By god, what have you done? Used to be so fun Now you come in here Naming everything you want Welcome is worn out? Get up and get out? What war in this house? All is quiet on my front A real friend Would understand No you didn’t, no you didn't No you didn’t, no you didn't Can’t wrap my head ‘Round anything you said Just leave it there Leave it there Dare turn this thing around With nothing to defend Just leave it there Leave it there Just leave it Promised I wouldn’t take Anything unclean I haven’t opened My poor mouth in the whole week And now I'm starving Yes, I am hungry Said you would feed me Yet you let me get so weak It isn’t fair It isn’t fair No you didn’t, no you didn't You won’t admit it, no you didn’t Can’t wrap my head ‘Round anything you said Just leave it there Leave it there Can't turn this thing around With nothing to pretend Just leave it there Leave it there Just leave it Can’t wrap my head ‘Round anything you said Just leave it there Leave it there Can't turn this thing around With nothing to pretend Just leave it there Leave it there Just leave it Just leave it Let's leave it there Let's leave it there Can’t win my love until you win my trust Don’t get my love just because you got my blood

Could've been brilliant Could've been rich A bit more resilient To a bit more stick If I'd had more luck If I'd filled my scrip I might not be planning To trigger my itch I tell you, the hell with this shit I'm done with it Done with it Done with the pain and the tears It's useless, demanding I'm notwithstanding here I'm done with it Just done with it Done with the faith and the fear Abuse and abandon I'm notwithstanding, here I'm done Well, look who's crawled from The suburban sprawl If he couldn't have her She'll have no one at all Broke the news this morning At the shopping mall Another lowlife leaning on a machine-gun crutch Has called it quits And I'm done with this shit Done with it Done with it Done with the pain and the tears It's useless, demanding I'm notwithstanding here I'm done with it Just done with it Done with the faith and the fear Abuse and abandon I'm notwithstanding, here I'm done Done with it Done with it Done with the pain and the tears It's useless, demanding I'm notwithstanding here I'm done with it Just done with it Done with the faith and the fear It's abuse and abandon I'm notwithstanding, here I'm done

Long Blink 05:10
Oh, it was cold in the night and the light is what they bring Imitation: the eternal spring Oh, you can dine out on your luck and weak champagne Only serves to ease your shame You rode acclaim into the summer Your autumn bore the wrath of kings And now your sun has begun fading Fading Ohh, what you think is just wrong What you drink isn't strong Held your blink far too long Ohh, what you think is just wrong What you drink isn't strong Held your blink for too long Long blink It's a long blink Oh, you pushed into the light but the sight disarmed your sting Pretense: the art of suffering Oh, you're a homage for hire not a liar seeking fame Simulation just the same You rode acclaim into the summer Your autumn bore the wrath of kings And now your sun has begun fading You're faking

Going Native 05:43
She pulled an arrow Straight from his heart Shot it into the night Split into a star Back dropped to the earth Invitation smile A tempt to fate And to defile Sprung up a hero in paradise Not quite a man deep in her eyes I'm going native I'm hearing wolves I'm drowning in rain I'm buried in wood I'm going native I'm hearing wolves I'm drowning in rain I'm buried in wood Broke skin and bit down And shook with ire A rending gash A soul caught fire The poison took Both sweet and vile So lost in sin And so worthwhile Woke up a demon to no surprise No more a man but in disguise I'm going native I'm hearing wolves I'm drowning in rain I'm buried in wood I'm going native I'm hearing wolves I'm drowning in rain I'm buried in wood (and I'm feeling good) I'm hearing wolves

Hold It 04:12
I'm glad I caught you on the lawn Thought that you had gone I didn't want to miss you You, would you like some gum I could give you some Then I wanna kiss you I know you're scared And I can't hold it against you But can I hold it against you Can I hold it against you I'm glad you think this school is lame Sorry that you came Maybe I could assist you You could join our little band I could take your hand Then I wanna kiss you I know you're scared And I can't hold it against you But can I hold it against you Can I hold it against you Hold it against you But can I hold it against you Can I hold it against you I'm glad you made it to the show Hoped that you would know Your name was on the list, too She is really just a friend At least she was right then When she saw me kiss you I know you're scared And I can't hold it against you But can I hold it against you Can I hold it against you I know you're scared And I can't hold it against you But can I hold it against you Can I hold it against you Hold it against you Hold it against you Hold it against you

