Submitted by level 큐션
1. Lost in America (4:52)
Silent voices close their minds and hide
Behind their secret gardens
Welcome to the age of rage
And everybody's high on something Run, see Jack run
With all the little piggies in a row
They come, They go
Does anyone five a damn
Who I am or where I'm going
I an your favorite some come undone
Lost in America
Suck your poison, throw your rhymes
And wait for something bad to happen

Stand behind your middle finger
Cool to kill is still in fashion
Run, see Jack run
With all the little piggies in a row
They come, they go
Does anyone give a damn
Who I am or where I 'm going
I am your favorite son come undone
Lost in America
Here in the wasteland
No one's as sane as everyone else
And there'll be hell to pay one fine day
2. Wake Up (3:44)
You go to school with your head held down
You try to fit in but they push you out
Too many people put your face in the ground
You'll get them back, you'll get them

Even if you gotta wait it out, the rage is out
And you feel like you're worthless
When you're breakin' down, no one's around
There's gotta be somethin' better than this
You wanna feel like you're livin'

Wake, up wake up, son, it's just a voice in your head
Get up, get up, tell 'em what you should have said
I know they get to ya but you got a future
Don't let 'em take you done

Wake up, wake up, boy, you're gonna live again
You think an attitude can make you cool
Sick and tired of being everyone's fool
You think daddy's gun is gonna erase
All the scars and the pain

But you better weigh it out, don't ever doubt
In one moment, your life can change
It's easy now to live it down
You say you feel like a number now
But you're more than a number

You can waste your time
Try to find someone to blame and let it out
But all you need to hear is
Everything is gonna be fine
3. Shine (3:42)
I never really feel quite right
I don't know why, all I know is something's wrong
Every time I look at you, you seem so alive

Tell me how do you do it, walk me through it
I'm following every footstep
Baby, on your own you take a cautious step
Do you wanna give it up?

But all I want is for you to shine
Shine down on me
Shine on this life that's burning out

I say a lot of things sometimes that don't come out right
And I act like I don't know why
I guess a reaction's all I was looking for, yeah

You looked through me, you really knew me
Like no one has ever looked before
Baby, on your own you take a cautious step
Do you wanna give it up?

But all I want is for you to shine
Shine down on me
Shine on this life that's burning out
I know, I know, girl you got something

Shine, shine it on to me
Shine down on me, I wanna feel it
Shine on this life that's burning out

Baby, on your own you take a cautious step
Do you wanna give it up?

But all I want is for you to shine
Shine down on me, just show me something
Shine on this life that's burning out
You give me something that I never know

Shine, shine down on me
Shine on this life that's burning out
Shine, shine down on me
Shine on this life that's burning out
4. Arrow (3:42)
The clock is ticking on the table in my room
Funny how the time just slips away
An ordinary, simple man
Who's lost a little piece of something
Hold my breath and close my eyes
Say a little prayer

Here we go again, hello
I didn't see the end and so the story goes
How can I be cool?
I always play the fool
I need a shot of love
Look, an arrow through the heart

My mind is open to the page of yesterday
Isn't it a crime how love can go
I always knew there would come a day
When silence played the king of pain
So, I close my eyes and hold my breath
And contemplate a change

Here we go again, hello
I didn't see the end and so the story goes
How can I be cool?
I always play the fool
I need a shot of love
Like an arrow through the heart

I have my faith in life, I know the truth inside
This time, I swear it's gonna be better
5. Mary Goes 'Round (4:00)
You're out the window
Your head is heading south

Under a constant cloud
That rains on your parade

Her wings have broken
Your fall from grace
No words are spoken
She invades your space

She comes in every color
To paint your sad face upside sown
You just can't help but love her
Cause everything's better
When Mary goes 'round

Her eyes are legend
An infectious mystery
A silent melody
That works into the skin

You can't imagine
You're forever changed
In Mary's innocence
It's a brand new day

She comes in every color
To paint your sad face upside down
You just can't help but love her
'Cause everything's better
When Mary goes 'round
6. Suffocation (4:42)
I'm waitin' for the someone, just beyond the pale
Where everybody's little thing is up for sale
An information bonfire, I'm twistin' while I wait and now I'm temptin' fate

24-7-365, Japan demonium is still alive
Praying like a sinner, crooked with the blues
Lost all there is to lose

Can't hear, can't see, can't touch, too much temptation
Too high to breathe, to believe in my own liberation
I'm fightin' suffocation, yeah, suffocation, yeah

Traffic of the mind, fast forward and rewind
Sometimes your clothes don't seem to fit
Frown becomes a smile, a man becomes a child
The fan is gonna hit the shit

Heaven on earth will cost you what it's worth
You'll find it anywhere you dare
When you spin the tale donkey, I wonder how you sleep
Jump up your fight for air, ohh, yeah

Can't hear, can't see, can't touch, too much temptation
Too high to breathe, to believe in my own liberation
I'm fightin' suffocation

I'm hangin' too much rope in shadows and the smoke
Turned blue up in the sky
I'm packin' all my stuff, too much is not enough
Who's got the most and then you die

Can't hear, can't see, can't feel my frustration
Too high to breath, to believe in transformation
Can't come, can't go, too slow, suffocation
Too high to breathe, to believe in my own liberation

There's too much population
Stop the world, I'm jumpin' off, I'm fightin' suffocation
Ooh, suffocation, yeah, suffocation
7. One World Away (4:05)
Everything is always changing
Even in a world that stays the same
Breakin' heavy hearts are shaken

