Track Name: Our Time
...And I won't stand for the things I've seen
Atrocities been forced down on human beings

Formed agendas behind closed doors
The grave is a new future for the innocent souls

Trick the masses while we stand aside
Intimidation and incarceration steadily on arise

But we stand for justice or so we say...
Behind the scenes there's plans and schemes
to segregate and push away

(Chorus)
Behind the veil, you'll find the truth
Their plan's corrupted all our youth
It's our time, behind enemy lines
All we wanted was the truth

And I don't know what I've been told
Thoughts and opinions of my own are now all void

Systematically destroyed
New generated crime-waves and mandates now employed

The streets are talking to those who hear
Still there are those who intimidate with violence and fear

...But they stand for justice or so it's said
When you're killed because the truth is spilled
You can see the innocents bloodshed

(Chorus)

Pick it up! Pick it up!
Track Name: For Better Or Worse?
It's in the world, it's in the street
Can't solve all your problems with their chemistry
Some for better more for worse
Think it's great until the side-effects disperse

(Chorus)
Leave me alone, I was better off from the get-go
Leave me alone
Now myself, now I'm a drone

It doesn't matter how I act
Or what I'm gonna do next
It only matters how the medication takes
How it takes effect

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Leave me alone, now I'm not myself
Spreading your medication around like a disease
Now I'm a drone, now I'm not myself
Because lately I don't feel keeled out evenly

(Chorus)
Track Name: Passing Phase
The steering wheel of life is loose
My brain is wasted space, my body's got no fucking use
My soul is gone, it's been released
I feel like its time for me to admit complete defeat
Well I'm still living, right in the scum
A shitty city, I know that I said that I'd be gone

(Chorus)
It's just a passing phase, I'll get through my mind's maze
One day I'll win the war
My body's spent, my mind is weak,
These fucked-up situations won't occur no more, no more, yeah

The choice is now, decision's here
I've got a thousand voices yelling all up in my ear
My scene is set, my stage is clear
Turn on the lights and watch my conscious disappear
Well this decision, Oh just this one
Load the final bullet in my Russian Roulette gun

(Chorus)

[Guitar Solo] Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah

(Chorus)
Track Name: Freeze Up (Operation Ivy cover)
Empty factories to the east and all our waste
The shape of things that came shows on the broken workers face
To the west you'll find our silicon promised lands where
Machines replace our minds for systematic profit plans
The course of human progress staggers like a drunk
It's steps are quick and heavy and it's mind is slow and blunt
I look for optimism but I just don't know
Its seeds are planted in a poison place where nothing grows

[Chorus]
It's two thousand and fifteen, stand up and take a look around
Our hears are bitter & good intentions are sinking down
Drunk with power and fighting one another
Every hour shows the winter getting harder
There's a freeze (there's a freeze) up coming...
There's a freeze up (there's a freeze up coming...)
There's a freeze (there's a freeze) up coming...
There's a freeze up coming...

One nation stands the tallest radiating blinding light
Plastic and fluorescent energy robbing us of sight
Set in our way content with our decay
We wave the flag of freedom as we conquer and invade
Ever ask yourself where's my place in this hell
But no ones there to tell you cuz they don't know that themselves
The well rehearsed lines from our elated politicians
No longer offer solace we can see the self destruction

[Chorus]

Just one political song, just one political song
To drop into the list that stretches years and years long
Just one political song, just one political song
To drop into the list that stretches years and years long

Static and division is increasing like a storm,
We are shelter, we are forewarned,
Nothing can be changed except ourselves,
Nothing can be changed except ourselves,

There's a freeze up... (Start Runnin')
There's a freeze up coming...
There's a freeze up...
There's a freeze up coming...
There's a freeze (there's a freeze) up coming...
There's a freeze up (there's a freeze up coming...)
There's a freeze (there's a freeze) up coming...
There's a freeze up coming...
