about

Welcome to my first album of all original music. My culmination of pure, unadulterated, raw feelings on life, hate, peace, and everything in between.
There's far too much corruption, greed, narrow mindedness, ignorance, (i could go on forever, etc. etc. ) going on in our country and world and here's 10 songs of how I've been perceiving it.
Anyway...enjoy my bullshit.
THANKS ALWAYS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!

Track Name: Another Fucking Wake Up Song
we got one planet, you better not fuck it up
i say, we got nowhere else to go
then again, do you think that's why
NASA and all those guys, constantly try to find new places we can call a home?

It seems we got nowhere else to go
ya we got nowhere else to go, as far as we know
we got nowhere else to go
ya we got nowhere else to go, as far as we know

you wave your flag, tell me i'm free
but we're all victims of your failures and cruelty
look at your progress. in truth, destruction
as you fill your wallet, all for number one

forget your money, forget your profit
in due time, you'll be burning it to stay alive

it's like everyday, i turn the TV on
watch the news and its a horror story every day
look at everything, you gave false hope
look at what you neglected, and exploited

fuck your projects, fuck your system
fuck your so called "task force" of mass production
we'll show you how, to live in the wild
on the streets, where you leave so many everyday

without your suits, without your money
without your cars, and your fancy italian shoes
without your concepts, without your genocide
without your fucking, your fucking IGNORANCE
Track Name: Half Assed Apology
"I'm sorry but" that's always how it stars
are our heads present here or are they miles apart
were our actions somehow just or is that just an opinion
can we suck this up, and try to talk with some feeling

This is my half assed apology
I'm sorry you hate me but I can't be sorry for all the shit that you gave me

ya you've been my friend through it all, that's why i give you tough love
and i don't want you to turn into someone that i despise, or criticize
I don't want you to become like all the rest of those pests
(cause fuck them)

ya i have days where i need to be alone and i have my days where i can't get off my fuckin high horse
as shitty as we both are, i guess i'll apologize so we can again go get drunk

This is my half assed apology
I'm sorry you hate me but I can't be sorry for all the shit that you gave me
Track Name: Catholic Boy
"so what'd you learn in school today son?" - "ha, well i'll tell ya…"

I learned you can be the worst person in the world
but still go to heaven if you go to a building
and pretend you're listening to some old guy
who talks in monotone and serves you alcohol

And apparently all religions have a similar basis
but no one notices the relation
and apparently God made other people suffer
just to prove a point to some rich snobby fucks

And i learned we're all made in God's equal image
and all men are created equal
except of course for the jews and the gays and women
and the muslims and middle easterners and anyone who doesn't believe in God or
doesn't have white skin or anyone with uncontrollable brain chemical imbalances or….hm.

well its hard to find God when your head's in a toilet
and its hard to go donate when thieves take your money
and the food really sucked so my shits weren't holy
i guess thats what i learned in school today, ya thats what i learned in school

Well i don't regret those 12 long years
they kinda taught me how i don't wanna be
i grew up and learned to think for myself
and how i don't have to listen to the bullshit you feed me
I still met some nice kids in those catholic schools
i mean except for the ghetto kids and dealers
and anyone who just went there cause they were forced to cause they're public school closed…

cause its hard to find jesus when you're passed out in dodgeball
and its hard to raise your hand when it's bruised by a ruler
and the nuns and priests can yell at you as long they're preaching
so thats what i learned in school today, ya thats what i learned in school
Track Name: Average Man
The average man. Going through life;
with the stream, just getting by, with his children and his wife

struggling for what he thinks is success and happiness.
Totally unaware of the power of inner peace.

Materials consume him. Money controls his life.
Buy! Buy! Buy! is what he clings to day and night.

He puts on his uniform, mass appeal of conformity.
Believing he is the right and just, Difference the enemy.

Violence and war are solutions, don't you see?
Anything safe is the norm, risks are too scary.

He doesn't need his feelings, he says, he doesn't care for much.
Chasing stereotypical things, afraid of what he'll touch

unsure of what will make him truly happy.
even with the love from his friends and family

And at the end of the day, he goes to the same old spot
uncomfortable, but familiar, thats where he'll seem to rot

Ingesting numerous substances that proclaim happiness
for reasons he can not explain, it feels like eternal bliss
But in reality, he is attempting to drown.

