Track Name: Reciprocal Altruism
Always the first to start and last to finish
You've got a dying urge to be the center of attention
Reckless, aimless as well
A bitter taste was all you left in our mouths

As real as real can be
You'll never truly know me
Wasting our time it seems
This is the end (for you and me)

Your idea of this friendship is vague and warped at best

As real as real can be
You'll never truly know me
Wasting our time it seems
This is the end (for you and me)

This is the end
My friend you're dead
To me
Track Name: Raptors
A wise man once said to me
We're all just cheats and thieves
Just wait boy, you will see
Just wait and see
No hope for humanity
No more opportunity
I'll teach you how to eat your young
We'll eat your young
Show you how to steal from the weak
Just wait boy, you will see

I wanna see I wanna know
If there's a single stitch of good

I wanna see I wanna know
And if not, let's burn this fucker down
Track Name: Ghost
Empty homes tend to take a toll
And I'm constantly brought to my knees
If ghosts could speak to more than just me
You'd know, you'd know
I know

Am I just a ghost
Another soul for your empty home

I promise God I do believe
In Angels, Demons and what's in front of me
Some things are getting hard to restrain
And their aint no saints guiding me

Am I just a ghost
Another soul for your empty home

And I'm just a ghost
And I'm just a ghost
And I'm..
It's so hard to breathe
It's getting hard to breathe
When there aint no saints guiding me
Track Name: Destroy.Pain.Survive
They say this is the end of days
I say destroy everything
We can’t take it with us
I’m just trying my best to dull the pain

I’m so fucking insecure
That anger and violence come much easier
Than good decisions, than good decisions
I’ve been this way my whole life

What’s fair is fair
It’s been a long time coming
What’s fair is fair
When your whole world comes crashing down
(And who the fuck really cares)

What most people don’t seem to understand
This fucked up mess is just who I am

What’s fair is fair
It’s been a long time coming
What’s fair is fair
When your whole world comes crashing down
(And who the fuck really cares)

Your lifestyle aint a part of mine

Just know I’m gonna have to take this in strides
Acceptance means nothing in my eyes

I’m just trying to survive
We’re just trying to survive
Track Name: Heavy Hearts
I am a first born son 

Constantly reminded of the things I've fucked up 


And I may scream for better things 

But when I'm done I hang my head low 

Because the sobering fact that I've gone nowhere 

Makes me sick, sick to my stomach 



Hang my head 

Just like my hopes and dreams 

Let go 

Of everything I wanted to be 



So I've lived my life against your hopes and ideals 

That way I could never fail you 

What else have I got? 

Just a one trick pony 

And you can see right through me 



Hang my head 

Just like my hopes and dreams 

Let go 

Of everything I wanted to be 



I've made my mother cry a million tears 

Fought with my father for all these years 

What does this make me? 

Violent and shaky 

It's getting lonely, It's getting lonely

Track Name: Restrictions in a Freedom World
The truth, the struggle
Your dreams will crumble

The truth behind your image clashes
Blind hatred just aint for me
And the ideals in which we've crafted

The truth, the struggle
Your dreams will crumble

What's your view on the freedom world
Cause I'm looking at familiar faces
Going at similar paces
And I'll never quite understand why I'm so out of step
But I know there's no turning back

The truth, the struggle
Your dreams will crumble

There is no unity or strength in a world full of hypocrites

Cause I'm sick of impostors with hands held out
Like a friends embrace
But only to take and drain
All the life and love I have left in me

I have nothing to give
I have nothing
