Lyrics

1. O.G. LOKO

I'm coming in hot,
I'm coming in fast!
Take my time,
It's so damn hard!

I'll make this last,
I'm the artist.
Paints in white,
Your skin canvas.

I'll leave you scratching, gasping, screaming, screaming...
I was lost until I found myself inside of you.
My friend, my love, my life, my truth be told I would set
my whole world on fire just to watch it burn in your eyes. (In your eyes!)

Meet my dedication, Inspiration.
It may be smothering you but you know it's the truth.
(x2)

Set my world on fire, it caught spark in your eyes.
And now I could see myself with no other baby.
I've had you so many times,
But you know I could never get enough of your love!
I could never get enough, I could never get enough of your love!

Meet my dedication, Inspiration.
It may be smothering you but you know it's the truth.

I'm still here, this is faithfulness at it's finest!




2. BEN THREW

Loose lips sink ships,
So I'll keep silent.
I suggest your words stay in your mouth!
It's never ending,
the cycles ascending.
People keep asking,
I'm not here!

I don't really think that you've ever walked a mile in my shoes!
I don't really think that you know what I've been through!
What I've been through!

All your life, I wish you would have learned to swallow your pride
and stop preaching, I know what you're thinking,
You're so far above me in your mind.
All the power and glory forever
We share this together!
I will never! I will remember what I've become!

I'm finding out the only thing left to lose is time.
With all these doubts, the worst parts behind me.

Don't forgive me please I don't want this,
Only when I'm back at home I will!
Only when I'm back at home I will.

Don't forgive me, I'll forget you, write this on the wall,
You don't know what I've been through!
I've been through!
I've been through!
I've been through!




3. LET LIVE

I was all for you, you fell over my love,
I just can't afford it this time.

Here's a story, just bare with me,
Met a drug that changed my life.
Something like a classic movie,
Just one look, all stopped with time.
Let her in through these very veins,
Coursing through these tired bones
Numb my body, healed my heart,
Soothes my mind, and eased my soul

These are the memories between us,
Let it go, and let live again.

I was all for you, you fell over my love,
I just can't afford it this time.
I was all for you, you fell over my love,
I just can't afford it this time.

You let me live, believing all your life.
You let me live your lie, live your lie.

You let me believe, and live you lie.

Guess I should have seen this coming,
Should have known it all along.
You're a fake, see clear right through you,
Left me dying, it's all your fault.

These are the memories between us,
Let it go, and let live again.

I was all for you, you fell over my love,
I just can't afford it this time.
I was all for you, you fell over my love,
I just can't afford it this time.

I gave you everything, and you just throw away.
Know what I deserve, know that I should let, let you go.

Let you go. This is me, letting you go…

I was all for you, you fell over my love,
I just can't afford it this time.
I was all for you, you fell over my love,
Now I'm left with thoughts of suicide…

Let you go, you're killing me.




4. STILL YDG'N

You play these games, baby honestly?
It's such a shame, you think you control me.
Control my life, and everything around,
I've got my feet on solid ground.

I'm gonna push you away,
with every word that you say.
I'm gonna push you away, away…

I've let you win too many times.
If I gave you my life, it'd be my demise.
I'll keep my pride.

This is what I have become in my life,
I won't be deterred by your guilt or your strife.
These are the words back and forth in my mind,
I won't be brought down by your games and your pride.

Sinking apologies, knowing you're leaving me on my own.
Sinking apologies, knowing you're leaving me, all alone.

You won't bring me down.
I've got my feet on solid ground.
You won't bring me down.
I've got my feet on solid ground.

You said you'd stay, then left me alone.
I can't believe you're fine with what you've done.
Never again, I've watched you change with time.
You're heart is filled with cold, your mouth is full of lies.

If I gave you my life it'd be my demise.
I'll keep my pride, I've let you win too many times.

Sinking apologies, knowing you're leaving me on my own.
Sinking apologies, knowing you're leaving me, all alone.
All alone.




