Track Name: Poison Minds
If I could find an escape
there won't be another day
I'm trapped inside this empty place
I would run far away
rebuild my broken pieces
I hope I'm not too late

This world is not the one for me
I'm suffocating and i need to breathe
It's dark and I can not see
I just need somebody to carry me

I can't believe that this is happening
I feel so numb, another day like this
I need to do this on my own
I need to carry on alone

Why does this have to be?
I'm losing my mind, I'm losing my mind
When will we be set free?
from our poison minds, our poison minds

Now that we're here again,
I don't know what to say, my friend
I search the sky for answers,
but the clouds wont spell it out for me

And I don't know why
I try and try and try
It feels like nothing will change
everything will stay the same

Why does this have to be?
I'm losing my mind, I'm losing my mind
When will we be set free?
from our poison minds, our poison minds

If I could find an escape
there won't be another day
I'm trapped inside this empty place
I would run far away
rebuild my broken pieces
I hope I'm not too late

If I could find an escape
there won't be another day
I'm trapped inside this empty place
I would run far away
rebuild my broken pieces
I hope I'm not too late
Track Name: Run Away
How long will it take for you to notice
all of the things i do for you
I really want you to notice
all of the things I do for you

Go

Your life seemed like it feel apart,
I came to pick you up again
I want to help you make things good,
I'll always love you so

I will never find this freedom
I will never reach my goals
I will never make you notice
that I helped you save yourself

I will never find this freedom
I will never reach my goals
this continues on forever
over and over, just help me now

I'll run away from the nightmare that I'm living
why can't I escape from the feelings that possess me?
Please help me find my way
why can't i escape from the feelings that possess me?

Go

I call out for something now
but no one hears me scream
I begin to scream and shout
but no one cares

I'll run away from the nightmare that I'm living
why can't I escape from the feelings that possess me?
Please help me find my way
why can't i escape from the feelings that possess me?

You said, you said you'd be there for me
You said, you said you'd be there for me
You said, you said you'd be there for me
You said, you said you'd be there for me

You said, you said you'd be there for me
You said, you said you'd be there for me
You said, you said you'd be there for me
You said, you said you'd be there for me
Track Name: Dirt
Another lie, another choice that you made
Another person that you pushed away
What makes you think that you can play this game,
if you cant control yourself
You're just a little too late

Now

I wish I listened to the thoughts in my head
I should have gave up but continued instead
All the signs were telling me no
I kick myself for never letting you go

I wasted so much time
trying to make things right
And now you set me free
Too many scars on me

This world is plagued with rotten souls
I'm sick of this, it's getting old

Go clean the dirt beneath your skin
Another minute of this constant suffering
There's probably angels deep within
So set them free, you will be a better being

Clean the dirt, come on wash it away
I wish you listened to the things that I say
You'll never be the person you want to be
due to your bitter personality

Clean the dirt, baby wash it away
I wish you listened to the things that I say
Open your mind and free your soul
and watch your life unfold

I cant believe a thing you say

You're beautiful but it's only skin deep
What matters most is underneath

This world is plagued with rotten souls
I'm sick of this, it's getting old

Go clean the dirt beneath your skin
Another minute of this constant suffering
There's probably angels deep within
So set them free, you will be a better being

Go clean the dirt beneath your skin
Another minute of this constant suffering
There's probably angels deep within
So set them free, you will be a better being

Go clean the dirt beneath your skin
Another minute of this constant suffering
There's probably angels deep within
So set them free, you will be a better being
Track Name: Nightmare
How long do we have to go on?
How long do we have to stay strong?

It's coming for you

Why can't anybody see that there's a problem?
It lies beneath us and it is not welcome

Everybody is so naive,
with all these warnings why can't anyone see?
Another day and I'll be under the ground
So pray to god and do not frown

(woah)

Woah, another day wasted,
tryna figure out a way to fix this pain
And when I'm lost and all alone,
Somebody come save me
I can't keep it inside
tryna figure out a way to kill this pain
Another nightmare, all alone
Somebody please save me

Another night, I wake up in a cold sweat
I can't ignore these dreams that haunt me, I'm so helpless
You think I'm doing just fine, but I'm not alright
and the memories left will fall behind
and there's nowhere left to run
(and there's nowhere left to run)

Woah, another day wasted
tryna figure out a way to fix this pain
And when I'm lost and all alone
Somebody come save me
I can't keep it inside
tryna figure out a way to kill this pain
Another nightmare, all alone
Somebody please save me

I can finally breathe, now that I ran away
Now I can breathe, because I ran away
