Track Name: History 101
Who are you to talk down to me?
I thought we made that history
You're better than no one, when will you see
Don't pull that shit on me.

It's just a game you play and we're not playing
We're changing it 'cause we're not havin' it.
It's just a game you play and we're not playing
We're changing it 'cause we're not havin' it.

Who are you to talk down to me?

You're better than no one, when will you see
Don't pull that shit on me

It's just a game you play and we're not playing
We're changing it 'cause we're not havin' it
It's just a game you play and we're not playing
We're changing it 'cause we're not havin' it
Track Name: Break a Sweat
You think everything comes easy, and things should be free
That is the exact opposite of me
If I don't break a sweat, than I am not pleased
Every favor I do I expect returned to me.

110% everyday, anything less, nah no fucking way
I'm pushing hard, but it takes time
Always looking out for mine!

You think everything comes easy, and things should be free
That is the exact opposite of me
If I don't break a sweat, than I am not pleased
Every favor I do I expect returned to me
Track Name: Growing Pains
It seems like everyone is growing up,
I'm the only one staying the same
No one took this shit for real, fucking pussies changed
I honestly hate the average man, his life is shit to me
Walkin' in line with everyone else, somethin' not for me
The one thing we have in common, we hate their fucking world
Braindead zombies doin' what they're told
1, 2...
Track Name: Get an Oxygen Tank
I see the way you act, your attitudes no good
Something's not right check under the hood
Something broke, its' the way that you think
A chain is just as strong as its weakest link
I just hope that you shape up
My radar's got you on it and its blowin' up
Telling me something just ain't right
With fools like you, how can we keep this tight?
I wanna keep this close, want to unite!
I wanna keep this flame burning bright
You talk like you know, but you don't know shit!
Take a look, this is as real as it gets!
A bad name you give to everything we do
Mental crew, sick of you!
You try and be different, but its nothin' new
Mental crew, sick of you!
This doesn't mean a goddamn thing to you
Mental crew, sick of you!
Been told to get lost, told to get active
Mental crew, sick of you!
Track Name: Chiller Than Most (Still Mental)
Chiller than most!
Been our plan from day one
Giving this our hearts and doing out best to get it done
No regrets or apologies for anything we say
Justify ourselves to you, no fucking way!

People change and that's ok,
That's just how life goes
Either way we're still Mental,
Still chiller than most
When life is throwing shit at me and things seem insane
My friends stick their necks out 'cause they know I'd do the same.
Track Name: Respect
They drop like flies but i think its all good
As time goes by, I will knock on wood
'Cause I have more faith than you will ever know
And I can respect whichever way that you go
Some are here for good and some will break
But I'll always respect the path you take
You call it a label, there is nothing wrong with pride
I'm trusting my heart to tell me what's right
It's not about preaching to hear yourself talk
It's about keeping your cool to shrug the pressure off!
Track Name: And You Know This
Real friends are hard to find
Someone that will be there when you're losin your mind
Fake friends and the smiles they wear
They act like they do but they don't fucking care

I don't know how
You can shake my hand
How can you be my brother?
You're not even a man

I don't think you know the fucking meaning of friend
When I'm down you've three hands to lend
There for the good, there for the bad
The one thing that keeps me from goin mad
Sometimes I just need somebody to talk to
Someone that I trust, that's when you say "Yo! I got you!"
Sometimes I wanna give up, cause life can get bogus
That's why I got friends and you fucking know this
I don't have to explain, you know the the fucking deal
You're like a fucking brother, won't lie, cheat, or steal

To those who go behind my back, and sneak around
I'll turn that smile into a fuckin frown
Why is it so hard to say how you feel
My true brothers know how to be real
Track Name: Mental
Play fucking hard, get to the point
We're fucking Mental, lets move this joint!
No bullshit, no fucking around
We're fucking Mental, never slowdown!
To all the shit talkers get a load of this
We're fucking Mental, don't try and diss!
If you think this is dumb we're just getting started
We're fucking Mental, we might be retarded!
Track Name: K.O.A.S.
Balance two lives I can't even do one
It's all wasted time when its fucking done!
I don't need the chains, I don't need the pains
You can cut my strings, and all the trouble that it brings

