Mudvayne Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Beautiful and Strange (5:03)
I've got a splitting headache, chew aspirin for the pain
I'm on my wagon rolling, like a freight train
Another darkest day, always in harms way
I got a new bruise swelling, beaten by the bottle

[Chorus:]
So beautiful, and so strange
Scatter all the pieces
The puzzle will remain the same
So hideous, so de-ranged
Crawling through the tunnels
Lost inside the maze

Tremble like an earthquake, weight shifts inside me
The crucifix I'm dragging, nailed to the hard way
They won't forget me, the walls are bloodstained
As my will unravels, broken like a bottle

[Chorus:]
So beautiful, and so strange
Scatter all the pieces
The puzzle will remain the same
So hideous, so de-ranged
Crawling through the tunnels
Lost inside the maze
So beautiful, and so strange
Dropping little pebbles
Lost inside of this head space
So hideous, so de-ranged
Winding through the tunnels
Lost inside the maze, again locked inside of

You stole the matches, you lit the fuse
You let the boiler swell, I tied the noose on you

[Chorus]
So beautiful, and so strange
Scatter all the pieces
The puzzle will remain the same
So hideous, so de-ranged
Crawling through the tunnels
Lost inside the maze
So beautiful, you were beautiful
And so strange, but not as strange as me
So hideous, like the voice inside me
So deranged, locked inside my cage

Lost inside of me, lost inside of
Locked inside of me, locked inside of
2. 1000 Mile Journey (5:56)
Long's the life, steep's the climb
I took a match and lit the fire, fire
Pain for the pain, my guts ache
Built by the sin that was taught by the father, father
Now come and walk with me

[Chorus:]
The journey of a thousand miles -- it starts with one step
Plowing out the rows, the bleeding of the rose
A butterflies wings can start tornadoes don't ya know
Harvesting the souls, burying the bones

Deep inside the hole, shovel's always full
I bit the dog and I beat the master, master
Eye for an eye, tooth's been pulled
Lost all control that was taught by the mother, the mother
Now come and walk with me

[Chorus]

Another feeble man, arms outstretched out in a distant land
Wonders where it all went wrong, he's followed us too long
Another fallen man, that failed to make a stand
What have I done wrong, left here all alone
The voice inside my head, is it me or an alien
Throw me down the stairs, since I just don't care no more

I can't take the wind, I can't fight the storm, anymore
I don't have the will, I can't be the storm, anymore

[Chorus]
The journey of a thousand miles -- it starts with one step
Plowing out the rows, the bleeding of the rose
A butterflies wings can start tornadoes don't ya know
Harvesting the souls, burying the bones of old
The hurricanes eye is like the calm before the storm
Darkening the shore, settling the score
A butterflies wings can start tornadoes don't ya know
Harvesting the souls, burying the bones of old
3. Scream With Me (2:52)
Ever feel like dying, ever feel alone
Ever feel like crying, lost child in a store
Ever feel life pushing, shoving you away
Ever feel like breaking down, funeral in the rain
Feel life slipping away

[Chorus:]
Stand in the corner and scream with me
A body full of empty
A head that's full of rage better believe it
Stand in the closet and scream with me
A mind that's like a fire
Driven by the pain better believe it

Ever feel like lying, down inside a grave
Listen to the eulogy, a pyre on the hay
Ever danced beside the devil, taste the barrel of a gauge
Ever pull the trigger, light begins to fade
Feel life slipping away

[Chorus]

I've asked you for forgiveness
I've asked for your grace
I've asked your for your blessing
I've asked that I be saved

[Chorus]
4. Closer (3:21)
Here's to the closing door
Here's to just one more
Here's to all the damned
Here's to the bloodshed

Can't leave it alone won't let me forget
Rip out the bandage and tear out the stitch
Fed like a pig off the shit in the dish
Shrouded in burlap left for dead in the ditch
So callous so cold colors expose
The death of love as we know it
The death of trust in us let go

[Chorus:]
It's getting closer all the time
I'm slipping farther all the time
I'm getting stronger all the time
I'm feeling so weak inside
I'm feeling better all the time
I'm slipping farther all the time
It's getting harder all the time
Feels like I'm losing my mind

Tied to the tracks and cursing the name
Whiteout the thought stare blank in the rain
Lethal and used cast out and worthless
Befriending the foes deception commence
So callous so cold colors expose
The death of life as we know it
The death of mirth in us let go

[Chorus]

Little pigs, little pigs, let me come in
Not by the hair on your chinny chin chin chin
Then I'll beat and I'll pound
And I'll beat your fucking brains in

Here's to the splintered door, here's to you no more

[Chorus]

