American Capitalist Lyrics

Submitted by level irwany
1. American Capitalist (3:28)
I'm a red blooded
Rough neck
Son of a bitch
I'm a goddamn
American capitalist
I've got a kill 'em all
Give a shit
License to hate
I'm that one shot
One kill
Bringer of pain

I don't wanna believe I'm empty
And I don't want to admit I'm wrong
I don't wanna regret who I've become
(When I'm)
I'm an American
Capitalist
American
Capitalist

Yeah war is the answer
Like I told you before
You're a coward
With no power
Just a stain on the floor
If you're a man
Be a man
Stop running your lips
Round three
No mercy
It's the way of the fist

I don't wanna believe I'm empty
And I don't want to admit I'm wrong
I don't wanna regret who I've become
(When I'm)
I'm an American
Capitalist
American
Capitalist

I don't wanna believe I'm empty
And I don't want to admit I'm wrong
I don't wanna regret who I've become
(When I'm)
I'm an American

I don't wanna believe I'm empty
And I don't want to admit I'm wrong
I don't wanna regret who I've become
(When I'm)
I'm an American
Capitalist
American
Capitalist

American
2. Under and Over It (3:51)
Yeah Go!

Did you hear the one about me being a punk?
Did you hear the one about me being a drunk?
Did you hear the one about me losing my nerve?
Or how I'm just another fucking sheep in the herd?
Did you hear about the money, how it made me change?
So funny to me, all the time that they waste.
Did you hear the one about me giving a shit?
Cause if I ever did I don't remember it.

You can be me and I will be you.
You can live just like a star.
I'll take my sanity, you take the fame.
I'm under and over it all.
(I'm under and over it.)

Did you hear the one about me playing the game?
Selling my soul and changing my name.
Did you hear the one about me being a prick?
Did you know I don't care? You can suck my...
Did you hear the one about me trying to die?
Fist in the air and a finger to the sky.
Do I care if you hate me? Do you wanna know the truth?
C'est la vie....adiós....good riddance....fuck you!

You can be me and I will be you.
You can live just like a star.
I'll take my sanity, you take the fame.
I'm under and over it all.
(I'm under and over it.)
I, I, I'm under and over it.
I, I, I'm under and over it.

You can be me and I will be you.
You can live just like a star.
I'll take my sanity, you take the fame.
I'm under and over it all.
(I'm under and over it.)
I'm under and over it all.
(I'm under and over it.)
I, I, I'm under and over it.
I, I, I'm under and over it.

4. Coming Down (4:01)
It’s caving in around me
What I thought was solid ground
I tried to look the other way
But I couldn’t turn around

It’s OK for you to hate me
For all the things I’ve done
I’ve made a few mistakes
But I'm not the only one

Step away from the ledge
I'm coming down

I could never be
What you want me to
You pull me under
To save yourself (save yourself)

You will never see
What’s inside of me
I pull you under
Just to save myself

Was there ever any question
On how much I could take
You kept feeding me your bullshit
Hoping I would break

Is there anybody out there?
Is there anyone who cares?
Is there anybody listening
Will they hear my final prayers?

Step away from the ledge
I'm coming down

I could never be
What you want me to
You pull me under
To save yourself (save yourself)

You will never see
What’s inside of me
I pull you under
Just to save myself (save myself)

It’s caving in around me (caving in)
It's tearing me apart (tearing me)
It’s all coming down around me (coming down)
Does anyone, anyone
Care at all

I will never be
What you want me to
You pull me under
I pull you under

I could never be
What you want me to
You pull me under
To save yourself (save yourself)

You will never see
What’s inside of me
I pull you under
Just to save myself
5. Menace (3:31)
Oh yeah, fuck it!

Yeah!

Oh
I've got a killer's blood
Burning deep inside my veins
(Down in my veins)
Don't expect you to understand
I was born without a name
(No name)
I see right through you, your opinions are a fucking joke
I crucify you, on a silver spoon I hope you choke

I'm tired of trying to please the world that spins around me
This time I'm doing it for me and me alone
I don't need anyone, don't think I ever did
Not trying to be selfish, just doing what I know

I'm a menace!

Right!

