Track Name: 2005
It's been a tuff year and it's not over yet, I hate waking up alone I try to forget. I owe more money than I care to talk, and sometimes I get so DRUNK I can't even walk!

Things just don't seem to be falling in place, I get so tired in this endless race. I meet the right people and I shake the right hands, but I can't catch a break, I don't understand.
Track Name: All Jammed Up
Oh My Networks All Jammed Up Again
Wouldn't it be something if I could just force a smile
What will she think of me when I say good bye
To be with her, I'd rather Die

Oh my Networks All Jammed Up Again
Watch this slow fade I perfected so well.
and who can stand those stories anyways
get your thumb out on the highway and do it my way.

hey wait a minute, I've gotta take this call
and put those hands together now as we fall
all my wires are crossed, I've got nothing Left
Track Name: Rutley
Oh Rutley Please take a stand, which way are you swinging, is it a women of a man. Your hand on my thigh is making me feel weird, don't you know that its ok to Queer.
Track Name: Everyone Marches
This Gun is a Metaphor
Everyone Marches, Everyone Carries a Gun
