Track Name: Lest We Forget
Racing through our lives in a hurry
Visions we once had is now blurry
Look at us what do you see?
Strings so tense controlling me!

As we feed the greed of the hungry
Monsters in our realm of reality
Look at us what do you see?
Pawns on a board stop pushing me!

Machines are born and raised is what I see
Books and papers, drugs in its glory
Look at us what do you see?
Cageless birds with broken wings!

As we moved along the way
Would you let it slip away?
Did we let it slip away?

Don’t back down
Shout it loud
Kill this hype
Stand and fight!
Track Name: Kleptos
Wake up
White shirts
Smart ties
Sweet rides

Streetlights
Too bright
Shades down
Highways

Show up
Speak lies
Fake lines
Always

Flipside
Cash prize

Search deep down
Once you’ve found
Don’t deny
Those folds

Are we bold?
To believe what we were told?
Will this end?
Where do we still stand today?

Some things just won’t change, now have we let ourselves astray
Some things just won’t change, we let them take it all away
Take a stand and make it better, say what we will say
Take a stand and make it better, say what we will say
Track Name: Crooked Crown
Come back down
To the ground
Where roots were stronger! Deeper!

Turn back time
When you’re in line cheers were made
Not the hate!

They drift away
Far away
As you stray
Disarray
Far away
As you stray!

Lay your crown
Drown the hounds
Wash it away

What you say
Shall only be
Your dismay
In memories

Sound goes around
I hear all your betrayals
I see all your betrayals

The sound goes around
I hear all your betrayals
I see all your betrayals
Track Name: Darkest Hour
Raising us up to keep on saying their name
And now
It is done they’re taking over

Teaching us young just to see their name
And now
It is done don’t even shout! shout! shout!

Break it down right now!

They have us in control…
They have us in their hands...

It starts with a question
Questioning the uncertainties
In the ways how we live our lives

It takes a day to plant a simple seed
Watch it grow for months and months
And after all these years

Just to let them cut it down, set it on fire and let it burn down to the ground

A sinister act of selfishness resides in each and every one of us.
But these corporations, making millions, not thinking once for the billions of people
With the things that they do!

And we say
We say!

Take!
Take!
A look!
Around!
Don’t hold back today!

Take…
Take…
A look…
Around…

Don't hold back today!

And so to speak
We find ourselves in such situations
We depend on one another
I say, keep on moving.
Keep looking around
And ask ourselves
We need to ask ourselves a simple question
And the question is
What
Is the meaning
Of
Time
Track Name: Be Kind / Save Thyself
Save Thyself
Realise!
Realise!

Save Thyself
Wicked Lies!
Wicked Lies!

Save Thyself
It's a Heist!
It's a Heist!

Save Thyself
Awake!

Don’t you feel the life being sucked out of you?
It doesn't matter what you can do

Don’t you feel the life being sucked out of you?
It doesn’t matter what you can do

It is the survival of the riches
To please the ones who leeches
And to all the wrinkled pawns
Continue to mow the lawns
Most of them are blind
To see what’s there behind
A pitiful brainwashed mind
Living in their dream all fine

Wake them up right now!
So we could sleep well tonight!
Wake the fuck right now!
Track Name: Sleep Well Tonight
As we believe that we will be
Like fresh flowers in the sun

As we believe that we’ll make it there
Dreams of ours glowing in the sun

I hope you sleep well tonight
Knowing that for all your time
You’ll be living a life unfair

Hopes and dreams aren’t meant to be
In this land where we will lay

Hopes and dreams aren’t meant to be
In this land where we will lay

We will lay, we will lay, we will lay
Knowing that for all your time

Once more, as we proceed
They’re taking over they’re taking over...

Moments In between our lives
They’re gonna set the gun, set the gun, set the gun!

If you’re asking for so much more
We’re not getting any better

If you’re asking for so much more
They would have nothing to say

They would think they’re unstoppable
So we gonna stop them today!

We will be unstoppable
Shining through our lives

I hope you sleep well tonight
Knowing that for all your time
Hopes, dreams are meant to be!
Hopes, dreams are meant to be!
Hopes, dreams are meant to be!
Track Name: Tomorrow
Have we ever thought about those little things?
The ones that fade, far away
You know what I'm saying

Ever wondered why life is such a game?
Let's keep on rolling the dice
You know we’re all playing

There are moments when time flies so fast!
And when we are all alone
You know it ain’t moving

Could we all be living for a reason?
Or just a simple being
And we are just waiting!

I see emotions right through your eyes
Dark mannered self-pity to another degree
But if you feel there’s a ray of light inside
I hope there's a chance for you to shine it out

I see emotions right through your eyes,
Dark mannered self-pity to another degree
But if you feel there’s a ray of light inside…

Could our glasses be half-filled or empty?
Perspective that comes to the mind
Shall tell us ev-e-ry-thing

The reminiscing on the relic memories
Bites us so hard in the back
It’s not worth keeping at all

A pretty small glitch in the human nature
Hidden from the naked eye
In the minds, they’re ever so clear

A pretty small glitch in the human nature!

Quit your absent-mindedness
And fucking roar!

I see emotions right through your eyes
Dark mannered self-pity to another degree
But if you feel there’s a ray of light inside
I hope there's a chance for you to shine it out

I see emotions right through your eyes
Dark mannered self-pity to another degree
But if you feel there’s a ray of light inside…

Let’s not talk about tomorrow
If we can’t settle the things today
You put yourself with lots of sorrows
Don’t you pull me to the stray

In a hurry
We’re lost
Not searching
Just moving
And thinking
With our eyes
Not open at all!

I see emotions right through your eyes
Dark mannered self-pity to another degree
But if you feel there’s a ray of light inside
I hope there’s a chance for you to shine it out

I see emotions right through your eyes
Dark mannered self-pity to another degree
But if you feel there’s a ray of light inside…

Let’s not talk about tomorrow
If we can’t settle the things today
You put yourself with lots of sorrows
Don’t you pull me to the stray
