1. "All the Love in the World"

watching all the insects march along
seem to know just right where they belong
smears of face reflecting in the chrome
hiding in the crowd i'm all alone

no one's heard a single word i've said
they don't this good outside my head
it looks as though the past is here to stay
i've become a million miles a--

where do you get all the love in the world?
why do you get all the love in the world?

all the jagged edges disappear
colors all are brighter when you're near
the stars are all afire in the sky
sometimes i get so lonely i could

where do you get all the love in the world?
why do you get all the love in the world?
why do you get all the love in the world?
why do you get all the love in the world?

why do you get all the love in the world?
why do you get all the love in the world?
why do you get all the love in the world? (why do you get all the love in the world?)
why do you get all the love in the world?

why do you get all the love in the world?
why do you get all the love in the world? (why do you get all the love in the world?)
why do you get all the love in the world?
why do you get all the love in the world? (why do you get all the love in the world?)
why do you get all the love in the world? (why do you get all the love in the world?)
why do you get all the love in the world? (why do you get all the love?) (why do you get?)
why do you get all the love? (why do you get?)
why do you get all the love?
why do you get all the love? (why do you get?)
why do you get all the love? (in the world)
why do you get all the love? (all the love in the world)
why do you get all the love? (all the love in the world)
why do you get all the love?
(all the love in the world?)


2. "You Know What You Are?"

I tried to sneak myself through tried to get to the other side
i tried to patch up the cracks and the holes that i have to hide
for a little bit of time even made it work okay
just long enough to really make it hurt
when they figured me out and it all just rotted away

don't you fucking know what you are?
don't you fucking know what you are?
don't you fucking know what you are?
go on get back to where you belong

you better take a good look cause i'm full of shit
with every bit of my heart i have tried to believe in it
you can dress it all up you can try to pretend
but you can't change anything
you can't change anything in the end

don't you fucking know what you are?
don't you fucking know what you are?
don't you fucking know what you are?
go on get back to where you belong

don't you fucking know what you are?

remember where you came from
remember what you are
remember where you came from
remember what you are
remember where you came from
remember what you are
remember where you came from
remember what you are
remember where you came from
remember what you are
remember where you came from
remember what you are
remember where you came from
remember what you are
remember where you came from
remember what you are
remember where you came from
remember what you are

don't you fucking know what you are? (go on get back to where you belong)
don't you fucking know what you are? (go on get back to where you belong)
don't you fucking know what you are? (go on get back to where you belong)
don't you fucking know what you are? (get back to where you belong)


3. "The Collector"

i pick things up
i am a collector
and things, well things they tend to accumulate
i have this net
it drags behind me
it picks up feelings for me to feed upon

there are times, plenty of times i wish i could let it go
but they start to breathe
and they start to grow inside me
there are times, plenty of times i wish i could let it go
but they start to make me think
things i don't wanna know

i'm trying to fit it all inside
i'm trying to open my mouth wide
i'm trying not to choke and
swallow it all
swallow it all
swallow it all
swallow it all

i am the plague
i am the swarm
all your hurt sticks on me and i keep it warm
they make me stay
they won't let me leave
there are so god damn many of them it gets hard to breathe

i'm trying to fit it all inside
i'm trying to open my mouth wide
i'm trying not to choke inside
i am a good boy and i will
swallow it all
swallow it all
swallow it all
swallow it all

every last one every last one every last one every last one
every last one every last one every last one every last one
every last one every last one every last one every last one
every last one every last one every last one every last one
every last one every last one every last one every last one


4. "The Hand That Feeds"

you're keeping in step
in the line
got your chin held high and you feel just fine
'cause you do what you're told
but inside your heart it is black it is hollow and it's cold

just how deep do you believe?
will you bite the hand that feeds?
will you chew until it bleeds?
can you get up off your knees?
are you brave enough to see?
do you wanna change it?

what if this all crusade's a charade
and behind it all there's a price to be paid
for the blood which we dine
justified in the name of the holy and the divine

just how deep do you believe?
will you bite the hand that feeds?
will you chew until it bleeds?
can you get up off your knees?
are you brave enough to see?
do you wanna change it?

so naive
I keep holding on to what i wanna believe
I can see
but i keep holding on and on and on and on

will you bite the hand that feeds you? will you stay down on your knees?
will you bite the hand that feeds you? will you stay down on your knees?
will you bite the hand that feeds you? will you stay down on your knees?
will you bite the hand that feeds you? will you stay down on your knees?
will you bite the hand that feeds you? will you stay down on your knees?
will you bite the hand that feeds you? will you stay down on your knees?
will you bite the hand that feeds you? will you stay down on your knees?
will you bite the hand that feeds you? will you stay down on your knees?


