Track Name: Buy Or Beware
Environmental marketing scams,
They sweep upon our nation
Manufactured eco-labels, of
Misleading assertion
A hidden trade off between two evils
Which is the lesser?
Go, and ask your professor

No proof
The irrelevance of false labels
And all that dumb shit we see on cable

Commercials for organic cigarettes,
A stock market exchange based on petty bets
They misconstrue
They lie to you
Muffle the truth
That's the problem now isn't it?

Buy or beware
Why the fuck should you care

Sex and scandal has a very firm handle on
Every single thing that we buy
Just another tabloid now
And never will you avoid
It defeats the truth and lies
Why don't you go and buy this dress or you'll never please your guy
Why don't you put down the magazine don't give in to their lies
Track Name: Riding Bikes
I stop and start to think about the life I lead these years
If I'm any role model to live by while I push away my peers
Just like I'm trying to hide my shame
Please forgive me little sisters, and little brothers for my ways

I used to be a good kid you know
always straight home right after school
didn't talk back, did just like I was told
and boy do I ever miss those days
when my only daily vice was riding bikes and video games
Track Name: Piece of Mind
I seem to have lost my self control and with it my independent thought. It sucks; my free will is at an all time low, I'm a sucker for cheap booze, and smokes.

They told me that I’d come to be satisfied; but in the mean time, please wait in line I’m trying to find some solace, some piece of mind Everything is going to be fine. I’ve heard that once too many times.

The bottle is half empty and I feel like shit. I'd be optimistic but come now, let's face it; I'm trapped here, with the flickering of the screen, These fake-ass T.V. personalities and I'm screaming, "Do you take credit, or how much cash do I need?"

I seem to have lost my self control and with it my independent thought. It sucks; my free will is at an all time low, I'm a sucker for cheap booze, and smokes.
Track Name: Labels
Call me an asshole cause I don't agree with what you say
Call me a loser cause I'd rather go play video games
Call me an idiot cause I'd don't believe in things that you do
Well that's okay, I guess; I think you're an idiot, too

Well that's okay cause my skin's thick
I just don't want to be part of it
Why can't we just agree to disagree

Call me a weirdo cause I like to keep to myself
Call me a faggot cause I haven't fucked as many as you
Call me a poseur cause I don't quite fit the bill
Well god dammit aren't we all just a little superficial?

Well that's okay cause my skin's thick
I just don't want to be part of it
Why can't we just agree to disagree

You exercise your god damn right
To label with names and words you don't understand
I will exercise my god damn right
To question everything that comes from your fucking head
