about

'Broken Lives' is our second release, First Album. Writing started as soon as the release of our EP, and a couple months later, we had an albums worth of material, and plane tickets to California. This album encapsulates many different sides of post-hardcore and metalcore. We worked on this for more than a year if you count the writing process, so please, enjoy.

Track Name: A Mind Is a Terrible Organ to Shovel
If you're not with us, then you're against us. And if you're against us, then we're against you. We're taking over. Nothing can stop us now.

I see you trying so hard, trying to break me down. I've got a few words to say to you, I'm not leaving now.

Our reign has just started. Just wait, soon you'll see. By the time this track is over, you'll be wishing you were me.

Washed up, you will be. It's not that hard to see. You're the shadow of your father, because you left her like all of the others.

I've got my eyes on you!
Track Name: Department of Homeland Obscurity
I could see it coming from one hundred miles away. Your heart is closing in on mine, making a beeline for me. And it's growing on the horizon. It's growing.

I saw it coming. I'll always be broken or break others. What do others lives show that ours don't? Nobody wins. In life, nobody wins. No one has a destiny, no one has a purpose. You have to make one for yourself. And I've had trouble with that. It chills my bones to think she has no will to live. What if I can't find a light? What if I can't find a light?

I'm looking for the spotlight, because I want to sell myself for money. Does that make me a whore? Does that make me a whore? Paint me up, paint me up, with your makeup.

I've been walking around searching for love, and all I found was your heart. Now, what good would that do me? Now I'm just now seeing that it was her. She was the one that I concurred; really mattered. I've lost my chance and it won't be back for awhile. Let me go, to free myself from the stress of life. Three crowds I've gone through, searching for you. You made the error, you were at fault. You made the fucking error, and yet my mind is at fault. Write it in my will, if I shall be layed on table, don't give my heart to her.
Track Name: Hold It, Moltvic
As I count the arches down your back, I think maybe this won't be the same. Alas you'll think less of me when I spend my night with her. I never gave it one thought, except when you remind me of the fact that we're supposed to fucking last.

And just because I've made a few mistakes, you have to fuck. To hurt me is insane. I'm the one who brought you here. I can always look at you the same, but can you say the same to me? Let's hope so...

Don't throw me off course, I'm on the path to salvation. I'm not religious, but I'll hang you up and tear you down like it's nothing. Windy nights pass quick, I'm a garbage-disposal boy, my god it happened again.

You were the first to hurt me, and I didn't even hurt you. The first one to hurt me, and I didn't even touch you. The first one to hurt me, I guess they're getting payback, 'cause you're the one out of six times I didn't doubt.

Well, maybe with you, but who's to say it was real? Once you had my heart, you realized someone else had yours, and now I'm stuck and fucked on the railroad track, like a sitting duck waiting to be shot. I'm not getting better, I have high hopes that you'll find me, wash me off, and show me what I want.

Show me all of your secrets, before my eyes. You are that which I know I could never despise. I want you to be something I would sacrifice for. I can't say I've had that. Please feel free to consume my life.

Rip the headphones out of my ears! I can't stand listening to your voice anymore. Every fucking lyric reminds me of you. You're the reason I gave them a chance, but all I wanted was to chance my luck with you. You were the reason I got better.
Track Name: Louder Than Words
Waves crash upon the shore. It reminds me of the day you tried to walk out the door. I've never lashed out like this before. But next thing I knew, you were lifeless on the floor. The knife was still in my hand. Blood dripped from the tip of the blade; the image still in my head. I gave you one last kiss on your breathless red lips.

All I ever did was love you, and in the end, you walked away. All I did was care about you, and you never gave a fuck about me. I don't ever want to be in love again. No, never, never again. I said it once, and I won't say it again. We'll never be friends. I don't want to fall in love again!

Clawing at the ground. You're going six feet under now. Guess they were right when they said actions speak loud. Louder than...louder than words. Tattoo your body with my name, so the whole world knows I did it. I loved you more, I loved you the most. Hopefully you'll never, you'll never forget it. Don't act like you don't know what I'm telling you. Cherish your last few seconds, 'cause when I find my knife, you'll be saying your last goodbyes.

I know I never said a thing, but if words spoke as loud as actions, I'd be the loudest boy!

Sitting with a pen and paper, the tale of who refrained from lust's demanding orders won't stop. Broke into my mind with one single goal. To take my wrist and make it yours. A commodity to be sold.

Actions speak louder than words.
Track Name: I Ain't Callin' You a Truther
If only those summers ago, I ever had the chance to be the better man. I would have taken it, but alas I did not. Reminiscing about those times when I was fine.

I yelled and screamed on the floor, which is all I seem to do anymore.

Because when you got up and tossed me aside, you tossed my entire life out the door. But these streets couldn't separate us. Fifteen minutes away, I found another place that I made. A place that I made!

Without you I clung to something. I discovered all the things that made me, me. So this was for the best, with a second look it isn't hard to see. Look at your legs, look what I've done. I never knew, because you never spoke up.

Because when you got up and tossed me aside, you tossed my entire life out the door. But these streets couldn't separate us. Fifteen minutes away I found another place that I made. A place that I made!

As we dug deeper, I saw you revealing more about our past. Things I wouldn't have ever guessed, and I wasn't angry, but now I can't take it back.

Now I know everything, and I can't take back what I did. How I did the same to you that you did to me. I was ignorant of the love I had, 'til I didn't have it. Now, I'm just hoping, one day, I can take that back.

