OC Confidential (Lyrics)





Hawks And Doves 
Bombers in the sky
No one's asking why
We have to duck and cover
When the bullets start to fly
When the bullets start to fly
We have to duck and hide
Just a game of cat and mouse
Cruise missiles in production
That are locked and set
Annihilate the cancer
Of the US deficit
Spend a little more
Fix it with a war
Just a game of cat and mouse
Work a 60 hour week
Still can't pay the rent
Tax away my wages
To bomb another tent
Bomb another tent
How much money's spent
Just a game of cat and mouse
Treason to contest
Where the money goes
Building shelter, buying clothes
Where does the money go
Where does the money go
Just a game of cat and mouse
Hawks and doves
Blood all over
A gangster debt
Tanks on CNN
Propaganda TV set
Propaganda TV set
Propaganda TV set
Just a game of cat and mouse
Borders we've established
To keep each other out
Serve the purpose all too well
To even talk about
Lock each other up
Lock each other out
A child lays bleeding
From a random shot each day
We can't stand the pain
So we quickly look away
The time has come today
Do not look away
Just a game of cat and mouse
Lock each other up
Lock each other out
Blow it all to hell
In wars we cannot win
Wars we cannot win
Wars we cannot win
Just a game of cat and mouse 
Lockdown America 
Ten minutes til' twelve o'clock,
That's when the hammer drops,
Sienide in the chamber,
Until the humvee stops,
The last breath (Dying breath),
Of a dying democracy,
Pax Americana,
From sea- to shining sea.
[Chorus:]
Lockdown, America Lockdown,
America Lockdown, America...
Solution in his layer,
Is locked up in a cage,
Sweepin' under a road,
[Chorus]
Lock him in a cell,
Spread him of his rights,
One latch a time,
March above the hill,
Stand above the ground,
One latch at a time,
[Chorus] 
Where The Children Play 
Drive-by suicide bombers all over
In our front yards and in our bedrooms
Biochemical warfare, anthrax and smallpox
Stuff it all back in the toy box
I want to, I want to play
I want to play where the children play
I want to, I want to play
I want to play where the children play
In a world where the sun shines each and every day
I want to play where the children play
Fanatics on a mission, it's impossible to tell
Where the last batch of FDA poison fell
To justify their vision is a pretty tough sell
Twin towers blew all our dreams to hell 
California Son 
Came to a point, do I laugh or cry?
Came to a point, do I quit or do I try?
I called out, do you even exist?
Why do you ask, came a voice from the missed
Life's just begun
California son
Just have some fun
California son
Fun in the sun
California son
Go have some fun
California son
Life should be fun
I asked a priest about the mystery
Why this heart of darkness consumes me
Merciful mother, the misery
What have I done that he'd forsaken me? 
Guns Of September 
Ten years have passed
Ten years have passed
Since the guns of September
Ten years have passed
Don't cry, don't cry
Don't cry, it's thunder
Don't cry, don't cry
Don't cry, it's thunder
Outside, outside
This world of wonder
Don't cry, don't cry
Ten years have passed
Since the guns of September
Tanks in the street
Do you remember?
Fire in the night, smoke in the sky
We had to hide
Guns, guns
Guns, guns
Guns of September
Outside my window
The world's a disaster
It's who we are
Not how things should be
I look in your eyes
And see the potential
Who we are
And how things should be
Don't cry, don't cry
Guns of September 
Pointless Teenage Anthem
This is a pointless teenage anthem
About how great things used to be
The kind that tugs your heartstrings
Like rhythmic atrophy
A pointless teenage anthem
We're not allowed to grow
Past the pointless teenage tantrums
Like the kind I used to throw
Round, round, round
Just keep spinning around
Down, down, down
Spinning upside down
Pound, pound, pound
Pound it to the ground
Sound, sound, sound
Like its something new they've found
A pointless teenage anthem
Is what they expect from me
To hold on to the youth they lost
In 1983
A pointless teenage anthem
To keep the old school young
So they can slam around and round
Lament what they've become
A pointless teenage anthem
Really shouldn't be too tough
I've written fifty other ones
More than enough
So here's a toast to happiness
To life and liberty
Life's a blast, throw off the past
Irresponsibility 
Death On Friday
Tell me something I don't know
About discretion
Manic deception
Oh hari kari let’s go
I don't know
No, I don't know
How to let it go
To where the wind blows
No fighting, no hiding
The hurricane we're riding
No fighting, no hiding
We can't say either way
The piper has been paid
We can't say why we must pay
For death on Friday
Tell me something I don't know
About salvation
Annihilation
Oh hari kari let’s go
I don't know
No, I don't know
How to let it go
Oh hari kari let’sgo
Into The Fire
 A single shot then silence springs
An alarm that blew my whole world apart
Infection spread like a hornet sting
The mark of Cain on a bullet
Shot through a poisoned heart
I could feel the taste of bile come up
Then drop like fire washed with gasoline
Too much just ain't enough when bloodied hands come clean
Then we step off the land
