Track Name: Ice Age
Ice Age
(Mike Vallely / Matthew Ryan)

I’m riding through the endless narrows 
Through the snow drifts on the road
Out of the seething city
With winter in my soul

Trophies, accolades, possessions
That energy burns you up
When you're measured by pain and motion
You’re sipping blood from a paper cup

It's an ice age
It’s an ice age
It's an ice age
I know

On the edge of self-destruction
Raise a glass to how far we’ve come
If we're on fire and alive
The oceans know what’s done is done

It’s an ice age
It’s an ice age
It's an ice age
You know

Never mind the failures
If it be our final bell
If this defeat becomes permanent
Smile and travel well

Through an ice age
An ice age
It's an ice age
We know

There’s still music, art and poetry
They are my headlights in the freezing rain
And if you knew me only as you needed to
Just know, you only knew my name

In an ice age
It’s an ice age
It's an ice age
We know

Never mind the failures
If it be our final bell
If this defeat becomes permanent
Smile and travel well

Through an ice age
An ice age
It's an ice age
We know

It’s an ice age
It’s an ice age
It's an ice age
I know
Track Name: Rise Above
Rise Above
(Greg Ginn)


Jealous cowards try to control
They distort what we say 
They try and stop what we do
When they can't do it themselves

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us, it's no use

Society's arms of control
They think they're smart, can't think for themselves
They laugh at us behind our backs
I find satisfaction in what they lack

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us, it's no use

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us, it's no use

We are born with a chance
I am going to have my chance
We are born with a chance
I am going to have my chance

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us, it's no use

Rise above
We're gonna rise above
Rise above
We gotta rise above
Rise above
C’mon let’s rise above
Rise above
We gotta rise above

Rise above
We're gonna rise above
Rise above
C’mon let’s rise above
Rise above
We're gonna rise above
Rise above
Let’s rise above

Rise above
We're gonna rise above
Rise above
We gotta rise above
Rise above
C’mon let’s rise above
Rise above
We gonna rise above
Track Name: My Girl
My Girl
(Mike Vallely / Matthew Ryan)

Don't think for a minute
That everything is doom
What you are is bigger 
It's bigger than this room

My girl
The future is yours
My girl
The future is yours

I see you now
So broke and so uncertain
But something else comes
After you've been hurtin'

My girl
The future is yours
My girl
The future is yours

My girl
The future is yours
My girl
The future is yours
Track Name: My Girl (Demo)

Don't think for a minute

The future is yours
My girl
The future is yours

I see you now
So broke and so uncertain
But something else comes
After you've been hurtin'

My girl
The future is yours
My girl
The future is yours

My girl
The future is yours
My girl
The future is yours
