The Bigger the Lie

You only notice me when I’m not around

Been training all my life sleeping on the couch

Most of my friends don’t even know where I live

Ignored in prison with prison ignorance

Life isn’t the right environment for me

The dark horse hanging with all the black sheep

 

*I’ve never played in the graveyard

Never climbed to the sky, no

The more people will believe it

The bigger the lie

I’m telling you the truth

 

I’d rather be alone than to be ignored

Your cocksmanship helps put the “man” in manure

You know you cannot kill that which doesn’t care

When you’re elected as the king of nowhere

Repeat defenders have nightmares never told

A crisis actor traveling a dark road

 

*I’ve never played in the graveyard

Never climbed to the sky, no

The more people will believe it

The bigger the lie

*I’ve never played in the graveyard

Never climbed to the sky, no

The more people will believe it

The bigger the lie

 

Inward Kill

I tried to keep busy, busy wouldn’t let me keep her around

I tried to keep busy, so I wouldn’t go crazy this time around

But it’s gonna’ happen

You know it will

But it’s gonna’ happen…

This inward kill

 

*What was it you said to me that I believed in you?

If history will repeat, I’ll take a seat by you

And no one else

 

I tried to keep upbeat but beats were all you ever heard

I tried to move my feet and try to keep up with all of the absurd

But it’s gonna’ happen

You know it will

But it’s gonna’ happen…

This inward kill

 

*What was it you said to me that I believed in you?

If history will repeat, I’ll take a seat by you

 

And no one else

And no one else

 

No one’s left here anymore

 

*What was it you said to me that I believed in you?

If history will repeat, I’ll take a seat by you

 

 

Sodium Pentathlon

*Where were you going? Where will you hide?

It’s not easy knowing when there is no guide

Where were you going? Where will you hide?

From all the demons you’ve been dreaming to life

 

No peace from anything

No sleep could ever bring

The “real me” or so you say

That’s breaking on the 10th day

There’s still time for you to run

 

*Where were you going? Where will you hide?

It’s not easy knowing when there is no guide

Where were you going? Where will you hide?

From all the demons you’ve been dreaming to life

 

You know me, you think you do

Below me my future tomb

So sorry for everything

Don’t worry about anything

 

Let’s not pretend

This is the end

 

*Where were you going? Where will you hide?

It’s not easy knowing when there is no guide

Where were you going? Where will you hide?

From all the demons you’ve been dreaming to life

 

The “dyer’s” situation is dire

Get on your lies

Break all the ties

 

Sodium pentathlon

Go on and run, run from love

 

*Where were you going? Where will you hide?

It’s not easy knowing when there is no guide

Where were you going? Where will you hide?

From all the demons you’ve been dreaming to life

 

Warning Labels

I’ll be pushing the boulder up the same exact hill

Pass the plate for collection…same church, different pew

No longer buying the farm-renting or leasing will do less harm

Everyone’s an athiest up until the shooting starts

A little guilt goes a long way

Make a quilt if you have something say

You forgot one thing, to pay your dues

To get into the human race

 

To only belong to the ages

Would be a greater fate than death

As we used to turn the pages

Now we only try to impress

 

*How many “Likes” can I get?

How do I kill my regret?

I think warning labels are just suggestions

How many “Likes” can I get?

How do I kill my regret?

I think warning labels are just suggestions

I’m not chosen, I’m forgotten

You can only be so impressed with your own achievements

Before they kill you

 

*How many “Likes” can I get?

How do I kill my regret?

I think warning labels are just suggestions

How many “Likes” can I get?

How do I kill my regret?

I think warning labels are just suggestions

 

Warning labels are untold fables

How many likes can I get?

I’m not chosen, I’m forgotten

 

Heathens

by Tyler Joseph and Mike Elizondo)

All my friends are heathens, take it slow

Wait for them to ask you who you know

Please don't make any sudden moves

You don't know the half of the abuse

All my friends are heathens, take it slow

Wait for them to ask you who you know

Please don't make any sudden moves

You don't know the half of the abuse

 

Welcome to the room of people

Who have rooms of people that they loved one day

Docked away

Just because we check the guns at the door

Doesn't mean our brains will change from hand grenades

You'll never know the psychopath sitting next to you

You'll never know the murderer sitting next to you

You'll think, "How'd I get here, sitting next to you?"

