Ben W Originally heard on the shut it down comp and I must not have been paying attention the first time. Put that comp on again today and immediately headed to this page to buy the album. FUCK THIS IS GOOD HARDCORE.

THANK YOU, Can't wait to hear what's next.

crisecution Never have I experienced a show with as much heaviness and emotion as when I saw Amygdala in 2019 in my hometown. They absolutely KILLED it! Was not aware of them until I saw them that night and now I'm hooked. Thank you for the awesome show! Favorite track: We Exist//Yo Existo.

Born into abuse My question is Who takes the pill And then who prays to god That another child will bless their meaningless lives That another child will be born into abuse And then who gets the abortion And who stays traumatized And then who gets to be a mother And then who remains childless In fear of this world In fear that history Will repeat itself Will undo onto their child In fear that no matter what things will not get better In fear that the cycles will not stop here

Why can't i heal? When i close my eyes at night All i see is all of you I remember all the times you threw me to the ground I remember all the times you threw me against the wall Why can't i heal Where has life gone x2 Thinking about all those times i ever felt small You'd lose your control I can still feel the thorns in my back I can still feel the hospital bed

It takes a village It takes a village to raise a child But what happens when the village never cared about the mother There's no time No energy No money Unaware Drenched and drained No natural way in this unsupportive world The village never cared about the mother This is a crisis We can't expect to live as long as the rest 20 years less in life Its takes a village to raise a child but what happens when the village never cared about the mother This is a crisis We can't expect to live as long as the rest 20 years less in life What do you do when no one cares

I HATE TO SAY IT I hate to say it But i'm glad that you're dead Death has brought you peace But family is all we got no matter what they do to you right? We don't seek help We just hope things will change I hate to say it But i'm glad that you're dead Death has brought you peace Now i don't have to wonder if they were hitting you today I wanted to help you I wanted to take you away But family is all we got no matter what they do to you right We don't seek help We just hope it will change But it will never ever change

Semillas 01:24
SEMILLAS They tried to bury us They didn't know we were seeds They tried to silence us But you can't silence a mind that's free Assimilate procreate appropriate To a system that does not work for the marginalized The working class families The children in broken homes The lies the deceit This will keep them from growing Assimilate procreate appropriate to a system that does not work for the marginalized We learn to hate ourselves This keeps us from growing We learn to survive Our voices will soar forever One day the children will grow and they breathe in the stench that pollutes the earth And look around and realize all the gentrification that's taking place And realize that this land and this plan wasn't meant for our people They tried to white wash and destroy our identities You can't silence us

18 YEARS AND COUNTING Hope for better days Search for more lies To make em think im okay I don't want to be a burden to you my love And i don't think the last words in my head before i sleep should be I want to die So when will i ever heal if the memories will never go away My heart is always dropping My legs are always trembling And i feel sick Sick to my stomach that this is happening to me But i can't stop wondering Did i let this happen And what does healing look like to you it's just different for me It's gonna take time It's already been 18 years 18 fucking years and i'm still not fucking okay 18 years and counting

OUR BODIES, OUR CHOICE Abort with sadness Abort with grief Or abort with happiness and relief Because all that matters in the end Is that you abort for whatever reason you can You can grief and you can regret Or you can move on and just forget No one needs to know your reason No one needs to know that you cried You are valid Your request are too and no one can tell you what to do It's your body It's your choice No one can police your voice Keep it a secret Say it loud Say it so much that you're proud It's our bodies! Abort with sadness Abort with grief Or abort with happiness and relief Because all that matters in the end Is that you abort for whatever reason you can You can grief and you can regret Or you can move on and just forget No one needs to know your reason No one needs to know that you cried You look me in the eye and tell me that you don't give a fuck about me You'll ignore us You'll shame us And you'll say we deserve to die Spreading your lies to distort the image of the innocent And you'll say that we deserve to die because of your beliefs

WE EXIST// YO EXISTO If my body is a temple Then it was built from bricks of stress, cortisol and neglect Early in life have lead to its deformation Constant humiliation Constant belittling Constant ridiculing The banging on the walls never stopped A gradual path to self hate It has taken all this time to destroy that inner voice in my head It has taken all this time If my body is a temple Then it was built from bricks of stress, cortisol and neglect Early in life have lead to its deformation Constant humiliation Humiliate Belittle Ridicule Neglect Stress Self-hate Don't stigmatize Just realize We exist Yo existo I am not weak I am not crazy

BPD versus me One minute of Silence leads two weeks of uncertainty Staying silent while I'm screaming on the inside i'm on the borderline of my demise I can't get a grip A hold on my life, A hold of my feelings I'm living for this disease, I can split on everything I love I feel everything. All at once, All the time Overreact and over exhaustion My heart and my mind will never agree Fear of abandonment It's impossible to trust anyone, Living in fake happiness I'm unhappy with you but it's not your fault Heart and mind Won't agree BPD versus me Fear of abandonment It's impossible to trust anyone, Living in fake happiness I'm unhappy with you but it's not your fault

I WISH UPON A SHOOTING STAR I wish upon a shooting star That my mind would be fixed And I wish upon a shooting star That the memories would die Get me out of this hell Trapped in my own sorrow Trapped in the past Please let me forget That I'm already dead I wish upon a shooting star that my mind would be fixed And I wish upon that shooting star that the memories would just die Trapped in my own sorrow Trapped in my own past Please let me forget The way the killed me that night Trapped in my own sorrow Trapped in the past Please let me forget the way that he touched me and left me for dead The next morning I woke up crying For no reason I couldn't understand I was just a child And that's when the stress begin That's when the nightmares began to take over my life That's when the nightmares began And that's when the stress began and ruined my life I was only a child I didn't understand Crying for no reason, no reason at all. Now we rise! We will take back what's ours! The lives we always deserved! We have control over what makes us mad. We have life after rape X2 We are alive! We will rise
