Track Name: Break the Cycle of Oppression
Every city and every town is a product of genocide
The people who once thrived now forced into reservation to slowly die off
Forced to forget with assimilation now some don’t even know that we still exist
Learned from the sugarcoated lies of history books

Fight back
For those who have suffered
Against colonization
To stop the careless acts of destruction
Against so called progress

But the blood stained history will never fully wash away
So disconnected from the first people of a land
Their voices struggle to make a sound When their silenced by legislation
Caught in the middle of the storm yet no one realizes were still here

Break the cycle of oppression
Reclaim the land
Reclaim our future
Track Name: Hope
Get the fuck up
Make the stand
At all costs
Protect our homeland
Separated
Years ago
Divided by
A ballot vote

We will always stand with a fist
And hope will always exist
Never give up never give in
Continue to fight until we win
Track Name: Zombies
Slowly decaying
Soulless living corpses
Walking with no purpose
Dead inside only feeling hunger

This is what our future holds if nothing is done
This is what we are doomed to become
This is not what we are meant to be
We don’t want to be ZOMBIES!!!

No one will remember
Who we really are
Only seeing the remnants
Of forgotten people

This is what our future holds if nothing is done
This is what we are doomed to become
This is not what we are meant to be
We don’t want to be ZOMBIES!!!
Track Name: The Storm
Out there the lights never go out And the stars never shine
It’s always coming closer Now it’s at our door step
Will we continue to let our people be over run?

The storm is on the horizon its plain to see
All around the world people strive to be free
When will the madness stop?
Or has the greed completely taken over

How can you leave when there so much to be done
We must embrace our culture and never grow comfort in profits
The harsh reality that aches inside our bodies
Knowing some lose hope and blend in with the soulless

The storm is on the horizon its plain to see
All around the world people strive to be free
When will the madness stop?
Or has the greed completely taken over
