Track Name: Jimmy's Headache
In second grade he got a friend named Sam friends for life good and bad
Always in tune never they fought but all that change just over night
When a new kid move in to town soon king of class his word made the rules
He didn't like Jim not at all and they all follow like a pack of wolfs

Friends for life don't mean the same when your in second grade
Friends for life ain't worth a dime when you in second grade

The teachers turned the other cheek
Didn't want to see or didn't want to know
He imagines it all, he´s just weak
There is no problem at our school

Then one day at a field trip
Tom kick his ass ripped his shirt
His mother was mad, he broke down and cry
And told her about his living hell

''Friends for life don't mean the same when your in second grade
Friends for life ain't worth a dime when you in second grade
There's no problem at our school, it's all just in his head
There is no problem at our school, the kids get along just fine
There's no problem at our school, it's all just in his head
There is no problem at our school, come on see for your self''

With tears in her eyes she called the principal
There is no problem not what i´ve I heard
It's all in his head, his just insecure
He's not doing well ins school you know

What do you mean with that she said
You should pay more attention to his work
Not tell us what to do, it´s just an excuse
There is no problem at our school
Track Name: Plastic Copies of You
or every day you claim the streets of fame
another one like you will stand in line
waiting for the clock to bide its time
An army of plastic copies of you

You know its its true

fame junkies always got something to sell
lets face it your last weeks news

You know its true
They know it too

She don't care and he don't care bout you
Track Name: Welcome to 1984
Make some promises that you have no intention
To keep for the ones that count on you
In four years, no one will remember
So it's safe to spread some more lies
Then when you make them fools believe
You just have to play it safe
And guard your own interests
That's the way it works, that's the way they work

Welcome to 1984, were the people have no will
If you ain't got nothing to hide there's no need to be afraid

He want to now what you been up to,
Maybe you got a friend doing hish-hush
Or worse maybe your own children,
A computer full of bullshit billboard songs
So you see it's in the government's interest
To prevent such an awful crime
Such an awful crime

Welcome to 1984, where the people have no will
Politicians are sold and bought there's a price for every thought
Welcome to 1984 where the people have no will
Freedom of speech is the lie we're fed, while they strip us down to our last thread
Track Name: I'm a Monster
will the time set me straight
live in a world that i hate
got a hard time to relate
cause I'm a monster

we´re just a small part of the big machine
just like puppets on a mad mans scene
oh i think it is so obscene
but i'm a monster

And all the kids can say their piece
But the word of truth is just for lease
say what you want, but make sure it fits the script

i wanna be free without this chain
but the state of the rich continues to gain
is it weird to feel this pain?
like i'm the monster

Our lives are govern by the interest rate
we live in a world with an expired date
Madness rules the public debate
And I´m the monster?

I try so hard to get a grip
Im afraid that my feet will slip
I can´t believe my life gone
Track Name: Tux
She's got the world on her shoulders when she runs
She's got the desperation in her steps
And he will die for her love he will sacrifice their son
And he will wait until she comes with the sun

''Help me find my way it would be nice to know how to pray''

She's hallucinating
She's so cold the ice is tearing down her coat
Here come the sun, here comes salvation right in time
Oh what a girl he is well and and in his prime

''Help me find my way it would be nice to know how to pray''

I see a crack Is it mine, or will have to wait
I See a crack is it mine, or might i've gone to far
Might I've gone to far

''Help me find my way it would be nice to know how to pray''
Track Name: I Don't Want to Play
I'm drifting away in this mindless state
Where are you?
I've tried to find the answer but its nowhere to be found
''
Oh, I don't want to play no more''

Losing the ground
with the world i once found so perfect
What can i do? I'm nobody but i try

I guess it all comes with age
I would like to say its all okay
''
I don't want to play no more''

As all the people seems to stay at the same phase
well I'm different i have change
I don't know were i belong

''I don't want to play no more''

But don't feel sorry for me
'Cause I'm not
