Unreleased:

We’ll Have To Be Our Own Heroes
Always, for love and rarely for money.
We laughed and we laughed, but nothing was funny
We watched and we waited, the world fell to ruin
No heroes showed up, and we needed them soon.

We’ll have to be our own heroes.
We’ll have to be our own heroes

The champions, they called in sick that day
The villains were early, the cat was away
Angry, depressed, heartbroken and hollow
Angry, depressed, heartbroken and hollow, took a deep breath and chose a new path
A new path to follow

We’ll have to be our own heroes.
We’ll have to be our own heroes

So gather your courage time to make a stand, keep your elbows in hit as hard as you can
There’s nobody coming, so add up the zeros, I’ll tell you once more we’ll have to be our own heroes.
So gather your courage time to make a stand, keep your elbows in hit as hard as you can
There’s nobody coming, so add up the zeros, I’ll tell you once more we’ll have to be our own heroes.

Ignore Button
You give it half a chance and then you hit ignore. your time so precious…your elite aesthetic.
What are you busy with? What do you have in store? So many busy people, doing nothing.

We got this freedom but this is what we do with it? I’m disappointed to put it lightly.
Indifference the general rule, banish what is not known, a closed off system, protect the precepts

You’re talking to the wall; you’re talking to the dog
You’re talking but I don’t hear anything at all
Removed from the picture all of a sudden,
HIT! With the ignore button

You give it half a chance and then you hit ignore. Your time so precious…your elite aesthetic.
What are you busy with? What do you have in store? So many busy people, doing nothing.
You’re talking to the wall; you’re talking to the dog
You’re talking but I don’t hear anything at all

You’re talking to the wall; you’re talking to the dog
You’re talking but I don’t hear anything at all
Removed from the picture all of a sudden,
HIT! With the ignore button

The… heartbreak of being ignored, can be worse than being alone.
The… heartbreak of being ignored, can be worse than being alone.
The… heartbreak of being ignored, can be worse than being alone.
The… heartbreak of being ignored, can be worse than being alone.

Weightless and Pointless
I swear the floor just fell away, weightless and pointless without a sound
It’s incredible how fast things can change
It’s incredible how fast I’m moving now
Come on and hold my hand she said, and everything will be alright
that was only only one of the lies we shared
It’s cold now the horizon is out of sight.
Come on and hold my hand she said, and everything will be alright
That was only only one of the lies we shared
It’s cold now the horizon is out of sight.

I swear the world just fell away, not much point in even breathing now
Everything I love is so far away,
it just got a whole lot further now.

Come on and hold my hand she said, and everything will be alright
That was only only one of the lies we shared
It’s cold now the horizon is out of sight.
Come on and hold my hand she said, and everything will be alright
that was only only one of the lies we shared
it’s cold now the horizon is out of sight.

Oh! Captain can this truly be the end
to be ignored by your enemies and killed by your friends.
It can’t go on like this there is a message I must send.
It goes:
It’s your turn.
It’s your turn
It’s your turn

Everything’s Amazing (Nobody’s Happy)
We’ve got these phones!!! The signal goes up into space.
Just leave me alone, Conversations I’d rather erase.
Oh, you’re bored? This ain’t the time nor the place
Everybody’s a star, and they’re all in my face
So far so bad, what else is there to say?
Let me make this plain.
You’re burning in entitlement and drowning in privilege.

Because everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy
Nobody’s happy
Because everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy
Nobody’s happy
Because everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy
Nobody’s happy
Because everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy
Nobody.

You’ve got some balls, to conduct yourself this way, its worth mentioning.
We won’t be here forever and hey that’s ok.
Is there anybody actively burning your fields are things really so hard you cannot deal?
You’ve lost the reason but kept the rhyme
Would you like some cheese with that whine?
Can you hear these complaints you have said?
Do you truly wish you were dead?
HARDLY
You’re still burning in entitlement and drowning in privilege

Because everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy
Nobody’s happy
Because everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy
Nobody’s happy
Because everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy
Nobody’s happy
Because everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy
Nobody.

