Out to Pasture

Album: Mudvayne (2009)

  • Like a worm boring through cinders and rock and ash I think I need a broom
    To sweep away the day cleanse us of the shame we're in I'm in
    Like a stray with the mange runs and lies and man
    I think I need to bathe to wash away the day
    Cleanse us of the past and rid me of the taste

    [Chorus]
    You keep leading me you keep driving me you keep pushing me out to pasture to graze
    Can't keep strangling cant keep ignoring me cant keep judging me
    Climbing a clock tower you keep telling us
    You keep shoving us you keep forcing us out to pasture to graze
    You stopped listening you stopped listening you stopped hearing me
    So I'm loading my gun

    Like a bum sifting through dumpsters and trash and garbage
    I think I need some food I've starved away all day
    Cleanse us of the hunger we're in
    I'm in like a snake sliding through sand and the dirt and desert I think I need a tomb
    To blacken out the day peel me from the sun and keep me in my place

    [Chorus]

    It seems to me there are so many things they don't want to share
    Now doesn't that seem strange it seems to me
    It's all for one but doesn't it seem strange that no one's for none
    Not you not me no one and doesn't it seem strange that we don't know a thing
    Doesn't it feel the same as the cattle out to graze

    Don't you think it's strange that we can't find our way
    Don't you feel the same doesn't it seem strange that we don't know a thing
    Doesn't it feel the same as the cattle out to graze
    Don't you think it's strange that we cant find our way don't you feel the same

    [Chorus] Writer/s: CHAD L. GRAY, GREG TRIBBETT, MATTHEW MCDONOUGH, RYAN MARTINIE
