There's nothing a god can give to me that I can't give to myself
I put my beliefs in the things I believe and a god can take care of himself
There's not enough love in the world for me to think about wasting my time
It's not that I don't believe at all but I can't need a heavenly sing
I can achieve the things I need without getting down on my knees
I can respect your religion but I don't want to pay your fees
I don't want to hear you talk about things you think that I need
So don't help me back on my feet again until you can hear me pied
Just look in the holy book of crooks and tell me what you can find
All the rules and regulations made to manipulate your mind
Don't pretend that you're blind, just open your mind and study historical times

The bigger the loss
The bigger the cost
The bigger the cross
And its crimes

I don't believe in god that I need to worship
I don't believe that I need to get down on my knees
I don't believe that voice from above can help me
I only believe in that I can see and the things I can achieve

Whatever belief you belong to there's still always a reason to doubt
And there's always another opinion as to what life is all about
There's always a bigger dimension and a different point of view
So I don't want to try to change you that decision is up to you
Whatever your final choice is and however you chose to live
You better be happy for what you can get and happy with what you can give
There's only one thing to remember there is only one thing you can do
And that is to do unto others as you'd have others do unto you

Two sides two sides to every story
Two stories more makes four new ones to chose
Four sides four sides to every story
Four stories more makes eight new ones to chose
Eight sides eight sides to every story
Eight stories more now which one should you chose
Now which one can you use


Burn your bridges, bile your tongue
Dig your own grave, what's done is done
What's in your head, what's on your mind
Time will tell don't look behind
What I keep inside my head is stuck right on my mind
And time will tell if I should look behind

Hold your head up, hold your head up high
Hold your head up, hold your head up high
Hold your head up, put up or shut up

Two steps forward and one step back
The time will come when you loose track
Speak your mind or sell your soul
Stand tall or fall down in a hole
I've got to speak my mind before I sell my soul
I've got to stand for what I am before I fall

It's too late I guess what's done is done
I'd rather dig myself a grave than bite my tongue
So I take two steps forward and then one step back
I'm not afraid of loosing faith, I'm scared of loosing track


Nobody is perfect but I'm pretty fucking close
And I'm here to give you all a heavy heavenly dose
I think you better listen 'cause I know who you are
And I think that you should treat me like a superstar
Because I'm more than just a human I'm the gift to all of you
And I'm here to make sure that my message gets through
I wonder if you're really all as dumb as you look
Or are you smart enough to learn the rules in my book
I hope you understand that the knowledge I bring
Puts me in the position of a god or a king
'Cause I blessed with the gift of the magic touch
And I wouldn't say that I'm asking for too much
All you have to do is get down on your knees and pray
And I promise you the remedy is on its way
But you can never be like me so don't waste your time
Because I reign supreme and my position is divine

What's wrong with being self possessed?
Nobody's satisfied with being second best
I've got the gift and I know that I'm blessed
And I've got to get it off my chest

I'm the biggest the best
Better than the rest
Better than the rest

I'm not afraid of competition cos I'm know that I'm best
And you haven't got a chance to even pass my little test
Even if you wanted to you couldn't pay the price
There ain't no room for losers in my perfect paradise
'Cos life is always based upon the weight of your success
So I'll make sure that I get the most and nothing less
If I love myself then everyone will love me too
And there's nothing you can do for me that I can't do

So welcome to my kingdom and enjoy your little stay
Even if you can't afford it I'll still make you pay
So you better come and get it and enjoy it while you can
Don't tell me that you're dumb enough to think I give a damn
I couldn't care less about what you achieve
And there's only one thing that you have to believe
The only thing important that you have to understand
Is that no matter what you say I'm still a god I really am


Are you satisfied with everything the way it is
Are you stuck in the conformity of minding your own biz
Does a confrontation make you want to turn and run
And do you scared of looking back at all the things you've said
And do you keep the words you'd like to say inside your head
Well nothing changes by itself without some kind of clash
And there's always gonna be some barriers to smash

Are you scared to be, scared of what you see
Are you scared to change, scared to rearrange
There's a chance that you never take the chances you get

If you never move ahead you'll keep on looking back
The only thing you're doing is just filling out the cracks
Another coat of artificial paint won't change a thing
Unless the whole foundation gets a brand new coloring
What is there to lose except some insecurity
That you replace with faith to not be scared of what you see
'cos every little risk you take breaks down another wall
The biggest chance that you can take is just to let it fall

Are you scared to be, scared of what you see
Are you scared to change, scared to rearrange
There's a chance that you never take the chances you get
There's a chance you haven't taken any chances yet


