Track Name: Cultural Disaster
its a cultural disaster
and we just cant last here
cultural disaster
and these wounds will fester


cultural disaster in everything we see
dehumanization so terrifying
its all flawed and its wrong it has been for so long
now i just cant take it anymore
why even think when its done for you
don't even breathe the poisons all around you
so close your eyes and fall in line
cultural disaster left us deaf dumb and blind

cultural disaster
and we just cant last here
cultural disaster
and these wounds will fester

a terrifying misadventure in the lives that we lead
no one seems to care or feel anything
not awake or asleep but somewhere in between
now Ive ran out of reasons to keep hoping
why even care when its all falling
apart at the seams can you hear them calling
Consume and resume your pointless fucking lives
a perfect example of a culture in decline

cultural disaster
and we just cant last here
cultural disaster
and these wounds will fester

I cant even begin to wonder why
(Wonder why)
we all seem so content to barely get by
(Can't get by)
but I want to live and not just survive
(Just survive)
By your cultural norms I won't be confined
Track Name: Protect And Serve
You hear the sirens sounding now your on the run
The cops are after you but you don't know what you've done
Committed no crime but they boot down your door
Gun in your face telling you to hit the door
I don't give a damn what you have to say
I never have and never will trust the police


protect and serve how fucking absurd
soldiers of the state from which theres no escape
protect and serve how fucking absurd
we need to start today searching for another way

to live our lives as we see fit
its up to us we must resist
craving liberty we wont submit
its up to us we must resist


Can't you see now it has finally begun
Desecration of our freedom cant be undone
Police brutality at an all time high
Leaving thousands left for dead still you question why
We still feel the need to raise our voices and speak
Out against the corrupt police

to protect and serve how fucking absurd
foot soldiers of the state from which theres no escape
to protect and serve how fucking absurd
we need to start today searching for another way

to live our lives as we see fit
its up to us we must resist
craving liberty we wont submit
its up to us we must resist

The Militarization of the police
Is a tell tale sign of authoritarian state
They armed to the teeth there's no turning back
Citizens in the crosshairs and they're on the attack


Im not blind no i can see
The overreaching hand of tyranny
If they don't respect you or me
Then don't acknowledge their authority
Track Name: Who's To Blame?
why me its not fair this can't be happening
who's to blame


don't ignore it now its a part of you
You can't bottle it up like you always do
Its different this time and your not quite sure
whats the reasons are to keep quiet for


be angry because life is not fair
and quite frankly it's beyond repair

so get nice and pissed and be furious while you still can (you still can)
because the day may come when your race is run
and you're right (right back) back where you began
now who's to blame


denial cant go on now this much is true
red is all I see and I don't know what to do
confront the anger inside that has been misplaced
or fall victim to these things i refuse to face


so be angry because life is not fair
and quite frankly it's beyond repair

so get nice and pissed and be furious while you still can (you still can)
because the day may come when your race is run
and you're right (right back) back where you began
now who's to blame
