Track Name: Rural Savages
Its 1 a.m on a Monday night
They're hiding out of sight
Breaking into abandoned buildings
They don't know wrong from right
Its their home they have nowhere to go
Trailer parks and broken homes
Hideouts out in the trees
Cigarettes and amphetamines


Alone in their thoughts
Alone in their minds
Trapped in a waste of time
Alone
With nowhere to be and nowhere to go
Alone in their homes
Alone with their friends
And at school with the other kids
Savage they are
And they're never gonna get out

Alive they feel on the street tonight
Another alley, another fight
Another run in with the cops
Or passed out on the sidewalk
Red lights trailing close behind
And theres no escape they'l find
So at night they creep and roam
Endless cycle of feeling totally alone


Alone in their thoughts
Alone in their minds
Trapped in a waste of time
Alone
With nowhere to be and nowhere to go
Alone in their homes
Alone with their friends
And at school with the other kids
Savage they are
And they're never gonna get out Alive

Rural wasteland
Do you know where your children are?
On the street

They're Savages
Track Name: Get Hurt / Waste Of Space
Did you forget
Who you were fighting?
Because it just seems like you're fighting me
The Hate and the judgement
Splits us apart
But you're too high and mighty to realize Its a disease

Yell at kids
And then you ask
Why?
They close their mind so fast
Think you make things better
But in reality you just fuck it up

Kids have nowhere to go
You threw em out of your shows
Got you and your elitist crowd
But who the fuck wants you around?

Yell at kids and then you ask
Why?
They close their mind so fast
You're a burnout
You're a waste of space


Why don't you just stay out of our fucking way?
Track Name: Violent Crime
Another school shooting
People are dyeing
On the TV

Keep us paranoid
Keep us worried
You and me

Why is it
The same old faces?
Could it be

If they were black
They wouldn't show us right?
Cant happen to me
Track Name: Lay Around
Lie on the floor you know I lay around all day

Lie on the floor you know I lay around all day

Nothing to do

Nothing to say

Lie on the floor you know I lay around all day

Got a six pack, I'm OK

Lie on the floor you know I lay around all day

Nothing to do

Nothing to say

Lie on the floor you know I lay around all day

Lay around
Track Name: Anxiety
I just wanna leave but theres nowhere else to go
Anxiety it grips me puke my guts up on the floor
I just wanna leave but I'm trapped in this place
My heart is palpitating
My wits are fucking crazed
Racing around, my brain is at a stall
All I see is darkness and these fucking cramped walls
Racing around I got nobody else
Im a danger to others
Im a danger to myself

Anxietys' beaten me
I look around, reds all I see
I race around
Im beaten down
I cant even fucking breathe

Staring at these empty walls

Staring at these empty walls
Track Name: Santa Carla
City lights over the water tonight
Under the boardwalk you can hear the sighs
And the laughter
Coming from the nearby carousel
But every city's got its story to tell

Some kid went missing last week
Lost to the ocean or some blood sucking freak
They all come up when the sun goes down
A trve cvlt of the underground


You don't wanna be dead
You better watch your back
No matter which way you choose
This city's gonna fuckin take you too

And all the tourists on the tilt-o-whirl
In the murder capital of the world
Somethin is creepin up on you
Somethins creepin and theres nowhere left to run


You don't wanna be dead
You better watch your back
No matter which way you choose
This city's gonna fuckin take you too
Track Name: Skate The Waste
Most people come to see the sights
But the suns so hot itl burn the retinas out of your eyes
Smoke so thick you cant breathe without a mask
The sun is blood red and the sky is raining ash


No hope for us
No end in sight
We skate the wastes
We will survive


Skaters here roam in packs
Fun shape decks and baseball bats
Endless cycle, endless drought
Endless pollution from the south


No hope for us
No end in sight
We skate the wastes
We will survive


Concrete waves and sewer pipes
Empty pools, 30 days of night
Nomadic, shredding, thrasher tribes
Skate the wastes
Skate or fucking die


