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 underneath 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 my 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 I close my 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

Chorus

The face inside is right beneath your skin (3x)

The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me (Repeat until end)

Chorus (Repeat until end)

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

With You

I woke up in a dream today
To the cold of the static / and put my cold feet on the floor
Forgot all about yesterday
Remembering Im pretending to be where Im not anymore
A little taste of hypocrisy
And Im left in the wake of the mistake / slow to react
Even though youre so close to me
Youre still so distant / And I cant bring you back
Its true / the way I feel
Was promised by your face
The sound of your voice
Painted on my memories
Even if youre not with me
Im with you
You / Now I see/ keeping everything inside
You / Now I see / Even when I close my eyes
I hit you and you hit me back
We fall to the floor / the rest of the day stands still
Fine line between this and that
When things go wrong I pretend the past isnt real
Now I'm trapped in this memory
And Im left in the wake of the mistake / slow to react
Even though youre close to me
Youre still so distant / And I cant bring you back
no
No matter how far we've come
I can't wait to see tomorrow
With you

Points of Authority

Forfeit the game / Before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame / Puts your name to shame
Cover up your face / You cant run the race
The pace is too fast / You just cant 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

You love the things I say Ill do-
The way Ill hurt myself again just to get back at you
You take away when I give in / my life
My pride is broken

You like to think youre never wrong
You want to act like youre someone
You want someone to hurt like you
You want to share what youve been through
(You live what you learn)

Crawling

Crawling in my skin
These wounds / they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Theres something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming / confusing
This lack of self control I fear is never ending
Controlling / I cant seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
[Without a sense of confidence / Im convinced
there's just too much pressure to take]
Ive felt this way before
So insecure

Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me
Distracting / reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
Its haunting how I cant seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
[Without a sense of confidence / Im convinced
there's just too much pressure to take]
Ive felt this way before
So insecure...

Runaway

Graffiti decorations
Underneath 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

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

Gonna run away...

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 cant hold on / when Im stretched so thin
I make the right moves but Im lost within
I put on my daily facade but then
I just end up getting hurt again
By myself [myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I cant rely on myself

I cant hold on
To what I want when Im stretched so thin
Its all too much to take in
I cant hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I
Turn my back Im defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on / then theyll
Take from me till everything is gone
If I let them go Ill be outdone
But if I try to catch them Ill be outrun
If Im killed by the questions like a cancer
Then Ill be buried in the silence of the answer
[by myself]

How do you think / Ive lost so much
Im so afraid / Im out of touch
How do you expect / I will know what to do
When all I know / Is what you tell me to
Dont you know
I cant tell you how to make it go
No matter what I do, how hard I try
I cant seem to convince myself why
Im stuck on the outside

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

Chorus

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 (2x)

Chorus

A Place for My Head

I watch how the moon sits in the sky
On a 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

Pre chorus:
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

Pre chorus (2x)
Chorus

You try to take the best of me
Go away (8x)

Chorus

Pre chorus (2x)

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 (2x)

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 questions
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then with the eyes tightly shut looking thought the rust and rotten
dust
A spot of light floods the floor
And pours over the rusted world of pretend
The eyes ease open and its dark again

Chorus

Bridge:
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 past the
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
Bridge

Now you got me caught in the act
You bring the thought back
I'm telling you that
I see it right through you (7x)

Bridge (2x)

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

Pre chorus:
(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

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

Pre chorus
Chorus (2x)

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

Chorus (2x)

Pushes me away(2x)

Don't Stay

Sometimes I
Need to remember just to breathe
Sometimes I
Need you to stay away from me
Sometimes Im
In disbelief I didnt know
Somehow I
Need you to go

Dont stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
What you were changing me into
[Just give me myself back and]
Dont stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
Take all your faithlessness with you
[Just give me myself back and]
Dont stay

Sometimes I
Feel like I trusted you too well
Sometimes I
Just feel like screaming at myself
Sometimes Im
In disbelief I didnt know
Somehow I
Need to be alone

Dont stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
What you were changing me into
[Just give me myself back and]
Dont stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
Take all your faithlessness with you
[Just give me myself back and]
Dont stay

I dont need you anymore
I dont want to be ignored
I dont need one more day
Of you wasting me away

I dont need you anymore
I dont want to be ignored
I dont need one more day
Of you wasting me away
With no apologies

Dont stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
What you were changing me into
[Just give me myself back and]
Dont stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
Take all your faithlessness with you
[Just give me myself back and]
Dont stay
Dont stay
Dont stay

