Disconnected
don't like to think too much, it makes me think too much,
it keeps my mid on my mind
don't wanna see too much, it makes me see to much
sometimes I'd rather be blind

all the things that they're saying & doing
when they pass me by it just fills me up with noise
it overloads me
I wanna disconnected myself
pull my brains damn out, unplug myself
I want nothing right now, I want to pull it out

yeah, I want to pull it out, yeah
I wanna break it all down, hey, I wanna pull it out
yeah, yeah, disconnect myself, disconnect myself

a thousand miles an hour going nowhere fast
cluding to the details of your past
talking 'bout your damages and wasting my time
wanna be the king mainstain in line
all the numbers and the colours of the fax
back by the rumours and the figures of the statch
I think I'm gonna download my ind

I wanna pull it out

too damn bad if at the end of the day the only thoughts
in your brain are all the things that they say, what a waste
too damn bad if at the end of the line you got no idea of
what's on your own mind
you got no one to blame but yourself
too much to know, too much to see
if I mean something to you but it's nothing to me

I wanna disconnect myself, pull my brains damn out, unplug myself
I want nothing right now, I want to pull it outback to top
Fool
I should have seen my end coming from a long way off
my friend said. man, she'll give you the blues so man..
don't get caught but I went right ahead and told myself
a pack of lies and spend night after hammered night
getting back my mind

I am a fool when I need you, I'm a fool to believe
my heart is so wide open, I'm so easy to deceive
I'm a fool, I'll keep believing, I'm a fool, I believe it all
I'm a fool who'll keep on trying and like a fool I will crawl

I waste my time in my mind thinking of you
I am a fool I know
I should be healing myself instead of hurting myself
I am a fool I know, I know, I know
and it hurts to keep learning the same, lessons and pain
I am a fool I know
self mutilation is the only thing that I know, I'm a fool I know
I've seen your front teeth sharpen and I've watched
your muscles fles, you have the kind of eyes
that turn mere mortals into wrecks
I know first hand so well, all the hard times you direct
seduced, rejected, reduced, ejected...again...

you can do anything you want
you all tell your city's calling after you

I am a fool, I know, because it's all I know, I am a fool I know
I know, I know, yeah, I am a fool I know, Yeahback to top
Icon
all eyes turned up to the hero, charismatic icon animal man
lyrical visionary caught in the spotlight
the more you make the more you get it right, right?

oh nothing can stop you and no one can bring you down
don't give a thought to tomorrow 'cause you're the man right now

it doesn't matter what you say 'cause they always find
some meaning in it anyway, so you make them feel like
they're a part of some big event
they'll be too busy cheering to wonder where your talent went

oh they really hate you, they got to have you
you're the only 1 who understands

slender Messiah, God with a song, turned out wreck
who stuck 'round too long
targic hero coming down hard
the jokes on you, you got played like a deck of cards

you're paying the priceof the fame
cruch under the wight of the flames X2 yeah (solo)

feel the backlash, watch the tables turn
now you need them, see that fire burn

all eyes turned up to the hero, warned out self-abusive circus freak
that one thing that you might not know. there'll be another Messiah
right here next weekback to top
Civilized
I'm sitting in my roo in your prison doin' time
bars on my windows 'cause you got so good at crime
standing on the corner with nothing in your head
shirt on your back and a gun in your pants
thinking you're the man but you're only a stand in
standing in line to be the next bad guy
I see what you do when you use what you got
but what do you do when you do what you want

you're so civilized, you get brutalized
you're so civilized, man. I watch you get hurt down

getting your mind off some guy's record
he makes his money off fools like you
singing about killing like it ain't no thing but
you do the time when you live it for real
paying his way from your death row cell
you're the last 1 to see, you got sold out
I hear you say you hate pigs so much then
why the hell do you act like 1

