Track Name: Better Off Dead
I am the devil you should see what’s in my head
I’ll make Burt Reynolds cry, I had Ghandi seein’ red
And when you think it’s time to sell your soul to me
I’ll turn your body inside out you’ll walk among the living dead

Chorus:
I’m goin’ to hell, why don’t you meet me?
Pack light cause it’ll be hot this evening
You’re better off dead, you better believe it
I didn’t start this fire and I’m not gonna put it out

It’s time to invite you in to the party of the damned
You’ll meet the black-eyed woman, the eternal one night stand
We own your immortality with only one way to get it back
You have to kill and kill again, you are a heart attack

I’ll get you one way or another
Cause I’ve got all the time in the world
I can tempt you with anything I please
And promise you any fucking thing that you think you need
If there’s one thing that I’ve learned
In this eternity in my fiery hole
Is the sure-fire way to steal a soul is with
Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Hell Yeah!
Track Name: Godzilla Vs. America
Peacetime in Tokyo now there’s a place he has to go
Well he’s big, and he’s mean… He is
Headed for our mainland. Crafted a master plan
of revenge, to avenge… He’s got
1945 on his mind. Spittin’ fire all the time
Burn em down to the ground… He wants
Devastation from town to town. Panic screams the only…
Sound the alarm! Raise your arms!

Chorus:
(Godzilla) Godzilla!
(Godzilla) Godzilla!
(Godzilla) Godzilla Versus America!
It doesn’t happen every day. He just fucked with the U.S.A.

Sleeping Giant’s been awakened, but this land’s never forsaken
We fight! All our might! We are…
United for the cause. Come together for the job.
We’re one. Raise your guns! We have…
Old Glory flying high. Stars and Stripes til’ we die!
Freedom! Freedom!
Father’s, sons and brothers! Friends, families and neighbors
Sound the alarms! Raise your arms!
Track Name: We Want Blood
I have laid awake, I’ve thought and thought
Nightmares and dreams of killing you
I plan and plot, I’m not alone,
Behind my back, they want blood too!
WE WANT BLOOD!
Can’t sleep at night, can’t turn it off!
We want revenge, yeah we want blood!

When you turn around, we stare you down
We want your body six feet down
And so it goes, the final page
We close the book… our book of rage!
WE WANT BLOOD!
Can’t sleep at night, can’t turn it off!
We want revenge, yeah we want blood!

Chorus:
WE WANT
Bodies across the floor
Your heads on our walls
Can’t sleep ’cause we want blood!

I still lay awake, I think and think
Nightmares and dreams of killing you
I plan and plot, I’m not alone.
Behind my back, they want blood too!
WE WANT BLOOD!
Can’t sleep at night, can’t turn it off!
We want revenge, yeah we want blood!
Track Name: Let It Burn
Get in the van, man and put it in high gear, cause this is where it all begins
Fly down the highway, we’re doin’ it our way. Live to win and live to sin.
Ridin’ the guard-rail, we’ll get there we can’t fail. I just hope the beer is cold
Spray the beer your way, spray the beer our way. Get paid and laid and then we roll!

Chorus:
Nothin’ to see let it burn. Out of our view when we turn.
Burn to the ground let it burn. Burn baby burn baby burn!

Burn Burn Burn!

Sometimes there are shit towns you wanna just burn down. Light the match and drive away.
We started the fire, we’re gonna get higher! Let it burn! Let it burn!
Track Name: This Is War
Just one!
One more night!
Then I’m done…
But I know I’ve just begun!

Shoulda seen the red flags flying’ since the very first day we met…
When you told me the sound of broken glass always gets you wet…
Now I know that good things go faster than they ever come…
Its so hard to think now that I know I’m the only one!

Chorus:
Break down the door! Everybody hit the floor!
And as your life flashes before your eyes you know that this is war!
Break down the door! Everybody hit the floor!
And as your life flashes before your eyes you know that this is war!

So now I’m stuck in this world livin’ day by day…
Every time I try to get out there’s always something in my way.
This fire burns in me like a million scorching suns
Every time I think I’m done well I know I just begun!

Bridge:
Break ‘em down. Smash ‘em down. It’s time to settle the score.
Knock ‘em down & drag ‘em out with bloodstains on the floor
Break ‘em down. Smash ‘em down. Never give up the fight.
Save the world, get the girl and rock her all night!

