Track Name: Hurricane
I move through life like a motherfuckin' hurricane
But I ain't stopping soon
You better find shelter from my helter skelter
Cause I ain't got nothing left to lose

And there I go with my victory lap
And here you go with your hypocrite act

I've been waiting oh so long
For a chance to save myself
And you could kill me 'till I'm dead
But I'll meet you down in hell

Take back control of the world we live in
Cause everything's seems grey
I'm looking for you to back me up when
Everything just fades away
And there goes my napalm
A sonic blast of chaotic words
Sometimes it's hopeless
That you just can't cope with
My sense of purpose in this world

And there I go with my victory lap
And here you go with your hypocrite act

I've been waiting oh so long
For a chance to save myself
And you could kill me 'till I'm dead
But I'll meet you down in hell

Take me as I am or leave me
Cause I can only change when I see fit
I'm not blind to any new ideas
And I'm not blind to bullshit
Track Name: Back With A Vengeance
Here I am and I'm back with a vengeance
Might as well given me a death sentence
Been so long since I made my statement
It's kinda hard when you're not that patient
And so it goes that the world is crazy
I never knew it cause I've been so lazy
Alone, so stoned
Why is it that I am always doing what I'm told?

I've been nothing but good to you
And you treated me like dirt
Things may be oh so complicated
I'm sorry but the truth may hurt
You try to tell me but I just don't listen
Cause I've heard all your stories before
Every time they come out they're a little different
I guess that's what my patience is for

I'm coming down like a lifelong junkie
And I believe that we came from monkeys
Always want to challenge everybody with reason
And they try to lock me up for treason
I get upset when you pull me under
Keep me hidden from the sound of thunder
So long, I'm gone
Further proof that I am always right and you are wrong

I've been nothing but good to you
And you treated me like dirt
Things may be oh so complicated
I'm sorry but the truth may hurt
You try to tell me but I just don't listen
Cause I've heard all your stories before
Every time they come out they're a little different
I guess that's what my patience is for
Track Name: Metaphysical
I was born in the summer for 1985
Not a day goes by that I'm not still struggling to survive
I wouldn't mind if a wave came and washed us all away
But that's the nihilist inside my metaphysical brain
I'm so plugged in to the world of 1984
They got the means to destroy if you're a provocateur
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, in this postwar digital age
And we're all slaves to the millennial American way

And I know there's nothing I can do
And I know you'll help me make it through
Somehow, someway, I've got to make a change
I'm way to set in my ways

Now it seems to me that we're all sensitive to the touch
Everyone's offended, and now it's become just a little too much
I'd rather die than sell myself to an ideal
I only like the things that make me feel so fucking real
I'll play the victim if you save me from myself
I'm way too proud to ever ask for someone's help
It's just a crime that there's no time, to go back and start again
The story's over when we finally reach the end

And I know there's nothing I can do
And I know you'll help me make it through
Somehow, someway, I've got to make a change
I'm way to set in my ways
Track Name: Goodbye Tonight
There are times I'm so afraid
From all the choices that I've made
Every time I go too far I lose my mind
And every chance you get ahead I'm way behind

There's a place where I belong
Where you can't see what's right from wrong
Every time we hold our hands we close our eyes
And every kiss you owe to me, we'll share tonight

You are everything I thought you would be
When you loved me
And I am not worthy of you
but I'll stay true and I'll love you too

Take from me all the things you will
I'd sell my soul for another thrill
I wish you luck in all the things you want to do
Just hold me tight tonight before we come unglued

Tomorrow starts a brand new life
Where all my wrongs have become right
Every time we hold our hands we close our eyes
And now it's time for us to finally say goodbye

You are everything I thought you would be
When you loved me
And I am not worthy of you
but I'll stay true and I'll love you too
Track Name: An Angel's Reply
Tell me, what can I do
I'm looking for the truth in your love
I've been sent here by God
To watch over you from above
I gave up my wings to be by your side
Cause there's no heaven without your bright light
This is an angel's reply
I wont let you die all alone

And his love was ancient
And her love was free
Their endless devotion
Will last for infinity
And he would move mountains
And she cross streams
May their love last forever
Forever in eternity

Tell me are you my friend
I swear this time that this is the end
I've been this way before
No matter what I'm gonna need more
I gave up my soul
So you can walk the earth
And all that's left in my heart a hole
Please save me from myself
I'm stuck in my personal hell

And his love was ancient
And her love was free
Their endless devotion
Will last for infinity
And he would move mountains
And she cross streams
May their love last forever
Forever in eternity

Tell me, what can I do
I'm looking for the truth in your love
I've been sent here by God
To watch over you from above
Track Name: Never Be Unchained
I've been face down in the water for a long, long time
In the mud, in the sludge, in the crud, in the rocks, in the slime
What comes around, goes around
And that's what really hurts

When you've been moving on to the bitter end
Moving on

I've outgrown this town like a salmon on a river bed
I gotta make my way to the place inside my head
Where the hopeless souls still left inside
Like to gather round cause they'll be never found

Trapped in the middle ground
Moving on

I wish I knew me before
I wish I had a chance to change
But if things end up that way
It might not be the same
And I will never be unchained

Sometimes you feel so good like a drug running through my veins
You end my pain when it rains and when I feel like I'm going insane
I like to lose my mind, and walk a very fine line
I wanna get to heaven but I don't think that I'll have the time

To redeem all my crimes
Moving on

It seems every man had a time where he had to be bad
You get burned and you learn you can't avoid making someone mad
You gotta follow your path and make the devil laugh
And when you finally crash, you wouldn't know death if it took your child

You crack an evil smile
Moving on

I wish I knew me before
I wish I had a chance to change
But if things end up that way
It might not be the same
And I will never be unchained
