Monochrome Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Swallowing Everything (3:54)
Hanging out with all these dicks
Still collecting tokens
Knock 'em back, you're making noises
You live in the moment
Wonder you're not morning sick
Making conversation
This dull arithmetic, all these stock exchanges

Swallowing everything
Sinker, hook and line
Paralyzed, anesthetized
Wasted one more time

Swabbing now in duplicate
So mystique consultants
They all figured unequipped, cannot be insulted

Swallowing everything
Sinker, hook and line
Paralyzed, anesthetized
Wasted one more time
2. Brand New (4:10)
They're shaking hands with the unemployed
Can't talk to her, but I keep on trying
All palms up, lift that weight
Gotta get out tonight
Look great, feel great

Lord, I need somebody just like you
Somebody I can talk to
Somebody just like you
3. Bury Me (4:30)
Bury me alive and pretend I'm awake
Like you lost me out somewhere in the highway
I thought you were decent
Everything was easy
Every single word was true

I left all them all
I believe I was right
I might start thinking too much,
When I rather deny it

I thought you were decent
Everything was easy
Every single word was true

I'm alright
I'm alright now
4. Monochrome (3:49)
I can fill in your blanks here
Just like reading your mind
Everybody's got opinions,
Well I know I've got mine

We're running in place, aint you tired?
Just make up your mind there
We're only running in place
Hey, are you tired?

I know you don't deserve it
You needed someone to love
One more opportunity for somebody to love

We're running in place, aint you tired?
Just make up your mind there
We're only running in place
Hey, are you tired?

Will you disappear when the world is here?
Will you run for cover?
Have you taken aim, found someone to blame?
Does it make it feel better?
You're alright now, you're better
Whatever

We're running in place, aint you tired?
Just make up your mind there
We're only running in place
Hey, are you tired?

We're running in place
Just make up your mind there
We're only running place
Hey, are you tired?

You're my monochrome
Yes, my monochrome
5. On Your Way Down (4:13)
You have worked your way up to the top
Thought that you would make the whole world stop
Up to Venus, Mars and Jupiter
Bet your feet don't even touch the Earth

On your way
On your way down
On your way
You're on your way down

Stumbling drunk now with authority
You've taken all that you can take from me

On your way
On your way down
On your way
You're on your way down

Are you lying to yourself?
There's no right or wrong
No heaven and no hell
Now you're losing all your friends
To surround yourself with
All those dull "yes" men

On your way
On your way down
You're on your way
On your way down

You're on your way
6. Money Shot (3:14)
Dirty pictures, watch as she gets paid
The money shot
Greatest hits on the mattress are
What she's got

So relive her of right where you belong
You want to be wanted
But nothing is as good as you thought it would be
You still get the money

The crush gets physical, he's got no heart
You don't mind
Shakes your confidence, he's looking out
Don't know what he'll find

Well I'll sit back and watch
While you take it off
Like a veteran actress

So relieve her of right here you belong
You want to be wanted

So believable, you can't take it off
Now you know you're wanted
Everything is good, like you knew it would be
Now you're wanted
7. Gone (3:31)
Hey son, where you think you going?
We ain't done, hang tight
Everything could vanish overnight

None of your friends ever did anything
Now you're dead
You are dead
Hey now you are gone
I can't feel the sun
Now you are dead and you're gone

Get a grip
Coughing up the shit that you've been fed
None of your friends hang around anyhow
Now you're dead
You are dead

Hey, now you are gone
I can't feel the sun
Now you dead and you're gone
Hey now you are gone
We're all moving on
Now you are gone

Alright, just keep it move moving
Cause there's an end in sight
What was that you said?
Well that don't really matter now
You'll be dead

Hey now you are gone
Can't you feel sun?
Now you are gone
Hey now you are gone
We're all moving on
Now that you are dead and you're gone
You're gone
Gone
8. Almost Out of Sight (4:16)
Don't ever show them how
That weight might drag you down
And you don't feel like trading places
Your false humility to be who they want you to be
But you can't stand their smiling faces

It's only economics, and you enjoy this
You get by
Now you're taking off
Man you are as high as a kite
Hey now you're blowing up
You're almost out of sight

Well nothing lasts forever
Try keeping it together
Your highlight reel is running short
You know they've seen it all
Like any miracle
You are as easily ignored

It's only economics, but you enjoy it
Wave goodbye, now you're taking off
Man you are as high as a kite
Hey now you're blowing up
You're almost out of sight

All these claims all made you want everybody
Just take it in
It's only economics
It's time to wave goodbye
Now you're taking off
Man you are as high as a kite
Hey now you're blowing up
You're almost out of sight

Now you're taking off
Man you are as high as a kite
Hey now you're blowing up
You're almost out of sight
9. Howl (1:04)
10. 410 (3:47)
Been trading insults all night long
Now we're just getting started
Well I think we got it
I see you talk, I see you opening your mouth
You just spit it out

All night long
All night
All night long
Are you alive?
I'm alive
I am alive
Alive

It's time to go you know
Well I let it go, good
I swear not another word
I'm a problem solver luvin'
I got a 4 gauge shotgun
I'll kill us both immediately
You can hold on, so long

All night long
All night
All night long
Are you alive?
I'm alive
I am alive
Alive

Are you alive?
I'm alive
I am alive
Alive
11. Goodbye (5:33)
It can't be hard to find a way to make your mark
Just light yourself on fire,
I'll sound a smoke alarm
Still life will pass you by
You're gone without a trace
Might slow down just enough
To spit right in your face

Goodbye and so long
Goodbye
Now it's time to say goodbye
It might be time to say goodbye

That's entertainment son
You know your death ain't news
We love an accident
Well I'd love to know it's you
I spent three dollars on
These non-stick garden gloves
So I could bury you without blistering

Goodbye, so long
Goodbye
Now it's time to say goodbye

They don't miss you at all
They think you're an asshole

Goodbye, so long
Goodbye
Now it's time to say goodbye
Might be time to say goodbye

Now it's time to say
Goodbye
