Track Name: Failure To All Justice To None
Ashes will forever fall from the sky
The bodies the rubble in wire entwined
The towers have toppled, the forests have burned
A life has forsaken, no earthly concern
Al that once was was gone in a flash
Hatred, torture, violence, all in the past
Nothingness in the end.

We all foresaw the day
Yet they fueled the flames
Our bones now rest beneath eternal grey
Ages of murder done
Wars neither lost or won
Failure to all, justice to none.

Filth in our veins, no hope to feel
Peace was a dream for the crooked to steal
No say to give, no choice to make
Our lives in our homes, nothing but theirs to take
But if this end was the only release
From the blood drawn borders
Corruption and plague in the streets
Then in death I lay content

We all foresaw the day
Yet they fueled the flames
Our bones now rest beneath eternal grey
Ages of murder done
Wars neither lost or won
Failure to all, justice to none.
Track Name: To Live In Hell
Hear the creak in the kitchen floor
From the mice in the old punk wood
The rot is spreading under every door
And the flies are fattened good
Every leak in every faucet's like dropping bombs
Getting louder every god damn day
But you can't afford to leave cuz you're broke as fuck
And there's no where else to stay

The ceiling is caving in
From the holes in the patchy roof
The cockroaches are settlin' in
And the mold is everywhere you look
The air conditioner's broke and the heat is a joke
every winter's colder than the last
so round up your pennies and your nickels and dimes
Cuz we're all paying out the ass

Fall, Falling down
And blindly pay to live in hell
Fall to the ground
Shambles for coin
Fall, Falling down
And blindly pay to live in hell
Fall six feet down to live in hell

With frost in our hearts
And fire in our eyes
We'll tear down this house
One brick at a time
There's more to this life
Than pennies, nickels and dimes
Slumlords will suck you dry
'til you die
Track Name: Earth Infanticide
'neath darkening skies I hear the knell in the land where the demons dwell
For no longer we will saunter the land where angels fell
The seas will rise and the trees will grow to choke out all that speak
Like the mother that devours her young born helpless blind and weak
Awaken to quell

Pay no head to the warnings of the ages
Our own kind kept our minds locked in cages
Consumed we will be

With open arms I'll greet the storm and exhale my last breath
Relieved at peace content in death mother lay us to rest
Earth Infanticide

God forsaken land must be taken no remorse for the meek
A much needed end our mothers revenge upon our sins will creep
Hardened our hearts our actions stark in the raping of our own
No aiding friend no consequence bend concurrently die alone
Awaken to quell

The weight of the world to crush the spine of man
Plagued our blood from the day our age began
Consumed we will be

Hot on our backs are the winds of death as buildings crumble and burn
Rejected by the mother of all our demise we discern
Soon we will all be nothing but ashes in the wake
Fools to believe that we were anything but hers to take
Earth Infanticide

Relieved at peace content in death mother lay us to rest
Infanticide
Track Name: Laundry Day
The smell I omit could make you commit suicide
The fumes of a thousand farts filling your cold and blackened eyes
"Take a shower or at least take a bath,
If you don't take this soap I'll shove it straight up your ass"
Tell someone who cares, I'm not going anywhere

The smell I omit could make you commit homicide
An odor of death that lingers for life and repels everything in sight
"Wash your clothes, wash out your hair,
There's dirt on your knuckles and flies everywhere"
If you don't like me that's fine
Just don't waste my time

Cuz I ran out of clean pants again but i'll never ever do the laundry
Ran out of T-shirts again but i'll never ever do the laundry
Ran out of tube socks again but i'll never ever do the laundry
Ran out of undies again but i'll never ever do the laundry
Never again
Track Name: 33 Shots
Oh so deep within there lives a devil haunting all my thoughts
Waging his war conquering all he leaves my mind in knots
Shivering in heat on the battlefield reminds me of what I'm not
Reloading his gun he's about to roar off 33 more shots
33 shots

Constant chaos reaking havoc on all I call my own
Tired and weary reaping the dealings 33 has sown
My memories are dead head constantly fed by the poison that he's brought
Reloading his gun he's about the roar off 33 more shots
33 shots

Day after day consuming me myself ceases to be
In his grasp I can't escape the hold of 33
Hanging right in front of me by a thread dangles the key
Weak my arms struggle to reach the freedom that I seek

So take me to my grave because there's nothing for me to save
From the cliff I dived was the path I chose to take
For long ago I died
My body only endures time
All there is left are the chains he's set on you
Break them soon
Track Name: When It's Gone
What can we say, this day and age
It all just blends into a blur and subtle haze
Cuz every day is weed and booze and cigarettes
While we're listening to tunes on old cassettes
And as the days turn into years you realize
That the best days of your life are before your eyes
Cuz every day is speed and blow and cigarettes
It's safe to say I love you so with no regrets

And as we wander down the street drunk as fuck
Break a couple lousy laws for a couple bucks
Run away from the police and reconvene
Underneath the Stewart bridge to be unseen
Make a stop at Innersleeve to visit Mike
Buy some records that you love and some you like
Take 'em home and put them on to listen to
And erase away the stress that is holding you

