3 Sheets 03:12
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)

The Way 03:32
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

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?”

Douchez 02:03
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

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