I wonder what you're like without the gun
I'd like to see when you're not hiding behind the gun
how you've lived your life without the gun
'cause I know how I lived mine
because you got one, yeah, 'cause that's what it is
you hide behind your gun
you take life, you're just another pig to me
you think you're different but you're just another pig
yeah, a pig, yeah
you gotta have a gun then you're just another pig to me
you think you're different but you're just another pig
you gotta have a gun, you'rea pig to me, just a pig to me
you gotta have a gun, you're just another pig to me
you got a gun, you're just anothe rpig

a gun in your hand makes a fool out of you, oh yeah
a gun in your hand makes a target out of me, oh no
freedom, you ain't no freedom, you want your freedom,
your freedom is killing you man, freedom
you can't handle your freedom, hey
and now you're dying for itback to top
Divine Object Of Hatred
they killed me, they've tied my hands with rope
and now they drag me up the street
a woman is struggling to kick me in my skull,
if she could she would kill me again...
I can see her teeth shine as she
kicks at my dirt covered eyes, so blind
oh mother! they hate me so much,
the hatred's real! and now it's mine...

they sit below me, stare up and scream out threats- at my nakedness
their tongues are hanging from out of their mouths,
I hope they don't tear me
...limb from limb
so much noise, so much hatred, so much violence... they love me!
they'd kill to have me... they'd have to kill me!
Their hatred's pure, I am divine!

when ya kick me?
when ya rape me?
when ya burn me?
when ya break me? I am divine! I am divine!
when ya kick me?
when ya rape me?
when ya burn me?
when ya break me?
I am divine! I am divine! divine! divine! divine!
divine!
I am divine! I am divine! divine! divine!
divine...

show me how ya really are... show me how you really feel...
let me know that ya really care,
let me feel that your hatred is real!

you hate me- I can see that it's real
you do things to me that you never thought ya would!
you hurt me- you'll never know what I feel
what ya bring me, I never thought you could
give me more, make me stronger, high on your poison
I am divine!

when ya kick me?
when ya rape me?
when ya burn me?
when ya break me? I am divine! I am divine!
when ya cut me?

Liar
you think you're going to live your life alone
in darkness and seclusion... yeah, I know
you've been out there and tried to mix with those animals
and it just left you full of humiliated confusion
so you stagger back home and wait for nothing
but the solitary refinement of your
room spits you back onto the streets
and now you're desperate and in need of human contact
and then you meet me and yur whole world changes
because everything I say is everything you've ever wanted to hear
so you drop all you defenses, I'm perfect in every way
'cause I make you feel so strong and so powerfull inside
you feel so lucky
but your ego obscures reality that you never bothered to
wonder why things are going so well
you want to know why?

'cause I'm a liar, yeah, I'm a liar
I'll tear (rip) your mind up, I'll burn your soul
I'll turn you into me, I'll turn you into me
'cause I'm a liar, a liar, a liar, a liar...

I'll hide behind a smile and understanding eyes
and I'll tell you things that you already know so you can say:
I really identify with you, so much
and all the time that you're needing me is just the time
that I'm bleeding you, don't you get it yet?
I'll come to you like an affliction
then I'll leave you like an addiction
you'll never forget me... wou wanna know why?

I don't know why I feel the need to lie and cause you so much pain
maybe it's something inside, maybe it's something I can't explain
'cause all I do is mess you up and lie to you
I'm a liar, ooh, I'm a liar
but if you'll give me another chance
I swear I'll never lie to you again
'cause now I see the destructive power of a lie,
they're stronger than truth
I ca't believe I ever hurt you, I swear I will never lie to you again
please, just give me more chance, I'll never lie to you again, no,
I swear, I will never tell a lie, I will neer tell a lie, no, no
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha! Sucker! Sucker! Sucker!

I am a liar, yeah, I am a liar, yeah, I am a liar
I lie you, I feel good, I am a liar, yeah
I lie X4 ooh, I lie, yeah, I lie
I'm a liar, I lie, I like it, I feel good, I like it, and again
I like it again and I'll keep lying, I'll promiseback to top
Step Back
you're so fuckin' weak, you disgust me! It's a drag when you bring me
down
and all the things that you say, no one cares anyway
but then you've gotta deal with me...

you step back! X2
or you fall down!!