Somewhere I Belong

When this began
I had nothing to say
And Id get lost in the nothingness inside of me
I was confused
And I let it all out to find /that Im
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 Ive 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 want to heal
I want to feel
What I thought was never real
I want to let go of the pain Ive held so long
[Erase all the pain til its gone]
I want to heal
I want to feel
Like Im close to something real
I want to find something ive wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

And Ive got nothing to say
I cant believe I didnt fall right down on my face
I was confused
Looking everywhere/only to find that its
Not the way I had imagined it all in my mind
So what am I
What do I have but negativity
Cause I cant justify the
Way everyone is looking at me
Nothing to lose
Nothing to gain/hollow and alone
And the fault is my own
The fault is my own

I want to heal
I want to feel
What I thought was never real
I want to let go of the pain Ive held so long
[Erase all the pain til its gone]
I want to heal
I want to feel
Like Im close to something real
I want to find something ive 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
Ill find myself today

I want to heal
I want to feel
What I thought was never real
I want to let go of the pain Ive held so long
[Erase all the pain til its gone]
I want to heal
I want to feel
Like Im close to something real
I want to find something ive wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

I want to heal
I want to feel like Im
Somewhere i belong
I want to heal
I want to feel like Im
Somewhere i belong
Somewhere i belong

Lying Form You

When I pretend
Everything is what I want it to be
I look exactly like what you had always
Wanted to see
When I pretend
I can forget about the criminal I am
Stealing second after second just cause
I know I can/But
I cant pretend this is the way
It will stay/Im just
Trying to bend the truth
I cant pretend Im who you want me to be
So Im

Lying my way from you

[No/no turning back now]
I wanna be pushed aside
So let me go
[No/no turning back now]
Let me take back my life
Id rather be all alone
[No turning back now]
Anywhere on my own
Cause I can see
[No/no turning back now]
The very worst part of you
Is me

I remember what they taught to me
Remember condescending talk
Of who I ought to be
Remember listening to all of that
And this again
So I pretended up a person who was fitting in
And now you think this person
Really is me and Im
[Trying to bend the truth]
But the more I push
The more Im pulling away
Cause Im

Lying my way from you

[No/no turning back now]
I wanna be pushed aside
So let me go
[No/no turning back now]
Let me take back my life
Id rather be all alone
[No turning back now]
Anywhere on my own
Cause I can see
[No/no turning back now]
The very worst part of you
The very worst part of you
Is me

This isnt what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

This isnt what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

This isnt what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

This isnt what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

[No/no turning back now]
I wanna be pushed aside
So let me go
[No/no turning back now]
Let me take back my life
Id rather be all alone
[No turning back now]
Anywhere on my own
Cause I can see
[No/no turning back now]
The very worst part of you
The very worst part of you
Is me

Hit The Floor

There are just too many
Times that people
Have tried to look inside of me
Wondering what I think of you
And I protect you out of courtesy
Too many times that Ive
Held on when I needed to push away
Afraid to say what was on my mind
Afraid to say what I need to say
Too many
Things that youve said about me
When Im not around
You think having the upper hand
Means youve got to keep putting me down
But Ive had too many stand-offs with you
Its about as much as I can stand
So Im waiting until the upper hand
Is mine

One minute youre on top
The next youre not
Watch it drop
Making your heart stop
Just before you hit the floor
One minute youre on top
The next youre not
Missed your shot
Making your heart stop
You think you won

And then its all gone

So many people like me
Put so much trust in all your lies
So concerned with what you think
To just say what we feel inside
So many people like me
Walk on eggshells all day long
All I know is that all I want
Is to feel like Im not stepped on
There are so many things you say
That make me feel like youve crossed the line
What goes up will surely fall
And Im counting down the time
Cause Ive had so many stand-offs with you
Its about as much as I can stand
So Im waiting until the upper hand
Is mine

One minute youre on top
The next youre not
Watch it drop
Making your heart stop
Just before you hit the floor
One minute youre on top
The next youre not
Missed your shot
Making your heart stop
You think you won

And then its all gone
And then its all gone
And then its all gone
And then its all gone
Now its all gone

I know Ill never trust a single thing you say
You knew your lies would divide us
But you lied anyway
And all the lies have got you floating
Up above us all
But what goes up has got to fall

One minute youre on top
The next youre not
Watch it drop
Making your heart stop
Just before you hit the floor
One minute youre on top
The next youre not
Missed your shot
Making your heart stop
You think you won

And then its all gone
And then its all gone
And then its all gone
And then its all gone
Now its all gone

