Track Name: New Deal
I may not know who I am but I know what I'm not
I may not have that much but I love what I've got
I won't argue with you about what's real and what's fake
Because your attitude stinks, don't know how much more I can take

NEW DEAL - Get a new fucking deal!

If you see something wrong then you just can't sit back
You say the scene sucks but you won't pick up the slack
Don't sell yourself short always express how you feel
And if you don't like the cards then get a new fucking deal

NEW DEAL - BUST IT

We've got so much to give
We've got a new deal and we won't let you win
Not going to waste another fucking day
You want to watch it fall well we'll build it right back up

NEW DEAL!
Track Name: Wound Up
Pressure mounting, stress building
Always on the verge of breaking
Feeling stuck and out of luck
I'm wound up, wound up
I can't breath, I can't sleep
Can't back out, can't escape
I don't know what to do
I'm wound up, wound up
And I've fucking had enough

I've got to find a way to unwind
Before I lose my fucking mind

Wound up
Track Name: Figurehead
You put up a front to make us think you care
But those feelings you claimed you had were never fucking there

Some may think you speak for me
But we don't share the same beliefs
I don't buy a word you've said
You're nothing but a figurehead

Your position of power gives you nothing over me
Because everything you do is only for your own gain

Some may think you speak for me
But we don't share the same beliefs
I don't buy a word you've said
You're just a fucking figurehead
And your time's coming to an end

You'll never represent who I am
So stop pretending that you understand
Track Name: Strong Willed
You say I'm wrong 'cause I don't think the same way.
Take every chance to shove your views in my face.
You don't fucking respect that I have my own mind
So let me stop you there before you feed me another bullshit line

I'M STRONG WILLED about what I believe.
I don't have to hide, I wear my heart on my sleeve.
Never follow, I'm not one of the pack
Don't push your beliefs on me, I'll push em right back.

STRONG WILLED.
Track Name: Rites of Passage
The time has come to join the ranks
You're all grown up now take your place
Hit the bars and raise your glasses
Here's to a life following the masses
Drink and repeat, every week
The backdrop for every meet and greet
Well if this is what it means to be an adult
I'd rather be dead than join your cult

I want no part in these RITES OF PASSAGE
The path they lead is not where I'm headed

I can't stand these expectations
Putting up with this is trying my patience
No I don't want to get a drink
I've had enough of this just leave me be
And I just can't fucking understand
Why you won't accept me for who I am
I'm not trying to make you change
So why can't you do the same?

I want no part in these RITES OF PASSAGE
The path they lead is not where I'm headed

And if this pressure keeps building
I might need to let off some steam
