NOTE The lyrics on the booklet of the original release of the album were abridged causing people putting lyrics on the web to make up the parts that weren't written down and were hard to understand. The Volume 1 box set of remastered albums also included newly printed much more complete lyrics for these songs. I went back and compared the new lyrics to the old with what I already had and listened again to make sure everything is as correct as possible. There were still a couple parts where what was written even in the newly printed lyrics were clearly wrong, so I believe mine are the most accurate lyrics printed. So please credit my site if you copy these.

01 POPULATION CONTROL

(2:13)

I kneel to you when you preach to me
You're my god, you're my TV
You control what I say, you control what I hear
You control what I see

My whole existence revolves around this cable to my mind
It's thought parole, population control
It's slavery of mankind

Under their control
And you're loving their control

Don't question the forces that govern your miserable life
Don't seek out the answers that void your empty life
Cause this melancholy vision is just a brief episode
In this game called reality
It's something I've been trying so hard to figure out

Ahh, something's wrong today
Ahh, as we watch the world decay
Ahh, maybe it'll all just go away
Ahh, maybe it all just ought to go away

02 LOST?

(1:46)

When I was young, America meant to me
The land of the beautiful, oh, and the land of the free
Now I look around, and all I see
Are Americans in poverty

We're all lost without a trace
We can't keep up, can't find our place
We're all lost without a clue
And our leaders never know what to do

Taking things slow, one step at a time
Making sure we get left behind
Dreams of success, well they're all gone
This American way of life, I've been robbed

We're all lost without a trace
We can't keep up, can't find our place
We're all lost without a clue
And our leaders don't know what to do

03 DRAG ME DOWN

(2:16)

You gave in to your vice so quickly
Now I die alone among these people I don't know
And faces I've not seen
Your masquerade it made me blind
Well now I see what I must do
I know where I must go, to run from

Tonight
We're gonna drag each other down again
We're gonna bring each other down
Tonight
We're gonna drag each other down again
We're gonna bring each other down

To make believe made it alright
To turn our heads the other way
Made it seem like we could try to hide from all
Well I'm sorry but I know this hole we dig for ourselves
Will bury everything we feel, and bury us

Tonight
We're gonna drag each other down again
We're gonna bring each other down
Tonight
We're gonna drag each other down again
We're gonna bring each other down

I cannot ignore, I cannot deny
I cannot feel at all, I cannot hide
Just another day, just another war
Just another time I must kill another part of me

We're gonna drag each other down again
We're gonna bring each other down
When all hope is lost, unable to be found
We'll find another single way to bring each other down
Drag each other down, drag each other down
Drag each other down

Drag each other down, drag each other down

04 IN HARM'S WAY

(2:32)

Your democracy's become a tattered vision of truth
Corporate sponsorship, raping and ruling the land
Do you think what you say will make it any better
It's been this way two hundred years, will stay this way forever

You made promises of health care still my teeth rot in my head
You once seemed so concerned now you left us all for dead
The unemployed, the uninsured, the homeless in the street
We're the ones that put you there, buddy you've got promises to keep

We won't survive, this road to power led by all your kings
It's time to wake up and take back what you have lost
And when it all falls from this malady
Spread from within, like the fall of Rome
It's happened once before, my friend, well here it comes again

This state we've built is a sick reflection of all that we've become
We've closed our eyes, been fed these lies
Do you know what your country's done
In the land of mad consumers free to spend at their own will
We're losing sight of what it means to be a free America

There's something wrong with me, there's something wrong with all of this
There's something wrong with you, there's something wrong with this
You cannot stand by, and watch them as they fuck up my life

There's something wrong with me, there's something wrong with all of this
There's something wrong with me, there's something wrong with you
Believe these lies, they'll lead you to a path in harm's way

05 TALKING TO MYSELF

(1:44)

Here I am today it seems I'm stoned once again
I wait for the people and things that ruin my day
Now I see the way, as I take another hit
I smoke another bong load and it seems I'm pretty lit

