Track Name: A Cleansing Fire
A CLEANSING FIRE

Kill all that lives and smother all that breathes

anything to meet your needs

We all go down with the ship

you’d sink us all for your greed

Man to this world a disease, burn everything to feed your gluttony

once more than we’d ever need, what’s left is barely enough to survive

A cleansing fire to protect

life

I’d leave it ruins

wipe out mankind

Raping-every resource, paving the world ,you’d suffocate the earth

reaping-fear no consequence, you’d tear it all out

you’d suffocate and end all life

When the concrete crumbles a forest will grow in its place

once man is extinct life can thrive
Track Name: Anywhere but Here
ANYWHERE BUT HERE

I can’t Let go-this world comes down on me

continually crushing my hopes and my dreams

They say that when you pass-you find a better place

there has to be something that’s better than this

Not one second counts-it’s all just wasted time

I gouge out my eyes to be blind of this world

and I’d tear out my veins in the hopes of a far better place

I wanna be anywhere but here

and the last thing in this life that I wanna see

is my name on the side of a bullet named peace

Not one second counts-it’s all just wasted breath

To be blind of this world I’d gouge out my eyes

I’d rip out my veins in the hope a far better place

I wanna be anywhere but here

and the last thing is life that I want to see

is my name on the side of a bullet named peace

They say that when you pass-you find a better place

There has to be something that’s better than this
Track Name: Eternal Recurrence
ETERNAL RECURRENCE

These walls that you hate have become your prison

they mock you with silence-no matter how loud you scream

There’s never sleep-anxiety controls you

things that you’ve seen-haunt your daily life

You’ve found yourself here before- never quite this desperate

You’ll find yourself here again –the cycle keeps repeating

Try to disassociate what you want from what you know

try to close your eyes-when they open it’s still your life

Watching it collapse- it brings satisfaction

no hope for a change-this is your life

You’ve found yourself here before-never quite this desperate

You’ll find yourself here again –the cycle keeps repeating

Its insane-nothing changes not the places or faces

get slightly rearranged but otherwise stay the same

Commit crime on the highest level -cliché white devils

while you’re standing in line to buy food with your last dime

It’s a crime –always struggling always grasping for something

they take everything -still end up with nothing

You feel insane-nothing changes all the faces and places

you’ve seen thousands of times but slowly can’t recognize

Feel you’ll suffocate-you see no escape-the door leading out seems terrifying

The walls that you hate become your prison

You’d take your life to reclaim your life

-reclaim your life
Track Name: Crisis
CRISIS

What are you gonna have left to fight for-when all the causes have been lost

Are you gonna accept your station-just chalk it all up as a loss

Give me something I can stand for-stand till my legs turn to dust

In this modern dark age we exist in shadows-avoid the light burning our eyes

What about this modern world is really different from the old?

How is this a modern at all?

Refuse to accept, and violently reject the sentence you’ve past

The life that you’ve planned out for me

When there’s nothing left to stand on-when all your beliefs are gone

Give me something to believe in-I’ll believe till all the buildings are rust

In this modern dark age we exist in shadows- avoid the light burning our eyes

What about our modern world is really different from the old?

How is this a modern at all?

Refuse to accept and violently I reject the sentence you’ve past

and this life that you’ve planned out for me
Track Name: In Shadows
IN SHADOWS

We’re all born with a light in our eyes -with a chance to make something of our life

but the more of this world that we see -that light it fades from our eyes so quickly

When we become aware we learn doubt-with that awareness that light it burns out

and in this darkness we can see more clearly-there's no path to follow-there’s no

relief

Suffering leads to contempt when it’s in our daily life

when we fail everything that we try

Through our youths that we barely survive

told that hardships will help shape our lives

so we hold onto an impossible dream-hoping to somehow shape our destinies

Now that this violence is all that we know-now that this anger is all we have left

with no path laid out ahead of you-lost in a world that never wanted you

Suffering leads to contempt when its in our daily lives

when we fail everything that we try

We’re all born with a light in our eyes-born to a world that we cannot survive

when we accept that there is no way out-with that awareness that light it burns out

