Track Name: Casket
Do you feel the break before the bend? The memory of time you spent hiding from the world you thought would swallow you alive? Does the question ring inside your head, "How'd you end up alone again?" I see the fire in your stare and the way you scream but no one hears. Just like me, you quiver with every word you speak, it happens all the time. You miss at every try. Show me your hands, I bet they shake like mine.

Every sleepless night leaves you worse than before. You looked and you leapt but you fell to the floor. But just because your jaded doesn't mean you'll never mend. You can pull yourself together, you can start again.

I remember when I was scared of being swallowed in my room. You're not the only one with skeletons in the closet, staring back at you. This bed's a casket and I'm sinking deeper in it, a nail away from being suffocated by the abyss. We're going under, but we won't stay down. I won't let the dead years keep me buried underground.

We're going under but we won't stay down.

Every sleepless night leaves you worse than before. You looked and you leapt but you fell to the floor. But just because your jaded doesn't mean you'll never mend. You can pull yourself together, you can start again.

I know how it is to feel foreign to everything like a lost soul constantly drifting. I know how it is to be afraid to close your eyes, so if you are scared then so am I.

I know how it is to feel foreign to everything, like a lost soul constantly drifting. So if you are scared, then so am I.
Track Name: Hurricane of '99
I felt my skin crack from being left out in the cold. The years made me feel so small, watching everyone grow up as I grew old. I felt my heart harden with the bark on the trees as everyone that I once loved slipped through my arms like a bitter winter breeze...a chilling reminder of who they are, and all that I could never be. Rushing through the hallways and turning ever corner, I hold my breath, close my eyes...waiting 'til it's over. Waiting for the storm to pass as I am stuck here in it's path...just when I think it's all blown over, I feel it in the air...it's coming back. And not a soul will make a sound as I twist in the wind and hit the ground. I remember when we all felt safe and sound, the days when the weather was something we never talked about. But now with every gust of wind and every ray of blinding sun, everybody comes and goes as I quietly become undone. But I won't hang my head when the sun goes down tonight. There's better places to put my faith and there's more out there for me to find. (I never thought I'd have to grow up like this...alone, living my life from behind a window. I never thought I'd have to live like this, trapped in these hallways of glares and blank faces.) I never thought I'd have to lose my best friend and be the one left in the cold when the storm begins. My heart is calloused and my skin is worn, but I'll never leave behind the one's who kept me warm.
