Bursting at the seams Always the enemy And I will escape out this place by any means I'm keen to do the best I can Its a façade, embedded issues deep within the system Forced awake the beast that rests. Attacks at random, so place your bets Place your bets Keen to be the best I can So I mask all emotions, I am heartless like the tin man I can’t be alone in here Destructive thoughts they run me Got to delete this fear Or delete everything all at once I'm gonna burn this palace down Dethrone the leader Destroy the crown I'm gonna burn this palace down Dethrone the leader Destroy the crown Fought through the trenches hard just to get here Battle further just to survive Can’t keep afloat when the future is not clear It reminds me just how it feels to be alive I can’t be alone in here Destructive thoughts they run me Got to delete this fear Or delete everything all at once I'm gonna burn this palace down Dethrone the leader Destroy the crown I'm gonna burn this palace down Dethrone the leader Destroy the crown Fought through the trenches hard just to get here Gotta keep afloat when the future is not clear Destroy the crown

Not taking the same old similes Oh please motherfucker no time for these (Do not applaud, the story's unraveling We are never settling were always battling) This is my curse, but it's not the worst My curse, now it sounds perverse (But we mean every lyric With a full guarantee that they are the sickest) No need for your god as a witness Blistering from the sight of forgiveness (This is none of your business See now this is how we exist) Chatting about how they remember the day There's not enough time and how we fade away (But that's bullshit) We are here to stay We are here to stay Descending down into the madness (Get back can you hear the change Step back or you face the rage) Repelled like matching poles of magnets Still falling down (Still falling) Round two starts now it has been deemed Still bringing bars like you can't believe (Shaking the earth even on the verse Because we are here to make the sound first) We're on top of this, you can't stop this shit What we need's another hypothesis (I'm quite confident of the consequence because) (We will not fail) (We will not fail) Prevailing the path we've always intended No changing no alternative ending No fucking pretending Roll the credits now coz this scene is over Descending down into the madness (Get back can you hear the change Step back or you face the rage) Repelled like matching poles of magnets Still falling down (Still falling) Descending down into the madness Repelled like matching poles of magnets Get back can you hear the change Step back or you face the rage Step back or you face the rage Get back can you hear the change Coz we will not fail We will not fail

Half Empty 04:10
Reflecting back to the future we see in our eyes But the sun eclipsed, black soaks the skies I trusted you when you said you'd grow old with me I had to tear you out my soul is half empty Wasted many a night, With no vision I'm just staring up Thinking back to the past I wondered if I cared enough There were holes in the deck before we cast off The cocktail was shaken and will explode like a Molotov The warning signs are everywhere And with time they only worsened I suppose I'll never know if these actions were on purpose But don't think it was an impact when in fact you have not scratched the surface Trust when I say I've seen the darkness, I've lived there reveal our deepest secrets, let's compare There are marks that you can't see And some that are blind to me Hand me a shovel I'll dig myself out The painted smile on my face to cover what I've felt It's a parasite that lurks in me I've got to get it out I trusted you when you said you'd grow old with me I had to tear you out and now I'm standing half empty (Though the despair on my face is cracking) I trusted you when you said you'd grow old with me (Though the despair on my face is cracking) I had to tear you out and now I'm standing half empty Can you hear the silence, is it comfortable where the wise live? Will you ever repeat the words of "yes I'm fine?" No repeats this time, I'm hitting back at the remedy temporarily, An elegantly named identity for everything that's said, And the words that we won't keep you tried hard to crack this head, and you want empathy? I'm constantly doubting, the worst critic of my own design. And I decline the right to be silent or just abide Hold tight, because I'm packed full of surprises But the only ones that matter are the ones that survive this Wasted many a night, With no vision I'm just staring up Thinking back to the past I wondered if I cared enough I trusted you when you said you'd grow old with me I had to tear you out and now I'm standing half empty I trusted you when you said you'd grow old with me I had to tear you out and now I'm standing half empty (I've got to get it out) I trusted you when you said you'd grow old with me (Deepest secrets) I had to tear you out and now I'm standing half empty (Blind me) I trusted you when you said you'd grow old with me (Smile on my face to cover what I've felt) I had to tear you out and now I'm standing half empty (I've got to get it out) Can you hear the silence, is it comfortable where the wise live? Will you ever repeat the words of "yes I'm fine?"

