Track Name: Arsenal
Music: Brennand/Lawrence
Lyrics: Brennand

Waking up again to another day's routine
Of tired feet and aching bones and 6 AM monotony
Interstates in different states are calling out my name
For now I'll go to work and engage in battle with the day

Because I've got the rest of my life to grow up
The time is here, the time is now
And I'm not giving up

This still means the world to me
These friends are now my family
These crowded rooms
These restless nights
I'll cherish them for all my life

And even after I move on
My arsenal will be these songs
The passion won't end in this room

Because these songs
And these words
Make me feel like I can change the world
Track Name: Hey Nostradamus
Music: Brennand
Lyrics: Frandsen

Let's fucking go

Right here, right now
This world is all we'll ever see
This world is all we'll ever have
And flesh is all we'll ever be

No transubstantiation
No reunions in the sky
From organic compounds we arise
To soil when we die

So many find depression
The description of our lives
No purpose or direction
No everlasting life
If this is all we have
And its our eternal prize
I'll live life to the fullest
Focused mind and opened eyes

When the time is here
And I draw my last breath
Will I look back on my life
With sadness and regret?

Or will I find my comfort
Reflect on what I've done
And smile to myself
Because I've lived the life I love

Enforce your rules with idle threats
Enslave the weak with guilt and shame
The only hell I know is fear
The only god I serve is me

There is no god above us
No kingdom to behold
A waste of time to ponder
On matters of the soul
How can someone die
For sins I can't commit
I refuse to wear the guilt
Nailed to a crucifix

I will not submit

There's no holding back
We're not wasting time
This life is all we have
And it won't pass us by

When the time is here
And I draw my last breath
Will I look back on my life
With sadness and regret?

Or will I find my comfort
Reflect on what I've done
And smile to myself
Because I've lived the life I love

This is all we have
Track Name: Reason To Exist
What was the price of your dreams?
Was it comfort, was it safety?
Or something in between
How does it feel
When the person that you seek
Is a thousand miles away
From where you want to be

Did you grow up too fast
Was the meaning you find in your life
Forced on you in the past
Our standards, our beliefs
Our concepts of self
Defined by others for us
Detrimental to our health

Let's take it back
Those dreams when we were young
And fell under attack
If we're authors of substance
Definers of the truth
Then anything is possible
The choice is up to you

In a world that sold out
Before the cards were even dealt
I'm fighting to define my own meaning
To create my own existence for myself

And every day they'll shove their definitions
In your face
Standards of beauty, moral conduct
Work as if they're all the same
And it's time to rise above
The unfortunate lot of those
Who long ago gave up

This human tragedy that unfolds every day
The pain, the isolation
Slowly exist just to escape
But I won't turn my back
I'll walk straight ahead
This mind's still got some weapons
And these dreams aren't fucking dead

In a world that doesn't care
In a society plagued by ignorance and doubt
I'm fighting to define my own meaning
To create my own existence for myself

My reason to exist
Is leaving this world
A better place
Than when I found it

You are your actions
You are the catalyst
You are that change
Exemplified in yourself

Prepare for war

It never ends
This war for a better life
Just clench your fists
And fight until you die

It never ends
This war for a better life
Sharpen your mind
And fight until you die
