Track Name: Drowning
Sometimes it’s hard to keep our heads above the water
When we’re drowning on the air in our lungs
The constant struggle with the weight upon our shoulders
Dragging us even further down
It’s the beginning of the end
When we pray for shallow water and not dry land
And where’s our hope?
When we’ve been set adrift and left to choke?
We’re choking
We’re drowning
We’re struggling
Is there any hope?
Is there any hope; When we’re treading water
Just to stay afloat?
We’re treading water
Just to stay afloat
Is there any hope?
Is there any hope?
Is there any hope?
I know it’s hard to keep our heads above the water
When we’re drowning on the air in our lungs
The constant struggle with the weight upon our shoulders
Dragging us even further down
Track Name: Dear Washington
We're all caught in a landslide
Heading for the edge, how long til we fall?
And are we on the right side?
There's been so many times we've been wrong
So who's in and who's out?
It changes with the wind so I've lost count
Who's our messiah, who's our pariah?
It's getting harder to figure it out
How much longer
Til this is gone?
How much longer
Til this is all gone?
Til this is all gone
Dear Washington
Dear Washington
Dear Everyone
Is this all gone?
Is this all gone?
Is this all gone?
Track Name: The Cost Of Doing Business
Just point the finger, give us a name
We don’t care who it is, we need someone to blame

You wanted war

This is the cost of doing business; this is the price we pay
We make deals with the devil and set the world ablaze

You wanted war: and you got it

You wanted war
You wanted war… and you got a war
Track Name: The Wheels Of Progress
Is this wrong? Is this right?
Humanity sacrificed
Progress, technology
Our cancer is growing:
We die oh so slow
We die oh so slow


Do we understand? Do we know?
The rot inside us grows
Forget the consequence, forget the human face
The wheels of progress crushing

You better get in line, you better get in line, you better get in line.
You better get in line, you better get in line, you better get in line.
To die oh so slow
We die oh so slow

Can you feel those wheels turning?
Heavy are the wheels of progress, heavy are the wheels of progress, heavy are the wheels of progress, crushing are the wheel of progress, yeah
