Track Name: Waking Up from the American Dream
Peeling back the skin
Revealing bar-codes on every bone
Change the channel again
Recline back and let it go

Let it go

Lighting your cigars with the fire that burns our hopes and dreams
Take a number, wait in line for our new ropes and chains

Talk shows and limousines, Beamers on Wall Street
Strippers and champagne and hoookers and cocaine
But with you is your family on the cover of Forbes' magazine
Track Name: Kill Wall Street
Backwards flag, I think we're in distress
Corporate mags, I think this place is a mess
What to do, this country need's its fix
Super glue, I think I'll take a whiff

Corporate greed
Kill Wall Street

Golden arches but it's not heaven
Super sizes for your fries and organs
Chemicals, I think they're trying to poison
All of us but you're too dumb to notice

Corporate greed
Fuckin kill Wall Street

Millions of homeless
A battle that's endless
Why split the profits
When you can just kill them

Just kill them
Just kill us all
Just kill them
Just kill us all
Track Name: Capital Punishment
Sometimes it's way too hard to see
Through all the mirrors and make believe
But I guess we got to stand up on our own
I guess we're not allowed to breathe
And I'm going to start taking care of me
And I really don't care what side you're on

I don't care what your laws say
What's right is right every single day
We'll never get them to admit
That this is our capital punishment

Riots caused by incarceration
Of innocents all across the nation
Now they're making us out to be hypocrites
Open your eyes and shut your mouth
For once in your life don't shout about
'Cause it's awfully windy to take a piss

I think we've learned our lesson
Have you beaten your depression yet?
I think we've learned our lesson
Are you tired of being beaten?
Track Name: Counting Sheep
Is it a fact that we evolved from fish?
Should we listen or ignore this?
God fearing people in arguments
Who knows where we go when our time ends?

But who knows the truth?

Taking the time to take your life
With hands held high, clinching the knife
Who knows what could be worse
Than the first-world curse

The twins fell down and the nation mourned
The king spoke of how we all were torn
He said "Revenge is the ultimate score"
Just a disguise for a religious, oil war

A nations demise
Politicians lie
Broken mother's cry
'Cause sons and daughters die
Guns in hand
Boots in sand
Flattened land
By tyrannical man

Hush kid, daddy's coming home
Just forget everything he's done

Now soldier, try to sleep
(Go to sleep)
Just ignore your PTSD
(It's not that bad)
Forget your fucked up dreams
(You're not the only one)
Just swallow these and count those sheep
(Just swallow these and count those sheep)
Track Name: Last Day of School
Wake up in the morning, try to open my eyes
Get to the bus stop and ignore the bright sky
I get to my school, I go to my class
Teacher takes roll call and she calls my name last
One kid I don't know, starts to dig in his bag
My heart drops to the floor, when I see him pull out a .45 mag

Shots and screams fill the air
Tuck and roll under the chair
Tears and blood everywhere
I quietly say the Lords's Prayer

Danny's in the lunchroom, drawing on the table
He hears a big boom and he's simply not able
To move away, he sits and prays
"Please God, don't let this be my last day"

Lisa's in the hallway, skipping class
Might be her lucky day but she see's through the glass
Her friends gunned down in a quiet town
She drops to her knees and begins to plead
"Dear God, don't let this be their last day"

Will prayer save us?
Will it save us?
Will God save us?
Please God save us

Save us
