Hit After Hit

2014

1. Party Alarm

I use to believe in something, now I'm not so sure
I wanna believe, I wanna believe, in something pure
Something I could rest the weight on, trust in your words
I wanna believe, I wanna believe, but I'm not that person anymore

2. Laptop Jockey

The night is sneaking, like a thief running out of the door
A culture sinking to the depths, can we restore?
No use in speaking, I can't take it anymore
I just keep drinking, just keep sinking, 'til I'm floored

Hey Mr. DJ, I don't wanna dance to it anymore
I've been wasting my time, feet flat on the floor
Hey Mr. DJ, I don't wanna think about it anymore
Hey DJ leave us kids alone

The boredom's leaking, like the sweat coming out of my pores
The same old deck's been dealt again, can ya gimme some more?
No use in speaking, using words, just makes me sore
I just keep drinking, like I'm sinking, 'til I'm floored

Hey Mr. DJ, I don't wanna dance to it anymore
I've been dulling my mind, feet flat on the floor
Hey Mr. DJ, I don't wanna think about it anymore
Hey DJ leave us kids alone

We don't need no education
We don't need no though control
We don't want your shitty selections
We can find some other place to go

Some other place to go
Some other place to go

3. Sheets in the Wind

When the world falls apart, and time breaks your heart, and they'll
Never let you go, they'll never let you go
And the lines disappear, the feeling is fear, and they'll
Never let you go, they'll never let you go

The past is calling, tells you not to begin
But tomorrow's pulling, and you know it always wins
Life might be nothing but sheets in the wind
Tied to a line, everything changes

Dry your eyes
Surrender inside
As a new day rise
You're never gonna find if you
Stay in place
Life won't wait for you
They'll just replace
What ya got inside you

When you can't find the will, and life won't stand still, and they'll
Never let you go, they'll never let you go
When daggers draw near, the lines disappear and they'll
Never let you go, they'll never let you go

Yesterday's calling, tells you you can't win,
But the sharks just get closer, everyday you don't begin
Life might be nothing but sheets in the wind
Tied to a line, everything changes

Dry your eyes
Surrender inside
Watch a new day die
They won't even try
As they stay in place
Life won't wait for you
It'll just replace
It won't come to find you

How long will these feelings define you
And I don't wanna to wait
Those scars are just there to remind you
How much will you let them take

4. Mucho Frio

Retrace! cause I want to correct
All the misplaced words and poorly formed steps
That came, before all this regret
All these fucking moments I can't choke or repress

Those unspoken words
Thought I saw you mumble but I never really heard
Outside the structures you were referred
To some kind of miracle now that seems absurd

Don't know what I say my eyes were blurred
Woke up the morning, felt what I deserve
Felt what I deserve

Shh!
Sshhh!

Guilty! of some kind of crime
You don't got the kind of stomach for this poison heart of mine
Discount on love, (for) the kids left behind,
For the silence in the corner, the kind that you can't define

These streets filled with dread
Running from the moment, i'm running from my head
Dispatch the calls, the memory is dead
Do the dirty dishes, and burn the sheets of this bed

I'm the kind of thought better left unsaid
I'm the kind of book better left unread
Better left unread

Deeeaaadddd!
I'm the kind of thought better left unsaid
I'm the kind of book better left unread
Better left unread

5. Nerd at the Punk Show

Where did all beauty crawl up from?
And where will the misfits go?
Where did these bros learn about suffering?
And where will I go to get hope?

I don't know,
NO! I don't know

I look around, I'm in strange surroundings,
No longer a space of my own
The back of the room, is no longer sounding
Like back in the day, I guess I'll just stay home

I don't know,
NO! I don't know

I am alone in, a crowd that thinks they are alone
In a crowd that thinks, I am alone

I close my eyes, and breath in all this exile
I clench my fist, like I'll never let it go
I'll dance between all the blind and the hostile,
In broken fast time, the only dance that I know

I don't know,
NO! I don't know

I am alone in, a crowd that thinks they are alone
On a crowd that thinks, I am alone

Where do we go,
Where do we go,
Where do we go,
Where do we go,

Go, go, back to our home!

