B-Sides Collection | Lyrics

Cages
(Hess / Lesperance)

Life impure has challenged your will from the start
Minds and human nature irreparably marred
Lies have fueled the fountain of leaking regard
Blind and cruel through the fear and the doubt
Faith is leading us out of our
Cages
Rebelling the human ruin
In stages
Indifference consuming you
For a violent new moon
Pride and truth can carry the flesh through the hard times
Can you a nation of cancerous clots
Bind into people emphatically charmed
Tried and true
Through the fear and the doubt
Faith is bringing us out of our
Cages
Rebelling the human ruin
In stages
Indifference consuming you
Some pages of life still eluding you
Contagious
Indifference consuming you
For a violent new moon

Life impure has challenged your will from the start
Minds and human nature irreparably marred
The crowning jewel that jealously feeds from the heart
Writhe and brute
A dynasty falls so divided we crawl into our

Mirror, The
(Hess)

Pride besieged
Has fallen on the day
Now God and me
Have come to pave the way to hell

I'm not in the mirror
Just a crack pipe and sinner
In holy ruin
Don't save me I just don't care
About 'no cold in Nevada'
And how the fault lines don't shatter over you
Don't tell me I just don't care
Vines and weeds
Are growing on the blade
It's not like me
To point and place the blame
But funny how the wings grow
That fly away religion
They breed the lost and plead insane
But wanna be loved
But instead

I hate to feel
When I hate the world
I really hate the real
I really hate the world
I really hate the real

When peace and love
Absolve the voice completely
Fear and lust
A darker war I'm deeper in

Surrender  (Cheap Trick cover)
(Rick Nielsen)

Mother told me, yes, she told me I'd meet girls like you.
She also told me, "Stay away, you'll never know what you'll catch."
Just the other day I heard a soldier falling off some Indonesian junk that's going round.

Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird.
Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away, ay, ay, ay.

Father says, "Your mother's right, she's really up on things."
"Before we married, Mommy served in the WACS in the Philippines."
Now, I had heard the WACS recruited old maids for the war.
But mommy isn't one of those, I've known her all these years.

Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird.
Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away, ay, ay, ay.

Whatever happened to all this season's losers of the year?
Ev'ry time I got to thinking, where'd they disappear?
When I woke up, Mom and Dad are rolling on the couch.
Rolling numbers, rock and rolling, got my Kiss records out.

Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird.
Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away, ay, ay, ay.

Away.
Away.

Repeat Chorus 7x

Wasted Time
(Hess / Lesperance)

You hold tight onto the razor blade
It cut you down from grace
Now the model of disgrace

You've rolled dice
Consumed to hide your age
You're old meat at the plate
Now avoided like the plague

A swan dive into reality
A cold bite
You feel inside
The path you left behind

Never dies
In my heart it's all been wasted time
So I'll never mind
In my heart it's all been wasted time

You won't find a pool of sympathy
Jump in as you please
And be rid of your disease

Your whole life
Burning at the stake
And old pretending fake
I'm enjoying your mistake

Without You
(Hess / Lesperance)

Climbed these walls
For hours that feel like days
From highs I fall
To watching the pain drying
The walls that I walked through
And the truth bent
To get to you
'Cause I need you
Where do I belong
Won't get through all my bleak moods
Without you
My resolve
Is a tower that fails to break
Life's a bomb
That can blow you eight ways from Sunday
Blue surrounds me
Blue all around me
Only you can change the tides
Hoping you can decide our fate

So Blind  (Acoustic)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Headlines detach us from the world
Throwing all compassion overboard
Like big flies circling the corpse
It's getting more disgraceful than before

What will we ride
When this horse dies
Will eat the shit and jump in

With both feet in the fire
Rubbing ignorance into our eyes
We're blind, so blind
To all the world's injustice
We're so blind

In their sick minds
They justify it all
Emotionally straying from the course
For the big prize
A hundred million whores
Raping all humanity and more

Climb The Gate  (Acoustic Live '98)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Born so we could lay
In a burning bed of rusted nails
Now it's my cause to stay awake

Will human kind prevail
Over prophecies of godless rages
For a world that's gone astray

Save preaching better times
They're bitter lies
Hey I could always climb the gate

It's heaven I hold this time

The comet's on the way
On holy ground we'll walk with angels
I just hope it's not today

I find it hard to pray
With one foot in my mouth
And one in the grave
Well so much for staying sane

