Track Name: Sleep This Way
Cold as I am, I'm just doin' my best
The best that I can, I'm just needing some rest
The rest that I know, I've needed much too much

Can you help me
Pulling me down
Save my soul
Pulling me down
It drags me down
I can't take this hurt

Oh and I'm so tired
Oh and I'm so tired

Suffered this far, might as well just suffer some more
The more that I take, you know the further I'll fall
Eyes to the sky, I've got my eyes to the sky
One last day, so I can end with the night

Can you help me
Pulling me down
Save my soul
Pulling me down (down, down)
It's draggin' me down (down, down)
I can't take this hurt

Oh and I'm so tired
Oh and I'm so tired

Oh and I'm so tired, one of these days
Oh and I'm so tired, sleep this away
One of these days, sleep this away
One of these days, sleep this away
I'll sleep, I'll (sleep this away) [x2]
Track Name: Trust No One
The system is fucked, things aren't fine
Out of control, the world's lost it's mind

I know this sounds like some trash from the right
My compassion was stolen, smoked in a pipe

Deception and fraud, too many acts to mention
Pushed to the end this is my declaration

Lost, lost, lost, I lost my faith
Lost, lost, trust no one

Learned from mistakes, the lesson was hard
Forecast misfortune, live on your guard

I'm not as negative as all this sounds
I just feel like humanity has let me down

Deception and fraud, too many acts to mention
Pushed to the end this is my declaration

Lost, lost, lost, I lost my faith
Lost, lost, lost, I lost my faith in the world

Rob me at gun point with crowbars and knives
Smash what you want, take what you like

Lost, lost, lost, I lost my faith
Lost, lost, lost, I lost my faith in the world

Rob me at gun point with crowbars and knives
I don't care anymore, been robbed my whole life
Track Name: Dead Wrong
Questioned, until I found what's mine
Only given so many options, promised to work out fine
Brought up, taught what to say
We're all raised in tradition, waking up everyday

There came a chance that I took and ran
Questioned my conscience, stopped going along
There came a point where it all made sense
If what you have is right then I'll die being wrong

[Chorus:]
Dead wrong, dead wrong
If what you have is right then I'll die being wrong
Dead wrong, dead wrong
Wrong for the rest of my life

Hatred, in everything you've got
When it all came crashing down, realized you got caught

There came a chance that I took and ran
Questioned contention, stopped moving along
There came a point where it all made sense
If what you have is right then I'll die being wrong

[Chorus x2]

I was told it would work
Taught to accept
I was told it would work
Taught to hold my breath

Own your future, your own misery's your own design
Own your future, your own happiness is yours to decide
Own your future [x2]
Live dead wrong

[Chorus x2]
Track Name: Doomed To Fail
Calculations, unsolved
I'll sort it out at the end
Apprehensions, dissolved
Just dive right in

Let it out, what's the worst that could happen
Let it out, it either works or it don't
Let it out, there's no telling the best time
Cause time is just the ticking of a clock, man

[Chorus:]
I'd rather get burned (I'd rather get burned)
I'd rather get burned than never have tried
I'd rather get burned (I'd rather get burned)
I'd rather get burned than never have tried

Calculations, uninvolved
This is a current affair
Apprehensions, not at all
We ain't racing to anywhere

Let it out, what's the worst that could happen
Let it out, it either works or it don't
Let it out, just enjoy the ride
Cause it's not the destination it's the trip, man

[Chorus (x2):]
I'd rather get, I'd rather get, I'd rather get burned than never have tried

Doomed to fail, I will always be [x2]
Doomed to fail if I don't even try

[Chorus:]
I'd rather get, I'd rather get, I'd rather get burned than never have tried
Track Name: Black Metal Bicycle
Some people call me a nihilist
Say I don't believe in a thing
I know that can't be true
Cause baby I believe in you (oh yeah)

Cold, dark eyes, the deeper they stare
Underrate me, I don't even care

Pass your judgement or leave me alone, just hurry up and decide
I'm done caring what anyone thinks, I'll just carry on living my life

These misconceptions, you've got so wrong, these misconceptions

In this life, I want nothing, expect nothing, never let down
In this life, I want nothing, but the truth, I know I've found

Cold, dark eyes, why do they care?
Don't understand me, like I'm not even there

On the outside looking right out, to tell you the truth I'm just fine
I'm not caught up in anyone's standards, I'm just looking out keeping what's mine

These misconceptions, you've got so wrong, these misconceptions

In this life, I want nothing, expect nothing, never let down
In this life, I want nothing, but the truth, I know I've found

On my death bed, when I look back, I wanna know that I lived for myself
On my death bed, when I look back, I'll know I lived my life for nobody else

Some people call me a nihilist
Say I don't believe in a thing
I know that can't be true
Cause baby I believe in you

