Hey, Today is the day that you said you'd be helping me out And don't get me wrong I can probably move it myself Because I'd hurt my back before I would ask anyone for help Hey, I'm shouting to say that I got in a bit of a bind And don't get me wrong I'm sure that my injuries will heal with time But when I dropped the piano I heard something snap so Would somebody call me an ambulance ride? Was my message received? I need your H E L P Do I gotta spell it out for you? Because you know I'm too proud To ever say it out loud But I need you to save me from myself Hey, Remember that time I was trapped beneath a baby grand? That I moved myself without any help But now I can't stand This hospital bill is making me ill I've got no insurance My country assured me I don't want a safety net Was my message received? I need your H E L P Do I gotta spell it out for you? Because you know I'm too proud To ever say it out loud But I need you to save me from myself Save us from ourselves Save us from ourselves

No Memory 02:39
Come close, I'll tell you a secret If we forget we're destined to repeat it Sisyphusin', yeah we're running in place As history gets swept away Textbooks re-written by the victors Enemies erased from all the pictures Control the present You control the past You control the future too We've got no memory of the past before the day that we were born History was written by the ones who wore the uniforms What we learn we forget and We repeat what we neglect We repeat what we neglect These days you can't believe your eyes or Deep fakes will make you none the wiser We've got the means to manufacture facts and We're at the point where there's no going back These days we just can't pay attention It predates our digital dependence But now we never leave a paper trail To prove what is the truth We've got no memory of the past before the day that we were born History was written by the ones who wore the uniforms What we learn we forget and We repeat what we neglect We repeat what we neglect Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide Escape reality

I don't want to rant today But I had better set it straight You don't want to play around, man Cause I will take a baller down Because it's survival of the fittest and You just failed the litmus test To see if you can stay Yeah it's survival of the fittest It won't be contradicted Go anywhere as long as it's away Everyone who walks around Today is the end product of A thousand generation chain So don't it make you stop and think? I guess you are the weakest link Should I slow it down when I explain? Because it's survival of the fittest and You just failed the litmus test To see if you can stay Yeah it's survival of the fittest It won't be contradicted Go anywhere as long as it's away

Shock Value 03:08
I wouldn't have volunteered If I knew that I would end up here In an electric chair Your hand on the button And there's a scientist Who has the answer list Answer wrong and I WILL GET A SHOCK! I get an answer wrong He says "You must go on" Three hundred volts arcing across the air and My chest it palpitates The voltage aggravates my heart condition and I'M BEGGING YOU TO STOP! Up the shock value Watch while you're causing me pain I'll be fine after time But will you be the same Once you know how far a stranger can make you go? For me there's no escape But you could always walk away Turn to the man and say "I won't take your orders" You think they're testing me But they are testing you They're trying to find exactly WHAT A MAN WILL DO! Up the shock value Watch while you're causing me pain I'll be fine after time But will you be the same Once you know how far a stranger can make you go? Look, I know we're not supposed to talk But I'd really prefer you not give me a shock Look, I know we're not supposed to talk But I'd really prefer you not... NOT TO FIFTY!

If stress is your B.F.F. If you go to bed but you cannot rest If drowning's sounding nice to you Then you might suffer an acute condition called sobriety Leading to anxiety that you think you hide from me When you drink alone You're in survival mode if you know it or not You're in survival mode which is why you cannot Make a plan You just react You're in survival mode if you know it or not You're in survival mode which is why you cannot Take a chance So now you're trapped

Amazing grace How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me I once was lost but now I'm found Was blind but now I see Colour me blind for thinking it's fine Ignoring the smoke and hoping this madness would pass us in time While I was asleep an evil was creeping up on us and Where else could it hide but in plain sight Time to decide will you stand up and fight Cause there's no way I am closing my eyes again We've got one shot so make it stick You can colour me surprised if we get out of this You come at the king and you best not miss Amazing grace How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me I once was lost but now I'm found Was blind but now I see Colour me deaf for while it was spreading I had my head in the sand and I didn't hear all of the signs Thought it was a joke and then I awoke to "Very fine people are on every side" Now is your chance! Take action at last, please, while you still can Because some day soon you cannot go back again We've got one shot so make it stick You can colour me surprised if we get out of this You come at the king and you best not miss Amazing grace How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me I once was lost but now I'm found Was blind but now I see

