when everyone lies at the same time lies become the truth when everyone lies at the same time lies become the truth yes they do dark black clouds of capitalist lies carrying dark rule to me and you cause we all hail the thieves who gladly steal everything while chaining us poor to their laws and miss liberty she lost her eye's years ago and we'll soon forget her name she lost her eye's years ago and we'll soon forget her face we say no no more sleeping in the alleys no no more bloody afternoons there'll be no more happy ever after when the Robin Hoods rise and burn the fools gold dark black clouds all dressed in blue carrying dark rule to me and you dark black clouds all dressed in blue carrying dark rule to me and you cause they all hail the thieves who gladly pay them what they need while chaining us poor to their whore miss liberty she lost her eye's years ago and we'llsoon forget her name she lost her eye's years ago and we'll soon forget her face we say no no more sleeping in the alleys no no more bloody afternoons there'll be no more happy ever after when the Robin Hoods rise and burn the fools gold

i’ve got to find a better way than we do it now need to answer question that i don't want to find out like where it is you’re going and just where have you been how many were here before, how many let you in from the rain let me in from the rain now dripping wet with alcohol, searching for a bathroom stall i can't recall were you there holding me then where this blood all coming from i feel fine but just incase please keep me company for a while i could use some company for a while while finding lines that someone drew, stepped over and then we knew just how much further i had to go all in all its not that bad, the time we shared the moments had sad songs we all sang, when you were feeling blue and if i had the heart, i would wear it on my sleeve try a build a balance between anger, lust and greed something to hold onto just to keep me on the ground something to hide under while the rain is coming down is there some better way than fate has arranged i know you’ve tried but little has changed there’s a mute giant in a hospital bed a funeral pyre on the street where we lived oh lord, you're taking things we just can't afford and everyday you want more and more seems like everyday you want more and more yes everyday you want more and more.....

I'm chasing the devil tonight And I've got all my friends by my side There's no one home to wonder where I am So I can become the night, me and my red hands Heavy lies the tide where I pull my head out from For I am staring down the long barrel of a gun The shot was fired long ago and now I'm biding my time I'm scraping through my cheap thrills for twenty dollars a night And when I caught up to him He shanked me in my side As I spit blood he said, "You have to come close to dying if you want to feel alive."

Take me out now with a bottle of pills just take me out man I can't sit still take me out now with a bottle a day just keep me calm keep the doctor's away Take me home I wanna go home I wanna go home I want to sustain In your head mama we scream and we fight there's dogs in the street now howling at the sky disillusioned here but not afraid to die in your head my dear now we scream and we fight Take me home I wanna go home I wanna go home I want to sustain Take me out now with a bottle of pills just take me out man I can't sit still take me out now with a bottle a day just keep me calm keep the doctor's away Take me home I wanna go home I wanna go home I want to sustain

you’re your very own worst enemy the quintessence of how life’s just not fair bathe yourself in pity like the salt did to the sea and pray to god there’s something there no its not funny anymore they quit laughing with you long ago no one’s born a victim like you’ve made yourself to be you’re your very own worst enemy there will always be someone to blame everywhere you’ve been and where you’ll go people are the same except the faces and the names and the more you learn the less you really know and all those empty bottles by the bottom of the bed do they help to ward off fever dreams or are they just used as a crutch and an excuse when things are really much worse than they seem

My faith is born of failure I know what I know It drags me down but I tow that line With a sorrow heavy soul and, a stone among the coals there is no escape now from the fire Don't choke, Don't choke Move away from me and breathe better Don't choke, Don't choke My heart reads like the weather Don't choke I was born to a veteran bitter and dis-eased I still crawl in the shadow he cast His violent life left its mark on all our hearts We buried him with a hole in his chest Don't choke, Don't choke Move away from me and breathe better Don't choke, Don't choke My heart reads like the weather Don't choke At the table of the master There are birds, beasts and bread The wine in the cups that flow over They pour down around my head With our hearts just how they are All cut and beat to shit Our minds, they flow over Until all we see is black and red A tightening of the chest Hold your breath and count to ten The room is thick with the burden of wrongs we can't amend Don't choke, Don't choke Move away from me and breathe better Don't choke, Don't choke My heart reads like the weather Don't choke Don't choke, Don't choke Move away from me and breathe better Don't choke, Don't choke my heart is under the weather

I was Ahab's first mate Long before 'ol Ishmael I was lying in that belly of a whale For years before and after Jonas tale I was Christ's first born son My mother Mary named me Dharma I was there when Jerusalem fell and I was Virgil's guide in Dante's Hell Ophelia don't you judge me from what you see Ophelia don't you judge me I hauled stones for the pharaohs tomb I fought sharks with the Indy doomed Got my revenge back in '86 With Mundus and Braddick killing a Monster on the Cricket I sung songs with the Chicago 8 and We were still singing when the bomb blew I was there in the square free but helpless As I watched the hangman tie each noose Ophelia don't you judge me from what you see Ophelia don't you judge me I've been a pauper I've been a general's son I've been a slave picking cotton I've bled the hate and caressed the love But it's all just for nothing if for you it's not enough Ophelia don't you judge me from what you see Ophelia don't you judge me

Let write this life like an old movie script where the plot holes are filled with the common idea that everything we receive and give are all one when you can’t always repair these damages done to yourself or the people you know when we all play a part of this traveling show all the heros, villians, bit cameo parts where will you stand when that great curtain drops i hope you know we’re all going to hell if in fact we’re not already there i still wish you well the intermission approaching us to fast leaves a vague starting point at a last second half lessons that we all have learned and forgot as we still see ourselves as something we’re not through these mirrors which were hung in homes to try and reflect the fact we’re not alone in a world where it seems like there’s nobody there no-one pays attention when even less care we take lines which were etched on the walls “Jesus hates your guts” now why can’t we all and anger was replace with grief, love and pain the fire went out but the ashes remain So i hope you know we’re all going to hell concubines, vagabonds, charlatans carry on with one voice they yell they say strike the set dont leave anything you may regret for we dont have a say in this director’s cut we all play our part but we’re all getting fucked so i hope you know we’re all going to hell if in fact we’re not already there then i still wish you well
