Lyrics: [toggle title=”1. Mouth For War”]Revenge I’m screaming revenge again Wrong I’ve been wrong for far too long Been constantly so frustrated I’ve moved mountains with less When I channel my hate to productive I don’t find it hard to impress

[Pre] Bones in traction Hands break to hone raw energy Bold and disastrous My ears can’t hear what you say to me

[Chorus] Hold your mouth for the war Use it for what it’s for Speak the truth about me Determined

Possessed I feel a conquering will down inside me Strength The strength of many to crush Who might stop me My strength is in number And my soul lies in every one The releasing of anger can better any medicine under the sun



There comes a time within everyone to close your eyes to what’s real No comprehension to fail I vacuum the wind for my sail Can’t be the rest Let others waste my time Owning success is the bottom line. Like a knife into flesh After life is to death Pulling and punching the rest of duration NO ONE can piss on this determination[/toggle] [toggle title=”2. A New Level”]Now a new look in my eyes my spirit rise Forget the past Present tense works and lasts Got shit on Pissed on Spit on Stepped on Fucked with Pointed at by lesser men

[Pre] New life in place of old life Unscarred by trials

[Chorus] A new level of confidence and power

Demanding plea for unity between us all — United stand Death before divided fall In mock military order Vulgar Power Impatient Because time is shorter



No fucking surrender Can’t lose Life kills [/toggle] [toggle title=”3. Walk”]Can’t you see I’m easily bothered by persistence One step from lashing out at you… You want in to get under my skin And call yourself a friend I’ve got more friends like you What do I do?

[Pre:] Is there no standard anymore? What it takes, who I am, where I’ve been belong You can’t be something you’re not Be yourself, by yourself Stay away from me A lesson learned in life Known from the dawn of time

[Chorus:] Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk, are you talking to me? Are you talking to me?

Run your mouth when I’m not around, it’s easy to achieve You cry to weak friends that sympathize Can you hear the violins playing your song? Those same friends tell me your every word


[Chorus:] Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk, are you talking to me? Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk, are you talking to me? Are you talking to me?

No way punk!


[Chorus:] Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk, are you talking to me? Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk, are you talking to me? Are you talking to me?

Walk on home, boy![/toggle] [toggle title=”4. Fucking Hostile”]Almost every day I see the same face On broken picture tube It fits the attitude If you could see yourself You put you on a shelf Your verbal masturbate Promise to nauseate Today I’ll play the part of non-parent Not make a hundred rules For you to know about yourself Not lie and make you believe What’s evil is making love and making friends and meeting God you’re own way The right way

[Chorus] To see To bleed Cannot be taught In turn You’re making us Fucking hostile

We stand alone

The truth in right and wrong The boundaries of the law You seem to miss the point Arresting for a joint? You seem to wonder why Hundreds of people die You’re writing tickets man My mom got jumped — they ran! Now I’ll play a public servant To serve and protect By the law and the state I’d bust the punks That rape steal and murder And leave you be If you crossed me I’d shake your hand like a man Not a god


Come meet your maker, boy Some things you can’t enjoy Because of heaven/hell A fucking wives’ tale They put it in your head Then put you in your bed He’s watching say your prayers Cause God is everywhere Now I’ll play a man learning priesthood Who’s about to take the ultimate test in life I’d question things because I am human And call NO ONE my father who’s no closer that a stranger

I won’t listen

[Chorus] [/toggle] [toggle title=”5. This Love”]If ever words were spoken Painful and untrue I said I loved but I lied In my life All I wanted Was the keeping Of someone like you As it turns out Deeper within me Love was twisted and pointed at you

Never ending pain, quickly ending life —

[Chorus] You keep this love, thing, love, child, love, toy You keep this love, fist, love, scar, love, break You keep this love

I’d been the tempting one Stole her from herself This gift in pain Her pain was life And sometimes I feel so sorry I regret this the hurting of you But you make me so unhappy I’d take my life and leave love with you

I’d kill myself for you, I’d kill you for myself —


No more head trips [/toggle] [toggle title=”6. Rise”]We’ve got no time to lose Your news is old news Hate this, hate me, hate this Right approach for the wrong It’s time to spread the word Let the voice be heard All of us, one of us, all of us Dominate and take the motherfucking world

Mass prediction, unification Breathing life into our lungs EVERY creed and EVERY kind To give us depth for strength

Taught when we’re young to hate one another It’s time to have a new reign of power Make pride universal so no one gives in Turn our backs on those who oppose Then when confronted we ask them the question What’s wrong with their mind? What’s wrong with your mind?

