Track Name: Demons Mind
Do you got the guts to take a look inside,
Only time will tell if you'll run and hide,
Do you got the trust, to cross over the line,
Will you stand up and hold your own, one more time.

Inside this demons mind, scratch the surface and you will find,
A victim of reality, drown in the morality,
Like a drug i can take you there, a taste of suffering and despair,
On your knees you'll pray and beg, only realise at the end.

Do you got the guts to pull out the knife,
That you stabbed right in my back to bleed out my life,
Do you got the trust to question what you see,
Your god may forgive you but i will set you free.

Inside this demons mind, scratch the surface and you will find,
A victim of reality, drown in the morality,
Like a drug i can take you there, a taste of suffering and despair,
On your knees you'll pray and beg, only realise at the end.

(solo)

Inside this demons mind, scratch the surface and you will find,
On your knees you'll pray and beg, only realise at the end.
Track Name: March
In another time long ago, in the day of honor in war,
Bonded by blood awaiting genocide, with no hesitation to give their lives,
Fast forward to the modern day, the motherfuckers are protected by their own laws.
If you don't do what they say, their gonna hunt you to your fuckin grave.

Stand tall for what you believe,
Take down your motherfucking enemy,
Wont listen i reject deceit,
No surrender, Defeat.

A cold heart looking over disciples, life or death it's not their choice,
In this vain they try to mold you, another motherfucker held to the gun,
Breaking through the fog of war, forced upon innocent lives,
The answer you seek in time you'll find, a primitive instinct to survive.

Stand tall for what you believe,
Take down your motherfucking enemy,
Wont listen i reject deceit,
No surrender, Defeat.

(solo)
Track Name: Guilt
Twisting and turning my conscience decides,
The guilt of a thousand sins buried inside,
Into the darkness i sense the distain,
Digging in deeper, dark secrets contained.

Run from yourself aware of your crimes

Nervous and sweating and screaming in pain,
Visions so vivid the nightmare remains.

The voices are calling, the time has arrived,
For all this displeasure, the truth you can't hide,
The pressure is mounting, dissolving control,
You've burnt out all bridges, consuming your soul.

Run from yourself aware of your crimes

Nervous and sweating and screaming in pain,
Visions so vivid the nightmare remains.

(solo)

Twisting and turning my conscience decides,
The guilt of a thousand sins buried inside,
Into the darkness i sense the distain,
Digging in deeper, dark secrets contained.

Nervous and sweating and screaming in pain,
Visions so vivid the nightmare remains.
Track Name: Forgotten Road
I've been around and i seen things that you'll never know,
My life is what i have made it and it's how I've grown,
Don't try to tell me the things that i already know,
Your time is coming and you will be sorry my foe.

I can't see, what is wrong with me.
Somebody help me, set me free,
How will i know which way i should go,
So this is life on the forgotten road.

I know what lurks in the darkest place deep in your mind,
Shades of my former self i have only left behind,
When will you realise the things that i want you to know,
Follow down this road and you'll wind up down in the hole.

I can't see, what is wrong with me.
Somebody help me, set me free,
How will i know which way i should go,
So this is life on the forgotten road.

(solo)
Track Name: Can't Break Me
I've been thinking a lot about things in my head,
It has taught me to know just who i am,
I wont hear no more of your excuses,
I took the time to find myself again.

I found myself again, you cant break me you never will,
Through the shit and the pain, you life slowly will fade away,
I found myself again, you cant break me you never will.

I regret nothing i ever said, to you,
And i regret nothing i ever did,
I've had enough of you and that's fucking it,
I took the time to find myself again.

I found myself again, you cant break me you never will,
Through the shit and the pain, you life slowly will fade away,
I found myself again, you cant break me you never will.

(solo)

I found myself again, you cant break me you never will,
Through the shit and the pain, you life slowly will fade away,
I found myself again, you cant break me you never will.
Track Name: When I Die
How can everyone be right?, no wonder we all want to fight,
Righteous enough to decide, to fade out anothers light,
I'll question you just the same, pounce at the hint of pain,
Feeding on the desperation.

This path is chosen for you, your fate you can't elude,
Your opinions do not matter, it's not our point of view,
Can you hear the voice's calling, screaming buy the shit we sell,
For eternity you'll suffer, die a million deaths in hell.

When i die, i die,
When i die, i die,
When i die, i die,
When i die, i die.

Spreading fear into lives, of those who won't compromise,
A cunning plan to convert, with threats of your demise,
A sinister motivation, psychological manipulation,
The fear inside, the wrath of intimidation.

If you give yourself today, i will wash your sins away,
No meaning to your existence, i see glory in your pain,
From the time of man's conception, with the power of deception,
We will bring you to your knees, control what you believe.

When i die, i die,
When i die, i die,
When i die, i die,
When i die, i die.

