Track Name: SBC
I don't want your money, you can keep your car
Try to leave before me and you won't get that far
Listen up. I'll fill you in on the scam
You're not the victim here, you're a sacrificial lamb

Get on the floor
What you crying for?
The cops will be here soon to serve and protect all the people in town
That's why I came alone
I didn't need my cover blown
I hope they don't hit bone and quick and painless, a bullet finds home

Nobody moves, on your knees face against the wall
Nobody moves, hands behind your back
You got no one to call
If I do this right, its over tonight
I hear the sirens and I see the lights
The end will be here soon, if nobody moves

My plan is perfect. I've got bad intent
You'll all be fine. Just keep your nose on the cement
Lets make a deal... You try not to scream
And when they open fire, I won't haunt your dreams

Shhhh, I think they just pulled up
When they tell me to come out I'll have to tell them that they're fucked
I need to make them scared,
Make em gale they came prepared
My guns a fake but when its in your face they'll light me up
Track Name: Community Service
Found herself standing there
The rain had soaked her hair, makeup running off her nose
She had her eyes closed
She was so miserable
Was she capable of this?
A thousand hours of community service
An hour bus ride to the wrong side of town
Trying to wrap her head around
Where she found herself now
Here on the front lines
Its just a soup line
Never look them in the eye, but every fucker tries
Go find a home
Can't break my heart of stone
So sick and tired of filling up buckets and cups
Thats when she looked up
And saw her standing there
The rain had soaked her hair
She had her eyes closed
Looked like a black rose
She was so miserable
So fucking miserable
But was she capable of this?
Track Name: Worry
What will we do when theres no running?
Where will we be when we can't avoid the fall?
Designed receivers for ourselves, but never heard the call
It was easy to ignore it
Just turned the other way
Saw our future but denied it and kept living for today

I've got a family to protect
What if it all just goes away?
Life could change for good tomorrow and leave misery to stay
Which disease is gonna get us?
How will we all stay strong?
We keep warring over ghosts who haven't helped us in so long

What will we do when the tap stops running?
Where will we be when the very last light burns out?
I don't know about you but this is what keeps me up at night
I'll write a song and let it out

Is this a world without morals?
Will the cosmos snuff us out?
Have we poisoned all around us?
Is this world breaking down?
Are the answers even out there?
Or am I standing here in the dark, trying to make more pointless noise?
Start a fire without a spark?

What will we do when the tap stops running?
Where will we be when the very last light burns out?
I don't know about you but this is what keeps me up at night
I'll write a song and let it out

My worry protects me
My worry? It wrecks me

What will we do when the tap stops running?
Where will we be when the very last light burns out?
I don't know about you but this shit sucks.
It keeps me up at night
I'll write a song and let it out
Track Name: Washed Up Love
A certain sway in the way she walks
A certain style in the shit she talks
When she's making me laugh on a sunday morning drive
Looks past my clothes and tattooed skin
The ride of a lifetime on a wedding ring
She took an angry dead soul and made it feel alive

She drives me wild
With the way she smiles
And the way she reads my mind can calm the beast inside
She's my whole world
And I don't deserve
This washed up love she gives is of the purest kind

Now I've
Punched a wall a time or two
She's patched me up
Talked me through it
What she's put up with would make anybody run
She's a perfect lover
An honest friend
She's got my back and she doesn't resent
All the noise that I make or the time I spend alone
The shade of her eyes
The smell of her hair
Half of me is missing if she ain't there
Its a helluva feeling to know you've got the one

She drives me wild
With the way she smiles
And the way she reads my mind can calm the beast inside
She's my whole world
And I don't deserve
This washed up love she gives is of the purest kind
Track Name: Cult
Those wordless cries, that drawn out sigh
We've got the answers brother
Step inside

We're family here. We share your fears
And you'll be safe once your financials clear

Could this be what your looking for?
Dip your fingers at the door
Sit down and get it off your chest (write a cheque)
Its one for all and all for all
We're here to catch you if you fall
Its guaranteed if you invest

A tithe avoids impending doom

A small percent
would really help pay the rent
And it'll save you all that time on real repent
Try to ignore hypocrisy
Lets talk about economy and what it cost to save your soul
(write a cheque)
Vile sinners and all reprobates
Are only one collection plate
Away from being immortal

