Track Name: Mirrors Lie
Mirror, Mirror on the wall; the greatest liar of them all,
You've never once reflected the truth to anyone who looks into you.

I want you to believe in you the way I do
I want you to see you like I do
Those insecurities are nothing more than fantasies.
Lift up your head, (Mirrors Lie) Your beauty is more than just Inside.

We've been beaten down and bruised
we’ve ended up so confused
When it comes to who we are,
When security isn't ours.
Look at your reflection once more.
Point out one place where your heart was torn.
Look at your reflection once more.
Point out one thing another adores
Look at your reflection once more.
Now notice that hope has been born.
Look at your reflection once more.
Just don’t let hope be torn, No!

What this liar reflects, it shall never affect you
So promise me, oh promise me this is what you’ll do:
Chase your dreams,
I swear you can achieve anything!
Just believe.
Nothing’s ever as bad as it seems.
I would know,
Oh, I’ve felt the lowest of lows,
I’ve contemplated death,
then learned to appreciate every breath,
Every single breath.

Mirror, Mirror
To see the truth, We’ll all just have to shatter you.
Track Name: Insomniac, The Dreamer
Don’t wake me up,
once I finally fall asleep!
Just let me dream!
For far too long I’ve counted sheep.

Be proud of yourself now, don’t care if they’re proud!

I just want to close my eyes, believe the insults were all lies,
remember just how hard I’ve tried, and find a way to free a restless mind.
Insomnia tries to steal my dreams, and I’m not fond of petty thieves.
Believing in yourself and what you can be is the only way to make them all see.
I was meant to touch the lives of many, not just the lives of few.
But if this is just a dream, I can’t apologize. It’s what I’ll always do.
It’s what I’ll always do.

I just want to close my eyes, believe the insults were all lies,
remember just how hard I’ve tried, and find a way to free a restless mind.
Insomnia tries to steal my dreams, and I’m not fond of petty thieves.
Believing in yourself and what you can be is the only way to make them all see.

Life’s never easy, no one ever said it would be.
If they did, they must be dreaming.
It’s best you start believing; at least in yourself,
even though you’re filled with doubt
You have to find your way out!

You can’t give up when life proves It’s not fair
a lack of dreams is nothing short of a nightmare…
From which you won’t wake
This song is for all the dreamers,
Now lemme break it down for the non-believers.
Track Name: Sailing With Anchors ft. Trevor Tatro (Outline in Color)
Sailor, you only care when it benefits you.
being your sail; something I refuse to do!
For far too long I was the only member of your crew,
but this storm you brewed is one that we won’t get through.

A wise man once said: “The smallest hole shall sink the largest ship.”
Why did I let you in? I always knew you’d sink this!
I hope you can swim! Don’t sink with the anchors you live with!

Lies are all that leave your tongue,
while water will one day fill your lungs.
Your interests are all you care about,
and that’s what caused your growth this drought.

Your selfish desires just feed the fact that you’re a liar.
In my life you started a fire,
oh arsonist,
some day you’ll grow tired
of living the
same sad life,
numbing the
hate and strife.
Everyday, you’re losing the fight
against this storm that sheds no light.

You never knew trust,
you only knew lust.

A lone wolf until the end,
You’ll never be called “friend”
A hand is something I won’t lend.
Never again.

Lies are all that leave your tongue,
while water will one day fill your lungs.
Your interests are all you care about,
and that’s what caused your growth this drought.

You neglect your crew,
you betray your friends.
Lets see who’s there in the end.
I’m done…

Not Yet.

Trevor Tatro:
Beck and call
Blossom then fall
You’re torn
I’m stuck
Sick men who don’t give a fuck
What have I become?
As water fills your lungs, reflect on what you have become.
Track Name: The Labyrinth
When we’re awake and you’re with me,
a bright new world is all I see.
If I fall asleep to dream, oh if I do,
Rest assured, I only dream of you
I don’t have a choice in the matter,
oh, but if I did, I’d choose you
Again and again until the end.

Your laughter is my medicine,
Your smile is my cure.
Although my heart’s in pieces,
It’s still all yours. (it’s still all yours, it’s all yours)

I do admit, this is it.
What you see, is what you get.
I hope it’s good enough
I’m giving you all my love
Your laughter, my medicine,
Your smile, my cure.
Although my heart’s in pieces,
It’s still all yours (It’s all yours)
I’m sorry I’m a coward when it comes to losing you.
My words don’t always come through the way I want them to
and I’ve never needed anything the way I need you.
But you’re everything I’m scared to lose.
Track Name: Heterochromia
To see through these eyes would be a surprise to you
Oh, the things that I’ve been through.