5. "Love Is Not Enough"

the more that we take
the paler we get
i can't remember what it is
we try to forget
the tile on the floor
so cold it could sting
in your eyes
is a place worth remembering
for you to go and take this
to smash it apart
i've gone all this fucking way
to wind up back at--
back at the start

hey, the closer we think we are
well it only got us so far
now you got anything left to show
no no i didn't think so
hey, the sooner we realize
we cover ourselves with lies
but underneath we're not so tough
and love is not enough

well it hides in the dark
like the withering vein
we didn't give it a mouth
so it cannot complain
it never really had a chance (never really had a chance)
we'd never really make it through (never really make it through)
and to think i believed
i beleived i could get better with you

hey, the closer we think we are
well it never got us so far
now you got anything left to show
(no no) no no i didn't think so
hey, the sooner we realize (the sooner we realize)
we cover ourselves with lies
but underneath we're not so tough
and love is not enough
(love is not enough)
(love is not enough)
(love is not enough)
love is not enough
hey


6. "Every Day Is Exactly the Same"

i believe i can see the future
'cause i repeat the same routine
i think i used to have a purpose
but then again
it might have been a dream

i think i used to have a voice
now i never make a sound
and i just do what i've been told
i really don't want
them to come around, oh no

every day is exactly the same
every day is exactly the same
there is no love here, and there is no pain
every day is exactly the same

i can feel their eyes are watching
in case i lose myself again
sometimes i think i'm happy here (sometimes)
sometimes, yet i still pretend

i can't remember how this got started
but i can tell you
exactly how it will end

every day is exactly the same
every day is exactly the same
there is no love here, and there is no pain
every day is exactly the same

i'm writing on a little piece of paper
i'm hoping someday you might find
well i'll hide it behind something
they won't look behind

i am still inside you
a little bit comes bleeding through
i wish this could have been any other way
but i just don't know
i don't know what else i can do

every day is exactly the same
every day is exactly the same
there is no love here, and there is no pain
every day is exactly the same
every day is exactly the same
every day is exactly the same
there is no love here, and there is no pain
every day is exactly the same


7. "With Teeth"

she comes along
she gets inside
she makes you better than anything you've tried
it's in her kiss
the blackest sea
and it runs deeper than you dare to dream it could be

with teeth
with teeth
with teeth
with teeth

wave goodbye
to what you were
the rules have changed
the lines begin to blur

she makes you hard
she comes on strong
you've finally found (finally found)
the place where you belong

with teeth
with teeth
with teeth
with teeth

i cannot go through this again
i cannot go through this again
i cannot go through this again
i cannot go through this again
i cannot go through this again
i cannot go through this again
i cannot go through this again
i cannot go through this again

with teeth
with teeth
with teeth
with teeth

she will not let you go
keeps holding on
she will not let you go
keeps holding on

(this time, i'm not coming back)
she will not let you go
(this time, i'm not coming back)
she will not let you go


8. "Only"

i'm becoming less defined as days go by
fading away
well you might say i'm losing focus
kind of drifting in the abstract
in terms of how i see myself
sometimes i think i can see right through myself
sometimes i think i can see right through myself
(sometimes I can see right through myself)

less concerned about fitting into the world
your world that is
cuz it doesn't really matter anymore (no it doesn't really matter anymore)
no it doesn't really matter anymore
none of this really matters anymore

yes i am alone
but then again i always was
as far back as i can tell i think maybe its because
because you were never really real to begin with
i just made you up to hurt myself
i just made you up to hurt myself
yeah, and i just made you up to hurt myself
i just made you up to hurt myself
yeah, and i just made you up to hurt myself
and it worked
yes it did

there is no you there is only me
there is no you there is only me
there is no fucking you there is only me
there is no fucking you there is only me
only
only
only
only

well the tiniest little dot caught my eye and it turned out to be a scab
and i had this funny feeling like i just knew it's something bad
i just couldn't leave it alone
picking at that scab
there is a doorway trying to seal itself shut
but i climbed through
now i am somewhere i am not supposed to be
and i can see things i know i really shouldn't see
and now i know why, now
now i know why things aren't as pretty on the inside

there is no you there is only me
there is no you there is only me
there is no fucking you there is only me
there is no fucking you there is only me
only
only
only
only
only
only
only
only


