When I'm Drinkin' Whiskey lyrics

"When I'm Drinkin' Whiskey" LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

When I'm drinkin whiskey, I know nothin can go wrong, 

When I'm drinkin whiskey, only time my mind is strong, 

When I got my bottle is when I'm standin tall, 

When I'm drinkin whiskey, I don't feel nothin at all, 

When I'm good and drunken, can't nobody bring me down, 

I like to drink my whiskey when nobody is around, 

I know my empty bottle is the only one that understands, 

When I'm drinkin whiskey, I forget the man I am, 

When I'm drinkin whiskey my hands don't ever shake, 

When I'm drinkin whiskey I don't lay in bed awake, 

Cause when I got my bottle, I don't care if I'm alive, 

Cause when I'm drinkin whiskey, I ain't afraid to die,

Cause when I'm drinkin whiskey, I ain't afraid to die. 

Ain't The Man lyrics

"Ain’t The Man" 

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

 

I gather my sins in a gunny sack, way down the side of the scale, 

when it meets the ground, a sickening sound, I’ll await that trumpets wail, 

with a fist of mud right before my judge, may he lay his glory on me, 

a verdict passed with an audible laugh, I know what the score will be, 

 

Was a time I tried, and many I lied, there were plenty of them by and by, 

But I don’t expect to stretch out my neck, these reasons I’ll tell you why, 

 

I ain’t the man that you want me to be x 4

 

No, I ain’t the man, I ain’t the man that you want me to be, 

because the life I lead, one of strife and greed, 

I can’t break that hold on me. 

Oh no I ain’t the man, I ain’t the man that you want me to be, 

cause I dance with the devil and I gamble with God,

I ain’t the man that you want me to be. 

 

There been them nights I prayed for change, that fear I never could, 

There been them days I stayed the same and I knew I never would, 

There been them weeks when all was bleak, buddy, drink that bottle brown, 

there been there years with a lack of tears, that wall came crashing down, 

 

Well I’m the son of a farmer, a low down charmer, I can cheat my way in cards, 

I done stabbed my fingers, I’m an off key singer when I play that broke guitar, 

And well I can talk, I been around the block, I can lift my Lord on high, 

But I wouldn’t take a chance if you want romance, and these reasons I’ll tell you why, 

 

I ain’t the man that you want me to be x 8

 

No, I ain’t the man, I ain’t the man that you want me to be, 

because the life I lead, one of strife and greed, 

I can’t break that hold on me. 

Oh no I ain’t the man, I ain’t the man that you want me to be, 

cause I dance with the devil and I gamble with God,

I ain’t the man that you want me to be. 

 

The Devil's Song lyrics

"The Devi’s Song" 

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

 

Casted out like dying seeds upon the ground, 

single file our marches echo through the trees,

we left no crumbs of bread to lead our way back home again, 

Past the point of no returning, should we please, 

 

And we all sang the devil’s song and sank into the night, 

Saying God damn It might be wrong but at the time it all feels right, 

and my my, how time flies, what are we living for? 

And we all cried, at least we tried, and drank a little more. 

 

We dawn our new born face and toss all masks aside, 

among our new born kin, got nothin left to hide, 

so pierce the flesh, our sacrament begins to grow, 

and one by one into the darkness we all go. 

 

And by the black wing of the raven, we take our flight, 

Hold true to the laws of the Devil’s rite, 

By the power of the sigil we made this pact,

as the children of Cain, as the souls of black, 

as the fang of the serpent, head of the ram, 

Consume Almighty through the blood of the lamb, 

With the star of the morning to bring us the light, 

and the eyes of the fallen to give us our sight to see. 

 

So pass the chalice of that bitter tasting wine, 

we’re gowned from head to toe in all midnight attire, 

This growing moon, it brings us closer to the time, 

so raise that skull of high and dance around the fire, 

And we all sang the devil’s song and sank into the night, 

Saying God damn It might be wrong but at the time it all feels right, 

and my my, how time flies, what are we living for? 

And we all cried, at least we tried, and drank a little more. 

 

Here’s to knowledge we take from fruit, 

progress with the heresy, it stems from the root, 

Here’s to lies, forgotten goodbyes, 

May we all take a sip, the Almighty arise, 

Chant with vigor, find the truth, 

with the cries of the night bring the final sooth, 

And the star of the morning to bring us the light, 

and the eyes of the fallen should it give us our sight to see. 

