Track Name: BLOCKED BY A WALL
BLOCKED BY A WALL
From the day I was born I was blocked by a wall
Crawling from the womb I was blocked by a wall
In the church in the school, blocked by a wall
Try to find my way in life – blocked by a wall!

Tried to feel emotion I was blocked by a wall
Tried to know love, blocked by a wall
Searching for the sun I was blocked by a wall
Just to know if I’m alive!
Blocked by a wall!
Track Name: WHAT WE BELIEVE
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Looking back on the way things once were
Everything seen in black and white
We were young and naïve but our hearts were in the right
Before everything became diluted by compromise

LET’S GET IT BACK!
TAKE IT BACK TO WHAT WE BELIEVE!

The years roll along and it’s easy to forget
Getting worn down by day to day
But every time I take the time to really look around it comes back again.
What’s wrong- and what’s right!
Track Name: BREAKING THROUGH
BREAKING THROUGH
I can’t believe that I’ve come so far to be so far behind
Progress seems unattainable- when there is no clear path
Too many obstacles in my way,
I’M BREAKING THROUGH!
Change must come today! I’m breaking through!
Just when the smoke starts to clear, there’s another fire
But I will breach these flames- there can be no other way
I’m breaking through, I’m breaking through!
It’s an endless struggle, but I’m breaking through
Change must come today – because I’m breaking through
Sick motherfuckers!
Track Name: NO CAPITULATION
NO CAPITULATION
Things been getting rough, and we’re starting to fall behind
I’m afraid to say thoughts of failure are creeping into my mind
We’re fighting amongst ourselves, and its tearing out my heart!
AAAAGH!!! There’s something I gotta say!
NO DEFEAT! NO CAPITULATION! We will keep pressing on
I look around and I don’t know what to say
Overwhelmed by all the bullshit that keeps heading our way
The future looks so dim, but I know one thing is true
I’m gonna rise above this shit if it’s the last fucking thing I do
Track Name: HEARTS OF STONE
HEARTS OF STONE
When suffering and madness become commonplace
It gets overwhelming
And we haven’t even seen the worst of it yet
We’re so sheltered- is this the best we have to give?
Is this the measure of our lives?
Cynicism can be comforting, when everything is a lie
MELT THESE HEARTS OF STONE!
The life support systems begin to erode
The patterns can clearly be traced
And we sit transfixed hurtling headlong to our doom
As if there is no other way
Is there a spark of life that sets us apart from the loveless, lifeless hordes?
Is there a way to find a way to try?
Is there anything? Anything?
Track Name: THERE IS A WAY
THERE IS A WAY
I hear you saying that there’s no hope
You know I’ve felt it too
Things going on in this world can wreck your soul
But if I open my eyes each morning, I got to know the reason why
Sick of feeling helpless-
Sick of feeling hopeless,
Looking for a path up out of this hell!
THERE IS A WAY to fight them, and there will come a time-
How can you say that we have no chance when we never even fucking try?
THERE IS A WAY!
And there will come a time…..
They’re tearing up the earth faster than it can heal, taking everything she’s got
Ecosystems dying, species declining, man, it doesn’t look good
It’s too easy to sit back and watch, letting it all fall down
But if we’re all gonna die anyway, at least I’m gonna know which side I’m on!
Track Name: WASTELAND
CROSSING THE WASTELAND
Life ain’t just a struggle - It’s a fucking daily war!
I’m just trying to survive, conceptualize what I’m doing this for

WE’RE CROSSING THE WASTELAND
(Needing safe passage)
CROSSING THE WASTELAND
(To an unknown future…)


I think of the loved ones we left behind
I remember their faces
Staring in the flames of the fire at night
I wish they could join us…
There’s a distant speck on the horizon ahead
I can see it dimly
We might reach it tomorrow if we survive this night
Track Name: LIBERATION
LIBERATION
Sometimes it seems that we’re caught in a trap
That human evolution is standing still
Doomed to repeat the same mistakes forever
I’m looking in a mirror
I don’t like what I see
I’m not doing what I know is right
And though my problems aren’t shit to the rest of the world
like so many others, I’m crawling towards the light

LET’S BREAK THESE CHAINS
CAST OFF THESE CHAINS
LIBERATION! LIBERATION!

Oppression comes in many forms, from within and from without-
I see people on the streets shedding blood for freedom
Would I have the courage to do what they do?
You can surrender to subjugation, or you can try to fight -
The choice you make, the path you take will be with you the rest of your fucking life!
