about

This entire album is extremely different from the Procreator EP we put out 2 years ago. This album deals with many separate issues like the suicide of one of idols, the lost relationships of people I once called "good friends," and dealing with the depression of implications of the government on our society. But in whole, this album deals with looking past all the negatives in our lives and moving on. We as a society take all this and make more negativity by rioting, rebelling, and slandering those who we felt did us wrong. I'm not saying to repress the issues because it feels great getting all the anger out, but to relish in the anger, to live off of it, hell to even feed off of it makes everyone so angry that all we want to do is press our anger towards another person. So if you take anything away from this album, even if you never listened to us, you're only going to stream it on Spotify, or whatever, please take this; We are all born into hate, but if we live in hate, that's all we will ever know.

Track Name: Depravity Of Man
Oh welcome back to the world you threw us all in to.
And there is nothing you can do to stop us. Tell them truth.
This world’s a lie. Bring these bad boys out to silence us all.
We’ll leave them sleeping with the fishes after we win this war. Let’s
go!

Round 2, it gets worse and worse,
We restocked the ammo, and broke all of your rules.
And in a minute you’ll be wondering why the commotion?
Down the block there’s a riot on the life we’re living.
Calm down, this battle cannot take haste.
But if it comes down to it they’ll throw guns in our face.
So if it takes us all to win, we show them the pen,
And write the names of the men left dead.
Track Name: Idler
This is what what’d you expect. We’re sick of making amends.
I’m sick of calling you friend. You don’t hold life in your hands.

We have come way too far to have you make our arms bleed again.
From the knife you call your life. This is your fault. You will never
break him again.

See slick, he’s not your puppet anymore.
He’s got a life of his own, and his own friends. Leave him alone.

I can’t believe someone like you could treat someone like this.
He’s just so ‘in love’. So he believes the words you say.
He is not some trash you can throw aside.
We are stronger now together we fight.
We are stronger now no kings in my mind.

I've seen so many strong fall for girls like you.
I've seen so many tears fall from girls like you.

And it just goes to show what could happen.
When you lay down your guard, you’ll get stabbed in the back.

And it just goes to show you’ll get stabbed in the back.

We have come way too far to have you make our arms bleed again.
From the knife you call your life. This is your fault. You will never
break him again.
Track Name: True Man
Please hold all applause. I have done nothing worth it.
And you all should be ashamed. I am just a man, I am just a man.

Fabricated and depreciated for the love of the art.
Perfect, loved and honest are all I know taken by the throat.
I've seen it all from where you see me now. I've seen it all from where
you see me now.

Let the games begin
We're hiding behind cowardly masks looking for a way to escape only
then we relapse.
And then we realize that we need more time, and then you realize that
we live a fake life.
And that's fine until you wanna escape but the deadlines tonight, you
can't finish this race.
And we're not going without a fight, so if we die tonight, It'll be the
most I feel alive.

How long can one man be a novelty
I just stand to be my own.
How long can one man be a novelty
Built myself to be my own.
There is no price tag on my head and there never will.
You cannot price the dead.

Leave my lies in sunken caskets and burn my trail.
You'll never find me and I hope we forget the man I use to be.

I now realize the truth I see, we all are living in a fake personality.

Escape watch the world fall behind me.
I would hate myself and everything around if I knew who I really was.
I can be my own man with all these fake memories behind me.
Track Name: Enabler Ft. Sean Mackowski of Attack Attack!
I feel betrayed by all you frauds that let me down in the first place.
And I just want you to know I will not let this go.

Looks like you fooled everyone to believe the word of gospel that’s
all wrong.
We’ve had enough of these foolish thoughts. Show me who really are.
Are you real, are you fake, and are the words you spit true?
We’ve had enough; get off that high horse that you called your life.
Show me why this crown made of thorns has turned all these people into
stone.

And I’ll be damned if I become a henchmen to your world that you’ve
created.
I am a slave to no man, embrace by no hands, empowered by the dead that
spoke of hope.
And I’ll end this crusade, when the fat lady sings.
But if she’s singing now, she’s not singing loud enough to hear.

