Track Name: The Wilderness of Almost Was and Never Were
What happened to the kids who got lost in the blur?
The wilderness of almost was and never were.
We used to plan, we used to scheme,
We used to curse the old regime,
What did you surrender. for legal tender,
Was your price more than your dream?

When they come for you to sell out
Just promise to put up a fight,
And realize you’ll never be so close as you are tonight.

Drowning in your memory and you'll drown right in your hurt.
The wilderness of almost was and never were.
We used to fight and get wound up,
We were gonna light the whole world up.
Do you remember why you surrendered
Did you get that damn closeup?

When they come for you to sell out
Just promise to put up a fight,
And realize you’ll never be so close as you are tonight.
When they come for you to sell out
Just promise to put up a fight,
And realize you’ll never be so close as you are tonight.

Drink to the memory,
this is your eulogy.
For you became the enemy,
of our forgotten army.
I fought for your soul,
In a war with no heroes.
We fell so long ago,
On a battlefield no one knows,
to end up just a banquet for the crows.

When they come for you to sell out
Just promise to put up a fight,
And realize you’ll never be so close as you are tonight.
When they come for you to sell out
Just promise to put up a fight,
And realize you’ll never be so close as you are tonight.
Track Name: Shadow
How sick do you need to be?
How far down you have to go?
How cruel do you want to seem?
Before the bottom is too low.

Because when you hit,
you’ll hit until it hurts.
You’ll bleed until you’re empty,
you’ll struggle and you’ll curse,
against your fragility.

All the King's horses, all the King's men,
cannot break your fall,
you’re just a shadow on the wall.
Can your soul be born again?
Until your demons let you go,
you’re just the shadow of who I used to know.

Do you remember the curtain close,
or the ending of the joke?
Do you remember remember clutching my throat,
the moment your conscience broke.
How about the downward spiral,
or the years of denial?
Do you remember every time.
you promised not another time?

Because when you hit,
you’ll hit until it hurts.
You’ll bleed until you’re empty,
you’ll struggle and you’ll curse,
against your fragility.

All the King's horses, all the King's men,
cannot break your fall,
you’re just a shadow on the wall.
Can your soul be born again?
Until your demons let you go,
you’re just the shadow of who I used to know.

Every promise that you break,
And every plea that you ignore,
I look but I don't see you anymore.

The darkness that you drank,
Hollowed out your core,
I look but I don't see you anymore.

Hold on to the ghost ,
Of anyone left at all,
I look but it’s just shadows on the wall.

Strangled in blackness,
and drowned in ethanol,
I look but it's just shadows on the wall.
Track Name: Sulfur
It was the sulfur,
it was the brimstone
it was the night.
It was the blackness,
it was the madness,
when you lost your sight.

There are moments that matter,
there are fixed points in time,
and what you do right here,
will be with you to the end of your life.

Be careful what you burn,
and all you’ll taste is the sulfur
of how right you thought you were.
Be careful what you burn,
and all you’ll taste is the sulfur
of how right you thought you were.

There are moments that matter,
there are fixed points in time,
and what you do right here,
will be with you to the end of your life.

Be careful what you burn,
and all you’ll taste is the sulfur
of how right you thought you were.
Be careful what you burn,
and all you’ll taste is the sulfur
of how right you thought you were.

It was the sulfur.
it was the anger.
it was the wrath.
It was the vengeance,
the lack of penance,
you strayed from the path.
