Track Name: Life's Trap
And I've been through this
A million times before
And I wonder what the future has in store
And I know, most definitely
This job I have, is killing me
But the money sucks me further in each day
Now there's got to be a better way
I look at this life I lead
I ask myself. Am I happy?
Things ain't turning out
The way I thought it would be
But life's trap has got me locked down
I can't find a way to turn it around
I can't find a way out now
and I wonder what the future has in store for me
Track Name: So Slowly Fade
Perfect imperfections printed, brought and sold
Cool refined portrayals edited, controlled
Society's obligation to the the perfect faultless you
I refuse to be defined by those
Who ignore what's wrong and refuse what's true
A blemish makes you who you are
But you set your sights not as far
An error holds you in your place
A scar dements your perfect face
In mediocrity you dwell
A broken soul's length far from hell
You wish so bad that you had that look
You'll take no matter what it took
But commerce feeds on lust and greed
Sells our dreams and makes us need
Invades young minds to set them free
I'm scared, but they won't have me
In debt for life now scars like dreams so slowly fade
Look beyond the glare of fame
Look inside, we're all the same
They dictate interpretation
Is your opinion really yours?
Ask yourself just why
They sell us gangs and worship whores
Scars like dreams so slowly fade
Your idols face the choices they made
Look beyond the glare of fame
Look inside, we're all the same
Track Name: Dawn of a New Millenium
Centuries gone by
Must read between the lines
Prophecies of pain
Our future has been betrayed
Secret orders who hold the power
To end existence
Silent weapons for quiet wars
Against our people
Our darkest day has yet to pass
Unless we try
To open up our eyes now
The future is a vacant lot
We're ripped and torn apart
We anticipate the day
When no one will be saved
And we want answers
What will become of us?
Will you live to see the day?
Have we sealed our fate?
The time to make a change?
Or is it just too late?
Track Name: Never Had...
Never had the chance to say goodbye
To the loved ones that we lost
It's a shame their time passed by
Never had the chance to say goodbye
So cherish family and your friends
Cause you never know who's next in line

Through hard times- We all suffered
We stood hard- It made us stronger
We never had the chance to say goodbye

