Track Name: Those Calls
Those calls..
They've shaken up my bones too many times.
They pick pieces off my brain, any more I'll be insane.
Epitome of my darkest days.

This rut that I found myself in it lasted longer than any other self beating unrelentless state that I've found myself in. I hide my face to pretend that everything's ok. I wish everything was ok.

More funerals and hospital walks than anyone my age should ever know.
It's like even though theres light, it only shines the brightest when I'm home alone.
Unmotivated.

I know it's not just me.
I've been assured it's not just me.
But who's to believe?

More funerals and hospital walks than anyone my age should ever know.
It's like even though theres light, it only shines the brightest when I'm home alone.
Unmotivated.
Mentally emaciated.
Track Name: Don't Get Lost in the Ocean, It all Looks the Same
Drving along, the engines running smooth. the songs playing in the background help to lighten up the mood. when suddenly in front of you, an unfamiliar sight. cars coming straight at you, nothing you can do and then your world stops.....

And in that split second, everything surrounding you is gone.
All the fights with parents, siblings, friends, and nonsense drama talk.
Everything is out the window. Even the lies you told you probably never learned from.
It could all be tossed away, so easily.

So easily disposable, a wind up camera and a comb.
Risk someones life, just to get yourself ahead, ahead of what?
If it takes me to the other side, I hope I can fly.
Suspended thoughts in borrowed time.

Over the bridge or into an oncoming lane..
Ive been dodging the reaper since my neonatal days.

And in that split second, everything surrounding you is gone.
All the fights with parents, siblings, friends, and nonsense drama talk.
Everything is out the window. Even the lies you told you probably never learned from.

So easily disposable, a wind up camera and a comb.
Risk someones life, just to get yourself ahead, ahead of what?
If it takes me to the other side, I hope I can fly.
Suspended thoughts in borrowed time.

Look at this fool trying to be somebody, he feels superior, it doesnt phase me, you win .
Just another face.

So easily disposable, a wind up camera and a comb.
Drive like an asshole, just to get yourself ahead, ahead of what?
If it takes me to the other side, you'll probably fuckin cry.
Suspended thoughts in borrowed time.

dont get lost in the ocean it all looks the same.
the bottom is a sandbox.
and im still burying myself.
Track Name: Lake Tipping Point
Sentenced to death.
First the perfect cover up:
A model citizen with aspiration and hope.
Someone you'd trust with all your soul.
But underneath the deeds and dawww, a real shell of a man.
Tortured.
Flawed.

One day something snapped.

"No one will ever know the extent of my injuries.."

I jumped a building in the back of my mind.
and I cant walk. and I cant talk.
my inner everything is lost.
soup on the concrete.
but since I lived, I guess i'll talk..
I chopped him up before I sent him off.

So yeah, I killed a guy.
Ive been oppressed for my whole life.
I tried and tried to keep it inside, but this particular guy; he just pushed me right over the edge.
I claim self defense.
He came at me first with all his fuckin slurs.
I'm not even black.
a swing and a miss.
punch lines out from his face, so I did the same.

" Twenty years of anger and rage let out on one rat bastard soul."

One day something snapped.

"No one will ever know the whereabouts of his arteries."

I jumped a building in the back of my mind.
and I cant walk. and I cant talk.
my inner everything is lost.
soup on the concrete.
but since I lived, I guess i'll talk..
I chopped him up before I sent him off.

You ask me.. why...Why I killed a man with my bare hands?
I needed bait.. for a fishing trip...to Lake Tipping Point.
Cast out to salmon like the worm that he was.