Now! What do we now? Now! What do we now?
Everything’s amazing! Nobody’s Happy!
Now! What do we now? Now! What do we now?
Everything’s amazing! Nobody’s Happy!

Now! What do we now? Now! What do we now?
Everything’s amazing! Nobody’s Happy!
Now! What do we now? Now! What do we now?
Everything’s amazing! Nobody’s Happy!
What do we do?

Exasperated, Inc

We’re coming in one wing down, the engine is on fire
Not given half of what we need and none of what we desire
Exasperation grows, don’t you know?
Have you been damned by faint praise or no praise at all?
Nobody acknowledges your rise; they just wait for the fall.
Exasperation grows, don’t you know?

So dream big, and live small,
as if you had a choice at all.
Exasperation grows, don’t you know?
So much character built, so many loose ends
What you learn is you can and that it never ends.
Exasperation grows, don’t you know?

It used to be beat the odds, now it’s beat the clock
Spent most of this life screaming outside the airlock

Come on, come on, come on… this has to be a put on…
Is this truly the only earth that I can live on?
Exasperated, Inc.
It’s worse than you think.
Exasperated,
And this world will drag you down if you let it… so don’t let it!
Have you been left for dead? Been beaten and spurned
Assigned more woe than what has been earned.
Exasperation grows, don’t you know?
Keep one eye on the future, one in history
won’t be ruled by mediocre misery.
Exasperation grows, don’t you know?

It used to be beat the odds, now it’s beat the clock
I spent most of this life screaming outside the airlock

Come on, come on this has to be a put on…
Is this truly the only earth that I can live on?
Exasperated, Inc.
It’s worse than you think.
Exasperated, Inc.
It’s worse than you think.
Exasperated.

And this world will drag you down if you let it… so don’t let it!
And this world will drag you down if you let it… so don’t let it!
And this world will drag you down if you let it… so don’t let it!

The End of Memory
No past! No history!
No awareness of any kind of anything you see
Information cloud, means nothing to me
Welcome one and all to the end of memory.

Haunted by ideas, haunted by our own mortality
Haunted by convenience, unaware of history
This is no utopia; this society gets a “D”
This is the future this is the end of memory
End of memory
End of memory
End of memory

Implicit trust on everything you read
That’s how we roll at the end of memory
No critical thinking man, it’s unnecessary
Nobody is listening anyhow.
No critical thinking man, it’s unnecessary
Nobody is listening anyhow.

For Serious:
—-
There’s no prize for indifference, no award for irony.
Share your perfect aloofness, we can share the disease
Some folks they call this a problem, I call it opportunity.
No time for noble detachment, we’re too busy doing things

This is for real, this is For Serious. don’t you know that this is for Serious?
This is for real, this is For Serious. don’t you know that this is for Serious?
Is this is for real, is this is For Serious?
This is for real, I swear that this is For Serious.

This world it makes me sick, i’ve had enough of snarky quips.
Innovations been eclipsed, by references and mimics
tell me: where, where, oh where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?
What, what do we do know, the attention span it wanes, but
going to tell you anyhow.

This is for real, this is For Serious. don’t you know that this is for Serious?
This is for real, this is For Serious. don’t you know that this is for Serious?
This is for real, this is For Serious. don’t you know that this is for Serious?
This is for real, this is For Serious. don’t you know that this is for Serious?

“Are We Having Fun Yet?”
There are things you hope and there are things you know
Is there valor in holding on, or is it better to let go?
You live the true bits, you fake the fake bits
Keep it simple and on you go
In glad we had this talk, there’s just one question I must disclose
Tell me:
Are we having fun yet?
Are we having fun yet?
Get to the point, I haven’t got all night.
Yeah that’s what she said
Are we having fun yet?

