about

One year and one day in the making, this was tracked all over town by Justin Wood, Ezra Hinton and just a liiiiiitle bit by Adam Tucker. At over 43 minutes it's a fucking magnum opus by our standards and by my count there are eighteen different people performing throughout this monster. It sounds really good on good speakers and still pretty ok on shitty ones. For best use take drugs and put on headphones and get on your bike.

Track Name: Continue To Live Normal Lives
Now it's possible for you to live with this defect for the rest of your life without developing a problem. Or even if you do, many people continue to live normal lives.
Track Name: Treadmill Forever
If you change your name
From black back to blue, then maybe I'd come back to you
But if you stay the same
So vain to do, then what they say is true

It's such a shame
To claim as no surprise
She's lovely, she's ugly
She's 3 4 1 4 2 5's

(It's always such a thrill)
Someday I'll get to the end of the treadmill
(It's always so fulfilled)
Now I just can't quit till I die or I get killed

If the day-to-day becomes much too mundane
It only takes one plane to permanently change the game

So hold every note you can
How can you say you're a rebel?
You're following a masterplan
Track Name: I Don't Give A Shit About Anything
How are you ever gonna have unless you take from someone who has?
You never made a dollar on your own
You're only passing that cash

If we communicate, then can we soon escape
You think you've made your mark
But it's not too dark for me to just illuminate

(I bet you can but you won't)
Cause I don't give a shit about anything
One man one hand-written note
Cause I don't give a shit about anything

How are you ever going mad unless you've got some power to grab?
You're never really giving it your all
You're always standing on someone's back

Your golden goal is gone
Your soul is holding on
(I think your days are done)
You may say I'm not a dreamer but I'm not the only one

Because you'll never escape from the Uptown Diner
I bet you never get to sing your song
I know I'll never escape from the Uptown Diner
I bet you never get to sing your song
Track Name: Kevin Will Aim
There was so much
That you didn't know
Before you changed your mind
And closed up inside
My default friends
Are stealing the show
Leaving me chained in pride
And insane inside

What good is dignity?
What fun is honesty?
If you never care to point the blame?
Lord knows Kevin will aim

I'm sold on where I need to be
10,000 miles from home
How could you sleep on me?

Not holding on
And not holding off
Still has a place and time
But is it your place or mine?
Faking you out
And reeling you in
Seems like a faceless crime
When you waste your spine

Don't give it all away
Leave something more to say
Come clean or hide
It's all the same
Lord knows Kevin will aim
Track Name: Socialist Stripper
You can't bring rain to the plain but you give 'em hail
You can't bring sight to the blind but you give 'em braille

And I know that you're fine
I'm already ready to leave you behind
When it's showtime, and it's no time

I know mom and dad are never gonna get back together
Mom and dad are never gonna get back together
Mom and dad are never gonna get back together
Is that so wrong?
(Getting paid to play along)

You're just a socialist stripper in Oregon
(Giving a show to the whole room for next to nothin')
A socialist stripper in Oregon
(Giving a show to the whole room with next to nothin' on)

You tried to provide and abide by a golden rule
Then why get surprised when a child wanna die
(And he shoots the school)

I know that you know, that you're fine
You're got more money than all of us Columbined

Mom and dad are never gonna get back together
Tom and Brad, Nicole and Katie, Angie and Jennifer
Prom and graduation then gone in September
It's just one shot
(Whether you like it or not)

You don't wish you were dead you just wish you were dying
To justify why you stopped trying
Work and play is all the same in hell, in hell
They got seat-belts and condoms for motherless kids
Who won't ever know what togetherness is
The means to keep us safe just keep us separate from ourselves
Track Name: Nicotine Mountain
Forever keep nicotine mounting in your heart

The

Of

Forever keep nicotine mounting in your heart
Track Name: Capitalist Girlfriend
Scripted existence is the aim of the powerful lately
They're setting the stage
(In the moderate age)
The distance from freedom down to slavery
Is all just about the minimum wage
(I'm still just a rat in a cage)
One occupation is a crime in the eyes of the state
The other is green
(If you're keeping it clean)

But when you hold the key to every golden mean
It's hostile to be a machine

(Capitalist girlfriend)
I can't get down unless I'm up to somethin'
(Capitalist girlfriend)
Season's over and we're just one month in
(Capitalist girlfriend)
Top of the world will make you feel like jumpin' off again

My educators always told me to follow my dreams
So I blew up a mall
(And Lambeau Field and Carnegie Hall)
Sympathy for bin Laden's more than not enough
If you haven't the gall
G as in jihad's got your god in Guantanamo Bay
That's why he's never been seen
(Except by the king and the queen)

But when you own the scene, so safe and so serene
It's hostile to be a machine

(Capitalist girlfriend)
Tens of millions of a hundred thousand
(Capitalist girlfriend)
Digging pennies from an endless fountain
(Capitalist girlfriend)
Who gets rich and who will end up drownin' in that swim?

Hands behind your back my friend
It's partial martial law again
I know you wanna have your say
But it's martial law and it's here to stay
Track Name: Winners Will Win
You know I'll never be rich unless I win over idiots
I'll never be cool unless I win over pricks
I'll never be real if I don't tell you the truth
And the truth is, I'll always be full of shit

I guess the winners will win

Now I got freedom of speech unless I say "Kill the President"
Got freedom to choose working or starving to death
I got freedom to feel like I'm not being used
And I don't expect to be told when they know that there ain't nothing left

I guess the winners will win
The pace is set by thieves and businessmen
I guess the winners will win

The pace is set by thieves and businessmen
I guess the winners will win
You don't get sad, you just give in
Because the winners will win
Track Name: Reimbursed Into Flames
All I want and all I need is total trust and complete control
Or at least a guarantee the Vikings will win the Super Bowl
Now the paths are pointless on potential maps
When every dynasty can still collapse
And I cannot help you if you feel betrayed
You knew the odds, and yet you still played
All the thoughts you ever had will be heard someday by everyone
So clear your mind and kill your dad
And kill yourself when policemen come

Someone's not getting away with it this time
Someone's not getting away with it all

All around the atmosphere we're overpowered by common sense
Ideal dreams that once were clear were ego and overconfidence
But you don't care about the Vikings
And I don't care about your feelings
You wanna go back to mountain biking
But I really truly only miss the drug dealing

Someone's not getting away with it this time
And no one now knows none not getting at all
Someone's not getting away with it this time
And nothing you do can stop you from taking the fall
Hope you're having a ball

Many many people continue to live normal lives
(Many many people continue to live normal lives)
All along secretly sittin' and wishin'
That maybe Alderaan was simply simple divison
Many many people continue to live normal lives
(Many many people continue to live normal lives)
No more time to say I'm patiently waitin'
When every sudden sign is moving station to station
Many many people continue to live normal lives
(Many many people continue to live normal lives)
Paralyzed but on a stairway to heaven
Now are my lucky numbers really 9 or 11?
Many many people continue to live normal lives
(Many many people continue to live normal lives)
Can't you see all the attention I'm givin'?
Now won't you have my children Mrs. Chelsea McGibbon?
