Track Name: Don't Drink the Water with Ice That Came From the Freezer
In and out of your mind
I’ve seen some things that are gross
What the hell have you been drinking
Get that shit out of your head

The start of disaster
Will end in devastation
FREEZER

It looks like liquid ecstasy
We get high off of this shit
Druggies can’t sell it anyway
‘Cause everyone can make it

Don't drink the water
With ice that came
from the freezer

Plans are surfacing my head
As a way for revenge and earn me some cash

Somebody had put it in there
I have tasted it and was shit
Could be different with dry ice
But it is a plea to death

Seams, Schemes, Creep
I’m hooked on this drug forever


It can't be meth
Will I be gone
Or will I live

Don’t drink the water with ice that came from the freezer
Track Name: Fermentation of Fatal Alcohol
The death from ethanol
Cataclysmic paranoia
The brain becomes weaker
And assumes self demise.
With my product of poison
It will fulfill the purpose
To Cleanse All Life
All to those thou drink to live
Isn’t much of a man who loves
Without passion or social life
Are considered evil humans
Brewed by the mighty hand
The pure soul of holy wisdom
With help from the reaper will
Guide This Dying Race

My words state
That all humans
Are sure to
Destruct by themselves
Lived in Earth
will soon decay
By the kills
We have committed
Historians foreseen future events
The human race might not exist
Religion state there is no purity
As human life will never reach perfection

No more will man face a great threat but this day
As I will bring forth thy power to conquer
The violence people have prayed for prolonged time

I shall not procrastinate
To begin this brew
Send forth my ingredients
For fermentation of new life
The process is long going
When it’s completed I
Will Cleanse All Life
All the gallons is poured down
Barrels are ready for transport
The amount to fill up England
Will reach as far as Australia
Feel the blood of thy Lord
Rushing through your veins
As Judgment Day comes to
Take Back Thy Soul

Now this what I wanted
I can feel the control
You keep the drink
And feel the presence of God

Know when you feel clustered
It is me behind your head
I am controlling the life force
With the movement of my fingers

The evil are now the feared
Cower away from the light of day
And hide in the darkest alleyway
Feared that they are chosen.
No matter how far you are
Or how pure you think you are
I will force you through the gateway
Where the good rise over you
Track Name: Blackout
Victims of our enemies
The word is out with sorrow
The long fear has manifest
Another prohibition
Raise your glasses in the air
We shall continue the brew
And forget the law otherwise
We are the shit

I won’t
Be sober

Struggling through the day
It is not what we want happen
Losing to pointless amendments
They will try and terminate us
The battle seems endless
After we defy the dead lies
We are forever in peace
But they take our power away

Fuck this shit I’m fed up with the pigs and more
I’m just a peaceful man with my brew fuck off
All conspiracies start with lies
Laws that everyone objects to
We the people should have their rights
But it seems useless
In the end we’re nothing but fossils
Ashes or complete waste to our world
No type of remorse to the human race
Life is nothing without our meaning

Passion is holding me together
But I feel broken
I must continue or I will wither
Away

How could they have done this
Other nations have their rules
But our laws restrict access
I’m starting to question all of them
Is there a need to ban brewing
It’s a sacred art never to be slain
If you continue with this plan
We will place you under citizen arrest
Struggling through the day
It is not what we want happen
Losing to pointless amendments
They will try and terminate us
The battle seems endless
After we defy the dead lies
We are forever in peace
But they take our power away

I am an insane motherfucker

There is nothing to fear
But take a note on your e-reader
No hands on my beer
Track Name: Murder at a Hardcore Party
Murder
Come to the party with free drinks
Free music, and no rsvp
All in good time we live tonight
Until when death moves on us
Party
Dancing along the heavy riffs
Until the one slips the cyanide
We only have several minutes
To live like we’re not restricted
Our spirit will rise from the graves
There’s nothing that’ll change
Not even when the metal dies
I’ll come back to reunite it
When I demand you sing people sing
You scream your lungs out
When I demand you dance people dance
You mosh until you bleed out

The freedom, of life, is right here
I don’t demand, you join me
Free to dance with your heart
We might not last beyond tonight
I see it in everyone’s eyes
Anxiously dancing 'til the end
To savor humanity one last time
We might not last beyond tonight

We keep partying like it was Halloween
We’ll continue until July 4th comes
But that’ll stop us from having fun
As we walk forth in making music
We are not denial for who we are
Never play for anything but awareness
‘Cause the more people know us
The better we party every day
The crowd started getting weary
It is taking an effect by this hour
This shouldn’t happen this soon
There’s a mistake in my mixture
C’mon people please stay alive
Don’t lose your wake on my floor

