Let ’em Bleed

Perception can be a funny thing
It’s what helps us shape our beliefs
But how does it affect how you see me?
See them? See us? See anyone?

You let them bleed as if they need it
You drop them off wherever you see fit
Abuse them or dismiss them it’s whatever
Because they’re nobody compared to you

Take them all
If you can’t see their faces
Take them all
Destroy all their places

Take them all

Now you see I have to take issue
With the treatment and conditions they go through
Set for lives that have no direction
Safe for your just cause and execution

Take their eyes,
Take their hide
Distribute their bodies to all your friends
They are
Just nobodies that you can freely bend

Take them all
If you can’t see their faces
Take them all
Destroy all their places

Take them all

Kill your laws
Kill your party
Kill your self-righteous guilt

Kill your Church
Kill your God
Kill your justified sins

Kill your comfort
Kill your safety
Kill your sense of well being

After all, you don’t care as long as it’s someone else

Fuck your night club
Fuck your gun club
Fuck your damn country club

Fuck your car
Fuck your bar
Fuck your “fave TV star”

Fuck your fame
Fuck your game
Fuck your everything else

You can have your lives, but we will know your name

A nobody is not nobody

Take them all
If you can’t see their faces
Take them all
Destroy all their places

Take them all

A nobody is not nobody

Rocket Fuel

Rocket!
Burn!

Melting the metal
Burning the fuel
Send me up high
Send me up high
Fuck all your wants
We don’t need your sins
The sky’s the limit
So send me up high

We’ll just let them burn
Force their surrenders
Leave them in the cold
Because that’s where they belong

Leave us alone, can’t you see we’re busy
Annexing, annexing?
Get your high some other place
Can’t you see?

We’ll just let you burn
Force your surrender
Leave you in the cold
Because that’s where you belong

Rocket fuel
Give us the fire we need
Rocket fuel
When will we be set free?

So just burn!

Forget their delusion
We’ve reached a conclusion
Ignore their obtrusion
Let’s start some fucking fusion!

This is my time to shine
To take what is rightfully mine
Stars shine brightest at night
I was born to take this bitchin’ flight

Rocket fuel
Give us the fire we need
Rocket fuel
When will we be set free?

So just burn!

Eudaimonia

I like to go out people watching
And see the people do their people things
Women, men, and children gather outside
To experience life and take in the day
Longtime friends travel far to reconnect
And share their life stories over lunch
Heaven could be jealous of us on Earth
Because we seem to have it all

We live in a beautiful world
And It’s crazy that this all exists
I can’t imagine anything better than
This big rock that we travel on

But some think that we’re being watched
by the government, or aliens above
They might be jealous of us
Because of our valleys, mountains, and oceans

But jealousy it is not for you and me
We keep on breathing life into our lungs
We exhale the negativity and doubt
And make sure that your song is sung!

I like to go out people watching
And see the people do their people things
Women, men, and children gather outside
To experience life and take in the day
Longtime friends travel far to reconnect
And share their life stories over lunch
Heaven could be jealous of us on Earth
Because we seem to have it all

There can be pain
There can be loss
Suffering Exists
But I’ll take living life any day

There can be sorrow
There can be madness
There are bad people
But I smile, I cast it all away

Since we all live here, we work together
Try to improve our lives and become achievers
We share our passions and grow into great people
Learn to make beautiful art that we share

Mothers shape youth into strong individuals
People adapt past their disabilities
We are truly incredible creatures on this rock
Rock, Rock, Rock, YEAH

Have you ever seen anything better?
Reality crushes your fantasies any day
Just kiss someone, hug someone, you will see it
Close your eyes, and feel the collective strength

I like to go out people watching
And see the people do their people things
Women, men, and children gather outside
To experience life and take in the day
Longtime friends travel far to reconnect
And share their life stories over lunch
Heaven could be jealous of us on Earth
Because we seem to have it all

Hold On

Don’t do it
Just wait and see
The world is yours
There is more you can be
Though it looks hopeless
You just have to hold on
And we must try even if
One day we’ll be gone

Day by day
Things keep looking bleak
And we keep working every
Week after week
It’s hard to stop my heart
From being filled with hate
And death is looking like
The only escape

Stop!
Look around
Take in each day

Stop!
Never look back
Come what may

Heed my warning:
You must never give up
This life is hard work
It’s not just about luck
Let’s help each other
Together we’ll go far
But you must never
compromise who you are

