Track Name: Built from the Ground
Outside the violence starts to fade
Shadows bright as day
What can we see?
The story of a promised land
We built it with our hands
The lies we speak

We found a way back to the past
I swear that I’ve seen this before
The trail went cold

Across the land you hear the call
A symphony of all who would be free
And after all the time we spent
It’s planted and you can’t dig up the seed

We’ve found a way back to the past
I swear that I’ve seen this before
The trail went cold
And a flag still hangs from the sky
A thoughtful disguise
How would we know?
Track Name: Hypnotized
We’re hypnotized
Dressed in disguise
Still some see through lies on the news
But there’s no answer for you now
Congratulations on your sanity
Oh please tell me again
How to justify the end

I’ve been fooled by my own disguise
No more reason why we should deny ourselves
We go out searching almost every night
To find the love we can’t live without

Is this real?
Vultures take their fill
A broken contract
But relax the king knows what he’s doing
I think I’ve heard enough
And I turned the other way when you called my name
And now there’s no one left to tell oh well

Oh here we go again
A life that’s left to chance
We’re letting go of what we could be

I’ve been fooled by my own disguise
No more reason why we should deny ourselves
We go out searching almost every night
To find that love we can’t live without
Track Name: Pack Hunter
It’s coming up, yeah
What’s been hidden is moving the debris
The age of progress, capsized with the rising sea
This beast is ready to emerge. Suppressed, for the past half-century

We’re building up a culture of fear a way of life they hold so dear
We’re building a culture of fear a way of life they hold so dear

This beast, is ready to emerge
It’s ready to…

Pressed paused, rewound the scene
Humanity's surpassed their genes
One day they woke up to an ocean in a cup
A long winded race in a land of mines
Suffer from the limits of the mind
Repressed, Mislead, never felt the pain
Callin' up all their friends saying, “come validate me again.”

We’re building up a culture of fear a way of life they hold so dear
We’re building a culture of fear a way of life they hold so dear

This beast is ready to emerge
It’s ready to...

Weaving tales, stitch in deceit
Say follow me, cloak and masquerade

The coin you've earned, worth less each time
Repeat that lie, sold as truth to you

Proudly we hail, can't see deceit
Say follow me, cloak and masquerade

The coin you've earned, worth less each time
Repeat that lie, sold as truth to you
Track Name: Light Me Up
Light me up and I won’t let you down
The unspoken sentiment
Live true live immortal
Don’t go hiding down a bottle
It used to be so hard for me to take your advice
Had to learn the lessons on my own
Unbreakable friendship
How fast time moves when you’re gone
This world was not made for the mind that’s
Trapped in a prison of pride
When you realize
You can’t go back for a second try
So for the memories
The friends who never let you down
The dawn of a new era
Could still never break that bond

And I can’t just let you go

Used to be a flame with so much fuel
No fear of ever burning out
But some people don't want to see you burn too brightly now
Well I’ve learned that you can’t change someone to fit your mold
Surrounded by the ones that lift you up is the goal
So light me up
And we’ll break it down right here for you
Life is not a race
And nothing can compare to the freedom that we’ve tasted
We can face it
Awaken and make a plan for a better day
Evolution of the mind
Ignorance is blind
You see that we can break the construct of time

And I can't just let you go let you go
Track Name: Straight Jacket
You look insane
In your straight jacket
No surprise
You picked a fight that you couldn’t win
Go ahead knock yourself out
Look for the key
But it’s the door that’s broken
A mystery that we can’t let go

The search for new heights
For the unknown
It’s not set in stone

A bird that’s born in a cage
Thinks it’s a sickness to want to fly
But it’s a line
And once we cross there’s no return
And it could be the only way to save yourself
The only way to save yourself

And I won’t sell you anything that you don’t need
That’s a lie just look inside yourself
And I can’t tell you everything you want to hear
Now I’m dying
Already turning into dust
Track Name: We Are You
I want you to see this place
So you can’t say
That there is no reason
Your consciousness won’t slip into
Oblivion
Can seem
Like the perfect place to stop and rest for a while
But when you want to return
You’ll see how much already passed you by

And I’m thinking to myself
We’re going too fast
This can’t last
But I know there’s an answer
If we listen, and face the problem
With the plan
We know everything we'll do
Once we reach the promised land
But no way to find it
And even if you could
It’s never enough

(You) Think you’re par for course, but actually
It’s simpler than you make believe
If that comet’s comin’ down, makes no difference if you run around
Go on miss the point, and drive it home

And I’m thinking to myself
Were moving too fast
This can’t last
I know there’s an answer
Face the rising tide
We're melting into the sea
Track Name: Can't Sit Still
Move a little closer my darling
The song in your eyes whispers
‘Time hasn’t swallowed us yet’
And I intend
To find you and I won’t lose you again

Maybe it’s just what we asked for
They say that a love so strong can fill the sea
But it ain’t easy

And I can’t sit still when she’s right in front of me
Got me jumping out of my seat
She returns like the sun burns this frozen place to the ground
Burn it to the ground
Just say you won’t leave tonight
Stay and fight the cold
Stay and fight the cold cold night

It’s been awhile since I’ve seen you around here
Feels like I’ve lost
Lost my mind
Will you be there when I awake this time

I’ve got no leverage on you
You’ve you got no leverage on me
We will defy
Gravity

And I can’t sit still
When she’s there right in front of me
Got me jumping out of my seat I said hey
I’ll see you when the sun burns this frozen place to the ground
Just burn it to the ground
And don't leave tonight
Stay and fight the cold
Stay and fight the cold cold night
Track Name: Another Gross Exaggeration
There’s a shift
In the tide pool social club
The urchins are stationed
And act like birds of paradise

Affection comes in many forms
Getting close with the touch of a button
Feel the love from miles away
And measure imperfections
Like counting crows on a wire

Pretend we don’t care
Say we don’t like it
The fact of the matter is
We can’t help ourselves

It’s a gross
Exaggeration of the truth
Half the world none-the-wiser
A facade benefitting no one

We look good on paper
And it’s all the matters to anyone anymore

We’ll do anything for your attention
We’ll do anything for your attention
Suspicious if there’s nothing that you want in return
Now grab what you can
Every fool for himself
Every fool for himself
Track Name: Not My Enemy
There is no way that I could explain
It’s in my blood
A sword sharpened by the sands of time
Was it you or me?
It seems we’ve stopped keeping score
Just stay to watch another empire burn

When it’s all said and done
You’re fighting someone that you didn’t know
Rewriting history so you can’t see
Indoctrinated and branded the world’s gone mad

Hey when did it get so late?
These walls are changing shape
Turning into a maze
I’ve wasted my whole life
Now I want it back
Now I want it back

This is not a war we’re fighting here
It’s only in our minds
That we conquer fear

It makes so much sense
It’s what we’ve been told before we were old enough to know
But we don’t have to see what others loose for our gain
It’s become so easy
To say that you’re my enemy

And when It’s all said and done
We’re fighting someone that we didn’t know
Rewriting history so you can’t see
Indoctrinated and branded it’s all been planned for us

This is not a war we’re fighting here
It’s only in our minds
That we conquer fear
