Eating Glass tracks

Lyrics


1. EATING GLASS

I stare at the window
Ccollecting interference
Sometimes my whole life's
A near death experience
Don't tell me
What's best for me
'Cause what's best for me
Is we disagree
Sometimes it feels like
Eating glass
Sometimes it fells like
Eating glass all the time
I measure the floor
Walking back and forth
The telephone don't ring
Doesn't give me anything
I am filled
With the need
Confident in knowing
That I need
Sometimes it feels like
Eating glass




2. JUST A MOMENT

The first thing
I think about
In the morning or at night
I can't tell anybody about it
'Cause I've told everybody about it
I been accused of running away
But this time
I think I'll hang around
Get myself back to higher ground
Just a moment
Locked up held down again
'Cause I'm living through someone else
I can't take off all of my problems
I can't handle it by myself
Everytime I turn around another
Parasite at my back
Count 2 - Get the fuck away
Or you gonna understand jacked up
It's the first thing I think about
The only thing I think about
I think it's time that you found out
What has happened to me
I want one thing totally clear
I've had your shit up to hear
I won't give up for free




3. STATIC ENERGY

The day after the day before
I wake up to an open door
And to surprise I walk right through
Well, shit what you gonna do
The night after I left behind
What we call social blindness
Static energy
Is nothing new to me
Static energy
Don't mean shit to me
And we talk about trying to die
And the meaning of life in pain
We continue on but we don't know why
...Yes we do




4. WE ARE ALL (Political Prisoners)

Do you ever wonder
How it would be
To truly live free
To tell the truth I don't want to know
And let independence grow
We don't waste time
Using our minds
'Cause it's the law
We are all
Political
Prisoners
Oh Lord, we're following you
So please tell us what to do
We'll buy what you think we need
And if you want us to we'll bleed
Another riot, another war
And who really cares what for
As long as it's good for us
Please tell us what's good for us
We are all
Political
Prisoners
Get over there
Stand in line
Give up your will
Give up your mind - give up
What makes you up
Everything you are
Get over there
It's feeding time
Opinion is now
An official crime
Shut up
Shut up
Shut up




5. YOU'RE FIRED

To tell the truth
I know the light
I punch the clock
I toe the line
Yeah toe the line
And the line is me
They say guilt is a state of mind
I find my name
And toe the line
Easily
You're fired
Disintegrate
You're fired
All I hate
You're fired
And don't forget
Everywhere is home
When you've got no place else to go
I've got
No place
Else to go
You're fired
Disintegrate




6. FINE

First she stopped me to take my hand
Then she turn and walk away
Lesson one
No black and white
No right or wrong
Now I know I won't forget
Everything she had to say
She said
I gave it all away
I'm giving it
Everyday
And I believe
In what she means to me
Just fine alone
I begin to understand
This time
I'll leave it alone
'Cause no one else
Ever took my hands
I know how it sounds to you
But what else
Can I possible do
When you deny yourself
When your life is posed
When there is no pain
When your eyes are closed
I believe
In what she means to me
Just fine alone




7. WAITING FOR THE BOMB TO DROP

Gettin' fat
Laid back
Fuckin' fact
Your dreams are gone
And they're never coming back
Waiting for the bomb to drop
So you turn your back and they
Stabbed it
Part of the truth
That you can't have
Waiting for the bomb to drop
Wait
And at the end of a long hard day
Turn the tube on
Blow your mind away
Waiting for the bomb to drop
And you look at your hands
Lines are getting deeper
Waiting for the bomb to drop
Wait




8. YOU'RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR LAST WAR

We've written rules
And obeyed laws
It's time to show'em who's the boss
And follow nameless cause
So ban the book
And clean the slate
They'll know the whole truth
When it's much too late
You're only as good as your last war
So fan the fire
And watch it burn
Talk about right
This time they're gonna learn
That you don't fuck
With authority
With authority
You're only as good as your last war
Lie to me
I need it
And then he laughed
And hung his head
'Cause he knew what it was like
To really be dead
It's apathy
Dead is apathy




9. STALEMATE

I know you lie
You lie
You lie...




10. BACK IN TIME

What are you gonna do
When your heroes are dead
And you're left with only
Inside of your head
And you're heart to heart with fear
What are you gonna do
When you finally realize
That you been whip shit kicked out lied to
It's time to lay down and die
What are you gonna do
When you're
Left with
Only
Yourself
Turn your back in time
There is no help
What are you gonna do
When your heroes are dead
It's all over - It's all been sad
And your definition of life is:
" I forgot "
What are you gonna do
When it all comes down
When you've been stepped on hard
Kicked around
And you can't give up what you never had
What are you gonna do




11. FRAGMENT

First I'm loyal to me
'Cause myself
Is all I really got
And why not
Another part of the hole in my life
That I'm digging through
What I tink I want by what I know
I need and what do I get
Just a fragment
Satisfaction
In knowing that
It's necer enough
Fragment
One thing that I know
Some people confuse laziness
With fear
Another cheap excuse
Avoid honesty
I don't care
Your lack of feeling is boring
Another fragment
Of wasted time
Do you always remember
To forget
Fragment




12. SOULED OUT

I - I have tried
But I can't get by
I can't get by
The smile
On the face
Of the one
I hate
I can't get by
I can't get by
Souled out
I - I have lied
But I don't know why
So help me
When I'm down
Broken up
Frozen ground
I can't get by
I can't get by
Souled out
What's so important
