Track Name: You Make Yourself Look Like A Fool
You will never know. You will never know. Take a number and get in line. Follow blindly, because no one out there cares. We are just bodies to them and they are stealing our minds. You don’t know me. You don’t know what I have inside. You don’t know me and you never will.
Track Name: Occupy This
We are surrounded by false hopes and failed ideals that one day, one month, or one year, things would be alright. We are being robbed of our freedom. These lies and deceit must come to an end. For too many days I’ve walked these streets. For too many nights I’ve felt unsafe. How much time has to pass before a man can walk out his door without the feeling of defeat? We walk pass in silence. We clench our fists. We search on through our pockets. We hold onto our pride. We walk pass in silence. We clench our fists. We search on through our pockets. We hold onto our pride. How did we end up like this? How can we get away? How did we end up like this? How can we get away? Do one thing good. Do one thing right. Help us out of this hell that we call our life. Do one thing good. Do one thing right. Help us out of this hell that we call our life. There are too many people living on the streets with no food, no shelter, no jobs, and no self-respect. How much longer are we going to let this happen to ourselves before we are told, “It’s not our fault, and we didn’t do this to you?” Where did my money go that I gave to Uncle Sam? I’ve tightened my belt as you fill your coffers. Do one thing good. Do one thing right. Help us out of this hell that we call our life. Do one thing good. Do one thing right. Help us out of this hell that we call our life.
Track Name: The Last One
Open your eyes and open your mind. Take in all that you see and paint yourself a picture on this decomposing canvas. Our world is falling around us, and it’s your fault. You litter the streets with your filth; you ruin the lives of the innocent. Racing to your grave, you’re already dead and you say, “Come on, take a hit.” I say, “Fuck you, I’m not here to waste my life away!” Nothing that you say will ever change the way I feel. Nothing that you do will ever change how I see this world. Nothing that you say will ever change the way I feel. Nothing that you do will ever change my way of life. This is what’s right for me. This is what’s right for me. This is what’s right for me. This is what’s right for me. Straight Edge. I walk the streets with the stench of poison consuming the air, a lack of direction, and the disbelief that this is acceptable. I do my best to keep my mind clear while you stumble about with mind altering substances, the lack of knowledge, and the excess amount of ignorance. Mind altering substances, the lack of knowledge, and the excess amount of ignorance. March you on like sheep to the slaughter. Send yourself to an early grave and dig that shit yourself. I choose to keep my mind clear of all your useless impurities that fill the streets with disillusions that this world would be a better place. Open your eyes and open your mind, take in all that you see. Open your eyes and open your mind, take in all that you see. Open your eyes and open your mind, take in all that you see. Open your eyes and open your mind, take in all that you see.
Track Name: Leech
Where did self-satisfaction go? When did you begin to lose faith in all that you do? Troubled youth comes from troubled youth. Today is the day that we need to make a difference. We need to wake up from this mass coma and take action. There are too many kids having kids and on who’s paycheck? Mine. Yours. Not theirs. I work my ass off everyday so I can pay for someone else to take care of your children. Every day, I pay for the food that goes into your ungrateful stomach; I’m the one who pays for your pathetic waste of life. Every year I see countless amounts of children getting pregnant and on my dime, and nine months later, doing it all again. Why are we okay with this? Why do we enable this behavior to keep happening? Generations of the same mistake all under the same roof. Am I the answer to all your problems? Am I the problem? Am I the answer to all your problems? Am I the problem or the solution? Do I not make a difference in people’s lives? How did I become the scapegoat you use me as? It seems as if this world has gone mad. It seems as if this world has gone mad. Kids are running wild in the streets fending for themselves and doing a poor job at it. It’s not their fault and it’s not mine. Go ahead and call me the problem, I’m a humble man, I can take the hits. And when the lights go down, I won’t be around, waiting for you. And when the lights go down, I won’t be around, waiting for you. Don’t come crawling to me asking for help. You’ve outstayed your welcome and asked for way too much. I do what I do because I want to give. You do what you do because you’re a fucking leech.
Track Name: Endless Bummer
Take me to a peaceful place where we can walk down the streets. I want to trust those around me, is that too much to ask for? I’ve lost all hope for this human race. With cries of paranoia and pleading for help, you choose to look away. You choose to look away. Irrational decisions, a lack of control. Your actions were repeated over and over. Where is your conscious? Do you have one? The system has failed us. The system has failed us. Was it righteous? Does it make you more a man? I don’t care if you’re sorry, you won’t get my pity. Is this what you wanted to be known for? Is this your way of living forever? How do you expect me to look you in the eyes? How do you expect anyone to look you in the eyes again? How do you expect anyone to ever look you in the eyes again? What you did was a crime against nature. What you did was a crime against humanity. You’ll get no sympathy from me. “What is happening behind your eyes? Is your mouth pulled wide in a grin or is that a rictus of agony? Is your mind sweet and soft with triumph, or do fear, pain, and remorse pound on the inside of your skull like angry beasts seeking escape? What is happening?” What is happening with this world?
