1. COLD AND UGLY

Underneath her skin and jewelry,
Hidden in her words and eyes
Is a wall that's cold and ugly
And she's scared as hell.
Trembling at the thought of feeling.
Wide awake and keeping distance.
Nothing seems to penetrate her.
She's scared as hell.

I am frightened to.

Wide awake
And keeping distance from my soul.
I am scared like you.




2. HUSH

I can't say what I want to,
Even if I'm not serious.
Things like....
'fuck yourself,
Kill yourself,
You piece of shit.'

People tell me what to say,
What to think ,
And what to play.

I say...
'go fuck yourself,
You piece of shit.
Why don't you go kill yourself? '

Just kidding.




3. PART OF ME

I know you well.
You are a part of me.
I know you better than I know myself.
I know you best,
Better than anyone.
I know you better than I know myself.

You don't judge.
You can't speak.
You can't leave.
You can't hurt me.
You're just here for me to use.

I know you best,
Better than one might think.
I know you better than I know myself.
It's time for you
To make a sacrifice.
It's time to die a
Little.
Give it up.

You are a part of me.




4. CRAWL AWAY

Crawled away from me
Slipped away from me
Tried to keep a hold, but there was nothing I could say
Slid away from me
Crept away from me
Tried to keep it down, but there was nothing I could say

What you try to say is you don't wanna play
What you want and what you need don't mean that much to me

I can see you're back is turning
If I could, I'd stick a knife in

Crawled away from me
Slipped away from me
Tried to keep a hold, but there was nothing I could say
Slid away from me
Crept away from me
Tried to keep it down, but there was nothing I could say

What you try to say is you don't wanna play
What you want and what you need don't mean that much to me

I can see you're back is turning
If I could, I'd stick a knife in!

This is love...
This is my love for you...
This is my love...
This is my love for you...
This is my love for you...
This is my love for you...
This is my love!

Say you won't go.
Won't go... won't go... say it
Get you in a strangle hold baby
Get it 'till you get it right

What you try to say is you don't wanna play
What you want and what you need don't mean fuck to me

I can see you're back is turning
If I could, I'd stick a knife in




5. SOBER

There's a shadow just behind me, shrouding every step I take
Making every promise empty, pointing every finger at me
Waiting like a stalking butler, who upon the finger rests
Murder now the path of 'must we', just because the son has come

Jesus, won't you fucking whistle
something but the past and done?

Why can't we not be sober? I just want to start this over
Why can't we drink forever? I just want to start this over

I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
I will work to elevate you, just enough to bring you down.

Mother Mary, won't you whisper?
Something but the past is done.

Why can't we not be sober? I just want to start this over.
Why can't we sleep forever? I just want to start this over.

I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
Trust me. Trust me. Trust me. Trust me. Trust me.

Why can't we not be sober? I just want to start things over.
Why can't we sleep forever? I just want to start this over.

I want what I want...
I want what I want...
I want what I want...
I want what I want...




6. JERK-OFF

Someone told me once
That there's a right and wrong,
And that punishment
Would come to those
Who dare to cross the line.

But it must not be true
For jerk-offs like you.
Maybe it takes longer to catch a total asshole.
But I'm tired of waiting.
Maybe it's just bullshit and I should play god,
And shoot you myself.
Because I'm tired of waiting.

Consequences dictate
Our course of action
And it doesn't matter what's right.
It's only wrong if you get caught.
If consequences dictate
My course of action
I should play god
And shoot you myself.
I'm very tired of waiting.

I should
Kick you,
Beat you,
Fuck you,
And then shoot you in your fucking head.
