Track Name: Firewater (ft. Anthony DeMario)
Say you've got problems
Don't complain just solve them
(Deal with it)
Nothing in this life is given for free
So you plead for the things you don't need
Let it be known
That every person that's fallen's not broken
Every soft word not said isn't spoken
If you live by these words
You die by these words
So just make up your mind
I can't take it
I won't make it
I am sinking too fast
(Because I'm sinking down)
It's better to put water to a fire
And let it slowly burn away
I'm drowning in this awkward tension
No one knows but me
Say you've got problems
Don't complain just solve them
(Deal with it)
Let it be known
I'm screaming out and you don't seem to hear me
I'm breaking down and you don't wanna see me
I can't get over the way
I'm trying to say
Don't give up that easy
(Because I'm sinking)
I can't take it
I won't make it
I am sinking too fast
It's better to put water to a fire
Then let it slowly burn away
I'm drowning in this awkward tension
No one knows but me
A wasted night
A wasted year
A wasted life
Is all I fear
Aim high
Lay low
This is moving too slow
(Live by these words, die by these words)
Make up your mind
It's better to put water to a fire
Then let it slowly burn away
I'm drowning in this awkward tension
No one knows but me
(I'm drowning)
Track Name: Never Back Down
Times are tough, broken down in despair
Fortunes fleeting, coldness filling in the air
I look up at the sick blue sky
This killer world reminds me why I-
Never back down; won't take no for an answer
Stand your ground because nothing ever lasts forever
Most of all...we will fight the good fight together, together yeah!
Look me in the eye, tell me
Do you like what you see?
Am I all that you see?
A copper heart full of electricity,
A soul engulfed in flames
Inspired to control his own destiny:
To seek out his own twisted fate!
Never back down; won't take no for an answer
Stand your ground because nothing ever lasts forever
Most of all...we will fight the good fight together, together yeah!
NEVER BACK DOWN!
NEVER, NEVER BACK DOWN!
Track Name: Survival Tactics
Spread out throughout the land
Across the jungle and desert sand
We heed the call to arms again
Despite the fact we're separated
Lightning cracks the darkened sky
Without fear we seek to crush your lies
Through the fire and the smoke
There is no time to let you go
We're trekking through the dark
We've lost all track of time
We're guided by the stars
In our broken state of mind
We're armed tooth and nail
And we will prevail
We're on a mission: never fail
The earth is breaking
The ground is quaking
I reach out my hand (I reach out my hand)
No man left behind is what my instinct always said
Survival tactics
Waiting for the armageddon (again, again, again)
Lock and load
Full speed ahead
The bomb is armed
There is no time left
Straight to hell is with the path you lain
Justify your tyrannical reign
Breakneck our pace
Leave without a trace
I refuse to watch it burn
Watch it burn
The earth is breaking
The ground is quaking
I reach out my hand
No man left behind is what my instinct always said
Survival tactics
The earth is breaking
The ground is shaking
We reach out our hands
No man left behind is what our instinct always said
Track Name: Leeches
What have I become
Another leech in the stagnant abyss lost in time?
What have I become?
Can someone get me out of this 9 to 5
Trying to stay alive
This bond is taxing me
I'm fighting to break these chains
This hell is all I see
My mind is melting from this wasted life
Trying to stay alive
My soul is losing energy
Our resolve is all we need
Take life by the reins
Don't give up yesterday
Life is fast so don't forget to breathe
(Forget to breathe)
Can someone let me know that time is on our side?
It's time to live or die
Can someone let me know that time is on our side?
It's time to live
Always go for the throat
There is not time to choke
There's no time to choke
Always go for throat
Someone breathe some life into me
It seems we exist to brood this impending doom
Never to unlatch from thee
I'm striving not to live this way
Every single day
Take life by the reins
Don't give up yesterday
Life is fast so don't forget to breathe
(Forget to breathe)
(Trying to stay alive
It's time to live or die)
What have I become?
Track Name: Tubes
Low profile keeps you in delusion
Singing this song is a set restitution
This avalanche of feelings is taking me over
You can't stop us now
(You can't stop us now)
You can't do anything to get my feet off of the ground
Helpless, yes I'm helpless
Gripping on to what's intangible
Hopeless, I'm so hopeless
Slowly find my way back to you
I'll bite the bullet before I learn my lesson
Don't second guess all the second chances
You need to feel pain before you can feel pleasure
Times always get worse before they get better
Eyes are open
My heart is racing
My palms are sweaty
Write these lyrics down on this paper
You would too
Even a broken clock gets to be right twice a day
Breathe in your nose and out your mouth
The more relaxed you are the less you scream and shout
You can't stop us now
(You can't stop us now)
You can't do anything to get my feet off of the ground
Helpless, yes I'm helpless
Gripping on to what's intangible
Hopeless, I'm so hopeless
Slowly find my way back to you
(You need to feel pain)
You need to feel pain before you can feel pleasure
Times always get worse before they get better
Eyes are open
My heart is racing
My palms are sweaty
Write these lyrics down on this paper
You would too
