let's burn this rusted wagon down kill the king to shatter the crown topple the steeples and tear down the flags fill empty bottles with gasoline rags feel the earth shake statues are fallin' feel the crowd break torches are callin' topple the steeples and tear down the flags fill empty bottles with gasoline rags.

Coin the phrase US interest civilian corpses all litter the ditches rotting bodies stacked a mile high behind electric fences everything is money everything is greed I'd really want to help you gotta tell me what you need I'm just a human a pawn in a twisted game towers falling in the east innocent killed by police Government hypocrisy corrodes away all decency in a nation under a so called god who's falling on his knees pointless money wars caused by corporate whores watch you through their hidden cameras stealing from their stores so they lock you up in jail with a million dollar bail lighter skin and money wins in a nation going straight to hell Towers fall and burn to rot away and kill the earth the flag spells death for me and death for all humanity

Charred soils all that's left We're walking in a trap We've set ourselves Our footprints soon to be our grave We cannot let the Earth be bought and sold planet's not property our greed for profit killed our only home CHORUS There's a canary in coal mine we'll never change i fear we breed like pests and turn our backs while the future screams at us commodities the symbol of our culture we raise our kids in shopping carts these days A twisted fallen tree lay in the desert once the sea were on the brink of a Catastrophe with key and galantine the earth it ceases to move the man of lawlessness will come for us a web of lies made of glass is shattered on the shores the basis for life is crumbling like the glaciers we raise our kids in shopping carts these days The future could be beautiful if we could only make a difference before it get too late solution's as simple as design our existence rests in our hands and if we don't change soon I fear that we'll eradicate ourselves The future screams at us

at our feet lay fallen giants in a coffin rests the state in our fists were clutching tightly key to open fires gate so shoot the dice and flip the coin tie the noose and back your words or hide under the blankets when the wolves come out to play (when i start singing "so shoot the dice..." the yelling is "a sheep in wolves clothing".) CHORUS: when it's anybodys game will you just cower on the shelf or sharpen the blade of your sword the rounds set in the chamber and the tyrants blood runs cold to fire the bullet first you must pick up the gun. does the black bandana cloak the bomber or the coward? does your screaming wreak of protest or dissolve into the crowd? are we building up a movement or decaying with the state? when the guns have fallen in our hands we'll have no time to wait. CHORUS muerte policia OR more dead policia

sycophantic apathetic all the shit you got you take for granted really makes you look pathetic ya know there isn't any truth to anything your sayin' you think you got the answers but you're wrong you have no credit to show cause you stupid and your selfish your ignorant and helpless you got no moral values your lower than low and to me it seems like your barely a human being you got no feelings or conscience oh no no no no CHORUS Your just a stupid little whiny upper middle class brat so tell me what the fuck your goin' to do about that you going to sue me well i don't got much to take stupid little whiny upper middle class brat so tell me what the fuck your goin' to do about that you going to sue me I'll kick your lawyer in the face Your so conceded you think your undefeated but you seem like a total fucking loser to me and your huge ego will never make up for all the friends you left behind running to the drug store I've tried to respect you I've tried to accept you but every time i find myself racing for the door cause your so damn inconsiderate surprised your not illiterate you never take a moment just to listen and learn CHORUS

flood the oceans cloud the skies heat the rock to melt the ice away swing the wreaking ball till there's nothing left to break set fire to the ashes of a thousand burnt down forests let me ask you what's your alibi this time CHORUS Thousands of fists raised into the air ready to fight to kill to rip to tear your systems apart at the seems dismantle machines and the death of your greed will follow the air is thick with sweat the rivers with blood lead me through the cemetery lead me through the cemetery home is buried deep beneath the rubble we're not afraid anymore anymore CHORUS Fallen soldiers final breath sleep in streets that reek of death whoah whoah stare into a loaded gun now there's nowhere left to run whoah who's left to bleed they're comin' for you lurking in your shadows whoah whoah what it means to die for CHORUS
7.
an unfinished letter was left on the table candles and stove left aflame and the rug stained with blood the police came and dragged us away they broke down our doors and they split up our families threw us in cages and sent us away on the trains now we starve beneath barbed wire fences and gunner towers

Claw the sleep from your eyes thats one beautiful dress that your wearing just to sit in the dark are you happy to fit in the mold is it too much to carry if you stand on your own (Chorus) Clutch unto the leader by the coattails follow along the trends with all your friends jump off the bridge why don't you question their plans bound in the chains of command Remember your freedom and step out of line Cut up that fucking credit card burn that goddamn closet to the ground hang yourself in a bussiness suit and in the highest bidders furnace drown (Chorus) Cut up that fucking credit card burn that goddamn closet to the ground burn it down burn it down burn it down hang yourself in a bussiness suit and in the highest bidders furnance drown They'll melt you down to forge their swords and forge their guns (burn it down burn it down burn it down) (Chorus) Claw the sleep from your eyes thats one beautiful dress that your wearing just to sit in the dark all alone

The ink never strays from the lines on the paper a troubling reminder we're set in our ways conditioned to buy what is sold just as long as they tell us we need it we're willing to pay CHORUS Place a price tag on my head and start the bidding to them we're just a paycheck we are the all consuming sheep in the pasture that's littered with barbs a rat in a maze dons the suit in your closet to rot in a single file line' shuffle through trenches of white may our hearts never whither in wallets a hunger for monetary wealth dissolves unity (the sheep shall follow) CHORUS Preprogrammed god fucking save us (where are you? where are you?) come set us free so cold and empty when there's money on the line (we will tear into ourselves) Preprogrammed why won't you help us (where are you? where are you?) come set us free so cold and empty when there's money on the line (we will tear ourselves apart) CHORUS