 

Already have we all been damned, born of the blood that our god condemned, 

shunned by the ones who set the standard of right, 

with a skewed newer view of proverbial sleight, 

It is we who went against the settling stone 

as the waters of the mass wash us down to the bone, 

It is we, the burdened by original sin, 

who understand the weight of our fate, let us begin,

so as we bask in the black new void of the night, 

move past every last limitation from sight, 

In the bleak of the soil where the seed is sewn,

if the remnants remain the the tree can grow, 

if the spring should allow of the tree to flower, 

well then the song of the seed only grows in power, 

and the power of the song makes strong its calling, 

cause the calling is the cry of the one who’s fallen, 

All hail, to Ye who we sing this song, 

For through he we are free from bond, 

All hail, to Ye who has made us free, 

who brings light by of which we see, 

All hail, to the lightened mighty glow, 

that of which brings the power to know, 

All hail to enlightenment the knowledge will bring, 

All hail to the lord, that of which we sing, 

So we shed all doubt for the hour has come, 

Praise be for the year is one, 

We shed all doubt brought upon with fear, 

Praise be for the Lord is here, 

We shed all doubt for the lives we give, 

Praise be for the Lord shall live, 

And we shed all doubt, you can hear his call, 

for in the end It is judgement that defeats us all. 

 

And we all sang the devil’s song and sank into the night, 

Saying God damn It might be wrong but at the time it all feels right, 

and my my, how time flies, what are we living for? 

And we all cried, at least we tried, and drank a little more. 

Requiem of the Crazies Lyrics

"Requiem of the Crazies" 

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

 

It’s kinda hard being a bum in this town, where the kids run wild, running all around, 

We go by behind without a sound, and we all got stories to tell, 

Put a penny in the cup, you might hear us moan, 

Im just a dollar short of catching the Grey Hound home, 

and God bless you sir, you won’t see me no more,

cause Ill be drunk behind the Jiffy store, 

 

But I’m gonna get straight if it’s the last thing I can bare, 

I’d get my life together if someone would care, 

And if I should die before my time is through, 

Tell all the people who I was. 

 

On a bench, sour stench, clutching my booze, 

a pair of swiss cheese socks and tore up shoes,

whiskey breath, dumpster chef, next to taco bell, 

I dropped my aspirations down a wishing well, 

Drunkin stance, piss my pants, piano key teeth, 

All these things will blind you from the man beneath, 

I’m not a fool, I been to school, I’ve read Sun Tzu,

You see us bums are people too.

 

So I’m back in jail, I can’t make bail, I get my three square meals,

Oh, how I’ve forgotten how a bed and pillow feels, 

I’ll take a breath, there’s nothing left, 

I lay my head, the bible said,

“To all those weary I will give you rest”

 

But I’m gonna get straight if it’s the last thing I can bare, 

I’d get my life together if someone would care, 

And if I should die before my time is through, 

Tell all the people who I was. 

 

On the streets, where I sleep, Bullet is my name, 

You see, I lost my wife and child and the whiskey is to blame, 

So I been teaching gospels to the crazies on the curb, 

Among all these people I’ll achieve my fame, 

Cause I can’t get a job cause the dirt on my face, 

I can’t find no food or a resting place, 

I ain’t a bad guy, Lord knows I try, 

And I’ll probably rot here in the ally where I die, 

 

I’m gonna get straight if it’s the last thing I can bare, 

I’d get my life together if someone would care, 

And if I should die before my time is through, 

Tell all the people who I was. 

All The Fish Will Be Floating Lyrics

"All The Fish Will Be Floating" 

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

 

They say the world is broken, I guess it could be, 

All the fish should be floating on top of the sea, 

I remember the days when I was young and all alone, 

on my bedside with hands clasped together, 

well I won’t do that no more, 

 

Cause I aint praying no more,

and I staying no more, 

and I aint worshiping no one, 

and I aint firing no gun, 

 

Apathy is a killer at heart, it enters your brain, it brings you no pain, 

Apathy are the idols hands of life, forget all your trouble, forget all your strife,

 

and I aint looking no more,

and I aint cooking no more, 

and I aint stealing no more, 

and I aint feelin no more,

and I aint thinking no more,

and I aint drinking no more, 

and I aint lying no more, 

and I aint trying no more, 

 

Apathy is a dangerous tool, too much of empathy will make you a fool,

Apathy blinds your eyes from everything, has nothing to bring from the words that I sing, 

Apathy, distracting what we see, trivial and useless technology, 

Apathy, how seductively it calls, and now that I have it, I don’t want it at all. 

