Track Name: New Priorities
The bravest left us here to die. And I’m walking around this town.
Without finding anyone who has ever shared a dream with me.
Even though we have planned to live this life free from being cowards.
Free from the threat of stopping halfway.
The plan has changed for you and you’re laughing out loud at my expectations.

You’re laughing out loud!

And it’s just a simple matter of killing our innocence.
Which is your great reason? Fear or convenience?
If you’re afraid of walking through these crooked lines.
You are all free to leave me behind.
I’m used to temporary presences.
And I know that you are looking for an easy answer.
This won't be the last time.

I won’t force you to live for something you don't love.
I know the plan has changed.
No matter the circumstances, I'm standing where I am.

I’d rather take the risk of standing where I am.
Track Name: Lying In Cozy Graves
There's a feeling of repulsion growing on me.
I have been seeing many outrageous things that try to violate my passivity.
An inoffensive uprising keeps me safe from deeper questioning.

My critical thinking, it was violently doped.
I'm dying under anesthesia. I'm glad not to be lucid.
My death will be slower than I hoped.

This world is so unfair and wrong.
And I see no incoherence in being just the way I seem to repudiate.
Our moments of distraction are long-lasting and terrifyingly intense.

My critical thinking, it was violently doped.
I'm dying under anesthesia. I'm glad not to be lucid.

I'm dying under anesthesia.
Track Name: Devastating Insecurity
Maybe I could be the one who's generating pointless hatred in your heart.
Trying to hide myself behind the comfort of being yet another hostile guy
who considers it natural.

You don't know exactly why it's happening.
But we're gonna fight together against all the things that displease us
for some banal reason.
Never show your weakness to anyone.
It doesn’t matter if the message that we’re spreading is empty and harmful.
Used to disguise fears that don’t surrender.
Fears will not surrender.

They believe there are less aggressive ways to change concepts.
And I need to get rid of this threat.
Hiding myself behind the comfort of being yet another hostile guy
who considers it natural.

I’m here to stain your personality and wash away the pain.
But don’t expect me to be sorry if you die in vain, following my mistaken beliefs.

We’re gonna fight together.
And you don’t know exactly why it’s happening.
Track Name: Values And Opinions Fall Apart When The Devil Whispers In Our Ears
Whatever happens we'll be united to prove our strength to this world.
Our values are unbreakable.
Doesn't that sound beautiful?
I can no longer measure how much we are being inspiring.

I have no intention to disappoint someone.
But more than ever, I feel my actions being weaker than my tongue.
And now all my dreams are coming true.
Fortune still looking down on you.
We’re susceptible to seduction.
How does it sound?

When the lights of my integrity goes out.
I flirt with evil without judgment.
Contradictions are all around.
And I'm not the only one who's listening to the voices of new opportunities.

I have no intention to disappoint someone.
But more than ever, I feel my actions being weaker than my tongue.
And now all my dreams are coming true.
Fortune still looking down on you.
We’re susceptible to seduction.
How does it sound?
Track Name: I Swear I Was
I was on top, I swear.
My memories will never tell me lies.
But things change their places constantly. And it’s a shame.
I was where I was supposed to be.
But I’ve just figured out that everything is over.

You're trying to warn me about something.
But just to let you know: No! I don't already know the anguish, the doubts, the pain.
People are born to suffer, not me.
And I'm not just skin and bones, I'm stronger.

I'm stronger than ever.
Grabbing all the things that you can't touch.
Dancing with all the ghosts you fear the most.
Honestly, I feel a bit threatened when awesomeness turns into quick forgetting.
But it's just sometimes.

You are trying to warn me about something.
But just to let you know: No! I don't already know the anguish, the doubts, the pain.
People are born to suffer, not me.
And I'm not just skin and bones.
I'm stronger than ever.

There’re no chances left to bring back the past.
Now I'm nothing but the dust on their feet.
Unrememberable.
