Track Name: Get Up
Get up, get up, get up, get up, GET UP

You’ve, held me down too long
It’s my time to get up again
I’m sick of you
And all the stupid things you do
I, need to move on to something better
I need to get you out of my life forever

This, is the end
I’ll rise above you
This, is the end
I’ll rise above you

Now’s, the time to
Get back on my feet
I won’t admit defeat
Now’s, the time to
Get back on my feet
I won’t admit defeat

You, cause me too much pain
It’s startin’ to drive me insane
So many fights
I just want to be treated right
I, need to move on to something better
I need to get you out of my life forever

Now’s, the time to
Get back on my feet
I won’t admit defeat
Now’s, the time to
Get back on my feet
I won’t admit defeat

Go
Get up

Now’s, the time to
Get back on my feet
I won’t admit defeat
Now’s, the time to
Get back on my feet
I won’t admit defeat

Get up
Track Name: It Ain't So Easycore
All I want in life is to live the dream
Have lots of money and do things extreme
Play in a rock band and tour everyday
But sometimes life seems to just get in the way

My life is full of work and stress
I feel like I’m a mess
I need sometime alone today
To play Nintendo to feel okay

If I saw the Government I’d deck em in the face
For stealing all my money to send monkeys into space
I don’t really know where all my money goes
Probably for their sports cars and all their fancy clothes

My life ain’t always easy
Sometimes my puns are way too cheesy
Then you look at me like I’m a fool
(Just admit that I’m cool)
Skateboarding and eating pizza
Beers by the pool the life you feel-a
Why can’t the perfect life come to me easy?
Easy

I spend my nights just recording new tunes
Check out my mixtape its fire ya goons
It’s got some bangers; it’s lit like a fuse
Too bad my vids only get a few views

My life is full of work and stress
I feel like I’m a mess
I need sometime alone today
To listen to metal to feel okay

I just want to
Win the lottery
To buy the things I need
To live the life I want

Urgh

My life ain’t always easy
Sometimes my puns are way too cheesy
Then you look at me like I’m a fool
(Just admit that I’m cool)
Skateboarding and eating pizza
Beers by the pool the life you feel-a
Why can’t the perfect life come to me easy?
Easy

Go
Track Name: Wasteland
I’m lost
No life for miles to see
I’m scared
No one to help save me
Stranded
No future to foresee
I need
To escape reality
Scattered
Bones all on the ground
Past lives
That were never found
Screaming
No one is around
Silence
Death without a sound

Trapped in this wasteland
Just want you to understand
I’m trapped in this wasteland
Won’t you give me your hand?

I can’t die in this place
My steps I have to retrace
Sweats dripping down my face
I’m lost in this desolate space
Show me a sign that you’re near
Show me a sign that you hear
My screams for you to appear
Help me rid all my fear

Trapped in this wasteland
Just want you to understand
I’m trapped in this wasteland
Won’t you give me your hand?

Trapped in this wasteland
Just want you to understand
I’m trapped in this wasteland
Won’t you give me your hand?
Track Name: Conflicted
Life is a constant fight
To just feel alright
I stay awake all night
In never ending fright
I need to clear my mind
Leave all conflicts behind
Escape the wretched bind
Hoping for love to find

I’m so conflicted in my head
So many words left unsaid
Just laying here in my bed
The pain won’t leave until I’m dead
I’m so conflicted in my head
So many words left unsaid
Just laying here in my bed
The pain won’t leave until I’m dead

I need someone here
To free me of my fear
Just want someone near
To help my mind clear
I pray for a sign
For a light to shine
A reason to feel loved
An answer from above

I’m so conflicted in my head
So many words left unsaid
Just laying here in my bed
The pain won’t leave until I’m dead
I’m so conflicted in my head
So many words left unsaid
Just laying here in my bed
The pain won’t leave until I’m dead

I have to find
Someone to save me
I have to find
Someone quickly
I have to find them
So I’ll be happy
But I’m Conflicted
So Conflicted

