Slang Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. Truth? (3:00)
"Truth?"

I've been burning
And dousing the flames
I feel the whiplash
Of the backlash on my face
I melt to sleep at night
But I wake to trip the day

Never for you never for me
Would I kiss your feet of clay
I'm still alive and so should I
Soak up the wave of compromise

Am I the victim of youth
Is this the truthh
Why don't you tell me
Why don't you tell me

There's no conscience
In charity or shame
The voice deceive me
But believe me its the same
I see the black in white
And the colour in the gray

Better for me better for you
Gonna bleach it all away
I'm still alive and so should I
Soak up the wave of compromise

I see the scars, I hear the lies
So what's the truth
Why don't you tell me
2. Turn to Dust (4:21)
"Turn To Dust"

The concentration drifts
In and out of me
Conversation slides away
Turn and face the change in apathy
Take a rise to fall

Won't you save me
Don't you blame me
I got the feel that I'm gone - Turn to dust

Sentence
Rape me
Segregate me
I got the fear that I am gone - Turn to dust

Slave or sympathy it atrophies
Save but ancient hearts
Hiding scars and knives in symphonies
Still we rise to fall

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]
3. Slang (2:37)
"Slang"

Sittin' Dark
Getting taken
'Cause I said
Something lewd in a
Low down accent

Yeah Yeah Yeah
Kinda love those eyes
I wanna get down honey
But I ain't your guy

I'll rap'n ruch
'N jam it up
But count me out
Cause all I ever wanna get is slang

Slang with me - I don't wanna get my hands dirty
Slang with me - I just wanna get soakin' wet
Slang with me - I don't wanna get my hands dirty
All I ever wanna get is slang

What's affectin' my condition
What's about to knock you down
Said wrapped 'n bound and a goddamn
I'd love to get connected
But it's outta my hands

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

It's my intention to be your obsession
It's my obsession to be your addiction

[Repeat Chorus]
4. All I Want Is Everything (5:20)
"All I Want Is Everything"

I don't know how to leave you
And I don't know how to stay
I've got things that I must tell you
That I don't know how to say

The man behind these empty words
Is crying out in shame
Holding on to this sinking ship
When nothing else remains

All I want is everything
Am I asking too much?
All I want is everything
Like the feel of your touch
But all I have are yesterdays
Tomorrow never comes

It's hard to hold your head up
When you're kneeling down to pray
And the talking dooesn't come easy now
When the words get in the way
And if you could see what's going on
Behind these private eyes
The truth would look so easy now
But I'm running out of lies

[Repeat Chorus]

[Guitar Solo]

You think the shadow of doubt
Is hangin' over my head
It's just an angel whose wings hide the sun
And it's myself I betray
I can not wish this away
Took my chance now the damage is done

All I want is everything
Am I asking too much?
All I want is everything
Like the feel, the feel of your touch
When all I have are yesterdays
Tomorrow never comes

Ooh, oooh
Ooh, oooh
5. Work It Out (4:49)
"Work It Out"

Day and night black and white
You take it all for granted
I'm the one who turns you on

When you don't know where you belong
And nothin' seems to matter
I'm the one who's holding on

It's alright to be wrong
All we need's a little time
But nothing here can last that long

We show the world a brand new face
It's taken us all this time
All this time
All of this doubt
We get to work it out
All of this doubt
We get to work it out

Yesterday lost your way
Still looking for an answer
I'm the one who holds the key

When you don't know where you belong
And nothing seems to matter
I'll unlock this mystery

[Repeat Chorus]

[Guitar Solo]

[Repeat Chorus]

All of this doubt
Day and night - Black and White
Take it all for granted
We get to work it out
I'm the one who turns you on
Turns you on - Turns you on
All of this doubt

When you don't know where you belong
And nothin' seems to matter
We get to work it out
I'm the one who's holdin' on
Holdin' on - Holdin' on
6. Breathe a Sigh (4:06)
"Breathe A Sigh"

Let me down slow and easy
Cause there ain't nothin' I can do
I hope and pray my faith won't leave me
When it comes down to me and you

