Lyrics

1. BLEED THE FREAK

My cup runneth over
Like blood from a stone

[Chorus]
These stand for me
Name your god and bleed the freak
I like to see
How you all would bleed for me

When the pig runs slower
Let the arrow fly
When the sin lies bolder
I'll pluck out thine eye
[Chorus]

If you scorn my lover
Satan got your thigh
If you steal in hunger
I will kick you when you try

[Chorus]




2. QUEEN OF THE RODEO

My daddy was a trucker
Left home when I was three
He fell for some dude in Austin
Then it was mom and me
She always wanted a daughter
Well look at what she got
A'hit me, beat me, a faggot I ain't
But a real man they say I'm not
I'm the queen, queen of the rodeo
Queen, queen of the rodeo
So cowboy, if you're lookin for lovin'
I ain't no queer, go fuck a steer
"I think there's one over there..."
I drink too much, I smoke too much
I'm a human waste
I buy a lot of cheap alcohol
But I'll tell ya honey, I really hate the taste
I dressed in drag, they call me a fag
But boy, I really don't care
Cause last night I met your girlfriend, sucker
And I hope ya like to share, cause she did
I'm the queen, queen of the rodeo
Queen, queen of the rodeo
So cowboy, if you're lookin to fight
I ain't no wimp, I scratch and bite
"And I'm gonna kick your ass too..."
Queen, queen of the rodeo
FUCK YOU!
Queen, queen of the rodeo
Queen, queen of the rodeo




3. ANGRY CHAIR

Sitting on an angry chair
Angry walls that steal the air
Stomach hurts and I don't care

What do I see across the way
See myself molded in clay
Stares at me, yeah I'm afraid
Changing the shape of his face

Candles red I have a pair
Shadows dancing everywhere
burning on the angry chair

Little boy made a mistake
Pink cloud has now turned to gray
All that I want is to play
Get on your knees, time to pray, boy

I don't mind, yeah
I don't mind,
I don't mind, yeah,
I don't mind,
Lost my mind, yeah
But I don't mind,
Can't find it anywhere
I don't mind

Corporate prison, we stay
I'm a dull boy, work all day
So I'm strung out anyway

Loneliness is not a phase
Field of pain is where I graze
Serenity is far away

Saw my reflection and cried
So little hope that I died
Feed me your lies, open wide
Weight of my heart, not the size

I don't mind, yeah
I don't mind,
I don't mind, yeah,
I don't mind,
Lost my mind, yeah
But I don't mind,
Can't find it anywhere
I don't mind

Pink cloud has now turned to gray
All that I want is to play
Get on your knees time to pray, boy




4. MAN IN THE BOX

I'm the man in the box
Buried in my shit
Won't you come and save me, save me

[Chorus]
Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut?
Jesus Christ, deny your maker
He who tries, will be wasted
Feed my eyes now you've sewn them shut

I'm the dog who gets beat
Shove my nose in shit
Won't you come and save me, save me

[Chorus]




5. LOVE,HATE,LOVE

I tried to love you I thought I could
I tried to own you I thought I would
I want to peel the skin from your face
Before the real you lays to waste

You told me I'm the only one
Sweet little angel you should have run
Lying, crying, dying to leave
Innocence creates my hell

Cheating myself still you know more
It would be so easy with a whore
Try to understand me little girl
My twisted passion to be your world

Lost inside my sick head
I live for you but I'm not alive
Take my hand before I kill
Still love you, I still burn

Love,hate,love




6. ROOSTER

Ain't Found A Way To
Kill Me Yet
Eyes Burn With Stinging
Sweat
Seems Every Path Leads Me To
Nowhere
Wife And Kids And Household Pet
Army Green Was No Safe Bet
The Bullets Scream To Me From Somewhere

Here They Come To Snuff The Rooster
Yeah Here Come The Rooster
You Know He Ain't Gonna Die

Walkin' Tall Machine Gun Man
They Spit On Me In My Homeland
Gloria Sent Me Pictures
Of My Boy
Got My Pills 'Gainst
Mosquito Death
My Buddy's Breathin'
His Dyin' Breath
Oh God Please Won't You Help
Me Make It Through




7. WOULD?

Know me broken by my master
Teach thee on child of love hereafter

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way

Drifting body it's sole desertion
Flying not yet quite the notion

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way

Am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home
Have I gone?
And left you here alone
Am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home
Have I gone?
And left you here alone

If i would , could you ?




