Track Name: Worth A Million
I’m trying to make a difference but am I just wasting my time?
Cause everyone’s going around and they’re all saying everything’s gonna be fine.
You tell me that we got no problems, I tell you that’s just a lie.
Cause we sit and we wait for the bad things to happen and that is our greatest crime.

It’s the way that we are born, it’s determined from the start
Sure you you got money inside of your pocket but tell me where’s your heart?
When will we learn that we’re all just human beings?
Life ain’t a race, it’s just a relation
Tell me can’t you see?

The people are struggling just like you
All of them are working they paid their dues
When will they see there’s something more that we can be?
Your life ain’t defined by a dollar sign
You just gotta learn to read between the lines
When will they see there’s something more that we can be?

I’m finding that everyone is scared to see what’s inside of themselves
They think that the lifestyle they have created is all that really sells
You tell me this is happiness well I couldn’t really tell
I’m sorry world, I don’t have a job but I think that I’m doing well

It’s the way that we are born, it’s determined from the start
Sure you you got money inside of your pocket but tell me where’s your heart?
When will we learn that we’re all just human beings?
Life ain’t a race, it’s just a relation
Tell me can’t you see?

The people are struggling just like you
All of them are working they paid their dues
When will they see there’s something more that we can be?
Your life ain’t defined by a dollar sign
You just gotta learn to read between the lines
When will they see there’s something more that we can be?

You think that you fucking know.
Track Name: Ignorance is Bliss
I wish that I was born in 1950
So I wouldn’t know that these cigarettes could kill me
Ignorance is bliss but I’m an educated man
I’m living in an hour glass as a grain of sand
And I want to forget everything so I can live my life
But the more you know the less you know why should I even try?

I’ve found everything we do
Turns out to be bad for you
It’s so hard to ignore the truth
But so easy to break the rules
So let’s make our lives shit
So we can enjoy it
Let’s make our lives shit
So we can live

I don’t want to know anything
If I know that it will hurt me
I think I’d rather know nothing
So please don’t talk to me

And if you’re gonna shove your facts into my face
I think I’d rather try to find another human race
I’d take them all to a different place
And I’d never tell them anything

I’ve found everything we do
Turns out to be bad for you
It’s so hard to ignore the truth
But so easy to break the rules
So let’s make our lives shit
So we can enjoy it
Let’s make our lives shit
So we can live
Track Name: Braindead
I never really was into assholenish and trickery
But lately I just feel I’m perfecting my abilities
I wish I could commit and I wish that I could change
But I don’t feel so bad cause we’re all a little insane
And even though I know that I don’t feel the same
I feel like everything is wrong and I don’t feel any blame
So I sit back and pretend that I don’t know anything
I feel the needle break the skin and I don’t feel any sting

I just wanna feel nothing, so I can feel something
And everything just fell right down the drain
I just wanna feel something, so I can feel nothing
Where the hell is my brain?

I stumble on the pavement
The ground beneath my feet
And I move it slowly
Like this earth moves around me

I just wanna feel nothing, so I can feel something
And everything just fell right down the drain
I just wanna feel something, so I can feel nothing
Where the hell is my brain?
Track Name: Another Day
Everyone’s so concerned with being the best
But who cares if you learn to stand out from the rest?
We learn to play along, to follow their trends
But let me tell you that won’t get you very far in the end
Don’t be another cog in the machine
Don’t worry just get crazy just get obscene
We don’t realize that our time’s so short
You got less than a hundred years go on kid give it some heart

Learn to stand for something and you will make your way
They can’t take your opinion away
You’re just fine yeah you will be okay
Don’t be afraid to say
What you want cause at the end of the day
You’re just trying to find your way
Don’t worry that you didn’t choose to play
You survived another day

Everyone’s so concerned with their success
They think it’s okay to make people feel like they’re less
Let me tell you, I think that something’s gone wrong
What the hell is going on?
Cause I’m just so fed up with the disrespect
They think they have a right just cause of the way they dress
And the people they hang out with and the places they go
You have your perfect little life?
Yeah, well I don’t know.

Learn to stand for something and you will make your way
They can’t take your opinion away
You’re just fine yeah you will be okay
Don’t be afraid to say
What you want cause at the end of the day
You’re just trying to find your way
Don’t worry that you didn’t choose to play
You survived another day
Track Name: Shadow Facts
I’m living like there’s no tomorrow
Cause every second’s one that I borrow
From death himself see I can never tell
How all of this will end
The little things are underrated
These simplicities have all but faded
The way we live is a waste and we still can’t face
The fact that death’s around the bend

So what do I have to say
When the choice ain’t mine to make
We’re gonna reach the end either way

My life is ending today and tomorrow and the day after that
And my bank account won’t matter when I’m gone
I’ll remember the faces and the places I’d never seen before
Cause my life ends when I walk out my front door

You got plastic in your pocket
Ain’t it special with your name on it?
A symbol of your greed
Responsibility ain’t just another trend

So what do I have to say
When the choice ain’t mine to make
We’re gonna reach the end either way

My life is ending today and tomorrow and the day after that
And my bank account won’t matter when I’m gone
I’ll remember the faces and the places I’d never seen before
Cause my life ends when I walk out my front door

