Track Name: Machines
We rise
Another day
Our bodies crack like
Overworked machines now
The engines of our cars are pumping
Struggling with the pace we force
Around the turns
Our coffee spills onto our skin
We feel the pain
But there's no time to stop

We file aboard the train
Our bodies uniformly dance
As though we're somehow attached

We work
We work til night
Then maybe we'll rest

We rarely sleep but perpetually dream

We are the engines
We are the machines
Being driven by the rich
I know we are more than machines with dreams
We rarely sleep but perpetually dream
Track Name: Moving On
The air is cold
I just can't take anymore
So I'll burn this bridge just to stay warm.
Sadly, I've seen this all before
I've got friends who will always enrich my life
Forever standing by my side
Your actions will never be justified
And I don't want you in my life

You walk in the present but live in the past
But I've moved on
You've got to move on now.

You're convinced that you can fix everything
I'm not your project; not your broken machine
We know where this road leads
I've got friends who will always enrich my life
Forever standing by my side
Your actions will never be justified
And I don't want you in my life
Track Name: Skeletons & Ghosts
You can see the breath I breathe
Sending ghosts into the night
That's the only sign of life
All of the trees have now become
Skeletons and the nights are long
But there's life inside of me

Even in this darkness I can see
There's something inside of me
Let's create a new start
With memories of better days
Within our hearts

The sky is now changing
As the blue pours out to red
Just another reminder of death
I see skeletons and signs of death
But I'm still breathing so there's something left inside
Alive inside of me

Let's create a new start
Track Name: Skin To Skin
How can I go on
I will find a way to be strong

Though we cannot touch skin to skin
I have memories within
A life that goes on without end

Closed your eyes and wished it was all a dream
But you couldn't change anything
I know there's something more
Than what our eyes can see and our hands can hold
I know there's something more than old photographs
And tragic stories
And I will never hide this emotion inside
That guides me

Have you ever felt broken and incomplete
But you couldn't change anything
Wish I could just stay in bed
Close my eyes
And forget the past
Just pull the sheets over my head
Then I will awake refreshed
Can i ever find a way to be renewed
After breaking down

Though we cannot touch skin to skin
I have memories within
A life that goes on without end
A life that some would say is gone
Has a way to carry on
A life that goes on without end
Track Name: 3 Train
Heading uptown
On a crowded subway car again
Bodies shifting with each bend
Just can't wait to be back home
But I've got a million places to go
I'm always on the go

Riding on the 3 train
Running low on time
I haven't slept for three days
I've convinced myself that this is a normal life

Lately I've found
My plans have been misplaces
Amidst this noise and haste
Can't live any other way
And I've got no desire to change
I may never change

Amidst the noise and haste of our lives
Lies an unexplainable drive to keep fighting
Each day that passes by

I may never change
I've found comfort in living this way
I may never
But I will find a way to enjoy this ride
Track Name: Take Control
We've got to examine what we believe
It's time to take control
We've got to question the lies we accept
It's time to take control

Some people cry for a revolution
Some people seek mediocrity
How can we work as one
to create a better society

(Is it all)
Is it all we can do
(to believe)
to accept everything we see

We've all been hypnotized
Into thinking there's someone on our side
We've all lost our rights
Land of the free now that a lie

We're tired of their lies
We've got to demand the truth
I would rather die than
Accept all as fact

All their efforts to create
A reality where they are right
Overlooking all our needs
But still they send our troop to fight

Scream it from the top of your lungs
If you don't condone the things they've done
You're not on your own

Land of the free; it's the land of greed
Scripted realities and full blown lies
Designed to play on all your fears
Designed to convince you they are right
