Track Name: Running Out
Counting down, almost done
Time left is almost none
The hours and minutes pass
Good old days are fading fast

Running out

Feeling useless, living trapped
Now that youth has elapsed
If I loosen my grip
I can feel it start to slip

Running out

The one thing I said I’d never do, is end up feeling this
Still trying not to give up before we call it quits
Track Name: Get What's Coming
How much longer do you think it will last?
Until we get even and finally erase your ass

I can’t wait ’til you
Get what’s coming to ya

You probably thought you’d never get caught
Now you’re the one dying in a parking lot
We’ll settle the score when you fall from grace
And finally wipe that grin off of your face
So watch your back when we’re around
It’s only a matter of time before we bring you down

I can’t wait ’til you
Get what’s coming to ya

It won’t be long now before you burn
Until you fuck up and get what you’ve earned
When your luck runs out and the tables turn
I just can’t wait until you get what’s coming to you
Track Name: Parasite
You talk and talk, your bullshit mouth it never stops- Parasite
Hide behind, your backwards ethics and closed mind- Parasite
Just eat shit, your sudden death would be our benefit- Parasite

Not impressed with your bad attitude
Don't give a shit about your elitist views
You shun others and turn up your nose
Think you’re part of some club but you're really alone
Bullshit superiority you feign
I wanna use my fists to beat in your brain
Your arrogant days are fucking through
I wanna make it hurt, make you feel like I do
Track Name: Dirty Slate
I guess you can say that I still feel bitter
I’ll extend the olive branch into a wood chipper

You’re fixated on who’s to blame
So anxious to spread the shame
We’re dying in search of a higher ground
Gasping for air as we drown

You just can’t wait to cast the first stone
Teetering on your pedestal, waiting to be dethroned

You’re fixated on who’s to blame
So anxious to spread the shame
We’re dying in search of a higher ground
Gasping for air as we drown
We’ve put those days behind us, but you’re always there to remind us
We’ve made our mistakes, we have a dirty slate

Those who live in glass homes
Should watch their back when they throw stones
Made our mistakes, we have a dirty slate
Track Name: Gone Astray
I can see the summer heat radiating off of the street
Feel the hot concrete under the soles of my feet

Stolen beer, no fear, nothing better to do
Close my eyes into yesterday and it’s all through

Suburban menace, hopping fences, and we’re running wild
With an old soul but the heart of a child
I don’t yearn for those days or try to resist the change
Not trying to stay the same, only just maintain

Stolen beer, no fear, nothing better to do
Close my eyes into yesterday and it’s all through
No need to reminisce, it’s not the past I miss
Only those who live for yesterday
The ones that have gone astray

We have to learn a lesson from our indiscretions
Find out who we should be while we’re still naive
Before we’re set in our ways, before we’re unwilling to change
We have to learn to never, ever act our age
Track Name: Adios Motherfucker
I can’t believe you want me to feel sorry for you
Playing the victim in everything you do
Now we just have to cut you loose
Give you enough rope to tie a noose

You think you’re just a gift to the world, you're always out to please
You’re only out for yourself, you’re a fucking disease

Play the ‘good guy’, and wonder why you’re alone
Hung out to dry, but the fault is your own
Acting like we owe you something, we owe you nothing

Can’t say I’m sorry to see you go
Hasta nunca, amigo
Behind my back, trying to play me like a sucker
Adios motherfucker

Play the ‘good guy’, and wonder why you’re alone
Hung out to dry, but the fault is your own
Not up to your standards, no wonder you’re alone

Can’t say I’m sorry to see you go
Hasta nunca, amigo
Behind my back, trying to play me like a sucker
Adios motherfucker
Track Name: Deeper Hole
Dig in your heels, clench your fists
The more you resist, we persist
On your death bed, fearing what’s ahead
I can’t wait ’til your dead

Digging, digging a deeper hole
and we’ll bury you in it

Clinging to tradition, living confined
Left behind with the rest of your kind
Digging yourself deeper under ground
Not gonna wait for you to come around

“It’s just not the same”, no it ain’t
It’s called progress, auspicious change that you defame
Lick your lips and call us depraved
We’ll finally be free when we spit on your grave
Track Name: Cut It Down
Just the same old rhetoric
Culture of fear, a cheap gimmick
Hatred becomes justified
With the boundary lines you hide behind
Panic instilled, dread widespread
I won’t rest until those views are dead

They divide us, because they despise us
We can cut it down
They deny us, just despite us
We can cut it down

You ain’t a realist, you’re just misled
Won’t rest until those views are dead
