Every. Single. Stinkin thing you say. Either Cuts. Maims. Makes me feel OK. 2,3,4!

Over and over. Thoughts that rake your head. Over and over. Thoughts that make you dead.

Repeat 1st verse

Automatic Liar with a bic in his hand. Pushing buttons ,eating money while pretending it's Dad. Automatic Liar Caught on the phone. Dial one nine hundred and yank your own.

Pre Chorus:
You lie. You believe yourself. You stink like nobody else. Your a pittiful excuse for a human life.

Chorus:

Track Name: Ultimate Pop Song
And when you're drowning in your head. Reality tears you down. You don't know a single thing she said.In and out of time.You never ever think about it and you're alone.

chorus:
2X Tear out your picture pages. Destroy everything and take a dive into the ultimate pop song. YEAH!

Track Name: Powder Dove
Never drown, never dream, never sleep at night. Never feel alright.
Kinda cold on a roll in a beam of light. You're really out of sight.

Chorus:
You never ever seem to run. Take a distant glance. Glance at the Sun. You never ever seem to care. Take a fleeting pass at what you share. Yeah!

Passing time on a rhyme on a Powder Dove. Never fall in love.
Powder Dove , Powder Dove, Powder Dove all day. Your gonna feel Ok.

Chorus:
Track Name: Coming Down High
Breathing soot in an airtight room. Rationed gasp of toxic gloom. A parking space will be mine soon as sparks explode inside this tune, on fire..On fire!

Cauterized on a deaf balloon. Blow it up and taste the boom. Therapy will make you croon about the sparks exploding in this tune.. on fire. When your Coming Down High.

Lyricise on a third verse soon. My thoughts are random on the Endor Moon. A parking space will be mine soon as spark explode in this tune...on fire!
When you're coming down high. Coming Down High. Coming Down High.Coming Down High.

Clandestine mood upsets your intestine. Hot blanket on wax, carte' blanche'

Pre- Chorus
Chorus 2X
Track Name: Dialed-In
Tight Pants With Pockets full of money. Gap toothed stripper with a nose kind of runny.Dial me in to the Rail in Vail. 1st class people got the vains that fail

Chorus: Dailed in you're so dialed...In. Dialed in you're so dialed. Awww!

Hanging out with Han Solo's BUDDY! Expert's got the satchel, Jabba's got the tummy. Cooking eggs with nails full of dirt. The Gimp starts to babble just like Capt. Kirk.

Chorus

Bridge:2X You got allot. You got allot of guts. 2X you got allot. Alot of rotten guts!

Chorus

2x Dialed in you're so dialed. Dialed in you're so dialed in!
Track Name: Perfect State of Grace
Did you feel the sheets of incandescent roar. Spinning past your spine, until it hits your core. Did you feel the pain? did it sting your brain now.

Chorus: Sitting upstairs with your feet on the ground. You look better now with your face making sounds. Sitting here in a blank array. I guess it's just a Perfect State of Grace now.

Spinning past the Mars collected in your soul. Fishing to and from an unprotected toll. Did you hear the ring? Did you hear the phone now?

Chorus:

Perfect State of Grace Now!

Chorus:

Perfect State of Grace Now!
Track Name: Steal Your Keys and Crash your Car
You got to move. You're gonna slide. You got to be!... so Pacified. And when I raid you bag at will. I'll snag the keys and get my fill.

Chorus:
I'm gonna steal your keys and crash your car

2000lbs of chrome and steel. Destroy your yard!...Just under my wheel.
And when I smash your mailbox still. I see your face encounter the grill

Chorus: 2X

I'm Gonna steal your Keys... and Crash.....I'M GONNA CRASH YOUR CAR!

I'M GONNA CRASH YOUR CAR!
Track Name: Gratitude
Thank you for being there. Thank you for early care. Thank you for going to war. Thank you for every chore.

Thank you for always being there. Thank you for every earthly care. I'm glad... we made amends.. 3X .I know I'll see you again!

They all cry when they close the lid. Talked about everything you did. Nothing left, but Love in spades. Complete honor in a naval parade.

Now I notice little miracles. Every tree and every animal. I'm glad we made amends. 3X I know I'll see you again!

It hurt so bad when you had to go away.
Track Name: Tracers won't leave me Alone
Pardoned by faith in the middle of the night. Notorious dreams but the visions are out of sight. Paltry qualms and they knew it all along.
When are you Coming Home?

Crying at dawn while your fever was running high. Graduate life but they said that you up and died. Paltry qualms and they knew it all along.
2X When are you coming Home. 2X The Tracers won't leave me Alone.
Track Name: Cheap Poltergeists
Take everything you've ever wanted. Leave all the crap that you started. Hold life in the palm of you hand. Keep every grain of the hour glass sand.