No

I’m so conflicted in my head
So many words left unsaid
Just laying here in my bed
The pain won’t leave until I’m dead
I’m so conflicted in my head
So many words left unsaid
Just laying here in my bed
The pain won’t leave until I’m dead
Track Name: Drown
All these feelings surround me
Like water it begins to flood
I can’t see where it starts
I can’t see where it ends

I feel like I’m drowning
Trapped within my mind
I need you to help me
Save me from myself

When I’m with you I’m happy
You make all the pain go away
I need you beside me
Forever to keep me safe

I feel like I’m drowning
Trapped within my mind
I need you to help me
Save me from myself

Save me

I feel like I’m drowning
Trapped within my mind
I need you to help me
Save me from myself

Save me, save me, save me, save me
Track Name: Captive
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Soulless
My body, Is now empty
There’s no soul, deep inside me
I’m my own, worst known enemy
I got to know, what’s wrong with me

I’m soulless
I’m soulless

I search for clues
No matter what I always lose
I search for signs
I lost my mind, that’s all I find
You took my soul
The reasons why I’ll never know
Your planned attack
I miss the past, I can’t go back

My body, Is now empty
There’s no soul, deep inside me
I’m my own, worst known enemy
I got to know, what’s wrong with me

I’m soulless
I’m soulless

I pray for hope
Don’t want to end up on a rope
I must move on
Even if my soul is gone

I’m soulless
I’m soulless

I’ll find a way
To survive another day
You haven’t won
I’ll be the one who doesn’t run

Ahhhh
Track Name: Enough is Enough
Whoa

This is the last time
I’ll get hurt by you
And angry too
You treated me so bad
And you made me sad
You’re the worst I’ve ever had
All these endless fights
Every single night
This can’t be right
We went down this road
Your true evil has shown
I’m going to explode

I can only take
So much
Pain that you make
I’m over it
I’ll move on from you
There are better things
In this world to do
Enough is enough

Why lash at me
When you’re not happy
It’s all useless misery
We’re supposed to be
Together happily
We can’t agree
We need to end this
Trying’s so useless
So helpless
I’ll say bye to you
And move on too
I’m starting new

I can only take
So much
Pain that you make
I’m over it
I’ll move on from you
There are better things
In this world to do
Enough is enough

You’ve kept pushing me
Closer to the edge
You’ve kept pushing me
Closer to the edge
Enough is enough

Oh

I can only take

I can only take
So much
Pain that you make
I’m over it
I’ll move on from you
There are better things
In this world to do
Enough is enough

Enough is enough
Track Name: Djust Kill Me Now
No matter how I act
I always get stabbed right in the back
Everyone treats me
Like I’m not worth anything
I’m always alone
Depressed and left here on my own
Shotgun to my head
I’ll probably be happier if I’m dead

I, have no soul
No heart, no one to trust
I’m such a failure
Just kill me now

Every time that I
Think about my life I cry
I breakdown and drink
The more I’m drunk the less I think
I feel so worthless
My whole life is just one huge mess
I’m giving up on this
Condemn myself to my abyss

Throw my life away
No longer want to stay
There’s no one I need
I’m filled with selfish greed
Push you all away
No longer want to stay
I will end my name
Only myself to blame

Just, just kill me now
I hate life anyhow
Just, just kill me now
I wanna die somehow
Just, just kill me now
I hate life anyhow
Just, just kill me now
Just kill me, now
Track Name: Inside the Shape
Ahhhh

Brotherhood is more than just a word
We’ve got each other’s backs
Until we both start to burn
Before the drinks, the drugs and the rivalry
You we’re my brother
Now a dead man is what I see

You’ve created a monster called reality
What you put your family through is a tragedy
Your actions and habits leave me to understand
I’ve got to turn my back on you and be the better man

Keep all my words and logic in your head
Cause if you don’t you’ll surely end up dead
I hope to never see your face again
Or if I do you’ll be all better then

You just don’t care what other people think
How can you have friends?
Your habits will make you sink
I watched you grow up
Now I’ll see you when you’re dead
Gone with your selfishness
And everything that you said

What you tried with me
Boils my blood
We were so happy
You were my best bud (x2)

You’re the knife and
I’m the stab wound (x2)
Track Name: Purge (2016)
There’s something inside my head
Making me feel so dead
This never ending pain
Is driving me completely and utterly insane

