1. ASKING FOR IT

Can I have a moment of your time?
Just a single second so you see
That, indeed, we'll be leaving you behind
Far across that line
Turn it up so you can hear the bells
Crashing through the clouds
Acid rain down the drain
We know all too well
It's a living hell

Careful what you say and who you say it, who you say it to
Careful what you say and who you say it to
Maybe you talk too much
And you were asking for it, asking for it, asking
You can blame bad luck
But you were asking for it, asking for it, asking
When all is said and done
You need to tie your tongue
Cause when you spit on everyone
You are, you are you know you're asking for it, asking for it, asking

Caught up in the gutter once again
Thrashing through the mud
Flowin' lies, cuttin' ties
Til the sidewalk ends
And the truth begins
Power through the point of no return
Famously deranged
All the same hope you change
If the worm is gonna turn
It's none of my concern

Careful what you say and who you say it, who you say it to
Careful what you say and who you say it to
Maybe you talk too much
And you were asking for it, asking for it, asking
You can blame bad luck
But you were asking for it, asking for it, asking
When all is said and done
You need to tie your tongue
Cause when you spit on everyone
You are, you are you know you're asking for it, asking for it, asking

You are, you are, you are, you are
You are asking for it
You are, you are, you are, you are
You are asking for it

Careful what you say and who you say it, who you say it to
Careful what you say and who you say it to
Maybe you talk too much
And you were asking for it, asking for it, asking
You can blame bad luck
But you were asking for it, asking for it, asking
When all is said and done
You need to tie your tongue
Cause when you spit on everyone
You are, you are you know you're asking for it, asking for it, asking

You know you're asking for it, asking for it
You know you're asking for it, asking


2. CUT THE CORD

(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom, follow me)
(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom) Cut it!
(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom, follow me)
(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom)

Let me tell you, I'm vicious
Not pass-aggressive
I got my finger on my pulse, staring straight into a hole and I get it
And I'm a savage
It's automatic
I got a way of making noise, the power to destroy with no static

Cause victory is all you need
So cultivate and plant the seed
Hold your breath and count to ten, just count to ten

I'm gonna make it rain, so ring the bell
I know it all too well
Switchblade on the edge of your wrist
Can I get a witness? (Witness)
Cause agony brings no reward
For one more hit and one last score
Don't be a casualty, cut the cord

(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom, follow me) Cut the cord
(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom)

You gotta feel courage
Embrace possession
If it was easier to shatter everything that ever mattered
But it's not, because it's your obsession
Be a fighter, backbone, desire
Complicated and it stings, but we both know what it means
And it's time to get real and inspired

Cause victory is all you need
So cultivate and plant the seed
Hold your breath and count to ten, just count to ten, just count to ten

I'm gonna make it rain, so ring the bell
I know it all too well
Switchblade on the edge of your wrist
Can I get a witness? (Witness)
Cause agony brings no reward
For one more hit and one last score
Don't be a casualty, cut the cord

Cut it
Cut it

Cause victory is all you need
So cultivate and plant the seed
Hold your breath and count to ten, just count to ten

I'm gonna make it rain, so ring the bell
I know it all too well
Switchblade on the edge of your wrist
Can I get a witness? (Witness)
Cause agony brings no reward
For one more hit and one last score
Don't be a casualty, cut the cord
Don't be a casualty, cut the cord

(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom, follow me) Cut the cord
(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom, follow me, me, me)


3. STATE OF MY HEAD

That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head
That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head

It's been a long bumpy ride sittin' back in the saddle
It's time to get down, dirty up our knees in the battle
Come on, round up the boys, gonna make the walls rattle

Oh, our flag is tattered
And our bones are shattered
But it doesn't matter
‘Cause we're movin' forward

Round ‘em up, round ‘em up, let's go
Round ‘em up, let's go

Oh, my eyes are seein' red
Double vision from the blood we've shed
The only way I'm leavin' is dead
That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head

They don't know, where we've been
We got that concrete street skin
Only way I'm leavin' is dead
That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head

