Track Name: Let it Roll
Used to hang out by the record store
Vacant now, there's a sign on the door
The alleyways and underpasses, they don't care
Ya boys always gonna be welcome 'round here
To burn to ash or to accept decay
To burn out now or to fade away
Seems to me there's a decision to make
But whats the point in trying?

LET IT ROLL, LET IT ROLL
AIN'T NO FRICTION IN CONTROL
LET 'EM DIE, LET 'EM DIE
IF THEY DON'T WANNA BE ALIVE
LET IT GO, LET IT GO
ITS OKAY TO EASE UP THE LOAD
AND THERE'S A TRUTH YOU CANT DENY
IT MIGHT BURN BUT IT DON'T LIE

Once sworn, never live this life in chains
Only way out, with the pistol blastin'
Used to be solid, man now you're just plastic
Cold and brittle, so easy to crack it
To burn to ash or to accept decay
To burn out now or to fade away
Come the time there's a decision to make
You better make it right

LET IT ROLL, LET IT ROLL
AIN'T NO FRICTION IN CONTROL
LET 'EM DIE, LET 'EM DIE
IF THEY DON'T WANNA BE ALIVE
LET IT GO, LET IT GO
ITS OKAY TO EASE UP THE LOAD
AND THERE'S A TRUTH YOU CANT DENY
IT MIGHT BURN BUT IT DON'T LIE

Bust down
This is it
No luck
Tough shit
Trash rains from above
Better hold on tight to the ones you love

This one goes out to all the leather-clad punks
Who've never met a dream that they couldn't fuck up
But are still hangin' here, still hangin' tough
Better hold your head up high

LET IT ROLL, LET IT ROLL
AIN'T NO FRICTION IN CONTROL
LET 'EM DIE, LET 'EM DIE
IF THEY DON'T WANNA BE ALIVE
LET IT GO, LET IT GO
ITS OKAY TO EASE UP THE LOAD
AND THERE'S A TRUTH YOU CANT DENY
IT MIGHT BURN BUT IT DON'T LIE
Track Name: Tell Me Again
I got a mind
I got a brain
I got a way
Never the easy way, I know
Nothing to show
Nothing to offer
I'm telling you so

So you'll tell me again
Tell me again
Tell me you're the answer to the puzzle, and then
Tell me again
Tell me again
Tell me again

You know every time you come around
Remind me that whats lost can always be found
If i wander the streets
No matter where I roam
I've always got a reason to come back to your door

So tell me again
Tell me again
Tell me that you'll be there 'til the bitter end
Tell me again
Tell me again

Its like I've always got one foot in the gutter
We've got mountains high between us
But you're all i think about
And I just want you to know

Feels like some kind of beacon, maybe some kind of sign
Some kind of never-ending rock and roll youth
Don't you wanna play it safe and die old?
Hell no
Don't ever quit, don't let 'em change your mind
tell 'em, go ahead and keep your hand me down noose
Don't you wanna fit right into that mold?
Hell no
So tell me again
Tell me again
Tell me again

Don't wanna be a victim here
Face an army on my own
Don't wanna be some assembly line, a mindless, thoughtless drone

I got a mind
I got a brain
I got a way
Back to you is the only way I wanna go
Hold fast, get ready
Gonna give it another go

So tell me again
Tell me again
Tell me that you'll be there 'til the bitter end
Tell me again
Tell me again

Its like I've always got one foot in the gutter
Like we've got mountains high between us
But you're all i think about
And I just want you to know

Feels like some kind of beacon, maybe some kind of sign
Some kind of never-ending rock and roll youth
Don't you wanna play it safe and die old?
Hell no
Don't ever quit, don't let 'em change your mind
Tell 'em, go ahead and keep your hand me down noose
Don't you wanna fit right into that mold?
Hell no

So tell me again
Tell me again
Tell me again
Track Name: If We Shout Enough
In spite of the deadly spider
Inside of you, inside of me
Been trapped in a deadly web
That was never built to set us free

What is real passion?
Oh, I don't know
To struggle on with odds near zero?
What is real power?
Well, that ones tough
But I think maybe we can find out
If we shout enough

