Break Free 04:20
Break Free (Zay, Tobias, Taylor) Say It Great stories from above Great people push and shove Great children reach for these fifty stars We are looking for the test that passes some and fails the rest In the richest country, they'll give you death And if you might fall, there'll be nowhere to call Break Free - Our love will fly home again Prey upon your child's heart Your deepest need You call this living, I call it greed To lose yourself and your culture to despair Why don't you get on board it's only fair Installed is the secret sadness we all share Break Free - Our love will fly home again And if you might fall there'll be nowhere to call Oh yes - we love you all Break - Our love will fly home Free - Our love will fly

Long Range Motion (Zay, Tobias, Taylor) Long range motion We are open Torn on the inside We are open See them fall from the sky Wait up, don't die Sense the danger, rip in the heart Torn away, pulse is gone Send away our hope Take away our home Inside my heart someone has attacked my home Inside my head its a war zone and I'm drawn to the streets that I love I need to be with the people - be with Long range motion We are open Torn on the inside We are open Blind Faith, straight to war Surrender to the cause Falling dreams in the maze See the lies, whose two-faced Send away our stories Take away our myths Long range motion We are open Torn on the inside We are open Today
3.
Recharge 04:51
Recharge (Zay, Tobias, Taylor) Don't give your power away Don't give your power away One persons words can't erase your name One situation can't wipe you away One source of movement One source of space Letting the past slip away Your time Your life Recharge inside Don't give your power away Don't give your power away All that you are is taken in vain the place that you've come to is slipping away It's a waste to lose you Your need is real The time to heal Your time Your life Recharge inside Hold yourself higher than the closest circling sun Hold yourself higher than the feeling that your done Your time Your life Recharge inside
4.
Fading 05:13
Fading (Zay) Taken to your eyes, you reach me inside Taken by surprise, I feel that I should hide If I gave you my heart and I gave you my soul Would you come to me, would take me home So if I'm your Island won't you breathe into me Don't you think of leaving me now I need you by my side Your fading in and out of my life Weakened to your knees, you fall down and cry Welcome to your greed, you reach up for the sky Just to hear your name taking so much blame Your lies reach the cycle, round and round insane But know your entitled to drown the voice of pain Don't you think of leaving me now I need you by my side Your fading in and out of my life (bridge) Don't you think of leaving me now I need you by my side Your fading in and out of my life Never to decide Cause I'm the one Who gave you up and your the one who died Your fading in and out of my life

Peace in The Warzone i - Telemetry ii - Dust Of Life iii - Fundamental Need (Zay, Tobias, Taylor) i> Telemetry If I don't give you my all and I stay back to play small What will you see that makes a difference at all? And if I feel like it's a waste and don't give you a little taste How can we heal from our collective fall? Can you see them Can you hear them singing everywhere Peace in the warzone In the warzone nothing blown away A holy war is how it looks hit by God's left hand crooks All the way from Rome to Pakistan Hiding from each others pain Running from our lonely zones Humanity is ready to unite Can you see them Can you hear them singing everywhere Peace in the warzone In the warzone nothing blown away ii> Dust of Life: instrumental iii> Born Again It feels like we are born again Down to hell, back to rent All our tragedies have a brand name Beneath the lies our leaders feed Financial loss, heightened greed Still lives our fundamental need Can you see them Can you hear them singing everywhere Peace in the warzone In the warzone nothing blown away

Disappear 04:35
Disappear (Zay, Taylor, Tobias) I don't want anyone to take care of me I don't want anyone to know who I am Behind my mask I hide my needs Behind my eyes I am sad Keep your eyes open They wash away the pain Keep your eyes open No ones pushed you away Sabotage by disappointing you I'm scared my needs will start to hurt you Don't want to lose myself in your imagined demands If I'm not being the best I cut off my hands Keep your eyes open They wash away the pain Keep your eyes open No ones pushed you away Stuck in a place with no intimacy Afraid to reach out my hand and all the reasons I am wrong for you Need to disappear in the sand
7.
Look Away 04:58
Look Away (Tobias, Zay, Taylor) Look away Everyone wants to fucking look away Where're you going today? Sick of running on empty Sick of having this thorn in my side Don't you tell me this is just stubborn pride I've been searching up and down the city street Quiet horizons where lost souls will meet Back and forth through loop holes again Directed to the sprawling malls of our culture You'll get the mega-mega virus of suburbia Our cities infested, our children arrested No wanting to see them, no outlet for freedom Feed me lies! Look away Everyone wants to fucking look away Where're you going today? Freaks and prostitution Lonely old men and contribution Running toward the paper chase illusion Pussy addicted human condition Probing your mind's eye, selling what won't die Look away Everyone wants to fucking look away Where're you going today? One for the children One for the mistake we've made Nothing ever takes me out of this game It's all or nothing for the story that you need When you think you've won you've already been beat Behind the veil, into your eyes A tear will shed on the door of time Pussy addicted human condition Probing your mind's eye, selling what won't die Look Away - make my day Look Away
8.
Two Soakings 05:12
Two Soakings (Zay, Tactical) They tell you they love you Then they hurt you This is what you believe So when I come along and give love to you You wonder what your going through -- I'm waiting for nothing but a promise that you will be a moment's worth of trying I'm flat on my face before I'm free I look at myself, I look at my needs Together we've made a game to play of what is right and what is free Two soakings from the best of us Two soakings and one of them will be Two soakings of everything Two soakings of blood and need Two soakings one for the kids gotta keep it connected when you know what you did

What Will it Take? (Zay, Tobias, Taylor) This political stance perpetuates rage You see a colony with an island to rape On the battle field it's a war of games Taking your time to leave as the children waste away What is the meaning when we know the truth Test your investment, take home the loot Buy off the rich keep your power there Yea, we're drowning in your wake What will it take for you to see our pain? To the top of Mount Carmello They've taken back the land The camp for Justice and Peace shows the world how to take a stand Cutting fences, faulty arrests Yea, we're drowning in your wake What will it take for you to see our pain? Children calling and the sky is falling Tears in my heart I will pray Tear down the walls - let them fall We have a voice - this is our home Getting scared in classrooms as bombs take their tests We're sick of the children breathing in the air of death You're in the zoo we're in the engine room Yea, we're drowning in your wake What will it take for you to see our pain? Children calling and the sky is falling Tears in my heart I will pray Tear down the walls - let them fall We have a voice - this is our home
