The entire album will be available for digital download BUT you should definitelybuy the physical album, which comes with the digital download! It looks way cooler, and it's a lost art.

about

Antagonist Whittier, California

ANTAGONIST will unveil their first collection of new music in 5 years, a 6 track EP entitled "Antagonist." They have replaced melodic hooks with punk and hardcore roots to get their sociopolitical message across. The EP is the biggest musical leap Antagonist has ever made, but it still holds true to what they have always been: an adversary of the status quo, socially, musically, and lyrically. ... more

Track Name: Hate
Not enough words, not enough time
you don't know a thing (It's time, it's time)
so full of shit, a body that's so unclean
Preaching my hate, it's all I can give
suffer the violence (my fists, my fists)
What am I, really? A shell of a man
a sense of control I once had

Tales of heartbreak and unrest
and social injustice
the blind men can't see under the surface
the blood that is spilled, the demons living inside of me
What have I done? Nothing at all
I always knew this is what you'd amount to
Nothing, you're a nothing, a nothing just like me

The problem with you
is you love the world
and hatred is all I see
You love the world
pure fucking hatred is all I see
Track Name: Violence
It pains me to say that we're all built this way:
pathetic and empty and soulless and dead
Living as war machines, dying for nothing
merely existing, a world that controls me

Covered in scars, dead from the start
Cancerous womb, rip it apart

We sing your battle hymns
and scream your rallying cries
Point the way and we'll point our guns

I see the world through innocent eyes
The child inside is begging for life
Reality hits, brutality lives
The life we had wished, it just doesn't exist

Violence inside
Unleash onto the world
Release, release
Track Name: Dejection
Low, morale has hit the floor
Alone, ten years of blood and dirt
Hands that have lost their grip
Apathetic, just pathetic

Fall, oh how the weak have fallen
Failure, cry me the fucking Nile
Hard-wired to ignorance machines
Medicated beyond relief
Fall, the blackest solitude
Comatose, I won't be waking soon

Crucifix won't comfort me
Hang myself with your rosary

Giving up won't set me free
Failure cycle for eternity

Woe, journey on Acheron
Down, into the deepest hell
Forgiveness has flown away
Ninth circle is where I lay
Track Name: Extermination
Their moments of silence and prayers pathetic
for clown-nosed cowards who claim to be men
Delusions of grandeur, the poison consumed
by the bigoted bastards and public they serve
They murder from weakness and miseducation
hiding behind the badge
unholy actions while claiming the cross
shrouded behind the flag

Kill the pigs
let them feel our wrath
Kill the pigs
this is extermination

White washed and brainwashed and covered in black
with the power of gods and the minds of insects
Raping our cities, plaguing our creed
No justice, no peace, fuck the land of the free
Children with candy, the mentally ill
the easier target, the better the kill
Show me your valor and I'll show you mine
as I help you eat your gun

Kill the pigs
let them feel our wrath
Kill the pigs

As I help you eat your gun, let me help you eat your gun
Kill the pigs
Show no mercy
every last one
Kill the fucking pigs
Track Name: Tyranny
What did you expect from me?
You want peace? Give me justice
You ask for non-violence
but violence is all you've ever given
Since the beginning, history keeps repeating
Spinning and spinning, heads are spinning

What did you expect?
This isn't over yet
The war rages on
Silencing our voice
You've given us no choice
The revolution has begun

Such outrage! Fuck your barricades!
I'm coming
We're coming!

Centuries of oppression
Psychological warfare
Brutality of the soul and the mind

What did you expect?
This isn't over yet
The war rages on
Silencing our voice
You've given us no choice
The revolution has begun

Such outrage! Fuck your barricades!
I'm coming
We're coming!
Track Name: Scorn
They've given me so many chances
to redeem myself, to cleanse myself
to wash away my sins
That's why they put me here, the doors are sealed
the windows painted black
The world has given up on me
so I fucked it all away

Relive, rewrite, recite
the lines that make or break the man I am
Forward thinking or a phony like the rest?

The world has given up on me
so I fucked it all away
