Track Name: Exit Strategy
I packed my bags and I planned to leave here
So sick and tired of seeing your face on the walls
Until I found another reason to stay here
Let's juts make our home in this hell

There's no reason to go
There's no reason

I packed our things away in our new home
It doesn't seem that much different to me
When you turned around and said
"I think I'll take my mask off now"
That's when everything changed

It's time to end the masquerade
It's time to end it
Track Name: XV
I am a disaster
I am a fucking mess

New year, new liars
Your resolution was to cut out my eyes
New fear, new fires
That burn inside of me but noone can see
I am a god of affliction
I am your reasononable cause
I seek to become all that you're not
Nowhere to hide I'll weed out all of your flaws

I am a disaster
I am a fucking mess

I've been searching for a way
To break from these chains that hold me down
And I have been looking for a better way
To let go of all of this hate and now
I think I've finally found it

Move forward, turn back for nothing
I'd turn back for you

New year, new liars
Your resolution was to cut out my eyes
New fear, new fires
That burn inside of me but noone can see
I've been searching for a way
To break from these chains that hold me down
And I have been looking for a better way
To let go of all of this hate
So now I've found the best way
To break these chains is to never hear your name again
Track Name: Ab[use]
Suffering is optional, pain is forever

Remember what peace is while you can
This may be the last time it happens

Leading the way for the ones who betrayed you
Eating away at the core of who you could've been
Artificial harmony with everything around you
Repulsive, your catalyst burns the only ties to sanity

Resigned to leaving it all behind
Innocence now lost

Feigning trust for personal gain benefits no one
Ulterior motives are more noticeable than you think
What's mine is mine and what's done is done
We're tired of your lies you miserable cunt

You're all the same
Pretentious fucking human waste

Leading the way for the ones who betrayed you
Eating away at the core of who you could've been
Artificial harmony with everything around you
Repulsive, your catalyst burns the only ties to sanity
And your reign comes to a close
Track Name: Imposition
Let me tell you the story of how we fell apart
Ten thousand walls I've built around my weary heart
Yet still, you found a way to break me down

The summer winds gave me a shiver
As you crawled straight down my spine
Your calloused fingers pulling, ripping, tearing,
Deep into my mind
For every lash of that tongue another wall will rise up
I'm getting farther away
Because to you it's never enough

I didn't want you to hurt like this
But you just sat back and watched the flames
If I had my way this time
You would be burning here with me

Moving forward now is all that I have left
When I'm alone with my thoughts
My conscience leads me to unrest
Diving back into hell one last time
Knowing goddamn well my life's not the one on the line

I didn't want you to hurt like this
But you just sat back and watched the flames
If I had my way this time
You would be burning here with me

Let me tell you the story
Of how I ripped you from my heart
Ten thousand years it seemed
That we'd been living worlds apart
Now I know it's not my time
But yours has finally come
Your twisted claws they now release
From the throat to which they've clung
Track Name: Then Explain Yourself
What was your intention?
Did you expect me to bend to your will?
Would I give everything for someone that doesn't exist?
To alter an entire reality for the sake of amusement
Place false expectations on a desperate soul
Hope in time to fit the mold you've maliciously created
Your fucking spawn will burn
Tearing internal flesh
Bleeding from the eyes
This child devours its procreator
What did you expect?
Another dying puppet
Track Name: The Intricacy of Human Seclusion
If I could hold myself together for one more season
I'd use what I wove back together of my mind to keep you warm
Just come back to me and we can both go home

Staying up for a week straight isn't exactly what I had in mind
Sifting through a graveyard filled with everyone I used to be
How many times do I have to die before I find what I'm looking for?
How many lies must I tell myself before I finally feel alive?

If I could hold myself together for one more season
I'd use what I wove back together of my mind to keep you warm
Just come back to me and we can both go home

All the times I've bit my tongue, I should be mute by now
It seems that's not far from the truth,
My screams are nothing but silence in your head
You'll never hear a single word again
Let me die.

If I could hold myself together for one more season
I'd use what I wove back together of my mind to keep you warm
Just come back to me and we can both go home
There's no reason for us to face this storm alone
Track Name: Exit: Incomplete
There is no leaving here
There is no leaving this hell
