02. What Doesn't Die

First in last out overthrown
It's been picked clean to the bone
And so hard to remember things
Like when we used to kill our kings

Crusading for hypocrisy
Under our nose the holy bleed
Crumbling under its own weight
Apologies if you relate

'Cause you cannot kill
What doesn't die
Live up to my promise
My full potential realized

Death lives right inside your pocket
Take him out and have a laugh
Go and piss your life away
Another ugly waste of clay

And up above there's no one home
Why don't you answer your phone?
Reminding me to learn that poem
First in last out overthrown

Because you cannot kill
What doesn't die
Live up to my promise
My full potential realized

You cannot kill
What doesn't die
Live up to my promise
My full potential realized

A stream of consciousness
Flows into a river of blood
Stem this tide of violence
As it rises like a flood

[Solo]

A stream of consciousness
Flows into a river of blood
Stem this tide of violence
As it rises like a flood

A stream of consciousness
Flows into a river of blood
Stem this tide of violence
As it rises like a flood

A stream of consciousness
Flows into a river of blood
What doesn't die
Stem this tide of violence
As it rises like a flood

A stream of consciousness
Flows into a river of blood
What doesn't die
Stem this tide of violence
As it rises like a flood

You cannot kill
What doesn't die
Live up to my promise
My full potential realized

You cannot kill
What doesn't die
Live up to my promise
My full potential realized


03. Superhero

When you praise my name I'll fulfill your expectation
Looking for an answer that'll dignify your prayers
What remains when your savior becomes human?
You feel the legend something sacred, you cant understand
Becomes bigger than the man

Pray for help, cry out, scream for me now
I'm not your superhero
Pray for help, cry, I'll scream for you now
I'm not your superhero

All my love and hate radiate and become equals
Untouchable enmity has always been my fate
Mine alone agony destined to suffer
Eternally my story never goes as planned
And it's bigger than the man

Pray for help, cry out, scream for me now
I'm not your superhero
Pray for help, cry, I'll scream for you now
I'm not your superhero

Once upon a time I would do anything
For anyone; at anytime
And all I asked for was your faith
Was that too much to ask?

There is no god there is no king
There is no saint of broken dreams
There's only you and truth and soul
The superhero is your own

There is no god there is no king
There is no saint of broken dreams
There's only you and truth and soul
The superhero is your own

Pray for help, cry out, scream for me now
I'm not your superhero
Pray for help, cry, I'll scream for you now
I'm not your superhero

Once upon a time I would do anything
For anyone; at anytime
And all I asked for was your faith
Was that too much to ask?
Was that too much to ask?
I'm not your superhero
Was that too much to ask?


04. Refused To Be Denied

Proud and free that's American to me
Symptomatically, and so basically
It's so definite, freedom is all of it
No humanity without restraint

Refuse to be denied refuse to compromise
Your ideology always a lie
It's jingoistic or nationalistic
Or whatever the hell you want to call it

With my raised fist
Never to be denied
I stand and resist again

Proud and free that's a human thing to me
Burning at the core and I'd go to war
Ain't gonna change my way of life
Twisted rhetoric, I won't subscribe

Refuse to be denied refuse to compromise
Your ideology always a lie
Imperialistic colonialist
Bandwagon patriot wake up to this

With my raised fist
Never to be denied
I stand and resist again

[Solo]

With my raised fist
Never to be denied
I stand and resist again

With my raised fist
With my raised fist
I stand and resist again
Denied, denied


05. Safe Home

I've been down this road once or twice before
Through the open door
I come falling through it
There's a sign post up ahead
Like a watershed
And it opens my eyes
Ways, for me to begin
To be born again
And knowing for the first time
Ways, all so differently
Shine for me to see
The better man that I am

I've been places in my head
Behind me worse than what's ahead
And on my path just like a dream
Takes me from the in-between
From out of nowhere you came strong as stone
And now I'll never have to be alone
What it is I know

You have always been my safe home
I walk, I run, I burn out into you
You have always been my safe home
My whole world has moved on

