Track Name: In For A Penny
I Feel The Rain Pummeling Outside
Got A One Way Ticket On The Loneliest Divide
We Stood At the Altar And Said I Do
I Feel This Thunder In Way I Wish i Felt With You
WHAT STARTED OUT WITH PLEASURE
IS OFTEN FILLED WITH PAIN
LONG TALKS AND OPEN ARMS
ALL PASSION NEVER BLAME
THE LOVE CAN BE SO SILENT
THIS EMPTY BED ID PROOF
IF WE COULD START ALL OVER
ID STAND UP HERE AND SAY I DO
This Love Can Be, SO.......Cold
Alberta Clipper With A Fury to Behold
The Time Has Come To Make A Stand
I’ve Been To Hell And Back Somehow My Soul Is not Quite DAMNED
THOSE LIPS THAT TASTE LIKE SUGAR
CAN SPIT THE HARSHEST WORDS
THOSE ARMS THAT HOLD SO TIGHTLY
THROW PUNCHES AFTERWARDS
YOUR EYES CAN PIERCE MY ARMOR
ALLOW A BULLET THROUGH
BUT IF WE COULD START ALL OVER
ID STAND UP HERE AND SAY I DO
Can We Move On, Put This Behind, Let Down Your Guard, Look In My Eyes(2)
We Said We’d Last Forever, If What We Have Was True, From Here On Out I Promise It’ll be Just Me And You....
Track Name: Poison...The Air We Breathe
So afraid of dying scared to live your life trapped inside your house sharpening your knife. Threat levels are high situations dire listen to the media, then listen to a liar. Bright sunny day outside hangin with her friends thinking of all the thing left undone or maybe just unsaid dark clouds are rolling in watching murder on TV CSI and CNN when will it end. SO AFRAID OF DYING YOUR SCARED TO LIVE YOUR LIFE TRAPPED INSIDE YOUR HOUSE SHARPENING YOUR KNIFE, THREAT LEVELS ARE HIGH ONLY GETTING HIGHER LISTEN TO THE MEDIA THEN LISTEN TO A LIAR. Panic holds you down the world just passes by obsessing on the things left undone or maybe just unsaid she’s staying in tonight darkness creeping in she thinks about the outside world and what she’s breathing in. POISONS IN THE AIR-SHE FEELS SHE’S DYING PARALYZED BY FEAR-SHE CANT STOP CRYING-HER LIFES A TOTAL WRECK-SHE CAN’T CONTROL IT CAREENING OFF THE EDGE HER HEAD EXPLODING!
Track Name: Sacrifice
We sing this song for the working class who always pay their dues but hardly ever get it back work til’ you die is the American way but make sure your a good consumer. Sacrifice your life, for some good advice how to die alone it wont be this way If i can stop it now tear the blindfold down do what's in your heart we’re learning how to get by Your Broken back or your messed up legs not from living life but busting for the man each day work til’ you die is the American way not today my friend i got dreams don’t abandon them WE WILL PISS ON THE AMERICAN DREAM WE WILL BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS WE WILL PISS ON YOUR AMERICAN DREAM WE LIVE LIFE FROM WITHIN OUR HEARTS
Track Name: Out For Number One
You never give you alway take the things away from us our hearts are strong live on without the blaming game or victimized, you see that your story and we will not bow down to your fucking game of life will anybody ever see how important this can be. WILL THEY SEE THE TRUTH, ITS IN OUR HEARTS WE WON’T LET GO, THEY'VE NEVER FLET THEY’VE NEVER FELT I STILL HOLD THIS FALE AND I HOLD IT HIGH. I never want to feel the way you do my friend that brings you to these selfish acts I laugh I laugh I choke I called you friend. You never thanks you always take the things away from us our heads are filled with memories of what you’ve done and will not do you see thats your story and we will not bow down to your bullshit reviling of life and will anybody ever see how important this can be...
Track Name: Rusty Hinges
And So It Goes
This Body’s Old
Bags Under My Eyes
Gaps In My Mind
And So It Goes
Seasons Change
Parties Come And Go
Lock The Door Behind Me I’m Gone
There Comes A Time
You Got To Choose
Between Acting Young
And Giving In
There Comes A Time
You Realize
What’s important to you
And leave all the other shit behind
WHEN YOUR MIND SAYS YOUR GROWIN OLD, RUSTY AT THE HINGES
THE FEELING MIGHT LAST TOO LONG
JUST TAKE THOSE THOUGHTS AND SHUT EM’ OUT
YOU ONLY LIVE LIFE ONCE, REGRETS ONLY COME AND GO
And So It Goes
Feel So Damn Old
Got No Fight Within
Dead within this Bed
And So It Goes
I cant believe
That there’s so much more
That these eyes of mine will never fucking see
Life Goes on, With or without You!
