I can't remember when life begun I'll never know what I'll become I'll meet you underground. I was a kid and then I grew up I met a woman and she gave me love I'll meet you underground. Aint no way I'm not afraid If you're old and tired and you've had enough You can go to sleep and you'll never wake up.
Standing on a beach with a gun in my hand Staring at the sea staring at the sand Staring down the barrel at the arab on the ground I see his open mouth but I hear no sound I'm alive I'm dead I'm a stranger killing an arab I can turn and walk away or a I can fire the gun Staring at the sky staring at the sun Whichever I choose it amounts to the same Absolutely nothing I feel the pistol jump smooth in my hand Staring at the sky staring at the sand Staring at myself reflected in the eyes of the dead man on the beach
At War 03:20
I'll let you see who I am I doubt that you'd understand I'm wide open I'll look you dead in the eye I have got nothing to hide What's your problem I'm not the one who's at war Whatever that you're fighting for, it's wrong Just get a hold of yourself You won't get anything else It's just hopeless I can't believe what you said What's going on in your head I don't get it
Better Off 03:19
I wish I could go back I'd live the life I used to have Now the best part's through There's nothing left to look forward to There's nothing left to look forward to I'm not better off now I'm just losing ground The future can't be seen I don't know what will happen to me I cannot give up hope or I'll hang myself at the end of my rope Don't hang yourself at the end of your rope Just one life is all I'm going to get I have to learn to make the best of it Let's make the best of it.
Virgin High 03:00
We just want to get high We’d be better off loaded Fuck the bullshit and fly You got to get the show rolling Save yourself from the old and tired scene Hurting for a way I feel like I’m coming I just gave it try I think I’m to something This is my virgin high We discovered a sound We discovered a potion Nothing’s bringing me down My habit’s set into motion Now I’m into something new and no matter what I do I cannot forget my first time If I pass this on to you It will change your point of view It will help you to expand your mind
We have everything we need You can't have what you can't see All we have is all we know All we know we have been shown Hold on Hold on This is it There's nothing more Hold on Hold on We are what we're living for No one's seen the other side It's just us until we die I believe the heart goes on It won't matter 'til I'm gone Your spirit is flesh and bone We weren't meant to live alone What you see is what you get Live your life You're not dead yet Can god hear you when you pray We're a million miles away Meet the world and do your part Find the god within your heart
Nerve 02:59
I'd rather quit than lose I'd rather wait than chose I'd rather run than fight I'd rather live than die It's not a weakness It's not a problem You shouldn't be concerned I'm not living or suicidal I haven't got the nerve I'd rather suck than breathe I'd rather watch than see I'd rather crash than turn I'd rather jump than burn I'm just surviving life and I've forgotten why If I was hypnotized then maybe I'd remember Help me to remember I'd rather be asleep and I don't want to eat Each time that I wake up I've got to spill my guts
It takes two to tango We have so much more Everyone looks stupid standing around the dance floor Come on let's get off Let's get everyone involved No one gives a shit do what you want Hey y'all come together You can't fight the feeling There's too much chemistry Let's cut all the tension and join hands in anarchy Let it go man
I know you could use my help You can't tell it for yourself You've lost your way Yeah, you've lost your way You can't finish what you've done You can't stop what you've begun What can we say Yeah, what can we say You're below me drowning slowly Stop dragging your feet Stop dragging me down You'd be better off like me You can be what you want to be It's all the same Yeah, it's all the same I think you know your time is out You fucked around and there is no doubt You've lost your way Yeah, you've lost your way That's enough That's enough to kill somebody That's enough so say you’re sorry.
