Track Name: Bite Back
Yes, this is a media blitz
The axe is coming and we're on the list
They don't burn books, no one reads anyway
They program the networks and it's underway
If they control the news, they control the views
If we can't disagree, it's a monopoly
If we speak up, they'll try to silence us
But it's no use, we know the truth

They victimize us and steal our voice
With no alternatives, they leave us no choice
But, when black meets black, we'll bite back

Money talks and we don't make a sound
Boost the profits and cut us down
We're too busy entertained all the time
To see them behind our backs robbing us blind
Just a new scapegoat to bestow the blame
They change the name, but the story's the same
They spread terror and expect obedience
But it's no use, we know the truth

They victimize us and steal our voice
With no alternatives, they leave us no choice
But, when black meets black, we will bite back
Track Name: Backlash
I've been around the block, I've heard all the talk
No guilty conscious, just empty promises
We expect a change, but embrace the same
When we finally come to realize, we'll be looking for the one to blame

Brace for the backlash
That's when we make our attack
The lesser of two evils isn't a choice
Repeating what they say isn't a voice
Bigger cages, longer chains
No longer satisfied with minor gains
Brace for the backlash
You'd better watch your back

I wish they'd left us with a choice, another way
But, I can feel the grip around our necks tighten everyday
Cut the funding, fuck the poor, war isn't free
And when things really get bad, we'll just blame the enemy

No one votes, they just complain
And we're stuck with the same problems again
Yes, all power is corrupt
Unless we make a real change, we're fucked
Track Name: I Don't Believe
I refuse to accept that we're born inept
And part of some larger scheme
Every woman and man, part of a plan
For all of eternity

It just doesn't make sense to me
So no, I don't believe

In my eyes it's all a guise
Made to control and deceive
We're just piles of blood and bile
That crawled out of the sea

Fear the wrath of a holy ghost? I'll take the risk
I lack the faith, you lack the evidence
Structured and confined by a man-made design
You're a slave to your own mind, dumb deaf and blind
Track Name: Drown Me
It seems like life is just passing me by
I'm looking forward, but falling behind
I'm trying my best just to get ahead
But, I'm doomed to tread water until I'm dead

Just another day of keeping up with the pace
But, It still seems like I'm losing the race
I'm doing the best with what I have
But the weight on my shoulders is pushing me down

I'm stuck on repeat with no end in sight
I'm trudging on, but losing the fight
I can't let life keep pulling me down
With no grip on the surface I can only drown

I can't seem to stay afloat
I open my mouth to breathe and water fill my throat
My limbs go limp, I'm losing control
The weight of the world is crushing my soul
Heavy fucking soul
Track Name: Life Sentence
Tearing skin, it's digging in
Filled with doubt from the inside out
Is it modesty or dishonesty?
To always question myself
In my mind, I'm doing time
Restitution for my crimes

Crippled by doubt, shamed by what we lack
Like adding more weight to our broken backs
I pull free and find
Room to breathe, but I'm
Still serving
A life sentence

Tearing skin, it's digging in
Filled with doubt from the inside out
Is it modesty or dishonesty?
To always question myself
In my mind, I'm doing time
Restitution for my crimes
Internment is time well spent
In solitary confinement

I want so much, to have the answers, but I don't
What I know is all I know
They'd like so much to meet, the expectations, but I won't
What I have is all I have
They'd like me to be, what they'd like to be, but I can't
What I am is what I am
Track Name: Don't Slow Down
I've got the heat of the sun beating down on me
And I can feel the humble ground crack beneath my feet
I still clench my fists and grit my teeth
I won't accept the symptoms, won't embrace the disease

Some scars heal, but I won't forget
And even now, I'm just as pissed
Yes I'm older, but still realize that
I won't let it dim, won't let it die, because I

Won't slow down, won't slow down

Don't forget the meaning and how it began
But most of all don't, don't let it end

Don't slow down, don't slow down (x2)

Don't slow down, don't slow down
This is the path of resistance paved on hallowed ground
If you look through the feedback and fucked up sound
There's still more room for something profound
Veer off the path to avoid a repeat
Trudge new depths before I admit defeat
Track Name: An Excuse
You'd be hard pressed to find some meaning
When no one thinks it's worth it
You're not telling the truth, you're living an excuse

We're only as weak as the sum of our parts
And trust me, we're falling apart
Why should I write if no one reads?
It's not a sacrifice if no one bleeds

What happened to the good old days? You pissed them away
Are you tired of the same old shit? Then why don't you change.
