Peaceful Day

Listen up everyone there's something wrong
We got the answers in our sights now

But somehow still we struggle along

Looking for solutions in a threatening sky

But we never get an answer

Just a chorus of voices wondering why

We're stuck here without a peaceful day

It's a promise in the night I'll be okay

The superlative is telling me that help is on the way

Won't someone tell me how will I make it through today

Looking towards the future and all I can see

Is the next generation looking back

With pity on me

Hunting for some insight or mean to change

But do we have the will to or will our

Future look the same

How can I live when you won't let me in

How can I die without reasons why

How can I laugh when I want to cry

How can I go on with nothing nowhere

How will I make it

 
 

Waste of Time

I've got a question for all you sinners
Have you ever wondered is this all there is to life?

A quick adventure not much to mention

A slow procession leading us to die

Or is there a heaven a distant valley

A golden meadow waiting for us in the sky

No one right answer spirit seems broken

Still I just can't help but wonder why

Seems like a tragic waste of time

Who cares what happens when you die?

Life's too short to wonder why

Get on with your life

In towering churches and holy temples

They all conspired to tell me how to live my life

But no religion or new theism

Could ever provide proof to quench my mind

And now I wonder whos's sky I'm under

Is there a heaven waiting for me when I die

No one right answer spirit seems

And still I can't help but wonder why

So many questions I can't tell the difference

Too many abstract thoughts now wrestle in my mind

But through the darkness somewhere should be waiting

A final truth to shower me with light

Their pearls of wisdom and tales of glory

They fed me nicely until I found it was all a lie

No one right answer spirit seems broken

And still I can't help but wonder why

 
 

Perfect People

All the perfect people sha
Staring back at me on tv in magazines

look so good like a box of fresh twinkies

What the hell happened to me?

So I took a drive to a rich and wealthy country

Saw everything I wanted and everything I need

Went right up and tried to join their party

You oughta seen the look when they saw me

Fucked up eyes stupid grin

Perfect people won't let me in

Who's who list where's my name

They won't let me join their game

I bet that you think that I'm insane

There's no one left for me to blame

Screw the perfect people

Fuck they all look the same

We're not much to look at

Too short dumb and so fat

Never gonna win a beauty pageant its a curse

Always gonna be a better doorman

At the best clubs

How could things be any worse?

Don't have much to go on don't want your opinion

Don't have much to gain and I ain't got much to lose

Looks like you got it all and I'd really like to

Get some

You got something I could use

 
 

Every Single Day

See all the people longing to be
Living their lives regretlessly

Trying to repress the pain in their lives

Reassuring themselves living with lies

No way to break through not on my own

Can't push away all the sorrow I've known

Have to release every thought or care

And take control life is a dare

I can start over today

Live my life a different way

Can't find a way to erase bad times to make

Everything OK

I'll start over and live every single day

Regrest and memories no remorse no apologies

No reason for me to despair no future at all

Ask if I care

I got time on my side twenty four hours in my life

Can't hang on to what's in my past

Full speed ahead hard and fast

At the end with each dropping sun

Can't erase what has been done who cares

What happened long ago I don't want to know

Can't face tomorrow with these thoughts

Of yesterday

I can't escape the lies and make them go away

Wish I had the answers to make it through

Can't shake these images no matter what I do

I guess I'll use them to make me a stronger man

I'll use each

Twisted tortured memory to help me understand

And I will learn

From mistakes

To find a way

I guess I'll have to live with them every single day

 
 

Searching

Can't run can't hide
No one here gets out alive

It don't get better that's the best you're gonna get

The deal is in now place your bets

Can't eat can't sleep

Knowing that nothing's gonna satisfy me

Another blip on a television screen

Among an ocean of stars

Tonight I will rage against the forces of fate

You best get outta my way

I'm not gonna fade away slowly

Inside my mind is a clock tick-tocking time

Not gonna stop until my last days done

You wanna try me well come get some

Tempt fate can't wait

I gotta get out there's no time to hesitate

Not gonna waste it with the cynical fools

Can't bring me down

And if you wanna try this disposition

Sacrifice all you knew

Sanitize your religion

Take your life and renew and do what you wanna do

 
 

Not Far Away

Hey it's my time
To change my direction in life just by reading the signs

Hey it's my turn

To see how many of my bridges will burn

I feel something breathing down my neck

Thought of tomorrow's got me like a nervous wreck

No time for sorrow it's your judgement day

It's not far away It's not far away

There's a shiny coffin for you to rot in

And waste your days

It's not far away

Hey I got something to say

Before the spirit of life starts slippin' away

I'm not gonna end my life

Wishing for one more chance again to get it right

I hear voices echo from the grave

Whispering softly it's your judgement day

Hey I won't rest in peace

Until this world is sick of hearing from mr

Hey get outta my way

I got alot more living to do before my

judgement day

 
 

