Track Name: Sand of the Hourglass
(instrumental)
Track Name: Lie to Me
I lied to me just like I knew I would
I told myself one more time
And that would be the end

Oh, and I refuse to see
All I know
Has become unrecognizable to me

There’s a part of me I can’t leave behind
Though I don’t really want to admit it
There’s a side of me that is undermined
By my addicted state of mind

And I know that I am better
Than the shadow I’ve become
When the urges are too hard to overcome
For the hundredth last time
I’m stopping today
But in the end
I’ll lie to me

I broke again just like I knew I could
I tried to resist
But the temptation was too strong

Oh, and I refuse to see
All my dreams
Are crumbling right before me

There’s a part of me that sees the signs
But I tell myself to ignore them
There’s a part of me I can’t leave behind
My addiction and weakness combined

So I will wait until the sun goes down
To turn away
Before I drown
Tonight
Track Name: We Aren't
Once upon a time I loved myself
When I believed you were part of me
A hard truth was revealed with time
When all became a desperate plea
Controlling me

All the pressure within myself
Brings my weakness to light
What resides in this empty shell?
No matter how hard I try
We aren’t
What we had thought
I had hoped we were
But we were not

All I gave was never enough
What did I say to push you away
Hold me close
Leave me be
Come back
Set me free
Solace becomes dismay
I don’t wanna say

My whole life revolves around you
Lies you tell
Things you do

All the pressure we put on ourselves
Brings our weakness to light
What remains of this mutual hell?
No matter how hard we try
We aren’t
What we had thought
I had hoped we were
But we were not
Track Name: Last Request
Staring back at me
Those eyes I’ve always known
Appear darker now
As the distance has grown
And what happened
to who we used to be?
My purpose lost
Amidst the debris
Gone, forever gone

And I know you never will admit it
I was in the wrong but so were you
How can I move on
If I can’t forgive myself?

What’s left of me
When all this is through?
I might have lost that happy place
Along with losing you
It’s hard knowing that
All this was in vain
You left me here
And I took the blame
I took it all away

And I know you just can’t admit it
I was in the wrong but so were you
How can I move on
If I can’t forgive myself?

You have left a hole in my life
But I know that it will heal with time
This is my one last request
You won’t deny it
Leave with what you came
Deny all your shame
I know I’m not alright
And that’s okay
This is my one last request
You can’t deny it
Be real for once in your life
Track Name: Riptide
Should have never left this place
To find another
Open arms and empty space
Amongst the others
What did I expect to find
Maybe some dark amongst the light
Open arms and empty space
Amongst the others

Will you hurt me once more
So I can feel whole again
Please forget me once more
Because I can’t take it in

I tried to look beyond
But all I could see
Was a lone vessel
At odds with the sea

Would you leave me once more
So I can be me again
Would you bury me once more
Because I can’t take it in

I never thought I’d witness the day
Where the filth you’ve made
Would wash you away
Like a riptide out to the sea

Don’t you look back
Just turn and walk away
I wish nothing but good for you
I feel nothing for you
Track Name: Glass House
(instrumental)
Track Name: So Far Away
I was falling apart
No matter what I did
Nor how I tried to hide it
I was filling a void in my mind
With something less
Than with what I had started

Now that I’m looking back
I can see the distance
I kept between us
Withdrew me from

You
How have I fallen so far away from you
All I love I’ve fallen away from
You were all I wanted
But I pushed you away
As I dragged you down again
All that was worth having
Now feels so far away

Here’s to our love
And to all the times
I hoped it would get better
The weight of the guilt
And the constant lies
Seemed to weigh us down forever

I was living in a dream
Ignorant to the way I damaged us
Tearing our love from

I would give up anything in life
To go back and make things right
I’ve apologized so many times
That sorry means nothing at all
Track Name: Gone
Sometimes
It’s not the pain of love that hurts the worst
Sometimes
It’s our thoughts alone that kill us first
And I
Forget how it feels to be alive
Because I
Still feel this burning seer inside

So I’ll wait for a while
Stand off to the side
And see what the dawn brings
This road seems to go for miles
I don’t know what I’m looking for
Or where to find it

I stay here on my own
Surrounded I feel so alone
I wanna find me
But I’m already gone
No idea how it worked out this way
Maybe I’m just lost and afraid
The best of me is gone

No amount of words
Can dull this pain
Or release this darkness inside me
All I want is to let go
Of the toll these thoughts are taking
I tell myself to think about something else
But my life always drags me back
Sometimes I wish I was somebody else
Removed from myself

Hope to see myself again
When this life isn’t so hard to bear
As I lie awake at night
Hoping for someone to hear me

As I lie awake at night
Will you hear me

Sometimes
I wish I was somebody else
Sometimes
I wish I was nothing

I can feel my life
Moving around in circles
Like these thoughts in my mind
That won’t go away

I’m losing my mind
I’m losing control
I cannot erase them
I cannot let go
Track Name: Best Wishes
I am where I have chosen to be
Aware that you might
See the change that I’ve seen
Nothing is as it seems
Screaming inside
As if trapped in a dream
So why do I fail to recognize
I’m going nowhere
Hurting myself just to win
And I’ll do it again
Burden mine alone

And I don’t ever wanna let you go
But a difference stands beside us
And I don’t ever wanna let you know
But our bitterness divides us

Can you feel the fire burning
The house we built our lives on
Wasted years
Wasted life
Promises poorly timed
Hold my hand beside you
As if you’ll never let it go
All these thought inside you
As if we didn’t know

And I don’t ever wanna let you go
But a difference stands beside us
And I don’t ever wanna let you know
But our bitterness divides us
And I don’t ever wanna let you go
But our choices are behind us
And I don’t ever wanna let you know
But our selfishness defined us

Can you feel the fire burning
I can feel the fire burning everything down
Track Name: Runaway
The hourglass of my aspiration
Has been shattered
Even if I were to recover the pieces
The sand was all that mattered

So forget the pain
nothing really matters anyway
So forget it

Run
Run away
My memories fade
Run
Run away
Run from everything

As I’ve gone on
I have chosen to neglect
What truly matters
Murky waters have clouded my mind again
I see no further

Forget what I say
Nothing really matters anyway
So forget it

When everything is said and done
All I have left to do is run

Forever
Let go
Track Name: Stone Floor
(instrumental)
Track Name: One Last Time
Within this glass house
Behind these broken walls
Hides the shadowglass
To remember all

A candle dimming out
All we were fades away
Staring out the window
As all I’ve done replays
The warmth is all but gone
I’m barely pulling through
Because I built my life
On memories of you

Now you’re gone
Even though you said you’d never leave
Why hold on
To the part of me that still believes
In our love
There’s nothing left to hide behind
One last time
One last goodbye

Nothing feels right anymore
Do I know what I’m looking for
Your words shocked me to the core
Nothing feels like it was
Before I loved you

This glass house is crumbling away

One last thing
Before I let you go
Before I let this go
It was you
Who’ve made me what I am
For this I’m forever grateful
