Track Name: Addiction To Nothingness
Being part of a race gone wrong
Will you conform to the nothingness man has done
I can see they are losing themselves and falling away
Coming back to what this world continues to say
Being part of a race that has lost direction
Like a child trying to find its way in the dark

Take a step back and look at this needless craving
This is me telling you to think for yourself
To reflect on the justification for every bit
And stop this binding of yourself to regret
This is what you should not forget

What it would mean to weld back together and make amends
What it would mean to become hope
To a generation committing a suicide of the mind

I watch as the poorly built walls around them
Collapse in and close any chance of seeing light
I watch as they bury themselves underneath the rubble of life

Still they wonder why and refuse to fight
There's been too many crushed from the pain of a world
Continuing to crush the restrained, but I refuse to let these struggles be in vain
To see one more changed
I won't stand by as the death toll of the minds continues to rise
I'll scream this til by throats bleeds out
Be strong, have heart, face this addiction to nothingness

I'm fed up with what this world wants us to be
Aren't we meant to be free?
I hope one day they might think outside
Of themselves and this lifestyle

They breathe for a living dead race
They're just living dead

Reclaim your mind, there is so much more
There's something in this life worth fighting for

What it would mean to weld back together and make amends
What it would mean to become hope
To a generation committing a suicide of the mind
What it would mean to weld back together and make amends
What it would mean to become hope
To a generation committing a suicide of the mind
Track Name: Detriment
Do you remember when we spoke every single day
How we talked about the things we thought we'd never say
How we were comfortable together in some unexpected way
With all I thought was real, it still went astray

Do you remember when we spoke every single day
How we talked about the things we thought we'd never say
How we were comfortable together in some unexpected way
With all I thought was real, it still went astray

I gave you my trust and I showed you my heart
Yet you were two faced right from the start
I told you what it meant after what I'd been through
Yet you tore the thought of something real straight in two
And now that I've said what I've wanted to say to you
The only thing I can hope you'll do
Is think on your mistakes and

Fix yourself

If only I could have known
This would lead to me
Lying awake at night
Only showing signs of life
On the inside
Thinking on what could have been

It's like I'm holding my breath until I can't see
Whenever my mind drifts back and relives each bit
Because with this fate never favoured me
And somehow I knew everything might just get worse
Instead of what used to be

If only I could have known
This would lead to me
Lying awake at night
Only showing signs of life
On the inside
Thinking on what could have been
Track Name: Endure, Survive (Reimagined)
"We are here for a reason. Maybe we were chosen - maybe someone, or something, saw potential in us, in YOU to do something great. Maybe they had the hope that we could be the dawn that breaks this nightmare - that we could be the spark of hope that this godforsaken world needs to bring peace, to banish despair, or inspire a change in someone that wouldn't have known hope otherwise. We don't have to be all of that, most of us can't, but if we can have what it takes to bring a change to one persons life... that's a hope worth holding on to."

I know that it's hard to bury your past and forget what's behind
When all these things that continue to plague you
Take up your time
And make you stay in your mind

So hear me out this time
Facing the trials and pains of this life
and making use of it knowing it will end
Is to be more loving than one who lets go

Never lose sight inside
(Endure, survive)
And remember when you struggle with your life
(Even through the toughest of times)
To suffer and to not learn
Is letting yourself burn

You could help change a pessimistic perspective
and remind someone of a reason that they should live
You could be remembered for the difference you made
Instead of leaving a pointless loss of life in your wake

So pull free from indecision, and
Realize the value of this chance you've been given
Believe in yourself, there's a reason to change your mind
Even meaning in these words to find

Never lose sight inside
(Endure, survive)
And remember when you struggle with your life
(Even through the toughest of times)
To suffer and to not learn
Is letting yourself burn

Sometimes the hard lessons learnt in life
Are exactly what we need to help us get back up on our feet
I've come this far and it's further than I ever would've dreamed
I'm not giving up that easily

Just watch me
