Track Name: Secret
I know a secret but I am gonna keep it
Until it makes me lots of money
I'll never tell it at least not until I sell it
It's gonna make me lots of money

I know your secret.

This cloak & dagger won't protect you any longer
Everybody's got a price
I see you squirming and I can fell the burning
There's still a chance to get it right

I know a secret but I am gonna keep it
Until it makes me lots of money
No I won't tell it at least not before I sell it
It's gonna make me lots of money

I know your secret
Track Name: 3 Cheers for Revolution
What's the story yeah what's going down?
I see some lips moving but I can't hear them make a sound
I'm sick of waiting here for something profound
Now you need to believe it's time to call those bastards out

Cause the kids are not right
And your t.v. set lies
So stand up and fight

Three cheers for revolution
It's my home, my flag, my pistol
Three cheers for revolution
Hands up, this time with feeling

Now it's so hard to get out of bed
With so many people talking and they don't mean a word they said
Keeps you brain dead and corn fed
It's time to start a revolution in the head

Cause the kids are not right
And your t.v. set lies
So stand up and fight

No this shit is not right
If you want to survive
You gotta stand up and fight

Three cheers for revolution
It's my home, my flag, my pistol
Three cheers for revolution
Hands up, this time with feeling
Track Name: Happy (but you're not)
Hey golden boy
Everybody sees you
With your head down at the corner of the bar
Flash a smile
Hope they believe you
Cause faking it can get you pretty far

You should be happy... but you're not
You could be satisfied... but you're not
You wanna shine brighter... but you're not
You ought to be thankful for what you've got

What a lucky man
Everybody wants you
Or at least they all want something that you've got
But like a naughty boy
On Christmas morning
You throw a fit if you don't get everything you want

You should be happy... but you're not
You could be satisfied... but you're not
You wanna shine brighter... but you're not
You ought to be thankful for what you've got
Track Name: Silence
Silence!.. Silence!.. Silence!
My one, my one - True enemy

Now we need it more than ever
Now we need it
Now we need it more than ever
Said now we need it

I'm sick and tired from the same damn things
You'd say we suffer from the same disease
I'll show you something and I couldn't believe
It's the light that, the light that

Silence!... Silence!... Silence!
My one, my one - True enemy

But now we need it more than ever
Said now we need it
Now we need it more than ever
Now we need it

You'd say I better get up from my knees
I'd say we're heading for the same damn dream
You'll show me something and I couldn't believe
It's the light that, the lie that
I'm sick and tired from the same damn things
You'd say we suffer from the same disease
I'll show you something and you couldn't believe
It's the lie that, like that
Track Name: Slow Down
We don't know why
Oh no We don't know why
We keep running away
We keep running away

We will survive
Oh yeah we will survive
It's just a coming of age
Just a coming of age

You're running fast again
I'm pulling back again
We're nowhere near the end and
My nerves are wearing thin

Slow down let it be
Things ain't like they used to be
Go out on the street
Hit 'em with some apathy
No I'll never be
The pretty thing you want to keep
Slow down let it be
Things ain't like they used to be no no

Keep it in line
We don't keep it in line
Cause we've got nothing to prove
We've got nothing to prove

Open your eyes
I said open your eyes
We've got nothing to lose
There is nothing to lose

You're running fast again
I'm pulling back again
We're nowhere near the end and
My faith is wearing thin

Slow down let it be
Things ain't like they used to be
Go out on the street
Hit 'em with some apathy
No I'll never be
The pretty thing you want to keep
Slow down let it be
Things ain't like they used to be no no

We all get high
Oh Yeah we all get high
Cause there's nothing to do
And we've got nothing to lose

Slow down let it be
Things ain't like they used to be
Go out on the street
Hit 'em with some apathy
No I'll never be
The pretty thing you want to keep
Slow down let it be
Things ain't like they used to be no no
Track Name: Violin
Violin likes to sing to me when we're alone
Violin tries to make me laugh, she's a clown

