Track Name: Obsequies
the age old voices of long dead men
are abused by your holy to distort a young boy's head
a fallible leader, who's words reign supreme
are just exerting controls millions refuse to see
crucify the dreams in everyone's head
your the scum thats brainwashed satan
speak your lies, you deserve to die
as your false white god burns in his lies

accept his truth without question
you speak slander heres intervention
accept his truth without question
you speak slander heres intervention

walk up to the alter so you shall receive
the body and blood of your saviour he
will cut up your nuns store em on the shelves
bring you good life, bring you good health
eat the flesh and blood, drink it down
your swallowing it all without any doubt
feel the light, is it saving you know?
as your cold lifeless bodies burning in hell

accept his truth without question
you speak slander heres intervention
accept his truth without question
you speak slander heres intervention
Track Name: Dead End
theres a voice inside my head telling me i should be dead
so why the hell should i go on, in this life i never want
to be alive, whats it mean, just a blur, shitty dream
all i seek is peace of mind but this world it isn't kind
so i'm through listening the time for talk is done
the most important decision of my life is by the rope or by the gun
but i find it doesn't matter either way
i'll be dead by the end of the day

the greatest lie that's ever told is ever will be alright
there's no way to know just sit and drink, try to make it through the night
i felt myself left alone time and time again
theres still no way i see it, for me its a dead end

i think therefore i am how easily it may have seem
i guess im tired of living so i guess im tired of being
shrug it off and act ok and seem that all is well
kiss my ass decarte, i hope you rot in hell

the greatest lie that's ever told is ever will be alright
there's no way to know just sit and drink, try to make it through the night
i felt myself left alone time and time again
theres still no way i see it, for me its a dead end

now it's all been said it's time to go
i know deep down i want to say no
it's far too late to turn back now
you say i can change i don't know how
and all that's left is to take one step
let gravity and the rope snap my neck
maybe we will meet on the other side
i can't be say i'll be proud of how i died

the greatest lie that's ever told is ever will be alright
there's no way to know just sit and drink, try to make it through the night
i felt myself left alone time and time again
theres still no way i see it, for me its a dead end
Track Name: Stuck In The Crack
i wish you'd come home
but the truth is i'd rather be alone
no one to answer to
no phone with a dial tone
can't you see, you're breaking our home

thanks for the cash
smoke your blast
see you in week
and fuck your tweaker act
it's sad to see you dealer pays me in cash
rocks don't feed families
your pipe don't support me
the worst thing is your lies put me to sleep

can't you see
that colman st. is killing me
i'm out all night stuck on the streets
as you stay in your crack rock dream
no food in the pantry
ratty shoes upon my feet
we live in poverty
rocks feed you, not me

thanks for the cash
smoke your blast
see you in a week and fuck your tweaker act
you weak minded fool, caught up in your spool
it's sad to see you can't see reality
rocks don't feed families
your pipe don't support me
the worst thing is your lies put me to sleep

rocks don't mean nothin' when i'm fucking starving
your pipe won't fix my broken hand
the worst thing is that you fucked up
and still your habits haven't let up
i tried to save you but the problem is your stuck in the crack
Track Name: Vivace
doctor she's dyin'
it's ok she's been lyin'
her shrill shriek could wake the dead
for god's sake put salt on the wound
and drain the blood from her head

come take this trip with me
drive down this lonely street
and you'll finally be set free
you'll see what i mean
your secrets safe with me
i set your soul free
it just has to be
your secrets safe with me

the wheels control
i'm letting go
now i'm in control
she's got to go

i see your face behind the cold shadow of a veil
if i crash this car right now will you be able to tell
i set your soul free
it's eating up at me
i see your dead eyes
on the pavement of the street

the wheels control
i'm letting go
now i'm in control
she's got to go

the wheels control
i'm letting go
now i'm in control
she's got to go
Track Name: Rude Awakening
as these four walls come crashing down
i won't be there i'm destroying the town
hard to say but i can't help
and i'd still let you drown
make the world crack in half
i'll sit back and laugh
i will make blackouts occur
you won't see the light of day, rest assured

i've waited time and time again
choosing demons and they still remain my only friends
walk down this path in my shoes for the change
living in darkness playing your measly life and my selfish game
i swear i've seen would make all you normals go insane
walk through hell, you'll see my face

