Track Name: Jonestown, 1978
i never thought id have to sing this fucking song. even looking back, removed from it all. the wound still burns, the flesh it smells like the ultimate betrayal. yet you dont even hear the question remains. so can you tell me why is it this way? do you think that youre a god? theres no one left to save you now. why do you think you can act this way? stabbed in the back, and all i can say is too late to try. i decide too late to try, so nevermind. you will fall faster and faster each passing second. lost in isolation in an act of desperation. in an act of desperation you ended it all. so can you tell me why is it this way? do you think youre a god? theres no one left to save you now. why do you do this shit? why do you act this way? stabbed in the fucking back and all i have to say, without us to catch you you will soon begin to feel the pressure building around you, will be hard to overcome. youve thrown it away, all that can protect you. its too late, some things were meant to stay the same. its too late, some things will never change. in the cracks of the earth we will find your moral compass. thrown away because you couldnt bear the brunt of it. you coulndt bear the guilt from the destruction that youve caused. i could never quantify living such a lonely, disposable life.
Track Name: Hook, Line and Sinker
youve lost your way, latching on to stagnant waves. in this sea of incompetence, were trudging through this tide of shit. the taste is stale. this raft you built with false ideals will soon begin to fail. well rise above, this tide of mediocrity. gasp for air, while others stare, consequentially. dilute the truth, these waters black once ran so blue. so make your move, were watching you and soon youll see. still water runs deep. okay okay, well try turn the other way. but you wont wash away, you live this lie that you tell yourself each day. so what can I say? hopped up on high hopes cant you tell what you need most? hopped up on high hopes youre fucking jaded, what a joke. hopped up on high hopes cant you tell what you need most? a reality check. youre waiting for your big break, im waiting for the day, when we can get our scene back. this needs some fixing but, i dont know where to start. lets begin at the heart. time to bite back, time to bite back. its safe to say, youve lost your way, now time has come to take it back. time to bite back, time to bite back.its safe to say, youve lost your way, now time has come to take it back. delusions of relevance fill your day and night. and no one confronts you to put up a fight. delusions of relevance dominate your head. youve lost your grip on what is real, ignoring whats been said. and if you took a step back itd all become so clear. validity you laugh at as you cover up your ears. regurgitate the past, perspective that you lack. its fucking over, fucking done. now time has come to take it back. facilitate the great charade. you have become everything I hate.
Track Name: PaperWeight
i know ill never feel like i fully belong. but when i look around, all i see is that the people around me have too much pride in their fucking nine to fives. letting suits and ties define their lives, but that just dosent suit me. i am more than a job, more than just a degree. the last thing that ill do, is let these things define me. if i am one of them, then ill just up and leave. these will not overcome, and in no way define me. wait, before you close the door you need to take a step and wait. because you jumped the gun, i must say, the people around me have too much pride in their fucking nine to fives. letting suits and ties define their lives, but that just dosent suit me. so take those preconceived notions and shove them down your throat, because i am not one of them. with these past four years all i can say is that ive learned myself. and i will not be confined to this four by four shell you call a home. for you its an end, for me its a means to something more, a means to what i love. right here in front of you is where i am alive. i am more than a job, more than just a degree. the last thing that ill do, is let these things define me. if i am one of them, then ill just up and leave. these will not overcome, and in no way define me.
Track Name: Brave New World
nothing can be said about the way that you led us to our own demise. hypnotize with the words youve said. and in the end, ill take much comfort in knowing that you wont survive. to my surprise, its imminent. youll soon be dead. how long could we believe these lies. spoon fed this shit so many times. a blindfold strapped across our map dont let them run your fucking lives. so let the shit, just hit the fan. well start this world all over again. so let the shit, just hit the fan. restart this world. you keep feeding us this fear, year after fucking year. make us think were on the brink, think were on the brink. but if we we all just look away, purge the words you say wed realize we wont sink. pomp and circumstance will surely drag you in, but all they do is spew the shit. all of these twists and turns,cant understand how you could be so damn cold. sooner or later it will all begin to change. the lies you spread, the facts you bend our future seems so grave. so let the shit, just hit the fan. well start this world all over again. so let the shit, just hit the fan. well start this world all over again. so let it all come to an end. well start this world all over again. so let it all come to an end, restart this world. you keep feeding us this fear, year after fucking year. make us think were on the brink, think were on the brink. but if we we all just look away, purge the words you say, wed realize we wont sink. living by statistics makes me fucking sick. portraying a bleak future filled with dread. leave it all up to the floating heads to tell us how to feel and make it all seem real. pour gasoline on the flames. theyve got you right where they want you. they do they do. they got you right where they want you. watch it burn. theyve got you right where they want you. they do they do. they got you right where they want you.
Track Name: Blindsided
with this flame that just burnt out, its so dark that none of us can see. and the blow that you just took, makes it harder for all of us to breathe. this makes it all come crashing back, to this life we lead, so what are we to do? but brace ourselves and take a step to stand behind you. this makes it all come crashing back, to this life we lead so what are we to do but take a step, and please just know, that we are there for you. if you need someone to turn to know that we are there for you. to be thrown into this fire at the age of 23 you showed us all just how much stronger we could be. this is something to admire the strength that we can see. you showed us all how to believe. you showed us how to believe in our selves. if i could only be half as strong as you, to come on out on top after all weve been through. things may have broken down, but you built them right back up. you may have bent, you didnt break. things may have broken down, you built it back up, the weight you were able to take to be thrown into this fire at the age of 23 you showed us all just how much stronger we could be. this is something to admire the strength which we can see you showed us all how to believe. find a way to get out of this cause nobody deserves this shit.
a way to get out of this ill (and even though it rough). ill try to find a way to get out of this i never thought itd be like this. a way to get out of this cause no one deserves this shit. losing the one you were closest with, i never thought itd come to this. when things appeared to be falling through, but you became the glue. the glue, that held the pieces all together now. the glue, and for this i wish youll show me how. to have the strength that can pull me through anything. you are an inspiration. you kept it all on track and for that, you are an inspiration. the weight you were able to take, strengthens you every day. so know that we are there for you.
Track Name: Speechless
whats left behind, a wallet and id, one final word to say, just “sorry.” that its come to this, brings brunswick to its knees. this town filled with anger. now youve got nothing to say, if you could watch him die tonight, do you think that would be alright? televised, your convicted crime. all of your hatreds well deserved, swallowing all that you have earned, trading in everything youre worth. in this world thats spinning, your arrogance will cause a break. and when youre left alone, that break is hard to shake. in this world thats spinning, your arrogance will cause a break, and when youre left alone, that break is hard to shake. cant find a way to comprehend how someone can be so senseless. finding out who you are can be so fucking hard. consumed within yourself and i can tell youre nothing special. and when you push and you pull something is bound to break. still youve got nothing to say. leaving everything you were brought up with, laughing at someone you barely know. where is your conscience when you need it most? and when you wake up youll still have nothing left to say. cant find a way to comprehend how someone can be so senseless. finding out who you are can be so fucking hard. consumed within yourself and i can tell youre nothing special. and when you push and you pull something is bound to break. why would you pry so fucking deep? you had no reason, your life is cheap. your fucking life is cheap. but you dont seem to see the reality you share with me, everything comes at a price. you dont seem to see the reality you share with me, and you dont know whats wrong or right. my friend once told me that people with hearts dont break them this easy. your reputation will forever be changed.
Track Name: Spagett's Revenge
SPAGETT!
Track Name: Fight of Your Life
If I could make it out alive, well then surely I would change.
But knowing I could make it better, getting all my shit together
Gives me hope for better days.

