Track Name: Hollow
The latest trends
The latest threads
Buy what they're selling you
No questions asked

Buy into this
False narrative
If this is how we live
Then I refuse to live

Hollow
Our lives ring hollow
Hollow

We consume earth
For all it's worth
Leave nothing behind
We're the worst of our kind

How hollow have we become
How far have our souls gone
We don't reach out to anyone
Our sense of self has to come undone
Track Name: All Hope Is Gone
All hope is gone
A life lost
All Hope is gone

Innocence
got replaced
with ashes
of their remains

Innocence
Ripped to shreds
No chance they would
live through this.

Mourn the
loss of
what could have been

Morn the
one choice
they had nothing.

Mourn the
loss of
what could have been

Mourn that
zero
fucks were given

Do those tears help you sleep at night?
Tomorrow you’ll go on with your own life.

What will change now? Nothing.

Save those tears
No one cares here
Save those tears
We see it clear

A life lost
All hope is gone.
Track Name: Repent
Those books you hold
At such reverence
Heavenly words
Souls thrown into the pits of hell

As fires consume
Villages burn down
Taunting us with fear
The message is loud and clear

Drown
You will drown
You must repent your ways

Repent your ways

I will question
Watch you cave in
Under the weight of your lies
Tear you apart
Watch the truth rise

Watch it rise
Track Name: What Have We Become
What have we become
Compassion's come undone
Hearts so filled with hate
Words we once would never tolerate

We watch this ugliness rise
Of the things we’ve despised
Not just on the streets
Within these walls of our scene

How did this come to be.

Infiltrate the masses with hate
The populace swallows in haste
Control the media and create
Further damage this divided state

Falling for their narrative
Problems caused by immigrants
Proven wrong by statistics
A country led by idiots

What are the values that we hold dear
Stand for compassion don't succumb to fear
Fuck your fears.
Track Name: Protect and Serve
Enshrined to protect and serve
Within your ranks a bunch of thugs
Caught red handed justice served
And now you want mercy from us - what the fuck?

What the fuck are you asking for?

Where was your mercy
That night in a dim lit corner
Where was your mercy
When you thugs were high on power

How does one retaliate
When there's a gun in your face
Pin you down in your weakest state
Every fiber of your being turns to hate

Where were the voices that should've stood up
Where were the voices in the face of misconduct

No mercy
No pity
You get nothing from me
