Track Name: Next Generation
Next Generation

You make me what you want me to be
I can’t see what you steal from me
It’s not me a life of endless pretend
They script us some trash and we take it all in

Because we are here, the next generation
We’re too blind to take a stand
We will fall by the next generation
A civilization that’s caving in

The endless lies your policies mean nothing to me
Your entire life is completely run by corporate TV
Revolution is the catch phrase of the day
The education system is a fucking disgrace

Because we are here, the next generation
We’re too blind to take a stand
We will fall by the next generation
Jersey Shore and Jackass is what we’ve become

We won’t make it
Buy some shit, you’ll be ok
We won’t make it
Life is debt, just look the other way
We won’t make it
You turn your back on every fucking lie
We won’t make it
Has everyone gone completely insane!!

Because we are here, the next generation
We’re too blind to take a stand
We will fall by the next generation
Our whole world has gotten completely out of hand

Because we are here, the next generation
You sell your self-esteem and your dignity
We will fall by the next generation
Cause life is for sale and you bought right in

Because we are here, the next generation
No sense of shame or common decency
We will fall by the next generation
A complete disgrace to the whole human race

Because we are here
the next generation
Because we are here
the next generation
Track Name: Diary
Diary of a Runaway Arson

I've thought about my family
I've thought about my friends
you've got nothin to do with it
its something from within
packed up all my bags as I say
this is it for me
leaving on the next train east
caught up feeling free

Checked on all my maps and schedules
how i'm going to fend
and its slowly coming together
cant wait til this ends
FUCK ALL THE LAWS
and the people pulling me down
flicking on my bic thinking
i'm so done with this town

Let's skip town and dream of falling down
Let's skip town and dream of falling down
Let's skip town and burn it to the ground
Let's skip town

Drop your life
we may be coming home
but i'm not making promises
we'll end up where we roam
you know you're dying here
like a salmon being gutted
let's flatten this city
IT'S COLD BLOODED

Let's skip town and dream of falling down
Let's skip town and dream of falling down
Let's skip town and burn it to the ground
Let's skip town
Track Name: Witness
Witness

A witness came to my door today
Brought me the word of god didn’t know what to say
No please or thank you just fuck off and go away
Yah, religion is just another game we play

A witness came to my door today
Brought me the word of god didn’t know what to say
No please or thank you just fuck off and go away
Yah, religion is just another game we play

Don’t tell me what you believe
Just the facts that’s all I need
You can’t provide those then just go away
No reason to trust you!

You take it on faith that’s all you can do
But faith is the doorway of the fool
You lose yourself in delusion once you cross through
My evidence will crush you!

A witness came to my door today
Brought me the word of god didn’t know what to say
No please or thank you just fuck off and go away
Yah, religion is just another game we play

Your promise of eternity
just the weak hiding from reality
Wake up and take a look at world
Change will come when you open your eyes

Don’t hide behind those empty words
A book written by scared men with swords
Using it to justify their conquests
Raping, killing torture and all the rest

A witness came to my door today
Brought me the word of god didn’t know what to say
No please or thank you just fuck off and go away
Yah, religion is just another game we play

Religion rakes in the millions
and we just keep on funding them
Looks like were the crazy ones
we’ve created a hell on earth instead

And I won’t live stressing out
burning for eternity
lies will blind your mind
but the truth shell set you free

A witness came to my door today
Brought me the word of god didn’t know what to say
No please or thank you just fuck off and go away
Yah, religion is just another game we play
Track Name: We Are Strong
We Are Strong

I wake up in this world and I am just like you
Trying to find that place where I truly belong
This world is chaotic and difficult at the best of times
We all need to find that common ground

Because We Are Strong
We are individuals trying to find our way
We Are Strong
You and me

Because We Are Strong
We are the generation that will take the lead
We Are Strong
You and me

We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore
The worlds to small, we all need to walk through that same door
The courage to work together and see the strength in everyone
It’s everyone of us that makes this world go round

Because We Are Strong
We are individuals trying to find our way
We Are Strong
You and me

Because We Are Strong
We are the generation that will take the lead
We Are Strong
You and me

Theres no fear
Theres no tears
Theres no wasting of the years
Theres no regrets about yesterday

We find away
We live today
Working together this path we’ll pave
And build a new world along the way

Because We Are Strong
We are individuals trying to find our way
We Are Strong
You and me

Because We Are Strong
We are the generation that will take the lead
We Are Strong
You and me

We Are Strong
Altogether this is our world
We Are Strong
Altogether you and me
Altogether we are strong
Track Name: One More Day
One More Day

You fall asleep in a world that you don’t fit in to
Waking up to a day that you just can’t get through
You did not plan this, you did nothing, still they pick on you
Waking up you just wanna leave this life

Because it’s your life their taking away
because it’s your life their draining
because it’s your life their stealing it from you
because it’s your life their ending

You tried to fit in, you tried desperately to belong
Now your silent, you try to become invisible
Ignoring you is the best that you would ever hope for
Tomorrow they attack for another day

Because it’s your life their taking away
because it’s your life their draining
because it’s your life their stealing it from you
because it’s your life their ending

Because it’s not
just another lousy day
it’s your life
and they've taken it away

Everyday you try to hide it
everyday you dig deep inside
A feeling you can’t escape it
and there's no other way
But to take your life.....

