{The Blind video is close captioned,
but I've yet to look at it's version}

Are you ready?!

This place inside my mind, a place I like to hide
You don't know the chances. What if I should die?!
A place inside my brain, another kind of pain
You don't know the chances. I'm so blind!

Another place I find to escape the pain inside
You don't know the chances. What if I should die?!
A place inside my brain, another kind of pain
You don't know the chances. I'm so blind!

-To burn, to burn, to burn inside 22, [to burn deeper,deeper inside 22]
Live a life that seems to be a lost reality
that can never find a way to reach my inner self. I stay alone.
How deep can I go in the ground that I lay?
If I don't find a way to see through the gray that clouds my mind.
This time I look to see what's between the lines.

I can see, I can see, I'm going blind...
I'm blind!back to top
Ball Tongue
{These are my best guesses on this one. Take them for what they are--
what it sounds like. I've heard that it might just be "reggie
gibberish" or "frustrated gibberish", in Jonathan's words}

There you are alone
With no hope of ever having something to be proud of
Something earned without begging
Yes, I know you're a person, a person close to me
Who do you think you are? What more do you want from me?!
Ball Tongue!
-You got the dykes off, I think they'll mind me
Ball Tongue!
-The rag I'm on, we are justified
Ball Tongue!
-Congrats you just fucked up my make-up and shit
Ball Tongue!
What have you done for me?!

Why are you at home buried in your own self pity?
Why do you insist on living the life clean out of me?
Yes, I know you're the person, the person that took down me
[...the person that could tell me]
Does it give you the right to inspect your life revolves around me?!
Ball Tongue!
-You have come to take from your buddy
Ball Tongue!
-You have never been so funky
Ball Tongue!
-The higgle got sick of me
Ball Tongue!
-Ahh, the dick is fine for the day
Ball Tongue!
-You're drug addicted from me [Your brother took it from me]
Ball Tongue!
-Unidentified enemy [in my mind]
Ball Tongue!
-Come fucking back to save us and gave up
Ball Tongue!
-They've come to deliver me [come down, think to me]

You were my brother
Where does our friendship end?
I'm not going to give in

How can you fuck'n doubt me, but not again

Ball Tongue!
-They've driven right by my friends
Ball Tongue!
-They've taken the take above me
Ball Tongue!
-They're a psychopath [psycho munky]
Ball Tongue!
-They've come to enslave me
Ball Tongue!
-They've jacken themselves onto me
Ball Tongue!
-Your fuck'n gangster signs
Ball Tongue!
-They've come not to save them, but they take
Ball Tongue!
-Fuck'n death to fuck'n me

You're psychopaths {repeated}

Ball Tongue!
-Berome's dead at the tecnodrome
Ball Tongue!
-You're right, he's dead, tear gas dropped, but who was it?
Ball Tongue!
-it doesn't of the rhythm of the damn monger
Ball Tongue!
-Can I die?! Can I die?!
Ball Tongue!
-And then, the man kept kick'n me
Ball Tongue!
-He gets him on, they're cool
Ball Tongue!
-He wasn't dead, and then they knocked him on the head
Ball Tongue!
-No more, he's rid of you. You're a Dyke!back to top
Need To
I, I am confused, fighting myself [biting myself]
Wanting to give in, needing your help
Skin cold with fear, fear lives when we touch
Outside I don't know you, but inside I'm fucked

Can you see it in me, skin cold from touch
Each turn confronted with what I have done
You pull me closer, I push you away
You tell me it's okay, I can't help but feel the pain

I hate you
Why are you taken?
I love you
I feel so helpless
Why is it you?
ripping my insides each time I'm with you
why do I cry/try?
why do I really need to?
Fuck you, bitch!
need to . . . fuck . . .

{Someone tried to take a swing at Johnathan during a concert for being
who Johnathan is, so they decided to write a song about it. "Wanna
hear it? Here it goes."}

life is within my body
four clicks . . . alright go

four I just said, you faggot piece of shit on the ground
ahh! four?
four. four?

Oh, hey, what are you talking about Ross?
hey Ton Ton
hey, are you saying so there's no clicks
hey, we're recording, now start
Just fucking do it damn it!

I wanna get a twist. I wish we could put twist
on a fucking tape . . . stupid
Wanna hear it?
Fuck you! Fuck you!
Huh Heuh
Okay . . . piece of shit!

Anger inside builds within my body
Why'd you hit me? What have I done?
You tried to hit me!

