It starts out as a want But now it's planted a seed Before you know it it's grown Until it's become a need The roots grow deep And yet it still erodes It keeps getting bigger and bigger And bigger until it implodes Until there's... Nothing left to do but to watch the sun swallow the earth There's Nothing left but to watch the world burn And when everything you've ever known is gone in a flash There will be nothing left to do but to choke on the ashes now there's... Nothing left to do but to watch the sun swallow the earth There's Nothing left but to watch the world burn And when everything you've ever known is gone in a flash There will be nothing left to do but to choke on the ash It starts out as a lust And grows into a greed Before we even begin we're now drowning in sin And there nothing left to do but bleed The fire starts out as warmth And grows into the rage Everything that you know is gone And hate takes center stage watch the world burn... and we all fade away...

We've heard the last cries of a dying nation Giving those in power cause for celebration The founding fathers lay and rot inside their graves While this great and mighty country turns us all into slaves The time is over to uphold the constitution We need nothing less than a violent revolution Get up get up It's time to get on your feet So put your fists in the air because it's going down tonight Get up get up It's time to take to the streets Will you be just one more statistic or will you stand up and fight? Age of diplomacy ended decades ago When the wealthy and the greedy made democracy just for show A nation under god is nothing but a schism 'Cause the only god we worship here is Capitalism They've gotten off easy for far too long We can't expect them to get better when they think they've done thing wrong Get up get up It's time to get on your feet So put your fists in the air because it's going down tonight Get up get up It's time to take to the streets Will you be just one more statistic or will you stand up and fight? Get up get up It's time to get on your feet So put your fists in the air because it's going down tonight Get up get up It's time to take to the streets Will you be just one more statistic or will you stand up and fucking fight? The world is coming to the final act Continue as part of the problem or formulate plan of attack Your vote means nothing, actions speak louder than words So when no one stops to listen: time to make yourself be heard Get up get up It's time to get on your feet So put your fists in the air because it's going down tonight Get up get up It's time to take to the streets Will you be just one more statistic or will you stand up and fight? Get up get up It's time to get on your feet So put your fists in the air because it's going down tonight Get up get up It's time to take to the streets Will you be just one more statistic or will you stand up and fucking fight? Get up get up Get up get up Stand up and fucking fight.

Another stone that has been left unturned Another torch that continues to burn Break the bones tear the tendons Pull me into the dirt Rise up, you know I'm gonna make it hurt Because I... am the thorn in your I... am the one who won't die Buried beneath your lie You can't break me I'm the rebellion that you cannot put down An insurrection rising up from the ground Chain me up, tie me down Whip me until I bleed A little mutiny is what this world needs Eternal light that can be seen through the dark Undying fire that begins with a spark Tear the soul from the body But the fire burns on Too hot to stamp out, to enraged to be gone, because- I... am the thorn in your I... am the one who won't die Buried beneath your lie You must know that I Am the thorn in your eye Am the one who won't die The one you can't nullify You can't break me

Second Skin 06:53
Single file, step in line, every single time Undefined and maligned until your role is assigned Another soul brought to life, welcome to mankind Hope you're ready to be left behind... Born into servitude and forced prostration Constant abuse presents a complication A perfect essence ready to transcend Becoming something that they can't comprehend Set your core to overheat No one can tell you that you're incomplete Never back down, never accept defeat Their way of thinking is obsolete Feeling alone even when surrounded Resilience and resistance compounded An axiom they will never abide Our truth is something that we can't keep inside (I pull on my second skin, step back and get ready for the war to begin) Keep pushing forward Keep pushing on Steel yourselves because the real fight has just begun Step out of line Strength from within Finally alive in my second skin (Inside my second skin) Maybe alone but never forsaken Treading upon the path less taken Simply existing is not enough Open your eyes, arise, awaken Keep pushing forward Keep pushing on Steel yourselves because the real fight has just begun Step out of line Strength from within Finally alive in my second skin Keep pushing hard Keep pushing on The fight ends when every last one has withdrawn Step out of line Strength from within We are alive in our second skin System reset: insufficient Self-destruct or self-sufficient Total system annihilation Foreign element elimination Rules we cannot abide Free will means we're free to decide So cut their power and blackout Our new world is free of doubt Plant the charges on the structure Make way for the counter-culture Resistance: The only way Cease society's decay Blind masses make decisions Humankind in subdivisions United under variation Is the only way to vindication

Indivisible 05:41
We are not kindred spirits We're more like yin and yang Fighting, tumbling, spinning, but Underneath we're the same And though you fear my distance You'll see its just a feint Our bonds are tied with canvas and This space is just more paint If you leave I'll give you a piece of me I will find a way to breath it Into a place where you can keep it But if you stay I know we can find a way I will fight with all my heart Every single beating part In your hands and in your soul We're indivisible We are not calm civilians We're more like warriors Although we have no weapons, Just our hands and our words But we fight with keys and plectrums Dance with the sun and moon We know there is no forever But mo[u]rning comes to soon If you leave I'll give you a piece of me I will find a way to breath it Into a place where you can keep it But if you stay I know we can find a way I will fight with all my heart Every single beating part In your hands and in your soul We're indivisible
