Track Name: No Angel
Been around the block and all I see
No angel coming looking after me
I see a lot of faces that believe
They fill some predetermined destiny

And so much time
Flies on by
Scared to be alive
And so much time
Flies on by
And you’re scared to say goodbye

Since we were young
We were told these lies
That living for things
It change our lives in someway
And no one answers what we say

And now we're grown up
We barely feel alive
We're still looking for things
That could fill our lives in some way
And that makes no common sense to me

When I look up
I don’t see an angel
Smile upon me tonight
When I look up
All I see are molecules burning blue light
When I look up
I don’t fear an angel
Watching me tonight
When I look up
All I see are grains of sand passing through time

And when we grow up
We barely feel alive
Cause we're still looking for things
That could fill our lives in some way
Like the way they always said it would be

But we flock like sheep
To this great big lie
that people dead and gone can still
Affect our lives in some way
And that makes no common sense to me

When I look up
I don’t see an angel
Smile upon me tonight
When I look up
All I see are molecules burning blue light
When I look up
I don’t fear an angel
Watching me tonight
When I look up
All I see are grains of sand passing through time
Track Name: A-Ok
Listen can you hear me
You're not even listening

So close the doors and shut off the lights
There’s a storm coming in and I am not alright
And this world I seem to recreate
Always blows back up in my face

And I still cant find the way
You know it happens to me almost every single day

Cause I know I’ll find the pieces that are missing from my mind
And I know we’ll find the passion that I left so far behind
I know we’ll find the way
To make it all ok
I know we’ll find the way
To make it all ok
Cause sometimes everything’s not A-Ok

Listen can you hear me
I'm not even speaking

As the clouds move in and steal the light
I know that better times are far behind
And this world I seem to recreate
Never works out the way we anticipate

And I still cant find the way
And as the seasons change it happens more and more each day

Cause I know I’ll find the pieces that are missing from my mind
I know we’ll find the passion that I have left so far behind
I know we’ll find the way
To make it all ok
I know we’ll find the way
To make it all ok
Cause sometimes everything’s not A-Ok
Track Name: Headed For Disaster
We’re heading for disaster
The plane was falling faster
As we head out over water
The sirens start to sound, the engines quit

We’re heading for disaster
As the bodies start to gather
As we crash into the water
The water fills my lungs
And I cant swim

As the plane left ground tonight
Could you see I wasn't breathing
My lungs dried black from all the breathing
As you left me to die here

As we fell down from the sky
Could you see my heart was bleeding
My heart died black from all the beating
As you left me die here

In this grave made up of treason
I still can not believe it
That you'd leave me to die here
Always thought that we would make it
Turns out we did and I can't explain it
And you know that you'd leave me to die here all alone
You leave me to die here all alone

That you'd leave me to die here
Always thought that we would make it
Turns out we did and I can't explain it
And you know that you'd leave me to die here all alone
You'd leave me to die here all alone
You'd leave me to die here all alone
You'd leave me to die here all alone
Track Name: Born
We were born with lights down low
And that is all we know
Apple of our mother and fathers eye
Time will come where you will have to let them go
time to face the battle on your own

We say Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world
Think we're going out of our fucking minds
Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world
Think you're going out of your fucking minds

Time will come when you will learn society
Lets you down when you stray from the status quo
Stand in line with your mouth shut keep your head down low
We are all just pawns that make things go

Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world
Think we're going out of our fucking minds
Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world
Think you're going out of your fucking minds

Time will come when you will stop look around and see 
We are all just cogs in a broken machine
Wait in line keep your thoughts in please don't make a scene
One for none we fall to the selfish regime

Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world
Think we're going out of our fucking minds
Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world
Think you're going out of your fucking minds

Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world
Think we're going out of our fucking minds
Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world
Think you're going out of your fucking minds
Track Name: Alive
The cops pulled me over on the side of the road
First time in my life that I lost control
I couldn’t take it

Now you can’t believe everything you read
When you're feeling like this you will never believe
You’re going to make it

So I try to believe
That everything I see
Don’t mean a thing
Everything I see
Don’t mean a thing

And I think that sometimes
I think I’m losing my mind
Then girl I think about you and I feel fine
Don’t you feel alive tonight?

Remember way back when we were kids
Writing all these songs and we never thought
We’re going to make it

Now we’re all grown up and barely getting along
Lost all your touch and your looks are gone
You going to make it?

So I try to believe
That everything I see
Don’t mean a thing
Everything I see
Don’t mean a thing

And I think that sometimes
I think I’m losing my mind
Then girl I think about you and I feel fine
Don’t you feel alive tonight?

And I think that sometimes
I think I’m losing my mind
Then girl I think about you and I feel fine
Don’t you feel alive tonight?
Track Name: Rebels Of The New World
We lit a small wood fire
To make the ashes for
When we take control
Of this brave new world
We’ll watch you burn

We march the streets of fire
And the people watched it burn
And the leaders gave it all
To the rebels of the world

If we map the streets out right
No one gets out alive
Cause you can run there is no where to hide
Cause I am coming for you in the night
No prayer can save your life
For once we're going to watch you as you burn

We march the streets of fire
And the people watched it burn
And the leaders gave it all
To the rebels of the world

They do the same move every time
Prey on the the simple minds
As they use your faith to make you fucking blind
And we're coming for you in the the night
No god can save you life
Cause tonight we're going to watch you as you burn

And your wealth it will rot away
Watch you burn
And possessions they fade away
As we're facing this dream alone
Watch you burn
And we walk on this path alone
Watch you burn
Cause every hour of every day
They will watch your ways
In your home

We march the streets of fire
And the people watched it burn
And the leaders gave it all
To the rebels of the world
Track Name: Take Me Home*
I know it's gone half one,
by now we've missed the tubes home,
night bus won't take me there.
Can't fly the pilot's pissed,
can't walk the ground flies up and hits me.
Best scrape me into a cab and take me home.
Face down in poutine
Some big cheese all gone sour,
enough love to knock a rhino sideways,
got shoved under a bus,
some big Hollywood ending,
Bruce Willis shoots them all and gets the girl.
No guns, no girl,
somehow i've ended up on Barton

So take me home, take me home.
I've had more than i can take for one night.
One i closed i can nearly focus.
Take me home, take me home.
I've had all that i can take today.
It's all ringing in my ears, take me home.

Don't ask i'll tell you, don't ask I'll say the same things over until i'm pissing you off.
Scrape me off the walls, chuck me in a bag, drag me past the bouncers, shove me into a cab and take me home.

So take me home, take me home.
I've had more than i can take for one night.
One i closed i can nearly focus.
Take me home, take me home.
I've had all that i can take today.
It's all ringing in my ears, take me home.

So take me home, take me home.
I've had more than i can take for one night.
One i closed i can nearly focus.
Take me home, take me home.
I've had all that i can take today.
It's all ringing in my ears, take me home.
