A Place For My Head

I watch how the Moon sits in the sky / in the dark night Shining with the light from the sun The sun doesn't give / light to the moon assuming The moon’s going to owe it one It makes me think of how you act to me / You do Favors and then rapidly / You just Turn around and start asking me / about Things you want back from me I’m sick of the tension / sick of the hunger Sick of you acting like I owe you this Find another place / to feed your greed While I find a place to rest I want to be in another place I hate when you say you don’t understand (You’ll see it's not meant to be) I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy A place for my head Maybe someday I’ll be just like you / and Step on people like you do and / Run Away the people I thought I knew I remember back then who you were You used to be calm / used to be strong Used to be generous / but you should’ve known / That you’d Wear out your welcome / now you see How quiet it is / all alone / I’m so Sick of the tension / sick of the hunger Sick of you acting like I owe you this Find another place / to feed your greed While / I find a place to rest / I’m so Sick of the tension / sick of the hunger Sick of you acting like I owe you this Find another place / to feed your greed While / I find a place to rest You try to take the best of me Go away

Breaking The Habbit
Memories concern

Like opening the wound I'm picking me apart again You all assume I'm safer in my room Unless I try to start again I don't want to be the one Who battles always choose Cuz inside I realize That I'm the one confused I don't know what's worth fighting for Or why I have to scream I don't know why I instigate And say what I don't mean I don't know how I got this way I know it's not alright So I'm breaking the habit I'm breaking the habit tonight Cultured my cure I tightly lock the door I try to catch my breath again I hurt much more Than anytime before I have no options left again I dont want to be the one Who battles always choose Cuz inside I realize That I'm the one confused I don't know what's worth fighting for Or why I have to scream I don't know why I instigate And say what I don't mean I don't know how I got this way I'll never be alright So, I'm breaking the habit I'm breaking the habit tonight

I'll paint it on the walls Cuz I'm the one that falls I'll never fight again and this is how it ends I don't know what's worth fighting for Or why I have to scream But now I have some clarity to show you what I mean I don't know how I got this way I'll never be alright So, I'm breaking the habit I'm breaking the habit Breaking the habit tonight

By Myself
What do I do to ignore them behind me? Do I follow my instincts blindly? Do I hide my pride / from these bad dreams And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening? Do I / sit here and try to stand it? Or do I / try to catch them red – handed? Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness, Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness? Because I can’t hold on / when I’m stretched so thin I make the right moves but I’m lost within I put on my daily façade but then I just end up getting hurt again By myself [myself] I ask why, but in my mind I find I can’t rely on myself chorus: I can’t hold on To what I want when I’m stretched so thin It’s all too much to take in I can’t hold on To anything watching everything spin With thoughts of failure sinking in If I Turn my back I’m defenseless And to go blindly seems senseless

If I hide my pride and let it all go on / then they’ll Take from me ‘till everything is gone If I let them go I’ll be outdone But if I try to catch them I’ll be outrun If I’m killed by the questions like a cancer Then I’ll be buried in the silence of the answer [by myself] How do you think / I’ve lost so much I’m so afraid / I’m out of touch How do you expect / I will know what to do When all I know / Is what you tell me to Don’t you know I can’t tell you how to make it go No matter what I do, how hard I try I can’t seem to convince myself why I’m stuck on the outside

Crawling
[chorus:] crawling in my skin these wounds they will not heal fear is how i fall confusing what is real there's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface consuming/confusing this lack of self-control i fear is never ending controlling/i can't seem [bridge:] to find myself again my walls are closing in (without a sense of confidence and i'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take) i've felt this way before so insecure [chorus] discomfort,endlessly has pulled itself upon me distracting/reacting

against my will i stand beside my own reflection it's haunting how i can't seem... [bridge] [chorus] [chorus]

