Track Name: Crown Land
Welcome to the Empire
We built this city on stolen land
Did you forget somehow?
Nothing is sacred now
It’s blind faith in authority
From here on out
When the King falls
All eyes on the cage door
Where will your crown land?

I will spend my whole life
Paying off the interest, on the interest
of a land which you and I have no real claim
So give it up for guns, germs and stealing everything
From here on out
When the King falls
It's all eyes on the cage door
Where will your crown land?
Tonight the breeze carries a cold reason for change
It pleads, you shiver and hide inside your cage, confined
Your state of mind restrained and bound to serve the crown
So break out, escape, reclaim

So when the King falls
All eyes on the cage door
Where will your crown land?
Track Name: Seeking Escape
You should feel this
When the chemicals start to resonate
It’s a kiss from the sky
and a sure-fly way to get by
Aggressively sheds all my woes
I need you to know I'm a tangle of all frustrations

I know that I'm giving it all away
There's no tomorrow
I know, but I need this escape

When it started out scarred were we still so innocent
Now we're trying to be free
From the deep, dark, deeds of the past
Bottle them up, take this dose
Or a little bit of both

I know that I'm giving it all away, no tomorrow
I know, I just need this escape from today
Feel it grow like a weed then it takes over
I know, but I'm seeking escape

This is a war don't you know?
It's a 'Rat Park' show It's Anslinger's curse
It's the yellow press of Hearst
Well this war won't be won while they're scarring our young
While they're scarring our young
While they’re scarring - you should know
That we'll seek escape - like there's no tomorrow
Now you know why I'm seeking escape?
Track Name: Close The Shutters
Well if it isn't the 'Sunday takedown'
Sending me to the floor
All your insights could invite enough anger
That I might even write a letter
Sit down, strap in, prepare
A ‘looming menace’ is out there

I'm never gonna go outside again
Close the shutters

If there's ever 'alarming new trends'
Or the world is suddenly unfair
You are always there
Standing up to the sinners
While we sit and swallow it in
Together, let's name the villains

I'm never gonna go outside again
Close the shutters

May nothing ever get in the way
Of getting to the source of the blame
Or winning the ratings game
So if I hear a camera with an agenda
knocking on my door
Then I'm never gonna go outside

Outside? Never again
It’s just what I feared
I'm staying right here
Safe behind the glass
Track Name: Monsters
Generations spin again
I'm no longer scared of what's under the bed
So if you ever need me to,
I will scare away a few monsters now, for you

The vampire money lenders
Would try to bleed us dry every December
So young and naive
I never saw the constant battle
For something to eat
Or a little something under the tree

Generations spin again
I'm no longer scared of what's under the bed
So if you ever need me to, I will scare away
A few monsters now, for you

When one of us fell
Under the fog of a chemical spell
You marched right into hell
Bartered with the devil, traded all your castle walls
To save her
There was never a chance you could ever stand
To watch the fall of one of your own.
Ripped apart, you said:
'No use for a home if you don't have a heart'

Generations spin again
I'm no longer scared of what's under the bed
So if you ever need me to,
I will scare away a few monsters now for you

I know you gave your best years
Now the ghost in your joints brings you to tears
I wish I had a way to scare those ghosts for good
So you can walk around the neighbourhood again

A generation understands
I'm no longer scared
Of what's under the bed
So if you ever need me to
I will scare away a few monsters now for you

Generations spin again
I'm no longer scared
Of whats under the bed
So if I'm ever able to
I will scare away those monsters now
For you
