Four Wall Blackmail tracks

Lyrics


1. BURGUNDY

Desperately waiting on something thats more than nothing.
I've been here forever waiting just to see your hands.
If you hear me cry, Its just something Im always doing.
Desperately waiting this wait, I hope it'll be over soon.

Cry

When you cried, when you died
When you told me you'd open my eyes
When you cried, when you died
When you told me you'd open my eyes

Desperately waiting on something thats more than nothing.
Burgundy blood pouring over my head, its so warm.
I've been here forever basking in this lonely river.
Im desperately waiting on you. I hope it'll be over soon.

Cry

When you cried, when you died
When you told me you'd open my eyes
When you cried, when you died
When you told me you'd open my eyes
I believed you.




2. THE CORPORATE ENTHUSIAST

The corporate beast has got me. I???e fallen in the trap.
This beast it feeds on me. I??¦ never coming back.

You???e sucked the truth out of me. Abolished honesty.
I can??° escape, it??? got me. Independence dying slowly.

Welcome to the Machine
Welcome to the Machine
It??? eating me alive.
Welcome to the Machine
Welcome to the Machine
Sell out your life or die.

In pursuit of your polished altars, you dream in presidents.
Sell your god, sell your faith, and market prices rising fast.

I never asked for this. My intentions were pure.
I never meant to enlist in the corporate music war.

Welcome to the Machine
Welcome to the Machine
It??? eating me alive.
Welcome to the Machine
Welcome to the Machine
Sell out your life or die.

Your world is painted mint green.
You believe green is everything.

This machine has taken me away.
This machine has got me.

The corporate beast has got me. I???e fallen in the trap.
This beast it feeds on me. I??¦ never coming back.

Welcome to the Machine
Welcome to the Machine
It??? eating me alive.
Welcome to the Machine
Welcome to the Machine
Sell out your life or die.




3. A GREEN DESIRE

I want to see your eyes. The light, the tunnel.
I need to feel your love. This fight, my struggle.
Which hand should I cut off? My life in shambles.
I'll lose my life right here. But what for, I'm coming home.

And I will meet you (there)

I'm heading nowhere fast. I need your hands.
Which breath will be my last? It's gone, my past.
Love with a broken heart. I'm here alone.
I'm getting taken away. I hope you're coming soon.

And I will meet you (there)

Grab my hand and take me home.

Will you be there to grab my hand and take me away?

I want to see your eyes.
I need to feel your love.
Which hand should I cut off?
I'll lose my life right here.




4. FOUR WALL BLACKMAIL

These four walls have seen the worst of me.
They're bleeding confession, but they'll never speak.
These four walls have seen the life I truly lead.
They're crying depression. They're weak in the knees.

Right on the floor.

Please walls, stay quiet
Reputation is on the line.
Please God, stay quiet.
Don't let them know you're watching me die.

Falling down.
The waves are crashing in on me again.
Falling down.
The walls are closing in on me again.
Falling down.
The waves are crashing in on me again.
Falling down.
I feel the weight, I feel the weight again.

And If you open up your heart you'll see
I'm only human. Let me be me.
And if you could open up your heart you'll see
This wasn't my intent. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Right on the floor.

Please walls, stay quiet
Reputation is on the line.
Please God, stay quiet.
Don't let them know you're watching me die.

Falling down.
The waves are crashing over me again.
Falling down.
The walls are closing in on me again.
Falling down.
The waves are crashing in on me again.
Falling down.
I feel the weight, I feel the weight again.

Right on the floor.




5. AUGUST WINTERMAN

And If I could teach the world to be..
I'd teach them all to be something just like me.
Frustrated, bitter, depressing.

Perfect. As if my wings were like yours
Perfect. As if my wings were like yours
But I'm falling down.

And if you could hold your tongue long enough..
You'd see that all I am is love, but I don't like me.
I despise me.

Perfect. As if my wings were like yours
But I'm falling down.
Perfect. As if my wings were like yours
Perfect. But I'm falling down.

It's a disease they'll never have a cure for.
But You're the only way to dry my eyes.
It's a disease, they'll never have a cure
But I'm the one who's wrong. I'm the one who cries.
It's a disease, they'll never have a cure for.
It's a disease, they'll never have a cure
But I'm the one whose wrong. I'm the one who cries.

