Track Name: Matter of Perspective
Fingers creeping around my throat
Time to feel like I’m losing control
Life suddenly seems so much shorter
A gut punch and a sayonara

Can’t sleep and can’t get up now
Will this be the rest of my life
The same cycles the same routine
Maybe everything I do is in vain

Broken body falling to pieces
Have I caught my mind red handed
Searching for something in between
Clean and sober don’t really matter

Tell myself it’s all gonna work out
Just give it time it’s got to get better

I’m screaming
on the floor
I want to feel
Normal
Again
Again

Take a moment for yourself
A day or two I’m just out of sorts
Like clockwork we’re back to square one
Seems the same but so much different

I’m Tired of the interrogation
The story is harder to keep straight
Who knows what, and why, and where
Memory seems to serve me wrong

All the things I took for granted
Become so painfully obvious

Tell myself it’s all gonna work out
Just give it time it’s got to get better

I’m screaming
on the floor
I want to feel
Normal
Again
Again

Maybe life has passed me by
Staring in the rearview mirror
Just some changes nothing major
Except for all my overreactions

The match burns so bright and fast
It’s still burning and that’s good enough
Say it’s all a matter of perspective
The lenses change but you’re still the same

Tell myself it’s all gonna work out
Just give it time it’s gonna get better
Track Name: Revival
We started here
A million times
So many signs

Chronic requiescence
In my head
No more dread

Our faces are stoic
Just accept it
You’re the misfit

Days get shorter
Hit fast-forward
We’re so tortured

I still enjoy it
A one-way street
But stay discrete

Clearly a burden
Don’t you get
The same regret?

I’m still repeating
The same story
The same story
You keep on listening
A patient ear
For my fears
Our circle complete
We’re going nowhere
Are you aware?

I should have known better
I’ve got to know better
We’re living in a cycle
Hoping for a revival

Back at the start
The same signs
Between the lines

Racing to nowhere
A shrinking track
Another drawback

Your silence unw avers
My nonchalant
Confidant

No one will know
No suspicion
Is your position

I’m not the one
Don’t you think
We’re in sync

Made for a fool
Times still wastin’
Losing patience

I’m still repeating
The same story
The same story
You keep on listening
A patient ear
For my fears
Our circle complete
We’re going nowhere
Are you aware?

I should have known better
I’ve got to know better
We’re living in a cycle
Hoping for a revival

Starting all over
Falling apart
Bleeding hearts

Will this go anywhere
Was I so wrong
To tag-along

Who gives up first
Tried to outlast
Should have passed

Lay waste to us
What was pretend
Still won’t end

Was it just me
An empty mirror
Clearest silver

I guess I’m sorry
It’s time to go
Don’t you know

I’m still repeating
The same story
The same story
You kept on listening
The patient ear
For my fears
Our circle complete
We went nowhere
And you don’t care.
Track Name: Stone Halls
Through stone halls
I hear your call
A perfect maze
I’m in your daze
Forever

Siege of cars
and Blinding stars
You’ve tried to take
Make no mistake
you’ve lost

Now I’m back
and off the track
Under the sun
Together we’ll run
Forever
Track Name: Hold On
I hold on to those
Same sounds I swear
I’ve heard before
Before

Remember
Those days
You never
Experienced
More tangible
Than memories
I feel it now
More than present day
I’m falling away
Into make believe

I hold on to those
Same sights I swear
I’ve seen before
Before

Remember
Those days
You never
Experienced
More tangible
Than memories
I feel it now
More than present day
I’m falling away
Into make believe

I hold on to that
Same feeling I swear
I’ve felt before
Before

Remember
Those days
You never
Experienced
More tangible
Than memories
I feel it now
More than present day
I’m falling away
Into make believe
