Track Name: Don't Call it a Comeback
You think that you’re a failure
And that you’re the only one
You’re giving up on life
And say that you are done
Life’s kicked you down
but you could always turn it around
Meet us at the bar
We could talk this out

They used to keep us down
They double up our drinks for free now
They used to keep us down
They double up our drinks for free now

We had to pick ourselves up
When things knocked us down
We didn’t depend on anyone
To go and bail us out
You have to be optimistic
If you want to get through life
People will only treat you
As well as you treat yourself

They used to keep us down
They double up our drinks for free now
They used to keep us down
They double up our drinks for free now

They used to keep us down
They double up our drinks for free now
They used to keep us down
They double up our drinks for free now
Track Name: Tetris
When they tell you to dance
Say I don’t dance
Say show me your hands
Run as fast as you can
We are stallions on these streets
Never face defeat
Tried to tame us like mystical beast

Doesn’t feel good
When we win
And they lose
Doesn’t feel good
When we win
And they lose

Don’t question why
Assimilate or die
We’re always at war
With the places we don’t see eye to eye
Throw your hands up to the sky
Say I don’t want to die
God damn it we’ve got to try

Doesn’t feel good
When we win
And they lose
Doesn’t feel good
When we win
And they lose

We win they lose
We win they lose
We win they lose
We win they lose
We win they lose
We win they lose
We win they lose
We win they lose
We win they lose
We win they lose
We win they lose
We win they lose
Track Name: Bruce Meatsteen
So you feel the pressure
To get things done
Don’t throw up your hands yet
Its not all over
Theres time to work it out
Sleep when you’re dead
We don’t even sleep at all

You said you never had a home
You got one now

We’ve all got struggles
Persevere with your knuckles
You totally got this
You’re totally crushing it

Nothing is perfect
And thats ok
How you respond to
All of your struggles
Is what defines you
Sleep when you’re dead
We don’t even sleep at all

You said you never had a home
You got one now

We’ve all got struggles
Persevere with your knuckles
You totally got this
You’re totally crushing it

You’ve got a good thing going
You’ve got a good thing going
You’ve got a good thing going
Damn right I know it

You’ve got a good thing going
You’ve got a good thing going
You’ve got a good thing going
Damn right I know it
Track Name: Jaws of Life
Take a risk lets go
It might work who knows
It could pay to make a sacrifice
Maybe we can’t live forever
But we’re in it together
We could be your jaws of life

Jaws of life
Jaws of life
Jaws of life
Jaws of life
Jaws of life

We could see it on your face
You really like this place
You don’t have to go anywhere
So you might take a chance
So you might take a stance
Doesn’t mean you’ll lose everything

Jaws of life
Jaws of life
Jaws of life
Jaws of life
Jaws of life

Jaws of life
Jaws of life
Jaws of life
Jaws of life
Jaws of life
Track Name: Don't Wait
Fake it until you make it
Just don’t wait ‘til its too late
Don’t fear what you don’t know
And don’t wait ‘til its too late

Don’t wait ‘til its too late
‘Til its too late (‘Til its too late)
Don’t wait ‘til its too late
‘Til its too late (‘Til its too late)

The time has come to prove yourself
Just don’t wait ‘til its too late
We only have so much time to spare
So don’t wait ‘til its too late

Don’t wait ‘til its too late
‘Til its too late (‘Til its too late)
Don’t wait ‘til its too late
‘Til its too late (‘Til its too late)

Don’t wait ‘til its too late
‘Til its too late (‘Til its too late)
Don’t wait ‘til its too late
‘Til its too late (‘Til its too late)
Track Name: Knockout
So now you’re a little bit older
Hopefully a little bit wiser
Everyday brings a new challenge
Stay focused you will manage
You can’t always take the easy way
Out

Sometimes you gotta go for the knockout
Don’t sit while it passes you by
Sometimes you gotta go for the knockout
And hold your head up high

Count up all your problems
How many can you control
Looks like you’re not dead yet
So things can get better
You can’t always take the easy way
Out

Sometimes you gotta go for the knockout
Don’t sit while it passes you by
Sometimes you gotta go for the knockout
And hold your head up high

