Track Name: Dummy
victims only need apply
fear question wonder why
looking backwards deep inside
memoirs of a genocide
candle burning power low
no rehearsals before the show
luck is gone youth pissed away
forgotten dreams of yesterday

since the earth has been destroyed
the loss of life for girls and boys
the mascot has been betrayed
better plans have not been made
a suitable solution for greedy needs
kill the flock to satisfy the beast
retributions must be made
the rich must get paid 

dose the good of the many out way the good of the few
(your gasping for air)
does the good of me out way the good of  you
do you know who you are, do you like what you see
(your gasping for air)
do you have any idea what you use to be
listen up dummy can you hear the noise
(your gasping for air)
listen up dummy it’s not too late
all your mistakes and sins you own 
(your gasping for air)
your gonna reap just what you’ve sown

joy and hope have been erased
only the smell remains
gifts wasted on empty souls
the parts do not fill the whole
final thoughts they kiss goodbye
strap them down, watch them fry
eternity has lost her way
humans still searching for the grays 
origami of the mind
relative in clockwork time
Xerox thoughts and broken dreams
leaching off of better things

dose the good of the many out way the good of the few
(your gasping for air)
does the good of me out way the good of  you
do you know who you are, do you like what you see
(your gasping for air)
do you have any idea what you use to be
listen up dummy can you hear the noise
(your gasping for air)
listen up dummy it’s not too late
all your mistakes and sins you own 
(your gasping for air)
your gonna reap just what you’ve sown

we are the exhibit in your factory                           
we are the life you lead of gluttony
we are the malnourished for beauty sake            
there’s never been so much at stake
 
i make no apologies
i swore i’d never tell
now i’m back at the beginning
and it’s just as well
i remember when and i remember why
i wanna pass this on before i die
listen up dummy can you hear the noise
listen up dummy it’s not too late
all your mistakes and sins you own
your gonna reap just what you’ve sown
 
dose the good of the many out way the good of the few
(your gasping for air)
does the good of me out way the good of  you
do you know who you are, do you like what you see
(your gasping for air)
do you have any idea what you use to be
listen up dummy can you hear the noise
(your gasping for air)
listen up dummy it’s not too late
all your mistakes and sins you own 
(your gasping for air)
your gonna reap just what you’ve sown
Track Name: Undertow No. 5
i gotta get back my photograph i’m riding on a sea of change
i’m ready for the remedy, now stick it in my vein
she was always wicked, she was trying to explain
she was trying to remain, but she lost to the undertow
she could never know, what the truth will always show
what the truth will always know, well it all comes round about

there's no conclusion just the aftermath
it's sort of funny can’t explain
i gotta get back to the underground and stick it in my vein
she kept on falling down, then she landed on her head
then she ended up dead, and i couldn't really help her out
she could never know, what the truth will always show
what the truth will always know, well it all comes round about

she lost to the undertow
she lost to the undertow
she lost to the undertow
the girl we never...
Track Name: Vertigo
feed us some sparkles
bleed from your eyes
in a carnival of souls were
no one survives
greed of dead film stars
tear yours apart
in the center of your hate
devour the heart
feed us bloody nectar of forgotten yesterdays
feed us bloody nectar of forgotten yesterdays

feed us some sparkles
bleed from your eyes
in a carnival of souls were
everyone dies
greed of dead film stars
rip yours apart
in the center of your hate
devour the heart
feed us bloody nectar of forgotten yesterdays
bleed us sticky skarrs of long forgotten days
Track Name: The Surgeon's Photo
no occasion just a brand new season to start a classic war
here we go back up from the bottom and we don't know what for
ketch a breeze from beating hearts drifting all alone
fired hands hold on to the body watching for a tender moan
join us
join us
suck the lust

a young woman hides the bones of a monkey just like her father before
for sale is eternal salvation you find the metaphor
sticky heads and naked mendings of old world mother clone
a second skin of bloody kisses is sending the children home
join us
join us
suck the lust

ashes to ashes dust to dust
ashes to ashes rust to rust
ashes to ashes dust to dust
join us suck the lust

i wanna thank you for this fantasy of things that you adore
useless are the wisdom's of science blinded and ignored
a little time and to many hours short changed we come undone
here ill stand in the final moments waiting for the black sun
join us
join us
suck the lust

become one part of the none
become one part of the none
good for all none no at all
good for all none no at all
join us
join us
suck the lust
Track Name: Cheer Up
you think i’m scared of girls, but i’m not afraid of you
do you know what i would do, if i could get to you?
you smell so sweet i’m tempted, tempted to taste
let my fingers trace, all over the place
oh yeah oh yeah

i like your fur and you, you wear it oh  so well 
you’ve got me under your spell, it’s such a pretty hell
so hold me in your arms, come on, i wanna feel your disease
i’m begin baby please, oh you bring me to my knees
oh yeah come on baby, baby don't stop now
oh yeah baby don't stop now

