Track Name: Sirens
In the back of the stage at 7th
Getting late so I think I'll call it
2 AM I decide to walk it
With a butterfly in my pocket
In the pit where the guys are talking
Next door the police come knocking
Guess they came to shut down our rocking
But all the kids know there's no stopping

In the back of the 7-Eleven
Next door to a place called heaven
I hear the angels singing
When I listen to, listen to the sirens

Smoke clouds creating halos
Mixed up with all the weirdos
Spotlights and dirty solos
Mosh pits and old Cameros
Squatting here in the old hotel rooms
Shower in the truckstop bathroom
Food stamps and sleep until noon,
Play guitar it's all we can do

[chorus]

Those city lights surround me
Those trusty chords they drown me
Strangers with songs around me
That's where my angel found me

[chorus]
Track Name: Bloodsucking Parasites
Of all the places we could be
We chose the right one at the right time to lose our faith in all humanity
And all the sickness we have fought
Means nothing compared to the battle in our thoughts
Unconditional love – what's that?
When charity's driven by pride it remains just that

Between a rock and a cardboard box
Living a lie to preserve these proverbial ties
Feelin' stuck and fresh out of luck
Blood's thicker than water, sins of the father

Of all the people who love me
Why'd they have to be the same ones' to judge me?
And all the roads less traveled, we follow
To this halfway house where I cry into my pillow

[chorus]

Of all the money we don't have
Would it really buy contentment, would it make you glad?
To be alive and breathing, that's more than we could ask for
Nobody appreciates, they just want more

[chorus]
Track Name: Music Has Saved More People Than Jesus
Music doesn't matter, it's just a trivial waste of our time
It's nice for a hobby, you said, that your generation contrived
Music will never stop anyone from dying, and it won't help feed the poor
Well if all that's true then I don't wanna play guitar anymore

I never would have made it past the seventh grade
Without shitty pop-punk CD's
I wouldn't still be here to take care of my friends
Who sleep on a park bench

So I guess what I'm trying to say is
That I'd take the music over anything else any day
And it must be wearing off
Because there's people here to hear a girl strum at a knockoff
And if I could write a song that could make one person be better off
Then I'd know my job is done... But it won't be the last one

My sober friends would never get clean without Ian MacKaye
And the things that they say in Out Of Step
I wouldn't have the guts to be who I am
Without my record collection

So I guess what I'm trying to say is
That I don't believe in purpose without ambition
Don't believe in divine intervention, it won't catch my attention
But I believe in this
And if I could write a song that could make one person be better off
Then I'd know my job is done... But it won't be the last one
Track Name: I Am Rubber You Are Glue
Pig, whore, herbivore, I don't like you anymore
But that's okay, I'm not the one who's keeping score
Useless, prostitute, hag, waste, destitute
I may well be, but I think I've had enough of you

You must be an expert at everything
You must have some deep-seated suffering
You must be an expert about me
You must be afraid, afraid of something

Now I don't like to point the gun at anyone
I'm not your daughter and I'm not your son
I just have some questions about your mind
Did something break or were you born blind?

[chorus]

Cry baby, fat ass, idiot, gutter trash
I'm getting rather sick of this emotional whiplash
Bad in bed, stupid head, these are all the things she said
Well I don't care you can eat my lead!

[chorus]
Track Name: Herbivore Hostile Takeover
Herbies in McDonalds, Herbies in Wendy's
Herbies at the Burger King and Herbies at Denny's
Herbies in McDonalds, Herbies in Wendy's
Herbies at the Burger King and Herbies at Denny's

This revolution is to stop the world's pollution
And it may be a movement but it's not a solution
They say we all deserve the same right to freedom
If we're all so free, then why you gotta eat 'em?
Because we breathe the same atmosphere and share the same planet
What makes us so different than what goes on your sandwich?

I've got a problem with the way that you think
That this don't affect the soil or the water we drink
Yeah I'm a born-again hippie want to save the bees,
Wanna fuck up the system while I'm hugging the trees

Don't you know that the world is the only planet with beer and liquor on it?
Did you know that french fries are vegan? Thank god we can eat them
I'm gonna go eat some french fries so listen you guys
If you wanna come join me then we'll round up a posse and get

Herbies in McDonalds, Herbies in Wendy's
