01. Crush

Now you see me, now you don't
Go before I am the goat
You get away with murder
Kill me when you're through
Do I have to give up me
To be loved by you
You get away with murder
What do I have to do
Do I have to give up me
To be loved by you

From the smallest taste I use
From the smallest taste I lose
Won't you crush on me

Pile your dead on top of me
Tape my eyes so I can't see

You get away with murder
Kill me when you're through
Do I have to give up me
To be loved by you
You get away with murder
What do I have to do
Do I have to give up me
To be loved by you

From the smallest taste I use
From the smallest taste I lose
Won't you crush on me

I've been waiting for today
I can't touch you when you're far away
Nothing makes me feel this way
Except hate but that fades away

From the smallest taste I use
From the smallest taste I lose

Won't you crush on me

I've been waiting for today
I can't touch you when you're far away
Nothing makes me feel this way
Except hate but that fades away


02. Catharsis

All these years I've been the hard man
All these years it's been so hard man
To live my life for someone else
In fear of being honest with myself
I perpetrated a lie

Juggling my life with one hand
Tied behind my back, trying to find
And it had always been mine
I perpetrated a lie

I'm in, I'm out, I'm in, I'm out
I'm in, I'm out, I'm in, I'm out
I'm breaking through the darkness

And it knocked me over
Into the light of an older soul
And I'll never die
Cause everything I am is in your eyes

Angels in my heart, Devils in my eyes
Devils in my eyes...
Angels in my heart, Devils in my eyes
Devils in my eyes...

And it knocked me over
Into the light of an older soul
And I'll never die
I'll live forever in your eyes

Crucify my inhibitions
The first born son he died for my sins
Nothing to worry about
And all these years I was the hard man
I always knew I'd find myself and prove
Because you told me the truth
It's all I wanted from you

I'm in, I'm out, I'm in, I'm out
I'm in, I'm out, I'm in, I'm out
I'm breaking through the darkness

And it knocked me over
Into the light of an older soul
And I'll never die
Cause everything I am is in your eyes

Angels in my heart, Devils in my eyes
Devils in my eyes...
Angels in my heart, Devils in my eyes
Devils in my eyes...
Angels in my heart, Devils in my,
Devils in my,
Devils in my,
Devils in my eyes...

And it knocked me over
Into the light of an older soul
And I'll never die
I'll live forever in your eyes

My cathartic dream, a primal scream, shedding my skin
Somewhere between light and dark I balanced what I am
And I remember everything, we said we'd find a way
Laugh and cry, love and hate, ain't no weak link this bond can't break
I pull it out there, it comes back
I pull it out there, it comes back
I pull it out there, it comes back
I pull it out there, it comes back

Angels in my heart, Devils in my eyes
Devils in my eyes...
Angels in my heart, Devils in my eyes
Devils in my eyes...
Angels in my heart, Devils in my,
Devils in my,
Devils in my,
Devils in my eyes...

And it knocked me over
Into the light of an older soul
And I'll never die
I'll live forever in your eyes
I'll never die, I'll never die
I'll never die, I'll never die
I'll never die, I'll never die
I'll never die, I'll never die


03. Inside Out

I thought I knew what provocation was
I thought I knew what provocation was
I've eaten from the insane root that imprisons reason

It's in my stomach like fire, like cancer
Like a knife I've been gunshot
I gotta let it go

Goddamn, nowhere place to be
Dying deep inside of me
Always standing on the inside looking out
Can't break a heart so strong with pride
It's more than just being alive
I broke the rule with you, I'm out

My only antidote to mental suffering
Is physical pain
I've eaten from the insane root that imprisons reason

It's in my stomach like fire
It's in my stomach like cancer
It's in my stomach like a knife
I've been gunshot
I gotta let it go

Goddamn, nowhere place to be
Dying deep inside of me
Always standing on the inside looking out
Can't break a heart so strong with pride
It's more than just being alive
I broke the rule with you, I'm out

Goddamn, nowhere place to be
Dying deep inside of me
Always standing on the inside looking out
Can't break a heart so strong with pride
It's more than just being alive
I broke the rule with you, I'm out, out, out

Goddamn, nowhere place to be
Dying deep inside of me
Always standing on the inside looking out
Can't break a heart so strong with pride
It's more than just being alive
I broke the rule with you, I'm out

Goddamn, nowhere place to be
Dying deep inside of me
Always standing on the inside looking out
Can't break a heart so strong with pride
It's more than just being alive
I broke the rule with you, I'm out, out, out, out, OUT!!