I can’t take this back. No. Don’t you walk away.
You’ll just pretend I don’t exist.

I’ve been holding to a ghost. He never lets me go; he has his grip on
tight.
It tells me to keep living this lie. But I just can’t.
Because I know what is real. And I know how to cover my tracks.
So I’ll sit by and let myself be accepted by all these frauds.

It’s hard enough to say I’m wrong
But it’s so far down that I can’t breathe anymore.
What’s left for us? Why can’t we let go?
And it hurts that you hold this grudge, it hurts that you hold
this grudge.

You see just dollar signs in their eyes; I see the damage done to their
minds.
I will not have you become the man of dishonor.
So I just sit by and the guilty walk, amongst the high seas you have
fought
Hard to protect. Yet the flood is getting higher.

You can’t pretend that I don’t exist.

It’s not enough to say I'm wrong.
But it’s so far down that I can’t breathe anymore.
What’s left for us? Why can’t we let it go?
And it hurts that you hold this grudge, it hurts that you hold
this grudge.
Why can’t we let this go?

I will always let you down.
You have always let me down.
Track Name: The Lion's Gate
I will not let this anger get the best of me.
I will not let this hatred get the best of me.

We all need to feel as if we all belonged.
We all want to feel as if we all belonged.

It's only getting worse
Track Name: Departed
I saw the things they did to you
I saw the things they put you through.
They made it harder just to let you breathe and it’s just not fair.

But please, hear me out just once.
I’ve been there too so I know how you feel right now.
But in the end you will come out strong. It’s all worth it.

I can’t make you back down but I just want you to know you’re not
worthless.
I know for fact you are stronger than this. Stronger than them.
Stronger than us.

I beg for you to reconsider this action.
That you’re making. But I feel I must try.
I know you would say the same thing to me.
If I gave up now. I beg you to come down!
I know it’s not my choice but I feel I must try.

In the valley of the beast we are the wolves amongst the sheep!

You’re so much stronger, we can see through this mess.

That you call life. But you must step down from the ledge,
You just can’t give up. You’re worth so much more than this.

If you jump right now, I will lose you.
And that is something I am not ready to do.
Please hear me out, I’m here right now.
With nothing but hope to give you.
I know you hear me.
And I’m not going without you.

And if you need a hand to hold I’ll be there,
With nothing but my hope to share.
And we will make it through.
We are strong, and we all belong.
And no one can tell you any different.
We will make it through this mess
Track Name: Minority Report
You must take back what is yours
You must take

“This is to fit their liberal agenda
So many men worked hard to get to where they are today”
If that were true we would all be happy in this man made economy.
We work hard just to help the business
And if you call this business then I call this fraud.
Look at these starving people, when they needed you, you just turned
and ran.

And I’m sick, I’m so sick, I’m a bad man, arrest me.
They’ll take that to point they’ll will actually detain me.
American citizen locked in his own home.
While we looks to the people meant to hold our hope.

This is how The Hunger Games became real.
And 1984 looks more like 2012.
And The end of the world is caused by this utopia turned frail.

I’m not sure what we need to do. All I’m saying is you got to get mad.
Were in a crisis more than ever before. You got to get Mad as Hell.

We are not ready to fight.
But we must take back what is ours.
We must fight to take our rights, we can’t let go.
We have to take back whats ours.

Look, we got to let everything fall into place.
But what happens when there is no space we can place.
We fall back hard, then we lose our train of thought.
This is when it get tough cause though doesn’t mean much when you’re
alone in the dark
This is your chance to stand up.
And when they start the violence, I will stand up against them.
Can’t slow down, won’t stop now we will shot this our Armageddon.
No time to make amends so scream if you’re apart of us.
If no one is Anonymous, everyone’s anonymous.

We’ve been sitting too long, our voice have gone silent for so long
We got to let them know who’s truly in charge,
The last time we were unsatisfied we went hard,
A country known long for its fraud.
Now the guilty party has to know how to protect the people from scars.


I’m not sure what we need to do. All I’m saying is you got to get mad.
Were in a crisis more than ever before. You got to get Mad as Hell.

