2. A PASSAGE IN TIME

Here we go
Think about the promises that kept you walking wandering in time
Whoa!
Don't you know they kept you walking kept you wanting
kept you walking everybody!
In time
I keep on thinking the same old thing, but then again what can I say?
I keep on trying to live my life, I keep trying to ?nd a better way!
Well as everyday goes by I'll try, but I don't know if I'll make it through
But I'll move along and push on until I do
Because everything that you'd tried to build in time
Well that's everything you'd tried to hide
Well that's everything that you want to believe
Your motivation puts you where you'll be
What a way, don't waste away in time!
Well I'm seeing through the eyes of a modern man that I don't know
Should I try to ?nd? Could I buy the time? I don't know
Well stand together, we will forever, gotta bet we'll be okay
Wide-eyed reminisce, what a blissful good ol' days
So here we go, through eyes that I don't know
Will we move along? Time will only show,
because it's everything that you want to believe
A revelation, ?nd a way to see all those memories are not put up on the side!
When you look around the world and the scenes,
all the means, little things, what it means to you
When suddenly, no warning to mourning,
what you think takes a total different point of view
What it means, little things, all the means,
world scenes turn around and take a look at you
You never know when you go, live it up here we go!
Got a lot more living to do! Hey! In time・br> You don't face tomorrow what a way to waste away in life
You're taking for granted all the little things you'd never realized
Well I'm 21 today, how many more? How should I know?
Counting down the days here we go!
Because everything that you tried to build in time
Well that's everything you tried to hide!
Well that's everything that you want to believe
Your motivation puts you where you'll be
What a way, don't waste away in time!
Every little thing you tried to build in time!


3. LYING AWAKE

Lying awake, lost in time, with no reason to turn around and put it all aside yeah!
Here today, gone tomorrow, while drowning in all of their sorrows!
At age 14 no inhibitions, and I sure as hell did not need your permission
Never looking forward, and I was never looking back, and I'd never known what's next
But as the days had gone by, both ignorant and blind
New visions of a world started ?lling my eyes!
Tossing and turning, with eyes open wide, that is where I ?nd!
I'm lying awake, lost in time, with no reason to turn around and put it all aside yeah!
Here today, gone tomorrow, while drowning in all of their sorrows!
Years go by as we start to see
So many generations torn by poverty and greed
So many whining that their lives are oh so bad
But far better than so many, it's sad!
Becoming intoxicated by all of the madness
And all of the pain that they've been through
Hoping and searching, a world in despair, right outside, no more!
I'm lying awake, lost in time, with no reason to turn around and put it all aside yeah!
Here today, gone tomorrow, while drowning in all of their sorrows!
There's just got to some other way, those people are dying today
There's just got to be some other time, that they are going to ?nd
There's just got to be some sort of progress, some other way they're going to know
There's just got to be another means to an end, here's to hoping that it will show!
Wake up!
Like some people in our society
And it grows, planted like a seed
So what do we do when it comes down on you
Cries ring out as a chime for awakening
Taking the time to listen up, maybe don't turn away
Maybe showing interest could show them light of day
(Can't you see their faces)
Well it's a pretty ?ne line as community paces
Stepping up to the edge daily different cases
(Oh can't you see their faces coming around, so many faces,
different places with so many face down)
Third world tragedy, another in store
Another taste of what's real, can they take anymore?
Lying awake, lost in time with no reason to turn around and put it all aside, yeah!
Here today, gone tomorrow, while drowning in all of their sorrows
Awake, lost in time, with no reason to turn around and put it all aside, yeah!
Here today gone tomorrow, while drowning in all of their sorrows!
I'm lying awake!


4. EVERYDAY

I look around and it's the same old situation on a different day
These masses of confrontation beating me down
I'm picking at the pieces to put them all back into place
A never ending crossword of questions collaborates
While asking myself, where are we going in time?
But hey, everyday, I'll pick my feet up off the ground
And everyday you'll see, I don't make believe
That everything is okay, but in the end
The life that you choose to lead is your fate
You'll see
Communication with yourself and asking,
"Is this really where I want to be?"
No way!
Patronized, antagonized, and bound beyond
the boundaries of everyday life
A mutual enmity for a system of conformity, and asking myself,
Is this really where I want to be?
Anchors away, don't let it drag you down oh no!
But hey everyday, I'll pick my feet up off the ground
And everyday you'll see, I don't make believe
That everything is okay, but in the end
The life that you choose to lead is your fate
You'll see・!!!
Well I know by now, but keep wondering how
How many times will I fall?
I'll keep standing tall!
Everything you talk about and everything you see
Everybody's trying to tell you who you want to be
Don't try to separate reality from dreaming
Trust yourself, keep on believing
I think I can is all that you can really tell yourself
Just keep on and moving my friend oh yeah someday you're gonna see!
That hey everyday, well I'll pick my feet up off the ground
And everyday, you'll see, I don't make believe
That everything is okay, but in the end
The life that you choose to lead is your fate
You're gonna see


5. ONE MORE MINUTE

I'm going back to where I came from
So far away, but not so far from home
Where I lay my head down by the sea
I'm going back to where'd go
So far away, but not so far from home
Where I'd rest, where I'd lay so peacefully

But by the way,
I want a break, and want to put this stress aside
But above all things I want to lay by the Oceanside
The ocean waves, no other way, get away
Well I'm finding!
Oh no, my daily worries want to drift away, Fine!
Dying and trying just to find some sort of piece of mind
Now's the time, to get away, I'm going away!

