Track Name: Rage
Rage

Caught me searching the bottom
Looked up through the neck of the bottle
Hand down shifting through the rubble
To find the menu of the morning
Dirt cheap I can't afford the coffee
By now the meat is turning over
Discarded meal is my lover
No choice but to savor the remains

CH: Rage
Aaaaahhhh
Rage
Aaaaahhhhaaaahhhhhaaaaa

Woke up sleeping in the sewer
Cold night passed staring at the moon
Pungent the odor ever present
Takes me back to the battlefield raid

CH:

This sinister life is not what I would call an existence
This sinister life has driven many a man to his destruction

Cast out abandoned and forgotten
No way to complement the system
Deployed in the name of religion
To kill the innocent in vein
Return to the land of occupation
Duty calls but with zero explanation
War lies to cover up crimes
And destroy the fabric of our ties

CH:
Track Name: Crash & Burn
Crash and Burn

I'm not your cowboy
To rope you in
I'm not your model
To make you win
No

CH: 'cause I had to crash and I had to burn
To find out if I could survive
A fall from grace is all it takes
To grab the bull by the horns

I got the feeling
You're gonna learn
From your misgivings
You sink or swim

CH:
Track Name: Gun
Gun

There's a simple rule of life I'm told
Do I pick a gun or chose a rose
I'm not a coward
I ain't no hero
My gun is loaded
But if I cross the line
There's no returning

CH: Lay your guns down on the road
Lay your guns down lay 'em down
Lay your gun down for a rose
Lay your guns down lay 'em down

Hit the road I'm going on the run
To pick a flower or commit a crime
I'm not a preacher
I ain't no gangster
I'll bite the bullet
Yet I don't like the road that I've been driving

CH:

Policeman is on a trail of red
Should have known he'd be there in the end
I'm not a killer
I ain't no bandit
I should have listened
I should have picked the rose

CH:
Track Name: Ride The Wave
Ride The Wave

Blindfold covers up your eyes
Can't see but you're not going blind
Hesitate and you'll lose control
Let the fear power up your soul

And now you let your mind guide you through
You gotta believe, believe in yourself

CH: So close your eyes and let yourself fall away
Take the time and ride the wave
A leap of faith will get you though one more day
You gotta believe, believe in yourself

There's no god in the heavens above
You own your adrenaline rush
Push down on the pedal to the floor
Burn rubber 'till you just want more

And now you let your mind guide you through
You gotta believe, believe in yourself

CH:

And now you let your mind guide you through
You gotta believe, believe in yourself

CH:
Track Name: The Hand That Bites The Dog
The Hand That Bites The Dog

There you go
There you go again
To change the world
To change perception
I thought you were
I thought you were a friend
But the love is lost
'Cause I need protection

And I can't pressure you to change your ways or your prescription
Your contradiction

CH: Is it the hand that bites the dog
And feeds you to the machine
For everything may turn out to be a lie
The hand that bites the dog
Makes you question everything you've learned
And all that money spent to just get by

There you go again
You killed the messenger
You maimed the courier
Then you'll kill the prophet next
It's hard to comprehend
How peace and truth can reign
When everything you say
And everything you've done

Is all for selfish gain and nothing makes you feel compassion
'sept devastation

CH:

There you go again
I thought you were a friend
You killed the messenger
Then you'll kill the prophet next

And I can't pressure you to change your ways or your prescription
Your devastation

CH:
Track Name: Crack Whore
Crack Whore

She's dressed to Kill
And on the pill
A modest lunch
A diet to thrill

CH: 'Cause she's a crack whore
She's gotta blow more
She's just a crack slut baby
A crazy crack slut baby

A party hat
A Smoking rat
You're not insane
It's just the cocaine

Oh you're so strung out

CH:

A credit card
Your lump of lard
Your eyes wide shut
You'll get your cut

CH:
Track Name: Follow Me
Follow Me

You can take me
You can hate me
But you'll find me right here
You can love me
But you can't leave me
And I won't disappear

CH: You can follow me
Follow me there
You can follow me
Follow me to the end


Like the Piper
I'll hypnotize ya'
You captured in my spell
Blow the whistle
I'll blow your mind
Chase the Dragon to hell

CH:

Your indecision turns into addiction
You take the road of least resistance

Bite your tongue
Swallow your pride
And come along for the ride

CH: You can follow me
Follow me there
You can follow me
Follow me there
You can follow me
You should follow
You can follow me
Follow me to the end
Track Name: Summer
Summer

In the springtime of our love
I hear you calling
And the music of your voice
Like a rainbow shining

When the sun comes out
And touches you
Like a smile
Your eyes light up like…


CH: Summer
Take me to the place I dream of
Take me to your desert island
Take me all the way to heaven
I'll go anywhere with you

Flowers bloom around your feet
Like a pillow of color
And the fountain of your hair
Lays a cool mist upon me

When the sun comes out
And touches you
Like a smile
Your eyes light up like…


CH: Summer
Take me to the place I dream of
Take me to your desert island
Take me all the way to heaven
I'll go anywhere with you

As long as you are there
I'm alive
The sun burns down like fire
And takes me to the sea of our love
Your eyes light up like..

CH:
Track Name: Killing Time
Killing Time

Buy your time is all you have
To spend it at your will
Don't leave it up to me
'Cause I will take your life
Unique commodity
There's one for you and me
Control your idle hands
Yeah…

CH: Killing time
Or is time killing you
Killing time
Or is time killing you


Sketch your demons in the sand
And drown them one by one
To restore peace of mind
And purge yourself

CH: x2

Born the sweet euphoria
From darkness comes the sun
Obscurity folds in
To reveal the precious time

CH:
Track Name: Checking Out
Checking Out

I can't get no sleep in this god-forsaken place
It's been a week or more and sunk into my face
I tried to cover up the hammer in my head
Another train rolls by and shakes me in bed


CH: I'm checking out
Checking out


Can't take another night of suffering in pain
Watching the roaches leave I should have done the same
Smoke one last cigarette and packing up my chest
Abandoning this ugly mess I used to call y home

CH:

I'm gonna ride on out of here…

…Can't take this shit hole one more day
I'm gonna pack my backs and go
I'm gonna ride out of here
I'm gonna fly out of here

CH:
