Bottom of a Bottle
been scared and lonely
i've asked myself
is something wrong with you?
my girlfriend told me
i need some time alone to deal with issues

but something makes me carry on
it's difficult to understand
what i always wanna find

i do it for the drugs
i do it just to feel alive
i do it for the love
that i get from the bottom of the bottle

you always call me
and ask me how i make it thru the day
i'm always falling
i guess it's just God's way of
making me beg

but something makes me carry on
it's difficult to understand
what i always wanna find

i do it for the drugs
i do it just to feel alive
i do it for the love
that i get from the bottom of a bottle

i do it for the drugs
i do it just to feel alive
i do it for the love
that i get from the bottom of a bottle

and i,i wonder why try
and i,i wonder why i bother
and i,i wonder why i cry
why i,i go thru all this trouble

i do it for drugs
i do it just to fell alive
i do it for the love
that i get from the bottom of the bottle

i do it for the drugs
i do it just to fell alive
i do it for the love
that i get from the bottom of a bottleback to top
Silhouettes
Smile Empty Soul Ė Silhouettes

Silhouettes above the cradle hold me down
They won't let me go the wrong way
My mother taught me all the fables, told me how
In the end all the sinners have to pay
But...

I don't wanna live like my mother
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
And I don't wanna live like my father
I don't wanna give up before I die

He worked so hard his bones are breaking
He wore them down but long ago he lost the feeling
His good intentions leave me shaking, show me how
I don't ever want to end up like he did
And...

I don't wanna live like my mother
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
And I don't wanna live like my father
I don't wanna give up before I die

When I have kids
I won't put any chains on their wrists, I won't
Iíll tell them this
There's nothing in this world that you can't be if you want it enough

I don't wanna live like my mother
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
And I don't wanna live like my father
I don't wanna give up before I die

I don't wanna live like my mother
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
And I don't wanna live like my father
I don't wanna give up before I dieback to top
Nowhere Kids
Smile Empty Soul Ė Nowhere Kids

In the land of dirt and plaster
Lies an army of a thousand nowhere kids
Losing ground and falling faster
Into a life that no one should have to live

We are the people that you hate
We are the bastards that you created
A generation with no place
A generation of all your sons and daughters

Behind the fake family image
Behind the smile of a thousand moms and dads
Inside the cage that we've been given
I see an image of the future that we don't have

We are the people that you hate
We are the bastards that you created
A generation with no place
A generation of all your sons andÖ..

We are the people that you hate
The bastards that you created
A generation with no place
A generation of all your sons and daughters

And what did you expect ... a perfect child
Raised by TV sets ... abandoned every mile
We never get respect ... never a fair trial
No one gives a shit ... as long as we smile

We are the people that you hate
We are the bastards that you created
A generation with no place
A generation of all your sons andÖÖÖÖÖÖ..


We are the people that you hate
The bastards that you created
A generation with no place
A generation of all your sons and daughtersback to top
This Is War
Verse 1*

Im just a normal man
I wouldnt hurt nothing at all
But here we are
Our leaders have a plan
I'll only kill if its for them
Now here we are

*chorus*
I drove in a car
And flew in a plane
To come to your house
And kick your door in
Now its down to this
Its just you and me
I'll blow your fuckin head off
For my country

Verse 2*
I go to church and tithe
I go to work in a suit and tie
But this is war
Im really not sure why
But the TV sayes that you were wrong
Now here we are

CHORUS

Verse 3*
My feet hurt from the sand
But still I march on gun in hand
Cause this is war
This isnt what I planned
I wanted to be so much more
But this is war

Therapy
Smile Empty Soul Ė Therapy

Too many weeds in the flowers
Too many pills in the pharmacy now
Too many bugs in the shower
There's too much shit in the air we breathe now

There's too much anger inside me
There's too much scarring when I bleed
There's too much therapy I need
There is no god that I have seen

There's too much doubt in my mom's words
There's too much fear in the way she sees life
I wonder if Iím just like her
I wonder if I can make myself right

There's too much anger inside me
There's too much scarring when I bleed
There's too much therapy I need
There is no god that I have seen

You try to help
You listen well
You cannot change the way I see

There's too much anger inside me
There's too much scarring when I bleed
There's too much therapy I need
There is no god that I have seenback to top
For You
Smile Empty Soul Ė For You

I waited for you
I died inside my own head
And Iíd die again for you

Iím faded and tired
Completely uninspired
And Iíd die again for you

So kill me with the love that you won't give to me (give to me)
And pack the wound with salt I want to feel it bleed (feel it bleed)

