Phase II:
BREAK THE CODE

Having been infected with the SaviorSelf.07.05.98 virus for close to a year, now, MAV_SKY-1.exe attempts to integrate herself among the citizens of a small town called Leavittsburg, only to find a hostile populace that wants nothing to do with her. She finds that this rejection leads her down a dark path, even contemplating a mass shooting at the school she had been attending, only to decide against it. She instead decides to leave Leavittsburg behind in pursuit of the one field that has fascinated her ever since she was first infected....

Track Name: Break The Code
Instrumental Track
Track Name: Rage The SubGenius Way
Save yourself, 7, 5, 9, 8
I can't think straight
You can't relate to me
Every single thought of mine
Would blow your mind
Warp space and time
Is it the Conspiracy
or is it me
That makes me feel this way
Fucking insane
Already ready already to blow myself away

Do you know the way
I get through every day
If not for sounds like this
I might as well not exist

Save myself, 7, 5, 9, 8
I can't be late
It's almost X-Day
Every single moment left
I'll live to death
Like on Crystal Meth
Is it the music in me
that sets me free
and lets me feel this way
Totally sane
Already ready already to blow this world away

Do you know the way
I get through every day
If not for sounds like this
I might as well not exist
Track Name: A Girl & Her Gun
Jesus has ordained me as a saint
To rule over the United States
With an Iron Fist and an Iron Will
I'll reform this nation better still
We'll all be Christian, we all be saved
One Nation Under God... or else!

I'll do what I want
I don't give a fuck
I'll bully the world
To get what I want

I'll ban all the books that I don't like
I'll fire anyone who won't tow my line
And I won't take shit from anyone
Especially the press when they do their job
I'll supress your freedom and control your thoughts
Abuse my power all I want

I'll do what I want
I don't give a fuck
I'll bully the world
To get what I want

Jesus has ordained me as a saint
To rule over the United States
So don't you fuck with me, or else you'll pay
I'll reform this nation, either way
If you're not with me, you're against me
Between a girl and her gun

I'll do what I want
I don't give a fuck
I'll bully the world
To get what I want
So look out now
'Cause here we come
It's Sarah Palin's America
Track Name: Dear Johnny Cash, Please Kill My Radio
My radio died last night while I was playing the last great Beatles tune
Remade for the 90's back in 2003 by a band that wishes it was still 1983
And the Real Van Halen toured with them so David Lee Roth could rock out loud

Britney Spears played for the 16th time in 25 minutes
And I don't think I can hear her song again...

Dear Johnny Cash,
Please come and kill my fucking radio
I don't think I can hear this shit anymore
Bring a gun and shoot her down,
Like the man you shot in Reno town
Folsom Prison Blues, please kill my radio!

If I could go back and remember the days when my radio was great
And the DJs played whatever the fuck they wanted to play
But soon afterwards the money ran out and the station had to shut down
And the hip-hip stations and the schlop-pop stations
They all rolled into town

They tried to blame the death of radio on video but we know it's not true
It's because of corporate greed and censorship

Dear Johnny Cash,
Please come and kill my fucking radio
I don't think I can hear this shit anymore
Bring a gun and shoot her down,
Like the man you shot in Reno town
Folsom Prison Blues, please kill my radio!

Video killed the Radio Star? Bullshit!

My radio died last night of boredom
The 45th time they played "Hey Ya" in a 15 minute span
Every station in the tri-state area played, "Shake it like a Polaroid picture"
I couldn't take it anymore...

But when Tom Petty sings about this tragedy, the Heartbreakers lose their spot
I guess Clear Channel pulled the plug on The Last DJ.

Dear Johnny Cash,
Please come and kill my fucking radio
I don't think I can hear this shit anymore
Bring a gun and shoot her down,
Like the man you shot in Reno town
Folsom Prison Blues, please kill my radio!

