Hey, we need a little help here, we are working on a few small updates for the site, the first one is to collect the correct lyrics for each song or version. Currently we are doing it for the main LP releases (+ the Mall soundtrack) and if it'll work well we'll do it for the old bands and side projects.
I've splitted all the lyrics to four parts: Hybrid Theory, Reanimation/Meteora, Minutes To Midnight/A Thousand Suns and Living Things/The Hunting Party. Each package contains the albums and the other releases from the same era, for example the Mall soundtrack can be found in THP package.

What we need from you is to download one of the packages, post here what you've dowloaded so people will download the rest, and test if the lyrics are correct.
Two or three members for each package will be enough so we need about 10 people who wants to help, one member can do more than a package of course. Take the time to do it, it's not urgent and it's better be well done than hurry.

Just to be clear, correct lyrics are the ones that are actually sung by the band members, not the ones that printed on the booklets or the band's official site.

If someone has already posted a set of corrected lyrics, do not post them again. Instead, discuss the lyrics that were already corrected in the first post. If you have corrections to THOSE, post them as a reply.

Thanks in advance.

#Note: Don't bother to download these files if it's not for testing since we'll post the correct version later.

LIVING THINGS

LOST IN THE ECHO

 

 

Yeah

Yo

 

You were that / foundation
Never gonna be another one no
I followed / so taken
So conditioned I could never let go
Then sorrow / then sickness
Then the shock when you flip it on me
So hollow / so vicious
So afraid I couldn't let myself see (Oh)
That I could never be held
Back or up no / I hold myself
Check the rep / yep you know mine well
Forget the rest / let them know my hell (Oh)
There and back / yet my soul ain't sell
Kept respect up / the best they fell
Let the rest be the tale they tell
That I was there saying
In these promises broken / deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie / I can see through
This time I finally let you
Go [x3]
Test my will / test my heart
Let me tell you how the odds gonna stack up
Ya'll go hard / I go smart
How's that working out for y'all in the back, huh?
I've seen that frustration
Been crossed and lost and told no
And I've come back / unshaken
Let down and lived and let go (Oh)
So you can let it be known
I don't hold back I hold my own
I can't be mapped / I can't be cloned
I can't C-flat / it ain't my tone (Oh)
I can't fall back I came too far
Hold myself up and love my scars
Let the bells ring wherever they are
'Cause I was there saying. . .

In these promises broken / deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie / I can see through
This time I finally
LET YOU GO
NO / YOU CAN TELL 'EM ALL NOW
I DON'T BACK UP / I DON'T BACK DOWN
I DON'T FOLD UP AND I DON'T BOW
I DON'T ROLL OVER / DON'T KNOW HOW
I DON'T CARE WHERE THE ENEMIES ARE
CAN'T BE STOPPED / ALL I KNOW / GO HARD
WON'T FORGET HOW I GOT THIS FAR
FOR EVERY TIME SAYING
In these promises broken / deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie / I can see through
This time I finally let you
GO (go) [x7]

 

 

 

IN MY REMAINS

 

 

Separate
Sifting through the wreckage I can't concentrate
Searching for a message in the fear and pain
Broken down and waiting for a chance to feel alive
Now in my remains
Are promises that never came
Set this silence free
To wash away the worst of me
Come apart
Falling in the cracks of every broken heart
Digging through the wreckage of your disregard
Sinking down and waiting for a chance to feel alive
Now in my remains
Are promises that never came
Set this silence free
To wash away the worst of me
Like an army
Falling
One by one by one [x4]
Now in my remains (One by one [x2])
Are promises that never came (One by one by one)
Set this silence free (One by one [x2])
To wash away the worst of me (One by one by one)

Like an army (One by one)
Falling (One by one)
One by one by one [x2]

 

 

 

BURN IT DOWN

 

 

The cycle repeated
As explosions broke in the sky
All that I needed
Was the one thing I couldn't find
And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know
We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground
The colors conflicted
As the flames climbed into the clouds
I wanted to fix this
But couldn't stop from tearing it down
And you were caught at the turn
Caught in the burning glow
And I was there at the turn
Waiting to let you know
You told me yes / You held me high
And I believed when you told that lie
I played that soldier / You played king
And struck me down when I kissed that ring
You lost that right / to hold that crown
I built you up but you let me down
So when you fall / I'll take my turn
And fan the flames as your blazes burn

And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know
We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground
When you fall / I'll take my turn
And fan the flames as your blazes burn
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground [x2]

 

LIES GREED MISERY

 

 

I'mma be that nail in your coffin
Saying that I softened
I was ducking down to reload
So you can save your petty explanations
I don't have the patience
Before you even say it I know
You let your pride or your ego
Talk slick to me, no
That is not the way I get down
And look at how you lose your composure
Now let me show ya
Exactly how the breaking point sounds
I WANT TO SEE YOU CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
SWALLOW UP YOUR GREED
SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY
What is it you want me to tell ya
I'm not the failure
I would rather live and let be
But you came with the right kind of threat to
Push me to let you
Know you can't intimidate me
You disrespect me so clearly
Now you better hear me
That is not the way it goes down
You did it to yourself and it's over
Now let me show ya
Exactly how the breaking point sounds
I WANT TO SEE YOU CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
SWALLOW UP YOUR GREED
SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY [x2]
You did it to yourself [x4]
YOU DID IT TO YOURSELF [x4]

I WANT TO SEE YOU CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
SWALLOW UP YOUR GREED
SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY

 

 

 

I'LL BE GONE

 

 

Like shining oil this night is dripping down
Stars are slipping down
Glistening
And I'm trying not to think what I'm leaving now
No deceiving now
It's time you let me know
Let me know
When the lights go out and we open our eyes
Out there in the silence I'll be gone
I'll be gone
Let the sun fade out and another one rise
Climbing through tomorrow I'll be gone
I'll be gone
This air between us is getting thinner now
Into winter now
Bittersweet
And 'cross that horizon this sun is setting down
You're forgetting now
It's time you let me go
Let me go

When the lights go out and we open our eyes
Out there in the silence I'll be gone
I'll be gone
Let the sun fade out and another one rise
Climbing through tomorrow I'll be gone
I'll be gone
And tell them I couldn't help myself
And tell them I was alone
Oh / tell me I am the only one
And there's nothing that can stop me
When the lights go out and we open our eyes
Out there in the silence I'll be gone
I'll be gone
Let the sun fade out and another one rise
Climbing through tomorrow I'll be gone
I'll be gone
I'll be gone

 

 

 

CASTLE OF GLASS

 

 

Take me down to the river bend
Take me down to the fighting end
Wash the poison from off my skin
Show me how to be whole again
Fly me up on a silver wing
Past the black where the sirens sing
Warm me up in a nova's glow
And drop me down to the dream below
'Cause I'm only a crack
In this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see
Bring me home in a blinding dream
Through the secrets that I have seen
Wash the sorrow from off my skin
And show me how to be whole again
'Cause I'm only a crack
In this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see
'Cause I'm only a crack
In this castle of glass
Hardly anything else I need to be
[i added this line here]
'Cause I'm only a crack
In this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see
For you to see [x2]

 

 

 

VICTIMIZED

 

 

[indonesian speaker]
No regret for the confidence betrayed
No more hiding in shadow
'Cause I won't wait for the debt to be repaid
Time has come for you

VICTIMIZED
VICTIMIZED
NEVER AGAIN
VICTIMIZED
They're acting like they want a riot / it's a riot I'll give 'em
As the siren climbs higher on this violent rhythm
For you snakes in the grass / supplying the venom
I ain't scared of your teeth / I admire what's in 'em
You been waiting in the shadows there, thinking you're hidden
But the truth is you don't have the stomach to get 'em
Go on already, hit 'em / yeah you gotta be kidding
Wanna talk about a victim / I'mma put you there with 'em
VICTIMIZED
VICTIMIZED
NEVER AGAIN

VICTIMIZED
VICTIMIZED
NEVER AGAIN
VICTIMIZED
NO

 

ROADS UNTRAVELED

 

 

Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for paths left alone
'Cause beyond every bend
Is a long blinding end
It's the worst kind of pain I've known
Give up your heart left broken
And let that mistake pass on
'Cause the love that you lost
Wasn't worth what it cost
And in time you'll be glad it's gone
Woah [x4]
Woah [x2]
Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for sights unseen
May your love never end
And if you need a friend
There's a seat here alongside me
Woah [x6]

 

 

 

SKIN TO BONE

 

 

Skin to bone / steel to rust
Ash to ashes / dust to dust
Let tomorrow have its way
With the promises we made
Skin to bone / steel to rust
Ash to ashes / dust to dust
Your deception / my disgust
When your name is finally drawn
I'll be happy that you're gone
Ash to ashes / dust to dust
Ah
Ash to ashes / dust to dust
Ah
Skin to bone and steel to rust
Right to left / left to right
Night to day and day to night
As the starlight fades to grey
I'll be marching far away
Right to left and left to right
Ah
Ash to ashes / dust to dust
Ah
Skin to bone and steel to rust
Let tomorrow have its way
With the promises betrayed
Skin to bone and steel to rust
Skin to bone and steel to rust
Skin to bone and steel to rust

 

 

 

UNTIL IT BREAKS

 

 

It goes a 1, 2, 3
I was born with the hunger of a lion / the strength of a sun
I don't need to sweat it when a competition come
Original style like an 808 drum
So I don't run the track, no / I make the track run
My mama taught me words / my daddy built rockets
I put 'em both together now tell me what I got
It's a pretty smart weapon / I can shoot it, I can drop it
But learn to respect it 'cause you clearly can't stop it
Like that
It ain't over 'cause the
Shark's on the left side / the snake's on the right
And anything you do they wanna get a little bite
It really doesn't matter if you're wrong or if you're right
'Cause once they get their teeth in / nothing really fights
And as for me, I do it like I got nothing to lose
And you can run your mouth like you can try to fill my shoes, but
Steady little soldier, I ain't standing next to you
I'd be laying on the ground before you're even in my view
Like that
Give me the strength of the rising sun
Give me the truth of the words unsung
And when the last bells ring
The poor men sing
Bring me to kingdom come
It's something for ya people on the block to
Black out and rock to
Give you what you need like papa, who shot ya
Separate the weak from the obsolete
The meek / I creep hard on impostors
And switch styles on a dime / quick-witted -
Ya'll, quit trippin' I don't have time for your crying
I grind tough / sucker, make your mind up
Are you in the firing squad or are you in the lineup?
Bang bang little monkey man
Playing with the big guns only get you slain, I ain't playing
I'm just saying / you ain't got a sliver of a chance
I get iller, I deliver while you quiver in your pants
So shake shake down / money, here's the breakdown
You can play the bank I'mma play the bank takedown
And no mistakes now / coming to get ya
I'm just a Banksy / you're a Brainwash
Get the picture
Like that
We swim against the rising waves
And crash against the shore
The body bends until it breaks
The early morning sings no more
So rest your head it's time to sleep
And dream of what's in store
The body bends until it breaks
And sings again no more
'Cause time has torn the flesh away
The early morning sings no more

 

POWERLESS

 

 

You hid your skeletons when I had shown you mine
You woke the devil that I thought you'd left behind
I saw the evidence, the crimson soaking through
Ten thousand promises
Ten thousand ways to lose
And you held it all
But you were careless to let it fall
You held it all
And I was by your side
Powerless
I watched you fall apart and chased you to the end
I'm left with emptiness that words can not defend
You'll never know what I became because of you
Ten thousand promises
Ten thousand ways to lose
And you held it all
But you were careless to let it fall
You held it all
And I was by your side
Powerless
Oh, woah, oh [x4]
And you held it all
But you were careless to let it fall
You held it all
And I was by your side
POWERLESS
Oh, woah, oh [x2]
POWERLESS
Oh, woah, oh [x2]
POWERLESS

It goes a 1, 2, 3

Foot Patrol

 

 

You don't give a damn about the blood and sweat that I spilled
To make it so I'm standing right here
But you can bet your soul and your faith in God that I will
Not a fold in the face of this fear
'Cause I won't be intimidated by you / push down and lied to
I'm not a fool or a punk
And you can try to bruise me and break me
But please don't mistake me
And see if I don't get right back up
Now / now see if I don't get right back up
Now / now see if I don't get right back up
Now / now see if I don't get right back up
Now / now see if I don't get right back up
It's something for ya people on the block to
Black out and rock to
Give you what you need like papa, who shot ya
Separate the weak from the obsolete
The meek / I creep hard on impostors
And switch styles on a dime / quick-witted -

Primo

 

 

Like shining oil this night is dripping down
Night is dripping down
Glistening
And I'm trying not to think of what I'm leaving now
'Cause I'm leaving now
It's time you let me go
Let me go
'Till then carry on and miss me when I'm gone
Oh, don't let anyone give you away
Just carry on and miss me when I'm gone
Oh, don't let anyone take my place
Take my place
This air between us is getting thinner now
Getting thinner now
Bittersweet
'cross that horizon this sun is setting now
Slowly setting now
It's time you let me go
Let me go
'Till then carry on and miss me when I'm gone (Oh)
Oh, don't let anyone give you away (Oh)
Just carry on and miss me when I'm gone (Oh, oh)
Oh, don't let anyone take my place (Oh, oh)
Take my place
Just carry on and miss me when I'm gone
Oh, don't let anyone give you away
Just carry on and miss me when I'm gone (Oh, oh)
Oh don't let anyone take my place (Oh, oh)
Take my place
Tell them I couldn't help myself
And tell them I was alone
Tell them I was the only one
And there's nothing that can stop me
From going home
Tell them I couldn't help myself
And tell them I was alone
Oh, tell them I was the only one
And there's nothing that can stop me
From going home
I'm coming home
From going home
I'm going home
Oh, tell them I was the only one
And there's nothing that can stop me
From going home

And sings again no more
The winds have torn the flesh away
The early morning sings no more

Keys To The Kingdom

 

 

NO CONTROL / NO SURPRISE
TOSSED THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM
DOWN THAT HOLE IN MY EYE
I'M MY OWN / CASUALTY
I FUCK UP EVERYTHING I SEE
FIGHTING IN FUTILITY
We start the final war
Tell me what's worth fighting for
When we know there's nothing more
We take the hand or fist
Just to sell ourselves for this
The path we least resist
NO CONTROL / NO SURPRISE
TOSSED THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM
DOWN THAT HOLE IN MY EYE
I'M MY OWN / CASUALTY
I FUCK UP EVERYTHING I SEE
FIGHTING IN FUTILITY
Uh, I give you what you came for / this is not the same though
Got a different method but I still can bring the pain so
Y'all locked in that same flow / I got that insane flow
High as y'all can get you're never really in my range though
Yes I'm half anglo / half fried panko
All prime-time rhymer / I'mma let the bass bang low
All you fucking lames go / aiming at my name, know
Careful what you shoot because you might hit what you aim for
Careful what you shoot because you might hit what you aim for
NO CONTROL / NO SURPRISE
TOSSED THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM
DOWN THAT HOLE IN MY EYE
I'M MY OWN / CASUALTY
I FUCK UP EVERYTHING I SEE
FIGHTING IN FUTILITY
Oh, woah, oh [x4]
NO CONTROL / NO SURPRISE (​Oh, woah, oh)
TOSSED THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM (​Oh, woah, oh)
DOWN THAT HOLE IN MY EYE (​Oh, woah, oh)
I'M MY OWN / CASUALTY (​Oh, woah, oh [x2])
I'M MY OWN
CASUALTY
Kid: I'm not allowed to say certain things! AUGHHHHH!
Mike: Try and do...try and do the other thing, real quick.

 

 

 

All For Nothing (ft. Page Hamilton)

 

 

Yeah

 

Uh, So what'cha waiting for?
Anticipating more
While you debate what it could take to instigate a war
Yeah, I been hated more than time I wasn't hated for
There's nothing they can fucking say they didn't say before
But you could never see it
Your battle's not mine
Wanna skate and play it safe but this is take a shot time
While you're waiting for a purpose I already got mine
While you tell me step to it like 1, 2, 3, 4
And if I do what you demand
(You say!) You'll let me understand
(You say!) You're gonna hold me to your word
And if I sell myself away
(You say!) I'll have no debt to pay
(You say!) I'm gonna get what I deserve
Woah, oh, woah, oh, oh
YOUR WORD / OBEYED
MY DEBT / REPAID
OUR TRUST / BETRAYED
ALL FOR NOTHING
ALL FOR NOTHING
Kick back there's no other way to say it
So let me break this fucker down for ya
I really don't know ya
You talk but let me show ya where to put your paranoia
You're joking, I don't have a half a sucker bone to throw ya
I'm disgusted, wonder what could've made ya tuck your tail below ya
And no I'm not your soldier I'm not taking any orders
I'm a five star general, infantry controller
Need a lesson? Let me show ya
Have you checking your composure
While I make you step to it like 1, 2, 3, 4
And if I do what you demand
(You say!) You'll let me understand
(You say!) You're gonna hold me to your word
And if I sell myself away
(You say!) I'll have no debt to pay
(You say!) I'm gonna get what I deserve
Woah, oh, woah, oh, oh
And if I do what you demand
You'll let me understand
YOUR WORD / OBEYED
MY DEBT / REPAID
OUR TRUST / BETRAYED
ALL FOR NOTHING
ALL FOR NOTHING
ALL FOR NOTHING
Oh, woah, oh, oh
Mike: Maybe we went too far.
Brad: I don't think we went too far.
Mike: Okay.
Brad: That's a good verse... put the heavy shit there.
Mike: The heavy shit, right here?

 

Guilty All The Same (ft. Rakim)

 

 

Tell us all again
What you think we should be
What the answers are
What it is we can't see
Tell us all again
How to do what you say
How to fall in line
How there's no other way
But oh / We all know
You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
You're guilty all the same
Show us all again
That our hands are unclean
That we're unprepared
That you have what we need
Show us all again
'Cause we cannot be saved
'Cause the end is near
Now there's no other way
Yeah oh / You will know
You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
There's no one else to blame
Guilty all the same
Guilty all the same
You're guilty all the same
Yeah
You already know what it is
Can y'all explain
What kind of land is this
When a man has plans of being rich
But the bosses' plans are wealthy?
Dirty money scheme
A clean split is nonsense
It's insane
Even corporate hands is filthy
They talk team and take the paper route
All they think about is bank accounts, assets and realty
At anybody's expense
No shame with a clear conscience
No regrets and guilt free
They claim that ain't the way that they built me
The smokescreen before the flame
Knowin' as soon as the dough or the deal peak
They say it's time for things to change
Rearrange like good product rebuilt cheap
Anything if it's more to gain
Drained, manipulated like artists, it's real deep
Until no more remains
But I'm still me
Like authentic hip-hop and rock
Til' pop and radio and record companies killed me
Try to force me to stray and obey
And got the gall to say you know how real can real be
You feel me, we'll see
That green could be to blame
Or greedy for the fame
TV or a name
The media, the game
To me you're all the same
You're guilty [x7]
You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
There's no one else to blame
Guilty all the same
Guilty all the same
Guilty all the same

 

 

 

The Summoning

 

 

Guy #1: Watch the ball...
Guy #1: NICE!
Guy #2: RUN! RUN! RUN! RUN!
Guy #1: Alright, yeah!

 

 

 

War

 

 

One, two

One, two, thank you

 

There's no peace / only war
Victory decides who's wrong or right
It will not cease / only grow
You better be prepared to fight
And it will not apologize
For laying down your
LIFE
WAR
There's no pain / it will spare
Fear has become your only right
And once you're lost / in your despair
Forever black eternal night
And it will not apologize
For laying down your
LIFE
War
Destroyer
War
DESTROYER
It needs no side to justify
LAYING DOWN YOUR LIFE
War
Destroyer
WAR
[riot voices]

 

 

 

Wastelands

 

 

Uh, this is war with no weapons
Marching with no stepping
Murder with no killing
Illin' every direction
First / no sequel
Do the math / no equal
John with no Yoko:
More power less people
And no / I'm not afraid of that
Print it in your paperback
Every rap is made in fact to act as a delayed attack
Every phrase a razor blade that's saved until they play it back
Slay and leave 'em laying on the pavement
Bang
Fade to black
In the wastelands of today
Where there's nothing left to lose
And there's nothing more to take
But you force yourself to choose
In the wastelands of today
Where tomorrow disappears
When the future slips away
And your hope turns into fear
In the wastelands of today
Roll credits you get it the show's done
They're talking for just talking but meaning, they got none
None of 'em come proper they talk like a shotgun but
How many got bred with integrity / not one / so no
I'm not afraid to see you suckers hold a blade to me
Ain't a way to shake the ground I built before you came to be
Take it how you take it / I'm the opposite of vacancy
And this is not negotiation ya'll can hate and wait and see
In the wastelands of today
Where there's nothing left to lose
And there's nothing more to take
But you force yourself to choose
In the wastelands of today
Where tomorrow disappears
When the future slips away
And your hope turns into fear
And your hope turns into fear
In the wastelands of today
In the wastelands of today
Where there's nothing left to lose
And there's nothing more to take
But you force yourself to choose
In the wastelands of today
Where tomorrow disappears
When the future slips away
And your hope turns into fear
And your hope turns into fear
In the wastelands of today
In the wastelands of today

Until It's Gone

 

 

A fire needs a space to burn
A breath to build a glow
I've heard it said a thousand times
But now I know
That you don't know what you've got
Oh, you don't know what you've got
No, you don't know what you've got
Until it's gone (Oh, woah, oh)
Until it's gone (Oh, woah, oh)
Until it's gone
I thought I kept you safe and sound
I thought I made you strong
But something made me realize
That I was wrong
'Cause finding what you got sometimes
Means finding it alone
And I can finally see your light
When I let go
'Cause you don't know what you've got
Until it's gone
Oh, woah, oh
Until it's gone
Oh, woah, oh
'Til it's gone
Until it's gone [x3]
Until it's gone
Oh, woah, oh
Until it's gone
Oh, woah, oh
'Cause you don't know what you've got
Oh, you don't know what you've got
No, you don't know what you've got
It's your battle to be fought
No you don't know what you've got
'Til it's gone
'Til it's gone
'TIL IT'S GONE
[baby noise]

 

 

 

Rebellion (ft. Daron Malakian)

I've seen the blood
I've seen the broken
The lost and the sights unseen
I want a flood
I want an ocean
To wash my confusion clean
I can't resolve this empty story
I can't repair the damage done
We are the fortunate ones
Who've never faced oppression's gun
We are the fortunate ones
Imitations of rebellion
We act it out
We wear the colors
Defined by the things we own
We're not without
We're like each other
Pretending we're here alone
And far away, they burn their buildings
Right in the face of the damage done
We are the fortunate ones
Who've never faced oppression's gun
We are the fortunate ones
Imitations of rebellion
Rebellion
Rebellion
Rebellion
REBELLION
REBELLION
WE LOST BEFORE THE START
REBELLION
REBELLION
ONE BY ONE WE FALL APART
WE FALL APART
WE FALL APART
WE FALL APART
We are the fortunate ones
Who've never faced oppression's gun
We are the fortunate ones
Imitations of, imitations of
We are the fortunate ones
Who've never faced oppression's gun
We are the fortunate ones
Imitations of rebellion
Rebellion
Rebellion
Rebellion

 

 

 

Mark The Graves

 

 

One, two

One, two, three, four

 

There's a fragile game we play
With the ghosts of yesterday
If we can't let go we'll never say goodbye
No trace of what remains
No stones to mark the graves
Only memories we thought we could deny
There was so much more to lose
Than the pain I put you through
In my carelessness I left you in the dark
And the blood may wash away
But the scars will never fade
At least I know somehow I made a mark
In the dark
In the light
Nothing left
Nothing right
In the dark
In the light
Nothing left
Nothing RIGHT
The dark
The light
Nothing left
Nothing right
In the dark
In the light
Nothing left
Nothing RIGHT
NOTHING RIGHT
NOTHING RIGHT
AHH

 

Final Masquerade

 

 

Tearing me apart with / the words you wouldn't say
Suddenly tomorrow's / moment washed away
'Cause I don't have a reason, and you don't have the time
But we both keep on waiting for something we won't find
The light on the horizon
Was brighter yesterday
With shadows floating over
The scars begin to fade
We said it was forever
But then it slipped away
Standing at the end of
The final masquerade
The final masquerade
All I ever wanted / the secrets that you keep
All you ever wanted / the truth I couldn't speak
'Cause I can't see forgiveness, and you can't see the crime
But we both keep on waiting for what we left behind
The light on the horizon
Was brighter yesterday
With shadows floating over
The scars begin to fade
We said it was forever
But then it slipped away
Standing at the end of
The final masquerade
The final masquerade
The final masquerade
Standing at the end of
The final masquerade
The light on the horizon
Was brighter yesterday
With shadows floating over
The scars begin to fade
We said it was forever
But then it slipped away
Standing at the end of
The final masquerade
Oh, woah, oh
Oh, WOAH, oh
Standing at the end of (Oh, oh, oh)
The final masquerade (Oh, woah, oh)
Oh, woah, oh
Oh, WOAH, oh
Standing at the end of (Oh, woah, oh)
The final masquerade (Oh, woah, oh)
The final masquerade (Oh)
Oh, woah, oh

 

 

 

A Line In The Sand

 

 

Today
We stood on the wall
We laughed at the sun
We laughed at the guns
We laughed at it all
And when they
They told us to go
We paid them no mind
Like every other time
But little did we know
Today
I looked for a sign
With flames in my hands
A line in the sand
Between yours and mine
And it came
Like fire from below
Your greed led the call
My flag had to fall
But little did you know
Another day / your truth will come
You're gonna pay for you've
Pay for what you've what you've done
You'll get what's yours / and face your crime
You'll tell them give me back what's mine
GIVE ME BACK WHAT'S MINE
I had never been a coward
I had never seen blood
You had sold me an ocean
And I was lost in the flood
We were counting on a leader
We were driven by need
But couldn't take temptation
And we were blinded by greed
You were steady as a sniper
We were waiting on a wire
So we never saw it coming
When you ran from the fire
You can try intimidation
And you can try to ignore
But when the time comes calling, yeah
You are gonna get yours
Another day / your truth will come
You're gonna pay for you've
Pay for what you've what you've done
You'll get what's yours / and face your crime
You'll tell them give me back what's mine
GIVE ME BACK WHAT'S MINE
And so today / your truth has come
You're gonna pay for what you've
Pay for what you've done
You'll get what's yours / you're out of time
And you will give me back what's mine
GIVE ME BACK WHAT'S MINE
Give me
GIVE ME BACK WHAT'S MINE
Give me
GIVE ME BACK WHAT'S MINE
WHAT'S MINE
Give me
GIVE ME BACK WHAT'S MINE
WHAT'S MINE
WHAT'S MINE
GIVE ME BACK WHAT'S MINE
Today
We stood on the wall
We laughed at the sun
We laughed at the guns
We laughed at it all
And when they
They told us to go
We paid them no mind
Like every other time
But little did we know

 

 

 

Darker Than Blood

 

 

Don't you hold your breath
'Cause I'm not coming down
The battlefields have left me only scars
And floating in the dark
I'm swimming in the sound
Of voices that should never been apart
Darker than the blood
Higher than the sun
This is not the end
You are not the only
One
Venom on their tongues
They paint it on the walls
Justice doesn't have the strength to hold
The higher that they climb
The harder they will fall
And we will break their bones until they fold
Darker than the blood
Higher than the sun
This is not the end
You are not the only
One
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah (Woah, oh, woah, oh)
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah (Woah, oh, woah, oh)
Darker than the blood (Darker than the blood)
Higher than the sun (Higher than the sun)
This is not the end (This is not the end)
You are not the only one (You are not the only one)
This is not the end (You are not the only...)
You are not the only one (...One)
(Higher than the sun)
(This is not the end)
This is not the end (You are not the only)
You are not the only one

I can't see you
Do you know Twiggy?
It goes bibibee dee
Itty bitty bitty bitty bit
Uh...
I'm a robot, bot, bot
Robot, bot, bot, bot, bot
And I won't stop, stop, stop, stop, stop
Because I'm a robot, bot, bot, bot

 

 

 

Guilty All The Same (Radio Edit)

 

 

Tell us all again
What you think we should be
What the answers are
What it is we can't see
Tell us all again
How to do what you say
How to fall in line
How there's no other way
But oh / We all know
You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
You're guilty all the same
Show us all again
That our hands are unclean
That we're unprepared
That you have what we need
Show us all again
'Cause we cannot be saved
'Cause the end is near
Now there's no other way
Yeah oh / You will know
You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
There's no one else to blame
Guilty all the same
Guilty all the same
You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
There's no one else to blame
Guilty all the same
Guilty all the same

 

 

 

 

MALL

White Noise

 

 

You've been faking it all this time
You left my trust on the firing line
As the promises break
The only mistakes
Giving you what was mine
Your words are clear but their meaning's gone
The notes are right but the tuning's wrong
And when you tell me again that
I should give in
I can only take it so long, long, long, long
AHHH / You're terrified, terrified
You'd rather throw it all away, all away, all
AWAY / You're terrified, terrified
You'd rather throw it all away
Fear is dancing inside your lies
Exposing secrets that you've disguised
And I'm biting my tongue
As you become
Victim of a compromise
'Cause I know who you really are
Not a scratch where you pretend you're scarred
And it's time that you see
The truth about me
I can only get you so far
AHHH / You're terrified, terrified
You'd rather throw it all away, all away, all
AWAY / You're terrified, terrified
You'd rather throw it all away
THROW IT ALL AWAY, ALL AWAY, WAY
THROW IT ALL AWAY, ALL AWAY, ALL AWAY, WAY
THROW IT ALL AWAY, ALL AWAY, ALL AWAY, WAY
THROW IT ALL AWAY, ALL AWAY, ALL AWAY, WAY
THROW IT ALL AWAY, ALL A-
AHHH / You're terrified, terrified
You'd rather throw it all away, all away, all
AWAY / You're terrified, terrified
You'd rather throw it all away, all away, all
AWAY / You're terrified, terrified
You'd rather throw it all away, all away, all
AWAY / You're terrified, terrified
You'd rather throw it all away

 

 

 

It Goes Through

 

 

Well my sun / it won't shine
It won't light up the back of my mind
And these fires / they won't burn
But to blacken the memories I've earned
And these walls / are so thin
But they somehow keep holdin' me in
'Cause I've pushed / and I know
What's to come at the end of this road
'Cause it goes through
Through, through
Well, my sun / it won't shine
It won't light up the back of my mind
And these fires / they don't burn
Except to blacken the memories I've earned
And these walls / are so thin
But they keep on holdin' me in
'Cause I've pushed / and I know
That there's nowhere left to go
'Cause it goes through
Through, through
'Cause it goes through
Through, through
'Cause it goes through, ooh
'Cause it goes through, ooh

 

 

 

Devil's Drop

 

 

Brad: Can you keep pulling them? Keep pulling them. Can you get out of there?