Talk about the things that no one ever wants to hear
Talk about the things in life that seem so unclear
Now I see the way, as I take another hit
I smoke another bong load and it seems I'm pretty lit
Hey, I can't take no more, and hey, now I'm stoned

These highs don't last so I can never hear the phone
Rather sit here and think about these things all alone
Now I see the way, as I take another hit
I smoke another bong load and it seems I'm pretty lit
Hey, I can't take no more, and hey, now I'm stoned

Music's up too loud once again I can never hear the phone
Now I'm stoned, so stoned

06 BROKEN

(2:10)

The secret, kept safely hid in your mind
Betrays you, when you look into my eyes

Broken are the bonds that used to bind you and I
Broken like a promise bred from your world of lies
Broken are the dreams, the ones you let slip away
Broken, broken, broken

Trust me, two words I've heard once before
Shelter, your eyes from all that is real

Broken and distorted, your reality within
Your fucked up little world's a shame of need and denial
I can't stand by and let you lead me through this path
It's broke, it's broken

Noises, the ones you hear in your mind
They lead you away from something that's real

Broken are the bonds that used to bind you and I
Broken like a promise bred from your world of lies
Broken are the dreams, the ones you let slip away
Broken, broken, broken

Broken and distorted, your reality within
Your fucked up little world's a shame of need and denial
I won't stand by and let you lead me through this path
It's broke, it's broken

07 ASHES

(2:35)

There's a blood stain on the floor by the door
Where your whole world fell and died
There's a silent chair in the corner of the room
Where you sat alone and cried

Well she got something to say to you
But the words never mean a thing
So she took that needle to her pain and set herself free

Burn
Burn it to the ground
Burn

When times got tough you got a little tougher
Then you slowly fell behind
Running to catch the things you could not see
Running to catch what you could not find
Well I never wanted to need you
Now it's time for you to see
This forgotten pain that you tried to hide
Buried in your apathy

Burn
Burn it to the ground
Burn
Burn it to the ground
Burn
Burn it to the ground
Burn
You gotta burn it to the ground

We burn
I burn
They burn

Burn all the things that you feel inside
Burn all the mother fucking walls that you build inside
Burn all the things that are slipping away
And then watch them fall to society

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The ashes are a symbol of what we used to trust
Burn all the things that are slipping away
Then burn everything that we fucking say
Burn all the dreams that you build inside
Yeah burn them all back to the ground, go

08 FAULTER

(2:41)

Do you believe there's hope for your kind
That your insatiable quest for direction
Will one day help you find
Veracity and meaning to your existence as a whole
That all your dreams of happy endings
Will be achieved with faith and sometimes

Do you feel that cold wind blowin you
Beyond all you think is right
Beyond all realm of human thought
Beyond your foolish thinking
One step ahead is one inch closer to the end
But means nothin at all, and sometimes

Now watch your cities fall
Now watch your gods come down
And deliver you from all that you've built
Your future's now a vision of your past
Soiled by all that you've killed
Hush your children now
There's no need to cry
We're building a future for you

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
We're building a future for you

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
We're building a future for you
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
We're killing a future for you
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
We're building a future for you

09 AWAY

(2:04)

Underneath the moon in a place far away
I know a land where we can run away
If you believe in me and you let me lead the way
I'll take away your pain, and I'll wish it all away

Away, so far away

I'll take you by the hand, tell you never to fear
In a world where we can be one so far away from here
We'll kiss the sky together, among the stars we will play
They'll never ever find us in our castle, far away

Away, so far away

Underneath the moon in a place far away
I know a world where we can run away
If you believe in me and you let me lead the way
I'll take away your pain, and I'll wish it all away

Away, so far away

Well I just can't seem to forget the places that I've been
You're really so far away
Why don't you help me understand the things I really fear
You're really so far away
When the words, they never come out right
You're really so far away
And the things you say never mean a thing
You're really so far away
When you look me straight in the eye
You're really so far away
And say everything's alright

