The Discipline

This song is by Earth Crisis and appears on the album Destroy the Machines (1995).

Straight edge - the discipline.
The key to selfliberation is abstinence from the destructive escapism of
Intoxication. I separate from the poison - a mindlessness
I've always abhored. Usage will only increase the pain, a truth I
Constantly see ignored. The pollutants that kill the body breed
Apathy within the mind. The substances that once brought
Release in the end will always confine.
From drug-clouded lungs and veins motviation dissipates.
Imprisoned within addiction,
Abuse increases until death overtakes.
Enslaved by concupiscence, promiscuity leads to despair.
Victims used and abandoned by
Liars who professed to care. Self-exiled from their insanity.
Striving to attain higher levels of purity. The beauty in life
Is mine to know. Amidst the ruin I survive. I've got to stay free.
Damage everywhere - infections at every turn. Through my
Refusal to partake I saved myself. Abstinence was the beginning.
What's important is what's done with the freedom step by
Step I overcome. Alone I climb the staircase to edification.
