Onto You 03:15
You took your time in preparation Got your ducks all in a row Dotted your i’s and crossed out everything that’d Ever let them know You want it right, right, Say baby, are the ropes too tight? You concealed all your intentions And her tears inside a sack and as you Drove out to the desert you knew the Wind would hide your tracks She didn’t fight, fight, No baby, you wouldn’t put up with that But I’ll be there to greet you when you come back Back you in a corner cuz your pound of flesh is due The lies you have forsaken will awake anew Say that you feel nothing well we’ll see if that is true It’s gonna come back tenfold onto you You headed westward in direction killed the lights and had a smoke Turned down the radio to hear the words that dared escape her throat It’d be alright, right, Oh baby, I don’t know about that But you don’t have to worry about walking back Back you in a corner cuz your pound of flesh is due The lies you have forsaken will awake anew Say that you feel nothing well we’ll see if that is true It’s gonna come back tenfold onto you Lifted her gently from the backseat (when the lights go out, it’s turn-and-turn-about) And you kissed her tear-stained cheek (when the lights go out, it’s turn-and-turn-about) And as she begged for her life for the last time You put her to sleep Within the film across her eyes you saw the light die in your own And as you laid down in the sand a sense of finally coming home You’re gonna burn, the tables turned, and that’s that Cuz what you took from her you must give back Back you in a corner cuz your pound of flesh is due The lies you have forsaken will awake anew Say that you feel nothing well we’ll see if that is true It’s gonna come back, it’s gonna come back... Back you in a corner cuz your pound of flesh is due (when the lights go out) Back you in a corner cuz your pound of flesh is due (it’s turn-and-turn-about) Say that you feel nothing well we’ll see if that is true It’s gonna come back tenfold onto you

UCD 02:44
Tuition cuts and protests at Berkeley Occupy Wall Street to the East Late afternoon on a typical Friday The setting of a brewing disease Tents erected throughout the East quad Students together supporting a cause Legally challenging the fall of a nation but All she saw was vermin on the lawn (And then she) placed a call and baby You came running Shine your badge, clean your gun You are what this country’s built upon Noble, pure, and brave If they don’t know their place Then they’re gonna get it in the face Thank god you keep us safe Full riot gear cuz this shit could get messy Some kid on the ground could pose a serious threat Ease down on the trigger it can’t hurt to be ready These liberal brats will show some respect! The line marches in but you do not impress them They smile and they sing, they hold hands and link arms The feeling of impotence quickly ignites you An errant shout sets off the alarm (And then you) pulled out a can cuz baby You had a solution Shine your badge, clean your gun You are what this country’s built upon Noble, pure, and brave If they try to resist Then they’re gonna take one to the chest Thank god you keep us safe What does it take to draw the line? Stand face to face with a 20-year old? Watch her gasp and beg for air at your hand Do you think if roles were reversed that she’d understand? What does it take to push forth blind? To spray on as the last few fold? You took an oath to protect and serve, so tell me Is the badge on your chest worth the death of your soul? Shine your badge, clean your gun You are what this country’s built upon Noble, pure, and brave If they don’t know their place Then they’re gonna get it in the face Thank god you keep us safe Shine your badge, clean your gun You are what this country’s built upon Noble, pure, and brave If they try to resist Then they’re gonna take one to the chest Thank god you keep us safe

Final Straw 02:18
Twelve hours a day and you’re coming home with nothing Kids wanna know why it’s not like what’s on television He lies he lies You try you try to provide Your home’s a hell-hole and you’ve got no other option You board a boat / back of a truck to flee corruption He lies he lies You try you try to survive Final straw and we’ll rise up to prove We’ve nothing to lose cuz I’ll resist till there’s nothing left I’ll resist with my final breath He can say that the wall will go up and you’ll pay, but I’ll resist to my fingertips, even after death He sits in his tower counting coins and signing death warrants Surrounded by his cronies and his sycophants He lies he lies We’ll rise we’ll rise and organize! Final straw and we’ll rise up to prove that We won’t be used cuz I’ll resist till there’s nothing left I’ll resist with my final breath Normalization will abound if we set our weapons down, but I’ll resist to my fingertips, even after death Final straw and we’ll rise up to prove We’ve nothing to lose cuz I’ll resist till there’s nothing left I’ll resist with my final breath When the laws he creates fail to make this country great- I’ll resist to my fingertips, even after death

