My 'Splinter' booklet does have the lyrics for "The Noose"...

The Noose
Well our souls are all mistaken in the same misguided way
We all end up forsaken, we‘re just choosing our own way
The future now incinerates before our very eyes
And leaves us with emptiness of no more tries

Well our visions of glory have spiraled down the drain
The best of our intentions come crashing down in flames
The depths of our despair we are unable to contain
It‘s shallow living

The noose is falling
And all my friends are crawling
The noose is falling
And enemies are rising
A truth appalling
Our mak‘r comes a calling
The noose is falling
And enemies are rising

Well the tracers from yesteryear are burning in the dust
Your bruises are reminders of naivete and trust
You‘re only feeling stronger cause your body‘s getting numb
Now I lay you down
Put the coins in your eyes
And blow the candles out

The noose is falling
And all my friends are crawling
The noose is falling
And enemies are rising
A truth appalling
Our mak‘r comes a calling
The noose is falling
And enemies are rising

No more!
No more!
Nothing!

No more!
No more!
Ever!
No!
More!

Well then you have been pretty ignorant. If you look closely you'll find it right under Neocon in the CD booklet...

Mine had The Noose, but no When You're In Prison, which I'm pretty sure everyone's doesn't have.

Yeah, that's true. If someone wants them, here they are:

When you're in prison
When you're in prison, don't turn the other way
Keep your back against the wall
When you're in prison, don't turn the other way
Do not bend at all

Oh don't pick up the soap, pick up the soap
It's bad for you

Oh don't pick up the soap, pick up the soap
Someone will be waiting there for you

When you're in prison be sure to stay awake
Always lie upon your back

When you're in prison be sure to stay awake
Keep you from attack

Oh don't be no one's bitch, be no one's bitch
It's bad for you

Oh don't be no one's bitch, be no one's bitch
They won't help you make it through.

When you're in prison, don't turn the other way
Follow what I say to do.

When you're in prison, don't turn the other way
You can make it through
You can make it through
You can make it through

I think that song is about drugs and what not taking control of friends and destoying old friendships

Our souls are all mistaken in the same misguided way: we all have our problems

We all end up forsaken were just choosing our own way: we're all ending up dead were just choosing our own way

The future now incinerates before our very eyes: our hopes for the future are destroyed little by little every time we light up

And it leaves us with the emptiness of no more tries: now that our life has been ruined with this stuff we have nothing to live for

Visions of our glory now comes spiriling down the drain: all that we've lived up to be has gone to waste

The best of our intensions come crashing down in flames: Though we've tried to stay good we eventually gave in

The depths of our despair we are unable to contain: we cant stop doing it

Its shallow living: its bad living knowing your a worthless statistic

The Noose has fallen: drugs have come and wrecked us

And all my friends are crawling: all your friends have fallen to temptation

The Noose has fallen: same as before

And enimies are rising: since you didn't join the rest you dont fit in and your all alone

A truth apalling: its unbelieveable and too real

Our Mak'r comes a calling: our elders are getting involved and your being put to the test

the noose is falling: same as before

and enemies are ising same as before

The tracers from the yesteryear are burning in the dust: all the old days of drug, worry free, and good clean fun are gone forever

Your bruises are reminders of naivete and trust: Your hurt from all thats happening and painful to look back

Your only feeling stronger cause your body's feeling numb: you only think its getting better because it cant get any worse

Now I lay You Down put the coins in your eyes and blow the candles out whoao!(my favorite offspring verse ever): you watch your friends die and fade away and give up

all the same as before

No More!
No More! Nothing!
No More! : never again will you let this happen
Ever!!



does anyone else agree with me?

I'm pretty sure it had the words in everyones CD. Someone just left their glasses at the retirement village.
