Track Name: Zombies Ate My Neighbors!
Here they come
It's a mauling

We're running blind. We've lost our minds
This is a christening
The rule of emperors who've risen from the grave
This wound is deep. She'll never heal.
We stood & fought, we tried, but still
No one can ever stave the terror of the dead

Be quiet. They'll hear your heartbeat.
One bite, no life, that's the way that it goes
Be quiet. They'll hear your heartbeat
One bite, no life, feel your soul slip away
My God it must be tough, living out your life from the grave
My God it must be tough, living out your life from the grave

Now these are the times
It's a calling to arms. Stand and fight for the right to live
These are the times
I might die today but I'm taking you with me, bitch

I saw them. They're coming by the thousands
There's no soul in their eyes
Here they come
Here they come
I saw them. They're coming by the thousands
There's no soul in their eyes
Track Name: ManStank
Bounce

Now baby girl, can you riddle me this?
You said your eyes were only, eyes were only
For me, for mine
But it seems that story was just another pretty lie
Now I'm left, thinking here to myself
This is what my gut has told me, gut has told me
You're a Jezebel, you wear it well
With a face so cute, eyes full of hell

And I can't sleep at night with you
Running 'round those city streets
Heading right to those bedroom sheets

I tried to separate myself from the world
That made me this way
I'll see what we can become in a world
That made me this way

"Baby, why don't you believe in me?"
"Why you don't you believe in me?"

See what this is, and what this has to be
Aren't the words that you're wanting to hear
I let you in, you let me down
So don't you cry when you look and I'm not around
See what this is, and what this has to be
Aren't the words that you're wanting to hear
I let you in, you let me down
So don't you cry when you look up and I'm not around
So don't you cry when you look up and I'm nowhere to be found

I tried to separate myself from the world
That made me this way
I'll see what we can become in a world
That made me this way

These are the paths we choose. These are the lives we lead
These are the secrets that we keep
These are the paths we choose. These are the lives we lead
These are the secrets that we keep

And I can't sleep at night with you
Running 'round in those city streets
Being chased right back to those bedroom sheets
And I can't sleep at night with you
Running 'round in those city streets
Being chased right back to his bedroom
Right back into his bedroom, his bedroom
Killing me softly with every word

Killing me now

Now baby girl, can you riddle me this?
You said your eyes were only, eyes were only
For me, for mine
But it seems that story was just another pretty lie
And now I'm left, thinking here to myself
This is what my gut has told me, gut has told me
You're a Jezebel, you wear it well
With a face so cute, eyes full of hell

And I can't sleep at night with you
Running 'round those city streets
Heading right to those bedroom sheets

I tried to separate myself from the world
That made me this way
I'll see what we can become in a world
That made me this way

That made me this way (x4)

"Baby, why don't you believe in me?"
"Why you don't you believe in me?"
Track Name: It's All In Good Fun
Enough

When it all comes down, crashing around
Can you look at the stars and tell me?
Is this really the way, that you wanted to say
How you wanted this thing to be?
When it all comes down
Tell me will you wonder, will you ponder how you lost the way?
When it all comes down
Tell me will you think and will you say

As the fire slowly dies so will the passion
Of everything that we have ever loved (what we stood for)
And all I ask of you is to remember the night where you walked away (the night you walked away)
Do you remember when I swept you off your feet

Do you recall the promise you made to me
I still dream about the day
You shut the door on everything we could have been
And now I'm left here with these hopes inside these dreams

As the fire slowly dies so will the passion
Of everything that we have ever loved (what we stood for)
And all I ask of you is to remember the night where you walked away (the night you walked away)
Do you remember when I swept you off your feet

This will be the last time that I'm screaming your name
As the tides wash away the presence of love itself
It's the final time
It's the final time

Do you recall the promise you made to me
I still dream about the day
Is this way (is this the way) that you want it to be (that you want it to be)
Is this way (is this the way) that you want it to be (that you want it to be)

When it all comes down, crashing around
Can you look at the stars and tell me?
Is this really the way, that you wanted to say
How you wanted this thing to be?
When it all comes down
Tell me will you wonder, will you ponder how you lost the way?
When it all comes down
Tell me will you think and will you say

As the fire slowly dies so will the passion
Of everything that we have ever loved (what we stood for)
And all I ask of you is to remember the night where you walked away (the night you walked away)
Do you remember when I swept you off your feet

Do you remember when
Do you remember when
Do you remember when I swept you off your feet
Do you recall (do you recall)

Just take my hand
You know it's all in good fun
Just take my hand
You know it's all in good fun
In good fun
Track Name: eHarmony
They came down, descending from the heavens
Kidnapping the poor girl right up from her sleep
In her they gave the world its dying message
"Surrender, you Earthlings, we're breaking you piece by piece"

No survivors
Not a one that will live to say
No survivors
Not a one that will live to say

They will erase us all

Not a one that will live to say

The people laughed as the poor girl tried to warn them
They locked her up and they threw away the key
That's when it rained, a fire of a fury
A slaughter for the ages
They won't stop until we're deceased
This is the end

A better price to pay, than be left to see
All the slaughter unbeknownst to me
They took every poor soul that their eyes did see
And washed this whole world over in misery
Our home's been slain
Our blood is the price we pay
And my soul can't sleep. It gently weeps
For the terror to cease, for a better day

They came down, descending from the heavens
Kidnapping the poor girl right up from her sleep
In her they gave the world its dying message
"Surrender, you Earthlings, we're breaking you piece by piece"

No survivors
Not a one that will live to say
No survivors
Not a one that will live to say

They will erase us all
They will erase us all
Track Name: Skeeter Was A Baller
Sucker!