But after all I've said, please don't forget

 

All my friends are heathens, take it slow

Wait for them to ask you who you know

Please don't make any sudden moves

You don't know the half of the abuse

 

We don't deal with outsiders very well

They say newcomers have a certain smell

You have trust issues, not to mention

They say they can smell your intentions

You'll never know the freak show sitting next to you

You'll have some weird people sitting next to you

You'll think "How did I get here, sitting next to you?"

But after all I've said, please don't forget

 

All my friends are heathens, take it slow

Wait for them to ask you who you know

Please don't make any sudden moves

You don't know the half of the abuse

All my friends are heathens, take it slow (watch it)

Wait for them to ask you who you know (watch it)

Please all my friends are heathens, take it slow (watch it)

Wait for them to ask you who you know

 

Why'd you come? You knew you should have stayed

I tried to warn you just to stay away

And now they're outside ready to bust

It looks like you might be one of us

Constant-Deceased

You know everything, everything changes

Nothing remains without change

You know everything, everything changes

Nothing remains without change

 

You know it’s so, I know it’s so

If you know what leads you and what holds you back

You can choose the needs-you, wisdom chose the path

 

You know everything, everything changes

Nothing remains without change

You know everything, everything changes

Nothing remains without change

 

Embrace the change

 

If you know what feeds you, you won’t bite the hand

To be true with virtue, you can take a stand

 

You know everything, everything changes

Nothing remains without change

You know everything, everything changes

Nothing remains without change

 

 

What you are today are the thoughts of yesterday

Can you accept that we all have to change?

What you are today are the thoughts of yesterday

Can you accept that we all have to change?

 

You know everything, everything changes

Nothing remains without change

You know everything, everything changes

Nothing remains without change

 

Everything we believe will have to change

Everything we believe will have to change

Everything we believe

 

 

Bed Rest is Boring

Healthy as a horse but sick as a dog

Cut the tree down at the source now you only have a log

 

*You only cut me down

Inside all day, I want out

 

Lay down with dogs, wake up with fleas

Cut off the paws, and leaves from the trees

 

*You only cut me down

Inside all day, I want out

 

And now, you know how it feels

Bed rest is boring

 

 

Deprecipes

A groom that sleeps means a bride that weeps

Sitting at home making “Deprecipes”

A cup full of sorrow will help you believe

That you can cook up something to bereave

 

*Let’s pretend we’re grieving, everyone look at me!

Thoughts and prayers are with you

Let’s pretend we’re grieving, everyone feel for me!

I know that it’s hard to get through

 

After you found that you wanted the ring

You would become the flea market queen

A pinch of salt will just add to the dead

Eating the body, yet he loathes the bread

 

*Let’s pretend we’re grieving, everyone look at me!

Thoughts and prayers are with you

Let’s pretend we’re grieving, everyone feel for me!

I know that it’s hard get through

 

*Let’s pretend we’re grieving!

*Let’s pretend we’re grieving!

 

*Let’s pretend we’re grieving, everyone look at me!

Thoughts and prayers are with you

Let’s pretend we’re grieving, everyone feel for me!

I know that it’s hard get through

 

*Let’s pretend we’re grieving!

*Let’s pretend we’re grieving!

 

 

Exhale the past

When you got 1 eye, you gotta’ lead with confidence

Born with the “devil’s gene,” no one is innocent

Fake princes life a whisper from empty closed eyed kiss

My hell is someone’s heaven-lipstick Jesus/Devil bliss

 

He’d bitch if you hung him with a new rope, He’d bitch

 

*If you have a problem for every solution

I’ll just have to solve ‘em before the revolution

If you have a problem for every solution

I’ll just have to solve ‘em before the revolution

The only thing we have in common is me

 

Go on and watch the lions eating just to entertain

Times don’t change at all, the masses love to see the pain

Now the one’s before who felt it wear the lion’s mane

Proving if there was a God he never would create

 

Liberty dies with their applause, and sharpening of claws

 

*If you have a problem for every solution

I’ll just have to solve ‘em before the revolution

If you have a problem for every solution

I’ll just have to solve ‘em before the revolution

The only thing we have in common is me

 

They’re mistaking kindness for weakness again

Inhale the future, exhale the past

The only thing we have in common is me

Liberty dies with their applause

 

*If you have a problem for every solution

I’ll just have to solve ‘em before the revolution

If you have a problem for every solution

I’ll just have to solve ‘em before the revolution

 

 

Weeping Willow

The earth has given way, I think that she’s got something to say

I wish I might, I wish I may

Wake up to see another day

 

The weeping willow ain’t crying no more

She’s hardly breathing for us anymore

Are we preparing ourselves for a war?