Sometimes you gotta go for the knockout
Don’t sit while it passes you by
Sometimes you gotta go for the knockout
And hold your head up high
Track Name: Places
It started at The Fire in Philly
Made our way down to DC
The tour took the whole east coast
We got to play so many places

Woooooooah
Make it a movement
Woooooooah
Make it a movement

Heading down to Sanford from
Jacksonville
They say its 92
But it feels like 108

Woooooooah
Make it a movement
Woooooooah
Make it a movement

The last night we slept in the van
Had no pillows we had to use a beer can
Fuck sleep who needs it
When you’re part of a punk rock movement

Woooooooah
Make it a movement
Woooooooah
Make it a movement

Woooooooah
Make it a movement
Woooooooah
Make it a movement
Track Name: Ghost Surgery
This is our time
These are our lives
We’re doing anything just to stay alive
Throw it at us
We could take it
There is nothing you can do to phase us

We are young
We’re never going to die
We are young
We’re never going to die
Those motherfuckers tried to pull the wool over our eyes
We are young
We’re never going to die

You can’t stop us
We will make it
The rest our lives are in front of us
Say we’ll fail
We don’t care
If you doubt us you can go fuck yourself

We are young
We’re never going to die
We are young
We’re never going to die
Those motherfuckers tried to pull the wool over our eyes
We are young
We’re never going to die

I hope every time you reach out for a high five
Nobody ever leaves you hanging
I hope every time you reach out for a high five
Nobody ever leaves you hanging

I hope every time you reach out for a high five
Nobody ever leaves you hanging
I hope every time you reach out for a high five
Nobody ever leaves you hanging
Track Name: Corn Flakes and Ketchup
Change comes but we must keep rolling
No matter where your mind is going
Doesn’t mean we’re gonna give up now
Just because things are different
Doesn’t mean they aren’t better
Now it’s time to get up and take what’s ours

Changes come you can’t stop them
We ain’t taking shit from no one
Making the best of our situation

You’re going to have to embrace some changes
Nothing you can do just face it
Maybe things are better who’s to say?
This is not a time to lay down
Gotta go at least one more round
Take what’s new go and seize the day

Changes come you can’t stop them
We ain’t taking shit from no one
Making the best of our situation
Changes come you can’t stop them
We ain’t taking shit from no one
Making the best of our situation

Changes are coming
Nothing can stop them now
Changes are coming
Nothing can stop them now

Changes are coming
Nothing can stop them now
Changes are coming
Nothing can stop them now
Track Name: They Don't Know What You Know
So they say that you’re crazy
They try to tell you you’ve lost your mind
Just because you think differently
Doesn’t mean you’re wrong this time

Conform today be dead tomorrow
There’s a lot of them but you don’t have to follow
Find something real not something hollow
In due time they’ll know you’re right

They don’t know what you know
They don’t know what you know
They don’t know what you know

You’re not alone we’re all in this
You’re not the only one that feels this way
They’re all talk but no action
Don’t give up on what’s true

They don’t know what you know
They don’t know what you know
They don’t know what you know
What you know

They don’t know what you know
They don’t know what you know
They don’t know what you know
What you know

They don’t know what you know
They don’t know what you know
They don’t know what you know
What you know

Sitting all alone
What can he say
He just wants to play

Damn

It could always be worse

His eyes
His hands
His soles
His feet
His whole damn body is made of meat

His eyes

His soles
His feet
His whole damn body is made of meat

Track Name: Everything is Better Than You Think
Where is your fight your will to survive, from all your internal demons
How long are you gonna live in fear, and focus on your negativity
Build more bridges don’t burn them down, you’ll never know when you’ll need them
Take the reigns with your own hands, it's your life it’s your choice

Come on, it’s not that bad
Come on, it’s not that bad

Can you create something new, without second guessing yourself
Being afraid to fall on your face, will just make you unoriginal
You need to stop paying attention to, things that shouldn’t have an effect on you
The whole world’s not out to get you, despite what you think

Come on, it’s not that bad
Come on, it’s not that bad

Everything is better than you think
Everything is better than you think
Everything is better than you think
Everything is better than you think
Everything is better than you think
Everything is better than you think
