Track Name: Outta Conttrol
It takes a little effort to leave it all behind
the fears of what'll happen and what you'll do next time
and if your self esteem is insulation from insult to injury congratulations
whether seen objectively whether seen subjectively try not to see myopically all join in all join in

yo we're outta control
yo outta control
take the passion in your essence and let it flow
act out! Act outta control

maybe you've got firewalls maybe you've got fuckin' balls
our pain is palpable oh yeah we're capable convert it into damaged infrastructure
no more the shrinking violet let fun and anger be your pilot
It's a human escape experience we all feel it we all need it we're all itchin' for happy action instant reaction intense attraction act out distraction never the river in your way horse or boat or swim

yo we're outta control
yo we're outta control
you'll fit right in whether you want to or not
act out! Act outta control
outta control! Outta control!

you've got about 10 seconds to be just a smidge vicious to join my way patrol to go all in out of control
time!

yo we're outta control
yo outta control
take the passion in your essence and let it flow
act out! Act outta control
outta control! Outta control!
Act out! outta control yo we're outta control
we're all over we're all in
act out! Act out! Act out! Act outta control
Track Name: Life's A Riot
they throw out apathy
that all we do is shout and scream
would you sacrifice everything you love for a social experiment well
we're prone to judgment
yet we all have to live
what choice do we have than to just be ourselves

it's easy to convince yourself your actions are right
it's hard to try try for a better life
hey life's a riot
go on ignite it
light up our life

it isn't simple
no one speaks for everyone
there's always room for exception and interpretation
along with consciousness integrity should be integral
it's a lonely universe and we're all we have

it's easy to convince yourself your actions are right
it's hard to try try for a better life
hey life's a riot
go on ignite it
light up our life

hey life's a riot
you want it you grab it
hey life's a riot
riot riot riot riot!
hey life's a riot man yeah
hey life's a riot
go on ignite it
light up our life
Track Name: They Say
last night as I lay in my bed I dreamt I could solve my problems
I dreamt I met up with old friends and put an end to a few isms

they say they say nothin' really matters anyway
they say we don't give a fuck about today

I've a feelin' that all of my true friends never really belonged in this world even when we're surrounded by perfect family friends and lovers we're ever alone

they say they say nothin' really matters anyway
they say we don't give a fuck about today
they say nothin' really matters anyway
they say we don't give a fuck about today
Track Name: They Won't Get Us
when you come through the door close it quick don't let the draft come in
you gotta take your place with willin' minds
with bullets in your gun and killin' on your mind

you won't get me- if I wanted to kill
you won't get me- it wouldn't be someone I didn't know
you won't get me- it would be someone like you
that wants to hurt others

if you can't convince us don't resist us don't even try
you better take your place with willin' minds
with bullets in your gun and killin' on your mind

you won't get me- if I wanted to kill
you won't get me- it wouldn't be someone I didn't know
you won't get me- it would be someone like you
that wants to hurt others
think about it man

you won't get me you won't get him
think about it man
where do you stand

you won't get me- if I wanted to kill
you won't get me- it wouldn't be someone I didn't know
you won't get me- it would be someone like you
that wants to hurt others
think about it man

you won't get me you won't get him
think about it man
where do you stand
you won't get me you won't get him
think about it man
where do you stand
the time to stand up is right now
Track Name: Make It Your Day
fresh out of university straight into multiversity a fan of malt diversity
a fan of the beer
who is the multi-million anchor of civilization
who is the microphone complex why ask?

they want us to say there's no other way black or white there's no gray
okay make it your day

generally generous all but all obedient
all but all obedient all but genuine
as the waves of ignorance travel swiftly towards the shore
we will not take shelter no! Stare slack-jawed at the storm

they want us to say there's no other way dark or light a glimmer
okay make it your day

they want us to say there's no other fuckin' way but dark light or gray there's always a way
okay make it your day
a fan of malt diversity
Track Name: It's Been A Cwazy Week Weatherwise
it's been a crazy week weatherwise
the pretentious poetry of muddy soles and cracked concrete
if Moses were here to help today we'd not need him to part a sea
we'd ask him simply to plant a tree

I have deep affection for the people
A Most Fortuitous Method tune in tune up
are you ready to admit it when you didn't invent it
through diamond hail we'll lift the veil
poets...they can't do shit

it's been a crazy week weatherwise or not Cockrates has the litmus test and a studded vest
there's rumours in the form of rotting breath
you cowboys all sit tight there's a weekend every week
and don't use meth

I have deep affection for the people
A Most Fortuitous Method tune in tune up
are you ready to admit it when you didn't invent it
through diamond hail we'll lift the veil
poets...they can't do shit

there's nothin' gained with unlearning
circumcising reason trimming brain fat that you need
on the other hand maybe unlearning is what we all really need

