Lyrics

Killing Kind Of Mind

Written By: Defined

No recognition of any
Any lost soul found
The constant screaming of one's loss
Hear the crying sound
We choose on life's direction
But the system changes our end
Life has now only become a purchase to our death

We are the victims to some fictitious mind
The haunted cattle of someone's killing kind
Killing Kind of Mind
Conceiving all the days that keep me awake
Some days push me to sleep when I can't relate
(You) See, there are the days...

My anger still un-tamed
All thoughts fierce, armed, and aimed
But where do I begin the fight to finish my escape?
Constant lessons taught
For useless battles fought
Witness the lies that unravel
How the soul in a life is bought

Led leaders die...DIE!

Perfect Balance

Written By: Defined

Pain; You can't enjoy joy without pain
Come try your best!
Gain; I've lost so much for my gain
Come try your test!
I've seen enough to blind me
Got so fucking lost in the dark I couldn't find me
My new wall stands behind me
No room left for redefining

Can't have the sun without rain
Cannot have love without hate
HATE

Break all your corruptions
Mistakes; not the ones that I made
Take all you think is yours
Fake; so fucking fake

We've come so far, but ain't seen it all
Been through all of it
Stepped in everyone's shit
Life is heaven in hell
We live the perfect balance and you won't hear our silence

You cannot ever take this from me when it's all I've owned
NO!

Lessened Learned

Written By: Defined

I confess it's been a mess
Pain distress with no regrets

Why does it seem like this inspires me?
Wealthens my strength while pain is free
Why don't you try and be me?
Killing yourself to set me free

Your initial lies initialized my words of hate
Fed me shit on my plate

In search for something
I ain't looking for nothing
Can't bring my name to shame with your fucken games

Have I learned?
Lessened Learned
Haven't learnt

Did you think that you want to know that you're just fucking up your life??
Didn't think that your time was up, as you're fucking running out of time

It starts as something...Then it leads to nothing. Can't bring me to my knees with your disease.

Debocracy

Written By: Defined

Dying; Left inside a hunger
Processed through a system of binds
(We're)Tired; Dreams are for the sleepless
(They're) Conscious without us in mind
I can't see life going on with all the permanent changes
Hopeless for what's coming on
No hope for re-arranging
Broken; They collapse our own self foundation
Sitting on discomfort
We base our lives on one's decision
For blindly leading
I'll justify my own decisions; myself!

Just if I can justify a purpose for the reasons...?
Rational eyes will rationalize all that is known as irrational
"UNITED CONSCIENCE!"

Justice; Judging set for contradiction
(Their)True lies are bleeding
You justify your self decisions!
(Our)True eyes are tearing
We'll justify our own decisions;
"US ALL!"

(JUST{I}FY)({OUR}{SELF})({DEC}ISION)(INS{IDE})

All they try to take away; Our freedom is gone but we're here to stay!

Me

Written By: Defined

Is there something when I'm your nothing
That could bring me to your reign?
I thought I knew you....I believed you
With nothing to gain
I've been so blind

(You) Found me in my buried grave
(Always) Wake me up to piss to me off then leave
Stay away
Not my day
For you to piss on me this way
I'm not doing this for you
It's for me!

This what I've become...has wrong overcome?
Don't need your agony
Just begging for your fucking "letting be"
To be whoever the fuck I want
Me!

Never asked for this pain
It took me so long to regain
To find myself back in this hell
Robbed when nothing to steal
Card sharked on life's deal
What the fuck did I do wrong? And where?

Killing...Killing me, Severed....Regain strength. Killing Me! Break! Keep waking, hoping that my life will not return to waste. Wanting to forget the memories of my old days.
