Track Name: duplicates
collapsed
like a lung
i remember these frames from a place
that I've been in my sleep
these moments
they're copies
of some strange sort of fate
that we get to repeat
but those signals disappeared
as if they faded long ago
so i wait for the scene to replay to replay in the back
of my mind
in an honest attempt an honest attempt to reflect on who i am and what i've become
and even if I have to stand alone till the end it would still be worth knowing I tried when i had the chance to make the best of it
but even if having the foresight to know what to expect can't save me from seeing how my decisions effect everyone that's meant something to me
then every time I try to grasp it I'm left obsessing over the details of all the parts that i can't control
and that's always been my downfall
so many times in the past i've tried to change my path
and always ended back at square one
maybe someday these trials will add up to something that has some sort of worth
or maybe something i think is actually worth putting a little hope of my own into for a change
and if time doesn't exist
then it's just perceived as a possibility
a possibility of everything we'll ever know and ever do
put into an order for our brains to decode
then I could say it was just out of my control
and if there's any truth in that it looks like I'll have to struggle all the way up until I die to make the best possible version of myself to put back into the earth.
Track Name: losing
I just hope I can say that I gave everything whenever that day comes knocking on my doorstep to collect what I'm certain I'll owe to this rock that I ate off of and shit on
and maybe it's just another form of guilt from knowing that I'm nowhere near the best that I could ever be at anything but at least there's always room to improve
so i'll face every day as if it would be the last chance I'd ever have to grow into this world as I continue to pretend I have a place that feels like home.
but it feels more like a cell that i've been sentenced to between when you do and when you don't need something from me and if that's the way it works then it's a shame when you consider the amount of potential that's ignored by just blindly going forward with no knowledge of the course
and that makes me wonder if we could even do any better or if our kind will always be known for defeat.
Track Name: basic math
and if there's a chance we could just exist in a way without conflicts containing our trust
every day it's been seen as putting limits on the things that should grow and not recede
until we learn to teach these heads of all the ways our hearts dream for a day that their worth will be seen
and if I had to I'd stand here all day waiting fighting for a piece of what I was before a time that you could even claim you knew me
a test this is not of the character that lies within us each but a flawed vision of a weakness we've perceived
as the way we were raised into a world that gives nothing and then takes everything that it can

and some day when it's least expected it's gonna take us all
but I fear nothing of when our time comes to an end and the clock resets itself
for this place will finally know a peace that's deserved and long over due
but what I fear most before my end is that the sums of my labor will not even come close to adding up to everything that I have taken
what I fear most before my end is that the sums of my labor will not even come close to adding up to everything that I've taken
Track Name: a slightly downward angle
these ridges wear it all away
peeling the outer layers back
exposing fragments from within
compiled into what is lacked
a sense of feeling incomplete
with uncertainty inside our path
but if you stand for your beliefs
that's when a shadow will be cast
over the heads of those who seek
a way to make you think you can't succeed
and they'll continue to underestimate
until their end is met with the sorrow
of those that they placed fear in the hearts of
just to make themselves feel better about
the emptiness inside
that grows everyday
and they will never stop
until the only thing we have is the emptiness inside
that grows everyday
and we will never stop
until the only thing you have is the emptiness inside
that grows everyday
and you will never stop
until the only thing they have is the emptiness inside
that grows everyday
and it will never stop
until the only thing that's left is the emptiness inside
that grows everyday
and it will never die
until the only light that's left no longer remains
