Burned Beyond Recognition
I like you, but I don't like you
I want you, but I don't want you
I need you, but I don't need you
I am one time, I am right now, I am what's left, I am right now
I touched you, but I don't touch you
I feel you, but I don't feel you
I know you, but I don't know you
I am one time, I am right here, I am what's keft, I am right here
I remain burned beyond recognition
I remain burned beyond recognition
I like you, but you don't like me
I want you, but you don't want me
I need you, but you don't need me
I am one time, I am right here, I am what's left, I am right now
You touch me, but you don't touch me
You feel me, but you don't feel me
You know me, but you don't know me
I am one time, I am right here, I am what's left, I am right now
I remain burned beyond recognition
I remain burned beyond recognition
I remain burned beyond recognition
I remain burned beyond recognitionback to top
What Am I Doing Here?
Walkin' alone down Sunset Boulevard
Feelin' lonely, feelin' mean, feelin' hard
Passing cars movin soft to scar my mind
Hot night street light pressin down burning my eyes

What am I doing here?
What am I doing here?
What am I doing here?
What am I doing here?

Climb the stairs back to my hollow room
Locked up, thrown away, fallin' down, sudden tomb
Voices outside screamin'
Not sayin' a word to me
Voices inside screamin' at a man - Don't you always hear it from me?

What am I doing here?
What am I doing here?
What am I doing here?
What am I doing here?
What am I doing here?

Turn around quick see if I can see my eyes
I see the face in the mirror starin' back don't recognize
Lookin' at my hands only nothin' hangin' on
Feelin' non-existent, stuck here feelin' gone

What am I doing here?
What am I doing here?
What am I doing here?
What am I doing here?back to top
1000 Times Blind
1000 times blind, see me fallin' see me hit the floor
1000 times blind, see me fallin' see me lose my mind

Don't touch me you'll touch yourself
Don't find me you'll lose yourself
Don't love me you'll hate yourself
Don't hold me you'll drop yourself
Yeah!

1000 times blind, see me throw myself to the floor
1000 faces lookin' back at you
1000 times blind
I reach inside I can't feel myself
I open my eyes I can't see myself
I scream out loud I can't hear myself
I try to recognize I don't know myself
Yeah!
1000 times blind, I get cutoff from myself
Smashed up, cut up, 1000 pieces
1000 times blind...back to top
Lonely
I hate the world that I think hates me
Pnch holes in the wall you know that hurts me
Feel dark and cold alone it burns me
Wish someone would come and touch me
Walkin' alone in the prison yard
Seein' eyes that seem to see me so hard
Crawlin' like a snake right back in to my room
Feelin' like a dead man rolling around in my tomb
There's nothin' like findin' someone when you're lonely
Makes you wanna feel so all alone
There's nothin like finding someone when you're lonely
Makes you feel so...
Walk in to a crowded room I start to freeze
Words fall short now turns to what it's time to leave
Never happy, never sad, I can face
Can't stop lookin' I keep walkin' from place to place
There's nothin like finding someone when you're lonely
Makes you wanna be so all alone
There's nothin' like finding someone when you're lonely
Makes you feel so...
Aww, yeah!
Hear no sounds they seem to keep me sane
Knife in eyes and point me at my prey
Reachin' out of my soul it's senseless
Reachin' out of my mind it's useless
I feel the mute frustration when I see your eyes
Mute is a way but Isolation iyt hurts to try
I reach out my hand - it turns to stone
I get up, walk out the door, I'm better off aloneback to top
Wreckage
I take a look around me and it makes me mad
Another friend of mine in rehab
Try to pull himself from a plastic bag
He's callin' from the Halfway House he says he's doing fine
Says he got himself out just in time
Says his friends woulda let him turn blue and die

Someday becomes yesterday
Your life goes and crawls away
You gotta take it on the Black Train, Jack
You can't even feel the fire burnin' your back

Her boyfriend left her broken and alone
She took some pills and crawled to the death zone
Her mother found her just in time
She strapped to a bed in psych ward doin' fine
Aww girl, what happened, what happened, what happened to you
What's goin' on? What's goin' on?