Don`t Stay
Sometimes I need to remember just to breathe Sometimes I need you to stay away from me Sometimes I'm in disbelief, I didn't know Somehow I need you to go Don't stay Forget our memories Forget our possibilities What you were changing me into Just take myself back and Don't stay Forget our memories Forget our possibilities Take all your faithlessness with you Just take myself back and Don't stay Sometimes I feel like I trusted you too well Sometimes I just feel like strangling you myself Sometimes I'm in disbelief, I didn't know Somehow I need to be alone Don't stay Forget our memories Forget our possibilities What you were changing me into Just take myself back and Don't stay Forget our memories Forget our possibilities Take all your faithlessness with you

Just take myself back and Don't stay I don’t need you anymore, don’t want to be ignored I don’t need one more day, of you wasting me away I don’t need you anymore, I don’t want to be ignored I don’t need one more day, of you wasting me away With no apologies Don't stay Forget our memories Forget our possibilities What you were changing me into Just take myself back and Don't stay Forget our memories Forget our possibilities Take all your faithlessness with you Just take myself back and Don't stay Don't stay Don't stay

Easier To Run
[Chester] It’s easier to run Replacing this pain with something more It’s so much easier to go Than face all this pain here all alone Something has been taken from deep inside of me The secret I’ve kept locked away no one can ever see Wounds so deep they never show they never go away Like moving pictures in my head for years and years they’ve played [Mike] If I could change I would take back the pain I would Retrace every wrong move that I made I would If I could stand up and take the blame I would

If I could take all the shame to the grave I would If I could change I would take back the pain I would Retrace every wrong move that I made I would If I could stand up and take the blame I would I would take all my shame to the grave [Chester] It’s easier to run Replacing this pain with something more It’s so much easier to go Than face all this pain here all alone Sometimes I remember the darkness of my past Bringing back these memories I wish I didn’t have Sometimes I think of letting go and never looking back

Faint
I am a little bit of loneliness, a little bit of disregard Handful of complaints, but I can help the fact, that everybody can see these scars What I want you to want, what I want you to feel But it's like no matter what I do, I can't convince you, to just believe this is real So I let go, watching you, turn your back like you always do Face away and pretend that I'm not But I'll be here 'cause you want what I've got I can't feel the way I did before Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored Time won't heal this damage anymore Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored I am a little bit insecure, a little unconfident 'Cause you don't understand, I do what I can, but sometimes I don't make sense I say what you never wanna say, but I've never had a doubt It's like no matter what I do, I can't convince you, for once just to hear me out So I let go, watching you, turn your back like you always do

Face away and pretend that I'm not But I'll be here 'cause you want what I've got I can't feel the way I did before Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored Time won't heal this damage anymore Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored Now Hear me out now You're gonna listen to me, like it or not Right now Hear me out now You're gonna listen to me, like it or not Right now I can't feel the way I did before Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored I can't feel the way I did before Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored Time won't heal this damage anymore Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored I can't feel I won't be ignored Time won't heal Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored

Forgotten
From the top to the bottom Bottom to top I stop At the core I’ve forgotten In the middle of my thoughts Taken far from my safety

The picture is there The memory won’t escape me But why should I care [Chorus x2] There’s a place so dark you can’t see the end Skies cock back and shock that which can’t defend The rain then sends dripping / acidic question Forcefully, the power of suggestion Then with the eyes shut / looking thought the rust and rot And dust / a small spot of light floods the floor And pours over the rusted world of pretend The eyes ease open and its dark again [Chorus x1] In the memory you’ll find me Eyes burning up The darkness holding me tightly Until the sun rises up Moving all around / screaming of the ups and downs Pollution manifested in perpetual sound The wheels go round and the sunset creeps behind Street lamps, chain-link and concrete A little piece of paper with a picture drawn floats On down the street till the wind is gone The memory now is like the picture was then When the paper’s crumpled up it can’t be perfect again [Chorus x2] In the memory you’ll find me Eyes burning up The darkness holding me tightly Until the sun rises up Now you got me caught in the act You bring the thought back I’m telling you that I see it right through you

