about

This band is not meant to make a joke out of or romanticize the events of the Columbine shooting, nor do we condone the actions taken by anyone involved. The meaning is that people were hurt and hurt others because of it, which is the exact reaction that we have had as a band just from revealing our name. People can be quick to judge when they don't understand and would rather point the finger than try and think about it from both sides.

Track Name: VT
WAKING MYSELF UP TO HELL IN MY BRAIN
TEMPLES COLLAPSING, CAN'T PRAY IT AWAY

SETTING FIRE TO THE ROOF OF MY MOUTH
I WON'T SLEEP 'TIL THIS DEMON GETS OUT

KILLING ME OFF ONE DUTY AT A TIME
IT ALWAYS WORKS WHEN INTERNALIZED

SETTING FIRE TO THE ROOF OF MY MOUTH
I WON'T SLEEP 'TIL THIS DEMON GETS OUT

WHAT FOR? WHY CAN'T I KEEP UP
IS THIS A CHAPTER OF MY LIFE

I WANT TO EITHER END IT NOW
OR THROW 'WAY THE KEY AND START OVER AGAIN
Track Name: GENOCIDE
TAKE A BULLET FROM INSIDE YOUR HEAD
WHAT DOES IT BRING BACK
UNPREDICTABLE, SELFISH
YOU'VE FOUND ECSTASY IN LED

THIS AIN'T A PARTY
YOU'RE NOT IN PARADISE
YOU'RE DANCING AROUND IN THE AFTERLIFE
YOU'VE PICKED A FIGHT
ANYONE CAN WIN
GUN IN THE MOUTH TO SWALLOW YOUR PRIDE

YOU ARE A MONSTER
YOU'RE NOT AS ADVERTISED
WHAT MADE YOU SO STUCK UP
IT WASN'T ALL YOUR FAULT
IT'S NOT ALL UP TO YOU
WHAT MAKES YOU SO DAMN SPECIAL

THERE'S NO RELIEF IN THIS
YOU COULD START OVER
BUT ONE LIFE WAS ALL YOU HAD
SELF GENOCIDE
OF ALL YOU LOVED
LEGACY GONE TO WASTE

TAKES THE PROMISE OF DEATH
TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS THERE
BUT NO HEAVEN OR HELL
YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN SHIT
LIFE IS DISPOSABLE.
DEATH HAS NO MEMORY
SO WHAT IS THERE TO LOSE
Track Name: DYNASTY
I KNOW YOU'RE ABOVE THE LAW
YOU'VE BEEN DOING THIS FOREVER
VIOLENT EXERCISE OF POWER
LEADING US TO DESTROY OUR OWN

YOU COULD HAVE THE CHOICE OF A LIFETIME
TO ACT ON OUR WILL OR BY CORPORATE LIES
LEARNING THEIR WAYS, YOU MARKET WHAT IMAGE YOU CAN
EASY WHEN YOUR CORE VALUES ARE FOR SALE

TOSS A LITTLE LOAF OUR WAY
MAKE IT SEEM FAIR
RUN OFF WITH THE SPOILS
WHILE OUR THUMB'S UP OUR ASS

YOU DON'T REPRESENT US
WE HAVE POWER OVER YOU
Track Name: KNOWLEDGE IS TORTURE
WALLOWING IN SELF-PITY
ENDOWING PAIN IN ALL I'VE LEARNED
TAKES THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
TO SHOW I DON'T BELONG IN EITHER

IT'S JUST AGGRESSION TOWARD MY PEACE OF MIND
IT'S TAKEN SOME GETTING USED TO
SOME FOREIGN AGENTS TO QUELL THE SORROW
INDULGING IN OTHER PEOPLE'S VICES

WHATEVER FUCKS ME UP FIRST

IT'S EASY TO SEE
THAT GENOCIDE IS MY UPBRINGING
SO GO AHEAD AND DIG THAT HOLE
A FRONT ROW SEAT TO ENJOY THE SHOW

WHAT THE HELL HAVE I LOST
IN GAINING KNOWLEDGE OF TRUE INTENT
IT'S USUALLY PLAIN TO SEE
BUT THE EXCEPTION IS ME

WE ALL MEAN WELL, BUT MOST OF US ARE FUCKED

IT'S EASY TO SEE
THAT GENOCIDE IS MY UPBRINGING
SO GO AHEAD AND DIG THAT HOLE
A FRONT ROW SEAT TO ENJOY THE SHOW
Track Name: CRY WOLF
Y'ALL ARE ALWAYS THE VICTIMS
PARADING AS OUR SAVIORS
YOU CAN'T HANDLE DISSENT IN A WORLD THAT COULD MAKE YOU SHIT YOURSELF

CRYING WOLF HAS BECOME YOUR CLAIM TO FAME
YOU'RE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO SHAME
HOW MANY OTHERS BUT YOURSELF CAN YOU BLAME

PLAY ALONG UNLESS IT ISN'T BY YOUR RULES
YOU WERE RAISED LIKE KINGS AND QUEENS
IT ISN'T EASY FIGHTING OPPRESSION
WHEN YOU'VE CHEAPENED THE WORDS THAT MEANT SOMETHING

YOU'RE SO OPPRESSED
