Track Name: Hope Is A Mistake
I always knew I'd end up on my own
Drunk, broken, miserable and alone
Thoughts of you always on my mind
Every time that I close my eyes.

My eyes

It's every time I close my eyes
How you like to twist the knife
You get so drunk that you spill your guts
Hope is a mistake
Hope is a mistake
Track Name: The Future Is Cancelled
You can't breathe life into what is dead, and I said, "where did this fall apart"?
"It's not you, it's me", how fucking cliché, but you were broken from the start

I hope you feel my pain, I hope you drown in your shame
I hope you're miserable, I hope you feel empty, I hope you're miserable now

You dream of running, so many times
But you'll never find the finish line
When you're in bed, in the dark alone
Maybe you'll notice me when I'm gone

You wear a dress of lies, make up that hides the scars, but I see through you
Were you ever really there? did you ever really care? was any of this true?

I hope you feel my pain, I hope you drown in your shame
I hope you're miserable, I hope you feel empty, I hope you're miserable now

You dream of running, so many times
But you'll never find the finish line
When you're in bed, in the dark alone
Maybe you'll notice me when I'm gone

The world owes you nothing

You say you want, an apology, be that's just not, that's just not me
Track Name: Awake In A Nightmare
Look at a photograph, try to take myself away, to better days
But it's not real, just a lie on film, like the lie spilled from your tongue
This beautiful noise, clouding your thoughts, I just want you to feel something again
I'm alone, chasing ghosts, chasing the ghost of you

I'm awake, stuck
Awake in this nightmare
Awake, stuck
Awake in this nightmare

Paralysed, sleep deprived, thoughts of you flash through my mind
Paranoid, stuck in a void, to my fate I am resigned
I am resigned

Look in the mirror, and all that I see, a forgotten man staring back at me
You stole his hope, and crushed his spirit, took a beating heart and tried to kill it
You've got a mouth full of lies, and a head full of doubts. And a heart no one will ever crack
I'm alone, chasing ghosts, chasing the ghost of you

I'm awake, stuck
Awake in this nightmare
Awake, stuck
Awake in this nightmare

Paralysed, sleep deprived, thoughts of you flash through my mind
Paranoid, stuck in a void, to my fate I am resigned
I am resigned
Track Name: A Dream Like Transit
Believe in, nothing

Drunk with sleep, a dream like transit
Flashback visions, of the last few hours
Fluorescent lights, harsh and sterile
Recycled air, suffocating and stale
You brought this on yourself (it was all leading to this point)
You brought this on yourself (close your eyes, forget)

I hear you in these songs, echoes of you in those places
I see you looking back in other people's faces
Haunting me, you are haunting me and now you are
screaming for an apology

Turn around look at me
You want an apology
Well here I am
Here it is
I'm sorry

Believe in, nothing
You brought this on yourself

Now I have no purpose, no direction
No reason to keep on breathing
And hope is a mistake
But it's one that I keep making
Hope is a mistake
