1. LIFE OF DEFIANCE

Waking up from an apathetic life.
The last of the malcontent.
Won't be held back by a failed cowardice.
Won't dig our own graves.
Won't dig our own graves.
We won't dig our own graves.

Won't sleep in the daylight
Or abandon the lost in the dark.
We'll be the cause of the stir.
A return to a life of defiance.
Won't sleep in the daylight
Or abandon the lost in the dark.
We'll be the cause of the stir.
A return to a life of defiance...
A life of defiance.


2. DRAWING LINES ON ALL SIDES

I refuse to be another cog in their machine.
I can't take part in your decaying tradition.
No love.
No heart.
A perversion of what you set out to start.
Void of a substance.
A decaying tradition.

Your need for assimilation attacks the vulnerable.
With a heart driven by fear.
I won't... I won't participate.
A hateful rhetoric disguised as holiness.
With a heart filled with fear.
I won't... I won't participate...
I won't participate.
This hatred ends with me...

This hatred ends with me.
This hatred ends with me.
This hatred ends with me.
This hatred ends with me.

I refuse to be another cog in their machine.
I can't take part in your decaying tradition.
No love.
No heart.
A perversion of what you set out to start.
Void of a substance.
A decaying tradition.


3. EMPTY PROMISES

You thought you'd prove them wrong.
You thought you were too strong.
But everyone that professed their love would pick up
And run. And they promised to stay behind
Under a dark blue sky.
Now they've all walked away.
Left you waiting in vain.

It's an empty shadow of what...
Of what it's supposed to mean.
But all those words have you chasing what it used to be
What used to feel so real makes you feel...
Makes you feel so numb and cheap.
How much more until your heart stops to beat?

How long can we afford to live this way?
They'll keep on lying, taking everything.
Could we afford to trust anyone else?
How could we trust ourselves?

Break the cycle.
Break the cycle.
Break the cycle of giving in.
Go...
Break the cycle of giving in.
Break the cycle of losing everything.
Break the cycle of giving in.
Break the cycle of losing everything.


4. THE WEIGHT

My hands hold nothing.
There's no place to rest my head.
As the long nights turn into sunken eyes
And the letdowns turn into regret.

Everything they needed me to be,
Slips through my fingers.
So temporary.
But I'll stop and strive to be content
In their world of selfishness.

The fear.
It kills and it steals.
The hate.
It leaves them ashamed.

This weight.
This weight.
It brings men to their knees.
Their worthless wealth could never lift it from me.
This weight.
This weight.
It comes to set me free.
Leaves me asking.
Leaves me praying take everything from me.

So I wait and I wait.
It brings me to my knees.
One peace.
One relief to cure the insatiable greed.

The fear.
It kills and it steals.
The hate.
It leaves them ashamed.

So can I break free from the disease they feed to me.
Wake up and walk away.
Their wealth could never lift this from me.
Walk away.
From their disease.
Their wealth could never lift this from me.
Walk away.
From their disease.
Their wealth could never lift this from...
Lift this from me.


5. FUNCTIONARY

Nature plays you for a fool.
You've lost all your control.
Your mind betrays your body.
Your body betrays your soul.
No excuse for the ones you use.
A slave to attention.
Their dependence comforts you.
You don't need love, do you?
Just a collar to pull.
A sleeve to hold on to.
No excuse for the ones you use.
At the end of the day you're still the same.
Everything weighs down on you.
Still empty and ashamed.
The days stay long and the nights stay dark ...
And the nights stay dark.

It leaves you cold and numb.
Waiting for something to come.
All of this will never change
The tightening grip of empty space.
It leaves you cold and numb.
Waiting for something to come.
All of this will never change
The tightening grip of empty space.
No excuse for the ones you use.
At the end of the day you're still the same.
Everything weighs down on you.
Still empty and ashamed.
The days stay long and the nights stay dark.

Still feel the same.
You still feel the same.
You still feel the same.
You still feel the same.
It weighs down on you.
You can't seem to escape.
Through all the lives you use, you still feel the same.
You still feel the same.
You still feel the same.
You still feel the same.
You still feel the same.


6. DESOTO

I can't stay in this place.
Just after four years
I can see their eyelids getting heavy.
Between the 9 to 5 and the drunken nights,
It's just empty promises and empty lives,
And everything that held us together is gone.
Paved over and forgotten.
Paved over and forgotten.

