01 THRU YOUR FINGERS

(2:03)

My happiness boiling in the bottom of a spoon
Just another day you blow your brains away
Stretch and mold, you're all alone
Through your fingers your life just slips away

I fight my personal war
In the end there is no score
My life just slipped away

Another ounce of heaven, a whisp of twisted love
Trembling hands lift me to a world far above
Taking on a whole new shape my whole world drifts away
Now I feel the orders and I must obey

Living life in a bar, it just seems it's too high
Hauling your drunken ass all day to a bar

The more things change the more things stay the same
This drug is just another game
I play with my soul to lose all control
And wait for death to take me away

02 MIKE'S SONG

(1:01)

Oh god I can't believe you're in it again
When you struggled so hard to be free
You're a slave to your vice man
You're wasting your life
Oh god man, why can't you see

You were doing so good and I really thought you could
This time it's good to get things out
Well I guess I was wrong, yeah, wrong all along
Your a loser, there is no doubt

I gotta give up now, I guess you'll never see
The way things are to me
You're stuck in your rut
We will be embarrassed with you now
With the way you will always be

And there will come a time
When you lose your piece of mind
When you take a look to see
When you take a look inside yourself
And see that you're the enemy

03 SUPPORT YOUR TROOPS

(2:12)

Blood on paper, russian sand
Painted with the blood of a fellow man
Mr. President said there's nothing to fear
From the look of his eyes, I see the end is near

But the bombs still fall
Falling down on me, falling down on me
Falling down like rain

Support your troops but not their cause
Your leaders are all desperate men
The years have passed and now at last
He's gonna finally take command
Saddam's gonna make him want to see
His reelection for another term
What a better way to make fun of swing
Guarantee their safe return

Maybe we'll only lose a few thousand lives
Well that's just a chance I'll have to take
Get the public off my back
About all this domestic crap
And evading the mess I will create

Anticipate the discharge, ignorance on display
George Bush and the congress are blowin it all away
The oil fields he's set on fire, he sees them all turn black
The war is done, it's over with, there's no turning back
The war is done, it's over with for now
Help the people now by staying away
It's just a matter of time before they make up their minds
Then they're gonna blow us all away

04 DAMNED

(2:05)

At times I sit and wonder, what's it all mean
Violence and suffering, complete misery
Every day I move on and my problems just keep adding up
But progress has destroyed us, remains where we burn

I ponder more, and laugh to myself
I think about the dusty bible sitting on my shelf
Used to believe there was a father so bright
But he's not there it's just a lie

We're not going to heaven, we're already in hell
We're all damaged here and I wish you well
I wonder where you are now and why you had to leave
But my bloods so cold and my heart is cold
And I have no time to breathe

I ponder more, and laugh to myself
I think about a dusty bible sitting on my shelf
Used to believe there was a father so bright
But he's not there it's just a lie

I've crashed too many times to even bother to write
Don't tell me what's wrong, don't tell me what's right
Take your hopes and dreams and walk ahead of me
Cause in the end damned and buried we will all be

05 PERFECT WORLD

(1:55)

Who needs peace when you've got the bomb
Who needs to love when you got the whore
Who needs money when you've got your credit
Got your plastic paying all your bills

Who needs books when you got TV
You don't need to read with the VCR
Who needs to cook we got microwaves
You don't need to walk when you've got a car

We be livin in a perfect world
The world atop gets you warm enough
A system helpless by itself
Happier that you are in hell

Who needs to get up and change the channel
When the remotes can do that for you
Who needs children when you've got abortion
You can kill your babies if you want to

Who needs books when you got TV
You don't need to read with the VCR
Who needs to cook we got microwaves
You don't have to walk when you've got a car

We be livin in a perfect world
The world atop gets you warm enough
A system helpless by itself
Happier that you are in hell

Dream in a world where one doesn't need you
Just a window of a world to their good day
In this cess pool called civilization
Now we've gone too far to go back

We're livin in a perfect world
We're livin in a perfect world
We're livin in a perfect world

Destroy it while you still can

06 LIES

(2:19)

