01. Fish Out Of Water

Music & lyrics by Mudvayne
Lie!!!
I'm a fish out of water
(I'm a fish out of water)
Kill me and choke on the bones
(Kill me and choke on the bones)
Nothing seems to matter anymore
Gotta get back to the reason
Gotta get back to the hole

Someone throw me an anchor
I've gotta drown this disease
(I've gotta drown this disease)
No one seems to matter anymore
Gotta get back to the meaning
Gotta get back the score

Buy my soul so you can sell me!
I don't need this
I don't need you

Trust your lies!
Then you betray me!
I don't want this
I don't want you

Up the creek with no paddle
(Up the creek with no paddle)
Through the ears of a board
No one seems to care at all anymore
Gotta get back to the evening
Gotta make back something more

Let me tell you a secret
(Let me tell you a secret)
So you can tell it or leave
No one holds to their honesty anymore
Gotta get back to the stealing
Gotta get back from the whore

Buy my soul so you can sell me!
I don't need this
I don't need you
Trust your lies!
Then you betray me!
I don't want this
I don't want!
You...

I don't want you
Who do you wanna be?
The summit of integrity
On the bottom of the filth
The dark hollow me

All these falling angels
Skeletons of what they once were
Hanging in the closet for the world to see
And now they're fallen angels
Faced by demons on their judgment
Hanging from the gallows
For us all to see!!!

Nobody told me!
Nobody forewarned!
Nobody told me!
Nobody forewarned!

Buy! (Buy!!!)
My soul! (My soul!!!)
So you can sell me!

I don't need this
I don't need you
Trust! (Trust!!!)
Your lies! (Your lies!!!)
Then you betray me!
I don't want this!
I don't want you!


02. Have It Your Way

Music & lyrics by Mudvayne
What we're you thinking?
What was going on inside your head?
Tell me we're you drinking?
Or just plain insane?
How we're you feeling?
With another couple thousand dead
Or we're you lying?
Just playing games

Placing your bet
Russian roulette
Well on your way
To ending our days

You'll leave us all behind
Broken with precision
Blind leading the blind
Have it your way
You've left us all behind
Riddled with deception
Pepper us with lime
Have it your way

Was it for your father?
Did you get a little pat on the head?
That's the way to go boy
Clean up his mess

Placing your bet
Russian roulette
Your on your way
To ending our days

You'll leave us all behind
Broken with precision
Blind leading the blind
Have it your way
You've left us all behind
Riddled with deception
Pepper us with lye
Have it your way

Welcome to the new way
The new world order part two
But I'll be damned if they
Would ever die for you
The world is crashing down
All around us, all around you
The world is falling down
Have it your way, we have nothing to say

You'll leave us all behind
Broken with precision
Blind leading the blind
Have it your way
You've left us all behind
Riddled with deception
Pepper us with lye
Have it your way

Bombs, bullets and blood
The things that we don't see
The things that we can't touch
Nightmares are reality
The things that we don't see
On the T.V.

Pledge your allegiance
To the bombs, bullets and blood
Pledge your allegiance
To the bombs, bullets and blood


03. A New Game

Music & lyrics by Mudvayne
Hunger, inside me
That door is rising, to quench is to kill
Lusting, enemy
But you don't know me, stand against your will
To satisfy me, pick my victim
Spells his name (those poor little girls)
So charming, say all the right things
Just come with me (Let's go for a ride)

Trust me, believe me, don't be so deceiving
God help me, and save me, from my lust and beatings

Lest we play (lest we play)
A new game

The hunter, within me
That's always searching, thirst for the kill
Abducted, take away
Thirst for the patience, of a thousand men
Fuel my eyes, locked on target
The covert men (You never had a chance)
Don't be alarmed, want some candy
Just ride over here (now get inside)

Trust me, believe me, don't be so deceiving
God help me, restrain me, from my lust and beatings

Lest we play (lest we play)
A new...

I just wanna play (I just wanna play)
I just wanna play a game
A new game

You meant everything to me
But now your time has come
Another broken doll today
Now your time has come
You meant everything to me
But now your time has come
Another broken doll today
Now your time has come

(Come here... come here
Want some candy? Let's take a ride
Let's take a ride...)

