1. WE DON'T CARE ANYMORE

Underneath the gun in front of waiting eyes
Our time has just begun no second chance tonight

So we walk the longest days to live inside the shortest nights
We compromise our hearts to keep them satisfied
The shadows of our past, hard to ignore but judgment means nothing that's not what we're fighting for

We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore

Underneath the gun in front of doubting eyes
We walk this path as one take on the world tonight
And we'll carve our names into their bones
We'll never sell ourselves that's not what we're fighting for

We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore

I won't let this love, I won't let this love die, I won't let it die
There is only one thing that matters this time
At the hands of judgment I won't let it die, no sacrifice, regrets left behind, I won't let it die

This time, yeah, this time I won't let it die, that's not what we're fighting for
We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore
No we don't care anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care anymore

I won't let this love, I won't let this love die


2. TAKE ME BACK

Do you still remember back when days were longer, dreams were bigger then
The weight of the world had not yet landed on the shoulders of a man
(I THOUGHT) I thought that time stood still, sheltered, protected
They never told me this would end or that the leaves would fall again

So take me back, back to better days
Cause this time between is wasting me away
Take me back, when we were not afraid
Cause this time between is wasting me away

There was a day when this world went to war and didn't bat an eye
Real life in the movies felt the same to me and I never questioned why
(I KNOW) I know the difference now, between fact and fiction
But I've come to find that I've grown bitter in just 24 short years

So take me back, back to better days
Cause this time between is wasting me away
So take me back, when we were not afraid
Cause this time between is wasting me away

Wasting me away, Waste away
So now we're running, we're running blind into the light
And we fall behind
We're running and wasting away with time

So take me back, back to better days
Cause this time between is wasting me away
Take me back, when we were not afraid
Cause this time between is wasting me away
Take me back, yeah back to better days
Cause this time between is wasting me away
Take me back, when we were not afraid
Cause this time between is wasting me away

Yeah take me back, just take me back, yeah take me back
(Take me back)
Yeah take me back, just take me back, yeah take me back
(Take me back)
When we were not afraid


3. OUR TIME IS NOW

Today will be the day to start rising up and fighting back
And from this moment on we will live our lives
With open hearts and open eyes

Just keep pushing forward
We take control, we take control
Keep fighting onward
We take control, we take control
Keep pushing forward
We take control, we take control
And we will never step down

We won't fall or hesitate and from this rotting life we disengage
Can we strive to break away and stop wasting time on these insecurities?

Just keep pushing forward
We take control, we take control
Keep fighting onward
We take control, we take control
Keep pushing forward
We take control, we take control
And we will never step down

Our time is now, our time is now, our time is now
We won't step down, no we won't step down
No we won't step down, no we won't step down
We won't step down
Because our world is waiting for us to live
Because our world is waiting for us to live

So right now just keep pushing forward
We take control, we take control
Keep fighting onward
We take control, we take control
Just keep pushing forward
We take control, we take control
Keep fighting onward
We take control, we take control
And we'll never step down

Our time is now, our time is now, yeah


4. TASTE THE POISON

It's the same old story
I've seen it all too many times
It's the fall from glory
That makes you feel...

Place your needle to the record, stab it down
It feels good to be the one to break the skin
So look at me now, look at me now, yeah
You're face down, tell yourself you're happy once again
Right now you need this more than anything
But it's never enough, it's never enough for you

And it's the same old story
I've seen it all too many times
It's the fall from glory
That makes you feel alive

And you know the hardest truth can flow like water now
Break down, the moment that it touches your mouth
So place your lips against the bottle, take it down
It feels good to lose control of everything
But I wasn't myself, I wasn't myself, she said

And it's the same old story
I've seen it all too many times
It's the fall from glory
That makes you feel alive

It's the same old story
I've seen it all too many times
But it's not what you wanted

Can anyone feel? Can anyone see?
Yeah, can anyone taste the poison we need?
That we need...

So place your needle to the record, stab it down
It feels good to be the one to break the skin now
You're face down, this is what you wanted
This is what you wanted, this is what you wanted
And I know, but we've lost control...
Here we go!

Yeah, can anyone feel? Can anyone see?
Yeah, can anyone taste the poison we need?
Yeah, can anyone feel? Can anyone see?
Yeah, can anyone taste the poison we need?
That we need, that we need, yeah, that we need


5. STEREO

We're all born within
This thoughtless world
A generation bought and sold
By a reproduced, stolen, copied package
We've been taught to love this robotic formula
Built to please ignorant minds, uncultured masses
Do we know, that our ears have failed us now?

Stereo, stereo
Tired bullshit dressed in gold
Scan the youth, find the pieces
(Our ears have failed us now)
Stereo, stereo
Hear the world that you've created
Fall to pieces
We're all bought and sold!

