Track Name: Whiskey Shots
Whiskey shots to drown my soul
You know I'm trying to forget how to feel
Isolation claws at my eyes and the walls are closing in
Distant voices are hushed to a whisper not audible to most
The ashtray, it overflows yet I don't seem to care

Because my hands begin to tremble
I surely need my fix
I take that shot of whiskey upon my crucifix
A warm sensation comes over me and I dream my life away
A thought pops up inside my head:
I'll die another day

I'll go to sleep and then wake up and live that same old shit
I'll do my drugs until they are gone and then I will throw that fit
So for now I will just get high and when I run out I will just want to die
I'll hold my breath and wait for death and wish I was somewhere else

Because my hands begin to tremble
I surely need my fix
I stab the needle in the vein upon my crucifix
A warm sensation comes over me and I dream my life away
A thought pops up inside my head:
I'll die another day
Track Name: The Consumer
This morning I woke up and pissed away all my money
I bet that you probably did too
See there was a sale on something I didn't need or want
And now I'm haunted by the ghosts inside my empty wallet
I am a consumer and the advertising trapped me
The wrappers were so colorful and the deals just got inside my head
But then I got home a realized just what I'd done
I thought back could I really have been that dumb
I vowed that I would stop that moment
I don't even consume for my own enjoyment

Because those CEO's own me
Yeah those CEO's own me
Those CEO's own me
And I hate them so much

Everything I do and want is so very nonchalant because all I do is slave away recording my own decay by counting all the bills I make and living a life that's fake so someday I can live alone paying taxes on a home that I just can't afford... no I just can't afford it

Because those CEO's own me
Yeah those CEO's own me
Those CEO's own me
And I hate them so god damn fucking much
Track Name: Lady Mary Killigrew
Lady Mary Killigrew had a wicked pirate crew
She sailed across the english channel and fought through some epic battles
All the while they were chased by Mary's husband with such haste
Because he was hired by the queen to banish all the pirates seen
But when he left to do his job Mary hired a pirate mob
They stole a ship from the Germans
They sailed and sailed they were determined
They sold it to the Irish people but they knew it was illegal
So Lady Mary was arrested but no one knew she was protected
But when it came her time to die the queen and jury turned a blind eye
There must have been some back room deal cause this verdict just seems unreal
Out of the blue
Lady Mary Killigrew
Pirating across that sea
Stealing treasure from you and from me
Track Name: Columbus
When I was growing up I thought Columbus was a hero
Because we celebrated him every October
And in school they tried to make him out to be the man
But then I grew up and I did not understand
Why the fuck do we think he's the man?
He raped and tortured and stole across this land
He inspired others to do the same Pizarro thought it was just a game
So he enslaved all the people and then he called it Spain
He called it Spain

So fuck fuck fuck conquistadores
Raping women and breaking down doors
Here's to all the towns they set on fire
So fuck fuck fuck Hernan Cortez
And all of the fucking rest
They were just a bunch of dirty liars

Because they stole the land they stole the food
Killed most of the people enslaved them too
And then they called it saving the planet
Because you aren't even people
No you don't have a soul, you have no soul
Because I sent a letter to the queen telling her your all obscene
And now she thinks you are not human
Just savages an heart eaters

So fuck fuck fuck Hernan Cortez
And all of the fucking rest
They were just a bunch of dirty liars
So fuck fuck fuck conquistadores
Raping women and breaking down doors
Here's to all the towns they set on fire
Track Name: Insect
I am the insect
The one you call reject
Antennas probe at nothing
Wasting away
A slave to society
But I pretend to resist
I walk in this line and struggle to survive

Working for some greater good
Isn’t that what we are doing
Or at least that’s what we tell ourselves
So we don’t feel so bad
So bad

Well I take orders from someone
Who got their orders from someone
I don’t even know
Why should I trust them
But then again
I am the insect
The one you call reject
Antennas probe at nothing
Wasting away
A slave to society
But I pretend to resist
I walk in this line and struggle to survive

Working for some greater good
Isn’t that what we are doing
Or at least that’s what we tell ourselves
So we don’t feel so bad
So bad
Track Name: V
They say that life's a game and then they take the board away
Yes life's a game and then they take the dice away
But again, truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty
You need only look into a mirror you're full of fear
But I, just like god, do not believe in coincidences
And I don't play with those fucking dice
Oh no

So remember, remember the 5th of November
Of gunpowder treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot

It's the eve of revolution so please won't you dance with me
Because a revolution without dancing is no revolution to me
This country needs more than just a building
It needs hope and freedom for all
But you're never going to find all that freedom
On the shelves of the shopping mall

So remember, remember the 5th of November
Of gunpowder treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot

