Track Name: Accepting Defeat
There was a time
We took on the world side by side
It brought us down
But we were fucking weird and proud
These last four years
Have made a few things clear
I think we were right
You think we should just adhere

Cause you're accepting defeat
Accepting defeat
Fall in line
Accepting defeat
Assuming that we were wrong
The whole time
Well I won't go back
To the misery
But what we stood for
Still stands true to me
So fuck defeat
Feed your mind

There was a time
We knew to push the scum aside
I catch a scene
When I fall into a blue dream
I sit here now
And ask myself "How?"
You left the screen
I guess we're all just too obscene
Track Name: Stop! Let's Get Frisky
I've got a fetish
I find hard to conceal
I see a black kid
And I wanna cop a feel
Some people call it
A sexual assault
But I've got my gun and badge
So it is not my fault

Stop! Let's get frisky.
Stop! Let's get frisky.
Stop! Let's get frisky.
Stop! Let's get frisky.

I will
Bring you to your knees
Cause I can molest and arrest
Anyone I please
Track Name: Incite
With our heads held high
We make our demands
Agitate the elite
Red and black flags in hand
As we break their foundation
Diverge at the crease
They send out their gang
Who disrupts us from keeping the peace

When we're confronted by the
Police line!
The assault on our rights
To silence our fight
To silence our fight
To silence our fight
While we're flooded by the
Police line!
Trading bite after bite
We push forward in spite
You can't silence our fight
Cause we keep our world in sight

Choke our words out with pepper spray
Praying to their god that we won't have a say
Cornered between the wealth and the pigs
It's in these moments you realize the system is rigged.

When you're confronted by the...
