Lyrics

PARIAH

To sacrifice ones self never made sense to me
Cuz life is really the only and last gift weíve all received
Some've been wasted in the name of something that you canít see
Continually defeats the purpose of that something creating

Oh delusions are meant to justify, justify the things you do
Oh delusions never really qualify, qualified as an excuse

As he approached the city center with the sky line in view
There was nothing left to contemplate he knew he must follow through
With the plan certified by faith and the plan written in death
At that moment this was it, he took his last breath

Oh delusions are meant to justify, justify the things you do
Oh delusions never really qualify, qualified as an excuse

No more hiding, no more hiding, no more blame
No more fighting, no more fighting, no more pain
No more chaos, no more chaos, no more stress
No more addiction, no more addiction, no more mess
No more attitudes, no more swollen heads
No more greed, no more feeding from the hand
No more whining, no more blame it on the man
Realize it's your own fault


IRELAND

Iíll never leave this place
No Iíll never leave this place
Iíll never leave the place where I was born

Because beyond these town limits
Even though Iíve never seen Ďem
There's really nothing else to explore
There's nothing more, thereís nothing more
There's nothing more

Where is your intrigue and interest?
You don't have any questions or wonder?
Why would I leave this place when I'm comfortable right here?
Everything I need and more isn't far, itís near

Iíll never leave this place
No Iíll never leave this place
Iíll never leave the place where I was born
Because beyond these town limits
Even though Iíve never seen Ďem
There's really nothing else to explore
There's nothing more, thereís nothing more

You have created a falsehood
A focused yet close-minded view
There's no telling where we'll be at this same time next year
But I do know one thing it won't be far from here

Iíll never leave this place
No Iíll never leave this place
Iíll never leave the place where I was born
Because beyond these town limits
Even though Iíve never seen Ďem
There's really nothing else to explore
There's nothing more, thereís nothing more
There's nothing more, thereís nothing more


STAMP OF ORIGIN - PESSIMISTIC

Pessimistic yes, it may seem
But if youíve been there, you know what I mean
A struggle and suffering that wonít go away
It wonít go away
It wonít go away
It wonít go away


LIGHTSWITCH

Was put in a round room and told to sit in the corner
While they washed my brain with a dirty rag
Was given a hammer and told to build a fortress
With walls impossible to penetrate
Youíre the only thing I need and
Youíve become the only thing that keeps me breathing
Without you Iíd be in a dark place with no light switch,
An open wound without a stitch,
Maybe now you will understand

No matter how stable your foundation may seem
Everything is crashing down on me
With paper cuts on finger tips, blackened eyes and broken lips
Forever wounded itís hard to tell
Youíre the only thing I need whether I fail or succeed
Within my blindness, you are all I see
The morning fog the sun burns away; a predatorís eye without its prey
Maybe now you will understand

I wonít quit on you, no I wonít quit on you
I wonít let it inÖ
Ever, ever, ever, ever


GATHERING PEBBLES

Wait for me; youíre on to something maybe
Thereís no need to play catch up, to play catch up
Wait for me; youíre on to something maybe
Thereís no need to play catch up, to play catch up

Casually, casually walking through life without a worry
Worried its effects will show so now Iím gathering
Gathering the pebbles I need to drink from the well
So thirsty so thirsty

Wait for me, well I am not very far behind so
Wait for me, Iím still chasing you
Wait for me, well I am not very far behind so
Wait for me, while I play catch up, play catch up

But thankfully, thankfully I havenít been taken very seriously
Seriously anxious to run the course without stumbling
Stumbling over fences now Iím falling
Falling down the hillside
Itís way too steep
Itís way too steep

Wait for me, well I am not very far behind so
Wait for me, Iím still chasing you
Wait for me, well I am not very far behind so
Wait for me, Iím still chasing you

I happened to take a chance, now thereís no turning back
Return to childhood dreams, theyíre rusted figurines
Iíve been through life fast, riding over broken glass
There is no question now that I will catch upÖ


