01. Tear It Down

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
How much more can you possibly take?
How many battles can you lose in one day?
Who is the source of all your pain
And how do you ever plan to be unrestrained?
How much longer? How much more?
Until you gain some self respect.
For once, just stand the fuck up and fight!
Confront and shatter everything that stands in your way.

Every burden every source of strife.
Tear It Down
Every cage every fucking vice.
Tear It Down
Distorted notions of who you are.
Tear It Down
Imposed values and beliefs.
Tear It Down
Tear It Down now!!!


02. Straight To Your Face

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Straight to your face with the truth
The longer it takes for you to achieve
The faster they want to see you break
It's in their nature to try to destroy
What they know they could not help create
I've seen it for years and I know first hand
Who is genuine and who is fake
The rest of the leeches will come and go
Good riddance, we hated you anyway.

Straight to your face with the truth!
Sometimes it gets hard
When the road to the future take you back
To a better day, you wonder and ask yourself
Where the time went and why some people
Had lost their faith
Through some memories and the friendships we had over
Time have begun to fade
We're still right here and we're stronger than ever
What we've done can never be taken away.


03. Facing What Consumes You

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Facing what consumes you is the only way to be free.
Released from those poisonous fears.
Resurrected once and for all.
You want me to hold my tongue
Then why the fuck am I here?
You want me to bottle my rage
Cause you never had the heart to say what I say.
My life, my body, my pride.
You have no opinion, no right.
I've built myself nothing like you.
My refusal is my way of life.
Doubt me, Hate me
You're the inspiration I need
My life, my body, my pride
You have no say
My life, my body, my pride
You don't have say.

Facing what consumes you is the only way to be free.
Though I'm still far from perfection.
I stay relevant, I'm still vigilante.
I have so much more to say.
I have so much more to fight for.
I've used your lack of inspiration.
As my awakening, its my ability to live forever
By my own command.
To be vehement, remain confident.
Doubt me, Hate me
You're the inspiration I need
You're all the inspiration I need.
Your doubt, it fuels me.
Your hate, it drives me.
The challenge ignites me.
You make me fight harder.


04. Live For This

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Let's go!
Live for this, Live, Live
Live for this
Live for this, Live, Live
If you don't live for something, You'll die for nothing.
Through the best and the worst
The struggle and sacrifice.
For the true who've remained and the new blood.
Motivation, undying allegiance
Striving through the hardships and affliction.
Every drop of blood
Every bitter tear
Every bead of sweat

I live for this
Live for this, Live, Live
Live for this
Live for this, Live, Live
If you don't live for something you'll die for nothing.
What we have are not possessions we own
It's not weighed by greed or personal gain
This is real a desire for freedom.
A place apart from a world in abandon.
Every drop of blood
Every bitter tear
Every bead of sweat

I live for this
Live for this, Live, Live
If you don't live for something you'll die for nothing.
I live for this.
Every drop of blood
Every bitter tear
Every bead of sweat
I live for this!


05. Doomsayer

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Your doom awaits you!!
Selfish ones who think this world revolves for them
Around their games and illusions.
They give nothing but their hands are always out to take.
I wish you misery now, desolation.

Cast down, defeated, never to rise.
Cast down, defeated, never to rise again
Wallow in your hypocrisy.
You want respect but you'll never earn it.
Condemned to your heresy.
You want respect but you'll never earn it.
Your life is a fantasy.
You want respect but you'll never earn it.
Now you live out your blasphemy
You want respect but you haven't done a thing to earn it.
I'll be your Doomsayer, motherfucker.
Your doom awaits you

Cast down, defeated, never to rise.
Cast down, defeated, never to rise again
Wallow in your hypocrisy.
You want respect but you'll never earn it.
Condemned to your heresy.
You want respect but you'll never earn it.
Your life is a fantasy.
You want respect but you'll never earn it.
Now you live out your blasphemy
You want respect but you haven't done shit to earn it.
Your doom awaits you.


06. Another Day, Another Vendetta

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
The question they keep asking me.
How can one so young be so bitter and angry
Well the answer is plain to see
Just look around at this world that we're living in.
It's die or let die
Take or be taken from
And there's nowhere to run
Who do we look to
What have we done
These times have taken the best from us.

All I see is killing
Another day, another vendetta
There is so much suffering
Another day, another vendetta

I see the homeless standing out on the streets
On every corner, they're asking for money
I try to help them whenever I can but sometimes
I can't afford to help myself.
I see diseases and modern plagues of our time
The greed of our leaders have made them blind
To our problems, they spend millions over seas
While people right here are fighting wars everyday

All I see is killing
Another day, another vendetta
There is so much suffering
Another day, another vendetta

All you can do is stay close to what is true to you.
Stay close to what is true to you.
All you can do is stay close to what is true to you
Stay close to what is true to you.
Never let go of what you strive for.
Hold tight, never let go
Never let go of what you strive for.
Never think you can't make a change.

All I see is killing
Another day, another vendetta
There is so much suffering
Another day, another vendetta.


07. A Lesson Lived Is A Lesson Learned

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Do it!
Some scars are meant to be worn with pride.
Everyday is knowledge to use in life.
A lesson lived is a lesson learned.
Setbacks used to propel me forward
Misjudgment taken as force to do right,
A better outlook a mindset of power.
Each day resolve and reform.

A lesson lived is a lesson learned
You've got to fend for yourself
A lesson lived is a lesson learned
Everyday is a lesson.

Said so many things that I wish I could retract
I've got my issues, I've got my demons
Finished what I began and finally saw.
It's how you use the knowledge you've been given.
Stood tall when others would have turned and run.
Put my work in when everyone quit.
Claw and tear for everything I have.
And I've only just began

A lesson lived is a lesson learned
You've got to fend for yourself
A lesson lived is a lesson learned
Everyday is a lesson.


