1. DEAD TO RIGHTS

Is, this what you came for, I know what I'm here for?
Knocked down, right to the floor, committed to kill
What you don't know, can't just let it go
They webbed me in this?

Take cause you need more, don't ask what's in store
You'll be knocked down, right to the floor
Committed to kill, what you don't know
Can't just let it go, with all their hypocrisy

My stomach's in knots, throw at me what you got
'Cause I will break free, of all the webs that bind me (x2)
Yeah

I'm fit to be tied, I've got you dead to rights
It's like a suicide, living alongside you, you
(You)

So, get what you came for, fucked up on the floor
Kick straight out the door, get yourself up
And bend to no man, no man, no man, no man
Who webbed me in this?

Take cause you need more, don't ask what's in store
You'll be knocked down, right to the floor
Committed to kill, what you don't know
Can't just let it go, with all their hypocrisy

My stomach's in knots, throw at me what you got
'Cause I will break free, of all the webs that bind me (x2)
Yeah

I'm fit to be tied, I've got you dead to rights
It's like a suicide, living alongside you

Webbed me up, you webbed me up
Hung me out to dry, had no idea
I've got you dead to rights, yeah, dead, to, rights

Don't take it so personal, it's just that trouble is coming

You, you know it to be goddamn true

I've got you dead to rights (x3)
I've got you

I've got you dead to rights (x3).




2. BRING THE FIGHT

Torrid tales from the rats, they're filled with disgust
I'm closer to closure now than, I've ever been
It's so honestly honest, just who's my friend
And who's riding the coattails 'til the end

Sure as shit, there's nothing that will change me
There's nothing, sure as shit
Now, there's no quick fix, you're broke, no quick fix
You're broke, no, no price for power

Bring the fight, bring the fight
To the floor, no price for power (x2)

I'm pushed to, the limit, in my heart I've got malice
Cultivated in Cali, and wasted in wonderland
Better the devil you know, than the one you don't
You can not trust another, and you know you won't

Sure as shit, there's nothing that will change me
There's nothing, sure as shit
Now, there's no quick fix, you're broke, no quick fix
You're broke, no, no price for power

Bring the fight, bring the fight
To the floor, no price for power (x2)

Annihilate, to obliterate, step fucking in, and redeem your fate
Shot to the center, of everything, welcome, to, the new world

Bring the fight, bring the fight
To the floor, no price for power (x2).




3. HARDENED

Outlast, outrun and kill the strong
We run as one, the hunt begun
I lay in wait out with my pack
'Til dawn of day when we attack
The first ones down without a sound
Then comes the second round
Where screams of pain and throws of lust
Have just begun to quench us

With tooth and claw, we use our might
To tear them down, secure the fight
To sounds of screams, that fill the night
The end is near, the meal in sight
If might makes right, then we ignite
Like moth to flame, they cry in pain
The ones who escape
Remember our name, remember our name
Remember our name

Hunger drives a wolf
From the woods, when he comes to hunt, kill
Or Hell, stay for good

Hardened, hardened towards your world
Hardened, hardened towards your, words
Hardened, in eternal vigil, hardened like steel, hard as Hell

This thirst is on, the carnage on
Take out the weak, take out the strong
We come in quick and hit them hard
And cut them down with little sound

With tooth and claw, we use our might
To tear them down, secure the fight
To sounds of screams, that fill the night
The end is near, the meal in sight
If might makes right, then we ignite
Like moth to flame, they cry in pain
The ones who escape
Remember our name, remember our name
Remember our name

Hunger drives a wolf
From the woods, when he comes to hunt, kill
Or Hell, stay for good

Hardened, hardened towards your world
Hardened, hardened towards your, words
Hardened, in eternal vigil, hardened like steel, hard as Hell

Send them packing, stranger in my home
Good riddance, I never knew you
In the eyes of the fight, the righteous bleeding
The blood that boils but God I love the killing

Look to the skies, see the anger is seething
I'm gonna come with all at you, all at you
Full guns, out and blazing
The bodies fall as the stench, thickness

Hardened
(Hardened, hardened), I'm hardened towards your world
Hard as Hell, Hardened
(Hardened), I'm hard as Hell
Hardened.




