1. TALLAHASSEE'S FOR HOOKERS

Raw dog or no dog baby
You've got the move
That's gonna drive me crazy
Don't look at me like
You're about to take off,
You're gonna see me when you dream

Cause right now,
It might seem shady
Keep the faith
And tell me "maybe"

Cause in a minute
The means will justify
An end that's gonna make
You scream

I give you credit more
Than I think I should,
But looking at it,
You seem like the tool
That would fall for any guy
Who lives a life on the road

You're getting starry eyes
Just because you were told
And he could see you look
At him from across the room

And everything you heard
About him is so untrue
Another drink for you
Is gonna make it easy to see,
You're the lucky girl coming home

Raw dog or no dog baby
You've got the move
That's gonna drive me crazy
Don't look at me like you're
About to take off

You're gonna see me
When you dream
Bring over your friend Sally,
Cause three's a crowd,
But not in Tally

Cause in a minute
The means will justify
An end that's gonna make
You scream

And please don't be
The one who needs to be
Just another victim
On a Saturday night

You come with me,
I'll show you the light
Please don't make me
Be the one you need

To be another victim
On a Saturday night
You come with me,
I'll show you the light

I know you wanted hope,
But I left it on
The dance floor
Who wants this beauty queen?
Not me!




2. LET'S WHISPER

Let's whisper things into your ear,
Making sure to discard what you hear.
What you know is safe...
But she seems to have played this game.

Stay on the base...
You'll see it's not worth
You taking the blame.

She looks so pretty that
It's such a pity
She won't be needing
Help for this beating.
This city...
It's weeping...

Things are not what they seem...
What is you're...Warm blanket...
To me it's every thing all under...
Sleep safely...
The safest kind of dream's now knowing...
It's over...One day you'll hear me sing.

Can I give you,
All that I hold dear?
Till this moment
It's been a long hard year.
Day in day out
I watched my chance go by.

Now opportunity is right by my side.
Finally all of this makes sense to me.
I gotta be the kind of man who lets you be.
Finally all of this makes sense to me.

I gotta be the kind of man
Who lets you be.
And have to see you running free,
With parts of me,
Gracefully,
Leaving it so easily.

Have you ever ran this race...
It all leads to disaster.
I'll be the one who's standing straight.
I promise i'll be faster.

Three things she said to me...
Don't play with my heart,
Don't be cruel to me,
Be honest from the start.

Don't mean a word of it,
Put me on the shelf.
You have nothing to give
You only love yourself.
Finally all this makes sense to me.

I gotta be the kind of man
Who lets you be.
Finally all of this makes sense to me.
I gotta be the kind of guy who lets you be.

And have to see you running free,
With parts of me,
Gracefully,
Leaving it so easily.

Let's whisper...
Silently...
Let's whisper
...Only for me.

Who wants this queen of scene?
Tell her she lost the king
Come claim your beauty queen
She's free from me!
Come take the queen of scene
Cause she's got no need for me

Breathe deep
Breathe deep
Breathe deep

I give you credit more
Than I think I should,
But looking at it,
You seem like the tool that would
Fall for any guy
Who lives a life on the road.

You're getting starry eyes
Just because you were told
And he could see you look
At him from across the room

And everything you heard
About him is so untrue
Another drink for you
Is gonna make it easy to see,
You're the lucky girl coming home

Please don't be the one
Who needs to be
Just another victim
On a Saturday night

You come with me,
I'll show you the light
Please don't make me be
The one you need
To be another victim
On a Saturday night
You come with me,
I'll show you the light

When I look back,
On all the things
That let us be
Your hope may still linger here,
But you couldn't handle me

When I look back,
On all the things
That let us be
Your hope may still linger here,
But you couldn't handle me

You couldn't, handle, me
You couldn't, handle, me
You couldn't, handle, me
You couldn't, handle, me




3. I WILL STOP THE RAIN

You make me wanna scream.
Save today...
Just break away.
What's making you want to stay?
Is it me?

You swear talk days are over.
I just can't be your lover.
Bury me in the back of the yard
With dirt.Raise a glass tip
Your hat and toast to the past.

Don't strike a deal
With me go ahead
And stay on your knees.
Last thing i'll say to you,
Catch a cab,
Hop a train cause,
You and me are through.

