1. Brother

2. Got Me Wrong

3. Right Turn

4. I Am Inside

5. Love Song

 

 

 


1. Brother

 


Frozen in the place I hide

Not afraid to paint my sky

With some who say I've lost my mind

Brother, try and hope to find...

 

You, were always so far away

I know that pain

So don't you run away like you used to do

 

Roses in a vase of white

Bloodies by the thorns

Beside the leaves that fall because my hand is

Pulling them hard as I can

 

You, were always so far away

I know that pain

And I won't run away like I used to do

 

Pictures in a box at home

Yellowing and green with mold

So I can barely see your face

Wonder how that color taste

 

You, were always so far away

I know the way

So don't you run away like you used to do

Like you used to do

 

 


2. Got Me Wrong

 


Yeh it goes away

All of this and more of nothing in my life

No colored clay

Individuality not safe

 

As of now I bet you've got me wrong

So unsure you run from something strong

 

I can't let go

Threadbare tapestry unwinding slow

Feel a tortured brain

Show your belly like you want me too

 

As of now I bet you've got me wrong

So unsure we reach for something strong

 

I haven't felt like this in so long

Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love

That don't last forever

Something got to turn out right

 

You sugar taste

Sweetness doesn't often touch my face

Stay if you please

You may not be here when I leave

 

As of now I bet you've got me wrong

So unsure we reach for something strong

 

I haven't felt like this in so long

Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love

Strong, I haven't felt like this in so long

Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love

That don't last forever

Something got to turn out right

 

 


3. Right Turn

 


Inside, always tryin' to get back inside

But it's so hard to penetrate pig-thick skin

 

I'm 'bout as low as I can get

I'd leave but I can't forget

Still I wonder why

 

It ain't right

It ain't right

It ain't right

It ain't right

 

As 'bout as low as she can get

She'd leave me but she won't forget

And she wonders why

 

She ain't right

She ain't right

It ain't right

She ain't right

 

Now we're as low as we can get

Can't leave and can't forget

 

We ain't right

We ain't right

We ain't right

We ain't right...

 

It's hard to believe some body tricked you

When you can see you were only high

It's all up to you so you gamble

Flat on your face and into the fire...

 

 


4. I Am Inside

 


Loneliness, it shadows me

Quicker than darkness

Crawls to the surface of my skin

Visibly surrounded by it

 

Black is all I feel, so this is how it feels to be free

 

Surrounded by empty souls

Artificial courage used

And because so once was mine

I walk this maze alone

 

Black is all I feel, so this is how it feels to be free

 

The man's beside himself

Man's below himself

Man's behind himself

Am I inside my self

 

Chaos and hate shadow me

Pain it fills me up

Only one thing makes me feel

Missing better half of me

 

Black is all I feel, so this is how it feels to be free

 

Man's beside himself

Man's below himself

Man's behind himself

Am I inside my self

 

 


5. Love Song

 


Love song take one

 

I love you, I'm not coming back bitch

I think I should say something

I can't see, I can't feel anything, I can't I can't

 

Wash my face, cut out my teeth and tell me to grin

MY GUMS ARE BLEEDING! MY GUMS ARE BLEEDING!

 

I hate you, I hate you

Get a fucking haircut!

Go fuck yourself

Rae Dong Chung, Rae Dong Chung, Rae Dong Chung, Rae Dong Chung, Rae Dong Chung,

 

Get something, get, get them, get them

Get the fuckin' midget

Get the midget, get the midget

Get the fuckin midget

Kiss the fuckin' midget

"Where the deer and antelope play..."

Kiss the midget, kiss the midget, kiss the midget, kiss the midget,

 

"That was perfect, you guys, that was great!"

1. Rotten Apple

 


Hey ah na na

Innocence is over

Hey ah na na

Over

 

Hey ah na na

Ignorance is spoken

Hey ah na na

Spoken

 

Hey ah na na

Confidence is broken

Hey ah na na

Broken

 

Hey ah na na

Sustenance is stolen

Hey ah na na

Stolen

 

Hey ah na na

Arrogance is potent

Hey ah na na

Potent

 

What I see is unreal

I've written my own part

Eat of the apple, so young

I'm crawling back to start

 

Hey ah na na

I repent tomorrow

Hey ah na na

Tomorrow

 

Hey ah na na

Is suspended my sorrow

Hey ah na na

Sorrow, yeah

 

What I see is unreal

I've written my own part

Eat of the apple, so young

I'm crawling back to start

 

Hey ah na na

A romance is fallen

Hey ah na na

Fallen

 

Hey ah na na

Recommend you borrow

Hey ah na na

Borrow

 

What I see is unreal

I've written my own part

Eat of the apple, so young

I'm crawling back to start

 

Hey ah na na

Hey ah na na

Hey ah na na

Hey ah na na

 

 


2. Nutshell

 


We chase misprinted lies

We face the path of time

And yet I fight, and yet I fight

This battle all alone

No one to cry to

No place to call home

 

My gift of self is raped

My privacy is raked

And yet I find, yet I find

Repeating in my head

If I can't be my own

I'd feel better dead

 

 


3. I Stay Away

 


Yeah, I want to travel south this year

Aaah, woah, woah won't prevent safe passage here

 

Why you act crazy

Not an act maybe

So close a lady

Shifty eyes shade

 

Yeah, hey Yeah, tears that soak a callous heart

 

Why you act frightened

I am enlightened

Your weakness builds me

So someday you'll see

 

I stay away

 

Why you act crazy

Not an act maybe

So close a lady

Shifty eyes shade

 

I stay away

I stay away

I stay away

I stay away

 

 


4. No Excuses

 


It's alright

There comes a time

Got no patience to search for peace of mind

Layin' low

Wanna take it slow

No more hiding or disguising truths I've sold

 