4. SHITLIST

Pure manifestation of evil, it's black, and it's dismal
You'd never know until it's upon you, you're on a bender
I'm deconstructing the disease, the disease

You've burned the bridges, you've sowed the lies
You've burned the bridge, you're on, the, shit, list (x2)

Hate holds, me together, your skin's not worth the saving
Just keep my name outta your mouth, on your fuckin' benders
I'm deconstructing the disease, the disease

You've burned the bridges, you've sowed the lies
You've burned the bridge, you're on, the, shit, list

You've burned the bridges, you've sowed the lies
You've burned the bridge, you're on, the, hit, list

The tables have turned, I've opened my eyes
Look at all you've burned, you're on, the, shit, list

Fear, will, do, what, must, be, done
Death will reign, death will reign, from above, go

You've burned the bridges, you've sowed the lies
You've burned the bridge, you're on, the, hit, list

The tables have turned, I've opened my eyes
Look at all you've burned, you're on, the, shit, list

You're on, the, shit, list
You know who you are, you know who you are
You're on, the, hit, list.




5. TALONS OUT (TEETH SHARPENED)

What was said was like thunder in my head
I felt the earth quaking, the absence of atonement, all smiles
Feed on me, while you bring the unmaking

From the abyss, without remiss
I pledge my person, I pledge my demon
No cure for money and allure
I pledge my person, I pledge my demon

Talons out, and teeth sharpened
Don't let the fuckin' world, beat you down (x2)

Antisocial, you're uncontrollable, get away with murder
The absence of atonement, all smiles, it's all war, from, here

From the abyss, without remiss
I pledge my person, I pledge my demon
No cure for money and allure
I pledge my person, I pledge my demon

Your glue, it's not gonna stick
(It's not gonna stick), tape won't mend a broken heart
And some things, you just can't fix

Talons out, and teeth sharpened
Don't let the fuckin' world, beat you down (x2)

Lift yourself, up from the ground
Come at them, with teeth sharpened

Talons out, and teeth sharpened
Don't let the fuckin' world, beat you down

It's a pre-emptive strike so bring the fighting
You're the first in line, something tells me
The fix is all around me
So bring the fighting, so bring the fighting, bring it

Tape won't mend a broken heart
And some things, you just can't fix

Talons out, and teeth sharpened
Don't let the fuckin' world, beat you down (x2)

Lift yourself, up from the ground
Come at them, with teeth sharpened

Talons out, and teeth sharpened
Don't let the fuckin' world, beat you down

Beat you down, beat you down
Don't let the fuckin', world
(World, world), beat you down, beat you down.




6. YOU MAKE ME SICK

Pass them by, pass them by, 'til all their pain subsides
As the lamb, the lamb, lays by your side
The last season is upon us, tough to deal with, a real hard case

Make no mistake, no bones about it
Never fit in but I've found my place
Going in, dirty as pigs, sacred secrets of the sorrow bound
Going in, dirty as pigs, watching as it comes unwound

You, make, me, sick, you make me sick (x2)
Irreverent and full of wants, shaking at the foundation
Gone again but not gone for good, living in sedation
Think so little of yourself to think of no one else
Hope no one tells

Make no mistake, no bones about it
Never fit in but I've found my place
Going in, dirty as pigs, sacred secrets of the sorrow bound
Going in, dirty as pigs, watching as it comes unwound

You, make, me, sick, you make me sick (x2)
With everything you do, with everything you are
Everything you say, you take it too far
You, make, me, sick, you make me sick

(Make me sick) (x4)

This, sour taste, remains, this sour taste, remains
Disdain, disdain, disdain (x2)

Sick, your actions speak louder than words
All I do is throw the curse

You, make, me, sick, you make me sick (x2)
With everything you do, with everything you are
Everything you say, you take it too far
You, make, me, sick, you make me sick

Your actions speak louder then words
All I do is throw the curse
I'll burn it down, before it turns black
There's no solutions so I'm on the attack.




7. COLDBLOODED

Choking on the ladders, you're hoping to climb
Swimming through the oceans divine
You keep wishing on stars that won't take you far
Wish me, wish me, far away

Beyond the voices is where the snakes lie
The world is venomous
Beyond the fences is where they go to die
The world is venomous, it's fucking relentless

Scrutinized, no one denies, you play the victim
Coldblooded, coldblooded
They watch your lies, no one denies, you play the victim
Coldblooded, coldblooded

There's fire in the Goddamn sky, dead, but still dreaming
Lean on the dream, that won't take you far
Wish me, wish me, far away

Beyond the voices is where the snakes lie
The world is venomous
Beyond the fences is where they go to die
The world is venomous, it's fucking relentless

Scrutinized, no one denies, you play the victim
Coldblooded, coldblooded
They watch your lies, no one denies, you play the victim
Coldblooded, coldblooded

Scrutinized, no one denies, you play the victim
Coldblooded, coldblooded
They watch your lies, no one denies, you play the victim
Coldblooded, coldblooded

Deeds of the flesh, all put to rest, stay steady
Coldblooded, coldblooded
They watch your lies, no one denies
You play the victim, coldblooded, coldblooded.