8. JUNKHEAD

A Good Night, The Best In A Long Time
A New Friend Turned Me On To An Old Favorite
Nothing BetterThan A Dealer Who's High
Be High, Concince Them To Buy

What's My Drug Of Choice?
Well, What Have You Got?
I Don't Go Broke
And I Do It Alot

Seems So Sick To The Hypocrite Norm
Running Their Boring Drills
But We Are An Elite Race Of Our Own
The Stoners, Junkies, And Freaks

Are You Happy? I Am, Man
Content And Fully Aware
Money, Status, Nothing To Me
'Cause Your Life Is Empty And Bare

You Can't Understand A User's Mind
But Try, With Your Books And Degrees
If You Let Yourself Go And Open Your Mind
I'll Bet You'd Be Doing Like Me
And It Ain't So Bad

Say, I Do It Alot!
Say, I Do It Alot!
Say, I Do It Alot!
Say, I Do It Alot!




9. DIRT

I Have Never Felt Such Frustration
Or Lack Of Self Control
I Want You To Kill Me
And Dig Me Under, I Wanna Live No More

One Who Doesn't Care Is One Who Shouldn't Be
I've Tried To Hide Myself From What Is
Wrong For Me, For Me

I Want To Taste Dirty, A Stinging Pistol
In My Mouth, On My Tongue
I Want You To Scrape Me From The Walls
And Go Crazy Like You've Made Me

You, You Are So Special
You Have The Talent To
Make Me Feel Like Dirt
And You, You Use Your
Talent To Dig Me Under
And Cover Me With Dirt




10. THEM BONES

I Believe Them Bones Are Me
Some Say We're Born Into The Grave
I Feel So Alone
Gonna End Up A Big Ole Pile A Them Bones

Dust Rise Right On Over My Time
Empty Fossil Of The New Scene
I Feel So Alone
Gonna End Up A Big Ole Pile A Them Bones

Toll Due Bad Dream Come True
I Lie Dead Gone Under Red Sky
I Feel So Alone
Gonna End Up A Big Ole Pile A Them Bones




11. GOD AM

Dear god, how have you been, then?
I'm not fine, fuck pretending
All of this death you're sending
Best throw some free heart mending

Invite you in my heart, then
When done, my sinds forgiven?
This god of mine relaxes
World dies i still pay taxes

Can i be as my god am
Can you be as god am
Can i be as my god am
God of all my god am

So lord, i see you grinnin'
Must be grand always winning
How proud are you being able
To gather faith from fable

Can i be as my god am
Can you be as god am
Can i be as my god am
God of all my god am
God am
My god am
God am
God

All this respect i'm giving
Shared strength acquired by livin'
All bloomin' life youre feeding
Can't hide sick ones you're weeding

Can i be as my god am
Can you be as god am
Can i be as my god am
God of all my god am
God am
God am
God am




12. AGAIN

Hey
Let them do it again
Yeah
Hey
You said you were my friend

Hey
Turn me upside down
Hey
Feelin' so down
Hey
Hey

Hey
I know i made the same mistakes
I
I won't do it again, no
Why
Why you slap me in the face, ow
I
I didn't say it was okay, no
No
No

Hey
You had time to think it out, yeah
Hey
Your weak will won't help her heal
Her heart, no

Hey
I'll bet it really eats you up




13. A LITTLE BITTER

How the mind does shout for rest
When the bodies shaken, yeah
Oh the tightness in my chest
Still your leaves I'm raking

Lord is this a test
Was it fun creating, yeah?
My god's a little sick
And he wants me crazy

Who
Are you
Who can say
It's ok to live through me?

Live to be
Part of me
You're a wrinkled magazine
Yeah

Was it something that I said?
Was it how they're breaking, yeah
I'm so selfish, paying your rent
While your blood I'm taking

You
Spend me
Like a tree
Dirty dollar bills for leaves
Dark in a sea
Of my seeds
And the tears on which you feed

You feed

The body is a temple
A dormant alter
To where infantile men lie around
Itching and nibbling
For a small piece of sanity
Of which you can not give

Shit!

Individuality
Buying pennies with my soul
And a little Heaven spent
While the Hell I'm taking

Thieves
Parasites
Hide from life
You know they'll remember me

They are abhored
In self-worth
All that matters much to me




14. DAM THAT RIVER

I Broke You In The Canyon
I Drowned You In The Lake
You A Snake That I Would Trample
Only Thing I'd Not Embrace

Oh, You Couldn't Dam That River
And Maybe I Don't Give A Damn Anyway
So You Couldn't Dam That River
And It Washed Me So Far Away

I Pushed And Then You Stumbled
I Kicked You In The Face
You Stare At Me So Hollow
Got To Keep That Killin' Pace

Oh, You Couldn't Dam That River
And Maybe I Don't Give A Damn Anyway
So You Couldn't Dam That River
And It Washed Me So Far Away

I Burned The Place Around You
I Hit You With A Rake
You Piss Upon My Candle
So Proving You're A Fake