Now that this violence is all that we know-now that this anger is all we have left

with no path laid out ahead of you-lost in a world that never wanted you

Suffering leads to contempt when it’s in our daily lives

when we fail everything that we try

It’s your daily life
Track Name: Cut the Veins
CUT THE VEINS

A king doesn’t care if a peasant burns his home

Police don’t care if we burn our own neighborhoods

Life broken down to monetary weight

Your worth in gold is far less than you think

Ch: the only way to, make their system bleed

Cut the veins that flow with currency

The only way to dethrone a king

To storm the castle, burn down the throne

Fight amongst ourselves over scraps from their table

Losing a class war & freedoms the cost

Scales of justice long broken and perverted

Our lives hold no value, they write off the loss

Fight for scraps from the table

Freedom’s the cost

Not losing a class war-they lost
Track Name: Trigger
TRIGGER

I realize all the choices that I’ve made they were mine

And the consequences of my actions I recognize

I should’ve had a better shot at my life

Misanthropic mind, my self destructive revenge

Violent response, suicidal means to an end

I should’ve had better shot at my life

Ch: Buried all the rage and anger deep inside, but they’ll always be a trigger

Short fuse ,time bomb, hand grenade with a hairline trigger

No escape from this wrecking ball that is my life

The anger fades but there’ll always be a trigger

Not a victim- not of circumstance –not of chance

You see me as disgrace –I see what I am

I should’ve had a decent chance at my life

You condescension brings anger sharper than knives

You should’ve let me be I’d have suffered in silence

I should’ve had a better shot at my life

Ch: Buried all the rage and anger deep inside, but they’ll always be a trigger

Short fuse ,time bomb, hand grenade with a hairline trigger

No escape from this wrecking ball that is my life

The anger fades but but reforms if you pull the right


Not a victim of circumstance or of chance

You see me as a disgrace and I know that’s what I am

You should’ve let me be I’d have suffered in silence

Should’ve let me drown in my own silence
Track Name: Slowly Dying
SLOWLY DYING

Come in the world with a boot on our necks-were struggling for scraps of respect

Realize that there is no point in trying- we see we are all just slowly dying

Life’s slowly fading-were turning to dust-we know there’s nothing left for us

Life’s fading quickly-we’re all in a rush to find our place down in the dust

Don’t wanna fix the problems –don’t wanna try at all

Content to sit back and watch it all fall

Don’t wanna fix the problems –don’t wanna try at all

Content to watch it collapse

You always remember the misinformation-you always forget that it’s false

Always ready to go stand and accuse but never been ready to fall

Don’t wanna fix the problems –don’t wanna try at all

Content to sit back and watch it all fall

Don’t wanna fix the problem–don’t wanna try at all

Content to watch it collapse

Frustration would bring me to tears if I wasn’t to jaded to feel

Too jaded and angry to see that the problem is probably me

Frustration it festers for years till I become too bitter to care

Too jaded too angry to see that problem is probably me

Come in this world with a boot on our necks-were struggling for scraps of respect

realize that there is no more point in trying-we’re all just slowly dying
Track Name: Oblivion
OBLIVION

This is an insurrection

this is insubordination

there’s no justice that I can see

there’s one solution that I can see

Lies pile up like the money they steal, like bodies that lie in the street

keep us divided to make us believe our differences are to blame

Now that you’re backed against that wall, what are you gonna do now

How are you gonna justify all those that die

Bodies pile up as it’s shown on the screen-somehow no one’s committed a crime

police exist to please the rich, keep the rest of us right in line

now that you know that we see you, what are you gonna do now

how are you gonna try to justify –all those that died

This is a final solution –this is my only escape

you’ll find no way to get away-you’ll find no guiding light

cuz’ this is the only solution-the only way that I can see

there’s no way back here for me –this is my final goodbye

Device strapped tight-dead man’s insurance

bright lights flash– path through the shadows

there is no chance in hell for me

this is justice from which you cannot hide

This is justice in the hands of the worthless

payback from which you cannot hide

bright lights flash ,crash into the darkness

Deadmans path into the light
