Track Name: Up Against The Wall
1968, A year of unrest
Fist in the air, a nation to the test
Not much has changed, we’re still against the wall,
They’ve got us by the throat and they’ve got us by the balls.

Up against the wall
Up against the wall
Up against the wall motherfuckers
Up against the wall

It’s happened before it’ll happen again,
A neverending story that’ll come to an end.
Violent by nature, sadistic is it’s way,
Our system breeds the tyrant but is it really just to blame?

They’ll shoot to kill us, why not shoot to kill them?
It’s a matter of survival, our lives to defend.
Light the walls on fire and loot what you need,
Turn around the soil and plant a new seed.

Up against the wall
Up against the wall
Up against the wall motherfuckers
Up against the wall

1968, a year of unrest
Fist in the air, a nation to the test
Not much has changed, we’re still against the wall
They’ve got us by the throat and they’ve got us by the balls
They’ll shoot to kill us, why not shoot to kill them?
It’s a matter of survival, our lives to defend.
Track Name: Shatterer (D.I.E Version)
Brain disconnected from the body
Dislocated from the head
It wanders on, remains in motion
Seems that it doesn't know it's dead

What is now remains forever
What was lost remains unknown
Knowing nothing ever better
The simple mind of a drone

Shatterer
Shatterer
Lives upon your fear
Shatterer
Shatterer
Feeds upon your mind

Garbage eaten in the morning
And time for pills after noon
Then watching tv in the bedroom
The home has now become a tomb

Like rats they turn upon each other
Their words have all turned into lies
And in the end, it never mattered
If they were dead or alive

Shatterer
Shatterer
Lives upon your fear
Shatterer
Shatterer
Feeds upon your mind
Track Name: Hostility
The world is repeating history,
With varied norms and technology. We’ve reached the end of the tale:
War is real and life is hell.
The world’s coming apart at the seams, We see it on the tube and in our dreams. We are severing our wrists, screaming, Breathing in this hostility.

The world is reflecting our desires, Fueling our needs, lighting our fires.
Smothering decency as she wails, To appease our queen rationale.
It lies within our eyes for some, Others need to kill for fun.
Bleach in the excess of the seas, Can’t wash away this hostility.

A friend to few, foe to most,
Solid as steel, shadow of a ghost.
Stealth as the night, loud as the ‘bang, We tried to refrain, we defended in vain. It speaks to you within your head, Sleeps beside you in your bed,
Molds the crust on your daily bread, Grinds your teeth and paints you red.
Track Name: The Game Of Life Show
I can’t believe the world,
but it’s no surprise
I can’t believe oblivion,
it’s beyond their eyes
Nation-states’ imploding
Alliances’ eroding
The spectacle’s shining bright,
all is gonna blow

And if you didn’t know
It’s the way the river flows
Watching from the outside
This game of life show

Savage is their nature
Despicable their type
Their kind will self destruct
When the time is ripe
Times gonna lapse
It’ll all collapse
Right before our eyes
Well beyond their mind

And if you didn’t know
It’s the way the river flows
Watching from the outside
This game of life show

I can’t believe the world,
but it’s no surprise
I can’t believe oblivion,
it’s beyond their eyes
Nation-states’ imploding
Alliances’ eroding
The spectacle’s shining bright,
all is gonna blow
Track Name: God's Wrath
An iron fist of rule - a tyrant given free reign
Created to explain - designed and given a name
Creator or created - one in the same
Atrocities committed - man is to blame

God’s pissed - revenge at last
Hypochristians - no more free pass
Gods pissed - it’ll be a bloodbath
Game over - can’t escape God's wrath


Wars will worsen - all in his name
The end is near - religion's to blame
Savage explanations - collide under why’s
Carving out the end - one drop at a time

God’s pissed - revenge at last
Hypochristians - no more free pass
Gods pissed - it’ll be a bloodbath
Game over - can’t escape God's wrath

If man created god and god created all
Then man created the neander-neocon-theal
Man says god - god created all
but mans god led - led to man's fall
Believers kissing ass - zealots forging paths
The creators of god - face gods wrath

God’s pissed - revenge at last
Hypochristians - no more free pass
Gods pissed - it’ll be a bloodbath
Game over - can’t escape God's wrath
Track Name: Eyes Of A Psychopath
Visceral watch the
Blood splatter shatter
Bones unlock the tombs
The mystery that has
Me by the throat

In a frenzy
Trick weapons mow
Down beasts
Grant us eyes

Even though the evil
Is taking over leave a
Pile of corpses and take
The echoes

Brutal bludgeoning blunt
Weapon crushing skulls
Track Name: The Keeper Of My Demise
My brown bottomed beauty,
Oh how you warm my soul,
I know what you'll do to me,
Oh how love takes it's toll,
I can still taste your misery,
Every breath reminds me of you,
You left me out shivering,
Now i cant wait to be beside you

Behind all the deciept and lies
I can't stand to be without you
You'll quench my thirst till i die
You're the keeper of my demise

I wake the next morning,
Seeing you've left my side,
What did i do to deserve this?
Was there no love in my eyes?
I know where to find you
It's only a matter of time,
I'm coming to get you,
I can't wait till you're mine

Behind all the deciept and lies
I can't stand to be without you
You quench my thirst till i die
You're the keeper of my demise

You're the keeper of my demise.....

No love is lost forever
But i can do this no longer

I can still feel you burning in my veins
Scorching through my heart,tearing me apart
Oh how do i miss those good old days,
So young and in love, so reckless and dumb

Why did you do this to me?
How could you do this to me?
After all that we've been through?
After all i've given up for you?

Behind all the deciept and lies
I can't stand to be without you
You'll quench my thirst till i die
You're the keeper of my demise

Leaving you is the hardest thing i'll ever do,
But staying with you is killing everything i love,
I'll always miss you, the way you made me smile,
But i know that things will never be the same

Now that im without you,
I never thought id be happy again,
If i would of known what i know now,
Oh how happy i would have been,

Your love has left a scar,
But now my new life can finally begin
