1. These Cities, Our Graves

We are dying
We are diseased
We are the cancer that's killing these streets

We are dying

We are diseased

We are the cancer that's killing these streets

2. Distance

Hollow eyes

But alive and still diseased
Everyone is screaming

But no one's saying a thing

 

One thousand

Empty words from a thousand empty voices
Won't change a fucking thing

No culture
No movement
No expression
Just distance

Romanticised failure and apathy
Their cross's keep burning

Blind eyes keep turning
Centuries of progression for an age of ignorance
Do you feel the guilt?

Do you feel?

Lifetimes spent longing

For an image
No consequence

Just decadence and greed

 

And nothing's gonna make you live forever

Do you feel the guilt?

Wash the blood from your hands

Do you feel the guilt?

Wash the blood from your hands

Blackened eyes

Are you breathing?
Empty words

Is your heart still beating?

 

You can't live forever

We just want to live now

Find your voice

Find those words

Take it back

 

The time is now

The time is now


 

3. Show Some Heart

The weak are getting weaker
And the youth are dead or pacified
You're living your TV dream
While innocents are bred to die


I'll take a stand for those who can't
I'll scream for those who can't speak

I'll take a stand for those who can't

I'll scream for those who can't speak

 

Go


Caged and slaughtered
A life of misery
Just to line the pockets

Of rich companies


While we suck at the hand of

Media and corporations
We grow fat and sedated
We kill and destroy

Our life is (go vegan) over consumption (go vegan)

Our life is (go vegan) over consumption (go vegan)

Go

Caged and slaughtered
A life of misery
Just to line the pockets

Of rich companies


While we suck at the hand of

Media and corporations
We grow fat and sedated
We kill and destroy

The weak are getting weaker
And the youth are dead or pacified

I'll take a stand for those who can't
I'll scream for those who can't speak

Go vegan

4. Stranger

 

I still remember who you were

And who you claimed to be
And still
Inside

And out
You're fucking empty


Nothing but a shell
With fake emotion, feigned personality
I still remember

Who you were

And who you claimed to be

With every word and every letter

From every language
I could not construct a single sentence
That could do you justice
That could express my disbelief
At your lack of judgment
The tongue in your fucking cheek

And you said the world has changed
But you haven't, but you just stayed the same

It's sad to say you became

Everything you loved to hate

It's sad to say you became

Everything you loved to hate

It's sad to say you became

Everything you loved to hate

Everything you loved to


If you had any substance left
I could look you in the eyes

Apologize

For the day when I snap
And I finally cut that

Tongue from your fucking cheek

Motherfucker

Your jealous mouth

May poison me

And your touch may

Burn my skin

Your jealous mouth

May poison me

And your touch may

Burn my skin

But the rotting wound

Where your heart was once
Will do more damage

Than I could ever give you

5. Hollywood

So Hollywood is the rotting heart of

A decaying nation
And this heart won't stop infecting

Until we burn it down

Silhouettes, streetlights

You're killing yourselves
Just distractions


You weak motherfuckers

You're living your life on your knees
You weak motherfuckers
Modern culture is disease


You ain't living

You're just killing
You ain't living

You're just consuming


So Hollywood is the rotting heart of a diseased population

And this heart won't stop beating

Until we burn it down

And this heart won't stop infecting

Until we burn it down

You weak motherfuckers

You're living your life on your knees
You weak motherfuckers
Modern culture is disease


You ain't living

You're just killing
You ain't living

You're just consuming

And this heart won't stop beating

Until we burn this to the ground

And this heart won't stop beating

Until we

Until we burn this city

To the ground

And this heart won't stop beating

Beating

Until we burn this city

To the ground
