Track Name: Generacion Suicida - La Sangre Corre
Se oyen los disparos 
Y los gritos también 
El ruido de El Barrio 
A todo volumen 

La Sangre Correra 
Las madres lloran, lloran 
Los jóvenes pagaran 
Es el precio final 

Muchos no entienden 
El juego de El Barrio 
Es un juego de 
Un sistema podrido 
La Lucha no es entre nosotros mismos 
Pero no podemos ver el enemigo 

Se oyen los disparos 
Las madres lloran, lloran 
Se oyen los disparos 
Las Madres lloraran…
Track Name: Loss for Concern - Savages
Slicing and cutting,
your limbs off your body
Murder for money ,
greed runs in our veins
Our young loved ones,
had no chance to run
some kill for fun,
it's primeval rage
- - - - -
World disillusion
Global pollution
We are what we eat,
Poorly processed meat
Raped women, forced mothers
Fucked over each other
Don't dare call me brother
This world's congested with deceit

An urban jungle is where I'm located
we all wear disguises in Civilization
The weak get eaten as the strong stay on top
Hunter's sneak below the grass, it's an inside job

Abandoning their offspring,
in a vacant alley
To join a protest rally,
against abortion clinics
Fake smiles For all
As the small stand tall
You're a trustworthy snake
honesty you wish to mimic
- - - - -
Vanity in high supply
teens committing suicide
popularity on their mind
Beauty reigns over us
Ignorance preferred,
as our youth speaks in slurs
Our masters go unheard,
and our brains rot and rust

An urban jungle is what's been created
disguises become an obligation predator or prey, where do you stand?
Scavenger or Hunter? We are no longer man

Would you waste your money
or feed the hungry?
Gluttony for everybody, Tell me who's to blame?
Some die for colors
Others die For Lovers
Pride before shame, take cover and aim
- - - - - -
Trade in your fashion
Or die of starvation
this proud Nation's fueled by religious driven lies
Does your skin define you
you don't get to choose
racism and hate hide behind your eyes

We are no better than the cattle that we slaughter
All the chalk lines are drawn by corrupted swine
We're responsible for the poison in our food
we are sending this Earth to its immediate demise

The message is there, the message is so clear

We are more hazardous to this planet than the creatures at we fear

We're blood thirsty savages
Track Name: Hungry Ass Youth - Now I'm Dead
Mass consumption, marked for death
Put it down, fuck the rest
I'm self destructive, it's nothing new
It's my addiction eating food

Carbohydrate, overload
Nonstop tension, might explode
Hungry lifestyle can't defend
My gut exploded, now I'm dead

heavy set in my own ways
Short on breath, close to my grave
Heart attack or massive stroke
Can't fit more, my stomach tore

Carbohydrate, overload
Nonstop tension, might explode
Hungry lifestyle can't defend
My gut exploded now I'm dead!

With all this food inside my guts, I can't cut back I'm real fucked up
My guts are pushed out to the max, skin is stretching can't relax
With all this food inside my guts, the pressure builds I'm gonna bust!

Now I'm fucking dead!
Track Name: Animals and Children - Too Fucked to Fail
25 years got nowhere to go
25 years no place to call my home
We had nothing to do but make some noise
Had nothing to lose, we were nothing boys

Lived our lives like mother fuckers
Every night just getting drunker
Mixing pills and powders too
The only way to make it through
Mota, coca, crys and shrooms
Benzos oxies morphine too
Nitrous shots, hot knives n rails
Lived our lives too fucked to fail

We lived our lives Too fucked to fail
We lived our lives Too fucked to fail


33 years now I can't believe
33 years I never thought I'd see
We had no one to see us through
We were nothing boys, nothing to lose

Lived our lives like mother fuckers
Every night just getting drunker
Mixing pills and powders too
The only way to make it through
Mota, coca, crys and shrooms
Benzos oxies morphine too
Nitrous shots, hot knives n rails
Lived our lives too fucked to fail

We lived our lives Too fucked to fail
We lived our lives Too fucked to fail
We lived our lives Too fucked to fail
We lived our lives Too fucked to fail
Track Name: Dr. Ghost - Birth of Our Nation
The birth of our nation was shot on a 12 reel
The modern aberration learned how to conceal
Hiding in plain sight
It's nothing new
Numbers keep rising

But we all see who you have chosen to lead you
The hate all of you agree to

More organized, disguise revised, decentralized
Recruit the weak, weed out the meek, and mobilize

The new face of hate
The new face of retreat, relapse to a place that never existed
Regress, rehash settled ground that you have twisted

