about

BOUND BY DEFIANCE Toronto, Ontario

"BOUND BY DEFIANCE" features ex-members of, Birth Of Hate, Always Die Fighting, Minority, and Monster Voodoo Machine, to say a few. Being older guys it was our intention to create an "old school" sounding album, with a positive vibe, have every song strike a chord, both sonically and mentally and be able to look back on this effort as an audio-phonic manual for remaining on the right path. ... more

Track Name: Built To Collapse
Open your eyes see what we've become. Greedy, resource depleting, global infection.
Drain it all, kill them all, follow us to the grave. Way of life that was wrong, from the start willing slaves.
TAKING ALL THAT YOU HAVE, CONSUMING ALL THAT WE CAN.
No contingency plan to the mass. On purpose to create a collapse.
TAKING ALL THAT YOU HAVE, CONSUMING ALL THAT WE CAN, OUR WAY OF LIFE was dead wrong.
BUILT TO COLLAPSE.
When will we admit mistakes, take action FOR A BETTER WAY.
Led by few who control our fate, on deaf ears, REFUSING TO CHANGE.
Track Name: Suffer In Circles
YOU SUFFER.
An awakening one day to realize,* (TIME TO WAKE UP) that suffering is multiplied by desire.*(BREAK THE CYCLE)
The more I seek, the more I'm becoming lost.*(I HAVE WOKE UP)
I was born with all I need at no cost.
Suffering in circles all your life. IT'S NEVER ENOUGH, YOU'RE NEVER SATISFIED (x2)......never satisfied......YOUR NEVER.
An awakening one day to realize, (*)compassion is the meaning of life.(*)
The more I give, the more I'm going to get.(*)
Respect all life, stopping the ignorance.
Suffering in circles all their lives, WHO ARE YOU TO CHOOSE WHAT LIVES AND WHAT DIES ?(x2)
You buy with selfishness on your mind, it's time to leave this bullshit far behind.
CESSATION OF YOUR GREED STARTS AND ENDS WITH YOU.
AN EFFORT REQUIRED, AND SOME FOLLOW THROUGH.
Just follow through.
Track Name: Faith In Me
I don't subscribe, to some blind faith to guide me through my life. I know it's me, that sets my course on everything.
I know now that I'm my own god.
How can there be any peace from a brutal warring species, that has been obsessed with blowing itself to pieces.
Were so advanced, and yet were so savage. You live for your Lord, then rape, kill, and ravage.
How is there peace from a warring species ?
We have only come so far, and now were at a standstill. When the doctrine and the Gods, are reasons to go kill.
How many have died for all these religions ? If this has been pleasing your God....your God is a demon.
On and on we'll kill for faith. What proof shows your right anyway ?
You're no better off than me.
Track Name: Born Possessed
Everything that defines you, is a human defect that your ego grew.
Every word coming out your mouth was puppeteered from the outside in.
* Can't you see that we've been all born possessed, with the need for an image to project.
Social conditioning, and your upbringing, influenced who you became.
That's not you, that's an impression, without it we're exactly the same.
*
A covert takeover of all of mankind. The enemy's within, its always been your mind.
Take a step back, sit down, shut up, and start to view it.
What you thought you had control of, you'll soon realize ya didn't.
Trying so hard to hold on to whats been deceiving you.
Track Name: All The Best
The pain you have I only know, we shared a life each others clones.
I know just what you went through, that's why you distance me from you.
(*) I don't hate whom you have grown to become, it just seems that we're far too different.
I don't take any offense, the need you feel to be distant. ' Cause all that pain that we went through, still today has got a grip on you.
(*)
But I cant participate in a relationship that's one way.
I'LL REMEMBER YOU BROTHER.
As we go on OUR SEPARATE WAYS, just remember it's you that chose this fate. As we go on OUR SEPARATE WAYS, I'll remember you.
As we go OUR SEPARATE WAYS, I'll remember that you don't want to change. As we go on OUR SEPARATE WAYS, I'll remember you BROTHER.
Track Name: Labour Pains
Dragging your ass, just to get up. Work like a slave, all just for a buck. Working so hard, just to pay bills. Succumbed to the stress, with booze, smoke, and some more pills.
*Somethings' wrong in society, when we see work more than family. When you're home, they're in bed, the bills are paid but you feel dead.
The pays too low, the rents' too high, the hours too long. Now work overtime. Put in that time. No time to play. The kids have all grown, now they've all moved away. *
Bustin' your ass, trying to stay afloat. With no time for them, your at each others throats. One step forward, another two steps back. You got a raise today, and then they upped tax. Family is second, cause the dollar is first. A system crudely designed to keep blue collars cursed.
Damn too many years we've watched pass by. Lost sight of ourselves, all in the endless struggle to survive.
Track Name: Cause And Effect
All that time that has been wasted wallowing in self pity, suffering, and hatred. Just to inflict it upon someone else, only perpetuated suffering I did to myself...ALRIGHT.
I KNOW half a life spent I've been wasted, in smoke filled rooms blacking out in a basement.
Stillness, silence, and balance is key. Moments of contemplation, think of nothing , and just breathe.....and let it all be.
(*) I never felt this much alive. 30 years WAS DEAD INSIDE. Always wondering just why,...I know why,
I was holdin' on (X3) TO MY HATRED.
I never felt this much alive. 30 years WAS DEAD INSIDE. Always wondering why me? But i broke free (*).
I was holding on to an emotion that was killing me, and now I broke those chains finally to be set free. ALRIGHT.
All that time that has been wasted, wallowing in self pity, suffering, and hatred.
I KNOW half a life spent I've been wasted, in smoke filled rooms blacking out for what ?
Track Name: Countdown
There's no use fighting change in society, look internally and be the change you wish to see.
I know you're the "only one", and you haven't got the time. Born with a countdown clock, that's soon about to chime. Countdown.
I don't think you realize, this is your only life. Don't take a second for granted. Don't let it be passing you by !!!
Track Name: You Were Always There
When I was homeless, hungry, and helpless, Hardcore was always there. All alone, wanting to kill myself, when noone seemed to care. Was always wasted on drugs, and hated every part of life. To know some others felt the same, it got me through the night.
Young in my room crankin' tunes, or with headphones in the street. Anytime was the right time, whether in anger or peace. I owe a lot to all those bands that I loved so very deep, you were there through all my life and I thank you gratefully.
When I matured, got clean and cured, Hardcore was always there. New outlook, I released the hooks, opened up a new frontier. Now I'm patient, dropped the hatred, and buried my old life. But one thing remained the same, I kept Hardcore in my mind.
