Track Name: Exit Through The Gift Shop
I know, You think
You always know what's best
You think you're better than the rest

Don't try, to change me
Your mistakes are discrete
You'll never ever admit defeat

I hope your thoughts are better than your actions
Ther'll come a day when you know of satisfaction
Look in the mirror so it's clearer that you're not alone
I'd figure i would let you know

You Fall asleep with one eye open you'll never know what will happen in the next year
I'll stay awake and never faulter whoa whoa whoa take this message as a souvenir

People tell me, what it's like to taste some freedom
I turn back cause I don't need them
Failed from the start, things just drift apart
now understand, all your sorrows gone with a sleight of hand

You always thought you were the main attraction
bargain with the devil it's a fatal transaction
Look in the mirror so it's clearer that you're not alone
I'd figure i would let you know

You Fall asleep with one eye open you'll never know what will happen in the next year
I'll stay awake and never faulter whoa whoa whoa take this message as a souvenir
And I will never second guess, the best, or my best friends
I'll stay awake and never faulter whoa whoa whoa take this message as a souvenir

I'll never Change, I'll always stay the same
And I'm to blame, I've already lost this game
Track Name: If Ska's Soooooo Good, Then Where's The Drop? #YoSkrillDropItHard
It's not cool to play ska music because the third wave is done
playing with horns and checkerboard and skipping around isn't fun
Reel big fish and Less than jake should have split years ago
But no, they insist on candy coated shit, and it's lame to play ska shows

Don't you know that ska is dead
and its not coming back
That shit is gone for good
so just sit back and relax
Because ska musics dead
And it may be such a dread
but that music is for those
Who are crazy in their head
Track Name: All's Well That Ends Well
From the moment when you first said hi
i never wanted you leaving my life
and every moment it was you and me
was saving me from my tragedy
called life! You made things great!
We were destined, we were fate
you could always put a smile on my face
no matter how shitty seemed the case

But then you got bored of me
not after too long
you moved on to track two
and i was stuck singing the same song
i completely stopped existing
fading from your memory
i never understood
how could this be?

You fell like an angel
down into this world
you picked up my entire life
because you're one special girl
and all the times it was you and me
things went pretty swell
But then you had to go and leave
All's well that ends well

well you meant every thing to me
i guess i meant nothing to you
i guess love is where we can't agree
cause your feelings aren't ever true
I don't need any lying ways
i better without a broken heart
i'm done wishing you could have stayed
i wish i never met you in the start

love came, and love had conquered
it never changes
it's all the same, it doesn't matter
THIS WILL END RIGHT NOOOWWWWW

You fell like an angel
down into this world
you picked up my entire life
because you're one special girl
But then you had to fuck me over
things weren't all that swell
and now you've come crawling back
All's well that ends well
Fuck you

All's well that ends well
Fuck you

All's well that ends well

FUUUUCK YOU
BITCH
Track Name: Mr. Mad Hatter
You sit at home and you start to think
nothings wrong so I guess you'll stay the same
but your other half starts to wonder, how you'll be if you try a bit harder

Things start to slip away, but don't give up cause it's easier said then done
your life has gone astray, it's not too late to look the other way

Nothings wrong and I'm okay
But I can't help think, my life has gone the wrong way

Back when I was sixteen, life was great cause I had all the answers
Now life couldn't be less fair and I don't care cause I know it doesn't matter
I'm not sane in the head, but that's okay call me Mr. Mad Hatter
Now life couldn't be less fair and I don't care cause I know it doesn't matter

I'm out of bed now, I keep it discrete, the thought of doing something right sounds so lame to me
But who's to blame, I've already lost this game and so I'm pissed and it does show
ready to attack mode, call all my friends so we can start a band though
I don't think that we can be unique, cause all the other bands just sound so sweet

Nothings wrong and I'm okay
But I can't help think, my life has gone the wrong way

Back when I was sixteen, life was great cause I had all the answers
Now life couldn't be less fair and I don't care cause I know it doesn't matter
I'm not sane in the head, but that's okay call me Mr. Mad Hatter
Now life couldn't be less fair and I don't care cause I know it doesn't matter

HORN BREAK!

