Track Name: Crutch
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

thoughts keeping me from sleep
i think i'm in too deep
unraveling eternal dusk

life's only just begun
tomorrow holds new hope
i think the sadness won
dig me out of this hole
Track Name: Thanks For Nothing
doing so many things for others and nothing for me has really taken its toll
reaching out to other people for nothing in return has gotten old

fuck it, forget about everything
and there's nobody here to keep me company
just me, myself and i and the air i breathe

suffocating

fuck me for caring about you
fuck you for leaving me behind
i'm undoubtly depressed in case you couldn't tell
i'm sure you failed to notice

people come and go as they please, but do they ever miss me?

i know i need help, but it's hard to reach out when you're already in hell
i'm living in it, basking in it
so fucking used to it

i'll never learn
why do i bother caring about another when i don't care about myself?
i don't care about myself

i live a lethal life
cataclysmic, ready to die

and now i know your "promise", your "committment" didn't mean shit
didn't mean shit
Track Name: blame (the guilt that follows)
i'm to blame
all i feel is guilt
i'm ashamed to live like this
all i really miss is what i had

but the pieces never fit
my emotions never quit

and i'm to blame
Track Name: Antipathy
this wasn't meant to be, this wasn't meant to be
why me, why me?
born into an angry, destructive family
love is replaced with resent
i am the walking target of torment
i've become the symbol of grief

i'm born dead, deadly born into all of this
it wasn't meant to be, meant to be
i'm clearly unwanted
my candlelight fights off the darkness
i have been given no power
i am unwanted

eat your fucking words

the elders wear a facade, wear a facade
why do they hide, why do they hide?
i am this candid existence
this downcast mood is solitude
inescapable, no refuge
what's it all look like on the outside?

destroy your life, destroying mine

could you take away all this pain?
could you take it all away?

away from me

i'm born dead, deadly born into all of this
it wasn't meant to be, meant to be
i'm clearly unwanted
my candlelight fights off the darkness
i have been given no power
i am unwanted
Track Name: Selfish & Sightless
i cannot stop what i'm meant to feel
i cannot change what is truly real
my thoughts are always changing, twitching, i am burning out
nothing seems to phase me anymore and that scares me now

so desensitized to everything and everyone
i have lived to see tragedies and many more
why is murder such a normal thing to read about?
because we all know that everyone will stop breathing eventually so
just live through the peaks, live through the valleys
air, food, and water, we have all that we need

i wish that this sadness wasn't always by my side
i don't want to be down for the rest of my life
i'd fight until the end of time for you
through all of the heartless people that want me dead
i hold the key to make everything better

it's either i have half or nothing at all
but either way, it's still a failing grade

i cannot stop what i'm meant to feel
i cannot change what is truly real
my thoughts are always changing, twitching I am burning out
nothing seems to phase me anymore and that scares me now

so desensitized to everything and everyone
i have lived to see tragedies and many more
why is murder such a normal thing to read about?
because we all know that everyone will stop breathing eventually so
just live through the peaks, live through the valleys
air, food, and water, we have all that we need

for the land of the deceived and the home of the grave
we'll blindly pledge our allegiance to the flag
in a place where everyone doesn't give a shit about anyone or anything except themselves

we aren't united, we are untied
we are so selfish, waiting in line, so who's next to die?

just fucking kill me

the anticipation is killing me slowly anyway, so just end it now
just end it now
why even try, born to die
i need to try, born to die
Track Name: Vanishing Act
dysphoria
no drive to live, no love to give
the sadness just sticks

build my walls
make damn sure no one can come in
isolation

exclude me from your thoughts
remember what you were taught

don't lean on me, i'll only fall apart
these violent visions of choking myself out with a rope
sight goes psycho

collapse, collapse, collapse
relax, relax, relax
how do i relax?
i just can't forget about the pain

slowly rotting, slowly forgotten

erase me, dim and fading
i don't know why this is so hard
i guess it's just one more thing for me to throw away

leave me alone

don't wake me up
don't fucking wake me up

a loser abusing himself
destroying and damaging everything that i touch
this lingering pain in my gut
these thoughts in my brain won't go away
they're taunting me, telling me "give up"
who do i trust?

dead to the world
