Never Look Back
Never Look Back
Welcome to the real world
Where things are true
And pain is real
Where people don't care and they don't feel
Where you hide yourself in your plastic shell
To cover yourself from this world of hell
Your defense has trapped you in a cell
Where can you go? What can you do?
How can you believe what is really true?
Don't depend on someone
Look within yourself
Look forward never look back
Don't live in the past
What you have now just won't last
Never let people get in your way
Always live for the next day
Little rebel on the street
Feel the hatred, feel the heat
Don't let anyone come to near
You can't feel that's your greates fear
Where do you go? How do you know?
Your scared.
Run far away.
Welcome to the real world
Where things are true
And pain is real
Where people don't care and they act cool
Where you hide yourself in your plastic shell
To cover yourself from this world of hell
They didn't teach you this in school...
Look forward never look back
Don't live in the past
It won't last
One Out Of The Crowd
You and I
We look the same
But you don't quite see
There is a part of me
That has yet to be tamed
A harsh part of me.

I'm out looking inside
You got a niche in your clique
When I think about it
It starts to make me sick
I'm out of the crowd
The way you act around them
It's just not the same
You can count me out
When you play your little games
I'm out of the crowd
Sometimes I want to get attention
Just like you
But we're not the same
So what can I do?
I'm out of the crowd
When I think about
the things that you've done
It really brings me down
Someday you'll come looking for me
and I won't be around
I'm out of the crowd





Like A Thing Gone Wild
My world
It's coming back
It's hard to walk
It's hard being black
Got to
Get away
I can't, I can't keep the pace
I'm a cat gone astray
Can't run the race
Haven't had a friend for awhile
And night after night I have cried
I'm so young and old
Treat me like a child
I'll break your chains
I'll break your bonds
Like a thing gone wild
Is it
Too much to ask?
And now I am denied
Turned down
I slip in the shadows make no sound
I'll watch and wait
And when he leaves
It will be great
Silent as wind I run
I've taken so much
It's time to have fun




Depressed Girl
Have you ever been
With someone thats depressed?
She's bringing me down
She's bringing me down with her
And you know that this is real
Is this what she really feels?
Is this real or an act?
Is there something that she lacks?
Just because you're a depressed girl
I'm not going to let you bring me down
Looking forward to sympathy
Taking it with efficiency
Is this real or an act?
Is there something that she lacks?
Looking forward to sympathy
Taking it with efficiency
But it's brining you down instead
Locking the depression inside of your head
You are bringing me down
Will you ever come around?
Now you tell me instead
You wish you were dead




No Defense
Wrap me up, stick to your guns
The war is over, there's no defense
Inside a box, dark with gloom
Six sides durround but there's no way out
Think what you can
be blinded by the lights
Remember... no defense qualifies you for death
With nothing to say, no way to act
Communication has fallen, will it ever come back?
Hate, love and friendship, it's all the same
Many ways in but one way out
There's no defense
The weapons are gone
No defense - what good will it do?
Defense is for the insecure
There's no good or bad
But when in doubt, remember
There's no defense
The bitter truth can scar
Explanations will bury the captives
In many times they will be set free again
It's the time in between the torture and chains
forgiveness is weak
You've been struck from behind
Please innocent in court but not in life
You are what I think, trust has slid away
Think what you like, waste your time
It doesn't matter, there's no defense
Thanks Alot
Thanks for being our friends
With you the games, the never end
We thought you really did
but you never did care
You took us fro granted
We would take you anywhere
But now your true colors really do show
Don't you know that we know right now?
You took a knife and you made a scar
But we all know who you are
We'd like to say thanks alot
It's more than we ever got
We hope you all feel real great
Say thanks now, and it's too late
You play your games expecting to win
You've played them to long
Our patience is wearing think
We tried to look past your problems
It didn't work
We thought you were deep
But you're no more than a flirt
Stay the fuck away don't even come near
Our reasons are all to clear
Tried to break us, tried to break us
It didn't work
We've lost respect, don't come near
We're standing clear
Thanks Alot
You And Me
Leave me alone - stay away!
I don't need your shit - liar!
Stay away - right!
You're wrong - wrong!
I don't want your apologies
I don't need your lies
It's no use trying to cover it
I can see it in your eyes
My real friends protect me
When my back is turned
I will protect them
But why haven't you learned?
It's just you and me
We will need friendship
to protect us from growing old
You laugh now but look what we could hold
You used to look at me like I was dirt
You didn't even care, but that kind of hurt
You lied to me at first
But I knew it from the start
Now you have to look for loyalty inside your heart
We don't know where death is
It could be around the bend
Just stick with me, kid, you don't have to pretend
I don't care about the past
It's what we have now
All you have to do is care
I'll show you how
Let It Be
She whispered words of wisdom, let it be
She came to me one night
All we did was fight
But it's not a question of who's wrong or right
Come to me, talk to me
All you ever do is let it be
But it's not a question of who's wrong or right
Look at me, what do you see
Probably some beggar on his knees
Bit I don't care about what you say... right
Talk all night, sleep all day
I don't give a shit about what you say
I'm going to pack my bags and leave right now




