Track Name: The Reason We're Trying
It seems the world has passed me by
and even though I cannot see why I should care
I can't deny trying to find the reason why

I don't get this modern age, don't get these modern ways
we're all just trying to get by
while breaking other people's backs across the globe

we gave up hope, when we decided it was right
to trust the men, who'd sell their mothers to survive
and now we're struggling with a sense of inner-doubt
confusing us to disbelief, resulting into shouts and screams

And now we look upon the face of the man who betrayed
the last remainders of hope, and lived to tell the tale
what keeps him from dying is what keeps us from trying
to find out what happened at all

it seems the time is passing by
and with fleeting moments left
I fear there's not much more to do

unless there's someone else like you
who can direct me back to where I used to be
when I was unaware of the fate and misery

of the planet we inhabit
I'm starting to regret the point
of ever even noticing the difference
between right and wrong

and they were right when they said ignorance is bliss
now every waking moment I get tired of the same old shit

And now we look upon the face of the man who betrayed
the last remainders of hope, and lived to tell the tale
what keeps him from dying is what keeps us from trying
to find out what happened at all

The drums are calling your name
so dance to the cadence of war
a rhythm that carries both glory and fame
selecting the brave from afar

And now we look upon the face of the man who betrayed
the last remainders of hope, and lived to tell the tale
what keeps him from dying is what keeps us from trying
to find out if it mattered at all
Track Name: Untitled
There must be something wrong with my vision
cause I can see the lies that you portray
you use your holy words as ammunition
and no longer see the path from which you strayed

well, it's all heading for a giant collision
like another holy war is all you've ever craved
I think it's time for some remission of religion
so you can rediscover the faith you all betrayed

and why do you keep on clinging to these false beliefs
while every thing you can achieve is right here
you meet every man's eye with a sullen frown
are you worried that if you don't,
the sky may fall down on you?

there must be something wrong with your judgement
cause you can't see the lies that you portray
you use your holy words to blur our vision
and no longer see the path from which you strayed
well, it's all heading for a giant collision
like another holy war is all you've ever craved
I think it's time for some remission of religion
so you can rediscover the faith you all betrayed

and why do you keep on clinging to these false beliefs
while every thing you can achieve is right here
you meet every man's eye with a sullen frown
are you worried that if you don't,
the sky may fall down on you?

And if all men are created equal,
why don't you treat them all the same?
what makes you so fucking special ,
that you need to find someone else to blame?
Track Name: Leave Your Life
Leave your life and follow me
flee your force-fed destiny
the same old story same old lot
now brace yourself
see what you got

and I can bear no sympathy
the world has that effect on me
find your own epiphany
and if you do, just follow me

stand for your rights
and fight for your breath
angels and demons
won't stop til you're dead

stand for your rights
and fight for your voice
angels and demons
won't give a choice

Salute to the man but prepare your attack
take what you can give nothing back
take hold of what you believe
and what you achieve
to do otherwise would just be naive

they forced their way into your world
and then stood back to watch things unfold
it's up to you to break their hold
and don't believe in what you're told

and now I think it's clear to see
what I've tried to tell you so frantically
life your life independently
and please don't follow me
Track Name: Question Everything
As i walk through the streets
I think about the gap we have created 'tween
a simple dream and a life without resolve

and i can't sleep cause I behold
a generation of wasted youth
who don't think that their actions could be something to regret

so question everything that you face today
the world will be much better if you'd have something to say
and if you don't react to what you may or may not know
your voice will be forgotten and sink to the depths below

and based on what I've seen
what I've been told
it doesn't take too much
to have your own opinion on the matters
life throws in your way

just take a look around and you'll recognize
the misshapen truths and disgusting lies
that have been used before
to keep us all at bay

so question everything that you face today
the world will be much better if you'd have something to say
and if you don't react to what you may or may not know
your voice will be forgotten and sink to the depths below

and you leave me petrified
with your ignorance and lies that you've created
so you don't have to face the truth
Track Name: Circo Macello
Join us for drinks and stay for the blood
if you came for a spectacle you've found the right spot
but the horrors in here are all fake you see
and little Timmy's head is just tired of his body

Our grand show will feature all of your children
or at least some parts of them
together they form the star of the show
but, oh my, you've unintentionally made me digress

Take my hand and I'll show you a place that will haunt you for years
Circo Macello hasn't stolen its name
even with one visit you'll never be the same again
you'll never sleep soundly again