I just wanna play
I just wanna play a game
One that you never played before
One that you'll never play again I'm sure

I just wanna play
I just wanna play a game
One that you never played before
One that you'll never play again I'm sure

I just wanna play
I just wanna play a game
One that you never played before
One that you'll never play again I'm sure

I just wanna play
I just wanna play a game
One that you never played before
One that you'll never play again I'm sure

I just wanna play
I just wanna play a game
One that you never played before
One that you'll never play again I'm sure


04. Dull Boy

Music & lyrics by Mudvayne
All work and no play makes me a dull boy...
All work and no play makes me a dull boy...
All work and no play makes me a dull boy...
ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES ME A DULL BOY!

Live in a secret
Live in a lie
Live in a dark hole beneath the black sky
Live like a martyr and draw my last breath
Feel like an old man with a knife in my chest

Live like a transient
Live like a thief
Hide in a closet, grinding my teeth
Sit in a small room with the walls closing in
Open the shutters but everything's still dim

Payback
For all the things
I've done in my past

Payback
For everything
There are no take backs

[Chorus]

I'm not the reason
It's not my fault
It's not my problem
I'm not the cause

I'm not your scapegoat
I'm not your god
I'm not your martyr
I'd leave you all

I'm not the reason - (I'm not your scapegoat)
It's not my fault - (I'm not your god)
It's not my problem - (I'm not your martyr)
I'm not the cause - (I'd leave you all)

All work and no play makes me a dull boy
Feel like a clown without my funny nose
Walk to the window break it out with my fist
Jump from the sill and I'll plunge to my death

You can be selfish whatever ya think
Throw back my pills and take a sip of my drink
Walk under the clouds
Walk under the trees
Always again envy covering me

Payback
For all the things
I've done in my past

[Chorus]

Sunshine's gone
It's all gone

By the way, just so you know
Always, this is how I feel

By the way, just so you know
Always, everyday, this is how I feel

I'm not the reason
It's not my fault
It's not my problem
I'm not the cause

I'm not your scapegoat - (I'm not your scapegoat)
I'm not your god - (I'm not your god)
I'm not your martyr - (I'm not your martyr)
This is how I feel - (This is how I feel)

By the way, just so you know
Always, everyday, this is how I feel...


05. Do What You Do

Music & lyrics by Mudvayne
Lips bleed from the rings,
All these little bruises, the little things,
That provoke the segregation.
Lead the separation.
Cage and clip the wings.
Little noises, the little screams,
That stop the operation.
Conscious amputation.

[Chorus:]
Just do what you do,
What you do, what you did to me.
Now I'm stuck in between a rock and nowhere,
With nothing,
With no one.
Just do what you do,
What you do, what you've done to me.
Draw the chalk line around the scene, it's over,
Now it's all over.

Like a heart that's lost its beat.
A little boy, that softly weeps,
Overwhelmed with emotion,
Views burns through explosion.
Lost the forest through the trees
Little whispers, the little dreams,
That sparked the recollection.
Constant suffocation.

[Chorus:]
Just do what you do,
What you do, what you did to me.
Now I'm stuck in between a rock and nowhere,
With nothing,
With no one.
Just do what you do,
What you do, what you've done to me.
Draw the chalk line around the scene, it's over,
Now it's all over.

I can feel my life is changing,
Changing.
I can feel my heart is jaded,
Jaded.

Left the sticks,
Left the stones,
Words don't hurt,
Mend the bones.
I can feel my life is changing.

[Chorus:]
Just do what you do,
What you do, what you did to me.
Now I'm stuck in between a rock and nowhere,
With nothing,
With no one.
Just do what you do,
What you do, what you've done to me.
Draw the chalk line around the scene, it's over,
Now it's all over.

Erase the past and leave the pain,
Cleanse the wounds and forget the name.
Lost the will, ran far away,
So it's all over.

Spread the ash and fill the grave,
Lost the tongue and make my way.
Do what you do and go away,
Now it's all over.


