Track Name: Control Yourself!
Control yourself!
You choose the choices you choose, the actions you make, the people you trust, the things which you take!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
You build the bridges you burn, the pathways which you walk, the postures you maintain, your emotional blocks!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
You write the roles that you play, the scripts you rehearse, every line that you say, every day!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
You choose what to make habit, the image you present, the way you carry yourself, ideologies you resent!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
You choose who to abuse, you choose who to be abused by, you decide what’s considered abuse!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
You decide what’s right and wrong, what’s real, what’s not, what’s “good” and what’s “bad”, what’s learned and what’s taught!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
You choose who you touch, who you love, who you hate, who you lust, who you fuck, who you suck!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
You are culpable for the choices you make, you have the agency to decide, the power is yours!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
You have power to consider, you have the power to forgive, you have the power to forget!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
You choose the actions you choose, the choices you make, the people you trust, the things which you take!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
You build the bridges you burn, the pathways which you walk, the postures you maintain, your emotional blocks!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
You write the roles that you play, the scripts you rehearse, every line that you say, every day!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
You choose what to make habit, the image you present, the way you carry yourself, ideologies you resent!
Control yourself!
Control yourself!
Track Name: Crabapples
Gather the crab-apples faster!
Do you want hit again? Do you?
Pile them up before your master!
Do you want hit again? Do you want it?

Pick up the crab-apples faster!
Do you want hit again? Do you?
Pile them up before your master!
Do you want hit again? Do you want it?

I'm gonna kill him!
I'm gonna throw sand in his eyes!
I'm gonna hurt him!
I'm gonna catch him by surprise!
I'm gonna hit him!
I'm gonna beat him 'til he cries, with a stick!
I'm gonna cut him!
I'm gonna peel off his disguise!
I'm gonna hold him down!
I'm gonna drown him in his lies!
I'm gonna spit on him!
I'm gonna make him realize!
I'm gonna kick him!
I'm gonna stomp him 'til he dies!
I'm gonna laugh at him!
I'm gonna be his demise!
Track Name: Take
If you want you can take some advice from me
You can't have everything you want and still be happy
Here's a lesson for all of those who haven't learned
It's hard to find a meaning in something you haven't earned
If you can make people feel bad to feel good
It definitely doesn't mean that you should
If you don't make anything people won't respect you
You may as well go stand at the end of the queue

All you do is take take take take
Get out of the way

Everything you desire will be out of your reach
And once you get it you won't even want it anymore
Everything that you used to stand for and to preach
Will be for sale on bumper stickers at the store
If you have anything at all your friends will become leeches
And they'll suck your blood from every single pore
So just listen to the lessons people try to teach
Try to take it in and pretend like it's not a chore

All you do is take take take take
Get out of the way
Track Name: Bad People
Everybody knows one
Just another good-for-nothing opportunist
Cardsharp with something up his sleeve
Just another prodigal thief

Everybody’s met one
Just another charlatan with grand delusions
Equivocating with his twisted tongue
Just another profligate bum

Everybody’s seen one
Just another masquerading devil
Conniving, chiseling scumbag
Just another miscreant scalawag

Everybody’s fucked one
Just another double-dealing racketeer
Artificial, story-telling fabulist
Just another crooked recidivist

Every action has potential consequences
And every choice has explicit intent
If your motives are driven by capital
You’re gonna live your life discontent

Every means of deceit can be uncovered
And every lie’s cutting corners of consent
If you think that you can have your cake and eat it too
The “truth” will end up being your lament

Now how’re you supposed to “cry wolf”?
When all of the wolves are dressed up like sheep?
And how’re you supposed to “make good”?
When you can barely make the ends meet?

Now how’re you supposed to “save face”?
When the damage has already been done?
And how’re you supposed to save grace?
When Pandora ruined that for everyone?

Now you can try coercion
Manipulation and blackmailing too
You can take advantage of the people
Whom you consider closest to you

Now you can try deception
Live your life in an underhanded way
You can get everything that you want
You just have to believe the lies that you say

Every action has potential consequences
And every choice has explicit intent
If your motives are driven by capital
You’re gonna live your life discontent

Every means of deceit can be uncovered
And every lie’s cutting corners of consent
If you think that you can have your cake and eat it too
The “truth” will end up being your lament

Every action has potential consequences
And every choice has explicit intent
If your motives are driven by capital
You’re gonna live your life discontent

Every means of deceit can be uncovered
And every lie’s cutting corners of consent
If you think that you can have your cake and eat it too
The “truth” will end up being your damn lament
