"You want to know what happened to the fucking fish? I ate it! And washed it down with some Pedialyte!!" --Mike Wengren



Voices

"Written about the internal voice in our heads, our subconcious. The comparison of our own battles with it as compared to the mind of a serial killer who is also driven by voices, only to much more extreme ends."

So, are you breathing?
Now, now

Wake up, are you alive?
Will you listen to me?
I'm gonna talk about some freaky shit now
Someone is gonna die when you listen to me
Let the living die, let the living die, say

Are you breathing now?
Do the wicked see you?
You still breathing?
You're making me known
Are you breathing now?
Do the wicked see you?
You still breathing?

So, what's up
I wonder why do you listen to me
I'm gonna make you do some freaky shit now
Insane, you're gonna die when you listen to me
Let the living die, let the living die, say

Can you imagine how good going through this will make you feel?
I promise, no one will ever know
There will be no chance of you getting caught
They never loved you anyway
So come on, be a man
And do what you are compelled to do

Save me God

I can hear the voice but I don't want to listen
Strap me down and tell me I'll be alright
I can feel the subliminal need
To be one with the voice and make everything go
I can hear the voice but I don't want to listen
Strap me down and tell me I'll be alright
I can feel the subliminal need to be one with
The voice and make everything alright

So, are you breathing?
So, do you breathe now

The Game

"Speaking about the manipulative nature of most people. That you should be cautious when playing with another person's emotions or someone may make you accountable at some point in time."

Tell me exactly what am I supposed to do
Now that I have allowed you to beat me
Do you think that we could play another game?
Maybe I could win this time
I kind of like the misery you put me through
Darling you can trust me completely
If you even try to look the other way
I think that I could kill this time

It doesn't really seem I'm getting through to you
Though I see you weeping so sweetly
I think that you might have to take another taste
A little bit of hell this time

Lie to me
Lie to me

Is she not right? Is she insane?
Will she now
Run for life in the battle that ends this day
Is she not right? Is she insane?
Will she now
Run for her life now that she lied to me

You always wanted people to remember you
To leave your little mark on society
Don't you know your wish is coming true today
Another victim dies tonight

Lie to me
Lie to me

Is she really
Telling lies again
Doesn't she realize
She's in danger

The little bitch she went and she told a lie
And now she will never tell another lie
The little bitch she went and she told a lie
Never fucking lie to me

Stupify

"Against racial prejudice and discrimination. Written about a past relationship of mine where I was forced to part with my love because we were of different ethnicities."

Yeah
Bringing you another disturbing creation
From the mind of one sick animal
Who cant tell the difference
And got stupified

I've been waiting my whole life for just one fuck
And all I needed was just one fuck
How can you say that you don't give a fuck
I find myself stupified coming back again

All I wanted was just one fuck
One tiny little innocent fuck
And when I feel like I'm shit out of luck
I find myself stupified, coming back again

Why, do you like playing around with
My narrow scope of reality
I can feel it all start slippin'
I think I'm breaking down
Why do you like playing around with
My narrow scope of reality
I can feel it all start slippin' away

See but I don't get it
Don't you think maybe we can put it on credit?
Don't you think it can take control when I don't let it?
I get stupified
It's all the same you say, live with it
But I don't get it
Don't you think maybe we can put on credit?
Don't you think it can take control when I don't let it?
I get stupified, I get stupified

All the people in the left wing (fuck)
And all the people in the right wing (fuck)
And all the people in the underground (fuck)
I find myself stupified, coming back again
All the people in the high rise (fuck)
And all the people in the projects (fuck)
And all la henté in the barrio (fuck)
I find myself stupified, coming back again

תפחד (t'fached)

Don't deny me
No baby now, don't deny me
And darlin don't be afraid

Look in my face
Stare into my soul
I begin to stupify

Down With The Sickness

"Speaks about the eternal struggle of the individual against the mother culture of society that is constantly trying to beat the child struggling for independence and individuality into submission."

Can you feel that?
Oh shit

Drowning deep in my sea of loathing
Broken your servant I kneel (will you give in to me)
It seems what's left of my human side
Is slowly changing in me (will you give in to me)
Looking at my own reflection
When suddenly it changes
Violently it changes
There is no turning back now
You've woken up the demon in me

Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Open up your hate and let it flow in to me
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up, come on get down with the sickness
You fucker get up, come on get down with the sickness
Madness is the gift that has been given to me

I can see inside you the sickness is rising
Don't try to deny what you feel (will you give in to me)
It seems that all that was good has died
And is decaying me (will you give in to me)
It seems you're having some trouble
In dealing with these changes
Living with these changes
The world is a scary place
Now that you've woken up the demon in me

