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

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)

Day Jobs 03:39
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

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
