Track Name: Holy Wars
Mirror watches all that you don't see
All you choose to forget
Reflects it back to me
In memories of troubled days

And yes I have a choice
To leave before it hurts
To take back my own voice
But for now I'll, for now I'll

Hold on to my, hold on to my soul
Before you take it away, take it away
Hold on to my, hold on to my soul
Before you take it away, take it away

You believe your intentions have been pure
Regrets, you have none
Relationships, unsure
Won't listen to what others say

You expect me to mend your sores
While you take up your post
And fight your holy wars
For a god who's never once been there

Hold on to my, hold on to my soul
Before you take it away, take it away
Hold on to my, hold on to my soul
Before you take it away, take it away

Innocence has been lost
Consequence has found
Its way into my heart
And it covers me in a faded light

And how you build yourself up
No longer brings me down
I've washed my hands of all you've done

Hold on to my, hold on to my soul
Before you take it away, take it away
Hold on to my, hold on to my soul
Before you take it away, take it away
Track Name: Leave
Look at his face
See the scars
Of who he was
And who you are

The past is not
In the past
'Cause broken hearts
And memories last a while

To calm him down
You converse
But you remind
Him of hate

And all attempts
To make amends
Make him pray
For the end

So leave him alone, what did he do to you?
Leave him alone, all the time and every day
Leave him alone, wouldn't he wish for death?
Leave him

Look at her face
Bittersweet
All she hides
Underneath

What once was love
Has flown away
Replaced by doubts
Every day and night

To calm her down
You hide your head
Spend your days
In your bed

With every hour
You waste her time
But fail to see
All your crimes

So leave her alone, what did she do to you?
Leave her alone, all the time and every day
Leave her alone, no wonder she wished for death
Leave her

Look at your face
Are you surprised
Of what you see
In your eyes?

A man who hurts
A man who blames
A man who fights
A man who aims to harm

Now look at her
Look at me
Fuck yourself
We're all we need

Shut your mouth
Off with your head
We're better off
If you were dead

So leave us alone, what did we do to you?
Leave us alone, all the time and every day
Leave us alone, what I wouldn't give for your death
Leave us alone
