Track Name: For the Lost and the Loud
You'll find us on the edges of the main land
Where bullets and the bombs are out of reach
We watch the endless war between the cavemen
Make no mistake this is a tragic comedy

We are the architects the underground conductors
We are the fighting few and we stand alone
We are the great crusaders of the modern age
Fighting through the restless zombies and the drones

The track's in place -- and the stage is set
The bricks are laid -- come place your bets

From the bottom of the bottle to the floor
As the drum beat pounds beyond the cellar door
This revolution never can be killed
This is what we've built -- this is what we've built

We're here to break the underhanded thieves
We're here to stop the giants in their tracks
We'll bring the heartless bastards to their knees
White knuckles in the air, we'll take it back

From the bottom of the bottle to the floor
As the drum beat pounds beyond the cellar door
This revolution never can be killed
This is what we've built -- this is what we've built

We sparked the fire, lit the way
Without a dollar in our name
We picked the locks and broke the chains
We'll throw our own goddamn parade

From the bottom of the bottle to the floor
As the drum beat pounds beyond the cellar door
This revolution never can be killed
This is what we've built -- this is what we've built
(We never can be killed)
Track Name: 26
Tragedy struck the nation today
Another random act of violence
Lives cut short senselessly
The day is stained with loss of innocence

Bulletins flash on the TV screen
Across the airwaves debate renews
Country divided over rights to own
Won't be an answer, both sides refuse

Will they ever realize?
There's a need for compromise
If nothing is done, it'll happen again
Argument continues...will it ever end?
This needs to end

Different day but the same old story
Challenges the people's morality
A new list of victims to be remembered
And an act to question our civility

The second right never intended automatic
Carved in stone in a system democratic
It can all be changed
It can all be changed

Will they ever realize?
There's a need for compromise
If nothing is done, it'll happen again
Argument continues...will it ever end?
This needs to end
Track Name: True Face
Here we stand
Mending sails on a sinking ship
Here they rule
Box of rocks and an iron fist
Here we are
Working only to pay our debt
Cleaning up someone else's mess
Chanting songs from an ancient text

And we run -- Through these cracked and broken streets
We watch -- The world crumble at our feet

I sold off my dignity to pay my rent
And It's a shame -- We can't all be tax exempt

Close your eyes
Fold your hands and hold your breath
Locked up safe
Not a thought of the world's distress
And we ride on
Screaming how did it come to this
Fighting tooth and nail and fist
Just to prove that we exists

And we run -- Through these cracked and broken streets
We Fall -- But we won't accept defeat

I sold off my dignity to pay my rent
And It's a shame -- We can't all be tax exempt
Stand your ground, don't let them take your monument
And we'll ride on -- We ride on
Track Name: Pink Slips in the Flower City
Nothing ever was picture perfect in the city cameras built
The factory laid off everybody and my hometown started to wilt
Workers were down in the dumps, most headed to the bars
They were thinking while they were drinking we've fallen off so far

Since there's nothing left to do, we'll drink away the afternoon
The rug's been pulled from underneath our feet
For now we'll just be having, throwing back another one
We may be down but this town won't be beat
Tomorrow we will stumble to our feet

From the 15th story window you can see all that remains
The shadows of the smokestacks are all that stayed the same
People were left with empty pockets as they struggled to survive
And the bars were packed so tightly that you couldn't get inside

Since there's nothing left to do, we'll drink away the afternoon
The rug's been pulled from underneath our feet
For now we'll just be having, throwing back another one
We may be down but this town won't be beat
Tomorrow we will stumble to our feet

Maybe we shouldn't be here -- Maybe we should go
But if we were gone -- How would we ever know?
What happened to the town we left behind?

Since there's nothing left to do, we'll drink away the afternoon
The rug's been pulled from underneath our feet
For now we'll just be having, throwing back another one
We may be down but this town won't be beat
Tomorrow we will stumble to our feet
Track Name: Welcome to Planet Earth
You must be joking -- Can't believe that it's true
Got our eyes on the prize -- Now let's call in the troops
This time bomb is ticking -- It's about to explode
We're locked and we're loaded and ready to go

Only this time we can't point the finger away
The orders are issued, the plans have been made
We salute you and bid you a fond farewell
We wish you the best and we'll see you in Hell

Fire at will, fire at will
Can't stop us now -- the world's standing still
Fire at will, fire at will
The children, they watch from the top of the hill

It's no big surprise, we fucked up again
Our pockets as empty as all of their heads
But we'll clean up our mess and we'll cover our tracks
We only move forward -- we'll never look back

But there's no need to worry, no need for shame
We started a fire now we're walking away
But the dust never settles the sky never clears
In time you will find that we've all disappeared

Fire at will, fire at will
Can't stop us now -- the world's standing still
Fire at will, fire at will
The children, they watch from the top of the hill
(Fire at will, fire at will)
