Hide In Your Shell

Hide in your shell, 'cause the world is out to bleed you for a ride.
What will you gain, making your life a little longer?
Heaven or hell, was the journey cold that gave you eyes of steel?
Shelter behind painting your mind and playing joker.

Too frightening to listen to a stranger,
Too beautiful to put your pride in danger,
You're waiting for someone to understand you,
But you've got demons in your closet (you've got demons in your closet),
And you're screaming out to stop it (and you're screaming out to stop it),
Saying life's begun to cheat you,
Friends are out to beat you,
Grab on to what you can scramble for.

Don't let the tears linger on inside now
'Cause it's sure time you gained control.
If I can help you, if I can help you,
If I can help you, just let me know.
Well, let me show you the nearest signpost
To get your heart back and on the road.
If I can help you, if I can help you,
If I can help you, just let me know.

All through the night as you lie awake and hold yourself so tight.
What do you need, a second hand movie star to tend you?
I as a boy, I believed the saying the cure for pain was love.
How would it be if you could see the world through my eyes?

Too frightening, the fire's becoming colder.
Too beautiful to think you're getting older.
You're looking for someone to give an answer,
But what you see is just illusion (what you see is just illusion),
You're surrounded by confusion (you're surrounded by confusion),
Saying life's begun to cheat you,
Friends are out to beat you,
Grab on to what you can scramble for.

Don't let the tears linger on inside now
'Cause it's sure time you gained control.
If I can help you, if I can help you,
If I can help you, just let me know.
Well, let me show you the nearest signpost
To get your heart back and on the road.
If I can help you, if I can help you,
If I can help you, just let me know.

I wanna know, I wanna know,
I wanna know, I've got to know.
I wanna know you, I wanna know you,
Well, let me know you, I wanna feel you,
Oh, I wanna touch you,
Please let me near you, let me near you.
Can you hear what I'm sayin'?
Well I'm hopin', I'm dreamin', I'm prayin',
And I know what you're thinkin',
See what you're seein'
Never, ever let yourself go,
Hold yourself down, hold yourself down,
Why don't ya hold yourself down?

Why don't you listen, you can trust me (So what you gonna take him to?)
Oh there's a place I know the way to (So what you gonna make him do?)
A place there is no need to (So what's he gonna)
To feel you (So what's he gonna)
To feel that you're not alone (So what's he gonna do?)

Oh won't you hear me? (So what you gonna take him to? )
I know exactly what you're feelin' (So what you gonna make him do?)
'Cause all your troubles are within you (So what's he gonna)
So begin to (So what's he gonna)
To see that I'm just bleeding too (So what's he gonna do?)

Love me love you, love is the way to (So what you gonna take him to?)
Help me help you (So what you gonna make him do?)
Why must we be so cool? (So what's he gonna)
Oh, so cruel? (So what's he gonna)
Oh, we're such damn fools (So what's he gonna do?)

The Angel of Death has been abroad

The Angel of Death has been abroad throughout the land;
you may almost hear the beating of his wings.
There is no one as of old ...
to sprinkle with blood the lintel and the two side-posts of our doors,
that he may spare and pass on.

So Fast, So Numb

You're movin' through rough waters, motel boy,
And swimming in your sleep.
How could I be so blind, mis-sighted,
Not to see there's something wounded deep?

Anyone could scratch your surface now,
It's all amphetamine.
You're blasting yourself into the present,
Learn some vast indignity, say that,

You say that you hate it,
You want to recreate it.
I've been around, I've been your lover,
I let it go at Kill Devil Hill,
You're coming onto something so fast, so numb
That you can't even feel.

You're drinking the raw Drano, baby,
You do-si-do, sad do,
You're you in cartilage, shark-eyed, shock horror, all present tense,
And, boy, your blood is running cold.
Listen, this is now, this is here, this is me,
This is what I wanted you to see.
That was then, was that, that is gone, this is past,
You cast yourself cast, passed by, thrown down fast, you say

You say that you hate it
You want to recreate it
I've played this round, I've played your lover,
I've played it out to the hilt.
You're comin' on with something so fast, so numb
That you can't even feel.