Everyday it's something hits me all so cold

You find me sittin' by myself no excuses, then I know

 

It's okay

Had a bad day

Hands are bruised from breaking rocks all day

Drained and blue

I bleed for you

You think it's funny, well you're drowning in it too

 

Everyday it's something hits me all so cold

You find me sittin' by myself no excuses, then I know

 

Yeah, it's fine

Walk down the line

Leave our rain, a cold Trade for warm sunshine

You my friend

I will defend

And if we change, well I love you anyway

 

Everyday it's something hits me all so cold

Find me sittin' by myself no excuses, then I know

 

 


5. Don't Follow

 


Hey, I ain't never coming home

Hey, I'll just wander my own road

Hey, I can't meet you here tomorrow

Say goodbye don't follow

Misery so hollow

 

Hey you, you're livin' life full throttle

Hey you, pass me down that bottle, yeah

Hey you, you can't shake me round now

I get so lost and don't know how

And it hurts to care, I'm going down

 

Forgot my woman, lost my friends

Things I'd done and where I've been

Sleep in sweat the mirrors cold

See my face it's growin' old

Scared to death no reason why

Do whatever to get me by

Think about the things I said

Read the page it's cold and dead

 

Take me home

Yeah, take me home

Take me home

Take me home, yeah

Take me home

 

Say goodbye don't follow

 

 


6. Swing On This

 


Mother said come home

Father said come home

Sisters said come home

So my friends said come home

 

I said

Let me be, I'm alright

Can't you see, I'm just fine

Little skinny, okay

I'm asleep anyway

 

Then I heard a voice

Said "Son you have a choice"

I then slapped my face

 

Let me be, I'm okay

I'm awake anyway

It's too bright over here

I can shift, cannot steer

So I drive them away

For a while, then I stay

Little skinny, okay

I'm asleep anyway

 

Now I have to go home

Do as, when in Rome

 

Let me be, I'm alright

Can't you see I'm just fine

Little skinny, okay

I'm asleep anyway

Let me be, I'm okay

I'm awake anyway

1. We Die Young

 

Scary's on the wall

Scary's on he's way

 

Watch where you spit

I'd advise you wait until it's over

Then you got hit

And you shoulda known better

 

And we die young

Faster we run

 

Down, down, down you're rollin'

Watch the blood float in the muddy sewer

Take another hit

And bury your brother

 

And we die young

Faster we run

 

Scary's on the wall

Scary's on he's way

 

Another alley trip

Bullet seek the place to bend you over

Then you got hit

And you shoulda known better

 

Faster we run

And we die young

 

 


2. Man In The Box

 


I'm the man in the box

Buried in my shit

Won't you come and save me, save me

 

Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut?

Jesus Christ, deny your maker

He who tries, will be wasted

Feed my eyes now you've sewn them shut

 

I'm the dog who gets beat

Shove my nose in shit

Won't you come and save me, save me

 

Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut?

Jesus Christ, deny your maker

He who tries, will be wasted

Feed my eyes now you've sewn them shut

 

Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut?

Jesus Christ, deny your maker

He who tries, will be wasted

Feed my eyes now you've sewn them shut

 

 


3. Sea Of Sorrow

 


Mind of destructive taste

I choose... to stroll amongst the waste that was your heart

Lost in the dark

Call off the chase

 

Walls of thought, strong and high

As my castle crumbles with time... I think of you

Oh, yes I do

Such a crime

 

You opened fire... and your mark was true

You opened fire... aim my smilin' skull at you

You opened fire...

 

I live tomorrow

You I'll not follow

As you wallow

In a sea of sorrow

 

Lines cut across my face

Why you laugh at my disgrace, I'll never know

How far to go

To reach that place

 

You opened fire... and your mark was true

You opened fire... aim my smilin' skull at you

You opened fire...

 

I live tomorrow

You I'll not follow

As you wallow

In a sea of sorrow

 

You opened fire... and your mark was true

You opened fire... aim my smilin' skull at you

You opened fire...

 

I live tomorrow

You I'll not follow

As you wallow

In a sea of sorrow...

 

 


4. Bleed The Freak

 


My cup runnet over

Like blood from a stone

 

These stand for me

Name your god and bleed the freak

I like to see

How you all would bleed for me

 

When the pig runs slower

Let the arrow fly

When the sin lies bolder

I'll pluck out thine eye

 

These stand for me

Name your god and bleed the freak

I like to see

How you all would bleed for me

 

If you scorn my lover

Satan got your thigh

If you steal in hunger

I will kick you when you try

 

These stand for me

Name your god and bleed the freak

I like to see

How you all would bleed for me

 

Bleed for me, bleed for me

 

These stand for me

Name your god and bleed the freak

I like to see

How you all would bleed for me

 

These stand for me

Name your god and bleed the freak

I like to see

How you all would bleed for me

 

 


5. I Can't Remember

 


Turn around you say

'Scuse the 'tude but I haven't eaten today

And my eyes are turning grey

What's your name?

 

I can't remember

I can't remember

 

Bring me down you try

Feel the pain and keep it all in till you die

Without eyes you cannot cry

Who's to blame?

 

I can't remember

I can't...

 

Remember identity, the visions in my mind from screamin' at me

And mama, mama, ooh... my angry brains of infancy

 

Knocked down but I have enough hate to breathe

Down your throat and steal your energy

You took everyting but my will to be

Now the loss of your god won't make me bleed

 

I am alive

 

 


6. Love, Hate, Love

 


I tried to love you I thought I could

I tried to own you I thought I would

I want to peel the skin from your face

Before the real you lays to waste

 

You told me I'm the only one

Sweet little angel you should have run

Lying, crying, dying to leave

Innocence creates my hell

 

Cheating myself still you know more

It would be so easy with a whore

Try to understand me little girl

My twisted passion to be your world

 

Lost inside my sick head

I live for you but I'm not alive

Take my hand before I kill

I still love you but, I still burn

 

Love, hate, love...

