Good Lookin' Out
Thinking back on what we had
want to give in, want to give up
despair washes over you
where do you go, what will you do
your mind is racing in a million directions all at once
where will you turn
you're not in this all alone
just look around, and you'll see
the answers right before your eyes
I'm here for you, and you for me
It's hard to open up, just try and you'll see
True friends will always be there

Thinking back on what we had
all those times we shared
all those times good and bad
our growing friendship has formed a bond
Never ending

You were there through it all, now it's my turn
there's no doubt, good lookin' out
when life's not fair
True friends will always be thereback to top
Call to Arms
Another cause, heed the call, everybody rally 'round
don't contemplate if it's right, just follow the crowd
but don't you dare disagree
'cause they'll question your loyalty
their idea of comraderie is to heed their call to arms
who appointed you the moral judge
pointing your fingers at everyone
don't pull that guilt trip bullshit on me
nothing you say or do can decide for me
So go ahead, keep your rules, i'll choose my own wars
your accusations and harsh words can't do me any harm
'cause i don't believe in blind loyalty
that's just mob mentality
I will answer what's right for me
And not your call to armsback to top
Blown Away
Down is where they want to see you
Down is where they want to keep you
Down, somber and silent
Faith is used against you
Faith is a line that they feed you
Faith is only a word
Don't believe their empty lies
Fear is how they grip you
Fear is fixed inside you
Fear of unacceptance
Same old story will we ever learn
Fall for the cliches all over again
With a calculating coldness it never ends
Their indifference just blows me away
Down is where they want to see you
Down is where they want to keep you
Down, somber and silent
Faith is used against you
Faith is a line that they feed you
Faith is only a word
You can only save yourself
Fear is how they grip you
Fear is fixed inside you
Fear of unacceptance
I can tell you what's at stake
'Till I'm blue in the face
Your blind acceptance blows me away
What is it that we haven't said or haven't done
Or are you turning a deaf ear to these words
You sit unknowing with your pathetic apathy
You may have grown to accept this, but not me
You shut your eyes to the truth
But I've seen the evil that men do
The answer staring you right in the face
Another generation fooled
It blows me away
Blows me away
Blows me away
Blows me away
Blows me away
Blown Awayback to top
Built to Last
Invest time, invest life
invest it all, reinvent yourself
before you know it
your essence is renewed with something fresh
Your will, your way
will earn respect in your day
let the glory sharpened knife
carve the future of your life
let's not praise the past, just a fact
Built to last
old school or the new
doesn't mean a thing if your heart's not true
greedy ones faded fast, we're here
Built to last
For the fun, not a fad
the love and the truth so powerful
work out the snags of the past
work out the snags that won't last
mistakes have finished my brothers
mistakes will guide all the others
Your will, your way
might shape a better day
eradicate the stagnancy
eradicate it like disease
as we've seen around the world
We won't go away
cause we'll always feel this way
We're here to stay
and our impact will be felt
We won't go away
if we feel it, we feel it
We're here to stay
Built to lastback to top
Just Look Around
The question they keep asking me
how can one so young be so bitter and angry
well, the answer is plain to see
maybe if they wern't so blind they'd see what i see
i see the homeless livin' out on the street
on every corner they're asking for money
i try to help them whenever i can
but sometimes i can't afford to help myself
i see diseases and modern plagues of our times
the greed of our leaders has made them blind
to our problems
they spend millions overseas,
people right here are fightin' wars everyday

I see the whites that hate the blacks
blacks against the jews, race against religion
and the're all too blind to see

When we fight each other it puts all of them at ease
it keeps us so busy, so they can do what they please
election time comes and they're out for votes
that's when you see and hear from them the most
this is what they're calling a democracy
that's just another word for hypocrisy
we keep fallin' for the bait
when we realize, it's always too late

I see the whites that hate the blacks
blacks that hate the jews, brother against brother
and they're all to blind to see

As the rich get richer, the poor goin' hungry
i've seen the toll it takes on the workingman's family
education system that's obsolete
can't hold a kid's interest or keep 'em off the street
see a father's fear, hear a mother's cry
what kind of a nation lets their children die
government's corrupt and full of red tape
then you're gonna ask me why i hate

Why don't you open up your eyes so you can see
open up your ears so you can hear
take a look around and you will find
take a look around and you will find out whyback to top
Let Go
Another time another place
I might have had a smile on my face
this could have been such a beautiful thing
but now it's just a fucking waste of time
We've said what had to be said
the issue's discussed already dead
We're clinging to something
what we don't know
It's about time we just let go

