Track Name: Nightmare on Munk St.
Oh, This is how we roll
six mother fuckers and one french troll
this aint no wolf pack; this aint no TRE
Better Wake Up, Better Wake Up
From your nightmare on Munk St.
Track Name: Lookout
I've pitched my tent, spent my days looking out to sea
Keep one fire burning one waiting patiently
Me and my pal, and one thousand just like us
Spread along the coast in our makeshifts lighthouse
These days go on, the fog rolling out to sea
A telescope a pack of smokes we wait patiently
Until one day the fog rolls in with the tide
Bringing with it a silouette and a shock to the eyes

Light the fire let's make a move
Forget the smokes the telescopes forget the food
We got to go warn others of what's in store
We got to go it's time for war

Now I know kinda how you felt
Impending doom looms off the continental shelf
Still one hundred miles away
Go to scream but you can't even say

Light the fire let's make a move
Forget the smokes the telescopes forget the food
We got to go warn others of what's in store
We got to go it's time for war
Track Name: Two Weeks
I get out of my day, like every fucking bed
Witha ringing dislexic pounding in my head
A rotting gut ache insomnia can't fight
Funny thing is, I didn't drink last night

So long, it's been fun, it's also been a while since I've seen the sun
I don't need you derpy derp derp derp, I've got more than one

HERE'S MY TWO WEEKS
That's too bad
HERE'S MY TWO WEEKS
This makes me sad
HERE'S MY TWO WEEKS
I knew this would not last
HERE'S MY TWO WEEKS
SHOVE EM UP YOUR ASS

We did everything you said
and every goddamned thing you asked
Never questioned any of it
But considering our past

never thought, we'd just give in
never thought we'd just give up, oh fuck no
we stick it out throught thick and thin
and thin and back again we all go

So long, it's been fun, it's also been a while since I've seen the sun
I don't need you derpy derp derp derp, I've got more than one
Track Name: 11th Concussion
I get up every single fucking day, the words change but the thoughts remain the same.
The gun's loaded and the trigger's cocked, but I can't get my eye ont he scope to make my shot.
Living my life won't keep me sane, I need to occupy my brain.
I go out every single fucking night, but I can't seem to find the strength to return a smile.
I go home and rest my head and return to the everyday routine I've come to dread.
Track Name: Duggle Black
Minature conversations about the sun and rain
Make for splitting head aches and peircing ear rings
I can't imagine why you'd ask me again
Another day for me is just another fifty cents

I can't imagine, raising a family
On a salary not big enough for me
But I guess this is all they'll know
Pennyless, pension-less
Can't afford a home

One big two tiered pension club
and not a single word
about the future of tempoary part time work
Just some bullshit nonsense
to distract this ageing lot
from their future conditions
and of the past they fought

I can't imagine, raising a family
On a salary not big enough for me
But I guess this is all they'll know
Pennyless, pension-less
Can't afford a home
Track Name: Mind of the Mob
Eating lies like pigs from a trough
You sit at your desk while you bitch and you scoff
You'll never get it you'll never know
About the man who works his skin to the bone

On strike in '45, had to walk off the job to keep me alive
Stay on your side and I'll stay on mine
I'll fight to the death before crossing the line
Track Name: Support Your Local Prison
Lie awake at the sound of the bell
This regimented shuffle's got me down
A murderer breathing down my neck
KEPT IN CHECK by his ankle noose
Our beloved lock step

Up at dawn, revelry, the prison around me differs from my dreams
Only in the most subtle subtleties, never mind these walls I'm heading over seas
I've never been one for lines, I've never been one for sand
I never once thought that killing another, would ever make you a man
BUT HERE I AM

And what the kings says goes
Our wives and daughters know
That when the king says go
WHEN THE KINGS SAYS GO
We'll be the first to know

Far from home in a foreign hell
No witches brew, no concocted spell
Could take away these anxieties
So far from home, so far from ease

Bombs dropping over head, stuck in a trench tucked into bed
Can't decipher Can't comprehend the reasons for being here to defend
A freedom so obvious, a freedom so good and pure
A freedom that's easier to export while at home remains so obscure

And what the king says goes
Our wives and daughters know
That when the king says go
WHEN THE KING SAYS GO WE GO
Track Name: In & Out
In & out, and up and down, and back and forth all day
Move this here and place that there, that's how we earn our pay
In & out and up and down and back and forth i pray
To see the day we run this place on our own and our own way

We run the world
Why not run our lives
We temps we need to make a stand
ORGANIZE
We run the world
Why not run our lives
We temps we need to make a stand
START OUR LIVES
Track Name: FJH
What have we here, a chance to get along
Forget your fears, togeather we are strong

These lines they were drawn by the powers that be
And some dumb fools they follow them so blindly
United all of us could potentially
Rid our world of the hate that divides us

We are young, they are old
And so I've been told all we have to do is out live them
But if we fail, In our salvation
It's cuz of too mant lives without purpose or dedication

This was a joke, played on the poor
To divide and conquer
Let's do away, with the fear and hate
save each other
Track Name: Read, Write, Regurgitate
I'm no volunteer and I don't get paid
My only raise is a passing grade
Strip mined my mind for everything they need
So many options none for me

Stick it out, stick it out
You'll get by
Stick it out, stick it out
Just pass the time

It don't take much to climb this ladder
Stick with the other for the better
CAN'T KEEP UP? That's too bad
Off pace off time off track from your comrades

Stick it out, stick it out
You'll get by
Stick it out, stick it out
Just pass the time

Because the world's beautiful outside of factory walls
Life gets better when you're freed from the halls
Time to stretch your legs after years of crawling on the floor
NO MORE NO MORE
I'm running out the door

If there's one thing you take away
Practice patience learn to wait
Over production assembled fine
Be the next to jump in line

Stick it out, stick it out
You'll get by
Stick it out, stick it out
Just pass the time

Because the world's beautiful outside of factory walls
Life gets better when you're freed from the halls
Time to stretch your legs after years of crawling on the floor
NO MORE NO MORE
I'm running out the door
Track Name: Night Shifts
Punch in punch out, I'd rather punch the clock
Friday comes and I get to stop
I get a breath of life for just two days
Then it's back to slaving my nights away

I never see my family
The nocturnal life is not for me
They tell me I should have to fears
But they're taking away my golden years

My days pass me by
You say that I'm lazy
But I've put in my night shifts

Their eyes they burn right through my back
They're watching to see if I crack
I wipe my brow from the rising heat
Soon enough I'm on the street

FLY RIGHT STRAIGHTEN UP
Your open mind had best be shut
Break your back and then we'll see
If we compensate your misery

Our days pass us by
you say that we're lazy
But we've put in our night shifts
Track Name: Fly on the Casket Wall
My life was a footnote in time, so many friends I never knew I had.
Six feet down, now it's my time to shine.
Look down your nose with a crooked smile, and fill your eyes with pure denial.

Open your mouth and reassure, recall the days that never were.
You've talked your shit, you've had your fun.
Now I'm a saint, because my days are done.

My life was completely off time, the ravaging of age that drew these lines.
Separate, serve that's a divide.
Six fee down, now it's my time to shine.
