Open Wide (bonus track on Japanese release)
. . .



I'm still scared
Afraid of failing
anticipating
that had to end
before the wheels begin to move

(Chorus)
Run Away
So I can hide
Run Away
I've Mastered feeling nothing
Run Away
I'm dead inside
Run Away
Why don't I care

Waste my time
Commiserating
self medicating
it's my design
although I know you don't approve

(Chorus)

The truth
is that I’m not so good
At showing how I feel
And keeping my mouth shut
When there's something to conceal
And knowing how to love
Love's not in my memory
How can I rise above
All my insecurities

(Chorus)

Run Away
I find the time
The
Still by my side

. . .



I know I've been mistaken,
but just give me a break and see the changes that I've made.
I've got some imperfections,
But how can you collect them all
And throw them in my face?

[Chorus]
But you always find a way to keep me right here waiting
You always find the words to say to keep me right here waiting
And if you chose to walk away I'd still be right here waiting
Searching for the things to say to keep you right here waiting

I hope you're not intending
To be so condescending, it's as much as I can take.
And you're so independent, you just refuse to bend
So I keep bending 'till I break

[Chorus]
But you always find a way to keep me right here waiting
You always find the words to say to keep me right here waiting
And if you chose to walk away I'd still be right here waiting
Searching for the things to say to keep you right here waiting

I've made a commitment, I'm willing to bleed for you
I needed fulfillment
I found what I need in you

Why can't you just forgive me?
I don't want to relive the mistakes I've made along the way...

But I always find a way to keep you right here waiting
I always find the words to say to keep you right here waiting

[Chorus - Altered]
But you always find a way to keep me right here waiting
You always find the words to say to keep me right here waiting
And if I chose to walk away, would you be right here waiting?

. . .



You take this all for granted
All the things they used to feed you
By keeping you distracted
Just long enough to feed you

(Chorus)
A reason for your anger
Is what I need Is what I need
To recognize the truth
Is what I need Is what I need
So burn your paper Jesus
Is what I need Is what I need
and own the things you do
Is what I need Is what I need

question what they tell you
all the lies that they are teaching
and they made a corporation
out of desperate people's feelings

(Chorus)

Somebody chose these words for you
Interpretations of the truth
Somewhere behind your fear they hide
To fill the holes inside


. . .



Are you afraid
Afraid of the truth
In mirrors staring back at you
the image is cracked
but so is the view, yeah
and the strength of a tree
begins in the roots
that I tenderly buried into you
At least now the storm
Can blow me away

(Chorus)
So crawl inside
my head with me
I'll show you how
it feels to be
To blame like me

Should I be afraid
Of this face that I see
In the mirror staring back at me
So cold were the days
When I listened to you
And you SAY THAT I'M WEAK!
So show me the proof
Because I still exist in spite of you
But I won't compete
With you every day

(Chorus)

Schizophrenic conversations
that I'm always having with myself
I hear these
voices in my head competing maybe I could use a little help
I still have schizophrenic conversations when there's no-one around to hear
And I long for solitude and peace within me
Pouring out all the anger and the fear

So crawl inside
My head with me
And I'll show you how it feels to be
Fucked up like me
I'll show you how it feels to be
To blame like me

. . .



You - In your shell
Are you waiting for someone to rescue you from yourself?
Don't be disappointed when no one comes...
[Pre-Chorus]
Don't blame me, you didn't get it… (x3)
[Chorus]
I already told you that falling is easy
It's getting back up that becomes the problem, becomes the problem.
If you don't believe you can find the way out
You've become the problem, become the problem.

You - All alone
Are you waiting for someone to make you whole?
Can't you see?
Aren't you tired of this dysfunctional routine?
[Pre-Chorus]
Don't blame me, you didn't get it...(x3)
[Chorus]
I already told you that falling is easy
It's getting back up that becomes the problem, becomes the problem.
If you don't believe you can find the way out
You've become the problem, become the problem.

[Bridge]

[Chorus]
I already told you that falling is easy
It's getting back up that becomes the problem, becomes the problem.
If you don't believe you can find the way out
You've become the problem, become the problem.

[Chorus - Altered]
Falling is easy
It's getting back up that becomes the problem, becomes the problem.
And if you believe you can find a way out
Then you've solved the problem,

. . .



Twisting
Turning
Crashing
Burning
All this
Just to
Break me
Down

(chorus)
You know me
You see me
You own me cuz I don't care
But I'm still here
Impatiently waiting for you to disappear
Is this my cross to bear

Faceless
Faking
Pushing
Taking
All this
Just to
Bring me
Down

(chorus)

You know me
You own me cuz I'm aware
That I'm still here
Impatiently waiting for you to disappear
Is this my cross to bear

I'm still here
Reluctantly waiting for you to interfere

. . .