That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head

We've been shot up, beat up by the fallin' of the arrows (arrows, arrows, arrows)
Yeah, I'm full of deep cuts right down to the marrow
But there's no doubt we'll get out from the bottom of the barrel

Oh, our flag is tattered
And my bones are shattered
But it doesn't matter
‘Cause we're movin' forward

Round ‘em up, round ‘em up, let's go
Round ‘em up, let's go

Oh, my eyes are seein' red
Double vision from the blood we've shed
The only way I'm leavin' is dead
That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head

They don't know, where we've been
We got that concrete street skin
The only way I'm leavin' is dead
That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head

That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head
That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head

Can you hear me now, can you hear me now
I'm comin' back for more
Do you feel me now, do you feel me now
I'm breakin' down your door

I'm not speakin' under my breath
‘Cause the harder you push, the rougher I get
‘Cause I'm not shakin', when the earth starts quakin'
Got my own foundation with no hesitation and the

Oh, my eyes are seein' red
Double vision from the blood we've shed
The only way I'm leavin' is dead
That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head

They don't know, where we've been
We got that concrete street skin
The only way I'm leavin' is dead
That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head

The only way I'm leavin' is dead
That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head
The only way I'm leavin' is dead
That's the state of my, state of my, state of my head


4. OUTCAST

It’s in the air
So get your head right
Crawling through the sand
Making noise, crackin’ dynamite
And I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the past I can’t ignore
Nothing less, nothing more
It’s all the same as before
I’m just feeding my appetite (I’m just feeding my appetite)

It’s in the ground
Underneath
Tied up, tweaked out
Inherently
And I’ve been swimming in the new millennium
Run, run, here I come
I’m just having some fun
I’m just feeding my appetite

Don’t you know I broke the mold
Like a hammer to a landmine
You better stick to what you know
‘Cause I ain’t playing just to rewind

I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
To outlast every outcast
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
To outlast every outcast

It’s all around
But you’re in no shape
Pacing back and forth
Looking low, feeling out of place
I been watching every minute like a casualty
Bona fide misery
It’s no conspiracy
I’m just feeding my appetite (I’m just feeding my appetite)

Don’t you know I broke the mold
Like a hammer to a landmine
You better stick to what you know
‘Cause I ain’t playing just to rewind

I got it
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
To outlast every outcast
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
To outlast every outcast

Don't you know I broke the mold
Like a hammer to a landmine
You better stick to what you know
‘Cause I ain’t playing just to rewind

I got it
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
To outlast every outcast
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
To outlast every outcast
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
To outlast every outcast
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
I’m comin’ back
To outlast every outcast


5. HOW DID YOU LOVE?

You can have the sound of a thousand voices calling your name.
You can have the light of the world blind you, bathe you in grace.
But I don't see so easily what you hold in your hands.
Cause castles crumble, kingdoms fall and turn into sand.

You can be an angel of mercy or give into hate.
You can try to buy it just like it every other careless mistake.
How do you justify I'm mystified by the ways of your heart.
With a million lies the truth will rise to tear you apart.
Wooaahh!

[Chorus:]
No one gets out alive, every day is do or die.
The one thing you leave behind.
Is how did you love, how did you love?
It's not what you believe; those prayers will make you bleed.
But while you're on your knees.
How did you love, how did you love, how did you love?

Nothing ever feels quite the same when you are what you dreamed.
And you will never look at anything the same when you see what I see
How we forget ourselves, lose our way from the cradle to the grave
You can't replicate or duplicate, gotta find your own way. Yeahhhh!

[Chorus:]
No one gets out alive, every day is do or die.
The one thing you leave behind.
Is how did you love, how did you love?
It's not what you believe; those prayers will make you bleed.
But while you're on your knees.
How did you love, how did you love, how did you love?

This ain't no cross to carry.
We are the judge and jury; we are the judge and jury.

[Chorus:]
No one gets out alive, every day is do or die.
The one thing you leave behind.
Is how did you love, how did you love?
It's not what you believe; those prayers will make you bleed.
But while you're on your knees.

