Track Name: Prevention Of Silence
Lets skip the pleasantries
You know why we're here today
to give back a voice to those who need it the most

to give back a voice to you, on your final day could you say you are proud
of the mark you left on the world
Would you be proud...

Would you be proud of the man that you became and the love and compassion you left on this earth and all your wisdom learnt
and never let your mind. be clouded by the cynical thoughts. forever creeping. in the back of your head.
I know the feeling..
The feeling of self regret
you will always struggle.
but you will always persevere

I can't comprehend
Your expectations on me
I won't flow the stream
I'd give anything
I just want to be me
In my world of self happy
no expectations on who I am (who I am)
No judgment
No insecurities
Just pure happiness
Track Name: Ohana
The wisest man once said,
Shooting stars leave no mark but when I'm done in this world my presence will be embedded
In the hearts and minds of all I cherish and love now, and with these words I'll show you how much I value all you are.

I can't believe my eyes have been closed shut for so long now (Its time to open our eyes and see) the potential we hold
Together we write a whole new chapter

upon the conquers and the consequences
Everything you preached to me and all these things have molded me to be the man that stands before you today

I thank you for the gift of never ending love

I owe you everything my creators,
my dear parents I thank you for the gift of never ending love and acceptance
How can I return it all back to you

no matter how big my dreams
I'll keep my feet firmly on the ground
No matter how big my dreams
I'll keep my feet firmly on the ground
On the ground

I can't believe my eyes have been closed shut for so long now Its time to open our eyes... and see
It's time to open our eyes and see

upon the conquers and the consequences
Everything you preached to me and all these things have molded me to be the man that stands before you today
I thank you for the gift of never ending love...
Track Name: Steve French
Bitch
I guess all good things really end
Now it's done was it really worth it?
I hope karma destroys all your ambitions

Nothing is eternal as poetry or a song
so I'll make this one out to you
And maybe then these words will get through

does it hurt to know that you lost me?
what was it like to meet your downfall?
having all your secrets come undone
the only comfort that you'll know..
Sobbing alone with your hands in your head
I hope you are just as broken
As for him. Son, you are Nothing
Nothing but a fucking joke to us

Your damn right an apology won't fix this at all
I bare a broken heart and this will mend it
I wish you nothing but the worst in this world
You will both get whats coming to you
And at the end of the day I know that I stayed true
spineless.
Spineless fucking bitch
Grow the fuck up
Grow the fuck up
Track Name: The Cat Piano
The condensation on my lenses has finally cleared
revealing everything,
This place no longer feels like home
all I need is you my, my friends, my second family
Let's escape this place and leave behind all broken memories and when we're done will look back on this place and just laugh with satisfaction perminit on our faces
I can't and won't do this without you so believe me when i say let's conquer it all

My brothers we must find a way out of this horrible place I've come to realize time is against us all
And I'm not letting myself or us waste away in this colorless backbiting place

drones content with having no ambitions
They'll only think back on what they could have been
I never want that life I only want to live my dreams

Change your thoughts and you can change your world

Broaden your horizons

There's nothing here worth fighting for
My best was never good enough
Time is the only mortal enemy
Standing in my fucking path

We will never be defeated
we will stand our ground
(Stand our ground)
we will conquer our dreams
And be the ones left standing proud

together we stand
With our dreams and aspirations
There's no looking back
It's time to make a stand
And be proud
Its time to make a stand
And be proud
together we stand
With our dreams and aspirations
There's no looking back
It's time to make a stand
And be proud
Track Name: Warped Walls
Emptiness, once again.
These fears of hatred tear me down,
They consume me in my loathing (and desperation)

When will it all be the same again,
Take me back to when i felt nothing,
Nothing but regret.

How long will you wait?
Until you feel numb again?

I only have this heart with scars and bruises.
I only wish this heart was nothing but true.
Take me for nothing but a fool,
As i have failed you once again.
All i ask of you, is to care and stay true.

I will never be the same again.
Iv'e let you down.
Iv'e let you down.
I will never be the same.
I will never be the same.
Iv'e let you down, once again.

But i know these walls that we shall face (We will overcome)
These walls iv'e built and created.
There's nothing more i want than for these walls to cave in.
So we can no longer hide from ourselves.

There's not one thing i would not do,
Than to make everything okay.
You are my world (my life) and everything more that i can't explain.
When will it all end?
Set me alight, watch me burn, and set me free.
Set me free.
Set me free.

These walls of sadness, we have overcome.
These scars and bruises, we have overcome.

I will never be the same again.
Track Name: Epitaph
Looking back on life through a time line
writing my last journal
alone in solitude I reminisce on my past
perpetual emptiness.
After all these years with you
I’m all alone again

every second, every minute, every hour. the clock strikes away
my days are numbered
soon too lay in a hole dug in the ground (withering away)
above a stone marking my name and my last fucking words
but there’s a lifetime of stories I’ll take with me beyond this grave
and ill cherish each and every second that I spent with you

I can still picture them all now (such beautiful faces)
my family, my friends and the women loved
if only it was an endless dream state
I wouldn’t have to burden your passing

my life filled with pure happiness, here without you I feel so alone

Above a stone marking my name and my last fucking words
but there’s a lifetime of stories I’ll take with me beyond this grave
and ill cherish each and every second that I spent with you

all I’ve ever loved gone and obsolete
however time still carries on for me
no matter what the joy in life
we’re all equally the same
but cold and alone I’ll be singing this song

all I’ve ever loved gone and obsolete
however time still carries on for me
no matter what the joy in life
we’re all equally the same
but cold and alone I’ll be singing this song.
