Track Name: 'Murica
let's live it up
like today is your last day cause it might be
i'd hate to die a selfish jerk who lived for just me
that's not the way i'll die, so that's not the way i'll live
you can sit down and kick back or you can join in

sometimes i lose my faith in mankind
watching the way we treat each other because we think
we know just what's best 'cause we think we know it all
i say let's ditch this vicious cycle
let's make an effort to always think before we do
whatever we want, self-entitled america

the more you take from the people around you the more they'll hate your guts
we're meant to give to each other so i'm gonna give it all 'til there's nothing left
if you feel like you can't give any more, you just gotta tap into the source of love
"hey J, what's the source of love?" ask me in the pit

go back to your pathetic little group of other like-minded selfish pricks
we won't deal with your ungrounded notion of superiority
it's not welcome here, and neither are you if you don't quit your incessant
noise - filth - your vanity
it makes us sick so clean up your act before you
burn every bridge - can't turn back
make your choice it's time

easily distracted by wealth and riches, power and fame
you think you've got it all, but you've only got a soiled name
the things you strove for will be the things you'll die for
i hope you see you only have yourself to blame

sometimes i lose my faith in mankind
watching the way we treat each other because we think
we what's best 'cause we think we know it all
i say let's ditch this vicious cycle
let's make an effort to always think before we do
whatever we want, self-entitled america
Track Name: You are a Codfish
i want to be young and have fun

go to school, get a wife
work a job, die alone
if you want to limit yourself
then knock yourself out but
where i come from
youth is the only rule

ran away, from my home
on the day, i was born
wanted no part of it
i'll never grow up
if you wish it
join me at your own risk

tonight
we've got quite the trip on our hands
we fly
blur the boundaries of time and space and
everything you thought you knew
will blow away all you need to do is
let go of your preconceptions
everybody hang on no exceptions

oh the cleverness of me
let's hang our hammocks in the sky
just stars as far as you can see
i bet you didn't know you that you knew how to fly
there's something magical about this place
all it was missing was your pretty face
a day, a year, a lifetime's well spent
here with me, so don't leave, Wendy

yeah it's not perfect here
savages, pirateers
if it scares you
we've probably got it but they'll
never be a
match for me and the boys

tonight
we've got quite the fight on our hands
we fly
into battle we'll settle the score and
send those scumbag pirates back to
where they came from then i'd like you
to join me in gallavanting
all this ruckus reminds me of one thing

oh the cleverness of me
somehow i got you at my side
there's something in you i've never seen
i don't really understand it but i'll try
in the corner of your mouth there's something there
and i want to make it mine, does this mean i care?
nah, no way, i don't feel, but i
like you here, so don't leave, watch out!

look at em tremble! they know what's coming!
put up your swords boys but this one's mine
proud and insolent youth, prepare to meet thy doom
dark and sinister man
bring it on mother

oh the cleverness of me
let's hang our hammocks in the sky
just stars as far as you can see
i bet you didn't know you that you knew how to fly
there's something magical about this place
all it was missing was your pretty face
a day, a year, a lifetime's well spent
here with me, so don't leave
wait, what's your name?
Track Name: Oi!
i wonder what it's like to fall asleep at night and not worry about you
and all the things we used to do
i've thought about our days, was it me who made the mistake?
but the past is over and done now, and i'm over it

over it over it (gotta move on with my life)
over it over it (not wasting any more of my time)
over it over it (the next thing i do)
over it over it (it's not gonna involve you)

what's it gonna take, what's it gonna take
to make me forget?
what's it gonna take, what's it gonna take
'cause i'm over this

my sleepless nights are over, the time is now all mine
i'm focused on the future, i've left it all behind
i'm done with all the thinking, it just wasn’t meant to be
the past is over and done now, it's time to move on

over it over it (gotta move on with my life)
over it over it (not wasting any more of my time)
over it over it (the next thing i do)
over it over it (it's not gonna involve you)
i now know what to do
'cause i've found somebody new

when i focus on the future, i find out quickly i'm not too sure
of where i'll be in two more years, or if i'll even be in contact with my so-called peers
but i'm finding out the truth is love is the only thing worth living in this
broken world with all us messed up kids, so it's important for me that i remember this:

i'm over it
Track Name: Z for Zendetta
i've got a vendetta
this complacency can't go on
inaction facilitates murder
they're killing the arts the heart beat of mankind
with our indifference in the form of a 9 mil barretta
held to the head of our hopes and our dreams
and our apathy pulls the trigger
it's time for action, so be creative
they just have to keep us down
so i say that it's time to make our stand

be free a revolution is
taking place we're breaking faces for what they've done to
make us think that we can't accomplish our dreams
who are you to dictate what we can and cannot do
you'll see our resolution to
make our mark is all we need to overthrow your
cookie-cutter empire of phonie artists
get replaced bro
music frees us all
i hope you see it's time to have no fear
let's make it right
we only get one life

don't be fooled you're capable of more than our culture
wants you to think that you're just another regular consumer
if you've got it in your bones then it's high time you
put it to work, show us your stuff, like it or not art
is what makes us unique, monkeys with style
if you don't use it you lose it, then you might as well be swingin on vines
flinging handfuls of shameful garbage
don't stop 'til you get enough

see i've got a vendetta
this complacency can't go on
inaction facilitates murder
they're killing the arts the heart beat of mankind
with our indifference in the form of a 9 mil barretta
held to the head of our hopes and our dreams
and our apathy pulls the trigger
it's time for action, so be creative
ideas are bulletproof
Track Name: Cardio Hamartia
if you've read a history book, listened to the news, or spent enough time around a child,
you know that we are born selfish.
we enter the world grasping and struggling to get things our way,
stepping on who ever we have to to get to where we want to be.
it's natural to us to spout hate and wage war.
the "good" which any person may intend to do or be is
faulty in its premise, false in its motive, and weak in its implementation.
it's pandemic, it's in each of our hearts, and the cure is elusive.

can you feel it beat?
it breaks, it shakes, it seeks a cure for the disease
infected
the tragic flaw of our existence, i don't know if i can resist it!
genetic
hamartia

where your heart lies, there your actions speak
so it seems that i've encountered a disconnect
i swear my heart floats, but then my actions sink
i'm drowning in my regrets
yeah i love you, but i'll hurt you
it happens every time i swear i'm
flawed, i'm broken, failing, falling
catch me at the bottom of my divebomb spiral

it beats, it breaks, it shakes, it seeks a cure for the disease
infected
the tragic flaw of our existence, i don't know if i can resist it!
genetic
hamartia

with one heart we could beat this
are you with me? are you with me?
don't tolerate indifference
are you with me? are you with me?

like puzzle pieces our hearts
they form a larger image
an image of perfection
we can't achieve on our own
to cure our hearts of this curse
we need to share our burdens
our problems can not prevail
against our united hearts
i think i've found the answer
to cure our common illness
we have to stand together
we have to love each other