Hotel Hell 04:41
Metal walls hold in your calls As noxious gas pours in The debonair from the fair Seemed like such a gentleman And as you make your last mark On this life you realize That the devil is not very well disguised At hotel hell His eyes were blue His manners perfect So charismatic Like sent from heaven above His offer kind And so convenient It took mere moments To be giddy in love He said he built this place for girls just like you The fair was grand Just so exciting And your companion Seemed like the man of your dreams No warming bells No subtle signals No inner voices Till it was too late to leave You were living the life you’d only read about But in your books the guests always checked out Metals wall hold in your calls As noxious gas pours in The debonair from the fair Seemed like such a gentleman And as you make your last mark On this life you realize That the devil is not very well disguised At hotel hell He said “My Dear, My I please show you Throughout my building Do forgive the mess.” Though you were smart, Normally cautious, He was so earnest, And so easy to trust He said “Wait here, I must go and set the stage.” Your heart stopped when you heart the lock engage Metal walls hold in your calls As noxious gas pours in The debonair from the fair Seemed like such a gentleman And as you make your last mark On this life you realize That the devil is not very well disguised At hotel hell A dozen murders later They’ll realize what he was and when they String him up and hang him You’ll get some justice, love He’ll be buried under layers Of cement at his decree Cuz more than death he feared the Molestation of his body But his rest will be disturbed In the year 2016 When his exhumation’s ordered To check his identity Of all the horrors he’s rendered I pray his would be the worst When they open up his coffin And defile his corpse Metal walls hold in your calls As noxious gas pours in The debonair from the fair Seemed like such a gentleman And as you make your last mark On this life you realize That the devil is not very well disguised At hotel hell

Ruby's Ditch 03:25
South Dakota, 1992 Icy roads and the ditch he drove you into Sober up, my girl Door is stuck, somehow you slide out Does he grab you, do you shout “Let go”-- Will we ever know? You must have been so cold Only 19 years old Three months would pass till you’d be found at last 75 feet from the crash Where did you go when the flames died out? Did the cold Earth set you free? They’ll send patrols, but they’ll never know How in the ditch your body came to be, Ruby Time had not been good to you Their only clue was in your tattoo And his body down the ditch from you You must have felt so alone Did you beg to go home? The cops said foul play--you couldn’t have been missed that day Well then, love, who took you away? Where did you go when the flames died out? Did the cold Earth set you free? They’ll send patrols, but they’ll never know How in the ditch your body came to be, Ruby

The wind was blowin gales Sheets of water streamin down 30 days upon her decks and Land could not be found Off her starboard came a light and Hope soon turned to fear The flagship of her nemesis was Drawing near The first shot breached her hull, causing Water to pour in The second shot took his first mate Along with half his men But the captain he was strong He would welcome the night “I am not going down Without a fight!” We were alive when the sun came up But the night will set us free Servants of none down beneath the sun Seventh hell of the seven seas We were bound but now we’ve drowned we’ll Take vengeance on our enemies We will wait at the door to your crypt Down with the ship They tied him to the mast and Filled the hull with lead As water rose above his chest His heart was filled with dread They say the soul of a killer Cannot be saved And so he’ll sink down, down To his watery grave We were alive when the sun came up But the night will set us free Servants of none down beneath the sun Seventh hell of the seven seas We were bound but now we’ve drowned we’ll Take vengeance on our enemies We will wait at the door to your crypt Down with the ship