 

I remember Nazi Germany back in 1939, what a wonderful time, 

when the future was bleak they all just turned the other cheek, 

does it please you to say that everything is okay, 

what the hellcan I say, cause it doesn’t really matter, 

No it doesn’t really matter at all, 

 

And I aint writing no more, 

and I aint fighting no more, 

and I aint reading no more, 

and I aint bleeding no more, 

And I aint learning no more, 

and I aint burning no more, 

and I aint seeing no more, 

and I aint fleeing no more, 

and I aint helping no more, 

and I aint voting no more, 

and I aint choosing no more, 

and I aint losing no more, 

and I aint winning no more, 

and I aint sinning no more, 

Aint doing nothing no more, 

I ain’t nothin no more, 

 

Apathy infects us like disease,

enough of the caring, we do what we please, 

Apathy, Ill take for any cost, 

and when it’s all over, 

All hope is lost. 

Shame Lyrics

"Shame"

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

 

Shame, Shame, what kind of man could I be, 

played your mind, played your heart, 

I played it all for me, 

kept you frightened, kept you fighting, 

for something you would never see,

kept you trying, left you crying,

oh baby I could never let you free,

 

Cry, Cry, Sing your dying sound, 

I know I will only bring you down, 

Shame, Shame, what kind of man could I be, 

Shame, Shame, What kind of man could I be, 

Kept you frightened, kept you fighting,

for something you would never see,

kept you trying, left you crying, 

but I could never let you free, 

Shame Shame, what kind of man could I be, 

Shame Shame, what kind of man could I be, 

 

Cry, Cry, Sing your dying sound, 

I know I will only bring you down, 

Shame, Shame, what kind of man could I be,

Shame, Shame, what kind of man could I be, 

Shame, Shame, What kind of man could I be, 

Parasomnia Lyrics

"Parasomnia"

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

 

You say you had a nightmare, reoccurring dreams of a summer last year, 

Now normally that ain’t none of my business girl, until you start having them dreams over here, 

Won’t you try a little harder, to recall what you did that night, 

don’t try to play it off like it’s one of those dreams, say those things to make it alright, 

 

You see your friends they taunt me, try to explain the way you feel, 

They say you think you feel you want me, But what you say you think will make me ill, 

 

Why don’t I believe you, that you could speak and act in your sleep,

breathing heavy while your shaking, slightly stirring while you weep, 

 

You’re quite the piece of art girl, prettiest thing that I had ever seen, 

but you got a wicked heart girl, and your words can be awful mean, 

why would you speak of such a story if not it true, but it don’t make no sense to me, 

don’t make me a fool to believe in you, just tell me the truth and then let me be, 

you directed me to my own destruction, I only acted on your lead, 

and with a phone calls interruption, thats when you had to up and leave, 

 

You see your friends they taunt me, they try to explain the way you feel, 

they say you think you feel you want me, but what you say you think will make me ill,

I know what we did was unjust, the acts we took before the act you didn’t make, 

but if you claim to be parasomnia, exactly what time did you awake.

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

 

In my time of dying, don’t want no cry, 

all I want for you to do is take me when I die,

So I can die easy, well well well x 4

 

Meet me Jesus, meet me, in the middle of the air,

if these wings should fail me lord, won’t you meet me with another pair,

What They Said Lyrics

"What They Said"

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

 

I left my home for the weekend, and the safety of my bed,

my life is secure, my opinions validated,

I feel special in my head,

The world outside seems so shitty,

all the people try to bring me down,

I thought that I was perfect 

and I thought that they would love me,

but instead they only try to offend,

I can’t believe what they said,

 

