    Lyrics:
    “Knock Us Down”
    ℗ © The Sweetest Condition 2016
    (Music: Jason Reed Milner/Lyrics: Leslie Irene Benson)

    We’ve always lived inside the lines—
    Right wing, Left hook — clouding our minds,
    Holding us back, but not this time.

    We were raised
    on confusion,
    products of misinformation.
    Never got our
    story straight.
    This time—
    it’s too late.

    We’re drowning in our
    discontent.
    I don’t trust the
    government.
    It’s a conspiracy.
    You only know
    what they want you to see!

    Knock us down,
    but we’re still standing!
    Knock us down,
    but we’re still standing!

    You don’t control us with your fear.
    We won’t submit and disappear.

    We were raised on
    promises.
    So I picket the whitewash
    fences.

    Nothing’s ever
    as it seems.
    I don’t want
    the American Dream.

    You surrender
    all you are—
    only living
    from afar.

    But I’ll make
    my own way.
    Forget tomorrow.
    Live for today!

    Knock us down,
    but we’re still standing!
    Knock us down,
    but we’re still standing!

    We were raised on
    promises.
    So I picket the whitewash
    fences.

    Nothing’s ever
    as it seems.
    I don’t want
    the American Dream.

    You surrender
    all you are—
    only living
    from afar.

    But I’ll make
    my own way.
    Forget tomorrow.
    Live for today!

    Knock us down,
    but we’re still standing!
    Knock us down,
    but we’re still standing!

    Lyrics:
    “Watch You Fall”
    ℗ © The Sweetest Condition 2015
    (Music: Jason Reed Milner/Lyrics: Leslie Irene Benson)

    Through all your promises
    your broken promises,
    I’ve waited long enough.
    You can’t reach me.

    Through all your promises,
    your broken promises,
    now there’s nothing left
    you can teach me.

    Hold tight
    to me
    I’d hate to see you slipping...
    see your pride ripping

    I see through your lies,
    your dirty alibis.
    Not at your beck and call.
    Can’t wait to watch you fall.
    Watch you fall.

    I can’t wait to watch you
    fall.
    Watch you fall.
    Watch you fall.
    I can’t wait to watch you...
    Can’t wait to watch you
    Can’t wait to watch you.

    Through all your push and pull,
    silly parlor games,
    finally found the boy
    behind the mystery man.

    All your push and pull,
    times you never changed,
    it’s time to drop the mask,
    live up to your name.

    Hold tight
    to me.
    I’d hate to see you slipping...
    see your pride.

    I see through your lies,
    your dirty alibis.
    Not at your beck and call.
    Can’t wait to watch you fall.
    Watch you fall.

    I can’t wait to watch you
    fall.
    Watch you fall.
    Watch you fall.
    I can’t wait to watch you...
    Can’t wait to watch you.
    Can’t wait to watch you.

    Lyrics:
    “NOW” ℗ © 2015 The Sweetest Condition
    Lyrics by Leslie I. Benson

    Whispers from the hall.
    I can hear them calling,
    trading their white lies
    in exchange for mine.

    Thought I found the truth
    inside every bottle,
    ‘til I saw the worm
    hiding at the bottom.

    They say the only way out is through.
    I’m so confused.
    I can’t fall apart NOW!

    Why stay in the cage?
    Why carry the burden
    weighing on my mind,
    if I am the warden?

    They try to pull me into their game.
    I’m not falling for it!
    I think I might be losing my mind;
    Look who’s laughing NOW!

    They say the only way out is through.
    only if it’s through you.
    I’ll walk right through you!

    I found a way out of this place,
    and I’m taking it!
    I found a way out of this town, and
    I’m leaving you NOW!

    I can’t fall apart now.
