Track Name: In Good Hands(Let Them Hate Us)
WE'RE NEVER ONES TO BOAST ABOUT ANYTHING
THE ONES TO BRAG
CAUGHT WITH YOUR BACK AGAINST THE WALL
YOU WONT BE ALONE TO TAKE THE FALL
NEVER WINNERS NEVER LOSERS
NO MEDALS NO DEFEAT
KNOCK US DOWN WE STAND TALL
A BAND OF BROTHERS AT YOUR CALL
BECAUSE WHEN YOU THINK YOU'RE ALONE
YOU'LL FIND THAT YOU ARE RIGHT AT HOME
WHEN YOU'VE GOT NOTHING THERE'S NO ONE ELSE YOU'LL EVER NEED
WHEN YOU THINK YOU HAVE NOTHING
THAT EVERYTHING IS LOST
YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF IN GOOD HANDS

YOU KNOW WE'RE JUST LIKE JUST A LITTLE BIT FUCKED UP
AND I KNOW THAT MOST OF THE TIME WE CAN BE TOO MUCH
BUT WELL NEVER TURN OUT BACK ON YOU
NEVER LOSE YOUR TRUST
AND IF THAT'S NOT WHAT'S GOOD ENOUGH
THEN LET THEM ALL HATE US

I'VE GOT A FEW FRIENDS THAT I CANT SEE
SPEED DEMONS WITH ANGELS WINGS
DEALS WITH THE DEVIL AND LOST THE BET
HE HASN'T DEALT MY HAND YET
THERE'S A FEW MORE THAT I DON'T TALK TO
BUT THEY'RE WITH ME IN MY HEART
A PHONE CALL AWAY AND THAT'S A START
CAUSE WHEN YOU THINK YOU ARE STRANDED
YOU FIND YOU'RE IN GOOD COMPANY
YOUR LEFT WITH NOTHING THERE'S NO ONE ELSE YOU'LL EVER NEED
WHEN YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE WORTHLESS
IT'S A VALUE THEY CANT STEAL
YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF IN GOOD HANDS
Track Name: Thinly Layered Veil
FRUSTRATION THROUGHOUT THE NATION
THE NEWS MEDIA ON THE TV STATION
IS FEEDING YOU MISINFORMATION
TO DISTORT YOUR VIEW OF THE SITUATION
THEY'RE FUCKING UP THE INS
THEY'RE FUCKING UP THE OUTS
THEY'RE NOT FEEDING YOU THE INFORMATION YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
BUT I KNOW THAT YOU KNOW BETTER THAN THIS

YOU KNOW BETTER
YOU'VE KNOWN LONGER
TO SEE WHAT THEY MEAN THROUGH A THINLY LAYERED VEIL
AND YOU'LL MAKE THEM HANG ON EVERY WORD THEY SAY

RATIONALIZATION HAS SEEM TO GO THE WAY OF THE CAVEMAN
NOW THAT NEWS IS ENTERTAINMENT
EVEN IF THE FACTS ARE MISLEADING
I CAN'T SAY THAT ITS LIES BUT YOU KNOW ITS NOT THE TRUTH
THEY'RE FEEDING YOU THE INFORMATION
BUT THEY DON'T HAVE THE PROOF
AND I KNOW THAT YOU KNOW BETTER THAN THIS
Track Name: Adapt & Survive
WAS IT ALWAYS LIKE THIS
OR WAS I JUST TOO YOUNG TO SEE
WHEN YOU THINK YOU'RE GETTING YOUR BIG BREAK
THE RUG GETS PULLED FROM BENEATH YOUR FEET
BECAUSE IT SEEMS THAT ALL THE HONOR IS GONE
WHO'S RIGHT WHEN NO ONE'S WRONG
THIS SCENE HAS GONE STALE
IF ITS ALL ABOUT THE DOLLAR SIGNS
WE'VE PAID OUT OF OUR TIME
THIS IS DOOMED TO FAIL

SO MUCH FOR THE RECORD DEALS
SO TO HELL WITH THAT
WE'LL JUST SIT BACK AND WATCH OUR DREAMS FALL FLAT
ADAPT AND SURVIVE
ITS HOW WAS GET BY
WE'RE VICTIMS TO A BRAND NEW EVOLUTION

DON'T EXPECT TO BE NOTICED
FOR THE WORK THAT YOU DO
NO RESPECT WILL BE AWARDED TO THE BAND THAT PAYS THEIR DUES
BECAUSE ITS ALL ABOUT THE TICKET SALES
TRY AGAIN IF YOU FAIL
LIKE OUR FACEBOOK PAGE
SELL THOSE TICKETS TO YOUR MOM
DON'T STOP UNTIL THEY'RE ALL GONE
THIS IS OUR BIG BREAK
Track Name: The Fall
THAT'S WHEN HE TOLD ME YOU CAN NEVER COUNT YOUR DAYS
THIS LIFE HAS BEEN LAID OUT FOR YOU BY THE CHOICES THAT YOU MAKE
LIKE A COWARDS CHOICE TO BURY HIS HEAD DEEP IN THE SAND
THESE ARE THE MOMENTS THAT WILL MAKE YOU THE MAN YOU ARE OR NOT
YOU'VE KNOWN THIS FROM THE START

SO TELL ME CAN YOU READ THE WRITING ON THE WALLS
CAN YOU CLIMB HIGH ENOUGH WITHOUT FEARING THE FALL
THIS IS A CHALLENGE YOU MUST WILLINGLY ACCEPT
CAN YOU CLIMB HIGH ENOUGH WITHOUT FEARING THE FALL

THE ADVICE WAS TO LIVE EACH DAY LIKE YOUR LAST
YOU CAN STILL REWRITE YOUR FUTURES BUT YOU CAN'T OUTLIVE YOU PAST
THINGS WILL SEEM SO SIMPLE IF YOU STAY A STEP AHEAD
AND GREET DEATH WITH A SMILE WHEN YOU'RE ON YOUR FINAL BREATH
AS HE LAYS YOU DOWN TO REST

DONT FEAR THE FALL
THE LANDING IS WHAT COUNTS
PICK YOURSELF UP
WHEN YOU HIT THE GROUND