A tithe avoids impending doom

You must have friends
Bring em on in
We can put a price on any salvation
Track Name: 6ix
Tried to hide her but its so hard to turn frozen ground
Eventually she was found and swept away
We used to talk about finally turning our lives around
Forgot the cold and the snow every time we played
Kick the guitar case open, pour out our souls for passers by
We're gonna kill tonight, make enough to sleep inside

We had a dream
A guitar and ghost have got me heading to the coast
And she's with me on every string
We had a dream

Used to shiver her way through every street side song
I ruined so many gloves just so I could play
She'd sung about moving somewhere for so long
She'd sung about warmth and endless days
Maybe she wasn't looking but something found her in the dark
She couldn't hide the marks.
Her voice was torn apart
Couldn't thaw a frozen heart

We had a dream
A guitar and ghost have got me heading to the coast
And she's with me on every string
We had a dream

Her song has been silent since the night she left
The cop said 'Another junkie down'
We used to joke about if our thumbs were big enough
I promised her that I'd find out
Track Name: Dad Gang
We barely get together. We were the best of friends
Now we don't see each other unless our wives have plans
I think I got a plan though, one we can call our own
We can retain glory and still remain at home (no dog house!)

I wanna rock a mohawk, but I'm going bald
I ain't goin backwards, I haven't even stalled
Call the boys and tell em, we are going on a quest
Sharpen up the toothbrush
Patchin up the vest
We're gonna walk through Safeway like we own the place
Maybe a Hello Kitty temp tattoo on my face
All the moms will fear us
All the dads will run
Doin driveways with a stroller and a water gun

Lets start a gang. Start a dad gang.

We ain't no adolescents, We ain't no snot nosed kids
(We're grown ups)
We ain't going down the road our parents did
(So boring)
I may not ride a Harley, the scooter will suffice
(Sensible mileage)
And when I buy my weed, I find the best price
(Sensible drug use)
I gotta show my groms that I don't give a fuck
I'm in a minvan, tryin to save a buck
I'm gonna go to punk shows once they're all in bed
And when they're old enough I'll show em how to bang their heads
I see the other dads. They're all so fucking lame
I'll teach my kid to punch your kid at the soccer game
We're gonna burn the world down, gonna leave our marks
We'll be the meanest when we're vining at the water park

Lets start a gang. Start a dad gang.
Track Name: Fisted
Hello Dead Eyes, come on in
So we meet again.
Lost a bet, I won regret
Runnin out of friends
Should be a crime, the way we dropped the ball
Your cross to share, my cross to bear
On bloodied knees we crawl

Don't think about the fall
Focus on the climb
In the eyes of god we're all here wasting time
There's no erasing this
One pass
One try
Its a one way trip
Look around
Take it in
You're the one stopping you
My mediocre days are through
Let go the hand that makes a fist

You've got to chase it, you can't let it chase you
We're falling down. We're getting up.
Its the dusting off we smile through
Embrace the chase, own your mistakes
Gratitude is currently escaping you
Stand face to face
Try not to break
I got news for you, thats not a mirror
You look like them
They look like you
Through this fog I see it so clear

Don't think about the fall
Focus on the climb
In the eyes of god we're all here wasting time
There's no erasing this
One pass
One try
Its a one way trip
Look around
Take it in
You're the one stopping you
My mediocre days are through
Let go the hand that makes a fist
Track Name: Death Of A Demon
Six hundred and fifty days
On tour non stop going hard in the paint
He's seen tattoos and a million boobs and he's
gonna rock em all before the evening is through
Its good living when the demon cums
Throwing horns and dropping tongues
A fire so hot it'll dry up the blood
With their ass in the air everybody looks good

Don't turn away from me
I gave you rock and roll all night
We party every day
Its the lifestyle that you buy
Don't turn away from me
After so many crazy nights
We party every day
You desert my army?!? WHY??


You cast him aside but that bastard died a hero
Of all of our times, the bad times were less than zero

How soon mother fuckers forget
What they were listening to the first time they got head
The posters above their beds
All the nights on stage, all the make up and sweat
Probably playing on the night you were made
In the back of a chevy while your momma got laid
Thinking of me, the Demon setting her free
And now you're cutting me down with a fucking tweet

Don't turn away from me
I gave you rock and roll all night
We party every day
You desert my army?!?
WHY???

You cast him aside but that bastard died a hero
Of all of our times, the bad times were less than zero
