Track Name: The (d)Evolution of (wo)Man
Its nice to see that some things never change
This world is unpredictable but some things stay the same
Like that I can always count on you to fill me with disgust
You're burning down your bridges and breaking walls of trust

WHEN WILL YOU LEARN to have some self respect?
WHY MUST YOU GIVE in to your weakness?

Its sad to see that some people don't care
Its ok to quit your job when your baby's on welfare
You always play the victim, like your life's so hard
If you'd stop to look you'd see its you who dealt your cards

WHEN WILL YOU LEARN to have some self respect?
WHY MUST YOU GIVE in to your weakness?

Nobody said life was easy
But you make it harder on yourself
Track Name: Shark Attack!!!
You live your life by the book
ALWAYS TRYING TO SCORE
Judging each girl by how she looks
ALWAYS WANTING MORE
But you'll never find what you're looking for
Line them up and send them out the door
You'll never find what you're...

BAM!

You spout out every cheesy line
ALWAYS TRYING TO SCORE
You swear it works every time
ALWAYS WANTING MORE
But you'll never find what you're looking for

Line them up and send them out the door
You'll never find what you're...

Shark Attack!
Track Name: Stranded
Carried by frost bitten toes
We trudge on through the snow
With no hope we carry on
Will anyone even know we're gone?

Stranded a thousand miles from home
We're desperate and alone
We must stay alive
Consume those who don't survive

We've stained the snow with these sins
The brightest white to a dark crimson
As our lives follow the setting sun
Will we be forgiven for what we've done?

Stranded a thousand miles from home
We're desperate and alone
We must stay alive
Consume those who don't survive

WE'VE STAINED THE SNOW WITH OUR SINS
Track Name: Centralia
Watch where you step
the Earth might crumble
beneath your feet
Steam, gas and smoke
Rise up from the street
This once was your home
Now it is your Hell

How long will this burn?
How long can we survive?
Will it ever die?
What will become of this place?

How can we live?
How can we breathe?
Living in this smoke filled city?

HOW CAN WE LIVE?
HOW CAN WE BREATHE?

The fire's burning under our feet
Like hell is rising
How long will this burn?
How can we survive?
It will never die.
It will never die!
It will never die!
It will never die!
It will never die!
It will never die!
It will never die!
It will never die!
