This is the sound of the end. It’s like a crushing destruction, smashing everything in sight and it’s coming for you, it’s gonna hold you, embrace you, squeeze you tight around the neck till you can’t breathe no more. This is the sound of the end. There will be no shelter, no hiding, you can pray to god for help but he’s not listening to you. It’ll be too late for redemption just accept the fate that we create, it’s all that we can do. This is the sound of the end.

I live for you, I’ll fight each day until god takes my soul away but if I fail, my family I’ll trade my life for an early grave. I won’t stop fighting until I’m dead and as you lay my soul away to remember these words every single day. I’ll trade my life for an early grave, death is coming fast there’s nothing you and me can do. it’s just a fact. but finally I found a reason to stay alive and I’ll do whatever it takes to protect what’s mine. I live for them I kill for them, I’ll die for them, if it comes down to it. don’t cry for me, I live for you. I’ll fight each day until god takes my soul away but if I fail, my family I’ll trade my life for an early grave. I won’t stop fighting until I’m dead and as you lay my soul away remember these words every single day. I’ll trade my life for an early grave let’s just wait and see this is the last will and testament of a madman pushed over the edge by bad man, so you understand my reasons give me an early grave...

Listen up, I don’t trust you, I don’t know why, maybe it’s your smile or something in your eyes, but who cares? I don’t know you at all so it really doesn’t matter anyway. I don’t care about the shit you telling me, it’s probably all bullshit and fantasy, and if it’s not it makes no difference to me cause it doesn’t really matter anyway. something ain’t right in the back of my mind, why are you so happy all the motherfuckin' time, shut up, just get up and leave, why are you talking to me, I don’t wanna know your problem they don’t matter to me, I don’t care, I don’t give a fuck about you, you don’t give a fuck about me, let’s stop wasting each other’s time, I don’t care, I don’t think your being real to me and I don’t care enough to find out so let’s part ways before it gets ugly. I don’t care

Here we go again! here’s another story bout a Friday night, it was cold February Ohio night, we were headed 80 west not a pig in sight. Trying to get Columbus by daylight. quick stop in Clearfield to pick up skams. Nick Giocka was there and the rest of the band. but Friday night never go as planned. it was the last great trip in the wisdom van. we left town on a Friday so we could reach cap city by Saturday. Now we’re thinking hard cause we really gotta find a way to get back to Stroudburg by Sunday. Pulled up to Joey Knuckles at 5 am Richie Krutch crashed out in the back of the van but when he started sleeping the city started creeping. Richie woke up to the sound of rubber screeching. My dog is a soldier so he jumped up. some dude was driving like he paid for the truck. Richie grabbed him by the throat and began to smash cause he’s the type of brother that will go out blasting. we left town on a Friday so we could reach cap city by Saturday now we’re thinking hard cause we really gotta find a way to get back to Stroudsburg by Sunday. Richie Krutch woke up in a fight today and the van got smashed on the highway. you don’t wanna test Richie on any day. but that’s enough of Columbus for one day. Don’t sleep when you’re in cap city. it’s bad luck cause they creep all day. don’t sleep when you’re in cap city, if you do they’ll make you pay. We left town on a Friday so we could reach cap city by Saturday now we’re thinking hard cause we really gotta find a way to get back to Stroudsburg by Sunday. Richie Krutch woke up in a fight today and the van got smashed on the highway. you don’t wanna test Richie on any day. but that’s enough of Columbus for one day.

One day I opened my eyes and I saw the world in a whole new light. There are barriers everywhere that go unseen. man made borders falling in between. lines that separate blacks and whites, browns, yellows and reds. We all should unite. the real line separate the rich and the poor and money is the root of every single war. let’s start a class war. it could be the last war we’ll kill all their laughter when we kill off the masters. we’ve been getting shit on since money was born and now I got kids, so it hurts me more. fuck your authority it doesn’t mean shit there’s no power like a working man fist. I swear I’ll always be true to the cause and steal my bread from a rich man paws. I’ll take what I want till I want no more and never give a fuck about rich man laws. let’s start a class war. it could be the last war we’ll kill all their laughter when we kill off the masters. have you had enough? cause I’ve had enough. let’s start the fire to burn Babylon. Go! it’s not fair but nothing ever is. so why’s the apple always on their side of the fence? take what you want from the greedy pig pockets and cut them back down to size.

Too many secrets I can’t hide nothing to believe in and I know why. buried in the deepest part of me. this is mine. this is mine. living on a quest for innocence, so many among us lost our way. feel back the layers and what do you find? this is mine. this is mine.

I don’t wanna live in a world where I can’t keep my children safe. sometimes Ii lie awake in the dark cause I can’t stop thinking about it. I’m surround by lunatics and racists always trying to test me. trying to test my patience, I know how hard this life can be. It can be lot harder that it’ was for me. what’s the point in trying? is there and point in trying if you really can’t change a thing? When I take a look at life I got the answer seems quite clear to me. I don’t wanna live if I can’t be with the people I love and the friends I’ve made. So let it be known if I die today y’all mean the world to me, if I die today did I say all the things I had to say? if I die today how will the world remember me? if I die today to all my friends and family if I die today please understand why I say that I don’t wanna live, not here. I’m not ashamed. this is who I am, my heart on my sleeve and blood on my hands. my youth is over and I had my fun. but now I gotta live for my little ones Until I’m gone I’ll do whatever I can. I swear it over and over and over again. fuck you if you don’t understand. too many of my homeys died for no reasons. those days are over and I miss my friends so I promised I would die to protect my fam....

