warren barton Fantastic grindcore with great lyrics. Corroded is such a vital record that remains a must have in any collection. Drugs of Faith have created an intellectual album that bears down on the heaviest scene with stunning ease. Favorite track: Greyed Out.

nathan breon Excellent and sophisticated grind for grownup big boys. Fantastic vocals and great lyrics. Not surprising because Johnson is the boss. Well executed and well produced.

Greyed Out 03:11
The rug pulled out from under Ground a lofty mind Now feet firmly planted With nothing for which to stand Wittingly perpetrate Knowingly perpetuate A mindset of convenience Impossible to dispose Oh, the impact quickly fades As does the shame of past mistakes Selective amnesia (Our) saving grace
2.
Look incredulous At the invisible lines that are drawn Irrespective of what’s happening Here on the ground Who’s together And who should be parted? If I can demonstrate I support this economy Then why can’t I continue to support my family? Writs are issued on the legality of being From the desk of nation building But if we’re all citizens of the world I already hold my proof inside Forced migration That’s not of my doing No papers that I didn’t write Telling me where I can’t be My mind is free And I take my body with me
3.
Civilized confinement Sputtering beneath Stirs sad melodies That loom in spoiled air Backward system I perpetuate On which I both Depend and hate Refine the Earth Redefine its purpose I’m creeping along Black scars I don’t like where I’m going I don’t like where we’re going
4.
Hidden Costs 02:16
Footprints all over the landscape From drilling in the mountain Leading to carbon domes Draw dust into my lungs! I watch the drifting fallout Like snow from man-made clouds It slips through my fingers And nestles in my marrow! A strong economy Supports our MAD Brings good things to life Except in the Mideast Use as directed To avoid an invasion
5.
Giveaway 02:29
At the frontier of speculation When the going gets rough The rough ask for handouts Mouth gaping, eyes wide open Fixated on the fingers Fidgeting with the purse strings A coin for their trouble Another for their contribution Disasters such a capital idea An ideal way to induce shock Embrace the proven concepts And be rewarded for their failures All are welcome with hat in hand Not bothering to hide Those satisfied smiles
6.
Anemic 01:15
Shortsightedness is pathetic When corrupted moral conscience Brings revisionist acts to bear New fears of realism Shield those you think below you From what they already know Responsibility For your art You have negated
7.
Vignette 02:27
We came into this comedy Too little, too late Seeking a space to view The play of characters so far removed Though we believed to understand At times what we’d missed begged the question “Where have we been?” There’s no choice but to keep on guessing Moving forward towards the end We came into this comedy so unprepared We came into this tragedy so unaware So unprepared, so unaware In this life, we’re never certain Of where and who we are
8.
No We Can't 02:30
And we follow another leader Still waving the flag with heads held high   No collecting freely from the air And snatching from the sky We keep our noses to the ground As our great-grandfathers did The more things haven’t changed The more things stay the same   It’s the old Washington two-step Before we were for it We were against it One step forward And two steps back Change we can’t believe in
9.
Untitled 01:32
10.
Checkers 02:02
We are players in a larger scheme Facing the enemy on the other side To prop up an illegitimate king Power based on wishful thinking The game is simple but the object elusive For those too distracted to see Playing given no consideration And in the end, only one stands Pre-emptively defending our side from theirs This is our doctrine that can’t impress Playing a childish game of checkers While the rest look on, and play chess
11.
Sight Unseen 00:21
12.
This is a farewell kiss, you dog. This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq.

Hinges 00:55
lyrics by His Hero Is Gone
14.
The rolling tide does not greet me Nor the Sun rise and set for me I find pleasure in their Simple states of being In what is self-evident I need not search for greater meaning These transcendental moments I experience on my own The Earth would still circle the Sun And the Moon compel the waves Without the fairy tale
