Track Name: Division Lines
You’re on the left and I’m on right
Now there is no common ground in sight
Division lines have all been drawn
A cock fight amongst the pawns
Unity viewed as a crime
Division Lines…

At every chance we take the bait
If you want the truth, you’ll have to wait
Both you and I are so blind
It’s obvious we don’t see the signs
They’ll get what’s ours anytime
Division Lines…

I don’t trust you, you don’t trust me
Vicious animals come in different breeds
It’s so easy to manipulate
Let the fear turn into hate
But it seems like we don’t mind
Division Lines…

Bridge:
Eradicate the Enemy
He’s not a friend to you or me
Escalate and we both lose
Which side do you choose?

Division Lines, Division Lines, Division Lines, Division Lines
Division Line, Division Line, Division Line, Division Lines
Track Name: I Don't Know
I was brought here as a child
By no fault of my own
I was warned to keep my mouth shut
So no one could ever know
I couldn’t speak the language
So I started to sing
I guess that I needed the attention
And all the love that it brings

I don’t know, I don’t know
Who I am now
I don’t know, I don’t know
Who I am now

Bridge:
On the outside looking in
Played the game but I didn’t win
Couldn’t fit in
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Now, I’m much older
They keep talking about a wall
Same old hate getting bolder
Now they’re knocking on my door

I don’t know, I don’t know
Who I am now
I don’t know, I don’t know
Who I am now!
Track Name: No Deal
Give me your cruelty
This new reality
No deal
Eliminate the candidate
He’s not real

You spoke out, they shut your mouth
Now I think that there’s no way out
When the bullet hits the skull
How will you feel?

The lying empty words
Now the fate of the earth is sealed
Armies are gathering
Serving a wicked king, so kneel

You spoke out, they shut your mouth
Now I think that there’s no way out
As I look through my scope
I start to feel a bit of hope

Bridge:
You made me do this
I have no regrets
Please give mother my love

You spoke out, they shut your mouth
Now I think that there’s no way out
As I look through the scope
I start to feel a bit of hope
But now I don’t know… what is real
Track Name: The Company
Are you thankful for all the things you got?
Do you have a safe space for all your thoughts?
Do you feel a little anxious without your pill?
Did someone’s opinion break your will?
Are you lonely without your friends?
The Stimuli on which you depend
To keep you company?

Are you confusing actions for mere words?
A thing that used to be free just like a bird…
Instead you shoot it out of the sky
To prove a point and kill a lie
That you heard but cannot see
Does it keep you in good company?
Do you cry because it’s so hard being alone?

Do you blame your parents for the mess that they made?
For the debt that’s not yet been paid?
Enslaved to The Company
Is there time to break free?
Are you just another casualty?
Track Name: Is This Normal
Oh no, devil’s on the high road
Keeping his blade clean while begging to be seen
Oh no, where will we go?
Caught in between a nightmare and a bad dream

Faces in the crowd
Now he shouts out loud
Sounds just like a beating drum
People graze like sheep
Living half asleep
The wolf has come for everyone

Oh, oh, oh, Devil’s on the high road
We’re all right down here
Paying through our fears
Oh yes, this is not a test
Your patience is his will
Gives him time to kill…

Faces in the crowd
Now he shouts out loud
Sounds just like a beating drum
People graze like sheep
Living half asleep
The wolf has come for everyone

Oh, oh, oh Devil’s on the high road
My road has always been closed
No matter where it goes
Track Name: The Longest Wait
Time moves at a glacial pace when your fighting for last place
You’ve been extracted like a bad tooth
Another version of the truth that you never seem to know about
Because everybody shuts you out and puts you down

You hear them talking behind your back
Heresay about this and that
You say you’re gonna to tell ‘em off some day
But still you do nothing anyway
It never seems to be the right time
It always seems to stay in your mind
It keeps you down…

And you’re standing right there at the top of the stairs
Searching for the nerve to throw yourself down
You stop yourself because you never were that brave anyway
Your life is the longest wait
And time has sealed your fate

You wake up to another week
You roll over, go back to sleep
Color bars on the tv screen
The best show that you’ve ever seen
And you never seem to try to hard
Nothing’s written in the stars for you
It gets you down…

And you’re standing right there at the top of the stairs
Searching for the nerve to throw yourself down
You stop yourself because you never were that brave anyway
Your life is the longest wait
And time has sealed your fate
Your life is the longest wait
And time has sealed your fate
Track Name: Hey Darlene
I pulled up to my local dive
There you were barely alive
You asked for a light, so I got ya high

Pretty soon we settled down
Now we’re just a couple of ghost in this town
No one sees us now, no one can make us out

Hey Darlene, have you’ve seen the places where the rich people go
The ones in the know

Let’s take a ride to the west side
Find a house with no porch light
We’ll sit and dream on that old porch swing

So, if they try to scare us away
We’ll tell them we’ll be living here someday
Someday, someway so watch what you say

I can’t wait till we fill our plate with all we can eat
We’ll even gnash our teeth
Hey Darlene, have you’ve seen the places where the rich people go
The ones in the know
I can’t wait till we fill our plate with all we can eat
We’ll even gnash our teeth
Where the rich people go.
Track Name: These Are The Days
I serve the king on high
Creator of all lies
Now, his time has come
The stories and the fables
The traitor at the table
Now, his time has come

These are the days when God looks away
As the beast is unleashed
As the world is set aflame

You who have seen the future
And tried to warn us
Now, your time has come
Those in search of power
Thieves and the cowards
Now, your time has come

These are the days when God looks away
As the beast is unleashed
As the world is set aflame

Falsifier, Heretic
Creator of the great trick
Now, it’s time has come
Earthquakes, Rumors of war
But there is more in store
But now, it’s time has come

These are the days when God looks away
As the beast is unleashed
As the world is set aflame
Track Name: Thirsty Man
Here we are once again
Trying to get it right
Had a dream and you were there
Standing under Spanish Skies
But you were not real
You left this Earth when I was a child
Your face I wouldn’t recognize
Stood in our family’s ancient room
Tears fell from my eyes
I miss you so…

Suffering was her name
Oh my God you took her way too soon
Now I’ll never forgive you

All the love, all the love
That I should have had
Fell just like water through my desperate hands
Another thirsty man

And suffering was his name
Oh my God you took her way too soon
Now I’ll never forgive you
I will not forgive
Track Name: Turned Away
Is this your neighborhood, do you recognize the signs?
Do the faces in the street match the pictures in your mind?
They say that every dog will have its day
Now they’re chasing you away as if you were a stray

Turned away, turned away for now
Turned away, turned away for now

You’re willing to bow your head, smile and serve
When you can’t even find a place for less than you’re worth
Compromise is the disguise that you have worn
You were put in your place since the minute you were born

You got turned away, turned away for now
Turned away, turned away for now

The ones you used to know don’t call you anymore
To preoccupied to open up the door
Are you hearing voices that whisper in your ear?
Are you waiting for the chance to make them disappear?

Can they be turned away, turned away for now?
Can they be turned away, turned away for now?
