Track Name: Lie Sense
Power corrupts and money talks
That's what you seem to think
Now on the day of reckoning
We'll put you on the brink

How fucking hard is it for you to say
what you mean and mean what you say
There's a price for all the things
high enough you've done your way

Trust long gone lines been cut
Choices made wrong so shut the fuck up
What's the use saying this now
What goes around comes back around

How fucking hard is it for you to say
what you mean and mean what you say
There's a price for all the things
high enough you've done your way
Track Name: My League
You say I'm twenty something and I should be slacking
Well I usually am so you can keep on nagging
Ain't trying to be nice when I write these lines
Nothing to find here, no sense or advice
'Cuz Watch Your is Back with another bad track
No way around this cul-de-sac
It's quantity over quality and speed over harmony
At least we're making records with more than five songs

Don't need your crew don't need your friends
Don't need your band don't need your trends
Need no support I am my scene
Play in my own league like James Dean

Keep it tough and keep it raw
Although this shit won't get us far
Violent rhymes and weird drum fills
Ain't got mad skills but our speed thrills

Won't play well but won't play slow
Jumping around not losing my flow
Keeping it fast as I wish you would
Writing these songs you wish you could
Take a stand
Start a band
Save the scene
I don't fucking care
Track Name: Physical Justice
Fighting is easy killing is too
Especially when it comes to you
It wasn't me who started this shit
No backing down here's my fucking fist
It doesn't end until it's done
Now tell me did you have your fun
Face smashed in teeth knocked ou
No help when you scream and shout
Track Name: Have Some Hate
Alienated from everything I see
And too stubborn to even care
Too late to start too early to finish
Fuck forever I am done

Unity seems like a waste of breath
When it means dealing with you and I don't want that
What's this life but a hateful ride
So count your prayers and say goodbye
Track Name: Wreck of a Man
Feels like my head is bursting
Puking my guts out insides turned over
Confusion hate disappointment and depression
Hard to hold it inside leaves me in aggression

Find myself asking
the wrong fucking question
Jump, rope or gun
It's not the right answer
To get over
Over this shit
Turn my back
It's the only way

What makes it worse don't even know a reason
This has to end or turn into something better
Can't forget can't make it go away
Shit is turning me insane
Track Name: Cast Iron Arm
Running long hours away from here
Ego's writing checks - the blinding light
Never mind the pain - forget yourself
Do anything just to degenerate

Pray for heaven - end to hell
This is point A - next up point blank

Fast kicks cheap thrills - cast iron arm
Never know what it kills - cast iron arm

Never mind the pain - forget yourself
Do anything just to degenerate

Fast kicks cheap thrills - cast iron arm
Never know what it kills - cast iron arm

Never mind the pain - always the same
Lose yourself - here we go again

Fast kicks cheap thrills - cast iron arm
Never know what it kills - cast iron arm
Track Name: Walk Through Fire
Shine on your day before the last
one drop of fuel for the things you cast
aside you will meet does not scare
crashing or landing I don't care

In this state of soul no light tends to shine
because it feels like walking through fire

Being put into test or laid to rest
same difference everywhere
this reality is here to fucking stay
crashing or landing I don't care

In this state of soul no light tends to shine
because it feels like walking through fire
Track Name: Infiltration
Right here we are in the realization
Of our worst fears failure tradition
Into the deepest end illusion in reverse
Screaming one hostile turning into dust

Going down never to be seen again
This time not to move on this hollow ground
You're gonna fuck it all up
Just like you always do

Bleeding in for days on end
Started something you could not mend
Your excuses they don't match
Appears to be just lines on the sand

Justify this meaning to pound the earth
All along your life for what's it worth
Don't ask don't tell not looking one's face
Are the reasons we fell so out of place
Track Name: Testing Sanity
Feeling the walls closing in
Seeing the sky painted red
Dreaming about an illusion of war
Waking up real fucking sore

Was there something I missed
Or just a waste of time
Start with nothing end with less
Cannot make up my mind

Lose all confidence
What was left of it
Diving into a bottle
Or hanging from a rope

Was there something I missed
Or just a waste of time
Start with nothing end with less
Cannot make up my mind
Track Name: Useless
Watching the world fall down its knees, brought down by idiots and endless greed
Consuming like mad men never learning a thing, another disaster we're all involved in

Still everyone's acting like life's a commercial not understanding that a change is now crucial
Leading unsound lives brings unstable times - fucked up lives - desperate cries

This doesn't mean that you assholes are right idealism leads to a pointless fight
Well equal distribution just won't work ´cuz I need more than a new age jerk
And I'm glad I'm not Gorbachev ´cuz he didn't get enough props for doing a good job
Controlling lives brings monstrous times - passive lives - unheard cries

So what'cha gonna say that I don't know already it's not like I don't know the situation ain't steady
So shut the fuck up and live your life don't need your advice to carry on with mine
Track Name: Any Last Words?
Pushing me to the edge just couldn't give a rest
Was it worth it time well spent?
Thoughts drifting apart lost grip from the start
This so called life only passes me by

Bag of lies fistful of truth
Same old shit there's nothing new
Look into my eyes what do you see
Misery and pain wasn't used to be

Blindess comes in many forms
All I see is closed doors
How can you back down
When you're against the wall
Thoughts drifting apart lost grip from the start
This so called life only passes me by
Track Name: Arson
In the pitch black night
Walking on dead ground
It's the same old fight
Always revenge bound
Fall in line or fall from grace
Makes no difference it's all the same

Feel the heat see the flames
Set this world ablaze
Panic and fear they shall face
We'll see them in a maze

This is not about getting even
No use to shout unlucky number seven
Seconds till you realize it wasn't all true
You saw it in her eyes so tempting yet cruel

Feel the heat see the flames
Set this world ablaze
Panic and fear they shall face
We'll see them in a maze
Track Name: Watch Your Back
This is for the friends that stand by my side
If I had none would I still be alive
In this shit world there's nothing worse than being alone
Everything's fucked up but there's always hope
So head up mind straight never lose your faith
Life's a fucking mess we'll always have our hate
Stick together no matter what right
Fuck with us there's gonna be a fight

Full blast at last motherfuckers die fast
Watch Your Back - hardcore
We do our thing - nothing more
You got my back I got yours
That's why we stand tall - that's what friends are for
Full blast at last motherfuckers die fast
Watch Your Back - hardcore
We do our thing - nothing more
This is the track and this is for you
We stand our ground - that's what we do

Good times make the hard times better
There's nothing we can't overcome together
Let's finish the night the Finnish way
Drink, smoke, fight, puke - tomorrow's a new day