04. Piss & Vinegar

It was a day to remember
Twice as hard as long
That was the day that I convinced myself
That I found my god

I tip my cap and I step up
I fix myself to the right
I move right into the firing zone
And scream "drink or fight"
It's just a matter of respect
Or is that something I missed
This ain't no peace train that you're jumping on
So shake my hand and shake it strong
And everybody come along

(am I) Long
(am I) Strong
(am I) Everybody come along
(am I) Long
(am I) Strong
(am I) Everybody come along

Sometimes I can't stop the shaking
At least I know I'm not dead
I don't remember whose blood this is
I've got a hammer inside my head

I get up, I get put down
And I don't even try
I've burned a bridge, I've burned a whole town
Cause I'm fortified
I tell the truth or just a gilded lie
And then I charge like a bull with his balls tied
This ain't no peace train that you're jumping on
So shake my hand and shake it strong
And everybody come along

(am I) Long
(am I) Strong
(am I) Everybody come along
(am I) Long
(am I) Strong
(am I) Everybody come along

A heavy dose of reality
With a side of piss and vinegar
A free drink at the bar and you'll take it

So shake my hand and shake it strong
And everybody come along

(am I) Long
(am I) Strong
(am I) Everybody come along
(am I) Long
(am I) Strong
(am I) Everybody come along

A heavy dose of reality
With a side of piss and vinegar
A swift kick in the ass and you'll take it
Take it


05. 604

Can't stop eating
Can't stop eating
Can't stop eating
She's so fat
Can't stop eating
Can't stop eating
Can't stop eating
She's so fat
Can't stop eating
Can't stop eating
Can't stop eating
She's so fat

6...0...4... Katrina!

Can't stop eating
Can't stop eating
Can't stop eating
She's so fat


06. Toast

Swimming on the surface
It's a hell of a lot safer up here
Ain't prepared to dive
And uncover all my darkest fears
This ain't no covert operation
I don't have that much concentration

Staring at the clock
And my patience is wearing thin
One more down the gullet
Keeps me from jumping out of my skin
This ain't no covert operation
I'm lost in this fog of contradiction

I toast to the extras
I drink to them cause they don't talk too much
They fill up space and entertain
And when I cut em loose, they don't make a fuss
They all add up to zero in my mind
They're just here to cure the boredom for the night

Now sometimes this leaves me feeling hollow
That's when I take refuge in my pillow
This ain't no covert operation
I'm not even ready for confession

I toast to the extras
I drink to them cause they don't talk too much
They fill up space and entertain
And when I cut em loose, they don't make a fuss
They all add up to zero in my mind
They're just here to cure the boredom for the night

That's right


07. Born Again Idiot

Why do I explain myself when everyone's an idiot but me?
I think some people need, I think some people need,
Killing for stupidity and I'll be born again

Kicking and screaming and dragged back into a life
Kicking and screaming and dragged back into a life
Like ten pounds in a nine pound bag
Still I come back to give you something that you never had

Idiot rules, I never fight I only win
Idiot rules, idiot rules
Idiot rules, and I didn't make them
Idiot rules, I never bend, I only break them

Finish my smoke, down my drink, wipe my mouth and I just walk away
I think some people need, I think some people need,
Killing for stupidity and I'll be born again

Kicking and screaming and dragged back into a life
Kicking and screaming and dragged back into a life
Like ten pounds in a nine pound bag
Still I come back to give you something that you never had

Idiot rules, I never fight I only win
Idiot rules, idiot rules
Idiot rules, and I didn't make them
Idiot rules, I never bend, I only break them

What's the chance of finding something real and make it last
For that I'd carry all my bags and leave them in the past
Because I spend my life fixing mistakes that left me scarred
And when I stand and meet my maker, I'll be born again hard

Why do I explain myself when everyone's an idiot but me?
I think some people need, I think some people need,
Killing for stupidity and I'll be born again

Idiot rules, I never fight I only win
Idiot rules, idiot rules
Idiot rules, and I didn't make them
Idiot rules, idiot rules
Idiot rules, I never fight I only win
Idiot rules, idiot rules
Idiot rules, don't judge me by my sins
Idiot rules, I never bend, I only break them


08. Killing Box

I have always been an experiment in terror
At least I can only kill you once
Standing aloof when I made up my mind
Reaching, reaching, why it's better to be blunt

Your walking point through my minefield
You gotta get out (get out)
Your on point in my minefield
Forever waiting for a roadmap

Speak
Speak
Speak
Say something
Speak
Speak
Speak
Answer me

I left you in a killing box
I left you in a killing box
I left you in a killing box
I left you in a killing box

Sketchy's not a name you can pin on me
I'll start a revolt with my honesty
A piece of you burns every time you lie
So let's start a war, just to see how many die

