Track Name: Destroy Babylon
War.
Fuck your compromise with a half life of indulgence
Fuck your shaking hands dripping blood and disgrace
Peace is the inspiration of my struggle
Though war is the only state of mind I know
Every image of exploitation
Every image of exploitation is my war
I want to step onto a higher level of consciousness and declare open war against those who still rape Mother Nature
Use your third eye and do believe those towers of filth can be destroyed one more time.
Read and educate yourself, embrace arms as talk has failed us to bring their liberation.
This is what we used to scream out loud
Now you believe in violence
Well I do too, yours is against Nature
Mine is against you
Direct action is the only weapon we have to accomplish our goals.
I still swear allegiance to self, human, earth and animal liberation
That's why I want to destroy
That's why I want to destroy Babylon
Destroy Babylon, now.
Track Name: Silent Eyes
If you are too deaf to hear this heart felt message
Then you should fade away just like dinosaurs did
You should all suffocate as your life gives abortion the only option for me to tolerate
I am blinded by rage against the rage your kind has for so long pressed within.

Animal suffering must end
Animal suffering must end
Silent eyes still search for vengeance
The game is over
Billions of lives are taken
No revolution without a bloodshed
There's no time allowed for those who overshadow animals freedom.
Plates run blood
Labs run blood
Streets run blood
Forget compassion
Plates run blood
Labs run blood
Streets run blood
Forget compassion in times of war...
Veganism is our path to freedom
Veganism equals justice for all life
Shall I walk the hard-line deeper than ever
Shall I raise my guns and laugh watching you fall
I'll slaughter ur kids, electrocute 'em, cut their throat
Then wait for you to swallow their corrupted flesh
Vegan
The only path to higher justice
Vegan
It's a war that we must fight
Vegan
The only path to higher justice
Vegan
It's a war that we must fight
Track Name: By The Knife
I am living by the knife
Straight edge
We are living by the knife
Straight edge
Fuck all those who cheapen what I truly am in others eyes (taken by No Allegiance - Earth Crisis)
Fuck those who bent the straight edge with their fuckin' lies
My heart is free
My life is on the war path
My pain my struggle my hostility will see no end till we are all set free.
I am for justice, no matter who it is for
One stone one gun one struggle, assassination for all drug-lords
Your world is under threat,
Your profit will be slaughtered by the hatred of your own slaves
From Colombia to teenage night fever, I wage war on your glorified blindfolded whore
May I see your blood crimes end
Liberation for all those who still fall prey
Death to all these zombies around me
Militant against the unashamed
Burn-burn-burn
I am living by the knife
Straight edge
We are living by the knife
Straight edge
Track Name: Diamonds Are Not Forever
I have too much repulsion in my thoughts
Diamonds are not forever
Modern slaves born out of centuries of infamy
West Africa still faces slavery
Natives in every corner of the globe faced genocide
White men always brought intellectual homicide
Culture fed with generations of orphanage houses
Assimilation culture through selection of skin color
Stolen children, stolen history, stolen culture
Children sold and tattooed for ownership Genocide
Prostitution ships of desperation Genocide
Diamonds in Ivory coast, Oil in Nigeria north barrier Genocide
I wish death for all of you demon motherfuckers Genocide
Burn them down as I spit on their grave
Bullets are the only language these devils speak
There's no more fucking tolerance for those who worship holocaust
No one will miss them if we take their life
Arm yourself, kill every angel of death
You are the only warrior you must fall back on
Turn this nightmare into a dream
Turn this nightmare into a dream
Turn this nightmare into a dream
Turn this nightmare into a dream
Track Name: Militant Life
Traitors
Your blood will flow before my eyes
Traitors
Its still me, against the rain, wind and fire,
32years old still speaking the truth
Fear your own shadow you evil motherfuckers...
I follow my own truth, the sacred course of my existence
Raised in the name of the nameless
I am here to fight and dance among them
You deserve disrespect, humiliation and death
You spit on the flag you once held high.
I'll carve a deep black X on your back to punish your lies
You spit on the flag you once held high.
