Track Name: Island
a victim of my rage, i'm a very lonely man.
the force of a gang, but on my own i stand.
one deep.
i crawl, i climb, but i find no peace of mind.
i’ve lived, i’ve learned:
a man who forgives is a man deceived.
a man who forgets hasn’t learned a thing.
i wake up and wonder what the fuck i’m doing
in this daily hell we call life.
i’ll be damned if i’m the only one.
Track Name: One Deep
i plead the fifth because my brain is just a mess.
from sun rise to sun set, the sad truths of life are all i’ve met.
we all walk alone and face these walls that we’ve bloodied our fists trying to wreck.
lick your wounds and fuck the world
because only yourself deserves your best.
i can do bad on my own.
Track Name: Tick, Tick
the evil i’ve seen in people’s eyes, it breaks my heart.
so many wolves in a sheep’s disguise, it’s dog eat dog
and i take, i take, i take, i take
until i break, i break, i break
and i cannot promise what or when.
i’m ripping at the seams and it seems
no matter how much weight is on my head,
i cannot keep it on
and i take, i take, i take, i take
until i break, i break, i break
and i cannot promise what or when.
i take until i break.
9 times out of 10, i bear the grief and grin
but on the 10th time, i bare my teeth and… break.
Track Name: Anthrophobe
day after day i burn another nerve.
as if i need this...shit eating grins laughing in my face.
as if i need this shit.
the more i see the less i sleep
so the less i sleep the better i'm off.
the more i live the more i sour.
hate for this world to the Nth power.
infinite discontent, my only sentiment.
forever carved in stone, permanent, set in cement.
Track Name: Choices II
i've had all that i can take. got a past to leave in my wake.
i move on with all my weight. full speed ahead won't pump my brakes.
used to plod, used to trudge. now i push, now i shove.
in my way, taste my dust. no compromise, don't give a fuck.
life wants to win. i'll beat the odds i know.
no more weakness. i'll beat the odds i know.
gimme this, gimme that. take and take, no slack.
step too close, take two back. better not cross my path.
used to plod, used to trudge. now i push, now i shove.
in my way, taste my dust. never give a fuck.
i am my own man now, i don't need your hand out.
preemptive strike, i turn my back on all of you, on my own.
never ever give a fuck.
on my own.
Track Name: Forward Thinking
the nerve of me to think i could step a foot outside this rut that i fit so perfectly into.
my path is blazed.
i tear through this bitch with the heart of a lion.
used to be a coward but now i’m fighting.
swinging for the fences and for gold i’m mining.
never had luck looking for silver linings.
i’ll take and take till i get what i need,
don’t need to change just to succeed.
nothing wrong with being me,
i’ve been my own worst enemy.
enough.
this is me for better or worse.
i’ve been this way ever since my birth,
so bury me with the scum, the cursed,
the filth: forgotten, alone from an endless search.
Track Name: Jukai
i live in a world that i fucking hate.
i don't belong and i don't relate
to the bullshit you all swear by.
all i can do is end each day alive.
i'm finding reasons to breathe are few and far between.
if we're made in his image then i will sin just to burn in hell.
braindead bodies on a dead-end march
in the name of paradise, such a farce.
if there's no heaven then god is a crook.
if you never saw this coming, you forgot to look.
gun to my head, it should be no surprise.
noose 'round my neck, are you really surprised?
