Track Name: Straight Jacket
feeling like I am going insane
things don't look about the same way
people say that I'm going mad
this chick this girl is insane

I do not understand what you say
just because I like to play with them
no one knows what they're going to do

they put me in a straight jacket

when I hear them I will do it
these loud voices have me movin'

feeling numb I'm walking down the halls
I pass a girl and she way lookin' at me
where I'm I at and what did I do?

they put me in a straight jacket

no one will ever know
why I'm I so insane

they put me in a straight jacket
a straight jacket
a straight jacket
a straight jacket
a straight jacket
a straight jacket
a straight jacket
Track Name: The Virus
the virus it comes it sucks us alive
wanting us dead and we don't know why
the virus it comes it sucks us alive
the virus it comes it sucks us alive

we shall never be cured
the virus it kills
we shall never be cured
so help us

our eyes are black and we cannot see
our ears are plugged and we cannot hear

the virus it comes it sucks us alive
we shall never be cured
this virus it kills
we shall never be cured
so help us

the virus (times 8)

the virus it comes it sucks us alive
wanting us dead and we don't know why
the virus it comes it sucks us alive
the virus it comes it sucks us alive

the virus it comes it sucks us alive
wanting us dead and we don't know why
the virus it comes it sucks us alive
it sucks you alive
it sucks us alive
it sucks you alive
Track Name: Ha Ha Ha
crawl to me if you want me bad
your soul is now mine
you will never leave
you never took the time
my darkest lullaby
you pay the highest price
I'll never wash away

I have you now where I want you to be

HA HA HA

if you get out of line
I'll whip you up straight

HA HA HA

now that you are back
my darkest lullaby
you pay the highest price
now suffer under me

HA HA HA

now it's done
you will never leave

HA HA HA
Track Name: Low Frequency
you hide a secret from me
I can sense it deep inside
you try to cover up the holes
but I shall always dig them out

you think you think you're so slick
but you are just plain sick
don't underestimate me
I know you're a snake

please don't hesitate to slit my throat
cause you don't want me to speak my mind

you think you think you're so slick
but you are just plain sick
don't underestimate me
I know you're a snake

come to and lie, lie to me!
come to and lie, lie to me!

it seems to
their repertoire say
as they're are walking by
will see
what can tell
your eyes just penetrate
and I sing to you
I scream out to you

come to and lie, lie to me!
Track Name: Media Slaves
strange days they are coming
they are coming
they are coming once again
strange days
strange days
are coming once again

everyone will fear
they fear the facts that they
that they cannot change
propaganda reigns
they want to inject it
they inject it into our brains
they inject it
they inject it
they inject it into our brains

we are slaves
we are lost
we are prisoners

strange days they are coming
they are coming
they are coming once again
strange days
strange days
are coming once again

we are fed off the television
we're spoon fed half the truth
they want to shove it in our mouths
till we can't speak our minds
they want to plump us up
so we won't move
we are numb
we are numb
so they can puncture us

we are slaves
we are lost
we never intervene
for that we shall pay

we have fallen down the rabbit hole
and where will come out nobody knows
the media walls are closing down
are closing down on us

strange days they are coming
they are coming
they are coming once again
strange days
strange days
are coming once again
did you know
strange days
are coming once again
strange days
strange days are coming

we are slaves
till are ending
we are slaves
we are slaves
'til our ending days
WE ARE SLAVES
Track Name: Broken
this is another love story gone wrong
what entails that one was too rough
the other too soft
her core was delicate
she was a happy young thing
he sucked it out of her

twenty-one with no hope
my faith was shattered
the one I loved killed all my every desires
now that you say want me back
little to late you cannot have me now

I built an immunity
to your cold cold ways
so I must send you on your way, your way
even though you say you love me so
sorrow caresses my soul
my heart beats for freedom

twenty-one with no hope
my faith was shattered
the one I loved killed all my every desires
now that you say want me back
little to late you cannot have me now

broken hearted misery

twenty-one with no hope
my faith was shattered
the one I loved killed all my every desires
now that you say want me back
little to late you cannot have me now

it goes on...
Track Name: Fire Escape
there will be no fire escape
no fire escape from hell
the devil oh he is after you
so you cannot run and hide

you want it you got it
you simply hold the flame
oh what is it to want
oh what is it to feel
you want it you got it
you simply hold the flame

your heart is torn
your ego is fed
and ya tend to go the wrong way
the rising rush with the sins you commit
your light will be cut off
so what I say to you and your kind
you live it up with a touch
the lustful hands
the flick of the match
the fire will burn up

you want it you got it
you simply hold the flame
oh what is it to want
oh what is it to feel
you want it you got it
you simply hold the flame
the power
the fame
the sorrow
the pain
you want it you got it
you simply hold the pain
oh what
you feel
the sorrow, the pain
you want it you got it
you simply hold the flame

you sinned you sinned
you sinned your life away


There will be no fire escape
no fire escape from hell
the devil oh he is after you
so you cannot run and hide

and lead us to stray

don't be afraid

so you cannot be afraid
running down, it's running wild
I can't believe what I see is going on
so you cannot be afraid

well I say

shadows are playing games with my head
what I see I rather no
I am terrified indeed
shadows have cruel intentions all around
they dannce around when they see
I'm troubled with what I see

shadows

I see them
I see them everywhere I go
I tell them to go away
these silent figures are draining me
shadows why are they so intimidating
I don't want to see them no more
get the hell away from me

shadows

it's been intense
this is has been unbearable
the tv on
I couldn't sleep
it's been three days
my eyes are bloodshot
I wanna sleep a thousand days


shadows are playing games with my head
help me
help me see the light of day
help me see the light of day
help me see the light of day

Track Name: Suicide Bridge
I have reached my boiling point
the world has disapointed me
it's knocked me down and
turned me around
I'll never see the light of day
for obstacles are thrown my way
the fight is vicious

triumph never increases
but they do not understand
it's slowly killing me

I'm going to the suicide bridge
it's calling me
I'm going to the suicide bride
it's calling me

I am not a little girl
I do not play with toys
I wish I can go back to those
carefree days when I ran wild
but now the world is telling me
that I should grow up
the world so cruel
the world so mean
oh it's killing me


I'm going to the suicide bridge
it's calling me
I'm going to the suicide bride
it's calling me

no
I will stand tall and
leave the night to grace
this is slowly ruining my life
crooked
the world's so crooked

now I am on top looking down
will I jump?

oh no this is not my time
the angel came down
and pushed me aside
he opened my eyes and
said look around
there's plenty of goodness to go around
I felt a shock in me
I saw the light
this angel brought me down to my knees
I see the light
well yeah I see it good
these obstales will never bring me down