I don’t think this is what she’s asking for

 

When one door closes, a coffin opens

 

The earth has given way, I think that she’s got something to say

 

The weeping willow ain’t crying no more

She’s hardly breathing for us anymore

Are we preparing ourselves for a war?

I don’t think this is what she’s asking for

 

I can’t breathe at all, quarantine for all 

I can’t breathe at all, quarantine for all (can’t breathe)

 

The weeping willow ain’t crying no more

She’s hardly breathing for us anymore

Are we preparing ourselves for a war?

I don’t think this is what she’s asking for

 

I can’t breathe at all, quarantine for all

Arson of a bitch

we know who set the fire…

everyone of you

we know who let the liars…

kill the truth

and now it won’t be long

to feel the new decay

and now it won’t be long

this fire burns away

 

*everything that we ever loved

everything that we’d ever hate

now we blame

 

$ arson of a bitch…you know it’s me

no more hiding…from…

x2

 

we know who set the fire…

everyone of you

why’d you have to kill?

 

*repeat

$repeat

lit up now

now we blame

$repeat

Shoulders

how many times could I

try to lie and say I’m alive?

how many times should I

keep up this act and try?

 

*with the weight of the world

 

$ up on my shoulders

I should have told her

x2

goodbye

 

how many times should I

keep to myself my war cry?

how many times could I

when I could simplify?

 

*repeat

$repeat

goodbye to everyone

goodbye

*repeat

$repeat

Heart Roulette

 

*what you think and what you know

are not the same but you can’t let go

of what you think that what you know

can’t be the same but it will show

 

X2

$ four chambers or six

if you take the heart, I’ll take the risk

 

behind these eyes

you’ll realize

that behind these lies

you’ll despise

 

of what you think that what you know

can’t be the same but it will show

X2

$repeat chorus

 

you’ve got to get it all out

but you’ve been running your mouth

you have to get it all out

but that’s not what you’re about X2

$repeat chorus

Hostage

you drank the potion to feel the motion

if you get in, you’re never getting out

laid to rest or getting laid just to rest

the unabashed name tag whore now

 

! Jesus didn’t know the year, it’s not who said it first

but who said it loud enough to pierce your ears

 

*if you’ve got something to sell me

why don’t you just tell me so that I can switch?

if you’ve got something to show me

act like you still know me, make me your hostage

 

you put a dollar in the change machine but nothing ever changes

no one’s at the missing person’s office and the dog with no hair tells you what mange is

the dog trained the scientist by having him ring the bell

we’ve allotted one day for training walking tall on your eggshells

 

! Jesus didn’t know the year, it’s not who said it first

but who said it loud enough to pierce your ears

 

*if you’ve got something to sell me

why don’t you just tell me so that I can switch

if you’ve got something to show me

act like you still know me, make me your hostage

Come on and release me

Cliff Diver

buckle up, get yourselves strapped in

knuckle grip all the way to the end

hold on for the ride

turn it up till you can’t even hear

don’t look back we’re the only ones here

let’s fly…let’s dive

 

*can you see me go?

where I’ll end up who knows

I just know I’m never coming back to you

can you see us go?

where we’ll end up, who knows

we just know we’re never coming back to you

 

pedal down till you push through the floor

metal drowns when the road is no more

we’re goin’ on for the ride

flying’ high, no need for no wings

gorgeous night, let it out go and sing

until they have to hear us

 

*repeat

*repeat

 

and we’re taking off

we’re leaving now

we’re making off

with a dollar amount

of nothing

cuz we don’t need

anything from anyone

anywhere…anymore

 

 

Livin’ on the edge (Aerosmith Cover)

There's something wrong with the world today

I don't know what it is

Something's wrong with our eyes

We're seeing things in a different way

And God knows it ain't his

It sure ain't no surprise, yeah

Living on the edge

Living on the edge

Living on the edge

Living on the edge

There's something wrong with the world today

The light bulb's getting dim

There's meltdown in the sky

If you can judge a wise man

By the color of his skin

Then mister you're a better man than I, oh

Living on the edge

(You can't help yourself from falling)

Living on the edge

(You can't help yourself at all)

Living on the edge

(You can't stop yourself from falling)

Living on the edge

(Everybody, everybody)

Tell me what you think about your situation

Complication, aggravation

Is getting to you, yeah

If Chicken Little tells you that the sky is falling

Even if it wasn't, would you still come crawling

Back again?