I see through the lies to the bottom of your eyes
your fake charisma pulls you through!
and the house of cards that you built on the cheap shot guilt
doesn't mean a fuckin' thing to me!

you step back! X2
or you fall down!! *solo*

you're pathetic and you're weak, you're a fake and you lie
I'd like to crush you like an insect but I don't wanna do the time
do you really wanna confront me?
do you really wanna deal with me? uh? uh? uh?, no!
I really don't think so!! *solo*

you step back! X2
or you fall down!!

now. what the fuck is going through your tiny little mind?
I'm gonna show ya how fragile you really are... yah.
yeah! I think I'm gonna fuck with you, I think I'm gonna fuck with you
yeah you, yeah you! yeah you, motherfucker! *solo*back to top
Wrong Man
You say we're all the same. You don't even know my name.
Sometime somewhere someone wants hurt you and I'm one of them
So I take all the blame...
You think you know about me...
You don't know a damn thing about me!

I'm not all men X2 I'm just one man
I'm not that man!

Here's one subject that everyone enjoys.
I heard the boys talk the talk to the boys
I heard the girls say the same thing to the girls
Oh man... It's all the same, neither one's worse
Now-a. I didn't always tell the truth... but then again. neither did you!

I'm not all men X2 I'm just one man
I'm not that man!

Get away and leave me well alone,
take your damage and take it on back home
I'm not the blame for your misery, take your threats away from me
Take that damage and leave me all alone!

I won't try to patronize you...
and say. I know everything that you've been through...
You know... it just might be...
You got no problems with me!
I'm not a rapist in waiting, I'm not the one you should be hatin'
Check it out...

I'm not all men X2 I'm just one man
I'm not that man!

You take your fear and you pull it inside... It builds up and the rage
starts to rise...
You push it out and your anger is blind... and you see me as an enemy
That's not the way it oughta be... yeah...

Hey! Yeah!

Ooh... you generalize and tell me lies, like all I want's between your
thighs
All the things that I put you through and all the things that I might do
Don't wonder why I run away when you tell me. it's my time to pay
For all the tears and all the pain, and all those terrible things I never
did
Oh yeah! Ya better look even inside... and check that you're mine...
Take a good look wonderin' what ya lookin' at when ya lookin' at me!
'cuz I'm not that man! I'm not that man! No, no, no, I'm not that man!
No, uh! I'm not that man, I'm not that man. Oh no, I... Check it out...
Uh, I'm not that man! No, I...back to top
Volume 4
I spend time, searching my mind, walking blindly
I'm a live but I don't know why my thoughts threat me
Paranoia, fear and guilt, I hope I don't explode
I'm a bomb that ya can't diffuse,
a gun that ya can't unload..

I don't listen, I don't know, man. I don't care!
You're talking 'bout all the hell you've seen...
Man. I live there!
Talk to me and it goes right through
I never heard a word you said..
Save your breath 'coz it's no use:
You're talking to the living dead!

Ooh..bullet driven eyes...yeah, what can you tell me?
Ooh..I'm living in a nightmare, yeah!
I'm on the edge, shrinking back from the ledge
Looking out my window, down upon my heritage
Strip malls, thin walls, people paralyzed beneath the sun
Why me, why now?
I see the dirty millions and I try to survive somehow...

