Track Name: What Now
I drank my last beer
About an hour ago
I'm going fucking crazy
Because there's nowhere left to go
There’s stains on my soul
But I can't seem to wash ‘em down
They say if it don't hurt
Then you know you're doing it wrong

So what now
What now
What now

The jukebox ain't a bully
He's just afraid to play
Roll me a quarter
For my sinful serenade
I'm looking for the Axis
It was a certain place in time
There’s nothing in the distance
I’m reaching out for the green light

What now are we supposed to do
When ambition fades away
There’s nothing left, but memories past
and ideals of yesterday
Track Name: Reckless
Had a few
He was feeling kinda’ reckless
Done this before
I should just expect it
He’s talking shit
Yeah, he’s shouting from the pulpit
He’s got a problem
But you know he’ll never shake it

How many chances do you get
Another drag off that cigarette
You had too many drinks
But you had to have one more
Acting reckless
Now your ass is out the door
Out the door
Out the door

He’s taking shots
And I think he’s lost his conscience
Falling over,
Driving drunk, and banging fat chicks
Lost his job
Now he’s living with his parents
There’s nothing left
But his thoughts and his regrets
Track Name: The Boys
God damn this purgatory
There is no hope and glory
We just piss the days away
Days away
Step in line, go and place your bets
Live life with no regrets
That’s what my old self would say
I would say

But I’m too tired to create
And too lazy to destroy
I just want to reminisce
The days when we were boys
The record player’s cracklin’
Fallen soldiers grace the scene
The night ain’t getting younger, man
And I lost sight
Of the dream

Broken hearts and bullshit lies
Another year of compromise
Is this how it’s supposed to be
Supposed to be
I’ve got my shoes, they’re worn with holes
A broken, beaten, ravaged soul
Countless miles marched, still I’m not free
You’re never free

Father Time’s a bastard
Mother Nature’s turning cold
I’m sick and fucking tired
Of growing up and getting old
Track Name: Tell Me
Tell me, if you want me, so tell me
Cause it’s time to lick my wounds
I’ve got bullet holes in my heart
Bleeding, from girls just like you

The dull pain inside resonates
The switch blade starts to cut away
I tried to hard so many times
To do the things I knew was right
Tell me, will this cycle ever end
Ever end, yeah, ever end

Roller coaster’s moving fast
Soon will crash into the ground
Suffocating from your lust
Still I wait and stick around

Tell me if you want me, so tell me

The dull pain inside resonates
The switch blade starts to cut away
Through the years and endless nights
I know I won’t give up this fight
With time to mend, I know I’ll be alright
I’ll be alright, yeah, I’ll be alright
I’m doing fine, yeah I’m doing fine
Track Name: Not So Sunny State
I saw your face
It’s not the same
I can’t believe so much has changed
I met you here
We shed those tears
Now you feel so far away

You said that you didn’t love me
You said that you didn’t need me
You said that you didn’t love me

Well…
I’m getting out of here alive
I’m getting out of here alive
I’m getting out
I’m getting out of here
I’m getting out of here alive

Pills and cocaine
I cannot stay
This party isn’t for me
Where’s all my friends
It had to end
I slept alone on that beach

I stayed up and watched the sunrise
Now it’s time to say my goodbyes
I stayed up and watched the sunrise

Not so sunny state
On the eve of my birthday
I’m getting out of here alive
Track Name: Let It Go
They’re just as bored as they look
Their eyes are red and full of remorse
Chances never took
You make your bed, phone it in everyday

Take a look and you’ll see how you lost your way
Sacrifice, trade your dreams for stability
Fix your tie now you die for the company
Die for the company
Die for the company
Let it go now
Let it go now

Johnny lost his job
He never got that raise
He’s hanging by a thread
Pinching pennies for better days

Take a look and you’ll see how you lost your way
Sacrifice, trade your dreams for stability
Sent you home, they said come back another day
Come back another day
Come back another day
Let you go now
Let you go now

So bite the bullet and bite your tongue
You’re just a number till the job is done
It’s never good enough
They use you up and they get what they want
Track Name: POF
Took a chance and I called her on the phone
Couldn’t wait to get her all alone
Set a date and I took her to the show
Made my move and then we hit the road

It makes no sense to me
And I know I’m not the type
But I broke her rule
And I spent the night

She lit some candles, took me by surprise
She told me secrets and I told her lies
I saw the bottles laying by her bed
She’s fucking crazy, but she gave good head

