Kryptonite

I took a walk around the world To ease my troubled mind I left my body laying somewhere In the sands of time I watched the world float To the dark side of the moon I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah I watched the world float To the dark side of the moon After all I knew it had to be Something to do with you I really donít mind what happens now and then As long as youíll be my friend at the end If I go crazy then will you still Call me Superman If Iím alive and well, will you be There holding my hand Iíll keep you by my side With my superhuman might Kryptonite You called me strong, you called me weak, But still your secrets I will keep You took for granted all the times I never let you down You stumbled in and bumped your head, If not for me then you would be dead I picked you up and put you back On solid ground If I go crazy then will you still Call me Superman If Iím alive and well, Will you be there holding my hand Iíll keep you by my side With my superhuman might Kryptonite Yeah!! If I go crazy then will you still Call me Superman If Iím alive and well, will you be there Holding my hand Iíll keep you by my side With my superhuman might Kryptonite


Loser

Breathe in right away, Nothing seems to fill this place I need this every time, Take your lies get off my case Someday I will find a love That flows through me like this This will fall away, this will fall away Youíre getting closer to pushing me Off of lifeís little edge Cause Iím a loser And sooner or later You know Iíll be dead Youíre getting closer, Youíre holding the rope, I'm taking the fall Cause Iím a loser, Iím a loser, yeah This is getting old, I canít break these chains that I hold My bodyís growing cold, Thereís nothin left of this mind Or my soul Addiction needs a pacifier, The buzz of this poison is taking me higher This will fall away, This will fall away Youíre getting closer, to pushing me Off of lifeís little edge Cause Iím a loser and sooner or later You know Iíll be dead Youíre getting closer, Youíre holding the rope and Iím taking the fall Cause Iím a loser Youíre getting closer, to pushing me Off of lifeís little edge Cause Iím a loser and sooner or later You know Iíll be dead Youíre getting closer, Youíre holding the rope And Iím taking the fall Cause Iím a loser


Duck and Run

To this world Iím unimportant Just because I have nothing to give So you call this your free country Tell me why it cost so much to live Tell me why This world can turn me down But I wonít turn away, oh no I wonít turn around All my work and endless measures Never seem to get me very far Walk a mile just to move an inch Now even though Iím trying so damn hard Iím trying so hard This world can turn me down but I Wonít turn away And I wonít duck and run, cause Iím not built that way When everything is gone there is Nothing there to fear This world cannot bring me down No cause Iím already here, oh no! I am already here, Down on my knees I am already here, on no, I am Already here I must have told you a thousand times, I am not running away I wonít duck and run I wonít duck and run I wonít duck and run No pass away This world can turn me down but I Wonít turn away And I wonít duck and run, cause Iím not built that way When everything is gone There is nothing there to fear This world cannot bring me down No cause Iím already here This world can turn me down But I wonít turn away And I wonít duck away Cause Iím not built that way When everything is gone there Is nothing there to fear This world cannot bring me down No cause Iím already here


Not Enough

Seven days underpaid Gotta give it up Got no time for this life that Iím liviní up Shackled down, kicked around, Now slave to the grind Need some time for myself Iíll give you anything that you want me to If you donít have the time so Iíll get up with you If you donít understand man Youíve got to believe There is too much of you but There is not enough of me There is not enough of me Same old song world moves On while Iím still in bed Meet tomorrow today just to Get ahead Jump the gun on the run, Iím the only one Who thinks that Iím falliní behind? Iíll give you anything that You want me to But I donít have the time So Iíll get up with you If you donít understand Man youíve got to believe There is too much of you But there is not enough of me There is not enough of me Iíll give you anything that you want me to But I donít have the time so Iíll Get up with you If you donít understand man Youíve got to believe There is too much of you there Is too much of me Iíll give you anything that you want me to But I donít have the time so Iíll Get up with you If you donít understand man Youíve got to believe There is too much of you but there Is not enough of me


Be Like That

He spends his nights in California, Watching the stars on the big screen Then he lies awake and he wonders, Why canít that be me Cause in his life he is filled With all these good intentions Heís left a lot of things Heíd rather not mention right now But just before he says goodnight, He looks up with a little smile at me, And he says, If I could be like that, I would give anything Just to live one day, in those shoes If I could be like that, I would give anything Just to live one day, in those shoes If I could be like that, what would I do, What would I do Now and dreams we run She spends her days up in the north park, Watching the people as they pass And all she wants is just A little piece of this dream, Is that too much to ask With a safe home, and a warm bed, On a quiet little street All she wants is just that something to Hold onto, thatís all she needs Yeah! If I could be like that, I would give anything Just to live one day, in those shoes If I could be like that, what would I do, What would I do Iím falling into this, dreams We run away If I could be like that, I would give anything Just to live one day, in those shoes If I could be like that, what would I do, What would I do If I could be like that, I would give anything Just to live one day, in those shoes If I could be like that, what would I do, What would I do If I could be like that, I would give anything Just to live one day, in those shoes If I could be like that, what would I do, What would I do Falling in I feel I am falling in, to this again.


