Track Name: I Wanna Skate
I wanna skate / I wanna skate / I cannot wait / Till the end of the day / I wanna skate / I wanna skate / I cannot wait / Till the end of the day

We're gonna rip / Gonna terrorize / Concrete lip / For my daily grind / Won't go to school / I don't need to / Don't need grades / Just an empty pool

I wanna skate / I wanna skate / I cannot wait / Till the end of the day / I wanna skate / I wanna skate / I cannot wait / Till the end of the day

Not goin' to work / What a sham / A bunch of jerks / I'd rather slam / To a show / Wanna go? / Gonna skate / Don't be late

I'm gonna skate / I'm gonna skate / I will not wait / Till the end of the day / I'm gonna skate / I gonna skate / I will not wait / Till the end of the day

Track Name: Alberta Rat Patrol
We sailed to the maritimes / And marched across the land / We crossed a magic border / Into a promise land / We cleared out the natives / We cut down the trees / And when we were done / There was not a rat to see!

We're the Alberta rat patrol! / We've got everything under control / Come to Albert it's so clean / Come to Alberta it's so nice to see / We got a magic line that keeps us rat free / We have no rats only opportunity!

We cleaned out the trees / And guess what we did see / A virgin land primed / to give up goods to you and me / We drilled into the ground / We pumped out the oil / We dumped the waste products / Into the air and soil / And when the smoke cleared / It was plain to see / This great land of Alberta / Was still rat free!

We're the Alberta rat patrol! / We've got everything under control / Come to Albert it's so clean / Come to Alberta it's so nice to see / We got a magic line that keeps us rat free / We have no rats only opportunity!

No rats aren't the problem / In fact their kinda cute / Alberta rat free / I'd rather it not be / The real pest here / Is one that's plainly seen / It's dirty politicians / And counterpart corporate greed / If you want to see / A land that is free / Bring back the rats and drive out the fat cats!

We're the Alberta rat patrol! / We've got everything under control / Come to Albert it's so clean / Come to Alberta it's so nice to see / We got a magic line that keeps us rat free / We have no rats only opportunity!

We're the Alberta rat patrol! / We've got everything under control / Come to Albert it's so clean / Come to Alberta it's so nice to see / We got a magic line that keeps us rat free / We have no rats only opportunity!
Track Name: A Public Service Announcement Regarding the Royal Albert Arms Hotel
I wanna take you to the Albert / I wanna bludgeon your head / And write your name up on the walls with your intestines / It's not weird / It happens all the time.

I wanna take you to the Albert / I wanna bludgeon your head / And write "Fuck you!" on the walls with your intestines / I'm not crazy / I think about it all the time.

I wanna take you to the Albert / I wanna take you to the Albert / I wanna take you to the Albert / And show you a real good time
Track Name: Macho Bullshit
Songs supposedly forged in inclusion and in change / But your bullshit is just keeping things the same / I'm sorry that you're sad / But that makes no one a whore / We've got no time for your macho bullshit anymore / I cringe every time your open up your mouth / Please tell me that's not all this is about / It's macho bullshit, macho bullshit, nothing more / Macho bullshit, macho bullshit, macho bullshit / But I'd like to acknowledge your achievements / Way to alienate a crowd
Track Name: Men's Rights Activism is Bad and You Should Feel Bad
Men's rights, men's rights / Want to vomit at the sight / Waste of time, waste of space / Misguided, masculine disgrace / Men's rights, men's rights / Want to vomit at the sight / So sorry the oppressed have stood up and begun to fight

You speak of misandry / So clear why can't we see? / Court cases, false allegations / Oh no, are women misbehaving? / Another tick of the clock / Violence, another a woman lost / 600 indigenous women / More deadly than military precision

Men's rights, men's rights / Want to vomit at the sight / Waste of time, waste of space / Misguided, masculine disgrace / Men's rights, men's rights / Want to vomit at the sight / So sorry the oppressed have stood up and begun to fight

But I can hear an MRA getting pissy / And my eyes are rolling quickly / "But what about the false allegations?" / Go fuck yourself / You speak of misandry / But it's so clear to me / Misogyny by any other / Name is still a fucking killer
Track Name: Personal Day
Personal day / I don't need money anyway / Sit on the couch / Waste my life away / Remote control / T.V. shows / I don't know / Spinning wheel / Can't tell how I feel

Called in sick because the boss is a dick / Gonna sit at home, unplug the phone / Watch t.v. until my eyes start to bleed / Work? / No way! / Take a personal day

Sit on the couch / Do the lazyboy slouch / Stare at the wall, make a phone call / I'm not coming in / I've been worn thin / Worked my hands to the bone, and I'm staying at home

Overtime and underpaid / I don't need your minimum wage

Called in sick because the boss is a dick / Gonna sit at home, unplug the phone / Watch t.v. until my eyes start to bleed / Work? / No way! / Take a personal day
Track Name: Supplement Your Income
Supplement your income / Steal a fucking printer / Supplement your income / Never buy toilet paper

When I went to work today / I stole and brought a shopping cart / Now I've got 24 calculators / And that's just the start / I won football tickets at the company draw / Sold 'em to the jock down the hall / When he was at the game / I stole his fucking piece of shit computer

I'm a PC guy, but Macs have higher resale value

Everyone steal from work today / Can't make it by on minimum wage / Supper's gonna be warm today / I stole my boss' microwave

If you work for minimum wage / And you know your bills won't get paid / Skim it from the top, just skim it from the top / Steal it from your boss, just steal it from your boss / Black market pencils and paper clips /ome to my cubicle if you need some shit / Redistributing pricy office supplies / Underground workers network to survive

Which one of you pencil-neck dicks stole my computer?

Everyone steal from work today / Can't make it by on minimum wage / Supper's gonna be warm today / I stole my boss' microwave

Supplement your income / Supplement your income / Supplement your income / Steal it from your boss
Track Name: Stephen Harper Stomp
We bought your lies before / Your solemn throne speech song / Thought you would keep the peace / The true north strong and free / Instead you left our troops at war / Dead Afghanis on the floor / Tax us for the infrastructure / Cluster bombs for the others

But now we're / Not gonna waste no time at all / Gonna resist you until you fall / Won't let you talk down to me / We're gonna fight you until we're free / Stephen Harper stomp

Cowardly war criminal / We never had to stay at war / But America said to jump / So Afghanistan got the dump / Never wanted to set them free / Just wanted to make them bleed / And now it's time for us / Stop your colonial greed

But now we're / Not gonna waste no time at all / Gonna resist you until you fall / Won't let you talk down to me / We're gonna fight you until we're free

Stephen Harper stomp / Stephen Harper stomp / Stomp, stomp, stomp / Stephen Harper Stomp / Stomp, stomp / Stephen Harper stomp / Stomp, stomp, stomp / Stephen Harper stomp
Track Name: Edmonton Handshake
Hey, what are you doing trying to cross the street? I drive a truck. Can't you see that I'm important and I have places to be? Fake nuts hanging from the back. Naked women on my mudflaps. I think it's clear to see that I'm so comfortable being me. And I work from home. I drive a truck, can't you see? Mother, mother, mother please look at me.
Track Name: Another Casualty
I know you got out your bedazzler to go to the Casualties show, but the Casualties suck. Throw out your patches. Unravel your scarves. Burn your t-shirts. Go home.
