all Life Of Agony lyrics



This Time
When all is said and done
I'll always be your son
But all is not forgiven
Well I'm on my knees pleading
Just 'cause I'm grown you think I don't need
Much more than what you've ever given me

So when we gonna get together
Seems there's no time for me
You act like you got forever
You've got time, but you ain't got time for me

You said you've got time
But you ain't got time for me

Now that you've gone and tossed
The bottle away now will ya
Start a new life with the new wife
Well she'll never be my mother
I suppose that you know you oughta
Remember the one you left behind

You're just letting it slip away now
You act like things are fine
I know you think you've been born again
But this time
You're leaving your son behind

This time
This time
This timeback to top
Underground
If you don't walk with me, I will walk alone

Hard enough the believe in yourself
When I know they don't believe in me
Unwilling to change for society
I'll be who I want to be

I wanna tear it up, tear it out
Get my aggression out
This is what we're here for, control the dance floor
This is why we're here
I said, this is why we're here

So when will it end, when will it end
When will they comprehend, comprehend
That we will overcome this system
I said this is why we're here

They keep on kicking me down, kicking me down
Tryin' to keep me undergroung, underground
But did I mention we were paving the way
For the new breed of bad seed
We'll never let up until we hear every voice scream
Screamin' these words, screamin' these words
'til every voice is heard, voice is heard
They keep on screamin' these words, screamin' these words
'til every voice is heard...

Calling from the underground

I can feel it in the air I breathe!
I can see we all agree
Unwilling to change for society
We'll be who we wanna be

We are the underground
We are the ungergroundback to top
River Runs Red
I got the razor at my wrist
'cause I can't resist
I've got this fever burnin' fist
That does as I wish
But when I get downtown
And see what's around
I just know there's got to be
A better place to be found

Oh, God help me

The river runs red and I think I'm dyin'

Well I know there'd come a day
When my mind would say "Hey are you afraid"
Well all I know is that I been down here tryin'
Well, I'll bleed on trough the night
I suppose I'll be dead by the morinig light
So don't be suprised if you mind when you find me

The river runs red and I think I'm dyin'
The river runs red and I think I'm dyin'

Oh, God help meback to top
Through and Through
You've got that look in your eye again
It's working overtime
Worried about where I'm gonna spend my life
But it's much too late, it's much too late
Oh it's much to late to start picking fights

You said: where ya been, where ya from
Where ya going to, where you going to, where are you going?
'cause I'll be right here yeah

Can't it wait, can't it wait, can't it wait
Just a minute now, just a minute now, come on

I need some air to breathe
I need some space, just leave
'cause I'm colder than ever (colder than ever)
I said I'm colder than ever
I'm empty, empty through and through

Someday they'll see, someday I'll be
Unwanting of somewhere to hide
But for now, I'll take shelter
Deep in the back of my mind
Can it wait, can't you wait?
'cause I ain't ready to lay it on the line
I still shake, I still shake
From the chill in my spine

I've got this chill yeah
In the back of my spine
Baby all the time now
Chilling my bones, chilling all alone now

Find a way, find a way, I've found a way
to cope with the everyday now
raise your hands if you understand

Smiling's just a phase yeah
And nothing can phase meback to top
Words and Music
Is there something wrong with me?

Ripping through the walls
Tearing at the doors of education
Not that it's my fault
I just can't help but sort
Through the pieces
Secluded from the whore
I focus at the board - I'm out of focus

There must be a way
There's got to be a way to overcome this

It's these words and music
That keeps me living, keeps me breathing

It may not be much
But this is all I got
And I'm smiling
It all seems so pointless
The hours seem so endless
And for what?
I'd rather be working
Breaking my back doing someting

At least I have my brothers, my band and my lover
What more could I need?

I buried my friend the other day
And I saw my life in a different way
It was a cold afternoon for a funeral
I did not shed a tear as I watched the snow fall
Is there something wrong with me?
When did I become this empty?
As I gazed down at his grave
I knew someday I'd end up
This way!back to top
Bad Seed
Am I to blame?

If I won't speak her name, if I won't face her grave
Maybe I'm to blame, maybe I'm to blame
Since you're gone, I've never fealt the same

Well maybe I'm just a bad seed
Of the family
I'll get my sleep without tear-stained sheets
And I'll never come cryin' for sympathy

Well I need a place to run to
Yeah I need a place to hide
Yeah I need a place where I don't need a smile as my disquise


Am I to blame?
If I won't gace your grave
Am I to blame? Am I to blame?
If I cannot bear to face your grave
And mother please shine down on me
Show me that I'm not the bad seed

Maybe I'm to blame, maybe I'm to blame
Since you're gone I never felt the same

Well maybe my mind's deceiving me
But I think you took the easy way out
You left me standing there empty handed
As soon as you put that gun in your mouth
So please don't keep on asking
If theres something wrong
'cause you know damn well if I was fine
I would've never ever written this song

Am I to blame?
If I won't face your graveback to top
My Eyes
A little older, a little wiser
With every breath I learn just a little more
And with all I've seen , I've finally made up my mind
Enough of this world
Enough blood in these eyes
So, so, so sick of this life

It's about time that I realized
Release this hate from inside
Enough blood in my eyes

Call it what you will
Call it suicide
Disregard how you feel
I'm just freeing my mind
Clench my teeth as I sleep
So, so ,so sick of this life
Cannot take, cannot fake
Can't shake this blood from my eyes
So, so, so don't even try

Just give me one good reason to live
I'll give you three to die
Let's leave this world behindback to top
Respect
From day one I could not comprhend
Was it us, was it me, or was it them?
Friends will come and go as it seems
And now I have no shoulder on which to lean
Still I do not understand
You break your back for something
Well where's the fans?

Show me - respect
And I'll
Show me - Show you right back

I see the boys that I once called my friends
They'll fake a smile and then they'll shake your hand
When will this ever end?
I look around at my brothers
My only true friends

You got a lot to learn my friend
You've got a lot to learn about respect!back to top
Method of Groove
We've got the method of groove that grabbed your attention
Now that you're aware we're gonna give you the message
My father taught me many things
Living deaf, dumb, & blind will get you nothing
So listen up and hear what I have to say
It's never too late to learn in this day and age
We'll point you in a new direction
Passed down to this generation

If you've hread anything from me
It would be to hold on to your dreams
Learn from my mistakes
And it will take off some weight
He said "You got your whole life to live,
And so much more to give,
Never compromise and you will never live a lie"
He said "Son, remember where you came from"

We never doubted ourselves for a minute
Ah they may criticize and compromise, but we were always in it

So come on down and see what this is all about
It's in our soul, on the road, wherever we may go
So wake up, nothing can stop us,
We got the chaos so just let us
Provide the lines that make your mind spend the time
Think before you sink to the bottom

He said "Son, remember where you came from"back to top
The Stain Remains
Was it me? Honestly
Torn away from my purity
Never look back and don't look ahead
At those lies that might be empty promises
It's the blood in your tears
The pain in your veins
The lies, the cries, only the
Only the stain remains

Everyday - I live it
Everyday - I face it
Everyday - I hate it
All I need is me and that's it

I whish I could back the hands of time
And maybe I would believe in a dream I cannot even see
Close your ears if you don't want to hear
Let me make myself perfectly clear
I don't believe your dream even exists
Save your prayers and solve your problems with your fist

Sometime I don't see any point in life
Can't seem to break away
From the pain that's here to stay

All I need, set me free
All I need, set me free
All I need, set me free
All I need... is me!back to top