Everyone is happy in your favorite dream
It's a pleasant surprise with all your favorite scenes
Just like a beautiful day without a cloud in the sky
And the only thing to blind you is the sun in your eyes

When your body's asleep all your thoughts are awake
Travelling through stories that your mind likes to make
Take a look around, enjoy that you feel
Is it just imagination or is everything real

Don't wake me up I want to dream
Don't wake me up I want to dream
I want this dream to last forever
Don't wake me up I want to dream
I want this dream to last forever
Don't wake me up

The skies are getting cloudy there's storm on the way
The vision's disappearing in a strange kind of way
The perfect little picture that you paint in your head
Is a distant memory when you get out of bed

Don't wake me up I want to dream
Don't wake me up I want to dream
I want this dream to last forever
Don't wake me up I want to dream
I want this dream to last forever
Don't wake me up

Don't wake me up before I understand that everything means
Why does somebody always come and wake me up from my dreams


How come all things you say just don't make sense to me
Why do we spend so much time just refusing to agree
If you say you like something you know I'll say I don't
And when you want to do something that's fun you know I won't
Why is it always my turn to take care of this mess
I don't think it's fare to say I'm always doing less
You don't know what I do so I don't think you should moan
And if you're so much better you can do it on your own

Nobody likes me like I do, not even you
Nobody needs me the way I do, not even you
Nobody knows what I'm going through, not even you

You always make me feel like everything I do is wrong
And things would be much easier if we could get along
But every time I criticize you, you over react
Please don't tell me one more time that opposites attract
That has to be the biggest fucking lie I've ever heard
Don't tell me to shout my mouth I haven't said a word
You're the one that started it and you know that I know
So what's the use there's no excuse you know that no means no

Is there really any point in working this all out
All we ever do these days is fight and scream and shout
Maybe we should give it up and just call it a day
I can't think of anything I even want to say
I'm sick and tired of feeling like I've been misunderstood
So give me one good reason and I'll stay night here with you
I can't take another day I don't know what to do


Lets all pretend that we're stupid and dumb
And that nobody knows where it's all coming from
I've got a whole lot of questions that I'm never gonna ask
I don't want to know what's behind your mask
I've got a life of my own it's hard enough as it's
Without having to listen to your personal biz
If we all keep quiet it could be ideal
'Cos I don't want to know how you feel

Nobody, nobody knows
Nobody shows it if nobody knows it
Nobody, nobody knows
So don't open your mouth if you don't know how to close it

It's a god damn pity I don't know what the use is
For all of your good for nothing lame excuses
It's complicated makes me frustrated
Brings everything out in me I've always
Instead of pretending that we always agree
Why don't you just tell me what you think about me
Because we all want to leave but nobody wants to go
'Cos everybody knows we all know

Everybody knows what I'm talking about
All the little white secrets that ever come out
All the things that we do and the things that we say
In this stupid little game called life we play
I don't want to hurt you so I don't want to know
What you're thinking about and where you're going to go
I don't want to stick my nose in anybody's affairs
I don't want to know and who cares


I'm the center of my own universe and I'm sitting on top of my world
I'm the middle of my attention and I'm the best joke I've ever heard
I'm the king of my own castle and I'm the master of my own mind
I'm the best friend that I've ever had, the best friend that I'll ever find
I'm the nicest person I've ever met, the only person that I'll never forget
I'm the best sex that I've ever had, the one relationship I'll never forget

I can see them coming

We want to lock you up, they want to lock me up
We want to put you away, they want to put me away
We want to shut you up, they want to shut me up
We want you out of the way, they want me out of the way

I'm the greatest star in my hall of fame, I'm the host of my own show
I'm the main character in my book, I'm the most humble guy I know
I'm the leader of my own army, I'm the fuhrer of my chosen ones
I'm the atom bomb that I'll blow my world, all the way to my kingdom come
I'm the god of my own bible, I'm the Jesus of my own cross
I'm the savior of my own people and I'm my own creator

I think I'm going crazy
I'm loosing my mind


I was dreaming that I was caught up in the middle of a parade
But I wasn't paying attention to the statement being made
And when I looked up at a banner and saw just what it said
Then I wished that I was somewhere else instead
Because the message on the banner was for white supremacy
And no matter how hard I tired it didn't make any sense to me
So I studied the people around me trying to think of what to say
But the only thing I could think of was to laugh and walk away

I was dreaming that I was talking to a man about his faith
And I was far away from home in some kind of exotical place
The situation was such that when I looked at my surrounding
I got nervous and my heart just started pounding
I realized that I was the only man that was Caucasian
All the people around me looked like oriental Asian
I was a legal alien in a difficult situation
But I could relate to the state I was in when I thought about discrimination