Life on My Own

Living risky, never scared, wander Closer to the edge Nothing valued think no fear, Always wondering why youíre here All your purposes are gone, nothingís Right and nothingís wrong Nothing ventured, nothing gained Feel no sorrow, feel no pain Kiss me while Iím still alive Kill me while I kiss the sky Let me die on my own terms, Let me live and let me learn Now Iíll follow my own way, and Iíll Live on to another damn day Freedom carries sacrifice, Remember when this was my life Looking forward, not behind Everybodyís got to cross that line Free me now to give me a place, Keep me caged and free the beast Falling faster, time goes by, Fear is not seen through these eyes What there was will never be, Now Iím blind and cannot see Kiss me while Iím still alive Kill me while I kiss the sky Let me die on my own terms, let me Live and let me learn Now Iíll follow my own way, and Iíll Live on to another damn day Freedom carries sacrifice, Remember when this was my life Kiss me while Iím still alive Kill me while I kiss the sky Let me die on my own terms, let me Live and let me learn Now Iíll follow my own way, And Iíll live on to another damn day Freedom carries sacrifice, Remember when this was my life.

Down Poison

To the better Iíve dreamed about this, Sixteen days away Now youíre here, And my head lays besides your body, Pillowed under mine You were poison, Spinning round my mind Welcome to my world She said, do you feel Alive she said Itís all a bad dream, Spinning in your lonely head, Welcome to my world, She said, separated world, She said, separated, Down poison, Down poison, Body withered, Body died, Time to take away this life Bad enough to die from one, Not to mention Four or five Welcome to my world She said, do you feel alive she said Itís all a bad dream, Spinning in your lonely head Welcome to my world she said, Separated world, She stayed separated Down poison, down poison Down poison, down You werenít there for me, I was there for you You werenít there for me, I was there for you You werenít there for me, I was there for you You werenít there for me, I was there for you You wouldnít die for me, Iíve died for you You wouldnít die for me, Iíve died for you You wouldnít die for me, Iíve already died for you You wouldnít die, you wouldnít die, you wouldnít die! Welcome to my world she said, do you feel alive she said Itís all a bad dream, Spinning in your lonely head Welcome to my world she said, Separated world, she stayed separated Down poison, down poison Down poison, down.


By My Side

They blazed a trail I dared to run They built this world and I have come I need another, like a brother For a cryiní shoulder This could be the last time, you will Stand by my side I can feel my soul itís bleeding, will you fly With me this evening Sober mind time now is gone, they carved my Body not of stone A pretty maze emptiness, Iíve said the hell With all the rest This could be the last time, you will Stand by my side I can feel my soul itís bleeding, will you fly With me tonight This could be the last time, you will Stand by my side I can feel my soul itís bleeding, will you fly With me this evening.


Smack

Rubber headed motor junky, Run me down and try to stomp me Throw my life away, and Iíll be worthless Just like you Somewhere now a babyís crying, Down the road his motherís dying Shot a line and blew her mind And now sheís turning blue Donít you throw your life away, Just wait until another day Donít you throw your life away, Cause baby I can feel it Donít you ever compromise it, Donít you even realize it Donít throw your life away, Cause baby I can feel it, now Trip and fall, Iím sure you all can tell me What is on the wall behind the liquor store Where you get smacked up all the time Perfect little life you wasted, Overdosed and that death you tasted Scared you back into yourself, and now You walk the line Donít you throw your life away, Just wait until another day Donít you throw your life away, Cause baby I can feel it Donít you ever compromise it, Donít you even realize it Donít throw your life away, Cause baby I can feel it, now Life away Life away Life away


So I Need You

If you could step into my head, tell Me would you still know me If you woke up in my bed, Tell me then would you hold me Or would you simply let it lie, Leaving me to wonder why I canít get you out of this head I call mine And I will say Oh no I canít let you go, My little girl Because youíre holding up my world, So I need you Your imitation of my walk And the perfect way you talk Itís just a couple of the million things That I love about you So I need you So I need you So I need you So I need you And if I jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge, Tell me would you still follow me And if I made you mad today, Tell me would you love me tomorrow? Please Or would you say that you donít care, And then leave me standing here Like the fool who is drowning in dispair And screaminí Oh no I canít let you go, My little girl Because youíre holding up my world, So I need you Your imitation of my walk And the perfect way you talk Itís just a couple of the million Things that I love about you So I need you So I need you So I need you So I need you Iím on my own Iím on my own Iím on my own Oh no I canít let you go, My little girl Because youíre holding up my world, So I need you Your imitation of my walk And the perfect way you talk Itís just a couple of the million things That I love about you So I need you So I need you So I need you So I need you!
