1. Bring 'Em Down (3:39)
Superficial views of what my life's supposed to be
Abnorm is norm, we adopt a fractured reality
Shattered image, human frailty is wide awake
Polished gems, a golden hue of idols that we make

The censorship is real, but we're all afraid to look
And put our trust in a man, ignoring the lives he took
The bets are 5 to 1, 1 and 5 to mark the damage we'll make
Slavery prevails, the zombies walking tall
A game of give and take

Give and take!
Bring 'em down!
Bring 'em down!

Misled, misunderstood, misinformed!
Red, white and blue…and green
The only colors that we see

Did you stand in line? Did you partake in atrocity?
Did you replace logic and reason for a misplaced reality?

Bring 'em down!
Bring 'em down!
2. Concept of the Other (3:54)
Prejudicial blinds, become the dark veil of truth
A guilty eye for an eye, a bloody tooth for tooth
Call attention to the differences in their belief
Selling God with different names, the educated thief

We've clearly drawn the line
Oh who to justify to hate
Reasoning by law and love
The blindfolded one has sealed their fate

They seem to think that we serve the same God
All rolling out their mats or sealed in their pods
If only I've seen Christ in the way some live
The more we push and take, the more we make them give

We've clearly drawn the line
Oh who to justify to hate
Reasoning by law and love
The blindfolded one has sealed their fate
Sealed their fate!

And though we pretend and come off so concerned
The misread parables incentive what we've learned
The price of human life, we somehow think we've earned

We've clearly drawn the line
Oh who to justify to hate
Reasoning by law and love
The blindfolded one has sealed our fate

Sealed our fate
Sealed our fate
Sealed your fate
Sealed your fate
3. Center of It All (3:42)
You crave it all, to be the noticed one
What's really in your head when the day is done?
Are you really that self-absorbed you cannot see?
Your thought process is your centricity

You really are the center of it all
The other names you can't recall
You really are the center of it all
The ditch is dug, waiting for your fall

You've got nerve to proclaim the truth
Poisonous lies infection surround
Double minded is what you are
Duplicitous, it has taken you far

(x2) You really are the center of it all
The other names you can't recall
You really are the center of it all
The ditch is dug, waiting for your fall

I look at you and see myself, image of what I used to be
Don't get me wrong I'm not your judge, just calling out what I see
If you heard half your BS, you might understand what I mean
The limpid, the crimped, the crawl to a slow insanity

You really are the center of it all
The other names you can't recall
You really are the center of it all
The ditch is dug, waiting for your fall
4. The Black Hand (3:52)
Gasping for air, heart rate rises
Impending doom awaits
No danger in sight, only feel fear
Neurosis waits for you to take the bait

And when it comes in day or night
Your senses numbing rob you of sight

A sense of calm it brings you down
Chemical reaction ensues
Nerve endings climbing, pupils dilating
De-realization propels the cues

And when it comes in day or night
Your senses numbing rob you of sight
Fire and ice lost in a haze
The hand gripping you, the mind in a maze

Swiftly moving like a hurricane
You'll feel the pulsing through your veins
Fight or flight ignites, dark energy
Sense and madness find no synergy

(x2) And when it comes in day or night
Your senses numbing rob you of sight
Fire and ice lost in a haze
The hand gripping you, the mind in a maze
5. Epilogue (4:01)
I've created my crucifixion, felt the affixation
Circled my own stage, incited the crowd's rage
Called out all my own crimes, defenses sublime
I struck the gavel down hard, followed the path of the bard

The passers-by begin to look
The last move took out my rook
The game played with their advantage
The castle ran by crooks
Their pointing fingers seek out my face
In hopes reveal my disgrace
I won't beg for justice or mercy
Won't play the part adversely

(x4) My epilogue is written
But words continue to change
My epilogue is written
In the end no one to blame

Let the punishment fit the deed
At last I'll concede
Weary of the sentence
The scales balancing
My actions are justified
See so ramified
Truth be known and revealed
Official record unsealed

(x4) My epilogue is written
But words continue to change
My epilogue is written
In the end no one to blame
6. Listen Closely (3:28)
There's something in the words being said
Between the blurry lines
The fury and worry inside your head
Ignore all the posted warning signs

Picture this, a perfect world inside
The firmament is reflecting all
Tightly woven shroud engulf the mind
The silent film that's showing your fall

You've been suckered, you believe it all
A victim of the selling game!
There is hope, just believe The Truth
It's out there waiting, waiting for you…

It's not impossible, it's not worse than that!
An answer lies in wait, just see!
It won't come easy, friend that much is fact
Seek and you'll find, the righteous path will be…
7. The Subversive Kind (4:14)
Insurrection, a call to the unrest
The revolt puts courage to the test
Retake, repossess powers that be
The harmless dove subdues so subtly

But I'm not the subversive kind
I'll give you products of a disturbed mind
But I'm not the subversive kind
Be careful of what is hidden behind

Lock me up in a cell or padded room
A carriage ride to the impending doom
Circle is broken but will soon mend
A stress test to see how far you'll bend
You'll see them rise, numbers like the sand
While the world runs for a shelter less land

But I'm not the subversive kind
I'll give you products of a disturbed mind
But I'm not the subversive kind
Be careful of what is hidden behind

Pick the locks with a pocketful of keys
No use for reason is the decree
Proprietary on the contrary
Propaganda is all you see
When it comes, no use to resist
The result being added to the list

But I'm not the subversive kind
I'll give you products of a disturbed mind
But I'm not the subversive kind
Be careful of what is hidden behind
8. The Fold (4:30)
Wait! There's something not right here
It creeps in like nightmares
And pumps me full of fear
Why? Should this be happening
Disarm me by frightening
It's all too alarming

I won't give up
Won't take the bait!
I'll see it through, I'll run the course
It's what's at stake!
Too easy to fold
Easy to give in!
I’ll not let them control me
Keep fighting for the win!

Lies! They all surround me
In fälschen commodity
In hopes of disposing
I won't let faith unravel
Crushing down the gavel
Awaiting arrival

I won't give up
Won't take the bait!
I'll see it through, I'll run the course
It's what's at stake!
Too easy to fold
Easy to give in!
I’ll not let them control me
Keep fighting for the win!

(x4) I won't fold!

I won't give up
Won't take the bait!
I'll see it through, I'll run the course
It's what's at stake!
Too easy to fold
Easy to give in!
I’ll not let them control me
Keep fighting for the win!

(x2) I won't fold!
