Track Name: Swervewolf
I know that you'd do whatever it takes
To bring us down to use us as your stepping stones
You'll be crawling back to me when you're alone
I say bring forth your knives, bring forth your knives

I am not the perpetrator (perpetrator) x2

Chorus:
You had your chance and now I'm gone
You were the one that walked away
There's no atonement for what you've done, what you’ve done

They always say that it gets better
But I'm stuck with you
You say you've done no harm
Can't you see the fucking proof?
Do you see this blade in my hand?
Does it make you understand
That you should just be satisfied

You deny what you do, [we see your lies, We see your lies]
You hurt those around you, I'm still alive, I'm still alive

I'm done with, I’m done with, I’m done with you

You had your chance and now I'm gone
You were the one that walked away
There's no atonement for what you've done

And if one day you come back again
I hope you watch the words you say
There are sacrifices to be made

Well it never felt so good [repeat]

Shit, The pieces won't fit
Something's missing and we'll never get it back
After we tried so many times to fix it
You had to do that
You turned it to shit
Something's wrong

You tore down the doors
Good memories and more
Feeling the need to settle the score
Emotionally beating me ‘til that final day
That I decided it was best to walk away

So now I'll go and start again
This is where we write "The End"
This time you're not in Volume 2
'Cause this is the time I am done with you

And if one day you come back again
I hope you watch the words you say
There are sacrifices to be made

You had your chance and now I'm gone
You were the one that walked away
There's no atonement for what you've done

And if one day you come back again
I hope you watch the words you say
There are sacrifices to be made

Track Name: Dreamer's Disease
You said you'd do anything for me
But in your actions I could see
That you were just trying to be a stupid romantic
And that you can't actually stick
To anything you say
I know you meant it
In the time that you said
That I'd have your heart always
But you ended up walking away from me
You walked away

Why can't people stick to what they say?

Chorus:
We'll never know what could have been
You are the plague that's haunting me
[Night and day I am a slave]

You never know that you may wake up someday
Knowing those words were meant for yesterday
And you no longer feel what you felt
And it burns another notch another scar
Into their soul and you caused that
Because you can't control what
You say, now is it really that hard?
People invest too much in
What others promise them
Why can't people stick to what they say?

Now that I see we're not meant to be
Why can't people stick to what they say?

Chorus:
We'll never know what could have been
You are the plague that's haunting me
That’s haunting me
[Night and day I am a slave]

Now you don't realize what you've done
But when you do I'll be gone

And I don't mind that I'm the only one
When will we come to realize
That there are consequences in our lives?
We take for granted the forgiveness
We think is easy to achieve
I suppose I'm the only one who believes
Maybe one day you'll see
What I did for you and me

Track Name: The Wars We Wage
You won't hear the sound of defeat
This is for the broken down
Get back on your feet
I've grown to
Build skin that
The sharpest knives can't cut into

Because you cannot imagine the war
That waged against their skin that night
Unless you bare the battle scars
It's not a passage right
All wounds can heal, can't you see?
It's not a passage right
Atonement isn't with a noose or a blade
Open your eyes!

You only bring the ones you love down
Turn your pain into what is good
I know you can make a change
You gotta do what you gotta do, Come on
So show me now with your hands
How many of you are hurting too?
Open your eyes or claim your demise
These are the lessons we learn in our life
Open your eyes or claim your demise
These are the lessons we learn in our life (in our life)

Life will test you to see what
It takes to bring you down
Survivors were the ones
That got back off the ground

How far
How fast
We've come
You can't begin to imagine the war

Just how can you
say you'd last one day in my shoes?

I've grown to
Build skin that
the sharpest knives can't cut into

Track Name: Brick Alley Beatdown
You're running away
From your problems you have no solutions
You left me at bay
You think I'd stay without some restitution?
There's no use in running
What you've done will catch up with you soon in time
You never confront me
You missed your chance and now I'll take what's mine

Chorus:
There’s nothing left to this equation now
The only solution is to hit the ground
Believe me when I say that it’s safe and sound
We’ll give it our all when we play for this crowd

Believe me when I say
That it's safe and sound

Only time will fix this sort of mess that you made
Can you see the pain that you've caused us, not just me?
How can you just sit and stare
At me with all your vicious glares
Pretending like I didn't know
That all your love was just a show
Talking shit behind my back
As if you had a harmless chat
Telling lies right to my face
Like I wouldn't find a trace
Little did you even know
That I would leave you on your own

Believe me
When I say it's safe and sound

You can't ignore
I should have known
You'd ruin it all, all on your own

Track Name: Boston, B*tch!
The mask falls and darkness expels
I'm in too deep, now I'm living in hell
I'll promise you dishonesty, trust in me
Bring on reality and I'll bring the pain

The only one in my way
Is who's staring back at me
The only one in my way is me

Chorus:
The only ones that can save me
are those that utter silence.
Stay with me, this is my demise
You ruin everything with your lies

I know that I can count on you
When your lips have been sewn shut
Keep them closed or else you're fucking done
I only trust the ones I've put to rest

The only one in my way
Is who's staring back at me
The only one in my way is me

Chorus:
The only ones that can save me
Are those that utter silence.
Stay with me, this is my demise
You ruin everything with your lies

The only ones that can save me
Are those that utter silence
Stay with me, this is my demise
You ruin everything with your LIES

I am the nightmare
that you're running from
I'll consume all your thoughts
and the air in your lungs