Radio waves still transmit the same
Replica that wreaks of staleness and decay
Unless we resist, and open our eyes to this
Uniform and standard model they insist we consume
Our hearts have failed us now

Stereo, stereo
Tired bullshit dressed in gold
Scan the youth, find the pieces
(Our hearts have failed us now)
Stereo, stereo
Hear the world that you've created
Fall to pieces

But do we know
We've been bought! And sold
Yeah, bought and sold
We've been bought! And sold
Yeah, bought and sold
We've all been sold to a world that failed us

Stereo, stereo
Tired bullshit dressed in gold
Scan the youth, find the pieces
(Our hearts have failed us now)
Stereo, stereo
Hear the world that you've created
Fall to pieces

Stereo, stereo
Tired bullshit dressed in gold
Scan the youth, find the pieces
Stereo, stereo
Hear the world that you've created
Fall to pieces

We're all bought and sold, we're all bought and sold
We've been bought!


6. FIVE AGAINST THE WORLD

I never thought i'd see the day
That we honestly could say
We stand five against the world
And the doors are open
Through all those years
I would've died to be right here
I never thought of backing down
With one chance to make a sound

So we'll take our chance right now

These are the days we will remember
These are the days we will remember
And these are the days we won't forget
These are the days we won't forget
These are the times we've shared
These are the promises we've made
These are the days

Revolution dead and gone
Still integrity holds strong
We stand five against the odds
And rise through it all
Relentless form and dedication carried on
We stand tall and won't back down
With one chance to make a sound
So we'll take our chance right now

These are the days we will remember
These are the days we will remember
And these are the days we won't forget
These are the days we won't forget
These are the times we've shared
These are the promises we've made
These are the days
That we won't forget

Yah we carry on convictions
Learning as we go
Living out the only life we know

These are the days we will remember
These are the days we will remember
And these are the days we won't forget
These are the days we won't forget
These are the times we've shared
These are the promises we've made
These are the days

We won't forget
We won't forget
We won't forget


7. SLEEP

A million miles an hour
We swallow dotted lines tonight
And we ingest the pavement
Ignore the passing lights
And the streets they call our names
They call our names
We'll never feel the same

Tearing through this ghost town
They haunt the lifeless streets
Still it seems they call our names
They call our names
We'll never feel the same

Tonight will pass us by
As we're breathing in this moonlit air
Tonight will pass us by
As the world it seems to disappear
But i'm asleep at the wheel

Another destination far away from here
Where the streets they call our names
They call our names
We'll never feel the same
Again

But tonight will pass us by
As we're breathing in this moonlit air
Tonight will pass us by
As the world it seems to disappear
But i'm here with you
We will drive forever
We will drive forever
I'm here with you

But now i'm asleep at the wheel
And still the streets they call our names
They call our names
They call our names

But tonight will pass us by
As we're breathing in this moonlit air
Tonight will pass us by
As the world it seems to disappear
But i'm here with you
We will drive forever
We will drive forever
I'm here with you
We will drive forever
We will drive forever
We will drive forever
We will drive forever
We will drive forever
We will drive forever
I'm here with you
With you, with you, with you
I'm here with


8. MEATHEAD

Yeah!!
Drop the tailgate, drop the tailgate,
Fuck the jailbait, drop the water-weight
Roll the sleeves up, double XL let's go
(Malice and muscle)
Rock the dance floor, rock the dance floor
Throw the punch, man, get what you paid for
Toss a kid like a spiral football throw
Yeah!

We know, we know
You're throwing punches to prove yourself
And it's all for show
But you're not impressing me, yeah
This life was built on heart and soul
And it doesn't mean a thing to you
But it's all we know
It's all we know
It's all we know
It's all we know
But it's all we know

Yeah, go!
What's the game plan, what's the game plan?
Prove to them you're built like a real man
Flex your ego and dominate the show
(Jock manifesto)
No discretion, no progression
Open floor for unchecked aggression
You are the punch-line to this pathetic joke

We know, we know
You're throwing punches to prove yourself
And it's all for show
But you're not impressing me, yeah
This life was built on heart and soul
And it doesn't mean a thing to you
But it's all we know
It's all we know
It's all we know
It's all we know
But it's all we know!
But it's all we know!
But it's all we know!


9. MARCH OF THE DEAD

You tell yourself that you're not the same
As you stand in line, your time will all be wasted
Scum-littered earth, blind lead the dead
Blood-thirsty zombies cloned to reject
The colorful, the brightest eyes

So take these words for what they are
(Lights out! Lights out!)
That's what you say, what you say
So take these words for what they are
(Lights out! Lights out!)
That's what you say, what you say, yeah!

