Track Name: Fighting the Good Fight
When I was once very young

the air seemed so clean in my lungs.

Black and white was the name of the game,

Until my age took its aim.

You think your plans will never change,

But everything is now out of place.

The world has become so strange.

Everybody is crowding up your space.
I need someone to tell me

When everything went straight to hell.


Where did you go, the world I heard about

So many years ago?

Or was it just another lie?

How would I ever know?

The world is not how they say it is at all.


I'm surprised by what I had found,

nothing like the story that's around.

Everyone else has their feet on the ground.

Fairytale world has come unwound.

Cold as Ice, dog eat dog

All in all you're just another cog.

Dreams and hopes get me through the day,

But reality is forcing me to pay.

I need someone to tell me

When everything went straight to hell.


Where did you go, the world I heard about

So many years ago?

Or was it just another lie?

How would I ever know?

The world is not how they say it is at all.


I need someone to tell me
When everything went to hell.


Where did you go, the world I heard about

So many years ago?

Or was it just another lie?

How would I ever know?

The world is not how they say it is at all.
Track Name: So Much Time, So Little to Do
Sitting at my desk and I'm staring at the computer screen

Checking on the phone to see if it will ever ring.

I've taken the garbage out at least three times today

Won't somebody please call me cuz I'm bored in every way


Nobody wants to talk to me
And I don’t want to anyway
But just for now I guess
I’ll have to say

There's nothing to do
So I'm stuck thinking about you
Party time will come someday
But for now I'll have to say I'm bored.

I'm sure there's a party goin' down while I am here
Someone's getting laid and I just have a beer.
There's laughter in the distance but I'm so far away
Won't somebody please call me, cuz I don't want to stay

Nobody wants to talk to me
I didn't want to anyway
But just for now I guess
I will have to say

There's nothing to do
So I'm stuck thinking about you
Party time will come someday
But for now I'll have to say I'm bored.

Well the night's come to an end
and now I'm off to bed
But how can I get to sleep 
with all these thoughts inside my head

Maybe it was the 4 hour nap 
I took to past the time
Tomorrow might be different
But for now I guess I'm fine

Nobody wants to talk to me
I didn't want to anyway
But just for now I guess
I will have to say

There's nothing to do
So I'm stuck thinking about you
Party time will come someday
But for now I'll have to say I'm bored.
Track Name: Dancing for Clowns
Sometimes the truth can radiate

An ongoing debate

But will we seal our fate

By seeing through the shade

If faith is for the weak

Then he’s on an evil streak

And stronger than a song

Our questions are forgone

Addressing your concerns

And eating all you learn

Sending out the sounds

Our trouble all around

Trapped underground

And fearing for the worst

All angles have found

The thirsty leave the thirst


You’ll find in time there’s a bridge

Between traffic and the ratings

All of the lines, they seem to abide

But they’re wrapped around a mound

Chase reality and you’re finally gonna see

That the one you made isn’t free

Wrapped up in sound

And dancing for clowns

Cuz we’re laughing all the way


The truth is first one on the scene

And we all know just what it means

You’ll see it every other day

If you don’t look the other way

It’s like a whisper in the wind

You tell from strangers to your friends

Until the hungriest of all

Eats through to make the others fall

Wrapped up in sound

And dancing for clowns

You made the choice for me

But I would like a refund please

For all our crimes
They are not seen

Unless they’re obscene
The distance being


The suffering is for the machine

If we just let it do what it please

Cuz it’s laughing in our face
All above town and dancing for clowns

Independent thought can always starve them out

Whoa yeah cuz their laughing in our face

Whoa yeah cuz we’re fighting all the way.
Track Name: Shark Bite
It’s all a catastrophe

People keep screaming at me

That old radio keeps blaring paparazzi


What you think you know is wrong

Still you play those stupid songs

You think your high and mighty like big old King Kong


It is always haunting you it is always taunting you

You don’t really care even though you know
it is always hunting you and it is always taunting you

You don’t really care but it’s time you know


Brag and say that you are it

Think I really give a shit

You do nothing while they push us to the limit


You just want a little more
Well come one now you gossip whore
Make those little kiddies beg for more.


We all think it’s such a waste
When you put on your new face
You need to be set back in your place


It’s all a catastrophe

People still screaming at me

That old radio keeps playing paparazzi


It is always haunting you and it is always taunting you

You don’t really care even though you know

it is always hunting you and it is always taunting you

You don’t really care but it’s time you know


Shark bite!

It gonna hit you like 

Shark bite!

There’s no escaping the

Shark bite!

Don’t even try to run

Shark bite!

How long can you breathe

Shark bite!

It gonna hit you like

Shark bite!

There’s no escaping the

Shark bite!

Don’t even try to run

Shark bite!