Easier To Run

Its easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
Its so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone

Something has been taken
From deep inside of me
A secret Ive 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 theyve played

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

Its easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
Its 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 didnt have
Sometimes I think of letting go
And never looking back
And never moving forward so
There would never be a past

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

Just washing it aside
All of the helplessness inside
Pretending I dont feel misplaced
Is so much simpler than change

Its easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
Its so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone

Its easier to run
If I could change I would
Take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made
Its easier to go
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

Faint

I am
A little bit of loneliness
A little bit of disregard
A handful of complaints
But I cant help the fact
That everyone can see these scars
I am
What I want you to want
What I want you to feel
But its like
No matter what I do
I cant 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 Im not
But Ill be here
Cause youre all that I got

I cant feel
The way I did before
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored
Time wont heal
This damage anymore
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored

I am
A little bit insecure
A little unconfident
Cause you dont understand
I do what I can
But sometimes I dont make sense
I am
What you never want to say
But Ive never had a doubt
Its like no matter what I do
I cant 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 Im not
But Ill be here
Cause youre all that I got

I cant feel
The way I did before
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored
Time wont heal
This damage anymore
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored

No
Hear me out now
Youre gonna listen to me
Like it or not
Right now
Hear me out now
Youre gonna listen to me
Like it or not
Right now

I cant feel
The way I did before
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored
I cant feel
The way I did before
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored
Time wont heal
This damage anymore
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored

I cant feel
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored
Time wont heal
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored

Figure.09

Nothing ever stops all these thoughts
And the pain attached to them
Sometimes I wonder why this is happening
Its like nothing I can do
Will distract me when
I think of how I shot myself in the back again
Cause from the infinite words I could say/I
Put all the pain you gave to me on
Display/But didnt
Realize/Instead of setting it free/I
Took what I hated and made it a part of me

[It never goes away] never goes away

And now
Youve become a part of me
Youll always be right here
Youve become a part of me
Youll always be my fear
I cant separate myself from
What Ive done
Giving up a part of me
Ive let myself become you

Hearing your name/the memories
Come back again
I remember when it started happening
Id see you in every thought I had and then
The thoughts slowly found words
Attached to them
And I knew as they escaped away I was
Committing myself to them/and every day I
Regret saying those things/cause now
I see/that I
Took what I hated and made it a part of me

[It never goes away] never goes away

And now
Youve become a part of me
Youll always be right here
Youve become a part of me
Youll always be my fear
I cant separate myself from
What Ive done
Giving up a part of me
Ive let myself become you

[It never goes away]
Never goes away, never goes away
Never goes away

Get away from
Me
Gimme my space back/you gotta just
Go
Everything comes down to memories of
You
Ive kept it in but now Im letting you
Know
Ive let you go
So get away from me
Gimme my space back/you gotta just
Go
Everything comes down to memories of
You
Ive kept it in but now Im letting you
Know
Ive let you go, go..
And now
Youve become a part of me
Youll always be right here
Youve become a part of me
Youll always be my fear
I cant separate myself from
What Ive done
Giving up a part of me
Ive let myself become you

Ive let myself become you
Ive let myself become lost inside these
Thoughts of you
Giving up a part of me
Ive let myself become you

Breaking The Habit

Memories consume Like opening the wound
Im picking me apart again
You all assume
Im safe here in my room
[Unless I try to start again]

I dont want to be the one
The battles always choose
Cause inside I realize
That Im the one confused

I dont know whats worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I dont know why I instigate
And say what I dont mean
I dont know how I got this way
I know its not alright
So Im
Breaking the habit
Im breaking the habit
Tonight

Clutching my cure
I tightly lock the door
I try to catch my breath again
I hurt much more
Than anytime before
I had no options left again

I dont want to be the one
The battles always choose
Cause inside I realize
That Im the one confused

I dont know whats worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I dont know why I instigate
And say what I dont mean
I dont know how I got this way
Ill never be alright
So Im
Breaking the habit
Im breaking the habit
Tonight

Ill paint it on the walls
Cause Im the one at fault
Ill never fight again
And this is how it ends

I dont know whats worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
But now I have some clarity
To show you what I mean
I dont know how I got this way
Ill never be alright
So Im
Breaking the habit
Im breaking the habit
Im breaking the habit
Tonight

From The Inside

I dont know who to trust
No surprise
Everyone feels so far away from me
Heavy thoughts sift through dust
And the lies

Trying not to break
But Im 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 tiring time between
And how
Trying to put my trust in you
Just takes so much out of me