[x7] In the memory you’ll find me Eyes burning up The darkness holding me tightly Until the sun rises up [x2]

From The Inside
I don’t know who to trust, your surprise Everything feel so far away from me Have your thoughts sent through dust, and the lies Trying not to break, but I’m so tired of this to see Every time I try to make myself get back up on my feet All I ever think about is this, all the time and time between And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so much out of me Take everything from the inside And throw it all away ‘Cause I swear for the last time I won’t trust myself with you Tension is building inside, steadily You feel so far away from me Have your thoughts forcing their way out of me Trying not to break, but I’m so tired of this deceit Every time I try to make myself get back up on my feet All I ever think about is this, all the time and time between And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so much out of me Take everything from the inside And throw it all away Cause I swear for the last time I won’t trust myself with you I won’t waste myself on you!!! You!!! You!!! Waste myself on you!!! You!!! You!!!

I’ll take everything from the inside And throw it all away ‘Cause I swear for the last time I won’t trust myself with you Everything from the inside And throw it all away ‘Cause I swear for the last time I won’t trust myself with you You You You

In The End
(It starts with) One thing / I don’t know why It doesn’t even matter how hard you try Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme To explain in due time All I know time is a valuable thing Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings Watch it count down to the end of the day The clock ticks life away It’s so unreal Didn’t look out below Watch the time go right out the window Trying to hold on / but didn’t even know Wasted it all just to Watch you go I kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all fell apart What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I tried so hard And got so far But in the end It doesn't even matter I had to fall To lose it all But in the end It doesn't even matter

One thing / I don’t know why It doesn’t even matter how hard you try Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme To remind myself how I tried so hard In spite of the way you were mocking me Acting like I was part of your property Remembering all the times you fought with me I’m surprised it got so (far) Things aren’t the way they were before You wouldn’t even recognize me anymore Not that you knew me back then But it all comes back to me In the end You kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all fell apart What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I I tried so hard And got so far But in the end It doesn’t even matter I had to fall To lose it all But in the end It doesn’t even matter I've put my trust in you Pushed as far as I can go And for all this There’s only one thing you should know I've put my trust in you Pushed as far as I can go And for all this There’s only one thing you should know I tried so hard And got so far But in the end It doesn’t even matter I had to fall To lose it all But in the end It doesn’t even matter

Lying From You
When I pretend, everything is what I want it be, I looked exactly like what you always wanted to see When I pretend, I can’t forget about the criminal I am Stealing second after second just cause I know I can, but I can’t pretend that this is they way it will stay, I’m just (Lying to defend the truth) I can’t pretend of who you want me to be so (I’m lying my way from) You (Nah, no turning back now) I wanna be close beside so let me go (Nah, no turning back now) Let me take me back my life I’d rather be all alone (No turning back now) And anywhere on my own, cause I can see (Nah, no turning back now) ’Cause everyone’s lying from you WITH ME I remember what they taught to me, Remember condescending took for what I ought to be Remember fussing and all of that and this again so I could turned it up to the person who was feeling it And now you think this person really is me and I (Trying to defend the truth ) yo, the more I push I’m pulling away cause I’m (Lying my way from) You (Nah, no turning back now) I wanna be close beside so let me go (Nah, no turning back now) Let me take me back my life I’d rather be all alone (No turning back now) And anywhere on my own, cause I can see (Nah, no turning back now)

’Cause everyone’s lying from you WITH ME This isn’t what I wanted you running from me LIKE THIS! This isn’t what I wanted you running from me LIKE THIS! This isn’t what I wanted you running from me LIKE THIS! This isn’t what I wanted you running from me LIKE THIS! to be, I never thought what I said would have

