All the Love in the World
Watching all the insects march along
Seem to know right where they belong
Smears of face reflecting in the chrome
Hiding in the crowd i'm all alone

Noone's heard a single word I've said
They don't sound as good outside my head
It looks as if the past is here to stay
I've become a million miles a--

Why do you get all the love in the world? [x2]

All the jagged edges dissapear
Colors all look brighter when you're near
The stars are all a fire in the sky
Sometimes I get soo lonely I could--

Why do you get all the love in the worldback to top
You Know What You Are?
I tried to stick myself through try to get to the other side
I had to patch up the cracks and the holes that i had to hide
For a little bit of time even made it work (ok)
Just long enough to really make it hurt
When you figured me out and it all just rotted away

[Chorus]
Don't you fucking know what you are? [x3]
Com'on get back to where you belong!

You better take a good look 'cause I'm full of shit
With every bit of my heart I've tried to believe
You can dress it up, you can try to pretend
But you can't change anything in the end

[Chorus]

Remember where you came from, remember what you are

[Chorus]back to top
The Collector
I pick things up
I am a collector
And things-well-things which tend to work your mind
I have this net
It drags behind me
It picks up things
For me to feed upon

There are times - plenty of times
I wish I could let it go
They start to breed, and they start to grow inside of me
There are times - plenty of times
I wish I could let it go
But they start to make me think things I don't wanna know

[Chorus]
I'm trying to fit it all inside
I'm trying to open my mouth wide
I'm trying not to choke
And swallow it all, swallow it all, swallow it all

I am the plaque I am the swarm
All your heart sticks on me
And I keep it warm
They won't let me stay they won't let me leave
They are soo many of them it gets hard to breath

[Chorus]

Every last one every last one every last on every last one [repeat to fade out]back to top
The Hand That Feeds
You're keeping in step
In the line
Got your chin held high and you feel just fine
Because you do
What you're told
But inside your heart it is black and it's hollow and it's cold

Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you want to change it?

What if this whole crusade's
A charade
And behind it all there's a price to be paid
For the blood
On which we dine
Justified in the name of the holy and the divine

Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you want to change it?

So naive
I keep holding on to what I want to believe
I can see
But I keep holding on and on and on and on

Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees? [8X]back to top
Love Is Not Enough
The more that we take
The paler we get
I can't remember what it is
We try to forget
The towel on the floor
Soo cold it could sting
In your eyes there's a place
Warm with remembering

For you to go and take this and smash it apart
I've gone all this fucking way
To wind up back at-I'm back at the start

[Chorus]
The closer we think we are
Well it only got us soo far
Have you got anything left to show?
No no I didn't think so
The sooner we realize
We cover ourselfs with lies
But underneath we're not soo tough
Love is not enough

Well it hides in the dark
Like the withered vien
We didn't give it a mouth
So it cannot complain
We never really had a chance
We'd never really make it through
I never think'd I'd believed
I believed I could get better with you!

[Chorus]back to top
Every Day Is Exactly the Same
I believe I can see the future
As I repeat the same routine
I think I used to have a purpose
But then again
That might have been a dream
I think I used to have a voice
Now i never make a sound
I just do what I've been told
I really don't want them to come around again

Oh, no

[Chorus]
Everyday is exactly the same
Everyday is exactly the same
There is no love here and there is no pain
Everyday is exactly the same

I can feel thier eyes are watching
In case I loose myself again
Sometimes I think I'm happy here
Sometimes, yet I still pretend
I can't remember how this got started
But I can tell you exactly how it will end

[Chorus]

I'm writing on a little piece of paper
I'm hoping someday you might find
I'll hide it behind something
They won't look behind
I am still inside here
A little bit comes bleeding through
I wish this could have been any other way
But I just don't know- I don't know what else I can do!

[Chorus]back to top
With Teeth
She comes along
She gets inside
She makes you better than anything you've tried
It's in her kiss
As black as sea
And it runs deeper than you
Ever dared dream it could be

[Chorus]
With the teeth [x4]

A wave goodbye
To what you were
The rules have changed
The lines begin to blur
She makes you hard
It comes on strong
You've find the place where you belong

[Chorus]

I cannot go through this again [x4]

[Chorus]

She will not let you go
Keeps holding on
She will not let you go
Keeps holding on
This time, I'm not coming back
She will not let you go
This time, I'm not coming back
She will not let you goback to top
Only
I'm becoming less to find as days go by
Fading away
Well you might say
I'm loosing focus
Kind adrifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself

Sometimes I think I can see right through myself [x3]

Less concerned about fitting into the world
Your world that is
Because it doesn't really matter
(no it doesn't really matter anymore)
None of this really matters anymore

Yes I'm alone but then again I always was
As far back as I can tell
I think maybe it's because you never were really real to begin with
I just made you up to hurt myself [x6]
And it worked.
Yes it did!

