Wouldn't It Be Nice
I have a vision of many things to come
a way to erase mistakes that have previously been done
and a time where man meets man without a glare but with a smile
stop brooding on old things taste new ones for awhile
until we try how will we know?
How will we know until we try?
So let's say we give it a go
to find the world that we're looking for
say find the children grow to be what they wanna be
point them in the right direction to build their own reality
lies and deception they can't tell what is real
walk with your feelings then "shout" how you feel
dig my utopia flavor euphoria all hands raised
"hallelujah" sing a little Gloria caise
what is good what is right who the fuck decides?
The places I see are through an individuals eyesback to top
Living for Today
I'll tell you what I see is a world belonging to me
take time to find what you may dream
it's all right there within your grasp
just beyond what you can see we're the ones,

the only ones, strong ones,proud ones we're living for today
those for the past and tomorrow they'll have hell to pay

and if your life is going by too fast it's time for you to slow
down it's time for you to make it last before you trip and slip
and you will miss this happy little
stepping stone just before eternal bliss

the only ones, strong ones,proud ones we're living for today
those for the past and tomorrow they'll have hell to pay

the only ones, strong ones,proud ones we're living for today
those for the past and tomorrow they'll have hell to pay

your life goes by before you know you gotta take time to slow down
better take time to veer off the road
enjoy the sights while you are here
there's nothing to fear but fear itself
who knows when the end is near

the only ones, strong ones,proud ones we're living for today
those for the past and tomorrow they'll have hell to pay

the only ones, strong ones,proud ones we're living for today
those for the past and tomorrow they'll have hell to pay

don't make plans with your hands tied you'll never know
you're missing out repeatedly on the things that help you grow
you've got to own your soul you've got to take control
find a one day plan young man get this straight live for today.back to top
Final Chapters
Outside my window I see trouble.
On the faces on the people in the streets below.
One gets a feeling discontentment.
Why there is anger I don't know.
Or is it always in my mind.
Or my vivid imagination.
Creating this monster at my side.
Hello, hello to who's ever out there.
Can you please give us some more time.
Or is this the final chapter.
Final chapter of the world.
So many times, so many chances.
So many roadblocks I see on the way.
I think a new start is in order.
It's time to build a new highway.
Fight, fight, fight.
The end result is that we'll all
Die, die, die.
Generations will wonder
Why, why, why.
Why we kissed our ass good
Bye, bye, bye.
I'll see you on the other side.
Why there should be so many answers.
I'll see you on the other side.back to top
Can't Believe It
I said...Wait! Can't Believe it
I said...Wait! (Wait!) Can't Believe it

Another victim another life another wasted casualty
The youth are shooting, robbing and looting
violence plagues society
in L.A. you see it everyday on your TV on your front page
you can try but you can't wish it away (away)

I said...Wait! Can't Believe it
I said...Wait! (Wait!) Can't Believe it

Drunk and loaded in the street
hatred flowing through their veins no respect for human life
a world that slowly goes insane
in L.A. you see it everyday on your TV on your front page
you can try but you can't wish it away (away)

I said...Wait! Can't Believe it
I said...Wait! (Wait!) Can't Believe it

On your front page on your TV it's the endless urban tragedy
In your dark thoughts and wildest dreams can you imagine
a worse society and when I think I can pretend
I turn on my TV again and all the fucked up things I see
I can't believe how this can be.

Wait! Can't Believe it
I said...Wait! (Wait!) Can't Believe itback to top
Unknown Road
'...two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by, and
That has made all the difference.' r. frost

