– Cantonment (2011) –


Tainted
• Intro
System initialized, [U-D-R] mainframe online, leaf m9a6x active response engaged.

• Extended intro (everything mix / album version)
Sometimes you get, what you want. Sometimes they even ask, what you want. Then you realize how insignificant you are. When you understand, you mean nothing. Soon you’ll come to realize as I have. The entire human fucking race, is nothing, but a virus!

• Verse 1
I don’t want your sympathy, please don’t ease my pain. I just want the only thing that I could never gain.

Turn off all the lights now, hide yourself from me.  You can’t show me anything that I don’t want to see.

• Chorus
You can take the anger that is growing in my darkened eyes.  You will find your answers deep within this hallowed mind.  Everything I give you is completely tainted an impure.  I am not the only one that would give my life for you.

• Bridge
Emotions turn to hate, confusion takes it’s place, the future can’t be set, though we cease and we submit.

You understand that you mean nothing…

• Verse 2
I don’t want the truth from you, please just tell me lies.  I can’t take your honesty before I close my eyes.  Wasted youth, stolen dreams, everything’s so clear.  I wont believe anything that I could ever hear.


Enemy
• Chorus
Break the chains free yourself, desperate times change your mind, I don’t know about me, I’m looking for a new beginning with out you, reason now makes no sense, only you can see your enemy, looking out for you.

One more thing, look around, all the smiling faces stare you down, feeling trapped, feeling lost, whichever way you go is up to you, fade away find yourself, everything is not which once it seemed, take a breath sit back down, only you can see that part of me.

• Verse 1
She had this little smile, so innocent, it was all just a lie, made men cry.  There’s something you should know, even if you’re feeling lucky don’t take her home.  She’ll break your heart and that’s just the start, everyone’s had a go so don’t fall for it.

• Chorus intro
So stand up and scream you fucking whore. So stand up and scream, you need it more.

• Verse 2
He said she said, what about what we said?  Lemme just break this down.  I’m crawling on the floor oh baby just one more.  I can’t back out like a tactical rout, I get back on my feet.  So much for this time, I wont be pulled back in so fuck you.


Last Chance
• Verse 1
Time is wasted, life is wasted.  This human sacrifice, it’s all out war.

• Verse 2
Blood is spilled on holy ground.  When will they ever learn.  If they choose to fight this war.  You will be the only one standing.

Drink your fill of blood and wine.  I know they will never learn.  When this war is left behind, I am left the only one standing.

• Chorus
This was your last chance.
One more chance to live.
This was your last chance.
One more chance to give.
All out war!

• Chorus 2
This was our last chance.
Now I’m forced to fight, forced to die.
This was our last chance.
Now I have to choose what’s wrong and what’s right.
This was our last chance.
My hands are covered in the blood of the young.
This was our last chance.
Too far gone to be undone.

This was the last chance.


State of Oppression
•Verse 1
I’m waking up but I can’t tell is it’s just a dream.
They sought to control me, to silence me.
But these things wont just disappear.

•Pre-Chorus
This darkened sky is what we’ve made
for ourselves to believe in.
Our false sense of security is crumbling
under the weight of reality.

•Chorus
I will not submit to this state of oppression.
Their voice will not pass through me.
These may be the ways of sedition.
This is what they call the price of freedom.
This war is just a distraction.
They want you to fear what they have created.
Now is the time to build their empire.
This is what they call the price of freedom.

•Verse 2
It all sounded so good to me.
Ending a threat to democracy.
Though it didn’t quite happen that way.
Now we’re learning this all the hard way.


Cleanse the Sun
• Verse 1
One more change for victory is lost within the storm – I have no memory – where do we begin.

• Verse 2
No more light surrounds this place – I feel no fear – ever so slowly my mind begins to clear.

• Chorus
No, time for my awareness – hidden by the storm – I call out your name.
Though, you don’t hear my cries – drowned out by the wind – this was my final chance.

• Verse 3
Some things are better left unsaid – The memories are fighting back again.

• Verse 4
Sometimes I feel alive – Stripped free of all my doubts and I will pray the rain will cleanse the sun.


Song for the Dead
• Verse 1
Why am I here in this place? No one has the answers.
Even though I’m trapped down here. Stranded in the cold.

• Chorus
One last call for victory, we all dance in harmony.
There are things you should have said.
It’s too late now for the dead.
It’s too late now, far too long, for the dead.

• Verse 2
I seek the truth within the sand. There are no more answers.
I hold my life within my hand. Stranded by society.
