    An aural illustration of the feelings that ruin and separate me, the places those feelings have taken me, and finally some resolution. The album cover and casing represent the bags of heroin I used to hide behind and escape reality. I'm not some proud advocate for drug use, but rather a person who's lived on the opposing side of "normalcy" and lived to talk about it. I'm an advocate for awareness instead of sheltering, and I'm working on the issues that lead to the drugs by writing about them instead of acting on them.

    I accept that some might take it all for face value and call it a bunch of songs about shooting dope and being a true piece of shit, but I won't write happy songs for happy people to indulge in how happy they already are. I will continue to write fucking miserable songs, about how ugly we can be when we can't get out of our own way, for the people like myself who just need something to relate to.

I find comfort and begin to progress
Reverse when I forget

That I was a victim
Until I became aware
Self centered
I became a volunteer

I've spent much of my energy
Trying to people please
And save the weak
And what’s left of me
I tried for the ones
I truly need
But It was just
Preoccupied time on
The petty wants of my mind
And still stood I

Counting up my thoughts
As the floor falls from my feet
To be
By self
As weak
It all begins ends with me

I find fault and begin to regress
How could such a pretty image
Turn to one I resent
I've faught with every corner
Of my mind and realize
All the the pain I've felt
Is just result of my pride

Color saturates and the image is cleared
In my personal reflection and atonement of fears

Try to sustain as I collect myself
And I leave the way that I'm perceived to someone else
