Track Name: The Villain
So now I'm branded as the Villain, pitchforks are all gathered they're storming up my mountains
It's easy to hide, it's easy to brand me as that guy
Who took everything from you, you've got to see your consequences
You made your bed, lie in it

Yeah you got to be a man, take responsibility
You want to be a man, don't try to be tough

Your unsolved history, bleeding through your walk
You don't know me, or who the fuck I am
Track Name: Generations
I wake up abandoned, in my childhood home
All I've lost documented around me
Those I've lost cemented in my god damn memories

Circa 8 years ago
When we lost you
We lost ourselves
I know I lost myself

To make it back
I had to fight
I had to claw
I had to crawl

To make it back
I had to burn it all down
Yeah
To make it back
I had to burn it all down

I don't how to pick myself up
When everytime you do, you knock me right in my shins
You knock me to my knees
Everytime I fight, everytime I crawl, everytime I claw
I wake up, and I start again
I start again

You were the glue
You kept us together
Yeah
Just look at how we turned out

Part of me is glad, you never seen all this
The other part, wishes you would stop all this

I don't how to pick myself up
When everytime you do, you knock me right in my shins
You knock me to my knees
Everytime I fight, everytime I crawl, everytime I claw
I wake up, and I start again
I start again
I start again

I wake up abandoned and everything is burning
All the memories, they're all burning

It's all gonna burn
We're gonna burn it down
We're all gonna burn it down
'Cause I want it gone, yeah I want it gone

We're all gonna burn it down
When everytime you do, you knock me right in my shins
You knock me to my knees
Everytime I fight, everytime I crawl, everytime I claw
I wake up, and I start again
I start again
I start again
Track Name: Lineage (ft. Jacob Bradley of Admella)
Bound by blood, but we're torn by hate
Our mentors will be spinning in their fucking graves
We've said hurtful things, but you've crossed the line
Burning bridges, you've lost your blood line

You fought with everything
You fought with everyone
You let your life get fucked
They woke up and now they're gone

They're fucking gone

Have you forgotten all they taught us?
You've lost your way
Have you forgotten all they taught us?
It'll never be the fucking same
Have you forgotten all they taught us?
You have no god damn right, to bare their name

I found support, you've never dreamed of
He found support you've never dreamed of
We stick through think and thin
And please, realise, the true impact of what you did

He's not here to spit in your face
I'm just here to prove my place

I'm not here, to prove I'm above you
In his life there's no first place
All that's left to say
Is fuck you

Have you forgotten all they taught us?
You've lost your way
Have you forgotten all they taught us?
It'll never be the fucking same
Have you forgotten all they taught us?
You have no god damn right, to bare their name
Track Name: Years
You're supposed to be the one who drowns my demons away
But what can I do, when you're the one creating them?
You're such a prominent thing
How do I escape it

I'm sick of your mark
I'm sick of your presence
I'm sick of the things, that stuck in my mind
I need you gone, I need you out of my life

Oh I ran but I couldn't hide

I couldn't hide

So I'll conquer my demons, but not on my own
I just want you to know, I'm better off this way
I'm better off this way

I don't care how many Years pass
I don't care how many phone calls you have left
I don't care how sorry you are
There is a toll for everything you did, and as it just ticked over
I finally get to breathe

I didn't write this song, waiting for you to apologize
I just want you to know, I don't want the memories

You're supposed to be the one who drowns my demons away
But what can I do, when you're the one creating them?
You're such a prominent thing
How do I escape it

I don't care how many Years pass
I don't care how many phone calls you have left
I don't care how sorry you are

I don't care how many Years pass
I don't care how many phone calls you have left
I don't care how sorry you are
There is a toll for everything you did, and as it just ticked over
I finally get to breathe
Track Name: Dead Presidents
What about Columbine?
I know the innocence that died
What about Colorado, will the dark night rise?

It starts with one act of neglect
And another setback what do you expect
A monster is born from disappointment
A killer is born from abuse

He's already got a gun, you just gave him a motive
You'll act like you didn't see this coming, you'll all act surprised
You seek freedom at any price, you said you'd do something you said you'd help
But 5 months later, what are we doing with our lives?

What about Columbine?
I know the innocence that died
What about Colorado, will the dark night rise?

You sacrifice the people
You sacrifice the kids
The future of this world, for a stupid constitution

You put the blood of our sins, on the hands of Dead Presidents
The death of the innocence will rest on them
Are they gonna clean up the mess? Yeah, they're gonna clean up the mess
Tell me what it means, to be American

It starts with one act of neglect
And another setback what do you expect
A monster is born from disappointment
A killer is born from abuse
One bullet, through the heads of our children
Woah, what a wonderful lesson
So what if, what if we rethink this?