I know what I am and I'll always be
Your reality, is better than I could dream
All my fears turn from black to white
And I'd stand and fight
The whole world for you
Faith and destiny
I never did believe
My only god is love and
Faith, what I see in you
And I can hold it true
Like a weight in my hand

I've been places in my head
Behind me worse than what's ahead
And on my path just like a dream
Takes me from the in-between
From out of nowhere you came strong as stone
And now I'll never have to be alone
What it is I know

You have always been my safe home
I walk, I run, I burn out into you
You have always been my safe home
My whole world has moved on

I've been places in my head
I've been places in my head
I've been places in my, places in my
Places in my head

[Solo]

You have always been my safe home
I walk, I run, I burn out into you
You have always been my safe home
My whole world has moved on

You have always been my safe home
I walk, I run, I burn out into you
You have always been my safe home
My whole world


06. Anyplace But Here

Breath by breath it takes
Still you're gasping for air
Miles and miles you move
Into abyss you stare

Running form the plight
Mighty grip its hold
And that hunger's hanging on
But never be to the fold

With endurance
As the earth behind you burns
You can feel heat
Keep your will and never turn

Come on, come on, follow closely
Come on, come on, end this slavery
Come on, come on, where you're going
Any place but here

And you pray for more hope
So this will run its course
Every day you move
Handcuffs they lose their force

Abandon all you know
So destitution hides
United in despair
Still makes it harder to divide

With exhaustion
As the earth behind you melts
You can feel heat
But your need for living fails

Come on, come on, follow closely
Come on, come on, end this slavery
Come on, come on, where you're going
Any place but here

Come on, come on, follow closely
Come on, come on, end this slavery
Come on, come on, where you're going
Any place but here

A logical reason for being
Is quickly drifting away
People prove fiendishly greedy
Each time you try to believe

It's hard to be defiant
There's ways to kill the giant
Slaughtered by pins

[Solo]

Come on, come on, follow closely
Come on, come on, end this slavery
Come on, come on, where you're going
Any place but here

Come on, come on, follow closely
Come on, come on, end this slavery
Come on, come on, where you're going
Any place but here


07. Nobody Knows Anything

I've been choking on the air that you've been giving me
It's all a game to you, to me it's an atrocity
As you add another loop onto my noose
I lose all sense of what is abuse

'Cause it's always been a bone of contention
This game of what it is that I've done for you
I've given you everything for nothing in return
And I'm so tired of bleeding for the respect that I've earned

Because no, nobody knows, nobody knows
Because nobody knows anything

I don't know how much generosity that I can take
Until I leave a trail of bodies lying in my way
How many times do I lose my mind 'til I realize
Give me the high hat and you think that I should compromise?

'Cause it's always been a bone of contention
This game of what it is that I've done for you
I've given you everything for nothing in return
And I'm so tired of bleeding for the respect that I've earned

Because no, nobody knows, nobody knows
Because nobody knows anything
No, nobody knows, nobody knows
Because nobody knows anything

[Solo]

Because no, nobody knows, nobody knows
Because nobody knows anything
No, nobody knows, nobody knows
Because nobody knows anything


08. Strap It On

And my plate is full
And I feel the pull
And my time is spent
Searching for something that came and went

Take me back
Take me back to a golden time
From '75 to '79
And it makes it easy, so easy for me
Strap it on
Strap it on

Strap it on, on my old school
Strap it on, on my old school
I change by staying the same

And it grows inside
Metastasize
And my brain goes crazy
Sepia toned days are hazy

Take me back
Take me back to the heavy time
From '85 to '89
It makes it easy so easy for me
Strap it on
Strap it on

Strap it on, on my old school
Strap it on my old school
Strap, strap on my old school
Strap it on my old school
I change by staying the same

[Solo]

Strap it on, on my old school
Strap it on, on my old school
Strap, strap on my old school
Strap it on my old school
Take me, take me, take me back


09. Black Dahlia

Hard case
Fist full of brass
Double barrelled pistons
And a tank full of gas

He's a heavyweight
Enforcer inside
Like a man in the chair
He's gonna go for a ride

