Track Name: Matilda
You can call me on the phone. You can even knock down my door. Find yourself all alone; I don’t want you anymore. Said you can’t take a hint. I’ve been on the run ever since. Re-appeared madly obsessed. Codependent and possessed.
(Maldita!) Na, na, na. (Obsession!) Na, na, na. Maldita, obsession.
You can stew and you can boil. You can threaten to cut off my balls. Reminisce of the good times and all the love you feel inside. But as you hunt me down, the glaze in your eyes says it all. Without you I can’t survive, no need for you to be alive.
It’s too late to apologize. I can see right through your disguise. You need clinical advice, medication to devise a little sanity. Do it for humanity. You’ll awake with a clearer head, fully strapped down to your bed.
Track Name: In Africa
The only thing unknown is how to heal from all the pain. Entrenched right now into the soil by European monarchies. Where hacking limbs becomes the norm to make them fall in line, and now we’re reaping what we’ve sown. We’re running out of time

In Africa, a child soldier locks and loads. In Africa, rape is a tool of war. In Africa, there are places you can go. In Africa, where hate is fomented and allowed to grow.

Not everyone’s at war. Not every country is all bad. There’s always been a glimmer of hope, co-dependent on the outside world. But then we show up and exploit, it’s resources for ourselves. So, how are things supposed to change, when our example is to blame

In Africa, religious fervor causes militancy. In Africa, young girls are currency. In Africa, don’t pretend that you can’t see. In Africa, the despair and perplexity

(horn solo)

What’s the solution to end persecution of women and minorities through state institutions? What’s the fruition after years of division in a continent through armed conflict and tense competition. Whoa!

In Africa, a child soldier locks and loads. In Africa, rape is a tool of war. In Africa, there are places you can go. In Africa, where hate is fomented and allowed to grow.
Track Name: Last Chance
Along my way. I disappeared into the night. The good times fade away and all we’re left with is a fight. I had just a chance to make this right. Just give me a chance and everything will be alright. But she said “oh no. oh no. it’s over”.

But I wanna try to put up a fight. And I won’t lie if you won’t lie.
Cause I wanna try to put up a fight. And I won’t lie if you won’t lie

I’m longing for the day when you come back into my life. But you keep pushing me away. How do we end all the strife? Can we find a way to kick it back in the sun. Just catching all the rays and then we never come undone. But she said “oh no. oh no. it’s over”.

But I wanna try to put up a fight. And I won’t lie if you won’t lie.
Cause I wanna try to put up a fight. And I won’t lie if you won’t lie

She said I’m wrong. I’m always wrong. It’s been so long since I’ve seen ya’ So damn long.

But I wanna try to put up a fight. And I won’t lie if you won’t lie.
Cause I wanna try to put up a fight. And I won’t lie if you won’t lie

Come along with me. Baby, can’t you see. We’ll be fine in the sun.
Just catching all the rays. Baby, can’t you see. We’ll be fine in the sun.
Come along with me.
Track Name: Shake It Off
People still don’t know what happened here at home, not long ago, when the vultures were unleashed to prey and feed, feed on you! Whoa!

Remember when the credit froze and your home was foreclosed? Remember when your spouse wanted a divorce and left you? There you are with a gun in your mouth, wanting to leave. Oblivious to the fact that things can change, if you believe.

Shake it off, that sense of failure. Shake it off, you’ve done your best.
Shake it off, things will get better. Shake it off, things could be worse.

And now you’re fresh out of school, no options, but includes debt so big your stress breaks through, but you don’t know what to do. That’s when the panic starts to set in. You drive for hours and you don’t know where you’ve been.

1,2, 1, 2, 3, 4! Whoa! Life isn’t as easy as I was lead to believe.
Track Name: Twisted
Checking my tone, I’m finding out what it means to be alone. Will you stand by me? If the skies get dark, will you be the light I see? And if you believe you’ve come this far just to hit the bottom. Then you just can’t see. Let’s just raise hell and the rest will be forgotten!

I’m not crazy! You think just maybe I’ll show you crazy? How’s this for crazy?

Now I’ve set the stage, they’re pushing me to the role I’m supposed to play. Can I hold my rage, if they’re the ones who are making me feel this way? Put on a happy face. I can’t show how I feel, cause I’ll never leave this place. So put the words in my mouth, twist them up and we’ll see what will come out.

I will not stand for this, I’ll shoot my mouth off.
I will not take your shit, you really pissed me off.
Track Name: Get Physical
I saw you sitting lonely, so I thought I would come over. Offer you a drink and some one to come home with. This conversation’s friendly. This conversation’s fine now. But I wanna get physical. Do you wanna get physical?

I could be your lover for just one night, it will be alright!

I hope you’re not offended by what I have suggested. But I think that you’re attracted, and I think that you’re attractive. I’m not putting pressure on you. You can do what you want to. But I wanna get physical. Do you wanna get physical?

I could be your lover for just one night, it will be alright!