Your walking point through my minefield
You gotta get out (get out)
Your on point in my minefield
Forever waiting for a roadmap

Speak
Speak
Speak
Say something
Speak
Speak
Speak
Answer me

I left you in a killing box


09. Harm's Way

Here comes the biggest asshole that the whole world's ever seen
Watch as things turn to something I never, I never meant to be
Call it a side effect of my arrested development
Here with you I'm trapped, I'm trapped, out of my element

I tear through all this wreckage
Wreckage you left when you dropped the bomb
Is there something worth saving
Or do I act, I act like nothing's wrong
The lesser of two evils gives me, gives me nothing at all

Lust and madness, murder and mayhem
My whole life's been about playing
It's all so surreal
Maybe that's why I touch but can't feel

Sittin' pretty, as I sit up straight
Trying to find means to an end I move into harms way
I move into harms way

I see my face in the mirror
I feel my feet but I can't seem to walk in my shoes
When it hurts I feel closer to you
Closer than you ever knew
And the bottom line is knowing
I will die and the worms will eat me
The bottom line is knowing
Ain't no one else I can be

Lust and madness, murder and mayhem
My whole life's been about playing
It's all so surreal
Maybe that's why I touch but can't feel

Sittin' pretty, as I sit up straight
Trying to find means to an end I move into harms way
Running steady, smile on my face
Trying to find means to an end I move into harms way
I move into harms way

Sittin' pretty as I, running steady as I, sittin' pretty as I sit up straight
Running steady, smile on my face
Trying to find means to an end I move into harms way
I move into harms way


10. Hog Tied

I have something I can reveal
I get off on laughing
It's like the biggest orgasm
If you like I'll share it with you

When you give up yourself, you do it peacefully
Then you feel no plight and you think you're free
Give up yourself, give up yourself
There goes your chivalry

From on top of the world, I'll throw you down a rope
From on top of the world, I'll throw you down a rope

Hog tied to this life, I'm strapped up tight
And I won't be no slave

I can't wait to get you back
I need you back in my clutches
If it takes a thousand punches
By the end you'll be in stitches

When you give up yourself, you do it peacefully
Then you feel no plight and you think you're free
Give up yourself, give up yourself
There goes your chivalry

From on top of the world, I'll throw you down a rope
From on top of the world, I'll throw you down a rope
Climb up if the noose ain't tied
From on top of the world, I'll throw you down a rope
From on top of the world, I'll throw you down a rope
Climb up if the noose ain't tied

It won't disturb you, it's here to serve you
Unlock the doubt, you'll find it's out, your rosetta stone
Or you'll cut the line, and stifle time
Slash your wrist and kiss your crippled bones

When you give up yourself, you do it peacefully
Then you feel no plight and you think you're free
Give up yourself, give up yourself
There goes your chivalry

From on top of the world, I'll throw you down a rope
From on top of the world, I'll throw you down a rope
Climb up if the noose ain't tied
From on top of the world, I'll throw you down a rope
From on top of the world, I'll throw you down a rope
Climb up if the noose ain't tied


11. Big Fat

Looming large like a favorite son
One more time comes my obsession
Like a mountain stream that ends in mud
I'm wading in shit waiting for the flood
Sinking

You did, you did, you did, you did
Left me hating
You did, you did, you did, you did
Contemplating

I'm drinking strength for comic relief
While I'm growing super weak in the knees
You asked me can I deliver
Like a monster crossing the Hudson River
Stomping

You did, you did, you did, you did
Left me waning
You did, you did, you did, you did
Slowly draining
Feet of clay that are stuck to the floor
You did, you did, you did, you did
And with vanity you want more

Big fat kill
Carrying the weight of the world
Carrying the weight of the world
Carrying the weight of the world
In my hands
Carrying the weight of the world

I'm biting my tongue so much it hurts
But at the same time I'm at a loss for words
The things I've seen should've left me blind
So it makes me happy that I'm losing my mind
Laughing

You did, you did, you did, you did
Left me waning
You did, you did, you did, you did
Slowly draining
Feet of clay that are stuck to the floor
You did, you did, you did, you did
And with vanity you want more

Big fat kill
Carrying the weight of the world
Carrying the weight of the world
Carrying the weight of the world
In my hands
Carrying the weight of the world
Carrying the weight of the world
Carrying the weight of the world
Carrying the weight of the world
In my hands
Carrying the weight of the world

Carrying the weight of the world
Carrying the weight of the world
Carrying the weight of the world
In my hands
Carrying the weight of the world
Carrying the weight of the world
Carrying the weight of the world
Carrying the weight of the world
In my hands
Carrying the weight of the world

