All the Love in the World
You Know What You Are?
The Collector
The Hand that Feeds
Love is not Enough
Every Day is Exactly the Same
With Teeth
Only
Getting Smaller
Sunspots
The Line Begins to Blur
Beside you in Time
Right Where it Belongs

The Life you Didn't Lead (bonus track)
Message to No-one (bonus track)

All the Love in the World


Watching all the insects march along
Seem to know just right where they belong
Smears of face reflecting in the chrome
Hiding in the crowd I'm all alone

No one's heard a single word I've said
They don't sound as good outside my head
Looks as though the past is here to stay
I've become a million miles away

Why do you get all the love in the world?

All the jagged edges disappear
Colors all look brighter when you're near
All the stars afire in the sky
Sometimes I get so lonely I could...

Why do you get all the love in the world?

Why am I always watching from the outside?
On the other side of the glass behind glass
Always watching everyone seperate
Watching always don't touch this is getting deeper
As time goes by the water's getting colder
Here I am surrounded by people but still all alone
Even with myself imprisoned in my head
And there doesn't seem to be any way to get out
And I am so fucking sick of here wish I was there
Right beside is still a million miles away
Behind these bars in a rut anyplace will do

Hello? Didn't think so
Broadcasting only static coming in
No one can hear me when I'm in here

You Know What You Are?


I tried to sneak myself through
I tried to get to the other side
I tried to patch up the cracks and the holes that I have to hide
For a little bit of time even made it work okay
Just long enough to really make it hurt
When they figured me out and it all just rotted away

Don't you fucking know what you are?

Go on get back to where you belong

You better take a good look because I'm full of shit
With every bit of my heart I have tried to believe in it
You can dress it all up you can try to pretend
But you can't change anything
You can't change anything in the end

Don't you fucking know what you are?

Go on get back to where you belong

Remember where you came from
Remember what you are

Not one of them you belong with

You're only fooling yourself
Go on get back to where you belong
You are not one of them
You belong with us you're only fooling yourself
Come back where you belong back

To nowhere back to nothing
Back to that lonely place inside your head
Come back to where you belong
You're so fucking stupid and pathetic
What you're trying to do
We will never let you go
That was a lie you must have wanted to believe
You didn't really believe that did you?
Well it runs too deep it runs too deep my friend
Better start to look at things through different eyes

Don't you know fucking know what you are?

Go on get back get back get back to where you belong

The Collector


I pick things up
I am a collector
And things, well things
They tend to accumulate
I have this net
It drags behind me
And it picks up feelings
For me to feed upon

There are times, plenty of times
I wish I could let it go
But they start to breathe
And they start to grow inside me

There are times, plenty of times
I wish I could let it go
But they start to make me think
things I don't want to know

I'm trying to fit it all inside
I'm trying to open my mouth wide
I'm trying not to choke and swallow it all
Swallow it all, swallow it all, swallow it all

I am the plague
I am the swarm
All you hurt sticks on me
And I keep it warm
They make me stay
They won't let me leave
There are so God damned many of them
It gets hard to breathe
I'm trying to fit it all inside
I'm trying to open my mouth wide
I'm trying not to choke inside
I am a good boy and I will swallow it all
Swallow it all, swallow it all, swallow it all

Every last one, every last one
Every last one, every last one

Are You listening?

Yes I am building something bigger than the world

Something terrible with all of this

The Hand that Feeds


You're keeping in step
In the line
Got your chin held high and you feel just fine
Because you do
What you're told
But inside your heart it is black and it's hollow and it's cold

Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you want to change it?

What if this whole crusade's
A charade
And behind it all there's a price to be paid
For the blood
On which we dine
Justified in the name of the holy and the divine

Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you want to change it?

