Track Name: Leaving For Anywhere
Murmurs of discouraging words resonating throughout the classroom
He waits…he hopes he doesn’t have to go home now
He knows he hurts; he wants to change but doesn’t know how

It’s not fair how much you have to fight
It’s much harder for you to do what is right
Promise me you’ll never let them see you break
And treat everyday like it’s the last breathe you’ll take

Pretending that he doesn’t care for anyone
‘Cause all his life he’s felt like no one care

It’s not fair how much you have to fight
It’s much harder for you to do what is right
Promise me you’ll never let them see you break
And treat everyday like it’s the last breathe you’ll take

I’ll sacrifice for you
I’ll do anything I can do
Please don’t give up on me now
Retribution won’t allow

It’s not fair how much you have to fight
It’s much harder for you to do what is right
Promise me you’ll never let them see you break
And treat everyday like it’s the last breathe you’ll take
Track Name: Screaming Inside
I try to lift my head when I walk by
But it seems much heavier today
Filled with all these twisted thoughts I find
But I’m just too tired to fight this time

I know you notice that something’s wrong
I’m silently screaming at you

I can’t fight these demons that break me inside
I pray and hope this battle will not take my life

An empty room despite how many people are there
A psychotic paradigm despite the logic I know
The mental filter’s ripping and I’m getting scared
A rash decision’s lurking in the shadows

I can’t fight these demons that break me inside
I pray and hope this battle will not take my life
I toss and turn in fear that I won’t see daylight
I brace myself and wait for this pain to subside
Track Name: Once More
Standing in the hallway
Underneath the flashing light
Waiting for the fear to cease
Let my angel come
As I speak another hollow prayer
It’s the only way to fly

Just one more for the trip home
I’m trying to stop the demons within
I would quit tomorrow if only I could
Just one more to get me by

I need him here
To fill me up
He’s like a father figure to me
Handing out blessings from his pocket
But it’s an illness in disguise
It’s the only way to die

Just one more for the trip home
I’m trying to stop the demons within
I would quit tomorrow if only I could
Just one more to get me by

I know I’m incapacitated
But it’s the only way I feel alive
Eating away the life beneath my skin
Slip away…embrace the dawn

Just one more for the trip home
I’m trying to stop the demons within
I would quit tomorrow if only I could
Just one more to get me by
Track Name: In Plain View
[there are no words]
Track Name: Dear Mother
Memories slowly begin to fade
While walking becomes a steady struggle
Both in denial
Of truth we’re afraid to face

You stand here in silence
As I stand here in silence
It keeps me in comfort
Away from reality

I wait for you
To do something before I do
It’s easier to say that you’re okay
‘Cause I don’t want to let you go

You stand here in silence
As I stand here in silence
It keeps me in comfort
Away from reality
You stand here in silence
As I stand here in silence
It keeps me in comfort
Away from reality

I watch the wrinkles form
They gather just beneath your eyes
And I just, I just want you to know
One last thing before you go

You inspire me
You made me who I am
But you don’t, but you don’t, you don’t know, you don’t even know

And even though I watch
The life fall from your face
I smile anyway ‘cause I know you’re okay

You will hurt no more
You will cry no more
So we should all just let it go ‘cause in the end we’re all ONE