It's getting closer all the time
I'm slipping farther all the time
I'm getting stronger all the time
I'm feeling so weak inside
I'm feeling better all the time
Feels like I'm losing my mind
5. Heard It All Before (6:05)
Past times are for laziness and past time is gone
Can't live in it can't live with it
Hard times are for the crying type are like a wrecking ball
Hard as a stone can't let it penetrate
You've gotta believe in yourself
With your mind, with your guts, with your heart, make a stand
A stand against fools that will steal it away
Rip the heart from your chest and devour it

I ain't selling what they're wanting to buy anymore, no more, never
I ain't listen because I've heard all that bullshit before, too many times before

Eyes of a dog will wander for food like a scavenger
You've gotta own it, gotta defend it
You've gotta believe in the hunt, in the prowl, in the search
In the kill, I'm the alpha man

I ain't selling what they're wanting to buy anymore, no more, never
I ain't listen because I've heard all that bullshit before, too many times

[Chorus:]
I've, I've heard it all before, I've heard it
I've, I've lived it all before, I've lived it, no more

The parasites sucking the life outta me they're like cannibals
Bleed you for anything, bleed you for everything
You've gotta believe in the strength, of your mind, of the soul
Of the bone, what is real

[Chorus:]
I've, I've heard it all before, I've heard it
I've, I've lived it all before, I've lived it, no more
I've, I've heard it all before, I've heard it
I've, I've seen it all before, I've seen it

Heard it, lived it, know it, believe it
I live for no one, I'd die for no one

[Chorus:]
I've, I've heard it all before, I've heard it
I've, I've lived it all before, I've lived it, no more
I've heard it, seen it, lived it
I've done it, know it, believe it
I've, I've heard it all before, I've lived it
6. I Can't Wait (3:03)
I am the plague I am the loss I am the bitterness
I am the war I am the death I am the crucifix
I am the sacrifice I am the end I'm the fall of man
I am apocalypse I'm the dead wish I am your last breath
I am sin, I am dead zen

[Chorus:]
I can't wait until it's over
I'm done and gone
I can't wait to lose it all
Fuck it all, fuck you all, there's nothing left anyway
They say that dead men don't pull triggers
I'll prove 'em wrong

I am catastrophe and conflict, I am warfare
I am fatality I am the wound that's in your head
I am the dark I am the fear I am the orphan lamb
I am anxiety I am the crypt I am nothingness
I am hate, I am lost faith

[Chorus:]
I can't wait until it's over
I'm done and gone
I can't wait to lose it all
Fuck it all, fuck you all, there's nothing left anyway
They say that dead men don't pull triggers
I'll prove you wrong, yeah
I'll prove you wrong, yeah

I'm empty, empty I'm empty, empty I'm empty, empty

[Chorus:]
I can't wait until it's over
I'm done and gone
I can't wait to lose it all
Fuck it all, fuck you all, there's nothing left anyway
They say that dead men don't pull triggers
I'll prove you wrong, I'll prove you wrong, I'll prove you wrong, I'll prove you wrong
Fuck it all, fuck you all, there's nothing left anyway
They say that dead men don't pull triggers
I'll prove you wrong
7. Beyond the Pale (4:47)
Instruments for surgery, amputate the cause
Misery of humanity is carving through us all
Emptiness resolves and falls with
Instances of perjury, lies flowing out like piss
Darken like the fall of day until we seal our end
Until they seal our end is nearing

[Chorus:]
Oh, I feel sick got a bone to pick the little men that complicate it all,
so beyond the pale that I'm ticking like a time bomb
Oh, I'm so sick that I wanna spit the little men
Lying to us all, so beyond the pale
That I'm rippin' like a chainsaw

Illustrate the tyranny, building up the walls
Each life represents a stone, as foundation crumbles
We all fall down with words that speak of blasphemy
With every breath of sin, damned until the fall of man
The day we reach our end
Until we reach our end is nearing

[Chorus:]
Oh, I feel sick got a bone to pick the little men that complicate it all,
so beyond the pale that I'm ticking like a time bomb
Oh, I'm so sick that I wanna spit the little men
Lying to us all, so beyond the pale
That I'm rippin' like a chainsaw
Oh, I feel sick got a bone to pick the little men that complicate it all,
so beyond the pale that I'm ticking like a time bomb
Oh, so beyond the pale, complicate it all, so unacceptable

They make us all bow down, they keep us all locked out
It's time that we speak up, it's time that we speak out
Put the bombs away, put the guns away
Put the bombs away, put us all away

Words fall on deaf ears, signs for the blind
Words fall on deaf ears, our worlds collide