6. Destroy the Human Race

Night after night
I look to the stars, and ask myself in their light
What the hell is looking back at me?
With no love in their heart, undo my body, take me back to the start
Take us back to savagery

They come from outer space
Destroy the human race
They come from outer space
Destroy destroy

Day after day
With our fists in the air, they won't go away
Why the hell have they chosen me?
With no love in their blood, unchain my body, take me back to the flood
Take us back to savagery

They come from outer space
Destroy the human race
They come from outer space
Destroy destroy
Mother ship won't you call me home
Mother ship yeah you call me alone
Mother ship won't you call me home
Mother ship yeah

They come from outer space
Destroy the human race
They come from outer space
Destroy destroy destroy

7. Circus Tiger

You broken monster just behave
Jump through these hoops, dance in this cage
Just keep your feelings between the words
Gonna learn to roar without being heard

And I think that I come from a different age
And I think that I come from a different page

Pretty sure that I'm done for
Yeah I know that I'm played
Pretty sure that I'm done for
But I don't know how to change

I close my eyes and just pretend
That the bars between as will someday bend
A crowded room, but the witness lies
With coded words and consensus eyes

And I think that I come from a different age
And I think that I come from a different page

Pretty sure that I'm done for
Don't want to complain
Pretty sure that I'm done for
Now and all I feel is shame

8. Dead in the Dirt

The back door you didn't lock it
I know your name (I got it) written in my pocket

Your life's a mine, I'm digging for quotes
Your words, you spoke
Your life's a mine, I'm digging myself a moat

I won't stop until you stay
Dead in the dirt, out of my way
There's no fire, but I'm calling it smoke
Your words, you spoke
There's no fire, there's a liar at the end of the rope

And I hope he chokes

9. Snake Charmer

Sing your song so close to their fire
Lost between the myths and the false signifiers
You are the smoke in our eyes before the money disappears
If our blood is their oil, then your words are the gears

Sometimes the words don't mean what they say
You sing them a song, and the wolves stay at bay
Sometimes the words don't mean what they say
Yeah you sing us a song

You're just a snake charmer, we are the fist, you are the armour
You're just some kind of snake charmer, we are the fist, you are the armour

Lock the doors and watch the smoke kiss the sky
Fan the flames as they burn, take control, then deny
You are the vulture in the dark, you the wolf herding sheep
Your words won't let go, they don't know release

Sometimes the words don't mean what they say
You sing them a song, and the wolves stay at bay
Sometimes the words don't mean what they say
Yeah you sing us a song

You're just a snake charmer, we are the fist, you are the armour
You're just some kind of snake charmer, we are the fist, you are the armour

10. Body and Soul

These thoughts are like a prison to me
These doubts are so old they feel like a home
And you can't take, cause someone might see
The hunger in your lies, the fear in your tone

Held so tight to the words
That I don't know what they mean anymore
'til they tasted sour
Spat them out all over the floor

They don't make sense anymore
Yeah they don't make sense anymore

And I'm trying to remember how I can breath
With your knifes so close, sneaking up on me
Did you stumble? and now you can't leave
Cover the cuts so (no one can see/they'd leave you alone)

Held so tight to the words
That I don't know what they mean anymore
'til they tasted sour
Spat them out all over the floor

They don't make sense anymore
Yeah they don't make sense anymore

11. All is All

While we still breath
And our hearts still beat
In 4x4 time, with electric love,
To lies we believe

At the end of the song,
The lights came on,
And life was same, familiar taste,
Before too long

At the Bridge
There will be a toll
From these pieces
There will be a whole
Before this life spills
Out of control
All is one
All is all

Before you sleep
And the dealers cheat
The odds of this life, sounding like a song,
Coming back to keep

With your heroes gone,
Left with their songs,
You can't move on, the moment's gone
The time was seized,

At the Bridge
There will be a toll
From these pieces
There will be a whole
Before this life spills
Out of control
All is one
All is all

I can see the ropes they've used to tie you down
I can hear you calling, when you can't make a sound
I can be the noose, or I can be the crown
Can't you see we're falling, falling

At the Bridge
There will be a toll
From these pieces
There will be a whole
Before this life spills
Out of control
All is one
All is all

Why Isn't Allen Here?

2012

1. Built to Break

Shut my eyes so I can't see the light

Paint this picture black and white
Of all the things that get me closer to you
Of all my life, of all this youth
If they told me now where I was going to
Fading, and I'm waiting
I'm loosing my mind
Waiting forever
At the end of the line

Crazy, cause lately
I've been loosing my mind
Waiting forever
At the end of the line

Somewhere in the background of my life
I'll find my reason, find my right
Of all the things that I'll go through
inside this life, without a clue
If they told me now where I was going to

Fading, and I'm waiting
I'm loosing my mind
Waiting forever
At the end of the line

Crazy, cause lately
I've been loosing my mind
Waiting forever
At the end of the line

2. Too Much

You're a child and I know
I've watched you grow
around tragedy
into the most beautiful tree

