Word of Mouth Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. Against the Grain (4:21)
It's really been a pleasure to be such a pain
Oh, like a nasty stain that won't go away
I won't go away
Don't care what you say
Doin' things my way

I've got the hammer to nail you back into your box
I-I'm here to stay
I've got the power to stand up and take what I want

Are we all insane - Hate for hatred's sake
I choose to break away - Runnin' against the grain

I put the puzzle together and I slice my own pie
You know some won't like it - but to me that's just fine
Out of my way I don't want to play
Do you hear what I say
I don't want to play

I've got the pressure to back you right up to the wall
And you - do you hear what I say
This is the hour I welcome you all to the ball

Are we all insane - Hate for hatred's sake
I choose to break away - runnin' against the ... grain

Are we all insane - hate for hatred's sake
I choose... I choose to break away
2. All Rights Reserved (4:42)
Why try - request denied
As usual - refuse you all you crave
Goin' through the motions
Circumstance, irrelevance
Everyday - another way - that we the people pay
As rights dissolve and freedom falls
Our choices stripped away
Anywhere you go and everyone you know
Is subject to decline - if you do survive
You'll get what you deserve
For all the time you served
All rights reserved / All rights reserved
All rights reserved / All rights reserved
No rights left - a possibility
Constitution - desillusion - it doesn't mean a thing
So let's drink the wine before it's time
And sing the song with you own rhyme
The rights are ours - yours and mine
Anywhere you go and everyone you know
Is subject to decline - if you do survive
You'll get what you deserve
For all the time you served
All rights reserved / All rights reserved
All rights reserved / All rights reserved
All rights reserved / All rights reserved
All rights reserved / All rights reserved
3. The Voice (4:13)
Seven years are gone behind me
(Seven years are gone)
A flash before my eyes
(Before my eyes)
The truth revealed is everlasting
(The truth revealed is ever here)
And so are you and I
(So are) you and I
Listening to the wind, Feel the beat of your heart
Hear a voice within, it's singing, Ahh, Ahh...
Passion love and fear, and the will to survive
It's all that brings you here
And keeps you soul alive
Dreamin' of a new horizon,
(Dreamin' on and on)
Movin' with the tide
(Got to keep on movin')
There before you lie the answers
(Answers to the questions)
To the questions in your mind
Race across the land, with your fist in the air
Hearing the voice again, it's screamin' - Ahh, Ahh...
What you believe is real, Oh like you flesh and blood
In time you start to feel, just like you knew you would
Through it all you will find, unity and peace of mind
Now's the time, the time is now
Life is short, so live it well
Through it all you give and take, never give yourself away
Keep the faith and don't let go - don't let go
Listening to the wind, feel the beat of your heart
Hear the voice again, it's screaming - Ahh, Ahh...
Passion love and fear, and the will to survive
It's all that brings you here
And keeps your soul alive
Hear a voice again
Hear a voice, it's screamin' - Ahh, Ahh...
4. Thinking of You (4:56)
Been fourteen weeks since I've seen you
I never wondered, but I always knew
You seem to thrive on this macabre situation
Run at the signs of a real confrontation
Thinking of you
Thinking of you
Thinking of you
Justice for some is a high price to pay
There you remain in your self appointed cage
Now that you slept in your own bed of nails
Cry all along realizing that you failed - Ooh
Thinking of you
Thinking of you
Thinking of you - Ohh
Nothing can save you, there is no escape
Crushed by the power of concentrated hate
(Ahh Ahh) Thinking of you
(Ahh) - Thinking of you - Yeah...
5. Thunder & Rain (Part 1) (3:15)
Pins and needles won't soften the ice
Freezer burn, a needless sacrifice
Lost a piece of myself last night
I'm older now with blackened eyes
Between thunder and rain
I hear your name
Between thunder and rain
I see your face
It's cold outside
My insides colder still
Mentally crucified, a broken will
Drowning in life, it's so deep
The time has come, to sleep
Between thunder and rain
I close my eyes
Between thunder and rain
I see your face
6. Thunder & Rain (Part 2) (3:06)
Winter is falling, chill's in the air
Angel is calling a spirit somewhere
Memories that bind me, the tears never end
You've taken my brother, you've taken my friend
Taken my only friend
I know the clouds will be clearing away
The seasons will save me from thunder and rain
Loneliness cuts through my veins like a knife
This tortured soul so empty inside
Am I the victim or am I a slave
All these emotions, searching I pray
Now that the clouds have all cleared away
