Track Name: Parasite
You are just a waste of space
I hate to see your fucking face
Take and take but never give
If I had it my way you'd cease to live
Sitting on the couch all day
Content as your life wastes away
Your days of living off others are through
It's not society's job to take care of you

(Get a life)
You're a burden to everyone
(Get a life)
Sick of you and now I'm done
(Get a life)
Without you, my future's looking bright
(Get a life)
You're a parasite

Take my home away from me
Fill me with rage and hostility
I can't wait for all this to end
so I never have to see you again

(Get a life)
You're a burden to everyone
(Get a life)
Sick of you and now I'm done
(Get a life)
Without you, my future's looking bright
(Get a life)
You're a parasite
Track Name: Pre Sell Your Soul
Promoters, they prey on the weak and young
Inexperienced musicians with their songs unsung
Pay out of your pocket if you wanna play
So they get their money and don't care who stays

The only thing that I can say is
(Fuck pay to play)
We'll just do things our own way
(Fuck pay to play)

These types of shows are pointless, you don't gain new fans
You think you're making money but it's just a scam
Beware of these promoters and the lies that they tell
Instead of getting money, you're stuck with tickets to sell

The only thing that I can say is
(Fuck pay to play)
We'll just do things our own way
(Fuck pay to play)
Track Name: Assimilation
Welcome to America, the land of the free
We're taught to follow certain rules in order to succeed
Go to college, study and immerse yourself in debt
and if you're lucky you can work to barely make a check

These standards are preventing us from being truly free
I'm not made for this life and it's not made for me
Why trade a life of individuality
for a generic existence of false security
I refuse to assimilate myself into a mold
by doing and acting exactly as I'm told
The moment I give in to this societal regime
is when I become just another gear in the machine

Buy buy buy, satisfy your consumer needs
Purchase all the latest products shown on your t.v.
Use them as a substitute for parenting your kids
cause it's much easier than the alternative

These standards are preventing us from being truly free
I'm not made for this life and it's not made for me
Why trade a life of individuality
for a generic existence of false security
I refuse to assimilate myself into a mold
by doing and acting exactly as I'm told
The moment I give in to this societal regime
is when I become just another gear in the machine

So watch the news and be scared into submission
Stare at the screen and lose all cognition
Eat at McDonald's cause who needs nutrition
Relinquish your mind and submit your volition
The tower of ignorance must be dismantled
So make a difference and set the example
Living only to buy and consume
will lead to our total destruction and doom

This life's not for
This life's not for
This life's not for me
Track Name: Contention
Why put down others with slander and hate
Instead stick together to think and create

Destructive inhabitants of a musical scene
A danger to themselves, to you and to me

This isn't a contest or a competition
We're all together in a similar mission

Destructive inhabitants of a musical scene
A danger to themselves, to you and to me

The music didn't change, it's the labels that did
People segregate it with the things they forbid
I don't care how hard you are, or what type of "core"
All I know is I don't wanna hear it anymore
Track Name: Self Division (Ft. Clitorati)
Why do we divide ourselves so willingly?
Perpetuating hatred and hostility

Discriminating others who aren't like you
Why can't you see another point of view?

Living in a strange world that is divided
wishing instead that we could be united
We don't wanna live here if it's this way
If only you had something better to say

Discriminating others who aren't like you
Why can't you see another point of view?

Dehumanizing people of the world
Teaching hatred in the schools to all the little boys and girls
Sometimes I feel like the only one
who feels like this racist shit and malevolence is overdone

Religious bigots who are quick to judge
Ignorant racists who will hold a grudge
Against those who are any different than them
This type of destructive behavior must end

Signing off discriminating laws
Persecute the innocent and say it's for a just cause
Putting up with ignorance and hate
Focus on the differences, ignore the ways that we relate

Religious bigots who are quick to judge
Ignorant racists who will hold a grudge
Against those who are any different than them
This type of destructive behavior must end
Track Name: Narcissism
Walk over others, don't care if they've bled
Do what it takes if it means we get ahead
Cutthroat attempts at inconsequential goals
Life is a play, we all want the title role