Old statues fall
Good engines stall
Young eyes can't see
but between you and me

When the wolves start to bite
When the ropes are too tight
I won't let them take too much
I won't let them take too much

When the rivers of fright
Fall out of your eyes
I won't let them take too much
I won't let them take too much

We can guard this space
Keep the pain in it's place
Keep those devils away
And just live for today

Old statues fall
Good engines stall
Young eyes can't see
But between you and me

When the wolves start to bite
When the ropes are too tight
I won't let them take too much
I won't let them take too much

When the rivers of fright
Fall out of your eyes
I won't let them take too much
I won't let them take too much

Good intentions don't need to be feared
They're be times when you don't wanna hear
When it's dark in that place in your heart
I'll be here, like I was from the start
When the wolves start to bite
When the ropes are too tight
I won't let them take too much
I won't let them take too much

When the rivers of fright
Fall out of your eyes
I won't let them take too much
I won't let them take too much

When the words start to fly
Fall out of the sky
And the pain don't take too much
And the pain don't take too much

In the middle your night
When the liars deny
I won't let them take too much
I won't let them take too much

3. Neapolitan

Why keep breathing
Nothing to believe in
I need a reason
or life is treason

Tie me down,
We're breeding,
Without meaning,
But this heart keeps beating
And we just keep moving on

Keep believing
I need a reason
Something to believe in
Of life is treason

Hold it down,
Keep seeking,
Worth leading,
This heart keeps believing,
This heart just keeps beating strong

Keep believing
I need a reason
Something to believe in
Of life is treason

If I could just hold back this feeling
Spend my time in heaven believing
If I could just change with this season
Away, away

Why keep breathing
Nothing to believe in
I need a reason
Or life is treason

4. Songs Won't Save You

I was singing starry eyes
On the eve of I know your name
I was humming desperate calls
Cling to the walls
Of the halls in which I came
Stand! cause I don't know how to fall
Dance! like you was not coming at all
I've already swallowed the shot
It's too late to throw up
Just dance until I fall

Hold on
Let go
Don't move
Too slow

Now I'm still singing beggars songs
In the wake of the pain that remains
I'm still running straight into walls
So sick of it all, like nothing will ever change
Stand! cause you know you won't call
Dance! like tomorrow's not coming at all
I'm already guilty and caught
And my stomach's in knots
And I don't see the point in it all

Hold on
Let go
Don't move
Too slow

2011

1. Man of the People

Your life,
The position you hold and your wealth given to you
Oh, somebody else

Throw crumbs below
But don't give up control
stand in a role, stand in a role

Wash this down
Throw me another round
Ya you, simpathise your own enemy

Your life,
Vital function of this machine keep those insides
Oh, keep those insides clean

Wash off this blood
And convince us that it knows how to love
Hand in glove, hand in glove

Wash this down
Throw me another round
Ya you, simpathise your own enemy

2. Saltwater

To the coast so that I can sink
Into this ocean so that I can drink
All the salt water left in the world
Bring pain to these wounds,
Bring this mouth to it's word

Salt water fill my sea
Keep me safe ya, keep me safe
Like miles, between you and me
Keep me safe ya, keep me safe

3. Off the Wagon

Wake up
Hungry again
With tired bones that no longer defend

Innocent eyes
Skin still untouched
Slow beating heart that still beats in the dark

If I let go and if I don't try
If I don't live, and then I just die
If I let go and if I don't try
What it is to live, what it is to die

Wake up
Bored and confused
With tired eyes, worn out shoes

We were just young, skin still untouched
Slow beating heart that still beats in the dark

If I let go and if I don't try
If I don't live, and then I just die
If I let go and if I don't try
What it is to live, what it is to die

4. Singing Silently

Gather all the people that you can bring
And I will find all the pain I know how to sing
Play my song until I break this thing

You're just dancing, not listening
And I'm just talking, not thinking
Stop a lie from always winning

Tonight I played, the same old crowd
And sang the same old words that I'm allowed
Tonight I played, to innocent kids
And told the same old lies their parents did

This is a gesture, not an action
And we aren't the masses, we're a faction
No revolution, just reaction

Think I can imagine where we're suppose to be
Ten hour workweek, council run economy
Stand in the back and sing silently

Tonight I played, the same old crowd
And sang the same old words that I'm allowed
Tonight I played, to innocent kids
And told the same old lies their parents did

Think I can imagine where we're suppose to be
Ten hour workweek, council run economy
Stand in the back and sing silently
Like a coward singing silently
