Track Name: Twelve Years
I could tell by the tone of his voice as he choked out the words and we scrambled outside
We knew what would happen but we weren't prepared as I thought about how fast 12 years goes by
felt like shit cause I didn't want to see death's never as noble as it's made out to be
and I can't help but think that I'm at fault emotions replacing my rational thought
but i push the feeling from my mind it's all too easy to bottle it up inside
cause I never learned how to cope just ignore how I feel and try to stay afloat
but the fact I feel nothing just makes me feel worse
it's hard to honor the dead while you're staring at a corpse
and I acknowledge that life moves so fucking fast
mere minutes from goodbye til we've watched him pass
but I know it'll be years before I forget what it's like to watch a friend be taken by death
but I take comfort in knowing his life wasn't a waste
if it hit me this hard when he passed away

three grown men stood in the snow and cried
watching helpless while their best friend died
his breath coming in sputtering gasps
and you wonder which one would be his last
and when his eyes finally closed
you took him to his least favorite place in the world
and you said goodbye with a hand on his head
and it finally hit you he's actually dead
and you realize the only person who's death made you cry wasn't even fucking human
Track Name: Flat
I knew there'd be trouble when the dialogue began
what's the appeal what they don't understand
It started out about the music
but it became more than that
it's infectious it' taking hold
you can't stop
and it's fine if you don't understand
it's fine if you don't understand
Track Name: Settle
The blood on my sleeve
The stain left behind from the memories I grieve and this
Myopic goal
From coal to diamond, the pressure’s tenfold and I
Feel no control
Over a life with no direction and
I can’t believe
That I can survive this infection

Chasing the dragon of the life on cloud nine
Both of our priorities are cursing us blind
Simplicity opposing the extravagant
We both want compromise but we both know we can’t
Nothing purges my heart like holding you back
But after all this I’m still on the attack
With what these years have shown
Fuck the odds, we’ll make our own
Track Name: Spike
The day has come grab my box of broken things and drive to the site of my next kill
as I enter the room the smell of those who have already given up hits me like a railroad spike through the back of the head
I sit down across from my foe doesn't he know that winning isn't everything?
I smile as his spirit is crushed two-nothing.
Track Name: Need Not Apply
Trying to find my way in the world
But what I was promised hasn’t unfurled
Go to school, get a job, don’t
Sit at home and be another slob
Every door I knock on
Gets slammed right back in my face and
I can’t help but feel like
I’m just another chunk of waste

We don’t need you
You don’t belong here
We don’t want you
But show no fear
We can’t stand you
Don’t even try
Your kind need not apply

Inexperienced and unqualified
But my history has not belied the
Time I put in to show my face and
Fake the smile, clothes and grace
So if my presence offends you
Then maybe you need to be offended
I may lie on paper, but
I won’t be misrepresented

We don’t need you
You don’t belong here
We don’t want you
But show no fear
We can’t stand you
Don’t even try
Your kind need not apply
Track Name: Left to Die
How much more do you need space
From this broken and ugly face
How am I supposed to replace the only
Thing that got me through this life
It wasn’t hatred, it wasn’t scorn
Just a love that couldn’t be reborn
My heart’s armor has been shorn off
By your tender knife

What did I do?
I never loved you any less
What did I do?
You left me behind
What did I do?
This fire burning in my heart
Who are you?
Is making me find myself

Could you ever know the feeling
Of watching reality turn to dreaming;
Dealing with the soul-reaming,
Wanton urge to die? Wanting
Nothing more than to slip away
Awaken abhorring every day
This is a game I will not play
I can’t stay here, Why?

What did I do?
I never loved you any less
What did I do?
You left me behind
What did I do?
This fire burning in my heart
Who are you?
Is making me see how much I hate myself

Chasing the dream that you’ll stop chasing yours is driving me further to insanity. It keeps
Hurting and hurting till the end of time and I love that I’ll never break free
This inferno that burns in my mind is so cold and so distant that you can’t relate, but
Close your eyes, take my hands and take my word that the only thing I hate is fate
Track Name: Overwhelmed and Inundated
Left behind with broken plans
Commitment burning on my hand
Quickly slipping through quicksand
I’m doing all I can
Crashing down, waves of self doubt
Missing what can’t I live without,
Idolatry, I’m too devout, but
There’s nothing left to shout

The chasm grows wider filled with unspoken hopes
Life imitates art with its clichés and tropes
While you seize yours and I’ve lost all hope for mine
You open the gates while I covet the ethereal divine

Open my eyes dreading the day
It won’t burn and purge away
So many unspoken things to say
But I can’t run away
Track Name: Kickflip
I can’t kickflip, I can’t grind
But if I don’t skate I’ll lose my mind
Drop in sketchy, kickturn a bowl
An ollie a day is my goal
Road rashed elbows like raw meat
From hitting pebbles in the street
Powerslide till my wheels are ash
Follow every shuvit with a crash

Fractured forearms and broken hips
There will never be enough trick tips
We won’t be banished to the banks
We’ll boneless till we’ve got empty tanks
Ten years in, skate like a newborn
But we won’t be put down by your scorn
Making up tricks every day is the
Only chance for us to get away with our
PRIDE
Track Name: Bone Prison
impact
bite the pain
i know not what I've just done
time moves
fluids build up
and flesh expands
electromagnetic rays collide with calcified collateral damage Condemned to sleep
I'm going under
awaken shaking pruritic plaster
my flesh is encased in my muscles are wasting away
as I do the same
I can't escape the
damage is done
i'll never be free
from this bone prison
Track Name: FYFYDDD
You think you're tough for punching cops
You're the reason they exist
To keep the general public safe
From sad-sack pieces of shit like you
You're the one who started it
You're the one who pushed to far
You crossed the line of duty
And forced a cop to do his job
Track Name: I've Felt Like a God
I’ve forced myself to the conclusion
I’m blinded by my own delusion
This isolation is turning me upside down
This desolation has turned my insides out

If this all leads to you how can this be wrong
But if it hurts me this much how can it be right
The night is darkest before dawn but there’s
No salvation, no guiding light

I’ve felt like a god and I’ve felt like dirt
How can I move on when I always feel the hurt
The lights burn out, I sit alone and
Feel it crush me to the bone
Track Name: Solidarity
When your burdens crush you under their weight
Find your strength within your hate
Break away at what’s inside
Don’t let your demons run and hide
Obsessive thoughts run your life
Possessive fears cut like a knife
But there’s more than one way out
Clench your fists, scream and shout

The world gets darker every day
But do what you want and mean what you say
Cause those that mind don’t matter
And those that matter don’t mind
When you’ve broke and you can’t find
A way to put it all behind
Don’t give a fuck about posterity
We are here in solidarity

Feed the flame, keep it alive
When the world is cold, know you’ll survive
Your burning rage is not alone
Up here you won’t be outshone
Live it hard in every way
Fuck you, I won’t die today
Fix your grip and take control
Rule your mind, your body and soul

The world gets darker every day
But do what you want and mean what you say
Cause those that mind don’t matter
And those that matter don’t mind
When you’ve broke and you can’t find
A way to put it all behind
Don’t give a fuck about posterity
We are here in solidarity

The world gets darker every day
But do what you want and mean what you say
Cause those that mind don’t matter
And those that matter don’t mind
When you’ve broke and you can’t find
A way to put it all behind
Don’t give a fuck about posterity
We are here in solidarity