I take everything from the inside
And throw it all away
Cause I swear/for the last time
I wont trust myself with you

Tension is building inside
Steadily
Everyone feels so far away from me
Heavy thoughts forcing their way
Out of me

Trying not to break
But Im 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 tiring time between
And how
Trying to put my trust in you
Just takes so much out of me

I take everything from the inside
And throw it all away
Cause I swear/for the last time
I wont trust myself with you
I wont waste myself on you, you, you
Waste myself on you, you, you

Ill take everything from the inside
And throw it all away
Cause I swear/for the last time
I wont trust myself with you
Everything from the inside
And just throw it all away
Cause I swear/for the last time
I wont trust myself with you, you, you

Nobody's Listening

Coming at ya..

Yo peep the style and the kids checking for it
The number one question is
How could you ignore it
We drop right back in the cut
Over basement tracks
With raps that got you backing this up like
[Rewind That]
Were just rolling with the rhythm
Rise from the ashes of stylistic division
With these non-stop lyrics of life living
Not to be forgotten
But still unforgiven
But in the meantime there are those who wanna
Talk this and that/so I suppose that
It gets to a point where feelings gotta get hurt
And get dirty with the people spreading the dirt
[It goes]

Try to give you warning
But everyone ignores me
[Told you everything loud and clear]
But nobodys listening
Call to you so clearly
But you dont want to hear me
[Told you everything loud and clear]
But nobodys listening

I got a
Heart full of pain/head full of stress
Handful of anger/held in my chest
And everything left is a waste of time
I hate my rhymes
[But hate everyone elses more]
Im riding on the back of this pressure
Guessing that its better
I cant keep myself together
Because of all this stress
Gave me something to write on
The pain gave me something
I could set my sights on
You never forget the blood sweat and tears
The uphill struggle over years
The fear and trash talking
And the people it was to
And the people that started it
Just like you

Try to give you warning
But everyone ignores me
[Told you everything loud and clear]
But nobodys listening
Call to you so clearly
But you dont want to hear me
[Told you everything loud and clear]
But nobodys listening

I got a
Heart full of pain/head full of stress
Handful of anger/held in my chest
Uphill struggle/blood, sweat and tears
Nothing to gain/everything to fear

Heart full of pain/head full of stress
Handful of anger/held in my chest
Uphill struggle/blood, sweat and tears
Nothing to gain/everything to fear
Heart full of pain..

Try to give you warning
But everyone ignores me
[Told you everything loud and clear]
But nobodys listening
Call to you so clearly
But you dont want to hear me
[Told you everything loud and clear]
But nobodys listening

Ive got Heart full of pain
Head full of stress
Nobodys listening
Handful of anger
Held in my chest
Nobodys listening
Uphill struggle
Blood, sweat and tears
Nobodys listening
Nothing to gain
Everything to fear
Nobodys listening

[Coming at you]

Numb

Im tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless
Lost under the surface
I dont know what youre 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

[Caught in the undertow
Just caught in the undertow]

Ive
Become so numb
I cant feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
Im becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you

Cant you see that youre 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 then I can take

Ive
Become so numb
I cant feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
Im becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you

And I know
I may end up failing too
But I know
You were just like me
With someone disappointed in you

Ive
Become so numb
I cant feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
Im becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you

Ive
Become so numb
I cant feel you there
Tired of being what you want me to be
Ive
Become so numb
I cant feel you there
Tired of being what you want me to be

Big Pimpin'/Papercut

Hahaha, wasting your talent Randy!
Yeah, youre ready?

Its like Im paranoid, lookin over my back
Its like a whirlwind inside of my head
Its like I cant stop what Im hearing within
Its like the face inside is right

Come on!

Why does it look like night today?
Something insides is not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoias all I got left
I dont 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
Its like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face that watches everytime they lie
A face that laughs everytime they fall
(And watches everything)
So you know that when its time to sink or swim
That face inside is hearing me
Right underneath my skin

Its like Im paranoid, lookin over my back
Its like a whirlwind inside of my head
Its like I cant stop what Im hearing within
Its like the face inside is right

You know I thug em, fuck em, love em, leave em
Cause I dont fuckin need em
Take em out the hood, keep em lookin good
But I dont fuckin feed em
First time they fuss Im breezin
Talkin bout, Whats the reasons?
Im a pimp in every sense of the word, bitch
Better trust than believe em
In the cut where I keep em
til I need a nut, til I need to beat the guts
Then its, beep beep and Im pickin em up
Let em play with the dick in the truck
Many chicks wanna put Jigga fist in cuffs
Divorce him and split his bucks
Just because you got good head, Im a break bread
So you can be livin it up? Shit I
Parts with nothin, yall be frontin

Not for nothin, never happen

Heart cold as assassins, I got no passion
I got no patience

The flow o the century always timeless HOV!
Thank you for comin out tonight
You coulda been anywhere in the world, but youre here with us
We appreciate that uh!