Got no reasons, got no needs
I hear gunshots, I hear screams
What can you do to me, what can you say?
I used to be alive but I threw it all away
I used to have problems, I used to live a lie
I've seen the sidewalk bleed
And I watched the mother cry
I used to have a mind, I used to wonder why
But now I go from day to day and wait around to die...
...like he did (X4)back to top
Tired
I'm so tired of myself
I'm so tired in my sleep
I'm so tired of my lies
I'm so tired of all the secrets I keep
I'm so tired of looking inside myself
Trying to find something
I'm tired... so tired...
And I know I need something
Because the grind is just burning me out
And I don't wanna have to hurt one of them
But I'll do it 'cause I'm tired...
Real tired...
I'm so tired of all the things that I hear
I'm tired of the things that I fear
I've never seen the end so clear
And I'm tired... real tired
'cause I know I need something...
Something, wanna just this to keep me sticking around
But I'll do it...
'cause I'm getting real tired...
'cause I know I need something...
You want just this...
The grind is wearing me down
And I don't wanna kill one of these walking insects
But I'll do it...
'cause I'm real tired and I'm not getting any betterback to top
Alien Blueprint
you reached out, you got burned,
made tough by the lessons you learned
you never thought they could be so mean,
be so hard and cause you so much pain
like a fool you tried again, you really wanted to be their friend
but looking back you see they just wasted your time (X3)
self loathing, the anger inside, you covered it up with pride,
you always found a way to blame it on yourself,
on yourself, blame it on yourself

looking back you get yourself together...
looking back you get to go on...
looking back you see that you
get to change your mind about yourself and you get to go on...

so mad, so mean, the pain remained unseen
all that time pent up wanting to explode (X3)
what they did, the things the said, you wished that you were dead
anything not to have to deal with them (X3)
they made you hate, you couldn't wait to go out
and do something great
turn around and throw it right back in their face (X4)

looking back you get yourself together
looking back you see all the hatred inside
now you see that you get to change your mind about yourself
and you get to go on, so go on..!
looking back you see you just wasted your time
buying into the talk and the lies
looking back you see all you've got is yourself
you can tell by the look in their eyes

alien man, I'm an alien man, I'm an alien man, I'm an alien man... yeah!

now you see how you are, the wisdom mixed it with all the scars
go on out and watch all the fools passes souls on by
they never knew, they never do, it was always up to you
you gotta go out and get it for yourself (x3)
you never were one of them, they could have never been your friends
the best revenge is to always survive yourself (X bunch of times)back to top
Shine
if I'd listened everything that they said to me, I wouldn't be here!
and if I took the time to bleed from
all the tiny little arrows shot my way,
I wouldn't be here!
the ones who don't do anything are always
the ones who try to put you down
and you could spend your entire life walking around
in the nowhere land of self doubt

'coz when you start to doubt yourself the real world will eat you alive!
it's time, it's time to align your body with your mind, it's hero time
it's time, it's time to align your body with your mind, it's hero time
'coz when you start to doubt yourself the real world will eat you alive!
and you know it's true!
I'm talking to you: hero time starts right now! Yeah, hero time, yeah,
time to shine, hey, hero time!

if ya think you've got 100 years to mess around: you're wrong!
this time it's real, y o u r t i m e i s n o w . . . it's hero time!
Yeah, hero time,hey, time to shine, yeah, hero time, yeah!

hard times are gettin' harder, the liars are acting strong
you better get a grip on yourself or you won't be around too long
it's hero time, hey, time to shine, yeah,
hero time, yeah, hero time, yeah!
it's hero time, it's hero time, time to shine, shine, shine, shine, shine!
oh yeah! (X3)

no such thing as spare time, no such thing as free time
no such thing as down time
all you got is life time... go! 'coz it's hero time, 'coz it's time to
shine
'coz it's time to go, go, go! yeah, hou!

when you're gone, you're so gone (X2)
you've got it now, it's time to go
hero time starts right now! yeah, aha..! ...change it!

I got grace in times of friction, I got truth in times of fiction
I've got no time for the hype... suicide!? I'm not that type...
I got no time for drug addiction, no time for smoke and booze
too strong for a shortened life span, I've got no time to lose!
It's time to shine, yeah, it's hero time, yeah, it's hero time, yeah,
yeah!

when you start to doubt yourself the
real world will eat you alive! yeah!
you could spend your entire walking
around, coward: or you can get up!
get up, get up, get up, get up! it's time to shine! yeah...back to top
