"Demons"
I've been thinking lots about my life and
How quick I'd wash it down the drain
Past tense the future, nothing matters now
I act on my own and I'm to blame
Live in a wicked dream, with angst turned out all wrong
Were all so weak, no matter how strong, yeah

(chorus)
I tried running away from me
Convince me that I've grown, but I can't
She's so unnaturally, Demons they follow me
I quit running away from me
Convinced that I have grown, but found out
All my reasons for obscenity, all a part of me

I don't like that you're calling me a liar
I don't like that you found out I'm a snake
Been sneaking around for far too long now
I don't like how fast my intentions fade
Karma has beat me down, but the worst is yet to come
Many mistakes and still I'm so young, yeah

(chorus)
I tried running away from me
Convince me that I've grown, but I can't
She's so unnaturally, Demons they follow me
I quit running away from me
Convinced that I have grown, but found out
All my reasons for obscenity, all a part of me

I can't
Count how many times
Awakened in fear, nightly

I'm sweating
Dreams
Where promises are made
To no one but myself
Help him
Crushed daily

Don't lend me your hand
I can't trust my self
So how can you trust me

We've all made selfish, bad decisions
We've all tried dishing out the blame
Convinced our selves of our own actions
My problem is I'll never change
In doubt, some good comes out
I'll fold before its time
Can't promise you that its my last time, yeah

(chorus)
I tried running away from me
Convince me that I've grown, but I can't
She's so unnaturally, Demons they follow me
I quit running away from me
Convinced that I have grown, but found out
All my reasons for obscenity, all a part of me

Truth won't help you now
All the loves gone too far

Truth won't help you now
All the loves gone too far

I'm scarred, yeah
Demons they follow me, 'cause my insanity

I'm scarred, yeah
Demons they follow me, 'cause my insanity

I'm scarred, yeah
Demons they follow me, 'cause my insanity

I'm scarred, yeah
Demons they follow me, 'cause my insanity




"Girl I Know"
Let me tell ya 'bout this girl I know
That comes alive when you take off her clothes
Theres no tell just where shes been
Ask around but no one seems to know

Late at night when your looking to sin
Call her up and she'll lay down the law
You can't trust her 'cause she'll lie to your face
But thats not why you gave her a call

Awaits deep inside
The lust and burning desire

We've all been more than eager to sin
And it feels alright, 'till we pay the price
Now you choose either naughty or nice
'Cause shes here for you
Its all yours tonight
You won't believe the stories I've been told
About the girl I know

Another thing about this girl I know
Shes more comfortable down on her knees
Went to school, got a job, and then she shot into hell
All 'cause shes born to please

Don't get her mixed up 'cause she knows what she likes
Can't tell the difference between right and wrong
She knows you're watching every one of her moves
Just more reason to string you along, yeah

Awaits deep inside
The lust and burning desire

We've all been more than eager to sin

And it feels alright, 'till we pay the price
Now you choose either naughty or nice
'Cause shes here for you
Its all yours tonight
You won't believe the stories I've been told
About the girl I know

The first times hard enough
But you made it through
The seconds time I see the changes in you
Shes got you somehow
You're needing her now

We've all been more than eager to sin
And it feels alright, 'till we pay the price
Now you choose either naughty or nice
'Cause shes here for you
Its all yours tonight
You won't believe the stories I've been told
About the girl I know




"Crossroads"
I've been traveling for so long
So lost til I stumbled upon
Two roads in front of me
I had to take my time

To the right I could see a church
I took a step in that direction first
But to the left there was a watering hole
Where they were whiskey drunk
Now that's where I wanna be
I fly to the edges of it all

If I was perfect
Than this would be easy
Even though it's plausible
I know I can drown
I walk through city
With no rules to guide me
I realize it's difficult
But now I can see

There's gotta be another way to go
A way that's much more feasible
I got my nation of all these lives
Ill set your path without choosing a side

