Track Name: Prisoner
I stand in line again
Nobody can move
Can't make no eye contact
So I stare at my shoes
These people next to me
Haven't been here before
Can't make a run for it
Stare longingly at the door

Now we can see
The guns pointed directly at us
Our bodies have gone numb
And there's nothing, no one

I stand in line again
This time we can move
Consistent eye contact
There’s a shift in the mood
These people next to me
We've been here before
So we make a run for it
And we burst through the door

Now we can see
The guns pointed directly at us
Our bodies have gone numb
And there's nothing, no one
Now we can hear
The guns shooting directly at us
No matter how fast we run
There is nothing, no one
Dead
Track Name: Capitol
Dragged into this mess
Like I'm nothing less than a worthless pawn in a game of fucking chess

You just can't seem to see
How this affects me
Your games are a waste of energy and space
Where's your good intentions?
There's no mention, in anthems
Of killing us deliberately
You're living hypothetically

So fuck what you think
And what you want me to be
It's good for you
Nothing positive for me
Fuck what you think
And what you want me to be
You are trying to change me
Appearance and my personality
Question your motives
Forever consuming me

Fuck what you think
Fuck what you think
And what you want me to be

I can't see an end to these games we're playing
I'll go on my own terms shouting
Fuck what you think and what you want me to be
Do I have to end it on my own?
Maybe there’s no options
I could not care less so

Fuck what you think
Fuck what I've become
Track Name: Forever Defined
Why do we have to live like this every day?
It makes no sense how this injustice can stay
Could make a break just run for miles and miles
But we'd be rounded up and left for the flies

There's no way out
There's no way out from here
There's no way out
Cause we can't help but to destroy ourselves
There's no way out, from here

But we don't have to live like this everyday
Gather support so we can live life our own way
Protest injustice, our movement will rise
We're taking over just one step at a time

Maybe we'll manage keep the peace for a while
But unrest grows amongst those who we've exiled
For unto them our suffering we have piled
Beneath the ashes lies potential for fire

And just one spark could blow it up in our face
A revolution starts as history repeats
As humans we will be forever defined
Cause we can't help but to destroy ourselves in time
Track Name: Coward
When I look at you all I can see
Is the person I will never be
Best friend in my family tree
And I hate myself for leaving you all by yourself
The sickness was taking your health
I was too scared to stay by your side

And I hate myself for how I made you feel you didn't matter
When I swear that you meant everything to me

Saying goodbye will be
Watching you leave will be
Burying you will be
The end of me
Track Name: Believe
Emptiness always surrounding me
As I walk down this path of insecurity
The tension grows
Everyone's eyes on me
My esteem it slips away into obscurity

Can't keep living through their eyes
Can't you people see that I am fucking trying?
Hard to give a fuck when all these people are dying
Gonna need a spark to light this fucking fire

Got to bring them down
Give us something to believe in
Track Name: Circle
Stuck inside a rut
There is no way out
You can't change this

We're all lost and confused and we're tired
Our hearts have been lacking a fire
We've been left here to fucking expire

We can't save the world
We can't save the world
We're just fucked
And we just need to get rid of ourselves
