Track Name: Collider
My life that I planned out has now betrayed me
Crawling on broken glass
Swallowed by the dark
Savour these moments, moments of clarity
Blinded for far too long
Swallowed by the dark

There is no hope in a life created through callousness
Throw away everything
This is the end of my former self

I'm falling
I take my time to finally notice your face
I'm falling
I realise this world beneath me restores my grace

The perfect life that suffers from a lack of innocence
"Open your eyes," she said. "You're choking on the fear."
So long for waiting in fear, I see my destiny

Falling into myself

You're not meant to be alone
I'm falling
I'm sorry
Track Name: RRR (feat. Sora Nicholls of Materials)
Can you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders?
Can you see the hate in the words that you've stolen?

How could you ever forget you're the one?
How could you think that it's done?
There's no release
There's no relief
There's no reprieve

Why did you let this pain pull you down?
Drowning without a sound
There's no release
There's no relief
There's no reprieve

This world around me
Is falling apart into a ocean of sadness
The greed, the feeling of being used
I'm so sick of the, the way we treat each other
Mistakes our lives are tragic
I'm so sick of the, the way we think we're worthless
We are not alone

Sometimes I just wish we were bolder
We took a risk for our future
Track Name: My Despair
Lately I've been focussed on my sin
Wake up to this bitter hopelessness

I know if I had a saviour
Then this wouldn't matter
To live in completion
I wish that I could forget
There is no hope for me

Save your confessions
'Cause they won't be answered
A call for a new day
I wish that I could forget
There is no hope for me

I've made my mistakes, I live in fear
I found freedom inside my own despair

Surrender yourselves
Surrounded by the master of my demise
Surrounded by reflections of myself
If I had it all worked out then tell me why I'm here again
If I had it all worked out then tell me if this is the end

I know where we've been before
I know who we're fighting for
Track Name: Defeated
You're defeated it's gone too far
Do you know what we're fighting for?
Take my hand it's not too far
Do you know what we're fighting for?

Remember these steps that you have taken with me?
They have been tainted by a lack of self control
How did we come this far?
Without falling straight into the deepest waters below

I see the truth beneath the fold
Can you believe what we're dying for?
We're burning all the bridges down
And fighting 'til the end
I know you said you wanted to

I never thought you're the one
Who would become my enemy
I never thought you're the one
Who would become my fear
Take back everything you said
Why won't you ever listen?
Track Name: Titan
Take what you need to
I'm not waiting for you
I need something more
I want something more
A far cry from anything that I thought I'd see
Will I find anything that I want to be?

Righteousness and love have gone astray
We just sold our souls
We are lost
Save yourselves and learn to disobey
These decaying gods
We are lost

Now we've taken everything
Broken wings, we aren't angels just a plague
Find the spaces in between
Learn to live
Learn to love
Learn to crawl before you can run

I'm looking down on everything
Finding the truth between the lies
I'm drowning more than we can see
Trying to come up for air

We can change our broken ways
We can change there's better days to come
