Track Name: Hero
One stop to see the horizon
A never ending fantasy
One man, he sees something in you
With little clue what it could be

No idea of who you are
What compelled you to come this far
Close your eyes forever now
You’ll find your way somehow

Put all your faith in the monsters
Who take you where you need to go
Almost unreal, yet you feel
Like it so close to your soul

No idea of what you were
What once was is now a blur
Fight the doubts and face your fears
No going back now, hear?

Do you want to be a hero?
Try to close your eyes,
Dreams will come alive
Feel the power brewing in you
A different point of view
Of what you thought you knew
Do you want to be a hero?
Let your tears cascade
The property of fate
Listen up, you’ve got it in you
Try to stay alive
In this afterlife!

No idea of who you are
What compelled you to come this far
Close your eyes forever now
You’ll find your way somehow

Do you want to be a hero?
Try to close your eyes,
Dreams will come alive
Feel the power brewing in you
A different point of view
Of what you thought you knew
Do you want to be a hero?
Let your tears cascade
The property of hate
Listen up, you’ve got it in you
Try to stay alive
In this afterlife!
Track Name: Bittersweet
Tell me, can you see this fear i know so well
Seeping out from underneath the mask I try to sell
once a glimmer, but with life and age i fell
Stuck in this illusion, in an air i can’t dispel

I wanna break free of the mem’ries that I’ve made
Under the plastic sky, just dying to be saved

But It’s not my time, and i know it’s not the way
Yeah it’s bittersweet, but what else is there to say?
Knowing someday soon, I’ll find freedom in the end
But for now I sit and wait for this cycle to begin once again

Feel the pressure in this vacuum i call home
Void of my emotion, I just wanna be alone
Tired anger, as the static turns to tone
Ringing in my mind until it seems it’s all I’ve known

All’s well that ends well, yet were stuck here in this scene
Playing like a rerun in a never ending dream

Still It’s not my time, and i know it’s not the way
Yeah it’s bittersweet, but what else is there to say?
Knowing someday soon, I’ll find freedom in the end
But for now I sit and wait for this cycle to begin once again

Life waits for no one, or so I fear

Yeah It’s not my time, and i know it’s not the way
Yeah it’s bittersweet, but what else is there to say?
Knowing someday soon, I’ll find freedom in the end
But for now I sit and wait for this cycle to begin once again
Track Name: Lead Mask Ballet
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Disciple
Everything will fade to grey
Nothing’s sticking in my head, anyway
As I lay in sheer dismay
Of the world I’ve built for myself day after day it’s
Not unreasonable to be so miserably when
Everything I’ve done has landed me this way
Silent overdrive of all my thoughts inside, I
I wanna shout out, but I don’t know what to say

I know you wanna hear I’m fine
But that’s just not the truth this time
You treat my sorrow like a crime
But I’m tired of trying, tired of dying
They say these things are meant to be
But all I know is misery
I’m showing you the best of me
But I’m tired of trying, tired of lying to you

While I etch my life in stone
With a fist full of sand to bury all I’ve known
Drink the sweat and tears off all my dreams and all my fears
And as it all comes down (and down, and down, and down)
Everything has come apart, Now I’m back here at the start
And though I’m promised it gets better, I’ve made failure an art
Why do you put up with my tries, They might as well have all been lies
With all the shit in which I thrive, It’s a wonder I’m alive!

I know you wanna hear I’m fine
But that’s just not the truth this time
You treat my sorrow like a crime
But I’m tired of trying, tired of dying
They say these things are meant to be
But all I know is misery
I’m showing you the best of me
But I’m tired of trying, tired of lying to you

Every time I close my eyes, I see all that i despise
every memory of mine that has worn me over time
Crushing every dream I know, let the vines begin to grow
Overtaking all I see, like a toxic melody
I am not your new messiah I will never take you higher
Don’t you put your trust in me If you ever want to see
I will simply put it in you, all the hate that I have been through
Keep away, or you’ll stay, and your life will rot away
Track Name: So I'm Told
In spite of all the things I've said
I find myself so weak
The light is quickly fading
as my soul becomes antique
and in this hour of darkness
All the ones i've loved are gone
They ran away from something
But I just can't see what's wrong

The lives that slip on by me take a turn for the worst
My friends call me an asshole, while my family calls me cursed
And in my paranoia, I just push away the blame
And if I try to fake it, It'll just end all the same

Blinded by the absence of my fatal wish for glory
Sitting here upon my throne, no chance to say I'm sorry
Apologize for all the lies and anger that i've made
But watch me cross my fingers to all the dreams that i've betrayed

Tired at the world, I shake my fist to set me free
But in my house of mirrors, my reflections all I see
I never see the promise, just the faults that cause me rage
So batter me inside my head, inside my rusty cage

Fuck the world and all it's promise
God, I wish I wasn't on it
Not my fault that all this misery
Is all I have to show
If I think of what is missing
I'll Give my cries another listen
'Cause it's getting old
Or So I'm told

Fuck the world and all it's promise
God, I wish I wasn't on it
Not my fault that all this misery
Is all I have to show
If I think of what is missing
I'll Give my cries another listen
'Cause it's getting old
Or So I'm told
