Track Name: Cynic
I no longer want a place on Earth,
When everyone around me is just to easily hurt.

I"m convinced no one wants anything to do with me.
The soul inside me is dying more rapidly.
Possibly faster,
Than I anticipate.
Nothing seems to stop it,
Something I can't explain.

I'm convinced,
I am becoming.
Nothing short of a pessimist,
Nothing more than a cynic.
This is all a vicious cycle.
It needs to be cut off at the source.

My conscience,
For my family.
Is the only thing,
Keeping me here with you.
I don't know what the fuck to do.

That's what I thought,
Before you got to me.
Showed me that I can take the world.
Everything will be alright.
Everything is fine.

Turns out all you need in life,
Are worthy companions.
Because a life lived all alone,
Is not a life worth living at all.

I'm convinced,
I am becoming.
Nothing short of a pessimist,
Nothing more than a cynic.

If I'm a cynic,
I see the negative in every situation.
But don't confuse my honesty,
For my hatred.

I no longer want to be a cynic,
I no longer want to feel this hatred.
I no longer want to be a cynic,
I no longer want to feel this hate.
Track Name: Heaven Sent
Anyone who knows me,
Knows I sacrifice,
My own well being.
Just to make them happy.

I've never been inspired,
By anything but death.
So how do you expect me,
To feel life in my chest?
I don't think you're up there,
Watching over me.
But I can't seem to kick, this feeling.

I don't think you're up there
watching over me

If there is a God above,
Why can't I feel any love?
Questioning my life,
Is a daily event.
So if you're heaven sent,
I don't know where you went.

I don't know where you went,
I feel abandoned, I feel alone.

I need something to rely on,
Someone here on the ground.
Not someone up in the sky,
Nowhere to be found.

If something needs to happen.
Why don't you fend for yourself?
I feel abandoned, I feel alone.
What if my sacrifice goes unknown?

My future won't depend on fictitious figures.
Planning out my choices,
Until I hear their voices.

I see all their faces.
I feel all their glances.
Wasting their chances.
Planning false investments.

I have never known a love,
That makes me thank the man above.
I have never known a love,
So I'll stick to my own decisions.

How else will I learn?
Track Name: Best In Me
I want to start this.

By saying first off,
I've lived a happy life.
All of my values, I learned from you.
Although you've been here my whole life,
Please convince me, put down this knife.

Thats the only glimpse, of a human being,
Anyone sees in me.
Don't get me wrong.
Don't take this the wrong way.
You're not the failure here, all of the wrong in life is me.

Please just let me disappear.

Take my words for what they're worth.
Absolutely nothing.
But if you feel something, feel free to stop me.

I hope I can muster, courage enough,
To make it through all the words I have for you.
If this is the night,
That I say goodbye.
I want to make sure,
You don't cry.

Thank you for my joy filled days.
I know I wasn't the easiest to raise.
I want to be here for years to come.
But I'll tell you you're the only one,
That I've looked up to.
All the times we've been through.
I don't need a God to see,
That you've put the best in me.
Track Name: Lower Than Low Can Be
I'm coming home all alone,
With only one thing on my mind.

I heard your name yesterday,
And got depressed along the way.
And I can't say, "I'll be okay."
Because I heard your name yesterday.

The only place that I've had time to think,
Is every morning above the sink.
When I stare into the mirror.
I don't want to be here, I'm only staying out of fear.
Or maybe because of all that hope,
One day I'll be able to cope,
With the fact, I'll never have you.
I'll never have you, I'll never love you.

I heard your name yesterday,
And got depressed along the way.
And I can't say, "I'll be okay."
Because I heard your name yesterday

I've come to peace that, these thoughts will not cease.
As long as this life has got no lease.
I've come to peace, I've come to peace,
As long as this life has no lease.

I heard your name yesterday,
And got depressed along the way.
And I can't say, "I'll be okay."
Because I heard your name yesterday.

And is it too much for you, to see?
That this puts quite the burden,
Burden on me.

I've become lower than low can be.
Track Name: Disease
I’m forced to wake up, when I’m not even sleeping.
Going to bed when I’m not even dreaming.
I’m just a good for nothing waste of space,

Contributing to less than anything.
Deadbeat, a fucking disease.

Everyone is a burden.
Weighing down on the people who love them.
Deadbeat.
Broke and distraught with no money to eat.

And on the subject of love,
I’ve learned to never get my hopes up,
Because it always ends in disappointment.
I can’t make myself happy.
How could I do the same for you?
Put you through this hell.
The pressure of my fingers pressing on sealed eyes,
Can only fix so much.

Rip my heart out, bury it deep.
Spit on the ground where it's resting beneath.
And as I drive these tree lined streets,
I can’t help but sink into my seat.

And as I write these words wondering if they’re heard,
I realize they’re the only thing I’m proud of.
The only thing at all.

Waiting by the phone when I’m talking all alone.
I don’t belong on the ground that I walk on.
I don’t deserve the air that I breathe.
I’ve become lower than low can be.
But I won’t go, you’d be all alone.

Deadbeat.
Curable disease.
I don’t belong on the ground that I walk on,
I don't deserve the air that I breathe.
Deadbeat.
Curable disease.
