Track Name: Continental Drift
Instrumental
Track Name: Break
Break

Everybody thinks that I’m working at an angle
But working is trying and trying just ain’t my style
You’re always saying that I’ve got to change
Well you can change your mind but your mind can’t change me

All our lives we try, though in the end we die
Like a fire that burns, as it then yearns
To be stoked by a goal, as if like coal
Set in by desire to let that fire transpire
Amuse, a muse, my kingdom for amusement

Everyday’s the same, like animals, we’re tamed
Inside anger alerts, a rebellion that lurks
It begs us to rise and we just act surprised
Though we want to continue, we just don’t know how to
Arise, a rise, a new age is rising

I’ve got the blues, how about you?
This useless existence is breaking me down.
Track Name: Unkempt
Unkempt

I’ll grow old and I’ll die poor
Be by myself just like before
I’ll never be loved, only adored
A wound to the skull and found on the floor

Unconscious and suspicious once again
Untrusted and dishonest with myself

Soak the pages in eyes of blue
There’s nothing left to me but you
Nothing here for me, I am who?
I’ll die alone, that’s yesterday’s news.

Being followed and put to the chase
An indirect slap to the face
It’s like a solstice driving me insane
A suicide bomber living in my brain

We’re not the ones who should have to
Take the blame for yesterday
We shouldn’t be held accountable
For the shit that others say

Unconscious and suspicious yet again
Untrusted and dishonest with myself
Dig inside my mind and you’ll hear it say
The last of my kind has gone away
Track Name: Nothing Gold
Nothing Gold

You’re wasting my time, time I cannot waste
You’ve slapped the lips right off my face
I’m going to take what’s mine, and I won’t hesitate
To shoot from the hip, with pride, without a trace

I can see what you want to take.
It won’t be so easy, make no mistake
I can smell your smoke around me
I can tell you’re going to drown me, but I won’t let it happen…
Not again

You’ve pushed me to the point, the point of no return
Your views have been heard in every way
I want you out of this joint ‘cause you’re going to get burned
Since you’ve become so absurd, I don’t care for what you have to say

I’ve read prophecies and seen biblical weather
That shit’s our reality and it ain’t getting better
Our history’s a mystery surrounded by conspiracy
Viewed as a monarchy, and broken down by poverty
Track Name: Devil's Lullaby
Devil's Lullaby

Watch the world crumble as it slips away
The pain grows to envy and leads to another day

What's my name?
What's your game, yeah?
What's my name?
Are we the same, no?

Kiss the scars on your arms and dig an empty grave
Hold it close to your heart, my little dagger, you're my slave

What's my name?
What's your game, yeah?
What's my name?
Are we the same, no?

We're goin down all the way
You're my slave, you best obey

What's my name?
What's your game, yeah?
What's my name?
Are we the same, no?
What's my name?
What's your game, yeah?
What's my name?
Are we the same, no?

Gotta spend alotta of time to get your facts in line
I've never tried makin enemies, bitches bug cuz I'm me
Y'all don't got a clue what the two of us have been through, yeah
Gotta get your facts in line, it's about dam time
Open up your eyes, it's time to realize
Every word I speak is true for I am me and who the fuck are you?

I can't take it anymore, give me back my soul
Said I can't take it anymore, I want some control

I build it up from the inside, watch it grow like a high tide
Stand up tall, I get back up, let ya know I don't give a fuck
Ya gotta focus on your own life, I ain't your sacrifice, yeah
I don't wait, I take control
I roll with the punches and I reach my goals
I'm takin back my soul, makin diamonds from this coal
No more lyin, ya just gotta start tryin

I can't take it anymore, give me back my soul
Said I can't take it anymore, I want some control

Can't hold me back... Can't break me down...

Tare ya down by the wayside, watch ya fall like a landslide
Stay down, don't get back up
Tell em that ya had enough, you stupid little fuck
All these things ya say will one day fade away
When it comes, my head will clear
Wash it away with empty fear
No more cryin, just start tryin

I can't take it anymore, give me back my soul
Said I can't take it anymore, I want some control
Track Name: Looks Like Suicide
Looks Like Suicide

Lost and all alone
Looking for a bone
Staring at the sun
Reaches for a gun and now...

