Track Name: Fugitive
Phil: Down in the cell you find yourself broken up / gotta find something inside, because the outside just isn't right.

Now I got a plan for escape / gonna leave my tortured mind and take back what's mine / but this time I'm not goin' back to those old broken streets / gonna take that interstate until more problems I meet

chorus : Consequence is a good friend of mine / escape these prison walls and land back on my feet again / fugitive / fugitive

Yes I'm still runnin' trying to find my place in this town again / I'm still runnin', they're trying to find my tracks in the sand again / so funny / Its like a giant tug of war / Yes I'm still runnin' / runnin', I'm runnin' forevermore

chorus

breakout!

chorus
Track Name: 3 Minute Rock
Phil - Integrity ripped out like a thief in the night without a conscience in sight / polluted and destroyed until it sounds right / so get down, get knocked around / of that same old story, same old sound / this music's got a hold on me / cut the cable and set me free

chorus - So give me counter-top turntable
needle's broken no longer able / the record business is making me sick! Making me sick, yeah!

Integrity ripped out like a thief in the night without a conscience in sight / polluted and destroyed until it sounds right / soul and heart has been replaced with a watered down sound and a pretty face / you call yours art I call mine loud

chorus
Track Name: Keep in Mind
Phil - We were forged not long ago in the fire, now a burned out flame / strong still standing strong, but the weak have gone and changed / sick and tired of the business suits with the dollar signs in mind / American dream: political lies

chorus - Keep inside these walls of our broken past (2X) / instead I trip and fall into a different state of mind

So here I stand a broke up kid on the brink of sure defeat / independence now standing on my own two feet / it's all a lie, an illusion, to all those kids I see / I'll be you won't listen to me, too blind and deaf to hear or see!

chorus
Track Name: Losin' my Sight
Phil - Don't even push me, man, won't take much I'll drop you to the ground tonight / sorry I ain't got any thoughts, any plan to change my mind tonight / no I ain't got much to say, no I ain't got much to say to you / well all I know is, man, I sure ain't taking orders

chorus - I'm losing my sight, losing my mind / I'm taking my time and I'm gonna make it right

I said we just won't agree, won't understand my train of thought / that's just your opinion, man, don't mean it's my reality / said what it meant to me: not much, no I ain't listening / sorry I can't stick around and take much more

chorus

Don't even push me, man, won't take much I'll drop you to the ground tonight / sorry I ain't got any thoughts, any plan to change my mind tonight / no I ain't got much to say, no I ain't got much to say to you / well all I know is, man, I sure ain't taking orders

chorus
Track Name: Takin' out the Opposition
Phil - That kid reaching out his hand at me -- gonna run round, gonna get beat down tonight
Kicked down beat up keep up or else you'll end up thrown down again

You're roughed up and sullen it's miserable outside of it
So keep up your fist seek vengeance in the pit!

Taking out the opposition only we'll remain, only we'll remain

Just shut your mouth and hit your mic, you can stand alone in a single file line
So push and push with all your might can't push out of this suburban blight

You're roughed up and sullen it's miserable you're losin' it
So keep up your fist seek vengeance in the pit!

Taking out the opposition only we'll remain, only we'll remain
(2X)

It's up and up and down and down and side to side and round and round that's it!
