Track Name: I Got You Fam
a final nail in the coffin
finish this and bury your guilt
you've been notorious for backstab theatrics
and disposing the evidence

another name to scratch from the list
another skeleton to conceal within (x2)
concealed within

killer killer, a dolled up death dealer
beneath the surface you're a blackened soul
killer killer, possessed barbie girl quite a concealer
you're emptiness craved innocents you stole

you're quite the creature
you're quite the creature invasive in your stare
beautiful but also hateful
you're so beautiful but deadly to the core

who'd ever consider you hell on heels
you're a beautiful yet deadly force of nature
time could only reveal

killer killer, a dolled up death dealer
beneath the surface you're a blackened soul
killer killer, possessed barbie girl quite a concealer
you're emptiness craved innocents you stole

I admit I've been the victim
caught in the webs you weave
I admit I've considered running
but with lips like those it's hard to leave
Track Name: Caged
hell lies within left in a state of decay
at war with inner demons
and with no sign of light I can only pray
this soul has weathered with tormented seasons

lost hope in salvation, as I've embraced damnation
this life turned out to be a thoughtless wreck
the hourglass is broken, time forever unspoken
no more love, no more hate, from life we separate

hollow remains leave any trace for the ravens to feast
I'm not the man you once knew, he's long since deceased

nothing lingers, only faint shadows of memories
fading with every passing hour
darkness, the creature never ceases to devour

halt your attempts to save this soul, once you've set foot in hell
the path is treacherous and fails to bid you well
treading amidst the Godless, in deathly hollows
delving deeper with time spent, entwined with the monster that follows

forsaken, i've accepted this fate
the cards are dealt with unsteady hands revealed
my soul is at stake
it's yours to take

nothing lingers, only faint shadows of memories
fading with every passing hour
darkness, the creature never ceases to devour

this is what I've become

this is what I've become
my demon
Track Name: Dead Tides
left bearing the weight of regret
an anchor dragging me beneath the depths
We'll leave this an unwritten chapter until our sunsets
aren't against lonely horizons
life will reset, we'll meet again, just don't forget
we'll meet again
just don't forget what I said

my soul lingers, awaiting a love reunited
and the current of life though it swept a distance between
our fate remains undecided
I won't allow death to keep us devided
I won't allow this

left bearing the weight of regret
an anchor dragging me beneath the depths
We'll leave this an unwritten chapter until our sunsets
aren't against lonely horizons
life will reset, we'll meet again, just don't forget
we'll meet again just don't forget
what I said

echoes of shattered yesterdays only these fragments remain
as the tides have taken we away with all these words I still need to say
seek me through the light of the shoreside
the gloom is temporary
this lighthouse where my ghost resides is a cemetery

(just don't forget)

Ocean of despair, you'll claim my corpse but my this heart (x2)

left bearing the weight of regret
an anchor dragging me beneath the depths
We'll leave this an unwritten chapter until our sunsets
aren't against lonely horizons
life will reset, we'll meet again, just don't forget
we'll meet again
just don't forget what I said
Track Name: Shattered Verge
I met the roads eager to escape
thought veiled in uncertainty
craving a sense of purpose
and bringing new verges of mentality
who am i, why am i here
is this existence our pinnacle
or is there no need for fear

I AM THE SEEKER
as those who've come before
in the midst of my adventures
opening subliminal doors

answers, I'm here for answers
what's in store

God I've found clarity now and I've embraced the path
treading with confidence though the roads crooked and cracked
I've witnessed my awakening, there's no turning back
in the wake of my aftermath

a bag against the shoulder
a city in the distance behind
memories that fade with only pictures to remind
of yesterdays outlined
writing new chapters as I'm in pursuit
of the man I'm destined to find

God I've found clarity now and I've embraced the path
treading with confidence though the roads crooked and cracked
I've witnessed my awakening, there's no turning back
in the wake of my aftermath
Track Name: The Salvager
I've faced hell
I've faced hell

I walked through the flames in order to conquer myself and rebuild
embrace the darkness, understanding any torture instilled
was a lesson I truly needed to grasp and overcome
before it got me killed, or simply overrun
I peered in the mirror of my soul
reflections of my demons bearing their teeth
inhaling the smoke of my transgressions I could barely breathe
the weight of my past collapsing on me

I've faced hell and I'm here to save you
After trials I've survived, let's rewrite our love anew
I've faced hell and I know we've fallen through
life's mean to offer second chances, a revitalized view

The devil couldn't finish me, I've learned from suffering
love left scars but I'm still living and breathing
the dead tides had swept me out to see but the ocean couldn't claim me
my pursuit of life and love had shattered verges worth breaking
and I've come to realize that the gamble was worth risking


I've faced hell and I'm here to save you
after trials I've survived, let's rewrite our love anew
I've faced hell and I know we've fallen through
life's mean to offer second chances, a revitalized view

there will be many times in this life where you will get to play the hero
but just remember one thing
before you save another
you must first save yourself

let the walls between us crumble
I'm sick of barriers that have kept us apart
this is our final stand, our last chance
for our eternity to start

as Calipso's song entwines melody in our hearts
we've sealed our fate and it's forever written in the stars
the hourglass of mortality becoming meaningless shards
