Food for Thought Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Snap (2:57)
My mind is screaming
My head is dreaming
My eyes don't sense reality
Sometimes i loose it
or i confuse it
i fear for my mentality

but i don't know where to start
when the pain tears me apart
and i can't keep touch
when it gets too much

then I'll snap, snap
then I'll snap, snap

although i hate it
i can't deflate it
that ain't the way it oughta be
I know the seasons
I've tried to reason
the answer's right on front of me

but i don't know where to start
when the pain tears me apart
and i can't keep touch
when it gets too much

then I'll snap, snap
then I'll snap, snap

but i don't know where to start
when the pain tears me apart
and i can't keep touch
when it gets too much

then I'll snap, snap

but i don't know where to start
when the pain tears me apart
and i can't keep touch
when it gets too much
and i can't hold ground
could you pull me down

then I'll snap, snap
then I'll snap, snap
then I'll snap, snap
then I'll snap, snap
2. Big Shot (2:48)
You know you're never gonna be a friend of mine
communication on your level's a waste of time

I can see you're only good for nothing
look around you're out of control

Big Shot, walking on the water
gotta prove the world so wrong
big shot, shining like no other
gotta show the world you're here to stay
king of the day

you can try but you won't see through his lies
with just a word you can cut him down to size

I can see you're only good for nothing
look around you?re out of control

Big Shot, walking on the water
gotta prove the world so wrong
big shot, shining like no other
gotta show the world you're here to stay
king of the day

Big Shot, walking on the water
gotta prove the world so wrong
big shot, shining like no other
gotta show the world that you're strong

Big Shot, walking on the water
gotta prove the world so wrong
big shot, shining like no other
gotta show the world that you're strong

Big Shot, walking on the water
gotta prove the world so wrong
big shot, shining like no other
gotta show the world you're here to stay
you fake, you cheat, you liar !!!
3. Anger (3:34)
Ask me something i don't know
help to make me whole
give the one thing that i need
cause i need to gain control

in don't know but I've been told
something's on your mind
i won't criticize if you tell me the deal
but there's a monkey on your back
and it's sucking out your pride

cause I feel your anger
i can sense your hate is working overdrive
yeah i feel your anger
can't you realize it's eating you alive

hit the breaks, yeah you're much too fast
the hatred takes it's toll
maybe what you need is a smack in the head
but there's a monkey on your back
and it's sucking out your pride

cause I feel your anger
i can sense your hate is working overdrive
yeah i feel your anger
can't you realize it's eating you alive

i guess you're getting nowhere
i feel... i feel... i feel
i guess you're getting nowhere
i feel... i feel... i feel
Tell me what have you got
and what do you need ?
Tell me what have you got
and what do you need ?
what have you got
and what do you need ?

cause I feel your anger
i can sense your hate is working overdrive
yeah i feel your anger
can't you realize it's eating you alive
cause I feel your anger
i can sense your hate is working overdrive
yeah i feel your anger

Tell me what have you got
and what do you need ?
4. Digging Through the Past (4:09)
expectation has become your plight
a loosing battle that you're not
prepared to fight
Infatuated in what lies ahead
convinced the future is hanging by a thread

you wonder why time passes by
(But) you never got a chance to fly
it's just another story told
a fear of growing old...

recolation, digging through the past
it give you comfort and you wish that it could last
so now you question how to coincide
the hard-earned wisdom with the carefree inner child

you wonder why time passes by
(But) you never got a chance to fly
it's just another story told
a fear of growing old...
you wonder why time passes by
(But) you never got a chance to fly
it's just another story told
a fear of growing old...

you tried to get the best of both worlds
you tried to have it all
you never had the feeling you'd be
heading for a fall
can't you see your bridges burning
the point of no return
there ain't no way to prophecies
something you should learn

you wonder why time passes by
(But) you never got a chance to fly
it's just another story told
a fear of growing old...
you wonder why time passes by
(But) you never got a chance to fly
it's just another story told
a fear of growing old...
5. Better Days (3:23)
I looked through a window
just to let my mind flow
then i saw a friend who
was looking for a friend too

spoke of her father
said he'll be leaving us
she'll be so lonely
and i want to understand

then I'll try to convince her
there'll be better days

got to be patient
i always told her
somedays are diamond
ooh, the words that i sold her

she wants to be happy
she can't find a remedy
her obligations
will never let her fly away

then I'll try to convince her
there'll be better days
Better Days

So I'll try to convince her
there'll be better days
there'll be better days
gonna find you a better day

then I'll try to convince her
then I'll try to convince her

there'll be better days
there'll be better days
gonna find you a better day

Better days...

