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.

Track Name: Where I End
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
Track Name: Cowards
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
Track Name: Stranger
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
Track Name: Hold Me Down
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