Well sometimes criticism is given, 

it’s the one true fact about the world we live in,

you can choose to accept or reject critique, 

there’s a risk that you take every time you speak,

if you shout your opinions in a public place,

well then they might just shout right back in your face,

if you think that you’re safe guess again my friend,

because sometimes life’s just got to offend, 

 

My mother told me she loves me and she’d always hold my hand, 

she told me that my feelings were the only thing that mattered,

but nobody seems to understand,

 

Not everything is gonna be about you,

cause the world keeps turning whether with or without you,

you can cry your griefs about what you believe,

but don’t expect anyone to see the way you see,

don’t expect anyone to feel the way you feel,

when the flack that you’re fed is a three course,

offense is never given it can only be taken,

when the age of outrage comes to break you down,

 

All the agendered, bigendered, non and cis gendered,

pan, demisexual, trans, and misgendered, 

plantkin, otherkin, dragons and therions, 

muslims, satanists, jews and christians,

black skin, white skin, yellow and brown,

we all got people trying to put us down,

and word is only strong as the power we give it,

we can censor it out, or we can learn to live with it, 

 

I left my home for the weekend, 

I left the safety of my comfortable bed,

I had to talk to people different from me,

and I just can’t believe what they said,

I can’t believe what they said

Bone To Pick Lyrics

"Bone To Pick"

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

 

You say you got problems girl

Well I got em too

You say you got problems baby

Well we all got problems too

Yea, but you can cry all night now sugar

After what you put me through 

 

So cry now for the life you lack, 

spread your fears when its holding you back, 

you know you can’t change and you’re feeling the pain,

well we all got something that can take the blame, 

you were born under a bad sign, lack of privilege, 

the upper hand was never something that you lived with, 

so raise your fists and stomp your feet, 

fight for the cause then take a seat, 

 

Why can’t anybody let me be,

and oh, how I love to cry,

Woe is me,

 

Because it feels like the world is stabbing in my back, 

Everybody’s got to have a bone to pick, 

Got my straw man standing ready too conflict, 

Everybody’s got to have a bone to pick, 

Ah huh

 

Don’t you know there’s people out there, 

who don’t got a cent to their name, 

I said there’s people out there honey, 

who don’t got a cent to their name, 

yea and you’re walking in the streets now,

looking for someone you can blame, 

 

Locked down by the PC police,

knocked down trying to get my release, 

the blood hounds always hot on the trail,

for the next petty issue they can mark for sale,

all the first world victimized profiteers,

just collect your tears then they oil the gears,

cause when you’re sad, you’re mad,

when you’re mad, you rage, 

and your rage makes you click upon the internet page,

and when you click upon the page

everybody gets paid,

and the sheep all flock to the false charade,

when it dies away they just do it again, 

cause where you’re freedoms end

that’s where their feelings begin, 

whenever speaking your mind becomes a crime

I find it’s better doing the time 

than living vocally blind,

you know control of your words 

is control of your thoughts,

well god damn, I think I’d rather be shot.

 

Why can’t anybody let me be,

and oh, how I love to cry,

Woe is me,

 

Because it feels like the world is stabbing in my back, 

Everybody’s got to have a bone to pick, 

Got my straw man standing ready too conflict, 

Everybody’s got to have a bone to pick, 

Ah huh

Two Handed Knife Game Song Lyrics

"Two Handed Knife Game Song" 

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

Oh, I bet I can stab my fingers better than you,
cause five finger fillet is something I like to do,
and if you think that you can beat me give it a try,
but if you hit your fingers than you'll probably die,
oh chop chop chop chop chop chop chop
I'm picking up the speed,
and if I hit my fingers than my hand will start to bleed.

The Blindfolded Knife Game Song Lyrics

"Blindfolded Knife Game Song"

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

Oh, I don't need to see my hand, 
that's because I understand, 
where I'm gonna stab my knife,
what am I doing with my life, 

I play five finger fillet, 
blinded from the light of day, 
every stab is just a guess,
this could be a bloody mess,

Faster, faster, here we go,
what am I doing? I DONT KNOW,
If my finger does get hit,
this is gonna hurt like shit

The Knife Flip Song Lyrics

"The Knife Flip Song"

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

Oh I like to flip my knife, flip it in the air,
where will it land, well I really don't care, 
cause there's blood on the knife, 
there's blood on the blade,
I bet you probably think that I'm afraid,

When I flip my knife once, 
Flip my knife twice, 
When I flip it two times, well it feels kinda nice,
but there's blood on the knife, 
There's blood on the blade, 
I bet you probably think that I'm afraid.