You asked me can I deliver
Like a monster crossing the Hudson River
Carrying the weight of the world
In my hands
Carrying the weight of the world

The things I've seen should've left me blind
So it makes me happy that I'm losing my mind


12. Cupajoe

I really need a cup of coffee, go get me a cupajoe
I really need a cup of coffee, go get me a cupajoe
I really need a cup of coffee, go get me a cupajoe
I really need a cup of coffee, go get me a cupajoe
Cupajoe, Cupajoe, Cupajoe, Cupajoe, Cupajoe,
Cupajoe, Cupajoe, Cupajoe, Cupajoe, Cupajoe,
Black and strong! Black and strong!

I really need a cup of coffee, go get me a cupajoe
I really need a cup of coffee, go get me a cupajoe
I really need a cup of coffee, go get me a cupajoe
I really need a cup of coffee, go get me a cupajoe
Cupajoe, Cupajoe, Cupajoe, Cupajoe, Cupajoe,
Cupajoe, Cupajoe, Cupajoe, Cupajoe, Cupajoe,
Black and strong! Black and strong!


13. Alpha Male

You should be happy
You should be happy
You should be really happy
I saved your life today
I didn't kill you
Although I meant to
You should be happy
Now go and put your toys away

It's the pecking order, back of the line
Pecking order, back of the line
Pecking order, back of the line
Climb up to the top, jump off and take a nose dive

Another societal breakdown
Another societal breakdown

What did you just say
What did you just say
You said something
Something that I already said
I smell like both of us
You smell like both of us
Revel in our sated lust
Open your eyes and watch me bust

It's the pecking order, back of the line
Pecking order, back of the line
Pecking order, back of the line
Climb up to the top, jump off and do a face plant

Another societal breakdown
Another societal breakdown

Another societal breakdown
And I don't need it around, I'm the king of the town

What did you do to me
I gotta get another hit off your energy
I'm cruising in neutral, you came into my life
And bam, kicked it up a big notch

What did you do to me, what did you do to me
I gotta get another hit off your energy
I dropped in from the top
Took off and carved a big slice

Another societal breakdown
Another societal breakdown
Another societal breakdown
And I don't need it around, I'm the king of the...


14. Stealing From A Thief

Don't want a life like my parents had
Don't want a life like my rich friends have
Don't want to live by association
Don't want to live the great maybe
I want a life, not a name online
I want to live it in real time
I want a life just so I can be
I never asked what was in it for me
I never asked what was in it for me

Stealing from a thief
My humanity
I know my name, I know my pain
I know my frequency
Stealing from a thief
Dancing with the beast
I know my name, I know my pain
I know my frequency

As a kid I'd play make believe
As a man I play make believe
As a kid I'd do anything
As a man I do everything

I live my centered and humane
I live my life like a man insane
I live my life just so I can be
I never asked what was in it for me
I never asked what was in it for me

Stealing from a thief
My humanity
I know my name, I know my pain
I know my frequency
Stealing from a thief
Dancing with the beast
I know my name, I know my pain
I know my frequency

I get up, I get up, I get up and go
I grab a hold and reach way down
To find something that I really believe
I don't need to console myself
If I don't like what I see

I never asked what was in it for me

Stealing from a thief
My humanity
I know my name, I know my pain
I know my frequency
Stealing from a thief
Dancing with the beast
I know my name, I know my pain
I know my frequency


15. Pieces

The sun is shining off his face again
Another day to reflect, I hope you understand

Looking for the sign that's let's me know
That you're fine
That you finally just found your way back home

Feel you within, feel you everywhere
You'll path the sky, will get me everywhere

So take me some place, where I will always know
That you're fine
That you finally just, found your way back home

Who's to tell me, I have to let it go
I need to say this, have to let you know
I will be here waiting for our souls to meet
I will be here waiting for your call to me

Anthony, I know you're home
Right beside me, all alone
Anthony, I have so much to say
In my heart, you will always remain
I'll never be alone...

Maybe I'm blind, maybe I don't wanna see
I distinct this fight won't play for me
Let us just think that I will, I think I know
That you're fine
That you finally just, found your way back home

I question my faith, I question everything
I need to know if this is all there is
So take me someplace where I will always know
That you're fine
That you finally just, found your way back home

Who's to tell me, I have to let it go
I need to say this, have to let you know
I will be here waiting for our souls to meet
I will be here waiting for your call to me

Anthony, I know you're home
Right beside me, all alone

It will always light your day

And never be alone..
And never be alone...
And never be alone....
And never be alone.....
