Track Name: Time & Pressure - Hiroshima Lovers
I thought I’d closed
The book on you so many years ago
But that’s just another
“I told you so,” for you
You made me a man
A person, a thing
And secretly I know
I can’t just walk away

Remember when you tried
To give me a new name?
It was the last thing that you could
Take from me
And when the bright lights come
Shining down on me
It’ll be our shadows, embracing,
That will remain

You’re the woman who
Made the man who made the monster
How very Mary Shelley of you
You gave me a mark
You dirtied my skin
With the outline of our shadows
A bookmark for your mess

The greatest poetry that
I could ever write
Was tears streaming
Down your face
Knowing I gave you in an instant
What you did to me over time
Sweet revenge—that was our love to me

No one will ever love me like you did
I hope no one ever loves me like you did
I am only what you made me
And our outline hides in every page
Of this beautiful tragedy
Are you still satisfied?
Look on your works and despair

You and me in fearful symmetry
Chat Conversation End

Track Name: Spirits - Fearful Symmetry (Live in France)
We've all been pushed to the edge
there's no time left to hesitate
the fate of the world is resting in our hands
with each new move another species ends

only to fill our senseless needs
where money fuels power and greed

they don't tell you the impact of modern convenience

they just sell you till your body's depleted
then they'll teach you their power pose
Show you the power money holds

The river of fire keeps flowing
as we pretend the flames are harmless
but slowly everything burns up
and we are left with nothing but ash

Don't live under a label
believe in what you contribute to others
let your actions define you
don't let your true self be smothered

people change people
I've seen it, I believe it
Track Name: Life Force - State of Control
The world progresses but power doesn't change.

The world changes but power stays the same.



We've seen it's rise, and evolution,

Through countless acts of greed and corruption,

Made up of millions, uncaring & faceless,

Roots in repression, founded in injustice.



State of control.

Fear is not an option!



Unjust power and unthinkable force,

Serving one purpose, running one course:

To widen the gap between the haves and the nots,

A line in the sand that can never be crossed.



Hiding behind their shocktroops in blue,

You shouldn't fear them, they should fear you.
Track Name: Redbait - Frat Boys (Tear It Up)
You think youre so bad i think that youre not
Living off of daddys cash and smoking lots of pot
You can laugh at me until your heart's content
Im not the one who has to pay for all my friends
Frat boy - date raper
Frat boy - drug abuser
Frat boy - fucking loser
What you gonna do?
Frat boy - test cheater
Frat boy - world leader?
Frat boy - fuck with me and you're gonna lose
Youre drinking lots of beer
Slandering the queers
Youre feeling up a passed out girl and laughing to your peers
You think that lifes a joke and your checkbook helps you cope
You say friendship i call bullshit when out of cash
You'll be alone
Frat boy - date raper
Frat boy - drug abuser
Frat boy - fucking loser
You call that brotherhood?
Frat boy - fucking dick
Frat boy - make me sick
Frat boy - get out of here
You ain't fucking shit, just a frat boy!
Track Name: Dying For It - Under His Eye
We rats in this maze can go anywhere, as long as we stay inside. Freedom is relative, like everything else. Hope in futility.

Under his eye you rape, degrade, and lie. Under his eye I have no rights. Under his eye the future is bleak. Under his eye the future is a nightmare.

A prisoner of my womb. My body is your domain. Let my soul be redeemed while my body becomes a temple.

My limbs mean nothing, my eyes need no sight. Just a warm womb to grow, while my soul rots inside.

Under his eye you rape, degrade, and lie. Under his eye I have no rights. Under his eye the future is bleak. Under his eye the future is a nightmare.

Blessed be the meek for they shall inherit the earth.

There has to be an "us", because there is a "them".
Track Name: LIFT - The Fact Remains
A serpents tongue
Behind your teeth
Waiting to spew your
Skewed beliefs

Taking advantage
Of the down and broken
Hate runs in
Every word you’ve spoken
I’m waiting for your end

You’ll get your due,
in the harsh light of the truth

You claim you’ve changed
But the fact remains
You use and abuse
The ones who give you their faith
You claim you’ve changed
But the fact remains
Always playing the victim
You’re in love with the pain

Fear through force

Lying to the people
For your own sick gain
You’ll do anything
To save some face
Confronted with something
You can’t escape
I’m waiting for your end

You’ll get your due
In the harsh light of the truth

You claim you’ve changed
But the fact remains
You use and abuse
The ones who give you their faith
You claim you’ve changed
But the fact remains
Always playing the victim
You’re in love with the pain

Now at the end of the noose
The gavel comes swinging for you
Dragged out into the light of the truth
The gavel comes swinging for you
You’ll get your due

THE GAVEL SWINGS
The gavel swings for you
Track Name: Berthold City - Enough!
I've had enough
Have I made it clear?
You turned this place I love
into a place of fear

I've had enough
Enough!

It's up to us

Tore down
what we built up
fuck this shit
I've had enough

And what the fuck have you done?

