Track Name: Blinded
Gaining ground to watch myself
slip right back into the crack
The candle of life burning at both ends
Flickering with my despair

I can't see straight
My feelings blind me
Overwhelmed
Second guessing gets the best of me
Never thought I'd be
My own worst enemy
A dog in a cage
Never to be free

Out of breath
Trying to keep my mind straight
Rope slips right through my hands
Nowhere to reach out
Nothing to cling to
My fall has no end

I can't see straight
My feelings blind me
Overwhelmed
Second guessing gets the best of me
Never thought I'd be
My own worst enemy
A dog in a cage
Never to be free

My minds a jail
It imprisons me
I'm rotting away so quickly
I'm not the man I thought I'd be

Shucks

Alone in a room
But I'm surrounded by fools
I'm having trouble to relate
To a familiar face
Take a step back
Compare me to you
I never wanted to become this
But you forced me to
Track Name: Short Fuse
Worn out
Beaten down
Drained
An endless cycle of pain

Gave you the chance
You fucked it up
Came back for more
Like it wasn't enough

Patience worn thin
You refuse to see
Bleed me dry
Strip it from me

Pull the blade from my back
Spit in my face
Like it was all a fucking act

Cut my losses
Shut you out

SHORT FUSE
Track Name: Trust Slips Through Your Hands (CIV Cover)
Putting on an act
That just isn't working
You stole from your friends
When you thought they weren't looking
You're whole fucking life
You put on a front
You pushed it to the point
Where my

Trust
Slips through your hands
Trust
You don't understand
Trust
Slips through your hands

Thought you were the one
It's what you haven't got
Try to play it cool
Why be something that you're not?
It's just the fucking point
That you steal
That you miss
You pushed it to the point
Where my

Trust
Slips through your hands
Trust
You don't understand
Trust
Slips through your hands
Trust
Slips through your hands
Track Name: Cleanse
Tried to see your best intentions
Only blinded by your deception
Wasted my time
Clawed at my mind
Tried to break me down

Wielded like weapons
Your words cut right through
Scream for attention
I've only grown deaf to you

Turn my back
Cut you out
How the fuck should I react?
Watch me fall
Watch me break
You'd love to

Gave you matches and gas
You burned the bridge down
Accept the fact that there's nothing
That I could do
Erase your face
Cleanse myself of you
Pulled your weight for far too long
Only to have grown tired and strong

Turn my back
Cut you out
How the fuck should I react?
Watch me fall
Watch me break
You'd love to
