1. ANTI-SOCIAL

I won't be nervous
When everybody around us
Says "God, we don't deserve this"
And begs before they accept our fate
I want the world but I'm not
Prepared to work for a change
I think I'd rather be dead

I'm not anti-social, I'm anti-bullshit
I'm not anti-social, I'm anti-bullshit

You're gonna follow like a freelance sucker of the next biggest trend
We're pissing into the wind, to be heard by the indifferent
Shit talker, you've double crossed your own
You're gonna suffer like a rat in the smoke

How the hell am I supposed to know
We're only human is a valid excuse
For why my mind is polluted
Do you want the truth or do you want to assume it?

I'm not anti-social, I'm anti-bullshit
I'm not anti-social, I'm anti-bullshit

So raise it up, up, up
If you're sick of this fake smile politics
Up, up if you're sick of this race we're running
What you living for if you can't even feel it?
What is living without letting go

How the hell am I supposed to know
We're only human is a valid excuse
For why my mind's polluted
Do you want the truth or do you want to assume it?

Serves you right, to justify the face that keeps you up at night
The mask you wear to cover it up and we can see it in your eyes
Serves you right, to justify the face that keeps you up at night
The mask you wear to cover it up and I can see it in your eyes

I'm sick of the sound
I'm sick of the hand we've been dealt
Sick from the drugs that they tell me to take
I'm sick of the drugs that we take to rebel
Sick of corruption in wealth
Sick of corruption itself
Sick of division in colour, religion
When we're all the same

I'm not anti-social, I'm anti-bullshit
I'm not anti-social, I'm anti-bullshit

Just leave it alone
My head's about to explode
So sick of the same sound syndrome
Thank fuck for headphones


2. I'VE SEEN IT ALL

We won't give up
We'll wait just a little more
We'll bite our tongues
This pain that we can't ignore (Whoa-oh-oh)
Tell me a reason to carry on (Whoa-oh-oh)
When all I can see is the cracks in the wall

Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh

Maybe we're all insignificant
Pulling in different directions
To the edge of this prison
Are we living in hell?
Reluctant, never the culprit
A stick in the mud
We're so self-destructive
We're never gonna wake, never gonna wake up

Even if I say what's on my mind
I fear I waste my time
So please don't mind me
If I take my time

I've seen it all
And I've felt nothing
Don't want no more
So show me your sins
I've seen it all
And I've found nothing
When all I can see is
The cracks in the wall

No direction like the paths that I walk
Through the fading light of all we've destroyed
The siren sings that song we adore
And we won't wake up
If we can't break or scratch the surface
Redefine the words we obey
If we idolise our burdens
We're never gonna wake, never gonna wake up

Maybe we're all insignificant
Pulling in different directions
To the edge of this prison
Are we living in hell?
Our homes like galleries
We decorate the walls with our sins
Our lives so fragile
But we live like we're invincible

I've seen it all
And I've felt nothing
Don't want no more
So show me your sins
I've seen it all
And I've felt nothing
Don't want no more
So show me your sins
I've seen seen it all
And I've found nothing
When all I can see is
The cracks in the wall

(We know something's wrong)
But we still carry on

We won't give up
We'll wait just a little more
Tell me a reason

Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh


3. INSPIRE

If this is the epitome of our species
I can't see the forest for the trees
If we don't heal before we realise
The scale of the problem within
Tell me that you're okay not knowing
Will you fall into the ether with me?
If only we could feel complete without it
Will you let it in?

To the west, to the west
Economy before acceptance
A worth over intelligence
We all can be accepted in hell
If we're going nowhere
You know that they don't care
We are the symptoms of a careless empire

Disorder, your web swings catching everything
As far as I can see
We are draped in the diminishing
But nothing's as it seems

To the west, to the west
Economy before acceptance
A worth over intelligence
We all can be accepted in hell
If we're going nowhere
You know that they don't care
We are the symptoms of a careless empire

We've been grazed by the outbreak
We've been nettled by the fakes
Snakes and mistakes and time again we've shown

You can't even wait till the dust has settled
Run straight with your head down from the battle
Are you safe jumping in a grave you can't dig yourself out of?
Why'd you have to wait till the warning comes in avalanche form?
Should've put your hands up but you thought you better point the blame
Either way, it points back and you can't escape

If this is the epitome of our species
I can't see the forest for the trees
If we don't heal before we realise
The scale of the problem within

And if I inspire you, you inspire me
We're breaking the mould together
You set me free
I inspire you, you inspire me
We're breaking the mould together
You set me free

To the west, to the west
Economy before acceptance
A worth over intelligence
We all can be accepted in hell
If we're going nowhere
You know that they don't care
We are the symptoms of a careless empire


4. SO WHAT?

I'll be waiting for the moment
When you're out of your comfort zone
Are you afraid of realising we're out of control?
Did you know you'll never know?
Did you know that you'll never know?

