Track Name: It Sucks Being a Presidential Threat
The statues on the town squares
Don’t know the people don’t care
They bow for them, but they can all agree

The statues on the town squares
Are not supposed to be there
And the people too are not where they wanna be

Prepare, the end is near

So where are you gonna go?
We’re facing revolution, run and hide
But we will never let you go
No we’ll never ever let you
Go go go go
We’re facing revolution, run and hide
But we will never let you go
No we’ll never let you go

So wreck the system
It’s alright
They’ve never ever been polite
Honest, caring or a delight

So prepare, the end is near
So prepare, the end is near

So where are you gonna go?
We’re facing revolution, run and hide
But we will never let you go
No we’ll never ever let you
Go go go go
We’re facing revolution, run and hide
But we will never let you go
No we’ll never let you go

Well, it’s a big fat case of ‘your back against the wall’
It’s time to wreck it all
It’s time to wreck it all

So where are you gonna go?
We’re facing revolution, run and hide
But we will never let you go
No we’ll never ever let you
Go go go go
We’re facing revolution, run and hide
But we will never let you go
So now you know
That where ever you go
You’re facing revolution, run and hide
No we’ll never let you
Go go go go
We’re facing revolution, run and hide
But we will never let you go
Track Name: Clint Hill
Unfamiliarity
Has gotten the best of me
The state’s dried up like Moses’ sea
Nothing’s as it used to be

I still have this overwhelming fear
That has lived inside of me for years
That I was almost never there
Far too late to say my prayers

I’ve kept secrets like I always did
And some other’s fears I hid
But since that day I keep losing it
And no candles were ever lit

Once I jumped out of a moving car
And it hasn’t gotten me that far
‘Cause my love for our stripes and stars
Was not enough to save her heart

I wish I could pick up the pieces
But not like she did when I messed up
Please help me get through this, oh Jesus
I wish that I could make it stop

The white house wasn’t made for this
The walls paint such a blood-red kiss
I’m not quite sure just what it is
But, there’s still something that I miss

Well I didn’t do it, but I haven’t tried
And the feeling tears me up inside
Well I didn’t do it, but I haven’t tried
No I haven’t

I wish I could pick up the pieces
But not like she did when I messed up
Please help me get through this, oh Jesus
I wish that I could make it stop
Track Name: Play it as you Want
I fought it
Took it
Just fine, just fine, oh

On the outside
It looks like
I've tried, I've tried to let go

I know
That you're one of the Capulets
And I can't be a part of it, but still

I know
That I wouldn't wanna kill myself

I don't belong here
I'm not your friend
And you can play it as you want
I don't belong here
I'm not your friend
And you can play it as you want

I died
And felt fine
Just fine, just fine, oh

With a sword stuck
In my spine
I never cried, I never cried, and it shows

That God knows
The things you've done and the things you've said
I don't wanna be part of it, and still

I know
That I wouldn't wanna kill myself

I don't belong here
I'm not your friend
And you can play it as you want
I don't belong here
I'm not your friend
And you can play it as you want
Track Name: Democracy
When I I I, left you to die
that haunting night
Tore me up inside.
But I I I, regret that lie
And it’s too late to try
To make it right

I did not plan on making things
Harder than when they first appeared
But somehow it turned out this way
And I can’t stand the sight of me

Democracy can’t figure me out

When I I I, left you to die
that haunting night
Tore me up inside.
But I I I, regret that lie
And it’s too late to try
To make it right

Voted for, devoted to
None of these are clear or true
I can’t enjoy being free all day
When I see your blood being washed away

Democracy can’t figure me out
The end is near without a doubt
Democracy can’t figure me out

When I I I, left you to die
that haunting night
Tore me up inside
But I I I, regret that lie
And it’s too late to try
To make it right
