Track Name: 1. Redemption
These flames keep burning faster
We all deal with disaster
Shooting swift like a crossbow
A wild fire that I watch from the front row
I got a thing for redemption
But I've been holding on for to long
This fire longs for confession
It shapes the dark, straight into bright white
Adrenaline's taking over
I can't control my emotions
As I rush thru the forest
Little sparks creating explosions
As devastation surrounds us
Passed the point of no return
Primal skills of survival
Overcome what I once learned

Check your pulse, maintain the pace
don't break down
Can't really see with all the sweat
The audience is jeering you
From theyr box
Can't really see with all the sweat

Prove!, prove them wrong
you can make it
Prove!, prove them wrong
Wave!, wave and smile
You fuckers watch this
Wave!, wave and smile

I'll hunt you down, like the prey you are!

Check your pulse, maintain the pace
Trace 'em down
I smell the blood they left behind
I swear to god, smashed into pulp
I still wont break
Until I have theyr heads for prize

Prove!, prove them wrong
you can make it
Prove!, prove them wrong
Wave!, wave and smile
You fuckers watch this
Wave!, wave and smile

I got thirst for blood!
You can never trust a liar
I got thirst for blood
Like a knife thru the heart

I got thirst for blood
You can never trust a liar
Like a knife they stick right thru your heart
I got thirst for blood
I got thirst for blood
I got thirst for blood

Until I have theyr heads for prize!
Track Name: 2. Loyal Opposition
My eyes fail looking for your god,
I just don't understand
what goes inside their hearts and minds to take it all so blindly
Why are we taught to find salvation
In their book of salms
and now deep waters rise
you settle, you sink
the flood engulfs you
We are the loyal opposition
We are the loyal opposition
We are the loyal, we are the loyal opposition
They're all slaves at the hands of god
They're all slaves at the hands of god
Brainwashed, you're blind folded
but still I pray for you
You can't silence our hearts
You can't demand our souls
We are not part of the flok
We can deal with life on our own
Track Name: 3. Born Headfirst
Wounds I got from falling of
Those prepared me for the grave
But tomorrow's gonna be a brighter day
My soul is suitable to save
This journey took me somewhere I had never been

I won't show regret for anything, I'll do the best i can.
Never surrender 2x
I'm not sorry for trying to believe, I'll do the best i can.
Never surrender 1x

It takes a rude awakening
To make you take a look and shake you when you should be shook
Despiste sometimes being scared as shit
To make it to the morning light
Not moving backwards and become a tragedy

I won't show regret for anything, I'll do the best i can.
Never surrender 2x
I'm not sorry for trying to believe, stop taking me for granted
Never surrender 2x

I'm keeping focus on my goals
To make it to the morning light
Bouding my mind and soul in one
Taking control of my own life

The weak can never forgive
The weak will never believe
Track Name: 4. To The Bone
How do i begin to describe it?
Between job, house, chores
Sleeping three hours a night
Out of bed like I took up a fight
They could have been gentle
I wonder what will be of me
Will I get where I want to be
Racionalyzing took to a whole nother level

I killed a lion and ate his heart

The stream guides my bones, the stream guides my bones!
I wont show remorse, this means war at last
The stream guides my bones, the stream guides my bones!
I wont show remorse, i wont show regret

I went down to the river
flowing out to the sea
I'm heading into the ocean
let the spirits swallow me

finish the journey and see
You wont remember my words
But you will dwell on my silence
They could have been gentle
Energy bar back on red
underwater, short on oxigen
Coming up locked to bottom

The stream guides my bones, the stream guides my bones!
I wont show remorse, this means war at last
The stream guides my bones, the stream guides my bones!
I wont show remorse, i wont show regret

I went down to the river
flowing out to the sea
I'm heading into the ocean
let the spirits swallow me

Still it hurts inside, my wing man, my partner in crime

You died
Track Name: 5. Burning High
always in need of help
hoping for things to come around
can't get your mind straight
finding your self in this damn mess
how long? Are You prepared? without feeling black and blue
the struggle is real

RISE! cut the chord avoid being under
RISE! hold the wheel thru this thunder storm
RISE! cut the chord avoid being under
Take the challenge

Keep the fire burning high!
Look above and behold
light up torches
Go to war and prevail

Keep the fire burning high!
Look above and behold
light up torches
go to war

you'll have to draw the line
between the past and what may come
can't get your mind straigth
finding your self in this damn mess

how long? Are You prepared? without feeling black and blue
the struggle is real

RISE! cut the chord avoid being under
RISE! hold the wheel thru this thunder storm
RISE! cut the chord avoid being under
Take the challenge


Keep the fire burning high!
Look above and behold
light up torches
Go to war and prevail
Keep the fire burning high!
Look above and behold
light up torches
go to war

Keep the fire burning high!
Look above and behold
light up torches
Go to war and prevail
Keep the fire burning high!
Look above and behold
light up torches
go to war

WE HELD OUR CHILDREN AND SAID GOODBYE
thru times we've proven strong
With love and sacrifice
I wont make truce just yet, I'll fight with my bare hands

NEVER FORGET
Track Name: 6. Symptoms
I too, was young and tender, still trying to find my track
I watch the world moving without me
When my entire life was covered in black

give me the right moment, to think and move on
I’ll be the one who starts brave, when all my hope is gone

now, The world crumbles arround me
destroying every bit of faith in my self
So, so what if i break down sometimes
but, I'm not willing to put my hands down

I tryed to stand at the edge of the world
but found my self standing all alone
REFUSE REFUSE REFUSE
Cuz when you stand at the edge of the world
There is nothing left but the fear of falling

I smash things and declare a riot
I build confidence and strenght to continue
this rat race can't change my soul
I smash things and declare a riot
I build confidence and strenght to continue
this rat race can't change my soul

I'm finding strenght in places I don't know
ripping my heart only to find salvation
I'm keeping strenght deep inside my damned soul
after the storm there's something to look up for

I keep the fire, deep inside