123454321 The air it seems rusted with last year's discussions we're stuck in the bottom of an empty glass what happened? where are we? CHORUS we where we were six months ago the bathrooms flooded fridge is rotten and I'm past out with the roaches on the floor go! That night we spent in jail and didn't know why we were there noone would tell us fuckin' pigs just kept us locked up in a cell but all that I could worry about was whether or not you were okay you came that night to bail me out and said they took your sweet ass taser Three tears you shed when you fell off the bed when our spray painted rug made your face swell up red I wandered off into a ditch a car horn was the last I heard you found me the next morning and i lost my favorite shirt CHORUS PICK IT UP! 123454321

woah woah oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh oh blindfolded back to the cold metal bars the screaming of inmates and laughing of guards fills your head fill the camera with gruesome depictions of just how evil we can be stabbed to death on the banks of a river the cold shenandoah will serve as your grave the topic of many a candle lit vigil but banded together the lives we could save go woah oh oh..... gangtags blanket all the walls in this god forsaken town shotgun shells and empty clips are stompped into the ground a war ensues behind the veil of glamour trend and profit 'cause the radio and mtv control your fuckin' wallets and all these kids they think it's cool to play with loaded guns and they always seem so ignorant to impending repercussions unity cannot exist when colors seperate and the police are not the only gang that runs rampant in these states CHORUS: innocent people are dying and it seems like no one cares what the fuck has money done to us we're all against the cops but they are not the only ones aiming their goddamn guns and spilling blood woah oh oh..... stop the violence burn the flags a life should never end over the color of a rag territory drugs and glory dead bolt busted rug stained red it started off to reconstruct a community in peaces we can all just help each other we don't need police but soon their hands were painted red day to day yet so obscene the innocent were lying dead buried in a coffin green woah oh oh..... x3 CHORUS woah oh oh..... drugs and glory territory blood for profit stop the violence woah oh oh.....

an old woman's tappin' at the door morning light lines eastern mountains ridge with stiffened neck raise up your horns and dare not cross that devils bridge we toil for a shallow grave an empty cup and widowed sage when every coarse accosts a cliff our weary spines beset by hindrance high may every waning breath be battlecry yield to nothing we toil for a shallow grave an empty cup and widowed sage CHORUS: plan not on hearing the rattle when life escapes my lungs when time comes for war shed you armor and waltz through the battlefield screaming you'll never go silently into the night hell is not fire and brimstone instead its sterilized walls white where innocent victims rot into beds beneath florescent lights and now theres nothing left for them to do but wait for lines to flatten (corrosion set into foundation holds no life just fear soon this lighthouse shall crash into ruin) when all your mirrors shatter and those six blackbirds align outside your door give not into your tired bones but keep your eyelids torn and remember just as long as your still breathing you've never made a promise to the graveyard CHORUS the reaper shall tremble before me (WARD OFF THE VULTURES) i wont soon be resting in earth (WARD OFF THE VULTURES) we're all chained to the deck of a slave ship an hour glass (WARD OFF THE VULTURES) don't let the spilling sands slip through your fingers the reaper shall tremble before me (WARD OFF THE VULTURES) i wont soon be resting in earth (WARD OFF THE VULTURES) we're all chained to the deck of a slave ship an hour glass (WARD OFF THE VULTURES) don't let the spilling sands slip through your fingers AS LONG AS YOU'RE BREATHING YOU'RE FREE FROM THE GRAVE CHORUS

Now I 03:16
The bridge is gone again the ropes are severed the planks were rotten anyway I've fallen in the chasm once before times just floating by the hourglass is shattered and the sands gone with the wind The walls are closing in and growing taller all the doors have disappeared and i feel my lungs collapsing i must stray away from beaten paths if I'm to find my river i now i now i can see what i am looking for now i... Place the barrel of a gun against my head and tell me that I'll fail keep your jaw unhinged to be the wind that fills my sail and lock me up in ball and chain i swear I'll just try harder to break free these bones will never fill your jail i now i now i... I'll build the bridge back up from rubble and dig your grave with your own shovel I'll sink my flesh into the soil to plant the sead of hope

Just board this sinking ship roll in the anchor were leaving port not one of us will make it back alive my friend commit my body to the ocean keep my heart inside a locket strung around your neck and together we will sink into the depths (chorus) like clockwork time will ebb and flow to wash away the footprints left my demons long ago we're hold up in asylum harbor until the storm blows over we've lost the rope and loaded to the gunwale roll in the anchor The ghost of years past have now return to claim our souls and fill an urn the hourglass is draining by the second spirits are surrounding you their gazes piercing right through your flesh can you taste the reaper on your breath? (chorus) Snap the bride's ring finger the flowers of spring have withered in the winter we saw the plague approaching from miles away now we share a brew of misery from the chalice of love as the feast rots on the table (the sun is o'er the yardarm let's raise a glass to waste) Choose your tomb and I'll choose mine We'll run across these county lines and when we reach the coast we'll turn only to see the smoke that billows up from cities smoldering we left only their ashes in our wake say goodbye we're sinking down we've fallen off the boat