But I'm still waiting for the day
Where I could turn it all around, and make this shit okay.
And I'm not going to give up, but I'm still waiting for the day.
I've still got a lot left to say.

All I need is an opportunity to take back whats mine.
Break free of these chains, fucking leave it all behind.
And there's a part of me, that feels like I won't breathe past 23.
But I'll get up on my own two feet, then you will see.

Break free of these chains that have a hold of me.
Up and leave this cold dark place.
With all the shit I've seen, I've learned to savor the better things.
Every single day.

And I'm not going to give up.
I'm still waiting for the day
Where I could turn it all around and make this shit okay.
And I'm not going to give up, no not today.
I've still got a lot left to say.

With every turn and every bend,
Another wound that I must mend.
It never ends.

Shoulders shake, questions raised.
Will we ever find our way?
You can't see clear with bloodshot eyes.
But I know we'll be okay.
I'm just waiting for the day
Where I can look back and say that I survived.

Never giving up.

And it's safe to say that I'm not going away.
And it's safe to say that we are here to stay.
And it's safe to say that we're not going away.
So hold on tight.
Track Name: The Fear of Failure
you need to open your eyes up to see this fallacy. all this talking, fucking talking, about what we think could be. fantasizing while ignoring this reality. its time to take charge, take action and see what things could be. cause were all capable of living our own words. but so few take the risk, drown in the herds. a lack of motivation bleeds with apathy. dont even try to burn the day away with me. and the fear of failure will always tailor your aspirations if you let it. and the fear of failure will always tailor your aspirations. so put your money where your mouth is or put it off another day
its such a shame. you need to get your shit together
dont put it off another day its such a waste. take a look around you take a look around
a few more years and you'll be in the ground. take a look around. living in action rather than thought ignoring the detractors and all that they have taught. were breaking free of what we used to be. part those branches and now we can see. were moving toward clarity. the maybes and the mights, they turn to lefts and rights. its time to break the cycle.
its time to break the cycle.
running around in circles.
its time to break the cycle
Track Name: Safety Net
this one goes out to those who have "figured it out" words wevebeen force fed time and time again. and its true we cannot see, how small we really are. everyone can agree, dont leave it up to me and have me figure it all out cause no one has the key to show us what its all about. its ever expanding, in every direction. its limitless, it has no end. get out of my head, cause im sure all the supid things you say are better off just left unsaid. just lay it to rest because these ideas you push on us are something that we wont become. when you think your life, in perspective of it all were just so fucking small. and one can, understand our insignificance they smirk with confidence. I think that time has come to just renounce your hate for a different groupe that believes in the same things under a different name. sore losers never win. what you believe, its just a hope to know the truth, start to cope. patience is wearing thin. Its not too late to change your ways. start today. fuck everything they say, and live for now. cause no one knows the truth until you take your final bow. its all a construct of the human race that they want us to believe. they take our money time and hope, and promise us reprieve. they take our money time and hope, cashing in on our grief. fuck everything they say. fuck everything they say and live for now. ive been waiting for you to show your face, its been a long time coming. renounce your faith. i hate what youre becoming. such a decent mind, dont let it go to waste
