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

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

Ghost 02:34
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

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

Heavy Hearts 02:47
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

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
