Drugs

I'm on the list where do I sign up?
I followed the crowd to get some
With no pain, on cocaine, you half-brain
And blow up, blow up, just to blow up

I got the cash, don't get tough
It's not greed just give me the stuff
You're in the wrong place, such a waste,
you got a bad taste 
For some fun, for some fun, for some fun

On Drugs

I got the look so let me in the club
I got you like a ring around my finger
It's just a game, we never change, always the same
Same old luck, same old luck, same old luck

I'm not a cry for help, I'm not a cry for help!
I just want what's good for me and no one else
I can't lose if I choose to stay loose
And get well and get well and get well

On Drugs

Pleasure

Go slow, we live in the haze of 
Stains on the sheets like ink on the pages
How low, well we'll never know 
The important papers, you push through the changes
It's for show, our hearts in our chest
We all try our best, even just for the children
You know it's all in your head
When your dreams fall apart as you try to build them

We fall in love with the same old lie

Sometimes it looks like it feels
And it's no big deal, you don't find it funny
It's fine, you walk down the line
You need a straight face to keep all the money

I bent over backwards to show you
I mean it people; please believe me
Wont you hear what I put in you ear
coz I'll say it again till it really hits home

We fall in love with the same old lie

Powerful People

Look at the powerful people
Stuck in their wonderful world
Who is gonna help them?
Giving them what they deserve
Call on them powerful people
Showing me the way
Heavy is the feeling
Bringing them down with the weight

Now I feel it
And I need you
Please let me in
My powerful people
Oh I need it
And I feel you
Please let me in
My powerful people
Save all the powerful people
Digging up the ground
Truth for the powerful people
Don't ever fool them around
Nobody but the powerful people
With the power in their eyes
Can feel the pain of living
Knowing that they're gonna die

Now I feel it
And I need you
Please let me in
My powerful people
Oh I need it
And I feel you
Please let me in
My powerful people

Oh my people

Back Then

Jumping back to beginnings when it all kicked off
When we all were lost and I can't help grinning
Coz we were all so young and we felt so tough
Had our feet on the street but we lifted off
When we began to talk and we all let go
Yes it was set in stone, no one could know
It was put it place and we never alone
We were caught up in it and I'll never forget it

I just wanna be back then

Living never made more sense
Picking up ten and passing out again
It became a home from home
And we were never alone from end to end
For a while we were there on the right side
Making hours count in the daytime
When it came to an end we were swept up with it
Just messed up kids but I'll never forget it

I just wanna be back then

On the Board

I got the moves 
I got the moves
I'm on the board moving forward
Coz I watch the clock 
And I wait for things to drop
And if you hide behind 
The white winner delight
Well you might have tried
But I'll show you how to play

I can't forget
I can't forget
That cigarette that you never lit
While I took here and there
You had your hands against your head
If we can both agree
Another round and I'll take you down
And in the end
In the end I hear you say

Yeh I know it's pretty great, it's pretty great
The way you play, the way you play
Yeh I know it's pretty great, it's pretty great
The way you play, so show me more...
On the board

I never lose
I never lose
I work the board for me
I keep it under control 
As you crumble underneath
We see a pattern emerge 
Without words, we take turns
And I bring it back from defeat

The empty squares fill a void
Among the opening lines
That are built to destroy
It's only mind versus mind
You turn your eyes on to me
You're mouthing something discreet
Gold and silver words
I know you know we agree

Yeh I know it's pretty great, it's pretty great
The way you play, the way you play
Yeh I know it's pretty great, it's pretty great
The way you play, so show me more...
On the board

I got the moves 
Gold and silver words
I never lose

Gods

I'm driving out of here 
And cutting out the fools
Living in their dream 
Of wearing all the jewels
That sugar in your mouth 
Gold teeth are gonna roll
Your words seem to deflate 
You're really getting old
The guns are on the table 
Amendment to possession
I tried to runaway 
Bang bang! Learned my lesson
Your going in a box 
Holding what you own
Holding back the tears
So grown up or overgrown?

The more that you see it 
The more that you want
Mix up the messages 
To uncover the Gods
It's deep in the smoke 
Shrouded and hurt
Wake up and we'll make it work

So many choices, easy to make
Or easy to fool into mistakes
Somewhere neon is flashing 
The prices are right
You race to the front 
To leave the rest outside
Are we reeling it in? 
Or getting carried away?
Rudely awakened 
By a slap in the face
The hangman gets tired 
The rope wears thin
Struggle much longer 
They might let you live

Remove distractions
Improve on destitution
Value evolution
Come to conclusions

The more that you see it 
The more that you want
Mix up the messages 
To uncover the Gods
It's deep in the smoke 
Shrouded and hurt
Wake up and we'll make it work

We'll make it work

Buy and Sell

I'm a customer
If only knew
The difference between
Taught and true
See I was sold on
And it all went wrong
And I ended up
Up on the shelf

Buy and sell
Save yourself
Buy and sell
Go to hell

I've read about
What I haven't seen
And I'll never see
Without the green
The greasy palm
I'm dancing on
It's all gone wrong
I've sold myself

Buy and sell
Save yourself
Buy and sell
Go to hell

Play with me
Like another toy
Get to work 
On all the young boys
Tell the girls
To shave themselves
So everyone...
So everyone can tell

Buy and sell
Save yourself
Buy and sell
Go to hell

A Friend

We cry like kids just the same
No one taking the blame
You only stayed for the night
You only came for the fight
Like a desperate claw 
At the jugular vein
I only told you to stop
You only came back again
Whenever someone you lose
Is something you have to choose
There's a depth to the pain
And the same of regret
It feels just like a wound
Another childish bruise
Just like the other ones
You won't forget

Tell me tell me
Sweet dreams are never enough
You think you've made the connection
But you're making it up
Another failed attempt 
At something you believe
Another shot in the dark
And one more hole in the heart
The last time again
You promise this is the end
The reel is out for the fish
Cool water welcomes you in
You're right to stay on your feet
Just about to get in
Cautious to begin
Cautious again

And when I'm alone you are my only friend
And I remember again how you were on my side
Coz as time goes by you're still a friend of mine
You're still a friend of mine

Blood Red Hand

I crawled on my hands and knees
Just to keep it all intact
Everyone took something from me
And gave nothing back
Well the devil was in my eyes
Holding his hand out to me
He was everything that I despised
Trying to cut a deal

Come on I'm halfway there
Won't you meet me in the middle?
If we keep going around again
You can meet in the middle

I looked at his blood red hand
And tried to turn away
But the more I tried and tried
The harder it became
He looked me in the eyes
And I saw through his cheap tricks
But everything that I desired 
Was in his grip

Come on I'm halfway there
Won't you meet me in the middle?
If we keep going around again
You can meet in the middle

Ring

Girl, you're calling all these people your friends
You got a lesson to learn; you better learn it quick
Better to be ducking out before they make you a mess
Sucked into a hole and spat out again
That noise in your ears it ain't worth the breath
You see what they need is a hole in the head
You tell me it's better, better than being deaf
And I tell you it's worse, worse than being dead

Girl, you don't really matter to them
All they want is more, more money to spend
On another absolutely useless party dress
They add up to nothing: the success of worthlessness
Don't you mind people grinning in your face?
You call them a friend and see what they say
They pick you and put you down like they made a mistake
They don't know how to give they only know how to take

Get out of the ring

We are no longer individuals.
We are the powerful people.
Together not apart.
Inclusive not exclusive.
Redefined not predefined.
