V Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Living Backwards (2:31)
I've been gone forever
Lost in my own zone
Wandering a wasteland
Trapped here all alone
No one here to help me
No one even cares
So I became the ruler
of the land of despair
Tried ti catch the fast lane
But I was left behind
Now I'm only chasing
The colors in my mind
Dreams were made for mortals
None were left for me
So I'm living backwards
The past is all I see
The past is all I see
2. I Bleed Black (5:14)
Open my veins
I do it everyday
I live in a dark world
Where death is just an L.A. game
Feelings of caring
Are something I lack
Slice me wide
I bleed black
No one comes close
Nobody dares to care
I can tell by their eyes
They're just a bunch of fucking
Unaware squares
They can't tel just where I'm at
Slice me wide I bleed black
They say I'm crazy
I should be locked away
But no bars can hold me
Still spread my decay
Hurt my bad side
I'll make you crack
Slice me wide
I bleed black
3. When Emotion Dies (2:11)
When you're sick and tried
And feeling blue
Just remember
You're not the only you
Take a look around
We're everywhere
We know your feeling
Just catch our stare
When emotion dies
You are alone
When emotion dies
When emotion dies
4. Patra (Petra) (7:32)
When they told me you were leaving
I began to feel sick inside
Because I never, never got to tell you
What I'm feeling inside my mind
In my nightmares caused by anguish
I can see you run away
In the daylight, I am hunting
Only to lose your last trace
I still feel your presence always
And I've fallen over the line
I am hurting as I wander
What it would be like if you were mine
If you were mine
If you were mine
5. Ice Monkey (4:01)
Prehensile? It clings fast
A purple primate, the snair's cast
The endless chatter?
It's truth and lie
A double standard, it's live or die
Cruel Kandiru, your being brings
You slipped inside through
On temptation's wings
It couldn't be so, it always is
The way the game goes
Nature of the biz

[Repeat second verse]
6. Jack Frost (7:26)
Winter is coming
You'd better take care
For then I'm released
All mortals beware
Lock your windows
Bolt all doors
And hope it keeps me out
You better hope some more
Living things wither
Your bones feel my cold
I silently slither
Turning young into old
Bodies lie broken
Brittle from the wind
One moment with me
And frostbite sets in
Nights, they grow longer
When I'm around
Your world is smothered
Under frozen ground
Exposure to me
Brings on certain death
If you don't believe
Just look at your breath
7. Angry Man (4:30)
I don't need the madness that society breeds
I don't need the pressure comin' down on me
Why must you always stare, I ain't no fucking clown
Just want to live without somebody bringing me down

[Chorus:]
All I want is to live my life
Easy and free
I don't need
No human bullshit
Prejudice, down on me

Everywhere I wander, I stick out in the crowd
Constantly fight for relief, abuse from all around
Now my mind is twisting, contemplating revenge
But I won't stoop to their level, I refuse to be like them

[Repeat chorus]

Hard for me to be happy with sadness all around
Real easy to be angry, ain't no problem to frown
You'll have to prove to me that what I say is a lie
Cause all I see is hatred splashed before my eyes

[Repeat chorus]
8. Mind-Food (3:12)
Plastic unicorns point at you
Sideways faces are nothing new
Psychedelic sunrise at the foot
of the bed
You get all this when you feed
your head
Cellophane people, multicolored sky
Scenery changes in the wink of an eye
You can smell the colors, hear the lights
A bit of mind food works every time
Black turns to white, red turns to green
The world looks better than it's ever seemed
The walls are melting, the curtains breathe
Nothing can touch you when your mind is free
Your mind is free
Yeah you're mine!
