Track Name: Hollow Bastion
Do you ever listen to yourself? and the stories you grown to tell? About all the guys you slept with, its been so many i lost count. Long awaited long gone are the days where you were real, and now you're just a ghost, lost soul in a living corpse, lost soul in a living corpseWhere were you The times I needed you most All the nights we'd sit and fight Telling me wrong from right Where were you. Where were you. Ive read these lines thousands of timesFinding solace In every one of your liesWith your lips on his cheek and this gun to my head, You've got me thinking that I'm Better off dead. you're the person you didn't want to become I remember what you said, and now you're just alone with every sober face you dread, don't tell me you're living because its your soul that's dead.
Track Name: Mackenzie
And hey Mackenzie I hope that you're listening to me. I know that the times, well they seem dark. And I know that these lines don't mean a thing to you at all. And hey Mackenzie, I wanted you to know that I cut down on the smokes and the caffeine that used to run my diet. You always seemed so concerned with the ways that I lived my life, and I thought you'd like to know that. And you know from the bags under my eyes that I haven't been sleeping through the night. And the blood that's building up behind my teeth from biting my tongue is gonna kill me. And mackenzie, I hope you know that Billy and I have been talking, and god well I miss you so. We were reminiscing about that night in my basement, when we watched shitty horror movies, and smoked cigarettes on my front porch. And hey Mackenzie, I wanted you to know that my doors are always open. And hey Mackenzie, I'm fucking begging, let me back in.
Track Name: 7414
Another year and i am back to square one, another year that i am losing the sound of your voice, Fireworks go off while my heart drops, i try to contain it all but theres those moments where i just see your face, the last time we ever spoke has gone from a movie to an image that haunts my mind, Ive become numb to the thought, that five years later I’m starting to forget the times we had, your impression will always remain but the feeling is fading away and i cant bring it back. Tomorrow i go back to where my life started and where yours ended, i dont feel right, my world has been on a tilt and i have to be the one that sets it straight, i wish you could help me through this but i know you’d want me to do it on my own, Find your heart and make your mark. 2 years ago, i never thought it was possible to talk to the dead until we spoke again, I feel you with me, when i walk outside, ill never let your name die as long as you stay by my side, why the fuck am i giving up?
Track Name: In Lieu Of
These words are caught up in the back of my throat, one wrong move I'll be the one that chokes, and I have been doing everything I can to just stay afloat, I just want you to know, I'm doing the best I can I just want to hear you say,"I'm proud of you",I've been waiting for the day, But it's too good to be true, I just want to know That I haven't been wasting my time,So look at me I'm a boy I'm drunk I'm 17,I'm just young and naive,so fucking young and naive,I just need a moment of peace,The shortest road became the longest drive home, every turn closer my hearts pumping faster and faster
Track Name: Revive
)Suspended in the air watching our lives fly by right in front of usWe're screaming fuck your shitWe don't need itWe can do this on our ownAnd there goes the neighborhood The cops won't leave but neither will weThe show must go onIt's on our skinIt's in our bloodWe're singing' woahAnd that night in my basement I passed a lukewarm beer to evanThis night is never going to endCause we won't ever changeThis night is never going to endCause we won't ever changeWe're singing' woah
