Track Name: Mirror Image
A reverend is knocking at my door
He's trying to tell me about the lord
Help guide this vessel through a storm
But my spirit is broken and worn

Because everything I have will go away
Like the light at the end of the day
Nothing stays the same
My body will decay
In an unmarked grave
That I've made

The devil, he sits by my side
While I sleep he sings me lullabies
Because I know when I die
I'll be swimming in a lake of fire

Because everything I have will go away
Like the light at the end of the day
Nothing stays the same
My body will decay
In an unmarked grave
That I have made
From the ashes I cremate
I see every person I've betrayed

The devil he sits by my side

Because everything I have will go away
Like the light at the end of the day
Nothing stays the same
My body will decay
In an unmarked grave
That I have made
From the ashes I cremate
I see every person I've betrayed

When I look at myself
When I look at myself
I don't like what is there
When I look at myself
When I look at myself
An empty face in the mirror

I haven't been a perfect person
At times I didn't even try
I often sit and wonder what the fuck is wrong with my mind

What's wrong with my mind?
Track Name: Seas of Change
Am I doomed
To a life of searching
For answers to questions I never asked
Or is this a meaningless sense of regret
There was always someone to lead the way
But no longer am I following
I have control of my fate

And it scares me to death
But still this world I will try and cleanse
And I don't care what stands in my way
I'll fight the good fight until the day I die
And no one can stop me

No on can fucking stop me

So light the fuse and burn it all way
We'll watch these ashes fade
Into the eternal seas of change
Then I'll sail away
From the burdens of yesterday
And I won't look at the world the same
Because there is so much possibility

This melody flows through my veins
And I feel alive for the first time since the downfall
Because the past is in the past
And that is where it shall stay
Because I am never fucking looking back

So I fall to my knees to pray
But is God even listening
Does he even care
Or am I chanting to the sky
Only to hear a reply
Of sweet despair
Track Name: Going Home
Why do I always run away in the face of rejection?
Maybe I'm just a coward losing all direction
Over and over again this year and a half plays out
There might be some good memories but most I'd rather just forget about

I'm on my way
I am going home
But I want to stay
Out on this open road

You were the one who made me laugh again
And I thought you would be the one to save me from my sins
But you said goodbye
And I know you don't care
Your stare changed, your smile left, I hope you don't forget
You said you would love me at my darkest
Guess what, I'm right there

I'm on my way
I am going home
But I want to stay
Out on this open road

I stood by your side
While you ached in pain
But your cold shoulder is the only place
You'd let me rest my head
When I was so afraid
And I knew we were going separate ways
Track Name: Losing a Whole Year (Third Eye Blind Cover)
I remember you and me use to spend the whole goddamn day in bed
Hiding in your room we'd lay like dogs and the phone would ring like a joke you left unsaid

I took your stuff put them in the basement
When I found out what the smile on your face meant
I see you pop that check
Craning your neck at my car wreck
Now your stuck with the tube
A sink full of dishes and some aqualube
If it's not the defense then you're on the attack
When you start talking I hear the Prozac
When you were yourself, it tasted sweet
But it sours into a routine deceit
This drama's a bore
And I don't want to play no more

I remember you and me use to spend the whole goddamn day in bed
Lying in your room we'd lay like dogs and the phone would ring like a joke you left unsaid
Now I realize that you never heard one goddamn word I ever said
(Losing a whole year)
Track Name: Rust
A rust filled Saturday of needless pain
Left begging on the floor
Dignity, all that I had left
Just went walking out the door
All alone I filter through my thoughts
Hoping to find more
But brick walls built out of all my faults
Block the way to the right words

So I'll say goodbye and good luck
And wrap myself in the crutch

Minutes pass with every second guess
These four walls closing in
A broken heart filling empty veins
With sorrow and sin
So I close my eyes as my vision blurs
And sink into the sound
Of this one breath as it fills my lungs
To force these last words out

"I hope you find what you want,
But don't look to me because I'll be gone.
The years will pass as seasons change,
And you'll be just another memory."

I'll say goodbye and good luck
And wrap myself in this crutch
