Track Name: The R.E.M Cycle
I’ve watched the world fade away
By seeing all of my friends give in
Now I’m so sick of this life
So tired of always being the one who’s left behind

You don’t know what it’s like to feel alone
Left with nothing but voices that haunt your mind

Spoken words of how we are free
Yet fashion is screamed at me
These chains will always bind our feet
To the judgement of who we be
Our lives are based on popularity

As I search for a way

The fog fills my empty walls
Collapsing my lungs
I’ve been smoked out by your thoughts
Of standing on top
What’s the point in staying awake?
When that’s the real nightmare
I sleep to escape this world that I hate (x2)
Track Name: 1944
Standing in the shadow of a man
Who left the biggest footsteps to follow
Failing to meet expectations
Am I setting the bar too high?
‘Cause they say never judge a man
‘Til you’ve walked a mile in his shoes
Yet I never could, not with everything
You carried behind you
And when will this become any easier?
It won’t until I fucking die
But of course, I don’t blame you
I never could
It just must have been your time to go

Goodbye my father
Goodbye old friend
I never got to know you
And that’s my only true regret (x2)
Track Name: Faithless
I remember days of sitting in my room
Praying to a God that never showed
That was never there
To help me through those times
When I needed someone, anyone
And now it’s all so clear
I’ve been forced to blindly sing his name
And for what?
(False hope) That’s buried in the ground
So now I’m cutting my teeth on disbelief
Pushing faith to the side

Years on and still you show up at my door
Trying to force those lies upon me
Can’t you see? I’m learning from my own mistakes now
My old man once told me it’s always good to believe in something
Little did I know, it would be the person I see reflected everyday

I’ve just never felt so good, standing among them all (among them all)
No more hearts shaped like crosses
And we’re all chanting to the sky

This is for every challenge ever faced, without you
This is for every challenge ever faced, without you
This is from our hearts for every challenge we ever faced, alone
This is from our hearts for every challenge we ever faced, without you
This is from our hearts for every challenge we ever faced, alone
