Track Name: ATSOB
This world wont hold it's breath for you
your lung are yours to close
I wont live in your perfect replica of reality.

I have come to open your fucking eyes
To the scum of this earth
If you're looking for my positive outlook
You can find it in the deepest darkest corner of my heart

Everyone is so damn two faced
You never know which one to hate.
And all of us are sick and tired of,
Of being played

It's time to wake the fuck up
It's time to make a change
Are lives are worth so much more
Than all this struggle and pain

And there's no way that this situation
will defuse itself, so stop running away from these bombs we plant ourselves
I'd like to think that my dreams will come true, but
I don't sleep at night so I have nothing to prove

The buildings crumble as the forest are laid to ash
The air is caustic
The oceans black as the sky turns green
Our world is ruined

This cannot be our future
This is not our destiny
Buying and selling our souls to chaos
In this catastrophe

We will! (x4)

Break through these walls
Break through these walls!
Track Name: Wounded
I'm so sick of this shit
It's like a game I can't win
I ask myself 'when will it end?'
My head's forever scarred

You played with my emotions
With no end in sight, so
I'll try..
I'll try to hold my tongue
No....

Let's go!

So tell me how you think you can get away with me
And a handful of truth that is aimed against you?
I'd watch my step..

If time heals all wounds
We've got nothing to lose
The clocks are off the walls now
And so (and so) I'l take (I'll take)
These words down to my grave
Your heart stops beating when the clock stops ticking now

I'll just move on!

I'll just move on
As much as it kills me
I'll just move on
As much as it hurts

This time I won't let you in my head
This time I won't let you take control

If time heals all wounds
We've got nothing to lose
The clocks are off the walls now
And so (and so) I'll take (I'll take)
These words down to my grave
Your heart stops beating when the clock stops ticking now

I won't let you
I won't let you do this again
And it's time for you to open up your eyes
And take it back...
Track Name: The Arborist
It's sad to say
But this is everything I feared it would be

I the reaper and destroyer of this land
Give me your consciousness
Your heart turns to sand

I the creator begs that mankind will
Cease the way they continue to exist
Nothing is left of a perfect entity
I've sought better than this
I've hoped for more than this
Arborist...

They've built up walls around a biased system
Taken control over a shattered industry
Arborist we've done away with a perfect system

I will wake them up
I will make them shake
Fuck

Our eyes are open (x2)
The Arborist was right
We will not fold up(x2)
We won't go down without a fight

The thought of the end seems so fictive
This new perspective could shed some light
The walls to prove a chance have been
Washed away

Our eyes are open(x2)
The Arborist was right
We will not fold up(x2)
We won't go down with out a fight
Track Name: Rise To No End (ft. Steve Perkins of Argus)
Where did the time go?
Everything that I've worked for
Can't be for nothing

If I had a second chance, and I'd wipe away all of my past
If I had a second chance, I'd prove to you I'd make this last

Now I am nothing more than a whisper in the wind
Ambition has become my only motivation now

All I've had
All I've worked for
Waste of energy in breath
Despite my
Withered effort
I promise you I'll rise
I'll rise to fall again

(Steve Perkins)
Day and night I think about what I've done
How this is my life
But in your eyes its never enough
I will pick and follow the path that I choose
I refuse, I refuse to walk in your shoes!

This is my revenge (x2)
