Everyone I see runs 100 miles an hour Living like there's no tomorrow But me I still have time to borrow I often think too much what happened yesterday? And how we used to run and play Now I don't see anything I wish we could go back to the starting line Could we turn back time? And if we could I'd see more sights Try to live a little Maybe pick some fights And maybe I could learn to be not so shy would you agree? And maybe then I'd come to know a life more dangerous and not so slow Everyone it seems runs 100 miles an hour Living like their heads on fire You'd think their life's about to expire But I prefer life in the slower driving lane I'm not in any rush to pain There's no desire to go insane I wish we could go back to the starting line Could we turn back time? And if we could I'd see more sights Try to live a little Maybe pick some fights And maybe I could learn to be not so shy would you agree? And maybe then I'd come to know a life more dangerous and not so slow

Music 03:14
We don't have time no more It's all just now a chore We shrivel up inside Now let's divorce this bride You used to be my love Was all I could think of You turned your back on me Now it's the end I see We thought we could change the whole world oh (1, 2, 3, 4, open up another door) If I was young once more I'd find myself a corner store that sells warnings You win some and you lose some yeah that's life don't think too hard it's no mystery Don't mean to be a bore and talk of things before you even knew my name Cos now I'm not the same My God how life can change What once was known is strange We thought we knew the way but now we've gone astray We thought we could change the whole world oh (5, 6, 7, 8, leave nothing up to fate) If I was young once more I'd find myself a corner store that sells warnings You win some and you lose some yeah that's life don't think too hard it's no mystery (Music you were my loving mistress, you always gave me my assistance) Each time you're burned there's a lesson to be learned Don't live in the skies, it's your life to realize A blink of the eye and it's your time to die Don't wait until your old Don't let your heart get cold
3.
Give me fun and excitement Nothing else will do Give me something that I've never had And we can start talking me and you Oh, you must love me so Cos I'm, I'm damaged goods And I've never been treated like I should So tell me are you up for the task to love me? Is that too much to ask? I'm out looking for my perfect match Smart, rich, and beautiful with a great personality Come on tell me is that really too much to ask? I'm willing to pay the price of love with my $40 monthly fee Oh, I must love you so Cos I, I'm insecure And I, I'm not really sure what I really want out of life So go on and make your move and decide are you for me? (Are you for me?) A human race too neurotic to love each other Too afraid of what we might do to one another Access our lives at the push of a button And I can say our society is all or nothing yeah What will future people say about us? Will it be great men and women or narcissistic dreamers? Woah, God only knows Yeah, 21st century woes

Give In 02:46
Come now let me take you over, give in to the feeling Don't you try to fight it, you know that you're excited for it Let's set these plans in motion Don't let your emotions fool you If you're the judge please grant me pardon All my sins must be discarded A man can't be held for matters of the heart Let's not waste our charms Time to raise the alarms To hell with all that cat and mouse let's do each other some harm You see I feel something inside that screams to be alive, lust in overdrive I'm about to lose my control I set my sights, you're my goal A sleepless night sounds just right, yeah...

Immediacy 03:02
Keep running, heart's pumping on They'll catch you, then you'll be gone Don't turn back, embrace the night What they fear is you were right There's not a thing you've learned, oh It's something I've confirmed, yeah Let's start a new day here, ah This time forget your fears, oh Keep fighting, it's going to break This fever, was always fake Placebos drown in your mind Don't save them, leave them behind (Keep fighting, keep running...) There's not a thing you've learned, oh It's something I've confirmed, yeah Let's start a new day here, ah This time forget your fears, oh