I know it’s late and you don’t wanna’ be alone
She held me close and she wouldn’t let me go
Morning came, it was time for me to split
Said we talk, but we both were full of shit
Track Name: The Life We Lead
I’ve gotta feeling that this game is just a losing race
Gimme the chance and I ain’t gonna hesitate
I’m getting out, while everybody wastes away
We’re moving on, oh yeah we’re gonna leave today

It’s funny how we stare into the sun until we burn
Chasing our own shadows, getting nothing in return
We can follow selfish demons, slave until we break
Or accept the life we lead and learn from our mistakes

Another day, another common tragedy
We celebrate the ugly things we’ve come to be
So close to hell, but I ain’t gonna take the fall
I’m holding on, cause no one’s gonna save us all

On broken strings and bended knees
Just give me something to believe
Our time has come to take control
I’m living life without parole

It’s funny how we stare into the sun until we burn
Chasing our own shadows, getting nothing in return
We can follow selfish demons now, slave until we break
Or accept the life we lead and learn from our mistakes
Embrace the life we lead and learn from our mistakes
Escape this dying scene and learn from our mistakes
Because this world ain’t ever gonna be the same
Track Name: Juvenile
There’s a picture of the past
That we think of everyday
Despite how much we try
It always fades away
We drank the dirty water
We choked on our words
Laughed at every corner
It wasn’t our concern
With guns to our heads
And our hands held high
You only live once
And then one day you die

Fade away
Everybody fades away
It’s never gonna be the same
It’s never gonna be the same
Gonna fade away
Just fade away
Everybody fades away
It’s never gonna be the same

And we were juvenile
Living in a state of denial
And we were juvenile
We were punch-drunk and confused
Juvenile
Living in a state of denial
And we were juvenile
We were running from the truth

Now we’re living in an age
Where the site is occupied
A lack of common sense
As we broadcast our demise
Bottled up with anger
Breaking all the rules
Medicate the mass and
Sedate the wasted youth
With guns in our hands
And our heads held high
The innocence is lost
But the spirit still survives

Juvenile
Juvenile
Juvenile
Juvenile, we’re still running from the truth
Track Name: Doubt
I saw a man
On the street today
He had a sign,
Will you be saved
The lord is coming
Yeah, he’s on his way
He’ll getcha’ there
If you lost ya’ way

Genesis and genocide
Swinging doors and changing tides
Father said
There’s a light
But it’s burned out
Tonight

They say the answers’
In the book
But I suggest
You take another look
I want the truth
But they feed us lies
While the innocent
Are victimized

Blood is shed
And tears they fall
We get knocked down
And we learn to crawl
I don’t know
What it’s all about
And I can’t help
But have my doubt
Track Name: Winchester
I haven’t felt this emptiness, for a while
I haven’t seen my mom and dad, for a while
I still have lingering regrets, for a while
There’s still a conscious world outside, for a while

Do you have a plan
‘Cause no one understands
Do you have a plan
‘Cause no one understands

Sometimes I feel like caving in
Some days I just wake up wondering
Fuck me, why do I wear the shame?
I’ve only got myself to blame

My bags are packed, it’s time to leave
The doors locked, now I’m left wandering
This is our life, it’s not a dream
Let’s let our ammunition sing

We can’t go back
We can’t go back
We can’t go back
We can’t go back

This is our life, it’s not a dream
Let’s let our ammunition sing
This is our time, we must believe
Let’s let our ammunition sing
Track Name: We Don't Know
So many feel much safer in the shelter they all know
So many people put up walls in fear of the unknown
So many try to blend the trends that they see in the crowd
But I’m the kind of guy to raise a fist and tear it down

No, we don’t know
No, we don’t know
No, we don’t know
No, we don’t know

Because this night won’t last forever
Why don’t you dance your cares away
When the lonely moon is rising
And you’re lost without a way
Is there anybody listening
Or have they gone without a trace
Because they’re praying for tomorrow
But we’re still playing for today

So many dwell on failures past, it eats away the core
So many try to comprehend a cause worth fighting for
So many of our sympathies won’t justify an end
When all I see is black and white, time and time again

Sit back
Relax
Give in
It’s all gonna pass you by

Get back
Hold fast
Fuck you
You’re not gonna change my mind

When it’s all been said and done, I know I won’t be saved
Another broken parable, but at least I’ll take the blame
I’ll ask this world a question, as I try to prove myself
Who’s begging for forgiveness, when we can’t forgive ourselves