You get what you get if you're not strong This was gonna be a love song But it came out different Now it's about how you done me wrong You get what you get if you're not strong This was gonna be a love song But it came out different Time for a good old fashioned Words hurting, truth blurting, tears squirting, tear shirting I gotta put the work in, yo Check it out in my mind is a crime spree Had my brain locked down but it broke free Spitting liquid hate like a true G Unleash the flow in your face if you fuck me Yeah, I'm a killer though I might not look it Bet your life but I already took it Hear the sound on the ground where ya walking Don't see me coming but I heard you been talking, yo Woke up in a good mood Fangs sharp and looking for food You get what you get so let's rock this building Before the chalkline in your future gets filled in This shit comes original All about getting personal Don't want no more to be hurting, no So... You get what you get if you're not strong This was gonna be a love song But it came out different Now it's about how you done me wrong You get what you get if you're not strong This was gonna be a love song But it came out different Time to get it off my chest I'm Straight illing, not chilling like Dylan, I'm a villain The handsome grandson of Manson, yo Listen up, I'm-a give it to you one time That's my story and I'm sticking to my rhyme So listen, or I'll blacken your other eye Hard enough to make your unborn bastard cry Yeah, I'm a killer but I try to make nice Taking lives left and right is my only vice Jabbing eyes making raccoon goggles So bad to the bone why you mess the mind boggles Rolled up in a good mood Right away, this shit got kinda rude You get what you get so let's rock this building Before my mood swing caves your grill in This shit comes professional Have a seat in my confessional Don't want no one to be stressing, no So... You get what you get if you're not strong This was gonna be a love song But it came out different Now it's about how you done me wrong You get what you get if you're not strong This was gonna be a love song But it came out different Time for one more Down throwing, mad flowing, off going, mind blowing About to break it down, young'n Check it, see the truth like a prism I'm an alpha organism, my wisdom's god gism So head's up, making love like cupid So many shorties on my jock it's stupid Yeah, I'm a killer but I dress to impress Where I hide my pistol is anybody's guess But yo, it's pointing in your direction Getting down, behold the resurrection Rolling out in a good mood Heading home and then I'm getting nude Cause I get what I get when I rock this building I'm loving life and my jimmy is still in This shit comes rhetorical Literal and metaphorical Straight up categorical, sing it yo So... You get what you get if you're not strong This was gonna be a love song But it came out different Now it's about how you done me wrong You get what you get if you're not strong This was gonna be a love song But it came out different Now it's about how you done me Now it's about how you done me Now it's about how you done me wrong

Sweet Freek 04:05
Makeup with malice Lipstick teeth Rip in her stocking So her skin can breathe Stain on the carpet Faucet leak Rat in the cupboard Widow’s peak The sticky is sour The rub is sweet Devil in the details When she doth speak Know me, now you do Somewhere deep My fruit is the truth Now feed on it, freek Two days out of the week I am invincible Five days I’m feeling weak Almost invisible I don’t adult well I can’t sleep You say I’m no good for you I see your point of view, but I don't Care if you do me wrong Just come and do me It’s been way too long Since you’ve been through me Yeah Wake up with Alice Watch her sleep Stomach is rising As she breathes Her neck throbs a heartbeat Dries in the breeze A tangle of dark hair And bruises and knees Two days out of the week I am invincible Five days I’m feeling weak Almost a vegetable I don’t adult well I can’t sleep You say, "I’m no good for you" I see your point of view, but I don’t Care if you do me wrong Just come and do me It’s been a weight too long So come right through me Yeah You came to do me wrong Come on and do me It's been a weight too long So show it to me Yeah Woo! C’mon! Another token! Thank you! Two days out of the week I am invincible Five days I’m feeling weak Almost a vegetable I don’t adult well I can’t sleep You say I’m no good for you I see your point of view, but I don’t Care if you do me wrong So come and do me It's been way too long Since you’ve been through me Yeah You came to do me wrong Now fucking do me It's been way too long Since you’ve been through me Yeah

You said you make lots of money You said amazing five times You can't pretend that you don't see And maintain you're benign Sometimes a shiny new trophy Is just a head on the wall It really is your problem If it's affecting us all It really is your problem Quit deflecting We need a leader A leader of men The truth is untold Don't point at me Too much yet to see Grow up when I'm old In a little bit Have your little fit Let the riddle unfold Don't run away There's a way to be calm And a way to be cold They're making friends with connections Sharing distractions in stalls Selling reprieve to the young and naive As they piss down the walls It's time you stepped in and stopped them Use any method you can Just use your powers to trick and deceive Just think like a man Go on and bleed the way Quit protecting We need a leader A leader of men The truth goes untold Don't point at me Too much yet to see Grow up when I'm old Not all ideas Should turn a profit It's time you entered the fold Don't run away There's a way to be calm And a way to be cold You said you make lots of money You said amazing five times You can't pretend that you don't see And maintain you're benign Sometimes a shiny new trophy Is just a head on the wall It really is your problem If it's affecting us all It really is your problem Quit deflecting We need a leader A leader of men The truth is untold Don't point at me Too much yet to see Grow up when I'm old In a little bit Have your little fit Let the riddle unfold Don't run away There's a way to be calm And a way to be cold Don't run away There's a way to be calm And a way to be cold Don't run away There's a way to be calm And a way to be cold

The Ringing 03:09
Shot The singing stopped The stinging thoughts Still clinging Can't stop the ringing Do we light a candle? Do we feed the flame? Do we like the scandal? Do we fleece the shame? Do we write a love song? Give it the wrong name? Retail the feeling Can't stop the ringing Shot The singing stopped The clinging thoughts Still stinging Can't stop the ringing Do we light a candle? Do we feed the flame? Do we buy the scandal? Do we steal the shame? Can we write a love song? Give it a long mane Sift through the meaning Won't stop the ringing Shot The singing stopped The clinging thoughts Still stinging Can't stop the ringing Shot The singing stopped The clinging thoughts Still stinging Can't stop the ringing
