Track Name: Criticize
It seems every minute of every single day, someone else always has something to say.
Upset because we don't choose to live a certain way, as if their perception could mean a thing to me.

Because you and I will always strive against those who choose to criticize.
I bear no disguise to the eyes that pry, they could never touch what lies inside.

Your perception isn't law, just figure it out.
We care what you have to say to the smallest amount.
All your presence does is cast a shadow of doubt.
Cast your judgment as we cast you right out.

Because you and I will always strive against those who choose to criticize.
I bear no disguise to the eyes that pry, they could never touch what lies inside.
Track Name: Burn
Against the grain and never the same, a single blade of grass slicing against the winds of change.
Point your finger and mock, rather than extend a hand.
I couldn't care less if you ever understand. X2

Feel the friction against your stance from the people who refuse to learn.
Feel the friction, strike a match, and forever burn.

I'm gonna burn.
Track Name: Last Straw Drawn
The last straw's been drawn

A faded future, an abrupt end.
And you still have the nerve to call me your, "friend".
So tell me why I would make amends, and retie ties you'll only sever again?

It's always another face that you're trying to save.
Look at me through another mask, how long did you think this would last?

All I asked for honesty, was that too much?
Inch by inch you kept stretching my trust.
So I'll take what we had and leave it in the dust.
I'm no longer standing as your crutch.

It's always another face that you're trying to save.
Look at me through another mask, how long did you think this would last?

You cease to uphold the definition of friendship.
It's been a constant war, I'm here to end it.
I drew the line, you double crossed it.
I guess I'll take this knife out my back and cut my losses.
Track Name: Society's Noose
I've never been given a path to choose, I've been always dragged around by society's noose.
Because who I am and what I've seen all predetermine what I can and can't be.

Another wall, another mold.
Another strike of power that's got a hold.
These pressure, these boundaries, these expectations.
This wasn't my choice, I can't face it.

My hopes, my dreams, my passions don't mean anything if I'm not striving to do what's right by me.
I refuse to be tied down by my surroundings.
I refuse to be a slave to society.

The rope get's tighter and continues to choke.
There's always another hand at the end of the rope.
I can't say I'll achieve every choice I endure, but I got to live a life that's mine and not yours.

Another wall, another mold.
Another strike of power that's got a hold.
These pressure, these boundaries, these expectations.
This wasn't my choice, I can't face it.

I was never given a path to choose but, refuse to be dragged around by society's noose.
