Wiseblood Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. King of the Rotten (3:14)
If I was king of all the rotten
stealing filth from those forgotten
would you be my queen of this desperate land, do you give a damn?

What if I had to scold you
listen once but never tried and true
What if I had to trade you for another man, do you think I can?

I won't call on the angels no
beating on the line as I turn to amputate...
I'm bleeding on you

What if you were torn in two
what if I wanted to be like you
what if I was high like an aeroplane, would you look at me the same?

I won't call on the angels no
beating on the line as I turn to amputate...
I'm bleeding on you

If we walked side by side
would you step stab my back and kill my pride
or would you fall ahead, or would you move behind,
tell me what's unkind

Now if I was king of all the rotten
stealing filth from those forgotten
would you be my queen of this desperate land, do you think I give a damn?

I won't call on the angels no
beating on the line as I turn to amputate...
I'm bleeding on you
2. Long Whip/Big America (4:52)
Saw the news today, some D.C. suit trying to break away,
said he lost another million
just another old man trying to pass the buck with a dirty hand
good thing he knows his bible

Stick his ass in hell ever better in in this tiny cell
make him understand the meaning
of these words they try to preach just to keep them out of the nations reach
I guess it's all for the better

Take it all away
take me
won't you take me far away
HEY HEY HEY what's that game you play
will it make me richer?
cause I do not have a dime and I hate to waste your time
maybe I'm wrong but I think this whip is too long

now I was barely 21 lying in a ditch with a loaded gun
so I gave my heart away
but I got it back today in a velvet box stamped USA
now all the neighbors call me hero.

I was about to lose my mind so I buckled down and did some crime
but it wasn't what they taught me
hit the road in high pursuit now I'm on the run just like a suit
didn't know it was this easy

Take it all away
take me
won't you take me far away
HEY HEY HEY what's that game you play
will it make me a poor man?
cause I got an extra dime and I lose it every time
maybe I'm wrong but I think this whip is too long

HEY HEY HEY what's that game you play
will it make me richer?
cause I do not have a dime and I hate to waste your time
maybe I'm wrong but I think this whip is too long

No more, no more
see I can't find the time to crawl across the line
but I can't stay here...

No more, no more
see I can't find the time to crawl across the line
but I can't stay here till I die
3. Wiseblood (3:03)
When I was young some wise fool told me
live & learn but nothing comes for free
so I did what I could when I was able
to keep the truth away from our table

Young blood creepin what you need
Wiseblood shake em down to his knees
guaranteed

Well I never walked I just learned to fly
heaven or high was the way I stayed alive
I've seen them devils pound our bible
you saints and sinners are both my rival

Young blood creepin what you need
Wiseblood shake em down to his knees
aim to please

there's blood on the street but there's nothing to steal from me
cause I walk alone but at least I walk for free
I listen to few and I'm fueled by fire
guess now I'm old but not much wiser

Young blood creepin what you need
Wiseblood shake em down to his knees
Young blood creepin what you need
Wiseblood shake em down to his knees
guaranteed
4. Goodbye Windows (5:41)
Past regrets and future fears
Turns a boy to a man sooner than planned
All the same, the boy remains
Even though he's free, he can't fly with these heavy chains
Saw your mother yesterday
And she had these words to say like a judgement day

I think he shoulda known better
I think he shoulda known better

I'd rather have holes in my eyes
I'd rather have hole in my eyes
Then to watch your soul paralyed...goodbye
Your shining son no longer glows
Through the goodbye window
Through the goodbye window

Thirsty from the start
Very soon you learned the part of the redeemer, what a dreamer
So you're waiting on the call
Pretty soon you'll know it all, holy mountains fall

And he says...one might make you you lazy
2 might make you crawl
3 might make you crazy
And 4 ends it all

I'd rather have holes in my eyes
I'd rather have hole in my eyes
Then to watch your soul paralyed...goodbye
Your shining son no longer glows
Through the goodbye window
Through the goodbye window...

Should've known better...
5. Born Again for the Last Time (4:39)
When you live your life uptight untrusted
but their blind from the grind but only you can see
when the bones that you own have long been dusted
you realize who you're not supposed to be

I've been told things get better
Isolation grind
My life is Hazy Hazy Hazy
So I'm born again for the last time

when your life was lived fully cocked and loaded
but your soul was empty through and through
it makes me realize maybe you sold it
for the dream of a lifetime or maybe two...YEAH YOU

I've been told things get better
Isolation grind
My life is Hazy Hazy Hazy
So I'm born again for the last time

One last stand for this dying man
can we get a round of sympathy
I think it's too late he was never forward or straight
much like the one watching over me

Dizzy with greed now you've got everything you need
as you cling to the one who stands second to none
walls start to fall at the thought of it all
poorer by dawn then I was at the dawn; I'm gone...TAKE ME

I've been told things get better
Isolation grind
My life is Hazy Hazy Hazy
So I'm born again for the last time
6. Drowning in a Daydream (4:19)
There's a question mark in the place of a spark
that used to be an answer
aiming straight for the heart but you missed the mark and
the arrow turned to cancer

NOW you get so high but you still can't fly
and you wonder if you're really where you want to be
'cause the sun don't rise if you close your eyes
so you're sinking low, so I thought you'd like to know

like me, you're drowning in a daydream

There's a man who watches over me
'cause there's a man where I used to be
Mr. Tambourine play one more song for me
'cause I gotta leave, I lost what I believed...

there's a snake in the tree only hears what he sees
the years go by and you donk know why did you dake it all for granted?