There are things you want and there are things you need
Is it wiser to carry on, or is it better to concede?
You find the balance. delicate balance, between delusion, disappointment and hope
Stir it up in a crock pot, but just try not to become a Trope
Are we having fun yet?
Are we having fun yet?
Get to the point, I haven’t got all night.
Yeah that’s what she said
Are we having fun yet?

A Cheeky Little With For Your Attention
It’s not how you fall; it’s the way you get back up yeah. At least that’s what I tell myself
If a dream falls in the woods, does it make a sound yeah? Is anyone listening at all?
NOPE

What’s past is prologue, what’s done can’t be undone now.
At least I think that’s what she said.
Used to be best the odds, now it’s more like beat the clock
I’ve had a whole lot of wonder beat out of me
YUP.

I just wish that I could
I could get through to you at all
Everybody’s talking, but we are all talking to the wall.
The time is now, not later. Let’s get this done no time to stall

ooooh!
If I could get through to you at all.
Everybody’s talking, but we are all talking to the wall.
Let’s get this done no time to stall
It’s just a cheeky wish that’s all.

Would it be so bad? We can keep things interesting
Nobody’s interested at all.
Your attention please! This tension has good intentions
A cheeky wish to heed the call.
YUP.

I just wish that I could
I could get through to you at all
Everybody’s talking, but we are all talking to the wall.
The time is now, not later. Let’s get this done no time to stall

Taste The Danger
Up in Kenosha, WI, up in Chugiak, A.K.
Some kids are bending time and space and don’t give a damn about what you say
They laugh at rules and structure; they scoff at thoughts of fame
In any town USA, they’re about to change the game

You can… taste the danger, feel the pain
For every four that fall away, five more will take their place
You can…taste the danger, feel the pain
For every four that walk away, five more will take their place

We threw ourselves against the wall, we defied gravity, we were shot out of the airlock before many folks could see
Screaming in a vacuum, hard to get much worse: “it’s your turn now kids”, the message said.
You can… taste the danger, feel the pain
For every four that fall away, five more will take their place
You can…taste the danger, feel the pain
For every four that walk away, five more will take their place
You can… taste the danger, feel the pain
For every four that fall away, five more will take their place
You can…taste the danger, feel the pain
For every four that walk away, five more will take their place


Plausibly Wild
Let’s check this situation carefully
Good times are feasible it just depends upon you and me.
Will it be time for fists or time for a kiss?
It’s a reasonable expectation for things to get redonkulous

The scene’s set for good times, it’s plain to see.
You could state the case convincingly.
It’s plausibly… it’s plausibly… it’s plausibly….

WILD!
WILD!
Wild in the streets… wild in the bars…
the potential for good times is off the charts.
We’ll get wild…
Plausibly WILD.

Grab a drink and people watch.Yes, everybodies doing fine.
A couple more nodding heads, some smiles and good times.
a little less awkward as a few more frowns turn to grins.
Let me inform you that good times can now begin

The scene’s set for good times, it’s plain to see.
You could state the case convincingly.
It’s plausibly… it’s plausibly… it’s plausibly….

WILD!
WILD!
Wild in the streets… wild in the bars…
the potential for good times is off the charts.
We’ll get wild…
Plausibly WILD.

Let’s get Plausible.

Wildly Plausible
Could it be that there’s more here than meets the eye?
Would you conceded that it could come around this time?
Do you propose that the good guys always finish last?
What would you say if i laid out the plan?

Wildly plausible , certainly possible.
Complain and complain, your protests are inaudible.

Would you agree that there’s more here then meets the eye?
Would you believe that it could come around this time?
If you understand probablity, it makes sense you see… this too will pass.
Offer expires soon so, you better act fast.

Friend Rock City

Another Tuesday night show, duty or obligation? Man… I don’t know.
Record release I guess, gonna need 4 beers to get through this mess.
I’m rooting for them to win, but I wouldn’t be here if they weren’t my friends
Is it kindness or enabling… bad art, you see sucking really ain’t my scene.

