Track Name: Bailout!
The radio is blasting news bout today
Another CEO that wants to get paid
While the workers are out on the street
Trying to keep it up on just ends meat

When do I get
When do we get
When do we get
When do I get
My blank check!

A broken industry, an empty lot of cars
No black check can fix it, signed by a czar
While Detroit is burning to the ground
Houses aren’t occupied, no one can be found

When do I get
When do we get
When do we get
When do I get
My blank check!

(Bailout!)
What for!
(Bailout!)
No more!
(Bailout!)
Fuck your!
(Bailout!)
Track Name: Baraka
The world is changing
So open your eyes
Look out the window
It is no surprise

No more superpower
No more tragedy
No more planned disaster
That’s the world I see

Baraka!

Time is forward motion
We must look ahead
Go beyond mindless routine
Before you are dead

So, think about the future
Always embrace the past
We’re only single grain of
Sand filled hour glass

Baraka!

Material possessions
Uncomfortably numb
Ask the tough questions
Where did you get that from?

Baraka!
Baraka!
Track Name: Die Tryin'
Once again I’m faced with the fact
That I’m on my own
No one’s watching my back
I’m seeing clear skies ahead
Even in this PNW dread

Once again I’m faced with the fact
That I gotta keep my eyes forward
There is no looking back
Black clouds are clearing up ahead
They better clear up, before I start seeing the red

Keep on
Rockin’
Or Die tryin’

Keep on
Rockin’
Or Die tryin’

I’m seeing clear skies ahead
I’m seeing clear skies ahead
I’m seeing clear skies ahead
I’m seeing clear skies ahead
Track Name: Edge of the World
Rain, rain, go away
Come again, another day
Rain rain, go away
Come again, another day

East mountain, north sound
West ocean, sea-town
East mountain, north sound
West ocean, sea-town

Ka!
La
Ka!

Kalakala
Kalakala
Kalakala
Kalakala

Kalakala
Kalakala

Last stop, no fear
Edge of the world, right here
Last stop, no fear
Edge of the world, right here!
Track Name: On My Mind
It was hard watching you leave the train
Kept hoping you would turn the other way
Three days just wasn’t enough
These next few days are gonna be tough

This morning cup of coffee
Has never gone so slow
The second hand on my watch
Is the only time I know

On my mind
On my mind
On my mind
She’s on my mind, yeah hey!

Now you’re back home working for your dad
I’m thinking bout the times we had
That song keeps repeating in my head
Keep in touch you said

This morning cup of coffee
Has never gone so slow
The second hand on my watch
Is the only time I know

On my mind
On my mind
On my mind
She’s on my mind, yeah hey!

I like the way you look at me
I like the way you talk to me
I like the way you look at me
I like the way you talk to me

Prechorus

Chorus
Track Name: Bush Fire
Trouble’s on the rise
I better hide my head
You’re playing with fire
Beneath your own bed

One more day to live my life
One more day to fall asleep at night
One more day to live so free
Just let me be

The world has turned around
What’s up has now falled down
Pieces scare your name
It’ll never be the same

One more day safe and sound
One more day not in the lost n’ found
One more day just like the last
Learn from the past

Bridge

One more day to live my life
One more day to fall asleep at night
One more day to live so free
Just let me be

One more day safe and sound
One more day not in the lost n’ found
One more day just like the last
Learn from the past
Track Name: Utility Knife
I’m gonna take it in stride
I’m gonna take it with pride
You’re not the one cut me down
Just one frame of my life
Not enough to cause me strife
Pictures fade over time

Situations come and go
Motivation sometimes low
Expectations have hit the floor
But just you wait and see

Watch as the tables turn
Watch as your lessons learned
This ain’t no picnic anymore
The floodgates have opened wide
No place to run and hide
You deserve what’s coming to you

Situations come and go
Motivation sometimes low
Expectations have hit the floor
But just you wait and see

Situations come and go
Motivation sometimes low
Expectations have hit the floor
But just you wait and see
Track Name: Career Opportunites
They offered my the office, offered me the shop
They said I'd better take anything they got
Do you wanna make tea at the BBC?
Do you wanna be, you really wanna be a cop?

Career opportunities, the ones that never knock
Every job they offer, is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunities, the ones that never knock

I hate the army and I hate the RAF
I don't wanna go fighting in the tropical heat
I hate the civil service rule
I won't open letter bombs for you

Career opportunities, the ones that never knock
Every job they offer, is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunities, the ones that never knock

Tree climber!
IT man!
Kitchen assistant

I don't understand!

They're gonna have to introduce conscription
And they're gonna have to take away my prescriptions
If they wanna get me making toys
If they wanna get me, well I got no choice

Career opportunities, the ones that never knock
Every job they offer, is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunities, the ones that never knock

Career
Career
Career
And they're never gonna knock!
Track Name: Destroy Your TV
Who’s sponsoring your life?
How much do you sell?
That barcode’s straight from hell
Destroy your TV
Throw it out the door
Now that’s a show

Destroy Your TV
Destroy Your TV
Destroy Your TV
Destroy You TV

Subliminal adverts
Running through your head
I’d rather be dead
Trash the trash
And go outside
Before you die

Destroy Your TV

Who’s sponsoring your life?
How much do you sell?
That postcard’s straight from Hell
Enjoy reality
Without a fee
Destroy your TV!
Track Name: Under The Streetlight
The punks are crawling out tonight
The punks are crawling out tonight
From outta the gutter
They’re spilling out under the streetlight

First street, down in Sodo
To under the monorail
Up pike street on the hill
Punk bands always on the bill

Downtown in market square
Ballard ave is never bare
The hammered man holds it down
Punk scene in my hometown

The punks are crawling out tonight
The punks are crawling out tonight
From outta the gutter
They’re spilling out under the streetlight

Me and James went to the show
Mobbin’ with the SPO
Each band was outta control
The Funhouse is the spot to go

Op Ivy blasted all night long
The dj played every song
Mystery drinks dropped in my hand
Cheers to the night, cheers to the bands

Bridge
Chorus

Dustin came from far away
Tearing down my practice space
Charlie says he’s the drummer for you
Almost done, that made two

James Dallas Harvey
Saw the ad, responded to me
He didn’t wanna play tuned down
Now the Filibusters are in town
