Track Name: The Sound of Words
The Sound of words

When I heard the sound of words
I was sure I could still survive
Being graced with surroundings of life
Left behind pursuit of inevitable death shoud'a looked accidental
Didn't expect this place to have such humanity to face
pain of reality
When I heard the sound of words
Finally I felt so damn human I will never loose this warmth of pain
Fuck living through my mind

The sound of words
Just to be or not to be...
warmth of pain
Now I'm reborn
At least for now I am nothing

You said I could'a died would'a died with nothing
I used be the same
America gave me a sigh and said
"You'll live you won't die with nothing"
I knew I got it and somehow always wanted that
And finally this place taught me what it is...
When I heard the sound of words
I was sure I could still survive
Here is the free country bitch

This feeling inside of me naturally selected
I embrace so strongly now this fixation of life
Been so long since I slit my wrist I wanna see the red breathing

This is the last chance the one and only
Sadness to rage, Peace to war, Love to hate, Coexistence to control, Affection to violent

Track Name: Love Song
Love Song

The disgraces of love
Envy, deceit, sex, lies, inspiration for inclusiveness
Time accelerates pain invariably
Why did we start fuckin hating each other
The effect of love
Been so wishful... your unhappiness
Been so wishful... my unhappiness
We will encounter each other again
This is how we make love fuckin human beings

You must love me again...

You will not be loved by someone else
because how I damage you will take your beauty away
Since you don't love me anymore I long to make you miserable


Don't you realize you fucking bitch
Track Name: Regardless of my Will
Regardless of my will

Children who learn inverse proportional solution turn numb and emotionless over much time
Solitude creates the shelter from too much knowledge
Children cut off their dismay in countless disappointments

Vague sight, words, relations associating me with these
No matter what I'll vanish easily from your minds regardless of my will...

Children grow up and realize
Nonsense of obedience, shallowness of love, shame of existence
Children's emotions aren't lifted up anymore
Their hearts are smothered and ruptured bound by awkward world
In days of resistance
I keep erasing inner pain with physical pain
Only murderous emotions and hateful things keep me alive


Everybody is the enemy
Don't trust their bullshit
The rule book is the enemy
Find yourself keep yourself
I give myself only one more chance
My decision, my means, my death
Fly free in to the next life

Track Name: Use Lies
Use Lies

What should I feel when I see pictures that vapid people draw with such insensitivity
What should I teach to people with general opinions
who thrive within their safety everybody goes down that road
I realize I just might look like you guys but we were never the same
I keep lying behind my fucking smile
Sometimes I loose myself using my surface and innerself to answer my own
Contradictory question

Use lies... Hide inside my mind
Step ahead of you
Hide this face of mine
Fuck you inside
Increase supporters criticize hurtfully don't believe anything anyone but yourself
Taking all the unguarded moments but you can't do any of that
You have no ambition just stay your fucking shitty life
Your life is like a playhouse
I'll make you my bitch
My dirty eyes which project hate allow me not to appreciate and love people

Then here comes the fame

What should I feel
What should I teach

Track Name: I'm The Fucking Jap
I'm the fucking jap

Hey Die do you know how much other japs fucking hate you?
Hey Die you yellow monkey natural born fake
Why am I tired of hating people who got the same skin?
Why am I tired of trying to follow hero's footprints?
How bad do I want respect?
You're all dirty pests

I'm yellow
The fucking jap
Like I give a shit

Don't bother me dead memories I'm not proud of what I've done
Can't you see in a mirror?
What's the difference between you and me? tell me
Go back to your country
It's over you can't take this
Yeah right keep telling bullshit
You guys will never get respect


Has anything I've done made me feel better?
I keep screaming the significance of being
Why am I tired of hating people who got the same skin?
"When opportunity knocks" they say
I say "I don't wait"
I look down on you like you never notice


Fuck...your kindness it is massproduced day you will realize this shit
Fuck...your kindness it is massproduced
Society... Don't fuck with me
I... I am the special yellow monkey
You... you know what the fuckin jap is?


Track Name: One Last Kiss
One last kiss

"I don't know..."
How many times will I say that?
"One day I will know but I won't be able to tell"
I'm just gonna feel it

My buddy called me and he goes
"I'm gonna kill myself"
"How long you been taking drugs?"
"20 years"
"Can you really kill someone that you don't know"
I hung up

Vicious cycles of silence atrophy me within
Feeding myself words to escape words encountering circles of pain
We use the same steps to make sense of these endless circles
I'm tired of this shit

My buddy called me and he goes
"I'm gonna kill myself"
"My thoughts spinning out of control that fucks me up"
"I can't begin to deal with this shit anymore"
with loaded bullets he said

"Despite what spirits wear they won't reveal themselves
Even though you find the words through trial and error
You can't describe the beauty of a moment"

Death is waiting...Emancipation of vicious circles
Six feet under... Nothing can follow me
If I don't wake... These damaged emotions disappear
If I don't wake... My tears will dry up

My buddy called me and he goes
"Thanks I gotta go"
Fabricated these calls in his mind for 20 years
One last kiss with the needle darling heroine
"A failure I always will be"
He shot himself
