Track Name: Present Tense
We strive to see our actions justified
To have an imprint left behind
But we waste our breath debating the strength of our side
When the focal point should be
On supporting those in need
And solutions that will bring stability

Rather bicker and berate
Than build a better day
We’re deluded and avoid any consensus we can make
But put all that aside
And forces can align
Create the path, controlling the design we want
And cease to flaunt, not choosing sides, but doing whats right

We are not innocent
We’re far from forgiven
Problems are present tense
Despite your stance, it’s all the same
We’re so caught up in it
Callous and complicit
While the poor and the desperate
Need real relief and not these games

We grow beyond the boundaries that we know
Beyond the biased and shallow
Becoming more than what our alliances show
There is no one free from fault
Everyone must play they’re part
The hardest thing is finding the place to start

Rather bicker and berate
Than build a better day
We’re deluded and avoid creating designs we want
And cease to flaunt, not choosing sides, but doing whats right
Track Name: Charm Offensive
You claim that this is the only way
And discredit our concerns
While fumbling diplomacy
And ignoring lessons learned

And I'd love to believe it's true
But your reputation precedes you

Never bat an eye
Never crack a smile
Never show your doubt
Where's your alibi?
Are you filled with pride?
Is this how you planned it out?

You swore on your good intentions
A departure from the past

And I'd love to believe in you

Is this your charm offensive?
Are you tired and giving up?
Track Name: Hera
Suffer from selective sight
An image in decline
Find it so compelling
A counterfeit, a surrogate
A reason to covet
Convinced of my own failings
And it wears me out, becomes all I think about
And it wears me down, this rivalry

On the surface, it seems perfect
But I'm stuck in competition
Feel worthless, with no purpose
Your joy my obsession

The simple serenity to dwell on jealousy
But we're never satisfied
Because I'm caught in, caught in the lie

No matter what, never enough
Can't seem to shake it off
I suffer from your luxury
And it wears me out, becomes all I think about
And it wears me down, this rivalry

Always count your blessings
And never count on mine
Leaves me second guessing
And fear I'm falling behind

Even if I could get there
This still would follow me
Find something new to compare
A never ending envy
