Wounds of society fester in our ignorance.  Turning our backs on truth  Covering our eyes defend our ears These tongues grow silent, dry up dry up dry up and wither away  The blood of the poor, mistreated, marginalized are on our hands.  Dripping from finger to toe.  As we witness a  Vulture circling a crow.  We are already dead if we stand in silence.  *Choke on the Blood  We mustn't sleep Follow the Heard like mobs of Sheep Knife stuck in your back so deep Could this pain be...ours to keep? Playing dead is practice for the great demise   It’s time we rise! Wake up the slain  Wake up the defeated! No more playing dead! * *Choke on the Blood  We mustn't sleep Follow the Herd like mobs of Sheep Knife stuck in your back so deep Could this pain be...ours to keep? Don’t follow the lies follow the lies  Politicians hold you down every time  Media is pushing its agenda on you Spreading Division instead of truth  It happens every time every time  Money is worth more than a human life  ...NO MORE! ...WE WONT TAKE IT ANYMORE!!

Mental Break 02:35
All the screams inside my head Ditch the pain- ditch the dread  Tear my skin as it creeps  eyes bloodshot from lack of sleep Pull my teeth out one by one I knew this day would finally come... *Mental Break Down!-Down!-Down!-Down! PMA chase these thoughts away! Mental Break Down!-Down!-Down!-Down! I say my peace and I pray! Mental Break Down!-Down!-Down!-Down! sanity lost, I feel betrayed Mental break down-down-down down down down down — truth is we are all weak future is looking bleak state of aggression  Wrestle with  depression  I preach the PMA Showing signs of decay Is it all in my brain!? Or Am I going INSANE! *Mental Break Down!-Down!-Down!-Down! PMA chase these thoughts away! Mental Break Down!-Down!-Down!-Down! I say my peace and I pray! Mental Break Down!-Down!-Down!-Down! sanity lost, I feel betrayed Mental break down-down-down down down down down — No where to hide Overcome suicide  Trapped in my head The ego has been fed For days and days  Fuel for the fire  My words make me a liar  Death is upon me Who will I offend? Or wake from the dead? Mental Break Down!-Down!-Down!-Down! PMA chase these thoughts away! Mental Break Down!-Down!-Down!-Down! I say my peace and I pray! Mental Break Down!-Down!-Down!-Down! sanity lost, I feel betrayed Mental break down-down-down down!!!

I don't want any dependencies. No booze, No smokes, No dirty drugs please.  No  pills that speed up my mind Cut  GMOs from my food I'll be just fine.  No added sugar  , I thought you should know... These are my choices  They make me whole.   It’s not for me  I don't want any dependencies! Chemical Free! I don't want to alter my Mind! Raw food for me It's my Body... Spit out the  poison! It's about Time! PMA is the choice for me. It stimulates my mind and sets me free.  If this is not how you choose to be... Doing what's best for you is key... I'm opposed to a negative life...  I choose do what's personally right... (x2) Its not for me  I don't want any dependencies! Chemical Free! I don't want to alter my Mind! Raw Food for me It's my Body... Spit out the poison! It's about that Time! ....IT’S ABOUT TIME! I've seen the fate of dependency, in the bar i work and the junkies in the street, its just a few beers for me, but ive seen enough to put respect in what you believe, I've seen friends towing the line, of casually using and losing their minds, we may lead different lives, but both sides of hardcore have to see through and unite Its not for me  I don't want any dependencies! Chemical Free! I don't want to alter my Mind! Raw food for me It's my Body... I Spit out the poison! It's about that Time! Meat and Dairy industry have hooks in you... Bloodlust, Blood money makes us fools... Our bodies are temples made to shine.... Don't fill it with garbage, sludge  and grim... Take a deep breath this is the world we made... I refuse to be an industry slave. I refuse to be an industry slave.

You don’t always die from tobacco Sometimes you just lose a lung. You don’t always die from tobacco. Sometimes they just snip out your tongue. And you won’t sing worth a heck With a big hole in your neck Cause you don’t always die from tobacco. STRAIGHT EDGE!

I won’t let my privilege blind my eyes   stand up for our brothers and sisters of all colors  time to get wise. We Must get wise  Make America Great again!? More like setting us back! misogyny & Hatred   Unity you lack! Politicians scream division from a soap box stage  We the people have been covered by this plague  Stand in real Unity strong! Westernized standards have become (all) wrong Make America Great again!? More like setting us back! misogyny & Hatred   Unity you lack! Backwards thinking is making us blind  Men better than women thoughts we must leave behind  Get wise and leave it all in the past  No political party cares about your (Tink)  Make America Great again!? More like setting us back! misogyny & Hatred   Unity you lack! The state vs you  not red vs blue