She sits alone again and tries her best not to pretend that all she used to live
for was the love that wasn't there
And every time she needs to do the things that she believes will fill the void
inside of her cuz he was never there

And she said
I swear I'm not the devil
who do you think I am?
I swear I'm not the devil
And she said
I swear I'm not the devil
who do you think I am?
I swear I'm not the devil

He tries to sleep again and wonders when the pain will end the cuts they may run
deeper than his cracking ever should
He looks with tired eyes at all the people hypnotized and wonders what can save
him from a self-created hell

And he said
I swear I'm not the devil
who do you think I am?
I swear I'm not the devil
And He said
I swear I'm not the devil
who do you think I am?
I swear I'm not the devil

I always fail to see the little things in front of me the things that mean so
much to you a way to let you know
That I appreciate the way you always tolerate but sometimes when I medicate
frustration in you shows me how you feel

But I swear I'm not the devil
who do you think I am?
I swear I'm not the devil
and I scream
I swear I'm not the devil
who do you think I am?

. . .



Can't you see that I'm sick of this?
Chances are you're oblivious
To how I feel, Sitting on your throne
And I'm sure that I'm not alone, not alone, not alone...

Tell me please, who the fuck did you want me to be?
Was it something that I couldn't see?
Never knew this would be so political
And please, I'm still wearing this miserable skin
And it's starting to tear from within
But it's obvious that doesn't bother you
So please...

I didn't think that you'd sell me out
Now I know what you're all about
You might feel in control of things
But you're not holding all the strings, all the strings, all the strings...

Tell me please, who the fuck did you want me to be?
Was it something that I couldn't see?
Never knew this would be so political
And please, I'm still wearing this miserable skin
And it's starting to tear from within
But it's obvious that doesn't matter to you

I swallowed all your answers; I've swallowed all my pride
You've used up all your chances,
To keep this all inside

Tell me please, who the fuck did you want me to be?
Was it something that I couldn't see?
Never knew this would be so political
And please I'm still wearing this miserable skin
And it's starting to tear from within
But it's obvious that doesn't bother you
So please, don't keep telling me that it's okay
I don't buy all the shit that you say
And quite honestly I'm fucking sick of it
So please, if I cut off this nose from my face
Then I wouldn't feel so out of place
But it still wouldn't be quite enough for you,

. . .



If you just walked away
What could I really say?
would it matter anyway?
would it change how you feel?

I am the mess you chose
the closet you can not close
The devil in you I suppose
'cuz the wounds never heal

(Chorus)
But everything changes
if I could turn back the years
If you could learn to forgive me
then I could learn to feel

Sometimes the things I say
In moments of disarray
Succumbing to the games we play
To make sure that it's real

(Chorus)

When it's just me and you
Who knows what we could do
If we can just make it through
through this part of the day

(Chorus)

Then we could
Stay here together
And we could
Conquer the world
If we could
Say that forever
It's more than just a word

If you just walked away
What could I really say?
It wouldn't matter anyway.

. . .



I can't believe
How far I've come
Now watch me stumble
And come undone
If you take away
These memories
Then all that's left
Is just me

(Chorus)
Cuz I don't want this
And I don't need this
And I don't feel this
It seems that even though she's with me
I can't shake this
And I can't fake this
And I won't take this
Anymore

So you choose
To break my heart
Should have seen this
From the start
I'm haunted by
Your apathy
All that's left
Is killing me

(Chorus)

You believe
That the way you choose to be
I've always had to see
The brighter side of this so I don't lose my faith
Now the sun has gone away
It's getting colder every day
So before I freeze to death
There's something I should say

(Chorus)

Though you say you understand
You still won't face this
Can't erase this
I won't embrace this

. . .



You, I trusted your intentions
A trust you took advantage of
Now you are sitting in the hole that you dug around yourself

You've lied so much you think it's true
Do you know what the truth is?
How does someone get to be like you?
The king of all excuses

Is she your partner in deception or caught inside the web you’ve spun?
Did you forget that you were family, the damage you have done

You've lied so much you think it's true
Do you know what the truth is?
How does someone get to be like you?
The king of all excuses

I trusted you, I trusted in you

You've lied so much you think it's true
Do you know what the truth is?
How does someone get to be like you?
The king of all excuses

Everything must come full circle,
It kills me that I feel this hurtful,
I wonder what your children think of you,

. . .



I have seen
Too many sad eyes look at me
And eyes that set me free
All the places that I've been

(Chorus)
Thank you for
The letters that you thought you wrote in vain
And for
The times you chose to stand out in the rain
And wait
For me
For me

Your words
Your words have made us see
A little honesty
In a world that doesn't share
And your eyes
Tell the story of your pain
Severity of your
In a world that doesn't care

(Chorus)

You
You understand my pain
From this I gather strength
In that we are the same

(Chorus)

The life I live would never be the same
Without you here
You here
You here

. . .


Are you hungry?
Or is your conscience full?
Does it make, you, lonely?
To have these shoes to fill..

Open Wide and remember
All the shit they feed you
What's the point in believing
All the lies they feed you?
From your thoughts of submission
Blow you into slumber
Sleepy eyes can not see

Are we growing?
Or are we caving in?
With the smoke, your, blowing
Damaging my skin

Open Wide and remember
All the shit they feed you
What's the point in believing
All the lies they feed you?
From your thoughts of submission
Blow you into slumber
Sleepy eyes can not see

[Guitar Solo]

Open Wide and remember
All the shit they feed you
What's the point in believing
All the lies they feed you?
From your thoughts of submission
Blow you into slumber
Sleepy eyes can not see
