Track Name: No Difference
Different opinion
On a different side
But same mentality
Same narrow mind

You speak but you never listen
You proclaim you’re true but I see no difference
(From those you despise)

View everything as black and white
So quick to judge and generalize
Perpetuating more homogenized thought
This isn’t better it’s a facade

You’re still closed minded and blind
But you’re so convinced that you’re right
It doesn’t matter the words you say
It’s the actions that you take
It's not your beliefs or your label
The difference is in how you treat other people


Explanation
Words and labels do not define who you really are. You are defined by your actions. Just because you listen to bands or read articles that speak out against sexism, racism, classism, or LGBTQ phobias that you are absolved from committing oppressive or toxic behavior. Much of our mainstream culture is filled with oppressive and degrading qualities. These are often infused into counter culture. As punks, we try to learn and grow pass these mistakes but deconditioning is a struggle. Many of these behaviors have been ingrained in us from birth. If we are not willing to be reflective in our actions and look outside of our own experiences, we will suffer blindness and carry on the toxic cycles that we said we were against. Openness to criticism and self reflection is crucial to growth. Listen to those outside of yourself and experiences. Challenge these behaviors inside yourself and push to be better.
Track Name: Bag of Bones
I feel like a total mess today
I feel like a bag of bones wasting away
My headaches continue without cease
Burry it all on top of me

Exhausted I oversleep
Too tense to eat
Malnourished inside
Out of focus out of time

I push my means
Until I can't push anymore
Scraping by
on what I find on the floor

Struggling to make time
Living cheap but not alive
Track Name: Content With Discontent
Living in a state of discontent
Denying that I feel resent
Passively let life control me
Ending up where I don't wanna be
Time moves slow but the years go fast
I settle for less and trying to make it last
Clinging to a world I already know
Stagnating in my comfort zone

I fear ending up alone
In these narrow places I call home
As everyone else moves away
I continue to fester in the same place

I look at what’s left around me
Lack of passion and destructive routines but I need more
Than Content with discontent
Track Name: Overpower Overcome
Inside I start to go numb
Bitterness and spite starts to run
All this pressure clouds my mind
Repressed anger built up inside

Overpower Overcome

This tired cycle is caving in
I feel trapped from within
This way of life makes me mean
Turns me into someone I said I'd never be
I refuse to lose who I am
I refuse to be just another embittered cog
Track Name: Jefferson Crew
Small town hardcore is here and alive
Even if it’s a fight just to survive
Lack of opportunity and lack of support
We are overlooked we are ignored

Jefferson Crew
The crew is me!
The crew is you!
Jefferson Crew

What doesn’t exist we must create
It’s in our hands to make a change
This area is what you make it
This area is what we make it!

Jefferson Crew
The crew is me!
The crew is you!
Jefferson Crew
Track Name: Cut Out
With everything you’ve said
And you put me through
You bet I've got
Something personal against you

Your problems aren’t others mistakes
You point the finger, but you’re to blame

You're not what you seem
You hide and deceive
You're nothing but a user
Manipulative abuser

You ran me like a fool
But now I see right through you

Cut out
From my life
