Track Name: Art of War
I need a jetpack
It’s just a setback
You’re gonna let that
I’m gonna get that
How do you feel about the world that you live in
When you don’t even try it’s a given that you give in
I need a jetpack
It’s just a setback
It’s just a setback (It’s just a setback)

Are you ready for war
What are you waiting for
Are you ready for war
Why are you waiting
Are you ready for war
What are you waiting for
Are you ready for war
Why are you waiting

Runaway runaway once they took my sun away
I pulled out this ray gun and then I just let it spray
On all these people walking and talking
Everybody acting like the lyrics in this song
That’s what shocking
Brand new brand you anyway they can too
I’m not fit for judging it well I’m just trying to review
And preview through a different set of eyes
Not set up on the lies that lie just beneath all our tries

Our tries and trials our tried and true
Our what the hell were we supposed to do
When the men are from Venus and the women of Mars Hill
Smarten up to freedom but they’ve got their scars still
Smart enough to see dumb, see how their scars heal
Give them half a crown watch how their stars kill
Because they’ve got that star skill
Are you ready for war
What are you waiting for
Are you ready for war
Why are you waiting
Are you ready for war
What are you waiting for
Are you ready for war
Why are you waiting

Runaway runaway once they took my sun away
Runaway runaway
Track Name: Runaway
CHORUS:
Runaway with my hands behind my head
Runaway with my hands behind my head

[Kenny]
They told me to run I ran
They told me they stood, I stand
For other things than what was planned
In the span of time it takes to master strife
Yea I ain’t talking after life
From the beginning we were sinning and winning but now we’re spinning
On how we went and blew all the chances we’ve been given
Sitting back pretending like it’s mind control
Try to protect your neck, yeah they steal your soul
Like you’re trying to go for home but you couldn’t quite get
For Pete Rose sake somebody place this bet
And maybe see the game set match to fail
All hail to the chief Say it All hail

CHORUS

[Dylan]
Running running! Run here as fast as I can
Im trying to escape the demons up inside of my head
I try so hard to keep from ending up dead
This life we live, we’re told to lead they said
I take a moment to look at myself
Fled from disaster
Instead I took a turn for the better
After hitting the bottom
Reached for the surface man (I got him)
The weight of the world on my shoulders and I spot ‘em
Waiting watching in the wings taking notes on my style profile
Only for the meanwhile
Gotta switch it up never staying in the same file
Like the first amendment signed sealed delivered
I throw my hands up in the air and scream I’m free
Yeah if you want to live the life that’s meant to be You’ve got to think for yourself and keep on running (Running running)

CHORUS

They told me to run I ran
They told me they stood I stand

When they tell you to run you run
They tell you to stand don’t stand
Just keep on running

Yeah they told me to run I ran
They told me they stood I stand

When they tell you to run you run
They tell you to stand don’t stand
Just keep on running

CHORUS
Track Name: Lost and Lonely
CHORUS:
Lost and lonely boy where are you running to
You’re scared of all the toys that your parents bought for you
You’re making a whole awful lot of noise these days
It’s not like anybody’s listening anyways

Distorting all heard can’t trust a sound
Holding me back holding me down
Fighting this time slipping in sand
Hope it all bounces back like a rubber band
Illusions of freedom they make the best slave
Got you focused on the riches keep your mind in a cave
Steadily wrestling with the shadow of doubt try to fly with the eagles like a robin I shout
No time to fight with doubt I’ve got to rock steady
So many questions like am I really ready
But I stare at this crowd yeah I see that it’s on
So I hop to this mic and I step in my zone
Couple more shows I’m gonna be done
I’m ain’t saying I’m gonna do it my own
I just know that you’ll miss me kiss me
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
Come on and sing it

CHORUS

Tried illuminating sounds flipped upside down
You’ve gotten amateurs listening to things profound
Through a desert of mind designed and engineered
To steer life clear of the ships we fear
The air we breathe the things we need
And do with speed of light at the end of tunnel
Where I met my end but we all get funneled to this time and space
So I ask my friends
To take my place in this race where it’s obvious it’s
opposite of conscience we’ve lost our taste
But I wonder if in a haste to erase our mistakes
We’ve made a blunder gave up all the good we’ve had for the chase
We’ve made a blunder gave up all the good we’ve had for the chase

They’re singing

It’s all about the money money money
Hair nails cars and the clothes
Anything that shines shimmers and glows you know
It’s all about the money money money
Hair nails cars and the clothes
Anything that shines shimmers and glows you know
(Oh I know)

Oh yeah I said go ahead and cry
Ain’t nobody listening to your ass
Oh yeah I said go ahead and cry
Ain’t nobody listening to your ass
Oh yeah I said go ahead and cry
Ain’t nobody listening to your ass
Oh yeah I said go ahead baby don’t cry no more.
Track Name: Space Travelin'
CHORUS: [Dylan]
Ride on the tail of a shooting star
Far away from everything we’’ve come to hate so hard
Up, up away ‘cause you said that you wanted things to change and fill up that empty space
Your eyes are opened wide but why the long face
Won’t you let me fly us to that dream inside your head
Keep up with me burning red can’t you see
Transmitting in the distance
Brighter skies ahead
This is all for you
Eyes wide open all for you
This is all for you
Eyes wide open all for you

There’s chemicals in the water
Poisoning the children
In our rivers and our oceans
Our global broadcast stations
Ain’t no safe place to live no more
Ain’t no time to love it seems
You be careful what you believin’
See in ain’t the end all feelin
Im closer to the edge
Yes I’m closer to the edge
Oh, I’m closer to the edge
Yes I’m closer to the edge
Hey there brother please say something for me

[Kenny]
Chemic independence systemic transcendence
So many Impositions and still we take no stance
No chance for change or anything else on this plane of existence for which we stand
One nation under Mars now ain’t life grand
We forget about Venus she’s on demand
We rise to violence and then we fall
we go relieved and we blame it all on the sickness
Believe it with a quickness
Take all your lies up and put you on a ledge
Saying please brother please brother please
I’m so damned close to the edge

CHORUS

[Dylan]
Well I’m ok
Ok now
Yeah I’m okay now
We’ve been travelin’ on
Through outer space
No sense in changin’ pace

[Kenny]
You can’t get by in this world with a soft heart
They say they say
Well okay
Said five, four, three, two, one
Yeah
Let it ride out
