01. You Walk Away

Music by Filter
Lyrics by Richard Patrick, Geno Lenardo
I got greed, it's got me
I got freeze, it's on me
I can't breathe, I can't see
I just bleed, I just be

I can't see straight, I can't be straight
I just want a life of my own
I can't live hate, I don't want hate
I just want a life of my own

Yeah, I just want a life of my own
Yeah, I just want a life of my own
Yeah, I just want a life of my own

You walk away from me
You walk away from me

My soul leaves, my soul breathes
My heart aches, the ground shakes
You can't beat it, you can't feed it

I can't see straight, I can't be straight
I just want a life of my own
I can't live hate, I don't want hate
I just want a life of my own

Yeah, I just want a life of my own
Yeah, I just want a life of my own

You walk away from me
You walk away from me
You walk away from me


02. American Cliché

Music by Filter
Lyrics by Richard Patrick
Last seat on the bus
Who you gonna trust
Which one do you follow
Last seat on the bus
Don't make such a fuss
This much should make you hollow
'Cause every time you make yourself the reason
Is every time you make yourself between...
Yeah

Yeah, this is a American cliche
American, American
Get on the bus
Yeah, this is a American cliche
American, American
Get on the bus

First seat on the bus
Who you gonna trust
Which one do you may follow
First seat on the bus
Don't make such a fuss
Which one do you make hollow
Now every time you make your friend the reason
And every time you make your friend beaten...yeah

Yeah, this is a American cliche
American, American
Get on the bus
Yeah, this is a American cliche
American, American
Get on the bus

You want a way to be the same
You want a way to be the same
You want a way to be the same Oh no


03. Where Do We Go from Here?

Music by Filter
Lyrics by Richard Patrick, Geno Lenardo
These half-truths you're telling me
Won't bring me to my knees
Scraped up and brused
From your fickleness I plead
Just let me feel some ease
From creatures of your greed
Just let me feel some ease for me

I'm not so glad I met you
It makes me want to go away
So you think its over
I don't, yeah yeah yeah

Where do we go from here?
You know I'm not the only one
Where do we go from here?
You know I'm not the only son

These broken dreams are screams to me
The difference I can't see
The way you look and talk to me
You're cross at me, I freeze
The combination of lost control
The loss of soul, I wheeze
Just give some ease to me

I'm not so glad I met you
It makes me want to go away
So you think its over
I don't yeah yeah yeah

Where do we go from here?
You know I'm not the guilty one
Where do we go from here?
You know I'm not your only son

I just... yeah yeah yeah

Where do we go from here?
Stop dreaming 'bout the shiny gun
Where do we go from here?
You know I'm not the only one

Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?
Where do we go?


04. Columind

Music by Filter
Lyrics by Richard Patrick
What do you think you did here, kid?
You're living like some rich kid, bitch
The scratch that makes you flinch
The scratch that you can't itch

What do you think you got done here, man?
You're putting on a show
What do you think you got done here, kid?
Did you reach your killing goal?

Shame, you got everything
You want everything
Shame, you need everything
You kill everything

Oh Christ, look at them bleed
Oh, what makes this sick disease?
Oh God, they're on their hands and knees
Oh, look at me, I'm about to be free

Now when it's all over
Listen to this shit, man
Now when it's all over
We won't care, we won't care

Shame, you got everything
You want everything
Shame, you need everything
You kill everything


05. The Missing

Music by Filter
Lyrics by Richard Patrick
Hey God told us that we made a very big sin
You don't know where to begin
He says turn the other cheek
But that seems kind of weak
I just want to beat up, beat up the meek
He says you'd be a better man
If you stick with the plan
But I don't think I can
Not with that kind of man

You love to be cruel
You love to be cruel
I'm not a good tool
'Cause you love to be cruel

What now, the cross has been greased
But I don't feel the heat
Nor the peace in the street
Everybody feels the hit
So just bury it in the pit
With the best of the sick ideological shit

You love to be cruel
You love to be cruel
I'm not a good tool
'Cause you love to be cruel


06. The Only Way (Is the Wrong Way)

Music by Filter
Lyrics by Richard Patrick, Geno Lenardo
Did you think that I would disappear?
Did you think that I would wash away?
Did you think that I would last this long?
Did you think that I would get this strong?

