Let’s do this

Faking falls
Stop and stall
Take it all
Fact is I’m taking mine
I’m taking mine

Time is up
Out of luck
Should've stood up when you had the time
But you’re out of time

Let’s do this (fight, fight, fight…)
Lock and load
Rock and roll
Bitch it's all over
You’re going down
You’re going down

Get ready to settle the score
And get ready to face the floor
'Cause it's time to remember it (war)

This is war
And it’s on tonight
So get up and fight
Get up and fight
You had all your life
To run and hide
Now step up, now step up
Let’s do this

Sat around
Going down
How about a little reaction, man?
You can barely stand
Bitch slap, slow attack
Man, that was practically suicide
Next in line

(Go)
Fight [X8]

Get ready to settle the score
And get ready to face the floor
'Cause its time to remember it (war)

This is war
And it’s on tonight
So get up and fight
Get up and fight
You had all your life
To run and hide
Now step up, now step up
Let’s do this

'Cause we’re all about ready to break
And we’re all about ready to break
Yeah we’re all about ready to break
Yeah we’re all about ready to break

This is war
And it never ends
So get up, get up, get up, get up!

You had all your life
To run and hide
Step up, so step up

This is war (and it never ends)
This is war (and it never ends)
This is war
Let’s do this
Let’s do this
Let’s do this
Fight [X7]
Let’s do this

Every time I end up breaking you
You change into
Something worth keeping
Every time I'm close to saving you
You grow into
A sin worth believing
You're everything I ever wanted but
It's never enough
You're never enough

I'll take whatever I can take
Whenever I can take it
If it ever comes

I hate you when you're gone
I hate you turn me on
I hate the way I need you when
I don't know where you are
I love it even more
When I find you on the floor
I know you think you hate me
But I will always hate you more

I never knew until I got a taste
What a waste
For what I had been through
'Cause nothing ever really makes that change
I'm so ashamed
Of what I did to you
I had to let you in to feel that rush
You were too much
Way too much

I'll take whatever I can take
Whenever I can take it
If it ever comes

I hate you when you're gone
I hate you turn me on
I hate the way I need you when
I don't know where you are
I love it even more
When I find you on the floor
I know you think you hate me
But I will always hate you more

Round and round and...

I never knew until I got a taste
I'm so ashamed
Of what I did to you

I hate you when you're gone
I hate you turn me on
I hate the way I need you when
I don't know where you are
I love it even more
When I find you on the floor
I know you think you hate me
But I will always hate you more

I hate you when you're gone
I hate you turn me on
I hate the way I need you when
I don't know where you are
I love it even more
When I find you on the floor
I know you think you hate me
But I will always hate you more


. . .



You all hate your children
They're too fat to feed
You're on medication
Taking pills to sleep
I think I'm doing just fine
Compared to what you've been doing
I won't get vaccinated
Insurance costs too much
You think you're so persuasive
But I'm not giving up
Saving my life
It's not what you're doing

I, I won't justify
The way I live my life
'Cause I'm the one livin' it
Feelin' it, tastin' it
And you're just wasting your time
Trying to throw me a line
When you're the one drowning
I like where I'm at on my back
Floating down in my own riptide
The water is fine

I like to step on cracks
I go against the odds
You think my world is flat
Do I turn you on?
Maybe, yeah I'm wrong
But I like where I'm going
I leave when others stay
I never re-decide
I don't mind if you wait
But I don't waste my time
Crazy is just fine
'Cause I like where I'm going

I, I won't justify
The way I live my life
'Cause I'm the one livin' it
Feelin' it, tastin' it
And you're just wasting your time
Trying to throw me a line
When you're the one drowning
I like where I'm at on my back
Floating down in my own riptide
The water is fine

I remember when it used to be easy
I remember when it wasn't so hard
I remember when it used to be easy
I remember when, I remember when

I, I didn't have to justify
The way I live my life
'Cause I'm the one livin' it
Feelin' it, tastin' it
And you're just wasting your time
Trying to throw me a line
When you're the one drowning
I like where I'm at on my back
Floating down in my own riptide
The water is fine