Oh
I'll fade the fuck away
Swear to God that I don't care
(I swear to Christ)
I'll die a lonely death 'cause I know that life ain't fair
(ain't fair at all)
I can't pretend that I am someone that I'm not
I live for me, myself
You can't convince me that I'm wrong

I'm tired of trying to please the world that spins around me
This time I'm doing it for me and me alone
I don't need anyone, don't think I ever did
Not trying to be selfish, just doing what I know

I'm a menace!

Right!

Yeah!

I'm tired of trying to please the world that spins around me
(Why?)
This time I'm doing it for me and me alone
(All for me)
I don't need anyone, don't think I ever did
Not trying to be selfish, just doing what I know

I'm a menace!

I'm tired of trying to please the world that spins around me
(Why?)
This time I'm doing it for me and me alone
(All for me)
I don't need anyone, don't think I ever did
Not trying to be selfish, just doing what I know

I'm a menace!

Fucking menace!

Oh menace!
6. Generation Dead (3:43)
I look around and all I see is evil
Walking dead disguised as real people
It's kill or be killed 'cause life is not forever
It comes apart and then it falls together

I am what you made me
'Til death do I part

It's the world I've grown to know
Unforgiving and so cold
Take it away
Take it away
I don't want it

It's a life I'm forced to live
I've got nothing more to give
Take it away
Take it away
I don't want it anymore

We're generation dead
We're dead

You see yourself as such a fucking shepherd
But you trip the blind and then you curse the leper
Do you really want my true opinion?
You've taken more than you've ever given

You are what you are
Until death do you part

It's the world I've grown to know
Unforgiving and so cold
Take it away
Take it away
I don't want it

It's a life I'm forced to live
I've got nothing more to give
Take it away
Take it away
I don't want it anymore

Generation dead

It's the world I've grown to know
Unforgiving and so cold
Take it away
Take it away
I don't want it

It's a life I'm forced to live
I've got nothing more to give
Take it away
Take it away
I don't want it anymore

It's the world I've grown to know
Unforgiving and so cold
Take it away
Take it away
I don't want it

It's a life I'm forced to live
I've got nothing more to give
Take it away
Take it away
I don't want it anymore

We're generation dead
We're dead
7. Back for More (3:22)
Let's get it on!
It's time to get in the game,
You gotta fight 'til it hurts and then you do it again
Let's tear it up!
I'm staying straight to the core, ain't no room for second place, go big or go home!

Rise!
It's dog eat dog
Rise!
Man versus beast
Rise!
The strong will survive
Rise!
I've got no time for the Weak

It's time to rise up, man up, get back up, never been and won't be broken
Dust off and then come back for more
You've gotta reach down, dig deep, break ground,
Show them all you won't be beaten
Brush it off and then come back for more!
Come back for more

It's do or die!
Time to settle the score, gotta give it all you got and then you give it some more
There will be blood
You've gotta fight 'til you break, talk a lot of trash and step up to the plate

Rise!
Refuse to give in
Rise!
Ashes to Dust
Rise!
Make 'em remember your name
Rise!
'Cause in yourself you can trust

It's time to rise up, man up, get back up, never been and won't be broken
Dust off and then come back for more
You've gotta reach down, dig deep, break ground,
Show them all you won't be beaten
Brush it off and then come back for more!
Come back for more

Rah!

It's time to rise up, man up, get back up, never been and won't be broken
Dust off and then come back for more
You've gotta reach down, dig deep, break ground,
Show them all you won't be beaten
Brush it off and then come back for more
Come back for more

Rah!
8. Remember Everything (4:38)
Oh dear mother
I love you
I'm sorry
I wasn't good enough
Dear father
Forgive me
'Cause in your eyes
I just never added up
In my heart I know I failed you
But you left me here alone

If I could hold back the rain
Would you numb the pain?
'Cause I remember
Everything
If I could help you forget
Would you take my regrets?
'Cause I remember
Everything

Oh dear brother
Just don't hate me
For never standing by you
Or being by your side
Dear sister
Please don't blame me
I only did what I thought was truly right

It's a long and lonely road
When you know you'll walk alone

If I could hold back the rain
Would you numb the pain?
'Cause I remember
Everything
If I could help you forget
Would you take my regrets?
'Cause I remember
Everything

