Track Name: A Thousand Ways
Fucked hope, what can I do? I'm trying so hard to get to you.
But you refuse to hear a single word of truth.
But every lie they swore as true falls like music to your ears.

How can we live our lives so unaware?
How can we love if we are so fucking scared?
And my only regret is I once played the same dreadful tune.

You sing the same songs your parents sang about their unflinching devotion
To everything. Everything sick and wrong with yesterday and today.
They broke you down and stole everything, and you openly embraced that this
Life was not your very own.

False hope is all they'll give to you.
Best years is what they'll take from you.
You were robbed, how long will it be before you see?

All the skinned knees you should have felt,
A thousand ways to break free, but you won't.
So keep carrying your father's cross and living your mother's dreams,
Never getting to express a voice you can make.
You were never there, never there for yourself.
Never there for yourself.
And now I don't know who's to blame.
Track Name: At Your Mercy
How long will it be before we're ready to set fire to this bridge?
A guest now in the home where I once lived, I'm on the outside looking in.

Ask me to leave and I'll fucking go. Just say the word.
Like the tide dragged by the moon, I'm at your mercy.

How much longer can I bite my tongue before I sever it?
Held out your hand when I needed it most, and I haven't stopped paying for
It.

Ask me to leave and I'll fucking go. Just say the word.
Like the tide dragged by the moon, I'm at your mercy.

Ask me to leave and I'll go.
The hefty price of your hospitality, I can no longer afford.

I don't want to argue any more.
I'm tired of the words you wield like knives,
Hoping to stab somewhere close to my heart.

At your mercy. Don't wanna be anymore.

Ask me to leave. I'll fucking go. Just say the word.
Track Name: Counter
From day one Schools, peers, media
Push us in certain ways
Intimidated, shamed, pressured Into an untrue identity
The bastard mob whose aim it is
To keep me in check
Can't hold me down, with their mockeries
Or put that noose around my neck

Those brainless clones repulse me
So I'll walk alone
And all I need is one friend called truth
And my heart is its home
This world won't defeat me
This world won't defeat me
This world won't defeat me

I won't be a victim
To the venomous ways around me
This hellish environment is not my master
Day upon day I've listened to your threats
Year upon year I've watched you deteriorate
I have my own mind
Now I make my own choices
And am my own lord in these days
From now on
This world won't defeat me

I have my own mind
Now I make my own choices
And am my own lord in these days
From now on
This world won't defeat me

Those brainless clones repulse me
So I'll walk alone
And all I need is one friend called truth
And my heart is its home
This world won't defeat me
This world won't defeat me
This world won't defeat me