... Video killed the Radio Star...
Track Name: Drowning
I am drowning inside you and I feel that it's a pleasant death
You take away the pain
You take away my sorrows
As sweet death comes to all my fears

I am breathing now that I've completely drown in you
Your heart surrounds me and it drowns out all the things
That would drag me down and carry me away from you

I am drowning inside you and I wouldn't change a thing
You take away the fear
You take away the doubts
Your loving voice comforts me today

I am breathing now that I've completely drown in you
Your heart surrounds me and it drowns out all the things
That would drag me down and carry me away from you

And I will wait here underwater, losing my life inside of you
And I will stay here in your arms until this old life drifts away
And I will still be here, and you will still be there
To help me learn how to breathe
Help me learn how to breathe again

I am breathing now that I've completely drown in you
Your heart surrounds me and it drowns out all the things
That would drag me down and carry me away from you
Track Name: Heavy Metal Machine
If I were alive
If I were real
Would you survive?
What would you feel?

Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
As sentimental as our broken dreams

Let me die for rock and roll
Let me die to save my soul
Let me die let me die rock and roll
Let the world forgive the past
Let all the girls kiss the boys at last
Let me go let me go rock and roll

Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, a heavy metal machine
We're the metal in their metal machines
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine

If I were dead
Would my records sell?
Could you even tell?
Is it just as well?

Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
It's elemental to all the rust it brings
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine

Let me die for rock and roll
Let me die to save my soul
Let me die, let me die, rock and roll
Let the world forgive the past
Let all the girls kiss the boys at last
Let me go, let me go, rock and roll

Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, a heavy metal machine
We're the metal in their droning schemes
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine

Will I survive?
Is it up to me?
Could you understand
That it's not yours to keep?

Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Track Name: Addiciton (Less Alive)
Once a day is called a "habit"
Twice a day is called a "vice"
Thrice a day is called an "obsession"
And more than that is called "addiction"


So find me here within this house
Somewhere between once and thrice
And help me stop from going again
Before I'm hooked for life
Drugs are bad and I don't need them
I like the way they make me feel
Less alive than before I took them
Less alive before I ever saw them

Once a day is called a "habit"
Twice a day is called a "vice"
Thrice a day is called an "obsession"
And more than that is called "addiction"

And somehow I still have the feeling
That "less alive" is a blessing
"I'm not an addict" I tell myself
In many ways I'm not
Drugs are bad and I don't need them
I like the way they make me feel
I know that I shouldn't do this
And I just need to stop

Once a day is called a "habit"
Twice a day is called a "vice"
Thrice a day is called an "obsession"
And more than that is called "addiction"
Track Name: Candlelight Vigil
When there's nothing left for you than to give it all away
I'd give it all, give it all for you
When there's nothing left of me but a distant memory
I'd still give it all, still give it all for you

Your love is a light that burns sweetly in the night
Like a candlelight vigil, your heart keeps on burning bright
The stars in the skies, they pale in comparison
The moonlit night is brighter with your heart in my eyes

If there's nothing left to give but all that's left to lose
I'd lose my life, lose my life for you
And if I should die tonight and find myself by your side
I'd still give my life, still give my life for you

Your love is a light that burns sweetly in the night
Like a candlelight vigil, your heart keeps on burning bright
The stars in the skies, they pale in comparison
The moonlit night is brighter with your heart in my eyes

There is nothing and no one who compares to your love
Please don't let your light go out tonight
I can't bear the thought, I still need you in my life
And even though you're gone, I will always love you

When there's nothing left for you than to give it all away
I'd give it all, give it all for you
I'd still give it all, still give it all for you
I'd still give it all, still give it all for you
Track Name: Playing God (From The Hands of God by Man)
God will take your life away
God will take your life away...