Say that you're happy, try and deny
When things get fucked you say you'll get by
Ease up man! I'm just trying to help
You're living in hell, I trying to break you out!
Track Name: Sike
What is this shit, you're fucking bumming me out
I think you forgot what hardcore is about
Actin' fucking hard, you're not better than me
You forgot about straight edge and unity!
You say this shit is about having fun
You take it too seriously to get the job done
You fucking change just like the weather
Maybe someday you'll fucking change for the better

What is this shit, you're fucking bumming me out
I think you forgot what hardcore is about
Actin' fucking hard, you're not better than me
You forgot about straight edge and unity!
You say this shit is about having fun
You take it too seriously to get the job done
You fucking change just like the weather
Maybe someday you'll fucking change for the better

SIKE!
Track Name: Bounce Back
Knock me down, take me under
But your cry will be as loud as thunder
'Cause I'll bounce back, land on my feet
Try and try, you ain't got shit on me
Track Name: Rewind
Sometimes I get wrapped up in thinking way too long
Have I made the right choice?
How many times have I been wrong?
Thats no way to think
Thats no way to be
If there is one thing I should believe in that one thing should be me

I've fucked up so many times
Boy I'd like to hit rewind
You can say its not easy, you can say its not fair
I'll never let it happen again I swear

Twenty years of my life gone, and what I have learned?
I can't get back the time I waste
I cant get back the time I burn
We learned from my mistakes, I've learned from my regrets
Can't be down any longer, but I'll never forget

I've fucked up so many times
Boy I'd like to hit rewind
You can say its not easy, you can say its not fair
I'll never let it happen again I swear
Track Name: DFJ's Diary
When I was younger, I knew I'd never “give in”
No matter who fell, I'd be the fuckin exception
An arrogant little prick who knew nothing at all
My head up my ass, I thought I stood so tall

I know that this is fucked, but my feelings are strong
I've gotta fight for my will before it's completely gone
I know that this is fucked, but my feelings are strong
I've gotta fight for my will before it's completely gone

But now I'm doubting all that I am
Everything's changed but my beliefs stay the same
I'm no longer inspired by the reasons why
And I feel like I'm gonna die

I know that this is fucked, but my feelings are strong
I've gotta fight for my will before it's completely gone
I know that this is fucked, but my feelings are strong
I've gotta fight for my will before it's completely gone
Track Name: Idiotic
I know that I'm trapped in such a shallow space
I change and change and change, but I'm not going any place
I know that I'm trapped in such a shallow space
I change and change and change, but I'm not going any place

I'm a fucking idiot (I'm a fucking idiot), 'cause I won't let go
I'm a fucking idiot (I'm a fucking idiot), gotta break this strangle hold
I'm a fucking idiot (I'm a fucking idiot), 'cause I won't let go
I'm a fucking idiot (I'm a fucking idiot), gotta break this strangle hold

Existing just for me, living just for you
That just makes so much sense, maybe to a retarded few
Existing just for me, living just for you
That just makes so much sense, maybe to a retarded few

I'm a fucking idiot (I'm a fucking idiot), 'cause I won't let go
I'm a fucking idiot (I'm a fucking idiot), gotta break this strangle hold

I'm a fucking idiot
Track Name: Fuck This
I hit a fork in the road everyday
No fucking idea which is the right way
Sick of feelin' insecure
Are my decisions worth living for?

I doubt myself, I question myself
Is this worth my time?
Am I driving off a cliff?
Or will I be fine?

Where the hell is life takin' me?
Well, I gotta enjoy the ride
I gotta keep my head up
or I'll go in with the tide
Where the hell is life takin' me?
Well, I gotta enjoy the ride
I gotta keep my head up
or I'll go in with the tide
Get down!
