Track Name: Forced In Defense
This is where I’m fighting for
This is where I stand
So please back away from me
I’m taking matters in my own hand

The way you think
The way you act
Doesn’t make sense to me
The only thing you’re making clear
Is how you’re causing grief

Consideration there is none
Compassion no where to be seen
You only care about yourself
Fuck off time to sweep things clean

You can’t destroy it
You never will
I’m standing firmly
And I hold my ground
Track Name: No Victory Without Strife
Down on my knees
Try getting up
Can’t get a grip
I’m so fucked up

Hard to keep focus
Face the truth
I’m down again

Can’t stand on my own feet
Figure out the things I need
Live without the things I don’t
I fucked up again

Life is like one big fight
A new round every day
No referee in sight
Facing your own worst enemy
Put on my boxing gloves
Get in the ring take a swing
Taking punches in my mouth
Try not to get knocked out

No victory without strife
Track Name: Antagonized
Never in this life again
Never take a beating twice
I put up with to much of this shit
Cross me again you’ll pay the price

I hate what you’ve done to me
Internally you made me bleed
Treated me like I’m no one
Here I am can’t beat me now

Provoking people putting them down
Take it out on others
Push me to far

Face up to what you have done
The shit you shoveled I overcome
I will confront you with yourself

I’ve bin through many things in my past
You thought I would not last
I turned out stronger
I’m still standing I proved you wrong

And now I let go of the past
Look towards the future
I turned out stronger
I’m still standing I proved you wrong
Track Name: Infirmity Of Purpose
I know this won’t break me
This set back won’t set me back
Have to keep faith in me
I will get there you will see

No way back just straight ahead
Look to the future
Don’t Live in the past
Be content with what you have
Don’t live your life in regrets
Enjoy the moment while it lasts
You never know what is coming next
Don’t live your life in discontent
Before you know your life will end

Live your Life
Track Name: Inanimate
We’ve bin kept brain-dead
Systematic day by day
It’s how the rules work
In this society

There is no free will
No choices we can make
It’s an illusion
The world is one big fake

Everything is pre-made up
Feeding our brain how to think
Directions we must take
Living like a commercial slave

It all comes down to these things
Power Money is everything
Propagation till we die
Domination of commercial lies

I use my mind
I use what I’ve got
I use my mind

Where is this headed
Where does this go
Vicious circles everyone one goal
Use your mind
See trough the lies
Don’t believe what is said and done
Just use your mind
Track Name: Resurrection
Down and depressed
Don’t fit in with the rest
Life sometimes feels like one big test
Will I pass or go down under stress
Still don’t know what to do next

Can I go on
Or Throw in the towel
Keep my head down obedient and follow
Is this really me
How can it be
I feel like going mad on the edge of insanity

Time is running out
Keep myself together
Time to let go
Keep the faith and I know

I will rise up
I will rise up again
I will rise up
No matter what is thrown at me

I will rise up
I will rise up again
I will rise up
Keep a clear head look into the future

Regrets regrets
Some things I’ve done
Some things I’ve said
Move on move on
Let the past be passed
Start moving on
Can’t quit can’t quit
Can’t give up
Even if I had it
Hold on cause I know
When I believe
