Track Name: Test of Time
Building and Building
We construct what is ours
Bigger and Bigger
Our numbers grow large
Tie and Bond
Together we are strong
Crumble and Fall
Never thought about
Building a future
That is ours to hold
Some things in life
Never get old
The music the message
We sang every word
Our numbers still strong
Our voices still heard
We stand the test of time
While others fade away
We move toward the future
No regrets about yesterday
Building and Building
We construct what is ours
Tie and Bond
Together we are strong
We stand the test of time
While others fade away
We move toward the future
No regrets about yesterday
We stand the test of time
We stand the test of time
We stand the test of time
We stand, the test of time
Track Name: Change the Rules
GROW UP!
MOVE ON!
Away from this youth culture scene
All these voices telling me exactly how to be
Who made these rules?
Telling me how to live and breath
Not going to follow their path
Carving my own way
IT’S UP TO US TO…
Change the rules
Find our way
Believe in ourselves
Who cares what they have to say
Not Growing Up!
Not Moving On!
Not Growing Up!
Not Moving On!
Rules created
To keep us in our place
Rules created
To help others save face
Nothing will change
Unless we take a stand
Nothing will change
Unless we force their hand
CHANGE THE RULES
Change the rules
CHANGE THE RULES
Change the rules
We have the power
To effect real change
Get up and fight
Do what you can
NOW…
Track Name: Open Doors
If you’re tired of the life you lead
Tired of feeling incomplete
Maybe you made a mistake
Felt there wasn’t another way
I’d give anything to have you back
Open Doors, no questions asked
So quick we are to throw people away
For the personal decisions they have made
I could never do that to a friend
Right or wrong it’s their choice in the end
I would give anything to have you back
Open Doors, open doors, no questions asked
All I can offer is a way back
Open Doors, open doors, no questions asked
Don’t care if you broke the edge
Something inside you changed
Maybe you a mistake
Felt there wasn’t another way
I’d give anything to have you back
Open Doors, no questions asked
I could never do that to a friend
Right or wrong it’s their choice in the end
Straight edge, round two
Welcome back!
Track Name: Blindsided
Passive Aggressive
Passive Aggressive
Passive Aggressive
Passive Aggressive
You say everything is fine
When there not
Passive Aggressive
Passive Aggressive
Passive Aggressive
Passive Aggressive
Build up your rage
Till it all comes pouring out
Blindsided, my reaction
What am I suppose do
Without knowing this tension
That exists between me and you
Time for an attitude change
Why
Don’t
You
Leave
Me
The
Fuck
Alone
Track Name: Renovate
Too much time building things up
Only to break the them down
Stop throwing it all away
Renovate what’s inside
WHAT”S INSIDE!
Learn from the past
Create something new
RENOVATE!
Make it part of you
RENOVATE!
The bonds the hold us together
Are more than just glue
RENOVATE!
Track Name: Square One - Death by Nostalgia
Let's go back to square one
Where we sang along with that old swan song
Believing in those words
The anthem of our dying breed
While most turned the page or turned to dollars in the end
We read it one more time, absorbed what the messenger had meant
It means more to me now than it did back then
And I'm more clever now than I ever was
Ready to expand on all the time well spent
Ready to get back to square one
It seems the older that I get
The harder it becomes
To keep step in time
To keep friends around
I'll never be a person who can just walk away at anytime
And I'll try my best to keep whats left from falling way behind
IT'S JUST THE SAME FIVE KIDS THAT IT WAS BACK THEN
AND WE'RE MORE CLEVER NOW THAN WE EVER WERE.
READY TO EXPAND ON ALL THE TIME WELL SPENT
READY TO GET BACK TO SQUARE ONE
But it seems all the forces holding me back
From remembering the times that we had.
The spark is back on the inside
I want nostalgia until the day I die
But it seems all the forces are holding me back
From remembering the times that we had.
The spark is back on the inside
I want nostalgia until the day I die
The older that I get
The harder it becomes
To keep step in time
To keep friends around
I'll never be a person who can just walk away at anytime
And I'll try my best to keep what's left from falling far behind
FAR BEHIND
Track Name: Social Media Scare
Disconnect from reality
We've forgot how to relate
A thousand friends online
The real ones we forsake
Conversations have been replaced
By status updates
Social media scare
Forgive me if I don't partake
Calculated messages
Devoid of any flaw
We use to talk all night
Now we don’t talk at all
You use to make time for me
Now those times are gone
Social Media Scare
What happened to a friendship once strong?
Track Name: Point of No Return
Come too far to give up now
Engrained in my thoughts, part of my lifestyle
Social pressures, no effect on me
Drug free, meat free, a conscious state of being
Those values that were taught to you
Are nothing more than the half truth
When you’re young you’re not given a choice
When you’re old you only consume more
Can’t tell me what to eat
Can’t tell me what to drink
Made up my own mind
Not swayed by what you think
Lessons learned
And lessons taught
Decisions made
Out of conscious thought
Eat, eat
Drink, drink
Consume, consume
You don’t even think
NO RETURN!
This life I chose
Against common thought
A life I live
Against what I was taught
Half my life
I've lived this way
Half of which
I won’t throw away
Track Name: Inclusion
Finding ways to divide ourselves
Elitist cliques, scene politics
Arguments from within
Creating rifts, all this pettiness
Imagine how it’d be to all be close, singing along, excited for shows
A community without rules, unity, not factions of fools.
Back to back
Shoulder to shoulder
We're on the front lines
Helping each other
Back to back
Shoulder to shoulder
We're on the front lines
We’re helping, each other
I'm here for you
And you for me
Brother and sister
The way it should be
We've gotta cut all this he said she said
We're for commUNITY
It's a community
