Bored To Tears
Tired of this, done with that
Never satisfied with where I'm at
I sit and think what to do
Just a motherfuckin' bore without a clue

Shot my drugs, drank my booze
Tired of joy and self abuse
Eternally jaded, through and through
Just a self loathing dick without a clue

Oh, bored to death, I'm just bored to tears
Same old shit, just different day and year
Killed myself but that got boring too
So beyond the point where it's not true

Far beyond high, dramatically Low
Eternal stare as if I care to know
All of this struggle, all of this work
In the end you die like some moronic jerk

Shot my drugs, drank my booze
Tired of joy and self abuse
Eternally jaded, through and through
Just a self loathing fuck without a clue

Oh, bored to death, I'm just bored to tears
Same old shit just different day and year
Killed myself but that got boring too
So beyond the point where it's not true

The colors I see are all bleeding
The sound that was is now standing still
I wonder when it was it all faded
A dullen corpse that cannot be killed

Oh, bored to death, I'm just bored to tears
Same old shit just different day and year
Killed myself but that bot boring too
So beyond the point where it's not true

The Rose Petalled Garden
Yeah.......

Alone in the garden and all that would be
Alone in the garden you thought would set you free
Nowhere to draw water
And if you could it would be damned
Go on turn your back now on everything...

Yeah.......

Barefoot and baron, the dust distorts the sound
Last one left in this godforsaken town
Tarnished all your memories
Your smile's a front at best
As you stare out the tilted window
Is it one big second guess?

Yeah.......

I'm so far away
I'm so far away now
I'm so far away
I'm so damn far away

Yeah.......

Hey You (Batch Of Lies)
Out of touch, you're out of time
Left alone, yourself to find
Bound & chained by your silence
Things to be known
If it awakens, just where..
Where will it go now?

Hey, hey you, what ya gonna do?
When you open your eyes and you realize
Hey, hey you, what ya gonna do?
When you open your eyes and you realize
That batch of lies was really the truth

The paranoia, the fear they're your friends
Wish to hear nothing, while seeing all the same
Bound & chained by your silence
Things to be known
If it awakens, just where...
Where will it go now?

Hey, hey you, what ya gonna do?
When you open your eyes and you realize
Hey, hey you, what ya gonna do?
When you open your eyes and you realize
That batch of lies was really the...

Hey, hey you, what ya gonna do?
When you open your eyes and you realize
Hey, hey you, what ya gonna do?
When you open your eyes and you realize
That batch of lies, batch of lies was really the...

Born To Lose
A little hating in the morning time
A little hating come around noon
Ain't no remorse, all that you think
Ain't no regret, all that you do

Jesus, hell yeah, what do we do, what do we do?
Jesus, can you hear us screaming up above?
Lord, I guess we were just born to lose

A little hating on my TV screen
A little hating in the news that I read
Lay to rest a soul so kind
Rewarding the wrong feeding the twisted mind

Jesus, hell yeah, what do we do, what do we do?
Jesus, can you hear us screaming up above?
Lord, I guess we were just born to...

Yeah!
You, lookin' at me
Forever hurt, forever bleed
It ain't black, it ain't white
It ain't wrong, lord knows it ain't right

A little hating in the morning time
A little hating come around noon
Ain't no remorse in all that you think
Ain't no regret, all that you do

Jesus, hell yeah, what do we do, what do we do?
Jesus, can you hear us screaming up above?
Lord, I guess we were just...

Peddlers Of Death
Come, take my hand
Let us walk for awhile
Your burden of pain
Replaced with a smile

For the peddlers of death
Come calling one more time, yeah
Bearing promises
For the peddlers of death
Come calling one more time, yeah
Bearing promises

So called friends running loose
Draining you whole 'til you're of no use
Letting go of what you need most
Early wish, early grave, early ghost

For the peddlers of death
Come calling one more time, yeah
Bearing promises
For the peddlers of death
Come calling one more time, yeah
Bearing promises

Come, take my hand
Let us walk for awhile

Mother Mary
Yeah!