Brad: Thank you.

[Mike and Brad laughing]

 

Landing in the Devil's drop
I walked out in the snow
And climbed up to the mountain top
A push from death below
Brother failed protecting us
Somewhere far from home
Laying down to rest with us
In fields of earth and coal
Oh
Woah, oh
Oh
Woah, oh
Sailing out away from this
To ports of foreign shores
Let us not forget to miss
The ones we cannot hold
Oh
Woah, oh
Oh
Woah, oh
Landing in the Devil's drop
I walked out in the snow
And climbed up to the mountain top
A push from death below
Brother failed protecting us
Somewhere far from home
Laying down to rest with us
In fields of earth and coal

 

The Last Line

 

 

This is the first line here
This is the first line again
Watch as it disappears
I know the last line
The last line will never pull me in
This is the next line here
This is the next line again
You can forget I'm here
As if the last line
The last line will slowly close again
Oh, oh [x4]
This is the last line here
This is the last line again
Watch as I disappear
I know the last line
The flat line goes here at the end

 

 

 

Ammosick

 

 

This is the first line here
This is the first line again
Watch as it disappears
I know the last line
The last line will never pull me in
This is the second line here
This is the second line again
Why does it feel like fear?
As if the last line
The last line will slowly close again
Oh, oh [x4]
This is the last line here
This is the last line again
Watch as I disappear
I know the last line
The flat line goes here at the end

'Cause I've pushed, and I know

Through, through

'Cause I've pushed, and I know
That there's nowhere left to go
'Cause it goes through
Through, through

Some mistakes I've found (or at least think I've found, I could be wrong):

 

Untitled (In The End demo)

 

 

It starts with one / and multiplies 'til you can taste the sun
And burnt by the sky you tried to take it from
But, if it falls, there's no place to run
Crumbling down / it's so unreal
They're dealing you in to determine your end
And sending you back again to places you've been
And bending your will / 'til it breaks you within
And, still, they fill their eyes
With the twilight through the skylight
And the highlights on a frame of steam
See the brightness of your likeness
As I write this on a pad with the way I feel
Hear the screaming in my dreaming
As it's seeming that you played your part
Like you're heartless, take apart this
In the darkness / but I know that I've tried so hard
I tried so hard / and got so far
But, in the end / it doesn't even matter
I had to fall / to lose it all
But, in the end / it doesn't even matter
I look down the line / and what's there is not what ought to be
Held back by the battles they fought for me
Calling me to be part of their property
And, now, I see that I get no chance
I get no break / fakes and snakes quickly lead to mistakes
And, as the tightrope within / slowly starts to thin
I can only hope that they close their eyes
To the twilight through the skylight
And the highlights on a frame of steel
See the brightness of your likeness
As I write this on a pad to the way I feel
Hear the screaming in my dreaming
As it's seeming that you played your part
Like you're heartless, take apart this
In the darkness / but I know that I've tried so hard
I tried so hard / and got so far
But, in the end / it doesn't even matter
I had to fall / to lose it all
But, in the end / it doesn't even matter
I put my trust / in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this / there's only one thing
You should know
I put my trust / in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this / there's only one thing
You should know
I put my trust / in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this / there's only one thing
You should know
I tried so hard / and got so far
But, in the end / it doesn't even matter
I had to fall / to lose it all
But, in the end / it doesn't even matter

 

A Place For My Head

 

 

I watch how the moon sits in the sky in the dark night
Shining with the light from the sun
The sun doesn't give light to the moon assuming
The moon's going to owe it one
It makes me think of how you act to me
You do favors and then rapidly
You just turn around and start asking me
about things that you want back from me
I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place, to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
(You'll see it's not meant to be)
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head
Maybe someday I'll be just like you
and step on people like you do and
Run away the people I thought I knew
I remember back then who you were
You used to be calm, used to be strong
Used to be generous but you should've known
That you'd wear out your welcome
now you see how quiet it is, all alone
I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place, to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place, to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
(You'll see it's not meant to be)
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
(You'll see it's not meant to be)
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head
Shut up…what! **I have a heard time hearing what Chester screams at this part, but I always thought it was "Stay... A-... way..."
I am so sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place, to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
I'm so sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place, to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
Go away from me

I think I went over the character limit in my first post, so here's the post for RECHARGED.

A LIGHT THAT NEVER COMES

 

 

Nah, you don't know me
Lightning above and a fire below me
You cannot catch me, cannot hold me
You cannot stop much less control me
When it rains, it pours
When the floodgates open, brace your shores
That pressure don't care when it breaks your door
Say it's all you can take, better take some more
'Cause I know what it's like to test fate (Oh, oh)
Had my shoulders pressed with that weight
Stood up strong in spite of that hate
The night gets darkest right before dawn (Oh, oh)
What don't kill you makes you more strong
And I been waiting for it so long
The nights go on
Waiting for a light that never comes
I chase the sun
Waiting for the light that never comes
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Waiting for a light that never comes
When I was young, they told me, they said
Make your bed, you lie in that bed
A king can only reign 'till instead
There comes that day it's off with his head
The night gets darkest right before dawn (Oh, oh)
What don't kill you makes you more strong
You'll have my mercy then when you're gone
The nights go on
Waiting for a light that never comes
I chase the sun
Waiting for the light that never comes
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Waiting for the light that never comes
And I told them,
Nah, you don't know me
Lightning above and a fire below me
You cannot catch me, cannot hold me
You cannot stop much less control me
When it rains, it pours
When the floodgates open, brace your shores
That pressure don't care when it breaks your door
Say it's all you can take, better take some more
Oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Waiting for the light that never comes
The nights go on
Waiting for a light that never comes
I chase the sun
Waiting for the light that never comes
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Waiting for the light that never comes

 

 

 

CASTLE OF GLASS (M. Shinoda Remix)

 

 

Take me down to the river bend
Take me down to the fighting end
Wash the poison from off my skin
Show me how to be whole again
Fly me up on a silver wing
Past the black where the sirens sing
Warm me up in a nova's glow
And drop me down to the dream below
'Cause I'm only a crack
In this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see
Take me down to the river bend
Take me down to the fighting end
Wash / wash the poison from off my skin
Show me how to be whole again
Fly me up on a silver wing
Past the black where the sirens sing
Warm / warm me up in a nova's glow
And drop me down to the dream below
'Cause I'm only a crack
In this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see
For you to see [x4]
'Cause I'm only a crack
In this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
'Cause I'm only a crack
In this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see [x8]
'Cause I'm only a crack (For you to see)
In this castle of glass (For you to see)
Hardly anything there for you to see (For you to see / For you to see)
'Cause I'm only a crack (For you to see)
In this castle of glass (For you to see)
Hardly anything there for you to see (For you to see / For you to see)

 

 

 

LOST IN THE ECHO (Killsonik Remix)

 

 

Oh

Woah, oh, oh, oh

Oh

Woah, oh, oh, oh

Oh

Woah, oh, oh, oh

 

In these promises broken / deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie / I can see through
This time I finally let you
Go [x3]
Finally
LET YOU GO
This time I finally let you
Go
Test my will / test my heart
Let me tell you how the odds gonna stack up
Ya'll go hard / I go smart
How's that working out for y'all in the back, huh?
I've seen that frustration (GO / GO)
Been crossed and lost and told no
And I've come back / unshaken
Let down and lived and let go
So you can let it be known
I don't hold back I hold my own
I can't be mapped / I can't be cloned
I can't C-flat / it ain't my tone
I can't fall back I came too far
Hold myself up and love my scars
Let the bells ring wherever they are
'Cause I was there saying. . .

In these promises broken / deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie / I can see through
This time I finally let you
Go [x2]
Go (Go)

Oh

Woah, oh, oh, oh

Oh

Woah, oh, oh, oh

Oh

Woah, oh, oh, oh

This time I [x4]
Finally
LET YOU GO
This time I finally let you
Go
GO / GO
Promises [x10]
GO / GO
In these promises broken / deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie / I can see through
This time I finally let you
Go [x2]
Go (Go)

 

VICTIMIZED (M. Shinoda Remix)

 

 

VICTIMIZED
VICTIMIZED
NEVER AGAIN
VICTIMIZED [x4]
They're acting like they want a riot / it's a riot I'll give 'em
As the siren climbs higher on this violent rhythm
For you snakes in the grass / supplying the venom
I ain't scared of your teeth / I admire what's in 'em
You been waiting in the shadows there, thinking you're hidden
But the truth is you don't have the stomach to get 'em
Go on already, hit 'em / yeah you gotta be kidding
Wanna talk about a victim / I'mma put you there with 'em
VICTIMIZED
VICTIMIZED
NEVER AGAIN
VICTIMIZED [x4]
They're acting like they want a riot / it's a riot I'll give 'em [x3]
They're acting like they want a riot / it's a riot, riot, riot, riot
No / no
No regret for the confidence betrayed
No more hiding in shadow
'Cause I won't wait for the debt to be repaid
Time has come for you

VICTIMIZED
VICTIMIZED
NEVER AGAIN
VICTIMIZED [x4]
VICTIMIZED
VICTIMIZED
NEVER AGAIN
VICTIMIZED [x8]

 

I'LL BE GONE (Vice Remix; ft. Pusha T.)

Like shining oil this night is dripping down
Stars are slipping down
Glistening
And I'm trying not to think what I'm leaving now
No deceiving now
It's time you let me go
Let me go
I'll be gone
I'll be gone
King Push
Dope game keep callin'
Dope boys keep fallin'
Askin' me, what's my legacy?
I just wanna die ballin'
I just wanna die pourin'
I just wanna ride foreign
I just wanna bring hoes together:
"Lonnie, Lisa, meet Lauren"
(Wooo!) Then I'll be gone, keep 'em movin' what I be on
Damn right I know what time it is
Take full leap and a turn be on (in here!)
I'm stylin' on 'em, I'm swervin' on 'em
I know it's wrong, but life's a bitch, she turn me on (Oww!)
Yeah
And to each his own
Hating ain't something that we condone,
Cause the way I flip when the beat come on
I'll make you pump that shit 'til the speakers blown
Ya'll wanna cop a plea, who you gonna talk to if not to me?
Because if the chain of command worked properly
You gotta earn a few stripes before you can talk to me
Word to Pusha, word to Vice, built the track once and killed it twice
Built the stage up and killed the lights, opening act was like fuck my life
Ya'll can love it, ain't nothing wrong, forget the hating that ya'll be on
Enjoy it now because after long, Keyser Soze, I'll be gone
I'll be gone
I'll be gone
When the lights go out and we open our eyes
Out there in the silence I'll be gone
I'll be gone
Let the sun fade out and another one rise
Climbing through tomorrow I'll be gone
I'll be gone
When the lights go out and we open our eyes
Out there in the silence I'll be gone
I'll be gone
I'll be gone
I'll be gone
Robotic Voice: Drop the bassline
I'll be gone
I'll be gone
I'll be gone

 

LIES GREED MISERY (Dirtyphonics Remix)

 

 

That is not the way I get
That is not the way it goes [x2]
That is not the way I get down
That is not the way it goes down [x8]
I WANT TO SEE YOU CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
SUFFER ALL ALONE
CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY
CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
SUFFER ALL ALONE
CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY
YOU DID IT TO YOURSELF [x4]
I WANT TO SEE YOU
Exactly how the breaking point sounds
I WANT TO SEE YOU
That is not the way I get
I WANT TO SEE YOU
Exactly how the breaking point sounds
SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY
CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
SUFFER ALL ALONE
CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY
You did it to yourself [x4]
YOU DID IT TO YOURSELF [x4]
I WANT TO SEE YOU
Exactly how the breaking point sounds
I'mma be that nail in your coffin
Saying that I softened
I was ducking down to reload
So you can save your petty explanations
I don't have the patience
Before you even say it I know
You let your pride or your ego
Talk slick to me, no
That is not the way I get down
And look at how you lose your composure
Now let me show ya
Exactly how the breaking point sounds
I WANT TO SEE YOU
Exactly how the breaking point sounds
That is not the way I get down
That is not the way it goes down [x4]

 

 

 

ROADS UNTRAVELED (Rad Omen Remix; ft. Bun B.)

 

 

Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for paths left alone
Cause beyond every bend is a long blinding end
It's the worst kind of pain I've known
Give up your heart left broken
And let that mistake pass on
Cause the love that you lost wasn't worth what it cost
And in time, you'll be glad it's gone
Whoa [x13]
Woah [x4]
Woah [x2]
Well, it's our life and it's our time
And it's our place and it's our choice
These are all our thoughts with our views
Out of our minds with our voice
It's our oath to this generation,
They call it fake, we call it fate
(You see) they don't like us or understand us
And they just hope we all fall away
But we won't stop, and we won't quit
And we won't settle for what they give
And we'll keep on standin'
Keep on fightin' no backin' down, that's how we're livin'
Our minds are made up
And we're focused no more believin' what we've been told
'Cause our bags are packed, there's no turnin' back
We walk alone on these winding roads
Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for sights unseen
May your love never end and if you need a friend
There's a seat here alongside me
Whoa [x13]
Woah [x4]
Woah [x2]
May your love never end and if you need a friend
There's a seat here alongside me

 

 

 

POWERLESS (Enferno Remix)

 

 

And you held it all
But you were careless to let it fall
You held it all
And I was by your side
POWERLESS
Oh, woah, oh [x8]
POWERLESS [x4]
And you held it all
But you were careless to let it fall
You held it all
And I was by your side
POWERLESS
Oh, woah, oh [x2]
POWERLESS
Oh, woah, oh [x2]
POWERLESS
Oh, woah, oh
POWERLESS [x5]

 

 

 

BURN IT DOWN (Tom Swoon Remix)

 

 

Wait at the turn [x16]
We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground
Come
Wait at the turn [x14]
Woah, oh
We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

 

 

 

UNTIL IT BREAKS (Datsik Remix)

 

 

Original style like an 808 drum [x2]

I don't run the track, no / I make the track run [x2]

Original style like an 808 drum [x2]

I don't run the track, no / I make the track run [x2]

Like that [x4]

Drop it

Like that [x4]

Make the track run like that

Make the track run like that

 

It goes a 1, 2, 3

Playing with the big guns only get you slain [x3]

Playing with the big guns / Big guns / Big guns

Playing with the big guns only get you slain [x4]

Like that [x5]

I don't run the track, no / I make the track run like that

 

Give me the strength of the rising sun
Give me the truth of the words unsung
And when the last bells ring
The poor men sing
Bring me to kingdom come

 

Drop it

Like that [x4]

Drop it

Like that [x4]

Make the track run like that

Make the track run like that

 

It goes a 1, 2, 3

Playing with the big guns only get you slain [x3]

Playing with the big guns / Big guns / Big guns

Playing with the big guns only get you slain [x4]

Like that [x4]

 

Stop it [x3]

Like that

 

 

 

SKIN TO BONE (Nick Catchdubs Remix)

 

 

This is that post apoc, post pac ghost on the block

Supposed to be close but I swear right now they close to be not
Put the gold in the pot
Put 'em on, bring 'em on, nigga, hope that they drop
But I bomb on them all
On with they the bongs
Instead be hopin' I pop
You open a knot
You openly admittin' you not
Your openly be spittin' shit, you don't be givin' a lot
You are be givers givin' these women a reason to start
I'm Michael Tyson, Bison reliving the villainous plot
My vision of rock
My vision is Kai Killer Korat Vespa
Feel us, so who real or realest enough
I'm callin' your bluff
I'll squander all your borders you trust
You won't be carrying your orders; automatically dust
I'm more than adequately rushed
Plus grammatically tough
Trust the elephant tusk, trunk hangs over the top, punk
Who want it?
I'm guaranteed to get it and flaunt it
I'm playin' Buckley as my intro as I exit the gauntlet
Skin to bone / steel to rust
Ash to ashes / dust to dust
Let tomorrow have its way
With the promises we made
Skin to bone / steel to rust
You can't stop it
All you can do is watch it while it's happenin' like a tragic accident
Rappers go and get your coffins
Skin to bone
The Hiram Abiff of this rap shit
My legacy's set in stone, for show, no asterisk
Concept: immaculate
Start to finish
I'm Lil' Wayne's dentist
Look at the platinum plaques I'm getting (WOOOO!)
It's not an accident, you flew off the roof
You said you was fly, so I just wanted to see if it's true
I got the juice like GQ, but I wish it was Grey Goose
Let it mix with my prescriptions and I'm turning into Keith Moon
A T2 Terminator: Demi-God Jesus
Fort Minor: We Major; let's take it to phase II
The mission isn't finished yet
I've been on the Internet
Hearin' fans talking, maybe we should consider it
Ah
Skin to bone and steel to rust
Ah
Skin to bone and steel to rust
I'm on some taxidermy rap shit/talk about some raw game
You're nothin but a trophy mounted on my door frame
I spit that propane, light you with a slow flame
And watch you burn until there's nothin' but a gold chain
Yeah you'll be some crispy critters
You'll wish you with us
You'll wish what we did, you did it
You can't, you kiddin? I don't have a shoe you fit in
You're as soft as a motherfuckin' newborn kitten
I'm an animal, tearing flesh into bone
Randomly rippin' everything gone
Unless they forget what, then let it be known
I'll bury every competitor, every predator
Anyone ever forget it, you'll regret it forever
Never been nothing short of a legend, you peasants will learn
I'll stay standin' in the front like I'm forgetting my turn
For these matchstick rappers, this is meeting adjourned
I ain't even gotta match em', I'm just letting them burn
I'm / I'm / I'm just letting them burn

 

 

 

I'LL BE GONE (Schoolboy Remix)

 

 

Like shining oil this night is dripping down
Stars are slipping down
Glistening
And I'm trying not to think what I'm leaving now
No deceiving now
It's time you let me know
Let me know
When the lights go out and we open our eyes
Out there in the silence I'll be gone
I'll be gone
Let the sun fade out and another one rise
Climbing through tomorrow I'll be gone
I'll be gone
I'll be gone
I'll be gone
I'll be gone
This air between us is getting thinner now
Into winter now
Bittersweet
And 'cross that horizon this sun is setting down
You're forgetting now
It's time you let me go
Let me go

When the lights go out and we open our eyes
Out there in the silence I'll be gone
I'll be gone
Let the sun fade out and another one rise
Climbing through tomorrow I'll be gone
I'll be gone
And tell them I couldn't help myself
And tell them I was alone
Oh / tell me I am the only one
And there's nothing that can stop me
I'll be gone
I'll be gone
I'll be gone

 

 

 

UNTIL IT BREAKS (Money Marks Remix)

 

 

It goes a 1, 2, 3
I was born with the hunger of a lion / the strength of a sun
I don't need to sweat it when a competition come
Original style like an 808 drum
So I don't run the track, no / I make the track run
My mama taught me words / my daddy built rockets
I put 'em both together now tell me what I got
It's a pretty smart weapon / I can shoot it, I can drop it
But learn to respect it 'cause you clearly can't stop it
Like that
It ain't over 'cause the
Shark's on the left side / the snake's on the right
And anything you do they wanna get a little bite
It really doesn't matter if you're wrong or if you're right
'Cause once they get their teeth in / nothing really fights
And as for me, I do it like I got nothing to lose
And you can run your mouth like you can try to fill my shoes, but
Steady little soldier, I ain't standing next to you
I'd be laying on the ground before you're even in my view
Like that
Give me the strength of the rising sun
Give me the truth of the words unsung
And when the last bells ring
The poor men sing
Bring me to kingdom come
It's something for ya people on the block to
Black out and rock to
Give you what you need like papa, who shot ya
Separate the weak from the obsolete
The meek / I creep hard on impostors
And switch styles on a dime / quick-witted -
Ya'll, quit trippin' I don't have time for your crying
I grind tough / sucker, make your mind up
Are you in the firing squad or are you in the lineup?
Bang bang little monkey man
Playing with the big guns only get you slain, I ain't playing
I'm just saying / you ain't got a sliver of a chance
I get iller, I deliver while you quiver in your pants
So shake shake down / money, here's the breakdown
You can play the bank I'mma play the bank takedown
And no mistakes now / coming to get ya
I'm just a Banksy / you're a Brainwash
Get the picture
Like that
We swim against the rising waves
And crash against the shore
The body bends until it breaks
The early morning sings no more
So rest your head it's time to sleep
And dream of what's in store
The body bends until it breaks
And sings again no more
'Cause time has torn the flesh away
The early morning sings no more

 

 

 

A LIGHT THAT NEVER COMES (Rick Rubin Reboot)

Nah, you don't know me
Lightning above and a fire below me
You cannot catch me, cannot hold me
You cannot stop much less control me
When it rains, it pours
When the floodgates open, brace your shores
That pressure don't care when it breaks your door
Say it's all you can take, better take some more
'Cause I know what it's like to test fate (Oh, oh)
Had my shoulders pressed with that weight
Stood up strong in spite of that hate
The night gets darkest right before dawn (Oh, oh)
What don't kill you makes you more strong
And I been waiting for it so long
The nights go on
Waiting for a light that never comes
I chase the sun
Waiting for the light that never comes
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Waiting for a light that never comes
When I was young, they told me, they said
Make your bed, you lie in that bed
A king can only reign 'till instead
There comes that day it's off with his head
The night gets darkest right before dawn (Oh, oh)
What don't kill you makes you more strong
You'll have my mercy then when you're gone
The nights go on
Waiting for a light that never comes
I chase the sun
Waiting for the light that never comes
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Waiting for the light that never comes
The nights go on
Waiting for a light that never comes
I chase the sun
Waiting for the light that never comes
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh
Waiting for the light that never comes
The nights go on
Waiting for a light that never comes (Take some more)
I chase the sun
Waiting for the light that never comes

On APFMH, at least live, he screams "Take away!" Don't know if that's what he actually screams on the studio version, though.

 

Before Mike raps the last verse (I'm so sick of tension...) Chester screams what seems like three words ("Shut up, why?", maybe). In live version he screams only two (Probably the "Take away!) and then shouts a "AAAAAH" that leads to Mike's final verse.

But I really don't know for sure what he scream actually.

 

The linkinpark.com says that is "Shut up….what!", as iPodwithnomusic said before. Makes sense, as he screams "Go away from me" after that... I guess :lol:

Soul, your lyrics for Ammosick are wrong. They are different from The Last Line.

Here's the second verse of Ammosick:

This is the second line here
This is the second line again
Why does it feel like fear?
As if the last line
The last line will slowly close again

Rhinestone

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top, I stop
At the core of the rotten
Stopping just what I thought
But the sun has escaped us
So, I'm fighting the sky
And I'm far from awakeness
Thinking "why did I try?"

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top, I stop
At the core of the rotten
Stopping just what I thought
But the sun has escaped us
So, I'm fighting the sky
And I'm far from awakeness
Thinking "why did I try?"


From the thread to the needle, middle-to-end
When skies cock back and shock that which couldn't defend
The rain then sends dripping an acidic question
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then, with the eyes tightly shut, looking through the rust
And rot and dust, a spot of light floods the floor
And pours itself upon the world of pretend
Then the eyes ease open and it's dark again

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top, I stop
At the core of the rotten
Stopping just what I thought
But the sun has escaped us
So, I'm fighting the sky
And I'm far from awakeness
Thinking "why did I try?"

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top, I stop
At the core of the rotten
Stopping just what I thought
But the sun has escaped us
So, I'm fighting the sky
And I'm far from awakeness
Thinking "why did I try?"


In a minute, you'll find me
Eyes burn me up
You say you'll never forget me
But the lies have piled up

Moving all around, screaming of the ups and downs
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
And as the wheels go 'round, the sunset creeps
Past the street lamps, cars, chainlinks and concrete
A window then grows and captures the eye
And cries out yellow light as it passes it by
A small black figure sits in front of a box
Inside a box of rock with the needles on top
Nothing stops in this land of the chain
When brains lose, not knowing they were part of the game
And then insides grow but the box stays the same
A shame - shovel up the pieces of the pain
You could try to hide yourself in the world of pretend
But when the paper's crumpled up, it can't be perfect again

 

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top, I stop
At the core of the rotten
Stopping just what I thought
But the sun has escaped us
So, I'm fighting the sky
And I'm far from awakeness
Thinking "why did I try?"

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top, I stop
At the core of the rotten
Stopping just what I thought
But the sun has escaped us
So, I'm fighting the sky
And I'm far from awakeness
Thinking "why did I try?"

 

In a minute, you'll find me
Eyes burn me up
You say you'll never forget me
But the lies have piled up

 

Yeah, I got you caught in the act
You better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

Yeah, I got you caught in the act
You better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

Yeah, I got you caught in the act
You better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

Yeah, I got you caught in the act
You better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

Yeah, I got you caught in the act
You better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

Yeah, I got you caught in the act
You better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

Yeah, I got you caught in the act
You better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

Yeah, I got you caught in the act
You better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

 


In a minute, you'll find me
Eyes burn me up
You say you'll never forget me

But the lies have piled up

 

In a minute, you'll find me

Eyes burn me up
You say you'll never forget me

But the lies keep piling up

 

Reading My Eyes

The microphone molester / machete undresser
“Stupid-dope-fresh” type shit resurrector
Top gun / miramar / best of the best-er
The leave-an-MC-peace-in-rest-er
Skill tester / the flex-the-gunner
The make-funner / the adversary make runner
Make summer cold with rhymes i spit
Kick gift to lifted delinquent wit
I be the prophet / my hand–top it? stop it.
Fly like rocket when I rock it
Lock it down with this perverse verse
Every fuckin curse a burst of hurt
Move crowds: physical fitness rhymes
Coke heads couldn't do my lines
I'm decorated like Christmas pines
My battalion rocks
MCs become silhouettes of chalk

Reading my eyes will say it in many ways
Losing my pride will save it in many days

Hit the dirt because the words I spit will
Do more than just rip your shirt
I'll bitch slap your soul
Contact the track control
You coming at me? You can't hack it though
So ridiculous
Watching my crew get sick of this
Wickedness
Pitchin' this
Lyrical viciousness to crews and cliques
Made of men and mistresses
This is my life
The twilight in the fight night
And trying to see nothing but the highlights
When I write
These eyes on horizons
Die for my song
Cry rhymes in krylon
Fire on / move men telekenetically
Esoterically beat-speaking with clarity
Feel my verity / heroism of heresy
And sever every MC I see with severity

Reading my eyes will say it in many ways
Losing my pride will save it in many days

 

Why not

What I came

Why not

What I came
Why not

What I came
Why not give me what I came to deserve
Why not give me what I came to believe

Why not give me what I came to deserve
Why not give me what I came to believe

 

Why?

