Track Name: Apollo
APOLLO

There was a time
when the land we lived upon
didnt hold a price
possession and their lies
didn't prove who we are
they said think twice
cause all hope had lost it's fight
whether you're wrong or right
I'd rather die for my dreams
than live in this hell

I'll follow my dream
not knowing where it goes
follow it to the end

We hold the world in our hands
Awaking in my soul
We hold the world in our hands
it's time we know

I've never gone a day without eating
I've never gone a day without sleep
We take so much for granted
The rich get stronger while the poor stay weak

If you want peace then make your own
If you don't care then stand alone
but that won't
hold us back cause we've seen hell
and have a story to tell

I'll wait until this world burns to change our ways
but by the time we do, it'll be far too late

and you say that things will never come easy,
but we're too afraid to even try
Day will come when every soul will be listening,
to the whispering of the pain we all feel inside
Track Name: Anthem
ANTHEM

Sing out loud, cause this is our anthem
let them hear you sing from miles away
to let them know that you're here to stay
so yell, cause this is your anthem
and everyone will sing out loud, and every
heart will choose to sing about

I don't know where i got lost
somewhere between a dream that carried me and
i don't think i care too much at all (at all)
the things that my eyes have seen
have led me to believe
there's more to life than you and me
we choose the way our destiny unfolds before us

Over and over again
i break my back to keep you happy
i cant keep wondering when happiness
comes from within

sing out loud 'till the roof shakes
let them hear our anthem
our anthem
sing out loud 'till the earth quakes
let them hear our anthem
our anthem
this is your anthem

I dream of a day that comes
when all of our voices rise
and sing in melody
can you hear it, can you feel it?
its the part of you that's just been dying to be heard
and you know there's something more
if i cant ask you to believe
then i only ask you one thing

sing out loud 'till the
roof shakes
let them hear our anthem
our anthem
sing out loud till the
earth quakes
let them hear our anthem
our anthem

you find yourself face to face
with the ground you
thought you'd never see
all alone hopeless without
anyone else to pick you up
you heard my voice
and you answered
look up to the sky
with your head held high

this is what we call singing
so sing out loud
until the roof shakes
till the roof shakes

let them hear it x2
let them hear us sing
(to sing)
let them hear it
let them hear us sing
sing along
Track Name: Friendly Fire
FRIENDLY FIRE
From the start,
you placed your life at the shallow end
saving face was only meant for the broken

Can you see?
You'll maybe fool them but you
can't fool me
Knee deep in false hopes that cover
yourself in sorrow
holding the weight of the world
on your shoulders.
Are you blind or can you see?
a traitor's never set free

You dropped the bomb
and it comes back around again
Save yourself (save save yourself)
You chose your words
to come back and backstab a friend
Save yourself, you'll die by a whisper
and I can't believe
that you would put this on me
Either you'll live on a lie
or die by a whisper

The things you crave the most
are the biggest lies you're told,
and you can't even find your own soul

How could this be a friendship?
I couldn't treat my own worst enemy
the way that you have treated me
how could this be a friendship?
the truth will set you free

Can you see?
You'll maybe fool them but you
can't fool me
Knee deep in false hopes that cover
yourself in sorrow
holding the weight of the world
on your shoulders.
Are you blind or can you see?
a traitor's never set free

You dropped the bomb
and it comes back around again
Save yourself (save save yourself)
You chose your words
to come back and backstab a friend
Save yourself, you'll die by a whisper
and I can't believe
that you would put this on me
Either you'll live on a lie
or die by a whisper
Track Name: Hopeful Beings
CHINESE FLOWERS

We weren't meant
to be tossed in the dark
without a chance to spark
and light the fire inside us
still looking for the end
still reaching for a friend
if there's something that'll save us
let it be a flame x2
(just let it be)

There is no hope without believing
there is no need without seeing
that in this world,
we only have each other to survive
we are the hopeful beings

A breath in awe
holds a million wonders
can you feel the wonder?
let it rain all over your skin
and i know, we all get lost
from time to time
we lose our cause
but we're not alone in this
no, we're not alone in this
singing

I see it in your eyes
a part of you yearning
to see the sunrise
again in the sky
so set your mind free
and breathe for me
i still believe
that we're the hopeful beings

There is no hope without believing
there is no need without seeing
that in this world,
we only have each other to survive
we are the hopeful beings
there's hope
and love
to bring a smile to a child
the price
it takes
to free our country from strife
when will we see
we only have each other to survive
we are the hopeful beings
Track Name: Lit De Mort
DEATHBED

Staring at the ceiling
pain rushing through my head
cant seem to look away
cant take this feeling
every kiss, every fight
i've ever missed in my life
had reflected the love
you had for me to survive

'Cause in the land of the blind I see
that we all share the same destiny
a billion doors leading to the unknown
what it holds,
we were never meant to know

Accept the truth
I was dead from the start
Release me as i form
nothing but a memory

When we live to breathe
memories will hold so dear
days will come when all of
our sorrows disappear x2
we live and we die
but the love we share
always will survive