I remember when it used to be easy
I remember when it wasn't so hard
I remember when it used to be easy
I remember when, I remember when

Define your meaning of war
To me it’s what we do when we’re bored
I feel the heat comin’ off of the blacktop
And it makes me want it more
Because I’m hyped up out of control
If it’s a fight, I’m ready to go
I wouldn’t put my money on the other guy
If you know what I know that I know

It’s been a long time coming
And the table’s turned around
‘Cause one of us is going
One of us is going down
I’m not running,
It’s a little different now
‘Cause one of us is going
One of us is going down

Define your meaning of fun
Is it fucking, drugging or guns
I feel the heat comin’ off of the blacktop
So get ready for another one
Let’s take a trip down memory lane
(Do you remember me?)
The words circling in my brain
(And what you did to me)
You can treat this like another all the same
But don’t cry like a bitch when you feel the pain

It’s been a long time coming
And the table’s turned around
‘Cause one of us is going
One of us is going down
I’m not running,
It’s a little different now
‘Cause one of us is going
One of us is going down

This is hardly worth fighting for
But it’s the little petty shit that I can’t ignore
When my fist hits your face, and your face hits the floor

It’ll be a long time coming
Bet you got the message now
‘Cause I was never going
Yeah, you’re the one that’s going down

One of us is going down
I’m not running,
It’s a little different now
‘Cause one of us is going
One of us is going down

One of us is going down




. . .



Odd one, you're never alone
I'm here and I will reflect you
Both of us basically unattached
To anything or anyone unless we're pretending
You live your life in your head
Some call it imagination
I'd rather focus instead on anything except
What I'm feeling
What I'm feeling
Odd one...

Hey, it's gonna be okay
Hey, we're gonna laugh at this one day

Odd one, I wish I was you
You're never concerned with acceptance
We are all desperately seeking out, a
And fitting with anyone
Who will accept us
But not you, odd one

Hey, it's gonna be okay
Hey, we're gonna laugh at this one day

Hey, it's gonna be okay
Hey, gonna laugh at this one day

Hey, it's gonna be okay
Hey, we're gonna laugh at this one day

Don't let someone tell you you're no-one
Don't let someone tell you you're no-one
Odd one...

The window's cracked, I'm looking out
I see her and I'm filled with doubt
I don't know if this parking place
Is just another empty space
Words I've said aren't coming true
I don't know if it's me or you
This promise is too hard to keep
I have to speak

So what, I lied
But the truth would've been suicide
Monogamy is all she wants from me
But I see my life
And it's way too short
Don't blame me for not being subservient to others' needs
I'm at the point where honesty just doesn't fucking work for me

I did my best to try and be
A mirror of society
But we both know the mirror's cracked
And everybody's in the act
Faking what they cannot feel
Hoping they can make it real
Reality is killing me

So what, I lied
But the truth would've been suicide
Monogamy is all she wants from me
But I see my life
And it's way too short
Don't blame me for not being subservient to others' needs
I'm at the point where honesty just doesn't fucking work for me

Monogamy is all she wants from me
But I see my life
And it's way too short

Erect a life I'll never see
I'll stand back from the scenery
And laugh at all the other guys
Who never could escape in time
Stuck like flies on sticky tongues
Chewed up 'fore their life is done
I'm not here to compromise or apologize

So what, I lied
But the truth would've been suicide
Monogamy is all she wants from me
But I see my life
And it's way too short
Don't blame me for not being subservient to others' needs
I'm at the point where honesty just doesn't fucking work for me

Life-is too fucking short
It's too fucking short
It's too fucking short


. . .



