Track Name: Army Math
Not poor just broke
Not drunk but I get the fucking joke
For all the riches I can see I advocate anarchy
Après moi le déluge
It's revoked

Got burned now I'm hot
I’m concerned about everything I'm not
Persistence gets me more than skill
If I can't keep me no one will
Up against the wall
Take the shot

Do the army math
It don't add up
You don't add up
Track Name: Chemtrails
Chemtrails stitch up the sky
Doesn't happen everyday
Explanation proffered
But they lack in credibility

When the régime's insane
I choose dissent over this game
Give me time and I'll explain
The way they use those planes

Black bags and false flags
Tell me who do you believe
Who stands to profit
From the wisdom that's received

Chemtrails stitch up the sky
Happening now everyday
The sky is falling
And no one gets away
Track Name: Third Way Man
Man's not an island it's been said
Out here amongst the living dead
Predetermined by my physiology
I'm Third Way Man

Yeah yeah yeah...

Out here on the margins of discontent
Differentiate us by what's been spent
Learn to leverage my consumer sovereignty
Can't hold me down
Track Name: Leather Trade
It's the leather trade
Take the shot heard 'round the world
When the law says stand your ground
And this parking lot is yours

It's the leather trade
Christian soldier turn your cheek
As the meek and fallen rise
And wipe your small problems away

It's the leather trade
We've come to learn of soils and men
When the smile says step outside
Won't you come out and play
Track Name: Pipe City
Ain't got no place to go
Same as yesterday
Capital it fails us now
So we're down with the UXA
Did time in Miseryville
They called it Pipe City
Got the strength, got the will
They've got nothing to pay

From whence this grand calamity
Reducing lord and liege
An abandoned storefront tells
The story of a siege
Where's our Daddy Warbucks now
Where's the noblesse oblige
All the things that make a life
Suspended out of reach

You're out of range
We've got the strength
To turn the page
Track Name: Red Lines
Behold the wisdom of our age
Hew close to blasphemy, ridicule and rage
Watchers unseen
We live your lives out on our screens

Behold the envy of the world
With grave neutrality our market's flag unfurls
He walk with me
March from the mountain to the sea

We draw the red lines through your days

Behold colossus of greed
Discredit those possessed of fortitude to lead
All we'll ever be
Our undetermined legacy
