Track Name: Call of the Road
CALL OF THE ROAD

TO ALL OF THE BANDS WHO PLAY WITH ALL HEART
THERE'S NO REASON WHY THEY PLAY THEIR PART
WITH A BURNING SPIRIT AN ENDLESS PRIDE WE HEAR YOUR WORDS
THAT IS WHY MY FRIENDS WE STRUM THESE CHORDS

IT'S THE CALL OF THE ROAD
ANOTHER GIG ANOTHER TOWN
THROUGH RAIN SLEET AND SNOW WE WILL BE ABOUND
IT'S THE CALL OF THE SHOW
ANOTHER STAGE ANOTHER CROWD
THROUGH BLOOD, SWEAT, N TEARS WE WILL BE ABOUND

TO ALL OF THE FANS AND THE TIRELESS SUPPORT
HITTING THE STREETS AND SPREAD OUT THE WORD
THERE'S NO DENYING IT THERE IS A NAME ON YOUR SHIRT
THAT IS WHY MY FRIENDS WE STRUM THESE CHORDS

IT’S MORE THAN ENTERTAINMENT ITS THE URGE TO HIT THE STAGE
IT’S MORE THAT SHOWMANSHIP BUT TO LET OUT THE RAGE
WE COMMEND YOUR DEDICATION THAT YOU SING YOUR SCORE
THAT IS WHY MY FRIENDS WE STRUM THESE CHORDS
Track Name: High Society
MS. HIGH SOCIETY

SO YOU GOT THE WORLDS ATTENTION AND YOU HIT THE TABLOIT NEWS
THE EYES OF THE PAPARAZZI HAVE THEIR SITES RIGHT ON YOU
YOU'RE THE LATEST TREND SPOILED TO NO END
FAME HAS GOTTEN TO YOUR HEAD
SITTING HIGH ON YOUR FANTASY PEDESTAL
YOU'RE BETTER OFF DEAD

MISS HIGH SOCIETY, MISS CELEBRITY
A WAY TO DISGRACE OUR NAME! THE AMERICAN NAME
RECKLESS IDOL, INSECURITY
A WAY TO KILL OUR NAME! THE AMERICAN NAME

WITH DRUGS AND ALCOHOL YOU MAKE YOU SELF A MOCKERY
THEY SHOULD SHIP TO BOOT CAMP OR THROW YOU OUT ON THE STREETS MAKE YOU FACE REALITY
WHO SAID YOU WERE ABOVE THE LAW
WHO SAID THAT YOU CAN GET AWAY
THEY SHOULD KILL YOUR VANITY AND THE LACK OF SOBRIETY

THIS IS NOT A TRUE REPRESENTATION OF THE AMERICAN WAY
A MESSAGE TO THE REST OF THE WORLD THIS ISN'T OUR CLAIM
OUR NATION WILL NOT CONDONE FOR THEIR SELF ADMIRATION
THE ANSWER IS TO END THE CHARADE AND KILL THEIR VAIN!
Track Name: Have a nice Day
HAVE A NICE DAY

I WAS SITTING AT THE END OF THE BAR
WHEN AN ELDER FELLOW CAME FROM A FAR
AND HE NOTICED MY FACE WAS FULL OF PAIN
HE SAID HE HAD ENOUGH OF MY COMPLAINTS
GETTING TO THE POINT OF SLAPPING YOUR FACE
SO I CAN KILL YOUR PETY BANE
AND HE SAID SON! HE SAID!

DO ME A FAVOR WHY DON'T YOU GET YOUR LIFE TOGETHER SO HEY MY FRIEND HAVE A NICE DAY
DO ME A FAVOR WHY DON'T YOU GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER SO HEY MY FRIEND HAVE A NICE DAY

HERE'S THE DEAL THAT'S WHERE HE LED
LIFE'S NOT EASY AND NO ONE GIVE A DAMN
GREED AND HATE DICTATE YOUR LIFE
THE ONLY ANSWER IS TO TURN IT AROUND
TAKE YOUR PROBLEMS PUT THEM DOWN
TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR CONSTANT STRIFE

HE SAID IT IS TIME TO FACE A HEARTLESS WORLD
STRENGHT COMES FROM WITHIN CHANGE IT MY FRIEND
NO MORE EXCUSES WHY YOUR LIFE HAS GONE AWRY
COME BACK TO REALITY MY FRIEND AND HE SAID SON!
Track Name: I didn't vote for Them
I DIDN'T VOTE FOR THEM

CONSTANT CORRUPTION LIES AND DECEIT
ONE PERCENT OF THE BIGOTS AND CHEATS
THEY ARE THE SCAR OF THE ENTIRE NATION
WE ARE TAXED WITHOUT REPRESENTATION

I DIDN'T VOTE FOR
I DIDN'T VOTE FOR
I DIDN'T VOTE FOR
THEM
I DIDN'T VOTE FOR
I DIDN'T VOTE FOR
I DIDN'T VOTE FOR
THEM
VOTE FOR THEM!!

