Track Name: Esperanto
A lost art, a past thought. Grace has been overseen.
There is no love in man that I am yet to see,
I’m blind, I’m deaf to my surroundings but I’m conditioned
Believing that I am aware of myself.

It’s the man made machine, we gave it life, we gave it thought
it’s a disturbing site to see. It’s at peace with waging war.
It’s the man made machine.

Call me a liar, call me a thief, tell me I’m just a part of the
Machine, but I know where I stand, fixed into place with my
Brothers aside me. You won’t knock me down, nor will you wear this crown.
Better luck next time, take a good look at yourself.

We can’t outrun, what has been done to our predecessors
They’ve already left us.
This is our chance, our chance to stand up and fight
The machine, the machine made by us!

We’re the creator so blessed by our wealth, we build
And progress yet we’re still screaming for help!

We build until there’s nothing left.

We’re the creator so blessed by our wealth, we build
And progress yet still screaming for help from a god
That we built in our heads, we can’t see him but
We feed him the DEAD!
Track Name: I Built This Empire With...
Time is a measure at which we value our lives this
Isn’t living, we’re just wasting time. Sitting so idle
As life passes by say that you want this don’t be so shy.
I am the wolf buried deep in your stomach you’ve
Had to contain me but I’m surfacing and you love
This time on our hands is ever so fleeting now let me
Out it’s time for the feasting.

The best part of all of this is you have no idea, you’re so
Blinded it all, you’re so confident, you’re so unaware. I feel for you.

This is not the end, it’s merely the start of all of this
You can be willing to fight but it’s best, it’s best to submit.

I’ve been wandering around for years and now I’ve found you here
So unprepared for everything my dear, do you know how we got to this?
Was there something i missed?

You’re so unaware of all the adoring stares, you act like nobody cares for you.
Nobody cares, I’m telling you now, nobody cares, who’s begging now?

I have no sympathy for you.
I won’t carry you anymore.
Why are you so god damn ignorant to everything?
Track Name: I Promise I Will Never Die
We are the young the brave and the bold.
We’re the things yet to happens, we’re the stories to be told
We’re the ones they’ve been looking for, we’re the kids hearts so pure
We’re the ones they’ve been looking for, we’re the kids hearts of gold

Don’t raise your voice inside, don’t run or feel alive.
Sit there patiently, wait your turn to speak.
That’s how they want you, that’s how they’ll keep you.
Sit there quiet, don’t say a thing.

Keep your mouth shut!

These games we play go back and forth.
We have nothing to hide and nothing to live for.
I’m growing tired, growing weary seeing note after note
Signed yours sincerely, I’m not a fool, I’ll play no games
I see the cracks appearing, it’s all the same.

Do you feel surrounded when the whole world is watching you.
You are so apprehensive; you’ve thrown up the walls,
Walls are breaking down. He shot me down and the
Wounds aren’t healing. My soul has wandered aimlessly.

My visions been blurred, my speech is not mine.
I’m somebody else. But how can this be when I’ve not
Slept for days just to keep them all out?
It’s hard to escape when I fumble and fall on myself every time.
I am crying out for help!

We’re the ones they’ve been looking for, we’re the kids hearts so pure
We’re the ones they’ve been looking for, we’re the kids hearts of gold

Don’t raise your voice inside, don’t run or feel alive.
Sit there patiently, wait your turn to speak.
That’s how they want you, that’s how they’ll keep you.
Sit there quiet, don’t speak a word.

You will not escape me.
Track Name: Leopold
OH I’m glad he’s dead, he’ll never hit you again.
For if he was and he did, I’d make sure I was his end!
He is no man; he will lay with dirt across his chest!
I will be the end, I will be his death.

These secrets are heavy; they leave a weight upon my soul.
These treasures inside me will never be yours to hold.
My words I my words and I won’t let you down.

Fill me with falsities and give me the floor.
Feed the monopoly known as the poor
For what it’s worth I meant every word
Lies will line these halls but won’t be heard.

We have simple minds that feed on simple things but
Nothing in life I’ve learnt is free. Now we’re told to build
To recreate and learn again, but what do we do?
When does it end!? Tell me, does it end?
Track Name: Ambush!
I’ve been running so god damn long that I don’t know
What I’m running from but if I stop now it’ll all catch
Up and they’ll be at my heels trying to feed like sharks!
Pushing and pulling me to and fro, what they want
From me I do not know!

They’ll take and take what they do not need, it makes
Me cynical and it fills me with greed.
This hate that is burning is filling me slowly and by the
End you won’t even know me.

I need to get back to the start where I lost myself
Where I lost all heart. They keep pushing and pulling
Me to and fro but what they want from me, I do not
Know. They fill my head with all these thoughts, they’re
Making sure that things are running smoothly and on course!

Is everything running according to plan?

I’ve heard this many times before that our brains are fixed
And we have a one way course. My mind is running on
Overdrive, I’ll burn out soon, I’m slowly running out of time.
I am my own king, I wear my own crown. I keep my head
Up but you want it kept down, who is to say that you’re the
Rule makers?

Let’s align like soldiers, let’s congregate so they can’t hold us.