Looks like we’ve been the dying breed all along.
But at the end of it all, They’ll see us fall.
As Big Brother watches. Stand tall.
All the battles we've seem to evolve.
All of this comes to us, we gotta take back whats ours.

You've failed us, we’ll fail you. Let’s even the score.
Track Name: Savior Self
This is who we are
And you won’t change us, because you don’t like what we say.
Get over yourself, we’re not here to be saved.
I dare you to write us off again.
We are sick of your obsession. We do not need your approval.
We’re through. We’ve had enough of this.
We are sick of being caught up in this mess.

DON’T GET ME WRONG
I appreciate the effort brought forth.
But everything you did happen to backfire.
Our rep has fallen cause of your actions.

Don’t act like we’re the bad guy. You knew this from the start.
You got no game to back you up.
Don’t like this is a surprise. You knew this from the start.
We’re all too damned to walk the earth.

This is our life. Seeing all our allies help us realize
This is our time and we will fight together.
Who we are is not what you want
This is our life not yours. The Damned will overcome
We see the terror as we’re all divided.
Or flood the streets as we all stand united.

I’ve lost so many good friends fall cause of this corrupted system.
You took what you could from us just to ease your way to the top.
Looks like we figured you out. You just came forth sell us out.
No more games, we are done being slaves. We will now take our crown.

This is all we’ve ever know.
As you just sit there on your thrown. (Where we belong)
I will not give up anymore.
I will not give up my home.

You lied to us and now you crossed the line.
We had enough of this impure design.
And all courage you lacked has stabbed us right in the back
We will stand back as all our soldiers will begin their attack.

I’ll watch your kingdom fall. (Step down from your throne).

I am the leader here. I am what made you who are today, so all of you
shall bow.
Cause at the end I will show you what to do and you shall show me
respect.
And all shall bow.

Step down from your throne.
Track Name: Extortionist
I want to start a revolution.
We're taking back what is ours.

So where'd you go when everything died?
It's like you got something to hide.
I will tear you down and take away your god-like crown.
Everyone will see what you are.
Should've known you would never get far.
To kill the dream is all your good for.

I'll break the truth from your lies.
I'll take away everything we despise.
We will cast this world of all the broken dreams and sing.
This world will never be forgotten as we part our seperate ways.
We live, we stand, on who we are today.

Now who's the one to blame.
How heavy is that burden of shame.
How hard is it to close your eyes?
To watch everyone of your dreams die.
It's like, what choice would you make?
Would you rather keep an honest mistake.
When every word was a lie.
Or just make it a final goodbye.
I don't regret a word I said.
If you were still hear we'd be left for dead.
Let us bleed the message that we stand for.

Now who's the one to blame.
How heavy is that burden of shame.
How hard is it to close your eyes?
As everyone of your dreams die.

I am who I am today because of you.
Breaking down these walls that once held a purpose.
We continue to go on strong.
It was you that held us back all along.

Our hearts will sing the message that we stand for.

I am who I am today because of you.
Breaking down these walls that once held a purpose.
We continue to go on strong.
It was you that held us back all along.

I'll break the truth from your lies.
I'll take away everything we despise.
We will cast this world of all the broken dreams and sing.
This world will never be forgotten as we part our seperate ways.
We live, we stand, on who we are today.

Now who's the one to blame.
How heavy is that burden of shame?
How hard is it to close your eyes?
To watch everyone of your dreams die.
We continue to go on strong.
Now who's the one to blame.
How heavy is that burden of shame.
How hard is it to close your eyes?
To watch everyone of your dreams die.
It was you that held us back all along
Track Name: Halo Effect
We’re not unstoppable monsters, Were just a group of people trying to
show you.
There is more to this life you lead. So with that said, take it all
down.

Drop the anger. Don’t let the darkness consume you.
Drop the anger. Don’t let this lifestyle consume you.

Let go, this is our time to shine now.
We are stronger then ever before.
This is our time, now we must take what is ours.
And we will stand together to prepare this war.

Let go, this is our time to shine now.
We are stronger then ever before.
This is our time, and we must take what is ours.
And we will stand together to prepare this war.

There is more than this life you lead.
Take it all down.

Drop the anger.
