Track Name: True & Through
You can't just close your mind
Oblivious to the horrors of everyday life
Overlords, overseers bow men to the earth
And you cannot just sleep
Sleep is troubled, devoid of dreams
You're not allowed to die
Just because you cannot breathe

Searching for character
Within the hearts of men there lies
The desolation of an apocalyptic wasteland
Most are not strong
Just look to the eyes of the week to know
It's easier to live without conviction or principles
You can't comprehend you're oppressed
You've never cared for anything

You cannot hate
Like I hate
You've never loved
Like I've Loved
You can't understand that this hate it burns
TRUE AND THROUGH

We're beaten down by this world

Ostracized wayward son
Bewildered by this complacency
The master provided distractions
You barely own anything
You're just given enough
So you just keep your mouth shut

You cannot hate
Like I hate
You've never loved
Like I've Loved
You can't understand that this hate it burns
TRUE AND THROUGH

Loving hero
Turned anti-hero
One step from raving madman
Hates the violators as he does the fools
He desparately tries to save

Just a man
This burnt out shell of a man
Exists amongst the damage done
For their lust
Resources selfishly squandered
So a few can indulge in pleasure
And acquire all worldy possessions
The world is not enough to slake their blood thirst
For power
In love with hating everything
The masses insist is the answer
This bastard sword cuts deep
Aflame with hatred burning
TRUE AND THROUGH
Track Name: There Is No Reprieve
This is not who we we're meant to be
For me there is no reprieve
That is not who I aspire to be
For me there is no reprieve

Clashing and clawing
Senselessly violent
You can't catch your breath
Between the beatings and death

Gnashing and gnawing
Tearing of flesh
We can't let these bastards
Inherit the Earth

We've had enough of the corrupt, the degenerates and the fools
We need to hear from the philosophers, the teachers and the healers

Listen - Someone has to say something
Listen - Someone has to have some reason

Someone has to have some passion
Some heart and volition

There is no one to elect, so elect yourself
Someone has to guide the lost

THERE IS NO REPRIEVE
Can you JUST WAIT a second for me
I just need a moment to breathe
The world keeps crushing
The people keep fighting
For me there is no reprieve

JUST WAIT a moment for me
I just need a moment to breathe
We all need a moment to breathe
And a moment to think

The world keeps crushing
The people keep fighting
The blind spew back the acid
We keep spitting in their mouths

We've had enough of the corrupt, the degenerates and the fools
We need to hear from the philosophers, the teachers and the healers
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
