Track Name: Lock 'Em Up
E
Teenagers with their guns and knives and rock n roll,
They should be locked up in a cage.
They should be controlled.
B
Cause a prison’s just the place for the undefined
E
To reside.
B
(A prison’s just the place for you and me,
E(C#m)
You and me)x2

B
Lock em all up!
Lock em all up!
Lock em up in a cage!

Lock em all up!
Lock em all up!
Lock em up in a box,
E
For god’s sakes!
Track Name: Retrogression
Capo 4
C G F-Am F-G
I wanna go back
back in ti-i-i-ime.
I wanna go back
back in ti-i-i-ime.

I wanna go back.
I’m in the wrong generation, please take me back.

To the past
without iphones, laptops, or smallpox vaccines;
the past
with prohibition and segregation,
and don’t forget
the overwhelming chauvinism.
The problems of the past
are worth it for their taste in fashion.
It wouldn’t bother me
if a husband’s wife were still his possession.

Cause human rights and medicine
are second to my sentiment.
I just want to get away
from all these tech advancements.
Please send me back in time.
Track Name: Another Song
Capo 4

C F-Am F-G C
Homicide might taste good but you can’t wash it.
The kill doesn’t leave your hands like the blood down the faucet.

CHORUS
Dm G C-G F
At least that’s what I’ve heard and I can’t tell you that it’s wrong.
F G C
If I find out I’ll write another song.

C F-Am F-G C
You can rob a bank but you won’t feel like a person.
No matter what amends you make, you’ll see what’s done is done.

CHORUS

Dm G C-G F
But how would I find out unless I go do something wrong?
F G C
I won’t fill myself with guilt just for this song.
Track Name: You Can't Negotiate
C F Am G
We’re under attack from the sky.
We’d better blow it the fuck up,
because we’re all gonna die
Unless we blow it the fuck up.

You can’t negotiate with the weather,
but you can tell it what to do with a bomb.
Rain and snow are making the ground much wetter.
We’ll win this war just like we won in nam!

Get ready minutemen bring your rifles.
Get ready NRA bring your machine guns,
and rocket launchers,
and all of your grenades.

You can’t negotiate with the weather,
but you can tell it what to do with a bomb.
Rain and snow are making the ground much wetter.
We’ll win this war just like we won in nam!
Track Name: Spring
Capo 4
C G
Well spring has flowers, but I’ve got flowers too,
but I haven’t got any flowers here for you.
Am G C
I’ve got a gun and you’ve got a neck,
but I ain’t got no aim,
Am G C
and spring’s not here so I guess you’ll die in vain.

G C
Can you believe
what people do?
Can you believe
you’re people, too?
I can’t believe
it’s almost spring.
This rebirth can’t keep up with the ashes.
This rebirth can’t keep up with the ashes.

The sun is shining, but I am shining too.
I’m shining a flashlight to help me murder you.
With this gun I’ll break your neck,
but I ain’t got no aim,
and if I miss I’ll fire it again.

Can you believe
what people do?
Can you believe
you’re people, too?
I can’t believe
it’s almost spring.
This rebirth can’t keep up with the ashes.
This rebirth can’t keep up with the ashes.
This rebirth can’t keep up with the ashes.
Track Name: Weather Monster
Capo 4
C F Am F
I think the weather man is trying to kill me
I think he know’s where I live and he’s trying to kill me
Cause he’s sending storms to kill my friends and family
Cause he’s sending storms to kill my friends and family

This weather monster is out of control
the polar vortex won’t let me go
and the older I get the more consequences the weather has on me
and the older I get the more consequences the weather has on me

I think Santa Claus is trying to kill me
I think he know’s where I live and he’s trying to kill me
Cause he’s sending gifts to bankrupt my friends and family
Cause he’s sending gifts to bankrupt my friends and family

This Christmas monster is out of control
the holidays won’t let me go
and the older I get the more consequences the money has on me
and the older I get the more consequences the money has on me

I think Jesus Christ is trying to kill me
I think he know’s where I live and he’s trying to kill me
Cause he’s sending Grace to fool my friends and family
and he’s fighting with Helix for all my friends and family

This Jesus monster is out of control
the church of god won’t let me go
and the older I get the fewer consequences the religion has on me
and the older I get the fewer consequences the religion has on me

I think all these men are trying to kill me
I think they know where I live and they’re trying to kill me
they’re trying to kill me
they’re trying to kill me
they’re trying to kill me
they’re trying to kill me
But I’m gonna fuck them up before they get to me!
Track Name: Nemo
Capo 4
C Dm C G7
I can’t let God listen to my lyrics
and when 2 or 3 people gather he’s present in their midst
so I only play for crowds of 4 or more

I don’t wanna be stoned
I don’t wanna be crucified
I don’t wanna be hated
and I don’t wanna die

I was slapped on my right cheek
so I turned and offered up my left
and I just kept getting slapped

If I sing this in the open I will die a lion
and bible says we’d better live as dogs
so I wont play this song in front of God or anyone
Because I don’t want to die!

Gloria in excelsis nemo!
