Track Name: To Hell I'm Gone
It's my time to be free
To live as I please
Like the Ramones at CBGBs
Or Banksy on British streets

Slinging dirty guitars
For the love of the sound
Speaking my mind
Even if no one's around
Fuck work-week blues
I want passion reds
To paint this town with

It's my time to fucking own
Not once – not this alone
27 years spent ago
I say the rest I'm owed

(Ten plus years)
Spent in a van
(Ten plus years)
Spent paying my debts
Finally I said
"This shit's for me"
So I started a punk rock symphony

(Chorus)
To hell with the world
(Hey!)
I'm here to create
To hell with the chorus of critics
(Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)
To hell I'm gone


It's my time to be free
To live as I please
Like the Ramones, like Banksy,
Like anybody with a dream

I speak in chords
And think in score
4/4 vision
In a one track world

(Chorus)
To hell with the world
(Hey!)
I'm here to create
To hell with the chorus of critics
(Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)
To hell I'm gone
Track Name: Every Wave Crashes
I've been sailing a long, long time alone
Manning a broken vessel on my own
(I'm all alone, I'm all alone)

For every anchor I cut
A main sail's lost
I fight ocean waves
Yet get swept along
(I'm swept along, I'm swept along)

Chorus
To the end
To the ends of the earth I go
To the ends of the world
I'm always alone
(I'm always alone, I'm always alone)

To the end
To the ends of the earth I know
To the ends of the world
I'm fighting to own
(I'm fighting to own)

Swept past the island towns
Swept past any love I've ever found
(I've ever found, I've ever found)

The ship I steer is the only thing I have
And the ocean beckons
So I fight for my chance
(I fight for my fucking chance in this life...)

Chorus
To the end
To the ends of the earth I go
To the ends of the world
I'll fight alone
(I fight alone, I fight alone)

To the end
To the ends of the earth I know
To the ends of the world
I'll fight to own
(I'll fight to own)

Every wave crashes into me
Every siren sings for me
"Come on home..."
Sing for me my tumultuous symphony
("Come on home...")
This is not my home

Chorus
To the end
To the ends of the earth I go
To the ends of the world
I'll fight alone
(I fight alone, I fight alone)

To the end
To the ends of the earth I know
To the ends of the world
I'll fight to own
(I'll fight to own)
Track Name: Day Jobs
Day Jobs
(featuring Aaron Scott from Attica! Attica!)

Every hour...
Every hour gone...

Everyday it's the same old shit
Go to work,
And get 8 hours closer to death
Wondering "when's it gonna end?
Trading hours for paper –
When I'm dead?"

When I'm dead and gone

Every hour spent
Every hour gone
Every hour of mine
Spent begging for alms

Every hour, every hour's
Too fucking long
It's too fucking long

Punch in, clock out, repeat and rinse
Forty hours a week
Till some shitty pension
Wondering "this is how it ends?"
"Trading hours for paper till I'm dead?"

Now I'm dead and lost
Now I'm dead and gone

(No, I didn't want it to end like this! –
This isn't what I wanted at all! –
Please, I don't want this to be it – )

Noooo!

Every hour spent
Every hour gone
Every hour of mine
Spent begging for alms

Every hour, every hour's
Too fucking long
It's too fucking long

Every hour's
Too fucking long
I want'em back
I want'em all
Track Name: A World Asleep
For every hour
I spend alive
I'm counting the hours
Till I die
It's never enough
The time flies by...

Each minute screams to me
"...take the life you want to lead..."

And so I lie awake
Just to escape
Sleep's been making deals with Death
And he let's him creep
Around my bed
Tries to rob my life
(Night after –)
Night after night

Chorus
Hey – And it's all I see
Hey – Is a world asleep
Hey – And it's all I see
Hey – Is my world's asleep

Through this city's streets
I want to make'em see
"Sleep's been selling us out!
He's been selling you out!
These years of our youth
Are stolen right from out of our mouths"
(Gasp)

Chorus
Hey – And it's all I see
Hey – Is a world asleep
Hey – And it's all I see
Hey – Is my world's asleep

No we won't go
No we won't
Oh!

I'm done dreaming out loud
I want to live loud

I'm waking up
And I'm coming back
Sleep's been ebbing dreams
But I'm shaking back

Chorus
Hey – And it's all I see
Hey – And it's all I feel
Hey – Is a world unreal

Hey
Is this world asleep?
Hey
Cause Death's sneaking beneath