5. MY UNDERSTANDINGS

I don't mind it,
I don't mind if you're overrated.
Or if you're staring at the edge of the world.
But keep in mind that I'm a sore eye,
with blurry vision but I can see,
yeah it has to be you love,
that I've been dreaming of.
And if we climb this high,
I swear we'll never die.
(x2)




6. OHIOISONFIRE

It's all been said,
I'm a nightmare and I'm going crazy!
You're going nowhere so I'm taking you with me, myself, and I,
Is all I've got and I don't give a.. .
What you say this time!
You think you know about me?
Well I think you're nothing!
False words fall dead,
I won't pretend.
I wish you were dead!
I won't pretend.
I wish you were dead!

It just might be me out of line,

You know that I'm a nightmare and I'm going crazy!
You're going nowhere so I'm taking you with me,
taking you with me!

This is what you get when you fuck
with a classic roundabout.
But it just might be me out of line.
(x2)

Feel the weight on my shoulders,
your legs are giving out.
Can't scream, can't make a sound,
I'm dying just to keep sane.
You'd give up before you let me live.
You'd give up before you let me live.
You know that I, I'm not better off dead.
I'm here alive and I'm relentless!
I'm relentless!
I'm relentless!
I'm relentless!

This is what you get when you fuck
with a classic roundabout.
But it just might be me out of line.
(x2)

I'm relentless!
I'm relentless!
I'm relentless!




7. PURIFIED

All night, I dream of water
That can wash the weight of the world
From my shoulders.

All night, I dream of water
That can wash the weight of the world
From my shoulders.

Hands of the new one,
We need you so,
To make way for the new born,
To be king again.

All night, an endless fire,
Wanting to only fly away and grow older.

No escape, no escape,
Please pray this is just a dream. (Just a dream)
Fight fire with fire,
This is coming clean, coming clean.
These are the words…

These are the words of my holiday,
craving the sea, that honest place.
Soothe my mind, with everything honest,
Yeah give me my solace.
Soothe my mind, with everything honest, yeah give me my…

All night, I dream of forever,
hiding myself from the world, that's grown colder.

I wanna be stronger than oceans.
I wanna lift mountains high.
Bring back glory to your name,
I wanna move faster than time.

I wanna be stronger than oceans.
I wanna lift mountains high.
Bring back glory to your name,
I wanna move faster than time.

Mountains, oceans, I wanna see waves.

These are the words of my holiday,
craving the sea, that honest place.
Soothe my mind, with everything honest,
Yeah give me my solace.
Soothe my mind, with everything honest, yeah give me my…

All night (all night) I dream of water,
to fight the fire.
Am I awake?
Cause I wanna see waves.




8. PRODUCT OF A MURDERER

It consumes me, controls me, leaves me with nothing,
But you know that I love how it taste!
Fear and the fate, I'll change face to get what I crave.
Fill my veins!

This gets me by.
(You know it feels good,
You know it feels so good!)

The drugs that keep me high.
(You know it feels good,
But you know that it all feels so fake!)

Product of a murderer,
You stole everything from me!
Fhis poison hurts, feels so empty,
fill my veins with this sin.
Shaking on the ground,
My head's going crazy from within!

Cold sweats, shaking in my shame.
Heart stops, dying where I lay.

This gets me by.
(You know it feels good,
you know it feels so good!)

The drugs that keep me high.
(You know it feels good, you know it feels so good!)
The drugs that keep me high.

Sense of reality, perception falls, feels so empty.
Cold sweats, the pain, skin crawls, the shame.
Please save me!
Please save me!

This is the way that I wanted to live,
but you know I was scared of the world,
praying it all would go away.
(x3)




9. REPEATING APOLOGIES

I hope you know,
I swear, I've never done this before,
And I care, I'm so sorry.
Scarred you for life.
Please come back to me,
down on my knees.
Repeating apologies.

