Track Name: Rainbringer
Can you feel the oppression of running out of time?
We're too bound to discretion not to act like we're fine,
both too old to die young and too young to realize,
that memories and misery are just two of a kind,
instead I - for fuck's sake - I could see my breath in that dusk of november,
Stepping out of tracks in our search for answers
Not that I regret, I can barely remember,
You were growing inside of me establishing cancer.

I did not move on, i just moved out of your way
If misery loves company she can count on me.

We're out of time, if we're about to bend, let it end.
Can you feel that? That feeling that words they cannot simply express.
Can you feel the oppression, that weight on your chest.
Everywhere that i run to, that's part of the trap.

We're thirsting for meaning for a sip of answers,
We can only taste the salt of this sea of cancer.
So, Rainbringer, step down the ladder.
Rainbringer, you've been here forever.
I should have known, i should have know we'd worn out.
It's just our time, our time running out.

I should have known we'd worn out.
It's just our time running out.
I should have known we'd worn out.
It's just our time running out.
Our time running out.

I did not move on, I just moved out of your way.
If misery loves company she can count on me.
You didn't shine, i did not shine either.
We could thrive, we withered.
You didn't shine, i did not shine either.
We could thrive, we withered.
Track Name: Integrity
It’s all for nothing.

My road is paved with broken boulders,
such as the promises that I never kept,
I carry my sins right upon my shoulders,
they’re held together by a single packthread.
Unforgiven, can’t fix what’s not broken.
Unbeliever, there’s not signs of omen.
I’m asking for clarity, and even if hopeless and shattered in pieces I’m keeping my integrity.
Cause I carry the weight of a life as an underachiever.
I made amend for my mistakes, but I’ve never been eager to do so.

We live alone and die alone, our throne is made of thorns.

We’re not giving up yet we don’t seek salvation
We’re not giving up yet that’s taken in consideration.
I’ve been looking up with awe, I’ve been drowning my fears way too deep to remind me that I only got a breathe of fresh air before they haunt me.

It’s all for nothing.

Such a narrow line, between the misery and being just fine.

Always forcing, life not to overcome me,
I beared enough annoyance, because of your fake morals,
so live like you preach.

We are worthless and hopeless and faithless and voiceless and yet,
we’re not giving up, we’re not giving in.
We are worthless and hopeless and faithless and yet
we’re not giving up and, we’re not giving in.

Didn’t know what to expect back then, there’s no room for remorse.
Cause it rarely, it rarely gets better, it tends to get worse.

We live alone and die alone.
We live alone and die alone, our throne is made of thorns.

We’re not giving up yet we don’t seek salvation
We’re not giving up yet that’s taken in consideration.
I’ve been looking up with awe, I’ve been drowning my fears way too deep to remind me that I only got a breathe of fresh air before they haunt me.

We're not giving up.
We're giving anything, anything but up.
Track Name: The Blue Ringed
I’ve always thought that I could get over the fact that you could curse this home in the moment you left.
I’ve always thought that I could hold part of the blame, there’s no trace of redemption, since you put us to shame, and it’s too fucking late.

Cause if you leave us now, it’s better if you leave for good.
Cause I don’t think that I could take any of your shit, excuses are overdue.
And you could leave us now, I think we will do good on our own.
Cause I don’t think that I could take any of your shit, we lasted for way too long.

You know what they say, it’s blood of your blood.
But you don’t deserve shit, enough is enough.

I won’t say you didn’t mean a thing to me,
'cause you did mean a thing to me,
and that thing was hell, yeah that thing was hell.
I won’t say you didn’t mean a thing to me,
'cause you did mean a thing to me,
and that thing was hell, yeah that thing was hell.

You’ve always been so afraid, to speak to my face.
I’m not buying a single word you say since you don’t seem to believe them in first place.

Cause if you plant a seed, but then you lie and cheat,
Well it wasn’t me, the one who misbehaved.
Cause if you’re that fed up, that you can’t handle us,
Well you’re old enough, to man the fuck up.

And I don’t think that you could stand your ground, your excuses are overdue.

This is a mere recognition of the way that you deal with your family.

I won’t say you didn’t mean a thing to me,
'cause you did mean a thing to me,
and that thing was hell, yeah that thing was hell.
I won’t say you didn’t mean a thing to me,
'cause you did mean a thing to me,
and that thing was hell, yeah that thing was hell.

A place one shouldn’t live to tell,
But I feel sorry for you man.

What kind of man would let his family down?
You call yourself a father but you can’t turn this around.
I will never forget the way you stood you ground right before you left,
Well check what’s left now.
Track Name: Rough Waters
I've seen tides on the beach, collecting the corpses
of those in between the fled and the homesick.
I thought I'd never leave, too afraid of the courses,
I did what I did, to cleanse my remorses.

I set sail, not to leave things behind but so set things ahead.
I set sail, to watch the streams pass me by not my fears hold me back.

Aweigh the anchor, to our salvation.
It's the journey that means something, not the single destination.
And on we go.

We went too far to turn back now.
We went this far just to turn this around.

Don't wait for me awake, we're heading home.
We're coming home.

We're coming home, we still stand strong.
We never saw it coming.
We're coming home, still miles to go.
We can still hear their calling.

And now winds are against us, I'll take my time.
Odds were against us, we did not seem to mind.
Winds are against us, we will abide, just blow from the top of your lungs.

Aweigh, aweigh the anchor.
Are we, are we still welcome home?
Aweigh, aweigh the anchor.
Are we, are we still welcome?

It calls for a toast to the best of the intentions.
It calls for a toast to the worst of the occasions.
Worst of the occasions.

So leave the docks, no reason to keep safe.

We're coming home, we still stand strong.
We never saw it coming.
We're coming home, still miles to go.
We can still hear their calling.

We're heading home.
We're coming home.

We're coming home, we still stand strong.
We never saw it coming.
