Sanctified
it's still getting worse after everything i tried.
what if i found a way to wash it all aside.
what if she touches with those fingertips.
as the words spill out like fire from her lips.

Chorus: if she says come inside i'll come inside for her.
if she says give it all i'll give everything to her.
i am justified.
i am purified.
i am sanctified.
inside you

Heaven's just a rumor she'll dispel.
as she walks me through the nicest parts of hell.
i still dream of lips i never should have never kissed.
well she knows exactly what i can't resist

Chorus

i think we should get in the front right now,
get in the front right now!
doesn't that feel good?
now you're ready to go, get it.
now i want you to get in there and get the job done.
life is great!
life is terrific!
thank you God for another wonderful day!

i'm still caught up in another of her spells.
well she's turning me into someone else.
everyday i hope and pray this will end.
but when i can i do it all again

and if she says come inside i'll come inside for her.
if she says give it all i'll give everything to her.
i am justified.
i am purified.
i am sanctified.
inside you
i am purified.
i am terrified.
i am sanctified.
inside you

even when it's bowling shapes and see your life begin to change.back to top
Maybe just once
i can't believe that what i feel is really happening to me.
make it hurt.
and point the finger at my insecurities.
well i guess i just don't understand about those complexities in your mind.
and i guess i just don't understand why this world seems so unkind.

Chorus: maybe. maybe just once. i get what's coming.
maybe. maybe just once. i get what's coming to me.

so once again the way you feel will never ever stay the same.
and i'm to blame.
i wonder just who made the rules up for this game.
well i guess i just don't understand about what you want and what you need.
and i guess i just don't understand about how it has to be.

Chorus

you sat down on this bed and you said
"Christ, what the hell do you think this place is?"
you know.
he just couldn't believe it!
and i said
"i don't know but it sure is something different"

so go ahead.
you say those thousand things you think you have to say.
look at me.
and tell me love's not such a hard word anyway.
well how can you count on me i thought you realized for sure.
and how can you just believe.
i thought i deserved just a little more.

Chorus

oh God.
oh what's coming to me.back to top
The only time
i'm drunk.
and right now i'm so in love with you.
and i don't want to think too much about what we should or shouldn't do.
lay my hands on Heaven and the sun and the moon and the stars.
while the devil wants to fuck me in the back of his car.

Chorus: nothing quite like the feel of something new.
maybe i'm all messed up.
maybe i'm all messed up.
maybe i'm all messed up in you.
maybe i'm all messed up.
maybe i'm all messed up.
maybe i'm all messed up.
maybe i'm all messed up in you.
maybe i'm all messed up.
this is the only time i really feel alive.
this is the only time i really feel alive.

i swear.
i just found everything i need.
the sweat in your eyes the blood in your veins are listening to me.
well i want to wrap it up and swim in it until i drown.
my moral standing is lying down.

Chorusback to top
Kinda i want to
i can't shake this feeling from my head.
there's a devil sleeping in my bed.
watching you from across the way.
i cannot make this feeling go away

Chorus: i know it's not the right thing.
and I know it's not the good think.
but kinda i want to.

i'm not sure of what i should do.
when every thought i'm thinking of is you.
all of my excuses turn to lies.
maybe God will cover up his eyes

Chorus

why does it have to be this way?
why does it have to be?
why does have to be this way?

kinda i want to.
maybe just for tonight.
we can pretend it's alright.
what's the price i pay.
i don't care what they say.
i want to.
i want to (i'll take my chance tonight)back to top
That's what I get
just when everything was making sense.
you took away all my self-confidence.
now all that i've been hearing must be true.
i guess i'm not the only boy for you.

Chorus: but that's what i get
that's what i get
that's what i get
that's what i get

how could you turn us into this?
after you just taught me how to kiss you.
i told you i'd never say goodbye.
i'm slipping on the tears you made me cry.

but that's what i get.
that's what i get.
that's what i get.
that's what i get.
for trusting you.
that's what i get.

why does it come as a surprise.
to think that i was so naive.
maybe didn't mean too much.
but it meant everything to me.

Chorusback to top
Purest feeling
purest feeling.
purest feeling.
well i think i'm gonna push it as far as it will go.
give in to desire.
only you will know.
so tell me all your secrets.
i'll stick it in your head.
i wish i could remember everything she said.

purest feeling.
purest feeling.
purest feeling.
purest feeling.
well she can be my savior with everything she does.
or some kind of punishment for people just like us.
i don't really believe she understands what's happening to me.
the sooner that she gets it the better it will be.

purest feeling.
purest feeling.
purest feeling.
purest feeling.
purest feeling.
i have got it figured out. (i should have known all along).
i can't live without her.
purest feeling.
i have got it figured out.back to top
Ringfinger (Also known as Twist)
well you've got me working so hard lately.
working my hands until they bleed.
if i was twice the man i could be.
i'd still be half of what you need
still you lead me and i follow
all of your back up to your chin.
over to the tip of your switchblade as you pull it out and stick it in.

Chorus: (Twist,Twist,Twist) we can go a little deeper.
(Twist,Twist,Twist) i'm wearing these chains.
(Twist,Twist,Twist) you make it hurt real good.
(Twist,Twist,Twist) i love the pain.

well you just leave me nailed here.
hanging like Jesus on the cross.
i'm just dying for your sins.
and aiding to the cause.

Chorus

wrap my soul in bandages.
i'm tired of this war.
go ahead and cut me.
i can't even feel it anymore.

Chorusback to top
Down in it
wimp. wimp.

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.
that dot was pulling me down.

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

shut up.
so what what does it matter now.
i was swimming in the hate now i crawl on the ground.
and everything i never liked about you is kind of seeping into me.
i try to laugh about it now but isn't it funny how everything works out.
i guess the jokes on me.

Chorus

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 it's open wide.
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."

Chorus

rain rain go away.
come again some other day.

Chorus

na na na na na na na na.back to top
