You. You want control I can’t say no That’s how we go I want to hold onto What I don’t know Where do we go Nobody knows And if - we don’t survive And this all dies Should we be surprised Just know I tried So here we are None of the pieces seem to fit We made it this far But tell me is this it You and me will die So what is this about They say enjoy the ride But how can I get out I’ve seen what’s over there Sorry but I don’t care My painful memories All drowned in melodies Anticlimactic to see All that’s been happening to me cuz I’m stuck I’m stuck I’m stranded So let us rewind To the hell of yesterday How can we forget the time When everything got in the way I devoted my life Got it stuck in my head Thought I’d give it a try I don’t wanna be dead But I can’t help these extremes Ya can’t kill all my screams I’m not a hypocrite And I ain’t full of it So sick of all of it That’s it I quit I'm stuck I'm stuck I'm stranded NO! Further we GO! Out of CONTROL! Into the hole… NOW! This all stops NOW! I don’t know HOW! To turn it around… But get off the ground And though upon last call I gave it all and hit the wall… I will not fall All of this will pass But soon so will we No more no more None of this will be I'm stuck I'm stuck I'm stuck So stuck yeehaw I'm stuck I'm stuck I'm

I’m still standing here for 1 last shot Must be some kind of miracle My body’s breathing after all I got Went into something so lyrical I got nothing left but no regrets That’s kind of a miracle Will any of this matter in the end Let’s hope for a miracle It’s out of our hands up in the sky WE WILL RISE AGAIN No matter what happens if we live or die WE WILL RISE AGAIN WE WILL RISE AGAIN WE WILL RISE AGAIN WE WILL RISE AGAIN Falling short of the goal I can’t let go How do you come down from nothing Everything’s long gone out of control And all I wanted was something There’s a change coming like it or not It’s nothing to cry about Time won’t compromise ready or not Gives you something to die about WE WILL RISE AGAIN WE WILL RISE AGAIN Out of control and there’s no one to hold Don’t think just let go in a blink we’ll be old No right or wrong nothing matters at all I’m still standing in the shape I’m in It’s kind of a miracle Everything’s a struggle but a 2nd wind… Is all we need for a miracle WE WILL RISE AGAIN

I don’t really care anymore I know I am living but what for I’m not really here anymore Nothing really much matters to me anymore I don’t really care anymore It’s all in our minds The games that we play Take a look outside, it’s a day It’s all the unknown It’s all up to us Release us from the worry and the fuss No turning back… No wasting time today Leave it behind your way All that matters Is all there is I don't really care anymore I know I am living but what for I'm not really here anymore Nothing really much matters to me anymore Extraneous It’s a learned behavior Unhook the wires don’t get any crazier Get to the point If there’s one at all The tick of time is set no matter how hard you call No turning back No wasting time today Leave it behind your way All that matters Is all there is There is no room For philosophy In a world that’s pressed for time to be Simplify the means Don’t be complicated Get a couple of breaths or further frustrated It’s fun to try to figure out But we never will It seems to me these days it’s just a slower kill No turning back... No wasting time today Leave it behind your way All that matters Is all there is Go on make up your mind Go on leave me behind Let’s see if I’ll be alright I’m just trying to be And I don’t know how to be Feels like there may not be Enough time for me I just wanna relax Feel the feeling of free Yeah but down came the ax Made little pieces of me You know my heart beats so fast Nerves won’t leave me alone Haunted by my past I will not pick up the phone I wanna run for cover I’m not like the others You know I need my sleep I need my sleeeeeeeeeeep

I try to make my way Thru 1 more day I am running late And you are in my way All you care about is pay You got the balls to say You think you got it made You are soulless and afraid My personal self won’t separate My personal self won’t compromise Won’t get put on no shelf can’t handle it My personal self sees thru the lies So it gets banged around Thrown on the floor Knocked on the ground Kicked out the door Today might suck Today might sting Today might nail the coffin shut, kill everything Take a look up at the sky And wonder why It’s a goddamn fact that everything must die My personal self can't handle it My personal self not full of shit But it gets banged around Thrown on the floor Knocked on the ground Kicked out the door One little thing And I’m no good Can’t handle it I’m behind where I started But 1 little thing I’m back again I’m gonna do it this time It’s the reason why You say I overreact And that I need to calm down Well if you have the knack for that why don’t you tell me how I got some wiring inside Ain’t what it’s supposed to be Can you help me to find Outfit me with ability to be happy So if I lose my mind And it all goes to hell And I get left behind for the devil I’ll have a really good story to tell One little thing And I’m no good Can’t handle it I’m behind where I started But 1 little thing I’m back again I’m gonna do it this time It’s the reason why

