Track Name: Record of Sin
Immediate exit; shift in the weight
Foundations of misfiled trust
Piles of hurt, rooted in flesh
Returning your hope to the dust
And so you tighten your grip and your lust for control
With your eyes so intent on demise
You were abandoned at youth? Yeah well I feel it, too
I just hope you’ve acquired your prize

Fight, swinging your blade
Tying your noose
Adding to the record of sin
Lies and ancient charades
Which do you choose?
Adding to the endless record of sin

You painted murals with a knife in my back
These scars just aren’t fading away
Where do you draw the line between abuse and attack?
At being led and leading astray?

Fight, swinging your blade
Tying your noose
Adding to the record of sin
Lies and ancient charades
Which do you choose?
Adding to the record of sin; the endless record of sin

Four long years of steady abuse
And wounds reopened at the hands of you
Four more notches in the ugly record of sin
Track Name: Coward
Spineless, pathetic sniveling coward
Full to the brim of talk, but devoid of power
Don’t project your spinelessness on me
Track Name: Marked
I feel it inside, the world’s not for me
Branded at youth with the mark of a freak
Shrouded in darkness, drowning in fears
Wrestling thoughts of the blood my peers

Watch me die
Watch me die

Forced into light, feeling the burn
Placing my bet there’s no lesson to learn

Watch me die
Watch me die
Track Name: Costume
Your falsehood is slipping; your costume revealed
Your thirst for approval is barely concealed

Poser. Fake. Scoundrel. Snake.

The beauty of iron applied to the skin:
It exposes the liar, and decimates tin

But listen, I don’t see the fuss
‘Cause I’m nothing like you
You know I never was

Don’t you think it’s kind of sad you care so much what people think?
Must be something added to that Kool Aid that you always drink
Exposing that you’ve always been a coward and a poser
So save your bullshit rhetoric, and don’t come any closer

Poser. Fake. Scoundrel. Snake.
Track Name: Hollow
I wonder if it’s worth the fight
When shutting your mouth is an easy solution
You’re acting like you’ve got the right
It’s not like you’ve ever made a contribution

The answers are right in front of you, but you keep looking away
you’d rather live in ignorance
I think you’ve been led astray

But you’re coming to me like you’ve got the right, I promise you don’t
Just keep running your mouth with words you’ll never back up

So here’s my word of advice
Find something better to do
Cause someday, the words that you say
Are gonna come back to haunt you

So you’re standing in front of me, but you’ve got nothing to say
So you’re running to the internet
instead of running away

But we both know those are the same
You can’t win at life, so you play these games
When you roll the dice, you can’t play for keeps
You’ll pay the price, and its not cheap
don’t have the nerve to learn the truth about what it is that ensnares you
You didn’t listen then, you don’t listen now
If you cared at all, I’d show you how
But you never learn
Track Name: Candy in the Mix
Listen I’m not coming back
Breaking my wrist just to get out of their trap
Offering pity despite my escape
Better than living locked up in a cage

Beating my brain with the hand of your intrusive thoughts

Feel the levels rising as you pull me to the brink
Gripped with the aroma of the substance you drink
It’s hard to call it poison when there’s candy in the mix
But that’s not what you care about when out to get your fix

Beating my brain with the hand of your intrusive thoughts

Beating the cage that’s surrounding my brain
Just keep beating the cage that’s surrounding my brain; let me live
Track Name: Play Along
I’m still coming to terms and I’m learning to let go
I could go into specifics but you already know
That I’m never backing down from what I know to be true
I already wasted years bending the truth around you

I’m just still a little shocked it went as far as it went
Because the promise of a brother is word that shouldn’t bend

All that I ever wanted from you was a hand
But I guess that was too much to ask
Where was this grace when I needed it most?
How quickly my chances ran out
The nerve to try to get me to abandon my post
Just to kick me once you thought I was down

So you caved over and over again refusing to weigh out the cost
Pretending that you were a friend I hope it was worth the loss

But you expect me to play along?

The truth, it’s coming; it’s drawing a line, and it’s stopping for no one
But you? Who knows what it is that you stand for, probably nothing

But you expected me to play along, down on my knees praying to no one
And you expected me to compromise and leave my convictions at a hollow throne
I’ve said my piece, now the blood’s on your hands
