Track Name: Hong Kong
In a run down laundromat built in the 60's
In a burned out campground living with the hippies
In a sundown shoot-out given no reason
Everybody go west I just wanna go eastern

I wanna go
I wanna go
I wanna go
I wanna go to Hong Kong!

In a college rush coked out afternoon beat-down
With a back room gift shop middle-aged meltdown
In a gunman courtroom given no specifics
Everybody go home I just wanna go pacific

I wanna go
I wanna go
I wanna go
I wanna go to Hong Kong!

I wanna go
I wanna go
I wanna go
I wanna go to Hong Kong!

Come with me baby come with me
Come with me baby come with me
Come with me baby come with me
Come with me baby come with me

Come with me baby come with me!
Come with me baby come with me!
Come with me baby come with me!
Come with me baby come
To Hong Kong!
Track Name: Colours
Your colour is red
We're better off dead
We paid for our future
But you sold us out instead

Innocence
Always bliss
Black inked fifth grade fingerprints
Nothing gained
All in doubt
Scrub to the bone to get the colours out

I'm a generous narcissist
Colour me government
Suicidal in denial
Born to live in someone else's style

Interpol
Got no soul
Black ops teen pops birth control
Negligence
On the fence
Choke at the throat to make the colours blend

Innocence
Always bliss
Black inked fifth grade fingerprints
Nothing gained
All in doubt
Scrub to the bone and get the colours out

Get the colours out
The colours out
The colours out
The colours out
Track Name: Everything You Need
There's gotta be heartache
Before there can ever be a hope
But I don't wanna take you there
No I don't wanna break you down
There's gotta be devastation
Before there can ever be repair
But I don't wanna make you sad
I only wanna clear the air

I will give you peace of mind if you give yourself to me
I will leave all this behind if you promise not to need

There's gotta be conversation
Before there can ever be a doubt
But I don't wanna make you fall
No I don't wanna fall back in
And even with the best intentions
I'll only get yours and you'll get mine
But I don't wanna make you shine
I'll only kill the light inside

I will give you diamond rings if you only believe
The best of things in life my dear are surely never free

I have everything you need
I am everything you need
Come what may and what will be
I have everything you need

I have everything you need
I am everything you need
Track Name: Tree
All around
Everywhere
Everyday
Stuck down knee deep
It's a war and it's here In my head

All around
Everywhere
Everyday
Stuck down knee deep
Something deep Inside of me
Took control up in the tree

When she fell
Long ago
I couldn't reach
I was stuck down too far
Lost my head but now I see
There she lay beneath the tree

All around
Everyday
Everywhere
Stuck down head deep
All this hate Inside of me
Grows and grows like a tree
Track Name: Generations
We used to dream of our little own space
Safe and sound from the human race
Just a matter of time slipping by
Such a waste of good precious life
I remember back when there were no future plans
No waving hands or little rubber bands
But there’s a curiosity that still shows
Knowledge leads to laziness If you can’t to let it go
So we divide ourselves, divide our lives
We don’t feel the need to apologize
For our selfish hearts now find the need to provide

And we’re all grown up,
Did you expect it?
Will you accept it?
Now that your world is changing
We’re all used up
But will you erase it?
Or will you embrace this?
While living in perfect know how

Moving to the city with the pretty little lights
Waking up at noon and staying up all night
We made waves on this silent old town
Long forgotten equations that were never written down
We were told long ago that we’d long for these days
Memories fade and they just wash away
But we never change
The same old parts just get re-arranged

And we’re all grown up,
Did you expect it?
Will you accept it?
Now that your world is ending
We’re all used up
But will you erase it?
Or you will you embrace this?
While living in perfect know-how

If you sit back and take some thought
You’ll only understand
It’s always in the middle that our lives begin to make most sense
Track Name: Time Will Tell
If you need a bit of happiness and wanna go outside
If you need somebody to go along for the ride
Well maybe we all just need a bit of fun
Drinking all day or getting high in the sun
We’ll get a little messed up and take it to the streets
We’ll get a little messed up bringing all the heat

Hello hello
I know you don’t know me but I know you all too well
Never even met you but I never will forget you
Gotta keep you to myself
Hello Hello
I know you don't know me but I know you all too well
Never heard of you but I think I might love you
I guess only time will
Only time will tell

Well I’m fortunate son with a fortunate soul
And I know when my luck is about to go two-fold
I’ve learned to give time for all my wounds to heal
So tonight I’m taking so much more than I can feel
And if this world ends before we see dawn
Then I hate to rush but can we get a move on?

