about

This is our first and only full length album. It is the culmination of a lot of hard work, long fights, and lots of love between five dudes. We couldn't be prouder of how it turned out, no matter how long it took to release. We hope that this album resinates in you and that you can take something away from it.

Beginnings end, endings don't.
A Children's Crusade

Track Name: Violent Future
there's an echo that surounds us all
from coast to coast it's touching everyone
piercing ear canals as angels fall
coast to coast, coast to coast

gloria
can we get the point

violent future's not our chosen path
but the truth remains a constant of the past
with ruby slippers and a heart of glass
it's built to last, built to last

gloria
can we get to the point

and then the skyline opened up
and through the clouds i saw the dust
that sits on every one of us
it's got you, it's got me, it's too much
Track Name: Words Unspoken
i wish i could describe, the darkness in your eyes
i know that you're worth more than me

my back is broken now
can words unspoken
be true
i'll leave it up to you

are we bending, are we breaking
are we holding on or should we leave it behind

i wish i could describe the darkness in your eyes
i know that you're worth more than me

my back is broken now
can words unspoken
be true
i'll leave it up to you
Track Name: Frozen Winter Cars
we're coming out from underground
not giving up, not shutting down
we're heading out across the fields
searching for answers we cannot feel

you are the one

our journey ends where you begin
so many questions, like how do i fit in

you are the one

we're hiding out in the frozen winter cars
(and suddenly)
outside the snowfall buries us
(it came to be)
and on and on we're marching towards the sun
(the universe was plain to see)

you are the one
Track Name: It's Not Ok
another year gone by i wonder if it's meant to be
i wonder if you realize that this means everything
sometimes we need to place the blame in someone else's hands
when all you wanted was another shirt to pin it on

the butterfly effect which we perceive to be the truth
is merely a mirage to bring us closer to you
if questions trap your thoughts like glass jars of fireflies
know it's God's will be still and in good time

a messenger will bring the news dose me up to make me choose
between the widow and recluse, cause either way i lose

it's not ok, it's not ok, it's not ok
it's not ok to say that you're the same as me
when you don't even know my name

we took the higher road this day was supposed to be about
a yearly walk we take toward recovering the doubt
another child wont make you happier inside
if it's God's will be still and in good time

you've done enough already

it's not ok, it's not ok, it's not ok
it's not ok to say
Track Name: Rebuilding Since '57
atop the mountain i gave my speech
i saw a chance, a chance to extend my reach

and i don't need a salesman to tell me
that freedom is not really free
i can see the sacrifice that is needed
to keep the peace

atop the mountain i washed my hands clean
and for a moment i forgot about everything

i can feel the energy offset my balance
and begin to fight
there was a devil on my shoulder
an angel to my right
who has the jurisdiction here
the darkness or the light
my God i need you now more than ever
i need you here by my side
Track Name: What Could Have Been
i watched you throw it away
and now i don't have a clue
what to say when they ask if it's true
i guess it is what it is

you got me where you want me

cause we've all made mistakes
they gave us stories to tell
you've kept me at arms length
saying i'll deal with this by myself

you got me where you want me

if i could do it again
i wouldn't change a thing
so i linger on what could have been
i guess it is what it is

you got me where you want me

then in my darkest days
it couldn't be ignored
i pushed my help away
with my disarm

i wish you'd let me in
so i could try my best to help
but you've kept me at arms length
saying i'll deal with this by my self

then in my darkest days
it couldn't be ignored
i pushed my help away
into their arms
Track Name: Pneumonia
if your house is already burned to the ground
and the ashes of your life start swimmin around
in the air
your heart will break beware

cause all your life you've been kept in a hole
the water was drained but your heart turned cold
with despair
your love will need repair

please don't leave me
cause my lungs need you to breath
kira can we leave tonight
so the man in the box will be alright

now i'm standing alone in a parking lot
this is the hardest fight that i have ever fought
for you
oh God you know it's true

i've been kicking around some charred photographs
and i've come across the one
of the time you laughed it off
Track Name: Monsters
blame yourself
burry the brave boy you know there's no one else

burn, burn your skin
rely on anger believe in heroin

so who am i

the polaroids of past mistakes
painted blue, left in the wake
evaporate, evolve beyond
they will still be here when you have gone
so watch me slowly disappear
and ask yourself why do you fear
the ship is going down in flames
take the hurt, take the pain

black and blue
beneath the bruises a body waits for you
it's back, the phantom limb
rely on anger, believe in heroin

we're only monsters
Track Name: Lost
i've seen love, and i've seen hate
i've seen people marching to make a difference much too late
now i'm a star in the false parade
i'm marching to make a difference much too late

i'm lost
just stay with me tonight

anyways it's independence day
another fight i missed and now it's time to celebrate
i'm a renegade, a turncoat crusade
i'm marching to make a difference much too late

i'm lost
just stay with me tonight

live another day to die another way

throw you're arms around me
throw you're arms around me
please come back and haunt me
see it through
Track Name: Pitchforks
draw the line, split the lot
separate what you've got
it belongs to the state
of michigan

forty acres west of detroit
the family farm was sold tonight
to a city boy who was looking
to build a highway

he said talk all you want
in the end we're gonna do this my way
now you could go for broke
but i suggest you take the money and walk away

that's when my father said
that's why we put the pitchforks on the corners of our house
the superstitious spells to keep the devil out

hurry up, move your feet
you've only got two weeks
it belongs to the state
of michigan

he said think what you want
everyone's entitled to their opinions
i'm just a white collar boy with a ring
trying to make a livin

that's when my father said
that's why we put the pitchforks on the corners of our house
the superstitious spells to keep the devil out

i could feel the love in the room
as the wrecking ball came through my window
leaving me ?????????????
??????????
now we can talk all you want
or we can make this deal real simple
