Somewhat Damaged                                                                      oben

 

So impressed with all you do

Tried so hard to be like you

Flew too high and burnt the wing

Lost my faith in everything

 

Lick around divine debris

Taste the wealth of hate in me

Shedding skin succumb defeat

This machine is obsolete

 

Made the choice to go away

Drink the fountain of decay

Tear a hole exquisite red

Fuck the rest and stab it dead

 

Broken bruised forgotten sore

Too fucked up to care anymore

Poisoned to my rotten core

Too fucked up to care anymore

 

In the back off the side far away is a place where I hide where I

Stay tried to say tried to ask I needed to all alone by myself where

Were you?

How could I ever think it's funny how everything that

Swore it wouldn't change is different now just like you

Would always say we'll make it through then my head fell apart

And where were you?

How could I ever think it's funny how everything you swore would

Never change is different now like you said you and me make it

Through didn't quite fell apart

Where the fuck were you

 

 

The Day The World Went Away                                                     oben

 

I'd listen to the words he'd say

But in his voice I heard decay

The plastic face forced to portray

All the insides left cold and gray

There is a place that still remains

It eats the fear it eats the pain

The sweetest price he'll have to pay

The day the whole world went away

 

Na na nah

Na na na, nah

Na na nah

Na na na, nah

 

 

The Wretched                                                                                   oben

 

Just a reflection

Just a glimpse

Just a little reminder

Of all the what abouts

And all the might have

Could have beens

Another day

Some other way

But not another reason to continue

And now you're one of us

The wretched

 

The hopes and prays

The better days

The far aways

Forget it

 

It didn't turn out the way you wanted it to

It didn't turn out the way you wanted it, did it?

It didn't turn out the way you wanted it to

It didn't turn out the way you wanted it, did it?

 

Now you know

This is what it feels like

Now you know

This is what it feels like

 

The clouds will part and the sky cracks open

And god himself will reach his fucking arm

Through

Just to push you down

Just to hold you down

Stuck in this hole with the shit and the piss

And it's hard to believe it could come down to this

Back at the beginning

Sinking

Spinning

 

And in the end

We still pretend

The time we spend

Not knowing when

You're finally free

And you could be

 

But it didn't turn out the way you wanted it to

It didn't turn out quite the way that you wanted it

 

Now you know

This is what it feels like

Now you know

This is what it feels like

 

You can try to stop it but it keeps on coming

You can try to stop it but

 

 

We're In This Together                                                                   oben

 

I've become impossible

Holding on to when

When everything seemed to matter more

The two of us

All used and beaten up

Watching fate as it flows down the path we

Have chose

 

You and me

We're in this together now

None of them can stop us now

We will make it through somehow

You and me

If the world should break in two

Until the very end of me

Until the very end of you

 

Awake to the sound as they peel apart the skin

They pick and they pull

Trying to get their fingers in

Well they've got to kill what we found

Well they've got to hate what they fear

Well they've got to make it go away

Well they've got to make it disappear

 

The further I fall I'm beside you

As lost as I get I will find you

The deeper the wound I'm inside you

For ever and ever I am a part of

 

You and me

We're in this together now

None of them can stop us now

We will make it through somehow

You and me

If the world should break in two

Until the very end of me

Until the very end of you

 

All that we were is gone we have to hold on

All that we were is gone, but we have to hold on

When all our hope is gone we have to hold on

All that we were is gone but we can hold on

 

You and me

We're in this together now

None of them can stop us now

We will make it through somehow

You and me

Even after everything

You're the queen and I'm the king

Nothing else means anything

 

 

The Fragile                                                                                       oben

 

She shines

In a world of ugliness

She matters

When everything is meaningless

 

Fragile

She doesn't see her beauty

She tries to get away

Sometimes

It's just that nothing seems worth saving

I can't watch her slip away

 

I wont let you fall apart

 

She reads the minds of all the people as they pass her by

Hoping someone can see

If I could fix myself I'd -

But it's too late for me

 

I wont let you fall apart

 

We'll find the perfect place to go where we can run and hide

I'll build a wall and we can keep them on the other side

...but they keep waiting

...and picking...

