1. This Probably Won't End Well (3:48)
Packing your things and you storm through the house
Said, no, I can't take it, I just wanna end it
And all I can think, you look good when you're angry
So, let’s take a step back and get us back on track

Mistakes that are made are the gifts that keep giving
There’s never a right time, except maybe this time

It's always something less than what I thought we had before
Like always, I'm blown away
But right now, I feel the need for something more
‘cause there's always, there's always right now

I'm not gonna let the emotions take over
This probably won't end well, but maybe I can't tell
Nothing will change, so just go through the motions
it's better in my mind, believing our own lie

Mistakes that are made are the gifts that keep giving
There’s never a right time, except maybe this time

It's always something less than what I thought we had before
Like always, I'm blown away
But right now, I feel the need for something more
‘cause there's always, there's always right now

Packing your things and you storm through the house said,
No, I can't take it, we needed to end it.
It's always something less than what I thought we had before
Like always, I'm blown away
But right now, I feel the need for something more
‘cause there's always, there's always right now
2. No Knock (2:48)
I lead the motorcade, I'll take the heat and I'll blaze the way
They'll bury me alone
This could be suicide, a one way ride to the god damn grave
They'll bury me alone

You best be ready for anything, and keep your eyes on the road
You best be ready for anything, it's a long way home

I'm fucking superman, so come on over and check my plan
We'll tear that whole place down
They'll get what they deserve, we do it right and we won't be heard
We'll get in just like ghosts

You best be ready kid, ‘cause once we're done they'll come real damn quick
And we ain't innocent, no, we ain't innocent

Bust through like a battering ram, flash bang first gives us the upper hand
Room by room, we're death incarnate tonight, take them while they're sleeping, they won't put up a fight

It's fuckin’ easy, see, we blow the front door on one, two, three
Kill everyone inside
We'll stack the bodies high and when the smoke clears, we'll all just smile
And everyone goes home

You best be ready for anything, so grab your gear and let’s go
You best be ready for anything, so enjoy the show