INFORMATION

You're suffering, I feel your pain
Allow me to be your sponge
Cuz I can absorb your sorrows, I'm the one
Fire may rain down on you, but I'll be your water
Waves may crash on you, but I'll be your land

Cuz I want to give you, just a temporary bliss

Just a little bit, just a little bit, a little more info rmation
To add to my confusion, to add to the frustration,
I don't need it

So shed your pain, while I sit in silence
As you bleed your deepest feelings here
Quakes may rattle you, but I'll be your sky
Winds may twist around you, but I'll be your clouds

Just a little bit, just a little bit, a little more information
To add to my confusion, to add to the frustration,
I don't need it, no I donít need it

He woke up next to her, his head against her head
His hand upon her breast, he knew today meant death
He kissed her on the cheek, and then on her lips
Thought to himself "it's the last time I'll do this"

Put on a suit, pressed and clean
Brushed his hair, grabbed his keys
Then he headed out to the morning air
With an anticipation no man could bear

The air was heavy, he could feel it in his lungs
With every step he took, a prayer rolled off his tongue
They were prayers of forgiveness, and prayers of praise
And his actions a gift for a god without a name

Just a little bit, just a little bit, a little more information
To add to my confusion, to add to the frustration,
I don't need it, no I don't need it


STAMP OF ORIGIN Ė OCEAN MEETS BAY

I am not the one to blame
We are all part of the problem
Damper your complaints
We are all, we are to blame


SAVIOUR

It makes me wish I was a banger
I'd come and retaliate
I tend to avoid impulsive gangster attitudes
Cuz they will blind you

It's gonna eat you up
It's gonna drag you down
Gonna get all that you ask for
Affected many lives
Left a void so wide
Gonna give it all that you are

Looking for a saviour
Not one who saves
Been looking for a saviour
One to retaliate

There's no need for forgiveness
It's already said and done
But don't let revenge consume and take hold of you
Cuz it will blind you

It's gonna eat him up
It's gonna drag him down
He's gonna get all that he asked for
Affected many lives
Left a void so wide
Gonna give him all that he wants

Looking for a saviour
Not one who saves
Been looking for a saviour
One to retaliate

Open up, Open up, Open up, Open up

You affected many lives
You left a void so wide
Gonna get all that you ask for
It's gonna eat you up
It's gonna drag you down
You're gonna get all that you want

Looking for a saviour
Not one who saves
Been looking for a saviour
One to retaliate
You've sworn to retaliate
One to retaliate

Open up, Open up, Open up, Open up


I DONíT KNOW

Well Iíve been absorbing mediocrity
Been hollowed by uncertainty
Iíve taken all of my beliefs and given 'em up
Cuz there's no guarantee of a god or longevity
Admit you don't know anything and give it up

Singing, I don't know if I've been reborn,
Lived a past life, suffered in another time, I don't know
Singing, I don't know if I've been reborn,
Lived a past life, suffered in another time, I don't know

Give it up, give it up, give it up

Well I don't know what to believe anymore
But every now and then I feel a moment of awakening
But then it's gone, then it's gone, then it's gone
Iím blanketed by the warmth of ignorance

Singing, I don't know if I've been reborn,
Lived a past life, suffered in another time, I don't know
Singing, I don't know if I've been reborn,
Lived a past life, suffered in another time, I don't know

If I'll go somewhere special when I die
If I'll go somewhere special when I die
So I'll just go on living my way

There's a strength in duality, penetrate mentality
Give it up, give it up
I've learned from casualty, don't have faith in anything
Give it up, give it up
Singing, I don't know, no, I'll never know
I'm giving up, giving up

Singing, I don't know if I've been reborn,
Lived a past life, suffered in another time, I don't know

If I'll go somewhere special when I die
If I'll go somewhere special when I die
So I'll just go on living my way


