all Staind lyrics



Run Away
I'm still scared. Afraid of failing
Anticipating, the ride to end.
before the wheels begin to move.

(Run away) So I can hide.
(Run away) I've mastered feeling nothing.
(Run away) I'm dead inside.
(Run away) Why don't I care?

Waste my time, commiserating,
Self medicating - it's my design
Although I know you don't approve

(Run away) So I can hide.
(Run away) I've mastered feeling nothing.
(Run away) I'm dead inside.
(Run away) Why don't I care?

The truth is that I'm not so good
At showing how I feel.
Or keeping my mouth shut
When there's something to conceal.
Or knowing how to love,
Love's not in my memories
How can I rise above
All my insecurities

(Run away) So I can hide.
(Run away) I've mastered feeling nothing.
(Run away) I'm dead inside.
(Run away) Why don't I care?

(Run away) I fight the tide
(Run away) The ebb and flow consumn
(Run away) Still by my side
(Run away) Why should you care?back to top
Right Here
I know I've been mistaken
But just give me a break and see the changes that I've made
I've got some imperfections
But how can you collect them all and throw them in my face

But you always find a way to keep me right here waiting
You always find the words to say to keep me right here waiting
And if you chose to walk away I'd still be right here waiting
Searching for the things to say to keep you right here waiting

I hope you're not intending
To be so condescending it's as much as i can take
and you're so independent
you just refuse to bend so I keep bending till I break

But you always find a way to keep me right here waiting
You always find the words to say to keep me right here waiting
And if you chose to walk away I'd still be right here waiting
Searching for the things to say to keep you right here waiting

I've made a commitment
I'm willing to bleed for you
I needed fulfillment
I found what I need in you

Why can't you just forgive me
I don't want to relive all the mistakes I've made along the way
But I always find a way to keep you right here waiting
I always find the words to say to keep you right here waiting

But you always find a way
To keep me right here waiting
You always find the words to say to keep me right here waiting
And if I chose to walk away would you be right here waiting
Searching for the things to say to keep me right here waitingback to top
Paper Jesus
You take this all for granted. All the things that used to be you. By keeping you distracted just long
enough to bleed you.

A reason for your anger, it's what I need, it's what I need. To recognize the truth it's what I need,
it's what I need. So burn your paper Jesus its what I need, it's what I need, and all the things you do,
its what I need, its what I need.

Don't believe what they tell you, all the lies that they are teaching, when the make the corporations all
the desperate people stealing.

Somebody chose these words for you. Interpretations of the truth. Somewhere behind your fear they hide.
To fill the holes inside.back to top
Schizophrenic Conversations
Are you afraid, afraid of the truth
In the mirror staring back at you.
The image is cracked but so is the view, yeah.
The strength of a tree begins in the roots
That I tend bury into you
At least now the storm can't blow me away.

So crawl inside my head with me.
I'll show you how it feels to be,
To blame like me.

Should I be afraid of this face that I see
In the mirror staring back at me?
So cold are the days where I listen to you.
And you say that I'm weak show me the proof
Because I still exist in spite of you
But I won't compete with you every day.

Schizophrenic conversations that
I'm always having with myself.
I hear these voices in my head are competing.
Maybe I could use a little help
I still have schizophrenic conversations
Where there's no one else around to hear.
I long for solitude and peace within me
Void of all the anger and the fear.

So crawl inside my head with me.
I'll show you how it feels to be,
Fucked up like me.

I'll show you how it feels to be
To blame like me
Ashamed like meback to top
Falling
You in your shell are you waiting for someone to rescue you from yourself. Don't be disappointed when no
one comes.

Don't blame me you didn't get it [3x]

I already told you, that falling is easy its getting back up that becomes the problem, becomes the
problem and if you don't believe that you can find a way out you become the problem, become the problem.

You, all alone, are you waiting for someone to make you whole? Can't you see aren't you tired of this
dysfunctional routine.