So naive
I keep holding on to what I want to believe
I can see
But I keep holding on and on and on and on

Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees? (repeats 8 times)

Love is Not Enough


The more that we take, the paler we get
I can't remember what it is, we try to forget
The tile on the floor, so cold it can sting
In your eyes is a place, worth remembering
For you to go and take this, to smash it apart
I've gone all this fucking way
To wind up, wind up, back at the start

Hey the closer we think we are
Well it only got us so far
Now you got anything left to show
No, no, I didn't think so
Hey, the sooner we realize
We cover ourselves with lies
But underneath we're not so tough
And love is not enough

It hides in the dark
Like the withering vein
We didn't give it a mouth
So it cannot complain
It never really had a chance
We'd never really make it through
And to think I believed
Believed I could get better with you

Hey the closer we think we are
Well it only got us so far
Now you got anything left to show?
No, no, I didn't think so
Hey, the sooner we realize
We cover ourselves with lies
But underneath we're not so tough
And love is not enough

Left for dead, and all used up

back to the top


Every Day is Exactly the Same


I believe I can see the future
Because I repeat the same routine
I think I used to have a purpose
And then again that might have been a dream
I think I used to have a voice
Now I never make a sound
I just do what I've been told
I really don't want them to come around, oh no

Every day is exactly the same
Every day is exactly the same
There is no love here and there is no pain
Every day is exactly the same

I can feel their eyes are watching
In case I lose myself again
Sometimes I think I'm happy here
Sometimes I still pretend
I can't remember how this all got started
But I can tell you - exactly - how it will end

Every day is exactly the same
Every day is exactly the same
There is no love here and there is no pain
Every day is exactly the same

I'm writing on a little piece of paper
I'm hoping someday you might find
I'll hide it behind something
They don't look behind
I am still inside here
A little bit comes bleeding through
I wish this could have been any other way
I just don't know what else I can do

Every day is exactly the same
Every day is exactly the same
There is no love here and there is no pain
Every day is exactly the same

And I've rehearsed my lines
And I know what's coming next

With Teeth


She comes along, she gets inside
She makes you better than anything you've tried
It's in her kiss, the blackest sea
And it runs deeper than you dare to dream it could be

With teeth
She's holding on
With teeth

Wave goodbye, to what you were
The rules have changed, the lines begin to blur
She makes you hard, it comes on strong
You've finally found, the place where you belong

With teeth

I can not go through this again

With teeth
She is the greatest lie of all

She will not let you go, keeps holding on
This time I'm not coming back

back to the top


Only


I'm becoming less defined as days go by
Fading away (you might say) I'm losing focus
Kind of drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself
Sometimes I think I can see right through myself

Less concerned about fitting in to the world
Your world that is, because it doesn't really matter anymore
None of this really matters anymore

Yes I am alone, but then again I always was, as far back as I can tell
I think maybe it's because, because you were never real to begin with
I just made you up to hurt myself, and it worked. Yes it did

There is no you, there is only me
There is no fucking you, there is only me, only

Well the tiniest little dot caught my eye
And it turned out to be a scab
And I had this funny feeling
Like I just knew it's something bad
I just couldn't leave alone

And I kept picking at that scab
Like it was a doorway trying to seal itself shut
But I climbed through

And now I'm somewhere I am not supposed to be
And I can see things I know I really shouldn't see
Now I know why and now I know why
Things aren't as pretty on the inside

There is no fucking you, there is only me, only

Is this really all there is?
Is this really all there is?

Getting Smaller


Getting a little erratic here
And I don't know who to trust
I guess they got a way of reading my mind
I guess I got to adjust
I got my arms that flip flop flip flop flip
I got my head on a spring
Well I thought I got you on my side
I haven't got fucking anything

I'm just a face in the crowd
Nothing to worry about
Not even trying to stand out

I'm getting smaller and smaller and smaller
And I have nothing to say
It's all been taken away
I just behave and obey
I'm afraid I am starting to fade away

Can kind of see out the cracks
When I press up to the wall
I'm not looking to stand up real high
I'd be happy to crawl
I think I'm losing my grip
But I can still make a fist
You know I still got my one good arm
That I can beat, I can beat myself up with

I'm just a face in the crowd
Nothing to worry about
Not even trying to stand out
I'm getting smaller and smaller and smaller
And I have nothing to say
It's all been taken away
I just behave and obey
I'm afraid I am starting to fade away

Hey and for what it is worth
I really used to believe
That maybe there's some great thing
That we could achieve
And now I can't tell the difference
Or know what to feel
Between what I've been trying so hard to see
And what appears to be real

My world is getting smaller every day
Hey hey hey hey
And that's ok

Sunspots


Sunspots cast a glare in my eyes
Sometimes I forget I'm alive

I feel it coming and I've got to get out of it's way
I hear it calling and I come cause I can't disobey
I should not listen and I shouldn't believe but I do, yes I do

She turns me on, she makes it real
I have to apologize, for the way I feel

My life it seems has taken a turn
Why in the name of God would I ever want to return?

