Track Name: Glass Crown (feat. River Elliott of Ballista)
Just don’t mistake my hatred for apathy,
And don’t confuse my disgust with negativity.
(Or it’s) all for nothing.
(Is this) all for nothing?

Is this message coming through?
Is there meaning behind these words?

I say these things, because I hope someone will listen.
I do this, because I hope it makes a difference.

I hope someone will listen.
I hope this makes a difference.

Is this all for nothing?

Even when the world feels like a fucking nightmare,
Even when life feels so hopeless,
I still refuse to believe that this is all for nothing.

Just don’t mistake my hatred for apathy,
And don’t confuse my disgust with negativity.
(Or it’s) all for nothing.
(Is this) all for nothing?

Nothing
Track Name: The Stalk
Fuck.

My days are numbered.
I can almost see the end from here.
With every word I speak, I write my eulogy.

There's no sense in trying to stop this.
My funeral procession marches on.
All these years, I knew my future in a day.
All these years, and now I can see my fate.

We've been poisoned, now we're just waiting to see who dies first.
Now we’re just waiting to see who dies first.
Either way, I lose.

My days are numbered.
I can almost see the end from here.
With every word I speak, I write my eulogy.
You can't save me.
Track Name: Hell Is Empty
These are just words,
carelessly strung together to help pass the time,
to help pacify our minds.

Just a smile, just a lie, just a means to an end.
Just a smile, just a lie, just a means to an end.

This conversation, it serves no purpose…but it’s what we do.
Fuck this. Fuck you.

Every moment hollow,
All emotions shallow.
Insincere, disingenuous.

When you can’t trust your friends (fake friends)
Just rely on your enemies (real enemies)
We’re so alone, lost in this crowd (lost in this crowd)

Just a smile, just a lie, just a means to an end.
Just a smile, just a lie, just a means to an end.

I’m buried beneath an avalanche, desperate to dig myself out.
I sometimes wonder if everyone feels this way.
Standing together, and at the same time so far apart.
It’s all an act to hide the fact we’re all begging to be seen.

Do you ever feel like the people you know don’t want to know you?
Do you ever wonder why you’re here, when no one seems to care?
Nothing’s real… Nothing’s real…

You talk a big game, but it’s all for show. Smiles can’t hide your bullshit lies.
The only thing that’s real in your world is sadness and desperation, you fake fuck.

Every embrace leaves another knife in my back.
Hell is empty, all the demons are here.
