1. MOLOTOV

Burn it down!
I see the dawning of a movement of the kids who won't concede
To a culture of deception; and a spark is all we need
I see the dawning of a movement of the kids who won't concede
To a culture of deception; and a spark is all we need
To see a revolution in a culture that's living a lie
Still, this is our generation, and still, we will not watch it die

Out in the streets we run, with the fire of conviction,
And we let it shine
We burn every structure down, that stands for our destruction
Liberate your mind!
And we will always believe:
They can see our banner waving high, so let your fire burn tonight
And as the city sleeps, in the empty streets, there's a flame lighting up the sky!

There is a system designed to destroy us
We'll send it back to hell!
I'll watch it burn to the ground
Burn it down!
I'll watch it burn to the ground;
And freedom will rise from the ashes

Burn it down!
I see the dawning of a movement of the kids who won't concede
To a culture of deception; and a spark is all we need
I see the dawning of a movement of the kids who won't concede
To a culture of deception; and a spark is all we need
To see a revolution in a culture that's living a lie
Still, this is our generation, and still, we will not watch it die

And we will always believe:
They can see our banner waving high, so let your fire burn tonight
And as the city sleeps, in the empty streets, there's a flame lighting up the sky!
They can see our banner waving high, so let your fire burn tonight
And as the city sleeps, in the empty streets, there's a flame we see burning bright!


2. FIGHT THE SILENCE

Eye to eye, face to face
Still we don’t see them; we look away
Still we cry; but no one is listening
When will we open our eyes
Open our eyes

This song we sing to silence the suffering
When will we hear their cries (when will we hear their cries)
This song we sing to silence the suffering
When will we open our eyes (when will we open our eyes)

So let the world listen closely
As i scream to see the freedom they deserve
Let the world listen closely
I say, “its time to cross the lines of culture”
Birth bringing on poverty…
They keep us uninformed and distracted
If they can’t fight for themselves, we’ll fight for them
Its time… to fight the silence

Go

Broken, abused, and exploited
For the sick satisfaction of selfish men
Only a coward would try to ignore it
But we can raise our voice and bring it to an end

Fight, fight, fight the silence
Set the captives free
Fight, fight, fight the silence
They're a slave to a system of apathy
Bought and sold…

They're right to life has been taken away

Bought and sold…

Bring an end to slavery

Open our eyes
This song we sing to silence the suffering
When will we hear their cries (when will we hear their cries)
This song we sing to silence the suffering
When will we open our eyes (when will we open our eyes)
This song we sing to silence the suffering
When will we hear their cries (when will we hear their cries)
This song we sing to silence the suffering

When will we open our eyes
Their fate is in our hands
Will they be left there to suffer
Will somebody take a stand
Against a system… that’s been designed to deny

Its victims… their right to life
Let’s set the captives free
When all is said and done, we’ll see justice come
Its time to fight the silence

Go

The voice of the voiceless
Fight the silence
We are the hope for the hopeless
Fight the silence
Fight, fight, fight the silence
Its time to…
Fight


3. PARIAH

I will never bow down to your idols
I know who I am
You'll have to put me in the ground to silence me
This is my final stand

You can't kill me, I'm already dead
This is the martyr's cry
So as the crowd demands my head
My time has come to die
You can't kill me, I'm already dead
This is the martyr's cry
So as the crowd demands my head
My time has come to die

Death is only the beginning
Of everything I'm living for
This is my final stand
Laid upon the altar
This is my final stand
Laid upon the altar
This is my final stand

Stand up my convictions are not for sale
And I know who I am
They can't deny the truth inside me
So I will suffer at their hands
Dragged through the streets like a criminal
By my own flesh and blood
Guilty by association
There is hell to pay for this apostate son

Kill him, the self-righteous scream
He serves a new king
Kill him, their blind eyes can't see
I serve the true king
Now the rocks start flying
And my mouth it fills with blood
I can hear my mother crying
But one voice is not enough

I was facing the full wrath of hell, feeble as it is
I was facing a good death as well, this is glorious
Face to face with the grave I was waiting for
And my killers were
Face to face with a faith they can't ignore
This is my final stand

I will never bow down to your idols
I know who I am
You'll have to put me in the ground to silence me
This is my final stand

You can't kill me, I'm already dead
This is the martyr's cry
So as the crowd demands my head
My time has come to die
You can't kill me, I'm already dead
This is the martyr's cry
So as the crowd demands my head
My time has come to die


4. REFLECTIONS

What have we done? What have we become?
A broken mirror reflecting only darkness
Disruptive vision and closed off hearts
We turned our face away from those we're sent to love
But now I hear your voice calling me back home, it isn't over yet
Bringing hope into our hopelessness
Turning hearts from stone to flesh

In a world headed for self destruction, the answer is here; are we too blind to see it?
In a world headed for self destruction, the answer is here; are we too blind to see it?


