Track Name: So Called Freedom
I'm gonna start a war; make big business happy
Rid the world of dictators; 'till none are left but me
Wanna see them golden arches; sprouting up like mushrooms in Iraq
Instead of reparations; an oil for food programme

I bring you freedom; with a hamburger and a bible in my hand
So-called freedom; the world at my command

While we're on freedom; let's not forget Afghanistan
Where we took our prisoners & locked 'em in Nazi death camps
But you said nothing then; why should we listen to you now?
That we've got a new target; same shit different smell

I bring you freedom; with a hamburger and a bible in my hand
So-called freedom; the world at my command

Diplomacy only works in North Korea; 'cause their bombs are just that little bit to near
With one button; they'd blow us away... and what would you do without the U.S.A?

Who'd spread freedom? Insure the rapture prevails?
So-called freedom... who needs it anyway?
Track Name: Domestic Life
Every day I make the same decisions
That make domestic life worth living
And I'll be making them until I'm dead
Whose product should I boycott today?
To serve a noble cause, but hey
In the end... the results always the same

I sit around and I watch the fucking tube
What the hell am I supposed to do?
When my actions won't save any whales?

Can't live my life for me; can't do as I please
So I won't see the things I wanna see
And won't lead the life that I wanna lead
It seems I always get the short end of the stick
I'm starting to dislike it
One of these days...I'm gonna explode

I sit around and I watch the fucking tube
What the hell am I supposed to do?
When my actions won't save any whales?

Domestic life stinks, it's not for me
But now I hooked on the T.V
I've been domesticated, just like a cat

'cause I sit around and I watch the fucking tube
What the hell am I supposed to do?
When my actions won't save any whales?
Track Name: Colour of Money
China's made the news again
Human rights abused again
Killing off all their prisoners
Selling their organs to the highest bidders

Bullet in the head
Bang, bang; you're dead
Colour of money ain't green its fucking red
Track Name: Wise Men
Let me tell you 'bout a so-called "wise man",
Who in a week created earth and on the seventh day man
Gave him a brain to build weapons to kill & defend
Divided him by race and culture then the shit hit the fan

Hate & war, war and glory
Death and destruction adds spice to the story
And all the kings horses and all the kings men
Waged total war until the bitter end
'Cause one man shouted "Jihad" to take a stand
And as for the others, they all jumped on the band wagon

Death before dishonour, I heard 'em sing
When the body bags came home I heard the church bells ring
All the brave soldiers fought to the bitter end
But I never saw no one, rise from the dead my friend!

Heard one man shout "what are you fighting for?"
But his voice was drowned out by the sound of war
Those who led the armies had megaphones
And the masses heard and followed like good little ghouls
No one ever dared to question if it all made sense
They just continued paying taxes that got spent on new weapons

Death before dishonour, I heard 'em sing
When the body bags came home I heard the church bells ring
All the brave soldiers fought to the bitter end
But I never saw no one, rise from the dead my friend!

And on the 8th day all of the gods did unite
And just like their followers, got into a fight
Mohammed said to Jesus "you're a fucking fraud"
And Buddha got pissed and called Zeus a whore
They all just pointed fingers, 'till they turned blue and black
They got sick of pointing, and cut off each others hands
And that's the best the came up with,
Our beloved "wise men"
Track Name: Up to You
I see a world about to kill itself
A world full of misery
And violence, and silence
When it comes to speaking your mind
I see a world full of discontent
A world that seems hell-bent
On blowing itself off of the fucking map!

It's up to you
To make the world a better place to live in
It's up to you
To do the things you told me, you want to do
It's up to you to change...
It's up to you and me!

I see a species and its extinction
A species bred on hate
And violence, and silence
A species bred to follow...
I see a species and it's certain death
A slow and painful death
Like cancer; rotting...
From the inside out...

It's up to you
To make the world a better place to live in
It's up to you
To do the things you told me, you want to do
It's up to you to change...
It's up to you and me!
Track Name: Where have all your days gone?
Life's tough and it don't stop
Life's tough and it won't stop

'Cause you're working every day,
Running all around just like a stray dog
Chasing your tail, you can't tell your head from your a-hole
'Cause you're working every day,
Did you ever stop and think "where have all my days gone?"
Where have all your days gone?
Oh, where have all your days gone?

Life's tough and it don't stop; it just nags at you
Life's tough and it won't stop; it just nags at you
Track Name: 3 AM
Back on my feet; no thanks to you
And all the stupid fucking shit you put me through
3 months of heaven; 12 months of hell
Without a single waking hour free from you spell

Kept asking what I did wrong
Didn't see it for so long
My only mistake was loving you

First I hit the bottle; then I hit the bong
Always blaming me and never you for what went wrong
But now I know better; than to hate myself
'Cause if you don't love yourself, how can you love somebody else?

For every day spent with you; I spent a week black and blue
After all the tears that I cried; you never wept wonder why?

You weren't.... worth it!
Track Name: Pretty Shit Protection
Pretty shit protection; never felt so good
Pretty shit protection; does exactly what it should
Got you using their encryption
Thinking your all safe and sound
Even SSL connections; are nothing but a farce

You encrypt with PGP, you surf the web on Tor and still they see
Everything you do and see; shit protection
