1. Join the Ranks
With your eyes
Glazed and half-smiled.
Explain to me the details
Of your God-given right

You point your finger
In my face but
You can't remember what
You did last night.

It's all fun and games 'til
You try to justify,
It's all well and done 'til
You question the choices in your life.

Join all the millions
Of victims who prescribe
To this mediocre life.
And all these years
Have been lost looking for something
That you'll never find.

It's all fun and games 'til
You try to justify,
It's all well and done 'til
You question the choices in your life.
2. Gethsemane
It was the perfect night.
Then you had to go and ruin it with a kiss, now
I'm trapped inside here.
The innocence we held once
So carelessly
Has been suffocated in this breathless moment.
Believe in me and I will believe in you.
You're asking of me everything.
So I'll give it all to you.
With arms raised to the stars begging them to listen.
With legs littered with scars cut from these olive branches.
Now, point of return now crossed.
And our hands left shaking.
Tonight we give in to tempation.
Believe in me and I will believe in you.
You're asking of me everything.
So I'll give it all to you.
Someone stop my mind from screaming.
It's so loud I can't hear myself think.
Life, Death, Religion, Survival.
It makes no sense.
Don't try to tell me that I'm a coincidence.
Believe in me and I will believe in you.
You're asking of me everything.
So I'll give it all to you.
If I never have you, then I can never lose you.
Now, everything here is a lie.
Where is the truth?
Where is the fucking truth?
3. Generation Lost
Getting trampled under boots of progress.
Ignore the pleading of the nameless faces.
Now with our backs against the wall.
How long till we fall?

Do away with all the underprivileged.
Their demographic doesn't fit your image.
Turn your blind eye when duty calls.
How long till we fall?

(In With The New)
This is something that you can't ignore.
(In With The New)
A simple thing worth fighting for.
(In With The New)
cause now they're tearing down our doors.
So she screams out the window,
"I've had it up to here".
So sick and tired of wondering
Where I'll be next year...

Caring less about the homeless millions.
All the petty problems that go with them.
Reap the profit that reaps their lives and
Tell me that it's fine.

Throw them out and call it relocation.
Lower-income-housing quick solution.
A Generation lost.

(In With The New)
This is something that you can't ignore.
(In With The New)
A simple thing worth fighting for.
(In With The New)
cause now they're tearing down our doors.
So she screams out the window,
"I've had it up to here".
So sick and tired of wondering
Where I'll be next year...

Now in the whirlwind of my life.
Is where you presently reside.
Can I pretend you don't exist.
Maybe just for ten more minutes?
My hearts been broken into two
and rusted from years of disuse.
So will you place upon it your hands,
Will you help it beat again?
(x2)

It seems the whole world's turned on me
(Bound and gagged) in the land of the free.
Let's talk this over, this game is over.
In with the new, out with the old.
Hearts of the world have grown so cold.
This game is over, let's talk this over.
