Track Name: Modern Problem
(Lyrics by Jonas Kilker)

Modern problems control how we react today
You must not disappoint a soul or they will turn away from you
and they'll get everyone else to do the same
Modern problems are getting in the way

It used to go unheard when one would talk about another
Now everyone is acting like they're fucking bothered
By the jokes and satirical comments
I won't offend you but I can't keep this promise
Sometimes it happens and you'll just have to live with it
Not every word carries the weight that you tie to it
I know that if I cross the line I'll have to pay for it
But often times you want attention man you're full of shit
But you will get it
You know you always will
People need it
Enough to want to kill

Modern problems control how we react today
You must not disappoint a soul or they will turn away from you
and they'll get everyone else to do the same
Modern problems are getting in the way

You just want everyone else to be compassionate
About your problems, I declare irrelevant
this world of ours It's chaos and madness
You're god damn lucky if you sleep on a mattress
So shut up I don't care if I offend you
You're not in need the people will not turn to you
You're not helping us progress throughout the ages
Another useless chapter for our history book pages

Modern problems control how we react today
You must not disappoint a soul or they will turn away from you
and they'll get everyone else to do the same
Modern problems are getting in the way

Modern problems you can't get away
Modern problems you live through everyday
Modern problems in everything I say
Modern problems are driving me insane
Track Name: Wasting My Time
(Lyrics by Jonas Kilker)

If I say she's smart
it doesn't mean I think you're dumb
You're running my patience thin
and I'm just trying to have my fun

One problem at a time
I gotta take this seriously
You can't keep butting heads
and then pretending it's unknowingly

I can't keep putting up and
giving in, I made up my mind
There's nothing worse than acting like you aren't

Wasting My Time
Wasting My Time
Wasting My Time
Wasting My Time

Some people consider it luck
But it's just unconscious persistence
It's a lack common know-how
that you dropped off in the distance

When I fucking let my guard down
that's when you commit your crime
I can't keep faking my smile
Cause you'll just keep on

Wasting My Time
Wasting My Time
Wasting My Time
Wasting My Time
Track Name: Living Dead (and Annoying)
(Lyrics by Jonas Kilker)

I don't need no PSA to know what's right and wrong
I can have have fun on my own I don't need a bong
My brain works just fine my imagination is clear
It's not cool it's poison don't just tell me what I wanna hear

I don't want your poison
It's driving me away
Sorry all my pothead friends
if I just ruined your day
(And my high!)

Do what you want but don't do it around me
Sorry if your not my pal just cause I won't smoke weed
I gotta get stuff done I can't just lie in bed
I've got better things to do than hang out with the living dead
Track Name: Government Gave Me Cancer
(Lyrics by Ethan Parker)

Fuck politics
I don’t need that shit
All 43 presidents
Can all suck my dick

Government gave me cancer
They don't hold the answer
Obama at the public mass
Has his head shoved up his ass

Fuck politics
I don’t need that shit
All 43 presidents
Can all suck my dick

Congress full of corruption
They'll never function
Uncle Sam’s constant crimes
Soon they'll serve their fucking time

Fuck politics
I don’t need that shit
All 43 presidents
Can all suck my dick

Lower taxes for the wealthy
First lady wants us to be healthy
Practicing their unkind ways
Proves we're a bunch of fucking slaves
Track Name: Girthman
(Lyrics by Ethan Parker and Chris Rennie)

Here he comes down the way
Girthman will surely save the day
Hands by his side tool in his pocket
Don't be afraid for it’s not a rocket

Big and hairy wide and scary what’s his name
Girthman

It's really gross and really stinky
No lie it’s not longer than his pinky
The saddest superhero on this earth
Can't run or fly he’s got to much girth

Big and hairy wide and scary what’s his name
Girthman

The lamest superhero we’ve ever seen
His penis is quite obscene
No super power that he can use
Short temper and he'll blow his fuse

Big and hairy wide and scary what’s his name
Girthman
Track Name: Reputation
(Lyrics by Jonas Kilker)

You can Call it freedom if it satisfies
We can't repair society no matter what we try
We'll always sink below no matter who's on top
If we don't find change then this countries gonna rot.

