"A Failed Exorcism"

It's in the way your eyes perceive the worst in me
My opaque silhouette's been penetrated by the best
It's in the way we don't require words to speak
In dire need of a replacement script, cause this dialogue's been torn to shit
Sincerely I believe, we could use some sincerity
I'm so sick of second guessing your intentions
I swear demolition should be your profession

Of all the poison I've drank and the blades I've swallowed whole
You've hurt me the most, you've hurt me the most
Even after all the damage inflicted on my soul
You'd prefer to dream of a ghost, dream of a ghost

Now let's not pretend I'm not at fault
I've let you down so many times you have no height to fall
Finding hope is so hard when you're gone
Yet my previous efforts prove that not all is lost
I just need to find a way
to finally change; to replace
Your love for this game with your love for me

Of all the poison I've drank and the blades I've swallowed whole
You've hurt me the most, you've hurt me the most
Even after all the damage inflicted on my soul
You'd prefer to dream of ghost, dream of a ghost

I'm not giving up
I'm not giving up
I'm not giving up
I'm not giving up
I'm not giving up

After all the pain I've managed to survive
And in spite of all the doubt that I have locked inside
I know you won't choose a ghost, you can't choose a ghost


---

A song about slowly losing somebody you love to somebody else and the denial you put yourself through because you haven't accepted it yet.

"Behind the Curtain"

I hold the pictures and read through your notes
Doubting every line you wrote
You casted a fool girl
I played the perfect role
We published this scene and now I know

My judgement
Failed agent
My words
The leading role
Your directing
Award-winning
The ending
Heartbreaking

You must have an eye for talent
'Cause nobody could play that role like me
I've long since left the stage
But I dream to make my way back some day

My judgement
Failed agent
My words
The leading role
Your directing
Award-winning
The ending
Heartbreaking

Devoid of love, replaced by hate
I think its time he ends this play
Devoid of love replaced by hate
I think its time he burns the stage

---

My friend rewrote this song because it was shit, lol.

"Kathleen"

You slither like a snake after it's prey
As I watch you move, you hypnotize me
I'm waiting for the bite, the venom inside
Please inject me with your sin tonight
There's no sign of letting up
So don't you dare think of slowing down
I'm at a loss for words, as I stare at the curves
As you descend down

Where is your dignity? Are you kidding me?
You must be shameless if you thought I would change x2

Is there such a thing as selfless?
I'd like to think so
Is there such a thing as heartless?
Baby girl I know
Is there such a thing as heartless?
Baby girl I know
Is there such a thing as selfless?
Well hell if I know, hell if I know

Denial is your best friend, when the truth's too much to bare
When karma comes swinging, you've got so much to fear
You shed your clothes like a snake sheds skin
It's all routine, when you let them in
It's just a game, ignore the cost
Deception's easier when the lights are off

Get a hold of yourself (You can't change me)
Get a hold of yourself (You can't change me)
Get a hold of yourself (You can't change me)
Get a hold of yourself
Get a hold of yourself (You can't change me)
Get a hold of yourself (You can't change me)
Get a hold of yourself (You can't change me)
Get a hold of yourself

Self-respect is just a nightmare, so I pray you don't sleep well
Self-respect is just a nightmare, so I pray you don't sleep well
Self-respect is just a nightmare, so I pray you don't sleep well
Self-respect is just a nightmare
Love is just a game
Love is just a game
So burn in hell, burn in hell
Love is just a game
Love is just a game
So burn in hell, burn in hell

Get a hold of yourself (You can't change me)
Get a hold of yourself (You can't change me)
Get a hold of yourself (You can't change me)
Get a hold of yourself
Get a hold of yourself (You can't change me)
Get a hold of yourself (You can't change me)
Get a hold of yourself (You can't change me)
Get a hold of yourself

---

I wrote this one for my friend. It's about finding out that you were used by someone, and your refusal to let the experience change you for the worse.

There is a strong possibility that I'll be getting together with a few people to start an acoustic project, so I might actually be able to post our recordings if/when we make it to the studio.

I'm crossing my fingers.

