Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes

Keeping Out Of Direct Sunlight

We are the ones with the radiating eyes. We are the ones who have a fire inside. We are the ones only we can recognize. We’ve been rejected, suffered the ignorance, suffered the selfishness, been pushed so far down now comes our time to surface. Turn from the light, that made them all go blind. We’ve been protected. All arise to what we bring. Outstretched hands, unfolded wings. We’ve hurt ourselves, and I feel the sting of broken hearts and burning wings…

Three Reasons

Where were you? Say you were gone? Well, ask me and I’ll swear you were there all along. Another place? Another state? At any rate, I can’t relate. There’s no two ways, you’re a disgrace. Drown down your fear, suffocate every spark of clarity. Your weakness: sickens me, saddens me, strengthens me. There’s no way to free responsibility.

Who’s to blame? Who’s in the wrong? The truth from which you hide – it was you all along. You were there, you didn’t care, and your heart and mind were self impaired. Now, all that’s left is our despair. Drown down your fear, suffocate every spark of clarity. Your weakness: sickens me, saddens me, strengthens me. There’s no way to free responsibility. Drown down your fear, suffocate every spark of clarity. Your weakness: sickens me, saddens me, strengthens me. There’s no way to free responsibility.

A Single Second

Oh my God! My God this can’t be happening! God tell me, tell me this isn’t real! I can’t believe all that I have foreseen is finally happening. I cannot for a single second stand the way I feel. I always knew. I always saw it coming. Enveloped now, encased by my worst fear. I’ve never felt the nausea of longing to feel nothing, I never wanted to cease to exist, just disappear. Fear memories are all that lie ahead. (Memories dull my senses.) Never have I felt so lost. Fear tragedy is all that lies ahead. Never have I felt so dead.

Once felt so warm, now I’m fucking freezing. I am the once embraced abandoned one. I raised my eyes up to the light in hopes of finding healing; no relief was mine, I was burnt, by the sun. Fear memories are all that lie ahead. (Memories dull my senses.) Never have I felt so lost. Fear tragedy is all that lies ahead. (Memories dull my senses.) Never have I felt so dead. I feel so lost.

pH Low

So quickly draining away. If you could only hear all the things you used to say. Consumed now by what you knew was poisonous, quenching your thirst for life. Will you die, die for me? Will you live, live for me? Kill aspirations away. Embrace a dream that was a nightmare only yesterday. True friends forgotten and all hope’s been traded in, exchanging them all for what, for what, for what?

Will you die, die for me? Will you live, live for me? Die for me, you gave it all away, live for me, you gave it all away, all at once, you gave it all away, all is lost. Will you die, die for me? Die for me. Will you live, live for me? Live for me. Will you die, die for me? Die for me. Will you live, live for me? All is lost.

Let It Be Broke

I live in truth, complacently. Where’s the threat you see in me? Am I the cause of your self consciousness? You scream at me ’cause I can’t ignore the destructiveness that you support, ’cause my life’s contrary to yours. No soft words from my mouth. A glazed look in your eyes.  I live in the world of reality, you comfort yourself with lies.

I will release myself; I will detach myself from you. I will detach myself from your kind. I’ve seen your life, but I can’t see how it is that you can be so content in your own ignorance. It’s been so dark for so long now a new light has come along, illuminating all, so shut your eyes. I won’t tell you what you want to hear. I will show you what’s real. I will defy.

Third Season

Can you feel the pulse? Can you feel the heat rising from below? Can you feel the energy? It’s gaining strength, oh so slowly. But I’ll wait till the seasons change. I’ll wait till the fall comes. (Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!) Ohhh. And I’ll say, I’ll give you nothing but a mirthless laugh. Ohhh.

Can you see the signs? Can you sense the changing of the winds? Can you sense the stillness in the air? Calm will remain, oh so shortly. But I’ll wait till the seasons change. I’ll wait till the fall comes. (Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!) Ohhh. And I’ll say, I’ll give you nothing but a mirthless laugh. And I’ll say. Gonna take you by surprise as it rises. Gonna take you by surprise as it rises. Ohhh.. (Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey) Ohhh. And I’ll say, I’ll give you nothing but a mirthless laugh.

