Track Name: The Last Stand
The time has come to make a stand
For zero hour is at hand, innocent blood
stains the land. Behind closed doors our FUTURES PLANNED.
Slave masters PLOT DESTRUCTION, while eyes are closed
to THE CORRUPTION. Banking cartels pull the strings of
the media control machine. Hypnotizing us we're DECEIVED
through the lies that they have CONCEIVED. We are being led to BELIEVE
we must live down on our knees. Tensions rise, the BOILING POINT
IS NEAR. Exhibit control through the GRIP OF FEAR, the pictures becoming clear...
We must rise or BECOME OBSOLETE

Verse
_____

A volatile mix of hate and warfare taking place BEFORE OUR EYES
I refuse to stand defenseless, turn my back and watch the DEATH TOLL
RISE.Insurgents maimed, beaten and betrayed. Terrorist tactics
are displayed. Citizens held against their will. They're shackled, detained and enslaved.



Chorus
______

IT'S NOW!

Man against man
Divide and conquer
A bitter conflict
with one clear victor
We must RISE-
Against the tyrants
Overcome-
or the whole world burns

Verse
_____

In cold blood they murder in our name
Black op teams target and invade
Drone Strikes civilians killed
Collateral damage mass graves are filled.
(Fighting a war that we can never win
Fighting a war that we WILL never win.)


Chorus
______

IT'S NOW!

Man against man
Divide and conquer
A bitter conflict
with one clear victor
We must RISE-
Against the tyrants
Overcome-
or the whole world BURNS

Track Name: Down But Not Out (featuring EMS of Human Animal)
They build you up just to tear you down
vultures and leeches who try to suck you dry
Fight back! Don't be a victim of these malicious bastards
When it seems like you can't go on Stand Tall Dig Deep
find the strength within yourself. Belief and Self Worth and
a battle tested resolve


(EMS of Human Animal)
I wanted to give up, just throw in the towel. I had to do some self examination
Look deep inside, see what I was made of. I peered into the mirror, it stared back into my soul
The voice inside my head screamed out : "You're down, but you're not out! You're never out!"
You're down but you're not out....You're down but you're not out....repeat


I descended to the lowest depths of self. I felt so alone
Erased the weakness from within
Removed the cancerous doubt that had infected my will
Found my strength and my purpose once again
and now I'll never stop! I'll break through whatever stands in my way!


"You're down, but you're not out! You're never out!"
You're down but you're not out....You're down but you're not out....repeat


Baptized in fire but never burned.
I'm a product of lessons learned
Cut my teeth / I stand alone. This will of mine is carved in stone
Eyes are set with laser focus
Intensity dies hard I dominate
I'll never give up / Never give in
I'm in this life to win!
Track Name: The Island
The sun shines bright above me
I can feel it's heat upon my skin
the crowd surging in anticipation
as they wait for the bloodshed to begin
another clash of the titans
another one for the ages
immovable meets unstoppable
Now let the Carnage ensue...


chorus
fight to stay alive
This is do or die
Rise like a phoenix from the ashes

Your name will become
A legend for all time
fight to stay alive
Your name will become


Foes locked in eternal struggle
no inch or quarter given
Refusing to surrender
Neither man will ever back down
Grit your teeth dig down inside
intestinal fortitude is the measure of
these men. Two will enter only one man
will leave.....


chorus
fight to stay alive
This is do or die
Rise like a phoenix from the ashes

Your name will become
A legend for all time
fight to stay alive
Your name will become


Never question/Never challenge
simply do as you have been told
Reprogrammed to not feel pain or empathy
to be a killer
Never question/Never challenge
simply do as you have been told
Better Stronger Faster
I have been reborn
the perfect weapon
