Track Name: 5 Yr. Plan
My friends look out for me like family
My mom's been struggeling since I was three
My friend's look out for me like family
My mom's been struggeling since I was three
Am I scared, am I pushed, Am I worried?
Another Day, another year so what's the hurry

Here I sit, alone and in despair
The world outside is cold, alone and unfair
No motivation, no college degree
Day to day survival starting to worry me

No goals, no money, no inspiration
My crew, tattoos, that's my only salvation
5 years from now where will I be?
On the same road with no future to no destiny

No ideas and fear is on my mind
Tell me, is my life just a waste of fucking time
Someday maybe I'll find a way
To make all my fears go away
5 years from now where will I be
On the same road with no future to no destiny

My friends look out for me like family
My mom's been struggeling since I was three [x2]
Am I scared, am I pushed, am I worried
Another day, another year so what's the hurry?

Only one love in my life
You know the rest, they never felt so fucking right
There's got to be more, stop procrastination
Like depending on others for touring vacation
5 years from now where will I be
On the same road with no future to no destiny

Another Day, another year, so what's the hurry.
Track Name: Scene Report
Well I woke up with this feeling yesterday
No matter how hard I tried I couldn't say
Where it came from and what it did to me
Like a hole inside too wide and way too deep

But I know
I'm gonna find my way
and I know
I gotta have my say

I hate when I turn on my fucking TV
A newsman's trying hard to explain my scene to me
Hardcore's been my life since way back when
It's my family, my future, my best friend

But I know
I'm gonna find my way
And I know
I gotta have my say

It's not fashion or a TV show
It's my life, It's the only one I know
It's not a new concept on MTV
It's something real beating inside of me

Woke up with this feeling yesterday
No matter how hard I tried I couldn't say
Where it came from and what it did to me
Like a hole inside too wide and way too deep

But I know
I'm gonna find my way
and I know
I gotta have my say
Track Name: Spirit of '84
You can't have me
I won't sign my life away
I'm not even gonna listen
Cause your words are based on lies
The truth escapes you
You put your foot in your mouth
Let me tell you what it's all about

I feel it here
The feeling is real
It's the only thing you can't take away
I feel it here
The feeling won't go
I'm gonna let you know
You can't have it
I wont give it
You can't take it away

Your foolish tounge
Has been divided
Two pths to follow
I'm on the side of the truth
Cause I'm united to something real
Something that you'll never be

I feel it here
The feeling is real
It's the only thing you can't take away
I feel it here
The feeling won't go
I'm gonna let you know
You can't have it
I wont give it
You can't take it away

H2O GO!!

I feel it here
The feeling is real
It's the only thing you can't take away
I feel it here
The feeling won't go
I'm gonna let you know
You can't have it
I wont give it
You can't take it away
Track Name: I Know Why
And so she said to me
I'm leaving, I can't take it anymore
For all that it's worth, I knew that was over
Long before she turned the handle on my door

Cause I can read between the lies
And I can see behind your eyes
All the lies and alibis

And I can understand your mind
I can see through all your lies
All your eyes and alibis

And so it's over as the pictures
From my wallet hit the floor
Well I stand in distrust
Cause I can't believe it's happening
And my head tells me my heart should close the door

Cause I can read between the lines
And I can see behind your eyes
All the lies and alibis

And I can understand your mind
I can see through all your lies
All your lies and alibis

I tried hard to erase
Cause I don't think that I could ever replace it
I think of all the time I wasted
Listening to your lies

And so it's over
As I wipe the visions of you from my mind
Well I don't count for much
Nut I know the next time
Listening to these reasons
Are they truth or alibis?
Now I know why!
Track Name: Gen-Eric
Where were you
You weren't here
I screamed and shouted
But you disappeared
Where is the shoulder that made me cry
You went away but I don't know why

Where, were you?

When I needed somebody to trust
When I needed somebody to stand by
I never wanted all that much
Why did you leave?
Why did you lie?