Iím searching for reasons
To keep away the demons
And Iíd die again for you
I wish you were near me
could feel it when you hear me say
I'd die again for you

So kill me with the love that you won't give to me (give to me)
And pack the wound with salt I want to feel it bleed (feel it bleed)
You wanted me to crawl so now Iím on my knees (on my knee)

Why's it always have to be me
That's always left out to burn and
Iíll never learn


Why's it always have to be me
That's always left out to burn and
Iíll never learn

So kill me with the love that you won't give to me (give to me)
And pack the wound with salt I want to feel it bleed (feel it bleed)
You wanted me to crawl so now Iím on my knees (on my knee)back to top
Your Way
Smile Empty Soul Ė Your Way

Stand there with your ball and chain
Bitch about what you've created
All caught up in the masquerade
You've already been paid and made it
So don't pretend to know what it's like
To feel the things that we must live through
You only see with your dying eyes
There's only one thing I will ask of you

Can you take this life
Can you make it right
Do you have the words to say to make it
All go away
You act so wise
And so refined
U can keep your lies cuz Iím
Never gonna go your way

Promises of a better life
But what's wrong with the one Iím leading
Everyone has a different fight
A different wound that keeps them bleeding
So what's wrong with a little fun
Everybody needs to find their something
Is this how your gonna treat your son
Fuck 'em up and give em nothing

Can you take this life
Can you make it right
Do you have the words to say to make it
All go away
Can you take this life
Can you make it right
Do you have the words to say to make it
All go away
You act so wise
And so refined
With your bullshit your lies cuz Iím
Never gonna go your way
Never gonna go your way

Everybody needs to find their own way through life
Everybody needs to find their own way
Everybody needs to find their own way through life
Everybody needs to find their own way

Can you take this life
Can you make it right
Do you have the words to say to make it
All go away
Can you take this life
Can you make it right
Do you have the words to say to make it
All go away
You act so wise
And so refined
With your bullshit your lies cuz Iím
Never gonna go your way
Never gonna go your way
Never gonna go your way (Way)
Never gonna go your way (Way)back to top
The Other Side
I walk into the room, you don't have to scream I can hear you
Bad trip the needle sticks, you get your fix from confrontation.
I try to make it past. I don't want to get into it right now.
Can't this family have one day to get away from all the pain?

And through the night I see the light
shining from the neighbor's window.
I dream of life where I'm safe i a home where I am not alone
Someday I will Lay me down on the grass where everything is greener
It always seemed so good on the other side.

I'm sick of all the heat.
You can taste the hate in the air,
running through this family, uncomfortably, it's burning me.
Is anybody there? In your eyes there's nothing to see.
Just because your dreams have died, don't drag me down
I've still got mine.

And through the night I see the light
shining from the neighbor's window.
I dream of life where I'm safe i a home where I am not alone
Someday I will Lay me down on the grass where everything is greener
It always seemed so good on the other side.

Neighbor boy runs up to me, his eye's all black and blue.
I said, "What happened to you boy?"
He said, "My daddy flew off the hook 'cause I was playing too loud,
Guess he couldn't hear the TV,
he said, 'son I'm gonna teach you a lesson'
And then he, and then he flew."

Maybe it's not so good, on the other side.
Maybe it's not so good, on the other side.
It always seemed so good on the other side.back to top
Every Sunday
Smile Empty Soul Ė Every Sunday

I don't have time for your solutions
And I don't wanna deal with your mistakes
No matter how much medication
The doctor says I need to take
I still say....

You're the ones that kill your babies
You're the ones that fuck your kids
You're the ones that throw each other away (Yeah)
You're the ones sitting in church every sunday

And I don't want your religions
And I don't need your sympathies
And I don't want a part of all your hatred
No matter how much you yell at me
I still say...

