1. Lies Are a Business (2:46)
Bring me to the gates of hell
Cause there's a debt to pay
Bring me all your worthless leaders
Predators will soon be prey

They won't say it, but lies are a business too
It's time to play it, the game has come for me and you
Me and you

Start to walk out on deceit
The truth appears
Sometimes the road less traveled
Is paved with innocent tears

Their greed is never ending
The tide will soon be turning
It's beyond all comprehension
Foundations crumble, the sky is churning

They won't say it, but lies are a business too
It's time to play it, the game has come for me and you
Me and you

They won't say it, but lies are a business too
It's time to play it, the game has come...
They won't say it, but lies are a business too
It's time to play it, the game has come for...
For me and you
2. Tomorrow's No Concern (3:19)
I gave you yesterday
Tomorrow's no concern
I gave you yesterday
You can keep it
Because today is mine

Time is envious and running away
Now let's live it up while we may
Rather at once our moments devour
Let's all languish in the sound of power
Feel the rising tones
Taste the dust we kick up with friends
Louder it stings our ears
For now we don't hurt or fear

I gave you yesterday
I don't want it back

I gave you yesterday
Tomorrow's no concern
I gave you yesterday
You can take it
I don't need it back
I gave you yesterday
Tomorrow's no concern
I gave you yesterday
I don't need it
Because today is mine

All we've got is the now
I want to bring you along
So many years, so many stuck behind
But we can right what's wrong
And there is only one life
We can get what it's worth
We see who holds the knife
When it's put in our back
We must endure

I gave you yesterday
I don't want it back
I gave you yesterday
You can keep it
Because today is mine

I gave you yesterday
Tomorrow's no concern
I gave you yesterday
You can take it
I don't need it back
I gave you yesterday
Tomorrow's no concern
I gave you yesterday
I don't need it
Because today is mine

Grateful to be here
We know we could be much worse
The song will live on
So we let the world hear our verse
It's a curse

I gave you yesterday
Tomorrow's no concern
I gave you yesterday
You can take it
I don't need it back
I gave you yesterday
Tomorrow's no concern
I gave you yesterday
I don't need it
Because today is mine
3. I Am the Hurricane (3:26)
There is despair coming off ytour skin
I can smell it when you say my name
You love to gamble but you never win
You've lost it all, the end begins
Your life and death are on in the same
There's nothing left but all your sins

The wind is screaming
It's screaming your name

It sounds like fear
Your death rattle is all that remains
No one will shed a tear

I am a force of nature
Destroy your great design
I am the warning
You will never heed in time

Every whisper of doubt
I am the hurricane
Every breath of grief
I am the hurricane
Every statement of disbelief
I am the hurricane
I leave you all in my wake

Sign of the cross just before your demise
You're no believer, or have you forgot?
I'm the secret that you won't need to hide
It's too late to ask for help from God

The wind is screaming
It's screaming your name

It sounds like fear
Your death rattle is all that remains
No one will shed a tear

I am a force of nature
Destroy your great design
I am the warning
You will never heed in time

Every whisper of doubt
I am the hurricane
Every breath of grief
I am the hurricane
Every statement of disbelief
I am the hurricane
I leave you all in my wake
I am the hurricane

I am, I am the hurricane
I'm the hurricane
I am, I am the hurricane
I'm the hurricane

Every whisper of doubt
I am the hurricane
Every breath of grief
I am the hurricane
Every statement of disbelief
I am the hurricane
I leave you all in my wake
I am the hurricane
4. American Made (3:34)
Take a look as I walk tall
Stand up against you all
Attempts that I forestall

There's no breaking me

Try but I won't bend
Mock scorn and condescend
Hard work is never done
That's all I believe

No talk just action now
Push forward don't care how
Fight till the end it's how I'm made
American made

Tired as I sweat and bleed
I am a different breed
Steadfast in my beliefs
I know I'll always be

No talk just action now
Push forward don't care how
Fight till the end it's how I'm made
American made

Forged hard and won't back down
Live for this action now
Just try to test me I'll remain
American made

American made
American made
American made
American

No talk just action now
Push forward don't care how
Fight till the end it's how I'm made
American made

No talk just action now
Push forward don't care how
Fight till the end it's how I'm made
American made

Forged hard and won't back down
Live for this action now
Just try to test me I'll remain
American made

American made
American made
American made
American made
5. Roll over You (2:55)
It's not just a question for me
Now it's your time to walk away
I know that you are my enemy
There ain't a chance you'll last a day

