Another teaser song off of our upcoming record "Making Monsters"

lyrics

This city that never sleeps
She lies awake at night alone, staring at the ceiling wondering
"Why so many give their lives to the
greedy corporate enterprise, when they're so clearly undeserving?"

Oh, oh, give 'em hell, and
Oh, oh think for yourself, and
Oh, oh, don't be scared of what your life may bring.
You were meant for bigger, better things.

Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life.
Pack your dreams in a suitcase, and leave those awful doubts behind.
Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life.
It's not too late to clean your slate, so what's there to decide?
Time can make you money, but money won't buy back your time.
So take your life back.

This city's still tossing and turning,
she's still awake, as she rubs her eyes and sighs,
scared now of impending morning.
Dull routine, well oiled machine, be the cog this world wants you to be.
Continue making others money.

Oh oh, fight the good fight, and
Oh oh, don't just sit tight, and
Oh oh, there's more to life than profits, and cha-chings.
You were meant for bigger better things.

Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life.
Pack your dreams in a suitcase, and leave those awful doubts behind.
Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life.
It's not too late to clean your slate, so what's there to decide?
Time can make you money, but money won't buy back your time.
'Cause you are worth it.
Take your life back.

Oh, oh, take it away, and don't be afraid of it.
Oh, oh seizing the moment is all what you make of it.
Oh, oh, hit it full throttle, and don't slam the brakes on it.
Oh, oh oh!

Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life.
Pack your dreams in a suitcase, and leave those awful doubts behind.
Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life.
It's not too late to clean your slate, so what's there to decide?
Time can make you money, but money won't buy back your time.
'Cause you are worth it, you deserve it,
Take your life back.

This city that never sleeps
She lies awake at night alone, staring at the ceiling wondering why?
