Track Name: Awakening
Here i am
Pouring my heart out 
For too long
Ive tried to find happiness in love
Left with a torn heart
You Are not alone
Among the broken and the lost
You are not alone
 
Pick yourself up
And realize happiness lies within yourself
 
Here i am
Speaking to you
Through all my trials
Im still standing
 
In a world where happiness is hard to find
The sky is your limit, you control your life
set the pace, make your goals
the world is yours, down set go
 
Open your eyes and ears
Free your mind from negativity
There is a hope in life
This is your chance to change yourself
Track Name: Seasons
A new seasons passing by
As these leaves fall down to earth
These colors are so bitter
As this bark decays
And my walls have all broken down
I find roots so quickly being cut short
 
It was said this storm will never reach this castle
But you brought the elements with your stride

Tear apart the promises from which he stands.

But you brought the elements with your stride.

So i thought if the earth was hollow
And these waves hush my steps
If i just keep on walking
Will the world recognize my breath?
Track Name: Benevolence
This friendships seem to be the last thing I hold dear.
I have no home, no dwelling place.
Just a room to vent and escape.
There is nothing left here, nothing left to see
There is nothing left here, but ashes and dreams

I will surely be forgotten by a world that will die with me,
I will surely be forgotten by a world that will die.

Hold me close, don't let these thoughts get the best of me.
Night and day again, my mind is trampled with the thoughts of an unsaved man.

They have a hold on my lips
As I speak out against my peers
I've seem to forgotten how to call on you for help
I've seem to forgotten that you hold all of my hope

So meet me in the everglades, we'll sit here and question the world
Talk to me because one day I will surely die, and I need to know.
Track Name: Premonition
Enraged I see myself looking
Looking forward to where things are better
Another attack at an innocent time
 
All these words spoken of negativity
Another blown proportion
Taken past the point of no return
 
A meter of sanity, has taken its toll
 
Oh how many times will you see
The hour glass is out, My time is over
This is my life.
Track Name: The Crooked
Will this world change itself?
 
I am the dreamer
And you are the thief
I can never forgive you
For these problems conceived 
 
Now the truth will unfold
While your future grows darker
You've lost your hold
On the chains you've bound around your own fucking neck.
 
Stand down
You have nothing
I held the ground that you walked upon
 
You've tried so hard to take a stand
To shed some light on the matter at hand
But there is so much that you don't see
So I won't let you blame this on me
 
I hold the key to your future
I see the betrayer from your past
There is only one way out now
Face me like a man 
 
Go play your mind games with someone else
Your fucking filth has plagued a brotherhood
 
You've tried so hard to take a stand
To shed some light on the matter at hand
But there is so much that you don't see
So I won't let you blame this on me.
