Track Name: Your Downfall
I don’t wanna witness your downfall
But you’re throwing it all away
Your world is coming down
And you’re the one to blame

I just can’t understand

Time for you to face yourself
To think it over and make a change
You’ve got to turn it all around

Full speed ahead
To better days
Full speed ahead
To better ways

------------------------------------

This one’s about people close to you, those who should rethink their life and the direction it’s going. Downhill fast. Talk to them. Hopefully they see the light soon, close off that period in their lives and move forward. To better days.
Track Name: I'll Be Fine
You’ve all been there before
Told them a thousand times
They just can’t understand
What it means to you

I’ll be fine

THIS IS MY WORLD, MY LIFE
I’LL BE FINE
THIS IS MY WAY, MY DRIVE
I’LL BE FINE

They just don’t wanna see
Why you’re into this
Cause they’ll never share
What makes it worth living for

You don’t have to worry
ABOUT ME
I’m not wasting time
NOT WASTING TIME

I don’t care what you think
I don’t care what you say
I don’t care what you’ll do
I’ll be fine

---------------------------------------

You all know those moments, explaining people why you’re into hardcore, what it means to you. Why you put some many hours into your band, your zine, your label or whatever, without getting paid a lot. Sometimes they don’t care, sometimes they just don’t understand. Doesn’t matter, we’ll be fine. We love this, it’s our life.
Track Name: Worlds Apart
You and I, we share the same blood
Yet we’re so far apart
These walls, I can’t break em down
And I probably never will

WORLDS APART

You keep pushing me away
But I’ll keep on trying
Things will never change
You just don’t understand

-----------------------------------------

Sharing blood with someone doesn’t mean you’re sharing ideals/opinions as well. Someone can be really close to you in a way, but at the same time there’s a big distance. Two totally different worlds, so close yet so far.
Track Name: Controlled
Just look around and tell me what you see
People in fear, too afraid to live their lives
They keep on feeding you all these lies
Until you accept them as the truth

WE’RE ALL CONTROLLED
CONTROLLED BY FEAR
WE’RE ALL CONTROLLED
CONTROLLED BY LIES

They’ll try to break down your spirit and your will
For your leaders, you’ll walk in line
You’re just a number, that’s all you are
Corrupt religions, control your mind

WE’VE – GOT – TO – BREAK – OUT

We’ve got to break out
We’ve got to leave it all
We’ve got to break out
It’s out of control

-----------------------------------------------

The government, police, religion, the media etc, we’re all controlled one way or another. Feeding us fear through the media, walking in line. We’re just numbers, pawns in a bigger game. Use your head, look around, think about it.
Track Name: Overcome
When everybody tries to bring you down
You just keep your head up
Believe in yourself and what you stand for
You’ll find your way out

I’LL OVERCOME
Everything in my way
I’LL OVERCOME
Anything holding me down

When it all gets too much
And the walls are closing in
Just stay true to yourself
And remember
Better times are ahead

NO MORE

------------------------------------

We all have problems, big or small. Just remember there’s light at the end of the tunnel. There’s always a way out, no matter what. Never give up, keep believing in yourself.
Track Name: Use Your Head
Sometimes I just can’t
Take it anymore
In this iron age
Nobody seems to think

They just don’t seem to care
And it’s driving me insane
Feels like I’m wasting my time
And it’s driving me insane

It’s all been said
So many times before
But we can’t give up
It’s time for a change

THINK BEFORE YOU ACT
YOU GOTTA USE YOUR HEAD

--------------------------------------------

People are getting dumber by the day it seems. Stuff gets dumbed down because otherwise people can’t understand. Our attention span gets less and less. People don’t want to read anymore. Everything has to be fast, flashy, short. Hell, kids don’t even seem to care about the lyrics, the message in hardcore anymore. If you’re reading this you’re not of them. Thanks.
Track Name: Everyday
From the day we are born
Until the day we die
We keep on learning every day

Making mistakes
While trying to break free
We’ve got to stand on our own

EVERYDAY
WE STILL LEARN

Falling down
And getting up again
Learning from every mistake

Sometimes it will be hard
But in the end
We’re all here to learn

----------------------------------------

We all make mistakes. Again and again, every day. We just have to learn from them. Learning from your mistakes, that’s life right there.
Track Name: Let It Rain
My world is coming down
Everything fades to black
Locked up in a train of thought
There’s no end in sight

LET IT RAIN

Can’t see where I’m going
Will this ever end?
Trying to reach out
But darkness overcomes

I NEED TO GET OUT

Make it stop, let it rain Let it all go away

------------------------------------------------

Know that feeling, when everything seems to go wrong, when the walls are closing in? When you try to get over it, to work it out, but you fail again and again. This song’s about that feeling, when you just want everything to go away. Rain symbolizes that for me. Just remember, there will be sunshine in the end.
Track Name: Reflections
Today I’m looking back
Looking back at my past
The choices that I made
The things I did

WE’RE ALL SEARCHING
Searching for ourselves
WE’RE ALL CHANGING
You can’t hold it back

I can’t look ahead
Taking life as it comes
I hope I’ll stay on track
Only Time can tell

We’ve got to find out
We’ve got to look inside
We’ve got to know who we are

-----------------------------------------------

I’m pretty young, but I look back at my life (so far) a lot. I try to learn from the things I did in the past. Things I did right, things I did wrong. I’m constantly searching, trying to find out who I am.
Track Name: Wake Up
I can’t close my eyes
Pretend nothing’s wrong
The world we live in
It’s all coming down

WE GOTTA WAKE UP
WE GOTTA TRY
WE GOTTA WAKE UP
WE GOTTA FIGHT

All the talk in the world
It doesn’t change a thing
Just some words passing by
We’ve crossed the line

Ignorance’s rising
And we don’t seem to care at all

------------------------------------------

The world’s asleep, people just don’t care anymore. Wake up.
Track Name: Time
I keep running
To stay ahead
I can’t beat time
I’ll end up behind

PRESSURE RELEASE

People rush
Through their lives
Trying so hard
To keep up the pace

We need a pressure release

But time keeps ticking

TIME WONT GET ME DOWN

Time will not
Get the best of me
I will not bend
I will not break

-----------------------------------------

The last song on the album I wrote lyrics for. I finished this the day before we entered the studio. Not hard to guess where the inspiration came from, right? Anyway, life these days is rushed. People are always busy, there’s never enough time. Pretty funny if you consider we invented ‘time’ ourselves.
Track Name: No Balance
Everyday when I read the news
I wonder where it all went wrong
When did we draw these lines

Why did we divide this world
The gap between the rich and poor
Is growing everyday

BALANCE’S LOST
Can we turn the tide?
BALANCE’S LOST
It all went wrong

You think we should have learned
Of all these years that have passed
But it’s getting worse

We all need to wake up
And rebuild it all again
Cause the end is near

No balance in this world
Where did it all go wrong?
No balance in this world
Can we turn the tide?

----------------------------------------------

While reading the paper, or watching the news, I often wonder what the hell happened. The world’s going down fast. If there ever was any balance, it’s completely gone these days. I wonder if we’re ever capable to turn the tide. I know that’s not a really positive thing to think, but I can’t help it.
