Track Name: Failure
Judging everyone else, you only look for bad
You’re just a pessimist and then you turn your back
You've got so much to love, can’t stop pushing away
Your negativity is suffocating me

Why can't you pull your head out of the dirt to see what you have
Because everyone else you're so caught up with yourself
Worried about what they all think what it is that you should think

They all say actions speak louder than words
So keep your eyes on me so that you can listen
I’m that screaming in your ear
I’m that everything that you fear

You'll sit around spitting all that game
But when it’s time to walk, everyone else to blame
Preaching of righting these wrongs while you sit there and ruin
You won’t step up to prove it
You don’t deserve it, I knew it
Still talking, ahh screw it

It’s a lose-lose situation with you, no compromising to do
So I’m through with you

Your negativity breeds nothing but failure
As you get things, you want more
And if you don’t, than you’re done for
You say I’m saying this, I say I’m living it
You can’t expect change, until you work for it
Track Name: Tread Lightly
I was born in a country that I love with all my heart
But it's so hard to watch it all fall apart in front of me

"In God, We Trust"
But it's in people who we must

We preach of a free people who are down on their knees
Blind to the few who are pulling all the strings

I was brought up in a nation that I love with all my heart
But I have so much hate for what it's became since the start

A country that's gone rampant with crooked politicians
Their personal agendas, backroom-deals
I don't know what's real

I won't pledge my allegiance to some flag that I don't even know
What it stands for or what it means
It's the single reason some people aren't free

I won't pledge my allegiance to some man who I don't even know
Tread lightly, speak softly, fall in-line

We preach of a free people who are down on their knees
Blind to the few who are pulling all the strings
I will use my own mind, I will commit thought crime
I will not let you tread on me
Track Name: Sick Of It
What do you stand for
And who will you fight
What of your own
Will you sacrifice

You gotta give it your everything
Or else you'll come out with nothing
Well that's what I've been left with
So now I'll search through the wreckage

We've all been through too much of this
To throw our hands up and call it all quits

You get out what you put in
So don't come and tell me that you're struggling

We're sick of your excuses
We're here for retribution
You're done tearing down what I love
Last time we're picking it up

We're sick of your excuses
We're here for retribution
You're done tearing down what we love
Last time we're picking it up
Track Name: Slampiece
You're stuck in a cycle of only hating yourself
Too afraid of your faults, can't ask anybody for help
A thirst for attention that's only ruining esteem
Your dependency on others is whats sickening me

I'll sit here crossing my fingers hoping for the best
You return to yourself and lay that fake one to rest
How could you forget what all we went through
If you just came by, I wouldn't know you

I don't know you, I don't care to
You're not the same friend I once knew

You're just another slampiece
Stay away from me and my friends
You're just another slampiece
Never wanna see your face here again

I don't know you, I don't care to
You're not the same friend I once knew
Lost all self-control
Forgot how much you're worth
You're so scared and wanting
Cutting yourself short

You're just another slampiece, nobody cares about you
You're just another slampiece, nobody cares in this room

I don't know you
Track Name: Cop Song
Doing what because you can
You're a sad excuse for a grown man

Is no honor, no respect
You're only in it for the check

You break his rights, you beat his wife
All because he isn't white

Persecute me for my age
What I wear, or what I say

Rapists, dealers, murderers, thieves
Harass me while they run free

You serve the rich, and put down the poor
You run this town, need not say more

You self-righteous, self-serving
Piece of...
Track Name: Replica
I'm not like you, I can't stand you
You don't control me, I have my own dreams

I will never wake up and think to myself
"I was a better man the day before
I was a better man the day before"

I will never give up, never give in
I will grow as a person, I refuse to fit in
I will however be the exception to a generation
No longer stereotyped, I've chosen my own path

I won't push that same hatred you push on people everyday
Just because they're not some replica of yourself or your beliefs
Your blatant prejudice and discrimination is something that I just can't handle
I'm right here and all I see is an ignorant bigot staring back at me

You think because you believe it that you're the right one
Can't stand others' opinions because they voice their own thoughts
You're not always so right, you need to listen
Maybe you'll learn that, it comes from reason

Open your mind
