Pie 04:57
Feeling, lost again, Knowing, I just don’t belong in this world Feeling, so angry, Knowing, that I am not one of you. The Cannibals, of mind control A peace of me, is torn apart Now my soul, is in a hole And Everybody wants to eat a piece of my heart Lost in a world that is filled with zombies Trying to be what they see on the tee vee Everywhere I look I’m surrounded by sheep I try not to trip cause it gets so deep And I, can’t, change, you And you won’t change me What can I do When You won’t let me be Everyone I know is some kind of whore I’m for sale too that’s what I’m singing for if there’s no money in it then I’m out the door I give all I can and you just ask for more And I, can’t, change, you And you won’t change me What can I do When You won’t let me be I’m so tired of fighting I’m so tired of all the dying When will they stop lying? I’m just ready to make it, all go away.

Ignorance 05:37
Ignorance is the root of all hatred Hey, hey, hey are you O-KKK little man in your pretty white dress? Standing on the steps with the sun on your face do you really think that anyone’s impressed? Blow horn hate at full volume you grace the crowd expounding on your lack of progress Inside the capitol leaders now touch themselves excited by the words that you press Everybody does it, not everybody spreads it with a total lack of finesse Even god expounds it, at least that’s what they teach you with the limited views, they possess marching in a rhythm that is set by your fathers you believe that your beliefs are the best down your nose is a long way to look at those you fear and observe and oppress the dumber you are, the better you feel, (life is so easy when you don’t have to deal) the dumber you are, the better you kill (life is so easy when you don’t know what’s real) Ignorance is the root of all hatred I Love You, I Hate You, I Love You, I Hate You… Rile up the country for another war lets go its easy when the enemy is queer Everyone is different there surely they are evil lets kill everyone that’s not, like, here Build up a support for it get everyone to worship it, give everyone a sense of what, to, fear Too many atrocities are fueled by this monstrosity that even when it’s painful for them they, will, cheer planted like a seed it grows until nobody seems to know when it first became a poison so severe it’s easier to fall in line then try to shift out of the binds that don’t match up with the other cogs that’s in the gears this fire, we dance with it, even try romancing it, playing with an oven we are sure to get seared but you better watch your back or you could end up in a sack when you are dancing with a puppeteer this thing brings me to my knees Man will find a cure for every disease But there never will be a cure for this

heaTHEN 05:38
Born into a faith that tells you your god is the righteous one Born into a face that tells you your war is the holy one Standing in your holy house dipping in the water Followed like the sheep you are, dancing to the slaughter Looking down on heathens that would dare to cross your path Knowing in a blinded faith that they will feel your gods wrath Here’s the reason that you love and more the reason what you hate Tolerance is just a word that others say to desecrate Lucky how you’re born to this the universal power Here you stand above the rest watching in your tower All the world should bow down to the god that’s in your pages All the ones that would deny will suffer from god’s rages And I don’t believe, And I don’t believe And I can’t receive, What you’re giving to me I wish I could, But I’m glad that I can’t Be something that’s good, That stands with your slant I’m not worthy to go to your heaven I’m not good enough to meet your god Sacrifice, sacrifice, nailed unto the timber To be a better martyr man you really must be limber To bend the words to fit your path and stay within the facts Bent so far the straw has come to break the camel’s backs You will be forgiven for atrocities you commit You will be awarded for the bodies that you split No matter how abhorrent the things you do in this life As long as your god says it’s good then you can wield his knife Deep inside your blinded faith living is a seed Telling you that all you follow may not really be You shake your head declare resolve and scratch it with your tome But keeping down the truth like that will burn you to the bone Ah. Ah yi, ah high livivighvo Embolyow Yebahnay Heylah Hey Yamdayah Foyah Zehgay Limegah Ovayah Lime Buhvay Ay VayLie Dieduhvuhsie Vava Tanguy Whorah Mondah Vlay I Hay How Lowar Mondah Vlay Ah Songa Rabbah Hayndor Bestor Ryme bar Rahbeh Dote de Zymegror Ahmda Gaylah Dyzar Vriyow

