Track Name: Straight and Narrow
I do not know just what I should know.. just don’t know
Do go just where I should go.. just don’t know
Do not walk the straight and narrow.. just don’t know

What you do.. well good for you
What you do.. well good for you
What you do, what you do..
Well good for you

Holding fast to stop start
Trying hard not to fall apart
Focusing all the time
Not to go insane

All do, what we..

Red stop, green start, how it goes
Green start, white stop, bloody nose

All do, what we, do..
We’ll all do, what we, do..

And what, you, do..
I’m sure it’s good for you
And what, you, do..
I’m sure it’s good for you
For me it just won’t go
Track Name: All Distractions
Your insecurities
Wear them on your shirt
Celebrate your disease
Show me where it hurts

All those pretty problems are piling up
Like some modern art or monument
As you subcome really want to erupt
Instead take it out on the ones you love

All distractions
All distractions
All distractions

Don’t look now, there’s an undertow
(They all know that you will see it through)

All distractions
All distractions
All distractions

They all know that you will see it through
Mom and dad are really proud of you
They all know that you will see it through
Mom and dad are really proud of you

Wind it up and watch you go
Wind it up and watch you go
Wind it up and watch you go
All so very proud of you

Proud of you
Proud of you

All so very proud of you
Everytime we look there’s nothing new

All those petty problems are piling up
Like some modern art or a monument
Track Name: Ugliest Parts
Sometimes the poetry is the ugliest part
Remaining remnants of my still beating heart
A feeling burgeoning from one torn apart
Payback seeming like a work of your art

I see myself flailing out in the dark
I see that handgun that you call your heart

Don’t want to start today
Don’t want to start tomorrow
Trying to giving up things
That cause me sorrow

Don’t want to start
Track Name: Dying Art
The dying art of getting out
Just sit around and talk about
Oh what we’ll do when that day comes
From the looks of us we’re far from

Moving out or moving on
Truth is it’s gone on too long
Who is right and who is wrong
It’s time to write this song

In time the kids won’t sing along
Pointing out what they’re running from
Raise the fist or drop the bomb
It’s hard to stop what’s long gone on

The dying art of fighting back
We’ve lost all sense of tact
Don’t know where we’re going
Minds stuck on where we’re at
Track Name: First Through The Towers
First through the towers
Breaking down the palisades
Never count the hours
That this uphill battle takes

First through the towers
Staying stubborn till my dying day
Always count the hours
When you’re working for a living wage

Third party, no party, trouble getting started
When the wall’s this high, gets you kinda dis-hearted

The same rules apply, but you’ve been denied
Truth my friend is a fucking lie

Truth my friend is a fucking lie..

Got to break, got to break, it’s going to break
Got to break, got to break down
Got to break, got to break, it’s going to break
It’s got to break down if we’re going to break out
Track Name: Life Games
You couldn’t break the chain or the social strain
So you went and you blew them all away
But the killing didn’t stop turmoil in your brain
They were innocent kids anyway

It’s a daily tragedy
A sad catastrophe
With innocent lives in it’s aim

Moving violently
Spreading silently
Desensitization comes in waves

These are the life games and we are the prey
Random mother fuckers to take it all away
These are the life games and we are the prey
These are the life games
Track Name: Pockets Sieve
You live life day to day
I’ll play mine by ear
The only trouble is
Finding my way out of here

You live life day to day
I’ll try to cope
The only trouble is
We’re running out of hope

It’s hard to leave when your pockets sieve
All’ve got big dreams / haven’t got the means
It’s hard to leave when your pockets sieve
It’s hard to lead / it’s dragging me

Screaming dreams / scared back to sleep
Whole life to live and you never leave
Your comfort and your deepest fears
Where do we go from here?!?
Track Name: Tourniquets
Getting sick to shake up shit
Keeping balance as not to fold
The symptoms growing permanent
Staved off but soon will show

As if not yet evident
Keep reaching brand new lows
All escapes are tourniquets
Keep guard still feel exposed


Keeping up is wearing thin
Thoughts of further giving in
Precedents set by your friends
You could call it settling

Outside world set to explode
Inside a bit closer though
You come to know what we all know
Further down it goes

Staved off but soon will show
