Track Name: Underhill
I have seen the dead under the hill
Looking up at me with bloody eyes
And they come all night
Yeah, they come all night

I have been a voice for many reasons
But now I see the truth lies with the dead

They come all night
Yeah, they come all night

I have lived a life without a purpose
And I have been a pawn for truth and lies

They come all night
Yeah, they come all night

One of self without devotion
One more strand to cut and set me free

Up and out from far away
To where I bled for truth decay
And I won’t see thee anymore
Until we meet under the hill
Track Name: Hangman
I was born to lose so hard it isn’t funny
I never had a friend because a friend is just an enemy waiting to happen
I don’t care anymore
I’ve been beaten down so many times
I’m getting comfy on the floor
I wipe the blood off and I take my meds
‘Cause without them I’d be curled up under my bed
One night, when the feeling’s right
I’m gonna climb it up and hang it out

I don’t want salvation
I just want to be alone
Nothing here is sacred
I don’t live here anymore

There’s nobody I hate in this world more than myself
But there are those who’ve been managing to come pretty goddamn close
So if you’re looking for somebody’s day to ruin, I’ve got nothing to lose and it’s a very good day to die
‘Cause I’m tired of trying and lying
And pretending that everything’s okay and I’m not gonna kill
It plays like a movie in my head
I see me take ‘em out

I don’t want salvation
I just want to be alone
Nothing here is sacred
I don’t live here anymore
I don’t want protection
I just want to speak some goddamn truth
And I don’t need you
I’m already in the noose

Hell before me and behind
Hell to hold me
Hell so kind

I don’t want salvation
I just want to be alone
Nothing here is sacred
I don’t live here anymore
I don’t want protection
I just want to speak some goddamn truth
And I don’t need you
I’m already in the noose
Track Name: Underdogs
Out as far as the dust has blown
The underdog who stands alone
He’s a broken prophet seeking no refuge from his war
Abandon, complete, without compassion
As he walks away from the world
Away from our reach

The pain of no love prevails
The pain of no love is crushing
Deep inside the heart of a good man
The pain of the world has killed

So we stand for the dead
For the forgotten
For the tortured true that we never knew
And we’ll live with a purpose, united
Just to destroy like no other before that has fallen
A society that is built on greed
We ain’t ever turning back
Fuck you

Yeah when push comes to shove, I’m a mother fucking tank
In pursuit, fucking hot
Covered in blood, I’m a shank
Sinking in to the bone
Gonna bring the pain on
Make ‘em die in the mud
Now the pigs are fucking gone

Bring the battle on
Bring the battle on and on and...
Bring the battle on
Bring the battle on and on and on

So we stand
So we see the lies
We count the lives we’ve lost

So we stand for the dead
For the forgotten
For the tortured true that we never knew
And we’ll live with a purpose, united
Just to destroy like no other before that has fallen
Your society that is built on greed
We ain’t ever turning back
Fuck you
Track Name: As It Is
One blurry moment
One chance to get it right
Concentration, impossible to achieve
A hand reaches out and grabs me

Barely afloat and I’m caught in the rope that was thrown out half-assed on a prayer
Let me sink down
Way down under

Don’t know if I’ll ever make it over there
Don’t wanna know if I’ll be here tomorrow

Stitches and dives
You know you’re alive when pain is all you feel
When I’ve been scrapped, I get my boots strapped on for the road ahead goes on for now
No matter what it is now, everything is going to be alright

From angst to apathy
Self-loathing homicidal rage
I’ve gripped so tight my hands are bleeding

Lobotomy would make me feel alright

Last place in competition
I’ve got no ambition to make it in your world
Your design is fundamentally screwed
A month on the streets would do you good

Stitches and dives
You know you’re alive when pain is all you feel
When I’ve been scrapped, I get my boots strapped on for the road ahead goes on for now
No matter what it is now, everything is going to be alright
Though I may never understand
Let me go
Let me down
Let me fall to the ground

I will rise
I will rise
No comprehension for failure, no compromise
As sure as the sun in the sky
Track Name: Solution
The belly of the beast is large in dying colour
With the two-tone grey to blackness in the hearts
Of the folks without a hope to keep them helpless
It’s a state of mind and safety for the precious business

