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

In The Sun 02:44
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

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

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

Drive Us Out 03:19
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

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

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

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

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

Out of Time 03:31
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

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

In Space 08:03
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!
