Wake Up 02:43
Once upon a time When I lost my mind I was born again Well, I'm bored again And again, but then again, it never ends   And I feel so… I don't know (i don't know) I don't know We're all so...   Land of the free Home of the brave And there's no better place To be a slave, so just behave and don't complain From 9 to 5 You're not alive Wake up! Wake up! You never get to do What you want to do You never have the time And then you die Infinity is big but it can be small But it's all the same when you've seen it all I've seen the wall, I've seen it fall, I've seen it all And I feel so... I don't know (i don't know) I don't know I need to... Wake up, wake up, wake up Wake up!
I wish I didn't say what I said to you back then I just wanna go back to when you were still my friend So I will never say what I said to you again I just fell apart at the start instead of the end You just break my heart like it's an art instead of a sin And I don't know, no I don't know, what's wrong, oh what the hell is wrong with me I went outside and tried to hide Then I saw a UFO... Oh no I went back inside and I cried 'Cause there's nowhere left to go I live today to die another day And in the end it's all the same And there is a God, the world is flat If you believed in this then you believed in that And in the end its all the same In the end there is no end In the end there is no end... Oh no
We're all one, it will never end Infinity on both sides of our skin Am I dreaming when I breathe in? Reality is not my friend Oh no, here we go I'm feeling fetal this afternoon and I kinda wanna blow up the moon I'm feeling like I'm in the womb Or maybe it's just my tomb Too much tripping, it's lost it's fun But once you start you're never done You can't go back once you're here I've lost my hope and I've lost my fear Oh no, here we go I'm losing my body, I'm losing my soul I've lost my mind and I've lost control And you're so sure that you're so pure That I'm diseased and there's no cure 'Cause I don't see wrong or right No, I can't see black or white 'Cause I only live in shades of gray So I can't feel a word you say And I've been stuck here for so long And still I feel I don't belong You can't go back once you're here I've lost my hope and I've lost my fear Oh no, here we go I'm losing my body, I'm losing my soul I've lost my mind and I've lost control 'Cause all you see and all you feel You'll never know what's for real
Party Kids 02:30
The kid smelled like Bacardi He fucked like a whore His whole life was a party He couldn't ask for anything more, and that's for sure He had a girlfriend, she was a bitch And they both slept around And one day he grew an itch And it all came down They got in a fight He called her a "psycho slut" As they screamed into the night She shot him in his beer gut She shot him 'til he was dead Then she dragged him to the lake It's where they first had sex She killed herself to ease the pain Yeah the party still went on Yeah the party still went on And all those party party kids They partied 'til the break of dawn Is that so wrong?
Snooze 02:35
Holy shit, what time is it? And how long have I been out of it? Yin and yang, big crunch then bang If there's a purpose I hope I find it But I'm absent-minded and I don't mind it Yes or no, or maybe so I hope I get to know before it's time to go Tick or tock, I hate the clock Another sleepless night to end a pointless day If things were alright then I'd feel okay But they always fight when I just want to play If they were alright then I'd be okay But it's like this every fucking day Oh no