Without You  (Acoustic Live '98)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Climbed these walls
For hours that feel like days
From highs I fall
To watching the pain drying
The walls that I walked through
And the truth bent
To get to you
'Cause I need you
Where do I belong
Won't get through all my bleak moods
Without you
My resolve
Is a tower that fails to break
Life's a bomb
That can blow you eight ways from Sunday
Blue surrounds me
Blue all around me
Only you can change the tides
Hoping you can decide our fate

Change Comes Around  (Acoustic)
(Hess / Lesperance)

This is my rollercoaster
I ride it everyday
It's a mirror of my emotions
I want to wish it all away

News flash of the century
Story of the day
If you wanna see mountains crumble
You can watch it any day

When I come down
It's hard to get it straight
I gotta find me a better way

Whenever the light is gone
You're not the only one
Breaking down
When all your faith is gone
Don't let it pull you under
Change comes around
Sail on to higher ground
Hiding from the thunder
I think we'd all agree
That facing fear don't help us
Escape reality

When I come down
It's hard to get it straight
I gotta live with what I say

Turn Around  (Acoustic Live '98)
(Hess / Lesperance)

I should apologize
For my new compromise
A temporary disease

Another dumb mistake
To think that you would change
Now I'm admitting defeat

Well I knew what this would mean
But still I let myself get back into it
It's time to turn around

If your not careful
She'll rip your heart out
And shove it in your mouth

Now I took all the blame
Off my little brain
And said 'the devil made me'
Put the turpentine
In her carafe of wine
And I got a reprieve

Hard To Love  (Acoustic Live '98)
(Ward / Hess / Lesperance)

You come on like a sweet child here drive me wild when I want you
You giving me a rough time then you change your mind then you want me
You come so close, but you never stay
You take my heart, and then you walk away

You're hard to love, but it's hard to let you go
I need you now, but I'm afraid of letting you know
It's hard to love, and never understand
How it slips right through your hands

I wanna say you're mine but acting like you don't know me
All I need is one night just to make it right when you're lonely
I got to know if we can make it last

Can't pretend I don't want you to know
Every touch leaves your mark on me
Little things seem to haunt me now
I can't believe you've become a part of me

Good Enough
(Hess / Lesperance)

Hovering right above the waterline
But I'm feeling like a stone
Floating down towards the emptiness
Should I leave this boat for shore

When I think of all the years
That I've wasted on my fears
But I've come around
And won't be found
Wondering if I'm gonna ever be

Good enough to be the one
Ever good enough to change this dark to light
Ever good enough to bring this ghost to life
Ever good enough to make it right
I'm in need of some attention
Cause I've been speaking to a wall
Coming down from my utopia
Living sweet lengthens the fall

If I gambled on the breeze
With my luck I'd never breathe
But I've come around
And won't be found
Wondering if I'm gonna ever be

Blue  (Live '97)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Now that I've swam into waters I never wanted to
I'm in hook, line and sinker
I want another life that comes with a guarantee
And batteries so I have strength for you

Since you came undone
A despondent fool
Swimming with chains in the river
A drowning soul
The queen of lies turns blue

Now I've figured out your conscience has never been awakened
Asleep your days of a holy child
Alive are your venomous teeth biting in me
So I've paved the road to ruin

Since you came undone
A despondent fool
Swimming in chains in the river
A drowning whore
The queen of lies turns blue

No Justice  (Live '97)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Freedom burns forever in the holy sun
It leads us into a battle that's never won

Whatever I take
Or whatever I give
Doesn't seem to matter anymore
When there's no

Justice in the world
No justice in the world
You feed the fire when you say it's all over
No justice in the world
When you realize that the devil's got your number

It's your decision
To walk the mile when the road is long
It's like religion wasting our lives on a
Worthless cause
Whatever I take
Or whatever I give
Doesn't seem to matter anymore
When there's no

When will freedom shine for us
No, it ain't over, no

More Than You'll Ever Know
(Hess / Lesperance)

You played what seemed to be
A pawn who played the queen
We chant and knelt in turn
Persuades us to believe
That the smoke that's in the breeze
Won't stale our breath and word

All in all, these little things
That used to bring me comfort
Now just feel so real and wrong
I'm blue

More than you'll ever know
More than you'll ever know
I've been reaching for the cold demise
More than you'll ever know
It's more, winning every prize
Radiate the need
From the cesspools made by greed
'Til the truth and flesh has heard
Now fate just seems to be
A wound that never bleeds
Now the world at rest is one

All in all, these little things
That used to bring me comfort
Now just feel so real and wrong
I'm blue

More than you'll ever know
More than you'll ever know
I've been reaching for the cold demise
More than you'll ever know
It's more, winning every prize
