Track Name: My Wall
I've built this wall!
Of my friends and my family, helping me to reach tall
Can't climb the ladder of life without support
It's always taught me to never sell myself short

It puts me in my place
A welcomed guide to prevent my straying ways
It brings a smile to my face
Even when I felt lost

Learnt hard lessons, and the cycle renews
And when I'm feeling so bad, and I'm feeling so used
I can count on it's many layers to get me through

I'm not afraid to fall
This is my wall
I'm not afraid to fall

Cause I've built this wall
Of my friends and my family, helping me to stand tall
And when the rest of the world walked out on me
My wall kept me, that's what I call family

I'm not afraid to fall
This is my wall
I'm not afraid to fall
Cause I've built this wall
Track Name: Bricks
It's time to break the mold
This world is oh so cold
and you've sufferred on your own
sometimes it's hard I know,
and it gets worse when you're alone
We're here right now, just let it go
Now what the fuck are you waiting for
Stand up, and be heard
We're not the first, and I hope we're not the last
Win the war was just a warning
Wake up cause it's a new morning

You want it? We got it!
We'll see how much you want it
You're motivated by fame, and that's a losing game
We feel alive with our backs to the world
and your just fucking it up for yourself, ain't that the fucking truth

1, 2, 3, 4 - Move suckers hit the floor!
5, 6, 7, 8 - Step it up it's not to late
1, 2, 3, 4 - Motherfuckers hit the floor
Here we go, back for more
Where it's at, we're back on track

We ain't going out like that

This shit is getting old, We've seen it all so overrated
No matter how many ways you play it
theres no way to say it, but I hate it
We're here right now, just let it show.
Now what the fuck are we waiting for
Stand up, and be heard!
We're not the first, and I hope we're not the last
Win the war was just a warning,
Wake up cause it's a new morning
Track Name: Subdue the Foe
What's there to show? So many years of lies with a seed of truth
And we've failed to notice. Can't trust the facts, but their facts are all we know

Subdue the foe! Manipulate to change what the world holds ture
Just by our own ignorance! We trust their facts, cause their facts are all that's shown

Everyone has an agenda. It's the age of disinformation. We're pawns in this game, facts twisted to fit the new agenda

And we won't settle for the blatant vagueness, the misleading statements
Deceptive in their truths, and the clever use of their messengers
Fuck their fictions!

Break through the noise, beyond the lies, now it's time to see with our one eyes. Distort their signals, undermine. Bring back the focus. They just provoke this
Track Name: Stem The Tide
I'm searching day by day, searching what life has in store for me
So many years, you'd think I'd figure it out, and I got something to prove
But I can't quite point it out.
My backs against the wall, I'm struggling but I can't resolve.
The grey of life is a mystery, I gotta look within myself
Stem the tide of uncertainty

The fear is worse than failing. So I don't even try
I question everything about me
Am I a living lie? The who, the what, the when, where, why. The how did I succumb?
I gotta look within myself, if I'm to overcome

I'm gonna find my way to say it, live and die for it. I'll make a difference that lasts!

We'll I'm doing just fine,
lessons learned, i'm ahead of the times
I've caught myself in a bind
It doesn't matter cause I've STEMMED THE TIDE
Track Name: That's How It Goes
It's been a long time coming
Shit's been bumping along. Now listen! Not ashamed of a lengthy consultation. Had to figure it out as one!
I realized I couldn't do it myself, for what it's worth, kept my eye on the prize. It's just a matter of time and not a matter of pride. I couldn't sit back and watch this all pass by

That's how it goes you know, that's how I'm feeling it for myself, and I'm a let it flow
That's how it goes you know, that's how I'm feeling it for myself, and I'm a let it show

And I won't place the blame on anything; all I need was just some days
That's why I kept it so low, I'm still feeling it though, and I'm just waiting on ourselves, cause I know

Bring out the best in me, I learn the most when it stalls
Tough times bring Tougher minds, and when I'm feeling the hit, I'll just stop and press rewind.
Sit back and laugh. look at how it evolved
What's been before, is what will always be, it's just a matter of when from what I've seen
Track Name: Day By Day
Living life day by day, confused at where I stand
Coasting in no direction, not the life I planned
Not sure which path to take, or where to turn
It's my time to break through, not to crash and burn

take one step at time
Be sure not to cross the line
Break the chains, cut the binds
Everyone's leaving you behind

Try hard to put life together
Nothing changes, no worse, no better
My friends help me run this neverending race
Try hard to put life together
Nothing changes, no worse, no better
Help me to survive , put life in it's place

All the things that I despise
Day by day look me in the eyes
All the things that I despise
Break through the shit, and cut the ties
Track Name: Champion City
Unmistakeable! The heart and soul
From the Anthems of old, we've built a scene to call our own
Look at how we've grown, from unknown to full blown
We were the kids in the front row, the kids that never missed a show

And you say you're dying to leave here
But you're leaving so much behind
I had the chance to leave myself
But these memories flood my mind

This is where my heart lies


To the kids that eat, don't sleep, and breathe their hometown scene
Working long and hard, still coming out, still showing respect to new breeds
To the ones before us, who built this dream
All the champions who saw it through, this ones for you!

We're gonna scream, We're gonna scream and shout it
Show our pride, no doubt about it
Cause no matter how far we go, there's only one place that we call home

Unshakeable, the pride inside
Champions at heart, don't rule us out without a fight
No matter what they say, we keep playing the way we play
We want it all, we're still standing tall, cause in the end we're not afraid to fall
Track Name: Unconquerable
I've felt the blood drip from my face
My body struggled with the pace, and I didn't care it's cause I got there
Determined last year I'd be here.
Been beaten, broken, curses spoken, didn't matter, my minds unbroken
No matter how hard they tried, denied their triumph, Unconquerable

No feat beyond my reach, I took the path of most resistance
Turned obstacles, into opportunities, some say the last of a dying breed

No rivals, nothing can bring my downfall. I've built up this unbreakable will

looked deep within myself, depend on no one else.
Nothing can stop me now, not hits, won't quit, all grit, my vow
Been here many times before, gotta keep my head up if I'm to settle the score. Got back up on my feet, my one true enemy is defeat

I've felt the sweat drip from my brow. This type of stress I won't allow
and I didn't care it's cause I got there
Determined last year, I'd be here
Been beaten, broken, curses spoken. Didn't matter my minds unbroken
No matter how hard they tried, denied their triumph Unconquerable

Let Everybody know
Unconquerable
Track Name: Playing The Palace
What's wrong with the kids today? All of them trying to be famous celebrities. act like they made it big. Well i don't see an ounce of dignity
They walk around like they're something they're not. They're outter shell gleams, while their inner self rots. One day they'll realize to be true, shine through. and shed that disguise

You ain't playing the palace yet, so show yourself some self respect
You're so eager to stake your claim. You're blinded by this false sense of fame
You ain't playing the palace yet, so show yourself some self respect.
You gotta keep it down to earth and find your own sense of self worth

you're lost in other peoples lives
delusioned in your sense of pride
these goals you have to realize
They're heads held so high
