Strung Out

Another Day In Paradise


Population Control

I kneel to you when you preach to me, you're my god you're my T.V.
You control what I say, you control what I hear, control what I see
My whole existence revolves around this cable to my mind
It's thought parole, population control, it's slavery of mankind

Under their control!
Loving their control!

Don't question the forces that govern your miserable life
Don't seek out the answers that void your empty life
Cos this melancholy vision is just a brief episode in this game called reality
It's somethin' I've been trying so hard to figure out


Lost?

When I was young, America meant to me
Land of the beautiful and land of the free.
Now I look around and all I see
Are americans in poverty.

We're all lost without a trace
We can't keep up, can't find our place,
We're all lost without a clue
And our leaders never know what to do.

Taking things slow -- one step at a time,
Making sure we get left behind.
Dreams of success, well they're all gone.
This American way of life, I've been robbed!

We're all lost without a trace
We can't keep up, can't find our place
We're all lost without a clue
And our leaders never know what to do.


Drag Me Down

You gave in to your vice so quickly. Now I die alone among these people I don't know. And faces I've not seen -- Your masquerade it made me blind, well now I see what I must do. Don't know where I must go, to run from tonight.

We're gonna drag each other down
Again, gonna bring each other down.
Tonight.
We're gonna drag each other down
Again, gonna bring each other down.

To make believe made it alright, to turn our heads the other way made it seem like we could try to hide from all. And I'm sorry and I know this hole we dig for ourselves will bury everything we feel, then bury us tonight.

We're gonna drag each other down
Again, gonna bring each other down.
Tonight.
We're gonna drag each other down
Again, gonna bring each other down.

I cannot ignore, I cannot deny,
I cannot feel at all, I cannot hide.
Just another day, just another war,
Just another time I must kill another part of me.

We're gonna drag each other down
Again, gonna bring each other down.
When all hope is lost and not to be found
We'll find another ???
We're gonna drag each other down
Again, gonna bring each other down.


In Harm's Way

Your democracy has become a tattered vision of truth, corporate sponsorship, rapin' & ruling the land.
Do you think what you say will make it any better, it's been this way two hundred years, will stay this way forever.

You made promises of health care, still my teeth rot in my head.
You once seemed so concerned, now you left us all for dead.
The unemployed, the uninsured, the homeless in the street,
We're the ones that put you there, buddy you've got promises to keep.

We won't survive, this road to power led by all your kings.
It's time to wake up and take back what you have lost.
And when it all falls from this malady spread from within, like a pot of rose
It's happened once before, my friend, well here it comes again.

This state we've built is a sick reflection of all that we've become
We've closed our eyes, been fed these lies. Do you know what your country's done?
In the land of mad consumers free to spend at their own will,
We're losing sight of what it means to be a free America.

There's something wrong with me,
There's something wrong with all of this.
There's something wrong with you.
There's something wrong with me!

I cannot stand by, and watch them as they fuck up my life.

There's something wrong with you,
There's something wrong with all of this.
There's something wrong with me.
There's something wrong with you!

Believe these lies, they'll lead you to a path in harm's way!


Talking To Myself

Here I am today I seem so blown once again,
Wait for the people and things that ruin my day,
But there's a new way, as I take another hit,
I smoke another bong bowl it seems I'm pretty baked.

Talk about the things that no one ever wants to hear,
Talk about the things in life that seem so unclear,
But there's a new way, as I take another hit,
I smoke another bong bowl it seems I'm pretty baked.
I get a little bit more, inhale.... now I'm stoned.

Usually I'm too lost too, I could never hear the phone,
I just sit here think about these things all alone.
But there's a new way, as I take another hit,
I smoke another bong bowl it seems I'm pretty baked,
I get a little bit more, inhale... now I'm stoned.

Man my life is so boring just smoke... now I'm stoned.
So stoned.


Broken

The secret, kept safely hid in your mind,
Betrays you, when you look into my eyes.

Broken are the bonds that used to bind you & I.
Broken like a promise bred from your world of lies.
Broken are the dreams, the ones you let slip away.
Broken -- Broken -- Broken

Trust me -- Two words I've heard once before.
Shelter your eyes from all that is real.

Broken and distorted, your reality within,
Your fucked up little world's a shame of need and denial.
I can't stand by and let you lead me through this path
It's broke -- It's broken.

Noises -- the ones you hear in your mind.
They lead you away from something that's real

Broken are the bonds that used to bind you & I.
Broken like a promise bred from your world of lies.
Broken are the dreams, the ones you let slip away.
Broken -- Broken -- Broken.

Broken and distorted, your reality within,
Your fucked up little world's a shame of need and denial.
I can't stand by and let you lead me through this path
It's broke -- It's broken.


Ashes

There's a blood stain on the floor by the door where your whole world fell and died.
There's a silent chair in the corner of the room where you sat alone and cried.
Well she got something to say to you, but the words never mean a thing,
So she took that needle to her pain and set herself free.

Burn! Burn it to the ground. Burn!

When times got tough you got a little tougher then you slowly fell behind.
Running to catch the things you could not see, running to catch what you could not find.
Well I never wanted to need you, now it's time for you to see,
This forgotten pain that you tried to hide, buried in your apathy.

