"Black Label" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
The human confrontation, I've build a phobia
It takes my essence somewhere
Somewhere to take control

I may be far from rocking
I am the one alone
I may be far behind lines
And made them turn away

I want to know, hey you, watch out!
I've made them turn to cripple, hey you, watch out!
When i will know, who'll know, back fight!
Why time would let me die to control

I fear nothing, why don't you know!
I rip my mind and why don't you bleed!
I fear no one, why you turn back!
I may not stop

My freedom can't contain but tell me
The pain I liberate
Riff hostility to anyone
Has made us so much hate
I made them turn from hate but tell me
The pain and suffering
I made them turn from hate but tell me
The pain and suffering
I know

    General CommentI think it's about being materialistic and fake.
    "paradox of socialization results in duress"
    Socialization results in duress (duress = forcible confinement) is paradoxic in the sense that, you'd think someone being social would have lots of friends and be free and stuff, but really that person has to live up to his/her friend's standards and might be able to truly be who they wish to be.

    "Ostracized for clarity of vision"
    Becoming an outcast for not trying to be cool or fit in, he has clarity of vision (that is, he knows what's important and that trying to be a part of the "in crowd" is not important)

    Anyways, that's just my two cents.

    General CommentHe's sick of people and wants to get away but he can't escape.
    He's really fed up with all the obnoxious, racist, and ersatz fakes of the human race.

    General Comment"Humanity. Exterminate with extreme predjudice."

    By this I think he means that we're killing ourselves with religious and racial intolerances and other forms of prejudice. Like through hatred we'll lead ourselves to the decline of humanity.

    General Commentyeah thats pretty much it. hes saying how misanthropic he is and how much he wishes everyone would just fuck off. i duno about the last line meaning that though. i always just took it as him saying to exterminate people. since he hates them so bad he wishes that he or somebody else would just kill them all. "exterminate with extreme prejudice" is a term often just meaning kill them no matter what.
