I can feel it Inside my bones It's not my nature But all I've ever known Raised in hate With a pride undeserved Flying dead men's flags Hurling rich men's stones Clouds of thunder What am I? Prey or hunter? Makes me wonder I’ll find a way Through the smoke and fire It's you or me and I’ll never give in Face to face with my enemy An embrace with the blade Death rides in and whispers: “I'll take you all the same”

Stuck in the loop And I don’t know what to do My mind is spinning But I can’t seem to move I promised myself This time would be the last But now I’m here and something’s Making me relive the past Don’t look back Push forward Controlling my thoughts And who I want to be Blinding my vision Of the future that I see I stare at the ceiling Watch the years go by But life keeps on moving Am I running out of time

He lead by example. King stood against oppression without violence. And now, we are in his debt for teaching peaceful protest. What would it take for you to join in? Emma spoke out and she stood up when so many voices went silent. And now, we are in her debt for speaking against violence. What would it take for you to join in to this protest? What if you were tested to do the right thing? Would you run or would you stand up and be counted? Join in, protest!

Cries of a country Swell the rivers of blood Eyes of a sentinel Survey their every move Starving people fed on lies Propaganda is the tool Kill the rotting tiger with The justice of a noose What’s the cost Slay the blood red beast Nation of the lost Watch your tyrant bleed In a divided land Just like a cancer That tears the body apart With domination and control At its malignant heart Through the years of darkness Through the years of pain Under their dying breath Will of the people will reign Crushed by the cause Under a blood red beast Nations of the lost Watch your tyrants bleed In a divided land

Life’s pressures is unbearable, I must be flexible, Losing grip with reality, I must keep sanity, Testing my strength, I must go the length! I won’t be defeated! Emotions in my head, progression won’t be dead, The weight on my back, gotta stay on track, Pressing with all my might! I won’t give in this fight! Heart at a hundred, visions blurred, gotta finish how I started my heart will be heard! Undefeated! I won’t be defeated! I’ll destroy every fucking obstacles in my way, I’ll fight til my dying end!

All eyes are on you watching your every move every corner every screen every step they're watching you systems are constructed for our safety? every corner every screen every step they're watching you Do you feel safe? Does it give you peace of mind? Data observed, analyzed Data filtered, influenced Data traded, compromised Data collected, no consent You are a surveillance target.

I’m looking for a way out, A way out of here and now. This place wants to drag me down, nine of twelve I feel it now. I feel it now. I thought it was gone but it pulls me back, I struggle to remove myself. I struggle to - I struggle too. Again I pick myself back up, the cycle of it all never felt so rough. Now you say how things will change but I’ve tried and I’ve tried every way. How I feel in this three of twelve is clearer than it ever was. This is not a cry for help this is just an expression of my current self. I feel it now, all along, I knew it wasn’t too far gone. “And in this city I’ve always known as hell, is a garden where I enjoy myself”

Circling the corners of my brain Wondering why it’s always raining Took a drive last night to clear my mind but it’s always raining It’s constant fight or flight Shooting up and down my spine But I don’t mind Because it’s easier to hide And I tell myself it’ll be okay That red eyes will make it all go away These four walls became my only friends Promised me I’ll never be lonely again It’s constant fight or flight Shooting up and down my spine But I don’t mind Because it’s easier to hide Count the rings of a family tree Their nerves are shaken by just about everything Spend a lifetime trying to get better Then you realize it’s just a waste of time

There’s no hope There’s no hope There’s no hope There’s no hope There’s no hope There’s no hope In this town In this town In this town In this town There’s no hope There’s no hope There’s no hope There’s no hope There’s no hope There’s no hope In this town In this town In this town In this town (Interlude) Gentrification hurts the poor Gentrification is a leach Gentrification hurts the poor Gentrification is a leach There’s no hope (till the end)

HATRED BURNING Hatred. Burning. March of the right Rise of the racists As nazis unite What you fear has come true The fourth reich is coming for you Hatred. Burning.

--FIXED-- Scream and argue back and forth Your lip service is bullshit Mill around at basement shows Preying on who's weakest Punk Rock Jock Support your friends Even if they're a rapist Thinking that you're in control? You'll never fucking take it. Take a look around. Everyone's the same Hardcore tourists Circling the Drain Being decent isn't tough You couldn't fucking hack it Traded in a football jersey For a leather jacket Phony freaks and weirdo kinks Use your fucking safe word "Good Dude, Backed Hard" Fucking Try-Hard Setting the gold standard Fucking Drop Out...

Last time I yelled this it was gone in seconds Oh the speed of sound Wrote about how I wrecked it And tried to accept it Until it beat me down I’ve choked a lot Kept it well hidden I’ve skipped on thought Now what was I saying I’ve been swept away

I need to be myself. “Flex your head,” and told to use. “The kind are strong, not the abusive.” “Open up,” cause “looks don't matter.” “Be yourself,” not like the fucking masses– In my youth I found my truth in songs about the true meaning of being strong, Yeah from YOU: You didn't teach me what to fucking wear, you were the scene who showed me the courage to care, not some tough guys or stuck-up motherfuckers. What the fuck happened to you? Fuck your violence and culture of cool. Massachusetts, I thought you were a scene of open minds & open hearts? Was I a foolish kid or did you mean it? Show you mean it.

“From the West Wing of My Mansion” I can gather that I’ve been disappointing I can feel you’re owed an explanation Blood from a stone before any rationale No room for a future, no room with a view at all All my friends live so far away now Being cold has lost all appeal somehow I put your dreams up on the shelf Cause I’ve been busy trying to love myself Rolled over that hood and never felt better Limped three blocks home just to stare in the mirror Save me room on your couch, I’ve got some things to show you All my friends live so far away now Dying alone has lost all appeal somehow It’s all I ever wanted, and I pushed it out the door Cause I’ll pay for what I stole
15.
“News to me” There you go butting in again Who asked your opinion anyway Think ya got all the answers? Well that’s news to me! Ya never shut up You ain’t got a fucking clue Cut the act You bring it in and we’ll smack it the fuck back Think ya got all the answers? Well that’s news to me!

Watch The Empire as it falls On TV In real time The King smiles Picks his teeth with the bones of the blissfully guided Stuffed fat, Stuffed dumb, Stuffed mean and satisfied This is not the doom of man We should be so lucky It is the curtain yanked back Worst impulses revealed You could not ask for a better time to be alive Things they do not change Instinct don’t lie Throw two men into the Colosseum Cheer to watch one die You could not ask for a better time to be alive As brick by glorious brick topples into the flame

Been practicing The words to say Caught in my throat In them I must lay I’m not ready for what comes next Not ready to be honest Still waiting still waiting Still waiting, still waiting Stony brook hides my secret I wish that I could keep it as summer turns to fall The sticks drowning in the creek it reminds me of the beings Who surround me one and all I’m still waiting I’m still waiting I’m still waiting I’m still waiting I’m still waiting I’m still waiting I’m still waiting I’m still waiting

I sense the darkness rolling in High tides, deep depths, crash into my skin Fighting off the undertow that’s dragging me Arms ache, legs weak, from treading Losing hope, losing sleep, can’t cope, can’t breathe I try to keep my head above but I’m sinking Swollen sea swallows me, I’m drowning My sadness is so heavy it buries me It’s hard to reach the surface that’s eluding me