You love it, you hate it,
You want to recreate it.
Now, this is here, this is me,
This is what I wanted you to see.
That was then, was that, that is gone,
That is what I wanted you to feel.

You love it, you hate it,
You spit it out, the bitter pill.
I've been around, I've been your lover,
I let it go at Kill Devil Hill.
You're coming onto something so fast, so numb
That you can't even feel.

I've played this round, I've played your lover,
I've played it out to the hilt.
You're comin' on with something so fast, so numb
That you can't even feel.

You played around, you played me lover,
I let it go at Kill Devil Hill.
You're moving so hard, so fast, so numb
That you can't even feel.

Just Like You

You, you...
You, you...

It's the dark of night and I'm at the end of the line
Alone in my head and waiting for something divine
To answer me
Drowning to silence the internal violence, I pray
To make it through
The stormwinds are growing as my dreams are blowing away
Just like you

You, you...
You, you...

Out at the edge the moonlight reflecting for me
The collapse of the waves echoing internally, as I cry out
If I'm living my life then why does it feel like my heart,
Will break in two?
Failure is calling as my dreams are falling apart
Just like you

You, you...
You, you...

Just like you

You, you...

I feel just like you

I feel just like you

Fortress

Up on a mount, a grey shape to behold
Clad in mist, it arises
Towers and stairs, much too steep and too bold
Try not to spy over its walls, be foretold
Blaze and glory are gone long

Deadly and deep, withering moats scar the grounds
Dare yee swim, yee will perish
Drawbridges shut, ghostly guards make their rounds
Iron gates, like a hoard of wild hounds
Chains in wind sing in anguish

Yonder the gates, ancient ways lead inside
Guiding yee to the sanctum
Armours stand lifeless in rank and in file
Torches are blazing in dusky twilight

And I stride all alone
Through the grey halls of stone
Inside my fortress

And I stride all alone
Through the grey halls of stone
Inside my fortress

Old paintings tell stories of long bygone times
In once vivid colours, in reds and blues
The bridges were open, the gates they were wide
The fort, it stood noble and proud and new

The court, they were drinking and dancing along
Fair Maidens and knights, joined in spirit and song

Now I stride all alone
Through the grey halls of stone
Inside my fortress

And I stride all alone
Through the grey halls of stone
Inside my fortress

Climbing the stairs, up right up to the keep
Savage height, cruel ascension
There I can see them, in darkness so deep
Hundreds of strongholds send warnings and please
Silent, forsaken, I see them and weep
For I know that inside them still men go in grief

And they stride all alone
Through the grey halls of stone
Inside their fortress

And they stride all alone
Through the grey halls of stone
Inside their fortress

How The West Was Won And Where It Got Us

Blood from stone, water from wine,
Born under an ill-placed design,
A stroke of bad luck, wrong place, wrong time,
This flier is out of the lime.

The story is a sad one, told many times,
The story of my life in trying times,
Just add water, stir in lime,
How the west was won and where it got us.

Canary got trapped, the uranium mine,
A stroke of bad luck, now the bird has died,
A marker to mark where my tears run dry,
I cross it, bless it, alkali.

The story is a sad one, told many times,
The story of my life in trying times,
Just add water, stir in lime,
How the west was won and where it got us.

I didn't wear glasses cause I thought it might rain,
Now I can't see anything.
I made a mistake, chalked it up to design,
I cracked through time, space, Godless and dry.
I point my nose to the northern star,
Watch the decline from a hazy distance.

The story is a sad one, told many times,
The story of my life in trying times,
Just add water, stir in lime,
How the west was won and where it got us.

Superstar Pt. 2

I'm drowning in here
The air is not fair
It pierces my lungs
I want to run
Move slow and let them know that I will pray for who I am
But I won't pray for who I'm not

No matter how hard I try
I keeps on getting harder
I wanna reach the sky
But I can't breathe underwater
The game is what I conquer
Competition's what I slaughter
The fame is just an honor
And losing is not an option
You won't see my face poppin' bottles at the bar
It takes blood, sweat, and tears to make it and be a star
How bad do you want it?
Are you willing to starve?
So bad you won't quit
Even if it's killing your heart
You've gotta give it your all
And not a single minute off
Breaks are for fakes
A champion isn't soft
A champion is a warrior
Doesn't know how to stop
He takes care of his people
And fights for a good cause
My back's against the wall
I'm blinded by the fog
My heart will guide me forward
We're climbing to the top

