Lyrics by Benny McCulloch & Eric Lugo


We live our lives just to be a slave (Just to be a slave)
We sacrifice ourselves to watch it slip away (It slips away)
But we are the only ones who can stand and make a change
And now that we’re awake
Who knew?
The laws that bind us would cover up the truth
And who knew?
The ones we chose to lead would never see us through
Wait, wait
Its slipping away
No one can save us and no one believes what we
Say, say
Say what you may
Nothing can vanquish these demons we've made
Wait, wait
We're fading away
Now theres no hope left and no one believes what we
Say, say
It's hopeless to say
Nothing can vanquish these demons we've made
We dug oursleves an early grave (An early grave)
The actions of our past haunt us to this day (To this day)
We are the only ones who stand and make a change
Now im letting you know (I’m letting you know)
This isn’t the end (This isn’t the end) (This isn’t the end)
This isn’t the end of all we know (We know)
Or the end of everything
Its not over yet
The sun hasn't set
We wont give in til we breathe our last breath
We could, we could
Settle the score
Settle the score