Nothings wrong and I'm okay
But I can't help think, my life has gone the wrong way

Back when I was sixteen, life was great cause I had all the answers
Now life couldn't be less fair and I don't care cause I know it doesn't matter

I don't care cause I know it doesn't matter x2
But that's okay call me Mr. Mad Hatter x2
I don't care cause I know it doesn't matterx2
Track Name: Take Me Back To Yesterday
I remember back in those days
where everything we had was made
and we never had a single care in this world

Just sit back and watch TV
Living life when life was free
Yeah those are days that I miss in this world

Whatever happen to the way things used to be?
when living life was fun and so care free
That was the time, man, I really miss those days
I remember so clearly, like it was yesterday

Do this, do that, get off my back
I’m sick of hearing all this crap
I don’t think I can take one more day of this

When did I have to meet
all these responsibilities
Someone come and take me to the days I miss

Do this, do that, get off my back
I’m sick of hearing all this crap
I don’t think I can take not one more day

when did I have to meet
so many responsibilities
Someone come and take me back to yesterday.

And now I work that 9 to 5
and I never have the god damn time
to do all the things that I love to do

Can’t even find time to sleep
cause payin’ rent sure aint cheap
just take me back to yesterday, to me and you

-bridge-
what ever happened to sitting back all day long?
Just playin’ games, chillin out, and singing songs
That was the time, man, I really miss those days
I remember so clearly, like it was yesterday
Track Name: Mango Smoothie Girl
C'mon baby don't you worry, just skank with me
Just enjoy the finer things in life, like this mango smoothie, girl
No need to stress all the things in life. Just enjoy today
baby baby baby no need to fret. Just skank your problems away
can't you see yesterday is done, the past is in the past
learn to forget all that's been done cause life moves way to fast
sit back, relax, enjoy the view. And seize the day
Just let all of your worries drift away
Track Name: Ryan Feller's Day Off!
I get up
To someone’s cruel joke
that’s my reality
And I stand up
and face all of their bullshit
mediocrity
I was voted most likely
for no one to care about me
in high school
And I never got the date to the dance
or scored the winning point, I never got the chance
To be somebody
I never got the chance in high school
I was always the best part of a running joke
I never got the chance to be cool
Slap a smile on my face, when deep down inside I felt broke

I was scared of my friends
End up using me in the end
Yeah, they never had my back
They would always end up hating me
And who I’d turn out to be
And things would just end like that

Reality
and what it’s done to me
I need to breathe
and get away from it
all Today
things will go my way
It’s safe to say
today is my day off!

-Verse 2-
There’s a ska show tonight
for once I don’t have to give a shit
just let it go and jump in the pit

And everything just feels alright
Skankin’ with the friends I’ve met
So many shows and no regrets

For once I’m on top of the world
and skankin’ with that pretty girl
they played that last song just for me

I jumped off stage into the crowd
then I threw down when the music got loud
This is too good for reality

-Chorus-
Reality
and what it’s done to me
I need to breathe
and get away from it
all Today
things will go my way
It’s safe to say
today is my day off!
Track Name: Hometown Rival
Frustration, location, our lives are slowly changing

Temptation, salvation, lost souls across the nation

Could our hometown still be a part of us, it's safe to say that through the days to our dismay, its our time to get away

But are we brave enough, to move along? Well I'd like to think I'm far from wrong

These days just fade away, these years put to replay
Well I'll leave another day

It's your survival, while it's our hometown rival

Make your arrival, or just go through the cycle

Mutation, migration we're losing our foundation

Relation, creation, down here we need translation

Could our hometown still be a part of us, it's safe to say that through the days to our dismay, its our time to get away

What keeps me strong, are things that don't belong
Who knows what's right from wrong?

These days just fade away, these years put to replay,
I'll leave another day

It's your survival, while it's our hometown rival

Make your arrival, or just go through the cycle
