Track Name: The Decline
I was reliving all those times we shared
And it's hard, because there's nothing left of you
And I can see you're not the same
You used to be so strong, but time has changed you
You turned away

I keep on trying and trying to escape from the past
Because those days used to mean so much
We stood side by side and nothing else mattered
We were Straight Edge and at least I still am

Did you forget about what we said?
Or did it just not mean that much?
Sitting with my head in my hands
Wondering what happened to us

Now only a whisper remains of the person I once knew
We came, we conquered those days
But now, now you're gone

Don't tell me you're the same
Because you gave your heart away
And in return you got nothing
Track Name: Fourth of July
It's a new day.
I woke up feeling wiser than I did yesterday.
I've cleaned a slate I never thought I would.
Thinking about the good times between me and you.
And I've been thinking about those time.
And how I let hatred tear me down.
And I know it's gotten us nowhere.
So it's time I let go, break free, and live my life.
Now it's time to let it go.
Because tomorrow may not come.
And I need to let you know that there's something here that we can save.
Before it's too I don't want to say these words to your grave.
And I've been thinking about those times and how I let hatred tear me down.
And how it's gotten us nowhere.
So this time I want to know what you're thinking.
Can we learn? Can we try?
Can we learn to forgive and forget and leave the past behind.
And begin to live our lives without any regrets.
Yea I guess I have grown up but I am still learning.
Yea I guess I have grown up but I'm still learning everyday.
And today I'm learning to let go.
Track Name: Time Slips Away
Four years of my life that I'm never getting back
And it hurts so much to realize.
The days, the years I cant never live again.
Painstaking, heart broken, and filled with regret.
Yea it's like the time is slipping through the cracks.
But now, now I wish that I could take it back but it's never coming back.
And I thought I knew a better way.
I'd lose myself in anything that could take away the pain.
Years spent running and I never knew the cost.
But shattered mirrors and broken hearts finally showed me what I'd lose.
Yea it's like the time is slipping through the cracks.
But now, now I wish that I could take it back.
We've all been lost before we've all been knocked to the ground.
Let go of our regrets and find the strength to turn it around.
I know it might seem far too late
but we're just about to break these chains that have always held us back.
We've made our own mistakes but now it's time to set it straight.
And live our lives.
Be who we need to be and let our hearts be free.
Now we live our lives.
Be who we need to be and let our hearts be free.
Track Name: Monument
When I walk through these doors.
I see the face from thousands of nights before.
And the light in their eyes makes it more than it's ever been before.
Our blood our sweat, and all of the tears that are shed.
Our blood, our sweat, and all the words we've said.
And the promises we've kept.
I see two paths that we can take and there's a choice.
Now we have to make it.
Now we have to face it.
Can you cut your heart out and walk away from all that you believe?
Well this world can't steal your dreams.
So join the voices building in this room.
These days save us from growing old to soon.
Every word of every song the past has wrote has become our anthem.
And when our pens meet paper we add to it ourselves.
When I look around I see something, something we can build on.
And it's only getting closer to everything we've ever hoped it could be.
Join the voices building in this room.
The only person that will kill it for you is you.
If you deny al the passion in this room.
So take a breath and try to see that the beauty of these days
and the freedom they can bring can carry through our lives.
If we just take that chance and we believe.
Believe.
Track Name: One Sixteen
And the rain keeps coming.
I haven't see the sun in days.
I remember the kids that were there for me when I needed them the most.
Because of them I'd never leave this place.
My heart dropped anchor, this is where I'll stay.
This is the one place I'll never be alone, and the only place I can call my home.
Coming from where my love gets it's start.
These gray clouds more then tattooed on my arm.
From 15 kids screaming out loud that we want more.
We won't back down.
We want more.
I look at you and see how we fill these rooms.
Can't you see that it's ours?
Count the numbers, count the hearts.
Can't you see that it's ours?
Track Name: Is Anybody There?
Is anybody there?
Does anybody care?
Does anybody see what I see?
Do you remember when we used to hang out?
And we knew what we were ALL ABOUT
Different bands with different ideas
And I'm not talking back more than TWO YEARS
But now all that's finished, gone down the drain
No more scene, no more unity SCHISM REIGNS
What the fuck happened to what we said?
Was it some idiotic game we fucking played?

Is anybody there?
Does anybody care?
Does anybody see what I see?

