Track Name: Guillotine
Come to, in a pool of blood
Is it your own (your own)
You can feel the wounds
Can't save yourself now
You can feel the blade on the back of your neck
You had it all, You had it all in your hands
And Im taking away everything you took for granted

Your heaven turns to hell
As the demons pull you under
(youll pay for all you've done)
Time to end your reign
You'll realize why you're here
The Devil's whispered in your ear

You spoke poison to the world
Your affliction will be met with a heavy blade
Hold your God close
Tell me does, he hear your cry
You never battered an eye
So why should I

Feel the blade on the back of your fucking neck
Track Name: When Hell Feels Normal
Lost in a black hole that seems to never end
I can't remember what it's like to feel
I go through the motions
Day in and day out
But all I'm left with is numbness

Tell me when can I feel again
Drowning in hopelessness
Tell me how do I find my way out
How do I escape this hell
When hell feels normal to me

I try to swim to the surface, I try to break free
I try to reach out to you, a desperate sorrow
I cry for you
I need you now, more than you know
someone save me from this hell

Tell me, when can I feel again
swimming in hopelessness
Tell me how do I find my way out
How do I escape this hell
When hell feels normal to me

Someone tell me how, how do I live this life
This life of mine
With the never-ending strife, how do I live
When all I want is to end my life

I can't go another day knowing life will be the same
Someone save me from this hell
I need you now, I hate my hell

How do I get back up there
For days I have been asleep
Inside my body, I cannot leave me
I'm only resting on my knees
I'm functioning in red
Fuck it for the life of me
I constantly feel like you always have it out for me
Listening to the wishing well
I feel safe until I face my hell

Tell me

When can I feel again
Drowning in hopelessness
I'm a victim

Im a victim of my own thoughts
A prisoner of my mind
When i can finally free myself
from this hell inside my head
I will finally feel again
I hate my hell

This hell has ruined my life
But ill pretend im just fine
Youll never notice anyways
When hell feels normal to me
Track Name: Engraved
Where did this picture come from?
The one constructed from your misjudgment
You gotta look at it with 20/20
To see where the crown lays
I get it
It's only natural
To resort to old ways
Comfort is the go-to
Only action set in motion
Can send our prayers with the ocean

So go ahead, put on that front Solidify my thoughts
But if the wolf cries
I can't hear it

Blessed by attention
Convinced your perfection
Molded by the hands of deception
Engraved with convention
So go ahead, put on that front
Track Name: King Me (pt 1)
Your time is up
It's my turn now
On your fucking knees
Face the guillotine

Exert your hatred
Trust me I thrive on it
Give me everything you've got
Or I'll rip it from your hold
It's in my grasp
And I'm never letting go
I'm cutting it off
I'm done with it
You can have your pride
I will overcome
A war within myself
(I am the tyrant king)
(And the guillotine)
it's all a memory slowly fading
Forced out of that reality
Finding the real me
Am I all that I've wanted to become?

Breaking the will of instinct
The permanent impression
Primordial suggestion
Swaying the way I had thought
Existential recession
My heaven has turned to hell
Scavenging to get by
Bones weak mouth dry
The life has left your eyes
Let the blade fall

Separation is inevitable
Dying for resolve
Slipping through the cracks
Let it all go
Sinew and bone break
The world begins to pass
Take a second glance
That's all you get before you hit the glass
Track Name: Pawns
Left for the vultures
Picked clean
Of anything that
Resembled hope
Rotting with the
Dreams that once were
All that remains
Is a carcass
A colorless foreshadow
Of what's to come
They want to see you dissolve
Will you let them?

The afterimage
Leaves you to suffer
Blistered and broken
With nothing to loose
Hold tight
Give it all that you've got
Promise you that you will hold on
Can't you see there's nothing to loose?

