  • 03:50 Lyrics Punish

    VERSE

    I don't need you
    Lies I see through

    You made me, with your lies
    All your failures, all your tries

    CHORUS

    So take away all that I have
    I am tired of your demands
    Never reaching out to me
    Well, I don't need your sympathy

    VERSE

    I can't bear this
    Lost and hopeless

    Look at me, realize
    I have become what you despise

    BRIDGE

    The hate you feel won't go away

  • 04:23 Lyrics Nothing

    VERSE

    I watch you sell yourself away
    I see you keep yourself at bay
    And I have nothing left to say to you

    Yesterday just out of reach
    Our thoughts, our dreams all turn to bittersweet
    And I have nothing left to teach to you

    PRE-CHORUS

    Don't you leave me here
    Then I watch you disappear
    Well I have nothing left to hold near

    CHORUS

    Give me something to believe
    Cut me open, watch me bleed
    Drain me until I'm empty
    Leave this as a memory

    VERSE

    I see you sleep inside the womb
    I watch the tides obey the moon
    And I have nothing left to prove to you

    I see you try to find yourself
    Give that away to someone else
    And I have nothing of myself for you

  • 05:31 Lyrics Bitter To You

    VERSE

    I lost my way
    I can't escape
    Is it supposed to be this way?
    Useless, ashamed
    Makes me feel this way, and I do

    CHORUS

    Bitter to you
    I feel
    Bitter to you

    VERSE

    I can't reach you
    I can't get through
    Is it supposed to be this way?
    Fake and confused
    Makes me feel this way, and I do

    BRIDGE

    I crawl under you
    I fall under you
    It's all under you
    It's all under you

  • 03:45 Lyrics Expectorate

    VERSE

    Never had the time for me
    Close the door right in my face
    Pardon me if I don't grieve
    The things in me that you erased

    PRE-CHORUS

    Can't find anything to cope
    I'm an abject misathrope

    CHORUS

    I can feel this slip away
    Doesn't matter what you say
    I hear you expectorate
    My name with all of your hate
    You taught this to me
    Hate all that I see
    Slave to memory, my fate

    VERSE

    Pretending like you'll leave me be
    Then drag me back to take some more
    Forgive this lack of sympathy
    Now your turn to be ignored

     

  • 04:39 Lyrics Left

    VERSE

    It's never good enough
    It's never good enough
    I won't try anymore
    It's not worth what I'm reaching for

    PRE-CHORUS
    And I wanted to believe in what you said
    As I choke on all the lies I'm fed

    CHORUS
    Left behind, and nothing I can feel
    Now resigned, I don't care what you steal
    Now we find the things that you conceal
    Is this real

    VERSE
    I can't fake this anymore
    I can't fake this anymore
    All these things I try to hide
    Something gone away inside

     

  • 04:06 Lyrics Throwaway

    VERSE

    You look at me, you want to say
    I'm sorry
    Should I forget so easily
    You've scarred me

    CHORUS

    And thanks to you, I've found a way
    Torturing myself every day
    You'd reconcile, but it's too late
    All that I love just turns to hate

    VERSE

    You've always thought I needed you
    You're so wrong
    Pretending all your lies were true
    For so long

    BRIDGE

    And thanks to you, I'm stronger now
    I'd like to change, I don't know how
    Brought me down to feel this way
    I wish this would just go away

  • 03:39 Lyrics Piteous

    VERSE

    It's piteous, that I should need
    It's hideous, the way you think
    And between us, there is nothing
    And you're above even caring

    CHORUS

    All the things you saw in me are withering
    And I can't say that I'm past remembering
    All the plans you had for me have all gone wrong
    Turn your back on me because I don't belong

    VERSE

    This disgust is filling me
    I've had enough of these feelings
    It's serious - you're denying
    And all my trust is receding

  • 04:56 Lyrics Desired

    VERSE

    Leave me here finding words to say
    Watching the passion die away
    Don't tell me how this has to end
    Put rest to all that you pretend

    CHORUS

    And then I find your face behind my eyes
    I look inside, discover what has died
    I live a lie built by my own design
    I'll crucify a place for your denials

    VERSE

    I've found I have no place to go
    I feel myself crawl down that hole
    And now this all seems bittersweet
    You watch me die when our eyes meet

  • 03:31 Lyrics Denied

    VERSE

    Nothing left to keep us warm
    The salt still lines your eyes
    Searching feelings unexplored
    And all that we've denied

    CHORUS

    Denied, is there anything inside?
    Resigned, will we fail at all our tries?

    VERSE

    Trepidation on your wings
    You're changing your disguise
    Passions act as god's playthings
    And all our sins denied

    BRIDGE

    Hesitate, lingering
    But you're above all of these things
    Are you proud of yourself now?

  • 03:48 Lyrics Deeper Than I Thought

    VERSE

    Let you inside
    I've seen your lies before
    Unsatisfied
    Hazy, dim metaphor

    PRE-CHORUS

    I'm finding a way
    Losing face

    CHORUS

    I am deeper than I thought
    This must be the cost I pay to see
    Everything so clear

    VERSE

    Look through dull eyes
    Sad, it's past your control
    Uncompromised
    I can't let some things go

     

  • 05:24 Lyrics Afterthought

    VERSE

    I don't want to feel this way
    Every day, it's all the same
    Smile but you forgot my name - what's new?

    I just wanted to belong
    But everything I did was wrong
    Tolerate, but not for long from you

    CHORUS

    I'm not worth your afterthought
    I'm ashamed of what I'm not

    VERSE

    So finally everything exposed
    So finally, and then she reposed
    So tell me, what am I supposed to do?
    All the changes that you missed
    You want my feigned innocence
    All that was and all that is, untrue

    BRIDGE

    Prove to me, that I still need
    Tell me what you see
