Garen Boyadjian Heard this album around 10 years ago through a friend at Serjical Strike. Emailed SDOS if they had any of their 7 inches available on CD and they were nice enough to put all their material on a CDR for me!! And I still have the disk after all this time.

Track Name: Best Friends Forever
you say you're p.c? i'd say pretty confused. cuz there was nothing correct about the girl you abused. she trusted you and laid by your side. but you touched her in her sleep not once but twice. i think you should fucking die. i hope you fucking die. fuck you simon. you had to ruin it. the perceived safety among friends.
Track Name: The End of the World as I Know It...
if your finger were bigger i'd hang myself, but instead i hang my head. i'd buy you saturn saturday if that would make you stay. if that would make this feeling go away.
Track Name: Phone is Ringing, Oh My God
the dictionary is necessary when you can't open your mouth. a loss of words is what i heard (a loss of words) when we met eye to eye. basement shows are not the easiest fucking place. and i called just to say goodnight. called you up just to say goodnight. woke you up just to say goodnight. can't you see the frustration growing on my face. constant anticipation of every move that i'll never make. why can't life be just like a phone call? why can't life and love... phone is ringing but where's my angel?
Track Name: Bury Your Head
as our sun sets i'm stuck here with regret waiting for the sky to fall down and crush my heart and everything that surrounds. at night, i lay awake, afraid to turn on the light to see the loneliness that my existence has become. and i say that i know it's not my fault and you're the one who's really missing out, but i don't believe it. you lie in bed with your smile so wide, so wide it brightens up the sky. i begin to cry. you wipe my tears away as you say, "is everything going to be alright?" how could everything be alright when i wake up shaking in the night? when the cat that i love has got my tongue and i'm on the run. as our sun sets...
Track Name: Color Between The Lines
trace that thought it chalk. red velvet one foot from the eye. six feet below the line that divides the earth and the sky. dear angel, you've grown horns so sharp they;ll stab through your lies and right through all your lines. darkness is quickly coming in. the outlook is constantly sinking. optimism is a thing of the past. i want it back. don't ever trace that thought... and as all exciting thought becomes a new outline in chalk i will stand up for myself and for the world's mind. you will not leave me behind. you can not leave me behind. never decline from this process so divine. if you let them censor your thoughts then they control your mind and that's all you've got. for all of the world's mind. for all of the world is mine.
Track Name: Positively Stupid Youth
what the fuck do you think that you're doing? it's something positive you and your crew will ruin. take it past the extreme to the hardline, hate-edge, courage crew bullshit. your actions make me sick, but this sickness gives me a reason to sing. a reason to sing. "fuck all who cheapen what i truly am in others eyes." go. i fell in love with the scene as an escape from fucks like you, but it's the face not the floor you punch, you're carving an "X", so fuck you.
