Track Name: This Flesh
Can you accept a different side of life than once imagined? It's time to let the past sleep peacefully. Questioning how and wondering why. Searching desperately, even though once I am done with this flesh, they're going to throw my bones away. Should I have any hope?

I kept myself in a room -- no windows, no doors. Just a dull burning flame, from a candle that I've famed. It's then, I realized, I'm living to die.

I understand the feeling. I've felt it many times. I can't understand or relate to the end. To forget and move on, I just can't comprehend.

I am a man who doesn't have any faith. Most would take from that that I don't have a soul.

I am the one who decides my own destiny.

When I'm done with this flesh, they will throw my bones away. Should I have any hope?
Track Name: Colours
All of my life, I have built and lit the fires, waiting for something to come. I guess I was sick of being the only one burning alive.

And though I can't control the weather, I will claim your hurt as mine. I'll try and bring the colours out of your life.

I stare at an empty room, knowing how many have passed through; what memories they left behind. The closure, I thought, would never come.

This is the man that dwells within me. Maybe this is what my life was meant to be.

And though I can't control the weather, I will claim your hurt as mine. I'll try and bring the colours out of your life.

I cannot die knowing I could have done more.
Track Name: Degenerate
I'm not convinced there's a way to save me because you've torn me apart.

My world's become separate from the threads which tied me to an existence. Holding back my fear, alone I go. I'm starting to like the way it feels. What if I told you everything? All of the lies...

..which kept me tied together? I need to speak to make it real. If we stay quiet, we leave something unnamed. I don't want your pity or your sympathy.

Just remember how I need to go through this. So what if I asked you for help? I doubt you would even hear me. I doubt you would even see me.

What if I asked you to save me? Got down on my knees and begged?

Will you wait with me as I waste away?
