Submitted by level Mefisto
1. Ain't My Bitch (5:04)
Outta my way, outta my day
Out of your mind and into mine
Into no one, into not one
Into your step but out of time
Headstrong, what's wrong?
I've already heard this song before

You arrived, but now it's time to kiss your ass goodbye

Dragging me down, why you around? So useless
It ain't my fall, it ain't my call
It ain't my bitch...
It ain't my bitch

Down on the sun, down and no fun
Down and out, where the hell you been?
Damn it all down, damn it unbound
Damn it all down to hell again
Stand tall, can't fall
Never even bend at all before

You arrived, but now it's time to kiss your ass goodbye

Dragging me down, why you around? So useless
It ain't my fall, it ain't my call
It ain't my bitch

Outta my way!

Outta my way, outta my day
Out of your mind and into mine
Into no one, into not one
Into your step but out of time
Headstrong, what's wrong?
I've already heard this song before

You arrived, but now it's time to kiss your ass goodbye
...and now it's time to kiss your ass goodbye...

Dragging me down while you around? So useless
It ain't my fall, it ain't my call
It ain't my bitch
No way but down, why you're around? No fooling
It ain't my smile, it ain't my style
It ain't my bitch... oh, it ain't mine
Ain't mine, your kind
You're stepping out of time
Ain't mine, your kind
You're stepping out of time
Taking me down, why you around? No fooling
It ain't my fall, it ain't my call
It ain't my bitch, you ain't mine
2. 2x4 (5:28)
I'm gonna make you, shake you, take you
I'm gonna be the one who breaks you
Put the screws to you, yeah, my way
Yeah, come on and come on, come and make my day...
...Make my day

Got some hell to pay, I steal your thunder
The joy of violent movement, pulls you under
Bite the bullet, well hard
Yeah, but I die harder, so go too far...
...Too far

Friction, fusion, retribution
I can't hear you, talk to me
I can't hear you, so talk to me
I can't hear you, are you talking to me?
I can't hear you, are you talking to me?
I can't hear you, time to meet my Lord
I can't hear you, talk to two by four

Yeah, I'm gonna make you, shake you, take you
I'm gonna be that one who breaks you
Put the screws to you... my way
Hey, come on and come on, come and make my day...
...Make my day

Friction, fusion, retribution
I can't hear you, talk to me
I can't hear you, come talk to me
I can't hear you, are you talking to me?
I can't hear you, are you talking to me?
I can't hear you, time to meet my Lord
I can't hear you, talk to two by four, yeah

Yeah, talk to two by four
It don't take no more... come on, yeah

Friction, fusion, retribution
I'm gonna make you talk to me
I'm gonna trick you so talk to me
I can't hear you, are you talking to me?
I can't hear you, you talking to me
I can't hear you, time to meet my Lord
I can't hear you, talk to... talk to two by four
She don't take no more
3. The House Jack Built (6:38)
Open door, so I walk inside
Close my eyes, find my place to hide
And I shake as I take it in
Let the show begin...

Open my eyes just to have them close again
Well on my way, but on my way to where I've been
It swallows me as it takes me in its fog
I twist away as I give this world the nod

Open door, so I walk inside
Close my eyes, find my place to hide
And I shake as I take it in
Let the show begin!

Open my eyes just to have them closed once again
Don't want control as it takes me down and down and down again
Is that the moon or just a light that lights this dead-end street?
Is that you there or just another demon that I meet?

The higher you are, the farther you fall
The longer the walk, the farther you crawl
My body, my temple, this temple, it tilts
Step into the house that Jack built

The higher you are, the farther you fall
The longer the walk, the farther you crawl
My body, my temple, this temple, it tilts
Yes, this is the house that Jack built

Open door, yes, I walk inside
Swallow me so the pain subsides
And I shake as I take the sin
Let the show begin...

The higher you are, the farther you fall
The longer the walk, the farther you crawl
My body, my temple, this temple, it tilts
Yes, this is the house that Jack built

The higher you are, the farther you fall
The longer the walk, the farther you crawl
My body, my temple, this temple, it tilts
Yes, I am, I am, I am...

Open my eyes
It swallows me
Is that you there?
I twist away...
4. Until It Sleeps (4:27)
Where do I take this pain of mine?
I run, but it stays right by my side
So tear me open, pour me out
There's things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me until it sleeps...