Where were you?

I used to love you
But I want to pretend
Your fucking game
I won't play again
Where were you?
When I needed somebody to hold
When I needed somebody to love
Track Name: Surrounded
I wrote a story in the book of life today
I turned the page and then I turned and walked away
Cause what I wrote was just symbolic of the time
I've been surrounded by another state of mind
You do this, to gain control
You say that, to make yourself feel whole
You say this, just to be kind
I see it's all just a waste of fucking time!

Sometimes the problems freeze the pen that's in my hand
No rules provided that will make me understand
And then I think about the notes that I just took
I look around, then turn around, then close the book.

Cause I see the writing how it can be
I write this paragraph to tell me that I'm me
All rules provided, symbolic of the time
It keeps me from falling into another state of mind

I do this, to gain control
I do this, to make myself feel whole
I say this, not to be kind
I see it's all just a waste of fucking time!

STIGMA!!
Track Name: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow
I remember all those bands
Preaching with motherfucking X's on their hands
The Youth Of Yesterday, what else can I say
The times have changed and they've faded away

The times have changed and the trends move on
The spirit of youth I still carry on
Close minded attitudes, you know the youth crew
Alienating everyone who didn't think like
who didn't
Act like
Who didn't
Look like you

Here today
And gone tomorrow
Memories Of Yesterday
Leave me in sorrow
Here today
And gone tomorrow
Sincerity? It was only borrowed [Repeat]

Hey but where are they now?
Cause I'm still here and I'm drug free and fucking sincere
Hey but that's okay cause they're out of the scene
They're denying hardcore while they chase the green

You know who you are you insincere,
straight edge last year,
drinkin' a beer,
have no friends,
no heart or soul,
playing the roll,
full of shit.
Before you go waving flags you better know what you stand for.
Track Name: Family Tree
Roots
Don't forget your roots
Don't forget your roots
Don't forget your roots

I was thinking about the good old times
And all the people who helped me survive
Now who the hell knows where I'd be
Without the branches of my family tree

I was thinking about the friends who cared
And all the times that we shared
And if I had the strength to be what I could be
Love and respect to the branches of my tree

Family Tree!!

Roots
Don't forget your roots
Don't forget your roots
Don't forget your roots

I was thinking about the good old times
And all the people who helped me survive
Now who the hell knows where I'd be
Without the branches of my family tree

I was thinking about the times we shared
And all the times I was scared
Living and learning in the NYC
Shout out's go out to my New York Family

Family Tree!

Roots
Don't forget your roots
Don't forget your roots
Don't forget your roots
Track Name: Hi-Lo
Hi-Lo what does it mean
Another word for temperature, followed by degree
I know it may sound simple
But when I look in your eyes
Degrees of seperation is what I find

You lie, I try, you lie, I try!

You lie from the center, distracted by everyone
Cause everything revolves around you
Not saying that I'm better
But when I look in your eyes
Degrees of seperation is what I find

You lie, I try, you lie, I try

Time's up, I won't lie
Your whole life is a fuckin' lie
You fake, but me I stay true
Flags up, wave 'em high
The grass is greener, on the other side
My mistake was ever meeting you

Hi-Lo what does it mean
Another word for temperature, followed by degree
I know it may sound simple
But when I look in your eyes
Degrees of seperation is what I find

You lie, I try, you lie, I try
Track Name: My Curse
Too many questions
But no one seems to know
The value of the answers
Too many fingers and all pointed back at me
Is it because I was the one who pointed mine first?
I see a problem but maybe it's part of me
Excuses without reasons
I have a conscious inspiring to be
More than a thought that's burning deep inside of me

I see a doorway and I fumble for a key
How many turns until it opens?
And what will it reveal?
I'm at the center, or is it left of me
When will it open?

On the surface, the smile evades the truth
The words are even cheaper
I ask for something impossible to give
And sit back and watch it all go