H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
Fo shizzle my nizzle used to dribble down in VA
Was herbin em in the home of the terrapins
Got it dirt cheap for them
Plus if they was short wit cheese I would work wit them
Boy and we got rid of that dirt for them
Wasnt born hustlers I was burpin em
H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
Fo sheezy my neezy keep my arms so breezy
Cant leave rap alone the game needs me
Haters want me clapped in chrome it aint easy
Cops wanna knock me, D.A. wanna box me in
But somehow, I beat them charges like Rocky
H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
Not guilty, he who does not feel me is not real to me
Therefore he doesnt exist
So poof vamoose son of a bitch

H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
Fo shizzle my nizzle used to dribble down in VA

Not guilty yall gotta feel me
H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A (Check it out)
Yo, It starts with one thing

I dont know why
It doesnt 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
Its so unreal
I didnt look out below
I watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on and didnt even know
I 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

H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
LP, Jay-Z, Help me out

Jigga What/Faint

Uh, uh, Jigga What?
Uh, uh, Jigga Who?
Uh, uh, Jigga What?
Uh, uh, Jigga Who?
Uh, uh, Jigga What?
You gonna need a vocal here right?

Motherfuckers wanna act loco, hit em wit numerous
shots with the fo-fo
Faggots runnin to the Po-Pos, smoke em like cocoa
Fuck rap, coke by the boatload
Fuck dat, on the run-by, gun high, one eye closed
Left holes through some guy clothes
Stop your bullshittin, glock with the full clip
Motherfuckers better duck when the fool spit
One shot could make a nigga do a full flip
See the nigga layin shocked when the bullet hit
And hey ma, how you, know niggaz wanna buy you
But see me I wanna fuck for free, like Akinyele
Take this ride til you feel it inside ya belly
If its tight get the K-Y Jelly
All night get you wide up inside the telly
Side to side, til you say Jay-Z youre too much for me

I am
A little bit of loneliness a little bit of disregard
Handful of complaints but I cant help the fact
That everyone can see these scars
I am
What I want you to want what I want you to feel
And its like no matter what I do I cant 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 Im not
Ill be here cause your all that Ive got

Got a condo with nuttin but condoms in it
The same place where the rhymes is invented
So all I do is rap and sex, imagine how I stroke
See how I was flowin on my last cassette?
Rapid-fire like Im blastin a tec, never jam though
Never get high, never run out of ammo
Niggas hatin n shit cause I slayed your bitch
You know your favorite, I know it made you sick
And now youre, actin raw but you never had war
Dont know how to carry your hoe, wanna marry your hoe
Now shes mad at me, cause your majesty, just happened to be
A pimp what a tragedy
She wanted, us to end, cause I fucked her friend
She gave me one more chance and I fucked her again
I seen her tears as she busted in, I said
Shit theres a draft, shut the door bitch and come on in!

I am
A little bit insecure a little unconfident
Cause you dont understand I do what I can
But sometimes I dont make sense
I am
What you never wanna say but Ive never had a doubt
Its like no matter what I do I cant 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 Im not
But Ill be here cause youre all that Ive got

I cant feel the way I did before
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored
Time wont heal this damage anymore
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored

Now
Hear me out now
Youre gonna listen to me, like it or not
Right now
Hear me out now
Youre gonna listen to me, like it or not
Right now

I cant feel the way I did before
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored

I cant feel the way I did before
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored
Time wont heal this damage anymore
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored

I cant feel
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored
Time wont heal
Dont turn your back on me
I wont be ignored

Lying From You/Dirt Of Your Shoulder

I ordered a frappuccino, wheres my fuckin frappuccino!?