Just like the curse, just like the stray
You feed it once and now it stays
Now it stays... so tear me open, but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me until I'm clean

It grips you, so hold me
It stains you, so hold me
It hates you, so hold me
It holds you, so hold me
Until it sleeps...

So tell me why you've chosen me?
Don't want your grip, don't want your greed
Don't want it... I'll tear me open, make you gone
No more can you hurt anyone
And the fear still shakes me
So hold me until it sleeps

It grips you, so hold me
It stains you, so hold me
It hates you, so hold me
It holds you, holds you
Holds you until it sleeps...

I don't want it...

So tear me open, but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me till I'm clean

I'll tear me open, make you gone
No longer will you hurt anyone
And the hate still shapes me
So hold me until it sleeps...
5. King Nothing (5:29)
Wish I may, wish I might, have this I wish tonight
Are you satisfied?
Dig for gold, dig for fame, you dig to make your name
Are you pacified?

All the wants you waste... all the things you've chased

Then it all crashes down and you break your crown
And you point your finger, but there's no one around
Just want one thing just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled and you're left with just a name

Where's your crown, King Nothing!?... Where's your crown?

Hot and cold, bought and sold, a heart as hard as gold
Yeah, are you satisfied?
Wish I might, wish I may, you wish your life away
Are you pacified?

All the wants you waste... all the things you've chased

Then it all crashes down and you break your crown
And you point your finger, but there's no one around
Just want one thing just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled and you're left with just a name

Where's your crown, King Nothing!?... Where's your crown?

I wish I may, I wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight
I want that star, I want it now, I want it all and I don't care how

Careful what you wish, careful what you say
Careful what you wish, you may regret it
Careful what you wish, you just might get it!

Then it all crashes down and you break your crown
And you point your finger, but there's no one around
Just want one thing just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled and you're left with just a name

Where's your crown, King Nothing!?

Nothing... you know you're just nothing
Where's your crown, King Nothing!?
You're just nothing, absolutely nothing

...off to never-never land...
6. Hero of the Day (4:21)
Mama, they try and break me

The window burns to light the way back home
A light that warms no matter where they've gone
They're off to find the hero of the day
But what if they should fall by someone's wicked way?

Still the window burns, time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames, do you feel your name?
Did you hear your babies crying?

Mama, they try and break me
Still they try and break me

Excuse me while I tend to how I feel
These things return to me that still seem real
Now, deservingly, this easy chair
But the rocking stopped by wheels of despair

Don't want your aid, but the fist I make for years can't hold or feel
No, I'm not all me, so please excuse me while I tend to how I feel

But now the dreams and waking screams that ever last the night
So build the wall, behind it crawl and hide until it's light
So can you hear your babies crying now?

Still the window burns, time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames, did you feel your names?
Did you hear your babies crying?

But now the dreams and waking screams that ever last the night
So build a wall, behind it crawl and hide until it's light
So can't you hear your babies crying now?

Mama, they try and break me
Mama, they try and break me
Mama, they try and break me
Mama, they try
Mama, they try
Mama, they try and break me!...
7. Bleeding Me (8:17)
I'm digging my way
I'm digging my way to something
I'm digging my way to something better
I'm pushing to stay
I'm pushing to stay with something
I'm pushing to stay with something better

I'm sowing the seeds
I'm sowing the seeds I've taken
I'm sowing the seeds I take for granted
This thorn in my side
This thorn in my side is from the tree
This thorn in my side is from the tree I've planted
It tears me and I bleed, yeah... and I bleed, yeah

Caught under wheels' roll
I take the leech, I'm bleeding me
Can't stop to save my soul
I take the leash that's leading me
I'm bleeding me... oh, I can't take it!
Caught under wheels' roll
Oh, the bleeding of me, yeah
...of me... the bleeding of me

Caught under wheels' roll
I take the leech, I'm bleeding me
Can't stop to save my soul
I take the leash that's leading me
I'm bleeding me... oh, I can't take it!
Caught under wheels' roll
Oh, the bleeding of me...
Oh, the bleeding of me

I am the beast that feeds the feast
I am the blood, I am release
Come make me pure, bleed me a cure
I'm caught, I'm caught, I'm caught under

Caught under wheels' roll
I take that leech, I'm bleeding me
Can't stop to save my soul
I take the leash that's leading me
I'm bleeding me... oh, I can't take it!
I can't take it, I can't take it!
Oh, the bleeding of me...

