Crooked Teeth Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Break the Fall (3:10)
(If I lose it all)...

I got my back to the wall and now I'm slippin'
Been tryna deal with the thoughts and my condition
And still I try to hang on to what I'm missing
But something's settin' me off, somebody listen
I been runnin' from fate without a lifeline
But now I'm in the wrong place at the wrong time
Tryna find an escape, lookin' to get by
From never gettin' a break, cuttin' the brake line

I've been hangin' by a thread
With my feet over the edge
Got my back against the wall
Will this nightmare ever end?
Will I break before I bend?
If I slip and lose it all, nothing's gonna break the fall

(If I lose it all, nothing's gonna break the fall)

I got my head in the game I'm on a mission
But ever day is the same, a demolition
We are the marginalized but not the victims
Fighting the fight of our lives to make you listen
You got me losin' my breath it's been a long run
I'm tryin' hard to forget, but I know the outcome
I got a thousand regrets, and now I'm on one
I might be losing my head before the song's done

I've been hangin' by a thread
With my feet over the edge
Got my back against the wall
Will this nightmare ever end?
Will I break before I bend?
If I slip and lose it all, nothing's gonna break the fall

Gotta get my head together, my head together
I been tryna keep my head together
Beat down
Gotta get my head together, my head together
I been tryna keep my head together
A beat down
Gotta get my head together, my head together
I been tryna keep my head together
A beat down
Gotta get my head together, my head together
I been tryna keep my head together
A beat down

I've been hangin' by a thread
With my feet over the edge
Got my back against the wall
Will this nightmare ever end?
Will I break before I bend?
If I slip and lose it all, nothing's gonna break the fall
Break the fall
(If I lose it all, nothing's gonna break the fall)
2. Crooked Teeth (3:03)
Locked up in my hurricane head
Bloody knuckles paint the whole place red
Straightjacket, straight tie me to the bed
All alone in a room full of misfits
Cold blooded, cold hearted on a hit list
Paranoid, struggling, I gotta kick this

Everybody's looking at me, staring at me
Everybody's looking at me

Terrified, paralyzed
Something's got a hold on me
Let me go, I can't speak
I'm choking on my crooked teeth
Wake me up if I sleep
Cause I'm haunted by my dreams
Crying out, but I can't speak
Cause I'm choking on my, choking on my
Crooked teeth
My crooked teeth

Caved in, hyperventilating
Cutting way too close to my skin
I feel the devil trying to creep back in
I feel the devil trying to creep back in
I'm possessed by the every day stress
Flash back and I'm trying to forget
Bloody hell, bloody knife, bloody mess

Terrified, paralyzed
Something's got a hold on me
Let me go, I can't speak
I'm choking on my crooked teeth
Wake me up if I sleep
Cause I'm haunted by my dreams
Crying out, but I can't speak
Cause I'm choking on my, choking on my
Crooked teeth

Everybody's looking at me, staring at me
Everybody's looking at me
Everybody's looking at me, staring at me
Everybody's looking at me

Terrified, paralyzed
Something's got a hold on me
Let me go, I can't speak
I'm choking on my crooked teeth
Wake me up if I sleep
Cause I'm haunted by my dreams
Crying out, but I can't speak
Cause I'm choking on my, choking on my
Crooked teeth
My crooked teeth
3. My Medication (3:15)
I push you away until you beg me to stay
Just for the thrill of the chase, you got me
Fucked in the head from all the things that we did
But I will never forget I need you, my medication

Have you ever had enough of it
Straight over it, sick of it, can't get ahold of it
Like a drug I need another fix
I'm a moth to a flame and I'll burn for the hell of it
Battle scar 'cause I lost the fight
Every time I take a breath it's like I'm losing my life
Fuck it, why am I so dysfunctional?
So irrational?
I don't know what to do

So I push you away until you beg me to stay
Just for the thrill of the chase, you got me intoxicated
Fucked in the head from all the things that we did
But I will never forget I need you, my medication

Are you living with the enemy?
Are you affected by the devils that are tryna be a friend of me?
I'm in a place that I don't wanna be
But if I find a way to turn it all around would you follow me?
I'm alive but I lost the fight
It's like the better half of me is on the edge of the knife
Cut it
Why am I so emotional?
Uncontrollable?
I don't know what to do

So I push you away until you beg me to stay
Just for the thrill of the chase, you got me intoxicated
Fucked in the head from all the things that we did
But I will never forget I need you, my medication