Reading my eyes will say it in many ways
Losing my pride will save it in many days

 

Fuse

Of course, you know what a fuse is. It's a long piece of cord, impregnated with gun powder. When you strike a match, and light it, it burns—fitfully—spiraling to its end, at which there is a little surprise.

From the planet of Krypton
Insuring suit emcees you'll be ripped on
You fell off, and it's my lyric sheet you slipped on
Get gone, spit on mics made in Hong Kong
Rock on, sing songs, we're mightier than King Kong
Or Donkey Kong
You think you want me, or want this? You want some?
Hold your reputation for ransom
With these here handsomely-crafted tactics
To break a snake emcee like a cheap prophylactic
Galactic, spaced-out gab that grabs attention
Got heads nodding like a Pez Candy convention
Ride on patch traps, gas tracks, and sections
Kid says this, he'll need witness protection

Trying to see what I can't be seeing
I'll be here
Trying to see what I can't be seeing
I'll be here

Yo, dig this
Yo, it's the junkyard, crooked letter-C-I-EN-tific
Duck us, the ruckus I'll bring stings your eardrum
Hear one, la-la-let loose, find me fearsome
Opposing troops on my home front shall be gone
Testing the eight hundred-eighteenth battalion
Shall I go on? Crews run like rebels
Enola Gay rhymes kick the notch up a level in intensity
Send back attacks that you sent to me
Blow up your spot with grenades that were meant for me
Empty three verses on 33 emcees
Swiss cheese your gear, putting shrapnel in the breeze
We're lead emcees with enemy companies
With my hand full of lyrics, talking ‘bout, you want these?
Please, don't even speak the name of channels and go low-gadget mic shit
Put it down like pens for my friends and my fam
Better dodge, or I'll ram this mic straight through the back of an emcee's head
With the strength of He-Man, I'll bet you don't want that
Close-bodies filled fields in hand-to-hand combat
Battle cats, it's like the sectional speech
Warfare words flashing at cordicy
Compete for an edge, lyrical shots get lit
Don't question my intention when your butt gets kicked

Trying to see what I can't be seeing
I'll be here
(Time for metallic, syllaballic attacks)
Trying to see what I can't be seeing
I'll be here
(Pawned emcees with these lyrical back smacks)

Go ahead
Suit yourself

Why wait?
I shouldn't have told you so

Why wait?

I shouldn't have told you so


Why wait?

I shouldn't have told you so


Why wait?

I shouldn't have told you so


Why wait?

I shouldn't have told you so


Why wait?

I shouldn't have told you so


Why wait?

I shouldn't have told you so


Why wait?

I shouldn't have told you so

 

Trying to see what I can't be seeing


I'll be here
(Time for metallic, syllaballic attacks)
Trying to see what I can't be seeing
I'll be here

(Pawned emcees with these lyrical back smacks)

 

Stick N Move

This is how it's done, going for the title and crown
Renowned emcees surround as the beat breaks down
In 2 elements, collaborating with those that bring the best
And it's the M-I-C the way it ought to be finessed, yes
Yes, am I the one to keep you on your toes?
Most definitely in my b-boy pose
It's the Electric Boogaloo with a slight twist:
Touch your chin to your chest to the rhythm like this

Now I see what I have, I want you
Be with me or stick n' move
Now I see what I had, I want you
Be with me or stick n' move

Emcees dogging me since the first day I grabbed the mic
Now it's like Sit! Stay!
Cobra Kai flystyles I'm kicking
Sticking emcees real quick 'cause times ticking
At the drop of the defense, I let loose a venom
Sending a shot of verbal heat up in them
The ending is done, grab your family and run
Apocalyptic rhyme pattern taking shots at the sun
Record industry rule four-thousand-eighty-one:
Question my intentions and your whole world is done
Like Forrest you'll run, turn your eyeballs into Saturn
Full Metal Jacket, fully auto-rhyme pattern

 

Now I see what I have, I want you
Be with me or stick n' move
Now I see what I had, I want you
Be with me or stick n' move

Stick it, rock your whole clique and I'm wicked,
Move it, moving all the tunes and you groove it


Stick it, rock your whole clique and I'm wicked,

Move it, moving all the tunes and you groove it


Stick it, rock your whole clique and I'm wicked,

Move it, moving all the tunes and you groove it

 

Now I see what I have, I want you
Be with me or stick n' move
Now I see what I had, I want you


Be with me or stick n' move

Don't Stay

Sometimes I
Need to remember just to breathe
Sometimes I
Need you to stay away from me
Sometimes I'm
In disbelief I didn't know
Somehow I
Need you to go

 

Don't stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
What you were changing me into
(Just give me myself back and)
Don't stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
Take all your faithlessness with you
(Just give me myself back and)
Don't stay

Sometimes I
Feel like I trusted you too well
Sometimes I
Just feel like screaming at myself
Sometimes I'm
In disbelief I didn't know
Somehow I
Need to be alone

Don't stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
What you were changing me into
(Just give me myself back and)
Don't stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
Take all your faithlessness with you
(Just give me myself back and)
Don't stay

I don't need you anymore
I don't want to be ignored
I don't need one more day
Of you wasting me away

I don't need you anymore
I don't want to be ignored
I don't need one more day
Of you wasting me away


With no apologies

 


Don't stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
What you were changing me into
(Just give me myself back and)
Don't stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
Take all your faithlessness with you
(Just give me myself back and)

Don't stay

 

Somewhere I Belong

When this began
I had nothing to say
And I'd get lost in the nothingness inside of me
I was confused
And I let it all out to find / that I'm
Not the only person with these things in mind
Inside of me
But all the vacancy the words revealed
Is the only real thing that I've got left to feel
Nothing to lose
Just stuck / Hollow and alone
And the fault is my own
And the fault is my own

I want to heal
I want to feel
What I thought was never real
I want to let go of the pain I've held so long
(Erase all the pain 'til it's gone)
I want to heal
I want to feel
Like I'm close to something real
I want to find something I've wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

And I've got nothing to say
I can't believe I didn't fall right down on my face
I was confused looking everywhere / only to find that it's
Not the way i had imagined it all in my mind
So what am I what do I have but negativity
‘Cause i can't justify the
Way everyone is looking at me
Nothing to lose
Nothing to gain / Hollow and alone
And the fault is my own
The fault is my own

 

I want to heal
I want to feel
What I thought was never real
I want to let go of the pain I've held so long
(Erase all the pain 'til it's gone)
I want to heal
I want to feel
Like I'm close to something real
I want to find something I've wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

I will never know
Myself until I do this on my own
And I will never feel
Anything else until my wounds are healed
I will never be
Anything 'til I break away from me
And I will break away
I'll find myself today

 

I want to heal
I want to feel
What I thought was never real
I want to let go of the pain I've held so long
(Erase all the pain 'til it's gone)
I want to heal
I want to feel
Like I'm close to something real
I want to find something I've wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

I want to heal
I want to feel like
I'm somewhere I belong

 

Somewhere I belong

 

Lying From You

When I pretend
Everything is what I want it to be
I look exactly like what you had always wanted to see
When I pretend
I can't forget about the criminal I am
Stealing second after second just 'cause I know I can / but
I can't pretend this is the way it'll stay / I'm just
Trying to bend the truth
I can't pretend I'm who you want me to be
So I'm

Lying my way from you

(No / No turning back now)
I wanna be pushed aside
So let me go
(No / No turning back now)
Let me take back my life
I'd rather be all alone
(No turning back now)
Anywhere on my own
‘Cause I can see
(No / No turning back now)
The very worst part of you
Is me

I remember what they taught to me
Remember condescending talk of who I ought to be
Remember listening to all of that and this again
So I pretended up a person who was fitting in
And now you think this person really is me and I'm
Trying to bend the truth
But the more I push
The more I'm pulling away
‘Cause I'm

Lying my way from you

 

(No / No turning back now)
I wanna be pushed aside
So let me go
(No / No turning back now)
Let me take back my life
I'd rather be all alone
(No turning back now)
Anywhere on my own
‘Cause I can see
(No / No turning back now)
The very worst part of you

The very worst part of you
Is me

This isn't what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

This isn't what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

This isn't what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

This isn't what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

 

You!

(No / No turning back now)
I wanna be pushed aside
So let me go
(No / No turning back now)
Let me take back my life
I'd rather be all alone
(No turning back now)
Anywhere on my own
‘Cause I can see
(No / No turning back now)

The very worst part of you
The very worst part of you
Is me

 

Hit The Floor

There are just too many
Times that people
Have tried to look inside of me
Wondering what I think of you
When I protect you out of courtesy
Too many times that I've
Held on when I needed to push away
Afraid to say what was on my mind
Afraid to say what I need to say
Too many
Things that you've said about me
When I'm not around
You think having the upper hand
Means you've got to keep putting me down
But I've had too many stand-offs with you
It's about as much as I can stand
So I'm waiting until the upper hand
Is mine

One minute you're on top
The next you're not
Watch it drop
Making your heart stop
Just before you hit the floor
One minute you're on top
The next you're not
Missed your shot
Making your heart stop
You think you won
And then it's all gone


So many people like me
Put so much trust in all your lies
So concerned with what you think
To just say what we feel inside
So many people like me
Walk on eggshells all day long
All I know is that all I want
Is to feel like I'm not stepped on
There are so many things you say
That make me feel like you've crossed the line
What goes up will surely fall
And I'm counting down the time
‘Cause I've had so many stand-offs with you
It's about as much as I can stand
So I'm waiting until the upper hand
Is mine

One minute you're on top
The next you're not
Watch it drop
Making your heart stop
Just before you hit the floor
One minute you're on top
The next you're not
Missed your shot
Making your heart stop
You think you won
And then it's all gone
And then it's all gone
And then it's all gone
And then it's all gone
Now it's all gone


I know I'll never trust a single thing you say
You knew your lies would divide us
But you lied anyway
And all the lies have got you floating
Up above us all
But what goes up has got to fall

One minute you're on top
The next you're not
Watch it drop
Making your heart stop
Just before you hit the floor
One minute you're on top
The next you're not
Missed your shot
Making your heart stop
You think you won
And then it's all gone
And then it's all gone
And then it's all gone
And then it's all gone
Now it's all gone

 

Easier To Run

It's easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It's so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone

Something has been taken
From deep inside of me
A secret I've kept locked away
No one can ever see
Wounds so deep they never show
They never go away
Like moving pictures in my head
For years and years they've played

If I could change I would
Take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could
Stand up and take the blame I would
If I could take all the shame to the grave I would
If I could change I would
Take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could
Stand up and take the blame I would
I would take all my shame to the grave

It's easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It's so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone


Sometimes I remember
The darkness of my past
Bringing back these memories
I wish I didn't have
Sometimes I think of letting go
And never looking back
And never moving forward so
There would never be a past

If I could change I would
Take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could
Stand up and take the blame I would
If I could take all the shame to the grave I would
If I could change I would
Take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could
Stand up and take the blame I would
I would take all my shame to the grave


Just washing it aside
All of the helplessness inside
Pretending I don't feel misplaced
Is so much simpler than change

It's easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It's so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone

It's easier to run
If I could change I would
Take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I've made
It's easier to go
If I could change I would
Take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could
Stand up and take the blame I would
I would take all my shame to the grave

Faint

I am
A Little bit of loneliness
A little bit of disregard
A handful of complaints
But I can't help the fact
That everyone can see these scars
I am
What I want you to want
What I want you to feel
But it's like
No matter what I do
I can't convince you
To just believe this is real
So I let go
Watching you
Turn your back like you always do
Face away and pretend that I'm not
But I'll be here
‘Cause you're all that I got

 

I can't feel
The way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal
This damage anymore
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

I am
A little bit insecure
A little unconfident
‘Cause you don't understand
I do what I can
But sometimes I don't make sense
I am
What you never want to say
But I've never had a doubt
It's like no matter what I do
I can't convince you
For once just to hear me out
So I let go
Watching you
Turn your back like you always do
Face away and pretend that I'm not
But I'll be here
‘Cause you're all that I got

I can't feel
The way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal
This damage anymore
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

No
Hear me out now
You're gonna listen to me
Like it or not
Right now

Hear me out now
You're gonna listen to me
Like it or not
Right now

 

I can't feel

The way I did before

Don't turn your back on me

I won't be ignored

 

I can't feel

The way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal
This damage anymore
Don't turn your back on me

I won't be ignored

 

I can't feel

Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal
Don't turn your back on me

I won't be ignored

 

Figure .09

Nothing ever stops all these thoughts
And the pain attached to them
Sometimes I wonder why this is happening
It's like nothing I can do will distract me when
I think of how I shot myself in the back again
‘Cause from the infinite words I could say / I
Put all the pain you gave to me on display / but didn't
Realize / instead of setting it free / I
Took what I hated and made it a part of me

It never goes away

It never goes away

 

And now
You've become a part of me
You'll always be right here
You've become a part of me
You'll always be my fear
I can't separate myself from what I've done
Giving up a part of me
I've let myself become you

Hearing your name / The memories come back again
I remember when it started happening
I'd see you in every thought I had and then
The thoughts slowly found words attached to them
And I knew as they escaped away I was
Committing myself to them / And every day I
Regret saying those things / 'cause now I see / that I
Took what I hated and made it a part of me

It never goes away

It never goes away

And now
You've become a part of me
You'll always be right here
You've become a part of me
You'll always be my fear
I can't separate myself from what I've done
Giving up a part of me
I've let myself become you

 

It never goes away

It never goes away

It never goes away

It never goes away

Get away from
Me
Gimme my space back / You gotta just
Go
Everything comes down to memories of
You
I've kept it in but now I'm letting you
Know
I've let you go

So, get away from

Me

Gimme my space back / You gotta just
Go
Everything comes down to memories of
You
I've kept it in but now I'm letting you
Know
I've let you go

 

And now
You've become a part of me
You'll always be right here
You've become a part of me
You'll always be my fear
I can't separate myself from what I've done
Giving up a part of me
I've let myself become you

I've let myself become you
I've let myself become lost inside these
Thoughts of you
Giving up a part of me
I've let myself become you

 

Breaking The Habit

Memories consume
Like opening the wound
I'm picking me apart again
You all assume
I'm safe here in my room
Unless I try to start again

I don't want to be the one
The battles always choose
‘Cause inside I realize
That I'm the one confused

I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how I got this way
I know it's not alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
Tonight

Clutching my cure
I tightly lock the door
I try to catch my breath again
I hurt much more
Than anytime before
I had no options left again

 

I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how I got this way
I'll never be alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
Tonight


I'll paint it on the walls
‘Cause I'm the one at fault
I'll never fight again
And this is how it ends

I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
But now I have some clarity
To show you what I mean
I don't know how I got this way
I'll never be alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
Tonight

 

From The Inside

I don't know who to trust
No surprise
(Everyone feels so far away from me)
Heavy thoughts sift through dust
And the lies

Trying not to break
But I'm so tired of this deceit
Every time I try to make myself
Get back up on my feet
All I ever think about is this

(Oh)
All the tiring time between
And how
Trying to put my trust in you
Just takes so much out of me

Take everything from the inside
And throw it all away
‘Cause I swear/ for the last time
I won't trust myself with you

Tension is building inside
Steadily
(Everyone feels so far away from me)
Heavy thoughts forcing their way
Out of me

 

Trying not to break
But I'm so tired of this deceit
Every time I try to make myself
Get back up on my feet
All I ever think about is this

(Oh)
All the tiring time between
And how
Trying to put my trust in you
Just takes so much out of me

 

Take everything from the inside
And throw it all away
‘Cause I swear/ for the last time
I won't trust myself with you

I won't waste myself on you

You

You
Waste myself on you
You

You

 

I'll take everything from the inside

And throw it all away
‘Cause I swear/ for the last time


I won't trust myself with you

Everything from the inside

And just throw it all away
‘Cause I swear/ for the last time

I won't trust myself with you

 

You

You

 

Nobody's Listening

Come / Come / Come / Come

Comin' at you

Come / At you

Come / Comin' at you

 

Yo

Peep the style and the kids checking for it
The number one question is how could you ignore it
We drop right back in the cut
Over basement tracks
With raps that got you backing this up like
[Rewind that]
We're just rolling with the rhythm
Rise from the ashes of stylistic division
With these non-stop lyrics of life living
Not to be forgotten
But still unforgiven
But in the meantime there are those who wanna
Talk this and that / So I suppose
It gets to a that point feelings gotta get hurt
And get dirty with the people spreading the dirt
It goes

Tried to give you warning
But everyone ignores me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody's listening
Called to you so clearly
But you don't want to hear me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody's listening

I got a
Heart full of pain / Head full of stress
Handful of anger / Held in my chest
And everything left's a waste of time
I hate my rhymes
But hate everyone else's more
I'm riding on the back of this pressure
Guessing that it's better
I can't keep myself together
Because all of this stress
Gave me something to write on
The pain gave me something I could set my sights on
You never forget the blood, sweat and tears
The uphill struggle over years
The fear and trash talking
And the people it was to
And the people that started it
Just like you

 

Tried to give you warning
But everyone ignores me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody's listening
Called to you so clearly
But you don't want to hear me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody's listening


I got a
Heart full of pain / Head full of stress
Handful of anger / Held in my chest
Uphill struggle / Blood, sweat and tears
Nothing to gain / Everything to fear

Heart full of pain / Head full of stress
Handful of anger / Held in my chest
Uphill struggle / Blood, sweat and tears
Nothing to gain / Everything to fear

Heart full of pain

(Heart full of pain)

(Heart full of pain)

 

Tried to give you warning
But everyone ignores me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody's listening
Called to you so clearly
But you don't want to hear me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody's listening

 

I got a
Heart full of pain / Head full of stress

Nobody's listening
Handful of anger / Held in my chest

Nobody's listening
Uphill struggle / Blood sweat and tears

Nobody's listening
Nothing to gain / Everything to fear

Nobody's listening

 

 

Come

Come / Come / Come / Come

Comin' at you

Come / Comin' / Comin' / Comin' / Comin' at you

Come / Comin' / Come / Come / Comin' at you

Come / Come / Comin'

(Coming at you from every side)

 

Numb

I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless
Lost under the surface
I don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure
Of walking in your shoes

(Caught in the undertow / Just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you

(Caught in the undertow / Just caught in the undertow)

I've become so numb
I can't feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
I'm becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you

Can't you see that you're smothering me
Holding too tightly
Afraid to lose control
‘Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you

(Caught in the undertow / Just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow / Just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take

 

I've become so numb
I can't feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
I'm becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you

But I know
I may end up failing too
But I know
You were just like me
With someone disappointed in you

 

I've become so numb
I can't feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
I'm becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me

And be less like you

 

I've become so numb

I can't feel you there

(I'm tired of being what you want me to be)

I've become so numb

I can't feel you there

(I'm tired of being what you want me to be)

 

Faint Demo

Back, before I said goodbye
Just as the first day turned to night
Just as the concrete turned to dust
And the steel turned into rust
All I could think was a new way to dig through the damage
Couldn't think of a way to get through this
Now I see you taking advantage
And I found another reason to do this
I'm digging us a hole to travel through
I wanna find a way to rattle you
You wanna try to hear the thunder hit
You're gonna have to follow me under it
Let go, its begun
Close your eyes, I'm not done
Breath the word, Waste your breath
And keep it up 'til there's nothing left

Now that I said goodbye
Just as the darkness turned to light
Just as the next light turns to day
And the world gets under way
All I can see is the answer to the patient waiting to take this out on the wind of the raindrops
And I waited patiently taking it in
Ready for the first of the face-offs
I'm digging us a hole to travel through
I wanna find a way to rattle you
You wanna try to hear the thunder hit
You're gonna have to follow me under it
Let go, its begun
Close your eyes, I'm not done
Breath the word, Waste your breath
And keep it up 'til there's nothing left

I'm digging us a hole to travel through
I wanna find a way to rattle you
You wanna try to hear the thunder hit
You're gonna have to follow me under it

I'm digging us a hole to travel through
I wanna find a way to rattle you
You wanna try to hear the thunder hit
You're gonna have to follow me under it
I'm digging us a hole to travel through
I wanna find a way to rattle you
You wanna try to hear the thunder hit
You're gonna have to follow me under it
Let go, its begun
Close your eyes, I'm not done
Breath the word, Waste your breath
And keep it up 'til there's nothing left

 

No!

 

Figure .09 Demo

All these things I could not say,
Made me so much more afraid.
Just too scared of what I'd find,
to look behind, to look behind.

All these things I could not say,
made me so much more afraid.
Just too scared of what I'd find,
to look behind, to look behind.

If you go, there's no turning back.
If you go, there's no turning back.
If you go, there's no turning back.
there's no turning back!

No, no, no, no, no, no...
NOOOOO!
NO TURNING BACK!
NOOOOO!
NO TURNING BACK!
NOOOOO!
NO TURNING BACK!
NOOOOO!
NO TURNING BACK!

All these things I could not say,
made me so much more afraid.
Just too scared of what I'd find,
to look behind.

All of these things I could not say,
made me so much more afraid.
Just too scared of what I'd find,
to look behind, CAN'T LOOK BEHIND!

 

Breaking The Habit Demo

Down on the floor
Back behind the door
I try to catch my breath again
I can't ignore
What's back behind the door
Wondering what's next again

I can say that you're the one
The battles always choose
But sometimes I realize
That I'm the one confused

I don't know what we're fighting for
Or why we have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how we got this way
I know it's not alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
Tonight

Memories consume, pacing in the room
Cleaning broken glass again
Suddenly soon, you're leaving from the room
It's happening so fast again

I can say that you're the one
The battles always choose
But sometimes I realize
That I'm the one confused

I don't know what we're fighting for
Or why we have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how we got this way
I know it's not alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
Tonight

Crashing into walls
It never was your fault
So here we are again
And this is how it ends

I don't know what we're fighting for
Or why we have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how we got this way
I know it's not alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
Tonight

 

Nobody's Listening (Green Lantern Remix)

Let's go! Yeah! Green Lantern
Mike Shinoda
Aiyo, Green, tell 'em what the name of the mixtape is. Ha-ha!
("Fort Minor: We Major") Let's go!

Yeah, peep the style and the kids checkin' for it
The number one question is "How could you ignore it?"
We drop right back in the cut
The Evil Genius track and Mike's raps got you backin' this up
Like rewind that, just rollin with the rhythm
Rise from the ashes of stylistic division
With these non-stop, lyrics of life livin
Not to be forgotten but still unforgivin
But in the meantime there are those
who wanna talk this and that, so I suppose
Gets to a point, feelings gotta get hurt
And get dirty with the people spreadin the dirt
It's like...

Tried to give you warning but everyone ignores me
I told you niggas nine or ten times to stop fuckin' with me
But nobody's listening
Called to you so clearly but you don't want to hear me
I told you niggas nine or ten times to stop fuckin' with me
But nobody's listening

I got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
Handful of anger held in my chest
And everything left's a waste of time
I hate my rhymes, but hate everyone else's more
I'm ridin' on the back of this pressure
Guessin' that it's better I can't keep myself together
'Cause all of this stress gave me somethin to write on
Pain gave me somethin I could set my sights on
You never forget the blood, sweat and tears
The uphill struggle over years, the fear and
Trash talkin' and the people it was to
What up to the Militia and the LPU, ha ha

C'mon homie we major; we major, c'mon

Let's go!

 

Standing In The Middle

I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it, middle of it

Yo, y'all better wake up; you think we don't see y'all drifting?
Sleeping on the job and forgetting your position? (position)
Sit straight and listen; what you are missing
I cook up a batch, hot straight out the kitchen
No indecision, I spit right
Heavy as a fist fight
No gloves and no masks
No pain and no slack
No way to look back
Nobody to say I can't make my own path
Cause the way that y'all act, I wanna break something
Comin' at me like the pain I feel means nothing
Comin' from a place where you can't relate
Where every word from your face comes across as fake
And I can hardly take the way that y'all treat us
Sending this out to anyone who won't believe us
Spelling it out so y'all know the deal
And if you can't feel it, maybe you can't feel

I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
Man, who are you?
I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
What are you saying?
I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
What are you writing?
I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
Man, who are you?

(Tell ‘em, Motion)
Eat your words
Say what you used to say and act how you used to act
Every time you heard my occupation was a rap attack (rap attack)
My conversation's stacked, I switch my defense on you
Every time you want to get deep you'll see my knuckle package
Born to die, ferocious emcee make you go back and write your rhymes
My style chokes up like a little league baseball player
It moves, I'm strangling as I'm swinging as main mangler
I wanna dee-four, poach you as your seafood is cee-four
I'm gonna rap and you still knee-high
Y'all wanna train with me, guy?
Man, it's destructive
Man, it's like jabs from boxing champ Lennox
Perfect for your head, I'll fit it like New Era hats
That top off suits, B-boy etiquette
Express myself with my hang-side
Then I extend one finger, the middle fucking

 

I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
Man, who are you?
I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
What are you saying?
I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
What are you writing?
I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
Man, who are you?

Yo, Motion (Yeah?)
Sometimes I feel it's like nothing that I ever do is ever good enough (For real?)
Like I should stop and go back to L.A.
Back away where I know I won't be seen
And nobody's gonna critique the music that I make
And mistake me for some fucking kid with a backpack
Rapping on a track just to make a buck
For a mix-tape that sucks
And dee-jays that don't get it
But I been down that road and I know
People don't wanna go where I might go
Don't wanna know what it's like
To step outside your zone with a mic
Just controlling the hype
And if we need to take shots from them
And be stopped by them just to make these ends
Then so be it, I will not hold my breath
I'm gonna spit ‘til I got none left
Motion, where you at?

 

I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
Man, who are you?
I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
What are you saying?
I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
What are you writing?
I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
Man, who are you?

I'm standing in the middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it
Middle of it

 

If someone could take a look at Nobody's Listening when they get a chance and help me in figuring out how to transcribe the scratched/effected vocal samples, that'd be really nice and helpful.

MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT

Wake

 

 

 

 

Given Up (album)

 

Wake in a sweat again
Another day's been laid to waste
In my disgrace
Stuck in my head again
Feels like I'll never leave this place
There's no escape
I'm my own worst enemy

I've given up

I'm sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say
Take this all away

I'm suffocating
Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me

I don't know what to take
Thought I was focused but I'm scared
I'm not prepared
I hyperventilate
Looking for help somehow somewhere
And no one cares
I'm my own worst enemy

I've given up

I'm sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say
Take this all away

I'm suffocating
Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me

God!
Put me out of my misery
Put me out of my misery
Put me out of my
Put me out of my fucking misery

I've given up

I'm sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say
Take this all away

I'm suffocating
Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me

 

 

Given Up (booklet)

 

Wake in a sweat again
Another day's been laid to waste
In my disgrace
Stuck in my head again
Feels like I'll never leave this place
There's no escape
I'm my own worst enemy

I've given up

I'm sick of living
Is there nothing you can say
Take this all away

I'm suffocating
Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me

I don't know what to take
Thought I was focused but I'm scared
I'm not prepared
I hyperventilate
Looking for help somehow somewhere
And you don't care
I'm my own worst enemy

Put me out of my misery

 

 

Leave Out All The Rest

 

 

I dreamed I was missing
You were so scared
But no one would listen
Cause no one else cared
After my dreaming
I woke with this fear
What am I leaving
When I'm done here
So if you're asking me I want you to know

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
And don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Don't be afraid
I've taken my beating
I've shared what I made
I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you
So if you're asking me I want you to know

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
And don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting / All the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well
Pretending / Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
And don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting / All the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well
Pretending / Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are
I can't be who you are

 

 

Bleed It Out (album)

 

Yeah / Here we go for the hundredth time
Hand grenade pins in every line
Throw 'em up and let something shine
Going out of my fucking mind
Filthy mouth / no excuse
Find a new place to hang this noose
String me up from atop these roofs
Knot it tight so I won't get loose
Truth is / You can stop and stare
Bled myself out and no one cares
Dug the trench out / Laid down there
With a shovel up out of reach somewhere
Yeah / Someone pour it in
Make it a dirt dance floor again
Say your prayers and stomp it out
When they bring that chorus in

I bleed it out
Digging deeper just to throw it away
I bleed it out
Digging deeper just to throw it away
I bleed it out
Digging deeper just to throw it away
Just to throw it away

Just to throw it away

I bleed it out / Go / Stop the show
Choppy words and a sloppy flow
Shotgun, opera, lock and load
Cock it back and then watch it go
Mama help me / I've been cursed
Death is rollin' in every verse
Candy paint on his brand new hearse
Can't contain him / He knows he works
Fuck this hurts / I won't lie / Doesn't matter how hard I try
Half the words don't mean a thing and I know I won't be satisfied
So why try ignoring him
Make it a dirt dance floor again
Say your prayers and stomp it out
When they bring that chorus in

I bleed it out digging deeper just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper just to throw it away
Just to throw it away

Just to throw it away

I bleed it out

I've opened up these scars
I'll make you face this
I've pulled myself so far
I'll make you face this now

I bleed it out
Digging deeper just to throw it away
I bleed it out
Digging deeper just to throw it away
I bleed it out
Digging deeper just to throw it away
Just to throw it away

Just to throw it away

I bleed it out

Digging deeper just to throw it away
I bleed it out
Digging deeper just to throw it away

I bleed it out
Digging deeper just to throw it away

Just to throw it away

Just to throw it away

I bleed it out
I bleed it out
I bleed it out

I'll make you face this now

 

 

Shadow Of The Day

 

I close both locks below the window
I close both blinds and turn away
Sometimes solutions aren't so simple
Sometimes goodbye's the only way

And the sun will set for you
The sun will set for you
And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey
And the sun will set for you

In cards and flowers on your window
Your friends all plead for you to stay
Sometimes beginnings aren't so simple
Sometimes goodbye's the only way

Ah ah ah

And the sun will set for you
The sun will set for you
And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey
And the sun will set for you

And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey
And the sun will set for you

And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey
And the sun will set for you

 

 

What I've Done

 

In this farewell
There's no blood
There's no alibi
Cause I've drawn regret
From the truth
Of a thousand lies
So let mercy come
And wash away

What I've done
I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become
Erase myself
And let go of what I've done

Put to rest
What you thought of me
While I clean this slate
With the hands
Of uncertainty
So let mercy come
And wash away

What I've done
I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become
Erase myself
And let go of what I've done

For what I've done
I start again
And whatever pain may come
Today this ends
I'm forgiving what I've done

I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become
Erase myself
And let go of what I've done

 

Na na na

Na na na

Na na na

What I've done

 

Na na na

Na na na

Na na na
Forgiving what I've done

 

Na na na

Na na na

Na na na

Hands Held High (album)

 

Turn my

Mic up louder I got to say something
Lightweights step it aside when we come in
Feel it in your chest / The syllables get pumping
People on the street they panic and start running
Words on loose leaf sheet complete coming
I jump in my mind and summon the rhyme I'm dumping
Healing the blind I promise to let the sun in
Sick of the dark ways we march to the drum and
Jump when they tell us that they wanna see jumping
Fuck that / I wanna see some fists pumping
Risk something / Take back what's yours
Say something that you know they might attack you for
Cause I'm sick of being treated like I have before
Like it's stupid standing for what I'm standing for
Like this war's really just a different brand of war
Like it doesn't cater to rich and abandon poor
Like they understand you in the back of the jet / When you

Can't put gas in your tank / And these fuckers are
Laughing their way to the bank / And cashing their check
Asking you to have compassion / And have some respect
For a leader so nervous in an obvious way
Stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay
And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
In the living room laughing like

What did he say

Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen

In my living room watching it / I am not laughing / Cause
When it gets tense I know what might happen
World is cold / The bold men take action
Have to react or get blown into fractions
Ten years old / It's something to see / Another
Kid my age drugged under a Jeep
Taken and bound / And found later under a tree
I wonder if he had thought the next one could be me
Do you see / The soldiers / They're out today they
Brush the dust from bulletproof vests away
It's ironic / At times like this you pray
But a bomb blew the mosque up yesterday
There's bombs on the buses / Bikes / Roads
Inside your market / Your shops / Your clothes / My dad
He's got a lot of fear I know
But enough pride inside not to let that show
My brother had a book he would hold with pride
A little red cover with a broken spine

On the back / He hand wrote a quote inside:
"When the rich wage war it's the poor who die"
Meanwhile / The leader just talks away
Stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay
The rest of the world watching at the end of the day
Both scared and angry like

What did he say

Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen

With hands held high into a sky so blue

Amen
As the ocean opens up to swallow you

Amen

With hands held high into a sky so blue

Amen

As the ocean opens up to swallow you

Amen

With hands held high into a sky so blue

Amen

As the ocean opens up to swallow you

Amen

With hands held high into a sky so blue

Amen

As the ocean opens up to swallow you

Amen

With hands held high into a sky so blue

Amen

As the ocean opens up to swallow you

Amen

With hands held high into a sky so blue

Amen

As the ocean opens up to swallow you

No More Sorrow (album)

 

Are you lost / In your lies
Do you tell to yourself I don't realize
Your crusade's a disguise
Replaced freedom with fear / You trade money for lives
I'm aware of what you've done

No / no more sorrow
I've paid for your mistakes
Your / Time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced

I see pain / I see need
I see liars and thieves abuse power with greed
I had hope / I believed
But I'm beginning to think that I've been decieved
You will pay for what you've done

No / No more sorrow
I've paid for your mistakes
Your / Time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced

Thieves and hypocrites
Thieves and hypocrites
Thieves and hypocrites

No / No more sorrow
I've paid for your mistakes
Your / Time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced

No more sorrow
I've paid for your mistakes
Your / Time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced
Your time has come to be replaced
Your time has come to be erased

Valentine's Day (album)

 

My insides all turn to ash / So slow
And blew away as I collapsed / So Cold
A black wind took them away / From sight
And held the darkness over day / That night

And the clouds above move closer
Looking so dissatisfied
But the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

I used to be my own protection / But not now
Cause my path has lost direction / Somehow
A black wind took you away / From sight
And held the darkness over day / That night

And the clouds above move closer
Looking so dissatisfied
And the ground below grew colder
As they put you down inside
But the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

So now you're gone
And I was wrong
I never knew what it was like
To be alone

On a valentine's day
On a valentine's day
On a valentine's day
On a valentine's day

 

On a valentine's day
I used to be my own protection

On a valentine's day

But not now

On a valentine's day

Because my mind has lost direction

On a valentine's day

Somehow

 

On a valentine's day
I used to be my own protection

On a valentine's day

But not now

On a valentine's day

Because my mind has lost direction

On a valentine's day

Somehow

In Between

 

Let me apologize to begin with
Let me apologize for what I'm about to say
But trying to be genuine

Was harder than it seemed
And somehow I got caught up in between

Let me apologize to begin with
Let me apologize for what I'm about to say
But trying to be someone else

Was harder than it seemed
And somehow I got caught up in between

Between my pride and my promise
Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
The things I want to say to you

Get lost before they come
The only thing that's worse than one is none

Let me apologize to begin with
Let me apologize for what I'm about to say
But trying to regain your trust
Was harder than it seemed
And somehow I got caught up in between

Between my pride and my promise
Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
The things I want to say to you

Get lost before they come
The only thing that's worse than one is none
The only thing that's worse than one is none

And I cannot explain to you
In anything I say or do or plan
Fear is not afraid of you
But guilt's a language you can understand
I cannot explain to you
In anything I say or do
But hope the actions speak the words they can

For my pride and my promise
For my lies and how the truth gets in the way
The things I want to say to you
Get lost before they come
The only thing that's worse than one is

Pride and my promise
Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
The things I want to say to you
Get lost before they come
The only thing that's worse than one is none
The only thing that's worse than one is none
The only thing that's worse than one is none

 

 

In Pieces (album)

 

Telling me to go
But hands beg me to stay
Your lips say that you love
Your eyes say that you hate

There's truth in your lies
Doubt in your faith
What you build you lay to waste
There's truth in your lies
Doubt in your faith
All I've got's what you didn't take

So I / I won't be the one
Be the one to leave this
In pieces
And you / You will be alone
Alone with all your secrets
And regrets
Don't lie

You promise me the sky
Then toss me like a stone
You wrap me in your arms
And chill me to the bone

There's truth in your lies
Doubt in your faith
All I've got's what you didn't take

So I / I won't be the one
Be the one to leave this
In pieces
And you / You will be alone
Alone with all your secrets
And regrets
Don't lie

So I / I won't be the one
Be the one to leave this
In pieces
And you / You will be alone
Alone with all your secrets
And regrets
Don't lie

The Little Things Give You Away

 

Water gray

Through the windows

Up the stairs
Chilling rain

Like an ocean

Everywhere

Don't wanna reach for me do you
I mean nothing to you

The little things give you away
And now there will be no mistaking
The levees are breaking

All you've ever wanted
Was someone to truly look up to you
And six feet / Underwater

I do

Hope decays
Generations disappear
Washed away
As a nation simply stares

Don't wanna reach for me do you
I mean nothing to you

The little things give you away
But now there will be no mistaking
The levees are breaking

All you've ever wanted (All you wanted)
Was someone to truly look up to you (Uh uh)
And six feet / Underwater (Six feet underwater)

I do (I do)

All you've ever wanted (All you wanted)
Was someone to truly look up to you (Uh uh)
And six feet underground now I (Six feet underground now I)
Now I do (Now I do)

Oh oh oh oh

Oh oh (repeat a lot)

 

Little things give you away

Little things give you away

Little things give you away

Little things give you away

 

Little things give you away
All you've ever wanted

Little things give you away

Was someone to truly look up to you

Little things give you away

All you've ever wanted

Little things give you away

Was someone to truly look up to you

Little things give you away

All you've ever wanted

Little things give you away

Was someone to truly look up to you

Little things give you away

All you've ever wanted

Little things give you away

Was someone to truly look up to you

Little things give you away

All you've ever wanted

Little things give you away

Was someone to truly look up to you

Little things give you away

All you've ever wanted

Little things give you away

Was someone to truly look up to you

 

 

No Roads Left

 

Standing alone with no direction
How did I fall so far behind
Why am I searching for perfection
Knowing it's something I won't find

In my fear and flaws
I let myself down again
All because

I run / 'til the silence splits me open
I run / 'til It puts me underground
'Til I have no breath

And no roads left but one

When did I lose my sense of purpose
Can I regain what's lost inside
Why do I feel like I deserve this
Why does my pain look like my pride

Oh oh

 

In my fear and flaws
I let myself down again
All because
I let myself down
In my fear and flaws

I run / 'til the silence splits me open
I run / 'til it puts me underground
'Til I have no breath

And no roads left but one
No roads left but one

In my fear and flaws
I let myself down again
All because

I run / And the silence splits me open
I run / And it puts me underground
But there's no regret

And no roads left to run

Your lies

Augh

 

Yeah

I didn't think that I had a debt to pay
'Til they came to take what I had left away
You said you wouldn't put me to the test today
But I remember you saying that yesterday
There was a time when your mind wasn't out of control
Every memory a confession pouring out of your soul
Like a pill you couldn't swallow so it swallowed you whole
Another lie hard to follow til it followed you home
And like that

Broken down
A victim of your
Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You don't know
Why / You crossed the line
Wrapped up inside your
Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You're lost inside that cold disguise
Behind your lies

I don't know what I thought I might say
Seems like we never were taught the right way
Every other minute I fought for my place
And dropped what I made and thought you might stay so
I'm guessing that you probably know
When your inside's hollow then you ought to be cold
Like a pill I couldn't swallow, when it swallowed me whole
Another lie hard to follow, it followed me home

Like that

 

Broken down
A victim of your
Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You don't know
Why / You crossed the line
Wrapped up inside your
Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You're lost inside that cold disguise
Behind your lies

 

Oh
You're faking, you're mistaken
If you think that you can climb out of this hole
Forsaking what we take when
All our lies come from the power of control

Broken down
A victim of your

Lies / You hide behind

Lies / You don't know

Why / You hide behind

Lies / You don't know

Why / You hide behind

Lies / You don't know

Why / You hide behind

Wrapped up inside your

 

Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You don't know
Why / You crossed the line
Wrapped up inside your
Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You're lost inside that cold disguise
Behind your lies

Like a pill you couldn't swallow so it swallowed you whole
Another lie, hard to follow til it followed you home
And like that

Broken down
A victim of your
Lies
Lies so out of control
Every memory a confession pouring out of your soul
And like that


Broken down
A victim of your
Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You don't know
Why / You crossed the line
Wrapped up inside your
Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You're lost inside that cold disguise
Behind your lies

I don't know what I thought I might say
Seems like we never were taught the right way
Every other minute I fought for my place
And dropped what I made and thought you might stay so
I'm guessing that you probably know
When your inside's hollow then you ought to be cold
Like a pill hard to swallow, so it swallowed you whole
Another lie hard to follow, it followed you home
And like that

Broken down
A victim of your
Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You don't know
Why / You crossed the line
Wrapped up inside your
Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You're lost inside that cold disguise
Behind your lies

You're faking, you're mistaken
If you think that you can climb out of this hole
Forsaking what we take when
All our lies come from the power of control

Broken down
A victim of your
You're faking, you're mistaken
If you think that you can climb out of this hole


Broken down
A victim of your
Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You don't know
Why / You hide behind
Lies / You don't know
Why / You hide behind
Lies / You don't know
Why / You hide behind
Wrapped up inside your

Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You don't know
Why / You crossed the line
Wrapped up inside your
Lies / You hide behind
Lies / You're lost inside that cold disguise
Behind your lies

 

 

Reading My Eyes (Live)

 

The microphone molester / machete undresser
“Stupid-dope-fresh” type shit resurrector
Top gun / miramar / best of the best-er
The leave-an-MC-peace-in-rest-er
Skill tester / the flex-the-gunner
The make-funner / the adversary make runner
Make summer cold with rhymes i spit
Kick gift to lifted delinquent wit
I be the prophet / my rhyme-top it? stop it
Fly like rocket when I rock it
Lock it down with this perverse verse
Every fuckin curse a burst of hurt
Move crowds: physical fitness rhymes
Coke heads couldn't do my lines
I'm decorated like Christmas pines
My battalion rocks
MCs become silhouettes of chalk

Reading my eyes will say it in many ways
Losing my pride will save it in many days

Hit the dirt because the words I spit will
Do more than just rip your shirt
I'll bitch slap your soul
Contact the track control
You coming at me? You can't hack it though
So ridiculous
Watching my crew get sick of this
Wickedness
Pitchin' this
Lyrical viciousness to crews and cliques
Made of men and mistresses
This is my life
The twilight in the fight night
And trying to see nothing but the highlights
When I write
These eyes on horizons
Die for my song
Cry rhymes in krylon
Fire on / move men telekenetically
Esoterically beat-speaking with clarity
Feel my verity / heroism of heresy
And sever every MC I see with severity

Reading my eyes will say it in many ways
Losing my pride will save it in many days

 

Why not

What I came

Why not

What I came
Why not

What I came
Why not give me what I came to deserve
Why not give me what I came to believe

Why not give me what I came to deserve

Why not give me what I came to believe

 

Why?

 

Reading my eyes will say it in many ways

Losing my pride will save it in many days

Fear

 

Looked in the ocean
Looked in the sea
Found her often
Watching for me
Left the door open
Left the door wide
As she often
Kept it inside

And if you're badder than fact phone z
Phend it back to me
Sitting front pitter badder than b
Even badder than phint to phone badder
Than the patter in friends
Who gutter the prat
The friday on the patter you plumped
You're getting thrown even badder than bomb
Don't trust
And if you don't then you're fighting for what

We're fighting for a place
We can call home
Looking for a way
Not to be alone

Fighting for a place
We can call home
Looking for a way
Not to be alone
Not to be alone

Across The Line

 

In this desert / In darkness
Lying with the gun across his chest
Pretending / He's heartless
As the fire flashes in the sky
He was fragile / And frozen
When the bullet took away his friend
But now he's somehow / More broken

He's pulling his weapon to his side
Loading it full of his goodbyes
Holding an enemy across the line
He's pulling his weapon to his side
Loading it full of his goodbyes
Holding an enemy across the line

Sweating / And shaking
Lying with her hands across her chest
She wakes with / Her cravings
As the fire flashes in her eye
She was fragile / And frozen
When the needle took away her friend
But now she's somehow / More broken

She's pulling her weapon to her side
Loading it full of her goodbyes
Holding an enemy across the line
She's pulling her weapon to her side
Loading it full of her goodbyes
Holding an enemy across the line

With every battle he's choosing
With every fight he's losing
His enemy is not far behind
With every promise she's broken
With every lie she's spoken
Her enemy is not far behind

It's your time
It's your time
It's your time
It's / Your / TIME

He's pulling his weapon to his side
Loading it full of his goodbyes
Holding an enemy across the line
She's pulling her weapon to his side
Loading it full of her goodbyes
Holding an enemy across the line

With every battle he's choosing
With every fight he's losing
His enemy is not far behind
With every promise she's broken
With every lie she's spoken
Her enemy is not far behind

What We Don’t Know

 

If everything would just stop
Then maybe I could collect my thoughts
If everything would stand still
I could've hidden how lost I feel
I should've said what I hear
I should've let myself fear
I should've made myself clear

So this is how we fall apart
This is how the ending starts
And when we find we've lost our mark
We fake what we don't know

I never asked to let go
I never thought I could sink so low
I never let myself down
Until the second I did right now
I should've said what I hear
I should've let myself fear
I should've made myself clear

So this is how we fall apart
This is how the ending starts
And when we find we've lost our mark
We fake what we don't know
This is how we fall apart
This is how the ending starts
Cause when our heads betray our hearts
We fake what we don't know

Cause all we are is everything we've done
All we are is how quickly we run
And all we are
We are

This is how we fall apart
But this is how beginnings start
Cause when our heads betray our hearts
We fake what we don't know
And if our doubt begins again
The answers find us in the end
So in the meantime we'll pretend
And fake what we don't know

This is how we fall apart
But this is how beginnings start
Cause when our heads betray our hearts
We fake what we don't know
And if our doubt begins again
The answers find us in the end
So in the meantime we'll pretend
And fake what we don't know

 

 

Pretend To Be

 

You say that you're proud of me (Oh Oh, Oh Oh, Oh Oh)
Then you take something out of me
So predictable
Why do I have to see this through
Why do I have to take this
Isn't there something I can do
To make myself finally say this

No / You've taken this too far
Exposing who you are / For all to see
You're not the one that you pretend to be

You start with apologies (Oh Oh, Oh Oh, Oh Oh)
Then take another shot at me
So predictable
Why do I have to see this through
Why do I have to take this
Isn't there something I can do
To make myself finally say this

No / You've taken this too far
Exposing who you are / For all to see
You're not the one that you pretend / This

No / You've taken this too far
Exposing who you are / For all to see
You're not the one that you pretend to be

 

Oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh

 

No / You've taken this too far
Exposing who you are / For all to see
You're not the one that you pretend / This

 

No / You've taken this too far
Exposing who you are / For all to see
You're not the one that you pretend to be

 

 

What I’ve Done (M.Shinoda Remix)

 

In this farewell
There's no blood
There's no alibi
Cause I've drawn regret
From the truth
Of a thousand lies
So let mercy come
And wash away

What I've done
I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become
Erase myself
And let go of what I've done

Put to rest
What you thought of me
While I clean this slate
With the hands
Of uncertainty
So let mercy come
And wash away

What I've done
I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become
Erase myself
And let go of what I've done

For what I've done
I'll start again
And whatever pain may come
Today this ends
I'm forgiving what I've done

 

I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become
Erase myself
And let go of what I've done
What I've done

 

Na na na

Na na na

Na na na

Na na na

Done

Na na na

Na na na

Na na na
What I've done

 

 

 

 

LP UNDERGROUND 12

Asbestos

 

Don't start with the ugly part

Don't end with the things that will make them want to walk away
Tune in at the din again

Another price ain't cheap but somebody's gonna have to pay
Oh yes, you can only guess

What it is, what it was, don't remember what I had in mind
Shotgunning on a joy ride, coming down the block, half-cocked nearly half the time

Give it back

Give it back

Give it back

Give it back / Sing it

One time for the words divine

And two times for the things that you hope you never have to say
Three scenes in a dead man's dream

And the girls tell the boys that they better fucking run away
Live it up, or g-g-give it up

Turn it up, tune it out, let it rhyme with the other line
Shotgunning on a joy ride, coming down the block, half-cocked nearly all the time

Give it back

Give it back

Give it back

Give it back / Sing it

 

 

Debris

 

Listen
My blood feels like it's sitting still in my veins
My motivation was gone before it even came
Today and yesterday, they both seem the same
And no matter how I try I just can't change
Give me one reason I should go outside
Everything will be the same no matter what I try
Some people will live and some people will die
Some people will build their whole life on a lie
I used to blame you for the things that I thought you'd say
So now I can't blame you for going away
Cause these memories are the blood beating under my skin
Repeating the same thoughts again and again

Again and again
(You said we couldn't last long enough or be strong enough)
Again and again
(You said our voices weren't loud enough but we've had enough because)
We want our future back
We want our own mistakes
To take our own path
We wanna do it again

Again and again
(You said we couldn't last long enough or be strong enough)
Again and again
(You said our voices weren't loud enough but we've had enough because)
We want our future back
We want our own mistakes
To take our own path
We wanna do it again

Again and again
(You said we couldn't last long enough or be strong enough)
Again and again
(You said our voices weren't loud enough but we've had enough because)
We want our future back
We want our own mistakes
To take our own path
We wanna do it again and again
(You said we couldn't last long enough or be strong enough)
Again and again
(You said our voices weren't loud enough but we've had enough because)
We want our future back
We want our own mistakes
To take our own path
We wanna do it again

Little Boxes

 

Little boxes on the hillside
Little boxes made of ticky tacky
Little boxes on the hillside
Little boxes all the same
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they're all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same

And the people in the houses
All went to the university
Where they were put in boxes
And they came out all the same
And there's doctors and lawyers
And business executives
And they're all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same

 

 

L.O.A.T.R. (M.Shinoda Remix)

 

 

Who you are

You are

Come and save me from myself

Come and save me from myself

I can't be who you are

I can't be who you are

 

I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you

 

I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you

 

I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you

 

I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you

 

But neither have you

But neither have you

But neither have you

But neither have you

But neither have you

But neither have you

 

But neither have you

But neither have you

But neither have you

But neither have you

 

Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

(But neither have you)

Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

(But neither have you)

Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

(But neither have you)

Leave out all the rest

 

 

 

We Made It

 

Together we made it
We made it, even though we had our backs up against the wall

See it niggas I survived the worst but my life is glorious
But I know that I live to be hurdled when I'm so victorious
Take a look I'm a symbol of greatness now call it Morpheus
As force accumulated the wind and but a believe I'm so notorious
You know I've been buying my bread even though we rapping now (yes)
And now when you look on my trip and you a nigga higher level tramping now
And you see that everyone on my middle struggers and
For your ass is never been an option
A nigga paper long like we was on the trap and the hood choppin
Get it!

Together we made it (You see we did it, niggas!)
We made it even though we had our backs up against the wall (C'mon!)
Forever we waited *Ha-ha!*
And they told us we were never going to get it
But we took it on the road (Through the riches)
On the road (Through the ghetto)
On the road (And the projects to this bangin instrumental)
On the road (Ride with me) *yeah, yeah*
On the road (You come and get it) *yeah, yeah*
On the road *yeah, yeah, yeah, yo!*

When it all got started we were steadily just getting rejected
And it seemed like nothing we could do would ever get us respected
At best we were stressed at the worst they probably said we're pathetic
Had all the pieces to that puzzle just no way to connect it
I was fighting through every rhyme tightening up every line
Never resting to question if I was out of my mind
It finally came time to do it or let it die
So put the chips on the table and told 'em to let it ride
Sing it! Yeah!

 

Oh, woah
Together we made it (You see we did it, niggas!)
We made it even though we had our backs up against the wall (C'mon!)
Forever we waited *Ha-ha!*
And they told us we were never going to get it
But we took it on the road (Through the riches)
On the road (Through the ghetto)
On the road (And the projects to this bangin instrumental)
On the road (Ride with me)
On the road (You come and get it)
On the road

Look in case you misunderstanded exactly what I'm building
Is shit that I could live for my children's (children's) children's (children)
Now I only wake up a smile to see how far I've come
Fighting for sales on a strip to get hustle from
From nights in jail on a bench using my muscles son
To count money like Dre, and Jimmy or Russell Ones (Yeah, nigga!)
But now I live when I dream you see me finally getting it
Let's make a toast to the hustle regardless how we get it
Sing it!

 

Oh, woah

Together we made it

But I know that I live to be hurdled / When I'm so victorious
Take a look / I'm a symbol of greatness now you call me Morpheus
As force accumulated the wind / Better believe I'm so notorious
You know that I've been buyin' my bread even though we rapping now (yes)
And used to live on the strip even though we should be higher level tramping now
Superceded everyone of my little struggles and
Failure have never ever been an option (trust)
You see my paper long like we was on the trap and we bout ta take the hood shoppin'
Get it!

Not Alone

 

I break down / Fear is sinking in
The cold comes / Racing through my skin
Searching for / A way to get to you
Through the storm / You

Go / Giving up your home
Go / Leaving all you've known
You are not alone

With arms up / Stretched into the sky
With eyes like / Echoes in the night
Hiding from / The hell that you've been through
Silent one / You

Go / Giving up your home
Go / Leaving all you've known
You / Go / Giving up your home
Go / Leaving all you've known
You are not alone

You / Go / Giving up your home
Go / Leaving all you've known
And you / Go / Giving up your home
Go / You are not unknown
You are not alone

You are not unknown

Oh oh oh

You are not alone

Robert J Oppenheimer: "We knew world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita.
Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form, and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'
I suppose we all thought that, one way or another."

 

 

 

Burning In The Skies

 

 

I used the deadwood to make the fire rise
The blood of innocence burning in the skies
I filled my cup with the rising of the sea
And poured it out in an ocean of debris
Oh
I'm swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
What I don't deserve
We held our breath when the clouds began to form
But you were lost in the beating of the storm
And in the end we were made to be apart
Like separate chambers of the human heart
Oh
I'm swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
It's in the blackened bones / of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
What I don't deserve
Oh, woah, oh, oh
Oh
I'm swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
The blame is mine alone / for bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
What I don't deserve
What I don't deserve, oh, woah
What I don't deserve
I used the deadwood to make the fire rise
The blood of innocence burning in the skies

 

 

 

Empty Spaces

 

 

Soldier: "Ten-hut!"