06. The Hate In Me

Music & lyrics by Mudvayne
Lend me your children to borrow
I just need to send them away
Long eyes and tears of sorrow
I promise I'll keep them safe
So sorry it didn't work out
You believe the liar in me
My god, my love, my life
My world, my loss, my rage

Agnostic, for the greater good
When the good things seem to be
Few and far between
Conscious, loss of conscience
Packed the body on ice
Just to keep it numb
Now feel it
Blame some things on the past
Threw away everything that I had
Unraveling for the last time
Stepping out of my skin
(cast in armor)

The hate in me
Feeling so empty
The guilt I swallow
Carve the line
Skin the face
Stare through me
We'll leave you hollow
HOLLOW

Assembly of the militant
Order through anarchy
Eradicate the power's law
Hope's a thing of the past
Hold the gun to your head
(The hammer falls)

The hate in me
Feeling so empty
The guilt I swallow
Carve the line
Skin the face
Stare through me
We'll leave you hollow
Hollow

Wounded, have a loss of feeling
So dead, my heart,
My life has been ruined
Lost in an instant
Saw red in my eyes

The hate in me
So consuming
The lives we swallow
To the front line
Mirror's engaged
Scope's on me
And leaves me hollow

Harvest Children

My god, my love, my life
My world, my loss, my grave


07. Scarlet Letters

Music & lyrics by Mudvayne
My heart is beating
The sun is
The blood is flowing
Setting free
I lost my balance
But god knows I try

I don't wanna be here anymore
In scarlet letters
Carved in two, what once was me
Once was yours, no more

Another battle
And I don't mind
Chain unbroken
Consumed by the light
Now what do you want?
Help me find

I don't wanna be here anymore
In scarlet letters
Carved in two, what once was me
Once was yours, no more

I don't wanna be here anymore
The scarlet letters
Carved in two, what once was me
A piece of you, no more

Do you believe in loss
Do you believe in fate
Do you believe in death
Now that I'm gone

Forsaken me
Ashes to dust
Just let me lie
Lay me to rest
I've done my best
But lost my sight
Turning my back
Leave me alone
It's fear and
Nothing
Say goodbye

[Solo]

I don't wanna be here anymore
In scarlet letters
Carved in two, what once was me
Once was yours, no more

I don't wanna be here anymore
The scarlet letters
Carved in two
What once was me
Once was yours
No more


08. Same Ol?

Music & lyrics by Mudvayne
It's always just the same ol' thing (ol' thing)
It's always just the same ol' thing (ol' thing)
It's always just the same ol' thing (ol' thing)

I don't mind going hungry
It's the hate that you feed
I don't mind being broken
Lost my will to believe
I don't mind being left to waste to rot
Pull me down like a weed, so what?

So I just don't fit
Its who I wanna be
So I just don't care
Its who I wanna be
So I just don't Mind
It's who I wanna be
So I don't give a fuck
It's who I wanna be

I don't mind being tired
When I can't fucking sleep
I don't mind being shattered
Living outside your dream
I don't mind being put to death and broke
Another day to me, so what?

Get it on (what?)
Stand up straight (so what?)
Face the front (what?)
Now listen up (so what?)

Same ol' problems
Same ol' days
Same ol' story
Same ol' game
Same ol' hustles
The same ol' way
Same ol' situation
Same ol' days

I don't mind beating on you
But it's come for me
I don't mind being followed
But you can see my disease
I don't mind being bullied and pushed down
Lost my eyes, skinned my knees, so what?

So I just don't fit
It's who I wanna be
So I just don't care
It's who I wanna be
So I just don't Mind
It's who I wanna be
So I don't give a fuck
It's who I wanna be

Get it on (what?)
Stand up straight (so what?)
Feed the front (what?)
Now listen up (so what?)

Same ol' problems
Same ol' days
Same ol' story
Same ol' game
Same ol' hustle
The same ol' way
Same ol' situation
Same ol' days

Always just the (same ol', same ol', same ol')
Always just the (same ol', same ol', same ol')
Always just the (same ol', same ol', same ol')

I'm just a puzzle missing all the pieces and
I don't care and I don't mind, but would you care at all?
Don't fit
Don't care
Don't mind
Don't give a fuck

In my face
In my way
In my business breaking me
All the time
Everyday
Every fucking second, get away

Same ol' problems
Same ol' days
Same ol' story
Same ol' game
Same ol' problems
Same ol' days
Same ol' story
Same ol' game
Same ol' hustle
The same ol' way
Same ol' situation
Same ol' days

What?
So what?
What?
So what?
What?
So what?
What?
So what?


