Eyes Wide Open

The hating and the waiting, hesitating
I just want to be done with you faking
For the taking but I’m wicked
Up to the fact that you’re lying, and denying
Justifying all the actions you take
It’s pathetic and poetic

It’s just sick!
It’s just sick!

Is compromise something you don’t understand?
You force your hand but my eyes are wide open.
Caught in the web of your self-serving plan.
Don’t force my hand when my eyes are wide open.

Seeing is believing, now I’m leaving
All the damage is done
And you’ve broken the notion of trust
Cause you’re lying and denying
Justifying all the actions you take
It’s pathetic and poetic

It’s just sick!
It’s just sick!

Is compromise something you don’t understand?
You force your hand but my eyes are wide open.
Caught in the web of your self-serving plan.
Don’t force my hand when my eyes are wide open.

Seeing is believing, now I’m leaving
All the damage is done

All the damage is done!
All the damage is done!

Is compromise something you don’t understand?
You force your hand but my eyes are wide open.
Caught in the web of your self-serving plan.
Don’t force my hand when my eyes are wide open.

Don’t force my hand when my eyes are wide open.
Don’t force my hand when my eyes are wide open.

Force my hand
When my eyes are wide open.

Lying and denying is just sick!
Lying and denying is just sick!

It’s just sick!




Not Again

Do you feel like you're falling?
You've taken this step
In front of you is further from the truth
You fall apart in front of me again
Again!

Denial isn't the way to forgiveness
You always swore that I was wrong

[Chorus:]
Not again
No taste for the crow you feed me
Not again
It's not a matter of if I care
Not again
What an intricate web you're weaving
Did it again

So you try not to follow
While the clock fails to sleep
So here we are back where it began
And toe to toe I stand in front of you again
Again

Denial isn't the way to forgiveness
You always swore that I was wrong

[Chorus:]
Not again
No taste for the crow you feed me
Not again
It's not a matter of if I care
Not again
What an intricate web you're weaving
Again and again

[Solo]

[Chorus:]
Not again
No taste for the crow you feed me
Not again
It's not a matter of if I care
Not again
What an intricate web you're weaving
Again and again
Again!
Again!




Failing

Yeah, like the threat of the darkest clouds rolling in on a sunny day...
Yeah, like a field that has no rain...
Yeah, like a dog that wanders aimless, with no mane...
Yeah, like a cut without the pain...

You couldn't feel this?
You couldn't take the pain?
You couldn't live this?

And I'm just trying to get through to you,
And I am failing
Lie like I'm not even here,
My heart is breaking
Trying to see through your stare,
It looks right through me
I smile and pretend I'm not there,
To keep from going crazy

Yeah, like the day that your guardian angel decided to fly away...
Yeah, like a bruise that doesn't fade...
Yeah, like a memory that tortures your soul until your dying day...
Yeah, like the life you couldn't save...

You couldn't feel this?
You couldn't take the pain?
You couldn't live this?

And I'm just trying to get through to you,
And I am failing
Lie like I'm not even here,
My heart is breaking
Trying to see through your stare,
It looks right through me
I smile and pretend I'm not there,
To keep from going crazy

I've tried to... get through to you
I've tried to... I'm trying
I've tried to... get through to you
I've tried to...

And I'm still trying to get through to you,
And I am failing
Lie like I'm not even here,
My heart is breaking
Trying to see through your stare,
It looks right through me
I smile and pretend I'm not there,
To keep from going crazy

I've tried to... get through to you
I've tried to...
I've tried to... get through to you

I've tried to... get through.

I've tried to... get through to you
I've tried to...




Wannabe

I'm selling records
What is it that you do?
Sitting in your mama's basement with a shiatsu
Peanut butter on your dick
Right hand going click
With your left hand giving you a rim job
So now you wanna talk about me
Who's name is on the marque
You hate everything that you can't be
I've heard enough and scream!

You're just a sell-out, turn-coat rockstar!
Pussy, poser pornstar!

Because you're nothing but a wannabe
You're so easy when you're faceless
Why don't you focus on your misery?
Instead of focusing on me

So number two, that's right
What is it you're rolling?
Now that your mama's ford focus got stolen
Well, it don't matter because you got nowhere to go
So back to the hating, frantic masturbating
So now you wanna talk about me
You know the songs that you download for free
You hate everything that you can't be
I've heard enough and scream!
You're just a sell-out, turn-coat popstar!
Pussy, poser rockstar!

Because you're nothing but a wannabe
You're so easy when you're faceless
Why don't you focus on your misery?
Instead of focusing on me

So number two that's right
What is it you're rolling?
Now that your mama's ford focus got stolen
But, it don't matter because you got nowhere to go
So back to the hating, frantic masturbating
So now you wanna talk about me
So now you wanna talk about me

[Solo]

Because you're nothing but a wannabe
It's so easy when you're faceless
Why don't you focus on your misery?
Instead of focusing on me

Nothing but a wannabe
It's so easy when you're faceless
Why don't you focus on your misery?
Instead of focusing on me

I'm selling records
What is it that you do?
Sitting in your mama's basement
I'm selling records
What is it that you do?
Selling records.




Throw It All Away

It doesn't feel like this is over
It's never felt like it's begun
Always looking over my shoulder
Waiting for the end to come

And then you throw it all away
Throw it all away
Nothing I could say
Throw it all away

And you feel like you're still here bleeding
You bleed until there's nothing left
It doesn't seem to ever be enough for you
But leaves you empty in the end

And then you throw it all away
Throw it all away
Nothing I could say
Throw it all away

It's never enough to break down inside
It's never enough to hold on to pride
It's never enough to give up your soul
It's never enough

It doesn't feel like this is over...