When the morning comes like it always does, I will be done.
Track Name: Underdog
I never wanna take the path most travelled. So beaten up, all I see is gravel. Born and bred to cut against the grain. They point and stare calling me insane. From the start I knew that rules weren’t for me. A fight with Danny was waiting for me. Be in class, but I did no homework. Failing gym made me feel like a big jerk

Been years so long, won’t change what’s wrong and be as it may, I’ll always seize the day. What will be will be, faces staring back at me. I won’t but I can, the underdog is who I am. My advisor’s advice, I’ll be going nowhere. All my parents can do was pull out their hair. I don’t care what they say, I don’t care what they want. Gonna live my life the way I fucking want.

Two years at pubs, I was shipped to boarding school. Pre-judging this place, was not gonna be too cool. Made some friends, had some good times at no expense. Graduated 49th out of 50 kids. The only option was to go to state college. To learn about myself and gain some knowledge. How did I manage graduating in 4 years after many nights of chugging many beers.
Track Name: Inviting Disaster
My life today was wasting away. Nothing to do now and nothing to say. The question I asked would get no reply. I’m tired of hearing all of your lies

And nothing I do. Gives me a clue. There’s so many things that I couldn’t do. And I’m always awake when I’m lying in bed. So many thoughts running through my head.

And why are we inviting disaster? Inside you and me, are we? We’re inviting disaster? But I, I can’t believe why we would be inviting disaster? With no remedy for our disease. We’re inviting disaster! We’re inviting disaster!

Sometimes I feel like “what’s the deal?” I’m focused all the things that seem real. And maybe one day, I shall steal your heart again and then start to heal.

My life today was wasting away. Nothing to do now and nothing to say. The question I asked would get no reply. I’m tired of hearing all of your lies
Track Name: Chase You Around
You take it away from me. My mind, cause you’re all that I can see.
And I. I’m beginning to believe that you’re never gonna be the one to set me free.

(pre)
You always say that we should hang out.
When I try’n play that, you run in to your doubts
You always know how to keep me on the ropes
(chorus)
I’m going for the chase down-chase down, won’t ever know what I can find
Take me away now-way now, cause you’re always on my mind
I’m going for the chase down-chase down, don’t know what I can find
Take me away. … Your eyes take me to a place where my mind will always chase

Now I. I’m wondering what you’re thinking. When you walk around like you’re slaving for me, but I know that you’re faking. And I. I can’t resist your hypnotation

I’m gonna chase you around, follow your sounds to the ends of the sea.
I chase you around, follow you down. Run away with me.
Track Name: The End
I don’t wanna annoy you with my pain. Annoy you with my presence. Annoy you with my name. Is this the beginning of a perfect end. The stakes now seem different and nothing seems the same.

Now that you’re all packed, you’re never coming back, the emptiness inside takes over.
All that I once had, it’s never coming back, its locked away in the dark place in my mind.

It’s been 6 hours since you drove away, leaving my life in ruins, in total dismay. I stare at the ceiling with no end in sight. The thought of you still lingers, it lingers in my mind
Track Name: Meal For Free
Comment on my ideals and ideology, and just how little they had meant to me. You can keep on talking, but since we’ve broken up, I’m not caring. At least not as much

I’m not someone who listens well. At least not to you. Not no more.

Said some things about my past, how you knew it’d never last. Sat me on your bed and said all my kisses were made of lead. Well they weren’t, well they weren’t, well they weren’t.

I’m not someone who listens well. At least not to you. Not no more.

You said I didn’t talk enough about how I feel. Well, baby, listen up. I’m gonna scream! I’m gonna scream!

You went on a date with me just so you could eat for free. Your ex-boyfriend kicked you out, so you slept in my house and even after all of that when he asked, you took him back. What’d you take him back for, baby?

I’m gonna scream! I’m gonna scream!

I’m not someone who listens well. At least not to you. Not no more.

You said I didn’t talk enough about how I feel. Well, baby, listen up. I’m gonna scream! I’m gonna scream!
Track Name: Almost Five
It’s almost 5 and we’re on our way to the bar, cause you know it’s never far.
Since it helps with my mental scars, we’ll take my car. It’s almost 5

Raise your glasses high, high into the air. Leave your problems at the door, all the trouble and despair. Tilt your head back, don’t stop ‘til it’s gone. And if you feel you’re gonna hurl, there’s always tomorrow.

It’s almost 5 and we’re on our way to the bar, cause you know it’s never far.
Since it helps with my mental scars, we’ll take my car. It’s almost 5
And yes, now I’m off the clock and we’re heading out to the block and with maybe a little luck we’ll find my flock, it’s almost 5.

It’s that time of week. It’s finally arrived. So grab a beer, it’s crystal clear I’m gonna get drunk tonite. Raise your glasses high. High into the sky. We’ll toast again to all our friends, forget your cares tonite. So, Cheers! L’chaim! Skoll! Salud! To You! …
Track Name: Anthem
Here’s to the good times. The radio turned up so damn loud. Here’s to the bad times. Forgot the cares, but we won’t forget the sound.

(chorus)
It’s the song that plays all night. It’s the song that makes things right
It’s the song that shows the light for all the troubles that we fight
And we sing, sing for the anthem.(x3) Sing for the song that’s the anthem of our lives

Here’s to the late nights. Staying up until the job is done. Here’s to the last try. We won’t give up until the war is won.

Said the last time, this is our time. Now we won’t stay home tonite.
We live the late nights, forget the rough nights. Cause we won’t give up the fight.