Peel off our skin we're gonna burn what we were to the ground
Fuck in the fire and we'll spread all the ashes around
I want to kill away the rest of what's left and I do, yes I do

She turns me on, she makes it real
I have to apologize, for the way I feel
And nothing can stop me now
And there is nothing to fear
And everything I'd ever want
Is inside of here

Now I just stare into the sun
And I see everything I've done
I think I could have been someone
But I can't stop stuff has begun
When everything is said and done
And there is no place left to run
I think I used to be someone
Now I just stare into the sun

back to the top


The Line Begins to Blur


There are things that I said I would never do
There are fears that I can not believe have come true
For my soul is too sick and too little and too late
And myself I have grown too weary to hate

The more I stay in here
The more it's not so clear
The more I stay in here
The more I disappear
As far as I have gone
I knew what side I'm on
But now I'm not so sure
The line begins to blur

Is there somebody on top of me?
I don't know, I don't know
Isn't anybody stopping me?
I don't know, I don't know
Well I'm trying to hold my breath
I don't know, I don't know
Just how far down can I go?
I don't know, I don't know

As I lie here and stare
The fabric starts to tear
It's far beyond repair
And I don't really care
As far as I have gone
I knew what side I'm on
But now I'm not so sure
The line begins to blur

back to the top


Beside you in Time


I am all alone this time around
Sometimes on the sides I hear a sound
Places parallel I know it's you
Feel the little pieces bleeding through

This goes on, and on, and on

Now that I've decided not to stay
I can feel me start to fade away
Everything is back where it belongs
I will be beside you before long

This goes on, and on, and on

We will never die, beside you in time

back to the top


Right Where it Belongs


See the animal in his cage that you built
Are you sure what side you're on?
Better not look him too closely in the eye
Are you sure what side of the glass you are on?

See the safety of the life you have built
Everything where it belongs
Feel the hollowness inside of your heart
And it's all right where it belongs

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems
What if all the world you think know
Is an elaborate dream?

And if you look at your reflection
Is that all you want it to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks
would you find yourself - find yourself afraid to see?

What if all the world's inside of your head
Just creations of your own?
Your devils and your gods all the living and the dead
And you're really all alone?

You can live in this illusion
You can choose to believe
You keep looking but you can't find the woods
While you're hiding in the trees

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems
What if all the world you used to know
Is an elaborate dream?

And if you look at your reflection
Is that all you want to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks
Would you find yourself - find yourself afraid to see?

Home


Everything is catching up with me
I awake to find Iím not all where I should be
And it feels Iím getting to the end
And itís hard to figure out whatís real and whatís pretend

To break from what weíre tied to
God knows how much Iíve tried to
And I am still inside you
I escape every now and then

And to think I find myself back here again and again
I used to know who I was until you came along
I return to the only place Iíve ever felt that I belong

To break from what weíre tied to
God knows how much Iíve tried to
And I am still inside you

The Life you Didn't Lead


Home
Returning from somewhere
To someplace safe
And for once as you watch
The color of the sunset
As it paints the walls

And you are not living in a memory
You are vital and alive
You are at peace
You are godlike
And you are safe

And that moment will last
In a place in your mind
And there is no pain
And you forget what it feels like
And you can see
How it could be

Message to No-one


Message to no one in particular
And guess what?
Nobody loves you
Nobody cares
I was sent here to give you this message

Oh, thatís right Ė youíre different
Different than the rest

I forgot
I forgot

Well fuck you
And fuck fitting in to your scene
Fuck what you think

Oh yeah?

Well Iím the king of the world
The world that Iím destroying
Big chunks at a time
I am the destroyer of worlds

You watch and see
You watch and see
