Track Name: Broken Man
Broken Man

The devil has a name and it’s survival of the fittest
I learned the hard way so get wise or get skinned

I didn’t see the light when they hit me from behind
All I saw was darkness and it lasted for a second
Or forever, who knows
Am I dead

I was down on the ground when the light came back on
They were still trying to strike the fatal blow

I rose and I fought back even though my head was cracked
They both fled like the cowards that they were

It would be too easy to quit with all I’ve been through
I must reinvent myself has a broken man
Track Name: Let's Not Take Any Chances
Let’s Not Take Any Chances


The girl I want doesn’t want me
And the girl who wants me well I don’t want her

Baby, please please me
Now baby please please me
I’m playing a game that I can’t win
There’s rarely any comfort at all

So baby please please me
Now baby please please me

The girl I want doesn’t want me
And the girl who wants me well I don’t want her

So baby please please me
Now baby please please me
Life is so short, now baby please please me

Let’s not take any chances
Because we might be dead tomorrow night
So baby please please me
Now baby please please me
Now baby please please me
Track Name: Stop Wasting Your Talents
Stop Wasting Your Talents

Oh I’m down and out
You will have to fish me out of this stagnation
Fish me out and I shall flourish for you
Track Name: I Wrote You A Love Song
I Wrote You a Love Song


I cried all day
And I drank all night

Today you seem so far away
Just yesterday you were under my skin

I never drink alone
Except when I long for you

I wrote you a love song
But I can’t sing it anymore

You started a fire
Please don’t let it die

I wrote you a love song
But I can’t sing it anymore
Track Name: Don't Let It Stop
Don’t Let It Stop

Stop fighting against the wind
Let it push you instead
Whatever you do never give up
Your turn is right around the next corner
So never give up

I know, I almost did
And a good friend of mine did
And you never get over that

You must believe that if you do good, you’ll get good
Take care of people instead of a cat or a dog
I don’t believe in luck at all
Don’t let the spectacle fool you

Whatever you do, don’t let it stop
Don’t let it stop
Track Name: Iron Law of Wages
Iron Law of Wages


Flags everywhere
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to run

In a war I’m your spy
You are my secret weapon
You are my secret weapon

In the iron law of wages
You work to live, live to work
And you raise your children to do the same
And you raise your kids to do the same

Just so you can rot in a retirement home
High on pills with your door locked
We must put an end to this unwritten law
The iron law of wages must fall

I don’t want to be part of this
Race of laborers
Shoot me now or let me go, shoot me now or let me be
Shoot me now or let me go
Track Name: Revolutionary Path
Revolutionary Path


I must say you chose poorly
I would’ve given you true love
But it’s not too late

You chose the money and the happy
But you’re not to blame

I chose the battle and the uncertainty
Don’t let me fight alone

It’s never gonna be easy
But it’s never gonna be boring

You’ll never live in luxury
But I’ll never take you for granted

Every day you’ll make a choice
Every day you’ll be the change
That you wanna see
That you wanna be

I don’t comply
I won’t comply
Track Name: You're Living A Lie
You’re Living a Lie


I’ll bring you down
And I’ll feed my friends
I’ll bring you down
And I’ll feed myself
Even if it’s the last thing that I do

Live and let live but you’re living a lie

Wake the fuck up and read Guy Debord
Make sure it’s not the last thing that you do
Track Name: Love Song
Love Song

Every human is flawed
So don’t be too hard on yourself

You make me want to live
You make me want to be a better man

I hope I never hurt you
I hope you never hurt me

I respect you and I love you
I’m ready to love or to hurt

I’ll take my chances like I always do
I want to love without holding back
I want to love you without holding back
I want to love you without never holding back
