Track Name: Unfortunate Truth
The Unfortunate truth,
since I've been able to crawl.
Mislead in my youth,
put my back to the fucking wall.

Unfortunate truth,
what they don't want you to know.
Life becomes harder,
with every inch that you grow.

The unfortunate truth,
they've kept it from you.
Don't believe what you've heard,
you've been lied to

The Unfortunate truth,
since I've been able to crawl.
Mislead in my youth,
put my back to the fucking wall.

The unfortunate truth,
a lie with each breath.
They promise you a life,
but you're only guaranteed death.

Unfortunate.
Unfortunate.
Unfortunate.
Unfortunate truth.

The unfortunate truth,
a lie with each breath.
They promise you a life,
but you're only guaranteed death.

Unfortunate truth.
Track Name: Thrown In With General Population
We're tied to the city.
We're tied to the streets.
Tethered to the concrete,
and these shackles around our feet.

We've been thrown in with the scum.
We've been thrown in with the bums.
We'll die on the sidewalks,
when our time fucking comes.

We're left here all alone.
Left with no hope.
Talking only to myself,
with no way to cope.

No hope for our escape.
Left to face our fate.
We're trapped in here together,
to stew in our own hate.

I'm chained to everything I hate.
Chained to everything I hate.

We've been thrown in with the bums.
We've been thrown in with the scum.
We'll die on the sidewalks,
when our time fucking comes.

Left here all alone.
Left here with no hope.
Talking only to myself,
with no way to cope.

We'll try to break out,
but we'll sit here and rot.
The only release we have,
is freedom of thought.

When we've finally had enough,
when we finally break,
we'll turn on each other,
and see how much we can take.

But I've got a mind like iron.
A bullet proof mentality.
But I only smile when I sleep,
because I escape the pains of reality.

My mind splits in two.
It's because I know it's true.
Track Name: Birth is the Shackle, Life is the Chain
If I ever would have know this world was only scrutiny and lies,
I would have wished to never come here,
I would have never opened my eyes.

And in all my years,
out of all my growing fears,
what scares me most,
is I may never find my place here.

The older I get,
The colder I become.
I can't remember what it's like to feel,
all I am is numb.

My days run together.
My Head starts to spin.
I rarely find sleep.
I spread myself to thin.

I drive myself crazy.
I rack my mind.
I hope for a peace,
that I may never find.

But I want to change.
I want to love.
I want to find,
the things I'm void of.

But the pressure of this world,
it drives me insane.
Birth is the shackle.
life is the Chain.

Birth is the shackle,
life is the chain.

Born to be broken.

Birth is the shackle,
life is the chain.
Track Name: Dog on a Chain
Heart full of hate.
Unstable mental state.
The pain and angst I get from this fucking place.
It's the way you walk.
It's the shit you talk.
I wish you'd say it to my fucking face.

I start to seethe.
I grind my teeth.
All I see is you looking down on me.
I hold my breath.
I pray for death.
Because you're talking to me how you shouldn't be.

And if I get the chance,
I'll kick you're fucking teeth out,
Because when I hear your voice,
I want to blow my fucking brains out.

I'm a fucking mental case,
with nothing left to lose.
I can end this fucking pain,
anytime I choose.
You think your safe,
don't put down your guard.
It's the biggest ones,
that fall so hard.

Pulling,
barking,
fighting,
I'm a dog on a chain.

Dog on a chain.
Dog on a chain.
Dog on a chain.
Track Name: Set Me Free
Watch my body build a prison.
Watch my body build a cell.
Watch my mind destroy the key,
and lock me inside this hell.
Through a dark hole I watch,
a world that I cease to care about.
A world that turns without me.
A world that I've shut out.

Reaching for the future,
chained to the past,
I grasp at what I'll never have,
Life gets it's last laugh.
I make peace,
with never find peace,
and life rips me in half.

I've spent my whole life,
shackled to this earth,
living a lie.
I've spent my whole life,
shackled to myself,
waiting to die.

Can you set me free?
Can you break these chains?