I'm digging my way
I'm digging my way to something
I'm digging my way to something better
I'm pushing to stay
I'm pushing to stay with something
I'm pushing to stay with something better
...with something better...
8. Cure (4:54)
The man takes another bullet, he keeps them all within
He must seek no matter how it hurts, so don't fool again
Yeah, he thinks the answer's cold and in his hand, he takes his medicine
The man takes another bullet... yeah, he's been fooled again

Uncross your arms, take and throw them to the cure, say:
"I do believe"
Uncross your arms now, take them to it, say:
"I do believe", "yeah, I do believe"

Yeah, the lies tempt her and she follows again she lets him in
She must believe to fill the hollow, she's been fooled again

Uncross your arms, take and throw them to the cure, say:
"I do believe"
Uncross your arms now, take them to it, say!:
"I do believe", "oh yeah, I do believe, ye-yeah, oh!"

Betting on the cure, it must get better than this
Betting on the cure, yeah, everyone's got to have the sickness
...'cause everyone seems to need the cure... precious cure

Betting on the cure 'cause it must get better than this
Betting on the cure, yeah, everyone's got to have the sickness
...'cause everyone seems to need the cure... precious cure

"I do believe...", "I do believe"...

Betting on the cure, it must get better than this
Need to feel secure, yeah, it's got to get better than this...
It must get better than this
Betting on the cure, yeah, everyone's got to have the sickness
...'cause everyone seems to need the cure

"I do believe, I do believe, I do believe!"
9. Poor Twisted Me (4:00)
Oh, poor twisted me
Oh, poor twisted me
I feast on sympathy
I chew on suffer
I chew on agony
Swallow whole the pain
Oh, it's too good to be
That all this misery
Is just for, oh, poor twisted me!
Oh yeah, poor twisted me

Poor mistreated me
Poor mistreated me
I drown without a sea
Lungs fill with sorrow
Lungs fill with misery
Inhaling the deep, dark blue
Oh, woe is me, such a burden to be
The poor mistreated me! oh yeah

To finally reach the shore, survive the storm
Now you're bare and cold, the sea was warm
So warm, you bathe your soul again!
Baby, again and again and again, yeah

You finally reached the shore, survived the storm
Now you're bare and cold, the sea was warm
So warm, you bathe your soul again!
Good to feel my friend
Oh, woe is me, such a burden to be
Oh, poor twisted me, yeah
Yo, poor twisted me, yeah
Oh yo, yo, poor twisted me
10. Wasting My Hate (3:57)
Good day, how do? And I send a smile to you
Don't waste, waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you

Ain't gonna waste my hate
Ain't gonna waste my hate on you
I think I'll keep it for myself
Ain't gonna give no more
Ain't got the time to help you score
I think it's time you pleased yourself... yourself

Good day, how do? And I send a smile to you
Don't waste, waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you
Waste my hate on you... Hate!

You think you're worthy now?
You think enough to even raise the brow
And to laugh and tip that two-pronged crown?
Well I see my hands, I see my feet
I feel that blood that pumps in beat
But where the hell's my mind going now? Dead gone now!

Good day, how do? And I send a smile to you
Don't waste, waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you
Waste my hate on you...
Think I'll keep it for myself... Hate!

Ain't gonna waste my hate
But I'm so greedy when they say
Better to give than to receive
Ain't gonna waste my hate, no, no
Ain't got time to waste my hate on you
I think I'll keep it all for myself... for myself!

Good day, how do? And I send a smile to you
Don't waste, waste your breath
And I won't waste my hate on you
Waste my hate on you...
Think I'll keep it for myself... Hate!
11. Mama Said (5:19)
Mama, she has taught me well, told me when I was young:
"Son, your life's an open book, don't close it 'fore it's done
The brightest flame burns quickest", that's what I heard her say
A son's heart's owed to mother, but I must find my way...