I push you away until you beg me to stay
Just for the thrill of the chase, you got me
Fucked in the head from all the things that we did
But I will never forget I need you, my medication
My medication
4. Born for Greatness (3:47)
I am a man at war
And I am fighting for
All of the broken people
All of the people thrown overboard
They always tried to shame us
But they don’t speak the language
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness

Oh, somebody sound the alarm
Oh, a fire was set in the dark
Oh, it’s time that you know
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness

It doesn’t matter if the world has gone mad
If we just hold on, if we just hold on yeah
The sky is falling and the world has gone mad
And we sing our songs, and we just hold on yeah
So if you’re running, stop running
One life, one chance, start living
Sing it louder just to let the world know
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness

We’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness
We’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness

They say that I’m reckless
Because I’m relentless
They spit on my face, and curse on my name
They’re taking my life in vengeance
Yeah you can try and blame us
And try to take what’s sacred
But we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness

Oh, somebody sound the alarm
Oh, a fire was set in the dark
Oh, it’s time that you know
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness

It doesn’t matter if the world has gone mad
If we just hold on, if we just hold on yeah
The sky is falling and the world has gone mad
And we sing our songs, and we just hold on yeah
So if you’re running, stop running
One life, one chance, start living
Sing it louder just to let the world know
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness

We’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness

Somebody sound the alarm
It’s time that you know

It doesn’t matter if the world has gone mad
If we just hold on, if we just hold on yeah
Sing it louder just to let the world know

No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness

We were born for greatness
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless
We were born for greatness
5. American Dreams (3:23)
It feels like, American Dreams caught on fire
We're tearing down the white picket fences
A soldier bleeds, and a soldier dies
Have you ever thought that war was a sickness?
I'm a son of it, fucked up from it,
Casualty of my family 'cause of it
We dare to dream, or live to die
Reunited by the truth at the right time

Something's wrong here
Or so it seems
Cause I'm not sleeping in
American Dreams,
American lies
We're trying to see through the smoke in our eyes
So give me the truth
Don't tell me your lies
Cause it's harder to breathe
When you're buried alive
By American Dreams

With every bullet hole, there's a blood stain
Another family that's struggling to keep sane
Cause their neighborhood, ain't a safe place
Got us all wearing black every Sunday
And I'm growing numb to the violence
Sing along to the sounds of the sirens
We're trying to keep ourselves alive
But it's hard to get by when it feels like

Something's wrong here
Or so it seems
Cause I'm not sleeping in
American Dreams,
American lies
We're trying to see through the smoke in our eyes
So give me the truth
Don't tell me your lies
Cause it's harder to breathe
When you're buried alive
By American Dreams

Cause I'm not sleeping in
American Dreams,
American lies
We're trying to see through the smoke in our eyes
So give me the truth
Don't tell me your lies
Cause it's harder to breathe
When you're buried alive
By American Dreams
By American Dreams
6. Periscope (feat. Skylar Grey) (3:36)
I want to feel your wreckage, it's a firestorm
I'm falling like a loaded weapon in your arms
Paranoid it might be reckless, no matter what I say
It's only going to steal your breath and slip away

I don't want to dive in first
You don't want to hear these words
It's only going to make it worse
You don't want to live that curse
You're telling me to keep my hope
Cause you've got a heart of gold
But maybe you should let me go
I'll love you through a periscope

You wear your heart so fearless, it's like it doesn't beat
You push away my demons when they torture me
Don't think that I can fight this pressure pulling me underneath
It's like I've got the whole world tied around my feet

I don't want to dive in first
You don't want to hear these words
It's only going to make it worse
You don't want to live that curse
You're telling me to keep my hope
Because you've got a heart of gold
But maybe you should let me go
I'll love you through a periscope

Oh-oh, through a periscope
Oh-oh, I-I'll love you through a periscope
Oh-oh, through a periscope
Oh-oh, I-I'll love you through a periscope

I don't want to dive in first
You don't want to hear these words
It's only going to make it worse
But you don't want to live that curse
You're telling me to keep my hope
Because you've got a heart of gold
But maybe you should let me go
I'll love you through a periscope

Oh-oh, through a periscope
Oh-oh, I-I'll love you through a periscope
7. Help (3:34)
I think I need help
I'm drowning in myself

Did someone turn the lights out
Or is it just another dark cloud in my head?
Cause I'm cut deep, my heart won't beat
Deep down low it's killing me
If I wanna scratch out yesterday
I've got so much I need to say
(I've got so much I need to say)