I think about the times that we spent
You'll never know how much it meant to me
And now you're gone, and I can't tell you why
My broken heart is torn apart inside
Track Name: Commotion
Causing problems made you miserable
Blame it all on me and then I come to realize
That I don't want your company
Thought you were a friend
I showed you that I cared
And it blew back in my face
So now I just sit back and watch as you
get put in place don't blame me for your
commotion cause I'll get by with my devotion
A choice you made in your life
Fucked you up now you pay the price
Cause you don't seem to understand
I'm doing the best that I can
Didn't fit into your plan
And I see the situation through
The difference between me and you
Is what's tearing us in two
Causing problems made you miserable
Blame it all on me
And then I come to realize
That I don't want your misery
Thought you were a friend
I showed you that I cared
And it blew back in my face
so now I just sit back
And watch as you get put in place
Don't come to me for comfort then
Or just a means to an end
Put what we had back up on the shelf
Take a good look at yourself
Track Name: Burning Inside
Tough decisions you gotta make
Bad habits, hard to break
Who is wrong, who is right?
We can't make the same mistakes
Easier said than done
From the problems we face
I won't turn and run
Life's to short we can't allow ourselves
To become consumed by hate
It's easy to just walk away
Especially when there is nothing left to say
But I know that somehow together we can find
Find it in our hearts to make it right
I've been down this road before
And I hope I don't come back
Blinded by emotions
That threw me off the track
Through the darkest days and sleepless nights
Alone in misery
I think about what could have been
And what you mean to me
Don't know what to think am I afraid
To accept the fact that things will never be the same
Restless thoughts yearning inside
A struggle to uncover feelings that I've tried to hide
I can't deny
Passion for you still burns inside
Track Name: Blank Stare
From the start
You were there
To pick me up when I was down
Back in school when friends were few
Loyalty helped us stay true
And till this day it still remains
Cause in our hearts nothing has changed
So when your back's against the wall
I won't let you take the fall
And I know you would do the same
With us as one together we'll never fade away
Despite our differences
Our goals are all the same
They're all the same
As the time has passed us by
The memories, the laughs and cries
Never giving up
And as a friend I'll always be there
To pick you up when you're in need
When you are in need
When trouble comes I'll never turn away
We'll always stand
Stand for what we believe
And we have our reasons
With no need to live your way
Won't live your way
As the time has passed us by the memories, the laughs and cries
Will always hold true
When you're in need
I'll be there for you
Together strong
Always staying true
Track Name: Severed Ties
No more pain
what I have lost, can't be retrieved
Holding on to nothing, still can't believe
But what makes you
Attend to another
I wonder why did I bother?
Look in my eyes, and see the pain
What I once had led astray
Sometimes it's hard for me to let go
When feelings have grown beyond control
Sit in my room, stare at the walls
I see your face, everywhere I go
Those lonely days, and sleepless nights
Can never ever be made right
Hope you enjoy playing the role
In your self-made soap opera
Sometimes its hard for me to let go
When feelings have grown beyond control
So go ahead, turn your back now
But I was there to help
You keep taking these small steps backwards
Something you don't care about now
Don't ever say I didn't warn you
Don't say I didn't try
When I tried to prove my love
You turned your back and closed your eyes
Track Name: Time Is Now
Now's the time, so don't let it pass on you
Cause time moves fast
Sand running low on the hourglass
We're still young
But we're getting older
Gotta do it now, before its over
And make the best of life
The time is now so let's do it right
Now's the time to make a name
For ourselves soon we will reign
And focus on our main concern
Respect of the world we will earn
Now is the time
Because we're young we'll do it now
We'll live our lives we won't miss out
We'll have good times to represent
Time is now
Track Name: Far Behind
I made a choice to turn around
Won't let my feelings drag me back down
Clear my head out of all these thoughts
Erase the problems that I once fought
all this stuff to comprehend
Won't bring me to an early end
I won't let it take me, or ever break me
I will not ever lose sight
Too much is trapped inside my mind
Too far ahead to look behind
Can't change the past can't change what's left
A lesson learned heals my regrets

But you try to drain my life away
Condemn me for all the things I say
And I'm sorry if I offended you
It's just something I felt I had to do
Sometimes it's right, sometimes its wrong
But either way you'll take this song
The lies and fights that I have done
Turned out to hurt everyone
All this stuff to comprehend
Will never bring me to an early end
Emotional breakdown is making me frown
But I will not lose sight
Choices made to turn around
My feelings won't drag me down
Clear my head out of all these thoughts
Erase the problems that I fought
All this stuff to comprehend
Won't bring me to an early end
Emotional breakdown is making me frown
But I will not lose sight
Track Name: Turncoat
Why did you go away
I'll never want to know
But it's time for us to realize
that some friends come and go
And I must express these feelings
Can't keep them trapped no more
Cause we're sick and tired of turncoats
What must you do this for?
Save the stories, lies and trash
For all your new found friends
See what goes around will always
come back around and round again
Don't you bother looking back
when all the present trends have passed
cause we knew that you would never stay true
we knew you would never last
Pride is here, and will never go away
Turn your back on all your friends
Deep down inside you know you're wrong
Lying turncoat full of shit
Our dignity won't stand for it
Now we know your other side
It's your true colors you can't hide
props to all who helped us through
We'll stick together staying true
Forget about all that has happened
None of it will last
And I thought we all would stick it through
But you're the one to crack
Those disrespects and tough guy words
Can't mend your broken pride
Self destruction and loneliness
is what you have to hide
So face the truth for what its worth
and go and choose your side
We will never change our ways
For money, or industry
We stand, true to all our roots
With pride
Track Name: On the Rise
Can I explain to you
Everything that we go through
In a world that isn't right
We'll stick it out
We're on the rise
Problems we face each day
Won't get us down in any way
On the rise
Instead of falling we'll stay alive
And all the times that we get pissed
We'll hold our ground and clench our fists
On the rise
Instead of falling we're on the rise
Get up
Don't hide yourself
And take the blame for someone else
We'll stand above
Watch their demise
Fighting back
We're on the rise
When problems arise
I'll keep my head up high
In the face
Of things that I despise