You mean nothing to me
Fucking with me
Was your big mistake

You got no heart and we're not the same
You got so far but you never came
No heart, there's no one you can blame
You try to slow me down
But I roll over you

There are no friends that you'll find here
You shouldn't stay, you should go
With you there's just nothing to fear
There's something that you should know

You mean nothing to me
Fucking with me
Was your last mistake

You got no heart and we're not the same
You got so far but you never came
No heart, there's no one you can blame
You tried to slow me down
And I rolled over you

We fucking despise you
You got no heart and it shows
We fucking despise you
You're better off alone
We fucking despise you
You best be on your way
We fucking despise you
There's nothing more to say

Except I'm rolling on my own
I'm rolling my own

You got no heart and we're not the same
You got so far but you never came
No heart, there's no one you can blame
You never slowed me down
Cause I rolled over you
I rolled over you
Fuck you
6. I'm Ready (3:18)
Faced with mortality, questioning my sanity
Images that bring me my to knees
The weight of the world on top

Have I given all I've got
Just when I thought I'd seen it all

Death leaves a sorrow no one can heal
Love leaves a memory no one can steal

Maybe we're just here for the pain
Then I'm ready
Maybe we're just here for the pain
Then I'm ready, ready, ready, ready

Praise those who live their truth
Step forward where they break through
Forge a path with something real to prove

Death leaves a sorrow no one can heal
Love leaves a memory no one can steal

Maybe we're just here for the pain
Then I'm ready
Maybe we're just here for the pain
Then I'm ready, ready
Here for the pain

Maybe we're just here for the pain
Then I'm ready, ready (I'm ready)
Maybe we're just here for the pain
Then I'm ready, ready, ready, ready (I'm ready)
Maybe we're just here for the pain
Then I'm ready, ready (I'm ready)
Maybe we're just here for the pain
Then I'm ready, ready, ready
7. Running Mazes (2:57)
Running mazes, running mazes
Running mazes, running mazes
In my mind

Running mazes, running mazes
Running mazes, running mazes
I can't hide

Running mazes, running mazes, running mazes
In my mind
Running mazes, running mazes, running mazes
I can't hide

Death comes at us swiftly
I am still I feel his breath
Some will heed the call to him
Not today I still have fighting left

Not today, not today
Look into the eyes of death and say
Not today, not today
I've still got fighting left

Running mazes, running mazes, running mazes
In my mind
Running mazes, running mazes, running mazes
I can't hide

Life can leave us empty
Kick us down and push us out
When we fight back forcefully
There can be no shadow of a doubt

Not today, not today
Look into the eyes of death and say
Not today, not today
I've still got fighting left

Turn the corner in the maze
Faced with death what would you say
See the scythe dodge the blade
I must live another day
Through the maze I've kept my faith
Can't let you take this away
One more chance I'll have my say
I still have the fight in me

Running mazes, running mazes
Running mazes, running mazes
In my mind
Running mazes, running mazes
Running mazes, running mazes
I can't hide

Running mazes, running mazes, running mazes
In my mind
Running mazes, running mazes, running mazes
I won't hide
8. Mask (3:48)
With torn and bleeding smiles we move on
And mouth all different kinds of broken promises
Why should our days be spent in denial

While counting our faults and ripping our hearts out

Let them only see us, while we wear the mask that hides
Never let them know us, as the tortured soul inside
Feel the hate beneath our feet before the longest mile
Say the words we can't forget, or chose to say otherwise

We wear the mask

The face you see is not our own
It hides our tears and shades our eyes
The heart you touched has since grown cold
We wear the mask that grins and lies

Behind our doors the time cannot be whisked away
Crashing and burning, leaving hints of darkness
Deep within their withered faces, lines are sunken in
We say we're fine behind the mask
We say we're fine, why do you ask

We wear the mask

The face you see is not our own
It hides our tears and shades our eyes
The heart you touched has since grown cold
We wear the mask that grins and lies
The face you see is not our own
It hides our tears and shades our eyes
The heart you touched has since grown cold
We wear the mask that grins and lies

Hear the words they speak and they don't hear the call
Looking forward nothing more to feel at all
Until the day they wake and see the damage caused
The longest mile is the step you never take at all

We wear the mask
We wear the mask
We wear the mask
We wear the mask

The face you see is not our own
It hides our tears and shades our eyes
The heart you touched has since grown cold
We wear the mask that grins and lies
The face you see is not our own
It hides our tears and shades our eyes
The heart you touched has since grown cold
We wear the mask that grins and lies
9. Become the Storm (4:10)
The rain is nothing to fear
When you become the storm

Suffering is to speak the truth and I'm not willing to hear
Working harder than before with nothing to show but tears
With only time, its hands to help, it's the hurt that we must let go
Pardoned, forgiven for their sins and what they put us through

The rain is nothing to fear
When you become the storm

We are not here to suffer
But what we get through makes us tougher
We are not here to suffer
But what we get through makes us tougher
Oh!

