Track Name: SHHHhhhh
Listen to all the profiteers of doom as they realize their truths are no longer held sacred
Watch them as they scream and wave their hands
They reach up at sky saying God why can't we get back to?

Well we've got quite an aversion
To your state of mind
Well here's a solution
If you'd like to try

Back to when do you mean your good old days
When it was legal to rape so long as your wife was the victim
And those people had separate entrances
You could bask in your hatred like it was sunshine

Well we've got quite an aversion
To your state of mind
Well here's a solution
If you'd like to try

Traded in all your peace and love ethics
Used to blow your mind getting loaded on Haight St.
Until you made some money and came down
You moved to a small town and then you voted for Regan

Well we've got quite an aversion
To your state of mind
Well here's a solution
If you'd like to try
You've lived such a long time
You're looking tired
It's alright close your eyes
It's ok if you die

Don't it seem just a bit petty and cheep
A little flat out mean to hang on to your laurels
When you know you could come with all of us
please get to the bus before it runs you right over

Well we've got quite an aversion
To your state of mind
Well here's a solution
If you'd like to try
You've lived such a long time
You're looking tired
It's alright close your eyes
It's ok if you die
Track Name: Jesus
Sirens' song sings on and on
Look out boy you're awful close to the rocks
Uh ha
I was standing on the shore
Kicking and screaming trying to worn
You

Lightly veiled covered eyes
Bright young smile but those teeth are sharp as knives
Uh ha
She draws you in with a kiss but
Watch out boy don't you get too close to her lips because
The smell of danger is
Such a turn on

Met this girl who I met through a guy
Said her name was Jesus Christ
Oh Jesus Christ
Cracked a smile as she showed me her room
She kept that gun so well hidden
But when I turned my head she shot me dead
Once in the heart
Once in my head
Yeah that's what Jesus did

Oh here we go again
How come crazy's always so interesting
She likes to drink she hits the gas
It's so fun at first but fun at first never lasts
Because
The smell of danger is
Such a turn on
Track Name: Motivation
People drink and do drugs
Some look up above
Some look in their arms and their legs
But they're searching in vein
You don't need a church or a spoon
You know it lives inside of you

It's called love

Back when we were young
Back when the world was still fun
Before we learned the word hate
Before we were sent off to school
And taught to forget what we all really need
Yeah you know that it lives inside you

It's called love
Track Name: Darwin
I am runnin' round again
I know that I should sit still oowww look at the fire
I keep putting sticks in it
To pull them out and then
Poke em' into my skin

I am walking proof
That evolution doesn't
Always work out
I am really weak
I live off of the rich
And those stronger then me

With an under developed
Sense of self
Preservation And life skills

Well I am truly shocked
That I have any friends left
With the way they look at me
Like I've got something on my face
I swear that I'm okay man
Please don't go away

I am walking proof
That evolution doesn't
Always work out
I am really weak
I live off of the rich
And those stronger then me

With an under developed
Sense of self
Preservation And life skills

I am walking proof
That evolution doesn't
Always work out
I am really weak
I live off of the rich
And those stronger then me

With an under developed
Sense of self
Preservation And life skills
I'm Goddamn amazed
I'm walking around still
Track Name: Work
Leaves blowing wind stays the same
Sign on the door says it's a new day
Polly go and grab your gun
There's things that need doing there's things to be done

Sun's beating down there is no shade
Lips blistering as my skin's turning red
I think that it's time we got out of town
For the things that we've done they'll be running us down

You've got blood on the ground
You've got blood on the ground
You've got blood on the ground
But you're not around

Funny how passion is so close to rage
Get the two mixed up almost everyday
I love you so much that's why I care what you say
Well in the heat of the moment it felt ok

You've got blood on the ground
You've got blood on the ground
You've got blood on the ground
But you're not around
Track Name: Gift
Highway's esoteric especially the one's inside our heads
Look at the garbage along the roadside
We all sit in traffic rushing home so we can get back
And manifest our very owe forms of gridlock
everyday

Oh but there's a twinkle in my heart
Oh is that a smile coming on
When I learned your name I went and I bought you a star
I think it's right up there where's the chart

One man's trash is another's treasure and other such clichés
We walk through them like we're wading in high water
Well you know they were prepared they got all of their sandbags
Those goddamn sons of bitches sandbagged us
once again

Oh but there's a twinkle in my heart
Oh is that a smile coming on
When I learned your name I went and I bought you a star
I think it's right up there where's the chart

Hats off to em going green we're all really excited
About the way they've reused all of their neighbor's ]
Waste and other things we've flat out disregarded
Oh at least there's still someone recycling
Hip hip hooray

Oh but there's a twinkle in my heart
Oh is that a smile coming on
When I learned your name I went and I bought you a star
I think it's right up there where's the chart
Track Name: Capitalism
It smells like the time that you fell
And split my head open
Trying to taste the sunshine.
No one's ever seen you get this high
This can never end
Don't be a downer.

Oh but then she sits down
Her invisible hand
Opens up her mouth and then
She smashes sound

I see the color in your teeth
The fear that you breathe
And I know what it's for.
Your mouth it moves when you're not speaking
Your eyes are hollow shells
You've been abandon by your family

Oh but then she sits down
Her invisible hand
Opens up her mouth and then
She smashes sound

Sound, she smashes sound, she smashes sound, she smashes sound.

Forget all of your beliefs
The way that it seems
It's no longer important.
The truth it only finds wrong or right
There's just no room to move
No matter how bad you may wanna

Oh but then she sits down
Her invisible hand
Opens up her mouth and then
She smashes sound

Sound, she smashes sound, she smashes sound, she smashes sound.