Are we all living in a fog? Narrow, misses and close calls plague is all. Blurry perception powerless against the inevitable fall. How many times is the right choice wrong and your chance is gone It’s harder to stand tall than it is to crawl. Just a roll of the dice and your life is gone. it’s all gone. Everything you love dies and goes away. Everything you love is temporary. Everything you love dies and goes away. Everything you love, you lose it all someday. Love it while you can. Because one day it’ll all be gone.

We’re always working and working just trying to get paid. Do what you want you’ll never had it made. Time never stops and death won’t wait. It’s countdown to our ultimate fate. We’re killing time and it’s killing us too. When you die you see your money wasn’t real. Meanwhile you never did shit. Life was in you in face but you never saw it. Up above us the sky is falling, But the earth where we stands keeps growing And the second hand keep on going. Never stopping. never slowing. We’re always working and working just trying to get paid. Do what you want you’ll never had it made. Time never stops and death won’t wait. It’s countdown to our ultimate fate. You think it’s funny I play in this band, Never making no money, living mouth to hand. I’ve seen the world with my best friends While you were in an office slaving fo the man. Uh oh gotta get another day job Cause you can’t afford to keep your lights on. Final seconds before your life’s gone. What the fuck did you waste your life on? We’re always working and working just trying to get paid. We’re killing time everyday. It’s a countdown to the end of days.

I had a teacher back where I was in school. He talked down to the little joey like a fuckin' fool. He said: ”life ain’t fair. you're gonna find out quick. If you ever graduate you ain’t gonna be shit” It was hard to concentrate cause I have tourettes But I’m as smart as a motherfucker. don’t forget I said to him ”yeah you’re probably right. I guess you better start locking your shit at night” I was a nerdy little kid with a heart of gold. But this type of bullshit made my heart turn cold. I always had a hate for authority But now I’m over the edge. I wanna smash shit break shit. I was 11 and I wasn’t gonna take shit. Your life is over and your making me pay for it. That night his car got smashed with a brick. Unfortunate but he found out quick. Life isn’t fair. life isn’t fair. If it ain’t fair for me then it ain’t fair for you.

I know about secrecy. I’ve witnessed horrible crimes. I’ve seen shit that literally made me sick to my stomach But I can’t tell sometimes the truth is a curse. You marry a secret for better or worse. I’ve been privy to a few such things I’ll carry forever and ever with me. you should never tell some secrets cause it could surely mean your death just push them out and shut your fuckin' mouth until your final dying breath I know. don’t say a word I never told...

He was burn to a world of pain. left on a doorstep out in the rain. the first of 7 kids starving in the hood. he never met his dad and his mom was no good. The neighborhood swallowed up many soul. it’s hard growing old in a world so cold but the world keeps turning. The smart keep learning the strong survive and hit the ground running. WOAH, Another survivor from the bowels of the ghetto. I didn’t know he barely made it alive. that’s why he said “Son, we gotta get out of here, there’s no smile in the ghetto”. He only wanted to give my family a life. that’s my father. His mother married a child molester. Told me I was a son of a bitch. He brought an whole new level of fear. Drugs and rape and shit you don’t wanna know. So He grew up fighting everyday. A futile attempt to protect his family. My dad’s a rock and I know why. I never saw him break and I never saw him cry. WOAH, Another survivor from the bowels of the ghetto. I didn’t know he barely made it alive. that’s why he said “Son, we gotta get out of here, there’s no smile in the ghetto”. He only wanted to give my family a life. that’s my father. What more could I want to be than a man who would die for his family.

No justice for the working man. We works our fingers to the bones of our bleeding hands For the crumbs of the rich and privileged And they wonder why I’m filled with bitterness. I hate the system put in place to keep my people down. They’ll never understand the reasons why Hard times force crimes out of honest men. I’ve seen it again and again and again. We’ll never win And that’s how it ends. I’ll work my hardest till the day Ii die to provide for my family. If I get rich by a stroke of luck would you keep a close eye on me? And if I become what I hate the most. please shoot me in the fucking face. Cause in all my years I’ve learned one thing. There’s no justice for the working man No! Not for the working man There’s no justice for the working man We works our fingers to the bones of our bleeding hands I hate the system put in place to keep my people down. They’ll never understand the reasons why Hard times force crimes out of honest men. I’ve seen it again and again and again. We’ll never win And that’s how it ends. I’ll work my hardest till the day Ii die to provide for my family. If I get rich by a stroke of luck would you keep a close eye on me? And if I become what I hate the most. please shoot me in the fucking face. Cause in all my years I’ve learned one thing. There’s no justice for the working man No! Not for the working man There’s no justice for the working man And that’s how it ends.

Jesus don’t walk through the alleys. He must have forget how to find me. He used to hang around my family. but he never really understand me. God don’t come around no more. I don’t see a trace of him in this world. Poor men fighting in a rich man’s war. cause God don’t come around here no more. too many murder on tv. too many babies in poverty. religion ain’t shit but money. Priest in your pocket like a fuckin' thief. God don’t come around no more. I don’t see a trace of him in this world. Poor men fighting in a rich man’s war. cause god don’t come around here no more. The Devil comes walking softly. He always stands right behind me. I try to run away but he finds me. I wish that God would talk to me. God don’t come around no more. I don’t see a trace of him in this world. Poor men fighting in a rich man’s war. cause God don’t come around here no more.

There’s no stopping a violent assault.
