torn
peace is what they tell me
love am i unholy
lies are what they tell me
despise you that control me
the peace is dead in my soul
i have blamed the reasons for my intentions poor
yes im the only one
who would carry on this far
torn, im filthy
born in my own misery
stole all that you gave me
control you claim you save me
the peace is dead in my soul
i have blamed the reason for my
intentions poor
yes im the one who
the only one who
would carry on this farback to top
ode
hange me, watch awhile
let me see you smile as i die
take me, my body burns
let me see you yearn, while i cry
one step on your own
and you walk all over me
one head in the clouds
you wont let go
youre too proud
one light to the blind and they see
one head touch on the head, we believe
adore me as i drift away
let me hear you say im fine
you cry as my body dies
one step on your own and you walk all over me
one head in the clouds
you wont let go, youre too proud
one light to the blind, and they see
one touch on the head, we believeback to top
my own prison
a court is in session, a verdict is in
no appeal on the docket today
just my own sin
the walls are cold and pale
the cage made of steel
screams fill the room
alone i drop and kneel
silence now the sound
my breath the only motion around
demons cluttering around
my face showing no emotion
shackled by my sentence
expecting no return
here there is no penance
my skin begins to burn
so i held my head up high
hiding hate that burns inside
which only fuels their selfish pride
we're all held captive
out from the sun
a sun that shines on only some
we the meek are all in one
i hear a thunder in the distance
see a vision of a cross
i feel the pain that was given
on that sad day of loss
a lion roars in the darkness only he holds the key
a light to free from my burden and bring me life eternally
shouldve been dead
on a sunday morning
banging my head
no time for mourning
aint got no time
so i held my head up high
hiding hate that burns inside
which only fuels their selfish pride
we're all held captive
out from the sun
a sun that shines only some
we the meek are all on in one
i cry out to god seeking only his decision
gabriel stands and confirms
ive created my own prisonback to top
pity for a dime
an artificial season
covered by rain
losing all my reason
cause there's nothing left to blame
shadows paint the sidewalk
a living picture in a frame
see the sea of people
all their faces look the same
so i sat down for a while
forcing a smile
in a state of self-denial
is it worthwhile
sell my pity for a dime
just one dime
plain talk can be the easy way
signs of losing my faith
so i sat down for a while
forcing a smile
in a state of self denial
is it worthwhile
sell my pity for a dime
just one dime
sell my pity for a dime
'just one dimeback to top
in america
only in america
we're slaves to be free
only in america we kill the unborn
the make ends meet
only in america
sexuality is democracy
only in america we stamp our goal
"in god we trust"
what is right or wrong?
i dont know who to believe in
my soul sings a different song
in america
church bells ringing
pass the plate around
the choir is singing
as their leader falls to the ground
please mr prophet man
tell me which way to go
i gave my last dollar
can i still come to your show
what is right or wrong?
i dont know who to believe in
in america
i am right and you are wrong
i am right and you are wrong
i am right and you are wrong
no ones right and no ones wrong
in americaback to top
illusion
the sun rises to another day
my constitution keeps changing
til it slips away
so i lie awake and stare
my mind thinking, just wondering
is anybody there?
should i stay or go
should i sleep or stay awake
am i really happy or is it all just an illusion
sitting in my room now
hiding thoughts
just hoping one day ill get out
i hear a voice call my name
breaking trance, so silent
so i can stay the same
should i stay or go
should i sleep or stay awake
am i really just happy or is it all
just an illusion
wait now, things left unsaid
this life remains the same
but i change
i try to fool myself in believing
things are going to get better
but life goes on
should i stay or go
should i sleep or stay awake
am i really happy or is it all
just an illusionback to top
unforgiven
i kept up
with the prophecy you spoke
i kept up with the message inside
last sight of the irony
of twisted fate
lost sight of my soul and its void
think im unforgiven to this worldback to top
Sister
Caught up in the middle had no choice had no choice
Birthright forgotten so silent, no voice
(chorus)
I see you
You know who
Little girl, little girl
Now realize little girl over looked little girl
Bottled up and empty holding back
At loss your forgotten getting back get back
Expectations of another
Love given to the younger
Broken father, Broken brother
Emptiness feeds the hunger
(chorus)
change change changeback to top
What's This Life For?
Hurray for a child that makes it through
If there's any way, because the answer lies in you
Their laid to rest, before they know just what to do
Their souls are lost, because they could never find
What's this life for
I see your soul it's kind of gray
I see your heart, you look away
You see my wrist, I know your pain
I know your purpose on your plane
Don't say a last prayer, because you could never find
What's this life for
But they ain't here anymore
Don't have to settle the score
Cause we all live under the reign of one kingback to top
One
Affirmative may be justified take from one give to another
The goal is to be unified take my hand be my brother
The payment silenced the masses sanctified by oppression
Unity took a back seat sliding further in regression
(chorus)
One oh One the only way is One
I feel angry I feel helpless, want to change the world
I feel violent I feel alone, don't try and change my mind
Society blind by color why hold down one to raise another
Discrimination now on both sides seeds of hate blossom further
The world is heading for mutiny, when all we want is unity
We may rise and fall, but in the end we meet our fate together
(chorus)back to top
