Hidden agendas Informing the world of made up facts you use to push your views With tireless effort You see nothing wrong to mislead millions to their foreseen doom This war machine fueled only by lies Forcing skeptics to run for their lives With tireless effort, endless ammunition A cycle of hate with non-stop repetition I call bullshit on it fucking all And you should too before its all gone They’re just lying to steal the world
Veins getting tighter Eyes going blinder It tries to take me but I just won't let go I won't go I've been abusing My wrath consumes me And in this darkness I will never let go I won't go
I want to see a blade shoved through your face See strange fluid all over the place All we want is eyeball gore right now! I want to see what's under the patch I want to know what one looks like detached All we want is eyeball gore right now! Please please I’ll take anything Make me heave in my mouth today Please please I’ll take anything I want to see one stuck on a spike I want to watch one crushed by a bike All we want is eyeball gore right now! Surgically cut one slowly in half Violently show one getting stabbed All we want is eyeball gore right now!
You crossed the line in the sand too many times With no regard for no one but you So why should I give a fuck When you push all your luck and burn every bridge you've came to Keep stepping close keep stepping close You have no idea how close you’re getting To something you’d rather not be partaking If you don't back up soon It’s going to roll right over you You’re toast You better back up fast Or this round of shit talking may be your last. He’s close to toast! You just can’t slide out this time It’s too late your ass has been warned He’s close to toast Nobody’s bailing you out And this time there’s gonna be war!
Bet on Black 00:25
It wont take to long It wont be late For you to feel Something you’ll hate You should have heard your friend’s advice This final time you roll the dice My bets on the next thing you’ll see will have to be black
Sometimes I can’t get up To face the day Some folks just wont let up And keep bothering me I live by my own rules which may bother some Just because I’m not like you doesn’t mean that I’m dumb I’d rather just set a fire and be left alone I’m a miserable failure That's what I’m told Miserable failure Much too old Miserable failure I don't know why Miserable failure until I die
It’s bad news for all Everything’s trashed You can’t escape When the skull wants to thrash Look out above Look out behind The skull’s throwing anything That he feels like He’s lost all control Who is the living skull?
Loaded weapon that you’re holding in your hand is made for killing There couldn’t be a single other purpose You’ve pledged an oath so put your money where your mouth is A specialty that costs Everyone a lot of money In greed we trust
Glocking Out 00:11
I know it's coming, the office talks That's why today I packed a heavy-duty lunch Gun to my head, management's dead, I quit.
Rat Shit 01:41
Out all night searching for the lucky pick The one to pay for his sins This won't be his first time Randomly chosen by this lunatic Then the real hell begins For no reason why A violent attack Eaten alive by rats They rip and tear and gnaw right through the bone You scream but you're all alone With nowhere to go Struggling to survive, a frivolous fight Millions of rats bury you alive Handcuffed and gagged deep in this sinister pit Now you've become…. He's the prime suspect on those coppers list But there's just no evidence This won't be his last time It's been too long he won't stop doing this A deranged killer hell-bent On turning humans to rat shit
U lock that bike cop Because kick stands suck U lock that bike cop This officers fucked U lock the bike cop Show him the deal U lock that bike cop Cause shit just got real
Broken bottles in the street History we won't repeat Broken Bottles We're pouring out vodka like spit We won't get drunk On your bullshit
Here they are lined up waiting to consume A day masked in kindness and giving for you A day named black gets darker each year Trampling the weak for the very best deal The best spot in line They'll wait in the cold The doors get dismantled The hour is now You must step aside Or you will get trampled The gift of punishments all that's dispersed The weak fall to the side While hundreds lay hurt A stampede of bargains, discounting compassion Each man for himself for the very best cash in It’s that time of year I must be the one Who gives them the most Step in the way Of the hunt for deals And you will be toast
Spend the rest of my life waiting for death I don't give a fuck either way what's coming next It can't come fast enough please God take me out If given the option I would of opted out I'm already at my end there's no doubt If given the option I would of opted out You can't save me I would of opted out I won't save me You must think that I'm sick praying for death I don't give a fuck I've lived long enough show me what's next Bored to death!
Class Holes 01:39
Everyone's lazy that makes way less than you Abuse the wealth they work to produce Indignant warfare Some families fight to feed three out of five No equal pay with prices on the rise Can they survive? Please take a second before you wine and dine to watch the lower class die Impoverished families all hopes on the decline watch them die With empty pockets the workforce marches on Into the depths of class holes and beyond Indignant warfare We will survive! Please take a second before you wine and dine to watch the lower class die Impoverished families all hopes on the decline watch them die
Obsolete Man 01:38
Literature is all off limits Complete liquidation No God, no religion Punished by execution You are condemned as an obsolete man You have no function You are condemned as the obsolete man Meet your destruction
Nameless 01:00
Brainwash you to wear bombs and to attack You have to know that no God thanks it's right To murder helpless people, to end their lives Brainwash you to wear bombs and to attack
All day long you sit and play Hoping to block out reality In that world you are the king But the truth is more disgusting Every hour that passes is fixed On getting passed level six The worlds hard to endure So you hide behind closed doors Exit the game! The screens glow is your only friend This real life you can’t comprehend A sad case, a common condition As you sit in your own made prison Eye fixed into a permanent gaze Trapped in your pity inflicted maze
Your kids a dickhole
I cast my ballot things will change this time This vote will really benefit my life It seems you are about to walk into a patriotic shock
Bill of fights The fights we've gotta win Bill of fights The walls are closing in Some time, we gotta make a change Today, things can't stay the same Move on from yesterday's mistakes Ball a fist and do what it takes We can't let it end this way The profit from war and poverty We'll make a list of what we gotta do Now you know, we're coming for you! Bill of fights The fights we've gotta win Bill of fights The walls are closing in
I got some champagne You got some some wine I say we have us a sensual time I got some candles You got a rose Lets annoy all those that turn up their nose They just can’t handle seductive expression They may think its gross when we teach them this lesson I wont cross the line Let your body be free Let’s harass the world sensually
Just Say Go 00:50
Maybe you were brought up a certain way That makes you not want to fulfill each day Or perhaps scared of what you’ll find Just know, I’m urging you to just let go You don't need to care at all You should learn to just say go! Would you rather sit? Just go do something It’s easy to complain rather than create Get off your ass you’re in control
I’m not going to apologize You know that you all deserved it I never promised to keep promises There’s only some that are worth it My advice to you Is give me a second chance It takes a while to get started And all that song and dance Give me four more years It’s all I can do Blood and tears I’ll give to you Four more years It’s all that I need Cash and fear To fuel this greed What I really need now Is just a little more time? To make the wrong decisions To put us years behind Four more years It’s all that I need Cash and fear To fuel this greed


IRON REAGAN’S Relapse debut ‘The Tyranny Of Will’ is a 24 song wrecking ball of hardcore- punk/thrash fury. Fronted by the venomously lyical Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste), on paper IRON REAGAN is a Richmond, VA supergroup (the band also features Phil Hall of Municipal Waste, Cannabis Corpse, etc as well as Ryan Parrish of Darkest Hour together with members of Mammoth Grinder). In practice IRON REAGAN are WAY more than just a supergroup project---they have toured the world several times over levelling audiences with their furious live show. This is a fully formed raging band that have delivered one of the heaviest hardcore records of the year that is guaranteed to be on the top of both metalheads’ and punk rockers’ year end lists.

Now, with their recent signing to metal powerhouse Relapse Records, the hardcore thrash quintet are ready to take their bruising antics to the next level. ... more
