Dreaming In Columbian
Worlds apart, separation from my mind.
Just close my eyes to bring me there.
I fall apart, the peices are so hard to find.
A puzzle peice is torn in half.

The absence, of colour. surrounds a broken dream.
Call my eyes to take me there...
One by one I watch, as the peices disappear,
My friends become the ones I hate.
This house of cards it, won't withstand the wind.
I shut my eyes to escape.

All my whites have turned to black.
Everytime I close my eyes, dream in columbian.
All my bugs are comin' back.
Crawlin' on my face, they speak in!

Oo oo OO OO! oo WO! OO oo AHOo oo Oo oo WAOo. (whatever :)(2x)

Worlds apart, a separation from my soul.
Worlds apart, the separation is now whole.
I watch the peices fall apart.
I try to make a brand new start.
I'm fallin' in, I'm fallin' out,
I'm fallin' up, I'm fallin' back,
I'm fallin' down, an' fallin' round, an' askin' why?

I Hear Black
Bad or a wet dream,
Feelin' so inbetween,
Gun in my pocket an' a target on my head.
Right on the wrong road,
He talks to me through dogs,
Not sure who it is but I know it ain't God.

Feel like they're watchin' me,
Know that they're watchin' me,
C'mon lets go got two tickets to the moon.
Now what are you supposed to do?
When they got their hooks in you?

Do you beleive me?
I was there.
And didja hear it!?

Not my fault, wasn't even there.
Rest of the world, all gone insane.
Can ya hear the dogs barkin' can ya hear the dogs speak?
Seen it on the TV, something gonna break.
Now how am I supposed to breathe,
When there is no air?
And how am I supposed to be!?
When those hooks are pullin' me...

If you release me,
Won't be there.
If you leave me!!!
I won't care.

I hear black it has no mercy!(2x)
Repeating in my head.

In my head....(3x)
In my...

From the inside out... talk to me, in, tounges.
The worst.. of this... I understand,
That the flies are breeding,
The wounds are bleeding,
There'll be no healing in my house.

From the inside out.(3x)
You know I'm not the same!

World Of Hurt
Aggravation, fuelin' me,
Money powered, hypocracy.
I have no feelings, you're much the same.
We have no feelings, we feel no pain!

I am numb to all I see,
This the way it has to be,
Gone is hope, gone is need,
I know! stone don't bleed.

What's it worth? if I die.
What's the reason? they all cry.
I have no feelings, too much the same,
Not my problem, I feel no blame.

We are blind and we are cold,
We're afraid of growing old.
We are numb to all we see,
Nothing sacred.

Backs turned to madness, (yeah..)
Backs to misery and I put the,
Brush to the canvas! (canvas!)
An' paint a world!
Paint my world of:


World of hurt. Of hurt. (vamp)

We are blind and we are cold,
Still afraid of growing old.
We are numb to all we see,
Nothing sacred.

(5 again)(2x)
Paints my world of hurt.
Paints my world, in my world of!
In my world, (2x) of hurt.
Mmmm... In my world of hurt.
In my world(4x) of, hurt...!!!!back to top
Feed My Head
Talk is cheep,
I can't afford the, price of wasted time...
Who will reap the profit of the lie?

Illusion fusion impressions of a high...
Sacred is the being of the lie.

Drawn is a picture of myself,
It's all that I see, leaving!
Gone are the cries I heard for help,
The mirror spits,
Reflections of a lie.

Are you waiting for a chance?
Won't happen standing in the rain.

Damage done,
The truth is drowning in a sea of hate..
Wet, they wear the fiction like a badge over their hearts.

Drawn is a picture of myself,
It's all that I feel bleeding!
Gone are the cries I made for help,
The mirror spits,
Reflections of a lie.

Feed my head! I'm hungry for a lie.

Be sure and teach your children well,
To use it pure and slow.
Be sure they teach their children,
Be sure the children's children.

Slight of hand, slight of word.
Slight to beleive, the absurd.
Feed my head I'm hungry.
I'm hungry for a lie.

Drawn is a picture of myself,
It's all that I see greiving!
Gone are the cries I made for help,
The mirror spits,
Reflections of a lie.

(Feed my head) of a lie!
(Feed my head) reflections of a lie.
Feed my head. Feed myback to top
Shades Of Grey
I watch the smoke drift, from my cigarette.
I hear the roaches cross the floor.
Slam dance around me, in my chair I sit.
The grey's leakin' through the door.
There's a shade of grey! I've never seen before....

My gaze fixed on, the space beneath the door.
My life flash. before my eyes...
All this sweat grew from one solitary drop (drop).
Grey's movin' cross the floor.