These flashing lights
Keep going strong
Now you will find that I'm a superstar
These flashing lights
Keep going strong
You can't deny that I'm a superstar

So listen up
I came from nothing
Took all my pain and struggles
And I turned into something
Fighting through the storm
Yeah, they never saw me coming
I gotta take this year to face my fear
No more running
You saw me building castles
Outta broken sticks and stones
I had do it so bad
I can feel it in my bones
And after me
There's gonna be a million other clones
But I can't be replaced
I'm sitting on the throne
Dedicated, kept trying
Went through hell to get mine
I don't need a bed time
Busy making headlines
Soaring through the red sky
Brighter than your headlights
Winning in my sight
You better place your bets right
My back's against the wall
I'm blinded by the fog
My heart will guide me forward
We're climbing to the top

These flashing lights
Keep going strong
Now you will find that I'm a superstar
These flashing lights
Keep going strong
You can't deny that I'm a superstar
I'm a superstar

I break before I fall
Then rise above it all
Yeah, nothing's gonna stop us
Yeah, nothing's gonna stop us

I break before I fall
Then rise above it all
Yeah, nothing's gonna stop us
Yeah, nothing's gonna stop us
I'm a superstar

These flashing lights
Keep going strong
Now you will find that I'm a superstar
These flashing lights
Keep going strong
You can't deny that I'm a superstar
I'm a superstar
I'm a superstar

Undertow

I know what I wanted.
I know what I wanted.
I know how I wanted this to be.
Go down to the water.
Drink down of the water.
Walk up off the water, leave it be.

This is not my dream, sister.
It is cold in heaven and I'm not sprouting wings.
I'm drowning me.
I'm drowning me, yeah.

Brother, can you see those birds?
They don't look to heaven,
They don't need religion, they can see.
They go down to the water,
Drink down on the water,
Fly up off the water, leave it be.

This is not my time, sister.
It is cold in heaven and no one's coming after me.
I'm drowning (breathing ourselves) me (breathing ourselves).
I'm drowning (breathing ourselves) me (breathing ourselves), yeah.

You know I am tired,
Cold and bony tired.
Nothing's gonna save me, I can see.
I can't say I'm fearful,
I can't say I'm not afraid.
But I am not resisting, I can see.

I don't need a heaven, I don't need religion.
I am in the place where I should be.
I am breathing water, I am breathing water.
You know a body's got to breathe.

I'm drowning (breathing ourselves) me (breathing ourselves).
I'm drowning (breathing ourselves) me (breathing ourselves).
I'm drowning (breathing ourselves) me (breathing ourselves).

In A Hour Darkly

In einer dunklen Stunde, ach, alle Stunden sind dunkel hier. Aus einem Becher von zartestem Flieder trinken wir Tee allein mit mir.

My name is BROKEN CHALICE and leaden I am filled all the way up to the brim. Filled with sadness, and with misery, and the most terrible of things.

Very soon I might overflow I fear, as I am filled with so much anger and far too many tears.

These words come from the depth of my discontent, to testify to you of the displeasure that I harbour against the world; —and therefore myself. Hush, here lies truth, sweet child, in all its obvious simplicity.

A long time ago, it seems, the boy has come to an agreement
with himself, to remain in this wretched life for as long as it hasn't reached the point of becoming totally unbearable.
Yes, he was prepared to tolerate the bleakness of all things
of darkness, even nothingness itself, all of this perhaps only to prove that life really isn't worth an effort, that an early VOLUNTARY DEATH is absolutely ALWAYS justified.

Yes, I DO confess. I have a secret wish: I often dream of dying, to dissolve completely, to simply vanish, so that nothing, not a single grain would ever remain of me. No spark, no energy, no further existence for me, but most of all: NO REBIRTH!

Alas, if I had this chance, this possibility, how free from worries could I be, if I only had this ONE guarantee that there would be NO MORE tomorrows lying in wait for me.

