Track Name: Karma (Drag Me Down)
First girl that I love, was a long time ago
I asked her if her love was true, but she always told me no
So she turned her back on me, there was one thing that I learned
You can't give your heart to someone, without having theirs in return

I got Karma backing me up & a bottle to drag me down

I've never been a violent man, but you know I've seen my share
seen the people beaten, robbed & stabed, in a world that doesn't care
My only wish, is that they could see, that a couple of kind words
would sometimes solve their problem, without anybody ever being hurt

I got Karma backing me up & a bottle to drag me down

Sometimes man this crazy world, can cause a man to drink
but when I sip my whiskey, baby, it give me time to think
I never beat nobody down, you know I plan to keep it that way
ya gotta' do unto others as you'd have 'em do, thats the way its gotta be

I got Karama backing me & a bottle dragin me down
Track Name: Don't Go
I love you, Don't go
You hate me for my soul
well I know I left you cryin, girl you need to see I'm tryin
I love you please don't go

Well this world now, is oh so cruel
my body's feeling old
it keeps taking all my time,
so I'm trying not to waste mine
please let me keep my cool

I love you, Don't go
you hate me for my soul
girl I know I left you cryin, I'm decetin, cheatin, lyin
I love you please don't go

Times are tough now & talk is cheap
actions speak louder than words
well girl your so demandin
and I'm tryin to be understandin
seems like we never agree

I love you, Don't go
you hate me for my soul
girl I know I left you cryin, girl you need to see I'm tryin
I love you please don't go

Even after all these years
way down that winding road
you know there comes a time
when man must decide
what will save his soul
Track Name: Warden
Tie me up & beat me, throw me to the dogs
I've been in the prision now for 20 years too long
I try to go, but they just pull me back
I've got these chains around my body & The warden up on my back

Been layin at the bottom, this dirty old cell block
tryin every number on this combination lock
They say "let's Go, MOVE OUT", work on the railroad track
I've got a rope around my throat & the warden won't cut me slack

Been workin on the railroads, 18 hours a day
see that big fat warden & these are the words he say
He say's "come on, put your back into it son"
But I can't get no rest, I'll never see the risin' sun

Well I broke out from that prison, finally I'm free
drivin' down the highway & lord what do I see
Cops all around, they close in from all sides
And that warden he is laughin, as a tear rolls from my eye
Track Name: Proles
Seen a brother stand on another fallen man
yeah, you've heard it all befor
another fallen man, reached out to grab his hand
both lay bludgeond on the floor
well some men sink or swim & others cheat to win
to just gain a little more
I mean not to offend, but I cannot comprehend
is this a rat race or a war

Feeding on the poor
reachin out for more
penny earned is a dollar spent
slowly we descend..... 3,4!

Greed is all we need to feed the war economys
and fill their heaping plates
always wanting more, their crumbs fall to the floor
just to save the welfare state
we survive means to succeed & Compasion cost a fee
humanitys at stake
we are not who we are, up the ladder, climed to far
just to make the next tax break

Feedin on the poor
reachin out for more
penny earned is a dollar spent
bleedin every cent.... 3,4!

We don't need economies
don't need no profit margin, they're a disease
don't need no fortune 500
I think those bastards should be hunted down
we are the proles, our strength is our numbers
destroy society, while they slumber
we will use technology
I'm crying out for my people to be free

Turn on my TV, see the lies they're tellin me
just to pay now, buy, consume
If this is where we are, then man hasn't got to far
will evolution please resume
Go to work everyday, for next to nothing pay
will someone tell me what's the use
Cause I'm not made of stone, man can't live on greed alone
I'm just searchin for some truth

Feeding on the poor
reachin out for more
penny earned is a dollar spent
slowly we descend
Track Name: System Crash
System crash, you know it will attack
no one will be prepared for the system crash
so when it comes, man, what you gonna' do

Silence broke by sudden noise
snap awake, round up the boys
fiends & ghouls, an undead horede
are piling up, outside your door
let's pack the bags up, make this quick
where did I leave the hachet
Fire distracts them, cold spring night
back door escape by the full moon light
Now Every day it's getting harder
Every night I pray, dear father
Every day its getting harder, harder, harder....

System crash, you know it will attack
no one will be prepared for the system crash
so when it comes, man, what you gonna' do

Never sleeping & never wake
no remorse for the lives they take
Just cravings & unending hunger
with every victim they grow strong
when have you ever had to fend for food
or ever need a single thing that you use
this end could be a new begining
in the land of the dead we are forced to start living

System crash, you know it will attack
no one will be prepared for the system crash
so when it comes, man, what you gonna' do
Track Name: Pizza Girl
well I like to order pizza every once in awhile
what i like more than that is when I get to see you smile
girl, there'll be a big tip for ya, if you spend the night with me

My pizza girl
yeah, yeah, yeah

Your such a sweet thing, girl I like the way that you move
ya make me wish that my attempt to get you wasn't soo crude
you turn me wild inside, so what's a man to do

My pizza girl
yeah, yeah, yeah

I was hungry so I ordered pepperoni & cheese
instead of you they sent me some kid with a facial disease
I call the place, they said you quite, as sad as it is
I guess some things arn't ment to be

My Pizza girl
yeah, yeah, yeah
Track Name: Count Your Coins
Hey Fella, what you gonna' do
when you got no money & you got no food
you got a credit card debt, over your head
you scrapin up cash just to pay your rent
ya' better go start searching your couch, so you can count your coins

Start contin' your coins
your funds are going down

Funds be drainin' quick, there's no reason, there's no rhyme
I been doin' this for years, can bairly profit up a dime
some say, "now Jonny, give it up. lyrically, your past your prime"
I tell 'em "Money ain't the reason, this is how I spend my time"
so let them million dollar rockers come on, it's time to count your coin

start countin' your coins
your funds are goin down

It's an every day struggle in these tough ass times
you gotta' choose between booze & savin your dimes
you can't take a girl out, on the town
everybody's got the feel, now, it's goin around
ya' better empty out that jar & start countin\ your coins

start countin' your coins
your funds are goin down
Track Name: Bad Reaction
see a man in the shadows, yeah, with an eye & a lust for money

you know he's bound to cause a bad reaction

Bad Reaction

Bad Reaction
Goin underground

since he was just a young, young boy
cast aside by society
you know he's the product of a bad reaction

Bad Reaction
