Track Name: Blood From a Stone
Surrounded by this slow decay
WHOA!
I watch my feeble life worsen every single day
I need something to light the way
WHOA!
I’ve got the evidence right in front of me
What I want
What I need
What I’ve got
everything
I’m barely standing on my own
WHOA
When every instinct that I have is blood from a stone
This weakness at my core unknown
WHOA
I’m gonna fill that hole until it’s gone
What I want
What I need
What I’ve got
everything (EVERYTHING)
I am what I allow myself to become
When every effort’s squeezing blood from a stone
Blood from a stone
Blood from a stone
There’s nothing left!
Track Name: Conscientious Objector
We've the heard the call
and seen the results
its real its real
but I don't feel a thing
No broken lines
Anticipated
its real its real
but I don't feel a thing
Defined by senses
There's no action
Divine and defenseless
There's no action
And I wont make that choice
We know the reasons
we see the pieces
its real its real
but I don't feel a thing
all free divisions
we're barely living
it's real it's real
but I don't feel a thing
Defined by senses
There's no action
Divine and defenseless
There's no action
And I wont make that choice
its real, its real, its real
its real, its real, its real
and I can't decide for
the masses now unsure
one reason to die for
when nothing seems to change at all
Track Name: Brutal Ground
It was irrelevant banter
Until they came into our homes
Oh
We should stay pacified and tied
Which makes us so easy to own
Oh
That’s it! Now just obey
And don’t you even wonder why
they are controlling your minds
How much are we willing to give
Before they take it all away
Oh
And did we even recognize
The day they turned us all into slaves
Oh
That’s it! Now just obey
And don’t you even wonder why
they are controlling your minds
And though we never saw the lines
They've taken every part of
They will take everything that makes
It worthwhile to be alive
I know I’ve seen the bitter end
The only sound conclusion
Ordered by this passing trend
Perhaps it’s better left unsaid
To fall on known conventions
Behave as we’re born and bred
secede
And tame this brutal
Secede Tame this brutal ground.
Track Name: PUSHMOSHCROWDKILL (rule #3)
There's no deception,
though I'm not a fool
I know it's just a lullaby.
Still it directs me,
another innocent
I'm only biding my time
Oh God Save
Oh God Save Me
I got it, I feel it,
Whatever's holding us back
It's not that hard to see
I got it, I feel it,
Whatever's holding us back
We’ve got your Separation
Separation
Separate us.
I'm not that eager to see what's coming next
as the blood begins to flow
I'm not that eager to see what's coming next
as the blood
I'm not that eager to see,
I'm not that eager to know
as the blood begins to flow
I'm not that eager to see,
I'm not that eager to know
as the blood
Track Name: Cepholapods
You think we need another way?
But there’s no evidence to see
NO
So damn irrelevant
And we don’t need it
We’re just a product of our adolescent minds
What we’ve done
where we’ve been
Under this we are defined
And when our time has come the world will end in kind
What we’ve done
where we’ve been
Nothing else exists in time
All I know.
Know
Track Name: Slugger
One more lesson learned again
time will tell what we have forgot
Oh yea, you got it, but it aint close to over
Oh no, you lost it, how 'bout another sermon?
You never see what's coming now
Oh yea they'll put you in the ground
Oh yea, you got it, but it aint close to over
Oh no, you lost it, how 'bout another sermon?
It's like we never saw the point
come on, we're all forgetting
not dead
don't act like you don't have a choice
not dead
It's like we never saw the point
come on, we're all forgetting
Not dead
don't act like you don't have a choice
Not dead
don't act like you don't have a choice
when will you ever learn we're
no we aint dead
Not dead
