Track Name: AGAINST WHITE SUPREMACY
against white supremacy
no walls, no borders, no one is illegal
refugees welcome
if you have a racist friend now is the time for you friendship to end
if you have a racist friend now is the time for you friendship to end
reject xenophobia
Track Name: cornerstone
"conquering // culture of addiction"

sober fight
with sincere intent to construct a better world
instead of enduring a lifetime of shit defaults
a focused mind is my cornerstone
and the only authority I need
Track Name: WASTED EDGE
you're taking something just to turn it into nothing
you think straightedge alone exempts you from fault?
do you think avoiding meat exempts you from fault?
is an internet update doing anything at all?
your fashion and claims aren't gonna save the world around you
yeah your beliefs are a step in the right direction
but you don't need guns cos these are your only weapons
but if you're stagnant and still everything will be the same unchanged

you don't have to be wasted to be a fucking waste man
there are struggles in life but you're too fucking scared to face them
when it's our systems' ideals that cloud your head
we've gotta change our default status to a better world instead
change our default status to a better world instead
outside of fashion trends fuck the status quo
yeah I'm gonna be anything but default

ANYTHING BUT DEFAULT!!!
you don't have to be wasted to be a fucking waste man
there are struggles in life but you're too fucking scared to face them
when it's our systems' ideals that cloud your head
we've gotta change our default status to a better world instead

remember that straightedge is about flexing your head
so I want you to assess the reasons why you're not just drunk instead
buying hats and shoes to wear while playing video games (LAME!)
even if you were on drugs wouldn't that shit probably be the same?
when you decided to abstain how did your daily life change?
was a true alternative to a slavery culture what you chose to embrace?
an unclouded mind to live life raw, such a powerful tool, realize
if you're sober you gotta use that edge to accomplish the things you could not otherwise

you don't have to be wasted to be a fucking waste man
there are struggles in life but you're too fucking scared to face them
when it's our systems' ideals that cloud your head
we've gotta change our default status to a better world instead
...a better world instead
Track Name: I DON'T EAT FLESH
(this song goes out to the vegetarians and vegans)
I don't! eat! flesh!
what am I here for, what do we need
ANIMAL LIBERATION! now
I just think what if it was me...

I just think what if it was me!
my body torn to shreds by the privileged needlessly
so for one life against abuse, against imperial species
won't let myself be callous, not just thinking with my teeth NO

the flesh of a creature that lives and breathes
the flesh of a creature like you or me
what if it was me, what if it was me...

beyond every joke and excuse your friends are gonna make
intentionally ignorant and afraid to deviate
I thought hardcore was a way to live however you want
so if it's still the standard to rock apathy I know it's radical to give a fuck

if I see it's the standard to rock apathy
then I know it must be radical to give a fuck
one time this time I know I gotta decide...
going out to anyone considering adopting a Vegan diet, a Vegan life philosophy
when you see that animal liberation IS human liberation...

any mammal only produces milk when it's impregnated
just like us humans every cow is the same
so to keep farming milk we're talking perpetual pregnancy
and to be artificially fucked all your life is a strain
aside from the minds and bodies of these animals living under abuse
they're always pregnant so what becomes of the children they produce?
out of compassion you don't eat meat so what's the harm in milk and cheese?
but the children of these dairy cows are just fodder for the veal industry

one time for their liberation and I'll make it mine GO!
animal liberation now now right now GO!
animal liberation and I'll make it mine...

beyond every joke and excuse your friends are gonna make
intentionally ignorant and afraid to deviate
I thought hardcore was a way to live however you want
so if it's still the standard to rock apathy I know it's radical to give a fuck
with empathy
with empathy I just think... what if it was me
my body torn to shreds by the privileged needlessly
so for one life against abuse, against imperial species
won't let myself be callous, not just thinking with my teeth NO
I'm not just thinking with my teeth no...
Track Name: in one night
"sabotage" "no one got hurt, no one was injured"
"the animal rights and environmental movement more than any other social justice movement
fundamentally challenge what it means to be a human being"
"millions of dollars in property damage"
"I identified half a dozen targets that I thought were crucial to its further propagation and we neutralized those targets"
"in one night they'd accomplished what years of letter writing and picketing had never been able to do..."
Track Name: IGNITER
Disclaimer: This is merely a song. Its lyrix harmless poetry to be lost in the oblivion of dead subcultures; never to inspire more than a pacified head nodding to a generic beat. Any implications derived beyond this humble intent of entertainment are purely the responsibility of the listener, and not of another hopelessly obscure rock band. Let's be realistic; what power could music really have these days?

(going out to the Earth Liberation Front and anyone who's ever risked their freedom or been in prison for defending the one world we all gotta share to survive...)

no compromise
this Earth for all must not be jeopardized

predetermined and concentrated placement of incendiary devices
composed of a well-tested timer, igniter, and 5 gallon barrels of accelerant
can take out the roof of a building rendering it effectively inoperational
this type of action should be a last resort
when means of conventional protest and lawful combat
have failed to neutralize confirmed threats to the natural environment
we all gotta share we all have to share for any species' survival

legal risks demand the target's assured destruction
inanimate property cannot outweigh a life
no person or creature may be harmed in this process
just merciless economic devastation to fight the eco-holocaust

...or I guess you could just sign a couple more online petitions
you could even memorize the words to this punk song
and feel a cathartic sense that you are actively resisting some death machine

or you could commit your life to Earth Liberation
a commitment for each of us that takes unique form
united yet anonymous the ELF is fiercely non-fiction
learn Security Culture like not reciting the words to this song

...when fear is the norm love is radical
arson executed with immaculate strategy
can bring down industries of ecocide

"talk minus action equals zero"
Track Name: LIVE or DON'T
you probably do not know me well
and chances are you can relate
to a wrenching fight against depression
year by year yeah every day
past the ghosts of promises
scars I have from childhood faith
struggle with the most basic efforts
often seems like it's always been this way

private obstacles of "what's the point"
standing amidst so many shattered lies of permanence
with total liberation your autobiography
there is no authority but yourself

but it all boils down to LIVE or DON'T
I know there's not much merit in nothing in between
and worth in this life is mine to define
any laws of existence truly mean nothing

regardless of an ethic to be positive in public
suicide is on my mind in between everything I do
but if I'm not going to die then I know I have to live
and I live in a world that is shared with you
this world needs our help if it's going to survive
and to the torture of its creatures I cannot contribute
so I'll try to learn what promotes its health
and live one life against abuse

cos it all boils down to LIVE or DON'T
I know there's not much merit in nothing in between
and worth in this life is mine to define
any laws of existence truly mean nothing
I know it all boils down to LIVE or DON'T
and I know that choice is up to me

suicide or struggle
resistance or resignation
with total liberation your autobiography
there is no authority but yourself