We used to work together, band helped band
But now it's different, it's OUT OF HAND
It can't be true that I'm the only one who's proud
Of the way it used to be, am I ALONE IN THE CROWD?
Gotta get back to what it was before
'Cause we forgot what we were FIGHTING FOR
Let's end the bullshit, end it soon
So we can beat a path back
To our fucking roots!
Track Name: Harrison and Broadway
summer's air reminds me of all the times we've shared,
you remember and so do i,
and i can't wait to relive those times,
days on the calendar are counting down,
another day goes by,
it's almost time to rekindle the friendship that we have found,
'cause summertime has a way of making friendship grow and grow,
and with the feelings that generate it's impossible for me to feel low, feel low,
summer's here and all the fun begins like it did last year,
no fusses no fights,
we'll tell our children about these times,
this time we won't forget this,
and if a problem occurs we'll remember the key is forgiveness,
summertime brought us together,
our friendship grew an grew,
we can't let this slip away,
the bond between me and you,
don't let time slip away,
before it's too late,
before i'm too old,
before it's time,
we won't let i slip away
Track Name: Assume the Worst
Again you're pointing fingers, branding me before ever giving me a chance.
Stand on your soapbox and preach your word.
You never let me speak on my behalf, now everything I do is put to the test,
when you have no reason to second guess.

Something I did, it must have hurt,
'cause now you drag my name through the dirt.
I came in with best intentions, my intentions never understood.

You made your decision without giving me a try.
Again you're pointing your finger, spread the gossip and never ask me why.
Take my intentions, twist them to conform to your lies.

The rumors are now gaining weight.
When you nor anyone else has facts,
when it's all said and done, my voice will be heard.
And at that time you'll eat your words.
You made your decision without giving me a try.

So take your shots because now it's evident to me
that you don't even know what I'm about.
Believe everything you've heard, because there's no reason to doubt it.
Don't look for the truth just write me off and assume the worst.
Track Name: The Insider
The actions of a few as displayed on the news,
turns what we do, into falsities far from truth.
Today we'll break through the walls in our way.
Today we'll prove these lies are false and we're here to stay,
we've worked so damn hard for what we have today.

We can't let down our guard.
We'll prove we take pride in or name,
today we'll break through the walls set in our way,
today we'll prove these lies are false and we're here to stay.

This negative media attention is going to bury us alive.
Youth denied expression from what the public misunderstands.
We won't turn our back, we will stand strong.
Track Name: Left Your Mark
And this is where it ends after all this time, our time,
your promises, you put in your time and now you're moving on.
So we'll sever our ties and move our directions.
So this is where it ends and I know I can't abandon the past
and pretend that it never existed
because it meant the world to me, and it means the world to me.

I always thought our hopes and aspirations were considered one and the same.
I believe in the word integrity,
I believed in your integrity but, today I won't let it hold me back.
Your mark still burns so deep.

Today I'm moving on, your attitude you can keep.
And you say my feelings will pass in the days to come but,
they mean the world to me, and this means the world to me.
You had the choice of leaving, and yeah, you left your mark.

You don't understand integrity, you'll never understand integrity.
So just turn your back 'cause I'm doing the same.
We can both walk away from here with no more games.
It's so bad that it comes to this but, what did you expect?
All of my faith, my trust, my respect,
Track Name: A Thank You Note
Just wanted you to know, the kid you beat up at the show,
he just happened to be my brother.
It was his first but, I don't think there will be another.
Because of you and all your friends,
you made sure he knew where he didn't fit in.

Is this what it comes to?
I thought we dropped this shit in high school?
Just wanted to thank you for intimidating everyone in the scene,
are the doors closed?
No more applicants being accepted

Just wanted to thank you for being the jock I always hated in high school.
Now here's another story to tell all of your friends.
Tell them how you brought hardcore to an end
for the kid that thought he had found something new,
what if this happened to you?

When you first started coming around
and we made you feel like you couldn't be down,
my guess is that you wouldn't be down.
It's time to give it up
because I've had enough of your shit and the kids you beat up on,
it's not about who's been here and for how long,
since when did style and social status decide whether you can like a band,
what about what's inside?
Track Name: One to Two
There are things I'd like to say
that I've said too many times before
things I should have done
instead of looking for a way to get out

'Cause you'll never know the sorrow I felt
or the hours I've laid awake
thinking about just what you said
how could you know how I felt?
I never took the time to figure it out
or see how the problems arose
I tried to blame the two of you
I can only blame myself
for the pain we felt

There are words I should have spoken
but I kept my fucking mouth shut instead
words would've made the difference
but they always stayed unsaid

'Cause you'll never know the sorrow I felt
or the hours I've laid awake
thinking about just what you said
how could you know how I felt?
I never took the time to figure it out
or see how the problems arose
I tried to blame the two of you
I can only blame myself
for the pain we felt

Why won't you ever see?
Why won't you even see?
Why won't you ever see?
Why won't you even see?
it's not just me
it's not just me
it's not just me
it's not just me
