Track Name: The Brute / Wolf 359
Wolf 359

Do you have what it takes?
Do you have the X factor?
Alter your values to line up with ours
Faithfully serve this machine

Do what’s expected
Silence your conscience
Pledge your allegiance
The adequate drone
Faithfully serve this machine

359
I can no longer dismiss
359
This pulse in my head
359
The circuitry mounts
359
The takeover has begun

Do you have the game changer, the paradigm shift?
Are you thinking outside of the box?
Do you have enough bandwidth to leverage resources
To complete your directives on time?
TOEING THE LINE, REPEAT WHAT YOU’RE TOLD
It’s mission critical
Keep it in black, never the red
Monetize, incentivize
MOVE THE NEEDLE

Core competency equals core mediocrity
Extract the max across the piece
A buy-in to their monotony

359
I cannot dismiss
359
This pulse in my head
359
Their circuitry mounts
359
THE WAR HAS BEGUN
Track Name: Kings, Rulers & Statesmen
The kings rulers and statesmen
Demand my loyalty
But the esteem they hold has not been earned
To justify their power or our suffering

The kings rulers and statesmen
Demand my loyalty
For economic gain, power, and prestige
They destroy the life of the common man

The kings tricked men into becoming mercenaries
A false sense of patriotism the spearhead for their greed

Their wars, we fight their wars
Like my father and grandfather, we do the dying
They never volunteer themselves for their wars
We fight their wars
Like my father and grandfather, we do the dying
They never volunteer their sons

Cannot trust the man that lives to govern other men
There has never been a good war, or a bad peace

The blood is ankle deep
Nothing but blood and teeth

Name me a king that ever left his life on the battlefield
Name me a war ever having been started by the people
Track Name: Mistakes Were Made
Still fighting
Still kicking
Still breathing
Still knowing
Still loving
Still roaring
Still hoping
Still caring
Still dreaming
Still fighting
Still kicking
Still breathing

We’re still fighting down in these trenches
Where no one hears our plea

I’m sorry for screaming
I just want you to hear the truth
And I’m sorry for screaming
I only want you to hear something right
I only want to wake you
From the nightmare of apathetic sleep
So you can realize
Hearts grow weary, minds die inside
And we are living our lives dissatisfied

But the message gets distorted by the anger in my voice
My heart keeps pounding, these thoughts keep burning
No one listens to the things that matter
Because everyone’s afraid of what they can’t bear to hear
My mind says scream ever louder
You don’t want to understand

I’m sorry for screaming
I just want us to make some peace
Your misinterpretation of my rage
You think I’m everything I hate

I’m sorry for screaming
How could I know you hurt so bad?
Mistakes were made

I’m sorry for screaming
But the world’s not changing
And things aren’t how they’re supposed to be
I’m sorry for screaming
But the world needs saving
And things aren’t how they’re supposed to be

I’m sorry, but I’ve got to keep on screaming
Because I’m not one for singing
And you don’t listen to anyone
When they’re speaking
This heart that’s been to war
Bitter and battle-scarred
Fighting this all alone
Seeking truth
And hope

And you think I’m everything I hate
