about

One of the best parts of music to me is that it's so universal and open to interpretation. Each song can literally mean something different to a person, depending on the person and what they perceive and get out of it.

I just wanted to give you all a little insight behind the lyrics to the songs on Urban Warfare and let you know where my head was at the time I was writing them, so check out the notes before the lyrics of each track.

Just like all other KLANK songs, these songs are real in that they are based on real life and real life situations and scenarios that we all encounter in our 'day-to-day'. May you not only enjoy the songs, but also enjoy seeing where they actually originated from! — Daren "KLANK" Diolosa

Track Name: A Call to Arms
It has been said that those who did not learn from history were doomed to repeat it.

We are here because we HAVE learned. And we reuse to repeat the mistakes of yesterday. The time has come for revolution.

And we must RISE... Rise up and fight because out there its Urban Warfare and this is A CALL TO ARMS.

To all who would join and take up the cause, we must unite.... UNITE with one goal...

VICTORY!!!
Track Name: Unamused
Unamused by the words and the things that you say
'Cause I don't really care 'bout the games that you play
No I don't...

Save your voice
You ain't telling me nothing
You only speak
So that you could say something

The same old things
That come outta your head
You make me feel
Like I'm better off dead

Unamused by the words and the things that you say
'Cause I don't really care bout the games that you play
No I don't...

Unamused
Unamused
Unamused
Unamused

So step back
You ain't selling me nothing
You only speak
So that you could say something

Talking to you
Is like being abused
So save your breath
Cause I'm unamused

Unamused by the words and the things that you say
'Cause I don't really care bout the games that you play

Unamused by the words and the things that you say
'Cause I don't really care bout the games that you play
No I don't...

Unamused
Unamused
Unamused
Unamused

Save your voice
You ain't telling me nothing
You only speak
So that you could say something

The same old things
That come outta your head
You make me feel
Like I'm better off dead

Unamused by the words and the things that you say
'Cause I don't really care bout the games that you play

Unamused by the words and the things that you say
Unamused
'Cause I don't really care bout the games that you play
Unamused
Track Name: Urban Warfare
Pick up your weapons and report to the front lines
The time has come for action, so heed the battle cry
Foot soldiers marching, no defeat in their eyes
Hand to hand engaging as smoke fills the skies
Reporters telling us the end is near
I see it differently, this is no time for fear

You want to take us on
Come and place your bet
If it's war you want
Then it's war you'll get

Our flesh and blood battle on foreign lands
We pray that god would hold them safe in his hands
Different cultures united for a cause
No room for prejudice, our nation is at war

You want to take us on
Come and place your bet
If it's war you want
Then it's war you'll get
Track Name: Bigger Man
Things we do
I can't believe
Where we're at
How can it be?

Both of us
Refuse to change
We pay the price
Friendship strained

I try to be the bigger man, so I just walk away
I try to be the bigger man, so see me walk away
I try to be the bigger man, so I just walk away
I try to be the bigger man, so see me walk away

So much time
Has come and gone
And here we sing
The same old song

Little wounds
With spoken words
I'm through with this
It's so absurd

Here we are
Once again
Against the wall
When will it end?

Fooled me once
I'm still a fool
Cuz in this game
there is no rules
NO RULES

I try to be the bigger man, so I just walk away
I try to be the bigger man, so see me walk away
I try to be the bigger man, so I just walk away
I try to be the bigger man, so see me walk away

It always seems
There is no use
A waste of breath
To speak to you

It's really sad
You don't care
This song's for you
If you're unaware
Track Name: Alive in Me
I can't explain the way you penetrate my skin
I can't describe the way that you move me
Yes you move me
Just like a drug I feel you pulsing deep within
Your warming touch, I find it soothes me, yes it soothes me.

