Track Name: I Know Nothing
Verse 1:
I'm getting sick and tired of this world, but I know, I know nothing.
I am just a stupid girl, and I know, I know nothing.
I'm getting sick of this hate we spread, and I know, I know nothing.
I'm getting sick of being publically brain dead, and I know, I know nothing.

Chorus:
I, I am nothing, I know nothing x2

Verse 2:
I'm getting bored of being bored, and I know, I know nothing.
I'm getting bored of being ignored, and I know, I know nothing.
I'm getting bored of arguing, and I know, I know nothing.
I'm getting bored of the same old thing, and I know, I know nothing.

(Chorus)

I know nothing x7
I am nothing x6
Track Name: Mind's Eye
Chorus:
Oh eyes, oh mind, surprise, confined. Accent to the brain, psychedelic ghost train, open up it’s never the same, but nightly held by this chain, mind's eye, mind's, eye, mind's eye, open wide.

Verse 1:
Swimming through the thoughts of last, our present’s just our future’s past, hypnotic state of mind, un-ravel the answers you find.

Chorus:
Oh eyes, oh mind, surprise, confined. Accent to the brain, psychedelic ghost train, open up it’s never the same, but nightly held by this chain, mind's eye, mind's, eye, mind's eye, open wide.

Verse 2:
Dancing through the memories vast, our present’s just our future’s past, I’ll be the letters that you singed, just point me to the dotted line.

Chorus:
Oh eyes, oh mind, surprise, confined. Accent to the brain, psychedelic ghost train, open up it’s never the same, but nightly held by this chain, mind's eye, mind's, eye, mind's eye, open wide. x4
Track Name: Food Chain
Sorry about these badly written lyrics, I wrote them when I was 13. :)

Verse 1:

Cruelty should not be a fashion statement.
Just because they have it doesn’t mean we need to take it.
I don’t care who you are, I will pass judgment, I will pass judgement, I will pass judgment!

Hunting is not a sport,
It’s stupid, cruel and it should be changing,
In a sport both teams should know that they are playing.
I’m sick and tired of this disgusting behaviour we’re displaying.

Chorus:

Man is the top of the food chain,
Because we think that it’s ok,
Man thinks everything’s for them,
I have to close my eyes and count to 10,
Close my eyes and count to 10.
Close my eyes and count to 10.
Humanity thinks everything’s for them.

Verse 2:

Testing on them is not okay,
It should not be down to me to have to say,
This is one way of learning that cannot stay,
Let's change it now without delay.

Slaughter, should not be condoned,
Why do you want to eat a plate of blood, flesh and bone?
There’s plenty of other things you can feed on, but still you moan, yeah, still you groan.
I can’t believe you people keep dead bodies in your homes. Dead bodies in your homes. Dead bodies in your homes.

Chorus:

Man is the top of the food chain,
Because we think that it’s ok,
Man thinks everything’s for them,
I have to close my eyes and count to 10,
Close my eyes and count to 10.
Close my eyes and count to 10
Humanity thinks everything’s for them.

Bridge:

Cruelty should not be a fashion statement,
People to who wear it we should be anything but reverent.
Hunting is not a sport,
And nobody should support
Testing on them is not ok,
The worst thing is they do it because we pay.
Slaughter should not be condoned,
Slaughter should not be condoned,
Slaughter should not be condoned,
Slaughter should not be condoned,


Chorus:

Man is the top of the food chain,
Because we think that it’s ok,
Man thinks everything’s for them,
I have to close my eyes and count to 10,
Close my eyes and count to 10.
Close my eyes and count to 10
Humanity thinks everything’s for them.

Outro:

Man is the top of the food chain,
Because we think that it’s ok,
Man thinks everything’s for them,
I have to close my eyes and count to 10.

Slaughter should not be condoned x4

Man is the top of the food chain,
Because we think that it’s ok,
Man thinks everything’s for them,
I have to close my eyes and count to 10.
