Track Name: Fear (For Your Life)
There's something creeping up behind you
And it's getting pretty close
Stone cold petrified from creeping up on death tonight
And your face looks like you just saw a ghost

Have you ever been in fear for your life?
Don't know if you're gonna live or die

Numb to the touch and chilled to the bone
Paralyzed, immobilized, cold and alone
I don't know where I’m going but I've got to get away
But I fear that I just can't escape
Track Name: The Rat Race
You gotta do what you gotta do
It's not always what you wanna do
There are two paths in front of you
It's up to you which one to choose

9 to 5 until I die
No surprises just another day
I'm trying to break this endless cycle
I just want to break away
Should I do things by the book
Or should I live life like a crook
Will I learn from the past?
Time is moving oh so fast

And I don't know why I try
I just don't know the reason why
I've got to move at such a fast pace day by day
I'm stuck in the rat race
And coming in last place
I've got to find another way
I wish I knew what I could do or say

You're always judged based on the company you keep
So if you hang with rats in traps you'll soon be drawn beneath
He's living the low life
He's living the high life
You're just living your life
I'm just living my life yeah
And who are you to tell me wrong from right?
When I'm just trying to make it through the night

So why do I try
I just don't know the reason why
I gotta move at such a fast pace day by day
I'm stuck in the rat race
I'm coming in last place
I gotta find another way
I wish I knew what I could do or say

Gotta take it day by day
Track Name: Straight and Narrow
I don't care about no one
No one cares for me
I tried the straight and narrow
Am I so blind I can't see?

Look at me
I've walked this road before
Check it out
How far can it go?

Am I afraid for my life?
Is this the end for me?
I look for soul and solace
What can it take from me?
Am I ashamed for my life?
Is this the end for me?
I look for soul and solace
Soon enough they'll bury me

The black sky seems so empty
The stars, they fall to the sea
Wicked winds from somewhere
Seem to be freezing me
Track Name: The Working Man
At 5:45 I come alive I wake before the sun
And I don't lay my head to rest until my work is done
I'm a working man to support my clan I do what I gotta do
And I don't have time to stop and chat cause I'm always on the move

My piece of shit car just broke down but I guess I'll fix it again
Yeah, yeah you can call me the working man

I've got callouses on my hands
And I've got wrinkles in my plans
'Cause something always comes up and my work just never ends
There's always something I've got to do
There's always something I've got to prove
And the only thing that makes it okay
Is money in my pocket at the end of the day

I leave my house before 7:00 don't get back ‘til after 10:00
Yeah, yeah you can call me the working man
I wake up, work two jobs, go to sleep, wake up and do it again
Yeah, yeah you can call me the working man

Go to work!
Track Name: Succubus
She-devil succubus, wretchin’ at my brain
Can’t get her off my mind, she’s drivin’ me insane
She’s a mean mistreater, she speaks only in lies
And she knows that I just can’t say no to those eyes

She-devil succubus drives me fuckin’ wild
(fucking wild)
She tunneled in my brain, and took over my mind
(my mind)
She-devil succubus drives me fuckin’ wild
(fucking wild)
She tunneled in my brain, and took over my mind

I lose too much sleep, and waste too much time
With her irresistibility wrapped around my mind
I thought it would be over when I threw her out the door
She-devil succubus, I can’t take this any more
Track Name: Riot
Sick of the oppression
Sick of the obsession
Sick of no protection of my rights and my possessions
Rising population
All these accusations
I'm sick of being patient
It's time to free the nation

Riot
We're gonna riot in the streets tonight

The world is gonna fall
Down upon us all
No more time to stall
Gonna get into a brawl
They push us all around
Throw us to the ground
But when you hear the sound
You know what's going down

Riot
We're gonna riot in the streets tonight
Track Name: Burn
Fake image
False idols
Bad influence
Needs guidance

You're playing with fire so you know you're gonna burn
Too ignorant to learn the way
Some people never learn
So I'll burn this fucker down
Until there's nothing left to see

1, 2, 3, 4
Burn

Fast living leads to dying
I'm trying to figure out why you've been lying

(chorus)

Get out of my face
And get out of my way

Burn
Track Name: World Of Horror
It's after midnight and the wolves are on the prowl
The demons screaming and the wolves begin to howl
There are monsters lurking just outside your door
Just another day in a world of horror

Take another step
You're walking in a wicked world
Take another breath and breathe contamination
Dancing in the acid rain
The dead will rise and walk again
And hunt us for our flesh 'til we're no more
In this world of horror

Until the sun rises I will never change
I'll keep on playing this game every night and every day
The dead will one day walk the earth as far as the eye can see
And the secret to survival is a gang mentality
Track Name: Breakaway
Sometimes I feel like I'm wasting all my time
Sitting here alone while my whole life just flashes by
Will I be remembered?
Will I be forgotten?
Thought provoking questions in a world that's turned so rotten

But we'll cross that bridge when we come to it
We've got to take it as it comes
I'm feeling trapped like a rat in a cage
Like I've got no place to go
So I pack my stuff and head on down the road

Sometimes I feel like I just need a break
People pushing all my buttons and there's only so much I can take
Sometimes I feel like I've got to get away
Things are happening all around me and I don't know what to say
Track Name: Long Lost Friend
I haven't seen you in so long
And I've been thinking that there was something wrong
I've been feeling
That we're drifting far apart
But now I think you're really gone

Now you're just a long lost friend
When will I see you again
Now you're just a long lost friend
Wondering when I'll see you again
My friend

I remember back when we were kids
Growing up together and all the stupid shit we did
Oh but I understand people lose touch over time
And that's just the way it is

Now you're just a long lost friend
When will I see you again
Now you're just a long lost friend
Wondering when I'll see you
Used to be a brother
Strength in numbers
Now I don't even know if I could tell you from another
I love you
I hate you
Track Name: Velociraptor [Bonus Track]
In a time before the dawn of man
There was a beast that ruled the land
Running in packs devouring its prey
This will be your dying day

Velociraptor whatcha gonna do
Velociraptor coming after you
Velociraptor are you the beast or the prey
Velociraptor and they're here to stay

Chew you up and spit you out before you can even blink
Eight feet tall and ten feet long
Acting only on instinct

(chorus)

With teeth and claws to rip your flesh
Who knows how much time you've got left
You better start running if you want to live
'cause they show no emotion all they do is kill