You (Nah, no turning back now) I wanna be close beside so let me go (Nah, no turning back now) Let me take me back my life I’d rather be all alone (No turning back now) And anywhere on my own, cause I can see (Nah, no turning back now) ’Cause everyone’s lying from you WITH ME

My December
This is my December This is my time of the year This is my December This is all so clear This is my December This is my snow covered home This is my December This is me alone And I Just wish that I didn't feel

Like there was Something I missed And I Take back all The things I said To make you Feel like that And I Just wish that I didn't feel Like there was Something I missed And I Take back all the Things I said to you And I give it all away Just to have somewhere To go to Give it all away To have someone To come home to This is my December These are my snow covered dreams This is me pretending This is all I need And I Just wish that I didn't feel Like there was Something I missed And I Take back all The things I said To make you feel like that And I Just wish that I didn't feel Like there was

Something I missed And I Take back all the things I said to you And I give it all away Just to have Somewhere to go to Give it all away To have someone To come home to This is my December This is my time of the year This is my December This is all so clear And I give it all away Just to have somewhere To go to Give it all away To have someone To come home to

Numb
I'm tired of being what you want me to be feeling so faithless lost under the surface I don't know what you're expecting of me put under the pressure of walking in your shoes [caught in the undertow / just caught in the undertow] every step that I take is another mistake to you I've become so numb I can't feel you there become so tired so much more aware I'm becoming this all I want to do

is be more like me and be less like you can't you see that you're smothering me holding too tightly afraid to lose control cause everything that you thought I would be has fallen apart right in front of you [caught in the undertow / just caught in the undertow] every step that I take is another mistake to you [caught in the undertow / just caught in the undertow] and every second I waste is more than I can take but I know I may end up failing too but I know you were just like me with someone disappointed in you

One Step Closer
I cannot take this anymore I'm saying everything I've said before All these words they make no sense I find bliss in ignorance Less I hear the less you'll say But you'll find that out anyway Just like before... Everything you say to me Takes me one step closer to the edge And I'm about to break I need a little room to breathe Cause I'm one step closer to the edge And I'm about to break I find the answers aren't so clear Wish I could find a way to disappear All these thoughts they make no sense I find bliss in ignorance Nothing seems to go away Over and over again shut up when I'm talking to you

Papercut

Why does it feel like night today? Something in here’s not right today… Why am I so uptight today? Paranoia’s all I got left I don’t know what stressed me first Or how the pressure was fed / but I know just what it feels like To have a voice in the back of my head It’s like a face that I hold inside A face that awakes when I close my eyes A face watches every time I lie A face that laughs every time I fall (And watches everything) So I know that when it’s time to sink or swim That the face inside is hearing me / right beneath my skin It’s like I’m / paranoid lookin’ over my back It’s like a / whirlwind inside of my head It’s like I / can’t stop what I’m hearing within It’s like the face inside is right beneath my skin I know I’ve got a face in me points out all the mistakes to me You’ve got a face on the inside too and Your paranoia’s probably worse I don’t know what set me off first but I know what I can’t stand Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is I can’t add up to what you can but Everybody has a face that they hold inside A face that awakes when they close their eyes A face watches every time they lie A face that laughs every time they fall (And watches everything) So you know that when it’s time to sink or swim That the face inside is watching you too / right inside your skin The sun goes down I feel the light betray me

Point Of Authority
Forfeit the game Before somebody else Takes you out of the frame Puts your name to shame

Cover up your face You can't run the race The pace is too fast You just won't last You love the way i look at you While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through You take away if i give in My life My pride is broken [Chorus:] You like to think you're never wrong (You live what you learn) You have to act like you're someone (You live what you learn) You want someone to hurt like you (You live what you learn) You want to share what you have been through (You live what you learn) You love the things i say i'll do The way i'll hurt myself again just get back at you You take away when I give in My life My pride is broken [Chorus] [repeat again the song]

