Track Name: General Greed
State of Uncertainty
Track Name: S.O.U (State of Uncertainty)
Tighten, my pins
Push them all deep so you have a good grip
Dispose, my skin
And etch on my wood that you’re cracking the whip
Now that you’re the one with all the control
You used your stronghold to suck out my soul
I used to walk with no stress on my limbs
But you cast your strings, and I had to give in

You’re like a crow
Cut off your ties or I’ll come off the rack
Letting you go
I will resist til my wood starts to crack

How should, I know
The moment you’re fed up and pull on my thread
Waiting, for your blow
Whenever you lie and don’t pull up my head
I will free
myself from this
Frail embrace

You’re like a crow
Cut off your ties or I’ll come off the rack
Letting you go
I will resist till my wood starts to crack

You’re like a crow
Cut off your ties or I’ll come off the rack
Letting you go
I will resist til my wood starts to crack
With no return
You left me in a state of uncertainty
Willing to burn
If I’m not myself, then who else should I be?
Track Name: Petty Hoes
Verse 1:
One time I got screwed real bad
My girl was a-fightin for all I had
She said “I’m not mad” but I teased it out
“You’re scarin’ me honey, no need to shout”
I’m the enemy of her verbal war
I try to escape but she still wants more
Just tryna hold the peace and not say shit
And somehow she gets offended by it


Chorus:
I held my tongue but still got branded
Gotta watch out for the petty hoes
She tried to explain but I didn’t understand it
Betta (pause) watch out for the petty hoes
Petty hoes

Verse 2:
Now I gotta tip-toe around the house
I tried being honest but she still had doubts
She prances ‘round the point but ne’er gets there
honestly, you can really be blunt, I don’t care
If you just speak true, hell, you’d save us both time!
Then maybe I wouldn’t have to write this rhyme
But whenever I sit back and sip my wine
You say, “bullshit, that’s way outta line”

Chorus:
I held my tongue but still got branded
Gotta watch out for the petty hoes
She tried to explain but I didn’t understand it
Betta watch out for the petty hoes
Petty hoes

Verse 3:
They always hang around like thought police
Now I’m trying to leave, she says “no baby, pls”
To think this is the girl I used to admire
Now I’m ready to cast it into the fire
So I took my bags and I took my car
And I told my friends to meet me at the bar
No worries in my mind and a cold beer in hand
Pray to God that don’t ever happen again

Chorus:
I held my tongue but still got branded
Gotta watch out for the petty hoes
She tried to explain but I didn’t understand it
Betta (pause) watch out for the petty hoes
Petty hoes
Petty hoes
Track Name: Hyperaction
VERSE 1
I don't know what's In your mind
I just know it can be refined
In this world there's no recourse
Me to you is no remorse

Cause I’ve had it with the pharmacies
Planting razors inside of me
But I can’t sit here playing dumb
When there’s so much to be done

CHORUS 1
Choke down this bitter pill
I cannot eat and cannot sleep but
I can remain so still to
Sit here and do everything now
so when you come to me dont
Be offended by my blank stare
I feel empty
But there is much to be done

VERSE 2
I sit
And wait
And now i'm walking out again
I pace
I wait
For the tension to rise again
I’m down
I’m high
I’ve never felt a focus that I could chew on
Why
Am I
Not feeling anything at all?

CHORUS 2
Choke down this bitter pill
I cannot eat and cannot sleep but
I can remain so still to
Sit here and do everything now
So when you come to me dont
Be offended by my blank stare
Ive gone crazy
But there's much to be done

(Guitar solo)

CHORUS 3
Choke on this bitter end
I cannot eat and cannot sleep but
I still try to pretend I
Can do anything I want now
So when you come to me don’t
Be offended by my blank stare
I feel perfect but
There’s something wrong

OUTRO
I’m flying high, high, high
I’m flying high, high, high
I’m flying high, high, high
I’m flying high, high, high
High, high, high!
High, high, high!
High, high, high!
High, high, high, high!
Track Name: Wolves
Through this wood I walk alone
cold is biting to the bone
Howling wind, through my mind
Isolated, undefined
Crack the whip, drive me on
Walking through til the dawn
My body yearns to collapse
In one more bad relapse

Twisting in my bitter sleep
I am just a bitter creep
Hearing my own future creep
Only born to die no peep

All Alone

Falling through the broken cracks
The Wolves are hunting in their packs
The stalker sends his own impact
When daggers fly into their backs

Let me go

To and fro, twist and turn
Some things you can never learn
Taunting me, oh so close
sleep oh sleep, I’ll have my dose
Counting sheep, in their flock
I’m kept awake with shock
Insomnia, take me home
From their hateful gaze I can’t roam

Twisting in my bitter sleep
I am just a bitter creep
Hearing my own future creep
Only born to die no peep

All Alone

Falling through the broken cracks
The Wolves are hunting in their packs
The stalker sends his own impact
When daggers fly into their backs

Let me go

Curse me once : Cause my flight
Curse me twice : cause my bite
Curse me three times die tonight
I am one who’s entered plight
Blow me up I’m dynamite
Revel in my endless spite
Spite
Spite
Spite
BANSHEE SCREAM