Come down to Friend Rock City, we can friend rock out, you know it’s such a pity
(Six bands on a Tuesday night, been here three hours, gonna be here all night!)
Come down to Friend Rock City, we can friend rock out, you know it’s such a pity
(Six bands on a Tuesday night, been here three hours, gonna be here all night!)

Not trying to be a martyr, in truth I just wish that they’d try harder.
not trying to be a dick, all this friend rocking out really makes me sick
Another Tuesday night show, duty or obligation? Man… I don’t know.
7 hours and i’ll be at work, If I bail early, would that make me a jerk?

Come down to Friend Rock City, we can friend rock out, you know it’s such a pity
(Six bands on a Tuesday night, been here three hours, gonna be here all night!)
Come down to Friend Rock City, we can friend rock out, you know it’s such a pity

Get Tough, Get Through It:
You say I’m wasting my time, you say i’m wasting my life (get tough, get through it, alright!)
Tilting at windmills, fighting the good fight (get tough, get through it, alright!)
You think that we’re wrong, we’re painfully right (get tough, get through it, alright!)
Thought we reached new lows, but we’ve reached new heights (get tough, get through it, alright!)

You have to stick with it, you have to hold true
even when you can’t win for losing,
in fact, then it’s especially true.

You get tough! you get through it,
because the hope is all we know,
and we’ll sing the songs to prove it

You get tough! you get it done,
even when it all falls apart,
even when it seems really dumb.

I say it’s sincere, you say that it’s trite (get tough, get through it, alright!)
keep the poison inside, just swallow my pride (get tough, get through it, alright!)
hate your attitude, but keep moving in spite (get tough, get through it, alright!)
working on a checkmate, with a bishop and a knight (get tough, get through it, alright!)

Everyday is a promise, everyday is a gift
even when it’s an ugly sweater that doesn’t fit

You get tough! you get through it,
because the hope is all we know,
and we’ll sing the songs to prove it

You get tough! you get it done,
even when it all falls apart,
even when it seems really dumb.

It’s not dumb.

You get tough! you get it done,
even when it all falls apart,
even when it seems really dumb.

You get tough! you get through it,
because the hope is all we know,
and we’ll sing the songs to prove it

You Can’t Eat Prestige:
It doesn’t end like this, they don’t get to win.
This is a cheat, we won’t take the short end
Keep us scrambling for scraps, while they make off with the bank
take us from behind and expect us to say thanks

Well the war is over, the fight was fixed
a campaign to make you poor, while they stay rich.
This isn’t the last chapter, i’m turning the pages back
we’ve been defending too long, let’s plot a counter attack

You just, live life like you’re under siege
you can’t pay bills with praise, you can’t eat prestige

I’ve been down so long, I stopped making up jokes
I’d need some investors to get up to broke
and it’s like: 1,2,3,4, they declared a class war
and all we declared was bankruptcy

Neverending struggle, neverending strife
you did a great job, better luck next life
they look down at us, riding high in the stirrup
they kick us while we’re down, how about we kick them while they’re up?

You just, live life like you’re under siege
you can’t pay bills with praise, you can’t eat prestige

Brothers Doing It For Themselves:
Well, we can’t wait very much longer
We already waited half our lives
it all moves at the pace of a glacier
if you want something done right
you do it for yourself

brothers doing it for themselves
brothers doing it for themselves
brothers doing it for themselves
brothers doing it for themselves

Doubtbreak:
—-
Flat out wasted, you’re flat out wasting away.
Long dark tea time, of the soul, you used to make them pay
You used to be cool man, whatever happened to those days?
Wish you could follow through yeah, follow through on half the things you say.

