Track Name: 50 Foot Robot
Death by precise data packet
Wrapped in a plate armored jacket
Zeros and ones of instructions
One hundred tons of destruction
But he believes he's a beautiful machine

Needless and selfless but yet prolonging his longing
What he has trouble discerning is no anomaly in wiring
There's nothing in his programming for a sense of belonging
He needs to believe he needs to believe
He's a beautiful beautiful machine

If only they could give him a mechanical heart

He needs to believe he's a beautiful machine
He needs to believe he's a beautiful (x2)

He needs(x8)
He needs to believe

If only they could give him a mechanical heart (x2 robot voice)
Track Name: Bits
She gives you pixels
She gives you bits
You give her comments
You giver her hits
She's got her reasons
She must transmit
You got your feelings
They benefit
You know she likes to get all dressed up
She knows you wanna have so much fun
You know she likes to get, likes to get all dressed up

He burns
She Burns
He burns

She burns
He burns
She burns

She gives you pixels
She gives you bits
You give her comments
You giver her hits
She's got her reasons
She must transmit
You got your feelings
They benefit
You've lost true love and its left you so alone
Always pretend always pretend
Her bits will give you lovely love that fits

She is your digital god
Your technological facade
She's become your digital god
Your technological facade so
Send your prayers in hexadecimal
and she'll compress her blessings screen deep
Send your prayers in hexadecimal
and she'll compress her blessings screen deep

Check your dignity at the day you were born
Get in line today to have your soul shorn
Show us some skin, show us some skin
Be a friend strike a pose
You could pretend, you could pretend
Her bits will give you lovely love that fits
Track Name: Breakneck Punk
Johnny was a breakneck punk
Fire blooded was the way to be
Sling a few strings on his guitar
To prove to the world he's a star
Till along came a man in black clothes
Waiting right beside that age old crossroads
He said,"You got the stuff, its your time.
Just sign right here by the dotted line."

Johnny cracked a smile through the side of his eye
Pulled out a switchblade and said,"Its Mine."
Johnny slit his wrist, with blood in his fist
Put red to the paper now he's on the list
Johnny knew who he was and the devil asked why
Johnny said,"So I can live a lie, that's right.
So I can live a lie while the rest die buying."

All the angry young ladies
Will listen to him serenade um on his guitar
At the top of his lungs (x2)

He'll see the fists a rising
To fight the man behind him and they'll fall in line
To fight fire with fire (x2)

He's just so angry
He's just so angry yeah

They don't care about your empty soul
They don't care
They won't give two cents about your ugly role
They don't care

They don't care, they don't care
The kids don't care
Track Name: Town Pirate
I won't claim through my music to be a savior of men
Don't know how to be a rock god won't even pretend
I can't fix all your problems though I'm sure they hurt
Never lived in the projects with a dad I could curse
Just a kid from a small town with nothing to do
Holding shopping cart races so I won't feel so blue
No mask or persona just plain ol truth
I'm just like you and you're like me too

We keep on keeping on
Through it all nothing wrong
Biding time walk the line
Die to try and sigh at life
We're no one in particular
Just something peculiar
A feeling a thought a tune
We're going home not a minute too soon

Leave all your possessions inside of your home
Walk the loneliest road just to go it alone
At the end of the day everyone must atone for
Where to go from this fork in the road
Cause journey is long and the sunset draws near
You can't find your way the directions aren't clear
You're fresh out of gas and giving up hope
Losing yourself on this journey of scope

We keep on keeping on
Through it all nothing wrong
Biding time walk the line
Die to try and sigh at life
Were no one in particular
Just something peculiar
A feeling a thought a tune
We're going home not a minute too soon

I don't have all the answers or a scratch in the glass
Just give me one chance and I'll screw up so fast
I'm not really anyone that should matter to you
Just words and a tune for listening to
In the end I conclude all that hear this don't care
But to confirm to myself every thing that I fear
Come jump on in with my nothing in here
Come be no one with me so your mud'll get clear

We keep on keeping on
Through it all nothing wrong
Biding time walk the line
Die to try and sigh at life
We're no one in particular
Just something peculiar
A feeling a thought a tune
We're going home not a minute too soon
Track Name: Awesome Bomb
(incoherent talking)

Yay!
Track Name: 21st Century Digital Boy
I can't believe it
The way you look sometimes
Like a trampled flag on a city street
Oh yeah

And I don't want it
The things you're offering me
Civilized bar code, quick ID
Oh Yeah

Cause I'm a twenty first century digital boy
I don't know how to read but I got a lot a toys
My daddy's a lazy middle class intellectual
My mommy's on Valium, so ineffectual
Aint life a mystery

I can't explain it
Just what you're saying to me
Its going ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Oh yeah

Cause I'm a twenty first century digital boy
I don't know how to live but I got a lot a toys
My daddy's a lazy middle class intellectual
My mommy's on Valium, so ineffectual
Aint life a mystery

I thought I told you about no control
But now I guess I really don't know
Then you told me how much you had to suffer
Is that really all you have to offer

Twenty first century digital boy (x4)

Twenty first century digital boy
Twenty first century video boy
Twenty first century schizoid boy
Twenty first century digital boy
Yeah

