Track Name: Take
Take and take and take

Verse 1
Hoard weapons of mass consumption
Oveeuse is just the assumption.
You'll keep on taking more stuff
Cause it ain't ever enough.

A huge contender in the rat race
You can win if you keep stuffing your face.
No limit, you won't stop
consuming. Until you drop.

Chorus:
In excess of excess
A huge gluttonous mess
Take take, take and take
Tip the scales till they break.

Verse 2:
Deploy, invade and destroy.
Take the resources, drain them dry.
Spread the lies, create a need.
New host. Time to feed!

Bleed it out, suck it all up.
Make sure you get every drop.
You want it fast, you want it whole.
Leave none for the future world.
(Chorus)

Bridge:
Se-ven generations removed.
They'll be asking
"what did they do"?
With the green grass,
running water.
How do we feed our
sons and daughters?

Those sons of bitches.
Polluted the oceans
and murdered the lakes.
They burned all our trees.
All they knew was to
take and take and take and take!

In excess of excess
A huge gluttonous mess
Take take, take and take
Tip the scales till they break.
Track Name: Hopskotch
Hopskotch

Verse 1:
Your profession takes control of everything.
Work and work and then just fade away.
All attempts amount to nothing, don't say you’re not sick of trying.
Don't you wish that you could play all day?

Hopskotch all day!

Chorus:
Never mind conformity.
It'll just get in your way.
Ooooo-oh we all just want to play.

Never mind conformity.
It'll just get in your way.
Ooooo-oh we all just want to play.


Verse 2:
One of these days you’ll think of life as a game.
Use your skills to score in
the net gain.
Feed our inner child with a constant disregard for rules.
Don't you wish that you could play all day?

Hopskotch all day!

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Don’t be blinded
by what they tell us it's
total madness!
Time to break free
from these chains!

(Chorus)
Track Name: Moonshine
Verse 1:
Oh, it’s time to face the times.
We don’t just lie, we lie about lying.
Realize life is smoke and mirrors.
Blurry and vague and won’t get clearer.

Chorus:
Like trying to find your way by moonlight.
Maybe love is like moonshine.
Having it could make you dumb,
But we still need it, so bottoms up.
There is no way from here but down.

Verse 2:
So, we’ve reach the bitter end.
Our ties too frayed and never will they mend.
Get mad, sometimes, wonder how and why.
But I have let go, and moved on with my life.

(Chorus)
Track Name: Go With the Flow
Go With the Flow

Verse 1:
Distant silhouette, closing in.
Shifting as it moves toward me.
Its up to me to choose to stay.
Or I can run away.

Through minefields and barricades
it follows in my footsteps.
Always quicker than my pace and it
catches me as I finally collapse.

Half Chorus:
And if I were to lose it all.
I wouldn't try to take control.
I'd spend the time saved
keeping calm
On working out my fatal flaw.

Verse 2:
Covered my back and planned ahead
wearing heavy armour
Fully focused on the threat
A balancing act on shaky scales

Slogging through the flows of life
heavy armour sinks.
to save my skin expose myself
adapt to change and float on past the
brink.

Extended Chorus:
And if I were to lose it all.
I wouldn't try to take control.
I'd spend the time saved keeping calm
on working out my fatal flaw.

Just relax let it unfurl
Nothing I do could make the world
fit my i-de-al.
Let it go.

Go with flow, let it go. Go with flow. x2

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

(Extended Chorus)

Go with flow, let it go. Go with flow. x2
Track Name: Boring Me (Kill Me)
Boring Me (Kill Me)

Verse 1:
Standing, waiting here.
For something to happen.
People pass - ignoring me.
Shun me into nothing.

Standing, praying here.
For someone in heaven.
People pass their lives in fear of becoming something.

Chorus:
Kill me!
Kill me!
It's boring me
It's boring me!

Kill me!
Kill me!
It's boring me
It's boring me!

It's boring me.

Verse 2:
Standing, malaligned
not someone who cares.
Chances pass - pass me by.
Getting me to nowhere.

Standing, in a line.
For my luck to get here.
Losing hope and wasting time.
Wandering to any
where.

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Read a book
tore a page.
Chopped it up
on the mirrors edge.
All these dreams
So hard to buy
Swallowed my pride
And inhaled the lies.

Inhaled the lies! (X2)

(Chorus)
Track Name: Revolving Doors
Revolving Doors

Verse 1:
You’re gonna drain away,
all of my sanity.
I’m losing all control.
Why are you doing this to me.

A series of revolving doors
is all I see.
A series of revolving doors
is all it'll be.

(Chorus)
Let this be a warning
Just warnin’ you,
I’m not the type of person
to let their life go.

I’m gonna take control.
You won't have my mind.
Go and get the hell outta my life.

Verse 2: (echoes)
Prepare to be forgotten.
All gone without a trace. (gone x4)
No pleas or fake emotions.
Prepare to be erased.

A series of revolving doors
is all I see.
A series of revolving doors
is all it'll be.

(Chorus)

Bridge:
No more going back
Exactly where we split
I pray for release.
Go prey on someone else
Take your synthetic sadness,
Vanity and venom.

Keep those bones in the closet
‘cause I
don’t want ‘em.

(Chorus)

Revolving doors X4
Track Name: Hate Machine
Verse 1:
Crush: everyone in the way.
Fear: all in a day
Hate: some ideas just won't die.

Pre Chorus:
So who do you think you are?
Are you one of them or one of us?
Who do you think you are?!

Chorus:
In the family tree the apple doesn't fall far .
Worms in their bruises leaving scars .
Parents raising kids to be just as mean.
A multigeneration hate machine.

Verse 2:
Keep 'em blind and ignorant.
Make 'em weak and codependent.
Break 'em be wicked and cruel
Segregate, reinforce the rule.

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Cycles will go on forever until we break them down
Parasites will keep using us unless we tear them out

Outro:
So who do you think you are?
Are you one of them?
Who do you think you are?!

New generation, part of the family tree.
Cogs in the hate machine!
Track Name: Who Right is Whoever's Left
Who's Right is Whoever's Left

Verse 1:
Unrest is dealt with and suppressed.
In the end who's right is whoever's left.
This couldn't be the way that we
were meant to live.

Chorus:
They're not behind those bars.
So they pass more laws.
Make it wrong
to have any rights.

Lock us up shut us out.
Tape over our mouths
Make it wrong
to have any rights.

Shut up
Sit down (X2)

Verse 2: (echoes)
This police state has us no doubt
policed into a state of cop out (cop out)
They'll take our freedom, take our choice.
But don't let them take our collective voice.

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Authority turned insanity.
As soon as they approach
you're already seen as guilty.

They'll leave a lamb in a cage as lions tear it apart.

(Chorus)

Shut up
Sit down (X2)

No!

Rise up
Shut them down (X6)
