Track Name: Ready, Go
READY, GO!

Do you hear that silence in the room
That’s the calm before the storm
The cause of the hair standing up on the back of your neck
Finding the reason you were born
It’s your reason to simply breath
The point of life is what you make it
No regrets or missed opportunities

Can you feel the unrest
The anger tightens in your chest
Can’t just sit here silent
Ready to unleash justice

Don’t be the one who fuckin’ fakes it
One second to the next and then you’re gone
Actions speak louder than words
Make them the ones you live your life on
Stand up for what you believe
You only live once and then you’re gone
Make the life you live the one that you deserve

Can you feel the unrest
The anger tightens in your chest
Can’t just sit here silent
Ready to unleash justice

Wear your scars, wear your scars with pride

The excuses stacking up like bricks to build a wall
Blocking out what’s out of the norm or so its fuckin’ called
To be original and deep, compassionate and free
Sounds like a fuckin’ person that I want to be
But I strive to survive, to flourish and to thrive
To work so damn hard and be proud of the life I’ve lived
You only get this one chance so make the best of it
The life you’ve lived, the impact you’ve made
Live loud, and never fuckin’ quit!
Track Name: Stood Up For Brunch, PT 2
STOOD UP FOR BRUNCH pt.2

You lied! You lied! You lied! You lied!
You lied! You lied again…again
The trust! The trust! The trust we had
The trust never again….never again

You steal
You crush your own soul
Traded in for drugs no future to behold
The ones who love you they fade in the distance
The fog of your next hit
The haze of your matrix
This world and lifestyle you’ve created for yourself
Its all about you and nobody else
It’s all about what others can do for you
The damage you’ve caused or how you’ve squandered your youth

But someday you’ll wake up only to realize you’ve got no life to live and no will to survive
No one who’s got your back or pushing you forward in life
No reason to go on or reason to love life..no reason to go on reason to love life

Your soul is fading, your existence to be lost
You’ve already lost everything and I’m fucking next
You lie, you cheat, you steal from those you love
You’ve whored yourself for drugs you don’t know the meaning of love
You’ve burnt every bridge too bad to be rebuilt not that you ever cared but it’s me you truly hurt
You’ve burnt every bridge too bad to be rebuilt not that you ever cared but it’s me you truly hurt

But someday you’ll wake up only to realize you’ve got no life to live and no will to survive
No one who’s got your back or pushing you forward in life
No reason to go on or reason to love life..no reason to go on reason to love life


You lied! You lied! You lied! You lied!
You lied! You lied again…again
The trust! The trust! The trust we had
The trust never again….never again

I’ve heard it once you’ve said it twice
You lied to my face, I’ve been denied
I’ve been abused by you before but now I’m much wiser than I was before again..
Track Name: Hollywood Homicide
HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE
Mirror mirror on the wall tell me all of my defaults
Everyday you look in the mirror vision keeps on getting clearer
Facelift, botox is that what you need to look like these models in these magazines
Hair just right, clothes are in fashion, all you do is just imagine

Perfect image of a lying mirage
Scam of the century
Aimed at insecurity
You know you shouldn’t care what they think about your looks but everywhere you go its sight before mind in this
Hollywood homicide
Hollywood homicide
Hollywood homicide
Hollywood homicide

As a women you’re expected to be sweet
Nails done, hair curled, light on your feet
Well I’m a woman too and hear me fucking roar
I won’t let your idea of beauty define me anymore

Perfect image of a lying mirage
Scam of the century
Aimed at insecurity
You know you shouldn’t care what they think about your looks but everywhere you go its sight before mind in this
Hollywood homicide
Hollywood homicide
Hollywood homicide
Hollywood homicide

This isn’t what I asked for
I know were here for so much more
It’s taken me stepping away from things to realize I want nothing changed
I want to be the woman like never before seen
I want to live my life with no boundaries
To scream every word like it hurts to be weak
The energy that flows through me will power the minds of thousands to think free!

Track Name: Equalizer
EQUALIZER

It is written in the United States constitution that a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

A gun, a machine, this is what we fight with as human beings
The right to fight and protect our lives
The right to fight against genocide
We’ve seen throughout history when this right is taken away
It’s those who end up dead at the end of the gun they gave away
Shoot to live not to kill, shoot to live not to kill

The founding fathers of this nation gave us the tools to fight oppression
To fight tyranny, to fight genocide, for this gun on my side I fight with pride
The founding fathers of this nation gave us the tools to fight oppression
To fight tyranny, to fight genocide, for this gun on my side I fight with pride

I refuse to be a victim
The one who’s caught in a sticky situation
My fists can only get me so far but my gun is the ultimate equalizer
Small town problems with a world-wide perspective
Hear me clear I’m not the one to mess with
Without my weapon I’ll never be
My gun defends but does not define me

The founding fathers of this nation gave us the tools to fight oppression
To fight tyranny, to fight genocide, for this gun on my side I fight with pride
The founding fathers of this nation gave us the tools to fight oppression
To fight tyranny, to fight genocide, for this gun on my side I fight with pride

Don’t be scared just educate yourselves
The powers to be are temporary
We’ll protect ourselves and not depend on anybody else
We’ll arm ourselves and know our rights
I hope it doesn’t come to it but if I have to I’m prepared to fight
You get my back and I’ll get yours
Its revolution time, tomorrow is ours!


