Track Name: Awake in the Apocalypse
We are the sons of saoirse
and the daughters of the downfall
riot the streets
and set fire to the town hall
No rest until we have spoken
Blood will be shed, and bones will be broken

We are awake
We are awake
We are awake
We are awake

We are the mothers of malice
and the fathers of forgotten
shut down this city
shut down the government and stall it
No rest until we have spoken
Blood will be shed, and bones will be broken

We are awake
We are awake
We are awake
We are awake
Track Name: Domino
You were standing so tall, but tripping over yourself
Your head was in heaven, but your feet were caught in hell
And you never saw that the threat was coming down
It tapped you on the shoulder, ordered you to face the ground

How do you get around while falling?
It seems your cavalcade of chaos makes your dreams dive down
And when the first of all your follies
Doesn’t stop the start of all these dominoes
From crashing into you

An empire assembled, just to drop to its knees
A false sense of order is just crippling disease
and until it’s over, we won’t get any peace
So for that day coming, we will wait patiently

How do you get around while falling?
It seems your cavalcade of chaos makes your dreams dive down
And when the first of all your follies
Doesn’t stop the start of all these dominoes
From crashing into you

How do you get around while falling?
It seems your cavalcade of chaos makes your dreams dive down
And when the first of all your follies
Doesn’t stop the start of all these dominoes
From crashing into you
Track Name: This Defense
Wake up, wake up, we are reloaded
Chambers are ready, barrels full
We are not sad, we are not hopeless
Fingers on trigger, ready to pull

And we will blow you away
Blow you away

We are ready to fight
Ready to stand
We will show you our strength
We are ready to go
It’s not impossible
We will keep you at arms’ length

Come on, come on, this is our siren
On count of three, all blades unsheathe (1,2,3!)
There’s no remorse, there’s no denying
Open your lungs up, time to breathe

And we will blow you away
Blow you away

We are ready to fight (say what you want)
Ready to stand (say what you will)
We will show you our strength (I’m not afraid of you)
We are ready to go (say what you want)
It’s not impossible (say what you will)
We will keep you at arms’ length (at arms’ length)

We will not lose to this battle to you now
We will not stop until you’re six feet underground

And we will blow you away
Blow you away

We are ready to fight (say what you want)
Ready to stand (say what you will)
We will show you our strength (I’m not afraid of you)
We are ready to go (say what you want)
It’s not impossible (say what you will)
We will keep you at arms’ length (at arms’ length)
In this defense!
Track Name: Razorblade Deluxe
I see no light
I see no reason to hold on
I have nobody I can call
I hear no heaven
I taste no redemption
There’s nothing I want more than a rope
Not to climb out of this darkness
But to hang myself in it

Rain won’t wash me clean
Give it up, give it up, nobody’s home
Rain won’t wash me clean
Give it up, give it up, nobody’s home

Vacant I am
Ugly and insignificant
Uncomfortable and dead
Empty I am
A shell without a soul
So what’s the point in heavy breathing?
Because the air isn’t going anywhere
No, the air, it doesn’t move

Rain won’t wash me clean
Give it up, give it up, nobody’s home
Rain won’t wash me clean
Give it up, give it up, nobody’s home

This is how it feels to not want to feel

Rain won’t wash me clean
Give it up, give it up, nobody’s home
Rain won’t wash me clean
Give it up, give it up, nobody’s home
Track Name: We Were Knives
We were knives
Our bodies covered in blood
We were knives
Entangled in this love
We were knives
Together we were strong
We were knives
But where do we belong?