I think I need help
Cause I'm drowning in myself
It's sinking in, I can't pretend
That I ain't been through hell
I think I need help
I'm drowning in myself

They're preying on my weakness
Believe it
I'm thinking to myself "No not again"
And I won't keep listening
When temptations creeping in
If I wanna make it another day
I've got so much I need to say
(I've got so much I need to say)

I think I need help
Cause I'm drowning in myself
It's sinking in, I can't pretend
That I ain't been through hell
I think I need help
I'm drowning in myself

(I'm drowning in myself)

I think I need help
Cause I've put myself through hell

I think I need help
Cause I'm drowning in myself
It's sinking in, I can't pretend
That I ain't been through hell
I think I need help

I think I need help
I think I need help
8. Sunrise Trailer Park (feat. Machine Gun Kelly) (3:47)
[Jacoby Shaddix:]
I was young and I was reckless man
Moved out at seventeen and made my momma mad
I thought I had it all figured out
A pocket full of pills and a forty in my mouth
Peeled out in my big black Chevy
Flipped it six times and I knew that I was ready
To straighten up because my best friend died
I didn't wanna carry on living that life

[Papa Roach:]
And now I'm running from the scene
'Cause I was caught up in the crime
It's a loaded memory
Yeah, it kills me every time
And I'm trying not to scream
But it's eating me alive
I'm still haunted by the best years of
The best years of my life

[Machine Gun Kelly:]
Yeah, let me take y'all back
I was young and I was helpless man
Self medicating my own depression man
I drank a bottle after breakfast
Took a look in the mirror ripped the rosary off my necklace, damn
I lost my job so I lost faith
I just saw a baby bump in my girl's waist
I need a drink to feel right
Party with my homies to escape from real life
Yeah, we had it all figured out
A pocket full of pills and a forty in my mouth
But, I never should've let my best friend drive
'Cause he's the reason my child will never see me alive, damn

[Papa Roach:]
Now I'm running from the scene
'Cause I was caught up in the crime
It's a loaded memory
Yeah, it kills me every time
And I'm trying not to scream
But it's eating me alive
I'm still haunted by the best years of
The best years of my life

[Jacoby Shaddix:]
All of a sudden nothing matters anymore
He lost it all, his life was scattered on the floor
And now his family's tryna pick up all the pieces
I am locked up in a box, I am a monster
I'm the reason that he's gone
Wish I could take it all back
Press rewind and take a picture of the past
Pause it, feel my heart turn black
My lungs are smoldering, I'm breathing in the ash

[Papa Roach:]
Now I'm running from the scene
'Cause I was caught up in the crime
It's a loaded memory
Yeah, it kills me every time
And I'm trying not to scream
But it's eating me alive
I'm still haunted by the best years of
The best years of my life

I'm still haunted by the best years of
The best years of my life
I'm still haunted by the best years of
9. Traumatic (2:48)
Oh, it's so traumatic
I've got these secrets I keep
Is it obvious
They've got me down on my knees
Yeah, just let me go
I keep reliving the scene
Oh, it's so traumatic
Traumatic

There's a darkness inside of this crack headed mind
Locked inside this asylum I'm done
All my secrets are safe so if you summon fate
Can you read through the lines on my tongue

You're playing broken records
It's like they're on repeat
I know those words you're singing
Before you even speak
I can see right where you are
You don't need to hide in the dark

Oh, it's so traumatic
I've got these secrets I keep
Is it obvious
They've got me down on my knees
Yeah, just let me go
I keep reliving the scene
Oh, it's so traumatic
Traumatic

Put me back in my cage if I try to escape
I'm a countdown away from the truth
After all of these talks
Are you ready to stop?
With this twisted traumatic abuse?

You're playing broken records
It's like they're on repeat
I know those words you're singing
Before you even speak
I can see right where you are
You don't need to hide in the dark
I can see right where you are
You don't need to hide in the dark

Oh, it's so traumatic
Oh, it's so traumatic
Oh, it's so traumatic
Traumatic

Oh, it's so traumatic
I've got these secrets I keep
Is it obvious
They've got me down on my knees
Yeah, just let me go
I keep reliving the scene
Oh, it's so traumatic
Oh, it's so traumatic
10. None of the Above (3:34)
Everybody's fucked up off the beat
The words are in our mouths, but we don't speak
Boarded up the windows in the house
Another generation bleeding out

Don't want no part of this, none of the above
I don't want no part of this, none of the above
I don't want no

Take me to church
Cause I've been blessed with a curse
I arrived in a limo and I left in a hearse
They're speaking in tongues
Feels like we're coming undone
Don't want no part of this, none of the above

(N.O.N.E. of the A.B.O.V.E.)
(N.O.N.E. of the A.B.O.V.E.)

