Track Name: MIA
Yes, I'm alright
No, I'm not lonely
Because the voice inside my head
Is never alone
Oh I know you'd like
To get a piece of the action
But wait for me I swear it goes by fast
You know this is how it is baby
But this is my dream
So I need to try
I know you need me
And it drives you crazy
But I need to know
That you're by my side
Mia!
I'd rather be dead
Than to know they'd ever list you M.I.A
Mia!
I'd rather be dead
Than out here missing you
Find out they've listed you
M.I.A
Track Name: Connect
Stories ripped from the memory
Of such a sad and lonely kid
On the playground with no friends
Where his classmates
Would tease and abuse him

Sorrow his only companion
Always wishing he were dead
He craved a bullet to head

He made a plan
(I will punish everyone)
With a gun in his hand
(Take you all out one by one)
The smell of carbon
(Laughing as I watch you bleed)
Let me hear you scream
And beg for mercy

Local headlines
Read "A Natural Born Killer"
They blamed the guns
And his parents lack of structure
Never acknowledging the truth
Or how a battered dog
Will turn on you

Karmic events
Are set in motion
When ones intent
Creates an action
There's consequence
And repercussions
Ripple effects
And chain reactions
A chain-link fence
Web of connections
Those who torment
Must seek compassion
Oh, there will come a day
We're all dust eventually

I wanna see a world
Where we strive to understand
Those we torment or condemn

My dear denizens
Please try to comprehend
The hate you breed
Will lead to our destruction
Track Name: Here's to Eternity
I love the fast life, for that I'm not ashamed. Abe Drinkin' is my name and I'm emerging from the flames
Of a punk rock band, Who couldn't Carry-On. I used to sing sad songs.Now I'm laughing to the bank
Folks would never label me as tame. Most nights you'll find me at Foobar drinking with my friends or playing rock n roll
And I'm the black sheep of my family. A badge I wear proudly. A badge I wear proudly.
If it's true the good die young. That won't apply to me. No I will live forever, go down in history
As the man who lived his life, as if it were one long party.I'll stick around. As long as the drinks are free
Here's to eternity
And if it's true the good die young. That won't apply to me. No, I will live forever, Leave my mark on history
So tell the devil I'll be late and not to wait on me. I'll stick around. Because my life's a breeze
Here's to eternity
Track Name: Downtown
Gonna go downtown. Gonna get fucked up. Gonna see what's up. Maybe listen to punks
Cause all my friends are punks and they know what's up. They wanna go get drunk. They wanna get fucked up
They say I'm crazy. Sometimes think I'm lazy. They say I'm blind. I need to work full-time
But I might lose it. If I'm not playing music and touring all the time. I might lose my mind
What happen to the days when. We used to run the streets. When we always had drinks and songs to play
Now we find ourselves jaded. We more carefree. We were never blasé'. Now we're old and grey
Well now we're lazy. People think we're crazy. Like it's a crime. To tour all the time
But we might lose it. If we're not playing music and touring all the time. We might lose our minds
Gonna go downtown. Gonna see what's up. Gonna play punk rock. Gonna go get fucked
But I might lose it. If I'm not playing music and touring all the time. I might lose my mind
Track Name: No Matter What
Once I've made a decision, Once I have my mind set. No matter what they say, no one's stopping me
As long as you live in our home, you'll do as we say. There are consequences and rules to obey
You can walk away, from the plans we've made for you when you turn eighteen
Your pipe dream, will never pay. But I believed, now look at me
Oh ahhh! No matter what you say. No matter what you do you won't stop me
Oh ahhh! I'm living life my way. No matter what you do or say, I can't be swayed, you won't stop me
They'd say you won't amount to much, If you go out on your own. They refused to help and I was all alone
I won't lie or say there weren't times when I thought of giving up
My pipe dream, still remains. I believed. Now look at me
Oh ahhh! No matter what you say. No matter what you do you won't stop me
Oh ahhh! I'm living life my way. No matter what you do or say, I cant be swayed, you won't stop me
I've always chosen a road less taken, not knowing where is goes
Strong against the current as it flowed. This is my sworn oath. I'm never going home
Oh ahhh! No matter what you say. No matter what you do, you won't stop me
Oh ahhh! I'm living life my way. My pipe dream, still remains. I believed. Now look me
