Track Name: Room 95
Room 95

Locked away in a place I can't escape
I am here to stay with the things I can't erase
It's dark, It's cold
A mind of it's own
Alone in this room called home sweet home
Track Name: Dear Anonymous
Dear Anonymous

Dear anonymous
I have something to get off my chest tonight
I must confess your ignorance has left me dead inside
Face to face
In a crowded room on your judgement day
You'll know my name
What I think of you and what you took from me

Suffer the feeling you've brought to my family through
An empty bottle when you reached the bottom
When you took the wheel for a drive
You took her will to live her life

You'll never know
How much it hurts me that she's never coming home
Thinking she was in the hands of safety
You snuck past such an innocent baby
Oh my god
This hate has filled my lungs
Where was your sense of right and wrong?
Sixteen years young is gone

How could this of happened?
There's only one thing that I've learned
I'll judge you by your actions
'Cause I'm not a fool for your words
How little they mean when it's a little too late
It's taken everything to hold me back from my own mistake

You'll never know
How much it hurts me that she's never coming home
Thinking she was in the hands of safety
You snuck past such an innocent baby
Oh my god
This hate has filled my lungs
Where was your sense of right and wrong?
Sixteen years young is gone

This is me pouring my heart out
I'll show the world who you are now

Dead
Dead to me
You are so fucking dead
But in reality you're the one still living
Track Name: The Truth Unknown
The Truth Unknown

We were blind to the truth unknown
While you were living a life untold
Being so young
And having fought for so long

What was temporary
Has made a mark on the youth of many
Ones that will hide
And ones who never tried to survive
It's the wasted years of the wasted youth
Who are told the pretty lies instead of the truth

We were blind to the truth unknown
While you were living a life untold
Being so young
And having fought for so long
What was desperation had left no hesitation
Searching for an exit
And giving up your entire existence

Time is such a valuable thing
But why does so much of it go missing?
As we watch it slip away
From the hands that have kept it safe
We're led a stray
Thinking we're not worth saving

All along

We were blind to the truth unknown
While you were living a life untold
Being so young
And having fought for so long
What was desperation we have no hesitation
Searching for an answer
And giving up your entire existence

If I could take back every thought that you were thinking
I'd place them in that grave where you are laying
I'd place them in that grave where you are laying
If only I could turn back what you were thinking
Track Name: Enemy
Enemy

You said you were my best friend
But you will never see my face again

You play the victim like no one's listening
The kind of person with secrets buried deep
And I know you're never coming clean
This hate is growing
It's growing inside of me

It's on the tip of my tongue
This bitter taste of all who you've become
And now that the tables have turned
When will you learn that this wasn't worth the risk

You're just the same as everyone else
A backstabbing pretender that I'll always remember
And while there's no one left to blame but yourself
I'll keep your name in my mouth forever

Fuck your excuses
They are so useless
No you won't be missed
Because the thought of you just makes me fucking sick

It's on the tip of my tongue
This bitter taste of all who you've become
And now that the tables have turned
When will you learn that this wasn't worth the risk

Life is short so go ahead and live
But I'll be damned if these words are left unsaid
This is the end my friend
Enemy it's only the beginning
Track Name: Anchored
Anchored

I don't know who you think you are by now
But what I know is that you've gone too far this time around
Caught in the eye of the storm
Is where I come to find out
That I was yours and you were mine
But not only mine now
For quite some time now

You brought out the worst in me
Revealing everything
All the things left to haunt me
I saw the truth in you coming through
Concealing something new
Something you were holding onto

Like an anchor tied to my ankle
I'm falling faster getting pulled under
I won't sink without a fight
You will see me survive
Can you believe this is the fight in me?
Now that I see that you are coming clean

You brought out the worst in me
Revealing everything
All the things left to haunt me
I saw the truth in you coming through
Concealing something new
Something you were holding onto

Reap what you sow
It always comes back to you

You brought out the worst in me
Revealing everything
All the things left to haunt me
I saw the truth in you coming through
Concealing something new
Something you were holding onto