We never even saw it coming
Till the concrete started closing in.
Till the sprawl became the nails in our coffins.
Look around. You'll always be one step from getting out.
So if you want something better, start running now.

Look around.
Look around.
Start running now.
Start running now.
Their prosperity.
Our grim reality.
The concrete started closing in.
The sprawl became the nails in our coffins.
Look around.
You'll always be one step from getting out.
So if you want something better, start running now.
Paved over and forgotten.
Paved over and forgotten.
We never even saw it coming.
We never even saw it coming.
We never even saw it coming.


7. THIN SKIN

So sick of defending myself.
Creating a facade for everyone else.
We live so guarded you'd never know we're alive.
Worried they'd damage what's inside.

After years of being guarded our defenses are wearing thin
Becoming vulnerable to live... to live again
We're coming of age in hostility.
We're taught to despise our own skin...

They lie and wait for us.
They try and pick us apart,
But we're no longer afraid to show our scars.
They lie and wait for us.
They try and pick us apart,
But we're no longer afraid to show our scars.

We're coming of age in hostility,
But we won't despise our own skin... our own skin.
We're not afraid. We won't be fazed.
We won't despise our own skin.
We're not afraid. We won't be fazed.
We won't despise our own skin.


8. ACROSS THE ISLE (FT. JOE MUSTEN OF ADVENT)

Could we waste anymore time on this?
It's a strange thing to show love with your fist.
We screamed until they went deaf.
We pushed until they bled.
A slave to your politics.

(Won't be a slave).
The way they use our God
(The way they use our God)
To justify a war (to justify)
Or toe the party line (or toe the party line).
The way you play the whore.
I won't close my eyes and justify a fight for control.
I won't toe your line.

I can't close my eyes.
I can't toe your line.
I can't close my eyes.
I can't toe your line.


9. HOLDING EMBERS

I said I'd never go back again.
I'm holding embers in my hands.
It was compromise after compromise.
I pulled closer and still nothing satisfied.
Every attempt to feel something pushes you further away.
I can't recognize myself.
I became someone else.

I pushed it further than I thought I ever would.
The fool.
The coward.
The shameful son.
I pushed it further just to find I lost myself.
I became someone else.

Waking up wanting to start again.
I'm holding my head in my hands, but the days trail behind
My eyes forever fixed.
My gaze forever fixed.
Every attempt to feel something, pushes you further away.
I can't recognize myself.
I became someone else.


10. LOST AT SEA

You drown yourself in a drink.
I'd rather be lost at sea.
The constant struggle to breathe.
Never the life for me.
I don't want to see through the eyes of a hazy mind,
Or look at the future and blindly... blindly close my eyes
Don't try to say you live your own way.

Don't try to say you're living your life your own way
Won't disconnect from reality.
I won't bury my head and suffocate.
Lost at sea.
You're not living your life your own way.


11. LAST LOOK BACK

I've watched it rot away.
Every defense I had fell into decay.
I've watched it fall and break.
Every defense I had fell into decay.

I'm running out of space for things to say.
I'm tired of spending my life lamenting to a page.
I'm losing ground.
I'm losing sleep.
I'm watching the ones I love go where I can't follow.
But I know...
I know it's all a means to an end.
I can't be made to just sit in the dark. Just watch the world pass by and not progress at all.
I'm watching the ones I love go where I can't follow.
But I know...
I know it's all a means to an end.

This is my last look back.
A final farewell to the past.
Embracing uncertainty.
Give and regret nothing.
This is my last look back.
A final farewell to the past.
Embracing uncertainty.
Give and regret nothing.

And all these frustrations seem to go unnoticed, unanswered
Just when I start to feel content,
Everything starts to shift again.
So I try to figure out what's the lesson in all this.
But I know...
I know it's all a means to an end.
I can't be made to just sit here in the dark.
Just watch the world pass by and not progress at all.
But I know...
I know it's all a means to an end.

I've watched it rot away.
Every defense I had fell into decay.
I've watched it fall and break.
Every defense I had fell into decay.

This is my last look back.
A final farewell to the past.
Embracing uncertainty.
Give and regret nothing.
This is my last look back.
A final farewell to the past.
Embracing uncertainty.
Give and regret nothing.
This is... (this is) ...
My last look back (my last look back).
This is... (this is) ...
My last look back (my last look back).
This is... (this is) ...
My last look back (my last look back).