When I flip my knife once, 
Flip my knife twice, 
I flip it three times and I'm fearing for my life, 
cause there's blood on the knife, 
There's blood on the blade, 
I bet you probably think that I'm afraid,

When I flip my knife once, 
Flip my knife twice, 
Flip it three times,
then four, thats right!
There's blood on the knife, 
there's blood on the blade, 
I bet you probably think that I'm insane.

The Mysterious Stranger

"The Mysterious Stranger" 

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

 

Travelled up the country from a town down south where the laws are governed by a lack of fiction. 

He was a man of supreme extravagance sent to us to test our human contradiction. 

 

He was just a mysterious stranger with the supernatural claim to raise the dead, 

he sang a song of his redemption, he sang a song of seven sins that plague the dead,

soulless sings when sorry brings us down. 

 

You could believe nothing’s set in stone, anything could change the way you see by what is known,

for when the light shines bright on the right side, you’re left blind to the blight that the shadow hides, 

but what is your perspective? could you acclimate the empathy enough to try and respect it?

To praise god as a menacing host, just to crucify the devil when he needed us most,

Throw stones, break bones, You can take your turn, but is it all right? FUCK IT! let em burn. 

 

Jesus cried inside the manger, but his tears were never once written about. 

Was he weeping hallelujah or was he weeping for the sins he lived without.

Take my sword down to the river, may the waters wash above my weary head.

The river rests and the river wakes, the river calms and the river breaks, 

the river gives and the river takes you to it’s bed, 

soulless sings, when sorry brings us down. 

 

These people really know how to take, 

they understand forgiveness when they make a mistake, 

they understand strife and the value of life, 

but forget to ever stop and question whether its right. 

we’re subject to reality, reality of that which is subjective,

and act upon the fact that we know best as a collective, 

remedy the enemy the populous picks, 

and implement a prejudice to stir up the mix, 

how strong are your convictions that a heaven exists?

is it enough to sacrifice the choice of life to persist?

Always knowing that your crowing keeps you safe and snug, 

life is easy sweeping underneath the rug. 

But deep down we know the truth about death,

when it finally comes we know there aint nothin left,

because god is indifferent, nobody is innocent, 

and we invent the definition of the infinite. 

I can do whats right, and I try, but if you want god?

then FUCK IT, let em die

 

Death never waits, follow me down

Down to the gate, Follow me down

Don’t hesitate, Follow me down

Heaven awaits, follow meeeeee Down

Soulless sings when sorry brings us down

Adipocere

"Adipocere"

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

Quickly moving in the morning 'fore the corpse gets cold, 
doesn't matter whether young or old,
up the mountain now we make our climb,
everybody knows it's feeding time, 
and so they sharpen the knives, sharpen the blades,
close your eyes, It'll be okay. 

Lets take a walk to where the vultures roam, 
Feast upon the bodies, clean them down to the bone, 
Strip away the cartilage and rip out the eyes,
This is what will happen to you when you die,
Adipocere x 4

Find the mortician with the bag on his head, 
watch him as he slices bits of flesh off the dead, 
drinks away his whiskey as a means to atone, 
He's never sober, he can't do it alone, 
and so he sharpens his knife, sharpens his blade,
close your eyes, it'll be okay.

Lets take a walk to where the vultures roam, 
feast upon the body clean em down to the bone, 
strip away the cartilage and rip out the eyes, 
this is what will happen to you when you die, 
seven hundred winged creatures waiting in line, 
sixty seven eyes are focused watching them dine, 
seven of the brethren are turning their heads, 
this is how the village people burry their dead, 
Adipocere x 4

LYRICS and Chords

Capo on 3rd.

