"Arlington Arms" as written by and Hugo Lira Negin....
I watch the walls fall down on Suburbia.
Land of the free, home of the self-enslaved.
On you.
I watched them bleed, I watched them fall to their face.
I watched them scream as they pray for a taste.
Of you. (Watching the walls fall down)

But I won’t fall on the knife that killed the American dream.

So let us grieve at the fall of Suburbia.
The dreams we’ve made are shoved in the face
Of you.
So get a taste of what was meant to be.
Fall in the waste of what was meant to be
For you. (Watching the walls fall down)

But I won’t fall on the knife that killed the American dream.

Watching the walls fall down.

I watch the walls fall down on Suburbia.
Land of the free, home of the self-enslaved.
On you.
I watched them bleed, I watched them fall to their face.
I watched them scream as they pray for a taste.
Of you. (Watching the walls fall down)

Watching the walls fall down.

    General CommentQuote from the lead singer about this song...

    "Arlington Arms is an apartment complex around where we live. My girlfriend suggested that that would be a cool name for a song. When she said that it prompted me to write a song about suburban america and how God is basically no part of the typical American Dream. And I wont be part of that. 'I wont fall on the knife that killed the American dream'."
