Track Name: Fade
one day i'll be ancient and sick and tired of doing the same shit
they tell me patience comes with age, it's getting shorter every fucking day
when i finally run out of rage you can roll me into my shallow grave
yeah when i reach that level of decay i'll know if old punx die
or just fade away

we're not growing older, we're just getting uglier
still got the same spirit but we're missing every other word
cuz life's a joke that just gets funnier and funnier
let's go out laughing, giving it the finger
or just fade away

and when my time's cut short, unplug my life support
cuz that'll be the day I'll find out if old punx die
or just fade away
Track Name: Suffer
it was hard to believe it at first
til your sister held your ashes in the church
four hundred staring silent before the priest
til the mourning ceremony was complete

if it was easy to recover
i'd be in a different place and you would too
don't know how long you suffered
when you fell into the gutter
never thought to ask

yeah

there's my beat up boots in the corner of your room
two years past i counted the cracks in the ceiling while you were sleeping
there's you a few months later outside the bodega
broken hand broken expression, a bag of unanswered questions

if it was easy to recover
i'd be in a different place and you would too
don't know how long you suffered
when you fell into the gutter
never thought to ask

if it was easy, so fucking easy, if it was easy to recover

if it was easy to recover
i'd be in a different place and you would too
don't know how long you suffered
when you fell into the gutter
never thought to ask...
Track Name: Die Someday
we were young and full of wonder with so much to say
looking up to each other to show us the way
we wanted the danger yeah we wanted a taste
we were nobody's angels, we were made to replace

i said hey, yeah, don't wanna die son, but we all die someday

we started out test tubes and we started out clean
some needed directions and became machines
some turn to small crimes and end up paying the price
others blinded us all from burning too bright

i said hey, yeah, don't wanna die son, but we all die someday

so we go thru the motions and cover the scars
we look back and wonder how we made it so far
i sit and consider with my beat up guitar
how many mistakes until you know who you are?

and i said hey, yeah, don't wanna die son, but we all die someday

whoa

hey, yeah, don't wanna die son, but we all die someday...
Track Name: Economy
my economy runs on whiskey
my economy runs on whiskey
my economy runs on whiskey, yours waddles on mcdonalds
another victory for industry, they kill jobs so i kill bottles

you're compromised and dead to rights
they're selling you that merchandise
they're telling you that it's alright cuz:
tomorrow night you'll be downsized
tomorrow night you'll be downsized
tomorrow night you'll be downsized

now no more real options remain
you're stuck in the line at a fast food chain
you take a spliff into the bathroom stall and you clean my vomit off the wall
you look into my bloodshot eyes, i sit back and apologize
you say alright, you share a hit, cuz both our lives have turned to shit

sympathy for a drunken punk is a rarity when you're fucking stuck
it's a bear trap, consumerism, you're well aware that no one really listens
got a shit job and you're sinking into debt
you scramble for a handhold that you're never gonna get
so tip back the bottle and count to three
take a healthy swallow of ol' tommy

my economy runs on whiskey...
Track Name: Wasted
the teacher taught us to be complacent
the banker robs us while we sleep
the officer locks punk rock in the basement
the judge keeps us from going free

you wasted all our time, you wasted our whole lives, i'll never let it go

the exec stole our living wages
the landlord kicked us into the streets
it's so hard to roll with the changes
when you're stuck in this life of poverty

you wasted all our time, you wasted our whole lives, i'll never let it go...
Track Name: Johnny Cashed Out
johnny cashed out, then johnny cashed in
he had a briefcase full of pills the cops thought was heroin
well they caught up to him down in old el paso
but he had a prescription, so the man had to let him go

saying
johnny cashed in, then johnny cashed out

johnny cashed out a second time
took his truck off the highway man, guess he should've walked the line
the man in black started a ring of fire, five hundred acres burned to ash
the judge turned out to be a boy named sue and settled for johnny's cash

saying
johnny cashed in , then johnny cashed out

johnny cashed in , then johnny cashed out...
Track Name: Wisco Hooker
wisco hooker at the back of the bar
you know who you are
trying to follow me out to my car
you know who you are
grinding on me like you're ready to go
you know who you are
just a ratchet with a noseful of blow
you know who you are

friday night staring into a pint, surviving with an ice cold beer
i heard a horrible screeching laugh, an icepick straight to the ear
i held my breath, i turned my head, afraid of what i would see
her nasty face gave me a crazy look, she headed straight for me

wisco hooker at the back of the bar
you know who you are
trying to follow me out to my car
you know who you are
grinding on me like you're ready to go
you know who you are
just a ratchet with a noseful of blow
you know who you are

she wandered over to my spot and asked me for another shot
i said "probably not, you smell like a rancid twat"
she was the perfect shade of failure, desperate for a favor
never seen a woman so haggard, had to say "see you later"

wisco hooker at the back of the bar
you know who you are
trying to follow me out to my car
you know who you are
grinding on me like you're ready to go
you know who you are
just a ratchet with a noseful of blow
you know who you are
Track Name: Motions
we grow up wanting more, still empty inside
voices that we can't ignore come at us from every side

we go thru the motions, follow the program

yeah we keep trying hard to consume and discard
doesn't matter where you are, you ain't moving - you ain't getting very far

go thru the motions, follow the program

what's missing when you have and you hunger still?
we don't even listen, just swallow that poison pill

trust without question, follow directions
we're living without a care, temporarily embarrassed millionaires

go thru the motions, follow the program...
