Zach would to thank Michael Cooper, Cameron Patterson, Jeffrey Podolski, James Robinson, Chris Wood, and all the rest who have lent me equipment and instruments during this process so that this album could shimmer the best that it could; David Sarge, for repairing amps and other equipment when they needed it so that we could get right back to recording as fast as possible; Karla, Izzy, Pat and Robert for making recording in a barn and suburban living room that much more doable; and, of course, the band for being kind enough to ask him to record with them and also being talented and professional in spite of their youth, thus making my job much easier throughout the album process. You guys rock. Keep it up.

Track Name: The Class
The classroom’s the last room to get the truth
The scream that comes from my heart, and from the youth
We don't gain knowledge we just memorize
That’s why our test scores dwindle in size
Even better yet, they can’t believe their eyes
When they see our math scores are number twenty five
Let's increase our spending in education
Let's instead teach differently within the nation

From three to fourteen, I think back to then
To the mold that my family fit me in
To what my mom wanted me to be
Obedient and straight, giving praise to thee
Then from 14 till now something clicked in my head
I started thinking for myself, I was no longer brain dead
I emerged from the mold my family put me in
I’m Bi, disobedient, and there’s no such thing as sin!

Sound on!
Don’t conform, break your molds, think for yourself don’t let them think for you
Don’t conform, break your molds, raise your fists and rise up with us.

Let’s talk about DARE, D-A-R-E
Drugs and alcohol resistance, “Don’t smoke pot like me!”
They all talk about the good things with drugs
How much they sell for, “Man I wanna be a thug.”
All they did was brainwash our heads with information
And make us sing songs to further our education
But the thing that bothers me, most of all
Is our officer got caught, smoking in the hall.
Track Name: Street Lights
I was wondering, what you were wondering
just ask me I’ll tell you anything
I’m just mumbling and I’m stumbling
my way through her life

Oh can’t you see, I really want to see
all the truth that’s bubbling inside of me
But I walk away, why do I walk away
I had so much to say why do I walk away

Street lights on city nights but
I’m lost I’m lost
I’ll keep you by my side but
I’m lost I’m lost

Do like my dress, I said yes
overcome by a feeling in my chest
But we’ve got to stand out of the rest
I’m ready, if you’re ready

You keep running, just keep running.
Track Name: Here All Week feat. Hybrid Soul - Land of the Free
(The end is coming fast?) Nah the end is right here
The CEO pigs are just masked puppeteers
Victimize the worker into the soldier the con
Cause the arms dealers won from the blood of Iran
Middle class don’t have to worry about the poor?
Think again, the money’s in the corporate whore
Who then funds what we call politicians
Puppets for the harlots that’s their position see
This is capitalism for the top one minority
Screwing the majority protecting their authority
Feudalism in a different word
The bourgeois hold us all by the chord
(And then they) vote to benefit their dissipation
Sap our sensations for their own elation nation
With a dose of catalyzed manipulation that we all call hope
Till we drink till we drop the only way to cope

(America, a democracy?)
Maybe what both wings see
(America Land of the free?)
Not even back in 1783
(America land of choice?)
If you choose to use your own voice
(America, land of the free?)
Haha what a hypocrisy

Now here’s a broken system called college son
Enroll, get a job, and then you’re done
But wait! There’s a teeny tiny thing called debt
Something our country doesn’t see as a threat yet
37 K is what you gotta pay
Even with no job you still gotta pay
(But wealth and prosperity is where they’ll lead ya)
So said Columbus to natives aboard Santa Maria
But here’s the thing if you want a chance
You gotta give the school system a lapdance
In a trance to be someone you toil to be
But you don’t work hard, no you do something easy
You suck the cock of the man holding crore
Secure the odds to be something more
Achieve the life that you’re searching for
Just to be another bolt in the machine of war

t needs to end...
It needs to be...
A land full of liberty
The land of the free
But I can’t do it alone
No I can’t do it alone
Would you rise up with me
Or wouldja stay put in your homes?!

