Track Name: rejoice
We are just what we were meant to
Our hopes were nothing but dope
Rejoice for what we have earned
It sure will be swollen by dust
There won’t be stories to tell
When all this memories fade

So be there and rejoice
Water will wash away the sins
So be there and rejoice
Track Name: no mercy
I’ve gone so far to reach you
That makes me the one to blame
Push always comes to shove
So hold it tight then let go

Oh boy, I’ve seen it often
I’m fully made of mistakes
Push always comes to shove

So hold it tight then let go
Let it go

There will be no mercy for non-believers
There will be no victory for the heathens
Track Name: the runner
Our acts are bound to shame
Our pleads will not be heard
Holy, yet no one cares
We failed to stand this ground

And why on earth do I care?

Father, please tell me why
Just why it feels so cold
Why, if my friends are here?
Why, if my hope is pure?
Why on earth do I bleed?
I just burn like a torch

Running for countless miles
And crawling right back to start
Falling for all my fucking life
Track Name: numbers
I never promised to be the one
to love you the way you are.
Your trial was pointless, as far as I know
we are two strangers lost in the crowd.

It feels damn wrong to be damn right
They just won’t love you for what you are
Don’t ride the circle, it’s best being out.
We hate this numbers.
