Track Name: Stay
Why did you go when I wanted you to stay / when your not beside me you always seem so far away / understanding
moments where you need to be free / but of all the things I want I never wanted you to leave / time keeps slipping all
around us / I wish it would stand still / world keeps moving even faster / never time to do / all the things we need to
do now
Track Name: Next Time Around
29 years & an ocean of beers & more songs than a bird can sing / broken dreams & empty pockets & dirty diamond
rings / a pile of cigarettes & enemies have done enough to put me in the ground / guess I'll be seeing you around
next time around, gonna make a difference / next time around, gonna make a change
next time around, gonna make a difference / next time around, gonna do the right thing
Track Name: Fuck The Neighbors
We don't really bother you, your just being jerks / how's it really our fault you gotta go to work / say your gonna call
the cops, your being absurd / I hope that right now you can hear every word / fuck the neighbors / all you ever do is
bitch and complain / say our crazy music is driving you insane / your not really reasonable, your obviously absurd
I hope that right now you can choke on every word / fuck the neighbors
Track Name: Sick Friend
Sick friend well I'm a lazy cain / there's not much hope for this dying cause / you'd just be wasting your time / cause
I just spent my last dime / on the bottle that's gonna get me through the night / I've been working at the Burger King
I've been flippin damn burgers all fucking week / I'm gonna quit my job when the paycheck finally comes / know I'll
be doing alright / when the liquor store sign is in my sight / I'm gonna get me a bottle to help me through the night
(chorus) / I've been working for the bitch down the street / I've been painting damn houses all fucking week / I'm
gonna quit my job when the paycheck finally comes / know I'll be doing alright / when the dollar bills are in my sight
I'm gonna get me a bottle to help me through the night / & when I'm all alone / & I was having fun / & there was no one
there to tell me, that I was doing wrong / the devil came to me / he said I see what you see / he said I can tell you it
won't get any better / he said I'll make you feel / the way you want to feel / he said that I can make it better / but I said
(chorus) / I've been working hard, I didn't get much sleep / I've been diggin damn ditches all fucking week / I'm gonna
quit my job when the pay check finally comes / know I'll be doing alright / when the liquor store sign is in my sight
I'm gonna get me a bottle to help me through the night / (chorus)
Track Name: Suburban Perfection
I live alone in suburban perfection / & I just don't fit in / surrounded by your southern religion / I'm my only friend
living in the land of hypocrisy / I'm finding it hard to swallow all your lies / so I don't even try / we're shadowed in
the rumor of opportunity / there’s piles of money from sea to shining sea / just not for you & me / (chorus)
everywhere I go I get looked at like I'm crazy / even though it's your structure driving me insane / I'm not the one
deranged / there's so many problems and too much confusion / so I just get a new tattoo to hide / a deeper pain
inside / (chorus) / all hope is lost and the worlds upside down / it's true the ones you trust are the ones that hurt
how can it get much worse / better watch your back cause the streets are filled with fear / something's wrong when
one kid kills another / so why destroy each other / (chorus)
Track Name: Love Of The Living Dead
She love's me, she loves me not / it makes no difference, there's a part for her / in my world / in my world / heart
casts shadows on the mind / clouding judgment that rewinds / me to a time when I still believed in people / I am
just a zombie, in my veins there is no feeling / I step back and watch unamused / while someone else is living my
life / it's not what it seems / I think that I am stuck in someone's sick and twisted dreams / chorus / just when I
thought I'd fallen from grace / human race was a disgrace / felt love so strong that I could taste / and I walk amongst
the living / I am not a monster, wasn't this way by design / guess that I've been fucked over just / one too many
times / there's nothing left / to cause me harm / so put my broken soul to rest and bury me / bury me in your arms
Track Name: On My Back
I went shopping in a garbage can / found two moldy heels & a rubber band / my life needs a commercial break /cause the story's too much for me to take / my dreams are always ended when I wake / well I'm on my back but at least I'm looking up / I was charged with unarmed robbery / it was labeled a criminal mockery / I set out to rob a gas station / with some panty hose & a water gun / couldn't bring myself to harm anyone / well I'm on my back but at least I'm looking up / I'm looking up at the grime on the dirty streets / looking up at the bottom of peoples feet /looking up at the residence where I can't live / looking up at the sky the picture's grown too big / my troubled life seems insignificant / well I'm on my back but at least I'm looking up
Track Name: Again Again
Again again I run away again / this time is different I swear I swear / I promised myself that I'd find my home / there’s something out there waiting for me / not another day older till I fall asleep / so I'm wide awake till I'm back where I belong / my life / my death / my heart / my head / my words / my breath / not anyone but me / crooked smile, broken teeth / I only tell myself what I wanna believe / and I believe that I'm doing ok / I've broke a million hearts one by one won't say I'm sorry till I feel I'm done / so put away the past and pray for another day