Why do I deny the heart that's grown colder.
Too quick to criticize the lullaby.
Why do I deny the heart that's grown colder.
Too quick to criticize.

Sweet serenity,(I wish you sweet serenity!)
Sweet serenity, (Sweet serenity!)

Back on the mistakes I've made,
Please come home to me, I'll show you truth,
I'm all for you, I'll hold your hand.
Ease your mind, yeah we'll be okay.
Repeating apologies.

Why do I deny...

Stay here with me, let what I am,
let it speak more, more than words.
They can't compete with,
it's always been you and me.

Why do I deny the heart that's grown colder.
Too quick to criticize the lullaby.
Why do I deny the heart that's grown colder.
Too quick to criticize.

Sweet serenity, (I wish you sweet serenity!)
Sweet serenity, (Sweet serenity!)

I hope you know, I hope you know,
I've never done this before,
done this before, and I,
I hope you know,
I hope you know,
Baby you're not alone.
You're not alone.
(You've ruined me!)

I hope you know,
I swear I've never done this before.
And I care, I bet you're sorry you've lied to my face.
All these words that I say are the words
That I wanted to hear from you to me.




10. THE GREAT HENDOWSKI

I met a guy with some coins in his can,
His face was weathered, dark and sad.
He looked up to me and asked something I'll never forget.
He said, "How can you smile with your lips
Wrapped around a loaded gun? How can you smile?
Look at this life, is this all we've got?"

And my reply was quick,
Read this book, you were meant to live.
It all means so much to me,
But note what's written in red, it says...
It speaks of hope, trust and love.
The fear of never being good enough.
We were all made the same, I know it's tough.
Please don't give up!

Don't speak that way,
Cause I won't allow you.

You're too young to live this way.
Just close your eyes and see the true meaning.
You're too young to live this way,
Just look around and see that life is beauty.

How can you smile when this life is all we've got?
There's no hole inside, no time that's long enough,
That can be saved or healed, there's nothing that
Can't be covered with love!

Don't speak that way,
Cause I won't allow you.

You're too young to live this way.
Just close your eyes and see the true meaning.
You're too young to live this way,
Just look around and see that life is beauty.

This world is not, this world is not
My home, I'm just passing through!
There's hope, there's love, I know there is a void.
There's hope and there is love,
But there's no void that can't be covered with love!




11. I'M A MONSTER

And I can't stress enough,
How much this song is only about you
You'd like that now won't you,
So I'll keep it short.

For every backstabbing lie and the whispers,
I'll shove this down your throat
You know there's no where to hide,
No way out alive,
I'll eat your heart,
I'm a monster.

No where to hide,
No way out alive,
I'll eat your heart,
I'm a monster.

I'm so sick of your kind,
Get the fuck out of my life
I'm so sick of your kind,
I'm a, I'm a fucking monster!
Monster! I'm a monster!

I swear, there's no where to hide
I swear, I'll eat you alive
I'm sick, so sick of your kind,
Get out, get out of my life!

For every backstabbing lie and the whispers,
I'll shove this down your. . .




12. WHEN YOU CAN'T SLEEP AT NIGHT

Here in this world,
I'm awaked with mistakes,
But it's love that keeps fueling me, fueling me.

Pretty little lady with your swollen eyes,
Would you show them to me?
I know I'm not that perfect,
But you stay a while, baby then you will see.

Miles away I could still feel you lay
Your head down on my embrace.
My embrace, far away.

Pretty little lady with your swollen eyes,
Would you show them to me?
I know I'm not that perfect,
But you stay a while, baby then you will see.

Don't give up baby,
I know that it's shaky.
Just let love consume us,
Consume us.

Here in this world,
I'm awaked with mistakes,
But it's love that keeps fueling me,
Fueling me to love you.

Miles away I could still feel you lay
Your head down on my embrace.
Be not afraid to love me.

Pretty little lady with your swollen eyes,
Would you show them to me?
I know I'm not that perfect,
But you stay a while, baby then you will see.
