AWAKE // SEDATE if i thought there was a chance to try this all again could i find out who i was before I lost my innocence? it’s getting harder every day to stay present and awake staring at the past lost in thoughts not meant to last i lie in bed awake thoughts still racing through my head it feels like i’m always awake i need more sedatives we might not prevail, but somehow we adapt waking up in time to watch the world collapse you’re all that i can see you’re all that i can breathe now please quiet down the world so i can get some sleep i lie in bed awake filled with existential dread it feels like i’m always awake i need more sedatives
2.
YOUTH // DECAY our whole lives cast so clear on our faces every thought, every hope lost to aging but i will live forever or have i been here dead for years? our youth passed by, it was fleeting we tell each other stories, repeating and i will live forever or have i been here dead for years? a forest of lights the dawn of time these photographs all covered in glass

OPEN WOUNDS ((U DYE REMIX)) i tried to run away but i got lost again you said you’d never lie again and now you pretend that it’s all in my head you lied again you can’t call me up looking for details and i would never show up looking for a meaning but you still get to do everything you want it kills me so i got lost again you said you’d never lie again and now you pretend that it’s all in my head so i’m left here with all your bloodshed and i’m trying to mend all the open wounds that you've left me pick up the pieces of what’s left
6.
PRAYERS ((GIUSEPPE CAPOLUPO REMIX)) why can’t i recognize the words that i hear you pray to him? if you’re already an angel you can touch the sky living in your own hell you can burn alive why can’t i recognize the words that i hear you pray to him? i taste it on your skin i sense the greatest sin your faith is so unfaithful pray and cry a life you made so painful no more prayers tonight why can’t i recognize the words that i hear you pray to him? i taste it on your skin i sense the greatest sin i can’t seem to clarify the thoughts in which my words are clouded in the truth's been spread so thin i sense the greatest sin
