Just give me your dollars
And I'll save your soul
All this heavenly money
Will buy you control
I eat it up
All you fools, beggars, and thieves
Your religious gimmicks
Will never get past me

Show me what you've really seen
(Stand down for the riothead)
Tell me what you really mean
(Kneel down for the riothead...
and all your sins will be absolved)

Just bring me your children
And I'll kiss their heads
Whisper lies softly
And tuck them in their beds
You make your rules
For the innocent, frail, and weak
You make them listen
But never let them speak

[chorus] x 2

[bridge]

All your reasons and all your rhymes
I've heard it all a million times
Quote the bible line for line
Then sit back and count your dimes

[chorus] x 2

Darker days have taken hold
Nothing learned just getting old
Tongues are split with words like spears
Nothing gained just growing fears
Eyes are blind to the day
Looking for a better way
Tried to fill this empty space
Took me to another place...

Taken what I had - I felt it - its too bad - I know it
Taken what I loved - neglect it - now I know - I miss it
Taken what I thought - erased it - memories - replace it
Taken what I saw - and raped it - never thought -I'd hate it

Biting my lip to bear the pain
Losses greater than the gain
People are liars through and through
One more way to get to you
Fingers crossed revealing the truth
One more thing I lost with youth
These days are sad in their own way
Theres nothing more I can say...

[chorus]

[bridge]

No more reason for me to stay
Don't think I've ever felt this way
You were and angel something more
Broke my heart to love a whore...

No shadow precedes me
Sucked away with your breath
Taking with it everything
Everything that was left

That was all that I had
And this is all that I have

One tiny little memory
Falls away becomes to hard to see
One tiny little memory
All that's left, all for me

Further below the waves of time
I sink
Taking with me what was yours
And what is mine

[chorus]

[bridge]

Fall away - away

[post chorus]

Fall away (fall away)
Away from the light
Crawl away (crawl away)
Out of their sight

[chorus]

I'm a heartbreakin', life-takin',
Soul-rapin' sonuvabitch (yeah)
And you're a two-timin', cheatin', lyin'
Fool if you believe that shit

All my thoughts were so damn lost
But now I'm looking for a better way
Under the skin I'm caving in
Trying to make through another day

If this life of mine is meant for dyin'
Then I think I'll throw it all away
But if you're findin' the truth is unwindin'
Just let me know so I can stay

[chorus]

[bridge]

You know it's not too late
You know it's not too late
Allow me to demonstrate
This is the path of fate

[chorus]
