Papercut
Papercut

Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right todaywhy am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed / but
I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
It's like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall
[it watches everything]
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me right underneath my skin
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin
I know I've got a face in me
Points out all my mistakes to me
You've got a face on the inside too and
Your paranoia's probably worse
I don't know what set me off first but I know what I can't stand
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is
I can't add up to what you can but
Everybody has a face that they hold inside
A face that awakes when they close their eyes
A face watches every time they lie
A face that laughs every time they fall
[and watches everything]
So you know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is watching you too
Right inside your skin
The sun goes down
I feel the light betray meback to top
One Step Closer
I cannot take this anymore
I'm saying everything I've said before
All these words they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Less I hear the less you'll say
You'll find that out anyway

Just like before...

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

I find the answers aren't so clear
Wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Nothing seems to go away
Over and over again

Just like before...

Every thing you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break!
I need a little room to breathe
'cause I'm one step closer to the edge,
And I'm about to break!
Every thing you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break!
I need a little room to breathe
'cause I'm one step closer to the edge,
And I'm about to break!

Shut up when I'm talking to you!
Shut up! shut up! shut up!
Shut up when I'm talking to you!
Shut up! shut up! shut up! shut up!
I'm about to break

Every thing you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break!
I need a little room to breathe
'cause I'm one step closer to the edge,
And I'm about to break!

I woke up in a dream today
To the cold of the static , and put my cold feet on the floor
Forgot all about yesterday
Remembering Iím pretending to be where Iím not anymore
A little taste of hypocrisy
And Iím left in the wake of the mistake , slow to react
Even though youíre so close to me
Youíre still so distant , And I canít bring you back

Itís true ,
the way I feel
Was promised by your face
The sound of your voice
Painted on my memories
Even if youíre not with me
Iím with youuuuuu
You , Now I see, keeping everything inside
with You ,
Now I see ,
Even when I close my eyes

I hit you and you hit me back
We fall to the floor , the rest of the day stands still
Fine line between this and that
When things go wrong
I pretend the past isnít real
Now I'm trapped in this memory
And Iím left in the wake of the mistake , slow to react
Even though youíre close to me
Youíre still so distant , And I canít bring you back
no

No matter how far we've come
I can't wait to see tomorrow

no matter how far weave come by
i cant wait to c tommorow
with youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!
you now i see keeping everything inside
with youuuuuuuuuuu!
you ,now i see even when i close my eyes
with youuuuuu
you ,now i see even when i close my eyes

Points Of Authority
Forfeit the game before somebody else, takes you out of the frame, puts your
Name to shame
Cover up your face, you can't run the race, the pace is too fast, you just
Wont last

You love the way I look at you
While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through
You take away if I give in
My life my pride is broken

You like to think you're never wrong
You have to act like you're someone
You want someone to hurt like you
You want to share what you've been through (you live what you learn)

You love the things I say I'll do
The way I'll hurt myself again just to get back at you
You take away when I give in
My life my pride is broken

You like to think you're never wrong
You have to act like you're someone
You want someone to hurt like you
You want to share what you've been through (you live what you learn)back to top
Crawling
Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface,
Consuming, confusing,
This lack of self-control I fear is never ending, controlling,
I can't seem, to find myself again
My walls are closing in
[without a sense of confidence I'm convinced
There's just too much pressure to take]
I've felt this way before
So insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me
Distracting, reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It's haunting how I can't seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
[without a sense of confidence I'm convinced
That there's just too much pressure to take]
I've felt this way before
So insecure...

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

(there's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming,) confusing what is real

(this lack of self control I fear is never ending
Controlling,) confusing what is realback to top
Runaway
Graffiti decorations
Underneath a sky of dust
A constant wave of tension
On top of broken trust
The lessons that you taught me
I learned were never true
Now I find myself in question
[they point the finger at me again]
Guilty by association
[you point the finger at me again]

I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wondering why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind

Paper bags and angry voices
Under a sky of dust
Another wave of tension
Has more than filled me up
All my talk of taking action
These words were never true
Now I find myself in question
[they point the finger at me again]
Guilty by association
[you point the finger at me again]

I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wondering why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind

I gonna run away
And never say goodbye...
I gonna run away
And never wonder why...
I gonna run away
And open up my mind...

I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wondering why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind

I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wondering why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mindback to top
By Myself
What do I do to ignore wats behind me
Do I follow my faith to escape blindly.
Do I hide my mind I away from these bad dreams
And give into sad thoughts that are maddening.
Do I let it go and try to stand it,
Or do I try to catch them red handed.
Do I trust some and give into phoniness,
Or do i, trust none and live life in lonliness.
Sunlight burns the skin of sleepy men,
I make the right turns but I'm lost w/in
I put on my daily full side but then
I just end up gettin hurt again

By myself [myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can't rely on myself