How did you love, how did you love, how did you love?

This ain't no cross to carry
We are the judge and jury, we are the judge and jury

How did you love, how did you love?
How did you love, how did you love?


6. IT ALL ADDS UP

Lookie here got 'em all lined up
Same bitchy girls and boys
On their hands, on their knees
Slither through the streets
Programmed to seek and destroy
And it all adds up
And it all adds up

Oh, my my, no one's on my side
Too paranoid to listen to me
You can cast me out, you can tape my mouth
But you can't get a stone to bleed
And it all adds up
And it all adds up

You know I love it when you say you're afraid
But you hate it when I'm making you shake
Hang the truth from a noose
Put a hitman on the loose
Now you're countin' on him making your day

There ain't no magic bullet
There's no cure for the weak
There's no sympathetic shoulder here to put you to sleep
You're a long, long way from where you thought you would be
Every murder has a motive, but you ain't killin' me
And it all adds up (got something to say?)
It all adds up (say it!)

Riddle me this before I take it back
Been stealin' my shit for years
So kiss my choir but bad man's fire
'Cause you know I'm gonna bring you to tears
And it all adds up
And it all adds up

Shake shake shake
Callin' all the snakes
Been itching for the new payroll
Bang bang bang
Blow down the new slang
You can't keep all the money you stole
And it all adds up
And it all adds up

You know I love it when you say you're afraid
But you hate it when I'm making you shake
Hang the truth from a noose
Put a hit man on the loose
Now you're countin' on him makin' your day

There ain't no magic bullet
There's no cure for the weak
There's no sympathetic shoulder here to put you to sleep
You're a long, long way from where you thought you would be
Every murder has a motive but you ain't killin' me
And it all adds up [4x]

There ain't no magic bullet
There's no cure for the weak
There's no sympathetic shoulder here to put you to sleep
You're a long, long way from where you thought you would be
Every murder has a motive but you ain't killin' me
And it all adds up [11x]


7. OBLIVION

Time doesn't erase the demons you don't see
Still dancin' in your dreams
Dragging up all the ways
Temptations overgrown
Looks like we're all alone
Truth is karma don't lie
So let me show you why

Can't keep me here in the dark
I'll set you off like a spark
Into oblivion
Into oblivion
Can't shake me down to the bone
I'll turn you back into stone
Into oblivion

Rise, wrath of the rage
Those spineless spirits bleed
Behold the alchemy
Crawling out of my skin
Shed every trace of you
Just one last thing to prove

Truth is karma don't lie
So let me show you why

Can't keep me here in the dark
I'll set you off like a spark
Into oblivion
Into oblivion
Can't shake me down to the bone
I'll turn you back into stone
Into oblivion
Into oblivion
Can't keep me here in the dark
I'll set you off like a spark
Into oblivion

Aye-Oh
Aye-Oh
Aye-I

So let me show you why

Can't keep me here in the dark
I'll set you off like a spark
Into oblivion
Into oblivion
Can't shake me down to the bone
I'll turn you back into stone
Into oblivion
Into oblivion

Can't keep me here in the dark
I'll set you off like a spark
Into oblivion
Into oblivion
Can't shake me down to the bone
I'll turn you back into stone
Into oblivion


8. DANGEROUS

I could stand behind my barricade
Do what I'm told and be afraid to change
While isolated by the mainstream
With the current up against me

Well maybe if my arms were ten feet tall
I could finally reach that crystal ball

‘Cause I still find inside
There's something braver
And I, I won't be, I won't be
The silent damnation

I will never be voiceless
My weapon of choice is
I'd rather be dangerous
I won't be left defenseless
As God as my witness
I'd rather be dangerous
Dangerous

I'm not making conversation
But I'll state my observations

Well I could buy my faith like a plot in the ground
But I was never lost and I never had a doubt

‘Cause I still find
It's not my imagination
And I, I won't be, I won't be
The silent damnation

