Track Name: Strangled Into Gray
You get so set on such a narrow line
and do what your teachers say
But they've gone away
And all they've left you with is one big lie
Intended to keep us sane
Until we wake

So don't go chasing shots of whiskey every day
With all you wanted and loved strangled into gray
Do you fight what's real?
Do you want so much to feel...
But you can't?

You bear such weight...the so-called healthy life
You do what the doctors say
One dose each day
When too much pain flows from a so-called life
Well maybe its time to change
A choice to make

You can't go bigger, stronger, faster every day
With all you wanted and loved strangled into gray
Do you fight what's real?
Do you want so much to feel...
But you can't?

And on and on and on
You do what the teachers say
You're strangled into gray

And on and on and on
You do what the doctors say
You're strangled into gray

Come on!

You do what the teachers
who don't wanna teach us
And do what the doctors
who don't wanna treat us
And do what the preachers say
Track Name: Thunder
Nothing changes lives of lies
When culture's made of plastic
Instead of precious lives

Do we even wonder
Why we feel like this?
Come on, we see it on the adverts, baby
And just go buy it

Do you hear the thunder?
It's loud and clear
Will these cold walls of fear
Still keep us warm in here?

Nothing changes
And this cold spine
Is the property of strangers
Who wouldn't give a dime

Do we even wonder
How they stole our wit?
For some cheap corporate media entertainment
We just gave it

Do you hear the thunder?
It's loud and clear
Will these cold walls of fear
Still keep us warm in here?
I hear a storm out there
So let's just live in fear
