Track Name: Red Flag
the freedom you forfeit
the damage that runs deep
the freedom you forfeit
piled high on the ash heap

you've been playing their game
invested in the way they say your name
ruled only by the looks they throw your way
don't you see what's wrong here?
giving up these parts of your own self
in exchange for a seat high up on the shelf

you're saying nothing's wrong
but everything's on fire
do you see the red flags? do you see them?
can you really say you're honest with yourself?
do you see the red flags? do you see them?

the more i explain the less you hear
no help can come through when the fire's so near
everything's wrong, everything's wrong
the more i explain the less you hear
everything will burn before we rebuild
everything's wrong, everything's wrong

you're saying nothing's wrong
but everything's on fire
do you see the red flags? do you see them?
can you really say you're honest with yourself?
do you see the red flags? do you see them?

haven't you noticed that everything is burning? it's burning
haven't you noticed that everything's on fire? it's on fire
Track Name: No Progress, No Reward
i lost my faith in everything again
i cannot fake my energy again
everything is going backwards
going so long without it
taking time ain't wasting time
i see through it, i push through it
i won't be tried again

this is a calling for another chance to redeem myself
this opportunity won't be so wasted
and i alone will listen to myself

not gonna waste my time again
i will move on - no progress, no reward
i see through it, i push through it
i won't be tried again

this is a calling for another chance to redeem myself
this opportunity won't be so wasted
and i alone will listen to myself
Track Name: Choice
you think i'm making this up? i can truly see why
a whole world against you... yes it has to be a lie
well i know its not fun to feel this pain in your chest
but its just easier than engaging in distress

the real severity of this deep injury
shut down your vision, this is our decision
turn down your voice, this is our choice
proceed with caution, it is the only option

with your hands over your eyes, you can't really expect
to be right as rain when filled with such neglect
controlling everything when its not even yours
well it's so much easier than engaging in distress

the real severity of this deep injury
shut down your vision, this is our decision
turn down your voice, this is our choice
proceed with caution, this is the only option

get out of my insides! let me control my fate!
Track Name: Siren
she spoke so calm
she spoke so clear
a siren drawing near
i'm startled by the sound
this facade is caving in
i see my every sin

one endures the day to day
this constant cosplay
every nod met with a smile
never complain, never explain

tugged collar hiding a bruise
a life you didn't choose
you did this to survive
everyday you face criticism as though you didn't even try

one endures the day to day
this constant cosplay
every nod met with a smile
never complain, never explain

exposure creeps in my lungs
i can't complain, i can't explain
square peg, round hole, this exhausting test
i can't complain, i can't explain
Track Name: Animal
enjoying the concept more than the reality
even if it leaves you battered and bruised
what good is vengeance when no one is innocent

never really cared about it, did you?
its painfully obvious, i just can't let go

seeing that its all an act
just a facade
reaching back into the past
i can't move on
i'm just an animal

this is gonna take so long to fix
i'm not sure it's possible
its so hard to erase whats already been written
its easier to just start fresh
but who are we kidding
we don't really don't really know the extent of the damage
is it all too late?

never again

why won't you witness
my own forgiveness
Track Name: Fake
you criticize everything i ever did or tried
tore me down when you could, and i knew that you would
am i out of reach yet?
from your puncture and the venom when i wanted you on my side

the hardest lesson learned is this one

am i better? am i any wiser?
we came from the same place, do we have the same fate?
am i separate? am i different?
taking it day by day

now that I'm past your scope
you've given me all of your hope,
since it's so easy to do when you're not so desperately needed
it must be exhausting, being so fake
what does it take, what does it take to script every word, every move, every lie?

the hardest lesson learned is this one

am i better? am i any wiser?
we came from the same place, do we have the same fate?
am i separate? am i different?
taking it day by day

did you mean it like that?
forceful and misplaced?
or did you say it wrong? you said it wrong, with hate so strong
i didn't mean to take it all right down to my name
it's the world to blame, the world's to blame, not me and mine, me and mine

you'll never know how hard it is just to know how hard it is
Track Name: Nova
FYI there are no words here but thanks for checking you're cool
Track Name: Enemy
if you're backed into a corner, then why aren't you fighting?
if you've given up your judgement then what's the difference?
we've been raised and groomed a certain way
taught us all to hate
it's hard to change an instinct so ingrained, our own worst enemy

this is me finally speaking up to be heard
and my fist clenching this broken blinder from my eyes
i'm never going back
i'm never going

if you're angry and you don't know why, that's not the problem
if you're only just now questioning, why are you wasting time?
its not our fault, the one who blocks way, she has my face
it's hard to change an instinct so ingrained, our own worst enemy

this is me finally speaking up to be heard
and my fist clenching this broken blinder from my eyes
i'm never going back
i'm never going

ENEMY

the hardest part of becoming self aware
you've crossed that line
and they began to care
this is being called to attention
it seems small, but it's worth the mention

and i hope for differences and changes in the patterns i'm perceiving within
and i still will have that knee-jerk feeling sometimes, even though i know whats right and real
and i am reaching out with everything i have
please listen, please consider, please hear me out
cause we are many, and we are strong
we will be loud, paying attention, going to start screaming whats wrong

don't go back, won't go back
