Track Name: Floodgates
Imagine a world that was once paradise
Turned sour by the life that surrounds it
Broken by the ones
Who were left there to watch over her
If you don't change yourselves
Expect to end yourselves
Our guardians standing tall
Trees older than the wisest of men
Will cower at our feet
As they bear witness to our machines

We won't stand aside and let the world go by
The axis we spin on has been left to rot away
So keep burning it down
Keep bleeding it dry
We will stand by her side

We've tainted the ground that we walk on
We've poisoned the air that we breathe
With the scent of our industry
So keep burning it down
Keep bleeding it dry
Consuming what was never yours
You'll have to face your judgment
Leviathan

We won't stand aside and let the world go by
The axis we spin on has been left to rot away
So keep burning it down
Keep bleeding it dry
Open the floodgates
Track Name: Thrones
Don’t feed the animals, if you give us a chance, we will rip you to shreds
Look into my eyes, and tell me you’re not a coward
If you keep running your mouth, we’re gonna put you in your place
You’re not bigger or better, you’d better remember, you’re the weakest of them all

We are the revolution
Open your eyes, I dare you to try and
See the world from our side
Start something new

Start something new, open your eyes to what’s around,
You can’t keep living like this
You can’t keep living like this, you’re on a podium
And it’s about to fall
You can’t keep living like this, you’re on a podium
And it’s about to fall

We are the revolution
Open your eyes, I dare you to try and
See the world from our side
Start something new
If you keep running your mouth
We’re gonna put you in your place
‘Cause you’re the weakest of them all
Start something new

Karma’s gonna catch you and stab you in the back
Because your allies aren’t your friends and
You’re worse off than you think
Get over yourself, start building a wall
Invisible friends won’t save you from the storm
You can’t keep living like this

We are the revolution
Open your eyes, I dare you to try and
See the world from our side
Start something new
If you keep running your mouth
We’re gonna put you in your place
‘Cause you’re the weakest of them all
Start something new
Track Name: Mirrors
Storm clouds hanging over my head
Like a virus
There’s no cure for my flaws
I let my greed become the person I am
I lost it all trying to find something more
I threw my honour aside for the glory
For fifteen minutes of fame
At the end of the road, left with questions unanswered
Where do I go from here?
I’m just the shell of the man that I used to be
I’m just a fraction of the person I once was

Maybe one day
I’ll look in the mirror and see what a
mess I’ve made
These reflections are haunting me
These reflections are haunting me
Right through the cracks
There’s no way out
Looking for a way out
looking to find out how
There’s no way out now

I can’t keep
living in the past
The man in the mirror is who
I’ve become
It is who I am
This is who I am
I can’t let the choices I’ve made
Be the death of me,
the death of me
I won’t send myself to an early grave

Maybe one day
I’ll look in the mirror and see what a
mess I’ve made
These reflections are haunting me
These reflections are haunting me
Right through the cracks
There’s no way out
Looking for a way out
looking to find out how
There’s no way out


The cracks in the glass
Define the person that I’ve grown to be
I am my own reflection

This is who I am

Maybe one day
I’ll look in the mirror and see what a
mess I’ve made
These reflections are haunting me
These reflections are haunting me
Right through the cracks
There’s no way out
Looking for a way out
looking to find out how
There’s no way out now
Track Name: Prophets
You can’t keep us tethered like a hound to your throne
Don’t devote yourself, don’t destroy yourself
The prophets that guide us
are using us to turn the wheels of their war machines
Leading us all to our deaths
And I will scream to the sky
I am not a number in your game


Who are you to tell me
To get on my knees
And repent for the choices I’ve made
I am not ashamed of the things I’ve done
I am not ashamed of the person that I’ve become

I’ll keep my faith but in my own way
I’m not ashamed of the person that I’ve become
You’re only seeing what they want you to see
I’m now a shadow of the person that they chose me to be

If your faith is with them then you’re better off dead
Voices preach the word
Of self-made idolatry
What will you do with your faith
When the word of the lord wipes the smile from your face
Heaven help you if you still think there’s a God
Heaven help you if you still think there’s a God

I’ll keep my faith but in my own way
I’m not ashamed of the person that I’ve become
You’re only seeing what they want you to see
I’m now a shadow of the person that they chose me to be

Heaven help you if you still think there’s a journey
There’s not, there’s not
And I will scream to the sky
I am not a number in your game


I’ll keep my faith but in my own way
I’m not ashamed of the person that I’ve become
You’re only seeing what they want you to see
I’m now a shadow of the person that they chose me to be

I am not ashamed
