fucked it up again. but i'm not looking the other way.
i see my errors and i know i'm wrong, but it's gonna
take way more than that
to change my ways and start thinking straight,
be the person i aspire to be.
own up to myself. turn my life around.
make amends to my friends, i owe to myself and them.
pledge of allegiance to myself. so i must fucking say: i will change
no more selfish ways, no more for # 1; its done.
arrogance is of the past: so i must fucking say: i will change
Armed With A Mind
caked up and faked up,
she's obsessed with the outside.
nothing earned, too afraid to fail.
so she leads a hollow life void of insight
loving what you see, but you fear what you think
because of your mind and your body
there's a missing fucking link
that leaves you vulnerable, susceptible to pain
you're a garden of potential submerged in the rain
Life Is Hard Enough
ambitions fail, complications hail all when
my insecurities all fucking prevail.
do i turn to a drink or into what i really wanna be?
is a substance gonna be the crutch thats gonna
set me fucking free?
the pressure rises and i feel the strain
the doubt begins and confusions reign
directionless where do i turn
don't fail me now the one thing that i've learned...
i've learned the strength to fucking push it aside
Old Man II (Last Words And Lessons Learned)
"i remember the man who just wanted life to live and let live
while we're searching for our lives."
black elk never should you forget,
people want to see you bleed.
sink not to their level,
surrender only what they need
Song Of Shame
let me tell you a story about the man who loved to play with fire
he's the backfired rocketship, he's the seed that never splits
some trees just cant bloom....they'll never
born in a life of opportunity with every chance to excel
instead took his fucking chances with the cheapest goddamn thrills
he'd do anything, he'd take anything for a moments satisfaction
sweet seconds of pleasure could never measure to his agonizing life
in the dark night, he tries to remember a future so bright
I see the free which you enslave,
The walking you keep chained
I see the growth which keep caged
And I've seen the minds that go un-raged
I see the body robbed of soul
To be the fuel for your control
I see the standing knocked to their knees,
And I've seen the human beings you treat
he was a kind hearted man in a hateful world
who caught every thing that life ever hurled
like the oldest mountain he always stood so tall
forever showing what it means to be unbreakable
paycheck to paycheck,
3 jobs a day,
he's the ransom for his family's pain
in the coldest world with the warmest heart,
he puts to shame what you consider hard
he's the man you don't see in the mirror
To Us Fools
to our foundations who fell apart
and all us kids who believed in you
to all the kids that you sold out
and all of us you made feel like fools
we'll stand hard
we'll hold true
we wont let go like you motherfuckers.
Watch Me Rise
"goddamn", he said, "i promised myself
i'd never feel this fucking way
again, this world has got me praying on my knees
for one peaceful thought
in my mind,
is consumed with a thousand thoughts
Watch Me Sink
a breaking in spirit, a breaking in promise, a breaking in me
how can i find the peace inside me, in a world i can see....
thats taking and taking all for ourselves, taking and taking
and its dragging me down, deeper and deeper
watch me sink like a stone
in a sea of selfishness,
where me is more and you is less
the vanity, it becomes insanity.
we eat the shit that's fed to us.
