antid905 This album was very difficult to grow very fond of, but after digging into it I just couldn't stop listening to it anymore. It's rough, and it very well builds upon this roughness to deliver a devastating listening experience. Favorite track: Hold Me Down.

Where I End 02:31
We will be born again The garden's overgrown While the body turns to dust The past is dead And so am I Resurrection only comes from within They baptize me with the blood on their hands They could kill me if they ever desired I'm defenseless; I'm shattered Like a broken mirror, I bleed The blood of those who use me; Who try to pick me apart They try to piece me to a whole But these reflections always wound The ones who won't stay away We end where we begin Everyday is hell again In the end, we end where we begin
Cowards 02:31
Nothing heals if nothing bleeds Regret is withering my mind I can no longer trust myself Or anything I used to love No gods, no devils, no flags, no nations Mistakes were made, guilt was claimed Eternity on a deathbed I keep my eyes closed But I can still see Premonitions My body on the mantle; My heart in an urn How can I justify existence When the ones that remain and the ones who were loved aren't the same Buried in a shallow grave Shallow. Grave. The farther the distance between us The greater the void But the distance is all in my head Face your fears Cower away No difference is made We all die anyway Nothing heals if nothing bleeds
Stranger 02:57
To the shepherd, I'm no stranger to suffering I'm the blood of the lamb I will lay down my life For the sake of my enemy And I know who they are Decide my fate with the sword in my mouth Cut out my flaws, and define what I am The echoes of torment fall on deaf ears But I know they can feel it Sacrifice is all I've ever known And it's all I'll ever know Cut out my tongue Define what I am Just because I can open my mouth Doesn't mean that my words will be heard Uproot me, destroy me Control me, define me This is all that I wanted
Hold Me Down 03:59
I feel your presence But there's nothing behind me You walk right through me I feel nothing inside, but I feel you Holding me down Yeah I feel you Holding me down You're faceless And your voice is faint I failed you Do you even remember my name? If I tore my heart out If I told you everything I wouldn't even know where to begin I feel nothing at all, but I feel you Holding me down Yeah I feel you Holding me down