It is written in the United States constitution that a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. This is our right in which our fathers and forefathers laid down their fuckin lives. Without my weapon I’ll never be. My gun defends but does not define me.
Track Name: We All Bleed Red
WE ALL BLEED RED

No matter what the color
No matter what the sex
We all bleed red
We all bleed red
No room in this world
For prejudice
We all bleed red
We all bleed red

Since the dawn of time we’ve been plagued with a disease
One that keeps us crippled, the demise of humanity
Racism, sexism its fascism all the same
When will we clear this hurdle and finally end it’s reign

Koi bhi boli ho
Kasa bhi rung
Sabka khoon laal hai
Sabka khoon laal hai
Hum sub ek sai
Jaisa bhi dhung
Sabka khoon laal hai
Sabka khoon laal hai

When will these isms end the answer may be never
But as long as we give a fuck it’s not such an endeavor
One day, one world, harmony might be a dream
But today, tonight, it’s enough to make me scream!

Burn down the borders in your mind
Because there’s only one race in all humankind
Any excuse of ancestors beliefs handed down
Of sticking to your own race for reproduction seem so profound
Prick your finger, slit your wrist, you’ll bleed the same red just as us
Change your future change your mind, tonight it’s us, all humankind
Prick your finger, slit your wrist, you’ll bleed the same red just as us
Change your future change your mind, tonight it’s us, all humankind

No matter what the color
No matter what the sex
We all bleed red
We all bleed red
No room in this world
For prejudice
We all bleed red
We all bleed red
Throughout the ages it’s happened again and again
The more we are different, the more we are the same
We’ve come such a long way but still so far to go
Brothers, sisters, join me and we’ll make tomorrow ours!
Look at our history all the lives that have been lost because of this
Track Name: Land of the Greed
LAND OF THE GREED
We have to suffer the decisions you make, we spend all our lives in debt
on top of the fact your trying to conquer the world, we’re on to your shit
this system of lies and you’re victim full crimes, capitalism makes no sense
we live off the one percents’ dimes and we can still live our lives in excess

Live our lives filthy with greed (Come and…)
consume way more than we need (…take it!)
capitalize off how much they bleed (Come and…)
how much shit can you digest (…take it!)

(Background vox) Spread democracy around the world
press our religion on all the boys and girls
bring democracy and you’re in bliss
say bye to your culture, hello consumerist

There’s no healthcare for you
The rich get tax cuts
The bank gets bailed out while the middle class gets canceled out
Making it lower vs higher in this war of classes
Waging war for fashion
Looking for any excuse to lash out
And now we see what it looks like in a broken society
Every man for himself,
Just stockpiling and saving
Just sitting and waiting
In fear contemplating
Just sitting and awaiting for his doomsday to appear
99%, a class war at its best
Brother states succeeding
Country in a political mess
What seems to be the answer when a countries in crisis
How about ban assault weapons, How about erase that constitutional right
You’re a legal citizen one day and then with the stroke of a pen
You’re made to give up your 2nd amendment
It’s just another way of saying the powers to be
Know what’s best, another way of keeping its citizens on our knees

Now it’s the time to decide do you have the will to survive
Do you fight? Do you go into the night
Do you take action in the streets
Do you stalk your senators urging them to make the decision you know if fuckin’ right
Do you fight do you fight
For what you know is fuckin’ right
Do you fight do you fight
For what you know is fuckin’ right
Do you believe what’s happening in our own fucking city streets
Our government turning against its citizens demanding your weapons to be retrieved
You’re not trusted to take up arms, nor are you trusted to be truly free
You’re not here to protect yourselves just fall in line, surrender and we’ll call it free
It’s just another way to keep a class war going in society
To keep the public distracted from the truths lying underneath
Our freedom is at risk and a war coming to our front door
It’s something we’ve been fighting for years and now what’s more
It still takes shock and terror for you to open up your eyes
Look up at the intrusive 24-7 stoplight cameras that plague our skies
And still you refuse and say it doesn’t matter to fucking vote
But complain and say it doesn’t affect you personally but no,
Just increase your dosage so your first world problems are at the top of your needs
Keep your head down, run with the bulls and enjoy living your fucked life on your knees
Track Name: Crutch
CRUTCH

Bitching on a microphone, telling others how to live their lives
What to do when faced with opposition
It’s so damn pathetic, another epidemic
Crossing through the front lines of your fucking institution

Are you fully prepared to put your faith in me I’ll be everything you need I’m your fuckin’ Jesus Christ

Corporate media makes me sick
Corporate media you fuckin’ dick
Corporate media makes me blind
Corporate media a waste of my time

Are you fully prepared to put your faith in me I’m the excuse you’re looking for I’m your fuckin Muhammad

Crosses on your fuckin’ eyes stiches on your fuckin’ mouth
The poison deep inside that’s what it’s all about now

Are you fully prepared to put your faith in me I’ll be everything you need I’m your fuckin jesus Christ
Are you fully prepared to put your faith in me I’m the excuse you’re looking for I’m your fuckin Muhammad

The pressures getting too deep now you can’t control the outcome

Are you prepared to die in this fight you call your life
Swine bird or all your fears combined
It’s a way to keep your ass in line