She's suicide bound
Hold your breath
Don't make a sound

Lost and unaware
Glances become stares and now...

In the middle she's stuck
Nobody cares
She's just out of luck

Another time
Another place
Innocence just fell from grace
Out of time
Such a shame
Another scar on a deadly face

Lost and can't be found
Watch her as she drowns
The sun becomes the moon
Locked inside her room and now...

Just a memory
Now everyone cares
But she is nothing...

Another time
Another place
Innocence just fell from grace
Out of time
Such a shame
Another scar on a deadly face
Track Name: Bitch
Bitch

Pardon me and pardon you, Miss eyes of green and skies of blue
Part of me is mostly you, I'd love to stay and argue too (but)

I don't think you quite understand me
It's hard to see in a world so shady
I'm dirt poor you're so clean and so rich
Can't you tell I just want to be your's

Ignorance they say is bliss, All these lies is what I miss
Trapped within all of this Artificial Intelligence

I don't think you quite understand me
It's hard to see in a world so shady
I'm dirt poor you're so clean and so rich
Can't you tell I just want to be your bitch, baby

Never Happy... So Alone...
I'm just so panic prone

I just want to be your bitch

I don't think you quite understand me
It's hard to see in a world so shady
I'm dirt poor you're so clean and so rich
Can't you tell I just want to be your bitch, baby

I just wanna
I just wanna
I just wanna
I just wanna be your bitch, baby

Track Name: A Little Less Conversation
A Little Less Conversation

A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me
Satisfy me baby

Baby close your eyes and listen to the music
Drifting through a summer breeze
It's a groovy night and I can show you how to use it
Come along with me and put your mind at ease

A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me
Satisfy me baby

Come on baby I'm tired of talking
Grab your coat and let's start walking
Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Don't procrastinate, don't articulate
Girl it's getting late, gettin' upset waitin' around

A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me
Satisfy me baby
Track Name: East Coast Tragedy
East Coast Tragedy

Another plane, another tower
Another undercover coward
Another term, another name
Either way, you're all the same

You're just Another East Coast Tragedy

Another dime, another dollar
Another imposter in the hour
Another thought, to remember
I'd rather be a poser than an imposter

You wanna belong to something
Don't you want to?

You're just another East Coast Tragedy

You wanna belong to something
Don't you want to?

Another time, another minute
Another one who's in it just to win it
Another action to prove who's best
It's just another popularity contest

You're just another East Coast Tragedy

You wanna belong to something
Don't you need to
Don't you have to
Don't you want to
Belong to something
Track Name: Scattergun
Scattergun

I’m a scattergun with an empty-hollow soul
I’m the chosen one with a lack of self-control
I’m a super human, I lift whoever’s down
I’m a drifter man, I drift from town to town

Out of my hands and out of my reach
Must take a stand against those who preach
Losing my mind through catastrophes
Cancel out crime and set me free

I’m the favorite son, the one you’ll never be
I am Triton, King of the Seven Seas
You’re the Anti-Christ fueled by human fright
Just a sacrifice to end our darkest night

Out of my hands and out of my range
Must take a stand for those who are strange
Out of my hands and out of my reach
Must take a stand against those who preach
Something or another about you and me
I don’t want to change, I wanna be free

Scattergun...
Track Name: Slappy The Squirrel Needs Plastic Surgery For Her Big Cartoon Comeback
Slappy The Squirrel...

Scars and wounds are left unmend
Cuz I'd rather die than make amends
Happiness, I won't pretend
I'll never be happy again

I bet you think that I was wrong
Well look who's here and who's gone
Pen in hand, I write this song
Another way I move along

Remove yourself from the people of your yesterdays
Enter tomorrow as you whittle your past away
The one who starts the family is the one who tares it apart

I only want what I can't have
All I want is simply out of grasp
I only reach for what I can't grab
All I want is you, but I can't
Hold you closely...
Kill me gently... Tonight
