1. THE FINAL EPISODE (LET'S CHANGE THE CHANNEL)

Oh my God.
Oh my God.
If only he knew,
If only he knew,
If only he knew about the world without the bullshit and the lies,
We could've saved him.
They could've saved me.
But instead I'm here drowning in my own fucking mind,
And I'll be damned if you're the death of me.

Blood and ink stain the walls.
Silently with bloodied knuckles, I carry on
Hoping it's not too wrong.
You said the nights were far too long.
'Honey, it's just the start of it.'

Oh my God.
If only he knew.
Oh my God.
If only he knew.
If only he knew!
If only he knew.

Just stand up and scream.
The tainted clock is counting down.
(Faster and fast!)
You gave in to me.
Would you say the nights are far too long now?
(Faster, faster and fast!)

Oh my God!
Oh my fucking God!

The tears that stain my cheek must make me look weak!
I wear them proudly!
I wear them proud!

Just stand up and scream.
The tainted clock is counting down.
(Faster and fast!)
You gave in to me.
Would you say the nights are far too long now?
(Faster, faster and fast!)

Your knife,
My back!
My gun,
Your head!
[x2]

You need a doctor baby,
You scared?
You need a doctor baby,
You scared?
You need a doctor baby,
You scared?
You need a doctor baby,
You scared,
You scared,
You scared!
Yeah!
You need a doctor baby,
You scared!
You need a doctor baby,
You scared!
You need a doctor baby!
You need a doctor baby!
You scared!




2. THE IRONY OF YOUR PERFECTION

One chance,
One shot
One bullet in the back of my head
And it came from the bottom of your heart
You couldn't find the words to tell me
So you went and found some bullets and shot me
What better than the kiss of a 9mm
To promote the heartbreak?

Goodbye to the paramour notes
We used to be such a finely scripted romance
But now you're all alone in watching me drown in our
Last tragedy that you so proudly painted

Oh God, how the bullet meets my lung
Just like the love it takes my breath away

Oh God, well now it's ended
But the last laugh belongs to me; listen up
This is my bullet of envy
This mess, the cracks in your heart
That's what you've created
This the heartache that only you've invented

Oh God, how the bullet meets my lung
Just like the love it takes my breath away

You're pulling the trigger, pacing the bullet against my heart
Screaming the point 4 so I can have a head start to exit
But I'll break back through with my bullet of envy
My bitter revenge before your sweet tragedy

Oh God, pull the trigger
Oh God, the pull of a trigger
Say something more
To preach the sudden silence
My last words before your
Gunshot




3. A CANDLELIT DINNER WITH INAMORTA

This isn't over, baby, don't believe a word they said!
But then,
She takes a moment to ponder,
To wonder what could've been given another chance!
To find a light in the darkness and a way out of this!
If only she could see what I could see!

She takes a moment to stumble to her feet.
If only I was there to hold her hand.
If only she saw what I saw,
She'd get out of this one!
She'd get out of here!

What burns the most is that you lied right to my face!
And, still, I hold your hand to set you free!
What burns the most is that you lied right to my face!
And, still, I hold your hand to set you free!
(To set you)

(Free!) With eyes closed,
Her heart breaks
And through it all,
She brought this on herself,
On herself.
With eyes closed,
Her heart breaks
And through it all,
She brought this on herself,
On herself.

For me,
For you,
The fallen.
Save her!
For us,
For me,
For good,
Save her!
[x2]

Save her!
She falls beside me!
She brought this on herself!
(This song's for)

(You!) With eyes closed,
Her heart breaks
And through it all,
She brought this on herself,
On herself.
With eyes closed,
Her heart breaks
And through it all,
She brought this on herself,
On herself.




4. NOBODY DON'T DANCE NO MORE

I'm alive!
I'm alive!

Watch yourself,
I'm taking over.
The cracks in the pavement won't break my stride.
I tread lightly,
I tread light!
I'm alive!

I can't believe what I've become,
I won't stop breathing.
Your world is falling at your feet,
I won't stop breathing.

Oh my God!
Yeah!

I can't believe what I've become,
I won't stop breathing.
Your world is falling at your feet,
I won't stop breathing.

Just 'cause you're breathing
Don't mean you're alive.
Excuses are useless
When your mouth's stapled shut.

I can't believe
What you've become,
I can't believe.
[x2]

Oh!

You're drowning in the back room!
so this is what it feels to waltz?
[x4]

What it feels to waltz!

I must be dreaming!
Demise is so surreal!

I must be dreaming!
I must be dreaming!
I must be dreaming!




5. I WAS ONCE POSSIBLY, MAYBE, PERHAPS A COWBOY KING

I see myself there waiting by the roadside
Laid claim to nothing but a black bag and the attire I stand in
No name, no history
Just a target on my temple and a hole in my head
I could've been one of kings
The shell of a boy of the man that I used to be
A monkey in a man suit
I stand here as nothing to you
Wind me up and watch me go
Lay down your guns
Cut me from ear to ear
Eye for an eye
The glass is long gone broken
I walk this road alone
No thanks to you
Load up your six-shot baby
Put it to my head
Pull the trigger, blank I'd figured
Put it to me, dead
Lay your guns down let me die (scars)
Why can't you just let me die (don't)
Lay your guns down let me die (heal)
Why can't you just let me die (when)
Lay your guns down let me die (you keep)
Scars don't heal when you keep cutting
Always cutting
Cutting deeper
Always deeper
Scars don't heal when you keep cutting




6. NOT THE AMERICAN AVERAGE

1, 2, 3, 4!
(All the things that she said, was it all in my head?)

Come on, baby,
Keep it down.
Honey, hush your lips.
Clothes trailing
From the backdoor
To the bedroom
And I don't even know your name.
Give me all you've got.
Make this night worth my time,
Make this worth my time (oh!)

What I would give to live this night again!
I knew when I first saw you,
You'd fuck like a whore!
You'd fuck like a whore!
Hope they hear you scream for more! (yeah!)

Your thighs were made for cheeks to graze.
My lips, your poison,
They bring you to your knees.
[x2]

Ah, come on!

Girl, get down,
It's almost over!
Take it all the way!
Oh!

You stupid fucking whore!

And after all of all my dreaming being only you,
You're standing there, baby, oh,
The things that I could do!
Back to the wall with a drink in my hand!
Back it up, baby, ride, ride, ride!

One step too late
And I never told you
That I can't take
Another disappointment.
Breathing and grasping all leads to another messy ending.
Breathing and grasping all leads to another messy ending.

Ten inch!
With your back against the wall!
With your face buried in the pillow!
I see you cold!
I feel you heartless!
Bitch!
You stupid fucking bitch!
You stupid fucking bitch!

Fucking bitch.