Dead bodies are lying in front of my stage
I can’t seem to wake them up any longer
Disappoint on this agony I seen
Sinister thing I’ve committed for God
I won’t take my leave until they rise to Heaven
Track Name: Sludgepit
Here we are again, back in the hardcore scene
Nothing’s what it seems or us being clean
Bruises and such won’t hurt our self-esteem
We are stronger then a pop scene kid that bleeds
Here to redeem in the mosh pit with me
Almost looks like everyone’s drunk on mead
But no bullshit because we’re not pussies or freaks
Or any sort of that nature since I’m a fucking geek
There’s no honor of me attempting to spit
I gave it up for better things than a shit food dish
But enough about me, let me take a dip
My brain is overheating and reaching its limit
I just want to throw myself in the pit
That’s how I relax better than eating fish
Releasing my voice to the crowd with
Everyone that wants to throw-down shit

Is there anything else to say
We are pretty notorious
For the good deeds we do
But not everyone agrees
We have haters as well
Trying to break us up
But we handle it differently
Without the use of drama

You better run for your lives
Pop kids are not safe in this room
They will fear for their condition
Or they face doom on the sludgepit
My brothers will jump on the stage
To avoid painless experience
And jump towards the crowd
Now prepare the galloping breakdown

Is there anything else to say
We are pretty notorious
For the good deeds we do
But not everyone agrees
We have haters as well
Trying to break us up
But we handle it differently
Without the use of drama
Track Name: Intangible Inequality
I feel like prejudice has flipped around in the local music industry
Not necessarily the good genre is good spirit to the band members
You play at nothing but bars and you try to make a profit out of it
While we play hardcore music with no money ‘cause we fucking want to
The philosophy states that the stage belongs to both bands and spectators
We open to those who want to join the fun while you stop those who try
Making friends is part of what we do to spread the music scene
You deny me as I am a nobody of talent while my friends think different

This is our way of
This is our one life

This is the life I stand until I lose my hearing
It is all right I sacrifice this to live philosophy
I live for them I will despise you
I had enough of your shit and move on with my life

It seems we have a ghost in the mists
Intangible through negative emotions
Should we have immigrants play for money
Don’t give me the idea or I’ll go insane

This is the life I stand until I lose my hearing
It is all right I sacrifice this to live philosophy
I live for them I will despise you
I had enough of your shit and move on with my life

Stare down at the ground today
It’ll be you in all end of life
It won’t matter what we’ve done
Yet it’ll be stained in our brain
You have yet to see the truth
Because you haven’t crossed the gateway
I still have yet to crossover
But I am leading the race to it
Track Name: Chuck Testa Got Nothin' On This
I only have one fucking thing to say
You are the freak of nature alive
Making dead caucuses look alive
What the hell are you thinking
I see spectral forms all the time
You won’t rid them with taxidermy
It is something nature intended
No one can bend the laws of nature
I can see spirits only ‘cause my brains works like that
Or I used something to see them fuck it
Those grim eyes tell me your life
You lost some pet you cared about
But didn’t gave a fuck what you did
So you rebuild it to look alive but dead
I don’t need the physical bodies
Dependent by the ghosts that I saw
Contacted them to know who I’m talking
Can you motherfuckers do that

We’re the ones who see them all
Towns of ghosts they’re here to stay
We deny the practice of taxidermy
It is forbidden to the good man
We’re the ones who see them all
Towns of ghosts they’re here to stay
Hey Cooper tell me something
You think this is devil magic?

I’m sure the ghosts are haunting you
Suggesting the cease of reanimation
You’re not a Wiccan in practice
Of necromancy or in alchemy
How much longer are you sane
Speak
What if I’m the ghost you worked on me
Would you dare continue this shit

Are you fucking better than me
I’ll speak why I’m better than you

Being on acid let’s you see shit
Or punched in the head during a mosh pit
You mellow out with Vicodin on hand
While hallucinating you’re stuck in quicksand
You want the ghosts away with a charm
Physical forms of life you are still harmed
Nothing left you try dope to relax
Then you OD’d now you are on your ass
What is it you want from us
Notoriety or a name on the internet
What you’d expect when you advertise
On TV when everyone is watching you
Society accepted you for a fucked profession
Yet we’re the ones with the talent
Because we are labeled as deviant
So what the fuck does that make you

We’re the ones who see them all
Towns of ghosts they’re here to stay
We deny the practice of taxidermy
It is forbidden to the good man
We’re the ones who see them all
Towns of ghosts they’re here to stay
Hey fucker tell me something
You think this is devil magic?