Keep us down, the prime directive
Everybody stays paralyzed by fear
There won’t be any problems
You and I could be a fucking problem
With the strength of mind over matter
Lay it down for freedom

Lay that new solution down
Lay that new solution on me
I know, as Hell unfolds, we’re gonna need your help

Melee on the floor, you’d think somebody just dropped a quarter
People shoving, people pushing buttons making bombs rain down
Terminator, cold container, full of brains, skyscraper
Ambition to gain too much is way too much but everybody wants one too

I want one too
Everybody’s got one and I want one too
The monkey little children wearing suits
It should be cute, but all I wanna do is string ‘em up and decorate a new procession

Lay that new solution down
Lay that new solution on me
I know, as Hell unfolds, we’re gonna need your help
Lay that new solution down
Lay your new solution on me
I know, it’s solid gold
That check don’t fucking bounce

There's no hope at all if you don't believe in me
There's no hope in Hell if I don't have faith in you
It's nothing but a man made machine
It can be broken down
I believe in you
If you believe in me then let's get started

Lay that new solution down
Lay that new solution on me
I know, as Hell unfolds, we’re gonna need your help
Lay that new solution down
Lay your new solution on me
I know, it’s solid gold
That check don’t fucking bounce
Track Name: White Lightning
Operation: incognito
On the front porch and back behind the shed
No move was mistaken
Hell libido, moistened egos
Touching fronts that blended to nowhere
But outside the bedroom...

White lightning, light striking
White lightning
Still frightening until it comes
Then it’s gone forever

Infiltration, bog mosquitos, poison oak
And all the while we laughed like gas tanks exploding
Smooth destruction, red-light pastures
Our hearts soared the night we never said a word like ‘tomorrow’

White lightning, light striking
White lightning
Still frightening until it comes
Then it’s gone forever

Out the window, down the old pine
No second best ever got me gone so fast
As if by miracle...

White lightning, light striking
White lightning
Still frightening until it comes
Then it’s gone forever
Track Name: O.F.D.
When I was young, I would sit in the sun
I’d be thinking and dreaming the whole day away
Now I just lay in the cracks of a world where the high and the mighty took my sun away

Rise into the streets, fuckers
Ride into the Armageddon

‘Cause I’ve got a bat and a heart full with anger
I know that ain’t much but it’s all that I’ve got

Fuck this arrogant high-society
Fuck the government with anarchy
Fuck the cost of living
Fuck all the bane of the working poor

Something for nothing, I’ve seen once or twice
But nothing for everything is more like it is
Good people falling in deeper
The Reaper is calling and he’s coming right to your door

We’ll fight and fight and won’t stop fighting
We’ll claw and bite ‘til they run to the hills

When we get together, no matter the weather
We’ll bring more of hell than these Fascists can take

Get this shit down right fuckers
These are our human rights mother fuckers
Rise up and prepare to stand against the fucking pigs who’ve taken

All that they can but the power’s in our hands
I can’t wait to stand with you on Our Freedom Day
Track Name: Calculations
Repetition and devotion
It takes strength to carry on this way
In the face of such a power
We get shot down for the slightest twitch
In the gutters, ‘round the towers
There’s been talk of revolution
In the gutters, ‘round the towers
There’s been talk of rising up to...

Freedom for the people meaning nothing left to lose
Now we have had enough and so it’s time that we assume
A battery, full charge
Strangle at the roots
Bring ‘em down, bring ’em down
Tear their fucking system to the ground
And then we’ll rebuild again

Calculations, in a plan to, in a plot to bury our masters
Invitation, participation will be rewarded with death
And the knowledge of a contribution to the lonely and the nameless ones
I’m a ghost in observation
We’re the demons rising up to...

Freedom for the people meaning nothing left to lose
Now we have had enough and so it’s time that we assume
A battery, full charge
Strangle at the roots
Bring ‘em down, bring ’em down
Tear their fucking system to the ground
And then we’ll rebuild again
Track Name: I Want Your Blood
Trying to spit it out, to spit it out
The poison won’t forgive me
To spit it out, to spit it out
But it got into my brain hole
Now everything seems different
No time, no time
Forgiveness dies and hate that was internalized now takes control

I’m a bully, I’m a train
I want your blood
Like an eagle in the sky
I want your blood
Like chewing on a steak
I want your blood
Something awful in my mind
I want your blood

