Ain't my Bitch

Out of my way.
Out of my day.
Out of your mind and into mine.
It's no more.
It's not born.
Into your step but out of time .

Head strong.
What's wrong.
I've already heard this song before.
You've arrived, but now it's time to kiss your ass good-bye.


Dragging me down.
While you were round.
So useless.
It ain't my fault.
It ain't my call.
It ain't my bitch.
Ain't my bitch .

Down on the sun.
Down on your fun.
Down and out where the hell you've been .

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

Stand tall.
They fall.
Never even meant it all before.
You've arrived, but now it's time to kiss your ass good-bye.


Dragging me down.
While you were round.
So useless.
It ain't my fault.
It ain't my call.
It ain't my bitch .

Out of my way.
Out of my day.
Out of your mind and into mine.
It's no more.
It's not born.
Into your step but out of time .

Head Strong.
What's wrong.
I've already heard this song before.
You've arrived, but now it's time to kiss your ass good-bye.


Dragging me down.
While you were round.
So useless.
It ain't my fault.
It ain't my call.
It ain't my bitch .

No way but down.
While you were round.
No foolin'.
It ain't my smile.
It ain't my style.
It ain't my bitch .

Ain't mine.
Your kind.
Your stepin' out of time .

Dragging me down.
While you were round.
No foolin'.
It ain't my fault.
It ain't my call.
It ain't my bitch.
Ain't my.

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.
On my way to where I graze.
It swallows me.
As it takes me in his home.
I twist away.
As I kill this world .

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 again.
Is that the moon.
Or just a light that lights this deadend street?.
Is that you there.
Or just another demon that I meet? .

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

The higher you walk.
The farther you fall.
The longer the walk.
The farther you crawl.
My body my temple.
This temple it tells.
"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 walk.
The farther you fall.
The longer the walk.
The farther you crawl.
My body my temple.
This temple it tells.
"Yes this is the house t.
hat Jack built" .

The higher you walk.
The farther you fall.
The longer the walk.
The farther you crawl.
My body my temple.
This temple it tells.
"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, pour me out.
These things inside they scream and shout.
And the pain still hates me.
So hold me until it sleeps .

Just like a curse, just like a 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 choosen 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 .

I don't want it.....NO .

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... .

So tear me open, but beware.
The pain's inside without a care.
And the dirt still stains me.
So wash me til I'm clean .

I'll Tear me open, make you gone.
No longer will you hurt anyone.
And the hate still shakes me.
So hold me until it sleeps.
Until it sleeps.
Until it sleeps.
Until it sleeps.


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).
Wish I may, 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 may 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?.
Where's your crown? .

Oh, You're just nothing.
Where's your crown King Nothing?.
Oh, you're just nothing.
Absolutely nothing.
Off to never, never land.


Hero of the Day

The window burns to light the way back home.
A light that warms no matter where they go.
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 .

Excuse me while I tender how I feel.
These things return to me that still seem real.
Now deservingly this easy chair.
But the rocking starts the wheels of dismay .

Don't want your hate.
But the fist I make.
For you still no fear.
No not on me.
So please excuse me while I tell them how I feel .

But now the dreams and.
And waking screams.
They everlast the night.
So build a wall.
Behind it crawl.
And hide until it's light.
So can you hear your babies crying now? .

Still the window burns.
Time s.
o slowly turns.
And someone there is sighing.
Keepers of the flames.
Did you hear your name?.
Did you hear your babies crying? .

But now the dreams and.
And now the dreams end.
They 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 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.

Caught under wheels roll.

Can't stop to save my soul.
I take the leech that's bleeding me.
I'm bleeding me.
I can't take it.

With somethin' 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 them to the cure, say....
I do believe .

Uncross your arms now.
Take them to I say....
I do believe.
Yeah, I do believe .

The lie is tempted and she follows.
Again she hits him in.
She must believe to feel 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 them to I 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 to have the sickness.
Cause everyone seems to need the cure.
Precious cure .

Cause everyone seems to need the cure.
I do believe.


Poor twisted Me

Oh poor twisted me.
Oh poor twisted me.
I feast on sympathy.

And 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.
I'm filled with sorrow.
Once filled with misery.
And hated the deep dark blue.
Such a burden to bear.
Poor mistreated me .

Finally reached the shore.
Survival's gone.
Now your feeling cold ever since he was born.
Your pain is so over you .

Where the hell's my mind gone now.
Get gone now .

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".
That's what I heard her say.
A son's heart owed to mother.
But I must find my way .

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

Rebel, mind your 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.
Let this heart be still .

Never I ask of you.
But never I gave.
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave.
Never I ask of you.
But never I gave.
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll 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.
I took your love for granted.
Not a thing you said to me.
I needed 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.
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 that I'll take to my grave.
Never I ask of you.
But never I gave.
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave.
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.
So I look down disgraced for saying I know that you must feel .

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 with true guilt that's from within .

So point your fingers.
Point right at me.
For I am shadows and will follow you whatever see my way .

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 a soul .

So point your fingers.
Point right at me.
For I am shadows and will follow you whatever see my way .

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 taught.
Quiet town.
Small time for big time crowd.
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 dismay.
s.
And they all pray.
Blood stain wash away .

He said.
"Lost my way.
This bloody day.
Lost my way" .

I heard it.
He said.
"Lost my way.
This bloody day.
Lost my way".
Oh please wash away.
But blood stains the sun red today .

I always said.
Something wrong.
Little strange.
All day long.
Never laugh.
Never smile.
Walked alone for miles and miles and miles .

Yellow comes.
Sun I say.
Keep your smile and laugh all day.
He falls again in this foreign place.
For little boys how they do chase.
And they all pray.
Blood stain wash away .

He said.
"Lost my way.
This bloody day.
Lost my way" .

I heard it.
He said.
"Lost my way.
This bloody day.
Lost my way".
Oh please wash away.
But blood stains 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".
I 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" .

I heard it.
He screamed.
"Lost my way.
This bloody day.
Lost my way".
Oh please wash away.
But blood stains the sun red today .

All things wash away.
They all fall down.
But blood stains the sun today .

All things wash away.
They all fall down.
But blood stains the sun today.


The outlaw Torn

You know 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.
No one seeks so I may find.
And now I wait my whole lifetime.
My whole lifetime .

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 blast 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.
My whole lifetime .

And I'm torn.
And if I close my mind in fear.
Please pry it open.
And if my face becomes sincere.
Beware.
And when I start to come undone.
Stitch me together.
And when you see me stretched remind me of what left this outlaw.
torn .

And if I close my mind in fear.
Please pry it open.
And if my face becomes sincere.
Beware.
And when I start to come undone.
Stitch me together.
