Track Name: Dead Lands
Out in the distance, a burning resistance,
A fire fuelled by what makes us,
You know what makes us all inside
A fire to burn today.

Bring on tomorrow and hope for the change that we all strive for,
Tomorrows a different day,
You know what changes out tomorrow,
If we don’t CHANGE TODAY

At the distance of horizon,
It burns our nights away
What is left for you and me?
For a better way

FOR A BETTER WAY
Track Name: Ghost Of Blackened Days
Travelled out so far, searching in the dark,
What we found outside is the COLDEST OF STORMS.
This ghost of blackened days, talks in blackened ways,
What we will find outside is I WILL BURN FOREVER.

Now we’re in this together,
Lost feeling all the same,
When they find us we’ll be cast aside and I...
I’ll take it all the same

Now the truths out, now without a doubt,
Take it on myself and I’ll TAKE THE BLAME.
You never screamed so loud ‘’I HOPE YOU’RE VERY PROUD’’.
This time we’re out of all.
THE FINAL DAYS ARE COMING.
Track Name: You Can't Make An Action Movie Without Snapping A Few Necks!
For these broken times,
Flash check token spines,
When all that’s left is rust,
Snap necks in blood we trust

Now who’s that standing at the door,
You finally came back cause it’s what you needed more.
WE’LL FIND OUR WAY,
Back to the Alamo
Last action hero till the end

Big bombs and countless dead,
Drone attacks in the sea of red,
When all that’s left is need,
In this big white house of greed
Track Name: Pull The Last Punch
You waited all this time and what for?
Nothing ever changes whilst you stand by and watch.
The future is what you make it so fight for what you believe in,
If you sit back and watch the fires then they’ll all grow cold.

From the start you will lay your weapons down.
A slave to your past
BUT IF YOU
Sit back and watch yourself burn up,
All you get is ashes.

And now you’re on your knees, you’re blaming,
All those around you who threw you a rope and tried to pull you...
Out of time and nothing more for me to say here,
You know what happens next to you but you’ll all ways choose surrender

BUT IF YOU!!!!
Pull the last punch, got nothing till the end of the fight your tired
BUT IF YOU!!!!
Send the last blow, connecting to the past then your future is your prize!
BUT IF YOU!!!!
Track Name: Open Waters
In the darkest light of day,
Our hope will find a way.
When were stuck adrift and far from the shore,
Our hearts will make the call

Set sail for open waters,
We’ll sink this ship at night.
All these days and nights of misdirection,
But we’re running out of light

When were frozen, far adrift,
When this sweet relief’s a gift,
Now these shredded sail’s will lead us to wreck,
This coast of disrespect

AND WE’LL WAIT,
ALL OUR LIVES,
AND WE’LL SING!
Track Name: Light The Torches
In corners of the dark, lurks a spectre with a mark,
Help me shed this light, help me fight this night,
Will you bring it on yourself or put freedom on the shelf,
It’s a costly fight, fall from the greatest height

I die but I’m always reborn,
In the furthest reaches, others are sworn.
Can’t fight what you cannot see,
This throne usurper in you and me.

In a castle on the hill where the kings feed and swill,
Hold a feast tonight, gluttonous appetite.
Golden chains hold us here, massive greed is always near,
Burn the keep tonight, united start this fight

WE ARE READY,
FOR THIS NIGHT;
LIGHT THE TORCHES,
UNITED TO FIGHT.
KINGS AND QUEENS FALL,
A KINGDOM OF DARK,
THIS GOLDEN THRONE,
USURPERS TASK!
Track Name: Stray Dogs
We all made this simple fire to keep warm,
As we sat all night and hoped.
With these embers burning I don’t remember,
All these things you said to me.

Now you sit around all night,
And these stray dogs,
Will howl at the sky.
For what it’s worth we waited all day,
For a glimpse of the fire.

WHATS THIS, YOU SAY, We’re dead anyway.
That’s always your choice.
DON'T TAKE, OUR SOULS, screams from yesterday.
Stray dogs till the last.

Through the darkness of this blood stained idea,
One by one we slip away,
All these rusted dogs will fade into the past,
Still A cost to high to pay.

FOR FIRES AT NIGHT,
WISH TO BURN THE PAST AWAY.
THESES DOGS OF OURS,
DEEP BENEATH,
KNOW THE WAY.
Track Name: Waiting On This
Broken time, every time. Every time you started.
And I don’t mind if you take your time to change your ways.
Now it’s all down to this, Down to what you started,
A fire in this darkened room will burn it down.

So wait ‘till I’m home,
Why don’t you BURN the house down whilst I’m still inside.
What was that you were saying,
I don’t CARE, what was said anyway.

Take this time, take it all, take it all away from me.
And I don’t mind if you take the time to burn away.
Light the fire, do it! Go! Throw us all into it.
A fire in this burning room won’t change a thing.

I don’t remember ever asking you,
It’s time, for what’s right
Now we’re waiting on this.
Track Name: Stay Your Hand
Every night we fear the same,
Future darkness, yeah full of pain,
We’re shadows cast across these empty streets,
Darken army’s call from alley ways and broken doors,
Reach out yourself for me.

STAY YOUR HAND,
Wait for the change,
Pray that someone else will save the day.....
NOT A CHANCE,
It’s up to yourself,
Light this up for me.

STAY YOUR HAND
WAIT FOR THE CHANGE....
Track Name: Haunt These Streets
Every night, same old choice,
I choose to wander these halls alone.
From the start, tear it down,
This ash will crumble.

Street light, it’s alright,
Lights a path to a brighter day,
And I’ll wait for that dawn,
THAT COLDEST SUNRISE

I’LL HAUNT THESE STREETS,
And I’ll wait for the sunrise,
(HAUNT THESE STREETS)
To burn away the darkness,
Tomorrow’s dawn,
TOMORROWS DAWN.

HAUNT THESE STREETS
AND I WILL....
HAUNT THESE STREETS
