(I Used To Make Out With) Medusa

Dead hands clutch my arm The smell of death fills the air Her fragrance, Her carcass reanimates. Oh, if you need me I'll be tying a rope to the tree Where our love used to be. I've took down every photo of us and buried them at sea. I've took down every photo of [...]

100 Words

This is the final night, boys. We are the cracks in diamond walls. I tried to illuminate, but the shadows kill. I'm overshadowed. See how I blend with nothing? Now beautiful boys, let's destroy. We'll shine as the Lucite breaks and falls. Raise the new, glitter god, with the golden tears - the tears that [...]

You only walk where you are led Cunning devils creeping in Their ideas are now your plans And now, my fevers breaking like a vow It makes me so Sick, the things that you still believe are Sick, the way you've been so deceived is Destroying the life you live It makes me so [...]

17 Crimes

If you had a day would you give me a moment? Would you allow our play to leave no bone unbroken? Let's love like seventeen I'm in love with poisoning Only bring your pretty frightful gifts to me Lets love and kill like seventeen now If I weren't so cold We couldn't freeze this moment. [...]


And shepherds we shall be, for thee my lord for thee. Power hath descended forth from thy hand, that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command. So we shall flow river forth to thee, and teeming with souls shall it ever be. In nomine Patris, et Filli, Spiritus sancti. You've sunk lower than [...]

236 E. Broadway

It seems so tough sometimes When you face a day with back to back conflict When you get pushed around you might stand your ground Might end up on your back but... When you fall do you benefit and talk about it? When you fall do you get back up with your head above [...]

2nd Sucks

Fight! You're afraid like I make my deals with the devil You've been at it for years but couldn't reach the next level Let's keep it real, this is no competition to me Even if everyone around you acts like they don't see (Ohhh) Is anybody else listening? Out of sight, out of mind [...]

3 Day Weekend

aside from the name that holds us together now I think we'd fall apart it's the years we'll pretend we've forgotten that separate our hearts and I don't remember the way this was but the pictures prove I knew you once and where is the source of our mistakes I'm afraid one day we'll [...]


Bring your secrets to me. Just give me your hands and I’ll let you feel the wounds they put in me. If you believe in me, how can I be dissolving? If you'd believe me, I’d tell you everything. Do you fall too? (Every time that I) Yes, I fall. (Every time that I) Do [...]


As I watch your life go up in flames, You'll swear up and down you'd like to change But when the sun sinks slowly into the sky, Now you're right Where you started again with nothing to say, Without an argument or case And when it's said and done and done and said, And [...]

A Beautiful Indifference

There's a struggle coming, but to conquer, first they must divide. The machines keep humming night and day. How are we so unaware, Why are you not afraid? Protests are drumming while you turn your nose and roll your eyes, Knee-jerk reactions so ingrained. Judging from an arm chair. Cause there is hate and [...]

A Better Place

She said she never believed in the idea of fate No love at first sight stories, I wasn't her soulmate When she collapsed (when she collapsed) I thought she was joking But she didn't get up again, she didn't get up again A thousand flowers, a hundred cards to say She's in a better [...]

A Deep Slow Panic

I watched you glide out the door With poise I'd not seen before I saw you shine… you shine I collapsed to the floor It promised it missed me more And said, "True love is mine. I missed you. Did you miss me?" Slowly, it's consuming me Deliberate and deep. I can't take this deeper [...]

A Gentlemen’s Coup

The pain, disorder A cataclysmic dawn We trusted but something has gone wrong We bought in But woke to find it gone Impact in 5-4-3-2… Brace for fallout The radiation creeps On cats feet We scatter in the streets She asked me "Do you think it's safe to breathe?" It doesn't look that way [...]

A Giant In A Giants World

Behold this is my vision no less real for being unseen Like a giant in a giant's world I am proud of nothing We try to be better from the outside in But still we have no place to call home in the end A wise man speaks when he has something to say [...]

A Great Fire

Burning down We can't stop it We gotta get out Start again The memories are gone forever Don't try To turn this around on me I'm the one that saved you This was my home This was my life It's not always just about you And as I heard The sirens begin to chime [...]

A Hero Loses Everyday

Hey! I've lost everything. Now I've gotta find a way out. Hey! They keep asking me where I was when it was burning There's no trying to explain. They'll lock me up again. Throw away the key. The protagonist became the villain they disdain in every way Hey! I've lost everything. But I'm gonna [...]

A Lot Like Vegas

So cash in all your chips tonight baby Cause were going out of style. We could leave this city, if only for a while. We'll take this feeling to our graves For every heart we betrayed. No one can know about this. [x2] The only place I'll call home, is my deathbed. I know [...]

A Match Into Water

I kissed the scars on her skin. I still think you're beautiful and I don't ever wanna lose my best friend. I screamed out, "God, you vulture. Bring her back, or take me with her." Tear it down, break the barricade. I wanna see what sound it makes. I hate this flavor with a [...]

A Midwestern State Of Emergency

I am a dead man, I’m crawling into a trap. A horizontal response, I'm laying down for you once again. You've taking what's granted. I've said goodbye to my friends, I've thrown myself headfirst into this. Close the curtain and strand me. Found myself lost again, with even more excuses, and even less concern. [...]

A Moment

All the lies don't hold me, But they're sinking in my skin, Coursing through my veins And the truth eludes me, Losing sight of it again Save me from myself Close my eyes, see my life Have I lost my way? I hope this is the last time Am I here to stay? Nowhere [...]

A Second Glance

This is for you (this is for you). You're the one worth waiting for. You're all I ever needed in this life. Let's take a look back, so we can see, What it took to bring us here and we're So reminded of better days, When we were both happy. This is for you [...]

A Shipwreck In The Sand

Once upon a time Before the lakes and rivers were polluted Before the animals were poached to extinction And before man had destroyed the earth's atmosphere There was a great ship. This vessel was to venture into new waters To find new resources, to make life easier and more enjoyable. It was a simple [...]

A Shot In The Dark

Ch-ch-ch-ow! Lets take them back to the days, when we were family. My breath was your breath when we were young. I think it's funny how the times have changed, throw being jealous in the mix and now all I know of you is a name, Couldn't have came at a better time. This [...]

A War Inside

The devil on my shoulder tells me he's proud of me That it takes a real man to look out for himself and no one else I don't want to believe that But sometimes it's easier to just stay silent I wish I knew how to speak out I never had a problem with [...]


How can you just turn your back on everything you said you believe It may not be real to you but it's real to me Leave me out, I want no part of this Open the gates and push me in I'm not ashamed of who I have been I'll never hesitate to say [...]


Every night devise new heights in genocide. Lover, I am loveless. All my friends and I toast health and suicide. Lover, I am lonely. Were you holding hands when my palms bled? Oh, I will be all right... just use me, just use me. The future's bright without me. Spend some time walking the line. [...]

Alive And Well

(Are you ready to rock?) Now's the time To rearrange your life Live for something Outside of your own mind We all dream The same dream every night To burn the world that you call civilized Alive and well I live to be alive And I live to always strive For something more Alive [...]

Alive In The Lights

From the beginning I knew I was different. I embraced it, but you didn't. Your normal life, 9-5, it's just not for me. I need to feel alive! I won't fall like the rest of them, they've come and gone with the wind. I hear the doubt in the back of your mind but [...]

All I Want

I’m always screaming my lungs out Till my head starts spinning Playing my songs is the way I cope with life Won’t keep my voice down Know the words I speak are the thoughts I think out loud I like to keep things honest. I’m a safe bet like your life’s staked on it, [...]

All Signs Point To Lauderdale

I hate this town, it's so washed up And all my friends don't give a fuck They'll tell me that it's just bad luck When will I find where I fit in 2,3,4! Remember when I tried I'd never strayed too far from you Forever by your side No matter what I was going [...]

Alligator Blood

[x2] Let's play a game of Russian roulette, I'll load the gun, you place the bets. Tell me, who will make it out alive. Over and over and over again, we play the same old games. Cards kept close to my chest, that way the secret's kept. So wear your poker face. Here's to [...]

Already Dead

You won't find me here the place that you expected me to be in my bed on the second floor I'm outside your house I'm closing in on you and all the times you smiled you said hello and thought I was ok I was planning your final struggle [Chorus] When you wake up [...]

Always And Never

This was my fate, giving in To your lips, to your eyes I should have known it would come back to haunt me Crooked smile, the reflection in your eyes That shows my weakness for Beautiful mistakes, Something that I know you've seen before, I'm not the first Set the trap, I'm falling for [...]

Amber Changing

Information kept to myself and everybody wants to know, I trust the words of no one else cause I've been there before, Your voice is wasted 'cause I'm not listening These callused fingers are wrapped around a black ball-point pen, These eyes don't wander as far as they at one time did, I've seen [...]

American Dream

It was on our wedding day When my heart began to stray Never thought I'd make such a big mistake Throw my life away I've gone days without food I've went weeks without sleep Keeping this in I've got cuts I can't close I've got wounds that won't heal It's all your fault I've [...]

An Ever-Growing Wonder

I am the man in the mirror. My reflection, I aspire to be. In your reflection what do you see? False fault or a masterpiece? But a masterpiece starts with a single stroke and empires start in an open field. (I am the man in the mirror) But a masterpiece starts with a single [...]