Pushing Me Away
I've lied to you The same way that I always do This is the last smile That I'll fake for the sake of being with you (Everything falls apart Even the people who never frown Eventually break down) The sacrifice of hiding in a lie

(Everything has to end You'll soon find we're out of time left To watch it all unwind) The sacrifice is never knowing Why I never walked away Why I played myself this way Now I see your testing me pushes me away Why I never walked away Why I played myself this way Now I see your testing me pushes me away I've tried like you To do everything you wanted too This is the last time I'll take the blame for the sake of being with you (Everything falls apart Even the people who never frown Eventually break down) The sacrifice of hiding in a lie (Everything has to end You'll soon find we're out of time left To watch it all unwind) The sacrifice is never knowing Why I never walked away Why I played myself this way Now I see your testing me pushes me away Why I never walked away Why I played myself this way Now I see your testing me pushes me away (We're all out of time This is how we find how it all unwinds) The sacrifice of hiding in a lie (We're all out of time This is how we find how it all unwinds) The sacrifice is never knowing Why I never walked away Why I played myself this way Now I see your testing me pushes me away

Why I never walked away Why I played myself this way Now I see your testing me pushes me away Pushes me away

Runaway
Graffiti decorations Under a sky of dust A constant wave of tension On top of broken trust The lessons that you taught me I learn were never true Now I find myself in question (They point the finger at me again) Guilty by association (You point the finger at me again) I wanna run away Never say goodbye I wanna know the truth Instead of wondering why I wanna know the answers No more lies I wanna shut the door And open up my mind Paper bags and angry voices Under a sky of dust Another wave of tension Has more than filled me up All my talk of taking action These words were never true Now I find myself in question (They point the finger at me again) Guilty by association (You point the finger at me again) I wanna run away Never say goodbye I wanna know the truth Instead of wondering why I wanna know the answers No more lies I wanna shut the door And open up my mind i'm gonna run away and never say goodbye

(gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away) i'm gonna run away and never wonder why (gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away) i'm gonna run away and open my mind (gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away) I wanna run away Never say goodbye I wanna know the truth Instead of wondering why I wanna know the answers No more lies I wanna shut the door And open up my mind i wanna run away and open up my mind i wanna run away and open up my mind i wanna run away and open up my mind i wanna run away and open up my mind

Some Where I Belong
(When this began) I had nothing to say And I'd get lost in the nothingness inside of me (I was confused) And I let it all out to find That I’m not the only person with these things in mind (Inside of me) But all the vacancy the words revealed Is the only real thing that I’ve got left to feel (Nothing to lose) Just stuck, hollow and alone And the fault is my own And the fault is my own I wanna heal I wanna feel what I thought was never real I want to let go of the pain I’ve held so long (Erase all the pain 'til it’s gone)

I wanna heal I wanna feel like I’m close to something real I want to find something I’ve wanted all along Somewhere I belong And I’ve got nothing to say I can’t believe I didn’t fall right down on my face (I was confused) Looking everywhere only to find That it’s not the way I had imagined it all in my mind (So what am I) What do I have but negativity ’Cause I can’t justify the way, everyone is looking at me (Nothing to lose) Nothing to gain, hollow and alone And the fault is my own And the fault is my own I wanna heal I wanna feel what I thought was never real I want to let go of the pain I’ve held so long (Erase all the pain 'til it’s gone) I wanna heal I wanna feel like I’m close to something real I want to find something I’ve wanted all along Somewhere I belong I will never know myself until I do this on my own And I will never feel anything else until my wounds are healed I will never be anything 'til I break away from me And I will break away I'll find myself today I wanna heal I wanna feel what I thought was never real I want to let go of the pain I’ve held so long (Erase all the pain 'til it’s gone)

I wanna heal I wanna feel like I’m close to something real I want to find something I’ve wanted all along Somewhere I belong I wanna heal I wanna feel like I’m somewhere I belong I wanna heal I wanna feel like I’m somewhere I belong Somewhere I belong
