Plagued 01:37
A second wind under a blazing sun Come together just to come undone Birdseye view with the few Who bare it all For nothing and everything There’s no aim. Standing in place. No rights. No voice. So ashamed. Still not convinced I can’t just sit back here and wither away. Who do you live for? What do you stand for? Why do you live? Take of the fucking suite. It doesn’t even fit.

Gun Nation 01:40
Dividing water Like so called holy Losing sleep for conjectured arguments Desensitized to all this mess Blinded by the right to.... Blinded by constructs of bravery What is it worth? How many lives is it worth? How much blood do we forfeit? Blinded by your constructs of and bravery and right to bear. Dear weak and weary, What’s it gonna take? You stay cold and calloused What is it worth? You stay cold and calloused Where does guilt rest it’s head? Here in gun nation Normalized Left astray Better you than I Nation in decay Just another day
