SICK OF MYSELF

I'm so sick of myself so sick of myself
Don't wanna be me
Wanna be someone else
I'm laying down on the road 
Looking up at the stars 
Don't wanna be where I am 
Wanna be where you are


Chorus
I'm so sick, sick of myself
I'm so sick, sick of myself
I'm so sick, sick of myself

I know life is short
I heard them say
It's better to burn right out
Then fade away 
I'm laying down on the road 
Looking up at the stars
Don't wanna be where I am
Wanna be where you are

Chorus

I've got to be who I see in my mind
She's waiting on me and I'm done wasting time
I lost myself somewhere down the line
Now I'm done, I'm done, with being numb

I'm in love with myself 
In love with myself
I've gotta do it
'Cause there's no one else
I'm laying down on the road 
Looking up at the stars
Don't wanna be where I am 
Wanna be where you are

Chorus

BEAUTIFUL TERRIBLE

Got me by the throat
Put me on the floor
Day like today
Wonder what it's all for?
A little bit of kindness
Goes a long long way
If there was more 
We wouldn't be in this state..... hate

When I asked her
With tears in my eyes
Why, why, why?
She said baby, baby, baby
It's just life

Kiss you or kill you
Crush you or thrill you
It's an unpredictable 
Mystical ride
Moment to moment 
Day to day
You never know 
What you're gonna find

When I asked her
With tears in my eyes
Why, why, why?
She said baby, baby, baby
That's just life 

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, terrible life
(Ad lib) ... beautiful...

When you wake up in the  morning 

you never know what you're gonna find

It's a dangerous world

I hope we make it in time

ZEBRAS AND BUTTERFLIES 

Drank the whiskey, all the whiskey (repeat)

Drank the whiskey, all the whiskey
Should have lasted 3 days
And the zebras and butterflies 
Have all passed away 
Give her more pills, genius pills 
Let them say she’s acting strange
No matter what it takes 
Just get her out on the stage 

Voice of angel, mind unstable 
Or so they like to say
Ride your coat tails, tragedy sells 
And baby it’s you who’s paid
27, there’s no heaven
Just this Rock and Roll cage
Unruly beautiful 
Getting unsuitable for their gaze

(Chorus)
Drank the whiskey, all the whiskey
Should have lasted 3 days
And the zebras and butterflies 
Have all passed away
Give her more pills, genius pills
Let them say she’s acting strange
No matter what it takes
Just keep her on the stage

Woke up high and had a good thought
Knocked it down with tanqueray 
The ladies sick and you’re addicted 
to her fame
27 what you’ve given is Here to stay
Alone on a Saturday 
Demons driven her away

(Chorus)
Drank the whiskey, all the whiskey
Should have lasted 3 days
And the zebras and butterflies 
Have all passed away
Give her more pills, genius pills
Let them say she’s acting strange
No matter what it takes
Just keep them on the stage

Little girl lost 
Diva payed cost 
The world mourns it’s loss....

GO AND BE FREE

 

You can't be free here

It was never meant to be

You get your teeth out

And snarl at conformity 

You are the wild one

You threaten the sedate

If we could love you

It is us who would be saved

(Chorus)

Go and be free

Go and be free

You're not ours to keep

You're not ours to keep

No oh no no (repeat) 

 

we've gotta get you outta here

This is a factory

You get your claws out

And scratch at, the illuminati 

If they could let you

Be yourself, you could be great

But they will crush you yeah

They will rush you too your grave

 

Chorus....


PLENTY OF TIME  (TO DIE)

Close your eyes baby
It’s better for you
Go to sleep
Just like they want you to
Keep watching your tv
‘Cause there’s nothing you can do
And remember you are free
To do whatever they tell you to

(Chorus)

Wake up wake me up baby
There’s plenty of time to die
Wake up wake me up save me
There’s plenty of time to die 

They’ve got us fragile now
Like birds with broken wings
We used to fly didn’t we?
Will we ever again
Write us up wipe us out
There’s nothing left to talk about
So now they lay me down, down
Will I ever rise again

Chorus

I’m in the desert now
To set my mind free
Altering the state of your reality 
Turn us off, lock us up
You’re never gonna shut us up
We occupy the streets tonight 
Because we know we’ve got the right

(Spoken)

If I lay down in my mind
Would you lie down with me
And see the endless possibilities 
They want us numb, dumb
Unquestioning 
My path unswerving towards the strange
Enlightened, deranged 
It’s not too late I’m here 
To claim my fate! 

Wake up, Wake up, Wake up
Wake up, Wake! 

Chorus

Close

your 

eyes

baby

It's

Better

For

You