So you're currently content with your surroundings
You possess a vague sense of accomplishment
Did you give all you had to give or did you
Give conservative
Do you think that all the years that passed you
By we're all well spent
Pictures of everyday life spark memories
And certain things pull triggers in your mind
What would be different now if you were
There than here.
What passages, what fantasies lie just
Beyond the unknown road
Do you know, the miracles that could
Be found they're waiting down the
Unknown road, so it goes
A few more cornerstones that could be yours
Ever get the thought you were mistaken?
Ever think about the stones you've left
Un-turned? more chances slip away with
Every passing day, suffering with cold
You're so afraid you might get burned.
And wondering can take it's toll yeah
And wondering you can rack your skull
And wondering can send your
Imagination up a tree
Wondering what fantasies lie just
Beyond the unknown road
Time is right now of the essence
Time is right to learn your lessons
Time is all that you have left
Things you've contemplated
The unknown road is oneback to top
Homesick
I walk down my old street, Used to be home for me,
And
Now theres spraypaint on the walls.
I see a house that at one time looked nice but now it is
abandoned,
theres nothing left at all.
So why-y-y must we let our chances fly,
and when oh when oh when will we ever
see hope again
and why-y-y is it so hard to say goodbye,
oh well oh well at least i can
still remember when our
City used to be such a beautiful place,
but now you cant walk down the street and think youll see the same
my hands are in the air,
it makes no sense to me,
and i
cannot
explain this tragedy...
-
My first trip to the city, yeah, i remember thinking
that those buildings stood so tall,
but now i see that my old stomping ground has just been ravaged,
they seem now rather small,
So why-y-y must we let our chances fly,
and when oh when oh when will we ever
see hope again
why-y-y is it so hard to say goodbye,
oh well oh well at least i can
still remember when our
City used to be such a beautiful place,
but now you cant walk down the street and think youll see the same
my hands are in the air,
it makes no sense to me,
and i
cannot
explain this tragedy...
-
feels like im living in someone elses dream,
Nothing seems as if its the way that should be,
Its like a dark cloud swallowed up in humanity,
Whatever it is, its beyond me.
-
Homesickness is the flu that surrounds me,
A virus spreading through the street, it astounds me,
Homesickness-
-
our City used to be such a beautiful place,
but now you cant walk down the street and think youll see the same
my hands are in the air,
it makes no sense to me,
and i
cannot
explain this tragedy...back to top
No Reason Why
I look at my self
the person in the mirror is asking me
asking me why I lie to myself
what's the meaning of this charade
or the reason why
cause no one knows me quite better than I know myself
but that doesn't stop me from asking myself
the reason why no reason why
we lie to ourselves or anyone else
I look inside my life
cause I can see the things that no one else can see
about the real me
cause it's only the outside
you really see so don't ask me why I keep inside
the things that I choose to hide
still it doesn't stop me from asking myself
it gets me farther behind
cheaters never prosper
I've heard that line
but it keeps me set in my ways
look me up after you've found outback to top
Fight Till You Die
Look all around you there's a war that's going on
A struggle against the odds that's breaking out and must be won
They're getting ready with the weapons they have found
Take inspiration from the sound
See it in the faces of the people everyday
We need to take control and find some ammo right away our
cause is righteous and we're gonna have our say
Get ready for the judgement day
Go ahead and try
Or kiss your ass goodbye
People of society are running for their lives
Get up now and go
Or you're never gonna know
Never gonna make it in your houses lying low
Give it one good try
Give it all and fight till you die
A puppet government their dying in the streets
Families are breaking up cause underpaids can't make ends meet
The establishment has put their money underground
Cause they all know what's coming down
A lucky precious few with money in their banks
Can't imagine what it's like to find yourself in homeless ranks
They've got no conscience for the ones who won't survive
The time for payback has arrived

Go ahead and try
Or kiss your ass goodbye
People of society are running for their lives
Get up now and go
Or you're never gonna know
Never gonna make it in your houses lying low
Give it one good try
Give it all and fight till you die

All alone in your own society outside are the cries of lives in misery
and evil plot of false democracy subjugating souls just dying to be free

Look all around you there's a war that's going on
A struggle against the odds that's breaking out and must be won
They're getting ready with the weapons they have found
Take inspiration from the sound
See it in the faces of the people everyday
We need to take control and find some ammo right away our
cause is righteous and we're gonna have our say
Get ready for the judgement day
Go ahead and try
Or kiss your ass goodbye
People of society are running for their lives
Get up now and go
Or you're never gonna know
Never gonna make it in your houses lying low
Give it one good try
Give it all and fight till you die!

Peaceful Day
Listen up everyone, There's something wrong
We got the answers in our sights now, but some how still we struggle along
Lookin' for solutions, in a threatening sky
But we never get an answer
Just chorus of voices wondering why

We're stuck here, without a peaceful day
It's a promise in the night, I'll be ok
The superlative is tellin' me that help is on the way
Won't someone tell me how... Will I make it through the day

Looking towards the future, and all I can see
Is the next generation, looking back with pitty on me
Hunting for some insight, or a means to change
But do we have the will to, or will our future look the same

We're stuck here, without a peaceful day
It's a promise in the night, I'll be ok
The superlative is tellin' me that help is on the way
Won't someone tell me how... Will I make it through the day

How can I live? When you won't let me in
How can I die? Without the reasons why
How can I laugh? When I want to cry
How can I go on? With nothing no where

Listen up everyone, There's something wrong
We got the answers in our sights now, but some how still we struggle along
We're stuck here, without a peaceful day
It's a promise in the night, I'll be ok
The superlative is tellin' me that help is on the way
Won't someone tell me how... Will I make it through the day

How will I make it?
How will I make it?
How will I make it?
Tell me, How will I make it?!back to top
Society
We all know there's something wrong and we've known it all along
Sincerity
You may think there's no one else till they put you on a shelf
Society
pay your taxes stand in line help them plan for your demise
Society
crush the weak and get your share cause nobody's playing fair and no one cares
How long you pray makes no difference today
When your society devises how you'll pay
When finiding the truth makes no difference to you
any way you look at it you're gonna get screwed
You lose
Society
no one here can get along cause our history's too long
Sincerity
think you're going with the flow but you never really know
Society
to all the leaders it's a game and it's making you insane
Society
data patterns are supplied proof to back up all the lies
hardly aliveback to top
Straight Ahead
Hey, hey, hey