What's the point, why do we bother
just to try and hurt each other
or to try and save part of what was there
put on an act pretend like we care
avoiding the outcome we both know
cut the shit and just let go

All this back and forth
cheap shots no remorse
no chance wounds to mend
when is this all gonna end
All i ever wanted was some fucking peaceback to top
Us Vs. Them
All roads lead the same direction
we all see eye to eye
won't stand for a bad connection
we came to keep things tight
prove this, prove that
proving is nothing
let's all just be ourselves
focused with the right aggression
turn to each other for help
people merge on state of mind from all
different walks of life
don't need any more stupid division
don't need to feel uptight

Brother - I'll always look out for you
if I feel it back
Sister - we'll brave the outside world
off the beaten track
When it's us vs. them
you can always count on me When it's us vs. them
it's a global unity

Open the extended family
the family is growing fast
friendship will transcend the borders
the world is shrinking fast
Cities merge on state of mind
there's nothing wrong with that
don't need any more stupid division
don't fall for their trap

Brother - I'll always look out for you
if I feel it back
Sister - we'll brave the outside world
off the beaten track
When it's us vs. them
you can always count on me When it's us vs. them
it's a global unityback to top
The Bland Within
This is what I am
I cant make it stop
No matter how much I want to change.
This is who I am
And I've made my peace.
Now the boredom can set in
I can't make it go away.
Progress made towards self discovery
Might not be progress at all.
Making light of the banality
Might be the only recourse.
Look out
See life close around you
The routine becomes what you are.
Look out
See all the mistakes
That you'll make a hundred times more.
Look out see life close around you
The routine becomes what you are
Look out see all the mistakes
You'll be making a hundred times
A thousand times
A million times more
This is what I am
I cant make it stop
No matter how much I want to change.
This is who I am
And I've made my peace
Now the boredom can set in
I can't make it go away.
The same old words
The same old voice
The same old options without much choice.
Now you know yourself
Now you see just how fucked up
You're predisposed to be.back to top
Injustice System
Freedom - A right I thought we had
One that no one could take away
But there are those who will try
To rule the lives that you and I choose to lead

We must fight - Injustice system
Have no rights - Injustice system
We must fight - Injustice system
Have no rights - Injustice system

There are those who change the laws
For gain and furthering their needs
A small group possesse the power
A minority dictating what's good for the majority
Money has the real influence
Without it what we say don't make a difference
I won't tell you to give in
But to me there's got to be a better way to fight for our rights
And to have our say
To choose for ourselves
And not be led around blindly on a short leash

We must fight - Injustice system
Have no rights - Injustice system
We must fight - Injustice system
Have no rights - Injustice system

Freedom - A right I'll always have
One that no one can take away
No matter what it is they try
Because the flame of freedom burns deep down inside of meback to top
Potential for a Fall
Here's another tale, a replay of society's failures
out for ourselves, bred to consume in pursuit of wealth
and the ones in charge, once secure show disregard
for future generations who must endure what's left behind

No compassion, no caution, no forethought
Potential for a fall
No forethought, no vision, no future
Potential for a fall
go about our lives as we turn a blind eye
as long as i get mine
potential for a fall
submissive, complacent, sit back and let it slip away
just can't seem to hold it together

And yet we continue with the charade of being individuals
as we get spoon-fed, kept in check by the latest trends
are we that shallow? is getting your groove on all that matters
i'm not asking you to bleed but show consideration please
sit back and let it slip away
We can't seem to hold it together we can't seem to get it rightback to top
Scratch the Surface
Scratch the surface serve a purpose
Scratch the surface don't waste my time

Such an empty life, night after night
All hidden faults, are such a shallow sight

Such simple sheep, herd to the creeps
Beauty is null, barely skin deep

What is the force that drives the superficial
Tell me what keeps their minds remaining little
What is the force that drives the superficial
Tell me what keeps their minds remaining...
So afraid of what they'd see underneath the fantasy
So afraid to actually Scratch the surface.

All mirrors hide... Faillure inside
That's maybe why they take so much

Big money lies, big lyin' eyes
Eye's are the soul of big dollar signsback to top
America
Loyalty, I gave my loyalty
I gave my heart and my soul.
My heart and soul and all I could give
For a reason to live.
Fidelity, always fidelity
Putting everything I was aside
And I tried to be the best in their eyes.
How could they do this
How could they do this
How could they do this to me?
Suffering, the pain and suffering.
Being separate again, separate again
From what I hold dear.
And the shame of the tears
Disappeared, the honors disappeared.
With the betrayal of trust my body and being.
They washed their hands of me
Once and for all.
How could they do this
How could they do this
How could they do this to me?
This statistic wont lay down
Take a number or stand in line
This statistic wants to hear
That they're guilty about their crimes.
This statistic wont lay down
Take a number or stand in line
This statistic wants to hear
That they're guilty about their crimes.