I'll carve a deep black X on your back to end your lies
Rancor drives me through dark times of desperation
I'll keep self control and like a warrior I'll attack this foreign land of mindless zombies
You choose betrayal
I ll live and die by a militant life
My X will never fade
Militant
My X will never fade
Militant life
Track Name: Declaration Of War (Green Rage Tribute)
Declaration of War, Injustice fuels the hate. You evil makes you weak, your evil is my strength
Declaration of War, Injustice fuels the hate. You evil makes you weak, your evil is my strength
(Taken by Green Rage 7 inch)
Track Name: They Are A Cancer
From Nicaragua to Palestina, from Nigeria to China. Whose opinion are we buying into?
Modern democracies build well concealed concentration camps
Burn the shame of their empire.
Cheap labor sending troops to war
One hand makes a whole nation choke on debt made through plantations of coke and opius
I am the messenger to speak truth against their greedy eyes
Censorship builds your notions
True knowledge is still neglected
I am the prophet trying to spark fire throughout my journey
They are a cancer to this planet
Military chronicles, death upon death of black and latino brothers and sisters
We need a revolution now more than ever
Revolutionize your habits
Revolutionize your life
Give hopes to the ones after you and honour the ones who died before you.
Emancipation liberation we are the vanguard of this war
Emancipation liberation we are the vanguard of this war
Emancipation liberation we are the vanguard of this war
Track Name: Threat Of Overcome
Freedom
Fuck mainstream propaganda, rebuild your knowledge
Culture feeds every single breath of my disgust
My life's a battle on a day by day warfare
You can't burn the roots of Gods sacred tree of wisdom
Conspiracies of white elite have built nations based on infamy and misconceptions
Don't be passive like the church during the holocaust.
Question your certainties.
Question your truth,
Every time, every day.
Elevate your spirit high, breath and look within
You are a warrior, a spiritual samurai
Don't give anyone the power to take away your freedom
You are the master, no longer slave
Chains of ignorance and poverty keep your ankles trapped
To them, you must be their worst enemy
They must feel the threat of overcome
Freedom, freedom, freedom, freedom
Freedom
Freedom lies within
Freedom
Our truth has been revealed
Freedom
Freedom lies within
They must fear you
Track Name: Outro - Death To All Traitors
We are not here to make friends. We are here to make justice. We are not here to look
Good or sound good, we are here to voice our opinion, to give freedom to the enslaved and
Declare war, again and again and again against the unashamed. We grew up in a scene of
Middle class white kids who never knew and will never know nothing about violence, kids
Who still live in a well concealed world made only of hard music, tough looks and tough
Images. Fuck you. Fuck your web hatred, your myspace fights and ur shallow values. This
Is the forth generation of kids that I see turning their back on me and just fall into confort
And social acceptance.We give no trust for free anymore. People once swore eternal jihad
And all out war to oppression and injustice but here they come, in their weakest, mild,
Submissive and yet arrogant lifestyle to just represent everything I hate. Where the fuck
Are all these mindless zombie motherfuckers now? I hold these people in contempt.
People with no self respect should suffocate. People who turn their back on the struggle
For human and animal liberation should suffocate. All the sellouts who once held high flags
Should suffocate. People who just can't see how negative their influence is on the youth
And our environment should all suffocate. We have the power of starting a very wild
Domino effect. We have to be the living examples that compassion and justice can still
Have a strong voice against Mother Culture. I don't care if you see violence. I don't care if
You see radical visions. Every other try has failed. As warriors before us stated: get free or
Die trying.
Track Name: Bonus - Vegan Straight Edge Saved My Life
Vegan straight edge saved my life.
I survived addiction
I rejected all their poison lies
Fuck the parassites who keep on fading across my path
My hope and strength unbroken as I still witness
Sheep will always be sheep...
Behind my never ending struggle,
Beyond my never ending struggle,
Lies nothing but deep love...
For the animals, for all slaves, for the blinded, for the brainwashed
For all deaf screams, for all deaf tears, for all racist crimes, for all sexist lies
This struggle means everything to me
I am Geronimo,
Fighting for my freedom.
I am Malcolm,
Fighting for my freedom.
I am Peltier
Fighting for my freedom
I am Barry Horne,
Fighting for their freedom.
Resistance is my answer
I am tired of revolutions bought on sale
Vegan straight edge saved my life
