Track Name: 90 Seconds to Heartache
Wasn't lookin for a villain but I think I found one

Partner in crime to fence my heart and hold me up with Cupid's handgun

Been thriftin words in hope that I might find an appropriate expression

You've gifted verse and melody in form of joy and inspiration

Lookin back, was it ever a question?

If I stay the track, does that make you the exception?

Would you hold my hand, together learn life's lessons?

If I make you laugh, is that not the point of creation?

Stayin busy stayin focused and I la la la along

Then my old lady swoop me up and force me to write this song

Most other men would shy away from vigilance of higher ground

I let my heart give chase and my ball and chain was never found
Track Name: Irrelevance
I feel irrelevant in every aspect of my life

Never wanted answers as much as I needed closure

A desperation move, I threw my chips on an all-in

When heart and soul lose focus and drift to full disclosure

Never wanted comfort, merely needed contact

There goes the content spirit I'm never gonna get back

Validation for the countless hours that I've spent

Hunched over empty canvas, working to be relevant

Whoever had a clue that making it would be so hard?

Without ample work ethic, you'll never get that green card

I'm feeling like I'm lost at sea

Just wandering so aimlessly

Step back to watch this scenery unfold
Track Name: Occupy This
I was raised in a country where the rich consume the poor
A life of disparity
You watch and wonder, "Could I ever change anything?"
So you sit back and listen as the strong weed out the meek
Without the funds, you'll never fix anything
What is your purpose?
A world where I am proud to bear young, not this place

We dream of a better world, a place where we can find peace
We know the difference between insanity and trying to plead a case
We're told the melody was ringing false before, until it starts ringing true again
One old skeleton key will never open doors to a better life just around the bend

So many people will discover that the wolves don't cover well
They'll eat your income, your hopes and desires
It isn't science, they reap everything for themselves
And call it progress

We dream of a better world, a place where we can find peace
We know the difference between insanity and trying to plead a case
We're told the melody was ringing false before, until it starts ringing true again
One old skeleton key will never open doors to a better life just around the bend

If you never look around, you'll never see
What's really going down with you and me
Track Name: Lockbox
We've all got our hobbies, mine's playing guitar

I love playing rugby, but that won't get me far

I can't pay my bills if my limbs all get broke

I need health insurance, but I drink and I smoke

I hope I'm alive to see the day

The pleasure that I find in such tiny things

It's part of the reason that I dance when I sings

Can't argue with loving me everyday life

I spend all my spare time enjoying no strife

I hope I'm alive to see the day

I just can't bother asking for a helping hand

I'll be okay on my own

Own, own, help me
Track Name: NSA (Not Sufficient Answers)
If I were out there, giving up my life

For those who don't care, I'd say it's not right

We're fighting false wars, extremist soundbites

For fat old rich bores sending (soldiers) to die

One death is a tragedy, one million's a statistic

It's all a comedy of epic proportions

The unknown thousands we'll never mourn for

The ones we did send return from horror

The scars which they bear so we can live free

The feds just don't care about our civil liberties

One death is a tragedy, one million's a statistic

It's all a comedy of epic proportions

Restore the fourth (Give me back my rights)

Don't make us mourn (An empty sacrifice)

The military spending is out of control

The troops they're sending to scatter the whole

Martial law declared, combatant citizenry

I would be more scared, but it don't affect me
