Track Name: Anthem of a New Yesterday
It's been a lifeline
It's passed the days and saved us
For the last time
It's not a minus or a plus
It's the dawn of the death of our youth
it's come too soon
So tell me a tale about not getting older
Before I lose the ego and the chip on my shoulder
It's time for an injection of some enthusiasm
Its becoming hard to take it, its becoming our anthem
Yesterday isn't too far away, tomorrow is never becoming
And I would thank you for the pain
with that said tomorrow is never becoming
Its been a lifetime and it’s taken it’s toll
This love has been a lifeline and swallowed us whole
I guess this is the whole point about not going far
by planes, trains, drugged escape it's low brow and it's dark
We push ourselves to make it through the cracks and the fray
This is getting old I’m told this is the way it goes or so they say
Track Name: The Teacher Who Loved Me
It’s 8am and class time, I’m wound up for her lecture, it’s ecstasy I need
A little bit of anxious, those wild eyes between us, I know she’s into me
And maybe she will tutor me alone
There’s passion that this woman wants to show
She wants me, I know she really wants me
My eyes fall around her clothes as I wonder if she knows.. She knows.
She comes in with a smile, oh god it’s been a while,
since she stood close to me
I think that it’s time that I made her mine, I bet she can’t wait
And then maybe we’ll go to her home she’ll show me wonders
She’ll love me so and show me those lovely bits she’s got
I’ll be her student here forever and she’ll be mine
Track Name: Suicide Social
I’m bored and i'm cold, how i wish this would end
Stuck outside alone at a house in South Bend
You said it'd be rad, and that we'd have a great time
But it's Jersey shore inside with a box of cheap wine
So won’t you wake me up before you go tonight
I had a moment of clarity that I was right
And that this fuckin’ party would suck alright
So i'm crashed out on the porch to get away
From your supa-fly party of pain
Your stories are lies and your breath smells like shit
The closer you stand to me the sicker I get
The music's too loud and your couch smells like piss
Cats all around my neck, your pitbull sniffing my dick
So won’t you wake me up before you go tonight
I had a moment of clarity that I was right
And that this fuckin’ party would suck alright
So i freeze outside just to stay out of sight
And as the time ticks by
The drunken assholes start to brawl and fight
It's getting weirder as your girlfriend stares
Without her shirt on, puking everywhere
I try and back out with nowhere to go
Lookin’ for Dave and Todd to hit the road
Panic overcomes, i run for the door
I drop my keys and fumble on the floor
Can’t fucking take it anymore
No need to wake me up, this van is jet to flight
I had a moment of clarity that I was right
I knew that fuckin’ party would suck alright
Ill drive as fast as I can to put that shit behind
Track Name: The Need To Run
There’s a panic that’s been choking on my life as I age
It’s catching up and creepin’ in like a jihadist crusade
I need to leave for vacation in a permanent way
Onward! The places that I’ve wanted to go
It’s not that far away for me to be out on the road
Flying fast as a bat out of hell I go
While I breathe and bleed I’m gonna be
Out on the run cause the end ain’t that far away
It’s not that far away
Cause I’m feeling slower every day
Behold new aches and pains
Onward! the only place to go
Before you know it BAM!, lead in your veins
You’re slowing back you ‘ve got no place to hide
Standing still flashes like strobe in the mind
Indecision’s poisoned you from inside
Gotta move now if I’ll ever stay young forever
Gripped with boredom, chained in this state
If I just keep on my toes I know that I’ll never age
I flood the brakes the mood starts to slow
It’s not that far away for me to drown in rock n’ roll
And ride the rhythms of these melodies I stole
While I bleed and breathe I’m gonna be
Out on the run cause the end ain’t that far away
It’s not that far away
Before I blow I’ll hesitate with one last mile to the ride
No chance I’ll make it out alive before I fall behind
And that’s just quite alright
Track Name: Zack
Zack picks up the phone and he blows all his rent
There is no thought if it’s wrong or right
Night out on the town thinking nothing at all
He takes steps close to the edge
Tied off, he wonders as the fork tells spoonful lies
In the back of his mind that someday he might
Take back control of his life
Zacks on tar and china white heroin
He shakes so hard with the bugs under the skin
And all the while he’s trying just to buy himself some time
And although he’s dying on the inside he says he’s fine
Back when Zack was a kid he had so many dreams
Now he sleeps in the back of his car
And he cuts it up to feel nothing at all
His hopeful youth has been spent
Now and then he wanders down to lower Wacker drive
Still the wind isn’t kind and the cold chills his spine
He thinks why should he even try
Zacks on tar and china white heroin
He shakes so hard with the bugs under the skin
And all the while he’s trying just to buy himself some time
And although he’s dying on the inside he says he’s fine
It’s dragging him down
It’s not despair that he wants
He tries like hell and prays for it to stop
Zacks on tar and china white heroin
He shakes so hard with the bugs under the skin
And all the while he’s trying just to buy himself some time
And although he’s dying on the inside he says he’s fine
Track Name: Socialite
With red carpets down you're always around
Playing whore for the camera man
Your life is a fake and fame a mistake
Accomplished nothing to earn your breaks
With ratings so high, your type multiplies
Infection spreads through the airwaves
Your false attitudes and prescripted moods
Imagination goes down the tubes
Still I wonder why a person would buy
up the rage of some socialite
Spend their viewing time living inside
fake actors fake lives..
With ratings so high, your type multiplies
Infection spreads through the airwaves
Your false attitudes and prescripted moods
Imagination..
Dont you see it? The downfall of TV
Producers breed it, to keep themselves wealthy
and the viewers they suck for playing right into their hands
Getting pimped by a socialite brand
Is your life so lame that you become enslaved
over people you're never met?
And if they met you a 'no one' they'd choose
to ignore you and smirk at best
You should wonder why
you're spending your time watching other people live life
If you’d step outside your focus of mind
you'd be less fried
Don’t you see it? The downfall of TV
Producers breed it, to keep themselves wealthy
and the viewers they suck for playing right into their hands
getting pimped by a socialite brand
Lately I’ve found watching so difficult
Boiling my blood
And still today I am a nobody
But at least I’m not living a lie
Track Name: The Mutiny
So all aboard and show your passports
Its 21 to climb aboard of course
We'll make it inside, it's almost high tide
It's gonna be the night of our fuckin lives
Anchors away, the large mugs create the ocean spray
People push you to the side, as the whole floor comes alive
It all takes me away, I become elated on this stage
She looked me in the eye, she looked me in the eye
And stood so all alone as some punk crashes to the floor by her feet
I stand on top of the world on these four inches see the whole show beneath
and she see's me..
Take my hand this adventure is captured in time
We were separated from our simple lives
By this jive dive-bar sensation, this punk rock vacation
Is floating under the radar, floating under the radar
Stay course, full steam ahead the boring daylight is a thing of the past
All hands on deck for the last encore comes to us it’s over too fast
Take my hand this adventure is captured in time
We were separated from our simple lives
By this jive dive bar sensation, this punk rock vacation
Is floating under the radar, floating under the radar