NOW you get so low that you can't say no
and you wonder if you're really wwwhere you want to be
'cause the tide does rise and it's no surprise
that it washes you away, now you're far from home

Like me, you're drowning in a Daydream

There's a man who watches over me
There's a man where I used to be
Mr. Tambourine play one more song for me
'cause I gotta leave, I lost what I believed...

daddy's gonna miss you when you're gone
heavy gonna kick you when you're wrong
you got the blues and it makes you wonder
7. The Snake Has No Head (4:13)
Invalid at last smothers the working class
nihilist to be turns the scrape into a gash
walking tall and ignorant-this man is now a militant
deceiving the prophets confession to release this endless aggression

One is the soul Amplified Suicide
Keeps the masses terrified
But there's nothing to kill nothing to kill
Nothing left unsaid
Cause the snake has no head

But the body fills with greed and we spill when in need
and all the slaves are on probation growing fat in a comfortable nation
so the snake keeps on recruiting we one more royal shooting
nothing left to lose so we create another wound

One is the soul Amplified Suicide
Keeps the masses terrified
Nothing to kill nothing to kill nothing to kill
Nothing left unsaid
Cause the snake has no head

Fear of death is gain consuming the weak in shame
it's a power we can't see but it leaves ourselves to blame
shameless mourn another day slithering sins fade away
but the snake is just a pawn and remains when we are gone

One is the soul Amplified Suicide
Keeps the masses terrified
Nothing to kill nothing to kill nothing to kill
Nothing left unsaid
Cause the snake has no head
8. The Door (3:28)
break neck fat race world does it taste just like it should?
you only own what's etched in stone better get it while it's good
don't weep big city sheep I'm just trapped in your hemisphere
you tell me what I should know and I can tell you what you wanna hear

say tunnel vison there is no purpose served
by staying aboard this runaway wreck
while you're losing is on the curve
right there's the door

don't knock little can't rock he's the one huffin' gasoline
been keepin' time with a cloudy mind since they hit him with a limosine
still the lil' ones eat off the cold concrete
and the bleedin' hearts don't care
you tell me where I can go and I'll bet you that I see you there

say tunnel vison there is no purpose served
by staying aboard this runaway wreck
while you're losing is on the curve
right there's the door

don't deny, purify said the man on the golden throne
guilty times have made you lie and you realize you're all alone
so now you're throwin' stones at some old bag of bones
and you can't even knock him down
and there's one last thing that you should know
and I can tell you without a sound
Right there's the door
9. Man or Ash (5:13)
Far from reach how the serpents preach
life is a sin when the shepherds are breeding
In the quiet place force the mind to erase
so the people can pray to the distant drummer

These are primitive times
These are primitive times
These are primitive times
no care no less
divine surpass
be it man or...

Ashes cover the man which the decades demand
and paves the way for the sick and the dying
The devil hides his tail behind the virgin's veil
so the dead can dance to a distant drummer

These are primitive times
These are primitive times
These are primitive times
no care no less
divine surpass
be it man or...

Ashes fall like rain as the blind go insane
the shepherds fall to the feet of the martyr
Baptize with gasoline holy flame unholy scene
as the ashes rise to the distant drummer

These are primitive times
These are primitive times
These are primitive times
no care no less
divine surpass
be it man or ash

Not Man Or Ash...
10. Redemption City (4:50)
Lost in a dream high and wide
Whatever price to keep it by our side
The steps to the top are very steep
King of the hill when all are fast asleep

but I'm Stuck in between
and I know you know what I mean
What a pity...Redemption City

Broken hearts toast another round
And drink to the lost there's not a soul to be found
lonely boy says come what may
I hate to see it always end this way...

but I'm Stuck in between
and I know you know what I mean
What a pity...Redemption City

Simple words remind me
Cluttered room haunts me...come back yesterday

The soul is tired and I wanna go home
And close the curtain on everything you've known
But the curtain is high wide and long
And kills the dream, so we sing this simple song

Stuck in between
and I know you know what I mean
What a pity...Redemption City
What a pity
11. Wishbone (Some Tomorrow) (3:56)
torn from within disciple until the end
wasting time is how it's always been
kiss the floor steal the key lock the door there's many ways to decline
bonefide crucified in your prime that you left behind...

twighlight explodes in my time of the blind
you can't postpone some tomorrow
just one more wishbone

broken days pumping through your veins
shattered thoughts are gone but the reflection always stays
losing sight losing sight without a fight that once was a war
now you got 1000 scars and nothing to show them for

twighlight explodes in my time of the blind
you can't postpone some tomorrow
just one more wishbone

in between surrender sight unseen
split the seam when no one intervenes
feel the kick from the hearless heretic that once made you shine
now you're grounded down for the last time shut your eyes to the crime

twighlight explodes in my time of the blind
you can't postpone some tomorrow
just one more wishbone

just one more wishbone
12. Fuel (2:39)
here we stand before the call accused of fire,
it's too cold and you're too old for me it's time to expire

serve to see of what could be
burn the freak and set him free
outta sight outta sight outta time
and you're way outta line

they cool the tongue to tame the flame
we burn the soul and still remain
they freeze the tongue to stay the same
control me...

cast the stone when in Rome thick as a brick and the lams alone
bend the knee but don't you pray for me cause I fly for free

finding flame without a name
holy sound and no sustain
outta sight outta sight outta time
and you're way outta line

they cool the tongue to tame the flame
we burn the soul and still remain
they freeze the tongue to stay the same
control me...

free to run deaf and numb lock and load unholy son
within reach bleach the leach he's a smoking gun

serve to see of what could be
burn the freak and set him free
outta sight outta sight outta time
and you're way outta line

they cool the tongue to tame the flame
we burn the soul and still remain
they freeze the tongue to stay the same
control me...
