Track Name: Debbie Gibson
People try to tell me every single day that my immaturity is what keeps getting in my way. I just want to live my life, I just want to have fun, just like Debbie Gibson did on VH1 – pick it up! Keep on trying to make me live under the gun, try to get me started up and get some motivation. Here’s a song for all you kids that don’t have any luck, trying to convince people that just don’t give a fuck. Well put down your skateboard and grab yourself a beer, here comes the anthem now everybody cheer. Break your knuckles, kick some ass, drink OE and smoke some grass, vandalize, terrorize, we won’t live a life full of lies! Keep on trying to make me live under the gun, try to get me started up and get some motivation. Here’s a song for all you kids that don’t have any luck, trying to convince people that just don’t give a fuck I just want to live my life! We won’t live a life full of lies! We won’t live a life full of lies!
Track Name: Sayonara
I got a pencil and a pad, trying to get down all these words that I had, these words I had inside a head full of lead, these thoughts that turned into words – these words I accidentally said to you that night, do you remember when we got into that fight? You poured your beer on me and slapped me in the face, and told me to go to hell… but I was already there.Well here it is, it's just me. I never wanted to lead you to believe that Im something that I’m not. But its OK, some other day I promise that we’ll surely cross paths again but until then Sayonara my friend. The best things in life are free, wish I had known that before you went out with me, you took my money and you spent it on your clothes, to look like everyone else that you know when you come to our shows – well its probably not polite to ask you all these questions but it's really not a question, more of a suggestion, about these guys that you date… The ones me and my friends love to hate, don’t waste my time. Well I’m trying not to care about these other pairs of stinky underwear, I keep on finding in your closet, in your room. When I know they’re not mine but that’s just fine because I know me and you are through, I guess there's only one thing left for me to do, I'll burn down your house and assassinate your friends and if I could I would do it again.
Track Name: Stop Whining!
Stop Whining: Jealousy is a colorful sin, it helps you to be what you’ve never been, though your skin colors red it makes you see green, you still act tough but I know what you've seen. Believe me it's OK to cry, no one can be the sane person all the time. Though you’ve betrayed me I’ll forgive you in time signature with a melody line. I’ve lost a little faith in humanity, with the pomp and the pride. The world’s quickly dying but instead of with a shout, with a whine. And all the words that we’ve said, have come together as the parchment bled. With all the stories and the lists of the dead but in them no solution is penned. Now everyone shouts disapproval but no one is willing to be at fault. If you don’t know who to blame how can you know who to assault? Judgment’s coming but which way will the pendulum fall?
Track Name: Note To Self
As the sun sets on another day in my life I take into consideration all these things in moderation; good things at times outweigh the bad ones, I never take for granted my situation because life’s too short to make excuses for the things that I wanted to but never could do. So I’m done with complaining, I’m done with the sighs after I control myself it’s time to simplify – decide – let the laziness die. I never could control myself my vices run awry. I’m always fucking drinking, I’m always fucking high! Before my time is over, I’d like to live my life. What has kept me on this long? As the night winds down raise your mugs once again, to everybody's innovation going with the wind and then upon this cheer filled with drunken resolve and a shit eating grin, lets break down the walls. We’ll say – Ha! To the voice of inability, Ha! To dependency, it’s killing me. It’s not the easiest thing but then who said that it was – in my life it’s time to take control! After I control myself it’s time – time to simplify!
Track Name: Stimulants & Depressants
Up and down all of the time, my motivation just left with that dime. Now there’s no more stress now, no more stress now, no more stress now. I keep trying to write it all up, I find the answer when I fill up my cup.Now there’s no more stress now, no more stress now, no more stress now. You shouldn’t push me, I’m not the person you think I am. I’m just looking for some loving and some understanding. I hope to God someone can point me in the direction I seek, with these stimulants and depressants.We buy the CD, DVD extensively. Where do we get the money? Thieving and robbery. No more stress now, no more stress now, no more stress now. You talking to me, seems to be extensively. You go away, shut your mouth and let me be. Stop talking to me now, talking to me now, talking to me now. Up and down all of the time, no more stress now, no more stress now, no more stress! Stop talking to me like that now, stop talking to me like that, stop talking to me now!
Track Name: Snake & The Mongoose
Snake To My Mongoose:You think you got your run of the place, I’m here to tell that you’re mistaken.Because the first chance I get I will snap your back with just one bite! Little Dahrzee told me from way up in the tree that you were there behind me and I saw you strike from a mile away, just like the way I killed Karait! Don’t you forget that I was always there behind you my teeth clench tighter and tighter – come up and dance with death! You snuck through the back, hiding behind the bath jar waiting to strike but I lunged and would not let go until I got thrown by the blast of the gun.I felt the hot hot heat and the red flash singe and realized what situation I was put in. The shotgun blast had cut Nag in two, now there’s only one more left to pursue. Because I was there behind you. Now is not the time to sing, help lay a trap with broken wing, into the melon bed to crush, all future threats they pose to us!Eye to eye, and head to head, this will end when one of us is dead! Turn for turn and twist for twist, hooded death has missed!
