Faces 03:01
There’s a neon flashing sign Caught between your moonlight life A crashing ship falling to earth to get this over and Take me where I disconnect my mind Kill my heart and break my spine Trade it in for something better like dishonesty Well, let me off… I’m freaking out And there’s no coming down We’re all just faces now We’re lost within the crowd Hands and knees are to the floor Praying we can’t take no more And the taxman’s at your door to bend you over And there’s no opposition from the left And the right’s a goddamn mess A deadly pill we’ll all ingest To get this over soon Well let me off… I’m freaking out And there’s no coming down We’re all just faces now We’re lost within the crowd No I’m not giving in To legalized mortal sin We’re all just faces now We’re lost within the crowd
Receiver 03:45
I can't sleep and it's late And there's nothing to watch but the TV's on And I don't want to stay awake with my mind spinning circles on and off There's really gotta be a better way 'cause I don't want to fake it today And my heart's beating out loud Take it all back now Hush, don't make any noise How many times did you pretend when you knew it? When all I needed was a friend you left me there I turn my goddamn radio off your receiver And left my demons at the door So let me go I'm like the walking dead with my head all fucked from the incident Some things are better unsaid when your words come out sound all negative There really has to be a better place A better place somewhere we can relate And I don't want to give it up now Screamin' our lungs out Hush, don't make any noise
Cornerstone 04:07
Hello, my friends It’s good to see you on the other side Way down by the water, dip your feet Till you lose yourself in Rays of sunshine and children laughing in the distance Picture ourselves in fields of grass Where’s there’s no more worry This won’t let go Who builds to watch it fall? And I don’t wanna know If we’ve lost it all This is my cornerstone In a world that’s falling apart And we have left home tonight Transmission send I feel her love conquer our genocide We place the flowers on the grave Of the ones who’ve died in vein Hold my hand now Let’s take a trip around the universe We feel our bodies breathe new life Like the sun so close behind
Darling 03:37
Step back, better think this out, oh no You don’t wanna lose another year She owns your heart but you don’t know where to go We crossed tracks And then we talked back We kind of shared a laugh Then it all poured out This love is the one I need for me But I cannot breathe I couldn’t hold it in I felt the wearing thin of the time that passed us by Because we’ve got a promise that no one could ever deny And we’ve lost control My hands are tied behind me The fear of never finding somebody To shine a light so blinding Not today My eyes give me away Hold up Wait a minute What’s goin’ down, you know? Because I’m really kinda lovin’ this Afterthought So who’d a thought that she’d ever wanna get close? But you’ll never know The way she talks to me It’s like a vivid dream that I don’t want to wake up from And with looks that could kill she’s got me all over the floor So we Rock ’N’ Roll Throwback We on a brand new track She’s still a heart attack up on the dance floor She’s still got that power over me I’m now weak in the knees You know that I want this thing to grow I don’t wanna let it go I just wanna know that I matter so
I’m like a broken record you know I go on and on And I keep looking at the phone And you still don’t call Don’t wanna face these problems alone I hate them all There’s blood and tears we sweat at home I’m still trying You can’t take it Your heart’s breaking Inside my soul is dying Or are we just an afterthought? Spent Emotion You’ve got me hanging on a wire But in this moment I am longing for desire Back to the line and back to the line again Too many days since you’ve been gone I held the words on my tongue as it slipped down my lungs And went head first straight into rush hour Came out bloodied up with a voice that screamed louder And on and it said
Maybelline 04:07
Got into my car We drove down to the local bar Smoking cigarettes and laughing the whole way You said, “Let’s get a room. I just wanna wake up to you” And those words were all I needed at the time It was foolish romance… Maybelline You’re the girl of my dreams Falling for you, Angel Blue It was pure at the seams Had me shaking at my knees But it wasn’t there for you And I had to let you go Now it’s nine months to the day We swore we’d never end up this way But those cigarettes are ashes from their flames Now I barely talk to you We’re different corners of the room What did we ever think could come of selfish games? It was foolish romance… Slap some sense back into me I’ve been thinking with this organ That just leaves me lost and broke, Angel Face You’re still the one for me Maybe I’m talking in my sleep And I just need someone to wake me from this dream
Riptide 11:43
She’s been struttin’ down the street in her new dress But underneath she’s a damsel in distress Can you believe that she walked out in the morning? No love, no nothing for you All is lost, late night Now you’re drinkin' Call it quits, you’ve got everything to lose Idiot, brain-dead, are you stupid? You’re now drowning In fact, you’re out on your own Under attack It’s up to us, it’s do or die So take my hand And pull me under your riptide Is it in vein to say let’s give it one more try Or walk away until the next goodbye And with her gameface on so confident She’s on another page and oblivious Can you believe that these things keep repeating? With no hope and not knowing what to do Heavy thoughts, long-waits, and now she’s talkin' I’m out of words ‘cause you know it’s not the truth Giving up, but if only we were perfect But hands down she’s the one you’ll never let go All this time I was lost Couldn’t find my way back home The sea’s so large A new year, a new day, a new direction Headed back to safety in her arms


With overtones ranging from bands like The Police, Elvis Costello and The Attractions, The Replacements, to The Living End, The New Addiction utilize their love of Rock 'N' Roll (past and present) to mend aggressive music and catchy melodies with heartfelt lyrics and dazzling harmonies.
