Track Name: ALONE
I USED TO BELIEVE IN THE SCENE
IN BONDS OF BROTHERHOOD AND UNITY
UNTIL THEY TOLD ME WHAT TO DO
HOW TO THINK AND WHO TO BE

I’D RATHER BE ALL ALONE
THAN BOW BEFORE YOUR GOLDEN THRONE

I WON’T FIGHT FOR YOUR CAUSE
OR HELP TO IMPOSE YOUR BULLSHIT LAWS
I WON’T SEEK ACCEPTANCE AMONGST THE FOOLS
MY LIFE MY LIFE MY LIFE MY RULES

I DON’T NEED YOUR VALIDATION
STANDING HARD ON MY OWN FOUNDATION

YOU’RE ALWAYS SHAKING HANDS AND PLAYING NICE
YOU’VE GOT MORE FACES THAN A PAIR OF SIX-SIDED DICE

YOUR DOGMA DOESN’T MEAN SHIT TO ME
MY VIEW OF THE WORLD, IT’S BEEN SET FREE
DISCOVER, EXPLORE, AND FINDING MY OWN WAY
NO LONGER TRAPPED IN A PATTERN OF DECAY
Track Name: HOLDING STRONG
BEYOND WORDS, SYMBOLS, OR SLOGANS
IT’S A BREATH OF AIR IN A WORLD THAT’S CHOKING
AN INNER STRENGTH THAT’S BEEN AWOKEN
WE’RE LIVING PROOF OF WORDS ONCE SPOKEN

THE WATCH ON MY WRIST KEEPS TICKING ON
AND THE INK ON MY FIST IS STILL HOLDING STRONG
I’VE MADE MY CHOICE YEAR AFTER YEAR
NO BOOZE NO DRUGS I KEEP IT CLEAR

HOLDING STRONG

BEING CLEAR MINDED ISN’T IN FASHION TODAY
DRINK DRINK DRINK IT’S THE ONLY WAY
TO SIMPLY ABSTAIN IS TO OFFEND
WHEN’S THIS SHIT GONNA END?

THE WEAK FALL BEHIND
THE STRONG CARRY ON
WE’RE HOLDING STRONG
EXTREMISM FEELS RIGHT TO US
STRAIGHT EDGE, WE’VE GOT THE GUTS
Track Name: LIVE FREE
IT’S NOT ABOUT RULES OR RESTRICTIONS
IT’S NOT SOME CURE-ALL PRESCRIPTION
IT’S A WAY OF LIFE, LIVING SHARP AS A KNIFE
FREE FROM THE PAINS OF ADDICTION

FREE TO LIVE, FREE TO BREATHE
FREE FROM BOOZE (DRUGS) AND THOSE WHO STIFLE ME
SEEING CLEAR, THINKING STRAIGHT
CHOOSING FREEDOM BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE

LIVE FREE OR DIE

IT’S NOT ABOUT FEELING SUPERIOR
IT’S NOT ABOUT LIVING WITH HATE
IN A CLOUDY ROOM FULL OF SUBMISSION
I JUST CAN’T RELATE
Track Name: STOMP
IF YOU WANNA GET DUMB
I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR AN EXCUSE
YOU PICKED THE WRONG GUY
I WON’T TAKE YOUR ABUSE

MY FEET STAND
WHERE I LEARNED TO RUN
REMIND ME AGAIN
WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU FROM?

CAN YOU FEEL IT (IT’S COMING)
THE VIOLENCE

TALK CAN’T PROTECT YOU
WHEN YOU’RE ALL ALONE
YOU’VE BEEN ACTING HARD
BUT YOUR COVER’S BLOWN

YOU THINK YOU’RE SAFE?
I’LL EAT YOUR HEART
ONE WRONG MOVE
WE’RE GONNA TEAR YOU APART
Track Name: CLEAR A PATH
I CHOSE THIS FIGHT, I’M NOT A HIRED GUN
I STILL BELIEVE IN EVERY WORD WE SUNG
I HAVE A VISION, I’M GONNA MAKE IT TRUE
MOVE ASIDE OR WE’LL STEP ON YOU
THERE’S CRITICS AND CREATORS, BELIEVERS AND HATERS
I’VE CHOSEN MY ROLE, SO HAVE YOU, NOW

CLEAR A PATH, I SAID TO CLEAR A PATH
MOVE OUT OF MY WAY
CLEAR A PATH
Track Name: HARD SELL
INNER PEACE IT CAN’T BE POURED
SO I’M SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING MORE
THAN EMPTY GLASSES AND PROMISES
FROM SUITS IN HIGH-RISE OFFICES

HARD SELL
WE DON’T BUY IT
WE WON’T FALL FOR IT
FUCK OFF


THERE’S NO MONEY IN US GOING AGAINST THE GRAIN
NO PROFITS TO BE MADE IF WE USE OUR BRAINS
YOUR IDEA OF NORMAL DOESN’T MEAN SHIT TO ME
YOU SAY THERE’S VALUE IN ACCEPTANCE BUT I DISAGREE


FORCE FED FROM THE DAY YOUR BORN
MESSAGES ABOUT WHAT TO CALL THE NORM
YOU’VE BEEN LED TO BELIEVE YOU NEED TO BUY TO SUCCEED
BUY YOUR MANHOOD WITH A SIDE OF RELIEF
JUST BUY A DRINK
WE WON’T
WE WON’T
WE WON’T
WE WON’T
WE WON’T
WE WON’T
WE WON’T
FUCK YOU