 

 


7. It Ain't Like That

 


There I was, laid out on a table

Screamin' sweat and bare feet to the floor

In my life, I'd not soften

Things that cut, and burn so often

But I sit, think of somethin'

Scared to face, the dyin' nothin'

 

See the cycle I've waited for

It ain't like that anymore

 

Where I go is when I feel I'm able

How I fight is why I'm feelin' sore

In my mind, not forgotten

Feel as though, a tooth were rotten

Behind the smile, a tongue that's slippin'

Buzzards cry, when flesh is rippin'

 

See the cycle I've waited for

It ain't like that anymore

 

Here I sit writing on the paper

Trying to make the words you can't ignore

In my eyes, what I'm lacking

Score at face, a ten for slacking

Sign the deal, set in motion

Smaller fish, so huge the ocean

 

See the cycle I've waited for

It ain't like that anymore

See the cycle I've waited for

It ain't like that anymore

 

 


8. Sunshine

 


Am I too contagious

Full of sick desire

Am I that I promise

Burning corpsed pyre

 

Then some dude came down to touch the Mother

Mother touched, and dude ain't here no more

 

Am I your reflection

Melting mirror smile

Am I worth the value

Do my love defile

 

Then some dude came down to touch the Mother

Mother touched and dude ain't here no more

Ain't no day the sun don't crack

Try brand some name across my back so you care?

Find someone to tell you

 

Sunshine... sweet love my labor

Don't mind... I don't care no more

 

Can you face the queston?

Is my soul entire?

 

Sunshine... sweet love my labor

Don't mind... I don't care no more

Sunshine... sweet love my labor

Don't mind... I don't care no more

 

 


9. Put You Down

 


Heatbreaker, feelin' alright

Body over... mind

It's slower, reduction is addictive too

Personality overview

 

I can see what the cost will be

You know I don't need you

I just can't put you down

I can see what it all means to me

Honey I don't need you

I just can't put you down

Can't put you down

 

Hard drinker... feelin' all right

Your maker... mine

It's slower... reduction is addictive too

Personality overview

 

I can see what the cost will be

You know I don't need you

I just can't put you down

I can see what it all means to me

Honey I don't need you

I just can't put you down

 

 

Put you down, down, down, gonna put you down, down

Put you down, down, down, gonna put you down, down

Put you down, down, down, gonna put you down, down

Put you down, down, down, gonna put you down, down

 

Everything you buy is for the jingle

Every time you lie it's all  the same

And if you need a rhyme to kill the singer

Shoot me dead before I may be through

 

 


10. Confusion

 


There's no time to give at all

I cause you grief and blow my hatred

Further in your mind

You reach, I run, you fall

On skinned knees you crawl

 

I want to set you free

Recognize my disease

 

Love, sex, pain, confusion, suffering

You're there crying, I feel not a thing

Drilling my way deeper in your head

Sinking, draining, drowning, bleeding, dead

 

So you sit and think of love

I wait, hate all the more, I fall

On skinned knees I crawl

 

I want to set you free

Recognize my disease

 

Love, sex, pain, confusion, suffering

You're there crying, I feel not a thing

Drilling my way deeper in your head

Sinking, draining, drowning, bleeding, dead

 

Now there's time to give it all

I put my fears behind again

On skinned knees we'll crawl

 

I want to set you free

Recognize my disease

 

Love, sex, pain, confusion, suffering

You're there crying, I feel not a thing

Drilling my way deeper in your head

Sinking, draining, drowning, bleeding, dead

Love, sex, pain, confusion, suffering

 

 


11. I Know Somethin (bout you)

 


Why can't I take it all OK?

I like to dig and fuck around with your day

I'm gonna tell your mama

Yeh I'm gonna blackball your name

Ain't now way you'll go without me

Every chance I'll make you pay

 

On your face, in my space, I tell you I know

Somethin' 'bout you, I know somethin' 'bout you

In my space, on your face, I tell you I know somethin'

'Bout you, I know somethin'

 

Why can't I put your words away

I'd like to have more of you in my veins

I'm gonna tell your papa

Yeh I'm gonna try and ball your babe

Your gold key don't fit my crapper

Ain't got no shit today

 

On your face, in my space, I tell you I know

Somethin' 'bout you, I know somethin' 'bout you

In my space, on your face, I tell you I know somethin'

'Bout you, I know somethin'

On your face, in my space, I tell you I know

Somethin' 'bout you, I know somethin' 'bout you

In my space, on your face, I tell you I know somethin'

'Bout you, I know somethin'

 

I'm gonna tell your mama

Yeh I'm gonna blackball your name

Ain't no way you'll go without me

Every chance I'll make you pay

 

On your face, in my space, I tell you I know

Somethin' 'bout you, I know somethin' 'bout you

In my space, on your face, I tell you I know somethin'

'Bout you, I know somethin'

On your face, in my space, I tell you I know

Somethin' 'bout you, I know somethin' 'bout you

In my space, on your face, I tell you I know somethin'

'Bout you, I know somethin'

 

 


12. Real Thing

 


I messed around as a little boy

I grew up, made the blade my new toy

Friends said boy with what you screwin' around I said

Don't concern yourselves and just

Gimme another blast yeah

 

Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt

Take it away, don't want no more

Even if you say just one more

I won't leave you alone

 

I grew up, went into rehab

You know the doctors never did me no good

They said son you're gonna be a new man

I said thank you very much and

Can I borrow fifty bucks?

