Track Name: Sickening
sickening

send a guy away for life for selling rocks. but, it would be wise to buy some phizer stock.
healthy living is the key. too bad that seems to be a luxury.

there are fewer doctors to care for you and me but, more legal pushers who won't let the junkies go free
CVS stopped selling cigarettes. there's no health concern. they just make more selling percocets.

sickening!! it sickens me
sickening!! doesn't.. IT MAKE YOU SICK!?

it was never about affordability. it was just another shakedown from insurance companies.
a man who was once treatable is now terminally ill.. but, he aint gonna go alone. his killers will be killed..

sickening!! it sickens me
sickening!! doesn't.. IT MAKE YOU SICK!?

feeling down? here's a pill.. side effects? take another pill..

send a guy away for life for selling rocks. but, it would be wise to buy some phizer stock.
healthy living is the key. too bad that seems to be a luxury.
Track Name: In Plain Sight
in plain sight

keeping us in line by shifting the blame. all the while the rules are changing so late in the game. too confused and pacified to know its time to fight. no paranoid conspiracies, it's right there in plain sight.

the damage cannot be undone. from the truth, you can no longer run.

your whole life is a lie. but, you cant bullshit me. behind that thin veil, a clown is all I see. fuck you and your beliefs! they're nothing to respect. you can't admit them publicly so, what should you expect.

the damage cannot be undone. from the truth, you can no longer run.
Track Name: Complacency
complacency

trying my best but can't get ahead. or, is that a delusion built up in my head?.
hindered by procrastination. why do I have a hard time finding motivation?

complacency. stuck in a vacancy. it's plain to see the times I've been my own worst enemy

I've been afraid to take a chance. portrayed myself as a victim of circumstance. it's time to eradicate my fears. too many "i'll do it tomorrow's" have added up to years.

complacency. stuck in a vacancy. it's plain to see the times I've been my own worst enemy

TODAY! time to get things done
TODAY! time to make things right
TODAY! time to get things done
TODAY! time to make things right
Track Name: Mug of Poison
mug of poison

voluntarily injecting venom? makes no sense.. but, its exactly what I do when I think of things that I resent.
yeah, I may be miserable but, at least I know i'm right. I can make amends, and be at peace. why is this a fight??

when I think of things that I despise POISON!
when I picture your demise POISON!
when I think of things that I despise POISON!
when I picture your demise POISON!

drinking my morning mug of poison, waiting all day for you to die..

my work suffers as you go about your business. I don't wanna hear a word about forgiveness.
you've done it all wrong. to that, you won't confess. but, I gotta clean up my side of the street not make a bigger mess..


when I think of things that I despise POISON!
when I picture your demise POISON!
when I think of things that I despise POISON!
when I picture your demise POISON!

drinking my morning mug of poison, waiting all day for you to die..
but, its only killing me!

slowly killing me..
Track Name: Vice Grip
vice grip

they shut the factory down. left behind a ghost town. where there used to be a thriving community.
a small sacrifice to make for the money they'd save. discard working people for sweatshop slaves..

that's what they want us to be!

blame all the unions. distort the truth. divide and conquer. walk off with the loot.
more money, more power. they tighten their hold. to the company store, we've given our soul

monsters! impossible to feed. their insatiable need has made it HARDER AND HARDER TO BREATHE!
will I ever make it? they take and they take. making it HARDER AND HARDER TO BREATHE!

blame all the unions. distort the truth. divide and conquer. walk off with the loot.
more money, more power. they tighten their hold. to the company store, we've given our soul

monsters! impossible to feed. their insatiable need has made it HARDER AND HARDER TO BREATHE!
will I ever make it? they take and they take. making it HARDER AND HARDER TO BREATHE!

and their grip is getting tighter.
suburban blight.
it's looking darker not brighter.
and we're not showing much of a fight.

harder and harder to breathe x2

HARDER AND HARDER TO BREATHE! X2
Track Name: Rebuilt
rebuilt

so many people have come and gone. many just went through a phase.
those who have stuck around through it all, your efforts have not been in vain.
with gentrification and other "progress" they tried to chase us away.
this one's for those who wouldn't accept that and built new places to play.

from the basement to the stage, the momentum as been regained REBUILT!
the land scape may have changed but the spirit has always remained. REBUILT!

to the bands who paved the way, respect should always be paid.
especially those who have always stayed and didn't come back just for pay.
fuck band wagon jumpers who go with the flow. dick riders following trends.
the real rode out the storm and would proudly do it again.


from the basement to the stage, the momentum as been regained REBUILT!
the land scape may have changed but the spirit has always remained. REBUILT!

so many said it was dead and, we'd never see it again. FUCK THEM!
this is for those who still believed and rebuilt the scene again..

FROM THE BASEMENT
TO THE STAGE
THE MOMENTUM
HAS BEEN REGAINED