You can call me a nihilist
You can call me whatever you want
I know it can't be true
Cause baby I believe in you
Track Name: We Are The Undead
We are the undead

The brightest outlook, The darkest souls
Bound together, so no one falls

Still unbroken, never fading, down forever, we are the undead
Time can't change us, out of order, liberated, we are the undead

I swear on my life, hope never to die
We're all gonna live forever
I swear on my life, hope never to die

Dead already, just killing time
Walking corpses, just fall in line

Still unbroken, never fading, down forever, we are the undead
Time can't change us, out of order, liberated, we are the undead

I swear on my life, hope never to die
We're all gonna live forever
I swear on my life, hope never to die
We're gonna out live you all
I swear on my life, hope never to die
We're all gonna live forever
I swear on my life, hope never to die
We're gonna out live you all

Colds hand of death (hands of death)
Stay out of reach (out of reach)
Dead like the rest (like the rest)
Never taking me

Bury us, you'll never bury us
Bury us, you'll never bury us

Forever living, not a passing trend
A pact in blood, 'till the bitter end

Still unbroken, never fading, down forever, we are the undead
Time can't change us, out of order, liberated, we are the undead

I swear on my life, hope never to die
We're all gonna live forever
I swear on my life, hope never to die
We're gonna out live you all
I swear on my life, hope never to die
We're all gonna live forever
I swear on my life, hope never to die
We're gonna out live you fucking all
Track Name: Scared To Death
Hold me closer
If you'd kill for me I'd die for you
Ask me now, I'd say "I do"
If you'd kill for me I'd die for you

I've never seen these things so clear
Stared in the face of the things I fear
Petrified, I lost my breath (I'm scared, I'm scared)
Stuck on the thought of having nothing left (I'm scared, I'm scared)

I've never seen these things so clear
These words I speak I'm being so sincere
Electrified straight from the heart (I'm scared, I'm scared)
Caught on the brink of being torn apart (I'm scared, I'm scared)

All the facts that I've been shown
I'm scared to death of dying alone
Hold me closer than I've ever known
I'm scared to death of dying alone

[Chorus]

I wanna kill everything I fear
I wanna kill everything I fear
I wanna kill everything I fear
I'm scared, I'm scared
I wanna kill everything I fear
I'm scared, I'm scared
I wanna kill everything I fear
I'm scared, I'm scared
I wanna kill off all my fear (I'm scared, I'm scared)

All the facts that I've been shown
I'm scared to death of dying alone
Every chance that I've been thrown
I'm scared to death of dying alone

Everyone's screaming, everyone's crying
If I didn't feel it you know I'm lying
So hold me closer than I've ever known
I'm scared to death of dying alone
Track Name: Darkness
Darkness lives, in the heart of me
Deep inside us all, darkness lives

The thrill to kill like a love song
The lust in us to destroy
To strike the life from another
Rise above, never let this take you

Don't you fear this, hate's not breaking free
Don't you fear my, rage won't anchor me

[Chorus]

Want to crush every part of you
Broken bones and all
I'd love to watch you suffer
Rise above, never let this take you

Don't you fear this, hate's not breaking free
Don't you fear my, rage won't anchor me

Strength is clear, from this darkness we all fear
Own the hatred at the deepest of your core
There's no escape from this anger
From what we all have inside
It's in us all, in us all, it's in us all

Never let this take you

Don't you fear this, hate's not breaking free
Don't you fear my, rage won't anchor me
Track Name: Snake Mountain
The real you is wasted, your actions in vain
You beat down your passions for financial gain
You're missing the point, you've forgotten your name

Don't make excuses, don't give me reasons
No explanations, no one cares

You're oh so convincing, you lie to yourself
Caught in the thinking of everyone else
All for the gamble of wealth

Compromise, compromise yourself
Compromise, compromise you'll sell your soul

On the outside you're fine, you're owning your role
Manufacturing smiles is just getting so old
How long can you last 'til this all takes its toll

Don't make excuses, don't give me reasons
No explanations, no one cares

You've come now so far, the way that you act
You know in your heart what you wish could take back
But you've drifted so far from the tracks

Compromise, compromise yourself
Compromise, compromise you'll sell your soul
You're gonna sell your soul [repeat 4x]

Your reasons, deceiving
Your actions, misleading
You've got your price, forgot your past
Now that you're here there's no turning back
Track Name: Make Amends
In my history, certain things kept inside
In my lifetime, certain actions I don't take pride

Push it away, my solution, as a constant, everytime

Communication, break all ties
Without a single shred of remorse
Block all contact stay my course

Push it away, my reaction, without failure, everytime
Block it right out, every person, every problem

[Chorus:]
Tired of just running away (running away)
Time to confront what's mine
Tired of just running away (running away)
Time to confront what's mine

No resolution, nothing solved
With no closure, legs left to stand
Allow all distractions, take my command

Push it away, out of instinct, my survival, everytime
Block it right out, every person, every problem

[Chorus]

I'll make amends, try to make things right
I'll make amends, try to own what's mine
I'll make amends, may take forever, at least it's a start
I'll make amends, may take a lifetime, at least it's a start

My history, will not repeat itself
Push it away, won't take this road, push it away
Track Name: Fake Gold
So sick of this culture
Sick and tired of the tired and weak
Nothing new on the market
So sick of the words you speak

I'm such a skeptic, so cold, when did I get so faded?
Undecided, unsold, when did I get so bored?