I Don't Know
All the nice and pretty things
Life ans work and all those things
People who say they're your friends
They turn around and screw you again
I'm through being nice
You fuck with me and you pay the price
HA HA HA HA
You're looking for something you can't find
Looking and searching in your mind
Always looking at someone else
Why don't you look at yourself?
Look at her, don't care
Look at me, FUCK YOU
What do you see, I don't know
What do you see, I don't know
Always tring to look through
Bitch at me that's all you do
A couple more words that's all it takes
How do you feel about being fake?
Running around, pressure in your lives
One of these days you're going to reach to high
You're going to fucking die
I'll laugh like I've never laughed before
HA HA HA HA
Rainy Black Day
My heart is cold and I will never change
You're just the same as the rest
My life was meant to be spent alone
Just stay away and keep fearing me
Do what is right for you because I would do
the same
Never forget to keep your distance - I hate
It will come like the rainy black day
Stay forever away
A pillar too strong to be moved by time
Is ageless and forever in my mind
Seek out what you want but do not hurt others
in the game
They system will weaken and will not be the same
And so you will be swept away with the rain
Forever crying, forever pain
Cry for me and give me strength
I know and see through the cold tasteless tears
You fear what I see but don't you worry
I see the same in everyone in the game
You are weak and I feed complacently
You're just the same as the rest
And so the timeless rain remains me, and I in it
What you seek is trapped deep inside your heart
But do you know yourself well enough to touch it?
You look into my eyes and cannot look away
Do you see your timeless secret?
I see fear, and I feed
Doggedly through time the rain persists
and you weaken
For I Am The Rain
The Way I Am
See me the way I am
What do you think of me now?
I go to parties to get ripped
You see me doing it and you get pissed
I can't decide which girl to pick
You see me doing it and you get pissed
That's the way I am
That's the way I am
What do you think of me now?
When you look at the outside of me
What do you think, what do you see?
You probably fucking hate me
But I don't care what you see because
That's the way I am
That's the way I am
What do you think of me now?
See me the way I was
I'm never going to change
I'm Your President
I'm your president I think you'll obey
You've been my slaves since election day
I do what I want, I'll do what I please
Want to ask for freedom? Down on your knees
I'll put your only son in an army green suit
Send him around the world
He'll get killed in Beirut
I'll march our boys to El Salvador
I can start the Third World War
I'm your president
I'm your president of the USA
I'm your presiden
I'm your president of the USA
Right now - U S OF A
right now - United States
I like the sights of peasants dying
I like to see starving babies crying
I'll organize a new Fourth Reich
Go where I want and I'll do what I like
I'm your president I think you'll obey
I wave the flag for the US OF A
I'm your president, I mean what I say
I wave the flage for the US OF A