I’ll believe in you, and you can believe in me
I’ll believe in you, even when you don’t believe in me
We will repeat (we will repeat!), until we get it right
we still aim high, we will not lower our sights

Flat out foolish, can’t believe a single word you say
All talk, no action, why must you open the haterade?
All hands on deck now! We’re needed, time to save this day
No time for this doubtbreak, the antigen is on it’s way.

I’ll believe in you, and you can believe in me
I’ll believe in you, even when you don’t believe in me
We will repeat (we will repeat!), until we get it right
we still aim high, we will not lower our sights

You Can’t Stop The Signal:
—-

Fought the good fight, but the ship still sunk (you cannot stop the signal)
The captain’s dead and the first mate’s drunk (you cannot stop the signal)
This ship, it could be your life (you cannot stop the signal)
Every failure and regret cutting like a knife… if you let it.

There are other stories, but this ones ours
We shall not falter we will not cower
Tell this story to every girl and boy
You can’t stop the signal, can’t stop the noise.

Treading water in a sea of despair,
riding the cliches and gasping for air
This boat is sinking and it’s in no way just
you spy a sign and what is written to us?

We heard you.
somebody listened, somebody cared
We heard you
somebody listened, somebody cared
somebody listened out there

There are other stories, but this ones ours
We shall not falter we will not cower
You’ll want to tell this tale to every girl and boy
You can’t stop the signal, can’t stop the noise.

Treading water in a sea of despair,
riding the cliches and gasping for air
This boat is sinking and it’s in no way just
you spy a sign and what is written to us?

We heard you.
somebody listened, somebody cared
We heard you
somebody listened, somebody cared
somebody listened out there

Funundrum:

Funundrum:
It’s not funny, it’s not fun! We’re not trying to pull a fast one.
It’s not funny, it’s not fun! We’re not trying to pull a fast one.

First things first, let’s oversimplify the problem… it’s not fun, it’s not funny!
no heroes, no idols, why would we want them?… it’s not fun, it’s not funny!
Hope you have a great time, racing to the bottom… it’s not fun, it’s not funny!

We’ve got a crisis here I see, this funundrum it tasks me
and furthermore
the good guys never get ink like the bad guys do,
they aren’t laughing with you they’re laughing at you.
It’s not funny, it’s not fun! We’re not trying to pull a fast one.
It’s not funny, it’s not fun! We’re not trying to pull a fast one.
It’s not funny, it’s not fun! We’re not trying to pull a fast one.
It’s not funny, it’s not fun! We’re not trying to pull a fast one.

second things second, fun isn’t always flippant… it’s not fun, it’s not funny!
there’s a major difference between sardonic and irreverent… it’s not fun, it’s not funny!
You’re disaffected and detached, yeah, ok… we get it… it’s not fun, it’s not funny!

We’ve got a crisis here I see, this funundrum it tasks me
and furthermore
the good guys never get ink like the bad guys do,
they aren’t laughing with you they’re laughing at you.
It’s not funny, it’s not fun! We’re not trying to pull a fast one.
It’s not funny, it’s not fun! We’re not trying to pull a fast one.
It’s not funny, it’s not fun! We’re not trying to pull a fast one.
It’s not funny, it’s not fun! We’re not trying to pull a fast one.

Not Returning:
—-
I left my hometown like a convict in a prison break,
small mindedness and boredom were just too hard to take.
I left my hometown like a bullet leaves a loaded gun,
had I stayed well I’m sure I would have killed someone
I left my hometown because it did not suit my taste
no plan… no money… and no time to waste.
I left my hometown without a thought or care,
I left my hometown, because I could not stand it there.

Just…
Get out, just bail… nothing for me might as well set sail
Get out, hit the road… wherever I end up is home
get out, can’t take on more… burn it down because I don’t live there anymore
Get out, show some pep… the longest journey begins with one step

I left my hometown like a lifeboat leaves a sinking ship,
I saw the life ahead and, I was just done with it,
I left my hometown because of cultural toxicity
I needed more than liquor stores and cable tv
I left my hometown without ever looking back.
unleashed on the world just like a heart attack
I left my hometown for adventure and exciting things,
I’m out, I’m gone, I’m not returning.

