01. Proven

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
You want to see me fail
You won't get your chance
You want to see me fail
You won't get your chance
You'll never get your chance

This is our lives
This is who we are
You can't put a price on it
It's strength within our hearts

From within our souls
Stood strong throughout the years
This runs through our veins
We stay true to ourselves

(You want to see me fail...)

Who are you to judge us
Who are you to condemn us
I have respect, honour and dedication
For my family and friends

From within our souls
Stood strong throughout the years
This runs through our veins
We stay true to ourselves

(You want to see me fail...)
This is thicker than blood
Its all we have

Proven!!!


02. Perseverance

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
I know your fear of loss
And your struggles with faith
And how it takes everything that you have to face the day
The virtues you possess now bring you eternal pain
All you have is contempt for a life you can't obtain
All your heroes have failed you
Yet you try and prevail
Face your torment and dismantle your doubt
Refuse this legacy of shame and deceit
Cause the only real truth in your life that you know is hostility

Your world is coming apart
Remain steadfast

Perseverance
Against all opposition
Crushing all limitations
Pure strength through solitude
Discipline and determination

You can't accept what you've been told
Anchored in sin you must reverse your descent
Declare the weight of the world has yet to claim you
And admit that your faults will not restrain you
Glimpses of fate bring light to your despair
Realise hope isn't short of your grasp
Resurrect every dream that you've buried alive
And never succumb to the war that you fight in your heart

Your world is coming apart
Remain steadfast

Perseverance
Against all opposition
Crushing all limitations
Pure strength through solitude
Discipline and determination.


03. You're Never Alone

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
This is for the kids who have no where to turn
Who have nothing to live for
You think you haven't the will to persist
You have to search within yourself

All the work that you've done in vain
Been overlooked and taken for granted
Only you can end your suffering
You must be honest with yourself
You have nothing left to lose
You feel that everyone's out to get you
Been beaten down but the hate still breathes
Confined by consequences, it's your soul you must release

It's our struggles that define us
And the hardships we endure
Your spirit can't be broken now
You've come too far

All your life
You told yourself you were never alone
All your time
Spent on the problems that have no solution
In your mind
Giving up was never an option
Out of spite
Hold onto the hate that has helped you stay focused

You are one but you're never alone
You can't atone for every promise you've broken
In this moment there's no way you will fail
You must be honest with yourself
Use your pain to achieve your goals
Make amends while you can and stay focused
You can't be burdened by your lack of control
Never stray from the path you have chosen

(It's our struggles...)

(All your life...)

(This is for the kids...)

This spirit can't be broken [x3]
It's who you are

(It's our struggles...)

Forever
Forever
Forever convicted [x2]


04. I Will Be Heard

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Now is the time for me to rise to my feet
Wipe your spit from my face
Wipe these tears from my eyes

Now is the time for me to rise to my feet
Wipe your spit from my face
Wipe these tears from my eyes

I've got to take my life back
One chance to make it right
I've gotta have my voice be heard
And bring meaning to this life

Cause I've trusted for nothing
I've been led astray
I've been tried and tested
But I won't accept defeat
Now I've done things I regret
And its time to reverse the rules
I just want to make good on
All the promises that I have made

I will be
I will be...I will be heard
I will be...I will be heard

Now is the time for me to rise to my feet (I will be heard)
Wipe your spit from my face
Wipe these tears from my eyes (I will be heard)

Through the worst we prevail
So our voices will be heard
Through the worst we prevail
So our voices will be heard
Through the worst we prevail
So our voices will be heard
Through the worst we prevail
So our voices will be

Now is the time for me to rise to my feet
Wipe your spit from my face
Wipe these tears from my eyes

Now is the time for me to rise to my feet
Wipe your spit from my face
Wipe these tears from my eyes

I've got to take my life back
One chance to make it right
I've gotta have my voice be heard
And bring meaning to this life

Cause I've trusted for nothing
I've been led astray
I've been tried and tested
But I won't accept defeat
Now I've done things I regret
And its time to reverse the rules
I just want to make good on
All the promises that I have made

I will be
I will be...I will be heard
I will be...I will be heard

Now is the time for me to rise to my feet (I will be heard)
Wipe your spit from my face
Wipe these tears from my eyes (I will be heard)

I will be!!!


