Album: Evil Empire (1996)
  • Yeah ya tryin' ta tire me, tire me
    I can see you in front of me, front of me
    Ya tryin' ta tire me, tire me
    Why don't you get from in front of me?
    Oh she's got everyone's eyes
    Yeah!
    In every home there's a sickening distress
    Yeah!
    Of roll that film she's a precious, a precious one
    But we're all gonna, nah we're already dead!
    We're already dead!

    And those colorful words for tha Laos frontiers-man
    Who passed away with the truth
    Amidst the eulogies of bliss
    Who will know now what I know about you?
    Now that history's a flowery cancerous mess
    Yeah ya tryin' ta tire me
    A mess!
    Overbearing yes ya tryin' ta tire me
    A mess!
    Yeah ya tryin' ta tire me, tire me
    So get the fuck from in front of me
    Nah let's see it broken, bloody and undressed!
    We're already dead!

    In a violent time

    I want to be Jackie Onassis
    I want to wear a pair of dark sunglasses
    I want to be Jackie O
    Oh oh oh oh please don't die!
    Yeah ya tryin' ta tire me, tire me
    I can see you in front of me, front of me
    Ya tryin' ta tire me, tire me
    Why don't you get from in front of me?
    Ruh!
    We're already dead!
    We're already dead!
    We're already dead! Writer/s: BRAD J WILK, TIMOTHY COMMERFORD, TOM MORELLO, ZACK M DE LA ROCHA
