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
Violent Generation
Hard times, is what we're in
and it ain't getting any easier my friends
friends, search for the easy way out
and they don't care how it comes about
youth, they just wanna get paid
they don't wanna end up working like slaves
slavin', for nickels and dimes
so they turn to the quick money of crime

Morals are gone, no respect for human life
but what was it that you'd expect
take a look around at this world we live in
tell me you wouldn't grow up cold and callous
prejudice, is one of their tools
and we fell for it like a pack of fools
fools, is what we are
we follow their plans to the letter so far
each other, at the other's throat
they sit back, to them it's all a joke
joke, but now the joke is on them
they can't deal with this generation so violent

We stand accused of the crimes
the crimes that take place
they point the finger
but they're the ones that set the pace
they beat you down, to try to keep you in your place
they were the ones, they were the ones
they were the ones that taught me to hateback to top
Alone
Living in this world that's full of hate
I just try to keep to myself
People gonna fuck with you anyway
They just can't leave you alone
Giving you advice you don't wanna hear
Like thier lives are so great

All of their lies filled me with anger and hate
There's always someone watching every move you make

Living in this world that's full of fools
I just try to keep to myself
People always throwing thier opinions at you
Makes it hard to see things clear
Just remember that in the end
The final decision is up to you

All of their lies filled me with anger and hate
They had their greed and their dictations
I just pretend to live a life in solitude
All I wanna be is left alone
Disappointment was all you got from me
All I wanna be is left alone
All I wanna be is left alone
All I wanna be is left aloneback to top
The Pain Strikes
the pain strikes, the pain ascends
too much to comprehend
come down, remove the breath
come down, remove what's left
loss of the will to live, the loss of everything

i know we'll say goodbye someday
goodbye said in an eternal way
too precious just to throw away
it's a waste, such a waste, what a waste, you know
i can't believe it's happening

the pain strikes, the pain's at hand
too much to understand
wind blow, remove the pain
wind blow, put out the flame

you won't admit to the pain you've submit to
you fight it every inch of the way
you don't deserve this, it's such an injustice
just watching you slip away

you on the other hand - pathetic i reprimand
you for all the things you believe
nobody wants to know what you're up to
when all you want to do is deceiveback to top
Shut Me Out
Pressure cooker about to explode
the ignorant ones are litenin' to fools
radical factions add fuel to the fire
to satisfy their hateful desire

We as the innocent suffer the most
paying for crimes we did not commit
here to serve penance for history's sins
detested for something we've never been

All their grandstands, all their big plans
didn't change a damn thing
how could you explain
i don't know your pain
understanding how you shut me out
trust - is lost - we'll gain it back
give us the chance
look in our past and what do you see
history of violence for centuries
the truth isn't written in history's page
this is the source of frustration and rage
we have no rights to ask for your trust
to gain your acceptance we'll do what we must
we'll make a stand for whatever's right
we'll make a stand equal and tight

Shut me out don't you
shut me out don't you
shut me out don't you
shut me outback to top
Pushed Too Far
push us too far, got to fight back
push us too far, our turn to attack
we got to try before it's too late
push us too far you're choosing your own fate

walking around think you're so cool
beating up kids weaker than you
tried to avoid you, but you kept on coming
pushed us too far, gotta do something

this time you pushed us too farback 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
Locomotive
Trapped in a rut and i can't get out
don't see a way to be free
working at it everyday nothing that i do
or say can break my poverty
my desperate eyes will close tonight
and i hope i won't feel a thing
cause i know tomorrow i'll continue
with my sorrow
and my desperate eyes will sting

I don't understand, is it some kind of plan
to keep us in our places
no matter how we try, no matter how we strive
we just can't seem to get ahead

Same old stuff all over again
but necessity keeps me here
every week that passes
i'm gettin' weaker, faster
i'm living in constant fear
suffering is at an all time high
and they tell me i'm a lucky man
if lucky is to suffer, then i wish it on another
and i really don't give a damn

Day in day out, feeling the grind
someway, somehow, gonna leave it behind day in day out, feeling the grind
someway, somehow, gonna leave it behind
day in day out, feeling the grind
someway, somehow, gonna leave it behindback to top
World Full of Hate
Living in a time when no one cares or gives a shit,
the world now cold and hard
Senseless killing, no apparent reason
Suffer the greed of what the others got
Anger and hatred, the tension's always there
There is no relief in sight for this world full of hate

Nobody cries as the innnocent die and the guilty go free in this world - full of hate
Struggle and strive just to live out our lives as we try to survive in this world - full of hate
Nobody cries as the innnocent die and the guilty go free in this world - full of hate
Struggle and strive just to live out our lives as we try to survive in this world - full of hate

Stand with me, disregard is all I see
Keep to yourself shelteredfor no one else
I've got no respect for a world that can't take care of it's own

Living in a time when no one cares
Or gives a shit, the world now cold and hard
Senseless killing, no appearant reason
Suffer the greed of what the others got
Anger and hatred, the tensions always there
There's no relief in sight for this world full of hate

Nobody cries as the innnocent die and the guilty go free in this world - full of hate
Struggle and strive just to live out our lives as we try to survive in this world - full of hate
Nobody cries as the innnocent die and the guilty go free in this world - full of hate
Struggle and strive just to live out our lives as we try to survive in this world - full of hateback 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
What's Goin' On
Does anybody realize what's goin' on
take a look around and you will see that we're destroying ourselves
does everybody out there have a chip on their shoulders
or is it that we've got nothing, nothing better to do

Beatings of five to one wasn't enough
now we're using everything from chains
to knives and guns
how much more of this do we have to take
before we realize it's such a senseless waste

