1. oh shit

the air is thin but my skin is thick
but somehow i keep on getting sick
sick of all of this
all the friends back home that i miss
im tired of all of this
working all of these stupid shifts

well

if you take a step back you might see its flawed

i have a friend who got off the hook (mitch)
and now i know its cause of his looks
you can attach a motor to a bike (danny)
but i sure hope you know where youre going in life
there are some books that are on the shelf
their idleness reflects a part of my self (me)

well

if you take a step back you might just
if you take a step back you might just
if you take that step back you might just see that its fucked

cuz ya you know im fed up (its a raffle)
its a been a lot of hours and
god ive had enough

and my boss will be so displeased when he finds out about anarchy
what about fried chicken monday
and my boss will be so displeased when he cannot enjoy my company
and dont forget that we always got curly fries
and we can restructure the restaurant and make it free
and we got a local thai restaurant to come out its just an extra swipe

i walked a mile
it took a while
but they sold the style
you can see it
its on the shelfs
and if you look close
you can see yourself

fuck with the contents
only a few things
are so godsent
a phenomenon thats
so fucking hellbent
filled with angelic advertisements
well i dont think
that i like those contents

its the peoples song
it belongs to everyone
lets go

9. soft pretzels

if you knew me
i wouldnt have to prove my identity
but i know its hard, hard to believe
when deceivers are now being deceived
well youre the states worst enemy
when you dont buy the products
that say were free oh
destroy the golden trophy
destroy the illusion of victory uh oh

digital bliss oh info screen
how i love your screaming melodies
furthermore your jeweled obscenities
that i wear as i walk right through the breeze
once again im acting out your scene
and you got soft pretzels waiting for me
well i gotta be honest this place gives me the willies
ee ee ee e oh o

ive never been good at the dishes
ive never been all that efficient
i dont know for what i am wishing
but i know i got my moms superstition well

playing the same game
we dont know who to blame

ive never been good at long distance
ive been quite that efficient
but i think that i found the movement
but i still got my moms superstition

i thought we were on the same level
cant you see that
they
got us once again
playing the same game
we dont know who to blame

13. tv set

this is a really bad commercial on your tv set
this is a really bad commercial bout cars and sex
this is a really bad classic rock riff
but it helps me get in the rock n roll spirit

and ya know how hard that can be these days
when everything you love has been reinvented
and you found out its all been for a profit
they took your childhood and ahh did they sell it

fish they flop when theres not enough air
me i stop when i dont fucking care
rock n roll in the rocking chair
its alright i dont care let the speakers blare

cuz ya know how hard that can be these days
when everything you love has been reinvented
and you found out its all been for a profit
they took your childhood and ahh did they sell it

14. took a while

took a while for me to know what the flags meant
took a while but the earth is now in fragments
took a while but they boiled it down to a statement
took a while but all my friends all in one basement

at the side of a home
that well never own
well its all about you
and how many homes
can you really own?
oh its always been about you

i dont know who you are
i just rent from who you are

took a while for me to know what the states meant
took a while for me to find the movement
took a while but the earth is now in fragments
took a while but all my friends all in one basement

and we are smoking weed
at the side of a home
that well never own
oh its all about you
and how many homes
can you really own?
