Track Name: Intro/Don't Count Me Out
You thought we were gone, left us for dead
A corpse on the street, the blood running red
But Olde York is back, like Judge had once said
Stronger then ever, and kicking some heads

We're coming back
Don't Count Me Out!
My turn to attack
Don't Count Me Out!
You can't stop us, no way
We're gonna take over today

All of these crews overrunning the scene
Just there to punch kids its fucking obscene
But Olde York is back, yeah we're here to stay
This feeling of Olde York it won't go away

We're coming back
Don't Count Me Out!
My turn to attack
Don't Count Me Out!
You can't stop us, no way
We're gonna take over today

Every time I fucking see you
Makes me glad I'll never be you
Old New York burns in my eyes
With a fire that'll never die
Track Name: We Still Believe
WE STILL BELIEVE

WE STILL BELIEVE!
In our hearts and in our minds that we can rebuild the scene
WE’LL FIND A WAY
To make it work, keep it going, growing stronger each day
And I still believe in my heart that we can work it out
Keep this scene alive and vital
I have no doubts

Every day for me
Is the same old grind
If I said it once, then I said it a 1000 times
But when I go to a show
Or get up on stage
Freeing me that energy
Release me from my cage

WE STILL BELIEVE!
In our hearts and in our minds that we can rebuild the scene
WE’LL FIND A WAY
To make it work, keep it going, growing stronger each day
And I still believe in my heart that we can work it out
Keep this scene alive and vital
I have no doubts
And I know it’s the same for you
Cause you’re all here now
And we can’t let it slip away
Or ever let them beat us down
There’s too few of us
Too many of them
Gotta keep the scene united
Bring it back again
GO!
FREESTYLE!
WE STILL BELIEVE!
Track Name: Abused
ABUSED

She told you no, but you didn’t care
She begged and pleaded, you just pulled her hair
She was crying, lying on her bad
Her broken nose its bleeding red
Her blackened eye swollen shut
Cause she couldn’t get off your twisted nut

You think you’re cool cause you got control
She does what you say cause she’s in a choke hold
It’s not from respect that she treats you this way
It’s the fear of the beating you give her each day
You think you’re cool cause you got control
She does what you say cause she’s in a choke hold
It’s not from respect that she treats you this way
It’s the fear of the beating you give her each day

She’s not, she’s not a piece of meat
There to get your rocks off when you please
It don’t make you a man
Taking advantage just because you can
She’s not, she’s not a piece of meat
There to get your rocks off when you please
It don’t make you a man
Taking advantage just because you mutherfucking can

You think you can?
You think you can?
You think you can?
Think about this sucker!

Its not just physical
Its verbal too
And you make her feel bad
For the way she’s treated by you
Tell her that if she hadn’t fucked up
But now you’re the one who’s running out of luck!
Track Name: False Idols
FALSE IDOLS

When I’m walking round
Yeah I see it everywhere
All these people walking round
And they got such blank stares

But I know what’s right
I know what’s true
I believe in myself
And you should believe in you

And I
I won’t back down
And I
I’ll stand my ground

NO FALSE IDOLS
I believe in myself today
NO FALSE IDOLS
True faith will sustain
NO FALSE IDOLS
I believe in myself today
NO FALSE IDOLS…

When I look around all I see is hurt and pain
Close my eyes and its still the same
Its getting so I wanna turn my back on you
And when I look around all I see is hurt and pain
Try to reach out and nothings changed
Its getting so I wanna close my eyes to you
To you…
Track Name: One Good Thing (feat. Tony Enz)
ONE GOOD THING

My Heart!
My Soul!
My Life!
My One Good Thing!

Time goes quickly by
Yeah time moves in the blink of an eye
You’ve grown so fast
I can’t believe you were so little
Once to small to speak
No run so fast, I can’t keep up
Your smiling face brightens up my day

My Heart!
My Soul!
My Life!
My One Good Thing!
My Heart!
My Soul!
My Life!
My One Good Thing!

