Track Name: Landslide
A quaint surprise to see a countdown. A path blazed by human action, profit and greed.
Track Name: Recognize
force fed to live the words of my fathers lies
but i gotta decide, will i recognize
privileged lives that take hold from birth til death
but i'm trying my best, to fully recognize
and apply awareness of how my skin gives sigh
brutality wears a badge and says "i had to shoot"
rewarded by a foul system that says "we were justified".
still, skin gives sigh
Track Name: Worker's Compensation
bled dry
by lies of a
system that
will pass on the profit
and they say that it's fair
and they say it works
tell me what do we say?
tell me what can we say?
their fairy tale
trickle down
is there compensation
for mere survival?
Track Name: Narcissus
Please excuse my irrational behavior
And a life full of regrets and selfishness
like a bullet and a target,
Caught between the past and the present
I can try my best but I know my best
Will never be good enough
The future holds a weight I cannot bare, I will not bare
Track Name: A Worker Applies Heat
Blessed with a debt.
Weaken our knees,
Soften our spines

Punched in for another forty.
Wages below any standard
The bare minimum won't let us scrape by
with what we already can't afford.
Jumping without a net.

No guilt for keeping everyone below the poverty line
The price of living
The cost of dying
Track Name: Bury My Shell At Wounded Knee
Manipulated history
Penned by authors
willing to forget
a trail of broken lives

Text book with a biased history
Barely a trace of the indigenous
They came with disease
and rewarded a curse.

Forced relocation
at the cost of countless lives.
Wiping out an entire people.
Nothing can cover the shame.
Track Name: Take Notice
how do we define
what's smart for us to fear?
a toolkit to divide
the monsters and the men
and i bet that they'll be
somebody other than me
and i bet that they'll be
so very different from me
and the buzzwords
define an image
defined by color
defined by race
to foster hate.
Track Name: The End Times
insecure gods
make time stand still
such fragile grounds
we'll tear from the roots
the end of this time
of darkness and fear
let's close the book on
what's time has passed by
let's tear this facade apart.
