Track Name: We Rule The World
We've been beaten and
Pushed around for far too long
Indifference got hold of us
And it's holding us down

Right here and now
And together
We rule the world

We've got the ideas for change
We've got the strength to fight on
We've got the will to see it through
So together
We rule the world

Don't let them tell you
That your voice doesn't matter
Stand and fight back
As they chip your rights away

Right here and now
And together
We rule the world

We've got the ideas for change
We've got the strength to fight on
We've got the will to see it through
So together
We rule the world

We've got the ideas for change
We've got the strength to fight on
We've got the will to see it through
So together
We rule the world
Track Name: In The Sun
No time to pack my suitcase
I'm hitting the road
I'm gonna run right into the sun

'cause life is pretty sweet
When you know how it works
But I can't figure out all of your weird quirks

I'm burning rubber
Moving on
You run me out
My ass is gone

Cannot stay
Don't get you
Moving on to
Find something new

Sun burn might burn me out
Maybe I'd be better off
In the sun

Might die out there or die in here
Better to stay warm and
In the sun

No time to pack my suitcase
I'm hitting the road
I'm gonna run right into the sun

I don't want to waste my time
Or energy on you
I'm gonna get out while the getting's good

I know I am
Better than this
Now I'm gone
You got your wish

All I want is
All I need
And all I need
Is need indeed

Sun burn might burn me out
Maybe I'd be better off
In the sun

Might die out there or die in here
Better to stay warm and
In the sun

Sun burn might burn me out
Maybe I'd be better off
In the sun

Might die out there or die in here
Better to stay warm and
In the sun
Track Name: Nijyuu Hibakusha
In a twisted sort of fortune
He struggles to his feet
Blinded and disoriented
With burns all down one side

When his sight returns he finds
He can't believe his eyes
Around one hundred thousand
People lost their lives

He crawled into a shelter to recover from his wounds
Spent three days out there and then returned to work

Nijyuu hibakusha
We salute you
Nijyuu hibakusha
Hero for our times
Your strength and dedication will never be forgotten
You taught us all how life always goes on

Nobody would believe him
When he got to Nagasaki
No way a little boy could
Destroy Hiroshima

When the fat man falls he's
Thrown to the ground again
His home destroyed, but still alive
Takes shelter with his family

He keeps on working, though his place of work is gone
Finds a job as a translator for the men who dropped the bombs

Nijyuu hibakusha
We salute you
Nijyuu hibakusha
Hero for our times
Your strength and dedication will never be forgotten
You taught us all how life always goes on
Track Name: 2KX
Someone's watching you
Tracking your every movement

Someone's watching you
Waiting for you to screw up

It doesn't matter who you are
It doesn't matter what you've done
They'll find a way to get you
They always do

There is nowhere you can hide
There is nowhere left to run
All under surveillance
They're watching you

This is the world we're in today
All our lives are not our own
Your secrets get out some how
Whether you broadcast it yourself
Or they broadcast it for you
Privacy is gone

This is the world we're in today
Keep your head down and don't look up
Keep all your fears to yourself
If your tongue loosens all will know
And everyone is out to judge you
Fairness is gone

It doesn't matter who you are
It doesn't matter what you've done
And yet you seek revenge
Someone's harmed you

There is nowhere you can hide
There is nowhere left to run
Try being safe in your coccoon
It might just work

This is the world we're in today
Minor criminals dealt with harshly
They're locked up with murderers
To learn the tricks of the trade
And they will master the craft
Safety is gone

This is the world we're in today
The guy you vote for never wins
Because he's a real boy
Not a marionette
Are you paranoid yet?

Someone's watching you
Someone's judging you
Someone's watching you
But they're not hearing you
Track Name: Drive Us Out
That's right, keep pushing, see what happens
We won't be held responsible for our actions
Light the fuse then get mad at the dynamite
It's not gonna care once it's alight

You tighten the grip to try to keep control
But we got our independence and we're not gonna go

You won't drive us out
Drive us out
Drive us out
No you won't drive us out
Drive us out
Drive us out
No you won't drive us out
Drive us out
Drive us out
Well this is not the last you'll hear from us

We saw you trying to rewrite the rules
Taking us all for some pack of fools
We're right minded people and we know better
Than to let you get away with murder

I don't know what you think gives you the right
But we're not going down without a fight

You won't drive us out
Drive us out
Drive us out
No you won't drive us out
Drive us out
Drive us out
No you won't drive us out
Drive us out
Drive us out
Well this is not the last you'll hear

You won't drive us out
Drive us out
Drive us out
No you won't drive us out
Drive us out
Drive us out
No you won't drive us out
Drive us out
Drive us out
Well this is not the last you'll hear from us
Track Name: What You Do Best
Wake up, wash up
Suit up, move out
Take the wheel

Go left, next right
Pull up, lock, load
Ready to go in

I might lose the coin toss
Or draw the short straw
To settle my unrest
Still you have to do
What you do best

I don't feel right
This might not be me
I may be possessed
Still you have to do
What you do best

Time set, dropped off
It's time to go
To put it down

Why try, let go
Keep on, can't stop
It's far too late

I might lose the coin toss
Or draw the short straw
To settle my unrest
Still you have to do
What you do best

I don't feel right
This might not be me
I may be possessed
Still you have to do
What you do best

Still you have to do
What you do best
Still you have to do
What you do best
Track Name: Boldly Going Nowhere
Pedal to the metal but you're stuck in neutral
Too agitated to get it together
Trying to submit to everybody's approval
But you don't know where to start