Track Name: Signed And Delivered
This is the end of it and I know I tried my best and we failed and its time to let go we can move on...Seven years gone in a blink of an eye. Things that were said can never be taken back the damage is done. A life built over time is now gone Now we can move on. AND ALL THE THINGS YOU’VE BEEN TELLING ME (I WONT BACK DOWN) MATERIAL LIFE IS THAT WHAT YOU REALLY NEED (IM NOT THE ONE) ITS A SELFISH LIFE, YOU SAY THAT I LEAD (LOOK IN NOT OUT) RIGHT NOW IM TELLING YOU I DON’T BELIEVE (THIS IS THE END) Now the pain is setting in and it real words cut like nails,dragging down the skin jagged and course. can we bounce back each in our separate life’s, how do we move on.....this isn’t what i signed on for....this isn’t what i deserve
Track Name: Dark Streets of Urbana
This sand is burning at my feet and the sun is in my eyes, could you please move your blocking my tan now. I’m bleeding to go home but i am starving for more and more, lets kick this switch to overdrive to a place where we don’t know the streets WE’LL WALK THESE STREETS ALONE TONIGHT, BURN THESE BUILDINGS IN OUR MINDS, WE’LL TAKE CONTROL OF THE NIGHT AND TALK ABOUT OUR DREAMS WITH EMPTY POCKETS ARMED WITH FLAMES AND ROCKETS IN OUR MINDS, LETS BURN THIS LIFE EVERYONE HAS WRITTEN IN THIER MINDS This heart is pounding like a needle jamming in my skin, could you look my in these burning eyes again? I’m bleeding head to toe with thoughts of you in my mind I never thought I'd feel this you take me a place I'll never forget
Track Name: Never Give Up
We Will Never Give Up, We Will never Give In
As Long As This Is In Our Hearts
Raise Your Fists And Sing Along
They Tried To Drag us down with negativity
Beat us on the head with empty promises
A punk kid who won’t amount to anything
In a system they created he knows he’ll never fit in
Tonight On this stage
We will save the love you give
Know it means the fucking world
Tonight at this show
Miles from where we’ve been
This is our whole fucking world.
They couldn’t force me to live their life
We'll keep this going until the last note dies
A man now who knows what he wants
But the one thing he strives for is just out of reach
Track Name: Take A Bow
This Could Be The Last Time that We Know
This Could Be The Last Time That It Shows
We Can All be Happy For a while
Look Around
Faces Made Of Stone And Plastic Light
A Chance To Get Ahead can Warp Your Sight
Didn’t want to look the other way
Didn’t Know Exactly What To Say
Looking Back
God I Must Have Been An Awful Sight
Couldn’t Cast Reflections In the Light
Didn’t Know Exactly What To Say
Things You Know Just How To Say
Track Name: New York
ts A Rainy Night In New York
Walking Hand In Hand
Trying To Fit In
Just See The Workers And The Businessmen
In Their One Way World Tonight
Look At Her Blue Eyes And Think Everything Will Turn Out Right
We Will See This everyday of our lives
Or will it fade out with the sun
Or just burn our eyes
We’ve Wished this A thousand Times,
To never go back there, but when we finally do, this won’t be the end of this dream.
We Will Leave this Place Tomorrow, But Tonight We’ll leave our Differences aside
You Can Speak Your Mind Tomorrow, But Tonight We’ve got this city in our sites
Leave With A Night To remember, lets get in the van to the next agenda, and we’ll see this Brooklyn Skyline in the rear view mirror but forever in our minds.
Track Name: Kathy
Life as you know it has stopped stopped and let you off.
All the decisions that you made probably not the best ideas you ever had.
Burning bridges you seem to have forgot and have fallen right through them again.
WE ALL WE DIE AT THE HANDS OF THESE KILLING FIELDS,(GROW UP STOP LIVING IN THE PAST
WE ALL WE DIE IN THE HANDS OF THESE KILLING FIELDS (DRINK THEM AWAY WITH YOUR BAD MISTAKES).
Life as you know it has stopped
You turn to things that may not make it right
All the decisions that you made probably not the best ideas you ever had