[Chorus]
There is no you
There is only me
There is no you
There is only me
There is no fucking you
There is only me
There is no fucking you
There is only me

Only [x3]

The tiniest little dot caught my eye and it turned out to be scab and I had this funny feeling
Like I just knew it was something bad
I just couldn't leave it alone, picking at that scab
Was a doorway trying to seal itself shut
But I climbed through

Now I am somehwere I am not supposed to be, and I can see things I knew I really Shouldn't see
And now I know why (yea now I know why)
Things aren't as pretty
On the inside

[Chorus]back to top
Getting Smaller
Getting a little bit irradic here
And I don't know who to trust
I guess it got away (you're reading my mind)
I guess I've got to adjust
I've got my arms a-flip-flop-flip-flop-flip
I got my head on spring
And I thought I got you on my side
I havn't got fuckin anything

[Chorus]
I'm just a face in the crowd
Nothing to worry about
Not even trying to stand out
I'm getting smaller and smaller and smaller and
I got nothing to say
Its all been taken away
I just behave and obey
I'm afriad im starting to fade away

I can hardly see through the cracks (when i press up on the wall)
I'm not looking to stand up real high (id be happy to crawl)
I think I'm loosing my grip (but i can still make a fist)
You know I've still got my one good arm and i can beat-i can beat myself up with it!

[Chorus]

And for what it was worth
I really used to believe
That maybe there was one great thing
We could achieve
Now I can't tell the difference between what I've been trying soo hard to see, and what appears to
Be real

Fading away [x4]
My world is getting smaller everyday (and thats ok) [repeat fade out]back to top
Sunspots
Sunspots cast a glare in my eyes
Sometimes I forget I'm alive
I feel it coming and I've gotta get out of its way
I hear it calling and I come 'cause I can't disobey
I should not listen and I shouldn't believe
But I do
Yes I do

[Chorus]
She turns me on
She makes me real
I have to apologize
For the way I feel

My life, it seems has taken a turn
Why in the name of god would I ever want to return
Peel off our skin we're gonna burn what we were to the ground
Fuck in the fire and we'll spread the ashes around
I wanna kill away the rest of what's left and I do
Yes I do

[Chorus]
And nothing can stop me now
There is nothing to fear
And everything I'd ever want
Is inside a tear

Now I just stare into the sun
And I see everything I've done
I think I could've been someone
But I can't stop what has begun
When everything is said and done
And there is no place left to run
I think I used to be someone
Now I just stare into the sunback to top
The Line Begins to Blur
There are things I said I would never do
There are fears I can not believe have come true
For my soul is too sick and it's too little and too late
And myself I have grown to weary to hate

The more I stay in here
The more it's not so clear
The more I stay in here
The more I disappear

As far as I have gone
I knew what side I'm on
But now I'm not so sure
The line begins to blur

There's somebody on top of me
I don't know I don't know
Is anyone stopping me?
I don't know I don't know
I won't try and hold my breath
I don't know I don't know
Just how far can I go
I don't know I don't know

As I lay here
The fabric starts to tear
It's far beyond repair
And I don't really care

As far as I have gone
I knew what side I'm on
But now I'm not so sure
The line begins to blurback to top
Beside You in Time
I am all alone this time around
Sometimes on the side I hear a sound
Places parallel I know it's you
Feel the little pieces bleeding through
And on

[Chorus]
This goes on
And on
And on
And on
And on
And on
And on
This goes on
And on
And on
And on
And on
And on
And on
And on

Now I've decided not to stay
I can feel me start to fade away
Everything is back where it belongs
I will be beside you before long

[Chorus]

Ohhhh we will never die
Beside you in time
Ohhhh we will never die
Beside you in timeback to top
Right Where It Belongs
See the animal in it's cage that you built
Are you sure what side you're on
Better not look him too closely in the eye
Are you sure what side of the glass you are on
See the safety of the life you have built
Everything where it belongs
Feel the hollowness inside of your heart
And it's all
Right where it belongs

[Chorus:]
What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems
What if all the world you think you know
Is an elaborate dream
And if you look at your reflection
Is it all you wanted to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks
Would you find yourself
Find yourself afriad to see?

What if all the world's inside of your heart
Just creations of your own
Your devils and your gods
All the living and the dead
And you really are alone
You can live in this illusion
You can choose to believe
You keep looking but you can't find the words
Are you hiding in the dreams?

[Chorus:]
What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems
What if all the world you used to know
Is an elaborate dream
And if you look at your reflection
Is it all you wanted to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks
Would you find yourself
Find yourself afriad to see?back to top