well come and take a chance to see what we could be
baby can’t you see, just what you do to me?
i want you to want me, like i want you
and i want you, i only want you
oh yeah come on baby, baby just like that now
come on baby, baby don't stop now
i like it
i like it
like that now
i like it
just like that
Track Name: The National Anthem
ignorance is the plea of the weak
to many shepherds are raping the sheep
no excuses no need for remorse
violence is the god given course

i am big brother’s son
generals orders “kill everyone”
we pledge allegiance to bullets and guns
we are the death pilots
we are the death pilots
 
it’s not the size its the quantity killed
protect the sick and the mentally ill
truth justice and the american way
now get out there and make the enemy pay
 
i am big brother’s son
generals orders “kill everyone”
we pledge allegiance to bullets and guns 
we are the death pilots
we are the death pilots

i pledge allegiance 
i pledge allegiance to bullets and guns
i pledge allegiance to the united snakes of america
i pledge allegiance 

i am big brother’s son
generals orders “kill everyone”
we pledge allegiance to bullets and guns
we are the death pilots
we are the death pilots


the crowds made a strange hand noise
they’re heart worms withered in bile
the crowds made a strange hand noise
their prayers answered with gunshots
and the old man cranked the foul machine
as the sun blessed the deceivers
and the old man cranked the foul machine
as the son left the believers
Track Name: To Whom It May Concern
i used up all my razors and i bleached my finger tips
i was born again threw chemistry for a second chance at this
i bought a brand new hope, for only $2.53
and threw away my ego, she always made me bleed
i saw an old misfortune she was siting on the curb
i asked her for directions, she said strait on out of here
to whom it may concern
it matters not to me
i’m staring back at you threw the static on tv

the leaves are golden brown rusted from the rain
my synchronized watches are ticking fast again
we started out in kansas with a suit case full of dreams
i’ve never seen the ocean but i’ve heard there better things
the funeral was on thursday early august afternoon
the caskets open reflection looked just like me and you
to whom it may concern
it matters not to me
i’m staring back at you threw the static on tv

spiders eggs hatch in my ears
two cups of adrenalin and a dash of fear
is it raining there for you
it happens to me when i think of you
the telephone is ringing
i called my self at home
redefining stubborn ignorance
we all die alone
like the sound of broken glass
and the songs they never play on the radio
on the radio
on the radio
on the radio
to whom it may concern
it matters not to me
i’m staring back at you threw the static on tv
Track Name: Ordinary Things
this feels so good how can it be wrong
take my hand and just hold on
when i look into your eyes and you smile back at me
i know it's only lies but it makes me happy

it's the ordinary things that i see
the way things change but are always the same
it's the ordinary things that i see
the way things change but are always the same

i don't want to wake up to see i lost my teeth in my sleep
when i've still got so much life to live and love to give
it's time to stand up and fight for what's right
i still believe in me and you together we can make it through

it's the ordinary things that i see
the way things change but are always the same
it's the ordinary things that i see
the way things change but are always the same

just for a moment just let me see
ordinary things
just for a moment you an me
ordianry things

you were beautiful in the morning light
and you slept so soundly all through the night
it's an ordianry thing just an ordinary thing
the ordinary things they make it all worth while
the ordinary things are worth while
the ordinary things are worth while
it's the way things change
Track Name: The Queen of Softcore
i went and got a shovel
to dig her up in my mind
the queen of softcore
i just wan't in time

whatever happen to us
whatever happen to us
whatever happen to us
whatever happen to us

she tried to fight back tears

she's the queen of softcore
she's the queen of softcore
she's the queen of softcore
can you remember why
can you remember why
no
can you remember why

whatever happen to us
whatever happen to us
whatever happen to us
whatever happen to us

don't try to tell me you can't remember her name
the queen of softcore
don't say i'm too old the sayings always change
the queen of softcore
the queen of softcore
there's gotta be a way
the queen of softcore

whatever happen to us
whatever happen to us
whatever happen to us
whatever happen to us

in his heart's a picture
she's fighting back tears
in his heart's a picture
we're almost out of time
in his heart's a picture
she's fighting back tears
in his heart's a picture
in his heart
Track Name: Bye Bye My Baby
i want to make her mine
i want to make her mine
i want to make her all mine
oh look what she's done
oh look what she's done
oh look at that son of a gun

in a kissing booth she pissed away her youth that's the story that i heard
she's on a bender oh a twice offender and she's coming up on her third

bye bye my baby
baby bye bye
bye bye my baby
baby bye bye, baby bye bye
baby bye bye, baby bye bye

she looks so pretty
oh so pretty
she looks so pretty when she's praying for me
does she hurt like i do
does she hurt like i do
does she hurt like i do
does she want to

in a kissing booth she pissed away her youth that's the story that i heard
she's on a bender oh a twice offender and she's coming up on her third

bye bye my baby
baby bye bye
bye bye my baby
baby bye bye, baby bye bye
in a kissing booth she pissed away her youth
baby bye bye, baby bye bye
she's on a bender oh a twice offender
