Track Name: Back From the Dead
(Satan's trying to take as many into hell with him as he can. He's got kids listening to punk rock music thinking that hell's just gonna be a big party. But they'll never see their friends. Only darkness and everlasting punishment. Some are so anxious to get there, they're committing suicide.)
Track Name: Faceless
You judge others, and accuse
people you don't know for everything they do
Good intentions from the right place
are lost when someone is blinded by hate

Demonize each other, always intervene
It's easy to attack when you hide behind a screen
I'd admire your yearning for social justice
if only you weren't so goddamn pretentious

Just because someone
may not be agreeing with you
It doesn't mean that they are right or wrong,
it means that they have their own points of view
So quick to call each other out
even if we don't know a single thing about
the people that we battle, or what we're fighting for
Track Name: Burning Bridges
Sick of your shit, I'm not afraid to speak
my mind on what I think and I think you're fucking weak
Act like you're informed, like you pretend to care
but all you care about are your personal affairs

Call yourself anarchists but you have so many rules
Walls are what you hide behind cause you're all such fucking fools

You people are so fake, you so easily snub
anyone who's not a member of your shitty club
Monopolize the D.I.Y. scene
Your militant views are not for me

Started off strong but you've sunk so low
The damage you've done is beginning to show
Does it make you feel good about yourself
to have your ego fed by everyone else

Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way
But I won't stop until I see some change

Before you try to give me your speech,
how about you practice what you preach
Think you're special, so you stand tall
But you're the biggest hypocrites of all
(I don't) I don't feel safe
in your fucking space
(I don't) I don't feel safe
in your fucking space
Track Name: Carry the Torch
I am a slave to my ambition
an idealistic
victim of my own torture
A stubborn proponent of counter-culture
Sometimes it feels like I'm alone
in the choices that I make
But these choices are mine
and I'll make my own mistakes

But I know just who I am, and who I wanna be
cause I live my life by these songs that mean so much to me
So I'll stick to my plan
and do the best I can
and be the change that I wanna see

Even if I have the worst luck
I refuse to ever give up
Because as long as I have positive people in my life
nothing exceeds my grasp, and I know everything will be alright

Cause I know just who I am, and who I wanna be
cause I live my life by these songs that mean so much to me
So I'll stick to my plan
and do the best I can
and be the change that I wanna see
Track Name: Open Your Eyes
All I see is a sad old man grasping for his past
Brag about the imaginary fortune you've amassed
Avoid responsibility like the fucking plague
All the people you have wronged will come for you one day

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
See through the lies
See through the lies
See through the lies

Seem to be lacking respect for others and yourself
Overlook morality in the pursuit of wealth
Manipulating others for your own personal gain
Your actions aren't forgotten but the damages remain

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
See through the lies
See through the lies
See through the lies
Track Name: Closed Doors
Don't tell me what you think
about a group of people that you just don't know
We all should have a chance
at working to create a life of our own
We all think we're right, so we're sure to fight
with each other cause we think we know the answer
Afraid to lose your spot sitting at the top
Your xenophobia has become a cancer

People searching for a better place and
instead of home they find
A frightened and judgemental land filled
with closed off doors and minds
Don't forget how you got here yourself cause
I think that it's time we change
This skewed and ignorant state of mind
No matter what it takes

You're willing to exploit someone to fill your needs
But you won't give them a a chance to succeed
Everybody thinks they have an answer to it all
when they're sitting in the comfort of their four painted walls, yeah

The dividing borders we build need to fall
Tear down the fences and break down the walls
I'm sick of hearing the same racist shit
The people you knock down will never submit