And The Snakes Start To Sing

I've lost the plot again Tell your friends to sharpen their teeth There's a few quid to be made... And my soul's a sorry state So come on down, you empty lovers. Worms come out of the woodwork And the snakes start to sing. Do you feel the chill, Clawing at the back of [...]

Another Song About The Weekend

They keep playing sad songs on the radio And I feel like I'm so alone On this 15-hour drive And all the while I tell myself to just believe Cause nobody can give so much And never get anything (never get anything) Everyone I used to know Says they don't know what I've become [...]

Another You

White walls (Filled with nothing but) Nervous paces (All around I see) Something's off (Inside of myself) I see it in their faces Say anything, say anything Say anything that can make this all okay Take it away, take it away Take away all of this emptiness I feel 'Cause I will never find [...]


This is an anthem, so fucking sing A dedication to the end of everything This is an anthem, so fucking sing (So fucking sing) A dedication to the end of everything Someone call an ambulance, I got wounds to attend Someone call a doctor, I fear this is the end This happens all the [...]


Middle fingers up if you don't give a fuck. I'm sick to death of swallowing Every single thing I've said. Middle fingers up if you don't give a fuck. You think you're changing anything? Question everything. The world is a shit-tip, your children are fucked. The ones you think guard you are out for [...]


Tear into silence, my ears begin to ring Begin to ring in the new sound anxiously Oh, I am anxious and aching, breathing the burning air Caring for something that is not there Knowing what's fated, begin my fatal flight Flying obscenely into the light But the light will evade me to bring down punishment [...]

Anyway You Want It

Anyway you want it that's the way you need it Anyway you want it She loves to dance she loves to sing she does everything she loves to move she loves to groove she loves the lovin' things All night all night oh every night so hold tight hold tight oh baby hold tight [...]

Anywhere But Here

We've been alright up until now, but the air that we breathe is about to run out. We've rehearsed our lines clear and loud, but the cue never came and the lights, they never went down. So we're passing the time, while time passes us. The fast lanes a term never applied to us. [...]


Are there no fighters left here anymore? Are we the generation we've been waiting for? Or are we patiently burning, waiting to be saved? Our heroes, our icons have mellowed with age. Following rules that they once disobeyed. They're now being led when they used to lead the way Do you still believe in [...]


You're killing me kid, But I know you're not trying to. It's just that I've crossed out More than I wrote down for you And now I'm trying to play it off, Like, "Oh, I wasn't trying that hard". What I'm trying to say is I was trying to say that you should come [...]

Audience Of One

I can still remember The words and what they meant As we etched them with our fingers In years of wet cement The days blurred into each other Though everything seemed clear We cruised along at half speed But then we shifted gears We ran like vampires from a thousand burning suns But even [...]


Cut me open and tell me what's inside Diagnose me cause I can’t keep wondering why And no it's not a phase cause it happens all the time Start over, check again, now tell me what you find Cause I'm going out of frequency Can anyone respond? It's like an avalanche I feel myself [...]

Awake Too Long

I watched the rise and the fall of the common man I lived to see our steps walked back I watched the walls all crash down, crumbling Just to be rebuilt while we slipped We threw swords in the oceans wide and deep We promised peace but the peace won’t last 'Cause now we [...]

Bad Vibrations

Don't forget that this is a choice Pick your poison, live with remorse Don't forget that this is a choice Pick your poison, live with remorse I could burn a hole with my eyes that cuts straight through the skin No more love, no more resolution It's getting harder bearing the darkness within I [...]

Ballad Of Hollis Brown

Hollis Brown He lived on the outside of town Hollis Brown He lived on the outside of town With his wife and five children And his cabin brokin' down. You looked for work and money And you walked a rugged mile You looked for work and money And you walked a rugged mile Your [...]

Be Careful What You Wish For

Raise your glass to everything You've accomplished on your own I promise it wouldn't mean a thing tomorrow We're all just headed straight for the ocean floor On a ship without any captain aboard This time you can't save yourself We're all (we're all) just wasting time Standing still waiting for Something to happen, [...]

Beautiful Thieves

My dear there is no danger Can't you see they turn blind eyes To we swift and spotlight strangers? Oh before the rush is over We will be revered again While the victims still recover Oh! If we run this light Take a little life No one will care at all Oh! We can burn [...]

Been There, Done That

We are all guilty But silence will not save our souls We are becoming tired and weary and our conscience is slowly growing old Living by the reason of science Never question what we are told These words rise above my voice but I think you already know Now let's get one thing straight [...]

Behind Closed Doors

Chairs thrown and tables toppled, Hands armed with broken bottles, Standing no chance to win but, We're not running, we're not running. There's a point I think we're missing, It's in the air we raise our fists in, In the smiles we cast each other, My sister, my brother. About the time we gave [...]


What is this whispered thief? Is it a lie? Is it a lie? Does fabrication begin at belief? Who steals my years to keep all to themselves? Is it only just the ground we stand upon? Is it only just the ground we stand upon? Is it only just the ground we stand upon? [...]

Ben Threw

Loose lips sink ships, So I'll keep silent. I suggest your words stay in your mouth! It's never ending, the cycles ascending. People keep asking, I'm not here! I don't really think that you've ever walked a mile in my shoes! I don't really think that you know what I've been through! What I've [...]

Beneath The Skin

Another day she sets foot in this prison, Dreading what they'll say. So much to give, but no one ever listens. She dreams of running away. Crippled by the way they make her feel, She takes a look at her wrists and turns to the blade. It's not a cry for attention if she [...]


You're my favorite explosion. (You know the only real way to cure pain is to add a little more, because everything new distracts the old.) A violin with no hands plays symphonies with no words. A drowning boy with no voice prays someone up there's telling me, You'd better not get back up! I [...]

Best Of Me

What'd you expect from me? It's not my fault you'll never be happy. Just cause you're right doesn't mean I'm wrong, Our days were numbered and we knew it all along. Can't you let things be? Now all that's left is misunderstandings. Spent my nights wishing I was gone. My dad was right, we [...]

Better Off This Way

I wonder if you’ll notice, If they lock me up and throw away the key Try to be open minded, You’ve got a lot to learn in the ways of me You always got to say something, I’m none of your concern but you won't listen at all You know I’d rather say nothing, [...]

Black & Blue

I guess some kids are just born with tragedy in their blood, I try to wash this away, I wanna cleanse your VEINS! I can help you see the light Out of your despair, You tie the rope, I'll kick the fucking chair! I feel the malice in my veins My heart swells with [...]

Black Masks & Gasoline

Simply because you can breathe, doesn't mean you're alive, or that you really live. this life has taken it's toll and she just doesn't know, how much more she can give But here, at the top of the world, where I raise my hands and I clench my fists, they stand before me below, [...]


So just like that you're fucking dead and gone You can only wear a crown of thorns for so long We built an empire and you took the throne But you built it from bayonets and sat there alone I hope your queen was worth it, Do you still serve her on your knees? [...]


You got hell to pay but you already sold your soul It's blasphemy But the words don't make sense no more What would your mother say, your faith that you ignored So don't try to tell me that you still believe No don't preach to me Ask no questions and you'll get no lies [...]

Bleed Black

Oh I am exploring the inside, I find it desolate I do implore these confines, now, as they penetrate, "recreate me" I'm hovering throughout time, I crumble in these days I crumble, I cannot, I cannot find reflection in these days (If you listen) Listen, listen (Listen close) Beat by beat (You can hear when [...]

Bleeds No More

My heart bleeds no more; now, it's been turned to stone. Your stomach feels sick for someone else. I've broken both my legs falling for you. Drag me on the ground. Powerless I stand, tarnished blade, cutting through, pushed into my vein. Blood still stains my hands. Sharpening my sense of pain outside My [...]

Blessed With A Curse

Ever since this began, I was blessed with a curse. And for better or for worse I was born into a hearse. I know I said my heart beats for you. I was lying girl, it beats for two. Because I got your love and I got these vices. Take back every word I've [...]


What if I’m right and you are wrong? What if you knew it all along? What if I figured out that I did not belong? What if it always bothered me? What if I never did believe? Would it be wrong if I decided I should leave? If I pretended I was blind And [...]

Blood To Bleed

This place rings with echoes of Lives once lived but now are lost Time spent wondering about tomorrow I don’t care if we lose it all tonight Up in flames, burning bright Warming the air of the world “I don’t love you anymore” is all I remember you telling me Never have I felt [...]

Blood-Red, White & Blue

So come test me, so come break me So come on intoxicate me With hands tied behind my back I fight And wait for you to strike A new problem we cannot stop them We're outnumbered and uncautioned A rally cry rings out into the night So pride yourself on what you are And [...]


I always saw you as something else It looks like my eyes played a trick on themselves But I galaxy it in misguided shade May erase the image of the life we made I was set on you, when you had to shift Mistakenly you had your flaws burned in And it covers me [...]

Bodies And Words

This conversation always ends with goodbye. You're standing here behind the door, you're waiting with your rope. Maybe you just have to sleep in someone else's bed. Maybe you just have to keep searching for something better than perfect, which you know will never exist. It's cut and dried. There's no defense like a [...]