Half hearted, fake gold, I'll give this body, this soul
Half hearted, fake gold, I'll bleed, 'til this blood runs cold

So sick of these vandals
All this destruction just looks the same
I thought that noise was danger
Now you're out just pushin' brand names

Am I an asshole? Or just old? When did I get so jaded?
Undecided, unsold, When did I get so bored?

Half hearted, fake gold, I'll give this body, this soul
Half hearted, fake gold, I'll bleed, 'til this blood runs cold

I'm so sick and tired, I'm so sick and tired of all this
Overrated [x2]
I'm so sick and tired of all this
Overrated [x2]
I'm so sick and tired of all this shit
Track Name: Drive This Stake
Longest distance, length of time
Never said that this was easy
Commonsense, left behind
Got myself to drive

This distance is killing me
Dropped line and I'm losing my mind
Everything's perfect, everything's fine
Why can't I shake this feeling?

Alive in the daylight, alone in the dark
We'll always only ever be an ocean apart

Too many hours, too many miles
I swear to you I'll count the days
Drifting further, further away
So many things, wish I could say

This distance is killing me
Piece of static just saved my life
One last night, just one last time
Hope I can keep this going

Alive in the daylight, alone in the dark
We'll always only ever be an ocean apart

[Chorus:]
Lost connection, oh, lost connection
Under the darkest skies, I swear I hate goodbyes
Lost connection, oh, lost connection
No matter how I try, I swear I hate goodbyes

Left and leaving, left behind
Do my best to keep this working
Tired of waking, waking up tired
Dead brain, driving me insane

This distance is killing me
Despise, I curse every sunrise
Out of reach, just out of touch
Only thing I know for certain

Alive in the daylight, alone in the dark
We'll always only ever be an ocean apart

[Chorus]

I hate this ocean
I hate these skies
Oh my darling I just hate goodbyes
Track Name: Raised Right
Set straight from the first time
Taught from the start, right from wrong
Led by example, shown to be strong
On how to act and to carry on
My mother raised me, to be a gentle man
And I know I am my father's son

[Chorus:]
I'll always be keeping my, head up high
I'll always be keeping on, on and on
I'll always be keeping my, head up high
I'll always be keeping on, on and on

Hard work was the best of traits
And to lend a hand, whenever you can
If it was never broken, no need to fix
If it needed mending, learn to stitch
My mother raised me, a resourceful man
And I know I am my father's son

I'll always be keeping my, head up high
I'll always be keeping on, on and on
I'll always be keeping my, head up high
I'll always be keeping on

Without a foundation and sights set so clear
I would fail
I know that I could not have made it to here
I would fail
All that you gave me came straight from the heart
I would fail
Without all the love that you gave from the start
I would fail

[Chorus]

Set straight from the first time
It's a credit to you I never went astray
Last time I checked, I was doing fine
Last time I checked I hadn't lost my mind
My mother raised me, as best as she could
I know I am my father's son
Track Name: Sabotage
[Beastie Boys cover]

Can't stand it, I know you planned it
I'm gonna set it straight, this watergate
Can't stand rockin' when I'm on thin air
Cause your crystal ball ain't so crystal clear
So while you sit back and wonder why
I got this fuckin' thorn in my side
Oh my god, it's a mirage
I'm tellin' y'all it's sabotage

So, so, so
So listen up cause you can't say nothin'
You'll shut me down with a push of your button
But yo, I'm out and I'm gone
I'll tell you now I keep it on and on

Cause what you see you might not get
And you can bet, so don't you get souped yet
You're scheming on a thing that's a mirage
I'll tell you now it's sabotage

Why
Listen all of y'all it's a sabotage
Listen all of y'all it's a sabotage
Listen all of y'all it's a sabotage
Listen all of y'all it's a sabotage

Can't stand it, I know you planned it
I'm gonna set it straight, this watergate
Can't stand rockin' when I'm in this place
Cause it's all a disgrace, cause you're all in my face
Make no mistake when I change up the channel
I'm bloody rich when I fly off the handle
What could it be? It's a mirage
You're scheming on a thing that's sabotage