I feel like running away
I'm still so far from home
You say that I'll never change
But what the fuck do you know?
I'll burn it all to the ground
Before I let you in
Please forgive me
I can't forgive you now

I remember
Everything

If I could hold back the rain
Would you numb the pain?
'Cause I remember
Everything
If I could help you forget
Would you take my regrets?
'Cause I remember
Everything

It all went by so fast
I still can't change the past
I always will remember
Everything
If we could start again
Would that have changed the end?
We remember
Everything

Oh everything
9. Wicked Ways (3:07)
I should've seen this
From a mile away
I should've never let you
Get that deep inside
You're an actress
I can't believe a word
You'd say anything
To get anywhere in life

Stumble back to where you came from
Wide awake and falling on your face
You've got an evil wicked way
Of saying I love you, I love you
Tear away from everything you are
You've got an evil wicked way about you, I hate you!

Like a virus
That spreads throughout my veins
You're incurable and such a waste of time
You're an angel
But only in your head,
You'll hurt anyone
To get anything in life

Slither back to where you came from
Wide awake and falling on your face
You've got an evil wicked way
Of saying I love you, I love you
Tear away from everything you are
You've got an evil wicked way about you, I hate you!

Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?

Wide awake and falling on your face
You've got an evil wicked way
Of saying I love you, I love you
Tear away from everything you are
You've got an evil wicked way about you, I hate you!

Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
10. If I Fall (3:56)
I owe you nothing
I've given everything and more
I stand for something
The blood on my hands, the broken bones, I live it

Knife in my back, you can't take it back
Eye for an eye it's cut and dry
I'll do what I know, reap what I sow
While you're waiting for me to fail

(If I fall)
If I fall, if I fall
I'm dragging everybody down
If I fall I will take everybody down
(If I fall)
If I fall, if I fall
I'm taking everybody out
If I fall I will take everybody down

I'm not a voice of reason
Never been too big on fate
Seeing is believing
You run from it all, you stumble and crawl, I hate it

Knife in your back, I won't take it back
Live and let die, the art of a lie
You do what you know, you reap what you sow
And I'll be waiting for you to fail

(If I fall)
If I fall, if I fall
I'm dragging everybody down
If I fall I will take everybody down
(If I fall)
If I fall, if I fall
I'm taking everybody out
If I fall I will take everybody down

Heeeyyyahh [x5]

If I fall, if I fall
I'm taking everybody down
If I fall I will!

(If I fall)
If I fall, if I fall
I'm dragging everybody down
If I fall I will take everybody down
(If I fall)
If I fall, fuck you all
I'm taking everybody out
If I fall I will take everybody down

(If I fall, if I fall, if I fall)
If I fall I will
11. 100 Ways to Hate (3:21)
Hate your goddamn, motherfucking, shitty ass band
Hate the way you've got my back while you're holding out your hand
Hate the way you pussies talk shit, hiding on the web
Just the fact you think you know me makes me fucked up in the head
Hate your nails, hate your hair, hate the fact I even care
Hate the way you said you loved me but you fucking weren't there
Hate your friends, hate your folks, hate your stupid fucking hopes
Ain't no way I'd try to change when the whole thing was a joke

I...hate...you...
That's an understatement
I...hate...you...
For who you are

I hate you
And all you stand for
I don't care
Anymore
I gave you
100 chances
You gave me
A 100 ways to hate

Hate your face, hate your lies and the blank look in your eyes
Hate your needs, hate your wants, hate the way you look and talk
Hate your voice, makes me cringe every time I hear you speak
It's uncomfortable to know you share the same air as me
Hate your lack of common sense and I'm tired of compromising
Take a good look in the end, 'cause it's just on the horizon
I've been wrong about a lot of shit, this I know is true
There's a 100 fucking things that I hate about you

I...hate...you...
That's an understatement
I...hate...you...
For who you are

I hate you
And all you stand for
I don't care
Anymore
I gave you
100 chances
You gave me
A 100 ways to hate

I hate you
100 ways
I don't care
100 ways to hate
I gave you
A million chances
You gave me
A 100 ways to hate

A 100 ways
A 100 ways to hate
