The Package
Perfect Circle - The Package




New Track from A Perfect Circle
Sketchy Lyrics but still worth a look.
A.B oltch



Clever gotten this far,
and tricking got me in,
I am wot Im ater,
Don't even got a friend,
smile and drop the cliche,
so you think im whisperin,
teach us what I came for,
or Im out the door againn,

Peripheral on the package,
Don't care to settle in,
Time to feed the monster,
I dont need another friend,
comfort is a mystery,
crawling out of my own skin,
just give me what I came for,
or Im out the door again,

Lie to get in what I came for,
Lie to get in just what I need,
Lie to get in what i'm craving,
Lie and smile to get whats mine,

I am what Im after,
dont need another friend,
I don't watch your lips move,
if you leave me to pretend,
Because clever got me this far,
then tricking got me in,
teach us what I came for,
then Im out the door again,

Lie to get in what I came for,
Lie to get in what I need now,
Lie to get in what Im craving,
Lie and smile to get whats mine,

Get this to me,
Min Mine Mine,
Take Whats Mine,

Mine Mine Mine,
Take Whats Mine,

Mine Mine Mine,

Lie to get in what i came for,
Lie to get in what I need now,
Lie to get in what I crave,
Lie to smile and get whats mine,

Give this to me,
Cant Take whats mine,
Mine Mine Mine,

Take Whats Mine,
Mine Mine Mine,back to top
Weak and Powerless
tilling my own grave to keep me level
jam another dragon down the whole
digging to the rhythm and tyhe echo of a solitary siren,
one that pushes me along and leaves me so
desperate and ravenous
i'm so weak and powerless over you

someone feed the monkey while i dig in search of china
white as dracula as i approach the bottom
so desperate and ravenous
i'm so weak and powerless over you

little angel, go away
come again some other day
the devil has my ear today
i'll never hear a word you say
he promised i would find a little solace and some peace of mind
whatever
just as long as i don't feel so
desperate and ravenous
i'm so weak and powerless over youback to top
The Noose
Perfect Circle - The Noose




so glad to see you well
overcome and completely silent now
without a sound
you cast your demons out.
And not to pull your halo down
around your neck
and tug you from your cloud

but I'm more than just a little curious
how you're planning to go about making your ammends...
to the dead...
to the dead...

recall the deads as if they're all
someone elses
atrocious stories
now you stand reborn before us all
so glad to see you well
and not to pull your halo down
around your neck and tug you to the ground

but I'm more than just a little curious
how you're planning to go about making your ammends...
to the dead...
to the dead...

with your halo slipping down
your halo slipping...
your halo slipping down...
your halo slipping down...
your halo slipping down...
more than just a little curious
how you're planning to go about this
your halo slipping down...
how you're planning to go about making your ammends..
your halo slipping down...
more than just a little curious how you're planning to go about making your ammends...
your halo slipping down...

to choke you nowback to top
Blue
I didn't want to know
I just didn't want to know
Best to keep things in the shallow end
Cause i never quite learned how to swim

I just didn't want to know
Didn't want, didn't want,
Didn't want, didn't want

Close my eyes just to look at you
Taken by the seamless vision
I close my eyes,
Ignore the smoke,
Ignore the smoke,
Ignore the smoke

Call it aftermath, she's turning blue
Such a lovely color for you
Call it aftermath, she's turning blue
While I just sit and stare at you

Because I don't want to know
I didn't want to know
I just didn't want to know
I just didn't want

Mistook their nods for an approval
Just ignore the smoke and smile

Call it aftermath, she's turning blue
Such a lovely color for you
Call it aftermath, she's turning blue
Such a perfect color for your eyes
Call it aftermath, she's turning blue
Such a lovely color for you
Call it aftermath, she's turning blue
While I just sit and stare at you

I don't want to know

Vanishing
Perfect Circle - Vanishing




disappear
disappear
higher
higher
into the air
slowly
disappear
no, no, longer here

disappear
disappear
thinner
thinner
into the air
never really here
what doesn't ever...
ever, ever, ever...