08. Beholder Of Justice

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
In this very moment, agony exists
Unbeknownst to an unforgiving force.
Some pray, some beg, without consolation.
The pure lie beneath us while the scum walk the earth

Why can't we heal them?
Why can't we see them?
Can we keep hoping?
No one knows for sure

Blamelessly renouncing, guilt has no bearing
I must believe that there is a better way.
Beholder of justice
Who have you abandoned
Beholder of justice

Why have you forgotten us?
Why, why have you forgotten us?
Why, why must the innocent die?

If I could reverse this I swear I would
I would take the pain away, I swear to you.
Broken souls and misery it seems we're too far gone
Now we can only ask and wish for our complete redemption
Beholder of justice
Who have you abandoned?
Beholder of justice

Why have you forgotten us?
Why, does such innocence suffer?
While the evil prospers?
Why, beholder of justice?
Why, have you forgotten us?
How can I stand by your judgment?


09. This Is Now

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Another memory and I'm asking myself
How can I let the past be the past.
Once and for all take a hold of the future
And not let it control what I aspire to have.
I see where my decisions have brought me
What's done is done and it's time to start again
Can't let it tear me in two waste me away
I gotta believe
Cause this is now
How can I change tomorrow if I can't change today?!

This is now
If I control myself I control my destiny.
What I've seen and what I've been through has made me who I am
There was a time in my life where I had no desire to carry on
I couldn't see a place for me or a will to survive
I never thought to rely on myself or the beliefs that I have denied
But this is now
How can I can change tomorrow if I can't change today?!

This is now
If I control myself I control my destiny
If I control myself I control my tomorrow
I got to change today
Cause this is now
How can I change tomorrow if I can't change today?!
I must control myself if I 'm to control my destiny.
Cause this is now.
Cause this is now
How can I change tomorrow if I can't change today?!

This is now
If I control myself I control my destiny!


10. Voice Of Contention

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
If they said they knew the truth
They lied.
No one said my faith wouldn't be questioned.
Been driven to the brink.
Because the truth is too hard to accept
When you face your mortal enemy.

Who ever said, I needed you, lied
Who ever said, you knew the truth, lied.
Who ever thought they knew my faith, lied
And if they think they know now, they fucking lie.
They lie.
Where are all your answers now.
That you've been called out.
I kneel down and mourn for what we had.
I can't be there for you now.
Hear my voice of contention.
It's sad you made me this way.
Hear my voice of contention.
It's so hard to see this end.

Who ever said, I needed you, lied
Who ever said, you knew the truth, lied.
Who ever thought they knew my faith, lied
And if they think they know now, they fucking lie.
You think you know the truth
You lie.
Where are all your answers now.
That you've been called out.
I kneel down and mourn for what we had.
I can't be there for you now.


11. Choose Or Be Chosen

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
The time has come to deny your ways.
To rid ourselves of the parasites.
Shedding dead weight, reclaiming what's ours.
Taking each moment with force again.
No crosses to bear, no time to be wasted.
A fearless approach to oppression.
A constant attack to never retreat from.
With no other choice but resistance,

What will it take
You must choose or be chosen for.
What will it take
Choose or chosen

Its all that we ask, for what we demand.
The decisions we make we will live by.
Proving your weakness.
Denouncing your claims
Your feeble attempts to demean us.
What more can you do, you're against the wall.
Your lies will be heard for the last time.
Say what you will it's only in vein.
This is the justice I fought to attain.

What will it take
You must choose or be chosen for.
What will it take
Choose or chosen
What will it take
You must choose or be chosen for.
What will it take
Choose or chosen
What will it take
Choose, choose
What will it take
Choose, choose
Choose or be chosen!


12. Confide In No One

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Give me something real
Give me back those years
Give me peace of mind
Give me something more

Strength, to deny you
Trust, in my instincts
Breathe, when I'm drowning
Life, when I'm lying dead
Hearts, mend with pieces
Dreams have been shattered
Love crucified, forgiveness denied
Strength, to deny you
Trust, in my instincts
Breathe, when I'm drowning
Life, when I'm lying dead
Hearts, mend with pieces
Dreams have been shattered
Love crucified, forgiveness denied

Give me something real
Give me back those years
Give me peace of mind
Give me something more

I confide in no one.
Strength, to deny you
Trust, in my instincts
Breathe, when I'm drowning
Life, when I'm lying dead
Hearts, mend with pieces
Dreams have been shattered
Love crucified, forgiveness denied
The betrayal, so hard for the victim to fathom.
Burn every word, every page, every letter.

Confide in no one
Confide in nothing.
No one, no one
Confide in no one.
No one.

Give me something real
Give me back those years
Give me peace of mind
Give me something more.


13. Bound To Violence

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Bound to violence
Gagged by pain
Drowned in self-regret
This grief is the sentence you face

Incomplete, you've lost your way
Struggling with rationale
In a world so cold and bleak
How could this be a place for you?

Bound to violence
Gagged by pain
Drowned in self-regret
This grief is the sentence you face

You're bound to violence
Bound, bound, bound to violence
Gagged, gagged, gagged by pain
Drowned, drowned in self-regret
And this grief
Bound to violence

Violence begets violence
Pain begets pain
Haunted by a dying hope
Subconsciously needing the agony

When will you face this?
Why do you run?
How will you ever heal
If you've lost the ability to feel?

Bound to violence
Gagged by pain
Drowned in self-regret
This grief is the sentence you face

You're bound to violence
Bound, bound, bound to violence
Gagged, gagged, gagged by pain
Drowned, drowned in self-regret
And this grief!
