theresa2121 Definitely one of my favorite albums and the only reason I have bandcamp. I highly recommend you buy this because it's amazing. And you should follow The Safest Ledge guys on social media and have a conversation with them. They are all really nice funny guys. Favorite track: 20 Chapters, I've Ripped Away.

Woah Dawg One of the sickest bands coming out of Ohio. Literally came out of nowhere, with all these bangers. Really emotional stuff. I dig it a lot. This band is going somewhere. Favorite track: Downhearted.

Track Name: 20 Chapters, I've Ripped Away
I found a cure
to free the man in the box,
his mourn so pure
it stained red on the lock,
the sheltered soul
strides so cold and alone,
pacing back
and forth to hold on to hope,

save myself,
i'm seeking out for shelter,
i'm writing out a cry for help,
a stubborn mind too far from closure

tortured minds lead to broken bones,
menacing words leave trails to home,
to where i've cleansed my selfish soul,
erase me from this world unknown,

i always speak x2
i always speak my broken mind
and i promise it wont be the last time,

(farewell to the breath worth breathing,
farewell to the life we lived)

farewell,
i never thought x2
id meet my own face,
farewell,
just march,
a march of the waste of flesh that never lived,

save my self,
i'm seeking out for shelter,
i'm writing out a cry for help,
a stubborn mind too far from closure

tortured minds lead to broken bones,
menacing words leave trails to home,
to where i've cleansed my selfish soul,
erase me from this world unknown,
Track Name: Downhearted
Dazed from the sight of her eyes i had witnessed,
where a beautiful girl used to belong,
I remember her eyes were my sense of direction called home.
Now im just a shell of my once former self,
claiming ive become so profound,
that I found myself,
but I know,
that im still lost.

I am not sure,
if I am ready yet,
to find out the hard way.
For how strong I am,
or what im made of,
am I ready to walk away.

I am not found and I lost my sense of direction.
misplaced in a world I hate,
guided by misconception.
The girl that I once held true is now a figment of my imagination.
Projected in my mind a beautiful woman of wonder,
but now held self evident.
I lost my pride and all im left with is resentment.

God im so fucking lost.
There isnt a hope left in sight.
The resentment is out of sight.
I promise this isnt real,
but im just so fucking sick.

I am not sure,
if I am ready yet,
to find out the hard way.
for how strong i am,
or what im made of,
am i ready to walk away.

I still blame myself for everything that you've become.
You stare at the cigarettes on your night stand.
Father wonders where he went wrong.
I am not afraid to say that
I am not afraid to see this.
I am not afraid to say that,
im not strong enough.
To look you in the eyes and tell you its all my fault.
Wherever you will walk,
ill follow and pick you up.
Track Name: Impostor (feat. Shawn Williams of Edorra)
I know ill be fine,
even though you weren't there for me.
I picked myself up,
even when you couldn't hold two feet.
You're just a lost soul,
A lost man in time and space it shows.
You don't know yourself,
but this time you'll reap what you sow.

How can you just,
lie there and act like you don't,
feel a thing or know remorse.
I know better than to hold on to,
thoughts that you're an empty shell,
with no feels or better left to tell.
I know better,
I know you.

It was nothing but a late night a date night,
caught between the walls of an alley,
Jack and Sally had their worst night.
Its been said we've had our best talks behind a cigarette.
It was cold our words were bold,
we could see our breath.
I lost my sight and lost my mind,
when you heard me say this.

There's seven billion more fish in the sea,
ill run into another one that's just like you and me,
but ill push them aside just like you did to me,
and when they think its over,
ill have them hanging by a noose wishing they could scream.

Beat me to a pulp and put my teeth to a curb.
You're just a tear in the page of this chapter.
These words you thought would tear me apart,
have turned around to put a stop to your fraud.
Track Name: Farewells Aren't One Sided
Patiently waiting,
for the smoke to fall.
Where have you left me.
I cant breathe at all.

Please don't forget me,
you'll see me soon,
and remember not,
to forget the moon.

Ive lost my independence,
and I'm so astray without you.
You're the missing page from my story,
and I'm misplaced without this,
i promise ill never forget you.
You're the page I've ripped away.

Please don't forget me,
you'll see me soon,
and remember not,
to forget the moon.

(When you had to leave us behind,
I still wish i could say good bye.)
Track Name: Over the Years
For the first time in a while,
I thought of you and smiled,
The thought of gone inside my head,
only left with the words you said,

Please don't forget me you'll see me soon,
and remember not to forget the moon,
because ill be by your side,
I love you.

Because over the years,
without you here.
Ill just have to forget,
about the hole inside my chest.

Because over the years,
Ill fight back the tears.
Remember the good times we had,
before it got too bad.
...
And when you finally decided,
farewells aren't supposed to be one sided.
Track Name: In Memoriam
pain
the feelings i felt
with the lies that were spelled out
in my own name
i gained
less than what i was worth
up to my neck in dirt
grain by grain
silent words
louder than church bells
I'm shot down in gun shells
day by day
there's no need to blame thee
my breath ripped right from me
numb broken beneath
I'm drained out and left empty

"without any trace
i will be singing sins in my sleep" x2
(houses are built for no one to call home)
without any trace
i will be singing sins in my sleep

happy is the house that shelters a friend
promises are kept and don't fade til the end
troubled afflictions started with a grin
consistency and family serenade again

"without any trace
i will be singing sins in my sleep" x2
(abandoning a family leaving us alone)
without any trace
i will be singing sins in my sleep

do's and don't s shattered the frame work
even though i was the damsel in distress
we were all stranded out to sea
stranded out with me
treading boundaries between who i was
who i am and who I'm going to be
words collide and all I'm left with is you and i
you and i meaning the remembrance that's still alive
left here on the ground on which you died
leaving us kids here
alone nourish the plants with no eyes
every time i start looking back
i try and forget that i didn't say goodbye
but now i miss you so much
and for now this is all i wrote
i still hold on to your note
and i quote

"houses are built
for no one to call home
abandoning a family
leaving us alone" x2

fix mine eyes
for i found blind

(happy is the house that shelters a friend)
swollen thighs
(promises are kept and don"t fade til the end)
carry my
(troubled afflictions started with a grin)
last memory of these
(consistency and family serenade again)