[Chorus] It’s time to RISE

We’ve lived with past mistakes And we’ve lived with our own Forgive, forget forgive Be a man, not a child There are to tears for peace Of the common sympathies Educate, reinstate, educate A thing of past The trouble in the states

It’s time to rise[/toggle] [toggle title=”7. No Good (Attack The Radical)”]In the states There’s a problem with race Because of ignorant past burned fires From evolution We’ve been killing each other I figure man should have it down to a science

No chance Not for a minute Not for a second I won’t be defensive I’m straight out in my opinion You’d better listen to a man who knows what he is saying I’ve seen your side You run and hide for the mere fact that you feel inferior Be superior And know your interior

[Pre] Race, pride, prejudice Black man, white man No stand Live in the past We make it last A hated mass No solution Mind pollution For revolution

[Chorus] So low behold my eyes This land of fools will rise No good For no one

You blame oppression and play the role of criminals To rape and burn show progress is minimal White hoods and militants you know it’s such a pity Living, breathing Violence in your city

If one man Had one home In one world Held live alone without variety Full of anxiety No one to point at, question Or even talk to — in his private grave No matter what color He wouldn’t be saved from hell He dwells A closed mind playing the part of prison cells


[Chorus] [/toggle] [toggle title=”8. Live In A Hole”]Full of grief I scream at the wind Thought I heard the words of others Imprison myself And stay in a shell I won’t let you in to have a story to tell Things tend to drag me down Don’t understand so they hate me now

[Chorus] My fear grips the will of stone My grip fears I’ll die alone

I promised myself somewhere in the teenage life I’d never submit to the ones I will not be like Live in a hole But stay close to my kind Cause they understand what burns in my mind I still feel incomplete Friends are few and far between

[Chorus] [/toggle] [toggle title=”9. Regular People (Conceit)”]I’ve trampled on that road That you think you own You have that “smart ass” attitude It’s time to stop the fiction

I live it every day While your mind’s far away I’m out here putting pride on the line And you case on me with pure respect One chance at one thing Hard time is coming My time, your pain I reign on you

[Pre] You think you own I take away Take it with me You think you own I took away Made it my own

[Chorus] Most regular people would say it’s hard And any streetwise son of a bitch knows Don’t fuck with this

The so many times You practice in your mirror To be just like me But you just can’t see You ain’t got the balls, son

I fight for love of brother Your friends fight one another You can’t see because your head’s up your ass And just in case you think you’re bad I crush your rush I rule YOU fool I’m immovable stone in your world of weak — I speak


[Chorus][/toggle] [toggle title=”10. By Demons Be Driven”]Serving the faith Abduction the oath It lie in wait for the offering Religion is old For drawing the young Purity withers and dies Never return to the ones that provided Children draining parents of will I hold out my hand to bloodless child I’m taken by the one I was saving From death

[Chorus] By demons be driven Beckon the call

With decline in mind End not far We’re left hanging alone here He pulls us from nails Shatters our bones Leaving us crippled and strewn Boiling my corpse in the blood of his children Praying for his god to prevail Burying us with loved ones To sleep with shelled children of the sixth dimension

[Chorus][/toggle] [toggle title=”11. Hollow”]What’s left inside him? Don’t he remember us? Can’t he believe me? We seemed like bothers Talked for hours last month About what we wanna be I sit now with his hand in mine But I know he can’t feel…

No one knows What’s done is done It’s as if he were dead

I’m close with his mother And she cries endlessly Lord how we miss him At least what’s remembered It’s so important to make best friends in life But it’s hard when my friend sits with blank expressions

No one knows What’s done is done It’s as if he were dead

He as hollow as I alone now He as hollow as I alone A shell of my friend Just flesh and bone There’s no soul He sees no love I shake my fists at skies above Mad at God

He as hollow as I converse I wish he’d waken from this curse Hear my words before it’s through I want to come in after you My best friend

He as hollow as I alone [/toggle] -Mouth For War counted in’s 50 best rock songs of 1992.