 

Intro - Em B

 

Chorus:

 

The lies of flies and then we die as quickly as we’re born 

Em                                                B

 

nothing that we make is taken, happiness or scorn 

Em                       B

 

if every hope abandons you, there’s peace in that you know

  Em                         A                      B

 

when you hit rock bottom, there’s just one way left to go

Em                                              C        B       Em

 

 

Verse 1:

 

I woke up when I hit the ground without a penny to my name

Em                           B

 

I threw away the only love I got and hung my head in shame

Em                        B

 

when I had nothing I remembered what I need

Em                                 B

 

I bought no joy material, just fodder for my greed

Em                   C         B         Em

 

 

Rap 1:  ChordsEmB x5AmEmAmB

 

You got this, anything you needed to survive 

the addition is the mission that you be accessorized 

but it’s all a pack of lies, you know that it’s true

if you don’t commoditize tell me what will you do

Is everything you’re wearing the extension of self?

every action that you’re taking for progression of wealth?

If you didn’t have a color TV how would you see?

If you didn’t have a social life then who would you be?

Cause everybody wants, and thinks they need

whether internet, cell phone, or blood you bleed

but only one of the three are gonna keep you alive

tell me, how far car can you get without the car you drive

They tell us that we need it, but really we don’t

they say buy what we sell but you can tell them you won’t

If you ever see the day that you’re finally done

could you give it all away if the time should ever come?

 

Chorus

 

Rap 2:

 

Now intrinsic as it seems, it’s really just a fallacy

everything is challenging its all about balancing

cause when you try to have a peace of mind

it ain’t hard to find, I want a piece of what’s mine

so fuck the time, everything will come eventually

essentially the only thing to hold you back is chemistry 

cause what we put in our bodies is what we put in our brain

and if the mix isn’t perfect than it can make you insane 

so tell me who’s the one to blame

every man, woman, child, if they think the same

every docile action, distraction from our passion 

every session of aggression if you lack satisfaction 

they tell us that we need it, but really we don’t 

they say buy what we sell but you can tell em you won’t

if you ever see the day that you’re finally done

could you give it all away if the time should ever come?  

 

The Lies of Love (This Is Not a Love Song) Lyrics

"The Lies of Love"

LYRICS

by Rusty Cage

 

It's true that sometimes intuition ties the blinding folds

To contemplate not what, but why the way the mind can go

Sometimes it plays the heart, it's so lovely at the start

But when the walls come crashing down I take it all apart

Arise my jaded cynicism, analyzing criticism  

Every thought so skeptical, no mysteries are left at all

No silly romance fantasies are really how they're hoped to be

No this is not a song of love, just so damn reminiscent of it all. 

 

Chorus: 

Whoow, intention. When you leave these things behind, I can't open up my mind at all. 

Whoow, intention. Well I know, I know that love ain't real but I can't deny the way I feel. I'd like to say I'll find the day when no more will I feel this way, and if I never, very well. But only tests of time can tell. Indulge the moment and then it's gone, but never for too very long. No this is not a song of love just so damn reminiscent of it all.  

 

Verse 2. 

The fight to strive, genetic drive, those early days of man. Replication and survive, to act not understand. For every lost potential mother kills you from within, for fear of life's own preservation starts to settle in. Well I know it gets confusing and I know it's worth a try. When instinct tells you how to act but just wont tell you why. As single souls are drawn together, passionate and blind. Just keep this simple thought in mind, that love is just a concept for the times.

LYRICS and Chords

Capo on 5th fret

 

Verse 1

There is an old tradition, a game we all can play

           C                                                                   G

you start by getting liquored up and sharpening your blade

        G                                                                                       C

You take a shot of whiskey, you grab your knife and pray

         C                                                                                     F

And Spread apart your fingers, and this is what you say

          F                              C                     G                          C

 

Chorus

Oh,  I have all my fingers, the knife goes chop chop chop

        C                                                                                     G

If I miss the spaces in between, my fingers will come off

      G                                                                                        C

And If I hit my fingers, the blood will soon come out

         C                                                                              G

But all the same I play this game cause thats what its all about

       G                                                                                               C

 

Verse 2

o you can't use a pencil, you can not use a pen

the only way is with a knife when danger is your friend

And some may call it stupid, some may call it dumb

but all the same we play this game because it's so damn fun

 

Chorus

Oh, I have all my fingers, the knife goes chop chop chop

if I miss the spaces in between, my fingers will come off

and if I hit my fingers, the blood will soon come out

but all the same I play this game cause that's what its all about

Oh, chop chop chop chop chop chop chop

I'm picking up the speed

and if I hit my fingers then my hand will start to bleed

Capo on 4th fret

Chords:  Am   E    F    F   (this progression repeats throughout the song)

 

Some people make it a habit of not working on the sabbath, waking up the next morning to pray. and whether it be a life revision, or a color television, thanking jesus they'll receive it one day. some people pull their optimism over their eyes just pretending that they know what to do, and I know im slightly rusty, girl youre gonna have to trust me, keep a realistic point of view. 

