Track Name: Riot Girl
It was 2a.m. in Columbus Ohio when I saw her standing there,
With her Blitz T-shirt and her miniskirt and her jet-black hair.
I was drinking a brew, sitting with my crew when she lit a cigarette.
She blew smoke in my face and she told me her name.
A name I'll never forget.

She's a riot, she's a riot.
She's my little riot girl.
She took me up and down
And spun me running round this whole fucking world.

She pulled me aside and she asked me to dance,
And hold her close all night.
We went in the club and we started to drink,
And I got to feeling alright.
She moved so fast, just like a train on the tracks,
And she was one of a kind.
She touched my hand and then she touched my heart,
And I just had to make her mine.

She's a riot, she's a riot.
She's my little riot girl.
She took me up and down
And spun me running round this whole fucking world.
Track Name: No Regrets
As I drive on down this dead end road,
There's only one way left for me to go.
With the same mistakes I make again and again,
I've gotta see this through until the end.

Have you ever stopped to take a look around?
Have you ever thought of what might be found?
You just might see the ugly side of life.
You just might see that it's not alright.
See I've walked the streets,
I've seen love and hate.
I ran into anger like it were my fate.
I've been wrapped up in darkness and surrounded by sin.
You don't wanna see the places that I've been.

As I drive on down this dead end road,
There's only one way left for me to go.
With the same mistakes I make again and again,
I've gotta see this through until the end.

As a sinning man, I've made my mistakes.
I've caused a lot of pain and heartache.
I've been both ways on down that road.
It just don't matter which way I go.
I've been beaten down, broken down, battered and bruised.
I've lived a lifetime of pain and abuse.
Yeah, I'm an outcast, I just can't run with the group.
I'm never gonna be just like you.

As I drive on down this dead end road,
there's only one way left for me to go.
With the same mistakes I make again and again,
I've gotta see this through until the end.
Track Name: Where We Stand
The summer sun has sunk down.
I catch the bus and I head downtown.
I'm going to Lou's tonight to see the show tonight.
Where all of my friends are found.
I step into the club and I see Janie Jones.
She's been singing real loud and she's been dancing all night.
She shakes her fist to society's face,
Cause nothing can bring her down.

We've got pockets full of nothing,
But let me tell you something.
Everything is gonna be alright.

Cause I got this city and I got my heart.
Nothing can tear us apart.
Nothing can bring us down.

I've got a bottle full of dreams and all night to drink away.
With a head full demons, driving me insane.
We stand aside from the crowd, and we go our separate ways.
Walk into the corner store on Orange Avenue,
Back when it was just me and you.
Hand in hand, we never had a plan.
And no one could understand.

We've got pockets full of nothing,
But let me tell you something.
Everything is gonna be alright.

Cause I got this city and I got my heart.
Nothing can tear us apart.
Nothing can bring us down.

This is who we are and this is where we stand.
We don't expect you to understand.
You can't bring us down.

The summer sun has sunk down.
I catch the bus and I head downtown.
I'm going to Lou's tonight to see the show tonight.
Where nothing can bring me down.
Walk into the corner store on Orange Avenue,
Back when it was just me and you.
Hand in hand, we never had a plan.
And no one could understand.

We've got pockets full of nothing,
But let me tell you something.
Everything is gonna be alright.

Cause I got this city and I got my heart.
Nothing can tear us apart.
Nothing can bring us down.
Track Name: Forgotten
Roamin' the streets looking for a good time,
We're all out of step and we're all out of line,
The streetlights give off their familiar glow,
They're the only home that we've ever known,
Walkin' down the 2nd Street alleyways,
Rummaging through the wreckage and decay,
There lies a bottle of broken dreams and apathy,
We're the side of life you don't see on TV.

We're the city's forgotten,
We're standing by the streetlights,
On the same dark corner,
Every fucking night,
We're the city's forgotten,
We're being left behind,
And no one fucking cares.

Sparin' for change outside the liquor store,
Picking up the pennies dropped on the floor,
People walk by just to stop and stare,
What will it take for them to fucking care?

