Your palm's all splintered up From all these wooden nickles See how the mighty fall Lady fortune is fickle I'm your supply and demand This is all part of the plan Damage and had soon you'll be All eating right from my hand They'll eat it right from my hands So we've all got small dog syndrome I'm not one to talk its my biggest flaw How to compensate is the decision I know you're about to crack, I see through what's hidden How about you leave your baggage in the past That banana in your pocket shoots a little fast for me I normally I'm the one who's livin' dangerously Take it our of my mouth Aim for the ground Why don't you aim for the ground You've got your dick and your gun Big man, big man shoot the sun Shoe shine, heavy wrists, subordinates Never, never, never, never, never, never miss Paper kingdom, wage war You've got a damn good lawyer Paper kingdom, wage war Your best friend is your lawyer Why don't you aim for the ground? It's where your spine was not found Why don't you aim for the ground? The ground Following your heart shouldn't be this hard And it's making me doubt my sanity Picking my apart's gunna leave some scars And it kinda feels like everybody's mad at me Confused a bit, you're a run away I'm a fugitive, the moon is full I'm not really sure who's the lunatic You looked me the eyes and you lied to me I know you did Hell and high water underneath a burned broken bridge Following your heart shouldn't be this hard And it's making me doubt my sanity Picking my apart's gunna leave some scars And it kinda feels like everybody's everybody's mad at me Everybody's mad at me Everybody's mad at me Why don't you aim for the ground Why don't you aim for the ground Aim for the ground Why don't you aim for the ground Aim for the ground

I've got more problems than I thought I've yet begun to fill these voids with all the stupid things I've bought Eating this food it never leaves me satisfied This pack of cigarettes is empty like the hole I feel inside Oh I need something stronger Give me something better Whether it is right or wrong I don't remember Seems like this bowl is always cashed This grass ain't cutting it so maybe it's just time to cut the grass I'm losing money I suppose By rolling up all of my twenties but I guess that's how it goes Oh I need something stronger Give me something better Whether it is right or wrong I don't remember Something beats nothing at all Paper beats rock and then the clock reads last call My heart it beaten to a pulp Me behind the pulpit scream that I'm the culprit I need something stronger Give me something better Whether it is right or wrong I need something stronger Give me something better Whether it is right or wrong Whether it is right or wrong This is, this is your brain This is your brain on drugs This is, this is your brain This is your brain on drugs This is, this is your brain (ba da dum ba da dum ba da dum bah) This is your brain on drugs (ba da dum ba da dum ba da dum bah) This is, this is your brain (ba da dum ba da dum ba da dum bah) This is your brain on drugs (ba da dum ba da bow bow bow) I need something stronger Give me something better Whether it is right or wrong I need something stronger Give me something better Whether it is right or wrong Whether it is right or wrong

Chasing Legs 03:27
My arms are tiring of this straight jacket I've got some coffee and some creamer all I need Are some sugar packets Either way you stack it Apparently the correct answer's either A or B My mind functions differently since glimpsing options C and D Steadfast in my monogamy Ooooooh ooooooh Ooooooh ooooooh Peaking out the fleece the wolf is waiting underneath Still and silent as you speak, sits the beast, Watching you believe the sheep Watching you believe the sheep Watching you believe the sheep Watching you believe the sheep Watching you believe the The things I'll do, the conversations I'll sit through just to get Closer to you, just to get closer to you And when you ask to be excused it's like A thousand screaming people in the In the room, in the, in the room Now there's two things we can do when there's no longer any room For you to be confused, for you to be confused Cause the legs I chase are leading me astray You're so close but yet so far away Oooooooh oooooooh Oooooooh oooooooh The legs I chase are leading me astray You're so close but yet so far away

Underwater 06:04
My skin is stretched so thin above my veins Cardiovascular refrain And so tremor the nerves with every impulse that occurs Resolved that it is all within my brain Is this a mirror or a window? The image there is merely innuendo Panes, panes, panes against the inside of the frame And the ring of broken glass strikes a crescendo Crucify my eternity You are the loudest god will ever speak to me My bolts are lose but I broke all my wrenches The civil war inside leaves me defenseless With my head against my heart, who tore itself apart And the other one lies dead down in the trenches Oh oh oh the horrors, lead my horses to the slaughter And I'm still holding my daughter as I hold her underwater Underwater our shipwreck is perfectly preserved At the bottom of the ocean where it won't be disturbed And you might be getting smarter but the light is getting darker And you might be fighting harder but light is getting darker Can you save my baby? Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Can you please, can you help me? Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Can you pray for me, I'm always underwater (Underwater I'm always under) Pardoned and free to walk the gardens Headstones sticking out the carpets Inmates trapped in their apartments Children burdened with the hardships That their parents couldn't part with (underwater I'm always under) That their parents couldn't part with Ending where you should've start with Ending where you should have Ending where you should've start with Ending where you should have (Underwater I'm always under) That your parents couldn't part with That your parents couldn't (Underwater I'm always under) Am I right? Am I wrong to be singing the same old song? One more time Oh oh oh the horrors, lead my horses to the slaughter And I'm still holding my daughter as I hold her underwater Underwater our shipwreck is perfectly preserved At the bottom of the ocean where it won't be disturbed And you might be getting smarter but the light is getting darker And you might be fighting harder but the light, the light You might be getting smarter but the light is getting darker And you might be fighting harder but the light, the light The light is getting darker

