Sand
(instrumental)back to top
Welcome to the Fold
You take my money
You think you're great
You think it's funny
I hate your face
Yeah
You got your jesus
And I got my space
You got your reasons
And I got my case

Chorus:
You just gotta sit your self down
To contemplate
You get yourself a nice cold beer
And drink yourself away
You're celebrating nothing
And you feel a-okay
You're celebrating nothing
And you feel a-okay

You think you're precious
And I think you're shit
And I'd kill your father
To destroy his seed
Oooohhh nothing will ever
Destroy your greed

Chorus

Now when you break yourself down
And go to this place
You give yourself the reason
To get off your case
And when you break it down yeah
And see through this shit
You give yourself the reason
To live through this
Break down

Mama give me my medicine
Mama give me my medicine
Mama give me my medicine
The one that makes me feel taller
Mama give me my medicine
Mama give me my medicine
The one that makes me feel so tall, tall like a tall tree
Mama give me my medicine
The one that makes me feel like a tall tree
Mama give me my medicine
That makes me feel like a tall tree
Mama give me my medicine
That makes me feel like a tall tree
That makes me feel like a tall tree
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Chorus

You're celebrating nothing
And you feel a-okay
You're celebrating nothing
And you feel a-okayback to top
Captain Bligh
I'll give you one good tiny reason I think you could believe
I'll give you one good tiny reason I think you could see through it
I'm not the kind of man that thinks the truth could hurt me
I'm not the kind of man that thinks the truth can see me
You know a little bit goes a long way
You know a little bit lasts a long time

And the time has come to undo the wrong I've done

I am a grieving man
I can't believe the things I've done to you
I am a guilty man
And I can't believe the things I've done to you

I give you one good tiny reason to push that big suit too far
I give you one good tiny reason to smash him and his big car
Everybody thinks I'm blue and what everybody thinks is true
Yeah
Just can't go it in stride
So you think it's you
So you think it's true
You know a little bit lasts a long time
You know a little bit goes a long way

And the time has come to undo the wrong I've done

And I am a grieving man
I can;t believe the things I've done to you
I am a beaten man
I can't believe the things I've done to you

And I am a blood soaked man
And I can't believe the things I've done to you
I am a guilty man
I can't believe the things I've done to you
And I am a grieving man
I can't believe hte things I've done to you
I am a beaten man
I can't believe the things I've done to you
(unintelligable gibberish)

I tried to pray
I tried to pray
I tried to pray
Yes I will give it a shot
Yes I will give it a shot
Yes I will give it a shot
Shot shotback to top
It's Gonna Kill Me
This girl's trying to kill me
This girl's trying to kill me
She's my favorite piece of plastic held to my ear
Where do I go
I don't know
Where do I play
I don't know
What do I say
I don't know
Whatever you say yeah shuh

Chorus:
Yeah
Its gonna kill me
Yeah
Its gonna kill me
Yeah

And this girl's got a grip, oh where's mine
I spent the last night walking home
I speant the last night dreaming
I spent the last night screaming
What do you need
I don't know
Where do you stay
I don't know
What do you mean
I don't know
Where do you go
I don't know

Got a green light gotta green light yeah

Gotta green light gotta red light yeah
No stop no stop I don't care

Gotta green light gotta green light yeah
But ya goin' nowhere

Chorus:
You know the best things in life aren't for me
You know the best things in life aren't for free

Gotta new life gotta new plight yeah
And it's going nowhere
On a mountaintop like a pin drop yeah
No God no thought I don't care
Every one of you could be the same
Every one of you can play this game
Gotta new life gotta new plight yeah
And it's going nowhere

Chorus

Gotta new find gotta new crime yeah

Take A Picture
Awake on my airplane
Awake on my airplane
My skin is bare
My skin is theirs
Awake on my airplane
Awake on my airplane
My skin is bare
My skin is theirs
I feel like a newborn
And I feel like a newborn
Awake on my airplane
Awake on my airplane
I feel so real

