Lyrics

1. RISING SUN

We are the light that guides you home
The light is always darkest before the dawn

This is the rising sun
It hangs from up above
Blinding the children
From the darknesses they've come to love
This is the rising sun
Forget the things you loved
Find the reason and the will to rise above

This is who we are
Screaming out
This is the year of the rising sun

We are the light that guides you home


2. DEATH BEDS

I know a place
Where the wounded go
For cold souls unaware
With no self control
I know a place
Where the broken and wounded go

You just sit back and listen
And just do what you're told
Never knowing how things
Could have been as you grow old
This is your time and it's wearing thin
Don't let this happen again and again

You can catch me in a storm
Of thoughts and prayers
Sleep away your American nightmare

I won't lie with you in your grave
Sleep away your American nightmare
Sleep, it. Sleep it away,
Your American nightmare

You just sit back and listen
And just do what you're told
Never knowing how things
Could have been as you grow old
This is your time and its wearing thin
Don't let this happen again and again

I may be wounded
I don't need to be saved
And though I'm wounded
I don't need to be saved

I won't lie, I won't lie,
With you in your grave

So put your fist in the air
To the sound of the new beat


3. MAD GIRL

You know I've got so much to say
But I'm infected, and you’re the new disease of today
You try and seize the day but your infected,
You’re the new disease of today
What do you know about relationships?
It's been awhile and I just cant handle this.
Faking smiles, breaking promises,
Somethings wrong and I just cant balance it.
I try and feel the same but in my dreams your all that I see
You keep her safe but you keep her from me
This is not what I want, this is not what I need.
You know that I know that we're infected
She's still mine she belongs to me
This is not what I want, this is not what I need.
You know that I know that we're infected.
I drink too much just to fall asleep,
Cause in my dreams you’re all I see.
No matter what you did or who fucked
I'd go through hell for you no matter.
I'd go through hell for you no matter what,
This is not what I want this is not what I need,
No matter what you did or who you fucked,
This is not what I want this is not what I need,
I'd go through hell for you no matter what,
This is not what I want this is not what I need.
No matter what you did or who you fucked
I'd go through hell for you no matter what.
This isn't over this isn't over
Theres something left in me
This isn't over this isn't over
And I hope you feel the same
I'll show you no love


4. BRING IT BACK TO THE STREETS

When there was a sickness, there was a cure
Right outside on the streets at the record store
There once were heros that we looked up to
We never thought that we would do the things that they'd do

Their presence is long gone
Disconnected from the world that we grew up on
Nothing will ever make as much of an impact
When you hear these words will they make you react

When there was a sickness, there was a cure
Right outside on the streets at the record store
There once were heros that we looked up to
We never thought that we would do the things that they'd do

'Cause if this world is all about digital lives
I can say that I'm ready to die
One time, when you need to be saved
With a kick and a push you can get away
One time, when you need to be saved
You can go and get lost in a mixtape

'Cause if this world is all about digital lives
I can say that I'm ready to die

Since we can't live in yesterday
Say goodbye to the past as the world turns grey
Since we can't live in yesterday
We can look to the future but it's all the same
This generation has gone up in flames
Because with all hope gone there is no cause for a change
We know it's inside us all and the world has made it harder
To latch onto the sound of being set free

Disconnected from the world that we grew up on
Bring it back to the streets


5. IMEMBER

And when you're gone we'll hang a black flag
With a lighthouse shining

Nobody should have to settle for this
This is not how it's supposed to be
In one ear and out of the other
This is not how it's supposed to be

Now easy does it, because the kids love it
This is where thoughts go to die
Make no mistake there is nothing the same between you and I

I would never call it jealousy
Because what you have is not what we came here to need
I would call it sympathy
Because what you do is a tragedy

You've been given a stage and you choose
To use it to pass through a phase
Brainless and mindless like you've been drinking and
Someone slipped you a bad drug
Stuck on life support and I'm right by your side
And I'll pull the plug
I'm right by your side, I'll pull the plug on your shit

And when you're gone we'll hang a black flag
With a lighthouse shining

This is where it ends
I'm sick of all the secrets you've been keeping
And all the kids you've been deceiving
Make no mistake, there is nothing the same between you and I

You, you're just an image for a show
You're just a gimmick with no goals
And your intentions are terrible
There's no soul

So lean on your crutch because it must be
Too hard for you to stand
Spineless and arrogant. Must be hard for you to stand
So ride it out because I know it will be over soon
I won't swallow my pride, and pat the backs of who I despise
I swear this will be over soon

And when you're gone we'll hang a black flag
With a lighthouse shining


6. DEAD RABBITS

You want a war? Meet the militia
Won't stand around and watch the rich get richer
You ask for more? Here's the big picture
Genocide while the sick get sicker

They say that armies can come in ones and twos
Well I got three friends that want to meet you
Forfeit is not an option in this fight
While my five fingers are clenched this tight

To all my comrades, to my complacent friends
To all those living imprisoned lives until the end
We have each other, this band of brothers
We'll live our lives cause we'll never have another

Enough is enough when you got no one to trust
No more innocent victims in the world that we live in
If we take command I know that we can
Break the system

I never thought that we'd all be in this position
So we sit and wait as we watch and listen
It's time to step up, step up, step up and go the distance
I said get up get up and tear it down

It won't stop it won't it won't stop
We won't stop we won't we won't stop

You want a war? Meet the militia
Won't stand around to watch the rich get richer
We won't stop we won't we won't stop
You ask for more? Here's the big picture
Genocide while the sick get sicker
It won't stop it won't it won't stop

Enough is enough when you got no one to trust
No more innocent victims in the world that we live in
If we take command I know that we can
Break the system

I know that you and I will meet on the front line
Singing I'm not afraid anymore
I know you and I will meet on the front line
Because this is what we're fighting for

Enough is enough when you got no one to trust
And I can say I'm not afraid anymore
You're on the front line
Wake up


7. PREY

You claim to be this false identity
But I can only see a villain, an enemy
Get off your knees, it shouldn't matter if you believed
Spit down the throat of the man that made you
And laugh in the face of the man that saved you.

