1. DAYS OF WAR

(Instrumental)




2. CHANGE OR DIE

Let's Go!
This is a battle call
To one to all
The opposition
Who will take the fall

Are you sick of just getting by?
Are you tired of the fucking crying?
Are you looking for a better life?

Change or die
We're looking for the answers of our lives
Tonight
You gotta change or die
The answer is for you to do what's right
Tonight

Are you corrupted
By the status quo?
The repetition
Is kills us all
Is the rat race dragging you down
Are you stuck in that dead end town?
Are you looking for the way out?

Change or die
We're looking for the answers of our lives tonight
You gotta change or die
The answer is for you to do what's right
Tonight

Yeahh!
We won't go down
Not tonight
This is our battle cry
We're ready to fight
We won't go down
Not tonight
This is our battle cry we're ready to fight

Change or die
we're looking for the answers of our lives
Tonight
You gotta change or die
The answer is for you to do what's right
Tonight

Change Or Die!
Change Or Die!




3. HOLLYWOOD WHORE

Hollywood whore
Passed out on the floor
I'm sorry but the party's over

Cocaine nose
And trendy clothes
Gotta send her to rehab
She found out, she's got no soul
But it really doesn't bother her

White trash queen
American dream
Oh, what a role model
Throwin a fit, makin a scene
Like no tomorrow

Hollywood whore
Passed out on the floor
Can't take it no more
I'm sorry, but the party's over

The talk of the town
Is she's goin down
I'm sorry but the party's over now

Awake by noon, drunk by four
Sucked up in the show biz
You're so lame, you're such a bore
I wanna kick your teeth in

Plastic smile to match your style
We can tell ya got a face lift
You're so vain, oh so foul
Become anumber one hit

Hollywood whore
Passed out on the floor
Can't take it no more
I'm sorry, but the party's over

The talk of the town
Is she's goin down
I'm sorry but the party's over

The cameras are gone
And nobody screams
She couldn't survive her fifteen minutes of fame
Her friends are all gone
She's goin' insane
She'll never survive without the money and fame
It's all going down the drain

Hollywood whore
Passed out on the floor
I'm sorry but the party's over

The talk of the town
Is she's goin' down
I'm sorry but the party's over

Hollywood whore
Passed out on the floor
I'm sorry but the party's over

The talk of the town
Is she's goin' down
I'm sorry but the party's over

Wake Up!
The party's over
Wake Up!
The party's over
Wake Up!
The party's over
Wake Up!
The party's over now

Hahahaha
Don't let the door hit ya
Where the good lord split ya honey
Hahahahahaha




4. I ALMOST TOLD YOU THAT I LOVED YOU

You know I love it when your down on yo knees
And I'm a junkie for the way that you please
You shut me up when you swallow me down
My back to the wall your going to town

I almost told you that I love you
Thank God I didn't because it would've been a lie
I say the damnest things, when your on top of me
I almost told you that I love you

I hate to say it but it has to be said
You look so fragile as I fuck with your head
I know it shouldn't but it's getting me on
If sex is the drug then what is the cause

I almost told you that I love you
Thank God I didn't because it would've been a lie
I say the damnest things, when your on top of me
I almost told you that I love you

I'm not the one that you want, I'm not the one that you need
My love is like a fucking disease
You can give me your hand, you can make your demands
I'm the hardest mother fucker to please

Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Hey hey
Ahhh

I almost told you that I love you
Thank god I didn't because it would've been a lie
I say the damnest things, when your on top of me
I almost told you that I love you




5. LIFELINE

When I was a boy
I didn't care about a thing
It was me and this world and a broken dream
I was blaming myself
For all that was going wrong

I was way out there
On the wrong side of town
And the ones that I loved
I started pushing them out
Then I realized
That it was all my fault

I've been looking for a lifeline
For what seems like a lifetime
I'm drowning in the pain
Breaking down again
Looking for a lifeline

So I put out my hand
And I asked for some help
We tore down the walls I built around myself
I was struck by the light
And I fell to the ground

I've been looking for a lifeline
For what seems like a lifetime
I'm drowning in the pain
Breaking down again
Looking for a lifeline

Is there anybody out there?
Can you pull me from this ocean of despair?
I'm drowning in the pain
Breaking down again
Looking for a lifeline

You know a heart of gold
Wont take you all the way
And in a world so cold
Its hard to keep the faith
I’m never gonna fade away!