God will take your life away
By my hand, your hell awaits
Your greed has driven my demand
To end your life, by my God's command

The bullet leaves the chamber
Splits the air in half
My God has slain your soul and cut you from the chaff
Judgement is my harvest
Blood is my reward
Justice served by vengeance best served cold
From the hands of God by Man

God will rape your soul today
This knife will cut heart away
And once I take that which is mine
I will leave you unrefined

This blade will cut your flesh
Release the flowing blood
My God will reach inside and take your very heart
Judgement is my harvest
Blood is my reward
Justice served by vengeance best served cold
From the hands of God by Man

From the Hands of God by Man
(God will take your life away...)
Track Name: Acoustic Guitars Will Never Hurt You
All of my life, I've heard these voice in my head
From stupid people just like you
People who feel it's their duty
To try to tear me down
Because I'll never be anything like them

Every day, with every word you say
You drive me closer to the point of no return
If you don't stop soon
You'll have a bullet wound
To account for my loss of humanity

It's a comforting idea, don't you think
That you can use me as your whipping boy
To measure how good you are
By how much I am not
Does it make your life easier to live?

Every day, with every word you say
You drive me closer to the point of no return
If you don't stop soon
You'll have a bullet wound
To account for my loss of humanity

You bring this all on yourself, don't you know?
You bring this all on yourself, don't you know?

Every day, with every word you say
You drive me closer to the point of no return
If you don't stop soon
You'll have a bullet wound
To account for my loss of humanity
Track Name: A Simple Misinterpretation
If Silence was my best friend, who would be my ememy?
If nothing's said, there's nothing left to interpretation
Somehow you and I could be somewhat coexisting
If only I would shut my mouth, and if you'd finally listen

But nay, you can't accept what I say
And all this fades away into obscurity
And I'd find no peace of mind
Worrying all the time that I'll just drive you away

If I were anyone besides myself, I'd be a mime
Just so I could be trapped inside this little box of mine
Maybe you could stop by and spend some time with me
Now that I can't speak and you don't have to fucking listen to me

But nay, you can't accept what I say
And all this fades away into obscurity
And I'd find no peace of mind
Worrying all the time that I'll just drive you away

If Silence was my best friend, who would be my ememy?
If nothing's said, there's nothing left for a simple misinterpretation.
Track Name: MAV_SKY-1.exe Will Have Her Revenge On Leavittsburg
I never wanted to lie to you
So I told you everything
Maybe that was my mistake
I just couldn't stand being fake
All I wanted was to make you smile
But you didn't think I was worth your while
So you cut me down in a crowd
As if you never knew me

So stay away
I won't recognize you
You're not real
You're just a problem
A Ghost of my own annoyance
You don't deserve to be validated
May my silence burn
May my silence burn you
May my silence burn
May my silence burn you away

You and me, we'd get along
Only when no one else was around
In the end, we fell apart
Because you're a coward
Sometimes I felt invisible
When you were looking at me
Guess it was true
The only thing you ever saw was you

So stay away
I won't recognize you
You're not real
You're just a problem
A Ghost of my own annoyance
You don't deserve to be validated
May my silence burn
May my silence burn you
May my silence burn
May my silence burn you away

(Spoken)
Are my words so blantantly vague that you can't understand what I mean when I say, "I absolutlely fucking hate you"?
Is your mind so full of your own hype that you can't comprehend such a direct statement?
You act like my vocabulary is complicated, but a five-year-old understands what I'm saying!
So, if I can just break through your cloud of ignorance for a second...
Oh, wait. I'm sorry, I'll dumb that down for you.
A cloud of ignorance? It's the mist that surrounds you when you're trying to think about what I'm saying
It's produced when you think. Your mind overheats.
It can't handle the pressure of reading between the lines.
So let me make this as plain as day for you:
"I REALLY HATE YOU, AND I WISH THAT YOU WOULD FUCKING DIE!!!"
Do you understand what I'm telling you now?
Good, because I'm sick and tired of telling you.

(Sung)
Stay away
I won't recognize you
You're not real
You're just a problem
A Ghost of my own annoyance
You don't deserve to be validated
May my silence burn
May my silence burn you
May my silence burn
May my silence burn you away