So what if I die young, so what if I live forever?
If all we love will leave us in the end, let's die together

It's a false sense of security that will outlive us all
Another step in the wrong direction and we'll cut to the core
I wouldn't have to stab you in the back
If you'd just turn and face me
(Will you just turn and face me?)

I'll be waiting for the moment
When you're out of your comfort zone
Are you afraid of realising we're out of control?
Did you know you'll never know?
Did you know that you'll never know?

It's a false sense of authority that will tear us apart
Another step in the wrong direction and we'll cut to the core

If we don't let go
Of our saviours
If we don't let go
Of our saviours

Because the truth owes us nothing
The guilt we feel is showing
Look away, don't look away, don't look away

I wouldn't have to stab you in the back
If you'd just turn and face me
(Will you just turn and face me?)

We're all bastards to our demons and sinners to our angels
But neither know who we are
Would you really want the truth if you had the chance?
Don't answer, it's too soon
We've been through worse but we'll play dead
While you keep us in the dark
(You only wrote this for the money, didn't you?)

They keep us in the dark

I'll be waiting for the moment
When you're out of your comfort zone
Are you afraid of realising we're out of control?
Did you know you'll never know?
Did you know that you'll never know?

I'll be waiting for the moment
When you're out of your comfort zone
Are you afraid of realising we're out of control?
Did you know you'll never know?
Did you know that you'll never know?

(I'll be waiting)
Did you know, did you know, did you know you'll never know?
(I'll be waiting)
Did you know, did you know, did you know you'll never know?
(I'll be waiting)
Did you know, did you know, did you know you'll never know?
(I'll be waiting)
Did you know, did you know, did you know you'll never know?

So what if I die young, so what if I live forever?
If all we love will leave us in the end, let's die together


5. THE GUILTY PARTY

I don't need to feel like I can't do this all on my own

Welcome to the guilty party

This'll be the last time that you see us playing dead (yeah)
We're all so malignant, bitter and twisted
It's just another blame-game while you cry for help (yeah)
Good grief let go

Defeatist
You let your demons hold you
Unforsaken
Like getting blood from a stone
You try to shake them
But they won't let you go
And we don't have the time to stop and look
At all we destroyed

With an idle mind in a real life
It's every man for himself if we're gonna survive
And when the lights go out this time
This time there's gonna be a riot, woah

One nail, outs the other
One nail, outs the other
One nail, outs the other
We shed our skin as we try to recover

And your eyes shine the sun
And your skin blows the wind
And your eyes shine the sun
And your skin blows the wind

And your eyes
I don't need to feel like I can't do this all on my own
Eyes
I don't need to feel like I can't do this all on my own

With an idle mind in a real life
It's every man for himself if we're gonna survive
And when the lights go out this time
This time there's gonna be a riot, woah

No heroine, no redeemer
Life's anaesthetic is sleep

Welcome to the guilty party
Everything you've done
Everything you've done
You've undone with this

Shut up

Your eyes shine the sun
Your skin blows the wind
And your eyes shine the sun
And your skin blows the wind

And your eyes
I don't need to feel like I can't do this all on my own
Eyes
I don't need to feel like I can't do this all on my own

I don't need to feel like I can't do this all on my own


6. HAUNT ME

We won't leave till you realise
These are the reasons why we won't survive on our own
Nobody gets left behind
(1, 2, 3, 4)

Don't say you didn't see it coming
Now the world's in disarray
And all that I have said comes back to haunt me

I didn't see the lights
Even though they're blinding me right in the eyes
Couldn't read the signs
Telling me to swim against the current as they're pulling me under

I'm intoxicated, led astray by the fake
Unconscious to the right solution
Our minds are barely moving
We might deserve a second chance
If I can prove we're alive

Don't say you didn't see it coming
Now the world's in disarray
And all that I have said comes back to haunt me
Don't say you couldn't see the warnings
Or the wolves outside the gates
And all that I have said comes back to haunt me

We won't leave till you realise
These are the reasons why we won't survive on our own
Nobody gets left behind

(Who told you it's) ours for the taking
Every man for himself
In favour of all who trade intelligence
Order for the selfish who don't deserve a second chance
If they're still picking a side

It's the dose that makes it poisonous
It tastes bitter but we're keeping our head above the surface
We're still alive although we've been bitten
It's like a sickness written into our anatomy
This is the sound of no one listening to you running your mouth
Are you thinking out loud or just can't see through the amount of shit
You feel the need to surround yourself with
You feel the need to surround yourself with
Back up, I'm sick of telling you enough is enough

