Razor's Edge 04:08
I might be walking on a thin line But I'm sure not walking straight I tried to leave something behind me Maybe I left it a bit too late Can't seem to get my head on straight Don't always feel like getting out of bed And I'm walking on a razor's edge I'm walking on a razor's edge There's a world I'd like to wash away But I've nothing to replace it with So I pour myself another drink So I don't have to face it I've spoken words that I thought I meant But no one listened to a word I said And I'm walking on a razor's edge I'm walking on a razor's edge There's something that we should have Something to make the whole damn world laugh Tell me what's wrong with this picture I'd like to turn the world upside down Do you think that that would fix it To make a smile out of a frown I can't seem to find a how-to book To organize the chaos in my head And I'm walking on a razor's edge I'm walking on a razor's edge

How I Wish 02:21
I’d like to find the fool who said a broken heart will always mend with time Cause I’m searching for tomorrow but it’s always yesterday that I find Chorus: And now I don’t know what to do All I think about is you And how you swore that you were mine But it was just another lie Oh how I wish that you would die I try to fight the urge to go out walking past your window late at night Afraid of seeing something I don’t really want to see through those blinds Chorus: And now I don’t know what to do All I think about is you Wrapped around some other guy After all I’ve been denied Oh how I wish that you would die I sit here with my brush and canvas painting over memories of you What started out in crimson has now slowly turned a deep shade of blue Chorus: And now I don’t know what to think So I pour another drink And tell myself that I feel fine But it’s just another lie Oh how I wish that I would die, die, die, die, die!

Pack of Lies 02:38
You black-eyed, blue-haired fantasy mongers acting like the fool Don’t you hear them laughing at you breaking all their rules You say there ain’t no stopping now, there ain’t no turning back You say you like the taste of freedom, at least the little … you’ve had You sad-eyed lost and lonely angels hiding from this world Don’t you let them tie you down, don’t let them break your will It’s time to strut your stuff now, it’s time to play by your own rules It’s time to say you’ve had enough, don’t let them play you … for the fool You four-eyed rag-top wisdom seekers running ‘round this world Don’t let them tell you anything you haven’t learned your self Just take a chance on living, take a giant step for humankind And don’t just take what they’re giving, you know it’s all … a pack of lies

The Red Flag 03:09
The Workers’ flag is deepest red, It shrouded off our martyred dead. And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold Their hearts blood died its every fold. Chorus Then raise the scarlet standard high Within its shade we’ll live and die, Tho cowards flinch and traitors sneer, We’ll keep the red flag flying here. Look round, the Frenchman loves its blaze, The sturdy German chants its praise; In Moscow’s square its hymns are sung; Chicago swells the surging song. Chorus It well recalls the triumphs past, It gives the hope of peace at last; The banner bright, the symbol plain, Of human right and human gain. Chorus With head uncovered swear we all, To bear it onward till we fall; Come dungeon dark or gallows grim, The song shall be our parting hymn. Chorus

I reached into my pocket, searching for a dollar Only to find it empty again Makes me wanna grab the whole world by the collar Chorus Don’t you see that you’re staring into the eyes of a desperate man You’re staring into the eyes of a desperate man They changed all the locks, took away my home, For reasons I don’t understand Now I feel like a king whose been dethroned Chorus Don’t you see that you’re staring into the eyes of a desperate man You’re staring into the eyes of a desperate man A man with a gun came to me last night Said “Give me all your money while you still can” But all I did was laugh when I heard him cry out Chorus Don’t you see that you’re staring into the eyes of a desperate man You’re staring into the eyes of a desperate man I’m a desperate man I’m a desperate man