Alive
Alive in me
So alive
Alive in me

I've never felt this way before and won't again
It's written in the stars above me
Up above me
You're even more than I could have hoped and dreamed
Since the day you said you loved me
Yes you loved me

Alive
Alive in me
So alive
Alive in me

September night at the Black Rose
Where you found me
You said you knew I was the one.
Yeah the one
So put your hand in mine and lets walk amongst the stars
Higher than every single one
Every one

Alive
Alive in me
So alive
Alive in me
Track Name: Save Me
At 6pm it all will end
So say goodbye to all your friends
The time will come and I will leave
Is it so crazy to believe?

Save Me
Save Me
Save Me
Save Me

I see the signs on every road
The chosen ones they all will go
Am I a fool if I believe?
If left behind then what's for me?

Save Me
Save Me
Save Me
Save Me

So now the time has come my friends
Let's toast unto the very end
It's after 6, he must be late
As usual it's just a fake
Track Name: Built to Survive
I know what it means to take a beating
I know what it feels like with your face in the dirt
I live how it is
The scars and the scrapes
My knees might buckle but I ain't giving in

The weight of a 1,000 bricks upon on my chest
There are no chains to bind me
Onward I press

Built
Built to survive
Go, go!
Built
Built to survive
Go, go!

Try to hold me back, its all in vain
Nothing you can throw at me can ever match my pain
School's now in session
Perseverance 101
You think I'm new at this and this far I've come?
You can strike me down but you can't take my pride
I was made for this
Built to survive

Built
Built to survive
Go, go!
Built
Built to survive
Go, go!
Track Name: Sick is the New Sane
This world is changing
And it doesn't bother me
So open up your eyes
'Cause it's not hard to see

I always thought I was
the one that was alone
But now I see there's many more
that call this same place home

I find it funny how
it all just seems to change
So welcome to my world
Where sick is the new sane

Sick is the new sane
Sick is the new sane
Sick is the new sane

Desensitized is what
They say that we've become
There is nothing left to
Make you scared and wanna run

I used to see the world
Through eyes of a child
But now since time has passed
My sight is reconciled

Cast no aspersions
For the truth it shall remain
So welcome to my world
Where sick is the new sane

Sick is the new sane
Sick is the new sane
Sick is the new sane

Desensitized, desensitized
Desensitized, desensitized

Do not fear the things
That you can't comprehend
Much like all beginnings
There must be an end

It is what it is
So take it all in stride
So pull up a seat
And just enjoy the ride

Sick is the new sane
Sick is the new sane
Sick is the new sane
Track Name: Stomp You Out
I've had all I can take
Anymore and I can break
Heed these words that I send
There's no more I can bend

Always pushed into place
Never speak to my face
Behind my back run your mouth
Pay back time, Stomp you out

Stomp you out

Stomp you
Stomp you
Stomp you
Stomp you

It has been long enough
Now I must shut you up
I am sick of your games
I can't stand to hear your name

Think you're cool with all your friends
Forget just where you've been
Show you what I'm about
Payback time, Stomp you out

Stomp you
Stomp you
Stomp you
Stomp you

Stomp you out
Track Name: Blow It All Away
I've got a gun against my head
and my fingers on the trigger
And I'm wondering if I should just
Blow it all away

Tell me
Does anybody feel the same as me
Come on and tell me
Tell me I'm not alone... alone... alone

Tell me
Has anybody else been here before?
Come on and tell me
Sometimes you don't think you'll make it through - yes it's true

I've got a gun against my head
and my fingers on the trigger
And I'm wondering if I should just
Blow it all away

Tell me
At times it's hard to see the light
Come on and tell me
You still give it all you got anyway...

Tell me
At times you wonder why it's got to be
Come on and tell me
Sometimes you don't even really care

I've got a gun against my head
and my fingers on the trigger
And I'm wondering if I should just
Blow it all away

Tell me
Do you wonder if they'll even know your gone?
Come on and tell me
Do you wanna live to fight another day?

Tell me
Have you ever asked yourself these things at night?
Come on and tell me
Have you looked in the mirror and felt the same?
Track Name: Disdain
Sometimes the things I feel
Seem to fester deep
Within my soul
I can't stop the reaction that I feel
At times I really think
I'm gonna lose control

Oh God
Why
Must I
Be afflicted with this pain?
Insane
DISDAIN
Still burning deep within

Something inside
Tears me up
Never seems to
Fill my cup

Searching for
A guiding voice
At the crossroads
What's my choice?

