about

I Decline Chicago, Illinois

The words “I Decline” represent a middle finger to the mediocrity in the world of modern hard rock & metal music. Fusing this creed with the attitude of Punk, riff-laden hooks of Classic and Stoner Rock, and the fury of Heavy Metal, I Decline crafts its own hybrid of hard-edged music that they define as the “New Wave of American Punk Metal”.

Track Name: Street Scene
You didn't know -
Look out!
This is paradise.
Life-long show -
Get up!
And I will meet you where it is....
Real low.

As good as gold -
Cry out!
Waste is still devised,
who know the scene?
Break loose!
Or keep on livin' like a Chimpanzee.

Ch:
All to the streets,
Alright now beat your feet
Speak load, it should be said
That I'm young but I'm already dead.

Track Name: Raze Lazarus (You Know Who's the Thief)
High up on temple mound
armed with many prayers
I had a dreadful thought
that you were no longer there

So I go
(go go)
Go now
I'm drinking fear
and my fear is running out
(yeah, don't run out)

Came down from sermon mound
Eyes a streaming read
I called upon a friend
and this is what I said

Hold On
(hold on)
Don't let go
He'll do his best
but you know who's got the pull

I'll not accept
Won't try to believe
You know who's the thief

I did my best
But Someone wouldn't see
Watch the slaves
Bow before the thief
Raize Lazarus
Yeah, Christ can watch me fry
It kills my will to fight to fucking try

Blessed are the few
They never get relief
So God-damn abused
Will someone let
Will someone let me sleep

Jumped off the highest mound
Fell down on my knees
I found the awful truth
that someone had pushed me

So I go
(Go Go)
Go down
I did my best
But you know who's in control

God damn thief
On my knees

Here's your moment
When you fell through that hole
You lost the future
And you'll never grow old
You say goodbye
To no one
And kill all my friends
So slowly
Just remember
I say goodbye to no one
Track Name: Yeah, You Did
It's not my place to say,
It's all on you, there's no time
There's no time.

It's not my game to play,
The blood's on you,
Goodbye,
Yeah..

Yeah you did
Yeah you did it
Yeah you did
Yeah you did it

Maybe one day,
you'll stop blaming me.
A pointing poser,
to busy to see.... it.
Track Name: Skeleton Dance
Swallow Swords it curbs the appetite.
Bed of nails, how'd you sleep last night?
You make me,
You break me,
Your blade always shines.
You hold my neck upon it while I'm bleeding in time.

Skeleton dance
How is it workin' in hell?

CH:
Long knives
Surround you
No mas, no more can't take this and I
Never learned a thing from you.

One step closer, gone
That's the way it goes.
Where's my stop man?
I don't know.
Is it right here or right on?
It ends all the same -
In a box that's six feet under,
where the worms pick your brain.

Skeleton dance
How is it workin' in hell?

CH:
Long knives
Surround you
No mas, no more can't take this and I
Never learned a thing from you.

Long knives
Surround you
No mas, no more can't take this and I
know I got a job to do...

And maybe you will find,
that baby, I'm alive...
Keep on feeding me them knives.
Just stick 'em real deep
or carve me up like meat,
either way, I think you're doin' fine.

Skeleton Dance
Track Name: Give Him a Hand
Hey man you ain't got no money
Hey man I'm a broke like you
God damn, you're livin' like a convict
But this con's collar is blue...

Yeah, his collar is blue

Twelve hours, singin' with the chain gang
Twelve hours, fightin' on the line
Run down, battered and bloody
Without a doubt, all out of time

Dyin' at dawn, Dyin' at dawn
Gettin' up payin' them dues
Dyin' at dawn
Diggin' a ditch, Diggin' a ditch
Breakin' your back, goin' insane
Diggin' a ditch
Drained all day, Drained all day
Slowing you down, drowning you out
Drained all day
Death at dusk, Death at dusk
Give him a hand, he never complains
Death at Dusk

Hey man you ain't got no money
Hey man I'm a broke like you
God damn, you're livin' like a convict
But this con's collar is blue
