Track Name: Conversations
Do you remember conversations?
I remember drinking on the rooftop with you
You were drinking Jameson and I was drunk off Heineken
And I remember pointing out the holes in our shoes

I lost my friends in New York City
I lost my friends that hit LA
I found my heart in ole’ St. Louis
And Chicago brought us home to stay
Now my friends all know me now by how I sound and what I say on the telephone

You know I try to be a good friend
But I’d give my all to watch my good friends grow old with me
Track Name: Fall In Line
We’re pitted against each other
And so violently we fall
Watch them tie our hands together
And throw our backs against the wall
They say they offer dignity, you know they offer lies
Because they steal all our creativity
We’re forced to say goodbye to our souls

Now what else can we do but fall in line?

Now you’re tasting blood
And it’s the blood of all your friends
Crushing hard against your skull
They hear you praying for the end
They say they offer sympathy, you know they fucking lie
Because they steal all our creativity
We’re forced to say goodbye to our souls

Now what else can we do but fall in line?
Track Name: 333
Something’s wrong
I’ve got myself all tied in knots
I’m pulling my hair out, one for every song we’ve sung
It’s all we’ve known. I’ve told myself these lies before
And I’ve gone mad, and you know we’re half demons now

And we’ll never make it to Heaven
333, oh we’re half demons now
And you know we’ll never make it to Heaven

Enough is enough
I’ve opened the door now just let me out, there’s no windows here
You’ve got me writhing on the floor
It’s all we’ve known. I feel the fires burn my soul
And I’ve grown horns to prove we’re half demons now

And we’ll never make it to Heaven
333, oh we’re half demons now
And you know we’ll never make it to Heaven
Oh, yeah, 333

We’ll never make it at all now
We’re half demon now, yeah 333
Track Name: American Eyes
Another night in the alley, baby, coughing up pieces of lung
Glass hitting pavement greets you as you walk right out of the door

You know it is unreal, the way that you walk, your hips kind of clutter my senses
You got me grabbing my chest, you got me aching for Lord knows what anymore
You know the night just started, it was a little more wild, now it’s just a little more sweet
But it’s all around and it’s over again
As if it wasn’t enough

Go on, Darling, throw another rock, you know I caught that ripple before
Now you got me relaxed, you got me waiting for your typhoon to wash up on shore
You know the music is blaring, the wind blows your hair
Your American eyes still scream that you want me
You know your red dress has got me white as a ghost
Oh, pretty baby take me home

You can throw me round, twist my arm, pull me back up again, you got me under your thumb
You got me shaking now, you got me calling out for God knows what anymore
Yeah, baby, tonight’s the night we can burn all our desires
But it’s all around and it’s over again
As if it wasn’t enough, baby, we can fire it up
Track Name: Look Out Below
You got me coming in hot
Unraveling slow
This life or nothing
It’s this life or nothing

This world is a crime
You got me shackled in woe
Bring on the darkness
Bring on the war

The whole town is burning around you, better watch your step, you got me coming in strong
The priest wants to tell you, priest wants to save you
“Oh, Mama, I can save your soul.”

The whole town is burning around you, better watch your step, you got me coming in strong
The priest wants to tell you, priest wants to tell you
“No Hail Mary’s going to save you now.”
Whole town, the priest are coming too
Like you wanted to know
You bastards better look out below

The whole town is burning around you, better watch your step, you got me coming in strong
The priest wants to tell you,
“No, you can’t save yourself, and no one’s going to save you at all now.”
You want to taste this cool? You got me coming all around
You bastards better look out below
Track Name: God Doesn't Know
God doesn’t know what I’ve done
And God doesn’t care about a freak like me
God doesn’t know, and God doesn’t give a God damned shit about it
Track Name: Ignominy Called Glory
Chalk it up as a loss
With our words so insincere and the promise we broke
We forged it out of steel
And the things that we’ve done with our lives, nearly criminal
And potentially yours
But as shadows we will never sway

We put these crests atop these waves
Watched them break day after day
But all they break are our arms and our dreams
And we built these walls
We built them tall, built them strong
And reinforced them with our lies which makes them all the harder to pull down
And we signed with this cross
We’ve been seasoned with the salt
But I still taste like the insufficient son I am
Who are we anymore?

