Track Name: Birthright
Just another bigot in a black robe
Scum of the earth, lower than low
Dehumanizing denial of life
Petty power trip refusal of rights

Tear down the monuments

Stolen flesh and continents

Tear down the monuments
founding fathers were frauds
stolen flesh and continents
preaching progress as cause

this lands not my land
this lands not your land
we are the children of a fucking institution
fist born from hopeful hand
hourglass emptied of sand
we are the children of a fucking institution
Track Name: They
They want you to believe
they want you to believe
they want you to believe
they want you on your knees

obey
(they)
Track Name: Scent of Blood
how far we've come
luck of nature bestowed
harvesting the poison fruit
of seeds that we've sewn
proud of all that we've built?
what about what we know?
This is the world where our children must grow

we did not ask to be wolves
but all the wishing in the world wont change
we did not ask to be wolves
hardened hearts and the scent of blood

the scent of blood
a testament to gifts misspent
the evolution of us
Track Name: Hood
Born as a wage slave
fucked from birth
subsidized cages
thrones made of dirt
destined to falter doomed to fail
another check, another crutch, another coffin nail

keep fucking keep drinking stop thinking
keep fucking keep drinking stop thinking

you are your enemy
Track Name: Success Built on Self Hate
pick and choose
line by line
context abused
time after time

a million problems
our fathers fathers caused them
a million problems
we got no one to fucking solve them

excuses fly and apologies rain
success built on self hate, fear, and suffering
excuses fly and apologies reign
success built on self hate, fear, and suffering

you're not a saint, savior, martyr, or prophet
so eat your words and pray in your closet
the tide is turning, you can't hope to stop it
your stain will be washed away and forgotten.
