Track Name: Tainted - Beneath The Veneer
Beneath the Veneer

Split lip voice tone wavers aloud
Trying to bury envy ingrained
Untold bullshit spills from wounded pride
Now stains betray the Intentions you hide

So let’s see you spin the line, until you choke on the lies
You look so pitiful, cut the shit out now
Reap what you have sown
Beneath the calm Veneer
You know this shit is getting old

Lips move, a tongue flickers
Behind clenched teeth, the words tasting bitter
Don't shit on your back door
A piece of advice, you failed to heed

So let’s see you spin the line, until you choke on the lies
You look so pitiful, cut the shit out now
Reap what you have sown
Beneath the calm Veneer
You know this shit is getting old

I want to see you choke

Lips move, a tongue flickers
Behind clenched teeth now
Don't shit on your back door
A piece of advice

Split lip voice tone wavers aloud
Trying to bury envy ingrained
Untold bullshit spills from wounded pride
Now stains betray the Intentions you hide

So let’s see you spin the line, until you choke on the lies
You look so pitiful, cut the shit out now
Reap what you have sown
Beneath the calm Veneer
You know this shit is getting old
Track Name: Say What You Mean
Say What You Mean

Burning in hypocrisy you lament on your
Actions a feebly pleasing contradicting verse
Unashamed to play mental games Exposing all insecurities stripped bare let me finger the wound

Stripped bare let me finger the wound

All hail, your saintly scripts broadcast
Transparent, why cant you just say what you mean
All hail, a promise unkept dying
Bullshit, why cant you just say what you mean

Screaming, we reject, those laws that your forcing upon us
"Tyrants! Unchecked despots!"
Shallow words from the mouths of bigots
Never have we put our words into action
Just as useless as the ones that we condemn

ones that we condemn

All hail, your saintly scripts broadcast
Transparent, why cant you just say what you mean
All hail, a promise unkept dying
Bullshit, why cant you just say what you

mean why cant you just say what you mean

say what you mean!!!!

All hail, your saintly scripts broadcast
Transparent, why cant you just say what you mean
All hail, a promise unkept dying
dying
Bullshit, why cant you just say what you mean
Track Name: Scars
SCARS

path of loss and years of pain
have face some fears but some remain
so wash your hands of this
these scars are now your fists

soul will tire
soul will wake
soul will suffer
soul will ache (soul will ache)
mind will grow
but mind may break
tomorrow's scars
will lead the way

cannot erase cannot rewind
take the blow recognize
this naive wish to turn back time
will drain your soul of what makes you wise

your future self looks back reaching to you
there's a path we all walk but the rewards may be few,
I can't tell you the things that you want to know
the wounds of today are the scars of tomorrow

cannot erase cannot rewind
take the blow recognize
this naive wish to turn back time
will drain your soul of what makes you wise

makes you wise

your future self looks back reaching to you
there's a path we all walk but the rewards may be few,
I can't tell you the things that you want to know
the wounds of today are the scars of tomorrow

soul will tire
soul will wake
soul will suffer
soul will ache (soul will ache)
mind will grow
but mind may break
tomorrow's scars
will lead the way

Soul will tire (soul will tire)
Soul will wake (soul will wake)
Tomorrows scars (Tomorrows scars)
WILL LEAD THE WAY
WILL LEAD THE WAY
Track Name: Broken
BROKEN

Your eyes are out, the sockets hollow.
The stench flows to overwhelm you
Like sheep breed to follow
I shout out, screaming at you

Your savior comes with fingers crossed
A new world order within their grasp
The wheel it beckons, they’ll strip you bare
And weave your bones
Till you’re broken

Your suffering feeds the machine
Struck down by those you trust the most
A lure of a higher ground ahead
A sacrificial slope before it

Your savior comes with fingers crossed
A new world order is not enough
The wheel it beckons, they’ll strip you bare
And weave your bones
Till you’re broken

Bleeding life
Cry out
And yet, you still breathe
Trapped inside
Cry out
And yet, you still breathe.
Track Name: Entrenched
Entrenched

"Serve with honor patriotism and pride"
They all told you
"Fight to defend our freedoms justice and truth"
And you swallowed it
In foreign lands your turning cold

Shot to hell just close your eyes
Reason was lost so long ago
Shot to hell just close your eyes
Die for ideals forever entrenched
Entrenched

Ego's drive men always to one conclusion
Kill more, to take more
To make more, to kill more

It's all the same you see

For.."Serve with honor patriotism and pride"
They all told you
"Fight to defend our freedoms justice and truth"
And you swallowed it
In foreign lands your turning cold

Shot to hell just close your eyes
Reason was lost so long ago
Shot to hell just close your eyes
Die for ideals forever entrenched
Entrenched
Track Name: Carved and Created
Carved and Created

Into this word
The cycle left unchecked
Turn your back and walk away
Nothing could slate his thirst
A burden we laid with him first

That will take it all and leave you nothing
Will never change, it’s hell to pay
Carved and created, for generations
It’s now, it’s now too late

Years of debt
That must now Must be repaid
They could not escape
His fists in blind sick fury
Driven in his reckoning

That will take it all and leave you nothing
Will never change, it’s hell to pay
Carved and created, for generations
It’s just, it’s just too late

Keeping the score, they want it more
Keeping the score, they want it more...
It’s not who he is, but what he is
It’s not who he is, but what he is...

