Win Hands Down Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Win Hands Down (5:06)
This is an ode to all my old buddies
The ones that helped me realize when shit was funny
Cut our teeth
A kick in the ass
Tackling life there's just one chance
Mischief makers piss some off
Deal with consequences or not
Roaming the city eyes open wide
Every adversary is urged to hide

With boots on ground
Win hands down
A giant sound
Win hands down
Just maintain
Then drop the reins
And place my crown
Win hands down

Lise some royal decree
A verbal contract
You're with me
And man I got your back
Seeking adventure every which way
Knowing full well there may be hell to pay
Adolescence in full swing
A booming voice were gonna bring
So much that this platoon can do
Bread and circus is the rule
2. Mess (4:35)
Paralyzing chains of tradition
Let the decadence marinate
Farmers with a dire prediction
Who planted massive seeds we ate
Flower, grower, cultivating seeds we ate
Pilfer, slower, inching closer to checkmate

There's many been bought before, lots before
And this ain't no different
There's many who've fought before, and lost before
And this ain't no different
The price of an all you can eat buffet
Will put you away
You ain't no different, I ain't no different
There ain't no difference
Between the likes of us
Except were all gonna bust

The mess, the mess that we continue to make
Living in our culture of waste
The mess that we all make will
Annihilate
The mess, the mess that we continue to make
Mom said better clean your plate
The mess that we all make will
Annihilate

Waste

Fat the hero modus operandi
Gluttons eat all in their path
Sell the public items they must buy
Use 'em once then they get the shaft

There's many been bought before, lots before
And this ain't no different
There's many who've fought before, and lost before
And this ain't no different
The line at the all you can eat buffet
It blows me away
You ain't no different, I ain't no different
There ain't no difference
Between the likes of us
Except we're all gonna bust
3. An Exercise in Debauchery (6:00)
He never killed anyone but he hurt some
Body's feelings once
Pushed in the corner with his shame dressed
Up like a dunce
Is it crowth or decay when
You peel off the skin
Magazines dvds jeez
Where heve you been

Easy to spot the perverts today
They're ripe like low hanging fruit
Keep dirty secrets tucked away or lie and
Murder all with the truth

An exercise in debauchery
If all's revealed a grim catastrophe
Bizarro ways ends up in misery
It's an exercise in debauchery

You won't care about this later
When you're finished I'm sure
You need to figure things out
But your vision's a blur
Will you come out of this phase
Is what I ask of myself
It's your addiction to smut man
You really need help

Hard not to run from creeps today
They're cross so give him the boot
You claim your actions are
Safe and sound
But that's not getting down to the root

No it's an exercise in debauchery
Hanging out with ugly company
We should talk and deal accordingly
With your exercise in debauchery

In fairness and kidding aside
Your choices are something to hide
In fairness it's painful to watch
Won't be there the day you get caught
You're hiding behind the sun
Look at what you've become
When darkness gives way to glare
You'll be there
Beware

An exercise in debauchery
If all's revealed a grim catastrophe
Bizarro ways a form of sorcery
It's a exercise in debauchery
4. Muscle Memory (7:14)
I read the news every day or I try
Switch back and forth between
A scowl and a smile
People lift me up or drop me
Flat like a stone
But still I want to believe in them
My clan comes number one in the fight
We brought souls in this world
And we'll do it right
Though my moods they swing like a pendulum
They know where my heart comes from
Like our dear departed friend Andy told me
It's only water off a ducks
Back in the stream
Face it like a man face it like a wimp
But either way you're facing it

Burying your hero underneath
Your feathers
Signals a swan song
Yes the ride is short but your
Heretage is long

Muscle memory
Is what I use to carry me
Muscle memory
Ain't no way I worry 'bout a thing
Muscle memory
I reference stuff I know
Muscle memory
Then put my feet down and go

I want music to bring me down to my knees
Make me sob like an infant make me angry
Rip me to shreds clue me back up
Make my mind explode
Things that matter I can afford
Get my shit together and get onboard
Shed every pound, melt it away
Rid that overweight load

Burying your head underneath the sand
Is succumbing to the words I can't
Ok the ride may stall but your legacy
Stands tall

Muscle memory
Is what I use to carry me
Muscle memory
Ain't no way I worry 'bout anything
Muscle memory
I reference stuff I learn
Muscle memory
Disfigurement I've earned

And I wear it like a badge of honor
No stone unturned
Yeah it's the bane of my existence
To pass the torch in a world of nonsense

Shot a miss
So many nights I've toiled over this
Once around
Crotchety young man make it count

I make my own news out on the fly
Do much more than I need to get by
People lift me up
Don't let me drop
Or at least have a net there

Burying your hero in your hands
Looks like a deserted plan
Yes the ride is short
With temptations to abort
ok the ride may stall
You still sound off the bugle call

Muscle memory
Is what I use to carry me
Muscle memory
Ain't no way I worry 'bout anything
Muscle memory
I reference stuff I know
Muscle memory
Then put me feet down and go

And I go, yeah
There I go
5. That Was Then, Way Back When (5:08)
I'm taking a walk to the neighborhood psychic
Want to find out what's in store for the day
Got all my pictures strewn across facebook
Want to be liked in a desperate way
I market myself it's a foregone conclusion
I dish out winks in this busy foray

Living vicariously, living vicariously
I live through every single
Stranger that I meet

Somebody knows me
Guess again
Someone likes me
Guess again
Love being famous
Guess again
My fifteen minutes it came and it went

That was then
I got lost on purpose so I could be found
Way back when
I got lost on purpose so I could be found

I drift on back a couple of decades
And regress to a time I was king
The future seems so uncertain
But the past is a place I could do anything
Give me a phone call send me a text
I even gave you, your own unique ring

Living harmoniously, living harmoniously
We live through every crappy
Song that we sing

That was then
I got lost on purpose so I could be found
Way back when
I got lost on purpose so I could be found

So I'll buy a round
Drown
Se we can drown, all our sorrows
Mosey up chumps let's all hit the bar
I'll tell old war stories when I use to be a star
You remember then
Don't you remember then?