Try a little tenderness
I die a little
For a long lost sweet caress

You lyin' next to me
Fulfilled some destiny
I wanna cry
But I breathe a sigh

Just a little bit of letting go
I don't want you to know
I wanna cry
But I breathe a sigh

Overflow of emotion
And a hurt that'll never heal
If you close the door forever
The fate of pain is sealed

Try a little tenderness
I die a little
For a long lost sweet caress

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

I more than long for your affection
I tell you know that ain't so
Not even gentle persuasion
Is ever gonna let me go
Won't you let me breathe

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]
7. Deliver Me (3:04)
Send "Deliver Me" Ringtone to your Cell
8. Gift of Flesh (3:48)
"Gift Of Flesh"

I am all destiny, a trade
A grain of sand
I am the lesson to be learned
I take the throat of innocence
And leave decay
I stain the way for all to see

No fear, no voice, no reason
In God no guiding light
When all the guilt that's in your head
Turns its back and plays for dead
You scorch the earth and torch the sky
Conscience low with head held high

Indulge and multiply
And sacrifice
As lack of breath chokes underground
Divulge degenerate
The darker side
From windows watch the screaming sky

[Repeat Chorus]

When all the guilt that's in your head
Turns its back and plays for dead
You scorch the earth and torch the sky
Conscience low with head held high

From all the truth comes all the shame
The curse of flesh just takes its aim
On hallowed ground and tortured sky
Walk in fear with spirits high
9. Blood Runs Cold (4:26)
"Blood Runs Cold"

I heard this line one time 'bout tryin' to save the world
But have you ever tried to save yourself
A wide-eyed suicide drive
Remains a fake
As if you'd ever
Ever go and make the same mistake
Strung out as the night comes crawlin'
Your halo of thorns is fallin'

Blood runs cold
I feel it in my bones
But you don't know your time is up
Blood runs cold

Somebody somewhere is screamin' out the words
But do they ever really ease the pain
I guess what I'm trying to say
Is whose life is it anyway because livin'
Living is the best revenge
You can play
This fall from grace
I see your face
It's over

[Repeat Chorus]

From you love was kind
Resolved left scarred and blind
Wasted and naked in the wings

Denying twist of fate
Demanding Heaven's gate
Lying in wait above the wind

Strung out as the night comes crawlin'
Your halo of thorns is fallin'

[Repeat Chorus]

Blood runs cold
Blood runs cold
10. Where Does Love Go When It Dies (4:04)
"Where Does Love Go When It Dies"

Could you ever steal a prayer to deny your God
Could you ever buy your love and not count the cost
Could you ever take a life when all was lost
And would it ever be enough

Could you bite the hand that feeds you and then ask for more
Could you kiss the wound that bleeds spit it on the floor
Could you open up your heart then close the door
And would it ever be enough

Every word you whisper
All the tears you hide
You die for love when it's alive
But where does love go when it dies

If you came across your dream would you walk on by
Hold a candle to the wind and just let it die
And is there room inside your mind for one more try
And would it ever be enough

I watch the time go rushing by it's like an ocean wave
Showing you no mercy throwing dirt upon your grave
You're drowning in the darkness and you're blinded by the light
And there ain't no prayer that's gonna save you now

If you woke up from your sleep blood on your hands
Would you wash the pain away no one understands
There must be someone out there who can help you breathe again
And would it ever be enough

[Repeat Chorus]
11. Pearl of Euphoria (6:21)
"Pearl Of Euphoria"

Your price, name the time
The suspect or the crime
The shadow of my gun
Get down or you can run

Feed the demon, kiss the flame, feel your desire
Empty room, turn the key
You're never alone
When you're with me

Temptation, break the vow
Cut flesh from the sacred cow
Unchain the tiger, kiss the flame, feel your desire
Feed the demon, kiss the flame, feel your desire

Soaked in fear, the curtain falls
Religion within these walls
Mystify my soul beliefs
Confession is my release

Feed the demon, kiss the flame, feel your desire
Unchain the tiger, crucify, feed your desire
Pearl of euphoria
Pearl of euphoria
