Track Name: Extra-Terrestrial
Hello, out there, can anybody hear me? (x2)

We need some help
We're in big trouble

(woah)

On behalf of planet Earth
On behalf of the Human race
I formally request,
Any aid that you can send

I'm calling for help
To anyone who's listening
Destruction is imminent
Everyday we get a little bit closer
We're on the eve of destruction
Track Name: Capitalize
We live, in this toxic perversion of capitalism
That will prove to be, the demise of our nation, race and planet

Where money and power,
Act as an end,
To justify,
Any means

Where individuals willingly, push their morals to the side
Trading valuable time, for riches that surpass need or luxary

Where money and power,
Act as an end,
To justify,
Any means

Where the value of life,
And the value of death,
Are simplified,
Into currency

In this world we live in, our values are astray
We're determined to succeed in a monetary way
We ignore all the factors, push our morals to the side
We fight for the scraps as we struggle to survive

Corruption
Greed
Money
Succeed

We live, in this toxic perversion of capitalism
That will prove to be, the demise of our nation, race and planet

CAP-I-TAL-IZE!
Track Name: I'm Bad At Feelings And Stuff
Sometimes when I look at you I think of who I am
Because I have you beside me, in everything I do
Sometimes when I look at you I think of who I was
Before me met you, and how much we've grown together

Sometimes, I regret to say
I've wished it was never this way

But in the end I know that we've done right
Side by side, fighting the fight
No matter what I need,
You've always been there for me
I'll always be there, for you

Together we live and together we'll grow
All the place we've been, all the places we'll go
I hope you know how much I've learned from you.
Track Name: Privilege
I've got hours and hour and hours of time
Money in the bank and a hand full of friends
I can't think of a reason,
To feel the way that I feel

It's your birthday, it's a holiday
I don't give a shit anymore
Monday, Tuesday, Saturday, Wednesday
Everyday is such a bore

(woahs)

Privilege and guilt lay atop one another
Forcing me to think about who I ought to be
To realize who I am
And why I came to be where I am

(woahs)
Track Name: False Sense Of Freedom
In the shadows of the morning
We wake with every day,
We never stop to think,
Why are things this way

Nine to five we go to work
In the evening to the bar
Thankful for every second
And sip of alcohol

Forced into, a false sense of freedom
Forced into, a senseless way of life
Everyday,
We gotta find a way,
To make our way
To another day
A false sense of freedom

No one ever asked me,
If I want to be apart of this, society
Forced into life
Forced into law
Unsure what true freedom could possibly be

Forced into, a false sense of freedom
Forced into, a senseless way of life
Everyday,
We gotta find a way,
To make our way
To another day
A false sense of freedom