Bones Exposed

It's like loving a lion that cannot be tamed I snap at the thought or the sound of your name Pulling teeth from my stomach You've been eaten alive My blood fills your lungs My soul, your inside My feet they stand on ashes From the fires that you've made Burning bridges just to [...]

Born Dead

You call this a privilege No, I call it a right There's no respect for life No compromising Coverage denied (Coverage denied) So sit behind your desk and tell me how I'm supposed to feel inside You know I'm slowly dying, how long I have left is for you to decide We keep on [...]

Boy’s No Good

Tune the electric bass to the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th string. The boy's no good. Yeah, he's a fuckin' hood. He won't treat you like he should. I heard he's making time with this friend of mine. I heard he's talking trash. I saw that kid last night. He's starting fights. He's got [...]

Break Free

Break free Through every bone I break Through every word you say You're just another enemy Right now, get away from me You won't, get the best of me I can't, stop or slow down I never have and I never will You won't break me Or silence this heartbeat Your words they mean [...]

Breathing Towers To Heaven

I saw this alone The city was aflame Did I turn right in or turn away? Seems I went back home Holed up for a day Some say a year passed, but that's Okay I'll stay I'll stay Disappear with me here Where the sun shows no fear, as it burns my resolution To remain, [...]


When faith alone is not enough, To keep our heads barely above, We look for reason and come up empty-handed. And when our children fight our wars, While we sit back just keeping score, We're teaching murder not understanding now. We're setting the fires to light the way, We're burning it all to begin [...]


In a world of uncertainty The night sky told us all to be patient But when the ground started shaking I wondered for how long There’s a place that I’d rather be There’s a voice deep inside of me Saying the progress we are making Is not progress at all Into a world of [...]

Broken English

our buildings have fallen, our walls all caved in, and we can't comprehend this sad state that we're in so we sift through the ashes of what we've become and surrender here one by one, so push us down and we get right back up again, the things you're telling me aren't making any [...]

Broken Generation

He sits & he waits Feeling broken & hollow Hands held close to his face Screaming why do I bother? They'll just tear me down, Rip me apart, cast aside like a sinner With no words from the wise Will you ever learn? Learn to listen Can you hear them calling? You'll testify to [...]

Broken Mirrors

Hey man, now did you hear Your final days are near? In a free fall of fire and ice And explosions in the sky A fate, yeah, that we deserve There's no escape, no Now it's your turn Now it's your turn It's been years Since our luck ran out and left us here [...]

Broken Stars

Shooting daggers at me Letting it be known you're not impressed I never fail at failing all your tests Don't be so proud 'Cause you're still so scared to be alone And you can't change your mind You won't embrace this But you'll accept it You can't let go Broken stars By a single [...]

Broken Statues

Show me your hands Let me wash them clean. Show me your heart. And let me heal you. We all need this. To be renewed. After time and wear. We're broken statues. Vines intertwined. Around your insides. Hold you down. You beg for restoration. Your best has crumbled. From being so weathered. We all [...]


A 26 ounce promise The bottle still lays there We'll make a right on Brookfield Never took anyone else here The days I sit for hours This night I tried to throw these rocks in to This dirty lake that's home You standing in my backyard Your hands up in the air Calling out [...]

Built To Last

Invest time, invest life invest it all, reinvent yourself before you know it your essence is renewed with something fresh Your will, your way will earn respect in your day let the glory sharpened knife carve the future of your life let's not praise the past, just a fact Built to last old school [...]

Bulletproof Love

I breathe you in with smoke in the backyard lights, (Backyard light) we used to laugh until we choked into the wasted nights. (Wasted nights) It was the best time of my life, but now I sleep alone, (Sleep alone) So darling, don't, don't wake me up, 'cause my thrill is gone. (Say I'm [...]


What a waste, I see you now and then, But mostly we pretend We're not more strangers than we're friends. Then we say, what we need to say, To try and get away From the tension we create. Why can't we say the things, the things we wish we would? Why can't we laugh [...]

Bulls In The Bronx

Do you know I count your heartbeats before you sleep? I bite my fingernails to bone. And then I crawl back under the stairwell To a place I call my home. I really hope you enjoy the show, Because for me, it's just a bad day. You need people like me to feel. Maybe [...]

Buried At Sea

All together we’re taking pictures These eyes, this smile, a look put on a thousand times This town of lies, it only makes sense we’re both here A perfect match, a symbiotic relationship No lines in this sand, I want to stay here until the end Then you said, living here’s a death sentence [...]

Burning Hearts

The blood is rushing to my head This room is spinning 'round the bed A flashing image perforates Tarnishes memories of grace A bursting bond reforms into this shape And if my body makes it out Unscathed and safe from broken vows A promise spoken leaves me holding on I just can't get a [...]

But Tonight We Dance

Breathe deep and easy, swallow this pride. Stare at my shaking hands through bone-dry, blood shot eyes. Clocks drip the hours, I count the miles. Will you be there waiting, awake until sunrise. I have traveled in darkness, for what seems like days, I, come from the sinkholes, collapsed under this weight. I know [...]


Feel it, the calm after the storm. As still as I can be. I'm finally all alone until I fall asleep. Did I escape or am I captured? Trapped in a cage of rear view mirror eyes. Triangles that look like faces. This is what I get for my revenge. A hidden microphone, an [...]

Call It Karma

Blame it on the weather, but I'm a mess And this February darkness has me hating everyone And I know I need your comfort, but this drama makes me sick And the longer I lay here I know it's harder to get up without you [Chorus:] Lose another day here Lose another year here [...]

Can You Feel My Heart?

Can you hear the silence? Can you see the dark? Can you fix the broken? Can you feel, can you feel my heart? (Can you feel my heart) Can you help the hopeless? Well, I'm begging on my knees Can you save my bastard soul? Will you wait for me? I'm sorry brothers, so [...]


Sunshine, there ain't a thing that you can do that's gonna ruin my night. (But, there's just something about) This dizzy dreamer and her bleeding little blue boy. Licking your fingers like you're done and, You've decided there is so much more than me. And baby, honestly it's harder breathing next to you, I [...]

Casablanca Sucked Anyways

I've spent so much time trying to fix your life that I forgot about mine. This time I'm putting my foot straight through the floor. You won't be walking through any of my doors anymore. So tell me what's so wrong with me that you could leave so easily. And you threw this all [...]

Cast The First Stone

I'll cast the first stone Just to take the attention away from me Anything to protect my reputation Because I feel like that's all I have, all I know What do I look like in their eyes? Is it something desirable? Or am I nothing? What do I look like in their eyes? What [...]

Chamber The Cartridge

(This is Noyes) Down beyond these city streets through gutters filled with black debris In alleys void of any light where nameless things live out of sight Down through the scrapers of the sky past neon words glowing all night Echoes my name between each car, "Are you happy where you are?" Blind to [...]

Chasing Rainbows

They drag me underground The lights are slowly fading The world I thought I knew I never knew at all The dead don't make a sound Unless you're chasing rainbows And then they scream your name Clawing at the gates So pull me out And hold me down Let's find a way To lose [...]

Chelsea Smile

I've got a secret It's on the tip of my tongue It's on the back of my lungs and I'm gonna keep it I know something you don't know It sits in silence Growling in the dark Eats away at me It feeds like cancer This guilt could fill a, fucking sea Pulling teeth, [...]

Chemical Kids And Mechanical Brides

Like a rush shot through you Everyone is watching you Told you why I see no need for the sun (I've found a reason to say) A love you light is a love soon gone If this is it Don't bother cause this love is a lie I'm a chemical kid You're a mechanical [...]

City Of Ocala

Fuck yeah! Remember way back when? They said this life was a dream. Well it still is, I never wanna wake. Standing in my backyard at our old practice space Hard to hold back the tears from streaming down my face. That was then, this is now. You can't run before you go learn [...]

Coffee Mug

Mug, mug, mug Coffee mug Gonna clear away the haze Liquid proof That I can win this race Coffee mug The grip that keeps me tall My inter-link Keeps me questing all I don't need no booze or drugs I just chug-a-lug-o my coffee mug And I don't need your kiss and hug I [...]

Cold Hands

How I regret what I must do but you've left me no choice. Though I still strain I can't recall the beauty of your fey voice. Now that I've heard come through the walls a song I've heard many times I must return all you gave me in the company of swine. We had found [...]

Colder Than My Heart If You Can Imagine

Don't point your finger baby This isn't the best time for you to test me "This wasn't just anyone here" she said If it wasn't you, it's someone you would lie for Tell me, who would you lie for? Let's live the lie I'm still singing "Whoa" (Whoaa) Don't say you won't let it [...]

Collapse (Post-Amerika)

When our rivers run dry and our crops cease to grow And when our summers grow longer and winters won't snow From the banks of the ocean and the ice in the hills To the fight in the desert where progress stands still When we've lost our will That's how we'll know This is [...]


we were designed for more. in an image not our own. but we've fallen short. i'm quite speechless and was quite unaware. of what the capabilities of a weak heart are. we're cast away. it'll run through the back of your head until you regain control again. the sleep lost on these thoughts wasn't [...]

Conjunctions, Conjunctions, Everybody Loves Them

Staring at the pictures on my walls wishing I was there But I'm stuck in a world where nobody cares, I've gotta finish Wondering what you'll do when I'm gone, I bet you'll find somebody new I got a ticket for a one way ride and I'm never gonna look back, never gonna look [...]

