Running Out 01:07
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

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

Parasite 01:47
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

Dirty Slate 01:09
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

Gone Astray 02:25
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
6.
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
7.
Deeper Hole 01:18
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
8.
Cut It Down 01:33
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
