Track Name: Take This Cup
I asked to feel the desperation behind Your Kingdom Come
Now seared into my soul I wish it could be unseen
The earth is full of so much pain from all the crap that is done
I wish I could puke it out but it is like drinking gasoline

Take This Cup Away From Me. Take This Cup

I'm glad a broken heart won't be despised but I wish it wasn't mine
Did Buddha ever want to be naive again, pain hidden from his view?
or was his will power so much greater than the power in my mind?
'cause I just want to fly away and have my strength renewed.

I'm glad Emanuel can relate because he became flesh
so He understands why entanglements are strangling me.
Even though He prayed for his cup to pass
he chose to drink it for all eternity
Track Name: RelaxXx
Frustrated and mad needing to vent
wondering where they might fit
The scene help my life and your too
so why let them join you

r e l a x X x

Outside the distopia may not be utopia
but it gives hope for a better day
Cliques won't bring about much change
I want everyone to see the way

Track Name: Freedumb (Isn't Free)
Spark starts a forest fire small rudder stears a ship
animals have become our pets but who can control a keyboard?

Freedumb - you can say anything
Freedumb - where will lead
Freedumb - don't be fooled
Freedumb - Isn't Free

To bring about what is right be slow to open your mouth
quick to open your ears and slow to open the can

Freedumb - you can say anything
Freedumb - where will lead
Freedumb - don't be fooled
Freedumb - Isn't Free

You actions have consequences you words live on in pixels
so look before you leap, think before you speak

Freedumb - you can say anything
Freedumb - where will lead
Freedumb - don't be fooled
Freedumb - Isn't Free
Track Name: My Dying Words
Will I be another cancer statistic
or part of Saginaw's murder rate?
Or taken out by an old lady
looking back in her rear view mirror?
Will I die alone in my bed
with the pain of my heart bleeding through
or surrounded by those I loved
remembering the lives we shared

How will I die? What will I say?
End with pride or full of shame?
Regret for the things I've done
hope for what's to come?

My Dying Words what'll they be?
Anger or Praise, Pain or Peace
Screaming scared or death
or remembering what I lived for

How will I die? What will I say?
End with pride or full of shame?
Regret for the things I've done
hope for what's to come?
Track Name: The Final Goodbye
The seasoned old soldier at his ships loading dock
with his beautiful bride still faithfully by his side
With a wink and a smile he says "love you, see you real soon"
but she cries knowing something is different this time

When this ship has sailed she know he won't return
This time is the Final Goodbye
She cherishes the moment, she knows he won't return
This Time is the Final Goodbye

Nothing left to do but put together the scrapbook
while remember the days gone by
When she had her soldier setting by her side
her soul mate there to hold her when she cried

When this ship has sailed she know he won't return
This time is the Final Goodbye
She cherishes the moment, she knows he won't return
This Time is the Final Goodbye
Track Name: Unappreciated
I was driving down the road just like any other day
until I finally noticed the sunset colors
I was totally in awe. Why didn't I see it before?
Why'd I leave your work Unappreciated

You're Unappreciated

A thousand pictures everyday inspiring artists in everyway
yet so few even know you're name
The sun moon ocean and sea, grass trees and human beings
yet you are unappreciated

You're Unappreciated

Help me be aware, help me to see
put in my heart and mind your works of art
Creation testifies there is a creator
yet you are unappreciated

You're Unappreciated

You are worthy
Track Name: Wedgie
When i get to heaven I want to give Jesus a wedgie.
Track Name: Decapitated
You're the kind of person who would
correct the grammar of my suicide note
I poured my heart out before you
and you complained about the mess on the floor

You've Been Decapitated

Am I just another notch on your altar post
another statistic for your next fund raiser
The love you show isn't like St John wrote about
the love you show makes me feel like a John

You've been Decapitated
Track Name: Kmart's Parking Lot
When God is slow I run ahead
When God is quick I'm slow to act
When God says wait I leave that spot

I'm like the kid hit by the car in
Kmart's Parking Lot
Track Name: Anarchist Revolt
Who will lead us in our anarchist revolt?
Track Name: Stop the Fire
Terrible to see millions of trees destroyed by fire - Stop the Fire
Green Peace chain someone please to the trees - Stop the Fire
Dowsers or flames all the same human chains - Stop the Fire
NTC save our Christmas trees please - Stop the Fire
Track Name: 3000
Three hundred times ten is three thousand
Shut Up
Track Name: Assist Kevorkian
Like so many others he is old and ill so why shouldn't he be killed
we can sell his organs to someone younger and richer

Why don't we assist Kevorkian

You value life based on contribution to society
You've become useless time for medicide

Why don't we assist Kevorkian

Time for a taste of your own medicine
the tables have turned you reap what you sow

Why don't we assist Kevorkian
Track Name: Postpartum Abortion
They found a month old baby in the trash today
everybody is shocked and mad says "the mother needs to pay,
Why didn't she abort it since that's ok
but to wait till after it is born, that's a shame"

Postpartum Abortion

So where do we draw the line? First trimester or last
Partial birth, a minute past? A month a year?
Five or Fifteen? Abnormal Inconvenient
or parents are poor minorities?

Postpartum Abortion

If its wrong tomorrow, its wrong today

See I don't understand how people can say
its ok to kill a baby today but not tomorrow
it seems to me if its wrong tomorrow
its wrong today

Postpartum Abortion
Track Name: Unity Beyond
Has our scene become just another clique?
If so it makes me sick.
If you're not in their friends band
They won't even give you a chance
Then there's all these bands who come play a show
but not support anybody else
what do they think they are the only band
or its a competition?

Unity Beyond a style and you're favorite band
Unity Beyond those who love you and them alone
Unity Beyond I remember and long for again
Unity Beyond where egos don't belong

We need to show some love and unity
even while singing what makes us mad
If we can't be more than shallow
it means nothing to me
if we can't move beyond
the competition and the gread
I might as well watch
MTV

Unity Beyond a style and you're favorite band
Unity Beyond those who love you and them alone
Unity Beyond I remember and long for again
Unity Beyond where egos don't belong
