Track Name: Happy
I'll have "melancholy" written on my headstone.
Life is elegant until you find yourself alone.
I'm working on finding out why I dream of death.
I'll probably wonder that until I take my final breath.

I've got plans but they're falling apart.
(Got plans but they're falling apart).
I've got time but I'm all out of heart.
(Got time but I'm all out of heart).
I can't stand the god damn light of day.
(Can't stand the god damn light of day).
But I've got work and you know I need the pay.

I know this seems a lot like a happy song,
But looks can be deceiving and sometimes what is right is wrong.
I smoke my lungs out to bring about the end with haste.
If you're thinking that I'm cancerous you've only really got a taste
Of who I really am and how low I can go.

I've got plans but they're falling apart.
(Got plans but they're falling apart).
I've got time but I'm all out of heart.
(Got time but I'm all out of heart).
I can't stand the god damn light of day.
(Can't stand the god damn light of day).
But I've got work and you know I need the pay.

One day I'll be happy, you'll all see.
I'll stop believing everything bad only happens to me.
I'll stand up proud I'll rejoice aloud.
Though happiness now seems vapid and dumb
Ask me what I think after a bit more rum.

I've got friends but we're growing apart.
(Got friends but we're growing apart).
We never see each other and it's breaking my heart.
(Never see each other and it's breaking my heart).
We wake too early every god damn day.
(Wake too early every god damn day).
We're working overtime to earn our pay.
Track Name: Zip Tied
Zip tied in the back of a pickup truck.
Out of hope and I'm running low on luck.
This is it I can hear the shovel digging.
I'm about to be buried alive.

Woke up to the sound of everyone I've wronged
They gathered 'round singing dirge of a broken man.
Whispered to me that it wouldn't be long
'Til it was my turn to pay the ferryman.
I found I was bound to my own remorse
He spoke up with a voice so course
"Leave me here and maybe you'll escape"!
But I couldn't and thus sealed my fate.

(Dig Deep)
Yelled the crowd of onlookers.
(Dig Deep)
Shouted all of my peers.
(Dig Deep)
In the soiled desert sand, and bury me in all of my fears.

The dirt was damp I didn't have a chance.
I gasped for air and up above they danced.
There was no trial, jury, or judge,
And now I'm buried deep in the sludge.
My wrists were bound my legs were tied,
Won't be long for my crimes I'm tried.
I can't escape so why would I try?
And now I've been buried alive.

Clawing at the roof, gasping for air.
To deny the truth I'll suffocate.
I brought them the shovels I gave them my hand.
So retell my story and get it straight.
I put myself here, I've made my demands.
I bought my own ransom according to plan.
You are the witness to all that I told.
You stood on the side and let it unfold.

(Dig Deep)
Yelled the crowd of onlookers.
(Dig Deep)
Shouted all of my peers.
(Dig Deep)
In the soiled desert sand, and bury me in all of my fears.

This is it I can hear the shovel digging.
This is it I can hear the call.
This is it and I am to blame.
Save yourself or I'll bury you all.
Track Name: Stones
There is a rock made of flesh that thrives on hate.
It grows in our chest bigger every day.
It can't be killed with hope or pills
So we drown it in booze and dollar bills.

You don't buy products with nickels and dimes,
You buy them with work and ticking time.
How many hours did your TV cost?
How much life have you already lost?

This stone pumps a poison that some call life.
It's a cursed venom that burdens with strife.
There is no anodyne.
(Hark)! The sound of death
Grabs our throat, steals our every breath.
Open your wallet and close your eyes.
There's a sale on souls quick buy buy buy!

You don't buy products with nickels and dimes,
You buy them with work and ticking time.
How many hours did your TV cost?
How much life have you already lost?

Remove your heart and cast that stone.
If you never use something is it worth it to own?
Bury me in a torrent of rocks.
It's more cost effective than a velvet lined box.
(Burn burn)! The witch at stake.
There is no heaven for the soulless fakes.
Surround the scene in caution tape.
Then fill your gift bag in wrath and crepe.
Hear the cadence of the thunder storm.
Clothed in your money you'll be dry and warm.
Count the seconds from the lightening strike
And believe this hell is a place you like.

GO!

You don't buy products with nickels and dimes,
You buy them with work and ticking time.
How many hours did your TV cost?
How much life have you already lost?

Track Name: Skulls
I wandered through a museum in my dreams.
It showed me all the things that I wanted to be,
Like a writer or a singer in a ska-punk band
Or a comedian who shared a laugh with the land.
In the center of the hall was a stack of skulls.
A hundred and five of my attempted goals.
On the top of the pile I saw your head.
You smiled at me and then you said

Keep on, work hard for what you want.
It's not that tough, take little steps.
One day you could be the best.
Sing songs, that mean something to you.
If the words you say resonate
They'll sing along, it's not to late.

I found myself in a house on a hill
With a dragonfly on the windowsill.
Rain hit the glass and trickled 'round.
In the water was a message saying "Don't look down".
When I woke up morning had stole the night
And for once I felt I'd been doing right.
I stepped outside and smiled to the sky.
A stranger walked past and asked me why

Keep on, work hard for what you want.
It's not that tough, take little steps.
One day you could be the best.
Sing songs, that mean something to you.
If the words you say resonate
They'll sing along, it's not to late.

I hopped on my skateboard and popped and ollie.
I'm not that good, before running I'm crawling.
Sucking at something is the first step towards being sorta good at it.
I'm gonna do everything I want to do,
Be everything I need to be.
And when I'm done I know you'll still be gone
But your words will be right here with me.

Keep on.

Keep on, work hard for what you want.
It's not that tough, take little steps.
One day you could be the best.
Sing songs, that mean something to you.
If the words you say resonate
They'll sing along, it's not to late.
