Caveat 01:15
This Is a wake-up call A call to arms Get on the floor Caveat Emptor (We’re) going where no band Has gone before
Try To move me All I need is a kick in the ass And my tongue and my teeth are Sharpened To my whims Hold fire I propose A sum of equals greater than our parts If we’re gone tomorrow I swear I’ll leave us something In our hearts
Amazing Pain 03:53
Amazing pain How sweet the grind Destroy a wretch like me I’ve lost Everything I ever found And crawl back to the sea I have no home anymore I’ve lost sight of the shore I do this for me I do this for me Brothers, I ask what will I do for me? Just another weak man Trying to learn to be strong No rhyme or reason Not in this song Senseless thoughts I can’t be right, won’t be wrong And brothers I ask what I will do for me Floating on a mile of quiddity Hands on deck Carelessly If I’m washed ashore I have but one wish Make it somewhere I ain’t been before I’m going too fast Too many voices I do this for me Not you Have I ever Told you …
Let’s kill this party we started Shrieking as real as a chick in cheap porn Sweden and Florida should have your fucking royalties Give them death Death to metal Two hundred riffs do not a song make Watching these stoners live the cliché I’m praying you dickholes ignore my band We still blow you pricks away Death to metal Scum There’s nothing you can do There’s nothing you can say I refuse These silly games Broken children Stupid names Don’t tell me about your pain Entertain me, or fuck off I’d kill and eat our heroes But I like my meat fresh Tin roof rusty! you made the best songs ever pulled giants from thin air the underground hurdled by zeitgeist with mascara and a haircut these accolades should be yours the fakes have passed off as their own the great revolution that never was now obscurity calls, stigma, and shame Victim
Walk 02:27
Burning Were you there when the world caught fire? Burning When the smoke and the ash covered everything we owned Glorious The sky bright red, and the sun bled Danger With the shirt on my back And a stereo in my hand I walked In a burning rain, in the ash and pain I was sure I’d lost everything Three hours later with the fire put out and the smoke cleared Three hours of freedom like I’d never known With the shirt on my back And my feet bare I walked
Magnificent 03:53
Be yourself Searing, honest Leading a singular life We have Evolved Past the mere need to survive Be bold Innocent Hand in hand with divinity Laughter, ecstasy The undraping of mystery Only seven to go Dance you Jezebel you Let them fall it was love, if love was sin ten thousand lions scream their praise I burn with hallelujahs unto to my absolute last, magnificence Hallelujah
Seeking the violence the fire in my gut is persistent Seeking the violence my face gives to fists a resistance Scrub my eyes, strike me blind, whisper anything in my ear Turn me off like a broken toy Take my mind, take my soul, drop my body down a hole Get me out of here I’m the piece of the puzzle that ain’t right and I’m aiming for the front door I need to get in a fight and I’m not coming back Until I Get my Ass kicked He said we’re going to hell I said it’s the journey not the destination The only light we see Is behind the eyes when we get hit I plan to bash my head against this wall until I see god I’d feel panic if I could But I can’t Guess I’ll settle for manic I need my ass kicked I need a lobotomy I need a hug But really I need my fucking head kicked
White Flag 04:01
When the siren sounds And the doors are closed Worked into the ground And its time to go With a golden watch With a farewell show I surrender Heal my soul When the siren sounds And the curtains draw closed And you know that you’ve travelled As far as you can go Sweep away the mandala Put the bass back in the bag Embrace the tabula rasa And raise a white flag When I’ve finally reached the end a new horizon my future shining black is all I see I will raise the flag of surrender and rejoice in my victory Blow me away my existence No consolation You’ll understand One day to be erased By god’s hand all I make is standing with my back to the sun, tracing my shadow in the sand to embrace tomorrow you got to say goodbye to today listen closely to the sea it says the same things I would say know your reasons they’re singing inside the back of your head let them free All I make Is standing with my back to the sun Tracing my shadow in the sand One day to be erased By god’s hand
My centre gives way My right is pushed back Surrounded by enemies, so I attack We’re far from over We’re taking what’s ours I’m taking the eyes of the first one to blink I’m taking us all way over the brink We’re taking over and won’t be The first ones to fall The news of my death is exaggerated You and me are now going nowhere cause We’re far from over Forever I’ll be your very own curse I’m reaching up high to drag you back down If you think you’re safe I’ll still be around We’re on a path from which we Will never return
Let Me Sleep 05:12
I’m tired I stopped caring years ago Even rocks look like pillows Operating on broken code A screen of alerts Eyes too dead to read When I stare in the abyss I see my alarm clock Staring back at me I tried so hard To swing the fates my way Cruel morpheus denies me We got things in common, you might say Nothing matters Let me dive beyond my depth And in the dark, disappear I’m tired Let me sleep I’m tired I’m so tired All I need Is air to breathe Time I know that I could Reach for the stars, and I would Try, but for some rest It’s all I need Time and time and time (and time) again my peace shattered my brain is off the hook Like a great doctor I too had a dream then I woke up and remembered I was late for work This new day’s dawning now It’s someone else’s day I’m yawning , I’ve had enough I’m tired, so tired Let me sleep Let me sleep No more games….no more walking…boring….No fun – for anybody…You are getting greedy. Act your old age. Relax – this won’t hurt
Hey I was thinking about you the other day Tired I had worked another night, seen another dawn And I wanted to say we had some good times we had some fun And we thought these days would last forever Flavour bursts inside my mouth I remember the sunny day the beer was cold, the sun was gold, the sky was filled with temples I still remember everything how I tried so hard to say even though we had places to go these days would last forever The people I’ve met The places I’ve been The stuff I’ve done The things I’ve seen If time’s one great loop Not linear, like our senses then I feel it’s safe to say these days will last forever We float here When you’re here You’ll float too Crazy though it seems I have a peculiar notion We float above the world Rotating slow motion If you hold it in your hand Will you drop it? Put down your fist Come on in, the water’s warm I’m telling you We won’t be missed