No more suburban sprawl

No more beach front property

No more beverly hills

Paradise
Track Name: Flaws
Flaws on my skin
Flaws on my body

Flawed in what I am
Flawed in what I see
Flawed in my head
Flawed in being me

Flaws in my head
Flaws on my body

Im not your fucking machine

Im not here for you to label me
Im not here for you to make money off of me

Fuck you

Im not here for you to label me
Im not here for you to make money off of me

Flaws on me

Flaws on me
Track Name: White Wash
Wash the world
With Purell
Lysol detergent
It'l sell
Bleed the planet till its dry
Stimulate kids until they're fried

Build the fortress
Build a wall
Pave it all over with a shopping mall
Stock the fridges
Crysco slime
Double bypass
Sewer grime

White wash the planet
White wash the world
White wash the people
Make em all sterile

White wash the planet
White wash the world
White wash the people
Make em all sterile

White wash

White wash

White wash

White fucking wash
Track Name: Desperation
DESPERATION

Im backed up against the wall again
The pressure's building in my head
Sometimes I wish that I was dead
Try to float but I sink instead

All the time
All the time
All the time trapped in my mind
Give me violence give me crime
Gimme an answer
Give me a fucking sign

Desperate Im paralyzed
Desperate/All thats on my mind
Desperation wont leave me blind
I wont go down
Not this fucking time

Stab in the back its whats in store
Another knife I cant take much more
In my mind, in my heads' a war
The struggle inside
Inside the core

All the time
All the time
All the time trapped in my mind
Now I've got a fucking axe to grind

Gimme an answer
Give me a fucking sign


Desperate Im paralyzed
Desperate/All thats on my mind
Desperation wont leave me blind
I wont go down
Not this fucking time
Track Name: Park Pig
I just came here to skate
I didn't come here to instigate
A fight with a rent-a-cop
Who thinks they own a concrete lot

Treat us like
We're all scum
Clothesline kids and hassle bums
You're no a cop
You're just a fuckin

Park pig
Fuck you
Park pig
Fuck you

Youre just a jock who found a city job
Now you fuck with kids for fun
Power tripping macho scum
To weak to have a badge or gun

Treat us like
We're all scum
Clothesline kids and hassle bums
Your're not a cop
You're just a fuckin

Park pig
Fuck you
Park pig
You're not a cop

Park pig

You're not a fucking cop
Track Name: 122 Hours of Fear
"Be quiet or be killed!"
he said.

In front of you and in front of me.
He made the pilot get on his knees.
Made him crawl, made him whimper,
Made him cry out for his mother.

Wow! What a show!
122 Hours Of Fear.
Wow! What a show!
122 Hours Of Fear.
122 Hours Of Fear.
122.

"You better shut up and listen!"
he said.

Danger, danger, danger, Mr. Schumann
We are in a hurry, Mr. Schumann
What are the odds, dear Jorgen?
Am I disturbing You?

Wow! What a show!
122 Hours Of Fear.
Wow! What a show!
122 Hours Of Fear.
122 Hours Of Fear.
122.
Track Name: Bottom Out
I cant erase the scars

I cant no matter how hard I try
Cut deep and left behind
Used up and out to dry

Cant blame you for the things you do
Because you got your struggle too
But I wont be around
When you finally fall through


Alright this is how its gonna be
Youre not the person you used to be
You're treading water
And you're bound
And your bound to sink
And when you finally bottom out
You'll be another face in the crowd
Wave good by to the person you were
And watch the bridge fuckin burn

Oah you think you're so high of class
Lets see how long that'l last
When it all goes sinking slow
Then it all goes sinking fast

And your'e all on your own
And you feel the pressure grow
And you've finally reached your lowest low
Il watch the final...


Alright this is how its gonna be
Youre not the person you used to be
You're treading water
And you're bound
And your bound to sink
And when you finally bottom out
You'll be another face in the crowd
Wave good by to the person you were
And watch the bridge fuckin burn


Watch the bridge burn