Track Name: Scum Of The Universe
Depending on the probability of reaching out across the universe & finding other life forms with abilities to reason &communicate & respond telepathically allowing us to multiply was purely out of sympathy & then with our technology defending insecurities we blow your fucking planet into bits
Track Name: Thinking Of You
Take a bike ride in the springtime / surrounded by the butterflies / I daydream that you will be mine / then I crash into a beehive / I get mentally deprived thinking of you / I get all swelled up inside thinking of you / I was nearly stung alive thinking of you / take a walk out in the sunset / up against the rough shoreline / I thought I could hear you calling / I look up & then I fall in / I nearly drown thinking of you / got my head up in the clouds thinking of you /when they put me in the ground I'll be thinking of you / take a ride out in my car / think about the words we said /thought I saw a shooting star / then it hit me in the forehead / I got teardrops in my eyes thinking of you / I lose my mind thinking of you / & when I die I'll be thinking of you / & I can't function in society / what's wrong with me / I never really comprehend / don't understand / why must I be this kind of man / who always dreams / I'm living in a land of make believe / I'm thinking of you / & wishing you were here with me / take a walk out in the traffic / feel the breeze from cars gone by / I just wanna check the mail / turn around & then I'm nailed / I'm in intensive care thinking of you / I've got this vacant stare thinking of you / nothing else can compare to thinking of you
Track Name: Don't Come Back
You were the one that went away / you were the one that went to town / you had to make your money / by laying your body down / now you come running back to me / did you really think I could give you my sympathy / you come running back to me / did you really think it could be / all those nights I thought of you / all those tears that hit the ground / all that money that I spent / when I could not lay that bottle down / now you come running back to me / did you really think I could take you back that easily / you come running back to me / did you really think it could be / I trusted you / what a stupid thing to do / you said you were bored with me / you said I was bringing you down / you said you were tired of hanging out with my crowd / now you come running back to me
Track Name: Little Better
Broke as a joke & it's not too funny / when you ain't got nothing to eat / baby walks out & says see ya later /ain't got no food in my 'fridgerator / sick of the shit & your all out of money / & your luck has just ran dry / bills keep falling like heat seeking rockets / I can reach right through the holes in my pockets / I'm living on broken down / bring me some company cause I'm / tired of wallowing in my misery / bring me some company cause my / bags are packed and I'm moving on / going to a town called little better / it's on the way to happiness / five miles past broken dreams just before the city of it's ok / right before I get there my car breaks down / I'm stranded in the middle of confusion /there's no one else around / I could have hitched a ride back to broken dreams / but I said I've already been there &it's not the place for me
Track Name: Get It Right
Going through the drive thru / trying to place my order / why can't you ever / get it right / I know you work here / I know you hate it / that doesn't mean you can't / get it right / not trying to be rude / don't spit in my food / I just want you to /get it right / I know your job sucks / but it's not that complicated / now try real hard to / get it right
Track Name: Born Again
My parents raised me the best they could / somewhere along the line I came out misunderstood / growing up this way was never part of my plan / but it's a long strange road to becoming a man / I tried to do all the right things & made all the wrong turns / it's hard living with your mistakes but somehow you gotta learn / never gonna figure it out / what this fucking life’s about / I die over & over till the end / & in the morning I'll be born again / my parents were holy they were heaven bound / & playing rock n roll just wasn't allowed / so I stayed up nights glued to my headphones / but there was something lacking on the radio / so I picked up my guitar & started writing my own songs & it took a while but I finally found where I belong / I was never taught / to follow my dreams / so I gave up on them / but they didn't give up on me / thought it'd all be cool when I got out on my own / but trying to feed your kids takes on a weight of its own / slaved away for years while it ate at me / but I wasn't meant to burnout in some factory / if you wanna be happy you got to stick with what you know / if you follow your heart it will always lead you back to home
Track Name: Life 4 Sale
Say you wouldn't sell your soul / well you already have / for a few bucks an hour / your life is up for grabs / your doing shit that you hate / nearly every single day / you don't mind being bossed around / just as long as you get paid / work work work you dog / work you fucking dog / work work work you dog / be happy you got a job / what is my time really worth / I'm dividing up my life / I'll sell it to you by the hour / & for a discount price / there's simply no resisting / you'll do it till you die / cause it's an endless cycle of getting paid and getting by
