Track Name: Friend (The "How-To" Guide)
You are a drain on my life, hell bent on the depletion of my overall morale. I'm delving deeper just to find a way to stray away from this empty void. I am lacking a firm grasp of my thoughts at this moment but I'm pretty sure if this was it I would be completely fine.
Track Name: Optical
This force, equal to nothing, it doesn't speak, it doesn't feel, now you're alone, alone and blind, left to exist, but only slightly. It doesn't help. that you'll never. when it stops. calm down. It will stop, eventually, be mindful that it will be back.
Track Name: Relate
I don't want to relate to you, I'd just like to move on, I don't want to relate to you, that won't help at all.
Track Name: Breached
Run away, run away from everything, everything that's possible to swell the minds of your precious little clones, wouldn't want a thing to go wrong. It would be so nice to leave all of this behind, but that's easier said than done, now i can sit back, with my worries out of my head, but you always seem to come back, please let me know if you're coming back.
Track Name: Gain
Why did i ever let you in? Why did i let you get to know me? I knew this wouldv'e ended badly. i knew you wouldv'e lost interest quickly. Not all pain is gain. I let my shields down and unfortunately, you became something important in my life.
Track Name: Filth
I used to live on the sun, i never got out all that much, i went blind at the age of nine, i never felt so divine, I went back home, no one was there, I stayed inside, petrified. She blocked the door, so i couldn't leave, but i knew that i had to try. We are all filth. Why can't i see anything? What is happening to me?