Underneath the moon in a place far away
I know a world where we can run away
If you believe in me and you let me lead the way
I'll take away your pain, and I'll wish it all away

Away, away, away
So far away

10 ALONE

(2:19)

I'm alone, but you point your fingers and you laugh at me
And I thank God, that you are nowhere close to me
Because we're different, and you try so hard to alienate me
To go home, I'm alone and I can't escape

What do you know about being alone
Has life ever had a suicidal tone
No one wants to know me from this rep I own
I'm outside looking in, I'm alone

Help me, two words I don't know how to say
I'm in pain, but that's a message you can never convey
Hear me, and I've tried to make you understand
Without love, life will kill the strongest man

What do you know about being alone
Has life ever had a suicidal tone
No one wants to know me from this rep I own
I'm outside looking in

Think of all the friends that would be here today
If we'd only known the right words to say
Time has come and gone if they had only known
They couldn't go through life alone

What do you know about being alone
Has life ever had a suicidal tone
No one wants to know me for they slip right out
I'm outside looking in

Think of all the friends that would be here today
If we'd only known the right words to say
Time has come and gone if they had only known
They couldn't go through life alone

11 UNCLEAN

(2:34)

Centuries of wasted blood
They stain this war torn land
As our leaders look upon the sky
And await their next command

Why must we die
Why must we die for their cause

Termination's become the common way
To cleanse the blood found unclean
In the eyes of Christ, in the eyes of man
In the grasp of a God unseen

Why must we die
Why must we die for their cause

The sky has turned a crimson red
As the dead lie everywhere
There's christians, and there's catholics
And there's muslims and there's jews
Fighting for the name of God
For the color of their hate
When will we ever learn before it's too late

So tell me why we must die
Why we must die for their cause

Listen up
They try, they try, to drag you down
Try they always will
Try they try to pull you in, you must resist now

Time, slippin away
Centuries of wasted blood
Time, slippin away
Stain this war-torn land again
Time, slippin away
Leaders look upon the sky
Time, slippin away

You finance your atrocities with lives of those you swore to protect
In order to achieve strategic goals
How can your princes justify this misery set upon the land
Watch them change the course of your history
Watch them change the course of your history

12 MAD MAD WORLD

(2:22)

A friend is dead
You look so hard but you can't find a cause
What does it mean, in one brief moment a life is lost
What does it mean, a life of hurting, a life of chore
What does it mean, when all we leave is just a memory

It's a mad mad world
We're all doing time in a mad mad world
We're all left behind in a mad mad world
And all we leave is just a memory

I think about the things you said
Live each day like it was your last
I think about your life
And how it went by, it went by so fast
When you lose a friend it hurts
It hurts so bad, its hurts so fucking bad inside
Especially when that friend commits suicide

It's a mad mad world
We're all doing time in a mad mad world
We're all left behind in a mad mad world
And all we leave is just a memory

A friend is dead
You can look so hard to try and can't find a cause
What does it mean, in one brief moment and a life is lost
What does it mean, a picture's all I have, it's all I have
That's all I have, is your memory

It's a mad mad world
We're all doing time in a mad mad world
We're all left behind in a mad mad world

13 14 DAYS

(2:06)

My day begins with a sigh as I slowly feel awake
Then it's off to work thinkin how much shit will I have to take
It's been two weeks since I had a smile upon my face
I miss the days when all I knew fit in it's place

These 14 days, I killed myself alone
Through 14 days, tried so hard to understand
In 14 days, I'll never forgive you

My world came crashing down as I stood aside and watched
All the monsters in my head control everything I feel
I can see the door that traps me in this place
I can see the way outta here but I just can't find the key

Through 14 days, I killed myself alone
Since 14 days, tried so hard to understand
14 days, I'll never forgive you

Through 14 days, my world turned upside down
In 14 days, I tried so hard to understand
14 days, staggering through this place

In 14 days