And in spite of all its flaws
This town is burning down
And we'll dance on its ashes when it's gone

Take a trip down to The Stank to see a show
With all the local bands that you love and know
And others that have traveled far and few between
Just to watch them play a set that you've never seen
And after that it's to the bar to get fucked up
Golden delicious PBR will fill our cups
Falling from our seats we'll laugh and cause a scene
While the bitter sober prudes call us obscene

What can we say, this day and age
It all just blends into a blur and subtle haze
Cuz every day is weed and booze and cigarettes
While we're listening to tunes on old cassettes
And as the days turn into years you realize
That the best days of your life are before your eyes
Cuz every day is speed and blow and cigarettes
It's safe to say I love you so with no regrets
No regrets at all
Track Name: Radio
I think I'm going insane living in this neighborhood
From all the old and estranged that never leave their homes
Pale faces never seen sunlight Church goers up before the 1st light
All your kids got class in the morning
Repetition's chained you tight
But I don't even care
All your silence brings despair

Radio I've come to take you away to a place with stereo
A place where we don't give a shit if the neighbors piss and moan
Call the the cops, we got locks, they can't kick down our doors
They've come to take you away

I think I'm going insane living in this fucking town
From all the people I hate, Idiocracy surrounds
Working your 9to5 doesn't mean a god damn thing
Just because you don't enjoy life doesn't mean you shouldn't let me
But I don't even care
All your silence brings despair

For all the times you wanted silence
We turned it up just one more notch
You're fools to believe the law
Disturb the peace, disturb the cause
We're a dying breed
Don't feed the flames they need
Track Name: Wolves II
The days are growing shorter and the nights are growing cold
The leaves are all but dying as the chill of winter grows
The tale to you we tell is one of angst and fear
Of hunters and of howling and of gnashing blood and sneers
When the moon is highest there'll be a deafening sound
To call upon and awaken ancient prey under the ground
The air with fill with snarls and howls from the peaks
United all across the earth lycans await the feast

No mercy given no mercy shown
This night is not but theirs
There is no breathing beast that will be spared
The fields will turn a red
And the forest into a grave
There is no god to call upon to save

From the hunt we must run
Under the lycan moon mothers will weep
We all long and pray for dawn
On the bloodiest night even the strong are sheep

Frantic minds dissolve and all struggle to flee
Rampant the wolven terror spreads vastly like a disease
They'll never have their fill, they'll never quench their thirst
'till ancient prey of old or new rot back into the earth
Why must the innocent fall in our brothers blood we bathe
If no god answers the call then to whom do we pray
These questions I do ask in the hour were slain

The moon and the sky appears to be red in the mist of our blood in the air
And the whiteness of fangs is all I can see as I fall into darkness

An earth controlled by fear a core of hate and greed
All spinning on an axis stable as the tempered seas
Rigged is the game we play our struggle fuels the machine
That soon will consume all of us abandon your hopes and dreams
Track Name: Plastic Vanity
New car, new clothes, they even got the crease in their kenneth coles
From head to toe they're only drowning in their egos
As the sluts strut by all I wanna do is fucking die
A designer dress that's designed to impress dull minds

A whole new face for a wad of money
But identities could never be bought nor sold
So sell your face for some dignity
A life a misery that is painted in your fools gold

So why do we worship their worthless surreal life
They are not even real
Their silicon smiles will never go for miles
But they'll spread it all around like a disease of plastic vanity

Every billboard sign is vandalized with who you're supposed to be
From jewelry to jokes tantalizing for all who see
From magazines to flat screens I wanna die all over again
A designer life that's designed to just pretend

Your brand new things won't keep you company
When all your fascist friends leave you to rot in your new suite
So find yourself a brand new family
One that doesn't revolve around your rapacity

We're drowning
We're flailing
We're falling again
This planet is dying
Dissolving from greed
I hate you
You people
I hate the entire human race
Conceded, Defeated
But you can't get grin off of your face
Track Name: Cessation of the Sovereign
The ill winds of winter exceed my walls
The reapings of autumn to rot in their halls
The coming of summer a season to slave
To famish and toil in fields I have made
I am the sower of harvest you take
The hearts of my children in beggary ache
Our wounds are not mended and worsen in age
Our loyalty descends as surfaces rage

Never again will we bow to thee
While we wallow in poverty
Our voices one curse fealty
Your reign unjust

We are the dawn and the dusk of a day
Sufferers of stone at a penniless wage
The laws of your court have been written in our blood
Our bones make the throne upon which you sit
Hoarder of cures when we are the sick
Soon your dissolution will be at hand
Abolish the crowned

We are the weapon that conquers your foes
Currency of blood spent in the snow
No more will we swallow the elixir of lies
No more will we forfeit what is ours by right
We are the dread in your eyes as you all
The hour has come for the kingly to crawl
No remorse for those who dwell in your halls
Our numbers united to slaughter you all

The sovereign burn them down
Regicide
