Track Name: Good Intentions, Wrong Direction
Feel like your life’s always under attack?
Do what you must, don’t ever look back.
They say it’s for love, I say its for spite.
Take another fucking pill, it will make you feel alright.

Sometimes you’re giving it your all,
You try try try but you’ve got the underhand.
Sometimes you’re giving it your all,
Done everything you can but they never understand.

What’s the point of tryin’ to be so cool?
If I’m gonna end up bein’ like you?
So I hear you don’t like the way I dress,
Well I don’t like you at all, I must confess.

Sometimes you’re giving it your all,
You try try try but you’ve got the underhand.
Sometimes you’re giving it your all,
Done everything you can but they never understand.
Track Name: Faustian Bargain
Blackest of nights, chills my heart,
felt his presence right from the start.
Who will be first, who will he take?
Who will he drag to a fiery fate?

Van starts to smoke and the engine dies,
From the darkness we hear his cries,
While were gone, try to keep your cool,
Never mind those eyes that are watching you.

No sir, I dont want to die tonight,
Yes we will put up a fucking fight,
Demon powers this hell hound holds,
The Beast he wants to eat our souls.

Race through the darkness, we found his lair,
Reeks of death and screams of terror,
human remains, these lives were lost,
eternal life comes at a cost.

Take any weapons that you can find,
we must get back to the van in time,
our greatest fears are coming true.
Three have been taken, "what can we do?"

No sir, I dont want to die tonight,
yes we will put up a fucking fight,
Demon powers this hell hound holds,
The Beast he wants to eat our souls.

I dont want to - DIE TONIGHT
You dont want to - DIE TONIGHT
We dont want to - DIE TONIGHT
I wont let you - DIE TONIGHT

Bloody and tired we must live another day
found the others much to my dismay
torn in two and ripped apart
my closest kin stabbed through the heart.

I grabbed the nearest, a machete,
his life must end, a final deed,
I think I hear him coming, I'll take him by surprise,
That's when ill hit him, right between the eyes!

No sir, I dont want to die tonight,
yes we will put up a fucking fight,
Demon powers this hell hound holds,
The Beast he wants to eat our souls.

I dont want to - DIE TONIGHT
You dont want to - DIE TONIGHT
We dont want to - DIE TONIGHT
I wont let you - DIE TONIGHT
Track Name: Nothing to See Here
Sixteen minutes, your entire life’s gone by,
Reel from the hearth attack, you wonder why,
Nobody deserves your full trust,
Cast your vote, because you must.

Cause you’re in a bad situation.
Cause you’re in a bad situation.
Cause you’re in a bad situation.
Innocent party of a victimless crime.

He buys her flowers, and takes hers too,
Convincing lover, will do anything for you,
He’s got a temper, just you wait,
Hopeless romantic, tempting fate!

Cause you’re in a bad situation.
Cause you’re in a bad situation.
Cause you’re in a bad situation.
Innocent party of a victimless crime.

Sixteen minutes, your entire life’s gone by,
Reel from the hearth attack, you wonder why,
Nobody deserves your full trust,
Cast your vote, because you must.

He buys her flowers, and takes hers too,
Convincing lover, will do anything for you,
He’s got a temper, just you wait,
Hopeless romantic, tempting fate!
Track Name: Port O'Coffee
Oh I picked her up, said she's going my way,
Help a stranger out, This wasn't my day,
What harm can you do, we've got reputation,
Without you is like no masturbation, Coffee!

Take it any way, in any variety,
Drank too much, and now I gotta pee,
But it's alright cause I gotta make room,
Sixteen cups, I'll have the shakes soon.

I can't start my day without a cup,
So brew me a pot and I'll drink it up,
Java in my life, like a sultry whore,
Coffee is the cure and I only want more.

Everyone knows the power it gives,
Gotta keep it hidden from those greedy kids,
Didn't stunt my growth or my intellect,
Buried in beans upon my death.

Craving the buzz of my daily dose,
Brown is the colour that I love most,
I don't care if it's an ethical blend,
Hit it straight to my veins, needle in the rear end.

COFFEE!
COFFEE!
COFFEE!
COFFEE!!!!
Track Name: Ignorance is Strength
You look at me and say I've had too much,
Truth be told, I never felt much better,
Telling me that I must dress like this or act like that
No sir I won't change, I won't change and that's a fact.

Conform or we're gonna run you outta town
Conform or we're gonna, we're gonna, run you out.
Conform or we're gonna run you outta town
Conform or we're gonna, we're gonna, run you out.

Rude boy better watch what you're saying
All this questionin' when you're better off prayin'
They want to keep you under their control
Watch it or you'll end up buried deep in a hole.

Conform or we're gonna run you outta town
Conform or we're gonna, we're gonna, run you out.
Conform or we're gonna run you outta town
Conform or we're gonna, we're gonna, run you out.

Regulation will surely quell inspiration,
When it burns will you die from inhalation?
Dont just stand there like you dont see nothing at all
Gotta stand up and be the one to answer the call.

Conform or we're gonna run you outta town
Conform or we're gonna, we're gonna, run you out.
Conform or we're gonna run you outta town
Conform or we're gonna, we're gonna, run you out.
Track Name: Not Around
You called me out,
What about the early years?
It`s just the way it’s gotta be.
You tried twice now,
Maybe it’s not enough,
But you’re just caught up in defeat.

Where now?
It’s no conspiracy,
Just blame another one on me.
Ideals,
Kick ‘em right out the door,
Let me just think and drink in peace.

Whoa-oh we’re better off when you’re not around!
Whoa-oh we’re better off when you’re not around!
Whoa-oh we’re better off when you’re not around!
Whoa-oh we’re better off when you’re not around!

