Track Name: Smash Through It All
Born into a world of pain and neglect
I fought hard to find my own self-respect
Heart filled with hatred and a mind filled with rage
A self-destructive path is what I engaged

I found a new lease on life, no longer filled with pain and strife
So much more in front of me, I was blind I could not see
So much love surrounding me - my brothers, friends and family
A sense of brotherhood and loyalty, this is what it means to me

Life is pain don’t let it bring you down, smash through it all
Beat it into the ground
Track Name: Untruth
You find it so hard to tell the truth
Manipulation and lies are living proof
You’ve compromised all that you were
The truth is not just a blur

Seeking the truth
Is hard to find in a belly of lies
Truly compulsive
Your comfort lies in your own untruths

Pushed everyone close so far away
You’ve made your bed and now you must lay
Forked tongued lies are all that you spray
With a mouth of disease don’t fucking look my way

You never used to live like this
Now your lies have become your truth
Finding comfort in what you create
Your web of lies will now seal your fate
Track Name: Cold As Life
Fighting against my mind and soul
Darkness consumes and tries to take control
A negative mentality provokes my insanity
That daily fucking struggle my only reality

Each day I fight
To face this life

Each day I fight
To face this life of despair and agony
Each day I fight
To face this life of pain and suffering

As dark as night and cold as life
I fight to make it out alive

Cold as life
Track Name: No Benevolence
Humanity, we slowly rot
Dog eat dog at every cost
Through my eyes I see a world
Of fake smiles and fucking lies
No empathy and no respect
In a world with no regrets

Countless people lose their lives
Famine, disease and heinous crimes
Look around and hear the cries
No benevolence
No heart

Where’s your fucking heart?