I'm sick of living
Every day of life like
I'm the one to blame.
My life is mine to own
I'm gonna take this time
For me to take it back.

I gave you everything.
I don't even wanna wear
This ring.You should of,
Should of,
Spent more time on me.

All together strong
As ever you can hear
Me sing.
Hey,hey baby
Why can't you just break away.
Was it something he said?
Take this chance to get away.

Stop forgetting the pain.
You may not live another day.
Just hop a train,
Some day I will stop the rain.
Just know that come what may.

One word and I'm on my way.
You can live through this pain.
I will stop the rain.
Hey,hey baby why you can't just break away.

Was it something he said?
Take this chance to get away.
Stop forgetting the pain.
You may not live another day.
Just hop a train,
Some day i will stop the rain.




4. YOU'RE NOT ALONE

Tell me baby,
Are you coming over
Or do i need to go
Back to sleep.

This scene is utter chaos
You're driving me crazy
With all the little Secrets
You keep.

This name means nothing to me.
All I ever needed,
All I ever wanted was you.
Take a look out your window,
I'm watching closely;
I see everything that you do.

Are you coming,
Are you coming with me?
Are you coming,
Are you coming with me?

I just wanna be (any one you need).
I just wanna breathe the air
You breathe so deep.
When will you see (your the one for me)?
You know you really need
To come home with me.

Every night after dark
The beasts come out to feed.
Feel the wrath of standing still.
No more begging the window.

I'm coming out and
I'm needing to feed.
Let me play
Youthat endnote.

Tell me baby,
Are you coming over
Or do I need to go
Back to sleep.

This scene is utter chaos
You're driving me crazy
With all the little Secrets
You keep.

This name means nothing to me.
All i ever needed all i ever
Wanted was you.
Take a look out your window.
I'm watching closely i see
Everything that you do.

I want you to (feel me in you).
If you only knew revealing the truth.
Can it be seen (this change in me)?
One last goodbye kissing you goodnight.

I'll pave the way through
To better days,
Forget today there seems
To be no other way.

One thing i'll say is
I know all things will break.
Your trying hard you
Come off like a fake.

Stars fall;please do your best
To soften up their landing.




5. SUNNYLAND

With heat commence,
Why would you just want
To ride the fence.
Your taste is luke warm
And with it you lost
All of your charm.

What about the things we had.
What about the things you said.
What about the way you look
Laying in my bed.
What about the things we had.

What about the things you said.
What about Sunnyland.
You left me without one
Shred of clarity.
I made you and i'll break
You you're nothing without me.

There is no love here
There is no love.
You little slut go get yourself
Some self-respect.
Don't tell me you're sorry.

I'll never be your plan b.
Its darkness everyday guess
I'll be on my way.
Take off your mask and
Get some self-respect.

You lost me it's over hope
You have a nice day.
What about the things we had.
What about the things you said.
What about the way
You look laying in my bed.

What about the things we had.
What about the things you said.
What about Sunnyland.
Caught in the moment
Never wanted it to stop.

In retrospect
I should have pushed
You off the top.
I've got something
You wish you had.
I have something
You'll never have.

What about the things we had.
What about the things you said.
What about the way
You look laying in my bed.

What about the things we had.
What about the things you said.
What about Sunnyland.




6. WITH THESE HANDS

Please steal me away
From everything I know,
Can we be the only thing
That matters to you now.

I want everything.
You don't mean a thing to me.
I won't just turn
The other cheek.

And when you pray to be set free
It won't matter.
It won't matter.
And you don't mean a thing to me.

I won't just turn the other cheek.
And when you pray to be set free
It won't matter.
It won't matter.

And I can't wait
For the day
When you'll look
To me and say
It's over now.

And how sweet that day will be
When you look and say to me,
It's over now.

I won't believe one single
Thing your lying lips
Will say to me.
I hate every thing
That you say to me.

You're the one who killed it all.
You're the one who killed it all.

Sleep safely...
Sleep safely...
Sleep safely...
Sleep safely.

And i can't wait for the day
When you look to me and say
It's over now.
And how sweet that day will be
When you look and say to me,
It's over now.
[x2]

'Cause i built this with my 2 hands
'Cause i built this with my 2 hands
You never understood that

With my own 2 hands
With my own 2 hands

(with my own 2 hands)
(with my own 2 hands)
(with my own 2 hands)

Please steal me away
From everything i know,
(with my own 2 hands [x4])

Can we be the only things
That matter to you now.

