Track Name: 10 Minutes Away
The last nine minutes went so slow
without you we'd have nowhere to go
In a park under a tree, and I sure miss your company

You said you'd be here. Now I'm by myself the point was to not be by myself because
You said you'd be here. So please tell me why you're full of shit you're always so full of it

Well we all have busy lives
but its impossible to get things done when no tries
and i'm sick of doing the work when i'm met with zero compromise
I guess i'll go it on my own, I'd rather leave than stay and play this waiting game
your apathy just causes me pain
I guess I'll go it on my own. So long, fair well, enjoy the show, I'm going to sing these songs alone

You're a flake, but i'm a martyr
So keeping obligations keeps getting harder
I used to listen well, you used to be an awesome friend
But now we're happy living both as loners.

WE ALL WANT SOMETHING BETTER THAN THIS
Track Name: The Ballad of Addie Lass
Well listen to my story, about a girl named Addie Lass
You know she wanted to make difference. She wanted to change the world.
She asked for help from everyone she knew. She had plan, she had direction
But everywhere she went people scoffed and laughed in her face.

and this is what they said to her, they said
"Listen here, you dumb girl, you don't know shit about this here world
It'll eat you up, consume your soul, it'll make you wish you were never born
and you're better off like everybody else who smiles and nods and says they're doing fine.
You see your idealism is stale and false, we've heard that shit so many times and we've got better things to do
But little Addie Lass had heard enough, and she was ready to jump into action.

Little Addie Lass slit their throats and then she left them for dead.
She said "You never did deserve your life, you refuse to see the good inside
So rest your thoughts and rest your weary head."

Now little Addie Lass knew she had started something she could never finish.
Because the world was to filled with hate and greed and selfishness
but she was determined

She became a force to be reckoned with, across the lands and in our home towns
and everybody knew her name and face
She spoke of truth, with promise in her eyes and violence in her heart

Everywhere she went, people would either die or join her cause.
And soon, she thought to herself,
"This world might be a brighter place for us"

But her path of destruction only led to more sirens
and her followers were hunted and gunned down
But little Addie Lass held on to one great truth, and that's to do what you believe is right!

Now Addie Lass is on the run from all her enemies
Cops and Lawyers, politicians, churches. Even God himself can't strike her down
Track Name: WTF
Well you told me its going to get better, and you told me I'm gonna be fine
But your words are like nothing they dont reflect anything from inside
And what the fuck am I supposed to with that?
WHAT THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THAT?!?!?
we only talk when we have to and that doesn't seem right

My parents told me "son you can be anything that you want to be"
Although that was comforting, they never thought that i'd be what i'd be
But we've all done stupid shit. I'm pretty sure we all hurt someone else
And although I never intend to, i'm always hurting someone else
with no control or fear of consequence I'll only change what I have to and that doesn't seem right

Now I've gotta walk home with the rain coming down
I'm so angry i wanna yell and shout but i can't make a noise
the sound of doors slamming just echoes in my ears
it wasn't even fun while it lasted, at least not for me
but i guess bad things are bound to happen when you give in to self complacency
even the streetlamps are burning out. Even the streetlamps are getting burnt out
they cant even weather the storm

So we lie about it getting better, and we lie about it being fine
but our words are like nothing if they don't reflect anything from inside
And what the fuck am I supposed to do with that?
WHAT THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THAT?!?!?
we don't even talk anymore, and that doesn't seem right
Track Name: Buck (ass backwards)
Just sittin' on the couch
A safe distance from the audience
Just sittin' in the darkness
But touched by a strip of light
Just question my thinkings
And wondering why it ain't right

The world is buck ass backwards
Inside out and twisted all up
Money is in wrong place and so is government
Clowns are scary and so are mannequins

Just sittin' on the couch
Everyone's having a barbecue and I don't know what I'm doing here
But yesterday, I solved the problem of immorality
Of good and evil and all the things that are in between
So as I'm sittin' on the couch
The stroke of light that touched my eye has blinded me
and now I see

The world is buck ass backwards
inside out and twisted all up
Money is in the wrong place and so is government
clowns are scary, and so are mannequins
Track Name: Infomercial
I don't mean to be rude, but I wish you'd get the fuck outta my house and stop trying to sell me shit that I don't want
Its been a long damn week and my whole body hurts, especially my feet and you're making me stand
You said you wouldn't waste an hour of our time but you lied you lied you lied you lied you LIED
you wasted all of our time and i don't want to hear your voice, but your voice is the only thing i hear

You're in my house you're on the street you're everywhere that words can be
You're on my television screen you're everywhere that words can be
My brain is full my senses dulled you're everywhere that words can be
I want to rest without demands stop telling me what I need

I don't mean to complain, I know that I'm a spoiled prick
self righteous egocentric and always low on self esteem
I don't know why I can't buy in to the lives that my friends lead
but micro brews and dance clubs never were my thing

Well your message is quite clear,
and its nothing personal but we want you fucking out of here
We're doing more than our fair share and still we're trying to just scrape by
work is hard enough to come by and I don't think that I can afford to be alive
so stop wasting our time
Track Name: Broke
I'm broker than Broke!
Don't mess with me unless you're sure you want to see
A bitter pissed of side of me, I'm broker than broke!
Don't mess with me unless you're sure you want to see
A bitter pissed off side of me, I'm broker than broke

And isn't it so silly
that our society is full of such financial irony?
And isn't it so corrupt
that because of ATM fees I can't afford to take my last 20 bucks!

