"You've Made Us Conscious" as written by Seth James Johnson, Joseph Matthew Lussa, Ryan O'connor and Daniel James Stevens....
We are the leaders and the preachers
Teaching you what is right from wrong.
And even if a hint of nonsense has made us clearly conscious,
We'll be the first ones to act, be the first ones to act in.

Tick-tock on the clock and a knock at the

Oh oh oh, look at what we've all tried not to become:
Another fabricated self-portrait.
Oh oh no, take another glance and remember we're the ones
Setting you up to take our fall.

You are the so-called weak and reckless.
Waiting for the next big explosion,
No matter if it's wrong or right.
If we let you have this,
You'll be the first to destroy, be the first to destroy it.

Tick-tock on the clock and a knock at the

Oh oh oh, look at what we've all tried not to become:
Another fabricated self-portrait.
Oh oh no, take another glance and remember we're the ones
Setting you up to take our fall.

The simple ways we roll our eyes
Are exactly how we disguise our secrets.
You know you need this.

The simple ways we roll our eyes
Are exactly how we disguise our secrets.
You know you need this.

Tick-tock on the clock and a knock at the
Tick-tock on the clock and a knock at the

Oh oh oh, look at what we've all tried not to become:
Another fabricated self-portrait.
Oh oh no, take another glance and remember we're the ones
Setting you up to take our fall.

    General CommentThis is a good song, not as good as their demo version off the Victory Records sampler, but none the less, still good. This song seems to be about people wearing out the scene. The band's not trying to become "another fabricated self-portrait" The video explains a lot too, its people basicly going in and out of a factory like zombie children just listening to whatever corprate america hands to them. Good stuff right there.

    General CommentI'm glad not many people know about this band, because the whole message in this song would get misinterpreted by those who are in fact 'waiting for the next biggest explosion'. The scene kids.

    I might try and really get into them, because it sums up my anger against those who take great bands and turn them into trends that become so popular they get hated.

    General CommentI think when people sell out sometimes its ok cause they deserve the money and stuff its just when they change who they are to fit a profile or something its not ok then. like mcr they're so different and i kinda hate them now but the used didn't change who they are...anyway this song is awesome

    General CommentI also found out about this song off of the victory records sampler. kinda like the special suprize inside a cereal box. i find it ironic that victory records puts out a campaign about "beating coorprate rock" when hawthorne heights is a coorperate sell out, and atreyu has a large fan base. and then victory comes out with a commerical sponcering them. tho i'm a hypocrate cause i bought the hawthorne hieghts cd four moths ago.
