Track Name: Modern Life Is Well
I've been walking backwards and I've found a way to make it out alive tonight.
Swollen heels, my hands are splintered
Who decides who gets this modern life.
This is tightly wrapped around your fingers,
Don't let it it go.
Let it go and you'll be washed away by the waves.
You'll be drowned out by your own apathy.
Cause you only get what you work for.

I've been walking backwards and I've found a way to make it out alive tonight.
Swollen heels, my hand's are so splintered
Who decides who gets to see the sky

I've been walking backwards and
I've found a way to make sense of this empty seat next to me.
Swollen heels, my hands are blistered
Who decides who decides who gets this modern life.

This is tied tightly around your fingers,
Don't let it go or you'll be washed away
by the waves, you'll be drowned out in your own apathy.
Track Name: Paint it Gandhi
Now that you’ve got what you’ve wanted
Aren’t you happy? Think of how long you’ve been searching for this!
I’ve been losing my mind, Making up for lost time
searching for it

Shut your eyes, you’ve been begging for it.

Over and over again, you’ve been trying to lend a hand, but it’s not worth it.
Something I haven’t seen, somewhere I’ve never been before, searching for it.

Shut your eyes, you’ve been begging for it

This is all that I got, and it’s all that takes 4 years left alone fixin my mistakes
This is all that am, and as far I can see this is something you'd never want me to be
Open Your eyes! Take a step back, step back just to see it clearer
NOW! Open Your eyes! Take a step back, step back just to see it clearer
Cause I’ve waiting for so long
I’ve been doing this for all the wrong reasons.
Track Name: Sluge Butt
This time around I won't do what you wanted me to do as it all comes crashing down.
Down on you.
.... But I've got to get this off my back
Where there's been no disconnection, there's been some misconception.
I've been used. Just used. Thrown out like yesterday's trash,
This time around I won't do what you wanted me to do as it all comes crashing down.
Down on you.
Track Name: Jock Jams
I swear I've been through this a thousand times.

But every time its just a reason for me to forget
Everything I've learned from everyone I love.
Just push my things to the side of the room, so I can make more just for you.

Because we all need it.
We all want it so bad
Ya know we're all so
Desperate. We're so desperate.

We've bottled up beliefs and sold them cheap right on the shelves next to your groceries for your sunday feast.
But we like it! being told what we need.
It helps to make decisions while you've been losing sleep over everything.

And that's how you know...
We're so desperate.

We all want the same things.
We all need the same change
We all hate the same things
We all need the same change.

I'm so sick of this, giving in to it. This god forsaken standard of achievement.
How could you even make such a commitment, when you can't even stop smoking cigarettes.

Cause we all know that we're all so desperate. We're so desperate.
Track Name: Bensalem
Welcome to my neighborhood.
Where the air seems cleaner here.
But his town's been rusted out by cheap strip malls wholesale stores
We show up twice a year just to hear the good news.
But if its good news is bad news, it all becomes old news.

And this is how it goes. There's no answer.

So young, so anxious...
We're so unsatisfied with having everything
We play guns out front hoping that the cops to drive by.
We're sick of waiting, so we're making our fun.
Sitting in my friends house because I can't go home.

Just turn on your tv because you've been tuned out
From a society you've been locked.

And we get by, day by day.
but now we're getting out
I'm getting out

And that's just how it goes. There's no answer.
