Track Name: Siberia
Planes fly overhead now
Great cause for concern
And into the pavement
Our shadows burn
Now we're breathing painfully
And the ash is cold
Rain down, the poison
Starts to take hold

I’ll never believe in a lie
Never believe
Counteract your action
Change in my direction
I’ll never believe in a lie
Never believe
Counteract infection
Change in my direction

Drink up the water
Drift off to sleep
Dress up the wounded
Death in the street
Hot air pulled from
Our shattered lungs
Won't rest until the
Fire's sated

I’ll never believe in a lie
Never believe
Counteract your action
Change in my direction
I’ll never believe in a lie
Never believe
Counteract infection
Change in my direction

Wake up, wake up
Withdraw
You gutless cowards have us by our throats

By our throats
By. Our. Throats
Track Name: This War
I pray
They don't leave me
Cause I won't make it out of here alone
And I pray
When they're leaving
I'm swiftly carried to the pickup zone
Cause this jungle's a nightmare
If you survive it or not
This place is a nightmare
I can't light up a flare because

I can't see my eyes are black
I can't see my eyes are black
A brother that I never met before
Pulled me up and carried me home

I'm not going back, so don't tell me
I'm not going back, so don't tear me down
I. Can't. Forget.
What this did to me
What this did to me

I'm prey
To the lions
Cause I'll be hated when I get back home
They'll say
That I murdered
And hold me down until they crush my bones
Forced into a nightmare
With youth driven from veins
Won't live through this nightmare
I can't weather the storm because

I can't see my eyes are black
I can't see my eyes are black
A brother that I never met before
Pulled me up and carried me home

I'm not going back, so don't tell me
I'm not going back, so don't tear me down
I. Can't. Forget.
What this did to me, what this did to me

My tongue has never been this sharp before

I. Can't. Forget.
Track Name: Ironclad
Draw!

Sons will be denied
A place at father’s hand
A fractured line drawn in the sand
At night they hide their faces
And hearts in iron guard
A fine farewell to arms
Two warships, face-to-face they meet
Poising to attack
Strike down Merrimack

You and I
We can’t see
Eye to eye
We’re blind

I’ve done all that I can
And catered to your needs
You are not my blood
Take a better shot at me and pull away the plates
Pull away the plates

We can only take so much battering at our sides
Before we lose sight of the daggers in our hands

Stand-off in Hampton
No one will win
Battle of the Ironclad
No one will win

No one will win
Track Name: Trenches
Trenches in our hearts
Are dug to guarantee
Each encounter ends
In animosity


Spit the blood from your mouth
Hold your heavy tongue
Straighten up your backbone
Don't let them see you run

So push your weight down
Over and over
Pull me under
Feed the hunger
Lose the battle

The war is over
Face it
Face it


Cause I don't wanna be your tragedy
I won't stand down
I refuse the be your tragedy
I won't stand down
You don't understand the gravity

Fractures in your armor, filled in with the weak
Break away from instinct, break from what you need

Trenches in our hearts
Trenches in our hearts
Trenches in our hearts

So push your weight down
Over and over
Pull me under
Feed the hunger
Lose the battle
The war is over
Face it
Face it

Cause I don't wanna be your tragedy
I won't stand down
I refuse the be your tragedy
I won't stand down
You don't understand the gravity

When you're done with me
Fulfilled all your needs
Brace yourself for me
I'll come back

When your age betrays
You in your last days
Haunt you in your dreams
You'll find…
You'll regret what you've bestowed on me
Get back. Get back. Get back.