Hula Hula

Aaaa, hula hula, aaaa, hula hula
Sä tanssit
Rantavedes silmät kii, ooh
Taivas on oranssi
Eikä vielä näy tähtii, ooh
Vesipisarat luistaa sun iholla

Aaaa, hula hula, aaaa hula hula

Let You Down

I feel a little lonely
When you are not beside me
Tell me are you coming back?

I know that you don't trust me
But you don't really know me
Girl I feel I'm going mad

And if you don't know, don't know it by now
You're the one I promise baby
No no no won't let you down

And if you don't know, don't know it by now
You're the one I promise baby
No no no won't let you down

I feel a little dizzy
Drinking shots like crazy
Trying to forget you girl

It's 4 AM already
I'm thinking about you baby
I can't take it anymore

And if you don't know, don't know it by now
You're the one I promise baby
No no no won't let you down

And if you don't know, don't know it by now
You're the one I promise baby
No no no won't let you down

No no, won't let you down
No no, won't let you down

Better

You know it’s been a while
Since I’ve seen the sun
I guess you can tell
But, I’m getting better

I forgot what words to say
Or how to behave
I was overwhelmed
But I’m getting better

I was so scared of trying
I hid so long I forgot who I was
I was so scared of dying
Until I realized I already was

Did you miss me?
Did you miss me?
Did you miss me while I was lost?

I know they still
Laugh about my pills
“What a funny girl”
I wish they could tell
That I’m getting better

And when my eyes weren’t drying
I was so scared that this is who I was
And I was so scared of dying
Until I realized I already was

Did you miss me? x7
Did you miss me while I was lost?

Nocturnal Rainbows

[Intro]
You think you're original? You ain't original
You were programmed to be you
You're a slave, and you don't even know it
The shit you think of ain't even your thoughts
Let's step out the box for a minute!

[Verse 1]
How do we know if God exists?
How do we know what's positive?
Are you the definition of an angel or the opposite?
If you lost your wallet and I found it
I would not commit to stealin' it
But if the tables turned, then you would pocket it
See, I been me for so long, but I still don't know who Hopsin is
How come I'm the one my teachers
Used to have a problem with?
I show my music to different labels, they ain't too fond of it
But in the underground I seem to get so many compliments
Say my name and it's like people get afraid and shook
But if you take a look
You'll see I'm nothin' like an angry crook
I'm learnin' hands-on, you busy with your face in books
I'm here to benefit the world
So Heaven's where we're safely put
I'm not a devil, not speakin' in tongues
I just wanna touch your heart, I try to reach it in songs
I'm from where a child's future's on the streets with the bums
Because it's hard to become
Somethin' so unique where I'm from

[Hook]
When the Sun's down
Nocturnal rainbows soar in the air so high
It may seem so that I can't see
But the darkness provides the light for me
I don't wanna be lonely
And the Moon is my only homie
If there's a higher power, then show me
Instead of nocturnal rainbows

[Verse 2]
Obama's president, so? What's he represent?
Just because the nigga's half black
Don't mean he's Heaven-sent
You're clueless to evidence and all the minds he's messin' with
His charm and smile hasn't got my ass up out this debt for shit
Frontin' like he's truly Jesus, and all you fools believe it
The change he's makin' isn't good
That's just how you conceived it
It's like we're all broker than ever, it's due to reasons
Dealin' with self-beneficial plans and the movement he's with
Illuminati, or whatever the fuck they go by
They're the reason weird shit happens and we don't know why
Why did Michael Jackson start his tour, then have to go die?
How did rap music go from really good to so dry?
Real artists get shelved and wack ones get famous
To leave masses brainless
A smart mind is dangerous—in their eyes
There probably ain't no real shit in your playlist
You're just a product of what the government has created

[Hook]
When the Sun's down
Nocturnal rainbows soar in the air so high
It may seem so that I can't see
But the darkness provides the light for me
I don't wanna be lonely
And the Moon is my only homie
If there's a higher power then show me
Instead of nocturnal rainbows