Cowbell’s Makin’ A Comeback

By the streets of that one bedroom apartment We stood and watched the storm. Our eyes upon the blackened sky, As the rain began to fall. With a gentle sigh you took my hand and pulled me in, So close. Our pulses, beating a rhythm of passion As the lightning split the sky. I [...]

Crooked Young

Believe in no one Hallelujah, well I'm saved Just a dozen steps and 28 days It's a miracle, I'll be born again With the Lord as my Shepard I will find a way Fuck your faith. No one's gonna save you. Fuck your faith. There's no hope for us We speak in tongues, blacker [...]

Crucify Me

Crucify me, and nail my hands to a wooden cross There is nothing above, there is nothing below Heaven and Hell lives in all of us. And I've been cast astray I am an ocean, I am the sea There is a world inside of me Lost in the abyss, drowned in the deep [...]

Currents Convulsive

Dancing On My Grave

Stop pretending that you're better, you're as guilty as all the rest. You're planning shelter from this division, a ruined cities aftermath. Some people call it tragedy, I call it moving on. I never asked for you to care, I never wanted the things you've got. And now you're praying for your rapture, As [...]

Dancing Through Sunday

Will you join me in this dance, this dance of misery Cradled in imposs... impossibility? Swooning, I am swept away Swept off my feet, with step by step by step We take the lead as drop by drop, we start... to bleed (Oh, we dance in misery) And we dance on, and we dance on [...]

Darling Harbour

In the lighthouse by the sea, at the 33rd degree You make me feel so special and free But there's something in the air turning stutters into stares I look into your blue eyes and say... (Darling) Don't throw it all away (Darling) I'm here to make you stay with me In the sun [...]

Darling, I Want To Destroy You

Were you dying to go? You just looked so exposed, demure through the dark dancing lights. I glided by. I can't deny that the shadows betrayed you and I on that night. Oh, I must confess I am overdressed. Are you not impressed? Darling I want to. I'll confess this too, must you know the [...]

Dawn Of The Fall

It was yesterday you told me you loved me, But today I learned you found someone else and everything was fake, was fake. When I get back home I know that you'll be gone. And all the things I've given you are left behind; I'll put them in a box. Yeah! And today I [...]

Dead & Buried

Let me find the way that I can make do. Without circumstance, without follow through. A man in desperation can't trust a troubled mind. I'm building an empire, say I'm wrong. I don't mind if it's all against one. No room for weakness, I'll be gone forever. Dear mother, as this noose is placed [...]

Dead Ringer

I never claimed to be something more than me, your standards, I refuse to see, I will answer only to myself, so why don't you police someone else the place I call home isn't there anymore, with boards on the windows and locks on the door, so pick up the pieces that never once [...]

Death Blossoms

On dirt like snow The lions pace The bones of men that start to overgrow Are all that remains What they stole was innocence The slate once clean has gone as black as coal Time and time again Take a look around The tide is turning upside down The image of a world reflects [...]

Death Breath

The sun goes down, we come out A different party in a different city The sun comes up, we go down We lived fast and died pretty We're all vampires And we own this fucking night We're all vampires And we own this fucking... I'm not homesick I'm just so sick of going home [...]


Eyes like a car crash I know I shouldn't look but I can't turn away. Body like a whiplash, Salt my wounds but I can't heal the way I feel about you. I watch you like a hawk I watch you like I'm gonna tear you limb from limb Will the hunger ever stop? [...]

Defend You

I'm lying down and you can't see why I've gone to sleep Try to relate can't give in to your temptations (temptations) All your hopes and dreams, washing away silently forget everything you taught me (you taught me) when I looked up to you Fall to your knees and give up your aspirations (aspirations) [...]


Ready to defy, ready to resist Open up these walls built to keep you out Going stronger with every struggle Like a wave crashing into the shore each time Can't be stopped with your emotion As we repossess the ocean Still my walls stand high I can feel these walls, feel them closing in [...]


I'm dying here before your eyes inside of darkened circles I'm afraid of savage things I fought to keep away Before I found out just what I found that I knew you'd become Now you know the things I'm running from... You could help me hide in the places I once lived and lost [...]

Desert Nights

I’m running back to you, keep running back to you This is where I lay, I’ve been drunk for seven days I couldn’t tell the truth, so I made up alibis to hide my dishonest life Wait, there’s something I can’t explain so I’m giving in again All these desert nights they keep me [...]

We will never sleep, 'cause sleep is for the weak And we will never rest, 'til we're all fucking dead We will never sleep, 'cause sleep is for the weak And we will never rest, 'til we're all fucking dead We will never sleep, 'cause sleep is for the weak And we will never [...]

Dirt And Roses

This city grieves like widows clasping folded flags against their hearts Raindrops spill like dirt and roses on black coffins in the dark Not yet corpses, still we rot, oblivious to our decay Drinking poison, drop by drop, descend to dark Unless we save our lives From the coming tide That seeks to drown [...]


I laid down, I drank the poison then I passed the fuck out. Now let me tell you 'bout the good life, I have a million different kinds of fun when I'm asleep and in a dream that I'm your only one. Can we create something beautiful and destroy it? Nobody knows I dream [...]

Disparity By Design

All the way at the bottom Of the barrels we cry out So ashamed of our tears that We blame only ourselves That's when they win They keep us convinced To lift up our chins These playing fields are level We all have a chance With that they dismiss The fast lanes they rode [...]


It's three o'clock in the morning, You lie awake with a heavy heart. You're thinking, "What is the meaning? Was I a waste? A mistake from the start?" You just can't seem to remember, The last time anyone seemed to care. All passion seems to wither, When it seems you have no purpose here, [...]

Don’t Go

I was raised in the valley, there was shadows and death. Got out alive but with scars I can't forget. This kid back in school, subdued and shy. An orphan and a brother and unseen by most eyes. I don't know what it was that made a piece of him die, Took a boy [...]


Cut off my wings and come lock me up Just pull the plug yeah, I've had enough Tear me to pieces, sell me for parts You're all vampires so here You can have my heart You can have my heart You can have my heart The walls are a funeral, I run with ghosts [...]


This is my deepest dream. This is how I show you my love. (My love, my love) This is him speaking to me. This is me speaking to you. (My love, my love) This is him speaking through me to you. This is him speaking through me to you. I'm here struggling with my [...]


You're busy drawing hearts You run your fingers down the glass An open mirror Now you're sleeping in the front seat Like a crushed leaf on the concrete night Murder ring What are you talking about? Murder ring And how did you get into my house? I think you buried me too deep You [...]


Deep inside these burning buildings Voices die to be heard Years we spent teaching a lesson We ourselves had never learned And if strength is born from heartbreak Then mountains I could move And if walls could speak I'd pray That they would tell me what to do If you see me, please just [...]


What doesn't kill you makes you wish you were dead Got a hole in my soul, growing deeper & deeper And I can't take one more moment of this silence. The loneliness is haunting me. And the weight of the world's getting harder to hold up. It comes in waves I close my eyes [...]

Elective Amnesia

We don't sleep very much These triggers ache for the touch Where's the strength we relied on? Fear alone, like a crutch, maybe that's what keeps us up all night with the light on Glowing screens simulate Lives that no longer take place Can this be what we've become? Paper thin, overweight, pills to [...]

Empire (Let Them Sing)

It's the start of the end, surrender the throne The blood on my hands covered the holes We've been surrounded By vicious cycles And we're truly alone The scars on your heart are yours to atone We've been surrounded Let 'em sing, let 'em sing! The deeper you dig, the darker it gets There's [...]

End Of Me

I took some time away For understanding of what brought us here today Oh, you'll be the end of me I'm never happy like we were happy I'm never sad like we were sad Oh, you'll be the end of me You know me all too well And I can't suppress the memories You're [...]

End Transmission

Pull the top down, use your knees to drive. I'll make it worth your while just let me taste the sky. You pressed your mouth on mine and fed me a star And said "we never can truly know who we are." Know who we are. With the lights out and the night inside the [...]


And on that day they'll tell you That life hummed on with no clue The warning signs were all dismissed or shouted down So it goes The kings all failed to tell us The madmen failed to sell us On what would then befall the only life we know Were they burning signal fires [...]

Endlessly, She Said

Walked into our world and made horrible sounds. I can still hear them today. Strangely, they seem beautiful now though they outlast my love. Still, each time I always meant every word, every one. Though, in time they finally bent every word, every one, every word. "I will wait for you", she said, "endlessly". "I [...]


All we are is entertainment Caught up in our own derangement Tell us what to say and what to do All we are are pretty faces Picture perfect bottled rage Packaged synthesized versions of you We've all made petty fortunes but we can't afford a life Confined to pull-out quotes and hotel rooms They [...]

Escape Artists

Undercover of the dark night Avoid the clattered street lights And disappear at dawn Camouflage ourselves to get by Hiding here in plain sight Waiting for a sign to come It's the lottery of life We all play to just get by Some of us escaped Found a better way, a better life The [...]


Wear your tears tonight my dear. I'd say they truly suit you, unimpressed and moistly dressed. I may decide to keep you. I open my mouth and drink down the sea. You'd drown in me. If savior sleep would cease to evade ... I'd dream it all away. I'm caught in the fall, when I'm [...]


