Track Name: Song For The Deaner
STICK TO THE PLAN - YOU GOTTA GIVE’R
TURN ON THE COLOR - YOU GOTTA GIVE’R
GIVE WHAT YOU GOT - YOU GOTTA GIVE’R
NOW DIDDLE HER TWATT - AND KEEP ON GIVIN’ER

TURN DOWN THE SUCK, TURN UP THE GOOD
SHOTGUN YOUR BEER LIKE IT SHOULD
IT’S NOT SO MUCH WHAT YOU DO THAN HOW YOU DO IT
CAUSE LIVING A NORMAL LIFE IS OVERRATED

STICK TO THE PLAN - YOU GOTTA GIVE’R
FIGHT LIKE A MAN - YOU GOTTA GIVE’R
TAKE ON THE HIT - YOU BETTER GIVE’R
GO BREAKING SOME SHIT - AND KEEP ON GIVIN’ER

I GUESS IT’S SAFE TO SAY THEY’RE COMPLETELY
FUCKED UP BEYOND ALL RECOGNITION X 2

THE SHIT’S ON DEAN, HOW FUCKIN’ MEAN
SO UNFAIR HOW LIFE CAN BE
A TASTE OF BAD LUCK BUT BEFORE ITS GONE
GET WASTED AS FUCK WITH TERRY AND TRON

STICK TO THE PLAN - WE’RE GONNA GIVE’R
DRINK ALL YOU CAN - WE’RE GONNA GIVE’R
THE PARTY IS ON - YOU GOTTA GIVE’R
YOU KNOW THE SONG - JUST KEEP ON GIVIN’ER

I GUESS IT’S SAFE TO SAY THEY’RE COMPLETELY
FUCKED UP BEYOND ALL RECOGNITION X 2

TRON FUNKIN BLOW, HOW ARE WE TO KNOW

I GUESS IT’S SAFE TO SAY THEY’RE COMPLETELY
FUCKED UP BEYOND ALL RECOGNITION X 2

NO DOUBT THEY’RE
ABSOLUTELY FUCKED UP BEYOND ALL RECOGNITION X 2

TRON FUNKIN BLOW, HOW ARE WE TO KNOW
Track Name: Coast To Coast
FAR AWAY UNDER THE SUN
ON A LAND THAT STANDS SURROUNDED BY OCEAN
INHABIT PEOPLE SEPARATED IN TWO
AND THE HALF THEY GOT WASN’T THEIRS TO CHOOSE

SOME HAVE A PROMISING FUTURE AHEAD
FOOD ON THEIR TABLE A ROOF AND A BE
WHILE THE OTHER HALF ARE LEFT TO BE RAISED ON THEIR OWN

WAKING UP TO THE SOUND OF GUNS
FALLING ASLEEP TO THE SOUND OF EXPLOSIONS
HOPING THIS MISERY WON’T LAST
WAKING UP TO DUSTY RUINS
FALLING ASLEEP TO ACHING WOUNDS
HOPING THIS DAY WILL BE YOUR LAST

FAR AWAY UNDER THE SUN
ON AN ISLAND SOAKED IN CONTRADICTION
FROM A COAST WITH BIG RESORTS
PRIVATE BEACHES AND TENNIS COURT

TO A COAST WITH JUST ABOUT NOTHING AT ALL
GOOD LOVING PEOPLE HELD AGAINST THE WAL
BY THEIR OWN REGIME OF BACKSTABBING BULLIES AND WRECKLESS REBELS

WAKING UP TO THE SOUND OF GUNS
FALLING ASLEEP TO THE SOUND OF EXPLOSIONS
HOPING THIS MISERY WON’T LAST
WAKING UP TO DUSTY RUINS
FALLING ASLEEP TO ACHING WOUNDS
HOPING THIS DAY WILL BE YOUR LAST

WHEN IT SEEMS LIKE PEACE IS COMING ‘ROUND
WHEN IT FEELS ABOUT TO BE SAFE AND SOUN
EVERYTHING IS SHAKEN DOWN - DOWN TO THE GROUND
NOTHING TO DO OR TO UNDERSTAND
NO LUCK NO CHANCE NO HELPING HANDS
WHEN YOU’RE BORN ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ISLAND

WAKING UP TO THE SOUND OF GUNS
FALLING ASLEEP TO THE SOUND OF EXPLOSIONS
HOPING THIS MISERY WON’T LAST
WAKING UP TO DUSTY RUINS
FALLING ASLEEP TO ACHING WOUNDS
HOPING THIS DAY WILL BE YOUR LAST