I bet you would my friend

Again, and again, and again, and again, and again

Yeah, tell me what you think about your situation

Complication, aggravation

Is getting to you

If Chicken Little tells you that the sky is falling

Even if it wasn't, would you still come crawling

Back again?

I bet you would my friend

Again, and again, and again, and again

Something right with the world today

And everybody knows it's wrong

But we can tell 'em no or we could let it go

But I would rather be a hanging on

Living on the edge

(You can't help yourself from falling)

Living on the edge

(You can't help yourself at all)

Living on the edge

(You can't stop yourself from falling)

Living on the edge

(Everybody, everybody)

Living on the edge

Living on the edge

Living on the edge

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...

Get talkin' to me

Living on the edge

You can't help yourself from falling

Living on the edge

You can't help yourself at all

Living on the edge

You can't stop yourself from falling

Living on the edge

Living on the edge

You can't help yourself

You can't help yourself

Living on the edge

You can't help yourself at all

Living on the edge

You can't help yourself

You can't help yourself

Living on the edge

You can't help yourself

You can't help yourself

Living on the edge

You can't help yourself at all

Living on the edge

Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Honor Amongst Thieves

what’s your stereotype?

I wanna’ hear everything I can

what’s your love life like?

and does it come with a pension plan?

 

! what are your thoughts like now?

are they still stuck on repeat?

still connecting the dots

to a game that you can’t beat

 

$ but you’ll keep on trying

while your honesty’s dying

 

*it’s honor amongst thieves

honor amongst thieves

it’s the fool who still believes

in honor amongst thieves, you know it’s me

 

what’s your best way out?

how many doors have been slammed in your face?

without reasonable doubt

i’ll always be your best disgrace

yet still I know it’s just your way to say

yet still I know you can think for yourself

yet still I know what you want and I can tell

 

*c’mon, c’mere, the coast is clear, don’t be so shy

no need to fear, c’mon, c’mere, I’m not like those other guys

c’mon, c’mere, you know you like me, I know it’s true

just like that, now I can teach you

yet still I know I thought this is what you meant

yet still I know how to pick alibis

yet still I know, let’s just go on with our lives

 

*repeat chorus

 

you know…that you brushed me on my way by

you know…that you gave me the eye

 

*repeat chorus

 

you love to shake and show

all the girlies hate you so

reverse how the story goes

to turn around the quid pro quo

Let Go

it’s hard not to dwell on the past

when you would go change the path

if you could only go back

you’d pick the moment that’s now at hand

 

!it’s better to travel well than to arrive

it can get better still, so let’s take a drive

 

*out on the open road

still with no place to go

why was I never told?

this is something I should’ve known

out on the open road

still with no place to go

why was I never told?

I should’ve known it long ago

 

$ but they kept it a secret from me

you kept it a secret because you were scared I’d leave

 

better one thing that can bring you peace

than a thousand empty things

what if we became just what we think?

then maybe we all will win

REcoiled

last night told everything about my life

I can ask you all your favorite place to go

 

but when the question comes around

my answer won’t be found

 

because no one asked me

no one cared to know just what I think

 

no one ever has

no one ever asked

 

*this conversation now is over

I’ll be absent, far removed away from nowhere

this conversation now is over

I’ll be fine, hangin’ out with my new hangover

 

last night told everything about my life

I can ask you all your very favorite things

but when the question comes around

I’m left out of the crowd but that’s alright…that’s alright with me

 

but in the silence there’s a sound

and the walls, it will tear down

 

in the past, we

always acted like we cared

 

still here lyin’ on the ground

naked king still has his crown

 

*this conversation now is over

I’ll be absent, far removed away from nowhere

this conversation now is over

I’ll be fine hangin’ out with my new hangover

War Dodger

where you going, Insane?

we’re still playing your old games

moving pieces for your sake

it’s hard to be real when you’re fake

 

*me of little faith in my employer

if you put “war” in “warrior”

 

$ I could’ve found a better way

or maybe found a better war to stay away from x2

just people that decide who stays

We built this city (Starship Cover)

We built this city

We built this city on rock and roll

Built this city

We built this city on rock and roll

Say you don't know me or recognize my face

Say you don't care who goes to that kind of place

Knee deep in the hoopla, sinking in your fight

Too many runaways eating up the night

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember?

