all Sick Of It All lyrics



Relentless
So resented, so disliked
So involved in all the wrong fights
Overbearing influence
Not endearing to any one

wealth and power crashing through
wealth empowers its own views
wealth and power crashing in
on the warpath once again

So resented, so disliked
So involved in all the wrong fights
Domination won't win friends
Just gives rise to hostile trends

It feels good to see freedom excepted
But by free thought, not a gun to the head
It feels good to see freedom embraced
But by strong folk, not a puppets feeble imitation

Relentless [4x]

Wealth and power crashing through
Wealth impoeses its own views
Wealth and power crashing in
On the warpath, unrelentingback to top
All My Blessings
No matter what, I see what's real
Every imperfection is crystal clear
No matter what, I can't help but give a fuck
I can't be free and easy
I just don't work like that
I'm not like that

look into my eyes, it burns inside
when I view the world I see the lies
sometimes it can leave me hurt
the overly critical part takes over

No matter what, I see what's real
Every imperfection is crystal clear
No matter what, I can't help but give a fuck
I can't be free and easy
I just don't work like that
Like that, like that, not free and easy

Dumb me down so I can be happy
Dumb me down so I can be numb
Dumb me down 'cause I pick apart all my blessingsback to top
The Land Increases
One is born, one dies
We're fragile and soft
Our surroundings are harsh
Our surrondings are hostile
The world takes what it wants

Nobody's secure
Nobody is safe
Don't take it for granted
To see another day

Murder, accident, suicide, and disease

We're lucky to be here
We're lucky to live
So much is trivial
Beyond that idea

Murder, accident, suicide, and disease

The soul is sacred
It defines our being
And without the body
The force is freed
Leaving only a shell

The land increasesback to top
Paper Tiger (Fakin' the Punk)
Once there was a purpose, once there was a voice
Its gotten so deluded, robbed of its claws
Picked, stripped, bones clean
Left the heart, took what you need
Waterd down, now it's just a parody

Once there was a reason, once there was a soulo
Now just a paper tiger, roaring at the mall
Picked, stripped, bones clean
You've got the look, you've got the style
Left the substance, in a year where will you be

Somebody's fakin' it
Somebody's fakin' it
Somebody's fakin' it
Somebody's fake

Call you out, its not a comodity
Call you out, without integrity
Call you out, or an ego driven game
Call you out, let you in with open arms and open mind
You had a taste
You turn around, spit it out
And slap it right in the face

Somebody's fakin' it
Look at them they're fakin' it
Fakin' the punkback to top
The Innocent
No more, no more
The cries of the ones you
Serve go unheard, ignored
With patronizing smiles you move on, and on
An agenda all your own
While the pain and scorn
Are yours and yours alone to stop

It's been said all before
But you choose to ignore
And the ones that you burn
Will be the ones to see you fall

You test the innocent and watch them bleed
You test the innocent, we'll watch you bleed

What's right, what's just
The lines of right and wrong have been
Blurred and crossed
So many times the ideals are lost
Your voices numb our minds
And those who oppose are cast
Into a light of doubt

There's only so much they'll take
Before your grip starts to break
As the cracks start to show
It falls apart and explodes

What's there left to say
As all hope fades away
Our cries fall on deaf ears
With no hope, no fear

Warned you a thousand times
You just ignored
And now the faceless ones
Will see you fall

You test the innocent and watch them bleed
You test the innocent, we'll watch you bleedback to top
Silence
So I take that you thought
Some things are better left unsaid
You chose your inhibitions
Over what I should comprehend
What could have been done
To keep me from going astray
Begging for direction
But not pointed out the way

Silence, silence doesn't teach
Silence, silence doesn't lead
Silence, where did I end up
In a self-destructive rut

Do I think I'm stronger because I learned my own way
I just think I'm lucky to have made it out unscathed
Now I'm thinking I resent the counsel that I lacked
All the words I didn't hear could have saved my past

Silence, silence doesn't teach
Silence, silence doesn't lead
Silence, where did I end up
In a self-destructive rut

Silence is deafening
You don't say
Silence is deafening

The corrupt light shines
The corrupt light blinds
Time to shrink, time to hide
Time to guard what's inside

The street didn't gently take me under their wing
The street is so dirty and I feel unclean
Silence is deafening when guidance is sought
Silence is deafening, and now I'm hauntedback to top
For Now
For now we'll try to keep, keep our P.M.A.
For now we'll try to keep living our own way
The man can't tell us how, tell us how to live
It's not his place and we're not his fucking slaves

Treat me badly, treat me wrong
Test me for the millionth time
I won't change my attitude
I'll improve by not being like you

Treat me kindly, treat me well
Lift me briefly from the hell
Just remind me why there's hope
For any of us at all

Nothing's easy from where we stand
It's a long hard road to the promised land
And there's no reason to think
That we'll ever get there

Is it hope or a lack of sense
It's the fighting spirit of the human race
That keeps us trying in spite of ourselves

We think that we look above
For salvation on this earth
But we look to books of man
Created by no others hand

Why would this give us the right
To be so sure we've seen the light
Let's be modest, let's be true
We're the only hope we've got

Nothing's easy from where we stand
It's a long hard road to the promised land
And there's no reason to think
That we'll ever get there

Is it hope or a lack of sense
It's the fighting spirit of the human race
That keeps us trying in spite of ourselves

