Track Name: Intro
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Leaving
We have used this place for what it’s worth
And now it’s time to leave
Knowledge gained, lessons learnt, we’re moving forward
And now we need to leave
We have used this place for what it’s worth
It’s time to leave
We have used this place for what it’s worth
We need to leave

Many reasons for wanting to leave
Many reasons for needing this

The pressure is building
The pressure is overwhelming me

I need to be set free
I need to leave
I need to be set free

I found my reasons for wanting to leave
I found my reasons for needing this

It’s suffocating
I can’t bare the weight of it all

I am leaving and looking back
Gone for good and never turning back
Track Name: Home
Of course I loathe this town
And I can’t think of a better time to leave
And I will always have my home
I’ll always have that place to escape to
Our homes, our freedom
Our freedom from everyone else
A place we all have to escape to
A place we can call our home

Some days there’s no venturing to a destination
But to venture between our loved ones
And some days are gonna be better than others
At least I have somewhere to call my own
Back with our loved ones

Of course I hate this place
I’m glad our departure is inevitable

There are two kinds of people here
The ones that work to live
And there’s the ones that live to work
And that’s no way to fucking live
No happiness
No life
No happiness
No life

This mindset is forced upon us all
Their attitude smothers us day by day
This mindset is forced upon us all
Their attitude smothers us day by day
Day by day

I remind myself
My home will never leave me
Because I know deep down
My home will never leave me
Track Name: Creepers
With no rope you try and hold me down
I’m sick and tired of you trying to control
Get your own life and quit living mine
I’ve had to stop all these thoughts
They block out every memory of us
And now I am impervious to the pain

And I can’t see now and can’t breathe
With these walls surrounding me
With nothing to hold me back
I’m undoubtably free
And I just can’t see
I’m breaking down the walls around me
With nothing to hold me back
I’m undoubtably free

I'm a hollow structure
Wound me if you dare

No conscience
No fucking care
Memories are blank

No conscience
No fucking care
Memories are blank

I am left waiting
Now my back is turned
I am left hating
All of the doors left closed

I now know what this means
I am hollow

I now know what I am
I am hollow
Track Name: Transitions
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Disconnect
If I only I could bring myself to leave in peace
But I just don’t think I can
Oh how I wish there was an easier way
To disconnect from all of this

Let’s go back to the start
Because you clearly didn’t learn
The first time round
The message was so clear
Never learning, always thriving

To pursue your own self
Walking away and never letting go
But still you persist
You don’t even know this person
But yet you keep pushing him
One day he will snap
It never will be ok
Let’s go back to the start

Let’s go back to the start

Of course he trains to fight
That doesn’t make him a fighter
Well you should really learn
Overcome this desire to win
Because he walked away
He’s already beat you
Because he walked away
He’s already fucking beat you
Because he walked away
Because he walked away
He’s already beat you
He’s already fucking beat you

This was a time where disconnecting from our surroundings
Was oh so much easier
There was a time where disconnecting from our surroundings
Was oh so much easier
Track Name: Changes
What changes will occur from our departure
Will we fall or will we conquer
How will we benefit from this
Will we fall or will we conquer
How will we benefit from our departure

One thing lead to another
It’s all happening so fast
Yesterday it all meant nothing
And today it means everything
It all feels like a dream
It has always felt like a dream

Determination for a different destination
We decided on change
We create our own roads
And we make our own paths
WE DECIDE ON CHANGE!

An external adaption to our surroundings
Internally bound to no difference

This is what we have done
We are in this for the long run

This feels like a dream
This feels like a dream

We are in this for the long run
We are in this
We are in this

One thing lead to another
It’s all happening so fast
Yesterday it all meant nothing
And today it means everything
It all feels like a dream
It has always felt like a dream

This is physical to us and everything around me
And we won’t fall
A better chance beyond the horizon
And we will conquer
