INTRODUCTION TO DESTRUCTION Children of the beast embrace To scorn and hate the human race Consume the light that hugs the earth And aid the womb in giving birth To a group that will appear And guide you through this final year The dark armies then will come When the sum is 41 NOTHING ON MY BACK Was happiness a fad?

When every step I take is always too small Maybe itís just something I canít admit but lately I feel like I donít give a sh*t Motivation, such an aggravation Accusations, donít know how to take them Inspirationís getting hard to fake it Concentration, never hard to break it Situation, never what you want it to be Whatís the point of never making mistakes? Self-indulgence, such a hard habit to break Itís all just a waste of time in the end Donít care so why should I even pretend? Motivation, such an aggravation Accusations, donít know how to take them Inspirationís getting hard to fake it Concentration, never hard to break it Situation, never what you want it... Nothingís new (everythingís the same) It keeps on dragging me down (itís getting kinda lame) Iím falling further behind (thereís nothing to explain) No matter what you say, nothing's gonna change my mind Canít depend on doubt until the end It seems like leaving friends has become This years trend and though I canít pretend I play the game this way Itís not the same but whoís to blame For all those stupid things I never said?
