Track Name: Beg for Mercy
We are the children of everything you want
hard to have a Christmas in your motherfuckin' car
When living in the jungle your enemy is love
I used to believe I used to believe I used to believe in drugs

So beg for mercy
from all your pain
until you realize exactly who to hate
I used to believe I used to believe in misery
so save our children, save our throats

I used to believe I used to believe I used to believe in you
And now the city, it gets inside
illuminates the narcissist that hides behind your eyes
You are a monster and not a super star
help everyone realize exactly who you are

So beg for mercy
so beg for love
so beg for nothing
that you deserve
I used to believe I used to believe
in mystery
so save the children and rid us of disease

I'll try to explain
all these terms for you
and I promise
I'll be there for you

CHORUS
Track Name: Master of Your Disaster
Swing, swing, but you can’t hit a thing ur so weak
Drip, drip like the blood from your lip you can’t speak
They count to ten but you do it again yeah
Your hate makes the pain go away
So don’t let them stand in your way ‘cause

You can walk into the flames and
You should never be afraid cuz
You are the master of your disaster
C’mon, c’mon go get what you’re after

Fight, fight in the blackest of night you can’t see
Swing, swing, that you’re writing your own eulogy
The fist makes the fear go away
When you say what you need to say ‘cause

CHORUS

Before it slips away (Before you lose your way)
Before you go insane (It’s an emergency)
This is your victory
Just don’t – just don’t
Don’t let it get away

CHORUS
Track Name: Drugstore Cowboy
C'mon, c'mon you know we wish you well
from the bottom of our prison cells
c'mon, c'mon you really fucked this up
you know your time is up
on the last train to paradise
with one last chance to make it right

Oh no your in the way
so step aside for the drugstore cowboy
oh no out of the way
look in the eyes of a drugstore cowboy
you can't tear us down
we've had enough
we'll fight our own way out

Go on, go on this is a robbery
and we don't believe a thing you say
C'mon, c'mon somebody's got to pay
so close the curtain on
one last trip to paradise
and one last chance to paralyze

Oh no your in the way
so step aside for the drugstore cowboy
oh no get out the way
don't fuck around with the drugstore cowboy
you can't fool us now
(You can't tear/pull us down)
we've had enough
we'll find our own way out

No surrender...
Track Name: With the Lights Out
She don't like the way the light falls right off her face
but she's got a good body, good body
And everywhere she goes everybody knows her name
They're singing Lay-lay-lay-lay-lay-lay-la
She tells her boy she's going out for the night
and he pretends that it's alright
cuz what's he gona' say
nothing comes easy today
She found out the hard way

You look better with the lights out, with the lights out,
but you're never gonna' find a way to escape
with the lights out, with the lights out!

She's in love with a boy from East LA
he wants to be somebody-somebody
It's hard to dream when the cities got it's foot on your face
he does it for Lay-lay-lay-lay-lay-lay-la
and so he hangs in the shadows at night
get what you want best be ready to fight
but what's she gonna' say
nothing comes easy today
he found out the hard way

You look better with the sundown and the lights out and the lights out
but you're never gonna' find a way to escape
with the lights out, with the lights out!
It's okay to be who you hate with the lights out with the lights out
but you're never gonna' rise above this place
with the lights out with the lights out!

So cut the chord and run away
Cuz no one said you can't be who you wanna be

You never really had a say-so
until you got yourself a pistol
and then you shot away your halo
and now you're never gonna' go home

You look better with the lights out, with the lights out,
but you're never gonna' find a way to escape
with the lights out, with the lights out!
Track Name: How to Shoot Lasers from Your Eyes
You’ve faulty circuitry
But that’s comforting to me
'Cause nobody’s perfect
But every time you walk away
I swear I can hear you say
You’ve got your eyes on me

I’m everything you want
(nothing at all)
You’re everything I need
yeah right
But despite my tries
I cannot hide from
The red lasers shooting out your eyes

You’ve got a twisted mind
I’ve got a twisted soul
And it seems so perfect
But you’ve got to let me go
And she says I don’t think so
As she burns right through a wall

I’m everything you want
(nothing at all)
You’re everything I need
yeah right
Despite my tries
I cannot hide from
The red lasers shooting from your eyes

What’s that burning sting on the back of my head?
Must be something I said to you
probably something I did
If you’re looking for answers
don’t be looking at me
You know they say if you love something
you gotta’ set it free
Why don’t you set me free?

'Cause I’m nothing that you want
And you’re nothing that I need
And after all this time
I still can’t hide from
Those fucking lasers shooting from your eyes
those red lasers shooting from your eyes
lasers shooting from your eyes
lasers shooting from your eyes
your eyes
your eyes
your eyes
your eyes
Track Name: A Million Miles Below the Earth
Oh children gather round and help me leave this circus
Take turns and bury me far beneath the surface

Count down
set, set, go
Fallout
let, let go
So now,
We'll find a place to hide

A million miles below the earth
and past the sunrise
A million times around the sun
into the starlight

Count down
set, set, go
Fallout
let, let go
So now,
We'll find a place to lay

Oh father grant me time to realize my purpose
Don't bother testing me before the final curtain

A million miles below the earth
and past the sunrise
A million miles around the sun
into the starlight
In the silence of the dirt you will find peace
In the shadows of the world you will be free

Gods of war will finally have revenge
So they swore in this life or the next

Repose in the ribcage of the gods
you've been here much too long (much too long)
but you can't have it all
Track Name: Unnamed Road
Ten years ago I chased a fantasy
I don't know why
Ten years ago I lost a part of me
but now I'm fine
I can't believe that you're still into me
when all is lost
Ten years ago I tried to change the world
but now I'm fine

You hit the gas and I'll steer
destination nowhere
behind us everything we've known
but this is path we chose
We ride on an unnamed road

Ten years ago I was a better man
but now I lie
Ten years ago we gave the best we had
at least we tried

CHORUS

Say it isn't so
How did we get it so wrong
Nothing left to lose
and we've been waiting for so long

Ten years from now will you remember me?
and all we've done.

So you hit the gas and I'll steer
destination nowhere
behind us everyone we've known
but this is path we chose
We ride on an unnamed road
Track Name: Archers Aim High
If you can kill a man
You can begat his hate
But if you kill the command
There will be hell to pay
You cannot rip through us
With your swords and guns
But if it should come to pass
We’ll bury you in the sand

Archers aim high,
never say never
Shoot for the sky,
take down forever
Just you and I
straight to wherever
I won’t deny you

Cuz now there's a hole in the sky
so don't let it pass you by
and this maybe our last chance
So let's give it one more try

Archers aim high,
never say never
Shoot for the sky,
take down forever
Just you and I
straight to wherever
I won’t deny you

Or curse you, or forsake you,
inside this castle there's just no room for negativity
So I beg you, just stay true
Cuz there's no telling just where these arrows land
when we let them go

Archers aim high,
never say never
Shoot for the sky,
take down forever
Just you and I
straight to wherever
I won’t deny you
They won't deny you
Fate will decide too
I won't deny you
Archers aim high
