Track Name: Crime Alley
If you're looking for justice,

You won't find it here.

Yeah it's wicked and lawless,

It's what you feared.

In the land of the living,

Through the eyes of the dead,

These streets will run blood red.

You're in the wrong place,

At the wrong time,

A wrong turn,

And you're mine.



Right here,

This is crime alley.

Yeah it's not much,

But we call it home.

Out here you're as good as dead.



Then your loved will come looking,

Find a tag on your toe,

Body bag for your pieces though.

White chalk line silhouettes

On the pavement tonight.

Better hope that you're ready for war

Because you found a fight.



Right here,

This is crime alley.

Yeah it's not much,

But we call it home.

Out here you're as good as dead.



Your options are quickly running out.

So don't make a sound.



Right here,

This is crime alley.

Yeah it's not much,

But we call it home.

Out here you're as good as dead,

So just run on home.
Track Name: Going Down
We were born without hooks.

We grew tired and've long outgrown this.

While you been lost in the book,

I found my own forgiveness.

And I'm giving it back.



No fire,

No brimstone,

No castle up in the clouds,

No heathens,

Neither demons to tempt you,

Nor angels to save.



So you're afraid of the dark?

You'd almost die for light.

Left alone with that heart,

I'd probably have to take my life.

I'm taking it back.



No fire,

No brimstone,

No castle up in the clouds,

No heathens,

Neither demons to tempt you,

Nor angels to save.



I don't see it.

I don't believe it.

I guess I'm going down.

Hell yes,

I'm going down.
Track Name: Hangman
I know that you're oh so sick of

being mistreated, my friend.

No shit. Yeah, you know how to pick 'em.

Now you're right back hurting again.

I'm the type to believe that might be

Something to consider at least.

Damn right, but apparently I

Am not the only one that's dying to see it.

Yeah.



You say you're not a blind man,

You don't see what everybody sees.

Hanging 'round with the hang man,

you'll be hanging up on one of his trees.



By the time that you've learned your lesson,

you'll be swinging by your neck from a rope.

Wanna know what you been missin'?

They think that you're a god damn joke.

No, everyone knows that you're a god damn joke.



You say you're not a blind man,

You don't see what everybody sees.

Hanging 'round with the hang man,

you'll be hanging up on one of his trees.

And I hope that view is just as good

as the one you leave me.



You say you're not a blind man,

You don't see what everybody sees.

Hanging 'round with the hang man,

you'll be hanging up on one of his trees.
Track Name: John Goner
There was a day when all we feared

Were wicked men whose conscious never cleared.

Enemies no longer born,

Assembly lines put malice at their core.



We're only fighting for our lives.

So choose today to join the brave.

Only cowards run away.



We are the victims of a crime

Committed by our progress over time.

It's on the line.

Finders keepers, takers take.

But we will have no fate but what we make.

Now our world is at stake.



We're only fighting for our lives.

So choose today to join the brave.

Only cowards run away.

We breathe in blackened dirty skies,

If still you try to compromise,

you're running, running, running, from the truth.



(Stand up)

We're not running away

They will rue the day

We'll find a way



(It's just our lives so nevermind)

What a worthy fate to meet

Destroyed by that

Which we would dare create.

We build in our own image,

So the threat is worse

Than we have ever known.



We're only fighting for our lives.

So choose today to join the brave.

Only cowards run away.

We breathe in blackened dirty skies,

If still you try to compromise,

you're running, running, running...

Only cowards run away.
Track Name: Animals
What's so incorrigible within us?

We're just more dangerous.

At heart we're animals you can't trust.

We're just more dangerous.

Your silent street seems safe,

You're sound asleep until

The night you're wide awake

Because it can't be killed.



I know you feel something inside of you.

It scratches and claws and it eats at you.

So show your animal.



And you say

You don't have the slightest clue and that's okay

As long as you don't play like

You're not crazed,

A rabid wolf is just a breathe away.

And you can try to stay

In your cage, it's made of flesh and bone

It's not that safe, in spite of everything

But in this place...

It couldn't hold you if you tried to escape.



I know you feel something inside of you.

It scratches and claws and it eats at you.

So show your animal.



I know you feel something inside of you.

It scratches and claws and it eats at you.

So what's eating you?

(Animals)

And now there's nothing that's left but the taste,

We're human and it's a race

To show your animal.