I've had too many days
Where I'm ready to break
There's gotta be more
There's gotta be more
So I ingest everything
'Cause I'm in it to win
Nothing but time on my side
Anywhere I choose
'Cause I wasn't built to lose
And you think I'm going to fail
Face down on the floor
Just because I'm
Hi hi

As for me
I have to disagree

'Cause I'm one who will survive
The ones you eat alive
And nobody puts up a fight
They die!
They die!
Rolling dollar bills
And popping all these pills
But I'll do what I wanna do
'Cause I wasn't built to lose

You keep making the rounds
You push me to the ground
Making you feel bigger than real
But I'm so fucking sick of your face
I'm not running a race
I'm running away
I'm running away
While everybody else
Is happy on the shelf
And I want it messily wrestling everything down
Everything down
Down, down

As for I,
I'm way too fucking high

'Cause I'm one who will survive
The ones you eat alive
And nobody puts up a fight
They die!
They die!
Rolling dollar bills
And popping all these pills
But I'll do what I wanna do
'Cause I wasn't built to lose

There has gotta be more [4x]

'Cause I'm one who will survive
The ones you eat alive
And nobody puts up a fight
They die!
They die!
Rolling dollar bills
And popping all these pills
But I'll do what I wanna do
'Cause I wasn't built to lose

Now break this fucking place, go!
I'm so sick of your face
I'm not running a race
I'm running away
I'm running away, away
I'm so sick of your face
I'm not running a race
I'm running away
I'm running away, away


. . .



You take me for a ride and I don't even know the setup
Get into a fight just to make the sex better
You got a hold of me but there ain't nothing here that's holding you down
I believed in this except it wasn't getting better
You got me in the middle but I never found the center
Even when you know what I know it's not stopping you now

I can't always see what's in front of me
No I can hardly breathe suffocating me bleeding it out
All over the ground

Tell me when it's over
Wake me when I'm sober
The scars too hard to hide
I should've known better
If only I could be strong enough to see that it's over
I wish I'd never met you
'Cause you were supposed to be coming back to me
Where are you now?
I should've known better

I got a new plan but it ain't nothing but a mirror
Of everything we had just before you became a winner
The love the lie is nothing but a memory now

I can't always see what's in front of me
No I can hardly breathe suffocating me bleeding it out
All over the ground

Tell me when it's over
Wake me when I'm sober
The scars too hard to hide
I should've known better
If only I could be strong enough to see that it's over
I wish I'd never met you
'Cause you were supposed to be coming back to me
Where are you now?
I should've known better

You take me for a ride and I don't even know the setup
Get into a fight just to make the sex better
You got a hold of me but there ain't nothing here that's holding you down
I believed in this except it wasn't getting better
You got me in the middle but I never found the center
Even when you know what I know it's not stopping you now

I can't always see what's in front of me
No I can hardly breathe suffocating me bleeding it out
All over the ground

Tell me when it's over
Wake me when I'm sober
The scars too hard to hide
I should've known better
If only I could be strong enough to see that it's over
I wish I'd never met you
'Cause you were supposed to be coming back to me
Where are you now?

Tell me when it's over
Wake me when I'm sober
The scars too hard to hide
I should've known better
If only I could be strong enough to see that it's over
I wish I'd never met you
'Cause you were supposed to be coming back to me
Where are you now?
I should've known better

So wake me when I'm sober
The scars too hard to hide
I should've known better
If only I could be strong enough to see that it's over
I wish I'd never loved you
'Cause you were supposed to be coming back to me
Where are you now?

Maybe I'm a dreamer
Maybe I'm misunderstood
Maybe you're not seeing the side of me you should
Maybe I'm crazy
(Maybe I'm crazy)
Maybe I'm the only one
(Maybe I'm the only one)
Maybe I'm just out of touch
Maybe I've just had enough

Maybe it's time to change
And leave it all behind
I've never been one to walk alone
I've always been scared to try
So why does it feel so wrong
To reach for something more
To wanna live a better life
What am I waiting for?
'Cause nothing stays the same
Maybe it's time to change

Maybe it's hopeless
(Maybe it's hopeless)
Maybe I should just give up
(Maybe I should just give up)
What if I can't trust myself?
What if I just need some help?

