Track Name: Dolls + Thugs
Oh, there goes the neighbourhood
The only thing I truly understood
Relegated to the claws of dolls and thugs
The pillaging of paradise
A new monetary device
Release the soul, increase the price
And watch the light fade from our eyes

You could choose to just stand by
Celebrate the end at the scene of the crime
We'll be insects fighting giants, like David and Goliath
A battle we can't hope to win
We're ushering the fallout in

Now the jesters take the throne
The kings and queens aren't laughing anymore
They hang on bated breath to see what happens next
A parody of poetry
Recycled mob mentality
A hollow host, an empty beat
The same old record spinning on repeat

You could choose to just stand by
Celebrate the end at the scene of the crime
We'll be insects fighting giants, like David and Goliath
A battle we can't hope to win
We're ushering the fallout in

We're fighting for our lives
They're fighting for a price
And even if we fail
We'll have them know we're not for sale

With the depth of a puddle
And the force of a typhoon
We watch helplessly as it's all consumed

And still you choose to just stand by
Celebrate the end at the scene of the crime
We'll be insects fighting giants, like David and Goliath
A battle no one ever wins
We're dust in a nuclear wind
Track Name: Evolve or Die
Change ain't always for the best
The best things always change
If there's one thing I've learned in this life
"The good never stay the same"
I've seen entire forests
Devoured by this flame
What a fool I was to think it wouldn't burn me

When your bones are dust
And this bridge is ash
Will you find the nerve
To relinquish the past?
When all of your excuses
Prove to be useless
What will you decide;
Evolve or die?
Evolve or die?
Evolve or die?
Evolve or die?

Part of me feels like we're worlds away
The other part feels like it was just yesterday
We sat around and plotted
Our masterful escape
I've learned that nothing comes to those who wait

When your bones are dust
And this bridge is ash
Will you find the nerve
To relinquish the past?
When all of your excuses
Prove to be useless
What will you decide;
Evolve or die?
Evolve or die?
Evolve or die?
Evolve or die?

Please tell me when
We became strangers in familiar skin?
The levees are paper thin
The flood waters are rising


When your bones are dust
And this bridge is ash
Will you find the nerve
To relinquish the past?
When all of your excuses
Prove to be useless
What will you decide;
Evolve or die?
Evolve or die?
Evolve or die?
Evolve or die?

Evolve or die!
Track Name: Welcome to Winnipeg
This town is hell on the eyes
This town is covered in ice
This town won't be my demise
There's no saving grace and it's no paradise

Crooks and robbers with no one to stop 'em
Murder Capital? Not our problem!
Asked to comment all that I'd have to say:
"Welcome to Winnipeg"
Crooks and robbers with no one to stop 'em
Murder Capital? Not our problem!
Asked to comment all that I'd have to say:
"Welcome to Winnipeg"

This town's a permanent stain
This town is the continent's drain
This town's a shame to the map
And to this town I will never come back!

Crooks and robbers with no one to stop 'em
Murder Capital? Not our problem!
Asked to comment all that I'd have to say:
"Welcome to Winnipeg"
Crooks and robbers with no one to stop 'em
Murder Capital? Not our problem!
Asked to comment all that I'd have to say:
"Welcome to Winnipeg"

This city's been defeated, the continent's heart is no longer beating
This city's been defeated, the continent's heart is no longer beating
This city's been defeated, the continent's heart is no longer beating
This city's been defeated, the continent's heart is no longer beating

Crooks and robbers with no one to stop 'em
Murder Capital? Not our problem!
Asked to comment all that I'd have to say:
"Welcome to Winnipeg"
Crooks and robbers with no one to stop 'em
Murder Capital? Not our problem!

Track Name: Blackest Night
I'm losing ground
I'm losing sight of everything I'd thought I'd found in you
And all the things I thought I knew were just there
To bend the truth, to make it seem
Like you're a decent human being
The cowards always throw up
The best smoke screen

In brightest day, in blackest night
You swore an oath, now make it right
When did your honour commit suicide?
You were my hero in the day
You chose to throw it all away (Okay)
In lieu of something safe

Our young eyes carved our fathers from blocks of brass
Time proved their skeletons more akin to glass
This illusion is hollow and I will not follow your footsteps of the cliff
I'll just bury my head in the sand at the edge of it

In brightest day, in blackest night
You swore an oath, now make it right
When did your honour commit suicide?
You were my hero in the day
You chose to throw it all away (Okay)
In lieu of something safe

A beast asleep deep in my veins
How much longer 'til it awakes?
And when we're finally face to face,
Will all my courage melt away?
