Track Name: Long Way
It’s a long way to Justice, You can stand all through the night
You can stand until 1st light
Holding back with all your might

They build bridges over poison, They Bury it one mans length deep
You can drink up their hollow promises
Maybe even Obey them in your sleep


Why avoid the deepest waters, Build a resistance to its undertow
We’re the strongest of currents, we will drown them all.

I say we flood the courtrooms, I say we drown Wall Street.
With all the water they have tainted unfit to drink

Can they battle through the Deluge, Can they muster up the ranks. Their ship is sinking swiftly The people stand safely on the banks.
Track Name: Car of Your Dreams
Ride in the car of your dreams Down Park place avenue you wont believe the the extremes
From the Richest of the Rich too those with the fewest of means
Again And again all over the world
Not much change here in London town with the people living low in the slums abound
With no money in Their pocket or food in Their mouth
Again and again all over the world

Can you wait for the sweet day to come Grab and you can have it and no need to run
Dancing like a fool who me Yes YOU!

Ok help me now with a trip too Mumbai or a trip to Cairo No matter where you go there are thousands on the street
Again, again all over the world
When you start to see the shape of things So many at the bottom and the few living their dreams, does it make much sense well not to me
Again and again all over the world

Can you wait for the sweet day to come Grab and you can have it and no need to run
Dancing like a fool who me Yes YOU!


Me and you are jumping in this car roving near and far
Living out our dream
The Birds will be singing in the trees as we drive on by with ease
Living in the car of our dreams

Now If you can believe that Instead of squatting on the streets you’ll be wearing your top in a Hat Fat cat Mansion pad
Again, again all over the world

Believe your dreams and the things to come Billionaires can have the slums yes the haves will have not
Track Name: Chasing The Moon
I’ve gone over the moon
Confusion is my view daily
I’m blurring the lines
Cannot see what’s ahead
Distortions, obfuscating
My communication

What am I to say to the madness?
Now that you’ve come to accept the state of it all

The sharp hues blister and pop
Celluloid Flying by at 25 frames per second
Downright like the daily news not worth the views and not to be trusted

What am I to say to the madness?
Now that you’ve come to accept the state of it all
What am I to say to the madness?
Now that you’ve come to accept the state of it all
What am I to say to the madness?
Now that you’ve come to accept the state of it all
Track Name: Mountain Home
High Up on the Ridge
Removing Mountain Tops
The Coal is burning holes
In the lands you’ve known

Breathing out of breath
Not a tree to lean upon
The Clear-cut’s tell the tale
In the land you’ve known

Is our destiny to level the forests?
To fill the skies with pollution

Eye’s open wide with Nary a sight you or I’d be proud of

Would you drink from this stream?

Would you eat the bounty from this ground?
Do you know the story of these woods?
For your words, expression and actions tell me no.

With their eyes on the prize
And ruthless empty souls, empty
Is it profit we praise
Above all

Is our destiny to level the forests?
To fill the skies with pollution

Eye’s open wide with Nary a sight you or I’d be proud of
Track Name: Peaceful Protest No More
Caught Between meting out the justice of the streets and Peaceful petitioning
Overwhelmed from year to year while one thing rings clear the wealthy have no fear for a day of reckoning
Everyone is for sale, name your price and someone will rise too meet it
The vote’s a sham, your voice carries no weight and at the bottom of every 10,000-dollar plate is a politician with no soul who will be bought and sold

Overwhelm and Inundate Peaceful protest will not effect the proper change and the hour has grown too late, Peaceful Protest will not effect the proper change


Please tell me how we’re not asleep at the wheel? How can we deny we’re not complicit?
Make a fist and drive it home you will find you’re not alone we were just waiting for one among us to rise

Overwhelm and Inundate Peaceful protest will not effect the proper change and the hour has grown too late, Peaceful Protest will not effect the proper change


Rally now, make a stand, climb the walls with our victory at hand
With no better time in history to be present

Overwhelm and Inundate Peaceful protest will not effect the proper change and the hour has grown too late, Peaceful Protest will not effect the proper change
Track Name: Koch Bros Pie
We’re all starving on Koch Brothers Pie
Got the Best Democracy Money can buy

Egg Shells To the left, Egg whites to the right
Stoking up the union to thrash their appetites

Can you get yourself a seat at the table? Cut yourself a slice
All that’s left is crumbs, barely keep a family alive

We’re baking in the sun while they’re cooling in the shade
We’re going broke; they’re raking in the pay

They’re dancing on our throats; they’ll even try to segregate
A slave’s day’s works for a wage slaves wage


We’ve overfed the tyrants; we put the dinner on their plates. Gathering up the crumbs, Barely Keep a Family alive

We’ve overfed the tyrants; we put the dinner on their plates. Gathering up the crumbs, Barely keep a family alive!
Track Name: Nothing Nowhere
Instrumental
Track Name: No Gods No Masters
Sew patches On Your Liver, Bathe in Cherry Red
Load your muskets with the Powder of the Chili Pepper Damned
Steaming for the Junkyard Etching symbols on the Wall
Raise the Prickled hairs and your skin stomps to a Crawl To a Crawl To a crawl To Crawl To Crawl To A crawl.

You gotta Churchyard full of Devils you gonna burn the Still house down
Your minds a leaky Faucet and Darwin wears the crown
With the Murder in your eyes and the blood on your head
Snatch the preacher from the pulpit and Darwin wears the Crown….

Here let me tell you something nobody’s behind the wheel.
Speak for yourself Claw hammer, Drive them nails up to the hilt.

Decadence is where this party sways
Close your eyes you wont ever have to pay
Put them Royals heads out on Display, Better put them Royals heads out on Display
Track Name: Leaving
Oh they’re leaving Portland, They’re leaving Boston.
There’s no hope for New York City, Did you ever think they could.

Rip out the art like a sidewalk and leave a bleeding neighborhood.

They’re gonna make a last stand in Austin, at the city limit.
You’ll lose your heart in San Francisco to the bridge and tunnel clone.

They gut these cities with their entitlement
And push the art back underground
Selling out Good art for bad money
And push the art back overground

Have your picture taken here were the legends once played
Stand beside a life sized Statue of music history
A faded autograph maybe a poster is all there's left to see, all there's left to see!
Now come down here to Pikes place market, can you please the tourists?
Don’t even bother with Los Angeles if you cant stomach the Formula.
They’ve Ripped out the art Like a sidewalk and left us Bleeding Neighborhood
Track Name: Finding New Homes For the Wealthy
I’ll choose my words carefully, find you a home on a park bench by the sea

sea gulls gather overhead, spend the night with the stars and rats

How about a room with a view, maybe something overlooking a landfill

Gag, while you’re breathing in the air, sparking every urge to tear the fabric of this sour affair, brace yourself my dear.

Sleep by the tree, never alone with a freeway echoing, clouds above clouds within the clouds are surrounding.

Damp to the Bone, spend your days under the overpass on your own, the voices within come to be, come to breath down your neck.

Pack your bags for the time of your life, cause you can’t take it with you when you die

6 feet to the swaying grass above, sleeping with the only thing you love, greener than a seasick passenger
we wont miss you here….