 

Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt

Take it away, don't want no more

Even if you say just one more

I won't leave you alone

 

'Cause I'm goin' down the steps on a white line

Goin' down the steps on a white line

Goin' down the steps on a white line

Straight to nowhere

Goin' down the steps on a white line

Goin' down the steps on a white line

Goin' down the steps on a white line

Straight to nowhere

 

 

I messed around as a little boy

I grew up, made the blade my new toy

Friends said boy what you fucking around, I said

Oh my god you'll be goin down

 

Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt

Take it away, don't want no more, no more

Even if you say just one more

I won't leave you alone

 

'Cause I'm goin' down the steps on a white line

Goin' down the steps on a white line

Goin' down the steps on a white line

Straight to nowhere

Goin' down the steps on a white line

Goin' down the steps on a white line

Goin' down the steps on a white line

Straight to nowhere

 

Follow me down

I believe them bones are me

Some say we're born into the grave

 

I feel so alone, gonna end up a

Big ole pile a them bones

 

Dust rise right on over my time

Empty fossil of the new scene

 

I feel so alone, gonna end up a

Big ole pile a them bones

 

Toll due bad dream come true

I feel so alone, gonna end up a

Big ole pile a them...

Big ole pile a them bones

 

 


2. Dam That River

 

I broke you in the canyon

I drowned you in the lake

You a snake that I would trample

Only thing I'd not embrace

 

Oh, you couldn't dam that river

And maybe I don't give a damn anyway

So you couldn't dam that river

And it washed me so far away

 

I pushed and then you stumbled

I kicked you in the face

You stare at me so hollow

Got to keep that killin' pace

 

Oh, you couldn't dam that river

And maybe I don't give a damn anyway

So you couldn't dam that river

And it washed me so far away

 

I burned the place around you

I hit you with a rake

You piss upon my candle

So proving you're a fake

 

Oh, you couldn't dam that river

And maybe I don't give a damn anyway

So you couldn't dam that river

And it washed me so far away

 

 


3. Rain When I Die

 

Is she ready to know my frustration?

What she slippin' inside, slow castration

I'm a riddle so strong, you can't break me

Did she come here to try, try to take me

 

Did she call my name?

I think it's gonna rain

When I die

 

Was it something I said, held against me?

Ain't no life on the run, slowly climbing

Caught in ice so she stares, stares at nothing

I can help her but won't, now she hates me

 

Did she call my name?

I think it's gonna rain

When I die

 

She won't let me hide

She don't want me to cry

 

Will she keep on the ground, trying to ground me

Slowly forgive my lie, lying to save me

Could she love me again, or will she hate me

Prob'ly not, I know why, can't explain me

 

Did she call my name?

I think it's gonna rain

When I die

 

 


4. Sickman

 

 What the hell am I?

Thousand eyes, a fly

Lucky then I'd be

In one day deceased

 

Sickman, sickman, sickman, sickman

 

I can feel the wheel, but I can't steer

When my thoughts become my biggest fear

 

Ahh, what's the difference, I'll die

Ahh, In this sick world of mine

 

What the hell am I

Leper from inside

Inside wall of peace

Dirty and diseased

 

Sickman, sickman, sickman, sickman

 

I can see the end is getting near

I won't rest until my head is clear

 

Ahh, what's the difference, I'll die

Ahh, In this sick world of mine

 

Can you see the end?

Choke on me my friend

Must to drown these thoughts

Purity over rot

 

What the hell am I worn eroded pride

Saddened 10 mile wide

I'm gonna let it slide

 

Sickman, sickman, sickman, sickman

 

I can feel the wheel, but I can't steer

When my thoughts become my biggest fear

 

Ahh, what's the difference, I'll die

Ahh, In this sick world of mine

Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh

 

 


5. Rooster

 

 Ain't found a way to kill me yet

Eyes burn with stinging sweat

Seems every path leads me to nowhere

Wife and kids household pet

Army green was no safe bet

The bullets scream to me from somewhere

 

Yeah, they come to snuff the rooster

Yeah, here come the rooster

You know he ain't gonna die

 

Yeah, they come to snuff the rooster

Yeah, here come the rooster yeah

You know he ain't gonna die

 

Walkin' tall machine gun man

They spit on me in my home land

Gloria sent me pictures of my boy

Got my pills 'gainst mosquito death

My buddy's breathin' his dyin' breath

Oh god please won't you help me make it through

 

Here they come to snuff the rooster

Yeah, here come the rooster yeah

You know he ain't gonna die

No, you know he ain't gonna die

 

 


6. Junkhead

 

 A good night, the best in a long time

A new friend turned me on to an old favorite

Nothing better than a dealer who's high

Be high, convince them to buy

 

What's my drug of choice?

Well, what have you got?

I don't go broke

And I do it a lot

 

Seems so sick to the hypocrite norm

Running their boring drills

But we are an elite race of our own

The stoners, junkies, and freaks

 

Are you happy? I am, man.

Content and fully aware

Money, status, nothing to me

'Cause your life is empty and bare

 

What's my drug of choice?

Well, what have you got?

I don't go broke

And I do it a lot

 

You can't understand a user's mind

But try, with your books and degrees

If you let yourself go and opened your mind

I'll bet you'd be using like me

And it ain't so bad

 

What's my drug of choice?

Well, what have you got?

I don't go broke

And I do it a lot

Say, I do it a lot!

I do it a lot!

I do it a lot!

Say, I do it a lot!

