Track Name: Broken Man
CAN’T, CAN’T LOOK AWAY

LOOK AT THE FACES
THAT LOOK AT ME
TWISTED FIGURE
HAUNTED FIEND
BROKEN BOTTLES
ASH SOAKED SHEETS
EYES OF VENOM
FAMILIAR TEETH
WHO IS THIS MAN
THAT LOOKS AT ME?
STRIPPED OF REASON
LOST HIS FEET
LEANING ONTO
WHAT WE KNEW
THE TIMES ARE GONE
IT’S ON YOU

SIT AND PRETEND
WRAP UP YOUR SKIN
FLASHBACK THE IMAGE
LOVE CAN’T GET IN
THIS POISON
AND VISIONS
WEIGHING IN
CAUSTIC ACTIONS
GRIPPED TIL THE END

TAKE, TAKE AWAY
THE VISION’S GONE

HOLLOW IMAGE
BROKEN MAN

CAN’T, CAN’T LOOK AWAY
Track Name: Another World
GO AND LOOK PAST THE EYES OF THE DEAD
BROKEN AND BATTERED
WOUNDS TO THE HEAD
HEARTS COLLECTED,
SOILED AND SWOLLEN.
NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS,
I LOOK AT THE TOLL,

AND I LOOK THE OTHER WAY,
TURN AND SAY,
ANOTHER WORLD’S PROBLEM
ANOTHER WORLD’S.

HOLDING THE WEIGHT OF IT ALL
ON THEIR SHOULDERS,
IGNORE THE BODIES
AS THEY GROW COLDER.
VIOLENCE TO COME,
WAIT IN THE FADE.
IT WON’T BE LONG,
SHOULD COME IN SPADES.

I LOOK THE OTHER WAY,
TURN AND SAY,
ANOTHER WORLD’S PROBLEM
ANOTHER WORLD’S.

NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY,
NO MATTER THE END,
DEATH BY HAND OF PROFIT,
FOR YOU AND YOUR KIN.

IRON CONTENTION,
MELTS ITS WAY IN.
NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY,
YOU’RE NEXT MY FRIEND.

TURN THE BLIND EYE OF HATE
TURN THE BLIND EYE.
Track Name: Overstep
“WE KNEW WE COULDN’T MAKE IT ILLEGAL TO BE EITHER AGAINST THE WAR OR BLACK, BUT BY GETTING THE PUBLIC TO ASSOCIATE THE HIPPIES WITH MARIJUANA AND BLACKS WITH HEROIN. AND THEN CRIMINALIZING BOTH HEAVILY, WE COULD DISRUPT THOSE COMMUNITIES. WE COULD ARREST THEIR LEADERS, RAID THEIR HOMES, BREAK UP THEIR MEETINGS, AND VILIFY THME NIGHT AFTER NIGHT ON THE EVENING NEWS. DID WE KNOW WE WERE LYING ABOUT THE DRUGS? OF COURSE WE DID.”

-JOHN EHRLICHMAN
AIDE TO PRESIDENT NIXON

RISING FORM,
TAKING HOLD.
PEOPLE LOCKED AWAY.
BROKEN FAMILIES.

OVERSTEP
REDIRECT
GO AND POINT THE BLAME.

OVERSTEP
SUSPECT
WASH AWAY THE NAMES.

OVERSTEP
COALESCE
MEN ARE LOCKED AWAY.

OVERSTEP
SUPPRESS
COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS.

RACIST HANDS,
PLUNGE DEEP IN.
PEOPLE LOCKED AWAY.
BROKEN COMMUNITIES

RACIST MACHINES,
OILED IN BLOOD.
CREATION OF THE CELL
OUTCAST, THEY STOOD.

VILE CONDITIONS,
FALLEN DISGRACE.
HOPELESS ENDEAVOR.
MANIPULATED,
BLINDED HAZE.
Track Name: Don't Forget
DON’T FORGET
WHAT’S AT STAKE.

FORWARD FORCE.
MARCHING ON.

KEEP YOUR HEAD
HELD HIGH.

STARING THROUGH THE ASHES OF MY OWN MORTALITY
COMING UNDER PRESSURE,
IT IS SOMETHING UNDER ME.
THE HOLES, THEY BREAK,
AND WHAT’S AT STAKE,
REMAINS TO BE SEEN.
FOLLOWING THE FOOTSTEPS,
BLINDED BY THE GLEEM.

STAND UP,
BREAK DOWN,
HOLD THE TETHER.
NO MATTER THE FORCE,
WE’LL MAKE IT TOGETHER.

DON’T FORGET,
WHAT’S AT STAKE.

KEEP YOUR HEAD HELD HIGH.
Track Name: Your Bad Habits
EVERYTHING BOILS
DOWN IN THE PROCESS,
WEIGHTED BY TOIL,
AND ALL OUR REGRETS.
WHAT DO WE DO,
WHEN ARE TURNED
AGAINST OURSELVES,
RUSTED AND SPURNED?

WALLS OF TERROR
SURROUND YOU,
BRICK BY BRICK ACCRUE.
YOUR BAD HABITS,
CEMENTED THROUGH.

WANTING TO FALL,
AND CONFORM.
LEAVING THE TORTURE,
MODERN BORN,
LEFT TO US,
LONGING TO BE,
YEARNING TO CALL
OURSELVES FREE.

WALLS OF TERROR
SURROUND YOU,
BRICK BY BRICK ACCRUE.
YOUR BAD HABITS,
CEMENTED THROUGH.

GIVE UP THE HABIT.
ERASE THE PAIN.
CHANGE YOUR ACTIONS,
WE’RE NOT ALL THE SAME.
POSSESS THE IMAGE,
YOU WISH TO SEE.
DESPITE THE PAIN,
WE’LL DO IT WITH EASE.

YOUR BAD HABITS,
DEFINE YOU.
WRECKING YOUR HEAD,
WITH THE THINGS THAT YOU DO.
