Track Name: Bloodline
You're my blood, but now a days seems like poison running through my veins.
Spent my whole like stuck in the middle.
Sitting on the outside going through contemplation.
For eight years we've been pushing for restoration.
Please stop tearing at the foundation.
We'll never talk again, stop asking me how our mom has been.
We fell away from each other, hard to consider you my brother.

(Chorus) My body aches to the bone.
Over what I've been told.
Please let me go home.
I'm so sick of your tone.
This was a terrible mistake.
Now I'm wiping the slate.
Start cutting the chain(s).
Leave the anchor at bay.

I've watched this pan out in a hundred different ways.
Not one of them can support all the baggage we carry.
Miss the cold breeze through my hair, running wild for anywhere.
I see the man you are and it makes me scared.
We'll never talk again, stop asking me how our mom has been.
We fell away from each other, hard to consider you my brother.

(Chorus)

Here in this arid place, my mind still keeps the space.
Eats away at me every day, but somehow I need to stay.
How can the best things bring out the worst in us.
Where my flaws were in my heart your’s was in trust.
I took the way home, you took the frayed road.

(Chorus)

Holding down for the home I love.
Even though we know I've had enough.
Head in the clouds where my mind is free.
Feet still glued to the concrete. (×2)

I can't take this cycle (Ashamed of my bloodline) (x3)
Track Name: False Idol
Blind from the lies you spit.

Can't say that it's better this way.
I waited so long just for this to fade.
And now you're really fighting to breath.
Your poison is killing me.
This could be the end.

Blind from the lies you spit.
You can't stay bitter when you're the one who quit.
Looking back I'm so relieved, things are starting to look up for me.
I want you to know. I'm not falling for your show.

You're the one that started this, now I see your composure start to slip.
The curtains are coming down.
Make sure you stand your ground. (x2)

Turn your back.
There is no easy way out.
Speak from your heart.
Don't live just for yourself.
We'll keep moving forward.
A False Idol with nothing to show.

We've been through so much in this past year.
Shed our own blood, and wiped our tears.
These words spill from my heart.
But this is only just the start.

You speak in your tongue, it never meant anything to me.
You twist all your words, in hopes for apathy. (GET UP)
Gotta find a way, gotta find a way to carry all this weight.
Funny how I saw, funny how I saw your facade start to break.

Blind from the lies you spit. (x2)

Can't stay bitter when you're the one who quit.
Looking back I'm so relieved, Things are starting to look up for me.
I want you to know. I'm not falling for your show. (YEAH)
Track Name: With Haste
Opening a brand new door. Time to pull myself off the floor.
I already had one chance. So I can't let this one slip.

Screaming at the top of my lungs.
My voice is neglected, broken.
I'm giving it all I got. This could be my last shot.

Cut away, Cut away all the weight,
and just breathe for a second.
Cut away, Cut away all the weight (I'm cutting all the weight)

Get away, get away, away from me.
Get away, get away, away from me.
Get away, get away, get away.

(Chorus) I’ve tried my best in this, but what I've seemed to miss.
Were the lessons covered up in my own dark abyss.
Take me away to the safest place in state.
It's time to change my fate. Cause I'd rather fail than disgrace.

I hope to be the man I want. Taught from my mother's love.
Take the path you choose. Not the one raffled off for you.

With every single drop of ink. On the paper where my heart can speak.
I mean what I say. I guess it doesn't matter anyway

Cut away, Cut away all the weight,
and just breathe for a second.
Cut away, Cut away all the weight.

Tread with haste. Choose your fate.

(Chorus)

Time to open my eyes to what's in front of me.
The ones who stuck around and always kept their side by me.
We'll keep on moving til we make it home.
My heart will stay, but the rest will tread with me.

Power counts for what it's worth but loyalty always comes first.
Track Name: Bragging Rights
You have a closed mind, I knew it from the start.
A bombshell taking casualties with her legs spread apart.
You don't deserve the recognition of being a fake.
This was your choice and my mistake.

(Chorus) You left me with the thought, I'm to blame for this.
The lies came digging up, tables turned on you.
It won't be easy to forget. But you didn't make it much
harder.

Manipulation was your greatest feat.
Hypocrisy leaks out your fucking teeth.
My mind's clouded with red.
Cause you found comfort in another man's bed.
Hesitant to the thought. Of why it's your love that I sought.

String me along again.
Then jump ship while I'm sinking.

(Chorus)

You wonder why I'm in dismay.
My mother would be ashamed to see me chain smoking my problems away. (x2)

While I was preoccupied by false love.
You were too busy sniffing your drugs (x2)
Track Name: Tierra Buena
My worst fear is time passing me by. I tried so hard to keep it all inside.
And now I know I need to quit this fight. Before it fries my mind.

Let me feel, Let me feel the desert heat. And the cracked pavement beneath my feet.

(Chorus) No matter where I roam, I’ll call this place home.
It hasn’t been the best. But I’m conditioned to the toll.

My eyes portray the places that I’ve gone. My hands bear the scars of what I’ve done.
My mouth dry from the stories I drone. All of this is evidence to where I belong.

The valley that I come from musked with dust and must mistrust.
The hypnos of the dry wind, always seems to pull me back in.
They say home is what you make it. But how can I cherish, what’s been taken.

(Chorus)

Late nights in my car, home to the making of this song.
Marconi seemed the place to be, thoughts alone to dwell in the drink.
The one place where I find home, are in the words that I’ve wrote.
This is where I take my form, so much more lonely in my room.
Save my energy for the path, holding back all that I have.
Before I’m home I swear, I’ll scream till my throat tears.
Let me feel, Let me feel the desert heat. And the cracked pavement beneath my feet.

They say home is what you make it. But how can I cherish, what’s been taken.

(Chorus)

We don’t choose our starting point, We only progress from there.
I’m done being silent, pick yourself up, it’s the moment of truth.

Choose to live your life.
