Obedience 01:24
Provoked by hatred, driven by fear You’re manipulated to adhere Made into a shill, they bend your will With a yank of a lease you’re made to heel Give hardships a name, scapegoats to blame A slogan to proclaim, they have you trained Pissin’ in your sheets like dog in heat An endless cycle that we’re doomed to repeat They induce contempt And make you subservient Your hatred is allegiance And your fear is obedience The divisions that they dictate Only serves to segregate If they distract us with disunity They can operate with impunity I’ll proudly be a deviant, because fear is obedience Fear is obedience
2.
Deep Shit 01:29
There’s a constant dread hanging over our heads And something tells me we’re gonna wind up dead Going head first down a bottomless pit Believe me, we’re in deep shit We deserve just what we get And we’re in deep shit Continual conflict, nuclear threats Counting down to our impeding death We deserve just what we get Believe me, we’re in deep shit They’re run and hide, we’ll pay the price Believe me, we’re in deep, deep shit
3.
Cut Me Loose 01:46
Brain scrambled, flying off the handle On the attack, ready to snap Overload, ready to explode About to burst, so do your worst Hit the striker, spark the primer Then step back, brace for impact Set me off, give me an excuse Light my fuse, cut me loose Set me off, I need an excuse Light my fuse, cut me loose Bite off more than you can chew And I’ll beat you black and blue Set me off, give me an excuse Light my fuse, cut me loose

86'd 01:10
We've known all along we don't belong When our time is up we just move along Setting ourselves up to be shut down Driven out of town, they don't want us around It's over just as soon as it begins It's not a matter of if, it's when Once again, we've been 86’d We just can't resist To add our names to another blacklist Once again, we’ve been 86’d For better or for worse, we are a curse Our very existence is perverse We can't be contained, won’t be tamed Our tattered legacy is bloodstained
5.
Bursting with bullshit, shoved down our throats Struggling to swallow, before we choke Lifeless, listless bags of bile and piss Waste of space, disgrace, you serve no purpose Death is routine, we’ve grown numb Blind, deaf, and dumb is what we’ve become Stand by, watch each other die Always ready to comply Stay numb, blind deaf and dumb And you just stay pacified Stand by, watch each other die And you just idly abide Stay numb, blind deaf and dumb And never seem to wonder why Show no interest, only indifference Blind, deaf, and dumb is what we’ve become Blind, deaf, and dumb Just a doormat, lethargic carpet Blind, deaf, and dumb is what we’ve become Blind, deaf, and dumb
6.
Not Dead Yet 01:30
A life sentence handed down at birth My own timer’s ticking to my death bed I need an expiration date on this shit hole earth Like I need another hole in my head No way to prevent it, my fate is set I’m still not dead yet No regrets, no time to lament Because I’m still not dead yet Death is encroaching rapidly approaching But I still have some time left Just another year on this sphere Another beer before I disappear Because I’m still not dead yet We all dance with death, so don’t hold your breath Because I’m still not dead yet
7.
Talk and talk they never stop And all you do is stand and gawk And you can bet that any chance they get They inundate us with their horse shit Stupid and loud They never shut their mouth But if we scream and shout We can drown them out Only half a brain Giving us a bad name If we scream and shout We can drown them out It’s all we can do to shut them down Before they turn into a crowd And they spread their messages of hate Before they’re accepted and embraced
8.
So it begins, the beginning of the end Hate has reared it’s ugly head again Mark my word, they’ve announced their return With straight arm salutes and crosses burned This time around, we’ll chase em down We’ve got ‘em, we’ve got em on the run Things will change, once they’re in their graves When we finally make amends, never again Make no mistake, they’ll treat us like ingrates Because we reject a legacy of hate This will be the sound when we bring it all down When we burn their empire to the ground This will be the sound when we bring it all down When we burn their empire to the ground This time around, we’ll chase em down We’ve got ‘em, we’ve got em on the run
9.
Defy, defile, spit in your face and smile The things you detest is what I like best I confess, I wanna fuck up your world Turn what's clean obscene Watch it all come unfurled Under duress Suffocated, suppressed A lifetime of indoctrination Mental incarceration You'll never get my obedience I'll never pledge my allegiance All ties are cut I hate your guts We are born innocent, before we’re made indolent Stifled at birth and robbed of our worth I live and breathe, to see those ideals bleed Resist and reject it, until I'm rotten and decrepit I relish in your disgust, feed on your mistrust All ties are cut, I hate your guts I'm your enemy, you'll never get rid of me Born to disrupt, I hate your guts You’re ornery, weak, about to be extinct Depraved and corrupt, I hate your guts
10.
War is business and business is great With the demand that they create They just invent another enemy And death becomes a commodity It’s the Iron Triangle The military industrial complex Have become merchants of death Rig legislation, sell devastation Then they call it a day and take a paid vacation Defense companies form PAC lobbies They fund congressional candidacies They buy an office, a seat in congress Trade favors with the bureaucracy They’ve found a loop hole around democracy We finance their weapons contracts They build their empire with our income tax They sell the rockets, line their pockets And turn war into a profit
11.
There’s a law for them and a law for us Corruption, obstruction, no chance of justice As long as they have deep pockets There’s nothing they can’t fix Systematic, bureaucratic, just a slap on the wrist They can’t get caught when freedom can be bought For the corrupt, it’s open and shut Another racketeer, their problems disappear For the corrupt, it’s open and shut It’s just open and shut, open and shut There’s a law for them and a law for us Corruption, obstruction, no chance of justice There’s always someone dirty out to make a quick buck And for the corrupt it’s just open and shut
12.
Mislead, deceive You’re naive enough to believe And they betray It’s the same bullshit, just a different day They pander their slander And you clamor to wave their banner Just another sucker You bought the con just like the others What the fuck did you expect Did you think it’d be different? They played you like an idiot You fell for the same old shit You fell for the same old shit What the fuck did you expect?

Turn To Dust 02:01
There will come a day when this all goes away Our world will deteriorate, disintegrate The human race will be erased All you’re worth will die with the earth Ours brains, our guts are meaningless It’s the end of us, return to nothingness Everything we know will be crushed Everything we are, it all turns to dust It’s arrogant to think we are permanent Our short stint is insignificant Ours brains and our guts are meaningless It’s the end of us, return to nothingness It won’t last, so here’s your chance Let’s go wild, make it worth your while Do you think you’re civilized Devised by divine intelligence Just ocean sludge walking upright Our existence is insignificant
