Track Name: The Feeling's Gone
“The Feeling’s Gone”

Here it comes again, always on my mind
Answers haven’t come with time, I’m losing myself
Here it comes again, always on my mind
Have I crossed too many lines? Am I beyond help?

Used to think I couldn’t see
Oh, how I’d missed the point
And lost what I was fighting for
But now I know what needs to be done
Ask and ye shall receive, if you can believe
But I’ve got something more in store for you

On my mind? No
I’ve been spent
Oh, the feeling’s gone

Thinking you have the answers
When I can’t trust a thing anymore
Hatred replaces the pain
Feel my silent war
On my (mind…)
Thinking you have the answers
When I can’t trust a thing anymore
Hatred replaces the pain
I can’t feel anymore

On my mind? No
I've been spent
I’ve seen you’re just the same

I’ve felt pain too long, the feeling’s gone
Time, I can only hope that time can take me home

Don’t try to read my mind
Don’t try to see what’s inside
I’ll never let you in again, no
I’ve got to teach you, take you down

Inside held back too long
Something dangerous is wrong
You’ll know how it feels
I’ll break you in pieces
Like you did to me
Track Name: Taste Your Own Death
“Taste Your Own Death”
Lyrics: I.K. Steele

Killing yourself wasn’t enough
So now you’ve pushed my streets
You made a big scene, flashing your bucks
Preying on the weak
We’ll make an example of you
The crew will break your neck

Eye for an eye, justice at its best
You stepped on my ground, no turning back
Eye for an eye, feel it drain you of breath
Taste your own death, feel there’s no regrets

With bat in hand and hate in our eyes
We slowly scan the streets
Searching for the scum you’ve perverted
Praying for the weak
I don’t care, I don’t want to know
What you do to yourself is fine
But you’ve crossed my boundaries
And now you’ve crossed the line

As you tighten the rope around your neck
You encourage the ignorant with your last breath
Take out one dealer, another steps in
But I’ll continue my war, my war on sin
Track Name: When Faced With Guilt
“When Faced With Guilt”

Sin after sin, day after day
Watching your life melt away
More, more in your veins
Drink, it’s all the same
Now I’ve got you down
You’re easy prey
Can you face me?
I am all that you need
I’ll tear you apart
Laugh, then watch you bleed

Sin after sin, day after day
Watching your life slip away
More, more in your veins
Drink, it’s all the same
Now I’ve got you down
You’re easy prey

If you knock me down
I’ll get back up and tear you apart

I’m fire, can you deal with it?
Oh your life is less than shit
Knock me down I’ll get back up
Then I will tear you apart

I am justice
Plead to me
Bleed on me
Let me taste your blood

Give me all that you’ve got
Knock me down I’ll get back up
Then I will tear you apart
Track Name: May The Shadows Catch Me
“May The Shadows Catch Me”

Living in the shadows, hiding in the dark
Alone since my quest began
I’ve lost something deep in my heart
And to get it back it’ll take all I’ve got

Understand that I don’t hate you
Understand I’m just trying to get through
Understand why I’m being so "righteous"
Understand that’s what it takes to fight this

If I fall, catch me. Will you catch me?

This misery deep inside of me
Now exposed for all of you to see
Cause sometimes I lack the strength
Sometimes I’m not as hard as I think

Why bother living when you’re already dead?

I’m begging you please…
How can I know that I can trust you?
How can I be sure that you’ll always come through?
Track Name: One On One (Demon Bear Magik)
"One On One (Demon Bear Magik)"

It's sick and it's wrong and with any caring person it doesn't belong
And it's blood on your hands every time lives are bought and sold in a can

One On One - Look me in the eye, tell me it's right

A bloody taste born from so much pain
With every bite you take it's more hate that I gain
Listen to your conscience look me in the eye
Listen to your conscience 'cause it won't lie

One life for you yet thousands die?
When I find you you're next in line

Now you've messed with Hardball
And you too will die!
Track Name: Brutality MCMXC/Creature Of Lust
“Brutality MCMXC/Creature Of Lust”

Fight to survive this world of shit
This world of hate that beckons me in
Tightened ropes that my spirit can’t slip
Fearing an end, but nothing begins

Filled with woe and I’m filled with hate
Fight fire with fire just to escape
Trust what they’ve said, "You live and you learn”
‘Cause cross me again and trust me, you’ll burn

Filled with woe and I’m filled with hate
I’ll fake a smile just to escape
Fight to survive, fight to win
Fight to escape this world I’m in

I’ve got a nose to bust
It’s yours, creature of lust
The law may have set you free
But now you’ll have to face me

Now I can hear the screams
Crying out for help in vain
Now there’s nothing you can do
You thought you’d won
But now you lose

Causing pain all too real
Tell me how’s it feel?
Do you think of women as your toys?
Something there for you to enjoy?