Yeah!

I've been looking for a lifeline
For what seems like a lifetime
I'm drowning in the pain
Breaking down again
Looking for a lifeline

Is there anybody out there?
Can you pull me from this ocean of despair?
I'm drowning in the pain
Breaking down again
Looking for a lifeline




6. HAD ENOUGH

Turn the channel on the tv
Another boy shot tonight
I can't believe what I am seeing
A body bag, a mother cries
It seems like this is never ending
I've had enough so I decide
The time has come for me to face it
I can't refuse the war inside

'Cause we have had enough
All the violence has touched every part of our lives
Our innocence is gone tonight

I dunnno if I can hide it
I know the truth it's only lies
The president will deny it
The body count, a steady rise
In my head there is a riot
Change the world, no one dies
The time has come for us to fight it
You can't refuse the war inside

'Cause we have had enough
All the violence has touched every part of our lives
Our innocence is gone tonight

'Cause we have had enough
All the violence has touched every part of our lives
Our innocence is gone tonight

I know that you can change the future
I know that we can make it happen

In my head there is a riot
and i dont think that I can fight it

'Cause we have had enough
All the violence has touched every part of our lives
Our innocence is gone tonight

'Cause we have had enough
All the violence has touched every part of our lives
Our innocence is gone tonight

We have had enough
We have had enough
We have had enough




7. LIVE THIS DOWN

I always thought I could trust you
but I guess that's not the case
All the years that I loved you
You were out there playing the games
You didn't think that I would find out
but it was written all over the place
Is it what you really want now
Then get the fuck out of my face

How could you deceive me?
Im begging you to leave me
Go to hell
I'm better off without you
All is well
I'd rather be alone
To have you
To hold you
and never know you
'cause you sold me out
You're never gunna live this down
Never gunna live this down

How do you look in the morror
How do you stand the sight of your face
If you made it any clearer
I could of seen right through the hate
And i'll never think about you
While I'm sleepoing with all of your friends
and I'm hoping that you find out
'cause love is the sweetest revenge

How could you deceive me?
I'm begging you to leave me
Go to hell!
I'm better off without you
All is well
I'd rather be alone
To have you
To hold you
and never know you
'cause you sold me out
You're never gunna live this down
Never gunna live this down

I always thought I could trust you
I always thought I could trust you
GO!
I always thought I could trust you
I always thought I could trust you

So go to hell
I'm better off without you
All is well
I'd rather be alone
To have you
To hold you
and never know you
'cause you sold me out
You're never gunna live this down
Never gunna live this down




8. MARCH OUT OF THE DARKNESS

It feels like the end of the world
It seems like nobody cares
Is it real or am I going insane?
Am I ever gunna change my ways?
Isolated, separated, sick of the mess I created
The pressure keeps rising
When the truth is what I'm fighting

We march out of the darkness
We revel in the flames
The mission is accomplished
We're ready for the change
And the only thing that will set us free
Is living through the pain
And the only thing that I'll guarantee,
We'll never be the same

It feels like I'm still in a cage
And I scream till I'm blue in the face
Is it real or is it a faze?
I think the time has come to change my ways
I'm ready and willing to take what I've been giving
The pressure keeps rising 'cause the truth is
What I'm fighting

We march out of the darkness
We revel in the flames
The mission is accomplished
We're ready for the change
And the only thing that will set us free,
Is living though the pain
And the only thing that I'll guarantee,
We'll never be the same

It's ok, it's alright
Just let go you'll be fine (x2)
It's ok, it's alright
Just let go you'll be fine

We march out of the darkness
We revel in the flames
The mission is accomplished
We're ready for the change
And the only thing that will set us free
Is living through the pain
And the only thing I'll guarantee, we'll never be the same

It's ok it's alright
Just let go you'll be fine (x4)




9. INTO THE LIGHT

This is a warning
My final warning
Go!
This is a warning
My final warning

I got a head full of wreckage
And a mouth full of lies
My mind's in the gutter
I feel like I wanna die
Im the king of nothing
With a broken crown
I've been taking a beating
But I wont back down

Free me from myself
Shot down my mind
A solo revolution
Into the light

This fear is a weakness
And it's wearing me out
I burn in the sickness
It feels like im going down
I deny my affliction
And I run from the light
It's a lonely condition
But you are the one tonight

Free me from myself
Shot down my mind
A solo revolution
Into the light

Fuck all this madness and put it aside
Out of the shadows, into the light
Free me from myself
Shot down my mind
Yeah!

