Ain't My Bitch

Outta my way
Outta my day
Outta your mind and into mine
Into no one
Into not one
Into your step but outta time

Head strong
What's wrong?
I've already heard this song before

But now it's time
To kiss you ass good-bye

Dragging me down
Why you around?
So useless

It ain't my fault
It ain't my call
It ain't my bitch-a

Down on the sun
Down and no fun
Down and out where the hell ya been?

Damn it all down
Damn it unbound
Damn it all down ta hell again

Stand tall

But now it's time
To kiss your ass good-bye

Dragging me down

Outta my way
Outta my day
Outta of your mind and into mine
Into no one

Into your step but outta of time

Head strong

But now it's time
To kiss your ass good-bye
And now it's time to kiss you ass good-bye

Dragging me down
Why you around?
So useless

The House Jack Built

Open doors so I walk inside
Close my eyes
Find my place to hide
And I shake as I take it in
Let the show begin

Open my eyes
Just to have them close again
Well on my way
But on my way to where I've been

It swallows me
As it takes me in it's fog
I twist away
As I give this world a nod

Open doors so I walk inside
Close my eyes
Find my place to hide
And I shake as I take it in
Let the show begin

Open my eyes
Just to have them close once again
Don't want control
As it takes me down and down and down again

Is that the moon
Or just a light that lights this dead end street?
Is that you there
Or just another demon that I meet?

The higher you are
The farther you fall
The longer the walk
The farther you crawl
My body my temple
This temple it tilts
Step into the house that Jack built

The higher you are
The farther you fall
The longer the walk
The farther you crawl
My body my temple
This temple it tilts
Yes this is the house that Jack built

Open doors as I walk inside
Swallow me so the pain subsides
And I shake as I take this in
Let the show begin

The higher you are
The farther you fall
The longer the walk
The farther you crawl
My body my temple
This temple it tilts
Yes this is the house that Jack built

The higher you are
The farther you fall
The longer the walk
The farther you crawl
My body my temple
This temple it tilts
"Yes I am I am I am"

Open my eyes
It swallows me
Is that you there
I twist away

Away
Away
Away


Until It Sleeps

Where do I take this pain of mine
I run but it stays right by my side

So tear me open and pour me out
There's things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me until it sleeps

Just like the curse, just like the stray
You feed it once and now it stays
Now it stays

So tear me open but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me until I'm clean

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you so hold me
Until it sleeps

So tell me why you've chosen me
Don't want your grip
Don't want your greed
Don't want it

I'll tear me open make you gone
No more can you hurt anyone
And the fear still shakes me
So hold me, until it sleeps

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you, holds you, holds you until it sleeps (x4)

I Don't want it want it want it want it want it
No

So tear me open but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me 'til I'm clean

I'll tear thee open make you gone
No longer will you hurt anyone
And the hate still shapes me
So hold me until it sleeps (x5)

King Nothing

Wish I may
Wish I might
Have this I wish tonight
Are you satisfied?

Dig for gold
Dig for fame
You dig to make your name
Are you pacified?

All the wants you waste
All the things you've chased

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around

Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled
And you're left with just a name

Where's your crown King Nothing?
Where's your crown?

Hot and cold
Bought and sold
A heart as hard as gold
Yeah! Are you satisfied?

Wish I might
Wish I may
You wish your life away
Are you pacified?

All the wants you waste
All the things you've chased

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around

Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled
And you're left with just a name

Where's your crown King Nothing?
Where's your crown?

Huh!

(Spoken)
I wish I may
I wish I might
Have this wish I wish tonight
I want that star
I want it now
I want it all and I don't care how

Careful what you wish
Careful what you say
Careful what you wish
You may regret it
Careful what you wish
You just might get it

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around

Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled
And you're left with just a name

Where's your crown King Nothing?
Nothing

No you're just nothing
Where's your crown King Nothing?
No you're just nothing
Absolutely nothing

Off to never never land


Hero of the Day

Mama they try and break me

The window burns to light the way back home
A light that warms no matter where they've gone

They're off to find the hero of the day
But what if they should fall by someone's wicked way

Still the window burns
Time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames
Do you feel your name?
Did you hear your babies crying?

