Track Name: FRINGE OPERATION
You've got me by the neck
You want me to believe you
But that is something that I swore that I would never do

I'm eating what I want
I'm drinking what I feel
You should consider that I'm human and my life is real

How does it feel?!?

You're treating me like shit
So, that's how I'll treat you back
The daily routine of your mouth is gonna get you smacked

Why do you even care what I do with myself?
Your sense of humor is gonna leave you lost with no one else

No one else!!!

SHUT UP
DON'T TALK
JUST TURN AROUND AND WALK

You've got me by the neck
You want me to believe you
But that is something that I swore that I would never do

I'm eating what I want
I'm drinking what I feel
You should consider that I'm human and my life is real

How does it feel?!?

SHUT UP
DON'T TALK
JUST TURN AROUND AND WALK

TURN AND WALK!

You've got me by the neck
You want me to believe you
But that is something that I swore that I would never do

Why do you even care what I do with myself?
Your sense of humor is gonna leave you lost with no one else

No one else!!!

SHUT UP
DON'T TALK
JUST TURN AROUND AND WALK
Track Name: BRAIN CLOUD
All things are crazy and all things are weird
With an ego of emotions and a room that's filled with fear
Whiny, complaining and right up in your face
Getting closer by the second so you get the same taste

I'm up all through the night
My sweaty bed is right
I'll never sleep the same again
I'm always thinking of it
Will it come today?
Or, will it get away?
I haven't punched my ticket yet
Get ready, here we go!

I don't want to live my life this way
NO!
I don't want to live my life this way
NO!
I don't want to be a number or a secret code
NO!
I don't want to live my life this way

It's all about the heart
With it you cannot part
It all depends on how we live
Standing or on your knees, man!
This life is out of sight
Potential dynamite
That endless void is gonna wake us in our beds all screaming!!

I don't want to live my life this way
NO!
I don't want to live my life this way
NO!
I don't want to be a number or a secret code
NO!
I don't want to live my life this way

All things are crazy and all things are weird
With an ego of emotions and a room that's filled with fear
Whiny, complaining and right up in your face
Getting closer by the second so I get the same taste

I don't want to live my life this way
NO!
I don't want to live my life this way
NO!
I don't want to be a number or a secret code
NO!
I don't want to live my life this way
Track Name: A BITTER, SWEET, SAD TUNE
I sit alone and scrape the walls with my eyes in a daze
I wonder and I dream about escaping from this maze
As days go by, I watch time fly
A bitter, sweet, sad tune
I take a step from the muddy ground into my boring room

Super inhibitions of a time when all that isn't can't come true
The cheap escape is second rate
When my time comes, I won't hesitate to say goodbye to everything and anything I know

I drink a beer, get filled with cheer until I hit the floor
Now I'm passed out; open my mouth in order to pour more
The room, it spins inside my head
But I won't drink and drive
Another value left to learn, in order to survive

Super inhibitions of a time when all that isn't can't come true
The cheap escape is second rate
When my time comes, I won't hesitate to say goodbye to everything and anything I know

Bitch slap
Have respect
People never look within the skull
Language is now but a fad
Conversation is void and null
Smile awhile and simmer down, because a frown is hard to work
Progression of aggression is a trend of mass obsession
Going down into the ground with everything and anything I know!
Track Name: BREAKFAST IN A COFFEE CUP
I walk in with my own cup
It's my only pick-me-up
And the sugar is so sweet
I drink that shit eight days a week

It's a part of everyday life
I drink from the mug that's filled by you
So, keep it on and don't run out
It's breakfast, lunch and supper, too
Any day and any way, I'll find you and I'll ask for more
So, support my addiction
Give me coffee
Here's your tip, I'm out the door

Now, we'll never give it up
We pay homage to the cup
Carve my name into the seat
Beer and coffee can't be beat

It's a part of everyday life
I drink from the mug that's filled by you
So, keep it on and don't run out
It's breakfast, lunch and supper, too
Any day and any way, I'll find you and I'll ask for more
So, support my addiction
Give me coffee
Here's your tip, I'm out the door

[spoken]
Yeah, I've been waiting forty-five minutes for a refill on my coffee
Flo's over there tellin' me to kiss her grits and I'm like, "fuck you, Flo!"
I expect my coffee to be refilled five fuckin' times in ten minutes
Ya know, I drink my coffee like water
Give me some fuckin' coffee!!