Total domination, kill
Civil limitation, kill
Dehumanize a third world nation
Eliminate our reputation

Searching for an answer but they're not even trying
Impossible to understand with all their fucking lying
I can't take this anymore the government gave me cancer
Testing all their tactics but what is the answer?
War

Total domination, kill
Civil limitation, kill
Dehumanize a third world nation
Eliminate our reputation

Eliminate our reputation
Track Name: My Fault
(Lyrics by Jonas Kilker)

Fuck you
What do you want me to do
You never make it clear or easy

It’s on you
Don’t try to pull me through
Into all your madness

It’s not my fault
(It’s all your fault)
Track Name: Post Office
(Lyrics by Chris Rennie)

Stuck in the post office can’t get a break
Line out the door i’m on my last fucking leg
If you want to work here incompetence is key
I just wanna ship this shit can’t you fucking see?

Post office sucks
Post office sucks

I have all this shit that I really need to ship
The lady that works here is a stupid bitch
The parking lot is full and I can’t get a spot.
The U.S. Post office needs a bigger lot.

Post office sucks
Post office sucks
Track Name: Sad
(Lyrics by Jonas Kilker)

I'm so sad
Track Name: Dead Weight
(Lyrics by Jonas Kilker)

You keep bringing me down
You ain't nothing but dead weight
You keep coming around
You ain't nothing but dead weight

Dead weight
Dead weight

You can't bring us down
We're tired of your dead weight
We're done hanging around
We won't be your dead weight.

Dead weight
Dead Weight
Track Name: Little Debbie
(Lyrics by Ethan Parker)

When I'm down and lonely
and I got nothing to do
Sitting around just like a piece of poo
I gotta get up and go to the store
Can’t live without them I need some more
Who you gonna count on?

Little Debbie

A whole new world
A whole new light
I go fucking bonkers with brownies in my sight
I stand on my feet when I see the tasty treats
God you know who I love
Who do you love?

Little Debbie
Track Name: Parasydic
(Lyrics by Jonas Kilker)

When we first met I was sure it couldn't be
Now it's 2 years later and I can finally see
My instinct was right, it was too good to be true
You hid it so well from me, now I know my every fear was sane

You said you were over him, he was cruel to you
You wouldn't stop saying his name, I still didn't have a clue
Never thought I'd see the day you promised wouldn't come
Promises don't mean a thing when you're not with the one you love

I was just a rebound for a year and half
You never thought more of me, you just wanted to pass
All of your feelings you made so clear to see
I spent so much time making you happy, but what about me?

It's not all your fault, you could have kept away from me
Year and a half rebound, it's so clear to see
You said that you wanted to spend your life with me
You were just scared, cause you thought you'd never hear from him again

But you did,
He's back, all you'd ever want and all you'll ever need
When you're not having fun don't come back to me and
When he lies and makes you cry, I hope that you'll see what I see

I was just a rebound for a year and half
You never thought more of me, you just wanted to pass
All of your feelings you made so clear to see
I spent so much time making you happy, but what about me?
Track Name: Prove It
(Lyrics by Jonas Kilker)

Prove that I exist
Show me it's all real
I need more answers
I don't know how I feel

I wanna find out just how it works
and how I can do it too
Life is tough but why do we figure?
There's gotta be something to prove

Never once did I question my existence
or anyone else around
But now my misconceptions have got me thinking
Is there something I have not found?

Prove that I exist
Show me it's all real
I need more answers
I don't know how I feel

How can some people be so sure
in the decisions they convey?
How can some people know all the answers
each and every day?

I wanna know all the answers too
I wanna be smart just like you
I wanna be sure that I'll be alright
I wanna know everything until I die

Prove that I exist
Show me it's all real
I need more answers
I don't know how I feel
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Die
(Lyrics by Jonas Kilker)

We all know that it's not fair
But we have got no choice in life
You can cry all you want
Nothing's gonna change tonight

I dream of falling down the stairs
This could be my last breath
I'm not saying I can't accept
But I am not ready for death.

There I am on the ground, I'm not ready, not yet, I Don't wanna die
There I am soaked in water, I'm not ready, not yet, I Don't wanna die
There I am with marks all over, I'm not ready, not yet, I Don't wanna die
There you are with tears in eyes, you weren't ready, not tonight, you never said goodbye

Stay at home and don't go out
This will keep you safe and sound
You can't die, you're not alive
You aren't even missing out

The visions getting all too real
I see everything I hear
All of us deserve the grave
The world has made this very clear

There I am on the ground, I'm not ready, not yet, I Don't wanna die
There I am soaked in water, I'm not ready, not yet, I Don't wanna die
There I am with marks all over, I'm not ready, not yet, I Don't wanna die
There you are with tears in eyes, you weren't ready, not tonight, you never said goodbye
