Smash (1994)

Nitro (youth energy)

Our generation
Sees the world not the same as before
We might as well just throw it all
And live like there's no tomorrow
There's no tomorrow

We are the ones
Who are living under the gun every day
You might be gone before you know
So live like there's no tomorrow

Ain't gonna waste this life
There's no tomorrow - you ain't gonna live it for me
Believe it

The official view of the world has changed
In a whole new way
Live fast cause if you don't take it
You'll never make it
So if you understand me
And if you feel the same
Then you will know what nitro means

You'll live like there's no tomorrow - ain't gonna waste this life
There's no tomorrow - you ain't gonna live it for me
There's no tomorrow

Bad habit

Hey man you know I'm really okay
The gun in my hand will tell you the same
But when I'm in my car
Don't give me no crap
Cause the slightest thing and I just might snap
When I go driving I stay in my lane
But getting cut off makes me insane

I open the glove box
Reach inside
I'm gonna wreck this fucker's ride
I guess I got a bad habit
Of blowin' away
Yeah I got a bad habit
And it ain't goin' away Yeah

Well they say the road's a dangerous place
If you flip me off I'm the danger you'll face
You drive on my ass
Your foot's on the gas
And your next breath is your last

Drivers are rude
Such attitudes
But when I show my piece
Complaints cease
Something's odd
I feel like I'm God
You stupid dumbshit goddam motherfucker

I open the glove box
Reach inside
I'm gonna wreck this fucker's ride

Gotta get away

I'm getting edgy all the time
There's someone around me just a step behind
It's kinda scary, the shape I'm in
The walls are shakin' and they're closing in
Too fast or a bit slow
I'm paranoid of people and it's starting to show
There's one guy that I can't shake
Over my shoulder is a big mistake

Sitting on the bed
Or lying wide awake
There's demons in my head
And it's more than I can take
I think I'm on a roll
But I think it's kinda weak
Saying all I know is
I gotta get away from me

I tell you something just ain't right
My head is on loose but my shoes are tight
Avoiding my friends cause they all bug
Life is like a riddle and I'm really stumped
If you reason, don't you know
Your own preoccupation is where you'll go
I think I'm being followed, I look around
It's only my shadow creepin' on the ground

Genocide

Our lives run different ways
Through the rain I see you in the sun
Our star shines anyway
If you wish upon it we are one

Dog eat dog
Every day
On our fellow man we prey
Dog eat dog
To get by
Hope you like my genocide

I find it such a shame
Through the pain I see things as they are
We're served up on a plate
The pedestal is high enough to fall
And if in time
We can see the errors of our ways
Would anyone change it anyhow
Our time is up

I bet you'd only run
If you saw what goes inside our own
I bet you'd lead the way
If it were up to you to deside
But it's not

Something to believe in

I believe that reality's gone
Disillusion's real
I believe that morality's gone
And there's nothing to feel

If you take the sacred things
The things that we hold dear
Empty promise is all you'll find

So give me something
Something to believe in

I believe in a changing of the guard
Put our feet on the ground
See it happen in your own backyard
Everything breaks down

Do you accept what you are told
Without even thinking
Throw it all and make your own

And give me something
Something to believe in

Where they lead
You will follow
Well I guess that's just the way it goes
And if you look away
You'll be doing what they say
And if you look alive
You'll be singled out and tried
If you take home anything
Let it be your will to think
The more cynical you become
The better off you'll be

Come out and play (keep 'm separated)

Like the latest fashion
Like a spreading disease
The kids are strappin' on their way to the classroom
Getting weapons with the greatest of ease

The gangs stake their own campus locale
And if they catch you slippin' then it's all over pal
If one guy's colors and the other's don't mix
They're gonna bash it up

Hey - man you talkin' back to me ?
Take him out
You gotta keep 'em separated
Hey - man you disrespecting me ?
Take him out
You gotta keep 'em separated
Hey they don't pay no mind
If you're under 18 you won't be doing any time
Hey come out and play

By the time you hear the siren
It's already too late
One goes to the morgue and the other to jail
One guy's wasted and the other's a waste

It goes down the same as the thousand before
No one's getting smarter
No one's learning the score
Your never ending spree of death and violence and hate
Is gonna tie your own rope

Self esteem

I wrote her off for the tenth time today
And practiced all the things I would say
But she came over
I lost my nerve
I took her back and made her dessert

Now I know I'm being used
That's okay man cause I like the abuse
I know she's playing with me
That's okay cause I've got no self esteem

We make plans to go out at night
I wait till 2 then I turn out the light
All this rejection's got me so low
If she keeps it up I just might tell her so

When she's saying that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she's saying that I'm like a disease
Then I wonder how much more can I spend
Well I guess I should stick up for myself
But I really think it's better this way
The more you suffer
The more it shows you really care Right ?

