Track Name: Every Act of Aggression is War
From relationships of lovers to family arguments
War is always close to us, the nightmare never ends
In this sickening world with confusion in our heads
War is always here in reality, in threat

I pity the children, they never asked for war
Like young soldiers who don't even know
What they are fighting for
Hate and fear in the eyes, war is all they ever see
The ones who pay the price are people just like you and me

Every act of aggression is war
Track Name: Fear
What happened to love?
What happened to our compassion?
Are we really so muted
We've turned our backs and lost all our passion?

In fear of failure
We carry on our lives
In fear of death
While from the inside we've already died

We're told we're worthless
And no one cares
We keep making excuses
For others as well as ourselves
Track Name: System Resistance
With their guns and bombs and wars
They try and kill away our passion
We're told what's pretty for our eyes
By industry of fashion
Money makes the world go 'round, it shows us what we need
Needs enough for everyone but not for all our greed
If no one breaks the rules
The rules will never change
If we give up all resistance
Things will always stay the same!

You have a beautiful body
You can call your own
But from the very beginning when the seeds are sown
Turning you into something you don't want to be
Where you're not you and I'm not me
They turn us into something we don't want to be
A part of this sick society

In social structure that's built on greed
We're showed what we want
We're told what we need
We're given the goals to keep us content
In achieving the scale of the money that's spent

It's easy to give in and give up the fight
But these are our lives, they are ours to decide

It's time to wake up and take back your life
Resist with your will, it's yours to decide