An old man keeps on chasing
His calloused hands start to bleed,
Hes proven, hes unbroken
Drags his bones up the street

What is real passion?
Oh, I don't know
To struggle on with odds near zero?
What is real power?
Well, that ones tough
But I think that maybe we can find out
If we shout enough

If we shout enough
If we shout enough
If we shout enough

Harbor here
A little solace you can find
Leave it here
A big ol' fossil to remind
Feel the heat risin' up from the city
Lights and fire
Madness and fury
Sometimes the righteous path leads to an early grave
But douse that flame of rebellion, boy
And you will die a slave
You're alive
And its hard to find harmony
If you lose your mind
Its justified
Totally
Track Name: Scale the Wall
I write you, feeling so defenseless
Wrong side of these barbed wire fences
Exiled from my domain
Dying in the desert, waiting on the rain
I'm tired of sitting here complainin'
Maybe you could come bash my brain in
People say that the years fly by
I've got seventeen reasons why that is a lie

Hammer came down
Felt the shock run deep into my core
I might be rottin' in here
But I'm not sorry to them at all
And we're all just trying to scale the wall

Save me from these small minded, hateful beings
Who see what they're told to see
I couldn't conform and I never would crack
They said get out of here and don't you ever come back
They never saw me
All they saw was black clothes, black hair, black

Hammer came down
Felt the shock run deep into my core
I might be rottin' in here
But I'm not sorry to them at all
And we're all just trying to scale the wall

Lyin' down low
Snakin' through the grass
Slither, Slither
Wait for me to pass
Now suffocate
Deny me of whats real
Not to think and not to feel
Lyin' down low
Snakin' through the grass
Slither, Slither
Wait for me to pass
Now suffocate
Deny me of whats real
Not to think and not to feel
But I can feel
I can feel
I can feel
I can feel

In my dreams, I hear a million voices, loud
Give your outcast here
We'll take them in now
In my dreams, I hear a million voices, loud
Give your outcast here
We'll take them in now

Its possible
To scale the wall
To believe you've got a corner, after all
After all
After all
If it buys just a little more time
Track Name: Here I Stand
Packin' my bags, gonna head for the coast
If this isn't real, maybe I don't wanna know
I've thought about how I might meet you there
Maybe my nicest shoes on a rocking chair

Times like these, you look in the mirror
Don't like what you see
Floor full of glass
Fists got a gash
There's no sympathy
Talk the talk
Better walk the walk
Better try and pretend you're invincible

Its been a long time comin'
Here I stand
Tomorrow there will be another blood stain on my hand
You said the sun never shines over our land

I've lost my vision
Its no joke
I keep blackin out
There's no hope
I dropped her picture
I won't miss her
Nah, sister, I'll race you over the edge

Times like these, runnin' dead last
There's no charity
Come up on a car, try and syphon out some gas,
That tanks on E
Times like these, I think I outta pray
But I ain't ever prayed
And I don't really think that anyone is listening, so

Its been a long time comin'
Here I stand
Tomorrow there will be another blood stain on my hand
You said the sun never shines over our land
You said it all

Its been a long time comin'
Here I stand
Its been a long time comin'
Here I stand
Its been a long time comin'
Here I stand
Here I stand
Here I stand
Here I stand

My world is ending
Ain't got no rules
Don't break my back like you always do
my opportunity to run and hide
My opportunity to carry the fire
The open judgments you express
All the falsehoods you embrace
Always put me to the test
The demons in my head gotta rest
Gotta rest

Its been a long time comin'
Here I stand
Tomorrow there will be another blood stain on my hand
You said the sun never shines over our land
You said it all
Track Name: Follow
I could offer all I have to you
But you'd try to steal it anyway
Our war paint is the same shade of blue
But our missions aren't the same

Follow? Oh, no

I will tear down your royal tower
Ill blow it all away
You can mourn by the epic fire
And think up something smart to say

Follow? Oh, no
Chambers hollow

Until the end
I will defend
My pride and my confidence
You can run me through but I will not give that to you

Follow? Oh, no

Until the end
I will defend
My pride and my confidence
You can run me through but I will not give that to you
Until the end
I will defend
My pride and my confidence
You can run me through but I will not give that to you
