Track Name: Your Final Address
I don’t care if you fight; I just care if you bleed.
And what I expect of you, you will soon expect of me.
And I will never surrender and you will never retreat
So are you going to live on your knees or are going to die on your feet?

When you meet God.
Tell a joke to clear the air.
When he asks you what you regret.
Tell him you only had one of you to spare…

I can smell your fear and I can tell that you’re scared.
Don’t you die for your country, make them die for theirs.
And don’t you carry that fear for the rest of your life,
You just carry that weapon boy and try and stay alive.

When you meet God.
Tell a joke to clear the air.
When he asks you what you regret.
Tell him you only had one of you to spare…


…Doctor I feel like a deck of cards; “sit down I’ll deal with you later.”
…But Doctor, Doctor I feel like a bridge; “boy what’s come over you?”
…Doctor, Doctor I feel like it curtains; “Man pull yourself together!”

Track Name: Made To Break The Chain
I was touch never to quit, and I am constantly reminded of it.
I am constantly reminded to keep a stiff upper lip
Cause I as sure as meet hell as I’d forget.

By my means and all the means I had
I appreciate the good case it comes with the bad
And all I have is still intact
Cause there’s no moving forward till there’s no going back.

I was born to save myself.
I was raised to know the difference between deception and stealth
And I have found that rich means more than measurable wealth
I was made to break the chain.

By my means and all the means I had
I appreciate the good case it comes with the bad
And all I have is still intact
Cause there’s no moving forward till there’s no going back.

I pray I am more a man then a plan
I pray I am more then one grain in an ocean of sand
And I pray I get the chance I will do it all again
Yea I pray for you and yours to understand.

By my means and all the means I had
I appreciate the good case it comes with the bad
And all I have is still intact
Cause there’s no moving forward till there’s no going back.
Track Name: Weapon
It’s a weapon called deception
This noise.
This not circumstance
This a choice.

A weapon
Fatal weapon my voice
To use who I want as my toys.

You got a lot of nerve
Thinking this is what we deserve
You’ve got a lot of guts
To speak for the both of us.

It’s a weapon called prevention
In the right hands
This not a farewell it’s a last dance
A weapon
Fatal weapon my glance
To handle all of my business.

You got a lot of nerve
Thinking this is what we deserve
You’ve got a lot of guts
To speak for the both of us.



It’s a weapon
Used to threaten the things I can’t kill
I run on
Nothing until I get my fill

My weapon
My intention
That’s my skill
To uses at my will
My will.

You got a lot of nerve
Thinking this is what we deserve
You’ve got a lot of guts
To speak for the both of us.
Track Name: Ponzi Scheme
Leave em’ be
Leave em’ be
It’s time to go home now.

Ponzi Scheme
Ponzi Scheme
You’re out of control now.

I found the best concept
Want it all but don’t expect it yet
I found the best revenge is when it ends
You just start again

Leave em’ be
Leave em’ be
It’s time to go home now.

Ponzi Scheme
Ponzi Scheme
You’re out of control now.

I found the best concept
Want it all but don’t expect a cent
I found the best revenge is when it ends
You just start again

Ponzi Scheme

Leave em’ be

Land of the free

Ponzi Scheme
Track Name: S.O.S.
An S.O.S this takes forever tell me what will make this better
Take all you want from me.
We engineered this sound you hear
It’s getting stronger ear to ear and I pray that you pray for me.

Been building up this steam for now
They built me up to tare me down
I will take all I want in exchange.
I feel this is going to change I feel this is taking shape
When it does I will replace your face.

S.O.S. No time to rest there’s only tears and blood and sweet
And what is left we will share what is left.
An S.O.S. with every breath I am always screaming out my distress
With an S.O.S.
Track Name: Have I Ever Told You
She had no one to drive her home
She liked that time alone
She’d go where others go to be brave.

She no one to keep her down
She had no one to keep around and she caved.

He had a fast car and sharper bones
Then her heart as ever known
Safest ride home suppose we go

Their son he’s as fast as sound
And nothings going to slow him down
You should hear him hit that throttle now if you can.

Have I ever told you that I choose you?
Have I ever told what I was going to do for you?
Have I ever told you what I’d go through?
Have I ever told you that I know you?
I Know you.

It was a safe bet as safe bets get
Wasn’t for sure but still legit
Haven’t made it but making it by hand

A life spent of compromise
Now feels by design
Cause it doesn’t break apart it divides in time.

Have I ever told you that I choose you?
Have I ever told what I was going to do for you?
Have I ever told you what I’d go through?
Have I ever told you that I know you?
I Know you.



Have I ever told you that I choose you?
Have I ever told what I was going to do for you?
Have I ever told you what I’d go through?
Have I ever told you that I know you?
I Know you.
Track Name: My Friends And Me
My friend the lonely one
He had a loaded gun
He asked who would have some fun
Who could resist
My friend the hypocrite
He is sharp as the dualist tip
Suggest that we pointed it
Directly at God.

It keeps raining bullets
To no one’s surprise
It keeps feeling useless
But me and my friends we still gotta try.

My friend the businessman
Lets make a killing
Well make more God willing and give you some d’oh
My friend the basterds son
He asked where we all came from
He asked when it all is done where will we go?

That’s for you to find out
And someone else to know
And though it keeps raining bullets
It will turn into show... its going to get cold.

My friends make me feel whole.

My friends wont let me go.

My friends you make me laugh
My friends I’ve got your back
My friends I appreciate that
My friends and me.