And then you throw it all away
Throw it all away
Nothing I could say
Throw it all away




Take A Breath

You can take all the things you think I need
All I wear upon my sleeve
All the ways that you perceive
I no longer need it

I know what it means
black and white
Got what I need
and that's why..

You lead me on the edge of sanity
There's not much left, just take a breath
You paint me out as mediocrity
Put to the test, just take a breath

And me, I just take things as they come
I stick around until it's done
and I'm not your chosen one,
but can you admit

I know what it means
black and white
Got what I need
and that's why...

You lead me on the edge of sanity
There's not much left, just take a breath
You paint me out as mediocrity
Put to the test, just take a breath

You can take all the things you think I need
all the ways that you...

You lead me on the edge of sanity
There's not much left, just take a breath
You paint me out as mediocrity
Put to the test, just take a breath

I know what it means
Black and White!!!!!




The Bottom

You suffocate
You cannot wait for this to just be over
You wanna run and just be done
You're what you can't control here

Don't know what you're thinking
This ship is sinking

I'll meet you at the bottom
The waves can't wash away all the scars you bare
See you at the bottom
You just hold on to the things that keep you there

You suffer the cost when all this is lost
It just doesn't make sense to go there
All the hate that your fear
It slowly appears back into your with no control

Don't know what you're thinking
This ship is sinking

I'll meet you at the bottom
The waves can't wash away all the scars you've made
See you at the bottom
You just hold on to the things that keep you there

Just fucking stand for something
You'll never take us all
You never get it right
You never get it right
We'll always stand and fight
You never get it right
It's cold down here at the bottom

I'll meet you at the bottom
The waves can't wash away all the scars you've made
See you at the bottom
You just hold on to the things that keep you there




Now

When you come to a fork in road
You can almost taste it
Never knowing which way to go
It's not been tested
All alone you try to take it, to fake it
And is the road less traveled taken
Or forsaken?

Now
It's up to you
The path that you choose
Gotta do something different
Now
It's all the same
No one to blame
Gotta do something different
Now
So you head down the road that you chose
Just keep pushing forward
And the window is trying to close
Just to shut you out
All alone you try to take it, to fake it
And is the road less traveled taken
Or forsaken?

Now
It's up to you
The path that you choose
Gotta do something different
Now
It's all the same
No one to blame
Gotta do something different

[Solo]

Something different

It's up to you
The path that you choose
Gotta do something different
Now
It's all the same
No one to blame
Gotta do something different

Now
It's up to you
The path that you choose
Gotta do something different
Gotta do something different
Now.




Paper Wings

You're pathetic
You're fucking weak
And I'm sick of it all
Social anesthetic
To the people you meet
And I'm sick of it all
You're unapologetic
Even though you shouldn't be
And I'm sick of it all
You just don't get it
You never did
And I'm sick of it all
Falling faster
(Sick of it all)
To learning
The weight of your sorrow
Make some paper wings
And learn to fly
If there's no tomorrow
Burn your paper wings
And say goodbye
You cut me
So fucking deep
And I'm sick of it all
You fucking drain me
I can't breathe
And I'm sick of it all
I break down
On my knees
And I'm sick of it all
You're so unreal
How you just don't get it
And I'm sick of it all
Falling faster
(I'm sick of it all)
To learning
The weight of your sorrow
Make some paper wings
And learn to fly
If there's no tomorrow
Burn your paper wings
And say goodbye

I can't go on like this
Not even one more day
I can't go on like this
I can't go on

I can't go on like this
Not even one more day
I can't go on like this
I can't go on

The weight of your sorrow
Make some paper wings
And learn to fly
If there's no tomorrow
Burn your paper wings
And say goodbye

Burn your paper wings
And say goodbye




Something to Remind You

So this is it
I say goodbye
To this chapter of my ever-changing life
And there's mistakes
The path is long
And I'm sure I'll answer for them when I'm gone

So when the day comes and
The sun won't touch my face
Tell the ones who cared enough
That I finally left this place

That's been so cold
Look at my face
All the stories it will tell I can't erase
The road is long
Just one more song
A little something to remind you when I'm gone
When I'm gone

The road to hell
Along the way
Is paved with good intentions so they say
And some believe
That no good deed
Goes unpunished in the end or so it seems

So when the day comes and
The sun won't touch my face
Tell the ones who care enough
That I finally left this place

That's been so cold
Look at my face
All the stories it will tell I can't erase
The road is long
Just one more song
A little something to remind you when I'm gone
When I'm gone

So this is it
I say goodbye
To this chapter of my ever-changing life
And there's mistakes
The path was long
And I'm sure I'll answer for them when I'm gone
When I'm gone




Spleen

Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I feel I give everything to you
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I think there's nothing left to do
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I don't like today take it all away
Just like what you say I don't want you
Kinda like the way everything is gray
Just like what you say I don't need you
I don't look like you do the things you do
But I'm fucked up too I don't need you
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I feel you are what's changed my soul
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I think I'll never lose control
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I don't like today, take it all away
Just like what you say I don't want you
Kinda like the way, everything is gray
Just like what you say I don't need you
I don't look like you, do the things you do
But I'm fucked up too I don't need you
I don't understand it
You're killing this planet
The scabs on your face
It's a fucking disgrace
I blame you
I blame you
I blame you
I blame you
I blame you
I blame you
I blame you
Can't breathe!
Shut up
Shut up
I'm don't like today, take it all away (shut up)
Just like what you say - I don't want you (shut up)
Kinda like the way, everything is gray (shut up)
Just like what you say I don't need you (shut up)
I don't look like you, do the things you do (shut up)
But I'm fucked up too - I don't need you (shut up)
