Suiciety, an American Band!

Song List



Half Blind

	Too late.
	Roll over to the other side.
	Maybe it will give me peace of mind.
	The universe is mattress size.
	
	I'm fine...
	That's what she said.
	Went to my head.
	Some other time.
	Time, time, time.

	I looked into her half-blind eyes,
	And I tried to run away.

	Too late...
	Figured it out.
	I'm the one to blame that it all went south.
	You came.
	But I just figured it out.
	'Cause I sent you away and you're long gone now.

 
	Your face...
	Takes me away.
	Every single day.
	To a very, very special place.

	Your thighs...
	They mystify me.
	You come to mind,
	At the most awkward of times.
	Time, time, time.

	I looked into your half-blind eyes,
	And I just had to get away.

	Too late.
	Figured it out.
	I'm the one to blame that it all went south.
	You came.
	But I just figured it out.
	So I sent you away and you're long gone now.

	Too late.
	Figured it out.
	I'm the one to blame that it all went south.
	You came to me.
	But I just figured it out.
	'Cause I sent you away and you're long gone.

Instinct

	So you want me...
	Yet you left me...
	But you forgot about the fact,
	Never forget me.
	
	If you need me,
	Then believe me.
	I'll teach you about the fact.
	I'm never coming back.
	
	Who knew you'd run away, run away?
	God knows you're running on instinct.
	
	Look into my eyes
	Blind to your advances
	Let me hear your muted cries
	I can't hear you
	
	'Cause now you're someone else's girl
	So get the fuck back in line and tell the world.
	I can't see you.
	I can't see you anymore.
	
	Knocked up, knocked down,
	Your world is spinning round and round.
	It's never gonna go your way.
	Nothing new here.
	
	Left out, scream and shout,
	Wonder what it's all about,
	Down on your knees to pray.
	To Suiciety.
	
	Look into my eyes
	Blind to your advances
	Let me hear your muted cries
	I can't hear you
	
	'Cause now you're someone else's girl
	So get the fuck back in line and tell the world.
	I can't see you.
	I can't see you anymore.
	
	The circle keeps you running 'round,
	Making your way back to the sacred ground.
	I see you screaming, but I hear no sound.
	You hear me laughing when I'm not around.
	
	Look into my eyes
	Blind to your advances
	Let me hear your muted cries
	I can't hear you
	
	'Cause now you're someone else's girl
	So get the fuck back in line and tell the world.
	I can't see you.
	I can't see you anymore.

Gutterslut

	So this is how it ends.
	Breathing is an exercise
	In futility.
	Delivery of heartache and satin,
	Flattered by a new surprise.
	It's a virulent action.

	So this is what her love portends,
	Mellowed by the truth in lies,
	By the daydream that never ends.
	She tells labyrinth fortunes.
	It's habitual.
	She's a prisoner of ritual.

	Guess she'll dedicate her life to the barflies...

	Because she sells everyday moonshine.
	Out under the starlight.
	She sells everyday moonshine.
	She's obsessed with her dark side.
	She sells everyday moonshine.
	Among the glow of the fireflies.
	She sells everyday moonshine.
	Just a gutterslut in everyone's eyes.

	So this is where it all begins.
	Daydreams are a paradox.
	In the curves of a teardrop.
	She sells her delirium,
	Like candy,
	Under the leash of reality.

	Silken hands make suicide girlfriends...

	She sells everyday moonshine.
	Out under the starlight.
	She sells everyday moonshine.
	She's obsessed with her dark side.
	She sells everyday moonshine.
	Among the glow of the fireflies.
	She sells everyday moonshine.
	Just a gutterslut in everyone's eyes.

	So this is how it ends.
	Breathing is an exercise
	in futility.
	She sells her delirium,
	Like candy,
	Under the leash of reality.

	I guess she'll have to live her life with the barflies...

	She sells everyday moonshine.
	Out under the starlight.
	She sells everyday moonshine.
	She's obsessed with her dark side.
	She sells everyday moonshine.
	Among the glow of the fireflies.
	She sells everyday moonshine.
	Under the leash of reality.

	... just a gutterslut in everyone's eyes.

Thirty Days

	Thirty days and counting...
	Since I last felt your heartbeat pounding.
	I climbed a mountain,
	A breakaway to bring you around again.

	Paralyzed by slow dreams,
	They're gonna steal me away.
	Frightened by the impossibilities.

	All the girls I've loved
	Are all the girls I've hated.
	They all remind me of myself.
	And all the girls I love,
	They keep me sedated.
	I keep them around,
	So they can be found,
	When I'm feeling down.
 
	Thirty days and counting...
	Since you found me fearful, crouching.
	Coins in the fountain,
	Wishing I could reach the bottom rung, and then...

	Hide behind a smokescreen,
	'Till they convince me to stray.
	Battered by my old insecurities.

	All the girls I've loved
	Are all the girls I've hated.
	They all remind me of myself.
	And all the girls I love,
	They keep me sedated.
	I keep them around,
	So they can be found,
	When I'm feeling down.

	Thirty days and counting...
	Since I caught you sleeping around again.
	If I were a strong man,
	I'd find a way to drag you back to me again.

	Twisted by the coke dreams,
	What a waste of a day.
	Shattered by the improbabilities.
	
