Track Name: THAT / LIGHT
HELL IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE FORGET
THAT
WE DON'T KNOW WHY WE'RE HERE
THAT
WE DON'T KNOW WHEN IT'S GONNA END
THAT
WE DON'T KNOW WHEN IT BEGINS

SO PLEASE REMEMBER
THAT
WE'RE HERE TO TEACH EACH OTHER HOW TO LOVE
THAT
WE'RE ONLY HERE FOR THE DAY
THAT
YOU KNOW
HELL IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE FORGET

THAT

THERE'S SO MANY OF US OUT HERE
IN DARKNESS
BREATHING LIGHT

IT'S EVERYONE WHO'S EVER BEEN AND WILL EVER BE
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BREATHE WHAT THEY TELL YOU TO BREATHE
Track Name: COLUMBINE H.S. ALMA MATER
MOUNTAINS RISING TO THE SUN
TOW'RING O'ER THE PLAINS
HEADS HELD HIGH WE STAND AS ONE
AND PROUDLY WE PROCLAIM
WE ARE COLUMBINE
WE ALL ARE COLUMBINE
LET THE WORLD BE TOLD
BLUE AND SILVER WE UPHOLD
FOREVER
Track Name: ASSEMBLY
WE TEACH TO A TEST WITH NO USE IN THE HUMAN WORLD
RAISING AN ARMY OF ROBOTS WITHOUT THOUGHTS OF THEIR OWN
A BLIND GENERATION OF TOOLS AND COWARDS
LEADING THEMSELVES OFF A FUCKING CLIFF

WANNA BE A WINNER? HERE'S THE RULES TO THE GAME
ACCEPT OUR STORY, FALL IN LINE AND BEHAVE
AT A DESK ALL DAY IN A PLASTIC CHAIR
GIVE UP YOUR WILL TO LIVE AND BEG TO SERVE

IT'S A PLAYBOOK OF KILLJOY BULLSHIT
UNIFORMS AND CENSORSHIP, GASLIGHTING DISSIDENTS
WALK PROUD DOWN THE ASSEMBLY LINE
JUST DON'T CALL IT WHAT IT IS
A FUCKING MESS

YOU CAN'T EXPRESS YOUR OWN RAGE
THE WORDS WE MAKE YOU SPEAK KEEP YOU CAGED
BEHIND THOSE BARS THERE'S ONLY ROOM FOR ONE
YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE EACH OTHER

WE DULL THE MIND AND MUTE THE HEART
YOU DON'T KNOW YOURSELF SO WE'LL TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE
FORGET SHOP, HOME EC AND MARCHING BAND
ALL YOU NEED'S A GUN IN YOUR HAND

IT'S A PLAYBOOK OF KILLJOY BULLSHIT
UNIFORMS AND CENSORSHP, GASLIGHTING DISSIDENTS
WALK PROUD DOWN THE ASSEMBLY LINE
JUST DON'T CALL IT WHAT IT IS
A FUCKING MESS
Track Name: END / DO IT
MARK MY FACE
IT'S NOT GONNA LAST
SAME GAME, DIFFERENT NAME

CATATONIA
END

THERE COMES A TIME
FOR EVERY PUPPET
TO MAKE THEIR OWN DANCE
TO WALK THEIR OWN PATH

CATATONIA
END

YOU SAY YOU GIVE A FUCK
I SEE NO ACTION
CAN'T HANG IT ALL ON LUCK
THERE'S NO SATISFACTION

DON'T SAY SHIT
DO IT

YOU'VE GOT YOUR DIATRIBE
LOCKED AND COCKED
BUT NEVER ARRIVE
AT AN EARTHLY CONCLUSION

DON'T SAY SHIT
DO IT

THIS WORLD IS YOURS TO CHANGE
YOUR ADVENTURES YOU CREATE
TAKE CONTROL, REARRANGE
DON'T SAY SHIT
DO IT
MAKE IT REAL
Track Name: CALL DEATH
THE AIM OF THE GAME
IS TO ACHIEVE PEACE AND LASTING HAPPINESS
PLAY IT WELL
AND EACH DAY IS EASIER THAN THE ONE BEFORE
PLAY IT POORLY
AND YOU BECOME YOURSELF A BLACK HOLE, A GATE TO HELL
RECOGNIZE YOUR IMPERMANENCE