No other place to go, I've got to get away, let's get away! Away...

One more minute, the beaches San Diego,
One more minute!
One more minute, the beaches Mexico
One more minute!
One more minute, we kick it back poolside
One more minute, and we're down by the Oceanside
One more minute, one more minute, one more minute!

So far away, and dowdy on the beach
I want to clear my head and bake it in the warm sunshine
Want to relay relaxation
With the horizon straight away
And a ring around my arm from a long day, of making angels in the sand
Pacifico in my hand!

No other place to go, I've got to get away, let's get away! Away...

The sunshine in my eyes, and the flamenco in the skies
The only way, you'll ever know, is to go, is to go!

Shed the light all day...


6. SUPERBITCH

I see you walkin' as you're walkin' by
I gotta wonder, gotta wonder why
I'm gonna give it to you just one more time
Cuz baby when I see your face
You take me away to that special place
Take me away and you're tellin' me that you're mine
You're never ever gonna see
That baby it's just you and me
Come on baby girl now you're so fine
So come on baby take my hand
Come on girl you've gotta understand
That I'm going away so that I can be with you!
We're gonna!
Boom, Boom, Boom
Clearin' the room
Starin' like a goon
If you're under the zero sound you will be soon
Estamos trayendo mucho ruido
Y no pueden decir nada 'bout the phunk style that we do
We get down
I thought forever, happiness it was so close to me
Happiness too good to be
Too good to be, too good to be yeah!
I swore I'd always have you by my side
But now I know I was just along for the ride!
The ride!
Fumondo mota just ain't no thing
Y acabo de suber tu madre just the same
I got my boys
We came to make noise
And everybody's gonna be down with the phunk sound
Be together I thought forever
Well happiness is so close to me,
happiness too good to be
Too good to be, too good to be yeah!
I swore I'd always have you by my side
But now I know I was just along for the ride
You heard it once before come one and hear it again
Bitches ain't shit, but hoes and trix yeah!
You tore me all apart you put me right in two
Well nothing was there like it was supposed to
But fuck it, forget it because nothing's the same
I'm moving up in life making myself a name
Push me around, do what you gotta do
You cold-hearted bitch I gotta big fuck you!
I'm moving up in life and I'm forgetting about you
Can't you see you fuckin' bitch we're through!
Yeah! And I'm forgetting about you!


7. SKY'S THE LIMIT

Yeah! Yeah!
Every single day when I get out of bed
Well the chances are I'm gonna wind up dead
Well, don't you know that it'll be alright?
Well what I don't know about is bottoming out
On an obsession putting me up on a mountainside
Up high, yeah that's right
Look down I see, all the distance around
Staring back at me, wondering why
What I see makes it hard to believe
Birds-eye-view of terrain open wide!
Go! Go to the sky!
Devote and try
Don't you want to believe?
Go! Go to the sky!
Devote your life, no boundaries
Now taking a chance, what a better way?
At least you tried, that's more than a lot can say
Thinking will only take you so far
Freedom unbinding, binding your feet again
What a better time to get up and on?
An environment to conquer and carve
No boundaries, what a maze of trees
With an opening so deep inside
No sketchin' on a session
You wanted a world of progression
And we're just trying to make it out alive!
Go! Go to the sky!
Devote and try
Don't you want to believe?
Go! Go to the sky!
Devote your life, no boundaries!
No way to con?ne!
Here on this day
Don't turn away
Fed up with just saying I might
Now out on a limb
There's no giving in
And I'm not gonna take it this time
Well here upon this day
I won't turn away
I'm fed up with just saying I might
Now out on a limb
There's no giving in
And we're not gonna take it this time
Out there in the clear!
Wrapped around by a blistering degree
I'm on top of the world and serene
Wide awake, wide awake, are we?
Are we?
Now what in the hell, what am I supposed to do?
Just turn around and regret it
Or press on and make it through?
See life is a lesson, one big fucking session
And it's right there in front of you
Go! Go to the sky!
Devote and try
Don't you want to believe?
Go! Go to the sky!
Devote your life, no boundaries!
Go! Go to the sky!
Devote your life
Don't you want to believe?
Go! Go to the sky!
Devote your life, no boundaries!