 

It's something I have to do

I was there, too

Before everything else

 

I was like you

 

 

Even Deeper                                                                                     oben

 

I woke up today

To find myself in the other place

With a trail of my footprints

From where I ran away

It seems everything I've heard

Just might be true

And you know me

(Well you think you do)

Sometimes, I have everything-

Yet I wish I felt something

 

Do you know how far this has gone?

Just how damaged have I become?

When I think I can overcome

It runs even deeper

 

And in a dream I'm a different me

With a perfect you

We fit perfectly

And for once in my life I feel complete-

And I still want to ruin it

Afraid to look

As clear as day

This plan has long been underway

 

I hear them call

I cannot stay

The voice inviting me away

 

Do you know how far this has gone?

Just how damaged have I become?

When I think I can overcome

It runs even deeper

Everything that matters is gone

All the hands of hope have withdrawn

Could you try to help me hang on?

It runs...

 

I'm straight

I won't crack

On my way

And I can't turn back

I'm okay

I'm on track

On my way

And I can't turn back

I stayed

On this track

Gone too far

And I can't come back

I stayed

On this track

Lost my way

Can't come back

 

 

No, You Don't                                                                                   oben

 

Smiling in their faces

While filling up the hole

So many dirty little places

In your filthy little worn out

Broken down see through soul

 

Baby's got a problem

Tries so hard to hide

Got to keep it on the surface

Because everything else is dead on the other side

 

Teeth in the necks of everyone you know

You can keep on sucking until the blood won't flow

When it starts to hurt it only helps it grow

Taking all you need

(But not this time)

No, you don't

 

And just for the record

Just so you know

I did not believe

That you could sink so low

 

You think that you can beat them

I know that you won't

You think you have everything

But no, you don't

 

No, you don't

No, you don't

No, you don't

No, you don't

 

 

La Mer                                                                                                oben

 

And when the day arrives

I'll become the sky

And I'll become the sea

 

And the sea will come to kiss me

For I am going

Home

 

Nothing can stop me now

 

 

The Great Below                                                                              oben

 

Staring at the sea

Will she come?

Is there hope for me

After all is said and done

Anything at any price

All of this for you

All the spoils of a wasted life

All of this for you

All the world has closed her eyes

Tired faith all worn and thin

For all we could have done

And all that could have been

 

Ocean pulls me close

And whispers in my ear

The destiny I've chose

All becoming clear

The currents have their say

The time is drawing near

Washes me away

Makes me disappear

 

I descend from grace

In arms of undertow

I will take my place

In the great below

 

I can still feel you

Even so far away

 

 

The Way Out Is Through                                                                 oben

 

All I've undergone

I will keep on

 

Underneath it all

We feel so small

The heavens fall

But still we crawl

 

All I've undergone

I will keep on

 

Into The Void                                                                                    oben

 

Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away

 

Talking to myself all the way to the station

Pictures in my head of the final destination

All lined up

(All the ones that aren't allowed to stay)

Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away

 

Tried to save a place from the cuts and the scratches

Tried to overcome the complications and the catches

Nothing ever grows and the sun doesn't shine all day

Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away

 

Tried to save myself but myself keeps slipping away

 

 

Where Is Everybody?                                                                     oben

 

Did you happen to catch

Or did you happen so fast

What you thought would always last

Has passed you by

Is everything speeding up

Or am I slowing down

Just spinning around

And I don't know why

All the pieces don't fit

Though I really don't give a shit

I never wanted to be like you

But for all I aspire

I am really a liar

And I'm running out of things I can do

 

I'd like to stay

But every day

Everything pushes me further away

If you could show

Help me to know

How it's supposed to be

Where did it go?

 

Pleading and

Needing and

Bleeding and

Breeding and

Feeding

Exceeding

Where is everybody?

Trying and

Lying

Defying

Denying

Crying and

dying

Where is everybody?

