Track Name: 狗神 - Will Not Compromise
My things left there
Waiting for me
My coat my shoes my spotless gloves

Putting them on
Abandon my disguise
Abandon all fear and became myself

Down the alley
Heard women scream
First bubbling note of city's chorus

The man turned
Recognition rewarding
Sometimes the night is generous to me

My face
My face
My face
Put on my face my face my face

And I will not compromise
In the face of annihilation
Looking back on everything
I step into the shadows with no regret

All the whores and politicians
Will look up and shout "save us"
I'll look down and whisper no
I'll look down and whisper no

Mom was a whore
And when she died
Restricted comments to one word, "good"

Manhattan's dress
Left unwanted
Learned to cut
And donned my face

Tricky Dick
And the Keene act
Incarcerated
Under attack

He to infirmary
Me to solitary
You don't understand
You're locked in here with me

My face
My face
My face
Give back my face my face my face

And I will not compromise
In the face of annihilation
Looking back on everything
I step into the shadows with no regret

All the whores and politicians
Will look up and shout "save us"
I'll look down and whisper no
I'll look down and whisper no

I will not compromise
In the face of annihilation
Looking back on everything
I step into the shadows with no regret

I will not compromise
In the face of annihilation
Looking back on everything
I didn't have to be a martyr

You know this city is dying of rabies
Violent lives ending so violently
When you walk down the street
And hear the human cockroaches
Talking about their kiddy porno
And their heroin
Do you really feel normal?
Do you really feel normal?
