Track Name: Jukai - One Life Not Wasted
The words still ringing in my ears
Walk the streets unable to feel
I’ve learned so much from your life
But it was snatched away and I still can’t hide
Myself from the fact that this world doesn’t care
About my struggles or the losses I bare
The virtuous get washed away
While the pieces of shit make it through unscathed.

When I ask myself
What does this world have left?
It’s full of ignorant humans
Who are better off dead
When I searched to find
What was left
All I found was selfishness
And disrespect

Build your martyr with someone else’s misery
shed crocodile tears to gain sympathy

Can’t escape the heart wrenching pain
And the lack of will to carry on
Motivation is dead when your heroes are gone

A virtuous man in his grave means more to the world than the scum who walk this earth today (One life not wasted)

For one more laugh and the warmth of your embrace I’d put a thousand useless lives in your place

A virtuous man in his grave means more to the world than the scum who walk this earth today (One life not wasted)
Track Name: Jukai - Incarcerate
The new world conquered by the elite
sword in hand, forced destiny
Look to the past, Our foundation rests
upon the blood soaked dirt and the bones of the oppressed
Push the myth of the American dream
Caste system created by Greed

One nation under the dollar sign and liberty for none.
There's no such thing as justice when it only works for some.
Centuries pass, cries go unheard. Our leaders deaf to this fucking world.
Deaf to this fucking world.

Man pinned against the next, feel the pull the strings,
Tension, hatred
and the violence it brings.

Early grave work guided by
the dying hand of fate
Feed the nation’s addiction
to incarcerate

Vultures Rape, appropriate
the culture of those they oppress.
Displace communities
and call it progress.

Benefiting at others expense
Crooked profit, Columbus effect.

Drown in ignorance.

Stand behind hateful rhetoric and fascist ideology
Instead of change, they'd rather see the strange fruit hanging from the tree.

Can't afford to take care of the poor
Beaten down and ignored
Victim blame, fail to recognize that
Not all bootstraps are the same length.

Broken lives
Beaten down
Cast aside
Choked to death as we watch our dreams die
World enslaved with no shame

Colorblind and ignorant
The cowards deny Their privilege that gets them further in life
Others Work harder to achieve the same
Oppressed by a system that refuses to change
Track Name: Jukai - Toll of Influence (2016)
The cost of sanity in society is solitude
sever ties

We make you believe
We own your culture
We own your freedom to choose

What is real

We have been telling you what to feel
your mind
from consuming all this trash
that's made from the bones
of a dying world.
Track Name: Recycled Earth - Search Party
In enemy territory. Writhing in pain. Cries in the dark. If you're lucky never be seen again. When the blip on the radar goes dark and the clouds cover the stars. Shit just doesn't slip through the cracks or through my hands. Behind my back. Time not promised. Grind you honest . Search party. Send the search party out. Seek the rogue motherfuckers out. Hunted by dogs. Writhing in pain. Cries in the dark. If you're lucky never to be seen again. When there is nowhere else to look we still search. A light in the dark.
Track Name: Recycled Earth - Plan of Salvation
Hard to be a god. Not honored with a human form. One path, told to kill. A gods eye view of all the shit and puke. Who has to die for who? You die for you. One hand washes the other in blood. Who will bless your actions and cradle you in their palm. Caress your fragile body until the storms calm. Will you be saved knowing you've done wrong? What's your plan of salvation? At the right hand of god. The hand that will crush you.
