Sick Of It All

Call to Arms tracks

Lyrics


1. Let Go

Another time another place
i might have had a smile on my face
this could have been such a beautiful thing
but now it's just a fucking waste of time
we've said what had to be said
the issue's discussed already dead
we're clinging to something
what? we don't know
it's about time we just let go
what's the point? why do we bother?
just to try and hurt each other?
or to try and save part of what was there?
put on an act pretend like we care
avoiding the outcome we both know
cut the shit and just let go
all this back and forth
cheap shots no remorse
no chance wounds to mend
when is this all gonna end?
all i ever wanted was some fucking peace




2. Call To Arms

Another cause, heed the call, everybody rally 'round
don't contemplate if it's right, just follow the crowd
but don't you dare disagree
'cause they'll question your loyalty
their idea of comraderie is to heed their call to arms
who appointed you the moral judge?
pointing your fingers at everyone
don't pull that guilt trip bullshit on me
nothing you say or do can decide for me
so go ahead, keep your rules, i'll choose my own wars
your accusations and harsh words can't do me any harm
'cause i don't believe in blind loyalty
that's just mob mentality
i will answer what's right for me
and not your call to arms




3. Potential For A Fall

Here's another tale, a replay of society's failures
out for ourselves, bred to consume in pursuit of wealth
and the ones in charge, once secure show disregard
for future generations who must endure what's left behind
no compassion, no caution, no forethought
potential for a fall
no forethought, no vision, no future
potential for a fall
go about our lives as we turn a blind eye
as long as i get mine
potential for a fall
submissive, complacent, sit back and let it slip away
just can't seem to hold it together
and yet we continue with the charade of being individuals
as we get spoon-fed, kept in check by the latest trends
are we that shallow? is getting your groove on all that matters?
i'm not asking you to bleed but show consideration please
sit back and let it slip away
we can't seem to hold it together we can't seem to get it right




4. Falter

Always looking, always waiting anticipating
fickle and jaded sometimes sloppy working the body
the pressure is in my head i won't falter
the hell with meeting expectations
proudly displaying imperfections
sometimes sloppy working the body
the pressure is in my head i won't falter
it won't be the end of me 'cause i won't let it get to me




5. The Future Is Mine

if you want to save me leave me alone
with your sick polluted soul
if you want to save me leave me alone
the future's mine
it's such a waste of precious time, precious years
precious feelings that are misdirected
and should be disconnected
it's such a shame to learn a lesson
after giving of yourself in all so many ways
to find it didn't pay
if you want to save me leave me alone
with your sick polluted soul
if you want to save me leave me alone - now!
don't want to compromise myself
low self image hasn't got the best of confidence
at least not yet it hasn't
only the least affected can be the most respected
just to escape is worth the temporary pain and hurt
if you want to save me leave me alone
with your sick polluted soul
if you want to save me leave me alone
i've had enough this time
the future is mine
my friends objectively
told me again and again about the things that i refused to see




6. Guilty

i watch as innocence is slaughtered
can't stop the ringing in my head
you can't see what i see, you can't feel what i feel
guilty - the time will surely come
guilty - when i pay a heavy price - guilty!
i search for love but find opression
can't stop the ringing in my head
you can't see what i see, you can't feel what i feel
just when i've fought out of the corner
i find my back against the wall
my rules are far too hard to live by, they beat me down from inside
guilty - my standards are pathetic
guilty - i fail myself again




7. Falling Apart

My enemies lurk in the corner of my eye
falling apart
staring back from the dark shadows in my mind
faling apart
my trust is like a crumbling statue
falling apart
i try to hide but find no refuge
faling apart
they seem so threatening
they all seem so threatening
they're all coming after me
the enemy's after me - that's a problem
from what i see the land of the free is ready
to arm me to the teeth - that's a problem
we're free to cheat, free to steal
free to wreck each other at will
they shock my chill, shock my senses
never let down my defenses
kundalini's in a mess
and i'm shattering from stress
they victimize, traumatize
and i'm as vulnerable as a child
all the sounds i hear at night
is my alarm going off?
are my windows shut and locked
as i fumble trough my keys
you see me falling apart at the seams
falling apart
the enemy's after me




8. Sanctuary

This is for the one who saved me
accepts me for who i am, just me
and always gives back tenfold whatever i give
respect was never ever questioned, every feeling reciprocated
mutual ideals and passion straight from the soul (from my soul)
when i'm safely in your arms there i find my sanctuary
help me weather every storm, you're my sanctuary, my true love
there are those who tried to use you
even ones who would abuse you
they never took the time to see what i see
how you're always waiting for me kept me sane while all was crazy
and so i give you what's dearest to me
my true love the very first time you touched my soul
from that day on never want to let you go




