Skeletons 01:48
I've lost friends, I've lost love. I've lost faith in your God above. Is this world cold? Is this world dead? I've buried my conscious beneath the skeletons. Beneath all the skeletons. Out at sea, out at sea. My soul has gone missing. I'm torn in between my pride and selflessness.

Backlash 04:12
Cut out that vipers tongue, before it bites backs. This will all come back around. This is a backlash You're always so quick to spit everything that comes to mind. Not knowing everything you say is what makes you blind. I will send you back from where you came, eating your own tail. How can you stomach the vile that comes out of you're mouth. I can see your throat swelling with every word you refuse to let out. Your pride is what you spit in my in face to burn out my eyes, but I don't need to see to know that you're a piece of shit. Cut out that vipers tongue, before it bites backs. This will all come back around. This is a backlash Can you walk around with bite marks on your face. Can you live with yourself with knowing how it taste. With every word you, tying that noose, constricting tighter and tighter. With every word, you hang yourself higher and higher. Even after death that tongue of yours still tries to fights back. You should have cut it out. Cut out that vipers tongue, before it bites backs. This will all come back around. This is a backlash You should have cut it out and swallow your words along with the blood. So cut out that vipers tongue and hang yourself high

Lost Hills 05:11
I feel like everything I do is never good enough for anyone. Have you ever felt that the world has it out for you and all you want to do is leave it all behind because you can't seem to get anything right. Failure may seem like an old friend that has overstayed it's welcome, but its not its fault that you don't know how to get back up. Don't place a blame when you're the one who needs to change. You are the one that keeps repeating the same mistakes over again. I'm just here to show you the way. There is always another way. I taught you everything you know, so what do you blame me for. I gave you the answer I gave you the truth and the only person to blame is you. Don't place a blame when you're the one who needs to change. You can call me a fuck up but I will get it right eventually, even if you don't believe in me. So here's to failure, to fuck ups and getting it wrong but we won't let that discourage us. We will keep moving on. Failure is something that I am all too familiar with and I hope it all works out in the end. But will I ever learn.

I'm sick if proving myself right about always being wrong. I used to only let down myself, but now it feels like I'm letting down everyone else. It's times like these where I want to return to being the ghost that I once was. I always find me having to destroy and rebuild myself, but I never reach for the hand that offers help. I feel myself growing darker, but there's a part of me that still holds on, that's tries to keep me from falling too far. I used to only let down myself, but now if feels like I'm letting down everyone else. It's getting harder to live up to the name I have bestowed on this. Am I a hypocrite, or am I just falling out of place. So pull the bolt from out of my mind and load another round. I need to blow these thoughts out the back of my head. I need the stop thinking like this. I'm getting tired of life and the way it works. I'm getting closer to hating myself, but I will not live this trend that it has seem to become. I getting sick of myself. I'm still trying to figure this out
