Track Name: Chemical X
You don't have to get high to have a skull full of smoke
Don't have to drink hard liquor for your words to sound like a joke
It must not have been hard to ruin this, too
When you're so concerned with telling everyone else what to do.
Relying on weakness to defend your own strength
Jumping at the chance to call out the next to flake
Your mission's just a vicious addiction
Trading one crutch for another.
Fuck you.
Track Name: Good Will?
You paint your mission on the walls and on your face, assuming blindfolds shield our eyes from your disgrace. Patting yourself on the back for humble charity, while diminishing the people's worth to merely pennies.

Build them up to drop them in doubt

You're just the same as every other corporation, a creative angle to make people stairs for your expensive shoes to step on. If you truly cared about fulfillment and opportunity, then there wouldn't be such a harsh discrepancy.

You thrive off of lies- Misleading,
Straying from your motive- It's impulsive.
Exploiting the ones who need for your own greed.
Providing nothing for your own profit- Purely pitiful.

And you feel like such a fucking hero, don't you?
What's more pathetic? Misleading? Impulsive? Greedy? Pitiful?
Track Name: Enough.
Eyes like wolves hunting innocent prey

Seeking out victims to play in your game
Manipulate to fill inside where you've dug your own void
Memories are creeping, and stalking, and haunting
Unfriendly reminders of fiendish behaviors still

Fingertips drag across flesh
Like fragments chisel in a headstone
Invading the hairs on the skin
Crawling up the spine, consuming the mind
Doubting myself because I didn't fight or scream
Keeping your transgression buried underneath
I've done enough believing in the devil
That I forgot who he was after.

Selfish ways have become sadistic
I wasn't born to die a statistic
Silenced by shame, I've hid in secret
I wasn't born to die a statistic
Questioned what I should have done different
I wasn't born to die a statistic
This isn't my guilt to live with
I wasn't born to die a statistic
I wasn't born to die a statistic
I wasn't born to die a statistic