Someday becomes yesterday
Your life goes and crawls away
You're walkin' hand in hand with a death trip
You can't even feel the power in it's grip

Sometimes I wanna take you by your shoulders and shake you
You've got to open your eyes, man, how long will it take you
Runnin' through life blind, man, what a waste
Shot down and neutralized, man, what a case
What happened, what happened to you?
What's goin on? What's going on with you?

Someday becomes yesterday
Your life goes an crawls away
You've got to take it on the Black Train, Jack
You can't even feel the fire on your back

I don't wanna die in the wreckage
Don't wanna go blind in the wreckage
Don't wanna go down in the wreckage
Don't wanna get stuck in the wreckage
Sometimes it's all I can see
The wreckage is all around me
The human wreckage, the human wreckage
To you, I say goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, bye-bye, bye-byeback to top
Gun In Mouth Blues
Hard times, got hard times, hard times
Got blues, got blues, you got, you got, got, got, got, got, got, got, got
Yeah! Blues!
You got "My boss, man, is a bastard and I wanna kill him" blues.
You got "My boyfriend's a motherfucker
and I wanna cut his balls off and shove 'em right down his throat" blues.
Can't take it, can't take it no more, can't take it, can't take it no more
Blues!
I got gun in my mouth blues
I got gun-in-my-mouth blues.
Lookin' out my window, sun comes up, sun comes burnin' down
No answer, no answer, no aswer, no answer, no answer, no answer, no answer
I'm alone in my room, but I'm not by myself
I'm alone in my room, but I'm not by myself
I've got my hands wrapped 'round my gun
I've got my hands wrapped 'round my gun
No answer, no answer, no answer, no answer, no answer, no answer, no answer
Can't touch me, can't touch me, can't touch me, can't touch me, can't touch me
Suck in.
Pull it, pull it, pull it, pull it.back to top
You Look At You
Killin' myself again
Losin' to myself again
Livin' in a dream again
Livin' on a lie again

I've got do something and I've got to do it now
I've gotta get to somethin' but I know I don't know how
Always keepin' busy takin' other people's change
I know I'm not afraid to push it but I'm too afraid to ask it
Back to myself again
Forget my name again
Hate my guts again
Parted my friends again
You look at you
You look at you

Lookin' toward myself and all the people that I see
Wonder what they're seein' when they're lookin' back at me
I tell you that I hate you but you know that's just a lie
You know that I don't mean it I'm the one that I despise

Losin' my grip again
Start to slip again
Stand in line again
Look at my mind again
You look at you
You look at you

Can you deal with it
Can you deal with it, deal with it, deal with it, deal with it, deal with itback to top
If You're Alive
I need you here
I need you here
I'm dyin' I'm burnin' I'm warnin' I'm bleedin'
I'm dyin' I'm breathin' it's you that I'm needin'
I need, I need, I need, I need

If you're alive, you know what I mean, if you're alive
If you're alive, you know what I mean, if you're alive

I need your strength
I need your strengthback to top
Turned Out
Your eyes they wanna cry for me
Don't make me wanna die for you
Your arms that wanna wrap around me
Don't make me wanna hang around you
And it's no wonder anymore
That I don't wonder anymore
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

I've been turned out
I've been turned out
I've been turned out
I've been turned out

I've been turned out
I've been turned out
You tell me you're my friend
You say I know you
I'll trust you just as far
As I can throw you
Now I don't know you
I know my enemies
They show themselves to me with honest eyes
They hate my guts but at least it's the truth
I'll trust them just as far as I can throw them off a roof
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I've been turned out
I've been turned out
I've been turned out
I've been turned out

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm no stranger to kindness
I never missed the fist that kissed my face
I'm no stranger to cheapness
I never came to love the push and shove
Steel, glass-eyes cities crack dirty smiles when they see me
Open their filthy arms to greet me
I don't know if they wanna kiss or kill me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I've been turned out
I've been turned out
I've been turned out
I've been turned out

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, Oh yeah, Oh yeah, Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

right, yeah, that's right, yeah, that's right, that's right, yeah, thats's
