Facelift Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level
1. We Die Young (2:32)
Scary's on the wall
Scary's on his way

Watch where you spit
I'd advise you wait until it's over
Then you got hit
And you shoulda known better

And we die young
Faster we run

Down, down, down you're rollin'
Watch the blood float in the muddy sewer
Take another hit
And bury your brother

[CHORUS]

Scary's on the wall
Scary's on his way

Another alley trip
Bullet seeks the place to bend you over
Then you got hit
And you shoulda known better
2. Man in the Box (4:46)
I'm the man in the box
Buried in my shit
Won't you come and save me, save me

[CHORUS]
Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut?
Jesus Christ, deny your maker
He who tries, will be wasted
Feed my eyes now you've sewn them shut

I'm the dog who gets beat
Shove my nose in shit
Won't you come and save me, save me

[CHORUS]
3. Sea of Sorrow (5:49)
Mind, of destructive taste
I choose...to stroll amongst the waste
That was your heart
Lost in the dark
Call off the chase

Walls of thought, strong and high
As my castle crumbles with time...
I think of you
Oh, yes I do
Such a crime

[CHORUS]
You opened fire...and your mark was true
You opened fire...aim my smilin' skull at you
You opened fire...
I live tomorrow, you I'll not follow
As you wallow in a sea of sorrow

Lines cut across my face
Why you laugh at my disgrace
I'll never know
How far to go
To reach that place

[CHORUS]
4. Bleed the Freak (4:01)
My cup runneth over
Like blood from a stone

[CHORUS]
These stand for me
Name your god and bleed the freak
I like to see
How you all would bleed for me

When the pig runs slower
Let the arrow fly
When the sin lies bolder
I'll pluck out thine eye

[CHORUS]

If you scorn my lover
Satan got your thigh
If you steal in hunger
I will kick you when you try

[CHORUS]
5. I Can't Remember (3:42)
Turn around you say
'Scuse the 'tude but I haven't eaten today
And my eyes are turning grey
What's your name?

[CHORUS]
I can't remember...I can't remember

Bring me down you try
Feel the pain and keep it all in till you die
Without eyes you cannot cry
Who's to blame?

[CHORUS]

Remember identity, the visions in my mind from
Screamin' at me
And mama, mama, ooh...my angry brains of infancy

Knocked down but I have enough hate
to breathe, down your throat and steal your energy
You took everyting but my will to be
Now the loss of your god won't make me bleed

I am alive
6. Love, Hate, Love (6:26)
I tried to love you I thought I could
I tried to own you I thought I would
I want to peel the skin from your face
Before the real you lays to waste

You told me I'm the only one
Sweet little angel you should have run
Lying, crying, dying to leave
Innocence creates my hell

Cheating myself still you know more
It would be so easy with a whore
Try to understand me little girl
My twisted passion to be your world

Lost inside my sick head
I live for you but I'm not alive
Take my hand before I kill
Still love you, I still burn

Love, hate, love
7. It Ain't Like That (4:37)
There I was, laid out on a table
Screamin' sweat and bare feet to the floor
In my life, I'd not soften
Things that cut, and burn so often
But I sit, think of somethin'
Scared to face, the dyin' nothin'

[CHORUS]
See the cycle I've waited for
It ain't like that anymore

Where I go is when I feel I'm able
How I fight is why I'm feelin' sore
In my sight, not forgotten
Feel as though, a tooth were rotten
Behind the smile, a tongue that's slippin'
Buzzards cry, when flesh is rippin'

[CHORUS]

Here I sit writing on the paper
Trying to make the words you can't ignore
In my mind, what I'm lacking
Score at face, a ten for slacking
Sign the deal, set in motion
Smaller fish, so huge the ocean

[CHORUS]
8. Sunshine (4:44)
Am I too contagious
Full of sick desire
Am I that I promise
Burning corpsed pyre

Then some dude came down to touch the Mother
Mother touched, and dude ain't here no more

Am I your reflection
Melting mirror smile
Am I worth the value
Do my love defile

Then some dude came down to touch the Mother
Mother touched and dude ain't here no more
Ain't no day the sun don't crack
Try brand some name across my back so you care?
Find someone to tell you

[CHORUS]
Sunshine...sweet love my labor
Don't mind...I don't care no more

Can you face the queston?
Is my soul entire?

[CHORUS]
9. Put You Down (3:16)
Heartbreaker, feelin' alright
Body over...mind
It's slower, reduction is addictive too
Personality overview

I can see what the cost will be
You know I don't need you
I just can't put you down
I can see what it all means to me
Honey I don't need you
I just can't put you down

I can't put you down

Hard drinker...feelin' uptight
Your maker...mine
It's slower...reduction is addictive too
Personality overview

I can see what the cost will be
You know I don't need you
I just can't put you down
I can see what it all means to me
Honey I don't need you
I just can't put you down

Put you down, down, down, gonna put you down, down

Everything you buy is for the jingle
Every time you lie it's all the same
Ooo, if you need a rhyme to kill the singer
Shoot me dead before I may be through
10. Confusion (5:44)
there's no time to give at all
I cause yo grief and blow my hatred
Further in your mind
You ureach, I run, you fall
On skinned knees you crawl

[CHORUS]
I want to set you free, recognize my disease
Love, sex, pain, confusion, suffering
You're there crying, I feel not a thing
Drilling my way deeper in your head
Sinking, draining, drowning, bleeding, dead

So you sit and think of love
I wait, hate all the more, I fall
On skinned knees I crawl

[CHORUS]

Now there's time to give it all
I put my fears behind again
On skinned knees we'll crawl

[CHORUS]
11. I Know Somethin (Bout You) (4:22)
Why don't I take it all OK?
I like to dig and fuck around with your day
I'm gonna tell your mamma
Yeh I'm gonna blackball your name
Ain't now way you'll go without me
Every chance I'll make you pay

[CHORUS]
On your space, in my face, I tell you I know
Somethin' 'bout you, I know somethin' 'bout you
In my space, on your face, I tell you I know somethin'
'Bout you, I know somethin'

Why can't I put your words away
I'd like to have more of you in my veins
I'm gonna tell your papa
Yeh I'm gonna try and ball your babe
Your gold key don't fit my crapper
Ain't got no shit today

[CHORUS]

I'm gonna tell your mama
Yeh I'm gonna blackball your name
Ain't no way you'll go without me
Every chance I'll make you pay

[CHORUS]
12. Real Thing (4:03)
I messed around as a little boy
I grew up, made the blade my new toy
Friends said boy with what you screwin' around I said
Don't concern yourselves and just
Gimme another blast
Yeah

[CHORUS]
Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt
Take it away, don't want no more
Even if you say just one more
I won't leave you alone

I grew up, went into rehab
You know the doctors never did me no good
They said son you're gonna be a new man
I said thank you very much and
Can I borrow fifty bucks?

[CHORUS]

'Cause I'm goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Straight to nowhere
[REPEAT]

I messed around as a little boy
I grew up, made the blade my new toy
Friends said boy with what you screwin' around I said
Don't concern yourselves and just
Gimme another blast
Yeah

[CHORUS]

'Cause I'm goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Straight to nowhere