We walk alone, no one beside us!
It's never simple as black or white.
We should have known, no one would find us!
That we would all wind up in
Shades of grey...(4x)

"It seems like everytime I get a chance ... is quite naked.
And as I turn around, as I turn around ... and
inside there's no doubt its gonna happen again"

Nobody listenin', so I talk to myself.
Sometimes I pay me no... mind...
I lost this argument, so very long ago...
The right words were so hard to find...
I can't breathe in the grey!
An' I can't find the key to the door...

Spiritual Void
Bless me with that special pain,
That makes a man feel right as rain.
My soul-a-fire, feelin' so alive in your own way.

If you need a reason,
To get some healin'.
If your spirit's bleedin'
Then get some healin'!!

I need a new religeon!!

Laughin' like a true beleiver,
Laughin' hard the true deceiver.
Without a worry in this world no friend of time.

(2 again)
Do we get higher?
Ha ha ha higher...
Are we all higher?!
In a spiritual void.

One for neglecting me,
And two on the way to three.
No I never felt so low I never, felt so low as in this void!

Bless us all with what we need!
Self indulgent constant greed.
What's mine is mine is mine you get your own leave me alone.

Weight Of The World
You feel the weight of the world,
And your back's are not that strong!
Can you carry a tune or is the weighting forever so long?!

Do ya freeze in the heat?
Wear sunglasses at night?!
And are you beating my meat to the sound of the same old drum!?

Its time to shed your skin.
And with it promises,
And we bite down hard and feel...

The weight of the world.

Yeah there's a song in them words,
Though they leak through your teeth!
You're shakin' hands with the right while your cutting my throat with the left.
Yeah, it's the weight of the world,
When ya lay down with dogs!
After humpin' your leg they just leave you with flees and just split!

(3 again)
The more I know, the less I understand.
Try not to think, out loud.
The more I know, more I know, more I know,
More I feel....The weight of the world!!

Its the weight of the world,
When ya lay down with dogs!
All the names have been changed but the story is always the same!

Ignorance & Innocence
I ain't lookin' for a reason,
I ain't searchin' for my soul...
I'm findin' all the answers,
It's the questions I don't know...

Seen it from the outside!
Outside lookin' in.
What's it like to be inside?
Will I ever stop payin' for my sins?

Will I see the light of day?
When will all these dues be paid?
Send on down a sign to me,
Or am I too blind too see?

Ignorance! and innocence, go hand in hand.
Ignorance! and innocence, am I guilty man?

Yes I am.

Takin' rides on a one way street to nowhere.
I'm lookin' for a sign I understand.
Passin' time to save my mind,
Following that road that winds,
In and out of my own towns of hell.
(2 again)
(3 again)
(4 again)

Standin' up or layin' down,
My head goes spinnin' round and round again.(2x)
My head is spinning, head is spinning,
My head ah! Ahahah! Ahahahaa!

Ignorance(5x)back to top
Wake up baby, daddy's comin' to crack your skull in two.
Hit you like a hammer baby, down the play a fool.

No to the kicking!
No more to say!
No having just one meaning!
Nothing left to say.
No way.

Surface the anger,
Through immortality.
Should you be, undying? (undying)
You never were, undying. (undying)


Wake up break down daddy's comin', all you heard is true.
So bite your lip and shut your mouth, it's no longer up to you.

No to the licking!
No more to say!
No leavin' you alone...
Nothing more to say!
No way! no

Surface the anger,
Should you be, undying? (undying)
Undying, (undying)

No! for! give! ness!
No! more! to! say!

Surface the anger,
You never were, undying? (undying)
Undying, (undying)
Undying, never be undying.
You never were, undying,
You never seem, undying.
How can you be? undying...back to top
Just Like You
It's just like you to talk when I'm not around.
It's just like you to kick me when I'm down.
Symptoms of your lunacy,
Tryin' to be what you can't be!
I don't want to end up just like you.

I can't hear you,
I can't see you,
I won't hear you.

It's just like you to think you're playin' god.
It's just like me to know you're not.
Weakening with every day,
Turn down the sound and fade away,
No I'll never end up just like you!!

I don't need you!
I can read you,
Never need you.
You can't see me!
You can't bleed me.
Cold and empty,
Just like you.

There lies a fallen man...
Fallen by his own hand!
Once the way it used to be...
Beleived in you but now I'm free!
I beleived in you but now I'm free!
Now I'm free!

It's just like you (just like you)(2x)
I don't need you!
I can read you,
Never need you.
You can't see me!
You can't read me.
I set me free!
Just like you.

Just (4x) like you. (3x)
