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

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

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

Dying Art 00:57
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

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

Life Games 00:35
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
7.
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?!?

Tourniquets 01:33
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