MOURNING THIS MORNING

Weíll be mourning this morning
There is no need to complain
Cuz weíve been ignoring this warning
There is no pleasure without this pain

Weíre drawn together by accident
Weíll be forever with these words and
Melodies theyíll guide us through this speck in time
Weíre trying to get the missed attempts
We are forever with these words and
Memories theyíll guide us through this night
Weíre getting older, older, older

Another day, another rut
Along the highways faults
We sat and watched him, the saddened watchmen
Heís all alone

Weíre drawn together by accident
Weíll be forever with these words and
Melodies theyíll guide us through this speck in time
Weíre trying to get the missed attempts
We are forever with these words and
Memories theyíll guide us through this night
Weíre getting older, older, older

But itís not over, over
Cuz this all, all youíll ever get
Donít forget that, donít forget that, donít forget
Cuz this all, all youíll ever get
Donít forget that, itís your one and only chance
Go this far, on your own
Weíll keep mourning this morning
Weíll keep mourning this morning
Cuz weíve been ignoring this warning all along
Weíre getting older, older, older


STAMP OF ORIGIN Ė TAKE A LOOK AROUND

Take a look around, all things green and brown they are here to stay
The people walking by, buildings built so high, theyíll be gone someday
A piercing sound so loud, takes over the crowd watch them run away
Objects in the sky, blackened all the light total disarray
What a show, what a show
Take a look around everything youíve found will be gone someday


CARTOON SHOWROOM

Gonna miss your ways, your sin, your smell, your smile
An anxious attempt to let you know
Dancing on the roof of some cartoon showroom
But in an instant Iíd give it all right back
So keep moving onward
Run through that open door
Consuming knowledge
Wormhole through times before

Canít you hear their voices crying
Canít you hear their hearts breaking

There is only so much we can do, only so much can be shown to you
The rest is your choice... itís your choiceÖ
When I close my eyes, I see two faces above me
One to my left, one to my right
I took you under, under my wing to shadow
It never did bother me to hide you from the light
So keep moving onward
Run through that open door
Consuming knowledge
Wormhole through times before

Canít you hear their voices crying
Canít you hear their hearts breaking

There is only so much we can do, only so much can be shown to you
The rest is your choiceÖitís your choiceÖitís your choice
So keep moving onward (Run through that open door)


QUOTES

Thereís a way
A way to get out of here
To escape these storms and find some shelter
To rid of your darkness, to rid of your boredom
Thereís somewhere
Somewhere that you can go
Itís obvious, well, well itís apparent
Itís right in front of you
So reach out and take it
And just let go

Our sobriety will diminish
Discriminate we fade slow, fade slow
These drugs will expand us
United we will grow
Let go, Let go

Thereís a way
A way to squash all of your fears
When everyone around you seems to be a stranger
You feel their eyes upon you
Your hearing their thoughts
As they walk away their voice grows louder
Illusions illuminate
While your delusions dictate your next move
Youíre bound by deception and a misled direction
So just let go

Our sobriety will diminish
Discriminate we fade slow, fade slow
These drugs will expand us
United we will grow
Let go, Let go, Let go

Thereís a way
A way out of here
Thereís a way
A way out of here
 
So just let go

Our sobriety will diminish
Discriminate we fade slow, fade slow
These drugs will expand us
United we will grow
Let go, Let go


STAMP OF ORIGIN Ė HORIZON

Sitting in the sand watch the tide roll up
Take a deep breath in as your past fades out
Let everything else just fade into the horizon
When the planets stop spinning and the music stops
Take a deep breath in let your life fade out
With everything else youíll fade into the horizon

I'll never leave this place
The place where I was born
I need a little more information
To add to this confusion
These delusions
They aren't meant to justify the things you do
Thankfully, I haven't been taken very seriously
Keep moving onward, keep moving onward
I don't know if I've been reborn
Or lived a past life
Suffered in another time
I am gathering the pebbles I need
To drink from the well
We are all part of this problem
Just let go, just let go, just let go, just let go