People should not be afraid of their governments
Yeah governments should be afraid of their people
So fill up your flask and put on your mask
And I'll see you in November

So remember, remember the 5th of November
Of gunpowder treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot
Track Name: No Such Thing
There’s no such thing as a hero
There’s no such thing as a con
So don’t you ever tell me what I’m doing is wrong
There’s no such thing as good
There’s no such thing as evil
There’s no such thing as better fucking people

We all suck
We’re all mean
We don’t work as a fucking team
We are greedy
We’re all lazy
Sometimes I think we’re all pretty crazy
But that would imply that sanity’s a real thing and it’s not

There’s no such thing as us
There’s no such thing as them
But division lines are drawn time and time and time again
There’s no such thing as light
There’s no such thing as dark
So let’s tear down these borders and go back to the start

We all lie
We all hate
But somehow we all think we’re fucking great
We all steal
We all fight
But somehow we all think we’re fucking right
But that would imply that being wrong’s a real thing and it’s not

There’s no such thing as heaven
There’s no such thing as hell
No gods or devils I hope that you can tell
There’s no such thing as saints
There’s no such thing as sinners
So don’t call me a loser cuz there’s nothing called a winner

We’re all stupid
We’re all hateful
And I think we are all pretty wasteful
We need help
We’re all crossed
Yes I think we are all very lost
But that would imply that there’s a real way to go and there’s not
Track Name: Tonight I Got Drunk
Well tonight I got drunk and sang my heart out to no one
But this aint different just another fucking re run
Tomorrow I’ll get drunk again
Sing until I bleed and then
Pass out on the floor right where I stand

But tonight I’ll get drunk and sing my heart out to no one
But this aint ending no it’s only just begun
Tonight I will pick up that pen
Write a stupid song and then
Maybe I’ll feel better for a change

But what is the point of music?
If no one will hear it
So I’ll share these songs with you
In the hopes that we won’t feel so blue

So tonight we’ll get drunk and sing our hearts out together
And maybe someday soon we’ll sound much better
Tomorrow let’s meet up again
Sing another song and then
Fall asleep holding each other close

But tonight I got drunk and sang my heart out to no one
But this aint different just another fucking re run
Tomorrow I’ll get drunk again
Sing until I bleed and then
Pass out on the floor right where I stand

But what is the point of music?
If no one will hear it
So I’ll share these songs with you
In the hopes that we won’t feel so blue
Track Name: Terror In My Eye
I can’t describe the feeling or the terror in my eye
I woke up this morning and felt like I should die
Cuz I have been misplaced and I don’t know what to do
All of these thoughts in my head: Why am I stuck on you?
See I didn’t get to say goodbye to all of my good friends
Now everyone is telling me that they were just dead ends
They want me to move on and leave my friends behind
Go off to college think of the jobs I’ll find
The jobs I’ll find

So take me away from here
And get me the fuck right out of here

I can’t describe the feeling or the terror in my heart
I’m locked up with emotions and don’t know where to start
I just know this isn’t home at all and I sure feel alone
No one to talk to: a dog without a bone
So I’ll sit here in the corner singing songs just to myself
And when I write another one I’ll throw it on that shelf
Until the day I leave here I will sing until I die
And on the day that happens notice the terror in my eye

So take me away from here
And get me the fuck right out of here

I can’t describe the feeling of not doing what your told
Living your own standard yeah fuck all of the old
But this life is truly yours so you should take it as you will
And do what you need to embrace that every thrill
So fuck all of your colleges I need to get away
I just want to travel and that’s all I’m going to say
So let’s chase that sunset off into the West
Until we find ourselves our own birds nest
So we can settle, but will we ever really settle?
No I don’t think so: We won’t ever settle down

So take me away from here
And get me the fuck right out of here
Track Name: Burn Everything
Burn all the books and burn all the lies
Burn the corruption in their eyes
Burn all the cop cars and tear off the lights
Anarchy and freedom are in my sights
Blow up the suburbs and burn the neglect
The world needs to wake up and come correct
All their mistakes and all their lies
Lets lead the movement no compromise

Burn all the teachers and burn all the grades
Burn everything that’s worth a parade
Burn Hover Park and write on the walls
Or if you prefer in the bathroom stalls
Burn all the suits and burn all the ties
Now I’m here to answer the rebel’s cries
Burn authority and their charades
The man no longer has it made

Burn all the law books and burn all the flags
Burn all the buildings that I used to tag
Fuck society it’s all gone to shit
It may work for you but it doesn’t fit
For me, For Pirates, and the lifestyle led
They’ll brainwash you until they’re in your head
So light up a torch and burn down their stashes
Burn the world down
Don’t stop till it’s ashes