All the things you want all the things you need
you got the power to choose you got the right to be
All the things you loathe all the things you hate
is what you will become until you will go straight
All the things denied the shit you can't believe
you don't blame yourself you blame society
All the things in life that you've been waiting for

All your problems won't go away
I guess this is the price you pay
Your decisions you will soon regret
throw away your life go straight ahead

...It's your fucken life

I see you everyday wasting your time away

All the things you loathe all the things you hate

All the things in life all that you wanna be
but you don't even try you want it all for free
All the things in life that you've been waiting for
wait outside your door

All your problems won't go away
I guess this is the price you pay
Your decisions you will soon regret
throw away your life go straight ahead

...It's your fucken life
Go straight ahead

All the things in life that you've been waiting for

Pennywise

clear your mind hide your fear
don't look around
don't turn around
pennywise is here
evil lurks in his eyes
the clown they call pennywise
he's a monster
he's not human
he's more than just a figment of your imagination
you can't run can't hide
there's no way to escape pennywise
he'll creep inside your soul at night
and torment nice and slow
don't turn around or look around
pennywise will know
he'll make you wish that you were dead
and make it hard to cope
he'll make you wish that you were dead

Perfect People
All the perfect people- Shallow and deceitful
Staring back at me on TV in magazines
Look so good like a box of fresh wrapped twinkies
What the hell happened to me?
So I took a drive to a rich and wealthy country
Saw everything I wanted and everything I need
Went right up and tried to join their party
You oughta seen the look when they saw me
Fucked up eyes- Stupid grin
Perfect people won't let me in
Who's who list- Where's my name
They won't let me join their game
I bet you think that I'm insane
There's no one left for me to blame
Screw the perfect people
Fuck they all look the same
We're not much to look at
Too short, dumb and so fat
Never gonna win a beauty pageant it's a curse
Always gonna be a better doorman
At the best clubs
How could things be any worse?
Don't have much to go on don't want your opinion
Don't have much to gain and I ain't got much to lose
Looks like you got it all and I'd really like to
Get some
You got something I could useback to top
Minor Threat
[Originally By Minor Threat]

We're not the first, I hope we're not the last
'Cause I know we're all heading for that adult crash
The time is so little, the time belongs to us
Why is everybody in such a fucking rush?

Make do with what you have
Take what you can get
Pay no mind to us
We're just a minor threat

We're Just a Minor Threat
We're Just a Minor Threat
We're Just a Minor Threat

Early to finish, I was late to start
I might be an adult, but I'm a minor at heart
Go to college, be a man, what's the fucking deal?
It's not how old I am, it's how old I feel

Take your time
Try not to forget
We never will
We're just a minor threat

We're Just a Minor Threat
We're Just a Minor Threat
We're Just a Minor Threatback to top
Same Old Story
It's patience trying when you tell me how to live
Well you don't know anything
Your expectations are wearing thin
You won't even take a look to see another way
You aren't even listeing
Take your ideals and go away
I'm cut from the same mold
I don't read from the same old story
I'm not cut fromthe same mold
Don't know who you think I should be
I'm not cut from the same mold
I don't read from the same old story
I'm not cut from the same mold
Done with yours I'm living life for me
Tell me father, did I turn out so bad
Didn't I look up to you
Took every piece of advice you had
Go to school get a job
Send me on your way
You aren't even listening
Take your dreams and go away
For so longI have tried to understand
The qualities you thought made up a real man
Now it's time for me to find out for myself
I'm getting fed up I don't need your help
You never listen to both sides of the story
You never listen you won't listen to meback to top
Alien
Everyday convince myself of everything I can and can't believe
Abused, Confused

Everyday you feel every crime just stare up at the sky and wonder why
Afraid, Deranged

Hold on to your promise you can use it for a crutch
Stand by while all your dreams are trampled in the dust
Leave now before your slick machines begin to rust
Last chance farewell among us

Everyday you get a little bit older and everything gets hard you wonder why
Afraid, Deranged

Everyday you feel every crime an endless shocking show on the parade
Abused, Confused

Hold on to your promise you can use it for a crutch
Stand by while all your dreams are trampled in the dust
Leave now before your slick machines begin to rust
Last chance farewell among us

Everyday convince myself of everything I can and can't believe
Afraid, Deranged

Hold on to your promise you can use it for a crutch
Stand by while all your dreams are trampled in the dust
Leave now before your slick machines begin to rust
Last chance farewell among us

Among us

We're the Aliens
We're the Aliens
We're the Aliens
We're the Aliensback to top