 

Well, okay, enough,

You've had your fun

But come on there has got to be someone

That hasn't yet become

So numb

And succumb

And

God damn I am so tired of pretending

Of wishing I was ending

When all I'm really doing is trying to hide

And keep it inside

And fill it with lies

Open my eyes?

Maybe I wish I could try

 

Pleading and

Needing and

Bleeding and

Breeding and

Feeding

 

Exceeding

Where is everybody?

Trying and

Lying

Defying

Denying

Crying and

Dying

Where is everybody?

 

 

Please                                                                                                oben

 

This is how

It begins

Push it away but it all comes back again

All the flesh

All the sin

There was a time when it used to mean just about everything

 

Just like now

 

Breathe, echoing the sound

Time starts slowing down

Sink until I drown

(Please) I don't ever want to make it stop

 

And it keeps repeating

Will you please complete me?

 

Never be enough

To fill me up

 

Watch the white

Turn to red

It fills up the hole but it grows somewhere else instead

All my life

Yeah yeah yeah yeah, but it just left me dead

(Well guess what?)

The world is over and I realize it was all in my head

 

Now everything is clear

I erase the fear

I can disappear

(Please) I don't ever want to make it stop

 

You can never leave me

Will you please complete me

 

Never be enough

To fill me up

 

 

Starfuckers, Inc.                                                                             oben

 

My God sits in the back of the limousine

My God comes in a wrapper of cellophane

My God pouts on the cover of the magazine

My God is a shallow little bitch trying to make a scene

 

I have arrived and this time you should believe the hype

I listened to everyone now I know that everyone was right

I'll be there for you as long as it works for me

I play a game it's called insincerity

 

Starfuckers

Starfuckers

Starfuckers, Inc.

Starfuckers

 

I am every fucking thing and just a little more

I sold my soul but don't you dare call me a whore

And when I suck you off not a drop will go to waste

It's really not so bad you know once you get past the taste, yeah

(asskisser)

 

Starfuckers

Starfuckers

Starfuckers, Inc.

Starfuckers

 

All our pain

How did we ever get by without you?

You're so vain

I bet you think this song is about you

Don't you?

Don't you?

Don't you?

Don't you?

 

Now I belong, I'm one of the chosen ones

Now I belong, I'm one of the beautiful ones

 

 

I'm Looking Forward To Joining You Finally                               oben

 

As black as the night can get

Everything is safer now

There's always a way to forget

Once you learn to find a way how

 

In the blur of serenity

Where did everything get lost?

The flowers of naiveté

Buried in a layer of frost

 

The smell of sunshine

I remember sometimes

 

Thought he had it all before they called his bluff

Found out that his skin just wasn't thick enough

Wanted to go back to how it was before

Thought he lost everything

Then he lost a whole lot more

 

A fool's devotion

Swallowed up in empty space

The tears of regret

Frozen to the side of his face

 

The smell of sunshine

I remember sometimes

 

I've done all I can do

Could I please come with you?

Sweet smell of sunshine

I remember sometimes

 

 

The Big Come Down                                                                       oben

 

There is a game I play

Try to make myself okay

Try so hard to make the pieces all fit

Smash it apart

Just for the fuck of it

 

Bye bye oooh

Got to get back to the bottom

Bye bye oooh

The big come down isn't that what you wanted?

Bye bye oooh

Find a place with the failed and forgotten

Bye bye oooh

Isn't that really what you wanted now?

 

There is no place I can go there is no way i can hide

It feels like it keeps coming from the inside

 

There is a hate that burns within

The most desperate place I have ever been

Try to get back to where I'm from

The closer I get the worse it becomes

The closer I get the worse it becomes

 

There is no place I can go there is no place i can hide

It feels like it keeps coming from the inside

 

 

Underneath It All                                                                             oben

 

All I do

I can still feel you

 

Numb all through

I can still feel you

Hear your call

Underneath it all

Kill my brain

Yet you still remain

Crucified

After all I've died

After all I've tried

You are still inside

 

All I do

I can still feel you

 

You remain

I am stained
