You call me a coward When I object your war Condemn me for asking What it is we’re fighting for You call me a coward When I refuse to kill Solely for profit So you can get your high and thrill You call me a coward For questioning your lies Collateral damage Is no solace when children die You call me a coward But I don’t give a damn No smoke and mirrors Will ever make me wonder who I am Men will fight and men will die Many men will never know why They’ll come up with a million ways to justify But murder is murder in His eyes Men will fight and men will die Many men will never know why They’ll come up with a million ways to justify But murder is murder in His eyes You call me a coward For questioning your lies Collateral damage Is no solace when children die You call me a coward But I don’t give a damn No smoke and mirrors Will make me question where I stand You are the coward Behind your mighty force Calling us heroes Because we plow with no remorse You are the coward Within your hallowed halls With your executive orders For your belligerent sick cause

Hallowed heroes have hypocritical haloes At least so the story’s been told By victors with pens, devoid of all sins Till the romans returned seven-fold Of pharaohs and sparrows and white walled wheelbarrows I think I prefer oaken doors That open to find a prophet that’s blind Surrounded by six token whores Like a spider she spins a tale about the time when The lawyers had no one to rob An age long forgotten, like roses gone rotten Where teachers held the highest paid jobs And the tyrants were buying the slaves forced to pave The pyramids triangular miles And the people believed in a place that deceived Human hope as it hung by a rope And all the while no one saw That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion Was a vision contained in a vial Smiling sacred smiles And all the while no one saw That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion Was a vision contained in a vial Smiling sacred smiles As I glide down the face it begins to erase The place where sensation does thrive So I change the channel on the rage box’s panel And groove with a movie that kills Time like a rhyme but deep down inside The animal longs to run through the hills While the sun energizes my soul And I know where I go pure energy flows And all the while no one saw That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion Was a vision contained in a vial Smiling sacred smiles And all the while no one saw That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion Was a vision contained in a vial Smiling sacred smiles And all the while no one saw That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion Was a vision contained in a vial Smiling sacred smiles And all the while no one saw That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion Was a vision contained in a vial Smiling sacred smiles

I know this day will come your way Shake you hard and throw you off your rail I know it well because I’ve sailed This very ocean in my day The more you resist the more you will see It is only natal to want to break free The day you will seize like it’s a breeze And sore above and beyond the trees And when you look down with a grin or a frown The man on the ground won’t ever be found The more you resist the more you will see It is only natal to want to break free Your spirit is strong and you’re not afraid To take on the world and pull your own weight We’ll meet again so I can tell your tail Of how you prevailed cause you cared to dare The more you resist the more you will see It is only natal to want to break free Your spirit is strong and you’re not afraid To take on the world and pull your own weight The more you resist the more you will see It is only natal to want to break free Your spirit is strong and you’re not afraid To take on the world and pull your own weight The more you resist the more you will see The only way to be is when you’re free The more that you care the more you must dare It is the only way to seize the day

Reaching deep in my pocket of life I sense something is missing And as I kiss another, you know It is you that I am kissing I guess I lost your smile Somewhere along the way I guess I know now The things I shouldn’t say I fight for self-respect I fight for self-esteem I fight, I fight all night I fight for self-respect I fight for self esteem But it’s you my mind keep seeing I tried to find a girl That would match your fire But every one I found Only irks my ire But that was yesterday Today is so much brighter And if you doubt what I have to say Believe that I must fight her I fight for self-respect I fight for self-esteem I fight, I fight all night I fight for self-respect I fight for self-esteem But it’s you my mind keep seeing I fight for self-respect I fight for self-esteem I fight, I fight all night I fight for self-respect I fight for self-esteem But it’s you my mind keep seeing How could you choose another After all that we’ve weighed? The same old tragic story Of the prince the princess played I fight for self-respect I fight for self-esteem I fight, I fight all night I fight for self-respect I fight for self-esteem But it’s you my mind keep seeing I fight for self-respect I fight for self-esteem I fight, I fight all night I fight for self-respect I fight for self-esteem But it’s you my mind keep seeing

No matter what they say No matter what they preach I can smell the bullshit For miles along the beach Trespass, no pass Bold lies and purple prose Coin toss and overdose Meant to kill me fast Some say I am right Some say I am wrong What difference does it make If I go along No matter if I see No matter if I read There’s no room for wise men There’s no sense, indeed I see a burning house Every time I open my eyes I smell a burning house With chaos around as disguise I see a burning house Every time I open my eyes I smell a burning house With chaos around as disguise Some say I am wrong Some say I am are right What I wanna know is How He sleeps at night No matter how I feel No matter if a kneel Fire will engulf me As I faint and keel Some say I am right Some say I am are wrong What difference does it make If I go along No matter if I see No matter if I read There’s no room for wise men No sense, indeed I am a burning house Ready to fall and collide I am a burning house With fire raging inside I am a burning house Ready to fall and collide I am a burning house With fire raging inside

Carving on the wall My head is on the floor Crystal chandelier Sticking from the ground Paintings upside down Carpets all around Gravity's pulling me Up to the clouds Thinking makes me sick The coffee is too weak Words are twirling, Swirling, steering They give me the aches They colour my mind all the time In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ I haven't much to say I've nothing to declare I don't have a gun I am not aware Innocence I seek The one I lost behind Couldn't tell you where Or when, or why I just want it back I'll trade for what I've got I just want to care I don't want to stop Take me back in time When all was clear as a day light In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ I haven't much to say I've nothing to declare I don't have a gun I am not aware Innocence I seek The one I lost behind Couldn't tell you where Or when, or why I just want it back I'll trade for what I've got I just want to care I don't want to stop Take me back in time When all was clear as a day light In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ

When your blood starts pounding Inside your veins Come magic purple haze With sparks of red The birds start singing The sweetest tune Then you taste, you feel, you breathe The wonderful smack The wonderful smack When your lids get heavy And you think you’re dead Your entire room gets swallowed up Inside your bed Your mind starts chasing The dragon’s tail Then you wane, you fade, you drown Into the wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful smack Now you flirt with it And now you don’t Now you dance with it And now you don’t Now you sleep with it And now you don’t Now you run with it And now you don’t Now you fear it And now you don’t Now you fight it And now you don’t Now you hate it And now you don’t This wonderful smack This wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful… Now you flirt with it And now you don’t Now you dance with it And now you don’t Now you sleep with it And now you don’t Now you run with it And now you don’t Now you fear it And now you don’t Now you fight it And now you don’t Now you hate it And now you don’t This wonderful smack This wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful…

This thing is driving me mad And I don’t know how long I can take it My anger’s eating my mind I’m losing ground and I can’t contain it I fired up my all my rounds And now I’m out of ammunition I should have known from the start That to destroy me was your mission But did you stop and rethink As you were readying to let go of me Wishing that I would sink What if I kept the last bullet for you? I bet you’d do it again No second thought or hesitation Will ever test your disdain When you’re after your aspirations I should have known from the start Your only goal was your own agenda And you would still break my heart Even though I had surrendered But did you stop and rethink As you were readying to let go of me Wishing that I would sink What if I kept the last bullet for you? But did you stop and rethink As you were readying to let go of me Wishing that I would sink What if I kept the last bullet for you?

It’s time for you to understand You should have helped me when I bled You could have stretched your wizened hand It would have saved you too in the end It’s time for me to understand The past is gone and here we stand A wall between us thick and grand Two worlds apart, two different stances We are both to blame For dreams lost in vein We are both to blame For them to fade away Will come a day when we meet again With silly grins and tales to tell Remember when it all began If we could just resume from there We are both to blame For dreams lost in vein We are both to blame For them to fade away
