Track Name: Kick It
Took your pay, took your home
Paid their way, sold your soul
No remorse no reprise
Only force, only lies
Come together, strength in numbers

CHORUS
And it's all starting now
Thought they'd kick us, thought they'd beat us
While we're down

Keep your rights hold them safe
Show your strength keep your faith
Off the rails, no delay
Tip the scales, disobey
Breaking down the barricades

CHORUS
And it's all coming out
Thought they'd kick us, thought they'd beat us
While we're down
Kept us hopeless, kept us tame
Thought they'd never take the blame
But it's all over now

And it's all starting now
Thought they'd kick us, thought they'd beat us
While we're down
Kept us hopeless, kept us tame
Thought they'd never take the blame
But it's all over now
Track Name: Renegade
Same old town, different day
Weathered faces tired frames
Routines are bursting at the seams
With broken spirits, broken dreams
But there's always one more step in the way
Only you can fuel your fire

CHORUS
I am the Wanderer, I am the Renegade
Reflected in every mirror
Seen out of hidden corners
I am the Traveler. I am the choices made
You say this life was not your doing
You built this road, you'll walk it all your days

A hand of cards you cannot change
Dealt a simple life a wasted end
The game you played went on too long
The bets you've made now all feel wrong
It's time to fold or time to go all in
Don't say you have what you desire

CHORUS

You hid away for so long
So take the chance before it's gone

CHORUS

I, I, I, won't give it up
I, I, I, won't give it up
I, I, I, won't give it up
I, I, I won't ever give it up
Track Name: Tide Is Rising
Drop a stone, ripples form
Currents spreading like a rising storm
The edge is crumbling, drops away
Should I swim or let the current take me in?
Follow it, follow this road
It's all I know

CHORUS
Thought I could hold myself back
But the change I'm feeling, coming closer to breaking down
Now I found
Built my levies high but the tide is rising until I drown

Tributaries, a choice to make
No guide, no clear path to take
Safe harbors were left far behind
But I'll come home in my own time
Uncovering, I'm uncovering my soul
Should I change my whole world?

CHORUS

Thought I could hold myself back
But the change I feel coming closer to breaking down
Built my levies high but the tide is rising
Built my levies high but the tide is rising
And I'll break it, I'll break it all down
Track Name: We Are Legion
Subtle hints and whispered thoughts creep in my head
To direct, dismay, evade, explain
We don't deserve this, we're not worthy
How can you understand we say, this history is written true
What was remains it's nature's way there's no place for you

We're not fearless but stand ferocious
Lions in a den of wolves
Iconize discard as worthless
Patronize then shame and curse

CHORUS
We are Legion, many strong
Could not defeat us so they turned us on our own
Unify destroy this hate
They can say that we're too late
But we are Legion and we are not afraid

Modern times with new designs, new ways to change
You're too bright, too bold, too plain, too cold
The superficial takes us under
How can you understand we say
these battles fought were never won
Aged lies still hold their sway
But together they can be undone

We're not fearless but stand ferocious
Lions in a den of wolves
Iconize discard as worthless
Patronize then shame and curse

CHORUS x2
Track Name: 1000 Years
Darling I know that your bones hurt
You've been toiling in the dirt
But I promise you that the work we do is for love
That with faith, and passion
We will become what we dream of
And the life we're living
Is just a step above

CHORUS
It's been a thousand years since we began
We had a vision of where we would stand
But the sun has set so many times
And the truth is different in our eyes

Memories of hope placed in hollow dreams
Broken promise, empty schemes
Take my had we'll find a new life worth working for
With our faith, and passion
What is ours will never fade
And the cost we're paying
Will one day pave our way

CHORUS
It's been a thousand years since we began
We had a vision of where we would stand
But the sun has set so many times
And the truth is different in our eyes
So enjoy the ride and share the sights
To celebrate our living dream
It may be a different kind of life
But you were my missing piece

And if we fall can failure be the way we grow?
Not a wall built against a fear we'll always know
Uncertainty can't derail me as long as we can keep this hope
Through days and nights we will ignite and keep this dream alive

CHORUS