Can't give in
Can't turn our backs
The time is now
Let's take it back
Track Name: Burdened - Delusion
Delusion.
Tired eyes.
Still bottled up and breaking ties.
Just picking up what's left behind.
There seems to be no end in sight.
I keep on dragging my feet.
Abuse breeds a fragile mind.
Some days I think I'm doing fine.
I've lost my step a thousand times.
The burning thoughts rewind in my mind over and over
I'm used to seeing sunless skies; a dwellers way of feeling fine.
You'll find me in this weary head just riding out the storm instead.
I'd hate to leave it up to me to silence all these memories.
Delusions they fill my head.
A black belt around my neck.
Forced to testify against myself to rid the hurt from me and break free from this hell.
All the best of me was taken from this life.
Track Name: Capitol Offense - Severed (Hatebreed)
Sorrow filled days of disease,
the faceless shadows arise.
The fear once among the lust,
now reflects creations demise.
So to the idols wait for the
impending doom, under a godless sky,
yet we walk
on further atop the broken glass.
For our feet will heal but our
souls stay doused.
With humanity's blood, await the
crucifixion, no one is forgiven,
everything precious lost.
Sanctified to God, carved into
our souls, carved into our past,
our lives severed
Our lives remain severed
Track Name: Rejection Pact - Failed Animal
I still can't come to grips

Can't accept that

this still exists



Faith & history

Twists your knife

of bigotry



Fear guides your way

A tradition without a place



Raising flags,

burning crosses in the dark



A group of relics

Who's time is up.

You'll never belong



Searching for relevance

Ruled by ignorance

Always one step back

Stuck in the past



Racing down a dead end road

Trying to escape

the inevitable



Cloaked in shame

You call it pride

If you're so brave,

Why do you hide?
Track Name: Low End - Poison Choice | War For You (Live in Gary)
Try to hide from all the voices
Telling you, your choice is poison
Day by day, it's getting older
Your disdain won't keep you sober

Room gets darker, light a smoke, take a drag
And you just want to fucking cope
Guess you'll stick to your old vice
Too scared to live
Too scared to die

Never thought I would be just like you
Now it's time, now it's time to wise up

Guess you'll take it for what it is
Pour another, settle in
Justify it with how you feel
Numb it out, like it's not real

Dance with demons, up all night, never clear
Never going to get it right
Guess you'll stick to your old vice
Too scared to live
Too scared to die

Now wise up

Wise up



I'm so fucking sick of your bullshit tendencies
You keep prying, I have no room to breath
I’ve held the weight, now it's your turn to start building
I wont keep fighting this war for you

You will be handed nothing
Life’s a fight
You better start learning
I won't keep reassuring, knowing your weak
You'll never start changing

Taking, taking, never change
Taking, and it will never be right

I'm so fucking sick of your bullshit tendencies
You keep prying
I have no room to breath
I've held the weight and now it's your turn to start building
I won't keep fighting this war for you
Track Name: Treason - N.O.I.S. (featuring : Rob of One King Down)
YOU FUCKING COWARD
YOU WEAK PATHETIC COWARD
ABUSE OUR TRUST
ABUSE YOUR POWER
I SWEAR TO YOU
YOU WILL KNOW WHAT TRUE PAIN IS
YOU WILL KNOW HOW IT FEELS
TO HAVE FEAR IN YOUR HEART
NO ONE IS SAFE
NO ONE IS...
PROTECTED AND SECURE
YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED
I WILL DESTROY YOU ALL
WE WILL DESTROY
WE WILL OVERCOME
Track Name: Clueless - Hollow Words
I don’t need your validation
And I don’t want your fucking opinion
It’s hard to swallow your words
When they negate my life
The reason for me to be here
Isn’t for a girl to blow your fucking mind

And I don’t want your hollow words if you cant see past the way I look equating to my self worth

You think you’re so well spoken
that your words are so fucking kind
But you praise me for my gender and not for my fucking mind

You can’t step out side your own box? And maybe see what it’s fucking like, to have your existence invalidated, by something society deems less than right

And I don’t wanna to hear your opinion cause “female fronted” isn’t a fucking genre
Track Name: Terminal Nation - Flash in the Pan
I helped build this shit from the ground up.

Clinging to a pique, you come just to fill your cup.

You preach about 'improvement' but you don't hear what you say.

You fucking worthless piece of shit get out of my way.



You easily forgotten,

Flash in the Pan.

I know your kind like the back of my hand.

I see through you.

And through all you're about.

Throw in the towel before I kick your fucking ass out.



I'm intolerant to your intolerance.

I'm intolerant to your intolerance.



Telling others they don't belong when you've been the fake all along.
Track Name: True Self - Am I Wasting My Time?
Show me something tangible that can't be refuted.
That proves that this existence is more than consciousness.
Why do I do this?
Why do I exist?
Meaning discovered in time, but how long does it take?
Can you live each day with no meaning set in place.

Am I Wasting My Time?

Just to end up on your death bed in a moment of realization.
Never lived one second for yourself.
Track Name: Brute Force - Cold
Im not who I used to be
The warmth is gone. Cold reality
Over and over its the same old shit
This world is fucked. Full of hypocrites

(ICE IN MY BLOOD)
coursing through my veins
no body left to trust
(COLD TO THE WORLD)
I don't care anymore
Rage and pure disgust

Reaching for help. you don't care
look in the mirror. blank and empty stare.
Cracking a smile but its only a mask
I guess if you have to ask

I'M
COLD TO THE PAST
COLD TO THE PRESENT
COLD TO THE FUTURE
COLD TO YOU

When your life is bleak, but you can’t fucking stand it. You better not let it pass you by you can’t remain silent, because your days are numbered and your time will fold, when you’re stripped of everything, abandoned by this world.
Track Name: Homesick - Nura
Freedom fills me lungs
As I walk the path many have walked, walked before me
The bright shining lights in the dark that guide me home
I will never feel like I am on my own
Never on my own

Everything I am is because of you
Everything I need you give me to
Feel the earth breath me in as I breath it
Everything I need you give to me

And then I wake to hear a ear piercing crack
Mothers and fathers gone I will not have back
As I'm dragged kicking and screaming
Through pools of blood stained earth
Thrown into black
Shackled and trapped

Deprived of humanity I won't retract
Deprived of my sanity I will fight back
It's like I never existed, turn blade it's twisted
