Cry for Help

Album: The Sound of Madness (2008)
  • You've been hiding out
    For quite a while now
    Living off of people you know
    Trying to raise a little money
    To pay off all the monkeys
    That you met inside the
    Rabbit hole
    You take a payment from
    The white witch that's spoken
    To you with Mama kin?
    Well, there's a wolf outside
    A brick house screaming
    "Is someone gonna blow it in?"

    Because a mind is a weapon
    You see and it's got you on
    Your hands and knees
    Pull the trigger if you got
    A way out, unless you want
    To count it off 1, 2 (1, 2, 3)

    You better pray that there's
    Another way out
    You better pray that
    Someones listening now
    (Doesn't matter what you got)
    'Cause when you lie like
    The devil himself
    No angels gonna hear your
    Cry for help!

    I know you must really think
    It's funny, you had everybody
    Pulling me in
    Well, that's a little unassuming
    Considering that you knew me,
    I'm the only one that called
    You a friend

    Because a mind is a weapon
    You see and it's got you on
    Your hands and knees
    Pull the trigger if you got
    A way out, unless you want
    To count it off 1, 2 (1, 2, 3)

    You better pray that there's
    Another way out
    You better pray that
    Someones listening now
    (Doesn't matter what you got)
    'Cause when you lie like
    The devil himself
    No angels gonna hear your
    Cry for help!

    Count it off, 1, 2 (1, 2, 3)

    You better pray that there's
    Another way out
    You better pray that
    Someones listening now
    (Doesn't matter what you got)
    'Cause when you lie like
    The devil himself
    No angels gonna hear your
    Cry for help!

  • Zero from The Abyss, NjBy they way, this song perfectly describes my cousin.
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjI always thought the lyrics were "smokin' tea with Mama Kin" like the Aerosmith song goes, "Sleepin' late and smokin' tea". Tea, of course, being another word for marijuana.
