Track Name: Once Lost...
We will fall no longer
We'll stand strong forever

We're all in this together
We will see this through
This world can't hold you down
I know the truth

I KNOW THE TRUTH

We will fall no longer
We'll stand strong forever
Track Name: Reclaimer (Change Everything)
I miss the days when everything was simple
Not a worry or a care in the world
Now I'm afraid of losing everything
I've spent so long searching for

All these complexities
Can't mask what's missing
True heart will win every time
True heart will win every time

Some people will never stop sinking
But I'll swim until I'm dead
Some people will never stop sinking
But I'll swim until I'm dead

I have become this person for a reason
Pushed back my past, forgotten what I was
We're losing faith, but we've held hope
We will carry on

Keep living in hate, it's all you know
I was meant for something more

YOU CAN'T TAKE THIS AWAY FROM ME
I KEPT THIS SHIP AFLOAT ALONE
And when the tide comes to take me
I won't give in

I have become this person for a reason
Pushed back my past, forgotten what I was
We're losing faith, but we've held hope
We will carry on

And I will change everything
I'll mold the world around me how I see fit

I've lost so much faith over the years
Always searching never looking inside of me
I will find my way, with or without you
I will find my way, with or without you
Track Name: Revelations
This is a time for change, will you stand strong
And embrace it?
Or turn your back to everything you love
Just to fight it with every breath?

The complete disrespect of what passes for the human race
Will never cease to amaze me
Day by day I am disgusted

WE COULD BE BETTER THAN THIS
WE SHOULD BE BETTER THAN THIS

Endless discontent can't hold me back

I've put my faith in a sick and dying world
And I've been proven wrong
Again and again
I make my way never looking back
This time around will be my last

I grow every single day
Yet I look around and nothing's changed
I want to see the world in a different way
I grow every single day
Yet I look around and nothing's change
IT STARTS TODAY

This is your chance to set things straight
So will you stand with me?

I don't want a war
I just pray for change
I am ashamed to say
This is my world today
Track Name: The Wolf and the Winter Cold
Climbing back, to reclaim a throne
Taken from me by family

I've been let down so many times
(Beaten broken and left behind)
I'll bury my hope and swallow my pride
(To live in this world, you've got a lot to learn)

Existence means nothing
Without a sense of reality

LIVE BY YOUR OWN WORDS
Stop crumbling
Under the weight of the world
My faith in everything
Will never be the same

I've been let down so many times
(Beaten broken and left behind)
I'll bury my hope and swallow my pride
(To live in this world, you've got a lot to learn)
If only I could wash my hands of this
I would keep away from everything I created
Without so much as a goodbye

I don't know how to do this on my own
But I swear to god, I'll climb my way to the top
I won't be held down
By the weight of past disasters

I'll set the world on fire
Just to leave it behind
I need to build a life for myself
Based not on greed and anger
We were meant for something
Something more than this
I left behind the man you made me be
END THIS MISANTHROPY
Track Name: Malice and Spite
You used to think that I had all the answers
Now I don't even know where I am
I'm doing everything I can, not to give up
This life is all I have

I've never seen more clearly
My whole life laid before my eyes
I cannot grow (I cannot grow, I cannot change)
Without these challenges I face everyday

So here I stand
Holding onto my faith with tattered hands
But I know this is not the end
I know this is not the end

How am I supposed to face another day
When the ones I love make me feel so weak?

Why can't I paint a perfect picture?
All the colors seem so muddy
Why must everyday be a struggle?
Why can't I just exist?

When this is all said and done
You'll wish you'd invested your trust better
(TRUST ME)
I'm stuck at the bottom staring up at the sky
I realize that it's always been this way

But I wont let this world tear me apart
I've come too far to let this overtake me
Even in these desperate moments
I welcome the embrace of change
I won't give in to the weakness and the greed
That brought me here in the first place

So here I stand
Holding onto my faith with tattered hands
But I know this is not the end
I know this is not the end

(When all the promises they made, they never came)
In the end they will never see
(And I've given everything just to face the day)
Eyes closed and facing away
(I won't let let my faith fall away)
But I need nothing from my past
MY FUTURE HOLDS ALL I NEED
