Sick Society Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. I Know The Darkness (5:16)
I know the darkness
I know the darkness

I feel so cold, it has begun
I really know, who is the one
No one cares, no one believes
What can be fair, take what you need

I know the darkness
I know it well
I know the darkness
It's a private hell

I sense the love, I call the name
I try to learn, I fight the blame
Take my thoughts, take my regret
Who is the king, collect your debt

I can see, I can see

I know the darkness
I know it well
I know the darkness
It's a private hell

I hide the plan, I play the fool
I count the time, until the rule
Take my fears, take my home
Just don't leave me here, I can't be alone

I know the darkness
I know it well
I know the darkness
It's a private hell

I count the time

I know the darkness
I know it well
I know the darkness
It's a private hell

Private hell
2. Sick Society (4:55)
You can't walk the streets at night
You better lock your doors
You better look in the shadows
It's not safe no more
You see it on the tv news
How many killed today
The numbers grow, it's out of hand
It's time they got to pay

Sick society
Sick society

You can't trust a smiling face
They'll kill you with their greed
The dollar rules the criminal mind
No matter what your needs
You see them drop one by one
You wonder if you're next
All we're taught throughout our life
Better violence than sex

Sick society
Sick society

For any life that they take
Commits a war of rage
That we all got to pay

A vigilante is not a bad idea
It's time to settle the scores
The prison walls have overflowed
It's time we won this war
There's no question what will change the game
You can't leave a doubt
No parole for violent crimes
It's one strike, you're out

Sick society
Sick society
It's a sick society
There ain't nowhere, where you're ever safe
Sick society
3. Violence In Blame (5:59)
Hey mother, why don't you tell the truth
Your sugar coated cande is turning black and blue
The silver linings faded, why don't you feel the rain
When it's coming down all around you turn and walk away
The sun don't shine when it's time for violence and blame

Hey father, why don't you sayt a word
The silence isn't fair when I'm trying to be heard
You listened to me screaming and said I'd have to pay
The price if I should tell a soul what you did to me
The sun don't shine when it's time for violence in blame
Your violence in blame

Time changes and I'm on my own
I've learned to hide the feelings I face when I'm alone
Still fighting for the reasons, I keep them locked away
But every time I look inside, these skeletons escape
The sun don't shine when it's time for violence in blame
Your violence in blame

Where were you, too late for you now
The ties have all but faded, the flowers wilt away
And all is said forgiven for your violence in blame
4. Those Were The Daze (4:47)
Well, I'm standing at the station
Got my suitcase in my hand
It's too bad, couldn't think of a solution
For the problems that we had
It's so sad
Still life goes on, but the good times remain
And I'll never forget
Those were the daze
Those were the daze

No, I won't forget the laughter in the middle of the night
It felt so right, how we lived for every moment
Till we saw the morning light and I held you tight
Why does love slip away when you want it to stay
Well, the all you can say is
Those were the daze
Those were the daze

So sad to say, sometimes things work out that way

No, I can't find the reasons that my heart is holding on
But I can't break the memory that you left in my soul

I know I've got to move on, I'm moving on
Gonna hitch a ride to new roads, find a life out on my own
All by myself now, life will go on and I'll find someone new
To forget about you
Those were the daze
Those were the daze
Those were the daze

Those were the daze
5. Destructive Ground (4:58)
Who died and made you god to tell me what I should do
How I choose to live my life is not up to you
What you need is a dosage of reality
Get the axe, I need to gain my sanity

Only one solution, it's coming down
Gonna dig your own grave on destructive ground

When were you resurrected, you know it all
Selling fear to shock the weak is not control
Of something you know nothing of
So don't pretend, you can justify the means, until the end

Only one solution, it's coming down
Gonna dig your own grave on destructive ground

Fear of death tears at your soul
In this life, you'll never know

You can have your empty words
High upon your throne
Praying on the agony of the unknown
When you wallow in misery, it's such a shame
Wasted thought will never solve the mystery

Only one solution, it's coming down
Gonna dig your grave on destructive ground

Dig yourself an early grave
Worry your whole life away
Listen, destructive ground
6. To The Edge (5:20)
Take me from this earth
To where you roam
I never wanted
To be left alone
But then you took your life
Away from me
I never wanted
But that's what to be
Oh, tell me why

I've searched the rainbows
I've looked inside
I've travelled many miles
Since your suicide
I remember all the things
That we planned for
I never once dreamed
You'd be no more

Was it so bad
The life we had
Tell me why
You took me to the edge
You took me to the edge

Was it so bad
The life we had
Tell me why
You took me to the edge

Take me from this earth
To where you roam
I never wanted
To be left alone
But then you took your life
Away from me
I never wanted
This way to be

Was it so bad
The life we had
Tell me why
You took me to the edge
I never said goodbye
Oh, tell me why
Why did you take your life

Goodbye
7. The Price Of War (4:16)
Take me home, once again
Don't know where that I've been
I've seen blood and I've seen hate
I've seen death, face to face

The price of war
The price of war

I can see when I sleep
Things no one should ever keep
I've seen life, stole away
I've seen pain, most every day

The price of war
The price of war

How many more must die?
The price of war

I recall genocide
I have seen children die
I've seen blood and I've seen hate
I've seen death, face to face

The price of war
The price of war

How many more must die?

