Track Name: Faded Away
Is this the beginning of a dream I have been giving up everything to have it all just fade away? My mind is always spinning. My decisions are deceiving, but in the end I can say I did my best to make a change.

I've lost friends along the way. I've been proud. I've been ashamed. I can't say I'm giving up if it all just fades away.

This has has always been apart of me for as long as I can remember. Every day that has gone by I will cherish forever. We're moving forward in this life. We push our challenges aside. May we never forget the good times and all the sleepless nights.

This may be our end, but it's not mine. Is this the beginning of a dream I have been giving up everything to have it all just fade away?

I've lost a lot of friends along the way. I've been proud. I've been ashamed. I can't say I'm giving up because it all just faded away.

This may be our end, but it's not mine.This may be our end, but it's not mine. And even though this is the end off the road, let life show us how far we can go. Stay strong. Know who you are and never lose hope.

And even though this is the end off the road, let life show us how far we can go. This is apart of me that I will remember and every moment I'll cherish forever.
Track Name: Illusions
My thoughts may differ from yours but we are all fighting for the same thing. Different beliefs should never make enemies. We should stand for who we are and never lose hope. This is the product of a vision I had lost long ago

And I can't stand to lose it again.

I don't know where I went wrong. The man who you see used to think I was strong. But i was so wrong. So innocent and blind. I thought I had a grasp on this long called life.

I thought I had a grasp on this long called life.

But I was so wrong and I can't do this alone (You're not alone)

I never thought I'd turn into the man you see, but I've struggling with the thought of what makes me me. This is not depression or an insecurity. Life just turned out different than I thought it would be.

That doesn't mean I'm wrong. I can still choose to be strong (Be strong). That doesn't mean I'm wrong. That doesn't mean I'm wrong.

This is who I am.

This is who I am. This is what I've become. This is who I am and this is what I've become. Can I live with who I am? Can I live with what I've I've become? Can you live with who I am? Can you live with what I've become? This is who I am.
Track Name: Deliverance
You deceiver. You liar. You think you're better than me. This cause is so much greater than you could ever be.

You will never own me. I will never let you bring me down (Bring me down). This is the start of a new beginning and I will stand my ground. Although your words sound tempting and the world is what promised me (What you promised me), I know you're just a coward and you'll be crushed underneath my feet.

You know nothing (You know nothing)
You have nothing (You have nothing)
You are nothing (You are nothing)
You hold no strength (No hold on me)

And now we carry hope in our hearts that this is a stand, a stand for something greater than ourselves. And as we walk down this narrow path, He will deliver us.

We're rising stronger and stronger everyday. We're fighting for the solution to all this pain. Overcoming any obstacle standing in our way. With hope held in my heart, I will never break.
Track Name: Falsifier
Growing older I've been growing colder, colder, colder to everyone that should make me be growing bolder.

I am almost ashamed. Not for the message. For the name. I am almost ashamed. Not for the message but for the name.

What was once held so highly to me with such respect and honor. What was once held so highly to me used with such selfish intent.

God is not a catalyst, a title, or just a thank you. He is a means of life, love, and true happiness. I can’t stand the sight of seeing what I want to be destroyed right in front of me. And I’m not saying I’m perfect, but I have not lost sight and I have not lost hope.

With every song I sing and every word I say, I will make sure I don’t end up like you (End up like you). With every song I sing and every word I say, I will not end up like you.

End up like you

Watching your heroes die again and again is getting old.

But once again, I will prove myself to be stronger then you. We all have our faults, but I will prove myself to be stronger than you. But once again, I will prove myself to be stronger then you. We all have our faults, but I will prove myself to be stronger, stronger, stronger than you.
Track Name: I am Ashamed
Running from the answers, I'm scared of the truth. I'm trapped in life and it's not bound by youth.

Falling short of the goal to please very one. I do my best. Give 100% and get criticized for every mistake I let slip throughout the cracks. I'm under attack. Just one more thing could buckle and break my back My back)

Does no one see me trying (Trying and trying)? Are you blind to what I see? I thought I would be something. I'm disappointed in me.

I won't let you in. I won't let this win over me (Win over me). I can't let you in. I can't let this win over me.

I slipped through the cracks (Slipped through the cracks). I'm breaking my back (I'm breaking my back). I'm counting days. They're all the same. Why must I feel so ashamed?

I thought I would be something. I'm disappointed in me. I wish i was someone else cause I'm ashamed of myself. There is only one thing that can save me. You are the only thing that can save me. Save me God.
Track Name: Lost
I'm so lost. Please guide me home.

Homeward
Track Name: Homeward
This destination. My motivation to find my way. As I come close, what I fear most is misery waiting at my door step, but I’ve done all I can, and if there's one thing I know, there's always someone who loves you that’s not far from home.

But where there’s love there’s also hate. How can there be joy where sadness rains? I'll push harder, I'll move farther until I’m far enough away, but in the end I'll know I’m wrong, and every second I am gone I’ll know where I belong.

I'll know where I belong.

But I’m searching for that place, an existence of complacency. These thoughts cloud my mind. Darkness overcasts my light. I’ll break this hold you have on me is what we all say.

Is what we all say.

We try so hard to escape, but instead what if we embrace this place that’s made us who we are. And some are afraid to call it home, but I have made this place my own. It’s not where we are, but who we are, and how we got there is home.

But when I watch the sunrise over that mountain top, I remember who I am, and what that place has made me. I must find my way back. Thoughts of negativity, and insecurity depart from me.

Depart from me

We try so hard to escape, but instead what if we embrace this place that’s made us who we are. And some are afraid to call it home, but I have made this place my own. It’s not where we are, but who we are, and how we got there is home.

And I know misery is not far from home, but I regret every second I am gone. My eyes are facing homeward.
Track Name: Burning Bridges
Every word you say, they all just start to blend. You are nothing more than a fictitious friend. You claw and bite and gasp for air just for memories sake, but you are nothing more than just another fake.

Ruled by the choices you make. You're just another fake. Ruled by the choices you make.

It doesn't change. You still remain here with nothing left. Now hear these words I have to get off my chest. I promise you you'll end up cold and blew unless you make a change. It's your fault. No one else. You're the one to blame.

Every word you say, they all just start to blend. You are nothing more than a fictitious friend. You claw and bite and gasp for air just for memories sake, but you are nothing more than just another fake.
Track Name: Jordan Willis
I became unstable in all the anger and pain. I remember praying for God to heal and praying to take you away. It was difficult to watch you struggle, to feel helpless, and know there was nothing I could do.

I wish I could understand what was going on inside your head. You affected every part of me and not a single word was said. When we were young, we were a family. You were my brother. It was hard to see your life in the hands of another. I'm sorry I wasn't there and now you're gone.

I'm happy the burden of life is no longer a hold on you. You're safe and sound and I have found a part of me I never knew. I don't have all the answers why you we're the way you were, but I'm happy to call you family even in my struggle.

I'm sorry I wasn't there for you and now you're gone. You're my family. You're my brother, a part of me that will live on. I'm happy the burden of life is no longer a hold on you. This goes without saying I love you.