5. BREAK THE CYCLE

It's the blind leading the blind leading
The blind to their demise
It's the blind leading the blind leading
The blind to their demise Break the cycle!
Break the cycle! Break the cycle!
Self destruction has tainted our way of life
It's time to break the cycle In the darkness of fear,
There's a dawning light It's time to break the cycle

We stumble around and fall to the ground,
But are we too proud to reach out--
To reach for a hand that can help us to stand,
And keep us from falling facedown?
We're only helpless because we're heartless

In a world headed for self-destruction,
The answer is here; are we too blind to see it?
In a world headed for self-destruction,
The answer is here; are we too blind to see it?
There is hope in the blood! (So)
Rise up, there's a new day dawning!
We'll see the darkness flee Rise up,
There's a new day dawning, in which the blind will see!
I see a light in the darkness, rising in the night!
I see a light in the darkness, in the Sons of light!
Bring this broken system to it's knees
Bring this broken system to it's knees
Break the Cycle Break the Cycle
We're only helpless, because we're heartless

In a world headed for self-destruction,
The answer is here; are we too blind to see it?
In a world headed for self-destruction, the answer is here;
Are we too blind to see it?
There is hope in the blood! (So)
Rise up, there's a new day dawning!
We'll see the darkness flee
Rise up, there's a new day dawning,
In which the blind will see!
I see a light in the darkness, rising in the night!
I see a light in the darkness, in the Sons of light!

It's the blind, leading the blind,
Leading the blind to their demise
It's the blind, leading the blind,
Leading the blind to their demise Break the cycle!
Break the cycle! Break the cycle!


6. A CALL TO ARMS

Let desperation have a voice you can't ignore
Now, listen closely to the voices of the poor

If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered

Dying in the streets, they are fighting to see peace
This is a call to arms against the greed of our nation
This is a call to arms, we are the seed of salvation
Call, call to arms; preying on the helpless for far too long
Call to arms; it's time to cross the lines we've drawn

Too afraid to be made to suffer, we stay safe in our luxury,
While broken people kill each other
Desperate men do desperate things
You want to stop the violence? Put an end to poverty!
You'll never keep them silent
Desperate men do desperate things
Greed is a deadly thing, still, in our shame, we hide
Greed is a deadly thing, but justice won't be denied

Dying in the streets, they are fighting to see peace
This is a call to arms against the greed of our nation
This is a call to arms, we are the seed of salvation
Call, call to arms; preying on the helpless for far too long
Call to arms; it's time to cross the lines we've drawn

Too afraid to be made to suffer, we stay safe in our luxury,
While broken people kill each other
Desperate men do desperate things
They may be forgotten, but they are still not gone
If we can meet their needs, we can find the peace
That we've been chasing all along
They may be forgotten, but they are still not gone
If we can meet their needs, we can find the peace
That we've been chasing all along


7. FOR THE FALLEN

This is a song for the fallen i see you rising again
Only a coward would run away
Looking for freedom you only found regret
Only a coward would run away
Leave your past behind you, there is hope ahead

I see you writhing in pain from all the hell that you've seen
You left it all for a life that never satisfied you
Unloved by the world, you lost it all to conform to
There's still hope for the voice that's crying out inside you
If you can hear it you still have time!

Come back to your home, and all you're running from
I'm begging you to come back to your home, and all you're Running from
I'm begging you to come home
You are not what you've done, and this is not who you are
No matter how far you've run, you have not gone too far
You are not what you've done, and this is not who you are
No matter how far you've run, you have not gone too far

Take a deep breath, and swallow your pride
Turn from the path you're on, and conquer the fear inside
Dead men tell no tales, but if you're still alive you can still write your story
Dead men tell no tales, but there is still time for the hard climb to glory

I see you writhing in pain from all the hell that you've seen
You left it all for a life that never satisfied you
Unloved by the world, you lost it all to conform to
There's still hope for the voice that's crying out inside you
If you can hear it you still have time!

Come back to your home, and all you're running from
I'm begging you to come back to your home, and all you're running from
I'm begging you to come home
You are not what you've done, and this is not who you are
No matter how far you've run, you have not gone too far
You are not what you've done, and this is not who you are
No matter how far you've run, you have not gone too far

Come back home!
This is a song for the fallen!
I see you rising again, come back home!
Your story isn't over, but one day it will come to an end!

Time is running out!
Dead men tell no tales, make no mistake, time is running out!
Dead men tell no tales, make no mistake, time is running out!