Bound by blood we are
Yet bound by so much more
Two hearts entwined
A father to his son
NOT LIKE MINE!
I would give all I had
Just to make you glad
To see me everyday
Yeah to wipe the tears from your face

My Heart!
My Soul!
My Life!
My One Good Thing!
My Heart!
My Soul!
My Life!
My One Good Thing!

THE!
ONE!
PURE!
THE ONE PURE LOVE!
Track Name: Glories Past
GLORIES PAST

This is no song of glories past
But glories yet to come
We’ll sing this to the last
United blood
AS ONE!

Looking at the way
The scene is today
Everything’s so fractured
What happened to the unity?
I guess it couldn’t last
These days of glories past
Everything just fell apart
Hardcore seems to have lost its heart!

But we’re gonna get it back
Show the world we haven’t lost the path
What is now us verses them
Will be united
BROTHERHOOD AGAIN!
BROTHERHOOD AGAIN!
BROTHERHOOD AGAIN!

This is no song of glories past
But glories yet to come
We’ll sing this to the last
United blood
AS ONE!
Track Name: Mirror
MIRROR

What I see
When you look at me
Reflections in your eyes
And to my surprise I saw myself
Staring back at me

How can this be?
Two people so the same
Its freakin scary
Feels like I’m going insane
Got feelings in me
To strong I cannot hide
These feelings in me
Won’t stay locked in-side

But now, now my
SEARCH IS OVER!
I’ve found the one thing that will keep me sane
ONE HEART! ONE MIND!
Two souls united they will bind
TOGETHER! FOREVER!
And one day…

The madness, insanity inside of me
The muddled remembrance of you
The hurt, the pain that you caused me
And all you put me through
But I’m not gonna take it anymore
Got my own life to live
Gonna find a new way to breakout
Find a new way to give

And now
THE SEARCH IS OVER!
And I’ve found the one thing
That will keep me sane
ONE HEART! ONE MIND!
Two souls united, they will bind
TOGETHER! FOREVER!
And one day…
Track Name: Talkin' Smack (feat. Eddie Leeway)
TALKIN’ SMACK

Sometimes I can’t believe the shit you say
The words that come out of your mouth
Do you just make this stuff up to hear yourself speak?
Who the fuck you trying to impress?

Nobody’s interested, nobody cares
Still your gums keep flapping away
Its call verbal diarrhea, and you’ve got it bad
So why don’t you just shut the fuck up?

TALKIN’ SMACK
TALKIN’ SMACK
TALKIN’ SMACK
You’re just talkin’ smack

TALKIN’ SMACK
TALKIN’ SMACK
TALKIN’ SMACK
You’re just talkin’ smack
Track Name: Wanna Go Out
WANNA GO OUT

Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!
YEAH!
Wanna go out tonight
Wanna get fucked get feeling right
Seems I do it everyday
But the pain inside no it won’t go away
Will I ever catch a break?
Will I meet my death at an early grave?
What more can I say?
Its okay, fucking walk away

It’s an uphill battle
Each and every day
Fighting the demons that get in my way
Think I’ll make it?
Wouldn’t take that bet, but I’m still here, so don’t count me out yet
If you could see things through my eyes
Bet you’d find a nasty fucking surprise
I know its pretty fucked up thing to say
But sometimes I wanna blow it all away

Wanna go out tonight
Oi! Oi!
Gonna get fucked, get feeling right
Seems I do it everyday
But the pain inside no it won’t go away
Will I ever catch a break?
Will I meet my death at an early grave?
What more can I say?
I know its fucked up
But sometimes I just
Sometimes I just wanna blow it all away!

Let’s blow it away!
Let’s blow it away!
Let’s blow it away!
I know it’s fucked up, but I wanna blow this world away
Let’s blow it away!
Let’s blow it away!
Let’s blow it away!
Or maybe, I’ll save it for another fucking day