I feel my wheels have come undone
I've fallen off my tracks
Lord, I need your guiding hand
If I'm to make it back
Oh, make it back, back, back...

Oh, all my life everything's been after me
All my life I just refused to see
Take me in from the storm
Come and rescue me
Under the wings of mother mary

Doing wrong is all you know
In the end, do you know where you go?
You can't keep doing what you do
Sooner or later it all comes back to you, you, you...

Oh, all my life everything's been after me
All my life I just refused to see
Take me in from the storm
Come and rescue me
Under the wings of mother mary, yeah

All my life everything's been after me
All my life I just refused to see
Take me in from the storm
Come and rescue me
Under the wings of mother mary

Beneath The Tree
In this garden full of good
Lies a garden full of evil
Awaits strange, bizarre,
Unusual people

Here is where, tripping and nobody cares
Here is where the setting sun is never feared

It goes on and on and on
Oh, it never ends
It goes on and on and on
Welcome my friends...

Beneath the tree of heaven
Lies the horror of the clay
Beneath the tree of heaven
Come as you please, do as you may
Beneath the tree of heaven

Crooked minds
Like a crooked tree
Never caring where one's branches
Have been or where they're gonna be

People so seedy, people so greedy
But in the end, ain't we all a little needy?

It goes on and on and on
Oh, it never ends
It goes on and on and on
Welcome my friends...

Beneath the tree of heaven
Lies the horror of the clay
Beneath the tree of heaven

Tree of heaven
Lies the horror of the clay
Beneath the tree of heaven
Come as you please, do as you may
Beneath the tree of heaven

Low Down
{Anchor my soul no more
Low Down} - backwards

You leave me hanging high
Lost my sense to confide
Blanks, confused and empty
Yet overcome with a relieving sigh
Silence, deafening silence
Wicked world running through your head
Tired of second guessing
What I did or what it was I said

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Anchor my soul no more, low down

On the outside running smooth
Of a gutless cold machine
Although I saw it coming
This soon, I didn't think I'd see
Just come out and tell me
You ain't gonna break my will
You're water under the bridge now
Lying dormant, dead and still

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Anchor my soul no more, low down

{On the outside running smooth
Of a gutless cold machine
Although, I saw it coming
This soon, I didn't think I'd see} - backwards

My eyes can no longer be blackened
My smile can no longer break
As far as I can throw you
I wouldn't trust you cuz you're so damn fake
Now let's get somethin' straight here
Get the fuck outta my way
Forever my stone will be rollin'
No matter what you do or say

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Anchor my soul no more, low down

Lost My Better Half
Lay to rest, bury the dead
Tomorrow seems to turn so fast
Your in the boiler meltin' me down
Ain't the first, won't be the last
So many people all at once
Who I once was has died
Never feel the ills of breakin' down
Calloused and petrified

Slipped inside a hole, don't know where it's gonna lead
Lost in a world all alone and I'm lookin' for me
I gotta get it back

Lay waste to a friend, killing all the past
Pray that all is forgotten, I lost my better half
All that was, all so fucked & trashed
Pray that all is forgotten
Lord I feel I've lost my better half

Wondering just how I got here
Shattered to the core
Lookin' to go back in time
Moving forward nevermore
On the verge of a breakdown
Run down, bludgeoned, and beat
All the things that you once held
Lying dead before your feet

Slipped inside a hole, don't know where it's gonna lead
Lost in a world all alone and I'm lookin' for me
I gotta get it back

Lay waste to a friend, killing all the past
Pray that all is forgotten, lost my better half
All that was, all so fucked & trashed
Pray that all is forgotten
Lord I feel I've lost my better half

Slipped inside a hole, don't know where it's gonna lead
Lost in a world all alone and I'm lookin' for me
I gotta get it back

Lay waste to a friend, killing all the past
Pray that all is forgotten, lost my better half
All that was, all so fucked & trashed
Pray that all is forgotten
Lord I feel I've lost my better half

Black Pearl
Mother come pick me up
I feel I've lost all that I knew
In this forest full of lies
You're all that's ringing true

Oh, be my world
Black pearl
Forever my world
Black pearl

Gather all that's left
Place my fears up on this shelf
Now I feel alive
As I'm no longer by myself

Oh, be my world
Black pearl
Forever my world
Black pearl

Oh, be my world
Black pearl
Forever my world
Black pearl

World Of Trouble
2...3...4...I drank all my fuckin' brew and I ain't got no more....

