My nightmares haunt me still...
Track Name: The Fatalist
My nightmares haunt me still…

They bring back memories of those figures dressed in the sky, outside my window yelling “liar” and “manipulator”.

Every time I start to dream I wake up in a cold sweat.
You’d think I’d be used to it by now, but the pain is so inviting.

I’ll continue to build this hope back up, only to leave it at the bottom.

Change - it’s written everywhere.

I see that look in your eye. You’ll never believe, not as long as I'm alive.

It'd all be worth it just to see a smile on your face.
It'd all be worth it just to see a smile that doesn’t lie.

I’m going to make you proud. I just need to find the way.
Track Name: The Realist
One by one, in single file... One by one.

Here I was thinking that you'd be the life of the party, and instead I get the end of the world.

They’re saying it’ll be televised, and we’ll be drawn to the screens like wolves to a kill.

This isn’t fun; this is pointless.
The look on your face tells me more than your mouth ever will.

The world waits for no man.
Bring your knives to the table...

We’ll start digging our graves before the soundless dawn approaches.

One by one in single file we’ll follow each other into hell...
Track Name: The Nihilist
Take a breath
Close your eyes
Let the sun burn from beyond the tide
Track Name: The Apologist
What is this life?
What if it's meaningless?
Everything we build we burn to the ground, but we still reach for the stars, endlessly.
What is this life?
When will we see the end?

I want to look down on the world and watch it light up so bright it burns.
Watch it fade away to nothing.
Our dreams will die with us.
Nothing will last forever.

I wish I’d see you smile one last time before we all go up in flames.
Instead I’ll close my eyes and wait for the end to take me too.
I'm alone out here...

I’m alone.
I’m alone out here in the dark.
I’m alone out here.

This world is dead and so are we.
I’ll just wait here.
I'll wait for sleep to come...

I’ll just float here and wait for sleep to come…