I have deep affection for the people
A Most Fortuitous Method tune in tune up
are you ready to admit it when you didn't invent it
through diamond hail we'll lift the veil
poets...they can't do shit
are you ready? Yeah!!!!
Are you ready? Fuck yeah!!!!
Are you ready are you ready are you ready...
through diamond hail we'll lift the veil
veil!
Track Name: Contemporary Charismatic Criminals
are you happy with the state of things
the condition of the state
come hate filled magistrate
seeming pious secretly profligate
when the noose is fashionable
rationalize you're rational
accept the national national
characteristic of kill and then pose as the dove

contemporary- the outlaw revised
contemporary- the pre-despised
contemporary- soon to be chastised
the flavor of the meek

if you learn to love what you fear
is there some kind of shelter there
to keep us warm when feeling bare
awning

contemporary charismatic criminals
contemporary!

all repeat
sympathetic crook of the week
come run with me
bankrobber fantasy
planting the seed for the next Halloween

contemporary charismatic criminals
Hollywood gangsters
likable predators
no regard for human life
clown faced killer
contemporary charismatic criminals
contemporary!
Track Name: Blood City
Well it's the best the worst
you get what you pay for in the world of scrapin' teeth
you got the look the beat the heat of the city
but your heart mirrors the concrete

your love impossible
you're love impossible

and it's just another heartbreak in the city of blood
just another heartbreak in the city

well there's a knife a kid a chase begins and ends in county jail
a trail of wet fresh blood and broken glass and where were you when I was there
Track Name: You Are The Program
down one street and back again avoidin' the same ol' same again
took another route from the apartment the one 'round the corner from the convent the best of Brooklyn liquor stores they come from miles by the score to save themselves that fifteen cents next door to the convent

big city go away
big city go away I tell ya
big city go away I tell ya
big city go away
I tell ya go away big city

I want to stay where I am I want big city to go away go out in the big big city with few few dwellers feel no pity I I wanna go to the city but I want it to go away for me I can make the city change

you know the process
all too well it seems
you know the process
and you know you put the pro in processing
you are the program
I'm not programming
Track Name: Mind Games
there it is you're hangin' out drinkin' porter and havin' fun
now there are rats in your brain and traps in your mind
and you're wound up like a loaded gun
but when those rats escape those traps you've set
then it's aw what the hell don't listen to the conscience in your head
now that's all that's left like a chemistry set your body and your mind have switched over

and if you want it - if you want it
and you need it - and you need it
then you're gonna have to get it from him
but when it hits your face like a thousand bricks
you'll have to look to yourself instead

one track mind games mind games - oh no!
withdrawing all the care in the world - torture
one track mind games mind games - oh no!
withdrawing all the care at all torture

and if you want it - if you want it
and you need it - and you need it
then you're gonna have to get it from him
but when it hits your face like a thousand bricks you'll have to look to yourself instead 'cause...

one track mind games mind games - oh no!
withdrawing all the care in the world - torture
yeah one track mind games mind games - oh no!
withdrawing all the care at all torture

and if you want it - if you want it
and you need it - and you need it
then you're gonna have to get it from him
but when it hits your face like a thousand bricks you'll have to look to yourself instead
Track Name: The Shotcaller
it was a difficult time alright transitioning from east coast time attempting transcendence of a troubled mind
open the paper for a show to find
Pogues back to back for two nights lose myself in Las Vegas lights
I said that's a cool shirt tall tall man he said my name is Mike that's my band so I told him my favorite song is...

waiting in the wings waiting in the wings waiting in the wings

he is the shotcaller probably be a good basketballer
all you gotta know is don't cut him off nothin' can stop him not afraid of the law
and if there's a door between ya be it wooden or glass or police
he'll run it down burn cops it'll take a few to bring him down
all the while singin'...

waiting in the wings waiting in the wings waiting in the wings

let's be real here's the deal I know what I want I know what I feel
the band can't drive their van red wine and Jack Daniels
if you happened to be there we had a blast if not then we don't care
make it your day up the decival lebels if you've had it up to here
go replace those strings keep on playin' keep on writin' songs like...

waiting in the wings waiting in the wings waiting in the wings

we don't wanna getcha kick kicked outta the Timbers
but what you gonna do when you can't get in your room hey!
Hey Kimm mail the jacket keep kickin' up the racket
and no matter where you play make sure that you come back this way and do...

waiting in the wings waiting in the wings waiting in the wings
Track Name: Rollercoaster
sometimes I'm a rollercoaster
sometimes I can be mean
sometimes I transcend stress and worry
sometimes I'm sweet
sometimes in the morning I feel like I might throw up
but then I throw on some music
and the cheer it brings me can't be topped

sometimes I'm a rollercoaster
up and down
up and down up and down up and down

one time when it was rainin'
rainin' on my clothes
I ran outta money I nearly ran outta hope
that time wasn't funny that day wasn't fun
I passed out in the starbucks in downtown Brooklyn
oh Atlantic

sometimes I'm a rollercoaster
up and down
up and down up and down up and down

sometimes I can be mean to the girl of my dreams
sometimes she can't stand it but somehow forgives me
sometimes I have money sometimes I need a helpin' hand
sometimes the drinks are on me yeah empty cups 'til it's hard to stand ohhh

sometimes I'm a rollercoaster
up and down
up and down up and down up and down
