Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Roots Bloody Roots (3:32)
Roots Bloody Roots
Roots Bloody Roots
Roots Bloody Roots
Roots Bloody Roots

I
Believe In Our Fate
We Don't Need To Fake
It's All We Wanna Be
Watch Me Freeeaaak !!

I Say
We're Growing Every Day
Getting Stronger In Every Way
I'll Take You To A Place
Where We Shall Find Our

Roots Bloody Roots
Roots Bloody Roots
Roots Bloody Roots
Roots Bloody Roots

Rain
Bring Me The Strength
Is Breeding Me This Way
To Get To Another Day
And All I Want To See
Set Us Free

Why
Can't You See
Can't You Feel
This Is Real
Ahhh

I Pray
We Don't Need To Change
Our Ways To Be Saved
That All We Wanna Be
Watch Us Freak
2. Attitude (4:15)
One Week Of Struggling
On The Real World Is..
So You Can See !!!

Feel Your Soul And...
Shape Your Mind To Warfare
It's All For Real

Live Your Life
Not The Way They Taught You
Do What You Feel !

Survive The Jungle
Give Me Blood
Give Me Pain
These Scars Won't Heal

What Were You Thinking
What A Wonderful World !!!
You're Full Of Shit

Leave It Behind
They Don't Care If You Cry
All Is Left Is Pain

Can You Take It ?
Can You Take It ?
Can You Take It ?
Can You Take It ?

The Only Way
To Get Away
Kill Your Pride
Attitude

I Won't Take It
I Won't Take It
I Won't Take It
I Won't Take It

So In The End
I Want To See Some Respect
( I Said )
You Better Show Some Respect
( I Said )
Attitude And Respect
3. Cut-Throat (2:44)
Telling Lies Right Into Your Face
Grab Your Soul And Make A Disgrace
Make You Believe You're Bigger Than Life
No One Cares If You'll Live Or Die

Waiting For The Moment To Strike
To Take Possession To Take Your Heart
Turn Your Part Into A Farse
Without Respect, Without Regret

Cut-Throat - Cut-Throat
Cut-Throat
Cut-Throat - Cut-Throat
Cut-Throat

You Promess This And Promise All
Deep Inside Nothing At All
In A War Of Filth And Greed
We Don't Need None Of This Shit

All I Say That Will Survive
We Know What's True, We Know What's Right
We're Going Through This Till The End
And I Know You're Not My Friend

Cut-Throat - Cut-Throat
Cut-Throat
Cut-Throat - Cut-Throat
Cut-Throat
Fuck !

To Give In - No Fucking Way
To Give In - No Way

So Don't Tell Us It Can't Be Done
Putting Down What You Don't Know
Money Isn't Our God
Integrity Will Free Our Soul

Enslavement Pathetic
Ignorant Corporations

Cut-Throat - Cut-Throat
Cut-Throat
Cut-Throat - Cut-Throat
Cut-Throat

6. Straighthate (5:21)
I Ask Myself Why I'm So Hateful
Perhaps It's Just Part Of My Nature
People Say I'm Fucked It In My Mind
Feels Like There's Nothing Left Inside

Walking Now On Different Dirty Street
But The Same Old Feeling Still Exists
Hate Is Like A Shade That Won't Never Leave
Leave Me Alone I Don't Need Sympathy

What Goes Around
Comes Around
You Going Down
Down

Straighthate - Straighthate
Straighthate - Straighthate

Criticize And Call Me Negative
But You Never Deal With Life Or Reality
I Separate Myself From The Rest
What Da Fuck You Expect ?

What Goes Around
Comes Around
You Going Down
Down

Straighthate - Straighthate
Straighthate - Straighthate
Straight Fucking Hate

Grow Up In The Ghettos
Made Me Real
To Deal With My Fears
Muthafucker You Don't Understand
Pain And Hate
7. Spit (2:45)
Hate Them Hate Them
Live Your Farse
Same Thing, Same Way
Your Karma Will Come

Ask Me No Questions
I Tell No Lies
Ask Me Again
I Spit In Your Eyes

Live Your Life
Leave Me Alone !!!
Live Your Life
Leave Me Alone !!!

Face Me, Face Me
Feel The Cut
Open Sore
Always Bleeding

Live Your Life
Leave Me Alone !!!
Live Your Life
Leave Me Alone !!!

Spit !!
Spit !!
Spit !!
Spit !!
8. Lookaway (5:25)
Each Time I Pull It Apart
I Get Disgusted, Can't Do It Today
What Makes It So Good
That A Man Would Kill For It
Lie Just To Lick A Bit

Each Time I Pull It Apart
I Get Disgusted, Can't Do It Today
What Makes It So Good
To Lie Just To Lick

Fake It, You Like It, Just Take Me Away.
hold It, Just Save It And I'll Be Repaid

Each Time I Pull It Apart
I Get Disgusted, Can't Do It Today
What Makes It So Good
That A Man Would Kill For It
To Lie Just To Lick A Bit

Each Time I Pull It Apart
I Get Disgusted, Can't Do It Today
What Makes It So Good
To Lie, To Lick

Take It, Enlarge It, Became It, Before
Like It, I Like It, And I'll Be Repaiiid

Fake It, Then Like It, Just Take It Tonight.
Take It

I Look At You, [Then] You Look At Me, [Then] You Look Away... (x14)
9. Dusted (4:03)
You Make Me Mute
Hiding The Truth
Revealing A Farse
Created By Your Mind

What Do You Expect
Exposing Your Lies
Printed In Your Eyes
There's No Alibi

To Cooperate And Not Be Allowed
They're Killing My Name / Sewing My Mouth

Prospect In Life
Lost In The Line
To Cooperate
And Just Be Alive

You Gonna Fall Hiding The Truth
You Gonna Crawl Finding The Truth
To Blame Myself It's My Disgrace
To Blame The World By My Mistakes

Dusted ( 3x )

Turn Around And Turning Around
And Turning Around And Inside Out
Turn Around And Turning Around

Hiding The Truth
Revealing A Farce
Created By Your Mind

What Do You Expect
Exposing Your Lies
Printed In Your Eyes
There's No Alibi

You Gonna Fall Hiding The Truth
You Gonna Crawl Finding The Truth
To Blame Myself It's My Disgrace
To Blame The World By My Mistakes

10. Born Stubborn (4:07)
Stubborn From The Start
Obey No One No Matter What ?!
Our Life It's Our Right
Why Don't You Go Away

We Live Without Orders
We Live Without Rules
Tearing Down The Wall
That Try To Hold Us In

Born In Pain
Born Stubborn

I Got My Tribe It's My Own Right
And I Don't Have To Tell You Why
It's Been Like That From The Start
And You Can't Break It Apart
Sepultura In Our Hearts
Can't Take It Away
These Roots Will Always Remain

Born In Pain