Well scarcely can I blame them cause its hard enough to name them but you see them everyday on TV . So take a walk with me and understand whose in command and let it pan the left and the right, sufficient tonight, omniscient I might, keep you in my sight. don't let yourself slip, tossing in the dice starts with losing your grip. So forsake your only baby maybe you can get away before the sun begins to pick up the dew, woman keep it in your vision its a hard enough decision keep a realistic point of view

If you're leaving my sight, you had better open your eyes, and take my hand by the end of the night. If I should ever lay you down, lay you down

 Rap

Its as simple as at monasteries, clasping your hands, living life a loading level prior to the promise land, so my man, stop the waiting and debating "whats next?". perplexed and yes the entire situations a mess, so progress, finesse, final insinuation whats left, and the best i guess i missed, wait, I lift it, the tide that drifts it may not fix it, for fear of fierce fire fury fights for the wicks, kid. triple six did the trick to shatter the brain and sustain the painful knowledge that the future will bring, yea but (you know) i say fuck it, do what though wilt. not opposed to all the choices that Iscariot felt. consider this a warning, you'll envision by the morning but its better just to think it through. with your pupils dilated and your mind on what i stated keep a realistic point of view.

bridge:

poor jesus, mother mary, heavens closed today

saint peter, saint peter, turn my soul away

mother mary, poor jesus, let us try again

holy father, spirit within, send another son to us to die for our sin

Spare A Dime Lyrics

"Spare a Dime"

LYRICS and Chords

CAPO on 5th fret  ( I transposed my keyboard for the video to 5 half steps higher)

Am    Am    E7    A7    D    G7    C    E7,  Dm/F    E7     Am    F7    Dm6    E7    Am

 

Verse 1

lament the times of days long past, it as all good, but the world moves so fast.  And now it drags on, and when the luxuries are all gone, are you able to deliver when you're called upon. It seems we've got to settle and live with what we've got. Even if you're living out of a car in a parking lot, or crashing on a couch through the kindness of a friend. It seems ridiculous to sit through this and still pretend that we live the dream, that we're making cream. But on a closer look, what you see ain't what it seems, because in reality, we're barely able to get buy. And if you let it, they will keep you there until you die. Yet its worth a try, and if you make the mark, but if you miss it then you're back to living in the dark, without the cash to put a bulb in the socket. Get a loan from a drone, now you're back in their pocket. My expense is low, but the price is high, and though I'm working hard, it's getting harder to get buy. Living modestly, delegating every cent. And still a match to scratch the cash enough to pay for rent. Despite the aggravation, you set a destination. So now it's back to school to try and get an education. I could study hard, but what do I see? A hundred fifty bucks a textbook! You've got to be kidding me. 

HORUS:

I don't give a fuck and I don't pay taxes, I got medicaid prescription glasses. Wanna buy some lortab, 5 bucks a piece. The doctor gave em to me when I lost my wisdom teeth.  A leader will deceive you everytime you hear em speak. And keep you in the gutter, I've been starving for a week. So listen to my story, if you got the time. Hey and by the way, Brother can you spare a dime.

Verse 2

I'm not a victim, just a product of environment. I know my father's gonna work through his retirement. I know my mother's gonna live out her days thanking god for any job paying minimum wage. I know there's no chance of any assurance. No doctor visits, no health insurance, PIP or dental, my furniture is rental. My dinner is a winner, ramen noodles, oriental. My life is detrimental, but what can you do? If you understand the lyrics then you're feeling this too. And they say that we can make a difference, but you gotta ask. Why it is that every politician wears a mask. Why it is that every president's the same and yet we get so patriotic when we're playing the game. But if you dont give a fuck, then fuck it. And if you do, whatever you do is just another drop in the bucket.