Please steal me away
From everything i know,
(i can't wait for the day,
You look to me and say)
(it's over now, it's over now)

Can we be the only things
That matter to you now.

(i can't wait for the day,you look to me and say)
(it's over now, it's over now)




7. BRING ME THEIR HEAD

I'll charge the mound
To the top of the hill.
I'll make you proud
With my very first kill.

Something about the ride
And the thrill,
You don't know now but
Soon you will.

My father said to me,
I'll help you lead this killing spree.
Together learn to be a man;
I'll try to help you where I can.

This is the end of you;
I couldn't stop if I wanted to.

Call me the patient one.
We march together the fight has begun.
Our words are weapons
We wound with our tongues.
We got no limitations, fight for months.

This is the end of you;
I couldn't stop if
I wanted to.
[x2]

Bring me...
The head of.
Bring me
The head of self-righteous
Ignorance.
Bleed slowly cut
Deeper these people
Aren't your friends.

Bring me
The head of those
Who get in your way.
On honor I promise
This shit will stop today.

My father said to me,
I'll help you lead
This killing spree.
Together learn to be a man.
I'll try to help you
Where I can.

And when the day is done
I'll tell you go reload your gun.
Tomorrow we hunt again,
Go to some place we've never been.

I'll charge the mound
To the top of the hill.
I'll make you proud
With my very first kill.

Something about the ride
And the thrill,
You don't know now
But you soon will.

Call me the patient one.
We march together
The fight has begun.
Our words are weapons we wound
With our tongues.
We've got no limitations
I'll fight for months.

I'll charge the mound
To the top of the hill.
I'll make you proud
With my very first kill.

Something about
The ride and the thrill,
You don't know now
But you soon will.




8. MISS MISTRESS

(Instrumental)




9. SHOT DOWN WITH ARROWS

Stop talking stop talking to me.
I can read your book
From back to forward.
All I really wanna
Do is live my life.
I don't wanna have to deal
With you by my side.
Can you dream of a day
When it's said and done.

They must be getting tired
I see them marching one by one.
Stop talking stop talking to me.

Drag him up
From the back of the class,
No more excuses
This time we won't let him pass.
Call me up in the dead of night;
Take it upon myself to make
Things right this time.

I'll shoot it down
With my bow and arrow.
No more excuses this time
I'll bring it home son.
Stop talking stop talking to me.
Lately i've seen these things
Rarely ever go my way.

I'd like to return the favor paint
This picture gray.
Leave things behind me
Leave things behind me.

I want to paint this picture gray,
Wouldn't you,
Wouldn't you?
I want to paint this picture gray,
Wouldn't you?




10. NEW MANAGEMENT

Suffer me.
This is the last time
I hold myself from anger.
There is no such thing as
A 1 true love.

I'm constantly looking towards
Something better;
It makes no sense
For me to look above.

Baby rosemary,
What have you brought today for me,
This life has nothing for me tell me
If your up to trade.

I'll take anything you offer today
I'm feeling brave.
Oh tell me are you willing,
I want the finer things.

I'll take this gift
Your giving and take
All the hell it brings.
I wanna be the star
In the middle of your everything.

I'm the one who owns you
I want to be your king.

Dark night dark sky...
I'm ready for your offer;
Serve it to me silver plate.
This is the feast of ages;
Tonight we dine on perfect hate.
Oh tell me are you willing.
I want the finer things.

I'll take this gift
Your giving and all
The hell it brings.
I wanna be the star
In the middle of your everything.

Be the one who controls you
I want to be you king.
I want you to suffer.

I'm just still looking for a trade.
The deal I have is not working
He never even hears me speak
And with this new lack of concern
New management i seek.

Oh tell me are you willing
I want the finer things.
I'll take this gift
Your giving and all
The hell it brings.

I wanna be the star
In the middle of your everything.
Be the one who controls you
I want to be you king.

Suffer unto me,
I want you to suffer unto me,
Cause i'll be the new designer.
I gave you everything you gave away.
I gave you everything,
Thing to say.Suffer unto me.
