  • Without competition there is no progression
    Society won't wait for statues to break free of their brass case

    Carry the point
    Be the focus
    Notice the inevitable
    Times make changes
    Humanity makes mistakes, mistakes
    Make answers
    We live to learn

    We live to learn, we live to love, we live to die
    Learn to question why
    We live to learn, we live to love, we live to die
    Learn to question why (why)

    We're so scared to take the first step, so scared (so scared)
    (Why) We're so scared

    The ground you walk on isn't a straight line
    And neither are the toils of life
    Standing still, just to watch it pass you by
    To watch the world pass you by

    We are pushing for change
    Waiting for the world to take notice
    Breaking down barriers as we strive for a better way

    With determination we'll march on in protest
    With determination we'll see this through
    Evolve or die
    Move on or drown
    Evolve or die
    Move on or drown
    Drown!
    Drown!
    Evolve or die
    Move on or drown (or drown)

    History's greatest generation
    Will be removed by the Earth's most advanced
    Your battles will become our peace
    Your lies shall become our truth
    We will replace the old guard with the new
    Your battles will become our peace
    Your lies shall become our truth
    Your battles will become our peace
    Your lies will become our truth!

    Without competition there is no progression
    Society won't wait for statues
    To break free of their brass case
    Evolve or die Writer/s: BRENT GERALD RAMBLER, DUSTIN CHAD DAVIDSON, JOHN BENJAMIN BRUBAKER, MATTHEW WILSON GREINER, WILLIAM JACOB LUHRS