[Verse 3]
We're all smart, and we know what's bad and good for us
But yet when you got offered some marijuana, you took a puff
Your brain's a fuckin' powerhouse
But what, that wasn't good enough?
It's people like you who talk that shoulda-coulda-woulda stuff
You probably threw your life away
‘Cause you would rather get high
With no license or car, so you bum rides to get by
Saying, 'I should've did this'
Or 'I shouldn't have hung with this guy'
'I'm broke as fuck, my rent's high. Ah, I should've realized.'
I ain't being cruel with these situations that I address
I more than likely could be someone you admire, yes
But it's because the blood, sweat and all the time that I invest
We play the same game
Difference is, you never try your best
You don't have a skill, you set yourself up for a higher mess
I work around the clock, you slack off for lots of time to rest
Keep bullshittin' till your life is gone
‘Cause living's naturally hell
You have to work to put a smile on

[Hook]
When the Sun's down
Nocturnal rainbows soar in the air so high
It may seem so that I can't see
But the darkness provides the light for me
I don't wanna be lonely
And the Moon is my only homie
If there's a higher power then show me
Instead of nocturnal rainbows

A Journey To A Star

A journey to a star
A journey to a star

A journey to a star
A journey to a star
A journey to a star

A journey to a star
A journey, a journey

Devils And Angels

[Verse 1]
I broke my piggy bank and haven't put it back together
Back in heaven blastin' rounds like I'm a MAC-11
Livin' in my rainy city it was all wrong
Used to be the big fish in a small pond
Now I'm swimming with the sharks but I'm a Jap' piranha
Plus I'm moving Fast & Furious like Brian O'Conner
Rest in peace, a restless beast
Call me Mighty Mouse, pocket's full of extra cheese, yup
Still a mental savage that is ravenous, indeed
Exerting psycho babble from a labyrinth in me
Angels flying up above, demons down beneath
When I'm breathing you can hear the evil seeping through my teeth
Close friends worth more than cash and havin' wealth
Self destructive beings are a hazard to themself
Lion roars, stronger than an iron door
Sun has killed the rain, love has killed the pain that I endure

[Hook]
Half these rappers are the liars like Pinocchio
10% are dope, other 90 less than okey-doke
You don't wanna rope-a-dope with Mad, you get the broken nose
Small but when I'm rappin' I am taller than the Poconos
My soul is mischievous like A-Plus and Opio
A toy collector, plus my clothes, they come from Tokyo
I'm not sayin' I got the dopest flow
But kids are studyin' my methods like a vocal coach

[Verse 2]
My brain's a battlefield for devils and angels
Walkin' contradiction like machetes and rainbows
Burden on my shoulders that is heavy and painful
Shane's raw, tearin' shit like Eminem's chainsaw
Battle Mad and you could be in real danger
Excruciating training like a Navy SEAL ranger
Run for cover, bounty hunter like I'm Bobafett
Wild west bounty hunter like I'm Jonah Hex
Ay, bitch, I could talk to the dead
You connect with me cause I can read the thoughts in your head
Yeah, mentally projecting till I'm causing metamorph(os)is
Almost lost my head like the fucking headless horsemen
Holdin' a jack-o-lantern, acrobatic verbiage
Dirtiest of wordsmiths, bar game is murderous
Don't talk about it much but came up with true killers
Still here cause I'm unbreakable like Bruce Willis

[Hook]
Half these rappers out are liars like Pinocchio
10% are dope, other 90 less than okey-doke
You don't wanna rope-a-dope with Mad, you get the broken nose
Small but when I'm rappin' I am taller than the Poconos
My soul is mischievous like A-Plus and Opio
A toy collector plus my clothes, they come from Tokyo
I'm not sayin' I got the dopest flow
But kids just studyin' my methods like a vocal coach

Moth To A Flame

It's a fight to the end
And death to the brave
I will defend
What's left to be saved

You fade away
You take the bait
You won't survive
There's no escape

You're caught in the flame
(It's always the same thing)
No-one to blame
(You'll just have to hate me)
And nothing will change
(It's always the same thing)
A moth to the flame
(And no-one is listening)

There's nowhere to hide
You can't erase
The blood on your hands
The guilt on your face

You fade away
You take the bait
You won't survive
There's no escape

You're caught in the flame
(It's always the same thing)
No-one to blame
(You'll just have to hate me)
And nothing will change
(It's always the same thing)
A moth to the flame
(And no-one is listening)