Happy as it finally comes to an end
Suspicion and conviction weighs my mind
Waiting for assault or a threat of another kind
Run so far and I felt so much pain
Hoping all I've lost now I've tried to regain
You always knew how to bring me to my knees
The pain and hate resume like a bad, bad disease

I tremble and I shake from the memories of your lies
The whole world's falling, I can see it in your eyes
The whole world's falling, I can see it in your eyes
The whole world's falling, I can see it in your eyes
In your eyes, in your eyes

So sorry it had to end this way
Maybe I'll see you again another day
You told me that you loved me, I could not respond
In the hell I could not see, I
I follow my mind to lead you away
Cause I followed my heart, it led me astray
The time has come for me to say goodbye
Grow a little older and begin to die

I tremble and I shake from the memories of your lies
The whole world's falling, I can see it in your eyes
The whole world's falling, I can see it in your eyes
The whole world's falling, I can see it in your eyes
In your eyes, in your eyes

Yesterdays a memory, and a memory of the pain
I must forget what you, you meant to me

07 I AM NOT AFRAID

(1:25)

You say that I talk too much, you never listened to what I have to say
Are you afraid that what I say will make you stop and think
Got no good victories, but they're comin back to haunt me all the time
With your head buried in the sand, life passed you by
And I'm not afraid

I'm not afraid
To mess with you, you're fiddling with the numbers you are
Redneck is what stupid people I don't, so you're gonna break my bones
Well I refuse to fight, 'cause knowledge, knowledge conquers all
And I refuse to hate 'cause hate makes you feel too small

I'm not afraid
To mess with you, to look you in the eye
Life is too short to let hate rule your life
I'm not afraid, of his self, I'm not afraid of you
I'm not afraid of all things that life's put me through

I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to face my fear
I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to face my fear

There's times in our lives when life seems to stop making sense
That's when it's easy to lay the blame on someone else's head
Just pick the pieces up, accept it, just let it pass you by
Just pick the pieces up and just get on with your life

I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid

08 STRUNG OUT

(2:25)

The crumple of a law, justice shrinks the pain I feel
The dream we have, a bumpy road, to me has no appeal
Realistic dreaming comes out at you some day
The dream you have a perfect world just fades this night away

I'm strung out on this way of life
I have to find another way
Antagonistic tendencies plague me every day
Strung out on this road today
As my mind has been sorta unclean
I'm strung out on this way of life
And in debt every fucking way

I gave up a long time ago on the goals set for me
Ignorance and politics are strung out to be free
Cannot seem to find the answers problems that exist
But the misery that falls never fails to persist

I'm strung out on this way of life
I have to find another way
Antagonistic tendencies plague me every day
Strung out on this road today
As my mind has been sorta okay
I'm strung out on this way of life
And in there, every fucking way

Well I know you're scared and so am I
All these things that I tried to deny
Dream of toil creeps upon my sleep
Crawling alone, I'm in too deep

Sitting in a room in another hole
As I dream of hate and a desperate toll
I don't want it anymore, I can't take it anymore
I don't want it anymore

The crumple of a law justice shrinks the pain I feel
The dream we have, a bumpy road to me has no appeal
Realistic dreaming comes out at you some day
The dream you have will never float the miserable night away

I'm strung out on this way of life
I have to find another way
Antagonistic tendencies plague me every day
Strung out on this road today
As my mind has been sorta unclean
I'm strung out on this way of life
And in there, every fucking way

09 DISNEY LAND

(1:36)

I want something more from this misery called life
It's hard to keep my dreams alive, there's all this pain and strife
I dream of a place where all of us can hide
A world where my interest can never be denied

Again they call me off, it's happiness and fear
The burning and my pain I see reflected in your cheer
I didn't mean to bore you with the struggle I endure
But maybe it's all in my head and nothing pure is pure

I want to move to Disney Land and forget about this place
What better way to get away from the fucked up human race
I want to go to a world of genuine make believe
I'm trapped here in Disney Land and I never want to
I never want to leave

