Track Name: Tonights the Night
Tonights the Night

I'm no psychologist
but I know that i'm a pessimist
I seem to destroy
all the things I enjoy
I have a tendency
to fuck up so fuckin perfectly
I don't know why
but I feel like tonights the night
I fall apart

Hook x4

If there's a god, he keeps me alive
just to fuck with me till I die
Hook x4

I dont wanna die but I wish I were dead
I dont wanna die but I wish I were dead
I dont wanna die but I wish I were dead
I dont wanna live life in my head

BASS!!!

Chorus
Tonights the night
Tonights the night
Tonights the night
Riff x4

Verse
Oh misery
don't you see what you done to me
Even all the alcohol
it cant make me forget it all
Pushed up against this wall
I got nowhere to run
I don't know why
but I feel like tonights the night
I come undone

Hook x4

When I was born, a fuse was lit
and tonight it goes tick tick tick
I dont wanna die but I wish I were dead
I dont wanna die but I wish I were dead
I dont wanna live but I dont wanna die
I'm petrified of what lies a head

Chorus
Tonights the night x4
I come undone

Break
My hens have come home to roost
Every thread of me is comin' loose
Here I stand, a broken man
I once was lost, and I still am

Chorus
Finale
x4
Track Name: Out of the Blue
Out of the Blue

Verse
Oh well look at you
calling out of the blue
premeditated laughs
saying all the words you know i like you to

Always knew me too well
how to get under my skin
all the right veins to touch
all the buttons to push in

Pre Chorus
Its all the subtleties
that's what's obsessing me it seems
in between the lines of what she says
is what she means

CALLIN'

Chorus
Out of the blue x4

Verse
You take me for a fool
undress, and watch as my drool hits the floor
sophistication only gets me as far as your door

Stuck in your web
of passive aggression
Stuck, in my head
with misplaced affections

Misplaced affections
(passive aggression)
Malicious intentions
(passive aggression)
Your self satisfaction
(passive aggression)
My reluctant erection

COMIN'

Chorus

Finale
Track Name: Conveyor Belt
Conveyor Belt

Verse
Back to the grind
Back on the assembly line
we are the modern cogs
they work us like dogs

She can do the words
he can do the tune
they can do the mix
the release is in June

People don't care
what was made here or there
They'll like it cause its new
they'll like it cause we tell them to

wrap it all up nice
put on a pretty bow
polish up the turd
they will never know

Chorus

Its a conveyor belt
Its a conveyor belt

-- where did all the people go?--

Just a big machine
Just a big machine3

(Just the sheep
and the hogs
the fuckin pigs and the dogs)

Its a product line
Its a product line


(Its all a box of bullsh it
and you're buyin' it
Its a fast food chain
it all tastes the same)

Its a conveyor be lt
its a conveyor belt

Verse
Who are you
You can be who we tell you to
You'll be happier
lets us do the work its easier

we can cut your hair
tell you what to wear
tell you how to be
so you don't have to care

Who are you
Who are you
who are you
who are you

Chorus

Its a conveyor belt
Its a conveyor belt

--There's no “u” in human any more--

Just a big machine
Just a big machine

(A bunch of zombies
wearing abercrombie )

It is a product line
It is a product line

(Gotta spend big bucks
to define yourself
buy it and be unique
just like everyone else)

Its a conveyor belt
its a conveyor belt

Break
Chorus

Its a conveyor belt
You are loosing yourself

--Go through the motions--
(Until you die)

Its a conveyor belt
you are loosing yourself

(Close your eyes
and let your life go by)

Its a conveyor belt
you are loosing yourself

(Your casket
is made of plastic)

Its a society
collapsing quietly

(Nobody cares
about anything else
everybody's
stuck on a conveyor belt)

FINALE
Track Name: You Make Me Sick
You Make Me Sick

Verse

I feel sick
in the pit of my stomach
I cant
scream
The air is suffocating me

I feel like shit
I feel like I cant handle it
I want you so bad
it makes me want to vomit

Pre Chorus

I want it bad
My body aches
I don't know how
but I know I have to wait
but I want it now
I want it now
I want it now
I want it now
you're words they stick
to the back of my head
that look in your eyes
you make me
sick

Hook

Verse

My lungs are filled
With words I wanna say
I'll try to stay calm and cool
its hard your far away

My heart is ten thousand bpm's
I feel like I have got the bends
Oh the spinning never stops
I hope this sickness never ends

PreChorus

I must be mad
yes, I know its late
i'm just callin' cause your far away
and I cannot wait
I want it now
I need you now
The animal inside me
is dyin to get out
That night will sit
In the back of my mind
all this fucking time
you make me
sick

Hook

Break
I remember your tail pipe
I watched the fumes fade into the night
ever since i've felt sick inside
I need my medicine
feel like a skeleton
need you to touch my skin
so I
feel
real
again
