Amidst the burning rubble the spirit still lives on
To rise above all poverty, to rise above all wrong
No one needs your bloodied sword, I'll get what's truly mine
Bullets of hate kept in your hands, they'll burn a hole in time
Rebel against all hate and tell the story straight
We are no more noble than our words
Be true to your beliefs, don't do wrong and then retreat
'cause action leads to t...
A little island way far away
That's loved and admired in the U.S.A.
England's scene is cool for them
But here it just creates a bunch of problems
People here wear circle A's
Right beside it the flag of the U.K.
Circle A no government that's quite clear
So what's the Union Jack still doing there?
A-U.K. means anti-U.K.
United Kingdom go away
Remember you live in the U.S.A.
England's stale anywa...
It's late at night
The house is dark
The t.v. glow won't let me sleep
A noise is heard
I'm filled with fright
The doors are locked
I'm sure I'm sure
A feeling hits me
What's going on
Did that shadow move or was it me
Is this real
Am I asleep
What was that
I check the phone, no it's not dead
That would suck there's no one to call
Those horror movies play with my mind
It might be a burglar, or e...
There it is stuck on the wall
Your reflection comes back to make you fall
What lies beyond is in you head
Look into the mirror, why are your eyes red
Beyond the mirror, why do you always stare
Beyond the mirror is future or past
Look inside it, be put to the test
It knows what happened
What will to be
The mirror will never set you free
Someone's inside it
It's looking at you
It knows what happ...
Parents, police, teachers, do we need them?
Action, myself, attitude, I claim in mayhem
I know you don't like me but I could care less
You try to win, you lose, now who's the best?
I fell nothing now
A coma has set in this town
My grave I've started to dig
ChiPs have black balled us and big
The masses they can't relate
Blind as a bat
Blind as a bat but they think they know this an...
Life is dull for most of you
They ram it down your throat and make you chew
Answers to the questions that bring up fear
You could care less you're out of beer
Nothing to do, you're going crazy
You could go to work but you're too damn lazy
Sitting on your couch watching the show
It gets pretty boring, it's getting slow
You see it coming, remember its traits
You're dead set against killing
You'll never go to war
Peace in our time is thrilling
But your reality door is closed
If you should decide to resist the draft
That's you God given choice
Why go thousands of miles away to kill someone with no voice
But think about this as it's said
If their soldiers came here, you'd be dead
Bullets are faster than words
Home defense to keep our peace seems logi...
Mentality is down, everyone's astray
California dreamin' Mtv all day
I went to the store just to get a Coke
And all they had was Pepsi, what a f***in' joke
Looking outside the window you can see the bay
Then you'll know that this is the place to stay.
Same thing, dry day, planned out, all day
A virus that spreads, it won't go away
Get up, get out, go there, come back
Spontaneous action? Heck, what's that?
Go slow health nuts buckle up you should talk
Why do these people sit and gawk?
Don't smoke robots use those cross walks
Forget that man you only live once
Who are they to make these rules up
Democracy where was the vote at?
The hippies go...
Dressin' like a real nice guy
I trick your sight and fool your mind
You don't know what I really am
You don't know that I've got a plan
I act so cool you can't resist
My horrible habits they still persist
I think I might bite your neck
Later tonight, so you won't detect
I'm a corpse in disguise
Here to haunt your lives
I spread the germ where ever I go
When you rot, You'll finally know
In may ...
Sleep does not exist at all, my efforts are in vain
I strike a match to light a smoke, a whisper speaks my name
Moonlight penetrates the shade, there's an image up on the wall
What has entered by blackened world, a whisper makes its call
When you finally wake up, your memory won't recall
What's about to happen in this dark room, you will arise and that is all
Thinking that it was just a though...
No use to try at all, I can't stop what is going on
We grow old it is strong
We die like flies as its death goes on it's deathless
Take a look and you're breathless
One more step, one more year
Take another look and you're gone forever, you're deathless
Take a look and you're lifeless
One last step, one last year, one last look and you're gone.