Someone knows me
Guess again
Someone loves me
Guess again
These are my friends
I can't accept that I'm a has been

That was then
I got lost on purpose so I could be found
Way back when
I got lost on purpose so I could be found

Man I was lost
Damn I was found
Suffer the cost
So I could be found
6. With a Head Full of Steam (5:18)
Ain't no jog, ain't no jog
It's a sprint till the end
Out of breath, out of breath
Another hills 'round the bend
Gear is on, gear is on
And I'm dressed to defend
What you got for me?
Throw it all on me

Sandpapered away
The bloom is off the rose
Pick a new bouquet
The old one decomposed
Wipe the brow and say
My vain system peaks when it hits 'em

So pristine
Well I keep pushing onward
With a full head of steam
Severed clean
Wash my hands of this land where I was brought

In my scope, in my scope
Triggers set and I don't miss
If you live, if you live
Then I failed and you'll exist
But I won't, but I won't
Don't waste time and resist
What I got for you
Throw it all at you
Watch it flow river's wild down the hill
Another notch I'm paid well for a kill

Sandpapered away
And the assigment will be closed
Pick a new bouquet
While arteries froze
Wipe the brow and say
My vain system spikes when it clips 'em
7. In an Instant (7:36)
Carpe diem seize the moment
Era fleeting keep on breathing

The fragility of life
Curve balls fall from out of the sky
And as you stare and ponder why
It accelerates then passes you by

If in an instant it turns south
Can't retract what flew out of your mouth

Do you give all
Grab life by the balls
Or bathe in fear
Voices you can't really hear
It comes testing of your will
Is your spirit made of steel

The fragility of time
There's no clear reason no sure rhyme
Although everything appears fine
It can drive the strongest
Out of their minds

And in an instant it turns south
Pinned to the mat and now you're out

Missed the boat with the red flag waving
Rhetoric seeped in and scathing
Sorry for always saying sorry
Way too much or never enough

Fist to the jaw and your knocked out
Although you're down, got to reborn

Do you give all
Grab life by the balls
Or drown in fear
Voices you can't really hear
It comes testing or your will
Is your spirit strong as steel

The fragility of life
It can change with the blink of an eye
And as you gaze and wounder why
It accelerates then passes you by
Don't let it pass you by

When in an instant it turns south
True to yourself you can't
Ever doubt yeah

Even if your head is spinning
Even if your head is reeling
8. Dive (4:40)
A perfect chair
To park my derriere
Look out the window
and see the world moving along

A scenic view
Tell me what I should do
It's irrelevant cause
I don't ever listen

You still offer your ostrich omelette
You already bought the farm

A snail's pace
Is better than that rat race
The labyrinth maze is never ending

So skip the cheese
And rise from your knees
That concrete ground ain't very comfy
You still offer your calloused hand
But your just a shell of a man

Dive off the deep end
Someone's drainded the pool
a hard surface you collide

Dives off the deep end
Why choose to pretend

What your diving towards
Is an owl's eye

Dive off the deep end
Dive off the deep end

Somones draided the pool
Faster than you collide

Dive off the deep end
Try not to pretend

What your timing towards
empty boobie prize

Dive
Dive
Dive

Hard surface you collide
9. Up Yours (5:23)
A kiss new year's eve is a gesture of hope
A kiss goodbye gives a lump in the throat
One inspires the other puts out fires
A love for kissing feet makes him a weirod
You kissing my ass makes you a big joke
Not so funny nothing to laugh about

No more what ifs, no more what ifs
Wait man, hey man, hold on
No more what ifs, no more what ifs
What if I'm obligated to keep you
I'll grit my teeth and sweep you
Under the rug

A stroll in the park can be a moment of zen
But you lurking in the dark
Begging to be my friend
Can really rub, rubs me the wrong way
Following my tracks is what you do
Although I never remember ever giving a clue
Or a hint or a blatant come with me

No more what ifs, no more what ifs
No more, no more, no more
No more what ifs, no more what ifs
No more entry to your revaged mind
I'll break the mold one of a kind
But you say I'm

Sincerely, up yours
Positively, up yours
Gotta fake it to the right and take a detour
Yeah you say I'm deep and truly, up yours
Exclusively, up yours
Finding you hard so hard to ignore
That's for sure
Sure as shit that's it
Firmly planted up yours

Seems to be
It's a chain link in your minds
Some parallel to our lives
I'm being followed by a sky scanner
With old Nasa parts from some
Black market dealer

In your grade school science project
You're trying to revive

Seems to be a delusion of grandeur
A twisted fucked up matter
A distorted sense of wrong and right
And that ain't right
Got your app with the police scanner
Mapped out daily planner
And the krav maga trainer in case of a fight

It's time to turn the tables on you
And get the hell out of dodge
Not a moment too soon
Gotta flee gotta drain the tank empty
This ugly bond is debatable
Obviously dysfunctional
Although I do admire your stalking abilities

No more what ifs, no more what ifs
No more, no more, no more
No more what ifs, no more what ifs
No more entry to your revaged mind
I'll break the mold one of a kind
But you say I'm

Up yours
Forcing me to say
You can shove it right, up yours
You can stick it right, up yours
Where the sun ain't shining, up yours
With your social climbing, up yours
You can sit and spin with it, up yours
Sit down and rotate, up yours
Release the floodgates, up yours
Screw yourself and shove it right up yours
Directly up yours