It takes my breath away
But I don't feel like I deserve the taste
You're missing the point, can't understand my pain
Some people never change
It's like a fire without a flame

Don't say you didn't see it coming
Now the world's in disarray
And all that I have said comes back to haunt me

Don't say you didn't see it coming
Now the world's in disarray
And all that I have said comes back to haunt me
Don't say you couldn't see the warnings
Or the wolves outside the gates
And all that I have said comes back to haunt me

It takes my breath away
But I don't feel like I deserve the taste
You're missing the point, can't understand my pain
Some people never change
It's like a fire without a flame


7. ELEPHANT

Everywhere I turn, there's a life on the line
A cure for a price and fuck it, there's an elephant in the room
Turn the page, another headline that you already knew
Paint the picture of a lie behind the truth
We're on a flatline in a sorry state of affairs
Losing the will to live like we're going nowhere
They put the frighteners on us but we all hide something

Enough is enough
I keep asking myself why us?
Enough is enough
I keep killing myself because

You said we're only as strong as the fears we confront on the way
They won't find me praying for a hero that hides like our tears from the pain
While the angels sing
"Everything will be okay"
Cross my fingers, point the blame
I don't believe a word they say
"Everything will be okay"
Cross my fingers, point the blame
I don't believe a word they say

I'd like to think that I don't believe in anything
I'm just a heathen in disbelief
And I know, when I'm desperate I still call, don't we all?

Enough is enough
We can't see what's in front of us
Enough is enough
Stop the world, I want to get off

You said we're only as strong as the fears we confront on the way
They won't find me praying for a hero that hides like our tears from the pain

You said we're only as strong as the fears we confront on the way
They won't find me praying for a hero that hides like our tears from the pain
While the angels sing
"Everything will be okay"
Cross my fingers, point the blame
I don't believe a word they say
"Everything will be okay"
Cross my fingers, point the blame
I don't believe a word they say

Everywhere I turn
There's a life on the line, a cure for a price and fuck it
There's an elephant in the room
Turn the page, another headline that you already knew
Clean the slate with the water we pollute
How many times do I have to disobey to be saved?
We're already the cause but we call it a mistake, I believed it
Even if it's just a figure of our imagination
The ground we walk is sacred but the grave we make is closer to hell

We all hide something
We all hide something
We all hide something


8. SET YOU FREE

Tell me, does it set you free?
And if it does then you don't need to speak
I can see it in your eyes, it's all you need
And now that I feel alive without needing to justify the meaning

Tell me, does it set you free?
Tell me, does it set you free?
Liberate me!

We came from nothing but the truth, we won't fall
For your excuses
Each disguise gets more obvious
We'll see right through it
All I believe is the way we treat each other comes 'round
Back around

What if I told you we won't take no for an answer?
Hope your system has a, has a plan to withstand us
What if I told you we don't fit your demographic?
We can see through the mask you hide beneath

Where are you now
That all your lies are crumbling?

No time for secrets
I've heard it all, believe me
When I say the walls are paper thin
We can hear everything
And you don't need to speak at all
It feels like it's all been said before
You're no longer on your own

I'll feel it all when I sleep tonight
I've seen it all but I can't see the light
Lead me astray this time
I've seen it all

What if I told you we won't take no for an answer?
Hope your system has a, has a plan to withstand us
What if I told you we don't fit your demographic?
We can see through the mask you hide beneath

Tell me, does it set you free?
And if it does then you don't need to speak
I can see it in your eyes, it's all you need
And now that I feel alive without needing to justify the meaning

No time for secrets
I've heard it all, believe me
When I say the walls are paper thin
We can hear everything
And you don't need to speak at all
It feels like it's all been said before
You're no longer on your own

Tell me, does it set you free?

When will we adopt
The feeling that we belong to each other
Or are we too far gone?
Blind-sided, it's turning on us
Six foot above contradiction
Just look at what we've become


9. GOOD GRIEF

Separate the crowd, we stand alone together
Burning bridges for the better in this fire
What I see in me, I see it in another
I will treat you like a brother in this

I've been here a thousand times before
Your house is on fire and you're painting the walls
If I've been here a thousand times then can I call it home?
Had to break an entry, find acceptance
Hold on to the only thing that I swear I won't forget

There's no right thing you're supposed to be, no right story you're supposed to believe
There's a language we all speak

Separate the crowd, we stand alone together
Burning bridges for the better in this fire
What I see in me, I see it in another
I will treat you like a brother in this