In my mind
I've rearranged
All the pieces
Put into place
I Got out of the line
Now I'm doing just fine
Nothing but pawns
Letting them pull the strings
Nothing but pawns
You need
to make the change

Like a snake to its pray
Hold tight
Feel it's deadly bite
Hold tight
Constricting and sickening
Hold tight
Feeling dizzy
all I see is
My enemy
Drained slow
Everything I once knew

I'm just a pawn
It's just me pulling the strings
I'm just a pawn
Making the change
In my mind
I've rearranged
All the pieces
Put into place
I Got out of the line
Now I'm doing just fine

Nothing but pawns
Letting them pull the strings
Nothing but pawns
You need
to make the change
Stop following the line
Stop walking straight
A king plays with pawns
But still knows it's place
I know my place


Every pawn that you loose
Is a dwelled on mistake
You can't win the game
scared of the stakes
I know my place

In my mind
I've rearranged
All the pieces
Put into place
I Got out of the line
Now I'm doing just fine
Nothing but pawns
Letting them pull the strings
Nothing but pawns
You need
to make the change

Trust me one day
You will see things my way
Look at the facts and you'll see
Everything has come to me
Trust me one day
You will see things my way
Look at the facts and you'll see
The time will come for you to king me
The time has come
Give it to me
Look at the facts and you will see
Nothing but pawns
I'm pulling the strings
Track Name: Muddled Mind
I'm afraid of the repercussions
Of this fucked up world we live in
They set the bar
And expect you to reach it
Knowing damn well that
you'll never get it
A set of rules
And a book to play by
Is no way to live your life

How can you be so Naive
To what's right in front of you
How can you be so blind
It's all up to you
That dream is going nowhere
You gotta write your own page
In the history books
And never look back

Don't ever worry about what's in the darkness that awaits you
Don't ever worry about how long it takes
you'll get there
Don't ever worry about the ones that don't encourage you
Don't ever worry about
The People that don't want to help you

Don't give in to
The negative

Skin breaks
As it's teeth sink in
It pulls you under
Can't you see it's face?
A perfect reflection Of a muddled mind
Holding tightly to its disguise
An open heart to misguided clones
Break the mold of your old home
This world is your own
Even if they built my bones
I'll put my old self
In the moment
Where it belongs
Shoved beneath the floorboards
I am who I've been all along
Nothing's on replay
Cherish the worst days
As if they were your last
Live while you're here today

It takes you away
Pulls you under
Can't you see it's face?
Drowning you in disbelief
Can't you feel the weight?
It crosses your mind as you wonder
It's staring back in your face
Pale eyes and they terrorize
And making its way into my brain
Casting all this fear aside
And pushing this bitch away

Oh my god
Ignorance is the death of me
Rip out the tongue
Of innocence

Don't ever worry about what's in the darkness that awaits you
Don't ever worry about how long it takes
you'll get there
Don't ever worry about the ones that don't encourage you
Don't ever worry about
The People that don't want to help you

Drowning you in disbelief
Can't you feel the weight?
A perfect reflection
Of a muddled mind

QUILL & INK:
Let the blade fall
Separation is inevitible
Dying for resolve
Slipping thru the cracks
Let it all go
Let the blade fall
Track Name: Quill & Ink
Let the blade fall
Separation is inevitible
Dying for resolve
Slipping thru the cracks
Let it all go
Let the blade fall
Track Name: Crowned
I can't help but feel like
This is coming to an end
What feels like a lifetime
All gone to waist
The memories last
But the dream fades
The memories last
But the flame decays

This life has it's grip so tight
Around my neck
I don't recognize these hands
(I dont see the resemblance)
These thoughts
They aren't my own
(its driving me insane)
A network of imbalance
Keeps me separated

I'm falling deeper and deeper
Into this rut

I don't deserve this
I tell myself
I don't deserve this
but I don't know any different

Let me float
I can feel the earth between my toes
But somehow I know I am not here
Let me float
Al I want is to breathe alone
I'm Under constant fire to become who I'm supposed to be
Track Name: King Me (pt 2)
Another one gone
A flick of the wrist
That's all it takes
You're right back
At square one
I know how you feel
Darkness
It dwells within you
Ready to consume
At any given moment
Tugging at your soul
Lurking beneath
The layer

Slowly consuming you
Reminisce
That's all you've got left
Before it manifests
Strips you of everything
And casts it's plague

Misguided sorrow
Taken to a point
I never thought I'd see
Incapable of knowing
How low you've become
The same story
Repeat offender
Suffocating yourself
From your own lack
Of self understanding
Stuck in that mode
You know,
That thing you call home

Push back, push away
I am safe here
Away from you
The one I hold dear