Rat Pack
You wanna jump me in the pack
Rat Pack, rat pack
My crew has got my back
Rat pack, rat pack
Been through this shit before
Rat pack, rat pack
Now you've got a fucking war
Rat pack, rat pack

I got my pride, glory's on my side
I got my pride, glory's on my side

See you alone you start to run
Rat pack, rat pack
Take your chances one on one
Rat pack, rat pack

I got my pride, glory's on my side
I got my pride, glory's on my sideback to top
Sanctuary
This is for the one who saved me
accepts me for who i am, just me
and always gives back tenfold whatever i give
Respect was never ever questioned, every feeling reciprocated
mutual ideals and passion straight from the soul, from my soul
When i'm safely in your arms there i find my sanctuary
help me weather every storm, you're my sanctuary, my true love
There are those who tried to use you
even ones who would abuse you
they never took the time to see what i see
how you're always waiting for me kept me sane while all was crazy
and so i give you what's dearest to me
My true love the very first time you touched my soul
from that day on never want to let you goback to top
My Life
Go to work, go to school
Get an education, so you won_t be a fool
Be a doctor, PHD, all that shit, that's not for me

All my life people tell what to say
This is my life live it my own way

Was so blind could not see
figures of authortity, always standing behind me,
ready to come down on me

All my life people tell what to say
This is my life live it my own wayback to top
Busted
Can somebody tell me why
truth is such a fuckin' lie
close my heart and turn it out
I'm disgusted
so far gone and out of reach
they kick you in the fuckin' teeth
all I wanna know is why
you're all busted

You can't pressure me
when will you see the walls that are closing in
you wanna take, take, take 'till you have it allv Can't trust it
your busted ass
Can't trust it
who's the one to suffer now
you're the one who showed me how
put yourself on the ropes
There's no breaksback to top
Maladjusted
Nothing satisfies, nothing will cause it won't get a chance to.
Altered spirit and altered mind take a turn for the worst soon.
Fear has struck, fear is stuck maladjusted

Assurance won't sit well at all cause no one is trusted
You've got what you wanted
the reason you came
control action control of the game

See through the happiness,
see through the sappiness
Seen through the front that obscures all the truth
and see ugliness, torture, torture and ugliness

Selfishness lost in a quagmire of human filth

Fear has struck, fear is stuck Maladjusted
Fear that rules a twisted fuck, Maladjustedback to top
Goatless
Before us is an empty slate
we can impress how we please
Bombard them with the usual schlock
whatever we've got up our sleeve

Teach them that violence can solve all their problems
Teach them to act on a whim

The horror the one we present is just where the horror begins...
Violent fantasy, comes reality the effect will be quite a tragedy

We'll point the finger
we'll point the finger
we'll point the finger
we'll point the finger
of blame, Before us is a twisted world
no one can work out the knots we've got
an enemy here they could be blamed for a lot

We'll say they're the problem,
we'll say they're the cause
they'll be the scapegoat now - goatless - we'd be on the spot
we can't let the truth come out If
the pressure cracks another
and they know who to come after whe'd be goatlessback to top
Friends Like You
call me a friend but you stab me in the back
you pretend we get along it's all just an act
you always use people to get what you need
you take advantage of others to satisfy your greed

we don't need you, you fuckin' scum
hope that friends like you will never come
when things turn bad for you don't count on me
cause i'll turn my back on you as you did to me

we don't need friends like you [x4]back to top
Step Down
In the underground, integrity lies within
in the underground, image doesn't mean a thing
when the substance lacks it's plain for all to see
if the deal is right then respect is where it should be.

For the fakes and frauds it's a fucking fashion show
total compromise will have them sell their soul.
all the negative all the useless influence
all the emptiness all the violent detriment
makes no sense...

Please have more to give than fashion and images
please have more to give than fashion and images

Caught up in a trap of media crap that's no way to live
Caught up in a trap of media crap so little to give
Caught up in a trap of media crap that's no way to live
Caught up in a trap of media crap so little to give

In the underground, integrity lies within
in the underground, image doesn't mean a thing
we can do away with this negativity
it's a golden day we can force them to stepdownback to top
