Track Name: The Rotten Generation
We're losing the war. Not for long anymore.
I have the feeling I'll win until my life becomes a bore.

I'm on my way.

She's altered my path. A billion rooftop baths.
And now I've sent my best to die for something that won't last.
I can justify. Deny, deny, deny.
And I'll repeat it so often the truth becomes a lie.

I'm on my way.

The rotten generation. We all love blood and sins.

I've lost my way.
Track Name: Government Stretchmarks
Liars and thieves, like actors and politicians.
All we know is pretend and taking everything.
Cradles and graves, assuming you reach the first one,
All paid for giving out what we take.

I control all your means
I control all your ways today
And I'll make you need me.
I control everything
I control it and I know the way
And I'll make you love me

Pick and choose which rules we follow ourselves,
Written in code far too long to read.
Cause and effect, often we're both of them.
I'll pause for effect you won't figure it out.

I control all your means
I control all your weighs today
And I'll make you need me.
I control everything 
I control it and I know the way
And I'll make you love me

Progress, it comes from us.

Death and taxes I'll bring them both to you.
Then tax your death. You know it's a sweet gig.
Fires and streets the promise is never kept.
All the work of these fine idiots.

I control all your means
I control all your ways today
And I'll make you need me.
I control everything
I control it and I know the way
And I'll make you love me

Ups and downs they don't hurt me much.
Come back around, pull the lever for me.
Liars and thieves.
Track Name: Prefer
What's a man to do without a fight?
All knowledge that springs from all headlines.
Only hope to argue with you tonight.
Please don't shake the tightly-sealed, closed mind.

I prefer none. Don't let them waste my time.
I prefer none. Don't let them take my life.

What am I to do without a group?
Minds aligned and filled with their own truth.
Only hope to defend the party line.
Pay my dues and support all their designs.

I'd rather not belong.
Track Name: Few & Far
I try to get out. I can't handle all the yelling.
They'll come and force me now. I'm not doing what they're telling.

And I hate it

I look around at everyone who hates me.
They're ready and lining up to control and/or berate me.

And I hate it

I step out to find a breath of fresh air.
So few and far between some times I think it's not there.

And I love it
Track Name: In Slow Motion
At times, we get along fine.
You read my mind.

He is not one of us, that we live for.
Track Name: Like Flies
I, I came into your town.
Yeah you'll never do what's right.
I, I really hate your town

So all you wanted was a little time.
And if that's the whole point did you have to take mine?
If that's all you wanted discard me when you're through.
And the way you see it it was all just for you.

I take back the care I gave.
Why? You all do it every time.
Try there's nothing to salvage and save.

So all you wanted was to waste some time.
And if that's the whole point did you have to take mine?
If it's all you wanted discard me when you're through.
And the way you see it, it's just something for you.

And I'm sick of all the smiles and I'm tearing down your ride.
And I'm sick of the fake smiles and I'll watch you dropping,
Dropping like flies.

I will never bring you harm,
Or anything else at all.
I would have moved the world for you, no more.

And so all you wanted was to waste some time.
And if that's the whole point did you have to take mine?
If it's all you wanted discard me when you're through.
And the way you see it, it was something for you.

And I'm sick of all your smiles and I'm tearing down your ride.
And I'm sick of the fake smiles and I'll watch you dropping,
Dropping like flies.
Track Name: Crackers
I saw you the other day.
I hid behind a cracker display.
Not to hide the food I choose.
I just don't like seeing you.

You made it so clear that you don't care.
It's best we don't speak anymore.
Especially not in this store.
So I'll hide until you're in a line.
Even then I'll take my sweet time.

I see you brought your kids with you.
So this might take an hour or two
I bet they're jerks like their old man.
I hope they throw all the tantrums they can.

You made it so clear that you don't care.
It's best we don't speak anymore.
Especially not in this store.
So I'll hide until you're in a line.
Even then I'll take my sweet time.

Out of spite you took my steak.
I watch everything you take
You take, you take you take

Yeah we're fine to let it by.
Yeah we're fine to let it die.
Track Name: Stupidest
Point it, point it at me.
Point your stupid, stupid finger at me.
Blame it, blame it on me.
Just like every last time we disagree.

You wonder how you got where you are.
I'll tell you now, if you understand.
It's 'cause you're stupid.
And that's all there is.

Take it, take it from me
As you threaten to destroy my property.
Hold it, hold it so close.
All the things that make your life a giant mess.

You wonder how you got where you are.
I'll tell you now, if you understand.
It's 'cause you're stupid.
And that's all there is.

Stupid can be fixed.
The trouble is
The only one who can
Is stupid.

You wonder how you got where you are.
I'll tell you now, if you understand.
It's 'cause you're stupid.
And that's all there is.
Track Name: Dead Weight
She don't know you.
Couldn't care less if you exist.
You open your eyes and
Everything is her.

You wait for the day to come,
When you can be a part of her life.
It could be true now,
If she would only change her mind.

She don't love you.
It makes it all easier on her.
To her you're dead weight,
Side effect of a night a while ago.

But you know that day will come if
Time can just keep on rolling for you now.
She'll pull you to her and say that,
You were right all along.

But she don't love you.
It makes it all easier on her.
To her you're dead weight,
As she uses her choice to take all of yours.
Track Name: Strange Beings
Strange beings are,
All around me now.
I'm not one of them.
I don't like them.

Being here the last time, I put all my mind to rest.
Being near the last time, I put all my trust in it.

They amplify their sound.
They carry on and on.
I won't stand for it.
I don't do that.

There's some lesson here,
I don't want to learn.
So I leave it out but,
Where will that leave me?

Being here the last time, I put all my mind to rest.
Being near the last time, I put all my trust in it.

When I stop and think
It comes clear to see.
The thought leads to what I hate.
It can't lead me.

Strange beings are,
All around me now.
I am one of them.
I'm just like them.

Being here the last time, I put all my mind to rest.
Being near the last time, I put all my trust in it.

Strange beings are all around me now. They're all around me now.
Track Name: OrangeDime
If I had a dime for every soul that I've saved,
I wouldn't have any money.
I don't like that president anyway.

If I had to say one way or the next,
I'd make no decision.
We know I'd just guess.

It's hard enough with decay and disease,
Then add the people,
Who destroy everything.

If I could make curses this would be true,
If you never hear this line,
The curse is on you.

I don't know as much as I pretend to know now.
If I did I wouldn't be here,
Not on the ground.

If I could punish the wicked the way I see fit,
I'd have my own justice coming,
How wrong I had been.

If I could lift everything above where we are
It wouldn't be right
Some things have to be hard

It has to be said. It's not up to me
Everyone here
Should truly be free

To be realistic is not to despair,
Just to know that someday,
There'll be no sorrows or care

If I could do it again it would all be the same
I'd just relive it
Without any change.

If you came for a moment and something feels off
I'd try to fix it
But you've already gone.

You know it's alright to make a mistake.
You only need be perfect
At changing your ways.
