Burn                                                                                     oben

 

This world rejects me
This world threw me away
This world never gave me a chance
This world gonna have to pay

Well I don't believe in your institutions
I did what you wanted me to
And like the cancer in your system
I've got a little surprise for you

Something inside of me
has opened up its eyes
Why did you put it there?
Did you not realize?
This thing inside of me
It screams the loudest sound
Sometimes I think I could

Burn

I look down at where you're standing
Flock of sheep all on display
With all your lies piled up around you
I can take it all away

Something inside of me
has opened up its eyes
Why did you put it there?
Did you not realize
Something inside of me
It screams the loudest sound
Sometimes I think I could

I'm gonna burn this whole world down

I never was a part of you

I am your savior
I am corruption
I am the angel
Of your destruction
I am perversion
Secret desire
I am your future
Swallowed up in fire

 

Dead Souls                                                                  oben

 

Someone take these dreams away
That point me to another day
A duel of personalities
That stretch all true reality

They keep calling me
Keep on calling me
They keep calling me
Keep on calling me

When figures from the past stand tall
And mocking voices ring the hall
Imperialistic house of prayer
Conquistadors who took their share

They keep calling me
Keep on calling me
They keep calling me
Keep on calling me

Calling me, calling me

They keep calling me
Keep on calling me
They keep calling me
Keep on calling me

 

Deep (Album Version)                                                 oben

 

Blank stare
Disrepair
There's a big black hole
Gonna eat me up someday
Someday fades away
Like a memory
Or a place that you'd rather be
Some place lost in space
Itch in my head, that's telling me somewhere
Somewhere out there anywhere
I don't care, get me out of here
If I could feel
All the pins and the pricks

If you were real
I could pick what's apart
And put it back together

This will come true
Help me get through
Into you

Deep

All I can do
driving me through
Into you

Deep

One track
Get you on your back
Your skin speaks soft,
but your lips couldn't say it

Right now
You know somehow
We could take a chance
We could make it
Make it
Right here
Make it all disappear
Everything we've been missing
Missing
You make me feel
There's a part of me, that I want to get back again

Make this come true
Help me get through
Into you

Deep

All I can do
Pushing it through
Into you

Deep

Into you

All I can do
Driving on through
Into you

Deep

You're slipping through
I come in two
Into you

Deep

We could become
Two into one
Leave this behind
Over and done
Everything new

I'm getting through
Into you
Do you?

 

Metal                                                                             oben

We're in the building where they make us grow
And I'm frightened by the liquid engineers
Like you

My Mallory heart is sure to fail
I could crawl around the floor just like I'm real
Like you

The sound of metal I want to be you
I could learn to be a man
Like you

Plug me in and turn me on
Oh everything is moving

I need my treatment it's tomorrow they send me
Singing "I am an American"
Do you?

Picture this if they could make the change
I'd love to pull the wires from the wall
Did you?

And who are you and how can I try?
Here inside I like metal
Don't you?

All I know is no one dies
I'm still confusing love with need

 

Non Entity                                                                     oben

 

The sky is not the same
Shade of blue
Every single thing
I believe isn't true

Missing in a maze
Of monochrome
How did I get here?
How can I go home?

The echoes in my eyes
Of all they used to see
Burning down the world
The ashes and debris
And all thats left of me
Non-Entity

Tried to stand in line
Tried to obey
The ghosts of what I was
Keep getting in the way

Staring at the sun
Blinded by the light
Now I'm afraid I'm fading out of sight

The echoes in my eyes
Of all they used to see
Burning down the world
The ashes and debris
And all thats left of you
And all thats left of me
All have washed away
Non-Entity

 

Not So Pretty Now                                               oben

 

You left your opening wide
And you let everyone come inside
There's always something you've got to hide
So you lied, and you lied, and you lied

Make sure to grab everything that you need
You've got a hole that you've got to feed
You try to fill it all up with your greed
But it bleeds, and it bleeds, and it bleeds

Go take a little more
We'll scrape you off the floor
We love you anyhow
But you're not so pretty now

A great big superstar
Is what you think you are
We love you anyhow
But you're not so pretty now

Nobody burns quite as bright
Well goddamn, maybe you're right
There's always battles before you fight
And you might, you might just might

But there is something I gotta say
There is a price you know you pay
Try as hard as you can to stay
He's just fading, and fading, and fading the fuck away

Go take a little more
We'll scrape you off the floor
We love you anyhow
But you're not so pretty now

A great big superstar
Is what you think you are
We love you anyhow
But you're not so pretty now

Better turn the lights down low
The cracks begin to show
We love you anyhow
But you're not so pretty now

And soon you will be gone
And we will all have one
You never mattered anyhow
And you're not so pretty now

 

 

The Perfect Drug                                                          oben

 

I got my head, but my head is unraveling
Can't keep control, can't keep track of where it's traveling
I got my heart but my heart is no good
And you're the only one that's understood

I come along but I don't know where you're taking me
I shouldn't go but you're reaching, dragging, shaking me
Turn off the sun, pull the stars from the sky
The more I give to you, the more I die

And I want you
And I want you
And I want you
And I want you

You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug

You make me hard, when I'm all soft inside
I see the truth, when I'm all stupid eyed
The arrow goes straight through my heart
Without you everything just falls apart

My blood wants to say hello to you
My feelings want to get inside of you
My soul is so afraid to realize
How very little there is left of me

And I want you
And I want you
And I want you
And I want you

You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug

You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the drug, the perfect drug

Take me, if you want
Take me, if you want
Take me, if you want
Take me, if you want

Without you, without you everything falls apart
Without you, it's not as much fun to pick up the pieces
Without you, without you everything falls apart
Without you, it's not as much fun to pick up the pieces
It's not as much fun to pick up the pieces
It's not as much fun to pick up the pieces
Without you, without you everything falls apart
Without you, it's not as much fun to pick up the pieces

 

Vacant (Liveversion 2000)                                           oben

 

Dead as dead can be

From what the doctor tells me

But I just can't believe him

prefer the optimistic (one?)

I'm sure of your ability

to become my perfect enemy

Wake up to face me

rise up and show me

someday I'll say you're vacant

and maybe you're better off this way

Leaning over you here

cold and catatonic

I catch a brief reflection

of what you could and might have been

It's your right and your ability

... My perfect enemy

Wake up (again to / why can't you) face me

rise up and show me

Someday I'll say you're vacant

and maybe you're better off this way

Maybe you're better off this way

People better off this way

You're better off this way

2x you're better off this

Maybe you're better off

Wake up (again to / why can't you) face me, come on and

Rise up, (why can't you / I tell you,) show me (show me)

Some day I'll say you're vacant

and maybe you're better off this way

Go ahead and play dead

I know that you can hear this

Go ahead and play dead

I know that you can hear me

3x Why can't you turn and face me

You fucking disappoint me
