about

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fighting your inner demons can be difficult. Whether that be false opinions, criticism, doubt, or fear... Understand that it will always be there, so face it. Own up to who you are. All the good, all the bad. That’s who you are. Dark and light. Black and white. Beautiful.

Track Name: Analytics
I try to break away myself.
So I can understand more of this hell
but I just fall deeper back into that well
that was once sheltered from the cold until now.

Its walls exposed to people and weather that ripped it apart
that's where i found myself alone with my...

My analytical heart
Why won't it just stop
Why cant I just live my life
the way i used to

I hide myself from many of you
to keep the interest high and true
Its better than you knowing my faults
its better than knowing me at all

I was exposed to people and weather that ripped me apart
that's where i found myself alone with my...

My analytical heart
Why won't it just stop
Why cant I just live my life
the way i used to

My analytical heart
Why won't it just stop
Why cant I just live my life
the way i used to

I try to keep these thoughts locked up tight
above the pain I realized will not die
I’m afraid to face the fact that I have to fight
all the demons that I left in the corners of my mind.

I try to break away myself.
Track Name: Colors
So heres the truth
I forgot about you
the words you choose
clearly prove what we knew
you preach of love and truth
but you don’t know how its used

'Cause truth becomes a part of those who know how to use it properly
it finds a way into the hearts who know how to love everything
but these days I know how you treat it like a game
that's why I'd rather walk away from all this pain and agony

Yeah your colors show through
you know they ring true

It's clear that we're broken
from words that weren't spoken
pride has built our walls
so now I lay in my mess
alone and depressed
to accept my fate and fall

'Cause truth becomes a part of those who know how to use it properly
it finds a way into the hearts who know how to love everything
but these days I know how you treat it like a game
that's why I'd rather walk away from all this pain and agony

Yeah your colors show through
yeah your colors ring true
Track Name: Handouts
I searched for you
and I hoped that you
were something like me.

You gave me a home
in this new place with your jokes
and deep interpretations

Its was obvious from the start
we both wanted something from each others hearts.
you could see the use in me as I could see the use in you
what a trade for these selfish fools

But then I thought it was more than that
and I was wrong
this joke was all we had

We were fools screaming at the top of our lungs
waiting for the handouts from everyone
and I'm now gone from your judgment
Your judgement left me with no one
I'm gone
now I'm gone

The word betrayal was brought to me from you
from the messenger who’s known as my brother
who doesn't need these things like this in his life
so please take him and the rest of my nights

I will not make him chose
between a hero of lies
and a villain of truth

So now i run
and try to hide
from that world
I left behind

'Cause we were fools screaming at the top of our lungs
waiting for the handouts from everyone
and I'm now gone from your judgment
your judgement left me with no one I'm gone

'Cause we were fools screaming at the top of our lungs
your judgment left me with no one
and I'm now gone
waiting for you now
your judgement brought me from everyone

We Were fools
screaming at the top of lungs
waiting or the handouts from it all
and I'm now gone
waiting for you now
waiting for you to grow up
Track Name: How We Know
Oh this war just let it be done
yeah those scars and remarks they're just love
hidden by the clothes of our past
but we had to take the chance

If the war on the inside of my head
or was it when you turned away

You say that you know me
no I'm like the bottom your teeth
and I'm ashamed of the words you sold me
you're not a salesman but a thief
how we know

I see you've never cared at all
with self interest leading your thoughts
I didn't have to gain your respect
because I have earned my own.

But the war was on the outside of my head
or did you just turn away

You say that you know me
no I'm like the bottom your teeth
and I'm ashamed of the words you sold me
you're not a salesman but a thief
how we know
Track Name: Get Well Soon
When you write your name
can’t you see all the pain the pain the lines
that make the stains on the page that can bury me

I know this game and it all
about the way you play your rooks and queens
so dont try to put me in checkmate cause
i know you cause you created me
with your judgement, your punishment, your spite and your rage

'Cause I know the reasons behind everything
I know who you are cause you are me

And suicide is have the price when you can't control your mind
its time to face facts 'cause love is what you lack

Don't get me wrong, you're not the villain
I just need to detach from the mind that's got me trapped