Was I in the wrong place at the wrong time
Or was I in the wrong state of mind
Wrong place, wrong time, wrong state of mind

I was dreaming that I was at home and when I look a look around
It was as if the entire population had suddenly gone underground
I was standing all by myself and there was on one to be found
The only thing worse than a terrible noise is not even hearing a sound
There wasn't a trace of a human face as far as my eyes could see
I started to feel kind of lonely and I wanted some company
I had it make do with myself and the thought didn't appeal to me
'Cos the only thing worse than to many people is feeling completely lonely

Anybody could be related with a monkey in a tree
Or an ancient tribe from Africa but this doesn't bother me
I've probably got lots of relatives that are Jews and nobody knows
Maybe that's the reason for the size of my big and beautiful nose
My family tree is a mystery that comes from all over the place
So tell me the logical definition of a perfect race
Some people are dressed in a darker tan and some have a lighter shade
And I can assure you nobody's sure exactly where they were made


I know the answers to the questions in your mind
I've been to the places that you couldn't even find
I seen all the things you never thought you'd get to see
I've been everyone you couldn't be
I've read all the stories and I know how they end
I've fixed all the broken things that you couldn't mend
I've taken all the chances what you never even took
And I've found the things you overlooked

I'm the answer to your questions, I'm belief when you're in doubt
I'm based on a rumor, I'm spread by word of mouth
there's no proof of my existence I'm the myth that you arouse

I'm your life and religion, your faith and your hope
Your drug and your addiction, your injection of dope

I've meet all the people that you never dared to meet
I've played all the games of life and never once been beat
I've walked upon the water without even getting wet
And there's not a thing that I regret
I've done everything that's wrong and made it right again
I've talked to all my enemies and turned them into friends
I've been crucified and resurrected from the dead
Do you believe a single word I've said?

I'm the answer to your questions, I'm belief when you're in doubt
I'm based on a rumor, I'm spread by word of mouth
there's no proof of my existence I'm the myth that you arouse

I'm your life and religion, your faith and your hope
Your drug and your addiction, your injection of dope

I'm everywhere and nowhere I'm your savior when you sin
I'm your great escape to higher ground when you give in
I'm everybody's scapegoat I'm a glimpse of clarity
Would you sacrifice yourself for me?


I think I'm going crazy I loosing my mind
'cos the logic of the story is impossible to find
Like a talking head I'm gonna making sense
'cos bad news is like sitting on a burning fence
I've got one hot minute of the ground
And like Simon said I know the silence is the sound
Nevermind I'll reach Nirvana if I have to pay
I'm a fool for a lifetime and a king for a day

Crazy I'm going fucking crazy
Crazy I'm going fucking crazy

I am looser looking for the gold
But in the garden of sound you know the story's getting old
So I'll sow my korn by the Helmet in the Bush
And in the meantime I want you all to help me push
With the Tool of intolerance I'm ready to crack
'cos I've got Suicidal Tendencies so lets get
And take a rollercoaster ride to the bizarre side

I'm insane in the brain like a lonely tune
And I'll see you on the dark side of the moon
I'm the man in the box locked up in chains
And I'm buried deep down underneath the remains
I'm a psycho-maniac, welcome to my nightmare
I'll use your brain like chemical warfare
I'm out of mind let's count the bodies from dead


After all these precious years you chose to just give in
Why did you leave so many things undone
I only scratched the surface of the thoughts you had within
And for me your life had just begun
Why did you think that you were never good enough to give
When you accepted me right from the start
I never saw the side of you that didn't want to live
And I miss you from the bottom of my heart
What was it that you never told a soul about yourself
What kind of thoughts were buried inside
Was there really no one there you thought would understand
Or was the only barrier your pride
Witch so much love around you I just wish you'd loved yourself
'Cos no one here can ever take your place
You were someone special and my words just can't express
How much I miss the warmth of your embrace

Why did you just give in
Why did you just give up and let it go
I guess I'll never know

It's hard to see you disappear without a real good bye
There's so many things I wish I'd said
But all the little things you did that made it all worthwhile
Met more than all the tears you ever shed
You always seemed so happy but I guess no one can tell
What goes on inside a person's mind
You loved you children dearly and you did your very best
And someone new like you is hard to find

All the things you went through for you children every day
And all the sacrifices that you made
Were worth much more than anything that wealth could ever buy
And now that love can never be replayed
In the end I guess you couldn't take it anymore
So you closed your eyes and swallowed all your pain
I know that you've done the same so many times before
But all the question in my mind remain