Lies 05:19
now when they went to give us a reason, they based it on the killing season they were scapegoating every infraction, rallying up the troops getting’m excited for some action, and we couldn't see past all the flag waving all the patriotic hysterical masturbating, and everybody got in line the colors that weren't running were there keeping us blind And we, believed the lies and waved our flags and swore that we would win the fight And we, now realize the war that rages on was based on lies We are fighting a war That was started by lies now the cowards that were keeping in power hide behind their parties and hide inside their towers and suppress any kind of dissention with a healthy spoonful of sweet disinformation and now nobody knows what is true except for the sons and daughters that we slowly lose and freedom was never free and we live on our knees so we can stand on our feet

Fall Apart 06:39
Live a life of tatters living one day at a time Keep above the waters and not get out of line Doing what they tell me and sticking to the grind You ever get the feeling that your losing your mind? I don’t care, What you think of me I don’t care, What your little brain, perceives I don’t care, what you think of me just leave me alone I don’t care, What you do, with, your life I don’t care, As long as I’m not under your knife I don’t care, I’m not one of you so leave me alone I try to make a difference but it falls apart I try to mend the stitches of my broken heart But the weight, of the world, on my back has brought it tumbling down I’m ready to let everything fall apart… I have tried, To get my life back into line I have tried, But now I know I’ve run out of time I have tried I have tried but now the meaning has died. I have tried, To keep this chaos locked up inside I have tried, To turn my cheek and let anger slide Off the back of a worm that is eating me alive It’s eating me inside I’m ready to destroy it.

W3 04:23
When will we, see the sun again? When will we, see the son again? Here we stand like men before a king that rules the crown unjust The lies he told will bring the blade that falls upon his rule that’s false Here is his hand (It’s dripping with blood) Here is his heart (So black and so cold) Here is his mind (A device of pure evil) Here is his life (A disease in the making) Here is my hand, (The great equalizer) Here is my heart (It bleeds to be free) Here is my mind (It’s Sharp like the blade it wields) I’ll give you my life (We’ll take what we need) We’ll hold a stand against the king that took the land against our trust We’ll fight against his tyranny and raze his kingdom to it’s knees Here is his hand (With the blood of the innocent) Here is his heart (So full of a hatred) Here is his mind (So black that it’s frightening) Here is his life (So ripe for the taking) Here is my hand, (Let it justify the taking) Here is my heart (It beats ever quickening) Here is my mind (As clear as the message) I’ll give you my life (We’ll take what we need) On the throne sits the crooked king, All his crimes spread before him We will stand like a mountain, Coming down on his head And all the kings subjects, Will cower in fear To them we’ll bring justice, Swift and severe.

Part 04:25
I don’t want to be part of you I don’t want to be what you are I don’t want to be part of you I don’t want to be what you are So sad and decrepit, So obviously stupid So low and inhuman, So horribly human You mate with your money, You love all your money I don’t think it’s funny, That you think it’s so funny And I just keep running, To avoid from becoming The thing that you are (And all that you are) And all that you are (And all that you are) All that I see, Is people unfree Marching with glee, To a fascist decree They follow the cry’s, They follow the lies Raised without eyes, They don’t realize And I just keep running, To avoid from becoming The thing that you are (And all that you are) And all that you are (And all that you are) There’s a machine, deep in the scene And everyone’s a number, that keeps the system clean And if there’s a error, that breaks with the scheme Then the error is corrected, by the system regime 110010110000110100010100111100101111 001000110000010000100001110111001111 000100000001110110000111100100011110 00011111111…

Break 04:32
Watching and waiting for some little measure Down in the gutter we wait for our turn Wretched and cold we are desperate and hungry Just for a glimmer so bad that it burns Walking on streets that are worn by your leather The sunshine must feel good on your delicate hands Can’t you see the shadows in the corner of your eyes? Can’t you hear the moaning, the sobbing and the cries? Why can’t we get one break? Why can’t we just get one break? All that we want is to live in the sun Why won’t you give us a break? Broken and battered we fight for position Hoping that someday our chance will arrive Slipping in the mud we resolve determination Gripping what’s left with the dream still alive There you are passing you choose not to notice us Living in the shadows, trying to stand Hoping that someone will notice us dying here Hoping that someone will reach out their hand Falling, falling, darkness, is calling Reaching, grabbing, screaming, crawling Waiting for the day, when we’ll have our say Falling, falling, falling, falling