8. FATHERLESS

Here's to my desire to remember what he left
But, there was no time for sentiment as he took his final breath
I was not too broken to hope for a helping hand, but I had to fight to find it
Eight years old is too young to become a man; I left my hope behind me
I was just another angry kid, growing up without a dad
So I sold my soul for the highest bid, to get the love I never had

Tell me who I am
A kid that turned to the world for identity
I can hardly stand
Trying to find myself, I confined myself
Now I've come to see, it was never "me" I was looking for…
It was always Him, it was always Him

Born from a broken home
When my father died, I was left to find my way through life alone
Left on my own, I put my pain on display as I fought with hatred and rage
No son should ever have to face the world without the love of his father
I faced the world alone
I had no one to run to, and everything to run from
I had no one to run to, and everything to run from
I buried my hope in the ground
Drowning, with no one to pull me out, sinking inside my head

I was just another angry kid growing up without a dad,
So I sold my soul for the highest bid to get the love I never had

Tell me who I am
A kid that turned to the world for identity
I can hardly stand
Trying to find myself, I confined myself
Now I've come to see, it was never "me" I was looking for…
It was always Him, it was always Him

Tell me who I am
I can hardly stand
Now I've come to see, it was never "me" I was looking for…
It was always Him, it was always Him


9. DEAD TO RIGHTS

I stood, with terror flowing through my veins,
Before a judge that could see past the white mask that hid my shame
With terror flowing through my veins,
All of heaven and earth hid themselves from His face
And wrath is all I could see, as I looked back over my faded memories
I sold my soul, and lost my destiny
I let selfish ambition get the best of me
Exposed for my arrogance, and justice demands my conviction

Dead to rights
He took my place and saved my life
He had me dead to rights
He took my place and saved my life
There was no way out for me
I had blood on my hands
Guilty! Guilty!
Blood on my hands
Guilty! Guilty!

Alone, I turned to hear my advocate saying,
"Father, forgive him My blood is sufficient for him"
Though I had nothing left to give,
It had already been given as perfect provision
So, gladly, I gave my life
To the only One who could save my life

Dead to rights
He took my place and saved my life
He had me dead to rights
He took my place and saved my life

"And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged, every man according to their works And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire This is the second death" [Revelation 20:13-14]

No one is innocent
There is hope, but what if no one is listening?
No one is innocent
There is hope, but what if no one is listening?
This is the second death
No one is innocent
This is the second death
No one is innocent
This is the second death


10. ONE VOICE

One voice, one heart, one mind, against the enemy
One voice, one heart, one mind, against the enemy

My voice is a weapon;
Every word like a bullet, flying straight and true
My voice is a weapon,
And I won't back down from the war that we're going through
My voice is a weapon, I'm willing to fight to see deception lose its place
And, you'll never be able to silence me, there is far too much at stake
Speak out if you're not afraid of what the world might say
Speak out if you're not afraid to see the system change

Cowards can gather crowds with their slick words, but they have nothing to say
Any coward can gather crowds with his slick words, but now it's time for change!
Let them see your heart
Let them see, this is true conviction!
Let them see your heart
This is true conviction!
Let them see your heart
This is true conviction!
One voice is all it takes to break the silence
This is true conviction!
One voice is all it takes to break the silence

My voice is a weapon;
Every word like a bullet, flying straight and true
My voice is a weapon,
And I won't back down from the war that we're going through
My voice is a weapon, I'm willing to fight to see deception lose its place
And, you'll never be able to silence me, there is far too much at stake
Speak out if you're not afraid of what the world might say
Speak out if you're not afraid to see the system change

One voice is all it takes to break the silence
One voice is all it takes to break the silence
One voice, one heart, one mind: this is true conviction!
One voice, one heart, one mind: this is true conviction!


11. RESONATE

If this was the last song that I could sing,
I pray these words would resonate
Even if my voice gives out, my heart will still beat
It's more than melodies, more than everything

We're not alone; there is hope to heal the hurting
We're not alone; there is hope to heal your soul

We're not alone; there is hope, there is forgiveness
We're not alone; you don't have to walk alone


12. HATED BY THE WORLD

I gave it all for the sake of the ones that I loved more than anything
Day after day, night after night, I saw them shining bright
I gave it all for a scene and a dream that I still believe in
I saw them rising up, and then they said it was not enough

Everything I'd come to love had turned against me
In a moment, I'd been made into the enemy
The enemy of those that claimed that they were with me
I'd been cast out of the place I once belonged

Hated by the world, betrayed and abandoned
Hated by the world; all alone, I was standing there,
Hated by the world, rejected
Hated by the world, I lost it all
Hated by the world

I gave it all for the sake of the ones that I loved more than anything
Day after day, night after night, I saw them shining bright
I gave it all for a scene and a dream that I still believe in
I saw them rising up, and then they said it was not enough
Slander turned their hearts against me
O, how quickly lies become the "truth"

Broken and betrayed, bleeding heart on display;
With no one left to listen, and nothing left to say
Broken and betrayed, bleeding heart on display;
With no one left to listen, and nothing left to say

Everything I'd come to love had turned against me
In a moment, I'd been made into the enemy
The enemy of those that claimed that they were with me
I'd been cast out of the place I once belonged

What I'd thought was unbreakable is lying broken at my feet
I haven't given up on you, even if you gave up on me
What I'd thought was unbreakable is lying broken at my feet
I haven't given up on you, even if you gave up on me
What I'd thought was unbreakable is lying broken at my feet
I haven't given up on you, even if you gave up on me
I will always stand for you, even if I stand alone
I will always stand for you, even if I stand alone
