Stephen H Dobson So it's been a few years now since the release of Urban Warfare. I can honestly say I'm plucked now as much as ever listening to this album. I count down the days and sleepless nights awaiting the release of Klank's new album RISE. For two decades now have we been awestruck by the raw ferocious sounds that emit from this EPIC band known as KLANK! Godspeed to each of you... Favorite track: Bigger Man.

christopher neisen aggressive and artistic all at the same time. A rare find indeed. I've always been a fan of Klank but this album is completely worthy of the hype it was given before it's release. Favorite track: Sick is the New Sane.

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!!!

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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

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

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?

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

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

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

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

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
