(2007)
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Ashes

You don't understand me... And you probably never will!!
I got a tendency to self destruct... And a soft spot, for the filth!!
A hair trigger temperament... A switchblade, for a tongue!!
I'm a walking 1 man genocide... With a black belt, in corrupt!!

EVERYTHING I TOUCH TURNS TO ASHES!!
..FALLS AWAY!! ..IT FALLS AWAY!?
EVERYTHING I TOUCH TURNS TO ASHES!!??!!
..SLIPS RIGHT THROUGH MY HANDS!!??!!

..Love me!?
..Hate me!?!
Isolate me, everyday that I'm alive!!
Strait up mentally unstable!!
YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIKE MY LIFE!!

I'm a jinx, a curse;
..Some say, "THE WORST!!!"
I'm a savage, rabid beast!!
I've been called so many FUCKING things....It doesn't affect me in the least!!
I've stolen, lied, been crucified!! But I don't regret a thing!!
I'm an egocentric, masochist...With a sadist's point of bleak!!

EVERYTHING I TOUCH TURNS TO ASHES!!
...FALLS AWAY!! ..IT FALLS AWAY!!??!!
EVERYTHING I TOUCH TURNS TO ASHES!!??!!
..IT SLIPS RIGHT THROUGH MY HANDS!?!?

[bridge]
..Love me?!
..Hate me!?
Isolate me, everyday that I'm alive!!
Live to prove you wrong. it's easy...When your heart is filled with ice!!
Chapters In My Life Define Me!!
Changed me into this deprived...
Strait up, mentally unstable!!
YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIKE MY LIFE!!!

[guitar solo]

EVERYTHING I TOUCH TURNS TO ASHES!!
FALLS AWAY!! ..IT FALLS AWAY!!??!!
EVERYTHING I TOUCH TURNS TO ASHES!!??!!
...IT SLIPS RIGHT THROUGH MY HANDS!?!?

Salvation

Disgusted by your weakness!!
You have NO right to live!!
To know you... Is to HATE you!!
But your life's, yours to give!!

You monkey see: You monkey do!!
You're always doing what they tell you to!!
You're such a puppet on a string!!
YOU DON'T GET IT!!??!!

I won't bow to something that I've never seen.
I can't believe in something that doesn't believe in me!
I'm not Blood of Your Blood!
I'm no son of your God!!
I've no faith in your fate!!
..STILL I FIND SALVATION!!

[guitar solo]

YOU THINK YOU HAVE THE ANSWERS... TO EVERY LAST DETAIL!?!
IN YOUR EYES YOU'RE THE "VICTOR"!?!
IN MINE YOU'VE ALL, BUT FAILED!!!!

You monkey see: You monkey do!!
You're always doing what they tell you to!!
You're such a puppet on a string!!
YOU DON'T GET IT!!??!!

You monkey see: You monkey do!!
You're always doing what they tell you to!!
You're such a puppet on a string!!
YOU DON'T GET IT!!??!!

I won't bow to something that I've never seen.
I can't believe in something that doesn't believe in me!
I'm not Blood of Your Blood!
I'm no son of your God!!
I've no faith in your fate!!
..STILL I FIND SALVATION!!

...STILL I FIND SALVATION!!

The Bleeding

I remember when all the games began.
Remember every little lie
and every last goodbye.
Promises you broke, words you choked on
and I never walked away. Its still a mystery to me

Well I'm so empty
I'm better off without you and you're better off without me.
Well you're so UNCLEAN!!
I'm better off without you and YOU'RE BETTER OFF WITHOUT ME!!

THE LYING!!
THE BLEEDING!!
THE SCREAMING!!!
WAS TEARING ME APART!!
THE HATRED!!
DECEIVING!!
THE BLEEDING!!
IT'S OVER!!!

Paint the mirrors black (to forget you)
I still picture your face and the way you used to taste.
Roses in a glass dead and wilted.
To you this all was nothing,
everything to you is nothing

Well you're so filthy...
I'm better off without you and you're better off without me.
Well I'm so UGLY!!
You're better off without me and I'M BETTER OFF WITHOUT!!!

THE LYING!!
THE BLEEDING!!
THE SCREAMING!!
WAS TEARING ME APART!!!
THE HATRED!!
THE BEATINGS!!
DISASTER!!!
IT'S OVER!!

As wicked as you are...you're beautiful to me.
You're the darkest burning star, your MY PERFECT DISEASE!

THE LYING!!
THE BLEEDING!!
THE SCREAMING!!!
WAS TEARING ME APART!!
THE HATRED!!
THE BEATINGS!!
IT'S OVER!!!
DISASTER!!

A Place To Die

Its days like this I wish that I had stayed asleep!!
It's times like these that make it so difficult to be!!
The light at the end, the crack in the sky, there's NO promise for release!?!
No way for me to get away!!
And all I'm trying to do is breathe!!