	All the girls I've loved
	Are all the girls I've hated.
	They all remind me of myself.
	And all the girls I love,
	They keep me sedated.
	I keep them around,
	So they can be found,
	When I'm feeling down.

	All the girls I've loved
	Are all the girls I've hated.
	They all remind me of myself.
	But all the girls I love,
	They're so appreciated.
	I keep them around,
	So they can be found,
	When I'm feeling down.

Lower Your Expectations

	Staring blindly at the break of dawn,
	In a delirium,
	I'm undoubtedly gone.
	Can I break into the slipstream?
	It's a coke dream.
	I undoubtedly won't.

	Ears pounding from the waves abreak,
	I'm on the beach it's late,
	And I'm undoubtedly baked.
	Wind sounding out it's bitter hate,
	It speaks to me of fate.
	If we ever go on another date.

	Why should I expect you,
	To understand the things that I can't comprehend?

	Lower your expectations.
	Who is it you thought that you had won?
	Lower your expectations.
	It's not as if you thought I was someone else.

	I tried to tell you,
	But you never listened to me in the first place.
	I tried to lie to you,
	Implied we're all but through.
	
	I'd paint the sky with you,
	But you wouldn't let me out into the open space.
	I thought I'd fly with you,
	Instead I died for you.

	But why should I respect you,
	If you won't wait until I'm upright on my useless feet again?

	Lower your expectations.
	Who is it you thought you had won?
	Lower your expectations.
	It's not as if you thought I was someone else.

Suicide King

	Stop me if you hear me lie,
	But I know you want to play tonight.
	Because the one-eyed jack is at my side,
	And he's telling you to wrap your legs around me tight.
	
	Your body's sin, the devil's scream,
	And all I want to be
	Is your suicide king.
	
	Well I see you standing naked,
	Your body drenched within my sweat.
	Thinking what I'll do to you,
	As I lie here on your satin sheeted bed.
	
	Your body's sin, the devil's scream,
	And all I want to be
	Is your suicide king.
	
	So lay me down at your bedside,
	Stroke my body, leave me hypnotized
	'Cause the one eyed jack is on my side,
	And his shackles and chains will hold you 'till you die.
	
	Your body's sin, the devil's scream,
	And all I want to be…
	Is your suicide king.

Whirlwind

	It's an ordinary forecast.
	My clouded head will clear by afternoon.
	But I am permanently whiplashed.
	When you return,
	the fog will roll across the room.
	
	Like a dummy in a car crash,
	High-sided on a foolish whim.
	I'm on the verge of a total collapse.
	
	I know I never had much to say.
	I just wanted the world to drop away.
	Sometimes I feel like…
	I'm caught in…
	A whirlwind.

Starving Leech

	So, you think you know me,
	Understand my misery,
	Try to see inside my head,
	You've lost touch with reality.
	
	Do you really want to help me?
	How much burden can you carry?
	It's my soul you seek to bury.
	Suck my blood, you are a flea.
	
	As if you could ever know me,
	The starving leech who tries to blow me.
	Not like you don't owe me.
	Ok, whatever you say.
	
	Go on, ask me what I'm thinking.
	Senseless thoughts of homicide.
	Lord, I'm drunk but I'm not drinking.
	You trusted me, I lied.
	
	Don't think I don't realize,
	Love me for my body, my mind despise.
	You brain lies right between your thighs.
	Once again, betrayed by your eyes.

Symptoms of Heavy Petting

	Well I left my home in Brownsville,
	With its toothache for a wife.
	Stashed my things in Mexico,
	I can live without them for awhile.
	
	I drove across America,
	Seeking solace, seeking quiet.
	Now I sleep beside the interstate,
	With a bottle by my side.
	
	Back home they call me Lucifer.
	And they hound me, they hound me.
	It's a front porch changing massacre.
	All around me, it confounds me.
	
	These things I've put behind me,
	Looking backwards, looking backwards.
	Tend to reappear ahead of me, yeah.
	Going forwards in reverse.
	
	By this time tomorrow,
	I'll be coming back to sacrifice
	The life I had to borrow, yeah.
	Going forwards in reverse.
	
	So I drove a thousand miles,
	Trying to pick up what I'd lost.
	But I never stopped to figure out,
	How to factor in the cost.
	
	You can't try to change America,
	She'll ignore you every time.
	'Cause she sleeps inside the interstate.
	Don't know nothing about tomorrow,
	But I'm free tonight.
		
	Back home they call me Lucifer.
	And they hound me, they hound me.
	It's a front porch changing massacre.
	All around me, it confounds me.
	
	These things I've put behind me,
	Looking backwards, looking backwards.
	Tend to reappear ahead of me, yeah.
	Going forwards in reverse.
	
	By this time tomorrow,
	I'll be coming back to sacrifice
	The life I had to borrow, yeah.
	Going forwards in reverse.
	
	Take the road that lies before me.
	Let the time just slip away.
	Try to resurrect your memory.
	But the time, it just slips away.
	
	These things I've put behind me,
	Looking backwards, looking backwards.
	Tend to reappear ahead of me, yeah.
	Going forwards in reverse.
	
	By this time tomorrow,
	I'll be coming back to sacrifice
	The life I had to borrow, yeah.
	Going forwards in reverse.
