Track Name: Rise Up
The time has come to face the music
Fearlessly we stand up to the powers that be
Do you really want a world with no justice?
It's troubling that bribery runs through rampantly

Do your loyalties lie in treasure?
Or bonds bound to break, until we bail them out?
We know how to make the world better
Powered by the people, it's time to wisen up right now

Rise up, wise up
Whose side are you on?
Come embrace the movement
We've been bought for far too long
Rise up, wise up
There's something going wrong
When we put our faith and dollars in bombs

So rise up and fight
Momentum is on our side

Rise up, you need to wise up
You need to look around and make your mind up
If inaction is a fraction of mentality
Then we're broke inside a buyable society

We can all feel the power
If we raise our hands
We fight for the common man
See beyond the less of two evils
We can take a stand

Do your loyalties lie in treasure?
Or bonds bound to break, until we bail them out?
We know how to make the world better
Powered by the people, it's time to wisen up right now

Rise up, wise up
Whose side are you on?
Come embrace the movement against corruption
Rise up, wise up
There's something going wrong
When we put our faith and dollars in bombs

So rise up
This is a revolution
(So rise up and fight)
(Momentum is on our side)
Track Name: Borderlines
Well the stars have gathered this evening
But the city’s stolen all our light
And it tingle me to know I’m just your type

Clear cut paths are deceiving
When they head inside your pockets for more

Leading me in circles all the time
Even if I feel intoxicated
I can’t get you out of my mind
And it thrills me that I’m paying for your time
Even if I feel intoxicated

Take a step outside
And in this light you’ll find
We are all slaves to the borderlines

Am I radical?
Or delusional?
Do I even have a good use to you?
You are just a tailored face
Another dollar and another day

Do I look alone?
You’re never gonna know
You’re never gonna have a way to find my love

Do you feel the bern?

I thought you were the one but you needed two
Here in the desert I needed you
Here in the desert

Conquered and bought for
When will they reap what they sow?
It’s hard to believe what they say
They’re all fucking liars
Track Name: Magnets
Two eyes like currents cutting through
Temptation in a crowded room
Pulling me to you
I try to move but I hesitate
Like dreams I sway but never reach
How are you still alone?

Shake my hand
Let's act like we haven't met
Let's pretend that we aren't two magnets
Who just haven't collided

Fate locks like rhythm within our eyes
You feel it to, you realize
Earth crumbles and I'm floating
Within the weight of your gravity
Don't let me move the other way

And for now, we'll drift in space
We're getting closer, we just have to wait
Track Name: Nice Song
Get up, get up, get up
It's time to live again
Find a place that you know
You can be happy in
Get up, get up, get up
The world is calling out
For you to make a move

So let yourself out
And while you breath in

Notice
The feeling of your heartbeat
It pulses through your body
The rhythms never stopping
It's always keeping you up
So you can make your choices
And blend in with the voices
Of lovers like a chorus
Whose hearts are always
Beating through

Get up, get up, get up
You've been asleep for
So long that you forgot
What you are here for
Get up, get up, get up
It's time to rejoice
Like you are still brand new

So let yourself out
And while you breathe in

Beating through
Straight through to you

But it's your choice whether to listen
You could always stay the same
But then you're missing out on living
Track Name: The Bereaved
A light, a shattered glass
Tonight, we'll meet at last
One touch and I will fly
One kiss another cry
I'll leave without a goodbye
I fear, before you weep another tear
You'll understand why we're not alone
Then there'll be nothing at all

I just want to tell you one thing
To never live this down
To open up your eyes
And tell me why we tried again
When all your sins remained among us
I will not breathe

Can you hear me now?
As I whisper I am always around
A memory through sound
You know that I am still with you now
Can you hear me now?

Don't forget me
We'll meet again when the time is right

You understand that we will not win
Unless you live
You understand that we will not win
Unless we live
Track Name: For the Sake of It
You thought the world was just where you'd been
I fell in love for the sake of it
Tonight let's just see
Let's drive to new cities where old highways lead
On roads so unfamiliar to me

A thousand miles apart
A feeling alive inside my heart
I took your broken light and made it mine
To get me through the night
I know you're the only one
One in seven billion
A thousand miles apart

Believe in your beauty and all that you stand for
Gaining the knowledge of love never felt before

My heart drops
And my breath is lost for a moment
When we meet again
Our bodies are locked in motion

If universe works fatefully, then you'll never leave
Even if your light goes out eventually
If the darkness comes to bury me, 'till I cannot see
For a thousand miles, a feeling guiding me

Cycle through the motions
Cycle through emotions
