Track Name: Where I'm Going
I sit here thinking back on cigarettes and honey jack
and my failed attack on our machine
to cope with the apathy
can't you see it's killing me
the copulating rotting caress
of the american dream

I hope it don't come to own me
won't somebody show me
Where I'm going

Would I rather build a picket fence
or a picket line
Protest the offences or
keep going on fine
war torn country
why the hell should I care?
If its not here someone else is dying somewhere

I hope it don't come to own me
won't somebody show me
Where I'm going
Track Name: Dishpit Blues
I'll wash plate wash a bowl
wash it all in my dish hole
wash it till the very day I die

Don't you know i got them mean mean low down soggy dishpit blues
Don't you know i got them mean mean low down soggy dishpit blues

I'll wash a dog wash a cat don't you know the dishpit''s where it's at
wash em till the very day I die

wash a pan wash a pot they come out clean more often then not
wash em till the very day I die

Don't you know i got them mean mean low down soggy dishpit blues
Don't you know i got them mean mean low down soggy dishpit blues
Track Name: Eulogy for the Common Man
Sequestering sycophants and selling their souls
brain washing marauding and stirring the coals
the old has just rendered a hole in the new
taken it all for the new lucky few

his eyes are all glassy as he steps to the street
raping and killing his family will eat
he knows it is wrong but keeps moving along
others misfortune helps him sing his song

He laughs in the faces of the broken and bruised
although in his heart he knows he's misused
a screw on a cog bolts inside a machine
laundering lifetime the money is clean

the demon inside him urges him on
he wages a war but all his strength is gone
he searches for hope but he finds nothing there
he steps off the stool and falls into thin air

this is my story it is your song
it's written by no one the words are all wrong
my soul is a cesspool but no one can tell that
if this is life then i sure welcome hell.
Track Name: Skateboarding
the only thing that concrete is good for is skateboarding
no cars no trucks no trains
just for urethane keeps me sane
Track Name: Cut the Tie
every time i see your face it makes me want to die
every time i hear your laugh i hang my head and cry
it's been so long since i been gone this love that i have lost
since the day you walked away and turned right into frost

but i know it''s been a long time since you and i first cut our ties

my tattered hearts been torn apart by those i cannot stand
i'm a martyr in the matrix i've been banished from the land
like the one inside the theater whose heart it has been shot
slowly sink into the sand the one's that been forgot

i'm a cog inside an iron lung whose gears they have been jammed
feeding fingers to a starving dog right from the masters hand
i'm nothing but a little boy that's got a broken heart
its not new it's something that we new right from the fucking start

and my eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the lord
he hath loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword
in the darkness of his heavens with his minions may they rot
it's a sinister solution to the one i should have fought
Track Name: Plastic Plague
we're the murders of the machine
thee doomed dinosaurs of iron
they choke out all of our dreams
leaving nightmares for us to lead
Plastic plague

when you wake to a shrouded brown sky
with mushroom clouds and toxic smoke in your eyes
it is terrifying we dispise
Plastic plague

why do the powers at be always Bogart all the free and clean energy
they trade it for coal and dead dinosaurs
and deaf ears to fall on our pleas.

ignite
God damn their eyes
