Cospiracy of One (2000)

Intro


When we're ready to sing
We step up to the microphones
And it comes out something like this

Come Out Swinging


You brace and hold it all inside
It's more than you can stand
No one around even tries
Tries to understand

Don't turn away, don't turn away
Come out swinging
Come out alone
They're in your way
But as long as you're swinging
Strong then you'll get by

Your pacing's wearing out a line
Right beside your bed
The scene replays a million times
Stuck inside your head

And though you stand in place
Your mind escapes
Read between the lies
Smile's on your face
You fake like you're ok

Don't turn away, don't turn away
Come out swinging
Out on your own
They're in your way
You may be stinging
But you'll get by
Don't turn away, don't turn away
Come out swinging
Never alone again
The pain inside can guide your way

Midnight, no sleep
Inside, you scream to
No one, hears you fall
Daylight, prove me today
One more try

Don't turn away, don't turn
Come out swinging
Come out alone
They're in your way
You may be stinging
But you'll get by
Don?t turn away, don't turn away
Come out swinging
Never alone again
Pain inside
Leads you through so you'll get by

Original Prankster

That's what the main man say

Want You Bad


If you could only read my mind
You would know that things between us
Ain't right
I know your arms are open wide
But you're a little on the straight side
I can't lie

Your one vice
Is you're too nice
Come around now can't you see

I want you
All tattooed
I want you bad

Complete me
Mistreat me
Want you to be bad, bad, bad, bad, bad

If you could only read my mind
You would know that I've been waiting
So long
For someone almost just like you
But with attitude, I'm waiting
So come on

Get out of clothes time
Grow out those highlights
Come around now can't you see

I want you
In a vinyl suit
I want you bad

Complicated
X-rated
I want you bad, bad, bad, bad, bad... bad

Don't get me wrong
I know you're only being good
But that's what's wrong
I guess I just misunderstood

I want you
All tattooed
I want you bad

Complicated
X-rated
I want you bad

I mean it
I need it
I want you bad, bad, bad, bad, bad
bad, really really bad

A Million Miles Away


There was a time, looking through myself
Wanting to pretend
If I escaped, I could fill myself
I don't think you can
Been far and wide
But that hole inside
Never really leaves
When I went away, what I really left
Left behind was me

It's telling me
To be on my way home
Million miles away
I can't stay

Each passing day, every passing face
Seems like such a blur
I long to be
Home, silently
Lying next to her
Just to get back, by her side is all
All I need to be
Cause I went away
But what I really left
Left behind was me

I need to be
Getting on my way home
A million miles away
Million miles away
I can't take

Dammit, I Change Again


Hey, come inside
While I stand here acting bold
Can't stand to feel this way
Clear out the cobwebs in my soul

This time I turn around
And things have changed
Now I don't feel the same

Start a fight
I can't defend
One more time
Dammit, I changed again

Now I don't see
Things the way I did before
Can't stand to feel this way
Things I felt yesterday
Don't matter anymore
It doesn't make any sense
To feel so different day to day
(Can't stand to feel this way)
When nothing's changed except for me

Living in Chaos


Somewhere the time was right, could have been gone in ten
This world is hard to fight, hitting you once, hit it again
To know the way it feels, everyone gets knocked down
When you get up it?s real, by taking it back, turn it around

Get on it, up on it
Get on it - wouldn't wanna be you
Get on it, out on it
Get on it - no one?s gonna free you
You know, when you?re keeping it slow
No matter where you wanna go - wouldn?t wanna be you
Get on it, up on it
It's on - we're living in chaos

Somewhere along the line, things get chipped away
This place keeps going down, gets a little worse every day
I see hate and greed, this world?s a messed up town
Embrace the pain and see, by taking it back, you turn it around

Special Delivery


Hey now do you see me down the way
Been watching you everyday
In my car on your street is where I stay
I know you better that way
One day I'll be meeting you for real
You'll feel bad like I feel

It'll blow you away - You're gonna fall for me
And the voices told me
To blow you away - You're gonna fall for me

Hey now well I'm knocking on your door
This special delivery is yours
My infatuation it's true
Hello, I got something for you

It'll blow you away - You're gonna fall for me
And the voices told me
To blow you away - You're gonna fall for me
If you hadn't sold me
I'd still be away - You're right in front of me
Then, I'll be on my way
Breathing you okay

Can't break from my sins
Cannot pray

But you can't kill a man when he's got no hope
You can't kill a man when he's got no hope

One Fine Day


If I had a perfect day
I would have it start this way
Open up the fridge and have a tall boy
Yeah

Then I'd meet up with my friends
Head out to the game again
We don't even really care who wins
Now excitement seems to grow
When we're hangin' with the bro's
When we're chillin' and we pound a case of Stroh's
Now the game is cool to see
You can "High 5" on TV
Count the riot on the one two three
Operation is in sight
And the field is open wide
When you break it then you know you're still alive
If the cops don't make you pay
And you make your getaway
Then you know
That's one fine day

On that day before we're through
We could torch a car or two
Then have ourselves another tall boy
Yeah

Water hoses and batons
That's the real game that's on
I don't really give a shit who wins

I believe it's my god-given right
To destroy everything in my sight
Cause it never gets dull, it never gets old
The only thing it gets is more bold
Drinkin', fightin', going to the game
In our world it's a way to stay sane
If you're asking me
To have it my way, I'd say that's
One fine day

All Along


Deep inside secret's burning
I should have known all the while what's true
I went along, to fool myself
Can't go on, I can't escape it

All along
I think I really knew
It was there in the words unspoken
All along
Still believed in you
Now I leave here betrayed and broken

Close my eyes from the burning
All along all the while it's true
Take it on, or turn your back
Either way, you can't escape it

All along I still believed in you

Denial, Revisited


So here we go
Having the same old fight again
There she goes
Same old game that never ends If I could say
The right words
I know I could make you stay
If I could say
The right words
Things would work out all right

And if you go
I won't believe
That it's forever

And you can go
But I'll never leave
Cause it's not over

Replay last night
Talking it out don't make it right
I know she's tried, but my whole world
Is her and all we've got now

And if you go
I won't believe
That it's forever

I won't let go
Even if she say that it's over
I know it'll be
Different this time
If you'd just stay

And when we wrote this story
How did it end?
It was you and me for all our lives
Come on, don?t say it
We'll try again
And if I'd just hold you
We could last

But she stands softly
Tears down her face
Hitting me, oh god
This is the end
I'd wait here for you
But there's nothing more now I can do
How did you know
How did you know
How did you know
Finally

Vultures


Now I could lie by your side
All serrated for you
Down below cancer grows
Weeping waits inside you too
All our rage begs a stage
It's a waste of time though
And you style seems worthwhile
But this lonely road has turned And you faded there
They pretend to care
Vultures waiting
If you don't like me
Certify Me
Yeah - I don't know
Yeah - I won't go
Yeah - save it I'm okay

And in the sun a loaded gun
Makes for conversation
All the while in denial
It's too late for me to change

And you were unchained
Nothing more had changed
I could fake it
If you still hate me
Confiscate me

Oh we're jaded - I don't know
Overrated - I won't go
All serrated - Save it I'm okay
Okay Yeah I won't play Yeah go away Yeah save it I'm okay

Conspiracy of One


Red over white
It's one last fatal scene
Brought on by someone unseen
Moving on their own
Bring on the night
And bring us all to our knees
All are gone and none agreed
One who acts alone

Nobody wins
Nobody hears us fall
Nobody wins
When it's done
Conspiracy of one
