Track Name: Lapse
you're all talk, but no show
you get older, but you never grow

you'll never change for anything
you're stubborn and abusive, but maybe i'm just used to it
i quit, i fucking quit
quit it

and so it seems you'll just pretend that everything is fine
are you fucking blind use your eyes

i've become accustomed to being comfortable with getting walked all over
i'm your stepping stone, your staircase of despair
where would you be without my assistance

you're so persistent, you're so consistent
with treating me like absolute shit
forget about you, forget about me
forget about this, ignore this conflict

you drive me up a wall that i wish i could break through

no, i am not at fault
don't make me feel guilty
i'm tired of showing mercy towards you

so wipe those fucking tears
i promise you, nobody cares

deranged, psycho lunatic
punched in the stomach and can't catch my breath
i'm trying to clean up this mess but it keeps piling up
i'm losing my touch, fixing is a must

looking at me in disgust won't help much
i'm locked and loaded
Track Name: Wounded
i'll be honest, i haven't been happy in quite some time
i'm laughing because i've been lying for so long
what the fuck am i doing

tragic and drastic
fateful and disastrous
constantly overwhelmed by stress
detrimental, i think i'm going mental

all i ask of you is to cooperate
what a difficult task it must be to be there for me
for someone else other than yourself
irritated, this everlasting loathing

an entire world that has so far shown me nothing but disappointment
you've been no better
i suppose things could still get worse

pour me down the drain
poor me, i'm not okay
but can you tell

observing me running in circles
i just need some sustenance, some food for thought
that i can hurl up

i'm curled up, shaking and lonely
eyes shut, i'm running on empty

a sad excuse of a human being
scum at the bottom of the barrel

be quiet, don't make a sound
your voice is getting too loud
how dare you try to make a difference
how dare you try to finish this

pick me apart
if you get this message, say a word

i'm terrified of being unaccompanied
i'm slowly abandoning everyone and everything around me
shut down, i shut off the lights and just sit in the dark
i just sit in the dark
Track Name: Closure
i am mister misfortune, i'm a talking tragedy
low spirited, i lack a grin
distressed, dismal, in grief
no one hears when i weep
i think that i'm just weak

i don't need you like you need me
guilty, guilty
you're to blame and now i'm free
i am no longer afraid
