about

Generation Empty Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Formed in 2008 in Philadelphia, PA, Generation Empty stands a singular force, demanding a revolution in a jaded world that has been intellectually deteriorated by chemical lobotomies and social apathy. Originally prescribed as an industrial rock hybrid, Generation Empty experiments with shots of sleazy blues riffs, hits of brutal metal beats, and overdoses of assorted electronic influences. ... more

Track Name: Dead and Dirty
I’m Miss America’s cocaine nose
Overdose baby and you finally got your fill
Sell me hopes and dreams in a little pill
But the same dreams you kill
Drugged up, Fucked up, Dead and Dirty!
Most of me’s prosthetic and the rest is burning
Drugged up, Fucked up, Dead and Dirty!
Most of me’s prosthetic and the rest is shit…

She loves me, She loves me not
She loves me, She loves me not
She hates me, Loves me, Breaks me, Fucks me
Forgets and moves on

Me and Mother Mary
Here to rock your world
Track Name: Rotten
You are the tainted virgin
Your purity's a mask
Just another parasite
You take but never ask
Lead your sheep, those spineless sheep
Puppets on your strings
Cover your insides in white-out
Hide your twisted springs

Your core is rotten why don’t you peel off your skin
and let the whole world stare within
I don’t know where to begin...
Your core is rotten why don’t you peel off your skin
Comes bleeding out and cracks a grin
I don’t know… I don’t know…
My perfect sin!

Wear your crown of lies
They all bow down to you
Wrapped around your finger
Bound there by fear and glue
I gave you my heart
A toy for you to break
Know the "f" in fuck you is there because you’re fake

You live in a dream…
…I’ll make your world a nightmare
Track Name: God Ticket
Heaven help us
Father fuck us
Kneel and take your sin
Preaching lies
Collecting flies
On the shit you are within

Lies to create fear
Mindless sheep to steer
Nothing is ever clear!
Ignorance or disbelief
God killed himself through greed
Never practice what you preach!

Drop your morals
Swear you’re loyal
Hide behind your cross
Hypocrisy
Is all I see
Your true meaning was lost
Track Name: American Dream
You’ve got a bullet with my name on it
Would a suit and tie change the game
The Devil on your shoulder is a dollar bill
The Angel is a stain
You're simply unGodly gullible, strategically tricked
Resign to stand in line as a statistic
‘Cause respect and stupidity’s the same fucking word
You’re pointing fingers, You haven’t learned!

We will raise our kids on fear and nicotine
Stereotypes and the all American dream
We will raise our kids on fear and nicotine
Stereotypes and the all American Dream

You live your life as an imitation of someone who can only talk cash
Your morals and your standards biased on marketing ploys
I bet you gave them a nice laugh
You’re simply biodegradable, mechanically fucked
Hard up, strung out and star struck
‘Cause Hero & Hypocrite’s the same fucking word
Still pointing fingers, Still haven’t learned!

I’m all American
The All American
Raise up you all American Shit!
Brought up in a corporate world
Where we are taught the price of everything
And the value of nothing
Where dreams go… to die!
Track Name: Clock Strikes
Tell me
Another lie to keep me here
Sell me
On those lies but it’s become so clear
Run, run, run
Got nowhere to go
Run, run
Got everything to lose
Run, run, run
Nowhere to go
Run, run
The Clock Strikes

Tell me
Am I guilty just to be?
Tell me
Is it only jealousy?
Run, run, run
Got nowhere to go
Run, run
Got everything to lose
Run, run, run
Nowhere to go
Run, run
The Clock Strikes

You know it’s about you, I did it without you

Can’t control me!
Can’t control yourself!

And now you wish you were someone else.
Track Name: Rosie's Secret
Needles drag down me
I know it’s wrong yet I can’t explain why
Trying not to look
I focus on serrated hope
A grated escape
I’d cry it, if I knew the word

Frame your lies and hang them
Museum-like, I’m for display
And Rosie’s motor writes the soundtrack
Hides the whispered “help” amongst the grey

And I will never tell you Rosie’s secret
Or I shall be buried in the flames

No…I never wanted this…
No…I never asked for this…
Track Name: The Bottom
Well here I am
Just stuck with you
Stuck at the beginning
You had to go and cross the line
And it made me feel
So dead inside
Well it picks me apart
And it leaves me for dead
It’s all because of you

Tried to reach the top, Fell to the Bottom
I want to, I tried…
Want to turn back, It’s too late now
I want to…I tried!

Stuck In my head
You had to go and cross the line
And it made me feel
So dead inside
Well it picks me apart
And it leaves me for dead
Well it’s all because of you…

Tried to reach the top, fell to the Bottom
I tried to reach the top!
Want to turn back, It’s too late now
Want to turn back, I can’t turn back
Tried to turn back but it’s too late now…

No, I never wanted this
No, I never asked for this

And I never wanted it at all
Track Name: Six Feet Over
Leave me plugged in with no surprises
Incubated with no surprises
Gave it all to a world that’s breath-taking
Three feet to my left mistakes in the making
It could all change with the pull of a trigger
Kiss or an ego trip
Leave me plugged in and humiliate me
I’m six feet over mistakes in the making

I’d second guess the other me
Cause he'd love to kill the time
Leave things as they were
I’ll poison all I hate in me
Don't think he’d mind
Leave things as they were

Wake up! Another day
Fresh holes still bleed the same
As I walk through a world not worth saving
Fueling the fire, constantly hating
Burn it all down so I feel bigger
Live in ignorance
Swallow the dose
Alleviate me
Six Feet Over everything breaking

And It keeps on coming back…
Track Name: Inside You
Chained up, leashed, hidden from my eyes
Incubated by sex, pills, and lies
Cut the strings from me muffle out my cries
As I fall from grace I am consumed by flies

Write me off as someone you can use
Write me off as someone you can abuse
If it’s too much than give me something to choose
If I meant nothing than I’ve got nothing to lose!

Where did it go where could it be?
My love for you, my love for me
How was I too blind to see?
All the little things you were doing to me
…and him, and him, and him.

I felt good inside you
I hope this knife does too…
Track Name: Black and Blue
I cannot believe that this has come true
To think that there was a time this was the only thing I knew
Staring into discolored eyes
I see insecurities and a life…
A life of living lies!

I build it up so it falls harder when it comes tumbling down
I feed the fire ‘till there’s nothing left to burn but the ground
It’s true what they say
“What goes around does come around”
…yes it does
You can try to pretend
But in the end
Your true colors will shine though
And you’re all… You’re Black and Blue

I just live for the pain
The thought of death only keeps me sane
It might seem a little odd
When my life is in my hands I feel…
I feel as big as God!
