Track Name: Hard Times
I ain't no stranger to pain and fucking strife
Been living that shit for most my fucking life
Tried to keep a level head for so long
Living life with my back against the wall
I'm about to break

HARD TIMES, HARD TIMES
Could this be my destiny
CRUSHED BY THE WEIGHT
Of a hopeless world I'm about to break
HARD TIMES, HARD TIMES
Forcing me to a life of hate, a life of hate, a life of hate

28 years of a life so cold, and alone
Seems Like the hard times are all Ive ever known
Locked out, Held down since my fucking birth
Until my last breath, I live this fucking curse

HARD TIMES, HARD TIMES
Could this be my destiny
CRUSHED BY THE WEIGHT
Of a hopeless world I'm about to break
HARD TIMES, HARD TIMES
Forcing me to a life of hate, a life of hate, a life of fucking hate

The weight keeps piling on and on
Until my heart goes cold

It just keeps coming, just keeps coming HARD TIMES
An endless wave that just keeps coming HARD TIMES
Im being crushed by the weight HARD TIMES
I never wanted it this way HARD TIMES
Track Name: No Apologies (ft. Nate from NOI!SE)
Cast your judgments but I live my life with no regrets
I own my ways all my mistakes a never ending debt
A defiant mind born to cross all lines, I have no apologies
Weak minded fools is all I see, living on your fucking knees

This paths my own I follow no one, MY LIFE
societies views wont change my ways, MY WAYS
Wont live my life trapped in your cage, Fuck your world
I will say what I think, I will do what I want
No apologies

No apologies
No apologies
I don't care for the likes of you
No apologies
What you think or the things you do
No apologies

(Nate from NOI!SE)
This life I was thrown into has been no easy path
Evil ways, wasted days, you know I can't go back
but who I am you could never even try to understand
you wanna change me, but this is where I stand

No apologies
No apologies
I don't care for the likes ofyou
No apologies
What you think or the things you do

BREAK
Fuck your world
I think it's time for a reality check
Fuck your world
FUCK YOUR WORLD
Track Name: Your Mistake
You swallow lies that the world has sold you
while control falls to place among you
what's left to believe when nothing is real
what's left to love when your told how to feel

Are you so blind, you can't think for yourselves
free your mind, THEY CAN'T HOLD US DOWN

Who do you trust, what do you love
What do you know, NOT A FUCKING THING NOW

A history full of lies and deceit
divide to control, then conquer the weak
stop blindly following esoteric solutions
organize, with focused minds, REVOLUTION

Are you so blind, you can't think for yourselves
free your mind, THEY CAN'T HOLD US DOWN

Who do you trust, what do you love
What do you know, NOT A FUCKING THING NOW

Ignorance is bliss, so they say
while your rights are being stripped away
a state of constant fear to hold you down
do you really feel safer now
how much more are you willing to take
before you realize it's your mistake
Track Name: Tired of Lies
The governments here to save you all
from the terrorists and the suicide bombs
Policies are passed to keep you safe
never questioning whats at stake

al-Qaida's back behind white house doors
while our brothers die in foreign wars
veterans are now terrorist threats
in the very nation they swore to protect

aren't you tired of lies

Chemicals dropped in the air you breathe
proven facts you refuse to believe
Re-education if you don't abide
and if you search for truth you're on the other side

Everywhere I look I can't believe
The faces you see are used to deceive
Everything they tell you is an empty thought
regurgitated rhetoric, spewed and bought

Aren't you tired of lies
or do you enjoy living in disgrace

They say the end is near
but I will not live in fear

How the fuck can you tell me
fear is not a tool leading the blind
what the fuck do you stand for
hiding behind all the force fed lies
are you just so ignorant
you can't think for your fucking self
or are you just so arrogant
you think you got it all figured out
you will never silence me
this is my voice I'll have my say
They say the end is near
but I will not live in fear
Track Name: Devil's Prey
THESE DEVILS IN DISGUISE
They prey on innocent eyes
DON'T FALL FOR THEIR LIES
They live to victimize

These devils whispers have fooled you
these wolves have come to lure you
take this do that, it'll feel so good
they take advantage of you, take what they want
leave you broken and cold why can't you see
I'm not here to fight you I just want to see
the day you stop hurting yourself, cause it's killing me

THESE DEVILS IN DISGUISE
They prey on innocent eyes
DON'T FALL FOR THEIR LIES
They live to victimize

False reality, hypnotized like moth to a flame
leaves a beautiful face hardened with pain, burdened with sorrow, buried in shame
betrayed by many no one to trust
what seemed so right has sucked you dry
the further you sink the harder to get out

THESE DEVILS IN DISGUISE
They prey on innocent eyes
DON'T FALL FOR THEIR LIES
They live to victimize

I tried and tried and tried to show you
loved and loved and loved and loved you
given all my sanity to save you
from this wicked world

I tried and tried and tried to show you
loved and loved and loved and loved you
given all my sanity to save you
from this wicked world

I know the pain you hold in your heart
the lies you've believed that left you so scarred
these devils seduce with wine and with pills
to take who you are for their own satisfaction

They whisper lies, destroyers of lives
If I had my way they'd all fucking die
I'd take the sorrow the pain and the strife
bring light to your life and burn them alive

DEVILS PREY
DEVILS PREY
Don't become the devils prey