In the face Of change That's when she turned to me and said "I'm not sure anymore" And there Amidst the waves and the cloudless skies That blanket the year before I watch my life wash ashore Have you ever been a part of something That you thought would never end? And then, of [...]

Everything As Planned

I don't sleep at night I just lay and think About if everything went just how I've planned And how nothing is going how I've planned I'm tied down to the bed I've made The one I've said that I have left I shouldn't speak before I know I've built and rebuilt the bed [...]


I won’t accept your fear Another stagnant year I'm pro-American but anti-politician They'll trade you a voice For an illusion of choice Truth hits like a god damn premonition Inroads to the hangman's noose We got a lot to lose Is this where you wanna be? Exhumed they're not through with you Until you're [...]

Face Of The Earth

They take our pictures as Angels and Kings We’re all pretending we’re someone One percenters or stars to be, jewels of the Midwest It’s always taken the best of me Locked it away and broke the key To this house of stairs and misery at the bottom displaced me Fake and make no hesitation [...]

Fade Away

Faint Resemblance

Fainting Spells

Give me this before I slip, Before I sink, because I think, I think I may have found the short way down. Just give me something Cold and clear- The love spent here, As I had feared means nothing dear. I pray to reason I'll forget. I'll trade what's left. Just give me something! I'm [...]

Falling Asleep On A Stranger

Falling Down

Cut through the skin with knives of words I'm still bleeding out questions of nerve What will it take to sort this out? It's still lodging it's blade in my heart Silence hurts more than the worst sound Now it's too late to call Say I'm wrong and throw the first round I'm still [...]

Farewell To Shady Glade

You know that you were my collection, an addiction out of style. All these words you said to me, you know they mean so much. All these words you said to me, you know they mean so much to me. You were nothing but a style, I wish, I could believe that lie. You [...]

For Stevie Wonders Eyes Only

It's 3:18, mouth tastes like the corpse of every pregnant teen, The minutes are hours, the hours are days, I feel infected by your presence, you speak in tongues, I smell the lies dancing on your blackened lungs, I whispered in her ear: Fear me dear, for I am Death, I'll take your hope, [...]

Forget Your Heart

Fight these eyes, They're drawing you, inside. Sign the name in marker, Watch the clouds as they got darker. Felt it start to slip away. All the schemes were made and plotted, All the rules have been forgotten now. I made it by the skin of my teeth again this time. I'm waiting, Still [...]

I feel like a runaway Seeing the light of day For the first time, I'm drawing the line It's hard to care when you know it all In slow motion I watch you fall Like you're blind, thoughts poison the mind I always bend when it comes to you I think you'll change, but [...]

Friends In Fallriver

Let's go! Your life lives half a nation away, my heart hurts so. I believe letting you go was the biggest mistake of my life. What did I do? Alone and confused. What can I say? What can I do? I'm heading the wrong way home. Knowing alone is alone. It's just too difficult [...]

From Heads Unworthy

We are the children you reject and disregard These aching cries come from the bottom of our hearts You can't disown us now, we are your own flesh and blood And we don't disappear just because your eyes are shut, Now tell me Love, Loss Like a bullets path Tear, Through The cavity of [...]


Let's fuck, til the sun comes up Because we haven't got long but we got enough A night to remember A day to forget (Don't stop till we pirouette) I'm not saint You're no martyr One more night playing heart piñata How do you say goodbye? How do you say goodbye, when you've hardly [...]

Generation Lost

Greater Than 84

There's an open sky and an empty city Where the rain falls every night Upon precious flames we once found so pretty Our frail and only light Love is all that's left and I'm emotionless You won't read it in the papers In this time, keep your hands clean, just read my mind We're trapped [...]

Hairline Fracture

A sinking ship, an awkward kiss A chance to set things straight The kind of hurt that burns and burns Like fires we can't contain We hole up in a shelter made of bones and ice and there we'll wait So start again with steady hands This time nothing gets in our way But [...]

Hell Above

Help Is On The Way

I have my mother's dreams, I have my father's eyes, You can't take that from me, Just go ahead and try. The crescent city sleeps, While giants in the sky, Preparing to unleash, Let loose a mighty cry. Can nobody save us? Will anyone try? The bayou is burning, The cypress is dying. And [...]

Here's to the past Let's all think back on what brought us here This is my grasp on what is real Don't tell me how I feel With all that's passed I can't relate With myself from day to day why does everything seem so far away to me There's no turning back from [...]

Hero Of War

He said "Son, have you seen the world? Well, what would you say if I said that you could? Just carry this gun and you'll even get paid." I said "That sounds pretty good." Black leather boots Spit-shined so bright They cut off my hair but it looked alright We marched and we sang [...]

Cross my heart, I don't want to die. But heaven knows it seems like I try. Lost in a labyrinth for weeks on end. I live and I learn from my mistakes, then I forget them again. Got a feeling in my stomach that just won't quit. It's subtle as a shotgun. Heavy as [...]


Everything around me seems so much different than where I'm from And at this rate I think my fate's been sealed This life's so unpredictable We'll go continue to live a life that no one knows Where's this gonna go? Right here, right now This is the beginning of the end And I won't [...]


Sometimes I feel so wronged, like I've been held down. I feel my heart like a rock, it's sinking. These days can get so dark, like an eclipse in the sky But I can rise above, I can find the light. I can run, I can change all the answers Or what I hoped [...]

Hospital For Souls

I Am The Arsonist

Throwing up with the thought of you two, How could you do this? My best friend with my bride, Now you tell me you are leaving. They'll see your fire through the dark night sky I hope your home when I arrive. If there's a pyre in the afterlife, I'll be there again to [...]

I Am Trying Very Hard To Be Here

Before you came what was your name? Did you look like me? No one's from here, no one my dear, not even the trees. So change your name, just keep your face. We're temporary anyway. Before you came we played this game in our masquerade. Flash, Flash, Car Crash we're no fixtures. Quick, now, Quick [...]

I Can’t Make Your Decisions For You

I've led a horse to water But he turned and ran as soon as I turned my back It seems as if the way here Wore worse on me than it did on him I feel like my words have only given way To brief intentions but no intent for action I've waited, I've [...]

I Don’t Care If You’re Contagious

Bury me in the bedroom where I, I can sing you to sleep all night. Put me next to the open window, promise me a second time. 'Cause I don't want to leave without you buried by my side. I'd rather kill the one responsible for falling stars at night, 'cause they fall all [...]

I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore

On pins and needles we are waiting for the fall We count the days scratching lines on the wall Wait in the wings at someone's beck and call No longer recognize the place that I call home No longer recognize this face as my own Somewhere this fate, I lost control We backed down, [...]

I Heard It’s The Softest Thing Ever

Tonight I'm sending you a message This is the end of an era The end of second chances In the face of defeat I'm winning Yet you still have so much left to say Oh, they're coming straight for me Oh, they're coming straight for me Read between the lines We can't give in [...]

I Knew I Couldn’t Trust You

I knew I couldn't trust you back when we were kids. You sold me out; you ran and hid from all your problems. Can't even face your friends, your best friend. You're holding something in tonight and I can tell you're not alright. Your poker face concealing All the cards that you're not dealing. [...]

I Remember

I'd never wish any of this on anyone or anything. Aw come on, you gotta try and look at things like me. I never needed anything I got, I never keep anything I have, what do I have? Mostly things that'll never last. Then I think back... I remember when I first saw the [...]

I Survive

Holding on with all I have inside For the sake of my life I'm pulled underwater Crying out I call For anyone to share this fight But I'm sinking farther So weathered, Worn and battered, I will stay Keep treading, As I'm dreading the waves My hands are tied But I will make it [...]

I Will Illuminate

Another place repeating the mantra I’m here to stay ashamed of where I’ve been And what I’ve seen These eagle eyes that judge me Another face conceiving the moment It never leaves it’s stakes, it’s claim on me It’s stakes, it’s claim on me A visionary in hiding I’ll never make it I’ll never [...]

I Will Not Reap Destruction

Mindless. This mindless flesh that devours, it keeps me bound at the bottom. And to live in this flesh will keep me bound by myself. Hollowed out your heart to live this way. Was it that hard to let love fade? Lashing out, yet reserved. The mindless are easily lured in pain and perverse. [...]

I’d Rather Die Than Be Famous

I’m Already Gone

As I look round this make shift moving house I'm searching for whatever's left of me It's on the ground in a box that reads lost and found. It's lost and found. She said, just let it go. She said, it's all you've ever known. And I'm, I'm already gone I'm already something to [...]

Identity Disorder

Your heart is a fire But the cold is comforting My mouth is a liar With my silver tongue in cheek The silence is deafening My words cut deep The darkness is blinding Consuming me All I am is what I say So turn your back and walk away My words cut deep But [...]

If I Leave

Let's go! In the beginning I was up front Nothing to think about, you’d always hear me out We made a pact and never gave up When everything would change, we always stayed the same But something went wrong along the way You come around and there’s nothing left to say It's like we’re [...]

