Track Name: War of 84
War of ‘84

Every channel, all you see
Is virtual reality

Big Brother’s watching you
Documenting every move
Try and fight
But there’s nothing you can do

There’s a camera on every street
Whole world knows what you had to eat

Big Brother’s closing in
It’s 1984 again
Try and fight
But you’re never gonna win

You Can’t Run.
You Can’t Hide.

Our Lives are Digitized

War of ‘84

Now it’s time to pull the plug
Addicted to another drug

Big Brother’s reign will end
As 1985 descends
Out from under
The microscopic lens

Track Name: Outta Time
Outta Time

Nobody knew a thing about me
Until that 4th of July
When I vanished off the face of the planet
Now everybody knows me as “That Guy”

Over the Mountains
Under the Sky
Each moment flashes by
Into outerspace
Outta time

Hit the wire with tires on fire
Then everything went Ice Cold
88 Miles per hour
Where we’re going we don’t need roads

Over the Mountains
Under the Sky
Each moment flashes by
Into the future
Seeing life
Fast Forward and Rewind
Sooner or Later
Outta time

Turn back the clocks
Tick tock tick tock
Switch on the flux
A Paradox

Don’t need to reverse the Earth
Or slingshot around the sun
Pick up the phone. Wait for the Tone
Reach out and touch someone

Outta time
Track Name: Jumped The Shark
Jumped The Shark

Futile Act. Desperation.
Ruining Reputations.
Took a risk. Swung and missed
Sleeping with the fishes, kehd!

Jumped The Shark

Raised the bar. St the pace
Till you fell flat on your face
Yesterdays. Passed your prime
Limp across the finish line.

Jumped The Shark

Used to kick the jukebox
With Chuck Taylor high tops
Now when everyone's having fun
You're the first one to dial 9-1-1

Lame.
Should be ashamed.
Get out the game.
Track Name: Old Friends Die Hard
OLD FRIENDS DIE HARD

People Come and Go
Sometimes they gotta leave
Can’t escape the Truth
And that’s What I believe
Hold onto your friends
And to your memories
That’s what loyalty Means

That’s why I tell myself, “It’s all in the Cards”
And old friends will always die hard
The ones that go can never come back
We suffer, that’s life, and it’s a cold hard fact

I got the good times locked in my mind
Couldn’t forget you if I even tried
It’s hard. I miss you. I always get by
Our brothers, Forever
You’re two of a kind

They broke the mold when they made your heart
This world couldn’t tear you apart
Forever True from the start

Old Friends Die Hard

I would spill my blood for you
I would stand and die for you
I would hold the knife for you
I would trade my life for you
Track Name: Battle of Hastings (bonus track)
Instrumental
Track Name: Paralyzed (bonus track)
PARALYZED
THINK OF A PLAN AND THEN MAKE YOUR MOVE
YOU MADE A MISTAKE. SO WHAT DO YOU DO?
YOU TURN FOR HELP, BUT YOU’VE BEEN SCREWED
AND WHAT YOU ONCE COUNT ON
YOU WILL LOSE
PARALYZED
YOU’RE PARALYZED FOR LIFE
VICTIMIZED
THREATENED BY YOUR MOVE
BLEEDING FROM PAINS AS THEY TURN TO RAGE
LIVING IN TROUBLE AS THEY CALL YOUR NAME
YOU WONDER WHAT’S REAL
BUT YOU’VE BEEN FRAMED
JUST ANOTHER PAWN IN THEIR FUCKING GAME
PARALYZED
YOU’RE PARALYZED FOR LIFE
VICTIMIZED
THREATENED BY YOUR MOVE
Track Name: Jerk Alert (bonus track)
JERK ALERT
YOU SCHMUCK. YOU FUCKED UP
I’M GONNA ESCAPE
THEY LOCKED ME UP CUZ THE MONEY WAS FAKE
MA’S IN THE JEEP. 4 WHEEL DRIVE
FEDERALE HOMICIDE
JERK ALERT
THIS AIN’T A HAIRPIECE THIS IS FOR REAL
O.R.V. WITH BULLET HOLES. IT WAS A STEAL
BROTHER’S AN ASSHOLE WITH PERFECT PITCH
LOVES PEPPERONI. SON OF A BITCH
JERK ALERT
NEVER SAY DIE
Track Name: Choking On Your Teeth (bonus track)
CHOKING ON YOUR TEETH
WHAT WENT WRONG
WITH THESE KIDS TODAY?
WHEN DID SHIT GET SO WEAK?
TALKING SHIT ABOUT BAND’S NAMES,
NEED A FEEDING TUBE TO EAT
INTERNERD DEPICTION OF
HOW THINGS OUGHTA BE
HIDING BEHIND A FUCKING SCREEN NAME
DOESN’T SOUND TOUGH TO ME
CHOKING ON YOUR TEETH
YOU’RE WEAK KID.
THAT’S ALL YOU’LL EVER BE
REMEMBER A TIME BACK IN THE DAY
WHEN MUSIC WAS ALL IT WAS ABOUT
NOW YOU’RE JUDGED
MORE ON YOUR GRAPHIC DESIGN
AND YOUR INSTAGRAM CLOUT
GOOD DAYS GONE
NOW WE’VE GOT
MASCARA WEARING DUDES
PLAYING HALF-ASSED METALCORE
TRYING TO LOOK CUTE.
CHOKING ON YOUR TEETH
YOU’RE WEAK KID.
THAT’S ALL YOU’LL EVER BE.
DON’T LIKE MY MUSIC
WATERED-DOWN OR ON TV
IT MAY IMPRESS THE LADIES
BUT IT DOESN’T FUCKING
IMPRESS CHEECH
GO AND START A BAND
WITH NO TALENT
AND SOME CATCHY BEATS
SUCK THE CORPORATE TEAT.
CHOKING ON YOUR TEETH
