Track Name: Chain (Demo Ver.)
For as long as I remember you've been there
Draining me of colour, keeping me hushed and scared
Every word every tie every bond before I'd begun
I'm not strong enough for this, now I'm coming undone

Guilt and fear so fair
Hush this heartless care
Knowing no one's there
Flesh exposed and bare

[I am an illusion.]
Track Name: Bleeding Happy + Purposeful Destruction
Purposeful Destruction
So far from us
Track Name: Sweet Serene The Grave
in this darkened room
bundled in these sheets
silence of the fan
deficiency of white clouds
Sweet Serene (The Grave)
in this darkened room
bundled in these sheets
one pill in one hand
one excess from life away
Sweet Serene (The Grave)
in this darkened room
away from those warm sheets
one pill in the trash
the last resolute heart
The Grave Not Today
Track Name: The Failed Muse