If You Could See Into My Soul

One, two, three, four! I hear you choking on your words again, the secrets in your throat. And I really wish you'd say what you're thinking. We've been down this road so many times before, my stomach cannot take it. I've been killing time, You've been crossing lines. You say: Get ready, get ready, [...]

In A Place Of Solace

A casket, opened up A family, can't reach in I may not have been What you wanted me to have been, for your first born Do they mourn my life or celebrate my death Do they celebrate my death This casket, close it up This casket, close it up No one speaks, no one [...]

In Florida

December ain't cold at all this year in Florida But I'm still chilled to the bone The mind plays tricks this time of year in Florida It's not the time to be alone I feel the less you love the less you feel alive I feel to understand it starts from the inside And [...]

In Memory Of

Fighting tears, trembling voice straight to my ear A moment I'll never forget Someone I love, telling me someone I love Had just been called to his reward 24, a leader, a father, adored We'll never be with him again Take me down to the garden behind the old house Sail away with me [...]

In Silent Seas We Drown

I'm running just like the wind, a moving current Feel it pushing faster, it's pushing faster I'm hiding you like a sin, a lonely liar See you taking after, you're taking after We have come so far against these odds Been on my back for way too long But now I realize it's not [...]

In The Dark

Tunnel your way in, it’ll spit you out I can hold it in it’s a godsend A heart like an hourglass on it’s end Does it matter if the love ever comes back? Does it matter if the sun ever comes back up? In the dark, in the dark When I close my eyes [...]


Do you spend your days counting the hours you're awake? And when night covers the sky you find yourself doing the same There's a burden you've been bearing in spite of all your prayers There's a light turned off inside your heart Can you remember what it's like to care? Knees are weak, hands [...]


The intent. I intend. The intentions of one will guide. I strive to speak what I have learned and learn from those I see. To step out of this life is my ambition. To speak out and show you what I have seen. I am one voice amidst the shouts of many. I cry [...]


Forgive all my sins I know I'll commit them I know what will happen When I trade reason for loss of control A call to arms With holes and scars With healthy minds we enlist into war You will see a shadow cast upon the light you know There will be an angel weeping [...]

It Never Ends

Started off with a one night stand, Lingered to a fling, The sirens and the sergeants Didn't seem to mean a thing. Hide your fangs all you want, You still need the blood. Tell us that it's different now, You're up to no good. Take my hand, show me the way, We are the [...]

It Was Mine

Don't move Don't do anything What we captured got away, slipped from us Don't speak, don't don't say anything, they've been recording all we say for years now.

It Was Written In Blood

Goodbye, my friend, goodbye. My love, you're in my heart. It was preordained that we should part. And be reunited by and by, reunited by and by. Goodbye: no handshake to endure. No there's nothing. It was written in blood [x3] Oh god, written in blood. It was written in blood [x2] Oh my [...]

It’s Complicated

Here we go again, another night of being bummed. I'll keep to myself, avoid the sun, And cancel plans with everyone I know. Cause this is how it always ends: Our bond will break cause you can’t relate To anyone, to anything at all. You brought your worst and I’m right here. Now I've [...]

She's on the prowl. She wants it all and she'll stop at nothing! Everyone knows she's well aware of the fact that her self respect was long lost on her search for something. First in line to give it up to the guy at the bar buying two drinks at a time. One track [...]

John Deux Trois

I've said it once or twice, I'm coming down to show you the way to live with my hand. Inner me, I know you are killing me from inside. You can laugh, you can laugh but don't waste my time. You pessimistic, you cannibal. Don't believe me, cause I'm already dead. Don't believe me, [...]

Kill Caustic

So, I'm feeling much worse now. You're better, you're better. Your designer drug won't work, won't work for me. Connect to a three volt. I hope your battery dies. How could you run on such, on such voltage? All the same, I remain the one to blame and I'm demonized, purified, justified as you let [...]

Kill The Lights

A perfect silence begging you to speak. An anchor driving down inside you holding down your feet. Kill the lights and just start it over, start it over, Again we'll fake it, we'll beg to make it. Forget everything we said and just start it over, start it over. A new spark lights inside [...]

King For A Day

Kiss And Control

Watch the stars turn you to nothing. Now blush and smile as they whisk you away. Part your lips a bit more, I'll swallow your fear. I will show you how all the bite marks impress a need to be here, a need to see city lights, like rain, dance and explode, fall upon debutants [...]

Kotov Syndrome

La Marseillaise

Arise! The children of the fatherland. The day of glory as arrived. Against us tyranny. The bloody standard is raised. The bloody standard is raised.

This night will fall like any other Daylight subsides and shadows crawl Out from under black corners Hiding something stirs All so restless Cracked windows open wide Dead-bolt turns. Doors creak open Whispers and moonlight there to guide Come raise your lantern to the sky Can we illuminate this night? We'll dance like heathens [...]

Go! Our plans are all [...]

Last Days Of Summer

The bright light beams From her eyes Like broken glass. Or a broken heart, Who would have guessed? You'd leave me here. Beneath my eyes I feel the tears, I hold back. I won't leave, leave this way again. I won't leave this way. As my legs They start to shake, I feel nothing. [...]

Late On 6th

Leave All The Lights On

Guess things didn't go the way that you planned I missed the days when you would understand the way that I am. You have me feeling lonely and detached. Every time I'm moving forward we take two steps back. I need to have a moment to myself. County lines, clear my mind with someplace [...]

Life Less Frightening

Suffering from something We're not sure of In a world There is no cure for These lives we live Test negative for happiness Flat line, no pulse, but eyes open Single file like soldiers on a mission If there's no war outside our heads Why are we losing? [Chorus: x2] I don't ask for [...]

Life Lessons Learned The Hard Way

Life lessons learned the hard way. Four people waited in a random white unmarked van. Parked outside your hotel high rise garage. To use a tire iron to break the bones inside your legs. Too bad you never came outside, that's all right, 'Cause in the end you'll get wrecked. Yeah, in the end, [...]

Little Boxes

Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes made of ticky-tacky, Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes, all the same. There's a green one and a pink one And a blue one and a yellow one They're all made out of ticky-tacky, And they all look just the same. And the people in houses [...]

We live to kill each other We are the wealthy and the poor We shout but we don't listen All we want is more Shut the door You're letting the darkness out It's just about the time to watch you die Close the blinds We're hiding our skin from sun Where you become yesterday's [...]

Love With Caution

The river's running fast right now. It's the time of year the water cleanses itself. Running wild, but always in control. And now's the time to sever the ties.

Make It Stop (September’s Children)

Woah, woah. Bang bang go the coffin nails, Like a breath exhaled, Then gone forever. It seems like just yesterday, How did I miss the red flags raise? Think back to the days we laughed We braved these bitter storms together. Brought to his knees he cried, But on his feet he died. What [...]

Miles Away

I pack my bags and say goodbye to my wife For what seems like the millionth time. They said it gets easier, but they lied. She looks at me and says "really baby, I will be just fine," but then she looks away so I don't have to see her cry. And that is [...]

My Life For Hire

Somebody give me a sign, That everything's going as planned, And then everything falls away, Into the darkness of this shallow place.

Oh why do you try and pull me under? Trust me I am already dead I've been digging my own grave for far too long now, And I don't mind waking up without in my bed. Oh when the sun comes up you will realize that you were wrong, And when your lungs collapse [...]

Not Enough

I take a deep breath into my lungs, Let it out and move on. I take a step back, And look at all that I've done. Why does it feel like I'm right back where I started from? How can it be I need more when I've already won? Just when I think I've [...]


Fragile leaves hit the ground. The cold air drifts into my lungs. I see your face through the fog. Reminds me of the dreams you lost. I can see it in your eyes. You're broken down; your hands are tied. I can feel it in my side. Over and over and over I've tried. [...]

OK, I Feel Better Now

There is nothing to me. There is nothing though there was a time I had felt elation before all sensation died. I cannot breathe. I can't deny that I've been feigning, for you, every vital sign defied. This means nothing to me. This means nothing so spare me the lies. I deny you sympathy just [...]

One Hundred Sleepless Nights

I can't wait to see your brilliant face Light up the room around the pillowcase She said, "can you come over to my LA place? I got something to tell you and it just can't wait." When I showed up, you held the door in tears, Sat on the couch under the chandelier. You [...]

One Last Dance

I shot this glance to you In a minute I’ll be gone But not because I didn’t want to No one wants to dance So I’m standing on my feet Nobody takes the chance To break the law to start the beat So I’m sitting this one out I’m planning on my own I’m [...]

One Way Ticket

Every moment we shared, I used to miss Every dream we get, I let it fade Feeling low for so long, I'm wearing thin Now I need this time to make a change Won't turn around, I need to feel the runway and turning wheels So elevate lifting me It's getting easier to breathe [...]

Out Of Time

I’ve never felt so sober I’ve never felt the low that I feel tonight Your words made everything drag on and on I finally found her, and when I did I just couldn’t make things right. Is this really happening? Oh God I think I just ruined my life What the fuck am I [...]

Over My Head (Cable Car)

I never knew I never knew that everything was falling through That everyone I knew was waiting on a >cue< To turn and run when all I needed was the truth But that's how it's got to be It's coming down to nothing more than apathy I'd rather run the other way than stay [...]

