Track Name: Breaking Point
Force fed your identity
Take off your mask you're not unique
Can't speak, you're drowning
Made astray with your own two feet
Find the poison that's killing me
Wake me from this endless sleep
Born lost, unclean
Sick of everything I see
Blind to yourself, sick of everything I see
Let's see you speak with my fist through your
teeth
No sense in apologies
I want you to see what I see
What my worlds come to be
Track Name: Flock Following
Surrounded by people in disguise
And no one seems to see it through my eyes
Let's just face the facts
Snake in the grass I see through your act
I'm sick of living through this life
Surrounded by all these petty lies
Transparent you can't run or hide
Held down by your binding ties
You're a servant to deceptive claims
No way to numb the pain
So, flock following sheep
All you do is preach
Bred to follow the herd
Frauds like you stick together
Satisfied following lies
Track Name: Excuse
An average life I don't want to lead
Destroy the cycle of how it used to be
Objectified through your power and greed
Striving to satisfy your twisted needs
Fight against the people that make an excuse
That neglect the ones battered and brusied
A nation built from hate in the past
A rocky foundation not meant to last
We can see their flaws
But they refuse to change
It's in our hands
Put them in their place
Smash it - the assumed role
Oppressors made to understand
Single those fucking cowards out and cast them
down
Cast them down
Track Name: Life Sentence
Serving a life that's neglecting mine
Something you'll never see eye to eye
You're living beyond privilege to your life
Stripping away their most basic rights
Accuse, abuse, victimize
Torment that you'll never recognize
Never known a life of pain
Never walked a path so strained
The same old thinking the same old ways
When will you change your sense of mind
Who's the one taking all the blame
It's your obligation to realize
There's no reason, when your backs to the wall
What will you do when your old views fall
Track Name: Reality Check
Blind to the world around you
Open your eyes and seek some truth
You're following society
Why why why
Can't you see
You compromise morality
Now you're lost for eternity
Tainting your future
Wallow in shame
Taking no action
Living in vain

Blind to the world around you
Open your eyes and seek some truth
You're following society
Why why why
Can't you see
You compromise morality
Now you're lost for eternity
Trapped inside your ways
One day you'll pay
You've got it twisted
You're sick in the head
It's about time
For a reality check
