Coming awake, right out of the pit Leaving the ground Some points to make, willing to commit Bring this all down So many years postponing this A chance to shine Fuck all the fears, face the abyss Hold the front line This is the one thing that I won’t let end This is something designed to leave a scar This is meant to break, this is meant to mend This is just wondering who we are And we are the new... Call this a letter of intent Hear how we yell Brazen, we will make you assent You will raise hell How is one supposed to feel tall Cast a shadow Other than saying “screw it all” ? It’s bravado... This is the one thing that we won’t let end This is something designed to leave a scar This is meant to break, this is meant to mend This is just wondering who we are This is us rushing to get in the race This is us willingly going too far This is us trying to bash in your face This is us telling you who we are And we are the new... ...we are the new black

Reaching Out 04:10
Come on ! Trapped and choking up inside Feeling torn, twisted and tied And let’s go ! Time to face this shit head on, see what happens I guess making it rhyme can’t really make it worse And I know ! I fucking know what it looks like Thing is I can see it but I can't get it right Mood swings and panic attacks, obsessed with disrespect Every failure leaving my small confidence wrecked Clinging onto reason and onto righteousness Overcompensating, a pretentious mess OH ! It isn’t just for show ! It’s just me reaching out Passive agressive, ever compulsive With mixed feelings about being alone Reaching out Trapped and choking up inside Feeling torn, twisted and tied So you see I feel compelled to make my life a trial Cuz if don’t need to struggle, then I don’t feel worthwile And it makes me a giant pain in the ass Building up frustration until I break like glass Drowning into anger, letting the child inside take control Addiction to pornography taking its toll on my soul Feeling the urge to be right, to correct everybody Lashing out for no reason, and then feeling sorry OH ! It isn’t just for show ! It’s just me reaching out Passive agressive, ever compulsive With mixed feelings about being alone Reaching out

A Part of Me 03:23
You cunt, you dumb, you little whining piece of shit I’m so fed up with raising you but still there’s no way I can quit You filthy, goddamn lazy, crazy bitch, How can God let you be ? I tried over, and over and over again To give you an education so you would stop being so lame But you just failed and you’ve remained This unclean offspring, a part of me You have no self, so don’t you pretend to exist Cause I’m your law, the one who allows you to be Everything within you will be tamed by my fists So give in now, because you’re just a part of me I rule your life, I know all the things that you do You can’t hide no secrets from me, there’s no way for you to be you I’ll beat you down you silly clown Every time you’ll try to break free So don’t lock the fucking door I want you to obey Don’t you talk back no more Do as I say So don’t lock the fucking door I want you to obey Don’t you talk back no more Just kneel and pray You have no self, so don’t you pretend to exist Cause I’m your law, the one who allows you to be Everything within you will be tamed by my fists So give in now, because you’re just a part of me Crawl ! I don’t know why you have to make me be this way You know I love you, you just have to do everything I say You know I’m right, so no more fight Accept to be a part of me You have no self, so don’t you pretend to exist Cause I’m your law, the one who allows you to be Everything within you will be tamed by my fists So give in now, because you’re just a part of me

Why do you remain in darkness ? Why do you flee from light ? Why do you take the void as your mistress ? Why do you fade from sight ? Why do you revel in distress ? Why do you need to fight ? Why do you cripple your progress ? Why do you ache to smite ? Standing in the way In the way of your attainment Making yourself pay Master of your own enslavement And so it goes Why don’t you get it out of the way ? Why do you block your path ? Why do you need to lead yourself astray ? Why endure your own wrath ? Why can’t you once not trip yourself down ? Is it so much to ask ? Whenwill you finally stop running around ? When will you drop that mask ? Standing in the way In the way of your attainment Making yourself pay Master of your own enslavement And so it goes And you wither away... Lead 1 : Greg Lead 2 : Nicolas Muller

Insomnia 05:07
Night ! There we are once again, standing and waiting at the edge of the hole Right ! The fire in my chest is burning and the flames are out of control The sheets feel like lead, sweating in the bed, with no rest from it all Completely overwhelmed by what might have been I’m just banging away at a wall Drowning into a stream, lost in the flow of broken thoughts Stuck inches from my dreams, away from what I’ve always sought Is there anything that can make it stop ? How much fucking time is it gonna take before I finally drop ? The future and the past blend into a movie that goes on and on Behind my eyelids, dissolving myself, until the break of dawn Drowning into a stream, lost in the flow of broken thoughts Stuck inches from a dream, away from what I’ve always sought Yearning, cursing, raging, turning Yearning, cursing, raging Oh if only the night could fall Let go of me, turn off my soul Just let me sleep... let me sleep... let me sleep... let me sleep... Shut it down Hours and hours fall and die Kissing my sanity goodbye Among shattered pieces of I While all the fears intensify Night ! There we are once again, standing and waiting at the edge of the hole Right ! The fire in my chest is burning and the flames are out of control The future and the past blend into a movie that goes on and on Behind my eyelids dissolving myself until the break of dawn Drowning into a stream, lost in the flow of broken thoughts Stuck inches from a dream, away from what I’ve always sought Yearning, cursing, raging, turning Yearning, cursing, raging Oh if only the night could fall Let go of me, turn off my soul Oh how I wish the night would fall Grant me my wish, swallow me whole Just let me sleep...