Just…
Get out, just bail… nothing for me might as well set sail
Get out, hit the road… wherever I end up is home
get out, can’t take on more… burn it down because I don’t live there anymore
Get out, show some pep… the longest journey begins with one step

Get out! Get out! Get out! Get out!
and never come back.
Get out! Get out! Get out! Get out!
we’re not returning
Get out! Get out! Get out! Get out!
We’re outta here.
Get out! Get out! Get out! Get out!
Get out! Get out! Get out!
Get the hell out!

Noises, Voices, You:
We’ve been away too long, hello we’re back
Not on the defense, but on the attack,
You see the bad times were a wee bit too bad,
and the sad times soul breakingly sad
But we’re still standing, we’re still breathing
we’ve been beaten, but yes, we are healing
Don’t need your approval ok?
But I do need you to get out of the way.

So! Hit the shuffle on that old noise we made,
the past is gone, long gone, this is true.
We’ll reminisce and try not to complain
lowered expectations the general rule
Some people get a kick out of pissing on your dreams
these people, they have no clue,
There’s only one thing I need to carry on and that’s:
Noises, Voices… Noises, Voices and you.
Noises, Voices and you.
Noises, Voices and you.
Noises, Voices and you.

So! Hit the shuffle on that old noise we made,
the past is gone, long gone, this is true.

There’s only one thing I need to carry on and that’s:

Noises, Voices and you.
Noises, Voices and you.
Noises, Voices and you.

Mistake Museum:
1st floor is every failed dream, 2nd floor every bad date
3rd floor is broken promises and words spoken out of hate.
admission may be pricey, everyone’s got a season pass
this is your life, it’s starring you, and it’s disappearing fast.

too fast.

Let’s get a move on, break these chains.
we’re more than the sum of our mistakes

5th floor is the pitch you let sail past, 6th floor has the ones you missed,
7th floor is a lack of follow through, 8th floor is a blatant dis
everyone who’s ever brought you down is super stoked to see them
you can find them on display in the mistake museum.

Let’s get a move on, break these chains.
we’re more than the sum of our mistakes
shut the door it is ajar
the past is not all that we are

So now jump… might as well jump… go on ahead and jump… they’d like you jump…
just a little bit higher, a little bit higher
we need a change (just a little bit higher! a little bit higher!)
we’re more than the sum of our mistakes (just a little bit higher! a little bit higher!)
let’s get a move on, break these chains (just a little bit higher! a little bit higher!)
won’t be another artifact on display (just a little bit higher! a little bit higher!)
shut the door it is ajar (just a little bit higher! a little bit higher!)
the past is not all that we are (just a little bit higher! a little bit higher!)

Home Is Where You Hang Your Hope:

We’ve spent our whole lives waiting for the good things to start (and we’re ready!)
We’ve spent our whole lives waiting, waiting and just failing apart
sometimes bad things happen for, no reason at all
and it’s usually darkest, right before the fall.

This face will start a future, these hands destroy the past
Together we can do it, hoist the flag up on the mast
What is past is prologue, what’s done can’t be undone
I do not care what came before, we can make it if we run

Home is where you hang your hope
Home is where you hang your hope
Home is where you hang your hope
Home is where you hang your hope, we got tough, we got through it

We’ve spent our whole lives working someone else’s dream(and we’re ready!)
we’re ready, we’re not waiting, it’s closer than it seems
Sometimes this cruel old world can, break apart your soul
Close your eyes, get tough, we’ll fly right out of the hole

This face will start a future, these hands destroy the past
Together we can do it, hoist the flag up on the mast
What is past is prologue, what’s done can’t be undone
I do not care what came before, we can make it if we run

Home is where you hang your hope
Home is where you hang your hope
Home is where you hang your hope
Home is where you hang your hope, we got tough, we got through it

Turn Down The Guitars:
—-
Turn the guitars down! It’s time to sculpt the sound
The volume is too high, he’s not horsing around
Turn the guitars down! It is a classic standoff
We’d like to play at 11, he’d like to turn us off
Turn the guitars down! No melting of face
and that is the reason, this song features the bass
Turn the guitars down! You have to know your role
or you, won’t hear the vocals
because there’s no loud guitars in rock ‘n roll.
no!

