Song 1

Prepare for the worst and hope for the best is what I’ve always been told, but excuse me for not having faith in a country full of lost and broken souls. Don’t tell me that things aren’t as bad as they seem. Has mankind gone too far to be redeemed? Are we all doomed? So called democracy is based on false promises. Barely anyone taking notice of what this way of life has cost us. The rich get richer and the poor turn a blind eye without any protest. Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one who isn’t possessed. Is this the end? This planet is now a blackhole, sucking the life out of the weak, making it seem wrong to be a part of anything that is unique. The Government is full of corrupt elects that view you as nothing more than society’s rejects. This is a war cry and we will not retreat, we’re sick of being lied to just so you can get your seat. I watch your house crumble beneath your own two feet, because you never could practice what you preach. Your Government doesn’t care about you. It doesn’t care about me. They destroyed our future and left us with the debris.

Song 3

Backstabbers, liars, cheats and fools. They've always been jealous cause I don't play by their rules. Enemies and fair-weather friends, an integral part of what will fuel me till the end. On my terms. Heart pumps blood but my body runs on hate. I've always felt most alive when I've been irate. I am enthralled with the things that make my blood curdle and make my skin crawl. Respect if you challenge me even without accord, but I have no respect for cowards. Hiding behind the mask of anonymity. Are you really that afraid of me? Afraid of saying something that you can't later deny. The words you speak aren't good enough to stand by.

Truly Alone?

I know them, I know them all too well, my biggest flaws that I cling to as an excuse to stay miserable at any cost. The over-talked about, cliched thoughts of being afraid to lose when I'm without a crutch or a single excuse. There's ten thousand tons of pressure that is crushing my soul from the secrets I have that can never be told. Ten thousand tons of pressure is weighing on my mind, I'm lying when you ask me how I am and I just say "fine". I'm trapped. I'm trapped. I'm trapped of my own free will. I'm trapped. I'm trapped. I'm trapped by the promises I can't fulfill. I'm sick of keeping my demons, like dogs on a leash, whispering fear into my ears and spreading their disease. They keep dragging me along but I just can't let go because I might end up, truly alone.

Government

Everytime I open my eyes I see the things I cannot change.
Everytime I close my eyes I pray these things won't stay the same.
Do I now only view hope as if it were a dream?
Has mankind gone too far to be redeemed?
So called democracy is based on lies and false promises.
Barely anyone taking notice of what this way of life has cost us.
The rich get richer and the poor turn a blind eye without any protest.
Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who isn't possessed.
This planet is now a blackhole, sucking the life out of the weak.
Making it seem wrong to be apart of anything that is unique.
Your Government is full of corrupt elects.
They view you as nothing more than society's rejects.
The Government doesn't care about you.
The Government doesn't care about me.
You need to understand that.
Or you'll never be truly free.

Choice

Backstabbers, liars, cheats and fools. They've always been jealous because I don't play by their rules. Enemies and fair-weather friends are an integral part of what will fuel me until the end. Heart pumps blood but my body runs on hate. I feel most alive when I am irate. I am enthralled with the things that make my blood curdle and make my skin crawl. I have respect for those who disagree or challenge me, with or without accord, but I have no respect for you because you're a coward. Hiding behind the mask of anonymity. Coward. Are you really that afraid of me? Coward. Afraid of saying something that you can't later deny. Coward. The words you speak aren't good enough to stand by. Coward.

January

Winter came late but that was fine by me, on those days it seemed like the world stood still and that was the first time I truly felt free. The ground crunched beneath my feet as I walked long distances on the toxin free streets. Waving to friends we'd never met is something I'll never forget. I was stranded in freedom for awhile and I couldn't help but smile because during these days there were no slaves and we weren't bound to anything except our fellow man. I wanted it to stay like that forever but eventually everything is severed. It left just as it came, so unexpectedly. Cast back to this meaningless journey full of hate and forced responsibility. Everyone was released into their familiar shackles. Once again, putting up their guard and raising their hackles. Walking as little as possible in polluted air, passing strangers, exchanging empty stares. Winter came late but that didn't change anything, on those days it seemed like the world stood still and that was the first time I wish I felt nothing.