When I pretend everything is what I want it to be
I look exactly like what you had always wanted to see
When I pretend, I cant forget about the criminal I am
Stealing second after second just cause I know I can but
I cant pretend this is the way itll stay Im just
(Trying to bend the truth)
I cant pretend Im who you want me to be, so Im
(Lying my way from)

If you feeling like a pimp, nigga go on, brush your shoulders off
Ladies is pimps too, go on, brush your shoulders off
Niggas is crazy baby, dont forget that boy told you, get that dirt off your shoulders
You gotta get that dirt off your shoulders

I probably owe it to yall
Probably be locked by the force
Tryin to hustle some things
There I go with the porsch
Feeling no remorse
Feeling like my hand was forced
Middle finger to the law
Nigga, gripping my balls
Said, the ladies they love me,
From the bleachers they screaming
All the ballers is bouncing
They like the way I be leanin
All the rappers be hatin
Off the track that Im makin
But all the hustlers, they love it
Just to see one of us make it
Came from the bottom of bottom
To the top of the pops
Nigga London, Japan
And Im straight up the block
Like a running back, get it man
Im straight off the block
I could run it back nigga cuz Im straight with the ROC

If you feeling like a pimp, nigga go on, brush your shoulders off
Ladies is pimps too, go on, brush your shoulders off
Niggas is crazy baby, dont forget that boy told you, get that dirt off your shoulders
You gotta get that dirt off your shoulders
You gotta get that dirt off your shoulders
You gotta get that dirt off your shoulders
You gotta get that dirt off your shoulders

Ya homie holdin position
In the kitchen with soda
I just whipped up a watch
Tryin to get me a rover
Tryin to stretch out the coka
Like a wrestler, yes sir
Keep the heckler close
You know them smokersll test ya
But like, 52 cards went out
Im through dealing now
52 bars come out
Now you feel em now
52 cars roll out
Remove ceiling in case
52 broads come out
Now you chillin with a boss bitch
Of course, SC on the sleeve
At the forty-forty club
ESPN on the screen
I paid a grip for the jeans
Plus the slippers is clean
No chrome on the wheels
Im a baller for real
Chill

I remember what they taught to me
Remember condescending talk for who I ought to be
Remember listening to all of that and this again
So I pretended up a person who was fittin in
And now you think this person really is me and Im
(Trying to bend the truth)
The more I push the more Im pulling away cuz Im

Lying my way from you
(No no turning back now)
I wanna be pushed aside so let me go
(No no turning back now)
Let me take back my life Id rather be all alone
(No turning back now)
Anywhere on my own cause I can see
(No no turning back now)
The very worst part of you
The very worst part of you is me

This isnt what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would
have you running from me
Like This
This isnt what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would

Biatch!

Numb/Encore

Yeah
Thank you, thank you, thank you, youre far too kind
Wooooo! Ha! Uh! Woo! Ready? Woo! Woo! Woo!
Lets go

Now can I get an encore, do you want more?
Cookin raw with the Brooklyn boy
So for one last time I need yall to roar

Now what the hell are you waiting for?
After me, there shall be no more
So for one last time nigga make some noise

Get em Jay

Who you know fresher than Hov? Riddle me that
The rest of yall know where Im lyrically at
Cant none of yall mirror me back
Yeah hearin me rap is like hearin G rap in his prime
Im, young H.O. raps grateful dead
Back to take over the globe, now break bread
Im in, Boeing jets, Global Express
Out the country but the blueberry still connect
On the low but the yacht got a triple deck
But when you young, what the fuck you expect? Yep, yep
Grand openin, grand closin
God your man Hov cracked the can open again
Who you gon find doper than him with no pen
just draw off inspiration (-tion)
Soon you gon see you cant replace him (him)
with cheap imitations for these generations

Now can I get an encore, do you want more?
Cookin raw with the Brooklyn boy
So for one last time I need yall to roar (roar, roar)

Now what the hell are you waiting for?
After me, there shall be no more
So for one last time nigga make some noise

What the hell are you waiting for?

Look what you made me do, look what I made for you
Knew if I paid my dues, how will they pay you
When you first come in the game, they try to play you
Then you drop a couple of hits, look how they wave to you
From Marcy to Madison Square
To the only thing that matters in just a matter of years (yea)
As fate would have it, Jays status appears
to be at an all-time high, perfect time to say goodbye
When I come back like Jordan, wearin the 4-5
It aint to play games witchu
Its to aim at you, probably maim you
If I owe you Im blowin you to smithereens
Cocksucker take one for your team
And I need you to remember one thing (one thing)
I came, I saw, I conquered
From record sales, to sold out concerts
So muhfucker if you want this encore
I need you to scream, til your lungs get sore

Im tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless lost under the surface
Dont know what youre 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
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)

Ive become so numb I cant feel you there
Ive become so tired so much more aware
Im becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

