Track Name: Greyscale
I drift away into the same place inside,
as the freezing coldness strucks my bones.
There's unrest in my head and all that it takes,
a thought of you and the pain just fades away.
As my vision slowly starts to blur,
I'm sinking deeper every day.
I think I never noticed what I've done until I turned around,
and saw my past so clearly,
I can never turn back now.
So I'll just keep staring at the walls and keep on trying to move on.
I thought I knew what I did.
I never thought I'd hide.
Track Name: Dead Ends
They say I should never change and then everything will take it's course,
but I still wonder why I keep seeing all those colours fade.
I don't want to feel dead when there's still a heart beating in my chest.
Please let me go,
I don't want to stay when I'm dying on the inside,
and I can't hold on if it takes too long.
I hope you still remember the times I called.
With all that's in my head I'm trying to hide from myself and my mind.
So I'll just shut my eyes and take a final breath before the world flies by.
I've always felt so alive when these thoughts weren't on my mind.