It's occurring to me
That this has to be another horror
Just another painful tragedy
Got me spread so thin. Where do I begin?
Falling apart
Walking down your bridge of solid lies

Lies (x3)

C'mon pretty girl. You know the world is watching
We wanna show that pretty face the love and praise it deserves
C'mon pretty girl. You know the world is watching
We wanna show that pretty face the love and praise it deserves
So obvious to all who see
To everyone but me
That your ways will be the end of me
Your kiss erases all my courage to leave
It makes me weak to my knees
Now I see, we'll never make it out alive

We won't make it out alive
We won't, we won't make it out
We won't make it out alive tonight
I think we've been right here before (before)
Because your palms are sweating
So I'll take my chances and fall deeper into this

Am I the only one who can't see through to your lies? (x3)
Just take off your mask

C'mon pretty girl. You know the world is watching
We wanna show that pretty face the love and praise it deserves
C'mon pretty girl. Don't you know the world is watching?
We wanna show that pretty face the love and praise it deserves

Lie (x2)

Do you know she's burning?
She's burning alive in a sea of her lies
Do you know she's burning?
She's burning alive in a sea of her lies

Will I ever be free?
Track Name: This Is Heavy, Doc
Realize I'm setting you free

This is the provocation
For what? For me?
This is the longing for the freedom that your heart seeks
Abandon the false doctrines you were taught to bear
Realize behind your eyes a fire begging to be shared

You've been sleeping too long
Now it's time. Wake up from your slumber
You came here on a special mission
I've got your attention. Time to get it done
Can you really just sit idly by?
Can you not feel the calling to come alive?
You came here on a special mission
I've got your attention. Time to get it done

You know it's true
Remember!

Open your eyes. You will remember
Open your eyes. You will remember
Can you really just sit idly by?
Can you not feel the calling to come alive?
You came here on a special mission
I've got your attention. Wake up and get it done
Time waits for no one

This is the provocation
For what? For me?
This is the longing for the freedom that your heart seeks
Abandon the false doctrines you were taught to bear
Realize behind your eyes a burning fire begging to be shared

You've been sleeping too long
Now it's time. Wake up from your slumber
You came here on a special mission
I've got your attention. Time to get it done
Can you really just sit idly by?
Can you not feel the calling to come alive?
You came here on a special mission
I've got your attention. Time to get it done

You know it's true

Open your eyes. You will remember
Open your eyes. You will remember
Can you really just sit idly by?
Can you not feel the calling to come alive?
You came here on a special mission
I've got your attention. Wake up and get it done
Track Name: E.S.F.Y.B.
Open your eyes

It's about time you know
I thought I saw you by the wishing well
You're heart was begging for my sorrow
A tragedy
This is the last time "my friend"
That this treachery will persist
While I burn bright as a supernova
You'll evaporate into the dust

I should've seen it coming
Such a long, long time before
I can see straight through the mask you wear
You're not a second worth my time
I should've seen this coming
This storm silently brewing
You smile in the fakest fashion
Two faced in the darkest passion

As you hide behind
You're ego and state of mind

Who do you think you are?
Driving things to points this far
I'll never fail to see
The ones who are truly here for me
You call out, you cry out my name
You martyr yourself to conceal your own shame
Enough

Move!

As you hide behind
You're ego and state of mind
Track Name: No Chance Romance
Move!

So here we are, on a beaten road
These dreams consumed the hopes
You know the love we shared is the most I've cared
You brought me back to life from a ghost
But there you stand in front of me
With your bag in your hand
Tears run down your cheeks
My heart quakes as you speak
You've tried so hard but it's taking its toll
You can't live with your heart on the road

Now baby please, if you believe in me
If you believe in our love then why can't you see
You told me live for my hopes
Now it's the noose that's around my throat

If I was your favorite one
Where were you when I (where were you when I)
Was coming undone?
If I was your favorite one
Then where were you when I finally found my way back home?
(Finally found my way back home)
You said you'd stay the same
I always knew you'd change

We can't let these chance here pass us by
We'll regret it 'til the day we die
So hard we tried, but it was never meant for you and I
We'll always have the summer in our minds
Different times
We're still together in the parallels
We never will divide

If I was your favorite one
Where were you when I (where were you when I)
Was coming undone?
If I was your favorite one
The where were you when I finally found my way back home?
(Finally found my way back home)
You said you'd stay the same
I always knew you'd change

I always knew you'd change

Go!