Blocking out the static in our heads
We are still alive and playing dead
We don't need a reason for our doubts
Another generation screaming out

Don't want no part of this, none of the above
None of the above

Take me to church
Cause I've been blessed with a curse
I arrived in a limo and I left in a hearse
They're speaking in tongues
Feels like we're coming undone
Don't want no part of this, none of the above

(N.O.N.E. of the A.B.O.V.E.)
(N.O.N.E. of the A.B.O.V.E.)

Don't want no part of this, none of the above

Take me to church
Cause I've been blessed with a curse
I arrived in a limo and I left in a hearse
They're speaking in tongues
Feels like we're coming undone
Don't want no part of this, none of the above

(N.O.N.E. of the A.B.O.V.E.)
None of the above
(N.O.N.E. of the A.B.O.V.E.)
 
Deluxe edition bonus tracks :  
11. Ricochet (3:12)
I count my demons as they dance around my bed
I feel them breathing down my neck, it never ends
Tied up in bondage and I'm tired of giving in
I'm bleeding freedom through the stitches in my skin

Oh, steady
Aim, ready
Go, fire away

I lost control along the way
I got shot down by the ricochet
Sold my soul, no escape
(You're running from the ricochet)
I won't let go, I suffocate
Live to die another day
No control, I'm running from the ricochet

I'm somewhere in between the living and the dead
I've been so blinded I can't see where I've been lead
I feel so hopeless and I'm tired of giving in
I'll crucify myself to feel alive again

Oh, steady
Aim, ready
Go, fire away

I lost control along the way
I got shot down by the ricochet
Sold my soul, no escape
(You're running from the ricochet)
I won't let go, I suffocate
Live to die another day
No control, I'm running from the ricochet

I lost control along the way
I got shot down by the ricochet
Sold my soul, no escape
(You're running from the ricochet)
I won't let go, I suffocate
Live to die another day
No control, I'm running from the ricochet
Oh, I'm running from the ricochet
Run from the ricochet
12. Nothing (3:47)
Nothing's ever gonna change
If you don't stand up and you don't say nothing
Waiting on better days
But they won't show up if you don't do nothing

Deep down it hurts that I can't do a thing
My eyes are bleeding, they're glued to the screen
Headlines are monsters that everyone honors
Blink if it hurts you to see what I see
Both eyes have witnessed this catastrophe
Stand at the altar, swear me a promise

Don't you surrender, no
There's no surrender

Nothing's ever gonna change
If you don't stand up and you don't say nothing
Waiting on better days
But they won't show up if you don't do nothing
You're not safe
Put a needle in your coffin counting all your losses
You're not safe
If you only gotta stand up, stand up

Face with the truth in the demons we see
Fist to the sky, tell me what you believe
Put down your weapons, put down your weapons
If you've been kicked down, get back to your feet
No turning back now, no there's no retreat
When they hear us running, they'll know we're coming

Don't you surrender, no
There's no surrender
Don't you surrender, no
There's no surrender

Nothing's ever gonna change
If you don't stand up and you don't say nothing
Waiting on better days
But they won't show up if you don't do nothing
You're not safe
Put a needle in your coffin counting all your losses
You're not safe
If you only gotta stand up, stand up

Stand up!
Go!
Stand up!
Stand up!
(You're not safe)
Stand up!
13. Bleeding Through (3:23)
Have you been hiding
From the whispers of your doubts
Are you denying me
Cause I keep on reaching out
But after everything that you've been through
I know you did the best that you could do
And I had to let you know
You're so much more than damaged

Why can't you see what I see in you
I know all about the pain you're feeling
What you're going through
Life cuts you open, feels like you're broken
I only wish you knew
In darkness you're still beautiful
But I can see your open wounds
They're bleeding through

I know you're fading
Into the shadows of your life
Don't push me away from you
Do you wanna be lonely when you die?
After everything that you've been through
I know you did the best that you could do

Why can't you see what I see in you
I know all about the pain you're feeling
What you're going through
Life cuts you open, feels like you're broken
I only wish you knew
In darkness you're still beautiful
But I can see your open wounds
They're bleeding through

They are bleeding through
Life cuts you open, feels like you're broken
Life cuts you open and it feels like you're broken

It feels like you're broken
It feels like you're broken
It feels like you're broken
It feels like you're broken
