Track Name: WEEK 1: The Bed Bug Bash
Burn all your clothes and burn through your cash,
These were the first few thoughts I had
At the bed bug bash

You bring the canvas and I'll bring the poison
You bring the canvas and I'll bring the poison gas
To the bed bug bash

Breakfast lunch and dinner
All begin to swell
All in a row like
Pretty little cockle shells
Holy shit and fucking hell

I want my money back

They're comin out of the woodwork
And they're comin in fast
Don't look now
But this party's being crashed

Watch where you go and watch who you touch
Spread the disease and don't do nothin rash
Bed bug bash
Track Name: WEEK 2: The Law
I don't think you heard what I said / Turn around and hands on your head.
I don't think you know what I know / I can have you followed wherever you go

I don't think you see what I see / I don't think you see what I mean
I don't think you've seen what I've seen / Birdie says your lyin' in front of me

Which is to say / You're guilty in some way

Oh you're guilty in some way, guilty as charged
It's lookin' that way, uh huh, guilty as charged
You're goin' away, uh huh guilty as charged
It's lookin' that way, uh huh

I don't like the look of this place / I don't like the look on your face
I can take a stick to a juve / I can put your kid in a cube if he's rude
You can cry you want us to stop / wait until the war hits your block
We can keep the people in place / I don't think you're gruff 'nuff to stand in my place

Hey yo Anderson said: "You crossed us in your head"

Oh you're guilty in some way, guilty as charged
It's lookin' that way, uh huh, guilty as charged
You're goin' away, uh huh guilty as charged
It's lookin' that way, uh huh

We didn't know how to run until you caught us,
We didn't know how to bleed until you shot at us,
We didn't know how to fight until you taught us to live

We didn't know how to mobilize
We only know how to criticize
I confess my fellow man's a fool
You might be cruel, but baby this is cool.

Guilty as charged (guilty as charged)
Track Name: WEEK 3: Something For Nothing
Dinosaurs in my backyard
Come back to life
Come back tonight
Just sit tight

They'll steal your babies
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights tonight
Alright, we want

Chorus:
Something, something
Something, something
For nothing, nothing, nothing for
Something, something
Something, something
For nothing, nothing, nothing at all

Oh I haven't forgotten
The tragic events of this past year
Burned in my mind
All the time

Don't think twice about taking
Some personal time
Some personal time
Well, personally I want

[Chorus]
Track Name: WEEK 4: Earth
Watched the Earth from orbit leisurely
Felt the blood from my head rush to my feet
Wrote a letter, said my last goodbyes
Took some time to find myself in the field where I died

Never have I felt so small
Find my way back from the fall
We lost it all so long ago
But we're trying to find that old Earth
We're trying to find that old Earth

Feels like an interview
I did the best with what I had
In a nuclear attack

I miss the sky so blue
That used to come down from you
And there's no going back, I know
But we're trying to find that old Earth
We're trying to find that old Earth
We're trying to find that old Earth

(That's when the stars fell)
Track Name: WEEK 5: Another One
It's not so difficult filling time
I find discoveries that I don't like

You don't know me I said
But I don't for sure, I don't either at all

You made me doubt myself
It's fine. Another one
You made me blink at the dream
I'm fine. Another one

But they don't know me like you
They don't know me like you

It's difficult lookin' at stuff you made
The thoughts delayed, but worth the wait.

You don't know me I said
What a foolish phrase. So foolish to engage.

You made me doubt myself
It's fine. Another one
You made me blink at the dream
I'm fine. Another one

But they don't know me like you
They don't know me like you

It's difficult it's difficult.
It's difficult it's difficult.

When will I see you again? When will I see you again?
You've been rallied round, you've been rallied round your friends
Quit blocking down, quit blocking my way
Your hands are so real in this moment.

Don't stay don't go don't stay don't go. etc.
Track Name: WEEK 6: Know Harm
You looked after us alone
You looked after us alone

My hypothesis was wrong
And I paid the price
You will come to know harm

You may not have noticed
We turned them inside out
We're ready to believe you
Just give us a shout

You looked after us alone
You looked after us alone

My hypothesis was wrong
And I paid the price
You will come to know harm
Track Name: WEEK 7: The Administration
Trusting your secrets to no one
Ensures that no one
Remembers your name

Just keeping tabs on the neighbours
As a neighbourly favour
We feel no shame

Our children are raised by another
By our big brother
The nanny cam shows

We struggle to pay our back taxes
As the tax man relaxes
And that's how it goes

The administration
The administration
The administration
The administra

Leave work and go to your night job
It's always the right job
For minimum wage

Father forgive us our debts
As we're placing our bets
That they'll never get paid

Who keeps us greedy
When we're getting by?

And who keeps us down
When we wanna get high?

The administration
Track Name: WEEK 8: Kid with Gun
God help the brother who goes it alone
Most blessed are those boys who help out their own

Crack the whip, you don’t know shit about us, (bullets clip grenade)
You don’t know what you made, (bullets clip grenade)
A couple years and everything undone
Move over. we are the Kid with Gun

We are, we are the kid with gun.
We are, we are the kid with gun.

Boot knife and dog fight, we keep what we kill
A box of food or two will help ease the guilt
Keep your grief, that don`t mean too much to us, (bullets clip grenade)
Cut the shit and call a spade a spade a spade (bullets clip grenade)
A couple weeks and look what we become
We`re angry. We are the Kid with Gun

Imagine that, look at me dad, you`re all that we had... were all of us bad....
You`re all that we knew, thought we could count on you, so far… Below par

We are, we are the kid with gun.
We are, we are the kid with gun.
