Track Name: Hate Combined
Growing old in a town of ghosts
Filled with suicide and overdose
Where they tell you there is no hope
Fighting back at all costs to cope

Residence of selfishness
Suffer the consequence
If you ever forsake this
By jumping ship to fake shit

This is far from paradise
Weed out the weak from snakes and parasites
The perfect place to lose ya life
We stick tight to those prepared to fight
Depressive state of mind
Yet united we re strong with our hate combined

Hate combined

No we re not alone
Make this hell our home

Make this hell our home to stay
Make friends with grief and misery
Loyalty to those who bring solace in tragedy

My friends, My family, They mean the world to me
Fuck you, It’s us for us
I would give my life and it still aint enough
I would never turn my back on you
My heart bleeds gold and blue
Indiana this torch burns bright
Fuck you if you aint down with 219

(Victor’s Solo)
(Jake’s Solo)

Don't you ever forsake this
By jumping ship to fake shit

Hickory Street, 148 North Hammond Bitch
Blurry days takes the life away,
The stench of decay lets you know you’re on the way home
We set the tone for you fools
We’re left alone, we stick together, D4M forever

This is far from paradise
Weed out the weak from snakes and parasites
The perfect place to lose ya life
We stick tight to those prepared to fight
Depressive state of mind
Yet united we re strong with our hate combined
Hate Combined
Track Name: Lockdown
You may have won this time
Shattered bones to be the penance for my crimes
But as my blood seeps through my hands to the pavement below
I'm broken and beaten but never defeated
In due time I'll rise again to reclaim my pride

Where blade meets flesh and steel meets bone
Where beasts are forged and hearts are turned to stone
I've stared into the face of death and it's left me cold

Locked deep inside this penitentiary in my own mind
But I'll soon break these chains and remove the vale that's rendered me blind
So now I'll scrape myself from the concrete and take back my life

(Jake’s solo)
(Victor’s solo)

You'll never defeat me

Broken and beaten but never defeated
Track Name: Recidivist
Hopes buried in
Totalitarian
Skewed points of view

Descending from
Where hate is formed
In a bind where we all lose

We all lose

Relapse into vicious behavior
With no authority
No masters or even a savior
Who could rescue me

Cycles of entrapment
Abused to the extreme
No hope for the lower classes
Ripping open at our seams


A broken system in place
To keep us runnin the same race
A broken system in place
We all run the same fucking race

Recidivist
Where we all lose
Recidivist
No choice to choose

So look around at the shit that they done
You don’t have a brain, but you better carry a gun
My goal is for you to die, and everyone you love will suffer
Mark my words bitch

I don’t want to survive, I know I’m designed for a purpose in life
And if that means sacrificing my life, then so be it
Motherfuckers

No trust
No Chance
For this
Repeated offense

(VIctor’s solo)

Recidivist

(Jake’s solo)
Track Name: Deadworld
There is one thing for certain, Humanity is digging its own early grave, We grow more and more undeserving, Of the beauty that this world once gave, But we keep marching forward, Never knowing if we're truly alive, The slow death of the humane heart, A dead world where love has died, Dead work before my eyes, There is one thing for certain, This world is suffering from human disease, We grow more and more undeserving, Of the air that we breathe, Facing the 6th extinction, Humanity will fall to its knees, It seems we've worn out our welcome, The stigma of this Earth wiped clean, Let the bombs fall from the sky, A dead world, No one survives.
Track Name: Injustice
Justice won't be served
Not in a single place on this fucking earth
Stuck at the bottom since birth
What's freedom really fucking worth?

City officials have turned to destruction
Judicial systems run off corruption
Breeding hate for the lower class
No escape from this crime ridden path

They lock us in cages while they line up their pockets
Lock up my people, for personal profits
Mainstream media is plaguing our minds
Spreading ignorance, Killing my kind

You can't trust this
There's no justice
Freedom's worthless
If you're life aint worth a shit

The police aren't out to serve and protect
They don't deserve an ounce of respect
Fuckin the system with privatized prisons
Raping the poor is this country's tradition

(Jake’s solo)

You can't trust this
There's no justice
Freedoms worthless
If you're life aint worth a shit

Injustice

I pen my destiny within this penitentiary
Righting all my wrongs to show the world what’s left of me
Remnants and scars, no fucking empathy
Behind cold bars, self destructive recipe
No need for felonies when you’re locked up mentally
Tendencies for living helplessly is what it’s meant to be
And there’s still no justice
And you still can’t trust this

(Jake’s solo)
Track Name: Piece of Mind
Take a look at this world
Full of people that only see their despair
Instead of changing their own life
They rather complain on how the world's unfair

So unfair
Fuck their tears

Day to day,
We'll defend ourselves
Fought our battles alone
We don't need your help

We don't need a crutch to lean on
Most too afraid to face their own demons
They rather find somebody else to fiend on

So if it's peace you want.
It won't be peace you get
Here's a piece of mind
You're just a piece of shit

Feed those who fed you when you needed to eat
Those who let you starve get no sympathy
No room for weakness
They cry wolf in the sheep's skin

Solitude, aint nothing new
Isolation feels complacent

(Victor's solo)
(Jake's solo)

So if it's peace you want.
It won't be peace you get
Here's a piece of mind
You're just a piece of shit

Feed those who fed you when you needed to eat
Those who let you starve get no sympathy
No room for weakness
They cry wolf in the sheep's skin

You can't play
Victim
Your whole life
Track Name: Snitch
Show no mercy, No remorse, Fuck forgiveness.
Now you'll feel my force.

No, I won't turn the other cheek
You can lie in the bed that you've made
I won't stand by and accept your deceit
This time you've dug your own grave

No there will never be forgiveness
Nor the company of those that you've deceived
You should never speak of loyalty when there's nothing there

Show no mercy, No remorse, Fuck forgiveness
I'll make you eat your fucking words

I'll sew your goddamned mouth so you'll no longer sew deceptive seeds
There is no weight to the words that you speak when you bite down on the hand that feeds

With such eager hands you've paved your path to hell
But you'll find no refuge in the secrets that you tell
6 ft beneath the dirt will be your cell

(Jake’s solo)

Show no mercy, No remorse, Fuck forgiveness
Track Name: Divert and Divide
Bread and circuses
We're bred in worthlessness
Racist agendas
Focused and centered

No matter where you're from
Those in power are scum
What's freedom
When you're livin in slums

This revenue aint nothing new
They'll murder for their point of view
Cause money’s more important than you

They divide us by our skin
They divide us by our sins
They divide us by our wealth
They divide us by our age and health


Afraid of us all, because their fear doesn't end their black skin
Cowards dressed in costumes, acting on impulse
They make their own rules
Shoot first, ask questions never
They fuckin kill but it’s never a murder
Intimidate us, Bully and beat us but why?
This world is just fucked

Innocent people murdered
While their killers patrol the streets
As long as they're sworn to protect and serve the interests of the elite

If there is no justice
Can they ever rest in peace
Fascists lie while the innocent die
Motherfuck the racist police

Innocent people murdered
While their killers patrol the streets
As long as they're sworn to protect and serve the interests of the elite

It's all deceit
Don't expect to succeed
No we'll never believe
The lie of being free


Divert and divide
Your prayers have been denied

Where morals and ethics
Have gone to die
The minorities and poor
Cast aside


Bread and circuses
Track Name: Penitentiary - Piece of Mind
Take a look at this world

We dont need your help

We dont need a crutch to lean on
Most too afraid to face their own demons

So if it's peace you want.
It wont be peace you get
Heres a piece of mind
Youre just a piece of shit

Feed those who fed you when you needed to eat

No room for weakness