Break him
Take him down
Squeeze him
Watch him drown

Against lightning
The wind from his sails
Take on a man
Who's harder than a coffin nail

Priceless
The look on his face
If you look real close
You can see the expiration date

Break him
Take him down
Squeeze him
Watch him drown

Black Dahlia's in my head
Black Dahlia's in my head
Black Dahlia's in my head
Black Dahlia's in my head

Ice veined
Thousand yard stare
Breaking a man
Is like hunting for bear

And I'm loaded
Setting the trap
Tighten the noose
And bust a rat with my sap

Break him
Take him down
Squeeze him
Watch him drown

Black Dahlia's in my head
Black Dahlia's in my head
Black Dahlia's in my head
Black Dahlia's in my head

Black Dahlia's in my head
Confession's good for the soul
Black Dahlia's in my head
In this hunt I walk alone


10. Cadillac Rock Box

Oh, it feels so good to be here
Ass bet broke and I don't care
Yeah, so good to be clear
I can testify, listen

I can't fake and attraction to it
Magnetic, it pulls so hard
When two powerful forces collide and break down
Inside and break out at the speed of sound

Locked and loaded I can't hold it

Pick 'em up, set 'em up
Watch it all go down
Oh yeah
Driving in my Cadillac rock box

I am so alive, I learned how to let it go
And on the day that I die
I'll have no fear, listen

I can't fake and attraction to it
Magnetic, it pulls so hard
When two powerful forces collide and break down
Inside and break out at the speed of sound

Locked and loaded I can't hold it

Pick 'em up, set 'em up
Watch it all go down
Oh yeah
Driving in my Cadillac rock box

Stick 'em up, get 'em up
Drop it and throw down
Oh yeah
Hangin' in my Cadillac rock box

[Solo]

Pick 'em up, set 'em up
Watch it all go down
Oh yeah
Driving in my Cadillac rock box

Fill 'em up, shoot 'em
Sit before you fall down
Oh yeah
Bury me in my Cadillac rock box


11. Taking The Music Back

Your lies that took me where I've been
Your lies don't make me who I am
Your lies that left me scarred
And so fucking hard

Your lies that burn me deep inside
Your lies that helped to bleed me dry
Left on your own
Because your cover's blown

I am, taking the music back
I am, taking the music back
I am, taking the music back
I am, taking it back

Against your will I'm not a slave
Against the deal and you get paid
I won't throw you a rope
You pull the cigaro

Against it, you're the enemy
Against it, your philosophy
Shit thrown against the wall
You'll eat it all

I am, taking the music back
I am, taking the music back
I am, taking the music back
I am, taking it back

I am, taking the music back
I am, taking the music back
I am, taking the music back
I am, taking it back

I am, taking the music back
I am, taking the music back
I am, taking the music back
I am, I'm taking it


12. Crash

Hello World
Thought I knew you well
Hello World
Always hard to tell
When you're gonna take me there again
There you're gonna watch until the end


13. Think About An End

Wake up on fire every day
And I never say goodbye
Pre-determined destiny
I've never been afraid to die

Ever since I was a kid
I've seen things my own way, with my own eyes
With my hands I turn the screws
In my life I decide

You're bent on under the will
Of endless dogmatic restraints
I will rage against the machine
Spewing out blind faith

Think about an end you can live with
Think about an end I can give you
Think about an end that would satisfy

Think about an end you can live with
Think about an end I can give you
Think about an end

The only thing that's touched my soul
Ever in my life of love
Tangible and physical visible
Unlike your god above

You're bent on under the will
Of endless dogmatic restraints
I will rage against the machine
Spewing out blind faith

Think about an end you can live with
Think about an end I can give you
Think about an end that would satisfy

Think about an end you can live with
Think about an end I can give you
Think about an end

Where is all the mercy
On which your faith has been built
All I see is hatred
Caused by years of inbred guilt

Resurrecting genuflecting
Killing in the name
You disavow the right to choose
It's medievally insane

Your god is dead or doesn't care
Tell me which ones worse
An uncaring god or knowing
That your alone on this earth?

