Track Name: Start!
They're ain't no freedom, and you're never gonna find it
They're ain't no justice so just stop trying
The only thing you're gonna find in your pockets, is
ecocide, genocide, suicide...my oh my!

They're ain't no limits, so you better start growing man
They're ain't no nothing you can't learn, so start showing
You want to change your life, you want to know how?
Start screaming, start shouting, start starting, start now!
Track Name: The Trent River
I went down to the river to collect me a bucket of water
But all I pulled up was a bucket of benzene and used condoms

All up on along the Trent
The things we've done we will regret
But apathy has far from left
All up on along the Trent

I went down to the river to collect me a bucket of fodder
Cause I won't swim in it, shit man I won't even swallow it

All up on along the Trent
The things we've down we will regret
But apathy has far from left
All up on along the Trent

Pollution. Pollution. The solution? A revolution!

All up on along the Trent
The people here don't give a shit
You can shit, piss, fuck, pollute in it
All up on along the Trent
Track Name: Dance
Girl you got something that I want
you know it, you got it
You might as well take my hand, tonight we'll flaunt it
We're gonna sweat, and bump, and grind
You got no chance so you might as well just dance!

Dance!

Is there something wrong with this?
Am I misogynist?
Girl you are so fine I just want to taste your lips.
But I'm a realist, I have a real lisp.
I have no chance so I might as well just Dance.

Dance!

There's something in the air tonight, I know.
Track Name: A Day in the Life of Everyone
The morning breaks
I open my eyes
The sun rays shatter my window pane
Alone in my head
Awaiting the constant noise that comes from day to day
Is this true?
Is this what we are?
Do you even know you're alive?
Is this your life? What do you do? Is this what you were born for?

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Look to the sky it seems the sun is out
It's gonna be a bright bright...

I fear myself
I'm losing grip
I'm slipping through my own fingers
What did I accomplish today?
Or is that the right question I'm asking?
No more noise
It's time to rest
and yet is this what I was born for?
Awakening. Unconsciousness.
Is this what I was born for?

I can see nothing now, my eyes are closed
Nothing but all obstacles in my way
Look to the sky it seems the sun has died
It's gonna be a dark day in my grave. Mom.
Track Name: A Man Must Die Alone
A man must die alone
Squeezing blood and piss from stone
A tangled plan from math
Used angles and stats and facts
Its cold out there, you see?
No light to guide or lead

No God, no truth, no knowledge
Just black and space...forgotten

No God, not truth no knowledge
Just black and space...forgotten
Alone, misplaced, and rotting
Below the grade...forgotten.
Track Name: Martyryr
They feed you, you swallow
You're tuned to breed and follow
Their power over you
Keeps sheep penned in the church pew

Close your eyes and kneel
It's ok now you are healed

You're living
You're sinning
Give us a new beginning
Get in line
Open your mouth and squeeze all the rest out.

Close your mind believe it's all true
But you can't see me

Dogma in your eyes
Truth confiscated churning out the lies

They lead you
You follow
You close your eyes and swallow
The lies that mislead you
Did any ever feel true?

Close your mind believe
Is it right that I can't be me?

Their symbols, your fashion
Remembering the Passion
Overcome by the news "There's room in heaven (hell) for you!"

It's a joy you'll see
Believe! Believe! Believe! Believe!

Dogma in your eyes
Truth confiscated churning out the lies

It's all that I can do
To keep from Martyring you!
You prattle on and on, over that same old Psalm
Can you please just spare us a break, not just for us but also for God's sake!
Keep your thoughts and beliefs to yourself, as for the rest of us we're going to hell!

We're going to hell!

Dogma in your eyes
Truth confiscated churning out the lies
Track Name: The Scene
You got your band, and we got ours
You got your fans, and we got more
You're not a man, you're just a boy

We are The Dead Sparrows