Tell me where to place my hate Tell me where to find my mate Tell me that I got it made Tell me that it’s not too late I don’t like to fall behind I don’t like to stand in line But I like to have what’s mine Give me just a little time On a good day I break even On a good day I feel numb But the pain’s still there and I put it where It always stopped the sun On a good day I’m not happy And you call that a curse I thought you were the optimist Cuz it could be so much worse but I feel Nothin. Nothin. On my Good Day Nothin. Nothin. It won’t go away Tell me how to make it right Tell me how to sleep tonight Give me just a little light Give me everything in sight Tell me it’s a trick o the mind tell me that I’m doin fine Everything comes and goes Tell me that it’s not a fine line, nothin comes along the way To turn it all into a catastrophic day On a good day I break even On a good day I feel numb But I raise a glass despite my past and Where it all comes from… still I feel Nothin. Nothin. On my Good Day Nothin. Nothin. It won’t go away Floating (I am hovering), Reeling (I am orbiting) Circling my soul (Locked out of my soul) Denied all my feelings (not allowed to land/with no helping hand) Can’t let GO Tell me where to go from here Tell me that the path is clear Tell me there’s no need to fear I don’t wanna waste another year Nothin. Nothin. On my Good Day Nothin. Nothin. Nothing's here to stay Nothin. Nothin. On my Good Day Nothin. Nothin. Never go away

It all falls apart It all strips away When you take out the heart Nothing matters anyway There’s no hope anymore There is no reason to believe When you only trust yourself For your life you begin to grieve Look what it’s done It’s done nothing at all Near suicide Have yet to fall Somehow I’m still here Dangling by a string But take away my music I don’t care about anything Somehow I’m still here Dangling by a string But take away my music... Now I see things For what they really are The apathy it brings How do you answer… how you are I got nothing left I turn in towards myself No one’s really real No one really cares You’re searching for something That simply can’t exist And it gets you down Surely there’s got to be more to life than this Should I go Tell me is it worth it So what now Should I stay

Now it’s all done and over I won’t take the time to dwell I don’t even feel a damn thing Maybe it’s just as well I feel the same as always Running restless and confused Searching for my self-fulfillment I don’t know what to do So many stories to tell I think I’ll leave them all alone So many places I dwelled And now I need some time home alone Sitting here… I try and make some music That could impact for a while We are drowning in the quick fix Suits get rich the kids all smile We already got the surplus Everyone’s singin’ bout havin’ fun Sometimes I wonder if I knew how Could it be I would be one of those… So many stories to tell I think I’ll leave them all alone So many places I dwelled And now I hunger for my home So many stories to tell I think I’ll leave it all alone Too many places to dwell I just need some time alone Sitting here… So many stories to tell I think I’ll leave them all alone So many places I dwelled And I still hunger for my home Too many stories to tell I think I’ll leave it all alone You know it's all just as well I just need to be left alone Now it’s all done and over I can finally now begin I feel a growing hunger I feel it deep within Don’t know how you’re supposed to find me Sitting here a little lost Took all that I had to get here Only time can shake it off

I couldn’t get off the ground When I had the window And then I fell down And I found a new low Part of me is gone Gone forever And now I burned out How could there ever be a light My heart… still beating My heart… still bleeding You – did this to me And now I can see I was protecting myself Numb – is what I’ve become I know the truth Got no idea what to do You’re the reason that the world got out of hand [But] you’re the reason someone’s taking a stand I don’t see a way out Another day older Too speechless to shout And it’s never over Got nothing to say It’s destined this way I don’t know how much I don’t know how much more I can take My heart... still beating My heart... it's still bleeding You – are so ignorant Where would I begin Letting you in When you never listen anyway I – would like you to see What it’s like to be Someone that must give up on someone I have every single reason to run Still I stay because I am the only one So now it’s all gone It blew out the window I’m thru holding on Where did the fight go I got nothing left Whatever was there I can’t get it back And it’s not my cross to bear My heart... still beating My heart... You – can do it to me Can make me feel bad Yet you don’t entrust me with feelings It’s all about you You haven’t a clue The damage that all your bullshit brings You - can trigger the past Can make it all last Can make me a prisoner in my mind He – wants to come in But you can’t let him Cause he’ll make you forget who you are Change - brings about pain I ride the flame Still I wish it would never be the same Every time I try to bury the past It just flares up so fast There are some things that last But I don’t want them to Don’t you hate it how life is so unfair Wake up there’s people trying to care

Send me another song on down the line Send me another song make it good this time Make this one about makin it through Send me another song but don’t send you... I don’t need you Send me another song then leave me be I like being by myself periodically Please don’t take it personally But even if you do… that’s how I gotta be, I gotta save me If you let it become a song you will be fine I hate most of my friends most of the time Oftentimes it’s best done by yourself But ISOLATION hurts like bloody hell I want someone legit Not full of shit Competition drives the human race It hurts me when you sell a straight deceptive face You could have been something but you’re a waste I’m no hypocrite but I am stuck here in this place I WANNA RUN AWAY I AM NOT AN ASSHOLE GOD KNOWS WHERE I’M GOING If I disappear from the world I’ll buy some time To come back fresh and once again bask in the grime I’ll polish off what’s sacred, forget the rest Trick the mind with most things, just forget Here I go I’m gonna put up walls I’ll compete no more, I’m bowing out The GAME was never made with me in mind Now I get my role, you win; I’ll stay behind We are animals just like the lion Born to live with others but created from a complicated design…