Throwing my love to the wind under pressure, pressure
Making out to feel it again under pressure, pressure
Planning to engage in the night under lovely darkness
You’re the reason and the pleasure that I must take you

I’m a bully, I’m a train
I want your blood
Like an eagle in the sky
I want your blood
Like chewing on a steak
I want your blood
Something awful in my mind
I want your blood

Soft fingers lose hold of my jacket, the leather warms
As your life runs down and pools around my boots
Your eyes meet mine for a moment
And it is in this moment that I long to live in
And it is gone forever

It’s gone forever
Withdraw, withdraw
I’ve grown so cold now
There is no turning back

I’m a bully, I’m a train
I want your blood
Like an eagle in the sky
I want your blood
Like chewing on a steak
I want your blood
Something awful in my mind
I want your blood
I am the hollow of the night
I want your blood
More the victim than your soul
I want your blood
When I look into your eyes
I want your blood
In that moment I’m at peace
Track Name: The Garden
Hey navigator, you've fucked up again
I think we're in trouble and the bugs are closing in
Operator, just give me a sign
The sky has gone malignant and I fear that I'm losing touch
I wanna get out, I wanna believe that everything I see here is just an illusion
The signal has crossed the axis, there's no return
The lights are blinking red
And now I know the ship is going down forever

The garden is nice
I kick back and think about our destruction
I close my eyes
The sun is warm on my skin and I'm smoking
From up the street, I hear a tune that takes me back to a troubled youth
That was better than today where I say...

Stop, then run again, along the alley shadows
My fingers fumble for that thing, that thing I need, oh fuck, I lost it
Mayday, mayday
I'm starting to descend
I didn't do it good enough
They said I wasn't good enough
Now I'm in the shit again
The worms are closing in on me
They want to get inside and fortify my indoctrination
Doctor, doctor
There's something in my head
Please get it out, please take it out
It wants to fucking see me die forever

The garden is nice
I kick back and think about our destruction
I close my eyes
The sun is warm on my skin and I'm smoking
From up the street, I hear a tune that takes me back to a troubled youth
That was better than today where I say die

Is this even real?
The weeds and vines that now cover the place where I once contemplated the possibility of happiness

Put me in a body bag
Fill it up with lye
Put me in a body bag
Leave me here to die

The garden is nice
I kick back and think about our destruction
I close my eyes
The sun is warm on my skin and I'm smoking
From up the street, I hear a tune that takes me back to a troubled youth
That was better than today where I say fucking die
Track Name: Wake
The sun is up and someone’s crying
And suddenly I can’t stop laughing for all the stupid looks I get
You give me this one
I guess it’s the best this moment has to offer
I can’t say I’ll remember it

Whenever the cannonball blows, I’ll follow in its wake
Until the day I die and cherish my mistakes
Nothing here is mine and I don’t wanna take
I never lit the fuse
Just follow in the wake

There’s a lot of confusion going ‘round
But if I think, I sink
I’m not gonna drown with you
I’d rather burn alone
Morning comes too fast
But I won’t wake you up ‘cause I don’t wanna know the pain I’m leaving

Whenever the cannonball blows, I’ll follow in its wake
Until the day I die and cherish my mistakes
Nothing here is mine and I don’t wanna take
I never lit the fuse
Just follow in the wake
The cannonball blows
I’ll follow in the wake
Until the day I die
Track Name: Umbilical
How did it get so cold
How did it get forgotten
From a stream of gold to a field of rotten

How did it get so lost
When did it turn so silent
Through the days so dark
How did we seem so calm inside the violence

For what’s wrong
For that feeling
For the present, unbearable
For the cost
For the blood thrown to the soil
For everything
For the loss
For the blackness
End in silence, in empty...

Hung the new door up
Mud the walls with care
Blew the roof right off
Took the lion’s share
Red and yellow torn
Under fractured heat
On the window sill
Parasites are feeding on a dead gift

For what’s wrong
For that feeling
For the present, unbearable
For the cost
For the blood thrown to the soil
For everything
For the loss
For the blackness
End in silence, in empty...

Once umbilical, now I wonder what will become of this regrettable, awful scene
Slow motion explosion
You’re the only one that I ever thought might have the key
Through this field, I will sink under
Remembering the truth

Close these eyes, they’ve seen too much to hold on to this life without love
