Track Name: Serenity Now
SERENITY NOW
SERENITY NOW

I’m on the search for some peace
If only you could help me, please
I’ve searched for days, through sleepless nights
Can you tell I’m dying for it?

The search won’t end, the search won’t stop
Determined still, until I drop
It’s hard to bare, it’s hard to cope
Can you tell I’m dying for it?

Find the light through these trying times
Find the light

SERENITY NOW
SERENITY
DYING FOR IT
Track Name: Dear No-One
You’ve got something I can’t stand
You’ve got something I don’t have
You’ve got it so bad, you’ve got it so bad, you’ve got it so bad

Tongue wraps round your teeth to my disgust
Builds barriers and you’re oblivious
Destroyed my conception and distances us
It’s a word that I hate to project

HONESTLESSNESS—
Your brand of dishonesty

Dressed as a sheep, you lead others to think that you are something
YOU ARE NOTHING

I see through it, I see through you
Track Name: The Age of Excuses
In this day and age I am living in—
The age of excuses; I have found more and more
Nothing will be good enough, nothing will be right
I am not the problem, the excuse will satisfy

They are wrong, I am

Right or am I really just as much to blame
One foot before the other, but when I reach that step

Head looks down turned a-

Way because the unknown will catch me out of breath
Afraid of all my failure, collapsed from the weight

Regaining control, breaking insecurities

Keep telling myself that I’m beyond help, and I can’t do anything to control myself
My heart is racing ‘cause I know I’m wrong
Notions of liberation haunt me
Track Name: Spark
Hardwired for connection
Built into our physiology
Sometimes I feel the spark
And it ignites the fire

Searching and yearning
Always left unfulfilled
Simmering out almost instantly
Disconnect is all around

Small talk bullshit
Drama and mistakes
Connection is rare—rarely genuine
And all I feel is alone
Track Name: Catalyst
TRUE DEVOTION is what I always give
No matter what the bounty, my heart’s always in

So when I get fucked over, the joke ends up on you
Taking this misfortune, MAKE ANEW

Send me the apocalypse and I swear I’ll see you through
Give me all your bullshit; I’ll make a fool of you

You’re a fucking coward, hiding in success
It means nothing when you forget who made you best
Say I’ll fail without you, put me to the test
I’m like a fucking cockroach, never laid to rest

Giving my all comes back to break you
Living through this is sure to shake you
So let me be your catalyst
So let me be your catalyst
Track Name: Visions
After all that we’ve been through
You’d think that we can see this through
You tell me I need to change
But I don’t think we see the same

Is it me that sees things just so out of focus?
What will it take to make it, make it, MAKE IT CLEAR?

So much time between us
The things I’ve done would make you proud
But you’re too blind to notice
Too worried with your crowd
VISIONS, VISIONS, VISIONS, VISIONS OF YESTERDAY

You ignore so you don’t see the goals set out and met by me
The life I lead is not for you, your vision’s only got you skewed
I can’t believe I spent my time on someone who left me behind
A friendship that once meant the world, neglect has left me asking

How can you write me off?
I feel that I’m not enough for you to stay
I think that I’ve had enough
I try to look up, but things just seem the same
I’ve made up my mind today
Look away from the past and on to what is next
My vision has lead me here
Away from you, my vision is finally clear
Track Name: Brick by Brick
These wall grow taller and more thick
You’d think I’m keeping something out, but I’m trapping myself in
Forever in my darkness is where I’m most at home
These demons start to wake to comfort my known heart
To conquer what I thought they’d lost, but only put on hold
These demons they can’t leave me, they can only hope
To hide because I’ve built these walls FOR SO LONG
All my pain is trapped inside

So what’s the use in talking? My inner voice understands me best
What’s the use in reaching? Will I get a helping hand?
So what’s the use in talking? My inner voice understand me best
What’s the use in reaching?

I forgot how to feel anything more than pain
I’m aware the thoughts I have plague my mind
Consuming my reality it seems surreal
Just a vicious cycle

Caught in a sinkhole of my own self-worth
I’m going under by the weight of these poisonous thoughts
I can’t shake this—Finding myself getting weaker and weaker
The older I get, the further I drown

These walls grow taller
BRICK BY BRICK
These walls grow taller
BRICK BY BRICK

Betray my heart, devalue my mind, ignore my own advice
Setting this foundation, brick by brick I’ve come to find
I can’t bear the thought of being let down by someone else
I’m finding new ways to hide
Track Name: (Intro)vert
Blank, nothing left to say
I’m vacant, can’t you read it on my face?
Sick and tired of talking, nothing left for you
Holding onto nothing, what’s it gonna prove?

I’d speak what’s on my mind
But you can’t take the truth

Blank, nothing left to say
I’m vacant, can’t you read it on my face?
Sick and tired of talking, nothing left for you
Holding onto nothing, what’s it gonna prove?

I’d speak what’s on my mind
But you can’t take the truth

Don’t even try— you won’t find me out
Don’t even try—I know what you’re about
Don’t even try—‘cause you won’t find me out
Don’t even try—I know what you’re about
Track Name: Grace
Give me some goddamn grace, enough to see this through
When I think of you
It’s just all black and blue

Filled with rage, vision’s askew
I want to see past this
I want to be past you

In this resurrection, I want to be anew
The past is just filled death
Just like it, so are you

Filled with rage, vision’s askew
I want to be past this
I want to be past you
Give me praying hands and not clenched fists
I’m choosing clarity, not bitterness

Let me genuflect and take in my own faults
Rise up with purpose, you won’t see me fall
Head held high, confidence built up
Giving me the challenge to take back what is mine

Give me some GODDAMNFUCKINGGRACE
Track Name: Insanity Later
Living in a world that builds barriers
Based on my gender/race am I a lesser human?
If we were all color blind, would we see eye-to-eye?
Would I be less deserving of everything I’ve worked so hard to be?

A self-made man—or so he says
A self-made man—at the expense of others
A self-made man—of exploitation
A self-made bigot hiding behind his riches

Self-made chauvinist to build a fucking wall
A walking contradiction to tear this world apart
A new kind of Nazi to wipe us all out
When you build your fucking wall you’re gonna kick us all out

When you kick us out, whose gonna be there to clean up your mess?
Dirty work for a dirty fucking man
Filthy living for a stupid filthy fuck

Living in a country that breeds hate and contempt