The stewards of civility
Policing through hostility
A hindrance you slow down all progress
It's not just you this is all our mess
Leverage all that I have to stop you
Every last ounce of will to fight you

Everything to make you feel safe, for no reason
Everything to save you from pain, no fucking reason
Track Name: Dropcase - Hyperactivity
I wanna run
I wanna hide
I can't think straight
too hard to try

So many colors
so many distractions
I'm shaking in my desk
no satisfactions

Can't sit still
Hyperactivity
Don't want pills
Feel dead like zed
Get our of my head

It's like a needle
in my head
I don't know what
anybody said

That's why identity's
the only single thing
that doesn't care about
my ADHD
Track Name: NNN - Creature Kill
Creature kill 

He’s on your feel 
He wants your eyes 
Or maybe your face 
He’ll lead you to the house of pain 
Away with your face with no remorse 

Creature kill
Track Name: Absurd Tones - Sold My Soul for the 2-Tone
sold my soul for the 2 tone / dont think ill be coming back
i saw your name on a tomb stone / guess i dont owe you jack

sold my sould for the 2 tone / dont think ill be coming back
i saw you dancing at the disco / it was a midnight heart attack
buckle up and drive have fun tonight / she said as she passed the tab
with rude boy in the mix / junkie getting his fix / no red lights stopping us tonight

i saw your name on a tomb stone / guess i dont owe you jack
secret agents knocking at my window / it was a midnight heart attack
was it the media lies / government eyes / all looking as i pass by
now im a runnin man / free at last / there aint no turning no no turning back
Track Name: Spider - Pleasure Fold (Jabbz Sessions)
Nothing left but a pleasure fold 

Nothing left but a 

Nothing left but a pleasure fold 

Nothing left but a 


Let me know your step secret baby 

Let me see your astronaut smile 

Let me in your water bubble 

Let me see your wings tonight 

Nothing left but a pleasure fold 

Nothing left but a 

Nothing left but a pleasure fold 

Nothing left but a 

Like a mermaid with a lemonade kiss 

You spark my inner smile 

When I close my eyes 

I can see a hundred miles 

Let me know your step secret baby 

Let me see your astronaut smile 

Let me in your water bubble 

Let me see your wings tonight 




I punched the clock that took my life 

Gave up on that road 

I took a bite out of life 

Nothing left but a pleasure fold

My heart’s on fire 

My fingers bleed 

Always knew it’d be this way 

Sometimes good things go 

Sometimes good things stay 



Let me know your step secret baby 

Let me see your astronaut smile 

Let me in your water bubble 

Let me see your wings tonight 

We’ll I’ll never take you back 

Which says I never would 

They say you are crap 

They tell me you’re no good 

They never thought I could 

They tell me how to be 

They say you’re my friend 

I don’t want to be

Bowed out silently 

Bowed out to save my soul 

The machine moves on 

I’m sipping beers in Tokyo 



I reach out for something real 

Innocence – Honesty 

You’re the place I’m looking for 

Take me under your wing 


Let me know your step secret baby 

Let me see your astronaut smile 

Let me in your water bubble 

Let me see your wings tonight, tonight!
Track Name: This is a Train Wreck - Oh Captain, Why Captain?! feat Yotam Ben-Horin
Oh Captain, Why Captain?! 

(V1)
This was our chance to change it
But instead it's all a fucking mess
Their lies spread out like fires
I'm done with all of their promises 

It's times like this
Where I can't see the plan
That is up ahead
And the whole world is laughing 
Laughing at his incompetence 

(C)
Well what can I say but
The worlds going to shit
They are all sending us to hell
Goddamn these politics
"SO TELL ME"

(V2)
Sit back it's intermission 
The second act is better yet
This was the new beginning 
Of this fucked establishment 

They speak of strong core values 
Yet lead in rhetoric of hate
And now we stand divided
And they're the only ones to blame.

(C)
Well what can I say but
The worlds going to shit
They are all sending us to hell
Goddamn these stupid politics

Music and Lyrics by This Is A Train Wreck 2017
Track Name: The Paradoks - Mind Control
Trapped inside, didn't have a clue
I was once controlled inside of my mind
They held on to my hands and throat
Used a bandana to cover my eyes
My name's Janet
I was blinded for years so I couldn't see the stamp on my back
But one day I finally broke away and the truth and lies were perfectly clear

It's sick
Is this really how...
It's sick
...you want to live?
It's sick
They just let it be...
It's sick
...but I have no choice

Standing still,  standing my ground
I want to leave a print not a mark
Judging from all standing points cause they're shallow brains just can't comprehend
They target you
Material desires
Those are the things that we should set fire
They're all driven by a production of shit that's just a waste of life's time

