Intro 01:38
A risk that we're all born to take The life we live and the choice we make Never accepting the life we're living The chance to change that we were given Revival starts with the youth  We know our task and we know the truth  It's time to change, it's time to grow The time is ours, it's time you know We're the New Heart Crew
Our time is now  I'm striving and fighting the ache  That comes from the pressure and urge to give way To the heartless, shallow and arrogant minds  The time is now to make a change  I know we could sit here and argue what it's really about  But I'm seeing the broken, rejected and I refuse to play hypocritical games When people feel hopeless and lost by your way We could make a difference but you stay the same You can hear the words but can you feel the change? You polish the outside and sharpen the knife  To carve your ideas of division in the backs of the ones who are needing us most  Just drop the blade, refuse to pick it up FEEL THE CHANGE You've got to feel the change  I know that this is worth the fight  I know you can hear the words but can you feel the change
There’s no going back from here with one less chain Talking down on my life choices; to separate from society  A refusal to take up worldly poisons, you say something's wrong with me, but I've got One less chain to this earth  One less chain to this earth  I’m too strong for your hollow thinking Take the hint and walk the other way I'm not interested in buying what you're selling me Refuse to break just to get though another day One less chain to this earth Straight edge
I remember the lies they said and the words they spoke into me Indoctrinate the fragile minds of youth then throw your chains on reality with this cycle of abuse Can you blame me for the scars I carry and the way that I turned out? Wasted my time on the assembly line Being fed straight into the devil’s mouth Corruption of souls, leaving them blind The system’s in place and you’re taking their minds It’s time for you to measure the cost of the lives destroyed and the innocence lost Look me in the eyes, tell me the truth Such spinelessness to corrupt the youth With this cycle of abuse I know those kids don’t mean nothing to you, man Cycle of abuse Look me in the eyes and tell me the truth
We've had enough Eyes are on the clock It's a sickness, a societal symptom The way we spend our time  Is it the weight we carry or the truth we bury As we grow weary chasing nickels and dimes Does it make any sense?  How we rush it all to fit our own personal needs Instead of taking a step to stop and breathe? I'm so sick of society  I'm at the end of my rope as the cycle repeats So I tie it in a noose around the neck of defeat It's time to dig deep for new clarity We need to break away (break free) Abandon the system; create your own way Change starts today They'll do anything to lead you back in Don't be led astray (hold fast) Take the time to find your identity Make today the day I'm not stopping now  Because time won't stop for me And the clock keeps on ticking
No More Hate 02:16
Intolerance will no longer stand This world of hatred and bigotry Condemning others by race It's closing in on our community I can feel the weight crushing me I can feel their hate binding us together We've been fighting for years but I still feel this pain Deep in my spirit, I'm going insane If we stand together and break down the walls We'll end this malevolence once and for all I can feel the weight crushing me I can feel their hate binding us together No more hatred here No more hatred here No more  No fear No more hatred here No more fear
Year after year, remaining true   Things will never change no matter what I do My fight’s with a world that I don’t understand My weapon of choice is this X on my hand Still hold my convictions like a razor blade  What's right, not just what's allowed  The time has come to separate from you And I found a way out Try to keep me in line, and still I choose  A total refusal to be like you
One by one we've fallen in line Pushed around, thinking forced to the side Now is our time to break the mold  Rebel against the lies we're told Change starts here and talk is cheap Standing together, building something unique Grown together, ties can't be unbound Bonded by the truth we've found  Power wielded in the hands of youth Take it back We know the truth
Unify 01:20
It’s time to unify Shattered, disjointed, the message has been forgotten  Prideful, judgmental, not meant to be like this We’re breaking at the seams Stuck in a rut Frame of mind distorted, closing shut Hoping everyday we can win this fight Praying everyday we can get this right Yet you sit and point blame about the speck in their eye but you fail to see that there's a plank in yours It’s time to put all division aside and realize that together we fight It’s time to reunite It’s time to unify It's time to reunite When united, we will stand But divided, we will fall Are you willing to put pettiness and bitterness aside so we can unify?
I ask myself "is it worth the cost?"  The one they've paid for years The words they wrote burned deep inside; The words still ringing in my ears Speaking my mind, I'm gonna sing it loud A refusal to blend in with the crowd Deep in my heart, I know what's true  Wouldn't know what to say if it wasn't for you Paving the way, the one I've always known The one that taught to me to stand for truth Even if I stand alone  Foundation laid to fight this fight, to face this dying world (pave the way) The ground they tread, the trumpet sound, the call I've always heard   The way I feel, can't keep it down, won't toss to the side (pave the way) They never did, so I never will, won't keep this flame bottled inside  We remember all the music That got us past the start The spirit of 88 Lives on in our hearts  But it's not over, it won't ever be over We all have a voice Will you stand on the sidelines or make a difference?  We all have a choice (NEW HEART CREW) They’re all gone but they’re not forgot
He lived his life, questioned everything Thoughts burning in his brain Couldn't escape the pain Looking for something that he couldn't achieve Taught to focus on actions, not the scars they would leave Never giving up on the progress he made Determined to find answers He refused to stay the same Clawing and fighting for something to hold Searching, a weary soul Nothing is left They all screamed as he walked alone into uncertainty  Nothing is left Sometimes the eyes of the blind cloud the ones that can see When will you learn?  Life is at stake One step then another, found his answers in time Growing strong from his doubt From his wandering refined A new man, confident in his right Discovering new courage from his ongoing fight When he finally let go of the legacy he built He found faith without fear And hope without guilt Finally at peace, he fell to his knees He looked up to the sky and screamed  I’ve overcome Didn’t give up when he walked alone into uncertainty He’s overcome Didn’t let the blindness compromise the way that he sees When will you learn? Life is at stake The choices you make Can change everything 
Still want me to remain silent  Not do what I know is right Want me to sit still, let this happen Give up before I've started the fight "When every blanket of security is taken from you, tell me where will you be?" I'll still be standing here, Rooted in these beliefs Rejecting high horse morality "Holier than thou" mentality Head is swelling Don't get this thinking Talking down on the seeking I won't get caught yelling while the hurting are still screaming on the ground  The time has come to open our minds Try to earn our own way but there's not enough time Pledging allegiance to a system of greed Perfection without grace can't be achieved  I still won't think twice about saving face Won't deny truth with no remorse
