Track Name: 3 Sheets
You don’t even know
What we’re gonna do today
So you finally make that call
Then you quickly drift away
But the bottom of the bottle
Is much further then you think
When one more excuse
Becomes one more chance to drink

Break through the pressure (on and on and)
Does it bring pleasure (far beyond)
One for good measure (on and on and)

The story is yours to change or forget
You’ll be the one left feeling regret
All we can hope is you’ll understand
The end of the road is close at hand

Break through the pressure (on and on and)
Does it bring pleasure (proven wrong)
One for good measure (on and on and)
Track Name: The Way
Mistakes get made at the highest level
And if you believe, it doesn’t count as a lie
There’s never been a reason to suffer
And now he says “son, it’s time to die”

Hate, this change of pace
A pathetic excuse to exercise authority

Once again, we’ve found a new enemy
The distribution’s been skewed
A confedarate flag waves in front of me
And if they knew?

Hate, this change of pace
A pathetic excuse to exercise authority

Don’t wait, for everything to fall in place
Recognize the greatest limitation of your liberty

Once in a while you get shown a bit of decency
How nice of ‘em for keepin’ us all in mind.

This is the way, the way that you want to
This is the way, the way that you need to
This is the way, the way that you want to
This is the way, the way that you will do
Track Name: Intermittent Explosive Disorder
You can’t just let the city break your spirit
Like a nightmare's come that you can’t wake up from
You just grin and bear it

If you sober up long enough
Take your own advice and get the fuck outta this place

Your train of thought, it keeps getting thrown off
A bittersweet pill
You can feel the heat as it rises off the concrete
But you can’t shake this chill

Everyday feels the same, you ask yourself again
“What the hell am I still doing here?”

And even if autopilot is resisted
I swear these screws get looser by the day
I’m gonna take the only chance I have to live my life
This place will never take my soul

You can’t just let the city break your spirit
Like a nightmare's come that you can’t wake up from
You just grin and bear it

Sober up long enough,
Take your own advice and get the fuck outta this place

Everyday feels the same and ya ask yourself again
“What the hell am I still doing here?”
“What the hell am I still doing here?”
“What the hell am I still doing here?”
Track Name: Douchez
Overcome by silence
Surrounded by death
Gave a boy his last rights
Then swallowed his last breath

What do you do
When the devil gives the orders
It’s all about wealth
No longer about the borders
How can you tell him, it was all a sham
He gave his youth to Uncle Sam

Break through the chains
And down come walls
Without our hands
The empire falls

And still the battle rages on (It’s time to fight, fall in line)
I guess you knew it all along (You pull the trigger, you’re doin’ fine)
Nothing left to say (As long as you’ve lost me)
You’ll be the one left fully empty

And still the battle rages on (It’s time to fight, fall in line)
I guess you knew it all along (You pull the trigger, you’re doin’ fine)
Nothing left to say (As long as you’ve lost me)
You’ll be the one left fully empty
You’ll be the one left fully empty
You’ll be the one left fully empty
Track Name: Black & Blue (Collars)
Black and blue
Black and blue
Black and blue

Frustrated with the state of stagnation
I decide which rules I abide (alright)
A killer outlook not always predictable
Leave it to death to defy

Working unpaid overtime so they can all get richer
That's not a heart beat, it's a fucking stock ticker
Self-serving Boomers, they tell us what to do
Blame the outsourced worker, but they just want the same as you

Children at play under glass ceilings
Children at play
Children at play under glass ceilings
The cost of living's worth more then your life

A young man rings a bell
Commence feats of strength then a breach of trust
Watch as ideals for the future go up in smoke
Need fire, not dust

Higher education was just another caper
You gave us all jobs pushing buttons and paper
How are the TV kids so rich and pretty
When I'm a background player in this cold dark city

Children at play under glass ceilings
Children at play
Children at play under glass ceilings
The cost of living's worth more then your life

A slight misstep from the onset
A paradigm shift the cause for the conflict
Way past the point of consequence
A quenchless thirst for self-indulgence

Blood stains remain no matter how much you clean
Everybody’s got the blues, but no ones got the green
Forty years of this feels like the barrel of a gun
Are you really giving up when there's nothing to be won

Black and blue
Black and blue
Black and blue

Black and blue (Children under glass ceilings)
Black and blue (We're completely unfeeling)
Black and blue (Children under glass ceilings)
The cost of living's worth more than your life