[spanish yelling]

 

 

 

When They Come For Me

 

 

Yeah

 

I am not / a pattern to be followed
The pill that I'm on is a tough one to swallow
I'm not a criminal / not a role model
Not a born leader I'm a tough act to follow
I am not / the fortune and the fame
Or the same person telling you to forfeit the game
I came in the ring like a dog on a chain
And I found out the underbelly's sicker than it seems
And it seems ugly / but it can get worse
'Cause even a blueprint is a gift and a curse
'Cause once you got a theory of how the thing works
Everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first
And I'm not a robot
I'm not a monkey
I will not dance even if the beat's funky
Opposite of lazy / far from a punk
Ya'll ought to stop talking start trying to catch up motherfucker
And all the people say
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Try to catch up motherfucker
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Lauryn said money change a situation
Big said it increase the complication
Kane said don't step / I ain't the one
Chuck said that uzi weigh a motherfuckin' ton
And I'm just a student of the game that they taught me
Rockin' every stage in every place that it brought me
I'm awfully underrated / but came here to correct it
And so it ain't mistaken I'mma state it for the record /
I am / the opposite of whack / opposite of weak
Opposite of slack / synonym of heat
Synonym of crack / closest to a peak
Far from a punk
Ya'll ought to stop talking / start trying to catch up motherfucker
And all the people say
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Try to catch up motherfucker
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Oh / when they come for me
Come for me
I'll be gone [x4]
And all the people say
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (Woah, oh, oh / Woah, oh, oh)
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Try to catch up motherfucker
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (Woah, oh, oh)
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (Woah, oh, oh)
And all the people say
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (Woah, oh, oh / Woah, oh, oh)
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Try to catch up motherfucker
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (Woah, oh, oh / Woah, oh, oh)
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Escuchénme preste atención
Escuchénme ahora
Escuchénme ahora
Escuchénme todos
Escuchénme ahora mismo
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh [x8]

 

 

 

Robot Boy

 

 

You say / you're not gonna fight / 'cause no one will fight for you
And you think / there's not enough love / and no one to give it to
And you're sure / you've hurt for so long / you've got nothing left to lose
So you say / you're not gonna fight / 'cause no one will fight for you
You say / the weight of the world / has kept you from letting go
And you think / compassion's a flaw / and you'll never let it show
And you're sure / you've hurt in a way / that no one will ever know
But someday / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go
Woah, oh, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, woah, oh woah
Yeah, no
Hold on / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go (No, no, no, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah / Yeah, no)
So hold on / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go (Yeah, no, yeah no, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
So hold on / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go (Yeah, woah, not, not, not, not, oh God)
Just hold on / the weight of your world / will give you the strength to go

Waiting For The End

 

 

Yeah

Yo

 

This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
But you listen through the tone and the violent rhythm and
Though the words sound steady, something empty's within 'em
We say yeah / with fists flying up in the air
Like we're holding onto something that's invisible there
'Cause we're living at the mercy of the pain and fear
Until we dead it / forget it / let it all disappear
Yeah
Waiting for the end to come / wishing I had strength to stand
This was not what I had planned
It's out of my control
Flying at the speed of light / thoughts were spinning in my head
So many things were left unsaid
It's hard to let you go
I know what it takes to move on (Oh, woah, oh)
I know how it feels to lie (Oh, woah, oh)
All I want to do is trade this life for something new (Oh, oh)
Holding on to what I haven't got (Oh)
Sitting in an empty room / Trying to forget the past
This was never meant to last
I wish it wasn't so
I know what it takes to move on (Oh, woah, oh)
I know how it feels to lie (Oh, woah, oh)
All I want to do is trade this life for something new (Oh, oh)
Holding on to what I haven't got (Oh)
Yeah, yeah
What was left when that fire was gone
I thought it felt right but that right was wrong
All caught up in the eye of the storm
And trying to figure out what it's like moving on
And I don't even know what kind of things I said
My mouth kept moving and my mind went dead so I'm
Picking up the pieces now where to begin
The hardest part of ending is starting again
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, woah
All I want to do is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven't got (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, woah)
This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
(I'm holding on to what I haven't got)
But you listen through the tone and the violent rhythm and
Though the words sound steady, something empty's within 'em
We say yeah / with fists flying up in the air
Like we're holding onto something that's invisible there
(Holding on to what I haven't got)
Cause we're living at the mercy of the pain and fear
Until we dead it / forget it / let it all disappear

 

 

 

Blackout

 

 

I'm stuck in this bed you made
Alone with a sinking feeling
I saw through the words you said
To the secrets you've been keeping
It's written upon your face
All the lies how they cut so deeply
You can't get enough you take
And take and take and never say
NO / YOU'VE GOTTA GET IT INSIDE
YOU PUSH IT BACK DOWN / YOU PUSH IT BACK DOWN
NO / YOU'LL NEVER GET IT INSIDE
PUSH IT BACK DOWN
BLACKOUT
BLOOD IN YOUR EYE
You say that it's not your fault
And swear that I am mistaken
You said it's not what it seems
No remorse for the trust you're breaking
You run but then back you fall
Suffocate in the mess you're making
You can't get enough you take
And take and take and take and take
Fuck it
Are you listening?
NO / YOU'VE GOTTA GET IT INSIDE
YOU PUSH IT BACK DOWN / YOU PUSH IT BACK DOWN
NO / YOU'LL NEVER GET IT INSIDE
PUSH IT BACK DOWN / YOU PUSH IT BACK DOWN
NO / YOU'VE GOTTA GET IT INSIDE
YOU PUSH IT BACK DOWN / YOU PUSH IT BACK DOWN
NO / YOU'LL NEVER GET IT INSIDE
PUSH IT BACK DOWN
BLACKOUT
BLOOD IN YOUR EYE
BLACKOUT
BLOOD IN YOUR EYE
YOU PUSH IT BACK DOWN / PUSH IT BACK D-D-DOWN
YOU / YOU / YOU / YOU / YOU PUSH IT BACK DOWN
BLOOD IN YOUR EYE
BLACKOUT / BLACKOUT / B-B-BLACK / BLACKOUT
BLOOD / YOUR EYE
BLACKOUT / BLA-BLA-BLA-BLA-BLACKOUT / BLOOD IN YOUR
YOU / YOU / YOU / YOU / YOU / YOU / YOU
BLACKOUT / BLACK / BLACKOUT / BLACK
BLACKOUT
BLOOD IN YOUR EYE
Floating down / as colors fill the light
We look up from the ground / in fields of paperwhite
And floating up / you pass us in the night
A future gazing out / a past to overwrite
So come down / far below
We've been waiting to collect the things you know
Come down / far below
We've been waiting to collect what you've let go
Come down / Oh [x4]
Come down / Oh

 

 

 

Wretches and Kings

 

 

Mario Savio: "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious,
Makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part.
You can't even passively take part,
And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels,
Upon the levers, upon all the apparatus,
And you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all"
To save face / how low can you go?
Talk a lot of game but yet you don't know
Static on the way / make us all say "whoa"
The people up top push the people down low
Get down
And obey every word
Steady getting mine if you haven't yet heard
Wanna take what I got
Don't be absurd
Don't fight the power
Nobody gets hurt
If you haven't heard yet then I'm letting you know
There ain't shit we don't run when the guns unload
And no one make a move unless my people say so
Got everything outta control
Now everybody go
Hey [x8]
Steel unload / final blow (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
We the animals / take control (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Hear us now / clear and true (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Wretches and kings we come for you (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
So keep pace / how slow can you go
Talk a lot of shit and yet you don't know
Fire on the way / make you all say whoa
The people up top and the people down low
Get down
And I'm running it like that
The front of the attack is exactly where I'm at
Somewhere in between
The kick and the hi hat
The pen and the contract
The pitch and the contact
So get with the combat / I'm letting 'em know
There ain't shit you can say to make me back down, no
So / push the button let the whole thing blow
Spinning everything outta control
Now everybody go
Hey [x8]
Steel unload / final blow
We the animals / take control
Hear us now / clear and true
Wretches and kings we come for you
Steel unload / fire blow (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Filthy animals / beat them low (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Skin and bone / black and blue (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
No more this sun shall beat onto you (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
From the front to the back and the side to side
If you fear what I feel put 'em up real high [x2]
From the front to the back and the side to side (Hey [x8])
If you fear what I feel put 'em up real high (Hey [x8]) [x4]

Wisdom, Justice, and Love

 

 

Martin Luther King, Jr.: "I come to this magnificent house of worship tonight

Because my conscience leaves me no other choice.

A true revolution of values will lay hand on the world order and say of war,

This way of settling differences is not just.

This business of burning human beings with napalm,

Of filling our nation's homes with orphans and widows,

Of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane,

Of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged,

Cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love

Cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love

Cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love

Cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love

Cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love

Cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love

 

 

 

Iridescent

 

 

When you were standing in the wake of devastation
When you were waiting on the edge of the unknown
And with the cataclysm raining down
Insides crying, "Save me now"
You were there, impossibly alone
Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failure's all you've known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go
Let it go
And in a burst of light that blinded every angel
As if the sky had blown the heavens into stars
You felt the gravity of tempered grace
Falling into empty space
No one there to catch you in their arms
Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failure's all you've known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go
Let it go
Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failure's all you've known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go
Let it go [x2]
Let it go / Woah, oh
Let it go
Do you feel cold and lost in desperation? (Oh)
You build up hope, but failure's all you've known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go
Let it go

 

 

 

Fallout

 

 

I'm swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
The blame is mine alone / for bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
What I don't deserve

For the sins of our hand
The sins of our tongue
The sins of our father
The sins of our young

For the sins of our hand
The sins of our tongue
The sins of our father

The Messenger

 

 

When you feel you're alone
Cut off from this cruel world
Your instincts telling you to run
Listen to your heart
Those angel voices
They'll sing to you / they'll be your guide back home
When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind
It keeps us kind
When you've suffered enough
And your spirit is breaking
You're growing desperate from the fight
Remember you're loved and you always will be
This melody will bring you right back home
When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind
When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind
Oh, woah, oh
Oh, woah, oh
Oh, woah, oh, oh
Oh, woah, oh
Oh, woah, oh
Oh, woah, oh, oh
Oh, woah, oh
Oh, woah, oh
Oh, woah, oh, oh

 

 

 

Blackbirds

 

 

Drop like / get up
Take to the streets / better lock that kid up
Face full of teeth when he hock that spit up
Pacing the beat like a beast
Rocking the block on repeat
Speak from the cut like a rush of blood
Paint red on the sleeves of the ones you love
Lay the sick ones down and the bells will ring
Put pennies on the eyes let the dead men sing
I shiver and shake the warm air cold
I'm alone on my own
In every mistake I dig this hole
Through my skin and bones
It's harder starting over
Than never to have changed
With blackbirds following me (Oh, oh, oh)
I'm digging out my grave (Oh, oh, oh)
They close in, swallowing me (Oh, oh, oh)
The pain, it comes in waves (Oh, oh, oh)
I'm getting back what I gave (Oh)
I sweat through the sheet as daylight fades
As I waste away
It traps me inside mistakes I've made
That's the price I pay
It's harder starting over
Than never to have changed
With blackbirds following me
I'm digging out my grave
They close in, swallowing me
The pain, it comes in waves (Yeah)
I'm getting back what I gave
I drop to the floor like I did before
Stop watching / I'm coughing / I can't be more
What I want and what I need are at constant war
Like a well full of poison / a rotten core
The blood goes thin / the fever stings
And I shake from the hell that the habits bring
Let the sick ones down / the bells will ring
Put pennies on the eyes / let the dead men sing
Blackbirds following me
I'm digging out my grave
They close in, swallowing me
The pain, it comes in waves
I'm getting back what I gave (What I gave)
I'm getting back what I gave (What I gave, oh, oh)
I'm getting back what I gave

I Have Not Begun

 

 

Ladies and gents, sorry to keep ya'll waiting
This goes out to everybody still hating
For those that fake / ya'll can keep on fakin'
I'm cooking a plate for you to stick your whole face in
Tastes good, don't it cousin?
Just so you know it's nothin'
I get you buggin' like some Codiene in some Robitussin
It's just the way that I approach each time
I slap the track and turn around and choke each rhyme
Broadcast to the nation like NBC
With pages of 16s like an MPC
Deliver an ass-whipping via MP3
Giving you people more reality than MTV
Do it PPV / snap necks with the pressure
Make a mess / then carry you out on a stretcher
You could sue but / oh, the law won't protect ya
Even the court room sketcher could not sketch ya
You're not following me / I got your number like
Caller I.D. / try it / you can holler at me
I promise you pain / I will chop your body in threes
And you'll be sitting there stuttering / p-p-probabably
Follow me / I got styles / you can copy one
Back of your mind / I know you wanna stop me son
But here's news for you fucker: that can not be done
You can think that I'm finished / I have not begun
I'm grinding / putting these kids to bed
You think you're hard-boiled / fucker you're an easter egg
You got a pastel shell and a soft inside / squash your pride
You think I fucking lost my mind / I'm not playing
I might as well be making a bomb
I lay you down to foundation when I'm taking you on
Bet the farm on the rhyme for the sake of my mom
She's like / "Mike, show these pigs what kind of bacon you're on."
It's funny but don't laugh / money with no cash
The villain of vocab / I'm killing this notepad
The realest I wrote / man, you don't even know half
I'm banking a full tank / you're running on low gas
Take that / I'm cutting off your fun
You're nothing but a butter knife stopping a gun
We can dance but your chances are slim to none
And you can think that I'm finished / I have not begun
Got a razor-blade tongue and I get this done
No running, just dumping on your clique for fun
Machine Shop got it locked like the game's a joke
Say something funny get the whole gang provoked
Better buckle down fucker / go get your own
We been working ten years just to get this known
The people on the block start to get numb
They expect that it's fresh when the new shit come
Here it goes let 'em know they can fix the frown
Railroad rap hot tracks running you down
And they ask and repeat how I do this now
Like I'm really gonna tell 'em how I get this sound
We just do what we do give you that fix
We come in the back like we run this bitch
Turn the lights down low / and we start the show
When I give it to ya / give it right back and it goes
Take that / take that / cutting off your fun
You're nothing but a butter knife stopping a gun
We can dance but your chances are slim to none
You can think that I'm finished / I have not begun
Follow me / I got styles / you can copy one
Back of your mind / I know you wanna stop me son
But here's news for you fucker: that can not be done
You can think that I'm finished / I have not begun
Think I'm finished / I'm not
Begun
No

 

 

 

New Divide

 

 

I remembered black skies, the lightning all around me
I remembered each flash as time began to blur
Like a startling sign that fate had finally found me
And your voice was all I heard that I get what I deserve
So give me reason to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Give me reason to fill this hole, connect the space between
Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies across this new divide
There was nothing in sight but memories left abandoned
There was nowhere to hide, the ashes fell like snow
And the ground caved in between where we were standing
And your voice was all I heard that I get what I deserve
So give me reason to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes across this new divide
In every loss, in every lie, in every truth that you'd deny
And each regret and each goodbye was a mistake too great to hide
And your voice was all I heard that I get what I deserve
So give me reason to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Give me reason to fill this hole, connect the space between
Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies across this new divide
Across this new divide, across this new divide

 

 

 

Waiting For The End (Non-Rap Version)

 

 

Waiting for the end to come / wishing I had strength to stand
This was not what I had planned
It's out of my control
Flying at the speed of light / thoughts were spinning in my head
So many things were left unsaid
It's hard to let you go
I know what it takes to move on (Oh, woah, oh)
I know how it feels to lie (Oh, woah, oh)
All I want to do is trade this life for something new (Oh, oh)
Holding on to what I haven't got (Oh)
Sitting in an empty room / Trying to forget the past
This was never meant to last
I wish it wasn't so
I know what it takes to move on (Oh, woah, oh)
I know how it feels to lie (Oh, woah, oh)
All I want to do is trade this life for something new (Oh, oh)
Holding on to what I haven't got (Oh)
Yeah, yeah
What was left when that fire was gone
I thought it felt right but that right was wrong
All caught up in the eye of the storm
And trying to figure out what it's like moving on
And I don't even know what kind of things I said
My mouth kept moving and my mind went dead so I'm
Picking up the pieces now where to begin
The hardest part of ending is starting again
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, woah
All I want to do is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven't got (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, woah)
This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
(I'm holding on to what I haven't got)
But you listen through the tone and the violent rhythm and
Though the words sound steady, something empty's within 'em
We say yeah / with fists flying up in the air
Like we're holding onto something that's invisible there
(Holding on to what I haven't got)
Cause we're living at the mercy of the pain and fear
Until we dead it / forget it / let it all disappear

 

 

 

Wretches and Kings (GBC Remix; ft. Divine Styler)

 

 

Hey, hey

Steel unload / final blow (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
We the animals take control (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Hear us now clear and true (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Wretches and king we come for you (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
To save face, how low can you go
Act like you heard but yet you don't know
I act like a murderer, Dexter with the flow
They underestimate me I'm killing them on the low
So get down, but you don't really have an option
Shouting at the top of your lungs please stop
In my Woodstock mix with some '88 Compton
Lucy in the Sky with a sawed off shotgun
Stop it, walking to a beat so cold
The rhythm that's created when these guns unload
And no-one make a move unless my people say so
Got everything outta-control now everybody go
Occupying, modifying every statement downtown
Gentrifying, simplifying military compounds (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Satellite nanobyte superchip in subhuman Manchurian (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
I'm so megatron!
Steel unload / final blow (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
We the animals / take control (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Hear us now / clear and true (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Wretches and kings we come for you (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Steel unload / fire blow (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Filthy animals / beat them low (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Skin and bone / black and blue (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
No more the sun shall beat onto you
Tell the people what the truth is
Standing in the booth, that's a soldier surrounded by his troops, bitch
I don't really know just what a truce is, but I never call one
Look into the crowd they control 'em like Stalin
Joseph, hopeless, so pissed, bottom of the soap dish
Scummy ass profit, prophet
Semi-automatic in my front coat pocket
Loaded, if anyone opposes I'll pop it
(Uh, yeah)
Now when we hit the blocks
Finna set them car alarms off, like you hear the cops
Everybody stop for a second, just watch
And if you hear them shout, drop (Get down)
Tweaking out your brainwaves
Glitches, rags, riches, snitches
Pipe dreams wishes, it might seem suspicious
Any mister or misses that try to go against us
Might get stitches or wiped out of existence
Steel unload / final blow (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
We the animals / take control (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Hear us now / clear and true (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Wretches and kings we come for you (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Steel unload / fire blow (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Filthy animals / beat them low (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Skin and bone / black and blue (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
No more the sun shall beat onto you
Overseas operate, in and out of the camera
Navigating states in post-race through Gamera
Bottom feeders and eaters, victimizing with heaters
With clever reasons for eating and better means for competing
Futurism contemporary, so very modern
Is a symbolism inputting memories into body prisms
Anarchist language, mind full of anguish
Internet's to slang this, a boom box to bang this
Boom-bye-bye in the motherfucker head
And we mind want heavy but the mind want dead
I spew propaganda through these prison camp speakers
I'm the grim reaper in a pair of Michael Jordan sneakers
Freedom fighter, c-cipher, killer, still as the night though
Ice cold blood in my veins, brain of a psycho
Manufactured with my soul fractured in half
Divided by my violent side so you add-up the math
I'm half Elohim, alpha omega, beggar and peasant
Half king, half ruler of the things that are wretched
I'm crawling out the wreckage, I call you out on my wreckage
I knock you out for each second for you miss out on the message
(Listen)
Steel unload / final blow (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
We the animals / take control (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Hear us now / clear and true (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Wretches and kings we come for you (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Steel unload / fire blow (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Filthy animals / beat them low (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Skin and bone / black and blue (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
No more the sun shall beat onto you

Yo, yo
Forfeit the game
Before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame
Puts your name to shame
Cover up your face
You can't run the race
The pace is too fast
You just won't last

You love the way I look at you
While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through
You take away if I give in
My life, my pride is broken

You like to think you're never wrong (You like to think you're never wrong)
You have to act like you're someone (You have to act like you're someone)
You want someone to hurt like you (You want someone to hurt like you)
You want to share what you've been through
You live what you've learned

You love the things I say I'll do
The way I'll hurt myself again just to get back at you
You take away when I give in
My life, my pride is broken

You like to think you're never wrong (You like to think you're never wrong)
You have to act like you're someone (You have to act like you're someone)
You want someone to hurt like you (You want someone to hurt like you)
You want to share what you've been through
You live what you've learned

Yo, yo
Forfeit the game
Before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame
Puts your name to shame

Cover up your face
You can't run the race
The pace is too fast

You just won't last

Forfeit the game

Takes you out of the frame
Puts your name to shame

Cover up your face
You can't run the race

Hey, yo
When this first started off
It was just Linkin Park
And then in the middle
Came Motion Man
And at the end of it all
It was Kutmasta Kurt with a remix

One thing, I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind I designed this rhyme when I was obsessed with time
All I know, time was just slipping away
And I watched it count down to the end of the day
Watched it watch me and the words that I say
The echo of the clock rhythm in my veins
I know that I didn't look out below
And I watched the time go right out the window
Trying to grab hold
Trying not to watch
I wasted it all on the hands of the clock
But in the end, no matter what I pretend
The journey is more important than the end or the start
And what it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so
hard

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

Hey, yo
One thing,
I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind
I designed this rhyme to explain in due time
All I know, hah, I so-socialse
Like the host of the party
I spoke, shaked, and made eye-contact
Partied and toasted strong, all that
Northeast, Southwest coast
I'm staring out the window
No oppourtunity to mingle
I tried to sew it up to weaken your system
I had you throwing up
I brought you back into things
Like the imaginary man of your dreams
You'd always seem to make it worth it
I picked skin, I never nursed it
You felt like loving, never played real
I'm bringing the pleasure
By any means it means I'm leaving your team
Hell of a team, man it seems I tried so hard

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

Linkin Park
Remix
Motion Man
Linkin Park
In the end
Kutmasta Kurt
Linkin Park
Remix
Motion Man
Linkin Park
In the end
Kutmasta Kurt
Remix

One thing, I don't know how
It doesn't even matter when you look at it now
‘Cause when I designed this rhyme
I was scared of it all, scared to fall, and I hadn't even tried to crawl
But I was forced to run with you mocking me, stopping me, backstabbing
me constantly
Remembering all the times you fought with me
Watch the clock now chock-full of hipocrisy
But now your mouth wishes it could inhale
Every single little thing you said to make things fail
Every single word you sputtered just to get your piece
But it really doesn't matter to me
‘Cause from the start to the end, no matter what I pretend
The journey is more important than the end or the start
And what it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so
hard

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

In the end

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture's there
The memory won't escape me

We're stuck in a place so dark
You can hardly see
The manner of matter that splits with the words I breathe
And as the rain drips acidic questions around me
I block out the sight and the powers that be
And duck away into the darkness
Times up I wind up in a rusted world with eyes shut so tight that it blurs into the world of
pretend
And the eyes ease open
And it's dark again

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture's there
The memory won't escape me
But why should I care?

In the memory you'll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up

Listen to the sound
Dizzy from the ups and downs
I'm nauseated by the polluted rot that's all around
Watching the wheels of cars that pass
I look past to the last of the light and the long shadows it casts
A window grows and captures the eye
And cries out a yellow light as it passes me by
And a young shadowy figure sits in front of a box
Inside a building of rock with anntenaes on top, now
Nothing can stop in this land of the pain
The sane lose not knowing they were part of the game
And while the insides change
The box stays the same and the figure inside could bear anybody's name
The memories I keep are from a time like then
I put 'em on paper so I could come back to them
Someday I'm hoping to close my eyes and pretend
That this crumpled up paper can be perfect again

Yo, from the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture's there
The memory won't escape me

I'm here at this podium talking
The ceremonial offerings dedicated to urban dysfunctional offspring
What's happening?
City governments are eternally napping
Trapped in greedy covenants
Causing urban collapse
And bullets that scar souls with dark holes
Get more than your car stole, some hearts be blacker than charcoal, for real
This society's deprivation depends not on our differences but the separation
within
No preparation is made
Limited age and minimum wage
Living in a tenement cage for innocent pay
Tragedy within a parade
The darkness overspreads like a permenent plague
I'm the forgotten

In the memory you'll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up

 

P5hng Me A*Wy

When I look into your eyes there's nothing there to see
Nothing but my own mistakes staring back at me

Everything has to end
You'll soon find that we're out of time left to watch it all unwind
Everything falls apart
Even the people who never frown eventually break down
Everything has to end
You'll soon find we're out of time left to watch in all unwind
Everything falls apart
Even the people who never frown eventually break down

I've lied to you
This is the last smile that I'll fake for the sake of being with you
Everything falls apart
Even the people who never frown eventually break down
Everything has to end
You'll soon find we're out of time left to watch it all unwind
The sake of being with you
Everything falls apart
Even the people who never frown eventually break down
The sacrifice is never knowing

Why I stayed when you
Just push away
No matter what you see
You're still so blind to me

Even the people who never frown eventually break down

I've tried, like you, to do everything you wanted to
This is the last time
That I'll take the blame for the sake of being with you
Everything falls apart
Even the people who never frown eventually break down
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
Everything has to end
You'll soon find we're out of time left to watch it all unwind
The sacrifice is never knowing

Why I stay when you
Just push away
No matter what you see
You're still so blind to me

Reverse psychology is failing miserably
It's so hard to be left all alone
Telling you is the only chance for me
There is nothing left but to turn and face you
When I look into your eyes there's nothing there to see
Nothing but my own mistakes staring back at me
Asking why
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
The sacrifice is never knowing

Why I stay when you
Just push away
No matter what you see
You're still so blind to me

Why I stay when you
Just push away
No matter what you see
You're still so blind to me

I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
I want to be in the energy
Not with the enemy
A place for my head

I watch how the moon sits in the sky on a dark night
Shining with the light from the sun
But the sun doesn't give the light to the moon assuming the moon's going to owe
it one
It makes me think of how you act to me
You do favours then rapidly
You just turn around and start asking me about things that you want back from
me

I'm sick of the tension
Sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

I'm so sick of the tension
Sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
You'll see it's not meant to be
I want to be in the energy
Not with the enemy
A place for my head

I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
You'll see it's not meant to be
I want to be in the energy
Not with the enemy
A place for my head

 

(I want to)

(I want to)

(I want to)

Two, two, three, three
Yo, yo, yo
Give me Energon to keep me calm
You and your mom keep all the dram
Used to be a team, passed that baton
But you flop that bomb as you drop that bomb
Take it to the john in your babylon
Flushed down with the sound that you carry on
I don't really give a dang
You pissed on my lawn
Took a dump like a punk
Now the battle's on

So sick of you stressing
Sick of you fessing
Sick of you acting like I owe you some
Find another place to feed your face
If you don't, we gon' bump
Get it up here, crunk
So sick of you stressing
Sick of you fessing
Sick of you acting like I owe you some
Find another place to feed your face
If you don't, we gon' bump
Get it up here, crunk

I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
You'll see it's not meant to be
I want to be in the energy
Not with the enemy
A place for my head

I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
You'll see it's not meant to be
I want to be in the energy
Not with the enemy
A place for my head

You try to take the best of me
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me

(Go away) (x14)

You try to take the best of me, go away

You try to take the best of me

You try to take the best of me

You try to take the best of me

You try to take the best of me
You try to take the best
Go, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me (get away from me), go away
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away

You try to take the best of me
Get away from me

Wasn't that fun?
Let's try something else

Forty-five calibre killer from out of the filler
Definitely going to show y'all brothers how you not a gorilla
Smooth talking, fully automatic weapon concealer
Taste thriller, break thriller
Let's hit ‘em with the bounce filler
Filthy stinking, standing on solid ground
And still be sinking, submerging in the parks
Still be linking, plucked beef when it starts
To fuck your thinking, it's not a mirage
I'm in the motherfucking track, yo, from out the garage
With an if, you to duck, but it's hard to dodge
In the back of the spine where my dawgs, they lie
Going to flip it straight up, ripping apart your squad
X-ecutioner style, cuts and blends like a syringe
Hanging you from each of your limbs
See me coming through the party hard without no bodyguard
Smoking something, stomping on each of you Tims
I'm the B-to-the-L, the A, the C, King
And when it comes to planning
The thought to keep thinking, man

Shut up

Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes, sometimes…

Hybrid

Linkin Park
I've been digging in the crates ever since I was living in space
Before the rat race, before monkeys had human traits
I mastered numerology, big band theology, performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology
Invented the mic so I can start blessing it
Chin-checkin' kids to make my point like an impressionist
Many men have tried to shake us
But I twist mic chords to double helixes to show them what I'm made of
I buckle knees like leg braces
Cast a spell of instrumental-ness on all of you emcees who hate us
So you can try on, leave you without a shoulder to cry on
From now to infinity, let icon be bygones
I fire bombs, ghostly notes haunt this
I tried threats, but moved on to a promise
I stomp shit with or without an accomplice
And run the gauntlet with whoever that wants this

High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin' you up and takin' you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide

Akira
I've put a kink in the backbones, of clones, with microphones
Never satisfied my rhymes jones
Spraying bright day over what you might say
My blood types krylon, technicolor type-A
On highways write with road rage
pages of wind, in cages a tin, that bounce all around
Surround sound
Devouring the scene
Subliminal gangrene paintings, over all the same-thing
Sing-songs karaoke copy bullshit
Break bones verbally with sticks and stones tactics
Forth dimension, combat convention
Write rhymes at ease while the track stands at attention
Meant to put you away, with the pencil
Pistol, official, sixteen line rhyme missile
While you risk your all
I pick out at your flaws
Spitting raw blah, blah, blah you can say you saw

High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin' you up and takin' you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin' you up and takin' you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide

Who's the man, demandin' your hand over your land rover?
no mans bolder when he jams your plans over
I inflict sclerosis, the most ferocious
When I spy my third eye's extremely high voltage
That's why I need ruby-quartz glasses, cause when I glance
There's a chance, then I might blast the masses
Subliminals transmitted through piano
Integrated in flow, calculated in nano
I use skills when I need, please heed the rhyme
I heal when I bleed when I proceed through time
I walk through walls and the inanimate obstacles
By inducing the reduction of cells and molecules
I bring the knowledge you swallow a steak that's a hologram
I box your head, fatten your lip like collagen
The telepath deliver verses with no postage
Pharoah Monch, Mike Shinoda, we high voltage

High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin' you up and takin' you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High voltage

Hey Mike, what's up?
This is Ron, just asking to see what's happenin'
Uh just touchin' base, see how your Easter went.
Umm, Just seein' if you gonna see Joe sometime soon too,
Cuz he's got my keyboard that I've been trying to get back.
I've been trying to call him, and he hasn't returned any messages.
So I'm seeing what's the best angle to, uh get it back.

