Track Name: Don't Talk To Me About Life
Is this the way it's supposed to be,
A simple case of do or die,
So much is out of our control,
Why complicate it with a lie,
There is no understanding,
In a world like yours,
No one really knows the answer,
And religion is such a bore,
Trying hard to find a way,
To make things work,
But it's never easy,
In a world full of jerks,

Is there a future,
Do you even care,
Are you one of the lonely people,
Why is life so unfair,
Don't talk to me about life,
What is there to say,
I just want these feelings to go away,

Don't talk to me about life,
Don't talk to me about life.
Track Name: Something To Steal
Something tells me you don't know what you're doing when you talk of human psychology,
And sometimes it seems like you can't tell that I know that you're lying to me,
You can't see how clueless you are,
You've got it all upside down,
You've lied so much you can't remember the truth,
Too busy screwing around,

Sometimes I wonder what's thing big deal,
Sometimes I wonder if this is real,
And I can't trust you that's how I feel,
You're always looking for something to steal,

You're always talking but you can't hear,
What anyone else has to say,
You've ignored every single warning,
Convincing yourself it's all okay,

Sometimes I wonder what's thing big deal,
Sometimes I wonder if this is real,
And I can't trust you that's how I feel,
You're always looking for something to steal.
Track Name: The Murderer
I've seen the signs that it won't change soon,
With you around it's all doom and gloom,
You strut around as if you have the right,
Ending lives all day and night,

You killed that bird like you killed that cow,
And I don't know what you're going to kill now,
When it's all been said and the damage is done,
You won't put away that fucking gun,

Killing those who can't fight back,
A heart is obviously something you lack,
No matter how big or small,
You just want to kill them all,

You killed that whale like you killed that baboon,
You're always playing with your harpoon,
When it's all been said and the damage is done,
You won't put away that fucking gun,

You killed that moose like you killed that sow,
And I don't know what you're going to kill now,
When it's all been said and the damage is done,
You won't put away that fucking gun,

I see your eyes are cold and dead,
When you walk by we all fill with dread,
Who's next on your killing list,
We all have a right to exist.
Track Name: Killing The Scapegoat
I heard today,
You finally killed the scapegoat,
So what,
Are you going to do now,
You set them up,
Just to knock them down,
All in the name of,
Some holy cow,

Is this the life we died for,
Killing the scapegoat,
Is this what the millions cried for,
Killing the scapegoat,

Brainwash the unbelievers,
Tell them only your side,
Blame it all on some foreign man,
Deep down we all know you lied,

Is this the life we died for,
Killing the scapegoat,
Is this what the millions cried for,
Killing the scapegoat,

You created your own devil,
A puppet evil man,
Just so you could get what you wanted,
Oh what a glorious plan,

Is this the life we died for,
Killing the scapegoat,
Is this what the millions cried for,
Killing the scapegoat.
Track Name: Girls Of The Internet
Girls of the internet,
They all have so much to say
Staring back from behind the screen,
On the information super highway,
All the stories that they tell,
Lives on display for all to see,
Experiences of different kinds,
Smart and strong and wild and free,

Girls of the internet,
What you see is what you get,
And what they give away,
Is all they need to say,

Jaclyn used to be a Christian,
Until the day she saw the light,
Nowadays she understands,
That right is wrong and left is right,
Laina can trap you with one gaze,
As she stares into your soul,
Some say she's over attached,
But to make you laugh is her only goal,

Girls of the internet,
What you see is what you get,
And what they give away,
Is all they need to say,

Girls of the internet,
What you see is what you get,
And what they give away,
Is all they need to say,

Autumn walks on the darkside,
But her eyes shines like the sun,
She talks about the kind of things,
Most would not tell anyone,
Not sure who she'll be today,
Just not the one she used to be,
After all that she's been through,
Her bravery is something to see,

Girls of the internet,
What you see is what you get,
And what they give away,
Is all they need to say,
Track Name: Deckchair
Lately I've been,
Sitting on a deckchair in the middle of the road,
Lately I've been,
Sitting on a deckchair in the middle of the road,

And all the people (yeah yeah),
Seem to disappear,
And there's no one else (no one else),
In here,

Lately I've seen,
A lesser age of rain,
Lately I've seen,
The sound machine is coming down,

And all the people (yeah yeah),
Seem to disappear,
And there's no one else (no one else),
In here,

Sitting on a deckchair,
Sitting on a deckchair in the middle of the road.
Track Name: Cruithne
Get up,
Drunken Monkey,
While this may not count,
A rather crappy morning,
That no one wound up with,

That was forever so he made a movie,
That's the idea,
He worked it out thus ruining some scientist,
Zero gravity rehearsals to continue,

It ended up with neither,
Went under the brainwaves,
Speaking to the same time,
That no one may not count,

The stages of looking forward,
I get over 2 years,
That the website might enjoy,
I'm up to rock on,

As I sit,
By the world,
Earth has one more,
More than one it said,
True that is Cruithne.
Track Name: Bluff Creek Blues
All these voices in my head,
Telling me I'm easily lead,
So I'll listen to the voices in my heart,
There's a life outside unknown,
I have watched how it has grown,
It's so hard to get away,

We live in eternal candlelight,
No one's giving up the fight,
Don't listen to the symphony of hate,
Critics never get the greats,

I was stranded at bluff creek,
Could have been more than a week,
And I realized that I was not alone,
And the creatures on the hill,
I could tell they'd had their fill,
Of the stranger that they knew did not belong,

We live in eternal candlelight,
No one's giving up the fight,
Don't listen to the symphony of hate,
Critics never get the greats.
Track Name: He's The Sentinel Of Time
Verse 1:
The sentinel of time won't let us leave,
Trapped in the tangled web he weaves,
He is the lord of destruction,
Refrigeration unit of the soul,
The self proclaimed prince of demons,
A false horizon really takes it's toll,

Chorus:
He's the sentinel of time,
The sentinel of time,

Verse 2:
The serpent of eternity can never fail,
As he locks you away in his jail,
The greatest story that was ever denied,
Has just ruined your day,
So keep watching "Monsoon Poultry Hospital"
Just keep looking away,

Chorus.

Verse 3:
Can't remember how it used to be,
No idea of what it is to be free,
He points up to the hollow moon,
Says he created it all,
And though you're smart enough to know that he's lying,
You can do nothing till he falls,

Chorus.

Verse 4:
I don't want to be a prisoner,
Of someone who does not exist,
But so many will do acts so unspeakable,
To anyone not on their list,
For they feel that they must serve their god,
I personally find that rather odd,

Chorus.

Verse 5:
And so I say you better think for yourself,
And don't just follow one old book,
Why get stuck in someone else's lie,
Why not just have a look,
Be yourself...whatever that is,
Cause in the end...that's all there is.

Chorus.
Track Name: 1 Million Years
Seems like a million years,
Since it last came through here,
It's been gone so long,
I hope nothing has gone wrong,

Searching through out time,
A million years to make up your mind,
Searching for a better place,
1 million years stuck out in space,

Some people search the universe,
Will they find another place like Earth,
Searching for a million years,
I hope it doesn't end in tears,

Searching through out time,
A million years to make up your mind,
Searching for a better place,
1 million years stuck out in space,

Where will you be in a million years,
Maybe somewhere far away from here,
Searching for another place,
1 million years stuck out in space.
