NO ACCEPTANCE You're who's to blame You're whose footseps we followed in You couldn't stay ahead You couldn't stand united So you let us down instead We don't share the point of view that unity is dead You used to share our spirit You used to be our friend Then negativity took control and got inside your head Now we can trust a single word that you have ever said Can't you see we're sick of you Parading you opinions when nothing that you say holds any truth I guess that common sense and right ideas are something wasted on the youth Parading opinions but nothing that you say holds any weight You say you want to change your ways It's not too late But you have to let go of your hate
BREAK YOU OFF Try to find a close friend you can blame Whoever you trust most to play your game Saying that the rules are all too fair Play me like a fool because I don't care Nothing that you say Nothing that you say is ever true The way you act makes me sick Friend or foe, take your pick Either way I don't mind You were just a waste of time
RIGHT DIRECTION I know the right direction is the hardest one to face With people always leaning on your back They'll tell you you're losing They'll tell you it's a race But never what to do to stay on track Do not be afraid To lay down what you have for what you know is real Do not be afraid to feel I know the right direction is the hardest one to face With people always breathing down your neck They'll tell you you're wasting time They'll say it's just a phase But never shine a light on what comes next
LOSING BATTLE They tell you what you want to hear to get inside your head Say they want to help you but they'd rather see you dead Barely even living on someone else's dime Pay their price Fall in line Gain no ground Marking time Artificially alive Scared to face the other side Sacrifice your strength of mind Choke down pills to stay alive All that's left is borrowed time Pay their price and fall in line Pay their price Fall in line Artificial state of mind
THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK You've got a mouth you use more than your head You've got a chance to end it, you start it instead You think you're strong when you pick on the weak You don't belong in our scene You don't belong You don't think before you speak
RESORT TO VIOLENCE It's tough to tell the difference Who's real and who's pretend Your first resort is violence It's time for this to end No one to blame but yourself You blame all your problems on everyone else So many people we don't know who to trust The way that you act helps us shorten the list So many people you keep pushing away The way that you act won't bring back all the times you've missed Count all your friends on one hand while you're clenching your fist