When protectors become judge,
The jury, and execution
It’s one big fuck you
To our very constitution
But I can’t do it alone
No I can’t do it alone
Come rise up with me
Do not postpone

The greed needs to change?
No the greed needs to end
It’s the only way for our country
To ever mend
But I can’t do it alone
No I can’t do it alone
Will you rise up with me
Or stay put in your homes?

But it’s hard to change something
that was built on that
When the poor man dies
The white collars get fat
But I can’t do it alone
No I can’t do it alone
Come rise up with me
And end this hypocrisy

The land of the free is afforded by the rich
The land of the free for the poor is a ditch
Track Name: Plastic Lullaby
I’ll walk outside soaked in gasoline
I’ll burn alive so my message is seen
cause’ no one cares unless someone dies
and will sing the plastic lullaby

Forgot the letters back inside my house
Shouldn’t waste a match when I’m doused
Cause no one cares unless someone dies
And all want to sing a plastic lullaby

A candle a candle
To light me to bed
A pillow a pillow
To suck in my head
The moon is as sleepy
As sleepy can be
The stars are all pointing
Their fingers at me

Walk with a noose sheathed around my neck
They call it leash and they’ll call me a pet
Cause no one cares when they know we’ll die
Unsung dogma of the lullaby

I walk with god but I don’t belong
I knew it since he made me wear a thong
Cause no one cares when you’re the outcry
I’ll sing alone the plastic lullaby

The fervid lover sits on the bed, towards the edge
With his golden ash tray, and a coal shining near her mouth
in washed out radiance, quite enough to overlook.

She ashed her medicine, watching the cigarette tears
glide to her thigh, bruised by that man with a shared name
before deciding that she’ll stay.
Just a coward anyway;

Pain came every time the little boy heard his name
from the monster who changed when the moon rose over the edge
of coliseum mountains, holding barbarity in his eyes and fetor in his mouth.

But when the sun rose oh how he loved and looked
in admiration, telling him “Don’t shed any tears.
There’s nothing to fear.
Why shed your tears?”

I put therapy loaded with copper pills in my mouth
and gave it a blowjob, trying to decide in a pool of confused tears
my emotions, and if they were stewed or straight edge.

I put the syringe down for just a moment and looked
beside me, analyzing the plastic cuff with a familiar name
before deciding that I’ll stay.
I’m a Fucking coward anyway;

Just a tree swaying in the concrete jungle
Just a tree swaying in the concrete jungle
A tree swaying in the concrete jungle
A tree swaying in the concrete jungle
A tree swaying in the concrete jungle
A tree swaying in the concrete jungle
A tree swaying in the concrete jungle
Just a tree swaying in the middle of the concrete jungle

We sleep tonight
We sleep tonight
Hold your torches high
'Cause we sleep tonight!
Track Name: Simply Us
Let's walk along the railroad tracks
And talk about the lasting path
Until the train comes in our way
Shall we stay?

Tomorrow blaze a ghosting trail
Tell stories when we're rich and frail
Till finished day when sun ballets
Shall we stay

Soon we'll run an endless race
Today we'll wander into space
Don't take a step, just fall on back
Shall we stay?

Future, fade in masquerade
Past and now enjoy the fame
Of other plans and crowd-less hands
Wait for it, wait for it (they say)

Can you show me what is real?
Can you show me how to feel?
Can I stand up when I’m walking out?
When will pleasure become pain?
Will we hold that little gain?
Will I be worth all your time and doubt?

On Easter we'll both run away
And finally find our saving grace
With bags of tea till Jubilee
Stay with me

I'll hug you till my blood is dry
And love you till I cannot cry
The road we take is no mistake
Please stay with me

Can you show me what is real?
Can you show me how to feel?
Can I stand up when I’m walking out?
When will pleasure become pain?
Will we hold that little gain?
Will I be worth all your time and doubt?

Can you can you can you?
Save me from the world
And impending fate?
Will you guide me along
As pleasure blurs the pain?
The cocktails I kiss
Will I see Styx?
Will I see Styx?
Will I see Styx?