All the lonely people live the game
He waits for her, she waits for him
They wait for anyone
And another day begins

People rushin' everywhere, never any time to care
Us and them and me and you, piling up so much to do
All the colors start to fade to gray, an ordinary day is just
One world away

Try to five them what they want
You're stuck inside that same old state of grace
All we are all we seem, a noisy dream inside a quiet place
I wait for her, she waits for him, he waits for anyone
And another day begins

People rushin' everywhere, never any time to care
Us and them and me and you, piling up so much to do
All the colors start to fade to gray, an ordinary day is just
One world away

People rushin' everywhere, never any time to care
Us and them and me and you, piling up so much to do
All the colors start to fade to gray, an ordinary day is just
One world away
8. I Don't Want to Be Happy (4:50)
I married my high school drama queen
She pulled the curtains over me
Then it was, I now pronounce you a one act fool
I've been sitting here wishing for my pot of gold
And my ship to come on in

But the motherload is just another load of shit
That I've been sinking in
Say goodbye to greener pastures
Living happy ever after
I don't wanna be happy

So what if I'm blue?
I'm not looking for a change
I'm keeping my old shoes
I don't wanna be happy
That's why I'm with you

Now, it's Oprah and Sally and how the world turns
And the big time money that I'll never earn
When only the sun goes down, the party's over
If misery loves company
Then, baby you and I were meant to be

Tomorrow's turning out to be a beautiful day, yeah
Say goodbye to greener pastures
Living happy ever after

I don't wanna be happy
So what if I'm blue
I'm not looking for a change
I'm keeping my old shoes
I don't wanna be happy
That's why I'm with you

We settle for poor connection
Got it down to imperfection
9. Crawl Over Me (5:08)
Crawlin' is the place you have been,
When you're crawlin'
When you crawl...
Crawl over me.

Euphoria is her name, she's so good,
She is almost bad, she is almost mad.
Sweet misery is a game that conceals,
The benediction, a cruel conviction.

Have you ever been a child,
have you ever faked a smile,
When you crawl? (crawl over me)
You're back on your knees again,
Right where you've always been. (crawl over me)
Where's your pride?
You're on the ground.
Crawl over me.

Since the alchemy plays the cards that she deals,
She lets me see what I want to see
[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/crawl-over-me-lyrics-mr-big.html ]
Have you ever been afraid,
Have you ever lied to get laid,
When you crawl?
Crawl over me,
You're back on your knees again,
Right where you've always been. (crawl over me)
Where's your pride?
You're on the ground.
Crawl over me.

Have you ever been alone, stare into the great unknown.
You want to suffer so you can't feel.
You can't buy so you have to steal.
Was I ever in your plans?
Will I ever understand?

Crawl over me, (crawl over me, crawl over me, crawl over me)
You're back on your knees again, (crawl over me)
Right where you've Always been. (crawl over me)
Wehre's your pride?
You're on the ground.
Crawl over me.
10. Cheap Little Thrill (3:11)
Superstar girl in a strange little world
Exit on hustle made for two
Rock 'n' roll colossal, makin' such a fuss, oh
Candy on a million dollar bill

I want to know if you
Be got a strange fascination
And some time to kill

We can blow up the minds
Of the old congregation for a
Cheap little thrill

Expressionistic space suit
Exit from the parachute
The planet is a candle in a box

I'm swingin' from the grapevine
Runnin' through the stop sign
Won't you show me yours?
I'll show you mine

I want to know if you
Be got a strange fascination
And some time to kill

We can blow up the minds
Of the old congregation for a
Cheap little thrill

I know you've got
A strange desperation
And I'll stay until

We can blow up the minds
Of the old congregation for a
Cheap little thrill

A cheap little thrill
A cheap little thrill

I know you've got
A strange fascination for a
Cheap little thrill
11. How Did I Give Myself Away (4:15)
You walked in like a goddess
I'm good like I don't notice
Wrapped up in all the trimmings
I stopped my tongue from spilling
My insides, inside out

So, how, how, how is it possible?
To spy my private eye
How, how, how could it be so criminal?
Inside your dirty mind

I hid my heart away with my little masquerade
How did I give myself away?
I'm high on Cleopatra
Too high to climb the ladder up

A slave to circumstances
I watched you from a distance
I thought you'd never know how far I wanna go
To spy my private eye

How, how, how could it be so criminal?
Inside your dirty mind
I hid my heart away with my little masquerade
How did I give myself away?

I never felt so busted
My insides, inside out
How do you see me now?
12. Nothing Like It in the World (5:00)
Love is a stranger you didn't plan on
Turns you to a victim or a volunteer
It can disappear like a rose in a garden
There's nothing like it in the world

You can swear to God that it's over
Tell a clipped heart to play dead
There's no way to stop looking over your shoulder
There's nothing like it in the world

There's nothing like the weight when it's lifted
There's nothing like a dream where you learn how to fly
I know for sure, 'cause I've been there before
There's nothing like it in the world

Somewhere in a smile there's an invitation
Calling you back into the dance
You can't deny such a high from a beautiful moment
There's nothing like it in the world

There's nothing like the weight when it's lifted
There's nothing like the weight when it's lifted
There's nothing like a dream where you learn how to fly
I know for sure, 'cause I've been there before
There's nothing like it in the world
