Track Name: Hard To Exist
Due's are paid.
Don't trust the rest.
That's why I play my cards close to my chest.
Every step I take, I one step closer to death.
It's hard to exist.
Track Name: Corporate Punishment
Filled with hate, consumed by doubt.
Just trying to figure it all out.
Start to think there's to much on my plate.
I used to think we had control of our own fate.
Cross your fingers and hope for the best.
I hope this is as bad as it fucking gets.
Endure alittle bit more, we must be getting ahead.
It can't be this bad, I hope it's all in my head.
Digging deeper, discover the lies.
Realize that we're living on the front lines.
Now weve come to take back what we've earned.
Deny us that and that and this country will find fucking burn.
You're the one who's tried to silence our voice.
You didn't give us much of a fucking choice.
Corporat Punishment.
Track Name: Believer
Close your eyes so you don't see the lies.
Ears closed so you don't hear the truth.
Live in a fantasy, far from reality.
Purposely ignoring the truth that's so plain to see.
Go through life with your eyes wide shut.
It's like screaming at a wall and I've had enough.
How far you gonna bury the truth.
Not long until your hands are tied.
Times up, now you lose.
Because the truth is the truth, their ain't a fuckin thing you gonna do.
Spreading lies for as long as it takes.
Now they're wearing thin, and the whole world thinks your a fake.
Tried your best but it all caught up.
It's time to open your eyes and shut the fuck up.
To long you were blind to the truth.
Felt safe behind your curtain of lies.
Picked your path, now you lose,
Because you chose to believe, the lies that were told to you.
Believer of lies.
In exchange, for nothing.
Track Name: Cold Truth
Look me in the eyes, don't look satisfied.
Cold truth, life is cheap.
Half the bad shit I got, I had coming to me.
Then you step up and feel your Chains.
Get used to this life, because there's no escape.
I wasn't given a choice.
When enough is enough.
Never give in never give up.
Track Name: Misery
Thought that I was born free till my reality was ripped.
Now I'm holding onto anything, just to get a grip.
Ignorance was bliss, until I opened my mind.
Ignorance was bliss, until I opened my eyes.
Saw the cold reality there's no such thing as peace.
Struggling to find my way.
But what's the point in all of this.
I live and learned on the streets.
I've made my way in this world through misery.
I live the life.
Life of misery.
Can't get a grip.
Try and keep my feet in the ground, but still I slip.
Track Name: No Justice
I give respect where respects due.
So I don't owe a fucking thing to you.
Always guilty in the eyes of the law.
They don't serve and protect, they harm and neglect you.
There's no justice.
There's no peace.
Until the day that you pay, for all that you've done,
you can keep your apology.
Look at the damage you've done.
How do you even fucking sleep at night.
Just doing your job?
That doesn't make it right.
Your a fucking disgrace.
I give respect where respects due.
So I won't give you a thing.
Your just like me with a gun and a badge.
But you treat me like an enemy.
There's no justice.
There's no peace.
Just a burden on society.
A reminder that we'll never be free.
We will never be free.
Never held accountable for all your mistakes.
The time has come to except your fate.
You want sympathy, you wanna save face.
Learn your place, your a fucking disgrace.