Time drags on,
So many wasted years,
Is this who you’re destined to be?
One last hope,
Some words go unspoken,
Take this one out all on your own.

And now you think,
“What should I have done?”
Let your regrets drag on and on.
Can’t be yourself,
Maybe it’s just enough,
You still can’t give up on her now.
Track Name: Brasser and the Business
Deception in the street, just another sin,
Betrayal of this kind comes from within,
Shattering dreams as I down this glass,
If I was you, I wouldn't be coming back.

Now I'm on the hunt, I've found your scent.
Through bloody torture you'll confess
With a heart like mine - you're the trap
Where you're goin' - won't be coming back

One last drink - our fate we can't deny
I owe you this time - an eye for an eye

I know your game - don't play me the fool
I wrote the book and own the school
but you've got moves, cuts like an axe
if I was you, I wouldn't be coming back.

As the brass hit the floor, I explode,
Give it to me baby, just one more,
From the back of the room, She attacks,
Where you're going - won't be looking back!
Track Name: What Say You?
What say you? Whatcha gonna do?
You're loggin' on, to respond to a review.
But your anonymous post, is probably the most,
troublesome sign, of the state of mankind.

If face to face, you'd probably replace,
all your malice and spite, and try to embrace.
But all of these trolls prove we're just animals;
all inches away from madness.

Why do I read what you say?
Your anonymous posts always ruin my day.
Why say the things that you do?
Your hidden blind rage corrupts my world view.

SO... What say you? Whatcha gonna do?
How bout trying to act just like you knew-
That a person would read all your words that exceed
any semblance of reasonable communication.

What say you? Whatcha gonna do?
I don't think you know the things you claim to.
You're so full of rage and trying to engage
in a meaningless fight and boast your infantile might.

I thought that we grew but I guess that's not true,
'cus behind a handle nothing's taboo.
Why can't you be civil instead of spouting off drivel.
I think you're all fucked in the head.

Why do I read what you say?
Your anonymous posts always ruin my day.
Why say the things that you do?
Your hidden blind rage corrupts my world view.

SO... What say you? Whatcha gonna do?
How bout trying to act just like you knew-
That a person would read all your words that exceed
any semblance of reasonable communication.
Track Name: Seeing Red
I'm seeing red, and getting fed,
Up with the game, is it in my head?
I'm seeing red, and starting to dread,
Having to fight, the glowing in the night.

I can see it on the walls,
And dancing down the halls,
It's circling all around,
It's right in-fucking-front of me!

I seize it in my claws,
Get it right under my paws,
But when I check I got it beat,
It's gone somewhere I cant see.

You think I wanna play?
You think I will obey?
This game you never tire of
Is something I can't win.

You're not playing fair,
Do you even care?
Will I ever win,
Or will this go on forever?

LASER BEAM SOCIETY
I NEED SOME VARIETY

I'm seeing red, and getting fed,
Up with the game, is it in my head?
I'm seeing red, and starting to dread,
Having to fight, the glowing in the night.

Do you see what's going on?
It's inside our home where it doesn't belong.
How do I fight this enemy?
It has no mass and burns endlessly.

You just sit there on your ass
While I try to disable the blast.
All alone, but I will not quit,
This red menace, I'll pounce on it!

I'm seeing red, and getting fed,
Up with the game, is it in my head?
I'm seeing red, and starting to dread,
Having to fight, the glowing in the night
Track Name: Moonlite
I can never make it up to you,
I can never get relief,
Bitter taste on my tongue,
I don`t want no grief.

You hated my sense of humour,
You hated my mentality,
Don`t sugar coat it baby,
It`s a bitter reality.

Whoa-oh, love under moonlite.
Whoa-oh, love under moonlite.
Whoa-oh, love under moonlite.
Whoa-oh, love under moonlite.

Take your time,
Take what you want,
Take me away,
Take time to breathe,
Hold it all against me,
I`m the exception I believe.

As I taste your bitter flesh,
As I taste your salty tears,
They`ll carry you away from me,
Along with all my fears.
Track Name: Outnumbered
Fading
Into
Poll-made torment
Chic catastrophe
Fight it
right through
I won't take your
bent democracy
Trapped inside this endless wool nightmare
I will make this sacrifice
Everything I stand for is shattered
This time I guess I'll play nice

Times up
Thrown them off but never press them down
Leave them in their tranquil resting place
Right there on the squalid ground
Times up
Throw them off but never press them down
Time to burn these mohair prison rags
Want to run them out of town

Fading
Into
Poll-made torment
Chic catastrophe

Fight it
right through
I won't take your
bent democracy

Now we do it once more again
rumpled pile of dreadful memories
will they notice, scold me and then
press them down does that mean I give in

Times up
Thrown them off but never press them down
Leave them in their tranquil resting place
Right there on the squalid ground

Times up
Throw them off but never press them down
Time to burn these mohair prison rags
Want to run them out of town
Track Name: Long Lost Sobriety
Grew up on this land,
You know he's quite the man.
He don't talk no shit,
He's got the scars to prove it.

His name's on the wall,
Its carved in every bathroom stall,
Down on his luck? No!
He don't give a fuck.

Long Lost Sobriety, a mistake he cant admit!
Long Lost Sobriety, you know he'll never quit!

So buy this man a glass,
and he'll give some advice,
Just never cut him off,
'Cause he won't ever get enough.

Give a man a fish,
You'll feed him for a day.
Pour this man a pint,
And let me drink my woes away.

Long Lost Sobriety, a mistake he cant admit!
Long Lost Sobriety, you know he'll never quit!
