Track Name: Nowhere To Hide
Are we going anywhere
We were all taught  to consume
To keep progressing its unrelenting
There is no end to this room
Were left in constant motion
Running with nowhere to hide
They smile and shove it down our throats
With no concern for our lives

"Give us your money, give us your time
Give us your soul, it will be fine"
When it all busts into flames
Theyll blame it on the ghosts
"Give us your money, give us your time
Give us your soul, it will be fine"
Take a second look and see
Their hands are soiled with our insides

In the shadows theres a way
Looking around, up and down
Just keep hoping, the doors not closing
Hurry up our time is now
The rivers never ending
Fighting upstream, cannot find
A way to solid ground

But who is really in control?
There is no way to stop it
The pieces here they never fit
But who is really in control?
There is no way to stop it
The pieces here they never fit
And all we want to do is quit

And when it all busts into flames
They'll blame it all on the ghosts
Take a second look and see
Their hands are soiled with our insides
With our insides
We gave you our money, we gave you our time
You took our soul, so why isn’t it fine?

Thats the price you fucking pay

You took it all
To feed your hollow existence
We paid the price
And you threw all of us aside
You took it all
Locked up inside you labyrinth
We paid the price
You took our souls
Track Name: Kill Screen
Kelly goes
Can we get a steady movement?
On this plane of abnormality.
Losing sleep.
And I can't find out what the truth is.
I'll find it buried somewhere within me.
My life's a fucking game of hide and seek
I'd rather be

Six feet under ground. Silenced by the sound.
Of all your cold regret. But don't forget me yet.
Six feet under ground. Silenced by the sound.
Of all your cold regret. But don't forget me yet.

Bury me with all my insecurities
Bury me with all my insecurities
Solace seems to be

Six feet under ground. Silenced by the sound.
Of all your cold regret. But don't forget me yet.
Six feet under ground. Silenced by the sound.
Of all your cold regret. But don't forget me yet.
but dont forget me yet

As I watch the floor cave in. I sink into my seat.
Never understanding why,
Things can't be the way they should be.
As I watch the floor cave in.I sink into my seat.
Never understanding why,
Things can't be the way they should be.
Be the way that they should be

So, let's perpetuate this motion.
I'll be there when it all falls down.
And while your reaching for the ceiling
You'll find me six feet underground.
Track Name: CTRL+Z
The time has come
To leave this place when i wake up
It’s just begun
I know
That ill find my way
I hope

I look for brighter days, and better things
A place that's calm and clear
A chance to hit reset
In a world I’ll call my own.

Its days like these
Where I sit and wait
For something to come and
Fucking take me away 
They tell me that its just temporary 
Just breathe and Ill be fine

With the pressures rising 
And my heart rate climbing 
All I want to do is leave
My mind starts turning 
And my stomach’s churning
I don’t know what I believe

Make a vow that when I wake up
I will throw this in my car
We’ll leave this town,
Bury my fuck ups

I look for brighter days, and better things
A place that's calm and clear
A chance to hit reset
I look for brighter days, and better things
A place that's calm and clear
A chance to hit reset
In a world I’ll call my own.

Starting with my best foot forward
I look ahead
This time Ill try not to fuck up
If not now then when

Sometimes its just impossible 
Never seeming to let up
Believing its improbable 
Not sure if I should give up
Give up on my friends
Track Name: Frenemies
Fuck you, I hope you burn in hell.
You think you're so damn special
Yeah, I'm talking to myself.
It's true, you brought this on yourself
You couldn't keep your mouth shut
You nee to fucking grow up

Here I am making enemies of friends.
Burning bridges, killing time.
So it ends, now let me find find myself once again.
Cause i know I’ll make it out alive

And hey, I hope you're doing well.
Just know you don't deserve this
I hope it was all worth it

Worth the time spent
Lost where my mind went
When the thinking stopped
Our lives were blocked

Here I am making enemies of friends.
Burning bridges, killing time.
So it ends, now let me find find myself once again.
Guess I'm staying in tonight.

So leave it up to me,
To fuck this whole thing up
And since we won’t agree
Just shut the fuck up
Without out conversation
Can’t fight this frustration
With no motivation
Mutual procrastination

And as perspectives change, they unveil new shadows
Shedding light on what once was in the dark,
I felt it slip from between my fingers
There was no attempt to stop it, I didn’t try to grab it
I felt it slip away, it might be for the better
We let it slip away

I felt it slip from between my fingers
There was no attempt to stop it
I felt it slip from between my fingers
You didn’t try to grab it
Track Name: Running In Place
Flying so high, you sometimes will get burned
When you wait for whats right, you’ll never need to turn
And take a step back, so you can take two forward
Never forget whats been lost, and be ready to learn

Racking my brain, but it just wont fit
Faster and faster, this shit never seems to quit
Vision blurred from these bloodshot eyes
But nothing else matters, we will always try

Cut the ties, draw the lines
Assess and adjust, follow your plan
Assess and adjust, the plan for progress

I won’t let apathy, get the fucking best of me
If I could get my head out of these fuckin clouds
Then if wouldn’t be so hard
And flying so high, sometimes I won’t get burned
When I wait for whats right, ill never need to turn
And take a step, back so you can take two forward
Never forget whats been lost and be ready to learn
Never forget whats been lost

Never leave it up to them
Not in their hands
Waiting on what will never come
But wishing it would

As I sit here
Where I’ve been so many times before
It would be a lie to tell you
That i wouldn’t like to walk right out that door
As I sit here
Where I’ve been so many times before
It would be a lie to tell you
That i wouldn’t like to walk right out that door
As I sit here
