Track Name: Innocence Dies First
You can't hide it forever
We already know
The secret will tear you apart

Struggling to breathe, your head washed beneath the swell
I could save you, but you would only pull me down

The only way out, to set yourself free
Cut away the ropes that hold you safe, take a fall to the bottom
And learn what it's like to truly hate
You will never see the light of day again

This time is the last
I won't trust again
Tell one more lie and I'll tear out your tongue
No more filthy words (x3)

You could hide all these lies, that you pushed aside
But soon they will eat away at you, from the inside

And you will learn what it's like to truly hate
You will never see the light of day again

No more fucking lies
No more fucking lies
Track Name: Trapped
Confined.

In a place like no other
Trapped behind the highest walls
Stuck in a never-relenting labyrinth
To be stuck in one's mind
To be stuck in one's mind
Powerless, yet empowered
We can't control the thoughts

I've fought so hard through this hell
For you to only break me down
But I'll never enslave myself to you
This dream will always be mine (x2)

Tormented, with a broken mind
I watch the others as they fall like flies
Watching them tear themselves apart (x2)

I've fought so hard through this hell
For you to only break me down
But I'll never enslave myself to you
This dream will always be mine (x2)

And though you feed off my mistakes, you will surely starve.

Never again disheartened
I need to find my way alone
Track Name: Legacy
Why am I left walking in your shadow?
Haunted by your actions, they call me by your name
How am I supposed to feel?
How am I supposed to live?

Fuck you

Why are you so afraid to live up to your father's legacy?
He left you nothing but broken bones and burnt out bridges
Nothing to inherit but a shadow that looms over your name
You left a rotten legacy
One I refuse to live up to
I want to choose my own path, but I live my life on my own terms

Left in search from my own misery
I'm still blind and I'm dying
Walking toward what little light I still manage to see

You were the judge, jury and executioner
Now I am left to hang
With your mistakes by my side
And look of betrayal
In my eye

You sit upon your coward's throne
Polishing your broken crown
You hold it close to your chest
In place of your heart
The judgement you have cast has come to collect
It's left me hanging by my neck

You were the judge, jury and executioner
Now I am left to hang
With your mistakes by my side
And look of betrayal
In my eye

Was it enough to control my life, before my life began?
What is enough to control my life?
Before my life even fucking began?
