Desperate Measures Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Make Me An Offer (5:48)
Here comes the tricky day, one to keep an eye on, jewel, you can talk in your sleep
Cause i've got better things on my mind.
Life’s a peddling role play, in this business sport and scam. High rise and on the lam any which way you can……. Somebody make me an offer.

Falling behind the deadline, quick to point the finger. Hands full or even tied, everything starting to linger. So what cha gonna do for me, besides take me for a ride.
How ya living you old punk everyone knows you lied. Somebody make me an offer.
So you think I should fall like a tragedy? You better get to dreams straight before you wake up.

In this game of high and low: you went way to low. You’re like a bum with a cup, and you know what I mean. I’m going to have the last laugh.
2. All About Dope (4:27)
Time bomb against will, and all you feel are chills. You’re doing more time and losing more mind.
Still it’s something you can’t find.
Keep on trying to win, nut the itch keeps doing you in. you’re calling it quits, but the shoes fits, and you don’t know where to begin.

You know you got it all wrong.
The lower east side of New York City. A sob story that’ll make you pity.
Boys In a game with no one to blame but himself and its all his shame. There is no answer in search for a high. No matter what you endure, no matter what you try……cause it’s all about dope.

Here's the story about a boy and his plan.
Trying to be a man. Buyin' bags for the price of ten, but his arms won’t mend.
Within the pleasure is pain and all the pleasure is pain. Still nothing remains and all the pleasure is pain.
3. Soft Way Out (3:29)
The kid is getting older, his time is bitter and colder.
All work and no play makes jack a dull boy.
His time for mind is toy to destroy.
A cop out, on ignorance without a fight or a second chance, you think it’s the only way out, in bedroom walls with in a gun in your mouth? NO! You leave behind the guilt. Shame, all the pain.
You’re walking out the door cause you can’t take it anymore.
And all the time, you try to find what’s inside.
Soft way out.
Listen to me when I talk to you
4. Stand For (3:41)
No matter what I say, you try to find a difference.
You sit and laugh as if to say you’ve already gone the distance.
So tell me boss, are you the first to reach the plane.

I can’t possibly think of what it is that has kept you sane. Tell me about it-what do you stand for?
Tell me about it-what do you stand for? What’s gonna be your purpose.
No one should have to plan day by day living if true respect is the helping hand. Don’t try to cut away from my stance. Your first attempt will be your last chance. Remember your fate is chosen.

It’s not my stubborn illusion. Keep on laughing, mock and swoon. It’s coming with age, your stage of doom-boyee. The kids have gone their own way.
Seems that they have nothing to say. On the outside, beaten and sore, but what’s inside is the heart of the core.
5. No Heroes (3:46)
Can you feel my suffering? Or any of my pain. Those sleepless nights drove me insane.
Their dishonesty took me away.
Yet they still had nothing to say. So, you’ll ruin me huh? We’ll see about that.

I’ve got the soul of a dragon that’ll burn you boy. Ill play with you like a child plays with his toys, separate the men from the boys.
So you follow-you follow your hero. Cause he ain’t no hero, no way. So you follow-you follow your hero. Cause he ain’t no hero, mikey play. Follow.

You take away my treasure, and we’ll go to war.
Either you or me have got to go-so we’ll go to war-if that’s the way you want it.
If that’s what you need, we’ll go to war-if that’s the way you want it.
If that’s what you need, we’ll go to war. So c’mon, you’re no hero. Take me on, you’re no hero. You are gone, you’re no hero.
6. Kingpin (3:52)
All hail the kingpin, the one with soul, who’s in control. With the poker face stare, never concerned, always giving orders.
Do you know this man?
Well if you don’t I think you should. Shake his hand; he’s the modern day robin hood.

Walk along the wire, the risk is always higher. Walking fine lines helps you pass the time.
He doesn’t care what you have to say cause he knows that he’s getting paid. Who’s knows any other way?
Go for broke-do what cha gotta do.

You know what i'm saying. Go for broke-do what cha gotta do. You know what I say.
You can go for yours, but you better have some respect. Cause you don’t want a man like that to connect-NO.
He justifies-eye to an eye. Take his side or go for a ride.
7. Who's To Blame (4:05)
I know this girl ain't tame and guess who’s to blame.
She’s not being fair, she don’t care.
I know it’s not my last chance, but it feels that way. I’ve got desires, but she’s shutting me out.

You see the pleasure is turning to pain.
I miss you, oh I miss you bad.
More and more I go mad. I miss you OH SO BAD. More than I ever had. Momma didn’t raise no fool, you know I always played you cool.
When I feel your touch nothing remains. Don’t try to run away from me, while I try to believe.
I’m making my vows for eternity and now you say my heart’s got to bleed.
8. Ball Hugger (3:22)
Ball hugger, ball hugger, ball hugger, Bo! This one goes out to all the hard-asses who think their holier than thou. I get a kick out of you when I go out. Playing in the sandbox with the well-endowed. OH SO PROUD. Kiss that kiss-hug that hug. A ball hugger’s work is never done. Well don’t forget we remember everything you say. You look and feel like you have lost ya way. Like a fool you answer all of my ways. You find a fool and live for another day. You get along in tricks, just to get your kicks. Do everything I said just to get along. One heart that’s cold, one heart that’s sold. Hey lets watch that punk try to stand proud (well-endowed) Well don’t forget we remember everything that you say. With your look and appeal like the undead. One heart that’s hypocritical, a personality that’s cynical. You don’t want to rest yet, you don’t want to rest your way
9. Two Minute Warning (2:01)
10. The Future (Ain't What It Used To Be) (7:26)
Uncle Sam is in his rocking chair. His ageless face is all a gaunt and weared (sic).
He tries to find solutions.
We all support you with that honest hand. Under the table, just like we don’t care.

So what’s a future that’s desperate?
OH NO, I won’t wait. What’s to make in an honest game?
You gonna break in your claim to fame.
Satisfaction or a shattered life?

And so you have yourself another go, but it’s just another wasted day.
A life full of dreams ain’t all what it seems. Caught like a rat in the middle of a deathtrap.
While life to you is on hold, everyone seems cold. With no one to rest your morals or laurels to.
Cock a doodle-do. But you can’t feel it, but you can’t feel it. It doesn’t feel the same way. Still you keep trying, still you keep trying. It’s just another wasted day. Just another wasted day.
