Neocon

length: 1:09

we are strong
we are right
we won't be pushed aside
we'll go on
we will fight
we will not compromise
we will never lose to you
we will never lose to you
we will never lose to you
we will never lose to you

The Noose

length: 3:21
Well our souls are all mistaken in the same misguided way
We all end up forsaken, we're just choosing our own way
The future now incinerates before our very eyes
And leaves us with emptiness of no more tries

Well our visions of glory have spiraled down the drain
The best of our intentions come crashing down in flames
The depths of our despair we are unable to contain
It's shallow living

The noose is falling
And all my friends are crawling
The noose is falling
And enemies are rising
A truth appalling
Our mak'r comes a calling
The noose is falling
And enemies are rising

Well the tracers from yesteryear are burning in the dust
Your bruises are reminders of naivete and trust
You're only feeling stronger cause your body's getting numb
Now I lay you down
Put the coins in your eyes
And blow the candles out

The noose is falling
And all my friends are crawling
The noose is falling
And enemies are rising
A truth appalling
Our mak'r comes a calling
The noose is falling
And enemies are rising
(2x)

No more!
No more!
Nothing!

No more!
No more!
Ever!
No!
More!
No!
More!

The noose is falling
And all my friends are crawling
The noose is falling
And enemies are rising
A truth appalling
Our mak'r comes a calling
The noose is falling
And enemies are rising

The noose is falling
And all my friends are crawling
The noose is falling
And enemies are rising

Long Way Home

length: 2:26
mixer: Brendan O’Brien
I'm driving down a dusty road
I've got nowhere to go
No place that I can call my own
On and on this road is burning

I'm leaving all this crap behind
The past is gone, the future's blind
Don't care how long it takes this time
On and on I'll take the long way home

The long way home
The long way home
If it's for me it's on the way home

Like fragments of a broken mind
I splinter by my own design
This search is not a waste of time
On and on this road keeps burning

My hands are glued upon the wheel
The road ahead is all I feel
The only thing left that's real
On and on I'll take this long way home

The long way home
The long way home
I will go alone
I will go and find it on my own

What lies ahead
You cannot find for me
On and on I'll take the long way home

The long way home
The long way home
If it's for me it's on the way home

The long way home
The long way home
I will go alone
I will go and find it on my own

Hit That Lyrics

The winds of fortune
Don't blow the same
She had to get out
And make a change
She had a kid now
But much too young
That baby daddy's out having fun

He's saying
I'm on a roll
With all the girls I know
His baby's momma
She ain't so slow
He's saying
I'm on a roll
With all the girls I know
I know you wanna hit that
I know you wanna hit that hit that
All the world is gettin' with, I say
Consequences are a lot, but hey
That's the way it
That's the way things go

What was a family
Is now a shell
We're raising kids now
Who raise themselves
Sex is a weapon
It's like a drug
It gets him right into that grave that he just dug

She's saying
I'm on the run
I'm chasing guys for fun
Her baby's daddy
It ain't his only one
She's saying
I'm on the run
I'm chasing guys for fun
I know you wanna hit that
I know you wanna hit that hit that
Everybody's gettin' with, I say
Consequences are a lot, but hey
That's the way it
That's the way things go

Well it winds up
Broken up
Really such a shame
But why not
Take a chance
Everything's a game
And it don't stop
Hooking up
Nothing's gonna change
The more he's trying
The more he's buying

He says
I'm on a roll
With all the girls I know
His baby's momma
Don't need to know
He's saying
I'm on a roll
With all the girls I know
I know you wanna hit that
I know you wanna hit that hit that
All the world is gettin' with, I say
Consequences are a lot, but hey
That's the way it
That's the way things go

Race Against Myself

length: 3:35
(I Realize)
All I want
All I need
Always lies just out of reach
I've been coming up empty

(I realize)
Run as fast as I can run
Pushed as hard as anyone
Still, There's nothing for me (Oh)

(And I want)
I've tried as hard as I can
(And I need)
I've taken all I can stand
(And I fall)
But I am running a race
Against myself
Against myself, Yeah

(I realize)
Burning out, Strung along
Now my sorrow is my song
My whole world is half hearted

(I realize)
For my pain, I have none
After all is said and done
Now I'm back where I started (Oh)

(And I want)
I've gone as far as I can
(And I need)
I've taken all I can stand
(And I fall)
But I am running a race
Against myself
Against myself, Yeah

Waaaaooooh
Ooooooooooooh

(And I want)
I've tried as hard as I can
(And I need)
I've taken all I can stand
(And I fall)
But I am loosing the race
Against myself
Against myself, Yeah
Against myself