You Too 02:55
We ran the show but now we're stepping aside Gotta change up the lineup if we're gonna survive It's time for you to take the reigns from us before it's too late And now you too can have a chance to make the mistakes We had one shot We cocked it up And the ricochet rebounded back at us We set our sights And then we missed We ran out of all our old ideas and yet you persisted You too could rule the world How badly could you do? We kings ran things for years and left the earth Royally screwed Here, take the keys, because We've lost the right to lead And now you too can take a turn We're sorry that we left it burning We ran the show but now we're stepping aside Gotta change up the lineup if we're gonna survive It's time for you to take the reigns from us before it's too late And now you too can have a chance to make the mistakes We lit it up We burned it down We ran the whole world straight into the ground Now it's your turn To set things right And I don't envy every uphill battle you will have to fight You, too, will try your best You'll have to compromise You'll swear an oath to only tell the necessary lies I hope that you won't lock the horns Or start a never-ending war but if you do You too are caught in the loop We ran the show but now we're stepping aside Gotta change up the lineup if we're gonna survive It's time for you to take the reigns from us before it's too late And now you too can have a chance to make the mistakes Here, take the keys, because We've lost the right to lead And now you too can take a turn We're sorry that we left it burning You won't lock the horns Or start a never-ending war but if you do You too are caught in the loop

I don't got enough ammo to kill all the zombies man I run out all the time but they come back again Sneak around scrounging shells and herbs and if I can Remember never to play this game before bed again Dreaming of survival horror Creeping around the corners

Pump The Brakes Pump The Brakes This is the future calling and you better pickup what I'm laying down There ain't no use in stalling so I might as well just go and say it out loud It's 2019; you know better than to take that shit out of the ground Who do you think you're fooling when you say it's cool while the house burns down Pump The Brakes Pump The Brakes I know you wanna go fast but you kicked the Earth's ass To get a little more boom in your ride that raised the tide Which you knew at the time but you never decided to Stop, drop and roll on by the bike store where you can Get a ride for the days you are able to get there on time Pump The Brakes Pump The Brakes Pump The Brakes Pump The Brakes

I made a statue of myself to prove that I was here I wrote a book, when it was done everyone had disappeared I had a wife who took her life because she knew we were the last Saw the end of everything when we witnessed the collapse of the world We ventured out onto the earth that had been frozen stiff After weeks inside the shelter where the two of us had hid The only sounds had been the storm Even the radio was dead Saw the earth had been transformed We fled into the oubliette From the worms in the sky Our forefathers forsake us to die Where the streets have no name When there is no one left to see the signs Hidden beneath the Ice The sky is full of tornadoes By now it's too late to undo what we did The ocean is frozen forever We both had front row seats to the apocalypse Our forefathers forsake us to die Where the streets have no name When there is no one left to see the signs Hidden beneath the Ice-niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine

Be Loud 02:58
There are some folks who wish that you were not Not gone, but just not here Don't bring it up Don't give it air Protect their eyes and ears How do you dare to try to make them care? Leave it home and out of sight Trust me you don't want to try to win this fight Well to that I say Be loud! Like your survival depends on it Be proud! Like your survival depends on it Don't shut down! Like your survival depends on it Because it does Hey man when did you get so serious? We were trying to have a good ol' time Don't bring us down With your raincloud Just act like things are fine But saying nothing is the same as saying "What is had ought to be." What is theoretical for you Is personal for me The absence of a statement is a statement The absence of a statement is a statement The absence of a statement is a statement Well to that I say Be loud! Like your survival depends on it Be proud! Like your survival depends on it Don't shut down! Like your survival depends on it Because it does Be loud.