“It’s simply us!”
I declare aloud
“The best of friends
The one I can’t live without”
No mom and dad
There’s no need to discuss
It’s just simply us
Simply us

Can you show me what is real?
Can you show me how to feel?
Can I stand up when I’m walking out?
When will pleasure become pain?
Will we hold that little gain?
Will I be worth all your time and doubt?

Can you show me what is real?
Can you show me how to feel?
Can I stand up can I stand up again?
When will lonely become fame?
And why can’t we just have our names?
On the doors at each others place?

Can you show me what is real!
Can you show me how to feel!
Am I worth all you time!

Can you can you can you?
Save me from the world
And impending fate?
Will you guide me along
As pleasure blurs the pain?
The cocktails I kiss
Will I see Styx?
Will I see Styx?
Will I see Styx?

“It’s simply us!”
I declare aloud
“The best of friends
The one I can’t live without”
No mom and dad
There’s no need to discuss
It’s just simply us
Simply us
Track Name: Brighter Times
Well it happened one December
The snow can't cover my new smile
Your shorter times can be made longer
You've got me stuck so I'll stay here awhile

You only trust them when it's not true
That's why your world is one shade of blue

We need brighter times

So what if it's over
So what did we do
You search and search for a key but
The door's unlocked just walk through

So please sing to me your love songs
You paint the sweetest version of me
Time may always be there answer
But there's no one to answer me
Track Name: You Keep Missing
You’re a beach without an ocean
You make me so hot but I can’t cool off
the narrative of the Forgotten
fairy tales wrapped under your breast

Light my candle with fountains water
You’re my guiding light to stray off course
But still you have me oh yes you have me
Lead me around the bend your slaughterhouse curve

Tell Me Tell Me
Did you find your brighter days?
Tell Me Tell Me
Is this only for display
Tell Me Tell Me
Is evanesce what’s on your mind
Tell Me Tell Me
‘Cause it’s on mine

I’m locked in
your system
so why do you keep missing?
I’ve caught on your symptoms
but you seem unremitting
I’m locked in
your system
so why do you keep missing?
I’m locked in
your system

I thought you found me now you surround me
Drowning gets harder when there’s too much air
We are just walking in a yellow brick circle
But there’s no Kansas to make me look back

I’ve drugged up
You fucked up
Don’t try to press your luck
It’s about time we said enough
I’ve tried out
your system
but you just keep on missing
I’ve tried out
your system
Track Name: Satisfaction Distraction
Satisfaction’s
A distraction
From the colors of
Ms. Mary Marmalean

And every time that we kissed
an opportunity missed
To ask another one
Will you go out with me?

And time and time again I saw
Her dull summer turn into fall
Her orange hair and red thighs
Satisfaction distraction

And time and time again I saw
Her dull summer turn into fall
Her orange hair and red thighs

Whoah
It's a siren's love
She draws in my tide
Her song stuck in my mind
Whoah
It’s a siren’s love
Her door is seen
Whoah
It's a siren's love
She draws in my tide
Her song stuck in my mind
Whoah
It's a siren's love
Her door is seen

That’s my Marmaleen

Whatever she says
I’m shred to pieces
Green is stop and red is go
Will you will you let me know?

Ms Labyrinth
Gave me two hints
Five-o five-o
Number I'll never know

But I’m getting over
My four leaf clover
And I
Why

She makes me feel
So high
She's my
She's my
Track Name: This I Know
Freedom rings an old cracked bell, and inside it fell
many confused teenage dreams
Someday we’ll all be bolder, they tried but it got colder
don’t complain the weather’s fine

From my seat next to his, we could see everything spin
we watched that world through unphased eyes
You could say that he was lazy, he’s really only crazy
we sat together and spun a while

Ain’t it strange to watch things fall apart
Funny how just when you thought you had it all, it doesn’t matter anyway
Ain’t it strange as we look out across
Funny how things that we thought were so far away and breaking through my window

This I know
it’s not the way that it's supposed to go
I’m leaving
just one last chance you’re still breathing
Come closer
the pictures fade as you’re older
Believe me
I’m not always what I’m gonna be

So what are you talking about? Digging through lost and founds to find
it’s been behind you
So we can stop running around, it’s not your turn but so what you’re leaving
and I’m leaving too
