Track Name: Fuck Ups
All my friends are fuck ups, dropouts and addicts
We look like hell, we smell like shit and you might call us sadists
And I'm sure that we'd agree
But the last thing that we want is your sympathy.

And I know, I know that you won't show
If you ever bothered to make any plans at all.

All my friends they talk about solidarity,
All my friends are full of shit, they have no clue what it means.
To support some one
lkjdisfkwoielrkjelk

And I know, I know that you won't show
If you ever bothered to make any plans at all.

Chords: C G Am F
Track Name: Speed City
I wasn't born in a small town
But I hate these city lights
On the ground littered with concrete
These cars are such a blight.

The sky grows grey
Filled up with smog
Fight through the crowd,
Cigarette fog.

Oh, I'm growing sick,
Sick and I'm broken.
Can't scream no more because I am choking
Oh, I'm growing sick

I'm sick of this city
It's eating me alive
Sick of men in business clothes
They rush to be on time

Suburban families with pretty houses
Are always such a mess
A flat-screen and a trophy wife
A real picture of success

It's time to quit my shit job
Cooking for the bourgeoisie
Instead I'll feed my wanderlust
And live my god damn dreams

Oh, I'm growing sick,
Sick and I'm broken.
Can't scream no more because I am choking
Oh, I'm growing sick

Chords: Verse: Am C Chorus: C G Am C G C F
Track Name: New Town
There's a new town, calling my name
A hundred horizons away
And my feet carve ditches in the ground
This city'll always find a way to drag me down

And the open road, is waiting to break my heart
Picking at my seams until I fall apart
And my insides litter the ground
I'll pull myself together somehow

Ohhhhhhhh
I ain't coming back

My brittle bones, they break every day
They hide the truth, but it's plain on their face
I spent years seeking, now I've finally found
A hole of my own, with the worms underground

Ohhhhhhhh
I ain't coming back

Chords: (capo 2) (verse) Em, D, Em (chorus) G, Em, D, Em
Track Name: Restless
Restless am I, when I'm home
Restless am I, lest I'm on the road

I can't stand to spend another night laying in my bed
I've got to find another place to rest my weary head
I've got skeletons in my closet that i hope to lay to rest
So I set out on the open road to find out where it led

The road and the trees, how they beckon me
Am I running towards or away from something

Restless am I, when I'm home
Restless am I, lest I'm on the road

It was minus five and nine PM with not a single car in sight
So I slept beneath an overpass to keep warm till morning light
It was there I found what I was looking for with just my banjo by my side
I found what I was looking for, a part of me that died

Restless am I, when I'm home
Restless am I, lest I'm on the road

The road and the trees, how they comfort me
Am I running towards or away from something

Chords: (chorus) Am, F, Am, C, G (verse) C, Am, F, C, Am, F, G (bridge) Am G Am F G
Track Name: Vermin Underground
There is something going down In the under ground
the mice and the moles whisper in gopher holes
about the fat rat king and his corn cob crown
winter was cold, springs seeds were sown

The silos are empty
our stomachs are empty

The year has been hard
the summers been dry
the seeds didn't yield
and no ones wondering why

The silos are empty
our stomachs are empty

There is something going down in the underground
The mice and the moles whisper in gopher holes
about the fat rat king and his corncob crown
Winter was cold, spring's seeds were sown

The silos are empty
Our stomachs are empty

There was a flood,
The fat rat king drowned
The vermin rejoiced
in the underground

The silos are empty
Our stomachs are empty

Chords: (verse) Am C (chorus) C G Am (bridge) Am C Am Em
Track Name: Two Frames
Society's rejects, we've been cast aside
I've finally found my family, I wear my cut with pride
This patch on my back is so much more than that
This is my family, my filthy wolf pack

Unnecessary and redundant
Tedious and boring
What's the point of shooting
If you've never scoring?

Society's rejects, we've been cast aside
I've finally found my family, I wear my cut with pride
This patch on my back is so much more than that
This is my family, my filthy wolf pack

I like riding and building
Bikes with my sisters and brothers
Take one frame and weld it
On top of another

Society's rejects, we've been cast aside
I've finally found my family, I wear my cut with pride
This patch on my back is so much more than that
This is my family, my filthy wolf pack

Chords: Chorus: C F C G Verse: C F
Track Name: My Punk
My punk's better than your punk
My grind is harder than yours
I listened to Black Flag before him
I've got more patches than her

Cuz I'm so much more punk than you,
I'm so much more hardcore
I'm so fucking punk that I'll
Pass out on your floor

I've hopped more trains than you,
I've been to a million shows
I've beat up every riot cop
And snorted all the coke

Cuz I'm so much more punk than you,
I'm so much more hardcore
I'm so fucking punk that I'll
Pass out on your floor

I've got a dog, his name is Shithead
And he's more punk than you
He hates going in the bath
And he steals all his food

Cuz he's so much more punk than you,
He's so much more hardcore
He's so fucking punk that he
Started the class war

Chords: C Am F G
Track Name: Recovery Song
I keep my eyes on the horizon
Things'll be different one day
I've got me a goal to keep my eyes on
I keep my demons at bay

I can tell that things are getting better
They can only get better from here
Things may not be perfect
But they're better than they've been the last few years

I've done a lot of growing
But I've not grown up
I made me some friends along the way
My mind's confined to a mattress on my floor
I keep my demons at bay

I keep my eyes on the horizon
Things'll be different one day
I've got me a goal to keep my eyes on
I keep my demons at bay

Chords (Capo 2): Chorus: G Am C G D C Verse: G Am C Outtro: G Am C G F C
Track Name: Patches to Patches
Patches to patches
And crust to crust
I never met a cop that I could trust

I wake up at noon and ride my bike to work
I feel like shit cuz my boss is a dick
I'm more scared of staying the same
Than I've ever been of change
And I've lost more friends that way

Patches to patches
And crust to crust
I never met a cop that I could trust
They're pushing us back and they won't ever stop
Fuck the cops, yeah fuck the cops

I promise I'm not gonna run away this time
And not just cuz I've got nowhere left, left to hide
My feet are getting so fucking tired

Patches to patches
And crust to crust
I never met a cop that I could trust
They're building a prison outside of this town
Burn it down, yeah burn it down

Chords: D A Bm G
Track Name: One of These Days
Chords (Capo 2): Intro: Dm Am C Verse: G Am G D7 G Am D7 G
Track Name: Here We Grow
Let's go together, we can brave any storm
Here we grow, here we grow, here we grow x2

I met a girl last year, we rode bikes at night
And talked about how someday we might
Run away, run away, run away

It's a strange time of year, my friends are leaving town
The new rat kind mayor dons his new rat king crown
Fuck this town, fuck this town, fuck this town

Chorus (Capo 1): F C G Am