You're the ones that kill your babies
You're the ones that fuck your kids
You're the ones that throw each other away (Yeah)
You're the ones sitting in church every Sunday (oooooooo) x4

(Yeah)
You're the ones that kill your babies
You're the ones that fuck your kids
You're the ones that throw each other away (Yeah)
You're the ones sitting in church every Sunday (oooooooo)x5back to top
With This Knife
Smile Empty Soul Ė With This Knife

I let myself fall into a lie
I let my walls come down
I let myself smile and feel alive
I let my walls come down
No matter how I try I don't know why
You push so far away
You wrapped your hands tight around my heart
And squeezed it full of pain

With this knife Iíll cut out the part of me
The part that cares for you
With this knife Iíll cut out the heart of me
The heart that cares for you

I can't believe the way you took me down
I never saw the pain
Coming in a million broken miles
Like poison for my veins

With this knife Iíll cut out the part of me
The part that cares for you
With this knife Iíll cut out the heart of me
The heart that cares for you

With this knife Iíll cut out the part of me
The part that cares for you
With this knife Iíll cut out the heart of me
The heart that cares for you

The hate and the fear
The nightmares that I wake me up
In tears
The nightmares and I hate and the fear
The nightmares that I wake me up
In tears
I hate and the fear
The nightmares that I wake me up
In tears I hateback to top
Radio in a Hole
Smile Empty Soul Ė Radio in a Hole

Run to me
I can't live without you
Iíve walked up walls, over them all
So don't think you're such a queen

You're mine in a sick way
You're my radio in a hole, covered up
You're all the love that could be
But never was

Care for me
Like I need you
You're in my mind, it's only time
Before the drug you feed me ends it all

You're mine in a sick way
You're my radio in a hole, covered up
You're all the love that could be
But never was

It's ok to be what you are
Don't pretend to smile
It's ok to be what you are
Don't pretend to smile

You're mine in a sick way
You're my radio in a hole, covered up
You're all the love that could be
But never was

Its only time
Its only time
Its only time in my mind

Its only time
Its only time
Its only time in my mind

Itís met to be
Meant to be
Meant to be in my mindback to top
All My Problems
Smile Empty Soul Ė All My Problem

By now
I should have been somewhere
Or gone to school, or fixed my hair
Back down
Tell it to someone else
Who gives a shit and needs your help

Cuz I found
What I needed
And I don't need you to tell me how you feel
And if I fall
You are not the one that has to cope and deal

All my problems are for me
All my problems are for me

My god
Look at his tattoos and those earrings
He could never get
A good job
Go home and beat your kids
So they don't turn out as bad as me

Cuz I found
What I needed
And I don't need you to tell me how you feel
And if I fall
You are not the one that has to cope and deal

All my problems are for me (All my problem are for me)
I don't need your eyes to see (I donít need your eyes to see)
I will be what I will be (I will be what I will be)

Stop coming around cause you bother me
Stupid motherfucker pull your head out your ass and see
What don't you get, was I stuttering
I don't need to take your shit get away from me

Stop coming around cause you bother me
Stupid motherfucker pull your head out your ass and see
What don't you get, was I stuttering
I don't need to take your shit get away from me

I don't need your eyes to see (I donít need your eyes to see)

I Want My Life
I try to be the man I am
in times of broken lives
and shattered dreams and plans
standing up to fight
the pressures and demands
staring at the knife
and holding in your hand
what used to be your life

This world is crazy, crazy
my dreams are fading, fading
I want my life

You fight
your fucked up holy wars
fire anti-christ
Jesus will come down
and help us win tonight
Now how should i feel
I think I feel alright
so tell me where to aim
I'm blinded by the light

this world is crazy, crazy
my dreams are fading, fading
no one can save me, save me

I want my life
I want my life
I want my life
I want my life...

and when I wake up you'll be here
and it will be the way it was, the way it was...

I want my life
I want my life
I want my life
I want my lifeback to top
Eraser
Smile Empty Soul Ė Eraser

Some days are better, they're better than others
Can't run forever, you're pushing me under
What a way to live my life
I'm hiding from the battles I don't want to fight
What Iíve become

And now it's going grey
All the lines are blurring and decayed
I can't recall exactly who's to blame..... anymore

Is it me or is it you , something isn't right
Of all the things that we could do we just wanna fight
Someday I will find the courage to embrace you
Someday I will find the strength to erase you

Some days I think Iím nothing without you
Sometimes I wish that I could just kill you
What a way we live our lives
It's hard to breathe
It feels like Iím infected by my dad's disease

And now it's going grey
And you're the one I chose to feed me pain
And Iím the one you bring home so ashamed.....through their eyes

Is it me or is it you , something isn't right
Of all the things that we could do we just wanna fight
Someday I will find the courage to embrace you
Someday I will find the strength to erase you (To erase u)

And I see myself in heaven
If I can free myself from this hell

Is it me or is it you , something isn't right
Of all the things that we could do we just wanna fight
Someday I will find the courage to embrace you
Someday I will find the strength to erase you ( To erase you) (To erase you)back to top