Every time they try to make me change
They just wear me down with more chains

And it feels like that you're with me
or against me
And it feels like that your promises
are all mine
And it feels like that to push me
is to shove me
And it feels like that the only way
is the wrong way

Did you think that I could be your crutch?
Did you think that life could mean so much?
Did you think that this could end in bust?
Did you think that it's just plain old lust?

Every time they try to make me change
They just wear me down with more chains

And it feels like the only way is the wrong way
And it feels like the only way is the wrong way
The only way is the wrong way
You always push me down


07. My Long Walk To Jail

Music by Filter
Lyrics by Richard Patrick, Geno Lenardo
There's a little place I'm going
It's a place that I know well
It's a little place that's growing
It's a little space like hell

Goodbye Mom
Goodbye Dad
Goodbye brothers
And my sisters, yeah

So, what makes you think
I'm coming back
This makes me feel so fucking bad
What makes you think
I'm coming back
This makes me feel so fucking bad

Yeah, I'm going to hell
Yeah, I'm going to hell

There's a little fear I'm showing
I'm not so tough anymore
I feel this sickness and it's growing
I'm not so proud anymore

Goodbye Mom
Goodbye Dad
Goodbye brothers
And my sisters, yeah

So, what makes you think
I'm coming back
This makes me feel so fucking bad
What makes you think
I'm coming back
This makes me feel so fucking bad

Yeah, I'm going to hell
Yeah, I'm going to hell
Yeah, I'm going to hell
Yeah, I'm going to hell


08. So I Quit

Music by Filter
Lyrics by Richard Patrick, Geno Lenardo, Frank Cavanaugh, Steve Gillis
Motherfucker!

You got your legal baby
You got your legal good
You got your legal baby
Just like a common hood

You got your legal baby
You got your legal good

To make yourself the fool

You got your legal baby

You got your legal baby
Just like a common hood

You got your legal baby

To make yourself the fool
'Cause you don't need to come to me
To make yourself the fool

09. God Damn Me

Music by Filter
Lyrics by Richard Patrick
There isn't enough hot water to be in
There isn't enough salt lake to lie in
There isn't enough sky to fly in
So softly
There isn't enough breath to breathe
Not for me

Oh, God damn me
Oh, God damn me

There isn't enough snow to see through
Snow's too deep
There isn't enough fog to see through
Not through to me
There isn't enough gain to get from
Not for me

Oh, God damn me
Oh, God damn me

Nothing changes
Nothing rearranged
Nothing changed
Nothing but me

Oh, God damn me
Oh, God damn me


10. It Can Never Be the Same

Music by Filter
Lyrics by Richard Patrick, Geno Lenardo, Frank Cavanaugh, Steve Gillis
You can never be the same to me
And you should never hide your
shame from me
'Cause you, yeah you, will always be
the blame for me
That's a perfect, creepy game for me

It can never be the same
I don't know why
It can never be the same
I don't know why

The truth can break, bruise and lose in you
This flu is the thing that makes and breaks what's you
You, yeah you, will always be the same to me
You, yeah you, will always be the same to me

It can never be the same
I don't know why
It can never be the same
I don't know why

'Cause I'm talking to you
Yeah, I'm talking to you


11. World Today

Music by Filter
Lyrics by Richard Patrick, Rae DiLeo
I like the world today
I like the world today
I like the world today

I like the world today
I like the world today
I like it when it's green

I like the world today
I like the world today
Oh what a hell of a price
What a hell of a price

But sometimes it's mean as hell
But sometimes, but sometimes
But sometimes it's mean as can be

I like the world today
I like the world today
I like the world today
When it's green

I like the world today
I like the world today
Hell of a price to pay
It's a hell of a price to pay

And sometimes it's mean
And sometimes it's mean
And sometimes it's mean as can be

Today
Today
Today
Today
