Track Name: Lost Inside
Stuck in this misery I'm holding on to hell, Feeling the pressure rise there's no one i can tell.
(I can feel that cold dark hand reach out)

Shouting i am not at peace i hear a voice that calls at my name, I cant even think it drives me insane
( Don't look down it'll be a new way in-)

In this moment i regret the things I've said
still, I cant forget

To find myself, to find myself, I'll find myself again
define myself and no one else, neurotic, embarrassed, self-centered, pissed to the end.

Wait for me I'll take a bit, I'm mustering the confidence (to see )
This time I'll take whats mine, the fuel inside this empty mind and ooh
Look at all the time you've wasted, feeling faint but I cant wait so.

I will think of all the reasons I should quit
still, I cant give in

I'll find myself, I'll find myself, I'll find myself again
define myself and no one else, lethargic, surrounded, reminded not to pretend.

I can walk away. cant i walk away?
I'm lost inside and have lost the will to fight
I cant recall the last time i made sense
still, I cant forget

To find myself, to find myself, I'll find myself again
define myself and no one else, erratic, emphatic, too livid to comprehend.

I can finally have a reason to remember
I can finally reach the thing that i want most
Track Name: Pangaea
Give me something sweet to eat, I bet you never took a second to retard your hate.
Didn't think you'd be the one ignored? never felt this way before?
Constricted in the way you think, you leave a hole in your whole consciousness but feel the same
I cant come to terms with the filth you spew, I'll be the one to dispose of you!

One day, you'll change, fear me, know that

Here I am, the reason that we're all inclined to fight
There I go, the force that forces love begins to fly

Follow their back cause you're feeling attacked, you reject the neglected and wont give a chance
I feel your apathy to what is inside,our morals the same but your kindness has seemed to divide.
So what if I don't resemble your family? the agony, the wrath in me,it causes my flame to ignite.
You're not cautious. you're blind. Do I not deserve your time?

You feel insecure. we're more different than you thought
But I'm here to stay, if you're afraid then run away.

Here I am, the reason that we're all inclined to fight
There I go, the force that forces love begins to fly

Heartless motives consume all logic, it takes the light and eradicates.
Burning bridges to feed your ignorance, show me love and i'll do the same.

Here I am, the reason that we're all inclined to fight
There I go, the force that forces love begins to fly
Cant you see, the empathy to feel another one
Here I am, the force that forces love begins to run
Track Name: Over Again
Here are my lies, don't set them aside,
The fear of the judgement arises inside
you will wait for the moment, to catch my mistake
I cant take all this bullshit so I wont wait-

Waiting, constantly in the void of anxiety afraid its all i can take
I cant believe all the time that I've wasted thinking i wasn't insane
And that I thought i could be alive to feel the pressure drop off of me.
Handling this, I feel I'm not the only one who'd do this over again

Over again.

I'm there waiting for the shit that you do,
you wont take a chance so you swallow subdued,
I don't want your disease, want your forgiveness,
run away from this moment so I can breathe-

Breathe, here or not I'm not wasting the chance to feel more than nothing.
The heat that fills me inside wont wash away if I stop my running.
In a way I think the devil just looks surrounded to follow me.
in my head, i cannot help but replay the agony over again.

Over Again.
Sorry I don't treat you like a prophet.
Is that what you'd like me to do?
I feel like something's going on
I feel like someone's going.

Here I go again, I feel like there's something ahead.
Waiting around like admitting the fact that I'm dead.
But I'm not giving up just yet. To feel like I'm normal i'd do again and again.

Over Again.
Sorry I don't treat you like a prophet.
Is that what you'd like me to do?
I feel like something's going on
I feel like someone's going.
Track Name: Articulate!
CHORUS:Hard on the toungue but I'm trying to try,
fucked by the social affinity
stutter and stammer my way to the end,
back out so i can dissolve this heat
heart beating fast i can feel their perception,
look to the ground to eradicate
weight in the words of the matter, I'm livid,
swallow the fear and articulate

How the voice outside fails the thoughts in my head,
makes me feel like I'm dead.
The time I waste around thinking my confidence sinking,
erased at the link of a thread

Defined by ability, I'm selfish Im selfish
Arrived as an entity of enchantment, serenity

Fuck, out of all the ways I could fuck this up I seem to cannot find anything to say
Cant even hear my thoughts, i'ts not like i wanted happiness anyway

Frozen in silence, charisma eroding, my mind cant control it

Within my thoughts I'm breathing, paranoid of how I appear

I can see

Release the tension around, here with a reason so i will succeed
Thank god, im more than a face, fear in my voice while i conjure the courage
I can feel their perception
