Track Name: Take a Stand
It seems like everyone you go
A buildings try to sell your soul
It seems no matter where you are
A sales pitch ain't that far

The world has become one big magazine
But the filler between the pages are getting bigger than the things we oughta read

[CHORUS]
We gotta take a stand; speak up
Or they'll tell you what you want
We gotta take a stand - don't give up
Till the damage gets undone
The world is changing
But not the way it should

There's a whole world to see
Beyond your twitter feed
It's like we're living in a dead man's town
It's hard to see while looking down

The world now revolves round distraction machines
The place that we're living is better
than anything you can see hiding behind a fucking screen

[CHORUS]

It doesn't matter where you live
Or where you go
As long as you're connected you're never alone

So take a stand for what's right
Because as long as they feed you and do what they want to you
you won't be living the life that you wanted to
Get up and leave all this bullshit behind because none of it's helping you reach out and get out alive

[CHORUS]