Does anybody out there hear the cries
of mothers who have lost their children
to your foolish games
when are you gonna realize
that it's all just, just a senseless waste

You think that it's just a game
well, i've got one thing to explain
someday your luck will fail
then you'll wind up dead or jailedback to top
Give Respect
give respect, get it back, my solid promise
to this private pact, to this honored oath
i pledged never to let them push you over the edge
straight edge or not don't matter to me
you can be what you want to be
in your actions give me proof
what's inside, the real truth

pure is what you are when you're born
be positive of what you're gonna be
hard is the life that you're thrown into
stick it out like my brothers and me

extend your hand, call your friend
i'll stand with you to the end
forget mistakes of the past
if you're friendship's true it will last
straight edge or not don't matter to me
you can be what you want to be
in your actions give me proof
what's inside, the real truthback to top
No Labels
Open your eyes and you will see
You've got a life, look at me
Can't they do what they say
Live your live in your own way

No labels, no lies
No fronts to hide behind
No labels, no lies
No bullshit to hide behind

No labels, no lies

Open your eyes and you will see
You've got a life, look at me
Can't they do what they say
Live your live in your own way

No labels, no labels, no labels and no liesback to top
Pete's Sake
i don't fuckin' understand you
you always tell me to think for myself
but when i disagree with what you say
you turn around and put me down
i don't know why you have to play
these high and mighty power trip games

you're double standards are pissing me off
you've got a set of rules for you and another for us
you're no better and you're no worse
but it's time you stop acting like a fucking jerk

i really wish you would quit
cause we know you're full of shitback to top
We Want the Truth
Abused used the way we felt
Dirt cheap the way you dealt
Talk talk nothing's said
Speeches promises don't mean a thing
Empty words from your mouth
Token actions gave you clout
Time's now to end your luck
No more talks cause we don't give a fuck

About your alibis, about your lies
and all your excuses
Think we can't handle it
Think we would cave in, why don't you try it
No more stories, no more double talk
and no more cover ups, we just want the truth!

Abused used the way we felt
Dirt cheap the way you dealt
Talk talk nothing's said
Speeches promises don't mean a thing
Empty words from your mouth
No one cares what it's about
In the past give us proof
No more talks, we just want the truth!

And what about the youth
Never told the truth
Never told what it's all about
It's all about the wealth
There's no one there to help
and everyone's looking out for themselves
Put our faith in you and our trust too
Have you no conscience
We know the story, it's money and glory
Don't care who you step on
No more speeches, no time for apologies
We heard it all before
All of your alibis, all about your lies
and all your excuses
Think we can't handle it
Think we would cave in, think we can't take it
No more stories, no more double talk
No more cover ups, we just want the truth!back to top
The Shield
Lowered my shield, lowered - defenses
happier now feeling - all senses
heighten my soul and my - awereness
isn't it great being - defendeless
a long time ago i was - protected
the choise was mine and i - selected
the joy and the pain were - connected
lowered my shield, now i'm not protected

I never used to let it down
never used to let it down
i never used to let it down
never used to let it
there's something i've got to see
i never used to let it down
never used to let it down
i never used to let it down
never used to let it
i've got to see what's realy inside of me

Now i understand that emotion
now i undrstand why ther's commotion
all this time without - a notion
all this time without - devotion
why waste time being - suspicious
come taste life it's - delicious
expose yourself to the - malicious
expose yourself, they're - so vicious

All these years / will this shield disappear
and will i stand / a stronger man / no shield in hand
i'll have to overcome the pain the best that i canback to top
We Stand Alone
Here it is, once again,
tales of betrayal by the ones we call our friends
took us long to get where we are
now we're told what we've done is wrong

We all started with something to say
was it our different views or jealousy in the way
now you're the ones setting the rules
just like the establishment you're so against
lay down your laws, say what you will
tell me i'm wrong and i'll defy you

Who are you to make up rules and put us down ?
with our friends, we'll stay to the end
and if it comes down to it, we'll stand alone
Here it is once again, tales of conformity
by the ones who would be king
we never set out to impress anyone
it's just an outlet, our chance to be heard
at first you said we hated to much
now you say we just can't hate enough
now you're screaming that we've changed
we've grown up but our beliefs are still the same
it's still an outlet for anger and strife
but one more thing, it's also our life

(We) we don't need any help (stand alone)
our beliefs are strong enough to (stand alone)
our desire's burning deep, in our hearts
it's in ourheads, it's in our souls
(we) we defy your fucking lies (stand alone)
you question our beliefs (stand alone)
our desire's burning deep, in our hearts
it's in our heads, it's in our souls (stand alone)

We stand alone

People from the past, they dont want to hear us
the ones they call our peers, they just fear us
ain't handin' no lies but reality comes off as cold
what you hear from me comes from deep down inside us
this just ain't a song of defiance, i'm just tellin' you how it goes

We stand aloneback to top
Indust.
Locked out, and alienated
lost, soul, is feared and hated
judged, scared, not comprehended
waste, time, no more

Everyone's reponsible to take precaution - be aware
research is our best defense
if we ignore it we'll just fool ourselves

Your, lies, and misconception
won't, help, in their affliction
learn, know, what's fact or fiction
waste, time, no more

There's no more time for talk, we've got to see
the reality that surrounds us every day
we can't ignore all the victims of the plague
who've been fighting for a future
that's looking pretty, pretty vague
we can't deny it, we can deny it
it just ain't right if we turn a blind eye
the truth will upset all of those
who will let this apathy run their live, 'cause :

Silence equals death
silence equals death
silence equals deathback 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
