Track Name: Refuse/Walk
Walk the way you want to walk, ball your fist with hate
Talk the words you choose to speak
Rip the stitch they sewed in you

Rip the stitch they have sewed
Surrounded but so alone
Use the fear they have made
Don't stay calm, use your fear

Rip the stitch they have sewed
Rip the stitch

Surrounded but cold I stand hollow
Never felt nothing besides the cold
Never felt nothing besides hollow

Never let no motherfucker tell me when to move

Surrounded again I am so cold
Surrounded again I am so hollow
Track Name: Heavy Work
I dream that you're drowning
That love never finds you
That your skin and bones are ravaged by the wolves

Love can't find me
Just disease
This plague has found me
I can't breathe

I was never enough
This plague is heavy again
Working its way to my spine
You casted your stones so I'll bury your bones
Keep you out of my mind
I've locked myself for eternity but it's I who holds the key
You've had your grip for eternity but it's I who holds the key

Heavy work
Accept my twist of fate
Push the weight
Until my dying day

I was never enough
This plague is heavy again
Only the wicked deserve this
You casted your stones
So I'll bury your bones
As the weight crushes down on you

Reality is that I'll struggle forever
Until my days are through
Until I'm six feet under
Give me that peace
Please do that for me
Grant me no light
As the weight crushes down on me

Heavy work until my days are through

Heavy work til I'm through

With the work on my back
And the rest on my soul
I push the weight of reality
Until I'm six feet underground
Track Name: Tortured Soul
Self-made demons creating chaos
Deep in the trenches
With no hope, no strength to dig

I against I, a war against me
A tortured soul not meant to be free
Scratching at the scars the world has left
Life's a joke and everything's a test

Heavy work

'Cause behind every door lies another demon
And behind every demon lies a brick fucking wall

I'm just a toutued soul
I suffer all alone

Mouth sewn shut
Blood in my lungs
Still I suffer all alone

Suffer now, suffer later
War is now, peace is never

Peace is never
Track Name: Drop Back
Drop back, don't wanna hear it
Shut your mouth or swallow your teeth
Drop back, don't wanna hear it
The coward dies one thousand times

A coward's what you are
It's what you've always been
Hiding in the shadows
Shedding your skin
Walking a line that's nowhere near straight
One of these days man, you will hang

One of these days
You will hang

Drop back, don't wanna hear it
Shut your mouth or swallow your teeth
Drop back, don't wanna hear it
The coward dies one thousand times

The coward dies one thousand times

Deep in the shadows, a coward's revealed by the emprise of man

The skin has been shed, the torch has been lit to reveal your true face
