Track Name: 7 Cents
We evangelize, judge us on expertise
No room for prejudice, between the binary
But then cut and paste, her resume with mine
She’s more experienced, but she makes 7 cents of every dime

Politics, Policy
Punishment for women trying to succeed
Status Quo, misogyny
Overqualified, I think we’ve found our next secretary

The knowledge she’s gained, in constant scrutiny
Every mistake a threat to job security
But then cut and paste in her mistakes with mine
They’re giving me a raise, while only checking out her bottom line

Politics, Policy
Punishment for women who try to take the lead
Status Quo, misogyny
Overqualified, I think we’ve found our next secretary

Politics and policy, drowning in misogyny
Politics and policy, keeping women on their knees

Politics, Policy
Punishment for women who try to take the lead
Status Quo, misogyny
She’s qualified to fuck, but not to fucking run your company
Track Name: Boss Level
Inflated ego it goes perfect with his suit and tie
the corner office is his courtroom and its eye for an eye
in judgment of all his old colleagues
despite his own past discrepancies

He’s making us all work late
all so he’ll get a raise for increased efficiency

We spend our lives trying to be the boss
and when we succeed
no matter the cost it still counts as a loss
when you think you’re above who you used to be

He’s made it clear to us that he is not “One of the team”
and too important now to make his own morning coffee
a hard day of passing down the blame
and taking credit not his to claim

He’s really stressing me out!
I’ve got a wife and a house!
and you're not fucking this up for me!

We spend our live trying to be the boss
and when we succeed
no matter the cost, it still counts as a loss
when its not by your example that you lead

We spend our lives trying to be the boss
and when we succeed
no matter the cost I’ll write you off as a loss
when you think you’re above who you used to be
Used to be
When you think you’re above who you used to be
Used to be
When you think you’re above who you used to be
Track Name: pwning n00bs
Hi Score! Headshot! Kill streak! Pwning! noobs like you!

Johnny skipped school for the arcade
no video game that he hasn't played
no job, no kids, no wife, no chores
in life his only goal, achieve the highest score

His parents basement's where he thrives
the only place he's in control
a trophy case built in his mind
accomplishments of a life all virtual!

Fast forward now he's 22
Sponsored by IGN and Code Red Mountain Dew
Parents pretend they used to care
how they love little johnny boy cause he's a millionaire

He'd been a loser all his life
Now he gets paid for pwning noobs
and if he keeps playing things right
maybe tonight he'll get to touch his very first…
MOM I TOLD YOU TO KNOCK WHEN I’M IN MY ROOM!

His parents basement's where he thrives
his old career left at the door
He sure could use an extra life
Turned pro at 18 but retired at 24!
Track Name: Rumor Mill
No privacy, the words at work we speak
Get played like a game of telephone
Whispered disrespect, the cords around your neck
Hanging you on all your hang-ups
Once you succeed, a wave of jealousy
Washes over those that you called friend
Smiling to your face, until you turn away
Judging you from stories in their head
In their heads they’re telling

Lies, crushing the truth between their teeth
Grinding their jaws in perjury
Deceit moves on with every new turn in the wheel
At the Rumor Mill

Like emo songs
You feel you don't belong
Trying so hard to just fit in
Instead of staying strong, you're turning on your own
Find the weakest link and slit their wrists
In their heads they’re telling

Lies, tasting the bitterness of guilt
Your innocence has been killed, for your pride
Find yourself stuck in the wheel of
Lies, watching them crush the truth in their teeth
Grinding their jaws in perjury
Deceit moves on with every new turn in the wheel
At the Rumor Mill
Track Name: The Consultant
Weekend warrior brought in by the brass
Look at all these suckers, their lips puckered
Ready to kiss ass
Hired gunman loves everyone who has the cash
But the slow knife pulls a fast one
When he's taking interest back

One more ghost town
Left in his wake
He'll be the one
For twice the pay

It says snake-oil salesman on his resume
Watch him shoot his budget slash and cut it
To make his bonus pay
Master Jedi caught the red eye so he could save
Us from all these deadlines tomorrow's headlines
We're claiming bankruptcy

One more ghost town
Left in his wake
He'll be the one
For twice the pay

No loyalty
Without reward
The jobs he saves
Will be outsourced
