Track Name: Clubber Lang
Phil - You're turning black and blue, cause you fight without pride / this rings my battlefield, and my strength is no lie

Evan - Double mohawks and double chains / double the blood, and double the pain / a lot to lose and a lot to gain / back to the streets, or worldwide fame

chorus - You can knock me out, but you can't keep me down / cause I will rise above / man I've paid the price, yeah man I've paid the price / I've paid it back in blood / lets go!

Phil - Cause I train on the streets / the chaos feeds me / my mission is destruction and your name, it tops my list

Evan - Don't remember my face, just remember my name / you'll need something to hate when I leave you nameless / the kid that beat you from the wrong side of town / I'm the king that reign, with the golden crown

chorus

Evan - Touch gloves, fair fight / best man win at my brain / lights flash, sweat drips / eyes swell, pain rips / clench teeth, watch feet / jab one, jab two / beat this, KO / what you gonna do?! / champion of the streets!
Track Name: Exile
Evan - A drifter with no name / got a home, but my soul is homeless

Phil - Black smoke rising, its right before my eyes / well all I see is red lights and blue

Evan - Kinda float, no destination in particular / my world is highly random, and just as unpredictable / don't know when things come, don't know when they go / Springfield is a ghost town and I'm a phantom's shadow

chorus - I'm a runaway for life / got a train ride to nowhere / I walk for miles and miles / get me anywhere but here / exile! exile! exile! exile!

Phil - Black smoke rising, its right before my eyes / well all I see is red lights and blue

Evan - Unfiltered cigarettes burn baby, burn / cities and streets, the classrooms where I learn / modern day hobo, wandering vagabond / the only clue to where I'm going is the places that I've gone

chorus
Track Name: No Way Out
Got no way! No way out! I got no way! No way out!

Phil - Got a life's integrity / just the way you said it'd be / these walls are burnin red / got a wrong mind set / man united we're dead

No, no! No way out! No, no! No way out!

Evan - Do you ever feel like you're stuck? / fallen down and you can't get up? / I've been following the same steps / going in circles / doing the same thing for way too long / in the 40 hour rate race, work to survive / slave and slave, feed the fat cats to stay alive / money makes the world go around / but I'm through with my part I gotta stop

chorus - Four walls holding me (no no) / curtains make it so I can't see out (no way out) / blind turn around the bend (no no) / now I see, but the streets a dead end (no way out)

Evan - Like a horse with its blinders on, or walking around in the thickest fog / got the numbers, but can't do the math / sleep walking through a maze, gotta find the right path / escape this place leave this town / gotta start running cause I'm hitting the ground / fight fire with fire and escape this cage / been cloudy and raining for too many days

chorus

Got no way! No way out! I got no way! No way out!

Phil - Got a life's integrity / just the way you said it'd be / these walls are burnin red / got a wrong mind set / man united we're dead

chorus x 2
Track Name: Same Bullet
Evan - I kill them, but so do you / those black suit men should suffer too / no time in jail, won't burn in hell / whats the difference between me and you? x 2

chorus - same bullet, same gun / trigger finger still got pulled / same head, still dead / you live, I die / truly the one with the man survives

Phil - The SPD the CIA the FBI the NRA / their thoughts are sure not set on self defense / the extermination of a nation, all we can do is seek shelter man / stop it all, disarm tonight

chorus

Evan - Those government guys shot JFK / and they probably still kill today / they blow guys away for money / into the shadows, gone, get away x 2

chorus x 2