Want to get far
Want to go far
Got to mean something somewhere
To try to get away from here
You've got the drive
But you don't have the gear

You're boldly going nowhere
You're boldly going nowhere
I know you could push harder
If only you could have some place to be

Strength and resolution won't get you moving
It takes much more than that when your
Mind is on winning though your body's losing
You need the energy to explode

Want to get far
Want to go far
Got to mean something somewhere
To try to get away from here
You've got the drive
But you don't have the gear

You're boldly going nowhere
You're boldly going nowhere
I know you could push harder
If only you could have some place to be

You're boldly going nowhere
You're boldly going nowhere
I know you could push harder
If only you could have some place
If only you could have some place
If only you could have some place to be
Track Name: The Peasants Revolt
We've put up with this shit for far too long
Let a broken government stay in control
Their corruption erodes our basic freedoms
Until all that's left
Is our right
To remain silent
You have the right
To remain silent
You have the right
To remain silent

We have a right
To rock
The foundations
Of government
To change
Our country
To mend
The broken
To govern
Ourselves
To take
Our freedom back

We are in control

We've put up with this shit for far too long
We let politicians get away with murder
We all do as we're told and we don't
Want to rock the boat
I say it's time that we revolt

This is our great rising
Our call to arms
March on London, fight the power
Take back what is really ours
We don't have to let them take our freedoms
A call to disorder, the peasants' revolt

The class divide is alive and well
With one political class above all
They'll spy on you without admission
In the name of fighting terrorism

Nothing of yours is private anymore
All information belongs to the state
We're not all terrorists
We don't want to be treated as such

I say it is time
I say it is time that we revolt

We make the votes
We pay their salary
We do the work
We call the shots

This is our great rising
Our call to arms
March on London, fight the power
Take back what is really ours
We don't have to let them take our freedoms
A call to disorder, the peasants' revolt
Track Name: Life Is A Lesson In Reconciliation
I remember that look in your eyes
When you said that you would never forget
Things are going so fast these days we got
No time for regret

Well that works just fine for me now
I feel glad that everything's moving
You must be ready to let everything go
Before things start improving

And after all we have been through
We'll have to learn to start anew

It takes communication
To overcome our mutual condemnation
Life is a lesson in reconciliation

We cannot let frustration
Be our only motivation
Life is a lesson in reconciliation
The hardest lesson we'll ever learn

You remember back when you said
That everything is going fine
That seems a whole life time ago
Before we had crossed the line

I'm all ready to forgive and forget
But you had to hold a grudge
It'd best if we learned to move on
Before we're in front of a judge

And after all we have been through
We'll have to learn to start anew

It takes communication
To overcome our mutual condemnation
Life is a lesson in reconciliation

We cannot let frustration
Be our only motivation
Life is a lesson in reconciliation
The hardest lesson we'll ever learn
The hardest lesson we'll ever learn
The hardest lesson we'll ever learn
Track Name: Out of Time
Life on earth can be so exquisite
But one life is such a short visit
Some day we'll have to say goodbye
And it always feels like we're out of time
As the final hour draws near
Some are captive in a state of fear
Of what might come and what will be
Our future here is not guaranteed

Life is hard and there's lots to get wrong
So I'm glad I'm not around too long
We'd be stuck with no escape
While humanity repeats all its mistakes
Yet as our lives take dips and turns
We try to hold to the lessons we learn
But what impetus do we have to try
If we think that one day we'll die?

I think time enjoyed is not a waste
And this life is given to be embraced
But our eternal purpose is so much greater
As intended by our creator
God is immortal while the earth decays
And He is pleased by our attempts at praise
He gave us a life we could never deserve
And sees all we do upon this earth

God has no beginning and no end
A concept whose fullness we can never comprehend
Although mere mortals our deeds live on
In the mind of God long after we're gone
For all life remains a blip on forever
While our creator watches our every endevour
To live forever is to live for the divine
To live for our God who lives out of time
Track Name: Micromanagement
There on your island you will stay
Now you've pushed everyone else away
How does it feel to really be alone?
Was it worth the pain you've sown?

Now you can rule your world
Because your world is now so small
It's just you and your own thoughts
All white noise from all your flaws

You can not control
Others in this world
You can't even understand

Now alone you lose your mind
To faded memories of mankind
And jealous rage for the world outside

They got close, you pushed them down
Afraid they didn't want you around
That wasn't meant to be your choice
And now your life and theirs destroyed

I know you push because you care
That's no excuse to bring despair
Your driving force is just the same
As the fear keeps you contained

You can not control
Others in this world
You can't even understand

Now alone you lose your mind
To faded memories of mankind
And jealous rage for the world outside

You can not control
Others in this world
You can't even understand

Now alone you lose your mind
To faded memories of mankind
And jealous rage for the world outside
Track Name: In Space
Hey, everybody, let's live in space
We can go today
Aim the rocket away from your face
And off we go!

Hey, everybody, let's live in space
We can go today
Aim the rocket away from your face
And off we go!

In space
There's nothing weighing you down
In space
Everything is wonderful
In space
Unless you hit a star
In space
Then you will burn to bits

There's no responsibility
Just do as we please
Breathe to the best of your ability
There's no air in space

In space
No one can hear you scream
In space
Except over the radio
In space
But we're using it for disco
In space
It's a weightless dance contest

What's up moon rock!
What's up cute tentacle!
What's up space dog that I'm walking!
What's up koala in a eucalyptus tree!
Everyone!
What's... what's...
Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup!!

In space
We're happy all the time
In space
Asteroids become dangerous
In space
Lots of great things to see
In space
Everything is groovy!