Glowing embers
Deep within
Burning hotter
Under skin

Feelings that
I try to hide
Underneath
And intertwined

Wonder why
I wish to hate
Served it up
Now eat my plate

Mirror image
Never lies
Own reflection
No disguise

God
Why
Must I
Be afflicted with this pain?
Insane...
DISDAIN...
Still burning deep within

Questions burning
At the core
Wondering
If there is more

Crushing weight
Upon the chest
Is it ever
Laid to rest?

Self inflicted
Genocide
Healing wound
Is open wide

Motivate
With bad intent
Part of me
I do resent

Feelings that
I try to hide
Underneath
And intertwined

Mirror image
Never lies
Own reflection
No disguise

Try to be
A better man
Face the facts
It's what I am

Humanity
Imprinted stain
Leaves me burning
With DISDAIN
Track Name: We're All Suspect
So Just take a look around
and you'll see what I'm saying
All these people
And the games that they're playing

Everybody's worried 'bout everybody else
Instead of looking inward or worrying 'bout themselves
Sometimes it hurts when you look and you see
That there's a bit of everybody else in me

Can you feel it?
Can you place it?
Can you sense it?
You and me
We're all suspect

Can you feel it?
Can you place it?
Can you sense it?
You and me
We're all suspect

So were all guilty
Although we try to hide it
Built into the mainframe
Though we try to fight it

Sometimes it hurts
when you look and you see
that there's a bit
of everybody else in me

Can you feel it?
Can you place it?
Can you sense it?
You and me
We're all suspect

Can you feel it?
Can you place it?
Can you sense it?
You and me
We're all suspect

Sometimes it hurts
when you look and you see
that there's a bit
of everybody else in me

Can you feel it?
Can you place it?
Can you sense it?
You and me
We're all suspect

Can you feel it?
Can you place it?
Can you sense it?
You and me
We're all suspect

Can you feel it?
Can you place it?
Can you sense it?
You and me
We're all suspect

Can you feel it?
Can you place it?
Can you sense it?
You and me
We're all suspect
Track Name: Eraser
My blood boils deep within
After all you've put me through
Took the shirt right off my back
Gave you money, gave you food

I am sick with who you are
You disgust me with your ways
Yes our paths will cross again
And my fist will meet your face

Is this a joke to you?
So now you think you're cool?
Your lips move but I cant hear what you say to me!

Tell me how you sleep at night
How you lay your head to rest
The impact of your venom tongue
Is like a bullet to the chest

The wreckage of the actions made
In plain sight for all to see
No regret, no consequence
The parasite in you must feed

Is this a joke to you?
So now you think you're cool?
Your lips move but I cant hear what you say to me!

Can't believe that I could be so blind
With the writing on the wall
After all the things I've done for you
You've left me to take the fall!

So If you could only know
Of the hell you put me through
Now I see why all your friends
And family turned backs on you

So now are you better off?
In the gutter once again
I erase you from my mind
Like you never were my friend

Is this a joke to you?
This time it's really through
Say what you want
'Cuz it don't mean a thing to me
Track Name: Something About You (feat. Dug Pinnick)
Like the air I breathe
Or a glass of wine
On a winter's night
You'll see

It could be divine
On a beach beneath
The clear blue sky

Do you feel for me
As I feel for you
Or is this all a dream?

Occupy my mind
Yeah I know we'll stand
The test of time

There's something about you
And the way that you
Look me straight in the eye

Don't know how to explain
But your touch seems to
Make me feel so alive

You're my everything
You're my first, my last
And all that lies between
Bring a touch of peace
To my world so cold
And so afraid

Never felt so free
Never thought something
This good could ever be
Come and fly with me
You and I so high
For eternity

There's something about you
And the way that you
Look me straight in the eye

Don't know how to explain
But your touch seems to
Make me feel so alive