I will never be voiceless
My weapon of choice is
I'd rather be dangerous
I won't be left defenseless
As God as my witness
I'd rather be dangerous
Dangerous

Everybody
Is somebody
And anybody is you
I own my story
I won't say sorry
And neither should you

I will never be
I will never be voiceless
My weapon of choice is
I'd rather be dangerous
I won't be left defenseless
As God as my witness
I'd rather be dangerous

Everybody
Is somebody
And anybody is you
I will never be voiceless
As God as my witness
I won't be left defenseless
As God as my witness
I'd rather be dangerous
Dangerous


9. THICK AS THIEVES

Evidently we can't work it out
I guess that courage ain't allowed
Evidently you're not in the mood
And everything I say just bothers you

You built this fortress
I stumble towards it

Evidently you look furious
Walls up and I know you're serious
Evidently I'm not always there
But you left and I looked everywhere

You built this fortress
I stumble towards it
I stumble towards it

And guilty I may be
But don't give up on me
In the wake of the Odyssey
We will still be thick as thieves
You and me still thick as thieves

Evidently this is my mistake
Lost touch but I think I've been replaced
Evidently something's gotta give
Play it safe, but I know you're worth the risk

You built this fortress
I stumble towards it
I stumble towards it

And guilty I may be
But don't give up on me
In the wake of the Odyssey
We will still be thick as thieves
You and me still thick as thieves

I got an escape if you want it
We can leave first thing in the morning
We'll be back before you know it
We're as thick as thieves

And guilty I may be
But don't give up on me
In the wake of the Odyssey
We will still be thick as thieves
You and me still thick as thieves

And I guilty I may be guilty I may be
But don't give up on me don't you give up on me
In the wake of the Odyssey you and me
We will still be thick as thieves


10. BLACK CADILLAC

I got a mind full of aggravation
I can take it if I just relax
I say a prayer for the motivation
Keep me solid so I stay on track
But there’s a monkey on my back
And it don’t know how to act
Got me climbin’ up and down the walls
Now I gotta make a choice
Maybe then I can rejoice
‘Cause I'm sick of all the same withdrawals
I got a mind full of inspiration
And I ain't livin’ in the past no more

So feast your eyes
On the big, blue sky
And wave bye bye
From a long, black Cadillac
Pay the price
Gotta roll those dice
And wave bye bye
From a long, black Cadillac
From a long, black Cadillac (Cadillac)

I hear the sirens of redemption
Screamin’ out like never before
And there's a roadblock in every direction
But I ain't stoppin’ ‘cause I'm in control
And there’s a monkey on my back
So I gotta set a trap
‘Cause I'm sick of all the same withdrawals
I got a mind full of inspiration
And I ain't livin’ in the past no more

So feast your eyes
On the big, blue sky
And wave bye bye
From a long, black Cadillac
Pay the price
Gotta roll those dice
And wave bye bye
From a long, black Cadillac
Ridin’ high in a long, black Cadillac
Ridin’ high in a long, black Cadillac
In a long, black Cadillac
I ain’t living in the past no more
I ain’t living in the past no more

Screaming out like never before
Screaming out like never before

(1 2, 1 2 3 4)

So feast your eyes
On the big, blue sky
And wave bye bye
From a long, black Cadillac
Pay the price
Gotta roll those dice
And wave bye bye
From a long, black Cadillac

Feast your eyes
On the big, blue sky
Ridin’ high in a long, black Cadillac

Feast your eyes
On the big, blue sky
Ridin’ high in a long, black Cadillac

Feast your eyes
On the big, blue sky
Ridin’ high in a long, black Cadillac

Feast your eyes
On the big, blue sky
Ridin’ high in a long, black Cadillac


11. MISFITS

Staring back in time
The two of us intertwined
And your black boots
Walking fast next to mine
We were chasing the thunder inside the storm
Running so wild outside the norm
And what remains
The two of us
Against the grain

Come out, come out, wherever you are
I know you're there, I know you are

They called us crazy 'cause we never fit in
We never bothered keeping up with their trends
It didn't matter that we weren't on the list
'Cause we were misfits
We were misfits