I’ll wait for demise you will rise above
Society doesn’t want me so they’re stuck with
The mask of corporations

You’re stuck in American Capitalism

We’re the ones who see them all
Towns of ghosts they’re here to stay
We deny the practice of taxidermy
It is forbidden to the good man
We’re the ones who see them all
Towns of ghosts they’re here to stay
Everyone tell me
You think this is devil magic?
Track Name: Disclosed Labor for Assassinations
Let’s get something straight in the records
I don’t like you I’m sure feeling’s mutual
Even if I gave a shit you probably won’t
But I’m indifferent to your opinions

You walk with your gang members
I hope you walk tall above them
You’ll execute whoever threatens you
I think I like to challenge your motive
Fuck with me will be your last mistake

Words with action is not a threat
But the promise of your downfall
Taking hostages will piss me off
Especially if it’s someone I care for
You would dare set off my rage
Just to set a point across me
I may have no experience of death
But I’m sure he won’t take me now

There’s no honor of killing innocent people
And worse to torture defenseless women
You disgust me with your very existence
Your souls rots bad like trapped Gods
The blood shows you are no match
Your pawns lie dead by my wrath you freed
Think it’s time I take her back to my hands
And repeat her events towards you tenfold
Track Name: Gretel the Hate Moshing Rabbit
Hey you little birds
You liking this morning
Playing on the ground
And not sky flying
Why are you here
Spinning in my dirt
I’ll kick shit in the air
So you better fuck off

I’m just a punk-kid rabbit
Who is restricted on the ground
The only one who can fuck dirt
Is me and my own family
Ha birds take this
Fuck with me twice
Wrong thought to make here
Is getting me on my bad side

I think humans are watching us
They’re thinking like what the fuck

I’m running back to my hole
My brain is deoxygenated blood
I’m losing thought of my actions
And becoming a simple dumb rabbit
There’s a reason I’m hardcore
Other rabbits are born to envy me
And I want to live with the humans since this is good music
Track Name: Pop Culture Massacre
What is everyone’s deal with pop music
Set for brainwashing men and women who lives
Is there a reason why people act like famous people do
Especially this ungrateful pattern
Pop music leads to questionable decisions
Changing society to be more disturbing
I doubt humanity gains appreciation
So I’ll morph my world to something old

Remember the good times when we’re punished for back talking
And the Christian Church were the biggest industry in America
The pop scene ruined it for the worst in high school and on
Corrupted from TV starts that absolutely deal with nothing in life

I would say not all souls are tainted
But who am I to speak for the wagon

Oh my god, I can’t even
What are you talking about
Do you really hate pop music
How selfish can you be. Ha
You know what I’m talking about
Society accepts stupidity over logic
Other than Greed we will fall as superior beings
Because we’re ironically commit to suicide

Remember the sun being innocent
We take granted for life we live
And the moon being so beautiful
Now it signifies fear and doom
An assumed pointless battle
Of what is right for our society
Truth is there’s no right nor wrong
But the events that shines our eyes

Stars are more set off more than stoners
A blind spot that consumes survival
Dependent by others to hold their weight
The only war they’ll survive is against their addictions
Track Name: Example of Misery Towards Our Region
I’m tired, of this valley, and the misery
Escape, is all I think, and being emo
I have no life here, and no one else does
The sight is eating all my energy

All of this, talking, isn’t it, peachy
That I can’t, behave, to destroy, the walls
Nature has, hold us, to condemn, the hate
We won’t be, hating, if there is, no walls

Research has proven we’re in misery
From a land not of this origin
A nation with different laws
We should be in our own world
Murder, robbery, and fires rise
This town isn’t worth to anyone
The coal mines were our only thing
Now we are the ashes that they lay

No life; in this hellhole
The lifes; there’s no hope of overcoming

In life
We are
Peaceful children want
From all of this hate

We are lost in the abyss of sorrow
There is only one thing we have left
The local music hardcore scene
‘Cause we’re examples of misery towards our region
We are lost in the abyss of sorrow
There is only one thing we have left
The local hardcore music scene
‘Cause we’re examples of misery towards our region
All the things I once knew
Are nothing but memory fragments
Everything is a lie now
For we are in a miserable region

Fucking bastards

There is nothing more that can be done
I shall rest in an indefinite sleep
Be the overseer or a regional God
And nobody is going to stop me ‘cause everyone needs this in their lives for fuck sake
Track Name: About a Cutthroat Druggie B*tch
I see through the common life of Ray
An ordinary working-class citizen
Through his eyes he sees a woman
And trembles down to his knees
But she is not what she looks
She devotes her life to drugs
Dope crack and even acid
And vile to stain pure diamonds

He can’t even ask her love
She is so dark why stay here
He has no choice lust blinds him
He’s becoming a man of sin
Losing his job to be with her
Entering a void he cannot escape
I’m afraid he’ll be corrupted soon
To give up everything for her