8. SOME PEOPLE

As you go!
On your way, throughout it all, without a questioning of consequence in store
And all the things that you wanted, made for a better way of everything they're using you for
That's when you feel like you're dying, and want to and some place to go
And then you say that you'll and a better way, like so many times before, as you go!
So many pro?ting, from your misfortune and a broken intuition brought abuse
Now as they're gloating in your face and stand so prominent
Now asking how you had ever have a chance without a clue!
That's when you feel like you're dying, and want to and some place to go!
And then you say that you'll and a better way, like so many times before, as you go!
Look at the faces that you trust and put them up inside your head!
And out of all the faces that you see, who's gonna be there in the end?
And out of all the times that you have turned, like so many times before
Who's gonna be the one to turn their back, running out that door!
Some people! Trying on their fake-ass two faces, saying they only want what's best for you
But hidden deep down within all their smiles, was depravity arising soon
That's when you feel like you're dying, and want to and some place to go!
And then you say that you've found a better way, than so many times before, as you go!
Look at the faces that you trust and put them up inside your head!
And out of all the faces that you see, who's gonna be there in the end?
And out of all the times that you have turned, like so many times before
Who's gonna be the one to turn their back, running out that door!
How many people want to and the time and want to make your fantasies come true?
How many people want to tell you lies and want to tell you what you're supposed to do?
And when you gonna realize that it's all just in your head?
Think for you, for yourself instead!
Far away, far from home, from the truth and the lies
Far away from things that they tell you, well that's where you'll and
That's when you feel like you're trying and then you've found some place to go!
And now you say that you've found a better way, than so many times before, as you go!
Look at the faces that you trust and put them up inside your head!
And out of all the faces that you see, who's gonna be there for you in the end?
And out of all the times that you had turned, like so many times before
Who's gonna be the one to turn their back? Running out that door!
Out that door!
Out that door!
Out that door!


9. MESA TOWN

I'm going down to Mesa Town,
I'm gonna see what the fuck is going down
Don't know all you people here, so I'm gonna have another beer
1, 2, 3, 4 Billy's headin' out the door
He's going down to Mesa Town and lookin' to score
Billy don't know you people there
So if you got beef I got his back so don't you fuckin' dare
You stupid ass pigs come walkin' my way

Whoa whoa whoa whoa yeah yeah

Well I had a girl she left me too, she left me for some other dude
Well, I really wish her well, she made my life a living hell
Going down to Mesa Town to see the sites,
and get in ?ghts with people downtown
Well there ain't nothin' going down here yeah
So me and Bill will sit and chill and have ourselves a beer
Well I don't know you, and you don't know me

Well I've got my boys, well don't you know,

Phase three!

11. OVER SEASONS

Over seasons, like so many times before
You drop drop drop it 'til you break down the walls
Over seasons, when you come disobey
Just keep on droppin' 'til the break of the day
Over seasons, like so many times before
You drop drop drop it till you break down the walls
Over seasons, when you come not obey
Just keep drop drop drop drop・br> Back in 1994 there was no reason that we had wanted to play
But a vision of expression
An ability to reason with the worries in our lives
An ability we'd recognized
How many times, would composition turn into confession?
Building a foundation for our youth to grow into progression
Making our days, free-will reside, we say!
Now you know things ain't right
And the pressure that you're granted from this life
And forever you had wondered what's in store
'Til you stand up and not take it anymore!
Doubted about the things you do
And de?ant of your scattered mental institute
No second guessing when it's already past
Denying that it wouldn't last
Here's to the days, here's to the nights
Throughout the years, how many nights? Here's to the daze that paved the way! We say!
Now you know things ain't right
And the pressure that you're granted from this life
And forever you had wondered what's in store
That's when you stand up and not take it anymore!
Like we'd done before!
The seize of day, turned on into night!
And open wide!


12. GOOD OL' DAYS

Let's go!
Watching your friends grow up around you really sucks but that's okay
Cuz I'm doing the same
The same old people that they ever were, but new problems
And new times always seem to change their smiling face
Well times are changing, but not me, I'll always stay the same
We're always keeping it fun and games
I'm drinking 40s with my homies in the park, but that's okay
Cuz we'll always stay the same
Well finishing off four kegs is no easy task, but we did it anyway
On Heather's birthday
We got fucked up and layed in the grass all night into the next day
But that's okay!
Well I walk around these streets and see a million faces that I've never seen before
I've got my boys, and nothin's changin'
We'll drink it up, pass me a cup, well don't you fuckin' puke on me
Well that's okay!
We'll drink it up, let's get fucked up, nothing's gonna change, well that's okay
These fuckin' feelings are gonna get to me, we'll do it anyway, well that's okay
People don't realize that we'll always be brothers, and until then
We'll depend on one another, until tonight, how 'bout a fuckin' fight?
Why can't you understand, we're going to demand
It's gonna be alright, me and my boys tonight!


13. NOT YOU

Not you!
Not you!
Not you!
Not you!
I'm me not you!
What have I done, and what am I to believe?
Well, not a single thing you're saying to me
I've had enough my friend, and I'm fed up again
Well it's me not you
See it's my life not yours
Take a look I'm not gonna take anymore
Don't you know it's me not you!
Individuality, what does it mean
I think it's you'll be you, and I'll be me
Your own opinion? Great, grand, good for you
It's still me, not you
It's my life not yours
Take a look I'm not gonna take any more
Don't you know it's me not you.