This band is much too loud, they’ll never succeed unless they turn it down (turn it down!)
And in case you forget (it’s too loud!) that is as low as it gets
This band is much too loud, they’ll never succeed unless they turn it down (I’ts too loud!)
We’re rocking to you (turn it down!)
Turn it down you fool

Turn the guitars down! It’s too ding dang loud
This room sounds much different, when there is a crowd
Turn the guitars down! Or he’ll, increase the fade
Our volume the inverse, of how much we get paid
Turn the guitars down! We have no time to kill
And that is the reason, this line has a drum fill
Turn the guitars down! And adjust the PA
No reverb is needed, just crank up the vocals
and drop the 7K!

This band is much too loud, they’ll never succeed unless they turn it down (turn it down!)
And in case you forget (it’s too loud!) that is as low as it gets
This band is much too loud, they’ll never succeed unless they turn it down (I’ts too loud!)
We’re rocking to you (turn it down!)
Turn it down you fool

Turn down, turn down, turn down the guitars!
Turn down, turn down, turn down the guitars!
Turn down, turn down, turn down the guitars!
Turn down, turn down, turn down the guitars!

    Thousandaire:


You say you’ve got a place where,
dreams just go to die
Well, we say: “Clear the runway”
we are about to take flight
So many people try to shoot us down
because it’s easier than trying
we’re too interested in living
they are too busy dying

You say I’m born to lose, but baby, I’m born to win,
failure is still a problem, but not trying is the sin

You may doubt my success, but baby I’m a thousandaire
millions can bring the bummer, but man I hardly care
I am not much for preaching, but lethargy’s a sin (let the Jesus in!)
Don’t just prepare to lose, you must prepare to win

Prepare to win!

There’s been so many people,
they try to tell us: “No way”
So many reasons not to try,
why even get out of bed?
So, that’s why we’re here to tell you:
“You can do anything.”
Let’s power through this one baby,
we have no time for apathy. No, no.

You say I’m born to lose, but baby, I’m born to win,
failure is still a problem but not trying is the sin
And when we have our chance, we’ll make it a real thing,
give me just one win my dear, and I can do anything.

You may doubt my success, but baby I’m a thousandaire
millions can bring the bummer, but man I hardly care
I am not much for preaching, but lethargy’s a sin (Let the Jesus in!)
Don’t just prepare to lose, you must prepare to win

Prepare to win!
Prepare to win!

You may doubt my success, but baby I’m a thousandaire
millions can bring the bummer, but man I hardly care
I am not much for preaching, but lethargy’s a sin
Don’t just prepare to lose, you must prepare to win

Party Savior:

You’d like to get away (Suit up! suit up! Where’s the Party?)

Lies, and the Lying Liars That Sell Them:

You make me wish, I belived in Hell, so you could go there (yeah, yeah!)
Some sweet comeuppance, with your platitudes getting you nowhere (yeah,
yeah!)
Emperor had no clothes, but you kicked up dust,you played your role.
(yeah, yeah!)
Hey Karl, You may be a genius, but you’re still an asshole.

We are…
Surprised by the size of your lies
You sell fear in a cunning disguise
Repulsed by how you sell the lie
You’re a waste of flesh, and we’re low on supplies
outraged by the strength of your lies.
You sell fear in a cunning disguise
you are so good at selling the lie
worst of all you think you’re a good guy.