Paper Wings

One last thing I beg you please just before you go I've watched you fly on paper wings halfway around the world Until they burned up in the atmosphere and sent you spiraling down landing somewhere far from here with no one else around to catch you falling down and I'm looking at you [...]


Go! Expect the worst of everyone I meet Count the clock cause I can't fucking sleep Shooting pain like a heart attack Call my friends I might not make it back The doctor says I'm headed for destruction Something's gotta give I'm like a time bomb ticking in your head Paranoia clouding your judgement [...]

People Live Here

My God is better than yours And the walls of my house are so thick I hear nothing at all I followed you out in the storm But it carried you off And I burned every picture of yours Was that not enough? My gun is bigger than yours So let's arm the masses [...]


Somewhere along the line you must have missed the point, This is not about you. You twist the words of The Gospel to glorify yourself, But this is not about you! Take the spotlight off the things that you've done, And realize he did what you never could. He carries the weight that you [...]


So caught up in our own day-to-day, We see lives in need and look the other way. I'm not a pessimist, but I think it's safe to say this would be different if it was your family. We can't fathom not having a place to rest our heads. Can you imagine the pain of [...]

Pray For Plagues

PRAY!!! She starts her new diet, of liquor and dick, Just like Hollywood but laced in sick. The sun goes down and so does she. The sun goes down and so does she. Sold out the love that she had left with a cut of the throat. Drinks all round on her before she [...]

Prayer Of The Refugee

Warm yourself by the fire, son, And the morning will come soon. I’ll tell you stories of a better time, In a place that we once knew. Before we packed our bags And left all this behind us in the dust, We had a place that we could call home, And a life no [...]

Present, Future, And Past

It consumes me, controls me, leaves me with nothing, but you know that I love how it taste! Fear and the fate, I'll change face to get what I crave. Fill my veins! This gets me by. (You know it feels good, you know it feels so good!) The drugs that keep me high. [...]

Props & Mayhem

Self-medicate. While they sleep we let the night chase evil things away, and we're like animals, homesick from shows. We gotta kill everything before the night gets wasted. Maybe it seems so strange, but we don't even stress at all. 'Cause we've got poison in our well. Come at me with everything you've got. [...]

Prove Me Right

We put our lives in the hands of the ones that claimed they truly cared. Come to find it's all just a lie and when we needed them no one was there. I swear I'm not bitter. I just see them for what they are; Money hungry cowards sucking the blood out of artists [...]

Quantity Is Their Quality

I do not know the American Gentlemen. God forgive me for putting such words together. Undone you're no different than all the rest, a life full of greed with no heart in your chest. Full to your throats you cry out STARVATION! Oh what a joke and waste of creation. You are the only [...]

Quit Your Job

Rabbits Are Roadkill On Rt. 37

What once did exist, Now is meaningless. And doesn't it seem funny, How soon you did forget All the words that have lost their weight But I remember, I remember Desperation. Devastation. All I truly know (All that I know) Is isolation. Self-damnation. All light that I'd owned Unshared and worthless now What I knew [...]

Rain Will Fall

It was just another day Cars were driving by and people lined the streets We were walking side by side But there was something on my mind And I couldn't bear to walk another step with this inside The rain will fall and wash it all away Our fears will call There's some things [...]

Re-Education (Through Labor)

To the sound of a heartbeat pounding away To the rhythm of the awful rusted machines We toss and turn but don't sleep Each breath we take makes us thieves Like causes without rebels Just talk but promise nothing else We crawl on our knees for you Under a sky no longer blue We [...]

Ready To Fall

Hold on slow down again from the top now and tell me everything I know I've been gone for what seems like forever But I'm here now waiting To convince you that I'm not a ghost or a stranger But closer than you think She said, "just go on to what you Pretend is [...]


I have come undone Desperate and out of touch Fall when I should run Am I worth a reassemble? I have come undone This illness is my crutch Call out to anyone Am I worth a reassemble? I toss, turn beneath the waves A silent victim of the depths Cast aside I'm scrambling to [...]

Reception Fades

[Spoken:] (It is, in the end, whatever the Hell I want it to be, And when I'm through with it, it's gonna blow a hole, This wide, straight through the worlds own idea of itself. They're throwing bottles at your house. Come on, lets go break their arms.) You talk about the way things [...]


Pull me up Pull me out of this mess I didn't mean the things I said Take my word Take my word and trust I didn't mean the things I said But once they moved past my lips, it was done If only they will be forgotten But once they moved past my lips, [...]

Red In Tooth & Claw

It always ends the same. I gave you all my heart just to watch it get thrown away, thrown away! It takes a toll on my soul because I'm starting to believe that love's just a game we play. Is it all just a game? One day I'll heal but I'll be covered in [...]

Red Light Pledge

Remains of Summer Memories

Repeating Apologies

I hope you know, I swear, I've never done this before, And I care, I'm so sorry. Scarred you for life. Please come back to me, down on my knees. Repeating apologies. Why do I deny the heart that's grown colder. Too quick to criticize the lullaby. Why do I deny the heart that's [...]

Replace You

I'm the setting sun behind the trees, the saddest one you've seen. I've been burning holes and breaking dreams, and I regret it. I'm fixing things I've broken, it's not as easy as it used to be. I'm throwing temper tantrums. I used to settle, but now I make a scene. You can't believe... [...]


Lie awake, keep your cold eyes closed Feel it crawl upon your chest Bear it's teeth and steal your breath Stay awake as its creeping close If you're brave enough you'll see As it stares it looks a lot like me It looks like me Though there's no way I will materialize Let the ghost [...]

Right Back At It Again

We're coming out swinging! Started out in the spring of 2003. Never went to school, nobody talked to me. Except to tell me all the things I couldn't do. Don't want to hear about it. Got with my guys packed into all our cars. Hit all the nearest scenes and every local bar Played [...]

Right Where You Want Me To Be

Roads That Don’t End And Views That Never Cease

You are so far away, And it strains on me to hear your voice everyday. You never know what you have until you're gone, So when it's over and I'm on my way back home, It feels like days before I'm next to you again. This is how we love. You're so far away, [...]


Tell me what I'm supposed to do, With all these left over feelings of you; 'Cause I don't know And tell me how I'm supposed to feel, When all these nightmares become real; 'Cause I don't know And I don't think you see the places inside me that I find you, And I don't [...]

Rodeo Clown

Did you know that I kept it for a year. All these times I figured you'd be here. HEY! The last time I saw you, I tried to move right through the crowd. And I was calling your name, but the band played too loud. The last time I saw you, I tried to [...]

Rumors Of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

So please don't ask me how I ended up at my wits end And breaking down Pages torn from books we never read, Cause we're plugged into this grid. Don't pull this plug right now, Or then we'd really have to live. When I die, will they remember not What I did, but what [...]


My heart's a hieroglyph, it talks in tongues Ten thousand voices fill my broken lungs But through the white wave, I still hear it call So take a deep breath, let's disappear No one will listen so why are we still here And in the black hole you will see it Cause this is [...]


It's so familiar to me; A gun in your hand, a hole in my chest, and now you strike a match and inhale. It's now to the point where it's all so routine, The anchor's up, your ship has been sailed. Close your eyes to fight the demons deep within your mind. Satisfy your [...]


I'm never gonna understand this. I'm never gonna let it be. I just can't understand this aged plan. It's obsolete. How could you recognize and cherish hysteric fairy tales. They've come to life. Now sit by and listen... the whole world wails. I feel as though I've been abducted, or maybe I am just misplaced, [...]

Same About You

I just felt a wave, an emotion And right then I knew that everything had changed A whole side of you that went missing's gone And all I'd thought of you is wrong Gotta step away for perspective Need to take a chance to clear my head Don't wanna understand your position Oughta wash [...]

Same Book But Never The Same Page

I lost a part of me Cause I am just an open book for everyone to see. I always leave empty handed. I can’t keep the things that mean the most to me. I’m walking steady on a tightrope clinging only to the words that I wrote. I might be temporarily blind but I’m [...]


You can't feel the heat until you hold your hand over the flame You have to cross the line just to remember where it lays You won't know your worth now, son, until you take a hit And you won't find the beat until you lose yourself in it That's why we won't back [...]


It kills me not to know this but I've all but just forgotten What the color of her eyes were and her scars or how she got them As the telling signs of age rain down a single tear is dropping Through the valleys of an aging face that this world has forgotten There [...]

Savior Of The Week

What's the addiction here? Your taste for the insincere, Disposable high and you keep wanting more The world at your fingertips, but you can't get enough of it Disposable high that you just can't ignore. And I'm thinking that you're always gonna chase And that you're never gonna change And it leaves me wondering... [...]

Scenes From Parisian Life

The sun comes up a little later So you can drink a little longer I wish I had a dream last night I wish I had a dream last night So half the time you'd be here I wish you were here I'm on your vine now, so high, I can see Italy

Searching, Seeking, Reaching, Always

I always knew I’d never reach perfection, and if I ever did then I wasn’t trying hard enough. Because there is always something more to reach for. And every end is just the start to something else. I think that if we ever stopped seeking out what it is that keeps us growing, then [...]

Second and Sebring

Sight Unseen

Sight unseen, the road stretched out before me. Suffocate - the water rising slowly. Step in time, agree to share this pain. Live or die now, but still we suffer just the same! I took my share and then told her, "I don't want more" We spend our lives, then ask you, what was [...]