Dragons and castles are from constant child dreams
Fun and games is nothing but they take it to extremes
Don't know happiness it's fun just shootin me away
I'm trapped here in Disney Land, it's here I want to stay

I want to move to Disney Land and forget about this place
What better way to get away from the fucked up human race
I want to go to a world of genuine make believe
I'm trapped here in Disney Land, I never want to leave

10 CHILDISH GAMES

(2:03)

Well now I can see through the games that you play
And watch as you play them with me
And I don't understand, if you love someone
Then why was it such agony

Another time, another place
Would maybe be different
But right now it's far too late
Right here, right now, right where I'm at
My feelings I just can't escape

So tell me, just tell me why
Don't you know how hard I try
Just tell me where I went wrong
Just tell me and I'll be gone

And I don't care about society in general
I know now we're all built the same
But society can make you hurt another person
And not hear the cries of your pain

You tell me truth, you tell me lies
You're different so I'm blind
I got caught up in how others think
And I got left behind
You play your games you play with me
To make others think your cool
The only real thing you ever loved, you threw away
You fool

So tell me, just tell me why
Don't you know how hard I try
Just tell me where I went wrong
Just tell me and I'll be gone

And I don't care about society in general
I know now that we're all built the same
But some of us grow up faster than others
While others play childish games

11 I REMEMBER WHEN

(2:48)

I stand alone imprisoning to this hell they've offered me
Now you're such a power and shine for all of us to see
Leave me hanging on to the things that could have been
And leave me lonely with this note till I remember when

I remember when my childhood things did subside
I remember when the adult killed the child inside
I remember when, yes, I remember when
I remember when, yes, I remember when

All my nights alone and all the cries no one ever heard
All taught me a big lesson that love is a very big word
Always told me to look beyond and see the upper hand
What those words did to me is put a bullet in my head

I remember when my childhood things did subside
I remember when the adult killed the child inside
I remember when, yes, I remember when
I remember when, yes, I remember when

So many things we soon forget, the many things we all regret
I should have known to let you go, you should have known to let me go
The many times that we would fight, the way you keep me up all night
I should have known to let you go, you should have known to let me go
Let me go

I remember when, yes, I remember when
I remember when, yes, I remember when
I remember when, yes, I remember when
I remember when, yes, I remember when

12 I AWAKE

(1:16)

Well I awake, I pray for truth
And my truth is something I can do
I sit and think, it's on my hands
How could something miss without just one man
Time, our wasted time
We are quickly approaching the end of the line
The earth, we must prepare
But what kind of price can you put on the Earth

But we continue to wreck our planet
And we all seem to close our eyes
But as long as the freedoms couldn't stop us from whatever good
The Earth will continue to die

No, no it's not me
We only view the things that we wish to see
Where does garbage go
Outside, out of earth we don't really know
Think of just the same
I can't survive in this mess we create
No, no not again
We fight and we pillage, we will make it worse you know

Well this time this planet's alright
A place where we all can survive
I know we have come through for you
Another time will make it so
The earth will continue to thrive

13 ADAM - 12

(3:18)

Emerged and shattered life, by the police
Local papers hailed his justice, I call it murder

Dishonest, he's crying, with a gun in his hand
We found his gun was empty
He left not one demand

I watched you beat my friends to the ground
Let you get away without a sound

Intimidation is won with the weapons you possess
You walk the streets a soldier with the masses you oppress

If you're a public servant then who the fuck you listen to
Preach enough, think, but there's a point that they get through to you
Badges, your mighty shield you all hide behind
Guns already cocked and all this cut from cure you get from all this

Our lives, our lives, kiss them goodbye
The law, the law, it's their alibi
Our lives, our lives, kiss them goodbye
The law, the law, now you're stuck with the job of fixing society

You beat and you kick us we can never run away
Nothing's gonna stop me now until I've had my say
To you my noise are the problem
And you answer, twelve gauge
I'm just getting started, can't begin to express my rage

Adam 12
You're dead
It means nothing

Our lives, our lives, kiss them goodbye
The law, the law, it's their alibi
Our lives, our lives, kiss them goodbye
The law, the law, now you're stuck with the job of fixing society