Out of the shadows and into the light (x2)

So free me from myself
Shot down my mind
A solo revolution
Into the light

Fuck all this madness, put it aside
Out of the shadows, into the light
Free me from myself
Shot down my mind
Shot down my mind
Free my from myself




10. CARRY ME

I've been looking for something sacred
Running away from the light.
Gotta burn all the bridges in my head
That lead me away from my life.
I question my own existence,
Question the meaning of life.

[Chorus:]
Why don't you carry me?
Why don't you carry me?
I can't move on
I can't live on
Carry me
Why don't you carry me?
I can't save me
I am crazy

Without you...

It takes horns to hold up my halo
And strength to get through the fight
Now I'm laying my cards on the table
Praying everything will be alright
I question my own existence
Question the meaning of life.

[Chorus]

Without you...

The hardest ones to love
Are the ones that need it most (x4)

[Chorus]

The hardest ones to love
Are the ones that need it most (x4)

Carry me (x4)




11. NIGHTS OF LOVE

The wicked game that you play so good.
I'm falling hard just like you knew I would.
This won't last, it's too good.
I can't stop but I know I should.

[Chorus:]
Days of war into nights of love.
Heaven's on fire and I'm on the run.
Dancing with the devil in the midnight sun.
I'm falling in love
I'm coming undone

And I'm coming undone
(coming undone)

Out of my head in a memory of you.
I'll never forget what you put me through.
It wasn't right, what you did.
But I was just as wrong as you.

[Chorus] (x2)

I'm on the outside looking in
I turned my back on myself again
I'm on the ledge, I'm calling out
Somebody better come and talk me down
I said I'll never do it again
But then I keep on giving in
I gotta turn my world around
Because it keeps on knocking me down
Knocking me down.

I fell hard, It felt good
This won't last, I wish it would
It wasn't right what you did
but I was just as wrong as you

[Chorus]

Days of war into nights of love
Heaven's on fire and I'm on the run
Dancing with the devil in the midnight sun
I'm out of my head
I'm coming undone

I'm on the outside looking in
I turned my back on myself again
I'm on the ledge, I'm calling out
Somebody better come and talk me down
I said I'll never do it again
But then I keep on giving in
I gotta turn my world around
Because it keeps on knocking me down
Knocking me down
Knocking me down
Yeah




12. STATE OF EMERGENCY

There's a movie playing in my head
Bombs falling and children crying
The sun rise and the sky turns red
Load your guns tonight
There's a song playing down the hall
All alone there's an old man dying
I can't feel anything at all
Something isn't right

This is a state of emergency
I've been running from a tragedy
There's a battle raging in my head
I don't wanna be left for dead

This is a state of emergency
Don't wanna be another casulty
There's a cemetary in my head
I don't wanna be left for dead
Left for dead

There's a world standing in my way
Father said that I best stop trying
Stand down it will be ok
You dont have to fight

There's a picture hanging on the wall
Of a memory that I'm denying
Sunsets and the angels fall
Something isn't right

This is a state of emergency
I've been running from a tragedy
There's a battle raging in my head
I don't wanna be left for dead

This is a state of emergency
Don't wanna be another casulty
There's a cemetary in my head
I don't wanna be left for dead

No, don't leave me here alone
I wanna make this on my own
I would rather die than sell my soul
I would rather lie than let you go

There's a voice screaming in my head
Telling me that I best stop crying
Stand up it will be ok
Load your guns tonight

This is a state of emergency
I've been running from a tragedy
There's a battle raging in my head
I don't wanna be left for dead

This is a state of emergency
Don't wanna be another casulty
There's a cemetary in my head
I don't wanna be left for dead

State of emergency
State of emergency
State of emergency
State of emergency
I dont wanna be left for dead
Left for dead!
Left for dead...