 

 

7. Dirt

 

I have never felt such frustration

Or lack of self control

I want you to kill me

And dig me under, I wanna live no more

 

One who doesn't care is one who shouldn't be

I've tried to hide myself from what is wrong for me

For me

 

I want to taste dirty, a stinging pistol

In my mouth, on my tongue

I want you to scrape me from the walls

And go crazy like you've made me

 

One who doesn't care is one who shouldn't be

I've tried to hide myself from what is wrong for me

One who doesn't care is one who shouldn't be

I've tried to hide myself from what is wrong for me

For me

 

You, you are so special

You have the talent to

Make me feel like dirt

And you, you use your

Talent to dig me under

And cover me with dirt

 

One who doesn't care is one who shouldn't be

I've tried to hide myself from what is wrong for me

One who doesn't care is one who shouldn't be

I've tried to hide myself from what is wrong for me

 

 


8. God Smack

 

 Care not for the men who wonder

Straw that broke your back, you're under

Cast all them aside who care

Empty eyes and dead end stare

 

Don't you know that none are blind

To the lie, and you think I don't find what you hide?

 

What in God's name have you done?

Stick your arm for some real fun

 

For the horse you've grown much fonder

Than for me, that I don't ponder

As the hair of one who bit you

Smiling bite your own self, too

 

And I think that you're not blind

To the ones you left behind

I'll be here

 

What in God's name have you done?

Stick your arm for some real fun

 

So be yearning all your life

Twisting, turning like a knife

 

Now you know the reasons why

Can't get high, or you will die

Or you'll die

 

What in God's name have you done?

Stick your arm for some real fun

So your sickness weighs a ton

And God's name is smack for some

Yeah

 

 


9. Hate To Feel

 

What's gone wrong, I can't see straight

Been too long, so full of hate

 

What the fuck will it take

Drown myself in my wake

Another shaggy D.A.

Now a dog, shake my leg

Plastic man, paper face

Candy heart, what a waste

Gotta change, set a date

Eat my cake, with my plate

 

Stare at me with empty eyes and point your words at me

Mirror on the wall will show you what you're scared to see

 

I can see,  -   (wish I couldn't see at all)

I can feel   -   (wish I couldn't feel at all)

Hate to see - (wish I couldn't see at all)

Hate to feel - (wish I couldn't feel at all)

 

So climb the walls,

Thin my blood now

And I crawl, back to bed now

 

What the hell, gotta rest

Aching pain in my chest

Lucky me, now I'm set

Little bug for a pet

New Orleans, gotta get

Pin cushion medicine

Used to be curious

Now the shit's sustenance

 

All this time I swore I'd never be like my old man

What the hay it's time to face exactly what I am

 

I can see,  -   (wish I couldn't see at all)

I can feel   -   (wish I couldn't feel at all)

Hate to see - (wish I couldn't see at all)

Hate to feel - (wish I couldn't feel at all)

 

What the hell, gotta rest

Aching pain in my chest

Lucky me, now I'm set

Little bug for a pet

New Orleans, gotta get

Pin cushion medicine

Used to be curious

Now the shit's sustenance

 

All this time I swore I'd never be like my old man

What the hay it's time to face exactly what I am

 

I can see,  -   (wish I couldn't see at all)

I can feel   -   (wish I couldn't feel at all)

Hate to see - (wish I couldn't see at all)

Hate to feel - (wish I couldn't feel at all)

I can see,  -   (wish I couldn't see at all)

I can feel   -   (wish I couldn't feel at all)

Hate to see - (wish I couldn't see at all)

Hate to feel - (wish I couldn't feel at all)

 

 


10. Iron Gland

 

 


11. Angry Chair

 

Sitting on an angry chair

Angry walls that steal the air

Stomach hurts and I don't care

 

What do I see across the way

See myself molded in clay

Stares at me, yeah I'm afraid

Changing the shape of his face

 

Candles red I have a pair

Shadows dancing everywhere

burning on the angry chair

 

Little boy made a mistake

Pink cloud has now turned to gray

All that I want is to play

Get on your knees, time to pray, boy

 

I don't mind, yeah

I don't mind,

I don't mind, yeah,

I don't mind,

Lost my mind, yeah

But I don't mind,

Can't find it anywhere

I don't mind

 

Corporate prison, we stay

I'm a dull boy, work all day

So I'm strung out anyway

 

Loneliness is not a phase

Field of pain is where I graze

Serenity is far away

 

Saw my reflection and cried

So little hope that I died

Feed me your lies, open wide

Weight of my heart, not the size

 

I don't mind, yeah

I don't mind,

I don't mind, yeah,

I don't mind,

Lost my mind, yeah

But I don't mind,

Can't find it anywhere

I don't mind

 

Pink cloud has now turned to gray

All that I want is to play

Get on your knees time to pray, boy

 

 


12. Down In A Hole

 

Bury me softly in this womb

I give this part of me for you

Sand rains down and here I sit

Holding rare flowers in a tomb... in bloom

 

Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved

See my heart I decorate it like a grave

You don't understand who they thought I was supposed to be

Look at me now a man who won't let himself be

 

Down in a hole, feelin' so small

Down in a hole, losin' my soul

I'd like to fly,

But my wings have been so denied

 

Down in a hole and they've put all the stones in their place

I've eaten the sun so my tongue has been burned of the taste

I have been guilty of kicking myself in the teeth

I will speak no more of my feelings beneath

 

Down in a hole, feelin' so small

Down in a hole, losin' my soul

I'd like to fly,

But my wings have been so denied

 

Bury me softly in this womb (Oh I want to be inside of you)

I give this part of me for you (Oh I want to be inside of you)

Sand rains down and here I sit (Oh I want to be inside of you)

Holding rare flowers in a tomb... in bloom (Oh I want to be inside)

 

Down in a hole, feelin' so small

Down in a hole, losin' my soul

Down in a hole, feelin' so small

Down in a hole, out of control

 

I'd like to fly,

But my wings have been so denied

 

 


13. Would?

 

Know me broken by my master

Teach thee on child of love hereafter

 

Into the flood again

Same old trip it was back then

So I made a big mistake

Try to see it once my way

 

Drifting body it's sole desertion

Flying not yet quite the notion

 

Into the flood again

Same old trip it was back then

So I made a big mistake

Try to see it once my way

 

Into the flood again

Same old trip it was back then

So I made a big mistake

Try to see it once my way

 

Am I wrong?