8. BLUR

It's no, wonder that you hang, together, can't keep myself sane
I flee, in solace forever, life's short, so duck for cover

Walls have ears, and the ears have eyes
They're all allies against the same, enemy
I don't know, what the future holds
If you search for gold, better not sleep alone

I don't know you, but I fucking hate you
And what I am saying, is it's been a blur
I don't know you, but I fucking hate you
And what I am saying, it was all a blur

It's all about the opinion, I'm in, solitary confinement
What I am saying is, you and yours, will face the judgment

Walls have ears, and the ears have eyes
They're all allies, against the same, enemy
I don't know, what the future holds
If you search for gold, better not sleep alone

I don't know you, but I fucking hate you
And what I am saying, is it's been a blur
I don't know you, but I fucking hate you
And what I am saying, it was all a blur

Self-loathing, son of a bitch, pick up the pace, pick up the pace
Obliterate the suffering now, this is a sacrifice
Burn it all away, I'll burn it all down, separate the arrogants

Obliterate the suffering, this is a sacrifice
Burn it all away, I'll burn it all down, separate the arrogance

I don't know you but I fucking hate, you, fucking hate you

You're a marked man, a marked man
You're a marked man, a marked man

I don't know you, I fucking hate you
I don't know you, I fucking hate, you.




9. THE BLAME GAME

I've got the ground, out from under you
Let me die, it's your mistake, it's your fault

It's a long walk home, but you've, hit rock-bottom
It's a long walk home, and you'll, never get home
Give me a reason, to speak, my mind
Give me a reason, I'm not your bitch, every, time

Blame me, you always, blame me, for everything (x2)
My mind is pure, my heart is true
You're a thankless piece of shit, I, blame, you

Pushed inside yourself
Fucker, what do you see? It's your mistake, it's your gun

It's a long walk home, but you've, hit rock-bottom
It's a long walk home, and you'll, never get home
Give me a reason, to speak, my mind
Give me a reason, I'm not your bitch, every, time

Blame me, you always, blame me, for everything (x2)
My mind is pure, my heart is true
You're a thankless piece of shit, I, blame, you

Transgressions not forgotten, cutting off the cost
Iron-cast, bound forever, to fight for triumph or tragedy

I, blame, you
(You, you), I put the blame on, I put the blame, on you
(You, you, you, you), I put the blame on, I put the blame on
(You, you, you, you), I, blame, you
(You, you, you), you.




10. BLACK SOUL CHOIR

Ain't none ever seen the face, of his foe no
He ain't made of flesh and, bone
He's the one who sits up, close beside you
An when he's there you are, alone

Every man is evil yes, every man is a, liar
An unashamed with the wicked tongues
Sing in the black soul, choir (x2)
Get out of my way, get out of my way

Yes an no man, ever seen the face, of my Lord no
Not since he left his, skin
He's the one you keep cold, on the outside girl
He's at your door just let him, in

Every man is evil yes, every man is a, liar
An unashamed with the wicked tongues
Sing in the black soul, choir (x2)
Get out of my way, get out of my way

O I will forgive your wrongs, yes I am able
An for my own I feel great shade
I would offer up a brick, to the back, of your head boy
If I was, Cain

Every man is evil yes, every man is a, liar
An unashamed with the wicked tongues
Sing in the black soul, choir (x2)
Get out of my way, get out of my way.




11. CROWNS OF CREATION

You're a fucking, hustler, wearing crowns of creation
I was born a troubler, spitting venom, I've been a hunter
I was on probation, you were on parole
When you're wrong, you're wrong, you know
To err is Human, to forgive divine
What's yours is yours, what's mine is mine

Life is hard, no one makes it out alive, seek higher ground
No matter how bad it gets, there's someone worse off than you
Seek higher ground

Men are evil, all men are vain
Pride dies first, within the grave
Worries are wasted, all cares put to ease
As the claw scratches us like fleas
Blood of the dog, a man is not a man
Without blood, on his hands
These scars I've earned, I've earned on my own
Distant memories, away from home

Life is hard, no one makes it out alive, seek higher ground
No matter how bad it gets, there's someone worse off than you
Seek higher ground

The world goes by, you've gotta make it alone now
Put that shit on the shelf and become a man
Work hard, count only on yourself, seek higher ground

The world never fought for me
In fact it's been heartless 'til the end
With everyone, helping me go down
And all the misery that's around
My blind vision, you'll all dead by morning
My blind vision, now all the blood is pouring

Life is hard, no one makes it out alive, seek higher ground
No matter how bad it gets, there's someone worse off than you
Seek higher ground

The world goes by, you've gotta make it alone now
Put that shit on the shelf and become a man
Work hard, count only on yourself, seek higher ground

Disavow, everything that they say
Disavow, everything that they're about, seek higher ground
Seek higher ground.