Time will continue, so will the thunder and rain.
7. No Fate (4:26)
All I am, all I feel
All of this isn't real
Destiny questioning
Look at this life, look at your life, look at me
I don't believe in fate
I don't believe I was born too late
Yeah, I believe in destiny
As long as I can choose the one for me - yeah
Countless nights, endless roads
None of these, etched in stone
Free to choose, free to be, free to wander endlessly
I don't believe in fate
I don't believe I was born too late
Yeah, I believe in destiny
As long as I can choose the one for me
I don't believe in fate
I live my life, don't hesitate
I don't believe in heaven sent
I don't believe
I don't believe in fate
I don't believe I was born too late
Yeah - I believe in destiny
As long as I can choose the one for me
I don't believe in fate
I want to set the record straight
I believe in who I am
8. Sense of Security (4:30)
My patience wearing thin - I am a child of sin
Now there's no escape - stand up and (sic)devastate
I never do what i'm told
Live my life on the road
Choices I make
This knife will cut away the plague that's in my way
The course is never clear - no time for bloody tears
I never do what I'm told
Live my life on the road
Chance I take
Around and around - I'm living it time and again
I live yesterday and today and tomorrow
THE END!!
My old familiar friend - On me I can depend
Calm or catastrophy - it's all the same to me
I never do what i'm told
Live my life on the road
Chains that I break
A finger to those who object to the way that I live
And another for those who make promises that they can't keep
I live yesterday and today and tomorrow at once
Say what you will - I answer to no one
My patience wearing thin - I am a child of sin
Now there's no escape - stand up and (sic)devastate
I never do what i'm told
Live my life on the road
Choices I make
9. Dreaming (4:14)
When the night time falls - images come to you
Then the voices call - trying to reach you
[chorus]
If you believe in me - set your heart free
Fantasy will be reality
Open up your eyes - to where your dreams lie
And when the full moon shines - The future speaks to you
Soon the sun will rise and you will realize
The dream that came to be is reality
[chorus]
If you believe in me - set your heart free
Fantasy will be reality
Open up your eyes - to where your dreams lie
The journey travels on drifting frame by frame
The one you see is real - but you don't know her name
The mists begin to clear - as you feel her near
The look that's in her eyes has you hypnotized
Illusions are no more - now you've opened the door
The truth is now revealed - it's the love you feel
[chorus]
If you believe in me - set your heart free
Fantasy will be reality
Open up your eyes - to where your dreams lie
10. Building # 6 (4:01)
Lock the door - throw away the key
Shut them out of reality
Made the twisted more insane
Locked inside an evil cage
Made by man - sent from hell
Down below the wishing well
Blackened cross - laced in brick
Atrocities that made me sick
Left behind to die slow
How could man be so cold
Cry out in darkness - no one comes
Cold and dirty - lonely ones
Watching, waiting, yearning, praying
Walls of concrete seal their cries
While three-piece-suits - they tell their lies
"In good hands, they'll get the best"
"Just check right in, we'll take care of the rest"
Void of light - end of hope
In the black like a hangman's rope
Life hereafter waits in vain
While sunlight runs away in shame
Watching, waiting, learning, hating
Welcome to madness - take a look
Is this Hell or Willowbrook
White coats became filthy rich
Massacre in building #6
Screams of anguish from within
Sub-human dwellers - countless sins
Around the corner - out of sight
Administration dims the lights
In a place where greed prevailed
Nothing left - all systems failed
They turned their backs and ran away
Abomination - Hell to pay
Hating, raping, killing, escaping
Welcome to madness - take a look
Is this Hell -no- Willowbrook
White coats became filthy rich
Massacre in building #6
11. Ministry of Fear (4:23)
After God and after taxes
The puppets who betray the masses
Reanimate the commonwealth
Innerstructure in bad health
Like a beast locked in a cage
Manipulation time again
In their sleep they're never more sincere
Together we will reign
With everything to gain
[Chorus]
In this ministry of fear
Retribution is here...right here
Segregation - people cry
While racist hate is on the rise
So you're looking to the church
Something for a world of hurt
They nail your money to the cross
Writing off a corporate loss
In their sleep they're never more sincere
Together we will reign
With everything to gain
[Chorus]
In this ministry of fear
Retribution is here...right here
Together we will reign
With everything to gain
Life's a little strange