(Start with yourself)
Break the chain of narcissism
(Start with yourself)
Make a clean slate
All we have is you and me
So learn to practice empathy
(Start with yourself)
Before it's too late

This song is about the selfish things people do
But make no mistake, this verse is for you
It pains me to see just how far you could fall
You once spoke of no cash, but now you want it all

(Start with yourself)
Break the chain of narcissism
(Start with yourself)
Make a clean slate
All we have is you and me
So learn to practice empathy
(Start with yourself)
Before it's too late

Creatures filled with discontent
Egos and entitlement
Always something to resent
Never feeling satisfied, always wanting more
Track Name: Open Your Eyes
All I see is a sad old man grasping for his past
Brag about the imaginary fortune you've amassed
Avoid responsibility like the fucking plague
All the people you have wronged will come for you one day

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
See through the lies
See through the lies
See through the lies

You seem to be lacking respect for others and yourself
Overlook morality in the pursuit of wealth
Manipulating others for your own personal gain
Your actions aren't forgotten but the damages remain

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
See through the lies
See through the lies
See through the lies
Track Name: Future Fear
Drive myself crazy, I know
it's all in my head but the thoughts still flow
Afraid of what may lie ahead
My mind is filled up with worry and dread
Fear consumes my mind, what if I don't find
my purpose in this life, one devoid of strife

I'm not content with the current conditions
Constantly wanting to accomplish more
All that I've done is never enough
I need to grind until my bones are sore

Nobody seems to see
what they think is best isn't best for me
Why can't they just say
something that will really help someday?
Sometimes all of this
can seem so pointless
But the last thing that I need
is any apathy

I'm not content with the current conditions
Constantly wanting to accomplish more
All that I've done is never enough
I need to grind until my bones are sore

Trapped in a cell of uncertainty
My mind is the prison, the future the key
Who I am and where I will be
can only be chosen by me
Track Name: All Due Respect
Don't censor me because you don't agree
Sometimes the truth isn't what you wanna hear
Who are you to tell me what I can say?
This voice is mine, and I'll use it my way

No one's opinions should be discounted
Nobodies' thoughts should be stifled or oppressed
Failure to act will enable injustice
Remaining indifferent makes you like the rest

One person's voice is a powerful tool
It can rally the people or do something cruel
All should have the liberty to express
what they want if it's said with respect

Just like there's always two sides
Freedom of speech is easily abused
Homophobic racists and bigots
prove that certain voices shouldn't be used

One person's voice is a powerful tool
It can rally the people or do something cruel
All should have the liberty to express
what they want if it's said with respect
Track Name: Diseased
Turn away the sick and the poor
Greedy providers always want more
Rich get all their treatment with ease
This system is the fucking disease

You're dead without treatment, there's nothing you can do
They wanna save your wallet, they don't wanna save you
Doesn't matter if you're handicapped, disabled or you're sick
They'll turn a blind eye as you die, and ask you to make it quick

Care isn't given for free
Instead it's a luxury
Our country allows sickness to spread
and holds the cure right over our heads

You're dead without treatment, there's nothing you can do
They wanna save your wallet, they don't wanna save you
Doesn't matter if you're handicapped, disabled or you're sick
They'll turn a blind eye as you die, and ask you to make it quick

We're gonna take all the patients and throw 'em out
We'll dump 'em in the streets and forget about
all the lives we ruin with our policies
Just ignore the problem, it'll be a breeze

You're dead without treatment, there's nothing you can do
They wanna save your wallet, they don't wanna save you
Doesn't matter if you're handicapped, disabled or you're sick
They'll turn a blind eye as you die, and ask you to make it quick
Corrupt insurance companies are the source of all the pain
they pay only what they have to, and minimize their claims
Spending in this industry continues to increase,
but some people's life expectancies aren't growing in the least

Examine the system and give
others a chance to live