Madness has now come over me

And when I dream
No mommy don't do it again
Don't do it again
I'll be a good boy
I'll be a good boy, I promise
No mommy don't hit me, ow
Why did you have to hit me like that, Mommy?
Don't do it, you're hurting me, ow
Why did you have to be such a bitch?
Why don't you
Why don't you just fuck off and die?
Why can't you just fuck off and die?
Why can't you just leave here and die?
Never stick your hand in my face again, bitch
Fuck you
I don't need this shit
You stupid, sadistic, abusive fucking whore
Would you like to see how it feels, Mommy?
Here it comes, get ready to die

Violence Fetish

"Speaks about the human necessity for some violent sort of release. Encourages that it be done at the show."

Bring the violence
It's significant
To the life
If you've ever known anyone
Bring the violence
It's significant
To the life, can you feel it?

How do you sleep
When you live with your lies
Out of your mouth
Up from your mind
That kind of thinking starts a chain reaction
You are a time bomb ticking away

Need to release
What you're feeling inside
Let out the beast
That you're trying to hide
Step right up and be a part of the action
Get your game face on because it's time to play

You're pushing and fighting your way
You're ripping it up

How do you live
Without playing the game
Sit on the side
And expect to keep sane
Step right up and be part of the action
Come get a piece of it before it's too late
Take a look around
You can't deny what you see
We're living in a violent society
Well my brother let me show you a better way
Get your game face on because it's time to play

Tell me what am I supposed to be
Another goddamn drone
Tell me what am I supposed to be
Should I leave it on the inside?
Should I get ready to play?

Fear

"A dialogue between the tortured and their torturers. The "fortunate ones" making you feel like less than what you are."

Feel something and get up

Reject, are you no one, feel you nothing
You know I'll bet you think you have a good reason
To be living in the limelight
Of the fortunate ones
You're too weakened by the poison that they feed you
In the living lie they don't believe you
Call to no one, trust in nothing, little impotent one

I don't wanna be innocent, you know
I don't want to let them hypnotize me

Punkass, are you listening, can you hear me?
Or are you deaf and dumb to my language?
Do the real words seem to hurt you?
Well put em up motherfucker
You're gonna feel it when I stamp it on your forehead
So you will never forget
That you're a reject, and you're no one, and you're nothing
Little impotent one

Fear awaken
Go with it now and let it overcome you
Fear awaken
Your mind is racing

I don't understand why don't you like me
Why don't you like me? Am I so different from you?
Now does it scare you that I'm able to discern
What to love and what to burn
I'll add your fuel to the fire now
Stand back, brother take your hand back
Leave it and I might crack
More than a smile or two you see
Don't judge what you don't understand
You can't deny what has been given to me

Numb

"Speaking about the void left after your heart has been broken."

Bleeding I'm
Crying I'm
Falling I'm
Bleeding now

Bleeding now I'm
Crying out I'm
Falling down and I'm
Feeling nothing like
Laughing now I'm
Stopping now I'm ooh
Reaching out and I'm
Feeling nothing

Yeah, you created a rift within me
Now there've been several complications
That have left me feeling nothing
I might say
You were wrong to take it from me
Left me feeling nothing

Crawling now I'm
Beaten down I'm
Tortured now and I'm
Feeling nothing like
Hunting now I'm
Stalking now I'm
Reaching out and I'm
Killing nothing

I can feel you ripping and tearing
And feeding and growing inside of me

I want this
More than you know
I need this
Give it back to me

You created a rift within me
You are the cause of these horrid complications
That are ripping and tearing and feeding and growing inside of me
Yeah, you created a rift within me
Now there have been several complications that are
Ripping... tearing... feeding... growing
Ripping... tearing
Ripping and tearing and feeding and growing inside of me

Want

"Speaking about a person's unwillingness to give in to their desires, no matter how much they suffer."

Just thought I’d take a little bit of your pain
She want me, no

Your mind won't let you say that you want me
Your mind won't ever, never let you say what you want
You howl and wail like a banshee
Still your mind won't ever let you say
Your mind won't let you say that you want me
Your mind won't ever, never let you say what you want
My little tired devotee
Your mind won't even let you feel

Quivering now, shivering now, withering
Your mind won't let you say that you're
Wondering now, pondering now, hungering
Won't let you say that you're questioning, wavering, weakening
Your mind won't let you say that you're hearkening, listening
Heeding me now
Won't let you say that you want

Your mind won't let you say that you want me
Your mind won't ever, never let you have what you want
I feel your hunger to taste me
Still your mind won't ever let you say
Your kind is just the type that should use me
But your mind won't seem to let you have
The opportunity to abuse me, abuse me
Your mind won't even let you feel

Savor the addiction Savor the affliction, savor me
Savor her mind

Your mind won't let you say that you want me
What do you want?