[Chorus:]
Oh, I feel sick got a bone to pick the little men that complicate it all,
so beyond the pale that I'm ticking like a time bomb
Oh, so beyond the pale, complicate it all, so unacceptable
Oh, feel sick, oh I'm nauseous, oh fucking sick, unacceptable
Oh, so beyond the pale, complicate it all, so unacceptable
8. All Talk (2:52)
Where will you be when it all falls down
Where will you be when it all comes back around
Where will you be at the end of our days
Just following the footsteps let the liars lead the way

[Chorus:]
I can talk about love, I can talk about hate
I can try to teach a lesson, but I doubt it penetrates
I can give you all excuses till I'm blue in the face
I could talk about serenity but it doesn't mean a thing anyway

Who will you blame, Who will you blame, Who will you blame

Who will you blame for the soot-filled days
Who will you blame for the hurricanes and tidal waves
Who will you blame for the riots and the anger
Just crying in the corner wishing you would've had a say

[Chorus]

Like a monster hides in your closet, it's creeping closer but we don't care.
Are we all insane, if it's just a game well I don't wanna play.

[Chorus]

I could talk about problems, I could talk about sin
I could talk about our triumph, what do we really win
I could talk about forgiveness, though I'd probably be condemned
Or I could talk about
9. Out to Pasture (5:47)
Like a worm, boring through
Cinders and rock and ash I think I need a broom
To sweep away the day, cleanse us of the shame we're in, I'm in
Like a stray, with the mange, worms and lice and matted
Think I need to bathe, to wash away the day
Cleanse us of the palate rid me of the taste

[Chorus:]
You keep leading me, you keep driving me
You keep pushing me, out to pasture to graze
Can't keep strangling, can't keep ignoring me
Can't keep choking me, climbing a clock tower
You keep telling us, you keep shoving us
You keep forcing us, out to pasture to graze
You stopped listening, you stopped listening
You stopped hearing me, so I'm loading my gun

Like a bum, sifting through
Dumpsters and trash and garbage, think I need some food
I've starved away all day, cleanse us of the hunger we're in, I'm in
Like a snake, sliding through
Sand and dirt and desert, think I need a tomb
To blacken out the day, veil me from the sunlight keep me in my place

[Chorus]

It seems to me, there are so many things
they don't want to share now doesn't that seem strange
It seems to me, it's all for one but doesn't it seem strange
When the one's for none not you, not me, no one

Doesn't it seem strange, that we don't know a thing
Doesn't it feel the same, as the cattle out to graze
Don't ya think it's strange, that we can't find our way
Don't you feel the same
Doesn't it seem strange, that we don't know a thing
Doesn't it feel the same, as the cattle out to graze
Don't ya think it's strange, that we can't find our way
Don't you feel the same

[Chorus]
10. Burn the Bridge (3:36)
No integrity, no sincerity, no credibility, and no regret
No principle no ethic no honor, makes no fucking sense
No insight towards the future, no vision and no respect
No authority, no veracity, no honesty and no penitence
No pride, no power, just a criminal, no morale

[Chorus:]
Your greed, you'd burn the bridge around me to save yourself
Your envy, you can't be what I am even with my help
Gluttony, take everything from me take it all for yourself
My wrath, I'll just live my own life

So violent, so dissident, no more requiem, so I lament
So simple to revere, to respect, down and left for dead
So forget my forgiveness, you've all failed to protect
My persistence, insistence, my will, my stubbornness
Consume, devour, like a criminal, no standards

[Chorus]

Before I saw the light, I crawled through darkness my whole life, so empty
Before I found my life, I embraced the death that's coming, so certain
Drawing near, coming closer it's approaching
I know the signs, I've got the number, I've found my vision
I know the motion, my eye's forever open

[Chorus:]
You'd burn the bridge around me to save yourself
Your envy, you can't be what I am even with my help
Gluttony, take everything from me take it all for yourself
My wrath, I'll just live my own life
My own life, my own life, my own life
11. Dead Inside (4:55)
I don't feel good, just an ordinary day
I don't care much, about what you think

[Chorus:]
It all washes away, in the end
Under skies so gray, in the end
We're all dead inside, can't deny what is real, the pain I feel
Dead inside, can't deny, always suffering
It's just my way

I've seen enough, no more hurt today
All damage is done, no more life this way

[Chorus]

Every single one, from every single way
All they do is drag me down and I know it'll never change
Every drop of blood, flows right down the drain
And though I spilled it all for you, you never appreciate
You never appreciate, we're all

Dead inside, can't deny what is real, the pain I feel
Dead inside, can't deny, always suffering
It's just my way
Dead inside, can't deny what is real, the pain I feel
Dead inside, can't deny, always suffering
It's just my way
