Track Name: Enivrez Vous
We came with nothing
We'll die with nothing
In this life of chains and solitude,
with calloused hands, we take everything


Your face is a distant reverie
Bleed the veins, sow the seeds of infancy
(Don't look back, it's all we've got)

Caught between the folding fatal lines
we are not alone

We're not hopeless
We're not unfamiliar
Our lives are not in vain
Track Name: Collapse
Feed the bellies of ghosts
They're lost but they're not alone
Retrieve the bombs from skies
Recover bodies from flies
Find them lost in translation
from the capitalist equation,
struggling in a new place
that's filled with chemical waste

This city sleeps with regret
from all the times that we've let
killings of innocents seem
part of the American Dream
We know the times soon will change
They find our passiveness strange
Because no action is done
they're finding new ways to run

But this is all that we get?
A system running in debt?
We'll take the cards that we've won
and start a revolution
See explosions of fury
Masses hung by the jury
Secrets of offense
done by civil servants

Information of corporate crimes and genocide
(changed and tamed for the public eye)
Rhetoric nation of constant lies, please hear me cry
(Give me one chance before I die)
Hear me cry

They butchered millions of souls
who've traveled back to their homes
While kids with guns only stare
They're only told not to care
A black mask seals my hate
for those who solely create
transactions with bloody hands
of the alternative stance

This city sleeps with regret
from all the times that we've let
these eyes turn to TV
and spread the numbing disease
They keep our voices unheard
and render actions absurd
And while they lead us astray
we dance among the decay

But this is all that we get?
A debt that's not even met?
While futures crumble to class
this feudal system wont last
See explosions of fury
Masses hung by the jury
Voices too strong to tame
We'll leave the old world in flames

Information of corporate crimes and genocide
(changed and tamed for the public eye)
Rhetoric nation of constant lies, please hear me cry
(Give me one chance before I die)

Hear me cry (cry out)
(We're gonna tear it down, we're gonna take it back)
Track Name: Crisis Carries Us
Let me unfold the broken skin from my wrists
Take a look at what you've done
as I try to escape you

You tell me I'm sorry
I won't ever forgive you
My body is not public property

I turned
I turned away
from you
I wont turn back

You turned and grinned
It's just business
The crises will carry us home

My heart never stopped beating restlessly
just as vultures never end their thirst for blood
Let words of deceit set fire, like matchsticks,
to my dried dead desire

With all my bones
I will not give in
With the blood on your hands
With the stain on my sheets
I wont give in
I will never forgive you
I
wont forget

You tell me your sorry
you wont ever hurt me again
(Do you think I'm crazy?
I'll leave you
I need to be free)

Be free

My sister
My daughter
My mother
My lover
Be free

We will be free