Nothing you could do could make me put my violin down

She is the first to kiss my morning lips
Can't wait to feel her on my fingertips

Nothing you could do could make me put my violin down
In ten thousand years she'll still be around

Sing to me my violin
Sing me songs about lovers
Tell me everything will be alright
While we dance alone in candle light

Everywhere I go she's always there
I take my violin everywhere

Nothing you could do could make me put my violin down
In ten thousand years she'll still be around

Sing to me my violin
Sing me songs about lovers
Tell me everything will be alright
While we dance alone yeah yeah
Sing to me my violin
Sing me songs that make me happy
Tell me everything will be alright
While we dance alone in candle light

Cause I really need a friend tonight

Sing to me my violin
Sing me songs about lovers
Tell me everything will be alright
While we dance alone yeah yeah
Sing to me my violin
Sing me songs that make me happy
Tell me everything will be alright
While we dance alone in candle light

Cause you're my only friend tonight
Track Name: Son of a Gun
It was a bottle of wills
Since I stopped eatin' her pills
Not just a moment in time
For the death, dumb, and blind
I was runnin' away
She was nippin' my heels
Thought I could make my escape
but she hadn't had her fill

Cause my sister she needs me
She can see that I'm the one
But the system it bleeds me
cause its easy - when you're numb

I'm a son of a gun

I was heading out west
I had to see who's the best
Now I'm back in the east
Cause I was sellin' some peace
And I'm off to the war
They need more killing machines
From shore to bloody shore
Spreads this infectious disease

Cause my sister she needs me
She believes that I'm the one
If the system would feed me
I would eat it well done
Yeah my sister she sees it
She believes that we are one
But the system it bleeds me
Cause it's easy - with a gun

I'm a son of a Gun
Track Name: Unfunny
They're speaking in tongues and praying with all of their might
Follow the leader till somebody gives them a sign

But if the sky is falling down, down, down
We better run for cover

It's a little bit unfunny
The joke's on everybody
It's a little bit too much to take

Cast out a line if you think you'll get lucky tonight
But don't take offence if you don't get the fishes to bite

All my life I've fallen down, down, down
And my heart is breaking

It's a little bit unfunny
The joke's on everybody
It's a little bit too much to take
It's a little bit unfunny
A change has got to come
It's a little bit too much to take
Track Name: Metaphor
I can't steal what has all been paid for
There's no hurry cause time is a metaphor
You! So, stop thinking about you
And roll up another one
Cause there's nothing better to do

I gotta feeling this has all been done before
But we keep spinning like a long lost Cosmonaut
Fools! Yeah, I'm talking about you
So pass me the bottle
Cause there's nothing better to do

I'm not gonna fall back in line
I'll let it all pass me by
This time

I can't deal with the songs on the radio
All I'm hearing are the technical enhancement
Tools! It's all stereo drool
So remix another hit
Cause we got nothing better to do

I'm not gonna fall back in line
I'll let it all pass me by
This time
We're not gonna swallow your lies
We'll let the fall change our minds

I got a feelin' this has all been done before
There no hurry cause time is a metaphor You
Track Name: We Will Overcome
I'll stand
By you if you stand
We will overcome
I'll go
Anywhere that you go
And we will overcome

If fear collides I'll take the blow for you
I'm on your side to stay

Take my hand we'll rise together
Hold your head above the water
And you can stand up on my shoulders
We will overcome

We will overcome

I'll fight
With all of my might
Until we overcome
It's a long road
But you know I'll follow
And we will overcome

When darkness cries I can be the light
I'm on your side to stay

Take my hand we'll rise together
Hold your head above the water
And you can stand up on my shoulders
We will overcome

We will overcome

No pain no fear tonight the world is ours
I'm on your side forever

Take my hand we'll rise together
Hold your head above the water
And you can stand up on my shoulders
We will overcome

We will overcome