CALL DEATH
BEFORE DEATH CALLS YOU

CHRIST FORGIVES YOU
FORGIVE YOURSELF
DON'T WASTE THIS TIME
IT'S ALMOST UP

CALL DEATH
BEFORE DEATH CALLS YOU

EMBRACE YOUR FEAR
LIKE A MOTHER
IT WILL EMBRACE YOU
IN RETURN

CALL DEATH
BEFORE DEATH CALLS YOU

ALL ARE BORN IN IT
ALL DIE IN IT
FEW LIVE IN TRUTH

CALL DEATH
CALL DEATH
Track Name: FIGURE IT OUT
NOBODY KNOWS WHAT THEY'RE DOING
FOLLOW YOUR HEART AND FUCK THE REST
IF YOU THINK TOO MUCH YOU'RE GONNA WAKE UP IN SHIT
FIGURE IT OUT

NOBODY LIKES BEING TOLD WHAT TO DO
SO SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND BE YOURSELF
YOU MIGHT KEEP A FRIEND OR TWO
FIGURE IT OUT

ARE YOU LISTENING?
UNDERSTAND THIS

WALK THE EARTH LIKE IT BELONGS TO ALL OF US
IT'S A SIMPLE GAME WITH SIMPLE RULES
YOU DON'T HURT ME AND I WON'T HURT YOU
FIGURE IT OUT
Track Name: CHAOS BREEDS ______
HATRED BY ANY OTHER NAME IS THE SAME
NO ONE HAS TO TEACH YOU THIS
EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS IN YOUR MIND

PURGE WHAT WAS FORCE FED AND MAKE SPACE FOR TRUTH
BEWARE THOSE WHO SEEK CONTROL
THEY FEAR DEATH SO MUCH THEY NEVER LIVE
IN TRUTH

CHAOS BREEDS

WON'T BE LONG THE KIND WILL RULE IT ALL
CHURCHES OF HATRED AND JUDGEMENT
ARE DOOMED TO FALL

BREAK FREE FROM THE ROLE YOU'RE ASSIGNED
LET US EACH BECOME SOMEONE WORTH FOLLOWING
AND WE'LL ARRIVE TOGETHER
IN TRUTH

CHAOS BREEDS ______
Track Name: MAYBE YOU COULD
MAYBE YOU COULD TEACH A KID
HOW TO THROW A PUNCH
SO WHEN THEY'RE HUNGRY
THEY CAN FUCK SOMEONE UP
AND STEAL THEIR LUNCH
MAYBE YOU COULD TEACH A KID
HOW TO MAKE A FRIEND
THEN THEY WOULDN'T HAVE TO THROW A PUNCH
IN THE FIRST PLACE

MAYBE YOU COULD TEACH A KID
HOW TO BUILD A WALL
AND PRETEND THEIR NEIGHBORS DON'T EXIST
ONCE AND FOR ALL
MAYBE YOU COULD TEACH A KID
HOW TO MAKE A FRIEND
THEN THEY WOULDN'T HAVE TO BUILD A WALL
IN THE FIRST PLACE

OH YEAH
MAYBE YOU COULD

MAYBE YOU COULD TEACH A KID
HOW TO BUILD A BOMB
AND BLOW UP ALL THE PEOPLE THEY THOUGHT
WERE THINKING WRONG
MAYBE YOU COULD TEACH A KID
HOW TO MAKE A FRIEND
THEN THEY WOULDN'T HAVE TO BUILD A BOMB
IN THE FIRST PLACE

OH YEAH
MAYBE YOU COULD
Track Name: BRING BACK THE HEART
SORRY
DIDN'T MEAN TO SHIT ON YOUR FUCKIN' PARADE
I GUESS A SONOFABITCH LIKE ME
SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH A HAND GRENADE
DID YOU SEE THE EXPLOSION?
IT'S WHAT WE'VE ALL BEEN PRAYING FOR
PLEASE BELIEVE WE CAN STILL MAKE GOOD

THEY'LL FOAM AT THE MOUTH
YOU'LL SEE THEIR EYES BLEED
WHEN THEY THINK YOU'RE TRYING TO TAKE
ALL THE THINGS THAT THEY THINK THEY NEED
BUT IF YOU'RE LOUD ENOUGH
ALL THAT THINKING STOPS
AND THEY CAN FINALLY HEAR THEIR HEART AGAIN

THAT'S WHY WE DO THIS SHIT

DON'T WORRY
YOU KNOW IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO CHANGE THE GAME
DREAM UP A WAY OUT YOUR NIGHTMARE AND RESET THE STAGE
DID YOU FEEL THE EXPLOSION?
IT'S WHAT WE'VE ALL BEEN DYING FOR
PLEASE BELIEVE WE CAN STILL MAKE GOOD

THEY'LL FOAM AT THE MOUTH
YOU'LL SEE THEIR EYES BLEED
WHEN THEY THINK YOU'RE TRYING TO TAKE
ALL THE THINGS THAT THEY THINK THEY NEED
BUT IF YOU'RE LOUD ENOUGH
ALL THAT THINKING STOPS
AND THEY CAN FINALLY HEAR THEIR HEART AGAIN