12. LEND MYSELF TO THE NIGHT

Listen up

These spirits exact a heavy toll
I've had it, thrown caution, out of the window
Let evil in at times, paid an exact price for all my crimes
Bathed in blood but came out, clean as a holy shrine

Lend myself to the night, thrown myself to the wind, fuck it
It's worth the risk, it's worth the risk, it's worth believing in

Bells ringing in the eyes of fire
I've had it, watch what you seek, it really exists
Let evil in at times, paid an exact price for all my crimes
Bathed in blood but came out, clean as a holy shrine

Lend myself to the night
(To the night), thrown myself to the wind, just fuck it
It's worth the risk, it's worth the risk, it's worth believing in

Lend myself to the night, watch it all fall
Thrown myself to the wind, as it goes down
It's worth the risk, it's worth the risk, fuck it
It's worth believing in, it's worth believing in

True
(So true), I've been there and back again
(I've been there and back again)
Found myself face down on the tracks
(Face down), face, down
(Face down)

Lend myself to the night
(To the night), thrown myself to the wind, just fuck it
It's worth the risk, it's worth the risk, it's worth believing in

Lend myself to the night
(To the night), thrown myself to the wind, as it goes down
It's worth the risk, it's worth the risk, fuck it
It's worth believing in, it's worth believing in.




BONUSTRACKS (SPECIAL EDITION)




13. LOST

Eat your inners, choke on your tongue
Rip off your flesh, be gone, gouge eyes, drown in your spit
Self-loathing son of a bitch, that's it
(That's it), who needs friends, when I've got these meds
And I know where the trouble stems
Who thinks it's all set to fail? This is not the case

Punch the numbers, push the button
Keep life living, escape (x2)

When justice meets revenge, there's much to ascertain
After the trigger is pulled, fools, all learn it the hard way

(Lost), amputate, dismember
(Lost), tank treads and train tracks

Pull your hair out, eat poison, jump, from that window
Scratch your eyes out, fall down stairs, just, fucking die though
Who needs friends, when I've got these meds
And I know where the trouble stems
Who thinks it's all set to fail? This is not the case

Punch the numbers, push the button
Keep life living, escape (x2)

When justice meets revenge, there's much to ascertain
After the trigger is pulled, fools, all learn it the hard way

Concern is not your care
Shovel to the back, to the back of your head
Stare down this frozen glare, nothing to fear, nothing, nothing

When justice meets revenge, there's much to ascertain
After the trigger is pulled, fools, all learn it the hard way

(Lost), amputate, dismember.




14. FORTUNE FAVORS THE BRAVE

Christ-like in the composition, you're the brunt of the problem
It's my, bone of contention, so many faults, I fail to mention
When the house is blowing down
(And you're fighting), and you're fighting for the crown
You got to learn, to manifest the sound
That gets them all, running

You have a history of missing the point
So let me point this one out, every time has it's season
Every last moment it's reason

Fortune favors the brave, this city is a dying whore
It's too late to save, and it will never change

Nauseous, at the site, furious, towards it's vice
I get sick, thinking about it, insane, faint-hearted
When the house is blown down
(And you're fighting), and you're fighting for the crown
I get sick, just thinking about it, it gets them all, running

You have a history of missing the point
So let me point this one out

Fortune favors the brave, this city is a dying whore
It's too late to save, and it will never change (x2)

Change

Don't let down, cold night, falling down to my knees

Fortune favors the brave, this city is a dying whore
It's too late to save, and it will never change (x2).




15. GRINFUCKED (LIVE)

Lights on but no-ones home, I should've left you on your own
You can't stand the heat you're all alone, yeah
Horseshoes and hand-grenades, coulda, woulda, shoulda
Your bed is made, another man down, and gone

Take, advantage, manipulate, take, advantage, you piece of shit
Grinfucked, debt, paid in, full
(Full), you won't grin, fuck, me

This time the advantage is mine
(Mine, mine) this time, vengeance is mine
Come seeking treasure, without a map
It's in the journey and you'll never find your way back

Take, advantage, manipulate, take, advantage, you piece of shit
Grinfucked, debt, paid in, full
(Full), you won't grin, fuck, me

Drop down
Fool me, once, shame on, you
Fool me, twice, shame, on, me

You've, been grin, fucked
You've, been grinfucked (x2).