The horror
Someone must be at fault
To be held to blame
Stone wall hide the guilty
Fists form for the end of us all

That will take it all and leave you nothing
Will never change, it’s hell to pay
Carved and created, for generations
It’s now, it’s now too late

That will take it all and leave you nothing
Will never change, it’s hell to pay
Carved and created, for generations
It’s just, it’s just too late
Track Name: ...Vengeance
Vengeance

Out from the dark stepped three men
Instantly fear took a hold, displayed in their prisoners eyes
Bound and held, dragged towards
A cold blooded crowd, thirsty for justice' sake

No mercy, No mercy, No mercy, No mercy for cowards
Empty the clip, feel the bolt snap back
The stench of vengeance is crippling
Empty the clip, feel the bolt snap back
The stench of vengeance is crippling

Killing out front or back there seems to be no difference

Out from the dark dragged to the wall
The condemned man thrashes in vain to steal freedom
Eye to eye with friends now foe
Baying to kill in the red washed sky of dawn

No mercy, No mercy, No mercy, No mercy for cowards
Empty the clip, feel the bolt snap back
The stench of vengeance is crippling
Empty the clip, feel the bolt snap back
The stench of vengeance is crippling

Never in hell should a man have to witness this
Killing out front or back there seems to be no difference

No mercy, No mercy, No mercy, No mercy for cowards
Empty the clip, feel the bolt snap back
The stench of vengeance is crippling
Empty the clip, feel the bolt snap back
The stench of vengeance is crippling
Empty the clip, feel the bolt snap back
The stench of vengeance is crippling
Empty the clip, feel the bolt snap back
The stench of vengeance is crippling
Track Name: Departed
Departed

Your whole senseless
Cruel now disclosed
All along I knew what you were
Born to devour
In you I placed trust, had it crushed

Fools only see what they want to
So I was blind
Thieves always steal what’s there to take
So I was left desperate...
...With no escaping
Why have I failed too many times
On my own this burden I'll carry
So just let me bury, bury, the dearly departed

This soul was alive
When I held you so high
So quick to betray
You asked and I gave
With all of my strength, all I had

Fools only see what they want to
So I was blind
Thieves always steal what’s there to take
So I was left desperate...
...With no escaping
Why have I failed too many times
On my own this burden I'll carry
So just let me bury, bury, the dearly departed

Vindication,
Always comes at a great cost...

...With no escaping
Why have I failed too many times
On my own this burden I'll carry
So just let me bury, bury, the dearly departed
departed now
Track Name: Bound By My Own
Bound (By My Own)

The veil of night is gone
The horror of day begins
Its time to run its time to flee
A numbness you wish to keep
Reach for your memories past
But in with the living your cast
The fear of your own life your living in now

Here in this skin, staring out no one dears look in
Here in this hell, can't hope to get away
The stigma, the anger burns in me
Bound by my own, the hate in me begins to flow

The veil of night is gone
The horror of day begins
Its time to run its time to flee
A numbness you wish to keep
Reach for your memories past
But in with the living your cast
The fear of your own life your living in now

Here in this skin, staring out no one dears look in
Here in this hell, can't hope to get away
The stigma, the anger burns in me
Bound by my own, the hate in me begins to flow

The stigma, the anger burns in me
Bound by my own, the hate in me begins to
The stigma...
Bound by my own, the hate in me begins to flow
Track Name: Tyranny
Tyranny

Hear me now I wont sleep
Underneath false freedom
My people tire of these scenes of raining bombs
And bloodied stumps and towers falling
This must stop

Reject the tyranny, rise
With ever strong resolve

All to arms we must persist
With this war no one can win
Aimless we're lashing and paying the cost
In hunger and blood you can't replace what we've lost

Reject the tyranny, rise
With ever strong resolve
My sanctuary defended
An ounce of prevention
Outweighs a ton of cure

Behold the beast that breeds the lies
The black god with his darkness blinds
Who gives you life but bleeds you dry
Who cracks the whip and terrifies
The population starts to crawl
Slowly accepting marshal law
The bodies of the fallen charred
Burning in the flames of war

Its time to pay for what you've done
It's time to bleed like we have bled
No compromise no resolution
It's on your fucking head

Reject the tyranny, rise
With ever strong resolve
My sanctuary defended
An ounce of prevention
Outweighs a ton of cure

Words are strong but your not listening
I hope you understand these actions
Watch your back