Into the fire
Out of the pan
Into the fire
Just grab my hand
And hold on tight
I'll pull you to
The guiding light
The candle flickered, the wind it howled
The waters crashed, the ship set sail at last
I sometimes sense my brothers scowl
Was molded into a smile
By the coroner's wax
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
Rosetta Stone, no laughter
In the face of mirth
No phoenix rising from the rust
From the earth to the earth
Within These Walls
Within these walls
Within these walls is pain and strife
Within these walls it's yours tonight
Within these walls you'll sacrifice
Within these walls
We're prowling to and fro
Prowling to and fro
Prowling to and fro
With nowhere else to go
We need a lamb to slaughter
On the center stage
Inside this house tonight
We'll please the gods of rage
From the center stage
With our sacrifice
With our sacrifice
Within these walls
We don't look the same
Within these walls
We all feel pain
We're all in this game
Make no mistake
There comes a time to stand and fight
Or turn and walk away
The simple choice
Between wrong and right
To kill or pray
Blood's been spilled all over the step
When you choose to lie
When the bleeding heart
In your traditions ran dry
Dreams are broken on the boulevard
Outside this house of blues
By misery makers, undertakers
Movers, shakers, liars, fakers
Dreams are broken on the boulevard
Let It Rain 
Nothing original
The sin I wear
Unholy wound
This open tear
All of god's children
Would truly understand
The midnight flight
The crimson sand
Let it rain
Wash it all away
Let it rain
Let it rain
Thorns of Christ
No peace on earth
Lord of flies
King of dirt
The search for tomorrow
Lies in these eyes of fire
A test of faith
Will transpire
The road to peace lay at your door
The road to peace and nothing more
Just say the word, I'll walk away
Just say the word, I'll walk away
Just say the word
I'll shed no tears for yesterday
Just say the word, I'll walk away 
OC Confidential
I grew up in Orange County
In the shadow of a mouse
Watched the sky light up
From the rooftop of my house
Things seemed so subtle
Off Katella Avenue
Living in a city
With so many things to do
This is a town where nothing goes
This is a town where a mind can't grow
This kind of town gets in your face
This is a town like any other place
Again, I'm losing again
I went to a shrink, I was so messed up
10 hours of therapy, 1500 bucks
I asked him, doctor whats the matter with me?
He said, you're an addict, it's so plain to see
This is a town where they kiss and tell
This is a town that I know too well
This kind of town gets in your face
This is a town like any other place
Again, I'm losing again
This is a town where they kiss and tell
This is a town that I know too well
This kind of town gets in your face
This is a town like any other place
This is a town where nothing goes
This is a town where a mind can't grow
This kind of town gets in your face
This is a town like any other place 
Monsanto Hayride
Magic kingdom, right at Main
Shattered link, food chain
Tomorrowland in a plastic can
Monsanto: your house of the future
In a working class Alabama town
Childhood leukemia found
Mercury poisons the stream
Monsanto
Amber waves of greed
Poison the well
In greed we trust
Against the grain
Minnesota genocide
Birth defects, pesticide
Roundup spray, village green
Monsanto
Big business muscles flex
Blind eyed FDA inspects
Par for the course no one suspects
Monsanto: your house of the future
You'll seed your fields
How we tell you to
You'll feed your cows
What we sell to you
Inject growth hormone
Into the seed you sow
You'll eat and feed and seed
But never know
How far the tentacles reach
From the greed that feeds inside
How far the invasion sweeps
Monsanto
Grab your girl and climb aboard
Monsanto hayride
Plant the seed, breed the greed
Plant the seed Monsanto brings
Magic kingdom, right at Main
Shattered link, food chain
Tomorrowland in a plastic can
Monsanto
Close your eyes, ignore the lies
Bastard's creed no one denies
Systemic failure demands supply
Monsanto: your house of the future
You'll seal your fate
How we want you to
You'll feed your children
Our frankenfood
The future's now
Reap what we sow
Mutate the future
And we'll watch you grow 

Find A Way 
He said, I see the dawn as a fading looking glass
I'm on an island, alone in the mass
I can't swim and I'm sinking fast
I have no future, no connection to the past
Life has no meaning, that's the catch
I gotta find a way out of here
It's hard to find my way out of here
He started weeping, turned and wiped away a tear
Please help me find a way out of here
I said, I know you when you're inside here
It's overwhelming that the darkness never clears
In this abyss, at the edge you're stepping near
All the nightmares, all the fear
Listen to your heart, can't you hear?
You can find your way out of here
The sun, look for the sun
Look for the sun, the son above
Look for the dove and fly
Fly out of here
You've got to find a way out of here
Spread your wings and fly away from here
You've got to find your way out of here
Turn away from the anger and fear
And find a way out of here
The sun will shine
The sun will shine
The sun will shine
