Track Name: Made to Kill
V1

It's your word against mine

And that's fine.

I am the heat death of the universe

It'll all be over in time.

It's your world against mine

And I'm ok with that.

I want to consume the planet

Until I'm bloated and fat.


:Chorus:

I thought I was a goner

With nothing else to say.

But then a fire started roaring

And it just won't go away.

I've still got anger in my soul

If you could believe in that.

I just ate my finger nails

And tasted blood when I spat.


V2

There is a vast hole in my life

Where my hopes have finally withered.

I've been wound up oh tight.

I feel the knots deep in my liver.

If I try to sing out I don't know if you'll hear me

But I'll pull the microphone closer

In an attempt to speak more clearly.

V3

Lets light a fire across the oil spills

In the ocean so polluted

We forget that we intruded

On the timely evolution of the world.

It's on us.

Let's build a wall of broken buildings

In the bombed out ego centrals.

We'll take a walk over the bodies of a thousand new inventions made to kill.

Made to kill.


:Chorus:

I thought I was a goner

With nothing else to say.

But then a fire started roaring

And it just won't go away.

I've still got anger in my soul

If you could believe in that.

I just ate my finger nails

And tasted blood when I spat.
Track Name: ...Or Else the Terrorists Win
V1

We drew lines in the sand as if the wind wouldn't blow it all away.

We forget we're accidents divided by a roulette game we play.

Twist the antenna in your head; is the signal coming through?

Our hearts swollen with pride, leave bloodstains in red white and blue.


:Chorus:

This land is my land, its my land, I'll defend it with a torch.

But it'll be hard to see the borders once the earth is scorched.

We've got god on our side, in rockets overhead he hovers

Don't make us call on our big brother.


V2

Never forget son those boys who died

For your freedom of silence, your freedom to buy.

Take your pick of the first world, enjoy all the luck

All because it's where your parents fucked.

:Chorus:

This land is my land, its my land, I'll defend it with a torch.

But it'll be hard to see the borders once the earth is scorched.

We've got god on our side, in rockets overhead he hovers

Don't make us call on our big brother.

Track Name: Phone Sex
V1

Sleeping in the middle of day.

I wake up in the middle of the night.

I got no paycheck this week.

So think I'll just go back to sleep.

I sit down in front of the tv.

I stand up wish for something to eat.

My best friend and I we got no jobs.

Soon enough we'll be on the streets.


:Chorus:

No job openings.

No job prospects.

I'd cook French fries.

Or work in phone sex
X2


V2

I get groceries at the dollar store.

Canned tuna? Oh please no more.

My girlfriend left the other day.

She won't be back 'til we get paid.

We got three people living in one bedroom.

Rent is gonna be due again soon.

Gene, John, and me: the broke ass three.

I'll do any job, just give it to me.


:Chorus:

No job openings.

No job prospects.

I'd cook French fries.

Or work in phone sex
X4
Track Name: Coastal Pains
V1

Call the coast guard

Say I'm drowning in the ocean all alone.

Listen closely

You can hear the waves through the telephone.

Call my mother

Say I won't be visiting this time next year.

If she cries

Let her know that I'm much happier out here.



:Chorus:


Slipping underneath the waves

I've reached the bone with this close shave

Think I'll carve my self a new face

Find a new place to disappear

Ask our elders "what's the point"?

We're not the saviors you anoint

I'll find my own way

Write a new day and close the book.


V2

Sink a little

But somehow stay just a gasp ahead.

Think about it

It's just the essence of, where my choices led.

Drink a little

This salt is my final, toast to all of you.

If you shared it

Maybe finally I could make a promise true.


:Chorus:

Slipping underneath the waves

I've reached the bone with this close shave

Think I'll carve my self a new face

Find a new place to disappear

Ask our elders "what's the point"?

We're not the saviors you anoint

I'll find my own way

Write a new day and close the book.


V3

Drop your eyelids

Let them cease the stinging of the painful green.

It's not easy

But it's not as hard as never getting sleep.

Drop your arms now

It's ok to let the waters take your breath

It's been too long since I could say

That I was equally impressed.


:Chorus:

Slipping underneath the waves

I've reached the bone with this close shave

Think I'll carve my self a new face

Find a new place to disappear

Ask our elders "what's the point"?

We're not the saviors you anoint

You'll find you own way

Write a new day and close the book.
Track Name: Tock
V1


Whether you stared at the clock

Or try to wind it back

Time moved without you

And the sky begins to crack.

You say you can't relate

And it's just not the same

I could never understand

All the things that cause you pain.


:Chorus:

Tick tick

We've got no time to talk.

Tick tick

Let's not stand here and gawk

You've already got your reasons

Out-lined in chalk

But I don't want to give in and just talk.


V2

You keep talking at me

Instead of talking with.

I don't care who you hate now

Stop talking shit.

The things that you believe in

Don't mean much to me.

I'd rather hear the bands

I came here to see.


V3

I've got no desire to argue

This isn't a debate.

Talk to me like an adult

And things will be great.

Your cause is important

But maybe just to you.

I won't carry your banner

Or whatever it is you do.


:Chorus:

Tick tick

We've got no time to talk.

Tick tick

Let's not stand here and gawk

You've already got your reasons

Out-lined in chalk

But I don't want to give in and just talk.