Feeling a fool, just for feeling I'm all aglow, my heart's to the ceiling God bless you, all the lonely God bless you, the one and only It's funny how I want to be with my friends But I really want these times to never end A strange psychosis has come over me My minds in mitosis, a lonesome bigotry I want to be both near you and far at the same time But I think I'll settle for my isolated prime Feeling a fool, but I'm not squealing I love to be alone, it can be so revealing God bless me for my providence God bless you for your cognizance This kind of life is so bittersweet And it shines a light on the homeless heartbeat (Don't give in just keep on trying This recluse is home, it's so satisfying) A strange psychosis has come over me My minds in mitosis, a lonesome bigotry I want to be both near you and far at the same time But I think I'll settle for my isolated prime

One to Five 03:31
One to five baby, five to one Everyone here meets the sum I'm not your idol, I'm not rock 'n roll I'm just a soldier in my hole Semper fi, do or die Don't talk back and don't ask why One to five baby, five to one We won't stop here til we're done We don't take prisoners, we're killer teens Cos the man will defend our means Semper fi, do or die Don't talk back and don't ask why It's a bombers moon, oh tonight Pick your targets, check your sights Semper fi, do don't die Don't talk back and don't you cry It's a bombers moon, oh tonight Pick your targets, check your sights

Modern Life 03:27
Welcome to your life here, no way to hide or disappear We got your number, you're going to be the hunted not the hunter Here everyone is lonely Embrace the warmth you're not the only psycho, psychopath in town oh no Can't shake this feeling, the truth is revealing oh I want to turn and run, I want to turn and run Cos there's no place like home, home All my pictures there, show society on the edge of a knife I call it modern life Welcome to your nightmare, no point in saying a prayer Everything's out of your control, it's in the hands of those with the big bankrolls But oh don't you worry, I'll fix you up in a hurry I'll get you riches, you just pay me interest Can't shake this feeling, the truth is revealing oh I want to turn and run, I want to turn and run Cos there's no place like home, home All my pictures there, show society on the edge of a knife I call it modern life Welcome to your life here, no way to hide or disappear I got your number, you're going to be the hunted not the hunter Don't be so lonely Embrace the warmth you're not the only psycho, psychopath in town

2,000 years ago Rome was kicking ass, they ran this show Wind up the clock and now you see the kids who all run this block America is now, we are a land both free and proud But things aren't the same, how did we let this place become insane? You see my heartache, you're not sorry, is this really the end? Time's been wasted, it's an understatement, cos it's all we really have No sense in hiding from it all, our time is flying on I pledge allegiance to a people who have lost their way They're too fat and happy, complacent, yeah they're drunk on life all day Handouts seem to be the fabric of society Money for nothing, a dime a dozen, third world royalty You see my heartache, you're not sorry, is this really the end? Time's been wasted, it's an understatement, cos it's all we really have No sense in hiding from it all, our time is flying on You see the heartache, you're not sorry, is this really the end? Time's been wasted, it's an understatement, cos it's all we really have

Status Quo 03:07
I kind of like it, everyone's my sidekick I don't see no reason to change the way I feel inside I'm easy, feeling kinda sleazy Don't you try to stop me if I try to run away C'est la vie, c'est la vie, yes that's all I got Let's start some fires We're guns for hire Let's put on a show Tear down the status quo Don't sweat those people always trying to weasel in everybody's business I think they really got no kind of life yeah Clinging on to strife yeah Don't give them no reason to change the way you feel inside C'est la vie, c'est la vie, yes that's all I got Let's start some fires We're guns for hire Let's put on a show Tear down the status quo Status quo...

Look at the people, all of the people Some of them honest, some of them evil There goes the tyrants, their lust for violence They think they're evolution's finest It's so clear, we're the best and worst things here Look at our world dear, a place that's so fair Yet it's so fragile, we really must take care There's no excuses for our abuses The earth is violent but we're far worse I fear It's so clear, we're the best and worst things here Throughout time here we must all bear the crosses of all our forefathers Hopefully enlighten, not move to frighten our children from their growth Willfully inspire, yes we are the sires of progress as we know Look at the people, all of the people Some of them honest, some of them evil Look at the people, all of the people Despite some feelings we all are equal