shall i set fires to burn
for one day you all will learn
creation comes with greed at high price
when you've created demons dressed as knights

i've waited time and time again
choosing demons and they still remain my only friends
walk down this path in my shoes for the change
living in darkness playing your measly life and my selfish game
i swear i've seen would make all you normals go insane
walk through hell, you'll see my face

walk through hell
you'll see my face
and in the end
we will all be buried in the same place
Track Name: Breathing Room
i think i've had enough i can't do this much longer
the mob wears me thin, people to me are such a bother
they make me feel on edge, there words and actions terror me
god damnit all i really need is some space to breathe

i'm barely hangin' on by a single thread
why the fuck can't i get what i need

i need some breathing room
breathing room
breathing room

so piss off cause i'm running out of patience
i'm burning up inside
all i wants some freedom why the fuck is that a crime
i'm feeling smothered why can't the world just let me be
i never wanted to be part of this society
my head just might split and me head just might shatter
watching people climb up this social ladder
stand out from the crowd, i won't be part of it at all
especially when they've got my back against the wall

i'm barely hangin' on by a single thread
why the fuck can't i get what i need

i need some breathing room
breathing room
breathing room
Track Name: Protagonist of Many Sad Stories Pt. 1
i walk down this lonely street with blisters on my feet
but i don't mind, my mind is half asleep
with slow death, pressed between my lips
but i could give a shit, i feel so unfit, in this sad world

i am completely self-abused, for lack of a better use
i know i don't fit in so i might as well just get out
but believe me i've tried, several several times
if there really is a god, why am i kept from moving on

but why am i kept here trapped in fear
far from tears, the veils not near
yet everything i see is so unclear
Track Name: Let Down
i seem to be going down a road i've been on before
trust is lost, it's gone right out the door
i should of known better, should of known better than to believe in you
i would of done better, i would of done better if i only knew
i get built up, i get built up just to be, be let down

i've been left out
put six feet in the ground
i've lost all faith in the human race
there's no one i can trust but myself

now it's someone new, telling me to rely on them
it's funny just cause that's what they all say
you can call me jaded, you can call me a cynic
but this is what i've seen
place your trust in no one
all i can trust in is me
i get built up, i get built up just to be, be let down

i've been left out
put six feet in the ground
i've lost all faith in the human race
there's no one i can trust but myself

i get built up
i get built up
i get built up
i get built just to be, be let down

i've been left out
put six feet in the ground
i've lost all faith in the human race
there's no one i can trust but myself
Track Name: Not All There
playing in the backyard of the streets of LA
as we put on a show
50 cent shots and the nitrous was filled
we were ready to go
we drank it all down and we took it all in
we were getting restless
theres nothing quite like this experience
we live for this

we're all here because we're not all there
our release is what gets us through the weeks and through the years
we're all here because we're not all there
and nothing compares

cease to assist, the van smells like piss
when i leave home, will i be missed?
constantly fighting, add all your diss
my hands are clenched into a fist
slinging aimlessly for sure not to miss
falling out, do you feel death's kiss?
the waters not cold so don't throw a fit
the time is near come swim with the fish

we're all here because we're not all there
our release is what gets us through the weeks and through the years
we're all here because we're not all there
and nothing compares

and then it gets louder and then it gets faster
you feel your potential on the edge of disaster
finally too loud, can't get much faster
you feel your potential, come crashing down

a deep breathe so i can steady my gaze
a deep sigh as it all melts away
lost in this trance like i've been here for days
where am i now i feel i've lost my way