Chorus:
Every moment of your life is as perfect as can be. Plus and minus come together in total reality. Got a real live blow torch.

Cold, got a haunting vision. I sold all my fear for a mission. Cheap Poltergeists are always on sale. Burn every bill you get in the mail.

Chorus:

Chorus:

Got a real live blow torch. 3X Blow torch
Track Name: 4 on the Floor
Verse;
Keep it up, I know you''ll never leave me. Perma- grin is never deceiving. Open up and play it 4 on the Floor.

Over shadow all of your devices. A 6/8 waltz with 3/4 vices. Rise to attention and take what's yours.

Pre Chorus:
I'm gonna live it up. I'm gonna break the frown. And when you start to sing. Chains become un bound.

Chorus:
The light of your life she lives in a movie. Grab her had in a Passionate furry. Gonna breakthrough! for the Rest of my life.

I'm gonna Breakthrough! For the Rest of my life.

Repeat Verse and Pre Chorus

2X Chorus

3X Life! I'm gonna Breakthrough for the rest of my life.
Track Name: Everybody's Dead and No one's Talking
Everybody's dead and no one's talking. A pedal to the floor a Flesh Vehicle Rocking. Gotta speak now gonna break my silence. I'm not afraid of you or your random violence.

Chorus:
2X Everybody's dead and no one's talking. 2X Everybody's dead.

Have you heard about the Resurrection? Infinity delayed and a final Redemption.

Chorus:

3X Dead.
Track Name: Hang Up and Drive
Burning your bridges like there is no tomorrow. Suck and we'll borrow and we'll send you home. Hanging all prisoners and shooting all hostages. Looting your country till you feel let down. Why don't you sit right down.

Voices of legend in the stories of heartache. Repeating the question til you feel let down. Why don't you sit right down. Hang Up and Drive you know your barley alive. Deceptions and Jive and we'll send you home. 3X Why don't you sit right down.

2X Hang Up and Drive. Why dont'cha Hang up and drive. Hang up and drive. Yeah! Hang up and drive!
Track Name: Fraud
Dosing out on pure affliction. Your brain stops writing home. Self absorbed on loose leaf fiction , spiral flushing cone. Cross the examination. Pencil in your drone. Phasers set to stun, Eased on convolution. Channells eyes are numbed.

Chorus:
You got a love but you know it only breeds a Fraud. Music notes I love have been morphed into a living Fraud. It's a Fraud.

Moving words with plastic diction. They've cauterized your loan. Tying Knots in mental constriction, Deleting all you've known. Pass the examination. pencil in your drone. This lyric has a rhyme. We scream it all the time. The music is our own.

Chorus:
3X It's a Fraud

Bridge:
To bad our race has gone down hill. Ignoramus people got no will. Take a Dart and you are set to die. Can't you tell by the horrible look in my eye?
Track Name: Set Free
Melting chords into weeping glass. Book of Mathew like a pottery class. Capsize the boat of humanity past.
Ever after. Creation unmade. Bring down the madness brigade. Approach forever as your pulse starts to fade.

Chorus:
2X Ooh, Oh,Oh,Oh,Oh,Oh,Oh. Ooh,Oh,Oh,Oh,Oh,Oh,Oh. Now I know Your Set Free

Breakdown:
Chorus:
3X

2X And now I Know Your Set Free.

3X Set Free.
.
Track Name: Knife to a Gunfight
Hold on baby, wait a minute now. I forgot my knife but you brought your skillet pow.
Bleeding from the face, it's so unsettling. It all started with a shotgun wedding.

Casualties are mounting like a Pickets charge there. Over run in ruin like an uncivil union.

Pre Chorus:
Trying so hard, with all our might. Looks like we brought a knife to gunfight.

Chorus:
Knife to a gunfight. Branded by stars. Knife to a gunfight. Smith and Wesson wins it's so out of sight. uh oh!

Get on Living or get on dying. You're selling me guilt but I ain't buying.

Pre chorus:

Chorus: 2X

2X Smith and wesson wins it's so out of sight. uh oh!
Track Name: Lordsin Theme
Gonna ride at the speed of sound. Grinding gears till the blood hits the ground. Gotta leave the house right now. Burning rubber till the sun going down.

Chorus:
2 X We're Going Lordsin

Take a trek down Asshole Hill. Bust a tire, never take a spill.
Percy Priest is the place to be. Ride the Damn in to History.

Chorus:

2 X We're going Lordsin

Bridge:
Make it out alive. Were going back to the hive.
We're gonna break it down, We're going in to town.

(Repeat first verse)

Chorus

4 X We're going Lordsin

We're Going Lordsin.
