Track Name: Falcon Punch!
We breathe the breath of choice
Our indecision will bury us deep in the earth.
Conflict borne from opposing views means nothing when lives
aren't all that we'd lose.
Hear me out!

Your gods bring nothing
but pain and despair.
Wage war with your demons
Lead not with a prayer.
Life breeds
corruption and filth.
Noble intentions get lost in the truth.

Set me free,
From this curse of humanity.
False idols lead to suffering
Blessed be those with values
not of wealth.
End this now.

I see the skies begin to blacken, regret stains through my sleeves.
My Dreams haunted by ghosts of progress
Brings me to my knees.

I fear their failures will define us
A life spent Forced to flock
I've grown so tired of submission
It's time that we stood up.

No longer on our knees
And we won't kneel again
No longer on my knees
I'll never kneel again.

It's time to stand against
Everything that you stand for.

This world is ours to make anew
And will be ours forever more
We stand united not afraid
We won't be running anymore.

This world is ours to make anew
And will be ours forever more
This spirit won't be broken
And wounds will heal in time.

From the ashes of the fire
We will rise as one
Hold our heads high, fighting on until we see the sun.
From the desert to the shore
We reclaim what we own
Spare no thought for the weak
Or those who stand in our way.

Are your beliefs Worth dying for?
Are your beliefs worth killing ?
Do you know what you're fighting for?

Tear down the fucking walls!

We won't be broken
No we can't be stopped
We won't be broken
We can't be stopped
Track Name: Chad's Gap
I can see,
A vessel,
Shattered on the shore.
the rats all fled and abandoned ship,
now they've drowned for nothing more.
I still have,
this one chance left.
I won’t abandon hope.
In the face of death,
I'll see it through,
until the bitter fucking end.

Return the things I've loved that time has turned to dust.
As the hours keep on killing what,
as yet I haven't lost.

In the face of death and time,
only actions will survive.
We will stand with heads held high,
and our arms toward the sky.

In the darkness,
in the middle of these nights,
we follow stars.
We've dreamed our path across the oceans and the sky.

I’ll spend my life in wait.
Never giving up, never losing sight.
This means the world to me, this is my everything.
Now settle your head, set your body and your bones to rest.
Meet your eager grave with nothing more than a soul that’s gone to waste.

Now settle your head, set your body and your bones to rest.
Meet your eager grave with nothing more
than just a soul to waste.

Fear is for the hopeless.

There is nothing out there for the souls who fight no more.
Fortune favours bravery and the dreams worth dying for.

Fear is for the hopeless and for those who die in vain.
Set your sights on horizons and don't ever turn away.

I will never look away.

Why the fuck are you here,
if this is just a journey, a passage to your end.
That you can't seem to find.
Why the fuck are you here,
if this is just a journey, a passage to your end.
That you will never find.
Track Name: M.C. Party Balls
Waves crashing at my feet,
always becoming what I need.
Everything that I have worked for
I have earned and you took from me.
I'm sorting through this mess
that the doctors call my head.
I think i finally see that you're exactly what is wrong with me.

I have spent all these years
Trying to piece together why I wasn't good enough
To keep you here, to keep you here.
You ran away crushing all that's left of me.

Now I've got to lead the way
for someone who looks up to me.
How can I know what's right
when all I know is how to run.
You took the best of me
then left me at my worst.
You never stopped to see my heart.

As walls close in I still can't sleep.
The weight of life squared on my shoulders.
Pieces lay in the fire
of what we used to be
it took its toll on me,
toll on me.

Was i just a pawn that you used in your plan?
Or somehow a measure you drew in the sand.
Whatever the reason it's easy to see,
That when you were thinking it was not of me

Just a child, of two different backgrounds.
Black or white, I'll still never know.

Your love wasn't free.
You all abandoned me.
I was just a kid.
How could you give me up?

It still pains me to know,
that I was not enough.
I've made myself, I don't owe you a thing.

I don't owe you a thing.

As walls close in I still can't sleep.
The weight of life squared on my shoulders.
Pieces lay in the fire
of what we used to be,
it took its toll on me.
Track Name: Double Negative, It's Tricky
I'm calling forth my demons.
It's time put them to rest.
I'm searching for believers.
I know this fight never ends.

Oh, it sickens me how quickly my days have passed.

As time, like a cancer,
consumes all that is left.

I feel my life is gone, like it's stripped right from my soul.
But I'll fill this emptiness and make my soul worth so much more.

Come stand beside me and we'll bring death to its knees.

Let's scream, let's scream until the world
can only hear our song.
Our words, our voice will resonate.
With every breath I take,
my heart will beat, against this weight.
So that my soul may carry on.

Trapped, by the weight of days and the hours crushing close.
Haunted, by a past that kills, in a town that's full of ghosts.

My god they're choking me, as they try to hold me down.

I'll never die.
Live in fame or infamy, ill never die unknown.
Til my last breath.
Live in fame or infamy, forever carry on.

Till my last breath of life,
I swear I'll find a way,
To protect all that I've loved,
From the thieving hands of death.

Death will not defeat me,
I know that I'll live on.
Death wont be, the end of me.
Track Name: Southroads
I’d rather be dead, than live as a victim of despair
Your shallow life, will never be
As fulfilled as my last breath

I won’t be hopeless, nothing more than dead
I could never be called hopeless, nothing more than dead

I’ve seen the truth that lies beyond the distance in our dreams
I’ve heard sweet whispers and in the distance I hear screams

So close your eyes and hold your breath If it makes you feel alive
I promise you, without hope, I’d rather die
So close your eyes and hold your breath if it makes you feel alive
I promise you, without hope, I’d rather die

I’d rather be dead

Take a breath with open eyes, stare what scares you in the eye
Cast aside the troubled thoughts that plague your weary mind
I witnessed your defeat
I've seen you cowering
In the face of death or fight
I'll watch you bleed

Cast aside your misery
Cast aside despair
In your final hours now

Fuck your defeat

Hope is a fading light to those who would close their eyes
Hope is a fading light to those who would close their eyes

She speaks in dreams and whispers. She dreams in screams.
Discard your fear; seek to search what it is you dream.
Find in life what it is that death will surely thieve.
Discard your fears Seek to seize what it is you dream
Find in life what it is that death will surely thieve

I cannot give up on anything or anyone
I cannot give up if it ever felt worth dying for
