Track Name: The Rhetoric Of Social Change
Their Rhetoric is killing us
No “Great Men”
Speaking for us,
We need ordinary heroes
Sons and fathers
Sisters and Daughters
Ordinary Heroes fighting for change

It's our fight for change
Track Name: Don't Waste Our Time
I've come to blow your mind
open your eyes to the startling fact
We're all gonna die
That's why our lives are worth
more than our checks,
the reapers close
Behiiiiiinnnnndd
I take life line by line
Don't you waste our time
you're crossing the line in the sand
that we've drawn
and we can not rewind
the ones that we've loved
and the ones that we've lost
are always on our
Miiiinnndds
Our Tolerance is High
Our friends give it away
every time they die we feel a little more pain
The mother's gonna cry, The junkie finds a vein
Whatever gets you by
We can place no blame
Lied I've tried to keep it inside
But it's lasted too long and the pressures to high the trains been derailed keep you locked in my sight sometimes all I want is to give in but still I
Fiiiiggghttt
They won't take us tonight
Track Name: The Beginning
We can leave this town tonight
Pack our bags say our goodbyes
book our tickets on the next flight
out of town, or we can drive and
see what the day brings

So get inside and close the door
because tonight we follow
the yellow lines
Don't be afraid
it's not the end
It's just beginning

This life is what we make it
take your time enjoy the ride
it's our time to decide
what we want can take it
these are our hearts to break

So get inside and close the door
because tonight we follow
those yellow lines
don't be afraid
it's not the end
it's just beginning.

Whoa, whoa whoa, whoa whoa whoa , whooooaaa
Track Name: Oligarchs
Have you ever breathed
A sigh of relief
when you've paid the rent on time
well the Oligarchs don't know
they only breed
inherited wealth
it's a disease

we’re all the same
don’t look away
lets pick up the pieces

now in this endless game
the one that we can't play
we take it on the chin
time and time again
but the Oligarchs don't know
they only breed
inherited wealth it kills
you and me.

we’re all the same
don't look away
pick up the pieces
time is left
and I hope today
hold on

When it all goes wrong,
Will we live another day
Find the power, the resolve
When it all goes wrong
Track Name: Arms Race
Corruption validated
epidemic indifference
the reigns confiscated
an apathetic consequence
screens block
our senses
to see beyond
our own reality
it's time to breathe
the air of the free

We’ll have no hope for a future
We’ll be ones behind.

Demand! Defy!
Their Arming Both Sides
Defend! Rely!
It's your life

Demand! Defy
Their Arming Both Sides
Defend! Rely!
It's your right

Donations separate us
Power brokers pulling all the strings
Citizens are left to stand by
United by their greed
All their
Money leaves
Us no choice
But to stop
And take back
Everything we built
Was stolen

We’ll have no hope for a future
We’ll be ones behind.
Track Name: Saves The Day
I’ve bit my tongue for 8 long years
If you're looking for a resolution it’s starting here
I’ve watched families dying in the street
their taking it day by day it's all they know

hey hey hey hey
hey hey hey hey

heyyyyy ohhhh

I don’t understand why we live this way
I don’t understand all the suffering
Systems broken down.

we followed the price we pay
we followed to save the day
we followed the price we pay
we followed to save the day

These poison lies that form inside their minds
All this hate and ignorance needs to end this time.
It’s over, it was from the start
It’s over, and we’re tearing you apart
Track Name: Asleep At The Wheel
You seem to sleep so sound
(sleep so sound)
While Im asking for time
asking time to slow down

And you seem to sleep so sound
(sleep so sound)
While Im asking for time
asking time to slow down

Every day is the same,
and yet you wonder why you sleep,
but you don't dream
Its because our lives are owned
bought and sold
beyond any of this life's results

wooo woo wowoaha
Track Name: Eight - Nothing
1.2.3.4 Go!
Doctor Prescribed for the soul
a move to rat city
Dissent en masse crying afoul
an intentional tragedy

humanity constructs
society with these
nonsense ideas
of piety
Asking Why? Asking Who?
let's go another round, or two
Asking Why? Asking Who?
because we are nothing to you

Addiction is just a symptom
of the emptiness inside
provide the right conditions
and the pain it will subside

humanity constructs
society with these
nonsense ideas
of piety
Asking Why? Asking Who?
let's go another round, or two
Asking Why? Asking Who?
because we are nothing to you

We’ve Asked why, We know how
And it's going to end right now
It's still 8 nothing you
but let's light the fuse
Track Name: Rectify Pacify
We’re not the chosen ones
We’re not your holy sons
The time it takes to rectify
takes longer than to pacify

You’ve continue to fall and Genuflect
all the years left with nothing but regret
life is once chance
we don't know where we end up
but it's not the fear It's the lack of experience

We’re not the Chosen Ones
We’re not the holy sons
The time it takes to rectify
is twice as long as to pacify
norms passed on from age old books
and they always go in with the hooks

cultural dissonance cognitive shut down
its air withheld from the brain
its all so insane
Sacrificing Earth for profits today
My children will suffer
and be the ones to pay