Conflict

"Discourages people from looking for an enemy to fight against."

You are enemy
You are my hated enemy
I am enemy
Number one-rated enemy

I'm labeled enemy
I am your mortal enemy
My actions enemy
Make me your bitter enemy

All around the world around enemy
They're tearing up the ground enemy
They're drawn in by the sound enemy, enemy
I must eliminate my enemy

Your people enemy
My people's hated enemy
What are you enemy
Though a created enemy

I terminate the enemy
Eradicate the hated enemy
I am an enemy
My very greatest enemy

You try to tell me that you love life
Then find another way to kill life

Wanting, love life
Needing, kill life
Wanting, love life
Needing, kill your
Enemy

Shout 2000

"Primal scream therapy."
Cover of Tears For Fears' "Shout".


Shout, shout
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on
I'm talking to you
So come on

In violent times
You shouldn't have to sell your soul
In black and white
They really really ought to know (just don't know)
Those wandering minds
Who took you for a working whore
Kiss them goodbye
They shouldn't have to jump for joy (jump jump jump jump jump)

You shouldn't have to shout for joy

They give you life
And in return you gave em hell
As cold as ice (not it’s your ice ice baby)
I hope we live to tell the tale
I hope we live to shout the tale

Will you never shout?
I feel it building
Are you ever gonna let it all out?

And when you've taken down your guard
If I could change your mind
I'd really love to break your heart (break break break break)

Come on let me shout shout let me
Come on let me shout shout

Droppin' Plates

"Speaks about Disturbed's uphill battle to be a metal band in a city, and a world that does not necessarily want one."

Well here we go again, get up
A little something for your earhole, get up
Baring a part of my soul again, get up
Disturbed in da house, we're droppin' plates

You said it couldn't be done
Told me that it's the kind of battle that just couldn't be won, you know
You're too sick, too hard, too fucked in the head
You'll never make it, no, not in this lifetime
Well guess again, my friend, don't act surprised
We got the bass drum kick that will blow out your eyes, huh
'Cause when you hear this shit, you'll get to steppin'

Gonna fight the war, and use my MUSIC AS A WEAPON

You know I'm talkin' 'bout
Recognition
You know I'm talkin' 'bout
Vindication

Another goddamn slap in the face
Don't wanna give us a place, are you afraid
Well fear this, 'cause I'm breaking through the walls of your nightmare
Wake up, time to die
The way I'm livin' there is no compromising it
Better get ready for another surprise and it
May leave a mark, because I'm coming in fast
Planting thoughts in your mind and droppin' plates on your ass
Well here I come I'm droppin' plates on your ass bitch
You never mind and you don't need this
Well here I come I'm droppin' plates on your ass bitch
You never mind and you don't need

Well on your mark here we go again, hey yeah yeah
Well never mind 'cause you're not number one, oh yeah yeah
You're too hardened from the other side, hey yeah yeah
I think it's time to bring it home again
Right to me

Here I come I’m droppin plates on your ass
Plates on your ass bitch, plates on your ass

Well on your mark now here we go again I’m droppin plates
I use my music, my weapon, I’m droppin plates
Rip through the walls of your nightmare, I’m droppin plates
Well here we go and droppin plates

Meaning Of Life

"Encourages existentialism."

Get psycho
I wanna get psycho

I wanna get psycho
Run you little bitch
I want your power glowing, juicy flowing, red hot
Meaning of life
It's not enough to have a little taste
I want the whole damn thing
Now can you dig it?
Need to get psycho
I want to hear you say it
Say you want it, need it
Don't wanna wait until we finish the show
It's not enough, you hunger for more
You're the one twisted little fuck
And now you wanna get psycho with me

Give in, Give in
Decide

I wanna get psycho
Scratch my itch
Give me your power glowing, juicy flowing, red hot
Meaning of life
It's not enough to have a little piece
I want the whole damn thing
Now can you dig it?
Need to get psycho
I want to hear you scream
Tell me to take you, scare you, fuck you
After we finish the show
It's not enough
You listening, whore?
You're one twisted little fuck
And now you want to get psycho with me

I can feel the blood flowing through my veins spilling on my soul
And now the hunger's getting bigger
Come a little closer now pretentious whore and pull my trigger
Free the violence that is building in me
I say now end of the ride murder suicide is how I've been feeling lately
Come a little closer now pretentious whore
I'm reeling with a feeling that I can't ignore
And the need to get psycho
Is not a question to me
