Track Name: Meet You Underground
I can't remember when life begun
I'll never know what I'll become

I'll meet you underground.

I was a kid and then I grew up
I met a woman and she gave me love

I'll meet you underground.

Aint no way I'm not afraid

If you're old and tired and you've had enough
You can go to sleep and you'll never wake up.
Track Name: Killing An Arab
Standing on a beach with a gun in my hand
Staring at the sea staring at the sand
Staring down the barrel at the arab on the ground
I see his open mouth but I hear no sound

I'm alive
I'm dead
I'm a stranger killing an arab

I can turn and walk away or a I can fire the gun
Staring at the sky staring at the sun
Whichever I choose it amounts to the same
Absolutely nothing

I feel the pistol jump smooth in my hand
Staring at the sky staring at the sand
Staring at myself reflected in the eyes of the dead man on the beach
Track Name: At War
I'll let you see who I am
I doubt that you'd understand
I'm wide open

I'll look you dead in the eye
I have got nothing to hide
What's your problem

I'm not the one who's at war
Whatever that you're fighting for, it's wrong

Just get a hold of yourself
You won't get anything else
It's just hopeless

I can't believe what you said
What's going on in your head
I don't get it
Track Name: Better Off
I wish I could go back
I'd live the life I used to have
Now the best part's through
There's nothing left to look forward to
There's nothing left to look forward to

I'm not better off now
I'm just losing ground

The future can't be seen
I don't know what will happen to me
I cannot give up hope
or I'll hang myself at the end of my rope
Don't hang yourself at the end of your rope

Just one life is all I'm going to get
I have to learn to make the best of it
Let's make the best of it.
Track Name: Virgin High
We just want to get high
We’d be better off loaded
Fuck the bullshit and fly
You got to get the show rolling

Save yourself from the old and tired scene
Hurting for a way

I feel like I’m coming
I just gave it try
I think I’m to something
This is my virgin high

We discovered a sound
We discovered a potion
Nothing’s bringing me down
My habit’s set into motion

Now I’m into something new
and no matter what I do
I cannot forget my first time

If I pass this on to you
It will change your point of view
It will help you to expand your mind
Track Name: What We're Living For
We have everything we need
You can't have what you can't see
All we have is all we know
All we know we have been shown

Hold on Hold on
This is it
There's nothing more

Hold on Hold on
We are what we're living for

No one's seen the other side
It's just us until we die
I believe the heart goes on
It won't matter 'til I'm gone

Your spirit is flesh and bone
We weren't meant to live alone
What you see is what you get
Live your life
You're not dead yet

Can god hear you when you pray
We're a million miles away
Meet the world and do your part
Find the god within your heart
Track Name: Nerve
I'd rather quit than lose
I'd rather wait than chose
I'd rather run than fight
I'd rather live than die

It's not a weakness
It's not a problem
You shouldn't be concerned
I'm not living or suicidal
I haven't got the nerve

I'd rather suck than breathe
I'd rather watch than see
I'd rather crash than turn
I'd rather jump than burn

I'm just surviving life and I've forgotten why
If I was hypnotized then maybe I'd remember
Help me to remember

I'd rather be asleep
and I don't want to eat
Each time that I wake up
I've got to spill my guts
Track Name: Come Together
It takes two to tango
We have so much more
Everyone looks stupid standing around the dance floor

Come on let's get off
Let's get everyone involved
No one gives a shit do what you want

Hey y'all come together

You can't fight the feeling
There's too much chemistry
Let's cut all the tension and join hands in anarchy

Let it go man
Track Name: Stop Dragging Your Feet
I know you could use my help
You can't tell it for yourself
You've lost your way
Yeah, you've lost your way

You can't finish what you've done
You can't stop what you've begun
What can we say
Yeah, what can we say

You're below me drowning slowly

Stop dragging your feet
Stop dragging me down

You'd be better off like me
You can be what you want to be
It's all the same
Yeah, it's all the same

I think you know your time is out
You fucked around and there is no doubt
You've lost your way
Yeah, you've lost your way

That's enough
That's enough to kill somebody
That's enough so say you’re sorry.