Track Name: Frisco
Frisco: Don’t bite off what you don’t intend to chew. I learned that lesson after dealing with enough of every time I try I’m only talking to myself – my words are wasted on him. What’s the point of faking arrogance when you can barely take control of your own common sense you know him as Frisco and now I do too, decidedly ruining everything dude! Ask him the direction that we’re headed, points his finger to the floor. His new wax job now contains my vacant stares. He doesn’t care about anybody but himself and its apparent that there’s no one here that he can trust choose well the path that you should take, if you’re mistaken it’s yours to live with. Fight your reaction there’s a price to be paid when he finds the direction lies 3 inches down from his chest. And his silence displays a sense of seldom felt emptiness You don’t explain it to me I think I get it, you wont do what you know is right and that’s pathetic, the worst thing is after all that you do, you still think that this is all about you.
Track Name: Virginia Street
Seven years after the wake up and everything’s been so good. I’d never take back these times, the friends that stuck through when I’ve fallen behind. And the same can be said about the company kept, fight the good fight until there’s nothing left and with distortion we’ll find a poetic line to make this all worth all the sweat and the time. Down on Virginia Street, where the hands are reaching out. There’s enough love here on a show night stomping your feet. I can’t tell what went right, if the show goes well then fuck it to hell, we’ll do it all again in a couple of nights.And I’m done talking all about that staple shit, all the shows we played and all the venues we hit but if one thing remains then put your fist in the air, it’s in the good times we continue to share. Down at the shed, that’s where we play, with a bottle in hand and a broken p.a. I don’t remember just why we stayed but I’ll never forget the memories made.Well this ain’t over yet, that’d be the time that I get upset because there’s no time to make and no show to play, and then I’ll just live like a regular stiff! These walls, these broken beams, they came to mean so much to me.If you want to roll with us then get it right: It’s a keg and a half downed on a Tuesday night. That’s just us, its for the show. That’s how it goes, that is how it goes.
Track Name: Butterflies
I see you called just to say you’re sorry, well don’t you know it’s much too late. There’s some times around that I’ve seen, you better turn around and walk away. You need a girl around, to fuck it up this time. I’m sick and tired watching things just die. Used to have such a beautiful design. I’m tired – I’m tired – so tired – so tired. I’m tired of chasing butterflies! Sometimes I love just to be alone, I’m sick of staring with my eyes closed. But now I see right through you, and I recall all the bad shit you do. You’re full of it, you hypnotize. You’re full of it! And I’m sick of all this shit!
Track Name: VBJ
Well here I am just trying to survive, but what’s the point when I know I’ll never make it out of here alive. Still the idea of giving up, I won’t let that cross my mind but it’s kind of hard when there is an expiration date on my current way of life. I know age takes it’s toll when you’re constantly one quart away from broke but can you really take it? Can you sit there and tell me that this isn’t worth it? Like you could just walk away and live your life out of contentment of a job you should’ve had years ago.Forget your contempt and the wrong things you used to never be able to (handle) Well I guess it’s OK for me to give in? What a great example that sets as an inspiration and a friend.What the hell, what the hell was I thinking?I never thought that my intentions were that guilty until now. I only wanted fulfillment of my endeavors, but my adventures - positively fundamental.What the hell, what the hell was I thinking? I guess it’s OK for me to give in
Track Name: Apocalypse Wow!
Here it comes! And not a day too soon! I think I’m paranoid the world will be ending – all establishment falling – everything we know crumbling. True, it would be a fitting end for the sins of our fathers and those of our own hands. First thing we’re all gonna need is guns to divide into warring sects of proud Americans and navigate the land in packs like Mad Max. In search of a new home, the sun always at our backs. A chance to start again without the centuries spent on hegemonic extension. Back to square one - try to make it right this time! I would gladly sacrifice this life of structured enterprise and might just figure out how to survive! No sides of the state to conform to, nobody left to disappoint you, all that won't matter anyway.I want to know how we would react, I wonder how much of our humanity would remain intact versus survivability? We’d skew the lines, justifying our actions by condemning the fall guy. What will we turn out to be? Every man for himself or a real community? And what good is a chance to change if not met, if nothing else it’s a chance for to reset. Here it comes and not a day too soon I think that’s the point that disturbs me. Watching panic in full scale and the thought of redemption would make me laugh.
