Track Name: Portraits
"Portraits" Lyrics:

"Never go back to the start.

I'll never go back to what I used to be,
The life I did not want to lead,
Living so blind to that which I did not want to see.
But now I've learned to be stronger within myself.
And I won't lose, I won't falter,
I will prevail.

Portraits in glass to shatter,
Scattered shards underneath the water.
Now I reach higher,
And I tell you,
That nothing makes me stronger.

I never told you how I really feel.

I never told you how I really felt about your selfish ways,
Your arrogance, the consequence,
All leading to my dismay.
I will never give into this weakness again.
I will not lose, I won't falter,
I will prevail.

Portraits in glass to shatter,
Scattered shards underneath the water.
Now I reach higher,
And I tell you,
Nothing makes me stronger.

The image that you paint is false.
We are buried alive in the lies that you keep.
I'll reveal the truth, and the truth shall set you free.

You're words mean nothing, and they only make me stronger.

Portraits in glass to shatter,
Scattered shards underneath the water.
Disgrace to liars,
And I tell you,
That nothing makes us stronger.
We've never been stronger.

Change is inevitable,
Accept that fact,
We all move on.

Accept what has been done,
We all move on.
Track Name: Arrogant
"Arrogant" Lyrics:

"The time is now, I'm putting my foot down,
For what feels like the first time,
I will not just lay down and take this,
There's just one thing you need to hear first.

You're arrogant.
Your actions will define your punishment.
Don't forget the sacrament,
The pestilence of your ignorance,
Your rapture is imminent.

Nobody asked you for your fucking opinion,
So keep your mouth shut, keep your thoughts to yourself.
So sick and tired of being disrespected,
Don't worry your actions will be circumvented.

There was a boy just like you or me,
A boy who tried his best to chase his dreams.
Nobody taught him about peace or love,
He grew up cold, he grew up tired,
He died alone.

He was despised and rejected of men,
A man of sorrows, acquainted by grief.
Let go of the anger,
This is the key to living a better life.

This is how we live our lives,
No second chances, don't take this for granted.
I don't want to count the days.

Things are not as bad as they seem,
Our demons are what we make them,
Our imperfections won't haunt us anymore.

Nobody asked you for your fucking opinion,
Just keep your mouth shut, keep your thoughts to yourself.
I have never been so disrespected,
This is the key to living a better life.

This is how we live our lives
No second chances, don't take this for granted.
I don't want to count the days.

This is how we live our lives,
No second chances,
I don't want to count the days,
Don't take them for granted"
Track Name: Forsaken
"Forsaken" Lyrics:

"I am the forsaken one.

I had been set adrift for so very long,
Fading with the tides under a dying sun.
Blind have I been to that which surrounds me,
Such vivid color, and such divine beauty.

Negativity has dragged me down,
So far that i nearly drowned.
Reveal what I was to stubborn to see,
I will never let uncertainty define me.

Just let go

Fantasy, the ecstasy you left me with.
Finally, I can see, enlighten me.

Make your choice,
Familiarity or freedom.
Toxic people, who's to say that we need them?
We don't need them.
I've been stepped on for the last time.

For all the times that you picked me last,
Bittersweet memories of the past.
For every chance I failed to take,
But I will learn from my mistakes.
Drag me down until there's nothing left.
I'll help to find the truth behind what I thought was real,
Embrace these scars that will never heal.

Negativity, don't bring me down,
So far,
Can you hear the sound?
Reveal what we were just to stubborn to see,
I will never let uncertainty define me.

Fantasy, the ecstasy you left me with.
Finally, I can see, enlighten me.

My eyes are growing weary,
I can see through your facade.
Suspended in time,
I feel you slipping away.
The sun is setting over a paradise now lost.
But still you lay under my feet,
And through this sorrow I found myself.

Fantasy, the ecstasy you left me with.
Finally, I can see, enlighten me.