 

Wth>You

Come on!

I woke up in a dream today
To the cold of the static
And put my cold feet on the floor
Forgot all about yesterday
Remembering I'm pretending to be where I'm not anymore
A little taste of hypocrisy
And I'm left in the wake of the mistake
Slow to react
Even though you're so close to me
You're still so distant, and I can't bring you back

It's true, the way I feel
Was promised by your face
The sound of your voice
Painted on my memories
Even if you're not with me I'm with you

You, now I see, keeping everything inside
With you
You, now I see, even when I close my eyes
With you
You, now I see, keeping everything inside
With you
You, now I see, even when I close my eyes

I hit you and you hit me back
And we fall to the floor
The rest of the day stands still
Fine line between this and that
But when things go wrong, I pretend that the past isn't real
Now I'm trapped in this memory
And I'm left in the wake of the mistake
Slow to react
Even though you're close to me
You're still so distant, and I can't bring you back

It's true, the way I feel
Was promised by your face
The sound of your voice
Painted on my memories
Even if you're not with me
I'm with you

You, now I see, keeping everything inside
With you
You, now I see, even when I close my eyes
With you
You, now I see, keeping everything inside
With you
You, now I see, even when I close my eyes

(No)
I won't let you control my fate
While I'm holding the weight of the world on my conscience
(No)
I won't just sit here and wait
While you weighing your options
You're making a fool of me
(No)
You didn't dare to try to say that you don't care
And solemnly swear not to follow me there
(No)
It ain't like me to beg on my knees
Oh please, oh baby please
That's not how I'm doing things
(No)
No I'm not upset, no I'm not angry
I know love is love, love but sometimes it pains me
(No)
With or without you, I'll always be with you
You'll never forget me, I'm keeping you with me
(No)
I won't let you take me to the end of my rope
While you burn it and torture my soul
(No)
No I'm not your puppet
And no, no, no, I won't let you go

No, no matter how far we've come
I can't wait to see tomorrow
No matter how far we've come
I, I can't wait to see tomorrow
With you

You, now I see, keeping everything inside
With you
You, now I see, even when I close my eyes
With you
You, now I see, keeping everything inside
With you
You, now I see, even when I close my eyes

 

Ppr:kut

Uh, yeah

Ah

Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
Like a face that I hold inside
Face that awakes when I close my eyes
Face that I watch every time I lie
Face that laughs every time I fall
It watches everything
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me
Right underneath my skin

It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

Hey yo
Here we go again with the pain I feel
Is it real or in my mind
When I found myself in places
With names but not faces
My memory races at speeds
Hundred degrees, my soul bleed
Devil must've planted the seed
Now it feels like my back's against the wall
I'm taking the fall
Whenever I call nobody's responding at all
I don't know whom I can trust,
They're screaming my name
I need somebody to help me out of the frame

All I'm trying to do is just master me
All I'm tryin' to do is smoke and blast a beat
But something keeps on talking to me consciously,
Responsibly keeps haunting me
From dusk til dawn everything has something for ya
That voice has got you projecting paranoia
Cold sweat, shining on your face exposing your
purpose
And if I ripped off your skin I'd probably find a,
another person
There`s nothing worse than trying to bring yourself up back from the dead
So I advise you listen to that voice in the back of your head

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin

The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
The sun goes down
It's like I'm paranoid

I feel the light betray me

(Can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin)

The sun
(It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin)

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

Graffiti decorations under a sky of gray
This constant apprehension still giving me away
The lessons I've forgotten
In spite of all I've learned
Now I find myself in question
(Point, point the finger at me again)
Guilty by association
(Point, point the finger at me again)

I wanna runaway
(I wanna runaway)
I wanna know the truth
(I wanna know the truth)
I wanna know the answers
(I wanna know the answers)
I wanna shut the door
(And open up my mind)
And open up my mind
(And open up my mind)

Paper bags and angry voices under a sky of gray
This constant apprehension won't seem to go away
All my talk of starting over
These words were never true
Now I find myself in question
(Point, point the finger at me again)
I'm guilty by association
(Point, point the finger at me again)

I wanna runaway
(I wanna runaway)
I wanna know the truth
(I wanna know the truth)
I wanna know the answers
(I wanna know the answers)
I wanna shut the door
(And open up my mind)
And open up my mind
(And open up my mind)

Gonna runaway, gonna runaway
Gonna runaway, gonna runaway
Runaway {being scratched over and over again}
(Ya'll not ready)

Hey yo I don't think ya'll ready for what I'm about to do
Y'all new school dudes ain't even got no clue
How dare you forget about Bam and Zulu
Two urban jazz DJ's they paved the way
Let me spit it to y'all who said I wasn't gonna make it
Every time I blaze it, ya'll the first to hate it
My team reins supreme and stays strong
Every 2 series son, they scared to put us on
Can't get with the high prince, get off your high atis
Too many of y'all is dyin' for us so I gotta blaze it
I'm still reppin' BK, Brooklyn D and on
Hell fire and family alienation
Banging hits in the backyard
Out on the episode
I'm a little kid named
Phoenix Orion

I wanna runaway
(I wanna runaway)
I wanna know the truth
(I wanna know the truth)
I wanna know the answers
(I wanna know the answers)
I wanna shut the door
(And open up my mind)
And open up my mind
(And open up my mind)

 

My

This is my December
This is my time of the year
This is my December
This is all so clear

 

(Give it all away)

(Give it all away)

This is my December
This is my snow covered home
This is my December
This is me alone

And I
Just wish that I didn't feel
Like there was something I missed
And I
Take back all the things I said
To make you feel like that
And I
Just wish that I didn't feel
Like there was something I missed
And I
Take back all the things that I said to you

And I give it all away
Just to have somewhere to go to
Give it all away
To have someone to come home to

This is my December
These are my snow covered dreams
This is me pretending
This is all I need

And I
Just wish that I didn't feel
Like there was something I missed
And I
Take back all the things I said
To make you feel like that
And I
Just wish that I didn't feel
Like there was something I missed
And I
Take back all the things that I said to you

And I give it all away
Just to have somewhere to go to
Give it all away
To have someone to come home to

This is my December
This is my time of the year
This is my December
This is all so clear

Give it all away
Just to have somewhere to go to
Give it all away
To have someone to come home to

Give it all away
Just to have somewhere to go to
Give it all away
To have someone to come home to

Myself…
Myself…

What do I do to ignore them behind me
Do I follow my instincts blindly
Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening
Do I sit here and try to stand it
Or do I try to catch them red-handed
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness
Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin
I make the right moves but I'm lost within
I put on my daily facade but then
I just end up getting hurt again

By myself (myself)
I ask why
But in my mind I find
I can't rely on myself (myself)
I ask why
But in my mind I find
I can't rely on myself

I can't look around
(It's too much to take in)
I can't hold on
(When I'm stretched so thin)
I can't slow down
(Watching everything spin)
I can't look back
(It's starting over again)

If I turn my back I'm defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on
Then they'll take from me 'till everything is gone
If I let them go I'll be outdone
But if I try to catch them I'll be outrun
If I'm killed by the questions like a cancer
Then I'll be buried in the silence of the answer

By myself (myself)
I ask why
But in my mind I find
I can't rely on myself (myself)

I'd like to introduce…
In your, in your, in your… (echo fade)
In your sound institute of invention of reliable audio weapon system
Let's, let's try, let's try (scratched)
Let's try something else
Folks, we have a very special guest for you tonight, tonight, tonight… (echo fade)
Break it down (Cut it up!)
Using the waves of sound
A true master paralyzes his opponent, leaving him vulnerable to attack…Mr.
Hahn

Break…
I'm about to break!
I need room to breathe… (x3)

I cannot take this anymore
Saying everything I've said before
All these words, they make no sense
I found bliss in ignorance
Less I hear, the less you say
But you'll find that out anyway

I find the answers aren't so clear
Wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts, they make no sense
I found bliss in ignorance
Nothing seems to go away
Over and over again (x5)
Just like before…

Everything you say to me
And I'm about to break!
I need a little room to breathe
I'm about to break!

Everything you say to me
And I'm about to break!
I need a little room to breathe
And I'm about to break!
Break!

These are the places where I can't feel
Torn from my body, my flesh it heals
During this ride we can cut up what we like
Waiting alone I can not resist
Feeling this hate I have never missed
Please someone give me a reason to rip off my face

Blood is a pouring and pouring and pouring…

Shut up when I'm talking to you!
Shut up! (blood is pouring)
Shut up! (blood is pouring)
Shut up! (blood is pouring)
Shut up when I'm talking to you!
Shut up! (blood is pouring)
Shut up! (blood is pouring)
Shut up! (blood is pouring)
Shut up! I'm about to break!

Everything you say to me
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
And I'm about to…

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to…

Crawling in my skin
Without a sense of confidence…
Consuming, confusing…

Crawling in my skin
Without a sense of confidence
And I'm convinced that there's
Just too much pressure to take
There's something inside me
That pulls beneath the surface

Crawling in my skin
(Crawling in my skin)
These wounds they will not heal
(These wounds won't heal)
Fear is how I fall
(Fear is how I will fall)
Confusing, confusing what is real
(Confusing what is real)

 

(Confusing what is real)

There's something inside me that
Pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing
This lack of self-control
I fear is never ending
Controlling, I can't seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
Without a sense of confidence
And I'm convinced that there's
Just too much pressure to take
I've felt this way before
So insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Discomfort endlessly
Has pulled itself upon me
Distracting, reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It's haunting how I can't seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
Without a sense of confidence
And I'm convinced that there's
Just too much pressure to take
I've felt this way before
So insecure

Without a sense of confidence…
Without a sense of confidence…

Without a sense of confidence
I'm convinced that there's
Just too much pressure to take
Without a sense of confidence…
Without a sense of confidence…

Without a sense of confidence
I'm convinced that there's
Just too much pressure to take

To find myself again
My walls are closing in
Without a sense of confidence
And I'm convinced that there's
Just too much pressure to take
I've felt this way before
So insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real
Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing, confusing what is real

I've lost so much
I'm so afraid
I'm out of touch
How do you expect
I will know what to do
When all I know
Is what you tell me to

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture's there
The memory won't escape me
But why should I care?

There's a place so dark you can't see the end
Skies cock back and shock that which can't defend
The rain then sends dripping / acidic questions
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then with the eyes shut / looking thought the rust and rot
And dust / a spot of dirty, yellow light floods the floor
And pours over the rusted world of pretend
The eyes ease open and its dark again

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture's there
The memory won't escape me
But why should I care?

In the memory you'll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up

Moving all around / screaming of the ups and downs
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
The wheels go round and the sunset creeps behind
Street lamps, chain-link and concrete
A little piece of paper with a picture drawn floats
On down the street 'till the wind is gone
The memory now is like the picture was then
When the paper's crumpled up it can't be perfect again

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture's there
The memory won't escape me
But why should I care?

From the top to the bottom

You know what I mean
You could put a label on a life
Put a label on a lifestyle

Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes, sometimes…

You know
Put a label on how you wake up every morning
And go to bed at night

Hybrid
I've been digging in the crates ever since I was living in space
Before the rat race, before monkeys had human traits
I mastered numerology, big bang theology, performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology
Invented the mic so I can start blessing it
Chin-checkin' kids to make my point like an impressionist
Many men have tried to shake us
But I twist mic chords in double helixes to show them what I'm made of
I buckle knees like leg braces
Cast a spell of instrumental-ness on all of you emcees who hate us
So you can try on, leave you without a shoulder to cry on
From now to infinity, let icon be bygones
I fire bombs, ghostly notes haunt this
I tried threats, but moved on to a promise
I stomp shit with or without an accomplice
And run the gauntlet with whoever that wants this

High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin you up and takin you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide

Akira
I've put a kink in the backbones, of clones, with microphones
Never satisfied my rhymes jones
Spraying bright day over what you might say
My blood types krylon, technicolor type-A
On highways right with road rage
pages of wind, in cages a tin, that bounce all around
Surround sound
Devouring the scene
Subliminal gangrene paintings, over all the same-thing
Sing-songs karaoke copy bullshit
Break bones verbally with sticks and stones tactics
Fourth dimension, combat convention
Write rhymes at ease while the track stands at attention
Meant to put you away, with the pencil
Pistol, official, sixteen line rhyme missile
While you risk your all
I pick out at your flaws
Spitting raw blah, blah, blah

You can say you saw

High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin you up and takin you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin you up and takin you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide

And, like, the rock and rap
You know what I mean
People acting like, you know
'Wow, that's a new invention'
That shit ain't new
It's constantly evolving
We're constantly changing

Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes, sometimes…

There's a lot of change
Everybody's always up with the labels
There ain't no label for this shit
They're always going to try
To put a label on it
To try to create something
So they can water it down

Sometimes I feel like a prophet
Misunderstood, under the gun like a new disease
Sometimes I feel like a prophet
Misunderstood, under the gun like a new disease

High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin you up and takin you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin you up and takin' you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide

Ppr:Kut Demo

Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
Like a face that I hold inside
Face that awakes when I close my eyes
Face that I watch every time I lie
Face that laughs every time I fall
It watches everything
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me
Right underneath my skin

It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

I know I've got a face in me
Points out all my mistakes to me
You've got a face on the inside too
Your paranoia's probably worse
I don't know what set me off first
But I know what I can't stand
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is
I can't add up to what you can but
Everybody has a face that they hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face that watches every time they lie
A face that laughs every time they fall
It watches everything
So you know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is watching you too
Right underneath my skin

It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath the skin
It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin

The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
The sun

It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath the skin
It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

The rhythm projects round my next sound
Reflects the complex hybrid dialect now
Detect the mesh of many elements compressed down
The melting pot of a super futuresque style
The combination of a vocal caress
With lungs that gasp for breath
From emotional stress
And special effects
In a distorted collage
Carefully lodged between beats of rhythmic barrage

It's going down
The logical progression on the timeline
The separation narrowed down to a fine line
To blur the edges so they blend together properly
Take you on an audible odyssey now

It's going down
Once again it is
Composed sentences all together venomous
The four elements of natural force
Projected daily through the sound of the source
Everybody on board as we blend
The sword with the pen
The mightiest of the weapons
Swinging right for the chin
To elevate mental states
Long gone with the wind
To defend men from shoddy imitation pretends
It's going down
Style assimilation readily
Trekking through the weaponry
Of a pure pedigree
Cleverly seeing through whatever is ahead of me
Whatever the weather be
We advancing steadily
It's going down sub-terrestrial high
A rhyme regiment is calling the shots
Execution of collaborative plots
Ready to bring the separation of style to a stop

It's Goin' Down (Promo)

I knew I was being threatened
Do you think it's worth holding out?
I mean I've heard some pretty ugly things about those guys
Ugly stories

Watch them flee
Watch them flee
Rap Up
Watch them flee
Hip hop hits
And you do like this

It's going down
The rhythm projects round my next sound
Reflects the complex hybrid dialect now
Detect the mesh of many elements compressed down
The melting pot of a super futuresque style
The combination of a vocal caress
With lungs that gasp for breath
From emotional stress
And special effects
In a distorted collage
Carefully lodged between beats of rhythmic barrage

It's going down
The logical progression on the timeline
The separation narrowed down to a fine line
To blur the edges so they blend together properly
Take you on an audible odyssey now

Composed sentences all together venomous
The four elements of natural force
Projected daily through the sound of the source
Everybody on board as we blend
The sword with the pen
The mightiest of the weapons
Swinging right for the chin
To elevate mental states
Long gone with the wind
To defend men from shoddy imitation pretends
It's going down
Style assimilation readily
Trekking through the weaponry
Of a pure pedigree
Cleverly seeing through whatever is ahead of me
Whatever the weather be
We advancing steadily
It's going down sub-terrestrial high
A rhyme regiment is calling the shots
Execution of collaborative plots
Ready to bring the separation of style to a stop

Collision Course

 

Dirt Off Your Shoulder/Lying From You

I ordered a frappuccino.
Where's my fucking frappuccino?

Ha ha ha
Alright, let's do this.

When I pretend everything is what I want it to be,
I look exactly like what you had always wanted to see,
When I pretend, I can't forget about the criminal I am,
Stealin' second after second just 'cause I know I can,
But I can't pretend this is the way it'll stay,
I'm just trying to bend the truth,
I can't pretend I'm who you want me to be,
So I'm lying my way from..

If you feelin' like a pimp nigga, go and brush your shoulders off,
Ladies is pimps too, go and brush your shoulders off,
Niggas is crazy baby, don't forget that boy told you,
Get, that, dirt off your shoulder.

I probably owe it to y'all, proud to be locked by the force,
Tryin' to hustle some things, that go with the Porsche,
Feelin' no remorse, feelin' like my hand was forced,
Middle finger to the law, nigga, grippin' my balls,
All the ladies they love me, from the bleachers they screamin',
All the ballers is bouncin' they like the way I be leanin',
All the rappers be hatin', off the track that I'm makin',
But all the hustlers they love it just to see one of us make it,
Came from the bottom the bottom, to the top of the pops,
Nigga London, Japan and I'm straight off the block,
Like a running back, get it man, I'm straight off the block,
I can run it back, nigga, cause I'm straight with the Roc.

If you feelin' like a pimp nigga, go and brush your shoulders off,
Ladies is pimps too, go and brush your shoulders off,
Niggas is crazy baby, don't forget that boy told you,
Get, that, dirt off your shoulder

You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder,
You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder,
You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder,
You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder.

Your homie Hov' in position, in the kitchen with soda
I just whipped up a watch, tryin' to get me a Rover
Tryin' to stretch out the coca, like a wrestler, yessir,
Keep the Heckler close, you know them smokers'll test ya,
But like, fifty-two cards when I'm, I'm through dealin,
Now, fifty-two bars come out, now you feel ‘em,
Now, fifty-two cars roll out, remove ceiling,
In case fifty-two broads come out, now you chillin',
With a boss bitch of course S.C. on the sleeve,
At the 40/40 club, ESPN on the screen,
I paid a grip for the jeans, plus the slippers is clean,
No chrome on the wheels, I'm a grown-up for real.

Yeah, I remember what they taught to me,
Remember condescending talk of who I outta be,
Remember listenin' to all of that and this again,
So I pretended up a person who was fittin' in,
And now you think this person really is me,
And I'm trying to bend the truth,
But, the more I push, the more I'm pullin' away,
‘Cause I'm lying my way from you.

(No, no turning back now),
I wanna be pushed aside,
So let me go,
(No, no turning back now),
Lemme take back my life,
I'd rather be all alone,
(No turning back now),
Anywhere on my own,
‘Cause I can see,
(No, no turning back now),
The very worst part of you,
The very worst part of you,
Is me.

This isn't what I wanted to be,
I never thought that what I said,
Would have you running from me,
Like this,
This isn't what I wanted to be,
I never thought that what I said,
Would have you runnin' from me,
Like this (like this),
This isn't what I wanted to be,
I never thought that what I said,
Would have you running from me,
Like this (like this),
This isn't what I wanted to be,
I never thought that what I said,
Would have you running from me,
Like this.

You..

(No turning back now),
I wanna be pushed aside,
So let me go,
(No, no turning back now),
Lemme take back my life,
I'd rather be all alone,
(No turning back now),
Anywhere on my own,
‘Cause I can see,
(No, no turning back now),
The very worst part of you,
The very worst part of you,
Is me.

Biatch!

 

Big Pimpin'/Papercut

Hahaha
You're wasting your talent, Randy

It's like I'm paranoid, looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right…

Why does it look like night today?
Something in here's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But, I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
It's like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face that watches every time they lie
A face that laughs every time they fall
It watches everything
So I know that, when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me
Right underneath my skin

It's like I'm paranoid, looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right…

You know I thug ‘em, fuck ‘em, love ‘em, leave ‘em
Cause I don't fucking need ‘em
Take ‘em out the ‘hood, keep ‘em lookin' good
But I don't fucking feed ‘em
First time they fuss I'm breezing, talking about: What's the reason?
I'm a pimp in every sense of the word bitch
Better trust and believe him
In the cut where I keep ‘em
Til I need a nut, til I need to beat the guts
Then it's, beep, beep and I'm pickin ‘em up
Let ‘em play with the dick in the truck
Many chicks wanna put Jigga fist in cuffs
Divorce him and split his bucks
Just because you got good head, I'm gonna break bread
So you can be livin' it up? Shit I..
Parts with nothin', y'all be frontin'
Me give my heart to a woman?
Not for nothin', never happen I'll be forever mackin'
Heart cold as assassins, I got no passion
I got no patience
And I hate waitin'…
Hoe get yo' ass in
And let's RI-I-I-I-I-IDE… check ‘em out now
RI-I-I-I-I-IDE, yeah
And let's RI-I-I-I-I-IDE… check ‘em out now
RI-I-I-I-I-IDE, yeah

We doin'… big pimpin', we spendin' G's
Check ‘em out now
Big pimpin', on B.L.A.D.'s
We doin'… big pimpin' up in N.Y.C.
It's just that Jigga Man, Pimp C, and B-U-N B
Yo yo yo.. big pimpin', spendin' G's
We doin'… big pimpin', on B.L.A.D.'s
We doin'… big pimpin' up in N.Y.C.
It's just that Jigga Man, Pimp C, and B-U-N B

 

Jigga What/Faint

Yeah

Jigga what?

Jigga who?

Jigga what?

Jigga who?

Jigga what?

You gonna lead the vocal in, right?

Mother fuckers wanna act loco, hit ‘em up wit, numerous
shots with the fo'-fo'
Faggots runnin' to the Po-Po's, smoke ‘em like cocoa
Fuck rap, coke by the boatload
Fuck dat, on the run-by, gun high, one eye closed
Left holes through some guy clothes
Stop your bullshittin', glock with the full clip
Mother fuckers better duck when the fool spit
One shot could make a nigga do a full flip
See the nigga layin' shocked when the bullet hit
I hate my high youth, no niggas wanna buy you
But see me I wanna fuck for free
Now I gotta let her take this ride, make you feel it inside your belly,
If it's tight get the K-Y Jelly
All night get you wide up inside the telly
Side to side, 'til you say Jay-Z you're too much for me

I am a little bit of loneliness, a little bit of disregard
Handful of complaints but I can't help the fact that everyone can see these scars
I am what I want you to want, what I want you to feel
But it's like no matter what I do, I can't convince you to just believe this is real
So I let go watching you turn your back like you always do
Face away and pretend that I'm not, but I'll be here 'cause you're all that I got

Got a condo with nothin' but condoms in it
The same place where the rhymes is invented
So all I do is rap and sex, imagine how I stroke
See how I was flowin' on my last cassette?
Rapid-fire like I'm blastin' a Tec, never jam though
Never get high, never run out of ammo
Niggaz hatin' and shit cause I slayed your bitch
You know your favorite, I know it made you sick
And now you're, actin' raw but you never had war
Don't know how to carry your hoe, wanna marry your hoe
Now she's mad at me, 'cause Your Majesty, just happened to be a pimp
What a tragedy
She wanted, us to end, cause I fucked with friends
She gave me one more chance and I fucked her again
I seen her tears as she busted in, I said, Shit..
there's a draft, shut the door bitch and come on in!

I am a little bit insecure, a little unconfident
Cause you don't understand, I do what I can but sometimes I don't make sense
I am what you never wanna say, but I've never had a doubt
It's like no matter what I do, I can't convince you for once just to hear me out
So I let go watching you turn your back like you always do
Face away and pretend that I'm not, but I'll be here 'cause you're all that I got

I can't feel
The way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal
This damage anymore
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

No
Hear me out now
You're gonna listen to me
Like it or not
Right now
Hear me out now
You're gonna listen to me
Like it or not
Right now

I can't feel
The way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

I can't feel
The way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal
This damage anymore
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

I can't feel
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

 

Numb/Encore

Thank you, thank you, thank you, You're far too kind.
Let's go

Can I get a encore?
Do you want more?
Cookin' raw with the Brooklyn boys
So, for one last time, I need y'all to roar.

Now, what the hell are you waiting for?
After me, there shall be no more
So, for one last time, nigga, make some noise

Get ‘em, Jay

Who you know fresher than Hov?
Riddle me that
The rest of y'all know where I'm lyrically at
Can't none of y'all mirror me back
Yeah, hearin' me rap is like hearin' G. Rap in his prime
I'm young H.O.: Rap's Grateful Dead
Back to take over the globe-now break bread
I'm in Boeing jets, Global Express
Out the country but the blueberry still connect
On the low but the yacht got a triple deck
But when you young what the fuck you expect? (yep, yep)
Grand openin'-grand closin'
God damn, your man Hov cracked the can open again
Who you gon' find doper than him with no pen?
Just draw off inspiration
Soon you gon' see you can't replace him (him)
With cheap imitations for these generations

Can I get a encore? Do you want more?
Cookin' raw with the Brooklyn boys
So, for one last time, I need y'all to roar

Now, what the hell are you waiting for?
After me, there shall be no more
So, for one last time, nigga, make some noise

What the hell are you waiting for?