Shoulda seen the red flags flying’ since the very first day we met…
When you told me the sound of broken glass always gets you wet…
Now I know that good things go faster than they ever come…
But it’s so hard to think now that I know I’m the only one!
Track Name: Old School Warrior
Wakin’ up and feeling pissed again. Frustrated and agitated.
Thinkin’ back to all the times when all you did was skated and skated
But you think you’re grown’ old, bad back, tough job, and weary knees.
Man up, put on your Vans. Smack your girl on the ass and hit the streets!

Chorus:
Old School Warrior! Get out there and fight!
Ride with all your might! Ride with all your might!
Old School Warrior! Get out there and fight!
Ride with all your might! Ride with all your might!

So now you’re flying free, catching a groove and flying downhill
360 pop shove-it, bend that board to your will
Be a man and grind that shit down. Sparks flying’ everywhere.
Pushing hard up to that jump ramp, method air and never come down!

My knees are killin’ me!

Old school warrior! Ride free ride fast… while you can.
You got your board, your girl, and your friends!
Old school warrior! Ride free ride fast… while you can.
You got your board, your girl, and this band!
Track Name: Caffeine, Nicotine and Beer
Wake up in the morning just an hour too late, never have any time to waste
Could be a different town, or a different state
Something keeps pushing me to move on. Can’t go back til the job is done
At times it feels like I’m chasing down the sun

Chorus:
Gotta make a move before I make mistakes
Gotta hit the road before I hit the brakes
Caffeine, nicotine and beer. Caffeine, nicotine and beer.
Caffeine, nicotine and beer is all I need!

Feels like someone’s right on my tail. Any second now I know I could fail
My coffin’s missing that final nail
Find a safe place to lay my head, and I thought about the very last thing you said
No matter what I do I’ll end up dead
Track Name: Smell Your Fear
Somethin’ wicked this way comes
You better lock your doors, you better run
If you get caught in our sights
It’s lights out for you tonight!

Everywhere you look your exits are blocked
You’ve got nowhere to hide you know you’re caught
We’re gonna over run this place so
embrace your fate and open a case

Chorus:
Here we come. Say your prayers!
Here we come. We smell your fear!
Here we come. Break out the beers!

Now that you’re one of us
You see the world in a different light
There’s no cure and no containment
It’s a rock n’ roll outbreak tonight!

HERE WE COME!
Track Name: Who's Got The Cocaine?
Break out those razor blades
We’re gonna have some fun
Don’t preach to me I don’t give a fuck
Hey, it smells like twenty bucks

I’ve walked that line before
Picked my ass up off the floor
Maybe I can get you some
Hey, it smells so good, it smells like fun

Shit don’t make me feel so bad
well it’s the best damn stuff I ever had

Just don’t tell me that you love me
Or that you’re always thinking’ of me
Cause I know you just want the drugs
You just want the drugs

Chorus:
Who’s got the cocaine?
I’ve got the cocaine!
Who’s got the cocaine?
I’ve got the cocaine!
Track Name: Back To The Future
Can’t help the fact my family’s a mess
Or that uncle Joey’s parole wasn’t met
And to top it all off I cant go to the lake
Because the car is a wreck

You call me a slacker
and you say my band’s too loud
This all might sound strange
But history’s about to change

Chorus:
Back to the future
In case you had a doubt
Back to the future
That’s what this song’s about

So I’m hitchin’ rides on the bumpers of cars
On my way to the Twin Pines mall

You called me a slacker
And you said my band’s too loud
This night’s about to change my fate
When I get this baby to 88.

Back to the future
In case you had a doubt
Back to the future
That’s what this song’s about

Mayor Goldie Wilson
I like the sound of that
Mayor Goldie Wilson
I like the sound of that

Spent a week in 1955
Told my mom my name was Calvin Klein
Told dad Darth Vader will melt his brain
If he don’t ask out Lorraine.

Existence in danger
Almost disappeared during Earth Angel
Still made it to the clock tower
Four minutes past the hour

Back to the future
Lets see what 2015 holds
Back to the future
Where we’re going we don’t need roads
Back to the future
In case you had a doubt
Back to the future
That’s what this song’s about
