Angry Lads 05:02
look at them weep in their sleep over despair you cannot delay for its a living nightmare going out of order going over the border giving the middle finger to destiny a bunch of suckers forever stuck in ether they will be crying out to the void cause theyre just so mad Angry Lads just a temporal crime trapped in here for a lifetime overwhelming fear resides cause theyre just so mad Angry Lads screaming for help it wont help cause theyre just screwed Bad Dudes in a pinch they cant help but lynch cause they are just rude it was against the rules the difference of a molecule can decide whether its the alpha timeline (or not) spewing obscenities making everyone around their enemies they cant help but just be Bad Dudes cause theyre just so mad Angry Lads they say its a hard life but its actually worse in hindsight crying over every spilled milk cause theyre just so mad Angry Lads "thought it was just a harmless prank moving through time for the bank but just one mistake can cause a heartbreak i reap what i sow but ill just say it isnt fair that prototyping, i wasnt even aware i like to say 'oh shucks, thats it then' but there are things i cant admit im an Angry Lad and a hypocrite" theyve calmed down now but somehow theyre still looking for a way out what fools they are cant they see the stars and realize what this is all about theyll start to whine thatll be the sign that they dont have much time left first the bard will kill the muse then the rest will follow suit (except for you) it wont be a pretty sight even at best it all comes tumbling down you can see when you look all around we yell as every hope diminish a lovely chord, but it doesnt help get rid of the cockroaches in another history they might have merged in victory and its not really YOUR fault that theyre all left (for dead) you are one sucker forever stuck in ether you will be crying out to the void cause youre just so sad Angry Lad "how did it come to this" fate favors the abyss maybe this was all meant to be so youre just so sad Angry Lad.

let me tell you the story of my journey it might sound a bit cocky but know that it is true i tell you, all the things i do are based on facts ive made a pact with the big man himself he is gone, alone, but that does not stop me from pulling all these flops, yell outta my brain from the Rain all to entertain that laughable thought that ought to say "THERES MORE TO THIS!" heres a news flash, act rash then you can get the cash youll be paid in fame, like me the same, and for you also the shame under all the acclaim, all can be fair game in love and war even so, dont even TRY to refute or refuse me, what do you think youre meant for wait, what? you dare deny my words the seven trumpets are heard, all the herds head onwards im the shepherd whom guides sheep to my paradise actualize and marginalize YOU CANT UNDERSTAND ME BUT YOU GET WHAT I AM SAYING, O(H) DIIIIIE FUCK DIIIIIE FUCK i cant say im sorry for all these outbursts after all, i was one of the first to stall the death of our little community dying from scarcity but with active immunity to all the haters whom later will regret the worst that they didnt stick around for the main event we'll pat ourselves on the back, chillrax and just vent but sometimes what we lack is a little bit of feedback or perhaps payback, attack all the people claiming i was wrong but look at my followers after all along ill prove to them with my swan song better to be laughed at than not belong in the end, you should just Look At Me, Look At Me it doesnt feel right they spat at me, ratted me the part where “they” did “that”, blah blah blah blah together we’re one single entity, forming this derivative identity DIIIIIE FUCK DIIIIIE FUCK i analysis dead things pull people's heart strings clinging on to this endless pit a paralysis of thoughts forms this criple knot i provide by every bit inside my blog i can do anything critically view catalogues and dialogues thats why ill never give up DIIIIIE FUCK DIIIIIE FUCK DIIIIIE FUCK DIIIIIE FUCK.

Meldey 05:39
what a mess, by the mass, i cant handle all the sass you might think im making fun, but hate to break it to you, son this whole albums based on a cruel but true story this is a cool and new hobby but you cant ignore the ugly parts- how it all starts is the passion of a foolish few nerds out of fashion, but not a single word got to them from the depths of hell, kingdoms Rose and fell all kings, queens, and Jack combined as cells ergo, they were Virgos, thats why they just rolled with it never sold with it, but formed an untold mold; An Unbreakable Union but it all fell apart, it all falls apart Oh Fuck, couldnt rehearse getting cucked by the universe one minute you were my friend, but the next minute we're competing for the end such a minute thing to obsess over, nothing to be upset over, only a minute till the access is over, but i cant help but be a set-over then i was running away, with that Original Content i made Discordant but i was still discontent what i needed were never some sense of elitism what i wanted were ever more attention for my schism it all Flows in the Rain, even Archagent so take it slow with the reign, its never ever THAT urgent holy fuck, with some luck, maybe even Homestuck could Flow along against the tides of time and versus the wides of the web, nothing is ever sacred so its only A-RIGHT to be scared but relax. then sit back for the climax theres no point to this; we’re all just fucking shitposters that dont mean we cant have our moment of pride but there're times to set that aside for some peace of mind just remember the fine ole days when all we cared about was to share about how your song was in the flash those weeks would fly by in a flash but after months it seems that we have lost that flash but its ALRIGHT keep fighting the fight cause its never Going Anywhere anyways, we knew it was too many there the lesson of this long diatribe of an album is that no tribes, in the end, seldom ever are eternal we werent fraternal, just strangers with a passion for the same disdain and it repeats once again as this beat ends with the Rain as you try to fight it, remember that some lies can be ALRIGHT to describe it in dead loan words: as long as respect is the why head onwards and dont fucking die.

oh, the Album is Ending now oh, the Album is Ending now oh, the Album is Ending now oh oh oh oh now that everythings over lets leave for outside (stuck at home, so lets roam) as you get older you will realize that theres no place you can hide we just Flow in the Rain to realize that is to stay sane even if things are pain, pain, PAIN you know they just repeat again Flow in the Rain Flow in the Rain Flow in the Rain Flow in the Rain oh, the Album is Ending now oh, the Album is Ending now oh, the Album is Ending now oh oh oh oh.

Me 04:47
stuck at home reading through signs but all You do is roam im over ditched to the sidelines fading, growing older (and older) which begs them the question "did x do y" i have no reaction i just sit and sigh gently tell a lie (You yourself, the opponent) pass by Me You glance by (only for a moment) letting go (even with the disappointment upon) living without (and life still goes on) just like so (The Circle repeats all again) i just gently Flow in the Rain.
