Track Name: Complaint Dept.
Surefire agenda scrolled on an empty page
You built platforms and pedestals with a sense of outrage

VILIFY CRUCIFY POLITICIZE

Acknowledge the problems, and you offer no solution
Keep waiting for a revolution
Just sob-stories and pleas
You plead for a hand-out
Life ain't so fair, Yea, it ain't so fair

VILIFY CRUCIFY POLITICIZE
Track Name: The Threat Of Nostalgia
Looking fondly into the past, neglecting the need for progress
You found solace in rhetoric
You bought the snake oil, and failed to see

The threat of Nostalgia
Yearning for what we're told
Your brick and mortar was bought and sold

Your heart remains in the fabric of the identity of fabrication industry
It's all an ad to intoxicate our minds with toxic thinking and blind eyes to

The threat of Nostalgia
Yearning for what we're told
Your brick and mortar was bought and sold

THE THREAT OF OUR FUTURE
BEING BASED ON OUR PAST
THE THREAT OF DELUSION
BENEATH A RULING CLASS
Track Name: Procedure 203-11
Starving for control
Consuming every action
Your fear of losing ground is transparent

The archaic tactics
The excuse is self-defense
SERVE/PROTECT
Asphyxiate, and turn deaf to "I CAN'T BREATHE"
SERVE/PROTECT
"I CAN'T BREATHE"
Track Name: Six Years/Tears
Smothered, and held captive inside to keep up the front that I've got nothing to hide
Normalizing the numbness over years of avoidance

DELAYED CONFRONTATION, MISREAD STRENGTH & WEAKNESS
DELAYED CONFRONTATION TO MAINTAIN THE DECEPTION
MY REPRESSED SELF-AWARENESS
THOSE SIX YEARS, AND I BEAR WITNESS

Pressure built up in fear
I'm coming to terms with the reality of tears

DELAYED CONFRONTATION, MISREAD STRENGTH & WEAKNESS
DELAYED CONFRONTATION TO MAINTAIN THE DECEPTION
MY REPRESSED SELF-AWARENESS
THOSE SIX YEARS, AND I BEAR WITNESS

Those six years were deafening, but the silence lost
Let the tears flow
Track Name: 83 Cents
She's not a silent smile who knows their place, or a second class being forced to plead her case
Close the gap
Following years unjust, and be vigilant towards them without an ounce of trust

CLOSE THE GAP

An age old restraint, an age old anguish
She has a voice, and will refuse to be dismissed
I'm not a silent smile who knows my place, or a second class being forced to plead my case

CLOSE THE GAP
WE.MUST.RESIST
Track Name: Revival
I was all out of hope, and drank from a glass half-empty, with my head to the ground
I had faith in nothing
I was cold and loveless
Better off dead, until you breathed new life into me

BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO ME

Now the sun shines a little bit brighter
You cast out the burden that buried me
Your the light that's guiding us
You breathed new life into me
Track Name: Lehigh Viaduct (Heroin Highway)
Foillow the tracks, and find your destination
You were born here
You'll die here
Salt your own wounds
Abandon your family
You were born here
You'll die here

HEROIN HIGHWAY
FOLLOW THE TRACKS
DOWN THE HIGHWAY
PRE-DESTINED TRAP
HEROIN HIGHWAY

Open air market, more like scenes from a morgue
They're trapped
We watch
Too hopeless to cry out
too cold to care
They're trapped
We watch

HEROIN HIGHWAY
FOLLOW THE TRACKS
DOWN THE HIGHWAY
PRE-DESTINED TRAP
HEROIN HIGHWAY

TOO HOPELESS TO CRY OUT
TOO COLD TO CARE
