Momma don't you mind the mess I'm in
my guns on the table, my hands at my side
I'm not here to run, & you know I don't hide
I just wanted to come through and tell you goodbye
Momma don't you mind my life of sin
I won't spell out the trouble I'm in
Spare you the details, kiss you on the cheek
I'm sorry now, if for awhile we don't speak
but you always made me swear to come before I leave  
Momma don't you stare out past your steps
You have too good a heart to even guess  
the choices I made come with consequence
I may not be pure,...

Ride on, Fast Eddie; ride on,
 Just too tough to cry, when the game has let you down
You’re in the mood,
but,
You’re too ignorant to know when you’re licked,
Don’t know when to stop, behind or ahead,
Been the problem, all along,
Livin in another broken nightmare, tryin to reach out for a star
Don’t be too much in a hurry,
To get to these, pool halls of, smoke filled rooms,
Liquor & women a fast fix,
Just another young empty head,...

She comes over to my crib so we can chill like kids/but we drink straight vodka 'til we don't know what time it is/she can see that I'm both a hero and a villian/loves to light up even though we be straight spillin/liqour on the floor, then she just wants me to pour/ the next one on her chest, tells me she wants more/so I lick it up, yeah I know how to treat it/ like a warm apple pie, I get baked then I eat it/ I tell her this is a marathon, no need to put her make-up on, 'cause it's gonna be miles before we finish/ I'm talking about midnight until breakfast, frying up bacon with a shot of...

One day
This birdy will be flying out the nest
Looking after himself
And laughing at the rest
Usually the rest are laughing behind his back
Usually the punchline is a redundant crack
Usually he's feeling like a broken arrow
Come to face his fears
He's a hawk not a sparrow
Thirty-five

drop
Brains about to burst and pop
Pop and flop right on the ground
After he crashes he won't make sound
Unless he spreads those fucking wings
He'll chirp and strive to sing
Breaking all the limits...

Raze the woods and take in the fumes
Chanting some gospel shit while fucking with tombs
You never were one to leave well enough alone
Riding hard on some fairy tale
Drowning yourself in the high tides of fantasy
Poisoning yourself with some high hopes of change
Nothing works out in the end, just wait and see.
Nothing is going to happen, the past is gonna eat you and me
The ropes holding us up are gonna fray and rip at the seams, believe me
We're going to watch time catch up and sweep us off our feet
I beg you to quit what you're doing
You've got to...

It's 2 AM, and I'm thinking about death all over again
And it's been a long, cold winter the summer can't heal this sting
The dry spots lingering around my mouth mean nothing to me
Nothing is gonna happen with this.
Nothing can bring me back to the year I've missed
Pissing away into the wind like a drunkard on a binge.
Like a drunkard on a binge, I've felt the pain hit my heart,
It'll hit again and I won't be prepared for it
The seasons will keep changing
and the desert will take our thirst to a new level of desperation
Let the buzzards take me...

all knowing
all far off glitter
just ghosts of the spine

all sowing
tiny nightmare eye
goes oval and then brine

and i'm never coming back

all knowing
love clad caress
sucks the marrow from my body

all showing
bright yellow eye
drips the venom of god

(Sia singing "Another one bites the dust")
Steering wheel left behind
next to your propel water bottle
merge lane didn't do its purpose
didn't answer back my text
but in my dream, i heard it
"what happened that night?"
"This is the last peice, now my car is fixed"
"Will i see you again?"
shaking your head, i felt a helpless mist
(Sia singing "Another one bites the dust")
I should have never told you to come out
you would have tucked your daughter into bed
i know it wasn't my fault...

I came to the earth to stop the breaking seals.
But I never knew that I'd be the first angel to learn to feel.
You are a disgrace, you are filled with shame and rage.
But I'll tell the truth, it's because of you, I've fallen for your race.
I've fallen and I need some grace now.
I was an Angel of The Lord til' now.
I've fallen and I need some grace now.
I was and Angel of The Lord til' now.
I tried everyday, to convince you I was right.
But your stubborn heart, and your will to fight, have taken all my might.  
Now we are...

I hate feelings so I'm eliminating my kind heart,
Like how the mutual discriminates against pine tar,
Women instilling emotions don't deny my interest percentage upon the pi chart,
Children crated crippled visions like eye guards,
Whipping it with incisions you faggots are self implied stars,
Posing for respect hiding behind interests in fine arts,
Enterprise of a benign being who hides behind rhymes hard,
Cyanide for the mind of a proclaimed Einstein who lies within sky stars,
Courage of lions please pry me off of my grinds spark,
No Noah your behind...

