Mikey Moore This is gritty hardcore soaked with filthy rock and roll.

Track Name: Jagged
I borrowed time from a fleshless man
He said this space moves just like the sand
Go and lose yourself in your own mind
That’s just what I did
That’s just what I did
I’d do it again and I know why
It’s not evolution
In all this time I have never changed
I am still a reclusive ghost
That wandered here just yesterday.

I’ve got a place in my head
A tiny island ive made
A paradise of silence
I’m washing up in my shame
The grief that spoils the beauty of everything ive made
Desperate waters, battered shores
An age old bottle of anger I’ve grown to adore
I love the bitter twist on my tongue
The pulse it scores through my veins
Its this build up of scars
That blocks my pain
Where’s my paradise?
Have I washed away?
Track Name: Outcast
The atmosphere evaporates
Extracting fear through my face
As my nerve deteriorates,
Blood is drawn to the surface
In evanescent eyes
The pupil is morbid
Established judgement
Is like a natural contortion
Distorting the signs and
Infecting the conscience
ill by design,
is a sickening concept.
Ironic congregations (As we all do the same)
Like father, like son (Are we all to blame?)

You look down on me
In my pit of despair
I think to myself one day I’ll be up there

Outcast, Outlast (I don’t fucking need you)
Outcast, Outlast (We don’t fucking need you)
Track Name: Lustre
Eyes deep like ruby
As they burn right through me
And the shield of bone can only
Fend so long, so long my only
My enemy

She burns like propane
A lantern in the dark, she lights my way
The oxygen I breathe, it fuels desire
A bright red flame will take her place

Eyes deep like ruby
As they burn right through me
And the shield of bone can only
Fend so long, so long my only
My enemy

Worthless this stone,
In life and in death
Valued or not,
I have nothing left!
Track Name: Skeletal Grin
One more foot and I’m done
Digging eager, I’m stunned
I’ve etched my mark on a wooden case

Here lies another man,
Encroached in the earth and sand
I am beaten again, even to my own grave
Harmonious bones, with a skeletal grin
I don’t envy death or the place he is in

Nor the state I’m in

Empty, where I sorrow.
Decay, where I marrow.
If passion is purpose with that I’ll thrive .
Too not believe in life, is to pursue your own death
Track Name: Ramrod
Careless not thoughtless as I’m shaking his hand
Dedicated to the purpose of uniting the brand
A black tongue (Burnt out)
A firm stare that sustained
Blue knuckles grasping onto this wrench of pain
I’m still fucking twisting

A yellow belly, the machine continues to churn.
Holding seems futile
As I feel how it turns
It rattles,
It shakes
If I move I will break
A howling scream as it rises
I’m holding it down
Ruination is coming
Do you hear how it sounds?

Every evil intention
I see how it aches
Doom has a purpose
It’s an unrivalled hate
Track Name: Roaches
Revolution on my mind
It is going to take a long time
If you bow down here with praise in hand
You destroy hope for all this land

Those beneath him fear what he has in store
All his weath is stolemn from the honest and the poor
A deep trench deterrant, an obstacle of war.
This wicked motherfucker is who I’m looking for

HAIL! HAIL! HAIL! to the king
His power, his madness and all of his kin
HAIL! HAIL! HAIL! to the king
Step over horseman salvation is coming

Revolution on my mind
It is going to take a very very fucking long time

HAIL! HAIL! HAIL! to the king
His power, his madness and all of his kin
HAIL! HAIL! HAIL! to the king
Step over horseman salvation is coming
Track Name: D.S.H.C
We are coming on ten years living in this space
I have built a bunch of friends that I could never replace
But there’s a new look plastered all over the place
Disrespectful little bastards
And a bitter taste
You fucking “Hardcore Kids”
You don’t know fucking shit about this
You come to my show, in my face
And talking the trash
I tell you fucking what; Hard riff a’int nothing but thrash
I’ve got the right to be!