9. Morally Confused

Morraly confused 'cause i'm faced with the scum
the scum that keeps my emotions numb
fight with the images, i fight with my thoughts
suppress all the violence & keep backing off
am i still good if i want to see it
am i still sane if i want to feel it
the love in my heart ain't the answer to it
blood on my hands and morraly confused
i feel the pain that i inflict
there's a lot of baggage that keeps building up
baggage that's always annoying as fuck
annoying reminders of how it is
frustrating shit that'll never change
i can't be bothered with problem solvers
all sound alike, they're all pantomime
i can't be bothered with problem solvers
leave me to stew here alone in my fuckin juice
i don't know, i don't know what's right
i can't shut these images out




10. Hindsight

don't think of the could've beens
don't think of what shoul've been
weed out your weaknesses
piled up issue makes a mess
don't think you had a chance
don't dwell on lost romance
nothing is guaranteed
or caters to stupidity
they say life is what you make it
can't go back and try to change it
learn to live with your regrets
choose a path choose it right
it's all there in black and white
disassociate joy and wealth
just don't even kid yourself
the say life is what you make it
can't go back and try to change it
choises that were made
opportunities
push away the pain and move on
with no delay
move on accept the shame
learn to live with your regrets
move on with no delay
move on accept the shame
it's all behind you anyway




11. Martin

Hidden like the squalor that we create
martin wants out of this
but poverty keeps him in this place
sratching like the vermin between the walls
martin needs a friend but the people the he meets
just give him shit and pretend, they're no good
he's not blind, all he needs is a single ray of light
life's too short but seems too long
when lonliness becomes the norm
life's too short but seems too long
and it may come as no surprise
but the lonliness in martin's eyes
was good enough
and life itself was long enough
knowing full well, knowing what's going on
knowing for far too long, jealous
he's so jealous of all the fun
martin needs a friend
but the pricks that he meets
just give him shit and pretend
long enough, life itself was long enough
had enough, he laid down when he had enough




12. Pass The Buck

Close your eyes and you're sure to see apathy
pass the buck so you don't show sympathy
the beaten path don't let it lead you misery
the fear you hold will only cheat you
don't let it eat you like a cancer
we all pay for the shit we do
pass the buck not to me
out of touch with the things that set us free
pass the buck not to me
out of touch sitting back while we watch 'em bleed
senseless, have we gone numb?
youth led by image, what have we become?
heartless it's the way to be
maybe it's for you but it's not for me
not for me




13. Quiet Man

He stares back, he glares back at the eye of the vicious storm
he's holding on defiantly 'cause he won't give up his decency
not sucked in by evil nonsense
not weighted by a guilty conscience
the quiet man leads a quiet life hoping for the day he sees the light
his reticence was heaven sent and everywhere he turned
he saw the ways of the world and they were hell bent
he kept his virtue to himself
peace of mind is a fleeting thing
and he's not sure when he comes across it
peace of mind is a fleeting thing
at least sometimes he can enjoy it, that's more than they can say
'cause they don't change their evil ways more than they can say
'cause they're trapped in the storm they created
the quiet man could say he's seen so many lives decay
but he chose to never spread his word
so when he's gone his virtue fades away




14. Drastic

Think of where you came from
think about your past
wouldn't you look ridiculous
selling out at last
don't bite more than you can chew
in the search for the perfect you
don't bite more than you can chew
you gotta be true, you gotta be true
don't bite more than you can chew
in the search for the perfect you
don't be drastic, don't be drastic
that could be me
that could be you
no one is immune
cut some slack before you mock those
trying to improve
we've all been there too
we always pull through
we've got to learn humility
we won't make the same mistakes




15. (Just A) Patsy

Put defenses to rest
when justice becomes moot
defy - let others follow suit
to start the uprise is to start the war
paranoid conspiracies galore
what's the point to maintain your innocence
what's the point to play into their game
what's the use to even try ans sway
pigs that are out to put you away
just a patsy played for a fool
crooked games are what they're playing
lying, cheating, self defeating
crooked games are what they're playing
accusations so demeaning, played for a fool
crooked games are what they're playing
lying, cheating, self defeating
crooked games are what they're playing
accusations forcing you to put defenses to rest

GREEZY WHEEZY

Grain whiskey on my breath
baby left ain't feeling my best
slap of pork, can of greeze
could've been a worthy champeen
wheezy let it bleed wheezy let it bleed
wheezy let it bleed greazy wheezy
grain whiskey soaks my brain
shickhaus baby ease the pain
roll of nickles on the back of my neck
shit in your sisters fuck let it bleed