The blade:
You ride hard and heavy, Your steps are quick and light
Your eyes always searchin, your gaze sees through the nite,
Like two jewels of starlight, you see darkness like the light,
Your kingdoms always protected like an outlaw on the run,
Your boots always wanderin as you seek shelter from your storms…

Your father he’s a gambler, rambler an a drunk
He taught you how you to see your future, and...

1866: War is over;
Farmer to a soldier,
Soldier to gambler and a thieve,
No honest work found here anymore, once trained so hard to kill;

From the East, Ridin out west,
Sunlight Silently falling upon my steel
Waiting to make my move, I make no sound;

On a hell bound train from nowhere
Lamentations of the Collected,
Mournful cry of the lone rider,
The bounty, tracked and bruised
Lost among the stains of...

If i stay
Would I open my eyes and see you
Feel the warmth of your touch against my face
And forget what I have lost
To that dreadful summer eve
When everything that belonged to me forever
Slipped out of my reach
And i walked that road all empty
Thinking I've got no where to be anymore
No shoulder to cry on
No hand to hold me
And carry me out of this excruciating pain
People who were home to me
Left me out in the pouring rain
I don't know if I should keep fighting
I don't know if I should stop the fight
And let it all sink...

Hey baby I'm a kountry Boy  
I spell it with a K cause that's how I roll  
I know my grammar just a little out of control  
Cause I talk a little slow  
But that don't mean I'm dumb as a old scare crow  
   
Hey got an old Jeep  
It's got a couple of holes in the seats  
I can come by and pick you up  
We can go to town and kick-up a fuss  
Go  down by the river with a six pack of bud  
Get A little crazy while we...

Find yourself inside a flower
you hear your song
The wind whistles through the pedals
you hum along.
Let the sunlight fall on you
it turns you on
The song is known to so few
your life goes on.
See the sun fade to none
you sing your song
hear the wind but now it's gone
you hum along.
But you can never see
never hear, you're wrong.
Just let it go, forget the song
and come along...
Find yourself up in the sky
you're up so high
next to the sun
Falling slowly
through the clouds,
you're...

I served my land  
I have toured the world  
Took great care of my kids  
Lord you know I have paid my dues  
 
I have lived my life  
I am ready to go out  
Just a word Lord man to Man if I may  
Before the next step this one wish I pray  
             
         "To tell her i love her,i love her i do."x2  
 
She has been the love of my life  
Still believes in me;Certainly there is nothing to salvage  
Feeds me with a spoon,combs my falling hair,change my diapers...  
Still she smile...

May 23rd was the last time that I saw her
the last we touched, & the last she heard me call her name
I remember how she ran down that hallway
I had no idea I'd never see her again
& while she's not missing, she's gone all the same
but no one knows where cause heaven is a guessing game
I still go out, & tell my stories to her bones
because talking to them makes me feel less alone
It's been seven years
& unlike a broken mirror
the curse still runs rampant here
It's been seven years
a forecast of tears
& you're...

You tore my world apart
And thought it won't be hard
For me to start all over again
And burn down the memories
Of you and me
I've been waiting since for the day
I will get up off from my knees
And step out of all the misery
But you should have known me better
Better than this
Every time that I am all by myself
Every time that I am without you
I break down and I feel so cold
Because all that makes me feel warm and at home
And all that I want is where you are
Why don't you come back now
We both know it's been far too long...

I'm feeling
HAUNTED
I'm feeling
USED
I'm feeling mentally broken
And ABUSED
I'm feeling
Like there's nothing left
To be said
All my blood is gone
For I have cut and bled
All of my knives
Lay on the bed seductively
All of the lies people say just
Fuck with me
I'm so tired
Why
Can't you see?
My wrists are
Bleeding and defeating
Any strength inside my veins
I feel like my emotions
Aren't emotions but just...

Desecration swing
An iron axe across the throat
Blood and bone splinter what remains
Prolonged ramifications
Censored, scarred soil
Over the shoulder is looming black
Graves centered and up front
A mocking revelation
Oh, heavy is your crown
To the gallows upon apocalypse himself
Stone foundations erected strong
There's no coming back
That colossal grip
Where war machines arise
And to the few that are still standing
Thank you for playing
Look at the congregation ...
