Track Name: Self Worth
Self worth and self-loathing, Have made the best of company. Trying to tear me down, to break my mold, I’ll stick to what I believe and the views that I hold/ I won’t change to fit your description, I won’t go back on the progress I’ve made. Stop looking at me and look at your self, Figure out what really needs to change/ Don’t look at me to change/ This is who I am, this is how I’m gonna be/ You will never change me, I won’t sacrifice myself to become what you want. Let the poison sink in, your mind is tainted and weak by the loss of control.
Track Name: Betrayer (Ft. Ryan of Fractured)
False words, you’re living a lie, Hidden motives move behind your eyes. Betrayer at heart, misguided at best, You reap what you sow, and I won’t forget/ Try to break me down, and ruin this, Clinging to some sense of power. Betrayer at heart, misguided at best, You’ve had no grip, you’ll leave a coward/ Stitched up the wound, Tail between your knees. Still I won’t look back, You’re just a thief/ You can’t take this from me, Even if my hands are dead and cold. I’ll keep fighting for this, I’ll keep moving forward. Forgive and forget, This taste in my mouth. Move towards the dawn, And spit you out.
Track Name: Misplaced
Feeling out of step, feeling out of place, my anger has found a new face. So misdirected, so uncontrolled. I’m just lashing out, just feeling bold/ I’m starting to feel misplaced, wasted anger and wasted breath. But I’m learning that, there’s less to regret/ I’ve got to find a new way to let this out, I’ve put too many holes in my good walls. But this scene, is my escape. Maybe I’ve found my place/ I’m not misplaced, I’m just feeling lost. I’m not misplaced, I’m just finding myself/ I’m starting to feel misplaced, wasted anger and wasted breath. But I’m learning that, there’s less to regret.
Track Name: Backwards Youth
I'm so sick of the scene these days, there's no comradery. I wish you felt the same, you're just too cool for hardcore/ You stick to your cliques, with your obscure taste, Judging others, that aren't the same. What happen to the days when nothing mattered, 'cept going to shows, and being with bros. No rivalries, just loving the scene, Now all I see are crews and wannabe's. We are the ones that society spit out, We should be writing songs that we can yell and shout. (Get that out of here) I'm so sick of the scene these days, there's no comradery. I wish you felt the same, you're just too cool for hardcore/ We get no respect, or worth to our name, But you're no better, no, you're to blame. It doesn't matter who's the toughest in the pit, Cause in the end, we're all the backwards youth/ We are the backwards youth of today, We get no respect, or worth to our name. We gotta treat each other, How we wanna be treated/ You ain't better than us, we're just the same, Don't try to glorify, your role in this game. Hating on everything, that isn't you, So just lose the ego, we ain’t got the room/ You stick to your cliques, with your obscure taste, Judging others, that aren't the same. What happen to the days when nothing mattered, 'cept going to shows, and being with bros. No rivalries, just loving the scene, Now all I see are crews and wannabe's. We are the ones that society spit out, We need to stand as one, We need to stand as one. Cause we're the backwards youth/ I'm so sick of the scene these days, there's no comradery. I wish you felt the same, you're just too cool for hardcore.
Track Name: Talk Is Cheap
You run your mouth, I’m surprised it doesn’t fall off, The next time you run it, I’ma knock it off/ Behind your mouth is a coward, Behind your eyes is fear. Now your motives, now your actions, Are crystal clear/ I’ve found the key, I’ve kept my word. We deserve the same, And soon you’ll learn/ Actions speak loud, But you’re so quiet. Run your mouth, I don’t buy it/ Words fall short/ Hiding back, Can’t keep your words. Mouth sewn shut, So choke them down/ Until you can’t breathe/ Behind your mouth is a coward, Behind your eyes is fear. Now your motives, now your actions, Are crystal clear. You’ve got no respect, It’s something that you earn. Not by running your mouth, But by keeping your word.
Track Name: Temperance
I’ve found the strength to keep my head clear, to better myself. A commitment between me and me, I’ve set myself free from the pressures of this world/ I’ve learned just who I am, I’ve learned what I want to be. I don’t need to drink to feel complete, I’ve found a path that best suits me/ These are my choices, these are my actions, what I believe. And I can be proud, of the choices I’ve made, I’ve found the strength/ But my choices only weigh on me and who I am, don’t try to twist my words. I’m not here to judge you, just better myself and lend a helping hand/ I’ve found the strength to stand for what I believe, this is my commitment and you won’t take it from me.
Track Name: Grave Robber
Waiting for death, is a part of this life, Born with the end in mind. Struggling to find, this purpose of mine, With darker thoughts creeping up behind/ Losing my grip, On this life. I’m fighting to find, A peace of mind/ Reminders of death, are always in sight, I won’t wait on anyone, to live my life. When it comes to an end, don’t bat an eye, I’ll make this worth it, just say goodbye/ Losing my grip, On this life, but/ I’m learning to live with the hand that I’m dealt, And in the end, I’ll carry on with no one else. It weighs on my mind, and brings me down, But I’ll find comfort deep in the ground/ When I’m laid to rest, Six feet under. Know I gave it my best, Know I’ve came to terms, With the life that I live. So let death come, The reaper has no hold on me.
Track Name: Minority
We get written off like we've done something wrong, They say we've been up to no good all along. But you're in no place, to judge me, Look at your self, you're just as ugly. You spend your time just wasting away, While you fall down, we set the pace. Just keep my head down, you're not worth my time, At the bottom of a bottle, there's not much to Find/ We're a minority that gets lost in the underground, So don't try to pretend that you know what we're about. If you have something to say then you better spit it out, You're so much better, just livin' life, well I have my Doubts/ No matter what you do, you'll never change us, This is what we choose, and you can hate us. For the way we live, and the things we do, You're so close-minded, you ain't got a clue/ We're a minority that gets lost in the underground, So don't try to pretend that you know what we're about. If you have something to say then you better spit it out, You're so much better, just livin' life, well I have my. Doubts that you're as great as the role that you portray, Try to act like you can really look down on me/ In a world full of fakes (Full of fakes) We are a minority (We're just a minority)/ Look at your self, you're in no place to judge, You follow what you're told to say. Don't look now, you're out of time. Look at your self, you're in no place to judge, You've pushed us too far back this time. Don't look now, you've crossed the line/ Spit in my face again and you'll deal with a fist, Who put you on a pedestal, I've had enough of this. Hate on me to bring meaning to what you do, But when it comes down to it, you'll always/ Lose. I've had enough of you, I've had enough of this. And I'll knock you down, With my fist/ We get written off like we've done something wrong, They say we've been up to no good all along. But you're in no place, to judge me, Look at your self, you're just as ugly. You spend your time just wasting away, While you fall down, we set the pace. Just keep my head down, you're not worth my time, At the bottom of a bottle, there's not much to Find.