I cry. I despise me.




6. OLLIE OTSON

I see your eyes x-ray my insides.
You??®e screaming death to me, waiting for me to die.
I see your eyes x-ray my insides.
The rockstar autopsy. You need what used to be.
I see your eyes x-ray my insides.
A stubborn glance, a chance to watch me all unwind
I see your eyes x-ray my insides
I wish you??? grab my hand ?…¶ause we??®e falling fast.

You and me ?looks like the last time we hold hands.

I want you back.
I need you back.

I see your eyes x-ray my insides.
This pedestal for me is getting way too high
I see your eyes x-ray my insides.
So either watch me fall or watch me die
I see your eyes x-ray my insides.
A stubborn glance, a chance to watch me all unwind
I see your eyes x-ray my insides.
I wish I had your hand, ?…¶ause we??®e falling fast.

You and me ?looks like the last time we hold hands.

I want you back.
I need you back.

X-ray my inside.
?…?ause we??®e falling fast.

Looks like the last time we hold hands.
Looks like the last time we hold hands.
Looks like the last time.
Looks like the last time.




7. BLISS TEARING EYES

Cuz you bleed all the time.

The pieces of a broken heart,
are wasted time.

And I can't forgive myself for all the things I've done,
but you you do.

(Bleed one more time for me, cuz my heart is filled lonliness and this world is filled with lonliness. Bleed one more time for me, cuz the struggles of this world are blistering, blistering.)

Your cells run through my veins,
the times you lifted under me.

That's me again.

I can't forgive myself for all the things I've done,
but you you do.

[Chorus:]

Bleed one more time for me cuz the struggles of this world are blistering, blistering.

Cuz you, bleed all the time.




8. STEREOCHILD

(Your tradition!)
Im getting so sick of creating
(Your tradition!)
this music to please you
(Your tradition!)
The way it used to be
(Your tradition!)
is the very thing that blinds you.

Thats why you cant see my God move!(x3)
cause this is not then, and Im not like you.

(Damnation!)
Your excuse for good advice.
(Damnation!)
Their mouths are wide, but you feed them lies
(Reputation!)
Youre full of indecency.
(Reputation!)
You are exactly the portrait they painted you to be.

Stereo Child(x8)

Thats why you cant see, My God move!(x3)
cause this is not then, and Im not like you.

You refuse to speak, and they'll listen.(x4)

But I wont be predicted.
I wont be your stereo.
I wont be predicted, never.




9. ARLINGTON ARMS

I watch the walls fall down on Suburbia.
Land of the free, home of the self-enslaved.
On you.
I watched them bleed, I watched them fall to their face.
I watched them scream as they pray for a taste.
Of you. (Watching the walls fall down)

But I won??° fall on the knife that killed the American dream.

So let us grieve at the fall of Suburbia.
The dreams we???e made are shoved in the face
Of you.
So get a taste of what was meant to be.
Fall in the waste of what was meant to be
For you. (Watching the walls fall down)

But I won??° fall on the knife that killed the American dream.

Watching the walls fall down.

I watch the walls fall down on Suburbia.
Land of the free, home of the self-enslaved.
On you.
I watched them bleed, I watched them fall to their face.
I watched them scream as they pray for a taste.
Of you. (Watching the walls fall down)

Watching the walls fall down.




10. TELL MYSELF GOODBYE

These words roll of my tongue like second nature.
But I'm far from my womb, and you know I'm far from you.
So when do I come back to you?
Was this already written or have I fallen so far?I can??° tell the light from the dark.

I thought you had me forever.
But I'm sure you thought the same about me.
And I'm sorry, so sorry.

These dreams run through my head that frolic through some tube of my brain.
I'm going insane, I???e forgotten my name.
So I'll use yours, like a dropped friend I wish I never left.
I wish I never left you. I wish I never left you.
I can??° tell the light from the dark.

I thought you had me forever.
But I'm sure you thought the same about me.
And I'm sorry, so sorry.

Winter'S come early this year.
Like a bird in the rain, I've tortured my everything.

The rain falls, and I never meant to leave you standing.