(Can’t Get My) Head Around You

length: 2:15
producer: Brendan O’Brien
mixer: Brendan O’Brien
lyricist: Dexter Holland
composer: Dexter Holland

[Verse 1]
Deep inside your soul there's a hole you don't want to see
Every single day what you say makes no sense to me
Even though I try, I can't get my head around you

Somewhere in the night there's a light in front of me
Heaven up above with a shove, I beg it's me
Even though I try, I fall in the river of you
You've managed to bring me down, too

[Interlude]
All your faking (Get Up, Get Up, Get Up, Get Up)
Shows you're aching (Get Up, Get Up, Get Up)

[Verse 2]
Every single day what you say makes no sense to me
Letting you inside, isn't right, don't mess with me
I never really know what's really going on inside you

[Chorus]
I can't get my head around you

[Interlude]
All your feeding (Get Up, Get Up, Get Up, Get Up)
Shows you're bleeding (Get Up, Get Up, Get Up)

[Bridge]
Deep inside your soul there's a hole you don't want to see
Covering it up like a cut with the likes of me
You know I've really tried, I can't do anymore about you
Yeah, the cut's getting deeper
Yeah, the hill's getting steeper
I guess I'll never know what's really going on inside you

[Chorus] x4

The Worst Hangover Ever

length: 3:01
Went out drinking late last night
I had a blast
But now the morning light has come
And kicked my a__

I've got the worst hangover ever
I'm crawling to the bathroom again
It hurts so bad that I'm never gonna drink again

And by my seventh shot
I was invincible
I would have never thought
I'd be this miserable

I've got the worst hangover ever
I'm rolling back and forth on the bed
I'm worked so bad that I'm never gonna drink again

Won't someone just kill me
And put me out of my misery
I'm making deals with God, I'll do anything
Make it stop please!
Make it stop please!

I've got the worst hangover ever
I'm crawling to the bathroom again
It hurts so bad that I'm never gonna drink again
I'll probably never drink again
I may not ever drink again
At least not 'til next weekend
I'm never gonna drink again

Never Gonna Find Me

length: 2:41
Whaohohohohohohohoh

On a mission started by my own admission,
I will leave you all behind.
By direction I'll create my own protection,
the real me you'll never find.

Aspirations turn to fear and desperation,
Nothing's ever good enough for you,
Burn in sorrow 'cause I see there's no tomorrow,
You'll only seeing what I want you to

Never gonna find me,
Never gonna find me,
Well, way down deep inside there is the real me,
I'm always gonna hide and this is who you'll see.
Never gonna find me,
Never gonna find me,
Well, way down deep inside they haven't found me yet,
I'm always gonna hide and this is who you'll get.

Whaohohohohohohohoh

On a mission to establish my attrition
you may think that you have won.
Your rejection has bought on my introspection,
I'll escape I'll only run.

Accusations may destroy my motivation
I can feel it when you're pushing me.
Burn in sorrow 'cause I see there's no tomorrow,
Only I know which me you'll see.

Never gonna find me,
Never gonna find me,
Well, way down deep inside there is the real me,
I'm always gonna hide and this is who you'll see.
Never gonna find me,
Never gonna find me,
Well, way down deep inside they haven't found me yet,
I'm always gonna hide and this is who you'll get.

Whaohohohohohohohoh

Break away.
Run.
Down inside.
I've got to push it away.
Down.
I did not choose this.
God Dammit!

I don't really know, what I wanna say,
I can't afford the throw, can't make it go away now.
Try to make it through, f___ your decision,
I can feel myself but I'm burning up now.

Whaooh oooh (never gonna find me)
Whaooh Whaooh (never gonna find me)
Whaooh Whaooh (never gonna)
Whaooh Whaooh
Whaooh Whaooh
Whaooh Whaooh

Lightning Rod

length: 3:23
Lightning Rod

I am waiting
On a mountaintop
For the moment that the sky will strike
My apologies
Are forever lost
Soon to ashes in a flash of light

Miles from away from me
Hope is fading soon
Gone forever it's a waste of time
My intentions
Like a sweeter room
Only bring to me a fading light

Locked up forever inside
I look to the stars and ask why
If they could just teach my dark heart to feel
All I've saved - why
Thrown away

I am waning
Like a single bloom
Lost forever in the storm of life
My intentions
Like a sweeter room
Only bring to me a fading light

Locked up forever inside
I look to the stars and ask why
If they could just show these wounds how to heal
Here I am - oh why
My last stand - oh why
And I know For all the rising and falling there's nothing to show

Throw me down

It's been raining
And now I will pay
Woe is come to me

I am the lightning rod

I am waiting
On a mountaintop
Oh above me
He will strike me!