WHEN IT SEEMS LIKE PEACE IS COMING ‘ROUND
WHEN IT FEELS ABOUT TO BE SAFE AND SOUN
EVERYTHING IS SHAKEN DOWN - DOWN TO THE GROUND
NOTHING TO DO OR TO UNDERSTAND
NO LUCK NO CHANCE NO HELPING HANDS
WHEN YOU’RE BORN ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ISLAND
Track Name: Life Is A Bitch
Working nine to five trying to make ends meet
i’ve had my share of school days
in hopes to live a modest life where everything’s ok.

My girl - my friends - my music - i’ve got everything i need
still i find it so pathetic the way we’re all
racing through our lives always picking up the speed.

Life’s a fucking bitch - you live - you die - get used to it
you grow old - you get sick and some are gone before you know it.
Life’s a fucking whore - it will screw you through the back door
bring it on - this ship has long sailed offshore.

Now we’re looking a few years back when we stood for revolution.
No matter what they told us there was no solution.
We we’re never to let go - to give up or to step back.

Time has finally caught up with us
disillusion and despair
we slowly lowered our angry fists
i guess you could say we finally came to our senses and we realized that...

Life’s a fucking bitch - you live - you die - get used to it
you grow old - you get sick and some are gone before you know it.
Life’s a fucking whore - it will screw you through the back door
bring it on - this ship has long sailed offshore.

You grow old - you get sick - you live - you die - get used to it.
You grow old - you get sick - you live - you die - get used to it.
You grow old - you get sick and that's a load of fucking bullshit.

Life’s a fucking whore - it will screw you through the back door
bring it on - this ship has long sailed offshore.

Life’s a fucking bitch - you live - you die - get used to it
you grow old - you get sick - this ship has long sailed offshore
Track Name: Cowards
Looking at a world where cowards
are crowned and greeted power.
Living inside-out and backwards
spending precious hours
screwing fancy whores
while the rest of these people are waiting to go down.

Looking at a peaceful sunset
and hope for a better tomorrow.
A day without fear of death threats
corruption and tears of sorrow.
Lives across the ocean are constantly ruined and demolished without a sound.

Trying hard to live honestly but little do we know
about certain third world country leaders on the down-low
smoking big cigars while the rest of these people are waiting to go down.

They’re lied to while dying in the hands of political criminals.
They’re lied to while dying in the hands of political criminals.
So immoral - so unethical.

Trying hard to live honestly but little do we know
about certain third world country leaders on the down-low
smoking big cigars while the rest of these people are waiting to go down.

Looking at the situation - human rights violation.
The chiefs are out gambling donations
handed out by the united nations.
Wasting millions while the rest of their people are waiting and ready to go down.

They’re lied to while dying in the hands of political criminals.
They’re lied to while dying in the hands of political criminals.
So immoral - so unethical.

Trying hard to live an honest life seems so ironical.
I swear I’ll be trying hard to live as honest and as honorable without losing hope, it’s blunt and so ironical.
Track Name: Outside The Box
it’s just not fair nor square
the game has changed but the rules remained the same
and these days are worsening.

It’s just not right nor justified
some people should be paying for their crimes
that’s right - some people should be punished and serve some time.

We’re on the wrong side of the cutting-edge and we’re starting to lose our grip.

She can’t eat - can’t sleep - she’s losing the pace
after losing the kid she was meant to raise
i can’t believe we’ve actually come to this.

How many kids will die from psychopaths
getting off on webcam suicide, that’s right
how many before we open up our eyes?

We’re on the wrong side of the cutting-edge and my fingers have started to slip.

She can’t eat - can’t sleep - she’s losing the pace
after losing the kid she was meant to raise
i can’t believe we’ve actually come to this.

It’s too late to wait for the answers to come
sometimes you gotta think outside the box
i can’t believe we’ve actually come to this.

How can they sit there and be told this is way to unusual?
You make the rules so you should know it’s gotten out of control!
This is getting way out of control

She can’t eat - can’t sleep - she’s losing the pace
after losing the kid she was meant to raise
i can’t believe we’ve actually come to this.

It’s too late to wait for the answers to come
sometimes you gotta think outside the box
i can’t believe we’ve actually come to this.
This is getting way out of control!