Nasty! Not even shipman could write it this sick This is the measuring stick, A league of thieves and cheats This rhyme is now a PG Certified as oh please Feel free to disagree But this burnt to the 3rd degree One day now you will witness You think that you are displaced? So filled with hate and sickness You were a massive mistake Smash in the face It's gone too far And I will get you back My blood vessels burst As I scream and curse What have we become What have we all done This is my backlash My blood vessels burst As I scream and curse I will get you back This is my backlash Take your halo and smash it to the ground Let the tears fall down What you felt for me Cut the throat it bleeds We all fall down like What you felt for me Cut the throat it bleeds We all fall down like My blood vessels burst As I scream and curse What have we become What have we all done This is my backlash My blood vessels burst As I scream and curse I will get you back After all you have done This is my backlash I will get you back Get you back Get you back And you can't hide All your wasted pride Now's the time Are you really alive? (And you can't hide) And you can't hide All your wasted pride Now's the time Are you really alive? Stare up at the picture on the shelf Let the tears fall down You can't hide Your wasted pride Now's the time And you can't run You can't hide Your wasted pride Now's the time Are you really alive? Cut the throat it bleeds Cut the throat it bleeds Cut the throat it bleeds My blood vessels burst As I scream and curse What have we become What have we all done This is my backlash My blood vessels burst As I scream and curse I will get you back After all you have done This is my backlash

Pack Animals 02:55
We run ravenous, like animals of a pack And when one falls we clench our fists tight and fight back Tear the system up Tear it up Tear the system up Now fucking explode Tear the system up Tear it up Tear the system up We’re here to make some noise! And not compete in a fashion show Give less shits about your looks and let the passion flow But Don't you know? We're here to kick the riot off The plane has hit the sky But the pilots lost the fucking plot And can't be stopped Start work so early But this evenings just begun So we’ll roll in yawning in the morning Right now we must slam back shot After shot after shot after shot And don’t regret a thing Until you wake up And I am on Cloud 9 But just like Icarus, I’ll fall from this height to my own demise Watch me fall from the sky We run ravenous, like animals of a pack And when one falls we clench our fists tight and fight back Start work so early But this evenings just begun So we’ll roll in yawning in the morning Right now we must slam back shot After shot after shot after shot And don’t regret a thing Until you wake up Til you wake up Don't regret a thing Until you wake up Until you wake up Don't regret a thing Until you wake up And I am on Cloud 9 We run ravenous, like animals of a pack And when one falls we clench our fists tight and fight back Now fucking explode Tear the system up Tear it up Tear the system up We're here to make some noise We run ravenous, like animals of a pack And when one falls we clench our fists tight and fight back We run ravenous, like animals of a pack And when one falls we clench our fists tight and fight back

Paralysed 04:20
Don't hold back These nightmares they paralyse me And I can barely scream Out loud, out proud, don't know how I got here Really don't care how I have to get out I’ll snap every padlock I’ll Snap every chain Smash down these barriers Need to get away Falling deeper and deeper into the vicinity of weaker Can't open these bleach burnt eyes Can't watch but it is no surprise I'm paralysed Even though it’s an open space My heart is racing at a lightning pace Why would you try to deny me? Even though it’s an open space My heart is racing at a lightning pace Why would you try to deny me? We won’t know how deep until the tide rises We won’t admit defeat without their compromises It spreads and infects like the norovirus Inject with violence, but before you unleash just breathe Breathe Breathe Relax and listen This is your only given Confusing my vision With superstition Hold up, are you kidding? The chapters write themselves They hurt can no one help Inflamed by nothing else I am an empty shell But breathe Breathe Relax and listen This is your only given Confusing my vision With superstition Hold up, are you kidding? The chapters write themselves They hurt can no one help Inflamed by nothing else I am an empty shell Even though it’s an open space My heart is racing at a lightning pace Why would you try to deny me? Even though it’s an open space My heart is racing at a lightning pace Why would you try to deny me? I’m sinking Sinking, I’m falling Coming up for air Coming up for air Coming up for air Coming up for air There's too many problems And no resolutions They promised us answers Full of phony conclusions There's so many problems And not enough solutions They lied to our fathers And profit from the disasters Even though it’s an open space My heart is racing at a lightning pace Why would you try to deny me? Even though it’s an open space My heart is racing at a lightning pace Why would you try to deny me? There's too many problems And no resolutions They promised us answers Full of phony conclusions There's so many problems And not enough solutions They lied to our fathers And profit from the disasters