[1st chorus]
Searching... For SOMETHING more!?
Searching.... For SOMETHING right!?
Searching... For a sense of clarity!!
Searching.... FOR A PLACE TO DIE!!!!

Days like this I really wish... I really wish I wasn't ME!!
Its times like this that make it hard... makes it hard to fucking see!!
No light at the end!! No crack in the sky!! EVERYONE ends up DECEASED!!
A life like mine makes a man!! Turns a grown man to a flea!!

[2nd chorus]

[guitar solo into bridge]

[bridge]
Piece by Piece, I slowly fade away... I slowly drift apart.
I see a different world, closing in on the future.
Sorry to be so cynical... but it's all I know!
Piece by Piece, I slowly start to change... I SLOWLY START TO CHANGE!!!!

Its days like this I wish that I had stayed asleep!!
It's times like these that make it SO difficult to be!!
No light in THE END!?! No crack in the sky!?!
EVERYONE ends up deceased!!!!
A LIFE LIKE MINE... MAKES A MAN!!
TURNS A GROWN MAN TO A FLEA!!!!!!

[last chorus]
SEARCHING... FOR A PLACE TO DIE!

White Knuckles

Oh, fuck it all!

[V1:]
Sick of being sick and tired, sick of understanding
Tired of feeling sick to my stomach
Demons inside command me

They're saying crush it, break it, smash it
Fuckin' kill 'em all!
Laugh as it falls away
I won't dodge another silver bullet
Just to save a little face

[Chorus:]
I want you to know, I want you to see
I want you to look beyond your own eyes
Past your afflictions

[V2:]
How many people really care?
How many will be standing?
I'll light the match, the flame, the fuse, the bomb
Rescue the world from slavery

I wanna torch it, burn it, scorch it, fuckin' stomp it out
Laugh as it blows away
I won't eat another rotten apple
Though I've grown to like the taste

[Chorus:]
I want you to know, I want you to see
I want you to look beyond your own eyes
Past your afflictions
I want you to hurt, want you to bleed
I want you to look beyond your own face
Past your infections

[Pre-Chorus:]
I'm taking back control with my knuckles
Taking back control with my knuckles
I'm taking back control with my knuckles
Taking back control with my knuckles

Smash it, burn it, break it, kill it
Fuck 'em all!

[Chorus:]
I want you to know, I want you to see
I want you to look beyond your own eyes
Past your afflictions
I want you to hurt, want you to bleed
I want you to look beyond your own face
Past your infections

Can't Heal You

The deeper you get,
the farther you fall down.
the closer I get,
the more you dissolve
You're lost inside
your pale addictions
Bury you with the demons in the ash
Can't heal you, don't want to, cause you can't save your fucking self.
Can't heal you, don't need to, cause you won't save yourself.
YOU ARE THE ONE who made the decision, stuck in a prison shattered and broken,
I am the one who expected to heal you save you from drowning in your endless nightmare.
Blessed be
The disillusioned
the banished misfit and the cursed hollow son
Can't heal you, I don't want to, cause you can't save yourself.
Can't help you, don't need to, cause you won't save yourself.

We're taught to perish, but fade away. Become the haunted and die as slaves.
Can't heal you, I don't want to, cause you can't save yourself.
Can't help you, don't need to, cause you won't save yourself
Can't heal you, don't want to, cause you can't save yourfuckingself.
Can't heal you, don't need to, cause you won't save yourself.
FUCK- FUCK, FUCK, FUCK!!!

Death Before Dishonor

[V1:]
To the haters, the takers, the liars, all the vultures and the bottom feeding scum
The FCC, the FBI and every tin god with a badge and a gun
You talk and talk, you preach and bitch but your words don't mean a thing
You get what you give, you give what you get
Just the way it's always been

[Chorus:]
I choose death before dishonor
I'd rather die than live down on my knees
Bury me like a soldier, with my dignity!

[V2:]
You imitate the ostracized, put your head beneath the sand
Your cup it runneth over, must be rough to live so grand
You reap what you sew, you pay what you owe unless you bathe yourself in greed
You rob and you take, your world is fake
There's no honor amongst the thieves

[Chorus:]
I choose death before dishonor
I'd rather die than live down on my knees
Bury me like a soldier, with my dignity!

[Pre-Chorus:]
Fuck!
You're self righteous, self pretentious
Your ways are not for me
You're deluded, so confused
Your world I dominate

[Chorus:]
I choose death before dishonor
I'd rather die than live down on my knees
Bury me like a soldier...

Bury me! (Bury me!)
Bury me! (Bury me!)
Bury me!

With my dignity!

Meet The Monster

[V1:]
It's not that complicated and you ain't gotta believe
They'll put me down in a hole before I let you succeed
I've never been complacent, I can't afford to be
I know you think you're special but you ain't nothin'

[Pre-Chorus:]
Can you read between the lines?
Or are you stuck in black and white?
Hope I'm on the list of people that you hate
It's time you met the monster that you have helped create
Boo!