All I want is all I really need

Written by Brett Gurewitz
Origionally performed by Bad Religion
Track Name: Ball n' Chain
There's a silence that claims a space in me
It pulls through hallowed ground
Shed our disappointment at a late night establishment
We can talk till the sunrise
If there's a purpose maybe you could shed some light
Should I fly or should I fight

Hide your eyes
its the end of the night
the sun is on its way
We'll burn the city down
If you still want me around
The end is on its way

Its a prison
My state of mind
Between the bored and the juvenile
We're making fools of ourselves
Thinking we could prove it all
Two hundred children with
Who knows what on their minds
I still can't look into their eyes

Hide your eyes
its the end of the night
the sun is on its way
We'll burn the city down
If you still want me around
The end is on its way

Another place another time
Maybe in another life
I could be your ball n chain
Track Name: War
Mortar and stone
Arranged in rows
Fortifying a lie
Frivolous needs
Passions to feed
A fragile spirit must oblige

I build walls I don't want to build
I fight wars I don't want to fight

Marching around my city
I built I watch I'm waiting
Marching around my city
I know that they can see me
Marching around my city
In truth wanting and needing

I build walls I don't want to build
I fight wars I don't want to fight

My walls came tumbling down (x4)

I am the sum of all these broken parts
a mess of human wreckage that'll never restart
the straws you grasp in a drunken stupe
the lies you wall up in weak little proofs

I'm a bad president, a deadly terrorist
The embodiment of a generation of narcissists
I'm the needy children, the wealthy biggot
the stupid kid in wal-mart always throwing a fit

I'm a loser and a quitter, ugly and bitter
I'm the old shoes that keep giving you blisters
I'm the lover of loving and lust for another
I'm also the other and the other's ugly mother

I'm the disapproving voice in the back of your mind
The arrogant hipster with the eyebrows you despise
I'm the fool and the fool who follows him
The nerdy little kid that doesn't have any friends

I'm a picture of duality, the conflict of reality
Walled up in a prison of insecurity
Protected by barriers of impersonality
All that's wrong with all the wrong waiting in me

Seven times seven ways he surrounded my hate
Seven by seven God made his case
My walls came tumbling down
I am Jericho
Track Name: Save Us
I've heard of wars
I've heard the rumors of those wars
I see the writing on the wall
And you could walk away but
Who will save you now
Who will save us

We were re-written
A contradiction dearest friend in face
I'll be the last one
The only one to fill the space between
Love and war forever more
A chance for no disgrace
Love and war forever more
A chance for no disgrace

Nation against nation
Kingdom against kingdom
While the earth shakes with birth pains
I'll stand before man and speak of grand plans
So mock me, flog me, toss me to the dogs
I'll witness your sickness and kiss a few fists.
So mock me, flog me, toss me to the dogs
Who will save you now
Who will save us

We were re-written
A contradiction dearest friend in face
I'll be the last one
The only one to fill the space between
Love and war forever more
A chance for no disgrace
Love and war forever more
A chance for no disgrace yeah

Love never ends, prophecy will
Language will cease, knowlege pass away
For we know in part, but when perfection arrives
Half thinking will end, now we see
Indistinctly, as in a mirror
But soon, face to face

Now I know, in part
What soon I will know fully
Just as I am, just as I am
Fully known
Now these three, remain
Faith, hope and love
But the greatest of these
The greatest of these is love
Track Name: Passionate Youth
Our lives cannot diminish
Till our hearts are finished
Till the hateful listen to the power, of love
Let go of all your fears
You're one of passions many peers

So show your stripes
And die with pride
Keep your gun
Right by your side

Our lives cannot diminish
Till our hearts are finished
Till the hateful listen to the power, of love
Let go of all your fears
You're one of passions many peers

So stay with me
And pray with me
Keep the truth
And prove your worth

We'll give our lives to prove we are right
And we'll die before we can take flight
Track Name: Broken Dreams
If we sing the bravest songs
That scream louder than guns and bombs
Regardless how we hold a tune
Who are we by eternal you

Let go of all the things we own
Walk the straight and narrow road
If we follow in the light of truth
Who are we by eternal you

If we preach of God and ways of old
Save a million broken souls
Regardless all the hearts we move
Who are we by eternal you

If we show that all the heavens move
By glory of the spoken truth
Regardless of the things we prove
Who are we by eternal you

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Track Name: And All The Love That Falls Between
A grandkid shows up at the door
He scraped his knee and had some scars from before
He wants to ride his bike but now there's tears in his eyes
He'll ride like the wind but forget how gravity applies

His tire's gone flat and he lost a shoe
He thinks he broke his arm but its just a little bruise
He's on his way back home but it just hurts too much to move
He tries to hide his eyes cause his pride feels so abused

I've got some bandaids and some milk in the fridge
There's some patches out back we'll get your bike on the mend
Now just walk off the pain, walk off the pain

He sees those eyes
And he thinks of her
We see those eyes
And we think of her

Walk off the pain, walk off the pain
Walk off the pain, walk off the pain

Walk off the pain, walk off the pain
Walk off the pain
Just walk it off and soon we'll all be.... home
