Track Name: Still Sick
This is the life I live and I won't apologize for shit
No harm, no foul
No remorse, no shame
Keeping my head down
Just to keep myself in the game
You are just an ill blooded fake
And a disgrace to us all
You better pick yourself back up
Just so that I can watch you fall
You don't know me
Or anything that I am all about
You only choose to listen to what those little punks are gonna spit out
But you, just like them, are only a pawn in my game
So step the fuck back because it's time that you got played
You ain't shit
You don't know a god damned thing kid
Think you got us fucking figured out
So give them hell, give them hell
Quit with the bullshit you're still trying to sell
You are what you eat, you shit whatever you believe
So swallow it and stuff it, an esophagus that's full of bullshit
You're full of shit
Track Name: Gut Check
this is not a fucking game to me
you're messing with my house, my family
How dare you try to run my clique
You self inflated egotistic piece of shit
The voice you gain standing on this stage
Means more to me than your pointless claims
Check yourself, you're no better than the rest of us
This scene is ours respect this place before your time is up
We all came from nothing
And we will return to dust
You entitled little punk, I see right through
Your shallow pathetic excuse of a front
You have no right to your claim to fame
So step off your high horse and quit dropping your own name
Respect is earned striving through hard work
Not by daddy's cash, or your Momma's purse
Riding off the backs of others, sucking the fame from your brothers
You leech, deceptive snake
You viral infectious fake
Make way for those who have earned their rightful place
Earn your place
Track Name: Short Breath
you cut all of my fucking air off
But then asked me why I couldn't breath
You killed my urge to stay but then
Asked me why I couldn't leave
I used to call you my angel, my god I thought you were holy
In never thought that you'd abandon me like this, never thought that I could be so lonely
I used to think that this was real
But I don't seem to have a grasp on my reality
And by now I can barely fucking breathe
Where were you when I needed you the most
Where the hell are you now
And where the fuck did you go
You've been nothing but a ghost
You can't just set me on fire but then complain about the heat
I can barely fucking breathe
I am not going to chase you
I loved you enough for the both of us
Fuck
Keep all of my love and lies just to keep you here with me
I'll remain in your dreams, nothing but a memory
Track Name: Corset
not going to be ridiculed, not going to stand feeling minuscule
Not going to be a witch burned at the stakes
Fueled by fire and engulfed with flames
I'll bite the fucking hand that feeds
So I won't have to die on my hands and knees
Not another gear in the birthing machine
I have a voice I have a reason I will be heard and seen
Maybe I was born this way or maybe it's the fucking maybelline
How much longer will my sisters have to suffer
How much longer will I have to wipe away their tears
I am a daughter and a sister and a mother and a lover but that is not what defines me
I'm not your baby, not your doll, I'm not your sweetheart, I'm not yours
Don't look at me, don't touch me, don't treat me like I'm some prize to be won
I belong to myself and nobody else, not meant to be a trophy put up on a shelf
For the world to see and to pick apart at the seams
I'll fight like a girl and I will win like one too
Not going to stand for some stupid motherfucker like you
Who just wants to try to tell me what to do
Like how to speak and sit, like I'm some fucking bitch
I was not put on this earth to please
I am a fucking queen and my crown is made of thorns
Track Name: SOS
You're here to prove you're tough? You're here to start a fight?
No one gives a fuck, you better swallow your pride
You're not the first to get hit, so nothing gives you the right
To start some mindless ass shit and seek revenge out of spite
Know where you're at, don't get it twisted
This ain't no safe space mother fucker
Fucking smash everything and everyone that you see
But respect the rage that we're all here to release
Shed your skin, you fuckin snake
There's nothing left of you cuz you're a fuckin fake
Drop the front, you'd break your spine
Cuz you have no foundation and your life is a lie
The only reason you have something to prove is because you stand for nothing and have nothing to lose
You raise your fists against your brothers
Where's the respect for each other
You weren't the first, won't be the last
To take a hit, to leave this shit
Bloodied and bruised
Stand back motherfucker, you got nothing to prove
Bloodied and bruised
Take a hit motherfucker you've got nothing to lose
Stop the hate, just fucking rage
Our only solace is right here in this place
You're here to fight? Don't push your luck
If you mess with anyone then you can get fucked
You're a try hard, you always have been
A washed up loser and a weak ass has been
You're here to fight? Don't push your luck
If you messed with anyone than you can get fucked
The only reason you have something to prove is because you stand for nothing and have nothing to lose
You raise your fists against your brothers
Where's the respect for each other
Motherfucker
Track Name: Extinguished
fight fire with fire
Fight hate with hate
Fight ignorance
End bigotry
Racist scum still walk this earth
Senseless hate must be unlearned
We can not allow these beliefs to remain
We must destroy every fucking strain
We won't tolerate intolerance
We won't give bigots and audience
We will tear down the foundations of racism within our nation
The task is ours to attack ignorance to end race wars and crush intolerance
No apathy, it's time to stand and fight against bigotry
Racism will burn and die
Ignorant filth will burn at the stake
Weak minded fools will feel our hate
Your racist views have no fucking place
Get the fuck out of here or get a broken face
Close minded and weak
You fear what you don't believe
The truth you fail to see
You are your worst enemy
Fight fire with fire
Fight hate with hate
Fight ignorance
End bigotry
