I Hear Black Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Dreaming in Columbian (4:00)
Worlds apart, separation from my mind
Just close my eyes to bring me there
I fall apart; the pieces are so hard to find
A puzzle piece is torn in half

The absence, of color surrounds a broken dream
Call my eyes to take me there
One by one I watch, as the pieces disappear
My friends become the ones I hate
This house of cards, it won't withstand the wind
I shut my eyes to escape

All my whites have turned to black
Every time I close my eyes - dream in Columbian
All my bugs are comin' back
Crawlin' on my face, they speak in! Columbian

Worlds apart, a separation from my soul
Worlds apart, the separation is now whole...
I watch the pieces fall apart
I try to make a brand new start
I'm fallin' in, I'm fallin' out
I'm fallin' up, I'm fallin' back
I'm fallin' down and fallin' round and askin' why?

All my whites have turned to black
Every time I close my eyes - dream in Columbian
All my bugs are comin' back
Crawlin' on my face, they speak in! Columbian
2. I Hear Black (5:38)
Bad or a wet dream, feelin' so in between
Gun in my pocket an' a target on my head
Right on the wrong road; he talks to me through dogs
Not sure who it is but I know it ain't God
Feel like they're watchin' me, know that they're watchin' me
C'mon, let's go got two tickets to the moon
Now what are you supposed to do when they got their hooks in you

Do you believe me? I was there
And did ya hear it!? Yeah!

Not my fault, wasn't even there; rest of the world, all gone insane
Can ya hear the dogs barkin', can ya hear the dogs speak?
Seen it on the TV, something gonna break
Now how am I supposed to breathe when there is no air?
And how am I supposed to be when those hooks are pullin' me... down?

If you release me, won't be there
If you leave me I won't care!

I hear black, it has no mercy!
"I hear black, it has no mercy!" repeating in my head...

From the inside out talk to me, in tongues
The worst of this I understand, that the flies are breeding
The wounds are bleeding; there'll be no healing in my house
From the inside out... you know I'm not the same!

If you release me, won't be there
If you leave me I won't care!

I hear black, it has no mercy!
"I hear black, it has no mercy!" repeating in my head...
3. World of Hurt (5:19)
Aggravation fuelin' me
Money powered hypocrisy
I have no feelings, you're much the same
We have no feelings, we feel no pain!

I am numb to all I see
This the way it has to be
Gone is hope, gone is need
I know: stone don't bleed

What's it worth if I die?
What's the reason they all cry?
I have no feelings, too much the same
Not my problem, I feel no blame

We are blind and we are cold
We're afraid of growing old
We are numb to all we see... nothing sacred

Backs turned to madness
Backs to misery and I put the
Brush to the canvas.!.
An' paint a world! Paint my world of hurt!

We are blind and we are cold
Still afraid of growing old
We are numb to all we see... nothing sacred

Backs turned to madness
Backs to misery and I put the
Brush to the canvas.!.
An' paint a world! Paint my world of hurt.!.
4. Feed My Head (5:37)
Talk is cheep, I can't afford the price of wasted time
Who will reap the profit of the lie?
Fantasy, illusion, fusion, impressions of a high
Sacred is the being of the lie

Drawn is a picture of myself
It's all that I see leaving!
Gone are the cries I heard for help
The mirror spits reflections of a lie

Are you waiting for a chance?
Won't happen standing in the rain

Damage done, the truth is drowning in a sea of hate
Wet, they wear the fiction like a badge over their hearts

Drawn is a picture of myself
It's all that I feel bleeding!
Gone are the cries I made for help
The mirror spits reflections of a lie

Feed my head! I'm hungry for a lie

Be sure and teach your children well to use it pure and slow
Be sure they teach their children, be sure the children's children

Slight of hand, slight of word, slight to believe the absurd
Feed my head, I'm hungry, I'm hungry for a lie

Drawn is a picture of myself
It's all that I see grieving!
Gone are the cries I made for help
The mirror spits reflections of a lie...
5. Shades of Grey (5:19)
I watch the smoke drift from my cigarette
I hear the roaches cross the floor
Slam dance around me, in my chair I sit
The gray's leakin' through the door
There's a shade of gray I've never seen before

My gaze fixed on the space beneath the door
My life flash before my eyes
All this sweat grew from one solitary drop
Grey's movin' cross the floor

We walk alone, no one beside us!
It's never as simple as black or white
We should have known, no one would find us!
That we would all wind up in shades of gray...

