1.
Plague, anguish, pain It kills to breath, toxins course through my veins Welcome to the tragic end of all life Construct a perfect place Created living hell Cannot save a dying world A dying world No way to save a dying world Decay, suffering Chemical blast, poison air seals our fate Witness the extinction of humankind! Construct a perfect place Created living hell Cannot save a dying world A dying world
2.
Fuck up your parents cut a check I bet you would never expect Tonight I’d blast that privileged fucking face right off your head and watch it Burn Watch it Burn Don’t give a fuck if they catch me I won’t get off I’m not wealthy Chicken shits like you hide in your parent’s pocketbook and never Learn You never learn Kill and rape, just pay ‘em off Immoral checks don’t bounce at all Corruption profits from disgrace and money buys the human race It’s sick You’re fucked you brainless trust fund kid My blowtorch says you burn
3.
Shut down From constant pressure The blinding realization There’s no way around it They've already won They've already won again   Fucked by this grim business Victimized by business plans Bought This grim business Pave the way for bigger scams   And I think about what’s already done And I’m sure the worst is still yet to come Is there even a choice for what’s wrong or right?   What’s wrong or right?
4.
Sick of this place I want to be dead with my friends Sick of this world I want to be dead with my friends Sick of being stuck in a monotonous pace Sick of all the words coming out of your face Sick of my life I want to be dead with my friends How long should I pretend to care? How long am I stuck living here? How long should I keep going on? Keep going on and on? Sick of this place I want to be dead with my friends Sick of this world I want to be dead with my friends Sick of those always avoiding the truth Constantly force me to listen to you Sick of my life I want to be dead with my friends How long should I pretend to care? How long am I stuck living here? How long should I keep going on? Keep going on and on? If everyone is a puppet How am I the only one that sees the strings? How long will this last? How long should I pretend to care? How long am I stuck living here? How long should I keep going on? How long how long how long?

No Sell 00:12
You try to take me down when I start to make my comeback?! No sell!
6.
The losers of a lost war Strangely glorified Reminiscing a force of hate Under the cities guise Condition evolution It’s time to move on Condition Evolution Get up or get gone Condition evolution It’s critical as can be This condition is your admission to forcing change Quit holding onto the past Make progress last! There’s better ways to look back Disguising your hatred In plain sight everyday Glorifying ignorance Cluelessly mocking me
7.
Strangers suggesting I keep my voice down Just because it’s 5 am Not my problem or fault you picked this place to live Fuck the neighbors Fuck your yard The more that you complain The more we’ll go hard We know you're the one that calls the cops Then politely waves to our face Not my problem We’ll be the last ones to leave this place
8.
Crawling on hands and knees Dragging the liquids that you need Hanging from ceiling beams Proving the power of the beast Power of the skull Forcing all to celebrate Balancing things with no haste To prove now once and for all You’ll feel the power of the skull
9.
Here, there’s no false gods No need to feel wrong No guilt to be had A place you belong A place with respect The pits our church It shall bring you peace You still may get hurt Don't fall to your knees Stand up The cross over ministry Here, you’ll still feel blessed Through love all around Your feet still moving Your face in the ground This place gets wrecked The pits our church Violence our communion We’re baptized in dirt
10.
More War 01:36
More war more war Non-stop catastrophe Net profits soar Our business strategy More war more war Let’s make more guns Let’s charge the poor They'll never learn More war more war We’ll bet your life It’s right on time We live you die
11.
Religious tyrant mobs Bow or die is the law The corpses burn Forced in a false belief Slaves in a life of grief Had nowhere to turn… Death squads stomp Crushing the skulls of them all Blood-soaked boots Torture, murder, the perfect choice for… Demonic militants Mass murder evident The corpses burn The innocent now prey Put to death for glory’s sake Had nowhere to turn… Death squads stomp Crushing the skulls of them all Blood-soaked boots Torture, murder, the perfect choice for… Blatant Violence!

Mom’s on the Internet
13.
Body outlined in chalk Guaranteed not to talk Witnessed a murder spree Can’t let you convict me Your testimony’s going down with you to the grave I made sure of it just in case No one’s gonna put me back into a cage I think it’s for the best…bleed the fifth Shouldn’t have run your mouth You can’t hide from me now Those pigs are none the wiser And your fertilizer Your testimony’s going down with you to the grave I made sure of it just in case No one’s gonna put me back into a cage Especially you Bleed The Fifth!
14.
Megachurch 01:36
A massive system of fraud Built upon the word of God Gospel of prosperity Just keep sending in your money A holy pyramid scheme That will not submit to anything They’re costing us millions So they can live in their mansions We all turn a blind eye Their humbleness is a lie As they light all their candles They're ripped apart by scandal How quickly that they forget They’re supposed to help the poor and the sick A holy pyramid scheme That will not submit to anything On the podium they speak About giving a hand to the weak Liquidate their assets Their separation of classes But they keep giving them more More and more Evangelical eyesore
15.
Shame Spiral 01:36
Shame spiral spinning out of control It happened again It’s spinning around Building and building Bringing me down Shame Spiral is never letting go Shame spiral spinning out of control It happened again Continuous spins Spinning and spinning Making you sick Shame spiral is never letting go Politely retract the statements I’ve made Don’t reenact the things you’ve seen Swear to yourself it’s the lowest you will go
16.
Dogsnotgods 01:18
I have a whole lot of faith in my heart And I have a reason to believe I found an eternal sanctuary And it’s been right in front of me I feel the love, I feel the freedom I’ve seen all there is to see I feel the spirit, I don't get judged It comes unconditionally Dogs not gods The only time that I really have to kneel down Is when it’s time to fill the dish I’m not talking about the ones they’re passing around That makes these pastors filthy rich
17.
I’m running for my life They won’t stop until I die But there it is, glowing It gives me powers they can’t contest Now that I have it they’re knowing The hunters have become the hunted
18.
Racing towards Armageddon We’re going to make it so No matter how you twist your fate It’s plain to see we all gotta go Heading towards extinction We’re gonna make it fast The bad news is we’ll miss it The good news is we’re not gonna last It’s bleak and fucked Can we help ourselves? Is it hopeless yet? Only time will tell
