Track Name: Born 2 Lose
Chances are you don't know what it's like
To walk a mile in our shoes, So please don't judge my life
I worked all fucking day, so let's hang all night
I will go anywhere and I won't give up this fight

Maybe I was born to lose
So I'll keep taking hits
we'll never live like you
we'll never give a shit

You don't wanna have to try, you can't handle the truth
And so you run and hide just like they always do
This is my life now, Try and understand
We don't really give a fuck if we weren't part of your plan

Maybe I was born to lose
So I'll keep taking hits
we'll never live like you
we'll never give a shit

They wanna knock us down
But we stand right back up
Wanna knock us down but we stand back up
They wanna lock us out
But we kick right back in
Wanna lock us out, we kick our way back in

Maybe I was born to lose
So I'll keep taking hits
we'll never live like you
we'll never give a shit
Track Name: The Pressure
Where did you go when we needed you the most
Where the fuck were you when it all came pouring down on us
Life beat my ass, but here I am still standing
Hold your head up high, show class, there's no use in complaining

Everyone wants to play the victim these days
He knows its just a cop out anyway
He felt the pressure, but he never cracked
He felt the pressure, but he never cracked

So tell me more about what you think it means to suffer
You've got a lot to say for someone with nothing to offer
Save your crying shit for some other damn fool
You wanna take advantage and you wonder why
We lost our fucking cool

Everyone wants to play the victim these days
He knows its just a cop out anyway
He felt the pressure, but he never cracked
He felt the pressure, but he never cracked

He Never Cracked

So tell me how you sleep at night
Because it's not alright
Track Name: Nation In The Dark
I see you looking down on me
You probably think you're better than me
You don't know what the fuck i'm about
Or what I think it means to be free
You're the one walking around
With no clue what's going on
Sleep-walking your way through life
In a world gone wrong

That's just the way it seems to me
All the things you claim, are more than words to me
Little do you know the truth can set you free

Set you free

You believe everything you see
Or that you read
You trust every thing they do
The difference between you and me

That's just the way it seems to me
All the things you claim, are more than words to me
Little do you know the truth can set you free

Set you free
Or make you go insane