So look out for this man, don't you dare cross his path.
this pathetic, average man, this waste of skin and breath

be careful when he reaches his point of anxiety
he wants to change the world. but not, for you or me.
Track Name: 9 to FUCK IT!
Well if you don't wanna be a waiter
then stop fuckin being a waiter
no one ever said you had to trade your happiness for money anyway
And if you truly need that money so bad
I'm sure you could just sell your soul and go to that fancy office chair

and maybe you'll see me when I pass by now and then
as you smoke your cigarettes everyday
hiding behind your shirt and tie and your shiny little pins
but I'll know how you really feel inside

While the rest of us will be out living life
riding what doesn't work and what's not right
I'm sure you'll be happy in you 9 to 5
while we're out living life

You're the only one who could change your way of life
instead of claiming a false slave life
if you don't wanna go to college, fuck it, find another way
as long as you know who you are at the end of every single day
Track Name: Selfie THIS
Our attention spans have been dwindled down to zero
with few lines of text and stupid short videos
lack of interest, it's all entertainment now
no one cares about indulging in the how

Spending their time, distracting themselves
from what really matters, from what really matters
GO

And tell me why, are you wearing that make up
just to look pretty? who the fuck told you that you weren't pretty?

The media?

Models, fashionistas, so called standards, all to make you hate yourself
whoever dies with the most shit wins, whoever has the biggest following prospers

But little do you know, that you don't have to buy that crap they sell you, and you sure don't have to look like them

But little do you know, that you don't have to buy that crap they sell you, and you sure don't have to look like them
no you don't have to look like them

because you are you x3
cause you, you're not them

Cause they have no right to say who's "hot or not"
and they don't get to choose if she wants it or not
cause if they were as real as their saying
how could they seem so fake?
Track Name: Adjunct Soldier (another man's story)
And so I sit here, in my misery
Drunk on apathy and fear
Will I have the balls, to go out and fight
while all the others are here

And I know, it's unthinkable
And I know, you don't want me to leave home

I woke up this morning, with a knot in my stomach
and I realized what i'm about to do
If i wanna go to college, i sure as hell can't pay for it
i might as well risk my life too

So I packed up my bags and signed the application
and said my goodbyes and farewells
and i wondered if i would make one small difference
or not one different at all

Laying in the trenches with blood sweats and terror, with bullets flying over my head
i thought about my family and friend i left at home and how stupid my decisions have been

To do this for mere financial compensation, to get paid to go to college for what
to think i got on that bus and left my whole life to fight a war i don't believe in

And i know, its unthinkable
and i know, its not easy
and i know, it not easy
and i know, you just want me to come home
Track Name: Same Fucking Questions
Well I'm sick of asking all these questions in my lyrics like
"will i ever make a change?" or "can i do it on my own?"
or "what the fuck is wrong with you? do you see what the world has become?"
if you wanna be a change, why don't you get off your ass and do it
Just do it

Do I sound like a degenerate? full of shit? illiterate?
or do you realize that all these prospects and anthems aren't

Written for me, but they are written for you;
all of you who still don't get, too busy on you phones to
open your eyes, as well as open your ears
and try to make some sense of what the fuck is going on here

Well you can't expect the president
to fix all our problems, if we want a better country we
gotta pull together, and we gotta do our part
cause we know in our hearts that this world is our home

cause it's hard, it's hard, to live in a country
that doesn't back up what it preaches and supposedly believes

Well I'm sick of asking all these questions in my lyrics like
"will i ever make a change?" or "can i do it on my own?"
or "what the fuck is wrong with you? do you see what the world has become?"
if you wanna be a change, why don't you get off…your fuckin…ass and do it.
Track Name: Pride
She looked me in the eyes and asked me
is this what the world had come to?
is there any hope in ever, in ever turning back

i thought and said in reflection
ya, this is what the world has become
if you value you humanity, well you better take it back

Im begging you to speak up
if you see what i see in this man-forsaken world
Pride. who knew pride could lead to such ignorance
one-sidedness and arrogance
violence and corruption

Proclaim your magnificent and powerful
let your ego go, expanding and exploding
like their homes as your bombs raped their civilizations, oh

Don't worry though, you're not directly responsible
nobody told you otherwise, all you had to do was feed it
with your fear, hate, and your fucking pride

Speak up, if you see what i see in this world
Track Name: the War on War
Well I saw the news again
more senseless people doing senseless things
for their own selfish reasons
assuming that violence and rage are the answers
that one day will set them all free

Will they one day realize
the power of balance and peace
or will they keep destroying
in hopes of creating something

I experience a riot inside of me now
and I express it with the stroke of this pen
not with the harming of others who happen to live here
not with riot shields raised and not with guns aiming ahead

but with the freedom, i have
to express my disdain
for the things that we do as so called "human beings"

where's your regard for living things
to respond to a death with a death, now does that make any sense?
It would be so fucking easy
just to love if we just tried to try a little harder again

I experience a riot inside of me now
and I express it with the stroke of this pen
not with the harming of others who happen to live here
not with riot shields raised and not with guns aiming ahead

but with the freedom, i have
to express my disdain
for the things that we do as so called "human beings"
