Track Name: Endurance
I lay here contemplating
The life I thought was waiting for me
But the cruel reality was
That the distance was filled by the sea
And here I was hoping

These demons are running through my head
They keep on screaming those words said
Will I ever be on my own?
On my own

The wind blows through my soul
And like ash, it flies away
I guess I will have to make do
With what little left remains
The will to carry on
Is what gives me the strength to say
I have finally let you go
So my affliction no longer remains

These demons are running through my head
They keep on screaming those words said
Will I ever be on my own?
On my own

This pain that you gave me
Is slowly fading
But the scar that love leaves
Never truly heals
Time is still passing
The last of it's lasting
It is time I let you know
I have finally let you go

Do you still dream of me?
The same pain that you left me
Was it so hard?
Was I the only one?

These demons are running through my head
They keep on screaming those words said
Will I ever be on my own?
Just leave me alone
Just leave me alone
Just leave me alone!
Just leave me alone!
Track Name: Sacrifice
I am holding on so loosely now
My grip is slipping from your hands
The feeling of falling and letting go
Sickens me to the core

It must be so for I fear
That my will is all but alive
I’m losing blood so quickly
I can’t help but giving up when you cry

But all is not lost I hold something still
Cause the invigorating sunlight creeps over the hills

I am hoping
I am stalling

Breaking
Breaking
Breaking Down
Losing
Everything
Burnt to the ground

The sun sets the lake on fire
Reflecting the far away light
The rays cascade over everything
The brilliance hinders my sight

The golden grass catches the flame
Filling me, giving me warmth
And the smoke envelopes everything
Leaving the scorched black earth

I am hoping
I am stalling

Breaking
Breaking
Breaking Down
Losing
Everything
Burnt to the ground


Everything I held up high I had to sacrifice
Watch it burn, the truth comes out, just don't close your eyes
Melt it down, pour it out, let the flames reach the sky
Let the smoke envelope the world so they can see your lies

I let it rise, I let it burn
I fed the flame, I let it burn
I sacrificed, I let it burn
Everything, I let it burn
I let it burn! (x8)
I let you burn!

Everything I held up high I had to sacrifice
Watch it burn, the truth comes out, just don't close your eyes
Melt it down, pour it out, let the flames reach the sky
Let the smoke envelope the world so they can see your lies

And the ash falls down...

Everything I held up high I had to sacrifice
Watch it burn, the truth comes out, just don't close your eyes
Melt it down, pour it out, let the flames reach the sky
Let the smoke envelope the world so they can see your lies