09. Never Enough

Music & lyrics by Mudvayne
My legs are weary
But I still walk
My hands are sore and broken
But I still clutch
My heart is jaded
But I still love
My cup is empty
But I still pour

All I ever wanted to be
All I ever needed to be
Was whatever you wanted me to
But you took that from me, yeah

[Chorus:]
I was never enough for you
I should have known
I should've known
I was never enough for you
Don't waste my time
Don't waste my

I've lost the feeling
But I still touch
I stopped believing
But I still trust

All I ever wanted to be
All I ever needed to be
Was whatever you wanted me to
But you took that from me, yeah

[Chorus]

All these questions, asking why?
I'll just close my eyes, my eyes
All these people, asking why?
I'll just wave goodbye, goodbye

Time, pushing forward
I'm sick and tired
Need a little shelter
Drag the glass across my eyes
Cut me open, cut me wide
Leave me for the winner
Just to the winner

[Chorus]

I was never enough for you
Just wasting time
Don't waste mine


10. A Cinderella Story

Music & lyrics by Mudvayne
Hold me back and hold me down
Hold me close then push me around
Beat me up, beat me down to the ground
I'm sure I deserved it
Left my world, left me alone
Locked inside head becomes my home
Inside a hole buried bag of bone
I'm sure you had your reasons
Out of your sight
Are you out of your mind?
In my absence your heart
Never grew fonder

You just leave me alone
Tell me, please tell me
It ain't so
I can't believe it so I walk the road
You just left me alone
Tell me, please tell me
It ain't so
Have to believe it so I walk alone
So I walk alone
By myself

Had my back then you turned around
Love by your fault but we're never proud
Ran away but I'm not aloud
So I suffered through it
Out of your sight
Are you out of your mind?
In my absence your heart
Never grew fonder

You just leave me alone
Tell me, please tell me
It ain't so
I can't believe it so I walk the road
You just left me alone
Tell me, please tell me
It ain't so
Have to believe it so I walk alone
So I walk alone

You're not my family
Just nothing left for me you see
It's just like Cinderella
Locked up and hid away
You have no idea
What you've created
Why don't you take a look
And see through a hole without a key
And see what I've been missing
Goddamn you for what has

You're not my family
Just nothing left for me you see
It's just like Cinderella
Locked up and hid away
You have no idea
What you've created
Why don't you take a look
And see through a hole without a key
And see what I've been missing
Goddamn you for what has been done
(No one left, for me)

You just leave me alone
Tell me, please tell me
It ain't so
I can't believe it so I walk the road
You just left me alone
Tell me, please tell me
It ain't so
Have to believe it so I walk alone
So I walk alone

[x4]
It's just like Cinderella
Locked up and hid away
You have no idea


11. We The People

Music & lyrics by Mudvayne
I thought we the people had a brain
I thought we the people had a say
Could've sworn I read it somewhere,
Might've seen it on a bumper sticker

I though we the people had a right
I guess we the people we're wrong
We the people are on
Let's go elect another god

The love they make
I don't give a damn anyway
Rules are made to break
Too big too mean too blind
The American dream
Or a bag of magic beans
You can fight on T.V.
Whatever you need

Send me your tired
Your poor and broken
Send me your life
So I can break you

We the people can have a plan
We the people can make a stand

Could've swore I read it somewhere
Might've seen it in the funny papers
Your money's made to take
Too cheap to steal, to rob
I could tell you had a dream
That busted at the seams
You can get it on the T.V
Whatever you need

Send me your tired
Your poor and broken
Send me your life
So I can break you
Give me your trust
Your faith and wishes
Give me your life
So I can own you
Control YOU!

Hope I sell out
Hope I sell out
Every day there's something new to try
Every day there's something new to buy
Every day there's a new American dream

Send me your tired
Your poor and broken
Send me your life
So I can break you
Give me your trust
Your faith and wishes
Give me your life
So I can own you
