Verse 1:Fight! for your right
While you've still got room to swing
Won't someone shed some light
On what our future brings
 
Pre Chorus:We're drifting toward a neagtive Utopia
By doing nothing we hurt ourselves more
Apathy only helps the ones we're up against
What are silent, lazy, at home protests good for?
 
Verse 2:If there's never a proactive stance
For making life better, for us all
If there's never a display of VISTALANCE
We'll all have our faces against the wall
 
Repeat Pre Chorus
 
Chorus:There's no excuse for the things you don't do-We can't accomplish anything if we don't follow through
There's no excuse that it's too much work for you-we share a responsibility, it's your world too.
 
Interlude:Wouldn't you rather die on your feet than live on your knees?
We're headed down the path to oblivion
If we don't make a change we're bound for destruction
Where corporations own everything including you
And government will have turned its back on us too
They'll hold against us the things we never learned
And in our ignorance We!-Will!-Burn!!
 
Repeat Chorus
 
 
 
 
Verse 1:Crisp, so crystal clear,
I focus as I bring the world into my hemisphere
I see with clarity through the vanity, the way life bleeds
The way things are and the way they shouldn't be
 
Pre Chorus:And when I close my eyes...
I don't see...
Things the way...
They ought-to-be!
 
Chorus 1:Everyone is blind! and self-absorbed!
It gets much worse.......
 
Verse 2:Sober eyes can easily reflect
The light that ones own mind can perplex
Radiation of my heart unto my surroundings
I try daily to decipher my confoundings
 
Repeat Pre Chorus
 
Chorus 2:Everyone is blind! And self-absorbed!
And it gets so much worse
And its difficult to explain and comprehend
When no one wants to change thier world
 
Outro:Cabalistic!! Cabalistic!!
You don't see!
You can't find!
You don't know!
These thoughts of mine!
You don't think!
You don't try!
You don't ask!
Ever why!!

Can't Hold On
Verse 1:I've been gone for so long
I've been here just not all there
Living in, an endless haze
Oblivious to your reality
 
Pre Chorus:And I don't want to be part of this anymore
Its not the same life I used to adore
And I don't want to have anything to do with you
You're not the person I once knew
 
Chorus:You're not my last hope of life slipping through the door
You're not a fallen angel coming here to save me
And I'm not holding onto life anymore
Cause you've ripped me...away!
 
Verse 2:I can't feel, can't sleep
Can't talk, can't breathe
With suffocation, you fill my lungs up
And you hold me beneath!
 
Repeat Pre Chorus
Repeat Chorus
 
Bridge:Can't!..Hold!...ON!!
Can't hold on when you don't reach for me
I can't hold you when you're not there
So hold me closer while you steal my breath
Hold on while I drift away!!!
 
Outro:Can't hold on!

Disassembled
Verse 1: There's nothing here holding me together Life's gone and left me disassembled Picked apart to where I'm about to crack No one can bring me back
 
Pre Chorus: I'm construed, misused, Distraught, confused, Misled, abused, Disassembled!
 
Chorus: Asemble me! Mend me where I'm severed
Asemble me! Put it all back together!
 
Verse 2: So far gone life's no longer in my control Feel like I'm no longer whole Don't want it, need to leave all of this Need to get away can't deal with it
 
Repeat Pre Chorus
 
Repeat Chorus
 
Interlude: Some assembly may be required x4
Some assembly may be required I'm disassembled put me back together
I'm DISASSEMBLED!!!
 
Repeat Chorus

Verse:Something has to change!
This World wants it to
Something has to give
I'm sure you've felt it too
The skies are black!
hatered stains the ground
The fires rage!
and still no savior is found
Pre Chorus: Bending and twisting the tension coils and builds, as the pressure rises soon it will BREAK!
Chorus: The time is now to trust within yourself to rise above and bring...................DOWN! You can't know yourself until you find yourself you are The One
Verse 2: And you (you) you are The One,
you can change it all
The power of a god alone in your hands
you can contribute to our fall
The skies are black!
the hatered stains the ground
The fires rage!
and still no savior is found
Repeat Pre Chorus
Repeat Chorus
Bridge: We stand on the edge of a precipice,
We near the brink of disaster,
We stand on the edge of a precipice...
Take my hand...
Trust in me...
Close your eyes...and...
Jump! Jump! Jump!
Take my hand and
Jump! Jump! Jump!
Trust in me and
Jump! Jump! Jump!
Take my hand, Close your eyes, Take my hand, Close your eyes, Trust in me, trust in me, trust in me and...
 

Propaganda (no news is good news)
Verse 1:Turn off the TV!
There's a ratings war in the evening!
Eye-catching nothingness to steal us away From the reality of life, everyday
 
Chorus:(It's)Propaganda! Processed into the media!
Sensationalism! From 5 to 9!
Filtered! Television!
Censored! Information!
 
Verse 2:Glittered-up news, looking for revel
Dumbbed down to the 5th grade level!
Exaggerated catastrophes!
Equal a world without feelings!
 
Chorus:Propaganda! Processed into the media!
Sensationalism! From 5 to 9!
Filtered! Television!
Censored! Information!
 
Outro:The more they control our information
The more they control our lives!!
 
Robert Paulson
Verse 1: We'll never see through devil's eyes/we'll never hear the angel's cries/with people here to subsidize/all we'll have is the lies/ All the world infinitesmal/drag it over like a decimal/such a problem solve it out/not enough time to figure out/what's the deal with the wolrd's factions/hypnotized by distactions/we'll never see life in perspective/with priorities defective!
 
Pre Chorus: And this is our downfall...this is our downfall...this is the way... this is the...way
 
Verse 2: We'll never see the fifth dimension/reality will never be perception/we can try to trace the thought connection/but we'll never own our own attention/With televison our opinion dies/we believe whatever they decide/we can never truly trust broadcasted information/mass media controlled by corporations/and crime spreads infesting the globe/unstoppable for the blue and red strobe/torrential poison subdues our capabilities/beneath the fascade of stained glass and cable TVs!
 
Pre Chorus: And this is our downfall...this is our downfall...this is the way... this is...
 
Chorus: The way they want it/the way they need it/the way they set it up (to keep us underground)/The way they want it/the way they need it/the way they set it up/(to keep our wrists and ankles bound)!
 
Interlude: We're in control of our own lives, television only burries your mind to where our potential lies, try and stream against the hardline! We're in control of our own lives, organized religion only burries your mind to where our potential lies try and stream against...
 
Chorus: The way they want it/the way they need it/the way they set it up (to keep us underground)/The way they want it/the way they need it/the way they set it up/(to keep our wrists and ankles bound)!
 

We don't want to tell you what these songs mean, true art in our eyes should have the ability to be interpreted and related to one's life in one way or another, if you've never done that with a form of art you are completely missing out on the power incased therein.
