Regional Faction Seattle, Washington

Profound, purposeful, protagonists of the new Seattle punk rock movement. Dutiful, dialectic, denigrate of the 1%. A sincere attempt at blending LA, Seattle, and Ontario styles with a twist of social consciousness and zeitgeist commentary.

Track Name: Squid Liquid
S Q U I D L I Q U I D

7 echelons will in-avertedly strike
To my amusement I suffice
The raw emotions that I discern
I will not lie
I won't roll over
Why would I?

If this is the end I'm gonna go out laughing
Cause you Fucks all over-reacted
My bed's in with the enemies friend
Now it's too late to change sides
We all know what happens when my decisions
Go unregulated
My hypocrisy outweighs the latest statement
That I made

So at your expense sit back
To watch me ingress
Your privileges all stop right here

This is the way it has to be

"Don't believe everything they try and sell you"

I am a friend and I am in need

"You are the anti-Christ, defy all that is holy"

If this is the end I'm gonna go out laughing
Cause you Fucks all over-reacted
My bed's in with the enemies friend
Now it's too late to change sides
We all know what happens when my decisions
Go unregulated
My hypocrisy outweighs the latest statement
That I made

So at your expense sit back
To watch me ingress
Your privileges all stop right here
Track Name: Dung Beetle
D U N G B E E T L E

Hey you better open your eyes
We're blinded by a system
That's been controlling our minds
Propaganda what's false what's true
One more time explain away the truth
Endless crimes against humanity
Corruption immoralities Delusions
Of divinity is constantly haunting me
One by one day by day
Do you like being betrayed

Victims until we fall
Rise above take a stand now
And change it all
Revolt refuse resist
Unite to fight against them
Time is not on our side

Misled down the wrong path
For the last time
We're drifting through this society
Watching the erosion to our liberties
This kind of celebration calls for a toast
When the enemy can engage our happiness
Through rays of false hope
Although the warmth you feel
Isn't real will it be enough
To sustain the life you chose to live
Your honesty is failing
You feel like giving in

Victims until we fall
Rise above take a stand now
And change it all
Revolt refuse resist
Unite to fight against them

Victims until we fall
Rise above take a stand now
And change it all
Revolt refuse resist
Unite to fight against them
Time is not on our side
Track Name: Kemp (Millencolin Cover)
M I L L E N C O L I N K E M P

I gotta learn how to lose and to choose my own wars
I gotta understand it's not me against the world no more
When you are sure as hell then I don't know
When you are pure and well then I am low
When you say "sure as hell" then I say no
I say no... I say no

Like a spoke in my wheel yeah like a bugging fly
A thorn in my side just like a constant red eye
On being an ass I've really been a pro
But can I say no

I know I've tread on your toes and it shows who I am
And all these situations and relations from the start
They were damned
I feel a need to stop when you say go
I am indeed a flop if you say so
I feel a need to stop so I say no
I say no... I say no

Like a spoke in my wheel yeah like a bugging fly
A thorn in my side just like a constant red eye
On being an ass I've really been a pro
What can I say

Like a spoke in my wheel yeah like a bugging fly
A thorn in my side just like a constant red eye
On being an ass I've really been a pro
But can I say no
Track Name: Cerebral Tick

If you read all of the signs correctly
You would see that nothing was going to
Stop this machine so as long as we don't settle down
Always attempting to take a stand yeah
To fight we might bite the bullet
In two and descend across the land
Out over the sea

Did you say I was getting meek
These past few weeks I been treading onward
Your not at fault but you're the one to blame

Local eyes will peer upon the stage
As we have all made our selections
What we can proudly present
To relay those messages
We've hidden within our songs
While some have held strong
There are others that remain to be polished
Off you nod the same
These songs they have all changed
Or are you just nodding off

You wanna be the one on top
You wanna be the one on top
But you never will
You never will

So with the stakes left high in vain
You've been having second thoughts
About the reasons you've come back here
You're not at fault anymore
Track Name: Legeon's Free
L E G E O N ' S F R E E

Earth has been a place for us
To wheel our own minds
And try out new innovative approaches
To rise above the challenge
To improve your quality of life

But I can't believe these fair-weather floozies
When it feels as though I've paid my dues
I'm left with no return
I'm finding out there's just too many people
Who don't care they lack concern

We are the free thinkers
We will find our own way
Left on the back burner
We are collectively hungry

There is a strength in numbers
Where the wise will prosper
We wear this disposition we are in with honor
No fear induced paralysis
Will bury it's nest unchecked
The virus dies here
We uphold our own laws
We set a higher bar
No need to slit each other's throat
We all bleed the same
We all share similar goals
No beat will skip unsown
We are the ones who are telling the story

We are the free thinkers
We will find our own way
Left on the back burner
We are collectively hungry
Now as the fight had been rendered done
Yeah you got back up
And you fought again
Now as we gather all our thoughts
We'll be back to avenge
The rights that you've wronged

I send out my condolences
To misled youth false promises
To warriors who shed some light
On circling vultures

We are the free thinkers
We will find our own way
Left on the back burner
We are collectively hungry
Now as the fight had been rendered done
Yeah you got back up
And you fought again
Now as we gather all our thoughts
We'll be back to avenge
The rights that you've wronged
Track Name: Statutory Ape
S T A T U T O R Y A P E

We are all audible against the grain
And digging out our own graves
Patiently destined for change
I've been channeling my kinetic energy
Preying on the elite until the die off
Revelations 23:
In this class we teach everything
From worshipping false idols
To embellishing US History
But the art of listening
No longer is a commodity
We still preach our beliefs

Conflict of interest was all I'd been shown
How does one stabilize
in a world contrived of horrible sins?
Our founding fathers placed
A burden on our innocence

Wait I can't believe we try
To curb our own carnivore instincts
Purified beneath the skin
Lies a beast that sees life
For what it really is
And one day it will surface
But together we must rise
What may seem like a suicide
Could only benefit the greater good

Conflict of interest was all I'd been shown
How does one stabilize
in a world contrived of horrible sins?
Our founding fathers placed
A burden on our innocence

You see the cage now escape

Conflict of interest was all I'd been shown
How does one stabilize
in a world contrived of horrible sins?
Our founding fathers placed
A burden on our innocence
