Track Name: Livin' Fast
its been twenty five years and I cant face my fears
I tried solving my problems with a flood of beers
but I cant go back and I cant make things right
so I’m gonna fuck shit up tonight , lets fuck shit up tonight

When you faced all odds and feel so lost
everything you know feels like another mirage
but theres no escaping this hopeless plight
so lets fuck shit up tonight , were gonna fuck shit up tonight


we wont give in to the standards of this world
we wont go on living life unheard
we wont give in to the standards of this world
we wont go on living life unheard
enjoy it now because it wont last we wont slow down cuz were living fast

I’ve come this far and its been real hard
sometimes you feel like you don’t know who you are
well I got regrets you know thats right
so I’m gonna fuck shit up tonight lets fuck shit up tonight
I tried solving my problems with my two fists
but I never really thought it would come to this
theres no turning back and no end in sight
so I'm gonna fuck shit up tonight lets fuck shit up tonight

we wont give in to the standards of this world
we wont go on living life unheard
we wont give in to the standards of this world
we wont go on living life unheard
enjoy it now because it wont last we wont slow down cuz were living fast

these blacked out nights are the ones that ill miss
we're the living definition of risk
we wont give into the standards of this world
we wont go on living life unheard
even at our best we're not as good as most
so raise your drink lets have another toast
heres to the nights we wont remember and the days we wont forget
out being young and dumb with my friends
Track Name: Numb
When I open up my eyes I fight the urge to puke
And it really doesn't matter which way that you look
There's rape murder and death everywhere
The general masses just don't seem to care
So I try to hold onto what I know is right
Even when it seems there's no hope in sight
I'm sickened by reality and searching for escape
I just need something to ease the pain away

Cuz the world is fucked up and so are we
Just a downward spiral for humanity
I'm filled with rage and apathy
Cuz the world is fucked up and so are we

In one way or another we all numb our minds
Addictions come in many different types
Is it drugs religion or alcohol
Which crutch do you prefer to deal with the world
Now we're self medicating just to make it through the day
But we're all fucked up so its all in vain
So enraged and confused but I guess it's nothing new
In a world like this we all need a vice or two

Cuz the world is fucked up and so are we
Just a downward spiral for humanity
Cuz the world is fucked up and so are we
So I want to remain totally numb
Track Name: Losing My Grip
My visions getting blurry
And I can barely see
I’m reaching out for something
Something to help me breathe
The lies are all around us
They consume us everyday
Is there anyone I can trust?
Does it matter anyway?


Losing my grip
Losing my grip
I’m losing my grip on reality
I can barely think
I can barely see
I’m loosing my grip on reality

now the walls are closing in
can’t distinguish foe or friend
I'm a danger to myself
Now I’ll face this living hell

Everyone is an enemy
They’re everywhere I go
Can’t trust any one I see
I won’t trust anyone I know
They all say I’m paranoid
They say that I’m insane
My life feels like such a void
I want you to feel the same


Losing my grip
Losing my grip
I’m losing my grip on reality
I can barely think
I can barely see
I’m loosing my grip on reality

now the walls are closing in
can’t distinguish foe or friend
I’m become a danger to myself
Now I’ll face this living hell

Everyday is another fight
Sick of fighting with myself
Reality is nowhere in sight
Some one get me some help
Struggling is such a waste
It always end up the same
Always running from the hate
Always running into the pain
Track Name: Trapped Like Rats
does every day have to be the same?
I've got half a mind to put a bullet in my brain
I'm sick to death of the same old shit
its like I'm running in place and it makes me sick
does anyone else here feel the same way
like your staring at the world through bars on a cage
so I'm climbing up the walls and I'm pacing all around
like a rat in a cage and i wanna get out!


trapped like rats we're trapped like rats


we're trapped likes rats in a cage
dreaming of the day we escape
now we're spreading like the plague
these rats will rule the world some day

does everything have to frustrate me?
I get angrier every time that I blink
I'm so fed up with everything that I see
its like the whole fucking world is out to get me
does anyone else here seem to relate
or am I all alone imprisoned by my rage
so I'm biding my time and plotting everyday
just a rat in a cage and I wanna break free

trapped like rats we're trapped like rats

we're trapped likes rats in a cage
dreaming of the day we escape
now we're spreading like the plague
these rats will rule the world some day

plotting every day and we wanna break free
