Better Than Thousand

Self Worth

So many hedlines, so maniy lies Whay in the world does it take to survive? So many headaches, negative views I'll tell you what the people could use…

SEL WORTH - brace yourself ! SEL WORTH - you hate yourself ! SEL WORTH - and the hand that you were dealt ! SEL WORTH - because I'm value driven !

So much stress, so much to do Problems to solve but they don't have a clue so much depression, directionless too What can we find that will see us through ?

SEL WORTH - brace yourself ! SEL WORTH - you hate yourself ! SEL WORTH - and the hand that you were dealt ! SEL WORTH - because I'm value driven ! Go !

Yeah, what in this world does it take to survive ? So many headches, so many lies !

You were there

Had no fears, stumbled around, full of myself Afraid of tomorow, never looked ahead, no-one else You gave me a push, I know you believed, I know you cared And friendship & courage, never looked back and freely shared

And I always lead to the extreme Forget what it all means

There was a man who thougt that this world spun around him Couldn't see at all outside that world until you came in Showed me a little logic, a middle path - it made sense to me Now I'm finally beginning to appreciate all that you've done for me

And I always lead to the extreme Forget what it all means

I have faith in you And you believed in me too I have faith in you We've always tried to be true.

Poison in your brain

Suck it your senses, drink it down your throat Hooked on their addiction, is there any hope ? In a sex wrapper, in a gilded cage We've been captured animals, but we should be enraged

Poison in your brain !

Earth and air and water will never be the same Sold for the sake of progress for so little gain A pill for pleasure, a pill for pain Take a pill for sel-esteem, they're fucking with your brain !

Poison in your brain !

Live Today

We've made our efforts for happiness - well that endeavor caused more distress How could you expect success unless…you lived today

Tomorrow's dream may never come and sure it's good to have some. But instead of all this dreaming well why not just live today.

Hope for that day that I can find the perfect situation where all is fine. Just chasing my tail this hope of mine…I'm going to live today.

Trust no future however so pleasant. Let the dead past bury it's dead. Act, act in the living present. Live today.

I know I've been waiting for a time that is present every moment. I know his hankering has cheated out of a life but I'm gonna live.

It Never Rains

You couldn't stand it You always demanded some attention. I'll be damned if I understand why you always have to have your name mentioned. You thought that's what you wanted - you thought you knew. But you never really had a clue.

It never rains. But watch out when it pours. Play the fame game isn't it strange fuck with your brain. Who's now your friend and who's now your fan? They're not the same. They don't want to know you, they just want to hold you, and then let you go. But you just hated being in the shadows - so here you go.

It never rains. But watch out when it pours.

They'll love you without reason and they'll hate you too. For just being the person you are and doing what you do. But you really know it's the same foolish you.

Just One

I know it's the substance that really counts, but we're into number we judge by amount. I know it the good, not just the plenty and with all our abundance we end up empty.

We deserve cake but we've settled for crumbs, but I know one is better than a 1000…

Taught how to purchase we consume by the pound but open us up there's not much to be found. It could simply imbibe a one sentence of truth it's outweigh all the shit we drank up in our youth.

Motivation

Romantic embrace a kiss on the face. He loves her like lions love lamb. He's got an agenda so he'll befriend her. But friendship he can't understand.

She needs to be seen Queen of the scene. She wants to conquer her man. She says she adores him. She'll take whatever she can.

He's a popular guy so we'll always try to imitate his style. We hope he'll accept us, but if he rejects us we were fools all the while.

We Spoke Our Minds

I knew to keep quiet was the crime of the time. And if I did try it - It would be the death of my mind. They said to be loved you must tow the party line. But I can't pretend so I left it behind.

So we spoke our mind. And I'll never find that I'm a lesser man for speaking my mind.

Popularity traded but at least I would speak and my critics still wait for me to trip on the street. When this world rains disaster why take a back seat. We must move forward, let the meek remain weak.

So we spoke our mind. And I'll never find that I'm a lesser man for speaking my mind.

Nightclub

I know the guy at the door we won't have to pay. Party all night, sleep in the next day. Last nights girls' home by the phone. Go in by yourself but don't go home alone.

And we just stand and act and talk about nothing. What else is there to do. Another day on stage.

Why not live to investigate but we just sit and hallucinate. This song is meant to instigate.

Who's wearing what? Who's kissing butt? Everybody's walking but not saying much. (We're) looking for a real friend, looking for love, but coming up empty in the night club.

You Were The One

I've known you a long time. What you meant to me I thought you knew, I thought you could see. Lived life - for hours we were never apart what made it sour - you broke my heart.

You were the one - That made me unafraid. You were the one - who would have thought our friendship would fade away. You were the one - that made me feel so alive. You were the one - I want you to know how much you made me cry.

Do you even notice that there's nothing there? I could never bring it up. How could I dare? You played dumb, I don't think you really care. Always wanted to spill my heart, but I was too scared.

You were the one - that made me unafraid. You were the one - would have thought our friendship would fade away. You were the one - that made me feel so alive. You were the one - I want you to know how much you made me cry.

Alternative Nation

Our alternative nation where all the individuals are just being the same. Massive imitation, just a 90's version of the same rock and roll game. Yes, the same corporate rock but now we're sporting punk rock gear. Who's shocked by tribal tattoos and your pierced ears?

Search for identity - you put in your time to grow to your dread locks. Change the inside or you'll be just a freak, but you'll act like a jock. Costume changes - will never give you the answer you're looking for. Personality can't be purchased in a skateboard store.

A music revolution? No, I will not invest. Same old institution, but I'm not impressed.

We change our scene, we change our fashion, but can we change our mind? An alternative nation's intellectual unless we change our mind.

Has the pit just become the dance of the dead. We're moved by vibration with no brains in our head. Ego boost put you up on the top of the crowd. You only care that the music is loud.

When Seasons Change

You've got to let me grow, got to let me be me. Did you really think that time would freeze? A stagnant stand still just see - see what you've got? To know you've got to grow, got to move from your spot.

When summers gone and autumn comes and everything has changed. Why is it so strange? Why should we complain?

Stuck in the scene circles as fads grow and die. But positive living and thoughtful thinking don't apply. We must learn what to embrace and what to throw away or we'll make the same mistakes tomorrow that we beat yesterday.

When summers gone and autumn comes and everything has changed. Why is it so strange? Why should we complain?

When seasons change will I stay same?

Is It Education...?

High school enforced the way to achieve diploma will get you all that you need.

Follow their system bent to their threats and 4 years later you're buried in debts.

Is it education of just wasting your time.

Learned how to drink and how to get laid, and when it's all over you want to get paid. Been called a loser, ruined moms dreams, but I don't rate success by some college degree.

Is it education or just wasting your time.

I know what you've been taught. I know how you feel. I know that you've been caught and it's lost all it appeal.

Apology

Ingenious ways of wasting time. Misused intelligence seems like a crime. Internet gossip got you glued to the screen. Ignoring the world beyond your five favourite zines.

And I'm sorry for the apathy. And I'm sorry for the lethargy. Won't let it get a hold of me. Cause I won't settle for mediocrity.

I heard your plans, please go through with it. I won't criticize, I've got no use for it. Armchair critics?! They already blew it. Let the dogs bark - I'm just going to do it.

The way we walk, or talk we've just been playing. We've been playing these roles. Its plain to see we've lost sight of our goals. Oh yes, just obsessed to impress. Is that what - is that what we consider success. Consider success. (x2)
