IT STARTS NOW

The time is now
Right here right now
To do what you can
To take a stand

It starts now!

For you to act, for you to get involved
There’s no more time left to sit back and watch
With all the injustices in the world
And everyone turning the other cheek
You have to step up and act
It’s your turn 

It Starts Now!

Don’t say ‘I’ll do it tomorrow’, when you can do it today
Don’t say ‘Someone else will take action’
Make today the first day
you make a difference
Make today the first day
That you care
That you care!

The time is now
Right here right now
To do what you can
To take a stand

It Starts Now!

IT
STARTS
NOW

IT STARTS NOW!

If you take anything from these words, from this band, from this show
It's that you can make a difference. Look into organizations like MADD and PETA. See what drugs are doing to your community, your brothers, your families and see how you can help. You can make a difference. 
And together, we can make a change

STOP THE REIGN

We gotta stop the reign
Of these addicting poisons
That are drowning our society
In hopelessness and death

We gotta stop the reign
Fill the cracks in the damn
We must forge on
And eradicate the source 

Fight them on their land
Fight them just the same
Throw away the rules
Beat them at their own game

Our fearless enemies
have no concern for life
money is the bottom line
and they'll stop at nothing

The fear grows
The brutality shows 
The futility grows
The chaos ensues

But, the fight must go on…

We gotta stop the reign
We gotta stop the death
We gotta stop the reign
 

BREAK THESE CHAINS

Break these chains!

Violence, the basis of their enforcement 
Money, the greed of their existence 
Trafficking, the course to their attainment
Leaving us to fight for our lives

The more power they gain
The more freedom we lose
We have to break these chains

Dominating, the U.S. drug trade
Sophistication, at the highest level 
Organization, we’ve never seen
Destroying the pure, feeding on the weak, 

The more power they gain
The more freedom we lose
We have to break these chains
Break these chains!

We – can – we can overcome!

Generating billion of dollars every year to grow their operations while displaying the bodies of their tortured victims in the streets to intimidate their rivals. We gotta teach our children to not walk this path and put an end to this suffering

The more power they gain
The more freedom we lose
The more power they gain
The more freedom we lose

Break these chains
Break these chains
Break these chains
Break these chains

BROKEN PROMISES 

My word is everything to me
This promise I’ve made 
I’ll stay true

My values, I hold up high
Integrity, sums up my life

Sure it’s your life and why should I care?
None of my business…no argument there
Say one thing then do another?
That’s the burden you’ll have to bare

What will you go against now?
What other statements have you made?
Is there any truth that you speak?
How can I believe anything you say?

What about the kids that look up to you?
What kind of message are you sending to them?
Isn’t there some kind of personal responsibility involved?
Where does it get you in the end?

Maybe you don’t care what other think
And maybe you don’t care if your words fall short
But, if it doesn’t mean that much to you, then don’t claim 
This message doesn’t need your support

We don’t need you to make a mockery of these ideals
But, give it the respect that it deserves
Whether you claim Vegan, Christian, God-Free 
anarchist, animal rights, Straight Edge…you’d better follow it thru if you want my respect…MY RESPECT!

My Respect!
My Respect!
My Respect!

Black Horizon
 
You've hit rock bottom
Nowhere to turn
No friends left to help
Rehab will be your salvation
 
Just saying you're in
Makes you feel better
That first committment
You feel you're cured
 
Black Horizon
looking forward falling back
Black Horizon
looking forward falling back

Well guess what
You come down off your high
and detox sets in
you begin to realize it's not as easy as you thought
 
You do your best to follow the program
you try your hardest to make it work
but, it's too tough and you're too weak
Another failure leaves
 
1 out of 100 people make it
and then they relapse
Rehab doesn't work
If you don't have the intelligence to stay away from drugs, you won't have the will to get off them.
 
Trapped In Your Mind
 
Have you ever thought about your life
after you've taken a life?
The guilt, the time, your conscience
 
Plenty of time to think
about what you've done
in your cell, in your mind
 
What about the family of your victim?
How do you face them?
What will you do? What will you say?
 
I'm sorry just isn't good enough.
 
You'll relive that moment a thousand times in your mind as you stare at the wall.
You're future is bleak as you watch your back
You've taken the fall.
 
And if you get out
There won't be a day
that goes by
When it's not on your mind
 
Will you want all that?
Next time you drink and drive
Think about it.

We Can't Be Silenced
 
Yeah, it seems like we keep screaming about the same old shit 
but, we'll keep screaming until our efforts make a difference!
and for all the dreams that are broken
and all the lives they take
We'll push back harder 
in order to enact change
 
And we can't be silenced
we can't be silenced

No!

We'll let the world know about our enemies
and we'll do something about it to stop these tragedies
 
And we can't be silenced
we can't be silenced
we can't be silenced
we can't be silenced

As the deaths go on
As the disease spreads
As the noose tightens
We'll be there until the end
 
we can't be silenced
we can't be silenced
 

Lifelong Dreams


You were gonna go to college

You were gonna get your dream job

You were gonna meet the perfect girl

But drugs and booze are all you saw


Lifelong dreams

Forgotten and lost

Lifelong dreams

Forgotten and lost


Replace your happy family

With drug addicts on the street

Replace your happy home

With a cardboard box with dirt under your feet

Replace your happy memories of family and friends

With memories of overdoses and death

And tragedy in the end


Lifelong dreams

Forgotten and lost

Lifelong dreams

Forgotten and lost


"what happened to my life?"

"what happened to my life?!?"


Lifelong dreams

Forgotten and lost

Lifelong dreams

Forgotten and lost


Blind Eye 


More education

Equals less self destruction

We gotta-


Teach more in schools

About the facts on drug abuse

Show them the results

Of what we've learned


Teach them more

About alcoholism

Show them the truth

Of what we've learned


Turn a Blind eye

Ignore it and it stays the same

Turn a blind eye

and you're the one to fucking blame


Teach them more

About big tobacco

And all their fucking lies

Teach them more

About this life and death

Let them learn about their lies


Turn a Blind eye

Ignore it and it stays the same

Turn a blind eye

Turn a Blind eye

Ignore it and it stays the same

Turn a blind eye

and you're the one to fucking blame


Ignorance is no excuse

Not to enact change

Pretending it doesn't exist

Won't make it go away

Forgetting the images

Embedded in your mind

Cant work towards a positive change

Don't turn a blind eye


Zero Tolerance


Stay the fuck away from our children

Stay the fuck away from their schools

Don't push that shit on them at that age

Just leave them alone

Noone gives a fuck about you


Zero Tolerance

It's not your life

Zero Tolerance

Back the fuck off


So innocent at that age

Their minds an open book

They don't need to be pushed down the wrong path

Just because it's the path that you took


I don't fucking care what you do

by yourself or with your friends

but don't prey on the young

It'll catch up with you in the end

Zero Tolerance

It's not your life

Zero Tolerance

Back the fuck off


Stay the fuck away from our children

Stay the fuck away from their schools

Stay the fuck away from our children

Stay the fuck away from their schools


Zero Tolerance

It's not your life

Zero Tolerance


Away x


 From the first hit

your world turned black

another life unfolded

and you'll never go back


Just one little white rock

that's all it takes

for an imminent downfall

to which there's no escape


Away - Takes you away

Away - Takes you away


The high you'll always crave.

The addiction you'll fight until your grave.

Lifeless stares off into space

Haunting nightmares, endless pain.


There's never enough, you need more.

Paranoia sets in as you lock the door.

Hit after hit as you fan the flames

Your eyes roll back in your head as it takes you away


Away - Takes you away

Away - Takes you away


You're gone and noone cares
