RobSiab Passionate vocals, memorable melodies and punchy drums produce a very tight melodic sound. I have been on a melodic hardcore roll recently and this is one of the albums I keep jamming daily! Favorite track: Fighting Within.

Track Name: Shattered Wrists
Chance after chance I have given back
Everything you ever gave to me
I’m sick of looking at myself
Through the eyes of a broken man

Night after night drinking myself to death
Thinking how to escape what makes me me
This must be my destiny
God I fucking hate you

After everything we have done
Throughout this life together
It has come undone
But I will never forget the times
You said you loved me
(I will never forget the times)
You said you needed me
(You said that you needed me)
It was all a lie

Just look how far I have fallen from this life
Now you want to bring me back,
Bring me back to my feet
I’m pushing and pulling with shattered wrists

I’ve got pictures of places I’ll never go back
So keep your weak wrists and colored past
With the last thing that you say
I hope you choke on the words and never look back

And I swear until that day
I’ll never look back
(I’ll never look back)
And I swear until that day
I’ll never look back
(I’ll never look back)

When another day’s time cannot suffice our own unrest
With every breath expelled we leave ourselves behind
Just like everything forever in the past
For what it’s worth, it’s the price we pay
Track Name: Held To The Torch
Chance after chance I have given back
Everything you ever gave to me
I’m sick of looking at myself
Through the eyes of a broken man

Night after night drinking myself to death
Thinking how to escape what makes me me
This must be my destiny
God I fucking hate you

After everything we have done
Throughout this life together
It has come undone
But I will never forget the times
You said you loved me
(I will never forget the times)
You said you needed me
(You said that you needed me)
It was all a lie

Just look how far I have fallen from this life
Now you want to bring me back,
Bring me back to my feet
I’m pushing and pulling with shattered wrists

I’ve got pictures of places I’ll never go back
So keep your weak wrists and colored past
With the last thing that you say
I hope you choke on the words and never look back

And I swear until that day
I’ll never look back
(I’ll never look back)
And I swear until that day
I’ll never look back
(I’ll never look back)

When another day’s time cannot suffice our own unrest
With every breath expelled we leave ourselves behind
Just like everything forever in the past
For what it’s worth, it’s the price we pay
Track Name: Fighting Within
Sometimes the hardest fight is the one we self-impose
Between where we stand, and where we stand to be
Just like most of us, I’m scared to take the first step
It’s always the greatest distance we must face
And always will be
(You should know, I think you should know)

But you should know by now
I won’t live for you
I will not falter
I will not fall
But you should know that by now
You’ve told yourself before
How many times?
Before your breath runs short

My world just falls on deaf ears
You’re selling yourself short
Don’t hold your breath
Don’t follow suit

I thought you said you’d be there
You get what you deserve
I thought you said you’d be there
(I thought you said)
I’ve lost all my respect

I took a deep breath
And listened to the old bray of my heart
I am, I am, I am

I’ve always been stuck in this constant fight
Between the difference in heart and mind
I have no patience for these weights chained to my feet
They will soon pull me under to the depths

And I exhale and now I know
It’s a bitter taste
But at least you know you’re living
Track Name: I Exist
My calls fell unanswered by the voice, the voice of hollowed lungs
Eyes that have pieced my flesh and bones to nest in my heart
We all are those sinking silently
We all are slipping through the cracks
No one can save me
Track Name: Aperture
A call un-wavered
Steadfast we hold, amass your arms around my ribs

Amass your arms around my ribs, cut through my sternum
Pull out my chest
Pull out my chest

My disgust is fueled by love of which is cast in stone
My disgust is fueled by love

All faithful hearts venom spattered in cold
Now I swear you feathered with hope

I see unrest behind the eyes of so many
Brought forth by so many lies
But this injustice won't go undone
The weight of your actions won't break your fall now

I won't let you step down on me
Step down on me

We search for the answers

Our world is burning and we hold our own accelerant
We search for the answers, a hope to hold
Track Name: Betrayed
After all that I’ve given you
You’ve turned around and betrayed me
How could I not see this coming?
You were everything to me

I can not live with myself
I cannot let this get to me
I can not forgive you
You were everything to me