For now we'll try to keep, keep our P.M.A.
For now we'll try to keep living our own way
The man can't tell us how, tell us how to live
It's not his place and we're not his fucking slavesback to top
View from the Surface
Floating, but gasping for a breath
Paying through the nose for every bit of air
Strapped and bleak
Where's the feast in feast or famine

Strapped and bleak
Who stole the peak
From the valley

When's it coming next
When's the next respite
The next deep breath

Strapped and bleak
Where's the feast in feast or famine
Where'd it go

There's not a lot to go around
There's just the hope for next time
Yeah right

So here's the ration, make it last
Don't be surprised if it disappears fast
Too fast

It's the view from the surface
Not above and not below

It's great not to worry
It's great to fake it for another day
It's great not to worry
But that would mean breathing
Easy once again, again

Don't count on it again
Or on anything

Strapped and bleak
Where's the feast in feast or famine

Strapped and bleak
Who stole the peak
Where'd it goback to top
Going All Out
Right now, I don't care how shame feels
Don't care how pain feels inside
Right now, don't care what I hear
Don't care what I fear inside

So now I'm going it alone
It feels like me against the world
I can't allow for an ounce of inability
I may be tetched, but for now I'm going all out

Right now, I don't care how shame feels
Don't care how pain feels inside
Right now, don't care what I hear
Don't care what I fear inside

I can't make room for comfort
I can't make room for myself

I'll keep my cool, defiantly
My strategy is not too sound
But I'm going all out

If there's a barrier up
I'm pushing through it
A door slammed in my face
I'm kicking through it

I will silence the doubts
Even if it fucks me up right now
I'm tetched, but I'm going all out
I'm pushing my limits

Right now, I don't care how shame feels
Don't care how pain feels inside
Right now, don't care what I hear
Don't care what I fear inside

Right now, I don't care how shame feels
Don't care how pain feels inside
Right now, don't care what I hear
Don't care what I fear inside

Right now, I don't care how shame feels
Don't care how pain feels inside
Right now, don't care what I hear
Don't care what I fear inside

It doesn't matter
It doesn't matter to meback to top
Rewind
I saw red for a second, so frustrated
I'm not immune to pressure
Thought I could control it, but I buckled
Lashing out for no good reason at all

Wish I could take it back, wish I could just rewind
Wish I could take it back and just not lose my head
Wish I could take it back, wish I could just rewind
Wish I could take it back and just not lose my mind

Words could not make up for the things so stupid
How futile is the effort
So I make this promise and I'll keep it
I'll never hurt the ones I cherish so much

I took it out on the wrong person
I feel pathetic, guilty, and weak

I took it out on the wrong person
I feel pathetic, guilty, and weakback to top
Butting Heads
Here in this tribe that we live in
Misunderstanding is just a part of life
So quick to blame those around us
For all our problems and things that hold us back

Nothing's black and white
There's never one way to do it right
There's no simple answers
Nothing's absolute, there's never one truth
There's just the threat of butting heads

If our pride could be different
We could be strong and agree to disagree
It's not a stretch, not at all
To take a walk, a walk in your shoes
To understand the other man at all
Is the only chance we've gotback to top
Take Control
I've got to take control of the problem
Before it takes control over me
I've got to change the way that I'm seen
And that'll change the way that I'm seen

I'm searching for that comfort zone, inside my head
It's hard to find, but if I relax, I'll be rewarded

I've got to break these thoughts
And see that I'm a friend
Got to accept my humanity
Put this war to an end

Take control, it's not a prison to me
Take control, and I'm a free man from here
It's not fair, but I've been living my life in chains
My whole fucking life in chains
I know that I'm to blame

I've got to take control, take control
Take control over me
I've got to change my way, change my ways
Change the way that I'm seen

But now I've made it
Now I've made it
But now I've made the changeback to top
Kept in Check
Listen, we won't give up on our freedom
Even as we're beaten to submission
Even as they want achievements on their terms
Rulings to be followed to the letter

What a joke, it's to chaotic
There's no control
It's so chaotic
We reject their law

They've paid for these things before
And still nothing's different
They've paid for these things before
And still nothing's different

Pity we don't qualify as equal
Pity we're not worthy of the same rights
Even as humiliation keeps us down
Honor makes us want a better life

What a joke, it's so chaotic
There's no control
It's so chaotic
We reject their law

They've paid for these things before
And still nothing's different
They've paid for these things before
Nothing's different, not at all

We're desperate and lost, helpless
And they want respect from us, helpless
As we're kept in check, helpless
We're kept in a living death, helplessback to top
On the Brink
When we're on the brink
We'd kill for something to happen
When we're on the brink
We'd kill for something to do

Another day, another night that seems like an eternity
Another day, another night that someone might
Turn this boredom around
See the drugs, see the violence and the pure stupidity
The bad will, the malicious kind of thrill
Keeps the boredom down

Another victim, another crime
Misadventure, a tragic use of idle time
Another victim, another crime
The excitement of straying from the straight lineback to top
Trenches
Back down once again, back down into the trench
Is that it to this life
Thoughts of another day, the thought of better days
Is what will keep us alive

Another day, another damn week
Just passing the time
Ignoring all the dullness at it's peak
As I watch the paint dry

How can we justify and say that we're alive
When we can barely survive
How long 'till we see that our humanity
Is slowly rotting away

Waiting, waiting, waiting, burning my time
As it sucks dry my life
Waiting for the break that never fucking comes
The fruitless hope, still aliveback to top
