Track Name: Jerry
Hey, Can You Stay Awake with me?
We're almost out of beer but I know
That I won't sleep. It's 4am And I'm still here.
Where everything's fucked and nothing's going
right. I feel like I'm stuck , So I'll waste another night.
Just thinking about the things that I should say
so things would finally go my way,
Honestly, man, It's the same shit everytime
and I sympathise, just don't make your problems mine.

Three years later she walks up the winding
staircase to his room. And everyday since then
she's asked herself the same thing:
Was it something I said or something I did?
One thing's for sure parents should never have
to bury their kids.

Hey, Can You Stay Awake with me?
We're almost out of beer but I know
That I won't sleep. It's 4am And I'm still here.
And I don't know how much difference it would have
made: but I wish I would have stayed
Track Name: Admit Defeat
Why Should I waste my fucking life.
Feeding machines until I die?
Only this way makes sense to me,
in this basement, in this van (or car)
this is no fucking business plan.
I've wasted every ounce of energy
convincing you this is the only way,
this is all I know and there's nowhere
left for me to go.

And I don't fucking care about your faded
glory days, I don't care how much your job
pays. You told me I would say, this is the wrong
way, I'll see the big picture one day.

Settling down is just your way of giving in,
If I'm not like you I fucking win.
Admit defeat and let the years chew up
your skin, If I'm not like you I fucking win.
Track Name: Breakthrough
Just like a hatchet-wielding butcher,
drain the blood right from the skin you
puncture, used up all you can use until
we stood up and said ''I refuse it''

We worked so hard just to get this far
and disconnect (what the fuck did you expect?)
And in your eyes we don't exist, just a
number on a list (and it's not over yet)

It's not a breakthrough, it's a return to form
thanks for keeping this seat warm.
I'll never go that way again.

They waste your potential
but when will you learn?
Sit back and watch the fire burn.

You found your place and say
it just makes sense but you had to
crawl through the barbwire fence.

It's not a breakthrough, it's a return to form
thanks for keeping this seat warm.
I'll never go that way again.
Now this light has burned out.
Track Name: Gramophone
This pint has just run out of it's last one ounce of faith.
Life beats you fuckin down and right now I can't even think straight. My love is expressed through circle pits, fucked throats and clenched fists, this is how we cope with it. Give this broken record another spin , rid yourself of pent up thoughts of giving in , ***gibberish*** The chances are I'll pay for this, I'll grow up covered in stitches , this is the price I pay for having a good time everyday. All my life all I've known is an empty fridge and empty pockets. And all I can here is this ringing in my ears.
Track Name: Motherfuckers, Inc.
Why stop and think about the places we've
been , when I can't remember them?
Maybe I was too fucked up or , maybe I
just blocked it out.
These days it's not enough , I need something
more , I'm out the door and ,
these memories have faded , I can't believe
all the time I've waited.

Just to find out that your no different than
those motherfuckers who don't know what's
important , can't say I'm surprised but I
measure success in how much fun I have,
not a paycheck.

And If you had any pride in your own work,
you wouldn't give it all away at birth, self
reliance is the true independence,
and your just content to delegate the process.

Revel in the things you have, clear a path
and don't loook back , I'd hate to think you
turned the way from all your friends who
paved the way.

So I found out that your no different than
those motherfuckers who don't know what's
important , can't say I'm surprised but I
measure success in how much fun I have,
not a paycheck.

So the lessons have been learned
and the bridges have been burned
good times I wont forget
but I've got no fucking regret.