Does anybody know the truth anymore?
Nobody knows what all of this is for
We’re all just fading away

So what do I have to say
When the choice ain’t mine to make
We’re gonna reach the end either way

My life is ending today and tomorrow and the day after that
And my bank account won’t matter when I’m gone
I’ll remember the faces and the places I’d never seen before
Cause my life ends when I walk out my front door
Track Name: People Like You
How am I supposed to feel
When everyone else’s band is so pretty
And I feel so shitty
Cause you won’t even listen to me
I get it, you guys are really cool
So keep sitting at the back of the room
I hate people like you

Cause actions speak louder than your words
But that don’t mean that your words don’t hurt
I hear you talking shit from a bathroom stall
Keep your opinion to yourself cause I don’t care at all
If you want to be part of a fucking scene
Than support everybody and their fucking dream
I’m sick of all the negativity
Except for this part right here
I hate people like you

I don’t care how big you get
You can stand thirty minutes for our fucking set
You’re perpetuating all this bullshit
Tell me how you justify it
Really we’re all a family
Play music together cause it’s what we need
And it’s as simple as that
Support your fucking local scene
Track Name: The Car Song
I’m letting everybody know
If I’m turning to the left or right
Or if I’m going straight
I’m heading nowhere
Just like my life
Today is just like
Yesterday and the day before
Cruise sunrise boulevard
No destination, never been here before
And if my car runs out of gas
I guess we’ll just have to
Go play downtown for some cash
And if there’s one thing I know for sure
It’s that we shouldn’t
Talk about death anymore
Track Name: Bottom of the Bottle
I got no money for beer but I drink every night
Ain’t got no money for weed but I still get high
I think the ten year old me would be so surprised
About the way that he now chooses to live his life
And still I feel like it’s all the same
Cause I feel this way every single day
And I’m wondering if all of this is worth it
What’s the cost for feeling like a piece of shit

I feel all of this taking my innocence
I can’t change the way that I live

So we stop and hit the packie, roll some wacky-tobaccy
I’m dulling my senses till I can’t feel anything
And nothing is right, everything is wrong
And I just wish that I could move on
Nothing is real, it don’t make no sense
And I don’t think that I could be feeling less
I find myself on your kitchen floor
And my life’s becoming such a bore

I feel all of this taking my innocence
I can’t change the way that I live

The bottom of the bottle is the end of me
Just move on and believe you’re free
I just want to make some sense
Because right now I could just care less
Track Name: Ska's Not Dead (1234 Pickitup)
Lacing up my Vans, I steal my moms van
Feeling kinda drunk can’t wait to see all my friends
Walk through the basement door
There’s empties on floor
Amps so fuckin loud can’t feel my head anymore

I drink a lot of beer I go out to the show
I put on my suspenders and my checkerboard sneakers
I’m only fifteen my parents don’t know
I put on my fedora and I skank some more
Where are all the girls? I wanna have some fun
But skanking feels better than masturbating
This is where I’ll live and this is where I’ll die
Ska won’t be dead as long as I’m alive

1 2 3 4 pick it the fuck up
Cops at the front door
Just tell them to fuck off

I drink a lot of beer I go out to the show
I put on my suspenders and my checkerboard sneakers
I’m only fifteen my parents don’t know
I put on my fedora and I skank some more
Where are all the girls? I wanna have some fun
But skanking feels better than masturbating
This is where I’ll live and this is where I’ll die
Ska won’t be dead as long as I’m alive
Track Name: Til I Die
The world seems fine til I open my eyes
Until I take a breath, until I walk outside
The worlds so kind til you open your mouth
And let that sad noise out
Don’t tell me what I’m about

I’m giving up on this world
Cause this world gave up on me
So why should I have to feel like
Anything is wrong with me?

I’m so concerned with making you proud
When all I wanna do is crack a beer and play my music loud
And if I’m done lying to myself
Then why is it so hard to do with everybody else?

I’m giving up on this world
Cause this world gave up on me
So why should I have to feel like
Anything is wrong with me?

I’m done living between the lines
You think you see what’s best for me
I think that you are blind
So I’ll sit on my stoop in the middle of the night
Forty ounces by my side
Have a good time til I die

Forty ounces by my side
Track Name: Jacket
I’ve got ten fucking dollars in my bank account
And I’ll convince myself that it’s okay
And it really is at the end of the day
Push myself to the edge
And I don’t know if I’ll make it to the summers end
If I die I don’t care
At least I had a fucking good time

So I’m sitting on the fence with no job experience
Stuck inside this vicious cycle that really has no end
So fuck you, and fuck this job too
I wish I’d never known you and that’s the fucking truth
Cause I’ve got my friends to help me out when I’m down
And if I get cold I’ll just steal a jacket from the lost and found
Cause I don’t need your money, I don’t need your lies
I just need myself, you should find it no surprise

I don’t care about anything at all
If I stumble if I fall
At least I know I had a good time
Hanging with my friends and playing with my band
And being here tonight
Nothing matters at all
If I stumble if I fall
At least I know I had a good time
Hanging with my friends and playing with my band
And being here tonight