Suffer all the innocent who say that they don't belong
Can't find the strength that they deserve, give them the ones who do not wrong
I know we weren't mean for love, time to break down every single door
And it keeps us trapped and torn
I know we are more than this, no more time to reminisce, it's war
And it's right outside our doors

The rain is nothing to fear
When you become the storm

We are not here to suffer
But what we get through makes us tougher
We are not here to suffer
But what we get through makes us tougher

Sometimes we suffer
The time we get tougher
Sometimes we suffer
Sometimes we get tougher

We are not here to suffer
But what we get through makes us tougher
We are not here to suffer
But what we get through makes us tougher
We are not here to suffer
But what we get through makes us tougher
(Become the storm)
We are not here to suffer
But what we get through makes us tougher
Become the storm!
10. The Hardest Way (3:48)
You want a perfect ending
It's so hard to attain
And we've all got to learn

Something the hardest way
The answers are not always there
The stories are not always clear

Not all of us give
Not all of us take
Not all will truly live
Or be there when our sights regained

Step forward into the blinding light
If you dare look back it's your last time
We've all learned something
Step forward into the blinding light
If you dare look back it's your last time
It's your last time

We've all learned something
The hard way
The hardest way
We've all learned something
The hard way
The hardest way

This is about not knowing
And always having to change
Making the best of moments
That will test our strength
Without knowing what happens next
With courage taking the first step

Not all of us hate
Not all of us love
Not all will live to see
Just what our hardest days become

Step forward into the blinding fight
If you dare look back it's your last time
We've all learned something
Step forward into the blinding light
If you dare look back it's your last time
It's your last time

We've all learned something
The hard way
The hardest way
We've all learned something
The hard way
The hardest way

The time is here
Now we all must learn

The lessons learned
The scars we earned
Are not always all the ones we chose to
The bridges burned
The pages turned
They're not always the ones that we learn from

We've all learned something
The hard way
The hardest way
We've all learned something
The hard way
The hardest way
11. Dead Hearts (Love Thy Enemy) (3:53)
You try to destroy my truth
While comforted by a lie
Before now nothing was done

One too many times
I'm going to a place
I hope you never find
Dead hearts can't be broken
But I'm sure you'll try

And again my love runs red
Touch inside there's nothing left

We all hear what they say
What they say
Heavy has no weight
Like words filled with hate
We all hear what they say
What they say
As hard as it can be
Love thy enemy

You try to deny your past
While living in that time
Your true colors show themselves
I see what you imply
My hands are bound again
But is it you that's tied
Dead hearts can't be broken
But I'm sure you'll try
Sure you'll try

We all hear what they say
What they say
Heavy has no weight
Like words filled with hate
We all hear what they say
What they say
As hard as it can be
Love thy enemy

I am redeemer with lifeless eyes
A guardian angel you've come to despise
I am the words of hurt said with such haste
I am the violence you silently face

We all hear what they say
What they say
Heavy has no weight
Like words filled with hate
We all hear what they say
What they say
Heavy has no weight
Like words filled with hate
We all hear what they say
What they say
As hard as it can be
Love thy enemy
12. For the Love of Metal (3:28)
I once was under the blade
I was once the last in line
I was the victim of changes

You can't stop rock n' roll, it is my life
This is my painkiller
My obsession runs deep
For the love of all things loud
United worldwide fills me with pride

I do it for the love
I release my hate
Set my soul ablaze

For the love of metal
For the love of metal (metal)

As long as I can remember
It's been there for me
I run through the hills
And over the mountain for victory
I've been south of heaven
I don't wanna burn in hell
I've stood strong throughout the years
Live to tell I was born to raise hell

I do it for the love
I release my hate
Set our souls ablaze
We do it for the love
We release our hate
When we take the stage

For the love of metal
For the love of metal (metal)

I do it for the love of metal
There's no other way
I do it for the love of metal
This is my escape

I do it for the love
I release my hate
I feel its strength...
Unleash the metal!

We are all fucking metal!

I do it for the love of metal
There's no other way
I do it for the love of metal
It gives me strength