You're caught in the flame
And everything's fading

Drawn to the light
The Siren is too much to resist
She takes the life and the breath
From all that exists
You refuse to ever learn
So you will burn

You're caught in the flame
(It's always the same thing)
No-one to blame
(You'll just have to hate me)
And nothing will change
(It's always the same thing)
(Always the same thing)

A moth to the flame
A moth to the flame
And no-one is listening

One Day At A Time

I can't deal with the future
So stuck in the past
I can't deal with the present
Never seems to last
No, I can't find the patience
To weather the storm
I can't find the answer
I'm not even warm

One day at a time
One hell of a ride
All I know I'm still alive
So I'll take it one day at a time

Nothing comes easy
When you're looking too hard
I find so much is missing
It's tearing me apart
Take away all the sadness
Cover the black
Take a walk with the madness
Never come back

One day at a time
One hell of a ride
All I know I'm still alive
So I'll take it one day at a time

If I think too far down the road
I won't make it through the night
Deep down inside, I know
At the end there's a light
So I'll just keep holding on

One day at a time
It's one hell of a climb
All I know, it hasn't killed me yet
One day at a time
One hell of a ride
All I know, I'm still alive
So I'll take it one day at time

One day at a time

Some Things Never Change

Dig your teeth into my neck, it’s alright
I taught you everything that you know
Be like a river opening up, it’s your life
With the seeds that you sow
Crawl your way back to me
We’re thicker than thieves
We're family

Some things never change
I’ll just look the other way
Let you sort it out yourself
I can always tell when
You’re upside down or upside in
Thinking about what might have been
There’s nothing left to say
We all stay the same
Some things never change

Pray to the Gods in the heavens for your light
Time will destroy everything you know
Shed every ounce of your skin, it’s alright
You are never alone
Break the promise you made
I've done the same
We'll do it again

Some things never change
I’ll just look the other way
Let you sort it out yourself
I can always tell when
You’re upside down or upside in
Thinking about what might have been
Can't you turn the page?
Some things never change

I walk with you
Just like a shadow
Just like a shadow
I fight for you
I will fight your battle
Will fight your battle

Some things never change
I’ll just look the other way
Let you sort it out yourself
I can always tell when
You’re upside down or upside in
Thinking about what might have been
There’s nothing left to say
We all stay the same
Some things never change

Some things never change
Some things never change
Some things, some things never change

Dead Man Walking

What the hell have I become?
An empty shell completely numb
Every day just going through the motion
When I'm alone I think a lot
Of all the things that I forgot
All my regrets have left me lost and broken

I'm so tired of feeling like a dead man walking
Hear the razor calling
I don't want to live
I don't want to die
Dead man walking
I can taste the poison
I don't want to live
I don't want to die
Tell me that there's more to this life
Dead man walking

Why the hell am I still here?
It feels like I could disappear
And if I did would anybody notice?
No there's nothing running through my veins
All too well I know the shame
Is there still a chance?
Is there hope for the hopeless?

I'm so tired of feeling like a dead man walking
Hear the razor calling
I don't want to live
I don't want to die
Dead man walking
I can taste the poison
I don't want to live
I don't want to die
Tell me that there's more to this life
More to this life!

Time is ticking as the eyes of my accusers
Burn holes in my skin
This rusty crown center stage
In the old museum of sin
I'm off to meet the maker
But there's a fire in the well
Any last words?
I'll see you all in hell!

Dead man walking
Dead man walking
I don't want to live
I don't want to die
Dead man walking
Hear the razor calling
I can taste the poison
Tell me that there's more to this life
More to this life!

Eat You Alive

Days pass by in this lonely abyss
Falling sky and the worlds closing in
Dance with demons, so I'm not alone
I won't break 'cause revenge is a place I call home

Soon you will know
Not to throw stones
To the glass house

Locked in a cage, feeling the rage
I'm alone inside (alone inside)
Counting the days I will escape
I will eat you alive (eat you alive)
Like a thief, I'll steal through the night
Locked in a cage, feeling the rage
Burning up inside
With my last breath of life
I will eat you alive

Silently I have learned to embrace
Bitter memories I know like the taste
Swirling up like a phoenix inside
From the ashes, I'll find you
There's nowhere to hide