Stop!
Look around
Take in each day

Stop!
Never look back
Come what may

Time after time
We must all face defeat
Might take some hits
But I can’t miss this beat
I don’t wanna quit
I have so much to give
So stand up with me and shout
I WANT TO LIVE

Stop!
Look around
Take in each day

Stop!
Never look back
Come what may

Hard Times

Wake up!
Come on out and watch the streets
Can you feel the heat on the back of your neck?
The Yogis marching to the Pope Joan beat
Ready to heal the world from the wreck

Come on!
Look around and see there ain’t much left
Civilizations have been reduced to dust
People vulnerable to violent threats
Lost in a world that’s lost all it’s trust

No!
Trust!

No!
Shame!

Don’t hide!
We have lived through hard times
They seek to rid us from our fucking homes
How have we ignored all the signs?
They think we’re as useful as garden gnomes

Mistrust!
How can we trust those who steal
We have been blinded, misguided, left for dead
Land lay bear no more crops on the field
Innocents shot, now our seas run red

No!
Trust!

No!
Shame!

Why hate?
Why burn?
Why can’t we just learn?
The end
Is nigh
Maybe
That’s why?

No!
Trust!

No!
Shame!

No…

Reaper

Trust your senses
Ignore your fears
Reach a consensus
Work through the years

Because if we don’t try
We’re doomed, we’ll disappear
So don’t just let us fry
Lend us your ears

Time:
It just flies
Don’t wait
Till you die

Today is your day
You must grab hold
Just know it’s ok
To grow and mold

The choice is yours to make
Who are you gonna be?
No matter which you take
The path’s for you to see!

Time:
It just flies
Don’t wait
Till you die

The clock is ticking
While we keep kicking
We’ve got no clout
We’re full of doubt
Yeah, and our time is running out

Don’t wanna talk about it
Don’t wanna think about it
The reaper’s coming for you

Trailblazer

Riding downtown and we got no gas
Drinking too much, driving much too fast
You were my first and we had a good time
But all good things reach the end of the line

Yeah, you were a trailblazer
They said, “Boy, you’ll replace her”
You’ll find another
That will take you home to mother
You lead the way
Made me the king of the highway
Yeah, you taught me
What it means to be free

Learning the ropes was no easy task
But you made it so all I had to do was ask
When the time came and you needed something new,
You made the choice, you said goodbye to me too

Yeah, you were a trailblazer
They said, “Boy, you’ll replace her”
You’ll find another
That will take you home to mother
You lead the way
Made me the king of the highway
Yeah, you taught me
What it means to be free

Do you remember that time
When we almost broke apart?
But you didn’t give up,
Didn’t let me lose heart

And do you recall when
We almost lost our lives?
Going too fast
On this most joyful joyride

Yeah, you were a trailblazer
They said, “Boy, you’ll replace her”
You’ll find another
That will take you home to mother
You lead the way
Made me the king of the highway
Yeah, you taught me
What it means to be free

Beside You

When we first met
We were only young kids then
We had so much to learn
It was only a matter of when
The paths of life would take us
Down roads we never knew
Ups, downs, navigating curves,
And they all lead back to you

Even though I’m confident
That you and I will make it through anything
Of all the times that we have spent
There’s not a moment I take for granted
There may be times full of doubt
When we’re not so sure of what we can do
But if there’s one thing I can be sure of
It’s that I’ll be right there beside you

And I know
You’re gonna be beside me too
Because I know
That’s how it’s always been with you
I said yeah, I know
You’re gonna be beside me too
Because you know
I’ll always be there for you

Wherever you are
Whenever you need me
There’s no distance too far
I’ll be there beside you

And I know
You’re gonna be beside me too
Because I know
That’s how it’s always been with you
I said yeah, I know
You’re gonna be beside me too
Because you know
I’ll always be there for you

Beside You

Sit Back Relax

I’m here to piss you off
I’m here to make you cry
We’re all so lost now
And we have no idea why
To find the answers
You need to look inside of yourselves
Supplement your mind
Pull a book down from that shelf

Sit back and relax now,
While we fast forward 1,000 years.
All our worries and problems are gone,
We can all stop living in fear.
But now wait just a minute,
You know that’s only cause we’ll be dead?
The future is in our hands
And to prosper we must use our heads