Have I run too far to get home

Have I gone?

And left you here alone

Am I wrong?

Have I run too far to get home

Have I gone?

And left you here alone

If I would, could you?

1. All Secrets Known    

 

Hope, a new beginning

Time, time to start living

Just like just before we died

 

There's no going back to the place we started from

 

Hurt, falling through fingers

Trust, trust in the feeling

There's something left inside

 

There's no going back to the place we started from

All secrets known

 

Calm, old wounds are healing

Strong, truth is worth saving

I want to feel alive

 

There's no going back to the place we started from

All secrets known

 

 


2. Check My Brain    

 

So I found myself in the sun, oh yeah

A hell of a place to end the run, oh yeah

 

California I'm fine, somebody check my brain

California's all right, somebody check my brain

Check my brain

 

I'm walking the streets I creep and fall, oh yeah

When she sang I answered the call, oh yeah

 

California I'm fine, somebody check my brain

California's all right, somebody check my brain

Check my brain

 

Tears that fill my bone

Years expended gone

California's all right, somebody check my brain

Check my brain

 

Tears that fill my bone

Years expended gone

 

Tears that fill my bone

Years expended gone

 

Check my brain (x3)

 

 


3. Last Of My Kind

 

Last Of My Kind

 

So young, so brazen, so unholy

I come to you in painted skies

Your broken teacher, ancient story

The living challenge to their lies

 

Trapped in the cold outside

There ain't no shelter

And they want to force my hand

 

Until I take what I want

And then break all the lies

That they feed the fucking liars

Smash all the temples

And crawl through the rubble

And cry to the fallen

 

I'm the last of my kind still standing

I'm alone

 

Roll over all upon the hillside

I am ??? what they throw away

I go to sleep behind the eight ball

I live to fight for one more day

 

I'm trapped in the cold outside

There ain't there no shelter

And they want to force my hand

 

Until I take what I want

And then break all the lies

That they feed the fucking liars

Smash all the temples

And crawl through the rubble

And cry to the fallen

 

I'm the last of my kind still standing

I'm alone

 

(The last of my kind still standing)

 

 


4. Your Decision    

 

Time to change has come and gone

Watched your fears become your god

It's your decision

It's your decision

 

Overwhelmed, you chose to run

Apathetic to the stunt

It's your decision

It's your decision

 

You feed the fire that burned us all

When you lie

To feel the pain that spurs you on

Black inside

 

No one plans to take the path that brings you lower

And here you stand before us all and say it's over

It's over

 

It might seem an afterthought

Yes, it hurts to you know you're bought

It's your decision

It's your decision

 

You feed the fire that burned us all

When you lie

To feel the pain that spurs you on

Black inside

 

It's your decision

It's your decision

 

No one plans to take the path that brings you lower

And here you stand before us all and say it's over

It's over

 

 


5. A Looking In View    

 

Hear foot steps creak the floor

The shadows give away

Someone outside the door

Wont let 'em in

 

Life damaged gives to crime

A run down broke machine

That steals your piece of mind

Before you know it's gone

Lay down

Lay

 

Silence burning on your tongue

Keep us separate

 

Hiding in the darkest slumber

Boiling to the surface

 

A looking in view too long on the outside

Desperate plans make sense in the low light

A looking in view too long on the outside

Desperate plans make sense in the low light

 

These things I hate in you

Also reflect it seems

Distortion laced with spite

Teach you how to leave

Lay down

Lay

 

Hiding in the darkest slumber

Boiling to the surface

Crawling on your skin, discomfort

Makes you brake and run and stumble, fall

 

A looking in view too long on the outside

Desperate plans make sense in the low light

A looking in view too long on the outside

Desperate plans make sense in the low light

 

It's why you never tell me (what's on your mind)

It's why you never tell me (what's on your mind)

It's why you never tell me (what's on your mind)

It's why you never tell me (what's on your mind)

 

A looking in view too long on the outside

Desperate plans make sense in the low light

A looking in view too long on the outside

Desperate plans make sense in the low light

 

It's why you never tell me (what's on your mind)

 

 


6. When The Sun Rose Again

 

Run

Run 'til you drop

Hide

Everyone knows

 

We all trade in never befores

Selling out for the score

 

Pray

Squeal when you're caught

Cry

It's not my fault

 

Time to trade in never befores

Selling out for the score

 

It seems you prophesized, all of this would end

Were you burned away, when the sun rose again

 

Hate

Long wearing thin

Negative

All you've been

 

Time to trade in never befores

Selling out for the score

 

It seems you prophesized, all of this would end

Were you burned away, when the sun rose again

 

 


7. Acid Bubble    

 

You tried to kill me off

Surprised, I remain

A scale tips, impossible

Afraid of my own name

 

And I always paid attention to all the lines you crossed

Forgive this imperfection it shows, and know

I am the child that lives and cries in a corner

Dies in a corner

 

Alone inside your mind

 

Intent obsolescence

Built into the system

 

I tried to shake it off

You can't remove this stain

A scale breaks, impossible

Afraid we are the same

 

And you never paid attention, to all the lines I crossed

Forgive this imperfection it shows, and know

I am the child that lives and cries in a corner

Dies in a corner

 

Alone inside your mind

 

Hides in a corner

Dies in a corner

Alone inside your mind

 

Intent obsolescence

Built into the system

 

 


8. Lessons Learned    

 

Just another lesson learned

Wear a scar, a bore repeating

Take a simple fateful turn

Opened up to stop the bleeding

 

Feeling like you never could

Been the disconnected frying

Hit the vein and struck a nerve

Seeing through a self that's blinding

 

Nowhere to buy in

Most of us hiding

Others are shining

 

You know when you find it

In your darkest hour, you strike gold

A thought clicks, not the be-all end-all

 

Just another lesson learned...

