Track Name: The Born Again
Come to find you've burnt down your home
And found yourself doomed to roam
From thought to concept to pit where you preach
Where you found yourself the one to teach

Again again to be born again
They'll bury me just to be born again

Thoughts harden to acts and beliefs
Where you try to raise up those underneath
Salve the throat, remove the boot
Feed them your corn and tame the brute

Again again to be born again
They'll bury me just to be born again

When they attack and you know they will
Will you beat them back or just clean up the spill?
They've got their guns and family too
And they won't wait around for your words to stew

Again again to be born again
They'll bury me just to be born again
Track Name: Idol Worship
The white sand
On local land

The king in power
Paid on the hour

The casted vote
Crushed mother's throat

The preventive pill
Drains the will

The long term goal
Blackens the soul

The antique arts
Are missing parts

The paranoid
Fill the void

The growing chain
Is mundane
Track Name: Drown The Old
The repeated pattern
Ancient ways of life
Born with their land
Kept safe with the knife

Those left outside
Subject to their beck and call
They saw no reason to change
So we changed it all

Sleeping indoors
While others bake in the sun
Broken and blistered
Ordered by the fortunate son

Cradled for too long
Held when you should have been whipped
Clean face and clean eyes and clean hands
That should have been shoveling shit

Forced to drown the old
Track Name: Common Stain
Common stain
You learned the rules from unfit minds
Who didn't understand the grand design
It's a common stain

Common stain
Studying with an incomplete text
Blaming the world when you fail the test
It's a common stain

Common stain
Chained down to your belief
Seeking out a sympathetic chief
It's a common stain

Common stain
Quick to action but late to thought
Words still escape if the brain is caught
It's a common stain
Track Name: You're An Animal
The superior man
Holds unbound skill
Overriding the body
With the mind's freewill
Law fades away
With the peaceful still
One rule remains
You eat what you kill

Feeling sad
Without a bone
Acting wild
You're an animal

Mental exhaustion
On the primitive brain
Fail and flounder
Under the heavy strain
Forcing back desire
To kill and maim
Makes one question
Who among them is sane?

Feeling sad
Without a bone
Acting wild
You're an animal

Feeling mad
Starting to groan
Acting wild
You're an animal

The disease is real
But there is a cure
Think past the failures
And what they obscure
A promise land
With soil so pure
But the beasts around us
Must be secured

Feeling sad
Without a bone
Acting wild
You're an animal

Feeling mad
Starting to groan
Acting wild
You're an animal
Track Name: Human Right
There isn't time for a big plot
If I stay we all will rot
Thoughts of me are best forgot
I am the fear of being caught

I won't turn you away
Like Mary at Bethlehem
Our love can't be conditional
Or we're no better than them

Here I'll be hiding in dread
Every moment I stay in your bed
Staying means your children are dead
Your love can be a slice of bread

We know a protector
Who can get you underground
You'll be safer in their hands
In ours you probably be found

It's all been been dubbed over
It's all been quick to spoil
It's all been lost on cards
It's all been damned to toil

It's all been locked away
It's all been built on sand
It's all been traded for
It's all been out of hand

Isn't life a human right?
