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: 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: 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"

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."

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

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.
