Track Name: We Play Rock, Not Techno
somebody save me cause im running out on sanity
It left me with a bill to pay but i never bail on destiny
All my cards are maxed out
and my friends are drunk and cashed out
every seconds worth an hour
well pull out change for engine power
things have gotten better so i cant complain about anything
except my house, my clothes, my car, my shoes, my girl or lack of bling
driving on our hearts and souls, passion driving everything
well lifes too short so fuck it all
ive got my crew and one more drink!!

(we are the ones)
Staying up late at night
(you cant stop)
The things spinning in our heads
(we wont die)
These nights will live forever, were rebuilding tomorrow by taking back today

and so i try to give em' something to take off the edge
Perhaps a catchy chourus or a slightly heavy bridge
but everyone a critic and ill tell em' where to stick it
i havent listened to a word you see, guess what
you all mean shit to me!

things have gotten funny and you know the world is changing too
in over 20 years you think that id be learning something new
but all i know is what i feel and thats what really keeps me real
im turning up the stereo, im tuning out and letting go!

(we are the ones)
Staying up late at night
(you cant stop)
The things spinning in our heads
(we wont die)
These nights will live forever, were rebuilding tomorrow by taking back today.......

well burn out shadows in the streets tonight
all we have to guide us is those street lights
if the sun comes up before we get home
least we found exactly what were looking for

we will live forever

(we are the ones)
Staying up late at night
(you cant stop)
The things spinning in our heads
(we wont die)
These nights will live forever, were rebuilding tomorrow by taking back today
Track Name: It's Not That Important
im forming thoughts but the words wont come out
ive built a lie and sent the truth a fancy post card embedded in a trimmed and proper sentence is the ink that ive defended like the castle on the coast line unabridged and open for discussion ill take your criticism place them in the oven and burn them like a napster album from the 90's thanks to nofx ill take the shoes and keep on running

we found a place that we can call our own
(we'll call our own)
we found a place that we can call our own
no need for a disguise or indiscretion in our home

turn back the hour glass (grain by grain)
relive the memories (its still the same)
we lived the bad times and reinvented black lines our boundaries from the outside i could write a letter to myself on how i feel about the faces all around me but in the future i wouldn't want to read some bitching post pubescent teen's all knowing rants about society
Track Name: Karma's Gonna Get Us
theres light in my eyes but i can barely see
im scared to death of whats in front of me
you blamed everyone for this mess that your in
its time your you to end this

throw it from your hands before you look away
watch what your bomb has to fucking say
throw it from your hands before you look away
watch what your bomb has to fucking say.....

weve been reciting poetry in discords
to contradict the love in the lines that we read
cause we were born for something better than a cliche
i swear to god that ill clean this mess that you made

take me away from this situation
your words are like knives in my spine
i am the mountian you pray to stand on
and youre just an ant in my eyes

Look into the mirror
try to find yourself
dig deep for power
youre just a fucking coward

weve been reciting poetry in discords
to contradict the love in the lines that we read
cause we were born for something better than a cliche
i swear to god that ill clean this mess that you made

weve been reciting all of the lines that we read
cause we were born for something better than this mess that you made
weve been reciting all of the lines that we read
cause we were born for something better than this mess that you made
Track Name: Xan-Ex
inebriated intoxicated on whatever you can find
i had a harder time bagging up a bottle of wine
im embarrassed to say i though highly of you when ive seen you take off your clothes for a pbr

pack your bags youre leaving today
i hope you found some pain on your way
so i can know that you'll die alone and depraved
ive washed my hands of this dirt and decay
you're just a worm buried deep in my brain
you may be close but i know that you'll fade
so feel alive while you can
cause this time youre dead to me

hey mallort i found your fucking whore shes throwing up on the bathroom stall with one hand unbuttoning her pants and her face in 3 lines of xanax
