Track Name: Koch Problem (Time for Rehab)
ALEC’s hiring
Are you for sale?
Plutocrat scum
Who pulls your puppet strings?

Maxed out profits
Over people
Raping the land
Exploit labor and the media

Choke on pet coke
I want to watch you choke on it

Privatized our transportation
Privatized our health care system
Privatized our education
Privatized our incarceration

Foolish halfheads
Sing their praises
Fucking traitors
Don’t obey your masters

Rise and resist
Enough’s enough
See them quaking
Chickens come home to roost

Choke on pet choke

Time for rehab
We have a Koch problem
Track Name: 1405
All the screaming night and day
Always kept our friends away
That’s why we wanted to stay
Anywhere but where hell was paid
All the lies and they betrayal
Much too young to comprehend

But that didn’t stop you two (you two)
When we were just kids
But that didn’t stop them too (them too)
When we were just kids

Brought into the middle of it
Which one of us will you choose?
Neither option wasn’t good
What did I know at age 8?
They said just stay together
It’s what’s best for the children

But that didn’t stop you two (you two)
When we were just kids
But that didn’t stop them too (them too)
When we were just kids

You can’t make this up to me
You can’t undo the agony
I don’t need no more therapy
This is all that I need for me
Track Name: Taken for a Ride
Drive, taken for a ride, great American street car scandal

No thanks to General Motors
Disguised as smaller companies
Big Oil and their lobbyists
Plutocrats that they bought

Drive, taken for a ride, great American street car scandal

Took over public streetcars
Replaced with dirty buses
Raised fare was unfair
Late routes made folks late

Next up was the Interstate Highway Act
Sold to the public in the name of national defense
Meantime the Federal Housing Administration
Was handing out low interest home loans
A great deal if your face was pale

Drive, taken for a ride, great American street car scandal

White flight on out
Barely acknowledge your neighbor
On your commute to work
Another insular community

We’re drowning in their sprawl
Short sighted strip malls
Fuck you goddamn thieves
Who sold us the American Scheme

Taken for a ride
Track Name: Lay Hands Off
What’s that you say from your pulpit?
It’s holy shit
What’s that you say from your podium?
It’s snake's venom

What are you saying?
What are you saying to her?

Deny access to birth control
Deny access to sex education
Deny access to health care
Deny access to abortion
A fetus is not a baby

What’s that you say from your pulpit?
It’s holy shit
What’s that you say from your podium?
It’s snake's venom

What are you saying?
What are you saying to her?

Deny access to equal pay
Deny access to child care
Deny access to a safe place
Deny access to each other
A women is not a child

But we can choose to disobey
And we can choose to not partake
And we can choose to unite
For the sake of our humanity

But we can strive to change our ways
And we can strive to not pass on
And we can strive to be better
For the sake of our well-being

What’s that you say from your pulpit?
It’s holy shit
What’s that you say from your podium?
It’s snake's venom
Track Name: Taking Back Sundries
The gang’s all here and not much’s changed
For better or worse the core remains the same
These are the times to remember
I just hope that they last forever

Older bud wiser
Been through the grinder
Since a teen this has shaped who I am
We’ve done this before
Coming back for more
Since a teen this has shaped who I am

I feel right at home and not alone
Come one, come all, jointly participate
Put this on a compilation soundtrack
For the struggle for a better way

Older bud wiser
Been through the grinder
Since a teen this has shaped who I am
We’ve done this before
Coming back for more
Since a teen this has shaped who I am

Don’t you dare try to ruin this

It feels good doing this again
With friends that are like family
Our release from the daily grind
Because we love it for the fun
Otherwise, we’re…sick and tired