she wants to be happy
She can't find a remedy
spoke of her father
she wants to be happy
so maybe she can fly away
to a better day, a better day...
6. Until I Wake (4:04)
i know another wrong won't make it right
i know another drink won't keep my senses clean
put a gun up to my head, might stop me for a while
i know another shot could get me through the night

but i feel my anger, and I'm so unstable
and i want to hold back, but I'm just not able
so i found redemption in a long white bottle
could it be I'm desperate? when it keeps me calm...

until I wake

i need another way to get me loose
i need another way to let my thoughts go free
can't you understand that I'm a complicated man ?
i need another shot before i tie my noose

but i feel my anger, and I'm so unstable
and i want to hold back, but I'm just not able
so i found redemption in a long white bottle
could it be I'm desperate? when it keeps me calm...

Until I wake, until i wake

hey yeah.... it's my mind, yeah... it's my way, yeah
and it comforts me, yes it comforts me
But i never - felt at ease
and I'm on my - bended knees
and nothing can - stop me now
cause I'm loaded...

could i learn my lesson? can't you feel my anger

break me, can't make me,
believe me, yeah !!!

But I feel my anger, but i feel my anger
but i feel my anger, i feel so alone...

but i feel my anger, and I'm so unstable
and i want to hold back, but I'm just not able
so i found redemption in a long white bottle
could it be I'm desperate? when it keeps me calm...

Until I wake, until i wake...
7. Fate (3:56)
Take a look at me, I'm getting higher
feeling kind of free, feed my desire
running with the devil, i don't regret it
longing for the time, when i finally get it

how many days before i meet my fate ?
how many times can i get away ?

jump into the wind, it's numbing my senses
will there be an end? am i defenseless ?
Maybe I'm a drifter, or am i assuming ?
how could i forget that I'm only human

how many days before i meet my fate ?
how many times can i get away ?
could it be wrong when it feels so right ?
how many times until i reach my ?
how many days until i meet my -

fate - what's gotten into you ?
take - what it's got to give you !
break - all the rules that limit you !
save - all the fuel that's driving you !

So I'm playing with fire
and i don't care if i burn
something to help me
cause i want it, i need it

hey look at me, I'm alive
take a look at me
take a look at me
hey look at me, I'm alive
feeling kind of free
feeling kind of free
Hey look at me, I'm alive

fate - what's gotten into you ?
take - what it's got to give you !
break - all the rules that limit you !
save - all the fuel that's driving you !

So I'm playing with fire
and i don't care if i burn

fate - what's gotten into you ?
take - what it's got to give you !
break - all the rules that limit you !
save - all the fuel that's driving you !

So I'm playing with fire
and i don't care if i burn
something to help me
when i find the urge
8. We Will Rock You (Queen cover) (1:56)
[Queen cover]

Buddy you're a boy make a big noise
Playing in the street : "Gonna be a big man some day"
You've got mud on your face
You big disgrace
Kicking your can all over the place
Singing

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

Buddy you're a young man, hard man
Shouting in the street: "Gonna take on the world some day"
You've got blood on your face
You big disgrace
Waving your banner all over the place

We will we will rock you
Sing it!
We will we will rock you

Buddy you're an old man, poor man
Pleading with your eyes; Gonna make you some peace some day
You've got mud on your face
Big disgrace
Somebody better put you back into your place!

We will we will rock you
Sing it
We will we will rock you
Every body
We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you
Allright
9. Dead Man's Scream (4:12)
One man's dream
gonna make the news tonight
One man's dream
gonna justify their plight
hear his voice
breaking through the underground
sad but true

it's gonna shake you
ooh, have you ever heard a

Dead man's scream, dead man's scream
a wailing cry of the one man's dream
it breaks you down, down to your knees
don't try to feed me animosity

Dead man's scream, dead man's scream
a wailing cry of the one man's dream
it breaks you down, down to your knees
don't try to feed me animosity

signed his name,
left his mark across the land
met his fate,
will they ever understand
gain control,
get it from the man inside
sad but true

it's gonna shake you
ooh, have you ever heard a

Dead man's scream, dead man's scream
a wailing cry of the one man's dream
it breaks you down, down to your knees
don't try to feed me animosity

Dead man's scream, dead man's scream
a wailing cry of the one man's dream
it breaks you down, down to your knees
don't try to feed me animosity

It's gonna break you
don't try to feed me animosity
don't try to feed me animosity
don't try to feed me animosity

Dead man's scream, dead man's scream
a wailing cry of the one man's dream
it breaks you down, down to your knees
don't try to feed me animosity

Dead man's scream, dead man's scream
a wailing cry of the one man's dream
it breaks you down, down to your knees
Into a dead man
10. Pass You By (3:33)
I never Thought I'd be the One
Who could Say all this
It took so long to work it Out
I've wasted time, it seems I'm just
getting Older
When will i find what I'm about ?

