Track Name: Can't Exist
White pills to numb my mind, as my world starts to fade
another wasted breath; once ever close to death
i look up to the sky- I know my time has come
I know I won't survive to see the morning sun

DEAD TO ME
CAN'T EXIST
Track Name: Violent Thoughts
Anger, hate, destruction, disease
political types ignoring your needs
you've got to be naive to be happy
you've got to be naive to think yr free

i want to scream, i'd rather kill
violent thoughts make me ill
i want to scream, i'd rather die
violent thoughts of suicide
Track Name: Warning
(I don't know the first verse, Elliot used to sing replacements lyrics live.)

warning -
sound the alarm

dead bodies on the ground, blood runs in the streets
no sign of a future, all hope is growing weak
our time is running out- the enemy is near
should we stand and fight or should we run in fear?
Track Name: Scream Tonight
No real news on the TV
that don't matter, not to me
there's more to worry about than complacency
there's more to worry about than what you see

you'll scream tonight

couple drinks down and feeling alright
all you see is red, you're ready to fight
maybe it's instinctual, maybe it's bred
keep this up you'll wind up dead

you'll scream tonight
Track Name: Untitled
ELLIOT HARDCORE
You're not different you're the same you think this is a fucking game this is no joke this is our life so go get fucked your head's not right
Track Name: Total Devastation
Destruction is everywhere, falling apart at the seams
everywhere is terror no relief from this siege
we're failing, failing, at achieving peace
the only response is atomic release

total devastation
from nature or from man

Building war machines to devastate the land
destroying anything outside of their plan
why does it have to be this way?
no one could answer, no one could say.

total devastation
from nature or from man
Track Name: Insanity
I just want to get away, the medication in my brain
slowing and clouding my mind
they think that I'm crazy, they just don't see what I see
they don't understand because they're free

they are free

not your call, don't know it all
I make my own choices
the meds they put inside of me can't stop all the voices
pain inside drives me insane, i want to be free

men in white keep me confined to my insanity

driving forces in my soul, men in white won't let me go
laugh at me as they make me bleed
they test my body and my mind, i don't know what they try to find
but I hope that they don't succeed

insanity

not your call, don't know it all
I make my own choices
the meds they put inside of me can't stop all the voices
pain inside drives me insane, i want to be free

men in white keep me confined to my insanity