Mama they try and break me
Still they try and break me

'Scuse me while I tend to how to feel
These things return to me that still seem real

Now deservingly this easy chair
But the rocking stopped by wheels of despair

Don't want your aid
But the fist I make
For you,can't hold off fear
No not on me
So please excuse me
While I tend to how I feel

But now the dreams and waking screams
That everlast the night
So build a wall
Behind it crawl
And hide until it's light
So can't you hear your babies crying now?

Still the window burns
Time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames
Can't you hear your name?
Did you hear your babies crying?

But now the dreams and waking screams
That everlast the night
So build a wall
Behind it crawl
And hide until it's light
So can't you hear your babies crying now?

Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try
Mama they try
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try
Mama they try

Bleeding Me

I'm diggin' my way
I'm diggin' my way to somethin'
I'm diggin' my way to somethin' better

I'm pushin' to stay
I'm pushin' to stay with something
I'm pushin' to stay with something better

I'm sowing the seeds
I'm sowing the seeds I've taken
I'm sowing the seeds I take for granted

This thorn in my side
This thorn in my side is from the tree
This thorn in my side is from the tree I've planted
It tears me and I bleed
And I bleed

Caught under wheels roll

Come make me pure
Bleed me a cure

Caught under wheels roll
I take that leash
I'm bleeding me
Can't stop to save my soul
I take the leash
That's leading me
I'm bleeding me
I can't take it
I can't take it
I can't take it
Oh, oh the bleeding of me

I'm pushin' to stay with somethin'
I'm pushin' to stay with something better
With something better

Cure

(Spoken)
The man takes another bullet
He keeps them all within
He must seek no matter how it hurts
So don't fool again

He thinks the answer is cold and in his hand
He takes his medicine
The man takes another bullet
He's been fooled again

Uncross your arms
Take and throw 'em to the cure, say...
I do believe

Uncross your arms now
Take 'em too,and say...
I do believe

The lies tempt her she follows
Again she lets him in
She must believe to fill the hollow
She's been fooled again

Uncross your arms
Take and throw them to the cure, say...
I do believe

Uncross your arms now
Take 'em too,and say...
I do believe
Oh yeah, I do believe

Betting on the cure
It must get better than this
Betting on the cure
Yeah everyone's gotta have the sickness
Cause everyone seems to need the cure
Precious cure

Betting on the cure
Cause it must get better than this
Betting on the cure
Yeah everyone's gotta have the sickness
Cause everyone seems to need the cure
Precious cure

I do believe (repeat)

Betting on the cure
It must get better than this
Need to feel secure

It must get better than this
Betting on the cure
Everyone's gotta to have the sickness
Cause everyone seems to need the cure

Poor Twisted Me

Oh poor twisted me
Oh poor twisted me
I feast on sympathy
I chew on suffer
I chew on agony

Swallow whole the pain
Oh it's too good to be
All this misery
Is just for oh poor twisted me

Poor twisted me

Poor mistreated me
Poor mistreated me
I drown without a sea
Lungs fill with sorrow
Lungs fill with misery

Inhaling the deep dark blue
Oh woe is me
Such a burden to be
Poor mistreated me

To finally reach the shore
Survive the storm
Now you're bare and cold
The sea was warm
So warm
Your bathe your soul again
Bathe it again, and again, and again

To finally reach the shore
Survive the storm
Now you're bare and cold
The sea was warm
So warm, you bathe your soul again

Good to see my friend
Oh woe is me
Such a burden to be
Oh poor twisted me
Oh poor twisted me

Poor twisted me


Wasting My Hate

Good day, how do
And I send a smile to you
Don't waste, waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you

Ain't gonna waste my hate
Ain't gonna waste my hate on you
I think I'll keep it for myself

Ain't gonna give no more
Ain't got the time to help you score
I think it's time you pleased yourself
Yourself

Good day how do
And I send a smile to you
Don't waste
Waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you
Waste my hate on you

Think you're worthy now
Think enough to even raise the brow
And to laugh and tip that two pronged crown

I see my hands I see my feet
I feel that blood that pumps in me
Where the hell's my mind goin' now
Goin' now

Good day how do
And I send a smile to you
Don't waste
Waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you
Waste my hate on you
Think I'll keep it for myself

Ain't gonna waste my hate
But I'm so greedy when they say
Better to give than to recieve

Ain't gonna waste my hate, no, no
Ain't got time to waste my hate on you
I think I'll keep it all for myself
For myself

Good day how do
And I send a smile to you
Don't waste
Waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you
Waste my hate on you

Think I'll keep it for myself
Yeah

Hate!

