Do What You Do

Album: The New Game (2008)
  • Lips bleed from the rings,
    All these little bruises, the little things,
    That provoke the segregation.
    Lead the separation.
    Cage and clip the wings.
    Little noises, the little screams,
    That stop the operation.
    Conscious amputation.

    Just do what you do,
    What you do, what you did to me.
    Now I'm stuck in between a rock and nowhere,
    With nothing,
    With no one.
    Just do what you do,
    What you do, what you've done to me.
    Draw the chalk line around the scene, it's over,
    Now it's all over.

    Like a heart that's lost it's beat.
    A little boy, that softly weeps,
    Overwhelmed with emotion,
    Views burns through explosion.
    Lost the forest through the trees
    Little whispers, the little dreams,
    That sparked the recollection.
    Constant suffocation.


    I can feel my life is changing,
    I can feel my heart is jaded,

    Left the sticks,
    Left the stones,
    Words don't hurt,
    Mend the bones.
    I can feel my life is changing.


    Erase the past and leave the pain,
    Cleanse the wounds and forget the name.
    Lost the will, ran far away,
    So it's all over.

    Spread the ash and fill the grave,
    Lost the tongue and make my way.
    Do what you do and go away,

  • Eugene from Minneapolis, MnI really cannot stand Mudvayne which my first rule of thumb. I saw that it was the most played song on rock radio for the week of 2-13-08. Thus, I wanted to see what all the hype was about. I have to say this is a pretty darn awesome song with a hand full of energy!
