Track Name: Wanderlust
I waste my time on daydreams
Imagining a perfect world
But then my eyelids open
And I remember I am lost

I don’t know if my dreams are a waste of time
At least I’ve got something to hope for

Some call this dreaming
I call this hope

And even though this maybe a waste
No hope is a dead end anyway

I don’t know if my dreams are a waste of time
At least I’ve got something to hope for

These dreams I have, the days I waste
They’re the things in life, I’ll never forget
These dreams I have, the days I waste
They’re the things in life, I’ll never regret

Some call it dreaming
I call it hope

For years and years you told me
That I was wasting time
But now I stand here with my head held high
Accomplished more than you thought I would in life

You call this dreaming
I call this hope

And even though this maybe a waste
No hope is a dead end anyway
Track Name: Blindfold
You contort the truth
You believe the things you say
You know you are falling short
But still you keep on reciting
These lies, these devoted lies

You support these falsehoods
You adore your white lie

Your ways are twisted
The way you speak makes me sick
I lost count of all the times
You blinded the rest

Your ways are twisted
The way you speak makes me sick
You blinded the rest

But now I can make out the lies
I see where the filth took it’s part
I walked around like a blind man
But now my sight is more than free

I am so relieved I can see

Finally the blindfold fell
The rope won’t take my breath away

But now I can make out the lies
I see where the filth took it’s part
I walked around like a blind man
But now my sight is more than free

Finally the blindfold fell

I see through your fucking lies
I see through your lies
Track Name: Chasing Me Home
This is the place I have always loved
This is my home and I refuse to let this go

A place I loved, a place I feared
A place once lost, now I see
To some empty room
Loose investments of rich

Days and days and days of good fun
End up lost and gone

A brighter day, a brighter future
No hour that was a waste

Oh, I hold this in my heart
The days of my youth

Not as dark as nowadays
The days of my eternal youth
Not as dark as nowadays

Burned my house down, you shoved it all away
I’ve been away for some time now
But I still remember those days
The memories, they haunt me at night
They’re chasing me back home

The memories, they chase me home
They’re chasing me back home
The memories, they chase me home
Track Name: Let Go
I’ve tried to write this off but my words lack truth
Without comparison, the lines begin to blur
The lines, they begin to blur

These words I put on paper, have no meaning at all
They’re just a waste of ink
Day after day
Night after night
I‘ve tried to write this off but I see no difference

I can hardly breathe
Trapped inside
Locked out

I feel so burned up, I feel so let down
I’m at the end of my days

I won’t be home
'Til my bones turned to stone
'Til my flesh turned to dust
I’ll watch this earth getting torn apart by rust

I won’t be home, I won’t be home
'Til my name is set in stone
