Mixing equal parts of Nine Inch Nails, Muse, and the Sex Pistols…the band has been taking not only New Jersey, but the entire northeast by storm since 2006. ... more

Track Name: Global Warning
Everything starts with good intentions
Everyone ends on their knees
But you'll never doubt what they tell you
'Cause you never knew what to believe

Everything starts with good intentions
Everyone ends on their knees
Guess we better just start things over...

Always one more chance to take
Always make the same mistakes
We lick the sugar cube but
We have lost our sense of taste
Clouded vision and all you see
Are flashing lights and pretty things
Paralyze the weakest link
Making sure you do nothing

Do something, everything is ending

Contraception and sustained highs
Keeping us behind the lines
We pray on bloody knees but
We have lost our faith
Maybe we should press rewind
Could we do something this time

Do something, everything is ending

If we could start again
Then this just has to end
Got a finger on the pulse
And it just stopped beating

Everything starts with good intentions
Everyone ends on their knees
But you'll never doubt what they tell you
'Cause you never knew what to believe
Everything starts with good intentions
Everyone ends on their knees
Guess we better just start things over...

The flashing lights are all around me
The clock is ticking but no one's counting
I want to get out while I still can

Do something, everything is ending
Track Name: Comfort in the Skin
Living for future, set on the past
This scene has been dead and this day is our last
Her dream is to change everyone that she knows
I bled for her scene and now I am all alone

You've got to fight the odds and take it in
Hate everyone who comes within
Whether it's corrupt or innocent
I can't find no comfort in any skin

You're one step closer to reaching the edge
Of the line that's drawn through these institutions
Cause you look so good when you sell your sins
And you find the comfort within the skin

Paranoid complex, drugs in her brain
Rounding in circles but staying the same
She sees herself in such a manic depression
She cuts herself because she needs the attention

You've got to hide and please and spread disease
Like a wildfire burning bridges and trees

You're one step closer to reaching the edge
Of the line that's drawn through these institutions
Cause you look so good when you sell your sins
And you find the comfort within the skin

The ones you wronged, clip the wings off
The ones you wronged, clip the wings off of you

You're one step closer to reaching the edge
Of the line that's drawn through these institutions
Cause you look so good when you sell your sins
And you find the comfort within the skin
Track Name: Exorcise
Don't want to be exorcised or compromised
For everything I know
Don't want any alibis to compromise
Everything that's shown

As he walks along the edge
He hears the words being said
And he wonders how it ever got this way
To be the one that has to see
The way things just shouldn't be
It's getting hard...

See, why can't you see
What's in my head
No one knows what I know
Be, why can't you be
Just how I am
No one's left

Don't want to be exorcised or compromised
For everything I know
Don't want any alibis to compromise
Everything that's shown

As he walks along the edge
He feels the ripping, piercing stares
And he knows he can not last much longer here
He screams so loud by no one hears
They're so immersed in all their fears
He knows it's wrong

Don't want to be exorcised or compromised
For everything I know
Don't want any alibis to compromise
Everything that's shown

See, why can't you see
What's in my head
No one knows what I know
Be, why can't you be
Just how I am
No one's left

Don't want to be exorcised or compromised
For everything I know
Don't want any alibis to compromise
Everything that's shown
Track Name: Castaway
You're getting on an airplane
That you know is gonna crash
You pack your things cause likely
You're never coming back
Pack your feelings, your troubles,
And all the things that make you part of me
I'm crashing down with you

I can't remember what I feel this for
I can't remember what you take me for
And I just care about you so deeply
You know I'm bound to drown
I can't remember
Just how to feel at all

I'm holding back your hair
While you're laying on the ground
If you knew how I feel about you
You wouldn't want me around
Cause I'm weak and so insecure and I want to just tear myself apart
Get you out of my fucking heart

I can't remember what I feel this for
I can't remember what you take me for
And I just care about you so deeply
You know I'm bound to drown
I can't remember
Just how to feel at all

I hope you're drowning, you're drowning like me

You're standing on the shore line
The sun is going down
A castaway in a wasteland
And you were not around

I can't remember what I feel this for
I can't remember what you take me for
And I just care about you so deeply
You know I'm bound to drown
I can't remember
Just how to feel at all
Track Name: Go to Hell
Tied to a chair and the time bomb's ticking...

You lie face against the ground
And here's another round
For telling me it all would be okay
I've heard it all before
Won't listen anymore
Now it's time for a change of pace

You saw what I had slippin' away
And now you came and you took it from me
Now I've got something to say
You should go fuck yourself
I believed it all but that was yesterday
I took a chance and I don't have to stay
Now I've got something to say
You should all go to hell

It's not like anything went how I planned
It's not like anything has changed at all
You said it was a chance to take
But you're making all the same mistakes

I'm the one you all have blamed
But I won't be ashamed
For telling you exactly how it seems
You think you're fucking stars
But don't know who you are
We'll meet again when we're burning in hell

It's not like anything went how I planned
It's not like anything has changed at all
You said it was a chance to take
But you're making all the same mistakes

Now we're gonna fucking take this
Now we're gonna fucking tear you down
And send your misery and jealousy to hell

Tied to a chair and I'm a time bomb ticking away...

You saw what I had slippin' away
And now you came and you took it from me
Now I've got something to say
You should go fuck yourself
I believed it all but that was yesterday
I took a chance and I don't have to stay
Now I've got something to say
You should all go to hell

It's not like anything went how I planned
It's not like anything has changed at all
You said it was a chance to take
But you're making all the same mistakes

Now we're gonna fucking take this
Now we're gonna fucking tear you down
And send your misery and jealousy to hell
Track Name: Malevolent Nation
We're not trying to sell a product
We're not trying to sell a trend
But you'll buy just what we tell you
So you can impress all of your friends

It's time to open your eyes and awake from this delusion...awake!

We are not the American Idols
We don't live in Laguna Beach
We don't bow our heads to the dollar sign
That our leaders wholeheartedly preach
We are the product of an environment
And the product of society
That's hell bent and set to destroy itself
Through religion and technology

What ya gonna do?

A malevolent nation (pick it up)
A malevolent (whatcha gonna do?)
A malevolent nation (pick it up)
A malevolent (whatcha gonna do?)

We're not slaves to a generation
We don't practice what they teach
We wont bow and pray for the liberties
That our nations will never reach
We are the product of our denial
And the product of society
That's hellbent on self medication
While awaiting the catastrophe

A malevolent nation (pick it up)
A malevolent (whatcha gonna do?)
A malevolent nation (pick it up)
A malevolent (whatcha gonna do?)

We are the virus in your ears
The soundtrack to all deceit
In a world and a nation
Where the future seems to bleak
Because we're living in a big lie
No time left to pretend
And the only thing left to imagine
Is the inevitable end

A malevolent nation (pick it up)
A malevolent (whatcha gonna do?)
A malevolent nation (pick it up)
A malevolent (whatcha gonna do?)