Lower Your Head and Take It In The Body

Drowned in flames is where I can be found, my nose broke from being smashed into the ground. What a waste, this place I call my home. Escape this place and break out on my own! I’m still reaching. Try to slap me down, but I’ll still hold. In the fray is where I can be found. My head is bruised from always being knocked around. What a fight, this life I call my own! Escape this life, and break out on my own! I’m still reaching! Try to slap me down, but I’ll still hold. I’ll hold…

Escape this life, and break out on my own! (My own) I’m still reaching! Try to slap me down, but I’ll still hold. I’ll hold my own! Escape this life, and break out on my own! (My own) I’m still reaching! Try to slap me down, but I’ll still hold! (I’ll hold!) I’m still reaching!

 

Coin Return

I have slipped and I have fallen so far down I can’t get out. Overwhelmed by my doubt. Things I said I’d never do I’ve done. Those I said I’d never be I’ve become. I have broken – I’m still breaking – cracked and wrecked, beyond repair. I can see that no one cares. Forgotten. Recalled. Smacks me in the face every time I fall. I cannot disregard, with each new fall I hit twice as hard. Would you be there for me? I would. I would be there for you. I would. Would you look up to see? I would. Falling forward and looking up.

The New Patron Saints and Angels

I’ve seen the light that emanates from you, and it makes me feel proud, a voice of reason above the muffling crowds. Such will to live and you’ve got so much to give, long lost sincerity. Lost in a world that’s been scorched to black. Lost in myself until I finally find. A guide in you, and gratitude is mine, I admire the way you shine.

Stare down the day from which others shield their eyes, with complete clarity, and no trace of apathy. So positive, and your heart you freely give, long lost vivacity. Lost in a world that’s been scorched to black. Lost in myself until I finally find.  A guide in you, and gratitude is mine, I admire the way you shine.

Three Seconds Notice

Submission- My back hurts from bowing down. Attraction – Was once so strong now can’t be found. Affection – One gift I wish you would return. Frustration – as I accede. I do not deserve your frigidness, such callousness, yet I persist. What’s wrong with me? I told you “you can’t be replaced”, you showed me I’m disposable. Spit in my face as I submit, so I quit!

Salt For Your Wounds

There’s a tear in my heart where the blood ran out. There’s a tear in my heart where the love ran out. I thought we worked, pushed toward the same ends, I’ll never be so quick to trust again. Disenchanted, disgusted, I regret that I trusted.  I put my faith. My faith in you, you poisoned me through and through. I though we both shared the same injuries. Now I’ve found it’s you who injures me. My heart is cracked from being left out in the cold. I know you’ll pay for what you’ve taken – tenfold. Disenchanted, disgusted, I regret that I trusted. I put my faith. My faith in them, they twisted the knife further in.

Today’s Lesson (Original lyrics by Filth)

Here is your lesson for today, you better listen up real fucking good! My cloud always has a silver lining, and I love everything that I see. My world is wonderful and no one could ever, ever hurt me. My cloud always has a silver lining, and I love everything that I see. My world is wonderful and no one could ever, ever hurt me. You hate yourself, you do, you hate yourself, you do, you hate yourself, you do. That’s why, right now I hate you. So right now I hate you.

My cloud always has a silver lining, and I love everything that I see. My world is wonderful and no one could ever, ever hurt me. My cloud always has a silver lining, and I love everything that I see. My world is wonderful and no one could ever, ever hurt me. You hate yourself, you do, you hate yourself, you do, you hate yourself, you do. That’s why, right now I hate you. So right now I hate you.

Have you learned your lifes lesson yet? No? Well let me tell you something. I am your teacher. You have a lot to learn from me. You must love yourself. You are my teacher. Lots to learn from you, can’t hurt myself to sit still. That’s why, right now I love you… You hate yourself, you do, you hate yourself you do, you hate yourself you do. That’s why, right now I love you. So fuck you.

The Devil Loves You

Do you understand what I’m trying to say? Have you ever felt? Ever felt this way? Tainted with rage you can’t drain away or it will cost you your life. I couldn’t care more. Do you ever absorb what shouldn’t be touched? Have you ever cared? Ever cared this much? Do you think it is I who is out of touch, or are you too scared to think at all? I couldn’t care more. As your friends fall does it tear your heart? Do tears fill your eyes as your world falls apart? Do you notice at all, or are you sailing sublime? Am I completely alone?

Triple Zero

It burns! It burns! It burns my eyes and throat, but I need no antidote. Gnawing and tearing at my insides – seething, keeping me alive – hatred poisons me through and through – a sustenance – keeping me true. It’s not too late. It’s never gonna be too late. Embrace your hate. The pain! The pain it crushes me. I gain animosity. Acid sweat and bloody tears, through it all I persevere. Some sedate through indifference but I withheld zero tolerance.