Track Name: My Dreams
You've been hanging in the back of my mind / waiting for me / to realize that you were there / reassuring words are so hard to find / & I'm so confused / & I keep gasping for air / but now everything is so different / my life is not what it seems / feel so alone without you in my arms / but last night I saw you in my dreams / it had been so long since I had talked to you / & it felt great / to hear your ever loving voice / a million thoughts were racing through my head / one at a time / I think I made the wrong choice / but now my life is just so different / nothing is as it seems / feel so alone without you in my bed / but last night I had you in my dreams / I tried so hard just to get it right / time after time / but it never seemed to work / you made me feel like I committed a crime / a horrible crime / you made me feel like such a jerk / but now I'm gonna try to move on / things are looking up for me / you can come with me if you want to / or you can just hang around in my dreams
Track Name: Rock N Roll
Goodness gracious baby bless my soul / I was born to rock n roll / I'm gonna rock around in my rockin ways / I'm gonna rock around in my rockin days / goodness gracious baby bless my soul / I was born to rock n roll / I'm gonna rock around with my rag top down / I'm gonna rock around to the rockin sound / when I get old & lose my hair / I'm gonna rock around in my rockin chair / oh yeah oh yeah, one thing I believe in / goodness gracious baby bless my soul / I was born to rock in roll / I'm gonna rock around & rock out loud / I'm gonna rock around & rock out proud goodness gracious baby bless my soul / I was born to rock n roll / I'm gonna rock around, it's my rockin dream / I'm gonna rock around till my neighbors scream / when I get old & lose my hair / I'm gonna rock around in my underwear
Track Name: Safety First
Liquor in the liquor cabinet / guns in the gun cabinet / medicine in the medicine cabinet / keys on top of the television / god bless our hopeless youth
Track Name: One More Day
Just one more day to pretend there’s no pain / & that nothing is wrong with my life / can I make it till tomorrow living in this sea of sorrow / or will I be overcome by pain & strife / well I'm fed up with this world / you can blow it all away / work all night & sleep all day / they slander me at will & I can barely pay the bills / man there's got to be a better way when I think about tomorrow / & all the good times it might bring / I try not to get my hopes up / cause things just don't work out for me / I still try to see the positive / for whatever that may prove / it's always nice to keep your dreams alive / Wish You Weres through and through
Track Name: 6 Feet Under The Influence
Stumble through the graveyard late at night / if your not full of rum I won't take a bite / gonna make you scream make you one of us / I'm the only zombie at alcoholics anonymous / recently deceased / currently drunk / recently deceased / walking dead intoxicated / stumble through the graveyard late at night / if your not full of rum I won't take a bite / but your not a drunk zombie you wouldn't understand / I died with a beer can in my hand / stick with me baby / it'll be ok / my BAC is zero there's no blood in my veins / deceased & drunk / I'm all out of luck / don't worry baby cause I'm not too drunk to fuck
Track Name: Apologies
Hide a lot of skeletons in my closet / got a lot of memories that haunt my head / done a lot of things I'm not too proud of / there's been a lot of things that I shouldn't have said / sometimes I think I owe this world / a great big apology /just for being me / there's situations I could've done better / there's been times I was pretty damn good / there's been moments I could've tried harder / & there's been days I gave it all I could / sometimes I feel this world owes mea great big apology / just for giving up on me
Track Name: White Trash Joy Ride
We're out on a mission & we're out of control / some stolen beers & we're ready to roll / adrenaline's pumping with your friend by your side / all loaded up let's go for a ride / cruising the backroads movin fast / with the lights out it's a blast / pushing a hundred on a dare / we might die but we don't care / white trash joyride / without fear of consequence / white trash joyride / say goodbye to your innocence / sneak out of your bedroom late at night / down the hallway & your out of sight / roaming the streets while your parents are in bed / you know it's wrong but your still / sick of the bullshit
Track Name: Understood
We come from different backgrounds & we're different ages / we've been through different trials & tribulations /some know what it's like to live the good life / some know what it's like to sleep hungry at night / we can all come together & unite at the show / like brothers in arms we can let it all go / we might not agree on what's right & what's wrong / but we can all agree there's something wrong with this world / we're the wish you were understood / to the outside world all they see is no good / when you're making your own way there's always complications / we're just trying to make since of our situations / some see the light ahead & they know that there's hope / some gave up on life a long time ago / we've all got our share of problems & we're making it clear / we're not out to pass judgment on anyone here / we can come to grips it's a rise not a fall / we can stick together for the good of us all