End this pain, end this pain
I won’t let it happen again
End this pain, end this pain
I won’t let it go in vain
Track Name: By Any Means Necessary
“By Any Means Necessary”

Extremist, poisoned mind, racist scum
There’s a war in the streets and it’s only just begun
You homophobic redneck trash
We’ll take you out from the first to the last

You’re a small step-up from the pick-up truck
Ripped off real skins, boneheads you suck
Your lives are worthless, now we’re ruthless

Any means necessary

Who are you to tell me what’s right?
You can’t save your own life
Confrontation turns into a fight
My fist soon reaches for a knife

Alcohol’s not a drug? It’s ok to drink?
Put that down bonehead, I’ll tell you how to think
Now you’re a drunk and racist piece of trash
So you’ll never survive our counterattack

We know we can’t eliminate hate
We’re just gonna stop you before it’s too late
Track Name: Bloodsoaked Mouths
"Bloodsoaked Mouths"

Conditioned righteous selfish minds
Cause compassion to quickly disappear
Mankind's self-proclaimed "leadership" binds
Transgressions of nature appear

No need to worry cause I'm not like you
I won't spend my life on my knees
You can't stop me from running you through
When you kill for humanity

Maybe some disciplined humility?
You can't always get what you want
Whether slaughtering an animal
Or ignoring a pregnancy
The pain of the past is a loaded gun

Now I won't turn my back, man
You know what it's about
Your failure to take responsibility
Killing innocents for yourself
I'm not impressed by your rationalizations
Just shut your blood-soaked mouth
I will make you see the truth
And I will be "extreme"

I will make you see the truth
I won't tell you any lies
Rip the veil from your eyes
Track Name: A Sickness In Southport
“A Sickness In Southport”

There’s a fight that I’ll win
But let me get a few things straight
Just before we begin
There was a time when I said,
“You and I are equal, let’s all just be friends”
But you slagged my ideals
With a total disregard for the way others feel
Now it’s time you pay up
Paid the price for what you’ve done
The damage is done

Pushed me around too long
Thought it was just for fun
You’d better watch your back
Time’s up for you, payback

There’s a hate built inside
I’ll carry it with me till the day I die
It’s not a hatred for you
It’s your life I despise
You’ll do anything to fit in
Even if it’s lies
There’s no love, no benefit
But you don’t even care
Cause you’re such a stupid dick
I offered my hand and you turned away
Now it’s time to make you pay

Time is up for you
Now I will payback
Now I will pay you back
Track Name: One On One (Thousands Die)
"One On One (Thousands Die)"

It's sick and it's wrong and with any caring person it doesn't belong
And it's blood on your hands every time lives are bought and sold in a can

One On One - Look me in the eye, tell me it's right

A bloody taste born from so much pain
With every bite you take it's more hate that I gain
Listen to your conscience look me in the eye
Listen to your conscience 'cause it won't lie

One life for you yet thousands die?
When I find you you're next in line

One day the slaughterhouses will close their doors forever

Now you're playing Hardball
And you too will die!
Track Name: To Suffer The Oppressor
"To Suffer The Oppressor"

Ignorant brains drenched in filth
Cheap thieving excuses to cover their guilt
A joke or a smile covers death
Conditioned to eat an animal's milk or its flesh
Land wasted on drugs while the people starve
Slaughterhouses and a mother Earth that's scarred
You're killing more than yourself and your pain's just begun

I'm not afraid of what's right
I'll take any extreme for the sake of all life
With the world headed straight for the end
You say that you care but how much time do you spend?
I'll pick up a gun when the war has begun
Not afraid of the risks, fighting one on one
Peaceful action has failed
It's now or never, open casket or nailed

Alcohol's not a drug or so we're programmed to think
Oppressors of the innocent have taken us to the brink
Well I can see the end and I just can't stand back
When they come for me I'll be braced for attack

Don't tell me it's too late
Revolution is calling and they'll have no escape
Don't tell me it's too late
Or suffer the oppressors' fate!
