Another Day.I sit here catatonic No other way. I find it quite ironic Believe that I can change things but crushed from what my life brings Another day and i'm left standing still We think we're fighting at the system Punkrock in fact we always miss them we work from day to day to live the right way we knew that it was wrong this way Contradiction. Can I practice what I preach? Repetition. Bound by what is in my reach There's no other way, we live from day to day No hope or aspiration, a life annihilation We think we're fighting at the system Punkrock? In fact we always miss them we work from day to day to live the right way we knew that it was wrong this way We're fighting from the inside We hope you'll do what is right We're fighting from the inside We hope you'll do what is right We're fighting from the inside We'll burn this mother fucker, to the ground We think we're fighting at the system Punkrock? Infact we always miss them We work from day to day, to live the right way We knew that it was wrong this way.

Deathcard 03:30
What the fuck are we here for? Have we been dealt the death card? With both feet firmly on the ladder We’ve got to, got to kick it harder Have we been dealt the death card? Have we been dealt the death card? Do you hear this transmission? Got to break this repetition Do you hear this transmission? Got to break this repetition Have we been dealt the death card Have we been dealt the death card Never never.. give up I try so hard to make things work Too many battles to brawl yeah I’m in a war that’s never won. A war With my Myself A war With my Myself You choose the wars we lose the lives Your propaganda and filthy lies Too many dead and there’s no prize These are things that I despise.. This is our time

Manipulated 02:14
What's left of you? The girl I knew What's left of you? The girl I knew Your individuality drained away from your shell Your confidence and your happiness feigned I fear for what you’ve become trapped with nowhere to run I fear for what you've become trapped your life's come undone Their good nature is not gonna wash manipulation so far from the truth I fear for what you’ve become trapped with nowhere to run I fear for what you've become trapped your life's come undone What's left of you The girl I knew What's left of you The girl I knew

Just stop Imposing on me I’m not the man that you want me to be I’ve walked a path that you have not seen Real for me but for you; a dream Ill take a pause; you’ll take a break Everything you want just always take I’ve wised right up, I’ve called your bluff Its what I’ve found I AM ENOUGH We never change; we live the life We find our path. Avoid the strife Just calm it down. We are enamoured By turning chicken shit into chicken salad You make the point to criticise Will I be good in your eyes You were gone when I showed my rage You’re not a kid; just act your age Keep your bullshit away from here Its fucking grey when you are near All this posture has to stop Cause when I leave ILL BE ON TOP We never change; we live the life We find our path. Avoid the strife Just calm it down. we are enamoured By turning chicken shit into chicken salad We never change. We live the life.

Do you ever go back to the thoughts you once had Did you make a break or leave the good for the bad You’ll never change the way that life deals your fate Unless you go out and give it all before too late The path you take defines your fate Don’t focus on past mistakes Only you can change the choice you made You’ve got to shout out loud don’t be afraid Don’t pay attention to those that put doubt in your mind Don’t give a fuck and break out from the daily grind Cast fears aside and run with life in its stride These days are yours only you’ll instil your pride The path you take defines your fate Don’t focus on past mistakes Only you can change the choice you made You’ve got to shout out loud don’t be afraid Don't Be Afraid

I am looking forward You are not the same Relinquishing our past mistakes But you still hold the blame (LET IT GO) Striving ever onward Though it breaks our bond Your static nature push aside so we can move along What the fuck just happened We drift for evermore Embrace the new beginning Get up off the floor You are looking backward I still have a claim It was you who made mistakes deserving of the blame (FUCK NO) You are just forgetting Was you who broke the bond My static nature builds me back From violence and beyond What the fuck just happened We drift for evermore Embrace the new beginning Get up off the floor Your way My Way We’ll stay Together

Standing toe to toe These are who we know Looking out for this 'coz when the darkness hits feel the energy explode it's the silence we corrode but right now it is our time what's mine is yours and yours is mine just place your faith and you'll be fine certain things have changed faces rearranged but just wait and see the time and place right here feel the energy explode its the silence we corrode but right now it is our time what's mine is yours and yours is mine just place your faith and you'll be fine

We gotta stand for something coz without this we're nothing without hope we're dying but it won't stop us trying looking for a sense of purpose that is what our life has taught us grasping all that we can handle never pull back outstretched hands Do you breathe the same air as me? The things you say I cant believe Do you breathe the same air as me? It's time to start. Set your mind free You gotta stand for something without this you're nothing without hope you're dying but it won't stop us trying looking for a sense of purpose that is what your life has taught us grasping all that you can handle never pull back outstretched hands Do you breathe the same air as me? The things you say; I can't believe Do you breathe the same air as me? It's time to start. Set your mind free With friends like these who needs enemies?

When will I see the day when good luck comes my way So many times I’ve come so close but not today I stand waiting at the airport when my ship is coming in I missed the boat so many times I want my journey to begin Always waiting. So frustrating Static motion. Keeping me here Always waiting. So frustrating Static motion. Keeping me here Drag me down Gotta get my feet back on the ground When will I see the day when good luck comes my way So many times I’ve come so close but not today Setting sail with dreams of getting away from here From all the worries of my days of my days Always waiting So frustrating Static motion Keeping me here Drag me down Gotta get my feet back on the ground

Our eyes are blinded to what we all should see This new regime exists undemocratically and we will strive to fight back til our last breath is spent Just stand here solid with us and stay true till the end We may lose the battle but we'll still win the war 'coz we're standing on the shoulders of those who've gone before We don't expect heroics just effort on the way You made the right decision history will tell this day We stand here firm as brothers lining side by side Looking to the future and all this starts tonight We may lose the battle but we'll still win the war 'coz we're standing on the shoulders of those who've gone before It was you who chose to fight us Your strength will die away You do right to fear us You wanted it this way.