Mama Said

Mama, she has taught me well
Told me when I was young
Son, your life's an open book
Don't close it 'fore its done

The brightest flame burns quickest
Is what I heard her say
A son's heart sewed to mother
But I must find my way

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still

Rebel my new last name
Wild blood in my veins
Apron strings around my neck
The mark that still remains

Left home at an early age
Of what I heard was wrong
I never asked forgiveness
But what is said is done

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still

Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness
I now take to my grave
Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness
I now take to my grave
So let this heart be still

Mama, now I'm coming home
I'm not all you wished of me
A mother's love for her son
Spoken, help me be

Well, I took your love for granted
And all the things you said to me
I need your arms to welcome me
But,a cold stone's all I see

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still

Let my heart go
Mama, let my heart go
You never let my heart go
So let this heart be still

Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness
I now take to my grave
Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness
I now take to my grave
So let this heart be still


Thorn Within

Forgive me father
For I have sinned
Find me guilty of the life I feel within

When I'm branded
This mark of shame
Should I look down disgraced
Or straight ahead
And know that you must blame

I am, I am the secret
I am, I am the sin
I am, I am the guilty
And I, I am the thorn within

Forgive me father
For I have sinned
Find me guilty when true guilt is from within

So point your fingers
Point right at me
For I am shadows
And will follow you
One and the same are we

I am, I am the secret
I am, I am the sin
I am, I am the guilty
And I, I am the thorn within

I do your time
I take your fall
I'm branded guilty
For us all

So point your fingers
Point right at me
For I am shadows
And will follow you
One and the same are we

I am, I am your secrets
I am, I am your sin
I am, I am your guilty
And I, I am the thorn within
I am the thorn within


Ronnie

Stories start
Quiet town
Small town boy
Big time frown
Never talks
Never plays
Different path
Lost his way

The streets are red
Red I'm afraid
There's no confetti
No parade
Nothing happens in this boring place
But oh my god how it all did change

Now they all pray
Blood stain wash away

He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way

I heard him
He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way
All things wash away
But blood stained the sun red today

I always said
Something wrong
With little strange
Ronnie Long
Never laughed
Never smiled
Talked alone for miles
And miles and miles

Gallow calls
Son I say
Keep your smile
And laugh all day
Think once again in this boring place
For little boys how they soon change

Now they all pray
Blood stain wash away

He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way

Yeah, I heard him
He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way
All things wash away
But blood stained the sun red today

(Spoken)
Yeah, well all the green things died
When Ronnie moved to this place
He said, "don't you dare ask,
why I'm cursed to wear this face"

Now we all know why
The children called him Ronnie Frown
When he pulled that gun from his pocket
They all fall down, down, down

He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way

Yeah, Yeah,I heard him
He screamed
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way
All things wash away
But blood stained the sun red today

That's right
All things wash away
And they all fall down
But blood stained the sun today

All things wash away
An yhey all fall down
But blood stained the sun today

The Outlaw Torn

And now I wait my whole lifetime
For you
And now I wait my whole lifetime
For you

I ride the dirt, I ride the tide
For you
I search the outside, search inside
For you

To take back what you left me
I know I'll always burn to be
The one seeks so I may find
And now I wait my whole lifetime

Outlaw of torn
Outlaw of torn
And I'm torn

So on I wait my whole lifetime
For you
So on I wait my whole lifetime
For you

The more I search the more my need
For you
The more I bless the more I bleed
For you

You make me smash the clock and feel
I'd rather die behind the wheel
Time was never on my side
So on I wait my whole lifetime

Outlaw of torn
Outlaw of torn
Outlaw of torn
And I'm torn

Hear me
And if I close my mind in fear
Please pry it open
See me
And if my face becomes sincere
Beware
Hold me
And when I start to come undone
Stich me together
Save me
And when you see me strut
Remind me of what left this outlaw torn

Hear me
And if I close my mind in fear
Please pry it open
See me
And if my face becomes sincere
Beware
Hold me
And when I start to come undone
Stich me together
And when you see me strut
Remind me of what left this outlaw torn