The demons came from over the hills
To murder pillage rape and kill
their burly frames would instill fear to all of those who dare came near
Your stomach turns at the bloody sight
It's not a dream it's real life. The demons are coming, they're flying on bats wings
the demons are coming they're making you say things
You're just a pawn in their game
The president knows the demons by name
I want ...
6-6-6 upon your head, promised fun when you're dead
You think that this world is bad, so you get caught up in the eternal fad
the way you dress is not enough so you go one step beyond
Gotta be cool, Gotta be tough
You worship all that's wrong
It's an eternal plan, a deadly sham
It's emerged out of hell
A secret order so far from the boarder, yet you persist to dwell
Most big churches today are...
Have no money but I have a plan
Not so funny I gotta scam
Home cooked meals are not for me
I gotta eat out tonight, can't you see
Jack in the Box, Dairy Queen, Pizza Hut, Burger King, Taco Bell, 7-11, Foster Freeze, Baskin Robbins
I'm on a fast food diet, I need that greasy diet
On a fast food diet, maybe you should try it
Mom works late so she won't cook
She wants me to read the recipe book
You did your best but it got in your way
Fear of rejection, you'd watch what you'd say
Standards were set for you, was it bad or good?
You did what they did because you thought you should
But friends and enemies laugh at you
You without a face
No distinction between the two
Win or lose the race
Everyone is doing it, you too, but why?
Fellowship is gained for you, or is it just a lie
I don't remember anyone dying leaving you to run my life
what's this trip running through your head, you're not a mom a pop or even a wife
go ahead and impress the clowns, you're in a circle of babbling sheep
I see you talking to a friend of yours, was it by chance you were looking at me
You should go away
And take your judgment with you because you decide for you, and I decide for me
Go back ...
Don't try to push your ideas on me, I can think for myself
Don't care about what you do to me, don't care about society
Who do you think could push the button, not D.C. and not the reds
It's in my mind, it's in my head, it's in my brain, it's in my bed, It's on the streets, it's in the news, it makes me sick, it looks like you
Everywhere I look and everything I see reminds me of the things ...
Headin' out we're gonna meet the crew
But first we stop, the boys want brew
they want brew
They're under age, we wait and tap
An hour goes by I start to laugh
I laugh out loud
Let's go get Cokes
Anything else will make me choke
7-11 gulps are the best
I won't settle for anything less, I won't stand for anything less
So let's go get cokes Anything else will make me choke
I won't settle for...
We've gone too far, what are we to do now?
We pass the distant stars and I ask how, how, how
Lost in space, we'll never get back
Subject to an alien attack
Lost in space the sky's all black
Their scopes and probes can't get us back
Way off course without a clue, all instruments stop working
Weightlessness means no way up
No food no fuel we're outta luck.
I don't need a job and I don't need no friends
People bore me to the end I wish that I were dead
All this stench that fills the air reminds me of the dump
And when I turn on my tv, the f***in' Brady Bunch
The cluelessness of middle class is what I'm living for
In San Jose there's too many d***s, it's a bore, a bore
My parents are getting stressed, just give my ears a rest
I wake in tim...
So you've done wrong, a stab in the back
You were out of control, that was what you lacked
So you've calmed down, and then you start to cry
Sympathy from me, you won't get mine
It was way uncalled for and now you realize
Nope, too late, it's done
There's no compromise.
I can't help being the way that I am
It's not paranoia, it's Uncle Sam
The minute I was born they've had my prints
They use intimidation as their biggest hint
The boys at the capitol they know who you are
Everything about you is on a little white card
S.S. numbers, now you're pegged for life
A life under their watchful little eyes
I went to school, I didn't know why
Then I found out only later...
A place for you if you do what's wrong
Goes beyond you wildest dream
The know of you horrid fear, you know they're what they seem
Disagree with what they say and do, you'll have to pay the price
In the night they'll come and get you
you can't put up a fight
Room 101, the place of your fear
What will you do to get out of there
Confess to something that you've done, you've had too much fun
Total chaos everywhere
One step beyond the old Red Scare
People panic, they're afraid, at home is the place they should have stayed
Different factions, no real reasons, people dying, running amok
Something went wrong with their ways, everyone's waiting for the day
Their type of thinking has fallen down, and not a building is standing in town
A faux pas that can't be denied, do all these people...
