Track Name: Southtowne Lanes - Let You Go
A genius, alone and afraid, grasping at the last straws.

I let you go. I let you flounder, I let you reach; now I watch you drown.
I watch you fade away. I watch you use your last few fleeting moments to create negativity instead of sustainability.

Let you go.

Tired old man, resign yourself. Hand in your pride, sign it in sobriety, and let your love flourish. Let your loved ones take your hand, let them show you a better world than this. Please trust in your family, give it up. We’ve been chasing you for some time now.

I’ve watched you digress and drown since I could talk.
You’d always been my hero, my idol, my steadfast failsafe.
Time passes, now I’m older. I change, you stay the same.
And despite your errors I know you were doing what you could.

But you weren’t.

You won’t know what this did to me. And I had I known I would have put a stop to this long before.

Let your loved ones take your hand, let them show you a better world than this. Please trust in your family, give it up. We’ve been chasing you for some time.

Let you go.
Track Name: Fero Lux - I Saw Rats
I saw rats - feeding on where your heart should have been.
Ear to ear, I saw knives in your smile.
Vicious eyes/vagrant heart.

You'd draw out the blurred lines and then cross them all.
Cold nights remind her. May they always haunt.

You've instilled fear, guilt and shame into the heart of another. Every day that you awake just know that you're unforgiven.
Awake and every promise is broken, so closer to you I wait.

You've instilled fear, guilt and shame into the heart of another.
What is the mark of a coward? And how long would you endure it?

Awake and every promise is broken, so farther from you. I wait.
I won't forget the time that I saw rats - and I saw knives.

For as long as my bones are solid there is a curse on your name.
Track Name: Bueno Crusher - Iron Man (According to Mustafa Sayed, Age 11)
There are mornings I forget I am paralyzed--

push myself from piss and sweat drenched sheets to my chair,

that’s where I need my mother’s arms to hoist me up the stairs.

Sometimes I dream I’m Iron Man, withstanding bullets.

Tank in my way.

I open hulls like C-rations.

If I could run, I’d weave through’em like Pele.

The suit is on.

What I want is a block to play with my friends

without the gaze of snipers.

Locked on, all lasers, punching walls,

snatching cowards out their fucking towers.
Track Name: Telomeres - Older
I thought I knew what I wanted when
I was younger
Only to grow or
So I convinced myself.

But I’m as young now
As I was then
I’m just a little older.

Things don’t just melt away.
They build up, build up, build up.

Build up.

And as you step off your branch I just
Need you to know me.
I need you to know me.

Know me.
Track Name: Waste - char/
selfish fvck
youre so full of luck
time off from your heart
youve scraped her surface once twice
third times the charm
you never gave her up
sitting fat on your throne
she overpours your cup

thought id just get over it
miles gone and photos ripped up
and burned to shit
thought id just get over it
i feel this like a tourniquet
thought id just get over it

pain is all youre gonna get
so salt the wound with your own sweat
sleeping in a bed of regret
pain is all youre gonna get
Track Name: Church Tongue - Ghost World
Stuck in a ghost world.
Decaying away.
Talking to myself, waiting for
someone to answer.

But I can't ease off this thick skin
and I sure as hell can't imagine letting someone in.

Do they make a pill for that? Cause I don't want it. I won't try it.
"They really might make a pill for that."
You can't help me. I won't buy it.

I'm afraid of becoming a vessel of hauntings.
What am I supposed to do when I I've got no life to lose?
I'm afraid of becoming a vessel of hauntings.
What am I supposed to do when I I've got no life to lose?

You see, I'm always in character, but I'm always scared someone will see me miss my line.

Yeah, you've caught me it seems.
The sound of my soul was painted with gold.
Until I corned my emotion while it tired its expression.
It was never the same, never the same.
No need for intervention.

I'm stuck in a ghost world.
Decaying away.
Talking to myself, waiting for
someone else to answer.

Someday, someday I'll know who's to blame.

Watch me grow into the ground without care for a way out of hell or God's club of Holy's. To see how it ends just count to 30.
Track Name: CUTTERS - Excitable Liefeld
broken hearts
shattered jaws
making marks
with cannonballs

i saw you last when we were ten
but things have changed a lot since then
the wolves are out, we're almost home
we'll make it through just huddle close

space is just a grave for stars
at least we are where we belong
a photograph can steal your soul
leave you cold make you a ghost

if you follow me til the end of earth
when the darkness engulfs what we called the world
look at my chest there is a light
those are our hearts burning bright
Track Name: Ghost Key - 3.33
I would have saved you if I could.
I guess that's the problem with this story.
Months turned into years.
The bond we had was broken.
I'll never forget the promise we made.

