Track Name: Careless
Verse 1:
Everything is moving faster.
Well I love shaking hands with disaster.
Ask her she knows me best.
Well I don't even realize it.
Cause I feel like I'm on top of it.
But it always turns to a mess.

Chorus:
Because I'm Careless. But I could care less.
No I don't always do what's right.
Because I'm careless, but I could care less.
See I'm just trying to live my life.

Verse 2:
Well I use to have a pretty lady.
But I gave away the love she gave me.
I don't even know where she's gone. No no no, no no no.
Well I'm always in the wrong places, right time wrong faces.
I don't know where it all goes wrong.

Chorus:
I guess I'm Careless. But I could care less.
No I don't always do what's right.
Because I'm careless, but I could care less.
See I'm just trying to live my life.

Bridge:
Tell me what did do? Did I make you mad?
You must know I love you. I don't mean to laugh.
Tell me what did do? (I just say what I wanna say)
Did I make you mad? (I just see what I wanna see)
You must know I love you. (I just do what I wanna do)
I'm just bad.

Verse 3:
See I've become my own assassin. And still you see me laughing.
I kill myself but always stand up.
I talk about pretend agendas. I try hard not to offend you.
But sometimes oh I just drink too much.
Oh you see I drink too much.
Oh you see I drink too much.

Chorus:
I guess I'm Careless. But I could care less.
No I don't always do what's right.
Because I'm careless, but I could care less.
See I'm just trying to live my life.
Track Name: Panic Attack Fanatic
V.1
All your credentials and your premonitions put you and the list
You might be unstoppable, I've never seen you crash, you never miss.

Pre:
You love the pressure, it fills you up.
You have no threshold, It's never enough.

Chorus:
Oo, The panic attack is back to save you (3x)
Oo, the panic attack is back to save your life.

V.2
Go start the revolution, you masterminded genius.
Your mental surgery and certainty make Gods of all of us.

Pre:
You love the chaos. It makes things clear.
You think it's painless. You have no fear.

--Chorus--

V.3
All those apocalyptic politicians hate to hear your name.
You take a listen to the system then completely change the game.

Pre #1

--Chorus--
Track Name: Brazil
Part I:
Verse 1:
The lights went out inside. I drank till I was blind.
Now I'm passed out on the floor in this hotel room.
They heard me hit the floor. Helped me up out the door.
But now I'm having some bad dream. Subtitles flash across the screen.
Brazilian woman cries and screams.

She cries "Oh, he was the father of my children. Whoa Oh, he was the father of my children."

Verse 2:
Brazil you watched him die. You did not laugh or cry.
It is just the way you wanted death to be. (Everything death could be)
But now his widow cries. She loved him even though he lied.
Now she's left out on her own. The drugs have killed her happy home.
She takes the world on all alone and cries.

"Oh he was the father of my children." (3x) Oh. Ooh. Oh. Oohhh

Part II:
Verse 3:
Miguel and Ann Maria had been married for a year.
He made his money selling groceries and combat gear.
He got an offer from his brother to come back and work the crime.
He tells Maria that he's working late and won't be home by nine.

Chorus:
But he's just doing drugs, while she just stays at home.
He's just dealing drugs again. While she just stays alone, watching the kangaroos.

Verse 4:
Miguel he tried to take a little profit off the top. (Money Money Money Money)
He saw his chance to make it big he took a step and could not stop. (Couldn't Stop, Couldn't Stop, No No)
Before he knew it he was caught inside a war that risked his life. (Why Risk Your Life?)
So now he thinks about Maria yes he want to make it right.

Chorus:
But he's just doing drugs, while she just stays at home. Yeah.....
He's just doing drugs again. While she just stays alone........... watching the kangaroos.

Bridge:
You don't know what's good for you until it's Gone (2x)

Chorus:
He's been doing drugs again while she just stays at home.
He's just dealing drugs again while she just stays alone. (2x)
Watching the Kangaroos....

OUTRO:
Final Verse:
I sit here wondering why. We only live to die.
Is there a road without a crash. Where every life is meant to last.
Or is it true that we must all pass through Brazil. Brazil. Brazil.

You are the laughing stock of this town, the laughing stock of this town,
But you'll always be happier than me.
