Track Name: Liars
So push me from my chair
And let my feet dangle till they hit dead air
I hate my fucking friends and their motherfucking lies
Tell me the truth; look me in my dead eyes
Tell me what you see: is it you or is it me?
We’re walking, rotting corpses, together in disharmony
We’re the anchors we can’t cut
We’re drowning and we don’t give a fuck

Why are you still here
Swim and save yourself (I know you want to)

God knows you never cared about me
I’m drowning but you didn’t care to save me

So burn me from my hole
Burn away everything I used to know
Feed me more lies, it’ll never be enough
Hit me with my drug, fuck yeah, that’s the stuff

Let me go, let me spin out of control
That’s what you were going to do
Leave me here in my misery
Leave me here in my drug-addled haze

I hope this explains a little
I hope this explains a lot

So now I’m stuck
This misery is just my luck
We’re the anchors we can’t cut
We’re drowning and we don’t give a fuck

Why are you still here
Swim and save yourself (I know you want to)

God knows you never cared about me
I’m drowning but you didn’t care to save me
You were an anchor on my soul
You pulled me down, down into this damn hole

Tell me what you see: is it you or is it me?
We’re walking, rotting corpses, together in disharmony
We’re the anchors we can’t cut
We’re drowning and we don’t give a fuck
Track Name: The Truth
Hope against hope
That all will go right
Try and try again
But it’s a losing fight
I can’t win this battle
And the war is out of reach
Hope against hope
I won’t feel the teeth

Tell me there’s a chance
Tell me it’s not a lie
Tell me the truth
And look me in the eye
I’ve had enough
With my so-called “friends” and their lies
So please no more games
I just want to live my life

Hold my hand and let’s run
Through the fog, escape the sun
Tell me it will be alright
That the sun won’t try
To find me, to burn me out
To take away all that I have
Tell me it will be alright
That you won’t ever leave me behind

If even you could leave me
Without love or a hope
What chance is there for me
If you leave me behind?

If you leave me behind
For only death to find
What was all of this
Just more lies to bind?
The most painful truth
Is better than the sweetest lies
So if you have something to say
Tell me the truth and watch my eyes

If there is no hope for me
I’ll give in to my cynicism
I’ll drown in my tragedy
If it’s all for naught
