Zachary Di Stefano I've been hyped about this release since Disparity was only a Single on youtube. It drove me crazy not being able to have this in my collection. They drop some awesome music on this EP. It's edgy and stands out, a must have on my list! I'll be seeing these guys live as soon as I can. Favorite track: Occupy.

Track Name: Disparity
They're stoked about their own way of living,
They're fucking stuck in their own way of thinking.
What have I done to get there?
I'm questioning what they believe about success.
I refuse to be meaningless. I refuse to be.
We fight against what others think we are.
These are only bias imbedded in their tired skin

When will we stand up
Build a way of llving
In which we can recognize ourselves?
If only people could realize what's wrong

If one man changes everything,
I'll hang myself and no one will ever remember who I am
Or what I've done to get there again.

I am fucking lost in a society that I question.
I was often told that life is easy
But I truly think this is just a lazy lie
Life isn't easy.
We have to fight
Every day of our life.

One man's only power is to convince others to follow him
THINK ABOUT YOU FIRST!
They said, but they just don't get it!
That's not how it works!
THINK ABOUT YOU FIRST?
It's all about moving forward

"Believe me, if I could I would
But it's not the way it's made
And I can't do anything."

NO. I won't accept to hear these words again.
When will we make people understand
I won't accept to hear these words again.
It's time to take their place

---------------------
Track Name: Materials
I won't accept to hold or support any part of this weight
But I feel confident about the fact that I will be someone
So you don't have a word to say on who I am or on what my life will be

I'll be free.
Free or nothing.
I'll be free.
Free to take the time I need
And never regret what I will become.

Cause this is my life
You've nothing to say about it
This is my life
And I'll make my own way

I will be remembered for what I've done
No one will ever say I should've lived any other way

No one will ever tell me I missed an opportunity
I know they will say I had it made.

I'll be free to make my own decisions.
I won't take this weight over me.

I refuse to sink any deeper.
I'll follow my aspirations
I'm not afraid, no I'm not afraid

I will be remembered for what I've done
No one will ever say I should've lived any other way

No matter what you say
I will follow my aspirations
I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid

This is how
I will deserve your respect
This is how

---------------------
Track Name: Occupy
What we got to believe in is that we all get a chance to succeed. Achieve our goals and go far beyond. There's nothing we can't achieve.

We know that what stands over us isn't something we can control. But we can't surrender.

These hands are strangling me. People crying, they're desperate. These frozen eyes are seeking for me. They're screaming for a better world to live, a better life and better fate.
But I can't offer so much, they got to believe in me, I can't offer so much. The ground is starting to shake.

What we got to believe in is that we all get a chance to succeed. Achieve our goals and go far beyond. There's nothing we can't achieve.

Will you follow me through your destiny? Our path has changed for today! Will you lead this revolution? I can see their world fade away! They will fade away.
And I say that I can't make a change, no I can't make a sound.

There is nothing we aren't going to do to be free in a world that should be ours.
And there's nothing we aren't going to do to be free.

What is chaos if it's not made to change the way we live?

---------------------
Track Name: Apologia
We're not supposed to live and die
Without a sense of purpose
It's significant how a dream can change a life
So follow your heart, mind and soul

Stand up and scream what has meaning to you
Nothing can defy the truth
Nothing ever will make it change
Nothing ever will make it drown or choke

This intense sense of duty
This intense sense of pride
You can't ever take it away
Why would I follow your aspirations?

You could beat me up
I wouldn't change my mind
Whatever comes to me
I will accept to see

You could beat me up
I wouldn't change my mind
Whatever comes to me
I just can't be wrong on that point
I refuse to be the weak
I won't be the weak.

What's wrong? What is so wrong?
IT IS SO HARD to walk with confidence
When you don't know what is wrong
Neither have you known what is good?

I assume that when I'll die, no one will cry.
They'll all laugh over my dead body.
My heart and soul gone, none will, again, be forced to smile.
Please prove me wrong