I already told you, that falling is easy its getting back up that becomes the problem, becomes the
problem and if you believe that you can find a way out you you solve the problem, solve the problem.back to top
Cross to Bear
Twisted, turning, crashing, burning, all this just to break me down.

You don't know me you don't see me you don't know me because I don't care. But I'm still here, patiently
waiting for you to disappear. Is this my cross to bear?

Faceless, faking, pressure, taking, all this just to bring me down.

I'm still here, reluctantly waiting for you to interfere. Is this my cross to bear?back to top
Devil
She sleeps alone again her eyes are fast not to pretend that all she used to live for was a love she
couldn't bear. In that time of need she does those things she needs to fill the void inside of her because
he was never there

She says I swear I'm not the devil, who do you think I am? I swear I'm not the devil [2x]

He's fast asleep again and he wonders when the pain will end the creaks they may run deeper than his ??
will ever show.

All the people hypnotize and wonder what can save him from his self created hell.

And he says I swear I'm not the devil, who do you think I am? I swear I'm not the devil. [2x]

I always failed to see the little things in front of me the things that mean so much to you wait to let
you know. That I appreciate the way you always tolerate but sometimes when I medicate the frustration in
you shows me how you feel.

But I swear I'm not the devil, although you think I am. I swear I'm not the devil and I scream, I swear
I'm not the devil. Who do you think I am? I swear I'm not the devil.back to top
Please
Failed to see I'm sick of this chances are you are oblivious to how I feel standing on your throne and
I'm sure that I'm not alone, not alone, not alone.

Tell me please, who the fuck did you want me to be? Was there something I couldn't see? Never knew this
would be so political and please I'm still wearing this miserable skin and its starting to come from
within but it's obvious that doesn't bother you, so please

I didn't think that you'd sell me out now I know what you're all about. You might feel in control of
things. But you're not holding all the strings. All the strings, all the strings.

Swallow all your anger I've swallowed all my pride you used up all your chances to keep this all inside
tell me please.

So please don't be telling me its ok I don't buy all the shit that you say and quite honestly I'm fucking
sick of it so please if I cut off this nose from my face then I wouldn't feel so out of place but it still
wouldn't be quite enough for you, so please.back to top
Everything Changes
If you just walked away
What could I really say?
Would it matter anyway?
Would it change how you feel?

I'm the mess you choose
The profit you cannot close,
The devil in you I suppose
Because the wounds never heal.

[Chorus:]
But everything changes
If I could turn back the years
If you could learn to forgive me
Then I could learn to feel,

Sometimes the things I say
In moments of disarray
Succumbing to the games we play
To make sure that it's real.

[Chorus]

When it's just me and you.
Who knows what we could do.
If we can just make it through
The toughest part of the day.

[Chorus]

Stay here together
And we could
Conquer the world
If we could
Say that forever
Is more than just a word.

If you just walked away
What I could really say?
It wouldn't matter anyway.
It wouldn't change how you feel.back to top
King of All Excuses
You, I trusted your intentions the trust you took advantage of now you are sitting in the hole that you
dug around yourself.

You lie so much you think it's true and you know what the truth is. How does someone get to be like you,
the king of all excuses?

Dark deception caught inside the web you have spun. Did you forget you have a family, the damage you have
done.

I trusted you. I trusted in you. ??

Everything must come full circle it kills me that I feel this hurtful I wonder what you're children think
of you, the king of all excuses.back to top
Reply
I have seen to many sad eyes look at me,
Eyes that set me free,
All the places that I've been.

Thank you for the letters that you thought you wrote in vain
And times you chose to stand out in the rain and wait for me,
For me.

Your words,
Your words help me to see
A little honesty
In a world that doesn't share
And those eyes
Tell the story of your pain
Severity of your disdain
In a world that doesn't care.

So thank you for the letters that you thought you wrote in vain
And times you chose to stand out in the rain and wait

We, we understand my pain.
From this I gather strength,
That we are the same.

So thank you for the letters that you thought you wrote in vain
And times you chose to stand out in the rain and wait

The life I live will never be the same without youback to top
