Lyrics

1. DIAMOND

I know that what's in front of me
Is a reflection of what is inside of me
And I see I need to be myself
'Cause it's so lonely in the eyes of someone else
And I feel, oh how I feel
Yeah I feel and I always will
I start to rip free from fear
To free myself before I disappear
I am forever more than just surviving
This is my life and this life is my diamond

My time, your time, our time is running out


2. AGAINST THEM ALL

I know you, because you're just like me
Always questioning every single thing
Never giving up without a fight
Because for you, your resistance is a way of life
Young and angry, with every right to be
Bent but not broken, hanging on by a thread
Looked past by most, looked down on by all.
We don't need them, it's forever us against them all
A fire burns inside you, fueled by everything that
You've ever been through
Every battle you fight goes uphill
But nothing can ever break your iron will
Young and angry, with every right to be
Bent but not broken, hanging on by a thread
Looked past by most, looked down on by all
We don't need them, it's forever us against them all
We don't need them


3. SUCH PAIN

I don't think I could ever let you go
But if you stay I know that I'll lose control.
All the things that we've been through
I can't believe all I've done just to protect you.
Suffocated by the thin line I walk between
Who I am and who I think I should be.
Pointed every finger I could still nothing's right to me.

I am the enemy.

Such Pain.
Climbs like ivy from my feet to my face.

My only enemy is me.


4. THE BOND

Yeah

It's hard to find a way to express myself,
But there's so much I owe to you.
The only ones who deserve to hate me
Are the ones that love me the most.

You are the ones.
And you deserve the same.
You are the ones.
The only ones who ever stayed.

I've learned so much from you and I
Will always walk right by your side.
Keeper, I will defend your name
Just like you've defended mine.

You are the ones
And you deserve the same.
You are the ones.
The only ones who ever stayed.

Unbroken
The bond between you and I
Will always remain unbroken
No matter what the bastards of time may bring
We will always remain unbroken
Unbroken
Unbroken


5. WE STILL BELIEVE

We still believe

I'm sick and tired of all this giving up,
All I hear is talk, and I've had enough.
Single minded, overwhelmingly one sided.
Refusing humanity, does not award morality.
Hope's not dead so we'll forever scream,
Until it's deafening.

We still believe

We are the ones, who stay awake,
While the world sleeps.
Because we still believe.
We are the ones, who will achieve,
What the world dreams.
Because we still believe.

You opened the gate,
And what came rushing out
Is far too powerful for you to hold down.
If there's a better way, someone please tell me now,
But there's not, this is what

We still believe

We are the ones, who stay awake,
While the world sleeps.
Because we still believe.
We are the ones, who will achieve,
What the world dreams.
Because we still believe.

From here on out, I will live
Deliberately!
I can't sit back, to watch the world die,
I must fight back!
I'll pay the price, there's more to this,
Not just me!

We still believe

We are the ones, who stay awake,
While the world sleeps.
Because we still believe.
We are the ones, who will achieve,
What the world dreams.
Because we still believe.


6. RING LOUD (LAST HOPE)

My friend, What has you so troubled?
Why have you turned life into such a struggle?
I see it in you no matter how hard it tries to hide;
The war in your heart and fire in your eyes.
I can't follow, trust me I've tried.
My path is lit by a brighter light.
I will always sing humanity's song,
We May fall but we will carry on.
May these words ring loud.


7. EMPTY HEADS

For the most part I think I've got you figured out
You walk around like you know what this is all about
Will one of you idiots please just say something new?
Ya, well you say "fuck the world" We say "FUCK YOU"

But you've been nowhere and you've seen nothing
It's your stupid stare, it tells me everything
If you can't beat them try harder
Because we're not going down
You better give back or get out

Get back or get out

For the most part I know what you're so mad about
We don't belong, never did, and you want us out
You've become such a slave to your own mouth
You better give back or get out

Get back or get out

Same game
You're doing nothing new
All the same
You think no ones laughing at you?
I've always stood behind every word I've ever said
All talk, no walk
Empty words from empty heads


8. BEYOND THE SUN

She thinks : "Another day
I'm left to drag my broken soul through the streets
Into work and school, then back home"
Not a man in her life that makes her feel whole
Because it's the men in her life
That filled her with those holes.
"What have I done to deserve this?"
To face a raising fist that screams,
"You think I like this bitch?!"
Don't you worry my darling, mommy just tripped
She can feel her sanity starting to slip
So she dreams, if I could just go...