-The pain will begin, if you like
[Do you want me to begin, if you like]
Throw your hate at me with all your might
Hit me 'cause I'm strange, hit me!
You tell me I'm a pussy and you're harder than me
What's with you boy? Think hard.
A tattooed body to hide who you are
Scared to be honest, be yourself
A cowardly man!

I don't run around trying to be what's not within me
Look into my eyes, I am free
You're just a wanna-be

To come out

Hit me clown because I'm not from your town, now hit me clown

Clown you ain't shit. Turn around and get your face split.

I'm just too fucking little!
I'm just a fucking mental!back to top
I hide, only to defy you
Take away the only love inside you
I see the face through everyone
Inside I've just begun!
You think I'm out to scare you
I'm only out to prepare you for when you stop and turn around
Your body's going down!

You're gonna waste your time,
Your life will soon be mine,
You're definitely one of a kind, and
You're suffering 'cause of me it's divine

Tell me why you never liked me
Tell me why it is you fight me [Tell me why, so you'll fight me]
Pull down and wait for the perfect time to take what's rightfully mine
You think they're dumb to defy me
You said you don't want to defy me
-You wait, to dumb run anyone [ don't want anyone]
Oh well . . .

You know what, Fuck you!
I'm fed up with you!
I'm not as good as you?!
Fuck no! I'm better than you!

Did you really think you'd beat me at my own game?!
You try to see what you got
Me ripping at your brain!back to top
{he is not bashing gays, but mearly saying how he hated being called a
fagot while growing up for just being different}


Here I am different in this normal world
Why did you tease me? Made me feel upset
Walking stereotypes feeding their heads
I am ugly. Please just go away

I can see inside you fine
This blessing in disguise
Why you treat me this way?
Made to hate to stay

A cell locked,
I can never seem to escape all the laughing, all the pain
If you were me, what would you do?
Nothing, probably. You'd just go on your way

Faget! [pussy]

I'm just a pretty boy, whatever you call it
You wouldn't know a real man if you saw it
It keeps going on day after day, son
-you fake, if we don't want none
I'm sick and tired of people treating me this way everyday
Who gives a fuck?!
Right now I got something to say to all the people that think
I'm strange and I should be out of here locked up in a cage
You don't know what the hell is up now anyway
You got this pretty-boy feeling
like I'm enslaved to a world that never
appreciated shit

He had my gun but he had to find the money
[He might come, but he has a body mighty]
any say, anyway, don't wanna say, anyway, any say,
going away, don't wanna say, anyway
{This part is rumored to just be reggie gibberish,
from the mouth of Jonathan}

I'm just a pretty boy, I'm not supposed to fuck a girl
I'm just a pretty boy, living in this fucked up world

All my life, who am I?!

I'm just a faget!
I'm a faget!
I'm not a faget!
What am I?
I'm not a fucking queer!back to top
Shoots and Ladders
{Their second video. The intro is Jonathan (lead vocalist) playing the
bagpipes. If you listen closely, you can hear birds in the
background. It is rumored that this intro was recorded outside and
the fade-in was done by Jonathan walking toward the mic on a hill}

Ring around the rosies
Pocket full of posies
Ashes, ashes, we all fall down

Nursery rhymes are said, verses in my head
Into my childhood they're spoonfed
Hidden violence revealed, darkness that seems real
Look at the pages that cause all this evil

One, two, buckle my shoe
Three, four, shut the door
Five, six, pick up sticks
Seven, eight, lay them straight

London bridges falling down, falling down, falling down
London bridges falling down, my fair lady

Nick nack patty wack, give a dog a bone
This old man came rolling home
. . . this old man came,
Mary had a little lamb who's fleece was white as snow!
{He says it so weird that it sounds like,
"and if we had to pick up the missing foot um in um in . . ."}

Mary had a little lamb who's fleece was white as snow!
Baa baa black sheep have you any wool
Mary had a little lamb who's fleece was white as snow!
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full
Mary had a little lamb who's fleece was white as snow!
Baa baa black sheep have you any wool
Mary had a little lamb!
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full [white trash coon]
{also from the mouth of Jonathan}back to top

I can, in every way
Distinct the pain I feel inside [The sting, the pain...]
It comes to me
Evil thoughts is creeping through my mind
Who are you to say that I can't speak what's on my mind?
It runs away
It's so predictable

I can, in every way
Illustrate this thing called love inside
[...this thing that's left inside]
Too blind to see, emptiness and sorrow of a lie [...are alive]
You run away to the cover of their pointless ties
You ask me?
It's so predictable