The depression grows
I’m experiencing highs and lows
I need to get these feelings expressed
Before these feelings turn me possessed

Free and clear
Up my mind
Invent and use
Whatever I can even find

My bodies standing still
I’m feeling so sick and ill
I need to escape these thoughts I’m thinking
So then I resort to excess drinking

My hands around the bottle
Sipping and feeling so awful
I look into the mirror
I’ve become everything that I’ve ever feared

Time to escape this prison
Before my body starts to stiffen
I need a way to escape this fate
I need a way to release this hate

Cleanse from unwanted feelings
Eject all the memories
Eviction of my condition
Free myself with a purge

I can’t take feeling this way
Don’t want to be alone
Cleanse myself from unwanted feelings
Free myself with a purge

I have to stop moping around
Get myself up off the ground
Have to move on from this curse
Take some action before it becomes worse

It’s time to fight the evil
Attack it from every angle
Never stop fighting until it’s gone
Fixing everything that went so wrong

Time to escape this prison
Before my body starts to stiffen
I need a way to escape this fate
I need a way to release this hate

There’s something inside my head
Making me feel so dead
This never ending pain
Is driving me completely and utterly insane

Time to escape this prison
Before my body starts to stiffen
I need a way to escape this fate
I need a way to release this hate
Track Name: Burden (Acoustic)
I’m tired of all the holding on
I’m tired of all the hurting
I can’t go on with this pain
It makes me feel so broken

I need to let go
Of this burden

I put my heart, and my soul
Out in the open
To just get ignored, or into fights
With words left unspoken
I tried my best, I gave it my all
To keep standing tall
Just wanted you, to pick me up
But you just let me fall

I watch my hopes and dreams
Burn to the ground
I can’t help but think it seems it’s too late now
My dedication, my motivation
Crumbles down
Burdens around me, it’s suffocating
Makes me drown

All this pain, inside me
Begins to make me break
I have a choice, to end it now
It’s really hard to make
I’m dead inside, just need someone
To bring me back to life
To make me feel, worth something
To end my inner strife

I watch my hopes and dreams
Burn to the ground
I can’t help think it seems
It’s too late now

Is someone there, are you listening
Help me now.
Burdens around me, it’s suffocating
Makes me drown
Track Name: Demons (2016)
I find myself in this place
Sweat dripping down my face
Memories I can’t erase
I’ve become true evil

Fighting the force within
Creating all my sin
My soul is not my own
I’m possessed by true fear

Black smoke surrounding
Demons Attacking
I feel them inside me
Taking over my mind
The evil takes over
My eyes glaze over
Darkness transcends me
Get them out of my head

*Screams*

It starts to control me
My thoughts make me worry
Murderous and bloody
Harming other souls

Inflicting pain on others
It makes me watch and suffer
This is not really me
But I’m the one who’s guilty

Black smoke surrounding
Demons Attacking
I feel them inside me
Taking over my mind
The evil takes over
My eyes glaze over
Darkness transcends me
Get them out of my head

It can’t be stopped
It never ends
The pain, the killing
Into darkness I transcend

*Screams*

It can’t be stopped
It never ends
The pain, the killing
Into darkness I transcend
Track Name: Stand Alone (2016)
(Instrumental)
Track Name: On My Mind
GO

The way you look at me
Makes me feel so happy
You take my breath away
I don’t know what to say
Everything about you
Everything that you do
Leaves me wanting more
For me to adore

Baby you’re always on my mind
Someone like you is so hard to find
You’re so beautiful, faithful and kind
Baby you’re always on my mind

We’ll go through things
Crap that life will bring
But we will make it through
No matter what we do
One day I’ll marry you
We’ll buy a house or two
We’ll live so happily
In our own reality

Baby you’re always on my mind
Someone like you is so hard to find
You’re so beautiful, faithful and kind
Baby you’re always on my mind

Baby you’re always on my mind
Someone like you is so hard to find

Baby you’re always on my mind
Someone like you is so hard to find
You’re so beautiful, faithful and kind
Baby you’re always on my mind

My mind (x4)
