Track Name: Infantry
Never
surrender

How many million can you make?
How many people can you hate?
The televised moron taking the cake
The internet videos numbing your brain
How many dollars can you save?
How many times they dig up the grave?
How many laws are they gonna break
to keep us all from storming the gate?

Kicking in doors, coming in hoards
Don't even know what they're killing 'em for
Land on the shore, settle the score
All of these idiots are waging a war

How many shares can you trade?
How many people burning the flag?
How many things you buy, sell and trade?
How many martyrs you burn at the stake?
How many lies will it take?
How many times you bail out the bank?
All of the shit that they gonna waste
All of the votes getting erased

...

Bang, bang, who to blame
Kill the kid, change your name
No shame, just fame
Dollar bills and diamond rings
Track Name: Sound of the Gun
Identify the target through the grass so high
Give 'em what they're getting, now they're falling from the sky
Flying in Apaches or crawling on their bellies
They gonna attack when the sun is on the rise

Sinking into the ocean, a nation under division
Condition our motivation from the capitol building

To the sound of the gun, to the beat of the drum
Better run, better run, here they come
Using smoke and the mirrors, nothing is what it appears
Everyone, everyone, everyone
Time for revolution

Kill the ones responsible, run 'em down in vehicles
Crowding all the hospitals, murder now is not criminal
Vampires suck the media, police are breaking all the laws
Bodies fertilize the earth, but the crops just get burned

...

The content here has been removed
by the ones that don't approve
Censorship to save your soul
Profits up a million fold
Human life is bought and sold
At fair market price
Identify the target through the grass so high
Track Name: Hands Up
You got the power
You let it go to your head
Fuck the oath that you swore to protect
You got a badge
You got a gun
Let's go crazy, let's have a little fun

Put your hands up, hands up
Or we'll shoot you down
Put your hands up, hands up
Or there will be blood on the ground

You go the power
You let it get out of hand
Fuck the law and make sure that he's dead
You got a badge
Why give a shit
Because you know that they'll never convict

...

Head shot, back shot, gotta make the kill shot
One cop, two cop, gotta rough you up top
Roadblock, gridlock, gotta make a quick stop
Cap pop, watch 'em drop, never gonna get caught
Track Name: Survival Instinct
Stomachs drop, guts will churn
Paid the cost just to watch it burn
Crippled by technology
We aging in the age of anxiety

Even when the loss outweighs the gain
Can you be the one to suffer the pain?

"The time has come," the walrus said
"To lose our many things
Will you be on of the cabbages
Or will you be the king?"

We better than the ones before
Backing down like famine and war
Battle cry, y'all be listening
To the roar of our survival instinct

Courage is lost, when will it return
Heroes chopped into cowards
Not even God can stay safe
When so many else are tryna take his place

Consumer marketing, it's all about the advertising
Want you to believe you can buy from the screen
The person that you wanna be, the one that has everything
Everything you need to ease your suffering

...
Track Name: Revolve
we are the earthquakes, they are the sidewalks
we are the internet, they are the body count
we are the tribes, they are the masons
we are the calculators, they are the basics

they are the helicopter to track you down
we are the hidden snipers, gun 'em to the ground

they are the war profiteers
invaders masquerading as the pioneers
they are the ones make our money disaprear
ballistic militant marketing the fear

we are religion, they are the chaos
without the government, they're the ones who are lost
we are the might, they are the lies
trying to sell us their top line merchandise

...

we are the starving, they are the hungry
ain't enough to brainwash us and take all of our money
we are the minds they think they have control over
they might have an army, but who are the soldiers?
we are the answer, they are the question
they are the runners, we're the message
we are the 99, they are the 1
they are the history to our revolution

...

it's our world, we got to give what we have
it's our world, we got to take it back
