Idle Hands 02:26
Action on demand - Might s’well make my stand ‘gainst the establishment - Make use of idle hands But it all depends - Reward promises Carry out the plan - Make use of idle hands Do it, what’s the holdup - we need a shakeup - time is ticking Do it now! C’mon - We’re all waiting - anticipating - what's the hang up Time to act - motivate - move before it's too late! You’re wasting time, don’t waste your breath Now get it done, before your death Move along or nevermind, your idle hands are a waste of time You’re such a jerk to make us wait, when all you do is procrastinate Don’t burden us [No!], don’t waste our time, Just get it done, before your die Now move your butt, get into gear, or we become your darkest fear … Nevermind! None of this is worth my time! We only have one life to live, so make it count!

Home 05:50
I won’t fight it anymore the flow is just too strong Change is inevitable - what’s right now will soon be wrong When you solve a problem, doesn’t it feel good? But good can turn into numb then nothing feels quite as it should Should we - assuage - our pain? The fear you feel is natural, don’t let it cave you in & this pain will never dull, it’s necessary for discipline Some day when you’re comfortable the shake-ups come again The expectation’s reasonable, just a matter of where & when Home - a state - of mind Home is where your heart is full and you can rest your head Also it’s a place to go to avoid worry and dread Home is where your heart is full and you can rest your mind Also it’s a place to go a while to safely hide First we need to find ourselves, let instincts be our guide Who we are and where we live is just a state of mind More than your flesh (it’s who we are) Not property (it’s who we are) It’s what - you do - who are we?! So don’t fight this anymore & give in to the flow Cutting off some deadwood will help to grow your ailing soul I’m not making promises - just find out for yourself Discipline can improve your life, give you health and gain you wealth Home is where your heart is full and you can rest your mind Also it’s a place to go a while to safely hide First we need to find ourselves, let instincts be our guide Who we are and where we live is just a state of mind

Demagogue 04:36
This is the way that you see me: Character from a fantasy Deeper than your reality, It’s too much for you to perceive Follow me and I can save you, Stay by me forever true But first, tell me what you will do, I will demand so much from you Life. Liberty. The Persuit… I lead - you follow - I am your tomorrow Bow before me, then you will see Give me your hate and I’ll make us great I will make us great again. With me, you finally understand You must give in to my plan, Join and fit in with our clan All will make some sacrifice, You prepare to give your life A time will come when I will tell, The rest that you had served us well Sacrifice for the greater evil! EVIL! I lead - you follow - I am your tomorrow You let me think your thoughts for you, What is real I pick and choose Futures only I decide, No one will run no one can hide Everyone who stands with me To become plurality Will receive my promises - You will keep my promises Survival - Lies - Rat race ... I command - you follow - Pull the plug - No tomorrow Bow before me, then you will see Give me your hate and I’ll make us great Give in to me, all you will be It takes quite a man to make us great again!

Return 02:42
Blistering in the sun - never know when work is done Never-ending quest for life - missed the chance to live in spite Working hard for tomorrow - ended with only sorrow Missed the chance that was today - until your life has ticked away Searching all day long - Return where you belong Return that which you have paid - borrow more to save today Living life in the past - the present moves on too fast Take a breath and hold it in - fold your wealth into your skin Savor every moment now - blow your shot, then take a bow Searching all day long - Return where you belong Searching all day and night - Return from wrong to right

Struggle 03:59
Life is struggle - will be wasted - take a cup full - do you taste it? Is it good? Life is struggle - take a cup full Do you ever wish you were somebody else? If you do, just remember, it's never as easy as it looks. Life is hard as you make it Struggle to make it worth it Keep your chin up and you feel The struggle is real! It ought to come as no surprise, no one has come to aid my cries I took a gaze into the sky - one billion stars; the paradox is that we're all alone. Can't you see the storm is coming? Lock your doors and hide belongings. Life can give and take away, all we are will fade away - gone, gone. Use resources while you can Set in place a useful plan If you fail get up again Thoughts and deeds will outlive man History - did you learn your lesson? It ought to come as no surprise, no one has come to aid my cries I took a gaze into the sky - one billion stars; the paradox is that we're all alone Life is struggle - will be wasted - take a spoon full - do you taste it? Did you keep it down? Life is struggle - take a spoon full Do you ever wish that you had so much more But you have no idea what life has in store Life is hard as you make it Struggle to make it worth it Keep your chin up and you feel The struggle is real!

Songs have an energetic feel, blending classic heavy metal with progressive, symphonic, death metal and doom metal tones.