THIS SHIT DRIVES ME INSANE!
It's a part of everyday life
I drink from the mug that's filled by you
So, keep it on and don't run out
It's breakfast, lunch and supper, too
Any day and any way, I'll find you and I'll ask for more
So, support my addiction
Give me coffee
Here's your tip, I'm out the door
Track Name: UNACCEPTANCE
The ending of another day
I watch the time decay
Aggression coming through
Intense, unconscious moves

I don't even know you

Come and take me
But don't wake me
I'm at my peace when I'm in sleep

All of it's true, it's not just you
It's all you see on your T.V.
Why can't we say, "it's all okay?"
Living in health, being ourselves

Accepting the reality
But not what you can't see
Not a good thing to do, when death is taking you

I don't even know you

Come and take me
But don't wake me
I'm at my peace when I'm in sleep

All of it's true, it's not just you
It's all you see on your T.V.
Why can't we say, "it's all okay?"
Living in health, being OURSELVES
Track Name: INSUBORDINATION
I just might be a jerk, but I don't mind
How I act is up to me and that's just fine
Sick, sick
Fill the bowl, but not too much
Just hanging out with my brain, numb to the touch

I do it over again
I know I'll never win
No fun, no fun
We're not together, so...

I hold onto the edge, but I'm breaking down
Jump the gun, eat all the food, sleep on the ground
Wreak havoc in the street at A-25
Six hundred bucks of damage done, but I'm still alive

I do it over again
I know I'll never win
No fun, no fun
We're not together, so...

FUCK YOU!
That's what I said
SHUT UP!
Shut up your head

I just might be a jerk, but I don't mind
How I act is up to me and that's just fine
Sick, sick
Fill the bowl, but not too much
Just hanging out with my brain, numb to the touch

I'd do it over again
But I know I'll never win
No fun, no fun
We're not together, so...

FUCK YOU!
That's what I said
SHUT UP!
Shut up your head

I know things will be alright
INSUBORDINATION
Track Name: PUNKINHEAD
Kill indecision before I am gone
Paint my walls filthy with grey
Everyone's changing for better or worse
Make me sick, I must say...

Silence the minds of the avid unknown
I'm bored of the things I've heard about you
About you!!

Shut up already
I've heard way too much
She's used more than my old skateboard
She's feeling revealing
Her love I am stealing
Oh my, the things Mike would say

Silence the minds of the avid unknown
I'm bored of the things I've heard about you
About you!!
Track Name: VIBRANT, EXCITING, DIVERSE!
I don't believe in anything corrupted by The Man
Life for sale on QVC
Progression breaks the hand
You sorry sack, you should read braille
You're blind like a bat
Vampires drink the blood of greed, dipped in the corporate vat

Everyone is clothed with choice, filling out their own demands
They point the finger at beliefs and put me down without release
I run away, but they find me again

I won't let go - Back off of me
Hit my nerve - Makes me stronger
Brotherhood of my friends
Walking in the light of life

I change a lot - Every day
I distort the words they say
I can see what is real
I care all about creation now!!

louder, louder, you've got to speak louder
Louder, Louder, You've Got To Speak Louder
LOUDER, LOUDER, YOU'VE GOT TO SPEAK LOUDER
Track Name: THE GREAT TECHNOLOGY TAKEOVER
The honest man was working hard, devoted to the land
No information came to him and nothing else was said
He built his house with his two hands
No T.V. to be seen
No cars to run his children over
No money to be green

The world was slow

Blinded by progression, he began to make new toys
Jets and cars and trips to Mars and more machines of noise
Computers took his mind away and money took his soul
T.V. took imagination
The Weak lost all control of their reality

Technology taking over
Gonna take your life away
Technology run you over
Getting dumber every day

Now people think that it's okay, that's just the way it goes
Typing up their documents, stuck up their snotty nose
The faster something goes is the faster it will break
A new invention
Kill us all
Oops, now it's too late

The world was slow

Technology taking over
Gonna take your life away
Technology run you over
Getting dumber every day

Insight!!
