Track Name: The Ol Switcheroo
I was thinking, baby baby, about the ‘ol switcheroo
from a dramatic actor to a comedic troupe
Pick a card, ready run, pick an action quick
How do you reign when everything’s broke?
Oops! the hungry broke the dinner bell
The devil’s armies climbing up the wishing well
Mother, may i have a menu that’s more for me?
There’s no glory for a m.i.a. v.i.p.

Cause there comes a time in everyones life when their going to choose to live or die
It can’t be fun to walk on dead bodies when you know that half of them are alive

The ‘ol switcheroo! No one will expect it
A quick attack to send them running off into the night
Stab! in the back with a feather
Forsake humanity with a little touch of levity

Take a moment to reflect on making out with the sun
How it can breathe life into about anyone
Kiss off goodbye devil, goodbye academy
Hello towers built to honor everything to be

Cause there comes a time in everyone’s life when their going to choose to live or die
It can’t be fun to walk on dead bodies when you know that half of them are alive

The ‘ol switcheroo! No one will expect it
A quick attack to send them running off into the night
Stab! In the back with a feather
Forsake humanity with a little touch of levity
Aww yeah! I’m going to make it
Mother Teresa’s going to stand up and applaud for me

The ‘ol switcheroo, the ‘ol switcheroo
Track Name: Game Show
Born to pick and choose
Oops, I am mistaken all my choices have been chosen
Born to live and learn
Born to do and die if I did not do it right

Duty lies in doing the best you can
It’s not what you know, but who would you blow
and if you want it all you better spit out what you’re told

Ask me to pick a side
I will slice your babies right between the eyes
I made up my own game
The instant winner now follow all my fame

We don’t need help to make this more funny
Duty lies in doing the best you can

Mama threw me into a game show where all the answers are removed from their soul

It’s not what you know, but who would you blow
If you want it all you better spit out what you’re told

Canned laughter is a warm family
Can laughter set us free?
It’s reality to be loved and hated
It’s reality to be eliminated
You’re the star
Track Name: How We Enjoyed Ourselves
Go ahead and look up in the sky, now you’re floating
Do you want another piece of pie? How exciting!
What a day, I said. How we enjoyed ourselves.

Do you wanna run with me through the garden?
Oh you have a slip and slide? Well, I beg your pardon
Leaving nothing to chance, how we enjoyed ourselves

We walked hand in hand across the land, always listening
Fireworks played melodies, when we kissed heard symphonies
Always time to dance, how we enjoyed ourselves

Eating pie in summer time will go down in history
Kiss me if you miss me and the trumpets will sound revelry
What a day, I said, how we enjoyed ourselves

Keep the days coming, keep them coming my way
Track Name: Fully Operational
This old bag of bones should be left alone
Buried in the corner, away from a window
If it can’t breathe, maybe it will stay down

I hope my eyes don’t tell
so you won’t tell of a strange sad disposition
A dramatization of a child who doesn’t sleep at night
Well a boogie man finally won the fight

I don’t want to sleep tonight
Must be fully operational

Oh at best I will dream of a zombie team
With the same aspirations
To create conquer and delight
There’s so much pressure on us
So much for us to know
and I will be damned if I rest without peace tonight

I don’t want to sleep tonight
Must be fully operational
I have to get this so right
Must be instantly sensational
Track Name: Crash the Party
Statues will be broken with great authority
Understating the lack of care for antiquity
On a bus people came with brand new tongues and polished hand grenades

Even now I look for weapons to borrow
Timeless antics can’t wait for tomorrow
A bowie knife, paper and pens, to record actions from all there who agree

They know what’s wrong and just might make it right
A concentration of sun exploding out there eyes
Burning hope will be motto
and the name of first battle sight

I didn’t come here to crash the party
I came here to crash myself
I didn’t believe and now my hearts on my sleeve
Everything will be well

I never said that I had the best plan
I’ll follow you now I am just a hopeful man
I agree it’s time for a change, a new hope, and a new face to maim
Where is the line so I can polish my new hand grenade?
Track Name: Everybody Pull the Trigger
Perfidy is four letter word wrapped in love
and a tattered white flag soaring like a dove
C’mon, didn’t you know wars are fought to be won?
Now say hello to my rooftop friend
I
t’s so fun whispering bullets through the breeze
The propaganda of the deed will have everyone talking
And starting up a riot
It’s exactly what you want
History has proven that you have a great thirst for the hunting season
We as witches cackle, gossip and plan

We wouldn’t have been friends on any other day
Now I have a cause and a polished hand grenade
Requesting permission to speak freely
Maybe tomorrow you would have done this to me

It’s so fun whispering bullets through the breeze
The propaganda of the deed will have everyone talking
And starting up a riot
It’s exactly what you want
History has proven that you have a great thirst for the hunting season
We as witches cackle, gossip and plan

Oh! Here’s a copy of the art of war
Read up and give ‘em all what for
A fresh steaming smoking yellow dove

So kids, seclude, body guard, and bulletproof your dreams
They’ll lie and fight, attack you just as you think
Be sane, be calm, evolve, take ‘em to the streets
I’ve seen their armies and we’ve already won
Track Name: Tear Down the Wall
It’s obsession and repression that allows me to bring attention to my mind
It’s a cracked piece of glass
Beautiful and colorful to the touch wonderful, a firecracker in a car crash
If I lose control, I lose the team
If I lose my soul, I am a machine
Wake up it is morning, your age it is growing,
Oh no no no

It’s an age old practice I will use to our advantage
Mind control mixed with spit
When we get up to the wall we need your help to make it fall
Here’s a grab bag full of tricks
Wait, are you determined, strong, bold and wise?
Does your body hold power or just dirty lies?
There’s a war to be won so let’s have some fun, brick by brick by brick

Let’s tear the wall down to the ground
Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
I’m still attacking this wall if its not torn down
Do you want my help?
Do you want my heart (oh yeah!)
My brothers and my sisters
Let’s tear the wall down to the ground

If I was more articulate I would spit in your face
A bonafide reject psycho punch to put you in your place
Demons, they’re getting bolder
Bringing down my back and breaking my shoulders, no!
Wake up it is morning, your age it is growing
There’s a war to be won so let’s have some fun
Down by the wall, let’s watch it fall
Brick by brick by brick

Let’s tear the wall down to the ground
Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
I’m still attacking this wall if its not torn down
Do you want my help?
Do you want my heart (oh yeah!)
My brothers and my sisters
Let’s tear the wall down to the ground
Track Name: 1,000 Miles Per Hour
1,000 miles per hour seems innocent indeed
But what is speed, when you don’t know where you’re going?
A knife to the throat seems dangerous indeed
But what’s to bleed, when you don’t know what’s flowing?

Moving away from this land, this abulia
I’m going to the best place for me

A car full of gas and a map you cannot see
It was costly my mind spent all my money
I’d blame for you for my troubles but i know its all on me
Responsibility is bloody and dragging behind me

Moving away from this land, this abulia
I’m going to the best place for me
If you feel the same, follow me

Things are what they seem
This ain’t the life for me and you know it
We’re going to do the same things we did yesterday
trying to pass the time waiting for tomorrow
Please tell me at night you dream of the wildest things

Cause I bite at windows
Teeth versus glass
Pray for salvation from my lazy ass
I toss and turn, sleepwalk and start fires
Create new words to help scream out desires
So please, if you feel the same, follow me

Moving away from this land, this abulia
I’m going to the best place for me
Sometimes life has a way of making you feel crazy
Baby it’s not the road laid out for me