I've been here a thousand times before
Your house is on fire and you're painting the walls
It's just another nightmare
This vicious cycle got us feeling like it's too late
Nightmare, "We're only human" doesn't resonate with me no more

Separate the crowd, we stand alone together
Burning bridges for the better in this fire
What I see in me, I see it in another
I will treat you like a brother in this
Are we just stating the obvious, breaking our promises, like you said we always would?
We've dug this ground before and it's nothing but a wasteland apocalypse
And now we're just passengers
We've come too far, we can't turn this around

We used to live, now all we do is analyze
False promises, empty threats, now we've got nothing left
We want to redeem but we won't unhand the knife
Can't you see starry eyes?
You blink when you lie

We used to live, now all we do is analyze
False promises, empty threats, now we've got nothing left
We want to redeem but we won't unhand the knife
Can't you see starry eyes?
You blink when you lie


10. BACK OF MY MIND

Don't wanna be awake
(Don't wanna sleep)
Will you pacify me?
Lights out, we'll see what lies beneath

Nocturnal highs
When you wanna lay down and play dead
Concise uneasy eyes
You choose when you see it and when you don't

I wanna shed my skin
I wanna see who I really am
I wanna swim with all that drags me in
Every time

Don't wanna be awake
(Don't wanna sleep)
Will you pacify me?
Lights out, we'll see what lies beneath

Who are all these people in the back of my mind?
(I wanna run away)
They shout when I sleep and when I close my eyes
They're all I can see
Who are all these people in the back of my mind?
(I wanna run away)
Distance, if you don't keep it
Wait till the light's out, then you'll see me

These words don't rectify our plight
Are you satisfied this time?
If we're still in harm's way
Do not resuscitate me

I wanna shed my skin
I wanna see who I really am
I wanna swim with all that drags me in
Every time
I wanna escape, I can't take the great divide
I've seen all I need to see
If only we could take a leap of faith to beyond the surface
We will see what lies beneath

Who are all these people in the back of my mind?
(I wanna run away)
They shout when I sleep and when I close my eyes
They're all I can see

Who are all these people in the back of my mind?
(I wanna run away)
They shout when I sleep and when I close my eyes
They're all I can see
Who are all these people in the back of my mind?
(I wanna run away)
Distance, if you don't keep it
Wait till the light's out, then you'll see me

I'm the face in the river, reflection in the mirror that made you turn
I'm the creature at the end of the bed
I'm a projection of the thoughts in your head
(Don't wanna be awake)
I'm the million different effigies trapped under your skin that make you burn
(Don't wanna be awake)
I'll be the beat in your pulse when I'm beatin' you to a pulp, one day you'll learn
(Don't wanna be awake)
Urgh, I'm the voice of the people, the speaker of evil
Cemetery of sound, but tonight this is my battleground

Tonight this is my battleground
Bang your fucking head


11. GATES OF PARADISE

At the gates of paradise
Waiting for our names to call from above
There's an angel inside of us
If you turn a blind eye and trust that
I'll be better this time around

You can do anything you wanna fucking do
The rules were made to be disputed by the truth
Did no one tell you to let go of the reins?
Did no one tell you they manipulate?

Send out the press, tell 'em have it for nothing
Feast like a savage would on its casualty
(Inform the masses that)
This is what you get when you don't break the habit
We breed the selfish
Abandon what good and bad really meant

At the gates of paradise
Waiting for our names to call from above
There's an angel inside of us
If you turn a blind eye and trust that
I'll be better this time around

You can do anything you wanna fucking do
The rules were made to be disputed by the truth
Did no one tell you to let go of the reins?
Did no one tell you they manipulate?

Safe to say we'll never know
How it would've been if it was to go
Are we better off on our own?

At the gates of paradise
Waiting for our names to call from above
There's an angel inside of us
If you turn a blind eye and trust that
I'll be better this time around

Can you feel it caressing around you every nerve?
It's too late for resolve, we're not long for this world
We're digging deeper like a parasite
It's time to wake up while we're still alive

You're only listening 'cos no one's got anything better to say
We're still singing, "Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me"
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah

Hate to say we're biding our time
Are you past the point of no return?
Do your symptoms leave you satisfied?
Keep your demons buried deep inside

We've got everyone to follow
But there's no one left to walk with
The shallow path of honesty
Residing in our promise
And this will haunt us always
Waking from the truth we lie in mourning

Safe to say we'll never know
How it would've been if it was to go the other way
I like to say we're better off on our own
Safe to say we'll never know
How it would've been if it was to go the other way
I like to say we're better off on our own
Safe to say we'll never know
How it would've been if it was to go the other way
I like to say we're better off on our own
Safe to say we'll never know
How it would've been if it was to go the other way
I like to say we're better off on our own
