Caleb Kluttz This was a wonderful start to a great band's success. I enjoy every single track and I love their debut album just as much as this one. Favorite track: Living Pieces (ft. Garret Rapp).

Track Name: This Wounded World
This is our apocalypse
The perfect moment to play the martyr
When rained down in arrogance
We built this on our own
This fire fills our lungs
Will we ever find the end of this?

And over time, we play this over and over
With every breath we take
And over time, we play this over and over
Is this the way that we will always live?

I have contemplated this
It's easy to resist the product of this broken gift
Will we sink or sail this ship?
Will we ever see the end of this?

And over time, we play this over and over
With every breath we take
And over time, we play this over and over
Is this the way that we will live?

Without these lungs to breathe
It’s alright, it’s alright
It's not air we need
It’s alright, it’s alright

Will we ever breathe again?
Track Name: The Replicant
These folded bones will hold this hull that we have founded
Well what is doubt when there is no such weight behind it?
My eyes have seen the reckoning that's held before me
It’s ours to bleed with everything that’s in our bodies
We have loved, and we have lost
Now tear it down and rebuild
Now tear it down

Find a way to rebuild what is broken
What’s fallen apart
Separate from these wounds that are open
We're stronger this way

Now I will find a reason why this ship is burning
It’s taking water and we will not be deserted
We have loved, and we have lost
Now tear it down
Pull it down and rebuild
With these hands we are wounded
We are strong enough this time

Maybe I don't need to breathe
Maybe I should just live my life like
I am dying one breath at a time
Maybe I should make believe
Saying that I can’t create
Anything worth my time
The world was really never mine
Maybe I should trade beliefs
Turning my back on all these things we’ve overcome
Maybe I don't need to breathe
Maybe I could just live my life like
I'm an echo of the obvious

Tear it, tear it down rebuild
Tear it, tear it down
Tear it, tear it down rebuild
Tear it, tear it down

Find a way to rebuild what is broken
What’s fallen apart (Fallen apart)
Separate from these wounds that are open
We're stronger this way
Find a way to rebuild what is broken
What’s fallen apart (Fallen apart)
Separate from these wounds that are open
We're stronger this way

Tear it, tear it down rebuild
Tear it, tear it down rebuild
Tear it, tear it down rebuild
Tear it, tear it down
Track Name: Living Pieces (ft. Garret Rapp)
It’s all in the way that I forget to feel
I could forget anything
With an idle mind, is ignorance divine?
Why the stake to the heart
Will we separate the arteries
From a heart that isn't clean enough for me?
Some say the serpents found its hole
One that some have always known
A place for me to call my own
And without ever letting go the burden

I look to the stars again
Will I find my place in this, or will I fold?
I look to the stars again
Will I believe, or will I fold?

Was it a feeling that has beaten me?
Some could state the reverie
We fall too far just to find the start
But I know I hold my place here in this world
What you leave behind you will always know
But I'm not ready for the days
These brittle arms to give away
And fail me once again
As I prepare for another quick charade
And I will not be buried
When time holds rhythm

I look to the stars again
Will I find my place in this, or will I fold?
I look to the stars again
Will I believe, or I will fold?

I find the walls collapsing
The treated burns the tormented
I know the fear will find us all
I find the walls collapsing
The treated burns, the tormented
Define your fate or believe in it

I look to the stars again (The stars again)
Will I find my place in this or will I fold?
I look to the stars again
Will I believe, or will I fold?
Track Name: The Lion, The Liar
With wounds, we will follow to battle
Fatigued and broken hearts
With words we find the perfect weapon
(The perfect weapon)
These mouths much stronger than swords
I know this will all come back to you
(Back to you)
I’ll try not to let you drown

We are the very same
We’re standing in the dark
(We are the waiting, the waiting)
And don't you wait for me
To waver in belief
(We all fall, but will we land on our…)

I feel as human as ever
With all my strengths and my, my defects here alike
I find it will all come back to you
But when you wait for me, we will not let you drown

We are the very same
We’re standing in the dark
(We are the waiting, the waiting)
And don't you wait for me
To waver in belief
(We all fall, but will we land on our feet?)

You’re only as great as what you give to the world
There’s so many ways to shape it
Yet so many ways to break it down
You’re only as great as what you give to the world
There are so many places love lives
Yet so many ways to let love in
Track Name: Of Gods And Monsters
Left are withered remains
Of but a broken dream
And I want to believe in sincerity
But I won’t be the one to watch the world around me
Crumble from beneath

Wait, remain
We fall too far to pick ourselves back up
Breathe, restrain
The worst is what we've made here for ourselves
Asphyxiated, born to be buried
But all will change unless we can clear the air

But I believe it
I wait alone
With all but hope to carry home

Left are withered remains of but a broken dream
(Start again, now believe in it)
And I want to believe in sincerity
(What is love without meaning?)
But I won’t be the one to watch the world around me
Crumble from beneath

Save your fame
For those of superficial regard
Wave your shame
For those bleed a weaker point
The sum of loss and love will bury us
I won’t allow the worms to find their home

But I believed it
I wait alone
With all my hope to carry home
Is there a reason to fight alone?
And can I thrive without my flaws?

Left are withered remains of but a broken dream
(Start again, now believe in it)
And I want to believe in sincerity
(What is love without meaning?)
But I won’t be the one to watch the world around me
Crumble from beneath

Open your eyes wide
The gallows below
Open your eyes wide
To the rope, to the rope again

Left are withered remains of but a broken dream
(Start again, now believe in it)
And I want to believe in sincerity
(What is love without meaning?)
But I won’t be the one to watch the world around me
Crumble from beneath
