Track Name: Cut The Chord
I am sick
I'm so sick of hearing the same old story
We're fed lies on the screen on the page
'til we're old fat and boring
I won't take part in submission of the heart
Cut the chord you'll realize
Cut the chord see what you find
A profound respect for life
Cut the chord
A profound respect for life
Cut the chord you'll realize
Cut the chord see what you find
Cut the chord and you will find a profound respect for life
Track Name: Bigot
I fail to see a reason why in this day and time we're forced to talk about this
Following twisted lies, religious genocide, it's fundamentalism
No spirituality, this is the death of me
Why can't you see?

What book are you reading, that taught you to hate this strong?
"Don't give into the lies, just open up your eyes, it's written plain and simple"
I think you missed the point all along

Truth is not truth
Words are twisted, eyes are shifted, perspective
You get to choose
Only you decide what's right for you

I'll say it loud you won't forget
Don't preach your fine print to me

Justifying your hate with the cross
It's sickening the souls your crusades cost
I'm no further along in my search for truth
I just want you to know that there is no King behind you

Tolerance isn't hate
Haven't you ever heard of a thing called grace?
I'll say it loud you're such a bigot
I'll say it loud you'll never forget
Track Name: Rage
When I was younger all I had was a dream
I had my sights set on the top
The forces of truth behind me

As I grew older truth quenched my thirst
But it's taken the dream and now I'm left with a curse

Is this really humanities goal?
Replace the life of our bodies
With the promise of a clean soul

Turning Earth into our enemy
Is just a sorry excuse for not seeing the beauty

I won't stand quietly
No obligations to fill
Finally hear the words I've kept inside me

I stand with humanity
To end the timeless lie
That the earth is your enemy

I'm so angry
With the way that the world has treated such a beautiful story
It's all wrong

Stand with me
Let the monuments fall
And rebuild a new age

Rage
Fills me
Rage fills me now
Track Name: Know Nothing
Every single time I try and explain my thoughts to you
You read between the lines searching for a meaning true
You never realize the answers aren't down in ink
I see through the lies and now my brains begun to think

I know nothing, aware of everything
You can't stop me now

I've taken the time to see and question everything
The more and more I see the more I think I know nothing
The realization is key to understanding life around you
There is no enemy or evil force trying to control you

I know nothing, aware of everything
You can't stop me now

Admit you know nothing, become aware of everything
I know nothing
Aware of everything
Track Name: Awakening
Have you taken the time to look into the depths of your own mind
Understanding where your belief lies
Have you taken it in with your own eyes

Or do you

Keep walking the path laid out
Never understanding the pain
Never understanding the doubt

Are you so afraid of what you'll find
Waiting inside your human mind

I can't stand to see this wasting away
The herds been led astray
It is time for Awakening

They're lying to you
No one knows the miracle behind the existence of human life

You've been programed to hate what they have created
You've been programed to ignore the beauty of creation

Awakening, it's happening
Just open your eyes you'll be amazed at what you see
Awakening
Track Name: Question Everything Pt II
This is a call to arms
It's time we all took part and look within our hearts
And question everything we think we know
It's time to realize that this is how we all can grow

For years I've struggled, for years I've raged
Because everywhere I look I'm faced
With the reality that everything around me is never what it seems
Everyone is lying
People are dying
We all hold hatred and justify it
I don't understand how this can all continue on

There is a new age coming
Where humanity can finally live free
To walk in faith with each other
Without being so caught up in idolistic beliefs

Brothers and sisters, we're all in this together
It's time to change our ways
The old ways of human thinking are slowly sinking
Questioners rise and let the new take hold
This is the path of the brave and the bold

This is a call to arms
It's time we all took part and look within our hearts
And question everything we think we know
It's time to realize that this is how we all can grow

Prepare for the new age