Just give me one more day to work
(But I’m behind on everything, can’t figure out what to do)
I don’t need your praise, just hear me out.
(Yet your love is the currency we need to get our messages through)

Quite often I wonder,
what if this really isn’t for me?
Well, the doubt doesn’t scare me
I always knew who I wanted to be
But still, I’ve been having a hard time
figuring out where I really belong
Small victories help me
like finding the words I need for this song

I’m shouting out to the world
things that nobody’s wanting to hear
Part of me would just rather sit back
relax, fade away, disappear
Finding it hard to accept an existence
In a world that just wants clicks and plays
Everyone’s trying to get their shit heard they forgot they had something to say

Just give me one more day to work
(But I’m behind on everything, can’t figure out what to do)
I don’t need your praise, just hear me out.
(Yet your love is the currency we need to get our messages through)

We are dust and ashes
We are nothing but grains of sand
We will make it together
For the world’s fate lies in our hands

We cannot not just sit back
While our voices have yet to be heard

We are dust and ashes
We are nothing but grains of sand
We will make it together
For the world’s fate lies in our hands

All We Can

Summon some courage, and bring out your grit
Fear has consumed you,
Which you won’t admit
You try to hide
Behind your faith

So life moves on but it’s much too fast
Entrenched in your ways, stuck in the past
Forget what you know
It’s time to let go

There’s no way to stop the flood from bursting out
The fear will spread and leave us all with doubt
So you must fight
For all your rights

Violent mentalities becoming greater
It’s common seeing fights erupt between neighbors
Will we unite?
Or set the world alight?

Nothing changes the outcome
There is no good solution
So that when my time comes, remember
All that you can from me!

Memories are all that we’ve got
Life is just an experience
So cherish all those precious moments
And learn from all the worst

Nothing we do will affect the cosmos
But don’t you worry, ahi vamos!
Be free from within,
Go chase the wind

Human expansion will carry a great cost
With no way to replace all that we lost
But we will try
Do all we can

Nothing changes the outcome
There is no good solution
So that when my time comes, remember
All that you can from me!

Memories are all that we’ve got
Life is just an experience
So, cherish all those precious moments
And learn from all the worst

Nothing changes the outcome
There is no good solution
So that when my time comes, remember
All that you can from me!

Memories are all that we’ve got
Life is just an experience
So, cherish all those precious moments
And learn from all the worst

Do all we can

Prime Time

I have gone numb
From the sounds
And the lights
On the tv

It takes away
All the pain
All the noise
All the feelings

It don’t defy
Don’t deny
It gives in
To all my needs

I must go on
Must become
Must escape
Can you see me?

Waiting to see what is next
“Reality,” violence, and sex
It’s all the same
Glory and fame
Prime time is calling your name

All my idols
And my gods
Are behind
The glass screen

Please tell me what
I need now
Need to know
Where to find it

Rage fills my heart
Doors slammed shut
In my face
Am I not real?

Lights on my face
Bloody hands
Burning car
Look at me now

Waiting to see what is next
“Reality,” violence, and sex
It’s all the same
Glory and fame
Prime time is calling your name

Everyone’s talking about prime time tv
8 to 10 PM you know you’ll be entertained
They know what it is you REALLY want to see
Just as long as you don’t want to use your brain

Everybody wants their 15 minutes
Ain’t nobody who don’t want to be adored
Everybody wants to be right in it
And we all gotta have the last word

Prime time
Tonight
Kill time
Every night
Prime time
Of your life
Your time
to die!

SULK

Manic Daydream:
Money to burn
Open road
Read and you’ll yearn

Your clock your time and then
Now it’s your turn

Daylight moon
Shines in the sky
We stay down here
Knowing we’ll die

We forget what we’ve learned
Instead believing each lie

I don’t have stars in my eyes
I have galaxies
An infinite sprawl of celestial
Majesties

Dancing airwaves
Broadcast your doom
Dazed and confused
You lie in a room

You thought it was your home
Now it’s your tomb

Television
Cerebral cesspool
Replacing what’s true
With what sounds cool

Staring at the screen
Down runs the drool

I don’t have stars in my eyes
I have galaxies
An infinite sprawl of celestial
Majesties

Choose your own path

Magic 8 ball
What do you see?
Transcend time and space
Look into me

Doesn’t matter though
I believe in me!

I don’t have stars in my eyes
I have galaxies
An infinite sprawl of celestial
Majesties

Choose your own path