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

Feeling so damn tired
Running on desperate fumes
For the end is always near, now
Empty handed, it's always soon

Psychocize me, terrify me
Jeopardizing all that's mine
Megalomize me, certify me
On my knees until I cry

Lord only knows where I've gone
Lord only knows where I've been
In a world of trouble again
Yeah, yeah
Worries, stream around the bend
Yeah, yeah
World of trouble again
Yeah, yeah
Worries, stream around the bend
Yeah, yeah

Treat me like a dog, now
Knowing I won't turn
Bind me like a slave, now
Cast down, no concern

Psychocize me, terrify me
Jeopardizing all that's mine
Megalomize me, certify me
On my knees until I cry

Lord only knows where I've gone
Lord only knows where I've been
In a world of trouble again
Yeah, yeah
Worries, stream around the bend
Yeah, yeah
World of trouble again
Yeah, yeah
Worries stream around the bend

Spoke In The Wheel
Lord, I question whether I've had my fill
Lord, I question whether I can take much more
You may laugh as I lay here bleeding, babe
Yeah, no more afters or befores, no

Some day you'll know just how it feels
You left me there twice before
Some day you'll know just how it feels
Shattered, cast aside, stripped of your pride
Like you were never nothing special
Made to feel like another spoke in the wheel

So you say I'm just another dollar, babe
So you say I'm just another day, yeah
Once my blood was strong but now it's jaded and it's thin
Unlike you I can still tell right from wrong

Some day you'll know just how it feels
Why, you left me there twice before
Some day you'll know just how it feels
Shattered, cast aside, stripped of your pride
Like you were never nothing special
Made to feel like another spoke in the wheel

Some day you'll know just how it feels
Why, you left me there twice before
Some day you'll know just how it feels
Shattered, cast aside, stripped of your pride
Like you were never nothing special
Made to feel like another spoke in the wheel

The Beginning...At Last
Have all you are and all you're to be
Fade in your world and all that you see
This hole in the wall, all is under your thumb
Dulling your senses until you become

Until you become
I gotta run, I gotta run
Caught in a world where you could never run too fast
To finally reach the beginning...at last

Dismantling comfort of those you surround
Place joy upon strangers, now ain't that profound?
This hole in the wall, all is under your thumb
Dulling your senses until you become...

Until you become
I gotta run, I just got to run
Caught in a world where you could never run too fast
To finally reach, oh, the beginning...at last

Where you going, going?
Never knowing, knowing
Just who and where, where
You gotta turn, turn
Forever caring
Forever sharing
You never learn, learn
Lifetime of getting burned, burned

No More Tears
The light in the window is a crack in the sky
A stairway to darkness in the blink of an eye
The levee of tears to know she'll never be coming back
The man in the dark will bring another attack

Your mama told you that you're not supposed to talk to strangers
Look in the mirror tell me do you think your life's in danger

Yeah, yeah, yeah

No more tears
No more tears
No more tears
No more tears

Another day passes as the night closes in
The red light goes on to say it's time to begin, yeah

I see the man around the corner waiting, does he see me?
I close my eyes and wait to hear the sound of someone screaming

Yeah, yeah, yeah 

No more tears
No more tears
No more tears
No more tears

Now that it's over can we just say goodbye?
I'd like to move on and make the most of the night
Just one more fuck before I leave you this way, yeah
Your lips are so cold I don't know what to say

I never wanted it to end this way, my love, my darling
Believe me when I say, with you in love, I think I'm falling

Yeah, yeah, yeah

No more tears
No more tears
No more tears
No more tears
