Track Name: Monkeys with a Button
We're like monkeys with a button
Make us feel good help us to forget
Willfully ignorant
Help us to be distracted

We all wanna lay down at night
Just close our eyes and go to sleep
Except i can’t sleep at all these days
With the nightmares of some foreign place

We're like monkeys with a button
Make us feel good Help us to forget
Willfully ignorant
Find ways to be distracted

Hide behind false ignorance
Insisting on our innocence
Sharing the same guilt everyone
Sing along to the same song

With confidence
We’re bustin’ out our fancy clothes
And dustin’ off our dancing shoes
For our own funeral

We’ll all tweet
omg the best eulogy
That party was so much fun
But where did everyone go?
Hashtag we’re all dead

We're like monkeys with a button
Make us feel good Help us to forget
Willfully ignorant
Find ways to be distracted

We built these machines
To dig our own graves
And now we’re working hard
Everyday to maintain
Do you think that
We should shut them down
Do you think that
We could shut them down

We’ll sleep under the stars at night
When we’ve finally lost everything
And we can finally breathe
We’ll have everything we could ever need
When we’ve finally lost everything
Everything
Track Name: In the Airwaves
Concentration of power is corrupted
Guns and money to keep the masses in line
Re-emergence of common language
Act as one and our voice begins to

Rise up
Spreading now it’s out of control
It’s in the airwaves
From the tower to the palm of our hands

It’s our hope
To be as one
It’s our hope
To be as one

For the best we don’t live forever
Cynicism sets in and gets worse with age
Every generation is like the last one
Every one of them says that things must

Change
No direction now
Watch the leaderless
Movement advance

It’s our hope
To be as one
It’s our hope
To be as one
Track Name: We Are Evil
I am sick of your stories
I am sick of your stories
All the whining and the crying
They are just like
They are just like mine

We sold our spines and
Poisoned our minds
And this is what we get
Cause we are
Evil

Nothing but evil
Only evil
Always evil
Everyone is evil

We do the best we can
To hide ourselves
From the truth we fear
Hiding from the light

We start to blend into one another
A big gray cloud hovering over
These poor little creatures that would otherwise
Be playing in the sun with great big smiles
Play in the sun with great big smiles

So let’s sing a song where
Nobody’s wrong and everyone can agree
We are perfect and live in harmony

We’ll cover our eyes and tell the lie
We’ll say this isn’t all about money
Cause we are evil

Nothing but evil
Only evil
Always evil
Everyone is evil