We're the city's forgotten,
We're standing by the streetlights,
On the same dark corner,
Every fucking night,
We're the city's forgotten,
We're being left behind,
And no one fucking cares.
Track Name: All We Know
As these days go by, all I seem to see,
Are my last strands of hope crashing down in front of me.
I try to turn my head, and look the other way,
But there's nothing there, it's all the same.

From this cold concrete, to these city streets,
This is all we have, this is all we know.
With these broken hearts, and these broken dreams,
This is all we have, this is our home.

Abandoned by our friends who got carried away with dope,
And all these situations that we never seem to cope,
And these situations that never seem to die,
We're just hanging along for the ride.

From this cold concrete, to these city streets,
This is all we have, this is all we know.
With these broken hearts, and these broken dreams,
This is all we have, this is our home.

From the ladies on the corner, to these bright city lights,
From this life of pain, to these lonely nights,
From these broken homes, down these same old roads,
This is all we have, this is all we know.

From this cold concrete, to these city streets,
This is all we have, this is all we know.
With these broken hearts, and these broken dreams,
This is all we have, this is our home.
Track Name: Nowhere To Go
I'm sitting on the corner, with a bottle in my hand,
How everything in my life goes wrong, I just don't understand,
And no matter how hard I try, I'll always end up here again,
I know I'm gonna be here in the end.

I've got nowhere to go, I've got nowhere to hide,
I'm losing control, I'm losing my mind,
And those things you did, and those things you said,
Are burning me, deep inside.

I was walkin' around one night on the avenue,
And with a broken heart, I could only think of you,
And how you pushed me away, and you broke my heart,
Like a switchblade knife, you fucking tore me apart.

I've got nowhere to go, I've got nowhere to hide,
I'm losing control, I'm losing my mind,
And those things you did, and those things you said,
Are burning me, deep inside.

Now I'm looking for something new,
But when I look, I just see you,
At the shows or out on the street,
All I see is you.

I've got nowhere to go, I've got nowhere to hide,
I'm losing control, I'm losing my mind,
And those things you did, and those things you said,
Are burning me, deep inside.
Track Name: Up Against The World
When we were kids, we were young and dumb.
Dancing to the beat of the same old drum.
We were ready to leave and to break free,
From this prison we'd all agree.
People say we've got nothing to do.
Nothing to do and nowhere to go.
But we've got a cause, and we've got the right.
We're going up against the word with a fight.

We're going up against the world,
With our fists held fucking high.
We're going up against the world,
Not gonna let out freedoms pass us by.
Singing songs of revolution,
We're singing songs of a better solution.
Singing songs of revolution,
We're singing songs of a better solution.

As the years pass by and start to fade,
I've seen many souls wither away.
I've seen heroes rise and I've seen them fall,
But I keep on walking tall.
I've held my ground and my head up high.
I roll the dice and I play my hand right.
I never say die and I won't walk the line.
I won't go down without a fight.

We're going up against the world,
With our fists held fucking high.
We're going up against the world,
Not gonna let out freedoms pass us by.
Singing songs of revolution,
We're singing songs of a better solution.
Singing songs of revolution,
We're singing songs of a better solution.
Track Name: One Way Street
I saw one day walking down the street,
A kid sitting along in his helpless defeat,
With all of his dreams that came crashing down,
Only to be lost and never found.

Broken dreams are scattered everywhere,
And no one here seems to fucking care,
To pick up the pieces and keep moving on,
No one here seems to get along.

It's another wasted life,
Down this one way street,
It's another wasted life,
To this cold concrete.

I saw one day a mother bury her son,
She never thought that he'd be the one,
To pull the trigger with the gun in his hand,
She just didn't seem to understand.

Broken dreams are scattered everywhere,
And no one here seems to fucking care,
To pick up the pieces and keep moving on,
No one here seems to get along.

It's another wasted life,
Down this one way street,
It's another wasted life,
To this cold concrete.
Track Name: Burnt Out
Another year has passed,
And I'm still here,
Wastin' away day after day,
Playin' the same old game,
And I'm losing my mind,
Tryin' to pass the time,
This fucking place,
Is eating me inside.