Locked up forever inside
I look to the stars and ask why
If they could just teach my dark heart to feel
All I am - oh why
My last stand - oh why
And I know
For all the rising and falling there's nothing to show

Spare Me the Details

length: 3:27
my girlfriend, my dumb donut
went out to a party just the other night
but 3 hours later and 7 shots of jager,
she was in the bedroom with another guy

and i don't really want to know
so don't tell me anymore
and i really don't want to hear
about her feet all up in the air

and well, i'm not the one who acted like a hoe
why must i be the one who has to know?
i'm not the one who messed up big time
so spare me the details, if you don't mind

now i can understand friends who want to tell me
think they're gonna help me open up my eyes
but the play-by-play makes me want to lose it
everytime you do it, man, it turns the knife

and i don't really want to know
so don't tell me anymore
and i really don't want to hear
about her feet all up in the air

and well, i'm not the one who acted like a hoe
why must i be the one who has to know?
i'm not the one who messed up big time
so spare me the details, if you don't mind

now i don't need to hear about the sounds they were making
and i don't need to hear about how long he was taking
or how the walls, they were shaking

now i'm lying in bed, wallowing in sorrow
missing the tomorrow that we could have had
running through my head, over and over
things i never told her now just make me sad
and it drives me insane, sitting with a vision
stuck with that image burned into my brain
and i feel so dumb that i could ever trust her
but someone else fucked her, then he walked away

and i don't really want to know
so don't tell me anymore
and i really don't want to hear
about her feet all up in the air

and so, i'm not the one who acted like a hoe
why must i be the one who has to know?
i'm not the one who messed up big time
so spare me the details, if you don't mind

(Cause I don't wanna know)
(don't wanna know)Spare me the details if you dont mind
(don't wanna know)
(don't wanna know)Spare me the details if you dont mind

Da Hui

length: 1:45
I won't fuck with Da Hui
I won't fuck with Da Hui
I won't fuck with Da Hui
Because Da Hui will fuck with me

I won't take off on Da Hui
I won't take off on Da Hui
I won't take off on Da Hui
Because Da Hui will fuck with me

Chorus
A Haole with heart, that's all I'll ever be
Cause I'm not a part of the North Shore society
Stuck on the shoulder, that's where you'll find me
Digging for scraps with the kooks in line!

I won't park next to Da Hui
I won't park next to Da Hui
I won't park next to Da Hui
Because I don't really feel comfortable

Chorus
A Haole with heart, that's all I'll ever be
Cause I'm not a part of the North Shore royalty
Stuck on the shoulder, I'm not complaining
Digging for scraps, I'm a kook in line!

Chorus

Don't fuck with Da Hui
Don't fuck with Da Hui
Don't fuck with Da Hui
Because Da Hui will fuck with you!

[Verse 1]
When you're in prison, don't turn the other way
Keep your back against the wall
When you're in prison, don't turn the other way
Do not bend at all

[Chorus]
Oh, don't pick up the soap, pick up the soap
It's bad for you
Oh, don't pick up the soap, pick up the soap
Someone will be waiting there for you

[Verse 2]
When you're in prison, be sure to stay awake
Always lie upon your back
When you're in prison, be sure to stay awake
Keep you from attack

[Chorus]
Oh, don't be no one's bitch, be no one's bitch
It's bad for you
Oh, don't be no one's bitch, be no one's bitch
They won't help you make it through

[Verse 3]
When you're in prison, don't turn the other way
Follow what I say to do
When you're in prison, don't turn the other way
You can make it through[x3]

Defy You (acoustic)

length: 3:55
writer: The Offspring
You may push me around
But you cannot win
You may throw me down
But I'll rise again
The more you say
The more I defy you
So get out of my face

You cannot stop us
You cannot bring us down
Never give up
We go on and on
You'll never break us
Never bring us down
We are alive!

The storm blows
I'll lean into the wind
My anger grows
I'll use it to win
The more you say
The more I defy you
So get out of my way

(Woah!)

All my will
All my strength
Rip it out
Start again

You cannot stop us
You cannot bring us down
Never give up
We go on and on
You'll never break us
Never bring us down
We are alive!

All my will
All my strength
Rip it out
Start again
(x4)

(Can you leave it all behind?
Can you leave it all behind?
Cause you can't go back
You can't go back)

You cannot stop us
You cannot bring us down
Never give up
We go on and on
You'll never break us
Never bring us down
We are alive!
We are alive!

Woah, no.
