First off, if you're reading this...thank you for taking the time to give us a listen. We truly appreciate it! We are a band from the Western PA area. As a band, we try to put our own spin on the metalcore genre by taking inspiration from a wide array of acts. This band is our passion and we couldn't be more excited to write new material and hopefully make a splash someday in the scene. -BTC ... more

Track Name: Riptide
OH!

As I sit here and wonder "What's my purpose in this life?"
Do I just try to get by, or end it all tonight?
These thoughts in my head, how can I think things through
Is there anybody out there? I need an answer from you

I've been here this whole time (this whole time)
Already paved the way
This is a chance for you to make a change (make a change)
There is a plan for you, no need to live in fear (live in fear)
But you fooled yourself, when the answer was so clear

Oh God, why is this happening? I can't think straight (I can't think straight)
Can't you see what I mean? This is all a blur
Is it me? Can it be? God, I need you now

I've been here this whole time
Already paved the way
This is a chance for you to make a change (make a change)
There is a plan for you, no need to live in fear (live in fear)
But you fooled yourself, when the answer was so clear

Fooled yourself when the answer was so
CLEAR!

I've been here this whole time
Already paved the way
This is a chance for you to make a change
MAKE A CHANGE!

There is a plan for you, no need to live in fear
But you fooled yourself, when the answer was so clear (the answer was so clear)

I've been here this whole time
Already paved the way (paved the way)
This is a chance for you to make a change (make a change)
There is a plan for you, no need to live in fear (live in fear)
But you fooled yourself, when the answer was so clear (the answer was so clear)
Track Name: Echoes and Shadows
Whispers in the dark, remind me of a past that's haunted me
Echoes and shadows are all around me
Taking over my body, transforming me into something I'm not
I don't know how much longer I can take it
Surely it's not long
(Surely it's not long)

It's like these days, they never end
Everyone around me is gone
I would rather be dead, but you're still here for me when
All hope is lost (hope is lost)
Help me find my light (find my light)

How many voices can I hear before it drives me insane?
Every word resonates deep within my brain
Killing me with the thought of release
I'd give it all for one shot at peace (x2)

It's like these days, they never end
Everyone around me is gone
I would rather be dead, but you're still here for me when
All hope is lost (when all hope is lost)
Help me find my light (help me find my light)
Track Name: Bury the Truth
I feel the weight of the world crashing down on me
I'm being crushed by the truths that I'm forced to speak
Whoa-oh, Whoa-oh, Whoa-oh

GO!

Where does it end? Where does it all end?
Truth and lies the same meaning
How can I run? How can I speak?
How can I run with the weight of the world crashing down on me

GO!

What was the thought running through your head
When you buried the truth deep inside your chest?
Would you let it all out? Or dig in deep?
This is your last chance to say what you think

Will you ever believe in the words you said
If you bury your heart in the graves you've made?
I'm in over my head
This pain needs to end!
Needs to end!

Buried by truth, burdened by all that you do
Will I find a peaceful release? Will I ever say what I think?
Where is the meaning? Where did your life go?
You had a grip on things, but now you don't know
Push it down deep inside, you have precious time to live your life
Track Name: Make Every Moment Last
I second guess every breath that comes from my chest,
Because things like this don't always work out for the best

Release your demons, put all your pain in the past
For every broken heart that comes your way,
Make every moment last, Make every moment last

We all make mistakes, but you've gotta hold on to what is right
This isn't an ordinary game this is fight or flight
And I know that things won't always work out in the end but,
Believe in yourself, trust no one else, keep moving on

Release your demons, put all your pain in the past
For every broken heart that comes your way,
Make every moment last, Make every moment last

Release your demons, put all your pain in the past
For every broken heart that comes your way

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-oh (x4)

Release your demons, put all your pain in the past
For every broken heart that comes your way,
Make every moment last, Make every moment last

Release your demons! Release your demons! Release your demons!
Track Name: Desperation
OH!

This disease is taking over
Another day of endless pain
If I could escape it all,
I'd find a way, I'd find a way!

I'm holding on to what I can, taking each day step by step
I'll find the strength to carry on
You can't hold me back, I'll never give in
This is my last chance to make amends
Forever, I will fight for my life

FIGHT FOR MY LIFE!

I can't take this anymore
These nightmares are a living hell
How can I live a life of joy when I'm trapped inside this cell?

I'm holding on to what I can, taking each day step by step
I'll find the strength to carry on
You can't hold me back, I'll never give in
This is my last chance to make amends
Forever, I will fight for my life

This disease is taking over
Another day of endless pain
How can I live a life of joy when I'm trapped inside this cell?
(Trapped inside this cell)

I'm holding on to what I can, taking each day step by step
I'll find the strength to carry on
You can't hold me back, I'll never give in
This is my last chance to make amends
Forever, I will fight for my life

Fight for my life! Fight for my life!