(whispered) go with the wind... (repeated)

there she
recovers
silent, slowly

disappear

A Stranger
Perfect Circle - A Stranger




cast a calming apple
up and over satellites
to draw out the timid wild one
to convince you it's alright
and I listen for the whisper
of your sweet insanity
while I'll forumlate denial
of your effect on me
a stranger
so, what do I care
you'll vanish today
not the first time I hear
or the last...

what am I to do with all this silence...

shy away
shy away phantom
run away
a terrified child
won't you move away phantom
I'm better off without you tearing my Will down...back to top
The Outsider
a perfect cirlce - the outsider




help me if you can
it's just that this
is not the way I'm wired
so could you please
help me understand why
you've given into all these
reckless dark desires, you're
lying to yourself again
suicidal imbecile
think about it
cut it on a fault line
what will it take to get through to you precious?
I'm over this why do you want to throw it away like this?
Such a mess, I don't want to watch you...

Disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time
What's your rush now?
Everyone will have his day to die...

Medicated...
Drama queen...
Picture perfect
Numb-belligerence
Narcissistic
Drama queen
Craving fame and all itís decadence

Lying through your teeth again
suicidal imbecile
think about it
cut another fault line
what will it take to get it through to you precious?
I'm over this why do you want to throw it away like this?
Such a mess, I don't want to watch you...

Disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time
What's your rush now
Everyone will have his day to die...

They were right about you...
They were right about you...

Lying to my face again
suicidal imbecile
think about it and cut another fault line
what will it take to get through to you precious?
I'm over this, why do you want to throw it away like this?
such a mess... over this, over this....

Disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time
What's your hurry everyone will have his day to die
if you choose to pull the trigger
should your drama prove sincere
do it somewhere far away from here.back to top

The Nurse Who Loved Me
Perfect Circle - The Nurse Who Loved Me




Say hello to the rug's topography
It holds quite a lot of interest with your face down on it
Say hello to the shrinking in your head
You can't see it but you know it's there so don't neglect it

I'm taking her home with me all dressed in white
She's got everything I need pharmacy keys
She's falling hard for me I can see it in her eyes
She acts just like a nurse with all the other guys

Say hello to all the apples on the ground
They were once in your eyes but you sneezed them out while sleeping
Say hello to everything you've left behind
It's even more a part of your life now that you can't touch it

I'm taking her home with me all dressed in white
She's got everything I need some pills and a little cup
She's falling hard for me I can see it in her eyes
She acts just like a nurse with all the other guysback to top
Pet
Perfect Circle - Pet




Don't fret prescious I'm here
step away from the window
go back to sleep...

lay your head down child
I won't let the boogeyman come
count the bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
pay no mind to the rabble
pay no mind to the rabble
head down go to sleep to the rhythm of the war drums

pay no mind to what other voices say
they don't care about you
like I do
like I do..
safe from pain of truth and choice
and other poisoned devils
see they don't give a fuck about you
like I do...
just...
stay with me
safe and ignorant
go back to sleep
go back to sleep..

lay your head down child
I won't let the boogeyman come
count the bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
pay no mind to the rabble
pay no mind to the rabble
head down go to sleep to the rhythm of the war drums...

I'll be the one to protect you from
your enemies and all your demons
I'll be the one to protect you from
a will to survive and a voice of reason
I'll be the one to protect you from
your enemies and your choices son..
we're one and the same I must isolate you
isolate and save you from yourself

swaying to the rhythm of a new world order
count bodies like sheep to the rythem of the war drums
the boogeymen are coming
the boogeymen are coming
keep your head down go to sleep to the rhythm of the war drums...

stay with me...
safe and...
ignorant...
just stay with me...
hold you and protect you from the other ones..
the evil ones..
for I love you son...
go back to sleep...back to top

Gravity
Perfect Circle - Gravity




lost again
broken and weary
unable to
find my way...
tail in hand...
dizzy and clearly unable to..
just let this go..

I am surrendering
to the gravity in the unknown
catch me...
heal me...
lift me back up to the sun
I choose to live.

I fell again
like a baby unable to stand
on my own
tail in hand
dizzy and clearly unable to..
just let this go...

I am surrendering
to gravity and the unknown
catch me
heal me
lift me back up to the sun
I choose to live.
I choose to live.
I choose to live.

catch me
heal me
lift me back up to the sun...
help me survive the bottom..
calm these hands before...
they...
slip another pill...
drive another nail down...
another needy hole...
please..
release me..

I am surrendering
to gravity and the unknown
catch me
heal me
lift me back up to the sun...

I choose to live...
I choose to live...back to top
