Track Name: Injustice Reigns
INJUSTICE REIGNS
Injustice reigns, in this sick sad place
No punishment for the wicked
Corruption spreads like a sickness
No hope for us all

Life on your knees
Forced to fight for scraps
This world lines you up and takes a crack

All a reflection of the lies we told
A justification of why we sold our souls

Injustice reigns, in this sick sad place
And in their fall from grace, there'll be no saving face

A subtle reminder
To them we serve a goal
Signed on the dotted line
Forgotten and alone

Guilt passed down from fathers
never absolved of their sin
Just slaves to this game were in

Broken and battered
Mothers cry for relief
Anything to put their starving souls to sleep
And in this life denied
They were victimized
Choking the life from their eyes

Injustice reigns
In this sick sad place

Broken and battered
Mothers cry for relief
Anything to put their starving souls to sleep
And in this life denied
They were victimized
Choking the life from their eyes
Track Name: Soul Ablaze
SOUL ABLAZE
Break free from the chains that have bound me
To indecision, I need to find a way to readjust my vision
Focused on the future
Not the problems of my past
Leave my shame in the grave
Rebirth through lessons learned in pain

I spent my time tying words
Around my neck
Soul ablaze, naked in my shame
Crushed inside the grip of regret
Soul ablaze, naked in my shame

Choices made left me nowhere to go
Cut my losses from a life spent alone
The seething sting of my prides defeat
My emptiness stared back at me

My self destruction, a chance to rise a new
From a reality held askew
Eviscerated by the truth

I spent my time tying words
Around my neck
Soul ablaze, naked in my shame
Crushed inside the grip of regret
Soul ablaze, naked in my shame

Choices made left me nowhere to go
Cut my losses from a life spent alone
And in these days spent so cold
This pain became all I'd know

I may stumble
I may fall
But I won't crumble
Beneath the weight of it all
