Track Name: Bad Behaviour
I know it sounds stupid
But it’s straight to the point
When you walk into the
Walk into the place

You are taking up so much
Taking up so much space
More than any other
More than any other person

You think you're some kind of a saint
I think your some kind of a stranger
All you do is bring me down
Living with your Bad Behaviour

Bad Behaviour
Bad
Track Name: I Love Religion
I love religion!
It keeps the sheep in line
Keeps the unthinking from deviance
With threat, fear and judgment

Of unending punishment

Over and over again!
People miss the point
Take things to extreme
Exploit ideologies

Through the century's
Holding power with sentry's
Fear of the nothing
You tell my son that god created the earth
Track Name: Gotta Bad Feeling
So much bad luck
It feels like it ain’t nothing
Been in this rut so long
I think I'm in the groove

I live the glass half full philosophy
So it's hard to get, get down

I gotta bad, bad feeling
Something’s gotta give
It's the way I live
Paranoid humanoid

I live the glass half full philosophy
So it's hard to get, get down
You eventually learn to live every
Day that way way way

You hear what I say?...fuck it
Track Name: I Wanna Not Be You
I am unimpressed by your excess
Your style of dress, ego caress
I used to think uniforms didn't matter
The great thought assimilator?
However superficial
But it makes us know our tribe

I wanna not be you

It’s so simplistic
Or maybe a pile of shit
My friend, you can't judge a book
By what is written on the back

My perceived notion of this has gone back and forth;
One day it was this way, the next day that
But I secured my identity
It's something inside of me
Track Name: Strange Creatures
When I walk down the street,
I think about the people that I meet
I think of what they do when no one see's
I think what they are on the street

Strange creatures! Yeah!

A disguise of civility
And proper behaviour
Sometimes I wish you were as honest
I wish you were as honest as children
Track Name: People Change
I used to do bad shit but now I'm over it
Broke into a couple homes, pillaged ancient Rome
You used to be my friend, I never saw you again
Now you're too fuckin' hip, what is your trip?

People Change, people change

I used to party with the thieves, now I party with the squares
Used to play drain the bong, now I play solitaire
You used to be my friend, I never saw you again
Now you're too fuckin' hip, what is your trip?

People Change, people change
People Change, people change (maybe I haven't changed)
People Change, people change (have I changed)
People Change, people change (have I changed)
Track Name: Bad Tigers
Some days are black
Some days are white
Some days are grey
You hearing what say?

Sometimes there's evil in your mind
Sometimes you are pure like a child
So when bad thoughts are in your mind
And the demons are trying to get inside

You got to punch (bad) tigers in the face
Track Name: Do Tha Don't Get Down, Get Down
Everyone's got problems
I got problems of my own
I know you know that
I probably stole that

Everyone gets sad
I got sadness of my own
I know that you know that
I probably stole that

Everyone gets down
I can be a downer on my own
I know that you know that
I probably stole that

Do tha don't get down get down

Everyone needs someone
I got someones of my own
I know you know that
Or maybe you don't...?
Track Name: Sorry I Screwed Up
I made a fool out of myself
I made a fool out of you
And there’s nothing I can do
To truly make it up to you

You know I love you baby
And you deserve it too
And there’s nothing I can do
To truly make it up to you

And I’m feeling like a jerk
A child, even worse
I never meant to hurt you
Or make you lose faith

Sometimes I'm selfish
Can't see what's in front of me
Took you for granted
Because of my stupidity

I made a fool out of myself
I made a fool out of you
And there’s nothing I can do
To truly make it up to you

And I’m feeling like a jerk
A child, even worse
I never meant to hurt you
Or make you lose faith

Sorry I screwed up
Track Name: We Against Ourselves
Sometimes the things we do,
Destroy our hopes and dreams
Another case of; we against ourselves!
Sometimes the things we do
Cloud the truth and serve the few
Another case of; we against ourselves!

We almost jumped ship, we almost got tricked
And I started to believe their lies
But I saw it in their eyes

We are free!
Free to imbibe,
Dance, drink and fuck and fight

As long as we're not paying attention.
We think we are doing what we want
When we are doing just what they want us to do
The working class are drugged and satisfied
Track Name: In My Heart
You never know the feeling
Coursing through my veins
In all it's beautiful imperfection
You'll never understand...man

Freedom can't be found in a more pure state
Trapped in the rhythm, but it’s not a trap
Not until you’re in it...

And it makes me sing:
Whoa!


You never know the feeling
Coursing through my veins
In all it's beautiful imperfection
You'll never understand...man

Freedom can't be found in a more pure state
Trapped in the rhythm, but it’s not a trap

It’s in my heart, it’s in my brain
It’s in my blood that’s in my veins
