Track Name: Change
I work so hard for nothing. I can't get no respect in my life. It cuts a hole a hole in me. I'm the beast that won't submit. I thought it would change, thought it should change, thought it could change. Now I'm in front of you with nothing to lose.
Track Name: Threat
I am at the end. The end of my tether. I am no good. I am stuck on you. Can you endure? Can you evade? I'm a threat to you. This is my rock through your window.
Track Name: Too Little Too Late
You don’t know why this is your fault? You’re burning bridges you’re smashing mirrors. You’re upside down you’re inside out. You settle down they shut it down.
Track Name: Let Down
I walk these streets all alone, only a foot path leads me on. I don't need it. It's a let down. I can't take it. It tears me in two. Does it matter? Only the shadows pass me by. They see my anguish. They feel my pain.
Track Name: Bored / Boring
We are all the same. We all could just complain. It will just ruin you. Just express all your pain.We are the bored. You’re so boring I can't take it, your sharp tongue I can't take it, all this shit I can't take it, all your pain I can't take it. You’re bored? You’re boring.
Track Name: Betrayal
Lost in the dark, under my skin a knife in my back. There is no trust. Without warning you shoot me down. Though in the path of your frenzy I am not for your torment. Your course. Your Function. Your knife in my back.
Track Name: Common Ground
Do you want to know what will set you free? We are all the same fighting to believe. Damn this, damn that. Damn it all to Hell. The one who broods too much you’re so fucking old, make your amends.
Track Name: Ravagers
The sky is tainted. We live in decay, we die in decay. I'm sick. We are the creators, we are the destroyers.