Chorus:
I can't hold on
To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in
If I turn my back I'm defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on
Then they'll take from me 'til everything is gone
If I let them go I'll be outdone
But if I try to catch them I'll be outrun
If I'm killed by the questions like a cancer
Then I'll be buried in the silence of the answer
[by myself]
How do you think I've lost so much
I'm so afraid I'm out of touch
How do you expect I will know what to do
When all I know is what you tell me to
Don't you know
I can't tell you how to make it go
No matter what I do, how hard I try
I can't seem to convince myself why
I'm stuck on the outsideback to top
In The End
It starts with
One thing, I don't know why
It doesn't even mather how hard you try
Keep that in mind
I designed this rhyme
To explain due time
All I know
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down 'till the end of the day
Clock ticks life away
It's so unreal
You didn't look out below,
Watch the time go right out the window
Tryn' to hold on
Didn't even know, I wasted it all
Just to watch you go
I kept everything inside
And even though I tried
It all fell apart
What it's meant to be
Will, eventually be,
A memory of a time,
When I tried so hard and got so far
But in the end, it doesn't even matter...
I had to fall, to loose it all...
But in the end, it doesn't even matter...

One thing, I don't know why
It doesn't even mather how hard you try
Keep that in mind
I designed this rhyme
To remind myself
How I tried so hard...
Dispite the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I'm surprised it got so far
Things aren't the way they were before
You wouldn't even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me
In the end...

You kept everything inside
And even though I tried it all fell apart
What it meant to be, will
Eventually, be a memory of a time
When I tried so hard,
And got so far,
But in the end, it doesn't even matter
I had to fall, to loose it all
But in the end, it doesn't even matter

I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far, as I can go
For all this
There's only one thing you should know

I've put my trust, in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There's only one thing you should know...
I tried so hard,
And got so far,
But in the end, it doesn't even matter
I had to fall, to loose it all,
But in the end, it doesn't even matterback to top
A Place For My Head
I watch how the
Moon sits in the sky in the dark night
Shining with the light from the sun
The sun doesn't give life to the moon to assuming
The moon's going to owe it one
It makes me think of how you act to me
You do
Favors and then rapidly
You just turn around and start asking me about
Things you want back from me
I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
[you'll see it's not meant to be]
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head
Maybe someday I'll be just like you and
Step on people like you do and run away
The people I thought I knew
I remember back then who you were
You used to be calm, used to be strong
Used to be generous but you should've known
That you'd wear out your welcome
Now you see
How quiet it is all alone
I'm so sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest
I'm so sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
You try to take the best of me
Go awayback to top
Forgotten
From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory won't escape me
But why should I care
There's a place so dark you can't see the end
[skies cock back] and shock that which can't defend
The rain then sends dripping an acidic question
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then with the eyes tightly shut looking thought the rust and rot and dust
A spot of light floods the floor
And pours over the rusted world of pretend
The eyes ease open and it's dark again
In the memory you'll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up
Moving all around screaming of the ups and downs
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
The wheels go round and the sunset creeps behind
Street lamps, chain-link and concrete
A little piece of paper with a picture drawn floats
On down the street till the wind is gone
The memory now is like the picture was then
When the paper's crumpled up it can't be perfect again
Now you got me caught in the act
You bring the thought back
I'm telling you that
I see it right through youback to top
Cure For The Itch
(unnamed announcer): folks, we have a very special guest for you tonight.
I'd like to introduce...
Mr. hahn!
Let's hear it for the great mr. hahn!
And now a lesson in rhythm management.
Let's begin...
Alright now, wasn't that fun?
Let's try something else.back to top
Pushing Me Away
I've lied to you
The same way that I always do
This is the last smile
That I'll fake for the sake of being with you

Pre-chorus:
[everything falls apart even the people who never frown eventually break down]
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
[everything has to end you'll soon find we're out of time to watch it all unwind]
The sacrifice is never knowing
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away
I've tried like you
To do everything you wanted too
This is the last time
I'll take the blame for the sake of being with youback to top

High Voltage
I've been diggin in the crates / ever since I was living in space
Before the rat race / before monkeys had human traits
I mastered numerology and big bang theology
Performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology
Invented the mic so could start blessing it
Chin-checking kids to make my point like an impressionist
Many men have tried to shake us
But I twist mic cords into double helixes to show you what I'm made of
Buckle knees like leg braces

Cast a spell of instrumentalness on of any m-c's that hate us
So you can try on / leave you without a shoulder to cry on
From now to infinity / let icons be bygones
I firebomb / ghostly notes haunt this
I tried threats, but moved on to a promise
I stomp shit / with or without an accomplice and
Run the gauntlet with whoever that wants this

(akira) put a kink in the backbones of clones with microphones
And never satisfy my rhyme jonz
Spray in bright day over what you might say
My blood type's krylon / technicolor type a
On highways, write with road rage
Pages of wind in cages of tin that bounce all around
Surround sound / devouring the scene
Subliminal gangrene paintings / over all the same-thing-
Sing-song karaoke bull shit
Break bones verbally with sticks-and-stone tactics
Fourth dimention combat convention
Write rhymes at ease while the track stands at attention
Meant to put you away / with a pencil pistol
Official / sixteen-line / the rhyme missile
While you risk your all / I pick out all your flaws
Spttin raw blah blah blah you can say you saw

Its high voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
Bringin you up and taking you down
Comin at you from every side
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide

Sometimes I feel like a prophet
Misunderstood
Under the gun like a new diseaseback to top
