Track Name: Collapse
As i stand here, on this shoreline
Wondering why, why all of this is happening to me
The sea breeze presses against my face
As i ask when will i catch a break!

From all of this
My heart skips as my mind denys, i tell myself such dangerous lies

They say you have to stay strong
But how do we stay strong?
When everything we love collapses around us
Theres only so much a mind can take before it screams
Save me, save me from my mistakes

I need to be rescued

Im sinking fast my lungs feel like there about to collapse

Im drowning

My shallow breathe pulls at the waves
My heart is beating faster with every ounce of air i fail to take
My thoughts twist in my brain
A spin drift swept across the hull of a ship so rusted now the bow is starting to break.
My shallow breathe pulls at the waves
Im sinkin fast im sinkin fast im sinkiin fast
My thoughts twist in my brain
And my lungs feel like there about to collapse

As i stand here
On this shoreline, wondering why?
Why all of us this is happening to me
This cold front washes over my skin
Turn back the clock hands and show me where to begin.
Track Name: 25.06.15
Since that night your body left us
I find myself struggling with the thought of not seeing your infectious smile again

Why did you have to go so soon
There was so much left to give!
So many memories left to make,
But now your gone!

And im fighting these wars inside my mind trying to come to grips with the fact i may never see you face again
But i will push on cause i know you would hate to see me in the brittle broken state.

I feel the sadness wellowing inside my throat as i wrap my head around your wasted potential.
What could have been will now never be

I know one day we will be reunited together
But until then i must stay strong for you, for me
I miss you my brother
And i will never forget you!