 

Just another brick you toss

Stone the number one deceiver

Multiply the added cost

Easy to become a believer

 

Feeling like you never could

Been the disconnected frying

Hit the vein and struck a nerve

Seeing through a self that's blinding

 

Nowhere to buy in

Most of us hiding

Others are shining

 

You know when you find it

In your darkest hour, you strike gold

A thought clicks, not the be-all end-all

 

Just another lesson learned...

 

 


9. Take Her Out    

 

Take Her Out

 

Here I am again

I feel time is dragging on

Are you getting tired of me?

Wenching, overdrawn

 

Faceless, blind

Want to take her out again

She's not just mine

Want to take her out again

 

In a body less embraced

Thriving, I have grown

Fickle, changing grip, replace

Choking, take it all

 

Faceless, blind

Want to take her out again

She's not just mine

Want to take her out again

 

Dedicated, true to form

Still the only one

Only guarantee

Continue after I am done

 

Faceless, blind

Want to take her out again

She's not just mine

Want to take her out again

 

 


10.Private Hell    

 

Private Hell

 

Give away another memory

Move another truth

Painted words hooked on the walls

Echoing untrue

(I feel cold)

 

Promises abound

You rarely find them to begin

Maybe I'm afraid

To let you all the way in

(I guess so)

 

I excuse myself

I'm used to my little cell

I abuse myself

In my very own private hell

 

Lately I'm beside myself

Pretending unconcerned

Standing at a corner

Where I threw you on a turn

(I move on)

 

Flowers on the cross remain

Mark an ending scene

Dammit, all this blood you spilled

Turned the grass more green

(Life is short)

 

I excuse myself

I'm used to my little cell

I abuse myself

In my very own private hell

 

 


11.Black Gives Way to Blue

 

I don't want to feel no more

It's easier to keep falling

Imitation's a veil

Emptiness all

Tommorow's haunted by your ghost

 

Lay down

Black gives way to blue

Lay down

I remember you

 

Fading out by your side

Conciously avoiding changes

Curtains drawn now its done

Silencing all

Tommorow's forcing a goodbye

 

Lay down

Black gives way to blue

Lay down

I'l be here for you

12.Over Now

 

 

 


1. Grind

 

In the darkest hole

You'd be well advised

Not to plan my funeral before the body dies

Come the morning light

It's a see-through show

What you may have heard and what you think you know

 

Let the sun never blind your eyes

Let me sleep so my teeth won't grind

Hear a sound from a voice inside

 

Sure to play a part

So you love the game

And in truth your lies become one and same

I could set you free

Rather hear the sound

Of your body breaking as I take you down

 

Let the sun never blind your eyes

Let me sleep so my teeth won't grind

Hear a sound from a voice inside

 

In the darkest hole

You'd be well advised

Not to plan my funeral before the body dies

 

Let the sun never blind your eyes

Let me sleep so my teeth won't grind

Hear a sound from a voice inside

 

Let the sun never blind your eyes

Let me sleep so my teeth won't grind

Hear a sound from a voice inside

 

 


2. Brush Away

 

I could use some

Time to curl away

My aggression

Is where you stake your claim

Why I question

This curve on which you grade

My conception

A joke? Or latest craze?

 

I try to get away

And yet I stick around

So fall and crawl away

And brush away loose ground

 

My intention

Can I arrive at eight

Lie and dream some

Surprise you guys I'm late

All right, correction

Forgetting something wait

 

I try to get away

And yet I stick around

So fall and crawl away

And brush away loose ground

 

I try to get away

And yet I stick around

So fall and crawl away

And brush away loose ground

 

Brush away loose ground

Brush away

 

 


3. Sludge Factory

 

You insult me in my home you're forgiven this time

Things go well, your eyes dilate you shake, and I'm high?

Look in my eyes deep and watch the clouds change with time

20 hours won't print my picture milk carton size

 

Carton size

Carton size

Carton size

 

Call me up congratulations ain't the real why

There's no pressure besides brilliance let's say by day 9

Endless corporate ignorance lets me control time

By the way, by the way, by the way, by the way

 

Once again you see an in discolored skin gives you away

So afraid you kindly gurgle out a date...

For me

 

Now the body of one soul I adore wants to die

You have always told me you'd not live past 25

I say stay long enough to repay all who caused strife

 

Once again you see an in discolored skin gives you away

So afraid you kindly gurgle out a date, for me

Once again you see an in discolored skin gives you away

So afraid you kindly gurgle, out a date...

For me

 

 


4. Heaven Beside You

 

Be what you wanna be

See what you came to see

Been what you wanna be

I don't like what I see

 

Like the coldest winter chill

Heaven beside you ...Hell within

Like the coldest winter chill

Heaven beside you ...Hell within

Like the coldest winter will

Heaven beside you ...Hell within

And you think you have it still, heaven inside you

 

So there's problems in your life

That's fucked up

And I'm not blind

I'm just see-through faded,

Super jaded,

And out of my mind

 

Do what you wanna do

Go out and seek your truth

When I'm down and blue

Rather be me than you

 

Like the coldest winter chill

Heaven beside you ...Hell within

Like the coldest winter chill

Heaven beside you ...Hell within

Like the coldest winter will

Heaven beside you ...Hell within

And you wish you had it still, heaven inside you

 

So there's problems in your life

That's fucked up

I'm not blind

I'm just see-through faded,

Super jaded,

And out of your mind

 

