Track Name: These Chains
We are just ideas of what we think we should be
Linking the chains of symbolism
Deep down we know the truth
To be happy, and to be free, we invent our enemies, foe

Don’t let the fear of this life
Destroy the love in your heart
To chain yourself to hate
Is a choice, you sealed your fate
These chains that hold us back
These chains that set us free
We shape ourselves, our perception
Is the only thing we’ll ever own

We are just ideas of what we think we should be
Linking the chains of symbolism
These chains that hold us back; hold us back
These chains that set us free, set us free

Your inner voice is so loud; it deafens all its teachers
It fills in all the blanks with, twisted darkened colours
Your assumptions will be the death of you
They leave you cold, it lets no light shine through

These chains that hold us back; hold us back
These chains that set us free, set us free
They’re smelted in our minds, in our minds
And cast around our lives. Open your heart

Open your mind.
Track Name: Choosing Leaders
In this space of time between the worlds we sense
We remember thoughts ago when visions weren't of hate
We believed in learning and inspiring those surrounding our intent
Greed and lust stirred dirt and dust with fire and bloodshed

Everything so old, it's brand new, brand new
The change it hurts I'm locked in stone, in stone
The tree and its leaves, the earth and its heart
Worlds apart from analogue, synthetic dialogue

You decide on your dependencies
You inscribe the meaning of decency
Learnt behaviour can be your saviour
And it can be what ruins recently
I'm both at once and none at all
I'm up, I'm down, I stand, and I fall
I'm right, I've left, with myself I trawl
I'm surrounded by a pit of emptiness

What happens to a child, if they're taught by greedy parents?
What happens to the world, if it's taught by greedy leaders?
What happens to the mind of iron, that's left alone at sea?
What happens to the innocent, if they're told they're guilty?
What happens when the free are sold?
What happens when we don't ask questions?
What happens when we doubt ourselves?
What happens when we stop trying?
What happens when we don’t listen?
What happens when we lose ourselves?
What happens when we’ve lost it all?
What happens when we’re trapped?
Track Name: Familiar
My mother told me that I'm safe
My father told me that he'd protect me.

My mother told me I am loved
My father told me that love is blinding.
My mother told me that people are good,
But my father told me to trust no one.

We will always remember,
And we will never forget
We will always remember,
And we will never forget
Never forget

It comes not from numbers
It comes not from greed.
It comes from your heart
It comes from a seed.
From knowing yourself
Everything grows.

We must follow a line
We must twine the string
Whatever that follows
It comes from within.
Don't wanna be close just wanna be a front.
In love with everyone you hate yourself,
You hate the most.

A hollow shell that short circuits
Is made of flesh and bone by man
Turn this terror to hate
Turn this sadness to love

Bring back all the courage
And turn thoughts into knowledge
Bring back all the courage
And turn thoughts into knowledge.
Bring back all the courage
And turn thoughts into knowledge.
Bring back all the courage
And turn thoughts into knowledge.

In a deafening world
(in a deafening world)
you gotta yell to be heard.
(you gotta yell to be heard)
In a deafening world
(in a deafening world)
you gotta yell to be heard.
(you gotta yell to be heard)
Track Name: Vultures
Dragging my feet in the desert of wealth
My mind is starved in the land of the free
The days are long, in the search for prosperity
My life revolves on control
I dream of days my days are dreams
But every oasis is poisoned by greed
Vultures

The pecks and squawks the order is feasting
Entire life unknown, no hope, you’re on your own.
There are no promises, our laws abolished them
Temptation is sewn into our hearts, indulgence is encouraged

Human life is bought and sold with ignorance and apathy
Fed bullshit and lies, no one cares for your cries. (x2)

Don't let the business man tell you you're god
He stole your wallet and he's fucking your wife
Don't let the business man tell you you’re god
He fucked the planet for himself and the life.
Don’t let the business man tell you you’re god
He fucked himself, he fucked everything

If you’re unique you will be medicated
Of different physique you will be eradicated
Popular culture, abusive father, western world
We've all had a good fucking beating

Be the change you want to be,undo the chains and fly
Free yourself of these chains and fly free

Human life is bought and sold with ignorance and apathy
Fed bullshit and lies, no one cares for your cries (x2)

Support yourself and those you love
Be vigil, be smart never reign from above
Because in the end, all we have is what we've done
Because in the end; we realize what we've become

Don't let the business man tell you you’re god
He fucked himself he fucked everything
Track Name: Disconnect
I will always be what you think I am,
Coz ya can’t understand
I am more than you can imagine.

What we take pride in is what defines us, what defines us
Taking pride in insecurity will never let you see yourself
Take pride in health, in happiness, happiness
The one who lives free among animosity

The burning heart of empathy
Will stop at nothing to show you love (x2)

These beating minds
Corrupting auras with self-sentiment
The wavering binds, of civil shutdown
Conflicting ideals
In a world not lived just assumed
Mental construction
Give me a sense of who I am

I will always be what you think I am,
Coz ya can’t understand
I am more than you can imagine.

The angel of mercy; a burning heart of empathy
To give you strength and give you life
The selfless acts that heal the word
Tear strips from self to bandage souls
Who’ve lost themselves

Are you listening?
What are you watching?
Are you dreaming?
Not believing
Disconnect
