"Our Ethos: A Legacy to Pass On" as written by and Audelio Flores Michael Ambrose....
I cannot cope with all this hope gushing like blood
I cannot get my stomach to understand
We can't bring these taken lives back

Explicit truth is blunt
It is uncensored It is aware
My sadness evolves into hate
I want to know why no one told me

Cowards are hiding using systems that are failing

Tell me what I can do to stop this
Injections of miscarried justice
Make us aware

And who are we anyway to empower ourselves
To however take all others live down
The problem is it's one thing to control, another thing to expel
We falsely convict by misleading the witness,
even proven deaths of many innocent
In the name of what God should we ever be allowed?

Cowards are hiding using systems that are failing
Answers are getting buried as powers keep abusing
(Resolution seems so possible Integrate a compassion into control)

Tell me what I can do to stop this
Injections of miscarried justice
The method's flawed and I feel hopeless
Hurting to raise my state of conscience

It's been concealed for ten years and ten before for centuries
Concealed from forthsights and knowledge bases of our communities
(So what are we gonna do now? So what are we gonna do now?)
So what are we gonna do now to change this?

Make us aware, aware, aware
Make us aware, aware, aware
I want to heal the haunt
I want to know how to stop
I want to make a difference
Don't want to feel useless
Decipher out the true crime
Everyone mis-steps sometimes
Remember there is always
Another side to what we know

No more anguish
No more torture
No more suffer
Call for restructure
No more anguish (No more anguish)
No more torture (No more torture)
No more suffer (No more suffer)
Call for restructure (Call for)

The method's flawed but I am not useless, no
I'm singing to raise higher awareness (Make us aware)
Tell me what I can do to stop this (Make us aware)
Injections of miscarried justice
The method's flawed and I feel hopeless
(Concentrate the efforts made)
Hurting to raise my state of conscience
(Admit the fault and help reshape)
Tell me what I can do to stop this

    General CommentBecause when there's no one there to hear you the music will listen, and when there's no one there to tell the words will write themselves. So you say that this is trapping me, and yeah, maybe I agree. But there are ways in which I'm free that you will never be.




    love.

    General CommentMatt: "Ethos - Noun sociology. The fundamental character or spirit of a culture: The underlying sentiment that informs the beliefs, customs, or practices of a group or society; dominant assumptions of a people or period. A thank you to Chad Gilbert for his vocal duties in this song, and contributing souls that make up the spirit of this musical entity. This song is a statement encompassing our way of life and the future that is holds for us. Don't let it go..."
