Track Name: City of Vain
Turned off casue I here you Talkin, and it's got nothing to do with you, Your dreams, Fuck off, Cool to be you! Turned out I missed the dog and pony show, here's my bills, go burry your nose in blow, provoke numb thought, yeah, nobody knows.

Let the river rise, let the river rise!
Let it fill up to my blue eyes,
Pray for rain, gotta pray for rain!
Let it wash away all the sinners and vain
Let it wash away all the sinners and vain!

Say HEY!
Welcome to the river city of vain!

Nothing but contempt on your face, and I don't think Ill ever miss this place, My heart, it died yeah long ago! the morose and hip come out to play, they never change, and I don't think I'll stay, no I never liked 'em anyways.

Let the river rise, let the river rise!
Let it fill up to my blue eyes,
Pray for rain, gotta pray for rain!
Let it wash away all the sinners and vain
Let it wash away all the sinners and vain!

Say HEY!
Welcome to the river city of vain!
Track Name: American Nightmare
Been starring at that ceiling for way too long
Stressin and your dwellin how it all went wrong
Deep inside, like your drowning like you'll never make amends.

Listen when you hear me say I understand
I know that this was never part of the big plan
See it through, I'm here for you
Gonna be here to the end.

From darkness to light,
from the day and into the night
Your whole worlds crashin down on you!

Pick yourself off the bathroom floor
Turn it all around like you've done before
Earn your keep, make your way
No time for wasted days
Believe it in your heart that your gonna survive,
Struggle is the only way you know your alive
Enjoy your friends, retain your youth
If you got nothin, you got nothin to lose!

From darkness to light,
from the day and into the night
Your whole worlds crashin down on you!
Track Name: P.M.A.
You used to make me so hateful, So angry by the way you took advantage of the lonley and the kids.
A fool in wolves clothing, you think you run things
This "Mob" mantality has got progression on the skids
You talk they follow, so empty , so hollow
Turning soft minds into mush, doesn't make you credible
You call it power, but I call it coward
You know, I cant wait to watch you fall!

You can see my faith has been restored
I can see redemptions rocked me right down to my core
Away with hate, Away with negativity
I feel a change today!
I found that PMA

Denying what you've done, just like a politician
You smile, wink, and knod, but I kow your not my friend.
When they try and break free, you slander, you mudsling
Ruining other reputations, Just to save your own!
You call it power, but I call it coward
You know, I can't wait to watch you fall!

You can see my faith has been restored
I can see redemptions rocked me right down to my core
Away with hate, Away with negativity
I feel a change today!
I found that PMA
Track Name: The Rift
Close my door to my beat up car
As swagger into a neighborhood bar
Waive my hands at the old bar keep
As I wipe the beer from my favriote seat
Familiar voice asks me "what you drinkin'?"
As he slides me down a tumbler and a bottle of Gin
First drink in years, I can't remember the last
As I close my mind to remember the past

Hold my head up high this time
And I know we never saw eye to eye
Think about where i've come and been
Like taking a right hook to the chin
Think about comming in last
How it all went by so fast
I look back on my past I say why?

Heard the TV and made me so mad
The famous complaining how they got it so bad
They say "I'm so depressed and sad"
While they've wasted opportunities that I never had
The media ask for my sympathy
For some rich ignorant fuck's warped reality
Makes me sick to see all the privilege
While millions struggle check to check just to pay their mortgage.

Hold my head up high this time
And I know we never saw eye to eye
Think about where i've come and been
Like taking a right hook to the chin
Think about comming in last
How it all went by so fast
I look back on my past I say why?
Track Name: Old Tavern
Davey crawls outta bed this morning
To a place that feels so foreign
He grits his teeth and lights a smoke
Drags his finger across his throat
With a bed full of piss and a head full of lead
Wishing to himself he'd be better off dead
A losing streak week after week
All meds gone stright to his head

Neon signs and little white lines
Well you better watch your back cause the citys got eyes
No here the bars never set high
Old Tavern, Drunk and High
A place where dreams come to die!

Well its two o'clock and he's done it again
Stranded on the corner of 7th and N
When will he learn, that he's been burned
abandonded at sea on the American Tern
Pleading with himself to put it all behind
The two faced motherfucker's are standing in line
To do his drugs, free tattoos
Squatting at his house while consuming his booze

Neon signs and little white lines
Well you better watch your back cause the citys got eyes
No here the bars never set high
Old Tavern, Drunk and High
A place where dreams come to die!

You've got your drunks theives and heretics
Johnny in the corners a heroin addict
Pushers, Punks, and hipster cliques
5 bags in the back trying to hump a chick