Deadly Sally 04:58
Here is a tale of torture and revenge Disguised as a beauty Sally leads us to an end Once before, she was a beautiful soul Trusting, innocent, without a hold got mixed up with an unpleasant fold Took advantage of her undoubting role "She lives so perfect," they exclaimed "Not a crack in her past or a crevice to blame." "Let's play a trick to teach her pain" So they devised a plan, to test her refrain One spooky night, they told her a surprise Was deep in the woods, in the shape of a prize A party for Sally that was the guise So she followed them in, fooled by their lies "NOW!" said a kid, and on her head threw a sack Then they tied up her hands in a senseless attack laughing they fled without once looking back alone in the woods she wandered in the black Days went by, Sally unseen the town got together and searched out in teams "Out in the ditch!" someone's mom screamed there was her body, but her head was not seen Deadly Sally, she's only a head Poor sweet Sally is back from the dead Run from her, no matter what is said For she may kill you as you sleep in your bed Months went by and Sally’s death was unsolved The guilty ones tried, but they couldn't evolve Restlessly they slept due to guilt not dissolved Waiting in their dreams Sally had this resolve: "You were my friends, or so you lead me to believe I'm coming back to kill you for what you did to me." Then all the children could do nothing but grieve As Sally came at night with only death to achieve She glared into their eyes until their bodies were dust and before they dropped dead Sally laughed with disgust Her killing went on, as it was her new lust Now Sally waits to harm those she doesn’t trust So let this be a message to those who harmed her soul For she never wanted anything more than to be whole Sally was an innocent seeking some control But the evil children laughing left her body in a hole. Now every night as it starts getting late Anyone involved in her death will meet their fate There’s nowhere to hide, for she’ll find you like bait Finally her revenge is fulfilled by her HATE

AXE 05:43
Here. I'm standing here. Waiting. For the axe to fall. Why. Why should I fear? By now I am used to it, let the axe fall. And I swear. By the times I have clawed. Out of the dark. Let the axe fall. And here. We all stand here. Waiting for them to, let the axe fall. Were sick of your shit, were sick of your crimes Were sick of the spit, you fling in our eyes Here is my neck, laid out on the deck Put it on check, and let the axe fall… …and cut it off. Fear. Spread by deceit. Spread like disease, let the axe fall Control. You fight for my soul. Now there's only a hole. Let the axe fall Fight. Or flight. Just try it and see. And let the axe fall And We. We all stand here. Were waiting for them to try. Let the axe fall.

You are not a man (You're just a little boy) You are not a king (You're just a silly puppet) Hanging from a string (you do the silly dancing) All the children scream: “What a funny thing!” Chasing after butterflies that always get away Laughing at the children that follow and obey Don’t you see the faces that are slowly turning grey? The smell of smoke is rising and the patrons are afraid Why, do you hate your children? Why, do you send them to war? Why, do you feed the greedy? You take a little more yes you take a little more... Billions for the war, nothing for the poor You're just a little boy (you are not a man) With your little toys (and your little plans) Crying when you're angry (and screaming when you’re mad) If you don't get your way: “Then everybody’s bad!” Playing with the world like it's some kind of a game When it isn't working right you find someone to blame Don't you see the faces that are filling up with pain? The smell of smoke is rising and the patrons are insane NOTHING!!!

Foold 05:21
We got fooled again, Down for another ride Passed around the windows, For a brand new set of lies We got fooled again, A trick to kill the poor Money for the rich, And a way to keep the score We got fooled again, Believing in our sins Where did the war begin, Who will stop to win? We Got Foold Again! We got fooled again, Taken in by so called friends There to represent us, Instead they kicked us in the chin We got fooled again, forgot the mistakes that were made the last time Our freedom slowly burning and we can’t keep count of all the crimes We got fooled again, Is everybody in? Is everybody in because the revolution is ready to begin Some nationalistic fools, Try to use me like a tool Try to say that I’m to blame, Because my opinions aren’t the same They try to pin me to a side, While standing on the rail they try to ride But I’d rather be here fighting, Then indifferently uniting And when buildings fell, And everyone was screaming The first thing I was thinking, Is what did we do to deserve this? WHAT DID WE DO TO DESERVE THIS?!!