I've gotta get out of this place,
It's time for me to move on,
The fire has burnt out,
And the flame has gone.

It's the same old story,
Just a different day,
And I'm still sitting here,
Throwing my life away,
And it breaks my heart,
But I need a start,
A start of something new,
One without you.

I've gotta get out of this place,
It's time for me to move on,
The fire has burnt out,
And the flame has gone.

If there's one thing that I've learned,
It's nothing good can stay,
Every fire burns out,
And fades away.

I've gotta get out of this place,
It's time for me to move on,
The fire has burnt out,
And the flame has gone.
Track Name: Dope Days
I saw Flip on Christmas Eve,
I guess that needle was his cue to leave,
They found him in the morning,
He was cold and blue,
There was nothing more that we could do,
He chose the path of a junkie's life,
He left his kids and he left his wife,
Now his family's on the street,
With nothing but the shoes on their feet.

I'd give my last cigarette just to see you again,
Where did we go wrong?

I never saw a funny man so sad,
Dustin forgot just what he had,
He moved away for the better,
Six months in, we got a letter,
He carried his coffin for a year,
He saw the hate and he saw the fear,
He was always up and he was always down,
Now he's six feet underground,

I'd give my last cigarette just to see you again,
Where did we go wrong?

Push too hard and you'll push him away,
You can't expect him to wanna stay,
Get off his back and he'll win the fight,
But he never saw the light,
Should you know your son by now?
Don't break him down, you should show him how,
What the fuck did you expect him to do?
It's not his fault, It's all you.

I'd give my last cigarette just to see you again,
Where did we go wrong?
Track Name: Dead End
Here I am, I'm alone again,
I ran into another dead end,
I've got no friends in sight to bail me out,
This is what my life is all about,

I take a look around,
And all I see,
Is just a broken hearted reminder,
Of who I used to be,
And I just can't take it,
So I drink my life away,
I live the same sad story,
Since you've gone away.

Everywhere I got and everywhere I've been,
It's the same sad story again and again,
I'm all out of money and got nowhere to go,
Where can you fall when there's nothing below?

I take a look around,
And all I see,
Is just a broken hearted reminder,
Of who I used to be,
And I just can't take it,
So I drink my life away,
I live the same sad story,
Since you've gone away.
Track Name: Lookin' For Trouble
I'm hanging round on this beat up couch,
Listening to records and hanging out,
With the music and my friends by my side,
If just don't get any better than this,
It's midnight on division street,
I was out drinking with Benny and Keith,
Lookin' for trouble, we were up to no good,
That's the way we wanted it to be,

We spent endless days and sleepless nights,
Smoking, drinking, and getting into fights,
We didn't walk the line or follow the path,
We're on a dead end road going nowhere fast.

And that was the way that we wanted it to be,
Living out lives so recklessly,
And that was the way that we wanted it to be,
And that was the way that we wanted it to be.

Driving round town, we got nowhere to go,
Listening to rock'n'roll songs on the radio,
It was us against the world we were bound to lose,
And we didn't want it any other way,
I'm hanging round on this beat up couch,
Listening to records and hanging out,
With the music and my friends by my side,
It's all I ever want and need.

And that was the way that we wanted it to be,
Living out lives so recklessly,
And that was the way that we wanted it to be,
And that was the way that we wanted it to be.
Track Name: Never Back Down
I'm walking down these same old roads.
It's another night and I'm all alone,
But I still got my faith,
It's all I got and it's all I need.
And it's all I got, it's all I got and need.

There's nothing standing in my way.
I won't listen to what you say.
And you can't take my dreams away.
And I'll never back down,
I'll always hold my ground.

I've been down and I've been out,
I've had my face smashed to the ground,
But I still stand up tall,
I stand up tall and I hold my ground,
And it's all I've got, It's all I got and need,
It's all I got and need.

There's nothing standing in my way.
I won't listen to what you say.
And you can't take my dreams away.
And I'll never back down,
I'll always hold my ground.