It seems like I'm always apologizing.
I should have been there.
We should've been there.

It wasn't like you to think that way.
A mind bound in chains, searching for escape.
Even I couldn't see the hell you were facing.
You pulled the trigger and never said goodbye.

And with one shot you were gone, you left us bearing grief.
Did you even think of the effect that this would have on me.
I blamed myself for so long and nothing heals with time.
It's hard to grasp these thoughts in an invisible mind.

Losing you is making me lose my mind.
Track Name: Pariah - Bridgeburner
I’ll be the sweetest of poisons to wash down the taste of life
The burning bridge of desire, where lovers go to die
Nothing can be said to get through that thick fucking skull anymore
All is wrong in love and war
Track Name: Gutless - Attached
You're so close and yet so far. My hand is out to hold yours, my lips are stitched and shut. I'm so sick of the garbage around me.
And I'm losing my shit 'cause there's a storm (there's a storm). Sand and leaves my direction. My clothes fleet far from the basket. It's not like I had any plans; too busy drowning in my passion: a thankless job that gets the best of me. And I'm so fucking scared (so fucking scared) that I'm becoming a ball of anxiety and that I make everyone nervous. My friends have looks. They look so tired. So why would I put them through more?
It will not die. I have to fight.
And I am getting really of how I always feel the need to get drunk in order to feel at ease around people who care about me. And there are days I wake up and I feel like I'm done; like I'm building towards living alone in a box. But I know what needs to be done. I'll ditch the things I wanna be and I'll work with what I am.
The destination; it feels so close and yet so far.
And I know that it sounds strange, but I've always loved Thursdays because they're usually attached with that feeling that something great will finally happen, and nothing will stop it.
Track Name: Middle Child - Weight:Give
Every man has a burden they carry
Some shouldn’t carry others
Pouring out all that I’ve got
The weight is too much
to be boarding this vessel
The Weight Is too much
The Wait is too long.

One after another a problem needs a solution
Bothered by the smoke that becomes pollution
Loss of sleep to only become numb
(to only become numb)

This pathway - through life
Feels unbearable - at times
I don't have the strength
For these mountains I climb.

( Choir )

It is easy to tell someone
How best they can carry on
But not one man can define my weight

Until its been on their back
This is not an end
I can't grasp the concept
No matter how hard the facts

The cycle repeats
and it is filled again
These cycles always repeat,
but how quick I am to forget.

This burden is cancerous
It is easy to tell someone
How can I define my own weight
Track Name: Haily Taylor - Forest Fires
There's no one else, who quite gets me like you do
know's my thoughts, before I even do.
you know I'm scared, I wont let anyone in
well you broke down my walls, and you don't even know it yet

I'm running from the fire, and you caught with desire
and I, don't know where to go from here, I don't know what I'm doing here
my tensions getting higher and you, wont help put out the fire,
and It burns for you, yeah I'll burn for you.

There's no one else, that makes me feel the way you do,
when you smile, I cant help but do it too.
and I'm too scared, to even try and admit
that when I saw your eyes, well I've been blind every since

I'm running from the fire, and you caught with desire
and I, don't know where to go from here, I don't know what I'm doing here
my tensions getting higher and you, wont help put out the fire,
and It burns for you, yeah I'll burn for you.

And I'll, burn for you, if that's what you want me to do,
if that's what you want me to do, I'd do anything for you (x2)

I'm running from the fire, and you caught with desire
and I, don't know where to go from here, I don't know what I'm doing here
my tensions getting higher and you, wont help put out the fire,
and It burns for you, yeah I'll burn for you.

And I'll burn for you, I'll burn for you
I'm running through the forrest, to you.
Track Name: Gouge Away - Disease
You’re stuck in your own man-made cage
Bound by tradition and resistance to change
Claustrophobic - And it's closing in
Teeth shredding apart the skin.
Your tongue is violent
And it's about time you choke on it
Drooling with excuses
Your caveman mind is useless.
But at least it's at ease
Ignoring enough to be put to sleep (Out of your misery)
You think you’re doing what you please?
You’re groveling on your fucking knees.
You think your mind runs free?
It's infected with this disease.
Track Name: Lesser Men - Wichita
Your mother, your sister, your daughter/
All played an equal part/
In the breakdown that I witnessed/
In the back of the car/
I'm sorry, I didn't know what to do/
I'm sorry, I didn't know what to say to you/
But it was not your fault/
So please stop blaming yourself/
She came here on her own/
And she knows you wished you were there/
The city Wichita may remind you of your loss/
You must know your heart was in the right place for Diane/
And when the bad thoughts come, just look to your granddaughter/
For she is the memento that all life renews/
For she is the memorial of your closet friend/
