Track Name: Burden To Bear
I CARRY THE WEIGHT. I CARRY THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD.
I’M NOT AFRAID. I’M NOT AFRAID OF ANYTHING, ANYMORE.

FEAR AND DOUBT WEIGHED ME DOWN FOR FAR TOO LONG
THE BURDEN OF LIFE CRUSHED MY HEART AND SOUL
I HAVE FOUND THE WILL WITHIN TO CHANGE AND GROW
NOW, THE TIME HAS COME FOR ME TO TAKE CONTROL

IM NOT ALONE…

I’M NOT AFRAID, TO CARRY THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD
I’M NOT ALONE. I’M NOT ALONE ANYMORE
Track Name: Friend Of Mine
ILL FOREVER BE IN AWE, AMAZED TO NO END
AT THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF ALL MY FRIENDS

PROVIDENCE HAS BROUGHT US TOGETHER
AN ECLECTIC FAMILY LIKE NONE OTHER
WELCOME ALL, SISTERS AND BROTHERS
THE BONDS WE SHARE, BIND US FOREVER

WALK TOGETHER THROUGH LIFE AND DEATH
LESSONS LEARNED WITH EVERY STEP
THE WAY ITS BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE
I’M TRULY HONORED TO CALL YOU FAMILY

THESE FRIENDS OF MINE, THEY INSPIRE ME TO LIVE MY LIFE.
THESE FRIENDS OF MINE, THEY MEAN THE WORLD TO ME

BOUND FOR LIFE IN THE SPIRIT OF UNITY
WE OVERCOME ANY ADVERSITY
ONE ON ONE WE ENDURE THE SMALL THINGS
A THOUSAND STRONG WE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS

THESE FRIENDS OF MINE, THEY INSPIRE ME TO LIVE MY LIFE.
THESE FRIENDS OF MINE, THEY MEAN THE WORLD TO ME

LOVE IS THE TIE THAT BINDS US
AS WE REDEFINE
WHAT FAMILY MEANS TO ALL OF US
NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND
Track Name: The Here And Now
WE COME FROM THE WORLDS DARKEST PLACES
FORGING A HEAD IN SEARCH OF OPPORTUNITY
INSPIRED TO BUILD A NEW FOUNDATION FOR OURSELVES
TOGETHER WE CREATE THIS CEREMONY TO CELEBRATE OUR LIVES

THIS IS OUR CHANCE TO SHINE
THIS IS OUR TIME TO BURN BRIGHT
ENOUGH TO LET THE WORLD KNOW
WE ARE ALIVE

ABANDON THE PATHS LAID OUT BEFORE US
FORSAKE RUIN RAISE EXPECTATIONS
BEGIN A NEW WITH GREAT, ASPIRATIONS FOR OURSELVES
TOGETHER WE INSTILL NEW TRADITIONS TO CELEBRATE OUR LIVES

( feat. MATT CINCOTTA)
OPEN NEW LINES OF COMMUNICATION
ADD ONE MORE VERSE TO THE SONG.
WE MUST CONTINUE THE CONVERSATIONS.
SO THE STORY GOES ON AND ON AND ON…

THESE ARE THE MOMENTS THAT WE LIVE FOR

THIS IS OUR CHANCE TO SHINE
THIS IS OUR TIME TO BURN BRIGHT
ENOUGH TO LET THE WORLD KNOW
THAT WE ARE ALIVE

THESE ARE THE MOMENTS THAT WE LIVE FOR!
Track Name: Forked Tongue
RHETORIC SPEWS FROM YOUR MOUTH
FALSE WISDOM HIDES THE VIOLENCE
CHOKE YOUR WORDS BACK DOWN
SWALLOW YOUR TONGUE TO SILENCE

YOU CAN’T HIDE BEHIND FAITH
NO MATTER HOW YOU DISGUISE IT
THE MASK, IS TEARING AWAY
AND YOU CAN NOT DENY IT

BANNERS DISPLAY YOUR SICKNESS
PARADING AROUND IN MADNESS
BROKEN HANDS CANT HOLD THE WEIGHT
OF THE CONSEQUENCES

YOU CAN’T HIDE BEHIND FAITH
NO MATTER HOW YOU DISGUISE IT
THE MASK, IS TEARING AWAY
AND YOU CANNOT DENY IT

PASSING JUDGEMENT AND CASTING STONES
KILLS RELATIONS AND BREAKS THEIR BONES
EACH TRANSGRESSION FINDS A HOME
VICTIMS SUFFER THE SEEDS YOU’VE SOWN

WE WILL WAGE THIS WAR AGAINST YOU ALL
THIS ABHORENCE MUST CEASE TO EXIST
WE WILL WAGE THIS WAR UNTIL THE END

FORKED TONGUE TWISTS THE TRUTH
YOUR RHETORIC CAN’T HIDE IT
BLIND FAITH DRIVES YOUR HATE
WE KNOW ITS ALL JUST BULLSHIT
Track Name: Cold Water Army
STRAIGHT EDGE IS NOT A PASSING PHASE
WE CHAMPION ITS VIRTUES EACH AND EVERY DAY
ITS ALWAYS STOOD FOR POSITIVE CHANGE
THE DRUG FREE LIFESTYLE IS HERE TO STAY

“SO HERE WE PLEDGE. PERPETUAL HATE, TO ALL THAT CAN, INTOXICATE”

STRAIGHT EDGE IS NOT A PASSING TREND
THE VIOLENCE AND HATE MUST COME TO AN END
WE MUST PROGRESS PURIFY WITHIN
STAND AS ONE WITH PURPOSE AGAIN

“SO HERE WE PLEDGE. PERPETUAL HATE, TO ALL THAT CAN, INTOXICATE”

THIS IS MY PROMISE TO MYSELF
THIS IS MY SOLEMN VOW

(feat. Ryan Wieser)
SOLDIERS OF THE COLD WATER ARMY
MARCH TOGETHER SIDE BY SIDE
WITH AN OATH OF PRIDE AND RESPECT
WE SPREAD OUR MESSAGE WORLD WIDE
WE COME TOGETHER IN TIMES OF NEED
COMMITTED FOREVER WE’LL ALWAYS BE
A BETTER PATH FOR YOU AND ME
COMMITTED TO LIVE LIFE DRUG FREE

THIS IS MY PROMISE TO MYSELF
THIS IS MY SOLEMN VOW

I CARVE THIS X INTO MY HEART
