Track Name: Business Suits on the Battlefield
Is it really worth starting a war
over rituals from before you were born?
You must've missed some of the movies that I watched
as a kid too young to understand the plots
But what I took away was
A fear of illusions
and falling into patterns
you don't want to get stuck in a battle
that has nothing to do with you
And if you think we're failing now
wait until the bombs are bursting here

We spent centuries searching for a cure
to not knowing exactly what will occur
We've shared the wrong books and twisted our history
it's in favor of the one whose reading
But what I took away was
People are trying
to find a connection
We just have to hope that there's more of us
who won't accept the status quo
And if you want a barricade
wait until the bombs are bursting here

The phone rings every weekend
and they try to convince you to sign up
forget your dreams you work for us now
You were born this way you die for us now

We're not gonna save you
we're gonna save ourselves

We pledge our allegiance
to something that's not so misleading
and if we don't find it we'll create it
Track Name: After the Boom
I try to look up but I can't move my neck
My phone's attached to my hands
unless it's in my pocket
And we learn a little more each day
(We might find out tomorrow)
I can't decipher the truth anyway
(if there's a reason we should stay here)

Debating for a world you'll leave behind
Complaining that you've had too little time

I take a break to sleep then reconnect
the more aware I become I feel insignificant
And our sworn enemies have no say
(They might fight back tomorrow)
I'm not good at projecting anyway
(unless they're threatening from the unknown)

Debating for a world you'll leave behind
Complaining that you've had too little time

You're running out of time because you're looking back
You're not going to fight for what you've already got
You'll arm those who've never had a shot
Track Name: Live the Resistance
We play these war games for entertainment
Now it's second nature to aim for the head
Is this a flashback?
or reminiscence of the past?
Or are we preparing for what is coming next?

Not gonna give them your endorsement
Never gonna give in without a thought
You're dreaming if you think that this is all we are

There is a dark cloud up ahead
The digital information
we can't let them control it
They're gaining access to how we think
and who we think we are
and who we want to be

Not gonna give them your endorsement
Never gonna give in without a thought
You're dreaming if you think that this is all we are
Stuck in the shadow of your achievements
Doesn't matter because you'll never get caught
Living life without consequences
You never have to think too hard
You never have to think

And the steps they take to reach the top
are the heads of those who beg to follow
Until they decide to listen to their conscious
and not what you're trying to sell

I'll never blindly follow

But they'll buy anything you're selling
