Track Name: Cut & Hunt
Forgotten times and forgotten names
Of the ones that carved the way
The memory deceives the mind into thinking of the fame
Let down after let down the support will fade away
The structure of success isn't built by one
There’s a collective rising that’s just begun
Don’t take the risk in letting them turn their back onto this day
It’s a day when you need them the most
When your life has washed away
You've built this up
To be more than it’s fucking worth
Your big name status means shit to us
The end of you is nigh
So when will you fall from your horse
When you do I’ll be there
And I hope you fall fucking hard
So take away what you've been given
And compare it to what you have earned
When the gifts have gone what have you got
Let’s see what you’re really worth
You will lose your loved ones
But I’ll stand strong, yes I’ll stand strong
You will lose your loved ones
But I’ll fight on, yes I’ll fight on
You will lose your loved ones
But I’ll stand strong, I will stand strong
You will lose your loved ones
But I’ll fight on, I will fight on
Don’t you think it’s time?
To thank the ones who made your life
There you go again
You lost control, in the eyes of them you’re worth no more
Remember when, remember when the spotlight shined down on you
You’re fucked
You used to spit words that bragged of tales that were not true
The end of you is nigh
So reach out to those who still stand by you
You lost the right to run this show
Elitism will get you nowhere
Forgotten times and forgotten names
Of the ones that carved the way
The memory deceives the mind into thinking of the fame
Let down after let down the support will fade away
You've built this up
To be more then it’s fucking worth
Your big name status means shit to us
The end of you is nigh
Face up to the truth
You will cower at the thought of being forgotten
Track Name: At Graves End
So if we won’t
Live forever
Why are we waiting
On someone else

You sent us down the path
To our graves end
Where every let down is another
Engraving on your tombstone

Cold winds enter into another empty room
Where the flame in you is put out
You've burnt the candle
You've burnt the candle at both ends

The worst reputation that you've been given
Is the one that you've given yourself

Your only weakness is you
So which one of us will die first
Cause I'm sure, yes I'm sure
I’ll be the one left dancing on your grave

We are hungry but we cannot eat
We are tired but we cannot sleep
The stress you've caused
Is taking over
And we can no longer think

For years we've had no money, no home
But a family to call our own

We know that life has got to be hard
Otherwise we have not been tested
We won’t ever take the easy way out
We won’t ever take the easy way out
We know that life has got to be hard

We don’t understand the point of your existence
If your life consists of false promises

So we can go knuckle to knuckle
To turn dust into dust
The hinges of us
Are beginning to rust

The price you pay is written by your own hand

The poison in you
Destroys everything that’s been built
The poison in you
Destroys everything

So sit down and read between the lines
Sit down and read between
And read between the lines

You've sent us to our graves end
Track Name: The Promise
This is the broken town where treachery is lived and breathed
It’s nothing more than meets the eyes that surface from the deep
Within this town there lives a child who’s sad and cowardly
He resents the thoughts of wanting more or even prevailing

Now is the time to rise and mean something
In a world that’s of the charts
The scribes are at his feet

He never wanted to be part of what’s laid out for him
It’s not his fault, it’s not his fault

This is the way the world works
Challenging his every move
It needs no rest it needs no sleep
It splits the wicked from the pure

He was given a promise from a promised land
There’s something there for him for everyone

His actions his actions
Will repent the sins of your king

Now is the time to reach for the stars
Now is the to reach upon the stars and make his mark

This is his life
Don’t take it away from him
It’s not your choice
He promised to be something

He never wanted to be part of what’s laid out for him
It’s not his fault, it’s not his fault

This is the way the world works
Challenging his every move
It needs no rest it needs no sleep
It splits the wicked from the pure

Go far and claim your freedom
This war is won you've done it
Now watch as the masses bow down
This war is won you've done it
Track Name: Dread
Somebody’s screaming murder in the night sky
Somebody’s screaming die
No one’s around to witness the havoc that ensued this night
Because of this moment someone’s lost a loved one
Their endless tears seek truth
The answers are kept within the guilty conscience
Of a wayward soul

This will take all your thoughts
To find out what is real
This will take all your thoughts
To find out what escapes you

The facts will validate your fears
Life has not stopped without them

So send out the search lights
And put your faith in them
They will light up your way
The passage will be clearer

Don’t you think there may be more than meets the eye
Look deep into the pupils of those who survived
They will be held in contempt cast out by the rest
Lost souls they wonder with no hope only regret
They will be held in contempt for life

Somebody’s screaming murder in the night sky
Somebody’s screaming die
No one’s around to witness the havoc that ensued this night
Because of this moment someone’s lost a loved one
Their endless tears seek truth
The answers are kept within the guilty conscience
Of a wayward soul

This will take all your thoughts
To find out what is real
This will take all your thoughts
To find out what escapes you

The facts will validate your fears
Life has not stopped without them

Close your eyes
Cover your ears
Shut your mouth
It starts now

Don’t you think there may be more than meets the eye
Look deep into the pupils of those who survived
They survived

So what will you believe?
Track Name: In This Life Not The Next
I'm staring into a vacant reflection
I cannot help but think about
What has not yet been achieved
There’s always more to come
Cause when times are hard
You find out who your friends are
They’re the ones who keep by your side
Even when you have to go it alone

Don’t know what I want
Don’t know how I feel
My misery has been concealed
Time after time

I'm tied between being
And being someone
Will there ever be a name for myself
Or a legacy live left alone

I have wanted something so much
In my whole life
But the work is taking its toll
It’s always seeming way too much

Now does my heart still beat at all?
It feels just like the pulse has gone
This isn't what I thought it would be
It’s hard and the strain might be killing me

I'm gunna hold on
And never let go
These dreams of mine are stories yet told

I don’t remember where I'm from
I don’t know who the fuck I am
This is my hunting ground
And I will slay my demons down

This is a dream that I have
When awake and asleep
I have never really spoken to anyone
No one ever knows the truth

I’ll take my coat cause if the heavens open
I don’t wanna be anywhere close to hell
Sat watching the world come alive
Day by day my memories collide

I'm the skater kid that could not skate
The city urbanite that lives in the suburbs
The high roller with no money
And the fighting type with no muscle

I think I have lost my mind
This foe of mine is the tired me
That is trapped inside the thoughts that
Cast shadows on bright light days
At some point my life will fade away
I said time will tell
But the clocks ran out
One day I hope to see myself
In another light
When skies thicken black
Will we ever again shine bright

I don’t know where I'm from
I don’t know who the fuck I am
This is my hunting ground
And I will slay my demons down

I'm gunna hold on and never let go
These dreams of mine are stories yet told
Does my heart beat alone?
It seems as though the pulse has gone
This will always mean more to me
