Track Name: Khyber Pass
Run though a Khyber Pass in your mind
Sail on past through the cliffs of a shore that you've been on before
Move on up from behind
We only are as you thought we were is that what you prefer?

Move on up from behind
Move on up from behind

The world is a nice place to be
If you can learn to turn your head at what's unpleasant to see
The violence is all in your head
So stop thinking about it and go back to bed

Move on up from behind
Move on up from behind

But I don't care
They're not anywhere, close
I'm as happy as can be

Filled with apathy
Foreign trouble no travesty
Improving lives is no priority

Things are nice round this time of year
Money's comin' in at a steady pace
I heard overseas they're living in fear
What a funny thing to be killed just cause-o-yer race
People downtown have nothing to eat
One of 'em asked me if I had much to spare
Well he better get up onto his feet
Made thousands last week but I'm not one to share
Move on up from behind
Move on up from behind

But I don't care
They're not anywhere, close
I'm as happy as can be

Filled with apathy
Foreign trouble no travesty
Improving lives is no priority

I'm wrapped up in my life
Nothing else could matter more
Material, yeah it keeps me alright
Made enough in my years to buy your store
Smartass writers that mock me in they're books and they're songs
Doesn't matter to me
They'll see that they were wrong
When they starving out onto the street

And I don't care
You know I won't share
What they don't to deserve it?
Their lives ain't even worth it
My square they better desert it
Protests are so disconcerted
I'll shoot 'em, won't feel alerted
Khyber Pass, I've never heard it
Track Name: Yr Livin'
You're off on your own again
But this time you've got more friend in the world
I hope you find what you're looking for my friend
I hope you find what makes you happy in the end
And yeah it's true we're pretty sad to see you go
But you've not left us ill equipped, but taught us all that we could know
I'll put down our goodbyes into the words of a song
Normally I'd not say a thing but for this it just seems wrong

Oh, they say when you're gone
Things won't be the same
Here's to everyone
We're glad you came

Oh, and tell us what we'll do
Rest assured we'll always think of you
Someone we can't forget
Let's get on with our betterment

Good times that you don't know you're livin' in
Not to realize till you're stuck there missin' them
Countless years of memories gone to waste
Always transfixed on things we wish we could erase
Ed and Roger, they had it right when they said
Take note of what's around you, till it's only movies in your head
So remember what you've had, have, and what you'll see
A thousand people and places you've never met and never been

Oh, they say when you're gone
Things won't be the same
Here's to everyone
We're glad you came

Oh, and tell us what we'll do
Rest assured we'll always think of you
Someone we can't forget
Let's get on with our betterment

And I wish there was a way to realize, yr livin in the good times before they're gone
And I wish there was a way to realize, yr livin in the good times before they're gone
And I wish there was a way to realize, yr livin in the good times before they're gone
And I wish there was a way to realize, yr livin in a golden age that's ending right before your face

Oh, they say when you're gone
Things won't be the same
Here's to everyone
We're glad you came

Oh, and tell us what we'll do
Rest assured we'll always think of you
Someone we can't forget
Let's get on with our betterment

Oh, they say when you're gone
Things won't be the same
Here's to everyone
We're glad you came

Oh, and tell us what we'll do
Rest assured we'll always think of you
Someone we can't forget
Let's get on with our betterment
Track Name: GFX
Look into my eyes
What do you see?
A lie comes and falls
From my mouth to my feet

But you're not first in this long line so you come here and take your seat
You're not what I want or what I need so let's not try to meet
I hope these word don’t come to knock out the floor from beneath your feet
But then again I don't care much you're nothing but a prop to me

This I know for sure
If you turn and walk out the door
You'll come back to me inevitably
I've got a hold on you obviously

We don't have
What you think
And I don't think you have
The brains to blink

You don't have to be forlorn
Just be on time when I get bored
And you don't have to make it real
Just give me something I can feel
I'm not one for pleasantries, not for you at least
But ive got useless time to kill
So get over here and have your fill

This I know for sure
If you turn and walk out the door
You'll come back to me inevitably
I've got a hold on you obviously

And here you are saying to me that you're under duress
But you can leave if you can leave if you want, I couldn't care less
You think that you were the only use of my time
But as I said before I've got many more in line

This I know for sure
If you turn and walk out the door
You'll come back to me inevitably
I've got a hold on you obviously
Cause I control you
Even if you don't know
But I don't like you
And it shows