Hello hello
I know you don’t know me but I know you all too well
Never even met you but I never will forget you
Gotta keep you to myself
Hello Hello
I know you don’t know me but I know you all too well
Never even seen me but I think you might need me
I guess only time will
Only time will tell
Track Name: Have It Your Way
You can run
You can hide
You can have it your way
You can kick
You can scream
You can make it your day
You can laugh
You can cry
You can stand on your own
You can walk
You can talk
You can bury your bone

Nobody understands
A boy is just a man
Without all the cracks and holes
Everyone knows for sure
A woman is just a girl
A little more composed

Mother can you hear me screaming at the back door?
It's cold outside and I just can't take it no more
Daddy can you see jumping in the back seat?
I'm gonna need a ride cause' tonight I lost my feet

You can win
You can lose
You can shake you fists
You can give
You can take
You can beg for it
You can work
You can play
You can say that you'll stay
You can love
You can hate
You can have it your way, your way

Nobody comprehends
All of the hours spent
When you're just trying you make new friends
The city will get you down
The pay will keep you around
Looking for a way out

Mother can you hear me screaming at the back door?
It's cold outside and I just can't take it no more
Daddy can you see jumping in the back seat?
I'm gonna need a ride cause' tonight I lost my feet

Mother can you hear me screaming at the back door?
It's cold outside and I just can't take it no more
Daddy can you see living for a new day?
I'm healing and I'm feeling that you're gonna have to have it your way
You're gonna have to have it your way
I know you're gonna have it your way
I know you're gonna have it your way
Track Name: Radio Wrong
The radio song is plastic synthetic love
On Radio Wrong, where it fits so nicely
Zombie TV - in the land of the free
Telling all good people who they're better off to be

The more you tune in, the more you're bound to tune me out
The more you buy in, the more you disconnect the ends to...

Top of the charts with the Artificial Hearts
They're playing back up to a pre-teen know-it-all love song
Radio Hate - where the devil celebrates
He was driving numbers before you even learned to count them

The more you buy it, the more you're gonna lose
The more you fight it, the more you disconnect the ends to...

Radio Bliss is right at your fingerprints
Making brand names out of debutantes and junkies
The bored and the vain - at the top of the food chain
Just like children, they're waiting for someone to explain
So let me explain baby...

I'd kill myself on-air for the radio
Cause' I can't live without my share of the radio
What's left is what's become of the radio
Cause' there's only room for one on the radio
Track Name: Million Dollar Soldier
Nobody cares about anyone at all
What's in it for them?
Few will rise while others fall
This world is wicked, filled with evil and with sin
The soldier left with only strength to find within

Better hide the kids
Hide the wives
Boss man's coming better hide the knives
Live to work
Work to live
Boss man takes until there's nothing left to give
From a million fighting arms
Until the count is down to one
The soldier keeps fighting till' he gets the job done

The million dollar soldier
Is a billion dollar warrior
In a trillion dollar death march
For a one cent pay off

All the cowards meeting minds and shaking hands
Heavy heads with heavy mouths talk heavy plans
Trustworthy souls are swept beneath the ocean floor
The soldier wonders what the hell he's fighting for

The million dollar soldier
Is a billion dollar warrior
In a trillion dollar death march
For a one cent pay off

One million soldiers go marching on
One million soldiers, a dying cause
One million soldiers keep fighting on
One million soldiers will get picked off
And when the system breaks down
And everything around turns to ashes and dust on the ground
The soldier will stand so proud

But the million dollar soldier
Is a billion dollar warrior
In a trillion dollar death march
For a one cent pay off
Track Name: Breather Holes
Our destiny is on hold
The future has been bought and sold
The ending will unfold
And everything is frozen

No room for us to grow
No chance to pass on what we know
We’ve sank to our new low
And everything is broken

We used to live so high
We used to own the sky
Our dreams to live forever only buried us alive

The show’s become a bore
No need to find out what’s in store
We’re shaken to the core
We used to breath so freely, now we’re…

Seeking breather holes