Chalk it up as a loss
I never had a change here on this earth
God gave me his gift of love and I never want to share it with my friends
Or all of my family
Then I wonder why I’m thrown aside
And torn apart
Maybe next life I’ll know how not to judge

I watched you put these crests atop these waves
Watched them break day after day
But all they break are our arms and our dreams
And we built these walls
We built them tall, built them strong
And reinforced them with our lies which makes them all the harder to pull down
And we signed with this cross
We’ve been seasoned with the salt
But I still taste like the insufficient son I am

Who are we to judge the wicked and the weak?
Who are we to judge the mild and the meek?
Who are we to judge the righteous and the saved?
Who are we anymore?
Track Name: How Did We Get Here
How did we get here?
Oh, my dear friends, I’m doing this without you
And your point of view
How did we get here?
And why do we hurt ourselves?
How did we get here?

When I was young, I thought my whole world was broken
And I was young, so I got drunk because I bored you
And I was dumb, because I was young and I felt broken
And I was broken.

How did we get here?
How about I let you take control?
If it wasn’t for you, I’d run around like a new set of wheels.
And now that we got here
I know you’re leaving here today, and it’s fucked up either way

Because of you, we’re going down and out, Chicago
Because of you, we’re going six feet underground
Because of you, we’re taking one last ride tonight
Because of you, well watch what I become because of you
Track Name: Rats In The Alley
All we know is bright lights, big city
The time will come when you are trying to get out while you can
But it’s what you really wanted to outlive all your friends
It’s all you’ve ever wanted in the end

Rita shouted so much hope and started singing
Rita shouted so much hope and started singing it, again
Don’t you really know that we’re going to die alone?
And we won’t be buried with our friends
Don’t you really know we’re going to die alone tonight

All we know is bright lights, big city
The time will come when you’re trying to get out while you’re young
But it’s what you really wanted to die before your friends
It’s all you’ve ever wanted in the end
Track Name: Alone
There’s something to dying alone
You’ve got me waiting on your reach
And they say the worst is over now
But you’ve got me freaking out

And though I’m walking defeated, you’re alone
But I’ve been wrong
You know, there’s something to dying alone

You’re such a free soul tonight
But what is free if you can’t breathe?
And this song will take your breath away
As we stick to the war we start

And though I’m walking defeated, you’re alone
But I’ve been wrong
You might be better off on your own

And though I’m walking defeated, you’re alone
But I’ve been wrong
Your God’s expected to right your wrong
And I’ll be gone before you claim that you’re all alone
But I’ve been wrong
You’re so excited to die without a note
Track Name: Hallway Party
I wrote a song, baby,
I’ll trade it for your love later
I wrote a sweet song, but it doesn’t really fucking matter, does it?

There’s a party in the hallway and we’re not invited yet
Fuck those bitches in the head
There’s a party in the hallway and we’re not invited
Fuck those bitches, fuck ‘em in their brains
There’s no partying for you, there’s no partying for me
You know it’s a school night baby
There’s a party in the hallway and we’re not invited yet
Tell them like it is, Hayes

There ain’t no party like a hallway party
Unless you’re getting fucked up
It doesn’t matter where you throw up
We’re doing coke on your doorknobs
We’re smoking week through the eye holes
I got PCP on your rug, heroin overdose
You got your meth, and your speed, and your motherfucking dope

You got so fucked up with all of your drugs and
You got so fucked up when they filled up your lungs and
You got so fucked up with all of your books
You got so fucked up and now you’re fucking hooked

There’s a party in the hallway and we’re not invited…
WE’RE GETTING FUCKED UP INSTEAD!