How long can you breathe


Brag and say that you are it

Think I really give a shit

You do nothing while they push us to the limit


You just want a little more
Well get it now you gossip whore
Make those little kiddies beg for more.

We all think it’s such a waste
When you put on your new face
You need to be set back in your place


It’s all a catastrophe

People still screaming at me

That old radio still blaring paparazzi


It is always taunting you and it is always haunting you

You don’t really care even though you know

Cause it is always hunting you and it is always wanting you

You don’t really care but it’s time you know


Shark bite!

It gonna hit you like 

Shark bite!

There’s no escaping the

Shark bite!

Don’t even try to run

Shark bite!

How long can you breathe

Shark bite!

It gonna hit you like 

Shark bite!

There’s no escaping the

Shark bite!

Don’t even try to run

Shark bite!

How long can you breathe

Track Name: Drunk Tank
Yeah we can do body shots
Or have separate Shiner Bocs
Hell, I’ll get you any beer
If you’ll get over here
And dance with me
(AND SKANK THE NIGHT AWAY!)

And there’s a boy in the band
Who’s been staring at my tits
And there’s your boy in the back
On some other girls lips
And I gotta say, HEY
I like the way you move
(OH, SO SMOOTH)

You’re lips are so sweet
And if they’re as good as your feet
I’d let them walk all over me anytime.
I know this is cold, but my beer’s nice and cold
Won’t you dance with only me this time?

Here comes the boy from the bar
Who’s been looking at me
And there’s the cops at the door
Asking for your ID
And I gotta say, HEY
It’s time to make a move
(OUT THE BACK DOOR!)

You’re lips are so sweet
And if they’re as good as your feet
I’d let them walk all over me anytime.
I know this sounds weird, AH! I just spilt my beer
Oh here come the cops to get me!

And damn! I almost had it planned out.
Damn! My plans nearly panned out.

We’re in the back of the squad car
I know this won’t go far
But darling, I gotta say…

That DAMN! I almost fell through.
And DAMN! I’m sitting here beside you
In an orange jumpsuit.
Track Name: Third Time's the Charm
My father and his father always lived underground

And they wanted me to do the same.

But always doing what you're told and never rebelling

Can drive someone insane.

So I’ll just smile and nod without batting an eye

And say I'll keep the tradition.

I wonder what’s waiting out there for me,

I’m so tired of this condition
.

Everybody says I should stay out of sight.

There's never any drama when I'm out of mind

The impression that I get is if I take up flight

I'll leave so much behind.


From a classy New York to a classy San Diego,

I was rolling around in the underground.

One day I got curious and poked my head out

I couldn't believe what I'd found.

So many people with different tastes 

I wanted to be part of the scene

But nothing could prepare me for what happened next

It was something out of a dream.


Somebody came up to me and said "I dig your style,

Would you like to make a million bucks?"

"I'll show you to the public and they'll love every minute

As you tell them that everything sucks."


So I'll live my life

With no regrets.

Take a chance and never look back again.

If you're afraid of failure

Then don't forget,

That is why you fail
And the window of opportunity passes you by.

At first, it sounded sweet so I said "We have a deal"

And I signed above the dotted line.

But 15 minutes goes so fast they want something new,

Now ya don't cut even every time.

I'd like to say don't let the bastards grind you down,

but eventually it takes its toll.

So there's one thing left to do and I should do it soon

before I lose my soul.


I'm going underground, I’m going back to my roots.

I know I've got nothing to lose.

The impression that I get is I'll be welcomed back,

I hope they don't refuse.


So I'll live my life

With no regrets.

Take a chance and never look back again.

If you're afraid of failure

Then don't forget,

That is why you fail
And the window of opportunity passes you by.

Track Name: Twitter Me Your Love
It was a date with destiny

Your profile said you’re 5 foot 3

When you first sent that pic

I knew that you were the one for me


Our hearts are in e-harmony

Your chatting is so filling with glee

When you first LOLed

I fell in love with you


Twitter me your love

Our cyber romance is like a drug

I wish I could caress your smiley face

You text so fast I can't keep up the pace

And your emoticons turn me on

That is why I'm emailing you this song!


Our hearts are in e-harmony

Your chatting is so filling with glee

When you first LOLed

I fell in love with you


For a moment I almost thought that you were here

Whisper in my ear that you're in love (love)

All the buddies on my list

Well they've been getting pretty pissed

That I’m spending all my time with you

I think that we should meet 
right here on the street

So everyone can see our love

Yeah they’ll see our love


Twitter me your love

Our cyber romance is like a drug

I wish I could caress your smiley face

You text so fast I’ll never keep up the pace

And your emoticons turn me on

That is why I'm emailing you this song

Twitter me your love!