The shadows consume his conscience
It tells the truth for who she is

There must be a way to flee away
Losing every ounce of his humanity
Trying to find a solution to the conflict
But it is all failing
I show guidance to the troubled man
All lost souls have a thing in common
They are all sacrificed to the realm of Oblivion
He can’t runaway from her or me
Decides to make a path of wisdom
And forego the ultimate sacrifice
It’s the only way to purify his soul again
As I layout the needed relics
And her life shortly becomes an end
His world is sanctified from another rotted soul

All I wanted is love
I cannot deny the sins I’ve made
I still feel love for her but
She’s a fucking, druggie, bitch
Track Name: Entwined, Lurid Empathy
Every time I see your face
It reminds me who you are
And every time I think of you
I just wish you were out of me!

I don't know why I'm still attached
By the beauty which you don't hold
And my love that you don't deserve
Or anyone else's for that matter
By the window there lays two sides
One that shines the life for you
And the one that never sees the sun
You are that side where it remains dark

I knew we dated that was not love it was different in history one where I can't change
It darkened my life knowing you're the fog between now and history that covered the trails

Many things changed between you and I
A woman who doesn't know what to do
And a man who figured out his life
There's no connection to be made again
I'm tired of watching you fail
Self destructing your life
I don't want any part of that
Yet I can't stay away from you

The blood stains on your clothes
A dispute that ends in tragedy
The only thing that you succeeded
Is make me hate you even more

As I walk down nature's alleyway
The open roads will clear my head

You don't care about me anymore
Lied about the key details of you
I cannot forgive for what you've done
But I can't remove you from my brain
We are not alone with this pain
Other men has suffered the same pain
As we walk down nature's alleyway
The open roads will clear our heads

Entwined Lurid Empathy
Track Name: Doomsday Savior
I had enough of this life
I’m almost at the finish line

We are falling apart with the world
Sins and chaos are one with evil
Conspired to halt my exhibition
From crossing that one gateway
Let me through
I’ll use force
Don’t fuck with me
My patience is thin

Will I become one with the void
If the spirits devour my soul
I’m worried for my selfish damned self
I should be caring for others
Instead I planned for domination
Now this planet is in damnation
And I’m not ready for ultimate power

All I see is death eating ghosts
All I feel is the void eating me

The only I have is music in the end
Listening everyday to ease the pain
I’m guessing they are our heroes
For the easy wait until zero hour

I’m not worth the world
I have lost my mind
Track Name: Dreams of the Premonition
I’ve been witnessing a false sense of life

Where have I woken up to
A dream or false reality
Nothing is real to me
And I feel pain everywhere
Humans have become vile
Raging wars with selfish intents
Disregarding the citizens
For their care in this world
Corporations are more greedy
Lower quality products they sell
And make higher profits in office
To allow the public to die from disease
Hell has risen over to the surface
Voices speak to me clearly
Allowing me to be consumed
Into a higher form of spiritual life

The voice of God approaches me that I am dead from all the substances
He says even a man of sin who is forgiven and risen to the holy land

My life ended with a bottle in my hand
Fell into an eternal coma to no wake
Death was at my face with another being
I closed my eyes and felt God’s hands

What about the people I knew
What will happen to their lives
They will continue life as is
But I’ll be watching over them
I was given something special
No other angel has received before
The ability to walk upon Earth
As tangible as my destiny lives
I was given the gift to choose fate
To the men and women when they die
I am the chosen one by the divines
To weep the most tainted souls alive
By my good deeds I have did
In the mortal world when I was alive
I can walk along with Jesus
And the girl I’ve loved for all my life

My life ended with a bottle in my hand
Fell into an eternal coma to no wake
Death was at my face with another being
I closed my eyes and felt God’s hands
It doesn’t matter what I face in this plain field
I have suffered enough to earn my place
No mortal could ever doubt my expectations
Like what path with our beloved planet fall to

I dreamed events that became reality
Illogical becomes logic in my eyes
As I can perform wonders to those
Who have earned the right for passage
I will love you until the end
I know I wasn’t clean when I lived
But my forgiveness was answered and accepted

My life ended with a bottle in my hand
Fell into an eternal coma to no wake
Death was at my face with another being
I closed my eyes and felt God’s hands
It doesn’t matter what I face in this plain field
I have suffered enough to earn my place
No mortal could ever doubt my expectations
Like what path with our beloved planet fall to
I know I wasn’t a man of purity
That you lived to hate me eternally
Ever since the innocent had occurred
But I have cleaned up my act for you
I believe that you are my soul mate
I cannot cease my dreams about you
Everything I did is for your forgiveness
‘Cause I don’t want to forget your face