05. A Call For Blood

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Your reign of terror is coming to an end
And all your victims' pain will be avenged
Taker of innocence, I want your demise
Tear you apart for the unspeakable things you tried to hide

I fucking hate you
Every bone in my body will ache
'Till I destroy everything you love
And fill your life with their pain

Ten long fucking years
I waited to erase all the memories
And you can't fucking stop me
My vengeance is finally born
Ten long fucking years
Your reign of terror is coming to an end
And I have no mercy for your soul
Your blood is on my hands

A call for blood
For what you've done
No tolerance (for what you've done)
A call for blood
For what you've done
No tolerance (for what you've done)

All their anguish, all their pain
All their nightmare, all their misery
It's all coming back to haunt you
Your time is up and you've no where to hide

(I fucking hate you...)

(Ten long fucking years...)

(A call for blood...)
No fucking tolerance.

Let the blood spill
Vengeance is born [x2]

A call for blood.


06. Below The Bottom

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Half dead, you trod through life
So dependent, a shell of a man
Pitiful, you let your vices tell your fate
Follower of the blind, you have nothing.
My empathy has turned to rage.
My pity has turned to hatred.
In selfishness you've sunken to the depths.
How much lower can you go?

All virtue decayed, now a memory
So many friendships lost.
Only enemies.
Shame I feel for you, pain I feel for you.
To cleanse yourself you've got to let go.
Are you not alone now?
Are you not what you've become?
I want to give you the strength to overcome.
The strength to reject those who brought you down.
Take a look, take a look at yourself.
What do you see? What have you become?
You've gone below the bottom.
Take a look, take a look at yourself.
What do you see? What have you become?
You've gone below the bottom.

You've taken their lies as your own.
Tried to justify your own hypocrisy.
You bear the mark of consequence.
You've lied to yourself, you've lied to me.
You've betrayed your own soul.
Sacrificed all you were.
In selfishness you've sunken to the depths.
How much lower can you go.

(All virtue decayed...)
I want to give you the strength to overcome.
The strength to reject those who have brought you down.

Take a look, take a look at yourself.
What do you see what have you become?
Take a look, take a look at yourself.
You've gone below the bottom.


07. We Still Fight

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Talk of the causes you support
Voice your misdirected views
You only comment on the things you don't have the power to change
Do you even think before you speak
Do you know what it is you condone?
Take a look at the world today
You've taken your freedom and safety for granted

How do you justify (you have no right)
The way you disgrace those who gave their lives
And how do you justify (you have no right)
The way you disrespect those whose loved ones died.

Everyday is a different crusade
You revolt from the safety of your fantasies
Privileged, you've never fought for a thing
You'd be the first to go if there was real anarchy
All your jargon makes me sick
You're the farthest thing from an activist
You've lost sight of what's important and real
You've taken your freedom and safety for granted

(How do you justify...)

Kill!

This is dedicated to all those who gave their lives to uphold their beliefs
Not to those who try to demean their sacrifices
You have no right.

For those who fought our rights and for those who gave their lives.
And for the families whose love ones died.
It's their honor for which we still fight.


08. Unloved

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
When it all ended
There was no where to turn
I hid inside myself hoping someone would find me
That day never came
As the years passed the pain lessened
I thought your voice would silence forever
I was wrong

This time there's no turning back
Emerge from a doorway at the end of a war inside my soul
There's no picking up where we left off
And there will not be a future
I've died so many times inside
I've accepted this pain
And I won't look back now
I never will

You don't know
You don't care
You never have and you never will

[Repeat: Chorus]

You made me realize
Everything I've ever known of love was pain
And the person you once were
Has died and rotted away
I've lived with this knife in my heart
As a reminder of what I can't be
I know all I do is hate you
There is nothing you can say or do

You were never part of my life
And you never will be

Unloved!


09. Bloodsoaked Memories

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Those wounds have been revealed
Clawing through this wasteland
No emotion lives, suffocate on hope
Swallow your last rational thought
It tastes of every heart you've devoured
Your veins constrict, they are choking you
Wrapped in vanity, you're dying.
Unveiled by searing hatred
You gasp for life, you can't hold me now
I've let you go, bleed into obscurity
Clawing through this wasteland
No emotion lives, suffocate on hope
Swallow your last rational thought.
It tastes of every heart you've devoured
Your veins constrict
They are choking you
Wrapped in vanity, you're dying!


10. Hollow Ground

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
From nothing we have risen and from nothing we still rise!

Take your life back
Fight, fight
Will you fight to take your life back?

