I ripped the unknown right off my back, 'Cause I don't need no reassurance to tell me, My body is stone and rock, my mind is black, I never needed to worry. I'm nothin' but trouble, Don't waste my time, The hate, the pain, it only scratches the surface I'm nothin' but trouble, You wasted my time, I make my own luck, don't owe you nothin'. No, baby, don't gotta think it over, Cause I don't need no assurance to tell me, Pain is truth, and pain will sober, I never needed to worry. No baby, don't gotta reassure ya, Cause I don't need no assurance to tell me, To be a man, the world's your burden, Now you'll be needin' to worry.

BAD INTENT 01:47
You see me lookin' so dark, You see my eyes like a dart, Wondering if you're my mark, Like the hungriest shark, Tryin' to make my mark on you from the start, It came and went, My bad intent. Can't take my eyes off the door, Any place but here, I feel my standards erode, The pain I love to ignore, Gonna make my mark, don't care who it hurts or it bores, So now you're looking for lies, Losers shaking hands, you know it is no surprise, Can't look yourself in the eye, You got fed real pain and now you're looking to hide, Not hiding a bit, Your bad intent.

V8 ENGINE 02:12
Night is blue and grey, I'll tear it down, The things I do and say, You can't say aloud, You always break, I bend, That's how I know, My heart's an engine It just goes and goes and goes, I built myself up, From the engines down, Arms that never brake, Yeah, I own this town, Narrow road is black, Pavement is straight and cold, Never lookin' back, I never learned to fold, Everybody tries to count me out, Increasing pressure will never take me down, There's a V8 engine in my heart and it has just began to start up. I see the tidal wave, Work's never done Nothin' worth doin', Is ever fun, Now I know that, Fear's in the air, When you're tuff enuff, You're never scared, I've never been afraid to fight, Every day and every night,

COFFIN BREAK 02:03
You couldn't possibly figure it out for yourself, A pieced together person, pretend to hurt and know hell, Now you're leaving everyone feeling cheated and slighted, You wanna see what a fight is? I'll show you a fight. Life's a coffin, break out. Life's a coffin break. You hold a hope you have no plan or way to obtain, You never had a reason to use what's in your brain, You're held down by all the self-imposed toxins and filth, The lies you tell to protect yourself from your all the guilt, Your life's a coffin, break out. Now you're saying you were never supposed to succeed, You were held down with all of the judgement and greed, Now I'm laughing in the face of change, I'm not frightened, You wanna see what a fight is? I'll show you a fight. My life's a coffin, I broke out, Life's a coffin break. Your life's a coffin, break out.

I started guarding my time, I started taking my time to understand and vet, All the things that you hide, Why the world has to lie to feel flawless, yeah The brand new ways to be cruel that you taught me. It went on way too long, Where I denied the message you were sending to me, So now I'm shaking you off, I'm done trying to find the message you're sending, The brand new ways to be cruel that you taught me. Now I'm both open and closed, I see a real and true dilemma, it began and arose, Do I care to expose, The lies the world tells just to seem flawless, So just take it from me, If you look out the window and you see the mistakes, People are striving to be, You're not alone, I can hear you when you're calling out, The brand new ways to be cruel the world taught me, The brand new ways to be cruel the world taught me, The brand new ways to be cruel the world taught me.

You think you're smart, But you don't have a grasp, On how this world works, You don't know the half, Nobody taught you that the streets aren't as safe as they seem, Sharks from the deep breathe, they're only coming up to feed. Nothing to say, And now you're looking back So now you pay, For mistakes you made in the past, We always love to be right about the winning team, Sharks from the deep breathe, they're only coming up to feed. No easy way, To learn the harshest truth That every day, You can only count on you, Nobody taught you that the streets aren't as safe as they seem, Sharks from the deep breathe, they're only coming up to feed. The blood red sky, It's shining down like hell, Now you wonder why, You can't protect yourself, We always love to tell people what to think and need, Sharks from the deep breathe, they're only coming up to feed. The whole world's askin' if they can join the losing team, Sharks from the deep breathe, you either fight or let them feed.

Got an excuse for anything, everything, Not worth the price and the value you bring, You don't respect yourself, it's something you're not My flame is burnin' so hot, You'll abuse, lose anything, everything, Just to say you had a real chance to win, To pick and choose, yeah, that's something you're not, My flame burns and it just won't stop. I'm living just to run, I'm running just to live, Roaming town to town, now I'm movin' sin to sin. Don't know where I'm from, don't where I've been, Lookin' in the mirror, at a flame, a strength within.

WEAK/STRONG 02:50
As truth is sliding away, The incurious find, Others to lose with and pray, Other incurious minds, Now we just try to approach, Who cares less or who cares most, I don't need to infer. The town waits outside the door, I'm just closing my eyes, Now I'm just told to ignore, All the things the world hides, Nothing goin' in your head, No difference, dead or alive, You've taken all you can get, It's always taken too long, To hide the pain in your eyes, Now we know who's weak and strong, By who tells the truth and who lies And you can try to break free, But it's my justice and truth, That will comfort and save me, And will maim and destroy you, It's always taken too long, To hide the pain in your eyes, Now we know who's weak and strong, By who tells the truth and who lies And now you made the mistake, Trusting the wrong source of truth, Now you have no one to blame, Besides you, you, you, you

I love the sound when I smash the glass, And I'm not, not afraid to confront the past, Mistakes, you made, I solved before you knew, (I've) learned to expect the worse and not to wait around for you. I love the sound when a fight breaks out, Squared up, you've put up and now it's time to put down, I knew, that you couldn't handle my brutal truths, Only the TUFF survive and now you you you you, I'm making all the rules, it doesn't matter what you say, I'm breaking all your rules because they're all just in my way, Now you see that it doesn't matter how you feel, Because I'm making my own rules and I know I always will. I love the sound of a shotgun blast, and you asked, Runnin on empty when you need to run fast, Mistakes, you made, I asked before you knew, (I've) learned to expect the worse and not to wait around for you.

BURNING HOT 02:15
You're seein' there's nothing in your heart, Except pain, I'm standing up. Your world's falling apart. You just take it, I work hard, the pain agrees, You just take it, Cause nothing's ever free in my heart. You're feelin' my fire, that's my flame, Everyday, truth and hate, they're both the same, I won't fake it, I burn hot flame degrees, I won't fake it, I'm burning hot, burning burning hot, You're running because justice is afraid of the strong, Funny, I'm not afraid to be wrong, You just take it, You burn out, you can't compete, I just take it, My power and my strength creates heat, You're worried about hiding lies and who will know. You stand for nothin' and it shows, I won't fake it, I burn hot flame degrees, I won't fake it, I'm burning hot, burning burning hot, You're feeling the lies and now ask who's to blame? Truth and lies, they're both the same, You just take it, You can't fight, you can't defend, You just take it, You'll take abuse until the very end, You're worried about hiding lies and who will know. You stand for nothin' and it shows, I won't fake it, I burn hot flame degrees, I won't fake it, I'm burning hot, burning burning hot.