What is it all for?
8. Every Emotion (5:08)
In a crowded room I sit alone
And think about you, why I don't know
What has come over me, why do I feel this way
The distance brings me closer, when you're away
I can't forget your face

What's your condition for letting go
I want to look inside the window to your soul
Come in from the cold, your secret's safe and warm
No need to hide from emotions anymore
It's in your eyes
You can't disguise your every emotion

I know we share the same desire
Let's walk through life
What no regrets of what it might have been
Cause time can never change how much I care
When it's so strong

You went away and left me here alone
There's so much pain, I'm learning to let go
Still in the dark I never knew
The reasons why I still think of you

Every emotion leads me back to you
Every emotion, no matter what I do
Listen to me, am I getting through
Every emotion, every emotion, leads me back to you
Oh every, every emotion

Heard through friends you're asking how I've been
I never let it show, I've been doing time
Trying to find you everywhere we used to go

What can I say, what can I do
I haven't gotten over you
You're still inside my soul
I don't know why
I can't erase you from my mind
Oh why can't I just let go

In a crowded room I sit alone
Think about you, why I don't know
"Hello, how have you been?"
You turn and walk away
I guess there's nothing more to say
9. The Vampire (5:21)
She feels a presence in her soul
Drawing ever nearer
A voiceless calling
Through the night
Is becoming clearer
A touch of madness fills the air
And she hears the message
A sense of danger with a fear
And a spell controls her now

She wants to taste, burning desire
She's giving blood for the vampire

A shadow fell into the room
Silence came upon her
Seduction burned in chemistry
And a passion drew her
Closer to forever dreams
In the eyes of danger
Temptation went to the extremes
Of an unrelenting night

She wants to taste, burning desire
She's giving blood for the vampire

Starving for another fix
Thoughts of blood evolve her
A victim of eternal greed
Living for the slaughter
Their love will burn forevermore
With the darkest of passion
Until she sees the rising sun
In the coldness of his soul

She wants to taste, burning desire
She's giving blood for the vampire

You can hear her through the night
How she cries
10. Sugarcaine (4:52)
Seven after midnight, smoked her last cigarette
She is waiting on a stranger, paying off a debt

She's giving blood for a little life of her own
You know to ease that pain

She gets high on Sugarcaine
She confides in Sugarcaine

Now she's got a little problem leaving well enough alone
Blinded by a feeling when she falls for Mr. Jones

Dealing with addiction
Giving herself away for some more
And it's on in the same

She gets high on Sugarcaine
She confides in Sugarcaine

Now don't even try to tell her 'cause she's heard it all before
Gonna come to the conclusion when her body hits the floor

She knows she's only got herself to blame
So it's O.K., it's O.K.

She gets high on Sugarcaine
She confides in Sugarcaine
She gets high on Sugarcaine
Shes gonna die on Sugarcaine
Sugarcaine
11. Love And Hate (3:46)
I feel so alive
You've got me feeling satisfied
You're saying something
You'd like to see me
On my knees for you
(wouldn't you?)
Love and hate
Love and hate

You manifest the pain
I welcome it in vein
You're up to something
But I can't believe
That your intentions
Could never be true
(but I don't care)
Love and hate
Love and hate

I hate to love you still
I'd burn for you in hell
You give me fever
In the third degree
You've got the only
Cure for my disease
(I want you)
Love and hate
Love and hate

You've got me feeling satisfied
Love and hate
Love and hate
12. Angel Falls (7:04)
Little miss divine, she's on the road to ruin
Searching for a love to clear her clouded mind
Through the smoke she dreamed there was no disillusion
On the beaten path she found an uphill climb

So she spread her wings for a lover to hold
But she came up empty handed and cold
Hell's a heaven that never calls
Dancing with danger angel falls

Kneeling at the altar praying for salvation
Longing for the answer but there was no sign
In the eyes of lust she sacrificed redemption
Secular emotions bled her dry

So she sold her soul for a lover
She the highway to a burning city
Hell's a heaven that never calls
Dancing with danger angel falls
Angel falls

No tragedy is too unjust
Deceit is blind in spoken trust
The liar waits to pull you in
And so you go through hell again... and again

So say your prayers for life to keep
There's not much time before you sleep
It's getting deeper in the game
And flesh won't help to ease you pain... when it's too late

Sympathy is nothingness inside a sentence
Given without warning, it's time to die
Mercy's not familiar with the plague of ages
Lost within a vengeance, she took to flight

And she spread her wings for a lover to hold
But they came up empty handed and cold
Hell's a heaven that never calls
Dancing with danger angel falls
Angel falls
When you play with fire, be prepared to burn
You know you'll never, ever learn

Angel falls