Now I'll relate this little bit
That happens more than I'd like to admit
Late at night she knocks on my door
Drunk again and looking to score

Now I know I should say no
But that's kind of hard when she's ready to go
I may be dumb
But I'm not a dweeb
I'm just a sucker with no self esteem

It'll be a long time

All this time has whittled away
Like so many days in one
Back and forth the leaders sway
Backing it up with guns

Superpowers flex their wings
Hold the world on puppet strings
Egos will feed
While citizens bleed
That's always the way it goes

When will the world listen to reason
I've a feeling it'll be a long time
When will the truth come in to season
I've a feeling it'll be a long time

All they want is what they can defend
Before their time is up
Make the same mistakes again
Heard it all before

Superpowers flex their wings
Hold the world on puppet strings
Egos will feed
While citizens bleed
That's always the way it goes

Well if they tried
Maybe they'd see
It'd do a little good to let the world be free
Handshake and a smile
Gets you on through
Then turn it all around with a suicide move
But you know it's not fooling anyone but me
You gotta make yourself see what you want to see

Killboy powerhead

He's a pistol grip
And a lightning rod hammer step
He always busts his knuckles
When he's wrenchin' up his shit

He just a Killboy powerhead...yeah

You know I saw his woman
She was writing his name in blood
You know I saw his woman
Hard as a rock

She said she was his baby
Who looked just like the Hoover Dam
You know I saw his woman
Hard as a rock

He just a Killboy powerhead
Killboy powerhead
Killboy powerhead
Killboy powerhead...yeah

What happened to you?

Before you started tokin'
You used to have a brain
But now you don't get even the simplest of things
I can draw a little picture
Or even use my hands
I try to explain but you just don't understand

Man you're really losin' it
And you've really done a lot of junk now
But you keep on abusin' it
What in the world happened to you

It's bad enough you do it to yourself
But taking someone with you
Well you know that's something else
I say I'm not that kind of person
I'm not that kind of man
I try to explain but you just don't understand

I might be sympathetic or cut a little slack
If I thought that you were willing to give a little back
But you do it in the morning
You do it in the night
You lie to refrain from just facing your life

So I'll see you man tomorrow
You'll be gackin' up again
I'll see you in a coffin by the time your wad is spent
I think of all the times that I tried to lend a hand
I try to explain but you just don't understand

So alone

Look at the crowd and tell me whether
All are surrounded
But none are together
If you're awake, look all around
At all of the people
Still you're so alone

So alone

If I could, I'd make a suggestion
Without sounding preachy
Or begging the question
Melt with your minds
Melt with each other
Don't be surrounded
Don't be so alone

Not the one

I'm not the one who made the world what it is today
I'm not the one who caused the problems started long ago
But now I deal with all the consequence that troubles our times
I carry on and never once have even questioned why

I'm innocent
But the weight of the world is on my shoulders
I'm innocent
But the battles started are far from over

We're not the ones who leave the homeless in the streets at night
We're not the ones who've kept minorities and women down
Still we grow and then the problems they become our own
We carry on without even realizing why

We're innocent
But the weight of the world is on our shoulders
We're innocent
But the battles left us are far from over

We're not the ones whose pollution blackened our skies
And ruined our streams
We're not the ones who made the nuclear bombs
That threaten our lives
We're not the ones who let the children starve in faraway lands
We're not the ones who made the streets unsafe to walk at night
And even if we try and not become so overwhelmed
And if we make some contribution to the plight we see
Still our descendants will inherit our mistakes of today
They'll suffer just the same as we and never wonder why

Smash

Head over heals I've fit in before
Now I don't want to do it no more
I've held it all in with blood on my face
Built it up man so bad you can taste
I don't slag no one
I don't even judge
Don't give a shit cause I'm not gonna budge
I just want to be who I want to be
Guess that's hard for others to see

I'm not a trendy asshole
I do what I want
I do what I feel like
I'm not a trendy asshole
I don't fuck if it's good enough for you
Cause I'm alive

Smash is the way you feel all alone
Like an outcast you're out on your own
Smash is the way you deal with your life
Like an outcast you're smashing your strife

Head over heals I've fit in before
Now I don't want to do it no more
I just want to be who I want to be
Guess that's hard for others to see
