Track Name: Intro
Why do we settle for nothing?
There's so much more than this
These eyes see nothing but failure in a life of ignorance.
This life, this heart beats
To the song of a bigger picture
This life, worth something
More than I can understand
Track Name: Dying Breed
So hear me out, I'm nothing like you thought I was.
When the bombs are falling, and the ash falls from the sky,
Who then will save you?
My heart has ached for so long for the words to come to my mind.
We are the change.
Hear me out now, My words are here to stay.
We are the living change, this generation.
These are my words to you, hold fast.
These are the moments that we must show them.
These are my words to you.

But still today, you see us as a dying breed.
You never thought you would see the day when you would have to listen.
I will fight back.
I can be anything, I'm nothing like you thought I was.
Track Name: Expose
Take back my life
This is where i make a change to realize what i've done

Through these years and through these scar,
battle wounds of who i was
come to take me back to the depths from which I've come.
Never looking back, I've come to realize
that ill never be a perfect man in any shape or form.

May i boast in my weakness?
Any fool can say they're strong,
but can you say that you're humble?
Can you say that you're wise?

What does your heart expose?
When was the last time that your heart felt numb
and your problems found the perfect way to haunt you?
We're all just slave to our own selfish ambition.

Im tired of running, im facing this today.
If everything was simple and everything was alright,
I would take this life for granted let it go in the black of night.

But we know this world is ruthless we see the pain inside our heart.
Walk around with burdened shoulders and let our lives just fall apart.
Even when this world forsakes me with the wind against my face,
I'll remember where my heart lies nothing here will make me stay.

I'll remember where my heart lies nothing here will make me stay.

Set sail today, take back my life
I leave this pain for a better place
Track Name: Apathy
These are the times we live in
No escape

My friends my life my family
My choice my gods my enemies
My faults my war my apathy
My faults my war my apathy

These are the times I live in
Apathetic to the strife in my heart
Not ashamed to admit I deserve these scars
I am numbed by the pain that I've caused
Unashamed I always carry on
These times will carry on

My friends my life my family
My choice my gods my enemies
My faults my war my apathy
My faults my war my apathy

I'm not afraid to admit that I'm constantly in doubt

Apathetic to the strife in my heart
Not ashamed to admit I deserve these scars
I am numbed by the pain that I've caused
Unashamed I always carry on
Track Name: Youth Struggle
This night this night
underneath the open sky
take our minds back to the moments and the times we felt alive.
This time this time
years of youth will pass us by.
Always living for those moments
will we ever feel alive?

I cant believe how crushed i am
from the weight of responsibility,
When everyone around you glares,
when every move you make gets stares.
We kill ourselves just to stay alive
and to be a man you must lose your mind.
Human mass production.
How could i love a life so scarce?

Our culture is a producer of mass conformity
and if you want to feel acceptance
you must go blind.
I refuse to be molded by the norms of society.
I wont be another walking dead man.

I'll thrive I'll thrive I'll thrive 'til the day i die.
Getting older never meant dying young.
All the free where are you?
May your actions and your voice be heard.

Getting older never meant dying young
All the free where are you?
I'll thrive.