"It seems like every time I get a chance
is quite naked and as I turn around, as I turn around
and inside there's no doubt it's gonna happen again"

Nobody listenin' so I talk to myself
Sometimes I pay me no mind
I lost this argument so very long ago
The right words were so hard to find
I can't breathe in the grey!
An' I can't find the key to the door

We walk alone, no one beside us!
It's never as simple as black or white
We should have known, no one would find us!
That we would all wind up in shades of gray...
6. Spiritual Void (5:14)
Bless me with that special pain that makes a man feel right as rain
My soul-a-fire, feelin' so alive in your own way

If you need a reason to get some healin'
If your spirit's bleedin' then get some healin'!

I need a new religion.!.

Laughin' like a true believer, laughin' hard the true deceiver
Without a worry in this world no friend of time

If you need a reason to get some healin'
If your spirit's bleedin' then get some healin'!

Do we get higher? Ha ha ha, higher
Are we all higher in a spiritual void?

One for neglecting me and two on the way to three
No, I never felt so low, I never felt so low as in this void!

Bless us all with what we need! Self indulgent constant greed
What's mine is mine, is mine; you get your own, leave me alone

If you need a reason to get some healin'
If your spirit's bleedin' then get some healin'!

Do we get higher? Ha ha ha, higher
Are we all higher in a spiritual void.?.
7. Ghost Dance (1:46)
8. Weight of the World (4:07)
You feel the weight of the world and your back's are not that strong!
Can you carry a tune or is the weighting forever so long?!
Do ya freeze in the heat? Wear sunglasses at night?
And are you beating my meat to the sound of the same old drum!?

It's time to shed your skin and with it promises
And we bite down hard and feel... the weight of the world

Yeah, there's a song in them words, though they leak through your teeth!
You're shakin' hands with the right while your cutting my throat with the left
Yeah, it's the weight of the world when ya lay down with dogs!
After humpin' your leg they just leave you with flees and just split!

It's time to shed your skin and with it promises
And we bite down hard and feel-

The more I know, the less I understand
Try not to think out loud
The more I know, more I know, more I know
More I feel... the weight of the world!

It's the weight of the world when ya lay down with dogs!
All the names have been changed but the story is always the same!

It's time to shed your skin and with it promises
And we bite down hard and feel-

The more I know, the less I understand
Try not to think out loud
The more I know, more I know, more I know
More I feel... the weight of the world!
9. Ignorance & Innocence (5:00)
I ain't lookin' for a reason
I ain't searchin' for my soul
I'm findin' all the answers
It's the questions I don't know

Seen it from the outside!
Outside lookin' in
What's it like to be inside?
Will I ever stop payin' for my sins?

Will I see the light of day?
When will all these dues be paid?
Send on down a sign to me
Or am I too blind too see?

Ignorance and innocence go hand in hand
Ignorance and innocence!
Am I guilty man? Yes, I am

Takin' rides on a one way street to nowhere
I'm lookin' for a sign I understand
Passin' time to save my mind
Following that road that winds
In and out of my own towns of hell

Standin' up or layin' down
My head goes spinnin' round and round again
My head goes spinnin' round and round again
My head is spinning, head is spinning.!.

Ignorance and innocence go hand in hand
Ignorance and innocence! Am I guilty man.?.
10. Undying (5:26)
Wake up, baby, daddy's comin' to crack your skull in two
Hit you like a hammer, baby, down to play a fool

No to the kicking! No more to say!
No having just one meaning!
Nothing left to say; no way, no!

Surface the anger through immortality
Never be undying, ~undying~, undying

Wake up break down, daddy's comin'; all you heard is true
So bite your lip and shut your mouth, it's no longer up to you

No to the licking! No more to say!
No leavin' you alone
Nothing more to say; no way, no!

Surface the anger; immortality
Should you be undying, ~undying~, undying?

No for-give-ness!
No more to say! No way, no!

Surface the anger; immortality
You never were undying, ~undying~, undying, ~undying~
Undying, you never be undying, you never were undying
You never seem undying; how can you be undying.?.
11. Just Like You (4:13)
It's just like you to talk when I'm not around
It's just like you to kick me when I'm down
Symptoms of your lunacy: tryin' to be what you can't be
I don't want to end up just like you

I can't hear you!
I can't see you!
I won't hear you!
Just like you

It's just like you to think you're playin' god
It's just like me to know you're not
Weakening with every day, turn down the sound and fade away
No, I'll never end up just like you!

I don't need you!
I can read you!
Never need you!
You can't see me!
You can't bleed me!
Cold and empty!
Just like you

There lies a fallen man, fallen by his own hand
Once the way it used to be: believed in you, but now I'm free!
I believed in you, but now I'm free! Now I'm free!

It's just like you...

I don't need you!
I can read you!
Never need you!
You can't see me!
You can't read me!
I set me free!
Just like you...