Let my heart go... let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go... or let this heart be still

"Rebel", my new last name, wild blood in my veins
Apron strings around my neck, the mark that still remains
I left home at an early age of what I heard was wrong
I never asked forgiveness, but what is said is done...

Let my heart go... let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go... or let this heart be still

Never I ask of you, but never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness, I now take to my grave
Never I ask of you, but never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness, I now take to my grave
...so let this heart be still

Mama, now I'm coming home, I'm not all you wished of me
A mother's love for her son unspoken, help me be
I took your love for granted and all the things you said to me
I need your arms to welcome me, but a cold stone's all I see

Let my heart go... let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go... or let this heart be still

Let my heart go!... Mama, let my heart go!...
You never let my heart go!... so let this heart be still, oh-oh...

Never I ask of you, but never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness, I now take to my grave
Never I ask of you, but never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness, I now take to my grave
...so let this heart be still
12. Thorn Within (5:51)
Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned
Find me guilty of the life I feel within
When I'm branded, this mark of shame
Should I look down, disgraced, or straight ahead
...and know that you must blame!?

I am the secret
I am the sin
I am the guilty
And I am, I am the thorn within

Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned
Find me guilty when true guilt is from within
So point your fingers, point right at me
For I am shadows and will follow you
...one and the same are we!

I am the secret
I am the sin
I am the guilty
And I am, I am the thorn within

I do your time, I take your fall
I'm branded guilty for us all

So point your fingers, point right at me
For I am shadows and will follow you
...one and the same are we!

I am your secrets
I am your sin
I am your guilty
And I am, I am the thorn within...
13. Ronnie (5:17)
Story starts, quiet town
Small-town boy, big-time frown
Never talks, never plays
Different path, lost his way

Then streets of red — red, I'm afraid
There's no confetti, no parade
Nothing happens in this boring place
But, oh, my God, how it all did change?
Now they all pray: "Blood stain, wash away"

He said: "Lost my way this bloody day, lost my way"
I heard it, he said: "Lost my way this bloody day, lost my way"
Oh, please wash away, but blood stained the sun red today

I always said something's wrong
With little, strange Ronnie Long
Never laughed, never smiled
Talked alone for miles and miles and miles

"Gallow calls, son", I say
"Keep your smile and laugh all day"
Think once again in this boring place
For little boys, how they soon change
And they all pray: "Blood stain, wash away"

He said: "Lost my way this bloody day, lost my way"
Yeah, I heard it, he said: "Lost my way this bloody day, lost my way"
Oh, please wash away, but blood stained the sun red today

Well, all the green things died when Ronnie moved to this place
He said, “Don't you dare ask why I'm cursed to wear this face”
Now we all know why the children called him Ronnie Frown
When he pulled that gun from his pocket they all fall down, down, down

He said: "Lost my way this bloody day, lost my way"
Yeah, yeah, I heard it, he screamed:
"Lost my way this bloody day, lost my way"
Oh, please wash away, but blood stained the sun red today

All things wash away... and they all fall down
...but blood stained the sun today...
All things wash away... and they all fall down
...but blood stained the sun today...
14. The Outlaw Torn (9:48)
And now I wait my whole lifetime... for you
And now I wait my whole lifetime... for you
I ride the dirt, I ride the tide... for you
I search the outside, search inside... for you!

To take back what you left me
I know I'll always burn to be
The one who seeks so I may find
And now I wait my whole lifetime!

Outlaw of torn!...
Outlaw of torn!...
And I'm torn...

So on I wait my whole lifetime... for you
So on I wait my whole lifetime... for you
The more I search, the more my need... for you
The more I bless, the more I bleed... for you

You make me smash the clock and feel
I'd rather die behind the wheel
Time was never on my side
So on I wait my whole lifetime!

Outlaw of torn!...
Outlaw of torn!...
Yeah, outlaw of torn!...
And I'm torn!

Hear me!
And if I close my mind in fear, please, pry it open
See me!
And if my face becomes sincere, beware!
Hold me!
And when I start to come undone, stitch me together
Save me!
And when you see me strut, remind me of what left this outlaw torn...

Hear me!
And if I close my mind in fear, please, pry it open
See me!
And if my face becomes sincere, beware!
Hold me!
And when I start to come undone, stitch me together
Save me!
And when you see me strut, remind me of what left this outlaw torn...