[Chorus:]
You've pushed me one too many times
I'm sick of all of the bitchin, we're gonna settle it
You've pushed me one too many times
I'm sick of all of the shit, I'm gonna settle it!

[V2:]
It's not that complicated and you ain't gotta believe
They'll put me down in a hole before I let you succeed
I've never been complacent, I can't afford to be
I know you think you're special but you ain't nothin'

[Pre-Chorus:]
Well there's nothing you can say to me now
And there's nothing you can do to stop me
It's hard not to be a menace to society
When half the population is happy on their knees

[Chorus:]
You've pushed me one too many times
I'm sick of all of the bitchin, we're gonna settle it
You've pushed me one too many times
I'm sick of all of the shit, I'm here settle it!

[V3:]
'Cause I can't take it anymore
I refuse to live this way
It's not that I don't care enough, it's not that I can't see
It's everything inside of me that won't let me be you
It won't let me be you!

[V4:]
It's not that complicated and you ain't gotta believe
They'll put me down in a hole before I let you succeed
I've never been complacent, I can't afford to be
I know you think you're special but you ain't nothin'
No, you ain't nothin'
And you'll never succeed
I know you think you're special,
but you ain't nothin'

But you ain't nothin'!

Hate Me

[Bonus track]

It's not enough
It's not enough
It never was or will be
I never had the chance to thank you
(FOR RIPPING OUT MY HEART)

It's not enough
It's not enough
It never was or will be
I never got the chance to say
(FUCK YOU)

[Verse 1:]
I don't want to be your tourniquet
For minor lacerations
Don't wanna be your Romeo
Because you're no Goddamn Juliet
(you always did know just what to say; insult and injury)
(YOU JUST LOVE TO HATE ME!)

[Chorus:]
It's not enough
It's not enough
It never was or will be
I never had the chance to thank you
(FOR RIPPING OUT MY HEART)

It's not enough
It's not enough
It never was or will be
I never got the chance to say
(FUCK YOU)

[Verse 2:]
You've got a gun
I've got a gun
Let's write a tragic ending
Don't wanna be this way again
Don't wanna be the one to blame
(you can have the high roads; I'll take I, disguise the frailty)
(I JUST LOVE TO HATE YOU!)

[Chorus:]
It's not enough
It's not enough
It never was or will be
I never had the chance to thank you
(FOR RIPPING OUT MY HEART)

It's not enough
It's not enough
It never was or will be
I never got the chance to say
(FUCK YOU)

[Outro:]
(YOU JUST LOVE TO HATE ME!)
It's not enough
It's not enough
It never was or will be
I never had the chance to thank you
(FOR RIPPING OUT MY HEART)

It's not enough
It's not enough
It never was or will be
I never got the chance to say
(FUCK YOU)

Never Enough

I'm so fed up with everyone around me
(No one seems to care)
I'm just so far gone and nothing's gonna change
(I'll never be the same)

It's always do this, do that,
Everything they want to
I don't wanna live that way
Every chance they get they're always
Pushin' me away

It's never enough
No, it's never enough
No matter what I say
It's never enough
No, it's never enough
I'll never be what you want me to be

It's all so messed up and no one ever listens
(Everyone's deranged)
I'm just so fucked up and I'm never gonna change
(Wanna lay it all to waste)

They always say this, say that,
Nothing that you want to
I don't wanna live that way
Every chance they get they're always
Shovin' me aside

It's never enough
No, it's never enough
No matter what I say
It's never enough
No, it's never enough
I'll never be what you want me to be

I'm done!

In the end we're all just chalk lines on the concrete
Drawn only to be washed away
For the time that I've been given
I am what I am

I'd rather hate you
For everything you are
Than ever love you
For something you are not

I'd rather you hate me
For everything I am
Than have you love me
For something that I ain't

It's never enough
It's never enough
No matter what I say

It's never enough
No, it's never enough
No matter who I try to be

It's never enough
No, it's never enough
No matter how I try to taste

It's never enough
Never, never enough
I'll never be what you want me to be.

Stranger Than Fiction

It's stranger than fiction,
How you decay
It must be so lonely,
Lost within your ways

You're born alone,
You die alone
The rest is yours
To fill the gap
The world goes on,
Without you here
The just of,
Just collapse

Is this what you wanted to be?
Alone standing by yourself
Is this all you wanted to be?
Or was that a cry for help?

By yourself
By yourself
By yourself

Verbal grenades,
You throw inane
I can't believe
You'd stoop so low
Of all the things,
You took away
I miss my mind
The most

Is this what you wanted to be?
Alone standing by yourself
Is this all you wanted to be?
Or was that a cry for help?

By yourself
By yourself
By yourself

Is this what you wanted to be?
Alone standing by yourself
Is this all you wanted to be?
Or was that a cry for help?

Is this what you wanted to be?
Alone standing by yourself
Is this all you wanted to be?
Or was that a cry for help!?

It's stranger than fiction,
How you decay
It must be so lonely,
Lost within your ways