It's sick
Is this really how...
It's sick
...you want to live?
It's sick
They just let it be...
It's sick
...but I have no choice

They can't see, not like me, that freedom's not what they've really got
Convinced that they can make a choice when the decision's already been made
And when their time is done they'll think they had a blast, their life was a trip
But in the end, what's over soon?
A life they lived by somebody's way

It's sick
Is this really how...
It's sick
...you want to live?
It's sick
They just let it be...
It's sick
...but I have no choice
Track Name: Reco!l - 40 oz
Verse:
Hear the crash of the 40 ounce, it's the worst sound that I felt
Bondage belts and boots in the night, cigarette smoke fill in the skies
Puke and chunks are on the floor, the worst kind of vomit that I saw
Rabid drunk punx hit the store, get more 40's for the boi's! (x2)

Chorus:
Give me another 40 ounce!
Chug it down and watch me bounce(x4)
Track Name: Hero Injection - Reaper
You can't run and you can't hide
Your eternal soul will be mine
Take your last breath Say your goodbyes 
Death is breathing down your neck 

You can't run and you can't hide
Your eternal soul will be mine
Take your last breath Say your goodbyes 
Death is breathing down your neck

I am the reaper
Keeper of all souls
Forever seeking out 
Ultimate control 
I will take you on 
bringing forth your death
This will be your end
You have drawn Your last breath

I can't stop I won't stop
Till you drop I can't stop
Can't stop death 
Unforseen 
Your last breath
It's obscene 

It's all gone you are soon to be
No more and I'll take over          x3

Scythe come down 
Brain splatters 
Blood will pour
Nothing matters

You can't run and you can't hide
Your eternal soul will be mine
Take your last breath Say your goodbyes 
Death is breathing down your neck

You can't run and you can't hide
Your eternal soul will be mine
Take your last breath Say your goodbyes 
Death is breathing down your neck

I am the reaper
Keeper of all souls
Forever seeking out 
Ultimate control 
I will take you on 
bringing forth your death
This will be your end
You have drawn Your last breath


I can't stop I won't stop
Till you drop I can't stop
Can't stop death 
Unforseen 
Your last breath
It's obscene 

And I'll be there
To kill all of you
Bloody and true

And I'll be there
To kill all of you
Bloody and true
Track Name: Carpit - Society War
Do you believe in anything
listen up to what they say
questions fly the answers lie
lives getting harder as we try
time is come now what do you believe
government‘s got something up their sleeve
looks like a society war
what the fuck we fighting for
a billion dollars in the hole
you need to smoke another bowl.
  So hard
  so rough
  no job
  it sucks
  society is taking me down.
  More money
  more rent
  more tax well spent
 drug test that’s it
 now you fail 
Wanna come and take our guns
rights to bear arms that’s what it was
now I see another war
knock knock knock knock on your door
is there something I can believe
a dirty trick right up their sleeve
they don’t give a shit
they take your way to the pit
  so hard
  so rough
  no job
  it sucks
 society is
 taking me down
 more money
 more rent
 more tax well spent
 drug test that’s it
 now you fail

Track Name: With Liberty - Time
No countering the clock; Loose threads won't interlock
Let's rewind only to find there's no gears, no ties that bind
Time lost in clips, grain's lost in drips
Come to grips, your rope is clipped
The hourglass cannot be flipped

Turn back the sands of time

Memories start to haze
Skin cracks, hair turns gray
Chronophobic disillusions
Only one concrete conclusion
Possessions won't be saved, paths that won't be paved
No matter how or when you go, you'll always have a grave

Lost it all to father time
Slowly lose track of your mind
Feel life is getting shorter
Can't put all this into order
Learn to take shallow breaths
Crying out your thoughts of death
A lifetime of banality
Damnation in your finality

Turn back the sands of time
Track Name: Dismantle Force - Sanity
Sanity

In the night, its time to die
My mind goes black, is it suicide

Take back the pill I need
Free my pain of Sanity
In this world just leave me be
Wheres God who can save me

Out of sight and out of mind
Temptation has overtaken
Presence has awakened
Track Name: ICM - Flesh Mall
FLESH MALL

This is a song
About a mall
Made of flesh
That wants to crawl
Into your room
And give you hugs
Kiss your lips
Swallow the bugs

Why must I be
Allowed to make this song
I should be locked away
And and given a gun
Remove myself from
This life
With a shot between the eyes

Flesh Mall
Flesh Mall
Let it crawl
Flesh Mall

What kind of girl
Would want to breed
Satan spawn
With the likes of me

I doubt anyone could
Look into these eyes
And see anything
But perverted lies

I cry at night into my sheets
That a mall made of flesh
Gets more coochie then me
But in the end I guess I win
Cause i wont get a single STD