Like the coldest winter chill

Heaven beside you ...Hell within

Like the coldest winter chill

Heaven beside you ...Hell within

Like the coldest winter will

Heaven beside you ...Hell within

And you know you have it still, heaven inside you

 

So there's problems in your life

That's fucked up

But you're not blind

You're just see-through faded,

Overrated,

And out of your mind

 

 


5. Head Creeps

 

No more time

Just one more time

 

So crazy, beat the strain

Too lazy, shake the gray

So, and she willed the drain

So let me be defamed

Your redundancy stains

Tired of infantile claims

Like puppets on their strings

Untangle you from me

 

Time to call the doggies off

Tired of the shadowin'

Slide me to the side again

Slapped in the face again

 

No more time

Just one more time

 

Your redundancy stains

Tired of infantile claims

Live puppets on a string

Untangle you from me

So crazy, beat the strain

Too lazy, shake the gray

So, and she willed the drain

So let me be defamed

 

Time to call the doggies off

Tired of the shadowin'

Slide me to the side again

Slapped in the face again

 

One day my plane leaves

Some way my head creeps

Some day my way leads

Some way my head creeps

 

No more time

Just one more time

 

Empty room sets the scene

Pick at me slow, pain fiend

Suck me through barbed screen

Anger becomes our Queen

Tongue whipping forked black

How long until you crack

Surprised and set back

Lackey's loose talk for fact

 

Time to call the doggies off

Tired of the shadowin'

Slide me to the side again

Slapped in the face again

 

Time to call the doggies off

Tired of the shadowin'

Slide me to the side again

Slapped in the face again

 

One day my plane leaves

Some way my head creeps

Some day my way leads

Some way my head creeps

...Creeps

 

No more time

Just one more time

 

So crazy feel the hate

Yeah, I've got years to wait

I know it's not too late

Lending clean hands to fate

Rise from the dirt I'm in

Hide in another's skin

Stick black dress doll with pin

Your mouth takes on my grin

 

 


6. Again

 

Hey

Time to go and

I've been hurtin', yeah

When I'm layin'

Concentrating on dyin', yeah

 

You're right as rain

But you're wrong to blame

Agreed my crime's the same

 

My sins I'll claim

Give you back shed pain

Go find a place for own shame

So you can deal

with this thing unreal

No one made you feel any hurt, yeah

 

Body's movin'

Only provin'

No one needs to move

Still believin'

Yet mistaken

All God's children, yeah

And I must say

I was stupid

Selfishly she consumed, yeah

 

And you must change

Patterns all we trained

Or n'er regain peace you seek

Now you hear me

For the things I see

Yeah, I believe in inner peace, yeah

 

Throw out

Blow up

Hold in

Show fine

No signs

Grow blind

 

 


8. God Am

 

Dear God, how have you been, then?

Nothin' thrilling me too much, yeah

Nothin' thrilling me too much, yeah

Nothing thrilling me

10. Nothin' Song

 

Began this take at 7:38

Head hit the board, enough that it aches

Wonder should I be workin' so late

Began this take at 7:38

Head hit the board, enough that it aches

Wonder should I be workin' so late

Wonder should I be workin' so late

 

Began this take at 7:38

Head hit the board, enough that it aches

Wonder should I be workin' so late

Wonder should I be workin' so late

 

The nothin' song sticks to your mouth

Like peanut butter on the brain

Nothin' ever stays the same

 

Went outside to give all a break

Wearing cowhide, steak on a skate

Back inside, Sam throw away your cake

Went outside to give a break

Went outside to give a break

Wearing cowhide, steak on a skate

Back inside Sam, throw away your cake

Back inside Sam, throw away your cake

 

The nothin' song sticks to your mouth

Like peanut butter on the brain

Nothin' ever stays the same

The nothin' song sticks to your mouth

Like peanut butter on the brain

Nothin' ever stays the same

 

Nothin'

Yeah, nothin'

Ooh, Nothin'

Nothin'...

 

Gotta finish so I can awake

Feed the cat or she spreads all the waste

Snap her neck or trade in for new make

Gotta finish so I can awake

Feed the cat or she spreads all the waste

Snap her neck or trade in for new make

Snap her neck or trade in for new make

 

The nothin' song sticks to your mouth

Like peanut butter on the brain

Nothin' ever stays the same

The nothin' song sticks to your mouth

 

Nothin'...

 

 


11. Frogs

 

What does friend mean to you?

A word so wrongfully abused

Are you like me, confused

All included but you

 

Alone...

 

The sounds of silence often soothe

Shapes and colors shift with mood

Pupils widen and change their hue

Rapid brown avoid clear blue

 

Why's it have to be this way

Be this way

Be this way

Be this way

Be this way

Be this way

 

Flowers watched through wide eyes blue

A child sings an unclaimed tune

Innocence spins cold cocoon

Grow to see the pain too soon

 

Why's it have to be this way

Be this way

Be this way

Be this way

Be this way

Be this way

 

 


12. Over Now

 

Yeah, it's over now

But I can breathe somehow

When it's all worn out

I'd rather go without

 

You know it's been on my mind

Could you stand right here

Look me straight in the eye and say

That it's over now

 

We pay our debt sometime

 

Well it's over now

Yet I can see somehow

When it's all gone wrong

It's hard to be so strong

 

You know it's been on my mind

Could you stand right here

Look me straight in the eye and say

That it's over now

 

We pay our debt sometime

Yeah, we pay our debt sometime

We pay our debt sometime

Yeah, we pay our debt sometime

 

Guess it's over now

I seem alive somehow

When it's out of sight

Just wait and do your time

 

You know it's been on my mind

Could I stand right here

Look myself in the eye, and say

That it's over now

 

We pay our debt sometime

Yeah, we pay our debt sometime

We pay our debt sometime

Yeah, we pay our debt sometime