I make decisions one at a time
And no I never say I'm always right
I'm confident that when I stand on my own
You'll see the truest form of a man
What I'm trying to prove
I fly to the edges of it all

If I was perfect
Than this would be easy
Even though it's plausible
I know I can drown
I walk through city
With no rules to guide me
I realize it's difficult
But now I can see


Oh, I hear them now
All the religious rage
(Anger I see)
(Anger I see)
(Anger I see now)

The left isn't better
It's just more of the same
Condemning all these people
For what they believe

I climb to the top
of their mountain again
know how hard it sounds
To see me this way
And the closer to the top I get
The more they can gain
But im not you

I may not be perfect
But ive always been true
I may not be worthy
In your eyes
Climbed up from the bottom
For the last time
The last one the last one
The last time

If I was perfect
Than this would be easy
Even though it's plausible
I know I can drown
I walk through city
With no rules to guide me
I realize it's difficult
But now I can see





"Flash Of The Blade"
As a young boy
Chasing dragons
With your wooden sword
So mighty
You're St. George
Or you're David
And you always
Killed the beast
Times change very quickly
And you had
To grow up early
A house in smoking ruins
And the bodies
At your feet

You'll die as you lived
In the flash of a blade
In a corner forgotten
By no-one
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel
One man and his honour

The smell
Of resined leather
The steely iron mask
As you cut and thrust
And parried at the
Fencing master's call
He taught you
All he never knew
To fear no mortal man
And now you'll wreak
Your vengeance
In the screams
Of evil men

You'll die as you lived
In the flash of a blade
In a corner forgotten
By no-one
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel
One man and his honour

You'll die as you lived
In the flash of a blade
In a corner forgotten
By no-one
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel
One man and his honour




"Until the End"
Weekends on young and angry streets
We meet, drink 'till trouble found us there
Living life as without a care
We've had our bouts, been black and blue
Its true, I've even gone to jail for you my friend
Bet your life that I'd do it again

(Until the End)

Don't change the way you think of me
We're from the same story
Life moves on, can't stay the same
But some of us, some worry

While some have gone their separate ways
Theres some still caught up with the past instead
But move on, you're missing most of your life
They say its hard to stay the same
When some fail, while other men seem to gain, my friend
I'll be with you here until the end

(Until the End)

Don't change the way you think of me
We're from the same story
Life moves on, can't stay the same
But some of us, some worry
We're all falling forward
With no signs of slow
And some moving faster
Thats all that I wanted
I wanted

You know its hard
Its passing by
Memories
Be out all night
To reminisce wont bring you back
Just look ahead and hold on tight
We're all falling forward
With no signs of slow
And some moving faster
Thats all that I wanted
I wanted

Don't change the way you think of me
Oh yeah

Oh yeah
Until the end
Until the end
Until the end



"Tension"
I wake up bright and early every morning
Roll out of bed but I'm never quite alone
Tension is pulling me in all directions
And I'll be done once you use me as a rope
Sometimes the pressure will just drive you crazy
At any time I could explode
I need some piece of mind, its got me tired
Don't wanna lose it, but I'm turning down that road

I need a moment 'cause I've dragged myself to thin
We all need a moment in our lives
Works hard, the days too long
And thats just where it begins
Tension has had us all this time

I sit in traffic every single morning
Just as I arrive, I'm slaving to the grind
Making the money so I feed my family
But I can't raise them, 'cause I ain't got the time
I got no free days on my busy schedule
I turn the page and its the same
Don't like my situation, you don't either
Don't wanna look back scared, I will get away

I need a moment 'cause I've dragged myself to thin
We all need a moment in our lives
Works hard, the days too long
And thats just where it begins
Tension has had us all this time

But every now and then

I drive alone
And over all
Hot summer days
A gentle breeze that feels alright
Home alone
And I can't feel the pain
Only strain
Enjoy the sights
I feel alive
When actually here just feels alright
Far from home

I need a moment 'cause I've dragged myself to thin
We all need a moment in our lives
Works hard, the days too long
And thats just where it begins
Tension has had us all this time


"Walk (Pantera Cover)"
Can't you see I'm easily bothered by persistence
One step from lashing out at you...
You want in to get under my skin
And call yourself a friend
I've got more friends like you
What do I do?