MC Rove was the hit of the political season (yeah, yeah!)
You controlled the message, you controlled the medium (yeah, yeah!)
So tell me Karl, why are you hated, tell me what is the reason? (yeah, yeah!)
See Karl: We think you should be hanged, be hanged for treason.

We are…
Surprised by the size of your lies
You sell fear in a cunning disguise
Repulsed by how you sell the lie

outraged by the strength of your lies.
You’re a waste of flesh, and we’re low on supplies
you are so good at selling the lie
worst of all you think you’re a good guy.

The tragedy isn’t just with the lies, it’s the liar that sells them.
The tragedy isn’t just with the lies, it’s the liar that sells them.
The tragedy isn’t just with the lies, it’s the liar that sells them.
The tragedy isn’t just with the lies, it’s the liar that sells them.

You lie, lie, lie, but you can’t stand up
You sell us: lies, lies, lies and chaos erupts
you sell us: lies, lies, lies won’t you please shut up?
you sell us: lies, lies, lies won’t you please shut up?

SHUT UP!

Hey Karl, you may be a genius, but you’re still an asshole.

Relentless!:
—-
And you can’t make us wait forever
You could stop us if you tried
we made no claims it would be easy
we simply will not be denied

We never said that we were perfect
Can save that for those without sin
all i’ll say is to get prepared babe
get yourself ready for an epic win.

so get ready.

We reach, we try, never stop punching, never say die (never say die), no, no, no, no, no never!
You say, you’re dragged down by my song,
to hell with that I’ll prove you wrong, we’ll prove you wrong, we’ll prove you wrong, we’ll prove you wrong.

Keep people busy with the small things,
and the big things they will just slip by
Did you think this would be easy?
Relentless we never say die!

Here’s a toast for those who don’t follow the script
for good things that don’t die on the vine
If there is one thing I have learned here,
the first battle is fought in the mind.

And we’re winning…

We reach, we try, never stop punching, never say die (never say die), no, no, no, no, no never!
You say, you’re dragged down by my song,
to hell with that I’ll prove you wrong, we’ll prove you wrong,
we’ll prove you wrong, we’ll prove you wrong.

You say, you’re dragged down by my song, to hell with that we’ll prove you wrong, today, and i’ll celebrate.
You say, you’re dragged down by my song, to hell with that we’ll prove you wrong, today, and i’ll celebrate.

Also Rans, Has Beens, and Never Was:

It’s amazing that it’s that it’s come to this, the backlash is prepared while you’re killing it, they’re too old… they don’t have the right look
The keys to success are as simple as this, be already famous or be a hot chick… oh oh! 16-24 only

They can think what they like, it’s their loss we won’t act out of spite
Don’t be such a fool, you’ll fail life and miss everything cool
Don’t be such a dolt, great stuff is made past thirty years old.
They’ve got bread, where’s the meat?
They keep cranking out young folks, but we’ve got ’em beat.

Also rans… has beens… never was…
You never were that much of a threat, but we got something you won’t soon forget.
Also rans… has beens… never was…
Don’t be so quick to declare it a fail, life gives you a lemon, say eff the lemons and… bail

You’re so close-minded I wish I was a tree, you’re as out of touch as you let yourself be, oh oh… it is a simple choice
The problem these days is the signal to noise, survival of the fittest is the default poise, oh oh… eye of the tiger

They can think what they like, it’s their loss we won’t act out of spite
Don’t be such a fool, you’ll fail life and miss everything cool
Don’t be such a dolt, great stuff is made past thirty years old.
They’ve got bread, where’s the meat?
They keep cranking out young folks, but we’ve got ’em beat.

You never were that much of a threat, but we got something you won’t soon forget.
Also rans… has beens… never was…
Bukowski wrote his first book at 49, no-one believed in Van Gough when he was alive

So here’s a kiss for the last ones picked, who solider on no matter who gets it… that’s how we roll
So why would we do this if we can’t profit? Why waste your life on something so foolish? oh oh, if you have to ask…
you’ll never… know
