Track Name: That Your Time Was Well Spent
In the back of my mind, I can still remember
The older brother, The dormant temper
I saw you stray from the path you set
It was too easy to forget
The bright young boy you used to be
The part of you I'll never see
And never will, its in the past
I always thought you would last

The heroin
The drugs seeped in
Your blackened soul
You lost control

Your fathers face filled with remorse
Your choices took their final course
Your mothers eyes filled up with tears
She watched you grow up all of those years

The doves flew free as they lowered you down
into the cold and hardened ground

Your lifeless face
Deaths embrace
Track Name: Hidden Courage
We've grown sick
Of this struggle
This uphill war
Is unbearable

Our supplies are low
Rations running thin
The predictions are
We'll never win

But I grab my gun
Carry on through the smoke
Eyes full of tears
A heart full of hope

My brothers behind me
Bullets dead ahead
We don't know how we got here
But we know how it ends

Our optimism
Knows we'll be fine
But reality tell us
It's the end of the line

But I grab my gun
Carry on through the smoke
Eyes full of tears
A heart full of hope
A journey of fear
A cold December
No turning back
Will I be remembered

I wasn't ready for this
I'm reminded of you
And all that I've missed

I feel it entering my chest
Piercing straight through my vest
My lungs begin to flood
With my precious living blood

Surrounded by aggression
More than I've ever seen
It's all just too much
When you're only...
Sixteen
Sixteen

Track Name: Square One
We built these towers way too high
We cannot see the sunlight
Cut through every mountainside
Just to hasten the drive

Do you remember what this used to look like?
How could anyone
Born into a world of cables and concrete
What have we become

Bring it back to square one
Look at what we've done
Bring it back to square one
Where it had begun

I've grown so tired
Of the way we live
Poison the skies
But can we forgive

Ourselves for this
Horror vacui
Wipe our slate clean
Before our eyes

Bring it back to square one
Look at what we've done

Do you remember (what it looked like)
Do you remember (what it looked like)
Do you remember (what it looked like)

How could anyone?