Flesh Mall
Flesh Mall
It will crawl
Flesh Mall


MISSED OPPORTUNITY FOR ABORTION LYRICS

I cant believe that you left me
On the floor after I was delivered
I guess that's the reason why im fucked up
And aroused by the sight of dying dogs

I want your cunt

Just the fact that I can get access
To a weapon should bring fear
To the hearts of the innocent
Far and near

When will you realize that I want to
Suck and fuck your naked feet
I live like a disgusting pig now
Almost dead out in the street

There is nothing that you can say
That will bring me back to the light
I am destined to go to hell
For everything I will do tonight

I want your cunt

I will get that cunt
If it is the last thing I do
I will suck upon your flesh
Make it like a tasty stew
Track Name: the deleteD - There's a Method to the Madness
Cold breeze, thumping chest
sweaty palms, restlessness
don't know the limit, don't know whats next
expect the worst, they say it makes the best

Running fast or running slow
the barking dogs they let them go
their piercing fangs wont let you go
They push you far, so you push some more

There! There's a method to the madness!
There! There! There's a method to the madness!

Toss and Turn, Body aches
The outside world, it keeps it pace
erase it all, build new face
relearn the basics, relearn the chase

There! There's a method to the madness!
There! There! There's a method to the madness!
Track Name: Born in Demise - Still I Rise feat Kaysey Guerrero
Still I Rise

I remember eating stale bread and greens
And ducking under the screens 
So we couldn't see the murder  scenes
 
In the background my momma playing Supremes 
Over speakers distracting us so we couldnt hear the gun shots
Or so she thought,
Everyday I wake up to another horror expecting the worst but thankful cuz we couldnt get no poorer praisin 
the hallelujah chorus
Stuck in God's forbidden forest
Under duress of a civil servant living through the storm
Yea He's my savior with a double edged sword
But cutting the chordll damage the body 
to honor
which it swore
So Can we get an intermission
For this submission
A penny and a pond so perhaps we can throw a wish in?

And though born in demise
Still I rise

And I will survive


What makes you mad?
The fact that I Am copper and bright
Is this what makes us demonstrate on site?
A spark ignites like a rod and a kite
Or is it the fact that u cant bring me down
I'm ten steps ahead of your attempts to decrown 
My effortless aura's making ppl turn around
And start marching to the beat of a new improved sound
Yea I will fight til my very last breath 
For the weak who can't 
And I'll still love u to death but look
There's no time for your selfishness 
The buildings crumbling around us as we sink to the pits 
I'm keeping up with just my wits
So dont think that this is just hit or miss
But youre an overseer so I'll give you this
It won't effect u but trust me it'll murder your kids


And while we die know that your whole life is a lie 
constructed by the very people pivoting their pawns for sacrifice

This is a call to arms to stand and fight for what's right
And though they point and laugh when they hear me cries
Still I rise 

You were never guna give it to me
Take all that you thought you knew  and promptly throw it away
We are rising from the depths of history

Hear us coming if youre forced to look away
call to arms for an attack
 but it'll be too late
We are slowly rising like tsunami
Lightening thunder

Through the storm through fire through thunder and light
Though my body is weak
I won't give in tonight

I'll wade the water

Feel the earth shake beneath me as I rise like the sea
Feel the roots of persecution rip away with trees

I'll wade the water
Track Name: Nightmare Enterprises - The Holocaust Continues...
The Holocaust Continues...

The holocaust continues as we speak winged creatures are de-feathered and de-beaked
The young are separated from their families
They live what lives they have as products in a factory until they're led in a prod-conducted train to the chamber where their kind is mercilessly slain to become the next link in the ever-growing chain to fulfill the order of the ever-hungry man

Cannibal Society

Come with me now I invite you to see the rich catered around the table in their luxuries stuffing themselves rancorously, their eyes glazed in the trance-like state of the feast
They scramble like vermin over the main course of the meal, a roasted dark-skinned body stamped with a corporate seal

Straight from the womb to the conveyor belt
Uniform glaze makes us suppress ourselves
Baked to a state of lethargy
Unable to rise, unable to flee

Labor consumes the not-so-priviledged man
He sizzles in the industrial frying pan
His joys are strained, the desolation rises
He's fed upon by the wealthy and their enterprises

Take the industrial hearse to the inner city
See the gobbled remains of life that used to be
Sprinkling the gutter like banana peels,
the walking devoured wander like ghosts of past meals

Where big chief sends the lessers to fight his war,
to climb the pyramid means stepping on those below
Where dancing around the fire means throwing others in,
there lies the society I live in