Burn! burn all to the ground.
Burn! Burn it to the ground.
Burn! Burn it to the ground.
Burn! You got burn it to the ground.


Faulter

Do you believe there's hope for your kind,
That your insatiable quest for direction will one day help you find
Veracity and meaning to your existence as a whole,
That all your dreams of happy endings will be achieved with faith and sometimes

Do you feel that cold wind blowin' you beyond all you think is right
Beyond all realm of human thought, beyond your foolish thinking,
One step ahead is one inch closer to the end, but means nothing at all, well sometimes.

Now watch your cities fall, now watch your god come down and deliver from all that you've built.
Your future's now a vision of your past soiled by all that you've killed.
Hush your children now, there's no need to cry, we're building a future for you.
We're building a future
We're building a future for you.
We're killing a future for you.
We're building a future for you.


Away

Underneath the moon in a place far away
I know a land where we can run away.
If you belive in me and you let me lead the way.
I take your pain, I'll wish it all away -- away. So far away.

I'll take you by the hand, tell you never to fear
In a world where we can be one so far away from here
We'll kiss the sky together, amoung the stars we will play
They'll never ever find us in our castle, so far away, away. So far away.

Underneath the moon in a place far away
I know a land where we can run away.
If you belive in me and you let me lead the way.
I take your pain, I'll wish it all away -- away. So far away.

Well I just can't seem to forget the places that I've been
Why don't you help me understand the things I really fear
When the words, they never come out right
And the things you say never mean a thing,
When you look me straight in the eye and say everything's alright.

Underneath the moon in a place far away
I know a land where we can run away.
If you belive in me and you let me lead the way.
I take your pain, I'll wish it all away -- away. So far away.


Alone

I'm alone -- But you point your finger and you laugh at me
And thank god -- That you are nowhere close to me
Because we're different -- And you try so hard to hate me
To go home -- I'm alone and I cannot stay.

What do you know about being alone
Has life ever had a suicidal tone,
No one wants to know me, for they slip me out
I'm outside looking in, I'm alone

Help me -- Two words I dont know how to say
I'm in pain -- But thats a message you can never convey,
Hear me -- And I've tried to make you understand
Without love -- Life'll kill the strongest man.

What do you know about being alone
Has life ever had a suicidal tone,
No one wants to know me, for they slip me out
I'm outside looking in, I'm alone

Think I'm under pressure while I'm here today
But we only know the right words to say
That has come and gone if they had only known
They couldnt go through life alone.

What do you know about being alone
Has life ever had a suicidal tone,
No one wants to know me, for they slip me out
I'm outside looking in, I'm alone

Think I'm under pressure while I'm here today
But we only know the right words to say
That has come and gone if they had only known
They couldnt go through life alone.


Unclean

Centuries of wasted blood, they stain this war-torn land
As our leaders look up to the sky and await their next command

Why -- must we die! Why must we die for their cause?

Terminations become the common way to cleanse the blood found unclean
In the eyes of Christ, in the eyes of man, in the grasp of a god unseen

Why -- must we die! Why must we die for their cause?

The sky has turned a crimson red as the dead lie everywhere.
There's Christians, and there's Catholics, then there's Muslims and there's Jews.
Fighting for the name of god, for the color of their hate
When will we ever learn before it's too late?

So tell me why we must die!
Why must we die for their god? Listen up!

They try, they try to drag you down, try and always will,
Try and try to pull you in, you must resists now!

Time slip away -- Centuries of wasted blood,
Time slip away -- Stain this war-torn land,
Time slip away -- And leaders look upon the sky

You finace your atrocities with lives of those you swore to protect, in order to achive strategic goals
How can your princes justify this misery set upon the land?
Watch them change the course of your history.
Watch them change the course of your history.


Mad Mad World

A friend is dead -- You look so hard but you can't find a cause
What does it mean? In one brief moment a life is lost
What does it mean? A life of hurtin, a life of chore,
What does it mean? When all we leave is just a memory.

It's a mad mad world
We're all doing time in a mad mad world,
We're all left behind in a mad mad world,
And all we leave is just a memory

I think about the things you said -- "Live each day like it was your last"
I think about your life -- And how it went by so fast
When you lose a friend it hurts so fuckin bad inside.
Especially when that friend commits suicide.

It's a mad mad world
We're all doing time in a mad mad world,
We're all left behind in a mad mad world,
And all we leave is just a memory

A friend is dead -- You can look so hard to try a find a cause
What does it mean? In one brief moment a life is lost
What does it mean? It's all I have -- It's all I have
And all I have is your memory

It's a mad mad world
We're all doing time in a mad mad world,
We're all left behind in a mad mad world.


14 Days

My day begins with a sigh as I slowly feel awake.
Then it's off to work thinkin how much shit I'll have to take
It's been two weeks since I've had a smile upon my face.
I miss the days when all I knew fits in it's place.

14 days -- I killed myself alone
14 days -- Tried so hard to understand
14 days -- I'll never forgive you

My world came crashing down as if I stood aside and watched
All the monsters in my head control everything I feel
I can see the door that traps me in this place
I can see my way outta here but I just can't find the key.

14 days -- I killed myself alone
14 days -- Tried so hard to understand
14 days -- I'll never forgive you

14 days -- My world turned upside-down
14 days -- Tried so hard to understand
14 days -- scaming into this space
