Track Name: Hard Luck (Intro)
Hard luck still follows me everywhere I turn.
Track Name: Keep Dreamin'
I can't focus in on what is real,
I need time to think, and more time to feel.
Separate or suffocate inside your words,
Sunk into my sympathy, never to be heard.

I gave this my all,
Still I descend,
People kept talking,
You couldn't wait for my end.

I spent the last three years in this state of mind,
With hate for the world, you left me behind,
Stay in my way, and I'll stay the same,
But I'm afraid your hand in mine was only dead weight.

I gave this my all,
Still I descend,
People kept talking,
You couldn't wait for my end,

I've seen a lot of people scheming,
Intertwining angels and demons,
I believe my thoughts and words could relieve a cruel world,
you told me to 'keep dreamin'.
Track Name: Steel Weight
Lessons learned,
I felt the burns,
Hard luck still follows me everywhere I turn,
You made this up,
Turned time upside down,
I got a hundred more problems when my feet hit the ground

Broken and bruised,
You'd never last in my shoes,
Your ways with holding me down,
It seemed like nothing new,
Threw this away,
I lie in the waste,
A likened mind to be scarred and chafed,
You forced your steel weight,
Heavy on my chest,
Never thought your crooked ways would cause such distress,
Never felt a weight such as this,
Finished me, with an open fist.

Never lift this up, never let this be,
'Cause I feel the fucking world will never cease for me.
Track Name: Dust of Time
Failure's found me so I speculate that there is just no use,
Why can't you get a fucking clue?
I'll put your whole world in a fucking noose.

I've grown so tired and bleak,
I drag my feet, every time I attempt to speak,
People believe the lies they're sold,
I grow old, what I touch will never turn to gold,

I'd teach the world, but I have no plans,
Now I pray for rest with my folded hands,
I'd teach the world, but I have no plans,
Now I pray for rest with my folded hands.

Dust of time, send me off to sleep,
Rest my bones, forever more.
