Track Name: Liar
LIAR LIAR LIAR (sink your fangs in) LIAR LIAR LIAR (you seek to control) LIAR LIAR LIAR (I will not give in) You are not built to handle what I've become (what I've become) Your wounds have left me scarred A dead soul with a loveless heart. A shattered shell. Former self, has been reborn to (take revenge on you) You shed my blood, left me for dead But my vengeance is eternal You left me down in that dark hole and thought that I would (just die) You filled my head with self doubt and stripped away (my pride) Chorus Fear is a LIAR It's a hand trying to drag me down. To hold me back. To Break my spirit. Stifle me and crush my dreams. I'll break free from your iron grip I'll overcome with inner strength Fear is a liar It's an anchor that will NEVER (hold me down) I'll break free from your iron grip I'll overcome with inner strength I will not fall to you I owe you nothing I will END YOU...(END YOU)
Track Name: Seeds Of Corruption
The seeds of your corruption are bearing poison fruit that you feed the starving masses Leave us dying and destitute Oppressed and shackled for far too long We'll break these chains of imprisonment tearing down the gallows and the walls of confinement. Made us slaves in our own land Sever the ties of a powerless life Relight the fire that they thought had died Stand up strong and draw your line in the sand Break away from the grip of the masters hand I will not bow / I will not break false convictions shatter in my wake Your crooked schemes and all your fascist lies Stare down the barrel and close your eyes Don't tell me how to live Don't tell me who to be(who to be) All that I've ever wanted from you is just to be set free(be set free) Don't tell me how to live Don't tell me who to be(who to be) All that I've ever wanted from you is just (be set free) Riots flare in the city streets the mob is taking over Crimson flames light the sky as people run for cover A modern day Sodom and Gomorrah cut throat society you've kept the poor man under a boot heel Now we'll revolt and strike you down Don't tell me how to live Don't tell me who to be(who to be) All that I've ever wanted from you is just to be set free(be set free) Don't tell me how to live Don't tell me who to be(who to be) All that I've ever wanted from you is just (be set free)
Track Name: War Of Words
Look into my eyes and lie to me and you do it with a smile You take my words then you twist them Corrupt my honesty Distortion of the facts and a cocky smile Signals betrayal(BETRAYAL) Hand in hand with the parasites and leeches Prosper in this den of thieves Chorus It's a war of words and I'm coming for you Guns blazing armed to the teeth You brought a knife to this gunfight The only taste you'll know is defeat (x2) (You!) You're not like me! you're just a prostitute for the powers that be (You!) You just don't see that you've sold your soul to live life on your knees You sacrifice who you really are just to get ahead. (to get ahead) Selling out for material gain. you've had the pleasure, now here comes the PAIN! Chorus It's a war of words and I'm coming for you guns blazing armed to the teeth You brought a knife to this gunfight The only taste you'll know is defeat (x2) Outro/Chorus 2 I'm declaring war on you and everything that you believe in There will be no relief I will never relent This is the final showdown you have no time left (x2) There is no absolution Your punishment is death
Track Name: They Live
Blindly obey the words of your false Gods Kneel at their altar/Mindless consumer hordes object worship sell your souls/Bow down so self-absorbed in your quest for material possessions/ You spend your lives away/Such a bleak social commentary/ What happened to brotherhood?, what happened to community? Now there's no KINDness in manKIND/Life's a commodity/ Traded daily for a monstrous profit, line the pockets of your fat cat masters/Meanwhile you starve and kill yourselves to buy goods and services. *Breakdown/Beatdown* Caught up in an endless cycle/Just pawns in the masters hands They pull the strings, you dance in unison./This is the sickness of man. Decline of civility,regression of society, suspension of our basic rights. It's time to UNITE...STAND UP and FIGHT! I won't betray myself My voice will not be silenced/Stand up and fight for my beliefs I will not practice what they preach I'll test the limits of infinity/I will not be restrained I will smash the paradigm/This box cannot contain No shackles will ever hold me down/No chains will ever anchor I've been bruised, battered, beaten and scarred, but you will not defeat me./ I was forged in flames with a will of iron and a heart of steel./ Peel all the layers away and the truth will be revealed./ *Outro/Breakdown* Instrumental (x1) I don't have time for blood or tears/I will not be controlled by fear./I live with a knife at my throat, every second of every day. I don't have time for blood or tears/I will not be controlled by fear./I live with a knife at my throat, every second of every single day.
