Track Name: Who Says
Who says you can't be different
Who says you need acceptance

Like a stone around my neck with the chains
In their hands and keys in my pockets
I'd take it off if I could just find them
And I did but I guess I just lost it

How in heaven and hell is this happening
When all I knew was myself and now I'm nothing
I beg and barter to bother you
Because my stomach is sick and sour from the truth

Who says you have to pay to play
Who says that you should stay

My time is time that's a friend of mine
It keeps the comfort of a misanthropic kind
Even if I'm digging in a trash can and shivering
I bet your damn ear, you'll hear me whistling

All your life they said you were living strange
Well who says that you need another way
Who says the life you want is wrong
And who says that you've been trying too long

It's happening again
It's happening again
It's happening again
It's happening again

Who says what you want is wrong
Who says that love is not enough
Who says you can't be what you want
Who says, who says
Track Name: Virginia Law
Laid out hands cold as clams
Looking at a shade I say goddamn
Hold me up with the night forgotten
Beggars and breeders need only be sharpened

Playing shot for shot I connect the dots
Five hours and still nothing
Told myself I'd be cold as hell
But my cicle heart starts ringing her bell

I don't know about Virginia Law
But if I'm sipping on a drink you know I'll figure it out
All I wanna do is lose and get back home
Just pick up my things and go

City people like to settle down
Like its all just one big hotbed town
Oh Lord you gotta take me away
They've got me checkmate stuck on minimum wage

My intuitions asking questions
Like a rusty metal hook with infection
They caught me thinking impatiently
So I got up to leave, but then they broke my knees

I don't know about Virginia Law
But if I'm sipping on a drink you know I'll figure it out
All I wanna do is lose and get back home
Just pick up my things and go

Another fleeting moment has bound you in ropes
Drawn and quartered without any hope
It's the same shit but different day
And six feet deeper, there's got to be another way

I don't know about Virginia Law
But if I'm sipping on a drink you know I'll figure it out
All I wanna do is lose and get back home
Just pick up my things and go
Track Name: Louder Now
I've been waitin around down on the pavement
Sittin and standin behind a cigarette
If it's something you want, don't wanna do
If it's too much to ask then fuck you

If it's nothing you want, then fuck you
If it's nothing you need, then fuck you
If it's nothing you want, then fuck you
If it's nothing you need, then fuck you

I've been waitin around down on the pavement
Sittin and standin behind a cigarette
All this time now that you're gonna make me lose
If it was up to me I'd say fuck you

All that I want, is to fuck you
All that I need, is to fuck you
All that I want, is to fuck you
All that I need, is to fuck you

I've been waitin around down on the pavement
Sittin and standin behind a cigarette
If it's something you want don't wanna do
Why the hell did you call me, now fuck you

I've been waitin around down on the pavement
Sittin and standin behind a cigarette
I'll take you here and I'll take you there
Waitin hours for you just to make it clear

Wont feel myself or fill me with regret
Don't need to be your dummy or your pet
A little louder and louder now I get through
Now hear me last when I say fuck you
Track Name: Alice
She smiles as she weeps
At the stairs they are steep
An ever pending doom

Locked up away tightly
With the scars she stitched quietly
An accompanied solitude

She's dressed so politely
With etiquette and stockings
And hair that's brushed every noon

Then sits by her window
Clutching a pillow
Staring at the moon
Yes, she stares at the moon

They stole her when tender
To obey rules forever
Disguised in a signature tune

Her minds been twisted
Determined and committed
For a white porcelain room

One razor one blade
Still sharply untamed
Don't be a fool to ever presume

Instructed to learn
Dropped in water that burns
Then scatters the fluid with a broom
Yes, She bleeds to cover the gloom

Alice, Alice
Alice I'm begging of you
She speaks no evil, hears no evil
And sees no evil too
No, Evil will never consume

Her seeds of paranoia
Breed passages of horror
A basement built in the womb

But Alice is clever
and placates surrender
To the evil she communes

Unstable and psychotic
She bends the demonic
And discovers their golden doubloons

A crowd waits upside
This child is thrust into the light hearing,
"The world will take advantage of you"
Yes, the world will take advantage of you
Yes, the world will take advantage of you
Yes, the world will take advantage of you
And yes, you will take advantage too
Track Name: War on Error
Say you're the privileged
Say you deserve it
I'm sick from all your sickness
Now leave me alone

Tell me how and why come
Tell me which are rich ones
All your easy efforts will be undone
Every single one of ya's, I'll strip you to the bone

Please ask me to stop
Please beg me to stop
Where and when do we belong
Where can we find love

I wont kill you cause you're already dead
Self-absorbed, entitled, half-mast spoiled kids
You're a soft shit son
You're a soft shit son
We're coming for ya
California
Track Name: Under the Sun
When it comes around
You'll be off your guard
It's so sad but it is
Feeling like a kid that's caught and it

Like a dry sponge
Every time I go up above
It's all I ever think about
The pressure causes it to run out

Sunshine on me
Sunshine on me
Sunshine under the sun
Sunshine is all I want

I rise to watch you fall
From my house for rent
Come and watch them now
But I am all that's ever really left

Everyone I have loved
Has become someone else
With the taste of something new
You have all changed, but I am the same

Sunshine on me
Sunshine on me
Sunshine under the sun
Sunshine is all I want

Sunshine on me
Sunshine on me
Sunshine under the sun
Sunshine is all I want
Track Name: One Last Midnight
When the needle hits the eye
It attracts me like no lover
When the needle hits the eye
It attracts me like no lover

My mother told me
"Don't you break down and cry"

When the needle hits the spoon
It retracts me like no other
When the needle hits the spoon
It retracts me like no other

My father told me, he said,
"Son, one day you're gonna die"
Track Name: Black & Gold
I'll tell you once more like I told you before
I'll say it again, please help me my friend
It comes and it goes, it ebbs and it flows
But hell has always been my heaven remissed

And I'll tell you once more how this black turns to gold
Cause I know just how a bad man grows

Not every good boy does fine all of the time
I have to pull my eyes out to escape the sight
They salt my wounds and take off my shoes
They sink my feet deep inside a Spanish Boot

And I'll tell you once more how this black turns to gold
Cause I know just how a bad man grows

The laws of reflection charge the cause of rejection
And Maxwell's equation is making me anxious
Connecting my thoughts through magnetic laws
I see my soul floating down the black canal

And I've been there before and I'm doing it more
And that's just how a bad man grows
