Track Name: Life Before Your Job
Trapped in this endless cycle
this rut has got to end
Day in day out
This shit has got to stop
these work days go by so slow
I will be free of this
Of these chains called jobs
This Monday Friday shit
Will Break my fucking will

I wish I didn't have this much responsability
I just want freedom from this constant head ache
I Don't want to waste my time stuck at a dead end job

I put up with too much shit
Track Name: Control
I reach inside myself to push down this anger and hate

Gritting my teeth and clenching my fist
the anger boils I can't take this risk

trying to not let hate get the best of me this rage i feel is taking over me
instead I'll let my fist do the talking
Shut your fucking mouth or keep on walking

I reach inside myself to push down this anger and hate
Track Name: Waste Bag
You'll be dead by 30
If you keep living like this
You'll be dead by 30
At this steady pace
You'll be dead by 30
Your life's fucking waste
you'll be dead by 30
I hope this puts you in your place
Track Name: Equality
Equality is all that I am looking for
My choices are different and My mind is pure
But I'm not like you So I'm ridiculed
What I put in my body is no concern to you
I dont know why you act like this
Track Name: Rat King
Sometimes I wish no one knew my name cuz the way people talk makes my stomach turn.
A swarm of rats intertwined at the tails
A rat king is what you have all become

The reactions of your peers is all that you crave
Any juicy gossip will sate your fucked up lust
Drag my name through the social dirt
Disrespect my choices for a cheap laugh

Sometimes I wish no one knew my name cuz the way people talk makes my stomach turn.

X3
Turning Friends against each other gets you off

A rat king is what you will always be