Biding my time
You can't confine
What's in my mind

Locked in a cage, feeling the rage
I'm alone inside (alone inside)
Counting the days I will escape
I will eat you alive (eat you alive)
Like a thief, I'll steal through the night
Locked in a cage, feeling the rage
Burning up inside
With my last breath of life
I will eat you alive

Digging a hole
Bleeding in the dirt
Lighting a flame
It's gonna hurt
Like a stone in the ground
There's a devil within
I'm coming for you
I'll never give in

Locked in a cage, feeling the rage
I'm alone inside (alone inside)
Counting the days I will escape
I will eat you alive (eat you alive)
Like a thief, I'll steal through the night
Locked in a cage, feeling the rage
Burning up inside
With my last breath of life
I will eat you alive

Best Won't Do

I've been down to the bottom
It's a long way to the top
So lonely at the middle
And painful when you drop

Don't need no motivation
Don't want your sympathy
All you are is critical
Of what I'm meant to be
Meant to be

Why does everything have to be so difficult?
You do your best just to wind up typical
It don't matter what you choose
You lose, you lose, you lose!
Your best won't do
Your best won't do

The words that you have spoken
Mean nothing to me now
The promises you've broken
Won't drag me to the ground
It happened for a reason
Life's to short to waste
Losers can't be winners
If all they do is wait
I can't wait, yeah

Why does everything have to be so difficult?
You do your best just to wind up typical
It don't matter what you choose
You lose, you lose, you lose!
Your best won't do

Time of the horizon
Time of the horizon
Dark has been born a day
A day that will never come
A day that will never come

Why does everything have to be so difficult?
You do your best just to wind up typical
It don't matter what you choose
You lose, you lose, you lose!
Your best won't do
Your best won't do
Your best won't do
Your best won't do
You lose, you lose, you lose!
Your best won't do
Your best won't do

  • 1. My guess. Nursey? Nancy?
  • 2. My take on what she babbles

Breathe Again

When I hesitate I know
It's just too late to bring you back
But still I need you
I can't communicate the burden of this weight
My world is black until I see you

I don't know how
I don't know when
But I can finally breathe again
Life's too short, the day's too long
In the end I knew it all along
I knew it all along

Two sides of a knife, story of my life
The pain is sharp and comfort bleeds through
I can't seem to clear my head
I wish that I was dead
Falling apart 'cause I still need you

I don't know how
I don't know when
But I can finally breathe again
Life's too short, the day's too long
In the end I knew it all along

Like a newborn child
Like a raven in the wind
I can finally breathe again
I can finally breathe again

When I hesitate I know
It's just too late to bring you back
But still I need you

I don't know how
I don't know when
But I can finally breathe again
Life's too short, the day's too long
In the end I knew it all along

Like a newborn child
Like a raven in the wind
I can finally breathe again

I don't know how
I don't know when
But I can finally breathe again
Life's too short, the day's too long
In the end I knew it all along
Like a newborn child
Like a raven in the wind
I can finally breathe again, yeah
I can finally breathe again, yeah
I can finally breathe again

I don't know how
I don't know when
But I can finally breathe again
Life's too short, the day's too long
In the end I knew it all along
I can finally breathe again
I knew it all along
I can finally breathe again

Straight Across My Mind

The first time's easy, I could walk away
But something in me makes me stay
The second I leave you I'm without
Third time lucky, without a doubt
This disease is growing in me
From a seed into a twisted tree

It's like an obsession, an addiction
You keep on running straight across
Straight across my mind
I'll never look away
It's like the sun has opened up my eyes
You're straight across my mind (my mind)
Straight across my mind (my mind)

Forced expression fails to meet
Expectations of the weak
Cinco de Mayo comes again
Six years dying to understand
This disease that's growing in me
From a seed into a twisted tree

It's like an obsession, an addiction
You keep on running straight across
Straight across my mind
I'll never look away
It's like the sun has opened up my eyes
You're straight across my mind

This disease is growing in me
From a seed into a twisted tree

It's like an obsession, an addiction
You keep on running straight across
Straight across my mind
I'll never look away
It's like the sun has opened up my eyes
(It's like the sun has) opened up my eyes
You're straight across my mind (my mind)
Straight across my mind (my mind)
You're straight across my mind (my mind)
Straight across my mind (my mind)
Straight across my mind