Deny the chance to think for yourself
You inherit lies, your time has all been wasted
Follow tradition to quench your thirst
And swallow vomit from ancestors
So shun the queer and praise the skies

So take these words for what they are
(Lights out! Lights out!)
That's what you say, what you say
So take these words for what they are
(Lights out! Lights out!)
That's what you say, what you say, yeah!

You're already dead! You're already dead!
You're already dead! You're already dead!

So now you stand in line
Embrace your leaders
Stand in line
And feast on their words
Stand in line
Embrace your leaders
Stand in line
Feast on their words
Refuse to learn
And choke on dead traditions
Are you gonna take your turn
Or just stand in line?

(Lights out! Lights out!)
So take these words for what they are
(Lights out! Lights out!)
That's what you say, what you say
(Lights out! Lights out!)
So take these words for what they are
(Lights out! Lights out!)
That's what you say, what you say, yeah!

Your denial will lead you single-file into the ground
You're already dead! You're already dead!
You're already dead! You're already dead!
You're dead!!


10. PAY YOUR ENEMY

Your face is never missed
Your cleverness, the cunning words did not exist
Bitter, bleak, you're fucking weak
You know you don't deserve a thing
You fight for pride to save your name
To heal the scars and erase the shame
Dig the grave, dig the grave
Save an ounce of dignity
'Cause there's nothing left to prove TO YOU!

You've become the enemy
Let it go (whoa, whoa!)
But you'll never take the blame
So let it go (whoa, whoa!)

I'll tear it down, arrogant, sycophant
Flatter everyone you can
I'm pulling teeth, 'cause talk is cheap
And my regrets are elbow-deep
So now it's time to chase the dream
With hand grenades and gasoline
Burn it down, burn it down
Every gracious word you speak
'Cause now I see right through, so fuck you!

You've become the enemy
Let it go (whoa, whoa!)
But you'll never take the blame
So let it go (whoa, whoa whoa!)

The time has come, you know
To just let go!
Just let it all go!

And it's not enough
That you're handing everything
Still you smile to my face
But this time, I'll tear it down!
I'll tear it down!
I'll tear it down
'Cause there's nothing left to prove to you

You've become the enemy
Let it go (whoa, whoa!)
But you'll never take the blame
So let it go (whoa, whoa whoa!)

You are your own worst enemy, we know
(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa whoa, whoa whoa!)


11. WAKE UP THE VOICELESS

I've swallowed every hook
Fallen for their disguise
Lived by the book
Felt the blade of the knife
As it pressed against my neck
We're taught to imitate
Segregate and divide
Do what we're told
Rise and fall with the tide
If we refuse to play the pawn
They will hear us screaming...

Wake up the voiceless!
Wake up the revolution!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
Wake up the voiceless!
Wake up the revolution!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!

They advertise your life
Through a blanket of lies
Expand the truth
So their profits will rise
Ignore the sacrifice
Liars casting stones
At the gods they create
We're amplified to provide what they take
If we refuse to play the role
They will hear us screaming...

Wake up the voiceless!
Wake up the revolution!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
Wake up the voiceless!
Wake up the revolution!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!

Go!!

They're the reason for defiance
We can't ignore
We're the promise of a new day
This is a war
The blood will spill
The voices will be heard
And tonight, we are alive

I've swallowed every hook
Fallen for their disguise
Lived by the book
Felt the blade of the knife
But I refuse to play the role
They will hear me screaming...

Wake up the voiceless!
Wake up the revolution!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
Wake up the voiceless!
Wake up the revolution!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
Wake up the voiceless!
Wake up the revolution!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
Wake up the voiceless!
Wake up the revolution!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
Whoa, we are alive tonight!
We are alive tonight!
We are alive tonight!
We are alive tonight!
We are alive tonight!


12. IS THIS MY FATE?, HE ASKED THEM

Do you really fucking think
That it's a choice, a way of life
Played by discrimination?
You're narrow-minded, quick to judge
With bible belt tunnel vision

This is ignorance
Failure to evolve
Is failure to us all
When will you learn
That this is where we fall
Failure to evolve
Is failure to us all
When will you learn
That this is where we fall
Where we fall

"Is this my fate!?" he asked them
They answered, condemning him to burn
Rejected, forsaken, for being fucking born
I can't believe that this is still a question
That needs an answer
A bigot's eyes judging lives
Based on the sex of who you fuck

This is ignorance
Failure to evolve
Is failure to us all
When will you learn
That this is where we fall
Failure to evolve
Is failure to us all
When will you learn
That is where we fall
Where we fall

Burn (burn), burn (burn)
Judged and condemned to
Burn (burn), burn (burn)
Judged and condemned to burn


When will you learn?
Will you learn?
When will you learn?