And don't you feel abused
when the man doesn't pay you enough to fix the holes in the soles of the bottoms of your shoes
I'd rather be dead
Because I'm so sick of eating ramen noodles, Campbell's soup, and wonder bread

I'm Broker than broke!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Track Name: REVENGE*
Once upon a time we used to be the best of friends, but now I hope i never see your ugly face again
You are a self-centered bastard only fending for yourself, and if it made you feel better you'd screw over your friends
You have no loyalty, no integrity, no decency on which to lay the ground beneath your feet
So hear me loud and clear. I've had about enough. And I will seek revenge on you by hurting those you love

When you sleep I hope you dream of friends and family
Cause I swear that if i breathe another breath they'll wake up dead on your doorstep
in a shallow grave

When I look into the eyes of those that you love, and those who love you
I'll feel no regret, and I'll feel no disgrace. I'll only feel the warmth of their blood spraying on my face
So for now I hope you're happy. I hope you're good and well. Because soon your friends and family will be rotting down in hell
and when I'm through with you, you'll wish you were there with them too

When you sleep I hope you dream of friends and family
Cause I swear that if I breathe another breath they'll wake up dead on your doorstep
then I'll deal with you

I'll burn out your eyes, cut out your tongue, sew your mouth shut and remove your fingers and toes
I'll render you sterile. I'll burn you with chemicals on your face and genitals.
Track Name: Mickeys
Its Monday afternoon and I ain't got nothing to do
Except sit on my front porch and drink a 40oz. of Mickeys
Its a big ol' world out there and it seems like everybody's workin'
for themselves or for someone else.

I had a house, I had a room, I had myself a thing or two
Then my paycheck started getting thinner, around here there ain't much work
On top of that some asshole banker though it'd be cool
to charge me extra for trying to use my own goddamn money
Is this a joke? are you for real? this broken system has no appeal
We weren't supposed to live this way, we were never meant to live this way

So here i sit and wonder why we fight and fight
for money, riches, power and the things we think are right in life
But nobody knows everything, we've learned this fact about ourselves
the only thing we know for certain is that this all is bologna
thin and floppy, only manufactured for the mass
only good with mayo or until you reach the age of 12
So now I see there's nothing left for you, there's nothing left for me
Track Name: Mo(u)rning Song
I hate everyone
You're all so fucking dumb
And when I see you on the street
I want to breakdown and cry cause the thought of sharing oxygen with your disgusting face
Makes me want to fly away and leave this place

I got home at 4am
You woke me up at half past 10
what the fuck is wrong with you?
My neck is stiff and tight
The sun is way to bright
And if you say "hello" to me I swear were going to fight.

Sing the Morning song
the Morning song
Don't wake me up to no alarm
Sing the morning song

Someone drank all my orange juice
My rage is breaking loose
If I had the energy i'd STAB YOU IN THE FACE
but i don't
So you can live
to wake me up and piss me off another day again

I don't wanna wake up before 1pm
I don't wanna write another song ever again
I don't wanna hear about your fucking day
you never have any good shit to say
I just wanna lay me head down to rest
oh my god that would be the best
Track Name: Hey Rudy!
Hey Rudy! sittin' on the couch
Hey Rudy! when you open your mouth you say
"I want food, I want food" yeah when you open your mouth you say
"I want food, I want food" but no one cares
cause you're fucking fat

Hey Rudy! sittin' on the couch
Hey Rudy! when you open your mouth you say
"I want more, I want more" yeah when you open your mouth you say
"I want more, I want more" but it'll never be enough for you rudy

Hey Rudy! sittin' on the couch
Hey Rudy! when you open your mouth you say
"I want a better world today, I want so many friends and lovers
I want a better world today and I want all of you to be my brothers
So lets take to the streets and fight the good fight" Oh oh you're so inspirational
but Rudy, you're still on the couch

Hey Rudy! sittin' on the couch
Hey Rudy! when you open your mouth you say
"I wanna go out, I wanna go out" yeah when you open your mouth you say
"I wanna go out, I wanna go out" but as soon as you're out you are runnin' home
Track Name: Pipe Dream
Fuck the environment, and fuck environmentalists
You know sometimes they really piss me off
Because they use plastic everyday
And I use plastic everyday
And it makes our lives much more easy than they would be otherwise

Fuck the right wing government, and fuck the left wing government
You know sometimes they really piss me off
They can never work with each other, and it makes all the people they work for suffer
So I renounce all party affiliation

Pipe dream anarchy is all that is left for you and me
So lets wash the walls and strip the paint
and grab a beer and celebrate
and we will live forever how we want

I've been trying to fit in with hipsters punks and college kids
And you know sometimes they really piss me off
Because none of them know what it means to be real, and find their identities in pre-packaged ideals
And feed their egos by condemning you and me

Pipe dream anarchy is all that is left for you and me
So lets wash the walls and strip the paint
And grab a beer and celebrate
And we will live forever how we want!
Track Name: Lights
Go turn off the lights
GO walk back inside
and please dont call the cops on us tonight

Its 11:42pm
and we're making bad music again
But music is all that we've got, its all that we've got.

So go, turn off the lights
GO walk back inside
and please dont call the cops on us tonight

Well we've got a whole lot to say
and that just doesn't happen everyday
But I can only be honest with myself when I sing
And I can only be honest with myself when I'm singing out loud

Go turn off the lights
GO walk back inside
and please don't call the cops on us tonight

The stars in the sky, are my only allies
As I sit here and scream, singing just to relieve me
from a long day of desperate attempts
but as soon as I find my peace
I see blue and red lights flashing
and megaphones blaring saying "hey! you kids!
It's time to go home so GO!"
