Deafened by explosions on TV, everybody's got a gun because they're free. Blinded by a fake celebrity smiling from beneath the glow of tiny screens. We are fed, we are fattened. We are raised not to rise. Now we see how it happens. Rise and shine. We are weak, we are saddened: The united untied. Now we ask "How could this happen?" Rise and shine. Silenced by a fear of a belief. Caught up in the hate and insecurity. Borders drawn in blood of enemies pooling into patriotic anarchy. I blame myself for a lot, but now it's on you. Line 'em up, take a shot. It's all we can do.

Last Time 03:41
Why bother? You'll break me either way Build me up in jaded disarray I've got a feeling it'll be a long time before I trust again I've got a feeling it'll be the last time you catch me buying in One more for the road Watch as I float One more time One last time Why bother wishing it away? Racing through every wasted day I doubt I'll ever see the morning light before it starts to dim I doubt I'll ever make it out alive I'll die for settling Where is the art is assembled parts? Take it away and tear it apart

The Road 04:05
don't look back, the way is lost the road is cracked, through the dark you'll never find it again familiar days filter through time and space from the other side I'm nothing like you you were all those years ago you've got a funny way of showing that you love me you've got a funny way of showing that you need me caught between love and hate lingering in the greyest light, I see you smile but I can't walk no, I can't run I won't forget the promises you broke when we were still young young at heart, we fell apart you've got a funny way of showing that you love me you've got a funny way of showing that you need me apologies don't mean a thing when all of these excuses bring apologies even after all these years you've got a funny way of showing that you love me you've got a funny way of showing that you need me even a rock can roll into quicksand it took us years, but now we can all stand.

Set Fire 03:55
sick old giant, your tired eyes have seen it all alone and quiet, no one around will hear your call kingdoms crumble, empires fall and we all lay in the rubble, caked in ash of dying days set fire to the sea set fire to the city sick old giant, your beaten heart is bleeding out ring by ring, you're rotting from the inside out I look forward to summertime, but I don't even know why this winter's been harsher than ever before and I'd kill for a reason to escape into seasons and let days melt away through the cracks in the floor
