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

I Don't Know 04:03
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!

No Deal 03:18
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

The Company 03:18
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?

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

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

Hey Darlene 03:41
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.

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

Thirsty Man 03:14
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

Turned Away 05:23
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?