No one to talk to you are completely alone
The pills are there, your ready just not today
Will it always be like this, will you feel this way in 5 years time
One more day you’ll give it one more try

Because it’s your life their taking away
because it’s your life their draining
because it’s your life their stealing it from you
because it’s your life their ending
Track Name: Love Walmart
Love Walmart

Welcome to walmart I love you, I really do to tell the truth.
Why look at me with scornful eyes, about my past I will not lie.
I was a criminal of deathly crimes, I possessed the devils eyes.
Welcome to walmart I love you, won’t you please come inside!

Welcome to walmart I love you, I really do and you should too.
We roll back prices just for you, yet you treat me like a fucking tool.
I havent done anything, yet you judge and discriminate.
We took your jobs and your lives, this is corporate greed for you.

Cause corporate greed is how we see, how we live, how we breathe.
It’s the basis of our countries.... of this worlds economy.
I cant stop it, you cant stop it, we cant stop it, its here to stay.
Tell me to accept the world how it is, FUCK THAT.

Welcome to walmart I hate you, I really do, you should (hate me) too.
We’ve done nothing but fuck with you, although our prices are pretty good.
We’ve drawn away your customers, now even you are shopping here
This is how we steal your lives, this is how we survive!

Cause corporate greed is how we see, how we live, how we breathe.
It’s the basis of our countries.... of this worlds economy.
I cant stop it, you cant stop it, we cant stop it, its here to stay.
Tell me to accept the world how it is, FUCK THAT.
Track Name: Meltdown
Meltdown

Trying to make it on your own
Leaving-home for the first time
Heading out to find your dream
But your life-is-already-far behind

Societies system laid-out-for-you
Your freedoms fake and will come with a price
The trap is set and soon you will find
A life already far behind

A working class wage
Will keep you in line
Your net worth to society
Is to shut up and do as you’re told

Stripped humanity
Stripped it to the very core
Stole its ambition
And kicked love out the fucking door

A working class wage
Is what you were designed for?
It’s your calling in life
To just die

Crossed the stage diploma in hand
You quickly fell down the rabbit hole
Endless jobs got-you-nowhere yet that’s all you could have-hoped-for

A lifestyle obsession
For an entire wage-slave generation
forever working jobs you hate
through many lies they will control your fate

A working class wage
Is all that was waiting for you
You spent your life watching every game
fucking glued to the tube

A working class wage
with closed eyes you took it all in
An education system shaped you
what to think, how to look and what to do

A working class wage
The system took advantage of you
It’s your calling in life
To just die

And you will never live

I say never be complete,
This is your life and it's ending
one minute at a time
While we sleep the planets bleeding

Time to wake up and take notice
Time to grow up and evolve,
Cast your fear to the side
let the chips fall where they may

A working class wage
Will keep you in line
Just shut up and do as you’re told

A working class wage
A middle class economy
Struggling your whole life
Is the only way it could be

Insane humanity
Never learning how to live
Greed and profits at the core
Ethics tossed out the fucking door

A working class wage
Is what you were designed for?
It’s your calling in life
To just die
Track Name: Get Off My Cloud
Get Off Of My Cloud"

I live in an apartment on the ninety-ninth floor of my block
And I sit at home looking out the window
Imagining the world has stopped
Then in flies a guy who's all dressed up like a Union Jack
And says, I've won five pounds if I have his kind of detergent pack

I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud, baby

The telephone is ringing
I say, "Hi, it's me. Who is it there on the line?"
A voice says, "Hi, hello, how are you?"
Well, I guess I'm doin' fine
He says, "It's three a.m., there's too much noise
Don't you people ever wanna go to bed?
Just 'cause you feel so good, do you have
To drive me out of my head?"

I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud baby

I was sick and tired, fed up with this
And decided to take a drive downtown
It was so very quiet and peaceful
There was nobody, not a soul around
I laid myself out, I was so tired and I started to dream
In the morning the parking tickets were just like
A flag stuck on my window screen

I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Don't hang around, baby, two's a crowd
