Track Name: Bed Of Nails (Feat. T.I. Frank)
I've been through hell and back
Now i'm back in hell
Still caged
No fucking soul left to sell
I'm letting my life
Roll off my finger tips
I won't fall under your guilt trip

What happened with what i had
Fuck the new life just take it back

It's not a fucking fork in the road
It's a bed of nails

I've been trying to get off my feet
We'll that's just so hard
When nothing's concrete

Walking through the depths
Of this life that is cursed
Walking on this dead road
Of this fucking dead Earth
Walking through nothing
But rubble and ash
This isn't the first time
It won't be the last

(T.I Frank)
*Let me out of this cage
This rage
I'm going insane
This blood in my body runs deep in my vein
I am a beast that cannot be contained
It's T.I Frank bitch remember the name
This pain i ease when i twist mary jane
This is Mortal Kombat and i am Liu Kang
Dressed in all black no batman or Bruce Wayne
I don't need your help and i don't need your guidance
This world is so fucked up with violence
And hate, disgrace
This fucking place
It drives me insane
Imma do me and I'll do it myself
Cause i am the best
There ain't no one else
That can stop me, top me, drop me, knock me down
Or take what i have
This is mine*

It's not the last
Save me
From This
Hell
Track Name: The Short Leash
You can't keep me on this leash
Track Name: Where It Hurts The Most
You talk about sorrow
You talk about pain
But what do you have to show for yourself
Show me your scars
Tell me your stories
Tell me about how you went threw hell

I hope it hits you where it hurts the most

Times are tough
But not as tough as you make it
Woe is me mother fucker
I've been watching you fake it
Fake it.
Track Name: Wholehearted
Wholeheartedly
You got the best of me
And i'm just scratching at my skin
Because i'm nothing
You cut me deep
Flipped me inside out
I mean nothing to you

Letting go has never been so easy
Cause i guess i'm just a piece of shit
Track Name: Hand Of Dusk
Pessimist i wont take your shit
It's time for you to take the bad in life
And swallow it
Find the light in life
Instead of fucking whine
Get out of here
I'll be just fine

I'll be just fine

Defeatist mindset
It's all that you know
Sift through the bullshit and
Feel free to go

Pessimist
I'll be just fine

Pessimist i wont take your shit
It's time for you to take the bad in life
And swallow it
Find the light in life
Instead of fucking whine
Get out of here
I'll be just fine
Track Name: Flip Side
It seems that everything's to good to be true
Does life
Truly get better
No matter what you say or do
We're all set up
For failure

I knew this would happen
So get me out of this hole
That i have been trapped in

You will never see this guilty grin
On my face

Don't let the door hit you on the way out
Spent too much time day in and day out
I've been chewed up
I've been spit out
I've been laughed at
Not any more

So don't catch me on the flip side
Track Name: Cold Shouldered
Buried in uncertainty
Drowned in criticism
Forever giving the world the cold shoulder
Cause i don't give a fuck what they have to say

Growing further and further
Apart from everyone

And caring less and less
I'm gonna have to
Say what i mean to get this shit off my chest
In a world that is free
Nothing is equal
With the world against me
I don't give a fuck

I don't give a fuck

You can't tell me how to live my life
You can't tell me to change

I'll be who i want
I wont be
A fucking fake
Track Name: Judgement
You people have something
To bitch about
Every fucking day
Think for yourself
And not other people's ways
Unrelenting will to prove your point
To make your mark
To prove your point

But let me tell you now that
You have nothing to prove
Ain't a dammed place in this world
That has room for you
Bigot
Got nothing to prove
Ain't a damn place in this world
That has room for you

No tolerance
For your ignorance
Hate for hate
Don't give a fuck about that shit
Track Name: Insult2Injury
Backstabbing traitor
Live up to your words
People dying in the streets
Voices going unheard
Chained down to these rules
How will we defend ourselves
Backstabbing traitor
Bringing this world to hell

Ball and chain
Set me free
Mind control
By misery
Eyes shielded cause we wouldn't want to see
That this is borderline tyranny

Arbitrary
Lies
No strength to defy
With the hand that feeds severed
How will we survive

Held down by the shackles of the world
This short leash got me choking to death
Restricted
From what i want to believe
Is freedom truly free?
Ball and chain
Set me free

Restricted
Track Name: Boneyard
Without the true you by my side
The bad in life
Has made me blind
There's nowhere to run and hide
Welcome to the boneyard

Welcome to the boneyard you mother fucker

Without you
By my side
No love, No good

Absent mind
For a beautiful life
I can't see
Searching for something
I'll never find

Without the true you by my side
The bad in life
Has made me blind
There's nowhere to run and hide
Welcome to the boneyard
