Track Name: BETTER TIMES - If Not Us
IF NOT US THEN WHO?
IF NOT NOW THEN WHEN?
Track Name: BETTER TIMES - Shoes to Fill
EVERY WORLD I'VE EVER SAID
YOU'VE HERD A MILLION TIMES BEFORE.
BUT ALL THE DREAMS I'VE EVER DREAMT
HAVE NEVER MATTERED MORE.
I'M SEARCHING FOR SOME COURAGE
TO KEEP MY HEAD ON STRAIGHT.
I'M WORKING UP AN APPETITE
FOR ALL THAT'S ON MY PLATE.
ELUSIVE MOTIVATION.
IT IS SO HARD TO FIND.
SOMETIMES THE BIGGEST SHOES TO FILL
ARE THE ONES THAT ARE MINE.
I'LL RAISE MY FIST AND RAISE MY VOICE
REGARDLESS OF WHO'S AROUND.
I'M A BROKEN RECORD, TRIED AND TRUE
BUT AT LEAST I'M MAKING A SOUND.
Track Name: BETTER TIMES - Steel Toed Youth
I DON'T DRINK
I DON'T SMOKE
MY LIFE IS NOT A FUCKING JOKE
STEEL TOED YOUTH
Track Name: BETTER TIMES - We Get It
I'M NOT INTERESTED IN YOUR OPINION
AND I'M NOT SORRY THAT I CAN'T RELATE.
DROWNING IN FILTH, YOUR SINKING NOT SWIMMING
SHIT-EATING GRIN AS YOU WITHER AWAY.
TEENAGE COKE FIEND
WE GET IT
BROADCAST YOUR DEPRAVITY
WE GET IT
THE WORLD ISN'T QUITE ENOUGH WHEN
YOU'RE HELL BENT ON NOTHING AT ALL.
YOU'VE LINED UP YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS SO
THEY CAN WATCH YOU FALL.
TEENAGE COKE FIEND
WE GET IT
YOU WANT EVERYONE TO SEE
WE GET IT
WE GET IT
Track Name: BETTER TIMES - Sidelong Glances
SCREAMING FOR UNITY,
WE SAY WE'RE ALL THE SAME,
BUT WE'RE SO QUICK TO POINT OUT
THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN.
THEY SEE THE LOOKS WE GIVE,
THEY HEAR THE JOKES WE MAKE.
WHAT KIND OF SCENE DO WE WANT TO HAVE,
PUSHING EVERYONE AWAY?
SCREAMING FOR UNITY,
WE SAY WE'RE ALL THE SAME,
BUT WE'RE SO QUICK TO POINT IT OUT
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN.
IF WE'RE STRIVING FOR RESPECT
BROTHER / SISTER HOOD AS OUR GOAL
WE CAN'T AFFORD TO TREAT OTHERS
AS A SECOND-CLASS SPECTACLE
NO MORE SIDELONG GLANCES
FUCK YOUR SIDELONG GLANCES
Track Name: BETTER TIMES - Passing Phase
YOU'RE 0 FOR 2,
I KNEW YOU'D NEVER LAST.
STARING AT THE GROUND
AS YOU'RE TRUDGING THROUGH THE PAST.
I'M CUTTING YOU OFF,
YOUR FRIENDSHIP IS USELESS.
YOU WANT CHANGE
BUT YOU'VE GOT NOTHING BUT EXCUSES.
I SEE YOU KNOW
IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT.
I'M OVER ALL THIS,
IT'S NOT WORTH THE FIGHT.
YOU'RE NOT THE SAME PERSON
YOU WERE LAST WEEK,
SO KEEP IT TO YOURSELF
BECAUSE YOUR TALK IS CHEAP.
Track Name: BETTER TIMES - It's okay Not to Think
THE APATHY,
IT IS SO FUCKING SICKENING.
YOU GO TO WORK, GO TO SLEEP
AND IN BETWEEN YOU WATCH TV.
MINDLESS ENTERTAINMENT
TO FILL THE MINDLESS DAYS.
WHEN IT COMES TO REAL - WORLD ISSUES
YOU SAY YOU "CAN'T RELATE".
WE'RE KNEE- DEEP IN A RECESSION
AND A LEFT/RIGHT WING SOCIAL WAR,
YET YOU'RE MORE ABSORBED BY FASHION
AND CLOWNS IN THE JERSEY SHORE.
BE WHAT YOU WANT
JUST DON'T BE INDIFFERENT.