Freebase

I got some shit for sale you oughtta get some
You'll be the highest guy that ever lived

It might kill you man you won't even know it

I can feel your best sense starting to give

You take the chance you lose control

The lessons from your past you need to know

Take one more hit of base

That shit is gonna blow up in your face

Ripping glass shards through your heart

You got a problem man you ought to fix it

You think you're geting hig

Until it's too late well you wont even know it

You better stop before you hit a dead end

When I see you out on the street

A different story everytime we meet

You been hanging with a different crowd

Your acting tough and your talking loud

It's getting worse for you every single day

A bad habit and it won't go away

Where you gone where's my best friend

I can't help you cause you won't let me in

 
 

It's What You Do With It

Too mich time in this same place got to get out
An undenying feeling I gotta get away

Too many thoughts in one space I've finally had it

A dream now takes to a secret place that lies

So far away

It's what you do with it it's what you've waited for

And when you find it a place where no one has been before

I know I gotta listen to my mind 'cause if it happens to me

Sometimes

Finda place where you can go where nobody knows

Nobody knows

Gone and without a trace I'd like to have it

Taking only with me good dreams of yesterday

And my best friend whom with I'll share this journey

Our mental bags are packed 'cause we're leaving here today

It's whatyou do with it

It's what you've waited for

 
 

Try

You've been looking for me in the most obvious places
Still I'm nowhere to be found

I'm perched atop the highest buildings in the city

And I'm inrigued as I look down

All the ants below share the same comfortable existence

But they still wear the same frown

What ashame that they can't see the beauty

That's surrounding them when there's so much around

Try don't choose to walk away

There's a part within your soul it just takes

Time to find it

When you try take time and seize the day

Cause after today's gone

You'll never have the chance again

So try

While I sit here with so many thoughts

I'm listenign to the rain

Falling to the ground

I'm just hoping somday soon all thge unhappy people find

Solace in the sound

And listen to the old cliches that all the elders say

That life goes by too fast

I just wish there was some way that I could stop the clock

And make the good times last

Don't throw it all away no one

You must realize it's all in your mind

Don't emphasize the pain on one particular day

If you feel you're starting to slide

Just pull yourself together

Remember all that matters is you try

 
 

Same Old Story

It's patience trying when you tell me how to live
Well you don't know anything

Your expectations are wearing thin

You won't even take a look to see another way

You aren't even listeing

Take your ideals and go away

I'm cut from the same mold

I don't read from the same old story

I'm not cut fromthe same mold

Don't know who you think I should be

I'm not cut from the same mold

I don't read from the same old story

I'm not cut from the same mold

Done with yours I'm living life for me

Tell me father, did I turn out so bad

Didn't I look up to you

Took every piece of advice you had

Go to school get a job

Send me on your way

You aren't even listening

Take your dreams and go away

For so longI have tried to understand

The qualities you thought made up a real man

Now it's time for me to find out for myself

I'm getting fed up I don't need your help

You never listen to both sides of the story

You never listen you won't listen to me

 
 

I Won't Have It

A model brother a model dad
A model citizen has somehow turned out bad

Pledging allegiance to another flag

Lifelong devotion to a man they think was far from mad

A written word from they think their peers

A little propaganda they became white warriors

Bred on deception and bred on fear

They don't hear the barrage of lies

That pass right theough their ears

When your head feels like its real close to imploding

And your life is revolving around hate

All that shit your brain is overloading

With help from papers and magazines

Another sheltered boy chooses what he will not see

Views so distorted how can this be

When the love for hate is the basis for reality

Another headline anotehr bash

Another harmless victim beaten up and not for cash

Insanity well when will it end if you don't give it up

You'll never have the chnmace to make ammends

You cannot keep it all inside

You've go

You got a bullet in your head

It's time to make a stance now make it

A bloody picture, psychotic dream

Choosing to follow the worst lesson in all history

Just get a future yeah get a life cause if you don't

Instead of mourning there'll be celebrating when you die

 
 

Killing Time

On my tv, violent actions race across my screen
A world of hate staring at the rise in murder rate

I can't believe what we've become

Is all hope lost to everyone?

A bettered wife waits for us to hear

Her screams tonight

A child of war wonders what we're all fighting for

I look and think how can this be?

What causes all our suffering?

Eyes wide open we can't see

I can't understand it's out of hand

To me we're all just killing time

Killing time

Killing time - we're running our lives

Religious right-is buying up guns for

A hell of a fight

Another victim lies in pain

A serial killer waits for fame

Have we all gone insane?

I can't understand it's out of hand

To me we're all just killing time

Killing time

I can't believ There's got to be

Some way to break through

I think that I - will have to try - I'll lose my mind

We're all killing time

Why?