Wake up on fire every day
And I never say goodbye
Pre-determined destiny
I've never been afraid to die

You're bent on under the will
Of endless dogmatic restraints
I will scream

Think about an end you can live with
Think about an end I can give you
Think about an end that would satisfy

Think about an end you can live with
Think about an end I can give you
Think about an end

Think about an end
Think about an end
Think about an end
Think about an end


14. We've Come For You All

The mind can atrophy
Such mediocrity
Things aren't what they seem
Sometimes
And every waking dream
Repeating central theme
If we don't wake up do we die?

And when the best can be
Worse than what's usually
Found it's all between
The lines
Then patience starts to bleed
Increasing enmity
It's time to let the bullets fly

Developed all exposure
Revealing no composure
The gates are open wide
The wrecking ball is here
Your chest contains no treasure
The prisoners are loose
We've come for you all

Pay the expected fee
For the insanity
Now the reflection's deeply lined
All systems fail and seize
Break down and spill the grease
Aggressive tendencies designed

Developed all exposure
Revealing no composure
The gates are open wide
The wrecking ball is here
Your chest contains no treasure
The prisoners are loose
We've come for you all

[Solo]

And every element
Will force a consequence
It takes a slanted state of mind
Then patience starts to bleed
Increasing enmity
It's time to let the bullets fly

Developed all exposure
Revealing no composure
The gates are open wide
The wrecking ball is here
Your chest contains no treasure
The prisoners are loose
We've come for you all
Your chest contains no treasure
The prisoners are loose
We've come for you all


15. Safe Home

I've been down this road once or twice before
Through the open door
I come falling through it
There's a sign post up ahead
Like a watershed
And it opens my eyes
Ways, for me to begin
To be born again
And knowing for the first time
Ways, all so differently
Shine for me to see
The better man that I am

I've been places in my head
Behind me worse than what's ahead
And on my path just like a dream
Takes me from the in-between
From out of nowhere you came strong as stone
And now I'll never have to be alone
What it is I know

You have always been my safe home
I walk, I run, I burn out into you
You have always been my safe home
My whole world has moved on

I know what I am and I'll always be
Your reality, is better than I could dream
All my fears turn from black to white
And I'd stand and fight
The whole world for you
Faith and destiny
I never did believe
My only god is love and
Faith, what I see in you
And I can hold it true
Like a weight in my hand

I've been places in my head
Behind me worse than what's ahead
And on my path just like a dream
Takes me from the in-between
From out of nowhere you came strong as stone
And now I'll never have to be alone
What it is I know

You have always been my safe home
I walk, I run, I burn out into you
You have always been my safe home
My whole world has moved on

I've been places in my head
I've been places in my head
I've been places in my, places in my
Places in my head

You have always been my safe home
I walk, I run, I burn out into you
You have always been my safe home
My whole world has moved on

You have always been my safe home
I walk, I run, I burn out into you
You have always been my safe home
My whole world


16. We're A Happy Family

We're a happy family, we're a happy family
We're a happy family, me mom and daddy
We're a happy family, we're a happy family
We're a happy family, me mom and daddy

Sitting here in Queens, eating refried beans
We're in all the magazines, gulpin' down thorazines
We ain't got no friends, our troubles never end
No Christmas cards to send, daddy likes men

Daddy's telling lies, baby's eating flies
Mommy's on pills, baby's got the chills
I'm friends with the President, I'm friends with the Pope
We're all making a fortune selling Daddy's dope

Sitting here in Queens, eating refried beans
We're in all the magazines, gulpin' down thorazines
We ain't got no friends, our troubles never end
No Christmas cards to send, daddy likes men

We're a happy family, we're a happy family
We're a happy family, me mom and daddy
We're a happy family, we're a happy family
We're a happy family, me mom and daddy

We're a happy family, we're a happy family
We're a happy family, me mom and daddy
We're a happy family, we're a happy family
We're a happy family, me mom and daddy