Then one day, you say,
it's time to break away
and we'll fly so high
don't let life pass you by

so many times you've shown me
grace under pressure
You never tried to prove me wrong
I've got a ticket for the last
train to nowhere
Why should you have to tag along ?

Then one day, you say,
it's time to break away
and we'll fly so high
you've got to try before
the days just pass you by
the days just pass you by

Where will I go ? I lost my way now
Where will I go ? I lost my way now
Where Will i go ?

I never Thought I'd be the One
Who could Say all this
I had a chance but had no faith to realize

Then one day, you say,
it's time to break away
and we'll fly so high
you've got to try before
the days just pass you by
the days just pass you by
11. Other Side (4:05)
See a light
Not a phonic sound or a soul around
Isolation
I'm gonna do my time

I'm on the other side
The other side

Block out my anger
I tried to push and shove my way above
I surrender
I found my hidden peace

I'm on the other side
The other side
I'm on the other side
The other side

Fly, leave the world behind you
Dive out of the greed of mankind

See the light
Don't let it shine, leave my fears behind
Nothing can shake me
I'm no longer scared

Fly, leave the world behind you
Dive out of the greed of mankind

I'm on the other side
The other side
I'm on the other side
The other side
I'm on the other side

I found that phonic sound
I found not a soul around
I'm gonna let it shine
Leave all my fears behind
Block out my anger
Block out my anger
I've found my way above
I surrender

I'm on the other side
12. Fly On (3:06)
I'm taking my time
cause I think I'm in line
and I'm hoping to find
that I'm not really blind
and i try to believe
that there's something for me
con you tell me the deal ?
do you know How I feel ?

Fly on
Out of the dark into the light
Move On
look at the stars and break into flight

I'm loosing my hold
on the things I was told
is there something to see ?
is there something for me ?
Should I know what they mean ?
There's a lot to be seen
Are they lying ?
They're lying ?

I want to be free
but I don't wanna be
like the others i know
i got something to show
so I'll try to believe
that there's something for me
could you tell me the deal ?
do you know how I feel ?

Fly on
Out of the dark into the light
Move On
look at the stars and break into flight
Fly on
Out of the dark into the light
Move On
look at the stars and break into flight

Gonna heal my broken wings
to break into the night

Fly on
Out of the dark into the light
Move On
look at the stars and break into flight
Fly on
Out of the dark into the light
Move On
look at the stars and break into flight
break into flight
break into flight

I'm taking my time
cause I think I'm in line
and I'm hoping to find...
13. Sorry (3:22)
Thought I'd found me an angel
when she came into my life
tried to prove that i was the one
that could make her feel alright

i had to have her
ooh, but she wasn't very easy
i tried to tell her
ooh, but she never listened

ooh, oh, oh, I'm sorry baby
ooh, oh, oh, I'm sorry baby
I'm sorry
I'm sorry

So i gave her a portion
that would make her feel so fine
from her sleep she would not awake
now i know that she's mine

i had to hide her
ooh, so i stuck her in the basement
How could i tell her
ooh, now she'll never listen

ooh, oh, oh, I'm sorry baby
ooh, oh, oh, I'm sorry baby

I wish i could let her out
i wish we could walk about
i wish i could show her
i am the guy
who will never let love pass her by

ooh, oh, oh, I'm sorry baby
ooh, oh, oh, I'm sorry baby
14. (Down) My Way (4:49)
Why don't you go to a place
where i don't have to see your face tomorrow,
face tomorrow
i guess your bus is running late
i hate to say you can't have friends to borrow,
friends to borrow

it's hard to realize you only use me
and you can't hide behind your bold disguise
i guess you must be blind
cause you can't see inside of me

hey you
why are you messin' with me
are you trying to break me
with psychology
but i can't stand
the shit that you say
if you don't really need me
then don't you come down my way

You call me up right after school
you hope to find yourself a fool to guide you
a fool to guide you
i guess i got to let you down
you need to find another clown to help you
cause i won't help you

it's hard to realize you only use me
and you can't hide behind your bold disguise
i guess you must be blind
cause you can't see inside of me

hey you
why are you messin' with me
are you trying to break me
with psychology
but i can't stand
the shit that you say
if you don't really need me
then don't you come down my way

you raped my mind
i lost control
i guess you'll find
you're on your own

it's hard to realize you only use me
and you can't hide behind your bold disguise
i guess you must be blind
cause you can't see inside of me

hey you
why are you messin' with me
are you trying to break me
with psychology
but i can't stand
the shit that you say
if you don't really need me
then don't you come down my way
down my way down my way...