Beyond the sun
Where I can't feel pain
Where I could just fade away
Beyond the sun, where no one lives but me
Help me

Entangled in a web of complete misery
Her cries are stifled by a fear
Of what he might do to the kids
"If i just stick it out this might end soon"
"This is all my fault,
If I had just done what he said
I could have avoided this all"
And still she dreams, if I could just go...

Beyond the sun
Where I can't feel pain
Where I could just fade away
Beyond the sun, where no one lives but me
Help me

How can we let this be ?
Our sister and mothers are dying
How can we let this be ?
Our mother are dying
How can we let this be ?


9. LIFE IN A BOX

I can't imagine how terrifying it must be
To live your life in a box scared shitless of everything
You're the product of the world that's fed to you
You hate those who live a life you're not used to

You're looking for more
You follow a whore
On fire for Christ but your life is lukewarm
Evil and foul to the lives you dismiss
And I hate the fact that I let myself be pushed to this

This is a place of acceptance
Not a place of repentance
So save your breathe
You homophobic shithead

One day you will pay your debt but until then
I'll fight to undo every word that you've said

And every time you lift your hand to cast your stone
I'll find you and shove it back down your throat

I'm through acting civil
Now you know how I feel


10. BRINGING YOU DOWN

The rage that builds in us is bringing you down.

Chewed up and spit out, lost and alone.
Your jobs been ripped from you and on deck, your home.
Can't feed yourself, let alone feed the kids.
American dreams have turned to your American greed.
Their fingers are crossed while they smile and promise.
The wrong side of broke while our gold lines their pockets.
On the priority list we place dead last,
And their foreclosed signs line our "greener grass."
Look me in my eyes you crooked fuck.
Not one more god damn lie.
Your time is up.
The rage that builds in us is bringing you down.

Watch the weight of it all come crashing down.
United, now the kings will lose their crown.

Now we're shit out of luck and they don't give a fuck.
No they don't give a fuck.

Now the masses awaken.
The embodiment of sacrifice.
History in the making.
Witness defining moments of our lives.

Their fingers are crossed while they smile and promise.
The wrong side of broke while our gold lines their pockets.
On the priority list we place dead last,
And their foreclosed signs line our "greener grass."
Look me in my eyes you crooked fuck.
Not one more god damn lie.
Your time is up.
The rage that builds in us is bringing you down.

Watch the weight of it all come crashing down.
United, now the kings will lose their crown.

The rage that builds in us is bringing you down. [x4]


11. D(I AM)OND

I am a brave man, I am a coward
I am the tiger, I am the flower
I am honest, and I'm a liar
I am vital, I am tired
I am a free man, I am caught
From where I am, I see the top
I am, most importantly never concerned with what I am not.

(I am) A brave man, a coward
The tiger, the flower
(I am) Honest, a liar
I am vital and so fucking tired
(I am) A free man, I am caught
From where I am, I see the top
(I am) Most importantly never concerned with what I am not.

(I am) Forever more than just surviving
This is my life and this life is my diamond.


12. BUILT UPON THE SAND

Day in and day out
Shit on and kicked in
The world's garbage you left sifting
Mind like a wrath flame and flood
Done talking, no one's listening

They pushed me, they pushed me
I'll rip this place at the seams
They did this, not me
Inflicted with this disease
I'm screaming, God help me
I scream as loud as I can
This is another life
Built upon the sand

You've hit bottom and you're still sinking
So small and you're still shrinking
What can you do ?
You've gone from alone to completely see through

Let's all watch while the hammer falls

They pushed me, they pushed me
I'll rip this place at the seams
They did this, not me
Inflicted with this disease
I'm screaming, God help me
I scream as loud as I can
This is another life
Built upon the sand

I understand you