I'm gonna try
[should I? [fuck]]
I'm gonna die
I'm gonna try

another day
Silence overwhelms my mind
who is to say
If I have the time, oh why
should I pray
for all the hate to go away
another day
I can never break free
You wait for me
I call out to you
Another day
I'll live forever!back to top
I can't stand the sight of you
I can't stand what you put me through
Your life's a lie, but you hide
Is it that terrible being you inside?
I can't stand, oh, the thought of you
I can't stand all the things you do
What do you try to justify?
You were just too scared to be you inside

It all go

[I look] at you, all I see, is a man too afraid to really be

I can't stand what you put me through
I can't stand even the thought of you
Your secret lies that you hide
Is it that terrible being you inside?

You try so hard to be wanted
-False emotions tells you fronted
I feel being a person relies on one thing:
Be yourself, let you come through
You're too afraid to really be
Someone who has the thoughts who doesn't care to be
Be yourself, let you come through!

-You'll regret it, you'll regret itback to top
I would like to search inside for all of the things that you will hide
What's the problem?
Can't you seem to
search through these problems that haunt and taunt you
I smile, while you're afraid
You run, while you're so in pain

Do you ever see [it from] outside you fears
Thinking about your life
Thinking about your inner fears

I would like to search inside for all of the things that you will hide
What's the problem?
Can't you seem to open your body and let me touch you

I want you to see the life you have disguised
The world of things that hurt you
Kept all these useless lies
I want you to fear the you wound up inside
Once I took you in, I'll throw you out next time

I tried, you win
My life is ripping your heart out and destroying my pain!

Helmet in the Bush
{Intro is one of their sound tech guys or someone just fucking with
their answering machine, and they decided to keep it.
Excuse the spelling}
{The song is about his drug problem. A problem associated with it is a
shrinking of the penis, hince helmet in the bush}
{Note: Drums are a from a drum machine}

'ello, esta Caco
et eres Caco
Well, you know, you fuck'n call me the Caco, okay?

I keep asking, what's your lie?
It is disturbing
This isn't mine
Days keep passing
A lot at a time
I don't feel right
Please God let me sleep tonight

Everyday confronted circumvents giving in
[...sick of friends giving in]
I just wanna know why!

Don't give it up [Don't get it up]
Don't hit my stick [Don't get my stiff] [I can't escape]

I keep asking
Well, again, please try [...can we please try]
It is haunting
This takes my mind
Days keep passing
Line after line
I don't feel right
Please God don't let me die tonight,
die tonight, die tonight, die tonight

Please God help me
Please God save me
Please God help me from my painful situation

Please God don't let me slip in tonight, please God
Oh, please God don't let me chip in tonight, please God
Oh, please God don't let me slip in tonight, don't let me die
Please God don't let me give in tonight, don't let me dieback to top
{Though I'm not positive if it's actually about Jonathan, the song
is about child abuse/rape from his "daddy"}

Mother please forgive me
I just had to get out all my pain and suffering
Now that I am done, remember I will always love you
I'm your son

Little child, looking so pretty
Come out and play, I'll be your daddy
Innocent child, looking so sweet
A rape in my eyes and on your flesh I'll eat

You've raped!
I feel dirty [I feel daddy] [I fear daddy]
It hurt!
As a child
Tied down!
That's a good boy
And fucked!
Your own child
I scream!
No one hears me
It hurt!
I'm not alive [not a lie]
My God!
Saw you watching
Mommy why?!
Your own child
{The third time this section is sung, "Mother" is repeated
in the background}

It's alright

I didn't touch you there
Mama said she didn't care
I didn't touch you there
That's why mama stopped and stared

I fucking hate you! Mother fucker!
Mother Fucker! I fucking hate you! Fuck You!
You son of a bitch, you fucking ruined my life!
I wanted to die!
I'm sick of it, mother fucker . . . oh oh
Why'd you fuck'n do it to me?
I Hate You!
I Fuck'n Hate You!
I Hate You!
Piece of shit!
I Hate You!

{The woman's voice in the background}
When I awake, I'll see your face
When I awake, I'll see your light
Mother wake me from my dream
Mother wake me in the . . .
{Becomes indecipherable, any help here is appreciated}

{This outro is Johnathan getting a little excited (to say the least)
and not planned. They ran out of tape just as he walked out the
booth (you can hear the door close on the CD). The other band
members were making shit up towards the end to go along with Johnathan}back to top
