Head Like A Hole (Slate)
bow down before the one you serve.
you're going to get what you deserve.
bow down before the one you serve.
you're going to get what you deserve.

god money i'll do anything for you.
god money just tell me what you want me to.
god money nail me up against the wall.
god money don't want everything he wants it all.

no you can't take it
no you can't take it
no you can't take that away from me
no you can't take it
no you can't take it
no you can't take that away from me

head like a hole.
black as your soul.
i'd rather die than give you control.
head like a hole.
black as your soul.
i'd rather die than give you control.

bow down before the one you serve.
you're going to get what you deserve.
bow down before the one you serve.
you're going to get what you deserve.

god money's not looking for the cure.
god money's not concerned with the sick among the pure.
god money let's go dancing on the backs of the bruised.
god money's not one to choose
no you can't take it
no you can't take it
no you can't take that away from me
no you can't take it
no you can't take it
no you can't take that away from me

head like a hole.

you're going to get what you deserve.
bow down before the one you serve.

head like a hole.
black as your soul.
i'd rather die than give you control.
head like a hole.
black as your soul.
i'd rather die than give you control.

bow down before the one you serve.
you're going to get what you deserve.
bow down before the one you serve.
you're going to get what you deserve.
.
you know who you are.

Terrible Lie (Sympathetic Mix)
hey God, why are you doing this to me?
am i not living up to what i'm supposed to be?
why am i seething with this animosity?
hey God, i think you owe me a great big apology

terrible lie

hey God, i really don't know what you mean.
seems like salvation comes only in our dreams.
i feel my hatred grow all the more extreme.
hey God, can this world really be as sad as it seems

i need someone to hold on to.
don't take it away from me.

hey God, there's nothing left for me to hide.
i lost my ignorance, security and pride.
i'm all alone in a world you must despise.
hey God, i believed that promises, your promises and lies

terrible lie

terrible lie

you made me throw it all away.
my morals left to decay.
how many you betray.
you've taken everything
terrible lie

my head is filled with disease.
my skin is begging you please.
i'm on my hands and knees
i want so much to believe.

don't take it away from me.
i need someone to hold on to

i give you everything.

Down In It (Shred)
kinda like a cloud i was up way up in the sky and i was feeling some feelings
you wouldn't believe sometimes i don't believe them myself and i decided i was
never coming down. just then a tiny little dot caught my eye it was just about
too small to see. but i watched it way too long and that dot was pulling me
down.

i was up above it.
i was up above it.
now i'm down in it
i was up above it.
i was up above it.
now i'm down in it

well shut up so what what does it matter now. i was swimming in the haze now i
crawl on the ground. and everything i never liked about you is kind of seeping
into me. try to laugh about it now but isn't it funny how everything works
out ("I guess the jokes on me." she said)
i was up above it.
i was up above it.
now i'm down in it
i was up above it.
i was up above it.
now i'm down in it

i used to be so big and strong.
i used to know my right from wrong.
i used to never be afraid.
i used to be somebody

i used to have something inside
now just this hole that's open wide.
i used to want it all
i used to be somebody

i'll cross my heart and hope to die but the needle's already in my eye. and
all the world's weight is on my back and i don't even know why. and what i
used to think was me is just a fading memory
i looked him right in the eye and said "goodbye."

i was up above it.
i was up above it.
now i'm down in it
i was up above it.
i was up above it.
now i'm down in it
