Pirate Smile 03:18
PIRATE SMILE…a ship of sinking fools unaware of rising tides this population screwed standing in the bread or party lines in a word all they do is lie and they only work to waste all of our time in a way maybe I was blind now I’m old enough to open up my eyes you repeat the past mistakes I refuse to play in this charade a whole generation FUCKED cleaning up the messes that you’ve made in a word all you do is lie and you only work to waste all of my time ain’t no way no more I’ll be blind now I’m old enough to open up my eyes…what do you believe?

Lines 04:15
LINES…open up your eyes and wonder how far in they really go have you ever followed lines all the way down inside? every inch is understanding everyone you’ve ever known have you ever followed lines all the way down inside? once you’ve opened up those flood gates nothing closes them again but you chose to follow and you chose to follow me back down if you’ve got a reason I can’t see it
3.
Whatever 03:13
WHATEVER…whatever gets you off or gets you high whatever is going around that lets you sleep at night if you wanted to be alright then I wanted to make sure whatever digs you up and lets you go whatever is in the ground I leave it to help you grow if you wanted to play all night then I’ll watch you to make sure cantankerous the billy goat advantageous the sour note peel back your mask and throw it away break off the scab and toss me away whatever gets you down just gets me right whatever is in the air me and you don’t have to fight if you wanted to save my life then watch me to make sure I’m still breathing am I still breathing?

IT AIN’T RIGHT…it ain’t right to call it a waste of time is your name yours to keep? I can’t find words to speak is your name yours to leave? if it ain’t mine I call it a waste of time I let dogs lie sleeping away their lives while I stay up nights is your name yours to keep? I can’t find words to speak can you ever un see all the things you
5.
Threes 03:22
THREES…air trees water father week never ends up right don’t let that dull your knife they’re raising up their kin for us to welcome in my discarded family meek never conquers might though me I feel your plight keep giving of your sins for me to eat again S.O.S. sold on sex we own the night nonsense nosensemakessense weak minds won’t see the light so let them feel your knife I’m raising up your dead to let them live again

Cinderella 03:32

Generals 02:22
GENERALS…pour tea for the powers that be turn and pay no mind dirty knees dirty feet better yours than mine thy underestimate what it is to lead then they overcompensate for their inadequacy break bread with the head of state try and please your case when that head ends up on a stake it pains me in the least they underestimate what it is to lead then they overcompensate for their inadequacy it was always in your blood now it’s only just begun you were royalty that graduated to war no just don’t forget what you started fighting for are you going to die a hero or stick around long enough to be swayed? don’t become what you hate

Big Enough 02:20
BIG ENOUGH…this town ain’t big enough for me no one is going to stop me anyway stay in your lane you’re all too late this town ain’t big enough for me no one is going to stop me anyway all the burning down you’re feeling clean you’ll never see me on your way wearing your names wearing your chains you’re all to blame you’re all to blame when the cops called your names we could not believe and when you both went down in flames how did we never see? this town ain’t big enough for me no one is going to hold me anyway
9.
Alone 04:16
ALONE…leave me alone I want to be by myself ahead of no one when it’s all in my head is it all in my head? I’m headed over home across that hill if I leave you a note it says I don’t want to be here you don’t want to be near
10.
Lucky 04:57
LUCKY…when it comes right down to it you’ve got to be the one that has to choose if this will break your heart again and if you’ll be the one that has to lose you feel abysmal you can’t wake to face the day and if it comes right down to it you’ve got to be that walks away you had a feeling that one could make you whole you had a feeling when you failed at feeling bad and the more you try the more you lose when they break your heart again and the more you give the more they use you thought that this one might be your lucky break but when it comes right down to it how many more of these do you think you’ll take? you had a feeling this one could make you whole you had a feeling…
