1.
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

Lockdown 02:54
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

Recidivist 03:34
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)

Deadworld 03:05
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.

Injustice 07:31
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)

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

Snitch 02:49
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

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
