Old Haunts 01:48
Anger ain’t an old man’s game Well I never wanted to play Only ever wanted a pretty place To see the end of my days We never changed - what’s in our brains We never changed - what’s in our veins Still finding solace in city streets With this ringing in my ears Sucking up pride and spitting out My hate right through the years Youth is wasted on the young and wisdom on the old Well either one only comes with broken fucking bones Haunting the places that we never changed
Burner 01:52
Etched regret under your skin Burn it burn it burn out your X Monument to giving in Burn it burn it burn out your X Did it mean the world or was it a waste? Burn it burn it burn out your X Shut your mouth or get it erased Burn those fuckers out of your flesh Dulled, diluted; a shadow of your former self Don’t judge me with your dirty breath So you’re living life differently now - that’s just fine with me But I don’t wanna hear about you coming around - talking bout how it used to be That mark on your arm is meaningless now - just like your fucking word Til I die I’ll wear it with pride - it still means something to me
Still Life 01:36
It’s a harsh truth in the human heart What brought us together will tear us apart And it’s hard not to grow colder When the world weighs hard on your shoulder The passage of time The passion the strife I wish my life was a still life People of real substance Will kill themselves with selflessness But the world won’t listen Well my throat don’t seem to care [chorus] Still locked in prisons of time Wish my life was a still life But life is still life is still life is still life
Hard Rain 01:59
Bottles on the street, needles on my lawn Living in a city drowned in opioids Greener pastures to urban decay When’s a hard rain gonna wash it all away? Down the fucking drain Flush that bullshit down the fucking drain Crack house on the corner, sirens on my block Broken skulls of paramedics going into shock Building up Main Street for rich kids to play When’s a hard rain gonna wash it all away? Down the fucking drain Flush that bullshit down the fucking drain It’s all the same to me Jocks getting hammered Junkies wasting away Fuck the pharma companies that are getting paid Fuck their dealers and the way they prey Fuck a justice system in disarray And fuck any culture that thinks it’s okay The dose makes the poison while I live in a drought Waiting on the rain to wash it all out
Force Fed 02:15
Force FED
Off The Cuff 01:55
No fucking way that I’m gonna stay Locked in this cage that I’ve made A cog in a culture that’s killing itself I’ll never be the same Normalized Suicide Are you alive or just killing time? Counting down the days until you die Sharpen your mind into a scythe That’s the only way that you’re gonna survive Normalized Suicide Now you’re dead and buried in your fucking grave Don’t ask me what I’m living for I just wanna be free A broken down body with a head fulla shit That’s never gonna be me
The final sands of violent times Are running out under ashen skies Before we choke we better learn A profits only good to burn Will we find grace or will we face The chloroform of dying days Corporate greed; crippled faith Will this be our last mistake? Living lower than the animals To satiate our lowest pulse Over oceans and beyond seas Smog and suffering for you and me You think that it won’t get to you? But the reaper’s claw cuts cuts right through We all come from dust And we’ll return to dust But still there’s time to change our course Come together; a reckoning force No room for ego; we gotta evolve Become tomorrow; the time the time is now
