Papa Roach Has Killer Debut Week On Charts

Papa Roach is back on familiar ground: the upper reaches of the Billboard album charts, thanks to the big debut of "Getting Away With Murder," the band's new Geffen release. The CD, which premiered at #17 on The Billboard 200 chart, sold in excess of 50,000 copies in its first week.

The CD's release comes on the heels of the hit title track, which was #1 most added at Active Rock radio and #2 at Alternative radio. The achievement is all the more impressive is that the track was already in the Top-20 at Active Rock before the official radio add date.

I’m dreaming about tomorrow
I’m thinking of yesterday
I consume myself in sorrow
This moment in time
Is what I betray
I am searching for the answers

Here today gone today
Hurry up and wait
I'm never there for you or me
Can't you read the story of our lives
Death to me and life for you
Something isn't right
And I need some space to
Clear my head to think about
My life
