Track Name: Nation's Hands
ALL IS LOST IN YOUR FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
SOLD OUT BY THE MAN THAT CALL KING
KICKED AROUND FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN
FIGHT BACK OR YOU WILL LOSE EVERYTHING
IT SEEMS WE’RE STRUGGLING EVERYDAY
LIKE LIFE HAS A NOOSE AROUND OUR NECKS
WE PAID OUR DUES WITH NOTHING TO SHOW FOR
WE GOTTA RETHINK, GOTTA TAKE 2 STEPS BACK


STEPPING UP LIKE THERE’S NOTHING TO LOSE
NOTHING VENTURED IS STILL NOTHING GAINED
YOU WILL NEVER, EVER AMOUNT TO SHIT
IS WHAT THEY SAY, BUT THEY DON’T KNOW OUR PAIN
THEIR POCKETS ARE FILLED WITH GREED AND LIES
THIS TYRANY IS DRIVING US INSANE
BLOOD STAINED THE HANDS OF THE PATRIOTS
ITS THERE FAULT WAR IS ENGAGED


THE NATIONS HANDS WRAPPED AROUND MY NECK
THE GAIN OF PAIN WON’T LET ME FORGET
THE NATIONS HANDS WRAPPED AROUND MY NECK
THE GAIN OF PAIN WON’T LET ME FORGET
NOOOOO!!!

A LOST SOUL IN A WORLD OF DECEIT
RISE AGAIN, RISE AGAIN
KNOCK US DOWN BUT YOU NEVER WILL DEFEAT
RISE AGAIN, RISE AGAIN
TO DEFEND, RISE AGAIN IN VICTORY
RISE AGAIN, RISE AGAIN
KNOCK US DOWN BUT YOU WILL NOT DEFEAT!

THE NATIONS HANDS WRAPPED AROUND MY NECK
THE GAIN OF PAIN WON’T LET ME FORGET
THE NATIONS HANDS WRAPPED AROUND MY NECK
THE GAIN OF PAIN WON’T LET ME FORGET
Track Name: CMD
DON’T LET THE POWERS THAT BE
DICTATE HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE
WHO’S TRUTH ARE YOU GONNA BELIEVE

NEVERENDING FIGHT FOR CONTROL
I WILL NOT GIVE INTO THE MADNESS
WE CREATE OUR OWN DESTINY
NO MASTER – NO SLAVE
I WILL NOT BE TAKEN ALIVE, NO!

LIVE ON YOUR FEET OR DIE ON YOUR KNEES
NEVER LET ANYONE PUSH YOU AROUND
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE RIGHTS THAT ARE OWED TO YOU
BE A FUCKING MAN – DON’T BE FOOLED BY THE SYSTEM

NEVERENDING FIGHT FOR CONTROL
I WILL NOT GIVE INTO THE MADNESS
WE CREATE OUR OWN DESTINYUMAN RIGHTS
BORN FREE OR BORN TO LOSE
HURRY UP AND CHOOSE YOUR SIDE NOW!

CIVIL LIBERTIES STRIPPED FROM HUMAN RIGHTS
CAST ASIDE IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE
JUSTICE IS BLINDED WITH A FIST FULL OF CASH
AS THE INNOCENT MAN IS LEFT TO DIE

WE WON’T DIE!
Track Name: Nail It Back
TELL ME, DO YOU FEEL LIKE DYING
I’VE GOT SOME TIME, DO YOU FEEL LIKE TRYING
HOW MAY KNOTS WILL YOU BE UNTYING
WELL ONLY THOSE THAT PERTAIN TO YOU.

YEAH NAIL IT BACK
WE GOTTA NAIL IT BACK
NAIL IT BACK
YEAH NAIL IT BACK

CAN I DRAG YOU OUT OF THAT HOLE YOU THREW YOURSELF INTO.
OUT OF THE QUICKSAND AND INTO THIS GODDAMNNED WORLD.
WHATS PAST HAS PASSED WHATS DONE IS DONE
THERES NO TURNING BACK ITS TIME WE JUST MOVE ON.

AND NAIL IT BACK
WE GOTTA NAIL IT BACK
NAIL IT BACK
YEAH NAIL IT BACK

STRONGER, HARDER
TAKE BACK SANITY

STEP BY STEP, NAIL IT BACK
STEP BY STEP, NAIL IT BACK
STEP BY STEP, NAIL IT BACK
(STRONGER,HARDER, TAKE BACK SANITY)

STEP BY STEP
Track Name: Precious Time
WHEN I STOP AND THINK ABOUT MY PAST
I KNOW THAT TIME WON’T LAST
WE GOTTA MAKE THE BEST OF WHATS TO COME

HANGING BY A THREAD
ITS ALL JUST BORROWED TIME

WHEN I STOP AND THINK ABOUT THE END
I’LL DIE WITH MANY FRIENDS
WHO UNDERSTAND ME AND WHERE I’M FROM

WE’RE HANGING BY A THREAD
ITS ALL JUST BORROWED TIME
YOU GO FOR YOURS
AND I’LL GET… I’LL GET MINE

(1-2-3-GO)
VERY FEW HAVE LIVED
THERE LIVES WITH NO REGRETS
JUST BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
AND DON’T HANG ONTO EMPTY THREATS

WE LIVE FOR THIS
PRECIOUS TIME
WE LIVE FOR THIS
PRECIOUS TIME
