Track Name: Valediction
Why are you afraid?
Why are you terrified?
I'm not going to hurt you
I'm just here to help
Track Name: Try More Than One Word This Time
This cage is haunting me

Mocking my existence
Making me feel like there's no way out

You put me here
And you kept me here
As you spat through the bars
Every time, you walked by

You told me that I was useless
So I started to think, what you said was right
And that I was just a freak

But I don't exist to serve you (To serve you)
And your each and every whim
I only exist for myself

You put me here
And you kept me here
As you spat through the bars
Each and every time, you walked by

You told me that I was useless
So I started to think, what you said was right
And that I was just a freak

I know deep underneath
That what you said was a lie
But why did it all feel so real?

Why did it feel so real?

You told me I was useless
But I knew it was a lie
So I stand there, and I laughed
As I watched you burn
Track Name: Forever No More
You never opened up to me
You never let me in
I held out my hand for you
But never to feel your grasp
I just watched you fall out of love with life
I watched the light leave your eyes

So this is how the story ends
With my broken heart atop
A wooden carriage
Painted black so all can see
What you did to me
Maybe I will learn
From my mistakes

As I sit here and condemn my actions
I always thought that you would be here for me
But I was patient (Oh so patient)
You'd already given up
And when I lay my eyes upon your arms
I just blame myself for what had happened
But i'll stay strong for you
Do what I do

I just watched you fall out of love with life
I watched the light leave your eyes

I'll stay strong for you
Even in death you know I will always be here
Even though you left me behind
I won't try to keep up

So this is how the story ends
With my broken heart atop
A wooden carriage
Painted black so all can see
What you did to me
Maybe I will learn
From my mistakes
Track Name: Bad Wishes
You've been fine
While all this time
I've been slowly burning out

Stuck in your sick symphony
Making me feel like there's no way out (No way out)
And that I can't help you
But I know that there's a chance

How come I always try?
But you never help me through all my tough times

Stuck in your sick symphony
Making me feel like there's no way out (No way out)
And that I can't help you
But I know that there's a chance

I never wanted you to treat me this way
I only wanted to help
This was the most important thing to me
I only wanted your love
Your love
Your love

This is my promise
This is my promise
You will regret the day you took on my bad wishes
Track Name: Boundaries
You're breaking the boundaries
Cause you're hungry for more
There's a life with your name on it
And your decisions are throwing yourself into the deep end
You'll live a life of dependency
You'll destroy all your know

And when it all fades away
You'll realise that no one has stayed
I'm tired of paving this road for you
And fucking jumping these hurdles for you

Again and again
Again and again
The things that you say
They're making us sick

Again and again
Again and again
The drugs never worked
It's all in my head

The drugs never worked
It's all in my head
You'll scream though the silence
"I'm better off dead"

The friends that you've made
They're sick of your shit
You hide all your problems
You never break through your skin

And when it all fades away
You'll realise that no one has stayed
I'm tired of paving this road for you
And fucking jumping these hurdles for you

And when it all falls apart
You know, I said you fucking know that you'll never change
All the sacrifices they've made
You threw it all away
You threw it all away

You've only got yourself to blame

And when it all falls apart
(When it all falls)
The only light you had was gone
(The only light you had was gone)
And when they all walk away
(When they all walk away)
You'll only have yourself to blame
Track Name: Why I'm Still Here
Is there life after death? we'll never know
Maybe we should start living like we have a soul

I guess nothing's guarunteed
But I'll try my best
To make things go my way
Even though we're hurt
We will never lose

We're just skin and bones
They all deserve to grow
So I will stand here, still and free
To enable you to see
Through my eyes again
Live on through me

I'm here to help, all of those who need it

We're all just skin and bones
They all deserve to grow

Why the fuck am I so special?
I'm just some fucked up kid
With a decent heart
I don't know how you can tell me apart

We're just skin and bones
They all deserve to grow
So I will stand here, still and free
To enable you to see
Through my eyes again
Live on through me

I know all that you've lost
But trust me, it'll all be worth it
As I repeat the words that you said to me on that fateful day

I can still feel your pulse on my lips

On my lips
