Nothing To Gain
He wasn't sad, he wasn't unhappy, just unfulfilled, an ill-spent life wasting away. Days turned to weeks turned to years, He had to make a change. He said,
"I'm going away, And you may never see the likes of me again. I need to find a place I can call my home. Staying here, I've nothing to gain."
So he set his sights on moving on. The first step would be hard, the journey would be long. He had to try, even if it all came out wrong in the end.
The future has no guarantee. You must fight to become what you want to be. Inaction only breeds complacency. Any change could be a victory.
He packed his belongings and tried to be strong. The first step was hard, and the journey was long. Her tears fell like rain, with his voice like a song in her head...


No Way Out
Painted myself into a corner, once again. Sacrifice was supposed to serve as a means to an end, But all that remains is an untrusting soul, Jaded, no wiser, with nothing to show For the years I have spent, caging myself in. There's no way out.
Told my mother and father that I'd try to make them proud. Told myself that giving up would not be allowed. I put in my time, and I gave it my all, But with faulty foundations, a structure will fall, Trapping those left inside under mountains of debris... There's no way out.
Panic sets in once you realize There's nothing left for you. Every decision that you've ever made Is coming back to haunt you, The future's in doubt, There's no way out.
This pit just keeps getting deeper, yet I still dig. Steadily setting off fires as I cross this bridge. When finally I stand on the opposite shore, This island my prison til I breathe no more, And my dead body lies, buried six feet deep, There's no way out.

End Up Here
Woke up in the van, half-drunk again, It must have been a Saturday night. A knock on the door and a flashlight beam, Asking me about a fight.
Aint doing nothing, trying to get a few hours sleep Cops are on our tail, we might spend the night in jail, And I wonder how the hell we end up here.
Highs and the lows, a couple hundred shows, It's funny how the years fly by.
Holes in the sail, we're destined to fail, But we're still aiming for the sky.
We're going nowhere, always wind up back where we begin. Another round of beer, another day, another year, And I wonder how the hell we end up here.
Wake up! It's time to go! We're late for another show.

Somehow went somewhere, drunk in a town and I can't pronounce it's name. Another round of beer, another day, another year, And I wonder how the hell we end up here.

Static On The Radio
With stolen frequency, we've got rebel soul. We're coming through like static on the radio, So tap the wire, and share the alienation. I was voiceless in a dream until I woke up screaming, calling your name.
(And they interrupt, constantly this broken song we sing)
Ain't no use in you sitting idly by, While you're watching all the days of your life pass by, Sitting around, thinking about, thinking about better times.
(But they just can't stop us from talking on this rebel frequency)
It's your life, boy, you know you got to take it. That's the only way you're ever gonna break it down. And life begins today.
Dizzy hearts tonight will find the way to go. We're coming through like static on the radio. If you're on fire, then join this alienation. I was voiceless in a dream until I woke up screaming, calling your name.
(And they interrupt, constantly this broken song we sing)
Ain't no use in you sitting idly by, While you're watching all the days of your life pass by, Sitting around, thinking about, thinking about better times.
(But they just can't stop us from talking on this rebel frequency)
It's your life, girl, you know you got to take it. That's the only way you're ever gonna break it down.
And life begins today.
Don't let it slip away.

Stranglehold
All these years you've caused us pain, So many lives under control.
But now you've gotten greedy, pulled too hard on the reins, Payback unavoidable.
We won't take this one lying down (Stand up! Make them pay!) Change begins today.
You've had us too long in a stranglehold, The pendulum is swinging 'round.
Your grip is slipping, this bomb is steady ticking, Time is running out.
Falling stocks and private planes, Bailout non-recoupable.
Unified rebellion coursing through these veins Your terms are unacceptable.
We won't take this one lying down (Stand up! Make them pay!) Change begins today.
You've had us too long in a stranglehold, The pendulum is swinging 'round.
Your grip is slipping, this bomb is steady ticking, Time is running out.
Too big to fail... Accountability, responsibility Should be in jail...


It’s Going Down...
It's going down... There is panic in the marketplace. It's going down... Checkered flag for the human race.
Fall to your knees, you can't stop this disease from spreading 'round, It's going down...
It's going down... Take a look and see what we've become. It's going down... This is something that you can't outrun.
All you have today will soon be gone away, and never found. It's going down...
Fall to your knees, you can't stop this disease. Full speed ahead! We'll run this sinking ship into the ground.
It's going down... We were warned, but we did not heed. It's going down... Direct result of our foolish greed.
Should be no surprise. Open up your eyes And look around. It's going down...
It's going down... Now it's too late to do anything. It's going down.... Soon arrives a day of reckoning.
Give a last embrace. Same scene, every place, In every town. It's going down...
Fall to your knees, you can't stop this disease. Strike up a match. We'll burn this motherfucker to the ground.
It's going down...

Keep on marching, the war is not over.
The enemy has remained strong.
Lay down your arms, accept surrender. (or)
Stand up and fight! To victory!
Get back up. Keep moving forward, forward.

Throw in the towel, we'll never make it.
Lack of morale is crippling.
Success or utter failure,
The future's yours to tailor.

Lay down your arms, accept surrender.
Stand up and fight! To victory!
Success or disappointment,
You get just what you wanted.