Staying up all night
Drinkin' more than we should, getting way too high
When the sun came through
I watched you laugh
I saw you cry
'Cause the world has a way of tearing you down
Keeps you tied to the circus, paints you up like a clown
But I'm right here
Day after day
Year after year

So come out, come out, wherever you are
I know you're there, I know you are

They called us crazy 'cause we never fit in
We never bothered keeping up with their trends
It didn't matter that we weren't on the list
'Cause we were misfits
We were misfits

And after all we never played by the rules
We broke them all and found our own kind of cool
It didn't matter that we weren't on the list
'Cause we were misfits
We were misfits

Don't wait up
Don't wait up
Don't wait up
Don't wait up
Don't wait up
Don't wait up
We're long gone...

They called us crazy 'cause we never fit in
We never bothered keeping up with their trends
It didn't matter that we weren't on the list
'Cause we were misfits
We were misfits

And after all we never played by the rules
We broke them all and found our own kind of cool
It didn't matter that we weren't on the list
'Cause we were misfits
We were misfits

Don't wait up
Don't wait up
Don't wait up
We're long gone...


BONUSTRACKS

12. NEVER GONNA LET GO

Balanced on a wire
High above the earth tonight
Looking for an answer
Finding that warning sign
Slowly falling
Into my emotions
Drowning in an ocean
And I can't find you

Balanced on a wire
High above the earth tonight
Now I'm hanging by a thread
But I never felt so alive
And to the very last minute
We will always be death defying

Caught in the act of flying solo
This acrobat is lost
And I don’t know
Where I’ll land
As I reach for your hand
All of the lights can be so blinding
Every time I jump you always find me
Without a net
So please don’t forget
Cause right now I'm out of control
Swear you’re never gonna let go

Tell me not to look down
Promise that you’re gonna stay
Spinning like a top now
Feeling like I'm gonna break
Into nothing
Tell me that there’s still hope
Back up on the tightrope
Faster and faster

Balanced on a wire
High above the earth tonight
And it doesn’t make sense
How me and you still survive
To the very last minute
We will always be death defying
Caught in the act of flying solo
This acrobat is lost
And I don’t know
Where I’ll land
As I reach for your hand
All of the lights can be so blinding
But every time I jump you always find me
Without a net
So please don’t forget
Cause right now I'm out of control
Swear you’re never gonna let go

Now I'm hanging by a thread
But I never felt so alive
To the very last minute
We will always be death defying

Caught in the act of flying solo
This acrobat is lost
And I don’t know
Where I’ll land
As I reach for your hand
All of the lights can be so blinding
But every time I jump you always find me
Without a net
So please don’t forget
Cause right now I'm out of control
Swear you’re never gonna let go
Cause right now I'm out of control
Swear you’re never gonna let go


13. REJECT

We go left, right, left, right, left
We march into the black hole
To kill the sunset
We go left, right, left, right, left
We navigate scenario's
We compensate to keep control

Reset
Is this a test?
A mess, because we know what happens next
If your depressed, confess
Here's a pill you can ingest

Re-ject
Yea, what the hell did you expect?

I don't know if I, if I believe in you
I don't know if I want to, want to
I don't know if you can even tell the truth
I don't know if you want to, want to

Re-ject
Yea, what the hell did you expect?

We're turned in-side-out to find a match
Then uploaded to a file and spread around till we attach
Turned up-side-down to feel exposed
Digging tunnels in the dark, might be the place you meet your soul

Re-ject
The information's incorrect.

I don't know if I, if I believe in you
I don't know if I want to, want to
I don't know if you can even tell the truth
I don't know if you want to, want to

Re-ject
Yea, what the hell did you expect?

Is that your best bet?
In your zombie like the rest
I'm not laughing cause its funny
If your not guilty why you running?

Re-ject (x4)

I don't know if I, if I believe in you
I don't know if I want to, want to
I don't know if I, if I believe in you
I don't know if I want to, want to

Re-ject
What the hell did you expect?
