Track Name: Red Pill (instrumental)
instrumental
Track Name: Know Thy Enemy
Every form of media, every word we read
Every bit of information, made only to mislead
Conditioned by the faceless, to fear a faceless enemy
Forced to think in red and blue but the color is always green

Know thy enemy

The strings are pulled and manipulated, hidden behind the scenes,
Manufacturing consent, but the masters are all unseen
A curtain hides the gears that turn inside the media machine
Everything is compromised, and no one’s hands are clean

Every we word we read
(Thy Enemy)
Touched by hands unclean
(Thy Enemy)
Question everything
(Thy Enemy)
Know thy enemy
(Thy Enemy)
Track Name: Something New
Today is primed for revolution; we’ve known it all along
We can feel it in the air we breathe, and taste it on our tongues
It’s not a fight that we’ll win with our fists, or win by dropping bombs
It’s a change of our collective minds that will be our coup d’état

The wind is blowing in our direction, and it’s bringing with it something new
(Something new)
We see the world in a new light, ‘cause we’re ready now for something new
(Something new)
Our inspiration will be our discontent, and will be our call for something new
(Something new)
The wind is blowing in our direction, and it’s bringing with it something new

The time has never been so right, as it is right now
Never fit into their cookie-cutter life, into their perfect mold
We share a higher consciousness, and we need more room to grow
We’ll never fall in line,
and we’ll never do what we’re told
Track Name: Better Half
Curse these eyes
And curse this head
Curse this tongue
And curse every word we’ve said

We’ve cut ourselves in two and we punish our better half
But its only when we work together, that we can mend the past

Curse these hands
We’ve made a mess
Let’s lift this blindfold
our division is are punishment

We’ve cut ourselves in two, and we punish our better half
But its only when we work together, that we can mend the past
We’ve been divided, but we’re still not beyond amends
It’s only when were re-united, that both concerns can advance

(Reunite)
My cause is the same as yours, and yours is the same as mine
(Reunite)
But it’s only when we work together, that we can both reunite
(Reunite)

Our concerns can advance
Better half
Track Name: Another Way
Bound by the dollar
Bound by the dime
Bound by the hourglass
And bound to time

Prisoners to gender
Prisoners to skin
We’re prisoners to our bodies
and prisoners to religion
To our religion
Religion

Controlled from 9 to 5
And in between
Controlled by corporations
Controlled by greed

Confined by ‘nation’
Confined by flag
Confined by language
And confined by lines on a map
by lines on a map
On a map

Won’t say
Won’t say
Won’t say the words that you want me to say

Won’t see
Won’t see
Won’t see the lines that they want me to see

We’ll find another way
We’ll find another way
(Your words mean nothing to me)
We’ll find another way
(Your lines means nothing to me)
Another way

Don’t think.
Blue pill.
For a piece of cloth you go to war and kill.

Don’t act
Don’t speak
Just think the thoughts that they want you to think

We’ll find another way
We’ll find another way
(Your flag means nothing to me)
We’ll find another way
(Your wars mean nothing to me)
Another way
Track Name: Be The End
Violence engenders violence, engenders violence,
Engenders more violence
And this violence is what I fear
and this violence is what brought us here

Be the generation to hold back your hand
The world belongs to us, and not our grand dad
Be the generation to make amends
Or this generation will be the end
Will be the end
The end

Hold back your hand
Bite your tongue
Recognize what has been done
Be the generation, be the generation,
to overcome

Violence engenders violence, engenders violence
Be the end.