(i don't feel anything anymore)
i'm numb straight to the core
(i don't feel anything anymore)
my life is such a bore
(i don't feel anything anymore)
i'm used to the same old whore
my mind and body are at a constant war

we're all here because we're not all there
our release is what gets us through the weeks and through the years
we're all here because we're not all there
and nothing compares
and nothing compares
we're all here because we're not all there
Track Name: E.S.A.D.
die die die eat shit and die
i can't listen to a thing you say
die die die eat shit and die
you're a waste of life anyway

he fights when he's drug which makes it ok
she gets her free drinks when she looks a certain way
you walk like an asshole you talk like an asshole
your future will be full of abuse

die die die eat shit and die
i can't listen to a thing you say
die die die eat shit and die
you're a waste of life anyway

you waste all your money on fucking pointless things
you waste all your time telling us where you've just been
your mindset is worthless your mindset is worthless
but your too busy being a tool

die die die eat shit and die
i can't listen to a thing you say
die die die eat shit and die
you're a waste of life anyway

you only live once is a social disaster
why isn't death finding you faster
well i've got your crown your empire will fall
we'll finally be rid of them all

die die die eat shit and die
i can't listen to a thing you say
die die die eat shit and die
you'r a waste of life anyway

i'd rather pull my nails out one at a time
i'd rather stick hot pokers in my eyes
torture sounds better, torture sounds better
than having to put up with you
Track Name: On The Outs
sleeping on the cold dark ledge
i'd rather shank my celly while he's laying cozy on his bed
and as they dragged me down the hall
i grabbed guards keys, i dare not miss my call
standing on this roof, i threw me off for this ever deserving fall
and with my broken ankle stumbling away i finally made it to the outs today

finally set free fuck the system
the outs are for me
finally set free fuck the system
the outs are for me

look who i've become, creeping in the shadows
plotting my revenge, i swear if i get caught it's off to the pen
finished what i started, what i set out to do
this time it's more than a knife piercing through

finally set free fuck the system
the outs are for me
finally set free fuck the system
the outs are for the free

i'm in the holding cell
probably won't make bail
i'm sick of all these pigs and their fucking tall tales
and if i make it to the outs, to the outs today
i'll be laughing as your life's floating away
Track Name: What For?
I'm gathering up all you pigs cause you seem to be cut loose
and the rope is set tight when your neck is in the noose
then i'm gonna hang you up from fifty stories high
so everyone can watch the life drain out your helpless eyes
I'm gathering up all you pigs cause you seem to be cut loose
and the rope is set tight when your neck is in the noose
then i'm gonna hang you up from fifty stories high
so everyone can watch the life drain out your helpless eyes

the story is out the news is tellin' lies
rather lose all doubt than kill and terrorize
we've seen this all before, it's happening once more
we ask what for, we ask what for

I'm gathering up all you pigs cause you seem to be cut loose
and the rope is set tight when your neck is in the noose
then i'm gonna hang you up from fifty stories high
so everyone can watch the life drain out your helpless eyes

so here we are, face to face
i've done nothin' wrong yet you threaten to taze me
unless i get down and place my hands on my head
but i know if i do, i'm as good as dead

you said i have rights, and yet they're refused
take one off for us and another for you
you said i have rights, and yet they're refused
take one off for us and another for you

he chased me through this alley
following his precious merchandise
that's when i threw the pig in for a deep surprise
i pulled out my knife, shimmered in the night sky
thats when i stabbed him numerously in the chest and side
in the cold glare of his friends stared back at me
they could tell i was serious and the blood ran to his feet
and he soon figured out that this wasn't for pretend
as i took the knife and plunged it straight into him

i knelt down and grabbed his badge and held it proud and high
so everyone could see that i had claimed my prize
i knelt down and grabbed his badge and held it proud and high
so everyone could see that i had claimed my prize

riot
Track Name: Protagonist of Many Sad Stories Pt. 2
i walked that street now i stare at the ceiling
an hours a minute and a days a week
and these faces, they're all the same
blind looking, zero listening, and i'm to blame?
nothing ever matters cause what matters has been shattered
i could jump out the window, step in front of the subway, i could take a bullet for personal gain

lifeless and homeless and left alone
like a rotting carcass left in a hole
the same old premise, i never had control
that changes tonight, so i finally write the last chapter to my life

i was in shackles before i even got out
i was kicked while i was still on the ground
still got the taste of blood in my mouth
the truth hurts but thats how i found out
nothing ever matters cause what matters has been shattered
thanks sad world for the little you taught
not enough to stick around but enough to keep me running

lifeless and homeless and left alone
like a rotting carcass left in a hole
the same old premise, i never had control
that changes tonight, so i finally write the last chapter to my life

if i ever had a chance to rewrite my past, i'd be stuck in my tracks
i never had a chance