Ragdoll 03:58
They say I'm just a ragdoll Just sitting on the shelf Come play with me and nobody else But I still wanna play I still wanna play Elissa: It's been foretold as the body gets cold As the body gets cold as the body gets There's less to hope as the body gets cold Nikki: I still wanna play I still wanna play Both: She's your ticket out Are you passing up a chance like this? Oh she will let you in Nikki: and make you a prince but the fairy tale is over Elissa: But you were just a ragdoll You were just a ragdoll Elissa: It's been foretold as the body gets cold As the body gets cold as the body gets There's less to hope as the body gets cold It's been foretold as the body gets cold As the body gets cold as the body gets There's less to hope as the body gets cold Nikki: But I still wanna play I still wanna play But I still wanna play I still wanna play Both: She's your ticket out Are you passing up a chance like this? Oh she will let you in Nikki: and make you a prince but the fairy tale is over Elissa: But you were just a ragdoll You were just a ragdoll Both: This will never be enough for me Enough for me to hold on, and, Just like I feared when the silences got weird After this many years that I've cheered on so long And this will never be enough for me Enough for me to hold on, and, Just like I feared cause I feel so weird After this many years that I've cheered Why did you pull out your heart? Why did you leave me to die? This will never be enough for me Enough for me to hold on, and, Just like I feared when the silences got weird After this many years that I've cheered on so long And this will never be enough for me Enough for me to hold on, and, Just like I feared cause I feel so weird After this many years that I've cheered on so long Why did you pull out your heart? Why did you leave me to die?

I'm layin' it out on the table I doubt if you're able to sew me back up the same way So I'm taking my vowels and I'm throwing them out to the wind Cause It is what it is Blood splattered knives hit the ground like they did We fall to knees and our eyes seem to kiss As we try to read lips, what did we do to deserve this? I threw in the towel, as you're walking away Reality slips between the sheets while memories fade We're in a cloud up on the stage But I'm no longer bitter about being a quitter And you'd make me sicker if you stayed The cylinder spins Pinned to the wall arms out stretched it's a sin Can't seem to pull my chest down from my chin This is a ride that I didn't intend to get Inching across measuring all in this world that is lost Never could have estimated the cost of bearing our souls In this hollow and vast holocaust I threw in the towel, as you're walking away Reality slips between the sheets while memories fade Cut your losses and move on Don't hesitate and the moment's gone Carefully count your change and Bored the trains before my tears turn into rain Exchanging glances as we refrain Cut your losses and move on Don't hesitate and the moment's gone Carefully count your change and Board the trains before my tears turn into rain Exchanging glances as we Cuz I'm no longer bitter about being a quitter And you'd make me, you'd make me, you'd make me Sicker if you...

Zombies 04:23
The brutes are at the door The brutes are at the door I tried to dissuade them but they keep on pushing forward I got nothing more to offer No more words to plead Do your worst, you won't get none from me Sunday afternoon and I was lying on the couch That is when my entire day went south My roommate staggers in and he is foaming at the mouth I said "Hey dude is there something I can do to help you out?" Let me put it down, your logic isn't sound That barbaric manner following you like a hound Reverse psychology and reason didn't work Want a piece of me? Well here's your fork oh no, oh no, oh no no no I've got brains, brain,s brains on my bed spread The mailman came out me, had to blow off his head And there's stains, stains, and they're all dark red The incessant pounding at the door It fills me with dread Cuz you wanna leave But they won't let you go April 21st static takes the radio A sea of limbs and teeth roll endlessly beyond the window The internet is down, the faucets reduced to a drip This Smith and Wesson feels cold Sitting pretty on my lip It's been weeks and days since the gunshots went away The faces at the window seem more drawn up and decayed My stomach's growling louder than the corpses are outside Cock my .44 at least I tried I got brains, brains, brains on my bed spread If they ever find me I'll be dead, dead, and dead Maybe this is penance for the things I did before But there is pounding at the door Incessant pounding at the door And there is pounding at the door incessant pounding at the door
