"Achilles-The Backbreaker" as written by David Edison Bunton, Andrew Joseph Barrette, Joshua Michael Childers and Eric Allan Koruschak....
We are too old to cry, too young to die
Bound to the promise of better lives
We're bought and sold content to know
That we'll never have to
Fight if we do what we're told
We are warrior sons but we run from a cause
That brings freedom and purpose and hope to us all
We would rather be a product of the world and its whims
Than have the world be a product of the force of our wills

Rise
And at the sound of our standing the earth will groan
Rise
And we will break their backs

And we will stretch for days and miles and years
Pulled across the fabric of our hopes and fears
We'll pay the price, the sacrifice
Rebels and angels a storm of white light
Earth shakers, life takers, passion and purpose make men of us all
The slow rotting, the cancerous fear, the corruption we put a stop to it here

Brothers in arms to me
Rise
And at the sound of our standing the earth will groan
Rise
And we will break their backs with the weight of our will

Give us insurrection
Give us something to say
Give us thirst for vengeance
And we will break their backs with the weight of our will