Maybe it's time to change
And leave it all behind
I've never been one to walk alone
I've always been scared to try
So why does it feel so wrong
To reach for something more
To wanna live a better life
What am I waiting for?
'Cause nothing stays the same
Maybe it's time to change

And maybe it's time to change
And leave it all behind
I've never been one to walk alone
I've always been scared to try

And maybe it's time to change
And leave it all behind
I've never been one to walk alone
I've always been scared to try
So why does it feel so wrong
To reach for something more
To wanna live a better life
What am I waiting for?
'Cause nothing stays the same
Maybe it's time to change
'Cause nothing stays the same
Maybe it's time to change


. . .



I'm feeling so afraid
'Cause everything that I do lately
Makes you angry
I've never been so ashamed
It really felt like you and me were
Getting better

I hope that you still want me
I hope it's not too late

Don't walk away
And leave me without a reason
When there's too much to say
That hasn't been said
I know I was wrong
And I'm sorry for making the same mistakes
Don't walk away

Can you really throw away
All the times that we've recovered
One another
And I know I make it hard
But how long should I pay for being
Unappealing

I know you want to want me
I see it in your eyes

Don't walk away
And leave me without a reason
When there's too much to say
That hasn't been said
I know I was wrong
And I'm sorry for making the same mistakes
Don't walk away

Wish I could take it back
But you know I can't
I hope one day you understand
No this can't be the end
This is the end

And I know I make it hard

Don't walk away
And leave me without a reason
When there's too much to say
That hasn't been said
I know I was wrong
And I'm sorry for making the same mistakes
Don't walk away

Don't walk away
(Don't walk away)
Don't walk away
(No, no, no!)
Don't walk away
Don't walk away
(Don't walk away)

It felt like you and me were getting better


. . .



If you want to know how far to go to hell
Just ask me
If you want to see the view from your knees
Come down and join me
I'm the final straw
The nail in the coffin
Just by being who I am
Is so Goddamned

I'm not the master of the Universe
I walk the Earth the wrong way
Met my potential and fulfilled the worst
My best is cursed the wrong way

Your glass is half, his glass is full
My glass is empty
You're running short of not enough
Well I got plenty
I've come a long way
I went the wrong way
And who I am
Is so Goddamned

I'm not the master of the Universe
I walk the Earth the wrong way
Met my potential and fulfilled the worst
My best is cursed the wrong way

And when I die I'm gonna fly and come and get you
And when you try and run I'll be the curse above you
It's gonna end
It's gonna end

In the race for disaster I will come in first
That's what I've learned
The hard way

What?!

If you want to know how far to go to hell
Just ask me
If you want to see the view from your knees
Come down and join me

I've come a long way
I went the wrong way
I've come a long way
I went the wrong way
I've come a long way
I went the wrong way


. . .



There's a time when we try
To begin what is ending
If at first you don't succeed
Then we just end up pretending
If the dream isn't real
Is the lie worth defending?
Close your eyes, cover your ears
Shut your mouth

You can act naЇve
But I know you're not stupid

You'll wake up when I walk out
Isn't that the way it plays?
The leaver leaves, the stayer stays
You wouldn't make a move, so I made mine
Isn't it a pity?
I wish you were really in it for life
I wish that you were in it for life

What you give is what you get
And what you got's now next to nothing
'Cause the life that you've accepted
Is the one that's least disruptive
Are you aware of the fact
That when I pull, there's no pulling back
You have half the mind, half the heart
Half the will

You can act naЇve
But I know you're not stupid

You'll wake up when I walk out
Isn't that the way it plays?
The leaver leaves, the stayer stays
You wouldn't make a move, so I made mine
Isn't it a pity?
I wish you were really in it for life
I wish that you were in it for life

Some people talk like they can't hear
Some people walk but get nowhere
And when I'm done with the run I'm going on
I'm sure I'll be
Your biggest regret
You'll never forget

You'll wake up when I walk out
Isn't that the way it plays?
The leaver leaves, the stayer stays
You wouldn't make a move, so I made mine
Isn't it a pity?
I wish you were really in it for life
I wish that you were in it for life

Yeah you can run, but you can't hide
'Cause everything you're running from
Is locked inside
So let it the fuck out!