I know my paper heart’s been ripped apart
all of my fingers have paper-cuts

I tried to put it back together,
in the harshest of weather,
only to find since day one
I’ve known I’d once again see the sun

Though I’ve been beaten and scarred,
no one will ever know how hard
it is to travel this far
barefoot and covered in scars.
You can’t walk a mile in my shoes, (in my shoes)
Because I’m not quite as blessed as you. (blessed as you)
You would have to walk a mile in my skin,
too bad you wouldn’t survive it.
You would start to go insane.
Sanity is something I can’t claim.
I can’t escape my own thoughts.
I don’t know if this is real or not.

Welcome to the fight I’ve always fought. GO!
Your darkest of times
Will shed the brightest of lights
unto who you can be.
I know it’s the furthest from easy.

Though I’ve been beaten and scarred,
no one will ever know how hard
it is to travel this far
barefoot and covered in scars.
You can’t walk a mile in my shoes, (in my shoes)
Because I’m not quite as blessed as you. (blessed as you)
You would have to walk a mile in my skin,
too bad you wouldn’t survive it.
You would start to go insane.
Sanity is something I can’t claim.
I can’t escape my own thoughts.
I don’t know if this is real or not

Despite what others may say, they will never understand your pain,

and neither could I (neither could I)
But either way survive another day that pours rain, (that pours rain)
The sun will rise, (the sun will rise) pain won’t remain. (it won’t remain)
You’ve got another day, another chance to live.

Learn that life is a gift, you can’t give up on it!
Track Name: Lyrical Meaning
Music is for the ears, not the eyes.
It’s meant to speak truth, not lies.
So tell me why everything we see
is based on nothing other than greed.

Part the raging seas of this industry,
bring back meaning, because it’s seeming
like there’s no emotion left
only concern for image and self.
We’ve waited on this for far too long
Now we’re ready to write our songs
We’ve waited on this for far too long
Now we’re ready to write our songs.
This is our journey! This is our trial!
We’re setting out to make a difference in somebody’s life!
Make a difference. Just feel this!

My mind tortures me as I debate; (as I debate)
what is real, and what is fake? (what is fake?)
We all need music to which we can relate,
so bring back the meaning for the lyric’s sake. (for the lyrics sake)

I can’t stand idle and watch time pass
as this world continues to regress.

Oh, I just want you to feel. I just want you to feel.
Feel something real;
Something that comes from the heart,
So many failed from the start.
I just need you to feel. I just need you to feel.
Feel something real.
Something that comes from the heart.
So many failed from the start.
My mind tortures me as I debate; (as I debate)
what is real, and what is fake? (what is fake?)
We all need music to which we can relate,
so bring back the meaning for the lyric’s sake. (for the lyrics sake)

This is our journey, yeah, This is our trial!
We’re setting out to make a difference in somebody’s life!
(In somebody’s life)
We’ve waited on this for far too long
Now we’re ready to write our songs
We’re setting out to make a difference in somebody’s life!
Track Name: iOpener
You made me insecure with all the lies.
How many times, how many times have I tried
to trust the words you say when I have lost all faith?

How many times have I tried?

So beware whoever’s next, Your heart is nothing in her hands.

And I wanna sew your lips closed.
It’s the only way you’ll ever speak the truth. (speak the truth)
This is a game that I could never lose.
Oh, Your lies will be the end of you.
Live your life in this abyss
Truth be told: you won't be missed
Get down on your knees
It’s where you’re meant to be
As it all comes falling down
watch who wears the crown
you aren’t the queen of a thing
You’re just a little less, just a little less,
just a little less than nothing

When your ship is sinking in the sea
Don’t you dare look back at me. (don’t look back at me)
I told you all along (all along), this isn’t were my heart belongs.
Lies will always find their way to the surface.

They won’t sink with you.

Your life is stuck on repeat, rewind back to find deceit.
Place your bets, Place your bets. Your anchor cannot hold me.
You’ve got a secret, it’s not hard to see.
Your secret will never involve me.

You cannot bury the truth, it will bury you.
