Track Name: Fallen Men
we are the fallen men, the citizens of nowhere
it’s pointless to pretend that this is progress
the fire and hope in our hearts is received as poison
the direction we’re forced to take isn’t one that we’d chosen

we’re getting further away

chances to be someone good: every one we’ve wasted
chances to save ourselves: we may never be given again
have we spend so long on the shelf
(gathering dust and losing friends)
that we’ve lost touch with the world outside
when life once promised so much

we are the fallen men, the unappreciated
dragging around the weight of what we once created
if it doesn’t make us happy, why do we do it?
if it means so much, why do we do our best to ruin it?

at the back of all our dreams: rows of empty faces
reminding us that all we’ve seen will mean nothing in the end
fears that we never faced, precious time that went to waste
sat here waiting for the wave to come
when life once promised so much

we are the fallen men, the citizens of nowhere
Track Name: Empty Mirrors
i feel empty today
my meaning is slipping away
losing all concept of time
this truth is no longer mine

i’m slipping away, incomplete lines
i feel like an empty reflection
there’s something wrong with me
i can barely open my eyes

i feel poisoned inside
always matter over mind
i wish i was under, my days here are numbered
‘cause i’ve stopped believing in you

and how i need to realign
‘cause i feel so disconnected
and stop saying that i am doing fine
you are such a fucking liar
there’s something wrong with me
i can see it in your eyes

becoming something that i don’t believe in
becoming something with no integrity
becoming something that just breaks and damages
becoming something disconnected from me

i need something to believe in
i need something to know that i’m alive
this isn't the truth we're selling

mirror’s empty, lines incomplete
and i feel so disconnected
give me something, anything
that can help me get the edge back

there’s something wrong with me
Track Name: We Know It's Over
we know it’s over
‘cause the light has gone out in your eyes
we know it’s over
there are no stars in the sky tonight

things we hold in our hands
seem to fall away
everything we hold close to our hearts
seems to feel so cold now
as the broken pieces fall from between our fingers
we know it’s over

we know it’s over
‘cause the light has gone out in your eyes
we know it’s over
there are no stars in the sky tonight
Track Name: As Below, So Above
n/a
Track Name: Unsound
i hate the sound of my own voice
and i resent the fact i never had a choice
a choice to mute it
like you did
i’ve had to live with it
i’ve been burdened with it

and i hate that i don’t hear myself
when i speak all i hear is somebody else
somebody who muted me
someone who lied to me
since i was too young to understand the meaning

(ssssh, don’t tell mummy)

i can change my name, i can change my direction
but i can never escape this familiar inflection
this infliction, this genetic disease

that’s why i hate the sound of my own voice

i hate the sound of my own voice