Echoes of silence, they penetrate these streets How does it feel to have the whole world at your feet? Abandoned by a system, so derelict and fearsome I can't see the truth, can you see the truth The explosion of stars builds up our feelings and scars Self contained in jars Come on, let's make this moment ours Sirens sound, bypass Seen through a spyglass Words but not my last Not forgotten but past Even angels they break hearts Don't pretend you’re not a victim Take this right back to the start Take me right back to the beginning Even angels they break hearts Don't pretend your not a victim Take this right back to the start Take me right back to the beginning Believe what you want to read in the magazines You can see what you want to see, in your own dreams Scream what you want to scream when you want scream Conceive the information on your TV screen Hear the sounds on the radio that will cause you to bleed The police on the street try to justify your needs But I will just carry on being me Echoes of silence, they still penetrate these streets How does it feel to have the whole world at your feet? Abandoned by a system, so derelict and fearsome I can't see the truth, can you see the truth Feel explosions of stars brings up our feelings and scars Self contained in jars Come on, let's make this moment ours Sirens sound, bypass Seen through a spyglass Words but not my last Not forgotten but past (And even angels break hearts) Don't pretend you’re not a victim Take this right back to the start Take me right back to the beginning Even angels they break hearts Don't pretend your not a victim Take this right back to the start Take me right back to the beginning

Disconnect 03:28
Privacy is dead We're being watched from overhead Puppets in a show, fight like seagull's over scraps of bread See the dead eyes as its monitors the CCTV Raise that chin up man there's a world out there to see Instead we stare down at palm sized screens its all we need Dictated who to be, it's just your destiny But this destiny is documented The doctor's recommended something to put us down and to be dependent on Like a ball I'm bouncing off the wall again Taught to repent, fight the corner, keep your innocence. I've lost the will again Now it's time to execute the order, this time don't pretend Did you hear me stutter? Spread the facts, stop tracking us, this ain't big brother Stop feeding the machine it's disgusting I feel so unclean, it's the obscenity of everything Disconnect Disconnect me from the rest of this Won't accept This dramas forced upon me Disconnect Disconnect me, disconnect me Won't embrace There's been an error connecting to society Make the people fight themselves It's a clever move Bite that hand that feeds The meals have no truth Hate the reason, fear the proof Ignite the planned walls that separate the youth Where's the intelligence Chow to any relevance No plan of action to put it into development. Just settling a score Throw the board to the floor Start a few wars A round of applause For what will never be a worthy cause Disconnect Disconnect me from the rest of this Won't accept This dramas forced upon me Disconnect Disconnect me, disconnect me Won't embrace There's been an error connecting to society The white heads are forming there on top of this wave I misbehave when it's the prerogative installed inside the brain Yet we complain about the stories seen The direction pushed on us from the media I still detest, the very situation I don't need your fucking validation I can't just stand complacent This device with catch your dreams and destroy them Feel the lacerations Burning, burning Disconnect Disconnect me from the rest of this Won't accept This dramas forced upon me Disconnect Disconnect me, disconnect me Won't embrace Disconnect Disconnect me from the rest of this Won't accept This dramas forced upon me Disconnect Disconnect me, disconnect me Won't embrace There's been an error connecting to society

Firepower 03:35
Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate! I am the thorn in your side Today I self destruct Destroy everything in my sight It's time to start again (Start again) Been here now for far too long Beginning to find the cracks in the surface Now it's time to release me from this cage It's time to pull me out of your side It's time to pull me out of your side It's time to pull me out of your side It's time to pull me out of your side You give it gun fingers, Well I'm a gunslinger! You give it gun fingers, Well I'm a gunslinger! And slingers like me just don't have time for the shit you're giving Give me the middle finger Express the hate your feeling Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate! The sun now it burns so bright So brightly illuminates the sky We could stand here and stare all day Or sit back and let them take this away And I am the gun in your hand And I am that thought in your head And I have become your hate For when you have seen red! You give it gun fingers Well I'm a gunslinger! And slingers like me just don't have time for the shit you're giving Give me the middle finger express the hate your feeling Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate! (Go!) You give it gun fingers Well I'm a gunslinger! And slingers like me just don't have time for the shit you're giving Give me the middle finger express the hate your feeling Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate, act up, act up! Let's retaliate!

Airstrike 03:18
We bring an airstrike to a knife fight, yeah Bring an airstrike That's right, that's right We bring an airstrike to a knife fight, yeah Bring an airstrike A motherfucking airstrike Watch as we set it off Forever hear the sound as it echoes on There is nothing you can do Not one word that you can say We've got nothing to lose So let them drop away We bring an airstrike to a knife fight, yeah We bring an airstrike That's right, that's right We bring an airstrike to a knife fight, yeah We bring an airstrike A motherfucking Airstrike There is nothing you can do Not one word that you can say We've got nothing to lose So let them drop away Watch as we set it off Forever hear the sound as it echoes on Watch as we set it off Watch as the bombs drop watch as they drop We bring an airstrike! We bring an airstrike! We bring an airstrike! That's right, that's right We bring an airstrike A motherfucking airstrike There is nothing you can do Not one word that you can say We've got nothing to lose So let them drop away
