I know you’d like to forget But I need you now to remember There’s more to life than vote and react Defend and attack And I’m trying hard Not to take it to heart But the feedback gets to me Between the gunpoint border And the fictional virus Of our identity Beyond their control Beyond petty politics and weapons of killing time Beyond the daily war Beyond criminal damage And terror police at night When I wake up From politics That we made Will they make us slaves? Paralyze us: test animals for Killing systems Run the maze Now that you’ve met Goals that we’ve set All on target All in flight We won’t go gentle into that good night A peace we live in the heart of the fight This is our sacred ground Beyond the petty rusting orders In a rusting state White noise surrounds But it can’t seal our fate And I’m trying hard not to take it to heart The feedback gets to me Between the gunpoint border And the spiritual violence Of our identity Beyond their control Beyond the days I wonder If the sound of my voice isn’t mine sound of my voice isn’t mine Beyond the daily war The strength comes back like a bullet shot through time Shot Now we wake up from politics Remain They won’t make us slaves Paralyze us Test animals for killing systems Run the maze Now that you’ve met Goals that we’ve set All on target All in flight We won’t go gentle into that good night A peace we live in the heart of the fight rage against the dying of the light

The Bells 03:31
Ghosts on the river Centuries old hypocrises And the prisons past the estates The broken sun through the train yard gates A tunnel blocked when the seven hills shook underground Where dreams and civic virtues Are measured in bodies This town Through loudspeaker static Hear the orders at dawn This time we won’t walk the earth as targets or as pawns And I hear the bells of St. Mark Leaders and Resister's Breath Give Me Liberty Or Death And I I hear the footsteps in the park Believers in the Age Of Reason Fall From Union Hill to Masjid Bilal Ghosts On The River Centuries Old Hypocrisies In the prisons past the estates The broken sun through the train yard gate A tunnel blocked when the Seventh Hill shook Underground When dreams and civic virtues are measured in bodies: this town Through loudspeakers static Hear the orders at dawn - ready, aim This time we won’t walk the earth as targets or as pawns And I hear the bells of St. Mark Leaders and Resister's Breath Control Liberty And Whitewash Death And I I hear the footsteps in the park Believers in the Age of Reason fall From Union Hill to Masjid Bilal No one remembers No one forgets, No one remembers No one forgets No one remembers it all ‘til monuments fall No one forgets, I ! No one remembers No one forgets, I ! No one remembers No one forgets I ! No one remembers it all ‘til monuments fall Now, there’s only people left No one Remembers it all ‘Til monuments fall No One, No One, No! No One, No One, No! No One, No One, No! Remembers it all, Remembers it all Remembers it all, Remembers it all, Remembers it all ‘til Monuments fall Ghosts On The River Centuries Old Hypocrisies Monuments Fall In the Prisons past the estates The broken sun through the train yard gate Monuments Fall A tunnel blocked when the Seventh Hill shook Underground - Monuments Fall When dreams and civic virtues are measured in bodies: this town

The dreams of the West Are a ghost ship We’re taught to hold on to With false idle fictions And all that stands Between me and you Men of peace just said The state of the world is war No we won’t be led No business we’re dying for The state of world is Nightmares of the West You’re a soldier And you just wanna live to see home But there’s war in our country too And blind billionaires Between me and you Let the ship burn We’re the ocean In every shade, in every color Let the ship burn We’re the ocean The tide is rising over Our lives like crests On the waves We are The right now In action This present We break upon the bow Men of peace just said The state of the world is war The state of the world is war No we won’t be led No business we’re dying for No business we’re dying for

I can’t believe you chose to be This paranoid shell of a citizen Compliant to authority And demands of fear and war Did you choose to pimp What could be left In your heart To the annihilation of love And change in time Love and change in time Where’s the reason? Where’s the liberty? Do we tie ourselves to this game Of fear or our false idea of power? Whispered in the ear Are you sleeping? Are you waiting for some compromise? Is their vision hidden in our eyes? Hidden in our eyes Do you ask yourself in dreams And in the dying hours of working days What does this system want from me? It’s no surprise they try to take Over our actions and our anger With each fashion cult on the hanger Sacred distractions But we can only fool ourselves For so long ... Where’s the reason? Where’s the liberty? Do we tie ourselves to this game Of fear or our false idea of power? Whispered in the ear Are you sleeping? Are you waiting for some compromise? Is their longing hidden in our eyes? There is a pulse beating under this life Under this life Our Generation Suffocation First world Minute to hour Oil tanker and tower I won’t detonate this minefield For your false idea of power Where’s the reason? Where’s the liberty? Do we tie ourselves to this game Of fear or our false idea of power? Whispered in the ear Are you sleeping? Are you waiting for some compromise? Is their vision hidden in our eyes?

Opener 03:51
You brought things out in me That I didn't know Had in me And now it's out in the open Through you I work it out The Way i want me to without expectations You make me think, to see be things that I see in m e and now it's out in the open why should this head have power for the world to see i spoke to hear my worst enemy my worst enemy was me you made me think for me these things that i see in me and now it's out in the open

Before the end Will we say that we resisted falling, falling Into the viral hate This oblivion state Is not all we are All we are No one can tell you what this life means Mile after mile Step after blistered step Carry all your broken dreams Mile after mile Step after blistered step Step after blistered step So will I call out the cops and priests That numb my understanding Protest to survive It’s not over it’s all of us No one can tell you What this life means Mile after mile Step after blistered step Carry all your broken dreams Mile after mile Step after blistered step Step after blistered step No one can tell me What this life means Mile after mile Step after blistered step I’ll carry all your broken dreams Mile after mile Step after blistered step Step after blistered step Hit it when the lights are gone - Hit it when the lights are gone In the wake of every failed politics Hit it when the lights are gone The cynical laughter in the halls of broken trusts Hit it when the lights are gone Our restless frequency scours the static Hit it when the lights are gone Stand united We are all the ones on the outside Hit it when the lights are gone Hit it when the lights are gone