[Pre]
Is there no standard anymore?
What it takes, who I am, where I've been
Belong
You can't be something you're not
Be yourself, by yourself
Stay away from me
A lesson learned in life
Known from the dawn of time

[Chorus]
Respect, walk

Run your mouth when I'm not around
It's easy to achieve
You cry to weak friends that sympathize
Can you hear the violins playing your song?
Those same friends tell me your every word

[Pre]

[Chorus]

Are you talking to me?
No way punk



"The Fight"
The problem with society's been how do we teach
And if they'll believe.
We'll fight this battle for years to come
Until we only accept that we can stand on our own.

Rip off the youth, hands empty, worked them too the bone
Provide his family with a happy home, alone.

Don't take your oppression out on me.
My old man is all I'm meant to be.
This common place is so lazy or tired
All your ideas are so plainly uninspired.
Takes more than one idea
More than one percent to fight the fight
How many times have you taught and not conspired?

Don't wanna be, they never say
But don't call us the liars

(guitar solo)

We've walked these alleys a thousand times
And scattered around a thousand lies.
They are trying to hold you till your night may
be hard but keep your feet on the ground.
Why don't I have the finest things that others have?
The chance is there if you want it all that bad.
So bad.

Don't take your oppression out on me.
My old man is all I'm meant to be.
This common place is so lazy or tired
All your ideas are so plainly uninspired.

Takes more than one idea
More than one percent to fight the fight
How many times have you taught and not conspired?

Don't try and get me confused.
Cause I do understand.
And sometimes people need help.
That they may need a-
And when this problems going on.
A thing you have to get straight
Is that you don't own my hand.
And I don't owe you a thing.
So don't think about how sorry
You feel when now your treated so bad.

This common place is so lazy or tired
All your ideas are so plainly uninspired.
Takes more than one idea
More than one percent to fight the fight
How many times have you taught and not conspired

And as a race we look back and we've come so far.
While some thing that others have had it so hard
But in this day we just complain while there's no room for us to fight.
I guess we're born in this its how we keep our side to hide.

((There's several parts where it's hard to understand Matt. Like REALLY hard. This is the best I can do.))





"Dancing Dead"
Dead men,
They celebrate
As the final chapter
Fades away
Cuz they can't hide;
We can see their flesh is rotten!

The band plays a hopeful tune
The champagne is poured
As they socialize
The look in their eyes
Hide in the light!

Everything is paid for tonight
While at the party of the
Dead dancin in their graves
The drinks here are free
So relax
Enjoy the sight of all the
Dead dancin in their graves
And while the world that they built
Told 'em to change
Told 'em to listen
They just kept it the same
And now that midnight has come
I'll get a room watchin the
Dead dancin in their graves

Bones covered up by suit
As the visible scars,
They multiply
Kiss it good-bye
Too stubborn and I'll destroy!

Tick, tock
The time bomb has been
Recognized and pressurized
Nowhere to hide
Swallowing light!

Everything is paid for tonight
While at the party of the
Dead dancin in their graves
The drinks here are free
So relax
Enjoy the sight of all the
Dead dancin in their graves

And while the world that they built
Told 'em to change
Told 'em to listen
They just kept it the same
And now that midnight has come
I'll get a room watchin the
Dead dancin in their graves

Feel a coming strength
And now it's too late
To chay-ee-ay-ee-ay-ee-ay-eeayeeayeeayeeayeeayeeayeeayee

{background chatter}


Everything is paid for tonight

Told 'em to listen
They just kept it the same
And now that midnight has come
I'll get a room watchin the
