I won’t concern myself With all the shit you say You act like God himself I don’t envy you in any way Locked up in your castle Real life upon a shelf Happy, Superficial You’re so above anything else Keep up appearances No matter what happens Your lies will get exposed You’re an empty box What’s better than returning to sender More words, more promises Are bend and broken You can’t pretend to be the victim I had to learn the hard way Needed to cut the tie You’re to blame, what a shame You’re just a myth these days Keep up appearances No matter what happens Your lies will get exposed You’re an empty box What’s better than returning to sender Keep up appearances No matter what happens Your lies will get exposed You’re an empty box What’s better than to lock you up and throw away the key What’s better than, now I have to livenext to me What’s better than returning to sender

Was it You 03:06
Never one for anything good in this life Cannot cope, cannot dodge Every blow’s a knockout I’m awake, I’m awake But in a coma in my mind Crawling up the well Grasping at the light Everytime, things are going fine Something drags me down Or was it you Or was it you Who gave up on me when I was face down on the ground Or was it you Or was it you Who let me think that I am worthless, and unwanted (I almost gave up) Never thought you would stab me in the back Take me to a hell you call home A world turned to black Wide awake, wide awake And I’m opening my eyes Crawling out the well Now you’re in my sights Everytime, things are going fine Something drags me down Or was it you Or was it you Who gave up on me when I was face down on the ground Or was it you Or was it you Who let me think that I am worthless, and unwanted (I almost gave up) Everytime, things are going fine Something drags me down Or was it you Or was it you Who gave up on me when I was face down on the ground Or was it you Or was it you Who let me think that I am worthless, and unwanted (I almost gave up)

Coming back home empty handed After all that waiting I feel like I’ve been burned I’m asking for more Coming through the city Without hearing a single sound A ghost without a name Soars in my mind This heart was made for beating These lungs are made for breathing This fire is made for burning This is the light I never saw Give me what you promised me It means so much to me Who’s left to blame For the day, for the day, that never came Single best day of my life Turned to the single worse My world is falling apart It’s like I’m fucking cursed I never realize how time affected me The clock tick tocking in the back of my mind This heart was made for beating These lungs are made for breathing This fire is made for burning This is the light I never saw Give me what you promised me It means so much to me Who’s left to blame For the day, for the day, that never came Give me what you promised me It means so much to me Who’s left to blame For the day, for the day, that never came Give me what you promised me It means so much to me Who’s left to blame For the day, for the day, that never came

Your Beliefs 04:05
So many questions without answers All we want is just something we can hold on to Impossible to explain Anything to dull the pain Nothing easy left to do So we just trust the first to come Satisfying explanation And we jump aboard not carrying as much Is it innonence, is it blindness Ignorance, or just, a simple desire to believe I believe If you knew that everything was wrong would you stop believe in Or would you keep it that way If you realize that what you’ve learn was only based on a lie Will you defy your beliefs Your beliefs Will you defy your beliefs Defy your beliefs Since day one we wanna believe That somebody or someone can lean the way Because we think, that we’re weak We can’t do it on our own We can’t stand on our two feet So we just trust the first to come Satisfying explanation And we jump aboard not carrying as much Is it innonence, is it blindness Ignorance, or just, a simple desire to believe I believe If you knew that everything was wrong would you stop believe in Or would you keep it that way If you realize that what you’ve learn was only based on a lie Will you defy your beliefs Your beliefs Will you defy your beliefs Defy your beliefs I you knew that everything was wrong would you stop believe in Or would you keep it that way If you realize that what you’ve learn was only based on a lie Will you defy your beliefs Your beliefs Will you defy your beliefs Defy your beliefs Your beliefs Will you defy, will you defy Your beliefs

One Life 02:56
Is it more that I can take or can I handle this I refrain myself from doing the things I miss Can’t stop and take a bow This is how it’s got to be now Can’t shake the feeling that eyes are all on me We shift the blame over to society When did we stop dreaming When do we start believing I envy birds who get to fly away Until I grew my own wings One life for me to get through One life to finally find the truth One life, one life, worth dying for One life to make things right One life to take the spotlight One life, one life, to leave them wanting more Staring at the ceiling and all I can do is pray Tomorrow is hope for a better day Will we be satisfied When can we finally shine I envy birds who get to fly away Until I grew my own wings One life for me to get through One life to finally find the truth One life, one life, worth dying for One life to make things right One life to take the spotlight One life, one life, to leave them wanting more One life for me to get through One life to finally find the truth One life, one life, worth dying for One life, one life, worth dying for One life, one life, to leave them wanting more

about

Arising From Montreal, Québec

As the years go by at a frantic pace the young men who thought their music resonated throughout the world saw their dreams crumble as the hourglass flowed through time.After fifteen years spent playing unchosen venues and reaching unsuited crowds,
they felt the urge of going back to the drawning board.