LOBBYIST, JUDGES AND ALL THE LAWMAKERS
THEY'RE THE SCUM OF DECISION MAKERS
COLLUSIONIST KILLERS OF THE MIDDLE CLASS
GREEDY POLITICIANS DISCONNECTED FROM THE REST
Track Name: The Rise
THE RISE

THIS MESSAGE IS FOR THE 1 PERCENT FOR THE GOVERNMENT AND WHITE COLLAR CRIMINAL
OUR OPPRESSION HAS GOTTEN TOO FAR
THIS IS OUR PROMISE THAT ONE DAY YOU WILL FALL

WE'RE GOING TO STRIKE WE'RE GOING TO FIGHT CAUSE WE WILL BE UNITED
WE'RE GOING TO RISE WE'RE GOING TO STAND
CAUSE WE WILL BE UNITED

IT'S JUST ANOTHER DAY THAT NOTHING HAS CHANGED
ONCE AGAIN GREED IS KILLING OUR WAYS
HEY POLICY MAKERS AND ALL THE UPPER CLASS
DO YOU HEAR OUR THREAT CAUSE WE ARE COMING YOUR WAY

WE'RE GOING TO STRIKE WE'RE GOING TO FIGHT WE'RE GOING TO RISE CAUSE WE ARE UNITED
Track Name: Alright
ALRIGHT

SOMEDAYS IT FEELS LIKE I’M GOING NOWHERE
I STRUGGLE ON TO NO AVAIL
IT’S EASIER TO FAIL THAN TO ACHIEVE
SOMETIMES IT’S HARD TO GET IT STRAIGHT
RUNNING DOWN THAT DEAD END STREET
I HAVE HOPE I HAVE STRENGHT AND I BELIEVE

I GOT MY BACK AGAINST THE WALL
I FIGHT AGAINST THE WORLD
BUT THAT’S OK! CAUSE I’M GOING TO BE ALRIGHT

DEATH, TAXES, AND UTILITIES
SOMETHINGS OUT THERE TO GET MY SANITY
A CURSE OF THE MODERN WORLD WITH NO END
I’M CONSUMED WITH CONSTANT RAGE
THERE’S A MONKEY ON MY BACK
THAT’S WHEN I KEEP ON FIGHTING I TRY AGAIN

THERE IS NO SURRENDER I WILL NOT GIVE IN
MY PRIDE WILL NOT FAIL I WILL SEE IT THROUGH THE END
I’M NOT ALONE WE’RE NOT ALONE
CAUSE I HAVE FAMILY AND BROTHERS TO THE END
Track Name: Blue Collar Cry
BLUE COLLAR CRY

OLE’ OLE FOR THE BLUE COLLAR CREW THIS IS OUR WORKING CLASS CRY.
SO WE HUSTLE AND TOIL AND BURN THE MIDNIGHT OIL CHASE DOWN OUR SORROWS WITH RYE

DRINK UP MY FRIENDS THIS ONE IS FOR YOU.
THE DAY IS THROUGH SO LETS REJOICE WITH A BREW
SO BRING OUT THE GOOD TIMES, THE STORIES AND MEMORIES AND WE TREASURE THE MOMENTS WITH OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY

WE GATHER TOGETHER TO PRAISE ALL OUR GAINS TO RID OUR PITFALLS AND BURY OUR PAINS.
SO LET’S GET TOGETHER AND MAKE UP FOR MISSED TIMES AS WE CHEER WITH JOY AND HOLLER OUT THIS RHYME.

THROUGH GOOD TIMES AND BAD TIMES WE’LL STICK TO THE END WITH A BROTHERHOOD THAT WILL NEVER DIVIDE.
SO WE’LL RAISE OUR GLASSES AND CHEER THE NIGHT AWAY TO A PARTY THAT WILL NEVER DIE.
SO COME ON ALL PATRONS WITH BEER AND TRUE FRIENDS TOGETHER WE’LL SEIZE THE NIGHT.
LET’S DRINK TO GOOD FORTUNE AND PUKE THE NIGHT AWAY AND GIVE EVERY STRUGGLE A GOOD FIGHT.