We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Someone's always playing corporation games

Who cares, they're always changing corporation names

We just want to dance here, someone stole the stage

They call us irresponsible, write us off the page

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember?

We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

It's just another Sunday in a tired old street

Police have got the choke hold, oh, then we just lost the beat

Who counts the money underneath the bar?

Who rides the wrecking ball into our guitars?

Don't tell us you need us 'cause we're the ship of fools

Looking for America, coming through your schools

Don't you remember? (Remember)

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember?

We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

We built, we built this city, yeah (Built this city)

We built, we built this city

We built, we built this city yeah (Built this city)

We built, we built this city

We built, we built this city yeah (Built this city)

We built, we built this city (Built this city)

Latency

it’s been slowing us all down

but I’m too nervous for breakdowns

been waiting for the new put down

but I’ll be plugging my ears now

 

! why should I

please stand by?

*we’ve been waiting for the brand new day that we can

just do all the things that we had dreamed that we planned

Going Dizzy

turn around again like you did before

and we’ll begin this brand new war

turn around again like you did back then

and we’ll re-arm like we’ve always been

 

! where were we going?

why did we try?

where were we going?

I don’t know why

why were we going dizzy?

 

Going

*if you’re tired and far from home

look inside, you know you’re not alone

but if you like, you should know

that I’m here for you if you ever feel that you need to go

 

turn around again it’s like you were never gone

and we’ll all begin…you said it’s said to come back home

turn around again you said so many times before

Going

 

*if you’re tired and far from home

look inside, you know you’re not alone

but if you like, you should know

that I’m here for you if you ever feel that you need to go

 

Going dizzy again

(you know you’re going dizzy again)

you’re going dizzy again

(you know you’re going dizzy again)

 

I just keep spinnin’ around

you just keep spinnin’ around

 

*but if you’re tired and far from home

look inside, you know you’re not alone

but if you like, you should know

that I’m here for you if you ever feel that you need to go

*if you’re tired and far from home

look inside, you know you’re not alone

but if you like, you should know

that I’m here for you if you ever feel that you need to go

Quid Pro Quo

yet still I know your eyes give you away

yet still I know it’s just your way to say

yet still I know you can think for yourself

yet still I know what you want and I can tell

 

*c’mon, c’mere, the coast is clear, don’t be so shy

no need to fear, c’mon, c’mere, I’m not like those other guys

c’mon, c’mere, you know you like me, I know it’s true

just like that, now I can teach you

 

yet still I know you’re not that innocent

yet still I know I thought this is what you meant

yet still I know how to pick alibis

yet still I know, let’s just go on with our lives

*repeat chorus

 

you know…that you brushed me on my way by

you know…that you gave me the eye

*repeat chorus

you love to shake and show

all the girlies hate you so

reverse how the story goes

to turn around the quid pro quo

War Dodger

where you going, Insane?

we’re still playing your old games

moving pieces for your sake

it’s hard to be real when you’re fake

 

*me of little faith in my employer

if you put “war” in “warrior”

 

$ I could’ve found a better way

or maybe found a better war to stay away from x2

now

 

who you talking to these days?

just people that decide who stays

*repeat

$repeat

now

I could’ve stayed away from you x4

*repeat

I could’ve stayed away from you x4

 

Sink or Run

If no one gets out of here alive

why have we all been wasting our time?

*who would’ve thought those years ago

we’d see the death of all we’d know x2

I’m going’ back to the drawing board

to come up with what cannot be ignored

*repeat

$it’s time to sink or run…sink or run

how did we let it happen…should we have known?

how did we let it happen…those years ago?

who would’ve thought those years ago

we’d see the death of all we know

we’d see the death of rock ’n roll

$repeat

 

Watermelon Sugar

Tastes like strawberries

On a summer evenin'

And it sounds just like a song

I want more berries

And that summer feelin'

It's so wonderful and warm

Breathe me in

Breathe me out

I don't know if I could ever go without

I'm just thinking out loud

I don't know if I could ever go without

And that summer feelin'

Getting washed away in you
