Track Name: Programmed to Party
I’m out of control, and something lives inside of me
I’m not gonna sleep tonight, Since I been living, this life of rock and roll
Its changed the way I see the world, I got no self control
My time is running out, I don’t think about. the future past or present, and I don’t have no No alchohol, is bad for morale So drink it down, just one more round Wine and the hops, vodka and scotch Just drink it down, just one more round

I am a machine, this interface my program
Running on low batteries, Alcohol –it feeds my morale.
Programmed to party release the animal
No alchohol, is bad for morale So drink it down, just one more round
Wine and the hops, vodka and scotch Just drink it down, just one more round

When the sun goes down, We will all be set free , When the sun goes down, it won’t be long now.
Track Name: Still Playing Punk
Well it’s been 10 long years, and we’re still having fun
Still making music, We’re still playin’
We live for the weekend while you file your tax returns
Now you’re an old man, we’re still playin’ Punk Rock, Running through our veins

And when I look back on, the different lives we’ve lived
We still got the feeling – yeah… We’re still playin’
You got it so wrong (and you sold out)
You’re just an old man – We’re still playin’ Punk Rock Running through our veins

Running through our veins
Track Name: Mighty Black Lung
I’m super stressed, I need a cigarette - Every day it’s the same
I wake up and tell myself I‘ll never smoke again
I went to see my doc, cos I’m coughing up a lot, he said son you got a mighty-mighty BLACK LUNG
I know it’s not healthy, but I gotta my fix
MY, MIGHTY BLACK LUNG
Well don’t think I’m a cynic but I MIGHT DIE, if I smoke this smoke
Everytime I light one up, I tell myself these lies!
Need to get my hands on, my dirty dirty hands on, a smoke is what I need.
Doctor can you heal my…..
MY, MIGHTY BLACK LUNG
Track Name: Iron Lion Zion
I went to go smoke some rocks
And then I ran from the cops
I have to run like a fugitive
Just to save the life I live
I'm gonna be Iron like a Lion in Zion
I been a really bad rasta man
Haile Selassie is not part my plan
I got the boot from my band reggae
I live and die the punk rock way
I'm gonna be Iron like a Lion in Zion
I went to go smoke some rocks
And then I ran from the cops
I have to run like a fugitive
Just to save the life I live
I'm gonna be Iron like a Lion in Zion
Track Name: Roddy & Zecious
Well I’m gonna tell you a story About a 1x crazy weekend We went down to the River
And that’s where this story begins Ohh… There’s a house on a hill where he goes for cheap thrills – No 1-2 Solitaire Road Roddy went to a festival, he met some girl named What’s her fucking name again I can’t remember, I can’t remember her name He was a SKA-SKA-scanning the crowd - Zecois was her name He gave it all he got because he wanted to show her he was prepared to go the extra mile But in the heat of the moment he burst out laughing when he heard his friends shout (KYLE!!!!)

The DFG is a dirtbag, he gives me boob grabs all of the time I need to get away, and find a good man to ride. That’s when I saw him, standing there and checking me out We got together, when - I came I thought of (KYLE!!!!) So I went down to the party – I look for them in their tents But (I) He couldn’t find us (them) anywhere – and that’s when (I) he got upset Well he told me that he bleeped her – but I did not believe him He (I) had no protection – and his dick is much bigger than (KYLE!!!!)
Roddy Roddy – just how far did you go - oh?
Roddy Roddy – well did you make her touch her toes?
Roddy Roddy – Did she volunteer? To sit upon your throne
