Track Name: Common Ground
Witnessed a man hung in the street,
I saw it all from 20 feet, away from me
Strung up for everyone to see.
Let that be a lesson to my peers,
Been in this town for 20 years, no one veers,
Respect created by fear,
Don't you dare talk about what if,
Your life will always be this, you'll equal shit,
To wonder puts your life at risk.

(Chorus)
As you can clearly see, your not allowed to leave,
Ask not where you could be, your not allowed to...

You'll do your job, you'll fall in line,
Your buddy's not that far behind,
Don't waste your time, your purpose here has been designed.
So there's your message crystal clear,
Don't ever try to persevere, you belong right here,
Your not fuckin going anywhere.

(Chorus)
(Bridge)

So what the hell'd we learn today?
Don't worry bout what you get paid,
Your here to stay, you'll work here till your old and grey.

(Chorus)
Track Name: No Regets
We're all fucked up in our own way.
Living through this shit everyday.
You're all fucked up!
Track Name: Soggy Waffles
Ahhh (I know what you want)
Ahhh (but I don't really care)
Ahhh (fuck you I don't care)
Ahh
Track Name: Old News
Intimidation at a peak, you're too scared your wills too weak. I can't believe you were my friend, maybe one day nope never again, old friend. You're dead to me.

No reason why you crossed the line,
Its easy to pretend.
That everything will be fine,
Well no this is the end.

Intimidation at a peak, you're too scared your wills too weak. I can't believe you were my friend, maybe one day nope never again, old friend. You're dead to me.
Track Name: Lying Through Your Teeth
Well look at you, searching for a fix. You're a fucked up drug addict.
I didn't want to be the one, the one to call you out. Remember all those times you said that you would never try those things?

(Chorus)
You're lying through your teeth again, lying through your teeth.

Can't look at you, face down in the sheets. Drowning in misery.
I didn't wanna be the one to find you in his bed after all those times you said, you said that you loved me.

(Chrorus)

Now look at you, face down in the ditch. Soaked in your own shit.
I didn't want to be the one to find you lying dead after all those times you said, you said you stopped using.

(Chorus x2)
Track Name: 9 Times Outta 10
We'll have smoked the other is to smoke, I drank all there is to drink. I'm passing out for an hour or so, so don't interrupt my sleyep. I've said what I had to say I've done my part today. This one right here's a sing along so repeat after me. (×2)
Track Name: Fucked Up
It ain't that fun to be fucked up. It ain't that fun to be fucked up, now is it?
You've had too much, you're out of touch, can't stand up straight, fading away, your close to death, can't catch your breath, no turning back from this point.
It ain't that fun to be fucked up, it ain't that fun to be fucked up now is it? It ain't that fun to be fucked up, it ain't that fun to be fucked up how is it?
Track Name: Lost Wallet
We offer a better product, we offer a better taste. We offer top opinion, yeah we offer a better fate.

And we know (you'll buy all of this shit, you'll buy all of this shit) (×4)

I don't want to be the one, buying into someones fun. They've created Master plans, you refuse to understand.

We offer certain comfort. we offer afterlife.
We offer you no logic, but we'll offer you advice.

And we know ( you all believe this shit, you all believe this shit) (×4)

I don't want to be the one, blinded by the holy Sun. they've created story books, look how many lives it's took.

(Bridge)

I don't want to be the one, held back by these ancient thoughts. We'll create a better path, if we just get off our ass.

We offered you our country, we offered loyalty. You took all of our money, you fuckin spit right in our face.
Track Name: The Lead Balloon
We're told that it will fly. No one thinks twice as we proceed to climb inside. Not everyone believes, yet here they are standing right next to you and me. Strap on your safety belt, and hold on tight because we're sinking straight to hell. All hope has left the room. All aboard and welcome to the Lead Balloon.

We can't fly this Lead Balloon, no matter what we're told to do. It's not a pessimistic View, it's a fact that sad but true. Even though where on this ride, and some of you have hopes up high. We can no longer pretend, that we'll survive this in the end. (×2)

We cannot fly, fly this Lead Balloon.
We're all doomed.
