Track Name: Quit Your Day Job
We all put on faces
just to earn wages
breaking our backs
just to appease the man

work til you get ill
at least it pays the bills
hold on for dear life
whether you like it or not

No way
thats such insane
bullshit

Youll find your soul at lost and found
with all the others gagged and bound
waiting for the sweet release of death

just quit

or retirement if that comes first
those golden years can be the worst
if you dont let your passion rule your life

every second you spend there
makes it harder to take care
of your body and mind
and thats just a shame

but im lucky to have work
and get treated like a jerk
the salary is good
so life is ok

No way
thats insane

Youll find your soul at lost and found
with all the others gagged and bound
waiting for the sweet release of death

just quit

or retirement if that comes first
those golden years can be the worst
if you dont let your passion rule your life
Track Name: My Misinformed Life
My own mind is best at leading me astray
ive made mistakes but they all led me to today
and i cant regret the things i cant ever change

the bridge is broken and i cant slow down
into the abyss
my misinformed life
the light is darkest when no ones around
what did i miss?
My misinformed life

a story is best when the ending is open i say
so why should my life go some predetermined way
i fuck up so i can evolve within

the bridge is broken and i cant slow down
into the abyss
my misinformed life
the light is darkest when no ones around
what did i miss?
My misinformed life
Track Name: Antisocial Network
Sign on and space out
thats what its all about
they want to control you
so you never get out

use my own habits
for advanced infomatics
it doesnt concern me
at least i get my fix

Every time i watch the sky
i see red and charcoal gray
since the antisocial network became self aware

fear these network things
for they have no feelings
theyll torch this world and create one steady silence

we all dug our own graves

now the networks inside you
adjusting your world view
to see a future
where your minds enslaved

it wont be too long
til your brain is shut down
your body is lifeless
a robot like them

Every time i watch the sky
i see red and charcoal gray
since the antisocial network became self aware

fear these network things
for they have no feelings
theyll torch this world and create one steady silence

i cant afford to cut that cord
it keeps me from getting bored
my brain plugged in
never have my own thoughts again

is it a sin to just give in
and just say ok you win
my brain plugged in
never have my own thoughts again

denied...
Track Name: Standard Deviation
sit back and grab a glass of wine
and listen to stories of a different time
full of broken bottles and big bonfires
we drank all night til we got tired

then we cracked another beer
because leaving early was for queers
and smoked a joint of real bad weed
that came in a big brick full of seeds

we were always the kids hangin out in the woods
drinkin and smokin every weekend up to no good
it was all good times
until the police arrived
it was standard deviation
and we survived

and then its back to the liquor store
to find someone who looks twenty four
and get some smokes and cheap whisky
to make tonight a real party

back to the woods to do some shots
then terrorize the parking lots
shopping cart wars sounds like fun tonight

we were always the kids hangin out in the woods
drinkin and smokin every weekend up to no good
it was all good times
until the police arrived
it was standard deviation
and we survived

then its time to get more grass
what about that kid from spanish class?
sketchy mall guy is his bro
in the starter jacket by unos

i see some lights is it rent a cops?
shit mall security dont stop
just act real cool like they arent there

we were always the kids hangin out in the woods
drinkin and smokin every weekend up to no good
it was all good times
until the police arrived
it was standard deviation
and we survived

now im so wasted
completely out of my head
whos got that bong
we made in science class?

Four or five more hits
some girl just flashed her tits
i guess high school was better
than i realized

we were always the kids hangin out in the woods
drinkin and smokin every weekend up to no good
it was all good times
until the police arrived
it was standard deviation
and we survived
Track Name: Blackheart
you cant absolve when you dont try
to right the wrongs in life
its your fault not just bad luck

sometimes im surprised
but people really suck
i should know by now
to choose my friends wisely

show me dont lie
whats deep inside
black
yeah thats right
black
as the night

it takes some time but wounds can heal
but when they open again
they sting worse than ever before

tell me what you get
from not giving a shit
when failures not your own
and your lifes just peachy

show me dont lie
whats deep inside
black
yeah thats right
black
as the night
Track Name: The Miracle of Strife
Antagonize then mobilize the reasons never materialize
til thousands are dead and memoirs are published

our reputations our obligation not the indigenous population
you know that things are bad when your nicknames great satan

its the miracle of strife
how can you put a price on a human life?
Its the miracle of strife
mankind its own biggest threat to survive

these wars they never end
not our fault its always them

we prophesize their better lives with our all knowing eyes
because our ways the best and the proof is our happiness

but more is less and less is more what is sufficient anymore
to prove quality of life whatever that even is

well give it all we got
if for better or for naught

the miracle of strife
how can you put a price on a human life?
the miracle of strife
mankind its own biggest threat to survive

these wars they never end
not our fault its always them

there is no return
once blood has been spilled
where do we go now?
there is no return
Track Name: Burn Notice
You dont need to tell me
because i can read your mind
you think that youre smarter
than the remainder of mankind

but thats not true too bad for you
quite the opposite in fact
you need to look into
a mirror and reflect

so go ahead and get your laughs
soon will be your turn
they will come from miles away
just to watch you burn

i see you have a mission
to ruin others lives
i have a suspicion
youll pay for that in time

just do unto those you knew
the way you would have liked yourself
but i know you wont follow
my advice and burn in hell

so go ahead and get your laughs
soon will be your turn
they will come from miles away
just to watch you burn
Track Name: Alan Thicke, Famous Television Dad
full house house full of bullshit
danny tanners my first target

punch your throat and smash your face
your parenting skills are a disgrace
