Ain't My Bitch
 
Outta my way, outta my day
Outta your mind and into mine
Into no one, into no one
Into your step but outta time

Head strong, what's wrong
I've already heard this song
 
Before... you arrived
But now it's time
To kiss your ass good-bye
Draggin me down, why you around
So useless
It ain't my fall, it ain't my call
It ain't my bitch
  
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 to hell again
 
Stand tall, can't fall
Never even bend at all
Before... you arrived
But now it's time
To kiss your ass good-bye
 
Draggin me down, why you around
So useless
It ain't my fall, it ain't my call
It ain't my bitch
 
No way but down, why you around?
 
No foolin'
It ain't my smile, it ain't my style
It ain't my bitch

Ain't mine, your kind
Your steepin outta time
Ain't mine, your kind
Your steppin outta time

Draggin me down, why you around?
No foolin'
It ain't my fall, it ain't my call
It ain't my...

Bitch... you ain't mine


 

2 x 4
 
I'm gonna make you, shake you, take you
I'm gonna be the one who breaks you
Put the screws to ya my way
Yeah, come on come on, come, make my day

Got some hell at pay, I steal your thunder
The joy of violent movements pulls you under
Bite the bullet well hard
Yeah, but I die harder, so go too far
 
Friction, fusion
Retribution
I can't hear ya talk ta me
I can't hear ya so talk ta me
I can't hear ya are you talkin' ta me
I can't hear ya are you talkin' ta me
I can't hear ya time ta meet my lord
I can't hear ya talk ta 2x4

I'm gonna make you, shake you, take you
I'm gonna be the one who breaks you
Put the screws to ya my way
Yeah, come on come on, come, make and my day
  
Friction, fusion
Retribution
I can't hear ya talk ta me
I can't hear ya so talk to me
I can't hear ya are you talkin' ta me
I can't hear ya are you talking ta me
I can't hear ya time ta meet my lord
I can't hear ya talk ta 2x4



The House that Jack Built

Open door 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 closed again
Well on my way, but on my way to where I've been
It follows me as it takes me in its fog
I twist away as I give this world the nod
 
Open door 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 closed 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 walk, 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 walk, 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 
 
Open door as I walk inside
Swallow me so the pain subsides
And I shake as I take it 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 tilts
As I am...
 
Open my eyes
It swallows me
Is that you there
I twist 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
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(until it sleeps)(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 you 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 (x5)
  
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 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 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

And 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 crumbled
And you've left with just a name 

Where's your crown King nothing?

Hard and cold
Bought and sold
A heart hard as gold
Are you satisfied?

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

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

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

Where's your crown King Nothing?

I wish I may
I wish I might
Have this wish I wish tonight

I want the 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

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

Where's your crown King Nothing?

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

Where's your crown King 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 ya feel your name?
Can't you hear your babies crying?
 
Mama they try and break me
Still they try and break me
 
'Scuze me while I tend to how I 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've made
For years can't hold or feel
No, I'm not all me
So please excuse me
While I tend to how I feel

But now the dreams and waking screams
That ever last the night
So build the wall, behind the crawl
And hide until it's light
So can you hear your babies cryin' now?

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

But now the dreams and waking screams
That ever last the night
So build the wall, behind the crawl
And hide until it's light
So can you hear your babies cryin' now?

Mama they try and break me



Bleeding Me

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

I'm pushin' my stay
I'm pushin' my stay to something
I'm pushin' my stay to 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

Caught under wheels roll
I take the leech 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
Caught under wheel's roll
The bleeding of me

Caught under wheels roll
I take the leech 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
Caught under wheel's roll
The bleeding of me

I am the beast that feeds the beast
I am the blood, I am the release
Come make me pure
Bleed me a cure

I'm caught under

Caught under wheels roll
I take the leech 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
Caught under wheel's roll
The bleeding of me

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

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



Cure

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 take another bullet
He's been fooled again

Uncross your arms and take
And throw them to the cure, say...
I do believe
Uncross your arms now
Take 'em to it, say...
I do believe

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

And throw them to the cure, say...
I do believe
Uncross your arms now
Take 'em to it, say...
I do believe

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

I do believe

Betting on the cure
Yeah, it must be better than this
Need to feel secure
Yeah, it's gonna better than this
It must be better than this
Betting on the cure

Yeah, everyone's got to have the sickness
'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
I chew on suffer, I chew on agony
Swallow whole the pain
Oh it's too good to be
That all this misery
Is just for oh poor twisted me
 
Poor mistreated me
Poor mistreated me
I drown without a sea
Lung fills with sorrow, lungs fill with misery
Inhaling the deep dark blue
Oh woah is me
Such a burden to be
The poor mistreated me
 
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 feel my friend
Oh woah is me
Such a burden to be
Oh 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 ya pleased 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

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 beat
But where the hell's my mind 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
Ain't gonna waste my hate

But I'm so greedy when they say
(It's) better to give than to receive

Ain't gonna waste my hate
No, no ain't got time to waste my hate on you
Yea, I think I'm gonna keep it all 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

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 before it's done
The brightest flame burns quickest
Is what I heard they say
A son's heart's owned to mother
But I must find my way
 
Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama let your 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 ask forgiveness
For what I said is done
 
Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama let your heart go
Or let this heart be still
 
[Chorus:]
 
Never I ask you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness
And now take to my grave
Never I ask you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness
And 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
But a mother's love for her son
Unspoken, hear me be
Yeah 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 your 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
 
[Chorus]



Thorn Within

Forgive me father
For I have sinned
Find me guilty of the life I feel within
And when I'm branded
This mark of shame
Should I look down disgraced
Or straight ahead
And know that you must blame

[Chorus:]

I am the secret
I am the sin
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 me
One and the same are we

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]


 
Ronnie

Story starts, quiet town
Small town boy, big time frown
Never talks, never plays
Different path, lost his way
 
Then streets of red, red I'm afraid
No confetti, no parade
Nothing happens in this boring place
But oh my god, how that all did change
Now they all pray
Blood stains wash away

[Chorus:]

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, somethin' wrong
With little strange Ronnie Long
Never laughed, never smile
Talked alone, 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 the soon change
Now they all pray
Blood stains wash away

[Chorus]

Yeah, well all the green things die
When Ronnie go to the place
He said, "Don't you dare ask why
I'm cursed to wear this name"

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

[Chorus]



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 who seeks so I may find
And now I wait my whole lifetime
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
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
Stitch me together
Save me
And when you see me strut
Remind me of what left this outlaw torn