Silver and Cold

I... I came here by day, but I left here in darkness And found you, found you on the way And now, it is silver and silent, it is silver and cold You, in somber resplendence, I hold Your sins into me Oh, my beautiful one Your sins into me As a rapturous voice escapes, [...]

Sin & Redemption

We kill time with sleep and heal the heartache of thousands, at the cost of ruining ourselves Take it for granted. We hone skills of cons and steal the same hearts and bodies. On our knees we're begging to be by ourselves, but only in our heads. Only in our heads. You're laying down [...]

Six Ways ‘Til Sunday

Sleep Around

Start with the best intent you've earned it. Promise was made not kept you've burned it. Sleep around, you sleep around. He's driving around his stomach churning.

Sleep With One Eye Open

Fuck you, You took what you wanted and left, like locusts. Everything I gave to you, everything that we've been through You bled me dry and then left, like leeches. Go, you got what you could now leave, like vultures Ripped apart in minutes what was built in seven years The ink scarred on [...]

Sleepless Nights

I stare deep down into the eyes of my nightmares As they come to life (As they come to life) I feel my heart beat right out of my chest And I think I might be losing the fight I might be losing it I live inside my poisoned mind It leaves me paralyzed [...]

You wanna take, take, take, take, take it away from me. Take it away from me. You can't wait, wait, wait, wait, wait till I'm stumbling. Go get carried away. Go! And the fears sets in, in an instant. Too much of myself gets exposed. This is where I go at my weakest, When [...]


And I can't protect this anymore. I can't reflect this light, that you shine on me. So I'm giving up, not giving in. I'm selling out, not selling in. Judge me for what I've done not who I am. So take your shot now, so take your swing. Start a fight because you know [...]

Sound Of The Sun

You've cast these scars across my face You can't bring me down. You think I'll never be the same. Go! And I don't know what's wrong with me, I wanted to be all the things you need, All the things you need. And now I'm standing here alone, I'm waiting for it all to [...]

Please keep chasing me, you Southern constellations got me so dizzy. It's cold but you pretend that you are warm with me. Before I get you home you're nearly frozen, but I'll never let you freeze without me. Oh, no.

Space Enough To Grow

What do you see when you close your eyes? How do you feel when you see it? Who is to say that it isn't real? And why can't we lie to believe it, To believe in something? Look into the emptiness and step into the cold, Right between your body and your soul. Deep [...]

Speak Now, I’m Listening

Stay Away From My Friends

Waking up your neighbors downstairs, I've been inside your bedroom a thousand years. And as you tie me to the bed for good I say that I want you in the most unromantic way. Louisiana, you're torturing me with a beautiful face. Ana come on, I thought we had a damn good thing. A [...]

Stay Inspired

Why do we love only when it's convenient to us? Why do we love only when it's convenient to us? It is because we don't want to let go Of the security that a close heart holds? Or is it the risk of being broken? Too unbearable to even let the thought surface There [...]

Sticks & Bricks

I am fueled by all forms of failure. I paid the price, so I'll take what's mine. I bet you didn't see that one coming Cause I do as I please, apologize for nothing. My time is flying but I'm still second to none. Always shining the brightest when I'm placed under the gun [...]

Still Dreaming

2 a.m., I lie down deep in slumber. Feelings are falling downward. I want to forget. Waking up, I hear the way your voice sounds. My heart starts to pound, now... To the rhythm of yours. You're so angelic. Your words so symphonic. Touch your lips to my soul, eat this sorrow away. How [...]

Suicide Season

We stare at broken clocks, the hands don't turn anymore The days turn into nights, empty hearts and empty places The day you lost him, I slowly lost you too For when he died, he took a part of you No time for farewells, no chances for goodbyes No explanations, no fucking reasons why [...]

Summer Shudder

Listen when I say, when I say it’s real. Real life goes undefined, why must you be so missable? Everything you take makes me more unreal. Real lines are undefined, how can this be so miserable?

Somewhere between happy, and total fucking wreck Feet sometimes on solid ground, sometimes at the edge To spend your waking moments, simply killing time Is to give up on your hopes and dreams, to give up on your... Life for you, (who we are) has been less than kind So take a number, (who [...]

Survivor Guilt

("What are you talking about? America is not going to be destroyed." "Never? Rome was destroyed, Greece was destroyed, Persia was destroyed, Spain was destroyed. All great countries are destroyed.

Tangled In The Great Escape

Well don't you say that I had a part of it. Guess we'll never know. Or would you say that I had a part of it? Well, I guess we'll never know. Constant recovery. I see you choke and it takes my breath away. But all is good, we close our eyes. They all [...]

Tear It Down

The Answer

I hit the bottom of my lowest lows. My darkest hours are the times I grow, And every time I am broken I know that it's only so I can be restored. I never would have found my way, If I didn't realize I was lost in the first place. Amazing grace how sweet [...]

The Approaching Curve

[Spoken:] The music played with a calming frequency. The speakers gently seeped the sound of ambient keyboards and light percussion, creating a seductive soundtrack to our midnight drive through curtains of blackness. The windows were cold to the touch, reflecting the icy conditions in our immediate extremity. Salt stains and fingerprints littered the glass, [...]

The Art Of Losing

I'm not fucking blind to the way That you talk around the truth Not just what you say But what you do Played this tug of war way too fucking long Like every time Again I've lost You've won You took advantage of the trust that I gave (I gave!) Took my forgiveness Rubbed [...]

The Artist

(You! You!) The artist's palette falls, The paint is spilled with blood. Someone shot him down, Left him without his soul.

The Balcony Scene

The Black Market

A currency of heartache and sorrow The air we breathe is stale with mold To shadows we are slaves digging deeper every day But emptiness is growing so old Headlamps light the tunnels we wander They shimmer and they dance on the walls We're lost inside these caves as the chances of escape Grow [...]

The Boy Who Could Fly

Freeze! It's time to take you home, it feels so early but I promised I would bring you to your door. Now our lips are numb! As we walk, sharing warm alcohol That kiss tastes like summer. I hope you like the stars I stole for you, One hundred million twinkle lights in neon [...]

The Continual Condition

A city drenching me in sin Atop these buildings we’re both sinking As we swim in our continual condition You found a way inside my head and left me hanging by a thread. Gutted out, replaying every line you said and thinking Why can’t I just forget it and why can’t I live without [...]

The Good Left Undone

In fields where nothing grew but weeds, I found a flower at my feet, Bending there in my direction, I wrapped a hand around its stem, I pulled until the roots gave in, Finding there what I'd been missing, But I know... So I tell myself, I tell myself it's wrong. There's a point [...]

The Great Die-Off

There’s a fire on the borders and it’s burning down the walls you built high And there’s a steady stream of anger and it’s spilling from the coasts A tidal wave And the words say we reap what we sow So where I bury you I’ll build home In line to reclaim but we’re [...]

The Reality

These streets are crowded with cowards disguised as men. They are paying no consequence for their actions, So we'll all give in. I say the same things Over and over and over again, But you act like you've never heard them. We were created to set an example. So what is this, what is [...]

Too Shy To Scream

I come quietly. Silent entities can lack a certain weight when unseen. Do they speak of me? My voice left with the breeze that whispered "you should flee or you shall be seen." I'd die if you only met my eyes. Before you pass by, will you pause to break my heart. I am everywhere, [...]

Turn Off The Radio

T-T-T-Turn off the radio There's something missing There's an anger living half the world away I hope you listen for a person With perspective that isn't always the same No need to water it down right now You play the victim, but it's all a charade Times they, they are a-changin' Get your things [...]

Understanding What We’ve Grown To Be

Veronica Sawyer Smokes

Oh my story is not the oldest of it's kind. I was too touched to see you clearly, far too young to realize I had loved so dearly you, who's world I had designed, but the sweet smoke came with mirrors and it brought tears to my wide eyes. Dying just to see you... dying [...]

Views That Never Cease, To Keep Me From Myself

I am so far away And it's more than I can take I haven't heard your voice in days I haven't heard your voice in days What is the measure of a man? Is it wading through the worst? Or is the measure of a man Admitting when he is defeated? But I am [...]

Violence (Enough Is Enough)

Who Wants Flowers When You’re Dead? Nobody

A cherry sunset blossoms, But we're not there to watch it fall, On the vacant canvas, we should be waiting, with our face down on the grass, Staring till our eyes give way, Let's paint this city black, While the night's still young, You, This cherry sunset withers, Our words, as frail as paper, [...]

World On Fire

I let it go and watched it fly, So far away out of my sight. I trusted in your eagle eye. I let it go. I let it go. I dug a hole into the ground. I hid my chest, it won't be found. I took a breath without a sound. I let it [...]

Worlds Apart

Lying all alone, wishing you would call. Writing all my thoughts has broken all my bones. You gave it all up, you threw it all away. There's nothing I can do. What do I think you've done? You know it's even worse than what's in my head. You don't believe me when I tell [...]

You’re Lucky It’s Not 1692

I've got some things to say. I believe this announcement is over due. My days blended together seamlessly and who knew? The error of my ways in this world becomes so severe. The day she interrupted my life it all fell, but she was so sincere. I've known some witches this town will still [...]