Break the needle from it's eye,
Did you think that you would pass through?
You fucking know!
Separate the blood from it's lover and the romance dies too.

I see you laugh when you pray
I see no virtue in the words that you say
I've questioned your faith for days and days
Born again but you can't be saved

You spread the word because you think that you must
Living by the words "In God We Trust"
But we don't trust you

You can cash your checks from the good book
so you can buy yourself a crown
Just sign your name on the cross and turn it upside down

Liars, Thieves, Villains, Enemies

Set your wings that have carried you this far to flames

Spit down the throat of the man that made you
And laugh in the face of the man that saved you

Break the needle from it's eye,
Did you think that you would pass through?
You fucking know!
Separate the blood from it's lover and the romance dies too.

If that white light would shine brighter
Than I'd love to watch you burn


8. CENTER OF ATTENTION

If the whole world revolves around you
Then what happens to me,
What about me?
If you’re not content with the ones you loved
What happens to me,
What about me?

Hearts pumping, hearts pumping
Do you know that our heart’s still beating?
Hearts pumping, hearts pumping
Would you know if we even stopped breathing?

How does it feel to reach your goals,
Funded by another
How could you bankrupt the ones
Who put you up while they went under

I refuse to believe
That these material things
Will be enough to feed
Your hungering incessant greed.

It’s never enough
It’s never enough for you

Hearts pumping, hearts pumping
Do you know that our heart’s still beating?
Hearts pumping, hearts pumping
Would you know if we even stopped breathing?

So blind that even couldn’t make you see
The wealth I need lies within my family

If the whole world revolves around you
Then what happens to me,
What about me?
If you’re not content with the ones you loved
What happens to me,
What about me?

All the money in the world can’t buy you a home
All the diamonds in the world and you’re still alone


9. THE LAUGHING MAN

It’s a trap
And I feel like I’m under attack
Should I speak the words I mean or should I just hold back?
With so much negativity,
How can you really see the best of me?
…And who’s to blame when blaming is the recipe
A mix of misery and apathy
This is a trap
And I should have seen it coming

“..And that’s the trouble,
You can’t ever find a place that’s peaceful because
there isn’t any. You may think there is,
But once you get there when you’re not
looking they’ll sneak up and write ‘Fuck You’
Right under your nose…”
(The catcher in the rye)

This is a trap
I feel set up like I’m under attack
This is a trap
Should I say what I mean
Or should I just hold back?
You’re the unwanted ones
You’re the unwanted ones
Misery - Apathy

Today can be the first day of your life
Don’t shoot me down just to put us in the same place
Today can be the first day of your life
Wake up today and give this world a new face
Today can be the first day of your life
Today can be the first day of your life


10. THE ESCAPE ARTIST

When I was nineteen I saw my girlfriend get beaten
She had black and blues that revealed the mistreatment
Feeling trapped in hell when you want to escape
It’s crazy in her eyes it’s a common place

Remember that night there was that fight and
I heard those screams from upstairs
Man we were only in our teenage years
And fucking alcohol already abused us
It was too much
Bloody mary breakfast, dinner and lunch
Done turning water to wine
You should have never crossed her line
Done turning water to wine
You did this for the last time

This dare I say some might call a family
Run on tears and half-hearted apologies
And forgiveness only given from fear

These common events roll off ice-cold shoulders
Like water on wax
No sweat off your back
But it digs like a thorn in your side
Paralyze paralyzed
I bet a part of you died
I tried so hard to steal the fear from your eyes
Paralyze paralyzed
Felt like a part of me died

Remember the night, the ambulance and the fight?
Tell us what happened there
We’re in the E.R. and you’re still keeping secrets
We see that gash on your brow
The blood, it was too much
Mary’s bloody cause she’s drinking too much
Done turning water to wine
You should have never crossed her line
Done turning water to wine
You did this for the last time

When I was nineteen I saw my girlfriend get beaten
She had black and blues that revealed the mistreatment
Feeling trapped in hell when you want to escape
It’s crazy in her eyes it’s a common place

Too afraid to show your scars
But girl you deserve an applause
No better time than now to stand tall stand strong
Stand tall stand strong
Stand tall stand strong


11. CRASHING DOWN

Burning bridges connect me to this city
Street lights go out I'm lost but I'm free
There's a pain in my heart on this lonely road
Wherever I wake up I'll have to call it home

I can't pretend that I am something that I am not
But the life that I had chose is all that I got
And I feel alive

I'm never there and I'm sorry I'm not
Don't listen to them when they say I forgot
When I left it wasn't goodbye
I'm still here I never left your side

Familiar streets I can't find them now
A different city, a different town
Sing the songs of it crashing down
Wishing I was Long Island bound
But I've lost my way back to these unfamiliar grounds
Sing the songs of it crashing down

Burning bridges connect me to this city
Street lights go out I'm lost but I'm free
There's a pain in my heart on this lonely road
Wherever I wake up I'll have to call it home

I can't pretend that I am something that I am not
But the life that I had chose is all that I got
... And I feel alive

So let's all sing songs of it crashing down
Wishing I was Long Island bound