But not everything turns out right. Sometimes you have to sacrifice yourself a million times, before you fight the right fight. Life isn't fair! You may never regain your happiness. That feeling that your self-worth is deplorable. It's not false! You have to deal!
Track Name: Round to the Nearest Hundredth
Chosen at random, to start out a life of despair. I'm just a man, broken beyond repair. A noose around my neck, should I kick the chair? You can trust me, don't make me swear.

I'd rather know that I'm a failure than pretend that I'm a winner.

People protest and say that I'm a sinner. Call up the minister, but first, please, buy me dinner.

I never wanted any of this. Somehow I just got caught in the mix. I never thought it would come to this, but now I'm knee deep inside of it.

Nightmares, they haunt me so. The therapist says to "go with the flow." And soon it will end, it'll all just go. But hey, what the fuck does he know? I don't believe a word any of you say. I'm on my own, and that's how I'll stay. Fuck this place, maybe I'll come back in May. But for now, I think I just need some time away. "Don't text, don't call." Not that any of you care at all. I'm sure you're all having a ball, but I'll still be here, standing tall. I'm starting to watch my back. All of my accomplishments sit on a shelf. Yet I still feel, I still feel invisible, just a crack in the sidewalk.

For now I'm just lonely, and staying pathetic. Maybe I just have to find a new method. But I still try to create my own aesthetic.

They all say I'm a failure.
Track Name: Lost Cause
I fucking trusted you. Now I can't even look at you. All those nights, sleepness nights, now will only be defined by the look that you give me when I walk by. Can't pretend I want to live this out 'til the end. We can't just be friends. We have to be forever apart.

I fucking trusted you. Now I can't even look at you. And if there were a time that I could pass by, and the thought of the wench you were wasn't resurected, maybe I could live life just fine. But you'll always be a lie; love will never be the truth.

One! Two! Three! Four!

If given three tries, Im sure on the third try, you'd still choose our demise. I'm not treating this as all just a dream. I see what you are. You openly knew you were slitting your own wrists with your deceit. So take this blade to your arm, and I'll have no resignation of the thought.

I fucking trusted you. Now I can't even look at you. And if there were a time where I could pass by, and the thought of the wench you were wasn't resurected, maybe I could live life just fine. But you'll always be a lie; love will never be the truth.

If given three tries, I'm sure on the third try, you would still choose our demise. Let me tell you baby, the pain is the only thing that keeps me going. Keeps me going. If given three tries, I'm sure on the third try, you would still choose our demise. Let me tell you baby, the pain is the only thing that keeps me going. Keeps me going!

Did you ever hold me as tight as the blade? Do you know ever scar is another letter packed away? Now there's only way that we can sympathise. The aching of our skin, to scratch until we bleed, and infect ourselves with the poison of human nature one last time. You make me feel like nothing, but a lost cause.
Track Name: The New Saints
What have I become? I am a desolate soul. I am on my own, destined to be alone. Where am I? Trapped in a world of hate. I see no point in going on any longer. This is not what I intended on. This is not what I based my life upon. I'm trying so hard, to be something. I'm trying so hard, to be unforgotten. But every time I look at myself, in the mirror, I see nothing. I see nothing at all. So this is what it's like, to be invisible. So this is what it's like, to live among the ghosts.

Out of sight, out of mind. I've failed myself. I'm nothing but a letdown. Where do I go from here? I guess I'm just sinking. I'm just fucking sinking.

What's the point of living if I have nothing to live for? I'm alright with being wrong, but this shit has got to end soon. It never goes away. That's why I always write the same damn song. I've got people standing by me. Why do I feel so alone? I've got people who care for me. Yet I'm fucking alone.

Everywhere I look, people have it worse than me.

Broken people with broken lives. I feel like a waste of space, such a waste of time. But I realize I'm just as fucked as the rest of the human race. We're the new saints; the nuisance. We've lost a life long battle.

We surrender, I surrender. We give up, I give up.
Track Name: What You Mistake for Madness
What have you done with yourself? You're not the god that you claim to be. I'm a failure, just like you, I've just learned to play the role better. You're nothing but a fiend. We are the ones guiding you.

Intermission break; I walk through the halls of my own faults. And I can't help but to see, the only one to blame is me. And I'm just like everybody else. I've sold myself for you and you can't handle that. Come to terms with the facts!

Insult after immature insult. When will you ever learn? The tables have turned. We run shit now. You will not hold me back. I refuse to allow you to hold me down. You won't be the object of my defeat. I will destroy you.

Seeing all the actions I've claimed as my own, they're falling right in front of my eyes. I can't help but love something I've made, but my life has become a screwed up endless rut of scenarios, built by the monster I've become.

You've been pressing your luck with every single block you've knocked down. And soon you'll realize not everyone will pull strings for you, their entire life. People have a breaking point, a breaking point. A breaking point!

Favor the right side, or you'll scrape against the ones who hold your life in their hands. This isn't the way to set examples. I guess some never learn. You need to change your game. You're getting old.

Seeing all the actions I've claimed as my own, they're falling right in front of my eyes. I can't help but love something I've made, but my life has become a screwed up endless rut of scenarios, built by the monster I've become.

You're barking up the wrong motherfucking tree.

You're already dead inside. Give it up, give it up. Everyone has left you behind. Give it up. You're already dead inside. Give it up, give it up. Everyone has left you behind. I'm a hypocrite. I can't leave behind the most trivial things that never meant anything to me. Hand's struck twelve, it's time for you to say "goodbye." The things you thought were yours are now mine.
