Track Name: Expect Nothing
I can see it now, and I can feel it now
This is the last time that you wear your crown
Go ahead and try, go ahead and fight
You can’t, defend what you hide
You can never change, because it’s what you are
So you might as well, enjoy your scar

What makes you function this way?
What makes you destroy all you say?
I’ll never get it, I’ll never understand
But that’s a good thing, because I’ll never be anything like you

Why do you do the things you do?
What are you trying so hard to prove?
That you can see it, that you can feel it
No hope for you, no hope for you
You’ll never see it, you’ll never feel it
Something tells me that you are afraid of what you are
Track Name: Face#2
You’ve gone and done it now you’ve pushed me too far
I’ve seen your face, don’t like what you are
You symbolize all the things that I hate
Your focus gone and your thoughts astray

I don’t see myself in you
I do not understand what you do
You use us all to generate your soul
You use us all to generate what you know

And you bring us down
So bring it down

What can I do to change the things that you see?
What you want you take it from me
Without a care you force it on us
You’ve lost our friendship, and you’ve lost our trust
Track Name: Etched
What is this place, that makes me sick with rage
An unfamiliar place, that I, I return to
I question all that’s here, I sense all that’s near
I sink right down, I sink so far down
Into all of my thoughts, into all of my fears
Beneath all of my rage, is where I seem, I seem to stay

How can I be so certain, when it starts to grip my fear
My thoughts of rest are broken, all that’s dead I held so dear
And now time for reason, has done all but gone
What is left for me, what have I done so wrong

And all of my doubts
And all of my fear
And all of my rage
I can’t focus on it
Yet it seems so clear

Who has taken my time, the moments I spend receiving
Now all of my time, is just space
And I sink right down, I sink so far down
Into all of my corners, now it’s just me

Now it’s just me
And all of my doubts
And all of my fear
Track Name: In Time
Its greed
You don’t think
You just take
You take it away
Never paying attention to what you say
Now it’s killing me

It’s your greed
And it’s killing me

You don’t think
You just take
You take it away
Never paying attention to what you do
Now it’s killing you

Its greed
You don’t think
You just take
You just fucking take
Do you find pleasure in what you’ve done?
Do you like what you have become?
Track Name: In Your Defense
Do you know what you are doing?
I sure as hell don’t and I can admit it
There is a point I need to get passed

I could just sit here alone
Try and figure it out but it wouldn’t get done

My walls seem to rise even when I'm aware of it
Just because I feel I’m right does not mean you’re wrong

I sit
Criticize
Correct
Defend
Track Name: Hope
Can’t you see what you did?
I try real hard but I can never forgive

I kept it clean did all I could
It wasn’t me who never understood

It falls apart
It was nothing
Straight from the start

It’s all based on hope and strain
My mind’s erased from trying to maintain

I’m always stuck in this mental debt
I can’t forgive and I will never forget

Without you here I break apart?
Who was I kidding it was fucked up from the start
Track Name: My Spine
Remember me?
I forced myself right inside you
You’re a little weak, that’s all right
Cause I can guide you
Don’t try and think, don’t try and speak
Cause I won’t save you
But remember this, if you try and rise
Then I will break you

They got it all right here inside, your fucking thoughts, your fucking pride
And you feel they’ve got a right, to shut you down inside

My spine is ripped from me
You don’t know what I want
You don’t know what I need

My spine is ripped from my back
You don’t know what I am
You don’t know where I’m at

Remember me?
I forced myself right inside you
But you tried to speak and you tried to think
Now I must break you
Track Name: Mold
Sit down boy you are to blame
I'll only say this once again
What is it that you thought I said?
Now get those thoughts out of your head

Now shut your mouth and hear me speak
You wouldn’t dare you are to weak
What is it that you thought I said?
Now get those thoughts out of your head

I'll turn your head so you can’t see
I'll choke your throat till you can’t breath
I decide what you can and can’t be
Until you’re just like me

Just like me
Track Name: Just Being There
It's more than just being there!