9. "Getting Smaller"

getting a little erratic here
and i don't know who to trust
i guess they got a way of reading my mind
i guess i gotta adjust
i got my arms that flip-flop-flip-flop-flip
i got my head on a spring
well i thought i got you on my side
i haven't got fucking anything

i'm just a face in the crowd
nothing to worry about
not even trying to stand out
i'm getting smaller and smaller and smaller
and i have nothing to say
it's all been taken away
i just behave and obey
i'm afraid i am starting to fade away

uh-huh

i kind of see through the cracks
when i press up on the wall
i'm not looking to stand up real high
i'd be happy to crawl
i think i'm losing my grip
but i can still make a fist
you know i still got my one good arm
that i can beat
that i can beat myself up with

i'm just a face in the crowd
nothing to worry about
not even trying to stand out
i'm getting smaller and smaller and smaller
and i have nothing to say
it's all been taken away
i just behave and obey
i'm afraid i am starting to fade away

and for what it is worth
i really used to believe
that maybe there's some great thing
that we can achieve
and now i can't tell the difference
or know what to feel
between what i've been trying so hard to see
and what appears to be real

fading away
fading away
fading away
fading away
my world is getting smaller every day (hey hey hey hey) and that's okay
my world is getting smaller every day (hey hey hey hey) and that's okay
my world is getting smaller every day (hey hey hey hey) and that's okay
my world is getting smaller every day (hey hey hey hey) and that's okay


10. "Sunspots"

sunspots cast a glare in my eyes
sometimes i forget i'm alive

i feel it coming and i've gotta get out of its way
i hear it calling and i come 'cause i can't disobey
i should not listen and i shouldn't believe but i do
yes i do

she turns me on
she makes it real
i have to apologize
for the way i feel

my life it seems has taken a turn
why in the name of god would i ever want to return?

peel off our skin we're gonna burn what we were to the ground
fuck in the fire and we'll spread all the ashes around
i wanna kill away the rest of what's left and i do
yes i do

she turns me on
she makes it real
i have to apologize
for the way i feel

and nothing can stop me now
there is nothing to fear
and everything i'd ever want
is inside of here

whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa inside of here
now i just stare into the sun
and i see everything i've done
i think i could have been someone
but i can't stop what has begun
when everything is said and done
when there is no place left to run
i think i used to be someone
now i just stare into the sun


11. "The Line Begins to Blur"

there are things that i said i would never do
there are fears that i cannot believe have come true
for my soul is too sick and too little and too late
and my self i have grown too weary to hate

the more i stay in here
the more it's not so clear
the more i stay in here
the more i disappear
as far as i have gone
i knew what side i'm on
but now i'm not so sure
the line begins to blur

is there somebody on top of me?
i don't know, i don't know
isn't anybody stopping me?
i don't know, i don't know
well i'm trying to hold my breath
i don't know, i don't know
just how far down can i go?
i don't know, i don't know, i don't know

as i lie here and stare
the fabric starts to tear
it's far beyond repair
and i don't really care
as far as i have gone
i knew what side i'm on
but now i'm not so sure
the line begins to blur

ooh oooh
ooh oooh
ooh oooh
ooh oooh


12. "Beside You in Time"

i am all alone this time around
sometimes on the side i hear a sound
places parallel i know it's you
feel the little pieces bleeding through
and on
this goes on
and on
and on
and on
and on
and on
and on
and on
this goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on

now that i've decided not to stay
i can feel me start to fade away
everything is back where it belongs
i will be beside you before long
and on
this goes on
and on
and on
and on
and on
and on
and on
and on
this goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on

we will never die
beside you in time
we will never die
beside you in time


13. "Right Where It Belongs"

see the animal in his cage that you built
are you sure what side you're on?
better not look him too closely in the eye
are you sure what side of the glass you are on?
see the safety of the life you have built
everything where it belongs
feel the hollowness inside of your heart
and it's all
right where it belongs

what if everything around you
isn't quite as it seems?
what if all the world you think you know
is an elaborate dream?
and if you look at your reflection
is that you want it to be?
what if you could look right through the cracks
would you find yourself--
find yourself afraid to see?

what if all the world's inside of your head
just creations of your own?
your devils and your gods all the living and the dead
and you're really all alone
you can live in this illusion
you can choose to believe
you keep looking but you can't find the woods
while you're hiding in the trees

what if everything around you
isn't quite as it seems?
what if all the world you think you know
is an elaborate dream?
and if you look at your reflection
is that you want it to be?
what if you could look right through the cracks
would you find yourself--
find yourself afraid to see?

hoo hoo, hoo hoo
hoo hoo, hoo hoo
hoo hoo, hoo hoo
hoo hoo, hoo hoo
hoo hoo, hoo hoo