You said you'd stay the same
I always knew you'd change
You said you'd stay the same
I always knew you'd change

If I was your favorite one
Then where were you when I was busy coming undone?
You turned your back on me
And said you couldn't understand why I needed these dreams
If I was your favorite one
Then where were you when I finally found my way back home?
You turned your back on me
And said you couldn't understand why I needed these dreams

If I was your favorite one
Where were you when I (where were you when I)
Was coming undone?
If I was your favorite one
Then where were you when I finally found my way back home?
(Finally found my way back home)
You said you'd stay the same
I always knew you'd change

I always knew you'd change
Track Name: Burn Baby Burn
Well honestly she's been bugging me for days
With a bag full of dynamite & alcoholic drinks
Hot mess with a tight little body and I can't put her out
As the whole city screams
My body sleeps
I'll burn this motherfucker down

I said, burn baby burn!
I said, burn baby burn!

She's never looked so good before
Now that she's strapped with enough bombs to tear apart
The whole world (now that you're all ears)
The whole world, yeah

I just can't stop undressing you
Cause I know you want it anyway
I gripped the thighs of the devil
And I made 'em shake up under me
Cause I just can't stop undressing you
Cause I know you want it anyway
I gripped the thighs of the devil
And I made 'em shake up under me
Up under me, c'mon!

Girl rock that body like boom
Girl shake that ass like boom
Girl rock your body like you're a ticking time bomb and you're ready to blow
Girl rock that body like boom
Girl shake that ass like boom
Girl rock your body like you're a ticking time bomb and you're ready to blow

Come on!

I just can't stop undressing you
Cause I know you want it anyway
I gripped the thighs of the devil
And I made 'em shake up under me
Cause I just can't stop undressing you
Cause I know you want it anyway
I gripped the thighs of the devil
And I made 'em shake up under me
Up under me, c'mon!

I said, burn baby burn!
I said, burn baby burn!

If you're strapped with a good time baby c'mon
Girls scream cocaine, rock 'n roll
If you're strapped with a good time baby c'mon
Girls scream cocaine, rock 'n roll

Bitch you best be running
We're on your heels
Bitch you best be running
We're on your heels
Bitch you best be running
We're coming for those heels
Oh shit!
Track Name: Nightmare On Spooner Street
Apparently we're not safe here my dear and it's clear
We're paying double for mistakes we've made
We've gotta find a way out. But there's not one here it seems
The nightmare's always worse when it escapes from your dream

Oh dear God such a terrible price we've paid
I can't believe how this is happening
Eternal dancing round this labyrinth
There's no way to resist the eclipse casting over our minds

And I was hoping for love, not despair, in my mind

We knew this day was coming
We felt it for some years
We knew the day would come when we would have to face our fears
We knew this day was coming
We felt it for some years
We knew the day would come when we would have to face our fears

Now I just can't get the latch on this cape to lock
Can't be your Superman. I'm nobody's hero
Got us dancing like we're puppets. I see the strings
Pantheons of terror living inside the dream

And I was hoping for love, not despair, in my dream

Apparently we're not safe here my dear and it's clear
We're paying double for mistakes we've made
We've gotta find a way out. But there's not one here it seems
The nightmare's always worse when it escapes from your dreams

I'm guessing that we've reached the end of our rope
I hear the Reaper's call sounding out into the night
Goodbye my love, I think the iceberg just struck the ship
While we're locked lip in lip, begin our frozen descent

Just as he reached for her
My mind regained its consciousness and fire to live
You won't take our lives here now, oh no
You're the one who's gonna wind up dead
These comments brought Him humor
As the sound of laughter resonated forth from his head
With a wicked wink and a grin
He took in my final breath of courage and with it that foul beast said

Just relax while I watch you die
Victory shall be mine

There is no escape for what I have planned for you to-
There is no escape for what I have planned for you tonight
Track Name: Rusty Shackleford
To all my friends
These are the times we won't forget
We watched the hands of God
Take the life of a desperate, hopeless man
So lifeless, and so desperate

This is a sickness
And it claims the body of us all
We can't hide the fact that we're dying slowly
Slowly, but surely oh, death has a number for us all
Where will you be at the curtain call?

To all my friends (to all my friends)
These are the times that we won't forget
We can't forget
As the fire burns
In the hearts of those
Who have suffered the consequence
We won't forget

We won't forget the fire in the eyes
[Of a man] Of a man with a passion to survive
[Goodbye my friend] Goodbye my friend. I pray to God I see your face
[In the end] In the end, I just can't understand

If you could only see
See through eyes of a dying man
So lifeless
Its something we can't understand

Its hard to think that death can sneak up so silently
Its safe to say that we're out of control
You can't sit still, oh no, and watch this life here pass you by
Some of us won't even get the chance to try
Get the chance to try and escape such horrible fate
We won't forget

We won't forget the fire in the eyes
[Of a man] Of a man with a passion to survive
[Goodbye my friend] Goodbye my friend. I pray to God I see your face
[In the end] In the end, I just can't understand
Just can't understand

To all my friends, these are the times we won't forget
I never had a chance to say goodbye
To all my friends [to all my friends]
These are the times we won't forget.
I never had a chance to say

Goodbye, I never had the chance to say

This sickness eats us alive from the inside
Don't ever take this life for granted.
This sickness eats us alive from the inside
Don't take this life for granted.