"Montague V. Capulet"

I'm holding on, but I can't hold back
To let this go would prove that I am not a man
So don't let them make, make up your mind
Star-crossed lovers need only gaze up at the sky
Where did we go? Are we too far gone?
I need to know, because I feel lost

Please find your way tonight
Because I'm terrified
Please find your way tonight
Cause it's getting dark and I could really use the light

Please find your way tonight
Because I'm terrified
Please find your way tonight
Cause it's getting dark and I could really use the light

I'm holding on, but barely now
My hands are slipping, maybe we should let go
Because you let, them make up your mind
I can't stand the sight of this starless sky
Now we are lost and too far gone
Your lights they flicker out
It's getting colder now

Please find your way tonight
Because I'm terrified
Please find your way tonight
Cause it's getting dark and I could really use the light

Please find your way tonight
Because I'm terrified
Please find your way tonight
Cause it's getting dark and I could really use the light

An ugly reflection stares back at me
I curse the mirror, for what you've done to me
I'm so damn numb, and my heart is black
A pathetic void, showcasing what I lack

My faith
My faith
My faith
My faith

Please find your way tonight
Because I'm terrified
Please find your way tonight

Please find your way tonight
Because I'm terrified
Please find your way tonight
Cause it's getting cold and I could really use your light

---

Pretty simple premise. As evidenced by the title, it's about falling in loving someone that you can never be with.

"The Leech"

Give into hate when everything is too much
Compensate for your flaws and put me under the gun
You might as well just pull the trigger
Hell I'll do it myself, yeah I'll do it myself
So just wait, a little later in life
When I've got my shit together and you're still scraping by
Don't tell me that I crossed the line
Because your tongue's so sharp that it severs ties

You can say what you want, but you can't deprive of me of this

Let's take it slow
And make this more painful than you've ever known
Let's take this slow
Your body's just a carcass that the vultures left

Let's take it slow
And make this more painful than you've ever known
Let's take this slow
Your body's just a carcass that the vultures left alone

You've got depth; the type that you can drown in
You had a soul, but you went ahead and sold it
Your closest thing to a muse is your discontent
For the lack of an impact that you've been
It doesn't get much worse when your lowest point
Is so much farther than six feet under
You are the living dead, but you don't hunger for flesh
Just the love that you'll never have

Let's take it slow x4

Let's take it slow
And make this more painful than you've ever known
Let's take this slow
Your body's just a carcass that the vultures left

Let's take it slow
And make this more painful than you've ever known
Let's take this slow
Your body's just a carcass that the vultures left alone

---

Probably the most angry song I've written so far. It's about betrayal and exposing someone for who they really are.

"Homebound"

As I trace my steps to who I once was
I reach a hill that I can't climb up
As I'm reaching out, out of the abyss
I conclude I can't be more than this
The ground gives way and gravity takes me away
The boy that strayed; a fall from grace
Now I brace myself as I descend to earth
Cause I've been at free-fall since my birth

There's no time to numb the pain
Well that's okay, I don't feel a thing
There's no time to resuscitate
That's okay, I can't be saved

Where do I go from here?
Where do I go?
Where do I go from here?
Where do I go?

There's no time to numb the pain
Well that's okay, I don't feel a thing
There's no time to resuscitate
That's okay, I can't be saved

I stare at the canvas, and realize
This whole time I've painted my own demise
A prophecy better left unfulfilled
I'm an addict for bad habits, and now it's starting to kill

Where do I go from here?
Where do I go?
Where do I go from here?
Where do I go?

Where do I go from here?
Where do I go?
Where do I go from here?
I'm coming home

---

This one's about having a place to go where people love and accept you, no matter what poor/self-destructive decisions you make. It's my personal favorite so far.

"To Be"

Give me something to run from
I can't keep standing here
In desperate need of motivation
Even if the source is fear
Cause I'm not sure I can take
Another minute of this place
If apathy's a downpour
Then I'm standing in the rain

It echoes through my mind, echoes through my mind

Why are my dreams so far?
Why can't we focus on the things we are
And not on what we aren't
I can't seem to find a way
Maybe tomorrow, but not today

I'm a broken machine
Grab all the tools off of the rack,
You have no hope of fixing me
Cause I was made imperfect
Stitched together, lethargic circuits
I can try to to rebuild it all
Yet another unfinished protocol

It echoes through my mind, echoes through my mind

Why are my dreams so far?
Why can't we focus on the things we are
And not on what we aren't
I can't seem to find a way
Maybe tomorrow, but not today

You make it look so simple
With your aspirations at arm's length
Tell me how to follow through
Teach me how to be like you

It echoes through my mind, echoes through my mind

My dreams are not too far
I lost momentum when the road got rough
But now I've found my pace
Why make it tomorrow,
when it can be today?

My dreams are not too far
I lost momentum when the road got rough
But now I've found my pace
I won't waste my life away

---

A song I wrote for another friend. It's about struggling to find motivation and finding someone that inspires you. The title kind of has a hidden meaning because the word "be" is also composed of the same letters as the initials in someone's name he really looks up to.