Look what you made me do, look what I made for you.
Knew if I paid my dues how will they pay you?
When you first come in the game they try to play you
Then you drop a couple of hits-look how they wave to you
From Marcy to Madison Square
To the only thing that matters in just a matter of years (yeah)
As fate would have it Jay's status appears
To be at an all-time high-perfect time to say goodbye
When I come back like Jordan wearin' the 4, 5
It ain't to play games with you
It's to aim at you-probably maim you
If I owe you I'll blow you to smithereens
Cocksucka', take one for your team
And I need you to remember one thing (one thing)
I came, I saw, I conquered
From record sales to sold-out concerts
So muh'fucka', if you want this encore
I need you to scream 'til your lungs get sore

 

(Come on)

I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless
Lost under the surface
Don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure
Of walking in your shoes
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take

I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
I'm becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me, and be less like you

I've become so numb
(Can I get a encore? Do you want more?) (more, more, more)
I've become so numb
(So, for one last time, I need y'all to roar)
One last time, I need y'all to roar

 

Izzo/In The End

This is fun

Ladies and gentlemen, put our hands together for the
astonishing…

Yo
H to the izz-O…V to the izz-A…

Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the 8th wonder of the world
The flow o' the century…always timeless…HOV!
(That's awesome)
Thank you for coming out tonight
You coulda been anywhere in the world, but you're here with us
We appreciate that…

Uhh, H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
Fo' shizzle my nizzle used to dribble down in VA
Was herbin' em in the home of the Terrapins
Got it dirt cheap for them
Plus if they was short wit' cheese I would work wit' them
Boy and we…got rid of that dirt for them
Wasn't born hustlers I was burpin' em
H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
Fo' sheezy my neezy keep my arms so freezy
Can't leave rap alone the game needs me
Haters want me clapped and chromed it ain't easy
Cops wanna knock me, D.A. wanna box me in
But somehow, I beat them charges like Rocky
H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
Not guilty, he who does not feel me is not real to me
Therefore he doesn't exist
So poof…vamoose son of a bitch

H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
Fo' shizzle my nizzle used to dribble down in V.A.
H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
That's the anthem get'cha damn hands up
H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
Not guilty ya'll got-ta feel me
H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
(check it out, yo)

(It starts with… One)
One thing, I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
(All I know)
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
(It's so unreal)
Didn't look out below
Watched the time go right out the window
Tried to hold on, but didn't even know
I wasted it all just to
(Watch you go)
I kept everything inside
And, even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be
A memory of a time when I tried so…

H-to-the-izz-O, v-to-the-izz-A, LP, jay-z, help me out
(aw, they having a good ‘ol time out there)
it starts with… h-to-the-izz-O, v-to-the-izz-A, LP, jay-z, help me out
(aw, they having a good ‘ol time out there)
it starts with… h-to-the-izz-O, v-to-the-izz-A, LP, jay-z, help me out
(yes, indeed, ladies and gentlemen)

 

Points of Authority/99 Problems/One Step Closer

If you havin' girl problems I feel bad for you, son
I got ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

You got it, Mike?

He's got the rap patrol on the gat patrol
Foes that wanna make sure his casket's closed
Rap critics who say he's “Money, Cash, Hoes”
He's from the hood, stupid, what type of facts are those?
If you grew up with holes in your sapitos
You'd be celebratin' the minute you was havin' dough
So fuck critics: You can kiss our whole asshole
If you don't like the lyrics you can press fast-forward
Got beef with radio if we don't play the show
They don't play our hits—we don't give a shit, so
All these mags tryin' to use our ass
So advertisers can give ‘em more cash for ads
Fuckers, I don't know what you take us as
Or understand the intelligence that Jay-Z has
From rags to riches, we ain't dumb
We got ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

Ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
If you havin' girl problems I feel bad for you, son
I got ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

The year is ninety-four and my trunk is raw
In the rear-view mirror is the mo'fuckin' law
I got two choices, y'all: Pull over the car or
Bounce on the double, put the pedal to the floor
Now I ain't tryin' to see no highway chase with Jake
Plus I got a few dollars—I can fight the case
So I pull over to the side of the road
And I heard: “Son, do you know what I'm stoppin' you for?”
‘Cause I'm young and I'm black and my hat's too low?
Do I look like a mind-reader, sir? I don't know
Am I under arrest or should I guess some more?
“You was doin' fifty-five in a fifty four
License and registration and step out of the car
Are you carryin' a weapon on you? I know a lot of you are”
I ain't steppin' out of shit
All my paper's legit
“Well, do you mind if I look around the car a little bit?”
Well, my glove compartment is locked—so's the trunk in the back
And I know my rights so you gon' need a warrant for that
“Now aren't you sharp as a tack? You some type-a lawyer or somethin'?
Somebody important or somethin'?”
Haha, I ain't passed the bar but I know a little bit
Enough that you won't illegally search my shit
“We'll see how smart you are when the K9's come”
I got ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

Ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
If you havin' girl problems I feel bad for you, son
I got ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

Ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
If you havin' girl problems I feel bad for you, son
I got ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

Ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
If you havin' girl problems I feel bad for you, son
I got ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one

Now, once upon a time not too long ago
A nigga like myself had to strong-arm a ho
This is not a ho in the sense of havin' pussy
But a pussy havin' no God damn sense tryin' to push me
I tried to ignore him and talk to the Lord
Pray for him ‘cause some fools just love to perform
You know the type: Loud as a motorbike
But wouldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight
The only thing that's gonna happen is I'm-a get to clappin'
And he and his boys gon' be yappin' to the captain
And there I go, trapped in the kit-kat again
Back through the system with the riff-raff again
Fiends on the floor scratchin' again
Paparazzis with they cameras, snappin' them
DA tried to give the nigga shaft again
Half a mil for bail ‘cause I'm African
All because this fool was harassin' them
Tryin' to play the boy like he's saccharine
But ain't nothin' sweet—‘bout I hold my gun
I got ninety-nine problems—bein' a bitch ain't one
Hit me

Ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
If you havin' girl problems I feel bad for you, son
I got ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

Ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
If you havin' girl problems I feel bad for you, son
I got ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

Shut up when I'm talkin' to you
Shut up
Shut up
Shut up
Shut up when I'm talkin' to you
Shut up
Shut up
Shut up
Shut up
I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
I got ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me
I need a little room to breathe
I got ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me
Everything you say to me
I got ninety-nine problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me
I need a little room to breathe
I got ninety-nine problems
And I'm about to break

 

Papercut vs Like A Pimp

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today.
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
Like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face that watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall

So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me
Right beneath my skin

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath the skin
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

I know I've got a face in me
Points out all my mistakes to me
You've got a face on the inside too
Your paranoia's probably worse
I don't know what set me off first
But I know what I can't stand
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is
I can't add up to what you can but
Everybody has a face that they hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face that watches every time they lie
A face that laughs every time they fall

So you know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is watching you too
Right inside your skin

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath the skin
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

Hybrid Theory

Papercut

 

 

Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed / but
I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
It's like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face that watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall
(And watches everything)
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me / right underneath my skin
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin
I know I've got a face in me
Points out all my mistakes to me
You've got a face on the inside too

The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin
The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back (The sun)
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin (I feel the light betray me)
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back (The sun)

One Step Closer

 

 

I cannot take this anymore
I'm saying everything I've said before
All these words they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Less I hear the less you'll say
You'll find that out anyway
Just like before
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break
I find the answers aren't so clear
Wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Nothing seems to go away
Over and over again
Just like before
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
SHUT UP WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU
SHUT UP / SHUT UP / SHUT UP
SHUT UP WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU
SHUT UP / SHUT UP / SHUT UP
SHUT UP
I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

 

 

 

With You

 

 

I woke up in a dream today
To the cold of the static, and put my cold feet on the floor
Forgot all about yesterday
Remembering I'm pretending to be where I'm not anymore
A little taste of hypocrisy
And I'm left in the wake of the mistake, slow to react
So even though you're so close to me
You're still so distant
And I can't bring you back
It's true the way I feel
Was promised by your face
The sound of your voice
Painted on my memories
Even if you're not with me
I'm with you
You
Now I see / keeping everything inside
You
Now I see
Even when I close my eyes
I hit you and you hit me back
We fall to the floor, the rest of the day stands still
Fine line between this and that
When things go wrong I pretend the past isn't real
Now I'm trapped in this memory
And I'm left in the wake of the mistake, slow to react
So even though you're close to me
You're still so distant
And I can't bring you back
It's true the way I feel
Was promised by your face
The sound of your voice
Painted on my memories
Even if you're not with me
I'm with you
You
Now I see / keeping everything inside
You
Now I see
Even when I close my eyes
I'm with you
You
Now I see / keeping everything inside
You
Now I see
Even when I close my eyes
No
No matter how far we've come
I can't wait to see tomorrow
No matter how far we've come, I
I can't wait to see tomorrow
With you
You
Now I see / keeping everything inside
You
Now I see
Even when I close my eyes
I'm with you
You
Now I see / keeping everything inside
You
Now I see
Even when I close my eyes

 

 

 

Points Of Authority

 

 

Forfeit the game
Before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame
And puts your name to shame
Cover up your face
You can't run the race
The pace is too fast
You just won't last
You love the way I look at you
While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through
You take away if I give in
My life
My pride is broken
You like to think you're never wrong
(You live what you've learned)
You have to act like you're someone
(You live what you've learned)
You want someone to hurt like you
(You live what you've learned)
You want to share what you have been through
(You live what you've learned)
You love the things I say I'll do
The way I hurt myself again just to get back at you
You take away when I give in
My life
My pride is broken
You like to think you're never wrong
(You live what you've learned)
You have to act like you're someone
(You live what you've learned)
You want someone to hurt like you
(You live what you've learned)
You want to share what you have been through
(You live what you've learned)
Forfeit the game
Before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame
And puts your name to shame
Cover up your face
You can't run the race

Crawling

 

 

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real
There's something inside me
That pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing
This lack of self control I fear
Is never ending, controlling
I can't seem to find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence)
(I'm convinced that there's)
(Just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before / so insecure
Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real
Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me
Distracting, reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It's haunting how I can't seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence)
(I'm convinced that there's)
(Just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before / so insecure
Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real
Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing, confusing what is real
There's something inside me
That pulls beneath the surface
Consuming
(Confusing what is real)
This lack of self control I fear
Is never ending, controlling
(Confusing what is real)

 

 

Runaway

 

 

Graffiti decorations
Under a sky of dust
A constant wave of tension
On top of broken trust
The lessons that you taught me
I learn were never true
Now I find myself in question
(They point the finger at me again)
Guilty by association
(You point the finger at me again)
I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wondering why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind
Paper bags and angry voices
Under a sky of dust
Another wave of tension
Has more than filled me up
All my talk of taking action
These words were never true
Now I find myself in question
(They point the finger at me again)
Guilty by association
(You point the finger at me again)
I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wondering why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind
I'm gonna run away and never say goodbye
(Gonna run away, gonna run away / gonna run away,gonna run away)
I'm gonna run away and never wonder why
(Gonna run away, gonna run away / gonna run away,gonna run away)
I'm gonna run away and open up my mind
(Gonna run away, gonna run away / gonna run away)
MIND
(Gonna run away, gonna run away / gonna run away)
MIND
(Gonna run away, gonna run away / gonna run away)
MIND
(Gonna run away, gonna run away / gonna run away)
I wanna run away
Never say goodbye
I wanna know the truth
Instead of wondering why
I wanna know the answers
No more lies
I wanna shut the door
And open up my mind
I wanna run away
And open up my mind
I wanna run away
And open up my mind
I wanna run away
And open up my mind
I wanna run away
And open up my mind

 

 

By Myself

 

 

What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Do I follow my instincts blindly?
Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams?
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?
Do I sit here and try to stand it?
Or do I try to catch them red-handed?
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?
Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin
I make the right moves but I'm lost within
I put on my daily facade but then
I just end up getting hurt again
By myself (MYSELF)
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can't rely on myself (MYSELF)
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can't rely on myself (MYSELF)
I can't hold on
To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in
If I turn my back, I'm defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on then they'll
Take from me 'till everything is gone
If I let them go I'll be outdone
But if I try to catch them I'll be outrun
If I'm killed by the questions like a cancer
Then I'll be buried in the silence of the answer
By myself (MYSELF)
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can't rely on myself (MYSELF)
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can't rely on myself (MYSELF)
I can't hold on
To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in
How do you think I've lost so much
I'm so afraid that I'm out of touch
How do you expect / I will know what to do
When all I know Is what you tell me to?
Don't you
KNOW
I can't tell you how to make it
GO
No matter what I do, how hard I
TRY
I can't seem to convince myself
WHY
I'm stuck on the outside
Don't you
KNOW
I can't tell you how to make it
GO
No matter what I do, how hard I
TRY
I can't seem to convince myself
WHY
I'm stuck on the outside
I can't hold on
To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in
I can't hold on
To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in

 

 

In The End

 

 

(It starts with one)
One thing I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
All I know
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
It's so unreal
Didn't look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on but didn't even know
Wasted it all just to
Watch you go
I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
One thing, I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To remind myself how
I tried so hard
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I'm surprised it got so (far)
Things aren't the way they were before
You wouldn't even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me
In the end
You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There's only one thing you should know
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There's only one thing you should know
I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter

 

 

A Place For My Head

 

 

I watch how the moon sits in the sky in the dark night
Shining with the light from the sun
The sun doesn't give light to the moon assuming
The moon's going to owe it one
It makes me think of how you act to me
You do favors and then rapidly
You just turn around and start asking me
about things that you want back from me
I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place, to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
(You'll see it's not meant to be)
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head
Maybe someday I'll be just like you and
Step on people like you do and
Run away the people I thought I knew
I remember back then who you were
You used to be calm, used to be strong
Used to be generous but you should've known
That you'd wear out your welcome
Now you see how quiet it is, all alone
I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger (La, la, la, la)
Sick of you acting like I owe you this (Oh)
Find another place, to feed your greed - (La, la, la, la)
While I find a place to rest (Oh)
I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place, to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
(You'll see it's not meant to be)
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
GO AWAY
YOU TRY TO TAKE THE BEST OF ME
GO AWAY
YOU TRY TO TAKE THE BEST OF ME
GO AWAY
YOU TRY TO TAKE THE BEST OF ME
GO AWAY
YOU TRY TO TAKE THE BEST OF ME
GO AWAY
I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
(You'll see it's not meant to be)
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head
SHUT! UP! WHAT!
I am so sick of the tension, sick of the hunger (SHUT)
Sick of you acting like I owe you this (UP)
Find another place, to feed your greed -
While I find a place to rest
I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger (WHAT)
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place, to feed your greed - (STAY AWAY)
While I find a place to rest (FROM ME)

 

 

Forgotten

 

 

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory won't escape me
But why should I care?
From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory won't escape me
But why should I care?
There's a place so dark you can't see the end
Skies cock back and shock that which can't defend
The rain then sends dripping / an acidic question
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then with the eyes shut / looking thought the rust and rot
And dust / a small spot of light floods the floor
And pours over the rusted world of pretend
The eyes ease open and its dark again
From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory won't escape me
But why should I care?
In the memory you'll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up
Moving all around / screaming of the ups and downs
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
The wheels go round and the sunset creeps behind
Street lamps, chain-link and concrete
A little piece of paper with a picture drawn
Floats on down the street till the wind is gone
The memory now is like the picture was then
When the paper's crumpled up it can't be perfect again
From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory won't escape me
But why should I care?
From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory won't escape me
But why should I care
In the memory you'll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up
Now you got me caught in the act
You bring the thought back
I'm telling you that
I see it right through you
Now you got me caught in the act
YOU BRING THE THOUGHT BACK
I'm telling you that
I SEE IT RIGHT THROUGH YOU [x2]
Now you got me caught in the act (Oh, oh)
YOU BRING THE THOUGHT BACK (Oh, oh)
I'm telling you that (Oh, oh)
I SEE IT RIGHT THROUGH YOU (Oh, oh) [x4]
In the memory you'll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up [x2]

 

 

Cure For The Itch

 

 

Folks, we have a very special guest for you tonight.
I'd like to introduce
MR. HAHN
Let's hear it for the great Mr. Hahn!
And now, for a lesson in rhythm management.
Let's begin.
Alright now, wasn't that fun?
Let's try something else.

 

 

Pushing Me Away

 

 

I've lied to you
The same way that I always do
This is the last smile
That I'll fake for the sake of being with you
(Everything falls apart
Even the people who never frown
Eventually break down)
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
(Everything has to end
You'll soon find we're out of time left
To watch it all unwind)
The sacrifice is never knowing
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see you're testing me pushes me away
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away
I've tried like you
To do everything you wanted too
This is the last time
I'll take the blame for the sake of being with you
(Everything falls apart
Even the people who never frown
Eventually break down)
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
(Everything has to end
You'll soon find we're out of time left
To watch it all unwind)
The sacrifice is never knowing
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see you're testing me pushes me away
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see you're testing me pushes me away
(We're all out of time
This is how we find how it all unwinds)
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
(We're all out of time
This is how we find how it all unwinds)
The sacrifice is never knowing
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see you're testing me pushes me away
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see you're testing me pushes me away
Pushes me away

 

 

 

High Voltage (Reprise)

 

 

"You know what I mean?
You could put a label on a life
Put a label on a lifestyle"
(Sometimes)
"You know
Put a label on how you wake up every morning
And go to bed at night"
Hybrid
I've been digging into crates ever since I was living in space
Before the ratrace, before monkeys had human traits
I mastered numerology and Big Bang theology
Performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology
Invented the mic so I could start blessing it
Chin-checking kids to make my point like an impressionist
Many men have tried to shake us
But I twist mic cords to double-helixes
And show them what I'm made of
I buckle knees like leg-braces
Cast a spell of instrumentalness on all of you emcees who hate us
So you can try on, leave you without a shoulder to cry on
From now to infinity let icons be by-gones
I fire-bomb, ghostly notes haunt this
I tried threats but moved onto a promise
I stomp shit with or without an accomplice
And run the gauntlet with whoever that wants this
High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringing you up and taking you down
High voltage
Coming at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
Akira
I put a kink in the backbones of clones with microphones
Never satisfy my rhyme jones
Spraying bright day over what you might say
My blood type's Krylon, Technicolor Type-A
On highways right with roadrage
Cages of wind and cages of tin that bounce all around
Surround sound devouring the scene
Subliminal gangrene, overall the same things
Singsong karaoke copy bullshit
Break bones verbally with sticks-and-stone tactics
Fourth dimension, combat convention
Write rhymes at ease while the track stands at attention
Meant to put you away with the pencil, pistol
Official sixteen-line-a-rhyme missile
While you risk your all I pick out all your flaws
Spin rah-blah-blah-blah, you can say you saw
High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringing you up and taking you down
High voltage
Coming at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringing you up and taking you down
High voltage
Coming at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
"And, like, the rock and rap
You know what I mean
People acting like, you know
'Wow, that's a new invention'
That shit ain't new
It's constantly evolving
We're constantly changing"
(Sometimes)
"There's a lot of change
Everybody's always up with the labels
There ain't no label for this shit
They're always going to try
To put a label on it
To try to create something
So they can water it down"
Sometimes I feel like a prophet
Misunderstood, under the gun like a new disease
Sometimes I feel like a prophet
Misunderstood, under the gun like a new disease
High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringing you up and taking you down
High voltage
Coming at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringing you up and taking you down
High voltage
Coming at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringing you up and taking you down
High voltage
Coming at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringing you up and taking you down
High voltage
Coming at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
"You know what I mean?
You can put a label on a lifestyle (label on a lifestyle)"

 

 

 

My December

 

 

This is my December
This is my time of the year
This is my December
This is all so clear
This is my December
This is my snow covered home
This is my December
This is me alone
And I,
Just wish that I didn't feel
Like there was something I missed
And I,
Take back all the things I said
To make you feel like that
And I,
Just wish that I didn't feel
Like there was something I missed
And I,
Take back all the things that I said to you
And I'd give it all away
Just to have somewhere to go to
Give it all away
To have someone to come home to
This is my December
These are my snow covered trees
This is me pretending
This is all I need
And I,
Just wish that I didn't feel
Like there was something I missed
And I,
Take back all the things I said
To make you feel like that
And I,
Just wish that I didn't feel
Like there was something I missed
And I,
Take back all the things that I said to you
And I'd give it all away
Just to have somewhere to go to
Give it all away
To have someone to come home to
This is my December
This is my time of the year
This is my December
This is all so clear
Give it all away (I)
Just to have somewhere to go to (I)
Give it all away (I)
To have someone to come home to (I)
Give it all away (I)
Just to have somewhere to go to (I)
Give it all away (I)
To have someone to come home to (I)

That's not what he says, though. Listen to the song. He very clearly says hand. He said rhyme when they played the song in 2006, so that's where he got that lyric from. On the sampler tape, though, he says hand.

 

 

 

Hybrid Theory EP

 

Carousel

Ah

 

She can't hide no matter how hard she tries
Her secret disguised behind the lies
And at night she cries away her pride
With eyes shut tight staring at her inside
All her friends know why she can't sleep at night
All her family asking if she's alright
All she wants to do is get rid of this hell
Well all she's got to do is stop kidding herself
She can only fool herself for so long
She can only fool herself for so long
She can only fool herself for so long
(I'm too weak to face me)
She can only fool herself

I never know
Just why you run
So far away
Far away from me
I never know
Just why you run
So far away
Far away from me

When it comes to how to live his life he can't be told
Says he's got it all under control
Thinks he knows it's not a problem he's stuck with
But in reality it'd be a problem to just quit
An addict and he can't hold the reins
The pain is worse cause his friends have it the same
Tries to slow down the problem he's got
But can't get off the carousel until he makes it stop
He can only fool himself for so long
He can only fool himself for so long
He can only fool himself for so long
(I'm too weak to face me)
He can only fool himself

I never know
Just why you run
So far away
Far away from me
I never know
Just why you run
So far away
Far away from me

 

(Ah)

(Fly with me under the wings I gave you)
Try to be closer to me and I'll save you
(Fly with me under the wings I gave you)
Try to be closer to me and I'll save you

I never know
Just why you run
So far away
Far away from me
I never know
Just why you run
So far away
Far away from me
I never know
Just why you run
So far away
Far away from me
I never know
Just why you run
So far away
Far away from me

 

Technique (Short)

You must exercise the proper technique...

 

Step Up

Yo

Watch as the room rocks
Mentally moonwalk
Mixed media slang
Banging in your boom box verbal violence
Lyrical stylist
In a time when rock hip hop rhymes are childish
You can't tempt me with rhymes that are empty
Rapping to a beat doesn't make you an MC
With your lack of skill and facility
You're killing me
And a DJ in the group just for credibility
I heard that some of you are getting help with your rhymes
You're not an emcee if someone else writes your lines
And rapping over rock doesn't make you a pioneer
'Cause rock and hip hop have collaborated for years
But now they're getting randomly mixed and matched up
All after a fast buck and all the tracks suck
So how does it stack up? None of it's real
You want to be an emcee you've got to study the skill

Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Bring it to you every time like this?
Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Step, step up, step, step up

So you pick up a pen and write yourself a new identity
But mentally you don't have the hip hop energy
With a tendency to make up stories
Sounding like the only hip hop you've heard is top 40 (Top 40)
And your record company is completely missing it
All the kids are dissing it for not being legitimate
So in a battle you can't hack it
React with whack shit
And get smacked with verbal back flips
Get your ass kicked by fabulous battle catalysts
It's taken decades for emcees to establish this
You're new to hip hop and welcome if you're serious
But not on the mic
Leave that to the experienced

(Using the waves of sound, the true master paralyzes his opponents, leaving him vulnerable to attack)

Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Bring it to you every time like this?
Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Step, step up, step, step up

Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Bring it to you every time like this?
Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Step, step up, step, step up

Step up

(After years of pain staking research by the world's leading sound scientists, we here at the sound institute have invented a reliable audio weapons system. Actual movement of musical sound in space used to carefully attack and neutralize the cellular structure of the human body, and the question must be asked.)

Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Bring it to you every time like this?
Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Step, step up, step, step up

 

Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Bring it to you every time like this?
Who can rock a rhyme like this?

Step, step up, step, step up

Step up

 

(Step up to the microphone)

(And you do it like this)

(And you do it like this)

(Step up to the microphone)

(And you do it like this)

(Step up to the microphone)

(And you do it like this)

(Step up to the microphone)

(And you do it like this)

 

And One

Where should I start
Disjointed heart
I've got no commitment
To my own flesh and blood
Left all alone
Far from my home
No one to hear me, to heal my ill heart, I

Keep it locked up inside
I cannot express
To the point
I've regressed

If anger's a gift, then I guess I've been blessed, I

Keep it locked up inside
Keep my distance from your lies

It's too late to love me now
You have never shown me
It's too late to love me now
You don't even know me

Breaking a part of my heart to find release
Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace
Breaking a part of my heart to find release
Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace

Breaking a part of my heart to find release (Break)
Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace (Me)
Breaking a part of my heart to find release (Too)
Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace

Keep it locked up inside
Keep my distance from your lies

Breaking a part of my heart to find release (Break)
Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace (Me)
Breaking a part of my heart to find release (Too)
Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace
Breaking a part of my heart to find release
Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace
Breaking a part of my heart to find release
Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace

Keep my distance
Keep my distance
Keep my distance
Keep my distance

Spit drips from the jaw of the witless witness
Cryptic colloquialisms shift your mid rift
Dog paddle through a bog of shadows and smog with my
Thought catalog: analogue rap battle log
Keep my distance, and fear resistance, hurt by persistence
The twisted web of tangled lies

Strangles my hope to waste and numbs the taste
And I'm forced to face these hate crimes

Against the state of being
Feeling the weightlessness press me to the ceiling
Reeling around rooms
Riding a bubble of sound
Tuned to the frequency making your
Chest shake with every boom
Involuntary muscle contraction
Ignoring your neck's breaking
Musical gas fume euphoria
The sound pounds to make the dead flush
To hand you a head rush with read thoughts and said stuff

 

High Voltage

Just do something to tell you who I am, ya know?

 

Uh (x38)

It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out (Ah)
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out

I've been taking into crates ever since I was livin' in space
Before the ratrace, before monkeys had human traits
Mastered numerology and bigbang theology
Performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology
Invented the mic so I could start blessin it
And chincheckin kids to make my point like an impressionist
Many men have tried to shake us
But I twist mic cords to double helixes and show them what I'm made of
I buckle knees like leg braces
Cast the spell of instrumental-ness and all of the emcees that hate us
So try on, leave you without a shoulder to cry on
From now to infinity let icons be bygones
I fire bomb ghostly notes haunt this
I've tried threats but moved on to a promise
I stomp shit with or without an accomplice
(Mixed media)
The stamp of approval is on this

It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out

Akira, put a kink in the backbones of clones with microphones
Never satisfy my rhyme jones
Sprayin' bright day over what you might say
Blood type krylon
Technicolor type A
On highways right with road rage I'm patient to win
The cage and the tin to bounce all around
In surround sound devouring the scene
Subliminal gangrene paintings
Overall the same things sing songs karaoke copy madness
Break bones verbally with sticks and stone tactics
Fourth dimension, combat convention
Write rhymes at ease while the tracks stand at attention (Attention)
Meant to put you away with the pencil
Pistol, official, 16 line rhyme missile
While you risk your all, I pick out all your flaws
Spittin', raw blah blah blah blah
You can say you saw

It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock (Ah)
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out

 

Uh (x72)

It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out (Ah)
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out

Part Of Me

Part of me won‘t go away
Everyday reminded how much I hate it
Weighed it against the consequences
Can‘t live without it so it‘s senseless
Wanna cut it out of my soul
And just live with the gaping hole
Take control of my life
And wash out all the burnt taste
I made the problems in the first place
Hang my head low
Cause it‘s part of me
You hardly see
Right next to the heart of me
Hurting me
Wounds soon scar
New cuts cover where the old ones are
And now I‘m sick of this
I can‘t stand the sandpaper thoughts that grate on my sanity
I rather not even be
Than the man that‘s staring in the mirror through me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

I feel it everyday
I feel I made my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

(Freedom can be frightening if you've never felt it)

Once it‘s been dealt with you feel like you've been touched by something angelic
And then melted down into a pool of peace
Cease to be the animal you used to be
Remove the broken parts you know were wrong
And feel the calm when the problem's all gone
And then you start to see another piece of yourself that you can't let be
Memories of the last fight to free yourself
Taken to the depths of the bottom of the well
And now you know that you can choose to lose the part in your heart
Where your insides bruise
You can live if you're willing to
Put a stop to just what's killing you

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

I feel it everyday
I feel I made my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

(Alive in me, inside of me, a part turns grey and rots away silently)

(Alive in me, inside of me, a part turns grey and rots away silently)

This part of me won't go away, part of me won't go away

 

(Oh, yeah)
Everywhere I look around I see how everything aught to be (Oh)
Every time I see myself I see there's always something wrong with me (Yeah)

Everywhere I look around I see how everything aught to be (Oh)
Every time I see myself I see there's always something wrong with me (Yeah)

I feel it everyday
I feel I made my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

I feel it everyday
I feel I made my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside, swallowing me
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside, swallowing me

 

 

 

Hybrid Theory Demos

 

Blue

In the dark days, I'll part ways with the blame.
Trying to maintain, but it's still all the same, It's all a game
Hear my name in the rain and the pain, I wear on my face with a tear stain
You feign fondness, honestly it's time to give you a piece of my mind
And show you that you're blind
And in the design of the world I call mine
Know that you can't stand on both sides of the line.

