Track Name: Hive Mind
We were given our minds to think,
not to blindly agree with words on a link.
Vegetating behind colored screens.
We’re just becoming a part of social network machinery.

We were given our minds to think.
We were given our minds to think.

I’ll never be a copycat like you.
I’ll ll never do the things the world insists I should do.
I’m not a tool for the world to abuse.
I’m not a tool that the world can abuse.

I’ll never be a copycat like you.
I’ll ll never do the things the world insists I do.

I won’t be a copycat like you.

This new revision of mind control is just a sickening truth of our human nature.
There’s nothing new under the sun just many different faces.
I can’t be the only one that feels this way.
I can’t be the only one that feels this way.

We were given our minds to think,
not to blindly agree with words on a link.
Vegetating behind colored screens.
We’re just becoming a part of social network machinery.
Track Name: Recalcitrance
I’ve never been a man that bows down to authority.
I’m so sick of feeling like a dog that’s kicked away.

I won’t go. Air flows into these lungs so I can voice my mind.
I won’t go. Fitting into a box was never part of my greater plan.

I see things differently.

I choose to view the world with an open mind.
I choose to view the world with an open mind.

I want the world to know that they can go against the grain.
Outsider’s judgments shouldn’t matter. It’s such a tragedy.

I won’t take this from you
I won’t take this from you
I won’t take this from you
I won’t take your hateful judgments

I’ve never been a man that bows down to authority.
I’m so sick of feeling like a dog that’s kicked away.

I’m sick and tired of the way we always push and turn away from different views beside our own instead of turning back in love. There’s not a hateful word or action that will change the other’s mind I’m just so sick of people telling me I’m garbage if we don’t see eye to eye.

I won’t go. Air flows into these lungs so I can voice my mind.
I won’t go. Fitting into a box was never part of my greater plan.

I see things differently.

I choose to view the world with an open mind.
I choose to view the world with an open mind.
Track Name: Ruffians
Let it loose.

I am not the law. I’ve had enough of your pointless rules now get out of my face.
I am not the law. I am not the law.

I am not a person you can tread all over with your judgments like a filthy snake, Slither. Slither.
It’s getting harder now to hold my temper. I’ve had enough. I’ve had enough.
Slither away. Slither away.

This insanity isn’t part of me.
To hell with hypocrisy.
And your piety.
let me free.

You can’t keep chains on me.
You know i’ll always break free.
It’s easier to push me away than to hear what I say.
You see me bleed. It’s not for you and not for me.
I bleed for my Father, for the lost and for the unloved.
You can’t keep chains on me.
You know i’ll always break free
You see me bleed.
It’s not for you and not for me

This insanity isn’t part of me.
To hell with hypocrisy.
And your piety.
let me free.

Wait a minute. Do you ever wonder why you’re all alone?
It can’t be you. It’s all the people that don’t see the world through your narrow point of view.

We all have problems. We all rose up from the dust of the earth and are all fallen the same.
We all have problems. We’re all just visitors walking with the same dirt under our feet.

We all stand on equal ground and we’re given the chance to love. Still we choose to fight and turn our backs on each other
tearing down instead of building up.

Perfect ideals, perfect ideals, they only work in a perfect world.
Perfect ideals, Perfect ideals, they only preach to the one that’s holding them

Wait a minute. Do you ever wonder why you’re all alone? It can’t be you. It’s all the people that don’t see the world through your narrow point of view.

We all stand on equal ground and we’re given the chance to love. Still we choose to fight and turn our backs on each other
tearing down instead of building up.

It’s funny how we got it in our heads to be exactly the same as the rest of them
when really we’re all our own and not alike. Not alike the other people that just try to fit in.
It’s time to change that little part of our mind
that says we’ve gotta put on a sick disguise.
let’s show the world that we’re different. I’m not the same as you

I’m not the same as you I’m not the same as you.

I’ve got a giant mess in my head it’s gonna stay a mess and torture me until i’m dead. I’ve got these problems in my head and now they want me dead.
But now the world just wants to be the master. They call it a controlled disaster.
I’m not the same as you I’m not the same as you.

We all have our own disasters in our heads
but also have the most amazing gifts to show the world.
Let’s come together in our fascinating differences
and spread the gift of love and shout “i’m not the same as you”.

Let’s be free. Let’s be free to show the world who we really are.
We’re not the same. We’re not the same and that’s the most incredible thing that we can ever be.
Let’s be free. Let’s be free to show the world who we really are.
We are not the same. We are not the same.

It’s funny how we got it in our heads to be exactly the same as the rest of them when really we’re all our own and not alike. Not alike the other people that just try to fit in.

Let’s show the world that we’re different.
I’m not the same as you.
Track Name: Mutation
I am twisted. From all this hate I see around me.
I’m breaking. Do you like this monster you’ve made?

I’m not buying what you’re selling and I’ll never be a part of your twisted business. It’s so sickening.
You prey upon the weakened heart. You have created a monster that I thought I’d never be.
I fear the anger that is building inside. I don’t feel sane anymore. I’m not myself anymore.
You prey upon the weakened heart. You have created a monster that I thought I’d never be.

I’m burning inside my head.
I wanted love. You gave me darkness instead.
You’ve created a monster.
I swear I’m not a monster.

So go ahead and hate me.
You’re just fighting the fire with gasoline.
This is a growing mutation.
If only I had the power to save myself.

I feel this fire burning in my head.
I wanted love but you gave me darkness instead.
You have created a violent monster.
I swear I’m not this creature you’ve made in me.

So go ahead and hate me.
You’re just fighting the fire with gasoline.
This is a growing mutation.
If only I had the power to save myself.

I am twisted. From all this hate I see around me.
I’m losing control of myself.
Do you like this monster you’ve made?
All I can do is break.
Track Name: X
I have fallen down the path to my end.
I will not stop until I’m rotting and dead.
This is a graveyard.
I am a graveyard.

Fighting demons is a little hard when they’re in your own head.
Drilling through my sanity unsatisfied, until you’re dead.

I have fallen down the path to my end.
I will not stop until I’m rotting and dead.
This is a graveyard.
I am a graveyard.

All these demons are in my head
I don’t want this in my head.
Drilling through my sanity.
Soon I’ll be dead.

Why do I feel so comfortable
with this barrel pressed against my skull I’m ready to go.
Why do I feel so comfortable?
Track Name: Mirrors
Oh God, what have I become.
I’m not the loving man you put me here to be.
I’ve been caught up in this game of life.
I don’t even know who I am anymore.

When I look into these mirrors I don’t know who I am.

I don’t know who I am anymore
The world keeps on taking away from me
I don’t know how to give anymore
I’ve let my love turn to hate.

Oh, how i’ve forgotten that your son gave me everything.
Oh, how i’ve forgotten that your son gave everything away.

I should be no different. I’m here to love like he did.

Oh God, what have I become.
I’m not the loving man you put me here to be.
I’ve been caught up in this game of life.
I don’t even know who I am anymore.

Who am I to be distracted from the one true thing in this life that is forever.
You are forever, and I’m forever yours.
You are forever, and I’m forever yours.
