Track Name: Burning Away
Tell me something you have tried,
You're existence based on lies,
Burning through life just like a cigarette,
Don't look back, don't have no regrets,
Just remember who you were at the time.

Adolescent thoughts none had,
Everything is for a laugh,
Burning through life just like a cigarette,
Don't look back, don't have no regrets,
Just remember who you were at the time.

Don't you want to stop what's going on?
Unity and peace all in a song
You give your opinion, it's ignored,
Expecting to be told.

Living my life in suspense,
Never sitting on the fence,
Burning through life just like a cigarette,
Don't look back, don't have no regrets,
Just remember who you were at the time.

Don't you want to stop what's going on?
Unity and peace all in a song
You give your opinion, it's ignored,
Expecting to be told.
Track Name: I Am Gone
I wake up in the morning
I look outside and it's snowing
That cold breeze, it hit's my face
Another routine and another disgrace
And you're lying there smiling
Pretending we are the best thing
But the truth is we're bored, we just can't ignore
We can't go through this anymore

Now everybody says that this is it
We just sat and we watched as this fell to bits
Now I will feel redemption

And I, no I am gone
You were always right, I was always wrong
And I, no I am gone
And I aint ever coming back to you

These days are a difference
My memories are distant
this is the life, and this is for me
I've the ability to do as I please
Nobody to tell me
Nobody to shun me
You've put me down for far too long
You are gone now I can move on

Now everybody says that this is it
We just sat and we watched as this fell to bits
Now I will feel redemption

And I, no I am gone
You were always right, I was always wrong
And I, no I am gone
And I aint ever coming back
And I aint ever coming back to you

And I, no I am gone
You were always right, I was always wrong
And I, no I am gone
And I aint ever coming back
No I aint ever coming back
No I'm never coming back to you
Track Name: Last Chance
Regretting nothing but
What I've been told
The only thing that is for certain is that I am getting old
Questioning everything
Always willing to last
I think that this chance might be the last

Your story is more fucked up than mine
I'd listen, but I just don't have the time

Knowledge is everything
What have you learned?
All these wasted moments you had
You were quite content
Questioning everything
Always willing to last
I think that this chance might be the last

Your story is more fucked up than mine
I'd listen, but I just don't have the time
Understanding what you have been through
There's nothing I can do

And now you have grown up, the truth is lost
Making bad decisions
in which paths have been crossed
Borderline insane

On you I'm giving up
Sometimes I think
One day you will keep your shit together when you drink
Now you have made your bed
I hate to say
Not getting one bit of sympathy

Your story is more fucked up than mine
I'd listen, but I just don't have the time
Understanding what you have been through
There's nothing I can do
Track Name: Gonna Find A Way
When you're walking down the road
There's a set of eyes on you
When you think you're alone
They will hunt you down
Their watching your actions
Their watching your moves
Then they find you slip and they come for you

Their gonna find a way
Their gonna find a way to you
Their gonna find a way
Their gonna find a way to you

And everybody thinks
That their gonna keep you safe
CCTV is protection
It sees what it see,
It lives to be true
But in the wrong hands they will come for you

Their gonna find a way
Their gonna find a way to you
Their gonna find a way
Their gonna find a way to you

The neck will turn to left
The neck will turn to right
When it sees you,
You are in sight
The focus is zoomed
The targets in sight
Hunting begins and into the night

Their gonna find a way
Their gonna find a way to you
Their gonna find a way
Their gonna find a way to you

Their eyes
Are watching
Big brothers watching you
My eyes
Are open
Big brothers watching you

Their gonna find a way
Their gonna find a way
Their gonna find a way
Their gonna find a way to you
Track Name: Jaw Knee Music (NOFX Cover)
Johnny has a problem
Johnny is out of control
He had a TV party
With the kids of the black hole
Stealing people's mail
And lynching the landlord
Things to do when angry, young and bored

Johnny was only a lad
Johnny hates the scene
First he hit an old man
Then he hit and run Pauline
The record player spinning the best times
I never had
So why do my old records make me sad?

Cause they're so bad
And no one seems to understand
The glory of guitar
When out of tune
The off timing
The singers who can't sing
The beauty of flaw

He's a teenage vegetable
Listens to last resort
He's got PCP in his veins
He lives inside a quart
Johnny is a punk rocker
Johnny is he queer?
Johnny needed two bags
And a car to commandeer

Johnny wasn't liked much
But he had a lot of friends
Waits on stage eating ludes
A brainless mind-washed pig
Johnny was a good man
Till the day that he got shot
He had a jacked up chevy
That could blow you off the spot

Johnny always needs
More than he takes
Forgets a couple chords
Forgets a couple breaks
Johnny says he's bound
By only six strings to this world
Johnny Quest hates sellout bands
And Johnny Punk snorts Ritalin
And Johnny is an angry amputee