Everything is my fault
(It's all the same, just pass me the blame)
The problems have two faces

Everything is my fault
(It's all the same, just pass me the blame)
The problems have two faces

Pass all the blame over to me, it will come eventually
Take the time out to examine all these questions honestly

With my eyes shut, I'm seeing the truth in your words
The absurd, slurred into beauty to be heard
You swim through deceit, the lies that you tell
The stories you sell, knowing you well, I keep distance
And every instance you keep your thoughts concealed
What I feel, just another spoke in the wheel
All or nothing, thrown down and trampled by your heel
And eaten away by my own version of the real

Everything is my fault
(It's all the same, just pass me the blame)
The problems have two faces
Everything is my fault
(It's all the same, just pass me the blame)
The problems have two faces

Pass all the blame over to me, it will come eventually
Take the time out to examine all these questions honestly

Who is to blame?

Nothing, thrown down
(It's all the same, just pass me the blame)
Trampled by your heal
(Play the game and wear a tear stain)
Eaten by my own
(Pass the blame 'cause you'll feel it if you don't)
Version of the real
(Always to blame)

Nothing, thrown down

By Myself (2-Track Demo)

What do I do to ignore what's behind me?
Do I follow my fate to escape blindly?
Do I hide my pride away from these bad dreams
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?
Do I let it go and try to stand it
Or do I try to catch them red handed?
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness
Or do I trust none and live life in loneliness?
Cause sunlight burns the skin of sleeping men
I make the right turns but I'm lost within
I put on my daily faciade but then
I just end up getting hurt again by myself

(Myself)
I ask why
(But in my mind I find)
I can't rely on myself
(Myself)

(But in my mind I find)
I can't rely on myself

I can't hold on
(To what I want when I'm stretched so thin)
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
(To anything, watching everything spin)
With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I turn my back I'm defenseless
And to give into fate seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on
Then they'll take from me 'til everything is gone
If I let them go i'll be outdone
But if I try to catch them i'll be outrun
If i'm killed by the questions like a cancer
Then i'll be buried in the silence of the answer by myself

Carousel (8-Track Demo)

(Ah)

She can't hide no matter how hard she tries
Her secret disguise behind the lies
And at night she cries away her pride
With eyes shut tight and staring at her insides
All her friends know why she can't sleep at night
All her family asking if she's alright
All she wants to do is get rid of this hell
Well, all she's got to do is stop kidding herself

She can only fool herself for so long
She can only fool herself for so long
(I'm too weak to face me)

I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me
I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me

When it comes to how to live his life, he can't be told
Says he's got it all under control
Thinks he knows it's not a problem he's stuck with
But in reality, it'd be a problem to just quit
An addict, and he can't hold the reigns
The pain is worse, 'cause his friends have it the same
Tries to slow down the problem he's got
But can't get off the carousel until he makes it stop

He can only fool himself for so long
He can only fool himself for so long
(I'm too weak to face me)

I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me
I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me

 

Fly with me under the wings I gave you
Try to be closer to me, I'll save you
Fly with me under the wings I gave you (Ah)
Try to be closer to me, I'll save you

Just follow me
I never know just why you run
And I'll show you what you want to see
The part you hide from what's inside
Just follow me
So far away, away from me
And I'll show you what you want to see

I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me

Crawling (6-Track Demo)

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming
Confusing
This lack of self control I fear is never ending
Controlling
I can't seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
I've felt this way before
So insecure...

Fear is how I fall

Discomfort, endlessly has laid itself upon me

To find myself again
My walls are closing in

Crawling (9-Track Demo)

Ahh!
I hate you so much right now

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is powerful
Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
(Beneath the surface)
Consuming (consuming)
Confusing (Confusing)
This lack of self control I found so overwhelming
(So overwhelming)
Controlling (controlling)
I can't seem
To find the strength within
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure...

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is powerful
Confusing what is real

Discomfort, endlessly has laid itself upon me
(Itself upon me)
Distracting (distracting)
Reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
(My own reflection)
It's haunting (its haunting) how I can't seem
To find the strength within
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence and Im convinced that theres just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure...

Rain Drops put the rhythm on the pavement
And drip from the black top into the basement
Traces of the rain pervade this
To erase your hate and take this from the fakeness
Rain Drops put the rhythm on the pavement
And drip from the black top into the basement
Traces of the rain pervade this
To erase your hate and take this from the fakeness

To find the strength within, my walls are closing in
I've felt this way before
So insecure...
(Rain Drops put the rhythm on the pavement
And drip from the black top into the basement
Traces of the rain pervade this
To erase your hate and take this from the fakeness
Rain Drops put the rhythm on the pavement
And drip from the black top into the basement
Traces of the rain pervade this
To erase your hate and take this from the fakeness)

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is powerful
Confusing what is real

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is powerful
Confusing what is real

 

Dedicated

I have a dream of a scene between the green hills
Clouds pull away and the sunlight's revealed
People don't talk about keeping it real
It's understood that they actually will
And intoxicated and stimulated emcees
Staring in the trees, paranoid, are gone in the breeze

Watch them flee, hip-hop heads
Take a walk with me and what you'll see
Is a land where the sand's made up of crushed up wax
And the sky beyond you is krylon blue
And everybody speaks in a dialect of rhyme
And emcees have left materialism behind them
Meanwhile I just grip my mic
And hope me and my team make it through alright
Because say what you will, and say what you might
But don't ignore who it's for at the end of the night

Because this is dedicated to the kids
Dedicated to wherever music lives
Dedicated to those tired of the same ol' same
And dedicated to the people advancin' the game
What's real is the kids who know that something's wrong
What's real is the kids who think they don't belong
What's real is the kids who have nowhere to run
Who are hiding in the shadows waiting for the sun

I've seen a lot of shit, I've talked to a bum
Out on sunset strip, he asked me, "How would you feel
If everybody acted like you didn't exist
You'd lose your grip, probably eventually flip."
So let it be known, the only reason that we do this
Is so you can pick it up and just bang your head to it
While emcees fight to see who can be the commonest
We float overhead like a space odyssey monolith
Over seeing the game,
Over being part of the same ol' thing
It's all gonna change in a hurricane of darkness and pain
And acidic rain and promises that you won't do it again
Meanwhile I just grip my mic
And hope me and my team make it through alright
Because say what you will, and say what you might
But don't ignore who it's for at the end of the night

 

Because this is dedicated to the kids
Dedicated to wherever music lives
Dedicated to those tired of the same ol' same
And dedicated to the people advancin' the game
What's real is the kids who know that something's wrong
What's real is the kids who think they don't belong
What's real is the kids who have nowhere to run
Who are hiding in the shadows waiting for the sun

Pulling me close, the shadow is warm inside
This is where I feel at home, this is my place to hide
Pulling me close, the shadow is warm inside
This is where I feel at home, this is my place to hide

 

This is dedicated to the kids
Dedicated to wherever music lives
Dedicated to those tired of the same ol' same
And dedicated to the people advancin' the game
What's real is the kids who know that something's wrong
What's real is the kids who think they don't belong
What's real is the kids who have nowhere to run
Who are hiding in the shadows waiting for the sun

This is dedicated to the kids
Dedicated to wherever music lives
Dedicated to those tired of the same ol' same
And dedicated to the people advancin' the game
What's real, everybody who doesn't feel safe
What's real, everybody who knows they're out of place

What's real, anybody with have nowhere to run

Who hides in the shadows waiting for the sun

 

Dust Brothers

I woke up in a dream today
To the cold of the static, and put my cold feet on the floor
Forgot all about yesterday
Remembering I'm pretending to be where I'm not anymore
A little taste of hypocrisy
And I'm left in the wake of the mistake, slow to react
Even though you're so close to me
You're still so distant
And I can't bring you back

It's true the way I feel
Was promised by your face
The sound of your voice
Painted on my memories
Even if you're not with me

I'm with you
With you

I hit you and you hit me back
We fall to the floor, the rest of the day stands still
Fine line between this and that
When things go wrong I pretend the past isn't real
I'm trapped in this memory
And I'm left in the wake of the mistake, slow to react
So even though you're close to me
You're still so distant
And I can't bring you back

It's true the way I feel
Was promised by your face
The sound of your voice
Painted on my memories
Even if you're not with me

I'm with you
With you
With you
With you

No matter how far we've come
I can't wait to see tomorrow
No matter how far we've come, I
I can't wait to see tomorrow

With you
No matter how far we've come
With you
I can't wait to see tomorrow
With you
No matter how far we've come, I
With you
I can't wait to see tomorrow

With you
I can't wait to see tomorrow
With you
I can't wait to see tomorrow
With you
I can't wait to see tomorrow
With you
I can't wait to see tomorrow

 

Esaul (2-Track Demo)

(Ohh..)
Riding with the head full of buckets of red
And what I said still stuck in my head
But mis-led thinking the things I'd do would make you never wanna come back
But an on-front attack
You could never run from that
Being trapped in this with you
Something that I never wanted to do
But through it all you got to see
That where I want to be is over the pen again
Letting it out of me
In the center of the day, in a dream
Seeing all my thoughts
Getting lost in between
Realizing one
Not the way that it seems
And the killing of the killer with a head full of screams

I wanna live in another place
Where no one can say that I live for them
(Start seeing its not meant to be for me)
I wanna be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head

And the second it starts
We're gonna be crushed when it all falls apart
Knowing no matter how low
Hoping that you won't know the strain it puts to me
Seeing what you've done
And consequently
I've run away, just hidden again
Within the boundaries of a nameless
Don't want me to say this
But you're dragging me down
Getting lost in the chaos, being tossed around
Singing again to myself, a head full of hectic (Oh)
Hope that some day you'll regret this
Everything's the wrong place, the wrong time
Adding to the panic in my confine
Singing again to myself, a head full of hectic (Oh)
Hope that some day you'll regret this
Everything's the wrong place, the wrong time
Adding to the panic of my confine

I wanna live in another place
Where no one can say that I live for them
(Start seeing its not meant to be for me)
I wanna be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head

You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away

You try to take the best of me

Esaul (LPU 11)

Riding with a head full of buckets of red and what they said still stuck in the head
A thoroughbred thoroughly bled
And led to the land of the mental combats following a front attack so you can never run from that
The planet sizing up the horizon
It's smaller than a fly stand
I'm a lyrical lamp
The power that i got on my cynical hand
With a pen once again
Swimming in the center of the hit or the miss
Reeling in my thoughts getting lost in the mist
Realizing one not the size of a fist
And the killing of the killer with the flick of the wrist

I wanna live in another place where no one can say that I lived for them
(Still see, it's not meant to be for me)
I wanna be in the energy, not with the enemy, a place for my head

The second it's gone the weapon of time is stronger than a nuclear bomb
Eternity-you have not- So in that you can't fight nor flee
Still you'd be around if it wasn't for me
Way back first whatever my friends
That you see the attraction of the payback
Don't want me to say that
Playback the thing now
Getting lost in the chaos tossing it down
Singing again to myself electric neck twitch (Oh)
Hungry for a head full of hectic
Accept this, doing double-duty on time
Adding to the panic in my confine

Singing again to myself electric neck twitch (Oh)
Hungry for a head full of hectic
Accept this, doing double-duty on time
Adding to the panic in my confine


I wanna live in another place where no one can say that I lived for them
(Still see, it's not meant to be for me)
I wanna be in the energy, not with the enemy, a place for my head

Soon the Aztec moon will heat my room

Heal my wounds

Soon the Aztec moon will heat my room

Heal my wounds

Soon the Aztec moon will heat my room

Heal my wounds

Soon the Aztec moon will heat my room

Heal my wounds

Soon the Aztec moon will heat my room

Heal my wounds

Soon the Aztec moon will heat my room

Heal my wounds

Soon the Aztec moon will heat my room

Heal my wounds

Soon the Aztec moon will heat my room

Heal my wounds

I wanna live in another place where no one can say that I lived for them
(Still see, it's not meant to be for me)
I wanna be in the energy, not with the enemy, a place for my head

Burn
Burn

Burn

Singing again to myself electric neck twitch
Hungry for a head full of hectic
Accept this, doing double-duty on time
Adding to the panic of my confine

Forgotten (LPU 12)

From the top to the bottom
(Bottom to top I stop)
At the core I've forgotten
(In the middle of my thoughts)
Taken far from my safety
(Saw a light in the sky)
The sun will escape me
(So why did I try?)
From the top to the bottom
(Bottom to top I stop)
At the core I've forgotten
(In the middle of my thoughts)
Taken far from my safety
(Saw a light in the sky)
The sun will escape me
(So why do I try?)

From the thread to the needle, middle to end
When skies cock back and shock that which couldn't defend
The rain then sends dripping an acidic questions
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then with the eyes tightly shut
looking through the rust and rot and dust
A spot of light floods the floor
And pours itself upon the world of pretend
And the eyes ease open and its dark again

From the top to the bottom
(Bottom to top I stop)
At the core I've forgotten
(In the middle of my thoughts)
Taken far from my safety
(Saw a light in the sky)
The sun will escape me
(So why did I try?)

From the top to the bottom
(Bottom to top I stop)
At the core I've forgotten
(In the middle of my thoughts)
Taken far from my safety
(Saw a light in the sky)
The sun will escape me
(So why do I try?)


In a minute you'll find me
Eyes burn me up
You say you'll never forgive me
But the lies have piled up

Moving all around
Screaming of the ups and downs
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
And as the wheels go round and the sunset creeps past the
street lamps, cars, chain-link and concrete
A window then grows and catches the eye
Cries out a yellow light as it passes it by
A small black figure sits in front of a box
Inside a box of rock with the needles on top
Nothing stops in this land of the pain
The sane lose not knowing they were part of the game
And then the insides change
The box stays the same
The shame, shovel up the pieces of the pain
You can try to hide yourself in this world of pretend
But when the paper's crumpled up it can't be perfect again

From the top to the bottom
(Bottom to top I stop)
At the core I've forgotten
(In the middle of my thoughts)
Taken far from my safety
(Saw a light in the sky)
The sun will escape me
(So why do I try?)

In a minute you'll find me
Eyes burn me up
You say you'll never forgive me
But the lies have piled up

Now I got you caught in the act
You better step back
I'm telling you that I see it right through you
Now I got you caught in the act
You better step back
I'm telling you that I see it right through you

Now I got you caught in the act
You better step back (BACK)

Now I got you got in the act
You better step back
I'm telling you that I see it right through you

One Step Closer (Remix Demo)

I'm about to (to...)
I'm about to break (break...)

I'm about to break
I need room to breathe

I need room to breathe

I need room to breathe

I cannot take this anymore
Saying everything I've said before
All these words, they make no sense
I found bliss in ignorance
Less I hear, the less you say
But you'll find that out anyway

I find the answers aren't so clear
Wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts, they make no sense
I found bliss in ignorance
Nothing seems to go away
Over and over again

Over and over again

Over and over again

Over and over again

Over and over again
Just like before...

Everything you say to me
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
I'm about to...break

I'm about to break (break...)

Shut up when I'm talking to you
Shut up
Shut up
Shut up
Shut up when I'm talking to you
Shut up
Shut up
Shut up
Shut up
I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
And I'm about to...

Takes me one step closer to the edge, and I'm about to break
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge, I'm about to break
Takes me one step closer to the edge, and I'm about to break
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge, I'm about to...

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge, and I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge, and I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge, and I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge, and I'm about to... (break)
Break

 

Papercut (Demo)

Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed/but
I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
It's like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face that watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall
(And watches everything)
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me/Right underneath my skin

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

I know I've got a face in me
Points out all my mistakes to me
You've got a face on the inside too
Your paranoia's probably worse
I don't know what set me off first
But I know what I can't stand
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is
I can't add up to what you can
But everybody has a face that they hold inside
A face that awakes when they close their eyes
A face that watches every time they lie
A face that laughs every time they fall
(And watches everything)
So you know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is watching you too/Right inside your skin

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath the skin

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin

The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back (The sun goes down)
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath the skin (I feel the light betray me)

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back (The sun goes down)
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within (I feel the light betray me)
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within (I feel the light betray me)

 

Part of Me (8-Track Demo)

Part of me won't go away
Every day reminded how much I hate it
Weighted against the consequences
Can't live without it, so it's senseless
Wanna cut out of my soul and just live with a gaping hole
Take control of my life and wash out all the burnt taste
I made the problems in the first place
Hang my head low, 'cause it's part of me
You'll hardly see, right next to the heart of me
Hurting me, the routine scar
New cuts cover where the old ones are
So tired of making the same mistakes again and again
The suffering just won't end
And I can't let myself be
The man that's staring in the mirror through me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

I feel it every day
I feel I'm in my way
I feel it swell up inside
Swell up inside, swallowing me

(Freedom can be frightening if you've never felt it)

Once it's been dealt with, you feel like you've been touched by something angelic
And then melt it down into a pool of peace
Cease to be the animal you used to be
Remove the broken parts you know were wrong
And feel the calm when the problem's all gone
And then you start to see
Another piece of yourself that you can't let be
Memories of the last fight to free yourself
Take you to the depths at the bottom of the well
And then you know that you can choose to lose
The part of your heart where your inside's bruised
You can live if you're willing to
Put a stop to just what's killing you

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

Cut myself free

Willingly stop just what's killing me

I feel it every day
I feel I'm in my way
I feel it swell up inside
Swell up inside, swallowing me

Alive in me, inside of me
A part turns grey and rocks away silently
Alive in me, inside of me
A part turns grey and rocks away silently

(This part of me won't go away)
Alive in me, inside of me
A part turns grey and rocks away silently
(Part of me won't go away)
Alive in me, inside of me
A part turns grey and rocks away silently

I feel it every day
I feel I'm in my way
I feel it swell up inside
Swell up inside, swallowing me

I feel it every day
I feel I'm in my way
I feel it swell up inside
Swell up inside, swallowing me

I feel it every day
I feel I'm in my way
I feel it swell up inside
Swell up inside, swallowing me

 

Part of Me (9-Track Demo)

Part of me won't go away, everyday reminded how much I hate it
Weighted against the consequences
Can't live without it, so it's senseless
Want to cut it out of my soul and just live with a gaping hole
Pride myself and taking control of the situation
Responsible for it's creation
Hang my head low cause it's part of me
You hardly see, right here in the heart of me
Hurting me, the roots old scar
New cuts over where the old ones are
And now I'm sick of this
I can't stand the sandpaper thoughts that grate on my sanity
I'd rather not even be than the man that's staring in the mirror through me

Cut myself free
Willingly, stop just what's killing me
Cut myself free
Willingly, stop just what's killing me
Cut myself free
Willingly, stop just what's killing me
Cut myself free
Willingly, stop just what's killing me

I feel it everyday
I feel I'm in my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

(Freedom can be frightening if you've never felt it)

 

Once it's been dealt with
You feel like you've been touched by something angelic
And then melted down into a pool of peace
Cease to be the animal you used to be
Eradicate the paid pollution
Feel the rein of resolution
But then you start to see another piece of yourself that you can't let be
Memories of the last fight to free yourself
Take you to the depths of the bottom of the well
So you know that you can choose to lose the part in your heart where your inside's bruised
You can live if you're willing to
Put a stop to just what's killing you

Cut myself free
Willingly, stop just what's killing me
Cut myself free
Willingly, stop just what's killing me
Cut myself free
Willingly, stop just what's killing me
Cut myself free
Willingly, stop just what's killing me

I feel it everyday
I feel I'm in my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

This part of me won't go away
Part of me won't go away

I feel it everyday
I feel I'm in my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

I feel it everyday
I feel I'm in my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me
I feel it everyday
I feel I'm in my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

Shut up when I'm talking to you
Shut up

Shut up
Shut up when I'm talking to you

I cannot take this anymore
Saying everything I've said before
All these words they make no sense
I found bliss in ignorance
Less I hear the less you'll say
You'll find that out anyway

Just like before…

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break

I find the answers aren't so clear
Wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts they make no sense
I found bliss in ignorance
Nothing seems to go away
Over and over again

Just like before…

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

Shut up when I'm talking to you
Shut up

Shut up

Shut up
Shut up when I'm talking to you
Shut up

Shut up

Shut up

Shut up

I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

Rhinestone (9-Track Demo)

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
Storm bright in the sky
The sun will escape me
So why did I try
From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
Storm bright in the sky
The sun will escape me
So why did I try

From the thread to the needle, middle to end
When skies cock back and shock that which couldn't defend
The rain then sends dripping an acidic question
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then with the eyes tightly shut, looking thought the rust and rotten dust
A spot of light floods the floor
And pours itself upon a world of pretend
The eyes ease open and its dark again

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
Storm bright in the sky
The sun will escape me
So why did I try

From the top to the bottom

In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
Storm bright in the sky
The sun will escape me
So why do I try


In a minute you'll find me
Eyes burn me up
You say you'll never forget me
But the lies have piled up

Moving all around
Screaming of the ups and downs
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
And as the wheels go round the sunset creeps past the street lamps, cars, chain links, and concrete
A window then grows and captures the eye
Prys out yellow light as it passes it by
A small black figure sits in front of a box
Inside a box a rock with the needles on top
Nothing stops in this land of the pain
The sane lose not knowing they were part of the game
And the inside changes and the box stays the same
In shame,you shovel up the pieces to the pain
You could try to hide yourself in this world of pretend
When the paper's crumbled up it can't be perfect again

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
Storm bright in the sky
The sun will escape me

She Couldn't


Won't be long 'til everybody knows

I've seen her smiling
The sunlight is shining on her now
She couldn't stay here
She knows you won't let her down

You know she couldn't stay here with you
You know she had to go
Even though she couldn't stay here with you
You know you're not alone

No matter what you think you did wrong
(Won't be long 'til everybody knows)
She knew she had to go all along
(Won't be long 'til everybody knows)
No matter what you think you did wrong
(Won't be long 'til everybody knows)
She knew she had to go all along
(Won't be long 'til everybody knows)

I see her shining
The sunlight's crying for her now
She wouldn't stay here
She knows you won't let her down

You know she couldn't stay here with you
You know she had to go
Even though she couldn't stay here with you
You know you're not alone

No matter what you think you did wrong
(Won't be long 'til everybody knows)
She knew she had to go all along
(Won't be long 'til everybody knows)
No matter what you think you did wrong
(Won't be long 'til everybody knows)
She knew she had to go all along
(Won't be long 'til everybody knows)

Won't be long 'til everybody knows
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
Won't be long 'til everybody knows
Won't be long 'til everybody knows

No matter what you think you did wrong

Slip

In the center of the silence, violent thoughts are thrown through
The thick smoke and flickering lights that brighten the room
All the things that you wanted to say
Get lost and thrown away
You can fade and hesitate to speak your mind
Can't turn back when you cross the line
Sometimes it's someone you know who just doesn't care
Has to see you go to know you were there

This is the sun behind the rain
Even though sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute
May've begun to run an endless race
But I never looked back
When I begin it
Know that this is the sun behind the rain
Even though sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute
May've begun to run an endless race
But I never looked back
When I begin it

I know all of this will soon be gone
You don't really have to prove them wrong

Sometimes you've got no control of where you go
Taking you down a road you don't know
And you feel so lost that you wanna hide your face
You don't recognize the place you're in
Sometimes the sun doesn't shine your way
Sometimes the night doesn't turn to day
Sometimes the light's so bright it burns through the night and keeps the darkness at bay
(Run away)

This is the sun behind the rain
Even though sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute
May've begun to run an endless race
But I never looked back
When I begin it
Know that this is the sun behind the rain
Even though sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute
May've begun to run an endless race
But I never looked back
When I begin it

I know all of this will soon be gone
You don't really have to prove them wrong
I know soon enough you'll make them see
You'll be far away from them with me

Follow the link in the chain without a name
Seal the light and the darkened days remains
Taken away from the place you've been trapped
Break all you know then bring it all back

This is the sun behind the rain
Even though sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute
May've begun to run an endless race
But I never looked back
When I begin it
Know that this is the sun behind the rain
Even though sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute
May've begun to run an endless race
But I never looked back
When I begin it

I know all of this will soon be gone
You don't really have to prove them wrong
I know soon enough you'll make them see
You'll be far away from them alone with me

 

So Far Away

Save me now

From this mess that I've created
All the souls have gone

And I'm stranded here with doubt and fear alone

Tell me how

I'm in fault for all this madness
I don't know what's wrong

But I cannot help but try to push it

So far away
(In so deep and inside of me)
So hard to say
(I don't want to say it anyway)

Save me now

I'm the mess I have created
And my soul has gone

For some reason all I do is push it

So far away
(In so deep and inside of me)
So hard to say
(I don't want to say it anyway)
So far away

It's so far away
(In so deep and inside of me)
So hard to say
(I don't want to say it anyway)
So far away
(In so deep and inside of me)
So hard to say
(I don't want to say it anyway)

 

Super Zero

So
What do you think?

What do I do to ignore what's behind me
Do I follow my fate to escape blindly
Do I hide my pride away from these bad dreams
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening
Do I let it go and try to stand it
Or do I try to catch them red handed
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness
Or do I trust none and live life in loneliness
Cause sunlight burns the skin of sleeping men
I make the right turns but I'm lost within
I put on my daily facade but then
I just end up getting hurt again by myself

(Myself)
I ask why
(But in my mind I find)
I can't rely on myself
(Myself)
I ask why
(But in my mind I find)
I can't rely on myself

I can't hold on
(To what I want when I'm stretched so thin)
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
(Running against you, I can't win)
With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I turn my back I'm defenseless
And to give into fate seems senseless
If I hide my pride I'll lie sleepless
And won't be able to cope with my weakness
If I let them go I'll be outdone
But if I try to catch them i'll be outrun
If i'm killed by the questions like a cancer
Then i'll be buried in the silence of the answer by myself

(Myself)
I ask why
(But in my mind I find)
I can't rely on myself
(Myself)
I ask why
(But in my mind I find)
I can't rely on myself

I can't hold on
(To what I want when I'm stretched so thin)
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
(Running against you, I can't win)
With thoughts of failure sinking in

How do you think I've lost so much
Always afraid that i'm out of touch
How do you expect I will know what to do
When all I know is what you tell me to

Don't you (know)
I can't tell you how to make it (go)
No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
I can't seem to convince myself (why)
I'm stuck on the outside
Don't you (know)
I can't tell you how to make it (go)
No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
I can't seem to convince myself (why)
I'm stuck on the outside

I can't hold on
(To what I want when I'm stretched so thin)
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
(Running against you, I can't win)
With thoughts of failure sinking in
I can't hold on
(To what I want when I'm stretched so thin)
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
(Running against me, I can't win)
With thoughts of failure from with-

 

Untitled

It starts with one / and multiplies 'til you can taste the sun
And burned by the sky you tried to take it from
But, if it falls, there's no place to run
Crumbling down / it's so unreal
They're dealing you in to determine your end
And sending you back again to places you've been
And bending your will / 'til it breaks you within
And, still, they fill their eyes
With the twilight through the skylight
And the highlights on a frame of steel
See the brightness of your likeness
As I write this on pad with the way I feel
Hear the screaming in my dreaming
As it's seeming that you played your part
Like you're heartless, take apart this
In the darkness / but I know that I've tried so hard

I tried so hard / and got so far
But, in the end / it doesn't even matter
I had to fall / to lose it all
But, in the end / it doesn't even matter

I've looked down the line / and what's there is not what ought to be
Held back by the battles they fought for me
Calling me to be part of their property
And, now, I see that I get no chance
I get no break / fakes and snakes quickly lead to mistakes
And, as the tightrope within / slowly starts to thin
I can only hope that they close their eyes
To the twilight through the skylight
And the highlights on a frame of steel
See the brightness of your likeness
As I write this on a path through the way I feel
Hear the screaming in my dreaming
As it's seeming that you played your part
Like you're heartless, take apart this
In the darkness / but I know that I've tried so hard

I tried so hard / and got so far
But, in the end / it doesn't even matter
I had to fall / to lose it all
But, in the end / it doesn't even matter

I put my trust / in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this / there's only one thing
You should know

I put my trust / in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this / there's only one thing
You should know

I put my trust / in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this / there's only one thing
You should know

I tried so hard / and got so far
But, in the end / it doesn't even matter
I had to fall / to lose it all
But, in the end / it doesn't even matter