Ive become so numb
Now can I get an encore, do you want more?
Ive become so numb
So for one last time I need yall to roar
One last time I need yall to roar

Now once upon a time not too long ago
A nigga like myself had to strong arm a hoe
This is not a hoe in the sense of havin a pussy
But a pussy havin no God damn sense, try and push me
I tried to ignore him and talk to the Lord
Pray for him, cause some fools just love to perform
You know the type loud as a motor bike
But wouldnt bust a grape in a fruit fight
The only thing thats gonna happen is imma get to clappin
He and his boys gon be yappin to the captain
And there I go traped in the kit kat again
Back through the system with the riff raff again
Fiends on the floor scratchin again
Paparatzis with they cameras snappin them
D.A. tred to give the nigga the shaft again
Half-a-mil for bail cause Im African
All because ths fool was harrasin them
Tryin to play the boy like hes saccarin
But aint nothin sweet bout how I hold my gun

Given Up

wake in a sweat again
another day's been laid to waste
in my disgrace
stuck in my head again
feels like i'll never leave this place
there's no escape
i'm my own worst enemy

i've given up
i'm sick of living
is there nothing you can say
take this all away
i'm suffocating
tell me what the fuck is wrong with me

i don't know what to take
thought i was focused but i'm scared
i'm not prepared
i hyperventilate
looking for help somehow somewhere
and you don't care
put me out of my misery

Leave Out All The Rest

i dreamed i was missing
you were so scared
but no one would listen
cause no one else cared
after my dreaming
i woke with this fear
what am i leaving
when i'm done here
so if you're asking me i want you to know

when my time comes
forget the wrong that i've done
help me leave behind some
reasons to be missed
don't resent me
and when you're feeling empty
keep me in your memory
leave out all the rest
leave out all the rest

don't be afraid
i've taken my beating
i've shared what i made
i'm strong on the surface
not all the way through
i've never been perfect
but neither have you
so if you're asking me i want you to know

forgetting / all the hurt inside you learned to hide so well
pretending / someone else can come and save me from myself
i can't be who you are

Bleed It Out

here we go for the hundredth time
hand grenade pins in every line
throw 'em up and let something shine
going out of my fuckin mind
filthy mouth / no excuse
find a new place to hang this noose
string me up from atop these roofs
knot it tight so i won't get loose
truth is / you can stop and stare
bled myself out and no one cares
dug the trench out / laid down there
with a shovel up out of reach somewhere
yeah / someone pour it in
make it a dirt dance floor again
say your prayers and stomp it out
when they bring that chorus in
i bleed it out
digging deeper just to throw it away
just to throw it away
i bleed it out

i bleed it out / go / stop the show
choppy words and a sloppy flow
shotgun opera / lock and load
cock it back and then watch it go
mama help me / i've been cursed
death is rolling in every verse
candy paint on his brand new hearse
can't contain him / he knows he works
fuck this hurts / i won't lie / doesn't matter how
hard i try
half the words don't mean a thing and i know i
won't be satisfied
so why try ignoring him
make it a dirt dance floor again
say your prayers and stomp it out
when they bring that chorus in

i open up these scars
i'll make you face this i pull myself apart
i'll make you face this
i open up these scars
i'll make you face this now

Shadow of the Day

i close both locks below the window
i close both blinds and turn away
sometimes solutions aren't so simple
sometimes goodbye's the only way

and the sun will set for you
the sun will set for you
and the shadow of the day
will embrace the world in grey
and the sun will set for you

in cards and flowers on your window
your friends all plead for you to stay
sometimes beginnings aren't so simple
sometimes goodbye's the only way

and the shadow after day
will embrace the world in grey
and the sun will set for you

What I've Done

in this farewell
there's no blood
there's no alibi
cause i've drawn regret
from the truth
of a thousand lies

so let mercy come
and wash away

what i've done
i'll face myself
to cross out what i've become
erase myself
and let go of what i've done

put to rest
what you thought of me
while i've cleaned this slate
with the hands
of uncertainty

for what i've done
i start again
and whatever pain may come
today this ends
i'm forgiving what i've done

