We would like to thank everyone who has supported us from day one. Without our friends and families, we never would have gotten this far. A special thank you to Justin Spaulding for his patience and determination throughout the recording process as well as Scott Garland for creating all of our graphic art. Finally, we would like to thank George and Donna Hopper for allowing us to use their home as a practice space since the very beginning.

Track Name: The Armada
Help me remember, all of the bullshit that was said
Did you consider, that we would make it in the end
Give up, you know we can't be stopped
Step up to meet your every challenge
Believe what you can't see,
We'll take the throne right from your feet
We found the light in the dark
I bet you never thought that we would have fought so hard
Track Name: Blackjack
Every night I lie awake, drifting farther away from myself,
I'll always wonder what made you turn away
I never meant for it to come to this
I lost my everything so I find it in this bottle,
Where it's empty and its cold,
And now there's nowhere else to go
Every time I seem to lose my place
I never seem to get a break
When will I learn?
When will I ever learn?
More pills, more fuel,
Fuel the desperate side of me
No pain, no gain,
Isn't that what they all say?
I take this hand, I play it every time
I dont care, where I end up tonight
I try to find myself, in everything that isn't good for me
Every night I lie awake hoping to see the other side of me
I know its there, just looking back through its colored world
I know its there
I have seen its face before
Now watch it disappear
I have seen a glimpse of shades,
now close your eyes to rest your sight
not bright nor faded, concentrate
Show your eyes and you'll see mine
I try to find myself, in everything that isn't good for me
What would you do, if you had no one left to save you?
If you had no one left?
When we have no one left to save us from the end
Can we believe its not the end?
Track Name: Karmageddon
If we're being honest, I'll admit I've made mistakes
I'm not proud of what I've done, but I'm proud of who I am
Watch your old life turn to ash
it's almost burned right through
from the depths comes a new life
We are going nowhere, if we stay here tonight
I wont be the one to take the fall again
We have to accept who we are and move on
I wont take the fall
'Cause it helps to survive
I know that I hurt you
But I hope you can understand
I know I'm not perfect
But I'm trying the best I can
For the longest time, I blamed myself
Say what you want but you'll need to feed
all of your addictions
Say what you want but you'll need to feed
your needs somehow
Every excuse, every cover up, only kills the flame
Say what you want but I think you know things will change
If you decide that your life is worth the fight, don't be ashamed
If you're alive you've got something to live for
I know that I hurt you
But I hope you can understand
I know I'm not perfect
But I'm trying the best I can
I don't want to blame myself
You promised change, but I don't see it
Why oh why did I believe you'd change?
Track Name: NMO
Fine, just run away, you'll never catch me they say
but I will find all the places you will hide and
I will put you at the top of my list and
I will take the last breath from your life
Is your life a waste? its always been such a case,
that doesn't mean you're safe
So, just run away and never turn your back
'cause what they say always turns out true
My sins were starting to relieve me
now I cant believe they've always been against me
I always find my target, don't think you've got away
with such relentless talent, it's worth the price I pay
Wait, I can hear them, they're counting the bodies
Their tires rolling to haunt me
Please, don't let the darkness control me
You're all I've got, you've got to help me
How dare you cross my path now? You must have some nerve
I've gone so long without you, don't think I need you now
Is everything you wanted everything you've ever said?
We tried to warn you now its time you lose your fucking head
Look me in the eyes and tell me I'm bluffing
You are all that I've got, you've got to help me

You know you cant be saved from all of the voices I hear in my head
You don't know what we've been through
They stripped us from our homes
I don't think that we'll make it out alive
I'll tell you what, you've passed the test
don't think we've always been this way
I'll tell you what, you made the choice
I still believe you've known I've always been this way
You crossed the line
Track Name: White Widow
You said you would stay but that was a lie
I'm starting to realize just why
Tell me your lies and I'll swallow them whole;
I have struck coal while searching for gold
Not as bright as you've always shined;
always the one that keeps an empty mind
Dive right into my life
See what's inside
Everbody says you're perfect,
But you're not worth it
No, I don't believe a word they say, not anymore
(I found the light, I found the life
I tried to show my side)
You cant place blame on me
You've crushed everything I could be
You're all the same, show me I'm wrong
I've been deceived for far too long
Over and over in my head,
pay all respect to the living dead
Run, run, run from all your problems
born from tasteless choices
Everbody says you're perfect,
But you're not worth it
No, I don't believe a word they say, not anymore
Everything I gave to you,
You spat in my face,
The moment I saw you there with him
Can we live with the mistakes we make?
No strings attached was it worth it?
Everbody says you're perfect,
But I don't believe a word they say, not anymore
Everything I gave to you,
You spat in my face,
The moment I saw you there with him
Track Name: Hour 51
Say goodbye to what's left of us
nothing more than a memory
You found a way, inside my head
We're still alive
You never let me be who I wanted
Oh how the hours pass they still haunt me
Day by day starting my life again
Will I ever be the same?
From the first time that I saw you,
I knew that I'd lose you
But I shouldn't dwell on it,
'Cause I know, I can do better than you
You better watch what you say I'll find you someday
You're a slave to my new found pride
All your life, you've made us all seem weak
I wont be that man
I will tear down those walls that held me back
I've had enough now tell me the truth
Don't you see, you let the anger in you blind your eyes
I thought I'd never see the end of this and now
I've just about found my way out of this
From the first time that I saw you,
I knew that I'd lose you
But I shouldn't dwell on it,
'Cause I know, I can do better than you
Not again
I wont be stopped
I've overcome my fears
Now, I see the brighter side of things
I never would have seen
I see it all
Tell me, what do you see?
Is it someone that makes you feel complete?
'Cause I killed that and woke up
The day that we broke up
(All those who left my life will be gone forever)
It's not the way to live
