Track Name: You Could Have Died
I know we were young and you had the right
And I know that you about broke when she died
And I know you will do what you will and that's that
And I'll try not to judge you, but you could have died

I know that you wanted to feel something different
And I can't imagine how you lit up inside
But it's not just this asshole, it's what he brought with him
Maybe you can stop, but you could have died.

I still send you letters and wait for your calls
I've long since abandoned all semblance of pride
I know when I hear you I'll want to say nice things,
But all that will come out is "you could have died."

And now there's this book I should probably read,
But your story is more than I can abide.
I'm happy for all your accomplishments, love,
And for all your success, but you could have died.
Track Name: News to Me
This world we promised you through books and songs and stories
This world of polar bears, rainforests, and coral reefs
It's not quite how things are today; it's more like history.
We just never knew quite how to say it.

I wish that I could tell you
That this was news to me.
I wish that I could say that this was all a big surprise
We hadn't lived our whole lives with it staring in our eyes.
Truth is that we've seen it coming for so many years.
We heard it too, we shut our eyes and then we blocked our ears.

We wanted you to see the world as it was
But now it's time you knew that it's not coming back.
You wanted blue skies, birds and frogs and whales.
At least on good days we can breathe without a mask.
Track Name: Promise You Will Fall
This has gone too far
and it’s not day one yet
Government by shotgun
Slash and burn, repeat

All you have is lies
They've served you well so far
You’ve got a lot of rope there
Looks good around your neck

We are watching you
We see it all
You think that you’re invincible
We promise you will fall

Soon enough the ones you duped
Will see they’re hurting worse.
They’ll join us in the streets
And we’ll run you out of town

We said you’d never win
It turns out we were wrong
We’re saying it again
We’ll fight to make it true

For now we’ve got each other
There are more of us than you
Ignore us if you want
Until we’re at your door
Track Name: Will We Ever Know
Will we ever know just how fucked we are?
Track Name: Unfuck the World
Everything points to fuck the world
Vote your spleen, blow shit up
Buy a gun, buy another
Tell someone to go to hell

Then I see your little face
And I think we might be okay
Then you laugh and roll around
And the world can live another day

Everything points to the world is fucked
Things are melting, things are burning
More and more people, piling up
Nobody cares, nothing changes

Then I see your little face
And I think we might be okay
Then you laugh and roll around
And the world can live another day

Let's unfuck the world, you and I
Let's unfuck the world until we die