Dad said I was one of the few who acted bad before I was two
A hyperactive little boy
One day of life on all my toys
I pulled the hair of little girls
slid on cardboard down steep hills
Ghost-ride my bike into walls
Broke windows while playing baseball
Get dragged to shop with the folks
Nag and pout, make 'em look like jokes
Snake some money and go to the store
Kicked a hole in my bedroom door...
Forget the light, skate and destroy
Pass the jogger, skate and destroy
Snap it back, skate and destroy
Kick that bike, skate and destroy
It's not a cause or political belief, it's something in my thinking
If you agree it's cool by me, at least I'm not a robot
I'm not afraid of things I read, I won't divide my friends up
Dictatorship of people's minds is not what I will strive for
The cops are ...
There's disobedience in the streets
In all of suburbia's dreams
Kids are tired of the same old things
Drive in movies and football games
Time to have some real fun, time to put boredom under the gun
Kids on four whells they don't care
They just wonder why the laws arent' fair
Why is it they won't admit, at least we don't stay home and sit
skate harassment complicity, b****y neighbors and polic...
You're all alone and by yourself
Pretty much nothing to do
The others are so many it's f***in' scary
The things that they could to you
They feed on mtv, shaping paths of thought
About the third world war and things they should have bought
Smart ass people they're all the same
You're slightly different so today is the day
Perfect mamma's boys in their perfect daddy's cars
Time to go it's late, as the fog begins to lay
And you wish that you were at home in bed
Visions of evil and visions ill will
Are burning corners into your head
The echo of your steps
From the fence across the field
They're coming from close behind
The air drops to ten degrees, cob webs in the trees
Your door step seem so very far away
When dripping shadows start to move, when your doubts begi...
It's a test, I adapt or die
When most of it is an all out lie
A story's been undisclosed against a will that was never told
Undisclosed who's bad or good
They've the force they'll make it good
They disclose, repeat the rest
They're the ones that I detest
The brain dominates, dictates, controls you, says we all lose
The thing is set into a mold
Lies details and when I'm told
Don't ask me who...
Let's teach them well let's teach them wise
Make sure we teach them not to lie
Tell them all that they need to know
Tell them now, and let's not be slow
Teach them truth and advertising
Because they're seldom hand in hand
Right now they're selling presidents
Let's make them understand that the kids
they are the future
Tell them picture tubes are our tools
don't be taught logic don't be taught ...
With a tongue like a battering ram
the wench is on everyone's scams
Telling stories, telling lies
Causing close friends to divide
A kind word for every face, then puts your words in another place
Twists the tale so she prevails
She's got ways that never fail
Because she's got a tongue like a battering ram
Someone ought to put her in her place
Barging into everyone's space
She's got a tongue li...
Funds collected in a humane cause, to rescue a mammal with enormous jaws
One ate Pinocchio but you don't care
Solicit money using solemn stares
Acting educated, put on your act
You make people think you've got the facts
You study films, keep up on the news
How could anyone be as noble as you
Why save the whales, let's save us
Give me the money, I'll open a trust
You think the whales would save...
Yesterday is gone, let it go I say
And none of its cares will I borrow
Isn't it great to be living today and looking ahead to tomorrow
All these wash outs dwell in the past, wishing that they could go back in time
I don't have their time, I guess I'm too fast
don't need their heroes, don't need their kind
Yesterday came, yesterday past, yesterday was here, and you're still there.
Alone at last to collect all of my thoughts
Is it worth my time, is it worth it or not?
'cause you sketch my mind to the point of hate
I can't understand your new clean slate
You are here and I wish you would leave
You're so advanced, far more than I
No need to bother in asking you why
You're in between the black and white line
You wanna stand out and your doing just fine
It's such a shame 'ca...
