Track Name: Regret
I always gotta go back to the cold

I hear demons laughing at me as I sit inside of my cell
I hear my soul weeping as I sit in living hell

Withdrawal, a stray in a cage dreams of needles in his arm
A guilty sadomasochist, regrets from causing himself harm

He’s causing himself harm

Three demons, they dwell deep inside
Self destruction, suicide
As I painfully travel through the land the black angel holds my hand
Reality or fantasy, I just dont know
One thing is for sure, I gotta go

I always knew the righteous path yet I stumbled down the other
Filled with shame, the foolish clown turns coat on his own brother

Withdrawal, a stray in a cage dreams of needles in his arm
A guilty sadomasochist, regrets from causing himself harm

He’s causing himself harm

Three demons, they dwell deep inside
Self destruction, suicide
As I painfully travel through the land the black angel holds my hand
Reality or fantasy, I just dont know
One thing is for sure, I gotta go

Lyrics by Nathan Salsbery
Track Name: Caveman DNA
Somewhere between night and dawn you lie, gasping for your last breath
Broken ribs puncture your lungs, bleeding out your eyes

Your life to be just a few years in time
Beaten to a pulp by cops, and then just left to die
Schizophrenic trying to scrap by
Evolutionarily retarded, they served you to protect their tribe

Creeping and stalking, I’m tracking these clowns down now, baby
I’m watching your every move, I decide when they will lose
I break it and enter, I’m coming to your bedroom, baby
Once you see my eyes the panic sets in and there’s nothing that you can do

When injustice is justified to favor those who serve it,
We’re cavemen lost in the wrong time
But every paradox creates a gap
You can stand by and fear it, or with a melee take it back

One small blow from just one lonely man
Won’t make the Earth start shaking, but wake a force more grand
The idea that we can stand as one
The logically-sound minded are gonna rise and kill the scum
Just listen to me

Open your fucking eyes, what do you see?
Corruption’s running wild, just a little bit
Learning from our past, this shit builds up but bowels will pass
So grab a crooked cop, or maybe two
Shady dealer or skinhead crew, we gotta string em up
Downtown in plain view, they wake tied to a pole with no clue

Where they’ve been or how they came to be
Taken down by faceless ones, displayed for all to see
And as the public starts to crucify
Help is what you’re praying from this world that you’ve been hating
No one anywhere can truly see
The fate of our existence or mankind's destiny
But when you cause pain and suffering
It’s slowing down lifes progress, now you’re the enemy

In shadows we’re lurking, we’re manics, crusties, crazies, lazies
Your gangs are named and placed, we exist in every space
You have just been dosed, you’re gonna feel a tingle, baby
I hold your fragile mind, the terror sets in and there’s nothings that you can do

If territory’s all that’s on your mind,
Your DNA’s out-dated, get with the fucking times
Resources, they’re hardly scarce
Why fight when we can party, get drunk and lose our pants

But proven through the long test of time,
Some buzz-kill’s gotta ruin it, and spoil the good times
It’s not what you are or where you’ve been
It’s the actions you are making, that define what’s deep within
So reason with me

Open your fucking eyes, what do you see?
Corruption’s running wild, just a little bit
Learning from our past, this shit builds up but bowels will pass
So grab a crooked cop, or maybe two
Shady dealer or skinhead crew, we gotta string em up
Downtown in plain view, they wake tied to a pole with no clue
Outside we sit and view, into your home
There’s more than just a few, just a little bit
You better check yourself right now, we strike you without making a sound
That’s just what we do, strike silently
There’s more than just a few, just a little bit
Join us while you can, the turncoats will feel a vengeful hand

Strike silently, we’re gonna strike
Strike silently, we’re gonna strike, we’re gonna strike
Strike silently, we’re gonna strike
Strike silently

Lyrics by Alex Salsbery
Track Name: Strung on the Blue Line
As I walk around in my bare feet, dirty needles, glass and hot concrete
The infrastructure, spreading fast, the Earth is flustered
We’ve gone too far
Multi-celled but just one single drive, replicate and fight to stay alive
Stress response, clouded by our modern thoughts
Slowly growing insane
Step back, peak through the looking glass, third person watching mankind pass
Hypothesizing, we’re cancer, not a species thriving
You, me and my friends

Fry guy hunting birds that fly by
Swi guy strutting on the South Side
And my brother passed out, pockets slashed, strung out on the Blue Line

As we take a gaze, these Great Plains just aren’t what they used to be
Surrounded by maize, the soil degrades, subsidized by a government of thieves
When you're outside looking in, it’s plain to see
We don’t sustain, we sow it in vain, billions wasted on a few seeds

Grandma Mary conceived in Sicily, born off the boat, land of the free
Memories and cherished times are all a witness
The spreading of a planets contemplating sickness
This ain't no typical disease, this one can level age-old trees
Missile crisis, the nukes are out, there’s one behind us
It all evaporates

My my the junkie’s getting too high
Tie guy slaving in the high-rise
Just trash that fit, detox, come kick
Go tell your boss fuck you I quit
Not wise to listen to their white lies
Realize majority is not size
Rich fucking pricks are making me sick
Corrupt as all can be

Greedy pursuit, get all the loot, crush and burn another's dreams
Lay all to ruins, the flame consumes, now tell them who they should be
It’s hard to admit this condition’s in me
At least I know this is my foe, deep down inside I won’t let it be me

I won’t let it be me
To give away is the key
Free your mind and don’t miss a beat
Rolling meadows and seas
And mountain peaks
Even birds and the bees
Are all granted, all free
So quit limiting me
Just fucking let me be

Face oppression
Feed aggression
Decondition
Revolution
Fuck tradition
Break addiction
Deconstruction
Slay your nation

Lyrics by Alex Salsbery
Track Name: Walkin da Frog
Grab your buds and suds, my friends, we’re gonna get away
It’s one short leap to the rolling dunes, listen what I say
Once in a while, come will the day
On a log, froggy frog
Grab a bat and smash your clock
We’re gonna take that frog on a walk

I’m still on my feet
Who will I meet?
Grab that leash
Let’s hit the beach

As we walk along, I can feel it in my knees
In the sky, and in the trees, I’m getting kissed by the breeze
Leaping around, you’re holding his leash
Amongst the other creatures on this beach
With the purple and green and feeling so free
I think this frog is walkin me

Walkin the frog
Walkin the frog
Walkin the frog
(You better do what that motherfucker says)

I think they are staring, I think I am choking
Everything seems to be kaleidoscoping
This is a new world and I do know why
A big giant hand from out of the sky

But as we move along, there’s nothing wrong
Skyline on the waters edge
Chicago never looked so fine

Listen to this frog, he won’t do you wrong
Sometimes you gotta lose your mind
Just to get along

Can’t hardly speak
Leap into the creek
Grab that leash
Let’s hit the beach

Now I climb up sand, and I can’t believe my eyes
The vivid sky meets the lake
(Oh what a goddamn pair they make)
Leaping around, you’re holding his leash
Amongst the other creatures on this beach
With the purple and green and feeling so free
I think this frog is walkin me

Walkin the frog
