    Here are the lyrics for "Murder" as copied directly off of the back of the radio promo CD cover - no alterations have been made. All that you see here is just as you'd see it on the cover.

    As you can tell, the final version of the song has slightly different lyrics. Here are the lyrics as I've transcribed them:

    Papa Roach
    "Murder"

    Somewhere beyond happiness and sadness
    I need to calculate what creates my own madness
    And I'm addicted to your punishment
    You're the master, and I am waiting for disaster

    I feel irrational
    So confrontational
    To tell the truth I am getting away with murder
    It is impossible
    To never tell the truth
    But the reality is I'm getting away with murder

    Getting away
    Getting away
    Getting away

    I drink my drink and I don't even want to
    I think my thoughts when I don't even need to
    I never look back 'cause I don't even want to
    And I don't need to because I'm getting away with murder

    I feel irrational
    So confrontational
    To tell the truth I am getting away with murder
    It is impossible
    To never tell the truth
    But the reality is I'm getting away with murder

    Getting away
    Getting away
    Getting away
    Getting away
    Getting away
    Getting away
    Getting away
    Getting away
    Getting away with murder

    Somewhere beyond happiness and sadness
    I need to calculate what creates my own madness
    And I'm addicted to your punishment
    And you're the master, and I am craving this disaster

    I feel irrational
    So confrontational
    To tell the truth I am getting away with murder
    It is impossible
    To never tell the truth
    But the reality is I'm getting away with murder

    Getting away
    Getting away
    Getting away

    I feel irrational
    So confrontational
    To tell the truth I am getting away with murder
    It is impossible
    To never tell the truth
    But the reality is I'm getting away with murder

    Here are the lyrics for "Not Listening" as transcribed by BroknSolace and edited by me:

    Papa Roach
    "Not Listening"

    I'm not listening
    Not anymore
    The more I learn
    The more I ignore
    I'm not listening
    Not anymore
    The more I learn
    The more I ignore
    I'm not listening
    Not anymore
    No

    'Cause you gotta be bigger
    And be faster
    And be stronger
    If you're gonna survive any longer
    And this lifetime
    It better be the right time
    'Cause the first time
    Might be your last time
    Am I failure
    If I got nothing to lose
    No, I'm not a failure
    I've got something to prove

    I'm not listening
    Not anymore
    The more I learn
    The more I ignore
    I'm not listening
    Not anymore
    The more I have
    The more I ignore

    'Cause I've lost my innocence
    And I'm a stranger
    A life changer
    I'm a man that's not afraid of danger
    I walk my own path
    And blaze my own trail
    Because I'm not afraid to derail
    I won't get in line
    Or be your middle man
    So, fuck you, I make my own plans
    And I got respect
    And I don't neglect
    The people that I really care to protect

    Am I a failure
    If I got nothing to lose
    No, I'm not a failure
    I got something to prove

    I'm not listening
    Not anymore
    The more I learn
    The more I ignore
    I'm not listening
    Not anymore
    The more I have
    The more I ignore

    I told you before
    I won't listen no more
    I told you before
    Let's settle the score
    I told you before
    I won't listen no more
    I told you before
    Let's settle the score

    If not me, then who?
    If not now, then when?
    If not me, then who?
    If not now, then when?

    I'm not listening
    Not anymore
    The more I learn
    The more I ignore
    I'm not listening
    Not anymore
    The more I have
    The more I ignore

    I told you before
    I won't listen no more
    I told you before
    Let's settle the score
    I told you before
    I won't listen no more
    I told you before
    Let's settle the score

    Shut it up
    Work it out
    Blow it up
    Set it off
    Fuck it up
    Chuck it out
    Put it up
    Blow it up
    Right now

    I like "Not Listening" and "Murder"... "Done With You" is OK, but the beginning to the lyrics are kind of cheesy.

    I want to hear "Blood"... it sounded good on that little preview.

    I got it from iTunes and the title is Getting Away With Murder. But on the official P Roach player it says Murder. So coming from an official source I would have to say the title is Murder.

    Listening to the player right now. I like the darker tone of voice that Cobey uses in the songs, it sounds awesome.

    From MTV.com:

    Like the insect after which they're named, Papa Roach have adapted to every new environment they've been exposed to. Since their formation in 1993, they have evolved from a raging rap-metal band to a punk-metal hybrid. Through it all, their songs have been united by the belief that life is, for the most part, pretty unfair and meaningless.

    Now, with their third major-label album, September's Getting Away With Murder, Papa Roach have metamorphosed yet again by creating more upbeat-sounding songs with vocal harmonies and positive personal and political themes.

    "We just wanted to reinvent ourselves and create a new Papa Roach for our fans to fall in love with again," said frontman Jacoby Shaddix. "We wanted to push ourselves musically and lyrically and do stuff we've never done before but that our audience would really like. That was the challenge."

    Papa Roach wrote many of the new songs on the road last year, and when they got back to Sacramento they began to flesh them out at drummer Dave Bucker's home studio. Once the music was in good shape, the band recorded demos, then Shaddix added vocals at his home studio. By the time the band headed into the (non-home) studio with producer Howard Benson, the tracks were pretty much finished. But the real reason why Getting Away With Murder was relatively pain-free had more to do with Shaddix's new work ethic.

    "When I was in the studio this time, I didn't party at all," he said, a startling revelation from a former die-hard drinker who now says he's clean and sober. "I put myself and my brain and my soul and my heart into the music. And that was really good for me because it helped me look at life in a different light, and all of a sudden everything didn't seem so bleak."

    The first single from Getting Away With Murder, the soaring, melodic title cut, will hit radio next month. Instead of playing the victim in the song as he has in the past, Shaddix assumes the role of an antagonist involved in acts of deception and deceit. But the song also has double and even triple meanings.

    "I wrote it so you can take it in different ways," he said. "It can be about when you're doing some sh-- behind some people in your life's backs and they don't know about it but it makes you feel like sh--, which I've done. But it can also be about what's going on right now in the political world [in the Middle East], or about these big, huge corporations who are so corrupt."

    Papa Roach tested the track along with four others from the record during a recent string of shows that led up to their appearance at the South by Southwest music conference in Austin, Texas. In addition to warming up the band for the upcoming tour, the jaunt helped cement the group's choice to make "Getting Away With Murder" the album's first single. "Every time we played it the kids were going crazy," Shaddix said. "It just translated live, and the fans latched onto it like f---ing leeches."

    The band is currently on a monthlong club tour that finishes August 6 in Santa Cruz, California. After playing festivals and mid-size venues for much of their last tour, Papa Roach are looking forward to reconnecting with a smaller crowd.

    "We want to really start from the ground floor again, start with nothing and build our way back up to the top," Shaddix said. "A small club is really a great place to see our band because the energy between us and a small crowd in a small room is intense. I think our fans will appreciate being able to hear these new songs in a really intimate setting."

    Papa Roach club dates, according to Geffen Records:
