Track Name: Asking For It
Call it payback or paying forward
I'm taking justice in my hands
You showed no courage, I'll show no mercy
To right your wrongs, I won't miss this chance

Asking for it
I think you're asking for it

Call it vengeance or call it karma
Eye for an eye, hope you never see again
You showed no dignity, I'll show no courtesy
Or listen to objections, 'cause you're asking for it

Asking for it
I think you're asking for it

Is there anything worse than taking what's not yours?
I'm taking it back and I'm taking it by force

I won't stop when you say "no"
Track Name: Brains On The Wall
No one cares if no one sees your
BRAINS ON THE WALL
Don't waste their time, just aim to please
BRAINS ON THE WALL
They want blood and they know you've got it
BRAINS ON THE WALL
Don't wait, hold back, don't try to stop it
BRAINS ON THE WALL

They want your brains on
Your brains up on the wall
They want your brains on
On that fucking wall
They want your brains on
Your brains up on the wall
They want your brains
On that fucking wall!
Track Name: You're Still Wrong
Shut your mouth
(you’re wrong)
Zip it up
(you’re wrong)
I’ve had enough
(you’re wrong)
Called your bluff
(you’re wrong)

Had a chance, blew it quick
Every word makes me sick
Cut it out, go away
I don’t have the time today

Still wrong
(You’re wrong)
You’re still wrong
(You’re wrong)
You’re still wrong

(You’re wrong)
You’re still wrong
(You’re wrong)

Keep it in, buried down
Don’t let your ideas out
Bigot, homophobic mess
When you talk it’s “more is less”

Still wrong
(You’re wrong)
You’re still wrong
(You’re wrong)
You’re still wrong
(You’re wrong)
You’re still wrong
(You’re wrong)
Track Name: Frustrate
Can't make a change, can't make it go my way
Stuck in this quicksand with no exit, no escape
No trust in reason, no faith or hope in fate
It's just me screamin' at a wall until I break

The pressure is building, the stress is still killing,
the only real feeling is hate: frustrate
Tension is mounting, aggression compounding,
the sirens are sounding away: frustrate!

Can't make a change, I never get my way
Stuck in my head, do nothing but complain
Stuffed with self pity, I'm my own enemy
I'll probably have a nervous breakdown while I wait

The pressure is building, the stress is still killing, the only real feeling is hate: frustrate!
Tension is mounting, aggression compounding, the sirens are sounding away: frustrate!

Distress and blame
Hopeless again
There's gotta be a better way
Listless, enraged
Helpless again
I'm still not giving up today...

Frustrate!
Track Name: Enough
I fight, I'm fucked
Down on my luck
What am I to do?
It's nothing new

Hope is gone, no end in sight
I've got no energy to fight

You think I know
Will I ever learn?
All these bridges
I'm gonna watch them burn

Hope is gone, no end in sight
I've got no energy to fight

Resentments build
Consumed by rage
Just like a rat
Trapped in a cage

Hope is gone, no end in sight
I've got no energy to fight
Things that are so fucking tough
Sometimes I feel I've had enough
Track Name: Hate Party Kill Fest
We're gonna die
Every day closer yet
We're gonna die
Hourglass inside my head
We're gonna die
Strangled by the hands of time
We're gonna die
Trying not to waste a life

But we're all gonna die

We're gonna die
We're headed for our headstones
We're gonna die
No skin, just dead bones
We're gonna die
The life cycle ends fast
We're gonna die
But never slowing down for death

But we're all gonna die
(Don't wait, don't wail, don't wanna)
We're all gonna die
(Not if but when, we're gonna)
Track Name: Cutting Through
You caught me blindside
And it brought me to my knees
I never knew you wore that ugly thin disguise

Cutting through

Hidden agenda buried in the lies
I'll cut through your bullshit
And I won't apologize

Cutting through

I can tell by your face none of it was true
I don't like this shit
I don't like you

Can you tell by my face I'm fucking through?
I don't like your game
I don't like you

I guess I never liked you

Cutting through
Track Name: No Idea
So you think you know hurt?
I'll show you what it means
Think you know the feeling?
Well you would if you looked at me

You're a coward on an ego trip
No idea that's it done
Won't accept responsibility
It's up to me to show you you're wrong

Don't pretend you're sorry
I've yet to hear any guilt
I'll just choose destruction
Tearing down all that we've built

You're a coward on an ego trip
No idea that it's done
Won't accept responsibility
It's up to me to show you you're wrong

Closed your eyes, closed your ears
Closed your mind, you've got no idea
Track Name: Watch You Burn
I'll watch you burn
I'm gonna watch you burn
Now it's your turn
I'm gonna watch you burn

I don't believe
A word you spew
I just watch
The things you do
Actions speak
Louder than words
Now it's time
To watch you burn

I'll watch you burn
I'm gonna watch you burn
Now it's your turn
I'm gonna watch you burn

That pat on the back
Has only held me back
Over time
I've seen my progress lack
You're a wolf
Not my friend
Now it's time
For this charade to end

I'm gonna watch you burn
I'm gonna watch you burn
Now it's your turn
I'm gonna watch you burn
I'm gonna watch you burn
I'm gonna watch you burn
Now it's your turn
I'm gonna watch you burn

You're a wolf in disguise
As my friend
Now it's time
For this charade to end