Hands Held High

turn my
mic up louder i got to say something
lightweights step it aside when we come in
feel it in your chest / the syllables get pumping
people on the street they panic and start running
words on loose leaf sheet complete coming
i jump in my mind and summon the rhyme i'm dumping
healing the blind i promise to let the sun in
sick of the dark ways we march to the drum and
jump when they tell us that they wanna see jumping
fuck that / i wanna see some fists pumping
risk something / take back what's yours
say something that you know they might attack you for
cause i'm sick of being treated like i have before
like it's stupid standing for what i'm standing for
like this war's really just a different brand of war
like it doesn't cater to rich and abandon poor
like they understand you in the back of the jet / when you
can't put gas in your tank / and these fuckers are
laughing their way to the bank / cashing the check
asking you to have compassion / have respect
for a leader so nervous in an obvious way
stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay
and the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
in their living room laughing like
what did he say

in my living room watching / i am not laughing / cause
when it gets tense i know what might happen
the world is cold / the bold men make action
have to react or get blown into fractions
ten years old / it's something to see / another
kid my age drug under a jeep
taken and bound / and found later under a tree
i wonder if he had thought the next one could be me
do you see / the soldiers / they're out today they
brush the dust from bulletproof vests away
it's ironic / at times like this you pray
but a bomb blew the mosque up yesterday
there's bombs on the busses / bikes / roads
inside your market / your shops / your clothes / my dad
he's got a lot of fear i know
but enough pride inside not to let that show
my brother had a book he would hold with pride
a little red cover with a broken spine
on the back / he hand wrote a quote inside:
'when the rich wage war it's the poor who die'
and meanwhile / the leader just talks away
stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay
the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
both scared and angry like
what did he say
with hands held high into a sky so blue
as the ocean opens up to swallow you

No More Sorrow

are you lost / in your lies
do you tell yourself i don't realize
your campaign's a disguise
replaced freedom with fear / you trade money for lives
i'm aware of what you've done

no / no more sorrow
i've paid for your mistakes
your / time is borrowed
your time has come to be replaced

i see pain / i see need
i see liars and thieves abuse power with greed
i had hope / i believed
but i'm beginning to think that i've been deceived
you will pay for what you've done

thieves and hypocrites

no / no more sorrow
i've paid for your mistakes
your / time is borrowed
your time has come to be replaced
your time has come to be erased

Valentine's Day

my insides all turned to ash / so slow
and blew away as i collapsed / so cold
a black wind took them away / from sight
and held the darkness over day / that night

and the clouds above move closer
looking so dissatisfied
but the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

i used to be my own protection / but not now
cause my path had lost direction / somehow
a black wind took you away / from sight
and held the darkness over day / that night

and the clouds above move closer
looking so dissatisfied
and the ground below grew colder
as they put you down inside
but the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

so now you're gone
and i was wrong
i never knew what it was like
to be alone
on a valentine's day

In Between

let me apologize to begin with
let me apologize for what i'm about to say
but trying to be genuine
was harder than it seemed
and somehow i got caught up in between

let me apologize to begin with
let me apologize for what i'm about to say
but trying to be someone else
was harder than it seemed
and somehow i got caught up in between

between my pride and my promise
between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
the things i want to say to you
get lost before they come
the only thing that's worse than one is none

let me apologize to begin with
let me apologize for what i'm about to say
but trying to regain your trust
was harder than it seemed
and somehow i got caught up in between

and i cannot explain to you
in anything i say or do or plan
fear is not afraid of you
but guilt's a language you can understand
i cannot explain to you
in anything i say or do
but hope the actions speak the words they can

for my pride and my promise
for my lies and how the truth gets in the way
the things i want to say to you
get lost before they come
the only thing that's worse than one is none

In Pieces

telling me to go
but hands beg me to stay
your lips say that you love
your eyes say that you hate

there's truth in your lies
doubt in your faith
what you build you lay to waste
there's truth in your lies
doubt in your faith
all i've got's what you didn't take

so i / i wont be the one
be the one to leave this
in pieces
and you / you will be alone
alone with all your secrets
your regrets
don't lie

you promise me the sky
then toss me like a stone
you wrap me in your arms
and chill me to the bone

there's truth in your lies
and doubt in your faith
what you build you lay to waste
there's truth in your lies
and doubt in your faith
all i've got's what you didn't take

so i / i wont be the one
be the one to leave this
in pieces
and you / you will be alone
alone with all your secrets
your regrets
don't lie

The Little Things Give You Away

water grey
through the windows
up the stairs
chilling rain
like an ocean
everywhere

don't want to reach for me do you
i mean nothing to you
the little things give you away
and now there will be no mistaking
the levees are breaking

all you've ever wanted
was someone to truly look up to you
and six feet / underwater
i do

hope decays
generations disappear
washed away
as a nation simply stares

all you've ever wanted
was someone to truly look up to you
and six feet / underwater
i do
all you've ever wanted
was someone to truly look up to you
and six feet / underground now
i do
