Track Name: Human Credential
This is the world, and its at war Tearing us apart
Without a seconds hesitation Without the thought of generations Yet to come

What have we done?

We’ve failed again to save ourselves From our own predation
Indifference, excess, envy, hate
The things that add on too much weight To our feeble minds

It’s made us blind
To the solutions
And free will to choose them
What if we decide we’ve had enough?
That we’re finished fighting with each other, Dividing ourselves up
By race, wealth, class, creed
Gender, borders, culture, countries
The things we cling to define our self identity

We’re all human, but claim we can’t relate We know reason, but keep it locked away Avoid our problems, but hope for better days A doomed species, unless this cycle breaks

If we show compassion
Use forward thinking in our ways To ease the burden
Of competition that has plagued Our world, but I know it can change
Track Name: Fearful Symmetry
We've all been pushed to the edge
there's no time left to hesitate
the fate of the world is resting in our hands with each new move another species ends

only to fill our senseless needs where money fuels power and greed

they don't tell you the impact of modern convenience

they just sell you till your body's depleted then they'll teach you their power pose Show you the power money holds

The river of fire keeps flowing
as we pretend the flames are harmless but slowly everything burns up
and we are left with nothing but ash

Don't live under a label
believe in what you contribute to others let your actions define you
don't let your true self be smothered

people change people I've seen it, I believe it
Track Name: OSU
There’s beauty in everything we see
dragged down by the agony of our defeats
bound to your bed by shackles created inside your head a chemical imbalance that no cure can silence

Trapped inside time, we wait for the storm to clear wasting away a life where you're given no second chance

But we push on to find a better day
moving along, don't waste time on feelings from yesterday

You're forcing yourself just to breath Existence is futile in times like these

but even the tallest tree knows its existence depends on the soil beneath its roots

I've watched you struggle
I've watched you fall
each time a new lesson
on the strength it takes to overcome it all

I offer no solution, I can not fix this
I merely want you to know that if you need me I am here
Track Name: The Syndicate
Question the rule, the only one who doesn't question is the fool
The men behind the curtain will keep you just smart enough to use you, but just dumb enough to fool you

Altered perception that the lives they've shattered aren't lives that matter, your life to them is just a game it doesn't matter, their wallets get fatter

Used as a pawn in foreign trade, protect the king but don't get paid, they'll use your body as a shield, until someone levels the playing field

Your life constantly at risk, they have only one wish, it's to preserve their wealth at risk of human health

So continue to follow blindly but don't be thrown when they speak unkindly of the America we came to be open your eyes then maybe you'll see a place where war is used as a tool
Track Name: Adopt Don't Shop
Creating birth defects in creatures for human pleasure the effects on a life of which you can't measure

Adopt don't shop
Millions of animals abandoned in shelters Adopt don't shop
killed cause you chose the boutique

profiting off the voiceless
we all know what the right choice is
Track Name: Unruhe
Who would I be?

Like a river changing direction, running uphill
if we admit that human life can be ruled by reason all possibility of life is destroyed

I never knew just how strong you had to be for me
just how long you held on for me
I'd watch you walk away and never understood the strength it would take I watched you pass away, decaying in the light of day

cancer took hold and as I grew older
I knew that wouldn't be the life for me
I admire how you lived so freely
but those decisions are what took you from me

we learn from loss, absence makes the heart grow fonder the stories I'm told will always make me wonder
if you were still here would I still be me?
if you were still here would I still be me?
Track Name: Eyes of Love
Not what you think but what you change break the cycle rearrange the only thing left to say is how you choose to push ahead the future pressure building up while we're all begging for change

I wait for a world where clarity is given at any age, you're not forced to choose so young what the rest of your life will take, with room to grow and room to change where each new step isn't met with adversity

eyes of love, eyes of love, view the world through the eyes of love
eyes of fear, eyes of fear, they want you to see through the eyes of fear
Not what you think but what you change break the cycle rearrange the only

thing left to say is how you choose to push ahead the future pressure building up inside your head while we're all still begging for change they don't want you to view the world through the eyes of love
Track Name: Cerulean Blue
They gave you the dream and then they sell you the pillow want you to believe, anything is possible
But it's not, when they control your thoughts

When you are asleep, your mind so malleable their iron grip takes hold
And they won't let go, until they own your soul

When you are awake, your thoughts invaluable
like a tome, from which knowledge will always flow

Never give up consciousness
never break to fit their mold, never break to fit there mold

It's about people being able to live not just exist
Track Name: Learn the Hard Way
Choose your impact
born to land hard but you can choose to lose that control your options, remember where you came from but choose to give back

Learn the hard way

Don't let the fat bald men control where your money's spent the terrible ones who try to control you
They weren't there when it began
and won't be when it ends

support those who support you

The road may seem rough but the best lessons are always learned the hard way
Track Name: Anesthetized
When we stop growing will we lose focus? When we stop expanding will we be hopeless? When we stop growing will we lose focus? When we stop expanding will we be hopeless?

With the changing days if you'd change your ways
you'd shoot off a spark of difference
we pray for rain but then exclaim when we're are drenched with indifference

We put too much stock in the idea the earth has more to take
we need to choose wisely expansion has the power to break

With each new forest plowed we lose quality of air and electric buzzing lines are all you hear
when one minute isn't filled with mindless drivel the masses will be forced to return to the earth

We waste our time
on commodity
never second guessing the footprints we leave

We need to wake up
one day when you're struggling to breath
you'll look at that strip mall and maybe you'll see what I see
Track Name: El Mundo Gira
With the on-coming storm and with the winds of change each day the earth is dying but no one is to blame

all Kings of convenience with no conscience or shame

the world will reset itself
and everything will be set straight

when your mother is screaming but you turn a blind eye
when you finally burn alive
one single tear you'll cry

the earth is dying
but no one is to blame
all Kings of convenience
with no conscience or shame the earth will reset itself everything will be set straight,

no unit of measurement
can erase the all of this time
the climate of fear is changing
but it's not the only thing on the rise

On the rise, on the rise Open your eyes
The climate is changing Open your eyes

But it's not the only thing On the rise
Track Name: OR7
I am the hunted, we are the few
Cast out alone, our stories misconstrued A thousand miles adrift on hostile land I've long forgotten how this all began

Neglected and hated
hung like trophies in the halls of man Where they choose, how we lose
Our lives, a game we'll never win

We all wander through this life in search of something more
We're all struggling to survive in a world that says we don't belong

They've tried and failed
To snare us into a set of chains
We may be cornered, we may be battered but our minds they will never break

While they project intolerance blinded by the fear of change we carry on, horizon bound determined that we will remain

We all wander through this life in search of something more
We're all struggling to survive in a world that says we don't belong

You can't erase me, you can't persuade me Into living my life in fear

You can't dissuade me
my conscience is free, I hear

the winds of change,
singing a song echoing my life

The tides have changed
my existence is stone, its yours that's about to fail

I will not turn around or go back from where I came
Ill continue on this path despite what any others say
What defines a life well spent? How about not being afraid
of testing limits, pushing boundaries, and refusing to die inside a cage

I will not turn away
At any point, despite what lies ahead
I will not turn away
For a life in chains is a sentence worse than death