"Into the Good Night"

I'm scared
I can't cope
I'm so torn
Like the end of my rope
And I can't find
The slightest peace of mind

If there was a heaven I'd storm the gates
Lead a one-man army, scour the place
Cause I wouldn't let death take you away

So much more aware of time
And what's left of it
Even when it seems to stand still
The sound of the clock ticks
A haunting limitation
A sick form of expiration

If there was a heaven I'd storm the gates
Lead a one-man army, scour the place
Cause I wouldn't let death take you away
If there was a god I'd commit blasphemy
The most epic battle the world's ever seen
Cause I wouldn't let him take you from me

I'll always remember you
I'll never forget
The person you were
The person I'd been

---

A song about death. The title is an obvious reference to Dylan Thomas.

Do you compose melodies for these as you write them, or are they just lyrics waiting to be made into songs?

Six of the songs are completely finished. Since we are an acoustic band, it was pretty easy for my buddies to write around the lyrics I created beforehand. Obviously some lines had to be cut/changed but the end result is really fucking good.

Honestly this is turning out much better than expected.

Really anxious to get into the studio to record our first single. I guess my friend has connections to Bryan Beeler who's helped bands like Chiodos to record their albums.

I'm excited as fuck.

"Acrophobic"

And I'm
Unsure that we'll ever make a mark
But I'm
Certain that we're better off
Embracing our wings
Chasing our dreams
Cause when it boils down
I want this to mean something

Merely onlookers
We've grounded ourselves for too long
We're closest to the sky with our eyes shut
Clipping these wings feels so wrong
So quit pretending and just be
Cause this wasted potential is killing me
I used to be afraid of heights
But now I fear dying before I ever take off

And I'm
Unsure that we'll ever make a mark
But I'm
Certain that we're better off
Embracing our wings
Chasing our dreams
Cause when it boils down
I want this to mean something

In the name of dedication
I declare this sky ours
The sun may outshine us
But we'll still be stars
Up there with the best of them
For all the world to see
Cause we've no shortage of passion
And we're running low on apathy

And I'm
Unsure that we'll ever make a mark
But I'm
Certain that we're better off
Embracing our wings
Chasing our dreams
Cause when it boils down
I want this to mean something

This goes out to everyone that abandoned me
You can't keep me, you can't keep me down
And this goes out to all those that never believed
You can't keep us, you can't keep us down

We've found our pace
We've found our pace

---

This song is essentially part 2 of "To Be" it plays on the same themes but it's about the entire band and our passion for music.

"Welcome to Azeroth"

You see, I can sympathize
With the way you've shattered
When the taste of bleach sounds appealing
When the view from the balcony is alluring
Break away from these thoughts
And hold out for this
Because there's hope to hold out for

And when you cry, know that you're heard
You aren't silent, I swear
We've all bitten the bullet
But only the strongest make it through it

It burns when your heart beats
It stings when your lungs breathe
Sometimes existing is too much
But don't let this break
Don't let this break you
It's moments like this that make you

And when you cry, know that you're heard
You aren't silent, I swear
We've all bitten the bullet
But only the strongest make it through it

There's so much more to life
There's so much more

So don't let this break
Don't let this break you
It's moments like this that make you

---

A song about overcoming depression and adversity. Azeroth is the name of the world in WoW. No, the name isn't completely random; WoW was something I used to escape my problems/depression so it's actually quite relevant.

"Seven is the Loneliest Number"

I never managed to finish our story
So I guess these lines
Are some half-assed compensation
I still remember those nights
You were so fragile
Like beautiful things tend to be
But still I carved my way into your life
Disregarding the scars I'd leave
Selfishly
Like love tends to be

In retrospect I believe that this was for the best
Sometimes words don't make a difference
And I couldn't see that back then
Persisting for a miracle
Quite a pathetic plea
Come to find out
The tighter you grasp a rose
The more it makes you bleed

We have no future
And although our past is grim
It's helped me become more
Than I ever was before
I've finally come to terms with this
I guess that's what progress is

Yet my hands are still torn
From clutching blood-soaked thorns

I'm sorry, I'm so sorry

---

An apologetic song to someone I used to know. It's about finally moving on and forgiving them, as well as apologizing for all you've done wrong.

She had a rough life, her mother left her when she was just a little girl so she was pretty much set up to fail. Looking back on the shit she was put through, really helps me forgive the flaws of her nature.

This person's nickname was "Seven" because that was the number of letters in her name, and everyone would always pronounce her actual name wrong.
