Track Name: Best Friends
Everybody that you know and love is here / So sorry that you couldn't make it / You’re getting dressed up in your Sunday's best somewhere / To show your face one time before you disappear

Everybody is looking for answers / But just last week nobody cared / We weren't there to help you out all of those years / Now everybody wants to be best friends with the dead man

Your passing was a mystery to all you knew / Nobody could've seen it coming / Your famous last words no one will ever know / 'Cause when they lower down the box you're gone for good

Everybody is looking for answers / But just last week nobody cared / We weren't there to help you out all of those years / Now everybody wants to be best friends with the dead man
Track Name: Mass Transit
We turn a blind eye to the problems outside of our doors / I can't buy a pack of smokes without giving away three or four / We don't see it for what it really is / That man who bums a cigarette is really just trying to live

So let's sell our cars and get monthly bus passes / We'll trade independence for seats with the masses / And we'll take the bus / And ride to the bottoms / And give all our money away

If the tables were turned, you'd be the one on the street / Asking for change or a smoke, begging for something to eat / So put yourself into their shoes, tell me that you'd be so different / Be honest with yourself, and tell me again, where's the justice?

So let's sell our cars and get monthly bus passes / We'll trade independence for seats with the masses / And we'll take the bus / And ride to the bottoms / And give all our money away
Track Name: Crash Course
Breaking out, moving on, like you said I could / Shaping up, shipping out, never thought I would / Take me out, save me now, cause soon I’ll be gone / Waging wars, picking sides, struggle carries on

This can’t break me now / Can’t take me down / I walk around / This broken ground

This is the end of all we show / It’s time to pack our things and go / Keep up, we’re moving much too slow / Crash course of everything we know

I reflect, no regret, what I did is done / Even though they oppose, the battle is won / Carry on, carrying what I thought was gone / Waging wars, picking sides, struggle carries on

This can’t break me now / Can’t take me down / I walk around / This broken ground

Can't break me now / Can’t take me down / I walk around / This broken ground / Can't break me now / Can’t take me down / I walk around / I’m broken

This is the end of all we show / It’s time to pack our things and go / Keep up, we’re moving much too slow / Crash course of everything we know
Track Name: Gimme Death
Well I'm sick of cutsie music / And I'm sick of being told that punk rock is dead / Just like old-time rock and roll / Im sick of cutise music played by cutsie little bands / Whose guitars are ukuleles and whose drums are clapping hands

And my heart sounds nothing like a kick drum / And that beat doesn't make me want to dance

I wanna get down in the pit with my boys and thrash around / I wanna throw some knees and elbows and pick pennies off the ground / I want loud and fast and blood, spit and sweat / Give me punk rock or give me death

Give me bass, give me guitars / Give me drums, is that so hard? / Give me a reason to believe / Give me a reason to bleed / I want strained vocal chords / I want bodies on the floor / I don't want quiet / I want a riot

'Cause my heart sounds nothing like a kick drum / And that beat is driving me insane

I wanna get down in the pit with my boys and thrash around / I wanna throw some knees and elbows and pick pennies off the ground / I want loud and fast and blood, spit and sweat / Give me punk rock or give me death
Track Name: Sinking Down
Come in close / Tell me the truth / Are you talking down your demons / Or letting them talk over you? / I know it's hard / But bear with me, my friend / You will never see relief if you contiue to pretend / So don't pretend

And don't just sit there / Fire off a flare / Send out an S.O.S. / To the rest of us / To say, "I'm losing this fight for air" / Say, "I'm sinking fast as the dark waves crash on me" / I'm sinking down

Give me a sign to show that you're okay / I can't bear another minute of seeing you in so much pain / Open your eyes and look all around / There's not a one of us who wants to see you lowered down / Into the ground

So don't just sit there / Fire off a flare / Send out an S.O.S. / To the rest of us / To say, "I'm losing this fight for air" / Say, "I'm sinking fast as the dark waves crash on me" / I'm sinking down
Track Name: Scarlet Eyes
No time to run, no time to give / You make it hard for me to live / I hear your voice, it's haunting me / You make it hard for me to see / I know you're there, I feel your stare / I know it's hard for me to care / You hear my words, you pick my brain / And now you're driving me insane

And I can feel you breathing / Can feel the heresy / Yeah I can feel you breathing / Please stay away from me / And I can feel you breathing / Can feel the heresy / And when you get too close

I know that I will see right through those scarlet eyes / I see right through that fake disguise
Track Name: Not Enough
Trying to look for all the answers / I don’t remember how to feel / I feared this moment from the start / But now I can't believe it's real

So can we go back where we started? / The road ahead is growing tough / And now my mind and I have parted / And now I feel I’m not enough

Hard to forget all the memories / All I want to think about is you / Can’t get you out of my head / And now there's nothing I can do

So can we go back where we started? / The road ahead is growing tough / And now my mind and I have parted / And now I feel I'm not enough

Tonight I pack my bags / And tonight I leave this home / I know things will get better / I know I’m not alone / Tonight I’m walking out the door

Don’t wanna go back where we started / The road I’ve left behind was rough / I'm done with being broken-hearted / I think by now I’ve had enough
Track Name: Cicada
I play the innocent part / I play it all too well / Voices echo like cicadas / Bringing me to mental hell / Can't sleep, I'm barely breathing / All hope is running thin / I hear you out there knocking / But will I let you in?

You know what’s best / Please spare the rest / My heart is beating through my chest / You know what’s best / Test after test / There's nothing left

I've walked this line / Too many times / To forget what you've done / But now this time I realize / That it's time to move on

Time lapses oh so slowly / Minutes pass with no prevail / It seems the ship I'm seeking / Has already set sail / My mind's a helpless battle / Too many sides for one to win / I hear you out there knocking / But will I let you in?

You know what’s best / Please spare the rest / My heart is beating through my chest / You know what’s best / Test after test / There's nothing left

I've walked this line / Too many times / To forget what you've done / But now this time I realize / That it's time to move on.

Tick tock, the clock is ticking

I've walked this line / Too many times / To forget what you've done / But now this time I realize / That it's time to move on
Track Name: I Want You
Hey there how old are you? / 18? Well that'll do / I'm your Uncle Sam / That's who I am / I've got a deal for you / Do you wanna hear what we can do? / You can work for me and I'll lie to you

So step right up boys, and get in line / Be the first young men to sign away your lives / And they'll take care of you / If you can make it through the hail of gunfire / In the best years of your lives

Hey there now don't you cry / Your daddy's comin' home alive / Maybe missin' an arm or two / Hey there now little girl / Your dad's a hero of this great war / Too bad he'll never hug you anymore.

So step right up boys, and get in line / Be the first young men to sign away your lives / And they'll take care of you / If you can make it through the hail of gunfire / In the best years of your lives.
