Track Name: Drunkard's Lament
Well the only men I trust
Are named Jimmy John and Jack
And it's awful hard to run
With the devil on your back
And I run and I run
But I know I don't get far
When the only thing I turn to
Is the bottle and the jar

I know it isn't right
For to live this way
And whiskey is the cure
And the cause of all my pain
But when I come home
And the world has kicked my ass
Well it all looks much better
From the bottom of a glass

This one's for Jack (Jack!)
You've always been a friend
One for Jimmy (Jimmy!)
You'll be here til the end
Another bottle for John (John!)
To keep me going strong
But above all this one's for you

See I've had girls as pure as vodka
Some as bubbly as champagne
But the only one I've loved is stout
She takes away my pain
But when I come home
The pleasantries are few
I lie awake
And I knock back a few

This one's for Jack (Jack!)
You've always been a friend
One for Jimmy (Jimmy!)
You'll be here til the end
Another bottle for John (John!)
To keep me going strong
But above all this one's for you

Well the only men I trust
Are named Jimmy John and Jack
And it's awful hard to run
With the devil on your back
And I run and I run
But I know I don't get far
When the only thing I turn to
Is the bottle and the jar

This one's for Jack (Jack!)
You've always been a friend
One for Jimmy (Jimmy!)
You'll be here til the end
Another bottle for John (John!)
To keep me going strong
But above all this one's for you

This one's for Jack (Jack!)
One for Jimmy (Jimmy!)
Another bottle for John (John!)
But above all this one's for you
But above all this one's for you
Track Name: Never Again
Well for years you've divided
To get your own way
With wars as distractions
You've kept us at bay
Ideologies and struggles
All made by you
We see through your lies
And tell you you're screwed

See for years you've told us
That drugs are the devil
But you've failed to bring legislations
That's racially level
Putting minorities in jail
At a much higher rate
This is nothing more than
State-sponsored legislated hate

Never again will we be distracted
Never again will we be placated
Never again will we listen to your lies
We know what we want and we won't compromise

And you gave us religion
But we know it's a lie
For you only use it as
A means to divide
At Protestant kills Catholic
And Muslim kills Jew
You sit on the sidelines
Thinkin' only of you

Never again will we be distracted
Never again will we be placated
Never again will we listen to your lies
We know what we want and we won't compromise

Never again will we be distracted
Never again will we be placated
Never again will we listen to your lies
We know what we want and we must organize
We know what we want and we won't compromise