(solo)
Track Name: The Hard Way
I don't care just what you see - what you see,
When you lock your eyes on me - your eyes on me,
Your gonna find out anyway - the hard way,
That you'll have fuckin hell to pay,
Do what i say not what i do - what you do,
Is all i ever hear from you - hear from you,
You better practice what you preach - what you preach,
Or innocent will fall like sheep.

What you want and what you need, these are two different things,
Take what you want, get what you need,
You'll get no sympathy,
What you want and what you need, these are two different things,
Take what you want, get what you need,
You'll get no sympathy.

I don't care just what you say - what you say,
What is your excuse today, what's your excuse,
You're only foolin yourself - only foolin you,
But you dont fool nobody else, hahaha,
You better wake up and face the fact - face the fact,
You got that monkey on your back - monkey on your back,
Your mind corrodes i see the cracks - see you crack
Through bloodshot eyes, your mind is trapped.

What you want and what you need, these are two different things,
Take what you want, get what you need,
You'll get no sympathy,
What you want and what you need, these are two different things,
Take what you want, get what you need,
You'll get no sympathy.

(solo)
Track Name: Talkin Shit
This how a problem starts,
I'm giving in, anger wins,
Nows the time to shut your fuckin mouth,
Everything you say, just gets in the way,
From your grave, you try and hide,
But your tombstone said.

You died, inside, you lied,
But with time you'll pay for your crimes,
You'll cry, inside,
Time to face your lies.

This is how a rumor starts,
Who's the man, talkin shit,
Ask yourself whos buying into it?,
On the phone, all alone,
Cause theres no one else, but yourself,
A lonely man you'll die.

Goodbye and goodnight,
And if i see you on the other side,
I wont hang around, i wont hang around,
Goodbye and goodnight,
And if i see you on the other side,
I wont hang around, i wont hang around.

BURN - the last chance at redemption,
FOOL - no ones listening to you,
NOW - everyone is your problem,
When talkin shit becomes the truth.

When your talkin shit, talkin shit, talkin shit,

Goodbye and goodnight,
And if i see you on the other side,
I wont hang around, i wont hang around,
Goodbye and goodnight,
And if i see you on the other side,
I wont hang around, i wont hang around.
Track Name: Dope
Dancing with the devil and it's taking it's toll,
It's the end of the line can't resist anymore,
Years of abuse have yeiled control,
To redeem myself this much i owe.

Back at the start when we very first met,
You made me higher than i've ever ever been,
Where have ya been all of my life,
Never gonna stop untill the day that i die.

I didn't think you would stay so long,
How many times have we been here before,
I'm pained to remember where it all went wrong,
Born into a cycle, it's where i come from.

This brain dead state only feeds my hate,
It makes my decisions, it's sealed my fate,
The time is now, the time is right, it's time to redefine,
Time to start a fight and take back what's mine.

Dancing with the devil and it's taking it's toll,
It's the end of the line can't resist anymore,
Years of abuse have yeiled control,
To redeem myself this much i owe.

(solo)
Track Name: Damage Done
DESTROY - everything you see,
MERCY - bred from the weak,
ANGRY - because you don't belong,
IMPACT - the things you've done.

Trust the voices, they will guide you.

BROKEN - strung out on the floor,
FALLEN - a hundred times before,
LOVELESS - You'll reap what you sow,
NO ONE - will break your fall.

No time to stop and think the rage is taking over,
No time to stop and think the damage is done,
DAMAGE DONE.

DESTROY - all that is real,
MERCY - you can not feel,
ANGRY - the child inside,
IMPACT - scars left behind.

Trust the voices, they will guide you.

BROKEN - vows that were made,
FALLEN - riddled in ya shame,
LOVELESS - trapped in a haze,
NO ONE - elievates your blame.

No time to stop and think the rage is taking over,
No time to stop and think the damage is done,
DAMAGE DONE.

No more - no more shame psychological games,
No more - no more fun the damage is done,
No more - no more lies the truth inside,
No more - no more fun the damage is done.

(solo)

No time to stop and think the rage is taking over,
No time to stop and think the damage is done,
DAMAGE DONE.
Track Name: Hooligans
The anti social, the apathetic,
Time again to defend our city,
For the honor, bound by pride,
Only brothers stand by my side.

What charge will incite the fight tonight,
Play bitch to a copper, i'd rather die,
Corrupt motherfuckers don't know wrong from right,
So why would i listen when your on their side,
Where victims of their greed, where victims of their lies,
Fucking up the their system, broken revenue lines,
We're never gonna feed it.

Hooligans, take revenge.

The time is right, we will not tire,
A glimpse of hate to which i aspire,
I got your back, you got mine,
Suburban warriors march side by side,
The corporate machine it consumes your life,
You've been eating up it's bullshit, corroding your mind,
So sabotage it.

Hooligans, take revenge.

You're the one's who took away my freedom,
We're the one's who challenge what you say.

Who's right and who's wrong,
Regardless the fight goes on,
I loathe you, i detest you,
I'll do everything in my power to destroy you,
My life, my passion,
In this game i find my freedom.

Hooligans, take revenge.
