“Born Again”

Red is for his fingers,

running with our blood-

White is for forgiveness, although I never could-

Black is for the night time-

They fill your head on your dime-

Bow your head in envy,

you’re shameful and you’re empty-

CHORUS:

Born! Again!  (x4)

I’ll be born again, and I’ll be born-

I’ll be born again- Resurrected-

I’ll be born again, and I’ll be born-

I’ll be born again, and rejected

Red is for transfusion-

drain you of your mind-

White is for diffusion-

inciting all man-kind-

Black is for collusion-

We’re pure bread and confined-

Bow your head in envy,

you’re shameful and you’re empty

(CHORUS)

Open up your eyes in the mirror-

and speak to your creator-

Man is such a traitor- you’ll see…. x2

(CHORUS)

“If I Should Die, Before I Wake”

Torrid is the needle-

wash your hands of me-

horrid like a needle-

full of empathy-

(full of empathy x2)

Angry are the voices-

aching for release-

Trigger volume ceases-

disturbance of the peace-

(disturbance of the peace x2)

CHORUS:

And now I lay me down-

I lay me down to sleep

I pray my soul to keep

I pray my soul to keep

Veins that pray for mercy-

Mercy travels deep-

Break and let the sin free-

born into debris-

(born into debris x2)

CHORUS:

And now I lay me down-

I lay me down to sleep

I pray my soul to keep

I pray my soul to keep     x2

“Going, Going, Gone”

I need a hole-

I need a hole-

I need a hole to crawl in-

can’t get away-

can’t get away-

can’t get away but I’m tryin’ …

Who the hell is driving this thing?

Chorus:

Going, going, gone-

The night has just begun-

We’re going going gone-

with all the lights on x2

I need a hole-

I need a hole-

I need a hole- to fall in

can’t get away-

can’t get away-

can’t get one way or another…

(CHORUS)

Guns cocked and loaded-

while the world spins-

you know they love you-

but they’re counting your sins

(I’m Going- gone- )

(CHORUS)

“Ragdoll”

Move me as you will-

bouncing from a string…

Waiting for the kill-

winter into spring…

Counting every stitch-

winding like a wheel…

Wait upon the witch-

she’ll carve you down from steel——

day after day-

day after day-

CHORUS:

I fall and I fall,

I am just your ragdoll-

I fall and I fall,

I am just your ragdoll- x2

Drink of me the wine-

hangin’ by my toes…

Clever in design-

Expensive, and exposed…

Cast me to the side-

wield your wicked way…

Dangle and desire-

you’re leading me astray…

day after day-

day after day-

CHORUS:

I fall and I fall,

I am just your ragdoll-

I fall and I fall,

I am just your ragdoll- x2

I Can’t help myself from myself-

The purpose of life is defeating itself-

I walk to the rhythm of the mighty drum-

It’s hard to believe what we have become-

Dark is the desert where the vultures fly-

picking my bones, until they are dry… x2

CHORUS:

I fall and I fall,

I am just your ragdoll-

I fall and I fall,

I am just your ragdoll- x2

Lost Your Head”

You can’t teach me something-

If I don’t care-

You gotta pretty little mind-

but you left it over there-

Oh oh oh-  x2

Chorus:

Oh where is your head-

you’d be better off dead-

Oh where is your head-

You’ve lost your

You can’t teach me something-

without a good scare-

You gotta pretty little mind-

and it’s leaking everywhere-

Oh oh oh-  x2

Chorus:

Oh where is your head-

you’d be better off dead-

Oh where is your head-

You’ve lost your- x3

SOLO

Chorus:

Oh where is your head-

you’d be better off dead-

Oh where is your head-

You’ve lost your…. head

“HERETIC  (The Rise)”

You know it won’t be long-

till the stars drip- and flip the cause-

Hard to realize-

The tragic flaw in your disguise-

Life keeps spinning on-

Like cheap thrills, we pass on

Hard to sympathize-

Prophets and their battle cries-

They’ll feed the weary to the wolves-

Kids gotta be- whatever they wanna be

CHORUS:

Call me a heretic-

but I’ll teach you a thing or two about living x2

You know it won’t be long-

till the sky rips, and we move on-

Hard to – realize-

revelation’s in our eyes-

Life keeps – gettin’ gone-

like God, and me, were just the pawns-

Hard to – sympathize-

divinity, deceit, and lies-

They’ll feed the weary to the wolves-

Kids gotta be- whatever they wanna be

CHORUS:

Call me a heretic-

but I’ll teach you a thing or two about living x2

Call me a heretic- (call me)

Call me a heretic- (call me)

Call me a heretic-

Call me a heretic-

“Machine”

Fundamentally different than we are accustomed to-

Whimsical and intricate, the notes do what we tell them to-

Let your self unfold and fall,

and find yourself forgetting all-

Nothing is to big to swallow,

black is white, walk through the wall…

CHORUS:

And it’s so easy to-

put three chords together-

send your muse to a place you’ve never ever-

wanted to- but now it’s driving you,

to follow through-

you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do-

CHORUS 2:

With a heavy eye-

I see the screen-

take all of me,

oh my – oh

With a heavy eye-

I can see the screen-

take all of me

oh my machine-


Carefully and diplomatic-

Feel what you would like to free-

Soul retrieving’s automatic-

watch yourself like a T.V.

Glass illusions, burning sand,

it’s relative you understand

Narrow arches, criss and cross-

our hands are folded, then they’re tossed….

CHORUS :

And it’s so easy to-

put three chords together-

send your muse to a place you’ve never ever-

wanted to- but now it’s driving you,

to follow through-

you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do-


With a heavy eye-

I see the screen-

take all of me

oh my – oh

With a heavy eye-

I can see the screen-

take all of me

oh my machine

Subordinate to the machine-

Subordinate to the machine-

CHORUS:

And it’s so easy to-

put three chords together-

send your muse to a place you’ve never ever-

wanted to- but now it’s driving you,

to follow through-

you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do-

“WHISKEY + WINE”

Circles- I always used to run in circles-

until the day that I remembered that circles are made to be broken

and I found you-  x2

On the side of the road-

We were drifters that had drifted too far-

like a picture of a picture disappearing in the stars-

it had never been so clear-

the two of us right here, with all our worries to leave behind-

CHORUS:

You and me- whiskey and wine-

found me- broken and dirty-

You and me- steady on decline-

‘cause were running on empty x2

Circles- I always used to run in circles-

until the day that I remembered that circles are made to be broken

and I found you-

I remember the day-

you said “Baby, these eyes are losing touch”

you said “Baby, heavens heavy sky is just too much”

and I said hush now child-

we only got each other, and our worries to leave behind

CHORUS:

You and me- whiskey and wine-

You found me- broken and dirty-

You and me- steady on decline-

‘cause were running on empty

Stay right there, and stare-into-my-

vagabond eyes-

Gotta go-

Oh- gotta get out of here -on the next train out- x2

CHORUS:

You and me- whiskey and wine-

Found me- broken and dirty-

You and me- steady on decline-

‘cause we were running on empty- x2

“Mary, Mary”

Mary, mary, quite contrary-

Crimson red apothecary-

Spit with your head, so hard-to-believe-in

Always been such a beautiful demon

CHORUS:

Come on- I want it!

Come on- I need it-

Come on- I want it

so why won’t you give it to me x2

Mary, mary, quite contrary-

Crimson red apothecary-

Isn’t it fun, and isn’t scary-

to know inside you’re just- a fairy-

CHORUS:

Come on- I want it!

Come on- I need it-

Come on- I want it

so why won’t you give it to me………

(Sunshine- Moonshine- x2)

“Stringin’ Along”

like the spider crawling-

I’ve got to make my way-

just like the sky is falling-

I’m falling for today-

like a holy thistle

like a holy blade

free us from our nation

oh we are so afraid

Like the creature preying,

Been praying now for days-

Just like the land decaying -

they’ll light this town ablaze-

like a holy thistle

like a holy blade

free us from our nation

oh we are so afraid

CHORUS:

just stringing along

just stringing along

just stringing along-

You’ve got me x4

like a holy thistle

like a holy blade

free us from our nation

we are so afraid

CHORUS:

You’ve got me

just stringing along

just stringing along

just stringing along- x4

ooh got me stringing along-

ooh got me stringing along-

you just keep me stringing along…

Like the words unwritten from this song

CHORUS:

just stringing along

just stringing along

just stringing along- x4

HERETIC (The Fall)

Try so hard to hide the demon-

Drained of blood, and drained of semen-

Hangs the heavy head he dreams in-

hallucinations- they deceive him-

CHORUS:

Call me a heretic-

but I’ll teach you a thing or two about living x2

Marching forth into the danger-

Holy savior, such a stranger-

He is victim to the peril-

You know what they say- he’s just over a barrel

CHORUS:

Call me a heretic-

but I’ll teach you a thing or two about living x2