Bust through like a battering ram, flash bang first gives us the upper hand
Room by room, we're death incarnate tonight, take them while they're sleeping, they won't put up a fight
3. Divide (3:18)
Another sleepless night, another day just washed away
So you count your scars, hoping for a new day
I know you have the strength to pull through
The lengths I've seen you go to
So, break away and look for something new
It's so far away, yeah
Divide yourself from what you used to be
Gather your integrity
It's not a loss
You count the people you can trust
Divide, and show the world what strength can be
Live your life in honesty
It's not a loss
You count the people you can trust, divide
You've made your mind up right
But you're the one thing in your way
So, come on, cross that line, or this will never go away
I know you have the strength to pull through
The lengths I've seen you go to
So, break away and look for something new
It's not far away, yeah
Divide yourself from what you used to be
Gather your integrity
It's not a loss
You count the people you can trust
Divide, and show the world what strength can be
Live your life in honesty
It's not a loss
You count the people you can trust, divide
Another setback, another let down
I see you're on the verge of changing things tonight
So, no excuses, so, stop holding yourself back
You're wasting life, just let go and
Divide yourself from what you used to be
Gather your integrity
It's not a loss
You count the people you can trust
4. The Greatest Generation (4:00)
If you been wondering, just what has made us grow
A generation hard as stone
My father's father, may god rest his soul
He taught me something you should know
You put your shoulder to the wheel
You put your nose to the grindstone
You work your fingers straight to the bone
I won't, won't let em leave us
A generation
I won't, won't let em leave us, don't leave us
Selfless, relentless
Don't let their memory fade away
No, I won't, won't let em leave us, don't leave us
Remember what made us great
Now's the time to
Remember what made us great
They dug and shaped the earth
And with their hands gave birth
To all the modern wonders that you see
They worked from dawn till dusk
They did it all for us
If we take one thing from them it should be
You put your shoulder to the wheel
You put your nose to the grindstone
You work your fingers straight to the bone
I won't, won't let em leave us
A generation
I won't, won't let em leave us, don't leave us
Selfless, relentless
Don't let their memory fade away
No, I won't, won't let em leave us, don't leave us
I am forever grateful
I am the man I am today
(Don't leave us)
I am forever grateful
For your hand in making me this way
(Don't leave us)
5. For You (4:16)
Your plane is boarding, got to cross the ocean all alone
My heart is stone
You need to figure out the things that plague you here at home
I'll carry on
Sometimes, it's one thing
And next time, it's nothing
It's more than mistrusting
It ends up just crushing me
Stop with the fighting
I know it's the right thing
I won't let you do this
We have to get through this
So, say something, I'm not holding back
Before the scene we made goes and fades to black
Cause I can't wait while you think this through
We don't have endless time, remember who left who
Cause I won't wait, won't wait for you
Your lifeless eyes don't hold the
Same desire anymore, I can't ignore
So long I've wondered, but I think now I know
You're not coming home
Sometimes, it's one thing
And next time, it's nothing
It's more than mistrusting
It ends up just crushing me
Stop with the fighting
I know it's the right thing
I won't let you do this
We have to get through this
So, say something, I'm not holding back
Before the scene we made goes and fades to black
Cause I can't wait while you think this through
We don't have endless time, remember who left who
Cause I won't wait, won't wait for you
Put my heart in your hands
Committed my whole life to you
And all you had to say
See you in a few days
But days turn into months
This isn't what you promised me
I've gotta let you go
Or just find another way
So, say something, I'm not holding back
(I needed time to work it out alone)
6. A Reason for Me to Fight (3:42)
Biased intentions, the cause for war
They're not our sins, but they're keeping score
The look in your eyes symbolizes
All that we've become
Fight the fight, doesn't matter why
Got a job to do, and we do it right
The look in your eyes, act surprised
What have we just done
Never have I believed in something so strong
Nothing left to go wrong
Never will I break this bond
And now, I'm making a promise to get through
We'll tear it all down and light the fuse
And all I know, I won't leave you behind
And that's a reason for me to fight
That's a reason for me to
No cavalry left that we can call
We're on our own, backs against the wall
We both have spilled our blood before
Don't give up on me now
In a race to the finish line
We took our hits, now it's time to strike
A final push, just one more time
They're on the run
7. Victory Lap (3:54)
Well, there's no more big time
No more bright lights
Just a guy who's drinking alone tonight
Should a walked back your mouth
Knocked you off your high horse
With all that worthless advice you endorse
Lost the limelight you were about
What's it like to gradually fade out
Used to tear it all down, now you're tearing all up
Got em dripping in your whiskey at the brass mug
I've heard it all before
The murmurs and the whispers
I don't listen anymore
Every time I rise, you fall away
It's the same story day after day
You're voice is like poison
You can't be me
Every time I rise, you fall away
Fall away
Nothing's lost, we just don't abuse it
We're seven deep, we been caught up writing hits
Now you whine, cry, bitch, moan, say it's a waste
Sing along while I give you a taste
Yeah, here's to you and your favorite band
Yeah, they suck too
I hear your cries to the one you know you idolize
I've heard it all before
The murmurs and the whispers
I don't listen anymore
Every time I rise, you fall away
It's the same story day after day
You're voice is like poison
You can't be me
Every time I rise, you fall away
Fall away
Keep telling those tall tales, and I'll call you out
Every time I rise you fall away
All those worthless years, they're fading away
8. Pernicious (4:01)
I'm wise enough to know
These promises pernicious
The fruit of what was sewn
And still I'm reeling
Mistrust forever more
The wake you left is vicious
Your hate can't help but show
And still I'm reeling
Done throwing coins in a wishing well
Break walls
That you have built yourself
I'm done with all the lies you speak
No more
Won't turn the other cheek
How could I have ever thought it'd be worth it
You're falling farther, and farther, and farther, and farther apart
How is it you don't know
I'm wise enough to know
These promises pernicious
The fruit of what was sewn
And still I'm reeling
Mistrust forever more
The wake you left is vicious
Your hate can't help but show
And still I'm reeling
I'm growing tired, you manipulate
Your, words
They further aggravate
I drew the line, now will you make a move
Weakness
That's what's inside of you
I am still warm from transgression, aggression
I still feel the sting, can't help but question
And suffer the wrath of conditions created by you
9. Bite My Tongue (4:08)
Thought you were invincible, thought you were bulletproof
There's no use talking sense to you, in love with your abuse
Your actions speaking for your mouth, there's not much to defend
Paint yourself into a corner, staring at the end
Never one to bite my tongue, nothing's left, I've given all I've got
I'm at the wall, disintegrating
Apologies are empty words, I know you're only sorry you got caught
You're at the wall, disintegrating
Left your life in ruins, you've burned every bridge you had
You beg me just to hear you out and try to make amends
Too late now, I've heard that line, poor me, I've got it bad
Try to hold onto your life, it's slipping through your hands
Never one to bite my tongue, nothing's left, I've given all I've got
I'm at the wall, disintegrating
Apologies are empty words, I know you're only sorry you got caught
You're at the wall, disintegrating
Look yourself in the mirror, you created the problem
All your aspirations, disintegrating
So, go drown in the bottle, it's a race to the bottom
I'm not gonna watch you disintegrate alone
You're on your own, no more putting up with you, you're on your own
10. Flat Empire (4:04)
I never asked for more than just what I have
Now, what more can I do with that
I see this fall to come, it's crashing all around
No, I don't think that there's time to waste
The last time was simply a little taste
Now, I think it's just a matter of time
Wide awake, we step to the fall point
Never had thought I'd see this
Why, why, empire cannot last forever
Why, why, the best laid plans can all be cast aside
Why, empire cannot last forever
Why, why, the best laid plans can all be cast aside
Just because we all had our part to play
Doesn't guarantee us just one more day
We've seen the cost before, it's far too much to pay
Desperate times require desperate measures now
Ask a free man and he'll show you how
Our fathers paved the way for us to lash out
Wide awake, we step to the fall point
Never had thought I'd see this
Why, why, empire cannot last forever
Why, why, the best laid plans can all be cast aside
Keynesianism, live the lie
Trapped in this prison, destroying lives
11. TRU-KVLT-METAL (3:39)
Same time, the exact same place
You've got the uniform on so cliche
What a waste of my time