Chorus:
Could you take my picture?
Cuz I wont remember
Could you take my picture?
Cuz I won't remember

And I feel like a newborn
And I feel like a newborn
Kicking and screaming

Chorus

Hey dad what do you think about your son now
Ah hey dad what do you think about your son now

Chorus (x4)back to top
Skinny
So here you are in your small little world
Kept up like a little precious virgin girl
To hear about your grace and your silly face
Wrapped up like a knot in a ball of shoelace
And every time I talk to you
It sounds like you're caught in a psychological flu

Don't ever let them see you cheat
Don't ever let them see you bleed
Don't ever let them shake your hand
Don't ever let them believe that scam

Chorus:
Skinny
And it will make you cry
Skinny
And if it makes you soft inside
Skinny
At least you will not die

And if you take a good look at them
All caught up in their graciousless win
Every sin is their seamless smile
Will go on for a countless while
And just because they think they won
It just means that the shit has just begun

Don't ever let them see you cheat
Don't ever let them see you beat
Don't ever let them shake your hand
Don't ever let them believe that scam

Chorus

Yeah skinny skinny huhback to top
I Will Lead You
Come along take a ride 'cross the sky for an hour
Leave your mind take your soul fill the hole with your flowers
From the lake through the trees in the streets for the powder
In the creed for the freeze I gotta place for this power

Cuz I am a lie
(x4)

Chorus:
I will lead you for awhile
Take you place to place
Bring you to this pyre
See you face to face

Come along to this flick take your sympathy with your symphony
See this dish a wonderful wish it's the perfect kiss it's the real thing
See the pitch it's the greatest of hits it's the missing with the wishing
At least you caught a smile when you coughed awhile
When you did this kissing

Cuz I am a lie (x4)

I will lead you
I will lead you

See you face to face
Face to face
Yeahback to top
Cancer
I cross the oceans
I cross the seas
I cross the mountains
Like a new disease
I cross the borders
I cross the line
Never to see the light
Til the end of time
I've seen the canyons
I've seen the cities
I've seen the prisons
That take such pity
When it comes to you
When it comes to me
It's just money that will set you free

Chorus:
Hey my children, what seems important
Won't last forever
Hey my children,what seems important
Won't last forever

Take a look at the earth
From a plane
You'll see the earth
Cut up and in pain
Take a look at l.a.
From the sky
What you see
Should make you cry

Chorus

I'm the scum of the earth
I am a cancer
I am humanity

Chorus (x2)back to top
I'm Not the Only One
What if I could say to you
Of what you wanted
Would not do
What if I could say
Say to you
Of what you wanted
Of what you could do
Huh huh huh huh
What you want
Is something you need
And what you've wanted
Is something I bleed
Could you say to me you love me
And I'm the only one
Could you say to me you love me
That I'm your man
Huh huh huh huh

Chorus:
Is this the last time I'll ever see you
Is this the last time I'll ever meet you
Is this the last I'll ever make love to you
You

Yeah, what did you say girl
Im not the only one
What did you say girl
I'm not the only one
Huh huh yeah
What did you say girl

What did you say girl
I'm not the only one
What did you say girl
I'm not the only one
Huh huh huh huhback to top
Miss Blue
Could you stay long enough for me to say goodbye
You can be free as long as you're with me
If you could see the real me you'd bleed
If you could see the real me I'd breathe
Could you still breathe long enough for me
Could you still be long enough for me

Chorus:
When do you think I'll be okay
When do you think I'll be okay

If I should stay when do I pray
If I should stay where do I begin
Do you think I should watch you die
Should we close our eyes and say goodbye

Chorus

Hey you miss blue
You think that I'm well to do
Hey you miss blue
I fell in love with you
Hey you miss blue
I think about you as true
Hey you miss blue
I hate it when you cry
Hey you miss blue
I hate it when you say goodbye
Hey you miss blue
I hate it when you say goodbye

Chorus

You say goodbye
You say goodbye yeah
Don't say goodbye
Say goodbye

Good bye....back to top
