Track Name: Short Straw
Smelling the scent of defeat
another rough storm playing slow on repeat
glass half empty and it quickly depletes
I'm sinking faster than record speeds
and now I've drawn , the short straw
born to lose I just cant win
cuz I've drawn , the short straw
ive been dealt my hand , Im all in
Track Name: Stray Rats
They're gonna take all til there is none
depleting us all no balance or funds
push us in the hole where there is no sun
where we scratch and bit just to make ends meet
under the floorboards under mans feet
gonna find our own way gonna take that leap
at the end of the trap where they place the cheddar
making us think we'll be off way better
put our lives at stake so they can run their tests
they better figure us out before we all infest
STRAY RATS
gonna flood the streets gonna take control
gonna take whats ours cuz we've paid the toll
try to remove our heads
they call pest control
We know every turn we know every bend
this world of ours is a maze with no end
left or right up or down its all the same theres no way out
we know every turn we know every bend
this world of ours is a maze with no end
left or right up or down its all the same theres no way out
so put on a smile and follow their ways
a life of reward is all about pay
40 hours 40 years punched in on the clock
til one day it all ends and your heart infarcts
40 hours 40 years punched in on the clock
til one day it all ends and your heart infarcts
so put on a smile and follow their ways
a life of reward is all about pay
Track Name: Scum
A typical invisible
narcissistic pessimistic
multiplastic trendy fashion
backwards thinking rightwing fascist
Call me dumb or case of baskets
Save yourself we'll pick your caskets
You're up we're down
You're right we're wrong
We're left you're right
We'll kick your asses

Who am I to be the one to judge?
Shoulder chipped you hold your grudge
Who am I to be the one to judge?
Shoulder chipped you hold your grudge
Bite the curb
Scum
Track Name: Nothing To Gain
No need for dust to settle we can see right through
We sift and weave to find the only pure and true
resist the bullshit cut the negative out OUT
don't ever let the bitches BRING YOU DOWN
nothing can hold us back aint got nothing to gain or lose
we've all made choices
we've all made choices
one's the shed the darkest hue
don't change for no one CHANGE FOR YOU

Life's a ditch
toughen up
brush it off
pick it up

"We don't fit in and we cant be consumed
no one can stand us cuz we all act like fools.
We dress like were bums and break the music taste rules"
There's no backing down. This is our stomping ground.

Suck it up

Get what you give and never be sorry
pain is only weakness leaving the body
suck it up push it fucking out

There's the few. the ones that mean and matter most
swam through your struggle got nothing but love for my brothers
Bangor to RI from Portland to Boston. you always find that peace in my mind so lets have a toast and blackout the world.
Track Name: C.U.A.D.
What when where who and why
Start the drama, make 'em cry
Rearranging words isn't a lie
Flap your lips of a falling sky
If this is your life, just curl up and die
Please do us a favor, curl up and die
If this is your life just curl up and die
Please do us a favor
Curl up and die
Track Name: Reciprocal
physical world is filling up with slime
mental thought process takes too much time
run from your problems never face your fears
follow the numbers never switch gears
lie cheat fuck and steal
any above spin the wheel
follow the norm of reciprocity
we've lost all hope in genuity

our eyes are now clocks
counting down time
until we stare into the black of our minds
into the abyss our after life
take the easy way out
DIE
Track Name: Pill Nation
Sewn Shut
lock the chest throw away the key
tie weight blocks root the tree
in the bottomless pit in the deep blue sea
detach all thoughts every memory
where light is the darkness
no perception or judgement

self destructing zoo new age depression
separate fiction from fact
already ashes in an urn
you had yourself fooled
wasting your life on fake crap
distractions engineered retract the one's among us
day after year year after life
burn your time as a match
sucking out your soul make believe it's so full
leaving you with no self worth
cloud you mind and follow the dream
stay in the lines to be redeemed
make your mark real heavy and dark
test results tell the quest you embark
placed on paper for the world to see
they've narrowed your choices to what you can be
this is life the land of the free
its not about you its all about me

take a number and stand in line
pop the blue pill
every thing will be fine
