Track Name: Open The Gates
Break the glass, escape the fate that's been
Plaguing your mind for all of these days

The rage in my heart is from
Years of staying set in my ways

Comfort never found me now I'm reaching in despair
Because I'm sick of trying

Enough of breaking it down
And I'll no longer wait

We sit here in our silence and I struggle just to care
and it's like condemnation

You're always weighing me down
And I'll no longer wait
I need to bring this life to an end

I don't want to waste it all on everything you want to be
I don't want to push away, all the things we've never seen
It's here I waste away while my soul is screaming
On the edge of a broken dream, you'd never want to feel this

You've uncaged this animal that's been
Living inside this lonely world
In the past it's been this way where I shut my
Damned mouth and hear you scream
Of all the god damned things I've heard you say
Never once have you said it to my face
I want to burn those letters in front of your face

I'm sick of being beaten down
And I'll no longer wait
I need to bring this life to an end

I don't want to be alone when I close my eyes
Walk into this dream with me and I'll never leave your side

Rising from the ashes
The blood spills on the grave
This is the second coming of my life
