Track Name: The Four Seasons Of Despair
N/A
Track Name: Spring
Happiness engulfes me,
Hugging me tightly.
I could get lost in your embrace,
I could get lost in your eyes.
I could get lost in your words,
I could get lost in your smile.

These feelings blossomed
like the brightest of spring flowers.
This joy overtaking me like the sun's penetrating rays.
No cloud could ever cast a lasting shadow over me.

I banked on your words,
Invested my whole life
In these silk-thin truths.
One wrong move,
One tiny slip,
And it all could come crashing down.

This spring rain comes
And the sunlight leaves,
Darkening this joy
That was deep inside me.
Our hands, once held together, fall away in the rain.
The thunder crashes and the thread breaks.

These feelings blossomed
like the brightest of spring flowers.
This joy overtaking me like the sun's penetrating rays.
No cloud could ever cast a lasting shadow over me.
Track Name: A Reason To Hope
You gave me a reason to hope.
You gave me a reason to live.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think anyone
Could make me feel like this.

But the sun cannot shine without the rain,
and the clouds will always come in spades.
While I still hoped,
Still hoped and dreamed,
These clouds snuck up on me,
Invaded me,
Infected me.

You gave me a reason to hope.
You gave me a reason to live.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think anyone
Could make me feel like this.

Even through the clouds the sunlight still provoked me,
Giving me reason to hope.
Through the torture,
Through the pain.
I walked with you,
but it was all in vain.

You gave me a reason to hope.
You gave me a reason to live.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think anyone
Could make me feel like this.
Track Name: Summer
Every day, every hour that I spent with you
Gave me a reason to live,
Gave me a reason to hope.
You were the sun that gave rise to my ambitions.
You made a time when no clouds could ever form.

The heat of the summer drove my heart insane,
Melting holes inside of me.
You left me thirsty, wanting more,
And in the end, you threw me away.

Countless days, countless hours
Spent in waiting, hesitation.
Hope had become an integral lie,
Leaving me destitute,
Somehow begging for more.

The heat of the summer drove my heart insane,
Melting holes inside of me.
You left me thirsty, wanting more,
And in the end, you threw me away.

Drops of sweat fell down in torrents,
Pools of hope evaporated.
When I needed you the most,
You took it all and threw it away.

The heat of the summer drove my heart insane,
Melting holes inside of me.
You left me thirsty, wanting more,
And in the end, you threw me away.

You left me hanging
On a noose of preservation
Keeping me alive just to kill me slowly,
Pounding the hopelessness deep inside of me.
Track Name: Crushed
I am crushed by this agony,
Crushed by the weight of your words.
So hopelessly tormented by you,
Crushed by the weight of my ignorance.

Your words were nothing but a lie,
Your smile, a haunting sign.
In your eyes, I saw hope.
Concerning me, you were dead inside.
Your heart turned to stone.
Playing with me,
All you ever did was play with me.

And I'm crushed by this agony,
Crushed by the weight of your words.
So hopelessly tormented by you,
Crushed by the weight of my ignorance.

You led me into this void,
Trapped me inside with your eyes.
Your words, like chains, wrapped solid around me.

And I held onto the lies,
Hoping for something more,
Wanting what could never be.
In the end, I was crushed by my lies.

I am crushed by this agony,
Crushed by the weight of your words.
So hopelessly tormented by you,
Crushed by the weight of my ignorance.
Track Name: Autumn
Laying on a bed of dead leaves,
Staring up at the sky
Through the naked branches.
Counting the stars,
Wishing you were here beside me.

Winter rings out on the breeze.
Distant, certain like my demise.
Your voice reverberates, hangs
On the wind, calling to me.
Begging me to stay, but your eyes,
Your eyes say otherwise.

Laying on a bed of dead leaves,
Staring up at the sky
Through the naked branches.
Counting the stars,
Wishing you were here beside me.

These days were the best days of my life.
Engraved in despair like a mesmerizing oasis.
I never was that happy,
I never was that sad.
So much anger and so much hope
Led to a climactic battle and my demise.

Laying on a bed of dead leaves,
Staring up at the sky
Through the naked branches.
Counting the stars,
Wishing you were here beside me.
Track Name: Perfected
Pushing away,
Always pushing me aside.
I care so deeply,
I care too much.
Like snow that has fallen
On New Year's Eve,
The innocence is long-gone,
Melted away.

Lies and hypocrisy
Made me who I am.
Years and years
Of never-ending betrayal.
But you made a difference,
You perfected the hatred inside of me.

The simplest of words
Spoke volumes to me.
The action, the sword.
The word, the cut,
You set into motion
This emotional war.

Lies and hypocrisy
Made me who I am.
Years and years
Of never-ending betrayal.
But you made a difference,
You perfected the hatred inside of me.
Track Name: Winter
Snow falls on the ground
Just like my heart fell when you told me
That you had no feelings for me.
This wind picks up blowing so hard,
Numbing my cheeks, my soul, my heart.
Bitterness and hatred ensue,
Walking alone on this cold Winter night.

There is a deep-set chill no coat can warm,
A deep-set glacier no sun could ever melt.
There is the toughest Winter
In my heart that Summer will never reach.

Ice breaks underneath my footfall,
Just like your lies broke my heart.
Pine trees whistle, calling to me,
Pleading with me, come back, come back.
If you wanted me this badly,
Why did you go and destroy me?
Animosity ensues,
walking alone on this cold Winter night.

Bitterness and hatred ensue,
Walking alone on this cold Winter night.

There is a deep-set chill no coat can warm,
A deep-set glacier no sun could ever melt.
There is the toughest Winter
In my heart that Summer will never reach.
Track Name: Your Death Is My Desecration
All this hate wrapped up inside of me
Is falling down on me like rain.
All this animosity is culminating in my demise.

You once were the only one that I lived for.
You once were the only one that I would have died for.
Now you rest in many pieces,
Now I live in agony.

All this hate wrapped up inside of me
Is falling down on me like rain.
All this animosity is culminating in my demise.

I once told you that I loved you.
I once told you, you were my friend.
Now we both rot, cold and lonely
In a grave of our own making.

All this hate wrapped up inside of me
Is falling down on me like rain.
All this animosity is culminating in my demise.

I was blinded by ignorance,
But your frozen stares and reproach
Brought me to my senses.
Now we both rot in a grave of our own making.

You told me that you loved me.
You told me that I was your friend.
You told me how much it meant for me to be with you.
Now we both lie rotting in a grave of our own making.

You stuck this knife in me so deep,
Twisted it just like a corkscrew.
Even though you left me hanging on a cross of desperation,
Your death, demise, is still, still my desecration.
Track Name: Lost And Found
Lost,
Falling into the abyss,
Grasping at everything,
Anything to save myself from this doom.

When all hope was gone,
You grabbed me by the hand,
And I thought,
I thought I was safe.

You pulled me up,
Led me into quicksand.
This was the end,
I died.
You buried me with the hypocrisy.

A mirage, a hologram.
You were not yourself,
And I failed to see that.

My last breath forsook me.
Falling, always falling into despair.

With the last ounce of energy,
I looked deep into this murky subterranean landscape.
I saw you sinking right along side me.
I knew that all was not lost,
Not unless I failed to act.

I reached out with my last ounce of energy,
you held on tight.
Together, still sinking, we at least had each other.

We had each other,
And that has made the passage all the more easy.

We were lost,
Now, now we are found.