Ask yourself what's truly yours in life
Are you in control or someone's slave?
All that you cherish, all that you love
In the blink of an eye can be taken from you
In moments of tragedy we bond
And in weakness clarity thrives
I've been blessed with the inspiration
To take what little I have and always strive

Sometimes surviving is all that you can do
I never claimed to have all the answers of the solutions
My satisfaction is knowing that my desires will not be killed
With a readiness to defend what is mine and never compromise

The foundation of our lives
Built on hollow ground
We must unlearn the prejudice
We must unlearn the lies

I've seen the calloused
I know the jaded
I've been disheartened, I've lost control
But I never crumbled in the face of adversity
And I always force myself to believe

(The foundation of our lives...)
Built on hollow ground
We must unlearn the prejudice
We must unlearn the lies

Are you willing to fight?
Are you willing?

(Take your life back...)
Fight, fight
Will you fight to take your life back?


11. Final Prayer

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Destruction - in its purest form
No limit to the vicious damage done
Corruption - injustice with no remorse
Heinous disregard, our future's uncertain

But as life comes from the earth
It must return to the ash
Cleanse ourselves of those vile traits
And crawl back from annihilation
Worthless
We shatter lives
Ruthless
We decimate the earth

Final prayer
Final Prayer for the human race, we know our time is running out
Millions of people will suffer and die; by the hands of those in power
Final prayer
Final prayer for the human race
You must bow to your knees and repent for the human race

Awakened
To the blood stained face
For a world that can not be changed
Forever reminded
Of a nightmare that is every passing day

Worthless we shatter lives
Ruthless
We decimate the earth

(Final prayer...)


12. Smash Your Enemies

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
I hope I'm alive
To witness your demise
Make you feel my sorrow
Encompass all my pain
That I've felt for years
Dreading each dying day
Hanging by a thread
On the edge of my sanity

When I wake up the real nightmare begins

Will I make through my time in living hell?
Do I possess the strength to smash my fears into the ground?
I've tried to be strong
I've tried to overcome but I don't think I possess the strength to carry on
I'm torn between, and there's no right choice
I've gotta fight back
I won't be scarred for life.

Bring it up!


13. Healing To Suffer Again

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
I won't be chained to the earth
I feel cheated, so I cheat myself
I feel defeated, so I defeat myself
Drown my sorrows again and again
Push away and deny this misery
These feelings and instincts remain
I'm struggling to pull myself from my grave.

Let me be the one with the infinite
Let me be one
Let me be the one with the infinite
I won't be chained to the earth
I won't be chained to the earth

(I feel cheated...)

(Let me be one with the infinite...)

I just need the will
To suppress the urge
I can't suppress the urge
I've build so many barriers
I'm healing to suffer again
Time has given me no remorse
Spiritually bankrupt
Just give me the grace to oppose this sin
Haunted by the things I've done
Is this guilt and shame the price I pay
I hate myself for this weakness
I won't be chained to the earth.

[Rpt:] I won't be chained to the earth.


14. Judgement Strikes

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Worthless, is what you made your life
Failure, is what you set yourself up for
You don't have the power
To realise your dreams
Now you want to take from me
Jealousy seethes through your callous words
So content you're visionless
Void of emotion
I pray for someone to release me from your grasp

It's evident, your guilt
It's evident, that this judgement strikes down on you

Unbreakable - and you're guilty
Unbreakable - I'm not going down without a fight

You try to break my world
You breached our trust to destroy me with lies
Now you've fallen you're nothing again
Live my hatred, its you I despise
Live my hate.


15. Remain Nameless

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
If there's one thing in this world that I must do
It will be, to prove you wrong

Make you take back the lies
And bring the truth to the surface
Clean my slate and erase
All the black you've
Tarnished my name with
This is conviction
Of what I have inside you will never possess
And because you never understood how I lived
You try to disrespect
Well I've paid my fucking dues
And everything I have
I've made from nothing
I've done this all on my own
That's more than you can say for yourself

You disrespect the way I live
You take apart what I say
You try to judge me
Now I'm judging you
You disrespect the way I live
You take apart what I say
You try to judge me
Now I'm judging you
This time I'm judging you

The harder you try and break me
The harder I push on

If there's one thing in this world that I must do
It will be, prove you wrong

You never believed in this
And you never would admit your fault
You've always had everything handed to you
But the wealth has finally run out
I knew from the beginning
You had no heart or soul
I've always seen through your lies
And I'll always hate you for what you are

You disrespect the way I live
You take apart what I say
You try to judge me
Now I'm judging you

You disrespect the way I live
You take apart what I say
You try to judge me
Now I'm judging you. [x2]
This time I'm Judging you.

The harder, you try to break me
The harder, I push on.
