Track Name: Release the Beast
If the world's going to see
what the world has to be
if it wants to be free
it must release the beast.

It's not enough to just work
Your reality's been plagiarized
A flimsy copy wrought out
from the minds of elites.
It's revolution time.

If the world's going to see
what the world has to be
if it wants to be free
it must release the beast.

Indoctrinated in the classroom
Taught to value wealth
Rewarded with a life of servitude
Evolve or fail

If the world's going to see
what the world has to be
if it wants to be free
it must release the beast.

I will not admire the rich
Higher character's further down the ladder

They'll legislate our culture away
Introduce us to the Fourth Reich
Vote to revolt

If the world's going to see
what the world has to be
if it wants to be free
it must release the beast.
Track Name: Thompson's Beat
Defined over time
as a house with a lawn and a dog
Married with two kids
but only if you're straight enough to fake it

We were sold a lot of nonsense
over a white picket fence
Make us fight over dollars and cents
Laugh at our resistance

I'm a paycheck away from bankruptcy
And I'm one bad day from being out on the street
Spent 25K on a Master's degree
Making eleven bills an hour doing data entry

Here's to the death of the American dream
Never really quite what it seemed
Raise a glass
Here's to the death of the American dream

Designed over time
To inflict debt and drag us down
Slavery with benefits
and lots of stuff to watch on TV

I'm not my credit rating
My industry's creating
Let's see them run and panicking
to the sound of our awakening

I'm a paycheck away from bankruptcy
And I'm one bad day from being out on the street
Spent 25K on a Master's degree
Making eleven bills an hour doing data entry

Here's to the death of the American dream
Never really quite what it seemed
Raise a glass
Here's to the death of the American dream

We need a new dream
'Cause I'm done sleeping

I'm a paycheck away from bankruptcy
And I'm one bad day from being out on the street
Spent 25K on a Master's degree
Making eleven bills an hour doing data entry

Here's to the death of the American dream
Never really quite what it seemed
Raise a glass
Here's to the death of the American dream
Track Name: Club Hell
It's a small club but you can't get in
without the password
Gotta have influence, gotta have cash
Gotta have an old name that was
never white trash

We alter aristocracies
on alternating fantasies
Keep 'em always guessing
while you're alternating

No will to systematize
Reject the status quo
These things cannot happen
until we learn to let go

It's a small club but you can't get in
with just a bank card
Here you're not rich
til you count in the billions,
you're not a success
til the body count's in the millions

We alter aristocracies
on alternating fantasies
Keep 'em always guessing
while you're alternating

No will to systematize
Reject the status quo
These things cannot happen
until we learn to let go

We alter aristocracies
on alternating fantasies
Keep 'em always guessing
while you're alternating
Track Name: a Billion Guns
Here we are at the end of the story
the end of money and the end of history
Seven more years on a fiat currency's
all we have left

It's easy to run when you run the banks
Ignore the warnings, send in the tanks
Take what you can and never say thanks
when it all goes down but

My
My anger
My anger is louder
Louder than a billion guns
Our
Our anger
Our anger is louder
Louder than a billion guns

Gotta get our guns by 2021
or it's make-shift molotovs on the run
Undemocratize a disarmed nation
'cause that's the plan, kid

Listen to the rage that's building
Can you afford the silence of a billion dying
off? It's madness in the making
And it's all or no one

My
My anger
My anger is louder
Louder than a billion guns
Our
Our anger
Our anger is louder
Louder than a billion guns

I'll be alive to see it
To see the end come down like fireballs of money
I'll be alive to see you running away from me

That's the plan now

My
My anger
My anger is louder
Louder than a billion guns
Our
Our anger
Our anger is louder
Louder than a billion guns