. . .



I'm holding onto white balloons
Up against a sky of doom
Tell me you see them
'Cause what's inside of me is invisible to most
Even in clear view
I'm sending out a signal to the possibility of you
'Cause right at this moment
I know you're connected to a part of me that I don't even know myself

The changes in me
Are likely to be like the weather
Stormy and clear strength into fear bound together

But I'll break my silence
If I believed that you and me could ever be
More than just what's been behind us
I tried and left, they came and went
I got rejected out again
But no one believes me
I've worn a hundred faces
Of the character replacements and now
Nobody sees me

The changes in me
Are likely to be like the weather
Cloudy at best...

Angels lift me
Are you with me?
I'm holding onto you like
I'm holding onto white balloons
Carry me away
I hope that you don't break
Angels lift me
Are you with me?
I'm holding onto you like
I'm holding onto white balloons
Carry me away
I hope that you don't break
I hope that you don't break
Don't break

'Cause what's inside of me is invisible to most
Even in clear view


. . .



[Verse 1]
We have a situation here
It's clear, it's not disappearing
We keep fucking what is pure
No cure, and it keeps happening
Over and over again
Over and over again
We have a situation here
It's clear, it's here

[Chorus]
Dead space
The only thing that's left to fear is
To late to ever start again
They rape us over and over and over and over
But I'm still alive
But I'm still alive in this dead space

[Verse 2]
They're not gonna let us out of here
The fear is taking over
We need to get up out of here
It's clear, the sky is falling
It's falling on top of our heads
It's falling while we're in our beds
They're not gonna let us out of here
They're not gonna let us out of here

[Chorus]
Dead space
The only thing that's left to fear is
To late to ever start again
They rape us over and over and over and over
But I'm still alive
But I'm still alive in this dead space

Dead space
The only thing that's left to fear is
To late to ever start again
They rape us over and over and over and over
But I'm still alive
But I'm still alive in this dead space!


. . .


I live with the life that I made
I get from the things that I gain (might be gave also)
My arms are outstretched I hope for the best
And act rich before I get paid

I sold off my soul for these jeans (genes??)
Wherever I go it's a scene
Everyone's staring as I act not caring
Attention is breathing to me

Oh I am The Pretender.

My confidence pours in this glass
It helps me to hide from my past
Life of the party I know everybody
But no one gets beyond? this mask

Oh I'm The Pretender.
Oh another pretty pretender
Yeah

I tell her whatever it takes
My truth is as shifting as shapes
I kiss her and hug and tell her I love her
Then laugh as i tend her heartbreak?

Oh I am The Pretender
Oh I'm just a pretender

Oh I am The Pretender
Oh I am The Pretender

. . .


(Verse 1)
Face me, you won't escape from me
I gotta make you see
what's keeping me alive
inside only the blame survives
now it's too late to hide
It's down to you and I

(Pre-chorus)
Fake how you treat me
and make me believe

(Chorus)
I've had more than I can take
There's nothing you can say
cause everything I wanted
you took away
That way you made me feel
was never even real
you made me now I won't stop
Til something breaks

(Verse 2)
You've shown me just what you want with me
the lie everyone believes
and now it's coming out
face down, screaming without a sound
you oughta know by now
it's gonna come around

(Chorus)
I've had more than I can take
I'm drowning in the pain
cause everything I wanted
you took away
That way you made me feel
was never even real
you made me now I won't stop
Til something breaks

I've had more than I can take
you'll never know the pain
cause everything I wanted
you took away
That way you made me feel
was never even real
you made me now I won't stop
Til something breaks

It's more than I can take
you'll never know the pain
cause everything I wanted
you took away
That way you made me feel
was never even real
you made me now I won't stop
Til something breaks
