about

This EP pays homage to my childhood and teenagehood a lot, and the heavy guitars and screaming vocals make it worthwhile. William O'Brien did all the screaming, I (Benjamin) did all the guitars and clean vocals, and Charles Tobias wrote the compositions for Demons and Hollow. This took a lot of work and means a lot to me, and I want to give it away for free! Thank you to anyone who listens.

Track Name: Crimson
Red like the blood seeping down from her wrist
as she screams out for help
before she ends this

Thorns are surrounding her hollow heart
as she's beaten and tortured
and torn apart

Her petals are falling
Her leaves are dead
She self-destructed for so long
to kill there's nothing left

There’s a light in this tunnel
somewhere at the end
and I know I can show her
but she's blindfolded

It's hard to see the light
when you were born in the dark
Maybe not too easy to see
Oh-oh it's easier for me,
to show you than explain
The end to the pain
burn all the pages

She smells so good
It's a shame she hates herself
she's more beautiful
than anyone else

The lies just won't stop
The scars they won't either
So cut her down more
She'll cut even deeper

It's hard to see the light
when you were born in the dark
Maybe not too easy to see
Oh-oh it's easier for me,
to show you than explain
The end to the pain
burn all the pages

Roses are red
Veins are blue
While I lie here dying
I am thinking of you

As my arm turns crimson
and my world goes black
I fall asleep and dream
of never coming back

Thorns are surrounding her hollow heart
As she's beaten and tortured
And torn apart

The lies just won't stop
The scars won't either
So cut her down more
She'll cut even deeper

It's hard to see the light
when you were born in the dark
Maybe not too easy to see
Oh-oh it's easier for me,
to show you than explain
The end to the pain
burn all the pages

Burn, burn, burn all the pages
Burn, burn, burn all the pages
Track Name: Demons
Collateral damage
Is my last few years
Killing the innocent..

Something is crawling
From inside of me
And I might just let it win

Setting myself up
For failure
Watching as it works

Waging war on my own skin
Engaging self-destruct

I can't hide my demons anymore
(I'm praying)
Never knowing what I'm fighting for
(Still waiting)
I can't find the words to stay,
Or the strength to walk away,
I can't face my own life as my
Demons haunt me

My archetype has been defined
So many times by me

The irony in what I am
A paradox it seems

I am sick of being sick
Inside of my own head

I hate who I am
And I hate who I'm becoming

I can't hide my demons anymore
(I'm praying)
Never knowing what I'm fighting for
(Still waiting)
I can't find the words to stay,
Or the strength to walk away,
I can't face my own life as my
Demons haunt me

I hate who I am
And I hate who I'm becoming

I can't hide my demons anymore
Never knowing what I'm fighting for
I can't find the words to stay,
Or the strength to walk away,
I can't face my own life as my
Demons haunt me

I can't hide my demons anymore
(I'm praying)
Never knowing what I'm fighting for
(Still waiting)
I can't find the words to stay,
Or the strength to walk away,
I can't face my own life as my
Demons haunt me
Track Name: Mirage
It's like walking on glass
With no realization
There's blood on my feet
But I can't feel a thing

I breathe in the numbness
Accept my own weakness
As if that's not enough,
I can't help my mind

Dance with me,
Step this way and lose the night with me,
As if this weren't a dream!
Dance with me!
Just this one last time,
Before we open our eyes,
Make it seem like this isn't a dream.

I can't forgive you even though I've tried.
It keeps me up at night.

I don't feel,
Empathize,
Hate is all I have left.
I don't feel,
Empathize,
Pain is all I have left.

Dance with me,
Step this way and lose the night with me,
As if this weren't a dream!
Dance with me!
Just this one last time,
Before we open our eyes,
Make it seem like this isn't a dream.

How hard it must be to live with yourself
How hard it must be to live by yourself

Dance with me,
Step this way and lose the night with me,
As if this weren't a dream!
Dance with me!
Just this one last time,
Before we open our eyes,
Make it seem like this isn't a dream.
Track Name: Hollow
I see the anger swelling up in you
It shows the true colors of you
And as your smile fades away
All I can see is rage

You let your pain control you
Control your every move

Will I make it out of here
knowing who I am?
Or will I disappear?
I have so much to fear
Inside this hollow home

How am I to grow
When you're an imbecile
All you see is angst
You don't see me for me

Looking down on me
Must be so easy
For someone so self-righteous
But you're a fake to me

Will I make it out of here
knowing who I am?
Or will I disappear?
I have so much to fear
Inside this hollow home

Am I destined to
Sail into the dark?

Will I go alone
Or will I find
Someone on the way?

Am I destined to
Walk through life alone
Will I ever escape this empty home
This hollow home

Will I make it out of here
knowing who I am?
Or will I disappear?
I have so much to fear
Inside this hollow home

Am I destined to
Sail into the dark?

Will I go alone
Or will I find
Someone on the way?

Am I destined to
Walk through life alone
Will I ever escape this empty home
This hollow home
Track Name: Unstable
Never seemed to be what anybody
Claimed to need
Never didn't go against the grain

Devil's advocate
And now I'm dying over it
And there's no way that you will keep me from revenge

Take me away

There is nothing you can do
Run and hide
I will find you

I am here to show you your end
Because your end is where I begin

Take me to the end of times
And I will laugh hysterically
I dream to see the world go up in flames

Blood is what I seek
Until I find it I won't cease
And you can all thank yourselves
For the man I am today

Take me away

There is nothing you can do
Run and hide
I will find you

I am here to show you your end
Because your end is where I begin

In the end, you can't trust a thing they say
Or believe in anything
But you can trust and believe
That I will bring you pain

There is nothing you can do
Run and hide
I will find you

I am here to show you your end
Because your end is where I begin
