Track Name: Broadway Riot
tonight we take back what’s ours
tonight we burn this city down
tonight it’s our time, our time

let’s go

downtown burn down
complete system shut down
it won’t be the last you see of us tonight
this gasoline just needs a light (just one spark)
sending smoke signals into the sky
to let em know that we’ve arrived
and there’s gonna be a riot tonight

uptown showdown
hold up this town
stand up for what we think is right
and we’re lookin for a fight
the city skyline illuminates the night
to let em know we’re alive
and your gonna see a riot tonight

tonight it’s all torn down
no politics we’ll stand our ground
tonight it’s all torn down
tonight tonight tonight
and this is, this is a broadway riot
tonight tonight tonight

midtown breakdown
broken bottles thrown ‘round
politicians running for their lives
who needs guns when we’ve got knives (we’ve got knives)
sending smoke signals into the sky
to let em know we’ve arrived
and there’s gonna be a riot tonight

tonight it’s all torn down
no politics we’ll stand our ground
tonight it’s all torn down
tonight tonight tonight
and this is, this is a broadway riot
tonight tonight tonight

let’s tear this city down
and we’ll all sing
we tore this city down

tonight it’s all torn down
no politics we’ll stand our ground
tonight we’ll tear this city down
tonight tonight tonight
and this is, this is a broadway riot
tonight tonight tonight
and this is, this is a broadway riot
tonight tonight tonight
Track Name: Old Routines
i’m stuck here on repeat

every once in awhile
i wish the world wasn’t so damn tired
spinning in it’s own tracks, not going anywhere
i’m waiting for that tiny little spark
igniting progress, releasing us from the dark

this conversation’s heading south
are you even listening

this is exactly what we need
an escape from our old routine
and nothing is exactly what it seems
when we’re stuck here on repeat, repeat

every once in awhile
i see through everything outside
moving in slow motion and passing us all by
i’m waiting for that simple little sign
inciting protest of automation by design

this conversation’s heading south
are you even listening

this is exactly what we need
an escape from our old routine
and nothing is exactly what it seems
when we’re stuck here on repeat

when we’re stuck here
repeat, repeat
when we’re stuck here
repeat, repeat

this is exactly what we need
to escape from our old routine
there’s nothing left here for me
i’m stuck here on repeat
Track Name: Dying World
in a dying world it’s no surprise
to wake up and find we live a lie

we slept all night on this dirt floor
as remnants of a bitter war
but in our hearts we have more resolve
than society and their stares can ever dissolve

our first mistake -
we lost control of our home

in a dying world it’s a surprise
to wake up and find we’re still alive
second chances don’t come twice
to our kind

so hold your dreams close to your chest
and keep low as we make our exit
bonded in exile, we’ll turn new leaves
build again and leave these palaces empty

our first mistake -
we lost control of our home

in a dying world it’s a surprise
to wake up and find we’re still alive
second chances don’t come twice
to our kind

we lost our home

in a dying world
it’s no surprise
to wake up and find we live a lie

in a dying world it’s a surprise
to wake up and find we’re still alive
second chances don’t come twice
to our kind
Track Name: Not Today
one thousand reasons for us to relax
one thousand more for us to take a stand with
they have these targets on the middle of our backs
i’m not about to let these cowards take us down

survival, it’s dirty
the fit will brag

but not today
we kill in our own way
wipe out this plague before
they consume everything

one million reasons for us not to tip our hand
one million more to just shoot them in the back
filthy virus they take everything we have
when they deserve less than nothing

survival, it’s dirty
we were here first

but not today
we kill in our own way
wipe out this plague before
they consume everything
it’s not genocide, we claim self defense
population control, we only shot back first

survival, it’s dirty
cutthroat killers, anxious triggers
spineless liars and thieves
cutthroat killers with anxious triggers
gutless, timid and weak
but not today, we kill in our own way
but not today, we kill in our own way

but not today
we kill in our own way
wipe out this plague before
they consume everything
it’s not genocide, we claim self defense
population control, we only shot back first
Track Name: Live Out Loud
i’m not going back this time
i’ve crossed the line
and now i’m never thinking twice 
about this life i’ve left behind
one hand held in the air
with a fist that’s just and right
and the other holding you so close
and always by my side

our time is now
we’ve gotta fight together
our day has come
won’t last forever so i scream

say it loud, say it loud
these are the times that count
don’t ever let em think you’re down and out
say it loud say it loud
these are the times that count
when the silence falls it’s time to live out loud

let’s not push this fear aside
are we wasting all our time
hoping things will change without
standing for what’s right
our flag kept in the air
against a darkened sky
we march as a band of brothers
representing all that’s free

our time is now
we’ve gotta fight together
our day has come
won’t last forever so i scream

say it loud, say it loud
these are the times that count
don’t ever let em think you’re down and out
say it loud, say it loud
these are the times that count
when the silence falls it’s time to live out loud
time to live out loud, time to live out loud

say it loud, say it loud
these are the times that count
don’t ever let em think you’re down and out
say it loud, say it loud
these are the times that count
when the silence falls it’s time to live out loud
time to live out loud
stand strong
when the silence falls it’s time to sing out loud
say it loud, say it loud
these are the times that count
when the silence falls it’s time to live out loud
