Lyrics

Falling Between the Cracks

Written By: Mikoto

This isn’t what I haven’t done tonight. I’ve wasted every single day. We’ve fallen. I can’t be saved. We’re nothing under your wave. Forever we’re searching hard to be what we belong to be. This is what isn’t mine. This is not the time or the place. I have said it all for you at one time. Replacing this left me all alone. I’ve wasted every single day with out you. We’ve fallen. I can’t be saved. We’re nothing under your wave. Forever we’re trying hard to be what we belong to be. This is what isn’t mine. This is not the time or the place. I have said it all for you at one time. In my time of desperation, who was there? Watching it it all, slip away. Is this the bridge I have to cross? We’ve fallen. I can’t be saved. We’re nothing under your wave. Forever we’re trying hard to be what we belong to be.

-Life is overwhelming. This song is about understanding that pressure and moving through it, not being crushed by it.

Blessed are the Broken

Written By: Mikoto

This Life. This never ending quest. A feeling never shook. (we're slow, when we run the race, just to run right back with this intent. This knife is stuck into your back again. Untill the end, we sing, WOAH) Run down, to the bone. Retaliation is the key. Blessed are the broken. This life, this never ending quest, a feeling never shook. (were slow, when we run the race, just to run right back with this intent. This knife is stuck into your back again. Untill the end, we sing, WOAH) Run down, to the bone. Retaliation is the key, blessed are the broken, no time to waste. Who's impact noone sees. A clouded vision, An unclear throught.

REPLACE. REBUILD. REMOVE.

-In order to become the people we are today we have all had to go through an array of different terrible and uplifting experiences. some worse than others but keeping everything in perspective, we are all who we are today because of what we experienced. That is something powerful and filled with meaning.