Build A Wall

Build a wall from me
Your words are mortar
And limestone
One wall's okay
You're still easy to find

Put up a second wall
Corner yourself and hide
I can come around
Meet you on the other side

Tell me how
How does it finally feel to be free?
Tell me how
With those beautiful eyes you can't see

Put up a third wall
And watch the ocean roll in
I'm a note in a bottle
The tide will wash me in

Put up a final wall
Lock me out of your life
I'm coming over top
I will scale, I will climb
I will climb

Tell me how
How does it finally feel to be free?
Tell me how
With those beautiful eyes you can't see

I'm an ocean of will in a desert of truth
Not one wall stands in front of me
With both arms I reach out, out to you

But you seal the top with stone
Lock me out for good
All you’ve really done
Is just close yourself in
You are buried alive

Tell me how
How does it finally feel to be free?
Tell me how
With those beautiful eyes you can't see

Tell me how
Tell me how
Tell me how
With those beautiful eyes you can't see

You can't see
I can't see
I can't see

Alone

It's got me on my head again
Close can be so misleading
It's hard enough to get to know yourself

Into words I cough my feelings
I don’t know the half of it but
This I finally figured out

I used to think that being alone
Meant being by myself
Now I know to truly be alone
Means being without you

Ignorance eats for free
More questions than there's reason
Time smiles, forever laughing by
End is prey for the beginning
Lost track, forgot who's losing
A mouth opens up inside

I used to think that being alone
Meant being by myself
Now I know to truly be alone
Means being without you

It's got me on my head again
Close can be so misleading
It's hard enough to get to know yourself

I used to think that being alone
Meant being by myself
Now I know to truly be alone
Means being without you

I used to think that being alone
Meant being by myself
But now I know to truly be alone
Means being without you

Car Crash

I didn't say 'I love you'
When I had the chance
And now I lie here bleeding
In an awful mess

I know it's not the right time
To become a religious man
But I've got that nasty feeling
It's my only chance

There is no pain, no sign of life
I took in vain my only life
I can't explain where the time went
Now I'm breathing my final breath

I fell awake while sleeping
Forgot to remember how
I gave my best at taking
Had everything but more

The pavement's getting cold now
You're the best thing in my life
I really should have told you
But I didn't have the time

There is no pain, no sign of life
I took in vain my only life
I can't explain where the time went
Now I'm breathing my final breath

There is no pain, no sign of life
I took in vain my only life
I can't explain where the time went
Now I'm breathing my final breath

Now I'm breathing, my final...
There goes... my last breath
There goes... my last breath
There goes... my last breath
There goes... my last breath
There goes... my last breath
There goes...

Crime

I give what I...

I give what I need to give
I take what I need to take
I live how I see fit
I choose to follow through

My only crime is loving you
My only crime is loving you

I lie in my own contempt
Subdued by relentlessness
I chose to fight the thought
But I caved
I gave my freedom
Resigned it all to you

My only crime is loving you
My only crime is loving you

One life
Never own it
Enslaved like a servant
Once the bottom breaks
You never float the same
One shake to a tremble
Con-man from within you
I can lie to myself
But I can’t lie to you

My only crime is loving you
My only crime is loving you
My only crime is loving you
My only crime is loving you

Like a servant

Do What You Can

I guess I gave my best
For the both of us tonight
They're not just words to me
So listen when I speak
I'll see this through

Do what you can
Be what you need
Be what you like

Do what you can
Be what you need
Be what you like

We're not so far away

Do what you can
Be what you need
Be what you like

It's your turn to rise
Occasion will call you out tonight
You're not just somebody
I met along the way
I'll keep coming through for you

Do what you can
Be what you need
Be what you like

Do what you can
Be what you need
Be what you like

We're not so far away

Do what you can
Be what you need
Be what you like

You know love isn't justice
Don't get confused
It's not always convenient
You just have to choose
Do you believe?

We're not so far away
We're not so far away

Do what you can
Be what you need
Be what you like

Do what you can
Be what you need
Be what you like

We're not so far away

Do what you can
Be what you need
Be what you like