You are all the same
Destroy the name

Disgrace, or did you forget
All the things that made you stand out
Run in place
Can't go any farther

I won't be the same
Creating my own way

The pawn plays the king, but there's no board at all
The mindset of children that can't stand on their own
You raise up your hands in conformist salute
Will you follow the crowd or will you follow you?

I won't follow you

Who's left, they're dying off
Caving to the pressure from my enemies
Blank minds surround me

The flag you wave is dead
And you're too blame

Not bending to your ideals
Or manufactured rules you've put in place
This is not an altar

I won't be the same
Creating my own way

The pawn plays the king, but there's no board at all
The mindset of children that can't stand on their own
You raise up your hands in conformist salute
Will you follow the crowd or will you follow you?

I won't follow you

The pawn plays the king but there's no board at all

No more elitists, it's all in vein
Your narrow judgment, won't change a thing
No more elitists, it's all in vein
Your narrow judgment, won't change a thing

The pawn plays the king, but there's no board at all
The mindset of children that can't stand on their own
You raise up your hands in conformist salute
Will you follow the crowd or will you follow you?

I won't follow you
12. Criticism and Self-Realization (7:03)
One by one, they stand single file
To see the king of the hill atop his worthless pile
The king has no clothes
Throw stones
Watch him implode
All for one or are we all alone
Brick by brick, it's a house built on lies
Because illusion is easy to young adoring eyes
It's not hard to see
Through deceit
Make them believe
Fight the stampede, be the one to lead
All my missteps, I retrace
Every failure, I'll erase
My pride is gone
I find the strength to carry on
Looking back, what's left of me
Am I the person that I wanna be
Do I belong
I find the strength to carry on
Rung by rung, he's climbed up to the top
But once the engine is running, it's hard to make it stop
Ignore what you're told
Eyes closed
Dig from below
Don't care where you're from, just where you go
Step by step, we're ignoring the signs
That cocky bastard is planting the seeds of his demise
There's nothing to gain
Only shame
We fan the flames
Fight through the pain, live another day
Just one more day
All my missteps, I retrace
Every failure, I'll erase
My pride is gone
I find the strength to carry on
Looking back, what's left of me
Am I the person that I wanna be
Do I belong
Do I belong
Writing's on the wall
That Cheshire smile says you don't have the courage to take the fall
You're not fooling anyone
You're no one
All my missteps, I retrace
Every failure, I'll erase
My pride is gone
I find the strength to carry on
Looking back, what's left of me
Am I the person that I wanna be
Do I belong
Do I belong
